SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/31/15- “Papa God’s Holy Light Living Inside Of Us!” (John 8:12)
Premise Question: Is it possible for a person to be unaware that they’re even unaware of the darkness and depravity they’re living in, even to the point of fully believing, thinking, determining and then accepting, that the darkness and depravity that they’re living in is full of light and life; when in reality, is actually full of eternal death, annihilation and utter destruction?
“Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” (John 8:12 NLT)
When Jesus again, began to address those who had gathered in the temple courts, at the break of dawn, to hear Him teach and expound upon the Scriptures; He declared unto them without equivocation, but with exactness and clarity, “I Am the resplendent radiance and source of all life and light in the world. For I Am not only the igniter and spark of life, but the total illumination of all enlightenment. I Am the blaze that has been burning even before time began, as the eternal flame, never to be extinguished holy fire of The Almighty Sovereign LORD GOD. Therefore, whoever chooses to pursue Me, with their whole being, spirit, soul and body, will never be hopelessly lost, stumbling around in the darkness and depravity of this world, with it’s perverse system, but will have Papa God’s Holy Light, living inside of them, leading, guiding and directing their steps, in this life.” (John 8:12 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Yes, I believe it is possible to be so unaware of your surroundings that you are completely deluded and deceived and literally unaware that you are in darkness, without the ability to clearly see or perceive the depth of depravity and darkness that is all encompassing, enveloping and pervading every part of your life! It’s been said; “how great the darkness must be that is called light!” We are even warned about the evil one that may appear to be light and full of life, but in reality is only full of lies, deceit and empty promises of satisfaction and fulfillment, and only always delivers a life full of shame, degradation, guilt, remorse, spiritual depravity and ultimately a loss of everything, leading to eternal death and separation from the glorious, full of tranquil peace and refreshing joy, of the presence of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty. Thank You Papa God, that You sent The Light that shone in the land full of darkness and that the people living there in the darkness can now see The Light and be led out of the captivity and depravity of the darkness, to be completely set free, to walk, live and flourish, in The Light of Your presence, by having every step they take in this life, being directed, led and guided, by the presence of Your Light and Spirit living in them, to do Your will, fulfill Your purpose and to be pleasing to You in all that they will ever do and say. Dear LORD GOD, Light of the world, shine Your Light through all of us into this world and into the lives of those that are being held captive, in its darkness and depravity, in order to bring release and deliverance to all those who are unaware that they’re even unaware of the depth of the darkness and depravity that is having a huge influence and significant impact upon them!

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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/04/15- “The Spirit Of Papa God Gives Life!” (Romans 8:11)
Premise Question: Besides the obvious and most excellent benefit of receiving everlasting life; what is the greatest benefit, being the most helpful one, for living our lives now, that we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, have received as a direct result of having The Spirit of Papa God living in our finite, being perishable, earthly bodies?
The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you. (Romans 8:11 NLT)
Not only have you been put right with Papa God, but when His Spirit, The Holy Spirit, which is the One who was charged with the responsibility of restoring life back into The Savior’s deceased earthly body, by raising Him up from the grave, has taken up permanent residence within you; then, you too shall have your finite, being temporal and perishable, earthly body restored back to life, in the very same way and manner that The LORD had His earthly body restored, as this also is accomplished by and through the same Spirit of Papa God that now lives and resides within the within of your innermost being. (Romans 8:11)
Bottom Line: The greatest benefit that we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed have and enjoy, is full, free and unfettered access to the empowering presence, comfort and refreshing, as well as, the divine guidance and wisdom of Papa God’s Spirit, The Holy Spirit; who helps us to overcome and be victorious in every area of our lives, but especially in the intense struggle that rages within each one of us, between our old sinful nature and its desires and our new life and its new nature, that desires to honor and please Papa God. Therefore, we ought to continually thank Papa God for His life giving Spirit that lives deep within the within of our innermost beings. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 03/27/15- “Beyond Eager To Know And Obey Your Word!” (Psalms 119:36-37)
Premise Question: What activity, desire, goal or aim or relationship, in this life, that we could chase after, strive for or be involved in, would yield more, with the greatest and most advantageous benefits for living a flourishing, successful life, now and in the life to come, than being eager to know and obey Papa God’s Word?
