SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/12- “Blessing And Cursing Ought Not To Come From The Same Source And Same Place!” (James 3:10)

Premise Question: How can blessing and cursing come from the same source and place, and is this even possible; and why should we ever give any credence to or be tolerant of it, and finally, how and what can and should we do about confronting it?

“And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth. Surely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right!” (‭‭James‬ ‭3:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

What is this that I’m hearing, coming from your mouths; both, expressions of appreciation, grateful homage, with high acclaim and devotion, as well as, expressions of profane obscenities that are blasphemous, filled with obloquial hurtful abusive language? My most beloved and cherished fellow members of The Company of The Redeemed, this should not be occurring, as it is completely unacceptable and incongruent behavior, that should never be a part of our common practice, as believers in Jesus Christ. (James 3:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Oh, but it all too often, unfortunately, ends up being reality and is the case! The reason why one can have both blessing and cursing, coming, seemingly, from the same source, is because there has been some kind of pollution spill at the place of the pure fountainhead source, the heart, and then, it flows out from there as no longer being pure, but polluted, convoluted and diluted by the essence of what is contained within the spewing, spouting, spilling of raw filthy sewage, emanating from a polluted heart; which then targets and delivers its vileness, to its intended recipients, with a poisonous and gushing tongue! Most often, it has a negative affect on more than just its intended victims, as there is always an overflow of this kind of expression!

We must not ever allow our pure source, our hearts, which have been cleansed and made pure by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, that was applied to our hearts, at the time of our salvation conversion experience, to once again become polluted with vile and sinful practices and behaviors, nor bitterness, resentment and a reluctance or reticence to us being unwilling to walk in release and extend forgiveness whenever and to whomever, as is needed and necessary.

We must always be cognizant and aware of our credibility and reputation, needing to be established and kept, as it is always going to be put on display for all to see; especially those that are still in darkness and needing to be set free. So, therefore, we must not ever act in a way that is unbecoming to a follower of Jesus Christ, but if and when we do, which some of us most certainly have done or will do, perhaps even yet again, we must choose to immediately, with humility, sue for peace, seek the mercy and forgiveness of Papa God and others, and then begin again, with the powerful and efficacious cleansing that comes as a result of our confession and repentance.

The issue of blessing and cursing coming from seemingly the same delivery source—our mouths, should never be tolerated and should always be confronted swiftly; by ourselves within ourselves, and also by those who are spiritual, and who will, in love, with a humble, gentle, merciful and kind spirit, and with the divine and intentional purpose of bringing restoration, healing and reconciliation, into the life of the one being held accountable.

Remember, dearly beloved brothers and sisters, The Holy Writ declares that: Out of the preponderance of what is contained in the abundance of the heart, the mouth is filled with it, and the tongue spews and vomits it out all over anyone that is close enough to be spilled all over, with its vileness.

But, if the source is kept pure and the mouth and tongue is under control and kept clean, then there is much blessing, encouragement and refreshing that shall gush forth and pour over anyone close by!

Each and every day, we have a choice, we can choose to either spread Papa God’s GRACE, or spray man’s MACE! GRACE is: God’s Redeeming Atonement Covers Everyone! MACE is: Misery, Antagonism, Criticism, Entangling!

When our hearts are free of debris, then it’s easy to spread Papa God’s GRACE! So, keep your heart free of debris, flush the flesh and stay refreshed, and you’ll be a refreshing and a wellspring of blessings to others, as well! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/09- “Take Just One Tiny Sip, And You Will Surely See, And Then Want More!” (Psalms 34:8)

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: 10/09- “Take Just One Tiny Sip, And You Will Surely See, And Then Want More!” (Psalms 34:8)

Premise Question: Where can we go to find real joy, true satisfaction, complete fulfillment and safe refuge, that will truly satisfy our hunger, and quench the thirsting of our souls?

“Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!” (‭‭Psalms‬ ‭34:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Come see, perceive and receive, ascertaining for yourself, by personally sampling just one sip of The LORD GOD Almighty’s wonderful goodness; His great generosity, lavishing love, magnificent mercy and the grandeur of His gracious favor. For when you drink in His goodness, you shall absolutely experience an exhilarating sensation, that will not be disappointing in anywise and will be quite tasty, satisfying and completely fulfilling to your spirit, soul and body; bringing you back again and again, to drink deep to your fill, even to overflowing, of the pure and refreshing, thirst quenching drink, that totally restores and renews. You will be greatly blessed, as you joyfully partake, drinking in His goodness and taking cover and refuge, in the shelter of His protection, safety and manifest presence. (Psalms 34:8 PDCP)

Bottom Line: It’s quite apparent, as well as somewhat revealing, that for many of us, as humankind, we tend to hunger and thirst after many different kinds of things in this life. We make every effort and attempt, in order to try and satisfy the deep hunger and unquenchable thirst, that comes from deep within the within of each of our innermost beings; which is the very core of who we are and what we truly want, need and desire.

Some of us give ourselves over to divers kinds of behaviors, whether they be inordinate affections, good, bad, indifferent or even acceptable and safe behaviors; always on the ultimate quest, of searching and seeking out just the right one or ones that will bring succor, joy, satisfaction and fulfillment to our life and existence.

There are others of us, who try and find total satisfaction, complete fulfillment, real joy, great happiness and a sense of completing ourselves, through the various and sundry relationships that we have and develop with others; putting a tremendous amount of pressure upon ourselves and them, to perform up to the level of our, (sad but true, for many of us) unrealistic expectations. This then, because of disappointment or hurt, may lead some to look for a sense of relief or a way to escape; so they, therefore, may give themselves over to abusing different kinds of substances, along with activities that become extremely destructive; such as, but not limited too, alcohol, drugs, porn, video game playing, gambling, adrenaline rush junkies, dangerous adventures, just to mention a few.

Many of us may even have goals, dreams, desires and aspirations for having a successful career, with lots of recognition, validation, commendation and great achievements; which in themselves, are not necessarily bad, if we have the proper attitude, motivation and values, with a divine perspective and purpose.

What have we committed our lives too? What have we invested and given our time, treasure and talent too? What are we consumed with, in this life? What drives us? What or who are we pursuing, in this life?

Many of us seem to have a tendency to want to sample and try everything and everyone in this life! When what we truly need, desire and want, is set right before our eyes; for it truly is fully portrayed and simply explained for each of us, in Papa God’s Holy Writ, who is The Creator of all that is good, right, Holy and pure, and is also full of joy and His great unfailing love, mercy and grace.

He shows us all, in such a beautiful way, and easily understood manner, that anyone who will pause and listen, and then taste and see, will have their eyes opened, their understanding enlarged, their hearts filled, with His joy and love, and then, their spirit, soul and body will be absolutely refreshed, renewed and totally restored! Hallelujah!

Take a sip! I challenge and dare you to go for it! You’ll never regret it! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/21- “The LORD GOD Almighty—Your Papa God, Sings Songs Of Joy Over You!” (Zephaniah 3:17)

Posted on Updated on

1 DAY LATE 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: 09/21- “The LORD GOD Almighty—Your Papa God, Sings Songs Of Joy Over You!” (Zephaniah 3:17)

Premise Question: The conspicuously obvious question to ask is: Why would and does Papa God take great delight in you with extravagant expressions of mirth and gladness, and sing songs of exultation and joy over you?

“For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” (‭‭Zephaniah‬ ‭3:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

The LORD GOD Almighty—your Papa God, is mighty in battle; for there is none that can stand against Him. He has no peers, as a Mighty Warrior, for He is the overwhelming Victor in every skirmish, fight or combat encounter. He is ever present, close by your side, at all times, on every occasion, in support of you; no matter the situation or circumstance, every moment of every hour of each and every day of your life’s sojourn. He is always there to bring release, to save and rescue, and then ultimately to take great delight in redeeming you, as His very own. It is because of His great unfailing love for you, He will never again mention or bring to His remembrance, by reminding you of your past and the times or occasions where you faltered, failed and flopped. On the contrary, He will celebrate and rejoice, with jubilant festive songs of exultation, by singing Heavenly Melodies of joy and elation over you. (Zephaniah 3:17 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Papa God’s unfailing and absolutely immeasurable love that He has for us, His unique, made in His own image creation, is truly way beyond our perception, comprehension or understanding. But, we can accept the truth of His infallible Word, that He has chosen to live and reside amongst us, as our Mighty Warrior, Comforting Counselor and Redeeming Savior!

