ECCLESIASTES

OBSERVATION:

THE “PREACHER” RELATES TO THE HEBREW WORD ASSEMBLY OR CONGREGATION. NO DATES OR WRITER’S NAME IS MENTIONED. KING SOLOMON MAY HAVE AUTHORED THE BOOK.

INTERPRETATION: READ ECCLESIASTES 1: 1-4. FOCUS ON VERSE 4 (NASB) A GENERATION GOES AND A GENERATION COMES, BUT THE EARTH REMAINS FOREVER.

POINTS TO PONDER:

GOD DESIRED ETERNAL LIFE FOR ADAM AND EVE. THEIR REBELLION AGAINST HIS WORD CAUSED THEM TO BECOME DEATH DOOMED (MORTAL MAN). SIN ENTERED THE PICTURE!

THE AMAZING REALITY IS THAT EARTH CHANGES SOMEWHAT AND LIFE MOVES ON. PEOPLE ARE BORN AND EXPERIENCE DEATH AND THE CYCLE WILL CONTINUE IN FUTURE GENERATIONS. LIFE ISSUES CONTINUE TO BE WEARISOME AND AGGRAVATING. THE SPIRIT OF A TRUE BELIEVER, HOWEVER, CAN LIVE ON AS A NEW MAN IN HEAVEN WITH HIS LORD.

SOLOMON CLARIFIED HIS MEANING OF ECCLESIASTES 1:3 CITING

EXAMPLES FROM NATURE. ULTIMATELY, WORK PRODUCES LITTLE

SATISFACTION. IT IS SHORT LIVED AND TEMPORARY.

THE “PREACHER” LATER POINTED OUT THE WAY TO ESCAPE THE EARTH BOUND CYCLE. CHRIST SHOWED US THE WAY TO ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH HIS DEATH AND RESURRECTION. TRUE BELIEVERS WILL EXPERIENCE ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

APPLICATION: A TRUE SINCERE BELIEVER IS PURPOSE DRIVEN, PLEASING HIS SAVIOR AND MASTER!
