ALL is Vanity

vanity

“Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.”
–Ecclesiastes 1:2

Does the reader believe that the greatest happiness comes from his accomplishments and the things he accumulates in this world?

King Solomon–who was VERY wise–wrote the Book of Ecclesiastes to declare that all of the things men work for; all which men consider most important; all which men obsess over: they are all VANITY.

“And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore.  And Solomon’s wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country, and all the wisdom of Egypt. For he was wiser than all men; than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, and Chalcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol: and his fame was in all nations round about.”
–1KINGS 4:29-31

The meaning of “vanity” in God Word is one that suggests “less than trivial” or “meaning nothing.”

In Ecclesiastes, Solomon considers all of the things man might value highly and declares that they are all “vanity.”

In fact, Solomon could find NOTHING about this present life of any great value.

“I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.”
–Ecclesiastes 1:14

This world ULTIMATELY means NOTHING.

At the end of the day, this world is VANITY–and little else.  Which is one of the primary reasons Satan and his workers of iniquity work SO HARD to get man to focus on this world and the things of the world.

King Solomon was known throughout the world for both his great riches and wealth AND his great wisdom. He considers both of these.

First, wisdom.

“And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.”

Then, he considers riches (which many men will spend their whole lives chasing).

“He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.”
–Ecclesiastes 5:10

One thing Solomon notices: no matter how much some men have, it is NEVER enough.

“All the labour of man is for his mouth, and yet the appetite is not filled.”
–Ecclesiastes 6:7

While on the theme of “vanity,” Solomon adds a few assorted thoughts on the topic.

“Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity.”
–Ecclesiastes 11:10

“And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.”
–Ecclesiastes 12:12

ALL that is in the world is vanity. Only those things which TRULY stand the test of time (eternity) are worthwhile.

The man who places great faith and value upon the things of this world will be SORELY disappointed at the end of his days: this is one of the main messages in Ecclesiastes.

In the pages of Ecclesiastes, Solomon calls himself the “preacher.”

“Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity.”

DOES the reader live his life by “keeping his eyes on the prize“?

DOES the reader ever wonder why he is urged so frequently to “focus” or to “concentrate“–most usually on something of the world?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Wake Up! OR Wake Up?

wake up

One of the most popular suggestions these days seems to involve someone telling readers to “Wake up!”

Not only is the general public told to “Wake up!” BUT any number of events are supposedly “wake up calls,” which are so dramatically disturbing that the event itself should serve to alert any who learn of it.

IN FACT, “wake up call” MIGHT be a  more popular phrase (at the moment) than “Wake up!”

All of these urgent warnings to “Wake up!”  prompts a few questions.

“What should the public wake up to, exactly?”

“Is this a relatively new problem?”

“How come everyone is asleep?”

“Are there any bad consequences when someone is suddenly awakened?”

IF the reader is looking for answers to the whole phenomenon of the world urging mankind to “Wake up!,” the reader has a WHOLE WIDE RANGE of topics to look at.  Everything from the relationships between two countries TO the mechanisms of politics TO what people eat and drink: ALL (and many more) qualify as fertile subjects for shouting “Wake up!”

Which brings up a valid question: “Can one shout loud enough to wake up the (spiritually) dead?”

While on the topic of ‘waking up,’ one is reminded of a quote by a writer who spent his life laboring to wake up the masses in ways which were most agreeable to those in control.

“The goal of any dissident writer is to crack open the doors of perception enough to let a little light in – so that hopefully the seeds of a political reawakening will be planted.”
Dave McGowan

HOWEVER, the believer KNOWS that most men DESIRE to stay asleep.

Most men have no more than a passing interest in the truth.

Most men realize that if they believe the truth, then they will have to change the way they live–and most men DO NOT like to change.

“That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits”
–Isaiah 30:9-10

“The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so”
–Jeremiah 5:31

Those who suppose they control the world imagine that someone shouting “Wake up!” to a man who wishes to remain asleep will do NOTHING but make that man angry.

