“TO-YOU,…CHILDREN-OF-PROMISE!”…

Friends, here am I,…once-again; bringing to you, what is clearly-written. Yet, what has been perverted-and-twisted,…by those, who; call themselves, (“Religious”)!...(please-read, Galatians 4:4).

Our Apostle-Paul, has no doubt-that,…God, (Jehovah, His-Mighty-Name); sent-forth His-Son!...(Jesus-of-Nazareth).

Now, if we’re bright enough to know that,…being, (“sent-forth”); means that someone-else, commanded the sending-forth,…then-why, do we stumble: over the simplicity-of-Christ’s, own teachings?...

Folks, His truest position is that of being,…”The Son-of-God!”…

Nowhere, in our Bible,…do we find, our Jesus; declaring out-right, that He is,…indeed: God, Himself!...

What is, God’s promise to mankind?... Answer: That, we hold the potential of becoming,…(“sons-and-daughters”); by adoption, we can become part of God’s own Family!... Joint-heirs, with His only begotten Son!...

The Son, paid for us, (in full); the price requested, by His Father!... In order, to Redeem and reconcile humanity,…back to a true-dearness; and a brand-new-nearness, with our Maker!...

The Religionist, unknowingly make this one-fact,…void; by merging both, the Father and Son,…as being: two in the same-person!...

Folks, we are recognized and finally known by God, because we have chosen to believe,…in the delivered-message; of His Son!...(verse, 5).

Yes, dear-reader and friends,…our ultimate-goal; is to become, “Christ-like”…(verse, 19). So, that,…our Heavenly-Father; can accept us, as His adopted,…children!...

Here’s why, the Muslim-Community, (the-true-descendants, of Hagar. Abraham’s, slave and concubine); shall not, inherit the Kingdom-of-God!... Why?...

Because, Hagar, (being a slave-woman, herself); bore children for slavery, (of-and-by, the fleshly act; of having inter-course, with Abraham: this is what’s-implied).

The Muslim-World, are true-descendants of,…Hagar!...

But, Sarah, (although barren, for many-years), finally conceived a son, according to the,…(”Promise”); which God, had made to Abraham!...

Hence-forth, the descendants of,…(“Isaac”),…are referred as: “The Children-of-Promise!”…(read, verses 22-28).

Biblically, it’s stated that-those,…born, according to the flesh, (referring to Hagar’s-descendants); have always, persecuted those born,…according to: the Spirit!...(referring to, God’s-own-promises; originally made, to Abraham).

So, also,…it remains, today!...

Muslims, profess to be a,…peaceful; and God,…fearing-people. Yet, they persecute Christians,…at; a-global-scale…(verse, 29).

Brothers-and-sisters, we are, (Not),…children-of-the-slave-woman, (Hagar)!... But, rather of the,…”Free-Woman”,…Sarah!... Abraham’s-true-wife.

Yes, ours is,…but-a-hope. One, of reaching a,…(”Righteousness”),…not of this; present-world!...

Yet-future, and obtainable only,…after; we are,…”Resurrected-and-Judged!”…

These others, believe that,…their own, (“utopia”); is reachable, while still occupying,…fleshly-bodies.

We, (Jesus’-Faithful-Followers), differ from those, of this,…present-age; in that, we realize one-fact. Flesh-and-blood, cannot ever inherit,…this,…Kingdom-of-God!...

Yes, our Faith is exercised,…blindly-so. Yet, we eagerly await,…for the; promised return,…of: God’s-own-Son!...(please-read, Galatians 5:3). Amen.

For, in Jesus,…there lies, our Redemption!... He returns, with,…”Rod-of-Iron”,…in hand; subjecting all governmental-rules, (at global-levels): presiding over David’s-Throne, as our promised,…Deliverer!...

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“I-KNOW,…OF-THIS,…ONE-TRUTH!”…

Friends, run-well this race of ours,…and don’t let, anyone; hinder you, from obeying the truth!...(please-read, Galatians 5:7).

How many of us, are misusing our God-Given-Freedom,…as an opportunity; to serve their own, fleshly-desires?...(verse, 13).

May we, instead,…learn to serve-one-another; through Love!...

Are we, loving-our-neighbor,…as we love, ourselves?...(verse, 14). I doubt this, to be even remotely true,…inside the lives; of the majority. It sure, would be a much-more-peaceful,…world; if, we-did-love,…our: neighbors!...

Please read, (Galatians 5:19,20,21); these are those, who shall not inherit,…the Kingdom-of-God!...

*(remember-always, when I say this; I’m referring to everyone, who insist on remaining the same: not ever changing, nor ever converting, nor ever-believing,…our truths)*…

I not only include, the, (“Muslims”),…but-also, the Buddhist; and the Hindus!...

Unless there’s a true-change, of heart-and-mind,…by comparing themselves; to what, they-today,…believe; versus, what we are sharing,…then-there, can’t ever be: change within-or-without, examining well,…all-things!...

The, (“Hindus”), believe in,…(”Re-Incarnation”),…much-like, those who believe; in the Trinity-Doctrine!...

Although, the latter,…are even, our; “brothers-in-Faith”,…they believe-that, God; has, (“incarnated”),…into, the person: of-Jesus!...

This, folks,…would be, a complete digression; instead-of-progression.

The, (“Buddhist”), seek-out,…a state-of-mind, called: (“Nirvana”)!...

But, it’s by isolating,…themselves,…as do; the Buddhist-Monks!... Yet, these very same,…come down, from their sanctuaries; to receive alms-and-food, from the rest of the,…”real-world!”...

We, (Jesus-Faithful-Followers), don’t Isolate ourselves!...

Although, we do seek-often,…a place; of solitude. Big difference, between the two. Solitude, offers us a moment to refresh ourselves. A time-out, (if-you-will), from the hustle-and-bustle,…of everyday-living; specifically separating ourselves, for the unification,…with, our Creator: of all-things!...

*Yes, it’s what the Son-of-God,…did; and it’s what-we, (His-Faithful-Followers), also do!...

Yes, a one-on-one,…time-period; of solitude. With the intent, (later), to return,…to our,…family-and-friends. Refreshed, made anew and encouraged!…

Continuing, onward,…sharing, instructing; building-up and encouraging, all-those,…around us!...(with-what, we in turn; have received-spiritually, from God: and/or, His-Angelic-Agents)…

Tell me, dear-reader and friends. How many of us, have become conceited?... Provoking one-another, envying one-another?...(read, Galatians 5:26).

Who’s really willing, to bear one-another’s-burdens?...(read, Galatians 6:2).

Let us, not deceive ourselves,…by thinking-that; we ourselves, are something to be esteemed. Like these others, who practice their faiths,…only because; they expect something, in return,…for: their,…sacrifices!...

The, (“Muslims”), and their extremist-sect,…believe-that, once martyred; unspeakable-riches, await them,…on: the-other-side. And, so they purposely,…commit, atrocities; all in the supposed, Name-of-Allah!...

Typically, these use very poor-families. Offering them, some degree of wealth-and-virtues,…enticing, young-ignorant-men; into successfully, committing,…what their own, spiritual-leaders; are,(Not),...brave-enough: to undergo, themselves!...

Many religions, out there,…share, a great-deal; of similitude!...

The Catholic-Pope and his Cardinals, wear a,…(“small-beanie”),…on their heads; much the same, as the Jews,…wear-also; a cap, on their,…heads.

In Pompous-and-Proudful, Ceremonies,…the Catholic-Hierarchy; sport, a great-hat,…resembling much,…the,…(”Fish-God”)!,…of the,…(”Nineveh-People”): of long-ago!...

This ceremonial hat, displays an,…(“open-fish-mouth”),…shaped-top!...

Throughout the ages, many rituals and traditions-of-men,…have inter-twined, themselves; often-times with the hopes, of bringing the general masses,…altogether; as One!...

Much like, the modern-day,…(”Inter-Faith-Groups”),…who-practice,…an-all-tolerant,…and-all-inclusive; doctrinal-creed!...

Folks, know this one-truth. We are as, (“Nothing”), without Christ-Jesus,…involved, inside; our personal-lives…(read, Galatians 6:3).

Do not, be deceived!... Whatever you sow, that,…will you also,…reap!....

I pray, that: “Your good-works, out-weigh,…all; of your previously,…ill-gotten-gains!”… Amen.

So, let us never grow,…weary, of doing,…(“Good”)!...(verse, 9).

Especially, to those who,…share-in-our,…(“exercised-faith”)!... Let us, do good!...(verse, 10).

Folks, it is by the,…very, will-of-God,…that we; become apostles-of-Jesus!... It’s not, by any of our-own-doing,…nor, choosing. Yes, God has His-Ways,…of often-times; bringing us, to our knees.

And, of slowing-down,…our, pace-in-life. And, of having us,…ultimately surrendering; to the serving,…of: His-will… Amen.

Truly, we are those,…(”chosen-and-destined”),…to further-along; the truths-and-merits, the valor-and-sacrifices,…of: God’s-only-Son!...

Yes, because of the,…will-of-God!... We’ve been-broken. Often-times, put-thru,…God’s-own; purifying,…Fire!... Remolded-and-shaped, poured-out,…as, fine-wine,…into: brand-new,…(“vessels-of-virtues”)!...

All the while, always,…Glorifying-God; as we realize, the purpose of our personal,…losses: and-sufferings!...

Yes, we have learned,…to put-away,…what-this-world; values most.

And, in the process,…we’ve gained, godly-wisdom; which dispels, all confusion. And, has also refined,…our knowledge,…in the, very-things; of Almighty-God!...

It’s been acquired, by the constant-and-incessant,…studying; of God’s-Written-Word!... And, by God’s-own,…convincing,…of our personal, hunger; and thirst, for,…Truth!...

Yes, God,…gives-all. But, on His own scheduling,…and, not-ever,…on-ours!...

I pray, that: “You-too, come to realize that,…what this world, has to offer-you, (dear-reader and friends); is most fleeting-and-temporal. Compared to the eternal-riches, in God’s-Glory,…which await; all those, who-believe,…in: the Son’s-Delivered-Message!”… Amen.

So, Repent,…change, your putrid-principles. Remove, your stony-hearts!... Hold fast, to this Hope,…which surpasses; all that is known, to mankind!...

Know, in the end,…that, our inner-strength; comes from knowing that, God can indeed,…be, trusted. For, He is Faithful. Like no-other, is Faithful…

I know-this-truth, because His Son,…has taught, me-so!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“ENOUGH,…IS,…ENOUGH!”…

Friends, our Bible was written,…purposely, with some degree; of redundancy. Why?...

