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: 08/10- “Get Rid Of It All!” (Ephesians 4:31-32)

Premise Question: Why would any member of The Company of The Redeemed ever even consider choosing to hold onto things, that if they don’t deliberately choose to get rid of completely, out of their lives, will eventually end up destroying them and weakening their faith; when, if they would just confess those things as sin and release and replace them with the exact opposite attitudes, behaviors and practices, their lives would be full of love, joy, peace and release, and their faith would be made stronger, regardless of the kinds of attacks, hurts, insults hurled, or harm that may be directed against them?

“Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.”
(‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭4:31-32‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Don’t allow yourself even another scintilla of a moment of being encumbered, weighted down or influenced by some intense, antagonistic, grievous and resentful attitude, animus or hostility, you have towards someone or something, to turn into an out of control blind rage of belligerent behavior, because you’ve determined that somehow, or in someway, you’ve been horribly wronged by something that happened, or by someone’s words, attitude or actions towards you; therefore, as a direct consequence, you are then subject to immediately being thrust and literally propelled into acting out, in a malicious and retaliatory way, with the express intent and overwhelming purpose and desire of inflicting injury, harm, recompense and suffering upon something or someone. Rather though, choose to exhibit and model a benevolent and kind nature, with quite an indulgent disposition of always showing extreme compassion and patience toward each other, by releasing and forgiving one another, being loving, overlooking the offense and being long suffering, with great grace, mercy and kindness in the same way that Papa God, through His Son Jesus Christ is forgiving, loving, gracious, merciful, kind and long suffering towards you. (Ephesians 4:31:32 PDCP)

Bottom Line: What a great question for each one of us to answer, in relation to our own spiritual sojourn and daily walk of faith! Why would anyone hang on to things that can ultimately destroy them?

Here is a brief list: Wounded spirit, resentfulness, holding bitterness, which can turn into holding a grudge and being vengeful, which leads to refusing to forgive and release someone or something that has happened to them. These are all quite understandable and typically, an all too common reaction and practice, given the amount of hurt and suffering it can bring or heap on a person’s life. And even though The LORD completely understands and is sympathetic and compassionate, He doesn’t have to come into agreement with us on how it should best be resolved! For He desires that a person learn and choose to respond to the other person or situation, in the same way and manner He would and has prescribed, rather than just going nuclear and having a meltdown of their reactor.

Our natural tendency is to react, one could even say that it is actually in the DNA of our old fallen humankind nature to do so. But, we now have a new life, with a new nature, the nature of Jesus Christ and His attitudes, mindset, behaviors, characteristics of His Spirit living in us; for the old is passed away and died and the new life has come and taken up residence inside of us, completely transforming us into a new person, to do His will and fulfill His divine purpose, bringing honor and glory to Him! (Galatians 2:20)

So, in order for this to truly happen and take place in our lives, we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, must read Papa God’s Word, know His Word, fully accept all that He is conveying to us in His Word, (the “B” in Bible doesn’t stand for buffet, we can’t just pick and choose what we want or are most comfortable with) and then, we must deliberately and with great diligence and devotion, trust and obey Papa God’s Word, by putting into practice in our daily lives, the perfect example, that’s been clearly delineated for all of us in Papa God’s Word, The Living Word—Jesus Christ, our LORD and Savior!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/24- “There’s Power In Confession And Prayer!” (James 5:16)

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: 07/24- “There’s Power In Confession And Prayer!” (James 5:16)

Premise Question: Is it even remotely possible, to have the sensational and absolutely miraculous outcome, that effectuates and produces the greatly needed and desired results of total healing, real restoration and complete deliverance, for a person who is in sin, and needing to be made whole, without an open and truthful confession by them, along with, serious in intention, purposeful prayer, offered up urgently, with diligence and devotion, by a person who is righteous?

“Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.” (‭‭James‬ ‭5:16‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

So then, because there are wonderful results when we utilize the power of prayer, in our everyday lives, our ordinary interaction with one another should be, that we openly acknowledge, owning up to our own faults, our willful and deliberate lapses in good and right behavior, which are violations and transgressions of Papa God’s Holy Law, by being open, transparent and accountable to each other. We should also stand in the gap for one another, by offering up specific prayers of entreaties and requests for complete healing and restoration of spirit, soul and body; both for the individual and for the entire Company Of The Redeemed. The very act and ordinary practice of praying, with purposeful intent, as an individual member of The Company Of The Redeemed, is most potent. For it has a most desirable effect of exerting a great and mighty force, not of this world, that produces an efficacious result; which also prepares and makes ready, the individual, as well as, the whole Company Of The Redeemed, for works of service in Papa God’s Kingdom. (James 5:16 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The quick and succinct answer to the premise question is: NOPE! Not-Obtainable-Possible-Ever! The reason it is not even remotely possible, is because where there is sin present and being practiced in an individual’s daily life, there is a greatly diminished capacity and availability of Papa God’s efficacious power to operate in the individual believer’s life; due to the fact that sin completely nullifies the marvelous and the miraculous from happening in the life of the believer who continues to participate in and practice sin.

Without a sincere, humble, open and honest confession of one’s sin and desperate need for wholeness, healing, restoration and deliverance, along with the efficacious and fervently offered up prayers of a believer in right standing with Papa God, the believer in need will not experience the desired and greatly needed results. For it is only the righteous who are granted the power and authority necessary to effect, in a positive way, the desperate condition of the one who is in need of deliverance and healing!

So, let’s confess our sins one to another, and then, pray for one another to receive the total healing and complete deliverance and restoration that’s made available to everyone of us, through the righteous among us, from Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty!

There is power in confession, and great deliverance through prayer, with the emerging result of wholeness and healing for every believer! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/18- “Don’t Judge And Condemn Others, If You Want Forgiveness!” (Luke 6:37)

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: 07/18- “Don’t Judge And Condemn Others, If You Want Forgiveness!” (Luke 6:37)

Premise Question: Is it even a remote possibility for us to receive and experience the forgiveness of Papa God, if we refuse to forgive others?

““Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven.”
(‭‭Luke‬ ‭6:37‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Refuse to pass judgement on others, by coming to a quick conclusion based upon your own opinions, thoughts, inferences or the input of others; thus, you will not incur Papa God’s judgement upon your own life. Do not ever indicate your strong disapproval upon others, by condemning them, declaring them unredeemable, incurable, or without hope, and you then, will not be thus, condemned by Papa God. Always, on all occasions, in any situation or circumstance, and with every opportunity that you are presented with, choose to forgive others, by absolving them, walking in release before them, giving up your rightful claim that you have against them, and then, canceling the debt you are owed. Do this, then Papa God will forgive and pardon you, releasing you from the debt that you owe to Him and are unable to pay, by remitting every one of your sins. (Luke 6:37 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Nope! Not even a slim chance or remote possibility! Not gonna happen! For if we refuse to forgive others, then there is no forgiveness for us, as Papa God will only forgive us for our own sins, transgressions, failings, faults and mistakes, if we will choose to freely forgive, with the same degree and in the same manner that Papa God has so graciously forgiven us, the sins, transgressions, failings, faults and mistakes of others. (Matthew 6:15, Luke 17:4, Colossians 3:13, Mark 11:4, 25, Ephesians 4:32)

Our own forgiveness is connected and conditional upon us forgiving and releasing others. The more you give and extend forgiveness to others, the more forgiveness you’ll receive and experience. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP-07/13- “Bears, Bears And More Bears!” (Colossians 3:13)

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: 07/13- “Bears, Bears And More Bears!” (Colossians 3:13)

Premise Question: Really now, have you ever considered what kind of Bear you are and which Bear bests describes the One others see in you, and therefore, they, of a necessity, must learn to deal and interact with, on an ongoing basis; so, is it a Forbearing and Forgiving Bear, a Cuddly Warm and Fuzzy Teddy Bear, or an Angry, Easily Offended, Unbearable, Irritatingly Annoying, Unsociable, Always Hiding, Growling, Prowling and Pouting, Brooding Bear?

