SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/21/15- “The Proof Is In Us, God’s Spirit!” (1 John 4:13-15)

Premise Question: How do we know that The Spirit of The Most High lives within us and what is it, that we are suppose to now be doing, with such wonderful knowledge?

And God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us. Furthermore, we have seen with our own eyes and now testify that the Father sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. All who declare that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them, and they live in God. (‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭13-15‬ NLT)

The Sovereign LORD God Almighty Himself has given us all the proof we need to know, for a certitude, that He has made His home within us, taking up residence within our hearts, by placing His Spirit to live inside us and we reside within Him, as well, as He is our eternal home. And not only that, but we, the apostles and numerous others, can testify, as expert eye witnesses, to Papa God sending His only begotten Son into the world, as a Savior and Redeemer of humankind; therefore, everyone who unashamedly proclaims, by confession, that Jesus Christ is The LORD and Savior, The Son of Papa God, sent to earth by Him, has The Spirit of The Living God residing within them, and they now live in Papa God’s eternal presence. (1 John 4:13-15 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We know, by the testimony of the written Word, and His life changing, transforming presence, of His Spirit, living inside us! Now, what are we to do with such wonderful and incredible knowledge? SHARE, SHARE, SHARE, WITNESS, WITNESS, WITNESS, TESTIY, TESTIFY, TESTIFY!!! LIVE IT AND TELL OTHERS, WITH YOUR WORDS, YOUR BEHAVIOR AND YOUR ACTIONS!!! LOVE, LOVE , LOVE!!! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/20/15- “Love My Enemies? Loan Them Money Without Expectation Of Being Paid Back, And With Compassion? Wow!”

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/20/15- “Love My Enemies? Loan Them Money Without Expectation Of Being Paid Back, And With Compassion? Wow!” (Luke 6:35-36)

Premise Question: Is the reward from Heaven, the one that’s given to those who do what The LORD requests, not just suggests, of them to do, when considering how to deal with and treat their enemies, enough, and worth the trouble, testing, trials and tumult, that they may have to endure and go through, when choosing to show love and compassion, in spite of all the difficulties, toward their enemies?

“Love your enemies! Do good to them. Lend to them without expecting to be repaid. Then your reward from heaven will be very great, and you will truly be acting as children of the Most High, for he is kind to those who are unthankful and wicked. You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate. (‭Luke‬ ‭6‬:‭35-36‬ NLT)

You have enemies? Everyone does! They may be individuals you’ve been close to in the past, but because of entanglements, misunderstandings, unfulfilled expectations, hurtful words, actions or behaviors, that has now resulted in estrangement, from one another, your fault, their fault, somebody else’s fault, does it really matter? No, not a bit, when it comes to how The LORD desires for us to treat our enemies. Treat them with kindness and humility. Giving to them when they are in need. Doing kind acts of generosity, without any expectation of getting anything in return; for when you choose, and are able to do this, with The LORD’S enabling, of course, you qualify yourself for a reward and recognition from Heaven that is beyond your imagination and comprehension; And, you will be showing everyone, that you are acting just like a child of The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, who, by the way, is continuously showing His gracious favor and kindness to those who are forever ungrateful and utterly incorrigible. You, a member in good standing of The Company of The Redeemed, must take your lead from Papa God, which is, to be as compassionate as He is, towards others, even your enemies. (Luke 6:35-36 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Yes! The reward from Heaven is more than enough and worth every difficult person and difficulty we may encounter or have to endure; for all of Papa God’s promises are faithful and true! If we do what He has asked us to do, then He will do exactly as He says, and what He promises, He will do! And that, for our ultimate good and benefit! He will reward, He will restore, He will redeem, He will renew, He will refresh, He will reclaim, He will reconcile, He will regenerate, He will reveal, He will rejoice and sing over us, for we are His children, the children of The Most High! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/19/15- “Our Walk And Talk Should Match The Walk And Talk Of Jesus!” (1 John 2:5-6)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/19/15- “Our Walk And Talk Should Match The Walk And Talk Of Jesus!”

Premise Question: How can we know and show, with certitude, that we truly love Papa God and are truly living our lives honorably and right?