Answer: Because, it is thru-this,…act-of-repetition, (some would call it, “drilling-it”; into our heads); that we humans, eventually retain, (to some-degree): what is, being-shared,…with us!...

And, studies have shown-that,…even, thru-repetition; on average, we truly only absorb,…about,…15-20%; of all, that is being,…fed: into our brains!...

Hence, the importance of, (“teaching”),…by using, this technique; of repetition. With this said, let’s move-on,…to Paul’s-letter; written to the, “Ephesians!”…

From the beginning, (as I’ve shared-this-fact, with you; many-times); our Apostle-Paul, greets everyone,…in both, the Names of: the Father and His-Son!...(two-separate and uniquely-proper, entities).

And, for emphasis-sake, Paul,…further-clarifies; that our living-God, (Jehovah, His-Excellent-Name), is both the God,…(“AND”),…the Father; of our appointed, Lord-and-Saviour!... Jesus-the-Christ!... (please-read, Ephesians 1:2-3).

Folks, it’s beyond my personal,…comprehension,…that-we, (as a people, in general); look past, this word,…of: (“AND”)!...

It’s a word, which we use,…(in-our-vocabulary),…principally, to include; and/or to make distinct, a point-in-case. Also, to include the separating,…of; one-person,…from-another!...

In verse, (2); Paul, greets the,…(”Ephesians”),…by saying:

“Grace to you, and peace,…from God, our Father,…(“AND”),…the Lord; Jesus-Christ!”…

Tell me, dear-reader and friends. What part, of this word,…(“AND”),…do we; not understand?...

Is it, not clear to you,…that, Paul; is speaking in behalf, of two-separate-entities?... Oh’, how I pray,…that-you, indeed; see this, simple-and-plain,…truth!... Amen.

Moving-forward, to verse, (3); “Blessed be, the God,…(“AND”),…Father; of our Lord, Jesus-Christ!... Who, has blessed us,….in Christ; with every spiritual-blessing, in the heavenly-places!”…

Here, Paul’s public-declaration,…is to, first; (“Bless”), our living-God!...

*(yes, folks. We have the power, to both bless,…and/or; to tear-down, anyone-or-anything,…by the use: of our, spoken-words)*…

Secondly, in verse, (3); Paul, most emphatically-and-unequivocally,…declares, that; Jesus does indeed, have a God!...

Who, happens to,…(also be),…His-own-Father!...

Yes, a Higher-Authority,…than, Jesus!... To whom, this Son-of-God,…remains, humble; in Love, in Unity, in Servitude,…in Cause-and-Vision: as well, in both,…Mindset-and-Mission!... Amen.

The Son,…(“Subjects-Himself”),…to this, Supreme-Being!...

As, should we humans,…who, have-also-been; created in the very-image, of this living-God!... Yes, we-who-believe,…have learned; to also, (“Subject-Ourselves”),…in servitude-and-love: to the Son-of-God!...

For the primary-reason, of praising-and-worshiping,…both; our Creator, and His-Son,…in: all-things!...

Yes, the topic and subject-matter,…here; is all-about, God!...

Who, is the Father of,…Jesus-the-Christ!...

The worldly-churches, have fallen-away from this,…(“plain-and-simple”),…truth. Yes, this in itself,…is-that; (“Great-Apostasy”), spoken of,…within, the written-pages: of our, Holy-Scriptures!...

The, (“Religionist”), have managed, (since-days-of-old); to fabricate-many-fables!... Scratching, the itching-ears,…of all those; who in earnest, have only wanted,…to: truthfully, seek-out,…truth.

Making-most-fallible, the original-message,…as commissioned, by God; to be shared, by His Son,…to: the entire-world.

Praise-God!... We’ve come, to-an-age,…where-these, ravenous-wolves; are finally being, revealed publicly!...

And, at a,…global-scale!...

Yes, all-things,…will, come into; the very, light-of-truth!... I believe, God-Himself, is saying,…today: (“ENOUGH,…IS,…ENOUGH”)!...

God’s own, Day-and-Hour,…of reckoning; draws-ever-closer!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“TO-THOSE,…WHO-BELIEVE!”…

Folks, the Bible’s-Mystery,…has been, set-forth; in Christ-Jesus!...

This truth, was made-known to us, (who-believe),…by, the very will; of His Father-in-Heaven!...(please-read, Ephesians 1:8-9).

Yes, it has been,…lavished-upon-us, (Jesus’-Faithful-Followers); the necessary wisdom-and-knowledge, all according to God’s-own-purpose!...

Yes, there’s an eternal-inheritance,…obtainable, (although, very much conditional; upon-our-repentance).

Almighty-God, (Jehovah, His-Precious-Name), counsels us,…with regards to; His overall-plan. He makes us, realize that,…we, (compared to His-own-standing); are in a, fallen-state,…of: affairs!...

We’ve received this information, (and/or counsel), by-in-and-thru,…His-Son’s; delivered message. Yes, the Gospel-News!...(verse, 11).

Folks, (“God-is-Glorified”),…by our, very; act-of-hoping, in what the Son,…has been: sent-forth, to share. Yes, it pleases the Father,…when-we, in earnest; take heed, to what the Son,…says-about: His-Father’s-Kingdom!...

Keep this truth, in its proper-perspective,…and; context!...(verse, 12).

Note-well, that only-when we believe,…the Son’s-Gospel-Message; are we then, (“gifted”), with this promised,…”Holy-Spirit!”…(verse, 13).

Thru-this, (“Other,…Comforter”),…we are then, guaranteed; our eternal-inheritance!...(as joint-heirs, with the Son-of-God). Why?...

Answer: Because, this,…(“Other,…Comforter”),…has been, also; commissioned, to guide us,…into: all-truths. And, He is to remain, down-here, (on Earth); with us, until-the-return,…of: our Saviour!...

*(a Day-and-Hour, of which only; the Father, knows)*…

Just, remember, that,…we haven’t, (“just-yet”); acquired,…nor, have-become, (“true-possessors”): of such, promised inheritance!...(verse, 14). Why?...

Answer: Because, this occurs after we are,…Resurrected-and-Judged!...(I know, I run this fact; to the ground, often).

Some, (those who, have always remained,…purposely-defiant; and have been, most-unruly,…are-termed-as: “goats”). These very same, shall be sentenced,…to an; eternal-damnation!...(Known as, the Lake-of-Fire).

*(you-see-folks, although the Bibles, speaks of a,…”second-death”; this actually refers, to being sentenced,…to-a-place: where constant torment, night-and-day,…exist.)*…

But, there’s much hope,…still. There shall be, yet-others,…who; will be welcomed, as docile-and-obedient,…sheep. Yes, good-and-faithful servants!...

These, will enter,…therein; to this promised, Kingdom-of-God!...

Note-well, this following, (verse), of,…(Ephesians 1:17)…

Again, our Apostle-Paul,…states-that, Jesus; serves a God!...

Yes, known, (among many other, titles), as the,…(“Father-of-Glory”)!...

Only, the Father,…(Jehovah, His-Mighty-Name); can give us, this,…”Spirit-of-Wisdom!”…

As well, this other,…”Spirit-of-Revelation!”…

It’s how, we truly come to know,…Who-God; truly is. Only, God,…can share, His-Glory!... And, He does so,…with-whom; He, so-ever-wills.

He’s freely given it, to His Son, (Jesus),…100-fold. Yes, in the form,…of a reward; and/or, recompense.

*(funny, how God knows-that; we will obey-and-perform, if indeed,…there’s-a-treat: behind our, good-behavior)*…

Jesus-of-Nazareth, was, (“exalted”),…to His, Father’s; right-hand-side. A direct-result, of Jesus’-own,…(exemplary-Obedience),…in fulfilling; His-Father’s-Will…

*(note-well, we wouldn’t call it, “an-exaltation”; if indeed, this doesn’t mean, that Jesus,…was promoted: to a celestial-position, of,…”great-power!”... A position, of which Jesus,…did-not-possess; prior to His, accomplished-deeds. Down here, on Earth. Although, Jesus is known to have,…descended-from-Heaven; and was the very, “first-born”, of: all-creation.)*

Jesus, was there,…before, the creation; of mankind, itself. Jesus, was there,…when, God-spoke; the words of, “Let, (“US”),…make-man,…in, (“OUR”),…own-image!”…

Yes, Jesus,…is; “God’s-Best-Workmanship!”… God, gave Jesus,…the assignment of creating; all-known-things, to mankind. But, what of the,…(“unknown-things”)?...

Folks, don’t think for one-moment,…that, God; has stopped, creating. For, He is,…from; “Everlasting-to-Everlasting!”…

Jesus, was,…(“Exalted”); and given the very-keys, to our promised,…New-Heavens and New-Earth!... Standing at His Father’s-own, right hand side,…has crowned, our Jesus; with overseeing, Authority!...

Yes, Jesus,…oversees, many; (“powers-and-principalities”), in high-heavenly-places!... Amen.

Yet, Jesus,…remains, (“Subjected”); to our, Most-High-God!...(Jehovah, and/or Yahweh: if-you-prefer)… As we are, (“Subjected-to-the-Son”); so is the Son, (“In-Subjection”),…to His-own-God: and Father-in-Heaven!...

Returning, to my point-in-case. Paul, also speaks-about,…his-own-knowledge, of God, (in other-sections, of the New-Testament); as coming from, this God-given-Gift,…(“THE-SPIRIT,…OF,…REVELATION”)!...

And, that,…(“real-truth”), is not taught, by any; man-made, institution of higher-learning,…nor-by-any: worldly-standard, of teaching. But, rather,…by, this-other,…(“SPIRIT,…OF,…WISDOM”)!... Please-read, (Ephesians 1:17)…

And, so,…in closing: “May your eyes, hearts-and-minds,…be, finally-opened; and spiritually-enlightened. So, that,…you-too, (dear-reader and friends); may come-to-know, what is our,…truest-hope!”… Amen.

The answer: To be rewarded, as the Son-of-God,…was, also; recompensed. And, to finally become part,…of; this eternal,…”Family-of-God!”…

Yes, (“sons-and-daughters”),…adopted; by-in-and-thru, our exercised-faith!...(in the, Son’s-Delivered-Message). A timeless-and-ageless, place awaits,…(“THOSE,…WHO,…BELIEVE”)!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“ON-EARTH,…AS-IT-IS,…IN-HEAVEN!”…

Friends, by the very workings of God’s-own-Powers, (which we also-call, His-exercised-Grace); we are given, the answers to what otherwise,…appears-as-mystery: to an unbeliever!...

