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

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: 08/03- “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; thereby, 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 divine supplements, nourishment and reinforcements, of His Living Word, His personal Holy Spirit and our times of intimacy spent with Him in personal and corporate prayer times and personal and corporate worship times.

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!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/31- “The LORD Isn’t Dragging His Feet!” (2 Peter 3:9)

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: 07/31- “The LORD Isn’t Dragging His Feet!” (2 Peter 3:9)

Premise Question: Ultimately, what’s really at stake and what is the final outcome going to sound and look like for the righteous, who are members, in good standing, of The Company of The Redeemed, and for the wicked, who are not members of The Company of The Redeemed?

“So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while keeping the wicked under punishment until the day of final judgment.” (‭‭2 Peter‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

The One True Sovereign God, who is The LORD of all, is not slow, sluggish or slack, nor is He dragging His feet, so to speak, waiting for time on the “Clock of Humankind” to expire and run out, in fulfilling and satisfying completely, holding Himself accountable, to every declarative, expressed assurance He’s made, in regards to rescuing the righteous, as some would assume or conclude, based upon their own comprehension of what it means to be slow. Rather though, The LORD is purposeful, being quite deliberate in His approach toward each individual person of humankind. For He is exhibiting an extraordinary amount of His liberating love, His glorious grace, His marvelous mercy and His perfect patience, with each individual person. He does this, because His greatest desire is that not even one individual person living on the earth, shall die; suffering utter destruction, eternal separation and spiritual death, but that, every individual person living on the earth will have the time needed and opportunity given them to experience salvation; through a turning away from and repenting of all their sin. But, for those wicked individuals who willfully choose to refuse Papa God’s overture of His merciful and most gracious love and redemption, before their time expires here on earth, by rejecting His Son Jesus Christ, they will be held and punished in Hell, until the day of final judgment arrives. (2Peter 3:9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Ultimately what’s at stake is a choice between becoming righteous, through Papa God’s gracious gift of salvation, with the glorious outcome of being able to enjoy and experience eternal life in the very presence of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, or continuing to be wicked, by refusing and rejecting Papa God’s gracious and merciful provision of redemption, and thus, incurring the horrible outcome of Papa God’s judgment for wickedness; which unfortunately is, enduring an existence of being eternally separated from the presence of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, experiencing an eternal spiritual death, while being forever punished and tortured in the body and soul.

The righteous will one day hear the voice of The LORD say: “Well done, for you have been a good and faithful servant! You did not reject or deny Me before others, nor did you refuse My offer to rescue you; therefore, you may now enter into and forever live, rejoicing in My presence, to fully experience and thoroughly enjoy all that I, The LORD, have prepared and made ready for you to be blessed by, and take pleasure in.

Conversely though, the wicked dead will hear, those who are held captive in Hell, a torturous place of unrelenting punishment, loneliness and despair, until the day of final judgment, which takes place at The Great White Throne, where Hell and the earth give up all of the wicked unrighteous to be judged for eternity; “Depart from Me, you wicked evil doer, for I never knew you! Your name is not written down in The Lamb’s Book of Life, for you are not covered by My shed blood, as you chose to reject Me, by refusing My gracious offer of redemption and salvation—My divine plan of rescue for your spirit, soul and body; therefore, I cast you into The Burning Lake of Fire, along with all the other wicked, to forever be separated from My Glorious Presence, and to be eternally punished, in your body and soul, for your wickedness!”

Those of us who are still here and alive on this earth, having not yet experienced physical death, let us, if we’ve not already done so, stop dragging our feet, and accept Papa God’s gracious gift of salvation, redemption and the miraculous rescue of our souls, before it is too late, to one day enjoy and experience life on a outrageously delightful and extremely glorious level.

Let us thankfully accept and joyfully receive our own personal escape from Papa God’s judgment, which is an eternal death, separation and the unrelenting torment, torture and punishment of the body and soul.

What is your eternal stake and outlook? The choice is now, and forever will be yours! Choose the righteous life that is yours for the taking, accepting and receiving; so then, you can experience and enjoy its splendid benefits throughout all of eternity.

Just confess, repent and believe on The Name of The LORD Jesus Christ, who has purchased your escape from eternal torment and death, and salvation is yours!

