Ecclesiastes Chapter 1 Discussion

  • Tim legarie on Ecclesiastes 1
    When you seek Jesus he will give you peace beyond understanding through our Lords mercy and grace.
  • Custer9149 on Ecclesiastes 1
    Notice that in consecutive verses the key to the seriousness of the first chapter of Genesis is mentioned.
  • Carol Griffn Griffin on Ecclesiastes 1:9
    I am looking for the parables on salvation
  • Mishael on Words Stories by Jesus - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1:9
    If you have a red letter edition of the King James Bible,

    You'll find the parables in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The red letters are Jesus speaking or telling a "parable" (story) to demonstrate faith, salvation or instruction.

    You will see red letters in the Book of Acts, in some places. He spoke when Paul fell off his horse on the Road to Damascus.
  • Debra on Ecclesiastes 1
    Which comes first ,rapture or anti christ ?
  • Michael - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1
    1 John 4:3 "And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world."

    (According to this verse, the antichrist was already present in the 1st century when the Apostle John wrote the verse. Therefore, the antichrist is not someone who is going to appear on the world stage in the near future but that has been around since the time of the Apostle John - false teachers are the antichrist.)

    1 John 2:18 "Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time."

    1 John 2:22 "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son."

    2 John 1:7 "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist."

    1. Why is it that the majority of "sola scriptura" Christians observe Sunday as sabbath while the 4th of God's Ten Commandments specifically states that the "Sabbath is the 7th Day."

    (Recall that the close of the book of Revelation describes "the saved" as those who "keep the Commandments of God" and "have the faith of Jesus.")

    2. It seems that the most reasonable method of prophetic interpretation is the "historical" one. It is this method that leaves NO gaps in the flow of prophetic events.

    (The concocted methods of preterism and futurism leave the individual in limbo.)
  • Adam - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1
    Dear George,

    I don't believe most Christians think they are observing Sabbath on Sunday. I think very few minority would think Sunday is the Sabbath. A day of worship is not the same as the Sabbath day.

    Christians likely meet on Sunday, because:

    (1) The example is they met on first day of the week

    (2) Christians can worship any day, and many choose Sunday.

    Maybe your question is why do most Christians not celebrate the Sabbath on Saturday:

    (1) Colossians 2:16, 17

    (2) Jesus healed others on the Sabbath

    (3) Jesus challenged the Pharisees in how they observed the Sabbath and redefined it for them: Mark 3:4, Mark 2:27

    (4) Matthew 5:17-18 (fulfilled but not abolished). Many will say the 10 commandments still apply, like it's still just as wrong to kill someone, but a % may say the 4th commandment (keep Sabbath) may not still apply.

    That is to help answer your first question, but I didn't understand your second one.
  • Junebug on Ecclesiastes 1
    Davis did some bad things but DAVID had a repentant heart and he always reacted to his mistakes with sorrow for what he had done! God knew David's heart and that he was sincere! God knows all of our hearts! He knows if we truly repent! To repent means a change of heart! It means to put bad things out of your life!
  • Matheus Henrique da Silva on Ecclesiastes 1:18
    There is a poet in Brazil who said:

    "Love is life, is to have continuously

    The soul, the sense, the heart open

    To the great things, to the beautiful things (...)

    It's to have the heart in celebration, smile.

    And easily interperse celebration with weeping

    And It's to seek sadness, loneliness, the desert,

    And It's to be the happier and unfortunate from mankind

    At the sime time. (Gonalves dias: Se se morre de amor)

    Does wisdom bring sorrow and grief? Does it mean that the wise is sad? If it is true, can I say that wisdom is not good? In Proverbs it's written that we must seek wisdom... Is sadness a continuous condition of wise men?
  • William Gaeth on Ecclesiastes 1
    Why did Solomon sin so terribly later in his life?
  • Donna Williams - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1
    William: the only answer that comes to mind is that Solomon chose to disobey God's commandment, not to marry foreign wives. The women who he married turned his heart to serve their gods. This was a direct violation of the first commandment, found in Exodus chapter 20. Also found in the narrative of his reign in Kings and Chronicles.
  • Darren Croft - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1
    Both David and Salomon had serious personality conflicts, and lack of moral judgment. They were lucky God held them in high esteem, found pity on them, and spared them of their selfish, compounded sins.
  • Sacha - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1
    David and Solomon were both human beings ,they were at times weak and sinfull ,just like the rest of us human beings ,even the best of us is still just a human being .
  • Darren Croft - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1
    I don't care who David was, but he was a scum bag for putting Uriah out to a certain death, so he could have Uriah's wife. If I was Uriah's kin, I would have killed David.
  • Adam - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1
    Then one of David's family members might have killed you.

