SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/20/15- “Don’t Allow Pride To Ride And Rule!”
(Proverbs 11:2)

Premise Question: Why do some people choose the way of pride, which leads to devastating disgrace and destructive demise, when everyone is given the wonderfully blest opportunity to choose the way of humility, which leads to wisdom, peace and joy?

“Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”
(‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭11:2‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

When adulation, adoration and applause,
is heaped upon people’s lives,
then arrogance, hubris, insolence,
a full blown pride may arise,
swelled up in all of its pretense,
devastating disgrace and destructive demise,
but a meek, lowly and contrite heart of civility,
filled with modesty, courtesy and polite respect,
overcomes all arrogant insolent hubris, with humility,
which then brings wisdom from above,
in all of its truth, honor, good judgement and insight,
teaching and nurturing us with His unfailing love. (Proverbs 11:2 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Don’t allow pride, along for the ride, in your life! For its resulting consequences, when allowed to ride and rule in your life, are a loss of respect, honor and esteem, accompanied by, devastating disgrace, abject humiliation, total annihilation and utter destruction! So, why anyone would ever choose to allow pride to ride along, to be the ruling influence in their life, lacks good sense, understanding or the ability to accept and comprehend the eventuality of the guaranteed outcome! There is, though, an actual cause and reason we can point to, that has a huge bearing on why one may succumb to being strongly influenced, carried away and overwhelmed in choosing to be led and directed by pride over humility. Pride can be extremely intoxicating, as one can become completely inebriated and drunk on the praise, recognition and accolades being heaped upon them by others. It can cause a person to become confused, befuddled, delirious, vision impaired, unable to see themselves and things in their life for what they really are. We are all subject to becoming captivated by our pride and the praise of others. It can have the debilitating affect on us of becoming imbalanced, beside ourselves, resulting in emotional and mental stupidity. When this occurs, we lose our ability to appropriately discern or make good judgements, and as a direct result, wise decisions are rarely, if ever, made! So, don’t allow pride to ride and rule and reign in your life, where ignominy and shame prevails, but choose the way of humility and meekness, which leads to wisdom, peace and joy. Remember, when we lose our balance, we are subject to falling! “Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.” (‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬) Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/05/15- “Building A House Of Wisdom For Life!” (Proverbs 9:10)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/05/15- “Building A House Of Wisdom For Life!” (Proverbs 9:10)

Premise Question: Where do we begin, what do we do first and then, after we’ve started, how do we proceed in building the structure of the house of wisdom for our life?

Fear of the LORD is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭9‬:‭10‬ NLT)

It is extremely wise and prudent, on your part, to honor, with a reverential awe and respect, The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, as it will be the most important and bedrock decision, that you’ll ever need to make in life. And then, when you deliberately pursue and increase your knowledge of The Most High, it will give you strong support, great insight and understanding, as well as, a more excellent and preferred outcome in your life. (Pro. 9:10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The beginning of being really smart, if you’re going to be a successful, wise and prudent builder; is to have a huge and healthy dose of holy reverential awe and honorable respect for The LORD Most High, who is The Sovereign Papa God Almighty! There is not a better way or place to start, in building your life house right. For it is the very foundation building blocks of all that is virtuous, good, right and holy and is the firm and sure bedrock of a strong and overcoming faith, that’s built into the very structure of the house of wisdom for your life. Papa God’s Word declares that a house that’s built by wisdom, will become strong and stable, with great insight and understanding and will make good sense. And when knowledge of The Most High is diligently pursued and added, it will have a wonderful abounding effect, with desirable results and blessings of a life that’s on the bedrock of wisdom, rather than the disastrous results of building your life on any other foundation, which ultimately becomes nothing, as it is built on sifting sand. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/24/15- “Papa God’s Divinely Inspired, Purpose Driven And Strategically Carried Out, Eternal Plan Of Redemption!” (Ephesians 2:10-11)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: “Papa God’s Divinely Inspired, Purpose Driven And Strategically Carried Out, Eternal Plan Of Redemption!” (Ephesians 2:10-11)

Premise Question: What are we, The Company of The Redeemed, The CHURCH, to do with Papa God’s divinely inspired, purpose driven, with a perfect strategy of carrying it out to completion, eternal plan of redemption for all of humankind?

