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 BIBLE :

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.” .

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].

 5. Arianism


Now, we come to a verse in the BIBLE [John 1:18] that has been of very great interest to the Devil and his dupes [the scholars] for nearly two thousand years!!!

This verse reads: “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.” [John 1:18]

Now, I need to issue a warning to the scholars here. We all need to be students of God’s word, and to be taught directly by the HOLY SPIRIT: “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.” [John 16:13-14]

There are those [the scholars] who will corrupt the word of GOD in order to attack the deity of Jesus Christ. They were there in Paul’s day, and they are still here today. We ought rather to be, what it says here in the word of God: “For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.” [2 Corinthians 2:17]

There are twenty-four words in verse eighteen, and it’s the twelfth word in the Authorized Version [A.V. 1611] that the translators of the NIV, ASV, NASV could not keep their dirty little fingers off: “Son”.

Now, let’s look at this twelfth word in John chapter one, verse eighteen, which is of so much interest to the scholars and to the DEVIL.

Let us now look at it also in the modern translation called the New American Standard [NASV]. In the NASV it reads this way: “No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten 1 God, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.”

The superscript 1 is inserted before “God” as a reference to a margin note in the NASV: “Some later mss. Read, Son.”

[This is found on page 139 of the 1971 first edition of the NASV produced by The Lockman Foundation, 1960, 1962, 1963, 1968, 1971.]

In The Forward on page iii, we find this statement: “(This translation follows the principles used in the American Standard Version 1901 known as the Rock of Biblical honesty.)”

Now, the NASV is anything but honest!!! The Lockman Foundation followed the naturalistic principles of natural men … Brooke Foss Westcott and Fenton John Anthony Hort [A.D. 1885].

Here is what God terms the works of natural men: “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” [1 Corinthians 2:14]

They [Westcott and Hort] were unsaved men who rejected the DEITY of Jesus Christ. You cannot apply naturalistic principles to a spiritual BOOK!

[The BIBLE is a supernatural SPIRITUAL BOOK].

There you have it … in the NASV: There are two gods … one is here in, “No man has seen God at any time”, and another … a created God ... in, “the only begotten God”.

This is what the Jehovah’s Witnesses New World Translation has done also.

Who are the Jehovah’s Witnesses? The Jehovah’s Witnesses are the modern day Arians [Arius AD 250 or 256–336] who deny Jesus Christ’s deity. They deny that Jesus Christ is JEHOVAH GOD! The Arian heresy claims that Jesus Christ is a created god. Thus, Arianism begets a created god [a small letter “g” god!

The B-I-B-L-E says this: “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.” [John 1:18]

The Son declares the Father!

The Son makes the Father known. He reveals the Father.


6. Faith


If you start wrong, you will end up wrong!
If you get it right, you will end up right!

The most critical test to be performed in the life of any person found on the face of this earth … is the acid test for the presence of a particular attribute. This particular attribute to be tested for … is the presence of an inner repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.

See for this “repentance” and “faith” the book of Acts, chapter twenty, verse twenty-one: “Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.” [Acts 20:21]

Further, this inward repentance and faith [in Jesus Christ] is made known on the outside through confession of a PERSON [Jesus Christ]:

“Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” [1 John 4:2-3]

Further than that, confession is an acknowledgement of TRUTH.

To amplify this further, confession is an outward, public statement [with deed] made by a person who is testifying to others so that they may hear, and see, what he already believes inwardly [or privately] to be true.

Now, confession takes guts to make in this old world, and can often have consequences to the very hurt of the person who makes this confession of Jesus Christ.

“My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.” [1 John 3:18]

If a person publicly acknowledges, or confesses, to others that “Jesus Christ is come in the flesh”, then that person is “of God”. It is this person who is the true believer! He, or she, is the true Christian.

Contrariwise, if a person will not publicly acknowledge, or confess, to others that “Jesus Christ is come in the flesh”, then he is not “of God”.

Therefore, this person is a not a believer. He, or she, has “that spirit of antichrist”. “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.” [2 John 1:7]

The bottom line is … we are either for Jesus Christ, or we are against Jesus Christ. There is no middle ground at all in this matter of Jesus Christ.

Any attempt to fence straddle here will fail you, my friend. Now, what is your confession?


Next  7. Three In One



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]
