“GARDENS,…OF,…ANTIQUITY!"…

I remember most keenly, the coldness of some so-called friends,...and their corrupt characters. In contrast, I shall remain firm,...toward my new-found Faith; though, I may still disappoint you,...in: many-other-ways!...

I like caring, for the young, old,...and help-less; and shall spare, my Heavenly-Father,... the wages of a shepherd; during these up-and-coming, winter holidays. On such days, from dawn-till-dark,…there shall be, bustle-and-commotion; renting the air, of our ancient towns!....

We, will jostle one another,...and grunt; inside these darken-enclosures. I hear God's own children, screaming,...from excitement; or could it be, that these noisy-slaps,...are being administered, simply-by: their very tired, mothers?...

In that Day, hawkers shall mingle,...with the crowds; and yell-out the charms, of their wares. Always a popular item, are fortune-telling books. I have a good mind, to forever stray away,…from these, very same; whom my God, completely abhors!....

Claim your treasures, as I have. Captivated, I am,...as I look upon this; Promised-Paradise. I imagine myself, wandering through its,…(“GARDENS,…OF,…ANTIQUITY”)!…

I pray,…”That you be able, to share this feeling,…with me. Jesus, our chosen-and-destined,...Christ!... What a Great-Symbol, of the past,...yes, even our; present-and-future”!… Amen.


Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“THE-PROMISES,…OF,…HELP!”…

Heavenly-Father,…”It is difficult to navigate this present life. I tend to drift, sometimes,…but, I will trust-fully; in Your Son, (Jesus-of-Nazareth), to lead me and guide me,…by this Faithfulness and reliability: of which I've found, only in,...Your-own-words!”... Amen.

Sweet-Jesus,…”Although clouds and darkness, sometimes shroud me,…I know that; You are close, by my side. For this, I thank You. Lord, it’s easy to let my circumstances,…change; how I understand You. Help me, to remember that You,…are good and Faithful; even though, I can’t see everything,…and, may not really-understand; how Your Father, is working for,…and in: me!”… Amen.

Dear Jesus,…”Thank You for the friends, who demonstrate Your Love,…to me. Help me to do the same, for them,…and, for those; all-around me. Most of all, thank You,…for being, the friend; who sticks closer, than any brother,...or sister. Lord, we give You,…our deepest grief; as well as, my profoundest Joy!”… Amen.

Thank You, (Jesus),…for; “Your constant presence, no matter what today,…holds. You alone, are as Faithful,…as Your Father-in-Heaven!”… Amen.

Dear Father,…”Help me to manage, my time and enjoy the gifts,…of this present-world; today. Thank You, Heavenly-Father, for the promise of eternal-life,…through Your Son’s; shed-and-atoning, blood. Father-in-Heaven, thank You for the wisdom of Your own words. They indeed help us, when we are tempted,...in knowing that; when all ends, meet,...the truth: of Satan’s power, is indeed,...most limited!”… Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“RANKED,…AND,…FILED!”…

Today, I want to write-to-you, (dear-reader and friends),…about, how I have knelt-and-loaded; my arms high, with praise,...for my Prince!...(Jesus-of-Nazareth, His Precious-Name). He’s walked near the edge, many times,…with me. Yet, His-Father's-Words,…have never; fallen-away!...

My head, rests on His chest,…during my weary-hours, (much like, our Apostle John did; during that last-supper). Something I can’t do, with any of you. Jesus, has been the kindling,…that has kept, my fire; well lit. Although, I was unprepared,…He taught me; about His Father!....(Who, is in Heaven)!... Jehovah, His Excellent-Name!...

I’ve found nothing else, to think about,…since He’s touched, profoundly; both, my heart-and-mind. Before Him, few doors of any real opportunity,...had ever opened. More like, locks-and-bars,...were the order; of each day. I was, a not-so-simple,...job, for Jesus: although, His pleasure!...

We, openly regard one-another,…finding that each morning; brings changes, we each like. I’ve been,…(“RANKED,…AND,…FILED”)!... There’s a lot to do, but the challenges,…fire me up; with much eagerness!...

