Vanity of vanities, ALL IS VANITY.

Ecclesiastes 1:2
Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

Ecclesiastes 2:11
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 2:15
Then said I in my heart, As it happeneth to the fool, so it happeneth even to me; and why was I then more wise? Then I said in my heart, that this also is vanity.

Ecclesiastes 2:17
Therefore I hated life; because the work that is wrought under the sun is grievous unto me: for all is vanity and vexation of spirit.

Ecclesiastes 2:19
And who knoweth whether he shall be a wise man or a fool? yet shall he have rule over all my labour wherein I have laboured, and wherein I have shewed myself wise under the sun. This is also vanity.

Proverbs 30:8
Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:

Psalms 39:5
Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.



“VANITY” – Oxford dictionary – “the quality of being worthless or futile”

  

What prompted King Solomon to proclaim vanity of vanities?

During his reign, his kingdom was secure; prosperity and riches abound; and yet at the end, he saw that all is vanity. 

How can that be? 

What did he see that made him tremble at his core? 

Is he the same person that wrote “Song of Solomon”?

In all his wisdom, King Solomon allowed idolatry to endure in his family which was his first grave mistake.  He allowed too much religious freedom among his many wives and concubines mainly also because many of them were only there due to political alliances or just plain old lusts after strange women and he did not keep the LORD’s Commandments. King Solomon in all his wisdom did not follow after the will of the LORD but followed after the will of his strange wives and their strange gods.  In the end, his Kingdom was ripped apart into pieces because he did evil in the sight of the LORD.



1st Kings 11:4
“For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father.”

1st Kings 11:5
“For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.”

1st Kings 11:6
“And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father.” 

1st Kings 11:7
“Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon.”

1st Kings 11:8
“And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods.”



Even a wise King should need a good counsellor by his side.   

When the Glory and Splendour of the LORD left King Solomon, everything to him had become vanity. 

The earth is full of the glory of the LORD. 

Can the earth survive without the sunlight? 

Can a man survive without the illumination and love of the LORD? 

Can the animals and plants give out sunlight by themselves? 

Their images that we see, are they merely a reflection of the sunlight?

Without sunlight, all is black; without sunlight all will not be able to exist.

The parables of the sun, moon and stars are just lessons to be learned about and in relation to God. 
Please DO NOT go worshipping the sun, moon and stars like heathens do.  

Please refrain from witchcraft and black magic; the Lord will destroy those that deal with these strange crafts – to the Israelites first and to the Gentiles also.  

All works of man without the LORD is VANITY.   

Be it good or bad is all nothing but vanity.  

A wise King sitting upon his throne alone is vanity; 

A fool and a jester sitting on the floor is vanity; 

A person working hard with his hands is vanity; 

A lazy person idling about with nothing to do is vanity; 

A person with plenty of good food to eat is vanity;

A person dying of hunger is vanity; 

A couple in love is vanity;

A lonely man out of love is vanity;

Everything under the sun is VANITY without the LORD.


Psalms 55:22
Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

Proverbs 18:14
The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?

Who is the sustainer of life; that we can so easily ignore?   

Who is the giver of life; that we did not hesitate to crucify HIM ???


Ecclesiastes 7:1
A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth.

Isaiah 13:12
I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.

Isaiah 28:16
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

Hiding under the warmth and protection of the LORD MOST HIGH Jesus of Nazareth.

Psalms 119:50
This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.

Matthew 23:37
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

Psalms 17:8
Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,

Psalms 64:2
Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:

Psalms 143:9
Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me.

Isaiah 32:2
And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.

Psalms 32:7
Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.

Psalms 119:114
Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.

Isaiah 2:5
O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

Esther 8:16
The Jews had light, and gladness, and joy, and honour.


For those who have reared chickens before might easily understand the verse in Matthew 23:37.

My dad liked to rear chickens and ducks occasionally.  He would buy newly hatched chicks and place them in a box of shredded newspapers and place a warm light bulb just slightly above the box.  In the afternoon, he would bring them out to the garden to play under the warm sunlight and at night he would switch on the light bulb to keep the chicks warm.   All the chicks would gather themselves near the light bulb to keep warm.  One thing we noticed is that chicks can die off relatively fast if left out in the cold.  (sorry to say that there were a day or two when we forgot to switch on the light bulb at night or the light bulb burnt out during the night)

In kampung/rural village areas one can always get to see chickens running around the compound. Chicks depend heavily on the hen’s protection, comfort and warmth during the night or rainy seasons by hiding or snuggling under the hen’s wings.

