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].

7. In The Air
According the Spirit of God in the word of God in the Second Epistle of Thessalonians there is only one thing that needs to happen before the meeting in the air can occur. This one thing is the great “falling away”.
The Scripture here reads: “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” [2 Thessalonians 2:1-3].
We have seen since the beginning of the 20th century this “falling away” among the churches. The churches in the main since 1900 have abandoned the faith. The so called Christianity of today is very traitorous to Jesus Christ.
This prophesy fulfilled.
The stage is now set!
In the outer reaches of this atmosphere called “the circle of the earth” is a great sitting place. The prophet Isaiah declares it: “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:” [Isaiah 40:22].
HE IS READY!
The next event to occur after “the falling away” is revealed in the First Epistle to the Thessalonians, chapter four, verses sixteen and seventeen: “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” [1 Thessalonians 4:16-17]
This event is the pre-tribulation “translation” of the Church ... which is His body. Now, this body is ... composed of all the true believers in Jesus Christ. The body of Christ, the Church, will leave Earth “to meet the Lord in the air.”
We are commanded to “comfort one another with these words” (vs. 18). “Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” [1 Thessalonians 4:18]
This event is known as the “blessed hope” according to the Spirit of God. “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” [Titus 2:13].
Furthermore, “That Wicked” one cannot be revealed in a temple to be built in Jerusalem until after we believers [the Christians] are removed from this planet earth! It behooves us to remember in this dispensation the Holy Ghost inhabits the believer's heart, and not some building made with hands. “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit dwelleth in you?” [1 Corinthians 3:16].
Therefore, when Jesus Christ comes in the clouds, and takes out of this earth the assembly of saints [the church], we will see the event [which is located in chapter two, verse seven, in the Second Epistle to the Thessalonians] “he be taken out the way” “... the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed,”
AND NOT UNTIL THEN!
To avoid being lost in the woods we need to believe that God has given us the Bible, which is the words of God.
Furthermore, we need to believe that God has given this Bible in the English language word perfect in spite of Satan working in collusion with the scholars who sit in their high places of academia having turned out over two hundred corrupt English translations since A.D. 1881.
Next, we need to be truly born of the Spirit [John 3:3] in order to discern the spiritual truths in the Bible thus opening the BOOK to us.
Next, we need to understand the differences between the sounds of the trumpet, the one to gather the congregation, and the other to alarm the congregation for a movement [to war or judgment].
After this we need to understand that the Christian [the believers in this age] are waiting for Jesus to come for us to gather us out of the earth. We are not waiting for the Beast to be revealed.
It will behoove us to understand the differences between two things: the nation of Israel, and the body of Christ, which is the church.
God has a different program for each.
God has destined the Jewish nation to a physical, earthly, Davidic Kingdom of Heaven with her Messiah ruling the nations of the earth for one thousand years.
Whereas, the Kingdom of God is primarily spiritual and is populated by those born of the Spirit, and placed into the body of Jesus Christ. God has destined the Church, the body of Christ, to be his bride, and to inhabit a city called New Jerusalem.
The last thing to be understood is that we are waiting for a trumpet to sound and gather us to him in the clouds … in a vast meeting in the air just before the wrath of God is unleashed in the 70th week of Daniel, which is the upcoming seven years of tribulation of Jacob’s trouble.
“Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” [1 Thessalonians 4:18]
We shall fly away! Amen! Are you saved?
WE … THOSE who are dead in Christ, + THOSE who are alive and remain, = THOSE who MEET the LORD “in the air”, and we are “comforted”.
“Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.” [James 5:7-8]

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]