We can also accept that He is a lavishing loving and delightfully doting Papa God, who takes an extremely high degree of pleasure and enjoyment in singing songs of exultation and joy over us; making us glad, filling us with cheer and joy, calming all of our tortuous thoughts and worrisome fears, relieving us of apprehension and angst, dread and distress and causing us to fully experience a serene rest and tranquil peace.

Why would and does He do this? Because of His great love for His very own chosen children, of which we, The Company of The Redeemed, are most assuredly are! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/15- “The One Who Suffered And Died, Once And For All, At One Specific Time, For The Sins Of EVERYONE!” (1 Peter 3:18)

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: 09/15- “The One Who Suffered And Died, Once And For All, At One Specific Time, For The Sins Of EVERYONE!” (1 Peter 3:18)

Premise Question: What’s the reality, and vitally important significance, of why Jesus Christ was The One that was chosen, by Papa God, to suffer and die, in order to pay for the sins of everyone?

“Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit.” (‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭3:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

For Jesus Christ, The One True Sovereign LORD GOD of all, willingly offered up His life, to the excruciating agony of physical pain, emotional distress and mental anguish; taking upon Himself, by bearing the shame and degradation once and for all, in His physical body, by being put to death on a cruel cross, for all of humankind’s sin. He, being the ultimate sacrifice of perfection and innocence, laid His life down on behalf of everyone—the imperfect and guilty, in order to open “The Way” that leads us back to restoration of a righteous relationship with Papa God—The Creator, who is The Father of our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ, who after His death, was made fully alive in The Spirit. (1Peter 3:18 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The real and only justifiable reason Jesus Christ was selected, by Papa God, to suffer and die a horrible death, in order to pay for the sins of every one of humankind, is, was and forever will be, because He was the only One who was uniquely qualified to fulfill the highest standards of absolute purity and holiness; in that, He was the divine, perfect sacrifice, without any flaws or blemishes, and therefore, was, is and forever shall be, the only One completely capable of fulfilling the righteous requirements of Papa God’s righteous law.

We, on our own, could not ever earn, deserve, find, or ever even remotely have the wherewithal or ability to pay our own way, in order to gain entrance into the Kingdom of The Most High, and then, also have a right and honorable relationship with Papa God! It’s only possible through The One, who suffered and died, once and for all, at a specific time, in the whole history of humankind, upon a cruel cross, for the sins of everyone!

And, although He, The One, suffered and died a horrible, demeaning and abjectly degrading death, to pay for the sins of the many, His sacrificial and most efficacious death, has made a way, where there was no way, for each one of us, of humankind, to be brought safely back, to the place of our real home, which is, to live and dwell in the very presence of The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty’s eternal abode.

All this has been made possible, because the One who suffered and died, was brought back to life, through the power of The Holy Spirit, and that same Spirit, that gave Jesus Christ resurrection life, now gives us new life; as He now lives within the within of the innermost part of each and everyone who has experienced resurrection life through Jesus Christ, The One, and by the enlivening of The Holy Spirit!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/03- “Approach Him And You’ll Find Comfort, Peace And Real Refreshing Rest, For All Eternity!” (Matthew 11:28)

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: 09/03- “Approach Him And You’ll Find Comfort, Peace And Real Refreshing Rest, For All Eternity!” (Matthew 11:28)

Premise Question: What is the unique, one of a kind, being incomparable and absolutely wonderful message, with promise, contained within The LORD’S compelling bidding, to COME unto Him?

