"TO-YOU,…CHILDREN-OF-CHANCE!”....

Remember to be gentle, with yourself, and others. We are all,...("CHILDREN,...OF,...CHANCE"); and none can say why, some fields will blossom, while others lay down, beneath this Earth’s-Sun.

Care for those around you. Look past, your differences. Their dreams are no less than yours; their choices, no more easily made.

And give,...give in any way you can: of whatever you possess. To give is to Love. To with-hold, is to wither.

Care less, for your harvest, than for how it is shared; and your Life, will have meaning: and your heart,...shall possess Peace!....

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“NO-MORE,…SPOON-FED,…HERE-SAYS”…


Folks, Christ’s Resurrection, is the guarantee of our,…own.


Thank You, Father-in-Heaven,…”For the hope that, the Resurrection of Your Son (Jesus-of-Nazareth),…brings us, all (who believe); for now and for all of eternity, (yet future). Today, I put my complete trust in Jesus!”… Amen.


Scars, (dear-reader and friends), never seem to completely go away. But, neither do they tend to hurt,…any longer. I look forward, to our re-created and incorruptible bodies. And, what will we say,…about; our New Heaven and our New Earth?... (see, Revelation 21:4). Yes, we will have a new start.


Meanwhile, as we wait for the return of our Lord and Saviour,…let us remember, that; He rarely makes His presence known, in places or times,…expected. He typically appears, when and where,...we (His Faithful Followers); least expect Him. And, always in the most illogical,…connections.


The only way, we stewards of His gospel,…can keep true, to His Father-in-Heaven; is by being ready, for our Lord’s return. Remember, even Jesus doesn’t know,…the day; nor the hour!... It’s going to be a complete and total, surprise for everyone!... Yet, this fact is proof enough for the skeptics,…that, Jesus; is (Not) God, Himself,…as so many: erroneously have taught, for centuries past.


Otherwise, Jesus would be lying to us and even,…to Himself; by hiding this all too important, future historical event,…of His own: return to Earth!... Folks, God does not lie; nor does His only begotten Son!... If Jesus does (Not) know the Day, nor the Hour of His very own return,…then this proves; that He is uniquely proper, separate as an individual entity,…completely apart and different than our living-God, yet: One-in-Unity, One-in-Love and One-in-Cause with His God and Father-in-Heaven!...


Let us never deny, the already set-forth terms and conditions of mankind’s own eternal tomorrow,…all done; by Jesus’ own God and Father-in-Heaven!... Amen.


I pray, that He (Not) catch us,…in our unawares. Whatever road we are traveling on today, may webe always ready for Jesus-of-Nazareth,…to make Himself known to us; in new and surprising ways.


Lord, Jesus,…”Open our eyes, (spiritually), to see You more clearly,…as; our risen Saviour!... And, Your Father’s appointed King, to preside over David’s Throne,…ruling; over Your Father’s chosen, remnant people. I pray, that You be constantly alongside,…of each and every one, of us; as we strive in furthering along, all of Your,…already finished work. Please, be with us,…in every circumstance; of our daily lives!”… Amen.


Folks, Jesus can indeed be found. The real question, is; “Are you, willing to seek Him?”… I for one, shall proclaim Jesus’ Death,…and Resurrection; until the day of His inevitable return. (remember friends, only His Father-in-Heaven,…knows of this event)!...


Were our Jesus, to be God Himself,…and negate the answer; regarding His very own return, back down to this Earth,…this in itself: would make Jesus, out to be a liar!... Open your eyes, dear-reader,…this in it; of itself, is proof sufficient,…that Almighty-God is indeed; a separate and Higher Supreme-Being,…when compared to His Son: Christ-Jesus!...


The Son, always freely admits that,…all that He shares, with us; was first taught and learned, from His Heavenly Father (Jehovah and/or Yahweh, His Precious Holy Name). Yet, this world continues,…with their repeated; (“Spoon-Fed-Here-says”)… Folks, Jesus is (Not),…God; Himself!... The Son-of-God, currently sits at His Father’s right-hand.


Remember, too,…that, at times; our Creator may indeed allow, our personal resources,…to dwindle; so that we need to completely rely, only on His strength,…to keep going. Our needs, showcase His Power!... Our living-God, shall uphold us,…with His Righteous Right-Hand!... Is His Son, (Jesus); not seated there, already?... Exalted, invoked, empowered, recompensed and rewarded,…for His complete; and exemplary Obedience, toward His Father’s will?...


