Michael Jackson Justice: He That Increaseth Knowledge Increaseth Sorrow

God: Reconnect to Him

The Conspiracy against God is about "The Word", and the profaning of His Holy Name within us. Adam fell in the garden, breaking the direct connection to God. Jesus, the "last Adam" was a quickening Spirit, the Word made Flesh, and the only one with whom we can re-establish our relationship with God. Michael's story is still unfolding. He is the one who is, is not. But Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Many are trying to rewrite HIStory. We were given a help to instruct us. Learn more "here".

He That Increaseth Knowledge Increaseth Sorrow

A Prayer for the Preacher

"And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

13 Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished.

14 For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor.

15 I considered all the living which walk under the sun, with the second child that shall stand up in his stead.

16 There is no end of all the people, even of all that have been before them: they also that come after shall not rejoice in him. Surely this also is vanity and vexation of spirit."

We have quoted this section of Ecclesiastes a number of times; especially verse 15, which talks about the “second child”. 

You have in front of you for a time, to take advantage of the opportunities in that  short time left that God has given you to really get to know this marvelous collection of books called the Bible.  The truth in it is so remarkable and so deep yet so simple and complete.  Even with the controversy over books that are or are not there – it doesn’t matter.  As is, it is complete because the Holy Spirit makes it so between you and God’s Word.

Think about it, if the book of the law is written in our DNA and they that conspire against God seek to change that in you, what doors will be opened to you with sincere prayer, a thirst for truth and justice and to love God like Jesus did?  The Holy Spirit teaches you all things and there is plenty of scripture to support this fact, Like John 14:26

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Many are in the world today, deceiving and seducing the people into believing that man broke it, and man can fix it.  Spirituality is not obtainable without a relationship with God; it just simply is not.  And a relationship with God is not possible without restoration through Christ Jesus.  There are no short cuts.

Teachers have been necessary through time to help understand this law, not because the Bible is so hard to interpret, but because our thinking has been corrupted by those who don’t want you to know it, for their own purposes.  So please do not feel bad if you have trouble grasping.  The struggle is part of the journey from where you are now, to who you were meant to be.  And know that God loves you or this book would not have been made available to you.

Ecclesiastes refers to “vexation” and “vanity” many times in its chapters.  It is a remarkable book in this law, and one that I believe would part the veil for many who may have trouble understanding the Bible.

In Ecclesiastes 4:16 it says “surely this is vanity and vexation of spirit”.  What does this mean?

van·i·ty noun \ˈva-nə-tē\:
"the quality of people who have too much pride in their own appearance, abilities, achievements, etc. : the quality of being vain

Full Definition of VANITY

1:  something that is vain, empty, or valueless
2:  the quality or fact of being vain
3:  inflated pride in oneself or one's appearance :  conceit

Vexing would seem the opposite of “vanity”:

vex·a·tion noun \vek-sā-shun\
: the state of being worried or annoyed : irritation or annoyance

: something that worries or annoys you

Full Definition of VEXATION

1:  the act of harassing or vexing :  troubling
2:  the quality or state of being vexed :  irritation
3:  a cause of trouble :  affliction

Included are the two words, so that you can see what is meant by “vanity and vexation of spirit”.

In this combination, at least in this book of the Bible, the word "vanity" is used first, then "vexation" when used in a pair.  Our own vanity vexes our spirits so again the struggle with "ourselves" is given recognition in this work.

Those who's art is in the manipulation of the perception and understanding of others have made your soul, your thinking, your mind their line of attack.  So when a very wise yet innocent, once esteemed and later persecuted modern prophet said that "sometimes I think the devil is man himself", he was trying to tell you something.  When he wrote "Armaggedon of the brain", he was trying to tell you something.

I have told the story of my prayer for that person many times and the evening before as I sit here and write this, something remarkable happened that I can neither explain nor prove.  It is something that may have to just happen to you as you read this, just as I read when I came upon it.
There are certain elements in the social realms on which I share links to this blog. And this element consists of many of those who previously praised the information on this blog until such a time that it no longer followed the script of their purposes. 

These plot and post stories to solicit a response and I had one in the making until something happened which I will tell you. 

