“AN,…UNRELENTING,…DIAGNOSIS!”…

Some sins are clear and recognizable, and evangelicals are quick to label them,…as evil; and condemn participation in them. Rarely do we see greed, as a horrific sin. The term “greed” means simply “a consuming desire to have more” it has the nuance of a grasping for more, a lust to acquire. It’s the very opposite of the contentment that accompanies,…true godliness!...(please see, 1st Timothy 6:6).

We miss the point, however,…if we; see covetousness as an issue of amount, and not of attitude. The poorest person can be greedy. The richest, is able and can on the other hand,…avoid greed, as well. But, the danger of possessions,…is that; we often arouse the desire for more. Greed, is no laughing matter. It’s in fact, idolatry…(please read, Colossians 3:5). Our Lord Jesus, leaves no doubt…(see, Luke 12:15). His Father alone, (Almighty-God) is the source of our life,…controlling and giving it; to whom He pleases!...

We should not miss, our Lord’s point. Solomon tells us that, it is a gift of God…(read, Ecclesiastes 3:13). Our apostle Paul tells us that, our gracious God…(see, 1st Timothy 6:17). It is right, to enjoy what we have,…it is wrong, however; to believe that self-indulgent pleasures, are the goal of this present life. Many today, believe that their wealth,…makes them masters; both of the present, and of the future!...

Still others say, “if money can’t buy happiness, it can at least buy,…pleasure and security.” But, in a moment,…the bubble-bursts. And our living God passes sentence, not only on the rich fool,…but; on every life based on covetousness. “You Fool” the diagnosis is unrelenting, in its honesty and most revealing,…in its insights!...

This very night, (my dear reader and friends); your life may be demanded from you. Then who will get, what you have prepared for yourself,…for so long; who will reap, the fruit of your labor,…who: will have cared, how many drops of sweat has ever trickled,…from your brow?... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“AND-SO,…I-DO!”…

Today, I pray,…”Dear Jesus restore unto me the Joy,…of Your Salvation; and uphold me with Your-Free-Spirit!”…. To know that Salvation,…is of our Lord; and to be filled with the Spirit and neither grieve, nor quench this Fire,…is to truly know; a Joyful, free and elated,…Life!....

Happy, is the individual,…or assembly; who are in,…such a state. We, are those,…Joyfully looking forward; and Victoriously endeavoring,…into the Glorious-Appearing: of our Lord and Saviour,…Jesus-Christ!....

Today, I write,…to you; in view of the modern charismatic-era where-in, there is much,…misuse and abuse: of Spiritual-Gifts. Please pray for me, as I shall keep you (my dear reader and friend),…in mine!...

Where is the line between, showing Grace,…and making a stand?... How about to argue a point,…or be silent?... Jesus knows the value of a good question and the merits,…on each side of this line. Sometimes, they understood (Not) the sayings which He spoke to them!....(please read, Luke 2:50).

Thank our Living-God that, the Holy Spirit,…doesn’t have to let it stay,…that way. And now,…I commend you to God and the Word of His Grace; which is able to build,…you up. And to give you, an inheritance among all them,…which are Sanctified (those set-apart, ones)!....

All the labor, all the Love, and all the tears,...eventually we just,…Leave-it-with-God. (“AND-SO,…I DO”)!.... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“WORDS,…AS-THEY,…REALLY-ARE!”…

The people who are putting everything, into Christ’s undertakings,…are; getting out of life, its simplest and most priceless,…rewards. My spirit and my conscience, remain precious and important,…to my Lord. Who of you, will embrace this opportunity?... Undoubtedly there’s power in renunciation. My strength doesn’t stand on what, I say no,…to; but my power lies, on whom I say yes,…to!...

Words can wound and even kill. But sometimes they break through pretense and expose things, as they really are. Truth in labeling, is sometimes an act of love,… a harsh kindness; we must hear. High on the list of hurtful names, is the word “fool”,…especially when it is used; by Almighty-God!... To be a fool, in His eyes,…is to; have missed the point of this present life.

The remarkable thing is that, the person our living God calls a fool,…we often; would very well call, a true success,…a person: to be completely envied. We have been nurtured, in a society that seduces,…with the promise of affluence; and measures worth, on the basis of possessions,…and positions!...

