Ecclesiastes 4

So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.

Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive.

Yea, better is he than both they, which hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.

Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbour. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit.

The fool foldeth his hands together, and eateth his own flesh.

Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit.

Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun.

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.

Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?

12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

13 Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished.

14 For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor.

15 I considered all the living which walk under the sun, with the second child that shall stand up in his stead.

16 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.

  1. 1Again, I observed all the oppression that takes place under the sun. I saw the tears of the oppressed, with no one to comfort them. The oppressors have great power, and their victims are helpless.

    We all feel oppressed by the enemy. The enemy will challenge you with trials of life. God sees your anguish and tears. But we have comfort with God. He brings peace and joy to you. Cast your cares to Jesus, and all things will be taken care of. God is our comforter and peace maker.

  2. Verse 12 ERV “An enemy might be able to defeat one person, but two people can stand back-to-back to defend each other. And three people are even stronger. They are like a rope that has three parts wrapped together—it is very hard to break.” There is power in numbers, especially squared!

    Matthew 18:20 MSG “Take this most seriously: A yes on earth is yes in heaven; a no on earth is no in heaven. What you say to one another is eternal. I mean this. When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action. And when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I’ll be there.”

  3. Ecclesiastes 4
    9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

    10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

    Matthew 18:20
    For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”

    Iron sharpens Iron.

    I think of the Good Samaritan story. The traveler was alone and several past him by leaving him for dead. Yet it took just one man to stop and care for the wounded man. This became Jesus 2 . The traveler was no longer alone . Placed in the hands of care and concern the traveler became well. Two better than one . The Good Samaritan now has caused the Traveler to have another in his life to help him . We seemingly at least I have always looked at the scripture two are better than one as a marriage scripture which good respect how wonderful. Yet as we go deeper beyond the physical to a “ Deeper Dimension “ we can take a look at the story of The Good Samaritan. How many lonely people who are in need of just someone to make a difference in their life. Two acquaint them with Jesus Christ . Many have fallen . What about your brother or sister in the Lord ? There are so many opportunities to reach and apply this scripture. We must reach and remain in unity . Two can do more than one. If one falls the other is there to lift him up . Keep reaching . Keep seeking and keep your hand extended to help lift someone up. This is truly Jesus 2 .

    A kids Sunday School song
    We roll the old chariot along …,

    If a sinners in the road we will stop and pick him up
    If my brother is in the road we will stop and pick him up
    If my sister is in the road we will stop and pick her up

    Yes 2 is better than 1 !

    Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 ESV

    Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

  4. 9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
    10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

    If we all work together, the more successful we will be. Let’s encourage each other today. Serve with each other today. And see together, that the work of His Kingdom is done!

  5. 1. So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.

    John 14:
    16. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

    17. Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

    18. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

  6. 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.

    9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

    10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

    11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?

    12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

  7. “And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”
    ‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭4:12‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Unity in the body of Jesus Christ, is the VICTORY we shall have over the enemy!!!

  8. 9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
    10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.
    11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?
    12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

    I was once talking to a guy about coming to church and he was adamant that it was the will of God for him to be alone, to walk the Christian Life without being a part of a church body. I have since thought about what he said multiple times and I cannot find one place in the Bible that supports that idea. You cannot find it anywhere in the word of God that man is supposed to walk alone, even Jesus Christ himself did not go through life without people with him. There are seasons when it needs to be a one-on-one encounter just for God to feel the way at your flesh but he never separates the body from itself. It is the complete perfect will of God to walk together, in unity of mind and Spirit. We are all working organisms to create one representation of the body of Christ

  9. Ecclesiastes 4: 9-10-12 Two are better than one because they have a good reward for their labour.
    [10] For if they fall; the one will lift up his fellow; but we to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.
    12] And if one prevail against him, two shall stand withstand him, and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
    I thank God for all my church family as we encourage one another as we lift up one another, as we pray for one another.
    As we stand for one mind , one faith , one baptism
    As we stand in Unity working to together in one believe.
    For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do his good pleasure.
    If God be before us than who can be against us!
    Lord we need more of you.

