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.

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/02- “We Are Papa God’s Masterpiece—Saved By Grace—Created To Do Good Works!” (Ephesians 2:8-10)

Premise Question: How did you become a legitimate member of The Company of The Redeemed, who are you, as a member of the Company of The Redeemed, and what are you to be doing, as a member of The Company of The Redeemed?

“God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. 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 ‭2:8-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

For it is only because of Papa God’s unmerited favor, kindness and great love shown towards you, that you’ve been rescued and redeemed from certain death, becoming an accepted and recognized member, in right standing, in The Company of The Redeemed; and this, through your personal confession of faith and belief in His Son, Jesus Christ, when you placed your complete trust and reliance on Him. And even then, it’s not based on anything that’s been generated by your good behavior, actions or deeds, for there’s not any sort of effort, work accomplishment or achievement, that you can do or attempt to do, that will ever suffice; as it is indeed, solely based entirely upon His love for you and His free merciful gift of salvation, provided by and through the mighty works of Papa God Himself and His Son. He’s done it in this way, so that there wouldn’t ever be any personal aggrandizement to be claimed by anyone; for there’s no boasting allowed, except in The LORD and what He has done. For we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, are the unique and perfectly designed masterpiece, created by the hands of the Master Himself, our Papa God Almighty in Heaven, brought forth out of darkness and renewed by His Son—Jesus Christ, for the purpose of doing His divine works of righteousness; that Papa God had in His mind, already prepared in waiting, for each of us to do, long before we were even members of The Company of The Redeemed. (Ephesians 2:8-10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: You are saved by grace, through your faith, but not on your own, for it is a gift that comes only from Papa God—The Heavenly Father; which can’t be earned or bought, but should be sought, so that you’ll be caught, to then be taught, in order, to do and accomplish, with The LORD’s help, the divine work, will and purpose, that’s been prepared and is ready in waiting, for you to begin to do. So, without delay, let’s get busy, and begin, with great diligence and devotion get to work! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/14- “Papa God’s Plans For You!”(Jeremiah 29:11)

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: 11/14- “Papa God’s Plans For You!”(Jeremiah 29:11)

Premise Question: As a believer, just how excited, encouraged, enthralled, enlivened and even emboldened, can and should one be, with such a wonderfully comforting, and completely assuring, prognostication?

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
(‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

For I, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, am not in the dark, ill prepared nor unaware, when it comes to knowing what My future plans entail for your life. Therefore, I, The LORD, emphatically affirm and declare, making it a certainty, with this pronouncement, that my blueprint for your life will be carried out to fruition; which is, to assure your success in seeing that you flourish in the place that I’ve planted you, and that, without suffering loss or injury. Furthermore, My blueprint for you shall bring an expectant hope, that will not fail or disappoint you, but shall, with confidence and full assurance, restore unto you a bright future, filled with many wonderful prospects and satisfying rewards. (Jeremiah 29:11 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Now, before someone gets their dander up, about personalizing the principles and promises of this scripture, spoken to a specific people for a specific time, there are plenty of other examples in scripture which clearly delineate Papa God’s wonderfully gracious and glorious plans for His children’s future.

So, how excited should and can we be? Extremely exhilarated, with an exaggerated, exuberant explosion, of joyful expressions of praise, worship and thanksgiving! F.U.T.U.R.E.- Finally Understand That U R Eternal! Accept it! Rejoice in it! Share it with others!

Upon further review, check these scrips out…(Hebrews 2:5, Romans 8:17,18,19,23, Ephesians 4:4) Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: (A) PDCP- 10/29- “Our Boasting Should Never Be In Or About Ourselves, But Only In And About God And God Alone!” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

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: (A) 10/29- “Our Boasting Should Never Be In Or About Ourselves, But Only In And About God And God Alone!” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Premise Question: Concerning the provision of our freedom, our redemption, new life and our eternal salvation, is it ever appropriate to boast in or about anything or anyone, other than Papa God and His Only Son Jesus Christ?

