HELD-TOGETHER,…BUT-BY: (“WHOM”)?...

Friends!... I-truly-believe, that,…Death / is-another-transformation; into another way, of existing!... Yes!...

Our Bible, mentions that we,…shall-occupy / “incorruptible”: bodies!... No longer, liable-to-Death!... Nor, decay!... Amen.

Folks!... Everywhere, we look,…we / can-observe; the-perpetual-rhythm, of new-life!... Yes!... Followed by, Death!... Followed, by,…new-life!... *(again)*

So, we cannot believe,…that,…Death / is-the-final, end; of anything!... No, sir!...

To me, it’s rather a transformation,…and a continuation / of-the-flow, of,…existence!... *(in ways that, we don’t truly: understand)*

Take: “Jesus-of-Nazareth”,…for – example!...
By-the-way, He,…lived-and-died / by-what, He: believed!... He, led us to recognize,…and to / name-our-intimate, connectedness,…with; His-Heavenly-Father!... Yes!...

As we, (His-Faithful-Followers), walk trustingly in this,…life / with-Jesus; He shows us, how to face,…Death!...

With,…”Faith!”… For, His-Father’s-Love,…possesses / an-eternal-dimension.

Dear-reader!... The-human-spirit, has extra-ordinary,…depth / to it: yes!... Today, I-stand-touched,…by / The-Son’s, own tenderness; care-and-generosity!... Amen.

Almighty-God, is present,…to / us!... *(by-in-and-thru, the,…”expressed-imaged”: of,…His-Son)*!...

I-believe-that, the,…Earthen-Vessels / which-we-are; ultimately give our living God, a way of coming,…to: “expression!”… Yes!...

Today, I-pray-for,…all those / who-have-died; “into the reality”,…of, Who,…God: is!... *(All-powerful. All-knowing. Omni-present)* Amen.

I-believe-that, our,…”One-ness” / extends beyond: Death!... Yes!... I give thanks, for,…Jesus!... Who, allowed the,…”Presence” / of – His - Father; to move, so,…freely-and-generously / in: His-Life!...

By-in-and-thru, Jesus!... We can clearly, see,…a-true-picture / of-our: Creator!... *(Yahweh)*

“Temples”,…of / God’s-Spirit!... Earthen-Vessels, carrying bountiful treasures,…”expressed-in” / human: form!... Yes!...

That’s, who-we-are!... Amen. For, we-also-are,…made / in: God’s-own-Image!... Amen.

Jesus’-Message, dealt with seeking,…to make,…the / Kingdom-of-God: visible!... *(although, very much; a-lofty-concept, for,…the-general-masses)*

Tangible, mostly in a,…”spiritual-sense!”…

Friends!... The more, our,…Faith / is nurtured; the more enriched, our prayers,…become!... Insights-and-new, understanding,…are gained / from: “sharing”, these unspeakable riches!... *(of – God’s – Glory)*

This, is what,…Jesus / did: Yes!... (“SHARE”)!... God’s-Glory, with,…us!...

In-closing: “Let, God’s-people,…gather / together; aware of this, transitional,…point-in-time!... Where, we learn,…more-and-more / daily-about, Who,…holds; this-universe,…together!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

TO-YOU,…WHO: (“UNDERSTANDS”)!...

Friends!... Who-of-us, wants to accept the responsibility,…that / comes-with-accepting: Christ-Jesus?... *(into our personal lives)*

Folks!... The-Son-of-God, calls us to be,…”open” / to: Life-and-Love!... Yes!...

So, where’s our appreciation for being,…children / of: “His-Heavenly-Father?”… *(The-Most-High-God)* Yahweh, His-Glorious-Name!...

I today, “rejoice!”… Yes!... For this awareness, of ourselves!... *(as being: Jesus’-Faithful-Followers)*

I worship, a living-God,…Who / can do more, than; I could possibly, ask-or-imagine!... Extra-ordinary, things happen when,…we-raise-our / hearts-and-minds; in-prayer,…to,…His-Son!... Our, Lord-and-Saviour!... *(Jesus-of-Nazareth)*

Dear-reader!... In ways, we do not fully,…understand / all-of-reality; is connected to both, The-Father and His-Son!... Yes!...

“Ripples”,…are created / even-across, enormous: distances!... As we petition, our,…”Intercessor-and-Mediator!”… Yes!... *(Jesus)* Amen.

Friends!... Our prayers, are-uttered-in,…belief,…that / we-are, “bonded”: with the,…”Son-of-God!”… Yes!... With,…”Faith-and-Confidence” / we, do-and-say,…everything!... Amen.

This,…”Spirit-of-Truth” / moves-in-each,…of: us!... *(who-believe)*

May we, be,…”wise” / in-our: Sharing!... Ready-to-listen, to this,…”Spirit’s-Leading!”… Yes!... Open-to-learning, where,…new-spiritual-insights / and-knowledge: may take us!... Amen.

Today, we,…”draw-upon” / The-Son’s-Wisdom; which has stood, the test of,…”time!”… Let us, be,…”courageous-enough” / to discard, the many: “Doctrines-of-Devils!”… Why?...

Answer: Because, these-worldly-views,…no longer / sustain,…our: “Faith!”… Amen.

“Reconciliation”,…is about / “mending”: yes!... The-eternal-bond, once held by,…mankind!... Something, which,…”Sin” / has broken,…and: disrupted!... Yes!...