My Soul, sings with anticipation,…because of where, I’m going. I will just have to get, used-to-it,…as I’m bound, to see times; when He, will brush-close,…to me. Come, join us,…as we openly stare; at the wealth, in His Father’s-Kingdom!...

Joint-Heirs, we are,…as far as; our eyes, can see. Erase, your state of disbelief. For, this is your,…good-fortune, ( I-speak-of)... I promise you that, for whatever your reasons,…The Son's own thoughts; will always, end-up pleasing,...you!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“GOD,…IS,…GOD!”…

During these last 17 years, of my due diligence,…with studying well, the Word-of-God; sitting with the various, denominational Christian groups,…and; as I recount and reflect back, in the light of my own,…subsequent experiences: I must point out, one thing,…(“GOD,…IS,…GOD”)!... (Jehovah, His Precious-Name).

And, if He indeed is,…God; then, He is worthy of my worship and my service. I shall find rest, nowhere,…but; in His will. And, that will,…is infinitely immeasurable; unfathomable and most unconfined. Yes, unspeakably beyond my largest notions,…of what, He; is truly capable of!...

Our living-God, is One of human-history. And, He is at work,…continuously; mysteriously, accomplishing His eternal purposes,…in each and every one: of us, who believes. Yes, thru us,…(His Son’s-Faithful-Followers); and even, in spite-of-us!...

Folks, Salvation is (Not),…to be tallied-up, by anybody; except its own, Author!... Almighty-God!... Friendly relations, where there once existed,…only, hostility; is one of our primary-goals. There is always, the inner-urge to over-simplify,…yes, to weigh-in at once; with interpretations which cannot, possibly cover all of who,…our Creator really is: to us and to the rest, of His own Creation,…as a whole!...

All the compiled, edited and published data,…under the Sun; cannot stand-up, to a real and intimately close,…inspection; on the details, concerning the possessing of,…true-spiritual-insight!...

Yes, dear-reader and friends,…(“GOD,…IS,…GOD”)!... Let us stop, trying to be Him. And, let us stop placing His Son,…in the Father’s own Shoes!... They are both, uniquely-proper entities,…each; deserving their own Glory and Honor, their own reverencing and positioning,…within: our celestial-realm…Amen.

Yes, they are indeed as One,…but; in attributes, such as Patience, Mercy, Love, Unity, Cause, Faith, Mindset and Mission!...

We begin to dethrone our Heavenly-Father, in our hearts and minds,…if we start to demand; that, He act in ways,…which satisfy our own ideas; of what Justice,…should-look-like. It is this same negative-spirit, which taunts,…”If Thou be, the Son-of-God,…come down; from that, Cross!”…

There is much, unbelief,…and even, rebellion; in the attitude, that says,…”God, has no right,…to do this, (or that); to me, unless…!”

Who of us, will give ourselves,…without reservations; to do the will-of-God?... Folks, small decisions are made,…by ordinary people, (like you and me); yes, small-things happen,…which in turn: lead us to, bigger decisions!...

And, ultimately,…a man or woman’s choice; becomes, momentous!... No more depression, instead,…much caution and determination. The least thing, any of us are looking for,…is, fame; and/or worldly-fortunes!...

And, for the record,…not all questions, are answered; by our Maker!... Only, after we become the Intercessor,…for our brethren-in-Faith; for family, for friends and for the rest of humanity,…will we, then; begin to see our Heavenly-Father, restore us to levels,…never imaginable. Yes!... No more, reckless exuberance!...

Is Jesus-of-Nazareth, not mankind’s own,…Mediator and/or Intercessor?... And, what of His exaltation,…as His recompense?... I believe, with all of my heart,…that, God’s-Story; has a happy-ending.

But, not just,… yet. Not, necessarily,…yet. It takes Faith, to hold onto that,…Hope!... Even, in the face of great-burdens and experiences,…which seem to prove us; otherwise. God’s own Goodness, is far higher,…than we could ever; conceive!...

The highest Victory, of our existing Faith,…shall be the witnessing; yes, a divine-vision of a true and abiding good,…which is, (Not): of this world. Meaning, specifically,…the return of God’s-Son; to our Earth, as promised.