For ages, many things were hidden, (and/or, held-back), by Almighty-God!...(Jehovah, His-Glorious-Name).

Today, dear-reader and friends,…I pray, that: “You, be granted the necessary-strength,…to endure-and-overcome; all of your, future tests-and-trials!”… Amen.

“May you also, stay grounded-and-rooted,…in this Love; which the Son-of-God, has taught us!”…

It’s because of our, exercised-faith,…that, Jesus; dwells in our, hearts-and-minds. Yes, just as the Son,…stands-today; filled with the wisdom-and-knowledge, of His Father!...

So, do we, (Jesus’-Faithful-Followers); also live, with this hope,…of being filled: with the very, fullness of our,…living-God!...

Let us, therefore strive in walking,…in such, a manner; worthy of this, calling-of-Christ!... For, only the Son,…can lead us; to the foot, of His-Father’s-Throne!...

It is there, (our-final-destination), that,…we find,…God’s-Glory!...

Further-defined, as His Goodness, His Mercy, His Graciousness,…and, Righteousness!...

Yes, these, (“divine-virtues”),…define; God’s-own-Glory!... It’s something, which God,…is freely-willing; to share. Yes, freely,…with all those; who truly dare, to Love,…Him!... Amen.

Just take, a good-look at the Son,…and, then; tell-me, this isn’t,…so!...

This Grace-and-Glory, of the Father,…is given, (or distributed); to each one, of us,…who-believes; according to the measure, of the Son’s willingness to,…(“Gift”),…us: as individuals!...(please-read, Ephesians 4:7).

Yes, there’s but,…One-God; and One-Father, of all. Who, happens to oversee,…(“all-things”)!... Why?...

Answer: Because, He,…Himself, represents; (“All,…in,…All”)!... (read, Ephesians 4:6).

This means, that Jesus,…has been, delegated; the ultimate, Authority,…to dispense, His-Father’s-Grace: according to how, Jesus,…sees-fit!...

A specific-measure, to each individual, (as the Son, sees-fit; and that, which we-are, well-able: to receive)…

All the while, this delegating-and-dispensing,…of, God’s-Grace; is overseen, by Jesus’-own-God,…and: Father-in-Heaven!... Why?...

Answer: Because, it’s the Father,…Who-has, appointed the stewardship; of His-own-Grace, unto the exercised Authority,…of: His-Loving-Son!...

It’s all part, of Jesus’-own-recompense,…for demonstrating-and-fulfilling; an exemplary-Obedience!...(towards, His-Father’s-Will).

Without-a-doubt, folks. This is an existing,…(“Hierarchy”)!...

Where, the Father,…Heads-over-the-Son!... As the Son, Heads-over-us, (who-believe)!... For, we are those,…(“willing-subjects”)!...

I pray, that: “We be, no longer children. Tossed, to-and-fro,…by the waves; and carried-about, by every wind-of-doctrine. Nor, by any human,…cunningness; nor-by-craftiness, in deceitful man-made,…schemes!”... Amen.

*(Like the, age-old; Trinity-Doctrine and erroneous, Rapture-Theory)…(read, Ephesians 4:14)*...

Please, guard-against hardening,…your, hearts-and-minds. For, this only brings-about,…darkened-understandings; alienating you further, from God!...

Don’t allow,…(“ignorance”),…to rule; your-inner-being!...(verse, 18).

Yes, we live in a world,…filled with, calloused-people; who have given, themselves up,…to: much-sensuality. They, believe the gospel-message,…with, (“sensationalism”); as their, driving-force!...

Rather, than being led,…by, God!...

Greed, causes these very same,…to practice; every kind of, (“impurity”)!...(verse, 19). But, Praise-God!...

This is, (Not), what we’ve been taught,…by; the Son-of-God!...(verse, 20).

*(Study-well, the spiritual-connotations; intended behind the concept, of being ,…”caught-up, into the air”, to meet with our Lord. And, to forever be,…with, Him!)*...

If we honor, men such as,…(”Dr. Strong”); and can appreciate those-others, like,…(“Webster”),…who-devoted, their lives: to interpreting, truths!...

Then, look-up,…in the, (“Strong’s-Concordance”); this word of, (“AIR”),…as used,…in-our-Bible!...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
P.S. *To be,…(“caught-up, into the air”),…is further, defined; by the Strong’s-Concordance, as meaning,…”Spirit!”...

This word, of,…(“AIR”); is referred to as, being,… (“caught-up in the spirit”), of-this-event!... referring to our Lord’s, second-advent. Yes, figurative-speech,…is being used, here.

Certainly, we shall all be,…(”caught-up”); but, in the,…(“spirit-of-the-event”)!... With much Joy-and-Glee, witnessing the return of our,…Saviour!... Amen.

Just, remember,…we use, many-clichés. Like when we use, the term-and-phrase,…of: (“Let’s get, caught-up; in the,…Spirit-of-Christmas”)!…

This is a fine-example, of what I’m wanting,…to-get-across,…to you!...

Truth-be-known. We shall occupy, a New-Earth!... It’s in, our Lord’s,…known; Sample-Prayer!...

“Let Your Will, be Done. On Earth, as it is,…in Heaven!”… Amen.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
P.S.S. *Also, as in the parable of the,…two-working; in the field. One is taken, and the other,…is; left-behind. Also, two-women grinding at the mill. One is taken, and the other,…is; left-behind.

Remember, that our Lord, returns,…and, He will find-things; to be, as in the,…”Days-of-Noah!”… The hidden, spiritual-connotations here,…are defined, as follows:

Those-swept-away, are done so,…because; God cannot use, them. Be it, because of them,…(“falling-away”); and believing, “doctrines-of-devils”: and/or because, they remain purposely-defiant and most unruly. Never, giving-in to being Ruled,…by; our Creator, of all-things!...

Whereas, those,…(“left-behind”),…are those; still furthering-along, what was originally,…asked-of-us,…by: the Son-of-God!...

Yes,…(“left-behind”),…still, guiding; still, encouraging others, still up-lifting,…and/or, edifying believers,…with: real-truths!...

Folks, God,…has, need-of-us,…as; His, first-hand,…witnesses!...

*(And, no,…this, doesn’t make me; a Jehovah’s-Witness. Simply, because I declare,…these-truths. For, I belong to no,…organized-religious-group; nor organization, nor institution)*...
Our witnessing, first-hand,…God’s-Mighty-Works, and Wonders; is what authenticates-and-validates, His very existence. Not, that He needs us,…at all; but-for the purposes, of leaving behind,…no-doubt: of His-Mighty-Existence!...

And, so,…going back, to that parable; of those, (“left-behind”), these-are-those, who like,…(”Noah”),…and his immediate, family-members; become that, small-remnant-class,…of people, who-shall-forever: carry-forth, God’s-Purpose,…and Plans!... Amen.

When all-ends-meet,…I’m grateful; for the promised, (“Millennial-Era”); a time-and-space, where Jesus,…will smooth-out; polish and make, well-honed,…(“all”),…of our, existing-rough-edges: in understanding, these-things,…of God!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“BEWARE,…OF-STIFF,…NECK-PEOPLE!”…

Friends, until we come to admit-and-realize,…truthfully, that; it’s our-own, personal desires,…what, deceives us-most: we will never, come to a place,…called,…(“Humility”)!...

Yes,…(“Humility”),…a necessary-condition; required of all, who seek to enter there-into,…this: Kingdom-of-God!...(Jehovah, His-Everlasting-Name).

Corruption, is the by-product of lust-and-desire!...(please-read, Ephesian 4:22).

Folks, it’s our,…(“thought-process”),…what’s-at-stake, here!...

It must be, renewed-and-restored,…from, the putrid-principles; which we have practiced, since childhood!...(verse, 23).

Our minds, is what Satan,…seeks-to-influence; the most. Persuading the, (“Head”),…results in; the rest of the body, following right-behind, (both physically-and-spiritually, speaking)!…

Yes, our many-members,…have followed-suit; manifesting-unspeakable-atrocities!...

It’s why, this,…(“Dark-One”),…presides most, right inside; our places-of-worship. Why?...

Answer: Because, only those who claim to be of,…God, are indeed; Lucifer’s-biggest-threat. This evil-entity, worries,…(Not); about those others, who live-out their, fleshly-desires,…daily!...

But, we,…(Jesus’-Faithful-Followers); who know these-truths, obstruct and delay this,…(“old-dragon”): from otherwise, controlling,…all-minds!...

Yes, He’s been allowed by God,…to possess, this title of: (“Ruler-of-the-Air”)!...

But, this Devil,…doesn’t rule; our hearts-and-minds.

Note-well, how Hollywood’s-Production-Companies, our free-press, radio-and-television media,…all, are but; a few examples, of what I mean,…by, the: (“air-ways”),…being so, negatively used!...

Yes, for decades now,…violence; has been, (“normalized”), in our society.

We’ve come to expect, more than,…mere; adventure-and-thrills,…when we: go, to the movies!...

Insensitive, we’ve become to the atrocities, (which augment, daily).

And, it has spilled, unto our,…every-day-lives; our shopping-malls, our public-schools, our places-of-work,…and our: public-places of entertainment!...

Unstoppable, and finally accepted,…by the, general-masses!...

Metal detectors-and-wands, used to scan our bodies,…prior to entering; airplanes, and sport-stadiums!...

Everyone, accepting it as our,…”new-norm!”…

Criminals, possessing weapons, (assault-rifles, with extended magazines); in the countless, black-market-avenues,…available!...

Folks, regulating the purchasing of guns,…isn’t, going-to-control; delinquent activity, carried-out by felons,…and: ex-cons!...

Getting back, to my point-in-case.

Almighty-God, and His exercised Power,…of the, (“Spoken-Word”); manifested-many-things. Yes, God,…spoke; and things, became real.

They materialized-physically, and offered us,…all: true-substance!...

This once,…(”Angel-of-Light”),…hence-the-name, (“Lucifer”); was one of,…”God’s-Best-Creations!”...

Given-Great-Powers, (by our living-God),…this Angel,…somehow-forgot,…Who; indeed, is the very,…“Giver-of-Life!”…

He, actually came to believe-that,…He, (Lucifer); can war-against, our Maker,…and, win-over: the praise-and-worship, of us,…humans!...

And, to some-degree,…he-has; achieved, this goal.

Folks, gullible-we-remain,…if we don’t, recognize-that; these dark-forces, (Satan, and his Fallen-Angels; called, demons), not-only, exist,…they-are-also: a well-lubed, running machine!...

