Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/23- “It’s Registration Time—So Make Room In Your Heart!” (Luke 2:6-7)

Premise Question: How does one register, in order to then be counted in the census of The LORD GOD Almighty, and, have you personally registered yet?

“And while they were there, the time came for her baby to be born. She gave birth to her first child, a son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.”
(‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:6-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

On the night of Mary and Joseph’s arrival into Bethlehem, the City of David, for the specific purpose of registering for the census, they were unable to secure appropriate lodging, as there was not a room or quarters available anywhere in the city to be had. And so, because Mary was very close to the time of her delivery, they were compelled to take what was left; which was a small stall in a stable, but it would have to suffice, on this wondrous and most glorious night. Sometime during this night, Mary went into labor and thus, brought forth into the world her firstborn, a son. She then carefully wrapped him up, tight and secure, in strips of clothing and then gently and lovingly laid him in a animal feeding trough, just inside the stall. (Luke 2:6-7 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Registration is now open and upon us all! It’s time for each of us to make room in our hearts and lives for “The Bread of Life,” The Savior of humankind, to come and reside within the within of our innermost beings.

After all, the first place He was lain, immediately after His glorious and wondrous birth, was in a manger; which of course, is a common feeding trough.

Perhaps Papa God was sending a message to everyone everywhere, even then, there in the very beginning, that all should come and partake of “The Bread of Life,” who came to bring redemption, salvation and new life to all who will believe and receive, by simply calling upon The Name of The LORD—The Savior of humankind—Jesus Christ, The Messiah and King!

Something for each and everyone of us to sincerely consider during this busy season. It’s registration time, so let’s not miss out on this wonderful and most glorious opportunity to make room in our hearts for The King of kings—Jesus Christ, The Savior of humankind. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/11- “Believing Is Truly Seeing!” (Hebrews 11:1)

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: 12/11- “Believing Is Truly Seeing!” (Hebrews 11:1)

Premise Question: Seeing is believing, or, believing is truly seeing; which thought and statement is most authentically appropriate for those of us who are believing members of The Company of The Redeemed?

“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” (Hebrews‬ ‭11:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Now concerning our Rock Solid unshakable faith, which is the sure foundation upon which everything in our existence is built on, for faith is what gives us the supreme confidence, being fully convinced, that what we hope for, in this life and beyond, even though we can not actually see it, with our physical eyes, we still have the absolute assurance of our strong convictions; therefore, our faith is all the evidence that we need, in order to believe in what we can not see with our physical eyes. (Hebrews 11:1 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Near the end of The Gospel according to The Apostle John, Jesus had an encounter with The Apostle, known as “The Twin,” and who has since been referred to as “Doubting Thomas” and who, on a personal level, had some serious doubts about whether or not Jesus had actually, in fact, really risen from the grave. He even struggled with the personal eye witness accounts and reports of his closest friends and associates; boldly and definitively declaring that he was not going to believe their reports unless he was personally able to see with his own eyes, and then, place his own fingers in the actual holes of The LORD’s hands and feet, thus the thought and statement, “seeing is believing” rather than the thought and statement of faith of “believing is truly seeing!”

In this riveting and most unique encounter we don’t see The LORD rebuke Thomas for his doubts, but The LORD surely encourages Thomas to take a look, feel and then, see and believe that He is real and that He really has risen from the grave.

I personally don’t feel, nor do I think, The LORD is put off by our doubts, for it is us that are actually put off by our own doubts and unbelief.

So, just as Thomas was encouraged to see and believe, but was also encouraged to have a greater faith, which is to believe—being full of assurance and expectant hope, confidently seeing with the eye of faith—The LORD is now encouraging us to believe and truly see!

We should therefore, take a firm grip upon our faith, but even more important, is allowing our faith to take a strong hold upon us! For whether it’s in the past time, present time or some future time, the concept of “now” always applies and should therefore, be a continuum for all time, when we sincerely consider the matter of our faith!

So, when evaluating our own faith, “seeing is not believing,” but, “believing is truly seeing” confidently, with the eyes of faith, while being fully assured, with a heart full of joy-filled expectant hope! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/01- “Time To Buck Up, Soul!” (Psalms 42:11)

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: 12/01- “Time To Buck Up, Soul!” (Psalms 42:11)

Premise Question: Should we really attempt to have a serious conversation with our own soul, when we are down and out, discouraged and disturbed?

“Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again— my Savior and my God!” (‭‭Psalms‬ ‭42:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Why, O my soul, and for what earthly reason could there ever be an occasion, on which I would ever allow you to stay in a state of despondency; spiraling downward, feeling dejected, disheartened and depressed? Why, O my soul, would you perpetually be distressed, disrupted and disturbed deep within the within of my inmost being; in disharmony and in complete disarray? Listen up, here’s what you should immediately do, O my soul, because it’s what I’m going to do whether you want or are even ready for me to do so! I firmly put, I resolutely place, I fasten tightly, my complete hope, faith and trust, in and upon The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty! I determinedly do this right now, by worshiping, with exuberant and joyful praise, The LORD GOD Almighty, my Redeemer and my most merciful, loving and full of gracious favor, Papa God! (Psalms 42:11 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Yes! We need to have a serious conversation with our soul, expressing to our soul, that no matter what is going on in our life, there is nothing in this world that we should fear or be worried about. For He, The LORD Himself, will quiet and put us at perfect peace, deep within the within of the inmost part of our being.

And, He, and He alone, is able to truly satisfy the hunger, quench the thirst and fulfill the deepest yearnings, longings and desires of our souls!

It’s time, children of Papa God, to tell our souls to buck up! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/11- “Jesus Is The One And Only Son Of The One And Only True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty!” (1 John 4:15)

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: 10/11- “Jesus Is The One And Only Son Of The One And Only True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty!” (1 John 4:15)

Premise Question: What is the direct and clear message that we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, are confessing and professing, by declaring that The LORD Jesus Christ is The One and Only Son of The One and Only True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty; and what is the marvelously blessed and gloriously splendid, miraculous result?

“All who declare that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them, and they live in God.” (‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:15‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Anyone, which includes the whole of humankind, who will openly, being completely unashamed and unafraid, confess and declare to anyone anywhere, by recognizing and accepting, with a confessing profession as truth, that The LORD Jesus Christ is The One and Only begotten Son of The One and Only True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, consequentially, will then have, The Spirit of The LORD GOD Almighty, The Living Papa God, taking up residence within the within of them, and then, their abode becomes the place of His Eternal Presence, and their eternal home. (1 John 4:15 PDCP)

Bottom Line: When we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, confess and profess, by declaring at the top of our lungs, with all of our might and all of our strength, even shouting it from the rooftops of the places we work, live and dwell in, that Jesus Christ is The One and Only Son of The One and Only True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, we then, effectually, are sending a clear and direct message to anyone and everyone, anywhere and everywhere, anytime, all the time and every time, that we are undaunted, unafraid and unashamed, to let all of humankind, (no matter who they may be or what kind of influence or power they may wield) know, undisputedly, in Whom we believe, confess and profess and have put our complete faith, hope and trust in, as LORD and Savior!

The most wonderful and marvelously blessed, as well as being a gloriously splendid and miraculous result is: we have The Spirit of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty living and dwelling within the within of our innermost beings and our eternal abode is forever with, and in His Everlasting Glorious Presence!

Reminder note to self and everyone else: Remember the words of The LORD, when He was speaking to His disciples, before He sent them out to minister: ““Everyone who acknowledges me publicly here on earth, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. But everyone who denies me here on earth, I will also deny before my Father in heaven.” (‭‭Matthew‬ ‭10:32-33‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Shout it from the rooftops! Blessings…

Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/10- “Fix Your Resolute Gaze And Focus Upon The LORD GOD Almighty!” (Psalms 16:8)

Premise Questions: Who is it, that keeps me safe and sound? Where do I run to for refuge? Who alone is my wonderful inheritance and cup of blessing? Who diligently guards, with great efficacy, all that is mine? Who is it, that is ever faithful and true to always guide and instruct me? Who is it, that will never leave or forsake me, no matter come what may? Who is it, that knows me better than anyone else ever has or ever will? Who is it, that I know that I know, being fully assured and completely certain, is absolutely always with me, right by my side, keeping me steadfast and stable?

