“WITHOUT-FAITH,…WE,…FAIL”…

What happens at the moment of Salvation, when Christ-Jesus becomes our,…Saviour?... Answer: “He also becomes our Lord. And, as the Master of our lives,…He then, has a right to govern what,…we do!”…

He, takes-up residence,…when we are; “Saved!”... And, that means we will change. He, continually works to remove sinful attitudes and behaviors,…replacing them with; His Spiritual-Fruit...(please see, Galatians 5:22-23).

If we’re truly,…”Saved”; our character will become more. Christ-like,…over time. And, our desire,…will be to obey; Him. This doesn’t mean that, we’ll never sin or stumble. But, the overall direction of our lives,…will be one of; Obedience!...

At times, our understanding,…will be slow or even faltering; but, Christ,…never gives-up ; on us. He reproves us, when we exhibit,…a lack-of-Trust!...(please read, Mark 4:40). But, He also,…commends; our progress…(please see, Matthew 16:15-17).

Jesus’ objective is to firmly establish our Faith, so He can accomplish,…His-Work; in and through us. Dear-reader and friends, just remember this,…always; that, (“WITHOUT-FAITH,…WE,….FAIL”)!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“ONE-DAY,…IN,…ONE-HOUR!”…

I clearly see, (in you, dear-reader and friends); a long-line of Faith, in active expectation of our Kinsman-Redeemer,…to show-up. But, the years have lengthened into centuries,…and still; He does not come. Mankind still today, continues to look forward,…for He, (Jesus-of-Nazareth); in whom all the promises, of His Father-in-Heaven,…will be fulfilled!...

Meanwhile, the shadows deepen,…in those dark-closets; where we have kept, all of our skeletons,…so well hidden. Captive, many remain,…in the iron-furnace; of their own devices. All yearning for this ray-of-Light!... Their reality has not come, their Deliverer has not yet,…appeared; not yet, have they been able to come out,…of their personal wilderness; to be loosed from their self-imposed prisons, the very slavery from which they have longed,…to be freed!...

Where is this land-of-rest and spiritual prosperity?... Again, the centuries drag-on. The time goes by, with leaden feet,…to those who; look for their Messiah, to appear. He comes, (Not),…although; there seemingly have been, many types of Christ,…along the Way!... Who of us, will ring the gladsome-chime,…of prophecy?...

Who, will at last,…sound-off; who will set-forth the announcement of Jesus’ arrival?... Yes, friends,…this weary-world; is still left, waiting. But, Almighty-God, (Jehovah and/or Yahweh, if you prefer); is not slack, concerning His promises,…as some of you; count slackness!...(see, 2nd Peter 3:9). But, He is at times,…indeed; slow.

He has purposes, to place into effect. And, Mighty-Counsels to,…”bring-to-birth!”... And, He takes His own sweet time. As His clock, shall ultimately strike,…on that Day and that Hour; nothing will fail, no sir!... Not one, iota,…shall fail. All will be done. All, will be fulfilled. His Son’s coming, will transpire,…and the promise; will be complete!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“WALK-WITH-WONDER,…IN-THIS-BREEZE!”…

Oh’, how our world,…from the beginning; has been steeped in darkness, morally and religiously. Yet, the Son-of-God, journeyed here,…from on high. The wise men, saw His Star rising in the East. They hastened to the place designated, (where is your place, in this planet,…dear-reader?); and found the Virgin, in a stable,…cooing a lullaby: to the Babe, upon her bosom!...

Almighty-God, (Jehovah and/or Yahweh, if you prefer); had not forgotten His promises. He, (Jesus-of-Nazareth); was the long-looked for Seed, of our Supreme-Being,…destined to crush the head; of humanity’s foe and loosen mankind, from this this Devil’s grasp. Here was and still stands, today,…our Kinsman-Redeemer!...

Listen to He, in whom His Father-in-Heaven,…is so well-pleased. Jesus, peals forth the future Glory and Greatness of His own role,…and destiny; as our Sovereign-Saviour!... We, (His Faithful-Followers), are merely helpless humans, (much like, newborn-babes); yet, in perfect union with His God and Father!... Yes, our Mighty-Creator has reconciled us back,...unto His Bosom; because He is well-pleased with His Son’s,…Obedience!...

His Son, our Saviour,…signifies; His indivisible unity and sufficiency, with the very One,…who sent Him: down to us. We can do nothing, without Father and Son!... Jesus, is completely dependent upon His Father’s-Power,…to fulfill His; own personal destiny. As we are, also dependent upon the Son’s-Power,…to; fulfill ours!...

Our living-God, cannot fulfill His Divine-Counsels,…without; the cooperation of others. The manifestation of these marvelous-wonders, is still future. From its beginning, to its end,…stupendous miracles; will be revealed. God, will once again,…dwell, (defacto); with mankind. But, further purification, further fine-tuning and polishing,…must occur, first!...

