SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/30/15- “The LORD GOD Almighty Always Fulfills His Word!” (Malachi 3:1)
Premise Question: Who specifically is The LORD GOD Almighty, through His servant and mouthpiece, the prophet Malachi, speaking of?
““Look! I am sending my messenger, and he will prepare the way before me. Then the Lord you are seeking will suddenly come to his Temple. The messenger of the covenant, whom you look for so eagerly, is surely coming,” says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.” (Malachi 3:1 NLT)
“I, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, shall send my appointed courier, to clear and prepare the way, as a forerunner, announcing the Good News of the arrival of My Anointed One. Then, all of a sudden, The LORD and Savior that you’ve been earnestly seeking and patiently waiting for, shall appear in His temple, as The Agent Messenger of the new covenant of My redemptive gracious love; for The One you’ve most desired, shall appear at His appointed time,” says The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty! ( Malachi 3:1 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The prophet Malachi has faithfully written down, for all to see, hear and receive, the clear and precise Good News message, which was personally delivered from the very mouth of Papa God Himself, who is The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, of the sure and certain coming of the promised Anointed One; who will, in the fulfillment of His Word, release, set free, cleanse and purify all those who, in humility and contriteness, call upon The Name of The LORD for salvation. He saves and delivers them completely, by removing the penalty of sin and death; which is eternal punishment and separation from the presence of Papa God. His wonderful message of Good News is that He is sending one, John The Baptist, who will come in The Name of The LORD, preparing the way of The Anointed One, Jesus Christ, who, upon the cross, has already accomplished His divine mission, is now continuing to fulfill His Word and mission, by ever interceding, on our behalf and shall yet do, all that He has said, in His Everlasting Word, that He will do!
Our divine mission now, is to be His appointed and anointed messengers, His personal ambassadors, boldly declaring and proclaiming, with courage and clarity, Papa God’s wonderful Good News about The Redeemer, Jesus Christ, to everyone everywhere, in this present world! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/29/15- “Thankfulness Provides Strength And Stability In Our Faith!” (Colossians 2:7)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/29/15- “Thankfulness Provides Strength And Stability In Our Faith!” (Colossians 2:7)
Premise Question: Why is it so vital and critically important, as well as being absolutely imperative, that we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, be deeply rooted and established in The Truth of The LORD?
“Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” (Colossians 2:7 NLT)
Allow yourself to grow down deep and wide, being deeply entrenched, and firmly implanted in The LORD, having a strong foundation, that will be able to support a solid structure, that is fortified and stabilized, by your strong certitude and convictions, that you were taught and brought up in; even, your stalwart belief and faith in The Truth, our Blessed Hope, that causes you to always be abounding in great measure in superabundance, teeming and overflowing with gratitude and thanksgiving. (Colossians 2:7 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We must be willing to be buried in Him, completely immersed and totally embedded in His presence, being literally surrounded and covered by His righteousness; while growing down and out, initially, in order to create a strong root system that will then give us a sure foundation so that we can build a strong and stalwart life structure, that will have the ability, strength and capacity to withstand the various trials and storms of life, in order to enable us to mature, by growing up and then spreading out, with hearts filled with gratitude and thanksgiving, so that we can then flourish, having an efficacious and powerfully reaching impact, not only upon our own lives, but the many lives of others living in this world, as well. This will have the glorious effect of producing, within us and others, a great and bountiful, successful harvest of righteousness, wherever we go, wherever we are and with whomever we have the wonderful blessed opportunity to love, help and serve. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/28/15- “Our Ultimate Victory Comes Only From Papa God, Through His Son Jesus Christ!” (1 Corinthians 15:57)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/28/15- ” Our Ultimate Victory Comes Only From Papa God, Through His Son Jesus Christ!” (1 Corinthians 15:57)
Premise Question: What is the main reason why, being the vitally essential, absolute foremost, superior and above in rank, over all other reasons, as it is greatest in importance and most impactive to our very lives and existence?
“But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:57 NLT)
All thanks and praise belongs and goes only to The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty! For it is He and He alone, who satisfies and fulfills our greatest and most desperate condition, that being our crucial and vital need of victory over sin, death, hell and the grave. The LORD GOD Almighty has done this for us, by and through providing The Champion Redeemer, our LORD and Savior, His Son, The LORD Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:57 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The preeminent, being tantamount and supremely paramount reason why we ought to be continually giving our thanks to The Father, Papa God, thanks to The Son and thanks to The Spirit, for all that They have done, are doing and yet will still do, on our behalf, is because in them, they are providing our eternally great and ultimate victory over our greatest challenge and most difficult problem of needing a Champion to come to our aid, by giving us total victory over sin, death, hell and the grave! For it is only Papa God who has provides us our victory, through His Son, Jesus Christ, our ultimate Champion Redeemer and by the ever present help and power of The Holy Spirit! Keep giving thanks! Don’t ever stop! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/27/15- “Everyday Is Thanksgiving Day!” (Psalms 100:4)
Premise Question: Why should everyday be a day of Thanksgiving?
