[QTVOTD] No life for the unrighteous beyond the grave…

“Though a sinner does evil a hundred times and his days [seemingly] are prolonged [in his wickedness], yet surely I know that it will be well with those who [reverently] fear God, who revere and worship Him, realizing His continual presence. But it will not be well with the wicked, neither will he prolong his days like a shadow, because he does not [reverently] fear and worship God.” Ecclesiastes 8:12-13 ->me: Here is a time where the Preacher says something other than ‘I saw’ or ‘I have seen’…he says “I know”. This is a statement of confident faith. Those who fear God will be well in the end. These are the people who revere the name of God, worship Him, and they realize and are confident in the Lord’s presence in their lives. It will not be so with the wicked. Although justice might be delayed here on earth, judgement after this life ‘under the sun’ will be swift. The unrighteous will not flourish beyond the grave.
