BY-THE-WILL,…OF: (“GOD”)!...

Friends!... This passage, is a continuation of,…(John 17: please read, entire chapter)…

In, (v-12); Jesus, talking with,…His-Father / assures that; He’s done, His part in teaching,…His-Followers!... Yes!... The-Truth!...

Folks!... I pray that,…”Jesus’-own-joy, be fulfilled in you. Yes!... A joy, steadfast-and-filled with visions,…of-our: eternal-tomorrows!”… Amen. (see: v-14)

Jesus, didn’t come to claim anything,…outside / of: His-Father’s-Will. No, sir!... He, was,…”chosen” / because, The-Father; knew of Jesus’-matchless,…”Obedience!”… *(They’ve been together, since the world – was)*

After all, the appointment-and-commissioned,…”work” / was – monumental; historical-and-everlasting!... Amen.

No one, less than,…”a-direct-descendant” / Seed-of-The-Father: would ever, suffice!...

Dear-reader!... The-Holy-Spirit’s, protection,…keeps us / guarded from: the-evil-one!... (see: v-15)

A,…”third-and-independent” / entity; also appointed and commissioned, by,…Almighty-God!... *(For-various-tasks: throughout humanity’s existence)*

The-Son,…(“asked”) / His-Father; for this,…(“Other-Helper”)!... To be that, all necessary,…Divine-Protection; in-the-interim, until,…Jesus’-return. The-Father, fulfilled His-Son’s request,…and / sent-us: The-Holy-Spirit!... *( remember – always – that: all-things, proceed from The-Father)*

This,…”Spirit-of-Truth” / continues-to-date; the very work, of,…”instruction-comfort-and-guidance!”… For, He,…leads us / into: The-Father’s-Word!... Amen.

This very same,…”Holy-Spirit” / over-shadowed: Mary!... *(the mother of – Jesus)* Yes!... A-highly-favored, woman,…indeed, from among; all-other-females.

(“BY-THE-WILL-OF-GOD”)!... This is how, Mary was,…impregnated; through this, “appointed-and-commissioned”,…Spirit!... Yes!... How, can this be,…possible?...

Answer: Well, certainly,…not-by-any / reasoning-of-ours: no, sir!... I repeat, it was done,…(“BY-THE-WILL-OF-GOD”)!... That’s your, much needed answer: (when others, challenge you)… It was not accomplished, by any,…will-of-man.

I-ask-you, dear-reader!... Did not,…”The-Fallen-Angels” / leave-their-habitation; and do so, without the consent and/or permission,…of: Almighty-God?...

These, when coerced by,…Satan / left-their; celestial-realm!... Because, they acted on their own,…”Free-Will” / we call them: “Fallen!”… Yes!... But,…”Fallen”,…from what?...

Answer: God’s own presence, His-Grace, His-Favoring and,…”His-Will”… Amen.

These very same,…”lusted”,…after our women, (this can be read, in the book of: Genesis); and the celestial-realm, ended up,…”impregnating” / our: fleshly-women. Yes!...

This, was done without,…God’s / acceptance; and done as, a direct-and-blatant,…act / of: “Disobedience!”… One third, of,…God’s-Angels / followed-suit: and descended unto, Earth!...

The,…”celestial” / inter-breaded, with the: “terrestrial”… And, in total defiance,…to: (“GOD’S-WILL”)!...

Their actions, resulted in our women,…bearing / “Giants!”… Who, demonstrated physical deformities,…such as / having: six-toes and six-fingers.

The same,…”Giants” / we find, present; occupying the Earth, even in,…Moses’-Era!... For, the promised land called,…”Canaan”: was filled, with,…”Giants!”…

And, did not,…David / fight-and-defeated: “Goliath?”… Yes!... Yet, another example of,…”Giants” / occupying our: Earth!... Amen.

Friends!... The difference, between,…”good-works” / and: ill-gotten-gains. Is what?...