Today, I-acknowledge-the,…hurt-and-pain / that comes; when we act, as though we’re,…disconnected-and-distanced!... *(all the while, knowing better: as believers, that we are)*

Listen to,…The-Son!... As, He,…”professes” / His-Readiness,…to: “Heal-and-Mend”,…all that stands: “Broken!”… *(in-our-personal: lives)*

We-are-privileged, for this,…understanding!... Yes!...

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

(“PRAY”),…WITH,…ME!…

Jesus,…”May, Your-Father’s-Love,…and / Grace; be clearly evident, in our words and deeds,…daily!... Help us, Son-of-God!... Even, when we can’t see,…what / You’re-Doing!”… Amen.

I’m personally, thankful that we,…(who-believe) / can-rest-in, Jesus’ own; “Goodness-and-Faithfulness!”… Yes!... Today, tomorrow-and-forever,…more!...

Father-in-Heaven!... “We, need,…You / right-now!... Help us, to trust,…You / to come through; for us, (Your-Son’s-Followers). Be there, for us,…in our / most-difficult: situations!”… Amen.

Son-of-God!... “We need, Your-Wisdom,…to-build-a / lasting-legacy, for: Your-Father’s-Glory!”… Amen.

Friends!... Our-Holy-Scriptures, reveal a living-God,…Who / rescues!... Often, precisely when all,…seems / lost; He assists those, of us who are destined,…for: much-ruin!... Yes!...

By-in-and-thru, His-Son!... God, arrives to,…”Save” / us!... *(His-Chosen-Remnant)* Amen.

Despite, it-all. I-see-us,…in / ”good-endings!”… Yes!...

Folks!... Our-Bible, mentions that we should,…”press-on” / toward: spiritual-maturity!... Let’s stop being,…”Babes-in-Christ!”…

Let us, become,…”mature” / attaining-to-the, whole measure; of the fullness,…of,…Christ-Jesus!... Yes!... (see: Ephesians 4: 13)

While, we’re young,…in-our / Faith; we’re vulnerable to every,…”Wind-of-Doctrine!”… (see: verse-14)

This, in-itself,…results / in-divisions-among: us!... *(the-very: Body-of-Christ)* Yes!...

Let us, instead,…function / as-a-unified: “Body!”… As we mature, in our,…”spiritual-understanding!”…

Him, (Jesus); Who, is-our-Head!... He,…”Matured!”… Also, becoming the,…”Fullness-of-His-God!”… *(our-God!... His-Father!... Our – Father!...)*

Compared, to,…”His-Holy-Standards” / even, our-own-righteous,…(“acts”): are seen as,…”Filthy-Rags!”… (see: Isaiah 64:6)

But, Almighty-God,…(Yahweh): He sees, something else. Yes!... Something, even-more-true. He, sees,…His-Son / our-dearest: Jesus!... That’s-right!...

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

SALVATION-IS-AT,…(“HAND”)!...

Friends!... Our-Apostle-Peter, acknowledged many wonders. Yes!... Among them, was one,…Truth!... He, had seen,…our / Jesus!... *(with-his-own: eyes)*

But, those who would read,…his / letter: had-not!...

“Though, you have not seen,…Him / (meaning – Jesus); you – believe!... And, are filled with an,…inexpressible-and-glorious / “Joy!”… ( read: 1st Peter 1:8 )

Folks!... We, Love,…Jesus!... But, not because we’re commanded,…to. But, rather,…because / with the help, of,…The-Holy-Spirit, (see – verse: 11); we begin to see, how much,…Jesus / Loves: us!... Amen.

It’s more than, hearing that,…He / cares-for-people; like us. It’s experiencing for ourselves,…”The-Promise!”…

That, of making His,…unseen-presence / real-to-us; at every stage, of our lives!...

Father-in-Heaven!... “Help us, to see the miracle,…of / Your-Love, and of; Your-Presence, in the person,…of: Jesus!... And, to believe in,…*(the-other: Advocate)*… Yes!... The-Holy-Spirit!”… Amen.

Dear-reader!... Nothing-is-sweeter, in this,…sad-world / than-the-sound,…of; someone you love, calling your own,…name!...

In-this-world, where we can feel,…unseen / unappreciated; and even,…unknown!... Be assured, that,…Almighty-God / knows, each-of-us: by our own, name!... Yes!...

“You are precious, and honored,…in / My-Sight!”… *(read: Isaiah 43: 4) Why?...

Answer: Because, in,…”Love” / His-Son, ransomed: His-own-Life!... For, you-and-me. Yes!... In,…Love!... For, it’s,…The-Father’s-Love / what-our,…Jesus: really lives, for!... It’s all, which we also,…really / need!... Amen.

We, today,…belong / to-both: “The-Father and His-Son!”…

Jesus!... “When, I stray from,…Your-Arms / and: Your-Fellowship!... Summon, me,…home / by: Name!... For,…I’m-so-grateful / to-be: Yours!”… Amen.

Friends!... I’ve-been-committed, to many things,…over-the-course / of: my-personal-life!... But, one that has been,…”constant” / is-my-desire; to see the unbeliever, the undecided and even,…the / back-slider; introduced-and-reintroduced, to our dearest,…Jesus!... Yes!...

Folks!... It’s not a, “slight-thing”,…when / we; who are older, do all we can,…to / make sure, “others”; are never hindered, from the ever-fresh,…Love / of: Jesus!... Yes!...

Dear-Jesus!... “ Help us, to reveal,…Your-Love / The-Father’s-Love, and; His-Presence!... Yes!... To-all-peoples. Make us, mindful of ways,…to / ensure-that; they can always, come to,…You!”… Amen.

