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: He has provided a way of escape!
Bible Text: "And she caught him by his garment, saying, "Lie with me", and he left his garment in her hand and fled, and got him out"
Genesis 39 vs 12
Message: To an EVER-FAITHFUL GOD Jehovah El-Shaddai who always watch over His words to perform it be all the glory. The ONE who has not allowed us to be consumed by our enemies. May His name ever be praised in our lives in Jesus name.

His word to us this month is on "Temptation". Actually, to be tempted is not a sin but to fall into it is a sin. We have all been tempted at a particular point in time to do what we've known to be wrong or bad, some scaled through while some fell for it. Everyone is prone to temptation, nobody is exempted, take for instance if this statement is not true, then our Lord Jesus Christ shouldn't have been allowed by God to be tempted of the devil. "Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil - Matthew 4 vs 1.

When we refuse to fall for temptation, it is not a sign of being a weakling but we have made God proud of us and also developed virtues in us. The word of God made us realised that there is no temptation that comes to a man which has not been faced by someone else before and further more that God will not allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear, that He has even made a way of escape for all of us irrespective of the kind of temptation, how we are tempted and the results
we got. 1 Corinthians 10 vs 13.

Know something for sure, when we refuse to yield to any temptation, it may look as if we have missed something because we didn't grab what we want as dictated by our persistent urge to do what is wrong at that particular point in time but I tell you, you have gained more on the other hand. By refusing to yield to that temptation, you have developed two tangible and needful things as a christian who is seeking for the kingdom of God - discipline and self-control and at the end you will know that you have escaped the trap set by the enemy of your soul - devil, whose trap always and eventually lead to regrets and destruction at the end. May you not fall into his hand in Jesus name, amen.

Joseph quickly chose the way of escape even though it was presumed that he really "wanted" to do it and was punished by being thrown into the prison for well over two years but God indirectly preserved his destiny and hid him there so that his destiny would be protected from the destiny destroyers.

Daniel purposed in his heart not to defile himself with the king's delicacies in conjunction with his allies - Shadrach, Meshrach and Abednego and they obtained favour from God and were blessed with rare spiritual gifts from God that made them be found ten times better than their peers in the land of Babylon. Daniel 1 vs 8, 15-20. It is pathetic that many Brethren have fallen into temptations especially when they found themselves in a strange land where nobody knows who they were before they got there by refusing to take their stand or reveal who they really are as a child of God.

The trio of Shadrach, Mesharach and Abednego also got their own separate portion of temptation, having refused to bow for Nebucadnezer's idol and got the miraculous power of escape from God over the fiery furnace of fire. Daniel 3 vs 1 - end. Daniel also refused temptation of stopping to worship God and he was involuntarily spared by the lions in the den when they went into compulsory fasting for long hours because of Daniel, the true son of the Lion of Judah! Daniel 6 vs 1 - end.

Sometimes we might be tempted to do what others were doing wrong, to eat what others were eating
wrong or to do anything enticing but as long as it is wrong by God's standard, please don't do it, it doesn't stop it from being a SIN no matter whoever is involved. Whether your boss, G.O or your pastor, your spouse, parents or whoever, their involvement will never make it right or make it "NO MORE A SIN". May God keep supplying us the strength, grace and power to say "NO" to sin and temptation, how we are tempted and the results we may get. "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above that you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it" 1 Corinthians 10 vs 13. If it is what you must bear, then know that promotion is sure if you can make it through! Receive the grace to wait for His promises even though it tarries, you shall not be moved in Jesus name, amen.

Lastly, if you have not done this, please give your life to Jesus today and have your case of many sins settled once and for all. May you be accepted as you go to Him in obedience, submission and humility of heart according to His promise in His word that if anyone comes to Him, such he would not turn away in Jesus mighty name, amen.

Till next month if the LORD tarries,

Shalom.
