SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/10- “Jesus Christ—The One True Light Of The World!” (John 1:8)
Premise Question: What is the divine calling, that each member of The Company of The Redeemed has now received from Papa God, in regards to The Light of the world?
“John himself was not the light; he was simply a witness to tell about the light.” (John 1:8 NLT)
The one known as John The Baptizer, was not The Anointed One who would come into the world as The One True Light and giver of new life; for John’s specific and divine calling, from Papa God, was to simply announce the Good News, to the world, as the foremost herald and ambassador, the expert witness, of The One True Light of the world. (John 1:8 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, have now been given the same divine calling that was given to John The Baptizer, which also comes from Papa God and is, that we should all be heralds, ambassadors and expert witnesses, announcing and declaring to the whole world, vigorously and with a sense of great urgency, that Jesus Christ is The One True Light of the world; the giver of life and The Only Hope of all humankind.

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/31- “Papa God’s Holy Light Living Inside Of Us!” (John 8:12)
Premise Question: Is it possible for a person to be unaware that they’re even unaware of the darkness and depravity they’re living in, even to the point of fully believing, thinking, determining and then accepting, that the darkness and depravity that they’re living in is full of light and life; when in reality, is actually full of eternal death, annihilation and utter destruction?
“Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” (John 8:12 NLT)
When Jesus again, began to address those who had gathered in the temple courts, at the break of dawn, to hear Him teach and expound upon the Scriptures; He declared unto them without equivocation, but with exactness and clarity, “I Am the resplendent radiance and source of all life and light in the world! For I Am not only the igniter and spark of life, but the total illumination of all enlightenment. I Am the blaze that has been burning even before time began, as the eternal flame, never to be extinguished holy fire of The Almighty Sovereign LORD GOD! Therefore, whoever chooses to pursue Me, with their whole being, spirit, soul and body, will never be hopelessly lost; stumbling around in the darkness and depravity of this world, with it’s perverse system, but will have Papa God’s Holy Light, living inside of them, leading, guiding and directing their steps, in this life.” (John 8:12 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Yes! I believe it is possible to be so unaware of your surroundings that you are completely deluded and deceived and literally unaware that you are in darkness, without the ability to clearly see or perceive the depth of depravity and darkness that is all encompassing, enveloping and pervading every part of your life!
It’s been said: “How great the darkness must be that is called light!” We are even warned about the evil one that may appear to be light and full of life, but in reality is only full of lies, deceit and empty promises of satisfaction and fulfillment, and only, always delivers a life full of shame, degradation, guilt, remorse, spiritual depravity, and ultimately, a loss of everything; leading to eternal death and separation from the glorious, full of tranquil peace and refreshing joy, of the presence of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty.
Thank You Papa God, that You sent The Light that shone in the land full of darkness and that the people living there in the darkness can now see The Light and be led out of the captivity and depravity of the darkness, to be completely set free, to walk, live and flourish, in The Light of Your presence; by having every step they take in this life, being directed, led and guided, by the presence of Your Light and Spirit living in them, to do Your will, fulfill Your purpose and to be pleasing to You in all that they will ever do and say.
Dear Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, Light of the world, shine Your Light through all of us, into this world and into the lives of those that are being held captive, in its darkness and depravity, in order to bring release and deliverance to all those who are unaware that they’re even unaware of the depth of the darkness and depravity, that is having a huge influence and significant impact upon them! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/28- “Get Right And Stay Right—By Daily Walking And Staying In The Light!” (1 John 1:7)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/28- “Get Right And Stay Right—By Daily Walking And Staying In The Light!” (1 John 1:7)
Premise Question: Beyond being able to live in Papa God’s Holy Light, (even as Papa God is in The Light and in Him there is no darkness) as a result of receiving Papa God’s provision of salvation and a cleansing from all of our sin, and then, having the wonderful opportunity of enjoying great fellowship with others who are also living in Papa God’s Holy Light, what is it then, that we should be doing?
