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].

The Hedge of Thorns Series
Old Paths Baptist Mission © 2011 Richard St.James
This is a message anchored in the BOOK of God. This is a message from the messenger.
The messenger is preaching God’s word to you and me.
This is the premise of this message.
God has preserved the inspiration of His words that He spoke in times past … in the universal language of the end times … in the Authorized Version of the Bible [A.V. 1611] which is commonly known as the King James Bible.
Here is my warning to you concerning this message. This is a message that runs counter to the opinions of this old world. This is a message … from the messenger to you. “Then spake Haggai the Lord's messenger in the Lord's message unto the people, saying, I am with you, saith the Lord.” [Haggai 1:13]
This is where I will begin.
There is a danger when men “join house to house” in a global village.
The reason why is because of this following basic truth.
Sin within the heart of man fans the flames ever hotter and hotter when the inhabitants of this earth come together.
It is not healthy for people when the people live too close together. It was Thomas Jefferson, one of our founding fathers, that gave us this observation over two hundred years ago. Quote: “When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.”
Now, Thomas Jefferson believed the Bible as many of our forefathers did. They got their “wisdom” from the word of God. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” [Proverbs 9:10] This is where we need to go … in order to receive WISDOM.
Now, where in the Bible is this truth located … showing the danger in joining “house to house”? It is located in Isaiah chapter five, in verse eight. This is where the Spirit of God gives us this warning concerning the cities and the suburban communities world-over: “Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!” [Isaiah 5:8]
1. Bounds and Limits
3. Walls and Fences
1. Bounds and Limits
There are bounds and limits in life. The bounds and limits are placed into our lives by GOD … according to the BOOK of bounds and limits.
This BOOK of bounds and of limits … in the English language … is the Authorized Version of 1611. This BOOK is commonly known as the King James Bible.
Now, here are some basic truths concerning these bounds and limits: Read more?
Within those bounds and those limits in life … there are found “paths”. Now, according the.Within those bounds and those limits in life … there are found “paths”.
Now, according the BOOK, we are to walk in the “paths” that are framed or hemmed in by those bounds and by those the limits, which are established by the GOD of this BOOK.
More than all of this, God’s word reveals that there are two different paths that men may take in life.
These two paths are distinctly different. These two paths lead to totally different destinations. What are these two paths? Where do these two paths lead? Read more?
3. Walls and Fences
“Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.” [Psalm 122:7]
Bordering “the old paths” are the walls.
There are walls in life. Walls are erected for the protection of those who live therein. “Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there.” [Numbers 13:28] Read more?
The word “hedge” is found nine times in the Bible. Every time the word “hedge” shows up in the BOOK we can see it is God behind the placement of the “hedge”. It is God that makes the hedges.
Anyone who destroys a “hedge”is going to get into trouble. “He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.” [Ecclesiastes 10:8] It is a bad thing to do … to destroy a “hedge”. A “hedge” is meant by God to be a protection. It is meant for a defense for a man. Read more?
“The way of the slothful man is as an hedge of thorns: but the way of the righteous is made plain.” [Proverbs 15:19]
There are times when the only way to keep a person out of trouble and from being ruined, or from being destroyed, is to hem that person in with a hedge of thorns. God knows this. We need to learn this.
My friend, a wall of thorns separating you and me from ruin and destruction … is a true friend. A “hedge of thorns” is a true blessing.
This takes us straight to Hosea our Bible for this strange command. Hosea, the prophet of God, was commanded by the Lord to “take unto” himself “a wife of whoredoms” in the very first chapter in verse two. Read more?
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]
