The Wise vs The Fool – Books of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes

America was, once upon a time, a Christian nation.  We Christians have squandered away our nation due to the proverbial cancers of political correctness, multiculturalism and identity politics.

BookCoverPreview-1If there ever was a Scripture verse available to us, I believe in my heart that Romans chapter 1 is the key.  America, has soiled its own britches.  America, because America has turned its back on Jesus Christ, deserves the federal government of which we fervently deserve.

With that stated, in America, our SCOTUS department of the foolish and ignorant…and Evil…have closed the door on 2 Chronicles 7:14.  This nation, on a whole, is finished.  America is now what most call a Third World Nation.  There are no laws for America, because we have tossed aside, like we have tossed aside God Almighty, our Law of the Land which is our federal Constitution.

Our elected “defficials” (officials), including the unelectable SCOTUS, now writebabylon at its end our laws, which no one can follow; because there are so many.  Our “President” now can write their own laws because our deflated Congress has nothing to back them up to renounce or condemn unconstitutional law; because we have no Constitution.  Our deflated Congress is now ill-equipped to write the “laws” (the statutes as the Constitution so states) because their Oaths they cited to gain their positions mean nothing – they are merely an item of convenience for the Public of which they no longer represent.

It takes a long time to finally realize that their nation has been overturned.  When they finally realize the overturning of their federal government, they are powerless to stop it or to turn it back…without Jesus Christ at our helm.  This is what I have called the Microwave Mental Attitude or, the Microwave Mentality or, the Microwave Attention Span of Americans thanks, in part, to the List of 45.  If whatever you want to discuss takes longer than 13 nanoseconds, it is a waste of our time…so it doesn’t take place.

The reprobate mind – as a friend once stated – can be seen developing over the “last 100 years of this country“.  As so stated in God’s Holy Word in Romans 1:28; “…And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; …”

reprobate mindWhat is a “reprobate mind”, as some ask from time to time because they haven’t the faintest idea of studying verse, anyway?  Glad you asked.  Look to the picture to the left.  Basically, the reprobate means unfit, unproved, and spurious.  They should never be in a position of power because they are useless, or so God says.  They are incapable of standing the test and they are not approved by God Himself.  They are to be our proper governing officials and they are not approved unto any task.

mindThe Scripture also states about the “mind” in the above text so what does “mind” mean?  Glad you asked.  Look to the picture to the left.  The mind is the intellectual facility or the understanding of the whatever it is to understand.

It is truly a wonderful thing when one actually does fulfill the requirements of 2 Timothy 2:15 where we are instructed to STUDY (not read) but STUDY the Scriptures, to see “if these things are true”.

Do our federal buffoons know what is true, and do they know what they are doing?  Without their acceptance of Jesus Christ as the Lord of their lives, my answers will be an emphatic, “NO!”.

America has become wicked, evil and purposefully ignorant in all its actions, no matter what they are now or in the future – if we have a future to look forward to.  We have purposefully “exchanged the truth for a lie” as so stated in God’s Word in Romans 1:25; “…Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen…”

Look and see what SCOTUS has done to this nation.  See if they violated Romans 1:26 and 27; “…For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet…”  Yes, they most certainly did violate the Scriptures…God’s Words.

As True Believers, we have been told “from such turn away”, reference 2 Timothy 3:5; “…Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away…”  From such, then, turn away.  Turn away.  Does this mean to be “nice to them in order to bring them around”?  No, it does not.  The texts tell us to TURN AWAY, and to “turn them over to Satan” and let them figure it out, reference 1 Corinthians 5:5; “…To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus…”  The “destruction of the flesh”?  Doesn’t sound PC, MC OR ID, does it?

As I stated in the beginning of this article, we used to be a Christian nation and our current resident at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in Washington DC has stated many times, “we are no longer a Christian nation”, and most everyone in this nation said, “Oh”. He also stated as he was talking to the “muslims”, “I am one of you.”…doesn’t sound Christian, does it?

