Script for today: PDCP- 12/20/14- “Sent To Save, Not To Judge!”

Posted on

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. (‭John‬ ‭3‬:‭17‬ NIV)

For The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth, committed His beloved only begotten Son to the earth, dispatching Him to dwell in the midst of humankind, not for the purpose of pointing the finger of condemnation at them, or denouncing them, nor was it to pronounce them guilty, and then pass a sentence of punishment upon them, but to come to their rescue, by delivering them out of the eternal punishing fire, setting them free, with an emancipation proclamation of redemption, that includes an escape clause from certain death and damnation, through Him, The Savior of humankind. (John 3:17 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The Creator of everything has provided us, humanity, with one way to escape certain eternal death and damnation, its through His Son, The LORD Jesus Christ, who came, “to seek and to save” a lost and without hope, if not for Him, humankind. Blessings…

Script for today: PDCP- 12/19/14- “God Is Personally With Us”

Posted on

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭7‬:‭14‬ NIV)

As a direct consequence of you, oh king Ahaz, being afraid to trust and try The Lord, per His direct request and command to you, and because you are also full of false humility, The Sovereign LORD God Almighty Himself will affix His personal signature to a confirming manifestation, a sign, with the message of redemption, for all people everywhere, thus, obligating Himself to fulfill it in this most spectacular and miraculous way: A young, undefiled, pure woman, having not yet been with a man, will become pregnant, without having been with a man, and she shall bring forth and deliver, by giving birth to, The Deliverer of humankind, He is The Divine Immaculate Son of The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, and she will call Him by this Name, Immanuel, which means, God is personally with us. (Isaiah 7:14 PDCP)

Bottom Line: What the prophet Isaiah was prophesying and looking forward to, we now can look back to, as we are now given the opportunity to be able to personally experience everyday, the manifestation of the presence of The LORD Jesus Christ, through His Spirit, The Redeemer of humankind, God Himself, in our lives.

Script for today: PDCP- 12/18/14- “Live Just, Live Right, Live Just Right!”

Posted on

To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭21‬:‭3‬ NIV)

To be virtuous and to walk blameless before The LORD and humankind, ends up being the most important principles we can follow in this life. It’s also what is most pleasing to Him; therefore, it is the most appropriate, honorable and acceptable thing that we could ever offer up to The LORD God Almighty, for it is not in the degree or amount of what we may give up, walk away from, avoid, abstain from, abandon, forgo or eschew, but it’s all in the way we live and comport our lives. (Proverbs 21:3 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We can never buy, earn, work for or give enough, in order to qualify, satisfy, please or be acceptable to The LORD, but, we can, with The LORD’S help, be filled with His justice and righteousness. We can, choose to be in agreement with Him, by walking in obedience and accordance with, His greatest desire for our lives. And then, thereby, have the capacity to live, Just Right! Blessings…

Script for today: PDCP- 12/17/14- “I’m All In, With My Whole Heart!”

Posted on

I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. (‭Psalm‬ ‭119‬:‭10‬ NIV)

I, therefore, completely surrender my entire being, not holding anything back or in reserve, but with a deliberate diligence, abandon myself wholeheartedly, to serving and worshiping You alone, The One True Sovereign LORD God Almighty; so, my dear LORD God Almighty, I urgently and with a sincere heart, humbly request that You keep me from deviating, stumbling or leaving Your righteous path, that You, O LORD, have clearly marked and paved, with Your life giving, sustaining and preserving commandments. (Psalm 119:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Seeking, serving and worshiping The LORD should never be relegated to something we just poke or pick at, or just have in our lives as an enjoyable hobby or as an activity that we use as a way to socialize. We should and must abandon ourselves completely to Him, His way and His will and purpose for our lives. You’ve heard it said before…”Either The LORD is LORD of all or He’s not LORD at all!” Blessings…

Script for today: PDCP- 12/16/14- “Does Your Faith Please Papa God?”

Posted on

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. (‭Hebrews‬ ‭11‬:‭6‬ NIV)

And if it be your great aim and desire, to please The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, with your life; then, when you humbly, but with boldness, approach His Splendid Magnificence, you must first exhibit an authentic strong belief and certitude in the reality of His existence, for without an authentic faith, it’s quite absurd, as well as, a complete exercise in futility, to ever think you’ll have any success in pleasing Him! And, one other premise to fully understand and accept, for it is a promise that He, The LORD Himself shall fulfill; that is, He will always give a just recompense award, to all those who intentionally make it their purpose and life’s quest, to diligently pursue Him and to do His will. (Hebrews 11:6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Our greatest quest, our most sincere desire and aim, in life, should always be, to please The LORD and to do His will. Blessings…

Script for today: PDCP- 12/15/14- “The Paradox Of Our Tongues”

Posted on Updated on

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. (‭James‬ ‭3‬:‭9-10‬ NIV)

