SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/20- “Love That Endures!” (1Chronicles 16:34)

Premise Question: Just what are we, The Company of The Redeemed, to give thanks to The LORD for, and how are we to express our sincere gratitude and thanks to Him?

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.
(‭1 Chronicles‬ ‭16‬:‭34‬ NLT)

Show and express to The LORD your full gratitude, by offering up to Him, from a thankful heart, true spiritual praise and worship, honoring Him with reverential awe, for He is beneficently virtuous and righteous. His unfailing, undying, eternally enduring, unqualified and unparalleled, being incomparable love and gracious favor for us, which is expressed towards us continually, is permanently established and without measure. (1 Chronicles 16:34 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, every member of The Company of The Redeemed, should with great rejoicing, gladness and joy, as individuals and also collectively, as those who’ve been redeemed, shall in every way, by utilizing every kind of expression, ought to offer up continually, our deepest and greatest, most heartfelt gratitude of thanks; with our praise and worship of Him, and in our obedient walk and work for Him.

We are to announce and let it be known everywhere, far and wide, and close by, letting everyone in the whole earth know how much Papa God loves humankind and how grateful and thankful we, His people, are for all that The LORD has done, is doing and is yet to do for all of those who will believe and receive Him as LORD.

We, The Company of The Redeemed, praise and worship Him in His Holiness, for He is worthy to be praised, worshipped, honored and glorified! We lift His Name high, because His love, mercy and gracious favor endures throughout every generation, for He is faithful and true to every promise He has spoken in His Everlasting Word!

His goodness is filled with His great comfort, His all surpassing peace and the fullness of His joy, which is our strength!

His love, His mercy, His grace shall endure and shall not ever fail to do what He has sent it to do for His own precious creation!

People of Papa God, give thanks to The LORD, for He is good, He does all things well, His love endures forever and in His time, He makes all things beautiful! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/19- “Papa God’s Word Is The Source Of My Eternal Hope And He Is My Everlasting Refuge And Shield!” (Psalm 119:114)

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: 06/19- “Papa God’s Word Is The Source Of My Eternal Hope And He Is My Everlasting Refuge And Shield!” (Psalm 119:114)

Premise Question: When we, the people of Papa God, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, have individually made Papa God our refuge, our shield, and having fully accepted His Everlasting Word, as the source of our eternal hope and life; what do we, as the people of Papa God, in this life, ever have to worry about or fear?

You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope. (‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭114‬ NLT)

You, Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty of all, are my divine protector, my defender and safe shelter, from all danger and trouble; my escape from eternal death and destruction. You, Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty of all, are also my defensive shield against all attacks from the enemy of my soul, I am hidden within You, for You are my cover, my mighty armor; therefore, I have given You charge over me entirely, for I have confidently placed all of my aspirations and expectant hopes, for now and into the distant future, in Your faithful and true promises, which are the very expression of Your love, care and concern for me, Your Everlasting Living Word. (Psalm 119:114 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, as the people of Papa God, have nothing nor no one, to ever worry about or be fearful of! For when we make Papa God the place of our refuge, we are eternally safe and secure. When He is our refuge, He also becomes our shield and protector, our covering and armor and our true Champion defender.

When we place our complete faith and trust in His Everlasting Word, as the authentic source, being the fountainhead of of all that is holy, good and right; we have a hope that will not ever disappoint, as it is a sure and certain hope that will far exceed any and all expectations, that we could ever hope for or even begin to ever imagine.

So, after Papa God has become our refuge and shield. And His Everlasting Word has become the source of our eternal joy, life and hope. We must always H-O-P-E, by listening intently to Hear, His voice of hope—choose to Obey, His Word of hope—accept His Promises to live in hope, and then—to fully Enjoy the life of hope, He is ever faithful to provide us—The Company of The Redeemed!

People of Papa God, put your faith, put your hope, place all of your trust in Him! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/06- “Put To Death The Person You Once Were!” (Galatians 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: 06/06- “Put To Death The Person You Once Were!” (Galatians 2:20)

Premise Question: What is the most important decision that each one of us, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, must necessarily make on a daily basis?

