“DENIAL,…DISTORTS,…TRUTH!”…

Friends, what our Bible presents to each-reader,…is truly, a challenge; to our very-own, (“intellect”)!... Which is to say, the very-spirit of,…mankind!...

That’s-right!... Our Holy-Scriptures, offer a spiritual-process, which explores,…(“applied principles”),…as viewed; from, God’s-own-perspectives!...

Tell me, dear-reader and friends:

“Who-of-us, hasn’t felt,…(incomplete),…at one-point, or another; throughout our entire, life-span?”...

Yes, like anything else,…we must, be willing; to labor, in birthing,…this Faith: of ours!...

“Thank-you, God!”… I am so, grateful…

We, find a powerful-team, of both,…men-and-women, who are; our truest-source, of constant,…strength: and-spiritual-support!...

Yes, loving,…(“brothers-and-sisters”); who encourage us, (“Jesus’-Faithful-Followers”),…to: keep-at-it!...

We’ve been appointed, a constant-guardian,…(“The-Holy-Spirit”)!...

Who, honors our process, and never-doubts,…that, we-will-eventually; be restored-and-transformed. So, let,…all-of-us,…due, our homework; and turn-it, in!...

*(meaning, our surrendering-and-yielding, of our own; personal-will)*.

Come, and,…(“step-out”),…in Faith, with me!...

Together, we shall make this journey,…worth-while!...

(“JUST,…REMAIN,…OPEN”)!...

Find yourself, (sooner-than-later), crying,…a-thousand-tears. As we, (by-in-and-thru, the Son), open-up,…our, over-whelming-pride; relinquishing our childish-ways, and in earnest,…just: pray!...

You will find yourself, basking in,…God’s-Glory!...

As, newborn,…(“sons-and-daughters”),…adopted, and grinning; from ear-to-ear. We will, laugh-forever-more,…till-our-sides,…ache!...

Oh’, God,…make-it-so!...

Folks, privately-and-intimately,…(“just-open-up”)!... Revelations-and-resolutions, will be poured-out,…unto, you!...

No-more, battles,…to-be-fought. No-more, wars,…to-be-lost. No-more, memories of,…doubts,…betrayal, vengeance,…nor, of-any; missed-Love!...

No, sir!... Trust, in this,…Faithful-God!...(Jehovah, His-Majestic-Name).

And, there-after,…find yourself, no-more; denying your hidden, skeletons-of-old. Surrender your will, to His-Son!...(Jesus-the-Nazarene).

And, with your spirit,…wide-open, sit-down; and tell the Son, that you,…Love-Him: so!... Amen.

Many of you, believe yourselves, to have it,…all; figured-out. Your working, in your,…(“dream-career-field”)!... You have a decent-home, and a solid-relationship, with your,…(“significant-other”)!...

Trust me, on this,…one-thing!...

One morning, you’ll wake-up,…miserable. With, nothing in particular,…happening. When, in all,…actuality; there is, something happening!...

You, decided, to-tell-yourself,…the Truth!...

Deep-Inside, within the inner-most-parts,…of your, heart-and-mind; you find yourself, filled-with-afflictions. Although, outwardly,…you, seemingly-appear; to be, in total control…

*(as other people, are viewing you,…with, their-own; inner-thoughts)!...

Yet, your daily-motions,…tell-you, differently!...

Feelings of misery, confusion and despair,…begin to grow; almost like, (“black-mold”), or some-sort of,…annoying-fungus, has lodged-itself: inside, your,…every-moment!...

Your thinking, becomes,…Fuzzy!...

You, find yourself,…snapping-at-people, even becoming; professionally-aggressive and competitive, to the point of,…being: combative!...

Each day, you push yourself,…to, exhaustion. Thinking, all-the-while,…that, by doing this; no-more, of these hard-truths,…can continue: to haunt, your every dream,…as-you-sleep!...

In closing, just know that,…without, Jesus; inside-and-out, of your personal-lives,…(“all-things”): will ultimately, end. Don’t let your mind, keep you in Denial.

Only, what you do for,…Christ,…will-last!...

Yes,….(“DENIAL,…DISTORTS,…TRUTH”)!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“LET’S-MOVE,…TO,…A-BETTER-PLACE!”…

Jesus, Loves us!...

But, He also wants to,…move-us, to a another; better-position, than-that,…which-we: presently occupy!...

Obedience-and-Submission, is all-too-important. Authority is from God!... We can’t circumvent, (or go-around), those whom,…God, has appointed; to us, as our-own,…Authority-Figures!...(such-as-our-parents, for example).

God, uses even the wicked,…including, Satan, (and his, insurgents)!... Yes, his fellow-demons, (unknowingly), serve a higher-purpose,…and Plan!...

Sincerity-and-truth, is the real substance of our,…(“unleavened-bread”). Malice, is a leaven,…which causes; wickedness-to-grow!...

When we remove, this leaven,…only-then; do we find, that-the lump,…is whole: and unadulterated. We’re going to be involved, in a sinful-world.

There’s a problem, when we,…try-to,…(“moralize”),…the present-planet. Just remember, that,…it-is-God,…Who, Judges; the rest of the, unbelieving world!...

We, (Jesus’-Faithful-Followers), can’t really change it. Although, we can impress-upon-it,…Christ’s-Love!...

It’s the very same, Love,…which the Father; has all-along, shared with His only,…begotten: Son!... A Love, which,…(“restores-and-transforms”),…all-lives!...

Don’t let sin, run-rampant among us,…the-brethren, in Faith!... Otherwise, we become no different than,…the rest, of this world!...

Yes, the world shall know us,…for-who, we are; and mainly, because of this demonstrated,…Love: for one-another, (referring to, the household-of-Faith)!...

Pray-about, this subject-matter. Ask yourself, if you’re the,…(“right-person”),…to address, another believer; and his-or-her,…short-comings.

Only in Love, do we proceed,…in confronting,…members; of our-exercised-faith!...

*(be it, inside-or-out; of our-own, homes: and/or, churches)*…

*(70 x 70)* = 490

This is an example, (with spiritual-symbolism), that refers to,…how many times; we are-asked, to forgive,…(“especially-those”),…who are willing, to recognize, their errors,…and, (“implore”); the afflicted-victims, for their,…forgiveness: at last!...

It also, demonstrates the countless-times,…we-shall, fall-short; of our well-intended-goals!... For, such, is the weakness,…of our,…(“flesh-and-blood”),…existence.

Yes, the spirit, is most-willing,…but, it is; the flesh, which comes,…short, each and every: time!... Amen.

It’s because, our Love,…is much-greater, than any of our,…specific-differences; that we come, to this place,…of: endless-forgiving!...

Again, conditional upon the realizing,…that,…we have, sinned; against our brethren, and (“implore”),…for-forgiveness!...

*(True-Repentance, is implied. A real change, of both the,…heart-and-mind; implied, here)*…

Yes, we,…like-our-Jesus; also dare, to Love!... But, with a deeper-and-more-intimate,…purpose!... One of, moving those,…whom-we-Love; to this, better-place.

A place of,…(“Obedience-and-Sincerity”)!...

Let’s guard-ourselves, from becoming those,…who-only,…seek; to call-out and identify, only the faults,…of: others. There’s a fine-line, between,…wanting to highlight,…(“short-comings”),…and-wanting-only; to find faults, in others!...

We aren’t those, who just want to see,…(“punished”),…all-wrong-doers!... We, want also,…to partake, in becoming; part of the solution, in all given,…circumstance: and/or, situation!...

It’s only, when we Love enough,…and, care-enough; to confront, in Love, (especially, our other; brethren-in-faith), with regard to their own,…ill-conduct and demeanor; that-we, begin to bring,…into, the light-of-truth: Jesus’-Love!...(the very same, Love; which the Father, shows His-Son).

A Love, which corrects the wrong!... A Love, which chastises, (if necessary), because it,…Loves!... Only then, are we true-imitators,…of both; the Father, and His-Son!... Amen.

Yes, the Son-of-God,…Loves, us-enough; to-(Not),…keep-us: where-we-stand!...

But-rather, He wants to,…(“move-us-forward”),…to; a-new-place. Yes, a better-place of,…”Obedience-in-Truth!”...

Ultimately, to His own,…Father’s-Throne!...

“WELCOME,…HOME!”…

Tell me, dear-reader and friends. Who of us, is of the idea that,…it has been, (“others”); who have fed us, our-own-misery?...

Yes, misery,…loves-company!...

I pray, you not walk,…hand-in-hand; with those who seem, to have lost,…their, sanity. Yes, these very same,…are filled, with distorted; half-truths and full-out-lies!...

Fed to them, by ravenous-dogs. Becoming angry, at their own mothers. Resenting their own fathers and/or, siblings. Wanting to control, everything-and-everybody,…in their, midst; that could, in any way,…hurt them!...

Many, still,…don’t realize, what’s-going-on?...

