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.” .

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].

2. The Sound of the Trumpet
(Two Things Different Are Not the Same)
All musical instruments have voices.
Now, notice this with me in the book of Exodus, chapter nineteen, verse nineteen: “And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.” [Exodus 19:19]
In this one verse, we have three voices: “the voice of the trumpet”, the voice of a man [Moses], and the voice of God. It further can be shown that the voice of a trumpet is identified [more than any other instrument] with the voice of God.
See for this in the book of Psalms: “God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.” [Psalm 47:5]
We are now ready to read this passage in the Scripture: the book of Numbers, chapter ten, verses one through nine:
“And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps. And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And if they blow but with one trumpet, then the princes, which are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee. When ye blow an alarm, then the camps that lie on the east parts shall go forward. When ye blow an alarm the second time, then the camps that lie on the south side shall take their journey: they shall blow an alarm for their journeys. But when the congregation is to be gathered together, ye shall blow, but ye shall not sound an alarm. And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow with the trumpets; and they shall be to you for an ordinance for ever throughout your generations. And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.” [Numbers 10:1-9]
The trumpet should not be used to produce an uncertain sound. “For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?” [1 Corinthians 14:8]. Now, God is not the“author of confusion” [1 Corinthians 14:33]; he intends for the trumpet to produce a certain sound in order to convey a message.
Therefore, the voice of a trumpet is designed to produce different messages.
The first trumpet message of God to man [in the book of Numbers, chapter ten] is the call to the congregation of God to come to him … to “assemble” before him. “And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.” The trumpet was to have a certain voice, or sound, to call for the assembly of the people.
The second trumpet message of God to man [in the book of Numbers chapter ten] is the call to “alarm”: “When ye blow an alarm, then the camps that lie on the east parts shall go forward.” The trumpet was to have a certain voice, or sound, to call for a military movement of the people to war. “And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.” “My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war.” [Jeremiah 4:19]
One voice of the trumpet was a call for God’s people to “assemble”.
While the other voice of the trumpet was to call for God’s people to “alarm”.
Further, the voice of “alarm” is to “warn” the people. “If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;” [Ezekiel 33:3].
In the first epistle written by the Apostle Paul by the Spirit of God “unto the church of God which is at Corinth” [1 Corinthians 1:2], in the fifteenth chapter, there is prophecy for a trumpet that is to sound in the very near future. “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” [1 Corinthians 15:52]
This trumpet will have a certain sound signifying a certain voice. It will be the voice of the trumpet in the similitude of the voice of God calling the church age saints to an assembly in the air. This particular last trumpet is not a call to alarm, or a call to judgment. It will be a call to come up … to come up into the air … to the clouds above this earth to meet the Lord in the air.
This is unlike the trumpets “which are yet to sound” in the seventieth week of Daniel [Daniel 9:24] in the book of the Revelation: “And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!” [Revelation 8:13] These trumpets here in the book of Revelation are different; they are sounding an alarm.
It is very important to the believer in Jesus Christ to learn that two things that are different are not the same. The “last trump” in First Corinthians, chapter fifteen, is not to be confused with the trumpet calls located in the book the Revelation.
Two things different are not the same!
One voice of the trumpet is to call for the church to “assemble”.
While the other voice of the trumpet is to call the people to “alarm”.
One voice of the trumpet is prior to the seventieth week of Daniel.
While the other voice of the trumpet is in the midst of the seventieth week of Daniel.
One voice of the trumpet is to call the pre-tribulation meeting … to meet the Lord in the air.
While the other voice of the trumpet is to call to alarm the inhabitants of this earth to the visitation of the wrath of God!
Two things different are not the same!
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]
