WHEN-WILL-IT,…EVER: (“END”)?...

Friends!... Almighty-God, says that,…(“any-job”),…any / ministry: is-truly-profitable!... Amen. And, so,…don’t look / at-the-clock: wishing the time, away.

If you are, too,…exhausted / to-reach-out, with: God’s-Love, for others. Then, re-evaluate,…what / God: would-have-you,…do. In service, to,…Him!...

But, don’t hold-out,…on / serving: Him!... Simply-because, you are too,…”tired!”… He, gave us,…His / all, because,…of: His-Love!... Yes!...

Let us, respond in Love,…for / Him. And, give your all. Showing, His-Love,…to: others!... Amen.

I-for-one, will serve my mother,…until / her-last-day, here on: Earth!... Or, until I myself,…am / called: home!... Which-ever, comes,…first!... Even though, our circumstances are indeed,…most: trying!...

I-shall-always, remember that,…our / Saviour; out-of-Love, also suffered for us,…who: believe!... Yes!... That, sacrifice of Jesus,…inspires / me,…to persist; in my own,…”Triumphant-Suffering!”… Amen.

Folks!... Before, thoughts of heavy responsibility,…and unrelenting / demands, overwhelm you; turn your attention, to the,…Son-of-God!... Yes!...

He-is-Strong!... Completing the day’s tasks, will deplete your own,…resources / but-they-won’t; put a dent, on,…His!...

His-Father’s-Fingertip, exerts more strength,…in-a-moment / than-any-human, champion: could exert in,…(100-life-times)!...

The-Son, draws from,…His-Father’s: well. Do you?... Oh’, how-I-pray,…so!... Amen.

Our strong, resourceful,…God / (Yahweh): is willing to help, you-and-me. Who of us, looks forward to,…every / new-day?...

So, don’t,…give-up / you: “care-givers!”… Jesus, gives us the strength to go,…above-and-beyond: the call of, duty!...

No, He,…doesn’t / call-us, to be: martyrs!... (necessarily).

Yes, He,…does / want-us-to; give of ourselves, to help others,…in: need!... Amen.

So, live-this-day!... Yes!... To-its-fullest!... Both, The-Father and His-Son,…they / don’t-want-us; borrowing trouble, from the future. They, want us to see,…how / they-meet, our needs: on this particular, day!... Yes!...

Because, when we’re busy,…projecting / our-worries; on the days, ahead. We, tend-to-miss,…what / they-both, are doing; in our lives, right-now!... (by-in-and-thru: the very works, of the,…Holy-Spirit). Amen.

Yes!... Father, Son and Holy-Spirit!... Each, is ready to equip,…us / for-what-ever: comes next.

I-pray-that: “You, dear-reader. Let them, minister to you,…this day!”… (see: Matthew 6:34).

WHEN-WILL-IT,…EVER: (“END”)?...

Answer: For us, (“caregivers”), the burden,…rarely-becomes: lighter!... The weight, typically,…increases / yes!...

It sometimes, seems-that,…life’s-challenges / just: go-on and on. We can, grumble-and-crumble. Or, we can receive,…a / stamina, we never: thought possible!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

ARE-YOU,…ANCHORED: (“FIRMLY”)?...

Friends!... “Care-giving”,…entails a lot / of: loss!... As we often, find ourselves undergoing,…changes / in-our-careers, living situations; even the very ability, to attend,…church: at-will.

Faced with all that, it would be easy,…to / become; depressed-and-anxious!... And, if that’s all,…that / caring-for-an, aging,…human being: involved. Then, there would be much,…reason / for: sorrow!...

But, Almighty-God,…calls / all-of-us, “caregivers”; to-take-up, this cross,…for,…His: sake!...

We, (His-Son’s-Followers), who value human life,…as-a-gift / of: God!... And, who obey,…Him / in-caring, for it; dedicate our sacrifice, to our living,…God!... (and-not-to, any particular: person). Amen.

When, we,…as / care-givers, sacrifice one thing; God, in turn,…(by-in-and-thru: Jesus): blesses us, in-new-ways!... Yes!...

And, in-the-end. Any loss, we suffer,…will-be / so-much-less: than the gain!...

Tell-me: (dear-reader)!... “What better present, could a Christian,…offer / than, his-or-her; faithful service,…to: a loved,…one?”...

But, this gift,…is given / “twice!”… First, to,…God!... (by-in-and-thru, our service,…in: Christ-Jesus). And, secondly,…to / the: recipient-of-care!... Yes!...

It’s a, “two-for-one”,…gift / that earns: eternal-rewards!... Amen.

Helping, can be exhausting!... So, tell me: “Who, in turn,…helps-the-helper?”…

Answer: The-Holy-Spirit!... When, we are,…weak. He, is,…Strong!... When, we are,…vulnerable. He, is-our,…Shield!... When, we can no longer,…trust / in-our-own: resources. We, can trust,…Him!... Amen.

Yes!... This,…(“Other-Advocate”): is always there, ready-to-help!...

So, let us,…rejoice / in: Jesus!... As we, also,…praise / this-other: (“Spirit-of-Truth”)!...

Folks!... It is here, in this,…”spiritual-position” / where-we, will find; the necessary strength, to go,…on.

Dear-reader!... We, do have an,…anchor. Our, truest-hope,…lies-in-God!...(Yahweh). He, prevents our,…”drifting!”… How, so?...

Answer: By attaching, firmly,…our: Faith!... Yes!... To the unmoving, floor of the sea. You, see. God, is that,…”sea-bed”. Firm-and-Secure!... And, His-Son,…Jesus!... He, is the,…”Anchor!”… Connecting us, to the,…Father!... Yes!...

Our,…Anchor-of-Hope / is-deep-within, the very; sea-bed,…of,…God!... Amen. His-Name,…is: (“Jesus-of-Nazareth”)!...

We, are not,…adrift. We are securely, fastened to,…God!... (by-in-and-thru: Jesus-the-Christ)!... Yes!...

No, you’re not crazy. Anymore, than,…I-Am!... Many of us, often-times feel,…lost-and-confused. As, “care-givers”,…we’ll have many,…stormy-times!...

But, we are held,…firm-and-secure / by-God’s-Anchor: Jesus!... (God’s-own-Son, our very own: Lord-and-Saviour)!... Amen – and – Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

WE-CAN’T-GO,…(“WRONG”)!...

Friends!... Do we worry, that our faith,…isn’t-as-strong / as-it-should: be?...

Is this, why,…we find ourselves / complaining; about every little, thing?... Precisely?...

Many times, we feel that,…we can’t / share-our-thoughts; with others. Because, we don’t want to,…depress: them.

Maybe, it’s because we don’t want,…to be seen / as: weak-or-complaining?...

So, we keep those feelings,…bottled-up / inside: yes!... Tell-me: (dear-reader),…”How many times, do we suffer with our,…inner-most-thoughts?... When, we could be sharing them,…with / say: The very, Son-of-God?”... Yes!... (our-dearest: Jesus).

