SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/05- “Real Authentic Service Unto And Worship Of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty!” (Romans 12:1)

Premise Question: With respect to our service to and worship of The LORD GOD Almighty, what is considered and regarded as being truly authentic, entirely appropriate, absolutely suitable and completely acceptable, by Him?

“And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.” (Romans‬ ‭12:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

As a result and consequence of all things that are good, righteous and holy coming from Papa God, through Papa God and ultimately for Papa God, I urgently implore you, my greatly beloved fellow members of The Company of The Redeemed, to take in the full landscape of goodness that stretches out before you and completely surrounds you, with His magnificent, marvelous mercy, in panoramic vision, beyond your ability to see or comprehend fully. Now that you have been made fully aware of this wonderful knowledge, I strongly encourage you to live your daily lives accordingly; by diligently, with strong and complete devotion, offering up your bodies to Him—The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, in such a fashion, way and manner, that doesn’t focus on self-centered, self-seeking ambitions, to be spent entirely on your own pleasures and self-desires, but is a life that is, first and foremost, sacrificially, spent on pleasing The only true, pure and righteous, Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, in every area of your life; while also, serving and meeting the needs of others as well. In so doing, you display a true and honorable, being sensible, reasonable and the most appropriate way to show your authentic service to and worship of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty. (Romans 12:1 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The only worship that is truly acceptable to The LORD GOD Almighty, is our genuinely heartfelt, authentically expressed, unquestionable loyalty and faithfulness, to always be fully devoted, in complete abandonment, in our praise and worship, our honor and total veneration of and for Him! For He is not ever going to be pleased with a cheap imitation or copy that’s half-hearted, convenient, non-offensive to others or based on what is acceptable and popular (trend or fad) with the present ruling majority.

In order for our worship to be totally accepted as being entirely appropriate and therefore, absolutely apropos, we must set ourselves apart from everything else; becoming sacred and reserved only for His holy and honorable use, in order to fulfill His divine will and purpose, bringing all glory, honor and praise to His Name.

For it is only when we are willing to accommodate The LORD GOD Almighty, by allowing and giving Him full and free rein in our lives, so that, His divine will and purpose for our lives, shall take full affect in our lives, that we are able to offer up a well deserved, being a more than reasonable and completely respectable, acceptably suitable, service and worship unto Him.

Remember, Papa God is not asking us to do anything that is unreasonable nor impossible, because with the help and enabling of The LORD GOD, nothing is out of the realm of possibility, as all things are possible, with Papa God, to those that believe!

Stay real, always be genuine and authentic, in your worship and service of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/04- “Papa God Pleasers Or People Pleasers, We Must Choose!” (Galatians 1:10 NLT)

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: 11/04- “Papa God Pleasers Or People Pleasers, We Must Choose!” (Galatians 1:10 NLT)

Premise Question: Why does, or would someone, who is a member of The Company of The Redeemed—Papa God’s very own chosen and cherished, precious and dearly beloved people, ever choose to be a “people pleaser” over, or rather than, choosing to be a “Papa God pleaser?”

“Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.”
(‭‭Galatians‬ ‭1:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

If you even think for one minute, that I’m the least bit interested in winning the approval and acceptance of fickle humankind, in any way shape or form, or that I will ever make a feigned attempt to have it appear to be so, through the appeasement and accommodation of people, then you are sadly, as well as gravely mistaken. Because the only one I want or need to please, and thereby, gain His seal of approval, is The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty! For when I endeavor to make it my ambition, my intent, focus or goal in life, to be acceptable and pleasing to people, first off, that’s always an endeavor that’s doomed for failure from the start. But most importantly, I then lose sight of my divine purpose and goal for this life! And then, as a direct result, I also lose my bearings, unction and credibility of what it means, and what it is to be a humble, faithful and honorable servant of The Most High Papa God. I must make a choice, as a faithful servant of The LORD. For I am either going to be a “people pleaser” or a “Papa God pleaser.” I can’t be both! It’s one or the other! So choose this day who you are going to please. (Galatians 1:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Why does, or would a person, who is a member of The Company of The Redeemed, ever choose to please people over choosing to please Papa God? This is a glaring and quite obvious question to be asked and answered; given the magnitude of the vast differences, along with the extremely divergent resulting repercussions, that will take place in a person’s life, when choosing to be a “people pleaser,” over and above, or rather than, choosing to be a “Papa God pleaser.”

