SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/27/15- “The LORD Gives A Peace, That Overcomes The World!” (John 16:33)
Premise Question: When one chooses to receive and follow Jesus Christ as their personal LORD and Savior, thereby, becoming a full fledged member of The Company of The Redeemed, with all of its afforded incredible rights and privileges and its wonderful blessings and benefits; does that mean then, that one can assume and fully expect that they will avoid having to face or go through any difficult trial, trouble, tumult, tragedy or tribulation during their life here on this earth?
“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NLT)
“I, The LORD, have been completely open and transparent with you, making you aware of some things that are hard to hear and accept, but I’ve done this purposely, for your comfort and assurance of having and being at perfect peace in Me. Although, you will definitely experience many trials, trouble, tribulation and distressful sorrow, while living in the world, I, The LORD GOD Almighty, personally encourage you to not allow any of that to rob and deprive you of your joy that I’ve given you. So, be brave, stay strong in The LORD, with the unalterable and completely immutable fact that, I, The LORD GOD Almighty, have utterly defeated the world, with an overcoming triumphal victory; therefore, that makes you an Overcomer, as well. (John 16:33 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The quick and absolutely true response to this premise question is: NO! But, that quick and abruptly succinct response doesn’t even begin to adequately nor properly convey the full ramifications of what surrounds this question nor does or can it truly depict the complete joy, the all surpassing peace and great comfort that comes to one, as a direct result of one choosing to give their life over to Christ! For every promise of The LORD GOD is faithful and true, being most reliable and trustworthy; and is therefore, absolutely and totally, forever dependable! So, when The LORD GOD, our Redeemer and wonderfully gracious and most merciful Savior, Jesus Christ, says that we most assuredly will experience trial, trouble, tumult, tragedy and tribulation while sojourning here upon this earth, but that we are take heart and are to be entirely alright and completely at peace about all of this, because He, The LORD GOD, has overcome the world and all of it, for our sakes! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/26/15- “The LORD Hears My Voice, When I Call Upon His Name For Mercy!” (Psalms 116:1-2)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/26/15- “The LORD Hears My Voice, When I Call Upon His Name For Mercy!” (Psalms 116:1-2)
Premise Question: In what ways can and should we, The Company of The Redeemed, respond to The LORD’s wonderful expressions of His acts of mercy, gracious favor and His loving kindness shown towards us?
“I love the LORD because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!”
(Psalms 116:1-2 NLT)
I profoundly, with all of my affections, strongest desires and certain sure intentions, love The LORD GOD Almighty, with my whole heart, body and soul; for He, The LORD GOD Almighty Himself, inclines His ear towards the direction and sound of my desperate cry and plea for His kind, considerate and compassionate, divine favor of forbearance, to be shown towards me, which He, without fail, definitely always does. Because He, The LORD GOD Almighty, pays close rapt attention, carefully listening to my entreaty every time I call upon Him; I will therefore, continually offer up my supplications, requests and prayers to Him, when I’m in need of assistance, for as long as I have breath and continue to live. (Psalms 116:1-2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Here are just some of the ways, expressions and actions we can take and do, in response to The LORD’s expressions of acts of mercy, gracious favor and His loving kindness shown towards us. We can and should be praying to Him, not only for ourselves and our own interests, but interceding and praying on behalf of others and their specific needs and interests. We ought to be singing songs about His magnificent mercies shown towards us and all of humankind. We can prepare and make declarative proclamations about His loving kindness. We should abandon ourselves in exultation, high praise and worship to Him; glorifying and magnifying His Name, by testifying about His marvelous acts and wonderful deeds with others. We should and can share His love, compassion, mercy, loving kindness and gracious favor, by clearly saying, then displaying and showing it towards others. We should, with heartfelt thanksgiving and gratitude, be completely thankful to The LORD for all that He has done, is doing and shall yet do! We can follow Him and then lead others to Him. We can do this by helping others as He, The LORD, has, is and will continue to help us. We need to be faithful, reliable, dependable and totally trustworthy, towards and with others, as He, The LORD, is towards and with us. Finally, we need to be patient and long suffering, inclining and bending ourselves towards others, with great compassion, by being willing to listen to them, and then following through, by doing all that we can, with The LORD’s help and aid, to help them in their plight. Thank The LORD, that He indeed does hear our cries for mercy! We must remember this: Mercy is shown to the merciful! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/25/15- “Our Greatest Hunger And Thirst, Is Satisfied And Quenched! (John 6:35)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/25/15- “Our Greatest Hunger And Thirst, Is Satisfied And Quenched!” (John 6:35)
Premise Question: What is our most intense hunger and thirst, the deepest cry and desire of our hearts, our greatest and most urgent need, that must be completely satisfied and utterly quenched, in order for our lives to have meaning and purpose and then, be absolutely fulfilled, as humankind?
“Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” (John 6:35 NLT)
Then Jesus responded to their request of always wanting to have bread from Heaven, with this emphatic declaration; I am The One who is sent from Heaven, by The Almighty Papa God, as The True Bread of life, which is the sustaining nourishment and sustenance of all life. Whatever person, no matter who they are or what they’ve done in life, approaches and moves towards Me, The Anointed One, I will draw near to them and satisfy their ravenous insatiable hunger; so that, they will never ever again be famished. And furthermore; whenever, whatever person places their complete faith, hope, reliance and trust in Me, they shall never again have an unquenchable thirsting for anything that is temporal, but only that which is intrinsic and eternal, for I will satisfy and fulfill their greatest need and deepest thirsting desires. (John 6:35 PDCP)
Bottom Line: To eat, drink, be happy and satisfied—to live a life filled with meaning and purpose—to do and accomplish something in life that is greater than one’s self—to leave a legacy and path for others to follow—to also enjoy a life of peace, safety and the good company and love of family, friends and others in this life; now that perhaps, is something that’s a wonderful aspiration and desired goal for many of us, but it is just not enough and will ultimately, in the end, not cut it, if it doesn’t also include having as its greatest desire, a hungering and thirsting aspiration and goal of fulfilling our greatest and most certainly divinely designed need, which is to have a real, authentic and intimate relationship with the creator of humankind, Papa God, through and by accepting the provision of His Son Jesus Christ and the power of His Holy Spirit! For we are all more than just flesh and blood physical beings, that are just temporal, as we are also intricately unique spiritual beings as well; who have been given free will and a mind with creativity, imagination and desires and intense deep needs, that only a good, right, holy and honorable relationship with The Creator can ever truly be satisfied, fulfilled and completely quenched! Only Papa God, The Maker of us, the heavens, the earth and everything therein, can truly satisfy and quench the hungering and thirsting of our extremely unique spirit, soul and body! Blessings…