  10. 9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

    10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

    There is power in numbers. There is strength in numbers. I’m so grateful that any time I’m going through something I can reach out and I have a God fearing person to speak Life and prayer over me. It nourishes the soul!

  11. 4:13 better is a poor and a wise child
    Than an old and foolish king, who will no
    Not be admonished.
    —/
    It’s a sad thing to choose to not want to be
    Admonished just because we think we don’t need
    It anymore. And also to think that just because
    Someone has reached a certain age
    Don’t want, and think they don’t need it.

    I don’t ever want to get to that point
    Or have that mind set.
    🙏 that I may always be open minded
    And humble to acknowledge that I
    Will need instruction, and to be thought
    No matter what age I reach.
    That I may FIRST know God more and more ….
    Good is good.

  12. 9 NKJV “Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor.

    12 NKJV Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

    Matthew 18:20 NKJV “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.””
    ‭‭

  13. 12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

    The verse speaks to the power of unity. There will be great power for those that bind together in unity. The enemy can not defeat any body of believers that have the same vision and the same purpose. They can not be conquered. The enemy will try to divide be inputting doubt and fear to cause people to doubt there purpose of God and they will be influenced if they allow the enemy to overcome, entice them, or even spread gossip with in the group itself.

    We have to be bold in this day and hour and we have to be ready for any trick that will cause division. I can only say to the enemy, if God be for us then who can be against us.

    I am also reminded of my battle cry in Micah 7:8

    Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.

    This should be the attitude of the church. We are going to fall because of the flesh but the spirit will keep us strong in mind, heart, and soul. Live Jesus to give Jesus.

  14. LIVE – GIVE JESUS2
    RELATIONSHIP

    9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
    10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.
    11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?
    12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

    The Preacher here lays out the value, importance and power of RELATIONSHIP. This passage is why isolation is so important to the devil. RELATIONSHIP means there is someone to help me up when I fall or feel down. RELATIONSHIP means there is someone to keep the FIRE burning with. But most importantly, RELATIONSHIP keeps me VICTORIOUS.

    I thank JESUS for each of you today. I am stronger because each of you are in my life. I am passionate because each of you are in my life. I am safer because each of you are in my life.

    I NEED each of you in my life.

    Blessings to all.

  15. Bueno es saber que es mejor 2 que 1 por que unidos todo lo pueden sin embargo uno solo no tiene apoyo gracias senor por Ser mi apoyo.

  16. Ecclesiastes 4

    1 So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.

    Thank you Jesus for you are the comforter for us. With you we have the power to fight with against oppression.

  17. iLove the Kingom of Jesus2

    Ecc 4:12 A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.

    I saw this principal on the nature channel one day. There was full grown lion who was being attacked by about 30 hyena. This feller would bite one of the hyena, but as he would bite him, another would sneak up from behind and bite the lion in the back of its legs. I kept thinking, “Why doesn’t that lion just really rip those hyenas”, but then I realized that as soon as the lion grabbed one all the others jumped and it was overwhelming the lion. Well, all the sudden another lion shows up on the scene and the two lions stand back to back. It took less than 30 seconds for the two lions together to take control of the situation. Two lions against 30 hyena was no problem because they could watch each others back. The same is true with us. We need each other in the kingdom.

  18. 12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

    Binding together we are much stronger than standing alone. When the enemy comes against us, we need to have one another’s best interest in our hearts and be willing to stand with and go to battle for one another.

  19. We all need someone to help us up, an encourager. See Ecclesiates 3:10. Many of us are not willing to listen without trying to find a quick resolution. Anything to move on. My friends, I have a friend who needed me just to listen. Not to give a snappy answer. Just listen. We can others up. Before we rush to give counsel just stop, hold a listening ear to your friend. They will receive what they need. Just listen and learn.
    A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
    Proverbs 1:5 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/pro.1.5.KJV

  20. And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

    Binding together we are much stronger than standing alone with god by your side you will win.

  21. 12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

    When we are united and in one accord we are powerful together. When the enemy tries to come against us. It comes across with the resistance of church who is standing together as a threefold cord that cannot be broken easily. So when the trials uprise in our life unity is the key to will resist the attacks. More than ever we the church must stand in threefold cord for what is to come.