Anyway,…the topic-here; is the subject-matter, of,…(“Sound-Waves”)!...

(“Satan”), controls the,…(“AIR”)!...

This is further, interpreted as the,…(“sound-waves”),…which travel; without restrictions. And, thru these sound-waves,…this, (“old-dragon”); has managed to influence, the masses!...

Subliminally and/or consciously, this dark-entity,…persuades, his-own; insurgents!...

Yes, these very same,…follow; his-filthy-ways.

Take, the Music-World,…for, example. It’s a fine-avenue, for conquering,…young-immature-minds; and,…under-developed-individuals,(spiritually-speaking),…who, in the end: are most, easily confused,…and led-astray!...

(“Emotions”), like hate, murder, sexual-immorality and violence,…has imploded; within-and-without, our once,…(“Nation,…Under,…God”)!...

Then, we wonder,…why, our-prayers; aren’t being, answered?...

The only time, we hear the phrase,…”Oh,…My,…God!”,…is when; someone is expressing, some-sort of,…(“sensationalism”); or when, atrocity, calamity-and-fatality,…has: struck-home!...

This phrase, in itself,…has become, offensive!... Why?...

Answer: Because, I’m sure God,…would prefer, that; we use it, in positive-tones,…to praise-and-worship: Him!...

And, not as, an every-day,…freely-expressed; fashionable-cliché…

Funny, how we’ve learned to abbreviate,…everything; even those-things, offensive!...

Like, the term-and-phrase of,…(“L.G.B.T.”),…and, sometimes; I’ve seen some, include the letter,…(“Q”): to these, perverted-and-twisted,…groups!...

All done, in the name of,…not, (“otherwise”),…uttering-aloud, and publicly; what they really, stand for!...

“Lesbians, Gays, Bi-Sexuals, Transgenders,…and yes, even; Queers!”... Why?...

Answer: We, abbreviate these titles,…because; we-know-that, they,…deep-inside: embarrass the general-public!...

Although, we, (as-a-society), will never admit,…to-this-truth!...

I remember, when I was a small child,…that, the word, (Queer); referred to everything-and-everyone, who was completely,…different: (meaning, in an awkward-manner)!...

And, the word,…(“Gay”),…was likened, to the word,…(“Glee-or-Joyous”)!... But, our-own, guilty-consciousness,…has-given, new-meaning; to once, long-ago,…old: common-phrases!...

I wonder, how well,…we-will-hide; what is right, and what is wrong?...

Especially, come,…Judgment-Day!...

A Day-and-Hour, where we,…shall all,…be required, to account; for what, we-have-done!…

Both, the good-and-the-bad!...

Yes, both the,…right-and-the-wrong; which we have, done!…

Dear-reader and friends, we are on a,…one-way-ticket; to Hell. There’s no hope, for mankind,…and-our; self-destructive-deeds!...

Nobody, likes real-truths. Why?...

Answer: Because, they convict us,…dearly-and-deeply; exposing the wretchedness, of our,…inner-souls!...

Almighty-God, has patiently allowed us,…to show, Him; differently. Yet, we have only managed,…to-prove-that,…we, cannot; govern ourselves, effectively!...

Public-Schools, have become,…(”war-zones”). Road-rage and senseless, drive-by-shooting,…have become, the order; of each-day!...

Dear-reader and friends, the,…(“right-to-bear-arms”),…was established, for the primary-purpose; of defending ourselves, from otherwise,…invading-forces!...

And, at times,…even, from; unwanted intruders, entering into our homes,…wanting-to-take, by force; what we’ve, otherwise,…worked-so-hard: to acquire!...

But, somehow,…we’ve managed, to lose-control; of this right, to defend our-own,…Freedom!... Why?...

Answer: Because, this Freedom,…(society-in-general); has turned it, into what’s called,…”Libertism!”…

Yes, where every person,…is doing, what; he-or-she believes, is the, (“right-thing”),…to do: in their own, minds!...

Don’t forget, all-the-while,…the topic, of how; our-very-minds, are being influenced,…negatively: and by, whom!...(Satan, implied).

There’s no more regard, to laws,…put-in-place; for the primary-purpose, of protecting-and-serving,…our communities!...

That’s-right!... We’ve become, a lawless-nation,…(America)!...

And, a very,…(“STIFFED,…NECK,…PEOPLE”)!... Amen.

Folks, we were created,…for praising-and-serving; our Creator!... Not, to be praised,…by others, (conceiting-our-concepts); nor to be, served-upon by others,…as if we, were; some sort of, idols-or-gods,…unto,…ourselves!...

Rock-Stars, Movie-Stars, Political-Parties,…and the Elite-Class; of private-citizens, (the wealthy-implied), all these,…we’ve-made: into, (“gods”)!...

Look at, (“Elvis”),…look at,…(”Michael-Jackson”),…look at,…(”Prince”)!…

All of them, are fine-examples,…of how; mankind will, self-destruct,…when idolized: by the general-masses!... Why?...

Answer: Because, we weren’t made,…to be, worshipped; but-rather, to worship our,…Maker!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“EXPOSING,…RAVENOUS,…WOLVES!”…

How can we believe, our Apostle-Paul,…if, for one-moment; he declares that, Jesus’-Sacrifice was indeed,…a, (“fragrant-offering”): to God?...(please-read, Ephesians 5:2).

And, then,…there-after; claim as believers, that Christ-Jesus,…is truly: God, Himself?...

I pray, that: “You clearly see, the contradiction,…here. And, that you don’t excuse it away,…by-merely-repeating; what you’ve been told, by others. That, God’s-own-Nature,…is really; a complex-one. Only-those, who haven’t considered and examine-well,…all-things; repeat what others-say, without questioning for themselves,…what-is: Jesus-saying, for Himself?”… Amen.

Many, have taken the claims, the expressed-and-figurative speeches,…and/or metaphoric-messages; and have turned them, into complete,…”Doctrines-of-Devils!”…

And, if you’ve read any of, our New-Testament,…then, you would know-that; our Apostle-Paul, warned the first-century,…(“Churches-of-God”),…of the existing, divisions: among-the-ranks!... Amen.

Tell me, dear-reader and friends. Why, would God,…be offering, Himself-up; as a supposed, (“fragrant-sacrifice”)?... Unless, we were to be worshiping,…a; (“pompous-and-proudful”), Creator,…who-adores, praising Himself; by, masquerading,…as: other-persons!...

Folks, contra-dictions and deceptions,…come only; from the Devil, himself. Yes, completely out-of-place,…is the, “Trinity-Doctrine!”…

Something, centuries old now,…and conjured-up; by cunning-clergymen!...

Yes, men of the,…(“Cloth”)!... Instead of, men from,…God!... Impure-impostors, covetous imitators,…of our,…Christ-Jesus!...

These very same, have been men,…who-focus-on,…pleasing themselves; their man-made, institutions of higher-learning,…mean everything: to them!...

Friends, fabricated-fables,…have-no-real, inheritance; inside the Kingdom-of-God!... Our Apostle-Paul, has forewarned us,…since, days-of-old. Have you read it?... Oh’, how I pray,…so!... Amen.

The Son, has been appointed,…to preside,…inside-this; Dominion-of-God!... He shall be, our King!... Jesus-of-Nazareth, ruling from David’s-Throne!...

Please-read, (Revelation 22:3)…

Yes, our New-Jerusalem, (as promised, shall descend from Heaven); as a new, global-government. And, inside-its-walls,…we shall find; (“Two-Thrones”)!...

“No longer, will there be anything,…accursed. But, the Throne-of-God,…(“AND”),…of the Lamb, (referring to the Son); will be, in it!”…(read, Revelation 22:3).

Dear-reader and friends, let us never forget that,…there are indeed; many powers-and-principalities, occupying,…high-heavenly-places!...

Starting, with our,…”Most-High-God!”…(Jehovah, His-Majestic-Name).

Then, there’s His-Son, (second-in-command; if you will). Yes, Jesus,…occupying, David’s-Throne; as ordained, by-our-Creator!...

*(you-know, there’s truly, one-real-advantage,…in, (Not), belonging; to any established, institution, organization,…and/or: religious-order. We are those, who,…(“stand-to-lose”),…nothing; by sharing these, hard-and-unpopular,…truths)*…

All the contrary, I live with the hope of,…(”falling-into-favor”); with Jesus’-own-God, and Father-in-Heaven!... Why?...

Answer: Because, I,…(“dare-to-go”),…where, many; dread-to-tread!...

Yes, friends. Traditions-of-men, with their pagan-practices,…have been; so-deeply-rooted, and well-steeped,…in-stupor, (for-ages-now); to the point-that,…those, who are deceived; remain so, simply because they lack,…the necessary boldness: to examine-well, all-things!...

Yes, these very same,…don’t-dare; muddy the waters, which they tread. For, fear of being ousted, from their,…tight-inner-circles; from their circles-of-influence. Yes, men-pleasers,…instead, of God; pleasers!...

As I, come to a close, with this passage,…let, no-one; deceive you!... For, many speak with,…(“empty-words”)!...

These are those, sons-and-daughters,…of much, disobedience. And, to whom,…the very-wrath; of,…Almighty-God, shall come upon!...(read, Ephesians 5:6).

Therefore, do not become partners,…with these, mentioned…(verse, 7).

Let us, always-strive in discerning,…what is pleasing; to the Son-of-God!...(verse, 10).

I thank, our living-God,…that-today; many things, are finally being made,…publicly known,…and exposed. Including, the works of those who,…for centuries, have-been-abusing; our, children-of-tomorrow!... Amen.

“TO-YOU,…FRIENDS-OF-GOD!”…

Friends, nothing can be clearer,…as we read; the New-Testament-Writings!...

The Son, always submits to His own God,…and; Father-in-Heaven!...(and He does so, out-of-reverence).

As we, (Jesus’-Faithful-Followers), should also submit, to one-another, (referring first-and-foremost, to our own household of: faithful, brothers-and-sisters); in the midst of this, act-of-reverencing,…our: Saviour!...(please-read, Ephesians 5:21).

Know always, this truth. That, whatever,…(“good”),…anyone does; this, he-or-she,…will receive-back: from our Lord!...(read, Ephesians 6:8). Yes, some,…30. Some,…60. And, even-others,…100-fold!...


I pray-that, you,…”Dear-reader and friends, be well-able to stand-against,…the very schemes,…of the Devil. Yes, against all of his,…(fiery-darts). His cunning-and-subtle-ways, are bar-none. And, the,…(“false-gentleness”),…(as-doves), which this Dark-One,…displays: he-does-so, incessantly!”… Amen. (verse, 11).

