SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/12/15- “Sin Has Lost Its Venomous Stinger!”
(1 Corinthians 15:56-57)
Premise Question: Why was sin given such power, for what purpose was sin given such authority and how does sin wield its power over humanity?
For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:56-57 NLT)
Sin acts as a stinger, injecting a venom into each one us, that is extremely painful, absolutely lethal, being quite deadly. It has the full weight, authority and power, of Papa God’s righteous law behind it. But, all thanks and praise goes to Papa God, for providing the anti-venom, through the shed blood of His Son, our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ! For He and He alone, is the only truly efficacious antidote, graciously made available to us, that completely counter-acts the power of the law of sin and death, and in so doing, gives us all, every member of The Company of The Redeemed, a most excellent and gloriously triumphant victory and huge success over our sin and death. (1 Corinthians 15:56-57 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Papa God established and gave His Holy Law, in order to judge sin in humankind. Sin was given the full backing and support of Papa Gods Holy Law, in order to carry out the just recompense, upon all of humankind, by paying just wages to each one, according to their own sinful practices and transgressions of His Holy Law. Sin was given great authority, for the express purpose of clearly pointing out the sheer futility and inadequacy of humankind ever being able to even begin to attempt to try and satisfy the righteous requirements of Papa Gods Holy Law; for it is an absolute impossibility to do so! But, with Papa God, all things are possible, especially to those who will place their complete faith and trust in Him! Finally, sin wields its lethal, legal power and authority over all of humankind, with dire consequences and curses, punishing and torturing, the sinner, which ultimately ends in eternal separation from Papa God’s presence, in eternal punishment and death. All thanks and praise to You, Papa God and Your Righteous Servant, who came and fulfilled every righteous requirement of Your Holy Law; thereby, providing complete victory over sin, death, hell and the grave, giving all who believe and receive Your Son, as their personal LORD and Savior, eternal salvation and an ESCAPE from eternal death!
E-S-C-A-P-E…Eternal Salvation Came At Perfection’s Expense! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/08/15- “Accusation, Condemnation, Reproach, Now There Is None!” (Romans 8:12)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/08/15- “Accusation, Condemnation, Reproach, Now There Is None!” (Romans 8:1-2)
Premise Question: What does it truly mean, for every member of The Company of The Redeemed, to now, no longer be subject to being severely punished and rightly judged for their own transgressing of the righteous requirements of Papa God’s Holy, being perfectly just, righteous law?
So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. (Romans 8:1-2 NLT)
Consequently, as a result of what Papa God accomplished through the sacrificial offering of His Only Son, Jesus Christ, hanging and dying upon a cruel cross; we, who believe, are now put in good standing with Papa God and His Son, The LORD Jesus Christ. For we are now recognized, as full fledged members of The Company of The Redeemed and thereby, have now, been set free from the powerful bands of wickedness of the law of sin, which ultimately leads to eternal death, by Papa God’s all powerful, life-giving Holy Spirit. And, furthermore, are now thus, no longer subject to being condemned, for our own transgressing of Papa God’s righteous law, but can now, live free, by the potent efficacy of the life-giving Holy Spirit, which fills us with the strength and ability to live a new life, by setting aside the righteous judgement, upon our lives, of a rightly deserved death sentence. (Rom. 8:1-2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: What it truly means, for those of us who believe, is: Jesus took our place, by taking and receiving upon Himself, our own death sentence, so that, we could then experience the ultimate immunity and pardon, of being set completely free; thereby, avoiding a just and right sentence of eternal punishment and ultimate death. He took the blame and disapproval of Papa God, so that, we could be held blameless and approved by Papa God, as being declared justifiably righteous in His sight, by having The Great Seal of Approval of The Holy Spirit put upon and inside us, within the within, of our innermost being. This is why we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, can instantly enjoy, all of the benefits and blessings, to the fullest extent, of our new found freedom and new life in Christ! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 03/30/15- “Retirement Plan? Pick One!” (Romans 6:23)
Premise Question: What are the stark contrasts and differences, when compared side by side, between the two eternal retirement, (benefits/plans) packages being offered, by Papa God through His Son Jesus Christ, to all of humankind?