Jesus, didn’t have this standing with His Father,…prior to His crucifixion; or otherwise, there would be no need to declare,…His current: exaltation… And, if He were to be God,…as so many, erroneously profess; there would be no need, to further exalt,…an already: (“Most-High-God”)!…


Friends, let’s keep all-things,…in their proper perspective; role, order, rank-n-file, Glory and Honor!...Amen.


Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“IN-THAT-COURSE,…OF,…THAT-QUEST!”…

Folks, we corrupt ourselves,…by means of our own; deceitful-desires…(see, Ephesians 4:22). Let’s always remember, that we were created in the likeness,…of our living-God!...(verse, 24).

Just like His Son, was also created in the image of,…Almighty-God!... But, friends,…this doesn’t mean; that we are God, Himself!... Anymore, than,…Jesus; is God, Himself!...

A mirror, reflects our likeness,…exactly; yet, it is made up of polished glass,…a by-product: of sand, (its original constituent). The same is true, with us. We were created, by Divine-Design,…to mirror perfectly; our Creator!...

Yes, branches of the same Tree,…yet; each one displaying our own leaves. Each blossoming its own flower, although all happen to belong,…to the same constituent: of that one trunk and/or tree. We often rush to conclusions, it’s been our inherent down-fall,…as humans-beings.

All, done in the name of feeding our insatiable hunger,…that of wanting to know; “all-things!”… And, (“IN-THAT-COURSE,…OF,…THAT-QUEST”), we have inherited a curse,…called; Sin!... We’ve disobeyed God and His original instructions. Yes, it’s all because of disobedience. Isn’t this why, we ourselves chastise our children?...

Yes, friends,…we are chastised by God; because He Loves us. Spare the Rod, spoil the child!...

Let us put away, this falsehood thinking,…that indeed; we know it, all. Nothing could be further from the truth. Pull yourself up, from this Devil’s snare. Rushing to conclude, has been one of this Dark-One’s,…best weaponry. He uses it daily, against us,…(Jesus’-Faithful-Followers)!...

And, this old-serpent knocks down,…millions of his subjects; into this Abyss, with the lure of us wanting always,…to know: what is good, from evil. Tell me, (dear-reader and friends); how’s it working for you, so far?...

Are you not, puffed-up with your own,…putrid-principles; and have you not, hardened your hearts,…with your own: haughtiness?... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“THIS-WAS,…DONE-FOR-YOU!”…

Folks, let us not give opportunity to our biggest Adversary, (Satan, himself),…and to his, demonic-insurgents; let no corrupting talk, come out of your mouths. But, only such as is good,…for building-up (or edifying); as fits each occasion, that it may (in the end),…give grace: to all those, who hear us!...(see, Ephesians 4:29).

Friends, our Faith is blindly,…exercised; but, with much hope,…behind it, indeed; it is through hearing the Word-of-God, that we either believe it,…or not. If we choose to embrace, what we listen to,…then it begins; to take root and seeds itself, into our minds!...

Once cultivated from a reflected thought, it begins to mature into a grounded belief. This Word-of-God, then proceeds to embed itself,…within the inner-chambers; of our hearts. Soon, there-after,…these deep chambers; begin to over-flow abundantly. To the very point, that all stored knowledge,…begins to spew-out; in the form of wisdom, by means of our lips!...

Yes, (dear-reader); we are those, who freely profess and openly testify,…to God’s-Word!... We have been forgiven, by our living-God,…through the already accomplished deeds; of His only begotten Son!...(Jesus-of-Nazareth).

Yes, Jesus’ own God and Father-in-Heaven,…does all the forgiving; because His Son, willingly Obeyed all that was delegated,…unto Him: to fulfill. Jesus met His Father’s criteria. Jesus, knew there would be,…many riches; He was foreshown, what His Father’s recompense,…would ultimately be; given to Jesus, in return for His own compliance,…to such arduous: requests!...

The Son, became humanity’s own,…”Sacrificial-Lamb!”… It was God’s call, to be like this. Yet, millions ignorantly continue to blend the two,…as if they were; one in the same person.

To those, who choose to believe in a,…”Triune-God”; just know that, you make void and annul completely,…the very set-forth terms; of Almighty-God, regarding our eternal tomorrow. God’s terms, required the shedding of blood,…necessary for making atonement; only a direct descendant of God, could meet this stringent criteria,…of being blameless!...

