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. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 03/01- “Let The Whole World Know!” (Psalm 105:1)

Premise Question: Why are we, as believers, to be the source of giving thanks and making huge announcements and proclamations, and then, broadcast and spread it near and far, by telling who, what, when and where?

Give thanks to the LORD and proclaim his greatness. Let the whole world know what he has done. (‭Psalms‬ ‭105‬:‭1‬ NLT)

Offer your heartfelt thanks, with expressions of gratitude, to Papa God, and extol the enormity of the Good News of His infinite mercy, grace and unfailing love, by announcing and declaring it far and wide, broadcasting and spreading it everywhere to everyone; so that, they may also have the blessed opportunity, as well, to become aware of, comprehending, with understanding, and then, ultimately, believing, accepting, and receiving, all that Papa God has accomplished and done for them. (Psalms 105:1 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Why, who, what, when and where? Because of who Papa God is and what He has accomplished for everyone, by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, into the whole world, for the express purpose of redeeming all of humankind, and, because He has preordained and commissioned us, His adopted children, to be the primary source of delivering the Good News to everyone everywhere; meaning, every people group, every nation, kindred, tongue and tribe, anywhere and everywhere on the face of planet earth; and, by what ever means possible, even shouting (broadcasting) the Good News from the tallest buildings, the highest mountain peeks, declaring and making it known, even in the lowest valleys and the most remote islands and jungles, of this planet, as well as, the desolate deserts, that are out of the way, being extremely difficult to reach and have access to, any and all places that are inhabited by humankind. We, The Company of The Redeemed, are to give thanks, announce and declare through proclamations, by using any and every means available and possible to us, to send, broadcast and to go and tell of the Great and Glorious Good News, spreading it throughout the entire world, telling of all that Almighty Papa God has accomplished for all of humankind! There is a divine reason, a holy purpose and use for all the radio towers, tv towers, launched satellites orbiting the earth, and the millions of miles of cable run, not even to mention, The World Wide Web! We’ve been given the tools, the resources, the humankind power, but most importantly, the message of The Good News, with the anointing and power of The Holy Spirit to do it! So, let’s just do it, NOW! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/30- “Papa God’s Righteous Law Reveals Our Sin, But His Grace Rules!” (Romans 5:20-21)

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: 01/30- “Papa God’s Righteous Law Reveals Our Sin, But His Grace Rules!” (Romans 5:20-21)

Premise Question: Without Papa God’s Holy Law, how would we ever know that we are sinful, and are therefore, hopelessly and desperately lost; and, without Papa God’s redeeming grace, how could we ever possibly know and personally experience, His unfailing love and His magnanimous mercy?

God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (‭Romans‬ ‭5‬:‭20-21‬ NLT)

Papa God introduced His righteous law to all of humankind, in order to fully expose sin and it’s overpowering deathly influence and effect it had upon them; both as individuals and humankind on the whole. Seemingly, though, humankind took up the challenge of testing the boundaries of Papa God’s righteous law and His marvelous grace, finding that the more they gave themselves over to the sin within, the more exponentially Papa God’s wonderful grace would greatly increase and abound. So, here is revelation: at one time, sin was able to rule humankind with absolute impunity and implicit authority, (with an iron fist) ultimately delivering them to death and eternal damnation. But, everything has changed now, for the paradigm has shifted, whereby, Papa God has now introduced His awesome grace to rule and reign over sin, in our lives, through His Son, Jesus Christ, our LORD and Savior, which now enables us to be restored back into Papa God’s good graces, in order to be in right relationship with Him, so that we can spend eternity with Him in His everlasting joy and eternal presence. (Romans 5:20-21 PDCP)

Bottom Line: I just want to simply say…Thank You Papa God, for loving me and all of humankind enough, that You introduced Your Righteous Law to us, making our sin and the impending result of it, painfully obvious to us, and then, Thank You Papa God for Your Amazing Grace, Your unfailing love and Your magnanimous mercy shown us, by sending Your Son, Jesus Christ, to satisfy completely, the righteous requirements of Your Holy Law, so consequently, now, I and every other member of humankind, have the gracious and blessed opportunity afforded us, to escape certain death and damnation and enjoy eternal bliss, in Your Magnificently Glorious, Everlasting Presence! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/12/15- “Finish Strong, Complete Your Divine Assignment!” (Acts 20:24)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/12/15- “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 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! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/10/15-“Jesus Christ, The One True Light Of The World!” (John 1:8)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/10/15- “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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/14/15- “Be Bold, Be Strong, Unafraid And Unashamed! (Romans 1:16)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/14/15- “Be Bold, Be Strong, Unafraid And Unashamed!” (Romans 1:16)

Premise Question: Why would anyone, who has already experienced, and is actually in the know, ever succumb to being afraid or ashamed of sharing openly, with those who are in desperate need, the very thing, (the Good News of Jesus Christ) that will truly deliver and set them completely free, giving and granting them an everlasting life full of love, joy and peace forevermore?