At some point, a follower of Jesus,…crosses; the line into enemy territory. He forces all of us, to face some searching questions,…about ourselves. Undoubtedly we value the fruits of being, well-to-do and successful. Could it be, that Jesus detests what,…I aspire to?... He has a very painful way, of probing the central nervous system of lives,…doesn’t He?... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!..

“I’M,…UNCONDITIONALLY,…COMMITTED!”…

There’s a price to be paid. Renunciation is a costly act for those of us, who love the “stuff” of this present life. It’s also a continual act. The things we own, often come to own,…us. Discipleship involves a daily act, of signing away ownership. We, the believers,…function; as the salt of this earth…(please see, Matthew 5:13). We are our Lord’s intended moral preservatives, and seasoning agents for this World!...

The essence of our saltiness, is our commitment to Christ-Jesus,…as our Lord!... Without discipleship, the Christian is salt-less,…salt; useless to achieve divine objectives. Our usefulness depends on our spiritual distinctiveness, and our distinctiveness is our unqualified,…commitment; to our Saviour. Disciples are not required to be smart, gifted or rich,…but; they do need to be loyal and unconditionally committed to,…Jesus!...

Count the cost. Are you building carelessly, or carefully?... Consider the consequences, are you choosing actively,…or drifting dangerously?... Most people are not satisfied, with the permanent out-put,…of their lives. Nothing can wholly satisfy, the life of Christ,…within His followers; except the adoption of Jesus’ purposes, toward our World.

Fame, pleasure and riches,…are but; husks and actions, in contrast with the boundless,…and abiding Joy: of working with our Saviour, for the fulfillment of His Father’s eternal plans!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“DEMANDING,…YET,…SATISFYING!”…

I gamble everything in this present life, on my Lord,…Jesus!... Wise people do not make such choices, impulsively or recklessly. Besides, impulsive commitment will almost certainly,…lack endurance. Discipleship is not a casual or an occasional activity. Enthusiasm for it, is important. But, that will be insufficient to sustain a man and/or woman,…plodding; under the burden of the cross!...

Discipleship is an exciting adventure, but it is also a draining,…and demanding lifestyle. Warfare looks thrilling, in the movies,…it looks; very different from the trenches. Count the cost, it’s no small matter,…to build; a life for Jesus. If it’s foolish, to begin without counting the cost,…it’s disastrous; to delay one’s choice, without considering the consequences!...

One thing we don’t have is limitless time to ponder. We all must, weigh the risks,…make our choice; and then live, with the consequences. If battle, means defeat,…then; delay in seeking peace, will be catastrophic. One way or another, choice is inevitable. Not to decide, is to choose not to become,…one of His own. It’s to default, on participating in His mission,…and; sharing His Victories!...

Paradoxically, it’s to say no,…to life itself…(please see, Luke 9:24). My life as a disciple, is extremely demanding,…but; it’s also infinitely satisfying!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

"WORDS...OF...WISDOM"

Remember, every time you open your mouth, in the presence of a person who has an abundance of knowledge,…what you're doing; is externalizing to such person, the exact amount of knowledge,…or lack of it: which you, yourself may possess.

It is characteristically true, that people who possess a..."thin-veneer"; regarding their educational or cultural importance, typically are found trying to give the impression,…that; they have much knowledge. Such people usually talk too much, and listen to little. He or she, who flees my advice,…the very same; often don’t enjoy following, in my footsteps.

Anyone who has not experienced, what I have in this present-age,…is likely; to not read my advice. No one individual, (whether male and/or female) has sufficient experience, education, innate ability, and knowledge,…to ensure the accumulation; of great wealth, be it with words and/or deeds,…without: the cooperation of others! ...

Our immediate culture, possesses a potential-power,…of becoming greater than others; only when organized, in definite plans of action,…and is directed: towards an agreed upon, objective. Lack of loyalty is one of the great causes, of failure; in our present way of life. We tend (Not), to despise all of our ill-vices,…but, rather; we despise most, all those who hold ... no virtues.

When fanatics, reach other gangrenous brains,…the disease is almost, incurable. The Atheist is preferable, to the fanatic; because it obeys to some degree, his or her own conscience,…to do good; more often than not. Whereas the latter, tends to end up often able,…even; to kill! ...

