A close examination of Ecclesiastes7:29 discloses that man was created perfectly upright but ‘they have sought out many schemes.’
Do not forget that we are considering these ratios from the standpoint of those who are bent on entering the kingdom of God. To those who are not interested in it,they are comfortable with the ratio.
Do you remember it? Let us read it in the words of the Preacher,
‘Here is what I have found,’says
‘Adding one thing to the other to
find out the reasong.
Which my soul still seeks but I
one man among a thousand I have
But a woman among all these I
have not found.’ Ecclesiastes7:27-28.
Now,let us continue to consider the schemes or the reason for these ratios. The schemes are many but we shall consider some of them one after the other.
After the fall of man(kind) in the garden of Eden,satan had been on rampage to make mankind a permanen enemy of his maker and he (satan) was and has been succeeding.
The Preacher in Ecclesiastes7:29 records that mankind was made upright. This is in agreement with Genesis 5:1-2;
‘This is the book of the genelogy of Adam.
In the day that God created man.
He made him in the likeness of God.
He created them male and female,and
blessed them and called them Mankind
in the day they were created.’
Mankind was created upright like his Creator. The schemes introduced by satan to mankind grew to higher level as evident in Genesis 6:1-2,
‘Now it came to pass when men
began to multiply on the face of the earth,
and daughters were born to them,
that the sons of God saw the daughters of men,
that they were beautiful;and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.’
Can you see the continuation of wrong choice that started in the garden of Eden here? The first choice was based on ‘good’ and ‘pleasant’. Multiplication of mankind also led to multiplication of ‘schemes’. The schemes are still based on ‘beautiful’ and they choose for themselves. Another reign of confusion started and continued until now.
As a result of lust for beauty,mankind has been ruled by it.Do not be vexed if the word ‘man’ features prominently here and in the next piece.
One of the reasons the ratio for man is 1000:1 is that man hearkens to the voice of a woman. As it was,so it is.
The only sin of Adam as stated in Genesis 3:17 is
‘Because you have heeded the voice of your wife,
and have eaten from the tree of which I
commanded you,saying,”You shall not eat of it.”
Note that Adam was not punished for ‘listening to’ or ‘hearing’ the words of his wife,Eve,but for ‘heeding’ it,acting according to those words. For ‘heeding’,he lost his smooth and glorious relationship with God.
Do you know that so many men and women are on their way to eternal damnation because they heed the voice of a woman.
They yield to those words contrary to the will of God. Are you among them? Must you because of a woman’s voice go to hell? Do not allow any woman to lead you away from the Kingdom of God.
