King's Business - 1922-11



"THE WORD OF GOD IS QUICK AND POWERFUL.” thou hast hid these things frorh the wise and prudent and hast revealed them unto babes” (Mt. 11:25). The great things have always been given to the babes—those who have been great believers. _‘ ‘ Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies” (Ps. 8:2). The greatest movements have started with those having the child heart. “ The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant” (Ps. 25:14). Said Jesus: “ Said I not unto thee that if thou wouldest BELIEVE thou shouldest see the glory of God?” (Jn. 11:40). For those who would exalt human knowledge and “ the moral con­ sciousness” (whatever that is) above the Word of God, there is but one pronouncement in the Bible: “ Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes and prudent in their, own sight” (Isa. 5:21). Jesus made Himself known most clearly to people of humble walks. He was first seen by humble shepherds. The New Testament goes into great detail in giving us the conversations Jesus had with plain and humble people. His discourses with the learned theologians are lightly touched if at all. The greatest lessons that Jesus taught were given to those despised by the ecclesiastical leaders. When Jesus used ecclesiasts in teaching a great truth, He used them chiefly to differ from. It was a profligate Samar­ itan woman who heard His first clear confession of His Messiahship. To this woman He gave that matchless lesson of the water of eternal life recorded in John 4. It was the hated Samaritan again that was used to teach the great parable of true humanity, wherein priests and religious autocrats are seen passing by the helpless man. The things of Christ are for the child heart, not the boasting intellect. There are many smart, clever, talented and ingenious men,' but we are not dependent upon their abilities for the things of God. The Spirit of God A REAL BIBLE REVIVAL!