I was researching for another topic I was working on when another web site's position on this topic I was researching began taking a direction that was not Biblical or, it had no scripture support for their conclusion. 
One of the Bible verses they quoted on a paragraph idea I did agree with was one we had shared here before and it was in Ecclesiastes 1:

"The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun."

I went back to Ecclesiastes and read that whole chapter, then I went to Ecclesiastes 4, mentioning the second child to stand up in his stead and read that whole chapter. 

Then I went back to Ecclesiastes 1 and read that whole chapter from first to last verse.  Then I said outloud before the tears came, "I know who the preacher is".

I prayed.  And now I know what Ecclesiastes was trying to tell us.  I also know what I prayed for and how it was answered four years ago.

After this session which I both endured and prayed, I checked on the stats one more time before going to sleep that night.  What I saw in my messages was both a reassurance, a comfort which I had been craving for a long time, and a warning about those who plot.  It was a direct message and there was no mistaking it.

I want you to know how real all this is.  The God of everything created, by Him and FOR Him is most definitely in control.  Those of you who are among those willing to fight FOR Him and not against Him should take great comfort in that.

Ecclesiastes - A Must Read

Ecclesiastes is an underestimated book and from what I've read about it outside the Bible, it is misinterpreted in all directions.

The basic background on this can be found in Wikipedia and other venues that collect from multiple sources.  A good start would be at the definition or etymology of the word "Ecclesiastes":

"c.1300, name given to one of the Old Testament books, traditionally ascribed to Solomon, from Greek ekklesiastes (see ecclesiastic), to render Hebrew qoheleth "one who addresses an assembly," from qahal "assembly." The title is technically the designation of the speaker, but that word throughout is usually rendered into English as "The Preacher" (which Klein calls "erroneous")."

Who is Klein?  One who addresses an assembly would include amongst others, a preacher, would it not?  They of Jewish historian slant want to steer away from this word but there is no other fitting explanation for this.  They want you to believe it was Solomon, but I don't believe it was unless it was during a time that the Spirit was still with Solomon, before his fall.

There is also the curious question, since Solomon is ascribed to other books of the Bible, why would this particular book seek to “anonymize” him?

This same sentiment was found on Wikipedia concerning the meaning of Ecclesiastes:

Ecclesiastes (/ɨˌkliːziˈæstiːz/; Greek: κκλησιαστής, Ekklesiastes, Hebrew: קֹהֶלֶת, Qoheleth, Koheleth) is a book of the Jewish Ketuvim (meaning Writings, one of the three sections making up the Hebrew bible) and of the Old Testament. The title is a Latin transliteration of the Greek translation of the Hebrew Koheleth, meaning "Gatherer", but traditionally translated as "Teacher" or "Preacher".[1] – Source, Wikipedia

In the Bible, “teacher” or “master” in Hebrew is “Rabbi”.  This is what they called Jesus, and this is what the Jews call their teachers, preachers and “masters” today.  The Ketuvim is the third section of the Hebrew Bible that includes Psalms, Proverbs, Jeremiah, Ecclesiastes, Esther and Daniel among a few others (Source).  How they congregate these books is not as important as what is written in them.  And the link at Britannica seems to seek to digress these writings into romantic notions of poetry, love tales and allegories which they are, but at its core is the Truth of prophecy and history.

In that first paragraph in Wikipedia, they tell us that Ecclesiastes is the Latin transliteration of the Greek translation of the Hebrew word Koheleth.

My first question on this is - Why such a traverse from the Hebrew word?  It's not hard to pronounce and other Hebrew words are used in the Bible with their explanations.

The Old Testament was written in Hebrew.  Why is this particular word translated to Greek and then to Latin?

The base of that Latin word is ecclesia:

ec·cle·si·a  (-klzh-, -z
"n. pl. ec·cle·si·ae (-zh-, -z-)
1. The political assembly of citizens of an ancient Greek state.
2. A church or congregation."

A church.  Okay then if we return to the word "Ecclesiastes", which means in the Hebrew "Gatherer" or Teacher/Preacher, then we must come to the conclusion that Solomon was NOT the author, written in the third person or not.  Could he have taken the dictation in the Spirit?  Possibly, but this is certainly not describing Solomon.

