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: June 2016
Topic: Be strong in the grace...
Bible Text: "No man that wars entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him that chose him to be a soldier. And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned except he strive lawfully. The husbandman that labours must be first partaker of the fruits"  II Timothy 2 vs 4-6
Message: All glory be to God in heaven, for His mercy endures forever. We thank God for yet another month, His protection over us, His provision for us and His guidance. He is the one who has not allowed the enemies to prevail over us, may His name be glorified for ever in Jesus name, Amen.

His word for us this month admonishes us to be strong in the grace that is in our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ - II Timothy 2 vs 1. Of course, the picture painted for us in our anchor reference - II Timothy 2 vs 4-6 gave us two illustrations of a soldier and an athlete from which we can draw
important lessons to learn in order for us to prosper in our heavenly journey and our brief sojourn here on earth. This actually shows that whatever we do here during our sojourn on earth determines our placement in heaven whether in paradise or hell as our eternal abode. Before we go further to exude lessons we need from this anchor reference. One thing that must constantly be our guide is - "For what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?" Mark 8 vs 36.

If our souls are more important and precious to God, then it should be of our paramount valuable too. When we realize this, we will follow the admonishments of the Lord in our anchor reference.
A soldier who doesn't want to be defeated in the battle constantly reminds himself of the real reason why he is there on the battle field. Giving attentions to something else during the battle will to a large extent jeopardize his getting back home victoriously without being maimed or killed. No one likes to lose but losing is inevitable for those who failed to acknowledge the above truths of the kingdom, those who are easily distracted by worldly materials and pleasures, those are easily provoked by naughty situations and those who are fretful by seemingly insignificant challenges and issues. Every problem has its own expiry period if you don't expire yourself before then.
Likewise, an athlete who has learned all the rudiments of running a race successfully without breaking a rule, if distracted while running whether by the cheering of his beloved fans, jeering of his opponents' fans or even looking back to see the positions of his fellow athletes behind him will definitely lose out or be disqualified.

UNDILUTED CONCENTRATION
This invariably means that concentration is the first key to a successful completion. Power of concentration can not be under estimated if one would succeed both on earth and to make heaven. There are more than enough distractions all around us but when we fix our gaze on the Lord as our ultimate goal and prize, nothing shall be strong enough to stop, pull us down or cause us to lose out - "Wherefore seeing that we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which do easily besets us, and let us run with patience, the race that is set before us" Hebrews 12 vs 1

DISCIPLINE
Our focus must be set and concentrated upon, which actually leads us to the issue of being disciplined. If a child of God is not disciplined, he will be living his life excusing himself of all sorts of indulgences. The ultimate goal of the devil sometimes is not to kill or destroy out-rightly but to give enough distractions that will make one miss it AND I pray that he
shall not succeed in our lives in Jesus mighty name, Amen.

Remember when Jesus was being led into the wilderness in preparation for His earthly ministry, after the forty days fasting and prayers, the devil came to Him, tempting Him with all sorts of
earthly pleasures and glories but Jesus refused to be distracted, this helped Him not to yield to the adversary's proposals and offers of destruction. Discipline means the same as having self-control which is part of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. if you lack this, (thank God) it is what you can pray and ask God for and it shall be given to you abundantly without measure.

Temptation means distraction - the attraction or drawing of your attention away from the direction of your initial journey. It also means diversion but in whatever version the devil may presents it, you and I shall not yield in Jesus name, Amen. Note that the devil always present temptation in form of our pressing needs, take for instance, after such a long period of fasting and prayer, Jesus
needs refreshments and the devil quickly took the advantage by presenting the odd of it but Jesus was wiser and smarter enough to decline his offer, how many time have you accepted this kind of offer and this seemingly "being your timely needs fulfilled" is your smart excuse? Be wise, you cannot always have a grace-time to repent!

IGNORE THREATENING SIDE-ATTRACTIONS
Keep on moving, be strong in His grace - it is an empowerment to keep on being in progressive motion in your journey both spiritually and physically in spite of impediments. Grace is not a license to sin as some have wrongly purported. Are you still struggling? Keep struggling and enduring - it is a sign that you have not yet been defeated!

Brethren, be strong in the face of fierce and hot persecutions, lack, discrimination and evil conspiracy. The Lord told Joshua to be strong and no man shall be able to stand before him and it was so. "Be strong therefore and let not your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded" II Chronicles 15 vs 7. Let courage be in your heart, know that our time of redemption is very near than when we first know. His grace is sufficient for you. To conquer you need to be strong in that grace - the grace of our Lord Jesus and as you continue to do so, I pray that you and I will make it here on earth and also make it home (heaven) in Jesus name

If you are yet to give your life to Jesus, please do so because you
