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

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/30- “We are Papa God’s Incredible Handiwork—His Masterpiece!” (Ephesians 2:10)

Premise Question: What is Papa God’s, perfectly designed, divine plan, purpose and will for all of humankind?

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

The art and incredible skill it took to make us what we are, a unique, one of a kind creation, is beyond our comprehension, for we are wonderfully shaped, by the work of Papa God’s hands, brought into being out of His own imaginative design, made new in Christ, in order to perform honorable, virtuous, worthy of excellence, righteous good works; which by the way, was already in Papa God’s prepared plan for us, as believers, well in advance and even before we were saved, or perhaps, yet even before we were born into this world, so as, to carry out and do, by fulfilling and bringing to complete fruition, His ultimate divine purpose and plan of reconciliation for all of humankind! (Ephesians 2:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Papa God’s perfectly designed, divine plan and purpose was to ultimately bring all of humankind, whosoever will, of His greatly beloved and most cherished part of all of His creation, back into right standing and intimate fellowship, in an honorable and beautiful relationship with Him—Papa God and His Son Jesus Christ—The Creator of Heaven and earth, humankind and everything therein; and to also do His good work and will, by fulfilling His divinely designed, perfect will, holy purpose and ultimate plan!

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

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

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

Premise Question: Should we, with a great sense of urgency, GO or should we just stay put, sit idly by, while patiently waiting for the world to somehow find their way, on their own, to our, The Church’s, front door?

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.”‭‭ (Matthew‬ ‭28:19‬ ‭NLT)

Therefore, because all authority in Heaven and on earth has been given to Me, The LORD Jesus Christ, I now command you, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, to not sit idly by, waiting for the world to come to you, but to make haste and quickly go out into the world, with urgency, raising up authentic followers, from every people group, everywhere in the world, training them in righteousness, teaching them The Truth, mentoring and nourishing them to maturity and baptizing them, by immersion, into the great Company of The Redeemed, in the name of The Holy Father and of His Only Son, Jesus Christ, our LORD and Savior and of The Holy Spirit, The One who comforts, guides and empowers you to do this divine work of The Most High. (Matthew 28:19 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The only time we are to stay, is to stay in The LORD’s presence and will, in order to fulfill His purpose!

The only time we are to wait, is to wait upon The LORD, in order to be endued with His efficacious power, so that, we can do and accomplish the divine work of The LORD!

Within the message of the Great Commission, you won’t find the concept, “If You Build It, They Will Come,” rather, what you specifically do find is a resounding urgent command of “GO!”

Unfortunately though, in some instances and cases, it would seem, The Church has either forgotten or completely neglected the “GO” part of the Great Commission, and perhaps, has adopted the concept of “If You Build It, (stay put and then just wait patiently) They Will Come” mentality; thereby, staying put, sitting idly by, while waiting patiently, for the Nations (people groups) of the world to come on their own initiative and somehow find their way to the front door of The Church, rather than, The Church being specifically called, commissioned and commanded, to be compelled, with a great sense of urgency and compassion, to “GO” to the Nations, building roads and paths, through right relationships and service, that will effectively reach out to them, connecting The Church to them exactly where they are; thus, fulfilling Papa God’s Great Commission! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/26- “Let The Jubilant And Rapturous Celebration Of Great Rejoicing Ensue!” (Luke 2:20)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/26- “Let The Jubilant And Rapturous Celebration Of Great Rejoicing Ensue!” (Luke 2:20)

Premise Question: What is it time to say and do and who do we tell?

“The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. It was just as the angel had told them.”
(‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:20‬ ‭NLT‬)