Dear-reader!... Although, we may recognize that,…we / possess; many talents and skills. We, still need,…God’s-Wisdom / His-Strength; and His-Help!... That’s-right!... *(to-guide-our: hands-hearts-and-minds)*

*(Yahweh)*… He, alone is,…God!... Yes!... He, alone is,…well-able-to / do; immeasurably-more, than all we ask,…or / imagine!...

I-pray-that: “ You, dear-reader!... Maintain, a-humble-heart. To learn, from,…The-Holy-Spirit’s / nudges; and to fully trust,…Jesus: God’s-own-Son!”… Amen.

All-three, can do more,…than / we: ever-could!... We need, their independent,…wisdom / their-uniqueness; their powers. For our own, decision-making,…for / our; skill developing. For our, working relationships with,…others!...

*(throughout-our-entire: lives)*… Amen.

P.S. Father, Son and Holy-Spirit!... Each, has a specific-role,…a / purpose: uniquely-proper, separate from one another. Yet, although they are independent,…entities / they-are-as: One!... Yes!... Mostly, in wanting,…humanity / to-come-to; an earnest position, of true,…”Repentance!”… And, to finally receive,…God’s-Free: Gift!... *(Salvation: is-at-hand)*


Your Friend,

Izzy!...

THIS-IS-HE,…WHO: (“PROVIDES”)!...

Friends!... In, (Matthew – chapter: 10); our Jesus, describes,…His-Father’s-Care / for: sparrows!... In order to comfort, the disciples,…as / Jesus-warns,…of: upcoming dangers!...

Jesus, offers instructions to the,…”Twelve” / as-He, gave them: “Authority!”… Yes!... *(the same, “Authority” / which-was, passed-down,…from: The-Father,…to,…His-Son)*

Folks!... We can clearly see, here,…that / now: The-Son, transfers this,…”Power”,…to: His-Disciples!... Divine-Strength, From,…Father-to-Son / and-then,…from; The-Son, to whom,…He: so-ever-wills!... Amen.

And, with this,…”Power” / The-Disciples,…can; drive-out, demons. Unclean-Spirits!... And, heal every type of disease-and-affliction!... *(or-sickness)*… (read: Matthew – chapter: 10:1)

While, these powers to do much,…”good-deeds” / might-have-seemed,…grand; to the disciples. Many, would oppose,…them!... Yes!...

Including, governing-bodies. Their own, family members. And, the-ever-ensnaring,…grip / of: “The-Evil-One!”… (read: verses – 16-28)

Then, in,…(Matthew 10: 29-31); Jesus told them, not-to-fear,…whatever / they-would: face!... Because, they would never be,…out - of / “The-Father’s-Care!”…

I-ask-you, dear-reader!... Why, would our dearest,…Jesus / always-talk-about: His-Father!... As though, He,…(God): was another, person?...

Answer: Because, God,…is / another: person!... Independent-and-separate, from,…His-Son!... Amen. Yet, the very,…”Simplicity-of-Christ” / and – of: His-Teachings!... This, is what the,…general-masses / misinterpret: the most!... Amen.

Dear-Father!... “Thank-You. For always, watching over and for caring,…for: us!”... *(Your-Son’s-Followers)*… Amen.

Folks!... I-pray-that: “Our-Holy-Scriptures, become personal to,…you!... Yes!... For, if we hold to,…the / Teachings-of-Christ; you are really,…His-Disciples!”… Amen.

Only, then,…will-you-know / the: “Truth!”… And, the,…”Truth” / will-set-you: Free!... (read: John 8: 31-32)

Help-us, Dear-Jesus!... “To connect with,…Your-Father / more-and-more; by-in-and-thru, the very wisdom,…of: Your-Spoken-Words!”… Amen.

Dear-reader!... Seemingly, there lies many,…insurmountable / disadvantages; because of our disconnect, from,…worldly-affairs!... Yes!...

The story of,…”Gideon” / and-the, “Midianites”; features a similar, upset. One, between a small group,…of / fighters; and a large, army!...

The-Israelite-Army, itself,…actually / had-more-than, 30,000: “fighters!”… *(32,000 – to – be: exact)*

But, Almighty-God, *(Yahweh)*,…whittled this / Army; down to just, (300): “warriors!”… Why?...

Answer: So, the nation of,…Israel / would learn,…that; their success was, “dependent-upon”: God,…alone!... Amen. *(as-is-ours: who-believe)*

And, not on the size,…of / their-own: Army!... Not, on the amount,…of / money: in-their-treasury!... Nor, on the skill,…of / their: “leaders!”… (read: Judges 7: 1-8)

Friends!... It-can-be,…quite / “Tempting”; to put our trust, in things we can,…see / and-or: measure!... Yes!... *(as-well: our total, confidence)*

But, that’s-not-the,…(“Way-of-Faith”)!... Though, it’s-often-difficult… When / we’re-willing-to; depend on,…God!... We can, thereafter enter into,…situations / with-much: “courage-and-confidence!”… Yes!...

Even, when we feel,…”over-whelmed!”… And, unqualified!...

Folks!... His-Presence-and-Power,…can do / amazing-things; by-in-and-thru,…us!... *(who-believe)* Amen.

God-in-Heaven!... “When, life,…gets / challenging; help us, learn to rely-on,…Your-Mighty-Strength!... And, on,…Your-Endless-Grace!”… Amen. *(read: Ephesians 6: 10)

Today, I-know-that,…whether / in: victory-or-defeat!... You, our,…living-God / will: “continue-to-provide!”… Yes!...