Yes, only His Son,…was, what; finally sufficed our Creator!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“OURS,…IS-NO,…VAIN-DREAM”…


Is your life, (dear-reader); perfect, powerful,…possessing infinite, possibilities?... Where are your wonderful-deeds, in this Earthly pilgrimage?... Are you, daily,…amazing those; who surround you?... Is there another, like you,…on this planet?...


Yet, we profess to be,…”Christ-like”; or Christian!... All-the-while, in our minds and hearts,…we don’t possess; any of the above mentioned virtues. Are we those, who faithfully follow the Son-of-God?... Yes, Jesus-of-Nazareth,…a willing offering; unto His God and Father-in-Heaven!... He tasted Death, for you and me.


Yet, Death could not hold Him,…in its embrace; He tore its bars, asunder,…and rose: triumphant, over its terrors. The Son-of-God, will bring many more,…out, from their self-imposed prisons; very-shortly. For, He has been given the very keys,…of Death and Hell; as His Father, bestowed this reward,…unto His only begotten Son!...


He’s become wonderful, in His ascension,…to His Father’s right-hand; a powerful-position, within the celestial-realm. Second, in command,…only to His God and Father!... Yes, Jesus today,…rules; over all powers and principalities, in high-heavenly places,…as well: the lowly-dark-ones. Just, as His Father has ordained,…Jesus, our appointed King; shall preside over David’s-Throne!...


Ruling over His Father’s-Remnant-Class. During the Millennial-Era, Jesus will further prepare us,…spiritually; polishing and well-honing all of our rough-edges, in spiritual-understandings. Yes, His Father’s-Kingdom is still the subject,…at hand. Through Jesus’ accomplished merits, humanity has been reconciled back unto our Creator,…in fellowship; all because of His virtuously shed, and atoning-blood,…in Calvary!...


We too, (in the not, too distant future); shall stand, in the very presence of our Holy-God!...(Jehovah and/or Yahweh, if you prefer). Our Jesus, is there,…today; standing firmly at His Father’s right-hand. He is, (Not) on God’s own Throne,…as this world; so erroneously professes. Yes, the Son-of-God is still making intercession,… for His Father’s-Elect!...


There would be, no need for all of this,…were Jesus; to be God, Himself!... I pray you see, the lies you’ve been fed,…throughout your entire, life-span; there’s religion, then there’s,…reality.




Jesus, is still influencing individuals and even whole dynasties,…who in earnest; seek only, Truth!... Through His Father’s extended Grace, the Son will be able to stretch-forth,…His hand; across the centuries of old, and control the destinies of nations,…and of mankind: eternally. And, that’s not all. In great measure, when He returns,…His Mighty-Works; will be visible around this entire planet!...


Not, just,…in few and separate places; as is witnessed today. He will show Himself, and all of humanity will marvel. Jesus, shall be, (as He stands, even today); extra-ordinary, Majestic and Sublime!... He will reign, as the wonder of Almighty-God!... His Father-in-Heaven, could not be more pleased,…with His Son’s; exemplary Obedience!...


(“OURS,…IS-NO,…VAIN-DREAM”)!... Nor, is it an imaginary-vision. Jesus-of-Nazareth, lives to rule,…in regal-royalty; over our New-Earth, as promised. Joyous are those, who consult and follow,…Jesus’ counsel. We will walk, in His Light-of-Truth,…and be; spiritually-successful. Even, if we may not always,…be; in His Father’s-First-Ranks!... Amen.

Izzy!...

“LIFTING-UP,…OTHERS”…


These darts,…of the Devil;
Will,…not penetrate.
The Souls,…of His Faithful;
In Victory,…they concentrate!....


Religious fads,…have come and gone;
As to others,…we seem “Foggy”.
Not digestible,…and old-fashioned;
Unlike-most,…never groggy!....


In His,…balances;
We’ve,…been found.
Not wanting,…but in service;
With Jesus, to Whom,…we’re bound!....


What else,…can we do?;
We’re not,…willing to perish.
Going-on,…just as long;
As Christ,…is there:
To,…cherish!...


He’s Just,…and shall Judge;
Sparing His,…Death’s destruction.
For His-Elect,…and their sake;
He shortens-days,…and grudges!....