There are a myriad of reasons, justifications, mitigating circumstances or situations that may be given or in fact, may be used to answer why someone may succumb or choose to please people rather than Papa God: Peer pressure, greed, pride, seeking the acceptance and approval of others, wanting to be loved and embraced by others, having a desire to be one of or part of the crowd, the feeling or need to be appreciated and adored, or to want the adulation, applause, recognition and praise of others, (fame) to fill up the void and lack of self-worth that is embedded deep within a person’s heart or psyche, or it may even be out of being fearful of others and what or how they may think of or perceive you.

It is not my intent, nor is it my true desire, to downplay, denigrate, insinuate, or in anywise, minimize the huge challenges and struggles that may confront a person, who is on their own particular path and sojourn in this life, whether it be imagined or real!

All of our hearts, our thoughts and compassion, our prayers and understanding support should, in great measure, go out to those who are living their lives in such a quandary and tumultuous state and plight. For all or any one of us, either has, or at some point, in our own particular and unique sojourn, perhaps, will experience the same challenges and struggles.

So we ought not to be so quick to make snap evaluations, conclusions or judgements. Remember the old saying: “until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes, you may want to hold onto your final conclusion or judgement!” Better yet, if we have walked in their shoes, then perhaps, we should be the very first person to be an encouraging blessing of refreshing, comfort, peace and understanding.

Finally, for when all is said and done, and our time here in this life is over, no matter what the reason why was, it will definitely not ever be to our benefit, useful, or worth it, to choose to be a “people pleaser” over choosing to be a “Papa God pleaser;” but rather, it will most certainly be to our everlasting, never ending, eternal detriment! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/28- “Get Right And Stay Right—By Daily Walking And Staying In The Light!” (1 John 1:7)

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: 10/28- “Get Right And Stay Right—By Daily Walking And Staying In The Light!” (1 John 1:7)

Premise Question: Beyond being able to live in Papa God’s Holy Light, (even as Papa God is in The Light and in Him there is no darkness) as a result of receiving Papa God’s provision of salvation and a cleansing from all of our sin, and then, having the wonderful opportunity of enjoying great fellowship with others who are also living in Papa God’s Holy Light, what is it then, that we should be doing?

“But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.” (‭‭1 John‬ ‭1:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

But, if you really want to be able to see where you’re going (headed) in life, without stumbling around in the dark, you’ll need to make it your daily habitual practice to live and walk in the light of Papa God’s holy presence—His Son, Jesus Christ, as He is the pure essence and only true source of Papa God’s holy light; being the authentic personification and exact representation of His Father—The Only True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty! This then, allows us to experience true intimacy and close communion, not only with each other, but with The LORD GOD Almighty as well; because it is only the sacrificial blood of Jesus, Papa God’s only begotten Son, that washes us clean, purging and absolving us completely, clearing the way and paying the debt owed, by throughly removing all the shame, all the guilt and all of our transgressions of Papa God’s Holy Divine Righteous Law. (1 John 1:7 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Get right: by receiving and accepting Papa God’s most merciful and gracious provision of cleansing and salvation, through the shed blood of His Only Son, Jesus Christ—The Light of the world!

Stay right: by making it your daily habit and practice, (a way of life) to live and dwell, walk and work, everyday of your life, in Papa God’s Holy Light!

Don’t ever pull away, fade away, stray or walk away, out from under Papa God’s Holy Light, but always pray and continue to stay, deliberately dwelling, devotedly walking and diligently working, by choosing to always daily live in Papa God’s holy light, the presence of His Son—Jesus Christ!

