Welcome to this Christian Website which has now been going for a number of years. Over 128,000 people have visited it since 2006. On the left hand side of the introductory page is a host of subjects and material that have been placed during this time and is there for your interest, study and perusal.
I feel it is time and right to change the format and to present day by day something a little simpler and trust will benefit and bless those who visit it. It will consist of a Prophetic Word for Today, A Golden Promise from the Scriptures, Just a Thought by Aaron Linford. Choice Quotationsand a miniature message from the Psalms that can be developed more fully by you. I trust you will find such refreshing and helpful
A PROPHETIC WORD FOR YOU
Ever remember that the LORD has called you into the Highlands to be with Himself so that He might make Himself known to you in a greater way: as Christ led Peter, James and John up the mount for a special disclosure of Himself, so with you, too. There is a need to hear His voice and summons and respond positively, for this will make a dynamic impact on your understanding and relationship with Him that will become more sure and fruitful. The lesser Hwill honour your faith and action. You will become listed with those who pressed through to know Him on a greater level and contribute enormously for Him in the generation you serve.
A GOLDEN PROMISE
Matthew 6:8 (WEB)
”Therefore don’t be like them,
for your Father knows what things you need,
before you ask him.
In Matthew 6, Jesus is instructing the listeners on how to pray to their heavenly Father. We don’t have to stand on street corners shouting prayers out loud so everyone can hear us and we don’t have to spend endless hours in repetitive babble thinking that somehow that will influence God. God is a good Father and He is simply looking for His kids to talk to Him.
Jesus tells us in this passage of Scripture that our God and Father is so attentive to our needs that He actually knows what we need before we even ask Him for it! We don’t have to shout to get His attention! We don’t have to spend hours in vain repetition to convince Him to listen! He is already listening… even before we pray a single word!
What an awesome Father we have! He is loving, He is good and He is kind. He knows what you need before you even ask! That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t ask though. He loves when we take time in our own prayer closet just to talk to Him. Anytime… night or day!
JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
“I DIE DAILY” – I Cor 15: 31
There are more deaths than one. There is physical death, the separation of the soul from the body; spiritual death, separation of the soul from God; worst of all, “the second death”, separation of the whole personality from the presence of the Almighty (see Revelation 20:14).
But there are minor deaths, indifference or ignorance to the worlds around us. A tone-deaf person is dead to the world of music; a bigoted sot to the world of decency; an ignoramus to the world of fame; an illiterate to the world of literature; a stick-in-the-mud to the world of adventure.
A consecrated Christian is “dead to the world and all its toys”; a sanctified believer is dead to the old life; a fervent servant of Christ is dead to self.
With Paul, to ‘die daily” meant three things. First the constant danger of opposition; secondly, his consecration to the point of complete surrender to God, ‘taking up his cross daily‘, (Luke 9:23), thirdly, his ever-readiness to give all to the service of Christ.
So may we learn to daily give ourselves to Christ that we may daily live to Him.
“Our character is but the stamp on our souls of the free choices of good and evil we have made through life” – Geikie
“Every man has three characters -that which he exhibits, that which he has, and that which he thinks he has.” – Karr
FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
THE REALITY OF MORTALITY
“Man’s fate is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both” – Ecclesiastes 3:19
When God created the world, He left behind clues everywhere about His identity as the Creator and our identity as the creation. Since time began, God has been concerned that we not get those identities confused. The Creator sets the agenda. The creation follows the agenda.
Man’s mortality is one of the most obvious signs he is creation rather than Creator. “As for men, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals. . . . As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath” (Ecclesiastes 3:18-19). We breathe, we die, and we go to dust—just like our pet dogs.
Why do we need to understand that? Because a life of fullness and joy is inextricably connected to an understanding that we come under God’s authority, agenda, and timing. It also matters because we ought to live in such a way that we, created beings, properly acknowledge our Creator. Our thinking, actions, and priorities should make it clear to anyone who observes that we are individuals under authority and that the large and small decisions of our lives are not for us to make on our own.
We might be confused about many things, but we should never be confused about the fact that we are not the Creator. Nor should we be confused about the fact that the Creator is an intelligent Being Who prefers an ordered existence. Even if we don’t know Scripture, what may be known about God ought to be plain to us. Why? Because God has made it plain: “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities——his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse” (Romans 1:20).
As His creation, we obey God, we love God, and we worship God, our Creator.
