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 2017
Topic: What stuff are you made of? Part 1
Bible Text: "And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess, but be filled with the Spirit" Ephesians 5 vs 18.
Message: This is another month and still counting. I hope somebody in spite whatever condition he/she may be passing through would see the goodness of God in action. He is the ONE who has kept us alive against all odds to fulfill His plans and purpose for our lives. May the name of the LORD God Jehovah El-Shaddai be praised forever in Jesus name, Amen.

The word of the LORD for you and I this month comes as a question - what stuff are you made of? If we had to start dissecting it in various forms, I will equate it to these: "Who are you?", "What kind of person are you?", "What are your aims in life?" or "What are your pursuing as your priority?". All of these questions are closely related to and really probing into our real individual personality. Our anchor Bible reference above poses 3 important factors that may be deduced in any of the above questions are:

1. Option

2. Danger

3. Definition
 

1. Option:

Our Bible reference pointed out 2 kinds of Christians you can find on earth:

a. The Spirit-filled Christians

b. The Wine-filled Christians

If you missed being one of these two, then you are the other. You may argue it out that you are a christian or even a born-again christian but you are not a drunkard because you don't take alcohol, wine, Beer or anything of such nature. Fine, you have a point there but by the time you realize the folly of living your life outside the "Life of the Spirit", you will totally agree with the word of God.

A popular man of God used to say that "A Christian can never be a sinner and a sinner can never be a Christian". This means that there is a huge gulf between being a saint and a sinner. The book of 1 John 3 vs 8 says "Whosoever commits sin is of the devil...". Even if you have been living on the Altar of God for decades but iniquity can still be found in you, then you are devil's property! It is just that the devil has no right to claim you now until you refused to repent and eventually die in your sins; then he will drag you to his eternal abode - hell.

It doesn't matter your position or personality in your religion or the exploits you have made in the name of God, if you die in your sin, the devil holds absolute right to claim you. This is the more reason the devil will not trouble you. As long as you are courting sin (fire) in your bosom, he's waiting form you to die in that condition so that he can lay claim on you. It is much more better to retrospect and search your life "If there be iniquity in you!"; repent NOW before you have your last breath cross over to the eternity.

A Spirit-filled person always find his/her way back to God whenever he derails. Spirit-filled people always retrospect on their past, link it to the present and reason that if death should come calling, where will they spend their eternity. Wine-filled people would never accept being wrong in their attitudes or characters talk less of being remorseful over it and repent until they are caught and cut down in the web of their sins or atrocities by death. Wine-filled people will not see themselves as human who can sin or make mistakes but that they are super-human with pride. They never submit nor swallow their pride in repenting and going to God for forgiveness.

Wine-filled people are plenty in the church, read Bible but never follow what they read, pretend to be holy and still will never change until their end comes unexpectedly. Yes, they seem perfect until their can of worms are opened in eternity where it would be too late to repent. Wine-filled people always suspect themselves because of their ways of life, suspecting others too and accusing others of judging them, yet their lives are stinking before God.

Wine-filled people are selfish, devoid of feelings for others, always minding that everything must go their ways alone but yet see people as cheating them when corrected from their ways of errors and path of destruction.

Spirit-filled people do not pride themselves no matter who they are or what they can do. Spirit-filled people never operate under pressure to fast-track or help God fulfill His will for their

lives but wait patiently knowing fully well that God who planned their lives has more than enough resources, control order systems and has set appointed time for every purpose in their lives no
matter the pressure from the worldly people around them. They never get tired easily or lose focus of what God is doing in their lives and how he's been leading them individually not giving
attention to any side-comments to distract and derail them from continuing.

Spirit-filled people don't get stranded in life because they know where they are going and who
alone (God) can get them there, not by power, struggles or disobedience by feeling it is their lives, no!

How are you operating your life today? Is it like a Spirit-filled or a Wine-filled fellow? If the LORD would not build the house, the builders labor in vain but if God is there, little will be much and enough to bail out of shame and disgrace - that is what the Lord promised to those who
would continuing following, trusting Him and pursuing His will for their lives without being under pressure to please men therefore become derailed and distracted.

We will continue next month if the LORD tarries but if you haven't become genuinely born-again (John 3 vs 3-5), do it now. You are blessed in Jesus name, Amen.

Shalom
