God is our Father, Jesus is our Lord and Savior, Holy Spirit our Guidance, Counsellor and everlasting Companion!  The WORD of God is the best shortcut for your life, love to learn it and learn to love it - Hebrews 4:12. Your life is not an accident but a project of grace, get it right on time because failure is a disaster to your destiny.  To be awake or asleep has a way of blessing people or impoverishing them; discerning the time to be awake or asleep is a mystery you have to unravel before you can succeed in life - Proverbs 19:15; 24:30-34. WORRY-if not well handled, is an assassing of tomorrow and a destroyer of today - Matthew 6:25-34.
Count Down To Eternity:

EXTRA TIME OF ETERNITY?!

* Are you saved? * Are you preparing for that GREAT day? * Where currently are you located in HIS plan for the World? * What are you doing with your life?
* How far have you gone? * How well have you done? Consider these seriously, the time of grace is tickling away by second!

Topic: Who gets there first? Part 1
Bible Text: "Therefore we also, since we surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight nd the sin which easily ensnare us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us" Hebrews 12:1
Message: There is one important secret that sets the races in the world and the race to heaven (that is set before us)apart, once a child of God realises this, the race to heaven becomes easier and stressless. The secret is that there is no competition in the race to heaven. Therefore, it is not a matter of who gets there first but who crosses the finishing line? Who gets there first was borne out of competitions, which means the first to get there takes the only prize that is being competed for, by all that took part in the race but the race to heaven is not like that. What is written about the race is that "...in my Fathers' house there are many mansions..." If it is all about who gets there first or by competition, in fact we that are here by divine placement at the latter end of the time have no hope at all but the SOn of God is still busy preparing mansions uncountable for those who would eventually cross the finishing line. In competitions, the first to get there takes all while the two runner-ups shall receive consolation prizes and the rest of the participants lose out. Further more, the race to heaven, since it is not by competition must not be handled as such. It is not an hundred meter race dash but a marathon. What does this means? It means you should not be in haste to get there thereby colapse on the way. It is a race that is better run with patience, dilligence, determinations, persistence and endurance because it is not a matter of who gets there first but who crosses the finishing line. One will always gets there first but uncountable can cross the finishing line and that is the only criterial needed to make it through. In summary, the secrets as solutions to our challenges are clearly enumerated in our anchor text "Therefore we also, since we surrounded by so great a cloud of witnersses, let us lay aside every weight nd the sin which easily ensnare us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us" Hebrews 12:1 They are what we need to apply before we can make it through in the race to heaven: 1. SELF-AWARENESS: Do you really know who you are? Well, I know who I am, I am a born-again child of God, who must not compare himself with anyone who does not maintain the same status as I have, even with other born-again children of God because I am unique and I have a unique race set before me. I must live in consciousness that both witnesses in heaven and on earth, all surrounded me and are on the watch of how I run my race to heaven. Everything about me is being documented. I have a separate record book where everything I do or don't do is being recorded by the witnesses around me 247, 365 days and up till I breath my last breadth of life on this earth. "...we are surrounded by so great cloud of witnesses..." What about you? Are you also living with this consciousness? Do you know that as a born-again child of God, there are some places where we find people in their thousands but you are not permitted to be there? There are some things widely accepted as norms by the corrupt system of this world yet you are not permitted to do them. There are some clothes or dresses prominently worn by the people around us because they are trendy and envogue but we are not permitted to wear them , even though some do wear them to the church on Sundays or any other day. There are some shady activities going on in your office or department by the express permission of your boss or HOD because of what "you all" stand to gain at the end of these deals yet, it doesn't matter who endorses it, you are not permitted to be part of this evil show? Do you know that no matter what happens, as a bonafide child of God, you must always trust God for your needs up to the pressing ones? Your live's record must not be stained by manipulations of different kinds, just to get what you want with what you have. Well, the list is endless but the main factor here is that you are being watched and have all your activities documented by the heavenly recorders. All of these shall stand against you as witnesses on the day of judgement. But the good news is that you can repent of these sins, forsake them and go to Master Saviour who specializes in wiping off bad records with His blood-detergent and gives you a clean record with nothing contrary written on it? And further more cleanses you with this same blood-detergent and you will become guiltless, clean and make you stand stainless before our Father in heaven? He had already paid the ultimate price on the cross for you and I. He is JESUS, accept Him as your personal LORD and Saviour now and all of the above benefits shall be your and ...the ultimate of it all is that He will write your name in the book of life and keep it there for as long as you remain faithful to Him. "Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven" Luke 10:20. Is your name written in heaven? If it was written, is it still there? "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire" Revelation 20:15 This message continues next month if the LORD tarries. Shalom