“But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7 NLT)
But, if you really want to be able to see where you’re going (headed) in life, without stumbling around in the dark, you’ll need to make it your daily habitual practice to live and walk in the light of Papa God’s holy presence—His Son, Jesus Christ, as He is the pure essence and only true source of Papa God’s holy light; being the authentic personification and exact representation of His Father—The Only True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty! This then, allows us to experience true intimacy and close communion, not only with each other, but with The LORD GOD Almighty as well; because it is only the sacrificial blood of Jesus, Papa God’s only begotten Son, that washes us clean, purging and absolving us completely, clearing the way and paying the debt owed, by throughly removing all the shame, all the guilt and all of our transgressions of Papa God’s Holy Divine Righteous Law. (1 John 1:7 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Get right: by receiving and accepting Papa God’s most merciful and gracious provision of cleansing and salvation, through the shed blood of His Only Son, Jesus Christ—The Light of the world!
Stay right: by making it your daily habit and practice, (a way of life) to live and dwell, walk and work, everyday of your life, in Papa God’s Holy Light!
Don’t ever pull away, fade away, stray or walk away, out from under Papa God’s Holy Light, but always pray and continue to stay, deliberately dwelling, devotedly walking and diligently working, by choosing to always daily live in Papa God’s holy light, the presence of His Son—Jesus Christ!
For as Papa God is living in The Light of the world—His Only Son Jesus Christ, so too, is The Light of the world now living in us, who have been called out of darkness, into His glorious Light, to become the changed/transformed children of The Light, in order to shine bright in the darkness, to then draw others out of the darkness into Papa God’s Holy Light!
P-L-U-G (People Living Under God) into the L-I-G-H-T (Living In God’s Holy Tent) by daily living your life in the light and presence of The LORD!
We, The Company of The Redeemed, are now called to be His personal representatives, His ambassadors of hope and of His Holy Light to the world; and therefore, now should live our lives by and through the empowering presence of His Light living inside of us; allowing The Light to shine through us, so that everyone can clearly see Papa God’s Holy Light! Get right and stay right by daily walking, staying and living in The Light! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/10- “In The Struggle Between Light And Darkness—Light Wins!” (John 1:5)
Premise Question: Do we, as members of humankind, personally have any impact or bearing on the ultimate outcome of the struggle/battle between light (righteousness) and darkness (evil); what is our part, in the overall scheme, and how should we respond, to the outcome of said struggle?
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. (John 1:5 NLT)
The visible radiance of the illuminating light of the world, the person of Jesus Christ, The One True God, has come forth, shinning in all of His glorious splendor and magnificent brilliance, dispelling the darkness of the enemy of our souls, and its evil wickedness, dispatching, conquering and overcoming the darkness completely, because, in the conflict and struggle between light and darkness, light will always overwhelm and vanquish the darkness and is therefore, forever established as the victor. (John 1:5 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The only impact or bearing, if any at all, that we, humankind, have on the ultimate outcome of the struggle/battle between light and darkness, good and evil, righteousness and wickedness, is that we are one of, if not the primary, reasons the battle was waged. For it was an intense struggle/battle for our very souls!
But light, which already has and always will win the war between darkness and light, has triumphed over the darkness and everything within it; death included!
Jesus Christ is our Champion, our Victor and Conqueror, as He is The Light which has vanquished the darkness and every kind of evil that lives in the darkness. For the prince of darkness was no match for the glorious and Holy Light who is the origin of all that is good, Holy and righteous, for He is The Light sent into the world to dispel the darkness and rescue humankind from the clutches of the evil one, the enemy of our souls, who resides in the darkness.
Our part is to accept Papa God’s gracious and most merciful gift, His Son Jesus Christ, as our personal LORD and Savior. And, our privileged obligation and dutiful response should be to immediately and faithfully, empowered by His Spirit, to begin to live in His Light even as His Light lives in us and shines forth out of us and into the world, dispelling the darkness around us!
L-I-G-H-T- Living In God’s Holy Tent!
Here is an important caveat, a quote from a famous revivalist from the 20th Century, that we all need to seriously consider, with a heart of sincerity: “If you don’t do your part, don’t blame God.” Billy Sunday…
Let us therefore, rejoice and be glad, worshiping and praising Papa God, with hearts full of thanksgiving and gratitude, that our enemy has been defeated and completely vanquished, by The One True Light of the world, Jesus Christ, and because of that, we can now live victoriously in His Light! Blessings…