Answer: It all lies, on whether you are,…inside / (“GOD’S-WILL”): or you are, not!... All of this, still holds true,…for: us!...

I-ask-you: How are we, conducting our every-day-existence?... Are, our actions,…godly / or: unruly?... Are we, living-life: (“BY-THE-WILL-OF-GOD”)?... Or,…not?... Amen. *( chapter 17: to-be-continued)*

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

P.S. Our Bible, mentions that our Jesus,…returns / to: Earth!... When He does, He shall find the planet,…to be / in the condition, as-of-in: (“THE-DAYS-OF-NOAH”)!... YES!...
Much, revelry,…over-all. No real, “law-n-order”,… to-speak-of; as everyone will be doing, what they see,…fit. And, what about,…”Giants?”…
Well, it’s very common,…in-today’s-world; to see a multitude, of,…men; reaching the heights,…of,…(“seven-feet”): or more. Could this be, a sign,…of an,…impending-age?...

ARE-WE-ONE?... OR / (“NOT”)!...

Friends!... Let’s finish, our viewing of,…(John: chapter 17)… Shall-we?...

In, (v-16); Jesus, tells His-Father,…that / we, (who-believe); are not of this world. Just as, He,…is / (“Not”): of-this-world!...

To be,…”Sanctified” / is-to-be; set apart and made, whole. God’s-Word, makes our,…”partialness” / into a new: spiritual-wholeness!...

“Holier-than-Thou!”… We are not. But,…”godly” / we do strive, for: daily!...

God’s-Truth, fills our previous,…worldly-knowledge / with: His-own-Truths!... And, once known,…this / in-itself; sets us apart, from worldly practices. Why?...

Answer: For, many reasons. Primarily, because we are made aware,…of / the world’s: futile-findings!...

Our time, here on Earth,…is most / fleeing; we like pilgrims, are just passing,…through. Jesus, lives a lasting,…”Hope!”… Yes!...

One, that involves a continual,…growing / of-sorts: yes!...

Note-well, in,…(v-20): there’s room for growth, in our efforts to share,…”the-gospel”… For, there’s still time for those,…who / will believe, in our efforts: to share, this,…Message!...

Yes!... For those, who will believe in,…Jesus / through-our-spoken: words!... There is still, time. Amen. (see: v-20)

Jesus, longs for us to believe,…one-important-fact!...

That being, that,…His-Father / sent – Him: to us!... Note-well, in,…(verses 21-26)
For-emphasis-sake, Jesus,…repeats: Himself!... In, (v-21); Jesus, uses again,…the word: (“Us”)!...

“That-they, may also be,…in: (US)!”… Unequivocally, two-uniquely-proper,…entities!... Amen.

Dear-reader!... We are taught, by,…Jesus / that-we-can, all be; (“One”)!... Yet, this in itself,…does-not / make void, our: “individuality!”…

As,…”individuals” / we share, these truths: with others. And, as these,…”others”,…come-to-believe; we there-after, become,…”One!”… Yes!...

“One!”… With both, The-Father and His-Son!...

“Even, as,…(WE) / are: One!”… Again, Jesus,…states / the-distinction-present: with the, Father-and-Son!... *(two-separate-entities)*

In, (v-22); Jesus, says: “The Glory, that,…You, (Father); have given Me. I have now, given to them,…that / they may be: (One)… Even, as,…(WE),…are: One!”…

I-ask-you, dear reader!... What is, our,…Glory?...

Answer: To reach this, “spiritual-understanding”; to finally unfold, what the world calls,…”mysteries!”… To believe, in the,…One-True-God!... Yahweh: His-Everlasting-Name!... And, to confess with our lips,…that: Jesus-is-the-Christ!...

This is,…”Salvation” / for: you and me!... To believe, that,…God / raised, Jesus; from among the Dead!... *(after-three-days: in-the-tomb)*

Friends!... This is our ticket, for obtaining,…(“THEIR-GLORY”)!... Amen.

Jesus, in,…us!... And, God,…in / Jesus!... That, (WE),…may all become, perfectly: “One!”… Why?...

