SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/29- “Thankfulness Provides Strength And Stability In Our Faith!” (Colossians 2:7)

Premise Question: Why is it so vital and critically important, as well as being absolutely imperative, that we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, be deeply rooted and established in The Truth of The LORD?

“Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” (‭‭Colossians‬ ‭2:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Allow yourself to grow down deep and wide, being deeply entrenched, and firmly implanted in The LORD, producing a strong foundation, that will be able to support a solid structure that is fortified and stabilized, by your strong certitude and convictions, that you were taught and brought up in; even, your stalwart belief and faith in The Truth—our Blessed Hope, that causes you to always be abounding in great measure in superabundance, teeming and overflowing with gratitude and thanksgiving. (Colossians 2:7 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We must, each one, be willing to be buried in Him, (in order to become “B-I-G” in God, you must first be willing to be Buried-In-God—planted down deep in Him, like a seed that is planted in the ground and dies, but then germinates and is brought back to life to produce a harvest after its kind, so too, must we be willing to die to self, so that we can then produce a harvest after its kind—a righteous one) thoroughly and completely immersed, totally embedded in His presence, being literally surrounded and covered by His righteousness; while growing down and out, initially, in order to create a strong root system that will then give us a sure foundation, so that we can build a strong and stalwart life structure, that will have the ability, strength and capacity to withstand the various trials and storms of life, in order to enable us to mature, by growing up and then spreading out, with hearts filled with gratitude and thanksgiving, so that we can then flourish, having an efficacious and powerfully reaching impact, not only upon our own lives, but the many lives of others living in this world, as well.

All of this will have the glorious effect of producing within us and others, a great and bountiful, successful harvest of righteousness; wherever we go, wherever we are and with whomever we have the wonderful and blessed opportunity to love, bless, help and serve.

Remember though, in order for any of us to grow, flourish and then produce a successful and righteous harvest with our lives, in this life, we must first, for there is no other way, be willing to be planted, buried deep (die) in the ground of The LORD; growing down deep and spreading out wide, so that a sure and strong, solid foundation is put in place, in our lives, that will and can support and sustain an appropriate and divinely designed and ordered structure of The LORD, in our lives, that will surely grow up, flourish, spread out wide and remain, thereby, blessing not only our own lives, by producing a successful harvest of righteousness, which is pleasing to The LORD, but will also affect, in an efficacious, good, acceptable and most perfect way, the lives of many others, in this life. Grow down and out before ever attempting or expecting to grow up and out! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/14- “The Word Of The LORD Remains Forever!” (1 Peter 1:24-25)

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: 06/14- “The Word Of The LORD Remains Forever!” (1 Peter 1:24-25)

Premise Question: Because our existence living life here upon this earth, as humankind, can be characterized as being temporal, and in fact, is likened and compared to being a flower that’s growing in a field of grass, which grows up, blossoms and blooms, and then, eventually withers, fades away and ultimately dies; it should therefore, be incumbent upon each one of us, to become more keenly aware of what our own duration, longevity and mortality might be, and therefore, we must ask ourselves what kind of bloom and fragrance our flower is producing, how long will it last and what kind of residue is it leaving for others to see and smell, after we’re gone?

As the Scriptures say, “People are like grass; their beauty is like a flower in the field. The grass withers and the flower fades. But the word of the Lord remains forever.” And that word is the Good News that was preached to you. (‭1 Peter‬ ‭1‬:‭24-25‬ NLT)

For just as Papa God’s Holy Word perfectly describes it, all of a humankind’s existence can be likened to a flower growing in a field of grass; which has jointed stems, sheathing leaves and seed-like grains. In like manner, we humans have jointed limbs, sheathing skin and have the ability to reproduce, bearing offspring. Similarly, we, in all of our miraculous glory, our exquisite beauty and distinct honor, are like the grass and the flowers of the field, which break forth, grow up, then blossom and bloom, only to begin to lose their luster, as they begin to fade and ultimately die, shall also, as humans, begin to lose our youthful vigor, as we start to shrivel and fade, eventually decay, falling back into the earth, from wince we came. But, the infallible, immutable, all powerful Word of The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, shall never shrink, shrivel or fade, nor shall it ever depreciate, diminish or decay; for it shall forever remain, ever sustained, as the only truly ordained, reigning supreme, enduring authentic Word of The LORD! And this Word, which is The Good News Gospel of Jesus Christ, is the very same Word that has been, is being, and shall continue to be, what was shared with you, through the preaching and proclamation of said Word! (1Peter 1:24, 25 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Everything on this earth is temporal. Everything has a predetermined shelf-life, some things longer than others. But, the one constant, and thing that always remains, never changes and stays the same, is The Authentic Holy Word of The LORD! For The Word of The LORD shall never, in any wise, wither, diminish or fade away! For it shall always remain forever and ever—without end!

