SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/28- “There’s No Reason To Fear, Our Victory’s Already Here—A Done Deal!” (Isaiah 41:10)

Premise Question: What have we, The Company of The Redeemed, who are the greatly beloved and cherished children of The Most High, to be afraid of or discouraged about?

“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, because I Am, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, has already personally selected you to be my cherished choice servants, do not ever be frightened of anything or anyone, for there is nothing to be afraid of, as I Am, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, shall always be with you and shall never abandon, leave or forsake you. Therefore, don’t ever allow the things that are happening around you to dissuade, distress, discourage, dismay or terrorize you, for I Am, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, am your Protector and Everlasting Redeemer. I Am, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, will make you strong, with the power of My might; which shall be there, as an ever present help and strong support during difficult and troubling times. I Am, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, have taken a firm hold on you with My righteous right hand and shall never grow weary and then let go or release you from My, already assured, victorious strong , everlasting grip. (Isaiah 41:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: There’s really no need to ever be afraid of anything or anyone in this world. Even though we will definitely encounter trouble, trial, tribulation, tumult, pain, suffering, hurt, disappointment, distressing hardships, as well as difficult and troubling times, during our brief time and spiritual sojourn here on this earth, there is still not ever a reason to lose hope, but there is always a reason to remember and not ever forget this: He, The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty has overcome it all, on our behalf, and will always be there with us, to comfort, to help, to encourage, to protect, to strengthen and support us, by empowering us to also be overcomers.

It is because of His great promise, that He will never abandon, leave or forsake us, that our victory is already assured, no reason to fear, or to ever be discouraged, as our victory is already achieved and is here—a done deal! Blessings…

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

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: 12/25- “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. When He comes to earth, to dwell amongst humankind, as a humble servant, it will be 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 may the blessings of good will, great joy and perfect peace of The LORD GOD Almighty be upon us all! Blessings…

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

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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/21- “A Word Of Comfort And Assurance Given To Joseph And All Of Humankind!” (Matthew 1:21)

Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/21- “A Word Of Comfort And Assurance Given To Joseph And All Of Humankind!” (Matthew 1:21)

Premise Question: What are we to do today with the message Papa God delivered to Joseph, concerning Papa God’s Only Begotten Son?

“And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”” ‭‭(Matthew‬ ‭1:21‬ ‭NLT‬)

The Angel Gabriel, in speaking to Joseph, on behalf of, as well as, being the mouthpiece of Papa God, tells him that Mary, his betrothed, will bring forth a child of The Most High; The Anointed One, a Son, and that he, Joseph, is to confer upon Him the name Jesus. This particular name carries, within its title, The Savior of humankind, for it is He, that will rescue humanity from the certain plight of their transgressions, which is, first and foremost, that of being eternally separated from the presence of Their Creator; thereby, causing them to miss out on Papa God’s mercy and His divine and most gracious, loving purpose for their lives. (Matthew 1:21 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Pause for a moment to ponder the incredible amount of confidence and trust that Papa God had in Mary and Joseph…Wow! It’s almost too difficult to grasp or fathom.

Now, take another pause and reality check, of the fact that Papa God, still today, is placing His complete confidence and full assurance in us; by entrusting each one of us to continue to share, with everyone everywhere, this great and marvelous message of Good News, assurance, truth and His great comfort, love, deliverance and life-giving freedom for all of humankind! Blessings…

Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/20- “Sent To Save—Not To Judge!” (John 3:17)

Premise Question: What must one do, in order to take full advantage of the wonderful provision made by Papa God, on behalf of His unique, greatly beloved and immeasurably cherished, made in His image creation—humankind?

“God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.” (John‬ ‭3:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

For The Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth and everything therein, committed His beloved, Only Begotten Son, to the earth, dispatching Him to dwell in the midst of humankind, not for the purpose of pointing the finger of condemnation at them, or denouncing them, nor was it to pronounce them guilty, and then pass a sentence of punishment upon them, but to come to their rescue, by delivering them out of the darkness and the eternal punishing fire, into His glorious light; setting them free, with an emancipation proclamation of redemption, that includes an escape clause, from certain death and damnation, through Him, The Savior of humankind. (John 3:17 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Papa God, The Creator of everything, has provided us, all of humanity, with a one way ticket, in order to escape certain eternal death and damnation. For it’s only through His Son, The LORD Jesus Christ, who came, “to seek and to save” a lost and without hope, if not for Him, all those of humankind, who will call upon His Name for eternal salvation. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/01- “Time To Buck Up, Soul!” (Psalms 42:11)

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: 12/01- “Time To Buck Up, Soul!” (Psalms 42:11)

Premise Question: Should we really attempt to have a serious conversation with our own soul, when we are down and out, discouraged and disturbed?

“Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again— my Savior and my God!” (‭‭Psalms‬ ‭42:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Why, O my soul, and for what earthly reason could there ever be an occasion, on which I would ever allow you to stay in a state of despondency; spiraling downward, feeling dejected, disheartened and depressed? Why, O my soul, would you perpetually be distressed, disrupted and disturbed deep within the within of my inmost being; in disharmony and in complete disarray? Listen up, here’s what you should immediately do, O my soul, because it’s what I’m going to do whether you want or are even ready for me to do so! I firmly put, I resolutely place, I fasten tightly, my complete hope, faith and trust, in and upon The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty! I determinedly do this right now, by worshiping, with exuberant and joyful praise, The LORD GOD Almighty, my Redeemer and my most merciful, loving and full of gracious favor, Papa God! (Psalms 42:11 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Yes! We need to have a serious conversation with our soul, expressing to our soul, that no matter what is going on in our life, there is nothing in this world that we should fear or be worried about. For He, The LORD Himself, will quiet and put us at perfect peace, deep within the within of the inmost part of our being.

