No End. . .

Things the Bible says there is no end of:

Psalms 102:27
But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end. 

[Psalmist speaking of God's years]

Ecclesiastes 4:8
There is one alone, and there is not a second; yea, he hath neither child nor brother: yet is there no end of all his labour; neither is his eye satisfied with riches; neither saith he, For whom do I labour, and bereave my soul of good? This is also vanity, yea, it is a sore travail.

[Speaking of a lonely person having no end to his toil.  He will be ground down by his aloneness, and lack of joy because of his lonesomeness.]

Ecclesiastes 4:15-16
I considered all the living which walk under the sun, with the second child that shall stand up in his stead. There is no end of all the people, even of all that have been before them: they also that come after shall not rejoice in him. Surely this also is vanity and vexation of spirit.

[The author of Ecclesiastes, the king speaking as a king. . .the people are as an endless sea.  When the son succeeds the king, they still will not be happy.  This foolishness, and hopelessness tries the spirit]

Ecclesiastes 12:12
And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

[There is an endlessly flowing river of latest. . . newest. . . most modern ideas.  Each fashion of doctrine and philosophy supplanting, and in turn being supplanted by another.  This never ends and will wear out your body and strength to no avail]

Isaiah 9:6-7
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.  (7)  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

[Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end. . . I don’t know that I have ever read it this way before, but I read this tonight as a prophecy.  Since its inception, has Christianity ever dwindled and diminished?  Has Christianity ever nearly died out, only to be subsequently resurrected?  Or has Christianity continually for 2,000 years been on an uninterrupted path of growth?  I would love to find hard figures, but right now my gut tells me that Christianity has been ever growing. . . of the increase of His empire. . . of His kingdom there shall be no end. . .]

Luke 1:30-33
And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.  (31)  And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.  (32)  He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:  (33)  And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

[and of His kingdom there shall be no end. . . the annunciation to Mary, of her carrying the Savior of the World. . . and of His kingdom there shall be no end. . .]

Thank you my God. . .
Thank you my Lord. . .
