SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/22/15- “Obedience Produces Blessings And Benefits, While Disobedience Results In Producing Curses And Consequenses! (John 3:36)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/22/15- “Obedience Produces Blessings And Benefits, While Disobedience Results In Producing Curses And Consequences!” (John 3:36)
Premise Question: What are some of the actual blessings and benefits of choosing to believe in and obeying Papa God’s Son, Jesus Christ; versus, the very real curses and consequences that come as a result of deciding not to believe in, nor obey Papa God’s Son?
“And anyone who believes in God’s Son has eternal life. Anyone who doesn’t obey the Son will never experience eternal life but remains under God’s angry judgment.” (John 3:36 NLT)
Whoever, wherever and whenever, chooses to place their reliance and complete trust in the only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, of The One True Sovereign Papa God Almighty, has already attained and secured their place in an eternity filled with eternal bliss and everlasting joy; to forever rejoice and celebrate in the glorious presence of The LORD GOD Almighty. But, whoever deliberately chooses to turn away from Papa God Almighty’s loving and gracious, most merciful provision of escape from death, by refusing to obey His Son, will not experience the fullness of joy and life everlasting and thus, will be subject to the full weight and brunt of The Almighty’s righteous judgement of sin; thereby, suffering the dire punishment and consequences of their rejection and disobedience. (John 3:36 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The actual blessings and benefits of believing in and obeying Papa God’s Son are: First and foremost, the powerful grip that sin and darkness holds upon our lives, is forever irrevocably broken, never to be rescinded, as we are completely set free; to breathe, to live, to worship, to enjoy life to its fullest, in a meaningful and purposeful way, knowing real refreshing peace and true satisfying love, as well as having the blessed opportunity of being able to become all that we have been divinely designed and purposed to fulfill and become, by thoroughly experiencing and accomplishing all of this, not only in this life, but in the life still to come!
The very real curses and consequences, that come as a direct result of disobeying, rejecting, not believing and accepting Papa God’s gracious provision of salvation and escape, that He is offering through His Son, is: Eternal separation from the very real, absolutely necessary and highly desired, everlasting presence of The Almighty! And, as a consequence of not believing in and obeying Papa God’s Son, Jesus Christ, the curse of death and sin will remain upon an individual’s life and they will therefore, be subject to and shall be relegated to forever experiencing eternal death, destruction, degradation, distress, painful and torturous punishment without end, as well as forever having to experience and go through, without any relief or respite, agony, anger, full of resentment, remorse, self-hate and loathsome shame, always being hungry and thirsty, without ever receiving any satisfaction, joy, peace or fulfillment! Let us all choose to believe and obey, in order to experience the blessings and benefits and thereby, avoid the very real curses and consequences of not believing and obeying! Blessings…
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/30/15- “Integrity To Follow, Obey, Seek!” (Psalm 119:1-2)
Premise Question: As a member of The Company of The Redeemed, what must one do, in order to enjoy and experience fully, Papa God’s gracious favor, and the wonderful resulting blessings and benefits that the presence of the joy of The LORD, in one’s life, faithfully produces on a daily basis?
“Joyful are people of integrity, who follow the instructions of the LORD. Joyful are those who obey his laws and search for him with all their hearts.” (Psalms 119:1-2 NLT)
Most highly favored, filled with blissful joy, are those who choose to conduct their lives in a habitual manner of walking in integrity, in every area of their lives; in complete agreement and harmony with, while being ever influenced and guided by, the Holy Instructions of The Sovereign LORD God Almighty. Most highly favored, filled with blissful joy, are those who choose to follow closely, holding onto, guarding and protecting, observing and maintaining, Papa God’s Holy Instructions, which is the permanent record of the divine will of The LORD God Almighty, written down in His Holy Scriptures. And also, most highly favored, filled with blissful joy, are those who choose to fully comply, with His purpose and will for their lives, by obeying His commands, and then, holding nothing back or in reserve, but with their whole hearts, will urgently search for Him, seeking and looking for Him in every situation, circumstance, and moment of their everyday lives. (Psalm 119:1-2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Anything that is built must begin and end with integrity and a sound plan. Whatever is built must have a strong and sure foundation. The structure that is built upon the foundation must have structural integrity. And while it is being built, in order for it to be built to withstand the challenges that may come up against it, that will surely try and test its fortitude, strength and integrity, the plan must be followed very closely, no cutting corners or codes, but a strict adherence, compliance and obedience to what is called for in the building code, which comes directly from the laws that govern the building of the structure, for the benefit, protection and enjoyment of everyone.
