Of The Lord 'Was Rare In Those Days
The Hebrew writer tells us that "God ... at various times
and inl various' ways spok-e inl time past to thle feathers by
thle prophtets" (Hebrews.1:1). Reading the Old Testamnent
we are amazed at the mariner which God speaks to His
people either in telling of an impendifig flood, the calling
of Abramn, Mount Sinai or through the prophets. Yet a time
remarkable as it itlay seem is found in the days Eli, High
Priest of Israel: "Nowv thle boy 'Samurel ministered to thle
LORD. before Eli. Alld thle wuord of thle LORD wans rare in
those darys; there was nro widespread revelationt" (1
Samuel 3:1). The sense of t-he text is the rarity of the wor~d
of God being revealed to man was "pretciours" (ASV; RV;
KJV). What would cause the word of God to be rai-e? Why
would the Lord withh~old H-is revelation from His people?
The conditions of the ~time may give a clue.
Fifteen Judges had ruled the nation of Israel for over
three hundred years but thel cycle of disobedience was a
recurring theme for the people. It seems they could not
hold fast to the word of God. When the story of Samuel's
birth and ~early ministry to the Lord is told the conditions
were at an all-time low.~ Eli as High Priest was ineffective
and the behavior of' his sons brought tremendous shame
and disgrace upon God (1 Samuel 2:12-17). The people
had failed to drive out the inhabitants of the land (Judges
1) and they "did e'VI il thte sight o~f thle Lord and servled
thle Baals" (Judges 2:11). The polluted' land had
adulterated the people of God.
It was God's choice to withhold His revelation to man \1
because they would do nothing with it if He hlad. Samuel
would bring the wor~d of the Lord back to the people but
until that: time H-eaven was silent. This would not be the
last time the word of the Lord would fall mute. "Behroldl,
thre danys ar~e corning," says the Lord God, 'thatr I wcill
send a famine on the land, not a faininre of bread, nor a
thirst for water, but ;of hearing th~e words of thre Lord.
Thtey shall wander fromr sea to sea, andfrom north to
east;. threy shall runr to and fro, seeking thre word of thte
Lord, bat shalinrotfintdit"(Amos 8:11-12):
The Hebrew writer continues in Hebrews 1:2 saying that
God has spoken to us by His Son. Our revelation comes
from Jesus Christ and everything we need1 to know has
been revealed (2 Peter 1:3). The mind of God has been
retained within the pages of the Bible (and the Bible alone)
which we canl read and understand the mysteries of God
(Ephesians 3:1-11). Has the word' of God becoine rare or
precious to us today?
It was rare in the days of Saniuel because God withheld
His word; today it is rare among people because we have
withheld His word from our hearts. Imagine how sad it will
be when we talk with Moses about the fully revealed word
of God and yet we do so little with it. How often do we
spend time reading and meditating on the word? I saw
recently the hymtt writer Fanny Crosby had memorized
much of the New Testament and a great portion of the Old
Testament and she was blind. Can you name the books sof
the Bible?' There was a day not long ago when the words of
God would echo in schools, courthouses, work places and
homes. Many could quote various passages of scripture.
Those days are gone and it may get even worse if we do
not do something.
The word of the Lor~d is rare today. We are busyi about
many things but not the word of God. Would it be hitting
that God take the word away from us and give it to a
people who truly love the Lord and will do something with
it? How 1rare is it to~ you?

LIG CHRIST COUNTY JOUR L
By John M. A~yers ,
The Gilchrist County Com-
mission has begun the federally
mandated upgradihg program of
improving communications for aill
emergency and non-emergency
communications. Bobby Crosby.
Gilchrist County administrator re-
ported to the Commission during
their M~onday. Feb.-20 meeting that
this project is required by the Fed-
eral gpv-ernment and that it will cost
'the county an estimated 54132,000
more thari currently available.
The initial project was first re-
Sported to be completed w'ithin t'o
ears for 5650,000. It has since
increased to 5732,000 thanks to a
contract with RCC consulting, a
Communications firm. RCC con-
Ssulting will receive 582.000 to as-
sist Gilchrist County in completing
the project within tw~o years.
The commission discussed issues
involving the cost of the project
and how~ the county coyld split the
. cdtst up into two years of budgets. A
motion w~as made by Commission-
er Kenrick Thomas and seconded
by Corrimissioner Randy Durden to
have financial staff check on reduc-
ing the interest cost to the county
and spreading the project over a
two-year period. The commission
approved of this action by~ a unani -
The county administrator re-
ported to the commission that the
county has three options in how
they can begin working on the
Gilchrist County .can research
the possibility of leasing or pur-
chasing a communications towecr
in Gilchrist County near CR 340.
The County can request permis-
sion~ to get some ballpark pric-
ing on 200-foot rowers. One of
the towers, if approved. could be
placed at tbe Southeast Fire Sta-
tion adjacent to SE 70th Avenue.
A tower being considered for the
western portion of the county
could be placed on property at
1-art Springs for improved cover-
age to the area. Crosby explained
to the commission that most of the
equipment needed for this project
upgrade is on state contract for
reduced pricng. The commission
di rected staff to communicate with
the people that currently have tow-
ers on their property' to improve
Gilchrist County communications
and bring additional information

One of the participating appraisders~

helping out for thie third year at the

Monica loves cameos. She enjoys
talking about them and sharing her

Delectable Collectables, located in
Monica, a UF ~graduate .originally
from upstate ~New York, first became
interested in cameos years ago and
bought her first cameo at' an antiques
show held at the Oaks Mall. She
developed an extensive private col-
lection and as she began to dispose
of cameos she no longer wanted,
she became first a part-time, then a
full-time dealer. Marleen Oberst of
Micanopy introchiced Monica to the
business side of antiques, employing
M~onica as a part-time sales person.
Monica gradually began working
half-time at her day job, and -spend-
ing the rest of her time building her
-antique jewelry business.
I visited with Monica at her shop,
which she opened in the Micanopy
Banking Company building in 1982.
Monica can't wait to go to the shop
every~ day to shaie her cameos, and
her other antique merchandise. He~r
shop contains many displays of an-
tique jewelry as well as other collect-
ibles such as British flow blue china,
tin glazed Majolica pottery, and
American art pottery -from Weller,
Roseville, and Rookwood. Most of
Monica's. collectibles date from the
late 1800s through the mid 1900s.
Monica features about 1500 cam-
cos in her shop displays, with over
800 of these pre-dating World War II.
Monica explained that these hand-
made art works are valued based on
their age, the quality of the cary-

The center of cameo production is
located in southern coastal Italy near