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

HELP-US,…WITH-OUR,…(“UNBELIEF”)!...

Folks!... Our Jesus, lived a life on this,…Earth!... He, ate. He, drank and He,…walked-down / the streets. Tell me, (dear-reader); do you know, Him?...

Or, is He,…just-a-historical / figure: to you?... It’s crucial, that we move beyond,…the façade / of-the-story, of this: “Jesus-The-Christ!”…

Who of us, will dare to delve-deep,…into / His-Life?... And, into His,…teachings?...

We, (His-Faithful-Followers), must allow,…His-Spirit / to flood, the thoughts; the words and the actions, of our daily,…lives!... Yes!...

I-pray-that: “You, come to know, (The-Gospels): intimately!”… Amen.

Friends!... The teachings of Jesus, were very much,…a radical way / two-thousand-years: ago. And, they are just as radical,…today. If you doubt, that: then consider, reading this…(please-read: Matthew 5:44)

“Love your enemies. And, pray for those who,…persecute / you!”…

Dear-reader!... Before this, what had been the teaching?...

Answer: An,…”Eye” / for an: “Eye!”… Tooth, for a Tooth!... (read, Exodus 21:24)

It’s easy to read this passage, and accept it intellectually. But, living it, requires a constant,…”vigilance!”… Amen…(please-read: Matthew 5:44) Again.

Folks!... The real challenge, is to get involved. Our Bible, reminds us of our own,…struggles!... Yes!... Most of us, draw near to this,…”Son-of-God!”… Only, to later abandon,…His-Ways!,…`

Then, from the anguish of our,…brokenness / and-the-emptiness; of our sins, we once again, draw near to,…Jesus!... Returning, to,…His-Ways!...

There is perhaps, no better example, than,…Peter: one of the first, to be gathered into,…Jesus’ / inner-circle.

Peter, leaves everything behind. To follow, Jesus!... Later, he turns his back,…on / Jesus!... Denying, Jesus,…even / knows: him.

But, after,…”Jesus’-Resurrection” / Peter, becomes; the unifying-force, for the early,…Church!... Yes!... (and its many-membered: Body-of-Christ)… Amen.

Tell me, dear-reader: “What stories, are you allowing to direct,…your own / Life?”...

Friends!... Humanity’s greatest foolishness, is the discredited-fantasy,…that / we can find; a lasting joy, separate from the,…”Will-of-God!”…
How many of us, know that,…”uncertainty” / is-truly-a; spiritual gift?... Yes!... Divinely-Designed, to help us,…to: (“grow”)!... Yes!...

Live your questions, now!... Perhaps, you will then gradually, (without-noticing-it); begin to live, into the,…”answers!”…

God’s questions, to us,…causes us / to realize; where we are. And, where we should,…or / need-to-be!... Open your spiritual eyes.

In closing: (“Please Lord. Won’t You, help us all,…with our, brief-moments / of: unbelief”)?... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“CELEBRATE,…YOUR,…PROGRESS!”…

Who of you, will allow our,…living / God; to transform you?... There’s much work, to be done in changing from,…who / we are; to who, we are capable,…of: being!... Yes!...

I want others, to experience the joy,…that / our: Christian-Faith, brings. I haven’t forgotten, how resistant to God,…I’ve-been / at different times; in my personal life.

Folks!... Almighty-God, (Yahweh-His-Name); He’s not some distant, Force. But, rather,…a personal friend. He, simply desires most,…that we, (His-Son’s-Followers); abide by a structure.

I see myself, as a student of,…Jesus!... And, of His-Church!...(the many-membered / Body-of-Christ)…

Pro-actively, making a daily effort to allow,…His-Teachings / to “form”: me!... It’s, Christ’s own simplicity,…that allows / wide-spread: “adoption-and-participation!”…

Friends!... As human-beings, we have a great psychological need,…to know / we are making: “progress!”...

And, so,…finding ways / to measure, progress; is critical, even in an area,…like,…”spirituality!”…(which is so, difficult: to actually measure).

Wherever you are, in the journey,…you may be / thinking-that; you just don’t have, the time for anything,…else.

Dear-reader!... The principle,…of,…(“continuous-improvement”); is about to become, your new,…”Best-Friend!”… Yes!...

Making, small daily investments,…usually / leads, to: “Large-Returns!”…

Any suggestion of a, “single-large-change” / to a person’s, life; tends to be met, with massive-levels,…of: fear, anxiety-and-resistance!...

The most, viable solution is small,…but / consistent-steps: always in a positive, direction.

“Change”,…in-its-smallest / least-threatening-form; is usually, the most,…”successful”…

Become,…”Heroically-Patient” / with: yourself!... Yes!...

For, God,…wants-to-transform / you: and the way, in which you live,…your life. Amen.

Every day, God,…invites / me, to take; “one-small-step”, toward,…Him!... I-often-resist. Other days, I-am-so,…”enthusiastic-and-excited”: that I want, to run toward,…Him!...

With,…”reckless-abandonment!”…

And, don’t we all,…just want to / make-up, for so many: “Lost-Days?”… Amen.

But, God,…(by-in-and-thru: His-Son); taps me, on the shoulder,…and / says: “Slow-Down!”… Enjoy-the-journey. All I ask, (God, speaking: here), is for one,…small-step: each and every, day.