Let's look at the next paragraph in Wikipedia:

"Koheleth introduces himself as "son of David, king in Jerusalem", perhaps implying that he is Solomon, but the work is in fact anonymous and was most probably composed in the last part of the 3rd century BC.[2] - Source, Wikipedia

The last part of the third century B.C. would be a couple hundred years after the time Daniel but within the same century that book was reported to have been written.  I found some interesting information on that as well:

"The Book of Daniel (Hebrew דָּנִיֵּאל, Dānī’ēl, "God is my judge") is "the account of the activities and visions of Daniel, a noble Jew exiled at Babylon."[1] In Christian Bibles, it is grouped with the prophets, but in the Jewish Bible it is found in the third section, the Writings;[2] its exclusion from the Prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and the Twelve) was probably because it appeared after the canon for those books had closed, and the dominant view among scholars is that Daniel is not in any case a prophetic book but an apocalypse." - Source, Wikipedia

For an explanation on the difference between B.C. and B.C.E. or A.D. and C.E., click here.  It will clear up a lot of confusion.

Isn't it interesting that the book of Daniel is not included in the prophetic books in the Jewish Bible?  They claim a reason MAY be that it appeared after the other prophetic books were canonized and "anyway" Daniel is not so much a prophetic book as it is an "apocalypse". (Apocalypse = from the Greek "to disclose", Apo + Kaluptein = "to hide").

But Jesus himself referred to them as prophecies and Daniel as a prophet:

"When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)"

Also in Mark 13:14 he said the same.

So Jesus himself refers to these prophecies of great importance and of course the Jews who disregard the New Testament pairs Daniel with another set of books in the Tanakh.  This was also interesting:

"Daniel falls into two halves, chapters 1–6 containing six tales of Jewish heroism set in the Babylonian court, and chapters 7–12 containing four apocalyptic visions.[2] This is complicated somewhat by the fact that chapters 1 and 8–12 are in Hebrew and 2–7 in Aramaic.[8][9] The reasons behind this have never been satisfactorily explained." - Source, Wikipedia

This tells us that for some reason unknown, chapters two through seven are written in Aramaic instead of Hebrew.  Do you remember we discussed this "change" of written Hebrew happened AFTER the Babylonian exile (597-527 B.C.)?  (“A Witness Against Thee") we sourced the "evolution of the Hebrew Script". 

"the original "Hebrew script", emerged, which was widely used in the ancient kingdoms of Israel and Judah until they fell in the 8th and 6th centuries BCE, respectively . . . Following the Babylonian exile, Jews gradually stopped using the Hebrew script, and instead adopted the "square" Aramaic script (another offshoot of the same family of scripts). This script, used for writing Hebrew, later evolved into the Jewish, or "square" script, that is still used today." - Source, Wikipedia

We also know based on research presented here, thanks to the contribution of many others, that Daniel is one of the books that allegedly the Karaite Jews ripped out of the Aleppo Codex.  Those who claim they are Jews in the State of Israel are desperately seeking these pages even employing their Mossad to infiltrate the Karaite community which is now dispersed and no longer centered in Aleppo. 

This should be explanation enough as to why the chapters of Daniel were written in two different languages in the middle of the book.  This “theory” is further vetted by the fact that Israel, the state of, has also targeted Syria, beginning with Aleppo in modern times.  The pattern is the same as with Egypt and Libya in 2011, South Africa and Yemen in 2012 as well as other areas of Africa and the Middle East.  Israel has been so far successful in pointing to the Arabs as “terrorists” with “possible weapons of mass destruction”, blaming uprisings and bombings on Syria itself via its rebels.

We also discussed on that same blog topic, the fact that Jews and the other tribes of Israel were not the only Hebrew-literate population over there.  They are ALL Hebrews, descendents of Abraham and they ALL spoke Hebrew proper.  Doesn’t it make you wonder how in Jacob’s day, they could marry each other’s daughters but today all Arabs are made enemies of Israel, the “state of”?  Many of them still know Traditional Hebrew, and also true history.  Unfortunately Islam didn’t appear in Arab history until the 6th century A.D.   We didn’t have a CIA working with a “state” of Israel then, but we certainly had Babylonian Jews who knew how to manipulate a population.  Something to consider.

