Greetings Brethren,

As Almighty God is our witness and Judge we declare: The knowledge of God is Spiritual Healing. Thus physical healing becomes secondary. Wherever you go so is God. He is there before there was a time or place. For the record there is only one interpretation of the Bible. There is no middle ground with God. Those that lie on God and the Bible are Doomed. There is no other way to say it.

Peace and Love,

Carl Patton writing for the FreedomJournal May 17, 2001 in the year of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.




In the name of God Master, of the universe, Ruler of the earth.

The Book Ecclesiastes taken from Hebrew has meanings noted in the speaker of an assembly, teacher, and preacher. The writer is Solomon the man in the Bible noted as the wisest to ever live. However the Book is perplexing and often mis-understood.

Solomon confines his thoughts about God to His role as the Creator and not as the Redeemer. Thus some theologians suggest that this Book is a negative preparation for the Gospel. The final conclusion of the Book is vital in order to understand its over-all meaning.

Ecclesiastes 12:1. Remember your Creator now

"Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, now the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them."

A life without God is a life unfulfilled. The knowledge of God can bring comfort to the trials of illness, sickness and the obstacles of life. Thus, there can be more enjoyment of life with hope of eternal life.

12:13-14. Fear God and obey his commandments.

12:13. "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man."

12:14. "For God shall bring every work into judgment with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil."

There are two prominent problems in the Book of Ecclesiastes. First are those who lack purpose and direction in life. Secondly are those who think life is unfair. In the former one should respect God and follow his principles for living. In the latter they should remember that God will review all, the good and the evil. Thus, all people should work toward the single purpose of knowing God.

The writer in several passages seems to note conflicting points of view. However the writer often uses an ancient form of rhetoric known as "diatribe" or "dispution speech," in which a speaker quotes an opposing point of view in order to refute it.

Ecclesiastes helps discover the true purpose in life. Thus, a life without God is empty. Here Solomon teaches that the meaning of life is not found in knowledge, money, pleasure, work or popularity. Thus true satisfaction comes from knowing what God wants us to do.

Solomon's general observations: A right Time For Everything:

Ecclesiastes 3:1. "To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

Season and time in these passages' note that one time or event should not be confused with another. God has a plan for all people.

3:2. "A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted."

No barriers in life should prevent us from believing in God. In this passage nature has fixed the order of events and man cannot change it. For example man cannot die before he is born nor can a plant be plucked before it is planted.

3:3. "A time to kill, and a time to heal: a time to break down, and a time to build up."

Here we see the actions of man introduced into the list. Solomon does not profess to state just how the proper time is to be determined. Each case is decided on its own merits. Thus, things are to be done at the appropriate time.

3:8. We should not hate evil people, but we should hate what they do.

3:13. What is important in this verse is the thought of the source of our blessings. Our food and other blessings of life should be remembered as gifts from God (See James 1: 17).
