ETERNITY IN THE HEART OF MAN AND THE AWESOME MYSTERY OF GOD
NOTE; I can no longer promote my posts on Facebook because many groups will not allow anything from Before it’s News on their page and they will delete them if you post. A couple of writers on here have abused this so much that folks are sick of it. They have peppered Facebook with false and inaccurate stories and when they are blocked will come back under other names. SAD!
Because of this my posts will probably not rise very high in the news feed. If you would like to keep up check “my other stories” from time to time, or follow my posts on my prophecy page on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/groups/227721764097464/
Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.
I had a girl write me because she was frustrated that she could not understand the Bible after reading it a couple of times. I guess she thought it would be like a novel and she would be able to see the whole story after carefully reading it twice.
I told her that the Bible is not like a novel, it is much more than that. The Bible is more like a huge puzzle; the more you read it, the more the pieces fall into place. If man had written it we could understand all of it but man did not write it, God did.
This verse from Ecclesiastes shows us this truth. Let’s take a look at it a section at a time.
(1) “HE HAS MADE EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL IN ITS TIME”
This section tells us that everything occurs just like it is supposed to in its proper time. We do not see this. We wonder why God allows things to happen. We say “why God!” Joseph must have said this many times as he lay in the prison house. His father Jacob must have said this when he saw the bloody coat. We know that Job screamed this as he suffered day after day. The Disciples were perplexed when Jesus was crucified and lay in the tomb. We know what was going on because we see the outcome in the Bible but they had no idea when they were going through it. In the same way, we cannot see how everything is working according to God’s plan but you can trust that “everything is beautiful in its Time” We just haven’t put all the pieces of the puzzle together yet, but when we get there “the mystery of God will be finished” and we will see the beauty of God’s harmony.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
(2) “ETERNITY IN THEIR HEARTS”
Gesenius says that the word translated “eternity” means: “what is hidden, especially hidden time”.
What this means is that God has given you the capacity to see the parts of a puzzle. You can see that there is a plan although you cannot comprehend the whole of it. You can see a plan so big that it must be from God Himself.
(3) “NO ONE CAN FIND OUT THE WORK THAT GOD DOES FROM BEGINNING TO END”
You are standing on the shore of a great ocean that stretches over the horizon.
Romans 11: 33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
Ecclesiastes 8:17 then I saw all the work of God, that a man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun. For though a man labors to discover it, yet he will not find it; moreover, though a wise man attempts to know it, he will not be able to find it.
NOW, READ CAREFULLY THESE WORDS OF PAUL FROM 1 CORINTHIANS 2: 6-12
Yet when I am among mature believers, I do speak with words of wisdom, but not the kind of wisdom that belongs to this world or to the rulers of this world, who are soon forgotten. No, the wisdom we speak of is the mystery of God—his plan that was previously hidden, even though he made it for our ultimate glory before the world began. But the rulers of this world have not understood it; if they had, they would not have crucified our glorious Lord. That is what the Scriptures mean when they say,
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
and no mind has imagined
what God has prepared
for those who love him.”
But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets. No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.
