SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/26- “Pure Love Is—Pure Love Is Not!”
(1 Corinthians 13:4-5)

Premise Question: Does authentic pure love really exist, or is it just some high ideal and lofty concept, an unrealistic hope, that is far removed from anyone ever being able to actually experience it in a real and meaningful way?

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.” ‭‭(1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4-5‬ ‭NLT‬)

There is nothing in this world that is more patient, having the greatest capacity for being long-suffering, persistent, persevering, enduring hardship, pain, forbearing and forgiving, at all times, than Papa God’s pure love. There is not another love that is more propitious, obliging, considerate, indulgent, showing benevolent kindness at every turn to everyone on all occasions and in every situation and circumstance. Pure love never allows feelings of discontent, resentfulness or covetousness to turn into jealous envy; influencing love’s thoughts and behavior towards others. Pure love refuses to ever exaggerate, by boasting about itself in a braggadocios manner, nor will it ever exhibit a haughty spirit of vain pride. Pure love does not treat others with disdain or contempt, by shamefully and disgracefully dishonoring them in an inappropriate or rude way. Pure love does not pursue self-gratification, nor does it selfishly only look after its own interests to the exclusion of all others. Pure love is not cantankerous or irritable, having a “short fuse” that quickly explodes into fits of malicious anger and rage. And furthermore, pure love never, ever, without any exception, equivocation, mitigating circumstances or justification, shall ever keep track, for any reason, of a record of wrongs done. (1 Corinthians 13:4-5 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Authentic pure love really does exist! Pure authentic love is real! Pure love can and should be seen, exhibited and put on display, for all to see, everyday of our lives.

Pure love can truly be experienced personally, as a couple, a family, a group of friends, a crowd, a community, a people group and even amongst all people groups, reaching and extending throughout the entire world.

Pure love is not just some high ideal or lofty concept that we put high upon a pedestal, far beyond anyone being able to reach or attain!

Pure love is truly what we should all be aiming for and aspiring to attain personally, and to fully experience, on all levels, in every area of our life; and furthermore, as much as it is up to us, with all people everywhere.

When authentic pure love is seen, experienced and fully expressed, there’s not anything that is impossible; for all things are absolutely possible whenever and wherever pure love is present!

This particular Scripture is a wonderful and great way to evaluate and test whether or not Papa God’s authentic pure love is operating in our own lives, the lives around us and in those that are in the rest of the world.

Take the authentic pure love checkup today, right now, for it’s always going to initially begin with each of us, on an individual and personal basis, of truly experiencing Papa God’s authentic pure love. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/18- “He, The LORD, Personally Knows What We Face In Life!” (Hebrews 4:15)

Posted on Updated on

ONE DAY EARLY POST:

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: 09/18- “He, The LORD, Personally Knows What We Face In Life!” (Hebrews 4:15)

Premise Question: Just how is it possible, that our High Priest, Jesus Christ, can fully understand every one of our weaknesses, our horrible trials and testings, as well as, our most arduous struggles and difficult challenges?

“This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.” (‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭4:15‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

For we confidently profess, with full assurance, that we are enormously blessed, by knowing, as a matter of record, that our High Priest, The LORD Jesus Christ, has the unique capacity and ability of understanding all of our frailties, weaknesses and infirmities, that we may encounter in life; because He Himself personally, has vicariously experienced every one of them, all, just for us, by being tested, tried and tempted, in every manner, mode and fashion possibly known to humankind, and still, He was found to be faithful and true, for He did not succumb to the lower nature and yield to sin, for He, who was without sin, did not ever sin. (Hebrews 4:15 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The reason we, every individual member of The Company of The Redeemed, can be absolutely confident, with full assurance, that our High Priest, who is our redeeming LORD and Savior, has the exclusively unique and very important ability, to completely identify and then truly empathize with us, in all of our weaknesses, challenging trials and difficult testings, is because He, Jesus Christ Himself, was tested and certified, to be tried and true, completely authenticated, to be absolutely qualified and approved, in order to become the perfect sacrifice and substitute, to take our place, pay for our sin and become The Redeemer of all of humankind.

Because of His sinless life, as He never once yielded or succumbed to any temptation, trial or trouble that He encountered, or when He was challenged, confronted or affronted, and therefore, having never failed, faltered nor did He ever stumble in any of His ways, for He was perfect, holy and righteous, in every way, He did not ever sin!

