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)

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)

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: 11/29- “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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/16- “More Than We Could Ever Imagine!” (Ephesians 3:20-21)

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: 11/16- “More Than We Could Ever Imagine!” (Ephesians 3:20-21)

Premise Question: Do we, as believing members of The Company of The Redeemed, ever put Papa God in a box, by limiting Him to what we can only imagine He could or would ever do, or what we think is plausible, possible or realistically, actually in the realm of reality?

“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.” (‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3:20-21‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

It is at this present time and following, for all time, that we recognize and are keenly aware of who He, The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty is and what He is capable of. For He is more than qualified, as well as, being completely proficient in accomplishing way beyond anything we could ever picture, perceive or hope for, or even desire to happen in our lives. He does all this through His inexhaustible power that is also incomparable, and that is presently, even at this very moment, operating with great efficiency and effectiveness deep inside of each one of us, within the within of our inmost being. Therefore, it is for this reason that all praise, all honor and all glory, within The Church—The Company of The Redeemed, and in His Son—Jesus Christ, shall, throughout every generation past, present and every generation that follows, be His, The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty’s, for ever and ever, without end! Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Simply put: Don’t ever limit Papa God, in what He may want to do in your life or the life of another. And, always make room for Him, by giving Him all the space He desires and requires to operate, in order to fulfill and accomplish His divine will, purpose and plan, in and for your life.

And finally, always remember, don’t ever neglect or forget, but believe and accept this wonderful, undeniable and established truth, that with Papa God, there isn’t anything that’s beyond the realm of possibility, to all those that choose to believe! (Mark 9:23) And, there isn’t an eye that has seen, or an ear that has heard, nor even a mind that could ever even begin to imagine, all that Papa God has in store for those that truly love Him! 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: PDCP- 11/02- “The LORD Is A Faithful Friend, Trustworthy Teacher And My Redeeming Rescuer!” (Psalms 25:14-15)

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: 11/02- “The LORD Is A Faithful Friend, Trustworthy Teacher And My Redeeming Rescuer!” (Psalms 25:14-15)

Premise Question: Why is it so significantly important for a person to give true honor, due respect, and to revere and fear, with reverential awe, The LORD?

“The LORD is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant. My eyes are always on the LORD, for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies.” (Psalms‬ ‭25:14-15‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

The LORD discloses and imparts His mysteries and secrets to His confidants; those whom He considers trustworthy, because of their faithfulness shown towards Him, by honoring, revering and respectfully worshiping Him. He enters into an agreement with them, by enacting, establishing and giving them a deep understanding and awareness of His intent and divine purpose for them. Therefore, let it be known, that my focus, with rapt attention, shall at all times be constantly upon the magnificent majesty of The LORD’s power, grace and mercy, for it is He and He alone, that can set me free from all of my falterings, failings and falling into a pit or being tripped, tricked or trapped and ensnared by the enemy of my soul. He, The LORD, is our best, greatest and only hope. For apart from Him, there is no other hope! (Psalm 25:14-15 PDCP)

Bottom Line: There are a number of extremely important, being really significant reasons, along with some great benefits and wonderful results, why a person should choose, or may in fact, want to decide to give serious consideration, to giving The LORD the true honor, due respect and reverential awe, that should absolutely always only go to Him.

First and foremost, topping the list, is the direct command given to us through Papa God’s Holy Scriptures, which tells us, that fear of The LORD is always the place to begin; as it is the only solid and unshakable sure foundation of divine wisdom and knowledge! We are exhorted and strongly encouraged, with faithfulness and an undivided heart, to earnestly pursue and acquire wisdom, while always hating evil and perverse speech.

The benefits derived from choosing to fear The LORD are huge and plentiful; as they provide the person with excellent instruction for life, security and protection from evil and harm, escapes from snares and traps, long life, true wisdom and real treasure.

The incredibly wonderful results that ensue and that will most assuredly follow a person’s wise decision to always fear The LORD, by giving true honor, due respect, with reverential awe, are numerous—here is just a sampling:

Great insight and understanding of the mysteries and secrets of The LORD, complete joy, real peace, good judgment and discernment, having all that a person will ever need, growing in knowledge and strength, becoming stronger and stronger in faith, not having to ever be afraid of anything or anyone, and always knowing the direction and path to take in life; because, The LORD is our ever faithful friend, our wise and trustworthy teacher and our wonderful redeeming rescuer—The Savior of humankind! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/31- “Papa God’s Holy Light Living Inside Of Us!” (John 8:12)

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: 10/31- “Papa God’s Holy Light Living Inside Of Us!” (John 8:12)

Premise Question: Is it possible for a person to be unaware that they’re even unaware of the darkness and depravity they’re living in, even to the point of fully believing, thinking, determining and then accepting, that the darkness and depravity that they’re living in is full of light and life; when in reality, is actually full of eternal death, annihilation and utter destruction?

“Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” (‭‭John‬ ‭8:12‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

When Jesus again, began to address those who had gathered in the temple courts, at the break of dawn, to hear Him teach and expound upon the Scriptures; He declared unto them without equivocation, but with exactness and clarity, “I Am the resplendent radiance and source of all life and light in the world! For I Am not only the igniter and spark of life, but the total illumination of all enlightenment. I Am the blaze that has been burning even before time began, as the eternal flame, never to be extinguished holy fire of The Almighty Sovereign LORD GOD! Therefore, whoever chooses to pursue Me, with their whole being, spirit, soul and body, will never be hopelessly lost; stumbling around in the darkness and depravity of this world, with it’s perverse system, but will have Papa God’s Holy Light, living inside of them, leading, guiding and directing their steps, in this life.” (John 8:12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Yes! I believe it is possible to be so unaware of your surroundings that you are completely deluded and deceived and literally unaware that you are in darkness, without the ability to clearly see or perceive the depth of depravity and darkness that is all encompassing, enveloping and pervading every part of your life!

It’s been said: “How great the darkness must be that is called light!” We are even warned about the evil one that may appear to be light and full of life, but in reality is only full of lies, deceit and empty promises of satisfaction and fulfillment, and only, always delivers a life full of shame, degradation, guilt, remorse, spiritual depravity, and ultimately, a loss of everything; leading to eternal death and separation from the glorious, full of tranquil peace and refreshing joy, of the presence of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty.

Thank You Papa God, that You sent The Light that shone in the land full of darkness and that the people living there in the darkness can now see The Light and be led out of the captivity and depravity of the darkness, to be completely set free, to walk, live and flourish, in The Light of Your presence; by having every step they take in this life, being directed, led and guided, by the presence of Your Light and Spirit living in them, to do Your will, fulfill Your purpose and to be pleasing to You in all that they will ever do and say.

Dear Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, Light of the world, shine Your Light through all of us, into this world and into the lives of those that are being held captive, in its darkness and depravity, in order to bring release and deliverance to all those who are unaware that they’re even unaware of the depth of the darkness and depravity, that is having a huge influence and significant impact upon them! Blessings…
