SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/07/15- “Blinded By The Light, That Gives Us Sight!” (1 Peter 2:9)
Premise Question: What are we, The Company of The Redeemed, not like; why are we not like that, what and who are we likened to, and for what specific reason and divine purpose is there, as well it should be, such a stark contrast and obvious difference between the two?
“But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.” (1 Peter 2:9 NLT)
But you, The Company of The Redeemed, have the unique distinction of being a most preferred selected people, in the lineage of priests that are directly related to royalty; therefore, you have been declared sacred, as a dedicated people group, purchased by The Almighty Sovereign Papa God, as His own precious, valuable treasure, so that you may put on display, with fanfare, a very public extolling, with great enthusiasm, the goodness and greatness of a loving, filled with grace and merciful Papa God, who has summoned you to come out of darkness, no longer being held captive and blinded by its evil power and authority, but rescued, delivered and given new sight, by being brought into His magnificently marvelous, gloriously wonderful, supremely brilliant, excellent light. (1 Peter 2:9 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We, The Company of The Redeemed, are not anything like those who rejected The Cornerstone of the Holy Temple that’s being built by Papa God Himself. For they were the very ones that were initially given the incredible responsibility and blest opportunity to be the builders of The Temple of God, but instead, they chose to reject, despise and hate Him, Jesus Christ, whom Papa God has personally chosen for great honor and glory. We, on the other hand, are not like those who choose to reject and despise Papa God’s magnanimous overture of unfailing love, His incredible grace, marvelous mercy and His great favor shown towards humankind, offering them salvation, deliverance and redemption; for we are likened to being living stones, Papa God’s own possession, a holy nation of people that are purchased and paid for through redemption. We have been personally chosen by Papa God, to serve as holy priests in His Holy Temple; offering up our individual spiritual sacrifices of praise and worship, to The King Eternal, which pleases Papa God greatly! So, because we have chosen to accept, believe, obey and receive Jesus Christ, as The Cornerstone of The Holy Temple being built by Papa God, which He is erecting with each of us, as individual living stones, we will not ever stumble, be crushed or disgraced by The Rock, which will fall upon and crush all those who reject Him. But we, who have chosen to fall upon The Rock, are now able to stand firm, tall and strong upon The Solid Rock, which is Jesus Christ, The Cornerstone of the Spiritual Temple being built by Papa God. Finally, the specific reason and divine purpose there is such a stark contrast and difference between those of us who are members of The Company of The Redeemed and who’ve accepted the goodness of Papa God and His Son Jesus Christ, as The Cornerstone, and those who’ve chosen to reject the goodness of Papa God and His Son, as The Cornerstone of Papa God’s Holy Temple, can be likened to the contrast and difference one can obviously see between darkness and light. Those who reject Jesus Christ, The Cornerstone of The Holy Temple, are choosing to stay in the depravity of the darkness of this world, and therefore, shall never experience being delivered out of darkness into Papa God’s wonderful light and will be forever blind, without the benefit derived from being blinded by Papa God’s Holy Light and then being delivered out of the depravity of darkness into His wonderful light! But not so for us who have personally experienced being delivered from the depravity of darkness into Papa God’s glorious and wonderful light, for once we were blind, but now We can see! Choose this day to open your eyes to The LORD, to be blinded by the light that gives you sight, The light of the world, Jesus Christ, and be set free to see and be, letting your light shine bright for all to see! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/27/15- “Make Your Mark, Love The Light, Despise The Dark, Do What’s Right!” (John 3:20-21)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/27/15- “Make Your Mark, Love The Light, Despise The Dark, Do What’s Right!” (John 3:20-21)
Premise Question: How can we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, leave an indelible mark in this world, so that everyone will see, the flame of our devotion, of our love and delight, for God’s Holy Light. And, shall also see, our intense dislike, disgust and detestation for sinful depravity, done in the dark?
All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed. But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants. ” (John 3:20-21
Those who participate in depraved evil activities, despise the light and thus, refrain from doing what’s right; staying far removed, away from the light, not wanting their darkness, exposed in the light, to be seen by all, for the evil it is. But, there are those, who love the truth, which is the light, and with their lives, choose to be honorable, giving due diligence, with great delight, to do what is right; allowing God’s Light, to prove their trueheartedness, that all they have done, was in fulfilling their duty, in reverent deference, to God’s Holy Light. (John 3:20-21 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We will leave an indelible mark, when we allow everything that we do, be proved to be true, honorable and right, by bringing it all, out into the light. In obedience to God, when all is done right, everyone will see and be drawn into His Holy Light; to be forever changed, delivered and set free, from the depravity and darkness, to be clothed, with God’s Glory and Light! Blessings…
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:5 NIV)
The visible radiance of the illuminating light of the world, the person of Jesus Christ, The One True God, has come forth, shinning in all of His splendor and magnificent brilliance, dispelling the darkness of the enemy of our souls, and its evil wickedness, dispatching, conquering and overcoming the darkness completely, because, in the conflict and struggle between light and darkness, light is always the victor. (John 1:5 PDCP)
