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.” .

[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].

5. The Countenance of a Ruddy Man

Then, what can be said of the countenance of a ruddy man? Now, this leads to an important question.

Question: What is a ruddy man? I will tell you!

A ruddy man is a very handsome looking man!

The word ruddy indicates the shine or tinge of a red (or rose) color that is lively (or ruddy), and filled with life (lively), showing forth


[See Psalm 42:11, “who is the health of my countenance, and my God” and
Psalm 43:5, “who is the health of my countenance, and my God.”]

Pause here.

This attribute [ruddy] describes Jesus Christ!

Where in the Bible do we find this?

Turn to the Song of Solomon chapter five, verse ten, and see: “My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand.” [Song of Solomon 5:10]

“Her Nazarites were purer than snow, they were whiter than milk, they were more ruddy in body than rubies, their polishing was of sapphire:” [Lamentations 4:7]

Do you have it now?

Now, back to David. David was a ruddy looking man.

This means David was a good looking man!

A man who is ruddy is a man of a beautiful countenance.

But according to WHOM?

According to the Spirit of God!

Now, he had a face that shined with beauty, [and as we shall see], for he is introduced to us, for all of us to behold in the book of First Samuel, chapter sixteen, verse twelve:

“And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.” [1 Samuel 16:12]

Therefore, a ruddy man is a beautiful man! A ruddy man has SHINE!

6. The Poker Face of the Beast

Not all that appear to be lions are true lions.

There is a person [a lion], who is the “Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David”, and there is another person who is … as a lion.

This is the fake lion – “the devil”.

Keep in mind, the Devil is the great imitator.

Do not ever forget that!

Furthermore, he is your adversary!

He wants to destroy you!

The DEVIL is the destroyer!

The fulfillment of prophecy is for sure: “The lion is come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of the Gentiles is on his way; he is gone forth from his place to make thy land desolate; and thy cities shall be laid waste, without an inhabitant.” [Jeremiah 4:7]

The time of trouble is coming!

It is, as it says it is, in First Peter, chapter five, verse eight:

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” [1 Peter 5:8].


There are those who will smile at you, and while they are smiling at you, they are planning to carve you up [like a turkey].

They feign to have a love for you, for the purpose of hurting you!

They have learned how to feign [to disconnect] their heart’s true intention from being revealed on the face’s countenance.

They can be said — to have mastered … the poker face.

A poker face, thus, exhibits an appearance, accompanied with words, which are formed into declarations that hide this person’s intentions.

The master of the poker face is the DEVIL himself.

Here is how he operates:

“He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.” [Psalm 10:8]

His main cohort, and major accomplice will be the Beast in: The Book of the Revelation:

“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” [Revelation 13:1-2]

This beast will be known for his poker face!

In contrast to the poker face of the Devil [and of the Beast] we have the awesome face of God.

Next  7. The Face of God

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]
