Ecclesiastes 1:9 What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.
During my absence, it was shared with me that people were very alarmed about the social autopsy of the State of California. There's no big surprise in what's about to take place there. History does repeat itself. During the 400 yrs. between the end of O.T. Scripture and the beginning of the N.T., many changes had taken place in Israel. Much like America today, the society was divided into the political & religious right & the political & religious “left” & there was no-- unified national identity.
The Pharisees were searching for a nat’l identity in Judaism, while the Sadducees, were embracing roman philosophy (The philosophy of the world).
Theologian Matthew Henry wrote about politics & religion and he said: “It is no good divinity-- that swallows up humanity.” Meaning: anytime you have a nation that--- is morally divided, you have a nation, that can’t contain their zeal, and then you have zealous people separating to the left & to the right. The result is: Personal liberties begin to be taken away.
What happens to a society of people that doesn’t feel a sense of nat’l identity? When asked about her nat’l identity, one lady stated, I’m not an American, I’m just a person living in America. Even tho’ she was a citizen by birth, she felt no sense of political or religious nat’l identity.
Praise God there is something new under the sun: God said (referring to the Incarnation) Jeremiah 31:22, “The LORD will create a new thing on earth— a woman will surround a man.”
