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: 02/27- “Verbal And Mental Abuse!” (1 Samuel 1:7)

Premise Question: What can we take and learn, from the harassing verbal and mental abusive attacks suffered by Hannah, from her close rival, and then apply it to our own similar experiences, of agonizing anguish, that we have gone through or presently may be going through?

This went on year after year. Whenever Hannah went up to the house of the Lord, her rival provoked her till she wept and would not eat.
(‭1 Samuel‬ ‭1‬:‭7‬ NIV)

Every year, like clockwork and without there ever being a respite; when it came time to go up to The LORD’S House to offer up the yearly homage, Peninnah, Hannah’s main rival for vying for her husband’s time, attention, love and affection and who she felt like she had to prove her value too, would be merciless in her harassing, pestering, taunting, demeaning, badgering, poking and provoking Hannah, to the point of, making her so upset and distraught, that she would become completely overwhelmed with anguish and grievous sorrow, which would give way to times of inconsolable crying, accompanied by excruciating pain in her heart, that made her feeling like it was going to break and explode right out of her chest. This would leave her completely exasperated and would cause her to even lose her desire to eat.
(1 Samuel 1:7 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Before, during and after: Before this verse, we are considering, Hannah was constantly being harassed and irritated by her rival, because she was barren, which by he way, was all part of Papa God’s divine plan and will for Hannah’s life, but also, before this verse, her husband had accepted and honored her even though she had not provided any offspring, son or daughter, even to the point of honoring her with a double portion, to show just how much he favored and loved her more than her torturing rival.

During the time of this verse, we are considering, Hannah wasn’t able to clearly see or experience, much less even embrace the love and acceptance, that her husband was continually expressing towards her, because she was overwhelmed and focussed on the abuse.

After, this verse, we are looking at, we find Hannah’s husband pleading with her to accept his love and to not be overwhelmed by her barrenness, but Hannah responds, by running away from the presence of the loving arms and embrace of her husband and into the loving embrace of Papa God, crying and pouring her heart out to The LORD.

So, the obvious question is: How many times do we not see the love and support of others, around us, because we are so focussed and overwhelmed by the verbal harassing, the mental anguish and abuse of the circumstances and situations that we are experiencing, so much so, that we just can’t seem to rise above it, to the place of being an Overcomer; which, by the way, because of The LORD we are, if we will cry out to Him, pouring ourselves out before Him, accepting and trusting that He will deliver us in His perfect time, in order to fulfill His divine purpose and will for our lives!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/12- “Forever Safe—In Papa God’s Hand!” (John 10:28-30)

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.

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/12- “Forever Safe—In Papa God’s Hand!”
(John 10:28-30)

Premise Question: Do believers, those who’ve placed their faith and complete trust in The LORD Jesus Christ, by calling on His Name through confession and believing in Him and His resurrection; thereby, having accepted and received Papa God’s gracious provision of a forever safe and secure eternity, ever have any reason to fear what the future may hold?

I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand. The Father and I are one.” (‭John‬ ‭10‬:‭28-30‬ NLT)

I, The LORD Jesus Christ, with great joy and delight, choose to grant to all those who hear my voice and follow after Me—life without end. A life, in which, there shall not ever be a reason for them to fear what the future may hold, for they shall forever be safe and secure, never ceasing to exist. There isn’t any power in heaven or on earth, that will ever be able to steal or take them from Me, nor will there be anyone or anything that will have the capacity or power to abduct them from Papa God’s almighty grip, as it is He that has given them to Me. Know this, Papa God and I are One. (John 10:28-30 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Nope! For according to Papa God’s faithful promise, written down in His Holy Writ, there’s not anything or anyone that is powerful enough to wrest us away from the tightly held, firm grasp of Papa God’s forever safe and secure hands; in which, He is and forever shall be, in possession of our very lives, our eternal souls. So, for the believer, they are fully assured, by The LORD God Almighty Himself, that they are forever and ever, eternally safe and secure, within His all powerful and sure, loving grip. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/22/15- “This Is How And Why Papa God Did It!” (1 John 4:9)

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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/06/15- “Note To Self—Then Too Everyone Else!” (James1:2-3)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/06/15- “Note To Self—Then Too Everyone Else!” (James 1:2-3)

Premise Question: Is there ever any good thing that can come, when we, The Company of The Redeemed, choose to complain, mumble, grumble or groan; rather than, looking at it with joy and considering it a privileged opportunity to grow and see the purpose and will of Papa God revealed in us?

