In reading it you will notice I touched on some sensitive spiritual issues I felt had to be addressed and will probably be controversial to many. But did not Paul say to Timothy in 2nd Tim. 14-15 kjv " Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."Friends we are in our in our last days and it is now time to "face up" with the truth or "face out" into hell and damnation. We've got to get real and right with God and stop playing church. In these last days, time is not on our side. To my Christian friends, the loneliest person in the world lies inside us and we don't know Him. That's the Holy Spirit! Don't you think it's time to meet Him?

---------------------------------------------

Congratulations on finishing your book and I’m excited for you. First off, let me tell you that editing your manuscript was a pleasant task because you clearly know what you are talking about, and you tackle a very interesting subject.
 -------------------------------
Writing isn’t as easy as some people make it seem. It takes patience, research, openness, and a command of language to be able to come up with something that is truly worth reading. On this note, let me mention some points in your manuscript that I believe are praiseworthy:
 --------------------------------
Simple and accommodating language. Given that your subject can be heavy and provoking to some of your readers, it is great that you don’t encumber them with an equally heavy vocabulary. The simplicity of your writing style makes your book easy to digest and puts the focus rightly on the intended impact of your topic rather than on the words you use to accomplish it

 Well-formed and well-enforced structure and content. I also must comment on the structure and content of your book. It was insightful and obviously well-researched. You present each chapter concisely with a clear-eyed logic reinforcing your main points with appropriate Bible verses. The arrangement with which you fashioned your manuscript was efficient as well; there is a sense of heightened knowledge as the reader advances from one chapter to    another.

Beverly Hills-author aims to bring readers closer to
Christ through new poetry book

BEVERLY HILLS CA. —TRINITY TATE Publisher and Author James Cartwright Jr. announces the nationwide release of his inspiring, new poetry book, “Let’s Make It Real.”

“Let’s Make It Real” is a book aimed at making the words paint a vivid picture of the soulful tone of the day – whether it be the restrictiveness, solitariness, willingness, permissiveness, tolerance and the moral of our changing religious culture. 

This is to express the unrelenting, intemperate and consuming effects of spiritual transformation and how people can be led from the right path or direction through shrewd or devious influence and variegation.

The author intends to express all this in cadenced, swingy, metrical words, shaped with accompanied unison sequences, which are put into figurative and non-literal imagery poetry.

The purpose of writing his brand of poetry is to express the signs and condition of these times without the slow, ho-hum, boring continuance, and redundancy of our present-day reading materials.

Readers are encouraged to skim over “Let’s Make It Real,” reread it and interpret the underlying meaning of each selection in the book as one searches for a closer, more intimate, and meaningful relation with Christ.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or www.barnesandnoble.com or  at www.amazon.com

 
Cartwright, who is based in Los Angeles, is the past president of Daniels and Cartwright Inc. He is an ordained minister, having traveled extensively in Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. When in the nation of Israel, his calling to the ministry came while in

Jerusalem. His ministry, "Just Us Ministry", is primarily involved in outreach ministries on skid row. It is servicing the needs of at-risk and impoverished communities in Los Angeles and surrounding counties.



DEC 26, 2015     Coming Book  "Let's Make It Real'

"Let's Make It Real" is a book aimed to put forth the imagery of words to state the soulful tone of the day as to the restrictiveness, solitariness, willingness, permissiveness, tolerance and moral of our changing religious culture. The purpose is to express the unrelenting, intemperate and consuming effects of spiritual transformation and how we can be led from the right path or direction through shrewd or devious influence and variegation.
It's intent is to express such in cadenced, swingy, metrical words, shaped with accompanied unison sequences, which are put into figurative and nonliteral imagery poetry.  The purpose of such writing is to express the signs and condition of these times without the slow, ho-hum, boring continuance and redundancy of our present day reading materials.

I press to deliver and drive home an arising, ascension, enliven and stimulated desire FOR YOU to skim over, reread and interpret the underlining meaning of each selection in one's search for a closer more intimate and meaningful relation with Christ. Hopefully, such method and technique will bring the response and desire for all to realize that we must face the realities of this life for our time is short and we must " Make it Real" in order to be real with ourselves.

"The book "I Believe"

James Cartwright
July 30 at 11:59am 


THE BOOK "I BELIEVE" IS FINALLY AVAILABLE. AND IT TOOK SOME TIME FOR ME TO FINALLY RELEASE IT FOR PUBLICATION (5 YRS) SINCE I WAS CONCERN ABOUT THE HARDINESS, BOLDNESS, BRASHNESS AND VALOROUSNESS MANY OF MY FRIENDS CAUTION ME ABOUT IT. BUT THERE WAS A DECISION I HAD TO MAKE BETWEEN MAN AND GOD.