Answer: “So, that-the-world,…may know that / God: sent us, Jesus!... And, that,…God: Loves – us!... As, He,…Loves: Jesus!”... *(His-only-Begotten: Son)* Amen. (see: v-23)

There will come, a day when,…we’ll / see: The-Son’s-Glory!... Given to Jesus, because and as a direct,…result / of, God: Loving-His-Son!... *(For-no-other: reason)* (see: v-24)

In-closing: I-pray-that: “The Love, with which,…our living / God,…has Loved –Jesus: be today, also in,…you!”… Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

BEARING-WITNESS,…TO-THIS: (“TRUTH”)!...

Friends!... As we study, (chapter 18: of John): in-its-entirety!...

We see, how,…word-of-mouth / and misinterpretations; can truly spread, like,…”wildfire!”… Yes!...

Jesus, never claimed to be a,…king!... No, sir!... *(although, we do use this / title: figuratively. To express our knowledge, that,…He: shall rule over, all-things-known)*

In, (v-33); Pilate,…the Roman-Governor; asked Jesus,…”Are you, the king of the Jews?”…

Note-well, how our Jesus,…answers / in: (v-34)… “Do you, (Pilate), say this,…of-your-own / accord?... Or, did others,…say-it-to / you: about, Me?”...

Folks!... Pilate, is-clue-less,…as-to / Who: Jesus, really is. In, (v-35); Pilate admits that, he just wants to know,…why / the-chief-priests; have delivered Jesus, over to him?...

In, (v-36); Jesus answers. And, as He speaks of a kingdom,…yet / not-of-this: world!... Pilate, then assumes that,…Jesus,…must-be-some / type-of: king!...

In, (v-37); it reads as follows. Then, Pilate said to Jesus: “So, you-are-king?”… And, Jesus answered: “You, (Pilate), say that,…I-am-a: king!”… *(note-well: the following words)* “For this purpose, I-have-come into the,…world. *(Jesus-speaking-here, as He,…gets-ready-to; tell us, of,…His-Truest-Purpose)*

Please-read-carefully: “To-Bear-Witness, to the,…Truth. Everyone, who is of the truth,…listens / to: My-Voice!”…

Dear-reader!... Are you, listening to,…Jesus’-Voice?... Know that, of His own accord,…Jesus / never-admits-to,…anything, other than; to-be-a,…”Witness!”… Yes!... To the,…Truth!... Amen.

*(now, don’t go,…calling me: A-Jehovah’s-Witness, just because,…I just mentioned, this point)*

Remember, I personally belong,…to no, worldly,…denominational / group; I consider myself, simply a,…long-life-student,…of: God’s-Word!...

For-this-one, purpose,…He, (Jesus): came-into-the, world!... And, what is,…Truth?...

Answer: That, there is only,…One / True: God!... *(Yahweh: His-Glorious-Name)* Alive and well, yes!... He is, Jesus’-own-God!... And, ours!... Yes!... His-Father!... And,…ours!... Amen.

In, (v-39); Again, Pilate, repeats the here-say,…around / town; that, this,…Jesus of Nazareth,…is-calling-Himself: “King-of-the-Jews!”…

As the chapter, comes-to-an,…end; we can see that, Pilate,…finds-no-guilt, in: Jesus!... So, Pilate,…decides-to-honor / a-Jewish-custom; by releasing, one man.

*(this-the, Roman’s practiced, at the Jewish-Passover-Event; as a gesture, in their behalf, of demonstrating,…Mercy-and-Compassion: over those, whom they ruled)*

The-Jews, cried-out: “Give us, Barabbas!”…

Pilate, offered Jesus,…Freed: to the crowd. But, the crowd, only yelled,…the more / again: “Give us, Barabbas!”…

Chapter 19: of John, is quite lengthy, I will proceed, to review it,…together: with you!...

