Perhaps the hist way to teach this
lesson will be to note the message of
the Individual piophets.
I. The Mcssaoe of Isaiah (Na
1. Its Central Fact (v. 1). Israel's
light, her lledeeiner, has come. The
primary inclining of this Is not the in
carnation of the Hcdeemer, hut His
manifestation in glory and power as
He comes back to this earth to reign
as Israel's King This glorious fuct
is presented under the llgure of a
bright .sunrlslng. It will be u glorious
morning without clouds dawning upon
u (lark w oi Id.
2. The Ulnglng Summons (v. 1).
Messiah himself calls Israel to arouse
herself fie.n her Ion: sleep of In
dllTeniue and r.hlne forth hi the glnrj
of her glorious king.
3. The D.irUcncd F.nrih (v. 2). In
spite of all the progress of the arts
and sciences spiritual darkness
blindness touching spiritual things
has settled down upon the earth. It
will be peculiarly gioss In the last
days. It can only be dispelled by the
glorious appearing of the Lord.
4. The messed Kesult (v. 3). The
(entile nation shall come Into the
light, being uttracted to Zlon by the
appearing of the Lord. In the midst
of such darkness the sudden appear
ing of the light shall attract the na
tions nnd draw them to Jerusalem.
II. The Mintage of Jonah (Jonah
Jonah was comninnded by the Lord
to go to the wicked city Nineveh and
proclaim its destruction In forty days.
He started In die opposite direction In
order to escape this unpleasant task.
A storm came up and the superstitious
suitors threw him overboard. He was
swallowed by a great fish and after
three days and nights was cast upon
the shore. Having learned thu needed
lesson he went to Nineveh and
preached with inch earnestness that
the whole city repented. The mercy
shown by the Lord In sparing this
wicked city so angered Jonah that he
went out of the city and improvised
u shelter where he could see whether
Ood would really destroy Nineveh. To
protect tho prophet, God made a
gourd to (julckly spring up and throw
a shade over him. When the gourd
died and left Jonah exposed to tho
burning sun he prayed for death. The
particular message of Jonah Is thnt
(Sod is great in mercy to all the na
tions when they penitently turn unto
Him from their slrs.
III. The Mausage of Mlcah (MIruh
In Ibis message the prophet portrays
the blessings of the Messiah's king
dom In Hik la'st days. Three thing
1. The Siiptemacy of Ills Kingdom
(v. 1). It shall be exalted above ull
the kingdoms of the earth, its glory
Miall attract the people from afar.
2. The Uxtent of It (v. 2). Many
nations shall come with the urgent re
quest thnt others accompany them.
Tho kingdom of Messiah shall be uni
versal, It shall extend from sen to sea
nnd from the river to the ends of the
II. It Sliall Krlug Peace (v. 3). Kn
nilty will then be taken from men's
hearts nn-1 they will love each other.
When their honrts are changed they
will no longer wage war against each
other, they will oven destroy their
Implements of warfare. War will con
tinue till men's hearts are regener
ated. The way to get wars to cease
Is to get men to love Jesus Christ.
IV. The Message of Zephanlah
Kcphnnhih declares that following
tho Judgment upon the nations God
will turn thu people from their Im
pure speech so that they may call upon
lllm. Ilo declares that God's will Is
that all nations turn from their filthy
conversation and call upon Him. Ho
