Ecclesiastes 6: 10-12

That which hath been is named already, and it is known that it is man: neither may he contend with him that is mightier than he. Seeing there be many things that increase vanity, what is man the better? For who knoweth what is good for man in this life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow? for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?

El que es, ya su nombre ha sido nombrado; y se sabe que es hombre, y que no podrá contender con Aquél que es más poderoso que él. Ciertamente las muchas palabras multiplican la vanidad. ¿Qué más tiene el hombre? Porque ¿quién sabe cuál es el bien del hombre en la vida, todos los días de la vida de su vanidad, los cuales él pasa como sombra? Porque ¿quién enseñará al hombre qué será después de él debajo del sol?

With all the latest news in the world, I have been depressed. I think on these words from Solomon who had everything he possibly could want, but his soul was in anguish. The answers to Solomon’s questions are actually very simple, but we make it so difficult….JESUS. Yes, Jesus is mightier than we. Yes, Jesus is the one who knows what is good for us in this short time we spend on Earth. Yes, Jesus can, and does tell us what is better for us. Yes, it is sad that the Supreme Court ruled in favor for marriage not adorned by God, but what about all the other garbage? How many Christians are watching the unhealthiness on the television sets? How many Christians are bypassing what the Holy Spirit is telling them? I want to just simply ask:

Will God Find Even 1 Who Is Righteous?

Ecclesiastes 12: 13-14

The Well-Fed Writer Book Order Page

Let the conclusion of all of these thoughts be heard:

Fear God and obey his commandments,

for this is what it means to be human.

For God will judge every deed,

along with every secret,

whether good or evil.

La conclusión, cuando todo se ha oído, es ésta:
teme a Dios y guarda sus mandamientos,

          porque esto concierne a toda persona.
 Porque Dios traerá toda obra a juicio,
          junto con todo lo oculto,
          sea bueno o sea malo.

Solomon was very wise, but he did have his issues like all of us. Much of Ecclesiastes can show depression and negative thoughts of life. It is here at the end of the book that Solomon comes back into very wise thoughts. We all have to stand, no kneel before God and face everything we have done throughout life. This can be a disturbing thought if really considered. God knows all and sees all. It doesn’t have to be disturbing though if we react with a desire to do right and to bow before Him and seek God’s forgiveness.

No matter what, who, why, how, or any of those, God sent His perfect Son for every one of us.

God, please help me to quit looking at others and to look in the mirror at me. Help me please to be right and clean in your eyes. Thank you Daddy God for holding me and growing me. Please keep showing me the path you want for me.

All Praise and Honor to God!

In Jesus’ Name

Amen

Ecclesiastes 11:5

As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.

Como no sabes cuál es el camino del viento, O cómo se forman los huesos en el vientre de la mujer encinta, Tampoco conoces la obra de Dios que hace todas las cosas.

There are those times when we think we completely understand God, and we have the world by the tail. It is usually at that moment when things start to come unraveled and fall apart. Why? Because we don’t have it all down pat! If we did, we wouldn’t be on this Earth. Who are we to question God? Who are we to argue with the way He wants things done? Do we know better? God forbid!

Father God, I ask your Holy forgiveness for the times I think my way is better. Please keep guiding and blessing me. Your way is the only way; the only way to glory and true freedom. Oh Father, thank you for your precious love of me.

Ecclesiastes 10:1-3

Dead flies make the perfumer’s ointment give off a stench;
so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.
  A wise man’s heart inclines him to the right,
but a fool’s heart to the left.
  Even when the fool walks on the road, he lacks sense,
and he says to everyone that he is a fool.

Las moscas muertas hacen que el ungüento del perfumista dé mal olor;
un poco de insensatez pesa más que la sabiduría y el honor.
 El corazón del sabio lo guía hacia la derecha,
y el corazón del necio, hacia la izquierda.
 Aun cuando el necio ande por el camino,
le falta entendimiento
y demuestra a todos que es un necio.

This shows that a person can walk a life of wisdom, but one slip and a foolish action can be held against them forever. We must bow to God and seek His wisdom; His guidance, because we are all just fools without Him. Our wisdom is, in all actuality, just foolishness. I don’t want my life to stink, so I will allow God to have it.

Ecclesiastes 9:17

The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools.

Las palabras del sabio oídas en quietud son mejores que los gritos del gobernante entre los necios.

Sometimes it is much smarter for us to just keep our mouths shut. Our tongues can cause more problems than what the problem may be if we just keep quiet. We don’t always need to argue the Word or debate. God will show the person who is wrong in His way.

Ecclesiastes 12:14

For God shall bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Porque Dios traerá toda obra a juicio, junto con todo lo oculto, sea bueno o sea malo.

We cannot hide anything from God. He sees and knows all. Everything we do, say, or even think will be before Him at the judgement. Do we consider this in our everyday life? We need to. Praise be to God!

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

La conclusión, cuando todo se ha oído, es ésta: teme a Dios y guarda sus mandamientos, porque esto concierne a toda persona. Porque Dios traerá toda obra a juicio, junto con todo lo oculto, sea bueno o sea malo.

As Solomon put it, it is very simple; if we fear God and listen and heed Him, He will guide us into everlasting life. All things will be judged and the bad will burn. IWe judge ourselves in many ways; we know what is right and wrong. Why is it we still do the wrong things at times? Please God, help us to be pure and clean in Your sight.

Sometimes it is best just to keep our mouths shut; I have had to learn this piece of wisdom. Many times, even when we know someone is incorrect, if we just keep shut they will figure it out on their own. If we tell them, they can get rebellious and won’t figure it out. If we let the Holy Spirit do His perfect work it will come out right and good!

Everything means everything. Nothing will be hidden; it will ALL come before God and be put into judgement. Do we consider this with all of our thoughts and deeds? I think sometimes we think that we can hide something. Oh, thank You for grace and mercy through Jesus Christ! It can be embarrassing thinking of some of my deeds that will be shown; How will I answer? Grace; grace and mercy will be the only answer as I bow with tears before our wonderful,loving Savior.
