Ecclesiastes (Part #19) (Ecclesiastes 11:1-8)Jeromy John Visser, October 6, 2019
Part of the Ecclesiastes series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Ecclesiastes (Part #19) spends a fair amount of time detailing Solomon's statement "Cast your bread upon the waters for you will find it after many days." What does bread and water represent in the Authorized KJV Bible? Is Adamkind's portion of common sense a bit of God-breathed Holy Spirit? This continuation of CPM's audio series attempts to answer these questions by further explaining the preacher's advice to farmers and young Israelites.

1Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days. 2Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth. 3If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be. 4He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap. 5As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all. 6In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good. 7Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun: 8But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity. (KJV)
