Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/09/15- “There’s Only One Bona Fide Will Of Papa God!” (Romans 12:2)

Premise Question: With regards to Papa God’s will for our lives, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, are there alternatives or options given to us, such as; option (A) His “good will,” option (B) His “pleasing/acceptable will,” or option (C) His “perfect will”?

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
(Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭2‬ NLT)

Do not comply with, by trying to emulate, impersonate or imitate, the prevailing paradigm, in its fads, fashions, or standards and practices, of this age, or any age. But alter your course and actions, by deliberately choosing to be a completely different person, one that’s transformed and changed, by and through the power of Papa God, in every way and every area of your existence—in your character, attitude, behavior and even your appearance. Consistently make it your daily habitual practice to be restored and renewed continually, in your mind and heart, with and through Papa God’s Holy Word. Then, and only then, will you be able to test (verify) and know for sure, (certify) that the only acceptable (bona fide) will of Papa God for your life, is the one that pleases Him, which is a good thing, meaning it’s filled with His excellence and virtue; because, His will for your life is absolutely flawless, being perfect in every way! (Romans 12:2 PDCP)

Bottom Line: In my experience and time here on this earth, I’ve heard many different takes and presentations on this particular passage of scripture, as it relates to Papa God’s will for the believer’s life. I’ve long held a strong personal belief, a specific position and view on this particular passage and the subject matter it addresses. My view is: there is truly only one “bona fide” will of Papa God for our lives, as members of The Company of The Redeemed! It’s the one that is completely authentic, being entirely genuine, qualified, legitimate and real and can only be accomplished fully, with the enabling help and through the transforming power of Papa God’s Word and Spirit having full and free reign in our lives, in order to influence, impact and change our hearts, minds and lives.

So, here it is, my view: The only acceptable and good will of Papa God for our lives, is the one and only one, that is pleasing, pleasant, gratifying and completely satisfying to Him, and that, my friends, is perfect in every way, manner, shape and form, being His perfect will!

Some may ask or say, though, what about those who’ve blown it, at some time or occasion in their sojourn in this life? Furthermore, they may muse. How could they ever have the ability or opportunity to ever be perfect once they’ve completely blown it, by failing miserably in their walk? Papa God is the God of new beginnings…He is never at a loss for words, nor is He ever surprised by anything or anyone! He is not ever frustrated to the point of exasperation, throwing His hands in the air, without a clue, as to what to do! He is not twiddling His thumbs in boredom nor is He ever wringing His hands in worry and angst! You will not ever hear, nor has He or will He ever announce, “well, I sure didn’t see that one coming!” He never sleeps nor slumbers! (Psalms 121:4) His eye is even on the smallest sparrow! (Matthew 10:29) He sees all! He knows all! (Proverbs 24:12) He makes all things beautiful in His time! (Ecclesiastes 3:11) He is aware of everything!

He is never ever without the perfect plan or strategy to completely restore, renew, reconcile and accomplish His perfect divine will, plan and purpose for our lives, for His glory! He is more than able to do this, as He, Papa God, sees and knows everything from the end all the way back to the beginning! (Isaiah 46:10) He will not settle for anything less than His perfect will for our lives, and He doesn’t have to, because He will do whatever it takes, in order to accomplish His divine plan, purpose and will for His own! (Hebrews 7:25) Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/08- “Accusation, Condemnation, Reproach—Now There Is None!” (Romans 8:1-2)

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: 04/08- “Accusation, Condemnation, Reproach—Now There Is None!” (Romans 8:1-2)

Premise Question: What does it truly mean, for every member of The Company of The Redeemed, to now, no longer be subject to being severely punished and rightly judged for their own transgressing of the righteous requirements of Papa God’s Holy, being perfectly just, righteous law?

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭1-2‬ NLT)

Consequently, as a result of what Papa God accomplished through the sacrificial offering of His Only Son, Jesus Christ, hanging and dying upon a cruel cross; we, who believe, are now put in good standing with Papa God and His Son, The LORD Jesus Christ. For we are now recognized, as full fledged members of The Company of The Redeemed and thereby, have now, been set free from the powerful bands of wickedness of the law of sin, which ultimately leads to eternal death, by Papa God’s all powerful, life-giving Holy Spirit. And, furthermore, are now thus, no longer subject to being condemned, for our own transgressing of Papa God’s righteous law, but can now, live free, by the potent efficacy of the life-giving Holy Spirit, which fills us with the strength, ability and capacity to live a new life, by setting aside completely the righteous required judgement, upon our lives, of a rightly deserved death sentence. (Rom. 8:1-2 PDCP)

Bottom Line: What it truly means, for those of us who believe, is: Jesus took our place, by taking and receiving upon Himself, our own death sentence, so that, we could then experience the ultimate immunity and pardon of being set completely free; thereby, avoiding a just and right sentence of eternal punishment and ultimate death.