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23 NLT)
The renumeration and recompense you’ll forever be paid, because of your sin, is eternal separation from Papa God’s presence, utter destruction and spiritual death, but the undeserved serendipitous and really generous gift, that Papa God has made available to you and which is absolutely free, without any cost to you, is everlasting, without end, eternal life, provided by His Son, our LORD, Jesus Christ, through His death on the cross. (Romans 6:23 PDCP)
Alternate PDCP: If you allow sin to master you, by serving its desires, then sin will reward you with death, as your compensation; where as, if you choose to accept God’s overture of being joined together with Him in a Holy Union, through His Son Jesus Christ, then, He rewards you with a perpetual, ceaseless, without end, eternal life of joy and perfect bliss. (Rom.6:23 PDCP)
Bottom Line: As we go through the passion week, I believe this particular scripture aptly sums up for us, perfectly, the “why for reason” and the “what for purpose” of the events that transpired during that week. Within the “why for reason,” was; because of the love The Creator has for all of His creation, He wanted to be reunited with them in a joyful and righteous, intimate relationship, in order to once again experience sweet fellowship, which had been broken and utterly destroyed by sin. And, the “why for purpose,” was to restore the relationship, by redeeming them and restoring their life, even eternal life, to His creation. So, Papa God has proffered two distinctly different and starkly contrasting choices for us to choose, as our eternal retirement (benefits/plans) package. One is based entirely on your own individual life and you being paid in full, wages for every sinful behavior, activity, deed, attitude, motive, wrongdoing, wickedness, thought, you may have. While the other, is based entirely on the perfect and sinless life of The Savior, who has paid in full, all that the righteous law of Papa God required, satisfying it completely. Enrollment is presently open to everyone. Everyone that chooses to respond has been pre-approved, pre-qualified and pre-selected, made possible through the death of Papa God’s Son, Jesus Christ, on the cross. A deposit and contribution has been made, by His Spirit, on your behalf, in your name. Papa God’s perfect retirement plan for us is to exchange the wages we would be paid for our sin, for His free gift of salvation and eternal life! Here is the two retirement packages, side by side, to compare, that are proffered, by Papa God, to all of humankind.
*Eternal life………………………………………*Eternal death
*Perfect light…………………………………….*Outer darkness
*No more tears or fears……………………..*Weeping and gnashing of teeth
*Plenty to eat and drink……………………..*Constant hunger and thirst
*Forever in the LORD’S presence………..*Outside the presence of Papa God
*Never alone or lonely………………………..*Lonely and left all alone
*Always joyful and happy……………………*Always depressed and tortured
*Perfect health/glorified body………………*Constant suffering, without relief
*Overwhelming joy and peace……………..*Burning with a fire that never stops
*Clean/clear air and atmosphere………….*Constant stench of burning sulphur
…………………………………………………..and searing flesh
*Completely paid in full, as if………………..*Never ending wages being paid, for
you had never even sinned……………………..every sin you’ve ever committed.
*Forever free………………………………………*Incarcerated forever
One choice leads to hearing: “Well done!” While the other choice leads to hearing: “You’re done in!” Choose wisely, make the smart pick, the wise choice, select the best retirement plan ever provided! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/28/15- “There’s Only Two Options Available To Us, As Believers!” (Romans 8:6-8)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/28/15- “There’s Only Two Options Available To Us, As Believers!” (Romans 8:6-8)
Premise Question: Given the ramifications and resulting repercussions, why would anyone, with any modicum amount of biblical knowledge or acumen, give themselves over to being influenced and controlled by their base sinful nature, rather than submitting and completely yielding themselves over to the influence and control of The Spirit?
So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will. That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God. (Romans 8:6-8 NLT)
So, when you allow your base sinful nature, the one you were born with, to be the controlling dominate influence in your everyday life, by being the determining factor in your decision making and actions you take; it will always lead you to the same place, devastation and death. There is a preferred alternative you can choose though, as a believer and member of The Company of The Redeemed; it is the one with the greatest benefits, for now and eternal blessings to come; it is when you allow The Spirit to be the controlling influence in your everyday life, for when you choose this path, it leads to eternal life, a life that’s filled with joy and peace. Please understand this: your base sinful nature is always going to be an antagonistic, adversarial enemy of Papa God, because it has never and won’t ever come into compliance with Papa God’s righteous laws. And one more thing, this is the very reason why those who persist in their arrogance, insolence and incorrigible self-determined base sinful nature will not ever be pleasing to Papa God. (Romans 8:6-8 PDCP)
Bottom Line: It’s really not too difficult of a proposition to accept, understand and then follow! You either choose the option where you’re controlled by your own sinful thoughts and desires, of your base sinful nature, the one you were born with, we will call this option “BSN,” which stands for, Base Sinful Nature, and always leads to the same place every time; your stubborn, self-determination, which then leads you down the path of depression and despair, with you acting out, with self-destructive tendencies, which brings utter devastation and ultimately eternal death upon yourself. Or, you can choose the preferred alternative option, the one where you yield, in humble submission, to the influence and control of The Spirit, that now, through regeneration, lives within you. We shall call this option “BA,” which stands for, Blessed Adoption, as it too, will always lead to the same place every time, that being, eternal life and peace, with joy and all the blessings and benefits of being adopted, by The LORD! Our goal and aim, in life, should always be, that of being pleasing to The LORD! And this will only be accomplished when we say no to being influenced and controlled by our base sinful nature, and say yes to being influenced and controlled, led and directed, by The Spirit within us, as members of The Company of The Redeemed! So, as believers, there is no other option or way that we should choose, ever! Blessings…
“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. (John 5:24 NIV)
In the fullest and highest degree, I plainly, with the greatest of accuracy, convey to you, that no matter who or whatever person, anyone and everyone, that listens to and takes to heart, My message, as well as, chooses to place their full confidence, with complete trust in Father God, Who dispatched Me here to the earth, will continue to exist, forever and without end throughout all of eternity, and also will not be subject to the righteous requirement of God’s law, but will traverse from one place, the place of receiving our just reward for our wickedness, which is eternal death, to another place, the place of receiving His peace, joy, righteousness and an eternal life of bliss! (John 5:24 PDCP)
