SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/31- “You’re Not Encroaching, When Confidently Approaching, The Throne Of Grace!” (Hebrews 4:16)

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: 12/31- “You’re Not Encroaching, When Confidently Approaching, The Throne Of Grace!” (Hebrews 4:16)

Premise Question: What is the reason we now have personal access to the very throne room of The Almighty?

“So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most‭‭.” (Hebrews‬ ‭4:16‬ ‭NLT‬)

Armed with the wonderfully liberating knowledge, of who it is that has opened up the door, that now allows us, with courage and full confidence, to gain unfettered access into the very throne room and manifest presence of Papa God—The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, we all, members of The Company of The Redeemed, should now, therefore, fearlessly draw near to the throne of The Almighty, in order to exchange our bungled bankrupted lives for His benevolent tender mercies, and thereby, experience His unmerited gracious favor; which is the remedy, for not only our greatest need, but all our needs, and is given to us, in a timely manner, on time, every time and for all time. (Hebrews 4:16 PDCP)

Bottom Line: It’s all because of what our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ, The Son of The Most High, who is The Savior of humankind, accomplished for us, upon the cross, in the grave, and then, over death and in the great unknown and beyond; that we now have been granted personal access to bravely and confidently approach the very throne of grace, mercy and unfailing love of Papa God—The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, to receive the appropriate aid and help, at the right time, every time, in our time of need.

So, you’re not encroaching, when confidently approaching, Papa God’s throne of grace! Therefore, be thankful for this past year and hopeful for the new year upon us! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/30- “We are Papa God’s Incredible Handiwork—His Masterpiece!” (Ephesians 2:10)

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: 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)

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: 12/29- “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- 12/28- “There’s No Reason To Fear, Our Victory’s Already Here—A Done Deal!” (Isaiah 41:10)

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: 12/28- “There’s No Reason To Fear, Our Victory’s Already Here—A Done Deal!” (Isaiah 41:10)

Premise Question: What have we, The Company of The Redeemed, who are the greatly beloved and cherished children of The Most High, to be afraid of or discouraged about?

“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” (‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭41:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

So, because I Am, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, has already personally selected you to be my cherished choice servants, do not ever be frightened of anything or anyone, for there is nothing to be afraid of, as I Am, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, shall always be with you and shall never abandon, leave or forsake you. Therefore, don’t ever allow the things that are happening around you to dissuade, distress, discourage, dismay or terrorize you, for I Am, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, am your Protector and Everlasting Redeemer. I Am, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, will make you strong, with the power of My might; which shall be there, as an ever present help and strong support during difficult and troubling times. I Am, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, have taken a firm hold on you with My righteous right hand and shall never grow weary and then let go or release you from My, already assured, victorious strong , everlasting grip. (Isaiah 41:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: There’s really no need to ever be afraid of anything or anyone in this world. Even though we will definitely encounter trouble, trial, tribulation, tumult, pain, suffering, hurt, disappointment, distressing hardships, as well as difficult and troubling times, during our brief time and spiritual sojourn here on this earth, there is still not ever a reason to lose hope, but there is always a reason to remember and not ever forget this: He, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty has overcome it all, on our behalf, and will always be there with us, to comfort, to help, to encourage, to protect, to strengthen and support us, by empowering us to also be overcomers.

It is because of His great promise, that He will never abandon, leave or forsake us, that our victory is already assured, no reason to fear, or to ever be discouraged, as our victory is already achieved and is here—a done deal! 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- 12/26- “Let The Jubilant And Rapturous Celebration Of Great Rejoicing Ensue!” (Luke 2:20)

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: 12/26- “Let The Jubilant And Rapturous Celebration Of Great Rejoicing Ensue!” (Luke 2:20)

Premise Question: What is it time to say and do and who do we tell?

“The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. It was just as the angel had told them.”
(‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:20‬ ‭NLT‬)

