Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/14- “Be Bold, Be Strong—Unafraid And Unashamed!” (Romans 1:16)

Premise Question: Why would anyone, who has already experienced, and is actually in the know, ever succumb to being afraid or ashamed of sharing openly, with those who are in desperate need, the very thing—The Good News of Jesus Christ, that will truly deliver and set them completely free; giving and granting them an everlasting life, full of love, joy and peace forevermore?

“For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile.”
(‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:16‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

I am more than eager and well prepared to share, with anyone and everyone, at anytime and everywhere, without any hesitation, reservation or restraint, holding nothing back in reserve, but with an openness and boldness, being ever ready to declare, for all to see, hear and know, of my undying devotion and allegiance to The Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is absolutely the most excellent and incredible Good News, (the best ever in the history of the world) given to humankind; whereby, anyone and everyone, no matter what nation or station in life one hails from, all those who will embrace The Good News, by placing their complete trust and reliance in The LORD Jesus Christ and the incomparable, unsurpassed power of Papa God, which brings freedom, deliverance and salvation to everyone, shall be set free for all eternity. First, to those He first appeared to, the Jews, and then, to every other nation and people group in the whole world. (Romans 1:16 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Perhaps, some of us are afraid and ashamed, at times, and are therefore, then prone to be subject to, and succumb to, the lies and pressures of the influences that surround us. Such as: family or peer pressure, the culture, social mores, what may be accepted as popular or unpopular, couth or uncouth, cool or uncool, or even because we may be fearful of being embarrassed, ridiculed, shamed, persecuted, or that we may in some way suffer harm, for our faith, beliefs, practices, standards and way of life. Whatever the case, we do not really have any valid reason to ever be subject to nor succumb to, being afraid or ashamed! For as Papa God’s Holy Writ clearly says, as well as, strongly encourages us to accept and believe: “If Papa God Is for us, (and He absolutely most assuredly is) then who could ever be against us!” No one and nothing!

Therefore, because we are inspired and filled with the power and personal presence of The Holy Spirit, within the within of our innermost being, we should, can and ought to become strong and bold, courageous and fearless, in sharing the Good News of The LORD Jesus Christ—who is the only One who can release, deliver and set humankind free; from the power of sin and the influence of darkness and the evil one!

And remember, Papa God has commissioned us, The Company of The Redeemed, with this great and vital divine mission, of sharing the Good News with those that are lost; whose deliverance and salvation is actually depending on us being bold and strong, unafraid and unashamed! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/18- “Papa God Himself Gave A Sign!” (Isaiah 7:14)

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: 08/18- “Papa God Himself Gave A Sign!” (Isaiah 7:14)

Premise Question: What miraculous implication and great significance does the name Immanuel have attached to it, why is it so significant, and for what relevant reason and specific purpose was it given?

“All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’).” (‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭7:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

As a direct consequence of you, oh king Ahaz, trying the patience of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, yet being afraid to trust and test The LORD, and that you are also full of false humility, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty Himself will affix His personal signature to a specific divine sign, which will contain the Good News message of hope, for all of humankind, of redemptive salvation for all people everywhere, thus, obligating Himself to fulfill it in this most spectacular and miraculous way: A young, undefiled, pure woman, having not yet been with any man, will become pregnant, without ever having known a man, and she shall bring forth, by giving birth to, The Divine Immaculate Son of The Almighty God, and she will call Him by this Name, Immanuel, which means, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty is living and dwelling among us, as one of us. (Isaiah 7:14 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The miraculous implication, with great significance attached, that the name Immanuel carries with it, is that its’s truly, that the veritable expressions of both Papa God and His unique and beloved creation—humankind, have come together in the quintessential, being a completely harmonious and perfect union, for all to see, in every way. This is extremely significant because of the two different natures coming together as one: The LORD’S divine nature being enjoined with the human nature, coming to live and dwell together in one human form—Jesus Christ, in the very midst of all of humankind, to act as the mediator between Papa God, His Father, and humankind, becoming the Atonement, by taking our place in death, so that we could experience new life.