The Lord gave me the visual modality, perceptivity, and gestate, to stop looking at our society through dark glasses and face up to what is really happening to and in our nation and God's house. I feel there is a link with Simon of Cyrene helping carry the cross of Jesus and we as a species of people carrying the Gospel to all without any hesitation, reservation or inhibition. . 
And although we as a race of people have suffered much in this life, it is through our suffering we know that God is real as we and our forefathers have depended upon Him through our many trials and tribulations. 
So the book "I Believe" is in bookstores and I pray you receive it in the manner I introduce it. These are very disturbing, distressful, grievous and burden, times as each of us are experiencing this spiritual warfare and if there is ever a time to speak out and boldly in God's name"Now is the time".

I'm dedicated to putting the Holy Spirit through God first in everything I do.

Beverly Hills author releases illuminating new Christian book 
Published July 28, 2015 | By Norie Enn Libradilla


BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — This week marks the nationwide release of “I Believe,” a new spiritual book by author James Cartwright Jr.

In “I Believe,” the author explains that throughout history, man has wrestled with the question of belief. From the time that Adam and Eve took a bite of the forbidden fruit, the question of belief has been with them and the generations after them. The 21st century Christians’ capacity in believing is limited only to his or her natural capabilities. In this book, the author reveals that Christians are not able to dig down spiritually. As a result, they cannot equal the belief that the Lord desires from them because the self interferes with that process. Open the pages of this enlightening book, and discover the author’s thoughts and readings on belief and Christianity.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at 

www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting

www.BarnesandNoble.com or www.amazon.com

Books are also available at West Angeles Christian Book Store 3045 Crenshaw Blvd, Los Angeles, CA. and the Word Of Life Christian Book Store 6321 West Blvd, Los Angeles, CA.

Mr. Cartwright is the past president of Daniels and Cartwright Inc., A Wall Street Brokerage Firm.  He is an ordained minister and has traveled extensively in Africa, Europe and the Middle East. When in the nation of Israel, his calling to the ministry came while in Jerusalem. His ministry, Just Us Ministry, is primarily involved in outreach ministries on skid row and servicing the needs of at-risk and impoverished communities in Los Angeles and surrounding counties.

"The loneliest Person in the world lives inside us!  And we don't even know Him.'" Quote from book


-----------------------------------------------------------
To The  Ministers Who Are Carrying The Word Of God 
 
Over the past five years I have held back in releasing a book, (I Believe) written by me through the revelation of our Savior. I was concern that the book was too critical of those responsible for delivering the message of God in the Church. But the Spirit of God kept nagging me to get it published as it had been accepted for printing by a reputable publishing company for years.  Finally it is being published and will soon be in book stores in late July.
 
There are three reasons I finally yielded to the Spirit and released it for printing. I pray you will understand these reasons for I'm not a leader or pastor of a church or hold any significant position in Christendom. Just a person who received the calling of Christ while staying in Jerusalem leaving the Wailing Wall one afternoon.
 
My first reason is because I've witness too many professed born again Christians confessing Christ on Sunday's and are a part of the world Monday Thu Saturday. My question has been why can't we control our mind and heart to that Christ-like devotion throughout the week rather than only on Sundays?  In studying the life of Jesus, I realize He also experienced similar disappointments. Are we at a point in the end times where because of our unbelief in practice and deeds, God is "Blinding our eyes and hardening our heart that we cannot see or understand".  That's what happen to the Jews in Isaiah 6:9-10 and  John speaks of it also in John: 12: 37- 40 when because of unbelief, Jesus went and hid from His followers because of His disappointment. They closed their eyes and they hardened their hearts in response to the message Jesus gave to them. Through their choice God permitted their eyes to be closed and their hearts hardened in receiving the truth preached to them. Yes their love for the world became so great, they choose to close their eyes and harden their hearts . Are we also at a point where we have taken on the ways of this life and world and prefer to be accepted by the norms and likeness of man and society rather than the word and teachings of Christ.  "For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God." John 12:43
 
Pastors and teachers of God, we cannot overcome the wickedness of this world without the aid of the gift (Holy Spirit) Jesus sent down from above.   If there is ever a time to lean and depend on Him it is now. That's my second reason in releasing this  book as it seem the church is moving more toward the "Grace" Jesus provided for us rather than the "Gift" He sent to dwell in us.  Upon His departure He blew on His disciples and stated to them to received the Holy Ghost and after wards required of them to wait to receive it.  He did that because He knew that although the disciples had been with Him for over three years, they yet would not be able to withstand the power of evil (Satan) without the help of His Spirit through God dwelling in them.  They all proved that by becoming evangelist and traveling throughout the world carrying the great commission message.    
 