A generous heart, is defined as one who is winning,…others; with much affection. There is a certain pleasure in reproaching, an ingrate person; as they favor those, only whom they dispense-daily. The highest price, that one can pay,…for any one thing; is to ask for it,...by saying, please!... Let us never change, our Christian-Faith,…for any disbelief; let the beautiful things of Christ-Jesus, meet us in the middle,…of this road: we all call, Life!...

No incredulous and/or bad argument, could ever truly support,…God’s Truth!.... True-Happiness does not consist, in many possessed things,…but; in the way, we enjoy them,…though less: than first imagined. Life, it teaches us,…that; we cannot be truly happy, but at the price,…of some: ignorance. Many are those, who do not understand,…because; they themselves are not looking, for more ... happiness!...

The first teacher of philosophy, which took humanity by complete surprise,…was that old-serpent; (Lucifer) himself!... Paradise, and Philosophy,…are nothing but; common-sense in costume, leisurely-labeled. The great fortunes, which come suddenly,…always bring; some suspicion.

Many believe in a blind fortune, which ordinarily becomes blind,…to those; who caress-this-concept, the most. Glory, to many,…is like a poison; to be taken in small-doses. Glory, is like working in the kitchen,…where; we should not always, see the manipulations necessary,…for the preparing: of our plates.

Who could ever deny, that even Glory,…is more than a mere exaltation-of-sorts; but that it rather, suits us just fine,…as our ultimate award. Lucky-lads indeed, we are,...but; to receive its virtue! ....
Seldom, are any thanks given,…even; when we receive, what we do not deserve. Gratitude for the good, we receive from the hands of others,…often seems; to demand of us, resignation for the evils,…that these same, initial-hands: have committed, in secret,…prior to giving, to us.

Whoever wants in this life, all things to their total and complete liking,…will have; much to contend with, regarding various untold troubles,...in due-time!...
Severe it is, judging a father,…his son; (as it was, with God and His only begotten). But, never is it, as severe as a child,…judging; his or her own, father or mother. Yes, our children, tend to sweeten penalties,…but; they also make, more bitter misfortunes. Your children are not yours, to call. They are children, of this present-life.

They do not come from you, but enter through you,…into this present-realm; and though they are with you, they do not belong to anyone,…really: except to our Father-in-Heaven!...
You may give them your love, but not your,…thoughts. You may house their bodies, but not their souls,…because they live, in the house; of tomorrows, where you cannot visit,…even in your wildest and surrealist-dreams. You can make an effort, to be like them,…but; seek not to make them, like unto thee,…because; life goes not backward, nor tarries,...in yesterdays.

We are but, the Archers,…of which; our children are as, living arrows,…launched. So, let the tilt in your hand,…arch-highest; toward their own happiness, and not just always,…towards: your own! .... Amen.

Your friend and brother in Christ Jesus;
Cooperating with Divine-knowledge:
Alongside our King, in His Cause!...

Your Friend,
Izzy! ...

“FACING,…WHATEVER,…COMES!"...

I am dabbling in fiction,…but, it’s not a major part; of my postings. I’ve begun to realize,…however; that this style of writing, can truly carry-out my intended purpose,…very effectively, through fiction; since, Christian fiction novels,…speak to the heart: rather than,…to the head.

Fiction,…is entertaining. Well-written fiction, is gripping. As readers, we’ll stay up until 2:00 a.m.,…to finish; a good novel. But, I have a greater goal,…than simply entertaining my readers!...

I want to help you,…grow; Spiritually!... I recognize that authors, (in general); have something of a bully-pulpit, for communicating their World-views,…and values: to their readers. But with that opportunity,…comes; a danger. Just what World-view and values,…is an author; communicating?...

At best, most contemporary novelists,…present a wishy-washy; World-view!...

At worst, they sow negative values,…and unhealthy attitudes, in the hearts; of: their readers. I desire personally, to set a whole new standard,…for fiction. I want to use my talents, to communicate my Faith values,…to my readers.

I’m blown-away, by the Power,…of Jesus’ story; as I’m transported back, to the first-century. To Jerusalem, Germania, Rome and Ephesus. I live with Christ, as He struggles,…to live-out; His Faith in the midst, of pagan societies!...