God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭3‬:‭10-11‬ NLT)

From the very beginning, it has always been in Papa God’s loving, full of grace and merciful heart, as His pure and true intention, to utilize the Church, every member of The Company of The Redeemed, in the implementation of His divinely inspired, purpose driven and strategically carried out, eternal perfect plan of redemption for all of humankind; by putting on display, for everyone to see, including even those who are ruling and reigning in power and authority in the invisible spiritual realm, the boundless wealth of true divine wisdom, in all of its glorious array of various and diversified types. This is not something new, but has always been established, from the very beginning, as His perfectly divine, eternal plan of redemption, for all of humankind, which He ultimately and literally accomplished fully, through His Son, our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:10-11 PDCP)

Bottom Line: An acrostic The LORD gave to me many years ago, for His CHURCH is: Christ Helping Us Reach Complete Healing! I believe Papa God’s plan of spreading His ultimate cure for the pandemic of sin, in the world is: for His CHURCH to share with everyone everywhere, the good news of what Jesus Christ accomplished, when He surrendered His life to die upon the cross and then, His ensuing resurrection and victory over death, hell and the grave, and the promised gift of His Holy Spirit, which comforts, empowers and seals us unto the day of redemption for all of eternity; and also results in providing deliverance, healing and an escape from death, to all those who believe in Him. This is His perfect strategy and divine plan, that is to be activated and then, completely implemented, through His CHURCH, which is every member of The Company of The Redeemed. We all should, in a sense, become agents of reconciliation, doctors without borders, carriers of the antidote for the cure of the infectious pandemic disease of sin, by being full of His GRACE: God’s Redeeming Atonement Covers Everyone! And His MERCY: My Everlasting Redemption Covers You! As well as, His unfailing love, His perfect peace and unspeakable joy. We are called to bring His healing and cure to everyone in the world, in order to counteract the pandemic of sin, which leads to ultimate death and eternal separation from Papa God’s presence. We are on a mission from Papa God! We are called to take the antidote, Jesus Christ, for the pandemic of sin to everyone everywhere, injecting them with the one and only cure for their desperate and impossible to recover from condition! Let’s continue to do this now! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 04/16/15- “The Smartest Thing!” (Proverbs 4:7)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/16/15- “The Smartest Thing!” (Proverbs 4:7)

Premise Question: Can we, or should we even attempt to, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, successfully navigate the seas of life, and ultimately make good, right, just and wise decisions, that will have the desired and most preferable result, of us being able to thrive, flourish and survive in this life; without ever seeking after and actually be in possession of, in order to be led, guided, influenced and directed by, Papa God’s divine wisdom?

Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do! And whatever else you do, develop good judgment. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭4‬:‭7‬ NLT)

Diligently pursuing and chasing after wisdom, with everything you’ve got, and with all your might, for the ultimate ideal purpose of being in full possession of it; in order to be led, guided, protected and directed by it in this life, should be your greatest ambition, and will prove to be the most important focus and the smartest decision that you’ll ever make in this life! And then, the desired result will be; that no matter whatever else you do in this life, you’ll always have the necessary acumen and wherewithal to grow and mature in ethical integrity, and also have the ability to see and judge things in a most excellent, honorable and praiseworthy way. (Proverbs 4:7 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The “Captain Obvious” answer to the Premise Question is: an absolute, NOPE! WISDOM-Seek it, ask for it, apply it, be taught and trained by it and don’t settle for anything less than God’s divine WISDOM! For if you choose to do this, it will be the smartest, being the most brilliant, thing you ever do in this life and it will be a decision that will reward you with great benefits and one that you’ll never regret or have any residue of remorse! There isn’t anything, in his life, more precious or that holds more value, or that will be more helpful and beneficial to you, than having Papa God’s divine wisdom leading, influencing, guiding, protecting and directing you in this life! For without it, you won’t be making very good choices and decisions! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 03/18/15- “Who We Tell, How We Warn, What We Teach And Why!” (Colossians 1:28)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 03/18/15- “Who We Tell, How We Warn, What We Teach And Why!” (Colossians 1:28)

Premise Question: Who do we, The Company of The Redeemed, tell about Jesus Christ, how do we warn them, what do we teach them and why?

