THE SOSOW SCHOOL! Lesson VI. Second Quarter, For May 12, 1907. j THE INTERNATIONAL SERIES. Text of the Lesson, Gen. xlv, 1-15; I, 15-21 Memory Verses, 4. 5 Golden Text, Eph. iv, 32 Commentary Pre pared by Rev. D. M. Stearns. jCpright, 1!07, by Amcri, an Pns Association. We have bfforo us the task of sum mnrizius and getting the heart of the last nine chapters of this wonderful book of beiriiiiiins, the topic of the portions assigned as the lesson heing "Joseph's Forgiveness of His Brethren," which will have an analogy in Jesus' forgiveness of Israel when they shall receive Him at His coming in glory and, turning to Him with the whole heart, shall say, "I.o, this our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save ns" ilsa. xxv, ih. The gospel which does not proclaim forgiveness of sins ns the tirst thing freely given is rot the gospel of God, but "another gospel" of uiuu's device (Gal. i, 0-1:2; Acts xiil, 3S. :)!: Luke xxiv, 4r.-4s. If Jesus has been truly revealed to ns, then we have heard Him say, "Come near." and life and conscious forgiveness are ours in Him (xlv, 4, 30, 11, with which compare Kph. II, 13; I, 0, 7i. To question the reality and sincerity of this forgiveness, as Joseph's brethren did (1, l"t, Is only to display the contemptible meanness of our sinful nature aud to accuse the Lord of forgiving as we do. No won der Joseph wept when after all his kindness to his brethren he found them so misjudging him. Our similar treat ment of our blessed-Lord is enough to make Him weep too. What an abundant revelation of the heart of Christ is to be found In His three weepings at the grave of Laz arus, over Jerusalem and In Geth semnne: We would do well to consid er in this lesson study the seven weep ings of Joseph (xlil, 24; xliil, 30; xlv, 2, 11, 10; xlvi, 2!); 1, 1, IT), five times over his brethren and Benjamin aud twice over his father. Last week's lesson left Joseph ruler over all the laud of Egypt nt the be ginning of the seven years of dearth and in full and absolute control of all the corn to be had. If life was to be prolonged. It could only be by applica tion to Joseph, aud the corn had to be paid for. In our case there Is no life but in Christ, yet it cannot be bought, but must be accepted, a Joseph's breth ren obtained theirs, freely (I John v, 12; Rom. vl, 23i. Tha testing of Jo seph's brethren in chapter xlil and the remembrance of their guilt suggest the true penitence of the nat4on In days to come (Zech. xil, 10), when they shall look upon Him whom they pierced. In chapter xliii Judah consenting to become surety for Benjamin and his plea In chapter xliv, 1S-34, are among the most eloquent parts of the whole Btory, and particularly so as we re member that our Lord came from Ju dah and is spoken of as the surety for Israel 'in Jer. xxx, 21, revised version, margin. The words "peace," "wel fare," "well," "good health," of sliil, 23, 27, 2)S, are all the same word and remind us of Mordecal In Est. x, 3, but especially of Him who Is our peace, our health, our salvation. In xlv, 1, Joseph made himself known to his brethren. Jesus must make Him self known to us, and this He longs to do by His spirit through His word. We should beware of reading the Scrip tures without seeing Jesus, for other wise it may bo time lost. It is beau tiful to see Joseph recognizing the hand of God in all the events of the past (xlv, 5, 7, 8, !'; 1, 2''i and sending the messages of love and good cheer to his father from the long lost son. Two of Joseph's words to his breth ren as he seut them to bring his father should become watchwords with be lievers "Kegnrd not your stuff, for the good of all the land of Egypt Is yours," and "See that ye fall not out by the way" (verses 20 and 24). God would Lave us as strangers here, regarding not this world's goods except in so far as we can use them for Him, but, rich toward God in Christ Jesus, have our affections set upon things above and avoid all strife as we Journey on. In proportion as things unseen be come real all things seen and temporal become unreal. Jacob in his old age is careful to walk with God, and as he is about to pass out of the land of promise to go down to Egypt he seems to Lave some misgivings and to desire a message from God. lie is therefore granted a comforting and assuring mes sage from his faithful God (xlvi, 1-4) and so goes on his way to greet his long lost son. He could not believe that Joseph was still alive till he saw the wagons which Joseph bad sent for him. It 13 well when, there is visible evidence In our lives that Jesus lives end has sent us to bring people to Him (Eph. 11, 10; Tit Hi, 8) . Do not fail to note the meeting of Jacob and Tharaoh and Jacob's testi mony (xlvii, 9k also Jacob's blessing upon the two sons of Joseph (xlvill, 13-20) and the wondrous fullness of the blessings upon Joseph himself (xllx. 22-20). Compare the last words of Ja cob and Joseph in xlviii, 21, and 1, 24, and note the assurance of deliverance from Egypt as foretold to Abraham in chapter xv. 12-10. See Joseph's twice tepeuted "God will surely visit you" (1, 24, 25) and think of the testimony of that coffin In Egypt to many a dis couraged soul ":ho8e long years of op pression ere Moses led them out. We look not to a tead person, but to a risen, living, returning Christ, who will . fulfill every promise of God to every believer. THE FARM TELEPHONE. Bring The Hurnl Dlxtricts In lot Touch Willi The 1 ullahltnnts of The T4 iiNKettlleuce on Th. Furm More Desirable. , Farmers are probably the most enthusiastic telephone users. To the resident of the rural sections, the telephone means even more th.iu it dues to have a splendidly organiz ed postal service, distance reducing, rapid transit ekctrc systems und they live almost twxt door to every other inhabitant in the city. Consequent ly even without the telephone they have not the sense of isolation, the feeling that they are cut off from all their fellow beings that the farmer experiences. Even with all these advantages over the farmer, the cUv dweller, almost without excep ta i n, has a telephone in his otlice or in hid home, lie linds it abso lutely iudispensible. It '3 a busiuess In many ins'a-.ices more busi ness travels by way of the telephone than over all the other highways of commerce. There has been and still is a Li'eat demand for the telephone in this count y aud all are bending th'"ir energies to supplying this de mand. The latest developed telephone field, however, is the rural or the agricultural sections of the country. Two reasons can be eet down for the backwardness of telephone develop ment tn these places. The tirst and most important is to be found in the fact that up to the last four oi five years farmers practically did not know what a telephone was The.; depended entirely for com munication on the slow going mails or their own teams. The secontl reason was the fact that even h"ud the farmers wanted telephone ser vice they could not have had it. The Bell Telephone Company absolutely refused, time r.nJ time again, to give any telephone service to small cities, much less so to a half dozeu or more farmers scattered over wide sections of the country. "There is no monty in it," said they. But then t ter men came into the tele phone bnsiness, the men who are now known as the "Independents." While, comparatively speaking, the telephone development on farms is not great, yet taking into consid eration the very short time the far mers have had telephones at all, this development is most wonderful of the achievements of the telephone. On the modern farm the telephone is a luxurious necessity. One could expatiate all day on the utility of farm telephone aud yet not have to (piarter. To the farmer the tele phone is almost human. It is more to him than any other of the great inventions of the ninetenth centu ry. A telephone on the farm is the best investment a farmer can make, to say nothing of its convenience, and where he can build his own line the expense is nothing compared with the benefits. 1. It saves time, 'horse ilesh'" and money, making many trips to the village unneces-ary. 2. It gives the farmer all the advantages of his village neighbor, by placing him in communication and easy access of all. 3. It calls the doctor night or if : 8i m mm filf 1-5 Ssff ,!
