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: 04/02- “He Endured It All, For All!” (Isaiah 53:5)

Premise Question: Did the prophet Isaiah get it right, in regard to the absolute specifics, of his descriptive prognostications, of what The Anointed One would have to go through, on behalf of humankind, in order for them to be restored to a right relationship and fellowship with Papa God, The Creator?

But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭53‬:‭5‬ NLT)

It was not for His own transgressions, that The Savior’s head was punctured with a crown of thorns and His side run through with a soldier’s spear, but for each of our own transgressions and evil deeds; nor was He humiliated, shamed, pounded with fists and severely bruised, for His sin, for He was without sin, but for ours. He took such a beating for us, that He became completely unrecognizable, by taking upon Himself the punishment and chastening meant for us, in order, that we might have the ability to be in a righteous, being full of peace and joy relationship, while experiencing sweet fellowship with Papa God, The Creator. He, The LORD, took and received the blows of a vicious and most nefarious whip, as He was flogged and thrashed with a lash, on our behalf, for our healing. (Isaiah 53:5 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We all should daily be continually giving thanks, with a heart filled with gratitude, for what Papa God and His Son, our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ has done for each one of us, by choosing to go through and joyfully endure, all that He did. The prophet Isaiah was completely one hundred percent correct, being exact, in every detail of his future prognostications, concerning The Anointed One! He was punctured and pierced: (John 19:2,34, Matthew 27:29) He was humiliated, shamed and beaten with fists: (Matthew 26:67-68, 27:28-30) He was whipped for our healing: (John 19:1, Matthew 27:26, 1Peter 2:24) He is, without any doubt, The King of kings! The LORD of Lords, The Redeemer and Savior, of humankind! He endured it all, taking a pounding, undeserved, for all of us, who do deserve all chastisement and punishment, but He took it upon Himself, by taking our place. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 03/28- “Nothing, Nor No One, Will Ever Have The Wherewithal To Keep Or Remove Us From Papa God’s Love!” (Romans 8:39)

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: 03/28- “Nothing, Nor No One, Will Ever Have The Wherewithal To Keep Or Remove Us From Papa God’s Love!” (Romans 8:39)

Premise Question: Is there anything anywhere, known or unknown, that would ever have the capability or capacity, to keep or separate us, any member of The Company of The Redeemed, against possessing and experiencing the complete joy, true freedom and the fullness of mercy and grace, with all the promised accompanying benefits therein, by removing, preventing or taking us away, from Papa God’s unfailing love, shown toward us through His Son, our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ?

No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭39‬ NLT)

There isn’t a power, authority or influence, known or unknown to humankind, whether they be in the heavens and firmament above, to include, even beyond the known universe, or on the terra firma, the earth and the entirety of Papa God’s creation below, for there’s not any person, some place or anything in existence, that will ever have the wherewithal, to keep us from or tear us away, by severing the tie that binds and holds us to Him, in any degree or to any extent, whatsoever, from Papa God’s all powerful, never failing, great care, and His perfect love that He has for us; for He has clearly made it known, by putting on display, for all of creation to see, how much He truly loves us, showing and declaring it through His Son, our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:39 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The quick and succinct answer to the Premise Question: Nope! Nada! Nil! Nought! Zip, zero, zilch, zot! It’s non-existent! It doesn’t exist, hasn’t ever existed and won’t ever exist! Not in the sky above, the earth below, nor in all of creation! Thank You Papa God! Thank You LORD Jesus! And thank You Holy Spirit! Be encouraged and greatly assured and blessed. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 03/21- “Freedom To Serve In Love” (Galatians 5:13)

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: 03/21- “Freedom To Serve In Love” (Galatians 5:13)

Premise Question: What is the greatest temptation, for the most part, given the blessings that have been bestowed upon us here in America, that The Church has to overcome, in order to fulfill the reason and purpose Papa God has given us the freedom we enjoy?

