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- 10/01- “Papa God’s Divine Purpose Is Preeminent!” (1 Corinthians 1:10)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/01- “Papa God’s Divine Purpose Is Preeminent!” (1 Corinthians 1:10)

Premise Question: Being that harmony, without any divisions in the church, is The LORD’s great desire for His Church—The Company of The Redeemed; why does it appear not to be so, and is not a regular practice or achievable endeavor, that is successfully happening on an ongoing basis?

“I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.”
(‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭1:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Upon the authority of The Name, which is above every name, Jesus Christ, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, I earnestly request, my dearly beloved and cherished friends, that you, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, consider my urgent plea, from your renewed spiritual side. Say yes, at every opportunity, to be at peace and in agreement with one another, as to what you say and do. Say no, to being or allowing divisive and fractious behavior, in your midst, by takings sides against each other, in matters that are neither intrinsic nor eternal. Rather, choose to follow the blessed way of harmonious unity, by being deliberate, with diligence, in coming together and being of one mind, one heart and one purpose; which is Papa God’s divine purpose for each of us, in His Glorious Church. (1 Corinthians 1:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We ought not to be so focussed, so much, upon the differences that we have with one another! Though they may be many, they’re just not that important in the overall scheme of what we are actually called to do!

There is so much more at stake than our petty debating, pushing and promoting our own different misgivings, misunderstandings, opinions, perspectives, views and beliefs, concerning how we interpret The Scriptures.

Okay, I know that when I say what I am going to say, it can and will be quickly interpreted as being my own opinion, perspective and view. But, be that as it may, I would hope that we all could come to an agreement upon two simple statements: 1) That Jesus Christ is LORD, for there is no other LORD GOD ALMIGHTY; therefore, there is no other Name, by which one can be saved! And 2) That anyone and everyone that calls upon The Name of The LORD shall be saved!

Now I know that, perhaps, for many, it may be just too simplistic of a premise to accept. But, at least prayerfully consider it, in light of the simple Good News—The Gospel, that is revealed in just one simple verse of Papa God’s Holy Writ, in The Gospel of John, 3:16! G-O-S-P-E-L…God’s Only Son Provides Eternal Life!

Once we truly come together in the same Spirit, one mind, united in thought and purpose, we will, without any doubt or division, accomplish our divine mission and call, The Great Commission! Let’s do it! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/24- “The Purpose Of Pentecost!” (Acts 1:8)

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: 05/24- “The Purpose Of Pentecost!” (Acts 1:8)

Premise Question: When does the power of The Holy Spirit come upon us, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, and for what purpose?

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭1‬:‭8‬ NLT)

“There is, very soon, coming a time, when you will receive the promised gift of The Holy Spirit being poured out upon your lives. Patiently wait for it, for it will surely come, and when He does come upon you, His very power and personal presence will empower you, like never before, with an overwhelming desire to go and tell everyone everywhere, throughout the whole earth, the Good News about Me. You will personally testify about Me—first, in Jerusalem, then all over Judea, and after that, everywhere in the whole earth; even unto those places that are difficult to reach and are extremely dangerous.” (Acts 1:8 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Before Jesus came to earth, Papa God’s Spirit was all around us. When Jesus came to earth, Papa God’s Spirit was with us—Immanuel, God is with us. When Jesus left the earth and ascended into Heaven, since then and even now, Papa God’s Spirit lives within us.

We, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, though, need a personal Pentecost to occur in each of our own lives, and not just for our own benefit, but to activate the power and presence of Papa God’s Spirit within us, for the express purpose of reaching and releasing everyone, with The Good News.

We need an outpouring, a mighty baptism of Papa God’s love into our lives, to the point, where our focus and concern is no longer upon ourselves and our own wants and desires or our own needs, but, with urgency, is also poured out upon all those in the world around us!

