SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/31- “You’re Not Encroaching, When Confidently Approaching, The Throne Of Grace!” (Hebrews 4:16)

Premise Question: What is the reason we now have personal access to the very throne room of The Almighty?

“So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most‭‭.” (Hebrews‬ ‭4:16‬ ‭NLT‬)

Armed with the wonderfully liberating knowledge, of who it is that has opened up the door, that now allows us, with courage and full confidence, to gain unfettered access into the very throne room and manifest presence of Papa God—The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, we all, members of The Company of The Redeemed, should now, therefore, fearlessly draw near to the throne of The Almighty, in order to exchange our bungled bankrupted lives for His benevolent tender mercies, and thereby, experience His unmerited gracious favor; which is the remedy, for not only our greatest need, but all our needs, and is given to us, in a timely manner, on time, every time and for all time. (Hebrews 4:16 PDCP)

Bottom Line: It’s all because of what our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ, The Son of The Most High, who is The Savior of humankind, accomplished for us, upon the cross, in the grave, and then, over death and in the great unknown and beyond; that we now have been granted personal access to bravely and confidently approach the very throne of grace, mercy and unfailing love of Papa God—The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, to receive the appropriate aid and help, at the right time, every time, in our time of need.

So, you’re not encroaching, when confidently approaching, Papa God’s throne of grace! Therefore, be thankful for this past year and hopeful for the new year upon us! Blessings…

“ABOVE ALL ELSE!” (Proverbs 4:23) repost from a year ago today…

Posted on Updated on

“ABOVE ALL ELSE!” (Proverbs 4:23)

It was forty years ago today that I was joined in holy matrimony to Cynthia Lynn Hill…We were blissfully, blisteringly, blusteringly and very much bless-fully enjoined together for twenty-eight years. Many good and great things came of and about, as a direct result of our union, but the greatest and certainly the most satisfying and endearing, has to be the three children, Robert Lyn, aka. Boomer, then later on, just Rob Bob, (he didn’t much prefer Boomer, probably because it was also the name of our boxer) Austin Lee, aka. Bubba, (which he said we could call him his whole life, if you are family or really close to him) Noele Helene, aka. Missy Muffy Lou, (and too many other nicknames to list, all quite cute and endearing) The seven grandchildren, so far, Jordan, aka. Lil Bub; Tyler, aka Ty-Bo-Bub; Dylan, aka. Final Bub, (NOT); Cannyon, aka. doesn’t need a nickname, as her real name is too cool; Eli, aka. Bubba Don, (resembles his papa Don); Banning, aka. Bubbies, (just one of numerous nicknames); and finally, Emily Grace, who also has many nicknames, but I call her Lady Bub! I am blessed beyond measure!

As I remember this day, the one thing that comes to my mind, in the form of a question, as being most important, over and above everything else is: Are you guarding your heart, and what is the present condition of your heart? I ask myself this question, quite often, and I ask it of everyone now, whether you be in my immediate family, extended family, friends, neighbors, associates and everyone else. The last thing Cynthia said to me and asked me, before she went to be with The LORD, was: “I know that my heart is completely free of all angst, worry, bitterness, resentment, for I have released and forgiven all hurts, insults and wounds, and I am now ready to meet The LORD!” And then she asked me if we were good and if I my heart was free? Thank The LORD, my heart is completely free, because of His mercy, grace and loving kindness.

Remember, and please take this to heart:
“There isn’t anything more important, in this life, than to make sure that your heart is free of all debris; because, everything else, in your life, is always going to be affected by the condition of your heart!” (Proverbs 4:23 PDCP)

“Above all else, keep your heart free of debris, flush the flesh and stay refreshed!” Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/12- “Papa God’s Unmerited Gracious Favor Is Revealed!” (Titus 2:11-12)

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: 06/12- “Papa God’s Unmerited Gracious Favor Is Revealed!” (Titus 2:11-12)

Premise Question: Why are we, The Company of The Redeemed, strongly admonished, with righteous and beneficial words of instruction, to reject godless living that’s filled with always wanting and seeking to please one’s carnal self; but conversely, though, are encouraged and exhorted to be consecrated, while living here in this world, by being fully dedicated and devoted to Papa God, with wisdom and righteous living, in order to be pleasing to Him?