Hence, the Millenial-Age!... The Son-of-God, will teach us,…then; how to smooth-out all of our rough-edges, regarding the spiritual knowledge and understanding,…of all-things. Yes, Jesus will prepare us further,…yes, His Father’s-Remnant-Class; will finally meet, our Maker!... And, we shall then,…walk together; in the cool-breeze of each afternoon!...

Great, are the mysteries of godliness,…as even the Angels; desire to look deeper, into the things of Almighty-God!... They are indeed, Divinely-Marvelous!... Who, of us,…could fully explain; the inter-weavings of our Maker, and His inter-actions with humanity?... What of the, “warp and woof”,…of this God sent, Child; wrapped in swaddling clothes, laying in a manger?...

Remember this. Jesus, was (Not) born in a Manger,…so much, as He was; placed in a manger. Oh’, and what of the heights to which He,…later rose?... Again, dear-reader and friends,…what will you do; from where you have been, placed?... Will you also, rise to every occasion?... Or, will you simply lay-down,…beneath; the Earth’s-Sun?...

Remember, the parable of the Sower!... And, the result of every seed,…as the seed, was sown; in various types of terrain. Remember, who the Great-Sower,…truly is; and question whether you, (just like Jesus); can also become, that fertile ground?... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“KEEP-LOOKING,…KEEP-LONGING!”…

Friends, things on the ground below,…look very small; to an airplane passenger. Likewise, some of us saints, (Jesus’ Faithful-Followers); live so high in Christ-Jesus, and have such deep,…sweet-fellowship, with Him: that glittering objects of this planet, hold no charm for us. Yes, our eyes our blind,…to the things, which are visible; and to the many perishable, other sights!...

But, we remain with eyes-wide-open,…toward those things; which are even, unseen to the naked-eye. In today’s informational world, we are informed that astronomers,…by means of their powerful-telescopes; behold with wonder, myriads of stars and planets,…quite invisible: to our limited vision. Yet, we (the believers), thru our Faith in the invincible Power-of-God,…can explore endlessly; many worlds of beauty and wealth!...

Yes, Glorious, Surpassing and Bewildering,…worlds; unknown and unthinkable to ordinary folks, even to some professed,…Christians!... With this Faith of ours, off we go,…to the shining-highlands; of our Father’s-Glory!... What hinders you today, (dear-reader and friends); from meeting His Glorified-Son?...(Jesus-of-Nazareth).

The eyes of our Bridegroom, are set upon some choice individuals,…whose gaze-upward; is steadfast and immovable. These very same, remnant-people,…behold an open-door; into this mentioned, eternal-Glory,…enticing them, to fight-on: homeward. Yes, there is a fixedness in our Faith,…purpose and hope!...

Let these others, worldly in their ways,…continue to swerve and question; to criticize and condemn, to grow cold and formal,…worldly and proud; as we, (the despised few), continue looking and longing intently,…for the return: of our Saviour!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“THE-SILENCE,…BETWEEN,…WHISPERS!”…


Conversation is (Not), always necessary. Folks, I believe in our living-God,…although; rarely, will you find me,…attending these modern-day, churches. Have you never wondered, if quietness is the absence-of-noise,…or; if it’s the gentle voice, of our Creator,…calling us: to spend time, with Him?...


Remember always, that you are the true Temple,…where; He (Jehovah and/or Yahweh, His Name), indwells. I truly believe, that there are facets-of-God,…we discover; only through, stillness. I have learned, my pivotal lessons-of-life,…in; quiet moments. It’s in this quietness, that I have received,…the most assurance; of my very own, forgiveness from Almighty-God!...


In quietness, we first come,…to; God’s own Throne!... In quietness and reverence, we first worshiped,…Him. In quietness, we (The Faithful-Believers), heard His call,…to serve. Today, It is in quietness,…that; I find real-peace, when I find myself,…troubled. In this silence, I remember to learn,…more; about the mind, of His only Son,…our Christ-Jesus!...


It is here, repeatedly,…that I find healing; for my spirit. Quietness,…brings me strength. And rest, bestows peace. Are you, (dear-reader and friends); not tired of the endless commotion, and the unending demands,…heaped, on us: by affluence and technology?...


I yearn to return, to (“THE-SILENCE,…BETWEEN,…GENTLE-WHISPERS”),…of our living-God!... Yes, friends,…simply; be still… Amen.


Your Friend,

Izzy!...


Folks, to Almighty-God,…be; all the Glory!... Let us praise, His Son Jesus,…for His sacrifices; in our behalf!... Amen.

