We are going through Ecclesiastes 3, looking at the promise God made about the different seasons and decisions in life.
and what will be has been before—the old adage “history repeats itself” is true. Even God tells us that here.
and God will call the past to account—God keeps bringing the same lessons in our lives until we have grasped it. I’ve witnessed this in my own life at times and I have discovered that it is usually more painful each time it returns.
And I saw something else under the sun—there are things that are visible in this realm that we see, but in the realm of God that we cannot see. There are boundaries of life and these are bookended by birth and death.
In the place of judgment—wickedness was there—we find wickedness even in places where we should not, such as in courts, church and government offices
in the place of justice—wickedness was there—often evil seems to triumph over good, and we don’t understand why at times.
I said to myself,
“God will bring into judgment—God can change our situation; He will bring judgment to all both the righteous and the wicked—His judgment will extend to both the good and the bad for there will be a time for every activity—there is a time and a place for everything a time to judge every deed.—God will judge all of our deeds and activities one day.”
Where have you seen history repeat itself?