Yet-others, simply believe that,…they’re having, a string; of bad-luck. As they watch, (first-hand), their personal-lives,…fall-to-pieces. And, so,…these very same; end-up-doing, what any,…(“mindless-person”),…would, do!...

They get, totally-upset-off!...

Some, would call this state-of-mind,…(“temporary-insanity”)!... There’s something, very strange that happens, (“I’ve-noticed”); when people, arrive at this,…state-of-mind.

It seems, to me, (personally), that-others,…who, surround us; help these afflicted, (“stay-there”)!...

There are those, who recognize, your discord,…and, support you; in it. Why?...

Answer: Because, you have told them,…your-story. Yes, these whom you’ve told,…know, why-you; are indeed, upset. And, what do these very same,…in-turn, do?...

Answer: They, get upset,…right-along, with you. Yes, they help us,…(“rant-and-rave”)!...

And, sometimes,…they go, as-far-as; to offer you, a drink,…in-the-process!...

Then, there are those,…who, recognize; your confusion. You’ve told-them, your story,…too!...

And, what do these,…do?...

Answer: They offer you, suggestions. They, tell you what-to-do,…and; what-to-say. And, at the time,…it all; sounds-good. However,…(“confusion-reigns-supreme”)!...

And, yes,….this, (“temporary-insanity”), surfaces!…

And, you retreat,…as-a-result!...

Some of us, are more,…astute!...

Yes, we go,…(as-far-as),…to detect, an even-greater; vulnerability,…called: Fear!...

That, for some reason,…we’re not, willing; to either explore, nor move-away,…from!...

More importantly, (“we-are-those”),…who-recognize; that, beneath,…(“all-the-bravado”),…there exist, a real-need; for us,…all: to grow!...

Yes, a need for,…(“true-change. Of both, our; hearts-and-minds”)!...

I pray, that: “You, remove yourself, from this,…sort-of-spiritual, (twilight-zone); where nothing, makes any sense!”… Amen.

Instead, come to this place,…(the very-foot, of God’s-Throne); where everything, makes-perfect-sense. Yes!...

It’s a journey, which requires that,…(“we-possess”),…a boldness-of-heart; real, strength-of-mind,…and, much-power: from, the Spirit!...

In this place, where,…(“silence-reigns”),…this, (“Spirit”),…whispers, the following-words:

(“REMAIN,…OPEN”)!...

There’s something, bigger-than you know. Yes, bigger than,…all-of-us; put, together. Just beyond the horizon, and around the next-bend,…on; this, long-and-winding,…path, we call: Life!… Stands, our,…Jesus!...

With,…(“Arms-Wide-Open”),…saying: (“WELCOME,…HOME”)!... Amen.

“TELL-ME,…WHO-WALKS,…BESIDE-YOU?”…

Friends, if you know,…(“WHO-WALKS,…BESIDE-YOU”),…then-there’s, no need; to ever be, afraid!... Amen.

Many of us, have thought,…all-throughout, our various; stages-in-life,…that-things, will get: better. Only, to find-out,…they, only; fell-apart: again!...

Yes, we’ve changed-careers. We’ve changed, our partners. We’ve even cut, and/or dyed-our-hair,…even-lost, well-over; thirty, (30), pounds!...

Things, seem to have,…gotten-better, (so-we-thought); and then-they, fell apart,…once: again. But, in this lengthy-process,…something-wonderful; has happened!...

Yes, we’ve picked-up, certain abilities,…(“habits-and-practices”),…which have, led us; to the realization, that-things,…(never really),…fall-apart. No, sir!...

They, just-simply,…change!...

It’s like, the hamster,…on that, proverbial-wheel. Round-and-round, he goes. When, he’ll stop,…only, God; truly-knows!...

Always, pushing himself. Striving to do, more. Yes, to be,…better; and to get-ahead. Unfortunately, it is still,…not-enough!...

Folks, the,…(“insanity”),…which plagues, the adult-population, (world-wide); is a kind, that makes fully-capable,…and able-bodied-people; stay on jobs, in which they,…are-most-miserable!...

Yes, these,…(“insane-people”),…stay-in-relationships; where they cheat, and/or are cheated,…upon. They are abused, neglected, demeaned,…over-looked, and even; de-humanized!...

It’s an, (“insanity”),…which, makes-you-forget: (“WHO-WALKS,…BESIDE-YOU”)?...

And, (“Who”), lives,…within-you. And, as a result,…of this, memory-loss; you tend to, shut-down,…your own,…spirit!...

So, what-then,…is our, reward?... What, should we seek-first,…instead?...

Answer: “The,…Kingdom,…God!”…

And, that we, (Jesus’-Faithful-Followers), may present this gospel,…(“Free-of-Charge”)!...

Yes, we are those,…who-sow, spiritual-things; among many others. We also, plow-and-thresh,…in hopes, of sharing; in the crop!....(read, 1 st. Corinthians 9: 10, 11, 12, 16)…

Never-the-less, we,…like our, Apostle-Paul; have not made, use of this right. But, we endure,…(“anything”),…rather-than, put an obstacle; in the way, (which may, obstruct), this gospel-message,…of: God’s-only-Son!...(Jesus-of-Nazareth).

Yes, necessity is,…indeed, laid-upon us, (daily)!...

But, despite this truth,…we are those, who-have; made ourselves, (“servants-to-all”). That, we might win,…more-of-you, (note-well, I don’t say: all-of-you); over to Jesus!...(verse, 19).

Here’s why, the Son-of-God,…came down, to Earth!... Sent down, by His own God,…and,…Father-in-Heaven!...(Jehovah, His-Eternal-Name)…read-well, (verse, 22).

We, like our Apostle-Paul,…have become,…(“all-things”); to all people, that by,…(“all-means”),…we, (“Might”): assist in, saving-some!… Amen.

Yes,…(“Might”)!... We, just,…(“Might”)!... Assist, our Lord, (Jesus),…with,…the-ushering-in; of others,…into: “Jesus’-Saving-Sheepfold!”…

A holding-place/staging-area, (if-you-will). Prior, to finally entering,…into; “His-Father’s-Kingdom!”...

This, specific,…(“space-in-time”),…is termed: (“The,…Millennial,…Era”)!...

We, like,…Paul; do it all, for the sake,…of-the,…Son’s-own-Message!...(verse, 23).

So, remember,…God’s-Son!... For, He,…is: (“WHO-WALKS,…BESIDE-YOU”)!...

Why?...

Answer: So-that, you,…too; may-share, ultimately,…in: the Son’s-own-eternal, inheritance. Yes, unspeakable-riches await those,…who, endure; (“all-things”)!...

Till, the very end!… Amen.

Which, in reality,…is-only; the true-beginnings, of something,…bigger: than, all-of-us,…put, together!...

“OWN-THE-STRENGTH,…TO,…SURVIVE!”…

Friends, beware of your surroundings,…because, many, (perhaps-including-yourself); may be showing-signs, of confusion!...

Although, outwardly,…you tend, to radiate; an attitude, that,…(“everything’s-just-fine”)!...

All-the-while, there may indeed,…be, something; most-malignant, beneath-the skin. Yes, something’s eating-away, at millions of people,…out-there; as each day, becomes a task,…of-much,…drudgery!...

The people in your immediate, environment,…become, crutches-and-victims. Or, perceived-oppressors!...

Folks, don’t allow,…Satan,…to cloud, your mind. Otherwise, he’ll take-over,…your very-own, spirit!...

Because, this,…(“Dark-One”),…only-aims, to destroy; your-present-existence. Why?...

Answer: Satan, not only knows-that,…he-has; but a little-time, left to run,…free. This, Evil-One,…also, despises the fact; that we, (humans), have been promised,…ultimately; an eternal-positioning, that places us,…even-higher-than: the very, Angels-in-Heaven!... Amen.

How, can this be so?...

Answer: If we are to become, (“joint-heirs”), with the Son-of-God; and Jesus, is already,…(“exalted”); overseeing many powers-and-principalities, in high-heavenly-places,…than-this: places us, (by His Father’s-exercised-Grace), right alongside the Son,…also, reigning-and-ruling!...

Yes, ordained, (celestially, by the Father-of-Lights)!...

For, such is the magnitude of God’s-Love,…shed-unto, the whole; of this portion of creation, called,…(“Mankind”)!...

Let us, remember that,…we are, more-than; (“Conquerors-in-Christ”)!... Amen.

From day-one, it has been,…my-personal-hope,…to offer, you, (dear-reader and friends); my support-and-guidance, spiritually-speaking!...

We, will overcome all, (“challenges-and-obstacles”),…declaring-ourselves, in the end,…as: (“Survivors”)!...

Yes, life-itself,…may, sometimes-seem; to burden you, with more than you,…can-or-want: to bear!...

It’s not, so-much-that,…we, cannot; handle it. It’s more-so, that we usually,…don’t-know, (“How”); to handle our, immediate circumstances,…and/or: specific-situations!...