Our life can be characterized as a structure that we are building and erecting. Our joy, success and fulfillment in life is predicated on us having integrity; the integrity and strong foundation of The LORD operating in and flowing out of our daily existence. We too, must follow the plan and blueprints, the specific instructions that Papa God has left for us in His Holy Scriptures, in order to truly have, enjoy and experience, a flourishing success story in this life and the life to come. So, let’s have the integrity to follow, obey and seek; by building our lives with integrity and honor, the integrity of The LORD, and then honoring Him in all that we do and say, having the integrity to follow His instructions carefully, while building the structure strong and right, always maintaining a strict adherence, compliance and obedience to His Word, making it our practice and daily routine to ever search for Him, by seeking His face, not only His hand, wholeheartedly every day of our lives! His integrity and sound plan + His structural integrity + our routine of integrity = stability and our success story, in this life and the life to come! For when we do this, His complete joy is ours forevermore! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/30/15- “Papa God Gives Us The Desire And Power To Fo What Pleases Him!” (Philippians 2:12-13)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/30/15- “Papa God Gives Us The Desire And Power To Do What Pleases Him!” (Philippians 2:12-13)
Premise Question: What are each of us, as individual members of The Company of The Redeemed, directly responsible for, with regards to pleasing Papa God, and fulfilling His purpose and will for our lives, and what must we do to fulfill our own part in the process of our own personal sanctification; and then, what is Papa God’s declared and defined role of what He has promised to faithfully do and be personally responsible for, in the process of each of our own individual personal sanctification?
Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. (Philippians 2:12-13 NLT)
My beloved and most cherished close friends, I greatly appreciate that whether I’m in your presence or not, you continue to understand the importance of conducting yourselves in a manner worthy of honor and recognition. Therefore, I encourage you to carry on, in your persistent and enduring effort, to bring about, with the help of The LORD, the complete sanctification of your soul. Do this, with much reverential awe and affect, so that, a true and total transformation of your life will take effect. Remembering always, that it is Papa God who acts on your behalf, in you, through His Spirit’s enabling powerful influence, which grants and gives you the tools and desires, making it possible for you to be grounded and established in Him, in order to bring to fruition, finally, the realization of the fulfillment of His morally excellent, intended desired result, which is, His heavenly inspired, divinely designed, perfect will and purpose for your life. (Philippians 2:12-13 PDCP)
Bottom Line: What is our part and our individual responsibility? Love Papa God, love people and love mercy and compassion. Know and follow the instructions and commands we’ve been given in His Word. Understand and accept that no one can do it on their own or in their own strength. So, learn to rely upon the gracious favor of The LORD and His enabling power, presence and guiding influence of Word and His Holy Spirit. When The LORD says that He will give you the true desires of your heart, He means that He will fulfill and give you the heavenly inspired, divinely designed, true desires that He has personally placed in your heart and purposed just for you. But, this only happens when we choose to do our part, which is, doing what is just, right and honorable, in His sight, by coming into complete compliance, with regards to obeying His Word and then, by learning to utterly rely upon the leading and guiding influence of His Holy Spirit! As for Papa God’s part, His responsibility and role, in the process of sanctification; He has already done and will continue to faithfully do His part, in fulfilling and making sure He satisfies every one of the promises He’s made, with regards to helping each of us, individually, reach full and complete sanctification of our souls, by literally giving us the desires and the power to do it, thus, pleasing Him, by fulfilling His purpose and will for our lives. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/24/15- “Obey “THIS” law! Servants Of The Most High.” (Galatians 6:2)
Premise Question: What is, “THIS” law, and why is all the focus specifically on, “THIS” law?
Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.
