History repeating itself-1

1 Corinthians 10:11 “These are all warning markers–DANGER!–in our history books, written down so that we don’t repeat their mistakes. Our positions in the story are parallel–they at the beginning, we at the end–and we are just as capable of messing it up as they were.” (MSG)
Each time I had cause to study the history of a man, group of people, country or kingdoms, I can’t but wonder at how some of those occurrences kept repeating themselves even in our days.
Many times I wonder why men will simply not learn. Our focal scripture says, these things are “written down so that we don’t repeat their mistakes.” But we keep repeating them over and over.
God’s idea for documenting history is for two main reasons:
1. To learn about the mistakes of another in order to avoid repeating same
2. To learn from the positive histories and use them to reproduce it’s kind.
We can have negative and positive repetitions of history and we need to know how to respond in each case.
But, the bottom line is, if we don’t learn from history, we are really not learning.
The world is a cycle and as the saying goes, what goes round comes round. Very true but the question is when it comes round, how do you handle it?
Let’s see one or two examples from scriptures.
Before then, hear this:
Ecclesiastes 1:5 “The sun rises and the sun sets, then hurries around to rise again.”
Ecclesiastes 1:6 “The wind blows south, and then turns north. Around and around it goes, blowing in circles.”
Ecclesiastes 1:9 “History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new.” (NLT)
King Solomon shows us a classic example of history repeating itself, the sun rising and setting, the movement of the wind…To be continued
