Ecclesiastes (Part #07) (Ecclesiastes 3:16-22)Jeromy John Visser, February 24, 2019
Part of the Ecclesiastes series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Ecclesiastes (Part #07) continues our examination of the Preacher's book by providing scriptural pedigrees for both king David and Solomon to explain why the flesh also is considered "vanity and vexation of spirit." Are Israelites greater than animals? Who are the "beast of the field?" Do all living creatures have souls? These answers are provided in this upbeat continuance of our long-running DSCI audio series concerning life under the Sun.

16And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there. 17I 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. 18I 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. 19For 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. 20All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. 21Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth? 22Wherefore 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? (KJV)