The shepherds, being completely overwhelmed with rapturous joy and excitement, after not only hearing, with their own ears, the wonderful Good News, but then, having what they had just heard actually confirmed, with the incredible experience of seeing it, with their own eyes, exactly, as it had been described to them, by the angel of The LORD, even down to the smallest detail; all of this was much more than they could ever try to contain within themselves, so, upon the return to their sheep, everyone they saw along the way, they weren’t able to be reserved or hold back from glorifying and praising The LORD GOD Almighty and telling them all about the magnificently wondrous, miraculous miracle of glad tidings of great joy, the Good News for all of humankind, that they had just personally witnessed. (Luke 2:20 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Have you ever been too excited to sleep or eat or unable to sit or stand still for even a moment, because of the overwhelming anticipation and expectation of joy building up inside you and that you are experiencing due to having some insight and incredible knowledge of something really good that’s either about to happen or has already happened? What you know and what you are feeling is too wonderful to keep to yourself! You can’t hold or contain it within yourself! You’ve just got to tell someone, call someone, see someone, show someone, anyone or everyone about the Good News of what has happened or is about to happen! It may even have an affect on you of causing you to break out in dance, burst out laughing or to begin to sing uncontrollably, with rapturous joy, for you just can’t keep it inside yourself, as you are unable to contain or control it, you just can’t help it! Nothing is going to stop, delay or hinder you from immediately beginning to tell somebody, probably everybody you come in contact with or have opportunity to tell!

Perhaps, that’s what was going on with the shepherds, with regards to the news they had just received, seen and heard.

We too, have experienced and been given the same Good News! So, let us, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, do the same as the shepherds were compelled and overwhelmed with joy to do!

It’s time to let the jubilant and rapturous celebration of great rejoicing ensue and to “start spreading the news,” by beginning to tell everyone everywhere about The Good News of great joy and perfect peace for all of humankind! Blessings…

TIS THE SEASON OF GIVING AND RELEASING!

Posted on

TIS THE SEASON OF GIVING AND RELEASING!

“It’s more blessed to give than receive.” -Jesus Christ, The Lord…

“it’s a blessing for the one who is released, but, also a bigger blessing for the one who releases.” -I’ve said this, as well as others…

“It’s more blessed to be righteous than right.” -Garry Meineke…

You might win the battle of being right, but you won’t necessarily win the war—you might end of dead right! For when you demand “your right of way,” you may very well end up “dead right away!”

The more prudent way, is to give up your right, after all, it’s more blessed to give than receive…Jesus really did say that and He really did mean to say it!

Some might say, “but, I’ve been wronged!” You may very well be right, but it doesn’t have any power or influence to make you better. Only releasing the wrong will make it right and cause you to get better!

If you choose not to do it Papa God’s way, by releasing the wrong, then you won’t get better, you’ll just become bitter and have a set of bigger problems to eventually deal with, that in order to get relief, you’ll have to release to get better! There is no other way around it to get better.

Papa God’s Word tells us that revenge is His to repay, not ours!

Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. (Romans 12:19-21 NIV)

His way is the only way that works. Our way will always be ineffective and will not ever produce the desired result!

We should also not have the attitude, because we know The LORD will avenge us, “okay LORD, go get em and get em real good!”

Nor should we allow our pride or bitterness to rule our lives, but choose to clothe ourselves in humility. Pride and bitterness leads us to utter and total humiliation, while humility and releasing leads us to being exalted in due time!

Look after each other, so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God! Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many. (Hebrews 12:15 NLT)

Tis the season for giving and releasing! Ah ha, perhaps the greatest gift you can give someone this year, is the gift of releasing them. Then, you too will receive an even greater gift of being released, no longer held captive, but set free, with liberty, peace and joy!

Happy giving and releasing season to all! 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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/17- “I’m All In—With My Whole Heart!” (Psalms 119:10)

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: 12/17- “I’m All In—With My Whole Heart!” (Psalms 119:10)

Premise Question: What place, position, preeminence and precedence should seeking, serving and worshipping The LORD, have, be and take in our lives?

“I have tried hard to find you— don’t let me wander from your commands.”
(‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

I, therefore, completely surrender my entire being, not holding anything back or in reserve, but with a deliberate diligence, abandon myself wholeheartedly, to serving and worshiping You alone, The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty. So, my dear LORD GOD Almighty, I urgently and with a sincere heart, humbly request that You help me, by keeping me from ever deviating, stumbling or leaving Your righteous path, that You, O LORD, have clearly marked and paved, with Your life-giving, sustaining and preserving, commandments for my life. (Psalm 119:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Seeking, serving and worshiping The LORD should never be relegated to something we just poke or pick at, or just have in our lives as an enjoyable hobby, or as an activity that we use as a way to socialize or accommodate some business venture.

We should and must abandon ourselves completely to Him—His righteous way, His perfect will and His divine purpose for our lives!

You’ve heard it said before…”Either The LORD is LORD of all or He’s not LORD at all!” Let’s all choose to give The LORD His rightful place, position, preeminence and precedence, by making Him The LORD of all! Blessings…