But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did. (‭1 John‬ ‭2‬:‭5-6‬ NLT)

When we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, walk and talk, living our lives on display, for all to see and hear, in accordance to the way Papa God’s Holy Writ declares that we should live; then we can, with full assurance and confidence, know with certitude, that we are completely in love with Him and in fact are living our lives in Him daily. After all, shouldn’t all those who say they are members, in good standing, of The Company of The Redeemed, show that they truly are, by the conduct of their walk matching their declarative talk and that it then, can and should, be clearly matched with the example of the walk and talk of our LORD Jesus? (1 John 2:5-6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: First off, Papa God is always going to respond to obedience more favorably than just a sacrifice without obedience. (Proverbs 21:3) So, in order to know that we truly love Papa God and are living right, we should begin, by learning, knowing and understanding the life of Jesus, and exactly how He lived His life while here on the earth. Then, we need to deliberately, with diligence, choose to live our lives in the same way, manner and approach, as our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ did. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/18/15- “Everything That Was Created, Was Created, By Him And For Him, Because The Son Of The Most High Is Supreme!”

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/18/15- “Everything That Was Created, Was Created, By Him And For Him, Because The Son Of The Most High Is Supreme!” (Colossians 1:16)

Premise Question: Given the fact, that everything that was created, was done so, by The Son and for The Son, then what does our part entail, what’s our call of duty, what does our obligation necessitate and what should be our appropriate response to Him, in this factual truth?

For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. (‭Colossians‬ ‭1‬:‭16‬ NIV)

Not a single thing in all of creation, not in Heaven or on earth, not the smallest or the biggest of things, that we can see and perceive, with our physical senses, nor even the things that we can’t see, perceive or comprehend, with any part of our physical being; whether they be earthly or not of this earth, kingdoms, thrones, rulers or authorities, with the capacity and ability to act with impunity, great force, and strength, as well as, with incredible power to exact their influence and will upon the earth and its inhabitants; for everything that’s been created, all of it, was brought into existence, by Him, through Him and for Him and His supreme glory.

Bottom Line: Our part entails that each one of us must love and serve Him only, as The LORD God Almighty. Our call of duty is to keep His commands and with humility, love and serve others. Our obligation necessitates that we bear righteous fruit that will remain and sustain. Our appropriate response to Him should always be one of joyfully serving, worshiping, praising, honoring and glorifying Him with our whole heart, soul, mind, body and strength, for He has chosen and appointed us to testify and bring glory to His Name, in all the earth, by doing thus.

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/17/15- “Our Love For Papa God And Our Love For Fellow Believers, Must Be Synonymous!”

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/17/15- “Our Love For Papa God And Our Love For Fellow Believers, Must Be Synonymous!”

Premise Question: Tell me again, why is this command, so vitally critical and most important to accept, understand, come into agreement with and into complete compliance?

And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister. (‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭21‬ NIV)

This vital and most critically important command that Papa God, The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, has given to each and every member of The Company of The Redeemed is: Anyone, meaning everyone, without exception, who says they love Papa God, must also, with the same love, express, show and have love towards each and every member of The Company of The Redeemed, their fellow believers. (1 John 4:21 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Love for our fellow believers, which are our most precious and dearly beloved brothers and sisters, must be one and the same, without exception, as it is for our Papa God, Whom personally implemented this divine rule, that must be followed with strict adherence and full compliance. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/16/15- “My Soul And My Spirit Aches And Craves For You, Oh LORD, For Your Wise Judgements, Your Justice And Righteousness, Both At Night And At Dawn!”

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/16/15- “My Soul And My Spirit Aches And Craves For You, Oh LORD, For Your Wise Judgements, Your Justice And Righteousness, Both At Night And At Dawn!” (Isaiah 26:9)

Premise Question: What is significant about the times one aches and craves for the presence of The LORD, in their life?

My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you. When your judgments come upon the earth, the people of the world learn righteousness. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭26‬:‭9‬ NIV)

Oh that my soul would experience your divine presence upon the night watches, for I am in desperate need of You, Oh LORD! And when the morning finally arrives, my heart and spirit earnestly desires and longs for Your manifest presence. For Your righteousness, Oh LORD, can only be truly learned and experienced, when You bring Your just and wise judgements upon the earth and humankind. (Isaiah 26:9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: During the night, one tends to think about all that has transpired during the day, replaying it over and over, again and again, in their mind, rehearsing every little detail of what happened, and what could have been done or said differently, not able to get resolve, relief or any restful sleep, but continues to toss and turn, being in great turmoil; while in the morning, one needs the courage and strength, of The LORD, in order to face the new day, with the old challenges of yesterday and the uneasiness and trepidation of what the new day may proffer. All too often, though, the case seems to be, as if, one does not need the presence of The LORD, in their life during the day, while it is still light, and therefore, may have the proverbial attitude of, “I’ve got this,” when in reality, truth be known, you don’t! And finally, it truly is the case, that the world at large, will only know of God’s righteousness, through His just and wise judgements. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/15/15- “Love For Our Fellow Believers, Is Not Optional!”