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name.” (Psalms 100:4 NLT)
The key to entering through the portal that gives and gains one access, to the passageway that leads one directly into the very presence and inner sanctum of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, is a grateful heart, filled with thanksgiving, appreciation and honor for Him; once there, inside the very courts of His manifest presence, all honor, all worship, all glory, all praise and all thanks should lavishly, with great exuberance and joy, be given and lifted up unto His Holy Name, which is The Name above every name, being the most marvelous, gracious and glorious, name, The Name of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty. (Psalms 100:4 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Everyday of our existence should be a day of Thanksgiving; each and everyday deliberately entering The LORD’S presence, spending time with Him, giving Him the honor, glory and worship, with thanksgiving, that’s due His Name. Refuse to ever spend a whole day without gaining access, at some point during each day, to spend time in His presence; for if you do, you will benefit greatly when you take the time and blessed opportunity to honor The LORD thus. Happy Thanksgiving Day! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/26/15- “Give Thanks To Papa God—Tell Others Of His Goodness!” (Psalms 9:1)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/26/15- “Give Thanks To Papa God—Tell Others Of His Goodness!” (Psalms 9:1)
Premise Question: What attitude, condition and personal action should we have, exhibit and take, that truly determines, shows and proves, that we, the people of Papa God, are actually offering up to The LORD, authentic praise and worship, true honor and reverence, with real thanksgiving, sincere appreciation and heartfelt gratitude?
“I will praise you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.” (Psalms 9:1 NLT)
It is my great privilege, delightful pleasure and extreme honor to choose, of my own volition, with a purposeful determination and strong conviction, to make it my daily practice and disposition, of always expressing thanks and exuberant praise, with a heart full of gratitude and appreciation to You, my LORD and my Papa God; holding nothing back or in reserve, I am fully persuaded and devoted to declaring to everyone everywhere, with much enthusiasm, all about Your miraculous mighty acts, Your wonderful works, Your glorious exploits and gracious deeds. (Psalms 9:1 PDCP)
Bottom Line: A humble and contrite attitude of gratitude, that comes from and is continually being expressed from, a heart full of joyful rejoicing praise, honor and thanks; and then, tells others of The LORD’s excellent goodness and wonderful deeds, is what determines, shows and proves, that our praise, worship and honor of Him is truly authentic and absolutely real. We, as believers and the people of Papa God, should make it our aim in life, to always, without holding anything back in reserve, choose to give all thanks to Papa God, The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, and too, as we have opportunity, should always choose to tell others about His glorious, filled with grace, goodness and mercy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/25/15- “Don’t Just Give Papa God Thanks Now And Then, But Give Him Thanks Everyday, Continually, All The Day Long, Now And Forevermore!” (1Chronicles 29:13)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/25/15- “Don’t Just Give Papa God Thanks Now And Then, But Give Him Thanks Everyday, Continually, All The Day Long, Now And Forevermore!” (1 Chronicles 29:13)
Premise Question: Is there ever an inappropriate, wrong time or occasion for the people of Papa God to express thanksgiving and gratitude, offered up in sincerity, coming from hearts full of gratefulness, by giving all thanks, honor, praise and true worship unto His matchless and most glorious Name?
““O our God, we thank you and praise your glorious name!”
(1 Chronicles 29:13 NLT)
Without any delay or procrastination, at this present moment in time and on this exact occasion, as well as, into the immediate future and beyond, at all times and on every occasion, we, Your very own chosen ones, all ascribe to You, Papa God, The Creator of Heaven and earth, our Sovereign LORD God Almighty, thanks, from the very depths of our hearts. And, we also give to You our highest, most joyful, exuberant praise and worship, with the greatest of honor, unto You and Your wonderful, matchless, marvelously and gloriously filled Name, which of course, is above every name. (1 Chronicles 29:13 PDCP)
Bottom Line: There is not ever a time, occasion, situation or circumstance, whereby, we, the people of Papa God, should not always be found giving all thanks, praise, honor and glory unto The King Eternal, The Creator of Heaven and earth and everything therein, The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, our lavishly loving and kind, gracious and most merciful Papa God, our Redeemer and rescuing Savior! Not just occasionally, now and then, but at all times and on all occasions, let your thanks, praise, honor, glory and worship, of The LORD, be heard, seen and known, not only by Him, but everyone! Let your worship roar! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/24/15- “There Is No End In Sight, To Papa God’s Great Love For Us!” (1 Chronicles 16:34)
Premise Question: Why ought and do we give thanks to The LORD?
