NUTTIN NEW?

Ecclesiastes 1:9 That which has been - - is that which will be, And that which has been done is - - that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun.

Ecclesiastes 3:15 That which has been is now; and that which is to be has already been; and God requires that which is past.

I have thought about these verses and the part where it says there is nothing new under the sun caused me to wonder what the writer meant by that.

Now as I look at my Mickey Mouse watch on my wrist it is newer than the sun dial the writer used. And when I go to the car dealer and look at a brand new B.M.W. With a price tag of $80,000.00 I believe that is newer than the donkey the writer rode.

We know for a fact that there are many new things invented everyday, and the writer also knew there were new items on the market even in his time.

But from GODS point of view there is nothing new. He has knowledge of all things that was, is and ever will be. Nothing can be invented that he has not been aware of, and that He already has full knowledge of. Someone writes a new song, GOD has heard it before it was written (and probably doesn’t like it).

Someone develops a new hybrid plant, GOD knows all about how it came be.

Someone decides to commit a sin -- God knew it was going to be done before it happened.

Because of GODS foreknowledge, our lives have already been scripted; our history has been recorded in GODS book. Our names have been written in the book of life. All that is left for us to do is to live out our lives as he has written it down.

God’s foreknowledge takes all of the fun out of sinning. Stealing leaves an empty feeling in our stomach, because GOD knew you were going to do it. Guilt is multiplied many times over when you realize you are guilty in GODS sight prior to doing the event. Unbearable stress occurs, knowing there is nothing new that you can do. That there is no act that you can perform that GOD hasn’t seen you do.

The time has come to own up with GOD, and walk uprightly before HIM. There is no use to try to think up some prayer that will impress him, for HE knows what you are doing, and the reason you are doing it.

This is why praying out of your spirit is so very important! There is no guile, no pretense just honesty before HIM. Doesn't it make more sense to live this way?

When Jesus saw Nathanael he said behold an Israelite in whom there is no guile. Standing without guile (deceit) before GOD is the only to go.