That’s why He can totally relate, fully comprehend and understand us, no matter what we may have gone through, may be going through or may yet go through; for there is not anything that any of us can or will ever have to go through, that He, The LORD, hasn’t already experienced and overcome.

So, be encouraged today, with the knowledge and comfort, that The LORD Himself, personally knows and has gone through, anything and everything that we will face in this life! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/09- “Genuine, Authentic, Without Any Pretense—Real Love!” (Romans 12:9-10)

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: 09/09- “Genuine, Authentic, Without Any Pretense—Real Love!” (Romans 12:9-10)

Premise Question: Does it ever portend or bode well for anyone who chooses to act the “big pretender” by putting on airs, feigning authenticity and playing a game of pretense and make believe, and does it or will it ever really end well, by producing a good, right, just, honorable and holy result?

“Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them! Hate what is wrong! Hold tightly to what is good! Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.” (‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:9-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

In order for love to be characterized as being genuinely authentic—real, faithful and true, it must be free of all hypocrisy, without any pretense, falsehood or deceit. There should be an utter abhorrence, having an extreme aversion, to all that is morally wrong, detesting every evil practice; always making sure to adhere closely to actual reality, by embracing and holding on tight to all that is morally excellent, genuinely good and reliably righteous. Be strongly attached to one another, by exhibiting a loyal, affectionate and unfailing love towards each other; refusing to let go of one another. One more thing: Always choose to honor one another, with integrity, respect and, in your actions, by joyfully preferring and considering others before yourselves. (Romans 12:9-10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: When we just pretend to love someone, no matter how it looks or sounds, we are not really loving them! Our love must be sincere. And, in the same vein, it’s not enough to say we abhor, detest and despise evil, but our thoughts, actions and behaviors must prove that we hate even the appearance of evil; and therefore, shall and must refuse to participate in anywise, by grasping firmly and then holding onto all that is good, right and holy, without ever letting go of our convictions and devotion, no matter what may come our way!

Our love for each other should always be clearly reflected in the way we honorably treat, provide for and support one another. As a matter of fact, we should be more than happy to serve one another, in whatever capacity is needed, and that, with much joy and delight!

So, there should never be any pretense or faking it, in anything that we do in The Kingdom; whether it be how we approach and treat each other or in the good works of service that The LORD has ordained and purposed for us to do, in His blessed, most holy and righteous Kingdom, that He is establishing and accomplishing through us here on earth and beyond.

Let’s all choose to be genuinely authentic, without any pretense, and allow our faith to be expressed with real love towards each other and the world in which we are presently living. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/15- “The LORD Is Supreme!” (Colossians 1:17-18)

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: 08/15- “The LORD Is Supreme!” (Colossians 1:17-18)

Premise Question: Has there ever been, is there even now, and will there ever be, one that shall ever be able to supplant, suppress, succeed or supersede, The LORD’s Supremacy; and has there ever been, is there even now or will there ever be, one that He shall Himself secede His Supremacy to?

“He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So he is first in everything.”
(‭‭Colossians‬ ‭1:17-18‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

He, The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, is preeminently high above all rulers, powers, authorities and principalities, and it is He, that stabilizes, sustains and supports all things, keeping them working together in unison. And He is the Glorious Exalted Head, (the source of all life) of His unique body—The Church, which is the blood washed and purchased Company of The Redeemed. He was there in the beginning, even before all things, The anointed One, who opened and cleared a pathway, by being the first one to overcome death, hell and the grave; making it possible for all of us to come out from among the darkness and those who are spiritually bereft, (dead in their trespasses and sin) into His glorious light and receive eternal life, so that, with regards to anything and everything pertaining to any and every aspect of life, He, who is superior in power, authority and strength and paramount in importance and significance, might have, does have and will forever have, the utmost supremacy. (Colossians 1:17-18 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Absolutely Not! For there has never been, nor will there ever be, a world council, a world governing body, a world court, judge or ruler, no country, nation, king, leader, president, court or judge, no state, province, commonwealth, governor, or official anywhere or anytime, in the heavens above or the world below, that will ever have any power, rule or authority over His Supremacy, for He is The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty who rules and reigns Supreme in all and over all—literally everyone and everything. Therefore, there has never been, is not even now, nor ever will be, anyone or anything, that will ever be able to supplant, suppress, succeed, or supersede Him! Furthermore, nor will He ever decide to secede His Supremacy His glory, His honor, or His praise to another!

