Ecclesiastes means the Preacher, written by the son of David, a man of great wisdom & riches, a great builder, who taught knowledge and wrote proverbs clearly it was King Solomon. Written from two different viewpoints first half from the position of the unenlightened unconverted man looking at life drawing conclusions about life and behaviour. In the second half from the view of a man who has been enlightened by God, so full of Assurance and Hope and finally in last two verses from God view point. Showing Life has no meaning at all, it is completely pointless unless it is lived for God therefore seek after God. (Note No 2 noisy)