  22. The Advantages of Companionship

    7 I observed yet another example of something meaningless under the sun. 8 This is the case of a man who is all alone, without a child or a brother, yet who works hard to gain as much wealth as he can. But then he asks himself, “Who am I working for? Why am I giving up so much pleasure now?” It is all so meaningless and depressing.

    9 Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. 11 Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? 12 A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken

    It is so important to build a network of friends that are there for you to lift you when you fall, pray for you when are in need and love you at all times. True friends are hard to find, and when you do find them, do all that you can to protect that relationship. Pray for your friends like you want them to pray for you. Speak like and encouragement to them. The best thing we can do for our friends is encouragement to grow in the Lord!

  23. 2-3″So I congratulated the dead who are already dead instead of the living who are still alive. But luckier than the dead or the living is the person who has never even been, who has never seen the bad business that takes place on this earth.” MSG

    What is the difference between perceptive and reality? For most their perspective is their reality. Even if there is one who lives the same life, and goes through each circumstance with them their perspective of each event causes their reality to be different.

    It can be easy as leaders to loose the REALITY that others PERSPECTIVES are “their reality”. Though we can think it is wrong or distorted, it will only be through love, prayer and Jesus that their perspective can be changed.

    The verses above can very well be said for someone’s reality today. I believe a good leader, is a leader who can attempt to understand each persons perspective and share the TRUTH to them through their reality.

    Reality regardless of perspective: Jesus loves YOU.
    Reality regardless of perspective: You must be born again by Baptism in Jesus Name
    Reality regardless of perspective: You must receive the Holy Ghost

  24. “Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished.”
    ‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭4:13‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Better to be a poor wise child because they will accept correction. An old foolish king thinks he has no one that can correct him. No correction makes one very foolish. Jesus help us all to keep our spirits as that of a child who can be corrected and never feel that we have grown above a word of discipline.

  25. “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”
    ‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭4:9-12‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Doing things alone will be difficult. When we have a friends to help us out it makes it so much easier. Especially when the help is in agreement with you. With unity anything can be accomplished!

  26. “For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.”
    ‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭4:10‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    I love friendship! I love learning what it means to be a friend! We can’t do this alone and and our friends will encourage us, correct us, and make intercession for us. They’ll laugh with you, cry with you, and worship with you. I thank God for my friends and pray I can be a great friend to others

  27. “Two are better than one because they have a more satisfying return for their labor; for if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and does not have another to lift him up. Again, if two lie down together, then they keep warm; but how can one be warm alone? And though one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
    ‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭4:9-12‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    These four verses show us the great value of human relationships, that two are better than one. Living and working together is a great advantage to living and working alone, and adds these four things to life:

    · Productivity (they have a good reward for their labor).

    · Help in need (If they fall, one will lift up his companion).

    · Comfort in life (they will keep warm).

    · Safety and security (two can withstand).

    Church We need each other.

  28. Each of these verses demonstrate how we are better together!

    – Better Success – 9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

    – Help when in need – 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

    – Comfort – 11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?

    – Stronger – 12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

    “I need you, you need me
    We’re all a part of God’s body
    Stand with me, agree with me

    We’re all a part of God’s body
    It is his will, that every need be supplied
    You are important to me, I need you to survive
    You are important to me, I need you to survive

    I pray for you, you pray for me
    I love you, I need you to survive
    I won’t harm you with words from my mouth
    I love you, I need you to survive”
    // I need you to survive // Hezekiah Walker

  29. 9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

    10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

    11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?

    12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

    It is better to work in unity than to reject others to help bear the load. Unified sprite will take you further than solitary mindframe!

  30. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

    11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?

    12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

    The Message

    It’s better to have a partner than go it alone.
    Share the work, share the wealth.
    And if one falls down, the other helps,
    But if there’s no one to help, tough!

    Two in a bed warm each other.
    Alone, you shiver all night.

    By yourself you’re unprotected.
    With a friend you can face the worst.
    Can you round up a third?
    A three-stranded rope isn’t easily snapped.

    huh. The Three Muskateers. Now I get it.

