SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/23- “All Who Call!” (Acts 2:21)

Premise Question: Is it actually a possibility for someone to call upon The Name of The LORD for salvation, without ever expressing a believing faith in Him, and still be saved?

But everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.’
(Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭2‬:‭21‬ NLT)

Now hear this! Everyone, anyone, of any race, color or creed, from anywhere and everywhere, here in this world, who cries out, from a heart of humility and contrition, while recognizing and accepting that there is no other Name given to mankind, whereby, one can receive salvation, for He is The LORD of Lords and The King of kings, The One True God, Who was and is and is to come. Call upon His Name and you will and shall forever and ever eternally, without end, be rescued from the power of darkness and the penalty of sin, which is eternal death, hell and the grave—being forever separated from the presence of Papa God! There is no power anywhere that will be able to stop or keep you from being redeemed…SAVED! (Acts 2:21 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Nope, in answer to the premise question! It is not even a remote possibility for someone to be rescued from certain death and eternal separation from the presence of Papa God without a believing faith in His Son, our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ!

But, even though there will be such horribly awful and terrible things happening all around, as the world experiences trouble and is in complete turmoil, anyone and everyone, regardless of their people group, their past or present circumstances or situation, culture or creed, from anywhere and everywhere, it truly does not matter, for if they will humbly, with a contrite heart, cry out in believing faith to The LORD, by simply asking Him to hear their plea for mercy, they shall immediately and absolutely, without a doubt, be eternally recused from certain death and eternal separation from Papa God’s joy filled and wonderful, eternally blissful, presence.

So, the question comes back on us, the members of The Company of The Redeemed. What is our part, our call of duty and obligation, as believers? The Apostle Paul makes the case in Romans chapter 10 for what the honorable right thing and our obligation is for us to be engaged in fully.

According to Paul, no one has the ability to call upon The LORD, to be rescued and saved by Him, unless they believe in Him! And no one can ever possibly believe in Him unless and until they have heard the good news about Him! And, in fact, when they do hear, they will respond, by calling upon His Name to be saved! Furthermore, Paul surmises, it’s not even a remote possibility for anyone to hear about the good news of Jesus Christ unless there is someone who is willing to share it with them!

And finally, there will not be anyone to share the wonderful good news with those who’ve not ever heard, unless and until they are willing to go, and are, in actuality, sent! (Romans 10:14-15)

Now, that being the case, and because of this marvelous and wonderful truth, we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, must have a tantamount sense of duty and joyful obligation, along with great urgency, to go, send and be sent everywhere, for the express purpose of sharing the good news, by telling everyone about Jesus Christ!

Thank Papa God for His lavishing love, His magnificent mercy and glorious grace! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/22- “Papa God’s Sacred Word Teaches And Trains Us, Giving Us Hope And Encouragement!” (Romans 15:4)

Posted on Updated on

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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/22- “Papa God’s Sacred Word Teaches And Trains Us, Giving Us Hope And Encouragement!” (Romans 15:4)

Premise Question: Besides Papa God’s Sacred Word teaching and training us, and giving us hope and encouragement, what is the prima facie purpose, for us to fulfill, as a result of what it does in our lives?

Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled. (‭Romans‬ ‭15‬:‭4‬ NLT)

The particular matters of this kind, of how we ought to view, treat and consider others, were specifically addressed in the distant past—the ancient times, as they were faithfully recorded and written down in Papa God’s Sacred Word, for the express purpose of training, teaching and imparting helpful knowledge to us. For it is Papa God’s Sacred Word that furnishes us with the anticipation of a hope filled expectancy, that’s full of inspiration and helpfulness, and that’s constantly cheering us on and building us up in our most Holy faith; which also enables and empowers us to continue bravely, with a serene calmness, to endure and not give up, but to wait for the expressed assurances, Papa God’s promises, that are clearly delineated in His Sacred Word, to come to pass, being fully accomplished in our lives and the lives of others. (Romans 15:4 PDCP)

Bottom Line: First and foremost, it is my ultimate desire to please Papa God, by doing His will and fulfilling His divine purpose for my life! In so doing, though, I always want to be an encouragement and refreshing inspiration to others; a veritable fountain of effervescent life, a continuous flow of encouragement and hope.

I want to teach and train others to rely on Papa God’s Sacred Word, as the life giving source and flow of goodness into their lives, for everything good right and helpful.

After all, we don’t live for ourselves, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, but as servants and friends of The Most High! We now live to honor Him and to serve others, in order to help build up and encourage them in their faith, with a hopeful expectation in The LORD.