Yes, Lucifer,…is, indeed; a spiritual-force, of evil. Who, presents himself,…as though, he were; even an, “Angel-of-Light!”…

But, this old-dragon,…has no light, in him. Just like our Moon, appears to shine-forth,…at night; this celestial-body, truly,…(“only-reflects”): the Sun’s-Rays!...

So, it’s true of Satan,…as well. He, doesn’t radiate any,…(“light-of-truth”)!... He, only imitates and appears to be,…delightful; to our-own, eyes.

Remember-that, our,…(“Eve”),…fell, to this; effective-snare!...

Deception, is the,…Devil’s-best-weaponry. Smoke-n-mirrors, are the instruments-of-choice,…used; by this, impostor!...

Folks, our exercised-faith,…is our, shield; which extinguishes, all the flaming-darts,…of this evil-one!...(verse, 16).

I love, how our Apostle-Paul,…opens-and-closes; his letter written, to the,…(“Ephesians”)!...

Yes, in both cases,…Paul, clearly-depicts; and distinguishes, the all-too-important, fact,…that, we are to; always, reverence,…both: the Father,…(“AND”),…His-Son!...

Yes, in all that we do,…say, and/or; write!... Amen.

Please-read, (Ephesians 1:2-3). And,…(read, Ephesians 6:23).

Yes, may-you-too,…always-display; God’s-Good-Grace, His Love-and-Peace,…unto, others; as you exercise-daily, this eternal-faith,…of ours.

And, from,…(“where-and-whom”),…does this; come from?...

These everlasting-virtues, originate from our,…very: (“Father-of-Lights”)!...

He, has taught,…His-Son, (Jesus); much-divine, wisdom and knowledge!... And, in turn,…today, the Son; freely-shares, His unspeakable-riches,…with-whom, so-ever: will believe, on Jesus-of-Nazareth!...

And, on His Delivered-Message,…regarding, this eternal-Salvation; offered by, Jesus’-own-God,…to; the whole, of humanity. For, there is a dire-need,…for; more laborers!...

Yes, for the furthering-along,…of these; (“good-news”)!...

Yearn, to become more than,…mere-servants; to the Son-of-God!... Yes, long to be that,….(“FRIEND,…OF,…GOD”)!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“DARE-TO-BE,…LIKE,…DANIEL”…

Friends, if we are to believe our,…Bible; then let us, also believe our,…Apostle-Paul’s; incessant-manner, in which he greets,…all, the various-churches: during that, first-century-era!...(please-read, Philippians 1:2).

“Grace-to-you, (Paul, directs himself to the congregation; of believers), an peace from God,…our Father; (“AND”), the Lord,…Jesus-Christ!...”

Paul’s, public-declarations, as well,…(“Jesus’-own-quoted”),…utterances,…(“far-out-weigh”); the misinterpreted-and-misunderstood,…(“one-liner-phrases”), of such men,…like: our infamous, (“Doubting-Thomas”)!...

This Apostle-of-Christ, is recognized as,…an individual,…who-doubted; the very-act, of Jesus’-Resurrection!...(“the-very, basis-of-our-faith”)… For, because Jesus,…lives; we will also, see our,…eternal-tomorrows!... Amen.

Many, are those, who have,…expressed-themselves,…(“figuratively-speaking”)!...

It was, on Jesus’-second-appearance, (not, on His first); in that upper-room, that this,…(“Apostle-Thomas”),…was finally, convinced; that his Lord-and-Saviour, had indeed,…been-raised, from: among-the-Dead!...

Here, was the Messiah!... Standing, in front of Thomas,…(in a, de-facto-manner)!... *Previous, to this event,…Jesus, had already; shown Himself, to His Disciples,…in that: upper-room!*...

Thomas, missed-out on something,…(“very-special”),…that occurred, in that; first-appearance, of Christ!...

Jesus, had,…(“breathed-into-the-Disciples”),…the very, Power: of the Holy-Spirit!... Yes, a transferrable Power!...

From, the Father,…to His, only begotten-Son!... And, now,…from the Son; unto those, whom-Jesus,…saw-worthy: of receiving!...

With this given, (“Power”),…these; Disciples-of-Christ, were,…well-able, to accomplished; all of their, future assignments,…of healing; of expelling-demonic-possessions, and yes,…of-even: raising-the-Dead!...

Something, by the way,…(“not-ever-replicated”); since those, early-days,…of the established,…(“Church-of-God”)!... This is the true-name, of the,…(“congregations-of-believers”),…as identified; within the written-pages, of our,…New-Testament!...

So, by Thomas,…being absent; He did, (Not),…receive-this-gift, of the: Holy-Spirit-Power!...

Was it, planned this way,…by our Lord?... Did, Jesus,…already know; that Thomas, would doubt,…The Father’s, (“Resurrection-Power”): to raise, the Son?...

Our Bible, doesn’t mention,…that-our, Apostle-Thomas; also-received, this Power!... Whereas, the others,…did. By Jesus, breathing-it-into,…them…(on Jesus’-first-appearance, in that: upper-room)…

So, you-bet!… We can, indeed,…lose-out; on certain-gifts, by doubting!...

Thomas, didn’t believe,…his, (“brothers-in-Faith”)!... This Apostle, most-likely,…missed-out, in receiving; the Holy-Spirit-Power, which was otherwise,…(“blown and/or, breathed-by-Jesus: unto His, other Disciples”)!...

Yes, Jesus,…Risen-from-the-Dead!... What was, shed-upon the Son,…was, indeed; God’s-own-Resurrection,…Power!.. All-done, according to the,…Father’s-own-will.

An unmatched-power, (“Transferrable”), and indeed,…most-selective, as to; who-else, would receive this,…marvelous-gift!...

This was something, (“ordained-and-exercised”),…most-specifically, and uniquely-proper; to that, first-century-era,…of the established; (“Church-of-God”)!... As, so-stated,…in; our Bible!... Amen.

Only, when Thomas,…touches, Jesus’-wounds; is he then, convinced that the Messiah,…Lives!... Thomas, then utters-the-words,…(“My Lord and my,…God”)!...

*Note-well, one truth. Jesus’ transfigured-body, upon His-Resurrection,…is well-able; to take-on, whatever form is necessary,…to accomplish: the Father’s-Will*…

In this case, Jesus,…demonstrates-to-Thomas; His previously-existing, fleshly-wounds. Which served-as-sufficient proof, for Thomas,…to-thereafter; believe!...

*Let’s not forget, also,…that, Jesus; took-on a different, (physical-form, if-you-will); which fogged, the ability to be recognized,…by those: two men, walking to the,…(“place of hot-springs, and/or baths”)*…

This occurred, immediately after He was Resurrected,…by His-Father!... Right-after, Jesus,…(“was-first-witnesses”),…by; Mary-Magdalene. To this woman, Jesus,…presented-Himself; as Who, He had always,…been. This woman, Mary,…recognized-her-Lord; immediately.

So, what can we learn from this?... Folks, just like the Angels-in-Heaven,…transformation, (metaphorically-speaking); occurs like when, a caterpillar-transforms,…itself: from a crawling-worm, into a beautiful-butterfly!...

*We-too, are promised an incorruptible-existence. We shall stand, as Jesus,…stands-today!... In-the-Spirit!... The spiritual-realm, is not limited as we are. Their capabilities, surpasses mankind’s knowledge,…and, all-that-is; sublime-and-surreal*… Amen.

Getting-back, to my point-in-case. Folks, from Thomas’-expression,…of shame-and-guilt; millions-of-people, have decided to believe in,…(“fabricated”),…(“Doctrine-of-Devils”)!...

That’s-right!... From the mouth, of our,…(“Doubting-Thomas”)!...

One, who-was ultimately,…(“shamefully-embarrassed”); finding no other option, but-that-of,…believing, by seeing: with his, own-eyes!...(our, Risen-Lord)…

Prior, to this event,…Thomas, had declared that; he must see, the Lord, (in person), before he would ever,…believe-that: Jesus, has indeed defeated,…Death, itself!...(by the exercised-grace, of His Father-in-Heaven)…

It’s why, Jesus-responded,…to this, Apostle-Thomas: “Blessed is he, who believes,…without; having-to-see!”…

What’s my, point-in-case,…then?...

I, for one,…am going, to believe; more-so, our Apostle-Paul,…who-incessantly, promotes: the Father, (“AND”),…His-Son!...

Yes, as being,…(“two-uniquely-proper”),…entities!...

And, yes,…I believe, more-so; Jesus’-own, (“quoted-words”),…when, He says: “My Father, is Greater than,…I”…(Please-read, John 14:28).

Dear-reader and friends, only what,…(“Jesus-says”),…truly-matters-most. Secondly, our Apostle-Paul,…occupies; the better-half, of our,…”New-Testament-Writings!”... Why, is this so?...

Could it be, that perhaps,…those-involved, in binding; this Great-Book, (called-the-Bible), wisely chose, (“this-loyal-follower”), of Jesus,…as an: exemplary-servant, of our Faith?...

Remember, always-that,…Almighty-God, (Jehovah, His-Glorious-Name); purposely defies, our-own,…human-logic. It’s how, He demonstrates that,…His-Ways; are indeed, much,…(“higher-than”),…ours!...

God, always uses those,…(“least-likely-candidates”; and turns them, into great Ambassadors,…for, God’s-own: purposes-and-plans”)!...

Yes, the,…”Last-shall-be-first. And, the first,…shall-be-last!”…

In everyone’s-eyes, this man called,…Saul, (whose-name, later was, changed-to-Paul); was indeed, a persecutor, of the early-established-church!... And, the,…(“last-person”),…ever-thought-of; to freely-and-willingly,…represent, Jesus’: original-gospel, Message!...

Yes, Paul of,…”Tarsus!”…

A converted, servant-of-our-Saviour!... And, true-friend-of,…our, living-God!...

Paul, after experiencing a personal-relationship,…(“and-encounter”),…with this, Son-of-God; gave himself-fully, as an effective-instrument!...

One, that-thru,…many, (“tests-and-trials”),…became, finally; well-honed and polished, finely-tuned,…Honoring, always: both the Father, and His-Son!... (Whole-heartedly).

Yes, Paul’s-Public-Pronouncements,…ultimately-became, a sweet-melody; to our Master’s-Ears!...

So, let’s guard-against becoming,…just, another; (“Doubting-Thomas”)!... Who, missed-out,…on receiving,…a very-special-gift; called,…the Holy-Spirit-Power!...