ESCAPE: Eternal-Salvation-Came-At-Perfections-Expense! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/15- “Papa God Is The Undefeated, Indisputable, Arm Wresting Champion Of All Time!” (Jeremiah 32:17)

Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/15- “Papa God Is The Undefeated, Indisputable, Arm Wresting Champion Of All Time!” (Jeremiah 32:17)

Premise Question: Is there any rhyme or reason, for those who’ve put their faith and trust in The Sovereign LORD, to ever give pause to or spend any amount of time worrying or fretting about anything; when knowing and accepting as the indisputable truth, that Papa God has never been presented with a challenge, issue or problem that is too difficult or hard for Him to overcome, figure out, solve and resolve?

“O Sovereign LORD! You made the heavens and earth by your strong hand and powerful arm. Nothing is too hard for you!”
(‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭32:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

“Behold, Supreme Sovereign Ruler and LORD! It is with the greatest aplomb and the loudest applause, that I exclaim with exuberant joy, that it is You, O LORD, and only You, that created the expanse of the heavens, with just a spoken word, and brought into existence the earth and everything in it; including, shaping humankind into Your own image, through Your loving, unmatched, all powerful extended arm and hand, from the dust of the earth. Then, breathing life into them, both male and female, it became absolutely obvious that there was, is, and shall never be, anything that will ever pose a problem or difficulty that You can’t handle, won’t be able to solve or rectify!” (Jeremiah 32:17 PDCP)

Bottom Line: When I was a much younger and stronger man, I had a fascination with arm wrestling. It was far and few between, on the extremely rare occasion, during my younger days, that I would experience loosing an arm wrestling challenge. What I and all arm wrestling contestants eventually discover, though, is there’s always going to be someone out there, with a stronger grip or better technique or even some unusual mitigating circumstance, such as, an arm breaking, as a result of the tremendous pressure being endured during the intense contest, when the bone breaks because of the muscle being stronger than the bone it’s attached to; which is not ever a pleasant thing to see or experience, but, eventually it’s going to happen, someone else will prevail, as everyone experiences defeat, one way or another.

There is One, though, that has not ever and will not ever be defeated! His Name is, The Sovereign Supreme LORD GOD Almighty! He has taken on all comers, all challengers, all contestants, and has not just beaten them all, but has utterly destroyed and completely annihilated every one of them!

The One, who has put the stars in place, set the planets upon their course, the Maker of heaven and earth and everything therein, is always faithfully reliable, steady and stalwart, ever true to His Word and His Divine Nature!

The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty’s strong hand, that supply’s our needs and sustains us, gets a grip upon us that can never be broken. His strong and all powerful arm takes on every challenge and overcomes it, every issue and resolves it, every problem and solves it!

Papa God wins every arm wrestling match convincingly, and without any struggle, that He’s ever been in or will yet be in! For nothing has ever been, nor ever shall be, considered too difficult or too hard for The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty—Papa God, “The Undefeated, Indisputable, Arm Wrestling Champion” of all time!

So, therefore, we’ve not a rhyme or reason to ever fear, fret or worry about anything or anyone! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/03- “The LORD GOD Almighty Is Our Solid Rock! (1 Samuel 2:2)

Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/03- “The LORD GOD Almighty Is Our Solid Rock! (1 Samuel 2:2)

Premise Question: Is Jesus Christ really The Solid Rock of our salvation, or should we look and wait for another?

No one is holy like the LORD! There is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God. (‭1 Samuel‬ ‭2‬:‭2‬ NLT)

There is absolutely no one with the authority or awesome power, nor with the pure divine qualities, that can even begin to be compared to The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty! There is no one that’s “over or above” You, O LORD! There is no person or god that is greater or higher after You! There is nothing and no one else that is to be honored, with worship, praise, adoration and veneration, but You, O Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty! Furthermore, there is no one nor nothing else in this world or beyond, that can compare to Your ultimate security and protection plan, Your abundant provision, Your safe, strong and secure, undergirding loving support; for You, O LORD, are the sure firm foundation on which we stand and shall survive for all of eternity! The Solid Rock of our salvation, that with full assurance, can be completely trusted and relied upon, because we are the sheep of Your pasture, Your very own chosen and greatly beloved people. (1 Samuel 2:2 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Since this scripture is referring to Jesus Christ, who is the same yesterday, as He is today and shall be forever, whether it’s the Old Testament or The New Testament, here is an example of that eternal truth from The New Testament. There was an occasion that the disciples of John The Baptist came to Jesus, at the behest of John, who was in prison at the time, to ask Him if He truly was “The One” they had all been, with great expectations, looking and waiting for, or was there to be another? Jesus told John’s disciples to go back and tell him that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers and those that are sick are completely cured, the deaf hear, the dead are even raised back to life and The Good News is being preached to the poor!