It’s how, we best reach,…His-Heavenly-Father!... (Yahweh)… Yes!... By-in-and-thru: The-Son!... Amen.

In reality, we can’t hide any thoughts,…from / The-Father,…nor: His-Son!... (see: Luke 5:22).

So, why not release the tension,…and / share?... Admit-your-fears!... Tell-them, you’re,…tired!... We, can freely-admit,…when our hope / is: failing. Yes!...

Father, Son and Holy-Spirit!... All-three, are ready to hear us,…out / and to minister,…to us: accordingly!... Amen.

Anxious-thoughts, beset,…us!... Our, dreams-and-plans,…are put on / hold. We, may wish,…we could be / somewhere: else. It, can all,…add-up / to-a-restless: spirit!...

As, we,…(“Jesus’-Faithful-Followers”); chafe at the unfairness,…of: Life!... Yes!...

But, Almighty-God,…asks-us-to / quiet-our-spirits, before: Him!... Yes!... To, submit,…to / His-Will: for us!...

As, people-of-God,…we-must-wait / expectantly, for God,…to work; all-things, for our better-good. And, for,…ultimately: His-own-Glory!... Amen. (see: Romans 8:28).

Folks!... God, is still in the,…”caregiving-business!”… He’s, the best in the,…business: yes!... And, this should motivate us,…as-we / set-out,…to care: for others.

If we, imitate,…His-Son’s / examples; not just in actions, and in deeds,…but / with-our: motives-and-intents.

Then,…WE-CAN’T-GO…(“WRONG”)!... No, sir!...

And, when we feel,…overwhelmed; Jesus, has encouraged us,…to,…cast-our-cares / on: Him!... Yes!... Why?...

Answer: Because, both the,…Father and Son / care-for-us: so very, much!... Amen.

So, run to,…Jesus!... With, your,…struggles!... Trust,…His-Heavenly-Father!... (Who, is also: yours).

They, will set you,…on / your-feet: again. Yes!...

To,…”care-for-others!”… For, it’s what we do,…best: Amen.

Friends!... “Caregiving”,…true-caregiving / is-an-art; one which is modeled, by the greatest,…Artist / (“Yahweh”): of-all-times!... Amen.

Take, our prophet,…(“Elijah”)!... God, met this man,…in / his: weariness!... Yes!... God, gave him,…a-new-assignment / and assured,…him, that; he was not,…alone!... No, sir!...

God, promised him that,…the situation / would-be-made: right!... And, so,…the same / is-most-true: for both, you-and-me!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

THIS-IS-STEADFAST,…AND: (“FOREVER”)!...

Friends!... A-sure-fire, way,…to battle,…”weariness” / is-by-praising,…our: Heavenly-Father!... Especially, (by-in-and-thru: imitating, His-Son’s-Steps)… Yes!...

Our immediate circumstances, don’t need to control,…the moment / nor: identify us, completely. No, sir!...

Lean, on the promises. March, onward as,…Christian-Soldiers!... Gaze, upon that,…Cross / for: The-Father is listening, to the rhythm,…of our: hearts-and-minds!... Yes!...

Dear-reader!... Have you ever, noticed when our,…bodies-and-spirits / weaken,…that, our prayers; (even the most, desperate ones), just become more,…and / more: Powerful?...

It’s in our,…”emptiness” / as-we-ask: “Lord, Jesus, how much more,…can-I-bear?”… Yes!... It’s here, that,…He / soon-thereafter, comes: to our,…aid.

Both, The-Father and His-Son,…know / the-needs-of,…their: over-burdened-people. And, though,…we, (His-Son’s-Followers); may not spend, much time in,…Bible-Study / Church-Attendance,…and: prayers. God, is still,…watching-over: us!... Yes!...

Listening, carefully, (by-in-and-thru: The-Holy-Spirit’s, Meditating)!... For, ours,…are truly / helpless-communications: Yes!... Often, we ourselves,…know-not / how,…or-for-what,…we ought: to pray!...

Then, only,…then / God: answers-powerfully!... Yes!... In ways, He,…many never have / responded: in less, demanding times!...

We, don’t need to,…pray-perfectly,…or / read; several chapters, of,…Scripture!... (daily). God, knows. Yes!... What, we’re capable of…

Hence, blessing us,…many times / over!... *(all-accordingly)*

Even, perhaps,…well-beyond / what-we-feel: we actually, deserve!... Amen.

Folks!... (Yahweh),…The-One-Whose,…(“STEADFAST-LOVE-ENDURES,…FOREVER”): He, never deserts those,…He: Loves!... No, sir!...

He, sets-us-Free!... Even, in the midst of,…our-many-chores / responsibilities-and-impossible: days!...

Jesus, (“wept”),…in-front-of,…others. He, cried-out-to,…His-Father!... Neither,…”fear-nor-pride”,…stopped / Him, from otherwise; expressing,…”His-Painful-Emotions!”…

Jesus, knew that,…His-Father / would-hear: His-Cries!... Yes!... (and-come-to: His-Aid). Amen.

And, so,…the same / holds-true,…for us: Yes!... (if only: you believe).

Friends!... We,…”caregivers” / have many needs, to,…fulfill: yes!... Our-own, as well as,…those,…of our: loved-ones. Constant, demands and interruptions,…take their / toll,…on our: well-being!... Yes!...

But, when we,…(“make-time”): to spend time, with,…Jesus!... We’ll find,…”His-Strength” / flowing: by-in-and-thru,…us!...

And, we’ll be,…better-able-to / cope-and-manage: our-every-day!... As we, meditate on,…His-Father’s-Goodness / we bring; much needed,…”vitality!”… (to-our-frazzled: beings)… Yes!...

Best-of-all, as we pray,…we / connect with,…both: The-Father and His-Son!... Our, ultimate,…”caregivers!”…

They, love,…us: they understand our,…challenges. And, they give us,…the necessary / strengths,…to: carry-on!... Yes!...

(by-in-and-thru: that-other,…Advocate)!... The-Holy-Spirit!... Commissioned-and-Ordained, by,…The-Father!... Yes!... And, done so,…upon / The-Son’s-own: request. Amen.

Why?...

Answer: To lead us,…(“ultimately”),…to: (“All-Truths”)!... Amen.

Folks!... Father, Son and Holy-Spirit!... Each, is still there. Ready to empower, us,…with / their: Love!... Yes!... So, we can accomplish,…(“The-Father’s-Purposes”)!... Amen.

*(it’s-why-we,…were created: yes!... To, worship,…our: Creator)*

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

ARE-YOU-FEELING,…(“LOST”)?...

Friends!... We’re often, faced with what seems,…to be / insurmountable: circumstances. The natural tendency, is-to-try,…to / take-charge; and to do, whatever is,…necessary!...

Folks!... On our own, we’ll inevitably,…wear-out. Only, The-Father, Son and Holy-Spirit’s,…supernatural-powers; can allow us, to keep pace with,…the rigors / and: pressures-of-life!...