Look! Here it is! Check it out and verify it for yourself! The relevant reason and specific purpose this had to happen in this way, was because of Papa God’s great love for His beloved creation, in order that the breach that had been created, as a result of humankind’s sin, could be repaired, and the relationship and right standing with a Holy Papa God could be returned to its former and original condition and divine state.

Papa God Himself gave a sign, a virgin conceived without ever having been with a man, and from that, came Immanuel, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, our God, our LORD and our personal Savior, living and dwelling among us, as one of us! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/15- “The LORD Is Supreme!” (Colossians 1:17-18)

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: 08/15- “The LORD Is Supreme!” (Colossians 1:17-18)

Premise Question: Has there ever been, is there even now, and will there ever be, one that shall ever be able to supplant, suppress, succeed or supersede, The LORD’s Supremacy; and has there ever been, is there even now or will there ever be, one that He shall Himself secede His Supremacy to?

“He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So he is first in everything.”
(‭‭Colossians‬ ‭1:17-18‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

He, The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, is preeminently high above all rulers, powers, authorities and principalities, and it is He, that stabilizes, sustains and supports all things, keeping them working together in unison. And He is the Glorious Exalted Head, (the source of all life) of His unique body—The Church, which is the blood washed and purchased Company of The Redeemed. He was there in the beginning, even before all things, The anointed One, who opened and cleared a pathway, by being the first one to overcome death, hell and the grave; making it possible for all of us to come out from among the darkness and those who are spiritually bereft, (dead in their trespasses and sin) into His glorious light and receive eternal life, so that, with regards to anything and everything pertaining to any and every aspect of life, He, who is superior in power, authority and strength and paramount in importance and significance, might have, does have and will forever have, the utmost supremacy. (Colossians 1:17-18 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Absolutely Not! For there has never been, nor will there ever be, a world council, a world governing body, a world court, judge or ruler, no country, nation, king, leader, president, court or judge, no state, province, commonwealth, governor, or official anywhere or anytime, in the heavens above or the world below, that will ever have any power, rule or authority over His Supremacy, for He is The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty who rules and reigns Supreme in all and over all—literally everyone and everything. Therefore, there has never been, is not even now, nor ever will be, anyone or anything, that will ever be able to supplant, suppress, succeed, or supersede Him! Furthermore, nor will He ever decide to secede His Supremacy His glory, His honor, or His praise to another!

The LORD’S righteous rule and reign is Supreme and is forever and ever, without end! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/06- “Live Your Life With Eternity In View!” (Colossians 3:1-2)

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: 08/06- “Live Your Life With Eternity In View!” (Colossians 3:1-2)

Premise Question: So, now that we, as sealed members of The Company of The Redeemed, have a completely new lease and perspective on life, along with the promised and positively blessed prospects for our guaranteed, absolutely certain, joy filled future of a perfect and full of peace everlasting life; what are we doing with this amazing truth, we know as, the Good News?

“Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.” (Colossians‬ ‭3:1-2‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Since the time of the resurrection of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ, you too have now been raised to a new life with Christ; being removed out of darkness and despair, into His glorious light and pure joy, with the ultimate result of being rescued from eternal death into eternal life. Therefore, you ought to now choose to set your earthly affections and attentions, your intentions, desires and ambitions, on heavenly things; things that are immutable and eternal, where Jesus Christ is ruling and reigning in His place of honor, right beside His Father, our Papa God—The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty. You should now, therefore, fix your thoughts, your goals, aspirations and dreams, with a laser focus, on being fully consumed with Heavenly things, that have intrinsic value, not earthly things, which are temporal and filled with the cares of this life, your daily needs, challenges and worries alike. Act like you’re living life with eternity in view; don’t allow the here and now to be the dominating focal point of your life! (Colossians 3:1-2 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Once we’ve allowed the seismic shift, of the completely transformative change, that redemption and salvation has upon our lives, to take full effect, then we must take a different approach; having a brand new perspective and positive outlook on our present life, with a hopeful and joyful expectation for our future everlasting life.

