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].

All About The Rear Guard Preachers
Old Paths Baptist Mission © 2011 Richard St.James
"Let's quit fiddling with religion and do something to bring the world to Christ. If you want to drive the devil out of the world, hit him with a cradle instead of a crutch."
In the last century ... The Rear Guard has now past on into history.
GOD had sent his REAR GUARD preachers to America to try to turn America back to himself.
GOD had sent men like Sam Jones to preach. D.L. Moody once said of Sam Jones: "God has put into your hands the sledge hammer with which to shatter the formalism of the church and batter down the strongholds of sin, and He is helping you mightily to use it."
GOD also sent Lorenzo Dow to preach fire and brimstone to a people growing dim in the eyes and cold in the heart.
The LORD has had a literal drove of troops. Some of them are listed here.
Reuben Torrey (1856-1928), William B. Riley (1861-1947), Bob Jones, Sr. (1883-1968), Billy Sunday (1862-1935), J. Frank Norris (1877-1952), Harry Ironside (1876-1951), Mordecai Ham (1877-1961), T.T. Shields (1873-1955), Charles G. Finney (1792-1875), David Brainerd (1718-1747), and Shelden Jackson (1834-1909).
God's old-time preachers that stood true suffered derision and ridicule and were often threatened for their very lives.
One time in 1908 after Mordecai Ham had preached there, the streets of Asheville, North Carolina, were filled all night with crowds shouting "Hang Ham! Hang Ham!" Another time Mordecai was in San Benite, Texas, (1918) and a bunch of soldiers "seized him and started up the railroad tracks with a rope, a bucket of tar, and a sack of feathers." (Ed Reese, Christian Hall of Fame Series, Mordecai Ham, p. 10).
GOD sent his prophets to Israel.
GOD sent his preachers to America!
America was increasingly rejecting them.
With that rejection, the Bible colleges and seminaries began turning out a different breed of preachers. Modernism, materialism and unbelief had crept in. America was turning away from the God of the Bible. History had repeated itself.
There is one thing we can learn from history, and that is, men do not learn from history!
Billy Sunday once said:
"Let's quit fiddling with religion and do something to bring the world to Christ.
If you want to drive the devil out of the world, hit
him with a cradle instead of a crutch.
I'm against sin.
I'll kick it as long as I've got a foot, and I'll fight it as long as I've got a fist.
I'll butt it as long as I've got a head. I'll bite it as long as I've got a tooth.
And when I'm old and fistless and footless and toothless, I'll gum it till I go home to Glory and it goes home to perdition!"

Dow's fire and brimstone sermon at the Methodist Church that night was interrupted by a group that had gathered to harass the evangelist.

All About The Rear Guard Preachers - W.B. Riley
Riley's ministry was one of preaching the gospel as well as fighting foes of the gospel, and he was sympathetic to other evangelists engaged in this same fight, providing help and support to R.A. Torrey and Gipsy Smith.
He was chosen secretary to prepare for J. Wilbur Chapman's campaign in Minneapolis.
"Because of Chipp's anger and abuse I listened to the conversation.
Everybody in the hotel was afraid of him.
I heard him call Dr. Norris mane vile names, and he was very profane.
I heard him repeat several time, "You blankety, blankety blank, I am coming over there and kill you."
All About The Rear Guard Preachers - Mordecai Ham
Crazed with liquor, they marched into his tabernacle, seized him and started up the railroad tracks with a rope, a bucket of tar, and a sack of feathers.
A detachment of cavalry from the nearest army base came to his rescue as the mayor wired Washington of the predicament.
They were three miles down the track before they were overtaken.
By all odds Peter S. should have not ever made it to where he is today, but for God’s grace!
I give all praise and thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ for this man who more than any other man in this century, has done more to hold back the apostasy in the local New Testament Baptist churches.
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]
