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.” .

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].

The Rear Guard Preachers - Peter S. Ruckman

Old Paths Baptist Mission © 2011 Richard St.JamesPeter Ruckman

"By all odds Peter S. should have not ever made it to where he is today, but for God’s grace!

I give all praise and thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ for this man who more than any other man in this century, has done more to hold back the apostasy in the local New Testament Baptist churches.

Peter S. Ruckman has exposed THE TROJAN HORSE that has been rolled into the Bible colleges and schools."

"I remember back in 1974 the crisis I had come to as a new born babe in Christ, while aboard the USS Enterprise off the coast of South Vietnam. The crisis was this. Every one of the men in the Bible study in the chapel room on that particular day had a different translation of the Bible. We were all reading in I John 5, when one man quoted I John 5:7. I had a problem! “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” It was not in MY Bible. The A.S.V. (American Standard Version) translators craftily had omitted I John 5:7, and fabricated a new verse seven by splitting verse six in half!

Somebody was lying to me. I was, up to that point in time, ON FIRE for the LORD and witnessing Jesus Christ to every one that would listen to me. But consternation and disillusionment were shooting into me the poisonous venom of unbelief because of the problem of that missing verse in my A.S.V. The question came to me like this. Isn’t the Bible God’s word? Are there errors in it? Which Bible is the word of God? Then the Spirit of God in his care … brought me to the truth in the form of a book by Peter S. Ruckman, Satan’s Masterpiece: The New ASV. From that crisis point in 1974 up to now, I never have doubted that God has an inspired BOOK on this earth for me to read, believe and obey. It is the A.V. 1611 or more commonly known as the King James Bible."

"Peter S. Ruckman came into the world in 1921 in the state of Delaware to a family strongly steeped in the tradition of the military. His great grandfather was an army general in the Civil War. His grandfather was a general in World War I, and his father was a Colonel in World War II. After being raised in Topeka, Kansas, Pete was heading the same way … to an army career. But as God would have it … and by a long hard road … in “the school of hard knocks” … sin was taking its toll in Peter Ruckman’s life. God in his mercy (Yea, in God’s GREAT mercy) sent Hugh Pyle into Peter S. Ruckman’s life. It was at the radio station in Pensacola, Florida, in 1949 where the Gospel of Jesus Christ was heard by faith as clear as a bell in Pete’s heart, and Jesus Christ came into the poor sinner’s heart of a 27-year-old-man."

"Brother Ruckman received his Bible education at Bob Jones University receiving his degrees at the top of his class. Dr. Bob Jones, Sr., was still around in those days, and Peter loved this member of the Old Guard from the early 20th century. Bob Jones, Sr., was of the same stock of evangelists and preachers as J. Frank Norris, Billy Sunday, and Lester Roloff.

These men were not smooth, educated men. They were all rough cut, and they all believed that the A.V. 1611 English Bible was to be preached and was to be taught as the very word of God from cover to cover. Bob Jones, Sr., considered Peter S. Ruckman to be the brightest student to ever graduate from his college and wanted him to stay on staff and TEACH. Brother Ruckman declined, thinking that God wanted him to be an evangelist, not a TEACHER.

So, from that point, many of the hills and ridges of North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama were to be his FIELD. Peter trudged door to door to see the folks where they were and he preached Christ. God honored this and many were saved, BUT God had other plans for Peter S. Ruckman.

In the 1960’s, this evangelist would pastor the Brent Baptist Church in Pensacola, Florida, and start another in the decade to follow, the Bible Baptist Church. But what God really wanted Pete to do was TEACH young men to become Bible-believing pastors, evangelists, missionaries and church workers. In 1964, Brother Ruckman started Pensacola Bible Institute to train men to believe, and preach, and teach the BOOK. The FRUIT is evidence! “Ye shall know them by their fruits”!

The graduates of P.B.I. have gone to the four corners of the earth as pastors, and associate pastors, as missionaries and as evangelists. The proof is in the pudding! The Lord has honored this man of God despite the name-calling brethren. The name-calling that Pete has had to do was not the personal variety, but where some educator, some scholar or some Diotrephes stepped over the line by tearing down the faith in the BOOK of a young man or a young woman, who were brought up to believe in the BOOK as the word of God. Then, in a military-like stance, Brother Ruckman would give them BOTH BARRELS! The LORD Jesus Christ has given Peter S. Ruckman A FULL CUP! "

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]
