The Mysteries Of Life

The Sermon: Ecclesiastes 8: 2,4-8,12 & 17 Obey the King’s command…. Do not be hasty to leave the King’s presence. Since the King’s Word is supreme, who can say to Him, “What are you doing?” Whoever follows His Word will come to no harm, for there is a proper time and procedure for every matter. Since no man knows the future, who can tell Him what is to come? No man has power to retain his spirit, no one has power over the day of his death…. Then I saw all that God has done. No one can comprehend what goes on under the sun. Despite all his efforts to search it out, man cannot discover its meaning…..

Stand in Awe of God

What a heavy burden God has laid on men! 14 I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind. 15 What is twisted cannot be straightened; what is lacking cannot be counted. 16 I thought to myself, “Look, I have grown and increased in wisdom more than anyone who has ruled over Jerusalem before me; I have experienced much of wisdom and knowledge.” 17 Then I applied myself to the understanding of wisdom, and also of madness and folly, but I learned that this, too, is a chasing after the wind. 18 For Read More …

Stand in Holy Awe of God

The Sermon: Ecclesiastes 5: 1-7 1 Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. Go near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools, who do not know that they do wrong. 2 Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God. God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few. 3 As a dream comes when there are many cares, so the speech of a fool when there are many words. 4 When you make a vow to God, do not delay in fulfilling it. He has no pleasure in fools; fulfill your vow. 5 It is better not to vow than to make a vow and not fulfill it. 6 Do not let your mouth lead you into sin. And do not protest to the [temple] messenger, “My vow was a Read More …
