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: 12/23- “It’s Registration Time—So Make Room In Your Heart!” (Luke 2:6-7)

Premise Question: How does one register, in order to then be counted in the census of The LORD GOD Almighty, and, have you personally registered yet?

“And while they were there, the time came for her baby to be born. She gave birth to her first child, a son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.”
(‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:6-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

On the night of Mary and Joseph’s arrival into Bethlehem, the City of David, for the specific purpose of registering for the census, they were unable to secure appropriate lodging, as there was not a room or quarters available anywhere in the city to be had. And so, because Mary was very close to the time of her delivery, they were compelled to take what was left; which was a small stall in a stable, but it would have to suffice, on this wondrous and most glorious night. Sometime during this night, Mary went into labor and thus, brought forth into the world her firstborn, a son. She then carefully wrapped him up, tight and secure, in strips of clothing and then gently and lovingly laid him in a animal feeding trough, just inside the stall. (Luke 2:6-7 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Registration is now open and upon us all! It’s time for each of us to make room in our hearts and lives for “The Bread of Life,” The Savior of humankind, to come and reside within the within of our innermost beings.

After all, the first place He was lain, immediately after His glorious and wondrous birth, was in a manger; which of course, is a common feeding trough.

Perhaps Papa God was sending a message to everyone everywhere, even then, there in the very beginning, that all should come and partake of “The Bread of Life,” who came to bring redemption, salvation and new life to all who will believe and receive, by simply calling upon The Name of The LORD—The Savior of humankind—Jesus Christ, The Messiah and King!

Something for each and everyone of us to sincerely consider during this busy season. It’s registration time, so let’s not miss out on this wonderful and most glorious opportunity to make room in our hearts for The King of kings—Jesus Christ, The Savior of humankind. Blessings…

INDENTURED AND WITH CRUSHING INDEBTEDNESS…Repost

Held captive, as an indentured bond slave,
without any capacity or ability to repay
the suffocating and cruel crushing indebtedness required of us to pay
for our liberty, so that, we may live our lives in freedom and peace;
He, The LORD, comes to our rescue and defense,
as our benefactor, our liberator and redeemer,
He sets us free from the indentureship of bondage,
completely and fully satisfying our overwhelming onerous indebtedness.
All thanks and praise to The One True God,

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/21- “A Word Of Comfort And Assurance Given To Joseph And All Of Humankind!” (Matthew 1:21)

Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/21- “A Word Of Comfort And Assurance Given To Joseph And All Of Humankind!” (Matthew 1:21)

Premise Question: What are we to do today with the message Papa God delivered to Joseph, concerning Papa God’s Only Begotten Son?

“And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”” ‭‭(Matthew‬ ‭1:21‬ ‭NLT‬)

The Angel Gabriel, in speaking to Joseph, on behalf of, as well as, being the mouthpiece of Papa God, tells him that Mary, his betrothed, will bring forth a child of The Most High; The Anointed One, a Son, and that he, Joseph, is to confer upon Him the name Jesus. This particular name carries, within its title, The Savior of humankind, for it is He, that will rescue humanity from the certain plight of their transgressions, which is, first and foremost, that of being eternally separated from the presence of Their Creator; thereby, causing them to miss out on Papa God’s mercy and His divine and most gracious, loving purpose for their lives. (Matthew 1:21 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Pause for a moment to ponder the incredible amount of confidence and trust that Papa God had in Mary and Joseph…Wow! It’s almost too difficult to grasp or fathom.

Now, take another pause and reality check, of the fact that Papa God, still today, is placing His complete confidence and full assurance in us; by entrusting each one of us to continue to share, with everyone everywhere, this great and marvelous message of Good News, assurance, truth and His great comfort, love, deliverance and life-giving freedom for all of humankind! Blessings…

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

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.

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- 10/20- “There Is No Other Name, Or Way, To Salvation And Everlasting Life!” (Acts 4:12)

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: 10/20- “There Is No Other Name, Or Way, To Salvation And Everlasting Life!” (Acts 4:12)

Premise Question: Is there really not another name or way that one can be saved and set free, with the ultimate result of experiencing everlasting life?

“There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.” (Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭4:12‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Deliverance from the heinous powerful influence and grip of sin, which, if not broken, results in eternal damnation, death and destruction, can only come by way of one person, who was sent by Papa God, from Heaven above, His Name is Jesus—The Christ! For there is not another name or person, that has been given, or ever will be given, for the vital divine purpose and mission, of the salvation of the whole of humankind!” (Acts 4:12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: There is only one way, one path! There is no other way or path, that is given or known to humankind, whereby, one can experience real deliverance from sin, salvation and ultimately, everlasting life!

