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 BIBLE :

Believe The BOOK!

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 Whore's Sorceries

 "Looking for that blessed hope," (Titus 2:11-14)


 "... by thy sorceries were all nations deceived" (Revelation 18:23).

Anyone who can read and then use the scripture to judge the things of the world can easily discern that the Babylonian whore of Revelation 17-18 is a spiritual picture of the Roman Catholic Church.

I once heard someone object to this identification, claiming that the whore couldn’t be the Roman church because Revelation 18:23 says that she "deceived ... the nations" and "the great men of the earth" by her "sorceries." The Roman church, this person maintained, did not engage in sorcery.

It does not take a specialized knowledge of the occult to see the faultiness of this person’s objection. The following occultic practices and objects are all part of Romanism.

Necromancy (communion with the dead for the purpose of changing things): Prayers to dead saints qualify as necromancy. So, too, does the practice of keeping parts of dead bodies ("relics").

Transmogrification (the process of converting or transforming an object into something else): During the mass, a priest claims the power to convert/transform a wafer and some wine into the actual, literal flesh and blood of Jesus Christ. The words "hocus pocus" (popularly associated with "magic") derive from a Latin phrase used for centuries in the Roman mass: "Hoc est corpus" ("Here is the body").

Talismans (charms that ward off evil and produce extraordinary effects): Crucifixes, holy water, and rosary beads all qualify as talismans.

Mantras (supposedly "sacred" words or phrases repeated/recited as an incantation): The Rosary, the "Pater Noster," the "Hail Mary," and the "Ave Maria" (among others) qualify as mantras/incantations.

Incantations (verbal charms or spells used as part of a magic ritual): Almost any Catholic ritual (ritual of blessing or of exorcism, for example) or service is composed primarily of a priest reciting incantations. Catholic worship is so structured that rarely are prayers offered unless they are written down and included in a missal.

Curses, Candles, and Rituals: The pope claims the ability to curse people and things ("anathematize" them). Candles are lit as part of prayers (spells!) for the dead. In the eyes of the world, Catholicism is most noted for its ritualism.

Notice, too, that Voodoo is nothing but the union of Catholicism and east African paganism; that the design of Tarot cards has been influenced by Romanism; that the highest rate of occult participation in the world is found in Brazil (a predominantly Catholic country); that most occult and spiritist movements in the U.S.A. originated around Los Angeles, California (whose full name, translated into English, is "The City of the Angels of the Queen of Heaven"); and that Halloween ("All Hallows Even"—the night before All Hallows Day) started off as a Catholic observance.

The Roman church does practice sorcery—and uses it to deceive the world. Take away that sorcery and you have no more Roman Catholicism.
