SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/09/15- “Papa God’s Divine Purpose And Plan Is Revealed!” (2 Timothy 1:9)

Premise Question: Accepting the fact that Papa God sees the end all the way back to even before the beginning of time, and that He, The Supreme Creator of everything, including time, as He is outside of time looking in on His unique creation, humankind; who by the way, He says that he knew intimately, each and every one of them, even before any of them were born into this world; just what kind of attitude, response and expressions should each individual, who has fully experienced Papa God’s wonderful and most undeserved gracious favor, in their individual lives, through having a personal relationship with His Son Jesus Christ, unashamedly and without fear, exhibit towards Papa God?

“For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time—to show us his grace through Christ Jesus.” (‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭1:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Before time ever began,
The Almighty’s grace was to be sown,
For Papa God had already put into place His divine purpose and plan,
Of saving and raising up His own,
The Company of The Redeemed,
Who are called to a life of holy living,
Through His Son Jesus Christ, who is most highly esteemed,
On display, His grace that never stops giving,
Not for work that we have done,
For what was done for us is undeserved,
Our ultimate victory He The LORD has won,
So that for all eternity we are forever preserved. (2 Timothy 1:9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Here is my attitude, response and expressions, O LORD: My attitude and demeanor towards You, is genuinely sincere and august, but with a rejoicing spirit and positive outlook, for my devotion is to You and only You, O LORD, with my whole heart, I have an attitude of gratitude, my disposition and posture is one of being filled with hopeful expectations and heartfelt thanksgiving. My response to You O LORD is; everything that is within me, holding nothing back in reserve, but with my whole heart, my mind and body, including my lips, my voice, my hands, arms, feet, my talents, abilities and gifts and all my strength, I humbly bow before You, as Your beloved and greatly blessed servant, and I acknowledge You as The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, The Redeemer and Savior of humankind, of which I am one, who having personally surrendered to You and Your unfailing love, am now, therefore, experiencing Your marvelous grace, matchless mercy and fabulous favor, in full measure, because my whole life is now Yours. My expressions are daily expressions of reverence, praise and honor, acts of devotion and divine acts of spiritual worship, with huge declarations and proclamations, announcing to the world and everyone in the whole earth, with words, acts, deeds and behaviors, that will clearly tell the whole world of Your glorious grace and mighty acts! This is where I start, and what I do. I encourage each of you that happens to read this, to consider doing likewise, for it shall bring you great and wonderful benefits. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/08/15- “Make Sure You Are Ready And Equipped!” (1 Peter 3:14b-15)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/08/15- “Make Sure You Are Ready And Equipped!” (1 Peter 3:14b-15)

Premise Question: Why is it so vitally important, with tremendous significance attached to it, that we, each and every member of The Company of The Redeemed, live our lives before others, without worry or fear, and that we are always, at the ready, equipped and fully prepared, to give a quick and cogent response to anyone who may ask us why we are so joyful and why we have such a hopeful outlook on life, now and even into the distant future?

“So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats. Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it.” (‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭3:14b-15‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Do not allow the threats being directed towards you, by your enemy, to foment worry and fear to the point of being frightened into a state of paralysis of thought and inactivity. Rather though, continue to trust The LORD for your safety, while acknowledging, with a Holy reverent worship, at the very core and the inmost part of your being, Jesus Christ, as LORD and Savior. On every occasion and circumstance, without exception, make sure you are ready, being properly prepared and thoroughly equipped, to deliver, in a cogent manner, a quick and simple, appropriate response and answer, to anyone, anywhere, anytime, all the time, to absolutely everyone, who may request of you a basis and justification for why you are so obviously filled with joy and such an expectant hope, for not only the here and now, but into the future, as well. Be very careful though, showing extreme consideration, remembering to be polite, gentle and kind, always showing the greatest amount of esteem, honor and respect towards them, while engaging and interacting with them. (1 Peter 3:14b-15 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The LORD has given us clear and concise instructions, commands, exhortations and encouragements, in His Word, to not be fearful, fretful, afraid, troubled, moved by threats, no matter the threat level, but to always stand firm, not wavering, upon our faith and trust that we’ve placed and fully surrendered to The LORD. And, that we are to not ever allow anything to dissuade, dismay or discourage us from doing the work of spreading the Good News, among and with those that we’re given the divine opportunity to do so; being ever ready, prepared and rehearsed, fully equipped, to share our own personal story, in a simple, quick, clear and concise, cogent way. We, as believers, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, should make it our priority to be able to answer cogently and explain quickly and simply, to anyone who may ask us why we are the way we are; which should absolutely be, full of joy, hope, compassion, generosity, patience, encouragement and refreshing to be around! Others should see us openly, unashamedly and unabashedly worshiping The LORD in every area and part of our lives; honoring Him above everything and all others. We should each, therefore, develop and hone our own convincing and believable personal story, (no embellishment needed or necessary, just the wonderful truth) of how we came to know and accept The LORD Jesus Christ into our lives; sharing who we were before we knew Him, explaining how, when and why we accepted Him as LORD and Savior and then, telling them, with enthusiasm, what has happened and transpired in our lives since we first believed and then, as a direct result, began to grow and flourish, maturing in our relationship with The LORD. Make sure you are ready, prepared and equipped, with the Good News and your own personal story, to give everyone, the reason why you are so hopeful and full of joy! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP-08/03/15- “It Is Papa God Who Restores Us, Supports Us And Makes Us Strong!” (1 Peter 5:10)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/03/15- “It Is Papa God Who Restores Us, Supports Us And Makes Us Strong!” (1 Peter 5:10)

