SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 03/14- “The Good Work!” (Philippians 1:6)

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: 03/14- “The Good Work!” (Philippians 1:6)

Premise Question: What is “The Good Work” that Papa God has begun and will absolutely complete in those of us who’ve believed in Him?

And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. (‭Philippians‬ ‭1‬:‭6‬ NLT)

For it is an established, as well as, being a verifiable and an incontrovertible, completely reliable fact, that the good work that was initially started in you, by none other than Papa God Himself, when you first believed; will continue to perpetually develop and grow within you, not stopping, until He fully finishes the good work of making you perfect and complete, lacking nothing, which culminates on the day The LORD, Jesus Christ, returns for His own. (Philippians 1:6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: “The Good Work” is the work of redemption, salvation and eternal life! The beginning is at Regeneration, where our spirit was dead, in its transgressions and sins, but because of the work of The LORD, now we can be born again, by our spirit coming to life, through the Regeneration of The Holy Spirit within us. So, in the Regeneration of the spirit, we are saved!
(John 3:1-3) ” You must be born again!” Our spirit is dead because of sin! Our spirit is reborn through Regeneration!

The next part of continuing “The Good Work” is: the process of Sanctification, of the soul, in which, we are being saved! (Philippians 2:12-13) A work in progress for us, but that was accomplished and finished on the cross! Each day we must confront ourselves and choose to die to self, with a reverential awe and holy fear, for The LORD! It absolutely is a humongous battle, but with Papa God’s help, we shall, ultimately, win the war!

“The Good Work” culminates with: The Glorification of the body, in which, we will be saved! (1 John 3:1-3) We may not completely comprehend or fully understand now what we will become, but when we see Him, all will become clear and totally understood, because we will literally be just like Him!

One more word in this little teaching—Justification, for it’s the only reason why we are able to experience Regeneration, Sanctification and Glorification! It’s all because of His great love for us, because of what He accomplished on the cross and His Resurrection and victory over sin, death, hell and the grave!

He became the Atonement for everyone, thereby, justifying all those who will put their trust and hope in Him, meaning that everyone who does, it will be just as if they had never sinned! Wow! Now that is a thorough and complete “Good Work”—Justification! (Romans 8:30-39)

The LORD Jesus Christ has truly provided our escape from eternal death for our total being, spirit, soul and body! Thanks be to Papa God for His incredible Gift! (1Thessalonians 5:23-24) He is faithful and He will complete “The Good Work” that He has begun within each one of us! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/07- “Don’t Ever Keep The Light That You Are, Hidden Inside Your House, But Let It Shine Outside, As Well And Everywhere You Are And Wherever You Go!” (Matthew 5:16)

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: 01/07- “Don’t Ever Keep The Light That You Are, Hidden Inside Your House, But Let It Shine Outside, As Well And Everywhere You Are And Wherever You Go!” (Matthew 5:16)

Premise Question: When will we, all members of The Company Of The Redeemed, truly grasp and then fully comply with, the urgent exhortation and admonition that The LORD gives us in this scripture?

In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. (‭Matthew‬ ‭5‬:‭16‬ NLT)

So, in the same way and manner that a light, when lit and not hidden, lights a house, so should you be the light, that you are, shining bright, outside in the world that is dark; for you are not to be lit and hidden in a house, but lit in a way, so that everyone that’s in darkness, will be able to clearly see, by your love, good deeds and service shown towards others, the true light and hope of the world; and then, they will honor, worship and praise your most gracious and loving, heavenly Papa God. (Matthew 5:16 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Let us strongly consider then, that in the full light of this undeniable truth, it is we, who are suppose to be the light, shining bright, without any fear, but being intrepid, bold and courageous, in dispelling the darkness of this world! Therefore, for the sake of those who are lost in the darkness, of this world, and, for the sake of being “WOW” servants, that is, Willing, Obedient Workers, of the One True Light, Jesus Christ, let us, as His representatives and ambassadors, allow His light to shine through us brightly, everywhere we go, and let it be seen by everyone, in how we comport ourselves, in our actions, in our love shown towards each other and, in our love and service shown towards those who are in darkness, our fellow humankind. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/30/15- “We Are Papa God’s Incredible Handiwork—His Masterpiece!” (Ephesians 2:10)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/30/15- “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! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/25/15- “Hallelujah! It Really Did Happen!” (Isaiah 9:6)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/25/15- “Hallelujah! It Really Did Happen!” (Isaiah 9:6)

