Ecclesiastes (Part #14) (Ecclesiastes 7:20-29)Jeromy John Visser, August 11, 2019
Part of the Ecclesiastes series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Ecclesiastes (Part #14) completes the seventh chapter with detailed analysis on king Solomon's teachings about sinful Israelites. What are the Biblical numbers concerning the genuinely righteous among Abraham's seed? Should those that battle within the spiritual realm rely upon human might for salvation? This sermon teaches faithful Christians to not be over-sensitive and fully covers the seven "discoveries" of unrepentant mankind on earth.

20For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not. 21Also take no heed unto all words that are spoken; lest thou hear thy servant curse thee: 22For oftentimes also thine own heart knoweth that thou thyself likewise hast cursed others. 23All this have I proved by wisdom: I said, I will be wise; but it was far from me. 24That which is far off, and exceeding deep, who can find it out? 25I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness: 26And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her. 27Behold, this have I found, saith the preacher, counting one by one, to find out the account: 28Which yet my soul seeketh, but I find not: one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those have I not found. 29Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions. (KJV)