“For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile.”
(‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:16‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

I am more than eager and well prepared to share, with anyone and everyone, at anytime and everywhere, without any hesitation, reservation or restraint, holding nothing back in reserve, but with an openness and boldness, being ever ready to declare, for all to see, hear and know, of my undying devotion and allegiance to The Gospel of Jesus Christ, the most excellent and incredible Good News, (the best ever in the history of the world) given to humankind; whereby, anyone and everyone, no matter what nation or station in life one hails from, all those who will embrace The Good News, by placing their complete trust and reliance in The LORD Jesus Christ and the incomparable, unsurpassed power of Papa God, which brings freedom, deliverance and salvation to everyone, shall be set free for all eternity: first, to those He first appeared to, the Jews, and then, to every other nation and people group in the world. (Romans 1:16 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Perhaps, some of us are afraid and ashamed, at times, and are therefore, then prone to be subject to, and succumb to, the lies and pressures of the influences that surround us; such as, family or peer pressure, the culture, social mores, what may be accepted as popular or unpopular, couth or uncouth, cool or uncool, or even because we may be fearful of being embarrassed, ridiculed, shamed, persecuted, or that we may in some way suffer harm, for our faith, beliefs, practices, standards and way of life. Whatever the case, we do not really have any valid reason to ever be subject to or succumb to, being afraid or ashamed; for as Papa God’s Holy Writ clearly says, as well as, strongly encourages us to accept and believe: “If Papa God Is for us, (and He absolutely most assuredly is) then who could ever be against us!” No one and nothing! Therefore, because we are inspired and filled with the power and personal presence of The Holy Spirit, within the within of our innermost being, we should, can and ought to become strong and bold, courageous and fearless, in sharing the Good News of The LORD Jesus Christ; who is the only One who can release, deliver and set humankind free, from the power of sin and the influence of darkness and the evil one! And remember, Papa God has commissioned us, The Company of The Redeemed, with this great and vital divine mission of sharing the Good News with those that are lost; whose deliverance and salvation is actually depending on us being bold, strong, unafraid and unashamed!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/02/15- “We Will Not Remain Unchanged!” (2 Corinthians 3:18)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/02/15- “We Will Not Remain Unchanged!” (2 Corinthians 3:18)

Premise Question: How are we transformed and changed into the very image of The LORD, and what is our part, in the overall process?

“So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.” (‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭3:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

And we, the whole number of The Company of The Redeemed, no longer having faces that are hidden behind a veil, but are now uncovered and bare, should then now consider, with great thought and deliberation, the magnificent reflection on display, of The LORD’S Glory, which is presently transforming us completely, changing our appearance, our nature and our character into His Image, empowering and enabling the miraculous process of gradually becoming more and more like Him, with an ever-increasing, glory releasing, freedom experiencing, life; which comes from The LORD and Savior of all, Jesus Christ—who is The Way, The Truth and The Spirit—that releases and sets us, all of humankind, free. (2 Corinthians 3:18 PDCP)

Bottom Line: It is only through the power and presence of The LORD’S Spirit, being allowed to operate and function, during the ongoing, moment by moment, daily work, that only The Spirit can do and accomplish, in the process of the complete and glorious transformation that takes place in the life of each and every individual believer, who is a blood bought, sin removed, made new, member of The Company of The Redeemed! Our part is to allow the miraculous transformation to take place, by first deliberately yielding our will, our desires and our lives to The LORD, through placing our hope, trust and faith in The LORD, through sincere confession, real repentance and a moment by moment, daily entering into His presence, seeking His face and living our lives for Him, desiring to do His will and fulfill His purpose for our lives; to always honor His Name, and with diligence, to earnestly live a life that will be pleasing to Him; one that will always bring The LORD glory, honor and praise; as we should always choose to walk in His love and release towards others, for the only thing that really matters is our transforming faith expressing itself in humility and love. We shall not remain unchanged, but shall be transformed into The LORD’S glorious image! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/29/15- “Just Live Life By Faith!” (Romans 1:17)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/29/15- “Just Live Life By Faith!” (Romans 1:17)

Premise Question: Why is it so difficult for some of us, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, to figure out and finally come to the full realization and truth of how important it is to just live life by faith?

“This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.” (‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

As has already been established, The Good News was sent by The Most High Sovereign Almighty Papa God, Creator of Heaven and earth, to the earth, on behalf of all of humankind, for the divine purpose of revealing His righteousness and redeeming His very own fallen creation. Papa God sent, in the form of a humble servant, His Only Son, known to us as The Christ, Jesus of Nazareth, our LORD and Savior. This righteous Good News, that came from Papa God, must initially be personally and individually accepted by faith, and then, lived out by faith, throughout the entire sojourn here upon the earth. For just as it has been faithfully recorded and written down, in Papa God’s Holy Writ, by His anointed prophet Habakkuk: “Shun evil and choose to live by faith and you shall not only survive, but flourish, because those who live a righteous life, live their individual life by faith. And, in so doing, are faithful to The One who gives them life. So, whatever you do in life, just remember to do it by living by faith; the faith of a person who has been made right in the sight of Papa God, from start to finish, by initially putting their faith in The LORD and then continuing to have faith in The LORD, throughout their entire life, and you will enjoy and experience everlasting life.” (Romans 1:17 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Whenever anyone, who is a member of The Company of The Redeemed, attempts to go it alone and do life their own way, without the vital and significant input of The LORD, by choosing to live their life outside the parameters of what The Creator has spoken in His Holy Writ, which clearly delineates His divinely purposed and divinely designed plan for His unique and greatly loved creation, humankind; then the difficulties will abound and the cause and effect results begin to surround, pressing in all around! Life is difficult enough on its own, but when we refuse The LORD’S help, wisdom, instruction, counsel and life giving advice, then we make it all the more difficult! The reality is; we will not ever be successful in figuring out life until we figure out, that what needs to be figured out is that we must, if we are going to have and live the life that Papa God desires, has purposed and has divinely designed for us to fully enjoy and experience, is that it’s not going to ever happen until and unless we choose to surrender our lives to living a life of faith, in The LORD, and then, just live our life by faith! Blessings…