“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.”
(1 Chronicles 16:34 NLT)
Heap upon, by continuously piling high lavishly, sacrificial offerings of appreciation, thanksgiving and gratefulness, for He, The LORD God Almighty, is the epitome of goodness, the One true pure source of all that is good, right and holy, as He is the exact representation of what it is to be morally excellent. His great love, which never fails, is always full of grace, mercy and loving kindness, and shall never give out, run out, give up or quit on us; as it is everlasting to everlasting. Eternal and without an expiration date, as it is without end, and with the end of His great love, mercy and grace not ever being in sight. (1 Chronicles 16:34 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Because there is no end in sight to His great love, mercy and grace for us, there should not ever be a cessation of our expressions of thanks to Him for His goodness and loving kindness! And because no matter how much thanks we lavishly heap upon Him, for what He has done for us, He, The LORD, would deserve so much more and would never be sufficient; in another words, we can’t thank or praise Him enough, so don’t stop now, don’t ever stop! Continually offer up thanksgiving and praise! Blessings…
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/23/15- “Impossible To Describe, For It Is Beyond Any Human Words One Can Express!” (2 Corinthians 9:15)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/23/15- “Impossible To Describe, For It Is Beyond Any Human Words One Can Express!”(2 Corinthians 9:15)
Premise Question: Has there ever been, is there now or will there ever be a more incredibly glorious and too wonderful for words, gracious gift given to humankind, than The One given to us, by Papa God, His Son, Jesus Christ?
“Thank God for this gift too wonderful for words!” (2 Corinthians 9:15 NLT)
All thanks, with hearts full of overflowing gratitude, be given and exuberantly expressed, to Papa God, the only One True Sovereign LORD God Almighty, maker of Heaven and earth and everything therein, for His most precious and invaluable gift of immeasurable grace and favor; which is too extraordinary to even try and describe with mere words, and which, has now been made available, with complete access, to anyone and everyone, anywhere and everywhere. (2 Corinthians 9:15 PDCP)
Bottom Line: This amazing gift, from The LORD, cannot be earned, for there is no amount of good deeds or behavior that will be sufficient to earn it, nor can it be bought or purchased with gold, silver or any kind of money or tender, for no amount will ever be able to cover the cost of this gift. It also cannot be inherited or handed down, because of family or business influential connections. And finally, it cannot be won by being the winner of a competition, for no amount of training will ever make anyone fast enough or strong enough to win. But, it can be found in only one place and one person; that’s at the cross, upon which the one person, Papa God’s Only Son, Jesus Christ, willingly laid down His life for all who would accept His love, mercy and grace freely given by Him, for their certain rescue from death and their eternal redemptive salvation. So, whether or not we are are able to adequately express our gratitude and thankfulness with our words, we ought to make every effort to do so from the depths of our hearts and with everything that is within us. Why, because no, there hasn’t been, is not now nor will there ever be a more incredibly glorious or wonderfully gracious gift given to humankind, than The One provided by Papa God, when He gave His Son! Blessings…
11/08-SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/08/15- “Love And Embrace The LORD’s Discipline!” (Proverbs 3:11-12)
Premise Question: Why, and for what specific purpose, does The LORD discipline those He cherishes and loves, and how should one respond to The LORD’s discipline, when on the receiving end?
“My child, don’t reject the LORD’s discipline, and don’t be upset when he corrects you. For the LORD corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights.” (Proverbs 3:11-12 NLT)
My most beloved and precious child, do not regard with contempt, disdain or disgust, The LORD’s faithful instruction and training in righteousness; for it is for your greatest good and benefit, as it produces godliness in you. Rather, welcome and embrace it! Don’t try to hide from it, escape or avoid it, but always relish and revel in it. Be ever thankful for it and take it as a wonderful sign, an indication and beautiful expression, of His great love for you. Furthermore, don’t ever try to circumvent, obfuscate, finagle or manipulate it, but always quickly accept it, with a grateful heart, for you’ll be better off, in so doing. And, whatever you do, refuse to take offense or be annoyed, irritated, irked or indignant, when The LORD decides to reprimand you because of His disapproval of your ungodly behaviors, actions and attitudes. For He only ever brings His directed correction into the lives of those He truly cherishes and dearly loves. Even as a loving and caring earthly parent will administer carefully crafted correction to their own precious child, whom they take the greatest of pleasure, enjoyment and contentment in, knowing that the discipline they administer will bring much benefit to the child; so too, it is for this very reason, that The LORD faithfully administers, with great care, His loving discipline to His own children. (Proverbs 3:11-12 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The simple and most obvious reason why The LORD disciplines those He loves, is because His greatest desire is to have a holy, honorable, right, good, satisfying, flourishing and completely fulfilling relationship, with a strong unbreakable connection, that will not ever be disconnected, discontinued or broken, with them. He derives His greatest pleasure and delight from interacting, protecting, providing for and seeing His very own unique creation, revel, rejoice and succeed in life. He, The LORD GOD, The Creator, absolutely adores us, as He has placed His great love and strong affinity for us above all others and everything else in His creation; whether they be in Heaven or on earth. His allegiance and unfailing love shown towards all of humankind, by not holding His best back from them, but freely offering the very best of Himself, in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ and the power and personal presence of His Holy Spirit, to redeem, lead, guide, direct and help them in their daily lives. In all of this, He proves His undying love, care and concern for His very own chosen and unique people.
