“KNOW,…THESE,…TRUTHS!”…

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

*(Please-read, Acts 7:44)*…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

*(read, Acts 7: 44-60)*…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What, did this,…(“Stephen”) / see?...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

A-TRANSFERRABLE,…(“POWER”)!...


Friends. Note-well, in,…*(Acts 8:1)*… How,…(“Saul”) / who-later, was named: “Paul”… Yes!...

Note-well, how,…he / “approved”, of: (“Stephen’s”),…execution!...

Why, did,…God / choose: Paul?...

After, all,…this man’s / written-letters, have occupied; over half,…of-our / “New-Testament-Books!”…

Answer: Because, to whom,…”much-is-given” / much-is-also: “expected-in-return!”… Amen.

Paul,…a / Roman-Citizen, *(Naturalized)*… Yet, he,…was / born,…a: “Jew!”… He, also,…was / well-learned,…and,…quite-founded; in-all-of,…”Moses’-Law!”…

Let’s not, forget,…that,…this, (“Saul”) / happens-to- be,…a: (“Pharisee”)!... *(himself)*…

Who, at the,…”early-stages” / of this, newfound-faith; he was determined, to partake,…in / “eradicating”, those-who: were being called,…”Christians!”…

Was, he,…successful?...

Answer: Not-at-all. Why?...

Because, Almighty-God,…(“purposely-defies”) / human-logic!... Yes, sir!... And, in this case,…of / (“Saul”): he was about, to be,…rudely-awakened!... *(Yes!... By-in-and-thru / God’s-Son)*… Amen.

Yes!... God, uses,…His / opponents, often-times; in the end, to also,…suit-well / all-of: His-Purposes!...

And, the rest,…we all / know,…is: history-in-the-making!... (“Saul”),…later-named / “Paul”… He, converts,…his / heart-and-mind: and becomes, one of the most,…deeply-rooted: (“believers”)!...

As we, move-forward. In,…*(Acts 8:3)*… We see, (“Saul”) / ravaging-the-church. And, entering,…house-after-house / dragging-off, men and women; and committing them,…to / prison!...

Yet, those who,…were / “scattered”; went about,…”preaching-the-word!”… *(read, verse: 4)*…

“Philip”,…takes-over / for-the-now, dead: (“Stephen”)!... How, so?...

Answer: He, begins,…to travel / north; to the city, of,…”Samaria!”… Here, we have,…”Jews” / that have; inter-married, with other,…neighboring / tribes: and in Jerusalem, they see this,…act / as something: “unacceptable!”…

Yes!... The-Samaritans, were looked upon,…as,…less than / True-Jews!... *(by-those-who / lived-in: Jerusalem)*…

Note-well, how this,…”Philip” / is mentioned, (chronologically-so): as the second, individual in line!... *(when, it came to / those: seven, (7), chosen. To tend to, the widows)*…

Please read,…*(Acts 6:5)*…

Yes!... This,…”Philip” / took-over, the,…(“works”) / now: of the,…“martyred”,…(“Stephen”)!...

That’s-right, folks!... The world, takes-down,…one-of / God’s-own: only, to have,…God / Himself: simply, reappoint,…”another-warrior!”… Amen.

Yes!... “Philip”,…steps-right / in: and continues, furthering-along,…The-Word / of-our: living-God!...

In,…*(Acts 8: 5-8)*… We see,…”Philip” / proclaiming: The-Christ!... *(Risen-and-Alive)*…

There was, much,…(“Joy”) / in that, city of: (“Samaria”)!... *(a-northern-region / of: Israel)*…

Many,…”demon-possessed” / individuals, were-being: liberated!... Many, others,…who-were / paralyzed-or-lame; were also, being,…”healed!”… Amen.

Note-well, the following / verses: *(Acts 8: 9-40)*…

Read them, carefully-and-slowly!...

This,…”Holy-Spirit / Power”: is-indeed-a,…(“TRANSFERRABLE,…POWER”)!... Only, those who,…”possess-it” / can-in-turn: pass it, onto,…”others!”…

Note-well, how,…although / many, were-being; “baptized”,…in / Jesus’-Name!... It wasn’t, (“until”),…Peter-and-John, *(two of the / original-twelve: Disciples)*,…traveled-up, to this city,…of / “Samaria!”…

And, began,…to / “lay-hands”,…and / “pray-for-these”: recently-baptized, individuals,…that-they / then: and only,…then / “received!”… The-Holy-Spirit!... Amen.

That’s-right!... Only,…(”after”) / Peter-and-John, touched-and-prayed; over these, recently-baptized,…by / “Philip”: did they, actually,…and / finally-receive: The-Holy-Spirit!... Why?...

Answer: Well, if we,…back-track / just-a-bit; and go to,…*(Acts 6:5)*… We can see, that it was,…(“Stephen”) / who-was, actually: “full-of-faith”…. And, full-of-the,…”Holy-Spirit!”…

It doesn’t, mention this,…about / any of the; other six, (6), member-group,…chosen: to tend, to the needs,…of the / widows!...

The,…other-six, (6): were known, as being,…”devout” / men, and of: “good-repute!”… But, this is not,…the same / as: (“Stephen’s-Stance”)!... Which, was declared to have been,…”full-of-faith” / and-of: The-Holy-Spirit!...

To me, this interprets as,…an-unspoken-understanding / that: (“Stephen”),…had one of / the-original-twelve, Disciples: pray-and-lay, hands,…over / him… Putting,…this / “Stephen”: obviously, in charge,…(if-you-will) / over-the-other: six!... *(in that / chosen-group)*…

I conclude, that,…many are / “baptized”: in the, Name-of-Jesus!... But, this doesn’t,…necessarily / mean-that: you are to,…”receive” / The-Holy-Spirit!... *(as-an-end / result)*…

The question, remains: “Who, is doing,…the / actual-baptizing?... Is, he-or-she,…truly / a,…Holy-Spirit: filled-individual?”...

*(please-read / specifically: Acts 8: 14-17)*…

Also, to be noted,…well / is the fact, that; there’s a person, named,…”Simon!”… In this, mentioned chapter, (8): this individual, was known to be,…a / “Magician!”…

One,…who / “Amazed”: countless-others, and had a multitude,…of / followers!... Yet, he,…too / was, ultimately: “Amazed!”… *(at this,…ability / of-the: Holy-Spirit-Power)*…

To the point, where he, (Simon) / addresses, Peter: and ask, this Apostle,…if / he: could pay, him,…to / receive: *(This-Power)*…

The-Magician, refers to the,…Holy-Spirit / as-a: (“Power”)!...

I-personally-continue, to believe that,…this / Holy-Spirit: is truly, a-separate-entity!... *(uniquely-proper / and different: apart from, The-Father and His-Son)*…

Who, happens to,…(“share”),…and/ or,…(“relay”): God’s-Holy-Power!... *(onto-others / as-the-Spirit: deems-worthy or necessary)*…

Note-well, that,…because,…(“Simon’s-Heart / and – Motives”); were not, pure,…but-rather / this man, sought: personal-gains!... Peter, warns this,…Magician / that-he: best-beware!...

Yes!... We, must all,…be of a / (“right-stance”): with our, Creator!... For, these mentioned,…special-gifts / are not, to be: “capitalized-upon!”… Amen.

As, I come,…to-a-close / in this: passage!...

I want to mention, the,…Queen’s / Eunuch!... His, name is not,…mentioned!... But,…”Candace” / was-the-name,…of-this,…”Ethiopian-Queen!”…

And, the,…”Eunuch” / was-a-court, official; appointed to oversee, the Queen’s,…Treasury!...

This,…”Eunuch” / accepts-being-baptized; and openly, professes the following: “That, Jesus-Christ,…is-the / Son-of-God!”… Not,…that / Jesus-is-God,…Himself!... *(as-our-worldly, churches / would have: you believe, otherwise)*…

Dear-reader and friends. I can’t, over-emphasize-enough!... We, must always read,…entire / chapters: so we can, come-to-conclusions,…about-what / is-being: said!...

Take the time!... This, chapter,…(8) / must-be-read: in-its-entirety!... You, too,…will see / The-Truth!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

FROM-MY-HEART,…TO / “YOURS!”…

Friends. I pray, that you’re convinced,…about-the-fact / that: no-human-being, can actually,…”see” / God!... *(and later / still-live,…to, tell-about: it)*…

We,…”Hear-His-Voice” / and, also: we can,…”See-His-Presence!”… As, was the case,…for-the / Israelites: as they, wandered in the,…wilderness!...

What they,…”saw” / was-a: “Pillar-of-Fire”,…during the nights!... And, during the days,…God’s / “Presence”; was displayed, as-a,…”Pillar-of-Cloud!”…

In addition, please note the,…”spiritual-connotation” / behind-this-word, of: “Pillar!”… I receive, that it means,…that / Almighty-God: is truly, the,…One-and-Only / True-Pillar!...

Does, He,…not / “suspend”; all the known, planets,…on what / seems-to-be: absolutely-nothing?... *(an-apparent / black-endless-space)*…

Yes!... Yet, each,…”celestial-body” / knows-its, designated: “course!”… None, collides,…with any / other; as each, orbits, rotates and constantly,…are / “moving-about!”…

Yes!... Such, are the,…Marvels / of-our: “Maker!”… Amen.