I feel the terror, of His enemies,…as He faced, His foes; in various arenas. Above all, through Jesus’ experiences,…I’ve learned; countless lessons of courage. I trust that my passages, will speak to your heart,,,,as Jesus-of-Nazareth; has spoken to mine and to millions, of other faithful-followers,…and readers: of God’s-Word!...

My goal, is not to offend anyone,…who doesn’t share, my belief in Jesus, (The Son-of-God). But, at the same time,…I no longer hesitate; nor find myself,…keeping silent!...

I’ve been a frustrated coward,…long-enough. Today, I go on a quest,…seeking the same level of Faith; as our martyrs-of-old. Courage is not something, we can manufacture,…by our own efforts. But, when we surrender,…whole-heartedly; to Almighty-God, (His Father, in Heaven),…He then: gives us the necessary courage, to (“FACE,…WHATEVER,…COMES”)!... Amen.

Your friend,

Izzy!...

“COME,…BE-MY,…FRIEND”…

In the midst of my own battles, with bitter losses,…I have also gained; significant blessings with friends like you (dear reader); yes, you my most unlikely of sources. True-friends are friends, of the heart,…indeed.

I speak of those few, whose devotion and compassion,…care and concerns for us; outweigh their concern for themselves. Many people find themselves fortunate, to have one or two,…true-friends; in their entire life-time!...

Some, don’t have,…even that. These very same, live much of their lives,…in isolation; feeling alone, even while in the presence of a crowd. Perhaps this is true, because we often view friendship,…through; the wrong end of the telescope. Instead of entering into a friendship, to see what we can give,…or; what we can do, for another person,…our tendency is to; measure and weigh the value, of a relationship,…by what: we can gain, from it!...

To have friends, you must first of all,…show yourself; to be friendly!...(please see, Proverbs 18:24)… We cannot be self-centered and full of self-pity,…if we want real friends; because that attitude will prevent us, from giving ourselves away. My point is simple, we have to be willing to,…give of ourselves; to be a friend. Once we learn this, we will begin to see,…the true comfort; and encouragement, real friendships,…bring!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

(“DEAR-READER,…AND,…FRIENDS”)!...

Dear-reader and friends, please show me where our Bible says,..."Jesus is God!"... When many were murmuring regarding who Jesus was, many thought He was "Elijah", who had returned from the dead. Others, still believed that,…He was simply a Great Teacher and/or Prophet.

But, when Jesus approached our apostle Peter, and asked Him directly,..."Peter, who do you,...think; that I am?"... our apostle Peter, then responded,..."You are the Messiah, the Anointed One, the Son of our living-God!"...

And, then,…Jesus commended Peter, for his answer,...because; Peter had been enlightened by our Father-in-Heaven, with this truth. Peter, did (Not) say,..."You Jesus, are God!"... Yet, Jesus only praised Peter,...for getting it right; for answering correctly. Let's be clear on one thing, I'm (Not) re-writing history here, nor am I attempting to change the Bible.

I am though, wanting to bring others,...to the point; that they begin to reflect, question, examine themselves and what their preachers are erroneously leading them, to believe.

You see, institutional religion, is what Jesus was against,...from the very beginning. He's become a "stumbling-block" even among, the brethren of this Faith. There's much division, and very little real unity between us. ...

("If you've seen Me, you've seen the Father")!... Here, Jesus is expressing Himself, in a figurative-manner. The very word of ("if"); denotes questionable standings. It’s a word, that in it of itself,…is mostly; a matter of circumstance, in any given sentence we utter. It’s not an emphatic, bold, nor firm statement. Think about this folks, we have the word (“if”),…even in the very center; of our word, (“Life”)…

You see, my dear brothers and sisters-in-Christ,...many still today; don't see Jesus, for what He truly is; (there’s an old saying, that goes like this; “I can’t see the trees, for the forest is in the way”); Jesus remains today, our Mediator between our Creator and us, our High-Priest, our Intercessor in prayers, our King who shall rule and lord over us, in His Father's-Kingdom!... (And, presently He stands at the right-hand of God; Jesus is (Not) on God’s own Throne!)…

The right-hand of God Almighty, is indeed a very Powerful position,…to occupy. As God’s right-hand-man, Jesus is second in command,…only; to our Creator, Himself!... Jesus is the Word, and/or the very spokesperson, who in a perfect and flawless manner,…He; represents His Father-in-Heaven!...