Our Bible, equips us,…with the; necessary, tools!...

Its, (“wisdom-and-knowledge”), meets our many,…(“tasks-at-hand”)!... What lies-ahead, for you, (who-believe), is a therapeutic,…spiritual-approach!...

My devotion, deals with,…wanting-to-equip, you,…effectively; so-that, you stay well-grounded,…in the knowledge of,…Almighty-God!...(Jehovah, and/or Yahweh: if-you-prefer).

Don’t allow, your, (“life’s-ill-experiences”),…to cause, you-to-forget; the Faithfulness, of our,…Creator!...

We all, need-to-go, through,…our-own, (“Wilderness”)!... Yes, forty-days and forty-nights!... Honoring, most,…the very-things; we’ve been taught, by this,…Son-of-God!...(Jesus-of-Nazareth).

And, of how,…Jesus, defeated; Satan’s-own-Temptations!... Amen.

This, should be,…one-of-our,…(“primary-focal-points”),…in drawing; Jesus’-own-Strength, to,…”Survive-all-things!”...

Jesus, shows us, (by, His-own-endeavors), how to step-into,…personal-growth; and this, spiritual-strength!... Thru, earnest and incessant,…intimate-and-private,…praying; unto our, Heavenly-Father!...

And, done so,…in, solitude. Not, to be ever confused,…with, (“isolation”)!...

Jesus, sought-after,…(“solitude-time”),…with, His Father!... It refreshed Him, it embolden Jesus, it fed Him,…the necessary-strength; to overcome, all-things!...

Yes, even the Son,…is-as, (“nothing”),…without-the-Father, in-and-out,…of: Jesus’-own, personal-life!... Amen.

Let’s not-try, to always be,…(“figuring-everything-out”). It’s not possible, (humanly), and you,…only-fool-yourself,…to think-that; you’ve got the contents, of our Bible,…down-packed, and perfectly-confined: within your own,…(“Pandora’s-Box”)!...(of-buried-treasures).

Somethings, are simply,…best, left-alone!...

There shall come, a time-and-place,…for, (“all-things”); to ultimately-culminate, in,…”God’s-Good-Time!”...

God’s, in charge!... Not, us!...

This realization, is our, very-first-step,…in-yielding, and/or surrendering; (“all-things”),…to: our living-God!...

New thoughts, new findings, begin to pour-out,…and into; our-very, hearts-and-minds,…abundantly,…so: once-we, turn-it-over,…to God!...

In, Jesus’-Name!... Amen.

“HOW-CAN-WE,…FORGIVE?”…

Friends, what’s known as the,…(“LORD’S,…PRAYER”),…is a fine-example; of an affirmative-prayer!...

Offered to us, (Jesus’-Faithful-Followers), to assist us, (who-believe); in incorporating our Bible’s-Principles, into,…”our-own-consciousness!”...

Yes, although meant to be an example, (and not-something, which mankind, has turned-into; just another, ritual), it does alert, our hearts-and-minds,…as to what, we can expect; to experience throughout, our personal-lives!...

“Our Father, Who art in Heaven!”…

“Hallowed, be Your-Name!”…(of Jehovah, and/or Yahweh: if-you-prefer).

“Give us, (who-believe),…(THIS-DAY): our-daily-bread!”…

Note-well, that we are to be fed, (both physically-and-spiritually); on a daily-basis!...

“Lead us, (Not), into temptation!”…

Folks, God,…tests, the hearts-and-will; of all peoples. But, it’s the Devil,…himself, who truly; does, all-the-tempting!...

“Forgive our trespasses. As we, forgive those who have,…transgressed-against-us!”…

One-key-note, here. Forgiveness, must-be,…*(“implored”)*,…of God!...

Many, believe that,…the, (“act-of-forgiving”),…is about, themselves; having-this-power.

Not, so!... Why?...

Answer: Because, although you-yourself, have indeed,…forgiven, the transgressor; this individual, (male-or-female, alike), has not-asked-you,…to forgive, them!...

And, so,…you’re only, feeding,…and/or, satisfying,…(“self”)!...

Unknowingly, you’re only, (“satiating”),…your-own, selfish-need; to move-on, from this wrong,…done-to-you!...

Whereas, until, (the transgressor actually, pleads for this forgiveness); true-forgiveness, (per God’s-own-standards): has not been, really-achieved!...

Yes, we must forgive,…in order, to be forgiven. But, nobody,…(“talks-enough-about”),…the fact-that; it must be,…(“implored”)!...

Example-given: “Father, forgive them,…for they, know-not; what they do!”…

This was Jesus’-own, last words,…upon that, horrendous,…(“Roman-Torture-Stake”)!...

The Son, implored,…the Father!... And, the Father,…thereafter, forgave; the, (“whole-of-humanity”)!...

Continuing onward, with the,…(“LORD’S,…PRAYER”)!...

“Deliver us, from evil. For the Glory, the Kingdom and the Power,…is Yours, (Jesus-speaking, about His Father’s-Kingdom): forever-and-ever,…amen!”…

Who, delivers us,…from; all-evil?...

Answer: The Father, does!...

All things, are ultimately done,…for, Whose-Glory?...

Answer: The Father’s-Glory!...

And, whose Kingdom,…is-it?...

Answer: The Father’s-Kingdom!...

Who, possesses,…all-Power?...

Answer: The Father, possesses all-Power!... Amen.

Was Jesus, setting an example,…for us, to pray; unto Him?...

Answer: No, sir!...

He, was leading, His own,…(“chosen-and-destined”),…to recognize, (“humility”); when we approach, His own God,…and: Father-in-Heaven!...(Jehovah, His-Majestic-Name).

Case-in-point, regarding the act-of-forgiving. The afflicted, is asked to forgive,…(70 x 70 = 490 times),…if necessary. But, only after,…the transgressor,…pleads, (“implores”); and truly recognizes, his-or-her own,…short-comings!...

Only, after the transgressor,…realizes, these-wrong-doings; towards the, (“afflicted-individual”)…

Why?...

Because, to simply live, your life,…forgiving, everyone-and-everything; that has, ever-wrong-you,…(“without, the other party’s,…involvement”): results only, in,…vain-glories!...

The transgressor, must come to recognize,…his-or-her own,…errors!...

And thereafter, (“Repent”), of them,…by exercising, this-act-of,…(“imploring”). Only-then, can we truly expect,…a real-change, of both; the heart-and-mind, of the,…transgressor!... Amen.

Dear-reader and friends, remember that,…our, Bible’s entire-principle,…is, not-based,…on: (“Self”)!...

But, rather,…on striving, to live,…(“a selfless, and-humble-existence”)!...

This, demonstrates ultimately,…a-total-dependence; upon, our Creator,…of: (“all-things”)!...

We, possess no real-power,…of our-own, to forgive, (as God, forgives)!...

We can’t, (“save”),…anyone; by our-forgiving-them. God, can!...

In reality, you’re only,…going-thru-the,…(“motions”),…to enable, your-own-pain; to somehow, subside!...

When all-ends-meet, true-forgiveness,…(“comes”); from the,…Father!...

Note-well, that forgiveness, comes also,…at-a-lofty, price. Jesus, shed,…”His-Blameless-Blood!”…

For our reconciliation, (with God), to become,…possible.

Now, I ask you: “What price, will our present-day, (transgressors),…pay-upon-imploring; for their, forgiveness?...

It’s so easy, to just exercise,…(“lip-service”)!...

Friends, for a true-and-effective,…forgiveness, to take-place; certain conditions, need to be,…met. The Son-of-God, proved this truth,…to us!...

He, gave,…(“His-All”),…in our, stead!...

Not, so-that-we,…can now, just utter; the phrase,…(“In,…Jesus’,…Name”)!...

And, all,…will-be-well,…again. No, sir!...

(“True-Repentance”), is the realization, that-we,…have, wronged-someone. In some fashion, form-or-shape. And, by asking, (or imploring), the afflicted-individual,…to forgive us; this act-in-itself, demonstrates an, (“awareness”),…which, shouts: we need-to-change!...

Yes, a follow-thru,…inwardly, must occur, (referring to the transgressor, specifically): for the forgiving, to be,…”validated-and-authenticated!”... Amen.

P.S. We are all, (“wretched-sinners”), we have all,…hurt someone,…in some way; or another. Knowingly-or-unknowingly, by our own,…actions.

We must all, (“ask-first”),…to be, forgiven. Only, then,…can we, in earnest: receive-forgiveness!...

I speak-about, a forgiveness, of real-lasting-value,…and, true-worth!...

Otherwise, it remains a, (“one-way-street”),….where, our selfish-pride; has once-again, deceived us!...

In the Old-Testament, our Bible clearly states, that,…we-are-to, reconcile ourselves, (with others, first); prior to ever, attempting to approach,…Almighty-God, with any efforts; of cleansing ourselves, our circumstances,…and/or,…our-own-standing: with our Maker!... Amen.