In this, case-in-point / God, was: Israel’s,…(“Pillar-of-Salvation”)!... And, He,…brought them / out-of-Egypt; by the, very-hand,…of,…Moses!... *(a-designated / leader: full-of-faith, and wisdom)*…

Folks!... Remember, always,…that it is / because, of: “The-Sanctity”,…of / God: that, humans aren’t allowed,…to actually / “see”: God!... *(in-a / “de-facto-manner”)*…

God, won’t,…(“Taint”),…His-own / “existence!”… Nor, will,…He / permit: anything-nor-anyone, to even think-about,…”defiling” / His-Perfect-Holiness!... Amen. No, sir!... God,…won’t / be: “Mocked!”…

We, by contrast,…are / “fallen”: we’ve inherited, a-digressing-condition!... Present, ever-since,…the very / first-pair: “Sinned!”…

Dear-reader and friends. Almighty-God, *(Yahweh)*,…has-no-need / to-prove: Himself!... No, sir!... Not, to anyone. Yet,…He / Loves; mankind enough, to continue,…”reaching-out” / to: those-who-believe!... *(by-means / of: Mediators)*…

When, I consider,…that / a-special-tent; had to be,…”pitched” / for our, Moses: to be able, to visit,…with / God!... And, this,…”Tent-of-Meeting” / was actually: “far-off”,…from the / regular-base-camp: of the, Israelites!...

This, once-again,…proves to me / that: God, won’t be,…”defiled” / by-any-one: of us!... *(exempt-are-those / whom-only: He, chooses)*…

That’s-right!... No one, shall,…ultimately / “Taint-His-Truths!”… Amen.

Even, those,…”chosen-and-destined” / typically-are, (“viewing”): Angels!... *(God’s-Messengers)*…

Or, other,…”spiritually-symbolic” / manifestations!... Such, as,…white-doves!... Descending, from what appeared,…to be,…”Heaven” / itself!... *(this occurred / when-our, Jesus: was publicly, “baptized”)*…

Yet,…God’s-Voice / “resonated”, from-where?...

Answer: It was,…”heard” / from: Heaven, itself!... Amen. The-Holy-Spirit’s,…(“Presence”) / revealed-itself-as: a-white-dove, descending,…and / remaining-permanently: upon, our,…Lord-and-Saviour!... *(Jesus-the-Christ)*… Amen.

Prophets-of-Old, were another,…”example” / of – how: our-living, God,…”reaches-out” / to: humanity!... Yes!... We, indeed,…”hear” / God’s-Voice: but, it’s by,…the-hand / of: specially-selected, individuals,…and/or: “celestial-entities!”… Amen.

The,…Son-of-God / Jesus!... He, was and still,…”remains” / the-best-example,…of: God’s-Instruments, being,…utilized / for-the, “reaching-out”: onto, the whole,…of / mankind!... Amen.

Yes!... The-Son!... (“Sent-by-God”),…to share / The-Truth!... Jesus, constantly-teaching,…everyone / about, striving-for: “His-Father’s-Favoring!”… Amen.

(“Obedience”),…is the,…only / Key!... This, is what will,…in the end / “open-the-door”: into, our,…eternal / tomorrows!...

And, as I come,…to a close: Please, pray with me!... Won’t,...you?...

“Heavenly-Father, may we all,…come to learn / to: (Obey-only-You)!... As, Your-Son,…has-so / diligently: taught-the-world!”… Amen.

Friends. God-Willing, in the,…near-future / we-will, “together”: continue, our studies,…of / God’s-Word!...

Chapter, (9) / of-the: “Book-of-Acts!”… Shall,…follow!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“ONLY,…GOD,…KNOWS!”…


Friends. I greet you, today,…in-the-name / of: God’s-Son!... *(Jesus)*…

Let’s take, a good look at,…chapter / 9: of this, “Book-of-Acts!”… Shall-we?...

Note-well, how,…(“Saul”) / actually-asked-for: “letters!”… *(the equivalent / of: warrants)*… Yes!... From, the,…”High-Priest!”…

This, man,…(“Saul”) / breathed: “threats-and-murder”, against the disciples,…of-our: Saviour!... *(Please-read, Acts 9: 1-2)*…

Saul’s goal, was to bring,…those, who / “belonged”: to the, Way!... Back to, Jerusalem,…in /chains!...

Note-well, that,…”A-Voice” / was-heard, by: (“Saul”)!.. A,…”Light” / from: Heaven!... *(shone-around / Saul)*…

“Spiritually-speaking”,…I-ask-you, dear reader and friends. “Who, is our,…(Light) / of-this: world?”…

Answer: None-other, than-the,…Son-of-God!... *(Jesus-the-Christ)*… *(read, Acts 9:3-7)*…

Not, Saul,…nor / even-the-men; who were, traveling with,…Saul / ever-actually: “Saw”,…Jesus!... No, sir!...

What they, indeed,…”Saw” / was-a-great: (“Light”)!... Yet, everyone present,…at-this-scene / “heard”: this,…”Voice!”… Why?...

Answer: Jesus, at this,…point-in-time / stands-truly: (“Glorified”)!... *(by-the-hand / of: His-Father, in Heaven)*…

Jesus,…”descends” / from: Heaven!... From, standing at the,…”right-hand” / of: His-Father’s-Throne!... *(note-well, that / Jesus: doesn’t occupy, a throne, of,…His-own, up: in Heaven)*…

Jesus, is the promised,…”Messiah” / Who: will occupy, King-David’s-Throne!... Yes!... Down, here,…on /Earth!... *(in / God’s-Good-time)*… Amen.

We, humans,…aren’t-always / “privy”; to be actually,….”eye-witnesses” / of: celestial-bodies!... *(seeing-them / in-a: “de-facto-manner”)*…

Hence-forth, since they,…”descend-from” / Glorified-Positions: often-times, we can only,…actually / “view”: spiritual-symbolisms!...

In, the case of,…(“Saul”) / being a persecutor: of this, newly-sprung,…Way!... What, he, (Saul),…actually, “sees” / is-a-blinding: (“Light”)!...

*(this is / symbolic-of-our: Saviour)*…

Note-well, when our,…Jesus / “rendered-up”: His-Spirit!... *(as, Jesus / hung: on that, Roman-Stake)*…

This, physical-world,…of ours / was – suddenly: “Darkened!”… Why?...

Answer: Because, we lost,…the / (“Light”): of this, world… Who?...

Answer: Jesus!... God’s-Son!... Our,…truest / “guiding-light!”…

Without, The-Son’s,…wisdom-and-understanding / we-remain, in: total-darkness!... Yes!...

Dumb-founded, and totally,…”Stupefied!”… I shall, come to a,…close / in this: passage. By, saying that,…we / must-remember-that: “mankind’s-fallen-state”,…prohibits / us, from: otherwise,…”viewing” / anything-or-anyone: who represents,…”True-Holiness!”…

The-Son,…re-gains / The-Glory; which He, (Jesus),…once – possessed: alongside of, His-Heavenly-Father!... *(Yahweh / His-Unmatched-Name)*…

Jesus, fulfilled,…His / commissioned-work: becoming,…”exalted” / from-wherever, Jesus: once, previously,…”stood!”…

This,…Bright-Light / from – Heaven; shining around, Saul,…*(Acts 9:3)*… This, is that,…Glorified-Son!...

*(remember – how / Moses: couldn’t actually, fix-his-sights: on that, Angel. In the flame, in a bush)?*… That’s-right!...

And, what about,…that / Angel: holding, a,…”Flaming-Sword!”… Guarding, till this day / the entrance, of: The-Garden, of,…Eden?...

Yes!... Folks!... “Brilliance!”… All, that,…represents / Heaven: “Shines-Forth!”… Often-times, in most,…blinding / ways: Moses, own,…personal / “semblance”: changed, completely…

After, his own,…”experience” / with that: Angel, of,…God!... Amen.

Getting back, to,…case-in-point / Jesus!...

Second-in-Command!... Only,…to / His-Father, in: Heaven!... *(Yahweh)*… Who, happens to,…”rule” / over: “All-Things!”… Yes!...

As, our,…(“Most-High”),…God!...

“DO-YOU,…BELIEVE?”…

Friends. As we, together,…move-forward / in: chapter, (9),…of this / “Book-of-Acts!”… Let’s remember, how these,…”specially-selected” / individuals: “hear”,…either / “God’s-Voice!”… And/or,…Jesus’-Voice!...

Yes!... (“In-A-Vision”),… Folks!... This, means,…”Dreams” / and-or: “Trances!”… *(please-read, Acts 9:10, 12)*…

And, they can occur,…either / while: sleeping and/or, being,…seemingly: wide-awake!... Yes!...

In this, particular,…(“case-in-point”) / both: Ananias, (the-high-priest),…and / Saul: “experienced”,…these / “Visions!”…

Dear-reader and friends. Why, must we,…”suffer” / for-the-sake, of: Jesus’-Name?...

