What joy fills my soul when I read the promise given by our Lord in
the above verse. What delight courses through my veins to know that
my God offers deliverance to all that would come to Him in faith. What
We, who look forward to His soon appearing in the clouds of the sky,
are all Prisoners of Hope. In seeking for a title for this humble offering
that we wish to render the chosen of God, the power of the imagery in-
troduced by the prophet Zechariah in relation to the children of Israel
who at that time were dispersed came to the fore. It classically de-

intoxicating drink strengthens with its use. The only safe course is to shun
the theater, the circus, and every other questionable place of amusement.
That the theatre is a den of iniquity cannot be argued. Not only the movies, but the TV is a monster waiting to eat
