SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/08- “He Came, He Did What He Came For And Is Coming Again!” (Hebrews 9:28)

Premise Question: Is there an alternative way or path to escape death and eternal damnation and thereby, receive eternal life and salvation, other than the one and only way provided and through the one and only Name offered to Papa God’s very own and unique creation—humankind?

“so also Christ was offered once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him.” (‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭9:28‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

So Jesus Christ, the Anointed and Appointed One, by and with the seal of approval of The Sovereign Almighty Father God, was offered up only one time, once, for all of humankind, as the perfect atoning sacrifice, on a cruel cross, so that, Papa God’s divine purpose and grand design of removing and erasing entirely, the stain and curse of sin and death, from humankind, would be fully satisfied; thereby, affording many to avoid the wrath and righteous judgment of a Holy Papa God. Jesus Christ, The LORD, will appear, yet again, for a second time, but this time it will not be as a sacrificial lamb, come to carry the heavy burden of sin or even to deal with sin, for He has already done that and will not ever be subjected to having to do it again. But, He will come, as the victorious conquering King of kings, bringing with Him the final culmination and complete fulfillment of our Eternal Salvation; giving it to all the members of The Company of The Redeemed, who, with great patience and endurance and hopeful expectations, are eagerly waiting on Him to come again, just like He promised. (Hebrews 9:28 PDCP)

Bottom Line: No, there is not any other way or alternative path! For the sacrificial offering, upon the cross, of The Perfect Lamb of Papa God, His Only Begotten Son, is the only sacrifice that will ever be made, on behalf of humankind, as it has already accomplished, and will yet fulfill, all that it was intended to do, which is, being the provision of the only way of ESCAPE (Eternal Salvation Came At Perfection’s Expense) from darkness, death and eternal damnation, in that, each one who chooses to confess and believe in The Name of The LORD shall be delivered into The Everlasting Light and Life of His Eternal Presence, thereby, receiving His provision of eternal salvation and redemption; which is offered to all of those who’ve been created by Him, for Him and in His image, through The One Name, that is above every other name known and unknown, Jesus Christ—The LORD and Savior of humankind! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/10- “Papa God Is Ever Faithful And True!” (1 John 1:9)

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: 07/10- “Papa God Is Ever Faithful And True!”
(1 John 1:9)

Premise Question: What is the one condition that we, as an individual of humankind, must fulfill in order to receive a complete clean bill of spiritual health and remission for all of our sins?

But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. (‭1 John‬ ‭1‬:‭9‬ NLT)

On the condition that we are willing to address truthfully, by admitting fully, the failings, falterings, and fallaciousness in our lives, then Papa God, who is Holy, full of righteousness and justice, will be true to Himself and every promise in His word, by completely releasing us from the severe penalty of our transgressing failings, falterings and fallaciousness, purging any and all effects of our misdeeds, wrong behaviors and evil practices from our lives, making us pure and righteous to stand before Him. (1 John 1:9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The one condition that everyone, as an individual of humankind, must meet, in order to be set free from their sin and its righteous requirements, which by themselves and on their own, could not ever be satisfied or fulfilled, is to become transparent, by coming clean; holding nor hiding anything in secrecy, unconfessed, but with an openness, to freely confess all of their sin to Papa God, repenting and turning away from any evil conduct or practices and then trusting and relying on His great faithfulness and His pure and just righteousness to wipe the slate completely clean, by entirely removing every bit of wickedness and also granting a pardon and release from the required penalty for our sin, canceling our indebtedness, being fully exonerated, purified, restored and renewed back to Papa God in right relationship.

But IF—which is a BIG IF! But when we satisfy the required condition to our cleansing and restoration; then, Papa God who is always faithful and true to His Word, (for He is the Just, Holy and Righteous One) will fulfill every promise He has made, and therefore, shall give us, those who’ve confessed their sin to Him, a clean bill of spiritual health and a full remission for all of our sins!

Remember, confession is always good for the soul. Hallelujah and Amen! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/08- “Authentic Love—Put On Display!” (1 John 4:10)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/08- “Authentic Love—Put On Display!”
(1 John 4:10)

Premise Question: For all those who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, and who want to remain as members in good standing, what certainly ought to be our most authentic and highly appropriate response to Papa God’s display of authentic real love put on display, for all to see, for us and the rest of humankind?