Ecclesiastes then, meaning “gatherer” in the Hebrew translated to “teacher” or “preacher” in the Latin and Greek would mean only one would fit all three of these titles.  And considering that this is an Old Testament book and part of the Tanakh, I can understand why the Jews would want to credit Solomon instead of the spirit of he would become Jesus Christ and the spirit of he who would return as “the son of man”.

Always though, test everything through scripture.  Ecclesiastes opens with this:

"The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem."

The “Preacher” is the son of “David”.  Preacher is capitalized.  Solomon was not a preacher.  Also if this was written as they claim, in the second or third century B.C. then according to history, Jerusalem which was in Judah, was already split from Israel.  Jerusalem was the capital of Judah, not Israel.  Today the capital of Israel is Tel Aviv.  Tel Aviv in Hebrew means: Tel = man made mound, Aviv or Abib (Ez.) = Spring.  Noah’s son Japheth founded the city.  The sons of Japheth include Magog, Tarshish, Tubal and Ashkenaz (Ashkenazi Jews).

Verse twelve also reiterates who this is.  Consider how this is worded:

"I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem."

The Preacher in both verses is “capitalized”.  On “As a Witness Against Thee” and “A Pure Language vs. A New..” we compared the verses in which “JESUS”, “JEHOVAH” and “LORD” are in “great letters” as William Tyndale so carefully and “prudently” focused the true name of God.  Above in verse 1, the narrator states that he is King IN Jerusalem, not OF Jerusalem.  In verse 12, he states he was king OVER Israel IN Jerusalem.

Remember what we learned of the true meaning of Jerusalem?

"...from Hebrew Yerushalayim, literally "foundation of peace," from base of yarah "he threw, cast" + shalom "peace."

Keep in mind the changed language (“New Language”) from “Jah” sound to the “Yah” sound from original Hebrew to the “square” Aramaic/Jewish language of today (as it is written).

Jerusalem was not in Israel even back in the last days of Solomon’s time other than the brief history in which Judah and Israel were united under one kingdom.  Solomon’s disobedience to God precipitated this and Solomon was the last to rule under a united Israel.  Saul and David preceded him and they have been the only ones.

But we’re not talking about real estate here.  This is “the gatherer” speaking.  The Preacher.  Not only is this “Jesus” this is he who will come to gather those written in the book:

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall beat off from the channel of the river unto the stream of Egypt, and ye shall be gathered one by one, O ye children of Israel."

"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young."

"And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven."

"And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;  52. And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.  53. Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death."

Who is called “preacher” or “teacher”?

"The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him."

"But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren."

"Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?"

"Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel."

While it is true that other prophets and apostles were considered teachers and preachers, but none of them were the “gatherer” and the king of Israel. 

We know what Jerusalem means:

"...from Hebrew Yerushalayim, literally "foundation of peace," from base of yarah "he threw, cast" + shalom "peace."

The word “Israel”, Scripturally sound, means:

"And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.  28. And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed."

Is·ra·el  [iz-ree-uhl, -rey-]  Show IPA
1. a republic in SW Asia, on the Mediterranean: formed as a Jewish state May 1948. 7984 sq. mi. (20,679 sq. km). Capital:  Jerusalem.

2.the people traditionally descended from Jacob; the hebrew or Jewish people.

3.a name given to Jacob after he had wrestled with the angel. Gen. 32:28.

"Old English, "the Jewish people," from Latin Israel, from Greek, from Hebrew yisra'el "he that striveth with God" (Gen. xxxii.28), symbolic proper name conferred on Jacob and extended to his descendants, from sara "he fought, contended" + El "God."

Outside of scripture, you can see the slant on “Hebrew = Jewish” and “Israel means Jewish”, which is why Scripture is consulted to test these descriptions.

The “Preacher” in Ecclesiastes 1:1 and 1:12 is described as “son of David, king in Jerusalem” and “king OF Israel IN Jerusalem”.  Translated from description backed by scripture, the “Gatherer” who is “son of David”, “king in Jerusalem [the foundation of peace] and “king of Israel [those who strive with God] IN Jerusalem [the foundation of peace]” can be no other than Christ.