Let us, instead-strive,…in becoming; more, like our,…Daniel-the-Prophet; (found, in our: Old-Testament)!...

Yes, friends.


Dare-to-be,…like,…Daniel.
Dare-to-share,…God’s-Truths!…
Dare,…to-make-them,…known...

Yes,…Dare-to-be,…like,…Daniel.
Dare,…to-stand,…Alone!... Amen.

Izzy!...

“WE-LIKE-JESUS,…GLORIFY-GOD,…IN-ALL”…

Friends, I-just-like,…our, Apostle-Paul; pray-that,…”Your Love, may abound,…more-and-more, as together; we continue to grow, in knowledge-and-spiritual,…discernment. Yes, with these things,…that; matter-the-most!”… Amen. (please-read, Philippians 1:9).

For, if we attain this,…(“fruit-of-righteousness”),…it is only, because the Son; has shown us, (His-Faithful-Followers),…HOW!...

And, once this wisdom-and-knowledge,…is acquired, (referring to, this fruit-of-righteousness); may we, never forget,…that-it-is,…ultimately; for the purpose, of Glorifying-and-Praising,…Almighty-God!...(Jehovah, His-Mighty-Name)…(verse, 11).

And, may you,…dear-reader and friends; become each day, more bold to speak this,…(“Word”): without fear!...(verse, 14).

Let us, always share this gospel,…from our, (“good-will”); and out-of-Love!... And, not as our enemies,…speak of our, gospel; out-of-envy, and rivalry!...(verses, 15-16).

Folks, our Salvation comes from,…God!... Yes, by-in-and-thru,…the already-accomplished; merits and sacrifices, of His-Son!...(Jesus-of-Nazareth).

Could, our manner of living-this-life,…be ever; worthy-of-meeting, Christ’s-gospel-Message?... Oh’, how I pray,…so!... Amen.

May we, (despite our circumstances-nor-situations), stand firm in,…One-Spirit; and with One-Mindset, striving side-by-side,…in: our exercised-faith!...

All done, for the sake,…of the; (“Son’s-Delivered-Message”)!...(verse, 27).

A clear-sign, that we disarm,…(our-opponents),…is our; fearless-faith!...(verse, 28).

Folks, our Apostle-Paul,…encourages us, all; to strive in maintaining, the same,…(“mindset-and-mission”),…which: the Father and His-Son, exercise!...

For, God,…desires-most, that; none should, perish!...(read, Philippians 2:2).

To you, preachers, pastors-and-priests,…read, carefully!...(verses, 3-4).

Note-well, the following verse,…(6); though, Jesus was in the form-of-God, (“figuratively-speaking, and not-literal-language; being used, here”); Jesus, did,…(Not),…count-Himself, equal with God: a thing, to be,…”grasped!”… Why?...

Answer: Are we humans, not also created,…in the very-image, of God?... Yet, we cannot, count-ourselves,…to be, (“equal”); to God!...

Jesus, couldn’t, (“grasp”),…this, (“Equality”),…with-God!... Simply, because,…there’s only, One!... “Most-High-God!”…(Jehovah, and/or Yahweh: if-you-prefer).

Jesus, (“emptied-Himself”), by taking the form,…of a servant. Born, in the likeness,…of; men. Why?...

Answer: Because, He was sent by His-Father!... Commissioned-to-serve, and He must enter, (this-fleshly-realm/physical-dimension; if you will), thru the,…(“womb-of-woman”),…like; the rest-of-us!...

Jesus, did all that was required,…of Him!... Our Apostle-Paul, was brilliant-enough,…to know,…that, Jesus; could never count, (“Equality”),…with, God: a thing-to-be, “grasped!”…(please-read, Philippians 2:6).

No one, can,…for-that-matter!...

We can, only, (“empty-ourselves”),…in service, to Christ-Jesus!...

As, the Son,…(“emptied-Himself”),…in service, to His-own-God,…and; Father-in-Heaven!...(verse, 7).

I pray, that-this: “Is most-clear, to you,…all. Further-more, in (verse, 9); it reads that, God,…(highly-exalted); His-Son,…(Jesus)!... Bestowing upon the Son, a position of,…(“higher-authority”)!”… Amen.

Yes, a position,…that, Jesus; didn’t occupy, previously. Otherwise, we cannot call it,…(“An-Exaltation”)!...(read, Philippians 2:9).

It’s to the,…(“Glory-of-God”),…that-we, (who, believe); confess that, Jesus is our,…Lord-and-Saviour!... Ruling-over, our personal-lives…(verses, 10-11). Amen.

“THESE-ARE,…UNSPOKEN-UNDERSTANDINGS!”…

Friends, do we not,…find-ourselves, in the midst; of a crooked-and-twisted, generation?...(please-read, Philippians 2:15).

That’s-right!... Nothings’ really changed, under our,…Sun!...

Tell-me, dear-reader and friends,…who-of-you; is genuinely concerned, for the welfare of,…another?...(verse, 20).

To me, these-truths which we find, inside of our,…Bible; are indeed, most convicting. And, if you don’t feel this way,…when you read, them; then perhaps, none of this,…is quite, for you: just-yet!...

As for me, my inner-consciousness,…finds itself, profoundly-convicted; each day and each time, I open my Bible!... Why?...

Answer: Simply, because I realize that, we are all,…(“wretched-sinners”)!... To admit, anything else,…is-to-live; a complete, and utter,…lie!...

And, it’s why I’ve striven, to change my heart-and-mind,…inwardly, (for these last, 18 years); no longer seeking, my own interests. But, rather,…I’ve learned, to pursue; what my Lord, (Jesus-of-Nazareth), asks of every,…believer!...(verse, 21).

That-being, to serve as His,…(“brother-in-Faith”)!...

Yes, by partaking in, (“the-furthering-along”), of His,…original-gospel-message. This Son-of-God, commissioned by His, Father-in-Heaven,…in, turn; commissions us,…(“His-Faithful-Followers”), to follow,…Him!...

Note-well, the,…”hidden-manna”,…(spiritual-connotations); expressed by our, Apostle-Paul,…found in: (verse, 22).

Although, Paul,…speaks-about,…Timothy, (his, brother-in-faith); Paul, knowingly-or-not,…also-speaks-about an:

(“UNSPOKEN,…UNDERSTANDING”)!... Amen.

Yes, we, (like-Jesus), are also asked,…to serve; as a son, would serve his-or-her,…father. In a faithful-manner, and with much,…(“proven-worth”)!...

Specifically, regarding the act-of-sharing,…these, gospel-news!...(read, Philippians 2:22).

Yes, folks!... Paul, illustrates a-sort-of,…(“type”); of the already-existing, intimate relationship,…which, has always; been present, between the Son, (Jesus),…and: His-Father!...(Jehovah, His-Glorious-Name).

Read, verse, (25); and ask yourselves, today,…”Am I, one of these,…(”brothers-in-faith”)?…

Am I, considered by Almighty-God,…to be, a fellow-worker; and soldier, (in-Christ’s-Cause)?...

Am I, truly a, (“messenger”),…who-ministers; to the needs, of others?... Oh’, how I pray,…so!... Amen.

Why, should we be, asking ourselves,…these-questions?...

Answer: Because, (“faith-and-works”),…walk; hand-in-hand. Without, (“good-deeds”), performed in behalf, of the Son’s-Name,…all-else; we do-or-say, (for-that-matter), results in,…nothing-short: of,…vain-glory!...

In closing, I plead-with-you,…”Ask yourselves, if there’s anything lacking,…in your, service; to our Saviour?... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

(“ALL-THINGS”),…COME-FROM-GOD!...

Friends, mankind can indeed have-hope,…in becoming, righteous!... How?...

We arrive at being,…(“Righteous”),…by exercising, our Faith; in the Son-of-God!... By, believing,…that, He; was raised, from among the Dead!...(for-this, is the basis; of our entire-faith).

Yes, raised by His,…Father-in-Heaven!...(Jehovah, His-Precious-Name)…(please-read, Philippians 3:9).

Yes, this acquiring-of-righteousness,…comes-from-God, (as, all-things; come-from-God); but, it’s very-much,…a conditional-matter!...

It depends, upon,…Faith!... Why?...

Answer: Because, without Faith,…we cannot; ever, please,…God!... And, we can’t be,…(“Saved”),…if we don’t; (“fall-into-favor”), with this living-God!... How, can we fall-into-favor,…with, God?...

Answer: By, believing in the Son’s-Sent-Forth,..Message!...(with regards to, His-Father’s-Kingdom). Yes, the Son,…was, sent-to-us; by His own, God!... Who, happens also to be,…His-Father!...

You, see,…folks; God wants us, to understand most,…that, it’s-about: becoming part, of His chosen-and-destined,…Family!...(or-not).

“This is My-Beloved-Son. In whom, I am well-pleased. Listen-to-Him!”… God, spoke-these-words,…on that,…“Mount-of-Transfiguration!”… Our Apostles,…Peter, James and John; will attest, to this truth.

And, also,…at, Jesus’-own-baptismal; those same words, were spoken out-loud,…and were heard; by witnesses, to have come, (descended),…from Heaven,…itself!...

John-the-Baptist, as well,…countless-others-present, (on that, Day-and-Hour); will attest, to this truth!...

Yes, it pleases Almighty-God,…very-much, when-we; finally begin to listen-well, to the Son’s-Message!... Why?...

Answer: Because, the Son is God’s-own-Messenger,…Ambassador, Mediator!... And/or, Intercessor,…whose-primary-goal; is to reconcile us, (mankind), back to an intimate,…dearness-and-nearness: with our-own, Maker!... Amen.

Verbatim, emphatically-and-unequivocally,…Jesus-of-Nazareth; brings us, His-Father’s-Message,…of: Salvation!...

Folks, the very,…(“Power,…of,…Resurrection”),…comes from, the Mighty-Hands: of this God, whom I speak,…of.

Yes, our calling,…comes-also-from,…God!... As, (“all-things”),…come-from-God!...(read, Philippians 3:14).

It’s all found,…(“BY”),…your, earnest-desire; to seek,…real-truth,…in-all-things!...

It’s found,…(“IN”),…the person-of-Christ; because He, is the best-example of God’s-own,…”Workmanship!”…

And, it’s found,…(“Thru”),…this Son-of-God; Who, willingly offered Himself,…by shedding; His blameless-blood, ultimately making an eternal-atonement,…reuniting-humanity: with our Creator!... Amen.

