The Issue:

The Basic Truths Of Life!


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]


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.” .

Home In The Hills:

[Or New Jerusalem]


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].

Jesus Christ Is The Lighthouse

Jesus Christ is THE LIGHT!

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not"[John 1:1-5].

The darkness comprehended it not! Adam's sin has darkened our eyes [passed from generation to generation]. We are as dead men walking around.

"Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned"
[Romans 5:12].

One day, Old DEATH will grab you by the shoulder for a little journey. Are you ready? What direction are you going, my friend? That BOOK [The AV1611] is God's word in the English language.  You can count on it.  Jesus Christ is THE LIGHT.

Jesus Christ came to this earth two thousand years ago so that men … like you and I … might believe. This was the witness of John the Baptist. "The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the light, that all men through him might believe" [John 1:7].

Every man and woman will have no excuse at the Great White Throne Judgment. Romans 1:20 makes that plain. Do you want to argue with God over the matter? Go ahead if you want to, but I will fear for you, my friend.

The very creation of the world which is understood "by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead" renders man, so that he "is without excuse" concerning Jesus Christ being that light. "That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world" [John 1:9].

Every man has had that light, and every man has the responsibility about what he does, concerning THAT LIGHT. What will you do with Jesus Christ? That is the big question, and it is the most important question you and I will ever face in this life. Now, we have come to the chief issue and purpose of life, and to repeat: that the heart of every man and woman and child in the world who ever lived, or now lives, must deal with that number ONE ISSUE: What is to be done with JESUS CHRIST?

The requirement for you ... is to go through the narrow gate ... which is the Son of God. This will require you … to put your trust in the shed blood of the Lamb of God who was slain on Mt. Calvary almost two thousand years ago. This will require you … to put your trust in Him to save you from the wrath of God to be revealed at the end of this age. This will require you … to put your trust in Him to keep you from the eternal blackness and torment of Hell, which will be thrown in the Lake of Fire. [There will be no light from this fire!]

The Big Question is, Will you come to Jesus Christ, THE SON OF GOD, for the gift of eternal life? This is ... THE SO GREAT SALVATION ... of Hebrews chapter two! Listen.

There is no other way to be saved. "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved" [Acts 4:12].

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:"[Ephesians 2:8].

Yet, what ... is a free gift to all men, cost so much to The Son Of God, Jesus Christ! Then, why do men everywhere, and every day, refuse to believe The Gospel given so clearly in I Corinthians 15:1-4, and so simply and sweetly in John 3:16?

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." [John 1:1]

"In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not."  [John 1:4,5]

"That was the true light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world." [John 1:9]

"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name." [John 1:12]

"While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be children of light." [John 12:36]

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." [Matthew 11:28]

Go to:  The Gospel Road


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]
