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

Be assured, as the Lord has promised, He that hath begun a good work in you will also finish it to perfection. Having started, He has every reason to bring to a successful conclusion. You may be disappointed at times at the rate of progress but the Lord has the patience and commitment to keep steadily working in and on you until He realises His ultimate objectives. There is every reason for you to be hopeful and happy at the final result. Having graciously and generously inputted your life and supplied the essential gifts and graces to make it attractive and effective, He will see to it that you are suited to serve in a greater fashion in His eternal kingdom. It may be a surprise to you in that eternal day and revelation but you will be pleased that He has not laboured in vain. You will heave much to be grateful for!

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“For his anger is but for a moment. His favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may stay for the night, but joy comes in the morning.

I can remember times when our children were young, they would sometimes do things that required my discipline. Even in the most serious of situations, my displeasure with them only lasted but a moment. Any loving father or mother knows that little kids will inevitably make some mistakes along the way and there is loads of grace for that.

If we in our humanness feel this way towards our children, how much more does our Heavenly Father feel this way towards us! That is why King David says in today’s promise that God’s displeasure only lasts for a moment, but His favour is ours for life!

May the love of God dismantle every wrong belief that we have of the character and nature of our Heavenly Father. He loves to love us at every turn! He can’t help but love because He is the epitome of love itself! May you feel His favour shining upon you today and for the rest of your life!

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
ADAM ’S RIB

The first ever surgical operation on a human body was performed by God. With Adam under divine anaesthesia, the Lord extracted “a rib”, and expertly sutured the wound. But the amazing sequel to this act was that of that piece of “bone and flesh” the Lord God made a woman, a “help meet” for the first man. It was the origin of marriage, “they shall become one flesh” (Gen 2:18, 21-24).
Our Lord laid this down as the divine pattern and purpose of marriage, for all time “from the beginning” (Matt 19:3-9). The life-long union of one woman to one man is God’s standard. To depart from it leads to personal, domestic and social disaster – a message for our times. Marriage, as decreed by God, embraces three basic principles:

First, companionship, for man was not meant to be alone: he needs a mate. Secondly, co-habitation, for the intended issue of “male and female” is the procreation of children. Family is the “building-block” of society. Thirdly, co-operation, marriage is a joint-venture. It is as husband and wife work together that domestic harmony and service prevails.
Adam was never complete without Eve. Only she could fill up the vacancy.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“Charity is a virtue of the heart and not of the hands” – Addison

“Every charitable act is a stepping stone toward heaven”- Beecher

“No sound ought to be heard in the church but the healing voice of Christian charity” – Burke

“Better to expose ourselves to ingratitude than fail in assisting the unfortunate” – Du Coeur

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
T.Addington
JOINT VENTURE (PART ONE)

“Two are better than one, because they have a good return or their work” – Ecclesiastes 4:9

Partnership is such a great idea. A life at work is full of all kinds of ups and downs that are difficult to face alone. Work was God’s idea all the way back in Genesis 1, but the Fall in Genesis 3 made that good idea much harder to achieve: Adam was forrced to work “by the sweat of [his] brow” (Genesis 3:19).

None of us has ever met anybody at the end of a career who told us that the mire experience was like eating a great piece of cake—that it was all easy and fun, that stress was never part of the equation, and that he loved every minute of it. Give us a break! Finding someone to share the load is inherently appealing. Who wants carry the burden alone?

Solomon interrupts his logical train of thought in this chapter to recommend a joint approach to work. He suggests that it is better to have someone who can share the load and help carry the burden, someone (or perhaps more than just one individual) who can be a sounding board in developing strategy, making difficult phone calls, getting the business, and defending against the competition.

Partnership can take on many different forms: a fifty-fifty ownership split in a business, colleagues on a work team, two friends at work who work through difficult issues together, or prayer partners who are willing to wrestle corporate issues to the mat in God’s presence.

Do you have someone who shoulders the burden of work with you, someone who will be there to help you up when you fall down? According to Solomon, a life at work with someone else looks much different than a life at work by yourself.