Just so you’ll know, this is America’s Battle Hymn…

“The Battle Hymn Of The Republic”

Mine eyes have seen the glory
Of the coming of the Lord
He is trampling out the vintage
Where the grapes of wrath are stored
He has loosed the fateful lightening
Of His terrible swift sword
His truth is marching on

I have seen him in the watch-fires
Of a hundred circling camps
They have builded him an altar
In the evening dews and damps
I can read his righteous sentence
By the dim and flaring lamps
His day is marching on

I have read a fiery gospel
Writ in burnish’d rows of steel
As ye deal with my condemners
So with you my grace shall deal
Let the hero, born of woman
Crush the serpent with his heel
Since God is marching on

Glory, glory, hallelujah
Glory, glory, hallelujah
Glory, glory, hallelujah
Our God is marching on

He has sounded form the trumpet
That shall never call retreat
He is sifting out the hearts of men
Before His judgment-seat
Oh, be swift, my soul
To answer him be jubilant, my feet
Our God is marching on

Glory, glory, hallelujah
Glory, glory, hallelujah
Glory, glory, hallelujah
Our God is marching on

In the beauty of the lilies
Christ was born across the sea
With a glory in his bosom
That transfigures you and me
As he died to make men holy
Let us live to make men free
While God is marching on

Glory, glory, hallelujah
Glory, glory, hallelujah
Glory, glory, hallelujah
Our God is marching on

Simply amazing, isn’t it?  When will SCOTUS declare this song to be full of “hate speech”?

This article is pretty much trying to get Christians off of their duffs and to actually study the Scriptures.  This article is an attempt to get people to study the Books of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes where all aspects of life can be found.  Some have told me that I cannot call people a “fool” because that is name calling – the satanic ways and means of being “foolish”.

The Books of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes are rich in content and it is no wonder why the fools of this world will not study them.

Proverbs 1:1-7; “The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel; To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction…”

Ecclesiastes 2:12-17; “…And I turned myself to behold wisdom, and madness, and folly: for what can the man do that cometh after the king? even that which hath been already done. Then I saw that wisdom excelleth folly, as far as light excelleth darkness. The wise man’s eyes are in his head; but the fool walketh in darkness: and I myself perceived also that one event happeneth to them all. Then said I in my heart, As it happeneth to the fool, so it happeneth even to me; and why was I then more wise? Then I said in my heart, that this also is vanity. For there is no remembrance of the wise more than of the fool for ever; seeing that which now is in the days to come shall all be forgotten. And how dieth the wise man? as the fool. Therefore I hated life; because the work that is wrought under the sun is grievous unto me: for all is vanity and vexation of spirit…”

Both Books must be studied but before we can “study”, we must pray to God Almighty first because, as a “light switch can turn on the lights, prayer is God’s switch”.

“Be still and know that I am God: …” Psalm 46:10

America once was a Godly nation…we could be again

America can be a Godly nation once more…perhaps. Maybe it is too late. We need the full body armor of God upon our souls so we can fight the good fight until the bloody end.  Until this is accomplished, this nation known as America, is doomed to failure.

This passage of Scripture was placed in a song many years ago and people just thought it was a nice tune.  They completely lost the connection.

All Scriptures below are from Ecclesiastes 3:1-22

There is a time for all things in a normal life.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

There is a time to be born, if we don’t have abortion because abortion doesn’t give any time for life. There is a time where we must grow our own food and if we grow our own food, isn’t there a time to go get it?

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

There is a time when we must kill and soon after to heal. The term “kill” does not mean murder. There is a time where we must break down those things that are wrong and then build them back up to a righteous cause.

A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

There is a time where we must weep as we weep in joy or in sorrow. There is always a time to laugh like when your kids do something and you laugh causing them to express a “what?” sort of thing. There is a time to mourn for several reasons like when your Mother gets in such bad shape she can’t speak, think, communicate and later on die. There is a time where you must dance…if you have the ability.

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

All material things are vanity: temporary and transitory. We can achieve and get the “get” but what good is it when we remove God from our lives? Can we take it all with us? Many people embrace each other for various means and there are times where it is inappropriate. Can we ever embrace our enemies?