If, at any point,…you feel / over-whelmed. Well, then. You’ve misunderstood, “The-Son’s-Message!”…

For, most of us,…there’s no such thing / as overnight: “Success!”… No, sir!...

Life, for me,…unfolds / little-by-little; in many incremental, (“Steps”)!... Yes!... It’s time, we applied the wisdom of,…”continuous-improvement”: right, where you are.

Stand, where you are. Call out, to your Creator!... And,…(“CELEBRATE-YOUR-PROGRESS”)!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“DREAM,…SOME,…DREAMS!”…

Who-of-you, will allow our,…Jesus / to-increase-in: you?...

This is my invitation, to ponder the,…”Christ!”… And, His,…teachings. Yes!... Let us, (His-Faithful-Followers); affix our singleness-of-purpose, on doing the,…”Will-of-God!”… (our-Father / in: Heaven).

Direct your thoughts, toward these higher-things. Stop your wandering, hearts-and-minds. Both, The-Father and His-Son,…Love / us: as-we-are. But, this,…”Love” / won’t allow you, to; stay-as-you-are. No, sir!... (expect-a-change).

Seek,…”silence-and-solitude” / because; it’s at this, time-and-place,…that we / find the: “Voice-of-God!”… Yes!... More-than-ever, expect the,…”Son-of-God” / to change, your present; stance-and-stature.

God, (by-in-and-thru / His: Son); is still, bestowing,…His-Wisdom!... And, it’s in this,…”silence” / that: God, speaks!... Amen. Things, start-to-make,…sense / therein; this mentioned, silence. Tell me, (dear-reader), can you hear the,…”Voice-of-God?”…

Amidst, all-the-noise,…present / in our: world?... Oh’, how-I-pray,…so!... Amen.

Because, of this background noise,…often-times / we can’t even; hear-ourselves, think. That’s-right!... How, can we therefore,…”work-out” / who-we-are; while in the middle, of all this,…noise?... (Impossible).

Who-are-you?... And, why,…are / you: here?... When, was the last time,…you / prayed: these words?...

“God, what do,…You / think: I-should-really, do?”…

Speak,…”Son-of-God!”… I-your-brother, and fellow,…servant / is truly: listening. Yes!...

Dear-reader, when was the,…last-time / you invited, both; The-Father and His-Son, into the decisions,…of / your: personal-lives?... Are you, one of those,…who / foolishly-believes, that; you know, a true-short-cut,…to your / own: happiness?...

Friends!... Our-own-age, or,…”era” / desperately-needs; its own, spiritual-giants. Yes!... Where, is our sense,…of / mission?... Or, are you one,…who / leads-a-life, of: “quiet-desperation?”…

“Vocation”,…is about finding / what you are; best-suited-for?...

Folks!... If you want, to be happy,…for / a-decade; find a way, to make a difference,…in / other-people’s: lives!... But, if you want to be,…happy / for-a-lifetime, and; beyond. Then, seek,…whole-heartedly / the: “Will-of-God!”… Amen.

Seek it, one day at a time. One moment, at-a-time. One,…”decision” / at-a-time!... All the possessions, in the world,…cannot / “sustain”: our-real-joy!... No, sir!...

Tell me: “What lies, within-the-depths,…of / your-own: hearts-and-minds?... God, is our friend. He, will take-care of the,…details / just-trust: first-and-foremost. This, must come from you. Yes!... He’ll do, His,…part. (If-only-you / do: yours)… Amen.

Trust, must be exercised, by every,…believer / before we can; expect anything else, in our lives,…to: fall-into-place. Henceforth, I challenge each of you,…today; to make, “daily-prayer”, a priority in your,…personal-lives!...

And, make it an,…”indispensable-part” / of your: daily-schedules. Spend, ten-minutes,…per / day: sit, with God!... And,…(“DREAM,…SOME,…DREAMS”)!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

No, lustful-person,…who / is-really,…an - idolater; has any, true-inheritance,…inside / this – mentioned: “Kingdom-of-God!”…

Easily-confused,…and,…led-astray,…are the / “religious-masses!”…

By, definition: A deceived, person,…is one / that: doesn’t realize, the snares,…in which / they, have: fallen!... Led, there,…by / many: lies-and-deceptions!... Amen. The, very-work-of,…The-Devil / himself!... Amen.

We, can-only-pray,…that / the: Holy-Spirit!... Overshadow, their,…entire / household. Bringing,…”spiritual-light” / into, their existing: darken-views!...

Friends. Worthless-arguments, are the,…(“sins”) / that-bring, down: God’s-Wrath!... Upon, the ones,…He / calls: “Disobedient!”… Yes!...

So, have,…”nothing-to-do” / with: them. It’s, true,…that / we: were once,…”darkness!”…

But, now,…we / are: “The-Light!”… Yes!... Onto,…this / hurting-and-lost: World!...

“KNOW,…THESE,…TRUTHS!”…

Friends. We will attempt, to finish,…our study / of, Chapter (7): in this,…”Book-of-Acts!”…

*(Please-read, Acts 7:44)*…

This,…(“Tent-of-Witness”) / was-where: Moses, met with a,…”Pillar-of-Cloud!”… It, descended,…to the / front-entrance: of this, specifically-erected-tent,…outside the regular / camp, of: Israel…

This, took place,…during those / forty-(40)-years: while they, (“wandered”),…about / in-the-wilderness!...

