A certain man did a work, it was a great work. He builds houses, planted vineyards. He planted gardens, orchards, planted trees in them of all kinds of fruit.

He made pools of water to water the wood that brought forth fruit.

He had servants and maidens and had servants born in his house.

He had great possessions of great and small cattle above all there was in Jerusalem.

He gathered silver, and gold. He had peculiar treasures of kings and of provinces.

He had singers and the delight of the sons of men, as musical instruments and that of all sorts.

He was great and increased more than all that were before him in Jerusalem, also wisdom remained with him.

Whatever his eyes desired, he kept not from him, and he withheld not his heart from any joy. He rejoiced in all his labor.

It was a known fact he did it all and took all the credit for getting whatever it was he wanted.

He had been granted to achieve whatever he wanted and was very boastful about it.

There appeared to be nothing he could not have in this world as far as the natural things in life.

Yet something was lacking, when he took a real look at all that he himself had accomplished and saw that it meant nothing. He admitted that everything he had achieved was just vain. The definition of vain is, having no real value.

When he came to himself he hated life, he hated his works and all of his labor.

Reason he hated it all was he saw himself in everything he did and God was not in anything, God was not lifted up, he took all the glory himself. This man prospered more than any.

So why did he have to learn this lesson? He had nothing of any value yet had everything this world had to offer.

He was doing a work and his labors were all of him self, Ecclesiastes chapter 2.

He was made an example to the whole world as one that was so full of him self that it would go down in history as one that had it all yet had nothing?

We are to learn from this and not get caught up into vanity and lifting up of ones self.

This should make those that read this take an inventory of their own works and labors to check and see if what they are doing are of God or if they are just full of self.

Yet many just keep going on as if no such a man ever existed and no such lesson has ever been taught to mankind.

This does away with the myth that prosperity means one is in the perfect will of God for it is a far cry from being in the will of God.

David had learned this lesson also and he made it very plain in the book of Psalms 127: 1 it says, Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it, except the Lord keep a city, the watchman waketh but in vain. This is telling us that anything that is done if it is not God or God’s will it is all done in vain, a waste of time if you please.

The work that is done the labor that has gone forth, if it is not God centered then it is worth nothing, though there seems to be much prospering

In the book of Revelation 20: 12& 13 tells us,  I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS.

And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were JUDGED EVERY MAN ACCOURDING TO THEIR WORKS.

Revelations 22: 12 , Behold I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

This should create in you a desire to do only God’s works and labor just for the glory of the Lord for if we are judged but the works and our labors. Each of us need to examine ourselves and our motives as to whether they are for God’s Kingdom and not building a kingdom of man.

In the book of Revelations tells us several times “He that hath an ear let him hear what the spirit says unto the churches”.

The word also says, St. John 10” I say unto you, he that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.” If you try and obtain something that is not of God, this makes it very plain where you stand before the Lord as well.

In the same chapter of John it goes on to say, “He goeth before them and the sheep follow Him: for they know His voice”. Upon knowing this fact it makes it very clear that only His sheep know His voice. This should make one truly ask God to search their heart and seek His voice only and to know His voice.

We truly need to hear the voice of the Lord and if you cannot hear the voice of the Lord then where does that leave one standing?

The children of God need to stop following prosperity and truly know those that they are listening to, if they hear the voice of the Lord and if they do not and it is all about vanity. It would be a very wise move to just clear out and move on.

Don’t build your house on the sand; build it on the rock, the rock Christ Jesus.

When the time comes for each of us to stand before the Lord we shall be judged by our works and there will be laying blame on those that we followed.

Follow Christ you can’t go wrong if you are following Christ, work for the Lord, and build for the Lord, labor for the Lord and not self.

My prayer is this message will open your eyes before it is too late.