Friends, there are indeed many lessons-in-life,…we must, (“grow-through”)!...

Practicing, spiritual-disciplines,…don’t necessarily, immunize us; from otherwise having to still, learn-and-understand our present,…world!...

As for our Bible, we have to integrate the information,…offered to us; within its written-pages. With the time-and-patience of, (“Job”), we begin to realize that,…one-principle, becomes reliant; upon another, until this bound-book, (our Bible), meshes-together,…for our: understanding!...

Folks, ours is a belief which has taught us,…to: (“HONOR-OUR-INHERENT,…GODLINESS”)!...

Yes, our Bible is nothing-short of a cohesive,…workable, foundation-of-truthful; thoughts!... This developed foundation, will give us the necessary strengths,…to, (“work-through”), these new-experiences; of daring to become, a true-believer!...

Be loyal, to your studies. Examine-well, all-things!...

Find yourself, erecting an inner-courage that faces,…the, (“out-working”), of old-ways. Yes, your very thought-process,…is key, here!...

It’s what our biggest-adversary, (Satan, himself), seeks to deceive-and-destroy!...

Dear, Father-in-Heaven: “Jehovah, Your-Glorious-Name. Speak into my spirit, today. Work-Your-Ways, into my very own,…thought-patterns. Help me, with all of my deeds. I am Yours, use me,…forever-more!”… Amen.

Folks, many of you,…have-simply-reduced, that; God is not happy, with you. And, that-this is quite fine,…with you. Because, you’re not-too-thrilled,…about, Him; either.

What, does it mean,…to believe, in God?... What, truly is your perception,…of Him?... Is it, that God,….is everywhere; seeing-everything?... Are you, convinced that,…He, knows-about; your use of, (“four-letter-words”)?...

Is it, true-that we can run,…but, we can’t; really-ever, hide from,…God?...

He, seems to know about our smoking-and-joking. Yes, about our drinking and promiscuous-principles. Do you believe that, God is mad-at-you?... And, have you concluded this,…by-the-evidence; found in your own, ongoing-dramas and crisis,…within: your personal-lives?...

Whatever-your-reasons, do you think that,…God’; is testing-your-beliefs?... Does, the mere-mention of His-Son,…Jesus; paralyze you?...

Do you, go to church,…because, your’re trying; to get on God’s-Good-Side?...

Are you, trying to impress,…Him; by convincing Him, that you truly-trust,…in all, which He: stands, for?... Could it be, that you’re someone who convinces others,…that you, know; what to do, to make God,…Happy?...

Yet, all the while,…deep-inside, (somewhere); you know that, you’re just playing-a-game!...

Yes, you really want to believe in God,…but, in the end; you simply can’t, figure-out what it all means,…to actually: believe?...

Take a big-breath, and exhale!...

You’re not alone. There are a great-deal, of meaningless-religious-practices,…that only, lead us; to much confusion. God, is not only available,…to certain-special-people. Yet, it seems at first-glance, (to most people), that God,…seems to allow, bad-things to happen to,…good-people!...

And, when,…(“bad-people”),…try to be, good; society-seems to, want to only,…continue punishing: those who have, already rehabilitated-themselves. Yes, it’s a lifelong question,…of many: “What does it mean, to really believe in,…God?”…

Trust-this-Truth!...

Answer: It’s about a quiet-knowing, in both your hearts-and-minds!... Part of believing, is accepting that you are a,…part-of-God!... Yes, collectively,…we-are-all; the sum of a whole, God!...

His presence, is within yourself. He, (“indwells”), with us,…(His-Son’s-Faithful-Followers)!...

I pray, that: “You come to realize, that God,…is in the, (“midst”); of us, all. We are all, but,…One!”… Amen.

“I-PRAY-THAT,…THIS-BE-CLEAR!”…

Friends, incessantly,…our Apostle-Paul; distinguishes clearly, that God, (Jehovah, His-Glorious-Name), is indeed,…the Father: of our Lord, Jesus-the-Christ!...(please-read, Colossians 1:3).

Perhaps, redundancy is required for us,…to finally-believe; this plain and simple truth?...

Over the years, I have personally reduced that-the,…(“Trinity-Doctrine”),…is the, greatest-deceptive-work; of the Devil,…himself!...

Yes, this once-known,…(“Angel-of-Light”),…works his, subtle-ways; as a cunning-serpent, yet,…he, is also: (“as-gentle-as”), any given,…dove!...

You see, (dear-reader and friends), complacency has nestled itself,…inside the very, hearts-and-minds; of millions of people. Yes, countless millions,…believe-that,…Jesus; is God, Himself!...

It brings, (“closure”),…to an otherwise; immeasurable, unfathomable and most unconfined,…subject-matter: and Creator, of all-things!...

Mankind, tends to shun-away,…from-that; which we cannot, fully,…”define-or-understand!”...

Hence, humanity,…throughout, (“ages-of-old”),…has, fabricated-fables; satiating this initial, thirst-and-hunger,…for answers!...

Men pleasers, we’ve become!... Instead, of God,…pleasers!...

Know this truth. It pleases, God,…the most; when we yield, to His-Son’s commissioned,…Cause!...

That, of sharing, the Father’s-Message,…about, a promised; Kingdom-to-come!...(yet-future). A Kingdom, not of this,…present-world!...

For, (“flesh-and-blood”), cannot ever,…enter, therein!...

Yes, (“Salvation”),…rests upon, the words-and-deeds; of God’s-only-begotten, (Jesus-the-Nazarene)!... Yes, this is,…(“understanding”),…the Grace-of-God!...(in-truth)…(read, verse 6).

Folks, being filled with the,…knowledge, of God’s-Will,…in all, spiritual-wisdom, and understanding; starts with, believing that,…God: sent-us, His Son!...(Jesus)…(verse, 9).

And, the Son,…always takes, a back-seat, (if-you-will); when comparing Himself, to His own God,…and: Father-in-Heaven!...(please read, carefully: John 14:28).

“The Father is greater-than-I”…(Jesus’-own, quoted words).

Were this statement, and/or public-declaration,…not-to-be, true; then, our Faith,…is indeed: exercised-in-vain. For, it is the,…(“Father’s-Resurrection-Power”),…that, raised; His-Son!...(from among, the Dead).

Jesus, cannot,…and, will not,…partake-in-lies!...

Tell me, dear-reader and friends,…what part, of: “My Father, is greater-than-I”,…do we, (Not),…understand?...

We walk around, calling ourselves,…(“Christians”)!... Yet, all the while,…we also, turn; a blind-eye, to the simplicity,…of: Christ’s-own-teachings…

Just remember, that originally, it was the,…(“pagan-world”),…in a city, called: (“Antioch, Greece”), who first began, using this phrase,…of,…(“Christians”)!...

A supposed-meaning, of which,…the rest, of the world; was already using, to somehow identify the,…(“followers-of-Jesus”)!... Yes, a worldly,…given-title.

Jesus, Himself,…never called, any of His own; (“Christians”)!...

All the contrary, Jesus called, all of His followers,…(“brothers-and-sisters”)!...

I for one, take Jesus’, (“quoted-words”),…verbatim; as being emphatically-and-unequivocally,…true!...

Both, the Father and His Son,…are, two-separate-entities. Each, uniquely-proper, and most deserving,…of their own,…”Honor-and-Glory!”…

Yes, each,…donning, their own; (“Crown-of-Righteousness”)!...

For, there are many types,…of,…(“Glories”)!... This, is most Biblically,…true. But, you can’t confirm, this fact,…unless, you; examine for yourselves, all-things!...

Ask, and you shall receive. Knock, and it shall be opened,…unto,…you. Seek, the Kingdom-of-God,…first-and-foremost, (in all, that you, do); and the truth, shall be given,…unto,…you!... Amen.

It is, through the,…(“Son’s-Teachings”),…that-we, bear; (“good-fruit”)!... And, this fruit is revealed best,…through, the act of; (“good-works”)!...

Yes, our growth-in-knowledge, (with regard, to spiritual-matters), is inherently evident!...(verse, 10).

Always remember-that, it is,…(“The-Father”),…Who, has,…(“Qualified”),…us, (who-believe); to ultimately share, in the Son’s,…earned-inheritance!...(verse, 12).

That’s-right!... Jesus’-shed and atoning-blood, (“justifies”), us,…to be, thereafter,…(“Qualified”); by His own God, and Father-in-Heaven!...

This, (“Qualification-of-sorts”), is what gets us,…into, the promised; eternal-kingdom. Yes, the Son is our appointed,…King; and Jesus’-own-Dominion, is overseen by,…God!...(Yahweh, Creator: of-all-things).

Again, it is God,…doing the transferring; of our, (“Saved-Spirit”)!... A transformation, from,…darkness-to-light!...(verse, 13).