In our daily life, we need to practice being positive, thankful, appreciative, always choosing to express sincere gratitude, grace and mercy towards others. We should accept, as truth, that no matter what we may experience or have to endure, during our time spent here on earth, we can relax, be comforted, encouraged and refreshed with, “and this too shall pass” and therefore, can not begin to be compared to our joy filled and glorious, hope filled future.

We ought to seriously take the long view of things and not always, because of the pressures of life, just focus on the short term and present conditions of our lives. Taking the long view means that we will deliberately choose to focus on the things of Heaven, things that have intrinsic value and are eternal, as they shall never diminish or pass away; rather, than being consumed and overwhelmed by the immediate and the temporal, which do not have any intrinsic or eternal value, but shall absolutely one day pass away and be no more.

Just a quick word of exhortation: don’t ever deny, reject, mock or minimize the miraculous in your life! Always choose to live your life with eternity in your sights! Take the long view, dismiss the short sighted view, and choose to share the truth of the Good News with everyone! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/29- “Just Live Life By Faith!” (Romans 1:17)

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: 07/29- “Just Live Life By Faith!” (Romans 1:17)

Premise Question: Why is it so difficult for some of us, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, to figure out and finally come to the full realization and truth of how important it is to just live life by faith?

“This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.” (‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

As has already been established, The Good News was sent by The Most High Sovereign Almighty Papa God, Creator of Heaven and earth, to the earth, on behalf of all of humankind, for the divine purpose of revealing His righteousness and redeeming His very own fallen creation. Papa God sent, in the form of a humble servant, His Only Son, known to us as The Christ, Jesus of Nazareth, our LORD and Savior. This righteous Good News, that came from Papa God, must initially be personally and individually accepted by faith, and then, lived out by faith, throughout the entire sojourn here upon the earth. For just as it has been faithfully recorded and written down, in Papa God’s Holy Writ, by His anointed prophet Habakkuk: “Shun evil and choose to live by faith and you shall not only survive, but flourish, because those who live a righteous life, live their individual life by faith. And, in so doing, are faithful to The One who gives them life. So, whatever you do in life, just remember to do it by living by faith; the faith of a person who has been made right in the sight of Papa God, from start to finish, by initially putting their faith in The LORD and then, continuing to have faith in The LORD, throughout their entire life, and you will enjoy and experience everlasting life.” (Romans 1:17 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Whenever anyone, who is a member of The Company of The Redeemed, attempts to go it alone and do life their own way, without the vital and significant input of The LORD, by choosing to live their life outside the parameters of what The Creator has spoken in His Holy Writ; which clearly delineates His divinely purposed and divinely designed plan for His unique and greatly loved creation, humankind, then the difficulties will abound and the cause and effect results begin to surround, pressing in all around!

Life is difficult enough on its own, but when we refuse The LORD’S help, wisdom, instruction, counsel and life giving advice, then we make it all the more difficult!

The reality is: we will not ever be successful in figuring out life until we figure out, that what needs to be figured out is that we must, if we are going to have and live the life that Papa God desires, has purposed and has divinely designed for us to fully enjoy and experience, is that it’s not going to ever happen until and unless we choose to surrender our lives to living a life of faith, in The LORD, and then, just live our life by faith!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/14- “Confess, Believe, Profess!” (Romans 10:9-10)

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: 07/14- “Confess, Believe, Profess!” (Romans 10:9-10)

Premise Question: Who wants to get saved and as a direct result, receive eternal life, and just what does a person have to do to get saved?