For as Papa God is living in The Light of the world—His Only Son Jesus Christ, so too, is The Light of the world now living in us, who have been called out of darkness, into His glorious Light, to become the changed/transformed children of The Light, in order to shine bright in the darkness, to then draw others out of the darkness into Papa God’s Holy Light!

P-L-U-G (People Living Under God) into the L-I-G-H-T (Living In God’s Holy Tent) by daily living your life in the light and presence of The LORD!

We, The Company of The Redeemed, are now called to be His personal representatives, His ambassadors of hope and of His Holy Light to the world; and therefore, now should live our lives by and through the empowering presence of His Light living inside of us; allowing The Light to shine through us, so that everyone can clearly see Papa God’s Holy Light! Get right and stay right by daily walking, staying and living in The Light! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/23- “We’ve Been Granted Freedom To Be Free And To Stay Free!” (Galatians 5:1)

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: 10/23- “We’ve Been Granted Freedom To Be Free And To Stay Free!” (Galatians 5:1)

Premise Question: Once any of us has been released from the bondage of sin, having been set free from the perilous darkness and certain death sentence, and are hereby, now a full fledged member of The Company of The Redeemed, having truly tasted and fully experienced the real freedom that only Jesus Christ can provide, with all of its blessings and benefits, why would any of us ever choose to return to our previous state of hopelessness, held in captivity, and in bondage to our sinful plight?

“So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.” (Galatians‬ ‭5:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

It is for our great benefit of individual personal liberty, that Christ has provided freedom to all who choose to become members of The Company of The Redeemed; granting them the ability to move freely, while enjoying all the rights and privileges afforded to them, because they’ve been released and set free from the penalty of sin, which is eternal death and destruction. Therefore, stay strong, firm and resolute in the wonderful knowledge and blessed assurance of your freedom; not allowing yourself to ever become entangled by the strangling cords and heavy weights of the onerous obligations of an agency of oppression, that’s restrictive and controlling, by putting you, once again, back into restraints of bondage and captivity. (Galatians 5:1 PDCP)

Bottom Line: What a great premise question for all of us to ponder, and to seriously, with grave sincerity, consider.

To expound upon the premise question even further; why would any of us, after having tasted and experienced The LORD’s goodness and gentleness, His mercy and kindness, His gracious favor, and real freedom, ever subject ourselves again to being under the influence and control of the brutal authorities, the powers of darkness and evil rulers of this world?

There are many reasons that can possibly be given, even some of them, could quite probably, fall under the heading of mitigating circumstances; but most, if not all of them, can be attributed to our own personal decisions and choices, our own actions, behaviors, thoughts, habits, practices and weaknesses, and especially, our own inappropriate personal desires!

Here are just a select few that we all need to be aware and extremely leery of, for our own benefit and well being, as well as, for the benefit and good of those around us: Isolation, insulation, arrogance and pride, being full of conceit, self confidence and pomposity, given to being slothful and lazy, lacking discipline and integrity, being anemic and weak, due to an insufficient prayer life, a lack of fellowship and intimacy with The LORD—through spending quality time in His Word and a significant and sufficient amount of time in worship and praise of Him, both personally and corporately, with other believers.

We are too prone to worry, self-doubt, self-hate, self-loathing, being fearful, full of anxiety, shame and remorse, allowing ourselves to be overwhelmed by all of this and more, and then, becoming completely exasperated, whereby we end up yielding and then finally succumbing to failure and defeat.

Other mitigating reasons, valid or invalid, perhaps may include sleep deprivation, deception, falling prey to some scheme, snare or trap, thus becoming entangled in an intricate plan and web of deceit and despair, taken advantage of in a moment of weakness and vulnerability, thus becoming entrapped and ensnared by the actions, will and desires of someone else.

Or there is always the established sage wisdom and obvious accepted fact, that a fool and his money, as well as his good reputation, will soon be separated! Added to that sage statement is the one from Solomon: “As a dog returns to his vomit, so too, a fool returns to his own folly!”