Premise Question: What does Papa God restore, support and strengthen in those who’ve become members of The Company of The Redeemed?

“In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation.” (‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:10‬ ‭NLT)

And The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, our most merciful and gracious Papa God, showing His unmerited favor toward us, has summoned you out of darkness, enabling you to keep your divine appointment with His perpetually transforming glorious light, to forever, without end, be in the very presence of Jesus Christ, The LORD of all. This though, after a brief period of enduring and being subjected to pain, distress, trial, trouble and suffering in this life; for The Sovereign LORD God Almighty Himself is resolved to show up on your behalf, to personally deliver and perfect you, by refreshing your spirit, renewing your mind, regenerating and restoring your body, causing you to function at full strength, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, as well as, physically; becoming a sure and sturdy stalwart, staying rock solid, secure, ever ready and steady, resolute in your faith and purpose, being fully and firmly established in your Holy High Calling. (1 Peter 5:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Papa God is beyond good and gracious, lavishly pouring out His unfailing love upon humankind, by being most merciful and kind towards His very own, all those who through Jesus Christ, His Son, have become greatly beloved members of The Company of The Redeemed; and thus, have answered the clarion call Papa God has sent forth into the earth, inviting all those of humankind who will come, to share in His eternally divine nature and His magnificently splendid glory. Papa God doesn’t want us to be unaware of, though, nor does He want us to be surprised or shaken by, the fact that we will experience suffering, in this life; some perhaps more than others, but that we are not to succumb to becoming discouraged, disheartened or dismayed, for He has overcome all of it, and shall therefore, most assuredly, carry us through it, come what may, during it. And then, after the suffering, He has promised to restore and renew a right spirit in us, restoring our inheritance and good fortune. He will also support and sustain us in our soul purpose and cause, holding us up and bringing His great comfort to undergird us. But that’s not all! He has also promised to strengthen our body, by building us up in our most holy faith, making us strong, with His supplements, nourishment and reinforcements. Finally, Papa God has set our feet upon a sure and strong foundation, to confidently stand, being sure footed, upon The Solid Rock, Jesus Christ, The Cornerstone of our entire faith and belief system, as He is the only Truth, The only Light, that shines in the darkness, that illuminates The only Path that leads to The only Way back to His Father, our Papa God, in order to experience and share in His eternal and magnificently splendid glory. The glory and splendor of The One True God, Jesus Christ, The Sovereign LORD God Almighty! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/02/15- “We Will Not Remain Unchanged!” (2 Corinthians 3:18)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/02/15- “We Will Not Remain Unchanged!” (2 Corinthians 3:18)

Premise Question: How are we transformed and changed into the very image of The LORD, and what is our part, in the overall process?