For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people. And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God, (‭Titus‬ ‭2‬:‭11-12‬ NLT)

For the manifestation of Papa God’s unmerited favor, His mercy and grace, has become visibly clear for all of humankind to see and perceive, and His offering up of His only Son, Jesus Christ, upon the cross, which is an offer of redemption to everyone, should be joyfully celebrated, accepted and gladly received by all. Papa God has accomplished and made this possible by removing, in its entirety, the penalty of sin, which is utter destruction and damnation, being forever separated from His glorious presence and ultimately, eternal death. Papa God gives instruction to each of us, through His Holy Scriptures, on how to refrain from involving ourselves in insufferable, sinfully wicked acts and powerfully luring, seductively earthly, mundane pleasures, and He also gives us the power to live a life that restrains and denies the carnal self, thus giving us the ability to live a rectitude godly life, in this present age and the age to come, (Titus 2:11, 12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: There is this thought, for some, that Papa God has given these strong instructions, because He doesn’t want His children having any fun, or doesn’t want them to experience the real and many enjoyable pleasures of this world; for without them, life is just a bore, without any real satisfaction or enjoyment, being full of nothing but drudgery. Although this may be the thinking of some, it certainly is not the case! For Papa God desires that we experience the complete fullness of joy and all of the blessings and abundance this world has to offer.

Ungodly living and sinful pleasures may be enjoyable for a season, but once the season of planting seeds of sin is over, the resulting harvest surely comes, with all of the repercussions and resulting fruit in tow.

So, it’s for our own good and blessed benefit that we, The Company of The Redeemed, truly accept and follow closely, Papa God’s important instructions for living our lives here in this world, His divine plan of redemption for all of humankind, that He’s left us in His Holy Scriptures, The B-I-B-L-E- which stands for: Basic-Instructions-Before-Leaving-Earth.

Then, we shall forever be in the glorious and victorious eternal presence of our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ—Papa God Almighty! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/14- “Impossible To Measure Or Grasp!” (Isaiah 40:28)

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: 04/14- “Impossible To Measure Or Grasp!”
(Isaiah 40:28)

Premise Question: Today, in our contemporary Christian society and generation, how are we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, responding to these two presumed questions and real concepts, and do we fully accept the prophet Isaiah’s august declarations of absolute truth?

Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭40‬:‭28‬ NLT)

Are you trying to convey to me, that you are so woefully informed, that you’ve not ever been made aware of, or at any time in your life, that you’ve really never even overheard someone talk about The August Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty? And, are you furthermore, trying to feign complete ignorance, by saying you lack any knowledge or even a modicum of understanding? Well, whether or not you have ever heard of, or have any understanding of any of this, it still won’t ever change the fact and absolute truth, that The Sovereign LORD is The Everlasting Papa, The Almighty God and The Creator and Grand Divine Designer, of the entire realm, of the earth and everything therein. For it is He, who hasn’t ever, nor shall He ever, succumb to becoming frail, impotent, deficient, decrepit or diminished in any way or capacity; nor shall He ever be subject to being tired, fatigued, or exhausted mentally, physically, emotionally or spiritually spent. For the sheer magnitude of the degree and extent of who He is, is immeasurable; being impossible to get to the bottom of, and is also inestimable, being limitless, in scope and comprehension, and is, by far, way beyond our capacity or ability to grasp. (Isaiah 40:28 PDCP)

Bottom Line: I question, at times, if some in the present day modern contemporary Church, perhaps have come to the conclusion or may have come to surmise, that they are beyond needing to acknowledge or accept this august knowledge, with sincere discernment!

I wonder, if some may have lost their sense of urgency, of the absolutely crucial and necessary edict, to truly honor, with holy reverence, praise, worship and awe, The Almighty, for who He is! Are we now, prone to take it all in stride or maybe just for granted?

I feel very strongly, that we, still today, should be approaching and responding to these questions, concepts and declarations of truth, with the same urgency and holy reverence and awe that the prophet Isaiah did long ago!

There are times, though, that I’ve perceived an air of familiarity, accompanied, with a sense of entitlement, by those who approach Papa God. I’m not saying that we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, don’t have the privilege and honor of making requests and entreaties to The LORD GOD Almighty, for He Himself, has in His Holy Word, encouraged us to do just that!

But, when we approach Him, we need to come before Him in reverent awe and with an attitude of humility and contriteness; offering up to Him the honor, glory, praise and worship that’s due only Him!

We have and serve an Awesome Papa God! His grace, mercy and love is beyond measure and too magnificent to grasp! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/04- “The Spirit Of Papa God Gives Life!” (Romans 8:11)

Posted on Updated on

04/04-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: 04/04- “The Spirit Of Papa God Gives Life!” (Romans 8:11)

Premise Question: Besides the obvious and most excellent benefit of receiving everlasting life; what is the greatest benefit, being the most helpful one, for living our lives now, that we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, have received as a direct result of having The Spirit of Papa God living in our finite, being perishable, earthly bodies?