But, we are not without hope! Even if we have fallen prey to our own devices or the devices and schemes of others or even life itself and all of its vagaries and vicissitudes! We can be set free, we are set free, we can continue to stay free, if we will not allow ourselves to once again be enslaved by our own devices, and thus, become subject again to the laws of sin, death and the rulers, principalities and authorities of this world! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/19- “Don’t Be Consumed With What Tomorrow May Hold—For We Only Ever Have Today!” (Matthew 6:34)

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: 10/19- “Don’t Be Consumed With What Tomorrow May Hold—For We Only Ever Have Today!” (Matthew 6:34)

Premise Question: Why are we, as those who have been cleansed, redeemed and set free, having been justified through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, still prone to fret, worry and to being filled with anxiety; allowing our anxious thoughts to rule and consume us, about what may or may not happen tomorrow or in the future, when we have this blessed promise and admonition of The Savior, and can really only live each day, living by faith and putting our trust and hope in The LORD, as each day unveils itself to us?

““So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” (Matthew‬ ‭6:34‬ ‭NLT)

So, as a consequence of having all that you’ll ever have need of, in your daily life, provided to you by The LORD, you are now able to fully devote all of your attention to living life to the fullest, each and every day that you’ve been given. Therefore, it is foolish then to trouble or torment yourself, by being overly concerned about whether or not your daily needs will be provided for in a future time; such as, tomorrow, which you don’t even have the ability to live in anyway, as you only ever have today, each new day, to live and experience your life to the fullest! And besides, the future comes what may, regardless of whether you are adequately prepared for it or not; and by the way, today, this day, the only day you will ever actually have, has sufficient concern enough all by itself. (Matthew 6:34 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, can still be subject and prone to fretting, worrying and being filled and controlled by our anxious thoughts, if we dwell on them; the actual or even the potentiality for severe trouble, difficult trials and the hardships of terrible tribulation!

The LORD has told us, in a myriad of ways, to not be afraid or to let our hearts be troubled, nor our emotions, situations or circumstances to rule or control us, and to not be anxious about anything, but to always put our faith, trust and hope in Him, by praying, believing and then, receiving a peace and joy that is beyond our comprehension, and that can only come from Him, who has promised that we would have trouble, trial and tribulation in our lives, in this world, but, in spite and in view of all that, to still be joyful and full of cheer about it, no matter what, because He has overcome this world and all of its troubles, trials and tribulations! And because He has, so shall we!

King David, while writing one of the psalms, came to the realization that anytime he started fretting, worrying or became anxious about something, it never produced anything that was good, right or holy, and tended to only result in producing evil. So, let us trust The LORD in each day, as it comes to us, and leave tomorrow and the future in the more than sufficient and capable, all knowing, all powerful and overcoming hands and ultimate purview of The One who holds not only tomorrow in His hands, but all of our tomorrow’s in His hands; for we only really ever have today! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/18- “Trust Your Friends Rebuke—Don’t Ever Trust An Enemy’s Compliments!” (Proverbs 27:5-6)

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: 10/18- “Trust Your Friends Rebuke—Don’t Ever Trust An Enemy’s Compliments!” (Proverbs 27:5-6)

Premise Question: Are we wise and mature enough to recognize and accept an open rebuke from a dear and close friend, when it’s for our own good and benefit; or are we so shallow, sensitive and thin skinned, that we live, yearn and thrive, only on the compliments of others, and even if and when it’s a detriment to our own well being, are we still willing and subject too, accepting the adulation and excessive compliments that come from an avowed enemy?

“An open rebuke is better than hidden love! Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy.” (Proverbs‬ ‭27:5-6‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

When you truly love and approve of someone, it’s much more virtuous and acceptable to be open and transparent with them, by administering a firm, but gentle rebuke, when appropriate! Hurtful insults that causes anguish, distress and heartache, which results in producing heartbreak, actually are trustworthy, when they come from a close friend, who has your best interest and well being at heart. But, deceitful, excessive compliments, with expressions of feigned affections are nothing but lies, and especially so, when they come from an avowed enemy. (Proverbs 27:5-6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Unfortunately, all too many of us receive our sense of self-worth and validation entirely from others; through the expressions and comments that are uttered with wonderful sounding platitudes and high praise!