Almighty-God’s, own ability to make good,…from / everything; (even-our-poor, decisions and our attempts, to do everything; in-our-own,…strength), is a promise,…we-should-rest,…in!...

The-Father, His-Son and the,…Holy-Spirit!... Yes!... All-Three, of them are our,…truest-strength: Amen!...

Each, fulfilling their unique,…role. Each, desiring most that,…we / come-to-an, earnest: repentance!... Yes!...

God’s-Fight, for you,…is / with: Satan and His-Insurgents!... **(although-the-Son, has won: The-Victory, already. It’s always been known, that,…smaller-skirmishes / exist: prior-and-after, any major War)**

**Never-the-less, this is what we,…personally / combat-with: daily. But, know that the,…Big-Battle: has been won. Yes!... Jesus,…Holds-The-Victory!... Praise-God!... And, today,…you can / claim: yours. By-in-and-thru, Jesus’-Powerful-Name!**... Amen.

Dear-reader!... Often, when we read our,…Bible; we tend to miss, its practicality. In,…(see: Ephesians 2:10)… Our, Apostle-Paul,…tells us / that; we-are-created, for,…”good-works!”… Yes!...

Which, God,…has / before: ordained. Yes!... That, we should walk,…in / them!...

“Good-Works”,…is-not-a / mystery; that we have to meditate, on,…to: find!... We, (“Jesus’-Faithful-Followers”); just need to see, the needs around,…us: and-meet-them!... It is because, of our existing,…Faith / that we, in turn: do so many, free-will,…”works!”…

For your information, it is also,…the / “only-thing”: which indeed, does follow us. Yes!... Into, the,…”here-after!”… That’s-right!... (“Good-Works”)!... For, Faith,…without / “works”: is complete, dead in its,…tracks!... Amen.

Yes!... As, God,…gives-us / the strength-and-resources: to-do-so!... We, shall continue to exercise,…”Good-Works!”… **(this is a topic, very – misconstrued: by many)**

Good-Works, does not,…Save / us: it is because, we recognize our,…”Salvation” / that-inherently, we; as a result, compel ourselves,…toward: many-good-works!...,…Amen.

Friends!... Breathe, deeply,…of / God’s-Goodness!... Fill your heart, with,…His-Son’s / Kindness; bask-in-the, Holy-Spirit’s,…(“works”)!... Yes!...

Rest, in their care,…all-three-of: them. Each, independent,…though / One: Yes!... One-in-Unity!... One-in-Vision!... One-in-Mindset, and: Mission!... Amen.

Our, Heavenly-Father, (Yahweh); delights in pouring-out,….His: Mercy-and-Grace!… Bow, before,…His-Son / and receive, many: precious-gifts!... Yes!...

Folks!... Collectively, all-three,…will / light-your-path, and: give-you, direction!... Amen.

Dear-reader!... The effects of sin, in our world,…have created / the present, situations; in which we, find ourselves in. But, we are never,…abandoned!... No, sir!... Never!...

Even, when,…health-and-technology,…fail; we must remember,…God’s-Mercy: it has, (Not),…changed!...

He, (by-in-and-thru: His-Son), redesigns lives. Hope,…remains!... Know-this-one, truth!...

No misery, can completely over-take,…us / when-we-walk: faithfully with, Almighty-God!... (Yahweh: His-Glorious-Name)… Amen.

“Fog”,…prevents us / from seeing; what lies ahead. Just as, our,…fears-and-worries: can also. Will we, be able to handle,…the stress / or make; the right decisions?...

There are so many, “Unknowns” / and when, we can’t see; beyond our present, situation,…it’s / very-easy: to feel,…(“Lost”)!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

SPIRITUALLY,…(“SPEAKING”)!...

Friends!... Whatever our struggles, we have someone,…who / sees-our-path: clearly!... God’s-Word, says that,…He / goes-ahead,…of-us: Yes!...

The first-step, on this path,…isn’t really / ours,…because, God-Himself; has already taken,…it: (by-in-and-thru: His-Son)!... Yes!... We are always, led by,…Jesus: through whatever, lies ahead. Amen.

Jesus, knows,…”The-Way!”…

Folks!... There’s no better, guide-or-companion,…for / this-life’s: journey!... That’s-right!... Jesus, knows,…The-Father!... Like, none-other!...

As, the very foot,…of / His-Father’s-Throne, becomes: our truest,…“destination!”… Amen.

When, the demands of our lives,…become / too-much; it’s tempting to stop, right where we are,…and, beg; Almighty-God, to release us,…from / our: circumstances!... Yes!...

As,…”caregivers” / caring; for our own, physical needs,…should be / “high”: on-our-priority, list. Ask God, for wisdom to evaluate,…your / lifestyle; and if necessary, to show you,…the steps: you should take.

We must, sustain our physical,…well-being!... Amen. Yes, this is just as,…important,…as / our: hearts, minds and spirit.

It may take, some,…up-front / effort, but the dividends; will be,…well-worth,…it.

Dear-reader!... Have you noticed, that the more complex,…life / becomes; the easier, it is for us,…to: lose our perspective?...

Maybe, we begin to feel,…that / we-weren’t, supposed to be,…the,…”caregiver”: after-all?...

That, there must be someone,…else / who-can,…handle: all-the-stuff, which comes up. Someone, who can do it,…more / graciously: that-we-can. Yes!...

Did God, really say,…we / should: do this?...

Friends!... This, is-the-time,…”Faith” / really-comes: into play. Our living God, has given us,…this / task; and we, (His-Son’s-Followers), must believe that,…not-only, has,…God / asked-us, to do this: job. But, He’s,…also / given-us,…an abundance, of mental, emotional-and-physical,…supplies!... Yes!...

And, not-just-once. No, sir!... But, rather,…over-and-over: every single, morning.

(“RARELY,…CAN-WE-SEE”)!... Yes!...

Our way, is not always,…very: clear. But, we can believe that,…God / has-the-situation,…under: “His-Perfect-Control”… Amen.

We, can believe that,…our / Creator, will-work-it: all. Yes!... Ultimately, for,…His-own: Glory!...

And, for the good,…of ourselves,…and / of those: around us!... Amen. As we learn, to become,…more-and-more / dependent upon,…the: Holy-Spirit!... We, will trust,…both: The-Father and His-Son!... More-and-more!... Yes!...

Our – Faith, though,…it may have, begun / as the size; of a mustard-seed. Will, eventually-grow-into,…a: “Mighty-Tree!”…

We, are created,…to,…”connect” / with: others. Especially, in difficult times. “Isolation”,…from other / human-bonding; typically results, in mental,…depravity.

And, emotional,…unbalancing / of-our: God-Given-Reasoning!... Yes!... Demons, usually,…end-up, possessing / those who, part themselves: from-the-warmth,…of: others!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

MY-FOREVER,…(“STORY”)!...

Patience, Friends!... Allow, Jesus,…Who / bore-all-things,…for us; to shape you, into,…His-own-Image!... Amen.