And, this Faith,…is interpreted; according to the measure, of each soul’s,…willingness-to-believe!... Tell me, dear-reader and friends,…is yours; a True-Triumph or a Tragedy?... Is your present-life, full-of-meaning,…or is it; completely empty?...

Are we, examples of brave-obedience,…or a sad-sack; of fathomless-foolishness?... I pray, that,…”You come to examine closely, all these unpalatable-truths!”… Amen.

A Healthier-Faith, seeks a reference point,…outside all human-experiences. It has been, with God’s-Grace, that I today,…have conquered; my inner-agony of indecision. Yes, today,…I speak freely and in Love; opposing the teachings, of the,…”Trinity-Doctrine!”…

And, I have found that,…I’m not alone; as many others, have joined-in,…this valiant-venture. It’s more than mere, eagerness. It’s a strong assurance, that all will be,…well. No more, deep sense of failure,…for us!... Every hidden truth, has finally come together,…inside; the Son’s-Light!...

All confusion, cob-webs and fogged-findings,…have been dispelled; as I have learned, to decipher well,…the differences; between rightly-dividing the Word-of-God, separating literal-language from figurative-speech,…and determining: who is saying, what?... And, about,…whom?... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“WHO-ARE-WE,…TRYING-TO-PLEASE?”…


Heavenly-Father,…”When we remember, all You have done for us, (The Faithful-Believers); our hearts are drawn, to Love You and serve You,…even more. We, (The Followers of Your Son, Jesus); desire to have, (No) other gods,…before us. Ours, is a complete allegiance,…to only You; (Jehovah and/or Yahweh, His Name): our living-God!”… Amen.


Sweet-Jesus,…”Son-of-God!... Cleanse our hearts, of anything that would divide us,…between; You and Your Father-in-Heaven!... I pray, that my reading-audience,…take-to-heart; that we all, remain in complete “Subjection”,…to Your Father: and Your God!... Yes, only He,…Saves; through Your shed and atoning-blood, Sweet-Jesus!”… Amen.


Folks,…”May nothing ever hinder, our full-time devotion,…to our Supreme-Being!... May our loyalty, to His Son,…bring-rise; to courage and determination, to speak His Word!... I pray, that your total allegiance,…to our living-God; permeate every area, of your personal lives!”… Amen.


Also, that at the Name,…of Jesus; every knee, should bow. And, soon enough,…every tongue; shall acknowledge that, He is our Lord,…to the Glory: of His Father-in-Heaven!...(see, Philippians 2:10-11 ).

Notice here, that the Glory,…always; goes to our Creator!... Everything Jesus ever did, was in total obedience to His Heavenly God and Father!... Yes, folks,…Jesus; has a God!... The very same living-God, as ours!...


Tell me, in closing. Are we trying to win over,…the approval; of human-beings, or of Almighty-God?... Or, are we trying to please,…people?... If we are still, trying to please,…people; we then are (Not), really considered being a true-servant of His Son,…Christ-Jesus!...(read, Galatians 1:10 ). Amen.


Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“PRAY,…THIS-PIECE,…WITH-ME!”…

Dear Lord, You know that there are times,…when; I just don’t feel patient and humble, nor gentle. There are those days in my personal life, when the fruit of Your Spirit,…seems; in short-supply. Please enable me, to love others,…today. Help me to remember, that You are the One,…who; causes the seed of Faith, to grow. I give my loved-ones, into Your care,…knowing that; the end of our story, has not yet,…been written!...

I know that, You did not come,…to be served; but, to serve us all. Sometimes, I fail to think of others,…but; I want to be more, like You. Please give me, a heart like,…Yours. Lord, You have chosen me,…and Redeemed me; crowned me with Love and compassion. I can do nothing less, than overflow with Joy,…at Your-Great-Love; for me and for those I love in turn,…as well: for this entire globe. This present life, is so hard,…sometimes; I confess that, I don’t always see,…Your purpose: in my trials!...

Help me to trust You, and teach me to become the person,…that; You desire me, to be. Softly and tenderly, Jesus is calling,…calling; for you (dear reader and friends), and for me as well. Can you see Him, on the portals,…He’s waiting and watching; so, won’t you,…just simply: come home?... Oh’, how I pray that you will.

