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].

Are you ready???
The Identification Of The Most Beautiful WomanThe identification of her will be first made, and then we will find the description of her. The clear and exact identification is found in I Peter 1:6; "Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are."
This is her identity. She is a daughter of Sarah. She is the daughter that comes by faith (being justified by faith. See Romans 5:1). Look for yourselves and see how she is described in Proverbs 31:10-31. "Who can find a virtuous woman?"
Look at her. There she is ... the most beautiful woman ... is a virtuous woman, and look at her price, "for her price is far above rubies."
Now how can this be? If the price of a virtuous woman is far above rubies then, who could be found to pay for her?
Well, I will tell you who could pay for her. Jesus Christ paid for her! (Get excited, and whoop and holler around the room). With what did He pay for her? This virtuous woman was redeemed "with the precious blood of Christ" (I Peter 1:19).
This virtuous woman has been declared righteous by "the righteousness" of another (Romans 5:18). Amen! Amen!
This daughter of Sarah has been "quickened" (Ephesians 2:1) or "born again" (John 3:3-7) by the Spirit. She has been “purified”! "Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren." (I Peter 1:22)
The Description Of The Most Beautiful WomanLet us look at the description, of how the most beautiful woman is described by God:
She is a crown to her husband. "A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband"(Proverbs 12:4).
She is the safe repository for the heart of her husband. "The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil" (verse 11).
She always builds up (or promotes) her husband. "She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life" (verse 12). "Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land" (verse 23).
She works hard with her hands (industrious) for her family. "She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar. She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens" (verse 13-15). "She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff" (verse 19) (There will not be much opportunity here for long painted fingernails!!!) "She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates" (verse 27, 31).
She is market wise. "She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard" (verse 16). "She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night" (verse 18). "She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant" (verse 22, 24).
She is a giving person (hospitable). "She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy" (verse 20).
She is an achiever of noble goals in the face of opposition. "She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet" (verse 21).
There she is! The most beautiful woman is a Bible believing woman who has been bought "with the precious blood of Christ" and declared righteous by "the righteousness" of Jesus Christ THE SON OF GOD ... Who has "quickened" her by the Spirit ..."born again" ... “purified”!
Go to: The Father ... according to The Bible
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]