He took the total blame and disapproval of Papa God, so that, we could be held blameless and approved by Papa God, as being declared justifiably righteous in His sight, by having The Great Seal of Approval of The Holy Spirit put upon and inside us, within the within, of our innermost being.

Accusation, Condemnation and Reproach—now there is none to be found!

This is therefore now, the only reason why we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, can instantly enjoy all of the benefits and blessings, to the fullest extent, of our new found freedom and new life in Christ! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/07- “Leave An Example, A Legacy To Be Followed And Emulated By Others, Of Working Hard, Always Endeavoring To Give Relief And Remedy To Those In Need!” (Acts 20:35 PDCP)

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: 04/07- “Leave An Example, A Legacy To Be Followed And Emulated By Others, Of Working Hard, Always Endeavoring To Give Relief And Remedy To Those In Need!” (Acts 20:35 PDCP)

Premise Question: What will be said and remembered about the example that we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, leave as a legacy for others to see and follow, with regards to our diligence, devotion and earnest effort, of working hard, to make sure that we’ve met the needs of others, with the needed provision, teaching/mentoring, nurturing and the appropriate help that will enable them to successfully overcome the challenges of life?

And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ” (‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭20‬:‭35‬ NLT)

As I, Paul, have not ever wavered in my effort and great exertion, always striving and endeavoring to be completely reliable, persistent and perpetually consistent, in setting the perfect example, which should be followed by everyone, of how to serve and contribute, in order to bring relief and remedy to those who are in great peril and need; I also exhort you to be wise and really prudent, which will be extremely pleasing to Papa God, for all of us to recall the strong word of exhortation and the perfect example left, by The LORD Jesus, when He declared: “It is much more blissful, being full of supreme joy and great favor, to provide for and facilitate the needs of others, rather than, having your own needs furnished and provided by others; for the greatest blessing is in the giving, not the receiving!” (Acts 20:35 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The answer to the Premise Question is quite simple: Love and serve Papa God and love and serve people! (Matthew 22:37-40, 1 John 4:11) Treat others as you would prefer others to treat you! (Matthew 7:12, “The Golden Rule”) Accept what Papa God says is good and what He requires and expects from us, which is: Do what is just and right, with integrity; constantly show lovingkindness and mercy towards others; and last but not least, clothe yourself with humility, by walking in devoted obedience and in sweet fellowship with Papa God! (Micah 6:8) Do these things faithfully and with consistence, and you will be successful in leaving a wonderful example and legacy for others to emulate and follow! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/06- “Just This One Thing!” (Psalms 27:4)

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: 04/06- “Just This One Thing!” (Psalms 27:4)

Premise Question: What should we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, aspire to become, as it relates to this unique request and deep desire of the Psalmist David?

The one thing I ask of the LORD — the thing I seek most— is to live in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, delighting in the LORD’s perfections and meditating in his Temple. (‭Psalms‬ ‭27‬:‭4‬ NLT)

The consummate existence and supreme experience that I am requesting of You, O LORD, for it is my ultimate quest and the thing I earnestly desire and urgently chase after; is to dwell in the place of Your manifest presence, Your heavenly abode, for every day of my earthly existence and even extending beyond my mortal existence into eternity, to always enjoy The LORD GOD Almighty’s excellence and His holiness, being allowed to stay in deep contemplation and thought, while ruminating and worshiping forever in The Temple of The Most High. (Psalms 27:4 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, should aspire to become The LORD’s “Sanctuary of Praise” (Psalms 68:35, 27:6) “Temple of Worship” (Psalms 5:7, 138:2) “House of Prayer” (Luke 19:46, Isaiah 56:7) “House of Power” (Acts 1:8, 1 Corinthians 2:4, Ephesians 1:19) and His authentic “Household of Faith” (Galatians 6:10, Titus 3:14, James 1:27). I leave you with a scripture, which I believe, encompasses it all!

O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water. I have seen you in your sanctuary and gazed upon your power and glory. Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you! I will praise you as long as I live, lifting up my hands to you in prayer. You satisfy me more than the richest feast. I will praise you with songs of joy. I lie awake thinking of you, meditating on you through the night. Because you are my helper, I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings. I cling to you; your strong right hand holds me securely. (‭Psalms‬ ‭63‬:‭1-8‬ NLT) Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/05- “Jesus Is The Resurrection And The Life!” (John 11:25-26)

Posted on Updated on

04/05-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: 04/05- “Jesus Is The Resurrection And The Life!” (John 11:25-26)

Premise Question: Do you, who’s now reading this and are at present, a living and breathing soul, being a member of humankind existing now here on earth, do you now believe?

Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this, Martha?” (‭John‬ ‭11‬:‭25-26‬ NLT)

With an emphatically expressed announcement, Jesus discloses the truth, with authority, about resurrection and life, to Martha, the sister of Lazarus, who had just died a few days before, and to everyone else in the earth, by declaring the truth, “I am the resurrection and life; Therefore, anyone anywhere, everyone everywhere, in the world, if they will choose to put their complete trust and confidence in Me, by believing and relying on Me in this life, will continue to live on, even after they experience a physical death, because they have chosen to live their existence, here on earth, by putting their faith and trust in Me, and thereby, essentially, they shall not ever experience ultimate death! Do you, Martha and anyone anywhere, everyone everywhere else in the world, believe this? (John 11:25-26 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The quintessential question that Jesus asked Martha and essentially, continues to ask everyone, everywhere else that has ever or will ever live on this earth, and which still holds the urgent truth for today and beyond, for it is still, without question, the most relevant, being the salient, pertinent and germane question of this hour and every hour of each and every day for all of humankind to answer! Do you believe that Jesus IS the resurrection and the life? Do you accept that death was and is no match for Jesus, and that there isn’t any amount of worry, grief or anything that’s ever happened in your past, that Jesus hasn’t already or essentially cannot now or in the future overcome? The best response today to these questions is the same as it was yesterday, today and forever! Yes I believe! Jesus Christ is my LORD and Savior! My complete trust, confidence and faith, is in Him and Him alone! Thank you Papa God for Your incredible gift of Your Son! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/04- “The Spirit Of Papa God Gives Life!” (Romans 8:11)

Posted on Updated on

04/04-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: 04/04- “The Spirit Of Papa God Gives Life!” (Romans 8:11)

Premise Question: Besides the obvious and most excellent benefit of receiving everlasting life; what is the greatest benefit, being the most helpful one, for living our lives now, that we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, have received as a direct result of having The Spirit of Papa God living in our finite, being perishable, earthly bodies?

The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you. (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭11‬ NLT)

Not only have you been put right with Papa God, but when His Spirit, The Holy Spirit, which is the One who was charged with the responsibility of restoring life back into The Savior’s deceased earthly body, by raising Him up from the grave, has taken up permanent residence within you; then, you too shall have your finite, being temporal and perishable, earthly body restored back to life, in the very same way and manner that The LORD had His earthly body restored, as this also is accomplished by and through the same Spirit of Papa God that now lives and resides within the within of your innermost being. (Romans 8:11)

Bottom Line: The greatest benefit that we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, have and enjoy, is full, free and unfettered access to the empowering presence, comfort and refreshing, as well as, the divine guidance and wisdom of Papa God’s Spirit, The Holy Spirit; who helps us to overcome and be victorious in every area of our lives, but especially in the intense struggle that rages within each one of us between our old sinful nature and its desires and our new life and its new nature that desires to honor and please Papa God. Therefore, we ought to continually thank Papa God for His life giving Spirit that lives deep within the within of our innermost beings. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/03- “Papa God’s Love, Put On Display, For All To See!” (Romans 5:8)

Posted on Updated on

04/03-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: 04/03- “Papa God’s Love, Put On Display, For All To See!” (Romans 5:8)

Premise Question: Why did Papa God put on such a remarkable, spectacular exhibition and display, of His magnanimity, His incomparable gracious favor and His marvelous love, for all to clearly see?

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (‭Romans‬ ‭5‬:‭8‬ NLT)

Even so, Papa God clearly proved and made it known to everyone everywhere, with a spectacularly huge in magnitude, being utterly incomparable, display of His extravagantly magnanimous perfect love for all of humankind, by dispatching from Heaven, His One and only Son, The Agent of righteous redemption, The Anointed One, to hang upon a cruel cross for each and everyone of our sinful transgressions. And, that’s not all, for incredible as it may seem, He actually did this, amazingly enough, even while we were at our very worst and still His enemies; being in a helpless, hapless, hopeless and completely unrepentant and unredeemed deathlike state. (Romans 5:8 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Why? Because of this one great preeminent desire and divine purpose: The salvation and complete redemption of all of humankind; restoring, renewing and healing the breach, spanning the chasm, reconciling and bringing back to life, into a right and loving relationship with Papa God, in order to fully experience satisfying sweet fellowship, with His greatly cherished, being most precious and dearly loved, made in His own image, creation, His heart’s desire, humankind! (John 3:16) Blessings…
