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.” .

[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].

9. Under The Head Nation
“And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for his firstborn.”
“The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.”
There is a King, and a Kingdom … coming to this earth soon, which will have dominion over all the nations of the world. This Kingdom shall be given to a particular people … a peculiar people … “to the people of the saints of the most High”:
“And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.” [Daniel 7:27]
There is something else we need to see here.
The nation of Israel is the most hated nation on the face of the earth, and the Jewish people are the most hated people on the face of this whole earth. Why is this? I will tell you why.
It has now been a very long time since this following event has occurred “in the sides of the north”. Long before the six millennia of years of time, “the anointed cherub” fell [“till iniquity was found in thee.” Ezekiel 28] [“I will be like the most High.” Isaiah 14].
Now, ever since that time, Satan, once “the anointed cherub”, has only spewed vociferous hatred towards God, and the things of God. Furthermore, Satan [the Devil] has utilized every possible opportunity … with a continuous ever-increasing anger … to destroy the Jews, and all the people of God.
The epic scene for this stupendous warfare [in spiritual wickedness] is seen in the book of Revelation chapter twelve. We read in verse four: “And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.” [Revelation 12:4]
See this thing from the mind’s eye; the Devil hates “the woman” [Israel], because the Devil hates “her child” [Jesus Christ], because “her child” is God come in the flesh [“God was manifest in the flesh”-1 Timothy 3:16].
This is why the nation of Israel is the most hated nation on the face of the earth, and this is why the Jewish people are the most hated people on the face of this earth.
This has been this way ever since the day God gave to Abraham and to his seed the most strategically important piece of land in the whole world. Now here is the LAND GRANT given by promise [a “covenant”]: “In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:” [Genesis 15:18].
Now, God had it prophesied by the prophet Moses, that someday Israel will be “the head” nation over all other nations on this earth “and not the tail” [Note: they are “the tail” in the world’s eyes to this very day]. They will become “the head” nation … according to the book of Deuteronomy chapter twenty-eight, verse thirteen: “And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:” [Deuteronomy 28:13].
10. And The Throne of David
“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.”
The Kingdom of Heaven is coming to this earth. The disciples of Jesus Christ were taught to pray: “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” [Matthew 6:10]
Then, it is all about a King, and a Kingdom. It is all about Jesus Christ, and involving a “restitution of all things”: “Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.” [Acts 3:21]
It is shown repeatedly in the word of God, the Bible, that the dominant theme of the Bible is that of a King, and of a Kingdom. This Kingdom comes in “the restitution of all things” in the seventh millennia of time, and will establish “the throne” with “the key of the house of David” within “the tabernacle of David”. More than this, this “throne” will be established “in mercy” and “in truth”, and the government will be on the “shoulders” of “a righteous Branch”, WHO is called: “THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS”.
Isaiah 16:5: “And in mercy shall the throne be established: and he shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness.”
Isaiah 22:22: “And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.”
“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. But, The Lord liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land. But they shall serve the Lord their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.”
“In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The Lord our righteousness. For thus saith the Lord; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;”
David will shepherd the nation of Israel both as a prince, and as a king [a regent], under Jesus Christ, as Joseph was under Pharaoh in Genesis 41:43.
· David is to be “the shepherd”.
· David is to be “the prince”.
· David is to be “the king”.
This will occur in “the regeneration” which is foretold in the book of Matthew: “And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” [Matthew 19:28]
David will be raised up from the dead [along with the disciples] “in the regeneration”! [Do you doubt this?]
[The “resurrection” of the dead to life is done by “the power of God”. Now, what did Jesus say to Martha in the gospel according to Matthew? “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:” (John 11:25)] Also, located in the gospel according to Matthew is this rebuke to the Sadducees “Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.” [Matthew 22:29]
We see this truth of David being “set up” [to be the shepherd … to be the prince … to be the king] by THE KING [Jesus Christ] in the book of Ezekiel chapter thirty-four, verses twenty-three through twenty-four: “And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I the Lord will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the Lord have spoken it.” [Ezekiel 34:23-24], and in chapter thirty-seven, verses twenty-four through twenty-five: “And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.” [Ezekiel 37:24-25]
This is confirmed again [Scripture with Scripture] in the book of Hosea: “Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the Lord their God, and David their king; and shall fear the Lord and his goodness in the latter days.” [Hosea 3:5]

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]