Yes!... Life, can become complicated and demanding. Today, I pray that: “You, dear-reader, fill your heart with,…hope. Yes!... Soar, above your problems,…with / total-confidence,…in our: living God!”... (Yahweh: His-Majestic-Name).

Many challenges, in this present life,…can / indeed: shake us!... We face, financial-troubles, inadequate health,…family-and-personal: issues. The list, can be long.

Under, such pressures,…it’s easy / to: feel alone. Yes!... Even, deserted by,…God!... But, God,…never / deserts: His-own!... No, sir!... Maybe, we’re deserting,…Him / by-assuming,…that; He’s the source, of such,…problems?...

How many of us, are blaming,…God / for-our: hardships?... Know-this-truth. Our, doubts’-and-bitterness,…can / push-a-wedge; between us and our,…Creator!... Yes!...


“Rise”,…against-your-challenges!... Don’t-dwell, on them,…without seeking,…solutions. Because, this leaves us,…in /pain: wise-actions, bring,…solutions.

Folks!... By, setting-our-eyes,…on / Jesus, and His-Father; (our-ultimate, Authority), we need never, be,…”shaken!”…

Their strength, (including: The-Holy-Spirit’s); will guide us, if only we,…(“seek”),…it: consistently!... Amen.

So, reach-out,…to / both: The-Father and His-Son!... They’re standing, there,…right-next-to,…you.

Dear-reader!... Jesus, like His,…Father / already - (“are”)… That, you and me,…(”exist”) / now, is cause; enough,…for,…”rejoicing!”…

Keep your eyes, focused on your,…problems,…and / you’ll have: “mayhem!”… Yes!... But, focus-on-Jesus,…(daily) / and you’ll,…have: Peace!...

The Faith, of a,…caregiver,…is / often: “tested!”… But, experience,…teaches / us, to,…appreciate; the very gift,…of,…”testing!”…

For,…”perseverance” / blesses,…the committed: Christian!... Especially, those engaged in a,…godly,…(“care-ministry”)!... Amen.

Any, caregiver,…can / testify, to-the-need; for daily,…”perseverance!”… Yes!...

As, we progress in,…caregiving / we’ll-discover,…that; a-well-developed,…Faith; is a great blessing, that keeps us,…going: yes!...

Especially, when details are many,…and / positive-results: so very, few!...

So, let’s do our,…jobs / today, and let our – Jesus: look ahead, for us.

Friends!... It’s good, to remember that,…both / The-Father and His-Son, view everything; in light of,…(“Eternity”)!... Yes!...

Neither, is limited,…by: Time!... So, when they see,…your / life; they view it, as-a-forever,…(Story)!...

Yes!... They know, (along-with: The-Holy-Spirit); that this season, you’re walking,…(by-in-and-thru): won’t last, forever!... No, sir!...

All-Three, also know,…(as-well: The-Angelic-Realm); that, one day,…you will look / back, on this time: in your life. And, view it,…as-a-gift!... Amen.

Today, I-thank-them,…All / for: making-it-beautiful… Yes!... (In-their-own-Time)…

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

MY-WHISPERED,…(“PRAYER”)!...

Friends!... There’s a day coming, when,…all-of-your / hardship; all-of-your hard work, the countless hours spent,…caring / for one, in need; your pain and theirs, all-of-it,…will turn / into a priceless, treasure: to you!... Yes!...

The memories, will-indeed-be,…most: precious!... Amen.

Take, The-Biblical-Character,…of / “Dorcas!”… (see: Acts 9:39)

She, spent her life,…as-a-servant. She, was a follower of,…Christ-Jesus!... Are you?... Oh’, how I pray,…so!...

She, was full of,…”good-works” / and of alms-deeds!... (see: Acts 9:36)

She, did this,…continually!... Yes!... Scripture, doesn’t itemize her,…”works!”… But, we do know that,…she / sewed-coats and garments; and she took care, of many widows.

We know, that,…when / she-died; many people, grieved. And, when they heard that,…The-Apostle / Peter, was nearby; they asked him, to come!... *(apparently-believing-that, Peter: could raise, the dead)*

And, that’s,…what / Peter: did!... By-in-and-thru, Peter’s-Praying,…he / raised: “Dorcas!”… And, returned her,…to: “service!”… Amen.

“Dorcas”,…had given her / life; to serving, our living,…God!... (Yahweh: His-Infinite-Name)

And, now,…God / had-given-her, back: her life!...

Dear-reader!... Many times, our,…day-to-day / caregiving-responsibilities, disconnect us; from others. And, at times,…even / from: Almighty-God!... Yes!...

We know, God,…is-out-there / but, we; sense no immediate,…”presence!”…

“Where are, You,…God?”…

“I-do-believe. Help me overcome, my,…unbelief!”… Yes!... This becomes, our-whispered-prayer!...

Know-this-truth: God, hears the prayers of those,…who / believe in: His-Son!... So, what-about those others,…who-don’t / believe in: Jesus?...

Are they, being heard,…by / God?...

Answer: I’ll let you, reduce the reality!...

*(believers in Jesus, pass from Judgment,…into: life-eternal)*

The fatigue-and-numbness, of caregiving,…occasionally / blocks us, from finding both: The-Father and His-Son!...

Glimpses-of-God, are everywhere. If, we’ll only pay,…attention: to them. He and His-Son, are waiting for us,…to / meet: them.

We caregivers, can slide into negative thinking,…when-we-see / our-loved-ones: limitations. But, if we choose to thank,…God / for-even-the, tiniest-pleasures; like those refreshing moments, of,…laughter.

For, the bright-rays of,…sunshine; streaming through our window. Yes!... We, (Jesus’-Faithful-Followers), can indeed rejoice,…in-the-hope!...

What,…Hope?...

Answer: Of being,…”Resurrected!”… Yes!... Onto,…Life-Eternal…

So, in closing: Treasure the moments, God,…has given / you, with your; loved-ones. And, always remember the hope,…we / possess in: Christ-Jesus!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

ARE – YOU,…(“SAVED”)?...

Friends!... Do you, sometimes find yourself,…saying: “I just can’t, take-it-anymore!”…

If so, then,…run-to-both / The-Father, and: His-Son!... Yes!...

Sometimes, the sacrificial roles,…Almighty-God / asks-us-to,…assume; can last for days, months,…even: years!... *(in-my-case: these last 28-years, hold true)*

When, no one seems,…to / appreciate,…us; we will find, spiritual-support and the affirmation,…we need / in both: The-Father and His-Son!... Amen.

Your prayers, may-not-be,…answered / in-the-way; you had hoped, they would. We are those, who,…although / we-know-that; this world’s future, looks very grim. We still, cling to a trace of,…Hope!... Yes!...

For both, our healing and our restoration. By contrast, I-find-that,…within / the-general-masses, this hope; of which we, speak. Has been extinguished, by,…”pessimism-and-bitterness!”…

Folks!... Learn to,…”pull-back” / and,…let; The-Son of God, refresh you. Take that, necessary time, for yourselves.