“So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.” (‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭3:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

And we, the whole number of The Company of The Redeemed, no longer having faces that are hidden behind a veil, but are now uncovered and bare, should then now consider, with great thought and deliberation, the magnificent reflection on display, of The LORD’S Glory, which is presently transforming us completely, changing our appearance, our nature and our character into His Image, empowering and enabling the miraculous process of gradually becoming more and more like Him, with an ever-increasing, glory releasing, freedom experiencing, life; which comes from The LORD and Savior of all, Jesus Christ—who is The Way, The Truth and The Spirit—that releases and sets us, all of humankind, free. (2 Corinthians 3:18 PDCP)

Bottom Line: It is only through the power and presence of The LORD’S Spirit, being allowed to operate and function, during the ongoing, moment by moment, daily work, that only The Spirit can do and accomplish, in the process of the complete and glorious transformation that takes place in the life of each and every individual believer, who is a blood bought, sin removed, made new, member of The Company of The Redeemed! Our part is to allow the miraculous transformation to take place, by first deliberately yielding our will, our desires and our lives to The LORD, through placing our hope, trust and faith in The LORD, through sincere confession, real repentance and a moment by moment, daily entering into His presence, seeking His face and living our lives for Him, desiring to do His will and fulfill His purpose for our lives; to always honor His Name, and with diligence, to earnestly live a life that will be pleasing to Him; one that will always bring The LORD glory, honor and praise; as we should always choose to walk in His love and release towards others, for the only thing that really matters is our transforming faith expressing itself in humility and love. We shall not remain unchanged, but shall be transformed into The LORD’S glorious image! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/27/15- “Unbelievable, Incomprehensible, Inconceivable, Inmitable!” (1 Corinthians 2:9)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/27/15- “Unbelievable, Incomprehensible, Inconceivable, Inimitable!” (1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT)

Premise Question: Are we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, truly looking forward to the day when the unbelievable becomes the believable, the incomprehensible is finally understood and comprehended, the inconceivable and the unthinkable becomes the conceivable and thinkable and finally the absolutely inimitable is clearly seen and personally experienced by each and every member of The Company of The Redeemed?

“That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” (‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Nevertheless, just as it’s been written down in Papa God’s Holy Scriptures, and therefore, has been forever established: “it is beyond unbelievable, quite improbable and extraordinarily remarkable what human eyes will one day see, as well as, incomprehensible, literally impossible to understand now, at this time, what human ears will hear on that day, and, it is completely inconceivable, far out of reach, for any human mind to imagine, the inimitable things that Papa God has in store for those who show their love for Him,” by honoring and obeying His Word, and loving their neighbors, as themselves.
(1 Corinthians 2:9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: What we, every individual member of The Company of The Redeemed, shall see one day with our own eyes, which at this present time has not yet been revealed or seen by those who are still alive and well here in this world; is beyond all improbability, and is going to absolutely astonish, amaze and stagger us, as the unbelievable, the impossible to ever believe transforms and becomes the possible and the believable right before our very eyes! Our ears also shall be transformed, as we will no longer be baffled or limited, when we hear something that seems to be fathomless and beyond our comprehension of ever knowing or fully understanding that which is now, the incomprehensible; for we will have ears that will hear, know and comprehend perfectly. And our minds, which are incredible, but at this present time doesn’t have the wherewithal to even begin to imagine, what for us is, the unimaginable, as it is completely inconceivable and too wonderful, glorious and extraordinarily beautiful for us to even to think of or consider, shall also be transformed and completely renewed. But, the day is coming, and perhaps sooner than we think, when we all, every member of The Company of The Redeemed, shall stand before Papa God and His Son Jesus Christ, and see, in person, what once was and still is, the inimitable, all that has been and presently is being prepared for all those who love, honor and obey Him and His Son; which is far beyond ever being matched, surpassed or imitated, as it shall be supremely unequalled, unparalleled and magnificently glorious to behold and forever experience. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/26/15- “The Great I Am Is Always There!” (Isaiah 41:10)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/26/15- “The Great I Am Is Always There!” (Isaiah 41:10)

Premise Question: Knowing and fully accepting the premise that Papa God is completely for us, who are members in right standing, of The Company of The Redeemed, and that He is always on our side fighting all of our battles, who is it that could ever really be successful in coming or going against us, His precious and dearly beloved own children?

