“I sought in mine heart to give myself unto wine,http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:'The_Visit_of_the_Queen_of_Sheba_to_King_Solomon',_oil_on_canvas_painting_by_Edward_Poynter,_1890,_Art_Gallery_of_New_South_Wales.jpg

yet acquainting mine heart with wisdom;

and to lay hold on folly,

till I might see what was that good for the sons of men,

which they should do under the heaven

all the days of their life.

I made me great works;

I builded me houses;

I planted me vineyards:

I made me gardens and orchards,

and I planted trees in them of all kind of fruits:

I made me pools of water,

to water therewith the wood that bringeth forth trees:

I got me servants and maidens,

and had servants born in my house;

also I had great possessions of great and small cattle

above all that were in Jerusalem before me:

I gathered me also silver and gold,

and the peculiar treasure of kings and of the provinces:

I gat me men singers and women singers,

and the delights of the sons of men,

as musical instruments, and that of all sorts.

So I was great, and increased

more than all that were before me in Jerusalem:

also my wisdom remained with me.

And whatsoever mine eyes desired

I kept not from them,

I withheld not my heart from any joy;

for my heart rejoiced in all my labour:

and this was my portion of all my labour.

Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought,

and on the labour that I had laboured to do:

and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit,

and there was no profit under the sun.”

Ecclesiastes 2:3-11

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Adam_and_Eve_expelled_from_Paradise.pngPlanet Earth has been a giant experiment in sin.

.

Right from the very beginning, mankind decided to eat of “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil”. Genesis 2:17

.

And mankind has been eating from that tree ever since!

Numbers 11:20

.

God has graciously allowed mankind to live. He could have destroyed mankind right there in the garden. But He didn’t!

.

No, God had another plan in mind. Yes, God would make sure that the fallen human race would imbibe a full cup of all the various elements which Lucifer’s kingdom is made of!

.

And so, Mankind has lived under various types of governments. Mankind has tasted of the various philosophies. We have tasted of the various pleasures which this world of sin has to offer.

Ecclesiastes 1:13 

.

Just think of all the varied ways of sin which we have eaten of!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Texting_closeup.jpgWe’ve experimented with various substances, such as alcohol, and drugs. We’ve indulged in riches, and the countless luxuries which they afford! We’ve now had a good taste of high-tech devices, from radio to Internet and everything in between!

.

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Pierre-Auguste_Renoir,_La_loge_(The_Theater_Box).jpgWe’ve indulged in all types of music, all types of dramas, comedies, operas, dances, and all kinds of sports, and all kinds of foods.

.

The history of mankind has been filled with various selfish lifestyles.

“I must work the works of Him that sent Me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work”

John 9:4

.

But there comes a time when mankind’s probationary period on Planet Earth comes to an end.

.

But there are just two more giant social experiments left to explore.

.

And just what two experiments are the last two for mankind to seek and search out?

“Ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil!”

Genesis 3:5

.

Well, for one, we need to look no further than the Book of Genesis, when the serpent, Lucifer said to the woman…ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. Genesis 3:5

.

Yes, as one of the final experiments, women will get a chance to rule the planet. This was Eve’s foremost desire, when she ate that forbidden fruit.

.

And so, in these last days we shouldn’t be surprised to see this giant push to turn the planet into a matriarchy.

Leviticus 20:13

.

But also, we must look to Genesis for a glimpse of the planet’s last taste of sin: Sodomy!

.

That right! The final straw for Sodom was the sin of sexual perversion. And when tried attempted to force their perversion on Lot’s two guests, the command was give to “escape to the mountain for thy life!”

“…behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.”

Ecclesiastes 1:14

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Colorized_King_Solomon_in_Old_Age.png

Now, the Book of Ecclesiastes was a book about King Solomon’s commission from God “to seek and to search out all things done under the sun”

.

And Solomon’s life of searching brought him to the final conclusion: “I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.” Ecclesiastes 1:14

.

Solomon, now an old man, finally realized that everything which this world of selfishness has produced, brings no profit, but only unhappiness, sickness, remorse and ultimately, death! Not only did Solomon greatly destroy his own life, but all of humanity has likewise reaped suffering, sorrow, destruction and death from our long history of indulgence in sin!

Revelation 13:11 (Parenthetical comments by website Editor)

.

And thus will it be with Earth’s final two experiments in sin! Yes, both experiments will only result in sorrow and suffering and death!

.

Now, of course, at the present stage of these two social experiments, society is still trying their best to put a happy face on these things. Yes, the public is being deluded by Satan’s mouthpiece, the major media goliaths. And the coverup is now in full throttle mode, as the statistics of Sodomite suicides and sicknesses are being suppressed. And the voices attempting to warn the public about the great unhappiness and destruction resulting from these perverted lifestyles are being silenced and censored.

.

But it’s an absolute guarantee that both these experiments in sin will eventually be seen for what they actually are: miserable failures, leading to destruction and death!

GENESIS, CHAPTER 19:1-29, A PROPHECY OF EARTH’S FINALE’

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpg.

The entire Bible is a prophetic book…“…for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” Revelation 19:10 

.

And this story of the destruction of Sodom reveals an aspect of how this world will end…“But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” Luke 17:29, 30

.

The story of Lot and Sodom’s destruction is a visible metaphor of the spiritual reality in these last days!

.

Even the very same warning which came to Lot is repeated in these last days…

“Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world…My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding”  

Psalm 49:1, 3

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Global_warning%5E_-_geograph.org.uk_-_1719373.jpg

But while the final curtain is about to close on this world, there still is time for any and every man, woman, and child to get into the lifeboats, and not go down with this sinking titanic world of sin!

.

King Solomon, the richest man who ever lived, gave his final summation in that little Book of Ecclesiastes: “Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 2:11

.

Read and study and prayerfully take to heart, the words and warnings of the wisest of all mortals…“behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun.”

.

Let’s not allow ourselves to become bigger fools than we already have been!

.

.

And so, after living for years as the world’s biggest fool, Solomon finally returns to his sense, and ends that little book of Ecclesiastes with the final conclusion…

.

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Colorized_King_Solomon_in_Old_Age.png

.

Fear God, and keep His commandments:

.

for this is the whole duty of man.
.

“For God shall bring every work into judgment,

.

with every secret thing,

.

whether it be good,

.

or whether it be evil”

Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14

.

.

.

.

.

“And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom

concerning all things that are done under heaven:

this sore travail hath God given to the sons of man

to be exercised therewith.

I have seen all the works that are done under the sun;

and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.

That which is crooked cannot be made straight:

and that which is wanting (lacking) cannot be numbered (filled)”

Ecclesiastes 1:13-15

ORION GETS THE VICTORY

.

.

.

Now if you will stay up all night, you will see that the tables turn very dramatically for our three warriors.

.

This is because, as night progresses, and this constellation group moves to the west, God has designed this threesome to now be in the opposite circumstance. Now it is Orion and his Horse who are atop the Dragon. Now Orion is about to cut off the Dragon’s head with his two-edged sword, while the Horse is stomping on his tail. And of course, there needs to be no explanation, because this picture tells the whole story. Jesus wins in the end! God’s people are victorious at last! No wonder the Bible calls this story…“The Good News”!
