Mayor Little declined. • Another question pertaining to keeping horses inside the city limits was recently received by this column. The questioner asks about a horse being kept on a lot on Second Street and says, "I'm sure that motorists passing can get a good whiff any morning they wish to drive by." I could find no horse on any lol on Second Street ... even though I drove up and down inhaling mightily. Perhaps you could write again being more specific about where the animal is being kept.

By Israel, I mean the. descendants of Abraham who came through the line of Isaac and Jacob, the man whose name was changed to Israel. One of the greatest of these explicit prophecies, spoken to "all the house of Isfael wholly" is found in Ezekiel 11:16-21. Thus said the Lord God; Although I have cast them far off among the nations, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come. Therefore say. Thus sailh the Lord God; I will even gather you from the peoples, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel. And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence. And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit withift you; and I will tak: the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them a heart of flesh: That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God Not one item in this prophecy has yet been fulfilled. Israel has not yet been gathered out of the countries where they have been scattered. Some have returned to their ancient homeland, but it has not been given to them. They have bought or fought for every inch of land they now .hold there. The detestable things and abominations have not yet been purged from the land. They have not been given one heart; they are a sorely divided and fragmented people.' The fulfillment of this prophecy is not one of long and gradual human effort. It breathes of the miraculous in every statement. Its fulfillment will begin on the day that God speaks from heaven, assumes sovereignty over all nations and His government, the kingdom of God, becomes a reality in this world. This is seen in Ezekiel 20:23 where God says: "Surely with a mighty hand, and with » stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, will I rule over you." It is after this rule begins that all Israel will be denationalized and repatriated by God (verse 34). It is after this that He will deal with them personally and directly (verse 34). The world will yet see miraculous things happen to the people called Israel, but all prophecies concerning them await the coming ol the kingdom of God forttitir fulfillment Otis Q.Sellers.
