THE CALL OF GIDEON.
LF.BSON TKXT-Ju1bmi 6:1MS. S3-40,
read entire clinptrr.
GOLDEN TEXT-nienaed Is the mn
whom thou choowdt. Vb. 65-4.
Wo have before us now tho fourth
apostasy, and servitude of Israel, ono.
which scorns to have affected chiefly
tho four northernmost tribes (v. 35).
In preparation for tho cull and work
of Qldeon, tho sixth Judge, "tho chil
dren of Israel cried unto heaven," nnd
God sent unto them a prophet who en
couraged their flagging faith In Jeho
vnh and turned them back to him
(G:l-10). Tho now impoverished and
overridden Israelites, who hnd enjoyed
prosperity after their former deliver
ance, had agnln dono evil nnd must
first Judgo their sin nnd obey tho voice
of Jehovah before they could rccolvo
a messago of liopo and deliverance
through ono of Johovnh'H prophets.
God'o Call to Gideon.
I. Gideon In Prayer, vv. 11-13. That
tho "nngel of Jehovah' was a mani
festation of Jehovah Is clear from ti
enreful rending of verst 13. Thcro tho
first use of the word "lord" Is not cap
italized, whereas in o second in-
stanco it 1b caHtaltzed This nngel
was a foreshadowing o tho Incarn'n
Hon in Jesus of Nazareth. Ho Is clearly
identified with Jehovah (eeo Judges
2:1, 2; Gen. 1G:10. 13, R. V.). It was
thus that Abraham saw "my day"
(John 8:5C). "Tho angel of tho Lord"
at no time appears after Jesus camo,
as tho revised text bIiows. Tho no
madic Midlanltcs brought ruin to Is
raol as tho bitter fruit of its sin. Then
was uttered the cry for relief (Ps. 130).
Tho father of Gideon is passed by, for
bo woe a worshiper of Daal (v. 25).
They who bear the vessels of tho Lord,
those through whom ho works, must
havo clean hands. God's call to Gid
eon came to htm (1) while ho was
alone, as ho was threshing wheat In
the hiding place of a winepress, for
he daro not thresh in the customary
open place of a threshing floor. This
call camo. to him (2) as ho was faith
fully performing his duty, that one
nearest bis hand (v. 11, Ex. 3:1, 2;
Lulto 2:8, 9).
11. Gideon In Doubt, vv. 13-16. Gid
eon's thought must havo been ono ol
amazement as well as of doubt. Ills
question, "Why then Is all this befal
len us?" was a most natural one and
ono that men even now are asking
when they are in great trouble. Suf
fering nnd misery aro not all to be laid
at God's door, though he permit it, but
chiefly at tho door of sin (Pb. 77:7-9;
Isa. 49:1, 2). It is possible that Gid
eon had not yet recognized his heav
enly visitor (cf. v. 21). The name
Gideon means "Hewer" or "Treefeller"
and indicates, as all eastern names do,
something of his personal character
or appearance. Hence the significance
of v. 14. Tho Lord In the person ol
the angel looked upon him and said,
seeing all of his natural qualifications,
but with tho emphasis upon the "I"
"Go in thy might . . . have not
Gideon Was the Agent.
III. Gideon Assured, vv. 33-35. Gid
eon's first net on being assured of this
heavenly communication was ono of
worship (vv. 17-26). His second one
was to tako ten picked men and over
throw the altar to Baal, thereby dem
onstrating tho impotence of Baal and
tho futility of calling upon him for
deliverance. The tribesmen at onco
light upon him as having performed
this act and demand his death from
Joash, his father, who seems to have
been a sort of caretaker of the idol
(v. 25). These same men later become
Gideon's enthusiastic followers (vv.
34, 35). Gideon thus translated theory
into action and gained confidence. It
was one man against tho community,
and to further rebuke them ho erected
an altar to Jehovah (v. 28).
IV. Gideon's Caution, vv. 36-40. Spur
geon said that ho never entered his
pulpit to preach without trembling,
nnd Gideon would have been mora
than human, even after assembling his
army, had life been absolutely free from
doubts. Wo should nover place an
"If" beforo any of God's promises, and
Jesus reprimanded those of his day
when they demanded a "sign" (won
der), but Gideon proved his heroism
in part by his caution. Gideon was
afraid of himself but was sure of God.
Onco assured of God's leading he was
willing to lead 300 men against the
overwhelming force of bis enemies. If
such a demand was a weakness God
dealt with it with marvelous patlcnco
and tenderness, Just as ho condescends
to treat our weaknesBoe. The very life
of tho nation Is at stake, everything de
pends upon udeon'w bucccss or failure.
Caution and courage are never far
apart. Caution i tho soul of courage.
Tho fleece suggests a "figure of for
lorn Israel;" tho dew, tho presence ot
the Holy Spirit. In the old dispensa
tion tho dew rested upon Israol while
others wero dry. In this dispensation
Israel is dry whllo tho dew of God
rests upon tho nations.
"When God calls lift your soul In
prayer and follow In tho direction it
leads. As you lift your soul before
God it will war or wano. If It wanes,
abandon it; if it waxes, follow it,
though nil hell attempt to stay you."