This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. (‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭10‬ NLT)

Herein lies the truest example of the ultimate expression of what real authentic love is and looks like—not what our love for Papa God is or looks like, but what The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty’s love is and looks like for us, His beloved children. This authentic love was put on full display for us, The Company of The Redeemed, for all to see, when He dispatched His One and only Son, Jesus Christ, to earth, to appease, by making full amends and satisfying completely all of the righteous requirements of Papa God’s Holy and Divine Law, for our sin. He, Jesus, accomplished this, when He willingly laid down His life, as an offering, upon the cross, taking our place, as our substitute, in order to remove and take away the penalty of sin—our death sentence, by making us clean and pure, from all of our sinful transgressions, practices and behaviors. (1 John 4:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, should be absolutely aware, being fully cognizant, of what real authentic love is, because of what Papa God did for of all of us, by sending His One and only Son, Jesus Christ, as the perfect remedy and sacrifice, to be offered upon the cross, in our stead, taking our place, in order to completely remove, making us clean and pure, by taking away all of our iniquity and sinful transgressions and also nullifying the penalty of sin, but not only ours, The Redeemed, but all of humankind’s.

It is therefore, because of what The LORD has done and put on display for all to see, that we all should respond, holding nothing back, with heartfelt praise, worship, adoration and rejoicing, along with great honor, thanksgiving and gratitude, for all that He has accomplished for each and everyone of us, as well as, all of humankind.

Furthermore, our response should include one that clearly resembles and mirrors what The LORD has done for us, in that, as He willingly laid His life down for us, we also ought to love each other and should be willing to lay our lives down for each other, with that same love, being put on display, for all to see, showing everyone that our love and commitment to each other and those that are still in the world, truly emulates Papa God’s love and commitment for the world and each one of us, who are already members of The Company of The Redeemed! 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- 05/17- “A Verifiable Statement Of Truth!” (1 Timothy 1:15)

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: 05/17- “A Verifiable Statement Of Truth!”
(1 Timothy 1:15)

Premise Question: What is a trustworthy statement and why is this particular one so very important for everyone, all of humankind, to personally receive and accept, as The Truth?

This is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”—and I am the worst of them all.
(‭1 Timothy‬ ‭1‬:‭15‬ NLT)

Right here and now, in this very place and at this very moment, it is an absolute imperative, that everyone hear and accept this verifiable statement of truth, which is completely dependable, being the most reliable, and which merits everyone’s utmost attention and full consideration, as well as, their highest favorable reception: Jesus Christ entered into this realm, sent by His Father, Papa God, from Heaven, to rescue and redeem all of humankind, everyone a transgressor, who is desperately lost and without any hope or prospect of ever being saved—of which, I am the most egregiously wicked one of all! (1 Timothy 1:15 PDCP)

Bottom Line: A trustworthy statement is one that is accurate and without dispute, worthy of full credibility, deserving of complete trust, as it is absolutely verifiable, reliable, steadfast and secure, and can confidently be counted on as always being faithful and true, no matter what may come.

This particular trustworthy statement of truth, found here in scripture, is critically vital and extremely important to everyone who is a member of humankind, because, of the fact of the matter, that it pertains to eternal life and death, and that it has been personally delivered to all of humankind, by The Holy Spirit, coming from Papa God and through the Apostle Paul, describing just exactly what Jesus Christ did, on behalf of Papa God, by telling everyone the specific and divine purpose for the redemption and salvation of all of humankind.

It is of the greatest import, that each individual of humankind choose to receive and accept this trustworthy statement of truth, because it is the only truth that can give and bring hope to each and every individual of humankind, by setting them free with The Truth, filling their hearts with love and creating within them a pure heart and clean conscience; that becomes an authentically righteous and genuine faith, full of hope and joy that will never disappoint.

We now, The Company of The Redeemed, should be making this pointed trustworthy statement of truth, with clarity and conviction, using all avenues, ways, means and methods that are available and possible, to reach out to all of humankind, those that are lost and in darkness, without help or hope, with this statement of truth, the message of hope and new life, so they too, will then have the wonderful opportunity of responding to this magnanimous offer presented to them, in order to receive and accept The Truth, thus being set free by The Truth, and thereby, not missing out on everlasting eternal life, which then, subsequently, allows them to absolutely avoid eternal death, hell, the grave and everlasting damnation. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/15- “Papa God’s Great Love For His Most Beloved Creation, Humankind!” (John 3:16)

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: 05/15- “Papa God’s Great Love For His Most Beloved Creation, Humankind!” (John 3:16)

Premise Question: What should our immediate response be to Papa God’s great overture of love towards us, what actions should follow our response and how should we then comport our daily lives?

