Satisfaction of Satisfactions

“He (God) has made all things beautiful in its time. He has also planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that man cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11 Amplified)

“Vanity, vanity says the preacher all is vanity” (Ecclesiastes 1:2); this was my consideration before I came to the local church. Now I can testify that I have Christ—the Reality of realities. King Solomon had a view of what was under the sun but through the ministry of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee God has given me a view beyond Solomon’s. God has placed in me a divine sense of a purpose and, by revealing His eternal purpose to me, the ability to find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. “And to enlighten all that they may see what the economy of the mystery is, which throughout the ages has been hidden in God, who created all things.” (Ephesians 3:9, Recovery Version)

Vanity of vanities is man when his human life is apart from God; Reality of realities is Christ and the church as the goal of my existence. What God has done was a mystery hidden until Paul the Apostle unveiled God’s eternal purpose in his epistles. The mystery of the universe is God; the mystery of God is Christ and the mystery of Christ is the church. (Colossians 2:2; Ephesians 3:4-6)

My testimony is now I have Satisfaction of satisfactions.

How do you explain to a man who is deaf the beauty of music or describe the color blue to a man who has never seen; what language could you use to convey the fragrance of a rose and what kind of feeling is there between a man and his bride? Much of what I want to say to you is in this way; I have been kissed with the kisses of His mouth and I am satisfied. (Song of Songs 1:2) “The Spirit and the bride say, Come! And let him who hears say, Come! And let him who is thirsty come; let him who wills take the water of life freely.” (Revelation 22:17)
