SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/20- “Love My Enemies? Loan Them Money Without Expectation Of Being Paid Back, And With Compassion? Wow!” (Luke 6:35-36)

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: 01/20- “Love My Enemies? Loan Them Money Without Expectation Of Being Paid Back, And With Compassion? Wow!” (Luke 6:35-36)

Premise Question: Is the reward from Heaven, the one that’s given to those who do what The LORD requests, not just suggests, of them to do, when considering how to deal with and treat their enemies, enough, and worth the trouble, testing, trials and tumult, that they may have to endure and go through, when choosing to show love and compassion, in spite of all the difficulties, toward their enemies?

“Love your enemies! Do good to them. Lend to them without expecting to be repaid. Then your reward from heaven will be very great, and you will truly be acting as children of the Most High, for he is kind to those who are unthankful and wicked. You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate. (‭Luke‬ ‭6‬:‭35-36‬ NLT)

You have enemies? Everyone does! They may be individuals you’ve been close to in the past, but because of entanglements, misunderstandings, unfulfilled expectations, hurtful words, actions or behaviors, that has now resulted in estrangement, from one another. Your fault, their fault, somebody else’s fault, does it really matter? No, not a bit, when it comes to how The LORD desires for us to treat our enemies. Treat them with kindness and humility. Giving to them when they are in need; doing kind acts of generosity, without any expectation of getting anything in return. For when you choose, and are able to do this, with The LORD’S enabling, of course, you qualify yourself for a reward and recognition from Heaven that is far beyond your imagination and comprehension. And, you will be showing everyone, that you are acting just like a child of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, Whom, by the way, is continuously showing His gracious favor and kindness to those who are forever ungrateful and utterly incorrigible. You, a member in good standing of The Company of The Redeemed, must take your lead from Papa God, which is: to be as compassionate as He always is towards others, even your enemies. (Luke 6:35-36 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Yes! The reward from Heaven is more than enough and worth every difficult person and difficulty we may encounter or have to endure. For all of Papa God’s promises are faithful and true! If we do what He has asked us to do, then He will do exactly as He says, and what He promises, He will do! And that, for our ultimate good and benefit! He will reward, He will restore, He will redeem, He will renew, He will refresh, He will reclaim, He will reconcile, He will regenerate, He will reveal, He will rejoice and sing over us, for we are His children, the children of The Most High! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/17- “Our Love For Papa God And Our Love For Fellow Believers, Must Be Synonymous!” (1 John 4:21)

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: 01/17- “Our Love For Papa God And Our Love For Fellow Believers, Must Be Synonymous!” (1 John 4:21)

Premise Question: Tell me again, why is this command, so vitally critical and most important to accept, understand, come into agreement with and into complete compliance?

And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister. (‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭21‬ NIV)

This vital and most critically important command, that Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, has given to each and every member of The Company of The Redeemed is: Anyone, meaning everyone, without exception, who says they love Papa God, must also, with the same love, express, show and have love towards each and every member of The Company of The Redeemed, their fellow believers. (1 John 4:21 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Love for our fellow believers, which are our most precious and dearly beloved brothers and sisters, must be one and the same, without exception, as it is for our Papa God, Whom personally implemented this divine rule, that must be followed, with strict adherence and full compliance. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/03- “Give Anonymously, Without Notice, Fanfare Or Memorial!” (Matthew6:3-4)

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: 01/03- “Give Anonymously, Without Notice, Fanfare Or Memorial!” (Matthew 6:3-4)

Premise Question: Why is it so important, when presented with opportunities of being generous towards others, with doing good deeds or providing for them, in their financial needs, to give your generous gift anonymously, without recognition, fanfare or memorializing it?