Note-well, one-truth. Read, carefully,…verse, (19):

The, (“god”),…of many, resides; in their belly. Yes, gluttons-we’ve-become, (in more-ways, than one). From a physical-aspect,…take: (“Obesity”),…defined as those-being, more than, (30 lbs.),…over-weight.

(“Spiritually-speaking”), we take-in,…(and/or, consume),…much-here-say; uttered by others, who themselves,…are-only, repeating: what they’ve, heard!...(without-ever-really, examining-well; on their own, all-things).

Folks, even the very,…(“Demons”),…know-that,…Jesus; is the Son-of-God!... Never-once, did any demon,…identified-within, our Bible; ever call, our Jesus,…God: Himself!... All the contrary, from afar,…these, demons; recognized our Jesus, approaching!…

And, many times,…demons, would plead; for the Son-of-God, to either leave them,…alone: and/or to allow them, to enter into,…other, animal-entities. Such, is the desire of these fallen-angels,…to occupy; some-sort-of, fleshly-existence!...

Yes, we humans,…are coveted; by fallen-angels, (demons)… It’s why, they enter, (or possess),…the bodies; of humans and/or animals, indiscreetly-so!...

Getting back, to my point-in-case. Many, for centuries-past,…have ingested-and-digested; fabulous-fables-and-follies!... Of which, in turn,…they’ve-learned; to only regurgitate, unto others. Ultimately, appearing outwardly,…to be filled; with much wisdom-and-knowledge!...

Their glory, is in their,…shameful-acts; as these very same, practice-putrid-principles,…all the while: standing behind, pompous-pulpits. Why?...

Answer: Simply, because,…deep-inside, their own hearts-and-minds; these have set,…(“themselves”),…only,…on: Earthly-Things!...(read, Philippians 3:19). To include, sharing a perverted-and-twisted,…version; of our gospel.

All to meet, their hidden-agendas,…acquiring-always; ill-gotten-gains!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“WHAT’S-THIS,…ALL-ABOUT?”…

Friends, note-well,…our, Apostle-Paul’s; directive!...(please-read, Philippians 3:1).

“To write, the same things,…to you, (dear-reader and friends); is no trouble, to me. And, is safe for you!”… Amen.

My sentiments, exactly. I, also,…feel, no shame; in repeating myself-nor-my, message. Why?...

Answer: First-and-foremost, because it’s Jesus’-own,…gospel-message, (not-mine, at all). And, we, (His-Faithful-Followers); are but, His-Father’s,…chosen-and-destined: messengers!...

It’s not, about you. It’s not, about me. And, even the Son-of-God,…says-that, it’s; (Not),…about: Him!...

No, sir!...

It’s, all-about,…the Father’s-Kingdom!... Yes, an eternal-place. Transcending the sublime-and-surreal. It’s, all-about,…a Plan-and-Purpose; designed by our, Deity!...(Jehovah, His-Majestic-Name).

It’s, all-about,…His-Resurrection-Power!... God’s own ability, to lift His,…(“sentencing”); of our, inevitable Death!... Why?...

Answer: Because, ultimately,…He, is a; God-of-Love!...

Yes, He,…chastises; because-of-Love!...(spare-the-rod, and spoil-the-child)… This-too, if often-times,…misinterpreted-and-misunderstood!...

We aren’t, to beat-up on our children!...

But, there are times-and-situations,…when-and-where; disciplinary action, (“exercised-in-Love”),…is, indeed: most-effective!... Yes, a time-and-place,…where-words; just-won’t-do, anymore!...

And, the lack of,…exercising,…(“this-loving-authority”),…over, our children-of-tomorrow; has gotten us, (as a society, in general), where we stand,…today!...(in complete, disarray). Amen.

We, worship a living-God,…Who, also,…(“Restores”); what He’s, often-times,…taken-away!...(referring to, our ability to live-forever; as a fine-example)…

Yes, God,…(“Restores”),…because, He-Loves!...

Read-well, Jesus’-own-quoted,…words; (according to, Matthew 10:34,35,36)…

“Do not think, that I, (Jesus-speaking); have come, to bring peace,…to the Earth. I have, (Not),…come; to bring-peace. But, a,…(“Sword”)!”…(verse, 34).

Folks, this,…(“spiritual-symbolism”); refers to, separating and/or,…to cut-asunder,…relationships. Yes, divisions, continue-to-abound,…between; family-and-friends!... Why?...

Answer: Because, even within our very own,…household-of-faith; we’ve created, countless,…(“Denominations”)!... Taking this word, by its,…(“truest-definition”),…we-realize-that; divided, we’ve,…fallen!...

Tell-me, what,…ever-happened, to:

(“UNITED”,…WE,…STAND,… / …”DIVIDED”,…WE-FALL)?...

Yes, as a people, as a community, as a Nation,…as-an, entire-globe!...

It doesn’t, please me,…(“at-all”),…to admit; these-hard-truths. Take this example, at heart.

We, today,…have the; one-dollar-bill, the five-dollar-bill, the ten-dollar-bill, the twenty-dollar-bill,…the fifty-dollar-bill,…and-the: one-hundred-dollar, bill.

These are termed, as having-and-possessing,…different; monetary-face-values!...

Well, the same is most true,…of the various, (“denominational-groups”); in existence today, within our supposed,…Christian-Communities!...

Are we not, all,…believers; in One-Faith?...

Is, not our living-God,…and His-Son; One,…in-unity, in-Love, in cause-and-vision,…in: mindset-and-mission?...

Why, do we identify ourselves,…first-and-foremost, by these; given titles, naming-ourselves,…(Catholics, Mormons, Pentecostals, Seventh-Day-Adventist, Jehovah’s-Witnesses, Baptist, Amish,…etc...etc...etc…)?...

Should, our first,…identity, not-be; followers of God’s-Son!...

Yes, both,…(“brothers-and-sisters”),…in; one-shared-belief?... And, is our hope,…not the same; that of becoming, eventually,…(although-yet-future): children of the, “Most-High-God?”…(if only, by His-Divine-Adoption)…

Families, have been torn-apart,…because, they-stumble; over the otherwise, (“simplicity-of-Christ’s), own-teachings!...(read, Matthew 10: 35)…

Yes, our,…(“pompous-pride”),…and,…(“stubborn-self-will”); have become, (“humanity’s”),…worst enemy. And, we find ourselves,…warring-against, our own; household-of-Faith!…

This, we find,…right-inside, our homes; and even, inside our very,…(”places-of-worship”)!…

Note-well, this one-truth!...(please-read, Matthew 10:40)…

Whoever, receives Jesus-of-Nazareth, (His-own-gospel-message, and not; other-people’s-opinions, of Who,…Jesus, may-or-may-not: actually be); these very same, are wise enough,…(“to-also”),…receive, He: (meaning, God; Himself)!...

For, it is,…God,…Who-has-sent; His Son, (Jesus)!...

It is, God’s-own-directive,…that, Salvation; be offered-freely, to whom,…so-ever-believes: in the Son’s-Message!...

This, is God’s,…truest-desire. That, we listen-well,…to what, His-Son; has to say!... Why?...

Answer: Because, it’s-all-about,…the, (“Father’s-Kingdom”)!... It’s still-at-hand, most readily available,…for your, grasping, (dear-reader and friends).

Yes, completely,…Free!... For-whom, so-ever-wills!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“TELL-ME,…WHO-DOES,…THE-ORDAINING?”…

Friends, as we continue, (together), to study-well and with much diligence,…our, Holy-Scriptures; please note-the-following!...(read, Philippians 3:20).

Here, our Apostle-Paul,…speaks-about, our,…(“Citizenship”); being in,Heaven!...

Was Paul, not-known, himself,…as being, a Roman-Citizen?... Although, born-a-Hebrew,…and well-learned; in the Law-of-Moses, as a Pharisee!...

Paul, was from a place called,…(“Tarsus”)!...

He, did not reside-permanently in,…Rome. Although, (ironically-enough), he-ends-up,…there, to be ultimately; judged by,…”Caesar!”…

This,…(“citizenry-of-Paul”); gave him the authority, to persecute this,…(“early-established-church”),…supposedly-practicing, what the Jews-believed,…to be, blasphemy: against,…Almighty-God!...

I’m sure, Paul,…was, well-able; to travel so extensively, because of this,…registered: (“Roman-Citizenship”)!...

*(if I’m not mistaken, this place called,…”Tarsus”; is geographically located, in the coast-lines, of the modern-day,…country-of: “Portugal”)*…

A place, known for its,…(“fine-ship-builders”)!...

Looking back, into human-history,…our, (“Christopher-Columbus”),…(although-of-Italian-descent); was funded-monetarily, by the King-and-Queen,…of Spain: when he ventured, into the,…vast-unknown!...(exploring the West, beyond-the-horizons).

And, perhaps the three-well-known,…vessels, used; (The Nina, The Pinta, and the Santa-Maria), on this historic-pilgrimage, (ultimately-discovering, the shores,…of; St. Augustine, Florida); was done so, using ships build,…still: by these, great-ship-builders!...

*Yes,…(generations-after-generations, of skilled,…”workmanship”)*...

Getting back, to my point-in-case:

I ask you, (dear-reader and friends); are there not, even today,…many: (“American-Citizens”)?... Who, themselves are not born, (actually),…in, America; but-rather, have been registered,…or: (“Naturalized”)!...

Yes, good-old,…U.S.,…of,…A: our nation, (“Naturalizes,…millions,…of-legal-immigrants”). This occurs, after a legal process,…of becoming-first; a permanent-resident, (by living in this nation, for at least,…two-years; first).

There-after, these very same individuals, (who have migrated, under-the-set-forth,…”standards-and-laws”; of our nation); have the right, to make their residence,…more-permanent: by becoming, a legal:

(“Citizen,…of-the,…United-States”)!...

This process, is termed as,…being: (“Naturalized”)!...

I’m sure, this pertains to our own,…Apostle-Paul; he was also, (“Naturalized”), as a,…(“Roman-Citizen”)!... Although, originally-born a,…Hebrew.

So, this-in-essence,…is a, (“Sworn-Allegiance”)!...

Paul, as a Roman-Citizen,…had a,…(“Sworn-Allegiance”),…to the, Roman-State!... (and/or, governmental-body).

It would explain, quite-well,…how, Paul; readily persecuted, “Christians”,…(with authority-and-letter), given by-both; his,…Pharisee-colleagues, as well,…the: Roman-Government!...

By comparison, we, (Jesus’-Faithful-Followers); also hold a,…(“Sworn-Allegiance”)!...