“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, do not, under any circumstance you face, or situation you are going through, allow yourself to be overwhelmed, with distressing, worrisome, anxious thoughts, for I AM, The Great I AM, The Sovereign One True Almighty Papa God, Creator of Heaven and earth, will always be right there with you, close by your side. Do not, at any time or upon any occasion, give yourself over to being disheartened, lacking courage, wanting to just give up, but stay bold and courageous, for I AM, is your Papa God. I AM, will never leave you in a weakened state, without help, hope or provision, for I AM, will strengthen you, making you strong enough to face whatever is challenging you in the moment, I AM, will always help you. I AM, shall forever support and defend you against any and all opposition; keeping you from sinking into the depths of despair and eternal death. I AM, will accomplish this, with My incomparable, strong and victorious, filled with all honor and might, Glorious Righteous Right Hand. (Isaiah 41:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: If Papa God is for us, who or what can be against us? Nothing and no one! No one and nothing will ever be successful in keeping Papa God’s will and purpose for our lives from coming to fruition. Therefore, there is never going to be a valid time or reason why we should ever be fearful, frightened, distraught, timid or afraid! Papa God has promised that He will never leave or forsake us! Whatever He says He will do, He most definitely will do, because He is ever faithful, and when He does it, He will do it thoroughly, completely and that, with excellence, honor and glory. When The LORD tells us to not even allow our hearts to ever be troubled or to be dismayed, we can take Him at His Word! When He tells us that in this life, this world, we are going to experience trouble, trials, temptations, attacks, ridicule, suffering, persecution, but, we are to be full of joy and cheer, and to not be discouraged because of any of it, as He has overcome this world and everything that could ever happen to us in this life, we are to rejoice and be glad, for He has promised to give us His strength, His peace, and His comfort, encouragement, refreshing, restoration and renewal! Our’s is the victory forever and always, because The Most High, Papa God, The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, is our LORD and Savior, The Great I Am, who is always there for us! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/21/15- “For Papa God So Loved—NOT, For Papa God Was Really Upset!” (1 John 4:18)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/21/15- ” For Papa God So Loved—NOT, For Papa God Was Really Upset!” (1 John 4:18)

Premise Question: What force compels, motivates and then sustains, those who respond to Papa God’s message of love, grace and mercy; is it Papa God’s perfect love, or fear of His just judgement, wrath and punishment?

“Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love.” (1 John‬ ‭4:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

When we fully experience Papa God’s love, there’s not even a residue of fear left in us. No feelings of inadequacy, or being afraid of not measuring up to, or deserving His great love; because Papa God’s love is without defect or flaws, beyond any improvement, perfect in every way, and is exactly what is needed to expel, by an overwhelming force, all of our fears. Fear will never be able to accomplish Papa God’s divine purpose and will in our lives! Because being afraid of Papa God, His wrath, punishment and judgement, is not and shall not ever be what’s going to keep us holy, righteous, and pure! For those who are motivated merely by being fearful of Papa God’s wrath, will never be sustained by, nor will they ever be made whole and complete, flawless, faultless, and correct, in every detail in their life; for we are only ever made perfect, whole and complete, in His love, not in His wrath! (1 John 4:18 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Being fearful of the outpouring of Papa God’s judgements, His just wrath and punishment, is never going to be a sustainable, proper motivator or efficacious compeller, to keep one upon the straight and narrow path that leads to righteousness and an eternal life of abundant joy and comforting peace! For a fear of death, hell and eternal punishment is not what saves, spares and sustains us! It always was, always is and shall ever be, only Papa God’s lavish and perfect love being poured out upon our lives, that saves, spares and completely sustains us, in this life and throughout all of eternity. Papa God was not upset with us when He graciously chose to send His One and Only Son to this world, for the express purpose of redeeming all of humankind, by not sparing His Son, who freely laid down His life, as a ransom for our lives, in order to save us, spare us and then sustain us, not only during our time here on earth, but throughout all of eternity; but He was showing us how much He loved us, with His genuinely true and authenticated, everlasting perfect love! The only good thing that can truly come out of a fear of Papa God’s wrath and punishment being poured out upon humankind, should be utilized as an urgent call and compelling motivator for each and every member of The Company of The Redeemed, to see it, accept it, be aware of it, know it and then, do something about it, by diligently acting upon it, with complete devotion; to faithfully share the message of hope, which is Papa God’s Good News message of love, grace and mercy, with all those who will choose to accept and personally experience it. Because if they don’t choose to respond and accept His perfect love, grace and mercy, then certain judgement of His wrath and punishment shall follow. Everyone should grow fully into an awareness and understanding of Papa God’s love, as Papa God wasn’t really upset with us, when He sent His Son, but was absolutely motivated and compelled by His love for us and all of humankind. So, we too, ought to be motivated by His lavish and great love; for the empirical evidence that shows that one has fully experienced Papa God’s perfect love, is when they are no longer motivated by being full of fear, but are motivated by being full of His perfect love, as all fear has been expelled and replaced, by Papa God’s perfect love! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/16/15- “Beyond Our Comprehension!” (Romans 11:33)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/16/15- “Beyond Our Comprehension!” (Romans 11:33)