“But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.‭‭” (Matthew‬ ‭6:3-4 NLT)

So when, not if, but when, you are presented with opportunities to be gracious and generous, either by doing a good deed for someone or, by giving generously to those with dire financial needs; do it completely anonymously, with a heart of gratitude, without any expectation of recognition or receiving anything in return. This way, then, Your Heavenly Father—Papa God, who sees everything, for nothing is, nor can ever be hidden from Him, will reward you with His great generosity. (Matthew 6:3-4 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The LORD asks, expects and even requires us to give generously to those in need! But, not without rewarding us with His generosity, if, (big if) we will do it in the way He has prescribed us to give! There’s a very good reason why He has said, “it’s more blessed to give, than to receive.” It’s because, in reality, the giver, in supplying the gift, that satisfies the need of the one in need, gets the greater blessing! Why is that the case, you may ask? It is because it comes directly from Papa God Himself! Otherwise, though, if we seek recognition, commendation or reward from anyone other than Papa God, then, whatever we receive from them, that becomes our total reward. He will not, then, reward us with His generosity, because we’ve already been recognized and rewarded by others. So, our gracious generosity, that should be shown, by our good deeds done for others and our generous giving to those with needs, really only needs to be seen by Papa God, for to be seen by Him, is all the recognition, commendation and memorial, that we should ever seek, desire or expect, and, in fact, all that we’ll truly ever really need! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/04/15- “Every Knee, Every Tongue Of Everyone!” (Romans 14:11)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/04/15- “Every Knee, Every Tongue Of Everyone!” (Romans 14:11)

Premise Question: Do we, as The Company of The Redeemed, being the very bride and living body of Christ, which is divinely called and commanded to share and show the love of Papa God, with and towards one another, our neighbors, and are also commissioned to share the message of The Good News, with the rest of humankind; do we fully accept and realize that each one of us will personally stand before The LORD to give an account of our own selves, not others, and that, we are therefore, not to be critical or condemning of others, as they too, will also have to stand before The LORD and give an account of themselves, as well?

“For the Scriptures say, “‘As surely as I live,’ says the LORD, ‘every knee will bend to me, and every tongue will declare allegiance to God. ’”
(‭‭Romans‬ ‭14:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

“As has been recorded, in Papa God’s Holy Writ, by the prophet Isaiah, having personally received what was written down, directly from The LORD God Almighty’s mouth, as His very own sworn statement; therefore, it shall not return to Him, without being fulfilled; “‘it is without dispute, I Am has always existed, I Am is existing now, I Am will forever exist without end’ says the Great I Am, the creator of Heaven and earth and everything therein, ‘I Am declares and swears upon My own eternal existence, that every knee of every person, from every nation, will bow down in worship before Me; and with their mouths they shall acknowledge Me as The Great I Am, giving all glory, honor and praise, in spiritual worship, that’s due only Me.’”Romans 14:11 PDCP)

Bottom Line: I love how the Apostle Paul prefaces this quote from the Prophet Isaiah with some very important instructions to all of those who are believers, he writes: be accepting of those that are weak and who, perhaps don’t see the Scriptures in the exact same way and manner that you do—don’t get into fruitless arguments— don’t condemn or look down on your fellow believers, The LORD’S servants, as it is not within your purview to do so, but is, absolutely, The LORD’S prerogative—don’t focus on the foods you or others eat—also don’t make the day you choose or others choose to worship The LORD to become an issue—do though, set aside and choose a day to honor and worship The LORD—whether you live or die, do it in such a way, that it will bring honor and glory to The LORD—remembering that we don’t live or die for ourselves, but for The LORD! Finally, every member of The Company of The Redeemed will one day stand before The LORD to give a personal account, and then, with the help of The LORD, receive His approval and shall bow before Him on bended knee and there proclaim and declare, with their tongues, their undying allegiance, with grateful hearts of thanksgiving, how great and awesome Papa God is, The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, The Redeeming Savior and King over everything and everyone! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/02/15- “We Find Refreshing Rest In Him!” (Psalms 46:10)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/02/15- “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 chaos and great turmoil! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/08/15- “Make Sure You Are Ready And Equipped!” (1 Peter 3:14b-15)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/08/15- “Make Sure You Are Ready And Equipped!” (1 Peter 3:14b-15)

Premise Question: Why is it so vitally important, with tremendous significance attached to it, that we, each and every member of The Company of The Redeemed, live our lives before others, without worry or fear, and that we are always, at the ready, equipped and fully prepared, to give a quick and cogent response to anyone who may ask us why we are so joyful and why we have such a hopeful outlook on life, now and even into the distant future?