Mainly, to the very,…Son-of-God!...(Jesus-of-Nazareth). Yes, as we,…(“freely-subject ourselves”),…to our, Messiah; as His, Father-in-Heaven,…has, ordained us: to-do.

Yes, regardless of being a Jew,…or a Gentile. Despite, our age, color, race-or-place,…of-origin; we are those, who hold our,…(“Citizenship-in-Heaven”)!...

Our,…(“Allegiance”),…is to; Jesus-the-Christ!...

As, is the Son’s-own-Allegiance,…exercised-towards; His-own-God, and Father-in-Heaven!...(Jehovah, His-Mighty-Name).

This we believe, because our doctrine, is one,…that-hopes-in; the return of Jesus, Who,…shall-descend: from Heaven, itself!...

Yet, the,…(“Religionist”),…have, misinterpreted-and-misunderstood; the spiritual-symbolism, behind this truth!...(please-read, Philippians 3:20).

It’s why, many are misled to believe that,…Heaven, is where-we-go; upon our Death!... Not true, at all.

For, only,…one-man, (Jesus-of-Nazareth); has-both, descended-and-ascended,…to Heaven!... This is, most,…Biblically-True!...

As, for the Dead,…they, know; nothing-at-all. That’s-right!... The Dead, await a,…(“Resurrection”)!...

Those, who-are-alive,…during the return, of Jesus, (His-Second-Advent); shall be, instantly-transformed,…into, an incorruptible: state-of-existence!...

Just like, when Jesus,…(“Transfigured-Himself”); in the very presence, of Peter, James and John!... On that Mountain, in that,…(“Day-and-Hour”),…of, God’s-own; choosing!...

This act, was to be,…a, (“type”); of what we, humans,…shall-also: undergo!...

Yes,…(“Restored-and-Transformed”),…into-spiritual-bodies!... We shall be, as Jesus,…today, stands; (“In-the-Spirit”)!...

Such, is the very,…(“Power-of-God”),…to do, these-things; and more.

Those, who-are-alive,…during this, marvelous event, (the second-advent); in an instance, yes,…in a,…(”Twinkling-of-an-eye”): shall be, changed from a,…(“flesh-and-blood”),…existence!... Why?...

Answer: Because, (“flesh-and-blood”),…cannot-ever, enter; into this, Kingdom-of-God!...

Yes, that fast,…that-quickly!... All done, in a,…(“blink-of-an-eye”)!...

It’s why, our, (“Bible’s-Message”),…advices-that, we remain; constantly, at-the-ready. For, the Son-of-God,…returns,…like,…(“A-Thief,…in-the,…Night”)!...

Yes, most,…(“unexpectedly”),…so!...

It’s how, His,…”Father-in-Heaven”,…always-work, at-and-on; His own scheduling. And, never upon,…our-own!... God, to prove His Authority over us,…humans; purposely-defies, all of our logical-reasoning,…and, tests-our-faith: right-up, until the very last,…moment!... Amen.

For those of you, (who-believe); know that, typically,…right-when, we’re ready to, “throw-in-the-towel”,…(sort-to-speak): is when, God,…comes-thru, for us!...(His chosen-and-destined)… Amen.

Just ask, the Hebrews,…who lived, the experience; at the Red-Sea!...

Salvation, occurs when we,…surrender-our-will; only-then, will God,…perform: His wonders-and-works!... Amen.

And, so,…yes, we hold,…a,…(“Citizenry”); that is, of Heaven!... Why?...

Because, we speak-and-believe,…in those, many; (“powers-and-principalities”), which occupy very,…high-heavenly-places!...

But, rest-assured,…that, our eternal-home; will be, right-down-here. Yes, on the,…(“New-Earth”)!... As, promised.

“Thy-Kingdom-come, Thy-Will,…be done. On Earth, as it is,…in; Heaven!”… Amen.

Never forget, that the,…(“True-Power”),…which enables, (“all-things”); to come into, (“Subjection”), to the Son-of-God,…comes, from: none-other-than, God,…alone!...

Yes,…(“all-things”),…have been made,…(“Subject-to-the-Son”)!...

Except, the Father,…Himself!... He’s,…(“exempt”),…from, this Rule!... Why?...

Answer: Because, it is God,…Who, has-done; all the ordaining, of such,…(“Subjecting”)!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“TO-YOU,…GIVERS-AND-TAKERS!”…

Friends, note-well,…how, our Apostle-Paul; is most certain, that his,…(“fellow-workers”): are named, in this,…”Book-of-Life!”…

Could this, possibly be another,…hidden-truth?...(yes, hidden-manna).

That, all those, who devote themselves, (men and women, alike), to the act-of-spreading,…this gospel-message, (as originally-shared, by the Son-of-God); are actually-sealed?...

And, not just, merely-counted,…but-also, (“numbered”); within the written-pages, of this,…”Book-of-Life!”…

Oh’, how I pray,…so!... Amen. (please-read, Philippians 4:3).

Let’s remember, that our professed-faith,…goes beyond; answering an altar-call, on any given,…Sunday. Yes, it goes beyond,…publicly-confessing; Christ-Jesus, as your personal,…”Lord-and-Saviour!”…

Folks, (“simple-lip-service”),…doesn’t, get us; into this, “Kingdom-of-God!”…

If we are asked, to follow, (“Jesus’-own-footsteps”),…then, remember; His sacrifices, done in your behalf. And, today,…I ask you, (dear-reader and friends); where are yours?...

Where, is your good-and-faithful,…service; unto our appointed, King?...(Jesus-of-Nazareth).

Don’t ever forget, that,…(“faith-without-works”),…is completely-dead; in its own, tracks!... With that said, may your,…(“good-works”); in the very end, out-weigh all, of your previous,…vain-glories: and ill-gotten-gains!...

Yes, make your requests,…directly-to-God!... By, in-and-thru,…His-Son; our, Jesus-the-Christ!... For, the Son,…still, intercedes; unto our Heavenly-Father, in our behalf. Why?...

Simply, because we often-times,…don’t know, how; nor-for-what, to pray,…as-we-ought!...

Let us, plead unto our Creator,…for, His-own; inner-Peace!... For, this is what truly,…guards, both; our hearts-and-minds, against these over-powering,…forces-of-evil.

I speak, of the same,…Peace; which the Father, shares with His-Son!...(Who, has returned, to be at: His-Father’s side)…(read, Philippians 4:6-7).

Until, the Son-of-God,…returns to us, (at a Day-and-Hour, of God’s-own, reckoning); let us, keep our minds occupied,…with these-things, considered: honorable, just-and-pure.

Yes, stay-focused, (especially, during your own, moments; of greatest, testing-and-trials), on all that, is truly,…worthy: of praising!...(verse, 8).

May we, all,…continue-to-practice; what we, (Jesus’-Faithful-Followers), have learned-and-received,…from: our Holy-Scriptures!...

It’s when we, practice what we,…preach; that-thereafter, we can expect to receive,…this: (“PEACE,…OF,…GOD”)!... (verse, 9).

Yes, we-are-those,…who; have also-learned, to be most,…(“content”): in whatever circumstance, and/or situation we find,…ourselves!...(verses, 11-12)

To you, pastors, preachers-and-priests,…read-well, (Philippians 4:17).

Don’t be seeking, the monetary-gifts,…from us, your (“flock”); so-much-as, (“seek-the-fruit”), that increases,…to the credit: of those, who are the,…(“GIVERS”)!...

Yes, the,…(“GIVERS”),…are Blessed-and-Increased; by their generosity!....

Versus, the,…(“TAKERS”),…who-typically; are never really, satiated. That’s-right, this very act of,…receiving; has been, (“exploited”), extremely-so!...

Remember, that God,…gives; (“all-the-increase”)!...

This is why, it is better,…(“To give, than to receive”)!... Why?...

Answer: The, (“GIVERS”), are abundantly-blessed, in their,…(“favoring-with-God”)!...

Yes, God’s-Favor, (although, He is known; not to be, a respecter of persons),…increases, not just physically; but-most-importantly, spiritually-speaking!...(read, Philippians 4:17).

Note-well, in (verse, 20); that our Apostle-Paul, always gives the total,…Glory-to-God!...(as does, the Son; in all that Jesus, does-and-says)…

And, in (verse, 23); Paul, pleads for the,…”Grace-of-Christ”: to be with us, (who-believe).

Again, Paul speaks-about,...two-separate-entities!... The Son, has been bestowed this, (“Authority”),…to exercise; His-Father’s-Grace!...

And, this is, to the complete benefit,…of our own,…spirit!...

Friends, the,…(“spirit”); is recognized to be, the,…(“intellect”): of each individual, person. Whereas, the,…(“soul”); refers to our, life-source/power-source,…if-you-will.

Yes, the,…(“Breath-of-Life”); was originally-blown, into Adams’ own nostrils,…and, he became: (“A-Living-Soul”)…

Once, this soul, (or power-source); is removed, our fleshly-bodies,…stop-existing: and we ultimately, die!...

It is, the,…(“spirit of man, and/or woman”),…which-returns-back; to the Father, from whence-we-came,…upon, our Death: or expiration of our, flesh-and-blood,…existence!...

It’s why, our Apostle-Paul,…teaches us, that: “To be absent, from our bodies. Is to be, present with our Creator!”…

We shall, return,…(upon our Resurrection); our spirit, everything you once recognized to identify your person,…your characteristics, your personality; your demeanor, your attitude,…all-of-it: shall be, (“restored”)!...

This time, around,…though; we are promised, an,…(“incorruptible-existence”)!...

That’s-right!... No longer, (“flesh-and-blood”)!... No longer, remaining in a,…(“fallen-state-of-affairs”)!... No longer, liable to,…Death!... We, shall stand,…as our Jesus, stands-today!... In the Spirit!... A transfiguration, and/or transformation,…a metamorphosis; much likened to how, a caterpillar turns-into,…a: beautiful-butterfly!...

Much, like an unborn-child,…after existing; submerged in, (“synovial-fluid”), for nine-months in its mother’s-womb,…is-brought-forth: into another, existence. This newborn child, begins to breath!...

Whereas, prior to its birth, its entering-into,…our natural-realm,…it was sustained; completely submerged, in synovial-fluids,…yet: never-once-drowned!...

Yes, marvelous and wonderful,…metamorphosis!...

Immeasurable, unfathomable and most,…unconfined!...

As minute, as the known,…(“Amebae”)!... Yet, as vast-and-unknown,…as our, entire: Universe!... Amen.

Such, are the endless creations of,…our, living-God!... (Jehovah, His-Glorious-Name)!..

Your Friend,
Izzy!...
