SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/08- “The LORD Protects The Righteous!” (Psalms 97:10)

Premise Question: Where does our help, security and protection come from, and what must we do in order to get it?

“You who love the LORD, hate evil! He protects the lives of his godly people and rescues them from the power of the wicked.” (‭‭Psalms‬ ‭97:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

The LORD GOD Almighty Himself surrounds The Company of The Redeemed with His mighty angel armies of Heaven; shielding, with supreme protection, all those who’ve given up their evil ways and practices, and have thus, declared their undying, steady devotion and true allegiance and love for Him, by doing so! The LORD GOD Almighty rescues and sets the righteous free; by emancipating them from the power and influence of all those who are malevolent and practice iniquity. (Psalms 97:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, The Company of The Redeemed, who love The LORD with our whole heart, mind and strength, must, (as it is not optional) not only detest and dislike, but have a real hatred—a full blown aversion to all things that are evil; even to the point of avoiding the appearance of evil! It is what is required of us!

Then, no matter what happens or what we may have to face or go through in this life, we shall always be confident and fully assured, that we are completely covered, by the ultimate supreme protection plan of The LORD GOD Almighty, and shall thus, be eternally safe and secure, in The Everlasting Arms of Papa God; because the wicked doesn’t any have jurisdiction or influence over us. We accomplish this, of course, with The LORD’s enabling.

So, where does our help, security and supreme protection come from? It comes only from The LORD, The Maker of Heaven and earth and everything therein! For nothing else and no one else will be able to rescue and release us from the clutches and powerful darkness of the wicked evil of the iniquitous!

Blessed be The Name of The LORD, who always faithfully protects the righteous! (Psalms 121) Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/05- “If We Do Our Part, Papa God Will Absolutely Do His!” (Leviticus 19:18)

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: 09/05- “If We Do Our Part, Papa God Will Absolutely Do His!” (Leviticus 19:18)

Premise Question: What is our part, our duty to perform, our responsibility to fulfill, our attitude, approach and behavior to exhibit and have towards others, no matter what; and, if we are able to do this, with The LORD’S help, what does Papa God say He will definitely do, as His part, if we will do our part?

““Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against a fellow Israelite, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.” ‭‭(Leviticus‬ ‭19:18‬ ‭NLT‬)

“Do not search for ways, by trying to discover or devise a plan to retaliate and repay someone, in order to exact punishment in a vindictive or vengeful way upon them, nor should you ever, for any reason or justification, continue to tolerate carrying or holding, in yourself, ill will and burdensome feelings of resentment and bitterness towards others; but, choose to walk in release and love towards everyone and treat others as you yourself desire to be treated, and don’t forget to always leave room for Me, Papa God, to act upon your behalf. I Am, The LORD GOD Almighty, who made you.” (Leviticus 19:18 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Our part is a deliberate, and perhaps, for some, even an extremely difficult choice; especially if one attempts to do it on their own and in their own strength, without relying upon the enabling help of The LORD.

We must choose to walk in love and release towards others, by forgiving them and then, letting go of the pain and choosing to hold onto the promise given to us in Papa God’s Holy Writ!

Our duty and responsibility is to love Papa God, walk in His love and release and then love others in the same way that He loves and forgives us.

Our approach should be one of humility, patience and long suffering, and also, that we fully accept and recognize that we can’t do this on our own!

Our attitude should be a gentle, meek, kind and forbearing one, without holding or bearing a grudge, being vindictive, bitter, resentful, hateful or seeking a way of exacting revenge and getting even, by retaliating and attempting to settle a score ourselves.

We are to bear with one another, but we ought not to be an angry bear, with each other! Be bearable, not unbearable!

So, what is our part? “To do what is right, to love mercy and to walk humbly before Papa God!” (Micah 6:8)

Papa God’s part, which He will certainly be faithful to do and accomplish, is to rescue, restore, renew, and redeem His very own, and then, He will surely deliver His vengeance upon any and all those who’ve hurt, attacked or in some way, come against His precious and greatly beloved very own children! The LORD will repay! The LORD will avenge! The LORD will carry out His retribution and perfect judgements, done in a way, fashion and manner that is far beyond any way or thing that we could ever imagine or even ever be capable of carrying out! And besides, we are to forgive, release and ask The LORD to be merciful upon them, not asking Him to go and “get em” and to “get em” real good!