Answer: *(read-verse: 16)*… Well, partly-because,…this, world / of-ours: “rebukes-and-refuses”,…to be, otherwise: led-by-any,…”Higher-Authority!”… *(than-that, of / themselves)*…

Yes!... Our, Bible,…warned us / that-everyone: in these, present days. Would be doing, exactly,…what they / themselves-believe: to be,…the / “right-thing!”… *(however-wrong / they-may-be: in reality)*…

Many, walk-about,…saying: “I’m-grown!... And, nobody,…can-tell-me / what-to-do!”… Yes!...

So,…we / in-the-end: “suffer!”… Many, things,…in / many-ways!... We, suffer,…”rejection” / from-our-own: immediate, family members… *(for-starters)*…

Truth-be-known, we,…”suffer-much” / for-only-wanting: to tell, and to share,…unpopular-truths!... Rejected, we stand,…often-times: inside this, hurting and lost,…world / of-ours!...

We,…(“Jesus’-Faithful-Followers”) / are misinterpreted: and also, misunderstood. Many, out there,…believe / that-we-think, ourselves: to be, actually,…”mightier-than-others!”… No, sir!...

The-Religionist, are doing a,…well-enough-job / of: demonstrating a,…”Holier-than-Thou!”… *(attitude)*…

Note-well, how,…(“Saul”) / once-regaining, his own: sight!... Immediately, thereafter,…gets / baptized: and begins, to proclaim,…our / Jesus: in-the-synagogues!... *(plural / meaning: more-than-one, place-of-worship)*…

Yes!... Saul, (who-now, becomes known / as: Paul),…begins to openly / profess: our Jesus, as being the,…”Son-of-God!”… *(please-read, Acts 9: 20)*…

Folks!... What, part of this,…(“Truth”) / do-we-not: understand?...

For,…(“None”) / of: Jesus’-Followers, ever called,…Him / God!... No, sir!... They, all,…knew-well / Jesus’-own: position!... Yes!...

“The-Messiah”,…sent-by, God!... (Not),…God / Himself!... Amen.

So, where do our,…worldly-churches / get, these: absurd-and-ludicrous, beliefs?... The-Trinity-Doctrine, proclaims that,…God / has: three, (3),…natures!...

As, I come to a,…close / may-we-all: “Be full, of,…(good-works) / and of much: charity. Yes!... As-a-direct, result of our,…exercised / Faith!”… Amen.

Just, like,…”Tabitha”… *(read, verse: 36)*…

Pay-attention, you,…men / who-happen, to believe: that, our,…living-God / doesn’t use, women: as, His-own,…”Instruments!”…

Folks!... Because, of,…”Tabitha’s” / good-works: our-apostle, Peter,…deemed – her, worthy: of receiving,…(“Life”)!...

Yes!... She,…”rose” / from-among: The-Dead!... *(for, she had become / very-ill: and died)*…

Yet, though she,…died / she-was-made, to: (“Live”)!... *(by-the-hand / of: Peter)*… Amen.

Folks!... This,…”Resurrection-Power” / was-most-specific; to that, first-century-era. It was, necessary,…for the / demonstrating-of: God’s-Living-Power!...

Something, never-replicated,…again!... Blessed, is,…he-or-she / who-believes: without having, to actually,…ever / see!... Amen.

Tell me, dear-reader and friends. Are you, one who,…”believes” / these-truths?... Without, having to,…see / them?... Oh’, how-I-pray,…so!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“GOD-WILLING,…WE / SHALL-CONTINUE!”…

Friends. Note-well, how this word,…of / “Lord”, is-so; inter-changeably,…used / throughout: our-whole,…”New-Testament!”…

*(Please-read, Acts 10: 3-4)*…

Although, the centurion,…named / “Cornelius”, clearly-sees,…an / “Angel-of-God”; this same, Angel,…our / Bible, illustrates: as-being-a,…(“Lord”)!... Why?...

Answer: Because, in those days,…anyone-who-held / a-higher-position; than your own, was called,…a / “Lord!”…

Also, anyone,…to whom, you / may-be-indebted; was known, to be your,…(“Lord”)!... Yes!... This, person,…(“Lords-Over-You”)!...

Even, in today’s,…modern-world / we have: (“Land-Lords”)!... Yes!... To whom, we pay,…our / dues!... Don’t,…we?...

Jesus-of-Nazareth, is our,…(“Lord”) / because, He; paid-in-full, all the wages,…set-forth / by: His-Father’s-own, celestial,…(“criteria”)!... Amen.

And, so,…Jesus / (“Lord’s”): over, our personal,…lives!... Why?...

Answer: Because, we,…(who-believe) / are-eternally-grateful: *(not-indebted / for-this-is: a-freely-given, “gift-of-God”)*…

Yes!... The,…”Son-of-God” / Jesus!... Our, Saviour,…indeed!...

But, my true,…(“case-in-point”) / is-this: Much, confusion,…is / brought-about, when this; (“inter-changeable / title”): ends up, misinterpreted-and-misunderstood,…by-the / general-masses!...

That’s-right!... Much,…”misunderstandings” / result, when: all-ends-meet!... Why?...

Answer: Because, The-Devil,…is / still: in-all-the, details!... Amen.

And, this,…(“Dark-One’s”) / best-work-yet: lies, right inside many,…(not-all / grant-you): worldly-churches, today!...

Getting-back, to the,…”Book-of-Acts!”…

This, centurion,…answers: “What, is-it,…(Lord)?”… *(read, Acts 10: 4)*…

When, it’s actually,…an / (“Angel-of-God”); whose-directing, himself,…towards this, man,…named / “Cornelius!”…

Folks!... Angels, are indeed,…”super-natural” / whereas, we humans; are, but mere,…flesh-and-blood / creatures, of: Almighty-God!... *(Yahweh)*…

Yes!... We, are,…”inferior” / by contrast, and; much-less, capable of many,…things!... *(than-the / Angelic-Realm)*… Amen.

All,…”entities” / that, descend; from what we, call,…”Heaven!”… These, are all,…most / “Holy!”… Meaning, by,…”comparison” / they-are-all: set-apart and sanctified!... *(Yes!... Sacred!...)*

I pray, that: “You, dear-reader and friends. Not, become confused,…but-rather / come-to-fully, discern: (all-things)!”… Amen!”... *(spiritually-speaking / of-course)*…

Our,…Bible / speaks-of-being; in-a-“Trance!”…

Our,…Apostle-Peter / would often, times; “receive”,…God’s-Messages!... *(By-in-and-thru / these: “trances-or-visions”)*…

They, can occur,…while / either: asleep-or-awake!...

Folks!... Note-well, how,…once-again / we-are-told, that: “Holy-Angels”,…do-all-the / “directing-and-instructing!”… Yes!...

These,…(“Mediators”) / bring us: God’s-Desires!... They are,…(“God’s-own / Sounding-Boards”)!... *(if-you-will)*…

Yes!... They, express-and-relay,…in / a: “Verbatim-Way!”… All, that,…God / desires-to-say!... *(with regard /to: communicating, with humanity)*…

Peter’s-Vision, in this chapter,…(10) / represents-a-deeper: spiritual-connotation!... *(read, Acts 10: 11-16 )*…

Yes!... God, shows,…(“No-Partiality”) / read-verses: *( 28, 34, 35 )*…

All, who-believe,…and / “does”: the-right-thing, is in the end,…”acceptable” / to: Almighty-God!... *(By-in-and-thru / His-Son)*… Amen.

Yes!... Friends!... (“Obedience”)!... And, doing,…The-right / “Thing!”…

Many of us, know,…what / this: (“right-thing”), refers to!... But, we,…often-times / simply-lack, the necessary: “courage”,…to / (“Act”)!...

We,…are those / who-merely: “re-iterate”,…these-simple-truths!... God,…(“Was-With”) / His-Son!...

Just,…as / His-Son: (“Was-With”),…His-Father!... *(since-the-very / beginning: read John 1:1)*…

After,…”John-the-Baptist”,…proclaimed-publicly: “The-Messiah!”…

God,…(“Anointed”) / His-Son!... With,…this / “Holy-Spirit!”… And, with much,…(“Power”)!... *(read-verse: 38)*…

Is, God,…also / (“With-You”)?... Oh’, how-I-pray,…so!... Amen.

Chapter, (10) / to-be-continued: (“God-Willing”)!...

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“ARE-YOU,…LISTENING?”…

Friends. As, we,…”together” / come-to-a, close!... *(with-chapter / 10: of this, “Book-of-Acts”)*…

*(Please-read, Acts 10: 40-48 )*…

And, do so,…*(thoroughly)*… Amen.

Yes!... It was, Almighty-God / *(Yahweh)*: Who, actually,…”raised” / His-Son!... *(from-among-the / Dead)*… Amen. *(verse: 40 )*…

Note-well, that,…God / made-Jesus, to appear: (Not),…to-all-the / people!... No, sir!... But, rather,…only-to-those / who-had-been: (“Chosen-By-God”)!...

Folks!... This, is our,…Apostle-Peter / speaking-here!...

You, see,…dear-reader and friends. What, Jesus,…”Commanded” / of: His-Disciples!... Was, all-about,…this / “Plain-Truth!”…

Answer: That, He,…(Jesus) / is-the: “One”,…appointed-by / God!... Yes!... Why?...

Answer: To be / “Judge!”… Of, the living,…and of,…the / Dead!... *(read, verses: 41 – 42 )*…

That’s-right!... The,…(“Authority-Given”) / to-the: Son!... Was, one of,…”over-seeing” / (“All-Flesh”)!... Amen.