Those who are imagined to be controlled by the elite suppose that someone shouting “Wake up!”  is something more than an exercise in futility.

These days, those who DO “wake up!” to whatever they are being warned about by the world are labeled–sometimes derisively–“woke.”

The main point for the reader to remember: those who wish to remain asleep will not WILLINGLY wake up when someone shouts “Wake up!

Shouting “Wake up!” is like being in a rocking chair: it gives the person who is shouting something to do, but they don’t get very far.

And so, the MAIN question to all of the world which appears to be urging “Wake up!”:

“Should it be ‘Wake up!’ OR should it be ‘Wake up?’”

Repentance

repent!

It has lately been noticed HOW MANY mis-use the term “repent” or “repentance.”

This is particularly true of the church folk, who have been religiously misled on the matter.

One hears a great many declare that they want to (or have already done so) “repent of their sins.”  A great many pulpit poachers declare that they want the congregation to “repent of their sins.”

OR, the question will be REPEATEDLY asked, “Have you repented of your sins?

“You need to repent of your sins.  Right now!”

This CONFUSES “repentance” with “penance” (something the Catholic Church puts a great deal of stock in).

When asked to explain what they mean by “repentance,” the VAST MAJORITY of folks begin by mentioning some type of sorrow is involved.

“It means I’m sorry for my sins.”

This is NOT repentance.

Repentance” to the Christian COULD mean that there is remorse for past actions, BUT that is NOT the meaning of “repentance.”

REPENT means a “change of direction” or a “change of mind.”

Those who TRULY repent see God’s mercy (grace) in action.

The one doing the repenting NOW realizes the great weight of sinning against a holy God.

He then CHANGES DIRECTION in his behavior.  Instead of running to embrace sin, the one repenting fights against sinful urges.

He does not always win.

After all, he is encased in a body of dust.

But instead of looking forward to and planning to sin, he NOW fights the good fight and struggles against sin and sinful behavior.

Instead of seeing sin as “fun,” the one repenting sees sin for what it is: DEATH.

When the believer sins, there IS remorse.  After all, he FAILED in his struggle against sin.

However, the believer’s occasional failure drives home the absolute NEED for God’s mercy (grace).

BUT remorse is NOT repentance.  Remorse is sort of a by-product of repentance, NOT repentance itself.

“I’m sorry!”–for however brief or long a time period–is NOT a “payment” for sins (to make things right with God).

Some churches make GREAT public displays of PENANCE.

But these great public displays are as far away from REPENTANCE as the sinner’s original unholy actions were.

DOES the reader associate the words “I’m sorry!” with repentance?

FROM where did the reader learn this association?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

“It Works For Me!”

works for me!

While engaged in conversation with one of the youth this past week, it became apparent that youngsters of the times in which we now live have a different standard to follow for almost any arena of their life than those who are older.

Ah, youth!

It is a time of quick and easy answers to almost ANY obstacle which the young find in their way.

While discussing the finer points of computer networks and operating on the infrastructure that others control, the youth made the following comment.

“Hey, I set it up and I use it whenever I want to.”

When asked what would happen if he suddenly found himself without a network to use, the following was the response.

“I don’t really worry about any of that.  Hey, I set it up and I use it whenever I want to.  IT WORKS FOR ME!”

But what would happen IF that network you rely on suddenly disappeared OR quit working? Did he have any contingency plans or a backup system ready?

WHAT IF the system he depended on today would not–for whatever reason(s)–work tomorrow?

“I don’t really worry about any of that.  But if it did, I’ll worry about it when it happens.  I’ll figure something out. Until then, I’ve got it all set up and IT WORKS FOR ME!”

“It works for me!”

Ah, youth!

It is a not only a time of quick and easy answers to almost ANY obstacle which the young find in their way: it is a time for “figuring [problems] out” and having everything all work out in the end.