He,…must come;
So,…let us pray.
For,…one another;
For,….this Day!...


He’s,…our Lord;
And,…is near.
So don’t,…you worry;
Not,…even fear!....


(“LIFTING-UP,…OTHERS”);
With heads-high,…and rejoicing.
As we,…see our Deliverer;
I hear,…Trumpets voicing!.... Amen.

“WHAT’S,…EATING,…YOU?”…


In a moment of truth, the wealthy realize that,…they have worked so hard; for so little. They have invested in the passing, not in the permanent. What makes death so hard, is the evaluation of what we lose,…by it. Folks, we leave everything behind. All that we have built, the people we have controlled,…the prestige; we have acquired. Death strips us bare, and reveals us for who,…we truly are!...


Am I a fool, in God’s eyes?... What label would He attach to my life?... The power of possessions, is that they give us,…a feeling of control. But, we as disciples,…face another folly; the folly that says, “God doesn’t care.” We are tempted to believe that, if we follow our Lord Jesus,…renouncing all our possessions; we may not have enough to survive on. Worrying, is one of the besetting sins,…of Christ-followers!...


The reason is not hard to discover. The terms of discipleship are demanding. To obey the call, is to trust Christ completely,…but, what are the implications; of such obedience?... Financial questions also loom large. If I say good-bye, to all my possessions,…will my Lord; really meet my needs?... My head assures me, that He will,…but, my heart; is not quite, certain…(please see, Proverbs 12:25)… Physically, this is so. People get ulcers, not so much from what they eat,…as from; what eats them!...


Anxiety, also steals emotional peace,…and removes; spiritual-assurance!... Amen.

“GOD’S,…CHOSEN,…CITY!”…

Vast armies are not gathering around the city of Jerusalem, as of yet. But, we are absolutely persuaded that,…the process; has already begun, and that it will end with the devastation of this chosen city. This 21st chapter of the, (Book-of-Luke), very closely resembles that of,…(Matthew 24),…where Jesus; lists a great number of signs, which clearly mark His return to Earth,…in this present dispensation: and age!...

The disciples of Christ-Jesus, at the time,…were completely oblivious; to this new era, which would shortly be introduced,…after the Day-of-Pentecost!... But, His prophecy in (Matthew 24:6); quickly came to pass, in 70 A.D.,…when Titus: and his Roman army, over-ran Jerusalem!...

The armies of which Jesus spoke, will indeed be gathered to Jerusalem. But, it will not happen until the latter half,…of the tribulation period; however, it is also very clear that,…multiple nations: are already making their presence known, in Israel. Yes, all of them trying desperately to make decisions,…in regards; to this very choice, piece of real-estate!...

We generally think, of our apostle Paul’s warnings in first and second Timothy,…regarding these present-days; as applying to the spiritual and moral declension, of all mankind. Scriptures are unequivocally, applicable to the nations of our day,…who completely disregard; the truths concerning Jerusalem!...

Many, have departed from our Faith,…giving heed; to seducing spirits, and “doctrines-of-devils”… Speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot-iron…(see, 1st Timothy 4:1-2). The perilous times are here, right now and today,…all around us; even the blind, can see this is true.

Millions, living in the information era,…ever learning; and never really able to come, to the full knowledge of the gospel truth. That’s right, men and women alike,…resisting the truth; because of their corrupted minds, and most reprobate concerning our Faith!...

But, these very same shall proceed no further,…for their own folly; shall be made manifest, unto all men and women of this present-planet…(read, 2nd Timothy 3:1 & 7-9). Most Bible scholars agree that, Jannes and Jambres were the two Egyptian magicians,…who, resisted Moses; and duplicated the first three (3) miracle signs, which God gave to Egypt,…in an effort: to introduce them, to His unmistakable Presence!...

There did come a time, however,…when; they could proceed no further. And, could no longer produce those illusions. Paul declares that, these two individuals were examples of those,…even today; who, would,…(“resist-the-truth”)…

It’s most apparent to me, that many of the world-leaders of our present-day,…could also be included; among those who, “know (Not) our living-God!”… And they couldn’t care less, about the fact that Jerusalem belongs,…to our Creator!...

Though, God’s-Word clearly declares that, “The land, (of Israel), shall not be sold for ever; for the land is Mine!”…(see, Leviticus 25:23). Amen.