Whereas, by,…contrast / “The-Father”: remains, much in control… Yes!... *(Yahweh)*,…is / “Ruler-of-All”: things!... *(both / in: Heaven-and-Earth)*…

Jesus’-Role, is most,…(“specific”) / dear-reader!...

He, is,…The-Son / (“sent-by-God”)!... Jesus,…I-must-insist / is – (Not): God,…Himself!... No, sir!...

It is,…”The-Father’s” / set-forth-terms, that: “Everyone, who,…(believes) / in-the: Son!... Finally,…(“receive”) / forgiveness-of-sins!”… Yes!...

*(By-in-and-thru / Jesus’-Precious-Name)*… Amen.

*(read, verse: 43 )*…

Friends. Although, I personally,…continue-to-believe / that-this, “Holy-Spirit”: is-indeed, an-individual-entity,…onto / itself.

He,…(The-Holy-Spirit) / has-been-bestowed: a very, special,…(“Power”)!... Yes, sir!...

Given,…by / God!... For,…(“All-Things”),…proceed / from: our-living, God!...

Our,…Bible / speaks-about, this: “Holy-Spirit!”… As, being,…a / (“He”)!... This, in,…itself / gives-it, a proper: and very, unique,…stance!...

*(separate-but-equal / in: Holiness)*…

For,…(“All-Things”) / which-descend, from: Heaven!... Are, indeed,…”Holy, Holy, Holy!”… Amen.

Yet,…at-the-same / time, our Bible; mentions that,…it is / a: (“Power”)!... Which, is,…”Poured-Out!”…

Yes!... “A-Power”,…which / falls-upon: specifically-chosen, individuals!...

Believers, chosen-and-destined,…by / God!... *(read, verse: 44 )*…

Most, interesting,…here / is-that; in this, case,…”The-Holy-Spirit” / FALLS-UPON: (“All”),…who-are-present!... Yes, sir!...

This, includes,…(“Cornelius”) / The-Roman: centurion!... And, it’s also,…”poured-out” / onto, his: immediate-family, members. Yes!...

His, entire,…”household-of-Faith!”… Amen.

As, well,…”poured-out” / onto: (“Cornelius”),…close / personal-friends!... Wow!...

Yes!... (“ALL”),…who / “heard!”… The-Word!... *(read, Acts 10: 24 )*…

Afterwards,…Peter / “commands”: that-they-be, baptized!... Yes!... In, the,…Name-of-Jesus!... The-Christ, and/or,…Anointed-One!...

Anointed, by,…whom?...

Answer: By, Jesus’-own-God!... Yes!... And, Who,…happens / to also, be: His-Father!... *(in-Heaven)*… Yahweh!... His-Glorious-Name!... Amen.

So, as I come,…to a close / note-well, that: in chapter, (8),…of / “Acts!”…

We, have,…many people,…being / “baptized!”… And, done so,…in / the: Name-of-Jesus!... Yes, sir!...

Yet,…our / Apostle-Peter: and his, brother-in-Faith!... *(The-Apostle / John)*… Yes!... They, both,…had / to visit: the city, of,…”Samaria!”…

Yes!... Both, of these,…two / “original-disciples”: traveled, north-bound,…from / Jerusalem!... To, lay-hands,…and / to: pray-over, these newly,…converted: “believers!”…

Why?...

Answer: Because, none,…although / “baptized”: by the, devout,…”Philip!”… None, had actually,…”received” / The-Holy-Spirit!...

So,…this / (“Power”)!... Must, be,…(“transferred”) / by,…someone; who, already,…”possesses” / this, (marvelous-gift): of,…God!...

But, as we read,…onward / in: chapter, (10): of this,…”Book-of-Acts!”…

Peter, is proclaiming,…The-Word / before: a group, of,…”gentiles!”… *(non-Jewish / believers)*…

And, what,…happens?... *(Suddenly)*…

Answer: And, all-of-the,…”sudden” / this: “Holy-Spirit”,…falls-upon / them: Yes!... It’s,…(“poured-out”) / onto: (“ALL”),…who / “heard!”…

The-Word!... *(read, verse: 44 )*…

Folks!... “Faith”,…comes-by / “hearing!”… And,…”hearing” / by: The-Word,…of,…Almighty-God!... Yes!...

Tell me, one thing!... “Are you,…(listening-well) / to: Jesus’-Sayings?”… Oh’, how-I-pray,…so!... Amen.

P.S. Almighty-God,…(“commands”) / this: Holy-Spirit-Power!... To,…”descend” / upon, whomever; God,…deems-worthy, to: receive!...

And, this,…(“marvelous-gift”) / occurs, in any: given-order!...

As, God,…so / “chooses!”… To do,…so!...

So, it can,…actually / occur, (“before-or-after”),…being,…”baptized!”… Amen.

The, real-question,…”remains” / as-follows:

“Who, is,…(present),…during / your-own: baptismal?”…

Remember, always-that: All-Things, and,…All-Powers!... Originate-and-Proceed,…from,…God / Himself!...

*(not, from / the hand, of: any, man-or-woman)*…

Yes, sir!... Only, as,…God / “deems”: appropriate-and-right!... Does, He,…then / disperse: this, wonderful,…”Gift!”…

*(The-Holy-Spirit / “Power”)*… Amen.

Folks!... All things, are,…”possible” / as the: old-adage-goes!... But, not,…all-things / are: truly-probable!... *(I-always-say)*… Amen.

Is, (“real-healing”),…happening / inside: your-chosen-churches?... If, not!... Then, you must,…”question” / your-spiritual-leaders!...

For,…the-most-part. I’m convinced, that,…the / (“wonders-and-works”): of this, first-century-era!... Has, yet,…to / be, actually: replicated, in today’s,…modern-world!...

There’s much, “lip-service” / out-there: but,…”Actions” / always-speak: louder-than-words!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

AND-SO,…I / “BELIEVE!”…

Friends. Many,…”good-deeds” / are accomplished, by-the-hand: of those,…”specially-selected” / to-fulfill: (“God’s-Will”)!... Amen.

*(Let’s read, Acts chapter 11: in-its-entirety)*… Shall-we?...

In the first,…*(verse: 1)*… There’s a definite, distinction-declared,…between / being-an-Apostle: and being,…a / “Brother-in-Faith!”… Why?...

Answer: Because, *(I-personally-believe)*…an-Apostle, *(meaning / one-sent-forth)*…is-an-individual / full-of-the: “Holy-Spirit-Power!”… Yes!...

Also, this would be,…an / individual: also, full-of-Faith!... And, of much,…(“God-Given-Wisdom”)!... Amen.

Whereas, by,…contrast / a: “Brother!”… Is, one-who-has,…come to / “embrace-and-believe”: that, our,…Jesus / is-truly-the: (“Son-of-God”)!...

Yes!... *(Humanity’s-Saviour / The-Messiah)*…

And,…a / “Brother-in-Faith!”… Is,…(Not) / necessarily: full-of-God’s / Wisdom!... Nor, of the,…”Holy-Spirit-Power!”…

Note-well, how our,…Apostle-Peter / mentions, that; he-is-accompanied, by,…six, (6): “Brothers!”…

A total, of,…seven, (7) / men: *(spiritually-this-number / of – (7): represents, completeness and/ or fulfillment)*… Amen.

But, it is,…our / Peter, who: “Heads”,…this-small-group, as they; travel to the, centurion’s-house,…(“Cornelius”)!...

Yes!... Peter, *(one-of-the / original-twelve, (12)*… He, baptizes with the,…”Holy-Spirit-Power!”… *(read, Acts 11: 16 )*…

It’s a,…(“gift”) / given-by: Almighty-God!... *(Yahweh / His-Mighty-Name)*…

Yes!... From,…”Father-to-Son!”… Then, from,…Son / to: His-immediate, Disciples!...

Thereafter, these,…”specially-selected” / individuals, in turn: “pass-on”,…and/ or,…”transfer” / this: (“God-Given-Gift”)!... Amen.

Yes!... Onto, whom,…they / deem-worthy, of: (“receiving”)!...

But, what’s the criteria,…for the / “receiving”: of this, (“gift”)?...

Answer: First-and-Foremost, that,…you / “Believe!”… That, our,…living-God / (“sent-us”): His-only-begotten, Son!... Yes!...

Jesus!... To be, that,…(“Propitiation”)!... He, (Jesus),…fulfilled / His-Father’s-Will…

Folks!... We, cannot,…talk-of-two / entities, (meaning – Father / and: Son): to only, later,…merge-them / “together!”… As, being,…the / same: Person!... No, sir!...

*(use, your / God-Given-Reasoning)*…

It’s what, sets-us-aside,…from / otherwise, being: mere-animals!... *(who-only-act / upon: “instincts”)*…

“Repentance”,…leads to / (“Life-Eternal”)!... Yet, some of you,…”still” / don’t-believe-that; you have, anything,…from which,…to / “Repent!”…

And, so,…you / don’t-ask: neither, your loved-ones,…nor / your: immediate-inner-circle, of,…friends. For, this,…”forgiveness!”…

Simply, because,…you / believe-that: you’ve done, them,…nothing / wrong!... My own, (“sister”) / is guilty: of this, fact. She’s, one to believe,…that / the-whole-world: has done, her,…wrong!...