We’re Redeemed, through Jesus’-Blood!... A criteria, which was,…(“set-forth”), by His Father!... For, (“humanity’s-ultimate-forgiveness”), to take place,…there-after.

Yes, conditions,…were present. And, the Son,…fulfilled, them all; according to, the Father’s-own,…pre-requisites!... Again, quite clear,…that, we speak of,…(“two-separate-entities”); here!... Amen.

Jesus, (like-we-humans), are all created,…in the image, of our; (“Invisible-God”)!... Except that, Jesus was,…(“sired”),…by God!... Yes, Jesus is,…Seed,…of God’s-own: Seed!...

*(And, as,...“first-born”,...Jesus-is-entitled,…to a,..."double-portion"; of-all-things)*

Note-well, that Jesus,…(“specifically”),…was the,…(“first-born”); of-all-creation!...

We, (humans),…were not. Jesus, is God’s-own-workmanship!... Yes, God’s-own,…(“right-hand-man”); both, literally-and-spiritually, speaking!...

Jesus, was invoked, with,…and, participated in; the-act-of,…(“creating”),…all-known: and unknown, things!...

*(a permission, allotted to Jesus; by His own God, and Father)*

And, only the Father,…is, (“Exempt”),…from-otherwise-being,…in,…(“total-subjection”); to our Jesus!...

For, there is only,…”One-Most-High-God!”...(Jehovah, and/or Yahweh; if-you-prefer)…

And, One-Mediator,…(Jesus-our-Messiah),…between mankind, and-our: Maker!...

Yes, all-things,…were,…permitted-to-be-created,…(“through”),…and,…(“for”),…Jesus!...

*(A permission. As well,…a: gift-of-God)*!... (given-to-His-Son)…

I pray, that-this: “Be completely clear, to all who,…reads this,…today!”… Amen.

“WHEN,…ALL-ENDS,…MEET!”…

Friends, what does it mean,…to believe; in Almighty-God?...(Jehovah, His-Majestic-Name).

It means, to have embraced-the-knowledge,…that, we, (Jesus’-Faithful-Followers); have learned to Honor, our-own-inherent,…(“godliness”)!...

Yes, it’s what the Son-of-God,…teaches!...

To follow in, Jesus’-own-footsteps,…is to, finally reach; this place of, (“godliness”)!... Many, have misinterpreted-and-misunderstood,…that-this-knowledge; makes us into, actual,…(“gods”).

Not, so!... Anymore than, Jesus is,…God, Himself!... He, is the Son,…instead.

Folks, (“Sanctity”), is all-about possessing,…the ability to; set-ourselves-apart. And, not necessarily,…away, from others. For, this would be called,…(“isolation”): much like the, Buddhist-Monks,…do!...

As they, seclude themselves completely, inside their Temples-of-Worship. Much like, the Catholics have always done,…by, (“isolating”); themselves, inside their great-big-convents!...

But, more-so,…be set-apart, (and/or, invoked, positioned-or-ordained); for the purpose, of fulfilling,…a: “specially-designed-task!”...

With regard, to the gospel-message,…we are those; chosen-and-destined, to lead the unbelieving world,…into: the Son’s-Saving-Sheepfold!... Amen.

No, this is not,…an-easy-task!...

But, it’s worth every,…ounce-of-effort; which we, can expend. Yes, there are times,…when,…we-will, slip-back; into old-fears, old beliefs and old,…confusions!...

Yes, we are human, (and have fallen-into, an imperfect; status-quo)!...

Just know that, right where you stand,…God; is-also. And, most importantly,…He, believes; in you. Only, when our intellect, (which is to say, our spirit), becomes still,…will our living-God; then-begin, to unfold-and-unlock,…mysteries-of-old!...

Causing you, (who-believe), to ultimately,…(“soar-like-eagles”)!...

I pray, that: “You, come to accept, the fact that,…you-too, can make; these quiet-pronouncements. Believing, all-the-while,…that, God’s-Presence; activates-and-infuses,…your: very-being!”... Amen.

Yes, this is known,…finally, as having; a true-sense, of peaceful,…well-being!... There’s no magic-formula, that will bring you,…to this,…(“place-and-time”).

The only, true criteria, to meet,…is-that-of, wanting God; in your personal-lives!...(more-than, anything-or-anyone, else).

Seek, this Kingdom-of-God,…first-and-foremost; and all else, shall be given,…unto,…you!... Amen.

Never-mind, your constant stumbling,…falling, head-first; into old-habits and beliefs. (“Fear,…Not”)!...

This truth, about the flesh, and its weaknesses,…is, evident; in all things. Old ways, will fight you,…(“tooth-and-nail”)!...

Just remember, the patience of,…(“Job”). It’s the same, (“patience”), of God!... The very same, patience,…we-must-exercise,…on; ourselves!...

So, don’t beat-yourself-up,…too-harshly!...

Seek out, mentors. We can’t do this, alone. Remember, that giving-up,…(“the-familiar”),…and, the comfortable-things,…in this present-life; is what we,…fear: most!...

Spiritually-speaking, we’re not growing,…when-we’re; comfortable!...

That’s why, I speak, (not-in-favor), of those, who-believe,…themselves; to have come, to-know-fully,…our Creator!... By, calling Him,…Jesus!...

Don’t be fooled, by outward-appearances. Hold-on, to what the Son-of-God,…says-most, about; Himself. About, Who,…He; really is. And, why,…He, was sent; to us, by His own God,…and: Father-in-Heaven!...

Yes, we’re all being,…tested. Mainly, to see if, we’re truly,…listening, to; the Son’s-own-utterances!...

*(please read, the Book-of-John: focus specifically on, chapters 14-and-17)*…

Trust, Jesus’-quoted-words. Place your faith, on the Father’s-Son!... First-and-foremost. Only, what Jesus,…has, said-and-done, (in behalf of humanity); will count,…(“WHEN,…ALL-ENDS,…MEET”)!...

Yes, we’re being fortified. Restored-and-transformed, into this thing called,…(“godliness”)!... Amen.

LET’S-ALL,…(“JUMP-FOR-JOY”)!…

Friends, (“Joy”), is the developed ability,…to stand, in our full-knowledge; of God’s-own-spiritual, truths!...

(“Joy”), faces any-and-all,…physical-experiences; triumphantly-and-victoriously!... Does this mean, that you will be smiling,…all-the-time?... No!...

Does it mean, that we, (Jesus’-Faithful-Followers); always feel good, never-again, to experience moments-of-fear,…doubt, anxiety, shame: guilt, anger-or-loneliness?... Absolutely, not!...

It means, that when you’re challenged, by these,…emotions; you will remind yourself, to rise-up,…and claim: your,…God-Given-Strengths!... Amen.

We’ve been bestowed, (“another-comforter”), named,…”The-Holy-Spirit!”…

With His guidance-and-protection, (spiritually-speaking), we hold steadfast,…to our promised; Salvation!...

(“Joy”), is the willingness to keep-moving,…no matter, what. As, an-inner-courage, (not of our-own, but-rather; invoked), takes us where,…even, Angels: fear-to-tread!...

Yes, our,…(“Joy”),…allows us, to make decisions; and/or conscious-choices, in the face of,…(“insurmountable”),…odds!...

Why?...

Answer: Because, we’ve accepted-and-embraced,…the real-truth. One, that declares us, (who-believe), as creative-beings,…on a uniquely-proper; journey. Yes, chosen by our Maker,…to follow, His-Son; into our, eternal-tomorrows!... Amen.

And, this realization, is what makes us,…(“JUMP,…FOR,…JOY”)!...

Ours, is a living-God,…like no other. Jehovah, His-Glorious-Name!...

Let’s talk-about, (“Happiness”), by comparison. This emotional, state-of-mind,…doesn’t give us, the Power; to sustain ourselves, when we are backed-up,…against-the-wall, (sort-to-speak): by all these, ravenous-wolves, who surround our,…daily-lives!...

(“Joy”), gives us the ability to,…(“stare-down”),…these-hungry-wolves; devouring them, if necessary. Yes, it’s most difficult to be,…(“Happy”),…when, everyone around you; is so-sad!...

This is why, we so desperately need,…to develop, this inner-strength!...(God-Given, and dispersed by His-Agent: The Holy Spirit).

Yes, the indwelling of this,…Spirit; inspires us, to remain,…(“joyous”),…and content: despite our immediate, circumstances and/or situations!...

It can truly be, quite-challenging to remain,…(“Happy”),…when, we’re facing; the unknown, the unexpected and the unplanned,…events: of our present-lives!...

It’s why, in earnest-prayer,…intimately-and-privately; we pray for, this ability to develop this sense,…of: (“inner-joy”)!... Amen.

Folks, our jobs,…disappear; marriages tend to go, sour. Cars-break-down, and sometimes,…all-of-it,…occurs; in-one-day!...

Yes, on a day,…with, fifteen-inches, (15”); of snow on the ground, all-the-while!...