“WHAT-A-TRUE-FRIEND,…MEANS-TO-ME”…


In times of blessings, we need to focus,…on our living God; the very One who provides, and not just on the provisions themselves. The stability we find in His Son (our Christ-Jesus); can calm our troubled hearts, in times of translation,…change and fear: of all the unknowns. The character of a true-friend, is the character of a giver,…and that kind of friend; in itself is, one of the greatest gifts,…we: could ever receive. A true-friend is a gift from Almighty-God.


Tell me (dear reader and friends); who are you, God’s gift to?... Allow the creativity of our Heavenly-Father, through His Son,…to; surprise you. He can provide and deliver, in ways that are,…beyond; our wildest imaginations. Even in the most difficult times, of our present life,…we can; be confident in the never-failing, goodness of our Maker!...


This is a valuable reminder. Just as there are no insignificant people, in the Body-of-Christ,…so there are; no insignificant ministries, if they are performed in Jesus’,…Name!... Today, I embrace my ministry, one dedicated to all the forgotten. And in turn, I know that,…my faithfulness; will never be forgotten, by my Heavenly-Father!...


To be able to cross ethnic and racial barriers, with the Grace of the Son-of-God,…is not as easy; as it sounds. Both sides carry presuppositions, whether accurate or inaccurate,…about the other. Both sides have nagging doubts, even fears,…about the other. Both sides carry a certain amount, of baggage,…based on; what they have felt, heard, seen, experienced,…or: supposed. And fighting through all that emotional baggage, is only part of the problem!...


A person must first, be willing to commit to this fight!... Amen.

(“DEAR-READER,…AND,…FRIENDS”)!...


Dear-reader and friends, please show me where our Bible says,..."Jesus is God!"... When many were murmuring regarding who Jesus was, many thought He was "Elijah", who had returned from the dead. Others, still believed that,…He was simply a Great Teacher and/or Prophet. But, when Jesus approached our apostle Peter, and asked Him directly,..."Peter, who do you,...think; that I am?"... our apostle Peter, then responded,..."You are the Messiah, the Anointed One, the Son of our living-God!"...


And, then,…Jesus commended Peter, for his answer,...because; Peter had been enlightened by our Father-in-Heaven, with this truth. Peter, did (Not) say,..."You Jesus, are God!"... Yet, Jesus only praised Peter,...for getting it right; for answering correctly. Let's be clear on one thing, I'm (Not) re-writing history here, nor am I attempting to change the Bible. I am though, wanting to bring others,...to the point; that they begin to reflect, question, examine themselves and what their preachers are erroneously leading them, to believe.


You see, institutional religion, is what Jesus was against,...from the very beginning. He's become a "stumbling-block" even among, the brethren of this Faith. There's much division, and very little real unity between us. ...


("If you've seen Me, you've seen the Father")!... Here, Jesus is expressing Himself, in a figurative-manner. The very word of ("if"); denotes questionable standings. It’s a word, that in it of itself,…is mostly; a matter of circumstance, in any given sentence we utter. It’s not an emphatic, bold, nor firm statement. Think about this folks, we have the word (“if”),…even in the very center; of our word, (“Life”)…


You see, my dear brothers and sisters-in-Christ,...many still today; don't see Jesus, for what He truly is; (there’s an old saying, that goes like this; “I can’t see the trees, for the forest is in the way”); Jesus remains today, our Mediator between our Creator and us, our High-Priest, our Intercessor in prayers, our King who shall rule and lord over us, in His Father's-Kingdom!... (And, presently He stands at the right-hand of God; Jesus is (Not) on God’s own Throne!)…


The right-hand of God Almighty, is indeed a very Powerful position,…to occupy. As God’s right-hand-man, Jesus is second in command,…only; to our Creator, Himself!... Jesus is the Word, and/or the very spokesperson, who in a perfect and flawless manner,…He; represents His Father-in-Heaven!...




Satan, once a great "Angel-of-Light"; works in very subtle ways, and is ever present, even in the translating and the rewriting of our Scriptures,…throughout the ages. It's not so much, that God's-Word is indeed, infallible,...it's more so, that; humanity throughout the ages, has plugged in their own versions, all to suit their hidden agendas, to lure the masses into their religious institutions.


