C. Can A Christian Drink Alcohol:
When a European Airline was initially launched, an educated Christian gentleman was traveling in the first class section. An Air Hostess approached him with a complimentary drink, this was an alcoholic drink, but the man politely refused.
The Air Hostess returned but this time brought the drink on a platter, designed to appeal and impress. However, the Christian man again politely refused, explaining he doesn’t drink alcohol.
The Air Hostess was concerned and informed the Manager. The Manager approached the man with another platter, now designed with flowers. He questioned, “Is there something wrong with our service? Please enjoy the drink, it is a complimentary offer.”
The man replied, “I am a Christian and I do not drink alcohol? The Manager still insisted that the man take the drink. Then, the Christian proposed that the Manager should give the drink to the Pilot first. The Manager stated, “How can the Pilot drink alcohol, he’s on duty! And if he drinks there are all chances for the Plane to crash.”
The Christian passenger with tears in his eyes, replied, “I am a Christian and I am ALWAYS on duty in order to protect my FAITH and if I Drink Alcohol I will crash my whole life here and hereafter. I AM 100% ON DUTY!”
Maybe yours might not be an alcohol, it may be tempting you for sex as it was done to Joseph, battling with how to control your anger, profane and vain babblings, your dressing , your attitude towards people and finally not sharing the Word.
Do you know that souls are dying because of those reckless behaviours of ours? BE WISE! If u must miss any place, don’t miss HEAVEN. If you  must miss any appointment, please don’t miss THE RAPTURE. If you must miss any meal, please don’t miss THE MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB. The end is no more NEAR, It’s HERE.

Prayer Point:- I refuse to go to hell because of what I drink and eat henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day! www.timogundelejesu.com

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