My dear and most beloved family, of The Most High, we have an all too common practice, that is paradoxical in nature, of expressing, by uttering praises and blessings, with acclamation, exaltation, admiration, laudation and commendation unto our LORD and Savior and Papa God, while at the same time, out of the same mouth and with the same tongue, we utter profanity, filled with condemnation, denunciation, abomination, damnation and a commination of curses, of our fellow humankind; which, by the way, were formed, shaped and modeled, by The LORD God Almighty Himself, to be a representation of His Own Likeness. What is this then, that I’m hearing coming from your mouths; both, expressions of appreciation, grateful homage, with high acclaim and devotion, as well as, expressions of profane obscenities that are blasphemous, filled with obloquious hurtful abusive language? My most beloved and cherished fellow family members of The Company of The Redeemed, this should not be occurring, as it is completely unacceptable and incongruent behavior, that should never be a part of our common practice, as believers. (James 3:9-10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: What ends up coming out of our mouths, which is uttered by our tongues, is more often times than naught, determined by the content of our hearts. One more salient point to consider: When we curse others, who have been created in Papa God’s likeness, we in essence, are essentially cursing The Creator of humankind. Blessings…

Script for today: PDCP- 12/14/14- “We Get What We Want, When It’s What He Wants, For Us!”

Posted on

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him. (‭1 John‬ ‭5‬:‭14-15‬ NIV)

This is the certain certitude, being fully assured, with extraordinary courage, that we have, as we draw near, extremely close, to the very manifest presence, of The Sovereign LORD God Almighty: it’s knowing that if we make a request, that is entirely congruent with His Devine design and purpose, which pleases Him, then, He is pre-disposed to incline His ear and heart towards us and listens with rapt attention. And, because we are not in the dark, or unaware of the fact that He listens to us when we offer up to Him our pleasing petitions, requests and entreaties; then, no matter what we request, we are already fully assured of having all that we have requested of Him! (1 John 5:14-15 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Oh what a blessing it is for us and others, when our requests of The LORD are pleasing to Him, because they fulfill His Devine purpose and plan, for our lives and the lives of others. It’s also wonderful knowing, that when we ask anything according to His will, we have it, for it is already a work in progress and is part of the necessary process. Blessings…

Script for today: PDCP- 12/13/14- “He, The LORD, Will Make You Strong!”

Posted on Updated on

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭12‬:‭9‬ NIV)

But the magnificent and most merciful LORD God Almighty, set me straight, with this greatly encouraging admonition, “My ever faithful, loving kindness is all that you will ever need, it will always suffice; for My efficacious ability to accomplish My divine design and purpose, for your life, becomes ideal and absolutely impeccable, when in your frailty, inadequacies, infirmities and afflictions, you choose to completely rely upon Me!” Now that, is the reason why I’m more than happy and joyful to speak, with excessive pride, in an exaggerated manner and grandiose fashion, about my inglorious inadequacies, frail infirmities and noisome afflictions, knowing full well that The LORD God Almighty is empowering me to do all that He desires, fulfilling in me and through me, His divine design and purpose, for my life and His Glory. (2 Corinthians 12:9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: He, The LORD God Almighty, will always make us strong in our weaknesses, as we choose to rely on His strength and not our own. Sometimes though, our own strengths can become our weaknesses, when we choose to rely on them, rather than relying upon The LORD’S strength, but even still, in our own strength/weaknesses, when yielded to Him, He will make us strong! Blessings…

Script for today: PDCP- 12/12/14- “Finish Strong, Complete Your Assignment!”

Posted on

However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. (‭Acts‬ ‭20‬:‭24‬ NIV)

Notwithstanding, it matters very little to me, with regard to what may or may not happen to me personally, for I deem and recognize that my existence has very little value or usefulness, except, for only one reason and purpose, that of being entirely spent on what is most important to me, being my greatest aspiration; which is, to wrap-up and complete with a flourish, my life’s only ambition, the great undertaking, that The LORD Jesus Christ personally charged and assigned me with, entrusting to me His divine purpose of announcing, with huge fanfare, a declaration of the “best news” humankind would ever receive, telling everyone, that I have the privilege of coming in contact or have opportunity to interact with, have influence on or might impact, of the incomparable “great news” of Papa God’s unfailing, extravagantly gracious, loving kindness. ( Acts 20:24 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, should also make it our aim in life, to finish strong, by completing the assigned task, the “Great Commission” that has been entrusted to each one of us, by The LORD Jesus Christ, Himself; which of course is, telling everyone, as we have opportunity, of Papa God’s love and His saving grace. Blessings…

Script for today: PDCP- 12/11/14- “Believing Is Truly Seeing!”

Posted on

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. (‭Hebrews‬ ‭11‬:‭1‬ NIV)

Now concerning our Rock Solid unshakable faith, which is the sure foundation upon which everything in our existence is built on, for faith is what gives us the supreme confidence, being fully convinced, that what we hope for, in this life and beyond, even though we can not actually see it, with our physical eyes, we still have the absolute assurance of our strong convictions; therefore, our faith is all the evidence that we need, in order to believe in what we can not see with our physical eyes. (Hebrews 11:1 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We should take a firm grip upon faith, but even more important, is allowing faith to take a strong hold upon us, for whether it’s in the past time, present time or some future time, the concept of “now” always applies and should be a continuum for all time, when we consider faith! So, when evaluating our own faith, “seeing is not believing,” but, “believing is seeing with the eyes of faith and being fully assured with a heart full of expectant hope!” Blessings…
