Excerpts from "The Jubilee"

Psalm 90:1 says, "O Lord, You have been our dwelling place / In all generations." This declaration is the proclamation of the jubilee,... Verse 10..."The days of our years are in sum seventy years, / Or, if because of strength, eighty years; / But their pride is labor and sorrow, / For it is soon gone, and we fly away."

...The Bible says that the real condition of human life is only "labor and sorrow... it is soon gone, and we fly away." Ecclesiastes 1:2 says, "Vanity of vanities; all is vanity." In Hebrew, vanity of vanities means emptiness of emptiness. Solomon's words fully agreed with the words of Moses. Moses said, "It is soon gone, and we fly away," whereas Solomon said, "All is vanity and a chasing after wind" (v. 14).

...Hymns, #720... Verse 1 and the chorus say,
God hath not promised skies always blue,
Flower-strewn pathways all our lives through;
God hath not promised sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.

But God hath promised strength for the day,
Rest for the labor, light for the way,
Grace for the trials, help from above,
Unfailing sympathy, undying love.

...What is crucial is that the inward, primary factor of our human life is right.... This primary factor is nothing other than God Himself. We must let God Himself be the primary factor within us. Only then will we know how to deal with our children, how to honor our parents, how to study, and how to work. If this primary factor directs us within, everything will simply be a duty to us, not a burden or hardship. However, if we are not directed by this primary factor, everything will become a weight and a suffering. In the end, we will become captives and even sell ourselves as slaves.

For us to live on earth today, we need to have a car for transportation and a house for lodging. We need clothing, food, and marriage. All these are necessities. Children should study diligently, be educated, finish college, and work hard. However, all these are just the duties of our human life; they should not become an encumbrance or a bondage to enslave us. However, if we do not have God as our primary factor within, we cannot avoid being under the bondage of these persons, things, and matters.... As we are fulfilling our duty, we must have the Lord within.

The Lord came that He might save us and dispense Himself into us. If our heart is set on anything other than the Lord, that thing, whether good or bad, becomes a suffering to us. If our heart is set on our children, husband, or wife, the result is suffering. If our heart is set on our education, business, house, or land, the outcome is misery. If our heart is set on any person, thing, or matter other than the Lord, the end is wretchedness.... we have the Lord, He saves us from all these sufferings. If we take the Lord as our center, we can enjoy Him as our life of jubilee.

Note: Amen. Now I understand why I suffered in my work, it's because I'm enslaved by it. I need the Lord as the primary factor in my work. Work is just a duty, I will not and should not be enslaved by Pharaoh. Then, even the worst colleague is not a problem at all because the Lord sets me free from this slavery. Thank You, Lord.