Sweet-Jesus, remind us,…how important it is; that we obey You, and treat others,…the way: we want to be treated. Remind us that, Your Salvation enables us,…to live; as lights, in this darken World. You take great delight in me, Lord,…and; You always quiet me, with Your Love. You rejoice over me, with singing. Thank You, for Your tender Love!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“WITHOUT-FAITH,…WE,…FAIL”…

What happens at the moment of Salvation, when Christ-Jesus becomes our,…Saviour?... Answer: “He also becomes our Lord. And, as the Master of our lives,…He then, has a right to govern what,…we do!”…

He, takes-up residence,…when we are; “Saved!”... And, that means we will change. He, continually works to remove sinful attitudes and behaviors,…replacing them with; His Spiritual-Fruit...(please see, Galatians 5:22-23).

If we’re truly,…”Saved”; our character will become more. Christ-like,…over time. And, our desire,…will be to obey; Him. This doesn’t mean that, we’ll never sin or stumble. But, the overall direction of our lives,…will be one of; Obedience!...

At times, our understanding,…will be slow or even faltering; but, Christ,…never gives-up ; on us. He reproves us, when we exhibit,…a lack-of-Trust!...(please read, Mark 4:40). But, He also,…commends; our progress…(please see, Matthew 16:15-17).

Jesus’ objective is to firmly establish our Faith, so He can accomplish,…His-Work; in and through us. Dear-reader and friends, just remember this,…always; that, (“WITHOUT-FAITH,…WE,….FAIL”)!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“WHEN,…ENDS,…MEET!”…

There is no lasting peace, without Christ-Jesus!... I am most thankful, to believe in this One,…who; never fails. He’s the only One, in whom,…I am; building all of my hope. His Father’s Love, is too true,…to ever be weak. Because our Creator, Loves His children,…(all those, who place their Faith, in His Son); He chastises us, that we may ultimately,…be: partakers, of His own,…Holiness!...

With this Glorious end, in view,…He (Jehovah and/or Yahweh, if you prefer); spares (Not) our crying. Why is it (dear-reader and friends), that the wise,…of this present world; grasp at every opportunity, within reach,…to only further: their own interests. These very same, take much advantage of the time,…yet remaining; wasting their master’s-goods, not knowing of their,…impending discharge. They buy, their influence and good-will,…with money; which does (Not) belong to them!...

Is it, a master-stroke,…of stewardship?... Perhaps!... But, in my eyes,…good only; to themselves, at other’s expense. Yes, for I see,…only; that these I speak of, neglect and let slip-away,…the countless opportunities; to serve others, with true-compassion,…which: are most evident, all about them. The use of money, has been entrusted,…to these, unrighteous; without scruples, they use every means,…in their powers; to fill and advance, their own personal interests,…while; the “children-of-Light”, remain seemingly blind,…and indifferent; to the advancement, of the”Church-of-Christ”,…and: its many membered-body!...

The unjust steward, is never caught,…napping; on his job. He is always, wide-awake to his own,…concerns. And, though at times,…he appears, to be helpful; he does it, only because he expects,…a reward!... I pray, (dear-reader and friends),…that; this does (Not), define you. To those, who make friends,…with ill-gotten-gains; they exercise respect, only unto the recompense,…they foresee: in their immediate, future. They are wise, in the occasion,…and make haste; while the Sun, sets!...

For, these are children,…of the night; and (Not) of the,…day. In contrast, we (The Faithful Believers), are committed to our,…charge. We buy up, every opportunity to advance our eternal-interests. For, we too,…must; “work-the-works”, of Him (Jesus-of-Nazareth), who sent us,…while: it is day. For, the night comes,…when; no man and/or woman, can work!...(see, John 9:4 ). Our time,…is limited. Our day, will soon be,…past. The opportunity, to lay-up treasures,…in Heaven; is drawing, to a close!...

Almighty-God, instructs us,…that; we will never, be entrusted with great-things,…unless; we have been, proven and found faithful,…in: the slightest of responsibilities. We are accountable, to our Creator,…(“WHEN,…ENDS,…MEET”)!...