This,…”Tent-of-Meeting” / is where: (“instructions”), were received,…by our,…Moses!... A,…(”Face-to-Face”) / encounter: sort-to-speak,…”figuratively-speaking!”…

Moses, never actually,…(”saw”) / God’s-Face!... No, sir!... For, no man can really,…”see” / God: and live, to tell,…about / it!... This is, most,…Biblically / True!... Amen.

(“God’s-Presence”),…would speak / to: Moses!... This,…”Tent” / was-constructed: according to the,…”pattern” / which, Moses: was shown!...

Note-well, it was,…Moses / who, entered; this mentioned,…”Tent!”…

A very-special, and most personal,…(”Fellowship”) / occurred-here: at this, location. Yes!... An, intimacy-existed,…between / God; and our, Moses!...

But, don’t ever,…forget-that,…our / Moses: never-really,…”saw” / God’s-Face!... *(ever / while-in-the: flesh)*… Why?...

Answer: Because, no,…”man-or-woman” / can see, God!... *(it’s not / permitted)*…

*(Please-read, Exodus 33: in-its-entirety)*… And, especially,…verses: 14-23…

Note-well, how,…Almighty-God / Yahweh: His-Glorious-Name!... Yes!... He, uses,…Angels!... Many, times. To go, before,…His / chosen-people. And, to do,…(”battle”) / with: The-Enemy!...

Ultimately,...”dispossessing” / or: “driving-out!”… *(Read, Exodus 33: 2)*…

Yes!... God,…(”drives-out”) / those-who: rebuke, His-Ways!... And, who,…only-focus / on being: “stiff-necked!”... Practicing, always,…pagan-rituals!... Offending, our,…living-God / in-the-end!... Amen.

Getting-back, to the,…”Tent” / of: Meeting-or-Witnessing!...

It was,…”pitched” / outside-the-camp: Yes!... Far-off, from the regular,…encampment / of-the: “Israelite-People!”…

When, Moses,…visited /this-special-tent: the rest of the, Israelites,…would stand / immediately-outside: their own, regular-tents… Witnessing, their,…Moses / entering: thereafter, this,…”Pillar-of-Cloud” / would-descend, from: Heaven, itself!...

But, note-well,…this / “Cloud”, would: stay-outside, and remain at the entrance,…of the / “Tent!”… Moses, was the one,…who-would / enter!...

While,…(“GOD’S-PRESENCE”) / remained, outside: at-the-entrance!... Amen.

Yes!... God, would speak to our,…Moses / as-any-man: would speak, to,…his-or-her / friend. But, folks!... This, too,…is / “figurative-language!”… *(not-literally / at-all)*…

Let’s finally, learn to,…”spiritually-discern!”… *(Yes!... All-things)*… Amen.

*(Go-Back, and read-well: Exodus 33: 7-11)*…

Dear-reader and friends. God,…speaks-to-Moses / “face-to-face!”… This,…(”figurative-language”) / holds-a-deeper: “spiritual-meaning!”… Yes, sir!...

(“Intimacy”),…is what / we-are-to, actually: “extract-from-this, experience!”…

“God’s-Voice”,…Moses / (“heard”), from-this: “Pillar-of-Cloud!”… Yes!...

Emanating, from, within this cloud,…and / with-much: “endearment!”…

Many, instructions,…on several / occasions: were given, to,…Moses!... *(in-this-fashion)*… While, they,…(”wandered-about”) / in-the-wilderness: during those, arduous,…forty-40-years!... Amen.

Yet, our,…”worldly-churches” / have-taken-this: completely, out-of-context!... Yes!... Twisted-and-Perverted, remain,…the-real-truths!...

Just, remember this. No one, while still occupying,…fleshly-bodies / can-see: God!... And, still,…live / to: tell-about-it!... *(This, is a,…Biblical-Fact)*… Amen. Why?...

Answer: Because, God’s-own-Holiness, prohibits,…”anything-or-anyone” / less-than-Holy: to otherwise,…(”defile”) / God’s-own: existence!...

Yet,…the world’s / “Religionist”: would have you, believe,…otherwise!... Yes!... Completely,…”duped-and-stupefied” / remain-the-masses!...

The,…”religious-world” / believes-that: Jesus-is-God!... *(incarnate)*…

No, sir!... Hog-Wash!... Nowhere, in our,…Holy-Scriptures / does-this-lie: exist!...

Returning, to the,…”Book-of-Acts” / note-well, how: “Finding-Favor”,…with, God!... *(springs-forth / once-again)*…

Folks!... It means, the whole difference,…between / “success-and/or-failure!”… *(in-all-things)*…

*(read, Acts 7: 44-60)*…

Friends. God, doesn’t,…live / inside, any: “man-made-structure!”… *(read, verse: 48)*…

Many, for,…”centuries-on-end” / were-actually: “Killed!”… Yes!... For, simply…”announcing” / the-coming, of: “The-Righteous-One!”… Jesus!... The,…”Son-of-God!”… *(read, verse: 52)*…

Note-well, how,…”laws-from / God”,…are-received: by-the-hand, of,…(“Angels”)!... The-Ten-Commandments, a great,…example-of-this!... *(read, verse: 53)*…

Yes!... Angels,…”deliver” / God’s-Message!... *(to-the-whole / of: humanity)*… Amen.

They, are-our,…”Mediators!”… God, doesn’t,…(“deal-with”) / humanity: directly!... Why?...

Answer: Because, we presently,…remain / in-a-fallen: and putrid, state-of-existence!... Yes!... That’s-right!... Our, present-stance,…is one / of: defiance-towards-God!...