Given, such-scenarios,…we, would have to reach; far-and-wide, to find something to be,…(“Happy”),…about!...

(“Happiness”),…tends to be, a temporary-sensation, of feeling full,…in response; to the immediate-and-specific, circumstances and/or situations,…at hand: in that very moment, day-or-hour!...

(“Joy”),…is, (Not),…circumstantial.

It’s-rather, most,…(“steadfast”),…and, unmovable. Yes,…(“Rock-Solid”),…in its, foundation. Simply, because we are those,…convinced; that-we, are,…(“Alive”): in Christ-Jesus!... Amen.

Yes, because He,…lives; we see, these-eternal-tomorrows,…being-realized: before our very-eyes!... Sooner-than-later!...

“WE-EACH,…ARE,…UNIQUELY-PROPER!”…

Friends, you-and-me,…are evidence, of an,…(“orderly”); developmental-process, in life. We’ve grown, physically, mentally, emotionally-and-spiritually,…(so-I-pray)!...

All done, according to an, (“orderly-unfolding”),…ordained by, our Creator!...(Jehovah, His-Precious-Name).

Yes, there are times,…when our lives, appear to be; in total-disarray. But, even those stages-or-chapters,…of disorder, were actually; appointed for our, developmental,…needs!...

God’s-Divine-Order, in our lives,…clashes-daily, with our; (“self-will”)!...

But, as we begin to yield, (“more-and-more”),…this, in turn; makes us, (“aware”), of our truest,…identity!...

Yes, of a promised, (yet-future), potential,…that; takes us,…to higher-heights!...(spiritually-speaking).

Contrary, to God’s-Will,…are-our, personal; steps-and-choices. Only, when we begin to trust,…more-so; in God’s-own, Divine-Purpose, (for our individual-lives), can we then,…expect to be: more-in-sync, with His-Salvation!...(freely-offered).

Yes, Free!...

But, not without conditions,…which are demanded, of us; first-and-foremost!... The Son-of-God, (Jesus-the-Nazarene), because of His exemplary,…(“Obedience-and-Trust”),…in His God, resulted in; the created-path, which today,…leads us, (who-believe),…right to: God’s-Judgment-Seat!...

Following, in the Son’s-footsteps,…will take us; to this place of, (“sincerity-and-truth”)!... Yes, we’ve learned to, (“lay-down”), our burdens-and-worries,…at the foot; of Jesus’-Cross!...

And, now,…by lessening-our-load; we proceed further, walking alongside the Son,…to: His-Father’s-Throne!... Amen.

The Son, is the,…Way!... But, the Father,…is, our-truest; and final-destination. The Son, stands-there, (on this, perfect-platform), witnessing first-hand,…His-Father’s; final Word!...(on-all-things).

The very, (“Grace-of-God”), is dispensed to us,…in an, (“orderly-fashion”)!...

Each of us, according to,…God’s-own-measuring. Yes, we are all,…at different levels; of spiritual-development. And, that’s-okay!...

How boring-and-dull, if we,…were-all,…to be, alike!...(and-the-same). In all-things!...

All the contrary, is most true. All the hairs, on your head,…are, (“numbered-by-God”)!... Not, just merely,…counted.

(“Numbering”), indicates a sense-of-permanence. A reality, that our attributes, our virtues,…our-all; is actually, written-down somewhere,…as an, absolute: fact-and-truth!...

Whereas, when things are,…(“merely-counted”),…this indeed, (by-human-standards); could be misplaced-or-misappropriated. Because, it denotes that,…(“records”),…are, otherwise kept; more-so, by memory, (word-of-mouth),…which in turn, opens; us-up-to, strong-possibilities,…of information, becoming: quite, distorted!...

It’s why, our Bible,…speaks-about: (“The-Book-of-Life”)!...

Yes, a bound-book,…denoting, written names, (and, I-dare-add; written-or-numbered, accounts); of those deemed-worthy, (according to God’s-own, set-forth-criteria), to enter,…there-into, this promised: “Kingdom-of-God!”... Amen.

I pray, that: “You, dear-reader and friends. Also come, to find yourself,…right, where; you need-to-be. Yes, in order-and-sync,…with the; Son-of-God!... Who, in turn,…has been, our perfect-example; of possessing, (“order”), in His life!”… Amen.

We worship, a living-God,…of much; (“Law-and-Order”)!...

If your home, is cluttered, run-down or unkept,…full-of-stuff; and in complete, disarray. This, in itself,…bespeaks, volumes; of how, (“disorderly”), you are,…currently!...

And, it’s a true-reflection, of what you,…think-about-yourself; and about, God!...

“SO,…HELP-US,…GOD!”…

Friends, please-read,…(Colossians 1:19)…

For, in Him, (meaning, Jesus), all the,…(“fullness-of-God”),…was,…(“pleased”),…to dwell…

Yes, that’s our goal,…also. That, Almighty-God, (Jehovah, His-Excellent-Name), be extremely,…(“pleased”),…to indwell, with us; (His-Son’s-Faithful-Followers)!... Amen.

The Father, (“rested-and/or-nestled”), all of His virtues, characteristics,…knowledge-and-wisdom; in the person, of Christ-Jesus!...

And, this very same,…God; desires to do, (“exactly-the-same”), with you,…dear-reader: and friends. Why?...

Answer: Because, God,…(“wills-it-so”)!...

God’s-own-fullness, is defined, (in-like-manner), as our Bible,…declares-and-defines; God’s-own-Glory!...(read, the whole of chapter 33: in the Great-Book-of-Exodus)…

Towards the end, of this chapter 33,…you’ll read, what’s involved; in God’s-own-Glory!...(read it, carefully-and-slowly)…

Yes, He’s all-about,…attributes, like; God’s-Goodness, His-Grace, His-Mercy,…and, let’s not-ever-forget: God’s-Love!...

God, was indeed,…(“pleased”),…to indwell, with His-Son!...(Jesus-the-Nazarene). Why?...

Answer: Because, trust-and-obedience,…has always been; the Son’s-own, driving-force. This truth, is most evident all-throughout,…our, Holy-Scriptures!...

Since-before, the very foundations-of-Earth,…ever became, manifest; there has been, an unwavering trust,…existent, between the Father: and, His only begotten!...

Likewise, an unmatched-and-exemplary,…Obedience; is constantly demonstrated, by the Son-of-God,…toward: all of His-Father’s-Commands!...

This, is what’s,…(“asked-of-us”),…also!...

To Obey-and-Trust!... And, to never waver, in the fulfilling,…of our,…Father’s-Will…

But, if we never, pray-about-this,…matter; we will not, receive,…the necessary-revelations,…which guide, us: into the, very-act-of,…(“Yielding”)!...

Yes, “Christ-in-us, the hope of glory!”…(read, Colossians 1:27).

This hidden-mystery, has been finally revealed,…but-only, to those; who are spiritual. To the, “natural-mind”, all of this,…is nothing-short; of total, nonsense-and-foolishness!...

God-in-Christ!... And, Christ-in-us!...(His-Faithful-Followers). One-in-Unity, in Love, in Cause-and-Vision,…in: Mindset-and-Mission!...(or, we-are-not).

Yes, in everything,…the Son, is pre-eminent!...

(“First-Born”),…of all creation. This speaks-volumes, that Jesus,…Himself; was indeed, (“created”), by someone,…else!... Who?...

Answer: His own God, and Father-in-Heaven!... Oh’, how I pray that,…you see this, clearly!... Amen.

And, Jesus-of-Nazareth,…is the, (“First-Born”),…and/or,…(“Raised-from-the-Dead”)!...

Yes, the Son-of-God,…is, indeed,…(“First”),…in-all-things!... Why?...

Answer: Because, God,…(“wills-it-so”)!...

(please-read, Colossians 1:17-18).

In, verse,…(20); we must read, with spiritual-clarity,…and discernment. Because, it bespeaks,…of both,…the Father; and, His-Son!...

“And, through Him, (meaning, Jesus), to reconcile to Himself, (meaning, the Father), all-things. Whether on Earth, or in in Heaven. Making peace, through the blood of His, (meaning, Jesus),…Cross!”...

Folks, we didn’t kill God,…up, on that; horrendous, Roman-Cross!... Why?...

Answer: Because, we can’t eliminate a Supreme-Being,…Who, claims to be: (“From-Everlasting,…to,…Everlasting”)!...

It was, His Son,…Who, was ultimately; the (“Sacrificial-Lamb”)!...

Let us, stop exercising, (“double-standards”),…taking us, nowhere; but in endless, circles. Many are those, who are tossed,…to-and-fro, in the waves; from every, (“wind-of-doctrine”),…out-there!...

Let us, be concrete-and-conclusive,…in; all-things. We cannot, one-moment,…be speaking, in terms; suggesting that, Father-and-Son,…are two: individuals!...