Premise Question: Have things so radically changed and transitioned, that it is now, today, possible to say, we love Papa God, His Son Jesus Christ and His most comforting, filled with power and joy, Holy Spirit, and, at the same time, not have love for some of our fellow brothers and sisters in The LORD, and in fact may actually have hate in our hearts for them?

Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. (‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭20‬ NIV)

When someone, anyone, does’t matter who they are, declares their allegiance and undying love for Papa God, The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, but at the same time, expresses hatred towards a fellow…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/15/15- “Love For Our Fellow Believers, Is Not Optional!”

Premise Question: Have things so radically changed and transitioned, that it is now, today, possible to say, we love Papa God, His Son Jesus Christ and His most comforting, filled with power and joy, Holy Spirit, and, at the same time, not have love for some of our fellow brothers and sisters in The LORD, and in fact may actually have hate in our hearts for them?

Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. (‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭20‬ NIV)

When someone, anyone, does’t matter who they are, declares their allegiance and undying love for Papa God, The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, but at the same time, expresses hatred towards a fellow believer, whether it be a brother or sister, in The LORD, they are not to be believed as credible and should be considered liars! Now this may seem a bit harsh to some, but, if one does not have or show love towards their fellow brothers and sisters, in The LORD, whom they can see and interact with on a daily basis, then it is an untenable situation, being completely impossible, to love Papa God, The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, whom they have yet to see! (1 John 4:20 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Here’s the short, quick and concise answer: NO! It is not possible, nor is it even an option, for The LORD clearly delineates that He is the same yesterday, today and forever and that He is not gonna change, period! (Hebrews 13:8) Some may say, “but you don’t understand how difficult this brother or sister has been to deal with, or what damage has occurred, because of their actions and behaviors!” The LORD’s response to that is, “My grace is sufficient.” (2 Corinthians 12:9) There will be times and occasions, that discipline of a fellow brother or sister may be necessary, but it should never be administered as a punishment, nor filled with vile, guile or hate, but should be administered with a great enduring love, with the ultimate goal of reconciling and restoring them back into right relationship and fellowship, with all members of The Company of The Redeemed. (Hebrews 12:5-10, Proverbs 3:12) After all, the “B” in Bible doesn’t stand for “Buffet,” whereby, one is able to select, follow and abide by, only those principles, commands and truths that are without difficulty, easy, being comfortable and tasty to one’s own proclivities and appetites! We must, as fellow believers, take the whole of God’s Holy Writ, not just the parts we like or agree with, but the whole, because, as the full of truth saying goes, “He, The LORD, is either The LORD of all, or not The LORD at all!” Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/14/15- “What Have You Got To Lose?”

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/14/15- “What Have You Got To Lose?”

Premise Question: Are you wearing a cross, as a fashion statement, or are you denying yourself, and your own cross, is wearing you?

Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it. (‭Mark‬ ‭8‬:‭34-35‬ NIV)

After giving Peter a strong, but necessary rebuke, Jesus called the crowd together, along with the rest of His disciples, and then spoke this forcefully vigorous admonition: “Whoever desires to be one of My disciples, must first deny themselves, by saying no to their own desires, agendas and ambitions, and then they must take up their own cross and follow Me to the place of My cross death, and there, die themselves. For whoever tries to only make a show of the gospel, with lip service, in order to somehow save their life, but not actually be willing to die to themselves, will not be successful in sparing their own life, but ultimately will lose it; but, if they lose their life for the sake of Me and My gospel, the Good News, they will surely not only save their own life, but also be involved in the wonderful process of saving the lives of others.” (Mark 8:34-35 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Unless we deny ourselves, by saying no to our own desires, agendas, and ambitions and then, say yes to The LORD, by picking up our own cross to bear and following Him to the place of the skull, Golgotha, where He was crucified and died for all of humankind, and there, at the place of our own personal Golgotha, allow ourselves to be crucified and die to all of our own desires, agendas, and ambitions, we will never truly experience life in all of its fullness! It’s not enough to look the part, by wearing a cross, but we must be willing to have the cross wear us! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/13/15- “Do It With Your Whole Heart!”

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/13/15- “Do It With Your Whole Heart!”

Premise Question: Is there a more important activity, for us to involve ourselves in doing, than to seek The LORD, faithfully and fervently, with our whole heart?

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29‬:‭13‬ NIV)

When you choose to ardently look for me, by fervently and faithfully, seeking Me, The LORD God Almighty, with your whole heart, making it the most important activity you do, in this life, you will absolutely find Me. (Jeremiah 29:13 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Everything in our life should flow out of this most important, being absolutely necessary and vital for success, life activity. Blessings…