The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you. (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭11‬ NLT)

Not only have you been put right with Papa God, but when His Spirit, The Holy Spirit, which is the One who was charged with the responsibility of restoring life back into The Savior’s deceased earthly body, by raising Him up from the grave, has taken up permanent residence within you; then, you too shall have your finite, being temporal and perishable, earthly body restored back to life, in the very same way and manner that The LORD had His earthly body restored, as this also is accomplished by and through the same Spirit of Papa God that now lives and resides within the within of your innermost being. (Romans 8:11)

Bottom Line: The greatest benefit that we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, have and enjoy, is full, free and unfettered access to the empowering presence, comfort and refreshing, as well as, the divine guidance and wisdom of Papa God’s Spirit, The Holy Spirit; who helps us to overcome and be victorious in every area of our lives, but especially in the intense struggle that rages within each one of us between our old sinful nature and its desires and our new life and its new nature that desires to honor and please Papa God. Therefore, we ought to continually thank Papa God for His life giving Spirit that lives deep within the within of our innermost beings. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/12- “Forever Safe—In Papa God’s Hand!” (John 10:28-30)

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: 02/12- “Forever Safe—In Papa God’s Hand!”
(John 10:28-30)

Premise Question: Do believers, those who’ve placed their faith and complete trust in The LORD Jesus Christ, by calling on His Name through confession and believing in Him and His resurrection; thereby, having accepted and received Papa God’s gracious provision of a forever safe and secure eternity, ever have any reason to fear what the future may hold?

I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand. The Father and I are one.” (‭John‬ ‭10‬:‭28-30‬ NLT)

I, The LORD Jesus Christ, with great joy and delight, choose to grant to all those who hear my voice and follow after Me—life without end. A life, in which, there shall not ever be a reason for them to fear what the future may hold, for they shall forever be safe and secure, never ceasing to exist. There isn’t any power in heaven or on earth, that will ever be able to steal or take them from Me, nor will there be anyone or anything that will have the capacity or power to abduct them from Papa God’s almighty grip, as it is He that has given them to Me. Know this, Papa God and I are One. (John 10:28-30 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Nope! For according to Papa God’s faithful promise, written down in His Holy Writ, there’s not anything or anyone that is powerful enough to wrest us away from the tightly held, firm grasp of Papa God’s forever safe and secure hands; in which, He is and forever shall be, in possession of our very lives, our eternal souls. So, for the believer, they are fully assured, by The LORD God Almighty Himself, that they are forever and ever, eternally safe and secure, within His all powerful and sure, loving grip. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/08- “Papa God’s Word, Cuts And Carves, Right To The Core, It Slices And Severs, ‘Tween Soul And Spirit, Exacting With Perfect Precision, His Engraved Personal Etching, Upon Our Hearts!” (Hebrews 4:12)

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.

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/08- “Papa God’s Word, Cuts And Carves, Right To The Core, It Slices And Severs, ‘Tween Soul And Spirit, Exacting With Perfect Precision, His Engraved Personal Etching, Upon Our Hearts!” (Hebrews 4:12)

Premise Question: How do we, as believers, keep our sword razor sharp on both edges of its blade, staying effective in using it both vertically and horizontally, as well as, inwardly and outwardly, and which shall always bring honor and glory to The LORD?

For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. (‭Hebrews‬ ‭4‬:‭12‬ NLT)

There is not a more potent, full of force and dynamic power, than Papa God’s efficacious living Word. There is no weapon on earth that is as sharp or its equal, as it incisively cuts and carves right to the core issues between our soul, with its emotions and human tendency to sin, and our spirit, which was created to worship, honor and commune with Papa God. His Word cuts deeply into our sinful nature, even separating out and revealing our most private and intimate thoughts, all of our imaginations, machinations are laid open and bare, for nothing can be hidden from Papa God, not even our personal proclivities, fascinations, cravings, infatuations, or longings; as He sees, knows and is fully aware of them all. (Hebrews 4:12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: There is but one way to keep The Sword of The LORD sharpened on both of its sides, in our lives, and that is, by loving Papa God, vertically and inwardly, within the within of our heart, mind, soul, body and with all of our strength, as well as, loving others, horizontally and outwardly, as much as we love ourselves, and with the same love that Papa God loves us with. So, love Papa God and your vertical/inward love shall always stay sharp and be accepted; love others and your horizontal/outward love shall always stay sharp and will be completely effective! Stay sharp, my fellow believers and dearly loved friends, by keeping both sides of your sword sharp, with The Stone the builders rejected, The Rock, The Word, Jesus Christ, The One True LORD and Savior of humankind! Blessings…
