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: 11/12- “Everything Is His!” (1 Chronicles 29:11)
Premise Question: How important is it for all of Papa God’s creation to recognize His Awesome Splendor and Magnificence, and that He is high above everything and everyone, as The Exalted Supreme Sovereign over all?
“Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O LORD, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things.”
(1 Chronicles 29:11 NLT)
The immensity and sheer magnitude of Your greatness, O LORD, belongs only to You, for their is no one like You. The capabilities and potency of Your power is infinite and unequalled, and Your magnificence, displayed in all of Your regal glory, is transcendent and majestic to behold, and Your stately splendor, in all of its grandeur and brilliance, is spectacularly resplendent, being beyond compare. For the aggregate of all things, whether in Heaven or on earth, is Yours and Yours alone. O LORD, no one else has even the slightest claim upon Your Kingdom, Your Realm and Domain. For Your dominion, reign and preeminence extends beyond Heaven and earth, for You are elevated high above everything and everyone, as The Supreme, August Ruler over all.
(1 Chronicles 29:11 PDCP)
Bottom Line: It is of the utmost importance, being an absolute imperative, that all of creation recognize Papa God for who He is, which is The Supreme Ruler over all! And that, what He has done is unequalled, in the transcendency and magnificence of His Glorious Majesty! Amen and Amen! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/02- “We Will Not Remain Unchanged!” (2 Corinthians 3:18)
Premise Question: How are we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, transformed and changed into the very image of The LORD, and what is our part, in the overall process?
“So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.” (2 Corinthians 3:18 NLT)
And we, the whole number of The Company of The Redeemed, no longer having faces and minds that are hidden behind a veil, but are now uncovered and bare, should then now consider, with great thought and deliberation, the magnificent reflection on display, of The LORD’S Glory, which is presently transforming us completely, changing our appearance, our nature and our character into His Image, empowering and enabling the miraculous process of gradually becoming more and more like Him, with an ever-increasing, glory releasing, freedom experiencing, life; which comes from The LORD and Savior of all, Jesus Christ—who is The Way, The Truth and The Spirit—that releases and sets us, all of humankind, free. (2 Corinthians 3:18 PDCP)
Bottom Line: It is only through the power and presence of The LORD’S Spirit being allowed to operate and function, during the ongoing moment by moment daily work that, exclusively, only The Spirit can do and accomplish, in the ongoing process of the complete and glorious transformation that must take place in the life of each and every individual believer, who is a blood bought, sin removed, made new, member of The Company of The Redeemed.
Our part, however, is to allow the miraculous transformation to take place, by first, deliberately yielding our will, our desires and our lives to The LORD; by placing our hope, trust and faith in The LORD, through sincere confession, real repentance and a moment by moment, daily entering into His presence, seeking His face and living our lives for Him.
It should always ever be our desire to do His will and fulfill His purpose for our lives, always honoring His Name, and with diligence, to earnestly live a life that will be pleasing to Him—one that will always bring The LORD glory, honor and praise—as we should always choose to be pleasing to Him, by walking in His love and release towards others. For the only thing that really matters, when all things are said and done, is our transforming faith expressing itself in true humility and authentic love, towards The LORD and others!
We shall not remain unchanged, but shall be transformed, into The LORD’S glorious image! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/27- “Unbelievable, Incomprehensible, Inconceivable, Inimitable!” (1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/27- “Unbelievable, Incomprehensible, Inconceivable, Inimitable!” (1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT)
Premise Question: Are we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, truly looking forward to the day when the unbelievable becomes the believable, the incomprehensible is finally understood and comprehended, the inconceivable and the unthinkable becomes the conceivable and thinkable and finally the absolutely inimitable is clearly seen and personally experienced by each and every member of The Company of The Redeemed?
“That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT)
Nevertheless, just as it’s been written down in Papa God’s Holy Scriptures, and therefore, has been forever established: “it is beyond unbelievable, quite improbable and extraordinarily remarkable what human eyes will one day see, as well as, incomprehensible, literally impossible to understand now, at this time, what human ears will hear on that day, and, it is completely inconceivable, far out of reach, for any human mind to imagine, the inimitable things that Papa God has in store for those who show their love for Him;” by honoring and obeying His Word, and loving their neighbors as themselves.