Not that being complementary of others is all bad, per se, because we ought to give honor where honor is due, and we ought to build each other up, through encouraging and by refreshing one another.

But we also ought to be mature and grownup enough to be able to receive strong correction and appropriate discipline, when and where it is needed; administered in the form of a gentle, but firm, righteous rebuke from a loved and respected, highly regarded, brother or sister in The LORD!

That we should be loving, kind, generous, respectful and considerate of one another, should be quite obvious and entirely apparent to everyone! But it should also be just as obvious and apparent to everyone, that being open and transparent, authentic and real, with each other, is just as vitally critical, as it will truly, (by having this perspective and attitude, and then actually implementing and doing it) prove our love, compassion, kindness, generosity, respect and consideration for one another!

Dear LORD, help each and everyone of us to mature and grow up in such a way, that we will not be susceptible to being wooed, influenced or swayed, by the compliments of others, including our avowed enemies; but that we will be strong and courageous, standing firm in our faith—unmovable, always being open and ready to receive, with joy, an appropriate and open rebuke, accompanied by righteous correction!

Remember, receiving an appropriate open rebuke and righteous correction, really is for our own benefit, our greatest good and interest, as well as, our overall spiritual well being. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/12- “Blessing And Cursing Ought Not To Come From The Same Source And Same Place!” (James 3:10)

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: 10/12- “Blessing And Cursing Ought Not To Come From The Same Source And Same Place!” (James 3:10)

Premise Question: How can blessing and cursing come from the same source and place, and is this even possible; and why should we ever give any credence to or be tolerant of it, and finally, how and what can and should we do about confronting it?

“And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth. Surely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right!” (‭‭James‬ ‭3:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

What is this that I’m hearing, coming from your mouths; both, expressions of appreciation, grateful homage, with high acclaim and devotion, as well as, expressions of profane obscenities that are blasphemous, filled with obloquial hurtful abusive language? My most beloved and cherished fellow members of The Company of The Redeemed, this should not be occurring, as it is completely unacceptable and incongruent behavior, that should never be a part of our common practice, as believers in Jesus Christ. (James 3:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Oh, but it all too often, unfortunately, ends up being reality and is the case! The reason why one can have both blessing and cursing, coming, seemingly, from the same source, is because there has been some kind of pollution spill at the place of the pure fountainhead source, the heart, and then, it flows out from there as no longer being pure, but polluted, convoluted and diluted by the essence of what is contained within the spewing, spouting, spilling of raw filthy sewage, emanating from a polluted heart; which then targets and delivers its vileness, to its intended recipients, with a poisonous and gushing tongue! Most often, it has a negative affect on more than just its intended victims, as there is always an overflow of this kind of expression!

We must not ever allow our pure source, our hearts, which have been cleansed and made pure by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, that was applied to our hearts, at the time of our salvation conversion experience, to once again become polluted with vile and sinful practices and behaviors, nor bitterness, resentment and a reluctance or reticence to us being unwilling to walk in release and extend forgiveness whenever and to whomever, as is needed and necessary.

We must always be cognizant and aware of our credibility and reputation, needing to be established and kept, as it is always going to be put on display for all to see; especially those that are still in darkness and needing to be set free. So, therefore, we must not ever act in a way that is unbecoming to a follower of Jesus Christ, but if and when we do, which some of us most certainly have done or will do, perhaps even yet again, we must choose to immediately, with humility, sue for peace, seek the mercy and forgiveness of Papa God and others, and then begin again, with the powerful and efficacious cleansing that comes as a result of our confession and repentance.