For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. (‭Galatians‬ ‭5‬:‭13‬ NLT)

The freedom that Papa God has granted all of us to experience, enjoy and live in, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, was not given to us so that we could spend it all upon ourselves, by satisfying and gratifying our own sinful desires of the flesh. Rather, though, it’s been given to us so that we would be fully equipped, with every provision, in order to have the necessary capacity and ability to love and serve others, with the blessings of our freedom. (Galatians 5:13 PDCP)

Bottom Line: I truly believe that The Church in America has been especially blessed, even to the extreme, for the specific divine purpose and reason of having the great ability to bless and reach those who are less fortunate. I believe that Papa God has blessed and given The Church in The United States of America a fiduciary trust. He desires that we be and do good, by being honorable and faithful steward servants, in utilizing what He’s given us to reach and bless those, first, who are amongst us, then, those who are outside the church, and finally, to the rest of the world. So, we’ve been given a choice of how we are going to use our new found freedom and blessings: #1) We can choose to enjoy and use the blessings of our freedom, by spending the biggest portion upon ourselves, building our own kingdoms, by satisfying and fulfilling our own desires, goals and dreams. Or, instead, #2) We can choose to use our new found freedom to love and serve others, by meeting their needs, helping them with an opportunity to get on the path that enables them to experience freedom, and then, to succeed in life; thereby, fulfilling Papa God’s commands, His will and purpose, and one of the main reasons He granted us freedom in the first place, which, if we’ll do, will be highly pleasing to Him. And that’s a good thing! Let’s begin to inquire of The LORD, as to what He wants us to spend and use our freedom and blessings on, rather than always lavishly spending it all upon ourselves. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/11/15- “Let The Life-Giving Message Of Jesus Christ, Fill You To Overflow, To Fill And Flow To Others!” (Colossians 3:16)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/11/15- “Let The Life-Giving Message Of Jesus Christ, Fill You Up To Overflow, To Fill And Flow To Others!” (Colossians 3:16)

Premise Question: What is most important, being the most critical issue and aspect to consider and focus on, concerning and surrounding the delivery of Papa God’s life-giving rich message, to those we’ve been called to personally and collectively share it with and exhibit it towards; the clear rich message of Jesus Christ, or the method in which the message is delivered?

Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. (‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭16‬ NLT)

Allow the Good News of Christ to permanently reside, in an abundant supply, deep within the within of each of you. Then, as you continue to impart His great wisdom, by your excellent example and through superior instruction, to one another, do it with caution and reproof, encouraging the reciting, recounting and singing of the Psalms, hymns and spiritual songs of The Lord, declaring and proclaiming through them, all of His great and wonderful exploits; do this always, with a heart that expresses a deep conviction and great appreciation, being filled with gratitude and thanksgiving for all the kindnesses and benefits Papa God has shown you! (Col. 3:16 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The message of Jesus Christ has always, is always and shall forever be, the most critically vital part of the equation! Methods will always come and go, ever changing and being modified for different reasons, which may include, but is not entirely inclusive to; the culture, people groups, the times, seasons, society, but the message of Christ will always trump, triumph and transcend them all! For His message never grows old, gets stale or becomes outdated or irrelevant! The method is simply the current vehicle, mode and manner, in which the never changing, always fresh, ever relevant, being culturally diverse and completely appropriate and effective way, for us, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, to successfully carry the life-giving message of Jesus Christ to the masses, who are in fact, in great need of Papa God’s rich life-giving message. The apostle Paul said that he became all things to all men, so that some might be saved! (1 Corinthians 9:22) Paul also intrigued the Greek Scholars with a reference and recognition to their homage statue idol to an “unknown” God! (Acts 17:23) And the writer of the epistle to The Hebrews declared, by quoting Papa God’s Holy Writ, that Jesus Christ, The Messiah, was the same yesterday, today and forever! He’s not going to change and neither is His life-giving message, but His methods, well, they may be subject to change! (Hebrews 13:8) Whatever method or style we may choose to utilize, in spreading, sharing and showing the life-giving, rich in love, message of Christ, let it always be done with the love of Papa God and in such a way, as to bring all glory and honor to Papa God and His Son, our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/24/15- “Obey “THIS” Law! Servants Of The Most High!” (Galatians 6:2)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/24/15- “Obey “THIS” law! Servants Of The Most High.” (Galatians 6:2)

Premise Question: What is, “THIS” law, and why is all the focus specifically on, “THIS” law?

Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.
(Galatians‬ ‭6‬:‭2‬ NLT)

Help those who’ve been waylaid by the vicissitudes of life or even their own faults, missteps or misgivings, by offering to assist them, with a helping hand and the love, comfort and compassion of The LORD; in so doing, you will show that you are allowing The Law of Christ to control you, in the way and manner, in which, you respond to those who are experiencing difficulties, in their lives. (Galatians 6:2 PDCP)

Bottom Line: What is, “THIS” law? It is the law of love, hope and compassion, The Law of Christ; which is, to show His love, hope and compassion, with gentleness and long suffering, toward others, by expressing His love, hope and compassion, in acts of kindness, and service toward those who are experiencing difficult circumstances and times, in their lives, suffering with afflictions, being overwhelmed with anxiety, misfortune, or may have even been overcome by a moral failure, their own faults or some hardship. And, why all the focus on “THIS” specific law? Because if we are not fulfilling “THIS” law, The Law of Christ, then, nothing else matters and we end of being cursed by not fulfilling “THIS” law of love, hope and compassion, The Law of Christ! For when all is said and done, the only thing that really matters, is our faith in Christ expressing itself in love, hope and compassion, in helping and serving others! (Galatians 1:10, 5:6b, 14, 2:16c) Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/20/15- “So, You Say You Want To Be Happy!” (Psalm 119:2)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/20/15- “So, You Say You Want To Be Happy!”
(Psalm 119:2)

Premise Question: What can you do, that will, as a direct result, cause you to experience true authentic joy and happiness, each and every day of your life, no matter what you may presently be facing and enduring or at any future time in your life, what you may have to go through?

Joyful are those who obey his laws and search for him with all their hearts. (‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭2‬ NLT)

The direct result, of coming into agreement and compliance with Papa God’s Holy Laws, of loving and pursuing Him, as a life long “Holy Quest,” with your whole heart, soul, mind and body, and, by loving others as yourself, will produce an effervescence of rapturous, jubilant and gratifying joy, in your innermost being, the very essence of who you are. (Psalm 119:2 PDCP)

Bottom Line: There’s really only one answer to the Premise Question: Love Papa God and love people, everywhere! The follow up evidence, that one is actually doing this, is found in the next verse of Psalm 119, verse 3: They do not compromise with evil, and they walk only in his paths. (‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭3‬ NLT)
Let’s do this, people of Papa God and servants of The Most High LORD, everywhere! What have we got to lose? What we have to gain, is true, authentic real joy and a life filled with happiness and the joy of The LORD! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/14/15- “No Greater Love!” (John 15:13)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/14/15- “No Greater Love!” (John 15:13)

Premise Question: Are there illustrious examples today, that are clearly seen, being put on display, exemplified and recognized, before our very own eyes and ears, that show this kind and level, of the extreme ultimate expression, of sacrificial love, where all is given for another, without expectation of a return, and with nothing held in reserve, for one’s own regard?

There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. (‭John‬ ‭15‬:‭13‬ NLT)

There never has been, nor will there ever be, a more significant or magnificent display, of the ultimate expression, of true, selfless, sacrificial love, than when someone chooses to lay down their own life, in service and ultimately death, for another. (John 15:13 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Absolute YES! The LORD Jesus Christ is, of course, the greatest example of “No Greater Love,” as He not only laid down His life voluntarily, giving His life, as the ultimate perfect sacrifice, for the redemption of humankind, but He also gave up the splendor and majesty of His heavenly throne, humbling Himself, by taking off His regal robes of glory and descending to earth to become just like us, experiencing life in human form and on an earthly level; so that, He could, by laying His life down for us, renew, restore and reconcile us back to Papa God, to forever live in His presence.

The great examples of this kind and expression of love today, I believe, is seen in the way soldiers volunteer to serve their country, family, friends and fellow citizens, willing to lay their lives down in service and death for their fellow soldiers and others. It is also, I believe, seen in the lives of first responders, who daily are asked, by fellow citizens, to put their lives on the line for others, without regard for their own safety. There are many others that could be put up as wonderful examples, such as, all those, from different walks of life, that constantly put the care and welfare of the lives of others, before themselves, especially those who put themselves in harms way, when dealing with those who are sick, with infirmities, are weak and diseased, without personal regard for themselves.

We all, as fellow believers, ought to be willing to put our lives on the line, in serving and dying for others, for there is no greater example of our love for one another, than this: to be willing to die for another. Blessings…
