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

Remind yourself today where the Lord has spiritually situated you. Paul clearly states that you have been raised with Christ and are now seated with Him ‘in heavenly places’ – Ephesians 2: 6. This means you now view life and circumstances from a new position and through His eyes and mind. Instead of allowing the world to mould your thoughts, determine your desires and actions, your fresh position enables you to act in accordance with heaven’s understanding and assurance. You are able to put the wisest and best construction on matters and determine your affairs on earth in a better and more fulfilled manner. Your spiritual responsibility is to see that you remain seated in that seat won for you by Christ and allow heaven to inspire and govern your thinking and living on earth. Today will be a great day as you do this. If you have lost sight of this and your position, get back into place!

A GOLDEN PROMISE
Matthew 13:11 (WEB)
He answered them, “To you it is given to know  the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but it is not given to them”.

In today’s passage of Scripture, Jesus tells His disciples that it was His Father’s plan for them to know the mysteries of the kingdom. Jesus had just finished telling the crowds the parable of the sower and the seed and then He took the time to explain to His beloved friends the meaning of this story.

Jesus did this because it wasn’t His intention to keep His disciples in the dark. His desire (and His Father’s desire) is always to deepen our level of revelation of the vastness of the kingdom in which we are called to live in. He doesn’t want us to be left in the dark because we are called to be children of light!

It gives our Father great pleasure to give us His kingdom. (Luke 12:32) In John 5:19-20, Jesus made this statement… 19 Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed. (NIV)

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
ACID RAIN

Air pollutants from factory chimneys and car exhausts are deposited (often very far from their source) by what is termed “acid rain”. It is destructive of tree life and forests in Norway and Sweden are being devastated by this poisonous deposit originating in Britain.

In moral circles there is a more sinister deposit that destroys reputation, mars relationships and discolours fellowship. It is gossip, particularly that gossip that carries mischievous innuendoes, questionable rumours or denigrating spite. The Lord said to lsrael: “Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among Thy people” (Lev 19:16). A scandal-monger, a peddler of confidences Prov 20:19), a petty detractor can do much harm. Like acid rain”, it can pollute minds, spoil good repute and poison friendships.

But gossip may be redeemed by making it a vehicle of God’s message to needy humans. We can, in the words of late missionary, “gossip the Gospel”. If we feel it necessary to criticise, let it be open, fair and constructive. But we are all human, and sometimes slip on the banana-skin of gossip.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“The whole world is sustained by God’s charity”– The Talmud

“Loving-kindness is greater than laws; and the charities of life are more than all ceremonies” – The Talmud

“I do not give lectures or a little charity, when I give I give myself” -Whitman

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
T.Addington
POOR AND WISE OR RICH AND FOOLISH?

“Better a poor but wise youth than an old but foolish king who no longer knows how to take warning.” – Ecclesiastes 4:13

There is almost nothing more discouraging than working around people who don’t listen, who are stubborn even when confronted with data, and who are generally unteachable. They already know all the answers. Their minds are made up. Good argument to the contrary means nothing. Even their polite nods mask a steel resolve to go their own direction.

About people like that, Solomon weighs in with strong opinion: “Better a poor but wise youth than an old but foolish king who no longer knows how to take warning” (Ecclesiastes 4:13).

No matter where these unreachable individuals reside in the corporate hierarchy, they are obstacles to be reckoned with. Anyone could fall into this category—the big boss, the building engineer, the head of the mail room, or the travel agent. But at all costs, don’t let it be you.

How do you take suggestions? What do you do with evaluation and feedback?
Where is your response on the defensiveness meter? When was the last time you thanked someone for giving you negative feedback? When someone comes to you with an opinion different from your own, how would they describe your response? Would they use the words love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, or self-control (Galatians 5:22 23)? As Solomon reminds us, it is better to end up poor and wise than rich and foolish. ‘

What is worse than being wrong? Being wrong and not knowing or admitting it.