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. (‭Romans‬ ‭10‬:‭9-10‬ NIV)

When you, upon your own accord, for no one else can do it for you or on your behalf as a proxy, make an individual, personal confession and declaration of your faith, by professing and declaring openly, with your mouth, that Papa God’s only Son, Jesus Christ, IS The One True Son of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, and therefore, IS LORD of all, both in Heaven and on earth; and you also believe fully, with your whole heart, that Papa God raised His Son, Jesus Christ, from death, hell and the grave, then, you shall from that time on and forevermore be saved, being spared from having to spend an eternity separated from the presence of Papa God—The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, Maker of Heaven and earth. Therefore, because you have believed fully, with your whole heart, you are now completely made right and put in right standing with Papa God, cleansed and set free, from all sin and unrighteousness, even to the point of Papa God now looking at you through His Son, and you appearing to Papa God, as if you have never ever transgressed His Holy Law. For it is only when you make your personal confession and profession of faith, with your own mouth, believing in your heart that “Jesus is LORD,” that salvation and eternal life becomes and is yours forevermore! (Romans 10:9-10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: O what joy, what comfort and peace we have and experience, as The LORD Himself gives us great assurance and confidence. For we know, beyond a shadow of doubt, with full certitude, that when we, or anyone else, calls upon The Name of The LORD, by confessing and declaring with our mouth that Jesus Christ is The One True Sovereign LORD and Savior, The only Real Hope of humankind, as He is The One and Only Son of The Most High Papa God, and when we believe fully, within the within of our innermost part of our being, which is our heart, that Papa God raised His One and Only Son—Jesus Christ, from the dead, because death, hell and the grave didn’t have the power or authority to hold Him down. And, because we are fully persuaded, we openly and unashamedly profess our faith, telling others our own personal testimony of salvation, we, in effect, are effectively sharing The Good News with others, and are therefore, forever saved! Confess, Believe, Profess! Get Saved Today! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/09- “We Are Set Free!” (Romans 8:2)

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: 07/09- “We Are Set Free!” (Romans 8:2)

Premise Question: Why are we, The Company of The Redeemed, set free, what are we to become, and then, what are we to do with our freedom?

And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭2‬ NLT)

And it is for this very reason, that it has now and forevermore been established, that you are one of His own dearly beloved children, because of the path that was cleared, through the power, agency and means of Jesus Christ, who was Papa God’s instrument of His principle commandment of love. And, it is by the revelation and power of the life-giving spirit of The Holy Spirit, who is the giver of our eternal existence, that He has imparted to us life and liberty; releasing us from a horrible existence of tyranny and bondage, no longer being subject to or held captive by, the law of sin and death, which leads to eternal damnation, but now, able to enjoy to the fullest, the life of liberty in Christ Jesus, with all of its rights and privileges. (Romans 8:2 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We have been set free, in order, to worship Papa God in Spirit and in Truth! Therefore, our daily lives should be a sacrificial offering of worship and praise that truly brings honor and glory to His Name.

We are to become true and faithful servants of The Most High, by allowing His Spirit’s power in us to fulfill His divine purpose and will in our lives, as individual servants, but also as His serving CHURCH (Christ Helping Us Reach Complete Healing) at large.

So, we are set free to live, to be, to flourish, to do, to succeed, to accomplish. We are set free to become all that we were meant to be and to experience what it truly means to belong to Papa God, as His precious own and dearly beloved children.

We are set free from the darkness of this world, set free from the penalty of sin, which is death, hell, the grave and eternal separation from the presence of Papa God.

We are therefore, entirely free to enjoy our new found life, free to rejoice and be glad, because we have been released and set free from the bands and bonds of wickedness, and thereby, can now fully experience our new life of peace and joy; a life that is an everlasting life, without end.

We are free to, and should, exercise our renewed faith, by living a righteous and overcoming life, because it is Papa God Himself that has given us right standing with Him.

Therefore, we are free to enjoy sweet fellowship and to have a fulfilling relationship and union with Him, that is perfectly satisfying and refreshing.

“He set me free!” Blessings…
