SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/16- “A Faith That Pleases Papa God!” (Hebrews 11:6)

Premise Question: Is your faith pleasing and award worthy to Papa God?

“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” (‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

And if it be your great aim and desire, in your life, to please Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, with your life, then, when you humbly, but with boldness, approach His Splendid Magnificence, you must first exhibit an authentic strong belief and certitude in the reality of His existence; for without an authentic faith, it’s quite absurd, as well as a complete exercise in futility, to ever think you’ll have any success in pleasing Him! And, futhermore, there is one other premise to fully understand and accept, for it is a promise that He, Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Himself, shall fulfill, that is: He will always give a just recompense award, to all those who intentionally make it their purpose and life’s quest, to diligently pursue Him and to do His will. (Hebrews 11:6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Our greatest quest, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, (being our most sincere desire and aim in life) should always be, to please Papa God—The LORD GOD Almighty, by exhibiting a faith that not only believes He exists, but is also diligently devoted to willingly do His bidding, in order to fulfill and accomplish completely, His divine purpose and will for our lives. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/15- “The Paradox Of Our Tongues!” (James 3:9-10)

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: 12/15- “The Paradox Of Our Tongues!” (James 3:9-10)

Premise Question: What is the determining factor and condition, as it relates to whether or not it’s cursing or blessing that comes out of our mouths, being uttered by our very own tongues?

“Sometimes it praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it curses those who have been made in the image of God. And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth. Surely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right!” ‭‭(James‬ ‭3:9-10‬ ‭NLT‬)

My dearly and most beloved family of The Most High, we have an all too common practice, that is paradoxical in nature, of expressing, by uttering praises and blessings, with acclamation, exaltation, admiration, laudation and commendation, unto our LORD and Savior and Papa God, while at the same time, coming out of the same mouth and with the same tongue, we utter profanity, filled with condemnation, denunciation, abomination, damnation and a commination of curses, directed towards our fellow humankind; which, by the way, were also formed, shaped and modeled, by The LORD GOD Almighty Himself, to be a representation of His Own Likeness. What is this then, that I’m hearing coming from your mouths; both, expressions of appreciation, grateful homage, with high acclaim and devotion, as well as, expressions of profane obscenities that are blasphemous, filled with obloquious hurtful abusive language? My most beloved and cherished fellow family members of The Company of The Redeemed, this should not be occurring, as it is completely unacceptable and incongruent behavior that should absolutely never be a part of our common practice, as believers. (James 3:9-10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: What ends up coming out of our mouths, which is uttered by our tongues, is more often times than naught, determined by the content of our hearts. One more salient point to consider: When we curse others, who have been created in Papa God’s likeness, we, in essence, are essentially cursing The Creator of humankind.

Remember, it is always out of the abundance of what is in our hearts, that determines the expressions and how the mouth ends up speaking; whether it be blessing or cursing! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/14- “We Get What We Ask For And What’s Best For Us, When It’s What He Wants For Us!” (1 John 5:14-15)

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: 12/14- “We Get What We Ask For And What’s Best For Us, When It’s What He Wants For Us!” (1 John 5:14-15)

Premise Question: Do we, can we, as children of The Most High—The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, get and have what we ask of Him?

“And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for.” ‭‭(1 John‬ ‭5:14-15‬ ‭NLT‬)

This is the certain certitude, that we confidently possess, being fully assured, with extraordinary courage, as we draw near, even extremely close, to the very manifest presence, of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty: it’s knowing that if we make a request, that is entirely congruent with His divine design, perfect purpose and wonderful plan for our lives, which pleases Him, then, He is pre-disposed to incline His ear and heart towards us and listens with rapt attention. And, because we are not in the dark, or unaware of the fact that He listens to us, when we offer up our petitions, requests and entreaties, that are pleasing to Him, then, no matter what we request, we are already fully assured of having all that we have requested of Him!
(1 John 5:14-15 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Oh what a blessing it is for us and others, when our requests of The LORD are pleasing to Him, because they truly fulfill His divine purpose and wonderful plan for our lives and the lives of others.

