Michael Eaton
“The fourteen couplets of 3:2–8 cover
the whole range of human activity.
Over it all the Preacher sees God in
complete control. It is a warrant at the
same time for both humility and
confidence.”
Second Point
God has sown
Eternity into the
Heart of all
People
Forever and
Eternity
Ecclesiastes
3:9-15
The “Sunny” Perspective: verses 9-15
• God has made everything beautiful in
His time.
• God has put eternity in our hearts.
• Whatever God does endures forever.
• Work and its rewards are God’s gift.
The “Under the Sun” Perspective: 3:9-15
• What gain has the worker for his toil?
• That which is already has been.
• That which is to be already has been.
• God seeks what has been driven
away (God ensures the cycles will
repeat)
Third Point
Man is more than the
“Human Animal”. God
has given us both
Breath and Spirit.
Ecclesiastes
3:16-22
Breath and
Spirit
The “Under the Sun” Perspective: 3:16-22
• In the places of justice and righteousness
there is wickedness.
• Humans are beasts – both die!
• Humans have no advantage over animals
– they go to “one place” (The Grave.)
• All are dust and return to dust.
The “Sunny” Perspective: verses 16-22
• God will judge the righteous and the
wicked.
• Perhaps the spirit of the children of
man goes upward.
The Sunny Perspective is so much
clearer in the New Testament
• A time for a Savior in the “fullness of time”
(Galatians 4:4-5)
• The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of
God is at hand. (Mk. 1:14-15)
• John reports that “no one laid hands on
him, because his hour had not yet come”
(John 7:30)
God’s Timetable is Crystal Clear
Concerning Jesus’ Passion
•Now before the Feast of the
Passover, when Jesus knew
that his hour had come to
depart out of this world to the
Father (John 13:1)
God’s Timetable is Crystal Clear
Concerning Jesus’ Passion
• He said, “Go into the city to a
certain man and say to him, ‘The
Teacher says, My time is at hand. I
will keep the Passover at your
house with my disciples.’”
(Mt. 26:18)
God’s Timetable is Crystal Clear
Concerning Jesus’ Passion
• For while we were still weak, at the
right time Christ died for the
ungodly. (Romans 5:6)
3 Takeaway Points
1.Viewing Time from an “under
the sun” perspective leads to a
dark view of God. God is seen
as detached and capricious.
3 Takeaway Points
2. Viewing Time from God’s
perspective, we begin to see
His hand, even in the messy
and tragic events of life.
3 Takeaway Points
3. Viewing time from the
perspective of the cross
enables us to see that all
history is His Story of love and
redemption.

  • 7. Michael Eaton “The fourteen couplets of 3:2–8 cover the whole range of human activity. Over it all the Preacher sees God in complete control. It is a warrant at the same time for both humility and confidence.”
  • 8. Second Point God has sown Eternity into the Heart of all People Forever and Eternity Ecclesiastes 3:9-15
  • 9. The “Sunny” Perspective: verses 9-15 • God has made everything beautiful in His time. • God has put eternity in our hearts. • Whatever God does endures forever. • Work and its rewards are God’s gift.
  • 10. The “Under the Sun” Perspective: 3:9-15 • What gain has the worker for his toil? • That which is already has been. • That which is to be already has been. • God seeks what has been driven away (God ensures the cycles will repeat)
  • 11. Third Point Man is more than the “Human Animal”. God has given us both Breath and Spirit. Ecclesiastes 3:16-22 Breath and Spirit
  • 12. The “Under the Sun” Perspective: 3:16-22 • In the places of justice and righteousness there is wickedness. • Humans are beasts – both die! • Humans have no advantage over animals – they go to “one place” (The Grave.) • All are dust and return to dust.
  • 13. The “Sunny” Perspective: verses 16-22 • God will judge the righteous and the wicked. • Perhaps the spirit of the children of man goes upward.
  • 14. The Sunny Perspective is so much clearer in the New Testament • A time for a Savior in the “fullness of time” (Galatians 4:4-5) • The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. (Mk. 1:14-15) • John reports that “no one laid hands on him, because his hour had not yet come” (John 7:30)
  • 15. God’s Timetable is Crystal Clear Concerning Jesus’ Passion •Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father (John 13:1)
  • 16. God’s Timetable is Crystal Clear Concerning Jesus’ Passion • He said, “Go into the city to a certain man and say to him, ‘The Teacher says, My time is at hand. I will keep the Passover at your house with my disciples.’” (Mt. 26:18)
  • 17. God’s Timetable is Crystal Clear Concerning Jesus’ Passion • For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. (Romans 5:6)
  • 18. 3 Takeaway Points 1.Viewing Time from an “under the sun” perspective leads to a dark view of God. God is seen as detached and capricious.
  • 19. 3 Takeaway Points 2. Viewing Time from God’s perspective, we begin to see His hand, even in the messy and tragic events of life.
  • 20. 3 Takeaway Points 3. Viewing time from the perspective of the cross enables us to see that all history is His Story of love and redemption.