2nd Kings 4:32
And when Elisha was come into the house, behold, the child was dead, and laid upon his bed.
2nd Kings 4:33
He went in therefore, and shut the door upon them twain, and prayed unto the LORD.
2nd Kings 4:34
And he went up, and lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands: and stretched himself upon the child; and the flesh of the child waxed warm.
2nd Kings 4:35
Then he returned, and walked in the house to and fro; and went up, and stretched himself upon him: and the child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes.


Our dependence on the LORD is NOT a sign of weakness or insecurity, as it is for our own protection and guidance because we are still very young and there is so much more to know and learn from the LORD.   One of the main things to master is to be responsible for our own actions. 


Isaiah 65:20
“There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.”
In the Bible, we are often referred to as “little children”.  We often think we have grown up at the age of 16 or 61 but in fact we are very much relatively still young, na├»ve and ignorant.  Think of the times of Adam and Eve when people lived to around one thousand years old.  Noah was well over 400 years old when he got married.    In Noah’s time, the world was already in deep moral decay.  

In the Biblical timing of 1 day is equivalent to 1000 years. 

It can be used as a parable from the LORD that in 1 day God made man; that is only after 1000 years can a person “begin” to grasp (not even “fully” yet) what it is to be a responsible man; before that you are still basically a child. 

Today the age of consent should be at least 21 years old instead of 13 or 16 in many countries.   

If it were up to me, there is NO consent under any age until the day you die or at least until the day you are physically and spiritually ready to take FULL responsibility for your own actions and 16 years old is hardly the age of responsibility, more like an age of the illusion of responsibility when a 16 year old child wants to be free and thinks that he or she is not answerable to anyone but himself.  But the FACT is, a child is a child and at 16 you do not have the number of years to garner enough experience to be responsible. 

Just ENJOY your childhood for heaven’s sake.   Do you want to be bogged down by the heavy responsibility of broken hearts or raising children when you are basically still a child yourself? 
A child should be given enough time and protection to enjoy their childhood innocence.  Protection and nurturing should be the primary objective for parents to give to their children – not expensive toys and pretty clothes.

Anyone who wants to get married should ask permission from their parents before doing so.  For those who are alone, who do not have parents and no senior members in their family or no senior Church elders in their communities should still seek God’s guidance and consent in prayer before venturing out into the world. 


Isaiah 34:8
For it is the day of the LORD's vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.
Isaiah 34:9
And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into a brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.
Isaiah 34:10
It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.
Isaiah 34:11
But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness.
Isaiah 34:12
They shall call the nobles thereof to the kingdom, but none shall be there, and all her princes shall be nothing.


People who chose to believe and teach evolution of species from nothingness/water/stone just because they do not wish to acknowledge that there is a Creator looking out for their well being.  Evolutionists in a way, is not wrong; man was made from the dust of the earth and from nothing was the earth made.  But who gave man animation and a perpetual spirit?  Evolutionists just left the Creator out of their picture and it is not wrong that if their Creator is left out of the picture, then they will return back to their theory of nothingness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth in total darkness. 

Even so, for those who believe and pray to rocks and images of idols, statues of “Mary” so called mother of Jesus and many others so called saints; do so just to "spite" the Lord’s Ten Commandments. 

[by the way, the real Mary who gave birth to Jesus is safe in her heavenly abode – she does not hear your prayers because she is not your Creator.  Only your Creator, the LORD Most High listens to your prayers and makes decisions on what to do with your prayers.      - how many times do we have to hammer the Ten Commandments into the heads of the Roman Catholics before they understand where they went wrong?  If they still do not understand, then it is very clear that they are worshipping ANOTHER Jesus who is an Antichrist because the Jesus who came to us 2000 years ago, he came as a Jew. ]

Who then is the one normally associated with so much spitefulness and malevolence?  Lucifer and his fallen angels (also known as ANTICHRISTS) have separated themselves from their Creator, the giver of life. If you leave and separate yourselves from the light and life, what is left is only darkness and death.  Lucifer and Mammon used to sit at the right and left hand of the LORD Most High.  After their departure, the LORD has replaced them with Michael on His right hand side and Gabriel on His left hand side. 

