Life is an Endless Circle: Reading/ Thoughts Ecclesiastes 1:1-18 and Ecclesiastes 2:1-26:
Good Monday morning it’s June 28, 2021, I pray all is well. It’s a new week meaning we all have a new journey ahead of us. Those of us living in the heat box right now it’s miserable but it’s temporary. Yesterday here in Eugene, OR was the 2nd hottest day I have ever experienced in my life, at one point my outside thermometer said the real feel was 117. The hottest day I had ever experienced was 16 years ago in Baghdad it was 125, and we were in all that gear. To this day I always say nothing is as hot as Iraq! Life is an endless circle but what gives me hope is I now know this life is all temporary. Our pains and struggles are just temporary and one day Yeshua (Jesus) will wipe the tears from our eyes and heal our broken hearts.

Ecclesiastes 1:1-18 (Life is an Endless Circle)
Ecclesiastes 1:4- One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth forever.
The word ecclesiaste comes from the Greek word ecclesia meaning assembly. It’s also used in the New Testament when referring to Christians gathering for fellowship and worshiping. God also tells us if he did not exist then our lives would have no purpose or meaning. This is important for someone like me to read this because long before my conversion in Christ, I knew our lives had more purpose and meaning.
We labor to profit, but our labor will have no meaning if there is no eternal reward. http://bib.ly/Mt16.26.KJV (Matthew 16:26), and we inherit death generation after generation because of the curse of sin. Christ our God gives us meaning to our labor providing us a fruitful life raising us up from death to life. The Bible says nothing new under the sun and regardless man’s quest for further knowledge will prove fruitless overtime.
Free will or the choice of one’s spirit means we can all choose vanity which are evil deeds. We can choose to live by God’s will and words daily spreading his love and great victories with who will listen. So we aren’t sinful by nature but rather been given the free will to choose our path; it can be good or evil. God is the only one who makes straight what has been made crooked but only through faith and belief in Christ our God! (http://bib.ly/Isa40.4.KJV)
“Nothing new under the sun Christ is our God, whose mysteries are far beyond our understanding; just have faith!” - Jared W. Campbell
Ecclesiastes 2:1-26 (No God Life is Pointless & Vanity of Pleasure and achievement)
Ecclesiastes 2:21- For there is a man whose labour is in wisdom, and in knowledge, and in equity; yet to a man that hath not laboured therein shall he leave it for his portion. This also is vanity and a great evil.
Our hearts are the staging area of our true self. It’s the center of good or vanity, affection or coldness, mercy or hardness. Last but not least it’s the staging area for wisdom or folly, reason or confusion. Free will the power of choice, yes God is a God of choice. What separates God from Lucifer (Satan) is this, God told Satan a long time ago. A faithful servant is one that serves by choice not by fear or oppression. Lucifer on the other hand wanted God to enslave us and keep us oppressed. When God casted out Lucifer and the others who rebelled the war began. When Adam and Eve betrayed God in the garden when they were deceived by Lucifer, that’s when sin entered the world. So God knows are true selves because he knows our hearts if our hearts our dark we are dark, if our hearts our pure we are pure. So in the beginning we had a choice and Adam and Eve chose to know the difference between good vs evil. See, I said a while back that God did not create an imperfect world. God’s world was perfect until Lucifer deceived Adam and Eve, Adam and Even in return used free will. A perfect creation gives one absolute flaw but is our ultimate stage of freedom; Free Will.
“Free will is God’s true act of love without there would be no love at all!” - Jared W. Campbell
Today’s closing message is that we all have a choice in life. We can choose to live a life of good or one that is in vanity. “In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy spirit. Father, I pray you give the strength to continue to choose a life in your honor spreading your great victories! Help me to choose the path of righteousness, not one that is evil and full of darkness. I also want to ask for your hand of strength to watch over all of my family and friends. Lord comfort those I know who are suffering this very moment. Lord, I continue to pray for the President and all of D.C. leadership during these hard times. Lastly, Father, I pray for all those who are starving. You know the famines and shortages are getting worse. Father I pray you comfort those who are starving at this very moment and I know you are coming soon. Please continue to use me as another messenger to your great name, I pray all of this in the name of the holy one Yeshua (Jesus) that he may have mercy on us all! Amen!
