Ecc 8: 16-17 When I applied my heart to know wisdom and to see the business that is done on earth, even though one sees no sleep day or night, 17 then I saw all the work of God, that a man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun. For though a man labors to discover it, yet he will not find it; moreover, though a wise man attempts to know it, he will not be able to find it.
Why do we have to connect death, fear of God, life and believing Jesus Christ? Many regardless of religion seek the truth in their life. Many transform themselves as saints and go to a remote place in pursuit of finding God, knowledge and eternity. They seek who is the real God and what is their purpose of life in this world. Some pursue it till they find it according to their judgment and some get sidetracked because of worldly affairs and issues. Fear of God begins when one pursue to find the real truth or real God. It is not when one following the traditions and its requirements according to their religion or deities. This is also true if one born to name sake Christian parents. The wise man says in Ecc 8:17, even though a man labors to discover it, he can not find the work of God done under the sun leave alone above the sun. If a man can not discover it, why he is pursuing it? Is it vain to pursue finding the truth? The heart of the man is designed to search for its Maker. Till it finds it, it will not have rest or peace. That is why men pursue. So in this pursuit will they be able to find it?