The issue of blessing and cursing coming from seemingly the same delivery source—our mouths, should never be tolerated and should always be confronted swiftly; by ourselves within ourselves, and also by those who are spiritual, and who will, in love, with a humble, gentle, merciful and kind spirit, and with the divine and intentional purpose of bringing restoration, healing and reconciliation, into the life of the one being held accountable.

Remember, dearly beloved brothers and sisters, The Holy Writ declares that: Out of the preponderance of what is contained in the abundance of the heart, the mouth is filled with it, and the tongue spews and vomits it out all over anyone that is close enough to be spilled all over, with its vileness.

But, if the source is kept pure and the mouth and tongue is under control and kept clean, then there is much blessing, encouragement and refreshing that shall gush forth and pour over anyone close by!

Each and every day, we have a choice, we can choose to either spread Papa God’s GRACE, or spray man’s MACE! GRACE is: God’s Redeeming Atonement Covers Everyone! MACE is: Misery, Antagonism, Criticism, Entangling!

When our hearts are free of debris, then it’s easy to spread Papa God’s GRACE! So, keep your heart free of debris, flush the flesh and stay refreshed, and you’ll be a refreshing and a wellspring of blessings to others, as well! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/07- “Nowhere Near—Close Enough To Hear!” (Proverbs 15:29)

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: 10/07- “Nowhere Near—Close Enough To Hear!” (Proverbs 15:29)

Premise Question: How can a person, being seen by The LORD, be looked at, as being upright and righteous?

“The LORD is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayers of the righteous.”
(‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭15:29‬ ‭NLT)

The LORD GOD Almighty is far removed, being a long ways off and nowhere to be found, from the iniquitous—those who are shameless and morally depraved. But, He is always close enough to hear and perceive, by inclining Himself, in a favorable manner and disposition, towards the humble and contrite petitions, entreaties, supplications and requests offered up in prayer, by the righteous—those who are upright and blameless, in their lives. (Proverbs 15:29 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Answer…By staying far away from the things that The LORD calls wicked; things that corrupt the heart and soul, the mind and body, and can keep and prevent the spirit from ever blossoming and flourishing—kept from ever being full of life or fulfilling and accomplishing Papa God’s divine purpose and will for their life.

Papa God’s Holy Writ admonishes us to run away from anything that feeds and satisfies our lustful and sinfully wicked desires. Rather, we are exhorted to earnestly pursue, with all vigilance and devotion, a righteous and pure life; one that’s characterized and accompanied by faithfulness, love and peace, as well as one that’s able to enjoy, to the fullest, the company of the righteous and pure of heart.

Papa God’s Holy Writ, without any equivocation, declares that there hasn’t ever been, is not and shall never be any peace for the wicked! But for the righteous, they will experience real peace and quiet, a calm assurance, with confidence, that comes from Papa God’s unfailing love and pure unadulterated truth meeting and coming together in a wonderful embrace, as righteousness and peace share an intense and passionate kiss!

So, if we want The LORD to be close enough to not only hear our prayers, but then embrace and give us a kiss of affection and endearment, we absolutely need to shun all evil and then approach The LORD, with a humble and contrite spirit; pursuing Him, seeking Him and His righteousness! It is then, that we will truly have all that we will ever need in this life—Him! Blessings…

“Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.”
‭‭(Matthew‬ ‭24:35‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

“The heavens above and the earth below, will one day no longer be seen nor even exist; becoming but a faint and distant memory, perhaps only scarcely remembered, but the words that I have spoken and declared this day, shall never be diminished in any way, for they are Truth and Life and shall therefore, last forever and a day, even into infinity and beyond, says The LORD!” (Matthew 24:35 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The absolute definitive, as it is the most assuredly, completely faithful and true, as well as being the only real answer is: Every single word, meaning all of the words, including the smallest and tiniest of words, and even every seemingly insignificant punctuation dot and mark, that The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty has ever spoken, recorded and written down, or will yet utter, not any of them will in any wise or way, ever be diminished, deluded, wear thin or wear out or be watered down; nor will any of them ever fade away, pass away or expire! For there has not been, is not now, nor will there ever be an expiration date on any of the words that The LORD has spoken, recorded and written down and brought into existence. They shall never not exist, nor lose any of their efficacy and life giving power!

