Before I get to the main verse, “Do not be overly righteous, and do not make yourself too wise. Why should you destroy yourself,” we have to recognize and understand the state that Solomon was in and the lens through which he was saying these things in Ecclesiastes.
Jesus compares all believers in Him as being salt. What does salt do? It preserves, seasons the meat to give it flavor, and heals.
Daniel was a righteous man who feared God by keeping His commands (Daniel 1:8). God blessed Daniel above all of the king’s officials, so much so that they wanted to destroy him out of jealousy. Their jealousy was brought about by Satan to manipulate them, as these officials could influence the king with trickery, to have him destroy Daniel.
If you believe in a Mid-Trib or Post-Trib, indirectly, you are saying that you know the day or hour. Only the Pre-Trib theology does one not know the day or hour, which fits in perfectly with what the Scripture teaches about the coming of the Lord because it could happen at any moment.
o not assume that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn
‘a man against his father,

a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
36 A man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’ 37 Anyone who loves his father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me -Matthew 10:34-37 BSB
22 Then the LORD said to Moses, 23 “Tell Aaron and his sons: This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them: 24 ‘May the LORD bless you and keep you; 25 may the LORD cause His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; 26 may the LORD lift up His countenance toward you and give you peace.’ 27 So they shall put My name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.” -Numbers 6:22-27 BSB
The word “senseless” in Greek means to be unintelligent due to a lack of spiritual wisdom. That type of person without spiritual wisdom will be driven in any direction that Satan decides to place him in. Some people who at one time claimed to follow Jesus but then apostatized and are now used by the enemy to attack the God of Scripture whom they claim doesn’t exist. Satan will only use to his full capacity, in the kingdom of darkness, the senseless.