Our conceited, (“self”), has fabricated-many-fables. To include, the false-doctrine that,…God, died; for our sins!... Wake-up-folks!... The Potter’s, own-workmanship,…is what’s, reflected; unto the, (“vessel”), which He,…molds-and-shapes!...

Yes, Jesus-of-Nazareth,…is that, (“Vessel”)!... Molded-and-shaped, according to the Father’s-own,…set-forth; purpose and plan. Jesus, is the,…(“expressed-image”),…of: His-Father!...

For, God remains the same,…yesterday, today,…and; forever-more!...

And, He claims to be,…Holy, Holy, Holy!...

This taken-for-fact, God,…cannot-ever, partake; in placing His-Feet, down here, on this fallen,…and: putrid-planet!... His-own-sanctity, will not allow,…it.

That’s God’s own, explanation,…with regard, to His-own; perfection. His,…Holiness!...(it’s not, my own opinion; it’s God’s, definition of Himself)…

We as a believing-people, can’t thereafter,…(“later”),…merge, Father-and-Son; as being, one-in-the-same,…person!... This, only brings-about,…confusion; which is of the Devil, himself!...

Many, who stand behind their, (“pompous-pulpits”),…teach-that, God; sent His Son!... Then, later,…these very same; claim that, Father-and-Son,…are, the same: person!...(absurd-and-ludicrous)…

The Old-Testament, is about a, (“Messiah”),…promised, to come. One, sent by our Creator,…to save; all of mankind!...

The New-Testament, only confirms, this truth,…as Jesus, is manifested; in the very, (“fullness”), of His own,…God: and Father-in-Heaven!... Amen.

But, this doesn’t,…make, Jesus,…out-to-be,…God, Himself!...

Anymore, than you and me,…are God,…ourselves; yet, we’ve been also,…(“created”),…in the very-image: of this same, living-God!...

Folks, it’s in these,…(hidden-fine-details/hidden-manna); called by many, (“mysteries”),…that, real-truth,…today: has-been-revealed!...

No longer, do we remain as,…(“infants-in-Christ”)!... No, sir!...

All the contrary, is most true. We are those, who have finally,…(“matured”)!… As God, makes known,…His Glory, (the clear-answers); to those, whom,…He, has deemed: worthy, chosen-and-destined!...(verse, 26).

May we all, continue, (like our, Apostle-Paul), to powerfully-work,…in presenting, to others, (who-believe): this maturity, existent,…in Christ-Jesus!...(verse, 28).

Yes, for this goal,…we, toil…(verse, 29).

Paul, often-times, regarded both,…the Father-and-His-Son; concurrently, as though,…they, (appeared-to-be),…one: in the same, person. And, yes,…Father-and-Son; are indeed, the,…(“spitting-image”),…of: one-another!...(figuratively-speaking/not-literally)…

What Paul, overall declares, in all of his,…(“written-letters”),…far-outweighs, any doubts; as he, persistently-and-incessantly,…declares and distinguishes; the true-uniqueness, present,…between: the Father, and His-Son!...

*(just take a look, at how Paul; starts his salutations, in each, letter)*…

Dear-reader and friends, (“spiritual-discernment”), is not something,…wished-for.

It’s-truly-a, (“God-Given-Gift”),…offered, in earnest; only to those, who have asked,…knocked-and-searched: for-all-things!...

Yes, we are those,…who, all-the-while; continue pleading, whole-heartedly,…unto, our Heavenly-Father; for the Truth!... The whole-truth, and nothing,…(“but-the-truth”)!...

(“SO-HELP,…US,…GOD”)!... Amen.

We, like our Jesus,…speak-against-those; whose pompous-pride, and worldly-knowledge,…have made them; completely-blind, to the otherwise,…(“simplicity-of-Christ”),…and: His-Teachings!...

I pray, that: “You replace your, stony-hearts,…through-prayer!”… Amen.

The Pharisees of today, have been exposed, (Praise-God)!...

Their falsehood, have been found,…by us; who, swim-strongly,…against, the mainstream-current: of-the,…(“Religionist”)!... Amen.

“PREVAILING-PROMISES,…FOR-THE-GRASPING!”…

Tell me, dear-reader and friends. Who-of-us, can’t relate to our,…Apostle-Paul; when he speaks-about, not understanding his own,…actions?...(read, Romans 7:15).

He, (like-many-of-us), finds himself,…doing, what he, (Paul); hates the most. Yes, more often than,…what he, would otherwise; want-to-do,…instead!...

Don’t we all, possess the desire,…to do, what-is-right; but, also,…lack-many-times,…(more-than-not); the ability, or intestinal-fortitude,…to carry it: out?...(verse, 18).

Yes, Evil,…seems-to-run; in our veins. As we, find ourselves,…almost-never; doing the, (“good”); that we really, want-to-do!…(verse, 19).

Although, we’ve come-to-delight,…in the truths, of Almighty-God, (as Jesus’-Faithful-Followers); our flesh-and-blood, bodies,…constantly, wages-war: against, our very own,…inner-spirit!...(verses, 22-23).

Yes, such is this power-of-sin!...(verse, 25).

Can we strive, with certainty,…to walk; no longer, in the flesh. But-rather, according to the leading,…of the; Holy-Spirit?...(read, Romans 8:1). Oh’, how I pray,…so!... Amen.

I must confess, that my devotion,…focuses-much, on the highlighting; of Jesus’ own,…role!... Everywhere, I see the opportunity,…I stress, to you; the uniqueness, between the Father,…and: His Son!...(Jesus-of-Nazareth).

We were forewarned, with regards,…to-the,…(”Great-Apostasy”)!…

And, its presence,…is; right-inside, the very,…institutions: of higher-learning. Yes, the religious-order,…of the day; have managed, to dupe,…millions-of-people: for centuries, on end!...

It’s the way, of our biggest Adversary,…(Satan), himself!...

Cunning-as-serpents,…yet,…gentle-as-doves!... His, our very,…subtle-ways. This Dark-One, and his-insurgents,…have-delved; in the things, of God,…from: day-one!...

Folks, we can’t run-around,…repeating, popular-phrases; like what this world, has taught us,…to utter: “The Bible, is the infallible,…Word-of-God!”…

Wisdom, dictates differently. Yes, our God-given-reasoning,…has been; completely neglected. We are more-than, mere animals. Who, simply act-upon,…instinct. God, has set-us-apart,…and has, placed-us; in a much-higher-plane, of existence!...

Our reasoning, sets-us-apart, (Sanctifies and makes us, Holy); because of this, (“gift-and-ability”), to discern-well,…all-things!...

Mankind, bound this wonderful,…Book, (our Bible)!.... But, it wasn’t done,…(“free-off”); the Devil’s own, delving into its,…many: written-pages, of old!...

Only those, who have devoted,…their time-and-diligence; can truly appreciate, and confer with,…these: mentioned, truths. Jesus, was sent-down to us,…by, His own God; and Father-in-Heaven!...(Jehovah, His-Precious-Name).

Folks, let’s not-ever-deny,…the Son; His own, demonstrated Valor,…in accomplishing; all-that-was, ever,…asked of Him: to fulfill, (by His Father)…(read, Romans 8: 3)…

Jesus, is,…(Not); God, Himself!...

May we, continually keep,…our hearts-and-minds; focused, on the very-things,…of the Spirit!... For, they are Eternal. Whereas, by contrast,…the things, of the flesh; are-but, most fleeting-and-temporal.

Yes, like vapors-rising,…up; to the clouds, above. Most brief, in its duration,…is-our-stay; here, within this,…dispensation: of time!... Amen.

Yes, we are asked,…a great-deal; by our living-God!...

Many, lofty-expectations,…have been; set-forth, to us. And, for our,…grasping. Many, know,…all-too-well; that, putting-away,…the deeds, of our body; is-all-but, an impossible task,…at times!...

No, it cannot be,…fully-achieve. Why?... For, the inner-spirit,…of each, human-being; is most-willing. Although-the-flesh, is most,…weak!...

Just ask, our Apostle-Paul,…about-that; (“thorn”), in his side!...

Yes, we all have something,…and/or; someone, whom always seems to be,…nagging us: in some-way, shape or form. And, we all,…experience; over-whelming,…(”odds-and-obstacles”),…daily!...

But, know-also,…this, one truth!...

Putting forth, your earnest-effort,…in all, the things-of-God; will yield, (without a doubt), many-rewards. For, our Creator,…stands-back, and sees; all-things!... Amen.

Yes, including those who,…choose, to simply; sit-and-be,…idle.

I pray, that: “You, brothers-and-sisters,…in our Faith; succumb-humbly, daily,…to the leading: of our, Supreme-Being!... Yes, just like the Son,…has, taught-us; to do so!”… Amen.

Let us, approach the very-foot,…of; God’s-Throne, in a state,…of: total-surrender. And, with much,…sincerity. You-too, shall find that,…our Maker; will take, the same-amount,…of steps, towards you; as you, are freely-willing,…to take: towards, Him!...