Our living God, doesn’t expect that,…we / handle; every problem, on-our-own. No, sir!... He, wants us to approach,…Him / by-in-and-thru: His-Son!... *(with-our-needs)*

Dear-reader!... I will always, insist on this,…one / truth: “Prayer, does change things!”… Amen.

When, we lean on,…The-Father’s-Promises / we’ll see: His-Son, at work!... *(as, close behind; The-Holy-Spirit, wages war for us / who: believe)*

Yes!... *(Against, evil-and-fallen / dark-forces)*

Friends!... When, we step into the,…Holy-Spirit’s / care; and when we begin, to place our,…hope-and-trust, in: The-Son!...

It is,…”The-Father” / Who,…there-after; changes our, every – day – lives!... Yes, sir!...

God’s-Love, will forever guide,…our – steps / along-this-road,…of: life!... His-Son, has taught me,…to / step-away: momentarily. Yes!...

To, take-a-deep,…breath / and-then: “proceed!”…

My courage, is,…”borrowed” / just-like-my: time here, on this Earth!… Even, if our direction is unclear,…it’s / The-Holy-Spirit; who directs us, (by-in-and-thru: all these necessary, turns-and-twists).

Self doubt, and feelings of powerlessness,…invade-the-minds / of: many. Not, us!... Why?...

Answer: We, live-a-hope. Yes!... Eternal. Everlasting!... Glorious-and-Wondrous!...

All other guarantees, feel uncertain and most,…unpredictable!... But, not my,…God’s-Guarantee!... No, sir!...

I’m,…”justified” / by: His-Son’s, shed blood. Yes!... I’m an,…”heir” / in: God’s-Kingdom!... Yes!... How, so?...

Answer: Because, I-believe-in,…Jesus’ / spoken-words; the very Jesus, whom,…The-Father / has sent,…to: us!...

And, if I believe in,…Jesus!... Then, I must also believe,…in / He; Who, by-in-and-thru,…His-Son / promises me: “an-eternal-inheritance!”… Yes!...

In closing: Believing in, The-Son,…Who / speaks-only-about: His-Father’s-Kingdom!... This, my dear reader,…equates / to inheriting: “eternal-life!”…

Why?...

Answer: Because, it’s what,…The-Father / has-set-forth: as the criteria, to meet. Yes!... Learn, what,…Jesus / teaches!... And, believe in,…His-Words!...

The-Father, will be pleased!... And, in the end: you will be,…”Saved!”… Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

TO-YOU,…THE: (“CALLED”)!...

Friends!... Whoever, believes in Jesus, (The-Son-of-God); will not be, put-to-shame!... No, sir!... (see: Romans 9:33).

Then, what is it,…we: Fear?...

Folks!... Our Apostle Paul, speaks the truth,…in: Christ-Jesus!... He, is not lying. His conscience, bears him,…”witness!”… In the, Holy-Spirit!... Amen. (see: Romans 9:1).

As Paul, speaks to the,…Romans; he feels much, sorrow-and-anguish. Why?...

Answer: Because, he knows that,…his-own-kinsmen / The-Jews,…are; “cursed-and-cut-off!”… Yes!... From, Salvation!... *(except for a / remnant-class)*… (see: Romans 9: 27). Amen.

To the Israelites, belong many things. The Patriarchs, the Adoption, the Glory, the Covenants and the,…Promises!... (v. 4).

Note-well, please,…in: (v.5). Paul speaking, here,…”figuratively!”… According to the flesh, and to their,…”race”: Jesus belongs to the, Jews!... (as-a-direct / descendant).

Paul, also declares, (figuratively),…that, Jesus is: (“God”)!... Over-all. Yes!...

But, (v.5); ends with the very words: (“Blessed-Forever”)!... Yes!...

In the flesh, we can all see,…The-Son / as-if-He, were: God!... (Himself). Again, we must always consider,…who / is-saying: what?...

When we measure, well,…Jesus’-own-utterances; The-Son always, claims,…The-Father / as-being: Superior, to Himself!... *(spiritual-discernment / is called for: here)*…

But, considering the deeper spiritual-connotations,…here: “Who is it, that,…Blesses: Jesus!... Forever?”…

Answer: His-Father!... (Yahweh-His-Name). Amen.

**(Yes!... After-all, Jesus,…has received / the very keys; to the new, “Heavens-and-Earth!”… Given to Him, by,…His-Father!... His Exaltation, His Resurrection, His,…”Recompense-and-Rewards” / all-come-from: His-Father!... Even today, He,…sits / at-the: Right-Hand, of,…God!... A spiritual-position, of much power-and-reckoning. Overseeing, many other,…”powers-and-principalities!”… In High-Heavenly-Places!)**... Amen.

A direct-result, of,…”Jesus’-Perfect-Obedience”,…in fulfilling: His-Father’s-Will…

Yes, New!... Soon, we shall occupy incorruptible bodies. In a twinkling-of-an-eye, no more decay.

Answer: Yes!... With respect, to the life,…to: “come!”… Yet-future. Why?...

Answer: Because, Satan, (of-God’s-own: will); still holds the title, of,…ruler. *(of-this-present, dispensational: era)*…

This-Dark-One, is the ruler of the,…(“Air”)!... *(not-for-much, longer: though)*… Amen.

Dear-reader!... Paul, in chapter 9 of,…”Romans”; drives home, a simple point. Most clearly, yes!... True off-springs, are not merely considered,…those / who-descend, from: Israel. No, sir!...

The,…”Children-of-the-Promise”,…are those / who; in the end, are,…(“counted”)!... Or, “numbered”,…if-you-will. How-so?...

Answer: By-Faith!... I pray that, you are exercising,…yours!...

Yes!... God’s-own-purpose, of election,…continues. Not because, of,…”works!”… No, sir!... But, because of,…Him / (God): Who – calls!... (see: Romans 9: 8,11).

Let’s remember, that,…God, either: Loves-or-Hates!... Yes!... According to our, “Obedience-or-Rebellion!”… Amen… (verse 13).

God, has,…Mercy: on-whom-ever, He,…”Wills!”… And, He,…also / “hardens-the-hearts”,…of: whom-ever-He,…”Wills!”…

It’s His, prerogative!...

The-Potter, owns the clay. And, molds it,…as / He; sees-fit. (see: Romans 9:17, 21-23).

In-closing: We, (“Jesus’-Faithful-Followers”), must pursue all-things,…by-in-and-thru: (“Faith”)!... Amen. (see: Romans 9: 32).

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

THIS-IS-OUR,…TRUEST: (“DESTINATION”)!...

Friends!... As I review, chapter 10 / of-the-book, called: “Romans!”… This is what, I receive,…as: The-Spirit, leads!... Amen.

Our Apostle Paul, deeply yearns for his,…kinsmen / to-be: “Saved!”… **(The-Jewish-Nation)**

Many of us, possess-a-zeal for,…God!... But, not according to any real,…”Knowledge!”… (see: Romans 10: 1-2).

Even today, we tend to seek our own,…”Righteousness!”… And, not that of,…Almighty-God!...

