THE WORDS OF THE LORD ARE PURE WORDS
At no time in human history did God leave mankind wholly without a verbal revelation.

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 Sea Change … The Millennium (The Kingdom of Heaven)

7. A Bountiful World
The world we see now … is nothing like what this world will become. There will be a SEA CHANGE … a radical transformation … to this earth!
Now, imagine the light of the sun being sevenfold of what we have now in this present age. The measured lumens will be “sevenfold” without an attendant “sevenfold” increase in heat. Do you think this is impossible? Well, the impossible is possible with God. Remember, my friend, what Jesus had said while He was here on this earth the first time [the 1st Advent]: “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” [Matthew 19:26] Believe God: “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.” [John 14:1]
The earth will return to the near-perfect conditions that had existed before sin came into the world because of the effect of the presence of God visibly ruling in the Kingdom of Heaven, whose capital city will be located at Jerusalem.
In the Millennium, the earth will enjoy near Garden of Eden-like conditions. The Earth will become a bountiful earth:
It will become a bountiful earth because of a “sevenfold” increase in light illuminating the earth in a high definition of colors, such has not been seen, nor enjoyed, ever since the times of the Garden of Eden.
It will become a bountiful earth because of all the ample and even distribution of rain throughout the earth; known as: “the rain of thy seed”.
It will become a bountiful earth because the thistles, the briers, and the locusts will not be allowed to hurt the earth’s massive harvests: in that day “the plowman shall overtake the reaper”.
It will become a bountiful earth because the ground of the earth will have manifold fertility … yielding the “bread of the increase”.
It will become a bountiful earth because all the presently carnivorous animals will eat grass only: “the lion shall eat straw like the ox.”
It will become a bountiful earth because the animals will become tame, becoming pets for children to play with … throughout the world: “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb.”
It will become a bountiful earth because those cities and those lands that are ruined … will be restored: “they shall build the waste cities.”
It will become a bountiful earth because all the people in the world will enjoy ideal health and great longevity … to live hundreds of years.
It will become a bountiful earth because there will be peace and a perfect government for the first time in the world: “Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon , to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever.”
“Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures. The oxen likewise and the young asses that ear the ground shall eat clean provender, which hath been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan. And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.”
“In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the Lord that doeth this. Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the Lord thy God.”
“The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.”
“And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.”
“There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed. And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord, and their offspring with them. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the Lord.”
8. With No More War
“Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.” [Jeremiah 30:7]
At the end of the seven years of tribulation, such as this earth has never seen before … a “sea change” will occur … after Jesus Christ judges “the nations” of this world. “And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.” [Isaiah 2:4] [Also, Micah 4:3]
The “sea change” is this: in the millennial Kingdom of Heaven, there will be no more war in the whole world. What man has tried to achieve for six thousand years without God will be done in a DAY. [This DAY is one thousand years.]
There will be a world-wide enforced peace, which peace will far exceed anything that man has ever seen or accomplished before, even the Pax Romana [the Roman peace with its attendant period of stability under the Roman Empire]. Man has failed miserably to achieve peace.
Man will learn to get along with man … only “at the presence of God”.
Now carefully evaluate this statement: if any man is able to see it is “the presence of God” on this earth that is the solution to all of man’s troubles, this same man is a man, who [we might say] has “arrived”. To arrive is to be “spiritual”. “But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.” [1 Corinthians 2:15] This is the very same man that believes God [what God says] … even “the word of God” in the King James Bible of 1611, or in any of its editions. “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.” [1 Thessalonians 2:13]
The truth is … what the men of this world seek for, [peace, joy and happiness] cannot be attained among men, by men, until Jesus Christ comes [in the Second Advent], and establishes HIS one-thousand-year Kingdom of Heaven here on this earth. Peace only comes to the people of this world when “The Prince of Peace” comes. [Isaiah 9:6] Amen!
“The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness. He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor. They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations. He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth. In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth. He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth. They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.” [Psalm 72:3-9]

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]