Meanwhile, as-I-close this passage,…let me say / this; The-Romans, didn’t condemn our Jesus!... No, sir!... The-Jews, did. Meaning, their, high-priests and Pharisees, along with the officers,…of their,…high-courts: and counsel…

The very ones, who felt most,…threatened / by: Jesus!... They feared, this,…Man!... He, was winning,…”Favor” / and-this-meant, that; the religious order, of those days,…was taking a,…”back-seat!”…

This, of course,…was just / simply: unacceptable. And, so,…God’s-own / chosen-people; plotted to kill, the very,…”Son-of-God!”…

*(to-be-continued)*

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

(“RUMOR”),…HAS,…IT...

Friends!... I continue reading, in the,…”Book-of-John!”…

In, (chapter – 19); this is what, I see: A people, (The-Jews), completely-stupefied!...

Although, Pilate,…(The-Roman-Governor); desires to release, Jesus!... The-chief-priests, insist on having,…Jesus / killed.

Note-well, how,…by the,…very-mouths-of / the-chief-priests; these words, were uttered!... *(We, have no king, but: Caesar)* (see: John 19: 15)

Note-well, The-Devil’s-Work!... In, (v-21); the-chief-priests, of the Jews,…said-to, Pilate: “Do not write, (the king of the Jews), as the inscription, on the cross!”…

Confusion-and-here-say, has been always,…Satan’s / weaponry!... He, always instigates in very,…subtle-ways. Gentle-as-doves!... Yet, this,…Dark-One / is: cunning-as-serpents!... Amen.

All-the-while, countless,…”false-testimonies”,…had run / rampant; the only real, implication from Jesus,…was-always-that / He, was: God’s-own-Son!...

Note-well, in,…(John 19: 7): The-Jews and Officers of their courts, convinced Pilate of their,…”Law!”… Yes!... With, regard to anyone making themselves,…out-to-be: “The-Son-of-God!”…

So, here,…we-can-clearly / see, that; the blasphemy, (supposedly), on behalf of Jesus,…was / because, He; was making Himself, out-to-be,…(“The-Son-of-God”)!...

Never, Never,…ever / did, Jesus; claim-to-be,…God!... But-rather, the,…Son-of-God!... Emphatically-and-unequivocally, we know this,…Truth / because-of-Jesus’; continual language, with respect to,…”His-Father’s-Kingdom!”…

Yet, back-then,…as-it-still / remains, today: (“RUMOR,…HAS,…IT”)!... That, Jesus,…claims-to-be / both-a-king; and-a-God!... Yes!...

The-Romans, called,…Jesus / “King-of-the-Jews!”… (see: John 19: 3)

The-Roman-Governor, inscribes it,…atop / Jesus’-Cross!... (see: John 19: 19)

Yet, The-Jews,…themselves / answered: “We, have no king: but, Caesar!”…

Dear-reader!... This, is one fine example,…of / why, God: hates – gossip!...

One, of His,…Ten Commandments,…declares to us / to, (“Not”): bear-false-witness!... Can you, tell me: Why is it, that we love to,…tickle-each-other’s / ears; with half-truths and full-out-lies?...

No, nothing’s-change-under,…our / Sun!... Despite, the countless number of people,…which / Jesus: healed-and-fed, *(both-physically-and-spiritually)*… We only, find,…His-Mother, His-Aunt / and-a-once: demon-possessed-woman.

That’s-right!... All-three, Mary’s,…were present / at-the-foot, of: Jesus’-Cross!... (see: John 19:25)

Then, there was our,…Apostle-John: whom, Jesus,…Loved!... (see: John 19: 26)

Also, Joseph-of-Arimathea, (another-disciple): and Nicodemus, a Roman-Centurion!... (see: John 19: 38-39 ) Yes!...

Only, a-remnant-class,…of / supporters; and in closing, I – assure – you, that these few,…hold-a-special / place: in God’s-own-Heart!... Indeed!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

(“PEACE”),…BE-WITH-YOU!...

Friends!... We’ve reached, chapter 20: of the book, of,…John!... How, exiting!...

