There Is So Much More to Life!

There is a reality that we all come to understand at some point in our lives. As an individual, we can make sense of the conclusion recorded in

Ecclesiastes 1:14, 15

14  I saw all the works that were done under the sun, And look! everything was futile, a chasing after the wind.a15  What is crooked cannot be made straight, And what is lacking cannot possibly be counted.

There is a futility in our existence, we come into the world with nothing, what we acquire through family and education can lead to the accumulation of wealth, property and influence, it can be snatched away at any time and when we eventually die we leave with nothing. We can take none of the things we own with us.

Give it a few weeks and life has carried on without us, we start to slip from the memory of friends and acquaintances.

In life, there are two constants – uncertainty of how long it will last and the certainty of death.

The future of the Human Race

The analysis of all forms of government, all economies, environments, communities, major religions and philosophies live precariously on the brink, science and technology move us all closer to extinction and the beauty of this is we can all watch it wherever we are. As never before globalisation enables us to realise that the planet, society and individual existence of all life is threatened and our survival is at stake.

Should we be bothered? “Life finds a way” as the famous quote from Jurassic Park sums up the attitude of many. The issues in Ukraine have brought home to Europe just how tenuous peace is, something that Africa, Asia, South and Central America already know. But “I’m alright Jack so pull up the ladder” or burying our heads in the sand won’t work anymore. These issues and concerns are touching all of our lives.

Governments speak of peace, have conferences, sign treaties and make great promises but what we know is just one Leader can change all of those proposals and the rest weakly stand by and do little.

Science established a way of coping with COVID but can’t cure it or eradicate it, the truth is that Governments do not want to look at how it became so prevalent, was it a mistake in a Lab? Human contact with diseased animals? Who gets a vaccine is determined on the basis of how much Money a Government has, the largest population centres are often the last to receive these vaccines and life-saving treatments. 500,000,000 people have contracted Covid 6,259,000 have died. The daily death rate has been reduced but not all the figures have been collected. Look at the Data listed on Worldometer to review the staggering impact humans have on this planet as we race towards a population of 8 billion. Then recognise that 12 nations have the capacity to kill everything on the planet in less than 24 hours. Humanity must realise just how futile life is. Like trying to control the tide.

Christian religions

They speak of peace but bless weapons of war, tell people that God is on their side and he fights for them. What outstanding hypocrisy! Hope does not originate with the peddlers of their own importance.

The Christian leaders are clearly instructed to “Seek first the ‘Kingdom'”. The Kingdom they have taught Christians to repeatedly pray for in Matthew 6: 9, 10 “Thy Kingdom Come!” is God’s Kingdom.

We inherited the problems we face today, the human condition, alienation from God, a lack of real understanding. The Bible explains what happened, why it happened and when things are set to change! To find the real meaning or purpose of life we need to address these issues.

In law, ignorance isn’t a defence because we have a responsibility to find the information, establish the facts and apply them. Yet so many settle for the word of others. In a recent conversation, it was made clear to me that Bible accounts were as accurate as Greek and Roman Myths and local legends. So the first question was which had the person read the Bible or Homer? Unsurprisingly the person responded with neither.

The conclusion they had drawn was based on what others had told him. How foolish, note the words of the proverb “When anyone replies to a matter before he hears the facts, It is foolish and humiliating.”

We have a real choice today, find out what is really going on and be ready for the consequences or just let things carry on as normal, hoping that some miracle will happen and humans will learn to live in peace without the threat of extinction.

The clear point of this post is that if you agree that there should be so much more to life then don’t wait for someone else to tell you, Study the Bible, get to the truth of why things are the way they are.

Establish for yourself that there is more to life now and that the future is full of hope, we continue to pray for God’s will to be done on earth, research what that will is and how you are already in line for access but more needs to be done.

You can Enjoy Life Forever and that life is full of meaning and opportunity. First, you need to discover what is required to line up with the millions looking forward to God’s Kingdom Government led by Jesus Christ