Satan, once a great "Angel-of-Light"; works in very subtle ways, and is ever present, even in the translating and the rewriting of our Scriptures,…throughout the ages. It's not so much, that God's-Word is indeed, infallible,...it's more so, that; humanity throughout the ages, has plugged in their own versions, all to suit their hidden agendas, to lure the masses into their religious institutions.

Ours, is (Not) an all tolerable Faith,…as many of today’s, modern (“Inter-Faith-Groups”),…would have you believe. God hates, idolatry; yet Catholicism and its many, “knock-off”, branches thereof,…have perverted the real truth of our Holy-Scriptures.

I insist that, God's own Holiness,…is what impedes us humans; from otherwise being present (de-facto), with our Creator.

To not believe, that mankind has not attempted to delve his hands,…into the original, manuscripts; is to border arrogance and ignorance. Even our Bible, is not a complete and total representation,…of all that was ever written; regarding the things-of-God!... It was decided, by kings-of-old,…what was; and what wasn’t to be included and bound,…within this precious Book!...

Yet, mankind believes himself,…to have figured-out; our otherwise immeasurable God, our unfathomable Creator,…our unconfined: Supreme-Being!... (Jehovah and/or Yahweh, His Precious and Holy-Name)…

Folks, the very moment we start believing that we have God,…figured-out; is the very moment, we begin to develop a sense of complacency,…that: truly hinders our further reverencing, and stuns any further potential,…for spiritual-growth!... Amen.

God has always worked, through others, (Prophets, the Holy-Spirit, His Son and the like); to reach-out to mankind. But, no human-being has ever seen God, (other than Adam and Eve), and lived to tell about it. Sure, there are a limited few mentioned in Scripture,…that; walked with God, and indeed saw Him,…but: all was done, in the Spirit,…of things. And, (Not) in a “De-facto”,…manner.

Another fine example of "figurative-speech", is when Jesus says that,..."The Father and I, are One!"...

Yes, indeed,...One-in-Spirit; One in mindset, One in wanting all to come to repentance and be Saved,...One-in-Unity!... Yet, we all have our unique and proper place, in this Universe, even our own “Crown-of-Glory”, is promised. And just remember always, to identify who,…is saying what; before we begin to take a stance, on what we are to believe.

When we see Jesus, expressing Himself,…by saying emphatically,…("My Father is Greater, than I"); well, this leaves no room for any guess work,…in my eyes. If the Son-of-God, tells me that His Father is (“Greater”),…than Him,…either we believe Him; or we don’t!... That decision, is left up to you,…(dear-reader and friends).

Many, may have indeed perceived our Jesus, to be as if here were,...a god; after all, no one else has been able to replicate His deeds. But, metaphors verses literal language, and who is saying what,...is part of our daily challenge; we must continue to prayerfully seek, for clarity in our Lord's Light,…which ultimately dispels: all confusion...Amen.

Folks, by visiting my site,…you will then; be able to really recognize my stance on this subject-matter. God Bless You, and again thank you for your time spent,…in reading; this lengthy passage!... Praise God, and to Him be all the Glory,...forever and ever; Amen!...

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“WHAT-A-TRUE-FRIEND,…MEANS-TO-ME”…

In times of blessings, we need to focus,…on our living God; the very One who provides, and not just on the provisions themselves. The stability we find in His Son (our Christ-Jesus); can calm our troubled hearts, in times of translation,…change and fear: of all the unknowns.

The character of a true-friend, is the character of a giver,…and that kind of friend; in itself is, one of the greatest gifts,…we: could ever receive. A true-friend is a gift from Almighty-God.

Tell me (dear reader and friends); who are you, God’s gift to?... Allow the creativity of our Heavenly-Father, through His Son,…to; surprise you. He can provide and deliver, in ways that are,…beyond; our wildest imaginations. Even in the most difficult times, of our present life,…we can; be confident in the never-failing, goodness of our Maker!...

This is a valuable reminder. Just as there are no insignificant people, in the Body-of-Christ,…so there are; no insignificant ministries, if they are performed in Jesus’,…Name!... Today, I embrace my ministry, one dedicated to all the forgotten. And in turn, I know that,…my faithfulness; will never be forgotten, by my Heavenly-Father!...

