  BIBLE TRUTH  . . .  10 Essential Facts    

 

THERE IS ONLY ' ONE ' GOD

Jesus taught that ' KNOWING & UNDERSTANDING ' God is ESSENTIAL to life eternal

 

And this is life eternal , that they might know Thee ,  the  ' ONLY '  true God ,

  and  Jesus Christ  whom Thou hast sent  -  John 17v3

 

The word " Trinity " and the phrases " God the Son " and " God the Holy Spirit " are  NEVER  found in the Bible.  Many  falsely  teach that it is " a great mystery "  an claim " it CANNOT be explained or understood or known "

THE BIBLE IS GOD'S MESSAGE

The Bible tells of God's plan for mankind & His instructions about what we must do

 

All scripture is given by inspiration of God  &  is profitable for doctrine , for reproof ,

for correction , for instruction in righteousness  -  2 Timothy 3v16

 

Jesus stated that " they that worship Him MUST worship Him in spirit & in truth "  If salvation is based on our beliefs being true , why do so many teach that it DOESN'T matter what we believe ??

GOD HAS A PURPOSE

God wants people who show His character. His purpose with them is on the earth

 

But as truly as I live ,  all the earth shall be filled          

with the glory of the LORD  -  Numbers 14v21          

 

How can ' Heaven ' be the reward of those who are " good " when the Bible clearly teaches that " those that wait upon the Lord shall inherit the EARTH " ??  and that " the meek shall inherit the EARTH " ??

MAN IS MORTAL

" Immortal Soul " is NEVER mentioned in the Bible , yet it does state " the dead praise NOT the LORD "

The dead know not any thing , neither have they any more reward ; 

for the memory of them is forgotten . . . for there is no work , nor device ,

nor knowledge , nor wisdom , in the grave , whither thou goest  -  Eccles 9v5,10

Why do many teach that ' souls ' are never dying , when the Bible teaches that " the SOUL that sinneth , it SHALL die " and that even  " righteous souls die " and David stated that ' his soul ' could be " destroyed " ??

BAPTISM IS ESSENTIAL

If we understand God's message and believe in Him and His Son Jesus Christ , we MUST be baptised

 

He that believeth and is baptised shall be saved . . . but

he that believeth not shall be damned  -  Mark 16v16

 

Jesus Christ stated that he will only give " eternal salvation unto all them that OBEY him " which requires belief & baptism.  Will God give you eternal life without any effort on YOUR part ??

JESUS PROVIDES SALVATION

Salvation is based upon our belief in God & His Son Jesus Christ ... & upon true repentance

 

For God so loved the world , that He gave His only begotten Son , that whosoever

believeth in him should not perish , but have everlasting life  -  John 3v16

 

Many claim that Jesus died & washed all their sins away.  So why did the Apostle Peter state " REPENT & be BAPTISED everyone of you , in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins " ??  . . .  Baptism is essential

JESUS WILL RETURN TO EARTH

The Bible consistently talks about Jesus Christ returning to the earth at an appointed time

 

Ye men of Galilee , why stand ye gazing up into heaven ?  this same Jesus , which is taken up from you

into heaven , shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven  -  Acts 1v11

 

What good is it for people to be taken up to heaven  -  when they die  -  when the Bible teaches that those who  " serve the living and true God . . . WAIT for His son FROM heaven " ??

THE DEAD WILL BE RAISED

The ' hope ' of the faithful is NOT in going to heaven , but to be raised from the dead at Jesus' return

 

And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake , some to everlasting life

& some to shame & everlasting contempt  -  Daniel 12v2

 

Why do so many say those who die have ' gone to heaven ' when Jesus clearly taught that only those " accounted worthy " have a future  &  that their hope is to " obtain the resurrection "  ??

JESUS WILL BE KING ON EARTH

God's Kingdom will be ' ON EARTH ' when Jesus Christ returns to reign as the great King

 

He shall be great  &  shall be called the Son of the Highest ;  & the Lord God shall give unto him

the throne of his father David . . . of his kingdom there shall be NO END  -  Luke  1v32-33

 

Why do so many believe that our reward is in heaven , when the Bible states that Jesus will return to the earth  &  that then " the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord , & of his Christ "  ??

YOU & YOUR FAMILY . . . CAN BE INVOLVED !!!

God has a plan & a purpose , but He also has a timeline for it's fulfilment - our opportunity is NOW !!!

 

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise , as some men count slackness ;  but is long-suffering toward us ,

not willing that any should perish , but that all should come to repentance  -  2 Peter 3v9

 

God wants everyone to be saved . . . but ONLY if they are prepared to make an effort to  ' know & understand ' Him.   We have a choice.  Will we believe  &  obey before it's too late ??

   ISRAEL  . . .  10 Essential Facts    

 

ISRAEL . . . IS GOD'S ' CHOSEN ' PEOPLE

God declares that the nation of Israel is His chosen people

 

For you are a holy people to the LORD your God ,  the LORD your God has chosen you to be

a people for Himself ,  above all the peoples on the face of the earth  -  Deuteronomy 7v6

 

As a people , the Jews were ' chosen '  because of the promises that were made to the fathers of the nation of Israel ( Abraham, Isaac & Jacob ) which God swore by Himself " because he could swear by no greater " Hebrews 6v13

ISRAEL . . . WAS SCATTERED BY GOD

Israel was scattered by God because of their failure to lie up to the special status of being God's chosen nation

 

And the LORD will scatter you among all people , from the one end of the earth to the other  . . . 

