Ecclesiastes 3:14 – Whatever God is doing 

12-01-2021 - Posted by Andre Piet

I know that whatever the One, Elohim is doing, it shall be for the eon; Onto it there can be nothing to add, And from it here can be nothing to subtract; The One Elohim He does it that they may fear before Him.

Our existence on earth, from the cradle to the grave, is but a small dot on the map of the eons (world eras). As far as a person is of importance, it is only because GOD has a plan and realizes it. Only what He does has lasting value and defies the eons. All that a man thinks to add to GOD’S work with his intellect, ingenuity, strength and zeal is vanity. It does not carry any weight. GOD does not need man for the realization of his plans. Then man could boast about his own contributions. None of that! Fortunately, it is also not possible that our plans and activities can subtract from GOD’S work or purpose. He who dwells in heaven laughs at such claims (Ps. 2: 4).

It is this insight that puts a person in his place. I am workmanship, He is the Maker. That attitude is called “the fear of GOD”. And there wisdom begins (Ps. 111: 10). He will make it!