My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. (‭Galatians‬ ‭2‬:‭20‬ NLT)

By my own free will, I have chosen to put to death the person I once was. I do this continually, each day, by personally choosing to identify with Christ’s crucifixion; and therefore, I lay my life down and die daily to my old self, and then, I follow Him only. For now, it is the life of Christ living inside of me that leads, guides, directs, motivates and sustains every part of my life, spirit, soul and body. My existence, as I live and breathe here on this earth, is now lived out of my faith and my complete trust placed in Jesus Christ, The One and only Son of The One True Sovereign Papa God, who showed His love for me, by personally laying His life down; thereby, immediately paying the ransom required and demanded, for the redemption of my life. (Galatians 2:20 PDCP)

Bottom Line: There comes a time, in the life of every believer, when, with much humility and sincerity, a decision must and should be made, to no longer live for one’s own desires and pleasures. For that time, at the moment of our salvation, has already come and past and should be long gone; the time where one lives their life for and only unto themselves, being self-centered, self-indulged and completely self-consumed.

So, it is therefore, much wiser and much more prudent, to put to death the old flesh and self-life and allow the new life and walk of faith to come fully alive, along with the wonderful blessings and benefits attached to living a new self-less life, and no longer living the flesh self-life; which only produces dire curses and consequences.

Because Christ now lives in me, and I now live my life in Christ, He lives in me, through me and for others! This is the most important decision that we, as believers and members of The Company of The Redeemed, must necessarily make each and every day of our lives! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/26- “The Joy Of Discipline!” (Psalms 94:12-13)

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: 05/26- “The Joy Of Discipline!” (Psalms 94:12-13)

Premise Question: Why is it, that those who are disciplined by The LORD, are full of His joy and completely satisfied, in the process?

Joyful are those you discipline, LORD, those you teach with your instructions. You give them relief from troubled times until a pit is dug to capture the wicked. (‭Psalms‬ ‭94‬:‭12-13‬ NLT)

Blissfully and exuberantly happy, being entirely full of joy, completely contented and exorbitantly fortunate are those You choose to train, equip, chastise and exercise authority over, Sovereign LORD God Almighty; those You choose to impart wonderful revelation knowledge of and instruction in Your perfect, life-giving and established commands. You, Oh LORD, bestow and confer upon them Your great deliverance and release, from onerous times of distressing vexing afflictions and agitating harassments, even creating a place to capture, overwhelm and then hold, those who are morally reprehensible—the wickedly evil. (Psalm 94:12-13 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Understanding and accepting the premise, that The LORD only disciplines those that are His own and are loved by Him, discipline is not ever to be characterized as punishment or judgement, but to be seen as a critically important part of the process of growing, learning, being prepared, instructed and made ready for the divine purposes and will of Papa God.

His very instructions/commands, which are life-giving, bring us to life and then, fills us with an overwhelming joy for living a life that will be pleasing and honoring to Him!

His discipline is intentionally intense training in righteousness; so we should therefore, always be thankful, and gratefully embrace the process of learning, that sculpts and molds us to His liking, and then, we are to rejoice and be glad, while The LORD administers His loving discipline, for eventually, if we are patient and endure His discipline, we will be completely whole and mature, lacking nothing.

This process will include, learning to hike and traverse difficult mountains, enduring the climb, in order to reach the summit and take in the breathtaking view, only to then navigate the descent into the valley below, trudging and slogging through the depths of the valley of death and despair, as we are being prepared for the next hike up the next mountain.

Remember though, it is high upon the mountain top that The LORD BLESSES us! But, it is in the valley below that He BUILDS us up, in order to prepare us for the next mountain to climb!

We also can and should be, extremely joyful that He brings us relief and refreshing from all our difficult challenges and troubles, and will eventually take care of those who are causing us trouble, trial or tribulation!

The LORD is good to us, even in the midst of our most arduously difficult times, for The LORD is good all the time! 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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/11- “The LORD Revives Us With His Boundless Love and Fills Us With Joyful Expectation!” (Psalm 94:18-19)

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: 05/11- “The LORD Revives Us With His Boundless Love and Fills Us With Joyful Expectation!” (Psalm 94:18-19)

Premise Question: Thank The LORD that He is there to pick us up when we slip and slide or fail and fall down; but, why is it the case for many of us, that the only time we seem to call upon The Name of The LORD is when we are in utter despair or desperately in need of His help and assistance?