Premise Question: So, just what did really happen on that unique and oh so wonderful and most glorious night?

“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” ‭‭(Isaiah‬ ‭9:6‬ ‭NLT‬)

For The Immortal Divine Word of Papa God, became mortal, taking upon Himself the human form of flesh and blood, as The only begotten Son of The Sovereign LORD God Almighty’s provision to us; coming to earth, to dwell amongst humankind, as a humble servant, in order to carry the weight of the world’s transgressions upon His shoulders, ultimately becoming The Supreme Ruler of everything and everyone. And, He will have and be known by these magnificent names: The Wonderful Counselor, astonishing all of humanity with His awesome wisdom, guidance and great comfort; The Almighty God, for there is none that can be compared to His Omnipotence; The Everlasting Father, because He is eternal, without a beginning and without an end; The Prince of Peace, He, who becomes, is and shall forever be, The King of kings and LORD of Lords, establishing a Kingdom of Peace, for all of humankind, even into infinity and beyond. (Isaiah 9:6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The prophet Isaiah, who foretold of the birth of The Anointed One, somewhere in the neighborhood of about 700 years before the blessed event occurred, but is now, a historical fact, accepted and believed by the multiplied multitudes of The Company of The Redeemed, some 2000 plus years beyond the blessed event that occurred on that extraordinarily unique, oh so wondrous and most glorious Holy Night, is now to be told by all members in good standing, of The Company of The Redeemed, to everyone everywhere in the world, this wonderful and glorious message of Good News, which is, “Hallelujah! Joy to the world, The LORD has come, let earth rejoice and receive her King!” Merry Christmas and blessings to all…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/23/15- “It’s Regestration Time, So Make Room In Your Heart!” (Luke 2:6-7)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/23/15- “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 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, whom came to bring redemption, salvation and new life to all who will believe and receive, by calling upon The Name of The LORD, The Savior of humankind, Jesus Christ, Messiah and King! Something for all of us to consider during this busy season…Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/22/15- “This Is How And Why Papa God Did It!” (1 John 4:9)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/22/15- “This Is How And Why Papa God Did It!” (1 John 4:9)

Premise Question: How can we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, truly express our sincere heartfelt appreciation, thankfulness and gratitude, towards Papa God, for what He has done for all those who believe, and call upon The Name of The LORD for salvation?

“God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him.” (‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

In this way and by this manner, Papa God chose to exhibit and put on display, for all of humanity to see, His unfailing love and great concern for humankind: He did this, by sending His One and Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, The Anointed Redeemer and Savior of the world, to live and dwell in the midst of us, for a specific, divine and glorious purpose, of a most merciful and gracious, full of loving kindness, Papa God, in order that each of us could then be presented with the vital and wonderful opportunity of being able to live ours lives honorably for Him, and that, for all of eternity, without end, in His glorious and everlasting presence. (1 John 4:9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We now, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, ought to authentically put on full display, His unfailing love, in and through our daily lives, with the spiritual and practical attributes of humility, grace, mercy and service, always being expressed with thankfulness and great appreciation to Him, Papa God, while also, being expressed with a sincere heartfelt gratitude and appreciation towards others. This is the way we can truly express and sincerely show our appreciation, thanks and gratitude, for all that Papa God has done for us! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/19/15- “God Is Personally With Us!” (Isaiah 7:14)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/19/15- “God Is Personally With Us!” (Isaiah 7:14)

Premise Question: What meaning does The Prophet Isaiah’s prophecy, concerning The Savior of humankind, have and hold for us today?