Empires, kingdoms, governments, nations, rulers, leaders, will rise and fall, lasting only but a season, but The Kingdom of The LORD will always be and shall not ever have an end! Cultures, trends and fads will come and go, but The LORD’s Kingdom Culture will never cease to exist!

There is only one thing that will outlast and prevail forever, over everything and everyone else, without end: It most assuredly and with full certitude is The LORD’s words; that He is the same yesterday, today and forever! He doesn’t and won’t ever change!

His love is an everlasting unfailing love. He will never reject or turn away from the humble and contrite of heart. He is always ready to forgive, reconcile, restore and renew.

He is a merciful Papa God, who loves to show mercy and kindness, with great generosity.

His grace and favor is always going to be sufficient enough to satisfy and cover whatever needs to be addressed in our lives.

And finally, He promises to meet all our needs, give us hope, joy, comfort and peace, and has vowed to never abandon, leave or forsake His own! And, furthermore, we are His own, because He has purchased and redeemed us through the loving sacrificial gracious gift of His Son, our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ!

Papa God’s words, all of them, are faithful and true and shall forever and ever endure, without end! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/27- “Papa God’s Spirit Lives Inside Us!”
(1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

Premise Question: Having this indisputable knowledge of our miraculous transformation, of knowing that The Spirit of The Most High lives and dwells inside all of us who’ve called upon The Name of The LORD, because of the revealed truth in Papa God’s Holy Writ—The Scriptures; why does it seem and appear, at times, that some of us, in The Company of The Redeemed, act and comport ourselves as if we are completely unaware of and totally oblivious too, this established, verifiable fact, and most glorious obvious truth?

“Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.”
(‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭6:19-20‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Are you still yet unaware, of the miraculous transformation that has occurred inside your body; that of you becoming the very dwelling place of The Spirit of The Most High, who is The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, from Whom you have obtained this marvelous miracle of His very presence taking up residence inside of you? Therefore, you are no longer on your own, hopelessly lost, destitute and without a promising future, but you have been purchased, at a great cost to Papa God Himself; for He has redeemed you, to become His very own, by and through the sacrifice of The Lamb of God, His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ. Now, since this is the case, (reality) the more prudent way, with the greatest benefits and blessings, is to always choose to give due reverence and proper respect, to The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, by honoring Him in your bodies. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Many of us, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, perhaps, really need to have a reminder wake up call, to the actual reality of, that it is the actual Spirit of The Living God, The Holy Spirit of The Most High, that has now taken up residence, within the within, of the innermost part of every one of us who have called upon The Name of The LORD for personal salvation. In essence, each of our bodies have now become a holy temple and the very dwelling place of Papa God’s Spirit!

So, once we’ve truly come to the full realization of this truth, which is the absolutely incredible, being the most miraculous and marvelous transformation that could ever take place in any person’s life, we should make sure to always honor the presence of The LORD’s Spirit living and dwelling inside of us; by keeping our bodies clean and pure, by staying away from partaking of or participating in, anything that would sully or defile our body, which is the very temple of Papa God’s Spirit.

Nor should we ever diminish our testimony or reputation, by giving our bodies over to sinful practices and behaviors, and thereby, end up grieving and hurting Papa God’s Spirit and His reputation and testimony among humankind.

None of us should ever try to manage, escape or circumvent the knowledge of this wonderful truth! What we should do, though, is avoid, no matter the cost, from ever giving in to our base nature and acting as if we are ignorant and unaware of the tremendous high cost that was expended on our behalf, by Papa God!

Therefore, recognize who you are and who it is that is living inside of you, and then, honor Him always, in and with your body, at all times, on all occasions and in every situation and circumstance you may encounter or go through in this life!

Please remember, the repercussions from not recognizing and honoring this truth and The LORD, will never be worth it, very pleasant, nor will it ever produce any good thing! Blessings…
