The Basic Truths Of Life!
Everyone that ever walked on this planet must come to terms in this life with some basic TRUTHS. These will be the basic truths that no one can argue with, if they are sane. Of course, if you believe what God says in His Own BOOK about you, then you will have no problem with accepting these basic truths.
1. The Brevity Of Life
"For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away." (James 4:14b) Our life is brief! like a vapor, or like smoke. "Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling?" (Job 7:1) He is born, and then he will die! This is certain! (The exception being Enoch and Elijah, and also, those believers in Jesus Christ who are alive when He comes for His Church.)
2. The Brevity Of Your Remembrance
You will soon be forgotten. A man is remembered only a little while, and then he is forgotten. "He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him anymore. Are not my days few? cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little, Before I go whence I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and the shadow of death; A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness." (Job 7:10 & 10:20-22)
3. The Sureness Of Trouble
Life is bale full of troubles. I have also found this very true!!! "Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not." (Job 14:1).
4. The Verity Of The White Throne Judgment
"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27). You will not miss this one unless YOU ARE HID in the CLEFT OF THE ROCK!
5. The Eternality And The Finality Of What You Do With Jesus Christ:
We will all be held accountable over this issue. It is a hard fact of life, my friend. Now will you take God's offer of eternal life ... purchased by His Son ... for all those who will put their trust in Him ... a thumbs down? You will everlastingly suffer the consequences!
6. That Men Never Learn From History
We learn from History That Men Never Learn From History! It is a heart problem! Men refuse to learn the "lessons" afforded by the light of HISTORY: the recorded historical events which occurred as fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Now, these are the basic truths with which we all must deal with one way or another!
7. What Should You Do?
"But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart:
that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved"; [Romans 10:8-13]
THE BIBLE :
Believe The BOOK!
The King James Bible
This is God's Holy WORD to you and I! Do you believe it? The A.V.1611 (or The King James Bible) is God's word PRESERVED in the English language for you and me. It came from the English Reformation. This Bible declares that: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." [2 Timothy 3:16] God's inspired word is preserved in the A.V.1611. The word "preserved" means maintained inspiration. "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in the furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever." [Psalm 12:6-7] “PRESERVE.” .
Home In The Hills:
[Or New Jerusalem]
Everybody is going home someday. Everybody is going to their LONG HOME. When you die, you are going to go to your “long home” whether, it be in “Heaven” or in “Hell”. Do you realize that truth? “Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets:” [Ecclesiastes 12:5].

A supernatural BOOK is written by a supernatural Author.
The BIBLE is this BOOK!!!
Its Author is God. And in the English language, it is the King James Bible!
Dear Friend,It is by the divine power of God through faith that we become the partakers of the divine nature.
We became partakers the moment we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the Sons of God, even to them that believe on his name" [John 1:12].
Faith is first, and it is by the grace of God that we get saved from the wrath of God, which is to come. "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God" [Ephesians 2:8].
This faith will be the type of faith where we put our whole trust in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. "In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise" [Ephesians 1:13].
At the moment we trusted Jesus Christ "through faith unto salvation" [1 Peter 1:5], God "sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts" [Galatians 4:6] to dwell and we "were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise."
This is the new birth termed "born again" in John 3. There is more. This "divine power of God" has made us "to drink into one Spirit." It occurred the instant you got saved by the "so great salvation" of Hebrews 2:3. It is connected to the event that every believer experiences, that is, being "baptized into one body" [1 Corinthians 12:13]. This body is the "spiritual house" of 1 Peter 2:5.
All this happened through faith! Read, Hebrews chapter 11. "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Vs.1) "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." (Vs.6) But if you have trusted Jesus Christ through faith you must not stop here. You must grow in grace. "But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."
In order to grow, you must add to your faith. In 2 Peter 1:5-7, it is revealed by the Holy Spirit seven things "that pertain unto life and godliness" that every Christian is to add to their faith. We are first, to add virtue; second, to add knowledge; third, to add temperance; fourth, to add patience; fifth, to add godliness; sixth, to add brotherly kindness; and seventh, to add charity. Now is that not something? We are told by the apostle through the Spirit of God to add seven things to our faith.
Seven in the Bible is the number of completion. Heaven and earth was made in six days and God ceased from His work on the seventh day. There are seven days in a week. There are seven weeks before the Feast of Pentecost, and there are seven months before the Feast of Tabernacles and Day of Atonement.
In the Book of Revelation, there are seven churches, seven bowls, seven vials, seven trumpets, seven candlesticks and seven spirits. God has divided time into seven dispensations in the Bible. Seven is the number of completion in the Bible. The seventh thing to be added to the Christian's faith is charity. "And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness." [Colossians 3:14].
Go to: The Paradox
Psalm 12 ... is the promise to us!
Purified seven times ... God's word is kept in spite of men!
Help, Lord; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from
among the children of men.
They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak. [Verse 2]
The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things: [Verse 3]
Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us? [Verse 4]
For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. [Verse 5]
The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. [Verse 6]
Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. [Verse 7]
The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted. [Verse 8]
