THE WORDS OF THE LORD ARE PURE WORDS
At no time in human history did God leave mankind wholly without a verbal revelation.

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.” .

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 Kingdom Age 1,000 Years
1,000 years: this is the number of the years that is set for the Kingdom Age. This KINGDOM is “the kingdom of our God” in the book of Revelation, and runs “a thousand years” in time.
The scene is now set: “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” [Revelation 12:10]
This “kingdom of our God” runs concurrently with the Devil’s imprisonment in “the bottomless pit”. We can see this duration [in time] for the imprisonment of Satan in the book of Revelation, chapter twenty. Now, as we read these verses of Scripture, we need to note how many times the word “thousand” appears. Are you ready to go?
“And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,  And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years  should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.  But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years  were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.  And when the thousand years  are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,” [Revelation 20:2-7], 1+1+1+1+1+1=6
Six times … in six CONSECUTIVE verses, the word “thousand” shows up. We had better take notice! When the word of God gives the numeric value six times in as many verses, then we need to learn:
The duration of time of the Devil’s internment in the bottomless pit is one thousand years.
The duration of time that the nations of earth will be free from the influence and control of the Devil is one thousand years.
The duration of time that the saints of God will live and reign with Jesus Christ in the Kingdom of Heaven is one thousand years.
The duration of time that the rest of the dead, who are not part of the first resurrection, remain dead, is one thousand years.
The duration of time that the believers of this age [the Church Age] will be “priests of God and of Christ” is one thousand years.
The expiration of time till Satan is loosed is one thousand years.
The length of time for “the kingdom of our God” is one “thousand” years. Can God make it any plainer to us than this?
Lesson: we need to believe “the word of God” and to take “the word of God” at face value [as literal], unless “the word of God” shows us otherwise, [by the context] to be figurative, by no ONE else, than the Holy Ghost. “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.” [John 16:13]
In this present dispensation … the Church Age … the Christian has the Holy Spirit inside of him [1 Corinthians 3:16] to teach him the “things to come”. Thy kingdom come … Amen! [Matthew 6:10]
6. The Last Days
The last day is the seventh day. The seventh day is a day of rest. It was a day of rest from the beginning of time: “And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.” [Genesis 2:2-3]
The directive [Exodus 20: 8-11] to Israel was for them to rest [in similitude to the creation week] on the seventh day. This is amplified in the book of Deuteronomy: “But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.” [Deuteronomy 5:14]
Furthermore, this seventh day is to be a holy day for Israel. Remember this commandment is embedded in the LAW: “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.” [Exodus 20:8]
“And it shall come to pass in the last days,” [Isaiah 2:2] … [note: it will be “in the last days”] … that all the earth will be made to keep the millennial day holy.
“And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.” [Isaiah 2:2-3]

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]
