The Iron Pen #88

"...graven with an iron pen and lead..." Job 19:24
Pastor David L. Brown, Ph.D.

God & Country

In a day of near instant personal communication with cellular phones, beepers and e-mail, it is difficult to picture a time when word of mouth and mail were virtually the only forms of personal communication. Rev. Jedidiah Morse was well known Gospel preacher and soul winner. His son, Samuel Finley Breese Morse was one of the foremost portrait painters in America. But, Samuel had a vision to change and speed up communication. He believed that it was possible to "transmit intelligence instantaneously by electricity." In 1832 he began working to accomplish his dream. He was ridiculed and maligned by many, but he persevered. Finally, early in the morning of May 24, 1844, a small group of dignitaries assembled at the Capitol building, in what was the U.S. Supreme Court, at the time. President Madison’s wife Dolly was there. They would send the telegraph message from there. Another group was assembled at the Pratt Street Train Station in Baltimore, Maryland to receive the message. At 8:00 a.m. Morse checked over his new invention to be sure it was working correctly. Then just a little before 8:45 a.m. Annie Ellsworth, the daughter of the U.S. Commissioner of Patents, entered the Supreme Court handing Morse a note, upon which was written the choice of the Scripture verse which she and her mother hand selected. A precisely 8:45 a.m. Samuel F. B. Morse began tapping out the message in Morse Code…"What hath God wrought!" from Numbers 23:23. Instantly, in Baltimore, Morse’s friend and colleague Alfred Vail recorded the words. Our United States Congress later described the telegraph Morse had invented as "a universal blessing to mankind." To be sure, Samuel F.B. Morse opened the door for the "communication revolution."

Are You Against Sin?

Evangelist Billy Sunday was! He said, "I'm against sin. I'll kick it as long as I've got a foot, and I'll fight it as long as I've got a fist. I'll butt it as long as I've got a head. I'll bite it as long as I've got a tooth. And when I'm old and fistless and footless and toothless, I'll gum it till I go home to Glory and it goes home to perdition!" "Ye that love the LORD, hate evil…" Psalms 97:10