“God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.” (‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:8-9‬ ‭NLT)

For it is only because of Papa God’s unmerited favor, His loving kindness and His unfailing great love shown towards you, that you’ve been rescued and redeemed from certain death, becoming righteous members, in right standing, in The Company of The Redeemed; and this, because of your personal confession of faith and belief in His Son—Jesus Christ, when you placed your complete trust and reliance on and in Him. And even then, it’s not based on anything that’s been generated by your best behavior, significantly important actions or your good deeds; for there’s not any sort of effort, work or accomplishment that you can do or attempt to do, that will suffice; as it is indeed solely based entirely upon His love for you and His free merciful gift of salvation, provided by and through the mighty works of Papa God Himself and His Son. Papa God has done it in this way and manner, so that, there wouldn’t ever be any personal aggrandizement, by anyone; for when it comes to our salvation, there’s no boasting allowed, except in The LORD GOD Almighty, and what He has done for each one of us! (Ephesians 2:8-9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: When it comes right down to it, unless we are willing to truthfully address, consider or speak about the only reason we have our freedom, redemption, new life and eternal salvation, we will be forever lost!

For we must first come into the full realization, complete acceptance and ultimate understanding, that, as far as there being anything or something that we can effectively do, be, say, earn or ever deserve, or even that we personally could ever have anything to do with, have any real bearing on, or whether or not we can achieve it on our own, or that somehow, someway, perhaps we may possibly have the innate ability to be redeemed and rescued from certain death and being eternally separated from the eternal presence of Papa God and His Son, our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ, on our own and outside of the only way that Papa God has offered and provided for all of us; then unfortunately, we would be woefully misguided and sadly mistaken!

In essence, essentially all that we can do, is to acquiesce, assent, concur, consent and come into agreement with, Papa God’s divine purpose and will for our lives.

So, no! No one can do it on their own, as everyone is completely dependent upon Papa God’s love, mercy and grace for salvation; therefore, it is not ever appropriate for anyone of us to boast about anyone or anything, other than boasting about what Papa God and His Only Son Jesus Christ has done for us, in rescuing and redeeming us from certain death, eternal damnation and punishment without end!

Thank You Papa God, that at the very moment we first confessed with our mouths and believed in our hearts, that Jesus Christ is LORD, by calling upon His Name for deliverance from our own sin and the darkness, and evil one of this world; that it is at that very moment, that salvation, eternal life, redemption and freedom became ours forevermore.

For The Light of the world, in the person and presence of The Spirit of The LORD, comes to live in each one, by taking up personal residence, to forever dwell, deep within the within of each our innermost beings, even our hearts!

Remember, no matter what we can spectacularly ever do, be or accomplish in or with our lives, in this life, it will still only ever be nothing but dirty laundry; stained and soiled with our guilty sin and shame!

Only Papa God, through the efficacious shed blood of His Son, can completely cleanse and remove all the guilty sin, stains and shame from our lives. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: (B) 10/29- “We are Papa God’s Incredible Handiwork—His Superb Masterpiece!” (Ephesians 2:10)

Premise Question: What is Papa God’s perfectly designed plan, His divine purpose and wonderful 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 skill it took to make us what we are, which is, a unique, one of a kind creation, is beyond our comprehension. For we are wonderfully shaped by the work of Papa God’s own hands, brought into being out of His own imaginative design, made brand 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 mind, as His divinely inspired prepared plan for His own—all of us who are believers, well in advance and even before we were saved or perhaps yet even born into this world, so as, to carry out and do, by bringing to fruition, His ultimate divine purpose and perfect plan of reconciliation for all of humankind! (Ephesians 2:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: To ultimately bring all of humankind, whosoever will, back into right standing and close intimate fellowship, in an honorable and beautiful, satisfying and completely fulfilling 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 that was already prepared long ago, even before we existed! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/17- “Christmas In The Fall—An Announcement For All Of Humankind—God Is With Us!” (Matthew 1:23)

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: 10/17- “Christmas In The Fall—An Announcement For All Of Humankind—God Is With Us!” (Matthew 1:23)

Premise Question: How and why is the announcement of The Anointed and Promised One of Papa God, through the prophet Isaiah, some 600 years before the conception and birth of Jesus Christ, (delivered to the world through a virgin and by The Holy Spirit) so importantly significant and is such great news, still today, even after more than 2000 years later?

“Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’” (‭‭Matthew‬ ‭1:23‬ ‭NLT‬)

“Listen up! Look here! Take immediate notice! Pay very close attention, one and all! Right here’s the nascent announcement, of the fulfillment and delivery, of the promise of The LORD GOD Almighty, for all of humankind to observe and receive joyfully, as the only real truth: A pure and undefiled virgin shall apprehend the promise of Papa God, by The Holy Spirit, and shall bring forth a Son—The Anointed and Promised One, and Joseph and Mary shall give Him His Name, calling Him Immanuel, which is the greatest of all news ever, for all of humankind, because His Name literally means ‘God is with us;’ in essence, The Creator of the heavens and the earth, as well as everything therein, is personally living and dwelling within us, in our very midst, as His abode.” (Matthew 1:23 PDCP)

Bottom Line: How and why it is still significantly important more than 2600 years after it was first announced by Papa God through the prophet Isaiah, and even to this very day and time, continues to have such an enormous impact upon all of humankind, as being, still, the greatest news of all time, for all of humankind, is because the Faithful and True promise of The Holy One, not only came to pass in the exact way and manner it was prophesied to do so, in every intricately complex, minute and great detail way, some 2000 years ago, but also because, the message that was promised, given, announced and then delivered, has not ever been, is not and shall not ever be diminished in any way, shape, form or capacity, and shall therefore, still continue to carry the same humongous weight and glory it always has; not ever losing any of its influence or power to change and transform the sinful heart of humankind, than when it was first announced!

For Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever! He has not changed and will not ever change, as He remains the same, down through the ages, as The Rock of all ages, even through out all of eternity, everlasting to everlasting!

He has made a sure and certain promise that He is and shall continue to fulfill and keep, as His Word is His bond, which is, that He will never leave, forsake nor abandon His own, and we are His very own—His dearly beloved children.

How about we all have some joyous Christmas celebrations this fall, after all, because of what Papa God did and accomplished, for each of us, by removing all of the repercussions of humankind’s fall, and has by His Spirit and through His Only Son, The Anointed and Promised One, has now reconciled us back to Him who is Just, Right and Holy—The Great I Am!

People of The LORD GOD Almighty everywhere! It’s time to give thanks, to rejoice, to worship and adore and to celebrate! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/27- “Papa God’s Spirit Lives Inside Us!” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

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: 09/27- “Papa God’s Spirit Lives Inside Us!”
(1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

Premise Question: Having this indisputable knowledge of our miraculous transformation, of knowing that The Spirit of The Most High lives and dwells inside all of us who’ve called upon The Name of The LORD, because of the revealed truth in Papa God’s Holy Writ—The Scriptures; why does it seem and appear, at times, that some of us, in The Company of The Redeemed, act and comport ourselves as if we are completely unaware of and totally oblivious too, this established, verifiable fact, and most glorious obvious truth?

“Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.”
(‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭6:19-20‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Are you still yet unaware, of the miraculous transformation that has occurred inside your body; that of you becoming the very dwelling place of The Spirit of The Most High, who is The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, from Whom you have obtained this marvelous miracle of His very presence taking up residence inside of you? Therefore, you are no longer on your own, hopelessly lost, destitute and without a promising future, but you have been purchased, at a great cost to Papa God Himself; for He has redeemed you, to become His very own, by and through the sacrifice of The Lamb of God, His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ. Now, since this is the case, (reality) the more prudent way, with the greatest benefits and blessings, is to always choose to give due reverence and proper respect, to The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, by honoring Him in your bodies. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Many of us, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, perhaps, really need to have a reminder wake up call, to the actual reality of, that it is the actual Spirit of The Living God, The Holy Spirit of The Most High, that has now taken up residence, within the within, of the innermost part of every one of us who have called upon The Name of The LORD for personal salvation. In essence, each of our bodies have now become a holy temple and the very dwelling place of Papa God’s Spirit!

