The Earth does not change

Ecclesiastes Bible Background

09.17.2014 Old Testament: Ecc 1.5–7

To read the Bible in a year, read Ecclesiastes 1–3 on September 17, In the year of our Lord 2014

By Don Ruhl

Our generation shall go the way of all previous generations; we shall have our time on the Earth, and then we will pass away, but the Earth remains and so does it cycles,

The sun also rises, and the sun goes down,
And hastens to the place where it arose.
The wind goes toward the south,
And turns around to the north;
The wind whirls about continually,
And comes again on its circuit.
All the rivers run into the sea,
Yet the sea is not full;
To the place from which the rivers come,
There they return again.
(Ecclesiastes 1.5–7) 

What shall we make of those observations on creation? The Earth goes on, but we appear to disappear. However, the Bible shows us, the Book of Ecclesiastes shows us, that while that is how it appears, the truth is we do continue and we shall meet God.