Yet, she,…fails-to-see / that: she-herself, had much to do,…about / being: right-where-she / is: today!... Five-marriages, later. And, yet / she-sees: “nothing!”…

*(within-herself / that-screams: the need, to ask for,…”forgiveness!”)*… Amen.

How many of us, walk-about-daily,…believing / that: it’s everybody, “else” / who-has-done: us, wrong?... And, that,…we / ourselves: have not, partaken,…in doing / anyone: wrong?... *(Oh’, how,…mistaken / we-live: our-daily-lives)*…


Yet,…(“wrong-you-stand”)!... Yes!... In, the very,…”eyes-of / God!”… Amen.

*(read, Acts 11: 18 )*… We, are those,…who / “preach”, our: Lord-and-Saviour, Jesus-the-Christ!... Risen!... From among, those who are,…still / “Dead!”… *(both / physically: and spiritually-speaking)*…

And, that,…He, (Jesus) / today-stands: at His, Father’s-right-hand!... *(in-Heaven)*… Yes!...

The-Son, currently-awaits,…for / further-instructions; as to the,…”Day-and-Hour” / of, His-return: to,…Earth!...

Yet, this best-kept,…(“secret”) / only: The-Father, knows!... That’s-right!... Not, even,…The / Angels-in-Heaven: know of this, eventful-moment!... Amen.

So,…says-the / Son: and so, I,…(“believe”)!...

Dear-reader and friends. Were, it not,…(“true”) / then, our Jesus: would have, told us,…so!... Yes!...

As, well,…were / Jesus; to be, also,…(“God”)!... He, (Jesus),…would have / told-us-so!... Otherwise, our-exercised-Faith,…is-in / “Vain!”… Yes!...

Otherwise, we have put,…our / personal-trust: in someone, who has,…lied / to us: from the, very beginning!...

“Father-and-Son”,…two-separate-entities!... Yes!... Each,…uniquely-proper / and: each, donning,…their-own / “crown-of-righteousness!”…

One,…serving / the: Other!... Just, like,…we’ve been / asked-to: “serve-one-another!”… Amen.

To be, continued: starting with,…*(Acts 11: 21 )*…

“STAY,…TUNED!”…

Friends. Continuing-forward, in our studies!... *(Please-read, Acts 11: 21 )*…

Is, the,…”Hand” / of-our, Saviour: with you, also?... Oh’, how-I-pray,…so!... Amen.

Let’s, look at this man,…called / “Barnabas!”… Shall-we?...

The-church, in,…Jerusalem / sent-him,…to-this-city, called,…”Antioch!”… *(which-is-in / the country, of: Greece)*…

*(read, Acts 11: 22 )*…

How many, of us,…today / remain-faithful, to: Jesus?... And, are-so,…with / “Steadfast”: purpose?... *(read, Acts 11: 23 )*…

In,…the person,…of / “Barnabas”: we see, clearly,…a / “good-man!”…

Full-of-the,…”Holy-Spirit” / and,…of: “Faith!”… Having, left,…Jerusalem / to-go-to: “Antioch!”…

No, doubt,…this-man / was-baptized,…by, one-of-the / original-twelve!... *(hence-forth / receiving-thereafter,…this: “Holy-Spirit-Power”)*… Amen.

Note-well, how far,…to-and-fro / these, “devout”: men, actually-traveled!...

Barnabas, left,…Jerusalem!... To go, to,…the city / of: “Tarsus!”… *(which-is-in / Spain)*…

Only, to meet,…with / “Saul”: and to, thereafter,…travel-back / to: “Antioch!”…

Together, these-two-men,…stayed, for,…a-whole-year / at-this-city, of: “Antioch!”…

Yes!... Teaching, all,…who-would,…(”Hear”) / about: The-Risen-Christ!... Amen.

Folks!... The-Greeks, were very,…”mythical-believers” / having, named; various-celestial-bodies, with their own,…conjured-up / man-made-names!...

The very, “Stars-of-Heaven”,…were-their / “truest-inspirations!”…

*(forgetting-all-the-while / that, a-living-God; created,…these / very-same: Heavens)*…

That’s-right!... The, sight-and-vision,…of / many: in the end, remain quite,…”limited!”…

It’s why, the very,…Sun / was-worshipped: for many, centuries. And, still remains,…today / even-by: The-Mayan, culture!... *(for-example)*…

Yet, many,…despite, these truths / were-being: “converted!”…

It is, here at,…”Antioch” / that-these,…(“others”),…*(referring-to / pagan-practitioners)*…began calling / Jesus’-Followers: (“Christians”)!...

*(meaning / to-be: Christ-like)*…

Note-well, that,…within-the / “Household-of-Faith”: each member, called,…one-another / simply: “Brothers!”… Why?...

*(read, Acts 11: 29 )*…

Answer: Because, our,…Jesus / called-us: “His-Brothers!”… Amen.

Whereas, by,…contrast / our-living-God: calls us,…”His-Children!”…

Never, forget,…that / Almighty-God: *(Yahweh)*… He, does many,…”wonders-and-works” / by-in-and-thru, the very,…hands: of,…His-own / “remnant-class!” *(of believers)*... Amen.

*(read, Acts 11: 30 )*…

Dear-reader and friends. God-Willing!... Chapter, (12),…of-this / “Book-of-Acts!”… Shall-follow, sooner-than-later!...

So,…(“STAY,…TUNED”)!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

SHOULD-WE,…BUT / “BELIEVE!”…

Friends. Chapter, (12),…of-this / “Book-of-Acts!”… *(must-be-read / in-its-entirety)*… Amen.

Indeed, we,…today / use-this-word: “Amazing!”… *(way-out-of / context: and excessively, so)*…

But, in this case,…I believe / you’ll agree, that: “Amazing”,…are-indeed / God’s-own: “Feats!”… Amen.

Our,…Apostle-Peter / was-arrested; by the, Roman-King,…named / “Herod!”…

Once-again, we see,…Almighty-God / *(Yahweh)*: using, His-Angelic-Force!... Yes!... To do, ultimately,…His-Will… Why?...

Answer: Because,…”Angels” / are-our: “Mediators!”… Just, like,…The-Son / Jesus: is also, our,…”Mediator!”… Amen.

That’s-right!... They, travel,…*(upon-God’s / commands)*… To-and-fro, both the,…”celestial-and-terrestrial” / realms!...

God’s-own-Holiness, prohibits us,…*(humans / fallen-and-defiled: as we, stand-today)*…to otherwise, enjoy the / “de-facto”: presence of our, Creator!... Why?...

Answer: Because, unfortunately,…we / have-inherited: Sin!... Yes!... It, runs in our,…blood!... And, through our,…veins!... Is it, fair?...

Answer: We, are,…a-by-product / of: mankind’s-will. Although, God,…asked / man: to be fruitful, and to filled-the-Earth!...

Because, we are the result,…of / mankind’s-will: off-springs, inherit,…many / characteristics!... Yes!...

*(God’s-Will / by-contrast: desires, only that we be / perfect: and sinless. As He, is,…Perfect-and-Sinless)*…

Obviously, this isn’t possible,…right-now / as-we-stand: in the fallen-flesh, and blood,…state-of-existence!... Amen.

Not, only,…do we / “Look”: like our, parents… But, “spiritually-speaking” / we’ve – also: inherited, the act of,…(“Dis-obedience”)!...

Hence, consequences,…fall-into / place!...

Getting, back to chapter,…(12): Despite, man’s-best-efforts, to,…”chain” / our: Apostle-Peter!... We,…(humanity / as-a-whole) / are-no-match, for: the accomplishments, of the super-natural… *(powers-that-be)*…

There’s a deeper,…”Spiritual-Connotation” / here: lurking-behind, the story mentioned,…in / chapter, (12): Yes, sir!...

If,…and/only: (“IF”)!... You,…(dear-reader and friends) / happen-to-be: one of, God’s-own,…”chosen-and-destined” / will, chains-of-bondage: and many-gates, of various,…”confinement”: be, finally and most,…ultimately,…(“Loosened”)!... Amen.

*(note-well, that / (“IF”): is a word, found,…right-inside / the: very-word-of / “Life”)*…

Yes!... Life’s, truly about,…many / (“IF’s”): isn’t-it?...

Our,…Peter!... A, man,…”full-of-Faith” / and of many: “Good-Works!”… Preaching,…”Boldly” / The-Risen-Christ!... Amen.

Are you, doing so,…yourself / dear-reader?... Oh’,…how-I-pray / so!... Amen.

Angels, are most,…(“absolute-and-specific”) / in-their, fulfilling: (“Commandments-of-God”)!... They, typically,…don’t / stick-around: needlessly!... No, sir!...

They, tend-to-return,…to the / “Father!”… From,…whence / they-came!...

*(unlike / Demons: fallen-Angels!... These, left their, original-habitation / Heaven: and did so, without,…God’s-own / permission: hence, condemned-they-remain. Fallen, down-to-Earth!...

With, an appointed,…Day-and-Hour / of-their: utter-demise. It’s,…God’s / promise!... Amen. If you take, a moment to read / “Genesis”: you’ll find that, these,…Fallen-Angels / desired: our women.