The first, shall-be-last!... And, the last,…shall-be: first!... Indeed!... Amen.

There are so many, examples of this statement,…throughout / our: Bible!... But, for today,…I want to / make-emphasis-on: Mary-Magdalene!... When I look, at her,…I see someone, whom / society; would easily consider, an,…”Untouchable!”… Yes!... *(the last, thought,…of: to be prized, with anything)*

Yet, she,…ends-up-being,…very / privileged-as: “First!”… Yes!... To witness, our-risen,…Lord!... Even, before those other,…two-disciples: Peter-and-John!...

Those, two-men,…anyone would agree / from studying, our Bible; that they were, indeed,…”First”: in Jesus’-eyes, and for many reasons!...

For, upon,…Peter / our-Jesus, lays: His-Foundational-Church!... *(Peter, is translated to mean: Rock)*… A Spiritual-and-Foundational, leader of the early,…Church!... Yes!... Peter,…was / this: and much-more. Amen.

And, with,…John / we-know-that, he-held-a; very special place, in Jesus’-own,…Heart!... For, John,…is known / as; The-Disciple, whom our Jesus,…”Loved!”…

But,…Mary-Magdalene / gets-first-glance; at the risen, Christ!... Amen. The other, two men,…after / exploring, an-empty-tomb; decide to return, to their homes. But, not,…Mary!... Oh,…no!...

She, stays behind,…weeping; the other, two-men,…didn’t feel / such-deep: sorrow!... No, sir!... Not, compared to,…Mary’s!...

All-of-this, was happening on the,…”First” / Day, of: the week. *(typically considered: Sundays. Back, in olden-days)*

Again, there’s that word,…of: (“First”)!...

Folks!... Jesus, is,…”The-First-Born” / of-all: Creation!... Yes!... And, He’s,…certainly / “First”: in the Father’s-own-Eyes!... Yes!... For,…”all-things!”… Amen.

Note-well, please!... In, (v-17); Jesus, considers,…His-Followers / to be: His-Brothers and Sisters!... Yes!... We are not, just mere servants,…but-rather / “Family-Members”: Partaking-inside-of, His-Father’s-Kingdom!... Amen.

But, more importantly. Note, how this, (v-17): ends!... “I,…(Jesus-speaking: here); am ascending to, My-Father / and your: Father!... To,…My-God / and your: God!”…

I-ask-you: dear-reader!... Why, would Jesus,…say / this: were-it-not, true?... Let’s always remember, that there was never,…ever / found; any guile, to be spewed,…from: His-Lips!... NO, SIR!... So, I take our Jesus,…at / His-Word: He, has indeed a,…Father-and-God!... Amen.

I-believe, this is an,…”emphatic-statement” / on-behalf-of: Jesus!... Yes!...

Whereas, by-contrast, for example: When our, “doubting-Thomas”, finally witnesses / our-risen: Jesus!... *(in-that: upper-room)* This man, speaks in,…”figurative-ways!”… Yes!... When, he says: and I quote!...

“My-Lord and My-God!”…

The personal level, of,…”esteem” / for-our-Jesus; is truly, immense. Coming from, Thomas!... For, this is such an intense,…moment / for: Thomas!... *(as would be, for any of: us)*

That, surely,…only-a-god / could-come-back, from; among the Dead!... *(so-reasons: Thomas)*

Friends!... Rightly-Dividing-The-Word, involves more than merely,…repeating / worldly: “clichés”… Yes!... It involves, many prayers, supplication / and: thanksgiving!... Amen.

I will, pick-up my perspective,…at / (v-19): when we continue, this chapter – 20: of the book, of,…John!...

Pray-for-me!... As, I – shall / for: you-and-yours!... And, until-next-time: (“PEACE”),…BE-WITH-YOU!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

OH’,…HOW-I-PRAY: (“SO”)!...

Friends!... Let’s continue our study, of,…*(John – chapter: 20)* Please, I encourage you always / to: read-the-entire, chapter!...