“APPEALING,…TO,…YOU”…


Variety in denominations cannot, be of God. Who, desires unity among (His Faithful),…without; compromising His Truth. It is necessary today, therefore,...for us (His disciples); followers of His Son (Jesus) to search,...for the Truth: among so much,…confusion!...


Unfortunately, some sincere believers,…feel that, such a search; is relatively unimportant, because we are all,…One: in Christ-Jesus!... Others feel that, it is divisive and sectarian. But, a careful reading of our Holy Scriptures (in both Testaments),...makes it clear; that these are (Not) unimportant details but, Truths,…dear: to God’s-Heart. Although, this remains hidden to many!...


Is it not possible, to get back to the simple,…New-Testament pattern; and put it into practice?... I believe,…it is. The Churches of God should be One, linked together,...in a Divine-Unity; and kept together, by means of,…united elders!....


The call of God is, on us. The Spirit of God, is moving and we must obey. Let us come, into being again; in the fellowship of the Son (Jesus),…of God. By God’s-Gracious help, we will continue; beyond this day. Bearing witness to the whole,…of God’s-Truth!...


And in particular, to this important subject,…of God indwelling, among mankind; in the Spirit!... I firmly believe, in the Spiritual-House of God,…as seen; in the New-Testament. (I-APPEAL,…TO,…YOU),…to write to me; if it is your longing, to be found,…where God dwells: among His people, by, in and thru,…His only begotten Son, (Jesus-of-Nazareth)!...

Let us all, continue worshiping and serving,…according to His Son’s; clear pattern!....


Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“MY-FATHER,…IS-GREATER-THAN,…I”…

Folks, our gospel is (Not),…mankind’s gospel…(see, Galatians 1:11). We are those, who receive these good-news,…not from any man; and/or woman. No, sir!... We are those, who receive the real-truth,…through; the very revelations of God’s-Son!...(Jesus-of-Nazareth)…(verse, 12).

Please, notice well,…how our apostle Paul; denotes the real distinction between Father and Son, in verses (15, 16). Friends, it is Almighty-God who draws us,…near; toward His Son!... And, no one can reach the Father,…except, he or she; goes “by, in or thru”,…the Son!...

Yes, they are inter-connected as One-in-Spirit,…One-in-Love; One-in-Unity, One-in-Vision and One-in-Cause!... Both, are desiring most,…that mankind, come to our senses; realize our putrid-principles, repent in earnest,…and finally receive: this free-gift of Salvation!...

But, the first step is,…acknowledging that, we are indeed; in dire need of being Saved, even from our own,…destructive-deeds. And, don’t forget that,…they are both; uniquely-proper, separate from one another. Both, Father and Son,…each deserving; their own Glory, Honor and worship!...

Yes, each praised for their own specific role. Each, donning their own,…”Crown-of-Righteousness!”… To merge them, as One in the same person,…is to ignorantly, annul and make void; the very terms set-forth, by our Creator,…regarding our: eternal tomorrow!...

Please, don’t deny the Father,…His Son’s own existence; by down-playing the suffered separation, between Father and Son,…that occurred: on that horrendous Roman-Cross, at Calvary!... “My God, My God,…why has Thou; forsaken Me?”…(Jesus, speaking). Why, would we want to be misled,…if Jesus, is indeed God, Himself; as so many, erroneously profess?...

Who, is Jesus crying-out,…to; if indeed He is not taking, a submissive posture,…when addressing: His Supreme-Being?... God, is most up-front with us,…with all truths; He’s not an Author of confusion. Clearly, Jesus remains even today,…in complete “Subjection”; standing at His Father’s right-hand, in Heaven,…even as we speak.

Folks, the Bible is not designed to confuse,…but rather; to bring spiritual-clarity, to our minds,…dispelling: all fabricated-fables and man-made messages.

Yes, all of it done,…for your sake and mine; not so much, for their own.

Don’t deny the Son’s incessant and fervent, “subjection”,…toward His God and Father-in-Heaven!... Upon Jesus’ baptism, a Thunderous-Voice from Heaven,…was heard; “Listen to My Son, in whom I (God, speaking); am well-pleased!”… If we are to believe this event, as being nothing short of real-truth,…then again; we find God, speaking of His Son,…two separate: and uniquely proper, Divine-Entities!... Not, one in the same person…Amen.

And, there is no questioning,…in my heart; regarding Jesus’ emphatic statement of, “My Father is Greater than,…I”. Amen.

P.S. Finally, in the process of rightly dividing the Word-of-God,...we must always ask ourselves; who is saying what, about whom. Let us all, continue to strive in keeping all-things in their proper perspective,…and context. Many, for centuries past,...have taken the figurative expressions; of the many different writers, within our Scriptures,...and have erroneously converted, there zealous-declarations: into tall-tales, and man-made,…"doctrines-of-devils!"...

Your Friend,

Izzy!...