So, we must refuse to ever allow any insults, of any kind, to dissuade us from ardently pursuing the accomplishment of always being an encouraging, helpful, refreshing inspiration, a veritable effervescent fountain of life, to others! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/21- “Find Rest, Peace And Safe Haven, By Living Under Papa God’s Canopy Of Love, Grace And Mercy!” (Psalm 91:1)

Posted on Updated on

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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/21- “Find Rest, Peace And Safe Haven, By Living Under Papa God’s Canopy Of Love, Grace And Mercy!” (Psalm 91:1)

Premise Question: Do we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, take full advantage of the comforting, protective, covering provided us, by Papa God; and, do we tell others about the many wonderful benefits attached to it, by encouraging them with this great and precious promise?

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. (‭Psalms‬ ‭91‬:‭1‬ NLT)

All those who choose to dwell, by taking up permanent residence, in the provided comfort and security of The Most High, will not ever be unsettled or have any reason to be afraid of what’s going on around them, inside or outside the presence of their divinely protected dwelling place; for they shall be at perfect peace and serene rest, with a constant refreshing, under Papa God’s, safe and secure, canopy of love, grace and mercy, for He is, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty. (Psalms 91:1 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Choose to live in the presence of Papa God, by deliberately, with devotion and diligence, practicing His Presence on a daily basis, moment by moment of each day, spend your time praising, thanking and honoring The LORD, no matter where you are or what you’re doing. For whatever presence you choose to practice, will have a large bearing and huge influence on the kind of fruit you will bear, produce/harvest, in your life! When we choose to take advantage of living daily, moment by moment, under the protective and comforting covering of the canopy of The Most High, it won’t matter what kind of storm of life we may have to go through, or the degree or level of difficulty, of the vicissitudes and vagaries of life that we may encounter, for Papa God’s presence, where we have taken up residence, will always be there with us, comforting, leading, guiding, encouraging and strengthening us, by renewing and restoring us, as well as, protecting and providing us with a safe haven of perfect peace and rest.

So therefore, then, let us always, without fail or neglect, be ready to share, with others, the many blessings and benefits of this ever faithful, great and precious promise of Papa God!

Oh, one more thing: whatever you do, don’t ever take a vacation, time out or detour away from the presence of The LORD! For it never produces the harvest we desire or need, nor will it ever be honoring or pleasing to Papa God. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/20- “Hope Filled Expectations!” (1 Peter 1:3)

Posted on Updated on

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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/20- “Hope Filled Expectations!” (1 Peter 1:3)

Premise Question: How and why are we to live our lives now and in what state of mind and frame of reference?

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, (‭1 Peter‬ ‭1‬:‭3‬ NLT)

Let every forgiven, blood bought, cleansed and washed member, of The Company of The Redeemed, offer extravagant joyful expressions of exuberant praise and worship, with hearts filled to overflowing with gratitude and thanksgiving, unto Papa God, The Father of The Anointed One, His Son, our LORD and Savior, The Messiah, Jesus Christ. For it is truly only due to Papa God’s august, unsurpassed, benevolent compassion and goodwill shown towards all of humankind, that we have been given this wonderful opportunity to be revitalized and have a fresh start, a new beginning, and that, because Papa God reanimated, by His Spirit, the body of His crucified and buried Son, Jesus Christ from death, hell and the grave. And furthermore, that is the very reason why we can live now, with such an overwhelming sense of joy and hope filled expectations. (1 Peter 1:3 PDCP)

Bottom Line: How are we to live? Circumspectly, honoring and obeying The Commands of The LORD; which are, love Papa God and love people!

Why? In order to fulfill Papa God’s will and divine purpose for our lives!

What state of mind? The mind of Jesus Christ; which is, to walk humbly, love being merciful and be a person of integrity, honor and peace!

What frame of reference? Live with the full assurance and confidence of The LORD’S Spirit living in you, knowing that you are more than a conquering victorious overcomer, through Jesus Christ, your saving, all encompassing and empowering, LORD and Redeemer! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/19- “His Heartache And Heartbreak Made It Possible For Your Heart To Be Made Whole!” (Isaiah 53:3)

Posted on Updated on

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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/19- “His Heartache And Heartbreak Made It Possible For Your Heart To Be Made Whole!” (Isaiah 53:3)

Premise Question: How was The LORD able to endure, while personally experiencing, without any buffer, all the abject vexation, the distressing scorn and acrimony, filled with hateful vitriol, along with every kind of sickness and affliction, which caused suffering beyond belief, with all the resulting pain and agony, as well as, being completely forsaken and jilted, not only by the people He came to help, but by the one who sent Him, His Father, Papa God?

