Verse 8

Good Essays
He was playing to the evangelicals in the crowd. The insincerity was dripping from every pore of this man’s body language. Of course, the main writer of “The Art of the Deal”, Brian Schwartz, said that if he were to write the book all over again, he’d title it, “The Sociopath”. What? You thought Trump wrote the book? I would never “personally” say Trump didn’t write it but I hear some are sayin’… (Trump tactic in play).
Verse 26 has the Antichrist “coming to his end” as the kingdom is handed over to the saints for an everlasting kingdom; clearly a reference to the end of not only the Antichrist but of the age as the Lord returns to set up His kingdom on earth.

The horn symbolizes a position of power. Hands symbolize the administration and execution of that power. The smallness of Trump’s hands is representative of the smallness of the real man; a man who now controls the nuclear codes for the United States. The very fact he was so overly concerned about the publics’ perception of his “physical” self is evidence of the small manhood of his psychological and spiritual self. As we’ll later see, the Antichrist is not one who approaches the battlefield in a cool collected manner, but is one who lashes out in a reactionary and vengeful rage. Trump reactionary?

I have not included verse 16 to 22 here as from verse 16 onward Qohelet introduces his new topic on judgement in a typical manner by using “I saw something” signaling another reflection. Although he mentions in v. 17 “a time for every activity, a time to judge every deed”, I do not see any significant connection of these verses with verses 1 to 15. In discerning the theology of Ecclesiastes, I…
