More is shared in response to the complaint that life has no genuine substance, is pointless, and is vain.  Like Job and Solomon, even anointed prophets such as Jeremiah and Elijah have struggled against the brevity of life, its futility and injustice, and what seems its arbitrary course of events.  It is the truth that all human achievement now is subject to annihilation, corruption, decay, decline, reversal, and ruin.  Nevertheless, through Jesus Christ, many created beings and living creatures will become known as acceptable works of GOD, and will endure as eternal, everlasting, immortal, and incorruptible.

 

THE BATTLE AXE:  The Gift of Life Despised? (10/13/2014)—(4.)  Many Christian believers entered into a relationship to acknowledge GOD seeking relief from their anguish, loss, pain and suffering.  It was not because they understood all the preaching and teaching about GOD, or all the details of sacred law and Revelation.  They reached a point where they confessed having a deep need within their own lives for the assurances, cleansing, new life, possibilities and power proclaimed by GOD through Jesus Christ.  Like the account of Adam and Eve, the record of Lucifer and the angels of heaven who followed him are provided to show that failing to correctly value the gifts from GOD result in their being denied to you.  There are many precious blessings with GOD that none may ever earn for themselves by begging or pleading, by hard work and worry, by weeping and crying.  Included are covenant, faith, forgiveness, fellowship, healing, holiness, immortality, incorruption, divine law, love, prosperity, respect, the imparted Spirit (some say, breath of life, the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Truth), trust, wisdom, and wrath against sin.  See Micah 6:  8, Psalms 34:  7-8, Zechariah 8:  16-17, Matthew 7:  6-8 and 13-14, 1st Corinthians 2:  9-13 and 1st Peter 3:  10-12, KJV.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  The wise man’s eyes are in his head; but the fool walketh in darkness:  and I myself perceived also that one event happeneth to them all.  Then said I in my heart, As it happeneth to the fool, so it happeneth even to me; and why was I then more wise? Then I said in my heart, that this also is vanity.  For there is no remembrance of the wise more than of the fool for ever; seeing that which now is in the days to come shall all be forgotten. And how dieth the wise man? as the fool.  Therefore I hated life; because the work that is wrought under the sun is grievous unto me:  for all is vanity and vexation of spirit.  Yea, I hated all my labour which I had taken under the sun:  because I should leave it unto the man that shall be after me.  And who knoweth whether he shall be a wise man or a fool? yet shall he have rule over all my labour wherein I have laboured, and wherein I have shewed myself wise under the sun. This is also vanity.  Therefore I went about to cause my heart to despair of all the labour which I took under the sun.  For there is a man whose labour is in wisdom, and in knowledge, and in equity; yet to a man that hath not laboured therein shall he leave it for his portion. This also is vanity and a great evil.  For what hath man of all his labour, and of the vexation of his heart, wherein he hath laboured under the sun?  For all his days are sorrows, and his travail grief; yea, his heart taketh not rest in the night. This is also vanity.  There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.  For who can eat, or who else can hasten hereunto, more than I?  For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy:  but to the sinner he giveth travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that is good before God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit.  (Ecclesiastes 2:  14-26, KJV)

 

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  Ones experience of eternal life must begin as an acceptance of salvation through Christ within the present time frame, and is not merely to be thought of as a far off, future event.  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