The Word of The LORD was given for the benefit of the whole of humankind, and is therefore, the Good News that all of humankind needs to see and hear, accept as truth and then receive and follow, living it out in their everyday lives, by growing and maturing, blossoming and blooming, in order to produce a beautiful fragrance that will draw others to The LORD, and then, leave a residue of legacy, a bowl of potpourri, for others to see and smell; to be encouraging and inspiring, so that others may then have the opportunity afforded them to personally experience.

No one can really know the longevity or duration of one’s life here on this earth. But, we can accept that we are mortals and therefore, should, with this in view, do all that we can, with the enabling of The LORD and the empowering of The Holy Spirit, to live a life that is pleasing to Papa God; one that produces a wonderful fragrance of worship that rises into the heavens and leaves a residue of a beautiful legacy for others to emulate and follow, while living here on this earth. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/22- “Tell The Whole Truth, Live The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth!” (Ephesians 4:25)

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: 05/22- “Tell The Whole Truth, Live The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth!” (Ephesians 4:25)

Premise Question: What are some of the very important reasons why we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, must not only tell the whole truth to each other, but also live the whole truth and nothing but the truth, before each other and the world?

So stop telling lies. Let us tell our neighbors the truth, for we are all parts of the same body. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭4‬:‭25‬ NLT)

Therefore, as a result and consequence of you becoming a new person, each individual, that means every one of you, who, as a member of The Company of The Redeemed, are imperatively obliged and bound, by a necessary requirement, to remove and cast off all lies, fabrications, making false statements, inventive stories, any canard or untruth. For now, as a member of The Company of The Redeemed, you are to only utter words that will articulate the truth, communicating in a loving and truthful manner, with your dearly loved and highly regarded close fellow family members and neighbors, only the truth. For we are all parts of the same body, as individuals and unique members, of the one true family of Papa God—The Company of The Redeemed of The LORD. (Ephesians 4:25 PDCP)

Bottom Line: First and foremost, accepting, knowing and living the truth is the only thing that will set us and others free to live in the truth!

And, there’s not a remote possibility to even begin to fulfill Papa God’s divine purpose and will for our lives, nor will it ever be close to being worthy of the high calling that’s been placed upon our lives, by Papa God Himself, if we wont stop telling lies and continually refuse to not only tell the whole truth, but live the whole truth, as well.

In living the whole truth, we’ve been called to be humble, gentle, kind, patient and to always make allowances for the faults of others, while making every effort to keep the peace.

When we are speaking and living the truth, we should not ever sugar coat, minimize, coverup, or in some way alter or change the truth, in order to make it more palatable to those it’s being shared with. But, it must, as in, always an absolute must, be spoken, conveyed, lived and shown with Papa God’s love.

So, let us all allow the Holy Spirit to renew our thoughts and attitudes, by putting off our old nature and putting on true righteousness and holiness—His nature, which is our new nature.

Stop trying to manage the old nature, by dressing it up and putting on airs, while pretending to have a new nature, when in actuality, it’s living a lie. Don’t live a lie, while trying to portray the truth, for this will lead others astray.

But, be transformed and renewed by the truth, and then, live free in the whole truth. Always choose to be a purveyor of truth and nothing else but the truth, with the enabling power of Papa God. 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- 05/14- “Papa God Has No Peers!” (2 Samuel 7:22)

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: 05/14- “Papa God Has No Peers!”
(2 Samuel 7:22)

Premise Question: What insight, instruction and understanding, can we gain and take away from this magnificent statement of truth, that was spoken by King David, in a time of thoughtful, thankful praise and prayer, which he offered up to The Sovereign Most High, Papa God?

