NO NEW THING UNDER THE SUN

May 4, 2010

It use to be quiet a mystery to me, how in the scriptures, predictions of the future could be made so accurately. Not any more, what we have in our future has happened already, and is just simple history to those of that future age. It is not all that hard for me to record in detail something which has just taken place, and I witnessed in it’s entirety, then write it out as a future happening to a people who are not advanced in technology, or wisdom, a people of the distant past. When in fact, what I recorded is indeed to come about in their future. The happenings of the world is in a circuit, over and over again and again.

According to Ecclesiastes 1 –There is no new thing under the sun. Our lives have all been lived before, possibly several times over. I doubt that our mind could withstand the knowledge of the past, that being the reason that former lives are blocked from our memory. Since there is no ‘New thing under the sun,’ this indicates that we have lived before in past lives. This brings to mind a scripture which I think repudiate this.—

If we have not lived past lives, then, we are new to this world, which is it, are we, or are we not new? Which scripture should we take a stand on?
Heb 9:
[27] And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Ecclesiastes 1
9] 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.
[10] Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
[11] There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.

Clearly it states, that there is actually no new thing in our world, it has been done before. It also states that we have no remembrance of things past, nor things in the future, in this case, both the future and past are one and the same, a continuous circle without end. Yet, if it is not new, this would surely indicate that we had to have lived prior to our present life, and then again after we leave this one in death, we do it all over again. However, (Heb 9:27) does not back this at all. We live once and then die, then judgment, no more lives, none in the past, nor none in the future.

Ecclesiastes 1
[1] The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
[2] Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
[3] What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?
[4] One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.

A man labors, a man steals, a man lies, and a man murders, in order to gain all the riches of the world, he then has to continue stealing, lying, and murdering in order to increase these riches, and to protect them from those like him, who are trying to steal from him. After all this he must lay down cold and stiff in a casket, and leave it all behind, just so that all his heirs, can hate, fight, and even kill in order to obtain his great riches. It is total foolishness to bind one’s life to the god of gold and silver, the golden calf of the Israelites.

[5] The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.
[6] The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
[7] All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.

What a miraculous thing our planetary water system is. Not a drop is destroyed, and not a new drop is created. No new water, the same water is used over and over. From the rivers to the ocean, and then evaporation back into the air, clouds form, flit over land and deposit the water back into the rivers to again flow back to the oceans. What an unbelievable fantastic miracle creation is. It blows ones mind to try and comprehend it.

However. Due to the lust for riches, that delicate balance which supplies all the peoples of the world, all the animals of the world, and all the vegetation of the world with life giving water, is being upset in the name of lust for gold and silver, riches which do not follow one to the grave. Our basic water system, the oceans of the world are being contaminated by a rupture in the earth’s crust, caused by those in search for riches. Has this happened in our distant past, which is also our future? Has the lust for the riches of the world been practiced in this manner in the before, and after lives of humanity?

[8] All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
[9] 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.
[10] Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
[11] There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.

No new thing, has there been automobiles, jet fighters, jumbo passenger jets, luxury ocean liners, atomic bombs, and computers before? Has there been humans, has there been a me? So many questions, and so few answers. We have nothing more to go on, than the written scriptures, and our imaginations. That scripture Ecclesiastes 1 was recorded in the distant past, prior to all the modern technology we have developed in this day and age.

Does it, that recorded scripture, stating ‘no new thing under the sun’ apply to all of human history, or just up to that one point in time when it was initially written? I feel that when that was penned on whatever it was penned on, the one doing the writing, was just stating something which he considered a fact up to his time in history.

I feel that if all that we have now has been in the past, that we would have found more evidence, more relics, more confirmative evidence that there was indeed an advanced civilization, such as we now exist in. Therefore, I do not feel that, that scripture pertains to this modern day and age, it pertained to that age prior to, and up to that point when it was first authored, but not beyond that point in time.

[12] I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem.
[13] 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.
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Now, I agree with (verse 15) completely, that which is crooked, can not be made straight. That is the very reason I refuse to pray for lawyers, politicians, and preachers, what is crooked, stays that way, it is carved in stone, and no amount of prayer will change it. The political and religious systems of the world can not be changed, it is all part of God’s master plan, He is just letting Satan do all the dirty work, so it is a waste of time to pray for something that is unchangeable.

One can pray forever for the oak leaves on an oak tree to turn to pine needles, and you will get no results whatsoever. That is the same with lawyers, politicians and preachers, they are the oak tree, and we are the pine needles.

[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.
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXThis preacher which was Solomon states that he had great wisdom, and at one time, no doubt, he did have this wisdom. However, that wisdom was taken from him by his over zealous sexual overdrive for women. By the lose of wisdom, he also lost his soul. He fell for the pagan gods that all his wives and concubines brought to him from their tribes. Therefore in the end, he was no wiser than those of this day and age. With wisdom, he would not have fallen from grace. In the end he had no wisdom.

In much wisdom comes much grief, also in much wisdom comes much pleasure. In wisdom comes knowledge, and with knowledge, mountains can be moved. Preachers, lawyers and politicians, like the mountains of stone, can be changed. Without wisdom, knowledge is useless as a toothache, and that is the picture of our present age, a lot of knowledge, but no wisdom, therefore, we are suffering from the very useless and painful toothache.
