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].

1. People Are Reeling and Staggering


 Here we are in the 21st century and do you want know something?

We have been found out!

The condition of men has worsened [so much so] beyond the point of ever returning to good health.

[This sick condition will remain without the interruption of the Second Advent of Jesus Christ.]

“That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.” [Psalm 67:2]

Maxim: The nations knowing the way of God … is health to all the nations.

THE KEY THING: The key to good health is knowing the ways of God!

We have now reached the point where we have lost all sensibility to sin and have become totally numb to the work of the Spirit of God in this age [John 16:8].

Bottom line, we have forgotten God’s ways … the WAY of GOD.

This is because men … everywhere … are always looking in one direction … downward!

THUS WE HAVE LOST OUR HEALTH!

Therefore, this thing can be said of us all:

We live in a drunken stupor … in a cloud of darkness … even in a continual … endless night.

Woe unto us! For we have all been spoiled and ruined, as Israel was spoiled and ruined, in the days of Isaiah the prophet: “For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of his glory.” [Isaiah 3:8]

Further than that, it can also be said of us, as it saith of them [in the Book of God] in Isaiah, chapter twenty-nine, verse nine: “Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.” [Isaiah 29:9]

Now, when we find somebody is drunken we also find the following to be true: The drunken has been overtaken with evil and thus has been placed into very cruel bondage.

Like an animal that has been caught in a trap the drunken has been ensnared in an iron cage. As the Scripture in the book of Psalms saith of them in a cage: “Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.” [Psalm 69:22]

Maxim: Those entrapped in a cage will receive their earned wages!

Maxim: “For the wages of sin is death;” [Romans 6:23a]. Death comes to you to take you away to the PIT!

Conclusion: Unbelief in God’s words is called staggering, and staggering always results in people:

• Being Drunken

• Being Overtaken

• Being Stupefied

• Being Kept in Bondage

• Being Held Captive to DEATH.

In contrast, believing in God’s words is called faith, and faith always results in people:

• Being Quickened

• Being Set Free

• Being Made Strong in Faith

• Being Fully Persuaded in the Verity of God’s Promises ... in inheriting Eternal Life.

Maxim: People looking always downward always brings them to a very bad end … to HELL!


2. The Misinterpreted Phenomenon


Now, there may be a time when the believer in Jesus Christ may appear to be as a drunken man, and appear to be as a man overcome, and appear to be done in, or finished off, as one would say.

Now, this thing was most certainly the case concerning Hannah according to the observation of Eli in the book of First Samuel, chapter one, verses thirteen and fourteen: “Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken. And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee.” [1 Samuel 1:13-14]

Hannah appeared to be drunken, and to be overcome, yet she was not!

The prophet Jeremiah also felt [within his soul’s heart] this very sensation concerning the power of God’s words … “the words of his holiness.” “Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine hath overcome, because of the LORD, and because of the words of his holiness.” [Jeremiah 23:9]

Now, Jeremiah appeared to be drunken, and to be overcome, yet he was not.

Even in the New Testament this appearance of a believer can be misinterpreted by others as men who are drunken and overcome.

There is an internal effect in the heart on those who reflect the light of the Gospel [“to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” [2 Corinthians 4:6], and often leads to the following observed phenomenon.

The believer in Jesus Christ can be troubled and perplexed [and so much so] as to give this very appearance [this appearance of being drunken and overcome]. This thing occurs to the believer because of the opposition to the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ by lost men. “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;” [2 Corinthians 4:8].

In addition to this phenomenon of believers in Jesus Christ being troubled on every side and being perplexed from this opposition to the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is imposed by others, there is also sensed [within the believer] this vexation in spirit which comes from living amongst the unrighteous in this world.

This vexation in spirit results in us, as believers in Jesus Christ, often having this appearance of being drunken, and overcome, according to the Scripture in Second Peter, chapter two, verse eight: “For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;” [2 Peter 2:8].

 

Next  3. Looking Downwards and Never Looking Upwards



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]