Give me an eagerness for your laws rather than a love for money! Turn my eyes from worthless things, and give me life through your word. (Psalms 119:36-37 NLT)
Grant me a voracious appetite, Papa God, that is far greater, in scope and magnitude, than for any other strong affectionate affinity, that I may be overwhelmed or consumed with, in this world, including money; that I may always desire to devour Your precepts, statues and commands! I ask You, Papa God, to give me the desire, fortitude and discernment, to always avert my attention, my gaze, focus and unhealthy infatuations, away from those things that are set before my eyes, in this life, that are despicable in Your eyes; things that are of no use, are devoid of any intrinsic value, being completely empty and futile, but, please do continue, Papa God, to grant me a life full of meaning and value, through Your vivacious life giving, satisfying and fulfilling, Word. (Psalms 119:36-37 PDCP)
Bottom Line: According to Papa God’s Word, nothing compares with eagerly desiring to know Him intimately and to fulfilling His will and purpose, for our lives, by obeying, adhering and following closely, His precepts, statues and commands found within His Holy Writ; for no life lived without His love, mercy and grace, His guidance and direction, His peace, joy and comfort, is a life lived to the maximum enjoyment, for this life and the life to come! Blessings…
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 03/26/15- “I Shall Not Ever Forget!” (Psalms 119:93)
Premise Question: Why, how and for what reasons should we never forget the commandments of Papa God?
I will never forget your commandments, for by them you give me life. (Psalms 119:93 NLT)
I, with a diligently devoted heart, shall always carefully choose to follow closely, Papa God, Your life giving precepts, Your wonderful statutes, and without defects, perfect commandments; without any delay or procrastination, by treasuring them and making sure not to ever neglect, dismiss, discount, put aside, ignore or in anywise or manner, disregard or compromise them in anyway. (Psalms 119:93 PDCP)
Bottom Line: WHY, we should never forget: First and foremost, is because they are Papa God’s commandments that He’s given to us to follow and obey and that, with great benefits. Secondly, is because they are full of life that remains and sustains us, keeping us pure. HOW, we should never forget: By committing to memory, internalizing and personalizing, Papa God’s holy commandments, they will continually revive us, causing us to thrive in any and all situations and circumstances, that we may face or go through in life. For WHAT reasons, should we never forget: Life is more vivacious and vibrant, filled with enjoyment, satisfaction and fulfillment, because we follow Papa God’s commandments! They also are filled with His complete joy, His perfect peace, His courage, common sense and divine wisdom, keeping us from lying to ourselves and others, which is desperately needed, in order to live and flourish in this life! Just a few reasons we should not ever forget Papa God’s commandments. Blessings…

Whoever pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor. (Proverbs 21:21 NIV)
It matters not who you are, or from whence you came, for if you choose to strive to gain, following hard after, in order to attain, right and just living, as well as, God’s unfailing, unqualified, freely given redemptive love, that endures forever, you shall prosper; enjoying and experiencing to the fullest, a life filled with His goodness, His love, joy, peace and honor. (Proverbs 21:21 PDCP)
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, (Titus 2:11, 12 NIV)
For the manifestation of God’s unmerited favor, His mercy and grace, has become visibly clear, for all to see and perceive, that His offering up of His only Son, Jesus Christ, upon the cross, is an offer of redemption to all of mankind. He has accomplished this, by removing the penalty of sin, which is utter destruction and eternal death. It gives instruction to each of us, on how to refrain from involving ourselves in insufferable, sinfully wicked acts and powerfully luring, seductively earthly, mundane pleasures, and the power to live a life that restrains and denies the self, thus giving us the ability to live a rectitude godly life, in this present age and the age to come, (Titus 2:11, 12 PDCP)
