If by "Making tho World Christian"
the lesson committee means tho con
version of the world In this dispensa
tion by the preaching of the gospel,
then we submit thnt they arc In error,
leading the people Into false hopes.
The main text chosen for our study
pictures are the glorious coming ago
when Christ shall reign over the whole
earth. Doforo this will take placo
Christ shall come In person nnd de
stroy the works of the devil nnd bind
him nnd enst him Into the pit (Rev.
19:11-21; II Thess. 2:3-10).
I. Tho Reign of Mecslah the Klnpj
1. Messiah's lineage (v. 1). It was
to lie of David's line roynl stock. A.
rod or twig was to come out of Jesse,
which Indicates that the royal house
was in n depressed state.
2. Messiah's qualification (v. 2). (1) '
The Spirit of the Lord, that is, a di
vine person proceeding from tho
Fnther nnd Son. (2) Spirit of wis
dom, giving Insight Into nil things
human nnd divine. (8) Spirit of tinder
stunding, thnt Is, to choose that which
Is highest and best. (4) Spirit of
counsel, that Is, the ability to mako
plans. (5) Spirit of might, thnt is,
the ability to execute Ills plans. (0)
Spirit of knowledge, that Is, tho
ability to perceive tho will of God
In all things. (7) The fear of tho
Lord, that Is, reverential and obedient
3. The chnructer of Messiah (vv.3-5).
(1) Quick to understand goodness
(v. 3). (2) He shull not Judge nfter
external appearances (v. 3). (3) Shall
not decide upon henrsny (v. 3). Each
case shall be decided upon on tho
bnsls of absolute and perfect knowl
edge. (!) He shull defend nnd nvengo
the poor and meek of the earth (v. !).
The nicek shnll Inherit the earth when
Messiah reigns (Matt. 5:5). (5) Shall
smite the enrth (v. 4). Those whom
He smites nro the. ungodly Inhnbltnnts
who nre then In federation ngalnst
Christ. The bend of this federation
Is the Antichrist (2 Thess. 2:8). (0)
He shnll hnvo a zeal for justice and
truth (v. 5).
4. Universal pence (vv. 00). This
Is o picture of the glorious golden ngo
of which poets have sung and for
which tln wise men of nil tiges huvo
longed and looked. There will then
be peace not only between men, but
between nnlinnls. This peace nnd
harmony Is shown In thut In each
change suggested each unlinal Is
coupled with Its nntural prey. (1)
The wolf shnll dwell with the lnmb
(v. 0). 'Dwell" mentis Intimacy, as If
tho lamb should receive the wolf Into
Its home. The only plnco nnd circum
stance nt present In which the wolf
and lnmb dwell together Is when tho
lnmb Is Inside the wolf. (2) Tho
leopnrd shull lie down with the kid
(v. 0). (8) The cnlf, young Hon, nnd
fntllng shnll be together (v. 0). They
nre so gentle nnd peaceable that n
little child can lend them. (4) Tho
cow nnd tho benr shnll feed together
(v. 7). (5) The lion shnll ent strnw
(v. 7), no longer flesh. (0) Tho suck
ing child shall play on the hole of
the asp (v. 8). Tho most venomous
serpent shnll not harm little children.
This blessed condition shall prevail
over the whole earth (v. O).
5. All nations shall gather unto him
(vv. 10-12). Tho glorious reign of
Christ shnll attract the Gentllo na
tions. This Is the full purpose, of
the kingdom, namely, to attract tho
nations of the earth to Jesus Christ.
II. The Supreme Obligation of De
livers In This Age (Acts 1:0-0). While
we are not responsible for bringing
In the kingdom, wo nro under solemn
obligation to witness of tho salvation
which Is graciously provided for all
who will believe on Christ.
1. Tho disciples' question (v. G)
They were preplexcd ns to the tlmo
of the kingdom's estnbllshment. Thoy
were right In tho expectntlou of tho
kingdom, but were still In darkness
ns to the real purpose of God In
calling the church.
2. Christ's answer (vv. 7, 8). ne
turned their attention from tho deslro
to know times nnd seasons, which be
long to God, to their supremo duty.
They wero to bo witnesses of Christ
to the uttermost parts of tho earth,
beginning at Jerusalem.
When yo renp tho hnrvest of your
land, thou shnlt not wholly renp tho
corners of thy field, neither shnlt thou
gather the gleanings of thy linrvest.
Thou shnlt leave them for tho poor,
nnd stranger. I am tho Lord, your
God. Leviticus 10:0, 10.
Walketh In Darkness,
lie thnt huteth his brother Is In
darkness, and walketh In dnrkness,
and knowoth not whither ho goeth,
because that darkness hath blinded
tals eyes. I John 2:11.