“I know the LORD is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.” (‭Psalms‬ ‭16:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

I shall hold and maintain a keen sense of awareness, having a constant and fixed attentive gaze, upon The LORD GOD Almighty; being ever tuned into His presence that surrounds me on every side. I’m wont to have Him close by my side, therefore, I hold Him in the highest regard and place of honor; for The LORD GOD Almighty’s ever present help is indispensable to me in my daily walk. And when walking with Him, there’s nothing that can ever harm or separate me from His eternal purpose and presence. (Psalms 16:8 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The answer to all of the premise questions is: It is The LORD GOD Almighty, The Creator of Heaven and earth, who is a strong tower of refuge, strength and safety, that the righteous can run into for protection, and there, find complete peace and refreshing rest.

The LORD GOD Almighty is The One who is my ultimate prize and eternal reward, my Blessed Hope, my cup of salvation and gloriously splendid, wonderful inheritance.

The LORD GOD Almighty is The One who can keep, guard and guarantee delivery to me, all that is promised and divinely destined to be mine.

The LORD GOD Almighty is The Faithful and True Shepherd, The One who leads, guides and instructs me, and will always provide for me.

It is The LORD GOD Almighty that has promised to never leave or forsake me, no mater what may happen or come my way.

It is The LORD GOD Almighty that knows me better than anyone else ever has or ever will, as He already knew me even before I was being formed, by Him, in my mother’s womb! And, it was He, that divinely designed and knitted each and every one of the unique and wonderfully complex parts of my being together, in perfect symmetry!

And finally, it is The LORD GOD Almighty that always, without exception, every time, all the time, is right by my side, helping me to stay resolute, calm, cool and collected, steadfast, stable and strong, never dissuaded, always persuaded, never shaken, swayed or rattled, nor ever losing my conviction and confidence, because I know that I know, He is always by my side, ready, willing and more than able to help and assist me in every way.

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/10- “The Hope Of Humankind, Jesus Christ—The Sovereign LORD Of All!” (Romans 15:13)

Premise Question: Who is the true source of real joy and perfect peace, and what are we, The Company of The Redeemed specifically called, with expectation, to do with it?

“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.” (‭‭Romans‬ ‭15:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

May Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, who is the fountainhead of all comfort, strength and hope, fill you beyond capacity, even to overflowing, with His great rejoicing joy and His harmonious tranquil peace; as you place your complete believing faith and utter reliance upon Him, Jesus Christ—The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty of all. In so doing, you, shall continually be a refreshing, effervescent flowing, fountain of life, filled with real hope, for all those who are full of anguish and despair, feeling dismayed and discouraged, rejected and dejected, desperately barren and brittle, dehydrated, drained and dry, without any prospects of real hope upon the horizon. This real hope, that fills you to overflowing, is The Blessed and only real Hope of humankind. And, it will never disappoint, falter nor fail, for it is fully endowed and supplied, by the overwhelming, more than sufficient power, of The Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, each and every member of The Company of The Redeemed, are all called to be filled completely, even to overflowing, with the releasing, refreshing joy and perfect peace of Papa God; who is the veritable fountainhead and true life-giving source of real hope.

Then, we are to carry this precious presence of the Blessed Hope of refreshing and renewing joy, that is within us, to a world that lacks hope and is desperately searching for relief, refreshing, renewal, with a sense of wanting to know why they are here, where and how they fit in, and what their reason and purpose for being here is.

Let’s all become more aware and in tune, making sure that we are being filled to overflowing, each and every day, with the veritable presence of The Holy Spirit—The Blessed Hope, in our lives, so that we will become an effervescent fountain of life, that flows out of our lives and into the world; touching the hurting, the helpless, the hopeless, the needy, the searching and the discouraged and dismayed, with the renewing and refreshing joy and perfect peace of Papa God, The only real Hope of humankind, The Blessed Hope—Jesus Christ, who is the true, life-giving, Fountain of Life! 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- 08/06- “Live Your Life With Eternity In View!” (Colossians 3:1-2)

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- 07/17- “Listen Up Soul, I’m Talking To You!” (Psalm 103:1-2)

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: 07/17- “Listen Up Soul, I’m Talking To You!” (Psalm 103:1-2)

Premise Question: Why is it so vitally important, being an absolute necessity, from time to time, to have a serious sit down conversation with ourselves?

