Untraveled? This brings awesome meaning to Ecc 1:9-18:
What has happened before will happen again. What has been done before will be done again. There is nothing new in the whole world. “Look,” they say, “here is something new!” But no, it has all happened before, long before we were born. No one remembers what has happened in the past, and no one in days to come will remember what happens between now and then. I, the Philosopher, have been king over Israel in Jerusalem. I determined that I would examine and study all the things that are done in this world. God has laid a miserable fate upon us. I have seen everything done in this world, and I tell you, it is all useless. It is like chasing the wind. You can’t straighten out what is crooked; you can’t count things that aren’t there. I told myself, “I have become a great man, far wiser than anyone who ruled Jerusalem before me. I know what wisdom and knowledge really are.” I was determined to learn the difference between knowledge and foolishness, wisdom and madness. But I found out that I might as well be chasing the wind. The wiser you are, the more worries you have; the more you know, the more it hurts.
I MUST ask! Is there ANYTHING new under the sun?
ALL you are going through; are you the first?
Yes! It may be ‘rare’ or uncommon, but NOT nonexistent, Amen. What has happened WILL happen again.
For naysayers, even if… and that is stretching it an awfully looooooooooooonnnnnnngggg way! Even IF our Creator made Earth and ALL in it! Wisdom – done, Skills – done, knowledge – done! Where does it ALL come from?
Nature Scientists say! Have we been able to create nature? I am not asking if we can mimic it! Can we create? Yes, definitely not on the scale that a minute fragment of the Universe.
Even Science, talks of a ‘multiverse’, we are a speck of dust as Earth. Yes! Our Creator (Should I call It Chance, Probabily, a realization of possibilitiy… How shallow can I get? SOMETHING made ALL!) We are so quick to name ‘chance.’
Much earlier for Scientists, I had wagered a gamble that is sure to be a winner. Explore, discover, (little “C”) create…but attempt to know where you came from. There are so many scientific ‘possibilities’ none have won the prize thus far. Darwinism? Took a while though! One man, or a group of ‘thinkers’ tried to figure out our past.
Ok, can they determine with Science – our future? The incredibly amazing thing is that the future has ALL been seen already!
Again, best to place your bet where the money is!
Why do I bring this up?
Below there is a ‘share’ I read which makes sense, but does not give credit to ONE Who has been here multiple billions of times.
“Modern” Homo sapiens (that is, people who were roughly like we are now) first walked the Earth about 50,000 years ago. Since then, more than 108 billion members of our species have ever been born, according to estimates by Population Reference Bureau (PRB). Given the current global population of about 7.5 billion (based on our most recent estimate as of mid-2017), that means those of us currently alive represent about 7 percent of the total number of humans who have ever lived.
Fact is fact! We read and learn. Even IF we were not that many, A Force that Created us is; and MANY lessons that could be learned were learned. Man; was allowed to be as he pleased… what happened?
“So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the Earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the Earth.”
This brings plenty of guffaws! “Really? So, does God ‘speak’ to people?”
People are led! By Something; intuition, nature, luck, chance…we can fall it anything we like. At this time, there was but a few who were as they should have been. Here, I refer to what is plainly stated in The New Testament. “You and your household will be saved!” Example? Yes, what you do, if positive you attempt to steer your offspring that way.
So, yes! IF we truly believe AND allow The Spirit to shine through us; we illuminate the way!
The light of the world is in you! Amen.
It is awesome to be a spot with light in a dark room. SHINE! So that others may see The Way (you are going!) “Boy! I need light! This person has Something about them!”
Hmm! NOT about them! In them, through them, around them… BTW that “them” is you!