“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. (‭John‬ ‭3‬:‭16‬ NLT)

For Papa God, the Supreme Ruler—The Creator of Heaven and Earth and everything else created therein, had, and still does have, a profound and great propitious love, a benevolent affection, for all of humankind, His most beloved creation. He voluntarily provided, by furnishing the perfect, efficacious sacrifice, His exclusive, one of a kind Son, who was and is and is to come; who being The Living Word, from before the beginning, became flesh, in order to dwell among us, so that, whoever places their complete faith and trust, their full confidence, in Papa God’s Son, Jesus Christ, who is The Savior/Messiah of the world, shall not ever be destroyed, as they shall never cease to exist or die a spiritual death, but will experience an everlasting, perpetual, ceaseless, without end, eternal life of everlasting joy and tranquil peace! (John 3:16 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Our response to Papa God’s great overture of love towards us should be to immediately believe in and accept His gracious and most merciful provision of an absolutely necessary Redeemer, His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ, as our personal LORD and Savior.

And then, we should, with a heart full of thanksgiving, appreciation and gratitude for His love, mercy and gracious favor and for all that He’s done for us, and will yet do for us, in providing us a new life of eternal joy and peace, along with a sure escape from certain eternal death, punishment and eternal separation from the mighty and magnificently glorious presence of The LORD.

Furthermore, our quick and deliberate actions should be to prepare ourselves and others adequately, in order to send them and to go ourselves, armed with the ability to share, Papa God’s clear and concise message of great joy and good news, with everyone everywhere.

Finally, the daily comportment of our lives should be lived in such a way, that it will bring glory and honor to our LORD, by obeying His Word, desiring and then doing His will, and then living our lives as an offering of spiritual worship and praise unto The King Eternal, The Most High, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty—Jesus Christ The LORD! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/01- “He, Came To Serve—We Are Called To Serve!” (Matthew 20:28)

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: 04/01- “He, Came To Serve—We Are Called To Serve!” (Matthew 20:28)

Premise Question: As a member in good standing, of The Company of The Redeemed, are you following the example of Christ, by making yourself available to Him, in order to serve others, and then, are you actively looking for opportunities to do so; or are you, in fact, just sitting back, waiting and looking, with the expectation of an entitlement attitude, of wanting and expecting to be served by others?

For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (‭Matthew‬ ‭20‬:‭28‬ NLT)

So, it was Papa God’s only Son, Jesus Christ, who came to earth, as a humble and obedient servant, not to be served, by all of humanity, but to serve all of humankind, by meeting their greatest need, of faithfully serving in the role of an absolutely necessary Redeemer; thereby, volunteering to lay down His life, in order to purchase their lives. (Matthew 20:28 PDCP)

Bottom Line: It has been said, that there are primarily two different kinds of people in the world, (church) those who are looking to serve and those who are looking to be served! That actually works out well, as the one who wants to serve will always have plenty of opportunities to serve those who are looking to be served. This, ironically and beneficially, works both ways!

A wonderful example of this scenario took place on a weekly basis, in a community of believers that I was greatly honored and privileged to personally minister with, while seeing this incredible dynamic in action, of serving and being served, carried out, with diligence, in a remarkable and incredibly beautiful way.

The ministry was called LAF, (Loaves and Fishes) which served a weekly hot meal, that coincided with an encouraging word and service, personal ministry, follow up, referrals and also sent home, with each of them who came out for the meal and ministry time, about 40 to 60 lbs of groceries and personal necessities.

The entire ministry was staffed and facilitated with volunteers from the community of believers. Those who served those who were in need of being served, ended up receiving the greater blessing, for it truly is more blessed to serve than to be served!

Another ongoing result of the ministry, was that, many of those who came for the ministry and were being served, eventually, became joyful volunteer servers, in the LAF ministry, and then, they too, received the greater blessing, of serving, rather than being served.

Before Christ, we were in great need of being served by Christ, but now that we’ve been served by Him, we should now become His faithful servants, by serving others.

So, as Jesus came to serve, rather than to be served, we too, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, should have this same attitude and mind, the mind of Christ! We are to follow the example of Christ, by being what Christ-like means: An authentic Christian!

I leave you with two very poignant scriptures: #1. For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.” (‭Luke‬ ‭19‬:‭10‬ NLT) #2. Again he said, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.” (‭John‬ ‭20‬:‭21‬ NLT) He came to serve, seek and save the lost, and now, He is sending us to do the same…Blessings…
