MEMORY SELECTION: "Heaven
and earth shall pass away: but my
words shall not pass away."
LESSON TEXT: Luke 21:29-36.
We are now studying the even!
which occurred during the last week
of Jesus life, commonly referred to
as Passion Week. -On the first day
of the week our Sunday Jesus
made His triumphal entry into Je
rusalem, riding on a donkey, to the
tumultuos applause of the tremen
dous crowds which lined the road
leading into the Holy City.
! That pvenine. he and his disciples
made their way back to the little
town of Bethany, where Jesus spent
the night with his beloved friends
The next morning early, He return
ed to Jerusalem and immediately
went to the Temple. Enraged at
what He saw that the House of
God had been turned into a den of
thieves, he took a scourge and ran
the money-changers from the Tern
He returned to Jerusalem the next
day, and it is this day and its hap
penings witn which we are concern
ed. While He was in the Temple,
with His discipples, Jesus' -attention
was called to the great stones of
which the building was constructed
and the disciples spoke in admira
tion of the beauty of the building
and its ornaments. They were prob
ably remembering the prediction of
Jesus that the Temple would be ut
terly destroyed, with not one stone
remaining upon, the other. Jesus,
instead of reassuring them on the
permanency of the building, repeat
ed His warning, and later, in anoth
er conversation, he told ' them more.
"As for these things which ye be
hold, the 4aya will come, in the
which there shall not be left, one
stone upon another, that shaUTnbt
be thrf'Nr y 'rii-
Utteu. Mwfiayedi the
fl shall these . -J
and also ' to Lfcd them into a spirit
of watchfulnesl and; in the course ef
Hia reply, He spoke of three things
which were to come.
These were: the persecution of
the Christians, the destruction of
Jerusalem, and His own second com
ing. J'esus declared, "Men will ar
rest you and persecute you, handing
you over to synagogue or. prison,
or bringing you before kings and
governors, fur My name's sake. This
will be your chance to witness for
me. So make up your minds riot to
Lliink oiit your defense beforehand.
1 will give you such eloquence and
wisdom that none of your opponents
will be able to resist or contradict
it. But you will be betrayed, even
by parents and brothers and kins
folk and friends, and there will be
some of you who will be killed and
you will be hated everywhere for my
name's sake. Yet, not a hair of
your head will perish. Hold on, 'and
you will win your souls." Luke 21:
Certainly, students history, both
sacred and secular, know with cer
tainty the truth of the above pre
diction. Not only did Jesus' own
disciples suffer the persecution, and
even death, foretold by Jesus, but
on down through the ages, many no
ble souls have suffered and even
died for their faith in Him.
The prophecy which Jesus made
of His own ' second coming has, of
course, not yet been- fulfilled. It is a
matter of great difference between
many Christians, who argue over de
tails as to when, where and how Ha
will come again. There are many
things about His return,' that we do
not know ,but there one thing is
sure, He will return, in His own ,
time, for He said: "And then shall
they see the Son of man coming In a
cloud with power and great glory." I
Jesus' purpose, in talking with
His disciples, was not to satisfy their I
eurioshy concerning the future, but
to gire them encouragement and
warning "with which to live in the
'uture. - He wanted them to know
hat their time was to be 'used in
witness for Hkn as to the power of
God to giro His children peace, even
a the midst at war and ruroore of

A Glowing Spirit
Keep aglow my spirit, Lord,
By thy great love divine;
That all I meet will surely know
My life's in tune with thine.
Keep aglow my 3pirit, Lord,
And let me not complain
Of little things that trouble me,
For surely, thou doest reign.
Keep aglow my spirit, Lord,
When sorrow comes to me.
May no dark shadows of this world
Obscure my view of thee.
Keep aglow my spirit, Lord,
That. I may know the way
Of love and Joy and inner peace
a changing world, Jesus is unchang
ing the same yesterday, today and Through this and every day
forever. And, even death cannot '
separate us from God.
Therefore, Christians are to keep
busy in His service, living so as to
be ready for whatever happens,
when it happens'. In this world of
atomic and hydrogen power, men
need the assurance that God is
eternal and that, despite their ap
pearances, things are not out of His
