Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

July 17 - Morning

"Whatever exists has already been named,
and what humanity is has been known;
no one can contend with someone who is stronger.

The more the words,
the less the meaning,
and how does that profit anyone?

For who knows what is good for a person in life,
during the few and meaningless days
they pass through like a shadow?
Who can tell them what will happen under the sun
after they are gone?"

- Ecclesiastes 6:10-12

Avoid Meaninglessness by Accepting God's Reality    

Arguing with God is futile.

  • The way the universe operates “has already been named.”
  • “What humanity is” was established by God.
  • No one is going to get anywhere living like these things are not true.
  • God is stronger and the things he has established are firm.

Wisdom is to accept this and begin to work with what you have been given.
But, if you want to continue to argue with Truth and fight the system of Reality with you worldly philosophies and human reason then know this:

“The more the words, the less the meaning, and how does that profit anyone?”
– Ecclesiastes 6:11

This verse from Ecclesiastes 6:11 means something like this:

The more you present your evil philosophies as substitutes for the truth, the less things are going to make sense. The more alternate realities you teach, the more confused you are going to be. Now, how is that going to help anybody?

The summary is this: We only know the parts we can see and understand. The rest we cannot perceive or comprehend. God knows what he is doing. God is eternal and we are but a shadow passing through.

Once again, to find any meaning or purpose in this vain life we will have to begin with faith in God.
To continue to struggle against God’s Truth is to continue further in your spiral into a worldview that only concludes that our existence is meaningless.

Our focus is not to grieve for the things we cannot understand or to call the world unfair.
The primary thing for us is to know God. He is wise, good and fair. Then, you can relax and
enjoy the goodness that has been given to man while you trust God concerning the things that are beyond your understanding.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"Knowing God without knowing our wretchedness leads to pride. Knowing our wretchedness without knowing God leads to despair. Knowing Christ
gives the balance."
- Blaise Pascal
Something to Ponder??

353 Emperor Constantine’s three sons:

1. Constantine II
2. Constans
3. Constantius

• They killed hundreds of their father’s offspring except Gallus who was sick and Julian who was a youth when Constantine died in 337.

• Constans slew Constantine II and then was killed by a barbarian in battle.

• Constantius became sole emperor in 353.

• Constantius began a violent suppression of heathen religion when he pillaged and destroyed temples, gave booty to the church and prohibited all sacrifices and worship of images in Rome, Alexander, and Athens.

• Obviously, many people became “Christian” (if only in lip service).

• Constantius was an Arian and punished those who held to Nicene orthodoxy.

Athanasius wrote at this time:

“Satan, because there is no truth in him, breaks in with axe and sword. But the Savior is gentle, and forces no one, to whom he comes, but knocks and speaks to the soul . . . If we open to him, he enters; but if we will not, he departs. For the truth is not preached by sword and dungeon, by might of an army, but by persuasion and exhortation. How can there be persuasion where fear of the emperor is uppermost? How exhortation, where the contradicter has to expect banishment and death?”

Confession to Action   Facts and Information

I will resist false philosophies that lead away from God's Truth and the Reality he created.

and live a life of Joy.

  "If a man pays back
evil for good, evil will never leave his house."