    Jesus said to turn the other cheek. If people did that, especially Christians, we wouldn't have endless tit for tat gang violence. Thousands per year murdered and the cycle never ends. Everyone is justified and gets 'revenge' in their own mind. But it's an endless cycle. Anytime you kill or hurt others, you put a target on yourself. Someone somewhere will want to harm you or your family. What David did was absolutely evil, but no, I would not continue the cycle of violence, because that would be sinful and evil. Self defense is different.
  • Sacha - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1
    You are so right ,if the whole world was ppopulated by Christians ,true Christians ,there would never be any violence because true Christians are pacifist ,we need to remember that in the old testament they lived by a slightly different set of rules ,an eye for an eye etc.David did quite a lot of naughty things and although God always forgave him He did punish David for his sins ,i often wonder about Saul and David maybe being forshadowers of the 2 sets of rules ,Saul died because he broke the law and wasnt forgiven because there was no forgiveness in the law ,David broke the law and broke oaths but he was forgiven ,punished but forgiven ,i think that God does punish us sometimes ,even though he forgives us he still corrects us like any Good Father should .
  • Darren Croft - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1
    There will not be a need for police or prisons, or anything this distasteful world has to offer.
  • Donna Williams - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1
    Thank God for His grace and mercy, that He has not rewarded us according to what our sins deserved!
  • Minister Don Shepard on Ecclesiastes 1:9
    did GOD Call women to preach in the bible ?..yes or no ?
  • Chrissie B - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1:9
    Why wouldn't God call women to preach? God shows no partiality (Romans 2:11) and can use anybody to do His will (1 Corinthians 1:27). Miriam, Deborah, Huldah, Isaiah's wife, and Anna were given the authority to speak to the people on the behalf of God and thus preached the Word of God. Go back and read Romans 16:1-15 about the 10 women who where in ministry who held leadership positions.
  • Dianne on Ecclesiastes 1
    Chris there are things you assume I think that I do not therefore best thing for me to do is say God bless and move on to a different topic. Just remember I never state my thoughts or opinion or this is it, but Gods word should fit perfectly in all categories, and it does as originally given with the apostle paul everywhere he Preached Christ and deliverance available individuals came right behind and talked people out of it, which is why we have the church epistles and the same arguments today what did Paul really mean hense denominations which will not be made perfect until the church is taken up.
  • Chris - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1
    I understand what you're saying, Dianne. We can indeed just put forward the Scriptures to each other, as answers to their questions, & leave it that. That's of course a very good start as it's only from God's Word that we read & learn. Yet properly understanding what is given by way of Bible study, preaching, etc. is necessary to help us learn more about the writer, the background, from the original texts, Scriptural comparisons, etc. Some may find this unnecessary, but I value it so that I can better understand the context that Scripture has been written in. Or else, our pastors would have a very short 3 minute message to give, if they only gave the title of their message & asked us to write down relevant Scriptures to take home & allow only the Bible to speak to us & not him. Maybe our Churches should consider adopting that style. Would it be useful though?
  • Dianne - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1
    I've been or sat in teachings where the guestion was asked what do you think it means and have seen a dozen different answers why doesn't any body ask what did God mean Him being the author.
  • Ruben Estrada ovalle - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1
    ? Why do people Scholars persons individuals continue interpreting the gospel of God knowing they are misleading people
  • Comments by Alex about the trinity which is very simply even a 5 yr old can easily see it. When God told Moses that his name was Abraham Issac and Jacob and my memorial to ALL generations implies his kingdom is a trinity scenario a family aka as the family of God . And from this family came the nation of Israel the multiplication of Abrahams seed. The very fact that we have a Father and a Son begs the question of a Granson ( THE H.G. ) that comes out of Christ loins his seed etc. and an ISRAEL OF GOD the multiplIcation of CHRIST via his seed. When God swore by himself that Christ wd be multiplied as the STARS OF Heaven thats the Israel of God , the CHILDREN OF Promise . That will come outa of Christ precious seed the LIVING WORD . You ppl that gag at 3 are gonna be sick when ya see that Christ THE Absolute SON is gonna be multiplied as the Stars of heaven. Remember Jesus multiplies after the God kind not the human kind. when he said to whom the word came it made them Gods and that which is born of the spirit is spirit his offspring which is the H.G TH GRANSON th beginning of the ISRAEL OF GOD. Just as Jacob th granson was the beginning of the nation of Israel. Like i said a 5 yr old can see this father son and granson family type Kingdom. Humans are just the good ground where that good seed will be sown. k
  • Hyacinth Ukwuagu on Ecclesiastes 1
    If Esau usually took his game catches home for the family, then he deserves to have his own share of the family meal. But if he wasn't doing that, then, he would not deserve or expect to have a share of the family food.

    Unfortunately, the Bible is silent to all those unexplained background facts.
  • Hyacinth Ukwuagu on Ecclesiastes 1
    Esau did not make mistake. Instead, he though Jacob was making a big joke; to ask for birthright for mare food! He was truly hungry to a point of fainting, having been in the field for a long time. They were still living under one roof in their parent's house. Why would a mother give one child food and not keep for the one that was in the field?
  • Dwayne nickson on Ecclesiastes 1