The rest of chapter 1 is also further revealing.   This person can see time.  He also through a narrator (because this is told in the third person) can go back and forth between times but in chapter 1, he says something poignant and melancholy, almost as a bereaved warning to be careful what you ask for:

"And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven: this sore travail hath God given to the sons of man to be exercised therewith.

14. I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.  15. That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.

16. I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.

17. And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.  18. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow."

Verse 17 reminds me of the verse in Isaiah 53 about the end times servant:

"He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not."

Jesus called the return of Christ “the son of man”.  He also referred to himself as the son of man. Why?  Because Jesus was the only “begotten” son of God, begotten meaning born from a womb.   Jesus was also the only man aside from Adam that was perfect, at least before Adam’s fall.

Jesus was the only “Word made flesh” who was “in the beginning with God” and who “was God”.

We are told something about this phenomenon in the book of Romans:

"But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you."

Two verses concerning the second coming that seem contradictory then, should no longer be contradictory to you:

"So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation."

"Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen."

So which is it?  Will every eye see him or only those that look for him because they believe in him?

Are there two events as the Pre-Trib rapture doctrine teaches?  No.  But there is something that will happen that the kings were not told, that will make them “shut their mouths at him” in Isaiah 52.  Do you remember this?

"The Lord hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God."

What does this mean?  Does it mean this?

" Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?

And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed."

We know what the sanctuary is, we have discussed this in “Purging the Sanctuary” back in October of this year.  It is the “soul”, the “mind”.

Tell me then, what is a “host”?

Host (n)
"Middle English hoste host, guest, from Anglo-French, from Latin hospit-, hospes, probably from hostis
First Known Use: 14th century

1. a person who receives or entertains other people as guests.
"a dinner-party host"

2. BIOLOGY - an animal or plant on or in which a parasite or commensal organism lives.

If the Spirit of God lives in you, that makes you a HOST.  A VESSEL .

"That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;"

A spirit can be commensal or a parasite.  The Spirit of God is “commensal” to us.  Without it we are just rotting “inside a corpses shell”.  The spirit of the dragon is a parasite.  It will “possess” us unless we “change that number” on our dial.  Jesus Christ is the “Word made flesh” and lived among us.  He died so that we could be restored.  Therefore through Christ God “has your number, to beat your disease”.

I want to see the world through your eyes

We know from Isaiah 53:10-11 that the “faithful servant” in the end times will “make his soul and offering for sin”.  Does this contradict the passage of Hebrews 9:28 which tells us that Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many? 

No, because it is true that Jesus, the Christ was ONCE offered for our sins.  The end times servant is crucified for a different reason – so the “pleasure of the Lord can prosper in his hand” (Isaiah 53:10-11).  He has to be “taken out of the way” so that “evil is revealed” (2 Thessalonians 2:6-8)

Remembrance of Former Things

Verse eleven in Ecclesiastes 1:11 reveals that the “gatherer” talks about there being no remembrance of former things, and that there will be no remembrance of things that are to come with those that come after.  What is he talking about?  Past ages?

But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;"

There are also other verses that reference a call to remembrance of things apostles should remember from “former days”.  The “gatherer” mentions in Ecclesiastes 4 that he “returns”, and he sees all the oppressions that are done under the sun.  And further down in the chapter he “returns” again.

Ecclesiastes 2 We learn that this Preacher/Gatherer is not just Jesus before he is Jesus.  He is also the one that comes after, Michael.  And He is the Spirit who as in both of them.  He is also the Spirit of Him who was in others, but succumbed to vanity and greed and pride and gluttony.

Ecclesiastes is summary narration of the history of man through the eyes of the Spirit of he who raised Christ from the dead, and who appeared as the Spirit of others in the past, and of he who is to come.

I have re-read chapter through chapter four again.  I can’t tell you how emotional this is.  Every stumbling block of mankind is in this book and it is recounted through the eyes of He who resided in many a host.  I hear His lamentations, I see His suffering for mankind and I feel his anguish, pain, the incredible frustration, the temptation and yet His incredible love and hope for mankind.

In Chapter 2, he has been a wise man and a fool.  He has seen the waste of travail over what man builds that will only be turned over to the next at death.  There is no remembrance of the former days, of the wise or of the fool.  He has spent time hating life, and hating the works of his hands because of the emptiness of vanity when we own nothing.  Man cannot enjoy what God has given because he fears losing what he does not own.  Yes, that is vanity, and vanity vexes the spirit.

