SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/23- “All Who Call!” (Acts 2:21)

Premise Question: Is it actually a possibility for someone to call upon The Name of The LORD for salvation, without ever expressing a believing faith in Him, and still be saved?

But everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.’
(Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭2‬:‭21‬ NLT)

Now hear this! Everyone, anyone, of any race, color or creed, from anywhere and everywhere, here in this world, who cries out, from a heart of humility and contrition, while recognizing and accepting that there is no other Name given to mankind, whereby, one can receive salvation, for He is The LORD of Lords and The King of kings, The One True God, Who was and is and is to come. Call upon His Name and you will and shall forever and ever eternally, without end, be rescued from the power of darkness and the penalty of sin, which is eternal death, hell and the grave—being forever separated from the presence of Papa God! There is no power anywhere that will be able to stop or keep you from being redeemed…SAVED! (Acts 2:21 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Nope, in answer to the premise question! It is not even a remote possibility for someone to be rescued from certain death and eternal separation from the presence of Papa God without a believing faith in His Son, our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ!

But, even though there will be such horribly awful and terrible things happening all around, as the world experiences trouble and is in complete turmoil, anyone and everyone, regardless of their people group, their past or present circumstances or situation, culture or creed, from anywhere and everywhere, it truly does not matter, for if they will humbly, with a contrite heart, cry out in believing faith to The LORD, by simply asking Him to hear their plea for mercy, they shall immediately and absolutely, without a doubt, be eternally recused from certain death and eternal separation from Papa God’s joy filled and wonderful, eternally blissful, presence.

So, the question comes back on us, the members of The Company of The Redeemed. What is our part, our call of duty and obligation, as believers? The Apostle Paul makes the case in Romans chapter 10 for what the honorable right thing and our obligation is for us to be engaged in fully.

According to Paul, no one has the ability to call upon The LORD, to be rescued and saved by Him, unless they believe in Him! And no one can ever possibly believe in Him unless and until they have heard the good news about Him! And, in fact, when they do hear, they will respond, by calling upon His Name to be saved! Furthermore, Paul surmises, it’s not even a remote possibility for anyone to hear about the good news of Jesus Christ unless there is someone who is willing to share it with them!

And finally, there will not be anyone to share the wonderful good news with those who’ve not ever heard, unless and until they are willing to go, and are, in actuality, sent! (Romans 10:14-15)

Now, that being the case, and because of this marvelous and wonderful truth, we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, must have a tantamount sense of duty and joyful obligation, along with great urgency, to go, send and be sent everywhere, for the express purpose of sharing the good news, by telling everyone about Jesus Christ!

Thank Papa God for His lavishing love, His magnificent mercy and glorious grace! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/15- “Revelation Comes Through Our Obedience!” (John 14:21)

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: 04/15- “Revelation Comes Through Our Obedience!” (John 14:21)

Premise Question: What does The LORD Jesus Christ reveal to those that love, accept and obey His commandments?

Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.” (‭John‬ ‭14‬:‭21‬ NLT)

Everyone who has acquired My commandments, by having them in your possession, whether they be in their heart, mind or in some written form, and by consensually acquiescing that they are indeed true; must also devote themselves to coming into compliance with them, by diligently following and deliberately obeying them. This will clearly show and prove that they truly do love Me! And, for this very reason and by virtue of their provable love for Me, My Father, Papa God, will lavish His unconditional, unfailing and forever enduring love upon them. And that’s not all! There’s more, much more! For I, The LORD Jesus Christ, will love them with an everlasting and intimate love, by revealing My full and true self to each one of them, through the gift of My Holy Spirit. (John 14:21 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The full revelation, accompanied with His wonderful blessings and benefits, of knowing intimately who the Savior, our LORD, truly is; only comes through our sincere devotion and obedience to His righteous commandments. For it’s not sufficient enough to merely have in our possession or even know what they are, but, we must also be diligent in our compliance with His commands, following them closely, by obeying them fully, then, by so doing, we will truly show and prove our authentic love for The LORD Jesus Christ.

Again, with obedience comes blessing and benefits, but, with dis-obedience comes curses and consequences…Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 03/21- “Freedom To Serve In Love” (Galatians 5:13)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 03/21- “Freedom To Serve In Love” (Galatians 5:13)

Premise Question: What is the greatest temptation, for the most part, given the blessings that have been bestowed upon us here in America, that The Church has to overcome, in order to fulfill the reason and purpose Papa God has given us the freedom we enjoy?