Folks!... To everyone, who believes that our,…Jesus / is the: Son-of-God!... And, that,…He / was-raised-from; among the Dead, by,…His-Father!... Salvation, is offered. Amen.

Hence, Jesus,…is / the-rhyme-and-reason, of our: “Faith!”… Yes!... ( v. 4 ).

“The-Word”, which is to say,…Christ-Jesus!... He, is near all who,…”believe!”… Yes!... For, if He,…is in our / hearts,…then, His-Father: “justifies-us!”… Because we know, about,…”Jesus’-Shed-Blood!”...

And, if,…Jesus,…remains / in-our-lips,…then, because of our; constant-confessions,…God, (His-Father): “Saves-Us!”… Amen. (see: Romans 10: 9-11 ).

Is Jesus, your,…Lord?... Do you believe, that,…God / raised,…Him: from among the, Dead?...

If so, you,…will-be: “Saved!”… Amen.

But, you must go beyond,…believing: yes!... It’s in the,…”testifying” / of-this-belief, that lies: your-eternal-destiny.

And, I-dare-add,…that-this-involves / telling it; not just to another, believer. But, also to the unbeliever. Telling it, to the Agnostic and/or the,…undecided!... Telling it, to the countless other,…Christian-Denominational-Entities!... *(Telling it to, The-Buddhist, The-Muslim, The-Hindu,…alike)*...

Dear-reader!... There’s much,…”Power!”… Yes!... In-our-spoken, words!... Amen.

“How beautiful are the feet, of those who preach,…the-good-news!”… (see: Romans 10:15 ).

But, even among those who,…have-heard; these have not, (“all”): obeyed the gospel. Why?...

Answer: Because, they do not,…believe!... ( v. 16 ).

So,…”Faith” / comes-from: hearing!... And, hearing,…through / the-spoken-words,…of: Christ-Jesus!... Amen. ( v. 17 ).

**(And, not,…”by-in-and-thru, what others,…say; not even, those-other-authors, included in our,…Bible: these all, figuratively-interpret,…Jesus’-Words!”)**...

I-too-believe, that,…since,…days-of-old / “The-Word”,…of God; has already, gone out,…to all: the Earth!... And, even,…to-the-ends / of: the world. ( v. 18 ). Yes!...

Yet, the planet,…remains a,…(“disobedient-and-contrary”): people!... ( v. 21 ).

I-today, in closing: Profess-the-following, testimony. Of my own, free-will-choice,…I choose / Christ-Jesus!... *( as my: Lord-and-Saviour)* And, His-Father,…His-God: is also, my,…God!... **(Yahweh and/or: Jehovah, if you prefer)**

For, there exist,…no-greater-promises,…for my: tomorrow. No, sir!... What is shared, by Jesus,…is readily / available,…to: whom-so-ever, wills. Amen.

I-today, am guaranteed,…”an-eternal-inheritance” / yes: unspeakable riches, in,…God’s-Glory!... Why?...

Answer: Because, I believe in the,…Son!... **(a criteria, set-forth-by; His-Father!... Which, must be,…met. By all those, who seek,…Salvation)**

P.S. If you believe, The-Son!... Then, you must also,…believe / in: He!... *(His-Father)*… Who, has sent us,…Jesus!... The message is clear. “Follow-Me!”… *(into the: Son’s-Saving-Sheepfold)*… Yes!... Jesus,…is / The-Way!... And,…The-Great-Throne / of: His-Father’s-Judgement!... This, is,…(“Our-Truest-Destination!”)... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

LET’S-LOVE,…ONE: (“ANOTHER”)!...

Friends!... Only those, who patiently and in earnest,…take-the-time / to read; a complete chapter, at-a-time,…can expect / to capture: Christ-Jesus’, spoken words!... Amen.

In reviewing, (see: John Chapter 14); in its entirety, here’s what I receive. As the Spirit, leads!... *(read the whole chapter)*…

Note-well, how Jesus,…unequivocally / distinguishes, Himself, apart from: His-Father!... (see: v-1)

“Let not, your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also, in,…Me!”…

Here, The-Son,…clearly / speaks-of-two; separate and uniquely-proper, entities. Hence, his uttered word,…of: (“also”)!... Amen.

Folks!... It is,…”through”,…Jesus; that we can, come to the,…Father!... (see: v-6)

His-Father, (Yahweh); has set-forth, a criteria for our,…”Salvation!”… And, it all,…”hinges-on” / Jesus!... (His-Son).

Yet,…”The-Religionists”,…merge-them, as being literally; one in the same, entity. *(wrongly-so)* The world and the various, Christian-Denominational-Groups,…run: to point out, what they misinterpret,…as truth. In the end, to only,…stumble-upon: our Rock!... *(which is to say – Jesus)* (see: v-9)

Know this truth: We, “gravely-err”,…the moment, we begin to,…”cling-on” / only to: one-liner-phrases. We, (“Jesus’-Faithful-Followers”), must weigh the complete-context,…found-in: “entire-chapters!”… Yes!...

“Whoever, has seen,…Me. Has seen, The-Father!”… (Jesus-speaking). Yes!...

Yet, we easily forget that,…He / purposely-spoke-in: parables!... Why?...

Answer: Because, “the-mysteries”,…are to be / revealed-only-to; those who truly, have ears to hear,…and: eyes-to-see!... Amen.

Dear-reader, for the last 20 years,…I’ve-been-trying / to tell, the world; about the,…”Simplicity-of-Christ!”… Amen.

Jesus, can’t make it,…any-clearer!... (see: v-10)

“Do you not believe, that Jesus is in the,…Father?... And, that-the,…Father / is-in: Jesus?”… The words, Jesus’-speaks to us,…are / (“Not”): His-own!... No, sir!...

They are, of the,…Father!... Who, (“dwells”) / in: Jesus!... Yes!... In other words, Jesus is,…God’s own / Spokesperson: God’s own, Sounding Board, Advocate for Humanity, Mediator and Intercessor!... Amen.

Jesus’-works, are of the,…Father!... *(working-in-by-and-thru: His-Son)*

It’s, The-Father,…Who / is: “Glorified!”… Why?...

Answer: As a direct result, of The-Son’s,…unmatched / “Obedience!”… Amen. (see: v-13)

Jesus, is always asking,…His-Father / for: “all-things!”… And, it’s the,…Father / Who: eagerly-and-willingly, gives us,…(“Another-Helper”)!... A-Third-Entity!... Separate, uniquely-and-independent,…of-both: The-Father and His-Son!... Yes!...

Friends!... It’s about, (“an-indwelling”): tell me, is God,…”indwelling” / in: you?... Is, Jesus,…”indwelling” / with: you?... Is, The-Holy-Spirit,…”indwelling” / with: you?... Oh’, how-I-pray: so!...

Note-well, how,…Jesus / promises, this: “indwelling!”… (see: v-20)

“Jesus, in-the-Father!... Us, (who-believe); are in Jesus!... And, Jesus,…is-in: us!”… *(we-are-one)*

Pay attention, to: (John 14: 23)

“If anyone loves, Me. He, (or-she), will keep,…(My-Word)!… And, My-Father,…will love / him, (or-her). And,…(WE); will come to him, (or-her). And, make,…(OUR-HOME or ABODE); with him, (or-her)!”… Amen.

