Introduction

I'm like my Savior, Jesus (when referring to my demeanor)....He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him (Isaiah 53:2). I don't consider myself handsome, but rather just a man. True beauty in anyone, be it male or female, lies in the heart where one can't see that beauty with the naked eye. Jesus, wasn't what some may consider, handsome (physically), but we all are very much aware He is the most beautiful person that has ever walked this earth! When one carefully observe Jesus' heart by His teachings, by His lifestyle, and by His ways, anyone in their right mind will see the most beautiful-perfect-person existing. Of course, I (nor any one else) have attained a total pure heart yet, but I'm (and everyone else loving Jesus) working on obtaining a pure heart. It's a life long process improving ourselves, huh? But that being so, is why we all need Jesus to forgive our short comings/sins. Anyway, I'm saying all that to say, I'm not stuck on myself but I strive to have a heart like our Savior Jesus. Moreover, I'm not fond of my pictures. So, I guess that satisfies the question, 'who am I?'.
Solomon says to fear God and to keep His Commandments; this is the whole duty of man.
So, I'm basically a man that do just that.... I live fearing God and doing my best each and every day to keep his Commandments. I truly believe Jesus will be returning soon. Therefore, I make a point to witness to whomever the Holy Spirit prompts me to do so. We have to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.
I enjoy being outside in nature. This includes jogging, swimming, & camping with scuba diving if the opportunity presents itself.
I hope to be able to travel and see more of the world our Father made in the future.... Again, I guess that satisfies the question, 'who am I?'.
What I'm looking for?: I seek simply friendship. I say friendship because one has to be friends before lovers. Faith in God (through Jesus) with a pure friendly relationship, is the foundation that could lead into a extremely strong marriage.

Essays

What I'd like to do on a first date...

We can decide together what is good to do or go on initial date; cross that bridge when we get to it. Just as long as we are comfortable.

My past relationships have taught me...

Life's experience has taught me to understand true love comes from the heart and true love sustains/remains through the good times as well as the bad times that life may have.....that's one good thing past relationship has educated me on. No one can make another person love them. Buying a bunch of material things for someone, or going a lot of places with someone is nice to do, but it will not justify true true love. What if you don't have money to buy or go places??? Can you still be happy and comfortable with that other person??? Can the character of that other person keep your heart and desires strong (if not stronger) as when you initially met them? If you can say, "yes" to those two questions, you may be on to something.
Past relationship has taught me that if the person you love doesn't love you as you them, that means that person isn't your soul mate and it's time you move on to be in position to find your soul mate (if that's your lot in life). I have witnessed people get so co-dependent on another, they become afraid to be on their own; they are afraid to be alone. God is to be fore front in your heart. I learned "co-dependency" observing others. So, the most important thing I have learned from past relationship(s), is that true love will last; true love come (reciprocated) freely and there will be a infinitive supply (never ending) feeling of trust and security in both parties involved.

To me, being an Adventist means...

I don't want getting involved in any denomination. Nevertheless, Adventist appears to be in harmony with the truth that comes only through and by Jesus Christ. Jesus has said, "if you love Me, you will keep My commandments."........these commandments can not only be found in Jesus' actions but in the book of Judges 20 as well. And that is what Adventist means to me.

In five years, I see myself

....I'll cross that bridge as I get to it. I hope Jesus will have come by then. Meanwhile, I will do my best to get those who don't know Him to get to know Him as their personal Lord and Savior these next five years.

My favorite Bible passage is...

I love all scriptures, but few I naturally ponder and one of them is Isaiah 43:13 -
"...Indeed before the day was, I am He; And there is no one who can deliver out of My hand; I work, and who will reverse it?"

I like this verse because God reveals His omnipotence (all powerful), omniscience (all knowing), and omnipresence (everywhere at one time). There is NO spirit, be it man, demons, or satan himself that is more powerful or stronger than our Father, God. He (God) existed before the recordings in Genesis! God existed before He made the world and everything and everyone that has, that is, and that will come in this world. It's written, God is the author and finisher of our faith. It's also written that all things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made (Jn.1:3).
It's a pity the world is swayed by the fallen angel, satan. That old serpent has changed for the majority of people (majority of people unknowingly) the day of Sabbath to a Sunday breaking the fourth commandment written by the finger of God (my Father)! Nevertheless, God is still Holy and God still continue to reign.....God tells us He continue to reign and will always reign in Isaiah 43:13 by saying ".... I work and who will reverse it?" The answer to that question is no one, no spirit can stop GOD. No one can reverse what God has did and what He will do. Trust me you who are reading this. (By the way, I appreciate you taking time to read all I have written too. I hope I'm saying something that will straighten your faith in Him) Trust me you who are reading this: God will do what He said He will do!It's written"....heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.....". But anyway, that is a reason I like this verse. This verse has even more truths in it, but I'm not going to go into that now. As far as my grammar is concerned, I'm aware English dictates capitalizing the word, 'satan', but I intentionally use small letter because I despise that spirit which trys to work against our Father.