(1 Corinthians 2:9 PDCP)
Bottom Line: What we, each and every individual member of The Company of The Redeemed, shall see one day with our own eyes, which at this present time has not yet been revealed or seen by those who are still alive and well, here in this world; is beyond all improbability, and is going to absolutely astonish, amaze and stagger us, as the unbelievable, the impossible to ever believe transforms and becomes the possible and the believable right before our very eyes!
Our ears also shall be transformed, as we will no longer be baffled or limited, when we hear something that seems to be fathomless and beyond our comprehension of ever knowing or fully understanding that which is now, the incomprehensible; for we will have ears that will hear, know and comprehend perfectly.
And our minds, which are incredible, but at this present time doesn’t have the wherewithal to even begin to imagine, what for us is, the unimaginable, as it is completely inconceivable and too wonderful, glorious and extraordinarily beautiful for us to even to think of or consider, shall also be transformed and completely renewed.
But, the day is coming, and perhaps sooner than we think, when we all, every member of The Company of The Redeemed, shall stand before Papa God and His Son Jesus Christ, and see, in person, what once was and still is, the inimitable—all that has been and presently is being prepared for all those who love, honor and obey Him and His Son; which is far beyond ever being matched, surpassed or imitated, as it shall be supremely unequalled, unparalleled and magnificently glorious to behold and forever experience. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/07- “We Suffer Now—Revel In Glory Later!” (Romans 8:18)
Premise Question: Does everyone suffer in the same way during their time here on earth and do all receive the same glory and recognition in the future?
Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. (Romans 8:18 NLT)
After careful thought and consideration, I firmly believe and am fully convinced, that our present existing trials and tribulation, with their intolerable conditions of excruciating pain, agonizing distress, along with the great loss and unpleasantness we are even now experiencing, cannot, should not, and in fact, is not even the slightest bit significant or important enough to justify, in any way shape or form, when comparing them side by side, with the immeasurable, incalculable, magnificently distinctive in renown, resplendent glory that will be made known and personally revealed in each one of us—The Company of The Redeemed, by Papa God later on, at His appointed time. (Romans 8:18 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Not everyone will experience suffering and loss in the same way or in the same degree during their time here on earth. Nor will everyone receive the same glory, rewards and distinctive recognition later on, at the appointed time, in the future. But, everyone will suffer in some way or another and at some point and in some degree during their time here on earth.
The great and wonderfully encouraging news flash is though, that all those who share in the suffering of The LORD will also share in His resplendent glory, as well! For our suffering now, is nothing when compared to the glory to be revealed and received by us personally, later on. We will surely suffer now, but we shall also certainly revel in a future glory, at a future time, where we will be clothed and regaled with the magnificence and resplendent glory of The LORD!
The suffering we experience now cannot even begin to be compared, as it is not even worthy of comparison, with the glory, rewards and recognition that we’ll receive later on. For the greater the suffering now, the greater the glory, recognition and reward later on. (2 Corinthians 4:16-18, Matthew 5:12)
I personally came to the full acceptance and realization of this great and encouraging principle, and the absolute truth during the time I watched my precious and greatly beloved wife and mother of my children, Cynthia, go through suffering that was beyond belief and too difficult to explain or understand; for it was more than I could endure and much more than I had ever seen anyone go through before or since!
It was during that time, and right after though, that The LORD opened the eyes of my heart and understanding, so that I could clearly see and perceive, with great insight and a deep understanding, that ultimately He was going to use it all for His glory and divine purpose in me, as well as, the tremendous gracious and glorious benefit of my beloved wife, Cynthia.
For one day, in the future and at the appointed time, I will see with my own eyes, the glory of The LORD upon His faithful and enduring great suffering servant Cynthia, as I too will one day stand before The LORD, The One who is our loving, full of gracious favor and great mercy, our Savior, who is ever faithful to His Word and every promise therein, and shall then receive the glory, rewards and recognition that shall far outweigh and exceed any suffering I endured and experienced during my stay and sojourn here upon this earth. We will suffer now, but later on, we shall revel in His glory! Hallelujah! Blessings…
