The Four foundational truths
…earnestly contend for “The Faith” which was once delivered unto the saints. Jude 3
The “once delivered” is referring to “God’s Revelation of Himself delivered once and only once to the children of God”, (He is not speaking of our own personal activity of believing).
The Revelation of God:
The revelation that Jesus Christ came in the flesh, and is the way, the truth and the life is that message of the “Faith” that is almost lost of God’s message in our time.
“If the Foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Psalm 11:3
If we loose “The Faith”, (our ability to perceive the message, God’s truth, His revelation of Himself), If the foundations are destroyed – the righteous can do nothing! If we cannot perceive God accurately we will not have the ability to know, follow, or present the Truth of God to mankind.
“All things were created by God and for God.” Colossians 1:16-18
This is one of the most God - centered simple statements in the entire Bible - everything exists for God.

This is the challenge:
Without a clear foundational understanding of God, we cannot know if what we are believing and acting on denies or promotes the Person of God, His Eternal Purpose, or His program to accomplish His Eternal Purpose.
“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” John 17:3
God’s foundational truths are vital and essential for us to perceive God accurately, being sensitive to His Spirit leading us, and follow Him each day of our lives.