To the point, that they,…laid-down / with-them: and the women, birthed,…(“Giants”)!... Yes!... Posing, six-fingers,…and / six-toes: disfigured,…”mutants!”… Why?...

Answer: Because, it’s not,…God’s-Will / being: accomplished. It was,…the very / Will-of-Fallen: Angels!...

Folks!... Everything, done,…(”outside-of”) / God’s-Will: ultimately, mutates-and-fails!... Amen.

Getting-back, to our / study: Just, like,…Jesus!... When, He,…uttered-the-words: “It,…is,…finished!”… He, also,…”returned” / to-the: Father!...

From, whence,…He, (Jesus) / came!... Why?...

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

Folks!... Truly, there is a,…”time-and-season” / for-all-things!...

Note-well, how being,…(”Silent”) / is-often-times: the best, option. *(read, Acts 12: 17 )*…

Jesus, was certainly,…(”Silent”) / when, He: was being, falsely-accused,…the-most. Why?...

Answer: Because, He,…(Jesus) / saw-the-big, picture!... Do, you?...

He, was shown,…(”The-Glory”) / which-awaited: Him!... Yes!...

Conditionally, so,…(“I-might-add”): Jesus, had-to-complete / God’s-Will… *(first-and-foremost)*… Amen.

That, night,…in that / Garden: those,…(”Angels-of-God”) / commissioned-to-serve: The-Son!...

They, were,…(“sent-down”),…to / Earth!...

Why?...

Answer: To, encourage,…our / Jesus!... Yes!... To,…stay-the-course!...

To, also,…show / our: Lord!... (“The-Glory”),…which-awaits / us: all…

*(should-we, but / believe)*… Amen.

Remember, God’s-own-Angels!... Yes!... They-both,…(“Lift-Up”) / as-well: (“Strike-Down”)!... At,…God’s-Will / and: Commands!...

*(read, Acts 12: 11)*… And,…*(read, Acts 12: 23 )*…

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

NEVER-STOP,…(“ASKING-KNOCKING / AND: SEEKING”)!...

Friends. This next-chapter, (13) / of-the: “Book-of-Acts!”… Is, indeed,…quite / lengthy!...

Never-the-less, together,…we-shall / study-it.

I perceive, that,…Almighty-God / by-using: His-Elect!... He, reaches-out,…to many / “Leaders”: within, our given,…local-communities!... Why?...

Answer: Because, if we’re able to,…somehow / influence, “These-Leaders”: in positive, manners. Then, chances are,…that / “indirectly-so”: we, will have also,…”reached-out” / to-those-whom: they-themselves,…”Lead!”… Amen.

As, so,…mentioned / in: *(read, Acts 13: 7 )*…

A,…(“pro-consul”) / called: “Sergius-Paulus!”… He, summoned,…”Barnabas-and-Saul”: seeking, to,…(“hear”) / The-Word, of: God!...

Yet, among-the-righteous,…(“others”) / lie-in-wait: yes!... I speak, of those,…full-of-much / “deceit-and-villainy!”… Sons-and-Daughters, of the,…Devil / himself: *(read-verse: 10 )*…

Yes!... Those, whom,…our society / esteems, as-being: “Intelligent!”… These, usually,…end-up-themselves / quite: “astonished!”…

At, the,…*(wonders-and-works)*…of / Almighty-God!... *(Yahweh / His-Eternal-Name)*… Amen. *(read, verse: 12 )*…

Dear-reader and friends. Note-well, how our,…living-God / (“puts-up”): with our, often-times,…”Stiff-neck-Ways!”… *(read, verse: 18 )*…

He, (God),…loves / us: enough, to,…tolerate / even-the-intolerable: behaviors, of,…His / chosen-people!... Amen. Praise-God!...

For, He,…is-so / “Merciful”: and, so,…”Patient!”… *(with, each-and-every / one-of-us)*…

Folks!... God,…”Fights” / our-battles!... *(read, verse: 19 )*…

Yet, we,…despise / His-Deeds!... How, sad!... Who-of-us, is,…truly / considered-to-be, a man: or a woman, constantly after,…the / very-heart, of: God?... *(read, verse: 22 )*…

Who,…will / do: (“All”),…of / God’s-Will?...

It’s, why,…”King-David” / was-so: “Highly-Favored!”…

Our, Jesus,…is-actually / an: Earthly-Off-Spring!... Of this, King!... *(read, verse: 23 )*…

And, as-so-promised,…Jesus, shall / soon-occupy: “David’s-Throne!”… Amen. *(This, will happen / during-the: “Millennial-Era”)*…

Friends. This,…”Message-of-Salvation!”… Has, been-brought,…by / The-Son!... First-of-all, to the,…(“Brothers”) / in: Faith!... Yes!...

The-Household, of,…Faith!... Then, there are the,…(“Sons”) / of-the-family: of our, patriarch,…”Abraham!”…

Then, last,…but-not-least / also, to: those among you, who,…(“Fear-or-Reverence”): God!...

How,…(“Ironic”) / that-those, who: lived-in, Jerusalem,…and-their / rulers: did not, recognize,…Jesus!... Nor, did they,…really / ever-understand: the very, utterances,…of all / the: “prophets-of-old!”…

Although, supposedly,…well-learned / and: well-founded, in the very,…”Laws-of-Moses!”… The-Jews, end-up-fulfilling,…(“Scripture”)!... How, so?...

Answer: By, ultimately,…(“condemning-our-Christ”)!...
*(read, verse: 27)*… Yes!...

Folks!... Jesus-of-Nazareth!... Was, indeed,…(“sent”) / by: His-own-God!... He, (Jesus),…came-down / and: carried-out, all that was,…ever-written / of: Him!... *(In-the / Old-Testament)*…

King-David, was,…”Holy-Inspired!”… And, wrote,…about the / soon-to-come: Son-of-God!... *(read, verse: 33 )*…

Yes!... It is, written in the,…(“second – Psalm”)!...

Friends. God,…(“passed-on”) / the: Holy-and-Sure,…(“Blessings-of-David”)!... Yes!... They, are,…(“set-apart / and: assured”): to the, only-begotten,…Son-of-God!... *(Jesus-the-Nazarene)*…
*(read, verse: 34 )*…

I close, this passage / today: by saying, that,…(“corruption”): equates-to-Death!... *(read, verses: 35-36 )*..

And, Yes!... Many,…(“scoffers”) / shall-be: astounded-and-perish!... Why?...

Answer: Simply-because, they refuse to,…”believe!”…
*(read, verse: 41 )*… Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

YOU-CAN’T,…CONTAIN / “CHRIST!”…

Friends. Tell me, have you ever,…(“begged”) / that, these-things: might be told, to you,…on / Sunday-Mornings?...

*(Please-read, Acts 13: 42 )*…

Yes!... The people, “marveled” / at-what-was, being; taught, in-the-synagogues!... Jesus!... The / very: Son-of-God!... Risen, from among the,…Dead!...

By, the very,…(“Resurrection-Power”) / of: His-Father, in Heaven!... *(Yahweh)*…

Could this, be actually,…true?... God’s-Promised,…”Messiah!”… Finally,…”manifested-and-revealed!”…

And, these,…(“Followers-of-Jesus”) / all-of-them: exercising such,…”Healing-Powers!”… Yes!... Unheard-and-unseen, ever,…before!...

Nor, ever-again,…(“I-might-add”)!... Yes!...

Dear-reader and friends. That, first-century-era,…(A.D.) / was-indeed: unique-and-proper!... Most, specific-and-absolute!... With, much,…”purpose-and-principle!”… God’s-Principles!... Yes!...

Publicly-pronounced, for all,…to / “Hear-and-See!”…

Whole-entire, cities,…at-a-time / were-gathering, together: to simply, (“Hear”) / The-Word!... *(spoken-and-taught, by: Disciples-of-Christ)*… *(read, Acts 13: 44 )*…

The ones, not,…converting-to-Christ / were-filled-with, much: “Jealousy!”… *(read, verse: 45 )*…

And, they began to,…”contradict” / what-was-spoken, by our: Apostle-Paul… Reviling, him!...

Folks!... In-my-eyes!... Much-the-same, continues to occur,…even / to-this-day!... Yes!... *(It’s – Satan’s / own: Subtle-Ways)*…

This,…”Dark-One’s” / own: Presence!... It’s, most prominent,…right-inside / our: places-of-worship!... All, but a small,…(“remnant-class”) / aren’t-being, trapped: in this, Devil’s-Snares!... Amen.

As, for the majority,…of-our / Christian-Communities: the bulk, of them,…have been / completely: “duped-and-stupefied!”… Yes!... Why?... And, how,…so?...

Answer: By, believing,…the-man-made / “Trinity-Doctrine!”…

Note-well, that,…Jesus / was-sent, to: The-Jews!... *(first-and-foremost)*… As,…(“God’s-Chosen-People”)!... Yes!...

They, were appointed,…to / (“Hear”): The-Son’s-Message!... But, these,…Jews / *(with-the-exception / of-some: “converts”)*…most / simply-thrusted-aside: the-gospel-message!...

