To Everything There is a Season
The Excellence in God's Works
1To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
New International Version
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
New American Standard Bible
There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven--
Contemporary English Version
Everything on earth has its own time and its own season.
Good News Translation
Everything that happens in this world happens at the time God chooses.
For everything there is an appointed time, and an appropriate time for every activity on earth:
GOD'S WORD® Translation
Everything has its own time, and there is a specific time for every activity under heaven:
All things have their season, and in their times all things pass under heaven.
Verses 1-22. - Section 4. In confirmation of the truth that man's happiness depends upon the will of God, Koheleth proceeds to show how Providence arranges even the minutest concerns; that man can alter nothing, must make the best of things as they are, bear with anomalies, bounding his desires by this present life. Verses 1-8. - The providence of God disposes and arranges every detail of man's life.
In human affairs Providence arranges the moment when everything shall happen, the duration of its operation, and the time appropriate thereto. The view of the writer takes in the whole circumstances of men's life from its commencement to its close. But the thought is not, as some have opined, that there is naught but uncertainty, fluctuation, and imperfection in human affairs, nor, as Plumptre conceives, "It is wisdom to do the right thing at the right time
And this is Calvin Tan's expanded Translations
There is a time for every thing in Life. Seasonal, Situatonal, Structural & Sensational
Except for Birth & Death which are two events not under our control - rest of the things depand on how we use WISDOM TO DO THE RIGHT THING AT THE RIGHT TIME
Since God made the Eartn to be seasonal
Genesis8: 22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
ALL COMPANIES WILL RISE OR FALL IN BUSINESS DEPENDING ON THE SEASONS
Like a Ski Resort
Its business is at its Best During Winter. So is selling Christmas Greeting Cards. No body buy Christmas Cards in January or June. They only start buying near December 25th every year
In our youth we play according to the SEASONS
A time to fly Kite when North-east Monsoon wind is strong
There was a little provision shop near my home
To make Kites we must buy
Papers for Kite making
Strings (lots of it)
After Kites season over the little shop will only stock next hot items like
Marbles (marbles season)
Tops (Tops spinning time)
Others fads of the Times.
He adapts his business wisely
And these he cannot
Playing hide & seek
So he waits out the time by selling normal neccessities until the SEASONS return
Of course today Children no longer play these
THESE ALL LONG GONE
THERE IS STRUCTURAL CHANGES
Today, selling things to make Kites, Marbles or Tops are NO LONGER POPULAR
CHILDREN HAVE ALL MIGRATED TO PLAY COMPUTER GAMES!!
So New Structural Changes will usher in New Businesses
Other STRUCTURAL CHANGES ARE
THE BUILDING OF NORTH SOUTH HIGHWAY
IT USED TO TAKE 14 HOURS BY BUS FROM PENANG TO SINGAPORE IN YEAR 1979
PASSING THRU TOWNS LIKE TAIPING IN THE NORTH & AYER ITAM IN THE SOUTH
NOW NO MORE. THE NS HIGHWAY BYPASSED THEM
STRUCTURAL CHANGES HAVE MADE THESE TOWNS UNIMPORTANT
AS TIME IS SHORTENED PENANG, KL & SPORE ROSE TO EVEN HIGHER PROMINANCE
THEN COMES COVID 19!
WHAT IS THIS?
THIS IS A SITUATIONAL EVENT
IT CHANGES MANY THINGS
SHOPPING MALLS ARE AVOIDED
AIR TRAVEL COLLAPSED
TOURISM INDUSTRY EVAPORATES
RESTAURANTS HALF EMPTY
THOUSANDS OF BUSINESSES GOING BANKRUPT
BUT AMONG THE PANDEMIC AROSE NEW DEMAND
SALES OF MEDICAL GLOVES, FACE MASKS, HAND SANITIZERS WILL BE EXPLOSIVE
AS PEOPLE STAY HOME ONLY MEANS OF COMMUNICATION IS THRU ONLINE SPACE
SO ONLINE TECH RELATED COMPANIES WILL DO WELL
MANY CANNOT GO OUT (OR DARE NOT GO OUT)
SO BUYING OFFLINE SHIFTS TO ONLINE * ECOMMERCE PROSPERS
AS PEOPLE STAY HOME THEY LOOK TO EARN EXTRA INCOME. SO THEY GO INVESTING IN SHARES ONLINE
MANY ARE NEWBIES AND WILL GET SLAUGHTERED BY SYNDICATES
THE RISE OF THE SENSATIONAL
DANGER OF SENSATIONAL THEME STOCKS DRUMMED UP BY DISHONEST COMPANY LEADERS IN CA-HOOT WITH SYNDICATES!!
PLEASE BE WARNED & BE CAREFUL DON'T SIMPLY CHASED HYPED UP HOT STOCKS WHICH ARE FRAUDS!!
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
GO FOR SAFE, SOUND INVESTMENTS WITH SOLID FUNDAMENTALS AND REAL DEMANDS
FOR TODAY NO MENTION OF ANY PARTICULAR STOCKS
PLEASE STUDY YOURSELVES & THEN INVEST CAREFULLY

HOW A NICE DAY