The shepherds, being completely overwhelmed with rapturous joy and excitement, after not only hearing, with their own ears, the wonderful Good News, but then, having what they had just heard actually confirmed, with the incredible experience of seeing it, with their own eyes, exactly, as it had been described to them, by the angel of The LORD, even down to the smallest detail; all of this was much more than they could ever try to contain within themselves, so, upon the return to their sheep, everyone they saw along the way, they weren’t able to be reserved or hold back from glorifying and praising The LORD GOD Almighty and telling them all about the magnificently wondrous, miraculous miracle of glad tidings of great joy, the Good News for all of humankind, that they had just personally witnessed. (Luke 2:20 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Have you ever been too excited to sleep or eat or unable to sit or stand still for even a moment, because of the overwhelming anticipation and expectation of joy building up inside you and that you are experiencing due to having some insight and incredible knowledge of something really good that’s either about to happen or has already happened? What you know and what you are feeling is too wonderful to keep to yourself! You can’t hold or contain it within yourself! You’ve just got to tell someone, call someone, see someone, show someone, anyone or everyone about the Good News of what has happened or is about to happen! It may even have an affect on you of causing you to break out in dance, burst out laughing or to begin to sing uncontrollably, with rapturous joy, for you just can’t keep it inside yourself, as you are unable to contain or control it, you just can’t help it! Nothing is going to stop, delay or hinder you from immediately beginning to tell somebody, probably everybody you come in contact with or have opportunity to tell!

Perhaps, that’s what was going on with the shepherds, with regards to the news they had just received, seen and heard.

We too, have experienced and been given the same Good News! So, let us, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, do the same as the shepherds were compelled and overwhelmed with joy to do!

It’s time to let the jubilant and rapturous celebration of great rejoicing ensue and to “start spreading the news,” by beginning to tell everyone everywhere about The Good News of great joy and perfect peace for all of humankind! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/24- “The Great And Wonderful Announcement Of Good News!” (Luke 2:13-14)

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

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/24- “The Great And Wonderful Announcement Of Good News!” (Luke 2:13-14)

Premise Question: What are we, The Great and August Company of The Redeemed, to do with this most wonderful and gloriously great announcement, of the greatest and best, Good News, of all time, for all of humankind?

“Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God and saying, “Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”” (‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:13-14‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Without warning, and out of nowhere, came an unexpected addition to the already heart pounding, adrenalin rushing, wondrous and gloriously terrifying occasion, that the shepherds were in the midst of experiencing; for now, along with the appearance of the angel of The LORD, came the appearance of an overwhelmingly impressive and quite large, company of the angel armies of The Heavenly Host, praising and worshipping The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, while at the same time and at that very moment, announcing this great and glorious Good News to all of humankind: “All glory and honor to The Most High in the highest Heaven, and peace to all those on earth who are pleasing to Him, for The LORD’s favor and goodwill shall be upon them.” (Luke 2:13-14 PDCP)

Bottom Line: As the great company, of the angel armies of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, made the most amazing and incredible announcement, on behalf of Papa God, of this wonderful and greatest of all time Good News to the shepherds first, who were watching over their flocks of sheep in the fields that momentous and glorious night, and while they, the angel armies were worshiping and praising The LORD GOD Almighty, as the shepherds who were in the fields that night received the Good News, with great rejoicing, and then, verifying this wonderful announcement of The Good News, by going and seeing for themselves, (The Babe wrapped in strips of clothing and lying in a feeding trough) and then, proceeded quickly and immediately, with a great sense of divine purpose and urgency, as they began spreading the wonderful and gloriously great Good News far and wide; so too, should we, The Great and August company of The Redeemed, rejoice greatly, because of the wonderful and greatest Good News of all time, that was delivered first to the shepherds, then, to all of humankind, with worshiping and exuberant praise offered unto The LORD GOD Almighty, with the same sense of divine purpose and great urgency, determination and diligence, sharing this Good News far and wide, with everyone everywhere! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/23- “It’s Registration Time—So Make Room In Your Heart!” (Luke 2:6-7)

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: 12/23- “It’s Registration Time—So Make Room In Your Heart!” (Luke 2:6-7)

Premise Question: How does one register, in order to then be counted in the census of The LORD GOD Almighty, and, have you personally registered yet?

“And while they were there, the time came for her baby to be born. She gave birth to her first child, a son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.”
(‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:6-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

On the night of Mary and Joseph’s arrival into Bethlehem, the City of David, for the specific purpose of registering for the census, they were unable to secure appropriate lodging, as there was not a room or quarters available anywhere in the city to be had. And so, because Mary was very close to the time of her delivery, they were compelled to take what was left; which was a small stall in a stable, but it would have to suffice, on this wondrous and most glorious night. Sometime during this night, Mary went into labor and thus, brought forth into the world her firstborn, a son. She then carefully wrapped him up, tight and secure, in strips of clothing and then gently and lovingly laid him in a animal feeding trough, just inside the stall. (Luke 2:6-7 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Registration is now open and upon us all! It’s time for each of us to make room in our hearts and lives for “The Bread of Life,” The Savior of humankind, to come and reside within the within of our innermost beings.