  31. Ecclesiastes 4:9
    Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.

    We are all individuals with our own God-given tasks and responsibilities, but we are one Body that is called to live and work in partnership with one another, which is much more productive and profitable than toiling alone. Shared successes and shared sorrows not only give greater encouragement and is edifying, it is how we are called to live in this world by our heavenly Father. May we work together for the furtherance of the gospel and work the works of God in the unity of the Spirit, while it is still day.

    Heavenly Father, thank You for this simple truth that impacts our lives that two are better than one and for the privilege we have, as the Body of Christ, to support and encourage one another in the work that You have given us to do. Give me grace and wisdom to hold the things of this world lightly and to consider the needs of others before my own. Unite Your people together in the bond of peace and may we be a living testimony to the goodness and grace of God and work together for the furtherance of the gospel. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.

  32. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NLT)
    9) Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.
    10) If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.
    11) Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone?
    12) A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.

    “Two People Are Better Off Than One” because…
    Two people can get more done than one person alone.
    Two people can support each other and help each other.
    When one person is being attacked, two people can stand back-to-back and conquer the attacker.
    BUT a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. There is me and you, but who is the third strand in the braided cord? I think it should be JESUS.
    Me + You + JESUS = VICTORY!!

  33. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

    Relationships is very crucial especially when you’re facing something that you can’t control. The most important relationship is with God, although you may sometimes feel like you have no one just remember god will always be there waiting for you to ask for help.

  34. 2 Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive.
    3 Yea, better is he than both they, which hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.

    Even in the time this scripture was written, the evil in the world was growing worse. The closer we come to the Lord’s return, the more wickedness will abound.

  35. “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.”

    God created Adam and then Eve. He knew two people were better than one. When we need help beside God helping us, we have loved ones to support us when needed. I thank you Jesus for that!

  36. “that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—”
    ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭4:14-15‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
    Being firmed and solid in understanding in true apostolic Gospel is so important.

    Older generations should be burdened to teach and preach the younger generation about The God Ordained Gospel of Jesus Christ. That’s how we become strong. Don’t be easily persuaded by false gospels that sound good. Love what is true and what is right.

  37. 13 Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished.
    14 For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor.
    15 I considered all the living which walk under the sun, with the second child that shall stand up in his stead.

    It’s too easy to get caught up in the entertaining the flesh, and neglecting the spirit. We have to keep kingdom minded that we not vainly serve ourselves…

  38. 9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
    10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up

    We are stronger together.
    When we work together we build off each other. We grow in sprite when we speak of his goodness.
    Remember to always pray for one another

  39. 12 A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.
    Ecclesiastes 4:12 NLT

    When we are in our lowest, in our trials and battles it is never easy to go through it alone. We go through many times where we wanna give up, but as the children of the Lord, God is standing in our corner fighting for us giving us his strength. We must realize we are not alone, and that we have friends and family the Lord has blessed us with to go through everything with. As his children let us go comfort those hurting and lost in this world, show them how to stand tall and strong and guide them to the Lord where the light shines and where they can overcome there battles.

  40. 1 So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.

    Praise be the Lord our God Jesus. For he did not leave us alone but has sent to us the comforter and has promised to be with us even till the end of the world.

  41. “Two are better than one because they have a more satisfying return for their labor; for if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and does not have another to lift him up.”
    ‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭4:9-10‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    You do not have to go through this walk alone. There is power when you bind together than when you are alone. We are each other’s keeper. When we see our brother or sister struggling we are suppose to help them and life them up. There is power in numbers.

  42. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

    I think this chapter was trying to tell us that God will always be there! In our ups and downs and when we are feeling not the greatest he is still there. Be will always be there. It hurts to see people pull away from God, cause one day he will come and ask why did you do that my child? We have to make sure we are being guided and lead in the right path. We have to think about stuff before we do them just to make sure we are doing the right thing! Just know that Jesus loves you and so do I!❤️

  43. 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.

    9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

    The riches here on earth will never satisfy our flesh, we crave more and more, God made it that way, He knows that the riches in heaven are so much greater than what’s on earth, He wants to see us labour for it, we can’t just be handed the riches of heaven.