Jesus Christ plainly said: “I Am The Way, The Truth and The Life! No one will be able to come to Papa God, and thereby, receive deliverance from sin and eternal redemption, except they come to Him through Me!”

There is only one name given, whereby one can be rescued from sin’s powerful grip and influence! For there is no other name that has ever been given to humankind, by The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty—The One and Only True God, who is The Creator and Maker of the heavens and the earth and all that is therein, that will ever produce life and provide complete and total deliverance, by setting humankind free!

Jesus is also The Light of the world, and without Him illuminating our eyes, heart and understanding, we would continue in the grip and throes of darkness and sin; unaware that we are even unaware of the darkness and sin within and all around us!

We therefore, ought to thank Papa God every day for the incredible and indescribable gift of His Son and the magnificent power and presence of His Holy Spirit in our lives! 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- 05/20- “It Was An Absolute Necessity—That He Had To Do It All—Just For Us!” (1 Peter 2:24)

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: 05/20- “It Was An Absolute Necessity—That He Had To Do It All—Just For Us!” (1 Peter 2:24)

Premise Question: Why was it an absolute necessity, that Jesus personally take upon Himself, by carrying in His physical body, all the sins of humankind?

He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed.
(‭1 Peter‬ ‭2‬:‭24‬ NLT)

He, The King of Kings and The LORD of Lords, The Creator of Heaven and earth, while hanging on the cruel cross, personally received and took upon Himself, in His body, all of humankind’s iniquities, transgressions and vile sins. This, so that we would no longer be subject to the power that sin has over us; thereby, enabling us to completely die to the depravity of our pernicious ways and evil desires, so that, we can begin to fully realize all that He’s done for us and then, live righteously for Him. The wounds and afflictions He received in His body, now produces and provides healing and release in ours. (1Peter 2:24 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Jesus Christ personally took upon Himself, by carrying in His physical body, upon the cruel cross, all of humankind’s transgressing sin. Furthermore, He willingly took upon Himself, as a direct result of sin, their deserved death sentences, by dying for them in their place.

This was all absolutely necessary, in order to fulfill and satisfy completely, the righteous requirements of Papa God’s Holy Law. For without the offering up of Papa God’s only Son, the perfect sacrifice, on behalf of humankind, no amount of sacrificial offerings, work or humankind effort, on our part, will ever suffice, procure or produce a righteous life of being absolutely set free to live life victoriously, and then, ultimately, life eternal—living in the glorious light and personal presence of The King of Kings and The LORD of Lords—to forever experience the fullness of His joy and perfect peace, without end.

Something to take note of is: Papa God’s provision of His gracious favor and His merciful redemption was made on behalf of all of humankind, each and every individual, even for those who choose to reject it, by not believing and receiving His only Son as the provision of payment for their sin and death sentence; for Jesus bore their sins, as well!

He lavishly poured out His great love upon all of humankind, but each individual must choose to believe and accept personally, Papa God’s love, grace and mercy offered through His Son, our Savior Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

Let each one of us, of humankind, believe and accept personally, Papa God’s most merciful and gracious provision. Then, let us choose to die daily to self and the sinful desires of the flesh, in order to live victorious and free.

And, finally, always be ever thankful for the wonderful provision of healing, made available to us, because of the afflictions and wounds Jesus endured and took upon Himself! Blessings…

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

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)

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: 05/15- “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!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/03- “Papa God’s Love, Put On Display, For All To See!” (Romans 5:8)

Posted on Updated on

04/03-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: 04/03- “Papa God’s Love, Put On Display, For All To See!” (Romans 5:8)

Premise Question: Why did Papa God put on such a remarkable, spectacular exhibition and display, of His magnanimity, His incomparable gracious favor and His marvelous love, for all to clearly see?

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (‭Romans‬ ‭5‬:‭8‬ NLT)

Even so, Papa God clearly proved and made it known to everyone everywhere, with a spectacularly huge in magnitude, being utterly incomparable, display of His extravagantly magnanimous perfect love for all of humankind, by dispatching from Heaven, His One and only Son, The Agent of righteous redemption, The Anointed One, to hang upon a cruel cross for each and everyone of our sinful transgressions. And, that’s not all, for incredible as it may seem, He actually did this, amazingly enough, even while we were at our very worst and still His enemies; being in a helpless, hapless, hopeless and completely unrepentant and unredeemed deathlike state. (Romans 5:8 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Why? Because of this one great preeminent desire and divine purpose: The salvation and complete redemption of all of humankind; restoring, renewing and healing the breach, spanning the chasm, reconciling and bringing back to life, into a right and loving relationship with Papa God, in order to fully experience satisfying sweet fellowship, with His greatly cherished, being most precious and dearly loved, made in His own image, creation, His heart’s desire, humankind! (John 3:16) Blessings…