After all, the first place He was lain, immediately after His glorious and wondrous birth, was in a manger; which of course, is a common feeding trough.

Perhaps Papa God was sending a message to everyone everywhere, even then, there in the very beginning, that all should come and partake of “The Bread of Life,” who came to bring redemption, salvation and new life to all who will believe and receive, by simply calling upon The Name of The LORD—The Savior of humankind—Jesus Christ, The Messiah and King!

Something for each and everyone of us to sincerely consider during this busy season. It’s registration time, so let’s not miss out on this wonderful and most glorious opportunity to make room in our hearts for The King of kings—Jesus Christ, The Savior of humankind. Blessings…

INDENTURED AND WITH CRUSHING INDEBTEDNESS…Repost

Held captive, as an indentured bond slave,
without any capacity or ability to repay
the suffocating and cruel crushing indebtedness required of us to pay
for our liberty, so that, we may live our lives in freedom and peace;
He, The LORD, comes to our rescue and defense,
as our benefactor, our liberator and redeemer,
He sets us free from the indentureship of bondage,
completely and fully satisfying our overwhelming onerous indebtedness.
All thanks and praise to The One True God,
The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty,
His name is Jesus Christ, The Savior of humanity…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/12- “Finish Strong—Complete Your Divine Assignment!” (Acts 20:24)

Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/12- “Finish Strong—Complete Your Divine Assignment!” (Acts 20:24)

Premise Question: What should be the most important aspect and factor of completing the divine assignment given to us, by The LORD Himself?

“But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.”‭‭ (Acts ‭20:24‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Notwithstanding, it matters very little to me, with regard to what may or may not happen to me personally, for I deem and recognize that my existence has very little value or usefulness, except, for only one reason and divine purpose, that of being entirely spent on what is most important to me, being my greatest aspiration; which is, to wrap-up and complete with a flourish, my life’s only ambition, the great undertaking, that The LORD Jesus Christ personally charged and assigned me with, entrusting to me the divine assignment of His divine purpose of announcing, with huge fanfare, a declaration of the “best and greatest news” humankind has ever or would ever receive, telling everyone that I have the honored privilege of coming in contact or have opportunity to interact with, have influence on, or in some way, might impact, of the incomparable and wonderful Good News of Papa God’s unfailing, extravagantly gracious, loving kindness. ( Acts 20:24 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, should make it our ultimate goal and aim in life to finish strong, by completing the divinely assigned task of the “Great Commission,” that has been entrusted to each one of us, by The LORD Jesus Christ Himself; which of course is, telling everyone, everywhere, as we have opportunity, of Papa God’s great love, magnificent mercy and His wonderful saving grace.

The Apostle Paul tells us that he gave his all, spent his all and became all he ever needed to become, in order to have the best and blest opportunity of reaching out to everyone, everywhere, no matter who they were or from whence they came, so that, perhaps, they might respond to the Good News and be eternally saved!

The famous 19th century evangelist and teacher, D. L. Moody, had his own unique experience of not giving an opportunity to those who had attended his meeting one night, to respond to the message of the Good News and it was later that night, that the conflagration that is known as the Chicago Fire, broke out, with many perishing that night in the fire. It has been purported that of those that died in the fire that frightful night, many had been in D. L. Moody’s meeting earlier that night. It had such an impact upon the evangelist that he vowed to not ever close another meeting without giving a clear and strong presentation of the Good News to those in attendance, by granting them an opportunity to be forever changed now and for eternity by the power and presence of a loving, most merciful and gracious Papa God, through His Son, The LORD and Savior of humankind—Jesus Christ.

One of my favorite quotes, attributed to D. L. Moody is: “No man (one) ever sent by God is a failure!” The message that I’ve always taken from this quote is, no matter the outcome or results of whatever we do or wherever we may go, the most important aspect and what factors most, is that we have answered and been obedient to the call to go and faithfully finish strong, by completing the task and divine assignment given to us; therefore, we should and most necessarily leave the outcome and results to The LORD! Blessings…
