WELCOME TO THIS CHRISTIAN WEBSITE

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

Two key facts must possess and govern you at all times and all will be well with regard to both your life and work for Him. You need to be conscious of your own total inadequacy to cope and deal with life in a successful manner and be attuned to the knowledge of His infinite adequacy to meet this evident negative state. The call from on High is that you learn to be continuously resourced by Him, from His immense and eternal fullness and so have more than you require to minister and meet each situation and others in confidence and fulfilment. As you fix your gaze and faith on and in Him so you will receive all that is required not only to meet you but to meet others all around with what is bestowed. His storehouse remains forever full to meet your barrenness and create a wealth of fullness. Because of this blessing on you, it places you in a wholesome state whereby you can enrich all around. Learn to live in and off Him today!

A GOLDEN PROMISE

Hebrews 6:10 (WEB)
For God is not unrighteous, so as to forget your work and the labor of love
which you showed toward his name, in that you served the saints, and still do serve them.
Today’s promise simply says that God will not forget all the love you have shown to Him by serving others. The New International Version Bible translation of Hebrews 6:10 says… God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. (NIV)

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
A HOLE IN MY POCKET

There is a spiritual side to money. Used well – it multiplies. So said Jesus (Luke 6:38): not used well – it mysteriously disappears through a hole in the pocket (Hag 1:6 – ‘a bag with holes”).

While it is true that “a good man…will guide his affairs with discretion” (Ps 112:5), yet it is also true that plenitude or poverty may issue from our bounty or our stinginess.

But there is more than one kind of riches. Money cannot buy happiness for oneself, but use it to relieve those in need, and O, the joy it can bring! “The liberal soul shall be made fat” (Prov 11 :25). Money is like com-seeds, scatter it, and it will multiply, keep it in the bam and it will be destroyed by mildew or eaten by rats.
Poverty comes to him “that withholdeth more than is meet’ (Prov 11:27). The hole in your pocket will grow bigger if you fail to give to God’s cause and to men’s needs. But it will be sewn up if from your pocket it goes to there’s. The essence of a good life is giving and receiving, and of these two the former finds most blessing (Acts 20:35).

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; When health is lost, something is lost; When character is lost, all is lost!” – Anonymous

“Characters are achieved-not received. They grow out of the substance of a man’s soul” – Anonymous

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
T.Addington
HEAVEN IN THE REAL WORLD

“I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live” – Ecclesiastes 3:12

Solomon could be considered the ultimate realist. The “tell-it-like-it-is” guy. He paints the world like it really is, not like an impressionist artist who uses only pastels and paints only pastoral scenes. If Solomon had been a photographer, his work would have been in stark black and white. He certainly would not have been a wedding photographer who produced soft, fuzzy shots in artificial light.

But even Solomon’s stark realism couldn’t keep him from an unquenchable optimism grounded in a relationship with God that permeated every corner of his life. As he points out in Ecclesiastes, this relationship with God has an especially profound impact on our work lives: “That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil—this is the gift of God.” (3:13) Even amid a vivid description of the realities of life—including unfairness, corruption, and bosses who don’t listen—Solomon shows that God Wants us to genuinely enjoy our lives and work with enthusiasm.

And the enjoyment that he refers to is always present-tense enjoyment. Solomon is not one to put off enjoying life for some future time. In the entire Book of Ecclesiastes, he lives with one foot solidly planted in the present and one foot solidly planted in eternity. He spends very little time writing about the time period between the present and eternity. He is not one who recommends that we put off joy and satisfaction in life. Those are to be experienced today. Immediately. i
To the natural optimist, he says, “Get real about life, but enjoy it.” To the pessimist, he says, “I confirm the realities of life, but enjoy it anyway.” To both, he says, “Enjoyment comes only from God.”

Where do you rate on the “pursue—the-God-life” scale? Are you putting oh‘ enjoyment now so you can experience it later? Solomon advises you to revise that game plan. Are you attempting to enjoy life now without a vital relationship with the living God that permeates every single aspect of life? Solomon recommends that you adjust that game plan, too. Our goal should be to rank high on the “pursue-the-God-life” scale today. Can you say that today is a day permeated with the joy o life?
