SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/27- “Go—Stay—Wait!” (Matthew 28:19)

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: 12/27- “Go—Stay—Wait!” (Matthew 28:19)

Premise Question: Should we, with a great sense of urgency, GO or should we just stay put, sit idly by, while patiently waiting for the world to somehow find their way, on their own, to our, The Church’s, front door?

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.”‭‭ (Matthew‬ ‭28:19‬ ‭NLT)

Therefore, because all authority in Heaven and on earth has been given to Me, The LORD Jesus Christ, I now command you, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, to not sit idly by, waiting for the world to come to you, but to make haste and quickly go out into the world, with urgency, raising up authentic followers, from every people group, everywhere in the world, training them in righteousness, teaching them The Truth, mentoring and nourishing them to maturity and baptizing them, by immersion, into the great Company of The Redeemed, in the name of The Holy Father and of His Only Son, Jesus Christ, our LORD and Savior and of The Holy Spirit, The One who comforts, guides and empowers you to do this divine work of The Most High. (Matthew 28:19 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The only time we are to stay, is to stay in The LORD’s presence and will, in order to fulfill His purpose!

The only time we are to wait, is to wait upon The LORD, in order to be endued with His efficacious power, so that, we can do and accomplish the divine work of The LORD!

Within the message of the Great Commission, you won’t find the concept, “If You Build It, They Will Come,” rather, what you specifically do find is a resounding urgent command of “GO!”

Unfortunately though, in some instances and cases, it would seem, The Church has either forgotten or completely neglected the “GO” part of the Great Commission, and perhaps, has adopted the concept of “If You Build It, (stay put and then just wait patiently) They Will Come” mentality; thereby, staying put, sitting idly by, while waiting patiently, for the Nations (people groups) of the world to come on their own initiative and somehow find their way to the front door of The Church, rather than, The Church being specifically called, commissioned and commanded, to be compelled, with a great sense of urgency and compassion, to “GO” to the Nations, building roads and paths, through right relationships and service, that will effectively reach out to them, connecting The Church to them exactly where they are; thus, fulfilling Papa God’s Great Commission!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/26- “Let The Jubilant And Rapturous Celebration Of Great Rejoicing Ensue!” (Luke 2:20)

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: 12/26- “Let The Jubilant And Rapturous Celebration Of Great Rejoicing Ensue!” (Luke 2:20)

Premise Question: What is it time to say and do and who do we tell?

“The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. It was just as the angel had told them.”
(‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:20‬ ‭NLT‬)

The shepherds, being completely overwhelmed with rapturous joy and excitement, after not only hearing, with their own ears, the wonderful Good News, but then, having what they had just heard actually confirmed, with the incredible experience of seeing it, with their own eyes, exactly, as it had been described to them, by the angel of The LORD, even down to the smallest detail; all of this was much more than they could ever try to contain within themselves, so, upon the return to their sheep, everyone they saw along the way, they weren’t able to be reserved or hold back from glorifying and praising The LORD GOD Almighty and telling them all about the magnificently wondrous, miraculous miracle of glad tidings of great joy, the Good News for all of humankind, that they had just personally witnessed. (Luke 2:20 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Have you ever been too excited to sleep or eat or unable to sit or stand still for even a moment, because of the overwhelming anticipation and expectation of joy building up inside you and that you are experiencing due to having some insight and incredible knowledge of something really good that’s either about to happen or has already happened? What you know and what you are feeling is too wonderful to keep to yourself! You can’t hold or contain it within yourself! You’ve just got to tell someone, call someone, see someone, show someone, anyone or everyone about the Good News of what has happened or is about to happen! It may even have an affect on you of causing you to break out in dance, burst out laughing or to begin to sing uncontrollably, with rapturous joy, for you just can’t keep it inside yourself, as you are unable to contain or control it, you just can’t help it! Nothing is going to stop, delay or hinder you from immediately beginning to tell somebody, probably everybody you come in contact with or have opportunity to tell!

Perhaps, that’s what was going on with the shepherds, with regards to the news they had just received, seen and heard.

We too, have experienced and been given the same Good News! So, let us, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, do the same as the shepherds were compelled and overwhelmed with joy to do!

It’s time to let the jubilant and rapturous celebration of great rejoicing ensue and to “start spreading the news,” by beginning to tell everyone everywhere about The Good News of great joy and perfect peace for all of humankind! 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)

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: 12/24- “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- 12/20- “Sent To Save—Not To Judge!” (John 3:17)

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: 12/20- “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- 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- 11/07- “This Good News Is To Be Shared With Everyone Everywhere!” (1 Timothy 2:5-6)

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: 11/07- “This Good News Is To Be Shared With Everyone Everywhere!” (1 Timothy 2:5-6)

Premise Question: As members of The Company of The Redeemed, what should be our prima facie, our unchangeable charge and mission in life, and who, in this world, should garner the greatest attention and our utmost focus?

“For, There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time.”
‭‭(1 Timothy‬ ‭2:5-6‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

For, there truly is only one true Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty. He is the maker of Heaven and earth and everything therein. There is no other God! There is truly only one Mediator who can intervene on behalf of all of humankind; by making peace, restoring and reconciling them back together in right relationship with The Creator Papa God—The Eternal Word, Jesus Christ, who willingly became flesh, sent by Papa God, His Heavenly Father, to dwell amongst us as a man, for the express purpose of fulfilling Papa God’s perfectly designed, divinely inspired plan, at His appointed perfect time, which was when He offered up His only begotten Son, upon the cross, as a ransom paid in full, for the redemption of the whole of humankind; meaning all people everywhere in the world. Now, here is The Good News, which was revealed, witnessed and attested as the truth: Papa God, The Creator of humankind, truly desires that all of humankind, His beloved and most cherished creation, would be saved. (1Timothy 2:5-6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Our prima facie charge and mission in life, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, is to share the message of great joy and eternal hope; which is the wonderful and marvelous message of perfect peace and Good News, for all of humankind and the whole earth.

The Good News message is timeless, for it is for all time and for everyone, but was delivered to the whole world, by Papa God, just at the right and appointed perfect time; for all those who are orphaned and lost, without hope, helpless or hurting, oppressed or ostracized, harassed or hapless, persecuted or downtrodden, never excluding, ignoring nor overlooking anyone, and leaving no one in a lurch or behind, but reconciling, restoring and renewing, by redeeming and setting free, anyone and everyone who accepts The Good News message of hope, by calling on The Name of The LORD Jesus Christ to be saved!

Here is the timeless message of hope: There is only one, true and living, Papa God, who is The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, The Creator of Heaven and earth and everything therein!

There is only one Mediator and LORD, who has the qualifications, ability and authority to intervene on behalf of humankind, acting as a Paraclete between Papa God and humankind—The LORD Jesus Christ!

There is only one mission given to us by Papa God, delivered to us through His Only Son Jesus Christ: that is, to seek out those who are lost, in order to share the life-giving message of Good News and hope with them, so that, they may have the opportunity to call out upon The Name of The LORD and be delivered, set free and eternally saved!

Remember, “if you’re not ministering to the world, then who in the world are you ministering to!” And, “if you’re not focussed on the lost, then you’ve simply lost your focus!”

So, in summation, The Good News of Jesus Christ, (Joy to the world, The LORD has come) is to be shared with everyone everywhere! Papa God is depending on each and every one of us to do it! Blessings…