And, He, and He alone, is able to truly satisfy the hunger, quench the thirst and fulfill the deepest yearnings, longings and desires of our souls!

It’s time, children of Papa God, to tell our souls to buck up! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/30- “The LORD GOD Almighty Always Fulfills His Word!” (Malachi 3:1)

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: 11/30- “The LORD GOD Almighty Always Fulfills His Word!” (Malachi 3:1)

Premise Question: Who specifically is The LORD GOD Almighty speaking about, through His servant and mouthpiece, the prophet Malachi?

““Look! I am sending my messenger, and he will prepare the way before me. Then the Lord you are seeking will suddenly come to his Temple. The messenger of the covenant, whom you look for so eagerly, is surely coming,” says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.” (‭‭Malachi‬ ‭3:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

“I, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, shall send my appointed courier, to clear and prepare the way, as a forerunner, announcing the Good News of the arrival of My Anointed One. Then, all of a sudden, The LORD and Savior that you’ve been earnestly seeking and patiently waiting for, shall appear in His temple, as The Agent Messenger of the new covenant of My redemptive gracious love; for The One you’ve most desired, shall surely appear at His appointed time,” says The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty!” (Malachi 3:1 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The prophet Malachi has faithfully written down, for all to see hear and receive, the clear and precise Good News message, which was personally delivered from the very mouth of Papa God Himself, (who is The One and Only True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty) of the sure and certain coming of the promised Anointed One; who will, in the fulfillment of His Word, release, set free, cleanse and purify all those who, in humility and contriteness, call upon The Name of The LORD for salvation.

He, The LORD GOD Almighty, saves and delivers them completely, by removing the penalty of sin and death; which is eternal punishment and separation from the presence of Papa God.

The LORD GOD Almighty’s wonderful message of Good News, is that He is sending one, John The Baptist, who will come in The Name of The LORD, preparing the way of The Anointed One—Jesus Christ, who, upon the cross, has already accomplished His divine mission, and is even now, presently, continuing to fulfill His Word and mission, by ever interceding, on our behalf, and shall yet do, all that He has said, in His Everlasting Word, that He will do!

Our divine mission now, is to be His appointed and anointed messengers, His personal ambassadors, boldly declaring and proclaiming, with courage and clarity, Papa God’s wonderful Good News about The Redeemer—Jesus Christ, to everyone everywhere, in this present world! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/29- “Thankfulness Provides Strength And Stability In Our Faith!” (Colossians 2:7)

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: 11/29- “Thankfulness Provides Strength And Stability In Our Faith!” (Colossians 2:7)

Premise Question: Why is it so vital and critically important, as well as being absolutely imperative, that we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, be deeply rooted and established in The Truth of The LORD?

“Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” (‭‭Colossians‬ ‭2:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Allow yourself to grow down deep and wide, being deeply entrenched, and firmly implanted in The LORD, producing a strong foundation, that will be able to support a solid structure that is fortified and stabilized, by your strong certitude and convictions, that you were taught and brought up in; even, your stalwart belief and faith in The Truth—our Blessed Hope, that causes you to always be abounding in great measure in superabundance, teeming and overflowing with gratitude and thanksgiving. (Colossians 2:7 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We must, each one, be willing to be buried in Him, (in order to become “B-I-G” in God, you must first be willing to be Buried-In-God—planted down deep in Him, like a seed that is planted in the ground and dies, but then germinates and is brought back to life to produce a harvest after its kind, so too, must we be willing to die to self, so that we can then produce a harvest after its kind—a righteous one) thoroughly and completely immersed, totally embedded in His presence, being literally surrounded and covered by His righteousness; while growing down and out, initially, in order to create a strong root system that will then give us a sure foundation, so that we can build a strong and stalwart life structure, that will have the ability, strength and capacity to withstand the various trials and storms of life, in order to enable us to mature, by growing up and then spreading out, with hearts filled with gratitude and thanksgiving, so that we can then flourish, having an efficacious and powerfully reaching impact, not only upon our own lives, but the many lives of others living in this world, as well.

All of this will have the glorious effect of producing within us and others, a great and bountiful, successful harvest of righteousness; wherever we go, wherever we are and with whomever we have the wonderful and blessed opportunity to love, bless, help and serve.

Remember though, in order for any of us to grow, flourish and then produce a successful and righteous harvest with our lives, in this life, we must first, for there is no other way, be willing to be planted, buried deep (die) in the ground of The LORD; growing down deep and spreading out wide, so that a sure and strong, solid foundation is put in place, in our lives, that will and can support and sustain an appropriate and divinely designed and ordered structure of The LORD, in our lives, that will surely grow up, flourish, spread out wide and remain, thereby, blessing not only our own lives, by producing a successful harvest of righteousness, which is pleasing to The LORD, but will also affect, in an efficacious, good, acceptable and most perfect way, the lives of many others, in this life. Grow down and out before ever attempting or expecting to grow up and out! Blessings…