Luciferians Christians may display a few similar attributes as anointed Christians and may even preach similar topics as Christians do because know and understand that Lucifer used to work for the LORD Most High long before man was created; Lucifer knows all the workings of the LORD and he has been trying to get people to worship him the same way as they are suppose to worship the LORD Most High.  That is why the devil is able to confuse, deceive and seduce even the elect of God.  
(I will attempt to describe in more detail next time)

Mark 13:22
For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

Exodus 20:4
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.


Isaiah 44:15
Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take thereof, and warm himself; yea, he kindleth it, and baketh bread; yea, he maketh a god, and worshippeth it; he maketh it a graven image, and falleth down thereto.

Isaiah 44:16
He burneth part thereof in the fire; with part thereof he eateth flesh; he roasteth roast, and is satisfied: yea, he warmeth himself, and saith, Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire:
Isaiah 44:17
And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image: he falleth down unto it, and worshippeth it, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me; for thou art my god.

Isaiah 44:18
They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand.

Isaiah 44:19
And none considereth in his heart, neither is there knowledge nor understanding to say, I have burned part of it in the fire; yea, also I have baked bread upon the coals thereof; I have roasted flesh, and eaten it: and shall I make the residue thereof an abomination? shall I fall down to the stock of a tree?

Isaiah 44:20
He feedeth on ashes: a deceived heart hath turned him aside, that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand?



Recently an acquaintance of mine took his own life because he made a few honest mistakes and lost all of his client’s money.  He was an investment broker/banker.  Why is a white-collar job just as hazardous as a person working in a nuclear facility or a policeman or in the army?
If you join the army or police force, you are directly prepared to accept the risk of death.
Why God did not intervene to save his life?  He believed in God and is a Christian.

Is money a form or part of the mark of the beast?

We are not allowed to buy or sell without it.

Millions and Billions of people throughout the centuries have died and are crushed because of it.

Men have set themselves on fire because they are overwhelmed by it.

Revelation 13:17
"And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."

Revelation 14:11
"And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name."


Corrupt people have worshipped money by letting money dictate who they are and what they do.

Filthy rich men have thought of themselves as gods, when they surround themselves with lots of money and fame.    They give thought to nothing else but ways to find money.

I am pretty sure that they jolly well know that there is NO WAY for them to bring all those money that they have stolen to the grave with them onto the next life.

So why do they still worship money?

Those people who worship money simply because they DO NOT want to honour the Living God who created them.

Tares have to find other means and ways to replace the LORD Most High; and what has taken in the place of GOD, is an antigod, an antichrist.
For those who would bring honour to the Lord Most High, they do not idolize money.


Worldly people have coveted money, gold and precious commodities in all forms and manner.   Because of money, people are wiling to kill, steal and destroy in order to get it.
Greedy people, are willing to kill millions of people by hunger so that they can keep the price of commodities high.

They are willing to go through great lengths and device complicated methods (stock market / complicated banking and investment & debt transfers) in order to steal what they cannot earn.

They have no qualms or conscience when it comes to destroying other people, destroying the earth, and in the process, destroying themselves in order to make a quick buck.

The Police and the Army learn to defend themselves by physical combat and psychological warfare; and yet they are NOT immune to death.

What about the rest of us?

How can we defend ourselves from ravenous wolves (antichrists)?

How can you defend yourselves from the world of Babylon that tells you that you are worthless?
Money (the mark of the beast) tells a money worshipper that the monetarily poor people are worthless because they do not have any money in their pockets.

So, what is the “worth” of a person?


Proverbs 10:20
“The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth.”

How do you fight to survive in Babylon?

There are no bystanders in this fallen world of
Babylon / the Kingdoms of the 4 Beasts. Defend yourselves in the LORD or be consumed by the many antichrists.

