bring about the same political results to the USA as King Solomon’s did to Israel?
What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9)
In My Opinion
All we have to do is read or listen to the news about the USA election and compare the circumstances of 3000 years ago and the truth of Solomon’s above statement is substantiated.
I challenge you to read this article and compare Solomon’s reign to today’s election issues and decide if you agree. I only hope and pray that the same results will not be the same.
As you read the article, I also challenge you to identify current political ideologies and terminologies we now use such as statists, secularism, conservatism, liberalism, intellectualism, elitism, etc.
Solomon as a Political Leader HERE
Near the end of his life he wrote his Ecclesiastes after he realized how he wasted his life chasing after the wind.
When will we wise up and stop repeating the follies of past generations? We can start by following the advice in the Conclusion of Ecclesiastes.
The Conclusion of the Matter (Chapter 12)
9 Not only was the Teacher wise, but he also imparted knowledge to the people. He pondered and searched out and set in order many proverbs.10 The Teacher searched to find just the right words, and what he wrote was upright and true.
11 The words of the wise are like goads, their collected sayings like firmly embedded nails—given by one shepherd.[b] 12 Be warned, my son, of anything in addition to them.
Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body.
13 Now all has been heard;
here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments,
for this is the duty of all mankind.
14 For God will bring every deed into judgment,
including every hidden thing,
whether it is good or evil.