Ah, youth is a beautiful thing to behold.

No worries.

No problems one cannot “figure out.”

The confidence that tomorrow will be better than today.

Somehow.

Some way.

And youth stymied over ANYTHING is something one does not really like to ponder.

OF COURSE, in the end times, the youth are not alone in this attitude: it also is how MANY older folks handle their lives.

Why the Foolish Are in Trouble

ARGUE WITH A FOOL: What does the Bible say? What does the world say?

Many people today believe that someone who is “foolish” is silly or clownlike.

While that may be so, the Bible uses the word “foolish” in an ENTIRELY different manner.

In God’s Word, almost always is “foolish” used as another way of saying “wicked” or “evil.”

This makes sense because if a man was to trade an eternity of bliss for several years worth of what this world has to offer, an impartial judge would, no doubt, call that man’s trade “foolish.”

After all, God has graciously provided man with His Word, which is a how-to manual for escaping the clutches and snares of this wicked world.  For someone to make a choice NOT to believe this road map to future eternal happiness could be considered “foolish.

While there may be those who disagree that the foolish are wicked, God’s Word is crystal clear on the matter.

“The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.”
–Psalm 5:5

“Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.”
–Ecclesiastes 5:1

“To do evil is like sport to a fool, But a man of understanding has wisdom.”
–Proverbs 10:23

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

“Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”
–Matthew 25:1-13

The reader should take note that the bridegroom didn’t say to the foolish virgins, “You guys are so crazy! What am I gonna do with you fools?”

The bridegroom said, “Verily, I say unto you, I know you not.”

This is almost EXACTLY what the wicked in other parables of Jesus are told.

ALL this should impress on the reader that, during the end times, the foolish have much more serious problems than merely looking or sounding silly.

WHAT does the reader think about fools and foolishness?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

“Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.”
Jude 1:9-10

God’s Word is CLEAR that man is NOT to rail against the devil (Satan, the dragon).

rail:

to revile or scold in harsh, insolent, or abusive language

What is NOT so clear is to the reason(s) why those who follow God’s commandments are NOT to verbally revile Satan.

After all, Satan is man’s greatest enemy.

There is much speculation among those who speculate professionally about the Bible as to why this is.

The Bible itself HINTS at the reasons behind this injunction: though Satan is man’s enemy, he is in a hierarchy that was instituted by God Himself to bring to realization God’s plans and purposes.

2PETER 2:10-11 also refers to this reason for showing Satan a little verbal respect (though NO obedience).

“But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government [authority]. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.  Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.”

Here is some additional reasoning which ties in with all that has been written.

FIRST–Satan is called the “prince” of this world.

“Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.”
–John 12:31

“Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.”
–John 14:30

“Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.”
–John 16:7-11

SECOND– ALL princes and rulers are in their places due to God’s will.

“By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.”
–Proverbs 8:16

Satan–who is called the “prince of this world“–MOST CERTAINLY would NOT be in his position if not for God.

THIRD–The follower of God is NOT to waste his time in ANY idle talk—and that includes verbal abuse of the devil.

“But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.”
–Matthew 12:36

“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.”
–Ephesians 4:29

“But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.”
–2TIMOTHY 2:16

“Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.”
–Ephesians 5:1-4

FOURTH–Railing against ANYONE–even Satan–goes against all that the Christian is to do in his life.

“Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.  But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”
–Matthew 5:43-48

There may be additional reasons for not railing against the devil.

OF COURSE, if the reader is like the vast majority of humanity, he will NOT be swayed by ANY Biblical reasons.

No doubt, there may be additional reasons for not railing against the devil.

AND, in the day when all is made clear, those additional reasons will be known.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

FEAR of the LORD

“By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.”
–Proverbs 16:6

Watchmen on the Walls

"Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;"

watchman-wall-pd "Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

--Ezekiel 33:1-6