And, God,…considers / mankind’s-disobedience: a complete,…(“Abomination”)!...

At, our,…own / (“Resurrection”): we shall, occupy,…”incorruptible-and-glorified”: bodies!... Yes!... Our, new-existence,…shall be / one-that: will resemble, our,…Lord’s!... That’s-right!...

Only, then,…*(after-our / Resurrection)*… Shall we, also,…stand-in-the / “Spirit!”… Yes!... As, our,…Jesus / stands-today: in-the-Spirit!... Amen.

This,…man-called / (“Stephen”): mentioned in this, chapter (7): was one, who was full,…of-the / Holy-Spirit!...

And, as he,…”gazed-into-Heaven” / he-saw: “God’s-Glory!”… Much, like our,…Jesus / also-saw: God’s-Glory!... On those, last moments,…in that, night: on that / “Mount-of-Olives!”… *(prior, to Jesus’ / arrest)*…

What, did this,…(“Stephen”) / see?...

Answer: He, saw,…Jesus / a-separate-entity: (“standing”),…at-the-right / hand, of: God!... *(read, verses: 55-56)*…

Yes!... (“Twice-mentioned”), in our,…Bible / for: “emphasis-sake!”… Amen.

Saul, whose name,…later, was changed / to: Paul… He, was present,…at / (“Stephen’s-Stoning”)!... This,…Saul / “persecuted”: all-believers, at that,…time. Although, this,…Saul / was-a: Pharisee!... *(read, verse: 58)*…

Yes!... A, well-learned-man,…in / Moses’-Law!... He, didn’t quite understand,…this / undertaking: occurring, under his,…very / nose!...

Saul, believed,…like, every one / else: that-this, was just,…another / sect: rising-to-taint, their existing,…”Faith!”…

And, so,…”The-Religious-Order” / of-that-Day: were those, most,…”threatened!”… *(by-what / was-happening)*…

Much,…”Healing” / and: dispossessing, of demons!... Something, that,…these / “Religionist”: could-not-achieve, themselves!... An, unknown,…(“Power”)!... *(was-rising / to be: recognized)*…

Praise-God!... For, these marvelous-truths!... Amen.

Friends, as we come,…to-a-close / in-this: chapter, (7)… Please, note-well,…the following:

(“Stephen”),…pleads-for-forgiveness!... Not, for,…himself / but-for: those very same, who,…are / “executing-him!”…

Here, we find,…”a-type” / of: Jesus’-own-pleas!... *(also, onto / His-Father: as Jesus, was nailed / to-that: Roman-Stake)*…

REMEMBER?... “Forgive them,…Father!... For, they know,…(Not) / what-they: do!”… Amen.

And, finally,…(“Stephen’s-Words”) / are-those-of: “freely-rendering-up”,…his-own / “Spirit!”…

Again, just like,…our / Jesus: it is, the,…(“Spirit”)!... *(which returns / to: The-Father!... Yes!... From, whence,…we-all / came)*…

Whereas, the,…(“Soul”) / by-contrast: represents, the,…(“life-giving-power / or: Breath-of-Life”): which, we all,…”receive” / upon-entering: this-fleshly-realm!...

Folks!... The-Spirit,…is-actually / “The-Intellect”: of each, individual… Yes!... We are all,…Spirits / presently-occupying: fleshly-bodies!... Your memories, your personality, your physical-characteristics,…everything-about / you: which describes, your person!... *(This – is / The-Spirit: of any, given individual)*… Amen.

The-Soul,…simply / is: the-power-source, given onto us,…upon / entering: this-physical-world!...

God,…(“Blew”) / into: Adams’-nostril. And, Adam,…became / a: “living-Soul”… But, upon,…Adam’s-Death!... His,…(“Spirit”) / returned: to the,…Father!... From, whence,…Adam / originally: came!...

“For, to be,…(absent) / from-the-body: is to be, (present),…with / God!”… Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“ARE-YOUR-EYES,…ON,…JESUS?”…

Friends, in laboring-and-birthing,…this project; of sharing, my-own-perspective,…with regard, to: God’s-Word!...

I would like, to take this moment,…to, acknowledge you: my-reading-audience!...

Yes, we are,…”Free-at-Last!”…

Ours,…(“Jesus’-Faithful-Followers”), has been a process,…of opening: our-own-spirit. And, of answering,…this, call.

Yes, you,…have made, my journey; as-a-writer, by hobby. Truly, an enjoyable-and-spiritual,…experience.

Your support, has kept me,…”encouraged”,…all-throughout; these-many-years. Never, have you doubted,…that, we shall; indeed see-again, the very,…Son-of-God!...

Yes, in all,…of,…His-own-Splendor!... And, with His-Father’s-Glory,…in,…Hand!...

Thank-you, for,…(“stepping-out”),…in this, exercised-faith; as we, have walked alongside,…The-Father: His-Son and the Holy-Angels, of Heaven!...

Yes, we have,…(“partnered”),…and have made, this pilgrimage; most-worthwhile. No, we haven’t figured,…all-things, out.

Not, just yet,…because, we’re still; working-our-dreams,…and,…carrying-our-careers,…covering, this-field: we call, Life!...

The ideas, of our present-world,…no-longer, feed; what used-to-be, our,…misery!... We’ve learned, to put-aside,…that, mind; which functioned, more like,…”ravenous-dogs”: and have exchanged them, for minds of,…innocent-children!...

There’s, no-more,…hatred. No-more, resentments. No-more, wanting to control,…everything-and-everybody!....

