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].

The Book Of Haggai

Haggai 1:1 In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the
first day of the month, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet unto
Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of
Josedech, the high priest, saying,

Haggai 1:2 Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The
time is not come, the time that the LORD'S house should be built.

Haggai 1:3 Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying,

Haggai 1:4 Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your ceiled houses, and
this house lie waste?

Haggai 1:5 Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.

Haggai 1:6 Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not
enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there
is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag
with holes.

Haggai 1:7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.

Haggai 1:8 Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I
will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the LORD.

Haggai 1:9 Ye looked for much, and, lo, it came to little; and when ye
brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the LORD of hosts. Because of
mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house.

Haggai 1:10 Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth
is stayed from her fruit.

Haggai 1:11 And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the
mountains, and upon the corn, and upon the new wine, and upon the oil, and
upon that which the ground bringeth forth, and upon men, and upon cattle, and
upon all the labour of the hands.

Haggai 1:12 Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua the son of
Josedech, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the
voice of the LORD their God, and the words of Haggai the prophet, as the LORD
their God had sent him, and the people did fear before the LORD.

Haggai 1:13 Then spake Haggai the LORD'S messenger in the LORD'S message
unto the people, saying, I am with you, saith the LORD.

Haggai 1:14 And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of
Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech,
the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they
came and did work in the house of the LORD of hosts, their God,

Haggai 1:15 In the four and twentieth day of the sixth month, in the second
year of Darius the king.

Haggai 2:1 In the seventh month, in the one and twentieth day of the month,
came the word of the LORD by the prophet Haggai, saying,

Haggai 2:2 Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah,
and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and to the residue of the
people, saying,

Haggai 2:3 Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? and
how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing?

Haggai 2:4 Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the LORD; and be strong, O
Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the
land, saith the LORD, and work: for I am with you, saith the LORD of hosts:

Haggai 2:5 According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out
of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not.

Haggai 2:6 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while,
and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;

Haggai 2:7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall
come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.

Haggai 2:8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of
hosts.

Haggai 2:9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the
former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith
the LORD of hosts.

Haggai 2:10 In the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, in the second
year of Darius, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying,

Haggai 2:11 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the
law, saying,

Haggai 2:12 If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his
skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be
holy? And the priests answered and said, No.

Haggai 2:13 Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch
any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall
be unclean.

Haggai 2:14 Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is
this nation before me, saith the LORD; and so is every work of their hands;
and that which they offer there is unclean.

Haggai 2:15 And now, I pray you, consider from this day and upward, from
before a stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of the LORD:

Haggai 2:16 Since those days were, when one came to an heap of twenty
measures, there were but ten: when one came to the pressfat for to draw out
fifty vessels out of the press, there were but twenty.

Haggai 2:17 I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all
the labours of your hands; yet ye turned not to me, saith the LORD.

Haggai 2:18 Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and
twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the
LORD'S temple was laid, consider it.

Haggai 2:19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig
tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from
this day will I bless you.

Haggai 2:20 And again the word of the LORD came unto Haggai in the four and
twentieth day of the month, saying,

Haggai 2:21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the
heavens and the earth;

Haggai 2:22 And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy
the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the
chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall
come down, every one by the sword of his brother.

Haggai 2:23 In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, will I take thee, O
Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the LORD, and will make
thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the LORD of hosts.

 

God's word to you ... The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.
 [Deuteronomy 29:29]

 

Questions to ask yourself while reading God's word:

Are you ready?


1) Do you have a "prepared heart" to seek God?

2) Have you found His Book?

3) Is your heart "fixed"? John 3:5 "born of water and of the Spirit"

4) Do you inquire of the LORD?

 "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" [2 Timothy 3:15]

5) Do you show forth your light by your good works?   "Let your light so shine..." [Matthew 5:16]

6) Are you openly, before all men, publishing your relationship to Jesus?   Do you possess "a good profession before many witnesses" ?  [1 Timothy 6:11-12]

 7) Are you following after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness?

8) Do you have a heart in communion with the Spirit of God in a celebration of a worship of praise?
