The Basic Truths Of Life!

TRUTHS

The BibleEveryone 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 King James Bible

BibleThis 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.” .

LONG HOME

demo 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].

3. The Faces of Lions


Turn to the book of Ezekiel chapter one, verses five through ten.

Question: What is a face?

A face is a surface of something.

The surface of particular interest is the view to the personality of a person.

Therefore, the face of a person is the window to the soul of a person – its likeness.

We have in the book of Ezekiel the likeness of four living creatures presented to us.

Verse five: “Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.”

The likeness of something is determined primarily by its face.

A face presents an appearance.

Verse six: “And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.”
What the Spirit of God is describing here, through the prophet Ezekiel, is the appearance of the Cherubim, of which four are left after the fall of the fifth Cherub … “the anointed cherub that covereth”
[Ezekiel 28:14].

The face shown here of particular interest is “the face of a lion.”

“As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.”

Now, who besides the cherubim, and the seraphim [Revelation 4:8], in God’s creation have the faces of lions, or the similitude of the faces of lions?

Among the children of men they can be found.

Go back to First Chronicles, chapter twelve, verse eight:

“And of the Gadites … whose faces were like the faces of lions, and were as swift as the roes upon the mountains;” [1 Chronicles 12:8b].

Look at those Gadites. Those Gadites were real peculiar.

They had faces like the faces of lions!

Now, the Gadites are one of the twelve tribes of Israel.

Their land, along with the Reubenites, and half the tribe of Manasseh, was granted to them by Moses, and was located on the east side of the river Jordan.

We have this from the book of Deuteronomy: “And this land, which we possessed at that time, from Aroer, which is by the river Arnon, and half mount Gilead, and the cities thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites and to the Gadites.” [Deuteronomy 3:12]

These Gadites were the real easterners in the land of Israel.

Something else, they were the real cowboys of yesterdays. Cowboys?

Yes, real cowboys have a very great multitude of cattle.

See for this in the book of Numbers, chapter thirty-two:

“Now the children of Reuben and the children of Gad had a very great multitude of cattle: and when they saw the land of Jazer, and the land of Gilead, that, behold, the place was a place for cattle;” [Numbers 32:1].

Now, these appearances of the Gadites, having faces like the faces of lions, came as a result of prophecy.

See with me this prophecy in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter thirty-three, verse twenty: “And of Gad he said, Blessed be he that enlargeth Gad: he dwelleth as a lion, and teareth the arm with the crown of the head.” [Deuteronomy 33:20]

Do you see that?

They would dwell as a lion!

The lion will overcome at last. “Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.” [Genesis 49:19] God said it, and I believe it! Be strong, as these Gadites, as a lion in the FAITH: “Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.” [1 Corinthians 16:13]


4. The Face of a Beautiful Woman


We will find something of great importance here, and it is this: A person’s countenance reflects the inner person.

To repeat it in a different way:

It is the view to the personality of a person.

Here she is: In the book of First Samuel, chapter one, we find a woman of a very sad countenance. [This is Hannah.]

Now Hannah was fretting within herself because her spirit within her was provoked by an adversary. [Her adversary was this Peninnah]:

“And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret, because the LORD had shut up her womb.” [1 Samuel 1:6]

Notice here, when a person is fretting it will show up in the countenance of the face.

Hannah’s countenance revealed her grief.

In other words, her countenance reflected what was in the inside of her.

 Thus, the countenance reflects what’s in the heart [of man].

Now, if that heart seeks God, as Hannah’s did [see in verse eleven], then God will see the affliction in the heart of that soul [who sought him] with answered prayer.

Fact:

The promises of God believed in the heart always change the countenance of a man.

Hannah was indeed sad no more and her face showed it: “And she said, Let thine handmaid find grace in thy sight. So the woman went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad.” [1 Samuel 1:18]

Furthermore, one’s countenance shows one’s comeliness.

It attracts others.

See this: Get it down!

The bride’s countenance draws the bridegroom to her.

For this, see with me in the Song of Solomon, chapter two, verse fourteen, the word of God:

“O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.” [Song of Solomon 2:14]

Now, the face of a woman moves men.

More than that, a woman’s countenance can launch a thousand ships!

Do you doubt me? Men will go to war; men will march hundreds of miles for a woman who has a beautiful countenance.

This was true concerning Abigail in the Bible.

David was moved by Abigail as we shall find in the book of First Samuel chapter, twenty-five:

“Now the name of the man was Nabal; and the name of his wife Abigail: and she was a woman of good understanding, and of a beautiful countenance: but the man was churlish and evil in his doings; and he was of the house of Caleb.” [1 Samuel 25:3]

David was literally stopped dead in his tracks, and “kept ... from evil” [See First Samuel 25:39] because of the “good understanding” and “beautiful countenance” of Abigail.

Powerful is the woman who has these attributes! She can move men!

Thus, we might say, Abigail had SHINE! Amen!

Now we come to the countenance of a ruddy man.

 

Next  5. The Countenance of a Ruddy Man



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.
[Verse 1]

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]
