SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/31/15- “You’re Not Encroaching, When Confidently Approaching, The Throne Of Grace!” (Hebrews 4:16)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/31/15- “You’re Not Encroaching, When Confidently Approaching, The Throne Of Grace!” (Hebrews 4:16)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…
Premise Question: What is the reason we now have personal access to the very throne room of The Almighty?
“So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” (Hebrews 4:16 NLT)
Armed with the wonderfully liberating knowledge, of who it is that has opened up the door, that now allows us, with courage and full confidence, to gain unfettered access into the very throne room and manifest presence of Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty; we all, members of The Company of The Redeemed, should now, therefore, fearlessly draw near to the throne of The Almighty, in order to exchange our bungled bankrupted lives for His benevolent tender mercies, and thereby, experience His unmerited gracious favor, which is the remedy, for not only our greatest need, but all our needs, and is given to us, in a timely manner, on time, every time and for all time. (Hebrews 4:16 PDCP)
Bottom Line: It’s all because of what our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ, The Son of The Most High, who is The Savior of humankind, accomplished for us, upon the cross, in the grave and then, over death and in the great unknown and beyond; that we now have been granted personal access to bravely and confidently approach the very throne of grace, mercy and unfailing love of Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, to receive the appropriate aid and help, at the right time, every time, in our time of need. So, you’re not encroaching when confidently approaching Papa God’s throne of grace! Be thankful for this past year and hopeful for the new year upon us! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/30/15- “We Are Papa God’s Incredible Handiwork—His Masterpiece!” (Ephesians 2:10)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/30/15- “We are Papa God’s Incredible Handiwork—His Masterpiece!” (Ephesians 2:10)
Premise Question: What is Papa God’s, perfectly designed, divine plan, purpose and will for all of humankind?
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (Ephesians 2:10 NLT)
The art and incredible skill it took to make us what we are, a unique, one of a kind creation, is beyond our comprehension, for we are wonderfully shaped, by the work of Papa God’s hands, brought into being out of His own imaginative design, made new in Christ, in order to perform honorable, virtuous, worthy of excellence, righteous good works; which by the way, was already in Papa God’s prepared plan for us, as believers, well in advance and even before we were saved, or perhaps, yet even before we were born into this world, so as, to carry out and do, by fulfilling and bringing to complete fruition, His ultimate divine purpose and plan of reconciliation for all of humankind! (Ephesians 2:10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Papa God’s, perfectly designed, divine plan and purpose, was to ultimately bring all of humankind, whosoever will, of His greatly beloved and most cherished part of all of His creation, back into right standing and intimate fellowship, in an honorable and beautiful relationship with Him, Papa God and His Son Jesus Christ, The Creator of Heaven and earth, humankind and everything therein; and to also do His good work and will, by fulfilling His divinely designed, perfect will, holy purpose and ultimate plan! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/29/15- “Humility Is The Way, And Don’t Ever Worry!” (1 Peter 5:6-7)
Premise Question: Just how important is it for us, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of Papa God, and then, to not worry, be offended or be anxious about anything?
“So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” (1 Peter 5:6-7 NLT)
You will do well, and, do yourself a huge favor, when approaching The LORD, to come before Him with a humble and contrite spirit; serving and putting The LORD and then others, before and above yourself is the key, and that, without pride or arrogance, but with a gentleness, meekness and a respectful submissive attitude. Consequently, by submitting yourself underneath Papa God’s superior ability, skill, power, strength, authority, His unique purpose and specific divine will for your life, in such a manner, He will support and undergird you, by lifting you up and placing you in the perfect position, in order to accomplish His unique purpose and divine will for your life. There is one caveat, though, He will not do this in your time frame, but in His perfect timing, when it is due, on time, and not a moment before or after His appointed time. So, don’t spend any valuable time or resources on expending yourself in worrisome anxious thoughts or activities, trying to please others, but leave all of that anxiety with The LORD, and accept the truth, that He loves and cares for you much more than anyone else ever could or would even have the capacity or ability to do so. (1 Peter 5:6-7 PDCP)
Bottom Line: In humility, love and serve Papa God, The LORD GOD Almighty, first and foremost, with your whole heart, in your life; then, love and serve others, as a humble, gracious and most grateful servant of The Most High, leave the timing of any and all promotions up to The LORD, and definitely don’t waste any time or resources on being anxious or offended about anything, in your life, because He, The LORD, truly loves and cares for you much more than you could ever imagine or begin to comprehend! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/28/15- “There’s No Reason To Fear, Our Victory’s Already Here—A Done Deal!” (Isaiah 41:10)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/28/15- “There’s No Reason To Fear, Our Victory’s Already Here—A Done Deal!” (Isaiah 41:10)
Premise Question: What have we, The Company of The Redeemed, who are the greatly beloved and cherished children of The Most High, to be afraid of?