So we tell others about Christ, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all the wisdom God has given us. We want to present them to God, perfect in their relationship to Christ. (‭Colossians‬ ‭1‬:‭28‬ NLT)

So, because the message, of Christ living in us, is no longer a long kept secret, we, The Company of The Redeemed, are now compelled to announce and make known, to everyone everywhere, The Good News about the truth of who Jesus Christ really is. We do this, with the divine wisdom Papa God has imparted to us and with a sense of great urgency, by admonishing and instructing everyone, giving them clear notice to be on alert and to become keenly aware, by personally acquainting themselves with Jesus Christ. All of which is done, in order to affect their personal involvement and connection to The LORD Jesus Christ, so that, when they are personally introduced to Papa God, they will be without flaw, defect or fault, being in an absolutely perfect relationship with Jesus Christ. (Colossians 1:28 PDCP)

Bottom Line: WHO, do we tell about Jesus Christ, by making Him known, through our own personal testimonies, declaration of His Word and proclamations of His greatness? Everyone everywhere: Including, but not limited too, immediate family, extended family, friends and associates, our neighbors and co-workers, fellow citizens and non-citizens alike, even, if possible, and the doors open for you to go, which would allow it to happen, to every nation and people group, no matter where they may be, in the whole earth. HOW, do we warn those we tell about Jesus Christ? With the divine wisdom that Papa God has given us, and by becoming authentic living examples of Papa God’s love, grace, mercy, truth and compassion, through our sacrificial service, of ministering to the needs of others, not just with words, but with our actions and good deeds, as well, and that, with great joy, thanksgiving and a grateful heart. WHAT, do we teach those we’ve told about Jesus Christ? To love Papa God and love people, to share the Good News with others, to know and comprehend the truth about grace, to seek and have a clear knowledge and full understanding of Papa God’s will and purpose for their lives, to accept that their faith in Jesus Christ has set them free from the restraints and results of sin, allowing them to walk in and experience all the benefits of freedom, and finally, to live a life that will always bring honor and glory, as well as, be pleasing to Papa God. WHY, do we do all this? In order to be able to introduce them to Papa God, as individuals who have grown and fully matured into a flourishing and satisfying relationship with Jesus Christ, their LORD and Savior. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/26/15- “Wisdom That Makes Us Sure!” (James 1:5-6)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/26/15- “Wisdom That Makes Us Sure!” (James 1:5-6)

Premise Question: “What can bring us complete assurance, whereby, we are able to absolutely depend, with utter reliance upon, and that will work every time, for everything we encounter, in this life, and will also enable us to experience successful living, other than, the supreme wisdom of Almighty Papa God?

If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. (‭James‬ ‭1‬:‭5-6‬ NLT)

When wisdom is required, for anything pertaining to this life, choose to always inquire of Papa God first, for looking to someone or something else is quite deficient and not at all prudent. Do this, by petitioning, through prayer, our beneficently gracious Papa God, for He is ever ready to lavish upon you His bountiful benevolence. When you approach Papa God though, with your request, do not be fearful of a reprimand or His disapproval, for He will not rebuff you, because of your inquiry. But do understand this, that when you do ask Him for anything, it is of the greatest importance and absolutely imperative, that you are relying only upon your faith in Him, to the exclusion of all others and everything else. One more thing, don’t waffle with indecision, swaying back and forth between a juxtaposition, because an individual who tries to straddle the fence, will always be trying to balance and manage the situation, rather than being on one side or the other, with trueheartedness, and thus will always be subject to being weakened, anxious and rattled, thrown and hurled about, by the forces and influences of this life, without ever having any peace or rest. (James 1:5-6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Answer…it is only Papa God’s Supreme Wisdom alone, that we can absolutely depend and rely upon, with complete assurance, for living a successful life, for there is no one or nothing else, in this life, that will suffice. Ask Papa God today for His Supreme Wisdom and believe, with your whole heart that He will grant your request, and you’ll have it! Blessings…