I last, left-off at, (v-19); note-well, how a resurrected-body,…is well / able to: (“transcend”)!... *(physical-barriers-like: locked-doors)*

And, it reads: “On the evening, of that day, the first day of the week, (Sunday); the doors, being locked, where the disciples were, *(for-fear-of-the-Jews)*; Jesus – came and stood, among them and said: Peace, be with you!”…

Focus and look-upon, Jesus’-constant-message!... “As, The-Father,…has-sent / Me!”… (see: v-21). These are His-Words!...

Wouldn’t you think, that,…by now / after – being – Resurrected: from the Dead!... Jesus, would now confess to all, that,…He: is-God?... Then, why doesn’t,…He?...

Answer: Simply, because,…He / isn’t!... Amen.

“Endless, are the Bible’s own,…examples!... Yes!... When, we focus on Jesus’-own-quoted: utterances!... We can find, each and every,…time / that, He: insists on one truth. That, being,…that / His-Father: has sent Him, to us!...

Why, are the churches,…teaching / different?... *(truly – it’s: beyond me)*

Something, else,…note-worthy / of: sharing!... In, (v-22); Jesus,…”Breathed” / on: them!... *(meaning: His-Disciples)*

Thomas, note-well,…”missed-out” / on: this-special-gifting!... Yes!... *(doubting – Thomas)*

The-Holy-Spirit, was,…”blown” / into-the-nostrils, of: The-Disciples!... Much-the-same, way as,…Almighty-God / Yahweh: “blows”,…the very / “Breath-of-Life!”… *(into – Adam)* Written and declared, back in the,…”Book-of-Genesis!”…

Both, The-Father and His-Son,…possess-the-ability / to: “transfer-power!”… The-Holy-Spirit, I’ve always stated,…that / it’s-a-third: entity!...

But, I-also-wonder,…if / He’s – not, more so; a transferrable,…”Energy-Source?”… *( or – power )*

Note-well, in,…(Acts 2: 33)… The-Holy-Spirit, is being,…”poured-out!”… Distributed, if-you-will.

And, it is referred to,…as / “A-Gift”: to be actually, received!... *(read: Acts 2: 38)

Answer: Bottom-line. I believe, The-Holy-Spirit,…is both / a-power-source,…and: an-independent-entity!...

Folks!... It’s, everything,…God / wants-it-to, be!... Amen. Just, like,…His-Son / is: “All-in-All”…

For, in the end,…”All-Things” / proceed-from-our: living-God!... *(Yahweh”: His-Unmatched-Name)*

As, we come to a closing,…in / chapter: 20 – of – John!... Note-well, please!...

In, (v-31); it reads, that: “These things, are written,…so-that-you / may-believe, that Jesus; is the Christ!... *(Anointed-One)* The-Son-of-God!...

But,…Anointed-by-Whom?...

Answer: His-Father!... Yes!... All, that is,…The-Father’s / today-is-now, also: The-Son’s!... Given, passed-down, from,…Father / to: Son!... Amen. Let’s not, ignore these truths!...

Note, that it is by,…”believing-in-the-Son” / that we; may possess this, promise of,…”eternal-life!”… And, what’s,…The-Son’s / Message?... That, He,…was / sent: by-God, Himself!... To speak,…(“only”), The-Father’s-Words!... To do,…(“only”),…The-Father’s / will… Amen. *(not-His-own: will)*

For, it’s,…The-Father’s / own: set-forth-criteria!... Yes!... That, we stay focused on,…His-Son / and: believe, His-Message!... Which, deals with,…His-Father’s / Kingdom!... *(and-nothing-else)*

In closing: Tell me, dear-reader!... What, do you,…believe?... Is, Jesus,…God?... *(to-you)*

Or, is,…He: The-Son-of-God?... As, our,…Bible: so-specifically-teaches!...

The-Apostle-John, knew-that,…Jesus / is – (“Not”): The-Father!... Do,…you?...