To be able to cross ethnic and racial barriers, with the Grace of the Son-of-God,…is not as easy; as it sounds. Both sides carry presuppositions, whether accurate or inaccurate,…about the other. Both sides have nagging doubts, even fears,…about the other.

Both sides carry a certain amount, of baggage,…based on; what they have felt, heard, seen, experienced,…or: supposed. And fighting through all that emotional baggage, is only part of the problem!...

A person must first, be willing to commit to this fight!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“INVESTING,…ETERNALLY!”…

Today, I tell a story,…of a man; shipwrecked on a lonely, unknown Island. To his surprise, he found that he was not alone. A large tribe of people,…shared his Island. To his pleasure, he discovered that,…they; treated him very well. In fact, they placed him on a Throne,…and; catered to his every desire.

He was delighted, but perplexed. Why such royal treatment?... As his ability to communicate increased, he discovered that,…the tribal custom; was to choose a King, for a year!...

Then, when his term was finished,…he would be; transplanted to a particular Island, and abandoned. Delight was now replaced by, distress. Then, he hit on a shrewd,…plan. Over the next months, he sent members of the tribe,…to clear and till; the other Island. He had them build a beautiful house, furnish it and plant crops.

He sent some chosen friends, to live there and wait,…for him. Then, when his time of exile came,…he was put; in a place, carefully prepared and full of friends,…delighted: to receive him!...

We disciples, are not headed,…to; a desert Island, but to our Father’s Home,…where: there are many Mansions. Yet, the preparations we make here,…follow us there. If we are shrewd, there will be eternal friends,…and; eternal rewards to greet us.

Fools, serve money,…and; leave it all, behind. Shrewd believers, serve the Son-of-God,…Christ-Jesus; and invest in eternity!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“FROM-SPIRITUAL,…TO-PHYSICAL”…

Friends, the coming Kingdom-of-God, (Jehovah, His Glorious-Name); involves the restoring of God’s own Government!...(this is a Hierarchy, and not a Democracy). And, it shall be placed,…over, our present; system-of-things!...

And, this Kingdom-of-God,…also promises; to oust Satan, from his earthly-throne!...

The Son-of-God, (Jesus-of-Nazareth); was commissioned by His own God, and Father-in-Heaven,…to build: One-Church!... And, to pay-in-full, (according to God’s own, set-forth-terms); the ransom-price, for our kidnapped,…world!...

This is why, we-who-believe, (Jesus-Faithful-Followers); are willing slaves, (servants),…unto: our only Master!...(the very Son-of-God). Our Lord, (to whom, we are indebted); came to Earth, to call a remnant-class of people,…out: of this present, system-of-things!...

And, Jesus has been appointed, (by His Father); to prepare, to teach and to be Ruled,…under Him: His Father’s, chosen-ones. It is the Throne-of-David, which Jesus shall preside over,…in the; not-too-distant future…(read, Luke 1:31-33).

Let’s remember, also,…that, our Jesus; was tempted, while He lived on Earth!...

And, the Most-High-God,…whom, we worship; by contrast, cannot ever be,…tempted. This proves one-thing, (once-again), that Father-and-Son,…are indeed: two-separate entities. Each, deserving their own Honor-and-Glory!...

Folks, I write these words,…as the Spirit, leads. And, (Not), as I,…well please. In, (Ephesians 3:19); it is revealed that, God is truly the One,…who created: all-things. Friends, this includes Jesus,…being, also; created by the same God, as we humans,…were!...

God, uses Jesus,…as His, spokesman, (The Word); and as His, handi-worker. God, designs all-things, (as the Engineer and/or Architect); and Jesus, functions as God’s own,…General-Contractor!...(if you will). Yes, collectively they are always creating-and-doing!...

(“FROM-SPIRITUAL,…TO-PHYSICAL”)…

Jesus, even today,…Obeys the Father; completely. He is seated, at the right-hand of His Father’s-Throne!... Jesus-of-Nazareth, is (Not),…on God’s own, Throne!... Therefore, He cannot be,…God, Himself; as so many, for centuries on end,…have erroneously, taught.

