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!

Month: August 2014
Topic: The Word
Bible Text: The word that I speak to you, they are spirit, and they are life.' John 6:63
Message: Did you know that the longest telegraph ever dispatched was in May, 1881? It carried 188,000 words. It was printed in full that day in the chicago Times. One of the nation's leading newspapers gave space for four Gospels, the Act of Apostles and the Epistles to the Romans. "A triumph of publicity" was the verdict of the nation's press. All this was done because the Revised Version of the New Testament in English was on sale that day. In New York City, 33,000 copies were sold within 24 hours, setting a new sale record for any book. Why does the Bible remain the world's most widely read book? For one simple reason: you read every other book - the reads you! You say but I don't get a lot out of the Bible when I read it.'You are not alone, many people say the same thing. But it doesn't have to be that way.F. B. Meyer, one of history's great Bible teachers, writes,'Read the Bible not as a newpaper, but as a love letter. If a cluster of heavenly fruit hangs within your reach, gather it. If a promise lies upon the page as a blank cheque, cash it. If a prayer is recorded, launch it as a feathered arrow from the bow of your desire.'Why do we keep going back to the Bible? Because in a world where trust is in short supply, '...Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave...'(1 Kings 8:56 NIV).

'...I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread' Job 23:12 NIV
Psychologist are agreed on this point, people only keep doing what rewards them! So when Bible reading  becomes unrewarding we quit. As a result we feel guilty, and become spiritually weak and discouraged. Your soul    can no more thrive without God's Word than your body can thrive without daily intake of food. The Bible says, He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord' (Deuteronomy 8:3 NIV). One of the dangers of the iPhone is that you begin to live on 'hits' of information and short messages limited up to 140 characters or less. This creates spiritual ADD (attention deficit disorder). God cannot be reduced to a limited word count or a few hurried moments in your day. To prosper, you must meditate day and night on the scripture (Psalm 1:1-3) You say, 'But I don't have time to read the Bible. 'How much time do you spend each day watching television? Hours? If you find television to be rewarding, but not God's word, your soul is in need of intensive care! If you want to change your life, change your habits and start reading the Bible. Job who had more troubles than any of us will ever see, said, 'I have not departed from the commands of his lips; I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread.'

'Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that...you may grow...' 1 Peter 2:2 NIV
We all know the famous Heinz food products slogan, 57 Varieties. Well, most of us have at least that many excuses for not reading our Bible every day. You say, 'But I have a very busy day.' Edgar G. Watts of North Hollywood, California, aged 84, read the Bible from cover to cover 161 times. And here's something you probably don't know; he had the use of only one eye for 55 years. Can you imagine telling a physical trainer you'd really like to be fit, but you don't have time to come to the gym? He'd say that you are not serious! Jeremiah said, 'When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart's delight...' (Jeremiah 15:16 NIV). Developing a love for the scripture requires three things:

1) Decision. You must establish Bible reading as one of your daily priorities or it will never happen.

2) Duty. You  may not feel like going to work  each day, or caring for your family, but you know it's your duty so you do it. What about your soul? Don't you have a duty to feed yourself spiritually and stay strong?

3) Delight. When you reach this phase, the battle over Bible is won.

When business leaders are about to make an important decision, they say,'It's time to pull the trigger'. Stop 'dabbling!' It's time to pull the trigger and give God's word its rightful place in your life. 'Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up.'

To be continued next month if the Lord tarries.