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10 NLT)
So, because I Am, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, has already personally selected you to be my cherished choice servants, do not ever be frightened of anything or anyone, for there is nothing to be afraid of, as I Am, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, shall always be with you and shall never abandon, leave or forsake you. Therefore, don’t ever allow the things that are happening around you to dissuade, distress, discourage, dismay or terrorize you, for I Am, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, am your Protector and Redeemer. I Am, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, will make you strong, with the power of My might; which shall be there, as an ever present help and strong support during difficult and troubling times. I Am, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, have taken a firm hold on you, with My righteous right hand and shall never grow weary and then let go or release you from My, already assured, victorious strong grip. (Isaiah 41:10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: There’s really no need to ever be afraid of anything or anyone in this world. Even though we will definitely encounter trouble, trial, tribulation, tumult, pain, suffering, hurt, disappointment, distressing hardships, as well as difficult and troubling times, during our brief time and spiritual sojourn here on this earth; there is still not ever a reason to loose hope, but there is always a reason to remember and not ever forget this; He, The LORD, has overcome it all, on our behalf, and will always be there with us, to comfort, to help, to encourage, to protect, to strengthen and support us, by empowering us to also be overcomers. It is because of His great promise, that He will never abandon, leave or forsake us, that our victory is already assured, no reason to fear, as our victory is already achieved and is here—a done deal! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/25/15- “Hallelujah! It Really Did Happen!” (Isaiah 9:6)
Premise Question: So, just what did really happen on that unique and oh so wonderful and most glorious night?
“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6 NLT)
For The Immortal Divine Word of Papa God, became mortal, taking upon Himself the human form of flesh and blood, as The only begotten Son of The Sovereign LORD God Almighty’s provision to us; coming to earth, to dwell amongst humankind, as a humble servant, in order to carry the weight of the world’s transgressions upon His shoulders, ultimately becoming The Supreme Ruler of everything and everyone. And, He will have and be known by these magnificent names: The Wonderful Counselor, astonishing all of humanity with His awesome wisdom, guidance and great comfort; The Almighty God, for there is none that can be compared to His Omnipotence; The Everlasting Father, because He is eternal, without a beginning and without an end; The Prince of Peace, He, who becomes, is and shall forever be, The King of kings and LORD of Lords, establishing a Kingdom of Peace, for all of humankind, even into infinity and beyond. (Isaiah 9:6 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The prophet Isaiah, who foretold of the birth of The Anointed One, somewhere in the neighborhood of about 700 years before the blessed event occurred, but is now, a historical fact, accepted and believed by the multiplied multitudes of The Company of The Redeemed, some 2000 plus years beyond the blessed event that occurred on that extraordinarily unique, oh so wondrous and most glorious Holy Night, is now to be told by all members in good standing, of The Company of The Redeemed, to everyone everywhere in the world, this wonderful and glorious message of Good News, which is, “Hallelujah! Joy to the world, The LORD has come, let earth rejoice and receive her King!” Merry Christmas and blessings to all…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/24/25- “The Great And Wonderful Announcement Of Good News!” (Luke 2:13-14)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/24/15- “The Great And Wonderful Announcement Of Good News!” (Luke 2:13-14)
Premise Question: What are we, The Great and August Company of The Redeemed, to do with this most wonderful and gloriously great announcement, of the greatest and best, Good News, of all time, for all of humankind?
“Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God and saying, “Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”” (Luke 2:13-14 NLT)
Without warning, and out of nowhere, came an unexpected addition to the already heart pounding, adrenalin rushing, wondrous and gloriously terrifying occasion, that the shepherds were in the midst of experiencing; for now, along with the appearance of the angel of The LORD, came the appearance of an overwhelmingly impressive and quite large, company of the angel armies of The Heavenly Host, praising and worshipping The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, while at the same time and at that very moment, announcing this great and glorious Good News to all of humankind, “All glory and honor to The Most High in the highest Heaven, and peace to all those on earth who are pleasing to Him, for The LORD’S favor and goodwill shall be upon them. (Luke 2:13-14 PDCP)
Bottom Line: As the great company, of the angel armies of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, made the most amazing and incredible announcement, on behalf of Papa God, of this wonderful and greatest, of all time, Good News to the shepherds first, who were watching over their flocks of sheep, in the fields, that momentous and glorious night, and while they, the angel armies, were worshiping and praising The LORD GOD Almighty, as the shepherds who were in the fields that night received the Good News, with great rejoicing, and then, verifying this wonderful announcement of The Good News, by going and seeing for themselves, The Babe wrapped in strips of clothing and lying in a feeding trough, who then, proceeded quickly and immediately, with a great sense of divine purpose and urgency, as they began spreading the wonderful and gloriously great Good News far and wide; so too, should we, The Company of The Redeemed, rejoice greatly, because of the wonderful and greatest Good News of all time, delivered first to the shepherds, then, to all of humankind, with worshiping and exuberant praising offered unto The LORD GOD Almighty, with the same sense of divine purpose and great urgency, determination and diligence, sharing this Good News far and wide, with everyone everywhere! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/23/15- “It’s Regestration Time, So Make Room In Your Heart!” (Luke 2:6-7)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/23/15- “It’s Registration Time, So Make Room In Your Heart!” (Luke 2:6-7)
Premise Question: How does one register, in order to then be counted in the census of The LORD GOD Almighty, and have you registered yet?
“And while they were there, the time came for her baby to be born. She gave birth to her first child, a son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.”
(Luke 2:6-7 NLT)
On the night of Mary and Joseph’s arrival into Bethlehem, the City of David, for the specific purpose of registering for the census, they were unable to secure appropriate lodging, as there was not a room or quarters available anywhere in the city to be had. And so, because Mary was very close to the time of her delivery, they were compelled to take what was left; which was a small stall in a stable, but it would have to suffice, on this wondrous and most glorious night. Sometime during this night, Mary went into labor and thus, brought forth into the world her firstborn, a son. She then carefully wrapped him up, tight and secure, in strips of clothing and then gently and lovingly laid him in a animal feeding trough, just inside the stall. (Luke 2:6-7 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Registration is now open and upon us all! It’s time for each of us to make room in our hearts and lives for “The Bread of Life,” The Savior of humankind, to come and reside within the within of our innermost beings. After all, the first place He was lain, immediately after His glorious and wondrous birth, was in a manger; which of course, is a common feeding trough. Perhaps Papa God was sending a message to everyone everywhere, even then, there in the very beginning, that all should come and partake of The Bread of Life, whom came to bring redemption, salvation and new life to all who will believe and receive, by calling upon The Name of The LORD, The Savior of humankind, Jesus Christ, Messiah and King! Something for all of us to consider during this busy season…Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/22/15- “This Is How And Why Papa God Did It!” (1 John 4:9)
Premise Question: How can we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, truly express our sincere heartfelt appreciation, thankfulness and gratitude, towards Papa God, for what He has done for all those who believe, and call upon The Name of The LORD for salvation?
“God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him.” (1 John 4:9 NLT)
In this way and by this manner, Papa God chose to exhibit and put on display, for all of humanity to see, His unfailing love and great concern for humankind: He did this, by sending His One and Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, The Anointed Redeemer and Savior of the world, to live and dwell in the midst of us, for a specific, divine and glorious purpose, of a most merciful and gracious, full of loving kindness, Papa God, in order that each of us could then be presented with the vital and wonderful opportunity of being able to live ours lives honorably for Him, and that, for all of eternity, without end, in His glorious and everlasting presence. (1 John 4:9 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We now, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, ought to authentically put on full display, His unfailing love, in and through our daily lives, with the spiritual and practical attributes of humility, grace, mercy and service, always being expressed with thankfulness and great appreciation to Him, Papa God, while also, being expressed with a sincere heartfelt gratitude and appreciation towards others. This is the way we can truly express and sincerely show our appreciation, thanks and gratitude, for all that Papa God has done for us! Blessings…