“How great you are, O Sovereign LORD! There is no one like you. We have never even heard of another God like you! (‭2 Samuel‬ ‭7‬:‭22‬ NLT)

How magnificently great and awesome You are, with all power and authority, The Utmost Excellent Supreme Ruler, The Almighty God and Sovereign LORD, who is exalted preeminently above all others! Nothing and no one is worthy of comparison, for You are most distinguished! You have no peers! You alone are Papa God, The Most High! The record is clear, everything that’s been told about You and that we continue to see and experience personally, verifies the Truth of who You are! (2 Samuel 7:22 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The insight that we gain is: Papa God hasn’t any peers that can be compared to Him, because there is no other God like Him; none that preceded or predated Him, nor none that has, does, or will ever supersede Him, for they have never existed, do not exist, nor will they ever exist!
(2 Samuel 7:22)

The wonderful life giving instruction that we can learn and should faithfully follow and devote ourselves to is: Papa God is to be worshipped, honored, obeyed and praised above all others and all else; for He should take the preeminent place in our hearts and lives, and our life house should be built upon Him and Him alone, The Solid Rock! (1 Chronicles 16:29, Luke 6:48)

The place of understanding that we come into is: He is the sure, Solid Rock, foundation and that whatever He says and declares shall come to pass and be completely fulfilled! (2 Samuel 22:31-32, Isaiah 55:11)

Finally, we all should accept, as truth, this powerful statement made in First Chronicles: “Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O LORD, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things.” (‭1 Chronicles‬ ‭29‬:‭11‬ NLT)

Why? Because, Papa God has no peers! 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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/28/15- “Only The Word Of The LORD Is Faithful, Right And Forever Rings True! (Psalms 33:3-5)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/28/15- ” Only The Word Of The LORD Is Faithful, Right And Forever Rings True!” (Psalms 33:3-5)

Premise Question: How significantly important is it for Papa God’s children, each and every member of The Company of The Redeemed, to deliberately, with diligence and a determined dogged devotion, abandon themselves completely to Him, by giving Him all honor, glory, praise and worship that’s due His Name; as well as, accepting and fully trusting His Word, as being the only faithful and true, right and exact, Word of The LORD?

“Sing a new song of praise to him; play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy. For the word of the LORD holds true, and we can trust everything he does. He loves whatever is just and good; the unfailing love of the LORD fills the earth.” (‭Psalms‬ ‭33:3-5‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Allow for a new song to form upon your lips and come out of your mouth, one that flows from the innermost part of your heart. Sing it out, with complete abandonment, to The LORD. Increase and develop, through knowledge and with deliberate practice, your aptitude for playing instruments skillfully and with great excellence. Shout joyous praise to Him, with loud, boisterous and exuberant exultations; lifting your voice to Him and giving Him all that’s within you, holding nothing back in reserve. For there is only One Word that is genuine, authentic and exact, faithful and true, and that shall last forever; it is The Word of The LORD; trustworthy, always reliable, ever dependable, as He, Papa God, is faithful, and consistently constant, to keep all of His promises in everything that He ever says and does. The LORD is greatly pleased when His people live righteously, sharing His goodness and acting justly before all of humankind, according to His principles and precepts in His Holy Scriptures. The whole earth is filled to its utmost capacity with His inexhaustible, profoundly tender and compassionate, unfailing and deeply affectionate, love. (Psalm 33:3-5 PDCP)

Bottom Line: There is nothing more significant or important, than for each and every individual child of Papa God, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, to completely abandon themselves to Him in worship, praise and service! When we choose to honor The LORD, first and foremost, by placing Him above and putting Him before all others and everything else in life, our lives will become enriched, strengthened, renewed and refreshed, as He will faithfully order each and every day of our lives; putting us at peace, filling us with His joy, through the power and presence of His Holy Spirit in our personal individual lives, by leading, guiding, providing, sustaining and comforting us, no matter what we may encounter or have to go through in this life. Remember and be greatly encouraged this day, by the absolute truth that’s clearly delineated and shown in Papa God’s Holy Scriptures: His Word is faithful and always rings true and exact! His Word always proves true and has the ring of truth, as it always holds true, fully supported by His resounding character and truth of His Everlasting Word! We, therefore, can always count on Him and His ever reliable promises and His unfailing love to do all that He says it will do and be; for His enduring love, goodness, gracious favor, mercy and justice is pouring down from His heavenly abode, into and upon all of His children, filling and covering the whole earth! Blessings…
