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

Live in and with the spirit of grace and forgiveness in your heart and expression of faith. There are many people and things that occur to disturb your spirit and would make you resentful and reproachful. Avoid falling foul of an unforgiving attitude because it sows the seeds of personal destruction. As you have been freely forgiven of God, imbibe His nature and action and so safeguard your being from this menace. Count it pleasure and not a pain to cancel out all those negative and destructive feelings whatever the cause for them done by others. Keep your mind and heart clean. In so doing, you will be free before your heavenly Father and in a place where He can bestow His matchless favour continually on you.

A GOLDEN PROMISE
Proverbs 19:17 (WEB)
”He who has pity on the poor lends to Yahweh;
He will reward hi”.

In yesterday’s promise, we talked about how God says He won’t forget all the love you have shown Him by loving others. In today’s promise, King Solomon writes in Proverbs 19:17 that God promises to repay us when we give to the poor. This Scripture actually says that when we give to those who are needy we are actually lending to the Lord. I can’t think of a better person to have a business transaction with than our God and Father!

There is an old saying that says “We can never outgive God”. My prayer today is that each and every one of us would see the incredible blessing there is for us when we are merciful to others just like our heavenly Father is merciful to us. The whole point is not to give to others to get from the Lord, but it is such a wonderful thought that God sees our gifts to the poor as investments in Him and He promises to repay all that we sow in this life.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
DIVINE ALCHEMY

The alchemists of the Middle Ages sought “the philosophers stone” that would turn base metal into gold. was a fatuous quest, for if gold became so common would lose its value. But what these ancient philosophers failed to do, God has done and will do. He can trn base evil into blessed good. So Joseph said “Ye thought evil against me”, he reminded his brothers, “but God meant it unto good”, he triumphantly added (Gen 50:20).

There are things that seem to harm us which, by divine providence turn into everlasting joy. In fact, “All things work together for good to them that love God” (Rom 8:28) in whose lives a holy purpose discloses itself.

Look at Paul’s imprisonment at the end of his days. Is this the reward for a life of obedient and sacrificial service! It seemed hard. But Paul in prison led many to Christ, wrote letters that have blessed and edified the church for centuries and left an example of enduring faith. Your life seems but “lead” – heavy and base? The Lord can transmute it to gold. Trust Him.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“Character is like bells, which ring out sweet notes, and which, when touched-accidentally even-resound with sweet music” – Brooks

“Grandeur of character lies in force of soul-that is, in the force of thought, moral principles, and love; and this may be found in the humblest conditions of life” – Channing

“You must look into people as well as at them” – Chesterfield

“Strength of character may be acquired at work, but beauty of character is learned at home” — Henry Drummond

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
T.Addington
MAKING AN ETERNAL IMPACT

“I know that everything God does will endure forever” – Ecclesiastes 3:14
Nearly everyone wants to live a life of significance. We want to make our time to count; we want our lives to be meaningful. We would like to engage in won that has some kind of lasting effect.

So how can you make sure that what you do today somehow reverberates all the way into eternity? Solomon provides the key: By keeping your life within God-ordained seasons and activities. The progression goes something like this: God sets out the framework of life (Ecclesiastes 3:l—8). “He has made everything beautiful in its time” (v. ll). “He has . . . set eternity in the hearts of men” (v. ll), and He wants everyone to find satisfaction in their work (v. 13). To what end? “Everything God does will endure forever.” (v. 14).

If you make sure that you are doing what you are supposed to be doing that is, if you continually align your life according to God’s agenda and timing, then you start the chain reaction that will end with eternal significance. So when you ask yourself Will my life count? you need to answer with another question: Am I doing what God wants me to do in this season of my life? If the answer to the latter is yes, then the answer to the former also is yes. If the answer to the latter is no, the answer to the former also is no.

How confident are you that what you’re doing now – the way your current season of life is being played out is precisely what God wants you to be doing? The answer to that question is the key to whether what you are doing today will have eternal impact.