Can we, be entrusted,…with; true and enduring, substances?... Oh’, how I pray,…so!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“DEAR-READER,…AND,…FRIENDS!”…

The blood of our Christian martyrs, is the seed of Christ’s-Church!... From the very beginning, believers have died for their Faith,…in the atoning-work; of Jesus!... Through the centuries, countless men and women,…have contributed; to the blood of the martyrs, as they were put to death,…for: the crime of being Faithful followers of our Lord!...

The first person to suffer, such a death,…was; a man named, “Stephen”. His story is brief, and painful,…but; filled with the experiential wisdom, that Almighty-God desires to use,…in building our walk with; trust in, obedience to and Love for,…Him!... Many today, can’t cope with the wisdom,…of God’s-Word; so they try to discredit it. This is the typical response of men and women, of this present age,…to; the wisdom of our living God!...

When a culture based on relativism, is forced to face the absolute Truth,…and Authority; of our Holy-Scriptures, when a culture based on situational ethics,…is truly challenged; to consider the unbending standards of our Creator (a God of Righteousness); when a culture committed to religious pluralism, hears His Son say,…”I am the only Way!”; they ridicule, attack, even reject,…but: they cannot deal with it!...(please see, 1st Corinthians 1:21-25).

These enemies of Truth, are not content in spreading rumors,…about us (The Faithful Believers); they accuse us of blasphemy, arrange for false-witnesses to testify against us,…in hopes of: ruining our report and ministry. They drag us, before their judges,…and high-priests; to be put on trial. These very same, engineered their Kangaroo-Courts,…that; tried Jesus. They believe themselves, to be running the show, in this travesty of Worldly justice!...

We, (The Believers); have no advocate (other than Christ); no representative, no support-group around us,…yet; we know that, we are not alone. We know that, our Maker has not,…and will not; abandon us. It’s not so much, us as individuals,…who are on trial; it’s our message, that’s constantly questioned. And in contrast, to the frenzy and mob,…mentality; that tends to surround us, we are calm and composed,…as we respond; and our responses are brilliant, indeed!...

Ours, is a careful recitation of key-elements,…followed by; pointed applications that fly, in the face of our accusers,…their courts: and the crowds. We don’t pull any punches, but go straight to the heart of the matter. We remind our accusers, of the call of our Heavenly-Father,…upon Abram; who in Faith, left his home to go to a land-of-Promise!... Convictions, either hardens-hearts,…or; softens and breaks them. “Martyr” comes from the Greek word,…(”Martureo”); which has nothing to do, with dying,…and: everything to do with, living. (“Martureo”), means,...“To-Bear-Witness!”…

Because Stephen, (“Bore-Witness”), to the Glory-of-Christ,…he; lost his life. Martyrdom, is not about dying for a cause,…it’s about; being Faithful to the gospel, even to the point-of-death. Who of us today, (dear-reader and friends); is truly filled with this, Faithfulness-and-Devotion?... Oh’, how I pray,…that you are!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“READ-THIS,…WITH,…SPIRITUAL-CLARITY!”…

We are all, like sheep gone-astray. We have all, at some time or another,…turned to; our own ways. We stray in many ways, desiring and doing what displeases our Creator,…often-times, even; hurting other people, by our conduct and being completely distracted,…from: otherwise spending some quality time, with The Son-of-God,…in His Father’s-Word!...

Could it be, simply because we are too busy,… or lack interest?... Let us remember our Good-Shepherd, who calls us back to safe pastures,…that we might; follow His Father’s-Ways, more closely!...

Sweet-Jesus,…”You are the Shepherd of my soul, please help me to stop wandering-about. I’m truly most grateful, that You’re always seeking me,…to bring me back; to Your Father’s-Fold!”… Amen.

Folks, if you want the Son-of-God,…to lead you; just be willing, to follow. May we never fail to see, that we all desperately need,…to recognize the depth and passion; of His Father’s, rescuing Love!...

Dear-reader and friends, our Jesus-of-Nazareth,…lived on this earth; and for 33 years, He shared in our humanity. He was made like us, (by His God, and His Father-in-Heaven); fully human, in every way…(see, Hebrews 2:17). So, the Son-of-God,…really knows; what it’s like to live, in a human body on this earth!...