No, sir!... Nobody, in their-own-midst,…can, in-any-way; hurt us, (who-truly-believe)!...

For, today,…we, realize that; the chosen-and-destined, don’t experience,…(“strings”),…of: bad-luck!...

You, (dear-reader and friends), have been that,…”powerful-team”; who, is my truest-source,…of: inner-strength!...

*(save / Jesus-the-Christ: Himself)*

Yes, we are those,…who-know,…what’s-going-on. Our, personal-lives,…aren’t, falling-to-pieces.

We, do,…what,…”Mindful,…People”,…do!...

We offer, (“others”),…suggestions, that,…do-more-than; just-merely-sound,…(“good”)!...

Confusion, does-not-reign,…”Supreme”,…with those, who,…have-listened; to what we,…have-had: to share.

Insanity, is not,…in-the-cards; for us!...

More importantly, we recognize more than,…ever; this-one-truth…

That,…beneath,…(“All,…The,…Bravado”),…lies, a-real-need; for inward-growth,…and,…spiritual-wisdom!...

Yes, a true-need,…for us, to change: both, our,…”hearts-and-minds!”...

As well, our-own,…”Mindset-and-Mission!”…

Today, everything makes,…”Perfect,…Sense!”…

We, are on a trip,…which, requires,…much-boldness; of heart. Yes, strength-of-mind. And,…Power,…of-the-Spirit!...

There’s something, bigger than,…ourselves,…out-there; and we’ve made it, part of our,…personal-lives: within!...

Yes,…(“indwelling”),…as-it, should be!...

Not, everything,…is,…as it: should be. That’s why, you’re here,…with, me. To make-a-difference. To change, what’s-wrong. And, to do,…what-is-right!...

Folks, if you know,…(“Who”),…walks-besides-you, (meaning, Jesus); you will, never-again,…be,…Afraid!... Amen.

I-for-one, have come,…to-the,…realization, that; His-Father’s-Grace, is what continues,…to sustain: me. Yes, in,…all-things!...

For, in the end,…we are those, who-walk; most convinced, that,…because-of-Christ’s / accomplished-deeds; we shall, in turn,…see: our,…(“eternal-tomorrows”)!...

And, each-day,…that passes,…because, of this awareness; drudgery, has become,…quite: Dead!...

Good-Deeds and much servitude,…unto-others: is our, new-order,…each-day!... Amen.

So, in closing: Take-Heed!... Our,…Redeemer,…draws-ever-nearer; with each-breath, we take-in.

Don’t cloud-your-minds,…with-these,…”Perceived,…Oppressors!”…

Who, only desire to,…”steal-away”,…your-own,…”Crown-of-Righteousness!”…

I pray, that: “You come, to,…rest-your-spirit,…with-these-truths!”… Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“WE-ARE,…AS / ONE!”…


Friends. Please-read,…*(John 14: 10 – 11 )*…

Spiritual-connotations, are indeed,…discerned-well / only-by: true-believers!... Amen.

“Believe,…Me, (Jesus-speaking) / that, (I-Am): in the,…Father. And,…The-Father / is-in: Me!... Or, else,…believe / on-account-of: the,…(works),…themselves!”…

Jesus, repeats this,…concept / of: “Indwelling!”…

We,…(“Jesus’-Faithful-Followers”); accept this, concept of,…(“The-Spirit / Indwelling”)!...

And, that-there’s-truly,…an-existing / chain-of-command: within this,…”Spiritual-Realm!”…

The-Father,…(“Indwells”),…with / His-Son!...*(Jesus-the-Nazarene)*…

As,…does / The-Son, also: (“Indwell”),…with / His-Father!...*(Jehovah / His-Glorious-Name)*…

Tell me, dear-reader,…are we, not-asked / to-accept: the,…(“Indwelling”),…of / Jesus?...

This,…is-how-we,…all / become, as: One!... Yes!...

In,…”Virtues”,…and / in: “Mindset-and-Mission!”… Amen.

No,…”Army” / could-ever-win: any-given, war!... Unless, all-of-its,…soldiers / are-as: One!... Yes!...

In,…”Cause-and-Vision!”…

Folks!... It’s, all-about,…”Glorifying / The-Father: in what, we,…do-and-say!...

*(Please-read, John 14: 13 )*…

Note-well, the words found,…in / *(John 14: 16 )*…

“And, I,…(Jesus-speaking) / will ask, The-Father; and He,…(God) / will give you: (Another-Helper)!... To be, with you,…forever!”… Amen.

Friends. “Another-Helper”,…means, exactly / that: someone-else, uniquely-proper, separate and different. Yes!...

Apart, from,…The-Father / and: His-Son!...*(a-third-entity / if-you-will)*…

This,…(“Spirit-of-Truth”) / found-in: *(verse: 17 )*… Also,…(“Indwells”),…with-true / believers!...

For,…His-Commissioned-Work / involves: comforting-and-guiding, us,…into / all-truths!...

*(not, into any / man-made: “Doctrines-of-Devils”)*…

Dear-reader and friends. A more, powerful-truth,…cannot / exist: than-that, found in: *(John 14: 20 )*…

Folks!... Just, as,…The-Father / is-in: Jesus!... So, is,…our / Jesus: in-us!...

We, are-all-as,…One / or: we-are-not!... Amen.

Yes!... One-in-Unity!... One-in-Love!... One-in-Faith!... One-in-Service!...*(onto – others)*…

Or,….Not!...