Hence, as-a-consequence,…”judging-themselves” / unworthy-of: (“Eternal-Life”)!... And, so,…”Barnabas-and-Paul” / turned-to-the: “Gentiles!”… *(read, verse: 46 )*…

Praise-God!... For, the,…”Salvation-Message!”… Today, *(by-in-and-thru / the: “Internet”)*… It’s a wonderful, avenue,…by which / we-can-reach: the very ends, of this,…Earth!... Amen.

No one, ever would have,…imagined / say: forty, (40), years-ago / that, this: digital-avenue, *(mainly-used / for: malicious-mal-ware)*…could also, function: as-a-medium, for,…furthering-along: “The-Son’s-Message!”… Amen.

*(read, verse: 47 )*…

Dear-reader and friends. There are those, (“appointed-by-God”) / to receive: Eternal-Life!... Who-are-they?...

Answer: Those, very same,…who / “Believe!”… Amen. *(read, verse: 48 )*…

Indeed, often-times,…we’re / “driven-out”: from many, of our,…”districts!”… Never-the-less, our,…(“Steadfast-Joy”) / remains-forever-more!... *(read, verses: 50-52 )*…

I pray, that: “You, too,…come-to-see / the: (big-picture)!... For, it’s-framework,…is-much / bigger-than: this present-world, could ever,…(Contain)!”… Amen.

“DISCERNING,…THE,…DIFFERENCES!”…

Friends. Divided, we / stand. And, it’s why,…as-a-nation / we-remain: *(fallen-and-defiled)*… Amen.

Some,…(“side-with”) / the-religious-order. While, still-others,…*(God’s-Remnant-Class)*…side-with / “The-Apostles!”… *(read, Acts 14: 4 )*…

Who, do you,…suppose / “bore-witness”: first-and-foremost?... With regard, to,…God’s-Word / and-of: His-Exercised-Grace?...

Answer: Why, our,…Jesus / of-course: Yes!... The, very,…Son-of-God!...

Who,…”Followed-and-Furthered” / these-special-truths?...

Answer: Jesus’, own,…chosen-and-destined!... Yes!... His, own,…Apostles-of-Old!... Men, like,…”Barnabas-and-Paul”… *(read, Acts 14: 3 )*…

These,…”Specially-Selected” / individuals, were: “empowered-and-invoked”,…with-the / “Holy-Spirit!”…

It’s how, many,…”signs-and-wonders” / were-achieved!... Amen.

Folks!... Somewhere-and-somehow, we,…(“Jesus’-Faithful-Followers”) / shall-all-be: “Tested!”… Why?...

Answer: How, else,…can / God, *(Yahweh)*… Come-to-know, the,…true-stance / of-your-own: “hearts-and-minds?”…

Dear-reader and friends. It is,…”through-many-tribulations” / that-we, (who-believe): must enter, this,…”Kingdom-of-God!”…

And, if,…this is / so: then, that,…age-old / fabricated-fable: (“The-Rapture-Theory”)!... Yes!... This, too,…is / a: complete-hoax!... Amen.

God, needs,…us,…right-down-here / on: Earth!...

To, witness,…His-Mighty-Hand / at-work!... No, sir!... Don’t believe, that,…(“fly-away / Doctrine-of-Devils”)!... *(read, Acts 14: 22 )*…

Many, continue to,…”misinterpret-and-misunderstand” / God’s-Word!...

Yes!... The, over-all-tendency,…is-to-take, “Scripture!”… And, then,…(“literally-interpret”),…it!...

Rather-than, to seek,…its / true: “Hidden-Manna!”… Amen. Yes!...

Friends. There are many, deeper-spiritual-connotations / hidden-between, the-written-pages; of our,…Holy-Book!... *(The-Bible)*…

And, they are all,…revealed-by / (“Revelations-of-the-Spirit”)!... Yes, sir!... And,…(Not),…by-the-hand / of-any: man-or-woman!... No, sir!...

Many, are indeed,…the-fiery-darts / of-this: “Dark-One!”… *(Lucifer, himself)*…

The-Trinity-Doctrine, along with the belief,…of-the / “Rapture-Theory!”… These, are but,…just-a-few / of: His-Snares!... Yes!...

In the future, I shall attempt,…to discuss / more-in-detail: *(1st Thessalonians 4: 14-18 )*… But, for now,…just know / this-truth:

Being,…”caught-up-together” / in-the-clouds. To meet, Jesus,…”in-the-air!”… These, are but,…more / (“expressive-language”): not-to-be, taken,…(“literally”)!... No, sir!...

When, we,…examine-well / supportive-literature: like-the, (“Strong’s-Concordance”)!... And, we take,…(“a-hard-look”),…at its / definitions: we can, relate that,…these words / used: take on, other,…meanings!... Yes!...

For-Example: This word, of,…(“Clouds”) / is-interpreted-better: as meaning, a multitude and/ or crowd,…of / people. Yes!...


As-in: “Did you, see / that: (Cloud-of-Locust)?”… Swarming-about, that,…field?... Amen. It devoured, the whole,…corn-crop / in-less-than: one-day!...

And, this other,…word / of: (“Air”)!... It is, also,…furthered / defined-as: (“Spirit”)!... Yes!... *(please-read, 1st Thessalonians / chapter 4: 17 )*…

Are we not, often-times,…”caught-up” / in-the: (“Spirit-of-Christmas”)?...

BEWARE,…OF-YOUR / “ZEAL”…

Friends. When, we read,…chapter 15 / of-this: “Book-of-Acts!”…

What, can we,…”draw” / from-its: content?...

Answer: I, myself,…note-that / “much-discord”: existed, between-the-brothers,…even from / early-on: in the establishing, of these,…first-century-churches!... Yes!...

*(Officially-Called: The-Church-of-God)*… As, so,…stated / in-the: “New-Testament!”…

*(read, Acts 15: 1, 5 )*…

Folks!... Almighty-God, had made a choice!... That, by,…selected-people / such-as: Peter’s-mouth. These,…(“Gentiles”),…should hear / The-Word: of the gospel, and,…”believe!”… *(read, Acts 15: 7 )*…

Dear-reader and friends. The-Holy-Spirit, in those days,…was / “poured-out”: onto those, whose hearts,…and / minds: God, knew,…all-too-well… Yes!... *(read, verse: 8 )*…

Our, Apostle-Paul,…was another / fine-example, of: “servant-hood!”…

It is, by,…”believing” / in these: unpopular-truths!... That, we,…(“Jesus’-Faithful-Followers”) / cleanse-our-hearts: and our,…inner-minds!... *(Yes!... Our, entire / thought-process)*…

It’s all, done,…by / exercising: “Faith!”… Yes!...

*(read, verse: 9 )*…

The topic,…discussed-and-debated / between: The-Apostles, and the,…”Pharisees!”… Was, one of,…(“Circumcision”)!...

*(read, Acts 15: 1 )*…

Here, we see,…now / “Peter!”… Relating, the fact,…that / “circumcision”: was more so, of the,…”Heart!”… Than, merely,…a physical / ritualistic-act!...

*(done, to / new-born: males. Upon, their, (8th-day) / of-birth)*…

This,…truth / was being: taught!... A,…”Factor-Missing” / in the, understanding: of those, whom society,…called / “The-Religionist!”… Amen.

Yes!... Individuals, like our,…Peter / were: bringing-up, the topic,…of / “spiritual-substance!”… Yes!...

No, longer,…was it / necessary: to strive, so hard,…to live / by: the very,…(“letter”),…of these,…man-made / “Laws!”…

*(Moses’-Laws: implied-here)*…

For, all these,…”Laws” / only, proved; in-the-end, the fact,…that,…mankind / falls-short: every time. In,…fulfilling: them!... Amen.

*(Hence-forth / only-by-the, exercised-Grace; of,…God / can-we, see our,…”eternal-tomorrows”: manifest…Amen)*

*(read, Acts 15: 11 )*…

The,…”Truest-Mark” / of-any, converted believer: lies,…(“inwardly”)!... Yes!...

And, the-real-question,…to ask / ourselves, is:

“Has, our,…heart-and-mind / really-changed?”…

*(especially-after-hearing / The-Gospel-Truth: with regard, to our,…Risen-Christ)*…

Yes!... The-Father’s-Grace!...first-shown / way-back: in the, “Book-of-Genesis!”… When, God,…offered / the-first-pair: animal-skins, to,…replace / their-weak-choice: of using,…”fig-leaves!”…

*(to cover / their: sinning-bodies)*…

Thereafter, I think,…of,…how / God: shows, (“His-Marvelous-Grace”)!...

Shed-upon, the first,…”Murderer!”… *(Cain)*… How, God,…put-a-seal / on-him: protecting,…”Cain”: from – harm’s – way!...

Yes!... Even, though this man, (Cain) / killed-his-blood, brother: God, sees,…into-the-future,…enough / to want: to save, this individual.

And, for what purpose,…we may / ask?...

Answer: Perhaps, to prove,…in-the-end / that: even the, “descendants-of-Cain” / shall-have, their opportunity: to,…”Repent!”…

*(Yes!... Folks!... There’s-still-time)*… Amen.

And, scanning-forward,…in / time: God’s-Best-Example, of,…Him / “exercising”: His-Grace!...