So, if we do our part, Papa God will most definitely and most thoroughly absolutely do His part! Blessings…

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- 09/02- “We Find Refreshing Rest In Him!” (Psalms 46:10)

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: 09/02- “We Find Refreshing Rest In Him!” (Psalms 46:10)

Premise Question: What does it truly mean, for the people of Papa God, to be still and know, that He is The Great I Am—The Most High, Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty?

“Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.”‭‭ (Psalms‬ ‭46:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Be strengthened, encouraged and uplifted, with full assurance, by the reality of who it is that says, “Cease and desist from all your laborious activity and worrisome thoughts. Pause and reflect, resting in My tranquil serenity and peaceful presence. Comprehend and then, apprehend, by possessing fully, this wonderful knowledge, that, I Am The LORD GOD Almighty. Therefore, because I Am The LORD GOD Almighty, I will be lifted up to the highest place of praise and honor, in the midst of every tribe, tongue, kindred and creed. I will be extolled and worshiped, by all the nations that inhabit and live in the earth, which I love and created with My spoken Word.” (Psalms 46:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: To be still and know that Papa God is The Great I Am, is to fully accept and recognize Him as The LORD of Heaven’s Armies; the One who is our refuge and strength, and is ever ready, at a moments notice, to bring protection, deliverance, joy, healing and help, for His own.

So, there is never a reason or instance to fear or be frightened; no matter what may be going on in our life, the life of the nation or even the world.

Who He is and what He wants to be to each of us, as well as, do for every beloved individual person in His creation, is to have a personal and intimate relationship, with each person, setting them free, by releasing them from captivity and the bondage of sin; so that, we can truly worship, honor and praise Him in Spirit and in Truth.

So, when we are still, and really know Papa God, we have accepted, as factual and true, who Papa God truly is; and therefore, will remain calm, cool and collected, even in the midst of a terrible storm, outrageous chaos and great turmoil! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/17- “In Papa God’s Perfect Time—Not Our Impatient Urgent Time!” (1 Peter 5:6)

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: 08/17- “In Papa God’s Perfect Time—Not Our Impatient Urgent Time!” (1 Peter 5:6)

Premise Question: What does authentic humility look like, involve and entail?

“So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.” (‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Do yourself a huge favor, by coming before Papa God with a humble and contrite attitude and approach, without pride or arrogance, but with gentleness, meekness and a respectful submissive attitude. So in consequence of you submitting yourself underneath Papa God’s superior ability, skill, power, strength, authority, unique purpose and specific divine will for your life, in this manner, He will support and undergird you, by lifting you up and placing you in the perfect position, in order to accomplish His unique purpose and divine will for your life; of course though, you must be willing to accept and understand, that He will not do this in your own time frame, but in accordance to His perfect timing, when it is due, on time, and not a moment before or after His divinely appointed time. (1 Peter 5:6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Here is what I believe authentic humility looks like: Leading by example, for our actions and behavior must align with our words. We must be modest, clothed in humility, meekness, gentleness, kindness, with the obvious absence of any self-promotion, arrogance, pride, or egotism. Not given to being vengeful, spiteful or full of guile, nor insolent, indolent or impetuous, but courteous, kind, polite, obliging, showing respect and honor towards others and with a complete reverential awe towards Papa God.

This is what I believe authentic humility involves: Waiting obediently, relying, yielding, trusting fully in Papa God. Sacrificing our own wants and desires for His, with a joyful, expectant, confident and patient, hope filled faith. Always having an attitude and approach of servitude and submission to Papa God, our elders and to others. Always putting others needs before our own, by engaging in the interests, emotions, and challenges of others, by being touched and moved with compassion and genuine concern, to identify with them and then, embrace them in their plight, with the love of Papa God.

Finally, I believe authentic humility entails: Our faith in and love for Papa God and His Son Jesus Christ, our redeeming LORD and Savior, which compels us to, with thanksgiving and gratitude, eagerly serve Papa God and others, as it is a necessary consequence and outgrowth of our faith and devotion to Papa God, as The Spirit of Christ now living in us propels us into action and puts a demand and requirement upon our lives that encompasses our time, talent and treasure.

