SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/25/15- “Humility Elicits Papa God’s Gracious Favor And Power Every Time!” (James 4:6-7)
Premise Question: When do we, as believers, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, actually have the full power, authority and backing from Papa God, to tell the enemy of our soul, the devil and all his minions, to get lost; and at what point does our enemy have to comply?
And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (James 4:6-7 NLT)
And, as Papa God’s Holy Writ clearly delineates, His gracious favor will never run out, come up short or in anywise ever be found deficient, but will always be more than enough, being completely sufficient on every occasion and in any situation or circumstance. Although Papa God will always be ever ready and willing to grant the full measure of His grace and favor towards those who remain humble, He will also, always be hostile towards, with great resistance, those who persist in being insolent and full of pride. So then, yield yourself, in humble submission, under the power and authority of Papa God Almighty, making this your first and foremost priority in your daily spiritual walk and life. For when you permanently revoke the license of the enemy of your soul, the devil, to no longer have the ability to gain access, in order to operate and create havoc in your life, by you always humbly submitting and yielding yourself to Papa God Almighty, you’ve not merely just temporarily suspended the license of your enemy, the devil, to operate in your life by just resisting, but have now, by striving and standing against him, with the help of The Almighty, he, the devil, shall and must take flight in fright, swiftly, without delay, moving far far away from you. (James 4:6, 7 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The key to effectively resisting the devil and all of his devices, schemes and evil minions, and then to have him cease and desist his actions taken against us, so that he then takes flight and leaves us alone; is to first, rid yourself of any and all insolence, arrogance and pride, by coming before The presence of The LORD in total humility, respectfully and humbly, submitting ourselves before The Almighty, Papa God, in reverential awe. We can resist the devil until we’re blue in the face or until the cows come home! But, it will all be for naught and will have no effect, unless and until we do first things first, which is to humbly submit ourselves to The Almighty, Papa God. The devil and his minions do not have to listen to us one iota, as long as he is still being given access to our life because of our illicit, wayward and disobedient ways. For until and unless we choose to humble ourselves in obedient submission, by coming into agreement and full compliance with His Holy Writ, we still haven’t revoked his license to operate in our lives! We all need to stop granting the devil and his minions access to our lives, and immediately choose to humbly submit ourselves to Papa God, so that our resisting will not be in vain, and our enemy, the devil, must then, get lost forever! Remember, when we humble ourselves and submit to Papa God, that’s when we have all power and authority to resist the devil, and it is at that point, that the devil must comply, by taking flight and fleeing!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/03/15- “Always Remember To Take The Time!” (Hebrews 13:16)
Premise Question: Do we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, honor and fulfill our sacred duty, by always remembering and never neglecting, to take the time to be kind and good toward others, as well as, by sharing the love of Jesus with them and by remembering to give generously to those who are experiencing difficult and challenging times, and are therefore, in desperate straights, without the sufficient help that’s required to meet their needs, as they anxiously await to receive some relief?
And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. (Hebrews 13:16 NLT)
No matter how busy, hectic or trying life may get, we, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, should always remember and never neglect, to take the time to show kindness, with great generosity, towards others; sharing our life and substance with them freely, for these are the expressions of giving, with which, Papa God is most pleased! (Hebrews 13:16 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Do we ever get so caught up in our own lives, in the vicissitudes of life, with the varying ebbs and flow, that we either fail to remember or just outright neglect to honor and fulfill the sacred trust and duty given to us, by The LORD, to be genuinely kind and good towards others, to share Jesus with them and to make sure we offer our help and substance during their time of need? Or, do we make excuses, justifications or rationalizations for why we are not fulfilling our clearly delineated sacred trust and duty to others? Perhaps we’ve been wont to utilize some of these old and customary responses: “I just don’t feel lead!” “It’s not my calling or ministry!” “I don’t have that gift!” “I’m not qualified!” “I don’t have the resources!” “I’m fearful and frightened to do it!” “I’m unaware and don’t know anyone with those needs!” “I don’t live in that area!” “Let someone else do it!” “Isn’t someone else already doing it?” “I wouldn’t want to step on anyone’s toes!” “I don’t have anything to offer!” “Out of sight, out of mind!” So many excuses, justifications and rationalizations, these are just, but a smattering few. Everyone who is a member of The Company of The Redeemed has been called to fulfill and satisfy this sacred trust and duty, in some way or manner and in some degree! Something I’ve heard a very wise woman of Papa God say on numerous occasions, my wife, who heard some other wise woman of Papa God say is: “Stop making excuses and start making arrangements!” I’m not going to list all the different ways and opportunities that we are given, continually, to do good to others and to share Jesus with them and also to meet their needs, but, I will say this: Always remember, don’t ever forget or neglect, to be a veritable, satisfying blessing of refreshing to others, and in so doing, you will be pleasing to your Papa God! Blessing…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/22/15- “Put It To The Test And Verify!” (1 John 4:1)
Premise Question: Can and should the assertions and declarations of those who purport to be speaking and ministering by the power and authority of The Holy Spirit, be tested and verified, that they are in fact, from Papa God?
Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world. (1 John 4:1 NLT)
My most beloved fellow believers, all, members of The Company of The Redeemed, don’t fall for just anyone who may be a persuasive orator, full of charisma and merely purports, by assertion and declaration, to be speaking and ministering under and by the authority and power of The Holy Spirit. Always be very discerning, prudent and wise, by making sure you test, evaluate and verify, that they are in fact, authentic and come from Papa God. For, unfortunately, there are a myriad of fraudulent, good sounding and great looking individuals, in the world, who claim to speak by divine inspiration, but don’t, on behalf of Papa God! (1 John 4:1 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Yes we can and should test and verify anyone and everyone who claims they are form Papa God, operating under and in the authority and power of The Holy Spirit, for in fact, they may be operating and ministering out of a spirit, but not The Holy Spirit and most likely are depending upon their own persona, personality and personal charisma to do the work and ministry they are involved in and for their own glory and benefit. LORD help us all to not be fooled and to always be discerning, prudent and wise and prove what is good right and Holy and from Papa God! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/20/15- “So, You Say You Want To Be Happy!”
Premise Question: What can you do, that will, as a direct result, cause you to experience true authentic joy and happiness, each and every day of your life, no matter what you may presently be facing and enduring or at any future time in your life, what you may have to go through?
Joyful are those who obey his laws and search for him with all their hearts. (Psalms 119:2 NLT)
The direct result, of coming into agreement and compliance with Papa God’s Holy Laws, of loving and pursuing Him, as a life long “Holy Quest,” with your whole heart, soul, mind and body, and, by loving others as yourself, will produce an effervescence of rapturous, jubilant and gratifying joy, in your innermost being, the very essence of who you are. (Psalm 119:2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: There’s really only one answer to the Premise Question: Love Papa God and love people, everywhere! The follow up evidence, that one is actually doing this, is found in the next verse of Psalm 119, verse 3: They do not compromise with evil, and they walk only in his paths. (Psalms 119:3 NLT)
Let’s do this, people of Papa God and servants of The Most High LORD, everywhere! What have we got to lose? What we have to gain, is true, authentic real joy and a life filled with happiness and the joy of The LORD! Blessings…
