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

The LORD desires to answer your prayers and to work wondrous things in and through you. This will be so as you pursue His will and be full of love, faith and be obedient to His directions in your life by precept and promise. You already have the testimony of many within the Scriptures that prove that the LORD can do good and great things when all is submitted to Him Be encouraged by the fact that you are at an important stage in human history and that you have a valid and vital contribution to make that will make a difference. Be reminded of the words of Mordecai to Esther: “Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” – 4: 14. You are not a mistake but an essential part of God’s providence for this late hour. So arise, today, and fulfil His expectations.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

Deuteronomy 28:2 (WEB)
”and all these blessings shall come on you, and overtake you, if you shall listen to the voice of Yahweh your God”.
Deuteronomy 28 is a chapter that starts with all of the promises of God to Israel if they simply listen to the voice of God and follow His ways. We read that there are a truckload of blessings that God wants to pour on all of us who simply say ‘yes’ to His plans and purposes. In today’s promise, we read that these blessings will actually overtake us as we live our daily lives.

When I think of God’s blessings overtaking us, I picture everyone running the race marked out for them that the writer of Hebrews mentions in chapter 12:1-2 and while we are running, God’s blessings catch up to us and overwhelm us!

I know it wouldn’t be fair to mention Deuteronomy 28 and all of the blessings that God desires to give without also acknowledging that this same chapter ends with all the curses that await those who disobey Him. I really don’t want to dwell on the last half of this chapter because I know that it is our Father’s heart to bless and not to curse.

The New Covenant is a covenant of blessings. We know from Galatians 3:13-14 that Christ became a curse for us so that the blessing that God blessed Abraham with would be ours in Christ. In Ephesians 1:3 we read that we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places because of Jesus. God’s heart is that His blessings would overtake you in every area of your life today.

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

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

“You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one” – roude

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
T.Addington
BEHAVIOR AND ACCOUNTABILITY

“God will bring to judgment both the righteous and the wicked” -Ecclesiastes 3: 17
The good news is that God sets the agenda and timing for all of life. The bad news is that people behave as if they can do whatever they want. Folks act as if God either does not exist or is blind. They walk all over other people and engage in activities that give them an unfair advantage—or are just plain wrong.

One of Solomon’s most attractive traits is that he does not sugar-coat the darker realities of life. In this case, he does not suggest that every person who does selfish things will have a conversion experience and begin living a reformed life. But he does contend that everything will turn out right in the end. “God will bring to judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time for every deed” (Ecclesiastes 3:17).

Men might be arrogant, but God is not ignorant. He knows, He sees, He evaluates, and He judges——both the good and the bad. People might behave today as if they can do whatever they want. But tomorrow is coming. One of the practical realities of that truth is that after we have done everything in our power to see that justice happens, we need to relax with the knowledge that God will take it from here.

We can only go so far. We can only do so much. But God certainly is capable of doing the rest. That truth helps answer the question of how. We can find satisfaction in life on a daily basis when there is so much obvious injustice and oppression within our line of sight. God has that on His screen; it’s on His list. Nobody escapes G0d’s notice, and He will one day bring justice to all men.