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

There is a time to get anything you desire and there is a time that we can lose it all, especially when we take our minds and souls away from God.

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

There is a time to rend as in separate from each other or part with violence. There is a time to sew as in uniting or fasten together. There is a time to keep quiet and a time to shout out…like in right now in America.

A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

There is always a time to love someone as in family and friends and then there is a time to hate but don’t tell the Leftinistra that because they do actually hate all there is to hate. There is a time for war especially when we are attacked and after war there is a time for peace…until the next time.

A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

And then there is a time for explanations…

What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?  I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.  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.  I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.  And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.  I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.  That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.  And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.  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.  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.  For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.  All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.  Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?  Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?

Ecclesiastes – the Book of The Preacher

My favorite Book of the Holy Scriptures is the Book of Ecclesiastes except for the verses that delve into the Saving Graces of Jesus Christ.  I say this because it incites, paraphrases, and the knowledge and the communication skills are second to none.

ECCLESIASTES: the book of Qoheleth

Ecclesiastes. The words of the Preacher. 

The entire Book is written with the style of writing known as proleptic or by way of anticipation. The conclusions are written first with the explanations thereof to follow.

The entire Book is written so anyone can understand that which is being said and The Book starts out with the conclusion that all is vanity. The Book ends with the conclusion that all are to fear God and everything in between is an expose on life and every day living, and dying.

There is a sub-heading or sub-conclusion throughout the Book, which states that there is nothing new under the sun. Some respond to that pseudo-conclusion that this Preacher must have been some kind of a fool because look what has been accomplished since these words were written. However, everything that has been “created” since these words were written, have been created by elements already on this planet.

Everything that is now made, and is now created, has already been created and made available to the “wondrous” humans that occupy this planet. Nothing has been “made” or “created” from a nothing so therefore, that “something” which creates “things”, has already been created by somebody and that somebody was God Himself.  Reference John 1:3 – “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made“.  It is very difficult to prove me wrong seeing that the things that prove me wrong will actually prove me correct. There is nothing new under the sun.  Or, we could turn to Hebrews 11:3 – “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

Our only way out…

Ecclesiastes 1:1-2; The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem. Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

Every thing that we do beneath the Heavens Above are vain. Our appearances are vain.  Our actions are vain.  Our tempers are vain. Our ignorance of life in general are vain. Our wealth is vain. Our poorness is vain. Everything we do without God sustaining our lives on a daily basis is vanity. When we exist without God in our lives, we are pretty much useless.

Ecclesiastes 12:8; Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher; all is vanity.

Excuse me, but your vanity is showing…and so is mine. At times in my life, I have lived as if God was of no part of my being. The Holy Spirit of which I suppressed, was always talking to me because at least I recognized who He was. In time, God came back to me yet, HE had never left me. I left Him. Is that how your life is going at this moment? I cannot save you because I am not God nor am I a god. I am merely human and only God can fix me and only God can fix you.

FEAR GOD

I am not saying that we have to cower under a God. Fear God in this respect is to worship and adore God. Period.

Ecclesiastes 12:9-12 — And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs. The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth. The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd. 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.

???????????????????????????????????????

My Dad used to tell me that some people are educated beyond their intelligence. I used to think my Dad was daft yet, now, today, my Dad’s words were those of Scripture.

We can write books; we can write these little quips as this one; we can try to be the wise of the wise where we all fall into the ditch. We can also become weary and weariness of the flesh is an ado I want nothing to do with. Do you? Are you smarter than your own intelligence?

What we must do, is to become knowledgeable of the Words of God because first there was The Word and that Word was the power of God because that Word was God and that Word is in fact God. That is all we need to know. Isn’t it? If we know the Words of God, what else do we need to know? (John 1:1)

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 — Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

So, are we being “good” or are we being “evil” as we try to learn all there is to learn? Do we ignore God and go after and learn all about the “world” of which Satan himself is in charge of?

God is in control. Period. End of discussion.
