SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/11- “Salvation Is Our Ultimate Reward!” (1 Peter 1:8-9)

Premise Question: What is our sure and certain reward, how do we qualify for it, and what kind of affect/effect does it have on us, and produce in us, now, as well as into our eternal future and beyond?

“You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls.” (‭1 Peter‬ ‭1:8-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Even given the fact that you’ve never actually seen The LORD Jesus Christ in person, you still love, honor and worship Him, with everything that is within you. And though you presently are not able to see Him in the flesh, your belief, trust and unshakable faith in Him causes an explosion of joy to go off inside of you, deep within the within, of the innermost part of your being, that fills you to overflowing, with His fountain of living water, His wonderful glorious presence, which there are no words that can be uttered that will even begin to adequately express what you are receiving and experiencing from The LORD. For this is what comes forth in your life, as a consequence of yielding and surrendering to Him when you’ve placed your complete trust and faith in Him; even your redemption, the eternal salvation of your entire being—spirit, soul and body. (1 Peter 1:8-9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: All glory honor and praise belongs to The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, maker of heaven and earth and everything therein and even beyond, and who has provided a way of escape from death, hell and the grave, deliverance from all sin, darkness, captivity and bondage, for all those who will call upon The Name of The LORD, by placing their complete trust, hope, faith and reliance in and on The Name of The LORD—Jesus Christ!

Our sure and certain reward is eternal salvation—the total and complete redemption of our spirit soul and body! We are saved…regeneration of our spirit…we are being saved…sanctification of our soul…we will be saved, glorification of our body.

We are pre-qualified for our reward, as long as we simply put our complete reliance, faith, trust and hope in Him, by calling upon His Name—Jesus Christ, confessing our sin and believing in our heart that Jesus is The LORD.

The affect/effect that this decision to trust The LORD Jesus Christ with our eternal soul, is one of total exultation, outrageous celebration, completely enjoyable, being so full of joy that it is impossible to describe with mere words; for it is so wonderfully glorious that no amount of words or any type or kind of words expressed would do it justice, as it is far beyond our capability to do so! Our decision to trust in The LORD produces in us an assurance and peace that surpasses all comprehension and understanding!

Therefore, rejoice, celebrate, take delight, for our resplendent, being more than marvelous, magnificently brilliant, redemptive salvation, our ultimate reward, is drawing nigh! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 03/25- “Quality VS Quantity—An Incredibly Easy Choice To Make!” (Psalms 84:10)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 03/25- “Quality VS Quantity—An Incredibly Easy Choice To Make!” (Psalms 84:10)

Premise Question: Does quality versus quantity of life matter, with regards to what we spend our time in life doing, how we are spending our life living and who we are spending our time with, while living here on this earth?

A single day in your courts is better than a thousand anywhere else! I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God than live the good life in the homes of the wicked. (‭Psalms‬ ‭84‬:‭10‬ NLT)

Spending only one twenty-four hour period of time in Your glorious presence, is without equal and cannot even begin to be compared to spending twenty-four thousand hours or any amount of time spent, in any way, with anyone anywhere else in any realm; for that place and person, in reality, just doesn’t exist! So, when given the opportunity, I would easily choose, every time, without any hesitation or angst, to spend my time with You, Papa God. For it’s a much more desirable, being a superiorly preferable experience and with greater benefits to be enjoyed, than anything else, anywhere else! Therefore, even if I did nothing else, while in Your presence, than that of serving as a traffic supervisor, a head counter, a crowd control sentry, or even just a door monitor, with the simple task of greeting people, while holding the door open, to welcome them as they enter into Your presence; this, would be much more preferable than living a life of luxury, in a palatial mansion, with all the amenities and security one could imagine, along with not ever having any financial difficulties or challenges to worry about, while dwelling in the midst of those who are incorrigible and morally depraved. (Psalms 84:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: It’s never a good idea or decision to choose to compromise or exchange your principles, for serving your self-interest and fulfilling your own carnal and sinful desires. Nothing is ever going to be worth exchanging the divine for the profane, the temporal for the intrinsically eternal, the inane for the satisfying and fulfilling intimacy that we can only have and achieve with Papa God. Don’t ever give up your inheritance and spiritual freedom, in The LORD, for anything or anyone else: Not for the promise of physical security, financial considerations, or the provision of your daily necessities; as not any of it will ever produce or bring you peace, joy or fulfill the deepest yearnings and desires of your heart. Don’t be like Esau, Jacob’s brother, who exchanged his rightful eternal inheritance for a bowl of red stew; thereby, satisfying and fulfilling the immediacy of a temporary situation, his hunger pangs, over the greater blessing and promise of an eternal situation. (Genesis 25:30)

So, to answer the Premise Question: Quality of life does matter and no amount of quantity of life will ever suffice or be able to replace or be a suitable substitute for quality of life, comparatively speaking, with regards to spending time with and serving Papa God, while living here on this earth. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/13/15- “The End Of All Shame And Disgrace!” (Isaiah 61:7)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/13/15 “The End Of All Shame And Disgrace!” (Isaiah 61:7)

Premise Question: What does it mean to enjoy a double share of honor, possess a double portion of prosperity and to personally own and experience real joy and great delight that lasts forever?

Instead of shame and dishonor, you will enjoy a double share of honor. You will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭61‬:‭7‬ NLT)

Rather than continuing to receive and having to constantly endure the degrading humiliation of insult after insult being heaped upon you, along with experiencing huge personal regret and feeling the pain of shame and ignominious disgrace, as well as, also being the focal point of everyone’s disdain and favorite object of scorn; you will now be the recipient of a double blessing and anointing. And, rather than experiencing a loss of respect, honor and esteem, while invariably being dismissed by everyone, you will now be overjoyed, expressing and rejoicing fully in The LORD’S delight, because of your wonderful legacy and glorious inheritance. You shall now receive a double portion blessing of provision and protection, as you walk, work and worship, flourishing and thriving, in your own land, continually being filled to overflowing, with the joy, strength and honor of The LORD forevermore. (Isaiah 61:7 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Enjoying a double share of honor is when all of your shame and ignominious disgrace is removed and replaced with double the amount of honor and recognition of that which you were receiving and were recognized for while being dishonored. Example: You are highly esteemed, honored and desired; and therefore, now chosen, and when chosen, you are now chosen first, not last!

Possessing a double portion of prosperity means that you have received twice as much as the anointing, the blessing and gift that’s been given to others! Examples: Elisha’s double anointing that he received from The LORD, through Elijah; Job’s prosperity of many blessings of family, lands and possessions, along with his influence and respect was twice what it was before he was tested and tried. Interesting to note: Job was greatly blessed, not only after the testing, but after he prayed for blessings to be bestowed upon his friends, the same friends who had criticized him and told him to give up, curse Papa God and die; and also, a double portion of honor should be given to those spiritual leaders who serve honorably and handle their ministerial duties well, especially for those who work diligently preaching, teaching and effectively communicating The Word.

When someone has the wonderful and glorious experience of enjoying, with complete confidence and the full assurance of knowing that you now own and personally possess, the greatest joy and most pleasurable delight, and that nothing and no one can ever remove it or take it away from you, as it is a joy that lasts forever, well, that absolutely means it’s time to celebrate and rejoice! Right? Blessings…