Ours, is (Not) an all tolerable Faith,…as many of today’s, modern (“Inter-Faith-Groups”),…would have you believe. God hates, idolatry; yet Catholicism and its many, “knock-off”, branches thereof,…have perverted the real truth of our Holy-Scriptures. I insist that, God's own Holiness,…is what impedes us humans; from otherwise being present (de-facto), with our Creator.


To not believe, that mankind has not attempted to delve his hands,…into the original, manuscripts; is to border arrogance and ignorance. Even our Bible, is not a complete and total representation,…of all that was ever written; regarding the things-of-God!... It was decided, by kings-of-old,…what was; and what wasn’t to be included and bound,…within this precious Book!...


Yet, mankind believes himself,…to have figured-out; our otherwise immeasurable God, our unfathomable Creator,…our unconfined: Supreme-Being!... (Jehovah and/or Yahweh, His Precious and Holy-Name)… Folks, the very moment we start believing that we have God,…figured-out; is the very moment, we begin to develop a sense of complacency,…that: truly hinders our further reverencing, and stuns any further potential,…for spiritual-growth!... Amen.


God has always worked, through others, (Prophets, the Holy-Spirit, His Son and the like); to reach-out to mankind. But, no human-being has ever seen God, (other than Adam and Eve), and lived to tell about it. Sure, there are a limited few mentioned in Scripture,…that; walked with God, and indeed saw Him,…but: all was done, in the Spirit,…of things. And, (Not) in a “De-facto”,…manner.


Another fine example of "figurative-speech", is when Jesus says that,..."The Father and I, are One!"...


Yes, indeed,...One-in-Spirit; One in mindset, One in wanting all to come to repentance and be Saved,...One-in-Unity!... Yet, we all have our unique and proper place, in this Universe, even our own “Crown-of-Glory”, is promised. And just remember always, to identify who,…is saying what; before we begin to take a stance, on what we are to believe.


When we see Jesus, expressing Himself,…by saying emphatically,…("My Father is Greater, than I"); well, this leaves no room for any guess work,…in my eyes. If the Son-of-God, tells me that His Father is (“Greater”),…than Him,…either we believe Him; or we don’t!... That decision, is left up to you,…(dear-reader and friends).


Many, may have indeed perceived our Jesus, to be as if here were,...a god; after all, no one else has been able to replicate His deeds. But, metaphors verses literal language, and who is saying what,...is part of our daily challenge; we must continue to prayerfully seek, for clarity in our Lord's Light,…which ultimately dispels: all confusion...Amen.


Folks, by visiting my site,…you will then; be able to really recognize my stance on this subject-matter. God Bless You, and again thank you for your time spent,…in reading; this lengthy passage!... Praise God, and to Him be all the Glory,...forever and ever; Amen!...


Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“COME,…BE-MY,…FRIEND”…


In the midst of my own battles, with bitter losses,…I have also gained; significant blessings with friends like you (dear reader); yes, you my most unlikely of sources. True-friends are friends, of the heart,…indeed. I speak of those few, whose devotion and compassion,…care and concerns for us; outweigh their concern for themselves. Many people find themselves fortunate, to have one or two,…true-friends; in their entire life-time!...


Some, don’t have,…even that. These very same, live much of their lives,…in isolation; feeling alone, even while in the presence of a crowd. Perhaps this is true, because we often view friendship,…through; the wrong end of the telescope. Instead of entering into a friendship, to see what we can give,…or; what we can do, for another person,…our tendency is to; measure and weigh the value, of a relationship,…by what: we can gain, from it!...


To have friends, you must first of all,…show yourself; to be friendly!...(please see, Proverbs 18:24)… We cannot be self-centered and full of self-pity,…if we want real friends; because that attitude will prevent us, from giving ourselves away. My point is simple, we have to be willing to,…give of ourselves; to be a friend. Once we learn this, we will begin to see,…the true comfort; and encouragement, real friendships,…bring!... Amen.


Your Friend,

Izzy!...

"WORDS...OF...WISDOM"


Remember, every time you open your mouth, in the presence of a person who has an abundance of knowledge,…what you're doing; is externalizing to such person, the exact amount of knowledge,…or lack of it: which you, yourself may possess. It is characteristically true, that people who possess a..."thin-veneer"; regarding their educational or cultural importance, typically are found trying to give the impression,…that; they have much knowledge. Such people usually talk too much, and listen to little. He or she, who flees my advice,…the very same; often don’t enjoy following, in my footsteps.