Tell me: Why, would Jesus,…use the words: “WE”,…and,…”OUR” / if indeed,…both; The-Father and His-Son, weren’t,…(“two-separate-entities”)?... Where’s, our,…God-Given-Reasoning / gone?...

Use it, please,…people!... *(or-lose-it)* Amen.

(read: v-24)… The-Father,…”speaks-through” / His-Son!... Jesus, is,…God’s-Best-Advocate!... *(for-all-things)*

The-Holy-Spirit, is also sent to us,…by / The-Father!... (see: v-26) Everything, that the,…Father / does; He does it, in,…Jesus’-Name!... Why?...

Answer: Because, both,…The-Father and His-Son,…”Glorify!”… *(each-other. And, one-another: in everything they say, and do)* Amen. Yes!...

By-in-and-thru: all-their-actions!... And, in-closing: Don’t, miss-out-on,…(John 14: 28)…

“If you love, Jesus!... You, would rejoice,…because / He’s back, with: His-Father!... For, The-Father,…is / truly: (Greater-than),…Jesus!”… Amen.

The last verse, (30): clearly states, that,…Jesus / does what, His-Father: commands-of-Him!... Why?...

Answer: So, that the entire world,…may know / that: Jesus-Loves, His-Father!... Amen.

Love,

Izzy!....

THIS-PROCEEDS-FROM,…THE: (“FATHER”)!...

Friends!... I pray, that: “Together, we see the,…Light!”… Yes!...

Let’s review: (see: John chapter 15)… In its, entirety. Shall we?...

In verse, (1); Jesus, tells us that,…He / is: The-True-Vine!... **(For, there are many other / Christ’s: who are not, true)**

And, Jesus,…adds, that: “His-Father, is the,…Vinedresser!”… Amen.

Over-and-over, again-and-again,…in / love: I-shall-drive, this simple-truth,…home!... The-Father and His-Son, are,…(“Not”): two-in-the-same, entity.

Folks!... The-Father, (according-to-Jesus); is involved in, “all-things!”… Yes!... The-Father, takes-away and/or,…”prunes”: us!... (see: v-2)

Here, lies the purpose of our,…trials. Just like, fine-gold,…is-achieved / by-first; putting it through, a firing process. This smelting technique, causes all of its impurities,…to float / to-the-top: where it is then, skimmed-or-removed.

In the end, we achieve a purity rate,…of,…99.9% - Amen.

So, are we,…(“Jesus’-Faithful-Followers”); tested-by-in-and-thru, Life’s fiery-trials. To determine, whether ours,…is a mere,…”lip-service!”…

Or, whether we truly,…bear-good-fruit?...

Dear-friends!... It’s by the,…”fruit”, that we come to know,…who’s-who?…
That’s-right!... For, apart from,…The-Son / we-cannot-do: “anything!”… **(of any real, lasting value or worth)** (see: v-5)

There’s a promise, of,…”burning”; for those who, claim to be,…”In-Jesus!”… Yet, bear only,…”bad-fruit!”… (see: v-6)

Are, Jesus’-spoken-words,…”abiding” / in: you?... Oh’, how-I-pray,…so!...

Many, focus only on what,…the various, other / authors, of our Bible: are-quoting.

Yet,…”few” / truly-are-listening, to,…The-Son’s: spoken-words!... That’s-right!... And, so,…this causes / countless people, to stumble with: Christ-Jesus!... *( and / His-Simplicity )* Amen.

Note-well, that,…Jesus / always-speaks, about: Glorifying-His-Father!...

We, prove-our-discipleship,…by / bearing-much: “good-fruit!”… (see: v-8)

Note-especially, how,…Jesus, abides in: His-Father’s-Love!... It is, by keeping,…”His-Father’s-Commandments!”… Yes!... (see: v-10)

Are we,…”doers” / of: God’s-Word?... **( Like, The-Son: has-proven, to be)**

Or, is our,…”Mere-Lip-Service?”…

The-Son, considers us,…more-than: servants!... We, are,…”His-Friends!”… For, whom,…He / has-laid-down: His-own-Life!... Amen. (see: v-13)

Because, Jesus,…has-shared / “All”: that which, He,…has-heard, from: His-Father!... And, it’s because,…we today / know-these-truths, that: Jesus, calls us,…”His-Friends!”… Amen. (see: v-15)

By-contrast: Mere servants, don’t always know,…what / their – masters,…are: doing!...

We, are those,…who / know-that, Jesus,…reveals-openly,…whom: He-has-chosen!... (see: v-16)

Know-this-truth: The world, hates,…us!... Why?...

Answer: Because, we’ve been,…”chosen!”… Amen. (see: verses 18-19)

Friends!... The world’s hatred, toward us,…is / because; they do not know, Him,…(meaning: His-Father, Yahweh): Who, sent us,…Jesus!... (see: v-21)

Again, Jesus,…makes-a-clear / distinction: between Himself, and His-Father!... **(by-using-the-word: “also”)** (see: v-23)

It’s because, Jesus,…speaks / His-Father’s-Condemnations, that we today; have-no-excuse, for our sin!... (see: v-22)

All of it, boils-down-to,…(“Conviction-by-Christ”)!... By-in-and-thru, His-Father’s,…”spoken-words!”… Amen.

Count the times, Jesus,…says: “Me-and-My-Father!”… (see: v-24)

In-closing: Jesus, came to fulfill and not,…”Annul” / what-was-written, of: Him!... **(since-days-of-old)**

“Truth”,…causes-the-guilty / to hate: without a cause!... (see: v-25)

Note-well, the order of things!... Jesus, sends us,…(The-Helper, Another-Advocate: The-Holy-Spirit)!... Who, originates from,…His-Father!...

For,…”all-things” / proceed-from: The-Father!... Amen. (see: verses 26-27)

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

THIS-IS-THE,…FATHER’S: (“WORD”)!...

Friends!... It is, because we have loved,…Jesus / that-now,…in turn; His-Father, loves,…us!... Yes!...

There will be a day, when Jesus,…no-longer / needs-to-speak: “Figuratively!”… That’s-right!... In Jesus’ Name, we ask,…His-Father,…for: all-things!... Yes!...

But, (yet-future), there will be a day,…when / Jesus, no longer; will need to,...”Mediate”: for us.

In the, “Resurrection-Era”, we shall witness this truth: because we have always, “believed”, that our Jesus,…came-from: God!... Yes!... This specific – belief, in itself,…makes it possible / for us, to communicate; and to also, connect with our Creator!... *(Yahweh: His-Glorious-Name)*

That’s-right!... No more, “Intercessors-and-Mediators!”.. None, necessary!... Why?...