“So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats. Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it.” (‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭3:14b-15‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Do not allow the threats being directed towards you, by your enemy, to foment worry and fear to the point of being frightened into a state of paralysis of thought and inactivity. Rather though, continue to trust The LORD for your safety, while acknowledging, with a Holy reverent worship, at the very core and the inmost part of your being, Jesus Christ, as LORD and Savior. On every occasion and circumstance, without exception, make sure you are ready, being properly prepared and thoroughly equipped, to deliver, in a cogent manner, a quick and simple, appropriate response and answer, to anyone, anywhere, anytime, all the time, to absolutely everyone, who may request of you a basis and justification for why you are so obviously filled with joy and such an expectant hope, for not only the here and now, but into the future, as well. Be very careful though, showing extreme consideration, remembering to be polite, gentle and kind, always showing the greatest amount of esteem, honor and respect towards them, while engaging and interacting with them. (1 Peter 3:14b-15 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The LORD has given us clear and concise instructions, commands, exhortations and encouragements, in His Word, to not be fearful, fretful, afraid, troubled, moved by threats, no matter the threat level, but to always stand firm, not wavering, upon our faith and trust that we’ve placed and fully surrendered to The LORD. And, that we are to not ever allow anything to dissuade, dismay or discourage us from doing the work of spreading the Good News, among and with those that we’re given the divine opportunity to do so; being ever ready, prepared and rehearsed, fully equipped, to share our own personal story, in a simple, quick, clear and concise, cogent way. We, as believers, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, should make it our priority to be able to answer cogently and explain quickly and simply, to anyone who may ask us why we are the way we are; which should absolutely be, full of joy, hope, compassion, generosity, patience, encouragement and refreshing to be around! Others should see us openly, unashamedly and unabashedly worshiping The LORD in every area and part of our lives; honoring Him above everything and all others. We should each, therefore, develop and hone our own convincing and believable personal story, (no embellishment needed or necessary, just the wonderful truth) of how we came to know and accept The LORD Jesus Christ into our lives; sharing who we were before we knew Him, explaining how, when and why we accepted Him as LORD and Savior and then, telling them, with enthusiasm, what has happened and transpired in our lives since we first believed and then, as a direct result, began to grow and flourish, maturing in our relationship with The LORD. Make sure you are ready, prepared and equipped, with the Good News and your own personal story, to give everyone, the reason why you are so hopeful and full of joy! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/26/15- “The Great I Am Is Always There!” (Isaiah 41:10)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/26/15- “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, 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 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! 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- 07/23/15- “Seek And Desire The Approval Of Papa God, Not Man’s!” (Matthew 6:1)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/23/15- “Seek And Desire The Approval Of Papa God, Not Man’s!” (Matthew 6:1)

Premise Question: Is the approval, admiration, applause and adulation of man worth the risk of loosing the recognition, ratification, rewards and recompense of The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, our Papa God?

““Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven.” (‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

We should be ever mindful, taking extreme caution and care, to not make it our habit or custom of openly putting on display, before others, our righteous practice of doing good deeds, our generosity and acts of kindness, shown on every occasion, with the expressed intent, desire and purpose of being recognized, seen and acknowledged by others for them. If we so choose to practice our righteous conduct before others, in this manner, then we will not receive our just reward and recompense; that of being recognized and acknowledged by The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, our Creator and Papa God, who lives and rules from His Heavenly abode. It should be our greatest desire, in this life, to always honor and please only Him, in everything we do and say. (Matthew 6:1 PDCP)

Bottom Line: NOPE! The approval, admiration, applause and adulation of man cannot and will not ever begin to compare to the recognition, ratification, rewards and recompense of The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, our Papa God!!! For man’s expressions of praise and approval is temporary and fickle at best; while being commended, recognized and rewarded by Papa God is intrinsic, ever faithful and true, as it is everlasting and eternal. Case in point: “For since the world began, no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like you, who works for those who wait for him!” (‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭64:4‬ ‭NLT‬‬) And: (“That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”
(1 Corinthians‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬) May we never succumb, for any rhyme or reason, to the temptation and scenario that Esau, the twin brother of Jacob, where he exchanged his inheritance and eternal rewards of great blessings for the satisfaction of a temporary need and condition! Don’t ever choose to exchange the intrinsic for the temporal, for one lasts forever and the other soon fades away into nothingness! Therefore, always choose to seek and desire the approval and recognition of Papa God, not man’s! Blessings…