For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. (‭Galatians‬ ‭5‬:‭13‬ NLT)

The freedom that Papa God has granted all of us to experience, enjoy and live in, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, was not given to us so that we could spend it all upon ourselves, by satisfying and gratifying our own sinful desires of the flesh. Rather, though, it’s been given to us so that we would be fully equipped, with every provision, in order to have the necessary capacity and ability to love and serve others, with the blessings of our freedom. (Galatians 5:13 PDCP)

Bottom Line: I truly believe that The Church in America has been especially blessed, even to the extreme, for the specific divine purpose and reason of having the great ability to bless and reach those who are less fortunate. I believe that Papa God has blessed and given The Church in The United States of America a fiduciary trust. He desires that we be and do good, by being honorable and faithful steward servants, in utilizing what He’s given us to reach and bless those, first, who are amongst us, then, those who are outside the church, and finally, to the rest of the world. So, we’ve been given a choice of how we are going to use our new found freedom and blessings: #1) We can choose to enjoy and use the blessings of our freedom, by spending the biggest portion upon ourselves, building our own kingdoms, by satisfying and fulfilling our own desires, goals and dreams. Or, instead, #2) We can choose to use our new found freedom to love and serve others, by meeting their needs, helping them with an opportunity to get on the path that enables them to experience freedom, and then, to succeed in life; thereby, fulfilling Papa God’s commands, His will and purpose, and one of the main reasons He granted us freedom in the first place, which, if we’ll do, will be highly pleasing to Him. And that’s a good thing! Let’s begin to inquire of The LORD, as to what He wants us to spend and use our freedom and blessings on, rather than always lavishly spending it all upon ourselves. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/14- “No Greater Love!” (John 15:13)

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: 02/14- “No Greater Love!” (John 15:13)

Premise Question: Are there illustrious examples today, that are clearly seen, being put on display, exemplified and recognized, before our very own eyes and ears, that show this kind and level, of the extreme ultimate expression, of sacrificial love, where all is given for another, without expectation of a return, and, with nothing held in reserve, for one’s own regard?

There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. (‭John‬ ‭15‬:‭13‬ NLT)

There never has been, nor will there ever be, a more significant or magnificent display, of the ultimate expression, of true, selfless, sacrificial love, than when someone chooses to lay down their own life, in service, and then, ultimately death, for another. (John 15:13 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Absolute YES! The LORD Jesus Christ is, of course, the greatest example of “No Greater Love,” as He not only laid down His life voluntarily, giving His life, as the ultimate perfect sacrifice, for the redemption of all of humankind, but He also gave up the splendor and majesty of His heavenly throne, humbling Himself, by taking off His regal robes of glory and descending to earth to become just like us, experiencing life in human form and on an earthly level; so that, He could, by laying His life down for us, renew, restore and reconcile us back to Papa God, to forever live in His glorious light and wonderful presence.

The great examples of this kind and expression of love today, I believe, is seen in the way soldiers volunteer to serve their country, family, friends and fellow citizens; willing to lay their lives down in service and death for their fellow soldiers and others. It is also, I believe, seen in the lives of first responders, who daily are asked, by fellow citizens, to put their lives on the line for others, without regard for their own safety. There are many others that could be put up as wonderful examples; such as, all those, from different walks of life, that constantly put the care and welfare of the lives of others before themselves, especially those who put themselves in harms way, when dealing with those who are sick, afflicted, dealing with various kinds of infirmities, are weak and diseased, and doing all of this without any personal regard or safety for themselves.

We all, as fellow believers, ought to be willing to put our lives on the line, in serving and dying for others; for there truly is no greater example of our love for one another, than this: to be willing to die for another. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 02/10- “Controlled By Love—The Love Of Christ!” (2 Corinthians 5:14-15)

POSTED ON FEBRUARY 10, 2015

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/10- “Controlled By Love—The Love Of Christ!” (2 Corinthians 5:14-15)

Premise Question: Is it a real possibility, being that it would actually happen, for authentic believers, (true followers of Christ) to overcome their old nature, (their corrupt spiritual DNA they are born with) and thus, no longer live unto and solely for themselves, but be transformed, by taking on a new nature, (the perfect spiritual DNA of Christ) and live a life that successfully emulates the life of Christ?

Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them. (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭5‬:‭14-15‬ NLT)

Whether you think we are crazy or not, it matters not, because what really matters, is that we allow the love of Christ to control what we say, what we do, and how we live. In as much as, we are fully persuaded that Christ laid His life down, in death, upon the cross, for all of humankind, we are, furthermore, also fully compelled and persuaded that we all have now lain our old lives down, dying to the sinful nature we were born into this world with. Understand this; Christ chose to die for all of humankind, so that anyone who chooses to be transformed, by receiving and accepting a new nature and life from The LORD Jesus Christ, will no longer live their lives unto and for themselves, but will rather, live their lives in total submission to the will and purpose of Christ, Whom offered up His life upon the cross and then, rose from the grave victorious, for all of humankind. (2 Corinthians 5:14-15 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Yes! It is entirely possible, and should be the norm of what is taking place, in all our lives, and for all to see; that being, the transformation and transition from our old nature, the corrupt spiritual DNA we were born into this world with, to a new nature, the one provided for us through and by the death and resurrection of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ, and the empowering and enabling of His Spirit; which is His perfect divine spiritual DNA. But, in order for this transformation and transition to happen, we, as authentic believers and followers of Christ, must choose to yield ourselves completely, no longer being controlled by our old sinful nature, but now being controlled by the divine nature and love of Christ. In order for this to happen, we must first die to our old spiritually corrupt DNA nature, and then, be transformed, by coming alive to the new spiritually divine nature of Christ. For if we are still operating out of our old corrupt DNA nature, then we are not living out of our new divine nature, and therefore, will not produce what is good, right and holy, but will only produce according to our old nature, which is spiritually corrupt! So, for Christ’s sake, and ultimately your sake, choose to die to self and the old corrupt spiritual DNA, and be transformed, by coming alive, being reborn, with a new spiritual divine nature, the DNA of Christ! Our DNA- Damned Nature Already…Christ’s DNA- Divine Nature Always…Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/29- “Living A Life Worthy Of Our High Calling!” (Ephesians 4:1-3)

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: 01/29- “Living A Life Worthy Of Our High Calling!” (Ephesians 4:1-3)

Premise Question: Is it possible to fulfill Papa God’s calling upon our lives, by living and serving The LORD honorably and faithfully, and in the process, to achieve worthwhile success and the favor of The LORD, without the presence of His Godly characteristics, values and qualities of humility, gentleness, meekness, being forbearing, tolerant and long suffering with others, as well as, showing consideration towards them, with a constant effort, on our part, of striving and aiming for harmony and tranquility?

Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭4‬:‭1-3‬ NLT)

I Paul, am presently being held captive, as a prisoner, because of the ministry and high calling of Papa God upon my life. It is therefore, for this reason and at this very moment, that I urgently plead with you to live your life in such a way, that it will be seen and recognized by Papa God, as being honorable and worthy of the high calling He has placed upon your life. I exhort you to always show deferential respect towards others, being amiable, agreeable, gentle and kind. Also, choose to be calm and composed, ever forbearing and tolerant with others, as you make it a common practice of overlooking the faults in others. And, in all of this, do it because of your great undying and unfailing love for Papa God and others. Finally, with due diligence and effort, earnestly strive to keep a perpetual state of harmonious tranquil comfort and peace amongst you. (Ephesians 4:1-3 PDCP)

Bottom Line: In a word, NOPE! For without the presence of Godly characteristics, qualities and values, in our lives, it is entirely impossible to live, in such a way, manner or fashion, that would be counted worthy and recognized favorably, by The LORD, as achieving success in fulfilling the high calling that He has placed placed upon each one of us, in this life. (Ephesians 2:10) The calling of Papa God, on our lives, should never be looked upon, as being a great career move, wonderful occupation, an exciting vocation, or desirable profession or a great and wonderful job to pursue. But, should always be approached with great gravity and should never be entered into lightly, as it must be accepted, as being from The LORD, with humility and gratitude, and as being your life’s work, your mission and ultimate pursuit and ambition in and for this life. The calling of The LORD comes with a personal TAG from Him, that with His help, we are to develop and grow up into, by fully maturing. The TAG is: Talents, Abilities and Gifts, conferred upon us, by Him, that enables and empowers us to accomplish all that our calling may entail. One more thing, it should never be our aim, ambition or intention, to climb the proverbial “corporate ladder,” while serving and carrying out the high calling that Papa God has placed upon our lives!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/17- “Our Love For Papa God And Our Love For Fellow Believers, Must Be Synonymous!” (1 John 4:21)

Premise Question: Tell me again, why is this command, so vitally critical and most important to accept, understand, come into agreement with and into complete compliance?

And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister. (‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭21‬ NIV)

This vital and most critically important command, that Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, has given to each and every member of The Company of The Redeemed is: Anyone, meaning everyone, without exception, who says they love Papa God, must also, with the same love, express, show and have love towards each and every member of The Company of The Redeemed, their fellow believers. (1 John 4:21 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Love for our fellow believers, which are our most precious and dearly beloved brothers and sisters, must be one and the same, without exception, as it is for our Papa God, Whom personally implemented this divine rule, that must be followed, with strict adherence and full compliance. Blessings…