OUR CONCERN AND LOVE FOR THE CONDITION OF THE LOST SOULS OF HUMANKIND EVERYWHERE, SHOULD TRUMP AND FAR OUTWEIGH ANY CONCERN OR FEAR WE MAY HAVE FOR OUR OWN PHYSICAL WELL BEING, SAFTEY AND COMFORT!

If we do not have the power and the presence of The Holy Spirit operating in our lives, on a daily basis, leading, guiding and empowering us, we will have the greatest of difficulty in fulfilling the unique mission and calling that Papa God has placed upon each of our lives to accomplish, for His glory, purpose and ultimately, His divine will!

Papa God’s Word tells us, that without His empowering Spirit living in us, no other amount of might or power will be able to do what only His Spirit working in us and through us can do.

Our own personal salvation and redemption is wonderful, but once that occurs, we must now focus on being filled and empowered with the fullness of Papa God’s Spirit, in order to capture the vision and mission of Papa God; which is to go into the entire world, and be His witnesses, by sharing the Good News with everyone everywhere, as His personal messengers sent to testify of His love, mercy and grace and His desire to set humankind free from the burden of sin and the penalty of death—that’s upon everyone who has not called out upon The Name of The LORD!

The initial spread of the Gospel came as a direct result of the persecution of the Church! Whether or not we are ever persecuted in the way and manner that many of our brothers and sisters are presently experiencing in the world or how the first century church experienced persecution, we are all commanded to fulfill The Great Commission of Papa God.

Let us all pray in agreement for AMORE—A-Mighty-Outpouring-Releasing-Everyone! Let us all walk in His love and give it away! Let us all cry out to Papa God for a baptism of His love and Spirit to indwell and then pour out of our lives, as a delivering, refreshing flow of the power and presence of The LORD GOD Almighty—releasing everyone everywhere! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/07- “Before The Beginning And After The End!” (Revelation 1:8)

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: 05/07- “Before The Beginning And After The End!”
(Revelation 1:8)

Premise Question: This definitive and most powerful message, from The LORD God Almighty Himself, which He personally delivered to His beloved and faithful servant, The Apostle John, to be read to the seven churches of Asia, but now, has been conveyed to the whole Church, by The Apostle through Papa God’s Holy Writ; what does it do for our confidence and faith, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, and for what purpose was it delivered to the whole Church?

“I am the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One.” (‭Revelation‬ ‭1‬:‭8‬ NLT)

“I am The Great I Am, Jesus Christ, who was there at the First, even before there was an ‘in the beginning,’ for there was nothing before Me! I am The Great I Am, Jesus Christ, who will be there at the Last, for there is absolutely nothing that will outlast or come after Me,” says The LORD Jesus Christ. “I am He, who is The LORD GOD Almighty—The One True Sovereign LORD and GOD who is the preeminent, indisputable Supreme Creator and Ruler of the universe, and, who is The Great I Am, that is presently still here, as well as, the The Great I Am, who has always existed in the ancient past, and The Great I Am, who is even now existing in the distant future, and is ready and waiting, patiently, for Papa God’s command to return to earth again, as The Almighty One, The Most High, Omnipotent Sovereign Ruler over everything and everyone—The Great I Am!” (Revelation 1:8 PDCP)

Bottom Line: This message clearly supports the already established truth and words of The LORD. (John 1:1, 1 Corinthians 8:6)

What this message should do for us, though, is increase our faith, strengthen our confidence, with the desired result of being fully assured, without any doubts or decrease, in our strong belief and relying trust, in The LORD! For now, we have all the assurance that we’ll ever need or require, so that we can, with great joy and courage, wait expectantly and patiently for His sure and certain return!

And for what purpose has this definitive message been delivered to the whole church? To share it, with a great sense of urgency, with everyone; so that, no one will be in the dark or unaware of what is to come, which is the sure and certain return of The LORD, and therefore, can then act and be prepared, accordingly!