Please read, (Revelation 22:3)…

Clearly, there will be two Thrones,…operating from within; the very walls of our New-Jerusalem, promised. A Throne for Almighty-God, and a Throne for Jesus,…who, Himself; shall be also, given a New-Name,…at that, time-and-place!...

That’s-right!... Many, shall be the things made,…anew; the end of this known, dispensation of time,…will usher-in: new-beginnings in the eternity, to come. God’s-Law, (meanwhile); requires Death, as the penalty for our sins!...

And, the Dead,…know, nothing-at-all; until the Great-Day of Judgment!...

Where, all who have ever lived, (including the Angelic-Realm); shall be subject to, God’s own,…Judgment. Fallen-Angels, who have been chained,…will also, be condemned; to an eternity of Damnation, (if there is no repentance, on their part)!...

As for us, humans,…we will be, Resurrected, (as Jesus, was); the righteous are promised, eternal-life. Those who, (despite all future manifestations), remain purposely defiant and unruly,…God, shall Judge; accordingly!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“TRANSCENDING,…THE,…SUBLIME!”…

God, grant me the serenity to accept,…the things; I cannot change!...

The courage to change, the things I can. And, the wisdom to know,…the difference!...

Friends, make yourself familiar with the Angels,…and behold them, frequently; in Spirit!... For, without being seen, they are present with you-and-me.

Folks, please come-to-know that,…Jesus; will indeed Rule, over the New-Earth promised,…but; just like every nation, governs through vast organizations,…of others: the Son-of-God, Jesus-of-Nazareth,…will need you, as well…

Jesus, was not to,…”Save-the-World”; while Satan still sits on his, Earthly-Throne,…deceiving: millions. The Son-of-God, will save-the-world,…at His; second-coming, when Satan shall be,…put-away: for 1,000 years!...

Jesus, came to announce the future establishment of,…His Father’s-Kingdom!...

Jesus, resisted-and-conquered Satan. And, now we, (His Faithful-Followers); must also qualify, to rule with,…Jesus!... Among other things, Jesus came to,…”Call-Out”; of this present world, His Church, (a many-member-body). Let’s remember that, this is the most fundamental truth. Jesus’ own life, is much greater in value,…than-that; of all humanity!... (collectively).

We were freed, from the Death penalty,…by; the shed-and-atoning blood, of God’s own Son!... Where the first Adam, had failed,…Jesus, (known also, as the second Adam); succeeded in qualifying, for the future restoring of God’s-Divine-Government!...(that New-Jerusalem, promised; right-inside His Father’s-Kingdom)…

Jesus, prepared the very foundations of His Church!...

He chose Peter, and the other original 11 Apostles. Jesus, became founder and Head. Also known as, the,…”Chief-Corner-Stone!”…(read, Ephesians 2:19-21; 5:23). Jesus, began proclaiming the gospel-message,…His own God; had sent-down, with Jesus!...

The Son, was His Father’s Messenger!...(read, Malachi 3:1). The Son, preached the,…”Good-News”; of the yet-future, establishment on Earth,…of God’s own Government. And, it shall, (sooner-than-later); replace the present, evil-world of,…Satan!...

Immense crowds, followed Jesus and His,…disciples. Jewish rulers and their chief-priests, completely misunderstood and misinterpreted,…Jesus’ gospel-message. It was the timing, and the nature of that Kingdom,…which the Pharisees; scribes and Sadducees, misunderstood!...

The Pharisees, included unscrupulous,…politicians. They feared being accused of sedition-and-disloyalty, by the Romans. So, they opposed-and-denounced,…Jesus-of-Nazareth!... The Pharisees, knew that Jesus was the,…prophesied Messiah!...

But, they understood only to be,…One; Messianic appearance!...

And, they supposed that,…Jesus; was planning to over-throw, the Roman-Empire,…then-and-there. Jesus knew that, the Kingdom-of-God, (ruling over all-nations); could not be set-up, until the time of the,…”New-Spirit-Birth!”…

Yes, until-and-after,…our own; Resurrection!... Nicodemus, was another who did not understand,…this. He knew that, being-born,…was; an actual-birth. Yes, parturition from the womb,…of a given mother. Many, still today,…deny, a real; “second-birth”. Folks, we shall all become,…spirit-beings. For, flesh-and-blood cannot ever inherit,…this; Kingdom-of-God!... Amen.