I cried out, “I am slipping!” but your unfailing love, O LORD, supported me. When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer. (‭Psalms‬ ‭94‬:‭18-19‬ NLT)

It was when I came to the full realization, O LORD, that I was absolutely loosing my grip in life, not able to hold on any longer, feeling like I had completely lost my bearings and was literally coming apart at the seams, having lost any semblance of sure footing on the extremely slippery slope I was trying to negotiate, that I began to call upon Your Name with a great sense of urgency; lamenting out loud, with tortured and grievous tears. It was then, at that very moment, that I began to experience Your great love washing over for me, wave after wave, it overwhelmed and undergirded me, steadying my walk and calming my mind, by removing all uncertainty, worry and angst from my mind and deep within me, with Your boundless and great consoling love, which brought exhilarating joy and a complete reviving of an expectation of optimism back into my life! (Psalm 94:18, 19 PDCP)

Bottom Line: It truly is a wonderful blessing, honor and privilege to be able to call upon The Name of The LORD in our times of turmoil, trial, trouble and terrible tribulations—our times of distress and despair, when we are entirely fraught, being full of doubts and desperation, for it is then, that He will surely overwhelm us with His unfailing love; filling us with exhilarating joy and reviving in us an expectation of optimism, by renewing our spirit and completely restoring our soul.

We should make it our common practice, though, to not just call, upon The Name of The LORD, when we are in trouble or need! But at all times, on all occasions, in every situation and circumstance; whether it’s in good times or bad times, high times or low times, up or down, even during times when we have all that we have need of, as well as, during those times that we may have little of or not have anything of what we are lacking and in great need of.

The LORD has promised to answer us when we call. (Jeremiah 33:3) He’s told us that when we call upon Him to not be afraid or fearful. (Lamentations 3:57)

He has encouraged us to seek Him and call upon His Name while He is near. (Isaiah 55:6)

He has commanded us to be at peace and instructed us to be still. (Psalm 46:10)

We are to always be full of and expressing The joy of The LORD, being considerate towards others, not worrying about anything, but praying about everything; telling The LORD what we need and always being thankful to Him and constantly keeping our focus on Him, while serving and doing good to others. (Philippians 4:4-9)

Call on The Name of The LORD everyday, at all times, on every occasion, in every circumstance and situation and fully experience His boundless love, being revived and renewed and being filled with an overwhelming expectation of optimism and joy! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/04- “Trusting And Relying On The LORD!” (Proverbs 3:5-6)

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: 05/04- “Trusting And Relying On The LORD!” (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Premise Question: Can we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, have a confident assurance and real expectation, of actually being able to successfully navigate our life, without having the great privilege and honor, the tools and benefits, of the leading, guiding, impactive and direct influence that The LORD’S Word, His Spirit and diligent fervent prayer provides us, which for all of us, is our divine compass, sextant and GPS?

Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭3‬:‭5-6‬ NLT)

Place your faith and complete confidence in, and your utter reliance upon, The LORD—in total abandonment, holding nothing back or kept hidden in the deep recesses of your heart in reserve. Don’t ever find yourself choosing to rely solely upon your own way of thinking; in the way you see and perceive things, in order to get yourself through life. But, always remember to acknowledge The LORD in everything you do or attempt to do in life; surrendering and yielding every part and partial of your life to Him. Then, and only then, will The LORD Himself pilot and guide you through life, on an upright course that will follow the correct path, which will establish a safe and successful arrival at your desired destination at life’s journeys end. (Proverbs 3:5-6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: There are a myriad of sources we can choose from to be influenced and guided by in our lives. Some may seem quite logical, extremely viable, good or may even tickle our fancy and appeal to our inclinations or predilection. As The LORD’S Word clearly delineates, though, there is a way and path set before each person that appears to be the best way to go, but when chosen, only leads to death and destruction. (Proverbs 14:12) His Word also tells us, that fools will always think and believe the way they are going and what they are doing, is right, and will therefore, not be open to wise counsel. But again, it only leads to a horrible ending. (Proverbs 12:14)

The LORD gives everyone a choice! The decision and choice we make determines whether we will experience blessings or curses, life or death. (Deuteronomy 11:26, 30:19)

Let us make the wisest and absolutely the most prudent of decisions, by always deliberately choosing to place our total faith and trust, relying only on and in The LORD and His faithful, hope filled, leading, guiding and correct direction, by completely relying on His Word, The Holy Spirit and our fervent prayer; which is our divine compass, sextant and heavenly GPS for successfully navigating this life! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/22- “Papa God’s Sacred Word Teaches And Trains Us, Giving Us Hope And Encouragement!” (Romans 15:4)

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: 04/22- “Papa God’s Sacred Word Teaches And Trains Us, Giving Us Hope And Encouragement!” (Romans 15:4)

Premise Question: Besides Papa God’s Sacred Word teaching and training us, and giving us hope and encouragement, what is the prima facie purpose, for us to fulfill, as a result of what it does in our lives?

Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled. (‭Romans‬ ‭15‬:‭4‬ NLT)

The particular matters of this kind, of how we ought to view, treat and consider others, were specifically addressed in the distant past—the ancient times, as they were faithfully recorded and written down in Papa God’s Sacred Word, for the express purpose of training, teaching and imparting helpful knowledge to us. For it is Papa God’s Sacred Word that furnishes us with the anticipation of a hope filled expectancy, that’s full of inspiration and helpfulness, and that’s constantly cheering us on and building us up in our most Holy faith; which also enables and empowers us to continue bravely, with a serene calmness, to endure and not give up, but to wait for the expressed assurances, Papa God’s promises, that are clearly delineated in His Sacred Word, to come to pass, being fully accomplished in our lives and the lives of others. (Romans 15:4 PDCP)

Bottom Line: First and foremost, it is my ultimate desire to please Papa God, by doing His will and fulfilling His divine purpose for my life! In so doing, though, I always want to be an encouragement and refreshing inspiration to others; a veritable fountain of effervescent life, a continuous flow of encouragement and hope.

I want to teach and train others to rely on Papa God’s Sacred Word, as the life giving source and flow of goodness into their lives, for everything good right and helpful.

After all, we don’t live for ourselves, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, but as servants and friends of The Most High! We now live to honor Him and to serve others, in order to help build up and encourage them in their faith, with a hopeful expectation in The LORD.

So, we must refuse to ever allow any insults, of any kind, to dissuade us from ardently pursuing the accomplishment of always being an encouraging, helpful, refreshing inspiration, a veritable effervescent fountain of life, to others! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/19/15- “God Is Personally With Us!” (Isaiah 7:14)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/19/15- “God Is Personally With Us!” (Isaiah 7:14)

Premise Question: What meaning does The Prophet Isaiah’s prophecy, concerning The Savior of humankind, have and hold for us today?

“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, being afraid to trust and try The LORD, per His direct request and command to you, and because you are also full of false humility, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty Himself will affix His personal signature to a confirming manifestation, a sign, with the message of redemption, 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 a man, will become pregnant, without ever having been with a man, and she shall bring forth and deliver, by giving birth too, The Deliverer and Savior of humankind, for He is The Divine Immaculate only Son of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, and she will call Him by this Name, Immanuel, which means, God is personally with us. (Isaiah 7:14 PDCP)

Bottom Line: What the prophet Isaiah was prophesying and looking forward to, we now can look back to, as we are now given the opportunity to be able to personally experience everyday, the wonderful peace, the glorious manifestation and everlasting presence of The LORD Jesus Christ, The Redeemer of humankind, by and through The Spirit of Papa God Himself, being in our daily lives, and then, throughout all of eternity! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 03/09/15- “A Reason To Live!” (John 10:10)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 03/09/25- “A Reason To Live!” (John 10:10)

Premise Question: Is there really only one gate, by which one can gain entrance, into The Kingdom of God, to experience a completely satisfying, blissfully filled, with eternal joy, everlasting life?

The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. (‭John‬ ‭10‬:‭10‬ NLT)

There are those who will try and draw you away and unto themselves for their own self-satisfying desires, but they are nothing but cheap swindlers and their intent is to plunder, sabotage, annihilate and then, slaughter you. I, The LORD, on the other hand, have only a desire and divine mission of providing and giving you a life that’s abundantly filled with gratifying joy and eternal pleasures, forevermore. (John 10:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: There’s no use in trying to circumvent, by trying to gain entrance into The Kingdom of God surreptitiously. One will not get in, but by going through “The Gate!” You can’t go under, around or over the top, you must go through it. Attempting to gain entrance by any other way is futile. It will not work! After all, what is the alternative to going through “The Gate” and experiencing everything promised, therein? The alternative is a life wasted, one that’s taken for a ride that ends in disaster, plundered, deprived and destroyed. Much better to choose a life that refreshes, is satisfying and fulfilling, and that, forevermore. Choose Jesus Christ, “The Gate” to eternal life! Blessings…