No, He’s-not-partial,…to; any person. But, He does-show,…much-favor; to those, who truly demonstrate,…Love: for Him!... Will you, give all the Glory,…to God, today?... Oh’, how I pray,…so!... Amen.

Yes, Bless-Him,…with your lips; and in turn, unspeakable riches,…will await-you: right-inside, His Kingdom!... Although, today,…we-stand; (“not-yet-possessors”), of such,…promises.

Never-the-less, I-for-one,…trust, fully; in our Father, and His Son!... Amen.

“THE-TEMPORAL,…VERSUS,…THE-ETERNAL”…

Friends, there was a forty, (40)-day-period,…between; the ascent of Christ-Jesus, and He,…walking-on-Earth: after, His own,…Resurrection!...

This, to me,…(”typifies”),…the, (Millennial-Era); and the,…(Eternal-State), of humanity: as-a-whole!...

Yes, 1,000 years with,…Jesus-of-Nazareth!... Indeed, a transitional period,…where, the; “Sublime-and-Surreal”,…shall meet. A complete, Renovation-and-Restoration,…of sorts; will take-place. A place and time, where much purging-and-purifying,…shall occur!...

There-after, God’s own Presence, (de-facto); shall be witnessed. As He, will once-again,…walk-with-mankind. From, Everlasting-to-Everlasting!...

We, like the Son,…will occupy; Glorified-and-Incorruptible, bodies!...(unlike, our presently-putrid; flesh-and-blood, existence).

Funny, how the tiny nation of Israel,…is the, only-one; who despite being-pushed, into other,…(”host-cultures”); returned to their own, promised land. And, did so,…with their own, language; completely-intact!...

This, in itself,…is phenomenal. Take, the Latin-Language,…for example. Today, it is all-but,…completely-extinguished. Yet, Rome was a conquering Empire,…in those; days-of-old!...

Yes,…God-Vindicates,…His-Holiness!...

Folks, we are witnessing many,…(”strategic-trends”); as we live, in phenomenal-times!... I pray, that,…”You, dear-reader and friends,…be numbered; among the living!”… Amen.

The Millennial-Age, will consist of a blend,…of both; flesh-and-blood, (humans), as well as,…those-selected-souls, (the 144,000; representing all the twelve-tribes, of Israel): who descend, from Heaven,…alongside: our Chosen-Christ!...

(These are those, who demonstrated great-faith and loyalty,…when they lived; here on Earth, at one time,…in their past)... Yes,…(12,000 individuals, from each tribe-of-Israel: 12 x 12 = 144,000)…

Yes, the flesh-and-blood individuals,…who-then-endured, the Tribulation-Period; will see themselves, existing-alongside those,…who will not: experience the,…”second-death!”…

Yes, as Jesus-of-Nazareth,…returns-to-Earth, (the 2nd Advent); He brings with Him, His Father’s,…Host-of-Angels; as well as, these mentioned,…144,000: (specially-chosen-souls)!...

These are those, who are, (Not),…subjected; to a second-death. For, they already occupy,…Glorified-and-Incorruptible; bodies!...(Just like, the Son-of-God,…does)…

Yes, Satan will be bound,…during this, temporal-era; where much purging-and-purifying, will occur. Yes, the Millennial-Era,…a transitional-time; in mankind’s history!...

A time, where much renovation-and-restoring,…will take place. To include, (I-might-add); a further-smoothing-out, of our,…present-spiritual-understandings: with regards to, all-things!...

Yes, without the Devils’ influence,…we, (Jesus’-Faithful-Followers); will have an opportunity, to be well-polished and honed,…by: the very, Son-of-God!...(in a de-facto, manner). Present with us, shall be our,…Mighty-Counselor!...

In a twinkling, of an eye,…and, at any; (unexpected), moment,…God’s-Word: will, come-to-pass!...

And, when all-ends-meet,…the Son, shall co-exist; and co-reign, alongside His own,…God: inside the very walls, of our New-Jerusalem,…as promised!…

(Folks, walls,…have-always-represented; protection, from outside-evil-forces,…whose-harmful-intents: would reach us, otherwise)…

There are spiritual-connotations, (implied); when we speak of walls, surrounding our,…New-Jerusalem!... This simply means-that, nothing else,…shall-ever-penetrate; that promised, perfect-existence. Yes, free from any,…of Satan’s-own; harmful-influences!...Amen.

Notice-well, how our Bible speaks about,…two-thrones, being present; inside these walls, of our New-Jerusalem,…promised. Yes, there will be,…two-thrones. One, for God!... And, one for the,…Lamb!...(meaning, His Son).

It is, with,…(”Rod-of-Iron”),…in hand; that our Jesus, returns!...

Many, will refuse to,…(”bow-a-knee”); to Jesus’ own, Appointed-Authority!... Many, will be ultimately,…buried-and-forgotten. Many, more, will rise,…and, be numbered; among-the-living!... Amen.

Izzy!...

“WE-HUMANS,…ARE-SO-MISTAKEN!”…

Friends, I find it most fascinating,…to read-that; upon our Jesus, yielding-up His Spirit, (please read, Matthew 27:50-54): “The tombs, also were opened. And, many bodies of the saints, (it doesn’t say, how many, specifically; and how sad, that-these aren’t named); who had fallen-asleep, were raised!”…(verse, 52).

Notice-well, how Death,…itself, is likened-here; to being simply, in a deep-state of sleep!... Yes, from which we all,…shall-ultimately; be awaken.

Yes, God’s own,…Resurrection-Power; is such-that, Death,…has-no-claim: over it. We, (Jesus’-Faithful-Followers); will one-day, hear the Voice of,…our: Good-Shepherd!...(Jesus-of-Nazareth).

And, on that Day, and-in-that,…Hour, we-too; shall rise, in Glory!... Amen.

Yes, there are always,…eye-witnesses, involved; to authenticate-and-validate, God’s-Mighty-Works!...(Jehovah, His Glorious-Name)…(verse, 53).

Although, one-thing,…stands out; as being, most specific, (to Jesus’ era, when He walked our Earth). The Resurrection of those saints, mentioned in (verse, 52); was a temporary,…”Type”. It was done, by the Hand-of-God!...

To reassure, all-things taught to the people,…by His Son; all-of-it, indeed,…nothing short, of the truth; the whole-truth, and nothing-but,…the Truth!...

Jesus, (among many other, of His claimers), said-that,…He, would be raised; from-the-Dead, on the third (3rd),…Day!... Yet, on the very moment,…that, He; yielded-up, His Spirit, (as He hung, on that horrendous, Roman-Cross): “Many, were raised from the Dead,…and went, to the Holy-City, (Jerusalem); and appeared to others!”…(verse, 53).

This act, sealed the truth of Jesus’,…prior-teachings. And, it guaranteed that,…we would, still-today; be testifying, to these Truths!...

But, our promised Resurrection,…differs, from those saints; of that Day!...(back in Jesus’-era).

Unlike them, our Resurrection is unto,…”Eternal-Life!”… Although, in many-ways,…we-too, are subjected to; a second-death, (just like the saints, in Jesus’-Day; who eventually died-again, while occupying fleshly-bodies)…

Yes, there’s a,…”Second-Death!”… Of which, many don’t like teaching. It involves a permanent separation, of our spirit,…from our, living-God!... Ask your pastors, preachers-and-priests,…all these, hard-questions. Challenge their knowledge, of the Truth!...

What happens, at the end of Jesus’,…1,000 year-reign?...

What is this,…(”Gulf”); which exist-and-separates, the righteous-ones,…from the; purposely-defiant, and unruly-ones?... Yes, folks!... Jesus, returns with,… (”Rod-of-Iron”)!... And, much correction will occur. All nations, will bow-a-knee,…to God’s own; appointed King!...

Satan, will be bound,…for these,…1,000 years. But, later,…to be released. Yes, one-more-time. And, many still,…will follow; this Dark-One!...(despite, all-future-revelations). Right-down, to the Abyss!...

Yes, inconceivable,…indeed; that-there exist, a place of eternal-torment,…Yes!...

When we, examine-well,…all-things; only then, do we begin to realize that,…because, God; Loves us, He also,…chastises us: as He, sees-fit. Yes,…”If you, spare-the-rod,…you will, spoil-the-child!”...

How true, the Word-of-God!... Many, believe that we instantly,…go to Heaven; upon, our Death!...

Yet, our Jesus-says-that,…we enter-into; a deep-sleep!... From which, we shall-be-awaken,…upon, hearing; His Voice!...(just like, Lazarus). Only, after our Resurrection,…shall-we-know; truly, who’s-who?...

Only, then,…will the goats, (meaning, the purposely-defiant and unruly-ones); be separated from, the docile-and-obedient,…sheep!...(Jesus’-Faithful-Followers)… Amen.

Izzy!...