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. (‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭13‬ NIV)

Be long suffering and enduringly patient with each other, always walking in forgiveness and release towards one another; allowing the same love that Christ Jesus has shown towards you and others to be your monitor, guide, gage and regulator when dealing with any hurts, complaints, unfair or unjust treatment you may have experienced, as well as, any grievance you may have against another. Release them! Release them! Release them! Do it immediately, always and forever, in the same way, manner and gracious fashion, that The LORD Jesus Christ has forgiven and released you. (Colossians 3:13 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, are urgently and specifically called to be righteous, good and affectionately loving, forbearing and forgiving, kind, considerate, full of patience, “Long-suffering Bears” with each other, who will choose to be the “Good News Bears” who will “Bear” all things, and will also be righteous “Fruit-bearing Bears.”

A “Bad News Bear” though, because of things that they may have experienced or gone through, over the course of their life, may become a wounded, disillusioned, depressed, “Hiding Bear,” with the attitude and disposition of a crazed, hurt, ready to bare its claws and maul with impunity, bad, onerous, with a horrible disposition, “Grim Grizzly Bear,” that’s always growling, prowling and pouting, a “Brooding Bear,” ever looking for someone or something to devour and destroy.

Dear LORD, help each of us to become forbearing, forgiving and enduringly patient with one another, “Bears,” and let us desire to be open and transparent with each other, in order to be part of the healing process that needs to take place; always remembering and being fully aware of how You were forbearing, forgiving and extremely patient, kind, considerate and long-suffering with each one of us!

So, just what kind of “Bear” are you perceived to be by others? Blessings…

PS: I hope you enjoyed the play on words, for there’s truth in them…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/10- “Papa God Is Ever Faithful And True!” (1 John 1:9)

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: 07/10- “Papa God Is Ever Faithful And True!”
(1 John 1:9)

Premise Question: What is the one condition that we, as an individual of humankind, must fulfill in order to receive a complete clean bill of spiritual health and remission for all of our sins?

But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. (‭1 John‬ ‭1‬:‭9‬ NLT)

On the condition that we are willing to address truthfully, by admitting fully, the failings, falterings, and fallaciousness in our lives, then Papa God, who is Holy, full of righteousness and justice, will be true to Himself and every promise in His word, by completely releasing us from the severe penalty of our transgressing failings, falterings and fallaciousness, purging any and all effects of our misdeeds, wrong behaviors and evil practices from our lives, making us pure and righteous to stand before Him. (1 John 1:9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The one condition that everyone, as an individual of humankind, must meet, in order to be set free from their sin and its righteous requirements, which by themselves and on their own, could not ever be satisfied or fulfilled, is to become transparent, by coming clean; holding nor hiding anything in secrecy, unconfessed, but with an openness, to freely confess all of their sin to Papa God, repenting and turning away from any evil conduct or practices and then trusting and relying on His great faithfulness and His pure and just righteousness to wipe the slate completely clean, by entirely removing every bit of wickedness and also granting a pardon and release from the required penalty for our sin, canceling our indebtedness, being fully exonerated, purified, restored and renewed back to Papa God in right relationship.

But IF—which is a BIG IF! But when we satisfy the required condition to our cleansing and restoration; then, Papa God who is always faithful and true to His Word, (for He is the Just, Holy and Righteous One) will fulfill every promise He has made, and therefore, shall give us, those who’ve confessed their sin to Him, a clean bill of spiritual health and a full remission for all of our sins!

Remember, confession is always good for the soul. Hallelujah and Amen! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/25- “Truth Be Told!” (John 5:24)

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: 05/25- “Truth Be Told!” (John 5:24)

Premise Question: What is this absolute truth that Jesus told then, who was and is it directed to, why was it given, is it still relevant for today and what divine purpose does it serve?