Learn therefore to defend yourselves with the ARMOUR OF GOD. (Ephesians 6:11-17)

Ephesians 6:11
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Ephesians 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Ephesians 6:13
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Ephesians 6:14
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

Ephesians
6:15
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

Ephesians
6:16
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

Ephesians
6:17
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:





Ecclesiastes 4:1
So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.
Ecclesiastes 4:2
Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive.
Ecclesiastes 4:3
Yea, better is he than both they, which hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.
Ecclesiastes 4:4
Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbour. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit.
Ecclesiastes 4:5
The fool foldeth his hands together, and eateth his own flesh.
Ecclesiastes 4:6
Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit.
Ecclesiastes 4:7
Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun.
Ecclesiastes 4:8
There is one alone, and there is not a second; yea, he hath neither child nor brother: yet is there no end of all his labour; neither is his eye satisfied with riches; neither saith he, For whom do I labour, and bereave my soul of good? This is also vanity, yea, it is a sore travail.
Ecclesiastes 4:9
Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
Ecclesiastes 4:10
For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.
Ecclesiastes 4:11
Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?
Ecclesiastes 4:12
And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
Ecclesiastes 4:13
Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished.
Ecclesiastes 4:14
For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor.
Ecclesiastes 4:15
I considered all the living which walk under the sun, with the second child that shall stand up in his stead.
Ecclesiastes 4:16
There is no end of all the people, even of all that have been before them: they also that come after shall not rejoice in him. Surely this also is vanity and vexation of spirit.

TO BURN OR NOT TO BURN

Additions on 7th December 2011
Additions on 14th December 2011



TO BURN THE EARTH OR NOT TO BURN THE EARTH, THAT IS THE QUESTION.




Isaiah 6:3
And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
(* 28th December 2011)


Revelation 11:18
"And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth."


Many Church leaders both in the mainstream as well as in cult denominations have preached and are still preaching that the earth is going to be burnt up at the end of the age.

There are quite a number of verses in the Bible that mentioned the melting away of elements and also those many 2012 biblical and non-biblical prophecies running around.

For example:-

2 Peter 3:10
“But the day of the Lord will come as athief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a greatnoise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and theworks that are therein shall be burned up.”



But in this case, I beg to differ, as it will be leaning more towards the "poetic" Psalms 112:10.


Psalms 112:10
“The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.”

Isaiah 66:22
“For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.”


Please understand that the preaching of "rapture" during the tribulation of the earth has long been somewhat distorted. Christians will and have been going through some form tribulation for the past 2000 years in various manners and at different times, (while some are spared from harsh tribulations) and all shall come out of the tribulation as gold tried in fire; but the wicked shall receive their judgement from Jesus Christ and righteous retribution.

There is no such thing as "Christians" escaping the tribulation in a so called “rapture” and leaving the earth to be burnt up together with all unbelievers or did they mean Israel and ALL non-Christians?


Matthew 21:31
“Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.” 

Matthew 21:32
“For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.”

Matthew 7:21
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”


Truly IF none righteous is left on earth today, the LORD will burn up all the earth (Luke 17:29).


But there are many true believers of Jesus of Nazareth here on earth and Israel is here to stay.


The two Angels of the LORD that surveyed Sodom and Gomorrah are also surveying today's Sodom and Babylon.


The report on the survey of today’s Sodom and Gomorrah/Babylon is favourable and a little MORE than a very small remnant is left unto us. (Isaiah 1:9)

As such, the LORD Most High, WILL SPARE ALL the place/earth for their sakes.


Isaiah 1:9
Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.


Isaiah 1:10
Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.


Genesis 18:26
And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.


Genesis 19:24
Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;


Luke 17:29
But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.


2 Peter 2:6
And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;

Malachi chapter 4 – verse 1,
“For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.”

Malachi 4:2 –
“But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.” 

Malachi 4:3 –
And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. 

Malachi 4:4 –
Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.

Malachi 4:5 –
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

Malachi 4:6 –
And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. 

Matthew 17:11
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.


When the LORD Most High aka Jesus of Nazareth returns, it will be for judgement of the peoples of the earth and NOT for cleaning up the war torn countries or burnt up earth.

The purpose of Jesus Christ’s return is NOT to wipe our behinds. Why do preachers expect GOD to return as a maid to clean up after His children?

We, each of us have to clean up our own backyards.  

Each household, each company, each state and each nation are responsible to clean up after themselves. 

Just like when Jesus commanded His Disciples to collect back all the bread and fish that was left thrown on the ground after He fed the 5000 people. Everything that Jesus did 2000 years ago are full of meaning and examples and nothing was done in vain. 

So must all who serve the LORD do the same, leave nothing to waste and clean up after ourselves.


Isaiah 45:17
"But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end."

Ephesians 3:21
"Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen."
