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.” .

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].

Faith Cometh By Hearing

“For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.” [Hebrews 4:2]
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 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.”[Hebrews 11:1,6]
With these declarations from the OLD BLACK BOOK, then it is for us to BELIEVE God at his word. We need to … accept as little children … that God has inspired not only some missing original autographs but that he has MAINTAINED his inspired word down through the centuries of time in spite of sinful men who sit in the high places as the scholars and as the educators.
With over 200 translations of Bible having been made since 1881, The Devil sure has caused a lot of confusion, nevertheless, THE BIBLE still remains for us to trust and obey. The Apostle Paul had cause to be thankful over the Thessalonian believers.
“For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.” [I Thessalonians 2:13]
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” [Romans 10:17]
THOU STANDEST BY FAITH IN THE WORD OF GOD!
“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” [John 17:17]
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” [John 8:32]
This BOOK … The AV1611 Bible … in any of its editions … is the word of God!
Several hundred years ago there was an open door set before the true Church "which is his body." In the prophetic sense, this was the church of Philadelphia. [See the book of Revelation 1-3.] Not only are these seven literal churches in Asia, they are also indicative of seven distinct and chronological periods in church history. The church of Philadelphia had an open door set before it by the Holy Ghost, which no man could shut [1600-1900].
"And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name." [Revelation 3:7-8]
Never was there seen such a moving of God's Spirit circling the globe of this Earth in a movement from the east to the west. Never was there such an exciting and fascinating time! Never was there so much interest by so many of God's creation concerning the proceedings going on in the world in the hearts and minds of men.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ was literally going to the four quarters of the Earth with a resounding boom! Even the Devil, old Satan himself, had more than a passing interest in these proceedings. Satan's anger over losing the souls of men by the droves to the Son of God during this Philadelphia period had caused him to kick and fuss and work even harder against his old enemy. His enemy is THE ALMIGHTY GOD of The BOOK [The A.V.1611 Bible].
Remember, the Authorized Version of 1611, or any edition, thereof [1613,1644, 1676, 1680, 1701, 1769] is God's pure word preserved for us today.

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]