OH’,…HOW-I-PRAY: (“SO”)!... Amen.

P.S. The-Father, (“chose-Jesus”); to do this,…”Work-of-Salvation!”… He, didn’t appoint,…Himself!... To only later, mention that,…He / holds: many – other – natures!... *(as-the-religionists: would have you, believe)*

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

SPIRITUALLY,…(“SPEAKING”)!...

Friends!... The-Book-of-John, closes-out-at,…chapter,…(21)…

As I read it, (one-more-time), this jumps out and grabs,…me: the most!...

Even, in a resurrected state,…our / Jesus; enjoys the act, of eating and fellowships with,…His-Disciples; as they consume, bread-and-fish!...

The camaraderie, of Christ,…the warmth / of: His-Presence!... This, is our truest,...”sustenance!”… Amen.

Jesus, calls,…His-Disciples / “Children!”… Why?...

Answer: Because, it’s figurative language. That’s-right!... For, all who believe in,…The-Son / are: “Saved!”… Hence-forth, becoming part,…of,…His-Father’s-Family!... Yes!...

We, who-believe,…in / The-Son; are known as,…”Children-of-God!”..

Yet, many run,…to-quickly-claim,…that, here-too; Jesus, is declaring,…”His-God-Status!”… *(not-so)*

I-ask-you, dear reader: are we, “not-known-as”,…Babes-in-Christ?... *(especially-when-newly: converted)*

The-Son, sees us,…as / His-Father’s-Children!... It’s a salutation, expressing-endearment. Much like, when we call,…each-other: “Brothers-and-Sisters!”… Amen.

In, (v-15); We, like with,…Peter,…are / asked-by: Jesus!... To,…”Feed-the-Lambs!”… Those, new-to-our,…Faith!... Young, tender with emotions,…zealous / but; without any real, knowledge!... *(spiritually-speaking)*

In, (v-16); the,…”Sheep” / are more, mature; and well learned, as well,…finely-polished, with: “The-Father’s-Findings!”… Amen.

To,…”Tend” / to: them!... This means, that we aren’t,…to; let them,…go-off / alone: astray!... Swaying, to-and-fro, like a common reed: blowing in the wind.

Guard-and-keep, the faithful,…from the snares / and the; “Fiery-Darts-of-the-Devil”… Amen.

In, (v-17); and we do this, best,…by / “Feeding-the-Sheep!”… Yes!... Constantly, *(as-we-are, doing: right-now)*

We must, re-visit,…The-Word!... For, it nourishes our,…Spirit / with: Truth!... Amen.

In, (v-18); we must, guard-against-complacency. Especially, in our,…”Golden-Years!”… Why?...

Answer: Because, The-Devil,…will use / your-supposed: “ego!”… Against, you!... Yes!... That,…”Holier-than-Thou”,…attitude; many of us, tend to develop,…with: age!...

This, very-thing,…Satan / will-use; to dress you, and carry you,…where you / don’t-want-to: go!... Amen.

In-closing: Our-Apostle-John, only,…”Bears-Witness!”… About, our,…Jesus-the-Christ!... Yes!... Much, like our dearest,…Jesus-the-Christ!... He, always,…”Bears-Witness!”… About, His-Father’s-Kingdom!...

Yet, many,…still / don’t-understand: Him!... Why?...

Answer: Simply, because,…they do not / believe: at the end, of each day!... That’s-right!... Despite, having heard our,…gospel-message / they-still: “doubt!”…

These, are those,…who stand / as-being: “double-minded!”… Yes!... Lukewarm, about the very things,…of: Almighty-God!... *(Yahweh: His-Majestic-Name)*… Amen.

And, so,…we / shall-pray: for these. So, that-they,…may not / be: “spewed-out”, by our,…Saviour!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

Yes!... Present, to-this-time,…and / to-time-unfolding: beyond our imagining!... Amen.