Millions, have spiritualized away,…this real-truth; by assuming that, by merely saying,…”We accept Christ, as our Saviour”: that-this in itself, constitutes being,…(“Born-Again”)!...

In this, Satan has deceived the masses,…for centuries, now. Our first-birth, was of,...”water”; and our second-birth, shall be of,…”The-Spirit!”… An incorruptible composition, no longer corruptible nor liable to decay nor to,…Death!...

We existed 9 months, completely submerged in our mother’s-womb, (in a substance called, synovial-fluid); prior to our physical-birth, into this fleshly-estate. But, at our promised Resurrection,…our body-composition; shall be that of, “Spirit!”… We shall be, as Christ-Jesus!...

Transcending walls, (if necessary); as He did, in that,…”upper-room!”… Yes, dear-reader and friends,…eternity, itself; (“TRANSCENDS-THE-VERY,…SUBLIME-AND-SURREAL”)!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“TO-YOU,…THE,…PRE-DESTINED!”…

Friends, Jesus-of-Nazareth,…compared; being, “Born-Again”,…to the invisible wind!...

Yes, “That which is born of the Spirit, is indeed,…Spirit!”…(read, John 3:8).

So, first,…we are born-of-water; through our mother’s-womb, we remain approx.. 9 months,…submerged totally: in synovial-fluid. Then, after the Death of our fleshly-estate,…we are all; going to be, Resurrected!...(or born-of-the-Spirit).

We shall be transformed, into immortal-beings,…incorruptible; transcending all that we, could have ever imagined to be,…sublime-and-surreal…(read, John 3:3-6). And for those, of you who believe that,…we ascend to Heaven; immediately upon our Death, please read what Jesus said to,…Nicodemus: a well-known Pharisee!...(read, John 3:13).

That’s-right, folks!... “No one has ascended into Heaven, except He, (meaning Jesus); who descended from Heaven!...

You see, dear-reader and friends,…we, humans; descended directly from Adam. Whereas, Jesus-of-Nazareth,…descended directly from; His own God and Father-in-Heaven!...(Jehovah, His Precious-Name). The difference is very clear.

We were created, by God,…born of; mankind’s own seed. Jesus, was actually sired-by-God!... He’s a direct-descendant of our Creator!... Whereas, we are,…(Not)!... Yes, we were indeed made in God’s own image, (or semblance); we humans, indeed mirror the spiritual-realm,…in many ways.

The promised, Kingdom-of-God,…will, (Not); be composed of mortal-beings. For, no flesh-and-blood can enter into this,…promised Kingdom!...(read, 1st Corinthians 15; 45-50). The erroneous and popular belief, of our worldly-churches today,…is that; the Church-of-Christ, is synonymous with the,…Kingdom-of-God!...

But, again,…”Flesh-and-blood, (mortal-humans); cannot inherit the Kingdom-of-God!...(read, 1st Corinthians 15:50)…

This, I fear the,…most. That this true, Church-of-Christ,…plays, no part; in people’s personal-lives. The very things, of our living-God,…are not conscious; in the hearts-and-minds, of millions who call themselves,…the religious!...

Only, far-back in the subconscious recesses,…of many-minds; may lie the dormant supposition, of God’s own existence. He’s simply, not real,…to many-of-you. This means, also,…that; the average person, has no conception of what,…he-or-she, is; or of any purpose or real meaning, for his-or-her,…being alive!...

Bear in mind, this one-thing. In order for the Son-of-God, (Jesus-of-Nazareth); to restore God’s own Government, over the New-Earth promised,…He; will need under Him, an organized personnel of Faithful-Followers!...

This, Church-of-Christ,…then; shall consist of those who, have rejected Satan’s false-ways,…having proved, their loyalty: to our Creator’s, set-forth principles. We are, that useful instrument,…converting the world; from sin, to God’s own Righteousness!...

It means, instilling that perfect spiritual-character,…found only; in His Son!...

Yes, we are that necessary instrumentality,…preparatory to bringing; Salvation to the whole, of humanity. So, tell me, (dear-reader and friends); who of you, are part of these predestined,…and: called-out-ones?... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...