Is, found,…in-the-act / of: (“Resurrecting-His-Son”)!... Yes!...

The-Son, (Jesus) / after-receiving, this: *(God’s-Grace)*… He, (Jesus),…now / in-turn: and in, kind!...

Invokes, all those,…who-will / lend, themselves: to-finally-believe!...

Believe,…what?... *(you-may-ask)*…

Answer: Believe, that,…The-Father / has-both: (“Anointed-and-Appointed”),…His-Son!... Yes!... To, ultimately,…(“Rule”) / over-all-flesh!...

*(and-do-so / from: “David’s-Throne”)*… Amen.

All-the-while,…The-Son / remaining-still,…(“in-total-subjection”),…to,…His-Father’s-Ruling!... Why?...

Answer: Because, there is only,…One / (“Most-High-God”)!... *(Yahweh / His-Eternal-Name)*… Amen.

Folks!... The-Son, by,…”contrast” / has-been: (“Exalted”)!...

Whereas, a,…living-God / Who: already, holds,…the,…”Most-High” / position: celestially!...

*(has-no-need / of-any-further: “exaltation”)*… Amen.

Jesus!... Today,…”over-sees” / many-other: (“powers-and-principalities”)!... Yes!...

Which, occupy,…(“high-heavenly-places”)!...

Somehow, our,…worldly-churches / have: misconstrued, this,…(“Fact”)!... How, so?...

Answer: By,…(“erroneously”) / claiming,…our: Christ!... *(As, being / God: Himself)*…

Friends. It’s,…The-Devil’s / best-deceit. He, (Lucifer),…”fogs” / the, hearts-and-minds; of those,…who / in-earnest, only seek: Truth!... Yes!...

We,…(“The-Believers”),…are / bottom-line: Satan’s-worst-threat!... And, if,…he / can-seduce-you; with his, half-truths,…and / full-out-lies: then, he’s,…managed to,…lead-you / completely: “astray!”… Amen.

So,…(BEWARE,…OF-YOUR-OWN / ”ZEAL”)!...

Because,…(“uncontrolled-and-unbridled”),…it only, leads-us,…to / total: confusion!...

Folks!... God,…”visits” / all-those-whom, He: can ultimately,…”take” / for: His-own, Name’s-Sake!... *(read, Acts 15: 14 )*…

Never-forget, that our,…Jesus / said-and-did: everything!... All-of-it, for the,…(“sole-purpose”) / of: Glorifying-God’s,…Good-Name-Sake!... Amen. *(Yahweh)*…

And, The-Son,…returns / to: rebuild-and-restore,…”David’s-Throne!”… *(read, Acts 15: 16 )*…

Note-well, as I come,…to a / close: That, Almighty-God,…always / uses: a-remnant-class!... *(read, Acts 15: 17 )*…

Remember, The-Son’s-Words: “Not, My,…will. But, Thy-Will. Be done. Yes!... On, Earth!... As, it-is-in,…Heaven!”… Amen.

Friends. The-Gospel-Message, is not,…for / everyone!... Why?...

Answer: Mainly, because,…not / everyone: will freely, “receive-it”…

Many, shall continue to,…(“rebuke-and-refuse”) / The-Son’s-Rule: over-their-personal,…lives!...

It’s why, The-Father,…has / already-chosen: a-destined-people!... For, His-Son!... Yes!...

A-Remnant-Class,…of,…people / Who: The-Son, in turn,…gladly-accepts. Why?...

Answer: Because, they have always,…”belonged” / to: The-Father!...

And, now,…The-Father / today: shares-them, with,…His-Son!...

Who, are these people?...

Answer: Those, who believe,…”these-truths!”… Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

PRAY-FOR,…ONE / “ACCORD!”…

Friends. For those, of you,…who / say: “We, aren’t-to-Judge!”…

I want today, to plead with you,…to / differ:

*(please-read, Acts 15: 19 )*…

Our, Apostle-Peter,…expresses / “Sober-Judgment”: Yes!...

Folks!... We, are all,…to / exercise: “Sober-Judgment!”…

In-and-with, all that we,…”say-and-do!”… Amen.

It was,…Peter’s / “Sober-Judgment”: that-they,…meaning / “The-Jews”: not trouble, these other,…”Gentiles” / who: were actually, turning-to-God!... *(Yahweh)*…

I-ask-you, (dear-reader and friends): As we, continue reading this,…chapter 15 / of-the: “Book-of-Acts!”…

What,…”things” / are-polluted, by these supposed: (“IDOLS”)?...

*(please-read, Acts 15: 20 )*…

Answer: Well, for starters. Let’s take, a-good-look,…inside these / “Catholic-Cathedrals!”… Are they, not filled with,…many / statues-of-their: “patron-saints?”…

Our, “hearts-and-minds” / are-polluted: by the thought, that these,…now-dead / individuals: somehow, are worth more,…than / we: who-are-Alive!...

Unknowingly, there’s an ever growing,…”fascination” / with-the-Dead!... And, there’s no,…stopping / it!... Altars, flowers, teddy-bears, Balloons,…and-the-like!...

We, rush to saturate,…a given place / where: someone, whom we knew,…once / has-now: Died!... Why?... When, a-sport’s-celebrity,…a / rock-star: or a movie-star, dies. The general-masses, “rush” / to: (“idolize-their-Death”)!...

T-shirts, hats, shoes and anything else,…that carries / their-image: vanishes, in-a-flash!... *(Capitalism-at-its / best: I-guess)*… I call it, “Vanity” / at-its-worst. And, should this,…”celebrity” / die: alongside of others.

These,…”others” / take-a-back: seat!... To the importance, of our,…”supposed-loss!”… Why?... Isn’t, every human being,…just as / “valuable”, in: God’s-Eyes?...

And, what about,…the / ”Buddhists?”… And, the,…(“Hindus”)?... Are they, not-also,…worshippers-of-(“IDOLS”)?...

I don’t know, about you. But, living this,…”carnal-existence” / but-once: is enough, for me. The, thought of,…”returning / re-incarnating”: into, some,…sort-of-other,…existence!...

Doesn’t really, “fascinate-me!”… *(sorry)*… Amen.

(“Digression”), instead of,…”Spiritual-Progression!”… It, seems to,…surround us / and: “Abound!”… Yes!...

Yes!... The Devil, is-indeed,…in-all-the / (“Details”)!...

How can we,…”change-the-world?”…

Answer: We, can’t!... Only,…”The-Anointed-One!”… Yes!... Christos!...

Jesus!... Appointed-by-God!... And, upon,…His / return: He, shall fix all,…that-is-broken!... Amen. Yes!...

Do you, think-that,…the / (“L. G. B. T. Q.”): communities, throughout,…our-modern-world / actually, see themselves: as being,…(“sexually-immoral”)?...

Answer: I think, not!... *(read, Acts 15: 20 )*…

In-the-name, of,…(“Tolerance”) / we’ve-accepted, what: Almighty-God, Himself,…calls: (“Unacceptable”)!...

And, it doesn’t seem,…to phase / any-of-us: one bit… No, sir!... How, sad,…indeed!... Why?...

Answer: Because, mainly,…it’s / “politically-correct”: and it,…”gains-votes!”… Yes!...

(“Popularity-Votes”),…and/or: approvals, are what,…apparently: truly-matters: to most, people,…of this,…world!...

Yes!... Never-mind, what our,…Creator / thinks!... His,…Son / tarries-in-coming: “anyways!”… *(and, so / they-think)*…

Some,…even / within, our-own; Faithful, groups!... These, very same,…have / (“gone-out”): from among, us!... Yes!...

And, they have,…(”troubled”) / our people, with many: “Unsettling-Words!”… Yes!...

Yet, their instructions,…to twist / the-minds, of others: did not, ever come,…from / any-of-us!... No, sir!...

And, so,…(“subsequently”) / millions-of-minds: have been, made,…completely,…”perverse-and-polluted!”… *(read, Acts 15: 24 )*…

“Word-of-Mouth”,…somehow, doesn’t / tell: the-same-truths!... No, sir!...

No, longer,…are / we: in one,…(“Accord”)!... *(read, Acts 15: 27 )*…

And, there is,…no – longer / this: “One-Ness!”… *(read, it-again: verse – 27 )*…

Did you know, that,…even / still, today; many people, of,…various-cultures: enjoy, consuming,…”cooked-blood!”…

Yes!... Often-times, made-and-prepared,…as though / it-were: “sausages!”…

As, well,…some / “tribes”: still-actually,…drink, it!... Yes!...

Immediately, after,…slicing / slaughtering: the throat, of a,…”sacrificed-animal”… That’s-right!...

In many, ways. Humanity, (as-a-whole) / hasn’t-changed: one-iota!... *(read, verse: 29 )*…

Guard-against, owning,…(“Sharp-Disagreements”)!... For, this,…in / itself: is-the-work, of the,…Devil / himself!... *(read, verse: 39 )*… Yes!...

This,…(“One-Ness”) / existing-between: The-Father and His-Son!... Our, world,…”contradicts” / yet, we must: “strive-daily”,…to achieve / what-appears: to be,…(“Unattainable”)!...

Why?...

Answer: Because, we are those,…who / believe: in those, “special-things” / which-are-even: “Unseen!”… *(by-the-naked / eye)*… Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...