&  among these nations you will find no ease  -  Deuteronomy 28v64-65

 

Even though God had driven the Jewish people out of the land of Israel ,  He would never completely forsake His people  &  promised to eventually bring them back into the land once more.

ISRAEL . . . REGATHERED BY GOD ( AFTER 2,000 YRS )

God's Promise to bring them back can be seen in the gradual return of the Jews to the ancient land of Israel from the late 1800's , culminating in the formal establishment of the modern nation of Israel in 1948

 

" For behold , the days are coming " says the LORD " that I will bring back from captivity My people Israel & Judah ...

 &  I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers  &  they shall possess it "  -  Jeremiah 30v3

 

After almost 2,000 years , they have returned from the four corners of the earth to occupy their ancient home-land that was promised to their fathers  , as prophesied throughout the Old Testament writings.

THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE BACK IN ISRAEL . . . TO STAY !!

Having wandered the earth ( as fore-told by the prophets ) the Jews' return against all odds shows God is behind their destiny

 

" I will plant them in their land.  And no longer shall they be pulled up from the land

that I have given them , says the LORD your God "  -  Amos 9v15

 

As God has fulfilled the prophecies of the return  &  the re-establishment of Israel , we can be assured those prophecies which are yet to be fulfilled , will also come to pass.

PROMISES TO ISRAEL . . . ARE PROMISES TO YOU !!!

God's promises made to the fathers of Israel also extend to non-Jewish people thro' association with the Lord Jesus Christ

 

" And if you are Christ's  ( ie. have taken on Christ )  then you are Abraham's seed

&  heirs according to the promise "  -  Galatians 3v29

 

To take on Christ , means that you believe the ' Gospel ' involving the things concerning personal salvation  &  the Kingdom , which Christ will establish at His return.  A person shows their acceptance of the Gospel by being ' baptised into His name '  &  thereby identifies with Jesus' death , burial & resurrection.

SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS

The Gospel is based on the promises made to Abraham , the father of the Jews , of whom Jesus was a direct descendant

 

And the scripture , foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles ( non-Jews ) by faith ;  preached the gospel

to Abraham beforehand , saying " In you are all the nations blessed "  -  Galatians 3v8

 

The benefits of the promises to Abraham , the father of the Jews , are extended to non-Jews who believe the Gospel through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  Jesus stated clearly that " Salvation is of the Jews "  John 4v22

JERUSALEM . . . WILL BE THE CENTRE OF THE FINAL GLOBAL CONFLICT

Before Jesus' return as the new King on Earth & takes all the world's nations as His own , there will be a final conflict , centred on Jerusalem

 

" For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem.  The city shall be taken ,

the houses rifled & the women ravished . . . "  -  Zechariah 14v2

 

Jersalem ( which means ' City of Peace ' ) will become the centre of a war to end all wars in a conflict that will involve all nations.  To end this war , God will intervene by sending His Son to assume rulership of the world  Rev11v15

JERUSALEM . . . TO BECOME THE ' CAPITAL OF THE WORLD ' !!!

Jerusalem will become the ' Capital of the World ' & fulfill it's name as a ' City of Peace '

 

" Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established

on the top of the mountains ... &  all nations shall flow unto it ... for out of Zion shall go forth the law 

&  the word of the LORD from Jerusalem "  -  Isaiah 2v2-3

 

With one king who will rule for the good of ALL people , all conflict  &  war will cease  &  there will be peace  &  prosperity for all.

PROMISES TO THE JEWISH FATHERS . . . ARE THE KEY

The key to understanding God's plan for the world & how you can be part of it is thro' understanding the great promises God made - soon to be fulfilled.

 

" At that time  ( before being baptised into Christ )  you were without Christ , being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel  &  strangers from the covenants of Promise , having no hope  &  without God in the world  -  Ephesians 2v12

 

To be part of the great promises to Abraham  &  his descendants , we must become followers of the Lord Jesus Christ thro' baptism , so that at His return , we will be among those who share in the fulfilment of the promises

THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW !!!

God has a timetable to fulfil all His promises & time is running out.

 

" God ... now commands all men everywhere to repent because He has appointed a day

in which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He ordained.

He has given assurance of this by raising Him from the dead "  -  Acts 17v30-31

 

Now is the time to understand God  &  His plan with our world & everyone in it.  In the same way that He has fulfilled His promise to bring the Jewish people back into the land of Israel , so He will also fulfil the promise of world peace & security with you in it.  Action is required of us today.  Find out more today , before it's too late.

      But the sinner being one hundred years old shall be accursed "  -    Isaiah 65v20      

 

Whilst there will be opportunity to live longer , God's attitude to disobedience to His Laws & ways  will not change.  Sin will still bring death ,  obedience will bring eternal life by His Grace  -  Romans 6v23

DEATH TO BE DESTROYED

At the end of the 1,000 Year reign of Christ , all enemies of God will be defeated & destroyed from the face of the earth