He also encouraged John, by telling John’s disciples to tell him that whoever does not turn away from the truth, because of Him, will be greatly blessed.

Jesus Christ The LORD is one of a kind! There is no other, has been no other, nor shall there ever be another! The mold wasn’t broken after Him, because there was no mold for Him, as it is He who created all the molds for everything, and nothing that was ever made was made without His divine design and hand.

He was there before there was a beginning and shall be there long after the end! Jesus Christ, The Solid Rock, who is The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty! There is no other! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/23- “We Are The Victors!” (Romans 8:37)

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: 06/23- “We Are The Victors!” (Romans 8:37)

Premise Question: Against all odds, and notwithstanding, given the amount of severe and calamitous events and circumstances that many, if not all of us, may have to endure, when being confronted, face to face, with the hardships and difficult challenges that come our way, in this life; how is it even remotely possible, that we would ever be crowned the undisputed, overwhelmingly victorious victors, and personally experience this outrageously, over the top, being unimaginable and unthinkable, absolutely stunning and decisive, one for the ages, victory, over it all?

No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭37‬ NLT)

There’s not a trouble or trial, nor a persecution, with threat of execution, whether we’re hunted or hungry, destitute or in constant danger; none of these difficulties or challenges will ever keep us from the overwhelming and complete victory that is assured for those who have placed their complete trust, faith and hope in Jesus Christ; who by laying down His life, as a ransom and perfect sacrifice, in our stead, has shown His great unfailing love toward us, thus making us “The Victors”—through Him. (Romans 8:37 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, every member of The Company of The Redeemed, are declared “The Victors,” because of the work done in Heaven and on earth, upon the cross and then in the grave and beyond, by Papa God and His Son, our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ.

For He and He alone, has defeated the evil one, the enemy of our soul, our sin, death, hell and the grave; therefore, He is our Champion, The One who gives us the victory, and thereby, has made us to be the conquering victors for all of eternity.

Like His word tells us: There’s not anything in this world or out of this world, that can separate us from Him and His great love for us! Even if we suffer or experience calamity, difficult times, trouble, trials or tribulations, in this life, none of it is ever an indicator or sign that He no longer loves us, or that His love for us has diminished in any way, shape, form or fashion.

Some of us may even experience the threat of death and even further still, some may even be slaughtered and killed for their faith! But, thanks be to Papa God, that in all and through all of this, we are made “The Victors” and shall triumph over all, through Christ Jesus our LORD!

Just remember the words of the Apostle Paul: And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering. (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭17‬ NLT) Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/21- “Papa God Carries Us In His Everlasting Arms!” (Psalms 68:19)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/21- “Papa God Carries Us In His Everlasting Arms!” (Psalms 68:19)

Premise Question: Does Papa God save us and carry us in His arms because we praise Him or does He do it because He loves us; and, do we praise Papa God because He loves, saves and carries us or is it because of who He is?

Praise the Lord; praise God our savior! For each day he carries us in his arms. (Psalms‬ ‭68‬:‭19‬ NLT)

All praise, honor and glory belong to The One True Sovereign LORD—Papa God, maker of Heaven and earth! We, Your beloved and unique creation, abandon ourselves in worship to You, our precious Savior, Messiah and King; For it is You, O LORD, who faithfully carries all of our heavy burdens for us. Each and every moment of everyday, You are rescuing Your very own, which we are, and forever will be. (Psalm 68:19 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We all should be extremely grateful that Papa God loves us, saves us and then carries us through each and every day of our lives, in His everlasting arms. But, more so, we ought to praise, worship, exalt and adore Him for who He is.

For all glory, honor, veneration and praise belong entirely to Him and Him alone, The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, who is The Creator, Redeemer, Savior, and The One who comforts, heals and restores His unique creation back to Himself, to an honorable, right, holy and fulfilling relationship; in order that they may enjoy sweet fellowship, the fullness of joy, perfect peace and tranquility, along with an abundant life to be fully experienced now and throughout all of eternity!

Oh, and by the way, if you were unable to get the jest of the answer to the question of whether or not Papa God carries us because we praise Him or because He loves us? Well, I leave you with just one verse, although, there are numerous ones to choose from: “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. (‭John‬ ‭3‬:‭16‬ NLT) Blessings…