Yes!... Father-and-Son!... Present!... And, most-active,…everywhere / on: Earth!... Present!... In the, growth-of-knowledge,…and / in-the-constant: searching-for-meaning… *(as-men / and: women)*

Yes!... The-Father!... The-Source and Sustainer, of all that,…exists!... And, it-is,…”Jesus-of-Nazareth” / Who, reveals-to-us; the good news, of our,…”connectedness” / with: His-Father!...

Yes!... Jesus!... The,…Very-One / Who, urges-us-to: Love!... Amen. Graciously-and-Generously, so that,…”God’s-Reign” / remains: established!...

Today, I-give-thanks,…for / who: we are. And, for all we,…have!... For, we-are-those,…who / commit to sharing; ourselves, with-all-peoples!...

May, others,…see-in-us / the-vision, and the compassion; we have possessed, in,…Jesus!... Amen. Mindful, we shall be,…of,…our-own: “existence!”… And, of-our-ability,…to / appreciate: all-that-exists!...

May,…”The-Spirit” / of – gratitude, be: self-evident!...

Dear-reader!... We, share-the-dignity,…of / participating in the, mystery: which this world, calls,…God!...

In-closing: “I-give-thanks, for the unfolding,…of / wisdom; which has brought, us,…(who-believe): to-this-moment, in,…time!”… Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

Jesus, teaches us,…that / “extravagant-generosity”; is truly a key,…”Characteristic-of-God!”…

May, what you are reading,…here / today; invite you to ponder, and to pray about,…your-own: “transformation!”…

What, motivates you to keep,…on / hoping-for-change; in others?...

Jesus, knew what it was,…like / to-be-in: “darkness!”… To feel, isolate. To need, to pray about things,…and / make-sense-of; what was happening,…in,…His-Life!...

Know-this-truth: In times of loss, pain-and-tragedy,…we / (His-Faithful-Followers); can turn to, Jesus!... Why?...

Today, I-am-Freed!... From, the notion of a,…living-God / Who; is ready to, hand out,…physical misfortune. Loss-or-Death, as a punishment. *(although; the wages of sin / is: Death)*

Our, Father-in-Heaven,…is / a: “Life-Giver!”… Yes!... Not, distant. Nor, any type of,…Manipulator!... No, sir!...

With, the,…”Conviction-of-Christ!”… I-for-one, believe that,…He / is, in-the-midst,…of-our, daily; sufferings. Our pain and loss. Yes!...

I-look-to, Him!... For my,…”Strength-and-Hope!”… *(especially; in-times-of, tragedy)* Amen. Jesus, never abandoned,…His-Belief / in: His-Father’s-Presence, with,…Him: at-all-times!...

So, don’t you: (“WHOSE-READING,…THIS: NOW”)!...

Let us,…”commit-ourselves” / as – Jesus: committed – Himself!... Yes!... *(whatever-the-circumstances)*

Let there, also be,…”space-and-room!”… Yes!... For, others,…to / grow; alongside of you!... *(the-believer)*

Demonstrate, to those around you,…the / unending-and-unbreakable; bonds of joy and of grace, which overflow generously from,…you!... Yes!... Why?...

Answer: Simply because, you believe in,…”The-Promises!”… Yes!... Of both / The-Father and His-Son!... Amen.

Strong-and-constant, they stand,…”together!”… Yes!... *(for-each-other)*

Celebrate, their,…”Presence!”… In, the ways in which,…you / come-to: Love!...

Jesus-of-Nazareth,…(“Broke”) / Himself; so that, He,…may thereafter / share; His-Fullness!... His-Whole-Self!... Yes!... *(with: whom-so-ever, wills)* Amen.

If, we believe in,…The-Son / then; we must also, believe in,…He: (meaning: His-Father)!... Who, sent us,…Jesus!...

So, live-on,…(“In”): Jesus!... As, He,…lives-on: (“In”),…His-Father!...

For, we-are-all,…as / One!... Yes!... IN – LOVE!...

In,…Vision-and-Cause!... In,…Mindset-and-Mission!... *(or-we-are: not)* Amen-and-Amen…