  44. I learned that it’s better to have a poor and wise child then a old and foolish king because the king will not last in his riches and the poor will become rich no matter if it’s in money form

  45. 12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

    If the math of this is true, then how powerful is a family in unity? How powerful is a church in unity ? You can feel this revival just waiting to unhitch but it hinges upon the unity of the people. If we could put down our agendas and differences, and unify like never before, we would see revival like never before.

  46. 9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

    10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

    It’s important to have good friends surround you. They will help keep you lifted when you’re falling down. Good friends won’t help you hide sin, but they will expose it and pray with you to fight it. Friends that are there for you in the tough times show a real strong connection. They are there to help you and not harm you.

  47. 13 Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished.

    14 For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor.

    15 I considered all the living which walk under the sun, with the second child that shall stand up in his stead.

    There is nothing new in this world that could satisfy our needs, everything here is nothing compared to what GOD has in store for us.

  48. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

    Thankful for the GODLY brothers and sisters in my life!!! GOD never fails and just because we fail doesn’t mean that GOD isn’t The Almighty One!!! GOD IS FAITHFUL AND JUST!!!

  49. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

    I have been there where I fell and had no one to help me up, and it is rough out there all alone, I wasnt all alone I know but it felt like it. I am so glad God has brought me to Fort Worth, to find a church that has people that encourage each other to live for God. Thank you Jesus for drawing me back to you!

  50. Ecclesiastes 4:9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth ; for he hath not another to help him up.

    Thank God for POFW ministries, always working in the Kingdom together not alone🙏🏼🙌🏼

  51. “For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up.”
    ‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭4:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    Get close to those that love serving the Lord with all their heart, mind, and soul and do obey the law of God’s commandments. Don’t be deceived for there many anti-christ that want you to give up but greater is He that is living in you than in the world. Build a relationship with God and with your brothers and sisters that love Jesus and let help one another for we are stronger when we are together in Unity.

  52. 9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

    10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

    11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?

    12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

    These verses reminds me that it matters who you marry. There will be times when you are going to be weak and want to give it all up. You will feel attacked but when you and your spouse are serving the Lord you will comfort one another, strengthen one another, lead one another, cry together, give each other courage, etc. It matters that you marry someone that fears God because they will encourage you spiritually. They will pray for you, fight for you, encourage you in His Word, teach you, etc.

    Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
    2 Corinthians 6:14

    Marry someone who LOVES JESUS because they will know how to love you!!!

  53. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

    If there an accident on the job, we can help our coworkers. But Pity the man who falls off the ladder when he is alone. There is no one around to call for help.

    A.L.M.A.S.

  54. “This is the case of a man who is all alone, without a child or a brother, yet who works hard to gain as much wealth as he can. But then he asks himself, “Who am I working for? Why am I giving up so much pleasure now?” It is all so meaningless and depressing.”
    ‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭4:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    If Gods brought you out time and time again you shouldn’t run out of things to thank him for.
    Psalms 107:22
    “And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭107:22‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    Sacrifice is something that cost so a sacrifice of thanksgiving isn’t just an overflow of the extra

    If true thanksgiving is Sacrifice then what is it we’re sacrificing
    We Sacrifice our complaints- give thanks that he has given you the strength to endure

    We sacrifice our fears we don’t have to fear for tomorrow. Jesus knows everything that you are already in need of. He feeds the fowls of the air and every other living creature so why be afraid that he won’t provide.

    We sacrifice our wants- wealth, security and many other things we could come up with that are beneficial but the desires for these things can easily outweigh and distract us from what God has called us to be. We are called to follow so we can lead. When we set our hearts on something we’re saying Gods not enough. It’s really us losing sight of who He really is and how much we really need him
    How could we have thankful hearts when we’re dwelling on the things we don’t have.

    Guys everyday we’re surrounded by the evidence of his grace and led by the promise that was made and fulfilled by Jesus. That his spirit shall pour out on all flesh.

  55. 9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
    10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

    Did anyone else not realize that this was scripture, “. . . Two are better than one;”. Proven scripturally! Mama and Grandma were always right and few teachers that I can remember.