He, The LORD Jesus Christ, was there before the beginning and He’ll be there long after the end of all things. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 03/08- “There Is No Other Name!” (Zechariah 14:9)

Posted on Updated 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: 03/08- “There Is No Other Name!” (Zechariah 14:9)

Premise Question: Are we the generation and people who will see this specific “Day,” referred to by the prophet of The LORD, in this portion of Papa God’s Holy Writ, come to pass?

And the LORD will be king over all the earth. On that day there will be one LORD —his name alone will be worshiped. (‭Zechariah‬ ‭14‬:‭9‬ NLT)

On that day, when The KING of Kings and The LORD of Lord’s, steps out of Heaven, for a second time, and places His feet upon the Mount of Olives, He is coming to rule and reign upon the whole earth, to reside and dwell in the midst of humankind; for in that particular and quite spectacular and glorious day, there will be only One LORD, in Heaven and on the entire earth, that will be exalted above all else; His Name alone, for there is no other name, will be honored, worshiped, praised and glorified. (Zechariah 14:9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: In answer to the Premise Question: I don’t know, and neither does anyone else! (“However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.) (‭Matthew‬ ‭24‬:‭36‬ NLT) So, whether or not we are the generation and people that will see it happen, it matters not! For it’s going to definitely happen! And, if we are His, when it happens we will be there one way or the other. Either here on earth, seeing it take place, or returning with Him from our eternal place of abiding in His everlasting presence of eternal joy and peace—Heaven! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/27/15- “Go—Stay—Wait!” (Matthew 28:19)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/27/15- “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- 10/10/15- “Fix Your Resolute Gaze And Focus Upon The LORD!” (Psalms 16:8)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/10/15- “Fix Your Resolute Gaze And Focus Upon The LORD!” (Psalms 16:8)

Premise Questions: Who is it, that keeps me safe and sound? Where do I run to for refuge? Who alone is my wonderful inheritance and cup of blessing? Who diligently guards, with great efficacy, all that is mine? Who is it, that is ever faithful and true to always guide and instruct me? Who is it, that will never leave or forsake me, no matter come what may? Who is it, that knows me better than anyone else ever has or ever will? Who is it, that I know that I know, being fully assured and completely certain, is absolutely always with me, right by my side, keeping me steadfast and stable?

“I know the LORD is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.” (‭Psalms‬ ‭16:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

I shall hold and maintain a keen sense of awareness, having a constant and fixed attentive gaze upon The LORD GOD Almighty; being ever tuned into His presence that surrounds me on every side. I’m wont to have Him close by my side, therefore, I hold Him in the highest regard and place of honor; for The LORD GOD Almighty’s ever present help is indispensable to me, in my daily walk. And with Him, there’s nothing that can ever harm or separate me from His eternal purpose and presence. (Psalms 16:8 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The answer to all of the premise questions is: It is The LORD GOD Almighty, The Creator of Heaven and earth, a strong tower of refuge, strength and safety that the righteous can run into for protection and find complete peace and refreshing rest. The LORD GOD is The One who is my ultimate prize and eternal reward, my Blessed Hope, my cup of salvation and gloriously splendid, wonderful inheritance. The LORD GOD is The One who can keep, guard and guarantee delivery to me, all that is promised and divinely destined to be mine. The LORD GOD is The Faithful and True Shepherd, The One who leads, guides and instructs me, and will always provide for me. It is The LORD GOD Almighty, that has promised to never leave or forsake me, no mater what may happen or come my way. It is The LORD God that knows me better than anyone else ever has or ever will, as He already knew me even before I was being formed, by Him, in my mother’s womb! And, it was He, that divinely designed and knitted each and every one of the unique and wonderfully complex parts of my being together, in perfect symmetry! And finally, it is The LORD GOD that always, without exception, every time, all the time, is right by my side, helping me to stay resolute, calm, cool and collected, steadfast, stable and strong, never dissuaded, always persuaded, never shaken, swayed or rattled, nor ever losing my conviction and confidence, because I know that I know, He is always by my side, ready, willing and more than able to help and assist me in every way. Blessings…