“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.” (‭‭James‬ ‭1:2-3‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Acknowledge, accept and embrace the difficult times in your life. Recognize them all, as honored and privileged opportunities, to experience the ultimate in pure delight, with great felicity, my dearly beloved fellow members in The Company of The Redeemed. For whenever, whomever and wherever you may encounter these difficult people and times, which will be hardships that are numerous, varied and sundry in kind, don’t ever let any of it, in any way, throttle or disable you, due to the reality of what you should already be aware, “au courant” of and familiar with; that being, the ongoing process, in your sojourn and walk of faith, of the evaluation and verification of your full confidence and complete trust and reliance that you’ve placed upon and in The LORD GOD Almighty. This then, will have the perfect result and effect of bringing into existence into your life, not just a lofty desire, thought or wonderful aspiration, but a valiant tenacious courage, a resolute determination and steady persistence, which will empower you, enabling you to stay on, not stray from, and to walk uprightly upon the path of Papa God’s divine purpose for your life. (James 1:2-3 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Nope! Complaining, mumbling, grumbling and groaning has never brought or bought anything good or righteous into our lives! Therefore, here’s something for everyone of us to seriously consider, then diligently, with devotion and dogged determination, follow! Note to self, then to everyone else: no more giving into moaning and groaning, mumbling and grumbling, bumbling and stumbling, crumbling into a heap of desperation and despair, being depressed and oppressed, completely suppressed, kept under duress. But, choose to joyfully accept, embrace and endure the hardships in your life, as part and partial of the process, for they are only a trace of Papa God’s unique and divine purpose being fully accomplished, in your sojourn of this life. So, choose to always rejoice in the midst of your ordeal and trial, knowing full well, that His perfect purpose is soon to be fulfilled. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/05/15- “How Papa God Does Things Is A Mind-Blowing Mystery, But Also Amazingly Awesome!” (Ecclesiastes 11:5)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/05/15- “How Papa God Does Things Is A Mind-Blowing Mystery, But Also Amazingly Awesome!” (Ecclesiastes 11:5)

Premise Question: Given the reality that we cannot understand nor fully comprehend the mysteries of Papa God and life, what is it that we can do, ought to do and certainly should do?

“Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things.” (‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭11:5‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

As you are completely unaware, not having the ability nor even the capacity to know the origin of the course and direction the wind takes, or the perplexing mystery of the miracle of conception, in how the Spirit brings life to the form of a human being inside the womb of a pregnant woman, so too, the ingenious endeavors and activities of The LORD GOD Almighty is far above and beyond your ability to comprehend or fully understand. For The LORD GOD Almighty is The Author, The Originator, The Inventor, The Maker, The Builder and The Producer of all things in Heaven and on the earth, and even beyond Heaven and earth. And furthermore, there is not anything that He, Papa God, is not able to do and do excellently. (Ecclesiastes 11:5 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Papa God’s ways and thoughts, being too wonderful to fully understand or comprehend by us, because His ways, being in stark contrast to our ways and His thoughts, are much higher than ours, and therefore, should not, and in fact, is not and certainly cannot be compared. But, Papa God’s ways and thoughts can be and should be, though, fully accepted by us, by each of us placing our complete faith and utter trust and reliance in and upon Him and His ways and thoughts, as being The Only Real Truth, that merits and deserves us our having the full confidence and assurance that it is for our greatest good and benefit that He does what He does, in the way that He does all things, with love and excellence!