He understands the struggles we face, and comes alongside us,…with; much understanding and encouragement. He could have, very easily avoided the torture of that horrendous Roman-Cross!... Yet, He didn’t. He focused on obeying, His God and His Father-in-Heaven!... It was through His death, that Jesus broke the power of Satan,…and freed us; The Faithful-Believers!...

Yes, friend,…today; we are freed, from our fear-of-death.

Lord, Jesus,…”Thank-You, for walking in our shoes,…and; for being with us. May we experience Your presence, each and every day. For, I know,…You; understand me, completely!”… Amen.

Just read, (Hebrews 2:10-18)… Here you will see, that it’s all about His God and His Father-in-Heaven!... Verse (10) reads, “In bringing many sons and daughters, (that’s referring to you and me, folks); to glory, it was fitting that God, (Jesus’ own God and Father-in-Heaven),…for whom and through whom; everything exists, should make the pioneer of their Salvation, (speaking of Jesus’ position, as our pioneer): perfect, through what He, (speaking about Jesus),…suffered!”

It’s God’s will, that Jesus be our Pioneer!... Also, that He be appointed and commissioned,…to do all the suffering; on our behalf. We are the children of God, given to Jesus,…by; His God and Father-in-Heaven. Read well, (verse 17)… It says that, “For this reason, He (meaning Jesus), had to be made like them, (meaning us, fleshly humans); fully human in every way, in order that He (Jesus),…might become a Merciful and Faithful: High-Priest, in service to God. And, that He (Jesus), might make atonement for the sins of the people!”…


Clearly, our apostle Paul,…knew that; Jesus-of-Nazareth, was commissioned by our Heavenly-Father,…to be our: High-Priest!... Yet, many of you are still calling Him,…God; Himself!... Jesus is our Mediator, able to stand before and between us,…and our Creator; His God and His Father-in-Heaven!... Even today, Jesus continues to make intercession,…for us; so that His Father, can extend His boundless Grace,…unto: our undeserving selves!...Amen.

Get it right, folks. Jesus, is and always shall be,…the Glorified; Son-of-God!... Amen. And, never has been nor ever will be,…mistaken by us; the true-believers, as being erroneously called,…God!...Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“TEACHING,…WHAT-WAS,…FIRST-TAUGHT!”…

Who of us, can turn the disobedient,…towards; the wisdom of the just?... Who, will make ready,…for our Lord, (Jesus-of-Nazareth); a people, well prepared?... Will we be, privy to stand,…in the very presence; of His Father-in-Heaven, (Jehovah, His Precious-Name)?...

"Oh’, how I pray,…than you can; and that you, will"... Amen.

Yes, dear-reader,…who of us, in the end; shall find Favor, with the very,…”Giver-of-Life?”… I want today, to turn you, (The Faithful-Believers); to the wisdom of Almighty-God, found in His written Word!... Notice well, how in (Luke 1:32); the Arch-Angel-Gabriel, is speaking to Mary, (a highly favored woman, in God’s own eyes); regarding the Son, whom she will bear!...

Gabriel said; “He will be great, and will be called the Son of,…(The Most-High)!”… And of how our living-God, will give His only begotten Son, (Jesus),…the very Throne-of-David; for an inheritance, to reign and preside over God’s chosen-and-destined ,…down here: on our New-Earth promised, (yet-future). Yes, friends,…Jesus, shall reign; over the household of Jacob, (of which king David is a direct descendant, as Jesus Himself is also a member, of this family-tree)…(see, verse 33).

And, in verse (35); Mary is told that the very Power-of-God, would over-shadow her and that the child,…she would bear: would be called Holy, the Son-of-God!... Somehow, mankind has managed,…for centuries without end; to pervert and twist this most obvious and simplest of truths. Let’s remember that, His Father’s Mercy is reserved for those,…whose fear, (or reverence) for their Creator; causes us to put aside, all pride!...

No more fabricated-fables, no more putrid-principles,…for us; whereas the unbeliever and unrepentant, shall be scattered,…even their inner-most thoughts; within their haughty-hearts, those that have made them rich,…by teaching: “doctrines-of-devils!”…(these-soon-enough, will be done away,…with).

