SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/07/15- “Jesus Is Grace And Truth Personified, In Full Measure!” (John 1:14)
Premise Question: Is it possible to administer or experience Papa God’s wonderful grace without also applying and fully accepting His infallible and inalterable truth?
“So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.” (John 1:14 NLT)
The Eternal Word, at the behest of The Eternal Almighty Sovereign Father God, chose to empty Himself of His position, His glory and might, to move into a tent of flesh and blood, so that, He could move into the neighborhood of humankind, the earth, taking up residence, by walking, breathing and living amongst us, as a good neighbor. We can personally attest to this being the absolute truth, as we had the great privilege and honor of having observed and experienced up close, with our own eyes, His splendor, His majestic magnificence and incomparable glory; as The One and Only Son, who came down from Heaven from The Eternal Almighty Sovereign Father God and who is the exact representation, the personification of The Supreme Sovereign Potentate, Almighty Father God, being completely filled, in full measure, with gracious favor, unfailing loving kindness and genuinely authentic, righteous virtue, which is the infallible and only real truth. (John 1:14 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Nope! It is not possible to administer or experience Papa God’s grace without also accepting and applying His infallible and inalterable truth in full measure! For the true reality of Jesus Christ coming in the flesh, living among us, is the perfect picture of authentic faithfulness, without any bit of phoniness, and also is completely overflowing with rectitude. For The LORD Jesus Christ was filled with both grace and truth, in full measure! Therefore, Papa God’s grace is not, can not, nor shall ever be experienced or administered as His grace, without also, His truth being fully accepted and applied in full measure. Nor is truth ever going to be truth, without grace being present, at the same time, in full measure. Grace and Truth must both be present, at the same time and in full measure, in order for either one to be Papa God’s true wonderful grace and His real authentic truth. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/07/15- “We Suffer Now, Revel In Glory Later!” (Romans 8:18)
Premise Question: Does everyone suffer in the same way during their time here on earth and do all receive the same glory and recognition in the future?
Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. (Romans 8:18 NLT)
After careful thought and consideration, I firmly believe and am fully convinced, that our present existing trials and tribulation, with their intolerable conditions of excruciating pain, agonizing distress, along with the great loss and unpleasantness we are even now experiencing, cannot, should not, and in fact, is not even the slightest bit significant or important enough to justify, in any way shape or form, when comparing them side by side, with the immeasurable, incalculable, magnificently distinctive in renown, resplendent glory that will be made known and personally revealed in each one of us, The Company of The Redeemed, later on, at the appointed time. (Romans 8:18 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Not everyone will experience suffering and loss in the same way or in the same degree during their time here on earth; nor will everyone receive the same glory, rewards and distinctive recognition later on, at the appointed time, in the future. But, everyone will suffer in some way or another and at some point and in some degree during their time here on earth. The great and wonderfully encouraging news flash is though; that all those who share in the suffering of The LORD will also share in His resplendent glory, as well! For our suffering now, is nothing when compared to the glory to be revealed and received by us later on! We will surely suffer now, but we shall also certainly revel in a future glory, at a future time, where we will be clothed and regaled with the magnificence and resplendent glory of The LORD! The suffering we experience now cannot even begin to be compared, as it is not even worthy of comparison, with the glory, rewards and recognition that we’ll receive later on! The greater the suffering now, the greater the glory, recognition and reward later on! (2 Corinthians 4:16-18, Matthew 5:12) I personally came to the full acceptance and realization of this great and encouraging principle and truth during the time I watched my precious and greatly beloved wife and mother of my children, Cynthia, go through suffering that was beyond belief and too difficult to explain or understand; for it was more than I could endure and much more than I had ever seen anyone go through before or since! It was during that time and right after though, that The LORD opened the eyes of my heart and understanding, so that I could clearly see and perceive, with great insight and a deep understanding, that ultimately He was going to use it all for His glory and purpose, as well as, the tremendous gracious benefit of my beloved wife. For one day, in the future and at the appointed time, I will see with my own eyes, the glory of The LORD upon His faithful and enduring great suffering servant Cynthia, as I too will one day stand before The LORD, The One who is our loving, full of gracious favor and great mercy, our Savior, who is ever faithful to His Word and every promise therein, and shall then receive the glory, rewards and recognition that shall far outweigh and exceed any suffering I endured and experienced during my stay and sojourn here upon this earth. We will suffer now, but later on, we shall revel in His glory! Hallelujah! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/29/15- “All Glory Belongs To Him!” (Romans 15:7)
Premise Question: In practice, what does it actually mean for us, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, to welcome and receive each other, by being completely accepting and approving of one another, just in the same way and manner that Christ has welcomed, received, accepted and approved each one of us?
Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory. (Romans 15:7 NLT)
Receive and welcome one another with open arms and hearts full of gracious approval and favor, undertaking, with great joy, the responsibilities and duties required for full acceptance, therein; just in the same way and manner that Christ, who endured The Cross and all of its shame and suffering, in order to provide everyone an encouraging blessed hope, accepts you. Consequently then, as a direct result of doing this, it establishes a mandate of conveying all glory, with one mind and voice, an offering of tribute, with great laudation, spoken and sung, from grateful hearts, filled with thanksgiving and exalted praise, unto The Most High and Glorious, Papa God! (Romans 15:7 PDCP)
Bottom Line: In practice, Jesus Christ actually welcomed, accepted, received and approved each one of us, when we were at our very worst. He was and still is, full of favor and compassion, grace and mercy, all because of His great and unfailing love that He has for all of humankind. Now, it is our turn to reciprocate the unfailing love Jesus Christ has shown toward us, by having the same welcoming love and acceptance, with compassion, mercy, gracious favor, long suffering and forbearance, as well as, a heart that is always ready to forgive and walk in release towards one another; even when it’s most difficult to do so, because of our patience and kindness being severely tested, which may make it not easy or the most pleasant thing to endure and accomplish. We must learn to do it, though, with joy, just as The LORD did!
If we are living our lives, in order to please ourselves, rather than living our lives to, first and foremost, please Papa God and then also to help each other grow and be built up in Him, we won’t succeed in what The LORD has purposed and planned for our lives. But, when we choose to accept one another, as Jesus Christ has already accepted each one of us, it will always result in bringing all honor, praise and glory to Papa God! Blessings…

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14 NIV)
The Eternal Word, at the behest of The Eternal Almighty Sovereign Father God, chose to empty Himself of His position, His glory and might, to move into a tent of flesh and blood, so that, He could move into the neighborhood of humankind, the earth, taking up residence, by walking, breathing and living amongst us, as a good neighbor. We can personally attest to this being the absolute truth, as we had the great privilege and honor of having observed and experienced up close, with our own eyes, His splendor, His magnificence and incomparable glory, as The One and Only Son, who came down from Heaven from The Eternal Almighty Sovereign Father God and who is the exact representation, the personification of The Supreme Sovereign Potentate, Almighty Father God, being completely filled, in full measure, with gracious favor, unfailing loving kindness and genuine, authentic, full of righteous virtue, the infallible truth. (John 1:14 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The reality of Jesus Christ coming in the flesh, living among us, is the perfect picture of authentic faithfulness, without any bit of phoniness, and also is completely overflowing with rectitude, for The LORD Jesus Christ was filled with both grace and truth, in full measure; because grace is not grace, without truth in full measure, nor is truth ever going to be truth, without grace, in full measure, there must be both present, in full measure, in order for either one to be grace and truth. Blessings…
Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. (1 Chronicles 29:11 NIV)
The immensity and sheer magnitude of Your greatness, O LORD, belongs only to You, for their is no one like You. The capabilities and potency of Your power is infinite and unequalled and Your magnificence, displayed in all of Your regal glory, is transcendent and majestic to behold, and Your stately splendor, in all of its grandeur and brilliance, is spectacularly resplendent, being beyond compare; for the aggregate of all things, whether in Heaven or on earth, is Yours and Yours alone, O LORD, no one else has even the slightest of claim upon Your Kingdom, Your Realm and Domain; For Your dominion, reign and preeminence extends beyond Heaven and earth, for You are elevated high above everything and everyone, as The Supreme, August Ruler over all. (1 Chronicles 29:11 PDCP)
And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified. What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:30, 31 NIV)
What should our disposition, our mindset and declarative speech be, with regards to The One True Sovereign God’s supreme plan of choosing us, then calling us and making us to be in right standing before Him, giving us heavenly dignity, by clothing us with His Glory? Well, it’s with absolute confidence, unqualified assurance and armed with a resplendent golden guarantee, that we can boldly, with courage, speak this truth; when The Almighty Lord God is standing with us, there is nothing, not a person, event, circumstance, situation, challenge, problem or any situation we might find ourselves to be in, or that may come against us, whereby, we won’t ultimately be victorious! (Romans 8:30, 31 PDCP)