“All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’).” (‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭7:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

As a direct consequence of you, oh king Ahaz, being afraid to trust and try The LORD, per His direct request and command to you, and because you are also full of false humility, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty Himself will affix His personal signature to a confirming manifestation, a sign, with the message of redemption, for all people everywhere, thus, obligating Himself to fulfill it in this most spectacular and miraculous way: A young, undefiled, pure woman, having not yet been with a man, will become pregnant, without ever having been with a man, and she shall bring forth and deliver, by giving birth too, The Deliverer and Savior of humankind, for He is The Divine Immaculate only Son of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, and she will call Him by this Name, Immanuel, which means, God is personally with us. (Isaiah 7:14 PDCP)

Bottom Line: What the prophet Isaiah was prophesying and looking forward to, we now can look back to, as we are now given the opportunity to be able to personally experience everyday, the wonderful peace, the glorious manifestation and everlasting presence of The LORD Jesus Christ, The Redeemer of humankind, by and through The Spirit of Papa God Himself, being in our daily lives, and then, throughout all of eternity! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/13/15- “He, The LORD, Will Make You Strong!” (2 Corinthians 12:9)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/13/15- “He, The LORD, Will Make You Strong!” (2 Corinthians 12:9)

Premise Question: How often and when does The LORD GOD Almighty make us, His precious and beloved children, strong?

“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” (2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:9‬ ‭NLT‬)

But the magnificent and most merciful LORD GOD Almighty set me straight, with this greatly encouraging admonition: “My ever faithful, loving kindness is all that you will ever need, it will always suffice, for My efficacious ability to accomplish and fulfill My divine design, will and purpose for your life, becomes ideal and absolutely impeccable, when in your frailty, inadequacies, infirmities and afflictions, you choose to completely rely upon Me!” Now that, is the reason why I’m more than happy and joyful to speak, with excessive pride, in an exaggerated manner and grandiose fashion, about my inglorious inadequacies, frail infirmities and noisome afflictions; knowing full well that The LORD GOD Almighty Himself is empowering me to do all that He desires, fulfilling and accomplishing in me and through me, His divine design, purpose and will for my life and ultimately, all for His Glory. (2 Corinthians 12:9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: He does it always through His sufficient grace and by His power. For He, The LORD GOD Almighty, will always make us strong, in our weaknesses, as we choose to rely on His strength and not our own. Sometimes though, our own strengths can become our weaknesses, when we choose to rely on them, rather than relying upon The LORD’S strength and all sufficient grace. But, even still, in our own strength/weaknesses, when yielded to Him, He will make us strong! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/12/15- “Finish Strong, Complete Your Divine Assignment!” (Acts 20:24)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/12/15- “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 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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/10/15-“Jesus Christ, The One True Light Of The World!” (John 1:8)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/10/15- “Jesus Christ, The One True Light Of The World!” (John 1:8)

Premise Question: What is the divine calling, that each member of The Company of The Redeemed has now received from Papa God, in regards to The Light of the world?

“John himself was not the light; he was simply a witness to tell about the light.” (‭‭John‬ ‭1:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

The one known as John The Baptizer, was not The Anointed One who would come into the world as The One True Light and giver of new life; For John’s specific and divine calling, from Papa God, was to simply announce the Good News, to the world, as the foremost herald and ambassador, the expert witness, of The One True Light of the world. (John 1:8 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, have now been given the same divine calling that was given to John The Baptizer, which also comes from Papa God; and is, that we should all be heralds, ambassadors and expert witnesses, announcing and declaring to the whole world, vigorously and with a sense of great urgency, that Jesus Christ is The One True Light of the world; the giver of life and The Only Hope of all humankind. Blessings…