These very same, including the undecided,…who remain, purposely defiant and unruly; regarding the things of our Maker,…yes, these very same: are kept in a constant state of mental-derision. All done, by the very hand of our Heavenly-Father!... Why?... Because, they refuse to believe the truth,…and instead; lean towards believing the spoon-fed lies, of this worldly system!...

God, shall send away,…empty handed; the lukewarm in heart. But, in remembrance of His Mercy,…we (Followers of Jesus); will help all those, He calls good and faithful servants. Remember this, always,…that; Jesus returns, sooner than later. And, with (“Rod-of-Iron”),…in hand; He brings down the mighty, from their self-imposed thrones,…as He exalts: those of humble-estate. Yes, friends,…this Son-of-God; fills the spiritually-hungry, with good-things!...

What must be said, to you (dear-reader); so that God’s-Tender-Mercy, can be shed on you,…from on high?...

I pray that,..."These words today,…give light; to all those who, sit in darkness. May this message, of our Heavenly-Father,…ultimately guide; each and every one of you, into His Way of Peace!... May we daily, continue to grow strong,…together; in the Spirit!... As we feed ourselves, with truth,…throughout; our public ministry!"... Amen.

May the Glory, all go to God,…in the highest; and on Earth, His Peace,…may it be shed: among those, with whom He is well pleased. May you (dear-reader); learn to treasure up, all the things of our living-God!...

Yes, let’s ponder them,…well; deep within our hearts-and-minds. I shall personally glorify, my Maker (Jehovah),…as together; we here at this wonderful website, praise His Son,…our Prince: for all that He, has taught us!... Amen.

And, for all that we have read and learned,…as it was first told-and-taught; by this very same, Son-of-God!...(Jesus-of-Nazareth).

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

"SUSTAINED,...BY,...GRACE!"...

A sense of social humiliation, then of personal vexation,...has come over me. A good deal, has been happening,...without my knowledge. Let's not change the cards, we have,...on the table. It was I, who calls,...on you!...

I wish, to tell you,...of a certain-letter; from my Lord, (Jesus-of-Nazareth), in which He declares,...His personal-passion: for you and for me. A passion, of whose intensity,...I was completely ignorant; till now. He charges me, to ask you,...for; your devoted Love, hearts-and-minds!...

The silence, has lasted,...a long time; as my Prince, has lost patience. It is I, who today,...is waiting; for you, to declare your intentions. Cover your eyes, for an instant,...with your hands; then raise them, brimming with candor,...and amazement. Then, let your own joy-and-surprise,...make all-words; fall away!...

I can give, no answer,...until I have questioned; this Mighty-Angel, (Gabriel), who has become the consolation,...of: my-own-home. But, all that happens in my heart,...today, has been made; known-to-me. And, I think,...I can say-that; Jesus' affection, which honors us all,...is truly: most sincere-and-true!...

And, so,...right-now; I am overcome, with much emotion. As the worst, is not-yet,...over; by any means.

His affection, for me,...comes to the fore-front; again. I imagine those bright, loving-eyes,...glittering; as they read, my happy reply. I saw, Jesus,...offering many; His own security, with regards to our,...Life-Eternal. And, our chances for developing,...endless-talents; today, are certain!...

"I invoke, the protection of Father-in-Heaven, (Jehovah, His Excellent-Name); who happens to also be, Almighty God!... This marriage of ours, Sublime-and-Surreal,...is indeed; mine-and-yours!".... He, (The Son-of-God),...uttered; to me.

Then, Jesus,...extended, the tips of His fingers; without saying, a word. The Love of my Saviour, is the true foundation,...of all; our future happiness, (dear-reader and friends). Although, we men-and-women,...of much experience; have always thought, of other things,...too!...

I am sure, that your sons-and-daughters,...will decorate further; these treasures-of-old. Yes, I speak of this Evergreen-Tree,...who, by its rare-beauty; emulates the very- virtues, and saintly principles,....of: His own, Creator!.... There is, endless good,....in Him; The Father-of-Lights!... For, the Son,...has taught me, so.