Our motivation though, for becoming humble, must never be to do it because of what we may derive, or are going to get out of it, but simply, that we humble ourselves before Papa God because we are eager to serve Him and desire to please Him.

And, we must always remember, it’s not about our perception of time, but it’s all about His perfect timing, for He does all things well, in His time. So we wait patiently, full of joy and an expectant hope, upon His never early or late, but always on time, divinely appointed and established time. Blessings…

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

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: 07/26- “The Great I AM—Is Always There!” (Isaiah 41:10)

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

“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” ‭‭(Isaiah‬ ‭41:10‬ ‭NLT)

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

Bottom Line: If Papa God is for us, who or what can be against us? Nothing and no one! Therefore, no one and nothing will ever be successful in keeping Papa God’s will and purpose for our lives from coming to fruition. Therefore, there is never going to be a valid time or reason why we should ever be fearful, frightened, distraught, timid or afraid!

Papa God has promised that He will never leave or forsake us! Whatever He says He will do, He most definitely will do, because He is ever faithful, and when He does it, He will do it thoroughly, completely and that, with excellence, honor and glory.

When The LORD tells us to not even allow our hearts to ever be troubled or to be dismayed, we can take Him at His Word! When He tells us that in this life, this world, we are going to experience trouble, trials, temptations, attacks, ridicule, suffering, persecution, but, we are to be full of joy and cheer, and to not be discouraged because of any of it, as He has overcome this world and everything that could ever happen to us in this life; we are to rejoice and be glad, for He has promised to give us His strength, His peace, and His comfort, encouragement, refreshing, restoration and renewal!

Our’s is the victory forever and always, because The Most High, Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, is our LORD and Savior—The Great I AM, who is always there for us! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/24- “There’s Power In Confession And Prayer!” (James 5:16)

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: 07/24- “There’s Power In Confession And Prayer!” (James 5:16)

Premise Question: Is it even remotely possible, to have the sensational and absolutely miraculous outcome, that effectuates and produces the greatly needed and desired results of total healing, real restoration and complete deliverance, for a person who is in sin, and needing to be made whole, without an open and truthful confession by them, along with, serious in intention, purposeful prayer, offered up urgently, with diligence and devotion, by a person who is righteous?

“Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.” (‭‭James‬ ‭5:16‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

So then, because there are wonderful results when we utilize the power of prayer, in our everyday lives, our ordinary interaction with one another should be, that we openly acknowledge, owning up to our own faults, our willful and deliberate lapses in good and right behavior, which are violations and transgressions of Papa God’s Holy Law, by being open, transparent and accountable to each other. We should also stand in the gap for one another, by offering up specific prayers of entreaties and requests for complete healing and restoration of spirit, soul and body; both for the individual and for the entire Company Of The Redeemed. The very act and ordinary practice of praying, with purposeful intent, as an individual member of The Company Of The Redeemed, is most potent. For it has a most desirable effect of exerting a great and mighty force, not of this world, that produces an efficacious result; which also prepares and makes ready, the individual, as well as, the whole Company Of The Redeemed, for works of service in Papa God’s Kingdom. (James 5:16 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The quick and succinct answer to the premise question is: NOPE! Not-Obtainable-Possible-Ever! The reason it is not even remotely possible, is because where there is sin present and being practiced in an individual’s daily life, there is a greatly diminished capacity and availability of Papa God’s efficacious power to operate in the individual believer’s life; due to the fact that sin completely nullifies the marvelous and the miraculous from happening in the life of the believer who continues to participate in and practice sin.

Without a sincere, humble, open and honest confession of one’s sin and desperate need for wholeness, healing, restoration and deliverance, along with the efficacious and fervently offered up prayers of a believer in right standing with Papa God, the believer in need will not experience the desired and greatly needed results. For it is only the righteous who are granted the power and authority necessary to effect, in a positive way, the desperate condition of the one who is in need of deliverance and healing!

So, let’s confess our sins one to another, and then, pray for one another to receive the total healing and complete deliverance and restoration that’s made available to everyone of us, through the righteous among us, from Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty!

There is power in confession, and great deliverance through prayer, with the emerging result of wholeness and healing for every believer! Blessings…