Anyone who has not experienced, what I have in this present-age,…is likely; to not read my advice. No one individual, (whether male and/or female) has sufficient experience, education, innate ability, and knowledge,…to ensure the accumulation; of great wealth, be it with words and/or deeds,…without: the cooperation of others! ...


Our immediate culture, possesses a potential-power,…of becoming greater than others; only when organized, in definite plans of action,…and is directed: towards an agreed upon, objective. Lack of loyalty is one of the great causes, of failure; in our present way of life. We tend (Not), to despise all of our ill-vices,…but, rather; we despise most, all those who hold ... no virtues. When fanatics, reach other gangrenous brains,…the disease is almost, incurable. The Atheist is preferable, to the fanatic; because it obeys to some degree, his or her own conscience,…to do good; more often than not. Whereas the latter, tends to end up often able,…even; to kill! ...


A generous heart, is defined as one who is winning,…others; with much affection. There is a certain pleasure in reproaching, an ingrate person; as they favor those, only whom they dispense-daily. The highest price, that one can pay,…for any one thing; is to ask for it,...by saying, please!... Let us never change, our Christian-Faith,…for any disbelief; let the beautiful things of Christ-Jesus, meet us in the middle,…of this road: we all call, Life!...


No incredulous and/or bad argument, could ever truly support,…God’s Truth!.... True-Happiness does not consist, in many possessed things,…but; in the way, we enjoy them,…though less: than first imagined. Life, it teaches us,…that; we cannot be truly happy, but at the price,…of some: ignorance. Many are those, who do not understand,…because; they themselves are not looking, for more ... happiness!...


The first teacher of philosophy, which took humanity by complete surprise,…was that old-serpent; (Lucifer) himself!... Paradise, and Philosophy,…are nothing but; common-sense in costume, leisurely-labeled. The great fortunes, which come suddenly,…always bring; some suspicion. Many believe in a blind fortune, which ordinarily becomes blind,…to those; who caress-this-concept, the most. Glory, to many,…is like a poison; to be taken in small-doses. Glory, is like working in the kitchen,…where; we should not always, see the manipulations necessary,…for the preparing: of our plates. Who could ever deny, that even Glory,…is more than a mere exaltation-of-sorts; but that it rather, suits us just fine,…as our ultimate award. Lucky-lads indeed, we are,...but; to receive its virtue! ....


Seldom, are any thanks given,…even; when we receive, what we do not deserve. Gratitude for the good, we receive from the hands of others,…often seems; to demand of us, resignation for the evils,…that these same, initial-hands: have committed, in secret,…prior to giving, to us. Whoever wants in this life, all things to their total and complete liking,…will have; much to contend with, regarding various untold troubles,...in due-time!...


Severe it is, judging a father,…his son; (as it was, with God and His only begotten). But, never is it, as severe as a child,…judging; his or her own, father or mother. Yes, our children, tend to sweeten penalties,…but; they also make, more bitter misfortunes. Your children are not yours, to call. They are children, of this present-life. They do not come from you, but enter through you,…into this present-realm; and though they are with you, they do not belong to anyone,…really: except to our Father-in-Heaven!...


You may give them your love, but not your,…thoughts. You may house their bodies, but not their souls,…because they live, in the house; of tomorrows, where you cannot visit,…even in your wildest and surrealist-dreams. You can make an effort, to be like them,…but; seek not to make them, like unto thee,…because; life goes not backward, nor tarries,...in yesterdays. We are but, the Archers,…of which; our children are as, living arrows,…launched. So, let the tilt in your hand,…arch-highest; toward their own happiness, and not just always,…towards: your own! .... Amen.


Your friend and brother in Christ Jesus;
Cooperating with Divine-knowledge:
Alongside our King, in His Cause!...

Izzy! ...

“FACING,…WHATEVER,…COMES!"...

I am dabbling in fiction,…but, it’s not a major part; of my postings. I’ve begun to realize,…however; that this style of writing, can truly carry-out my intended purpose,…very effectively, through fiction; since, Christian fiction novels,…speak to the heart: rather than,…to the head.

Fiction,…is entertaining. Well-written fiction, is gripping. As readers, we’ll stay up until 2:00 a.m.,…to finish; a good novel. But, I have a greater goal,…than simply entertaining my readers!...

