Faalm 1:4.
Nations as wall aa people coma to
crosaroada in their history, and tak
ing tha wrong road than mean* fu
ture disaster. Solomon had built up
great national prosperity, but at tha:
axpensa of haavy texts. Ha had for
gotten God, and was suceaedad by
a son who followed In bis footsteps.
Offered an opportunity to eaaa the
burden of the people (1 Kings 12:
14), Rehoboam In his folly mad# It
greater, and tha nation was divided.
The ten northern tribes, which were
henceforth to be known aa Israel,
followed Jeroboam, and the two
southern tribes under Rehoboam be
came the kindom of Judah.
Jeroboam started with God's fa
vor, and might have led hia people ,
light, but instead ha became the
king whose name stood for wicked
ness (see H Kings 15:18). The story
of that downfall is a sad picture of
unbelief and failure.
Through varied experience* and
under different kings, Israel had
gone down, down, dcrwn in Its his
tory of sin and departure from God.
I. Doomed by Sin (II Kings 17:
6-12, 22. 23).
The hour had struck when God’s
heavy hand of judgment had to fall
on them. Verse 6 relates their car
rying away into captivity to As
syria. and verses 7-9 tell us the
reason for that judgment.
Ingratitude for God's blessing
<v. 7) led to the worship of other
gods (v. 8). They knew God’s hatred
for the sin of idolatry, and his judg
ment upon those who walked in that
way. but they went right on.
• Note in verse 9 that these things
■were done "secretly.” “The same
tning is true today of many who
profess to be the people of God. The
line of demarcation between the
church and the world is not clearly
drawn. We do well to note carefully
the outcome of this course ox pro
cedure on Israel’s part (w. 6. 18). ,
The fact that Israel did these things
secretly did not hide them from th«
'eyes of Jehovah (Ps.. 138:1, z; Men.
4:13)*' (John W. Bradbury).
The statement in verse 23 Is •
■striking one. The prophetj had re
peatedly spoken of the Impending
destruction of the nation. Now the
.time had come that the Lord could
’no longer stand to look upon thelx
«ln, and in a sense put them "out of
his sight" That does not mean that
they had been forgotten or that God
was not watching over them in
mercy and love, but that he had to
Judge them for their sins, and for a
time bring them Into Judgment
leading to repentance.
There Is always a reassn for s
nation’s deterioration, and ^ith Is
rael there were many reasons. Out
standing among them Is the one foi
* which they were rebuked by Isaiah
In the verses of our lesson, namely,
n. Deceived by Drink (Is*. 28:
1-4). *
• The picture here it a graphic one.
The leaders of Israel (here called
Ephraim) lingered long over their
fcowls of wine, and in their drunken
stupor gloried in the fact that Sa
jnaria, their capital city, was so
situated at the head of a valley that
lit was not only beautiful but prac
tically safe from attack by the
me arunitaras spoite wun priae
of their nation and of Samaria its
"crown." The description was apt,
for it was beautifully situated on a
hill surrounded by a fertile terraced
i hillside. But their boasting was
vain, for after a bitter three years’
siege, -the city eventually fell to Sar
gon II of Assyria.
All this has a familiar sound. We
think of the nations that have gone
down to oblivion even while the peo
ple engaged in foolish levity, and in
ithe awful stupefying'and degrading
use of alcohol.
t Remember the fall of France In
-the recent World War when its
own leaders said that the defeat
could be largely attributed to the
tremendous increase in the use of
alcoholic liquor.
What about our own United
States? With an annual Liquor bill
of about eight billion dollars, sa
loons on almost every corner, liquor
flowing freely in hotels and restau
rants. bottles and cases of it being
brought tr^to. the home, booze the
common medium of not only social
but business relations, our insane
asylums so crowded with alcoholics
that the poor inmates have no real
care—but why go on? It is a picture
so appalling and so utterly distress
ing that every sensible person is
shocked by it.
Do we think that God can long
withhold his judgment upon a peo
ple blessed by all his many boun
ties. and yet using them for destruc
tion of body and soul? Can a people
continue to be strong which is de
termmed to undermine itself by the
use ol alcohol?
Meat Packing Industry
Hie start of commercial meat
packing in North America can be
traced to 1641 when a square-rigged
ship sailed from Boston harbor with
a cargo which a handful of New
England colonists hoped could be
sold to West Indies plantation own
ers. Capt John Pynchon, Spring
field, Mass., and a few farmer neigh
bors had consigned hogsheads of
beef and pork, packed In salt, to
England’s colonies. __„

“For in this we groan, earnest

with our house which is from
Heaven.” 2nd verse of Corinthian
5 chapter was the text of our
minister's inspiring message. “We
are ambassadores of Christ.” His
congregation was held cnthalled
by his remarkable thoughts of the
day. “Any right thinking person
should admire a man that is not
ashame to be what he is. A fol

to the house of God, he should
come with the purpose of receiv

Personally speaking, I’m quite i

will be changed because the OPY
is one local organization that has
a firm foundation which to stand

A well-paid Job for
you in the Army 1
If you recent high school grad
uates can measure up to the high
standards for enlistment, there’s
a mighty good job waiting for
you in the Regular Army.
In addition to a Private’s
starting pay of $75 a month, you
get food, clothing, housing, med
ical care, low-cost insurance and
income tax exemption, all of
which would cost a civilian more
than $1500 annually.
You also get an exceptionally
liberal retirement plain — half
pay for life after 30 years’ ser
vice, and on up to three-quarters
pay after 30 years’ service.
Adding it all up, you’ll be
better off financially than a
civilian making $3000 a year!
And you’ll have sound technical
training, travel, the satisfaction
of doing a worth-while Job and
the companionship of a fine
group of men besides! Oet the
full facts today at your nearest
U. S. Army Recruiting Station.