I shall never, say a word,...which would cloud; His own Mindset-and-Mission!... For, His cause,...has become; mine as well. His prophecies, very-risky,...but; prudently-conditional... The funds of Goodness, are Great indeed; as in the end, we are all...("SUSTAINED,...BY,...DIVINE GRACE")!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“DEAR,…CONGRESS!"...

The best way, to determine what a community wants,…is to listen; to what its people, have to say. This is a fundamental principle, of democracy. Disagreements, can lead to healthy debates,…which brings new information; and ideas to light. When a particular issue strikes, at the fundamental beliefs,…of any group and/or individual; the debate can be especially fierce. In these situations, it becomes more important than ever,…to practice: civility!...

The purpose of this, (my letter); is to urge the citizens-of-America, to communicate in a more respectful,...and effective way. Mine, is not a campaign,…to end; all disagreements. It’s a campaign, to improve public discourse,…by simply reminding ourselves; of the very basic principles, with regards to the topic of,...Respect!...

By elevating our level-of-communication, and avoiding personal attacks,…as well, general stubbornness; we can avoid, many unhealthy debates!...

This will lead, to a more effective democracy,...and help maintain; our sense-of-community, and of country,...by increasing, our civic participation. I hope, to reach not only our elected officials,…and their political groups; but, also regular people,…like, my closest-neighbors; our Church groups and other organizations, even,...you parents: who tend-to-stand always, on the sidelines. I’m not just targeting those, who are uncivil,…but, those who allow; uncivilized behaviors, to occur!...

My key-message, is to promote,..."Civility!"...

(“DEAR,…CONGRESS”)!... Please pay attention. Be aware and attend, to our country’s needs,…and, to the people; yes, the very ones,...who have elected, each of you: as individuals, to represent us. Listen!... Focus on others, in order to better understand,…our points-of-view. Be inclusive!... Welcome all groups, of citizens,…working, for the greater-good; of our Nation. Don’t gossip!... And don’t accept, when others choose,…to do so. Show Respect!... Honor the people, of the United States of America,...and our opinions; especially, in the midst of your current,...disagreements!...

Apologize!... Be sincere-and-repair, your damaged relationships,…with us; the people. Give constructive criticism!... When disagreeing, stick to the issues,…and don’t make, a personal attack; on each other. Take responsibility!... Don’t shift, responsibility-and-blame,...onto others. Share your disagreements, publicly!...

And, finally,…I pray; “That, in order for us all,…to harness; this passion we call, America,…toward useful ends; it’s most important, that we,...as a whole-people, communicate: in a more civil, and productive Way!”… Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“AN-SO,…I-SAID,…AMEN!!...


Who, of you,…will; certainly try?... Who, will seek-out,…your own; opportunity?...


Who, will be able,…to glance at, Jesus’; piercing-eyes?... Are you, still there?... Does, this thought,…cause you to sink; into your chair, just a few inches-more?... A long minute, passed.


“I believe, His full Name is,…Jesus-of-Nazareth?",…you stated, softly. As, I nodded.


“How did you, know?",…I asked.

“A Voice, backed me away,…from continuing; my old-ways. This very Voice, whispered to me,…of Christ-Jesus!",…you confessed.


You grew, perfectly still,…as you placed, your hands; over your eyes. Tears, slowly seeped,…thru, your palms. Slowly, you leaned forward,…and planted both elbows; on both knees, as you assumed,...a sitting-position.


"Death", our ultimate punishment,…and, I was convinced; that this thought, had finally convicted,...your own: inner-Spirit!... Now pressed, I made my arguments,…as persuasively; as possible. You, actually believed!... But, the burden of your personal sins,…were, too-over-whelming; as I despised, this horrible aspect,…of: my duties.


We, read-aloud,…(together); a few Scriptures, consoling both of our,...shattered: dreams-and-hearts.


“How many appeals, are left?",…you asked.


“None, it is Finished!"…I responded.


You, sitting across my desk,…simply-waiting; for the Holy-Spirit, to over-shadow,...your: endless-shame.


The usual assortment, of last-ditch efforts,…were not applicable; in this scene. The nice kid, in you,…finally realized; the all-too-real, condemned-condition,...and state-of-mind: your very Soul, had been in.

(“AND-SO,…I-SAID,…AMEN”)!...

Your Friend,
Izzy!...