Premise Question: Why is it that humankind has such a difficult time being able to grasp, with full comprehension, the vast incalculable riches of the immeasurable, and unfathomable, wealth of wisdom, knowledge and perfect judgements of Papa God?

“Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!”
(‭‭Romans‬ ‭11:33‬ ‭NIV‬‬)

Oh the profundity, the complexity and vastness of the greatness of Papa God’s immeasurable abundance of His invaluable wisdom and marvelous knowledge—far beyond our ability to comprehend! For His method of making superbly perfect and great decisions cannot be understood or comprehended by searching them out even with great diligence, for they are completely unfathomable, and His course of action, of creating access to Him, is superior and undiscoverable, way beyond any knowledge or experience we may have had or ever shall have! (Romans 11:33 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We are not the first of humankind to struggle with being able to understand, with full comprehension, the immeasurable and unfathomable vastness of Papa God’s goodness, His love, mercy, grace, wisdom, knowledge and perfect judgements. In the Old Testament, Job was having great difficulty, as he was struggling and going through some unique and troublesome challenges in his life, so, in chapter 37 of Job, he decides to challenge Papa God’s wisdom; in the way Papa God chooses to do things and allows things to happen. What follows, in chapter 38 through to the end of Job, is Papa God’s response to Job’s thoughts and questions. He begins to pelt Job with a flurry of questions that Job is unable to answer. One of my favorites is: ““Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much.” (‭‭Job‬ ‭38:4‬ ‭NLT‬‬) And then, Papa God demands that Job answer them! I absolutely love Job’s response. “Then Job replied to the LORD, “I am nothing—how could I ever find the answers? I will cover my mouth with my hand. I have said too much already. I have nothing more to say.” (‭‭Job‬ ‭40:3-5‬ ‭NLT‬‬) Good answer, but Papa God wasn’t quite finished yet! For He goes on with another flurry of unanswerable questions, further challenging Job to answer them. Here is Job’s final perspective, belief and response, which is not a bad perspective, belief and response for all of us to have, as well! ““I know that you can do anything, and no one can stop you. You asked, ‘Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorance?’ It is I—and I was talking about things I knew nothing about, things far too wonderful for me. You said, ‘Listen and I will speak! I have some questions for you, and you must answer them.’ I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance.” (‭‭Job‬ ‭42:2-6‬ ‭NLT‬‬) Here’s the truth that the Prophet Isaiah got from Papa God: “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” (‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬) And here’s the revelation of this truth that the Apostle John received, and that we ought to fully accept, trust and believe: “Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.” (‭‭1 John‬ ‭3:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬) We, as humankind, are not going to figure it all out while here on this earthly plain. But one day, as has been shown in the scriptures, we will see and fully comprehend, for it shall be made crystal clear to all those who’ve put their believing faith and trust in Papa God and His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ! PS. “I don’t know the why or the how, but I do accept that You must of had a very good reason, and therefore, one day, I know that I will understand completely.” Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/07/15- “We Suffer Now, Revel In Glory Later!” (Romans 8:18)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/07/15- “We Suffer Now, Revel In Glory Later!” (Romans 8:18)

Premise Question: Does everyone suffer in the same way during their time here on earth and do all receive the same glory and recognition in the future?

Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭18‬ NLT)

After careful thought and consideration, I firmly believe and am fully convinced, that our present existing trials and tribulation, with their intolerable conditions of excruciating pain, agonizing distress, along with the great loss and unpleasantness we are even now experiencing, cannot, should not, and in fact, is not even the slightest bit significant or important enough to justify, in any way shape or form, when comparing them side by side, with the immeasurable, incalculable, magnificently distinctive in renown, resplendent glory that will be made known and personally revealed in each one of us, The Company of The Redeemed, later on, at the appointed time. (Romans 8:18 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Not everyone will experience suffering and loss in the same way or in the same degree during their time here on earth; nor will everyone receive the same glory, rewards and distinctive recognition later on, at the appointed time, in the future. But, everyone will suffer in some way or another and at some point and in some degree during their time here on earth. The great and wonderfully encouraging news flash is though; that all those who share in the suffering of The LORD will also share in His resplendent glory, as well! For our suffering now, is nothing when compared to the glory to be revealed and received by us later on! We will surely suffer now, but we shall also certainly revel in a future glory, at a future time, where we will be clothed and regaled with the magnificence and resplendent glory of The LORD! The suffering we experience now cannot even begin to be compared, as it is not even worthy of comparison, with the glory, rewards and recognition that we’ll receive later on! The greater the suffering now, the greater the glory, recognition and reward later on! (2 Corinthians 4:16-18, Matthew 5:12) I personally came to the full acceptance and realization of this great and encouraging principle and truth during the time I watched my precious and greatly beloved wife and mother of my children, Cynthia, go through suffering that was beyond belief and too difficult to explain or understand; for it was more than I could endure and much more than I had ever seen anyone go through before or since! It was during that time and right after though, that The LORD opened the eyes of my heart and understanding, so that I could clearly see and perceive, with great insight and a deep understanding, that ultimately He was going to use it all for His glory and purpose, as well as, the tremendous gracious benefit of my beloved wife. For one day, in the future and at the appointed time, I will see with my own eyes, the glory of The LORD upon His faithful and enduring great suffering servant Cynthia, as I too will one day stand before The LORD, The One who is our loving, full of gracious favor and great mercy, our Savior, who is ever faithful to His Word and every promise therein, and shall then receive the glory, rewards and recognition that shall far outweigh and exceed any suffering I endured and experienced during my stay and sojourn here upon this earth. We will suffer now, but later on, we shall revel in His glory! Hallelujah! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/06/15- “Put First Things First!” (Matthew 6:33)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/06/15- “Put First Things First!” (Matthew 6:33)

Premise Question: What are some of the real benefits that can be had and experienced by those who will choose to put seeking and going after The Kingdom of God, while living a virtuous and upright life, above everything else in this life, and why is that?

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. (‭Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭33‬ NLT)

When we choose to live our lives, in complete abandonment, holding nothing back in reserve, by making it our first and foremost primary objective in life, to seek and to serve effectively in the kingdom work of our LORD, while also living a morally righteous, being virtuous and upright life, that brings honor and glory to Papa God and His Kingdom, then, there is never a need for us to ever worry or be concerned with our daily needs not being met, in order to live and flourish in this life. (Mathew 6:33 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Some of the most significantly important benefits and wonderful blessings that will be fully experienced by those who choose to reorder their lives to reflect a coming into full compliance with the strong admonition and exhortation of The LORD, with regards to prioritizing our lives, and putting things in their appropriate and proper places, by seeking His Kingdom first and foremost above all else, and living a morally upright and righteous life is: experiencing all of His great and precious promises, His great faithfulness, His provision of our critical and daily needs, His supreme comfort, all surpassing peace, gracious favor, undeserved mercy, overcoming power and unfailing love! Papa God enables us to build upon a strong foundation stone, Jesus Christ, The Solid Rock! We build and erect a righteous structure upon the strong foundation of The Solid Rock, with building blocks of righteous principles and truth; then, we add to the righteous structure a consistent routine, by living out Papa God’s virtuous principles in our daily lives, being lead, moment by moment, by The Spirit of The Living God, which will bring stability to our life structure and routine, so as, to not ever be tossed to and fro by everything that we may encounter in life, and thereby, become unstable, but will be successful all the days of our lives, because we deliberately and with diligence and constant devotion keep first things first in our lives! So, seek Him first. Serve Him above everything and everyone else. Live only for Him, and you’ll get what you have need of in this life and the life to come! Why is it and why does it work this way? Because when we are obedient to Papa God and His desires, purpose and will for our lives, then, and only then, are we pleasing to Him and will thus, get to experience His great and precious promises, by having all that we have need of and more. Remember, with obedience comes blessings and benefits, but with disobedience comes curses and consequences! Blessings…