Chapter 3, There is a time and a season and a time for everything under heaven.  A beautiful balance of time and purposes; a reminder that the world was set in our hearts so that we cannot find out the work that God makes from beginning to end.

"9 What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?  10. I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.

11. He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.  12. I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.  13. And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God."

The place of judgment, the place of righteousness and iniquity was there.  Concerning the estate of the sons of men, we might learn that we are beasts.  This could very well have been the spirit of He that was in Enoch, that was also in the host Elijah, which was also in the host David, and Isaiah and Jesus and the son of man whom has already come, for those that were looking for him, and we knew him not until he was taken out of the way, so that evil is revealed.

"16 And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.  17. I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.

18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts."

That man once said “sometimes I think the devil is man himself”.

In Chapter 4, the gatherer, the Angel of the Lord, the Archangel Michael, the spirit of He who was in Jesus Christ, who had seen the travail of man through many eyes, who had seen wisdom and folly, who had seen righteousness and evil, tells us he returned.

He returned and saw the all the oppressions done under the son.  This chapter I have referred to many times and it also reveals “I the Preacher”, the “Messenger”, the Master”, the “gatherer.  This is also the angel in Daniel 10:20-21 who tells Daniel he is coming from the time Daniel saw in his visions and that Michael is only one who holds with him "in these things".  Gabriel and Daniel are one because they are Spirit.  The Angel of the Lord is ONE with God because of Spirit.  Jesus was made one with God as we will be one with Christ when we accept him.  Do you see?

He sees that the time they have no comforter.  He sees the power wielded by their oppressors and  they have no comforter.

He sees the envy of one man’s work by another.  He sees the one alone.  He tells us of the one who will prevail, two will withstand him and the three cord not quickly broken.

He tells us of the one who will come out of prison to rule, and of those born in his kingdom who will become poor.  He reveals the second child that shall stand up in his stead , and of those that will come after him that will not rejoice in him.

Ecclesiastes 5:6 warns us of making vows to God and not keeping them, and not to say to the Angel “it was a mistake” lest God destroy the work of your hands.

There are warning not to love silver or gold, not to heap things up unto yourself and not share in your abundance as God has given you to do so good works with those. 

Ecclesiastes 7 – Better is the end of a thing than the beginning – and the patient in spirit better than the proud in spirit.  Wisdom is humility before God, neediness of God and foolishness is decisions made based on vanity and a warning to escape the woman who’s hands are like bands and whose heart is snares and nets.  She has had many a song written about her.  She has had many names.  She is the harlot, she is the seductress. She is the liar.  She is the vice and the vanity of kings.

Truth of grief in wisdom is knowing by He who has “seen the worst. The nightmare of – the human condition, the human soul, of what I would never think common man would be capable of behaving in such a way."

A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief, one who was despised and rejected.  Who would declare his generation?

"14 There is a vanity which is done upon the earth; that there be just men, unto whom it happeneth according to the work of the wicked; again, there be wicked men, to whom it happeneth according to the work of the righteous: I said that this also is vanity.

15 Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun.

16 When I applied mine heart to know wisdom, and to see the business that is done upon the earth: (for also there is that neither day nor night seeth sleep with his eyes:)

17 Then I beheld all the work of God, that a man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun: because though a man labour to seek it out, yet he shall not find it; yea farther; though a wise man think to know it, yet shall he not be able to find it."

Who can behold all the work of God but the Spirit of him who raises up Christ?  Because he can admonish those who brought with them remembrance of former days, who’s souls were again given the Spirit of he who sees all the oppressions done under the sun.

How many victims must there be slaughtered in vain across the land?  And How many struggles must there be before we choose to live the prophet’s plan?” - Michael Jackson, HIStory

"10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

There is more to Ecclesiastes.  You know what it means, you know who wrote it or at least who is telling the story.  You know what the lesson is that is given.

All is vanity without reverence and love for God.  For all the gold in the world is not worth one pin dot of knowing the pain of another’s soul because that is pure, powerful and uncorrupted love.  Seeketh that and the Angel will answer.