Now, for the specific purposes, that He disciplines His own, I’ve already touched on, but here is the central core of what His purpose is. He does it for our own good and greatest benefit, as well as, the benefit of others and so that we will not only be completely fit, in spirit, soul and body, but also that we will be fit for The Kingdom and enabled to do the work of The Kingdom. He will be faithful and diligent to make sure that we will become, achieve and do all that we were intentionally designed and created to do. This, because we are His greatest masterpiece and workmanship, in the whole of His creation.
Finally, our response to The LORD’s discipline being administered to us in our daily lives, should be one of gratitude, thankfulness, great appreciation and also, that it is such a huge honor to be so fortunate to be loved and cherished in this manner and fashion, by our creator, The LORD GOD Almighty. So, love and embrace The LORD’s discipline in your life. You can’t go wrong by doing it; and it really is in your best interest and for your greatest good! Blessings…
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/07/15- “This Good News Is To Be Shared With Everyone Everywhere!” (1 Timothy 2:5-6)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/07/15- “This Good News Is To Be Shared With Everyone Everywhere!” (1 Timothy 2:5-6)
Premise Question: As members of The Company of The Redeemed, what should be our prima facie, unchangeable charge and mission in life, and who, in this world, should garner the greatest attention and our utmost focus?
“For, There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time.”
(1 Timothy 2:5-6 NLT)
For there is only one true Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty. He is the maker of Heaven and earth and everything therein. There is no other God! There is only one Mediator who can intervene on behalf of all of humankind, by making peace, restoring and reconciling them back together in right relationship with The Creator Papa God—The Eternal Word, Jesus Christ, who willingly became flesh, sent by Papa God, His Heavenly Father, to dwell amongst us as a man, for the express purpose of fulfilling Papa God’s perfectly designed, divinely inspired plan, at His appointed perfect time, when He offered up His only begotten Son, upon the cross, as a ransom paid in full, for the redemption of the whole of humankind; meaning all people everywhere in the world. Now, here is The Good News, which was revealed, witnessed and attested as the truth. Papa God, The Creator of humankind, truly desires that all of humankind, His creation, would be saved. (1Timothy 2:5-6 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Our prima facie charge and mission in life, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, is to share the message of great joy and eternal hope; a wonderful and marvelous message of perfect peace and Good News, for all of humankind and the whole earth. The Good News message is timeless, for it is for all time and for everyone, but was delivered to the whole world, by Papa God, just at the right and appointed time; for all those who are orphaned and lost, without hope, helpless or hurting, oppressed or ostracized, harassed or hapless, persecuted or downtrodden; never excluding, ignoring nor overlooking anyone, and leaving no one in a lurch or behind, but reconciling, restoring and renewing, by redeeming and setting free anyone and everyone who accepts The Good News message of hope, by calling on The Name of The LORD Jesus Christ to be saved!
Here is the timeless message of hope: There is only one, true and living, Papa God, who is The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, The Creator of Heaven and earth and everything therein. There is only one Mediator and LORD, who has the qualifications, ability and authority to intervene on behalf of humankind, acting as a Paraclete between Papa God and humankind—Jesus Christ. There is only one mission given to us by Papa God, delivered to us through His Only Son Jesus Christ: that is, to seek out those who are lost, in order to share the life giving message of Good News and hope with them, so that, they may have the opportunity to call out upon The Name of The LORD and be delivered, set free and eternally saved! Remember, “if you’re not ministering to the world, then who in the world are you ministering to!” (quote from Tim Sipes) And, “if you’re not focussed on the lost, then you’ve simply lost your focus!” (quote from yours truly) The Good News is to be shared with everyone everywhere! Papa God is depending on us to do it! Blessings…