It’s also wonderful knowing, that when we ask anything, according to His will, we have it, for it is already a work in progress and is part of the necessary and perfect process. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/13- “He, The LORD, Will Make You Strong!” (2 Corinthians 12:9)

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.

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/13- “He, The LORD, Will Make You Strong!”
(2 Corinthians 12:9)

Premise Question: How often and when does The LORD GOD Almighty make us, His precious and beloved children, strong?

“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” (2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:9‬ ‭NLT‬)

But the magnificent and most merciful LORD GOD Almighty set me straight, with this greatly encouraging admonition: “My ever faithful, loving kindness is all that you will ever need, it will always suffice, for My efficacious ability to accomplish and fulfill My divine design, will and purpose for your life, becomes ideal and absolutely impeccable, when in your frailty, inadequacies, infirmities and afflictions, you choose to completely rely upon Me!” Now that, is the reason why I’m more than happy and joyful to speak, with excessive pride, in an exaggerated manner and grandiose fashion, about my inglorious inadequacies, frail infirmities and noisome afflictions; knowing full well that The LORD GOD Almighty Himself is empowering me to do all that He desires, fulfilling and accomplishing in me and through me, His divine design, purpose and will for my life and ultimately, all for His Glory. (2 Corinthians 12:9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: He does it always through His sufficient grace and by His power. For He, The LORD GOD Almighty, will always make us strong, in our weaknesses, as we choose to rely upon His strength and not our own.

Sometimes though, our own strengths can become our weaknesses, when we choose to rely on them, rather than relying upon The LORD’s strength and His all sufficient grace. But, even still, in our own strength/weaknesses, when yielded to Him, He will make us strong! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/12- “Finish Strong—Complete Your Divine Assignment!” (Acts 20:24)

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.

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/12- “Finish Strong—Complete Your Divine Assignment!” (Acts 20:24)

Premise Question: What should be the most important aspect and factor of completing the divine assignment given to us, by The LORD Himself?

“But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.”‭‭ (Acts ‭20:24‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Notwithstanding, it matters very little to me, with regard to what may or may not happen to me personally, for I deem and recognize that my existence has very little value or usefulness, except, for only one reason and divine purpose, that of being entirely spent on what is most important to me, being my greatest aspiration; which is, to wrap-up and complete with a flourish, my life’s only ambition, the great undertaking, that The LORD Jesus Christ personally charged and assigned me with, entrusting to me the divine assignment of His divine purpose of announcing, with huge fanfare, a declaration of the “best and greatest news” humankind has ever or would ever receive, telling everyone that I have the honored privilege of coming in contact or have opportunity to interact with, have influence on, or in some way, might impact, of the incomparable and wonderful Good News of Papa God’s unfailing, extravagantly gracious, loving kindness. ( Acts 20:24 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, should make it our ultimate goal and aim in life to finish strong, by completing the divinely assigned task of the “Great Commission,” that has been entrusted to each one of us, by The LORD Jesus Christ Himself; which of course is, telling everyone, everywhere, as we have opportunity, of Papa God’s great love, magnificent mercy and His wonderful saving grace.

The Apostle Paul tells us that he gave his all, spent his all and became all he ever needed to become, in order to have the best and blest opportunity of reaching out to everyone, everywhere, no matter who they were or from whence they came, so that, perhaps, they might respond to the Good News and be eternally saved!

The famous 19th century evangelist and teacher, D. L. Moody, had his own unique experience of not giving an opportunity to those who had attended his meeting one night, to respond to the message of the Good News and it was later that night, that the conflagration that is known as the Chicago Fire, broke out, with many perishing that night in the fire. It has been purported that of those that died in the fire that frightful night, many had been in D. L. Moody’s meeting earlier that night. It had such an impact upon the evangelist that he vowed to not ever close another meeting without giving a clear and strong presentation of the Good News to those in attendance, by granting them an opportunity to be forever changed now and for eternity by the power and presence of a loving, most merciful and gracious Papa God, through His Son, The LORD and Savior of humankind—Jesus Christ.