“I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life. (‭John‬ ‭5‬:‭24‬ NLT)

In the fullest and highest degree, I, The LORD Jesus Christ, plainly, with the greatest of accuracy, convey to you, that no matter who you are, who you’ve been, or whatever person you may be, this message is to you and for anyone and everyone that will listen to My Word of Truth, and receive it into their heart, as well as, choose to place their full confidence, with complete trust in Papa God, Who dispatched Me here to earth. Immediately, as a direct result, they will therefore, continue to exist, forever and ever, without end, throughout all of eternity, and also will not be subject to the righteous requirements of Papa God’s law, but will traverse from one place, the place of receiving full recompense and a just reward for their wickedness, which is eternal death, to another place, the place of receiving His peace, joy, righteousness and an eternal life of bliss! (John 5:24 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The absolute truth Jesus was telling then, and still holds true for today is: He and Papa God, His Father, are equals and that He only does what His Father tells Him to do. And, just as The Father, Papa God, can give life to those who’ve died, so too, does He, The Son, have power over death, hell and the grave, and thus, will give life eternal to all those who will listen, receive and believe in Papa God and His message of truth.

This truth is: that He, Jesus Christ, is the only way, the only truth and the only life and that no one will ever be successful in getting to His Father, Papa God, except and unless they believe and receive and go through Him!

In addition to that, this truth also includes the admonition that anyone who refuses to honor The Son, in effect, is also refusing to honor Papa God. So, when one honors The Son, by listening to His message of truth, accepting it and believing in Papa God, who sent Him, then they will receive, as a direct result and consequence of their belief, everlasting eternal life.

This message of truth was and still is directed to anyone and everyone upon the earth. As it was relevant then, it still is today! Jesus declares that He is, He was and He is to come, the same today, as He was yesterday and will be forever; because He and His Word are immutable and shall therefore, never be diminished in any way, nor shall it ever return void.

The divine purpose it serves is to set humankind free from the law of sin and certain death and to release them from darkness, by commuting their sure sentence of death, so that they could then walk in the light and receive eternal life, to live in and fully experience real freedom and the fullness of Papa God’s presence of everlasting joy and perfect peace.

The pure intent and reason it was given was to bring all glory and honor to Papa God and His Son, our Savior and LORD, Jesus Christ! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/23- “We All Fall Woefully Short And Are Excruciatingly Inadequate!” (Romans 3:23-24)

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: 05/23- “We All Fall Woefully Short And Are Excruciatingly Inadequate!” (Romans 3:23-24)

Premise Question: Is there any amount of effort or exercise, that we could make or do, on our own behalf, that would be successful in acquiring or producing the desired result of redemption for our soul, or would it all just be an exercise in futility?

For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God freely and graciously declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. (‭Romans‬ ‭3‬:‭23-24‬ NLT)

No one can escape the demand and righteous requirement of what is owed. As a direct result of humankind’s sin, everyone is woefully inadequate to even begin to have the ability of measuring up to the excellence and pure light of the holiness and righteousness of Papa God. Yet, all of us are declared innocent, guiltless, totally absolved of all of our sin—being completely justified, as if we had never entered into sin. This was provided and freely given to us, through and by His wonderful grace, although, this grace was not free, in the sense that it cost nothing, for it cost Papa God, The Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, everything, as they paid the ultimate price for our certain redemption. His atonement completely covered and satisfied the full amount owed for our redemption and total deliverance from sin and death; all of this came through Jesus Christ, The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty and Savior of humankind! (Romans 3:23-24 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Without the intervention and gracious help of The LORD, we all fall woefully short, as we are completely ill equipped and excruciatingly inadequate to effect the necessary transformative change that must take place in our individual lives, in order to experience a new and redemptive life of eternal joy and peace forevermore. So, by any other means, or any other course of action or path we choose to take in life, it is utterly doomed from the start, and therefore, would be pointless, useless, inconsequential and absurd, as it would be completely ineffective, worthless, without merit or reward, and would for certain be an abject exercise in futility.

Let us each, then, choose the only way and path that leads to true righteousness, perfect peace and real joy, which results in a sure and certain eternal escape from death and damnation for each one that so chooses, thereby, freeing them from the sure penalty of death and destruction; freely granting them an everlasting eternal life of joy and peace forevermore. Choose Christ—Choose life! Blessings…