“Let all that I am praise the LORD; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me.” (‭‭Psalms‬ ‭103:1-2‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Listen up, I’m talking to you, the seat of all my emotions, feelings and thoughts, my very soul…with a grateful and most affectionate heart, praise and worship The LORD GOD Almighty; I command you, at the very core and essence of my existence, the most intimate part of my being, within the within, to worship and venerate His Holy Name, which is the only name that is entitled and worthy of such honor. And another thing! ‘You still talking to me?’ Yes, my soul, so pay close attention; praise and worship The LORD with your whole being, and never fail or neglect to recount and remember every one of His great and helpful advantageous benefits He continually blesses and provides us, as our Healer, our Rock, our Shelter, our Comforter, providing abundantly for all of our daily needs. (Psalm 103:1-2 PDCP)

Bottom Line: An absolute must for all of us, from time to time, is to have a serious sit down introspective, reflective, meditative and contemplative direct conversation with ourselves—our soul. We should, with diligence, do this, in order to get ahold of ourselves, so as to keep ourselves straightened out, making sure we that we don’t stray, but continue to stay on the straight and narrow way, the path that leads us to everlasting joy, peace and an abundantly flourishing life, in this life, and in the life to come!

King David gives us a wonderful picture, a great example of the importance of having a direct conversation with ourselves, by telling his own self to get in line with The LORD’S Word and purpose for his life; which is to worship and praise The LORD with everything that is within us and to never forget to recount the long list of good things that The LORD has done for us, by ever thanking and praising Him!

Here is the huge list of just what The LORD has done for us. Check it out for yourself, as it immediately follows verse 2 of Psalms 103: The LORD forgives, heals, redeems, crowns, fills, renews, gives, reveals, removes, loves.

I encourage you to carefully read, consider and then meditate upon the entire 103rd Psalm, in order to get the whole picture of what The LORD has done, is doing and will do for all those who believe and are His very own beloved children. Also look at Psalms 42:5,11 and 43:5, as well as, the words of the Apostle Paul in Philippians 4:4, and the incredibly encouraging words of Jesus in The Gospel of John 14:1,27.

Listen up soul! Yes, I’m talking to you! Pay close attention to what I’m telling you! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/26- “Hold On Tight!” (Hebrews 10:23)

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: 06/26- “Hold On Tight!” (Hebrews 10:23)

Premise Question: What is our blessed hope and the great promise that we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, are urgently, and with great insistence, compelled to grasp on to tightly and to not ever consider letting go of, no matter what may come our way?

Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. (‭Hebrews‬ ‭10‬:‭23‬ NLT)

Grasp, with a firm tight grip, never letting go of or deviating one iota from your declared profession of allegiance to the blessed, fully assured expectation of the complete realization of our hopeful promise; because, The One True Sovereign All Powerful and Most Mighty Papa God, who is reliable and worthy of our entire trust, is The One who has made this hopeful promise to us and it is He, who will do due diligence to make sure it performs and satisfies completely all that it’s promised and expected to do. (Hebrews 10:23 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Our Blessed Hope is also our Redeemer, Savior, Healer, Baptizer, Comforter, our Helper, Succor, Provider, Shepherd, Pastor, Teacher, Brother and Friend.

ForHe is The Prince of Peace, The King of Kings, The LORD of Lords and The Great I Am—who was and is and is to come!

He has rescued and set us all free from the darkness, death, despair and sin that plagues us and has brought us into the radiance of His splendid light, right into His glorious presence!

The LORD fills us with a hope and expectation that gives us full assurance, with an absolute certitude, that we shall not ever be disappointed.

He is ever Faithful and True!

He was before the beginning and will be there long after the end!

We are therefore, urgently compelled, as He is quite insistent, that we are to hold on tight and to never let go of the hope that we have. Nor are we to ever waffle, waver, vacillate or fluctuate, no matter what may come our way or what we may have to face or endure.

But we are to be ever vigilant in continuing to grasp tightly to the promise that He’s left us with, which is, that one day, we will be spending all of eternity in the very presence of His Holiness and His Glorious Light! Blessings…
