Ecclesiastes (Part #02) (Ecclesiastes 1:4-15)Jeromy John Visser, January 6, 2019
Part of the Ecclesiastes series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Ecclesiastes (Part #02) continues to introduce Solomon's book by explaining the sacred Name of Yahweh does NOT appear within any manuscript but certain unique Hebrew terms do. Can mankind truly destroy God's original creation? Can we "vex our own souls" by tolerating what Yahweh has outlined in His Word as being abominable? This segment covers a good portion of the first chapter to answer these questions and more.

4One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever. 5The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose. 6The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. 7All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. 8All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. 9The 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. 10Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. 11There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after. 12I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem. 13And 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. 14I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit. 15That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered. (KJV)
