Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/30- “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: PDCP- 12/29- “Humility Is The Way—And Don’t Ever Worry!” (1 Peter 5:6-7)

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: 12/29- “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, mind and strength, 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 even begin to comprehend! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/27- “Go—Stay—Wait!” (Matthew 28:19)

Posted 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: 12/27- “Go—Stay—Wait!” (Matthew 28:19)

Premise Question: Should we, with a great sense of urgency, GO or should we just stay put, sit idly by, while patiently waiting for the world to somehow find their way, on their own, to our, The Church’s, front door?

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.”‭‭ (Matthew‬ ‭28:19‬ ‭NLT)

Therefore, because all authority in Heaven and on earth has been given to Me, The LORD Jesus Christ, I now command you, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, to not sit idly by, waiting for the world to come to you, but to make haste and quickly go out into the world, with urgency, raising up authentic followers, from every people group, everywhere in the world, training them in righteousness, teaching them The Truth, mentoring and nourishing them to maturity and baptizing them, by immersion, into the great Company of The Redeemed, in the name of The Holy Father and of His Only Son, Jesus Christ, our LORD and Savior and of The Holy Spirit, The One who comforts, guides and empowers you to do this divine work of The Most High. (Matthew 28:19 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The only time we are to stay, is to stay in The LORD’s presence and will, in order to fulfill His purpose!

The only time we are to wait, is to wait upon The LORD, in order to be endued with His efficacious power, so that, we can do and accomplish the divine work of The LORD!

Within the message of the Great Commission, you won’t find the concept, “If You Build It, They Will Come,” rather, what you specifically do find is a resounding urgent command of “GO!”

Unfortunately though, in some instances and cases, it would seem, The Church has either forgotten or completely neglected the “GO” part of the Great Commission, and perhaps, has adopted the concept of “If You Build It, (stay put and then just wait patiently) They Will Come” mentality; thereby, staying put, sitting idly by, while waiting patiently, for the Nations (people groups) of the world to come on their own initiative and somehow find their way to the front door of The Church, rather than, The Church being specifically called, commissioned and commanded, to be compelled, with a great sense of urgency and compassion, to “GO” to the Nations, building roads and paths, through right relationships and service, that will effectively reach out to them, connecting The Church to them exactly where they are; thus, fulfilling Papa God’s Great Commission! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/23- “It’s Registration Time—So Make Room In Your Heart!” (Luke 2:6-7)

Posted 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: 12/23- “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 personally 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,” who came to bring redemption, salvation and new life to all who will believe and receive, by simply calling upon The Name of The LORD—The Savior of humankind—Jesus Christ, The Messiah and King!

Something for each and everyone of us to sincerely consider during this busy season. It’s registration time, so let’s not miss out on this wonderful and most glorious opportunity to make room in our hearts for The King of kings—Jesus Christ, The Savior of humankind. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/20- “Sent To Save—Not To Judge!” (John 3:17)

Posted 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: 12/20- “Sent To Save—Not To Judge!” (John 3:17)

Premise Question: What must one do, in order to take full advantage of the wonderful provision made by Papa God, on behalf of His unique, greatly beloved and immeasurably cherished, made in His image creation—humankind?

“God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.” (John‬ ‭3:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

For The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth and everything therein, committed His beloved, Only Begotten Son, to the earth, dispatching Him to dwell in the midst of humankind, not for the purpose of pointing the finger of condemnation at them, or denouncing them, nor was it to pronounce them guilty, and then pass a sentence of punishment upon them, but to come to their rescue, by delivering them out of the darkness and the eternal punishing fire, into His glorious light; setting them free, with an emancipation proclamation of redemption, that includes an escape clause, from certain death and damnation, through Him, The Savior of humankind. (John 3:17 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Papa God, The Creator of everything, has provided us, all of humanity, with a one way ticket, in order to escape certain eternal death and damnation. For it’s only through His Son, The LORD Jesus Christ, who came, “to seek and to save” a lost and without hope, if not for Him, all those of humankind, who will call upon His Name for eternal salvation. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/19- “God Is Personally With Us!” (Isaiah 7:14)

Posted 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: 12/19- “God Is Personally With Us!” (Isaiah 7:14)

Premise Question: What meaning does The Prophet Isaiah’s prophecy, concerning The Savior of humankind, have and hold for us today?

“All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’).” (‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭7:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

As a direct consequence of you, oh king Ahaz, being afraid to trust and try The LORD, per His direct request and command to you, and because you are also full of false humility, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty Himself will affix His personal signature to a confirming manifestation, a sign, with the message of redemption, for all people everywhere, thus, obligating Himself to fulfill it in this most spectacular and miraculous way: A young, undefiled, pure woman, having not yet been with a man, will become pregnant, without ever having been with a man, and she shall bring forth and deliver, by giving birth too, The Deliverer and Savior of humankind, for He is The Divine Immaculate only Son of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, and she will call Him by this Name, Immanuel, which means, God is personally with us. (Isaiah 7:14 PDCP)

Bottom Line: What the prophet Isaiah was prophesying and looking forward to, we now can look back to; as we are now given the opportunity to be able to personally experience everyday, the wonderful peace, the glorious manifestation and everlasting presence of The LORD Jesus Christ—The Redeemer of humankind, by and through The Spirit of Papa God Himself being in our daily lives, and then, throughout all of eternity! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/18- “Live Just—Live Right, Live Just Right!” (Proverbs 21:3)

Posted 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: 12/18- “Live Just—Live Right, Live Just Right!” (Proverbs 21:3)

Premise Question: How is it even a remote possibility for someone or anyone to live right and be pleasing in The LORD’s sight?

“The LORD is more pleased when we do what is right and just than when we offer him sacrifices.” (‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭21:3‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

To be virtuous and to walk blameless before The LORD and humankind, ends up being the most important principles we can follow in this life. It’s also what is most pleasing to Him; therefore, it is the most appropriate, honorable and acceptable thing that we could ever offer up to The LORD GOD Almighty, for it is not in the degree or amount of what we may give up, walk away from, avoid, abstain from, abandon, forgo or eschew, that counts for anything, but it’s all in the way we live and comport our lives. (Proverbs 21:3 PDCP)

Bottom Line: In our own strength, talents, abilities and wherewithal, we can never buy, earn, work for or ever give enough, whereby, it would ever suffice; have the ability or even begin to have the capacity, to qualify, satisfy, please or be acceptable to The LORD! But, we can do all things and more, with The LORD’s divine help, and we will and can be filled with His justice and righteousness, when we choose to be in agreement with Him; by walking in complete obedience and in accordance with His Word, and His greatest desire and divine plan and purpose for our lives.

It is then and only then, thereby, that we can and will have the capacity to live, Just Right! Blessings…
