Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

July 15 - Evening

"And I saw something else under the sun:

In the place of judgment — wickedness was there,
    in the place of justice — wickedness was there.

I said to myself,
'God will bring into judgment
    both the righteous and the wicked,
for there will be a time for every activity,
    a time to judge every deed.'

I also said to myself,
' As for humans, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals. Surely the fate of human beings is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath; humans have no advantage over animals. Everything is meaningless. All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return. Who knows if the human spirit rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?'

So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work, because that is their lot. For who can bring them to see what will happen after them?"

- Ecclesiastes 3:16-22

Fairness, Judgment Day and Afterlife    

Injustice in the court system bothered Solomon. The lack of fairness in life bothered Solomon. One hundred percent fairness is one of the things lacking in our world. Thus, the saying, “Life is not fair.” Sometimes the innocent suffer and the guilty prosper.

Solomon concludes that there will be a day when things are set right:

“God will bring into judgment both the righteous and the wicked,
for there will be a time for every activity, a time to judge every deed.”
- Ecclesiastes 3:17

Solomon then moves on to state the fact that our lives here on earth end just like the life of an
animal. God’s greatest creation, mankind, will first endure the same fate as an animal, that is concerning this temporary life and the physical body.

But, the issue of the soul of man and eternal life? Now, that is an entirely different question.
That topic falls into that category of what cannot be known. We can test and examine the death and physical remains of an animal and a man from our human position. But, what happens next is something that has not been easily explored by science, though many have tried, but most often well outside the boundaries of “science.” But, as Solomon says, “Who knows?” Which means you may want to be ready for the unexpected and the unexplained at the point your body suffers the same fate of an animal since it is pretty clear in scientific research that mankind are not just animals. Consider the natural worldly differences between man and animals which are just as clear as their fleshly similarities. No one can physically see what happens after death, but something does.

“Who knows if the human spirit rises upward…For who can bring them to see what will happen after them?” Proverbs 3:21-22

But, Solomon is anticipating a day of judgment for each man (but, not animals). A day when life
is made fair. We can’t see it scientifically, but it does seem to be in the heart of all men.
(Animals, on the other hand, don’t seem too concerned about judgment after death.)

  Christian Quote from Church History
"99% of the time we can find God's will for our specific situation directly in scripture. But since we desire our own will so much, we deceive ourselves and say,
'God's will is so hard to know,'
'Scripture is so hard to understand.' "
Something to Ponder??

The Garden of Eden and the temple (or, tabernacle) seem to be similar. The Garden of Eden was entered from the east as was the temple and tabernacle. The Garden of Eden was filled with trees as were the walls of the Temple engraved with carved trees
(1 Kings 6:29-35). Cherubim were present in both guarding the Tree of Life and the presence of God. In Psalm 74:5 the author describes the Babylonian destruction of the Temple in 586 BC with
these words:

"They behaved like men wielding axes to cut through a thicket of trees."
(see Psalm 74:4-9)

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Paratheresis (Gr) – observe (Eng) – the Greek word parateresis means “attentive watching”.
In Luke 17:20 the kingdom of God does not come in a way that parateresis
(“careful observation” or “attentive watching”) can see it.


In 2013 an ancient winepress was found in the city of Jezreel which was one of the capital cities of Israel, the northern nation. Jezreel is the city where King Ahab wanted the vineyard of Naboth because it was close to the palace of Ahab in Jezreel.

"There was an incident involving a vineyard belonging to Naboth the Jezreelite. The vineyard
was in Jezreel, close to the palace of Ahab king of Samaria."
- 1 Kings 21:1

Queen Jezebel plotted the elimination of the vineyard owner Naboth in order to take possession of his vineyard for King Ahab in 1 Kings 21.

The ancient vineyard uncovered in Jezreel is one
of the largest discovered in Israel. (Images HERE, HERE and HERE. Details HERE.

I will live righteously knowing God will hold me accountable.
I will do my part to be fair in time, but also realize that God will balance the scales in the end.

  "The discerning heart seeks knowledge, but the mouth

Chart of Religious ignorance that replaces the Word of God. This ignorance is based on mystiism, emotionalism, legalism, disconnected Bible references, Religious traditions and sincerity in deception.

A chart from Galyn's book The Word: Apparatus for Salvation, Renewal & Maturity that identifies 6 things that replace the Truth of the Word of God in the believer's soul which prevents growth and leads to an unproductive spiritual life because of religious ignorance.
