Anyone who has met personally, The lord Jesus Christ, has felt both the bitterness of sin in all its black darkness and the pure glory holiness and beauty of The Lord Jesus Christ, The Word of God. A relationship with The true and only living God can only begin and lead to one point, humiliation and reverent fear of God, which is true joy. A true sense of ourselves apart from Him, which is as empty and formless as darkness, and a true sense of being in Him, who loved us, which is fulness of joy. A true born of The Spirit child of God can only come to the conclusion that Paul the apostle came to, the chief of sinners! At conversion a man meets The Father Son and Holy Spirit. There are no exceptions to this rule as the child is brought in an instant from darkness to light, from Satan to Jesus. In the presence of The Holy one there can be no other reaction than to condemn oneself and Justify God. Religion without emotion and experience and a living communion with Christ The Word By The Holy Spirit can only be cold dark hypocrisy no mater the accumulated knowledge a person devoid of such may have and can only be at best idolatry and self glorification, the very antithesis of the effect a true relationship with Christ affects. The Spirit of God navigates his sheep between the rocks of self righteousness and idolatry continually leading them forward and upward to look to the source of all that is until the day when he finally looks into the eyes of the Great Shepard and understands fully the words of the Prophet Isaiah "Only in The Lord are righteousness and strength". The child born of The Spirit is born into this knowledge which has been called "The mystery of Godliness". Any who claim to know God more so to be known by him and yet cannot confess to have found that the foundation of all being is based in the absolute sovereignty of God is a false sheep a wolf in sheeps clothing and has never it would appear tasted of the river of life which flows from the throne of God who is the fount and source of all things. Any doctrine that espouses the creature as a source of anything in itself teaches the very nature of idolatry which is ultimately separation from God where is darkness which is the absence of light having no form or substance in itself. Indeed great is the mystery of Godliness and many that profess to understand the nature and heart off the revelation of God in scripture have not seen it. For to understand that mystery a man must be in The Spirit and therefore born of the Spirit for such things are spiritually discerned. Simply stated The Apostle James moved by The Spirit tells us, " Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow." What that actually means only The Spirit of truth can reveal. To those who know their is glory to come for such desire only to look up at Him who is "The alfa and the omega the beginning and the end".

comment Revelations 18:23 - Who or what are the “Merchants” and the “magic spell” that led the whole Earth astray?
But for some 15 years I have listened to the Word of God only and questions I tried for years to understand He explained in 2 seconds and hundreds of questions I have had answered.! "Unless the Lord builds the house the builders build in vein"! I had heard it said that two things are vital for a Christian, prayer and the word...it sounded so simple, I loved all my histories, theologies and commentaries and rarely sat and listen to the Word, sometimes we miss the wood for the trees. The wilderness is the best place to listen to Gods voice! That may mean just you and The Word. Still quiet voice.

@MarkEdward Mark I understand what your saying now. You mean, whether the original readers were right or wrong is irrelevant, your intention is to simply reveal what they thought, irrespective of weather they were right or wrong. I understand now, I hope..! Forgive me I am not familiar with the terms any longer. To be honest I spent many years doing so and I found to much information can be a bad thing. I found that in many words there is some sin. Sometimes we need to step back from all the voices and listen to One and pray. I had many questions some years ago and had many more from those...

@Mike Yes the answer to this question is simple but what is really interesting, is what it reveals about man. People truly believe that if they are wealthy or have easy interesting jobs they are blessed by God. Job had to learn a hard lesson to understand the nature of grace..I fear most, who claim the name of Christ, have never been through the trial of fire, where we are seen to be but dross and dust. Only when we see we have nothing, do we look outside of self for righteousness and find it alone in Jesus. A persons first meeting with Christ is one of exposure or nakedness! Painful and pure.

The self righteous and physically rich will always miss- interpret this. The fallen mind of man thinks, that if it is rich in worldly goods, it is blessed, how far from the truth and yet how prevalent is this notion. Not many rich, not many noble, not many wise,for God has chosen the foolish, the weak, to put to naught...No doubt the rulers of Christs day looked down upon Jesus, as he was a manual worker. The ruling classes always consider themselves as superior. Their prejudices supported by miss-interpretations of scripture. From Nazareth, can anything good come out of Nazareth.

Yes Mike and really that is the whole point of Ecclesiastes as you well know. Solomon truly and clearly lays before mankind the vanity of life without God. "What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and looses his soul." Solomon was well qualified by his wanderings through pleasure and wisdom and madness to pronounce on the man without God. He walked his way and found it to be empty and vain. I think you have touched the spirit of my question in a beautiful way. We are all under the curse so there is no distinction. Your interpretation is perfect. (continued)

comment What do the words “For the letter killeth” mean in 2 Corinthians 3:6
I understand that 'ceremonial law' is should we say 'mans invention'. As a label it is very clear what is meant by it, that is all the temple duties sacrifices etc connected with the Old Covenant. I believe some people claim that the 'letter' is the ceremonial law, that's why I put it in the question!

So the law (letter) kills by exposing our need for mercy in Christ. When the law came I died.
