Her mother answered sleepily, ~Oh, another coup, I guess.~ ~Then that's all right," said her daughter, "it's all the same no matter who wins", and off she went happily to bed again. Dr. Foreman Coup is the modern name for what used to be called a palace revolution and also a revolt, a sudden military strike intended to put the reigning administration out of power (by imprisonment or death) and in- stall new men in their place. Our Bible assignment this week tells of a successful coup organized by a priest, a coup that really was worthwhile, dne that .lasted .at least a century longer than most coups do. she went to Washington, D.

STRIDER COLONIAL FUNERAL HOME Charles Town 725- WHY THEY DID IT Athaliah, the queen in resb deuce, was definitely a "bad egg". She began her public career by killing all her grandchildren. This was even worse than it sounds. Athaliah was not a He- brew, but a foreigner -- a daugh- ter of the unscrupulous and un- speakable Jezebel. The throne of ~.the kingdom of Judah belonged by popular will and the provi- dence of God to the family of David. By killing off her grand- children, Athaliah thought she would h a v e "established" her claim to the throne. And so she would, if she had really killed all the children. But there was one small baby she did not know about (she was not the kind of grandmother who keeps up with all her family). This baby, named Joash, or Jehoash, was hidden in a bedroom belonging to the high priest. There he stayed for seven vests, unknown to all but a trust- ed very few. The whole nation accepted Athaliah because they thought they had no choice. So her irresponsible tyranny went on for seven years, while the good priest Jehoiada (incidentally, he was of royal family connections also) bided his time. HOW THEY DID IT The big coup came off on a Sabbath. The high priest man- aged it down to the last detail. You can read those details for yourself in the Bible. Essentially the plan called for. tripling the number of soldiers on duty at what we would call ~church time", introducing the boy king to the army men, (and what a thrill it must have been to see a real live lawful king, even a child, after seven years of Athaliahl) and hailing the young heir to the throne as King ofJuda. Athaliah was a little late getting to the temple court, and saw that some- thing had happened. Then when she heard the shouting ~Long live the King!," she turned on the high priest. "Treason!" she screamed. But she was (no doubt) pointing her finger at the high priest and the boy king, whereas she should have been pointing at herself. Anyway, in a few minutes fl~e soldiers carried out their or- ders, and ~the wicked old witch was dead." THINKING ABOUT COUPS So the people were as happy over this coup as they had been unhappy over Athaliah's. All this gives us something to think a- bout, in our world where coups of one sort or another are being pulled all the Ume, -- Santa Do- mingo, Cuba, Jakarta, Korea, Congo, Moscow, to name a few in zecent months. The Bible gives us some hints of how to look at thee things. Some coups, rebel- lions, political shake-ups, are good, some are bad. Few are whooly bad, few wholly good, Athaliah's own coup was wicked- ly selfish. The coup that killed her wag unselfish since the high priest ran a good deal of risk and could get nothing personal by the event. Force, even violence is in itself not good nor bad. Whether it is a blessing or a curse depends on who usee the force, and how, and why. ~1 on ouM~nes ~Wr',~led IW ~ Dhddea Chrisfien Educate, N~i~o| C(.~r~ll d ~O Chub:he, d CkHa in ~e U. S, A, Released I1~ How wonderful to see God through the eyes af a child. The wonder of bright blue eggs in a nest of twigs, the path of the wind through tossing treetops, moonlight dancing on a lake. All these are to him the fingerprints of God. Too often we are caught up in a world of worry and concern. Worrying how to make ends meet, we forget to stop and see God in the world around us. Jesus said, "Whosoever shall not re- ceive the Kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein." Your church offers you moments of worship and inspiration, so that you may see all things bright and beautiful and find for yourself the Kingdom of God as He reveals it daily through the beauty of His earth. THE CHURCH FOR ALL * ALL FOR THE CHURCH: " "]'he Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of charac- ter and good citizenship It is a store- house of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every perso~ should attend servic~ regu- lar]y and support the Church. They are: (1) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) ~'or the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church reg~ larly and read your Bible daily. * Vopyrlght 1966 K~ter AdoertiMng Service, Inc., Strasburg, Va. ~ . / THESE FIRMS INVITE YOU TO A HOUSE OF WORSHIP EACH SOUTHERN STATES Charles Town Cooperative, Inc.