He was despised and rejected— a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭53‬:‭3‬ NLT)

The Anointed One was shunned, scorned and hated—looked upon as being utterly abhorrent in the eyes of the people He came to help. He was a man of abject vexation, full of pain and agony, and who was forsaken and jilted by the very people He came to rescue and heal. Because of this, He was all too familiar with the worst kind of suffering, distress and devastating sorrow. All of us turned away from Him, abandoning Him, to be all alone, in the hour and moment of His darkest and most difficult challenge and ordeal. During that most critical time, for all of humankind, He was completely ignored by us, and was considered as less than nothing, as none of the people He came to redeem showed any care or concern for Him or His plight. (Isaiah 53:3 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The Anointed One, Jesus Christ, The Messiah, was able to endure and thereby, accomplish what He did, because of His love for and His complete trust in His Father, Papa God—His love for His friends—His disciples—His love for Papa God’s beloved creation, the unredeemed children, and also because of His desire to do the will of His Father, by obeying Him. And this then, would fulfill His sincere desire to be pleasing to His Father. The LORD also was able to endure, because He chose to take hold of and then refused to ever let go of the promise His Father gave Him. That being, by finishing what He was sent to accomplish, He would make it possible for all of humankind to be rescued; providing them with a way to escape eternal death and damnation. It was this promise, I believe, that gave Him His greatest source of joy. (Hebrews 12:2) And finally, He was able to endure it all, because of the power, presence and influence of The Holy Spirit being present in His life.

Now, due to His endurance, through heartache to heartbreak, we now have been given the opportunity to have our hearts healed, our lives rescued and made whole. So that, we too, can endure, overcome and complete our mission and task given to each one of us, by The LORD, with the same power and ever present help of The Holy Spirit, being allowed to operate fully, in our every day lives, as well. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/18- “Atonement For All!” (Isaiah 55:3)

Posted on Updated on

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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/18- “Atonement For All!” (Isaiah 53:5)

Premise Question: What is Atonement and what is the wonderful impact and beautifully gracious, being most merciful result and blessing it can have upon each of our individual lives, as humankind?

“But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.”
(‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭53:5‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

He, Jesus, became The Atonement for all humankind, by being pierced for our violations of Papa God’s Law, becoming the propitious expiation (the extinguishing of sin and guilt, through abject suffering); thereby, clearing a path and making The Way back to Papa God possible, by the efficacious appeasement of satisfying completely the righteous requirements of Papa God’s Holy Commands. He was humiliated, defaced, deformed and oppressed grievously, because of our wickedness and sin. He endured a punishment that inflicted excruciating pain, which produced horrible suffering, enduring it all just so He could bring us His peace; (a cessation from all toil, turmoil and strife). The wounds He received in His body, now produces and provides life, healing and wholeness in ours. (Isa.53:5 PDCP)

Bottom Line: ATONEMENT-Reconciliation of man back to Papa God through the death of Papa God’s Son, Jesus Christ, upon The Cross. Reparations of wrongs done, by man’s violation of Papa God’s Righteous Law and the complete satisfaction and fulfillment of the righteous requirement of Papa God’s Law, all brought to a conclusion through the act of appeasement, by our Savior’s willing sacrificial offering of His life upon The Cross. He, therefore, with gladness and joy, took our place!

Here is an important and most pertinent question and thought for today:
Do you believe? Believe in Jesus and live, even after you leave this place and die, you’ll live and never die, because you believe in Him! Now is the time, today is the day, to believe…For everyone, meaning anyone, who calls on the name of The LORD Will Be Saved! (Acts 2:21) Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/17- “Enduring Patiently Gets The Ultimate Reward!” (James 1:12)

Posted on Updated on

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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/17- “Enduring Patiently Gets The Ultimate Reward!” (James 1:12)

Premise Question: What, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, is our most difficult task, how do we fulfill said task and what is our reward for doing so?

“God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”‭‭ (James‬ ‭1:12‬ ‭NLT‬)

Papa God thoroughly enjoys lavishing gifts upon His dearly beloved children; especially those who’ve persevered under great duress, provocation and enticement. For eventually, if they refuse to give up, during the crucial verification process, by continuing to love and rely on Papa God no matter what, they will have bestowed upon them the highest honor, which is His most valued and promised reward, of an eternal life, filled with perfect peace, constant refreshing and everlasting joy. (James 1:12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The most difficult thing, for us to do, is to endure patiently, but we’ve got to, by being brave, trusting and relying fully on Papa God, full of His courage, and calmly waiting it out, and that, without a lot of complaining, which includes moaning and groaning, grumbling and grousing. For after we get through all the hardships and multiple kinds of enticing allurements, we will fully experience and thoroughly enjoy our promised reward! The difficult and most arduous process, of verification, is extremely crucial, as it is most important to our growth and maturity, as believers. For eventually, when we’ve stood the test, endured every trial, trouble, provocation and multiple temptations; our faith walk will be made much stronger and we will be ready for anything, for we will be absolutely complete and lack nothing.
(James 1:2-4) The promised reward is so worth the wait of us having to endure patiently! Blessings…
