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].

The Law of Blessing and CursingIn The BOOK [Genesis 12:1-2] GOD divvies out ... blessings and cursing … according to how people [individuals or nations] treat Israel. This is God’s promise. You can count on it! God’s word is sure! Amen! Let’s read here in Genesis chapter twelve: "And I will make of thee [Israel] a great nation, and I will bless thee, [Israel] and make thy name great [Israel]; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, [Israel] and curse him that curseth thee: [Israel] and in thee [Israel] shall all families of the earth be blessed." [Genesis 12:1-2] Today, they [Israel] are finally coming home from the ends of the earth! Since 1917, and because of the Balfour Agreement [God himself was behind the Balfour Agreement], the Jews are coming back to THE LAND. Yea, God is drawing them [Israel] back. Yea, GOD is in the affairs of men.
Spiritual Wickedness“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” [Ephesians 6:12]
In the BIBLE [The A.V. 1611] we are told by the Spirit of GOD that there is “spiritual wickedness in high places” that oppose us, and they want to destroy us: the believers in Jesus Christ [Christians] and the Jews [Israel]. This spiritual wickedness in high places has a leader. This leader is the small letter [g] god of this world. We see who this god is … in the book of 2 Corinthians chapter four, verse four. “In whom the god [god] of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” This god is the [DEVIL]. The Devil has those who minds have been blinded by him … to do his bidding …. The Devil is the master of the [Jack in the Boxes].

The Master of The Jacks-In-The-Box The Devil[SATAN] appears also as the DRAGON in the book of Revelation. “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:” [The Woman is ISRAEL] “And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon,” [The red dragon is the DEVIL] “having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads” [because he is the god of this world]. “And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven,” [fallen angels – devils] “and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman [ISRAEL] which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child [JESUS CHRIST] as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, [JESUS CHRIST] who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child [JESUS CHRIST] was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman [ISRAEL] fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they [Angels] should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon [DEVIL] fought and his angels [devils], And prevailed not; neither was their [devils] place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” Revelation 12:1-9

The First Jack-in-the-Box is HAMAN the son of Hammedatha the Agagite,[Persia, "Iran"] in the book of Esther!
Learn from history!
Haman is the prototype of the jack-in-the-box. Haman gloated over the thought of his legally planned extermination of Israel, by a law to put to the DEATH by the sword all the Jews in every province of Persia, [modern day Iran]... which in the end … is to Haman’s own destruction. In Esther 3:6, we find: “And he thought scorn to lay hands on Mordecai alone; for they had shewed him the people of Mordecai [JEWS]: wherefore Haman sought to destroy [genocide] all the Jews that were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus, even the people of Mordecai.” Read in the book of Esther! "For we are sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be slain, and to perish. But if we had been sold for bondmen and bondwomen, I had held my tongue, although the enemy could not countervail the king's damage. Then the king Ahasuerus answered and said unto Esther the queen, Who is he, and where is he, that durst presume in his heart to do so? And Esther said, The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman.” [The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman.] [Esther 7:4-10] It was to Haman's own destruction.

Today, there are some who gloat over the possibility of the extermination of Israel, and it will be to their own destruction.
The Third Jack-in-the-Box is AHMADINEJAD[Persia, "Iran" in 2006.
Learn from history!]
Iran's Ahmadinejad brags [in the same spirit of that of Haman, and of Hitler] with the devilish desire for the destruction of Israel. "As the Imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map,' said Ahmadinejad, referring to Iran's revolutionary leader Ayat Allah Khomeini.” [Careful now … or it will be to your [Iran’s] own destruction. Learn from history, and believe the BOOK! [Genesis 12:2-3]
Friends, as we watch the events unfolding at a furious pace in the middle-east, at the exact geographical and political center of this earth, we need to pray for Israel. “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.” [Psalm 122:6-8] Let’s read in Esther chapter four, verse fourteen.
“For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
Therefore, we should not hold our peace. As Mordecai appealed to Esther … we need to realize that “the enlargement and deliverance” will arise for Israel from some quarter. Watch where it comes!