My third purpose in sending you this message is because as with the disciples, you also were called to take on that commission and today that is an extremely ambitious, difficult, hard fought and rocky quest.  Here's a quote from " I Believe" taken from the chapter "The Burden Of the Pastor"  writing on the challenges of which you are confronted.
"That’s a burden you must be qualified to bear: and with the aid of the Holy Ghost operating in and through you, it can and should be done. That is your calling. WHY?


We have over nineteen millions people who are suffering from cancer; over twenty six million who are suffering from diabetes and over fifteen million dealing with severe depression. Many need you to give them hope through the Lord. There’s an average of seven hundred and fifty thousand people in this nation who attempt suicide each year with about thirty five thousand of them successful. Do you think the devil will save them?


We need you Pastors; for there is much work to be done! There are almost twenty four million people who use illegal drugs here in America and about twelve million people commit some kind of crime. The reason I’m stating this is to make our Pastors realize that these are lost people, who are desperately looking for hope. You can bring them that brighter outlook and fulfill that expectation in this life. Yes there is plenty of work your calling has for you to do".  
 
These facts are not unknown to you however, sometimes it's good to put in writing what you are dealing with every day. And it is also important to offer a suggestion of how ones burden can be lessen through God's revelation and ones experience.

TO THE MEN OF WEST ANGELES

THE BOOK "I BELIEVE" WILL BE OUT SHORTLY.  IT TOOK ME SOME TIME TO FINALLY RELEASE IT FOR PUBLICATION (5 YRS) SINCE I WAS CONCERN ABOUT THE HARDINESS, BOLDNESS, BRASHNESS AND VALOROUSNESS MANY OF MY FRIENDS CAUTION ME ABOUT IT. BUT THERE WAS A DECISION I HAD TO MAKE BETWEEN MAN AND GOD.

The Lord gave me the visual modality, perceptivity, and gestate, to stop looking at our society through dark glasses and face up to what is really happening to and in our nation and God's house. I feel there is a link with Simon of Cyrene helping carry the cross of Jesus and we as a species of people carrying the Gospel to all without any hesitation, reservation or inhibition.  And although we as a race of people have suffered much in this life, it is through our suffering we know that God is real as we and our forefathers have depended upon Him through our many trials and tribulations.  

So the book "I Believe" will be in bookstores the latter part of July and I pray you receive it in the manner I introduce it.    These are very disturbing, distressful, grievous and burden, times as each of us are experiencing this spiritual warfare and if there is ever a time to speak out and boldly in God's name "Now is the time".   We as men of West Angeles have received a great foundation of who the Lord is and how we are to live a Godly life.  We are the illustration of our pastor's teachings and he has led by example of who Godly Christian men are. (please get his tape on "You must have the Holy Ghost.")  

I have been blessed since I was taught very early through his father, Bishop J. Blake in San Diego who our pastor over the years emulates. It was his father while attending Oxford University who sent me money each month until I graduated.  So I have experienced what the Holy Ghost can do and I feel if there is a period to boldly call out to all, of the need and necessity of knowing that Spirit, which dwells in us, it is now. These are very troubling times and there is need for hope and conviction.

 Since having commune with you over these years (except while traveling) and getting the teaching that West Angeles has offered, I have come out with a book that has put much of my Christian experience and leanings into a publication.  From the time of a youth listening to Bishop Mason preach at Handy Park in Memphis to the teachings in the Temple, to Jackson Memorial in San Diego and to West Angeles, I have come (in my walk with the Lord) to a conclusion of what it takes to overcome the overwhelming  temptations we are confronted with in this life.

I pray as you read "I Believe" you walk with me as we travel through the tunnels of  knowledge, situations, emotions and sensations and receive that answer of what the Lord desires for each to do now.  It is never too late.       

(Note from the author)  
The prophecy of Jesus in the 24th chapter of Matthew (signs before the end)  is being fulfilled during these present days.  As you read the news, hear on radio and see on television the fulfillment in the execution of "man's inhumanity to man", we know these are the last days. The question is, are we prepared to enter into the next life and commune with our God, love one's and friends?  I don't have the answer, but I know most of our churches are not  teaching and emphasizing the key practices and activity we should be doing in preparation of that eventful time.

The Lord knew we could not manage our life in accordance to his teachings, so He sent a Helper to teach, inform, guide and instruct us of what is necessary to overcome the evil forces of which we would be confronted. Those deceptive forces who influences us to sin and take on the ways of the world.