The LORD’S righteous rule and reign is Supreme and is forever and ever, without end! Blessings…

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

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: 07/21- ” 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!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/08- “Authentic Love—Put On Display!” (1 John 4:10)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/08- “Authentic Love—Put On Display!”
(1 John 4:10)

Premise Question: For all those who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, and who want to remain as members in good standing, what certainly ought to be our most authentic and highly appropriate response to Papa God’s display of authentic real love put on display, for all to see, for us and the rest of humankind?

This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. (‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭10‬ NLT)

Herein lies the truest example of the ultimate expression of what real authentic love is and looks like—not what our love for Papa God is or looks like, but what The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty’s love is and looks like for us, His beloved children. This authentic love was put on full display for us, The Company of The Redeemed, for all to see, when He dispatched His One and only Son, Jesus Christ, to earth, to appease, by making full amends and satisfying completely all of the righteous requirements of Papa God’s Holy and Divine Law, for our sin. He, Jesus, accomplished this, when He willingly laid down His life, as an offering, upon the cross, taking our place, as our substitute, in order to remove and take away the penalty of sin—our death sentence, by making us clean and pure, from all of our sinful transgressions, practices and behaviors. (1 John 4:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, should be absolutely aware, being fully cognizant, of what real authentic love is, because of what Papa God did for of all of us, by sending His One and only Son, Jesus Christ, as the perfect remedy and sacrifice, to be offered upon the cross, in our stead, taking our place, in order to completely remove, making us clean and pure, by taking away all of our iniquity and sinful transgressions and also nullifying the penalty of sin, but not only ours, The Redeemed, but all of humankind’s.

It is therefore, because of what The LORD has done and put on display for all to see, that we all should respond, holding nothing back, with heartfelt praise, worship, adoration and rejoicing, along with great honor, thanksgiving and gratitude, for all that He has accomplished for each and everyone of us, as well as, all of humankind.

Furthermore, our response should include one that clearly resembles and mirrors what The LORD has done for us, in that, as He willingly laid His life down for us, we also ought to love each other and should be willing to lay our lives down for each other, with that same love, being put on display, for all to see, showing everyone that our love and commitment to each other and those that are still in the world, truly emulates Papa God’s love and commitment for the world and each one of us, who are already members of The Company of The Redeemed! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/29- “Restore Our Joy!” (Psalms 51:12)

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: 06/29- “Restore Our Joy!” (Psalms 51:12)

Premise Question: Does any of Papa God’s dearly beloved children, have the capability of experiencing the fullness of His joy and His gracious gift of redeeming salvation, without initially approaching Him, with a humble and broken spirit and a heart that’s inclined towards and willing to obey Him?

Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you. (‭Psalms‬ ‭51‬:‭12‬ NLT)

Bring me, Your humble, broken and extremely grateful servant, back to the place and moment where You first shared with me the epitome and very essence of Your complete joy, in it’s highest degree and fullest measure, Your salvation, my redemption. I entreat You, Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, to bestow upon me, Your humble, broken and full of gratitude servant, a right disposition in my spirit, with a willing heart that’s determined to always honor and obey You; for only You, O Lord, can truly sustain me. (Psalm 51:12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Quick answer: Nope! For although it is Papa God, through His Son Jesus Christ, His Holy Scriptures and by the power and personal presence of The Holy Spirit’s influence, guidance and the pouring out into and upon our lives, of His comfort, peace and joy, which restores our soul, renews our spirit, refreshes our body and returns us back to The LORD, in right relationship, in order to fully experience the sweet fellowship and the full and the complete restoration of His joy and His redeeming, merciful and gracious, personal deliverance—even the salvation of our entire being, without true humility being expressed by an individual, which is a broken and contrite spirit, it is a complete and total impossibility.

For it truly is He, and only He, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, our loving and most merciful and gracious Papa God, who has the ability to renew and refresh, revitalize and restore us back to Him, as His joyful delight and His emancipated, set free to worship and adore Him, precious and beloved very own children.

We should therefore, desperately want and seek to be restored by the joy of His salvation, for we all are in dire need of it! And we can only find, acquire and get it, though, if we are inclined towards and willing to obey Him, with a humble heart that’s broken and contrite.

The LORD GOD Almighty is no respecter of persons, so if you desperately want and earnestly seek Him, and desire to do His will and to be restored with the joy of His salvation, in your life, you will only find Him, if you seek Him with all of your heart, in humility, brokenness and obedience.

Remember, The LORD says that He will never turn away from, refuse or despise, a broken spirit, a broken and contrite heart. (Psalm 51:17)

Restore our joy, O LORD! Blessings…