Answer: Because, we will have entered,…into / another: “dispensational-time and place!”… Where, we shall occupy,…”Incorruptible-Bodies!”… A transcending, spiritual existence,…of: life!... (please read: John 16: 23-28 )

Folks!... Jesus’-original-twelve, disciples,…knew that / He: came-from-God!... (see: v-30)

Yet, The-Religionist’s,…with their / worldly-leaders; these very same, would beg,…differently!... *( erroneously-calling-Jesus: God, Himself)*

Nowhere, does Jesus,…ever / claim-to-be: God, Himself!... No, sir!...

All-the-contrary, is most true!... That’s-right!... Amen.

Dear-reader!... The-Father, is,…”always” / with: Jesus!... (see: v-32) Never, does,…The-Son: feel, alone!...

We, (“Jesus’-Faithful-Followers”); never feel alone!... No, sir!... We know, that,…Father, Son / and: Holy-Spirit!... These, are always with us,…”always!”…

**(As-well: all-the-Angelic-Realm. Those Angels, powers-and-principalities, occupying high-heavenly-places: these all, represent, God’s-Light-and-Love. And, they desire most: much-good-will, unto mankind)**

Let’s move-on, to: (John chapter 17: read-the-entire, chapter)…

Jesus, has been given,…”Authority” / over: all-flesh!... Given,…”Authority” / but-by-whom?...

Answer: By-His-Father!... **( Yahweh )**

Jesus, offers,…”eternal-life” / to-all-whom, His-Father: has handed-over-to, Jesus!... Why?...

Answer: Because, God,…draws / whom, He: wishes!... Yes!... Towards, His-Son!... Much, the-same-way,…that / we; cannot come to God, but,…”by-in-and-thru: His-only-Begotten!”… **( our-dearest: Jesus)** (see: v-2)

Folks!... Tell-me: What, equates to,…”eternal-life?”…

Answer: That, we know this one,…very important / truth; that we come to know, the only true – God!... And, Jesus-the-Christ, whom,…God: has sent, to us!... (see: v-3) **( clearly-two-entities)**

This is such, a powerful chapter. Time and space, prohibits me,…from covering / the rest of this, chapter: today!...

In-closing: My emphasis, regarding,…Christ-Jesus / remains-the-same. He, Glorifies,…His-Father!... Having accomplished, the,…”work” / that,…God; gave our Jesus, to do!... Amen.

Friends!... Stay-firm and steadfast, don’t let anyone,…steal-your-crown / of: “Knowledge!”… Before our world, ever existed,…Jesus / was-with: His-Father!... (see: v-5)

Neither one them, are known as,…”Authors-of-Confusion!”… Clearly, Christ-Jesus,…serves-freely / and: willingly!... Jesus, works-with-those,…whom / His-Father, has given: to-the-Son!...

Let us, keep,…God’s-Word / true: and in its, proper-context,…”always!”… (see: v-6,7)

“Everything”,…which / The-Son,…owns-today; belonged,…”first”,…to: His-Father!... Today, The-Son,…is / Heir,…of, all which: His-Father, owns!... Amen.

P.S. We are, His!... Only, if we,…”keep” / (“HIS-FATHER’S-WORD”)!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

(“ONE”),…IN,…PURPOSE!...

Friends!... As we continue, our study of, (John 17: the-entire-chapter); be patient with me, as I may not finish it completely, within this written,…passage!...

I left – off, in my previous passage,…by saying: this truth!... (see: v-7)

“Everything, that Jesus owns,…is given / to – Him,…by: His-own-Father!... *(Yahweh: His-Infinite-Name)*

Folks!... Our-Apostle-John, demonstrate his own fondness,…for: Jesus!... How-so?...

Answer: By his exemplary ways, in remembering and quoting, what our dearest,…Jesus: said!... *(verbatim)*

John’s details, about Jesus’ own utterances,…much like / The-Apostle-Matthew: are truly, bar-none!... Amen.

Tell-me, dear reader!... Do you believe, Jesus?... Especially, when He states,…that,…His-Father’s-Words / are what,…He: speaks?... And, that,…He, (Jesus); was sent by, His-Father?... *(to-us: humanity)*

Because, believing in,…”The-Son’s-Message” / is-the-key; to being accepted, by,…His-Father!... That’s-right!... Amen. (see: v-8)

Note-well: I’ve mentioned this, “hard-truth”: in my past. Jesus, does,…(“Not”) / pray-for-the: entire world. No, sir!...

The-Son-of-God, prays for those,…whom / His-Father: has given, to,…Jesus!... Why?...

Answer: Let’s not, fool-ourselves. The world, rebukes our knowledge, our Faith, our understanding. We are that,…”remnant-class” / of: believers!...

It’s the,…”Household-of-Faith” / Gentile-or-Jew: which belongs to, our,…Creator!... Yes!... For, these very same,…our dearest / Jesus: prays the most. Amen. (see: v-9)

No,…”Salvation” / is-not-for: everyone!... **( Although, it’s offered to: whom-so-ever, wills)** Why?...

Answer: Because, although the world has heard,…our / message; they have chosen, (“Not”), to believe!...

And, without,…”Faith” / it-is-possible; to ever please, Almighty-God!...

In, (v-11): This remnant-class of believers, (“The-Elect”): these are kept-and safeguarded, in,…The-Father’s-Name!... Yes!...

Father-and-Son, ( in-that-respective: “order”)… These, are,…”One!”… Yes!... **(In-Love, In-Cause, In-Purpose)**

They, both desire most,…that / you-and-me; also become as,…(“One”): with them!... **( In-Unity, Mindset-and-Mission)**

The-World’s-Religionist, suppose that this,…”One-Ness” / must mean,…that; they are two, in-the-same,…”entity!”… **(wrong-assumption)**

In, (v-10); we see that,…”All-Things” / are-perfectly-shared, between: The-Father and His-Son!... **( To-include: The-Saved)**

Jesus-is-Glorified, in / us: because of our,…”Faith-in-Him!”… Yes!... Just, as,…The-Son / is-also, “Glorified”: in-the-Father!... Because of, Jesus’-exercised-Faith / in: His-Father!... Amen.

And, it’s because and a direct result,…of / our exercised,…Faith; that in the end, we are most compelled,…to / do: many-good-works!... Amen.

For, this act of doing,…”good-works” / reveals: Jesus-in-us!... Just, as our dearest,…Jesus / also-did: many-good-works!...

This, Truth,…also / “Glorifies-the-Father!”… Why?...

Answer: Because, ultimately,…”Obedience” / onto-those-appointed,…over us; this becomes, (“the-key”), to pleasing our living,…God!... *(Yahweh: His-Majestic-Name)*

For, among-many-things,…He / is-a-God, of much: “Law-n-Order!”…

Just, look around you. There exist, a place,…for / everything; as we find, everything-in-its,…proper: place!... **(positioned-perfectly: I-might-add)** The Celestial-Bodies, are,…one: fine-example.

The-Son, knows of His-Father!... And, now,…you / too!... God, willing. We’ll continue our study, further. At-a-later, time. We, will commence with,…(v-12)

Your Friend,

Izzy!...
