LESSON FOR NOVEMBER 7
JOASH REPAIRS THE TEMPLE.
LESSON TEXT—11 King* 12:4-15.
(101.DKN TEXT—Ood lov.tli u ilircrful
giver.—11 Cor. #:7.
The time of this lesson was about
878 it. C.. and it follows within a few
years last Sunday's leRson. Inaugu-
rated as king and instructed by a
faithful priest, yet Joash discovered
great lethargy on the part of the
priestly class with regard to the bouse
of God. He set himself to arouse great
liberality and to repair the temple.
I. .Lethargy, v. 4, 8. (1) its cause.
We phould read in this connection 11
Dbron. 24. From the two accounti
and the previous history of the na-
tion we conclude that the condition
of the temple was due, (a) to the
weak and frequently vicious charac-
ters of the rulers of the nation; (b)
to the evil companions of both princes
and priests and <c) to the cupidity of
court and curate. (2) The result of
this lethargy regarding God s cause
was evidenced (a) upon the temple,
and (b) upon the lives of the people
of the kingdom. (3) The cure. Joash
instituted great reforms in Judah and
in these Jeboiada the priest (v. 2) had
no small part, in this particular les-
son the prince (v. 7) seems to lead
the priest. Unfortunately the godly
priest did not long survive the crown-
ing of Joash and hence when he came
under other influences he soon went
hack to the evil practices of bis prede-
cessors and hiB reign ended in an
eclipse of evil (II Chron. 24:15-26).
In this lesson we have, however, a
suggestion of what is needed to cure
religious lethargy, (a) A vision of
the real condition of affairs (v. 7;
also II Cbron. 24:7). Joash saw the
resultant ruin of the temple after
15 years of misrule; he also saw
the misconduct of the priests and
did not hesitate to call them to
account. 'Tis no easy task to un-
dertake a reformation and restoration
such as this; witness Moses, Luther,
WeBley and Cary. These priests had
aided him to gain his throne and
doubtless had bad a part in his boy-
hood training. Joash had inaugu-
rated certain reforms before he be-
gan this task which suggests (he sec
ond need of (b) persistence (see I
Chron. 24:5, 6). Such work also de-
mands (c) systematic effort and giv-
ing. Joaah placed himself among Is-
rael’s best kings by undertaking the
restoration of the temple and won a
place alongside, of Hesekiah and Jo-
slah. Modern churches are not, strict-
ly speaking, "a house of the Lord”
such as the Jewish temple, yet the
condition of many of our churches
would indicate great indifference to
the cause of the kingdom. Our bod-
ies are indeed a “temple” 1 Cor. 3:
16; 6:19) and both the body and
church buildings alike should be kept
in proper condition.
II. Liberality, vs. 9-15. The plan to
have the priests gather funds for the
repairs was Scriptural (Exod. 25:
2-8) God does not look upon the
measure but upon the motive of our
gifts (II Cor 8:12). The priests did
not "hasten the matter” so the king
took it into his own hands (v. 9)
In this remissness Jehoiada, as the
chief priest, is held accountable for
all (v. 7).
We have in this story a rich sug-
gestion as to God’s plan of Christian
giving. (1) The object. It was dis-
tinctly for the glory of God and not
to outbid others or to wastefully use
the money for selfish purposes. (2)
All were to participate voluntarily,
yyt of their abundance (11 Chron.
24:10), systematically and faithfully.
(3) The results were a house repaired
(n Chrcn. 24:12). beautiful (IT Chron.
24:13) with the worship restored (II
Chron. 24:14). Joash seems to have
laid great emphasis upon the “taber-
nacle of witness ’ (24:6) and we need
(o recall that each and every part
of that temple was a testimony to the
(ruth of God and lmd in it a spiritual
suggestion and prophecy. As a whole.
It suggestea that God dwelt in the
midst of his people. The sons of
Athuiiah (Joa6h’s grandmother) had
so conducted themselves as to cause
it to need repairing (II Chron. 24:7).
When we turn to II Chron. 24:8-14 and
read the record of the restoration of
the temple, we discover: (1) Each
had its part in the work. (2) Each
did a "perfect'' work, e. g., did bis
task faithfully, fully aifd to a finish.
(3) Each did an orderly work, "in his
state.” None sought to supplant or
defraud others in the work assigned.
<4) Each did a si rang work, it was
“strengthem-d" and not a trifling work
as roen-pleasers or for the moment.
Try more prayer and like Joaah.
give the people a chance and there
will be no lack.
Again, note that they dealt “faith
fully.” We need to exercise tuitliful
ness in our relations to God and in

much to the size of the gifts.
At the meeting of the Executive Board of the
Nowata County Fair Association, held on Saturday,
October 30th at the office of the Secretary, the fol-
lowing resolutions were unanimously passed:
To the People of Nowata County:
The Nowata County Fair Association desires to
extend its thanks to all who assisted in making the
First Nowata County Fair a success.
To the newspapers of the county, for their un-
stinted support to H. R. Strother and Cass Fanning
lor the use of their buildings, to the citizens who of-
fered liberal premiums, and t.o Mr. A. M. Flesher
and the young men associated with him for furnish-
ing band music, the Association feels especially grate-
The past Fair has been a county fair in every re-
spect. and we trust that all who feel satisfied with re-
sults obtained at this first fair- will put their should-
ers to the wheel and make the next and each suc-
cessive fair greater and belter.
The Executive Board.
THE BOILING OF THE POT
Republican politics in the State are warming up
considerably since the meeting of the state committee
where a good deal lining it]) was done.
The National Committeeship of course occupies
the foreground. For awhile there was only one can-
didate in the field, that being the present incumbent,
Jim Harris, hut since postive announcement of Harry
Sinclair, it would appear that history would repeat
itself, and that Jim Harris would again meet defeat
at the hands of a prominent oil man.
Those who are opposing Jim, are advanceiitg
many good and valid reasons. First that Jim was de-
feated for the position he now holds by receiving only
143 out of 559 votes, at the Guthrie convention that
notwithstanding the repudiation Jim was appointed
and when everybody from State Chairman to pre-
cinct committeeman resigned in the interest of har-
mony, Jim was the only one who failed to resign, the
others had been elected, and Jim had been appointed
after having been badly defeated.
Another reason urged is that Jim is so vindictive
politically that no matter how much support he would
receive from any one opposed to him in 1912, he would
harbor that grudge against them, it is further urged
that where local organizations did not do his bidding
lie tried to disrupt them and not succeeding in that
he ignored them.
A strong argument made against his election is
that he is controlled absolutely by former U. S. Judge
Raymond now living in Illinois. From reports receiv-
ed from the west side Sinclair is taking well.
The congressional nomination is everybody s
fight. Several counties have candidates, some of
them have two, and to predict who will be the winner
would lie very hazourdous, from the number of can-
didates in the in the field, it would at the present time
appear that the man receiving the strongest home
support would carry the nomination.
The different contests are all friendly so far, but
the large number of candidates for the republican
congressional nomination compared to last year, is
conclusive proof that republicans believe the chance
for election in the first district good.