I want to help you,…grow; Spiritually!... I recognize that authors, (in general); have something of a bully-pulpit, for communicating their World-views,…and values: to their readers. But with that opportunity,…comes; a danger. Just what World-view and values,…is an author; communicating?...

At best, most contemporary novelists,…present a wishy-washy; World-view!...

At worst, they sow negative values,…and unhealthy attitudes, in the hearts; of: their readers. I desire personally, to set a whole new standard,…for fiction. I want to use my talents, to communicate my Faith values,…to my readers.

I’m blown-away, by the Power,…of Jesus’ story; as I’m transported back, to the first-century. To Jerusalem, Germania, Rome and Ephesus. I live with Christ, as He struggles,…to live-out; His Faith in the midst, of pagan societies!...



I feel the terror, of His enemies,…as He faced, His foes; in various arenas. Above all, through Jesus’ experiences,…I’ve learned; countless lessons of courage. I trust that my passages, will speak to your heart,,,,as Jesus-of-Nazareth; has spoken to mine and to millions, of other faithful-followers,…and readers: of God’s-Word!...

My goal, is not to offend anyone,…who doesn’t share, my belief in Jesus, (The Son-of-God). But, at the same time,…I no longer hesitate; nor find myself,…keeping silent!...

I’ve been a frustrated coward,…long-enough. Today, I go on a quest,…seeking the same level of Faith; as our martyrs-of-old. Courage is not something, we can manufacture,…by our own efforts. But, when we surrender,…whole-heartedly; to Almighty-God, (His Father, in Heaven),…He then: gives us the necessary courage, to (“FACE,…WHATEVER,…COMES”)!... Amen.

Your friend,

Izzy!...

“WORDS,…OF,…WISDOM!”… / VOLUME V


The pride of those, whom society declares as small,…is to always, speak of things; that involve answering,…(“Yes”)... And, in contrast,…those whom we deem, to being,…(“Big”); never really utter, (“Yes”),…to the things: that truly matter, in this present-age!...


Anger, is (Not) an expression,…as much as; it is a swelling of sorts, of our inner-soul. And, all-things that appear swollen,…tend to give-off; the impression of being,…(“Big”); but, truly I say,…that, even this: is simply the evidence, of an unsound-mind!...


Gold, is likened to our women,…in that; although we men, often speak ill of them,…they remain: most desirable. As acid, serves to prove the purity of Gold,…so does Gold; serve to prove, mankind’s truest and corrosive nature. Yes, folks,….Gold; although the finest of all metals, is also the greatest of all,…corruptors!...


One ill-spoken word, can hurt more profoundly,…than any; double-edged sword. Humanity, holds over the,…(“Beast-of-Burden”),…the advantage of; the spoken-word. But, the animal world is preferred,…when our words become scarce; lacking in good-intentions. Speech has been gifted to mankind, by Almighty-God,…for the expressing; of our inner-thoughts. But, words are much like,…the leaves, on a tree; when in abundance, very little fruit is present,…between them!...


Discretion with words, is worth more than,…eloquence. Of, those who are infatuated with their own words,…we cannot expect; any real good-works. And, those who imply many words,…to explain themselves; of these, be very wary,…because they are like, the Octopus; who hides his true-presence,…in much ink!...


Often times, the words that we should have used,…while, in the Spirit; don’t present themselves, until it is,…much too late. Our greatest passions, are sometimes seen,…as; incurable diseases. And, the things that could come to cure,…our passions; is often termed, as truly dangerous, detrimental,…and most deleterious: to our inner-soul...


Yet, the lack-of-passion,…results in stupidity. These passions, I speak of,…when, well-honed; and finely polished, can then be called,…devotions. Yes, friends,…passions are ever present; even within those whom,…have renounced them. Those of us, who flee sin,…simply because, it is prohibited; inwardly remain, the truest of sinners!...



Tell me, dear-reader and friends,….why is it, that we wretched-sinners; spend all of our lives, sinning,…to only then, begin confessing: over and over, again and again?... Even though, I may remain alone,…I shall never; relinquish my free-will thoughts. The independence of my thoughts, is like the noblest of all,…aristocrats.


We own, our inner-thoughts,…on which ground; germinates nothing estranged, although the very execution,…of our inner-thoughts, may indeed be: very foreign to all of those, who surround us. And, in closing,…remember always; that forgiveness is the truest-form of revenge, for all good men and women,…alike!... Amen.

Izzy!...