“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew‬ ‭11:28‬ ‭NLT)

“Approach Me, The LORD GOD Almighty of all comfort and peace; for My arms are open wide, ready to receive anyone and everyone who is exhausted, lacking vim and vigor, no longer feeling fresh, but burned-out, drained, fatigued, lacking patience, having become jaded by the vagaries and vicissitudes of life. Draw close to Me, by confidently entering into My presence; bringing with you all of your heavy oppressive burdens that you’re presently trying to hold, carry and manage, on your own, all alone, without any help from anyone. And I, The LORD GOD of all comfort and peace, will give you a respite from all of your distressing tumult, by granting you a completely satisfying rest, that rejuvenates, refreshes and renews you, in your body, soul and spirit.” (Matthew 11:28 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Within the urgent bidding of The LORD’s especially prepared RSVP invitation to COME unto Him, which also comes with an incredible assuring guarantee is: R-S-V-P…Redemption, Refreshing, Rest, Relief, Release, Respite, Restoration and Renewal—Salvation, Solace, Safekeeping, Success, Sustentation, Surety, Support, and Shelter—Victory, Vision, Value, Verity, Vacation, Vaccine, Vim and Vigor—Promise, Protection, Perfection, Peace, Provision, Preservation, Possibility and Possession. C-O-M-E…CHRIST, (The Most High, Sovereign Almighty LORD GOD)—OFFERS, (the provision of salvation and releasing freedom to)—ME, (so that I, along with everyone else who believes, receives and accepts Papa God’s gracious invitation, can obtain)—EASE, (from their heavy burdens of shame, strife, sorrow, scorn, sickness and sin!)

So, let each one of us take The LORD’s most generous and gracious offer to give us relief, refreshing and rejuvenating rest from the heavy burdens of our physical exhaustion, our mental fatigue, our emotional duress and stress and our spiritual emaciation, due to our sinful practices.

Answer and personally accept The LORD’S RSVP invitation to COME unto Him, and then, give Him all of your heavy burdens and find comfort and peace, and real refreshing rest for all eternity! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/23- “A Delightful Crown Of Victory!” (Psalms 149:4)

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: 08/23- “A Delightful Crown Of Victory!” (Psalms 149:4)

Premise Question: How can it be that our total surrender is what guarantees our ultimate and complete victory in life?

“For the LORD delights in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.”
‭‭(Psalms‬ ‭149:4‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

For The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty Himself takes great pleasure in filling His own precious and most cherished people, The Company of The Redeemed, with exuberant joy, satisfaction and fulfillment; for He places upon their heads, all those who walk in humility before Him, a guaranteed triumphant glorious crown, that will never fade, nor can it ever be taken away in defeat, as they, His people, have delightfully pleased The LORD in their humble surrender to Him, and have therefore, been rewarded the everlasting crown of victory! (Psalms 149:4 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Our ultimate triumph and crown of victory is inextricably tied to our humility and total surrender to The LORD GOD Almighty. For when we please and truly delight The LORD, by totally and completely surrendering everything to Him, it causes Him to honor and reward us, by conferring upon us a glorious victors crown of everlasting joy, peace, righteousness, and eternal life.

Our ultimate victory, is therefore, absolutely assured and guaranteed, when, and only when, we humbly surrender to Him every area and part of our lives; our wills, our relationships, our ways, our work, our behaviors our goals, dreams and aspirations, all of it to His way, His will, divine purposes and desires for our lives.

The only way to win then, and receive the delightful, satisfying and fulfilling, everlasting crown of victory, is total and complete surrender! Blessings…

Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/09- “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 an out in the open, unashamed and without fear, personal relationship with His Son Jesus Christ, 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, O LORD, is genuinely sincere and august, but with a rejoicing spirit and positive outlook, for my devotion is to You and only You, O LORD! It is with my whole heart, that I have an attitude of gratitude, a 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 fully acknowledge You as The One True 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 and put on display, for all the whole world to see, know and be made aware of Your glorious grace and mighty acts! This is where I start, and what I do!

I therefore, strongly implore and encourage each of you that happens to read this, to consider doing likewise, for it shall bring you great joy and wonderful benefits. Blessings…