One of my favorite quotes, attributed to D. L. Moody is: “No man (one) ever sent by God is a failure!” The message that I’ve always taken from this quote is, no matter the outcome or results of whatever we do or wherever we may go, the most important aspect and what factors most, is that we have answered and been obedient to the call to go and faithfully finish strong, by completing the task and divine assignment given to us; therefore, we should and most necessarily leave the outcome and results to The LORD!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/11- “Believing Is Truly Seeing!” (Hebrews 11:1)

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: 12/11- “Believing Is Truly Seeing!” (Hebrews 11:1)

Premise Question: Seeing is believing, or, believing is truly seeing; which thought and statement is most authentically appropriate for those of us who are believing members of The Company of The Redeemed?

“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” (Hebrews‬ ‭11:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Now concerning our Rock Solid unshakable faith, which is the sure foundation upon which everything in our existence is built on, for faith is what gives us the supreme confidence, being fully convinced, that what we hope for, in this life and beyond, even though we can not actually see it, with our physical eyes, we still have the absolute assurance of our strong convictions; therefore, our faith is all the evidence that we need, in order to believe in what we can not see with our physical eyes. (Hebrews 11:1 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Near the end of The Gospel according to The Apostle John, Jesus had an encounter with The Apostle, known as “The Twin,” and who has since been referred to as “Doubting Thomas” and who, on a personal level, had some serious doubts about whether or not Jesus had actually, in fact, really risen from the grave. He even struggled with the personal eye witness accounts and reports of his closest friends and associates; boldly and definitively declaring that he was not going to believe their reports unless he was personally able to see with his own eyes, and then, place his own fingers in the actual holes of The LORD’s hands and feet, thus the thought and statement, “seeing is believing” rather than the thought and statement of faith of “believing is truly seeing!”

In this riveting and most unique encounter we don’t see The LORD rebuke Thomas for his doubts, but The LORD surely encourages Thomas to take a look, feel and then, see and believe that He is real and that He really has risen from the grave.

I personally don’t feel, nor do I think, The LORD is put off by our doubts, for it is us that are actually put off by our own doubts and unbelief.

So, just as Thomas was encouraged to see and believe, but was also encouraged to have a greater faith, which is to believe—being full of assurance and expectant hope, confidently seeing with the eye of faith—The LORD is now encouraging us to believe and truly see!

We should therefore, take a firm grip upon our faith, but even more important, is allowing our faith to take a strong hold upon us! For whether it’s in the past time, present time or some future time, the concept of “now” always applies and should therefore, be a continuum for all time, when we sincerely consider the matter of our faith!

So, when evaluating our own faith, “seeing is not believing,” but, “believing is truly seeing” confidently, with the eyes of faith, while being fully assured, with a heart full of joy-filled expectant hope! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/10- “Jesus Christ—The One True Light Of The World!” (John 1:8)

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: 12/10- “Jesus Christ—The One True Light Of The World!” (John 1:8)

Premise Question: What is the divine calling, that each member of The Company of The Redeemed has now received from Papa God, in regards to The Light of the world?

“John himself was not the light; he was simply a witness to tell about the light.” (‭‭John‬ ‭1:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

The one known as John The Baptizer, was not The Anointed One who would come into the world as The One True Light and giver of new life; for John’s specific and divine calling, from Papa God, was to simply announce the Good News, to the world, as the foremost herald and ambassador, the expert witness, of The One True Light of the world. (John 1:8 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, have now been given the same divine calling that was given to John The Baptizer, which also comes from Papa God and is, that we should all be heralds, ambassadors and expert witnesses, announcing and declaring to the whole world, vigorously and with a sense of great urgency, that Jesus Christ is The One True Light of the world; the giver of life and The Only Hope of all humankind. Blessings…