(Galatians 6:2 NLT)
Help those who’ve been waylaid by the vicissitudes of life or even their own faults, missteps or misgivings, by offering to assist them, with a helping hand and the love, comfort and compassion of The LORD; in so doing, you will show that you are allowing The Law of Christ to control you, in the way and manner, in which, you respond to those who are experiencing difficulties, in their lives. (Galatians 6:2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: What is, “THIS” law? It is the law of love, hope and compassion, The Law of Christ; which is, to show His love, hope and compassion, with gentleness and long suffering, toward others, by expressing His love, hope and compassion, in acts of kindness, and service toward those who are experiencing difficult circumstances and times, in their lives, suffering with afflictions, being overwhelmed with anxiety, misfortune, or may have even been overcome by a moral failure, their own faults or some hardship. And, why all the focus on “THIS” specific law? Because if we are not fulfilling “THIS” law, The Law of Christ, then, nothing else matters and we end of being cursed by not fulfilling “THIS” law of love, hope and compassion, The Law of Christ! For when all is said and done, the only thing that really matters, is our faith in Christ expressing itself in love, hope and compassion, in helping and serving others! (Galatians 1:10, 5:6b, 14, 2:16c) Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/19/15- “Our Walk And Talk Should Match The Walk And Talk Of Jesus!” (1 John 2:5-6)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/19/15- “Our Walk And Talk Should Match The Walk And Talk Of Jesus!”
Premise Question: How can we know and show, with certitude, that we truly love Papa God and are truly living our lives honorably and right?
But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did. (1 John 2:5-6 NLT)
When we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, walk and talk, living our lives on display, for all to see and hear, in accordance to the way Papa God’s Holy Writ declares that we should live; then we can, with full assurance and confidence, know with certitude, that we are completely in love with Him and in fact are living our lives in Him daily. After all, shouldn’t all those who say they are members, in good standing, of The Company of The Redeemed, show that they truly are, by the conduct of their walk matching their declarative talk and that it then, can and should, be clearly matched with the example of the walk and talk of our LORD Jesus? (1 John 2:5-6 PDCP)
Bottom Line: First off, Papa God is always going to respond to obedience more favorably than just a sacrifice without obedience. (Proverbs 21:3) So, in order to know that we truly love Papa God and are living right, we should begin, by learning, knowing and understanding the life of Jesus, and exactly how He lived His life while here on the earth. Then, we need to deliberately, with diligence, choose to live our lives in the same way, manner and approach, as our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ did. Blessings…
T.O.P.-Title, Office, Position. You really don’t need them in order to minister effectively in God’s Kingdom! I think when we finally get to see who God The Father recognizes as being the top, many will be quite surprised. I could be wrong, but I feel confident it’s going to be someone we have never heard of. Anyone who chooses to Tithe, Obey, and Pray can be a TOP minister in God’s Kingdom. Give The Lord the first part. Obey His Word now. Pray continually, without ceasing. All of us have the opportunity to be in God’s Top Ten. Choose to do it with great abandon! Blessings…
T.O.P.-Title, Obey, Pray
S.O.D.A.-P.O.P.-Seek Out Divine Appointments-Pray Obey Persevere!
What can I offer the Lord for all he has done for me? I will lift up the cup of salvation and praise the Lord ’s name for saving me. I will keep my promises to the Lord in the presence of all his people. (Psalms 116:12-14 NLT)
The Lord is either Lord of all, or He’s not Lord at all! It’s one or the other, not something or anything else, nor does it fall somewhere in between…It’s All or Nothing at All!
Here is an acrostic for LORD, which illustrates whether or not He is THE LORD of our lives.
LORD-LOVE, OBEY, RELEASE, DEVOTE!
LOVE The Lord and love others, as He loves you, leaving your sinful ways and evil practices behind.
Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’
And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ (Matthew 22:37, 39 NIV) Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. (1 Peter 2:1 NIV)
OBEY The Word of The Lord, obliging to live only by it and for Him.
But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: (1 John 2:5 NIV) I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. (Psalm 119:11 NIV)
RELEASE others, as you have experienced the release of The Lord, walk in release towards others.
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. (Matthew 6:12, 14, 15 NIV) The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, (Isaiah 61:1 NIV)
DEVOTE yourself fully to becoming a disciple of The Lord.
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. (Acts 2:42 NIV) Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15 NIV) Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. (Romans 12:10 NIV)
Doing and being actively involved in Loving The Lord, Obeying His Word, Releasing others, as we have been released and Devoting ourselves completely, are all strong indicators that truly He is The LORD of every part of our entire lives…He is then, The Lord of All!