So, once we’ve truly come to the full realization of this truth, which is the absolutely incredible, being the most miraculous and marvelous transformation that could ever take place in any person’s life, we should make sure to always honor the presence of The LORD’s Spirit living and dwelling inside of us; by keeping our bodies clean and pure, by staying away from partaking of or participating in, anything that would sully or defile our body, which is the very temple of Papa God’s Spirit.

Nor should we ever diminish our testimony or reputation, by giving our bodies over to sinful practices and behaviors, and thereby, end up grieving and hurting Papa God’s Spirit and His reputation and testimony among humankind.

None of us should ever try to manage, escape or circumvent the knowledge of this wonderful truth! What we should do, though, is avoid, no matter the cost, from ever giving in to our base nature and acting as if we are ignorant and unaware of the tremendous high cost that was expended on our behalf, by Papa God!

Therefore, recognize who you are and who it is that is living inside of you, and then, honor Him always, in and with your body, at all times, on all occasions and in every situation and circumstance you may encounter or go through in this life!

Please remember, the repercussions from not recognizing and honoring this truth and The LORD, will never be worth it, very pleasant, nor will it ever produce any good thing! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/22- “Listen And Live—Accept And Win!” (Proverbs 19:20-21)

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: 09/22- “Listen And Live—Accept And Win!” (Proverbs 19:20-21)

Premise Question: Have you ever heard or thought of something as absurd as; there is such a thing as receiving too much divine wisdom, counsel and instruction during one’s life?

“Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life. You can make many plans, but the LORD’s purpose will prevail.”
(‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭19:20-21‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Pay close attention, giving it your highest priority, with resolute regard, to the wise counsel and admonitions of The LORD. Willingly accept and endure, agreeing and complying completely, with His purifying chastening of you, as He administers His correction to perfection, with divine instruction; so that, when the final curtain falls, at the cessation of time, you shall be included in the number of those who are known to be a part of the insightful, discerning and wise. There are a wealth, a veritable cornucopia, of dreams, desires, schemes, with deliberate and thoughtful plans, in the heart of every individual child, woman or man; but it is always going to be The LORD GOD Almighty’s intentional, divine ideal purpose and aim, that will triumph, conquer and ultimately win. (Proverbs 19:20-21 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The premise may be out there somewhere in the world, that one can be too wise or over qualified and trained, or even so heavenly minded that they are no earthly good! But it has little value, carries even less weight and lacks any real credibility or evidence, to actually be true. There really is no such thing as being someone being so heavenly minded, that they are no earthly good!

Being completely or even over prepared is not ever going to be a hindrance or weakness. But, being ill prepared, on the other hand, is short sighted, ill advised and is definitely a liability that can be extremely detrimental.

Was Jesus so heavenly minded that He was no earthly good? I think and definitely know that not to be the case! For the Scriptures say that we are to have the mind of Christ! Therefore, we should always continue to strive to grow in the wisdom and knowledge of The LORD.

It is requisite for each of us to pursue The LORD’s perfect wisdom, by continually giving ourselves over to being instructed and trained in righteousness, with Papa God’s Word as our textbook and foundation and the Holy Spirit as our spiritual teacher, counselor, mentor and guide, in this life.

For it is then and only then, that Papa God’s divine will, plan and purpose for our lives will ultimately prevail, with us being the wonderfully blessed beneficiaries and hugely big winners!

Remember, we are never too old, too wise or too learned, to continue to be able to learn and grow! Listen And Live—Accept And Win! 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)

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: 09/15- “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! Blessings…