  But do we really know Him and is He fulfilling the purpose He was sent?  I pray as you read "I BELIEVE" you will examine your faith and determine if you are fully prepared to meet our Savior in the heavens above. Do you need help in your belief?   I do and I'm seeking it (help) everyday.
 

 Note To All
“One of the loneliest persons in the world lies inside us whom we seldom acknowledges. He is the Holy Spirit and was sent down as a gift from above to comfort, teach, and guide us.”
Throughout history, man has wrestled with the question of belief. From the time that Adam and Eve took a bite of the forbidden fruit, the question of belief has been with us. In Mark 9:20–27, we have a father whose son is possessed with demons, and since the disciples were unsuccessful in healing his son, he asks Jesus for help. And Jesus states to him, “If thou canst believe, all things are possible. “This father answered the Lord by saying: “I believe, but help thou my unbelief.” The father was saying his ability to believe is not at the capacity of what is needed, and he wanted Jesus’s help to increase his level of belief.
We Christians in the twenty-first century unfortunately are operating at the level of this father. Our capacity in believing is limited only to our natural  capabilities. We are not 
able to dig down spiritually and equal the belief for which the Lord desires because Self interferes with that process

To My Social and Party Friends

It's been over seven years since I've attend one of those social gatherings and I must admit I miss the comrade of our socializing as we interacted with each other.   Life has been good to all of us as we're yet in the land of the living and still able to go forth and commune with one another relating on the past and making plans for the future.  I'm sure the gang is engaging in house gathering and possibly occasionally will drop in on the Townhouse.  (smile)  Over these past years I've been on assignments in Washington with the present administration and also with the United Nations.  So it has not been as entertaining as with "the gang" however, during those travels it has given me time to reflect, mull over and ruminate on the present and future. The future not with this earthly life as we only have "an appointed time": I'm thinking of that future everlasting life in the heavens.

  
Over the years we've had some very good times and I thank God for the friendship we've shared.  It has been rewarding, as we've formed a common bond of respect, concern, esteem, and regard for one another. That's what true friendship is about and I feel you all exemplified that; especially with those house parties I gave.  I thank you for your kindness, affection, compassion, generousness, thoughtfulness and accommodation.  No words in my heart can express the appreciation I feel for your kindred congeniality.

 
 That's why I'm sending you this E mail because as in the past I want to share with you something we all can seek to continue that comrade in our future home in the heavens together.   I shall return to Los Angeles soon and I will yet look for that friendship and social environment, but also I'd want us all to began preparing for that other home since it is much more beneficial,  meritorious and rewarding.  Check out my book and let's continue to have fun for there is preparation that must also be made.

                       
With much love.
Your friend always,

James



To my Business Associates and Friends,

In the world of the Derivative Off Balance Sheet Finance Market (Platform Trading, Historical Bond, Global Reset ect.) I've learn that one of the most admirable qualities one should learn is the practice of patience.  Over the years we in the Industry have had our share of such experience and this year is no different. Although there are great financial rewards in these type of ventures, the problem lies in their execution and the fulfillment of the many promises you hear. Few experience the financial rewards promised and as a result become disappointed in their efforts. It is known in the International Finance Market that some transactions do take place however, it's the established people who are connected that makes it happen.  

In the Christian World many are experiencing similar promises with little recognized results. Could it be that we Christians are not connected through the correct source to get the blessings we expect.  Well I'm not the person to answer that however I do feel that Jesus set the example for all to follow in order for us to get the blessing He has in store for us.. You notice I said not what you want but, what He expects from you.

 I look forward to our success in the Off Balance Sheet Finance Market and pray that we all are successful as we wait on those funding to come to fruition.  However, in the meanwhile let's make sure those blessing we're expecting come from the real source. If we can believe on the finance industry promises, why not also believe on Jesus promises.  I've written a book on that subject and I'd like for you to check it out.  As we experience these last days on this earth, let's make sure we are properly prepared for our next home as our blessings are guaranteed and our rewards are greater..
  
As stated on Facebook,"I Believe" is finally available for  purchase now. It is officially in book stores in July. In reading you will notice I touched on some sensitive spiritual issues I felt had to be addressed and will probably be controversial to many. But did not Paul say to Timothy in 2nd Tim. 2: 14-15 kjv " Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.  Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
 

Business Family, we are in our last days and it is now time to "face up" with the truth or "face out" into hell and damnation. We've got to get real and right with God and stop playing church. In these last days, time is not on our side. To my Christian friends, the loneliest person in the world 'lies inside us' and we don't know Him.  That's the Holy Spirit and I think it's time for all of us to prepare to meet Him?



The most important thing is to define who we are.
