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 Quotations and 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

Each day from a natural standpoint is of change. This is very apparent in the passing scene in the change of weather, circumstances etc. So the LORD has come into your life to bring immediate, continuous and ultimate change that will to be to your distinct gain and His glory. Through His grace and favour, His nature is imparted so that you can take on His likeness more and more. He has the objective of transforming you into His image so that you become a pure reflection of His Person in being and behaviour. Added to this, are His choice gifts and abilities so that you can act and achieve things of an extraordinary nature. When you finally arrive in heaven you will be fully prepared and suited to live and serve in greatest sense. All His effort and commitment will not have been wasted but will bring into being that which has planned from eternity past. So be ready for the changes!!

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“For Yahweh is good. His loving kindness endures forever,  his faithfulness to all generations”- Psalm 100:5 (WEB)

Our God and Father is good and His mercy will go on forever and ever. The more that you and I are convinced of the goodness of God, the more we will yield to the extravagant love that He showers on us every day.

The enemy of our soul would try to depict God as a distant, angry, religious, and wrathful judge just waiting for us to make a mistake. That is the furthest thing from the truth, for God is the ultimate expression of love itself. At the very core of our heavenly Father’s heart is a goodness that none of us have experienced this side of heaven. That is why it is so hard for some of us to believe that God’s love is really real.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
A PREACHER’S “IN-FIT”

We often hear of a preacher’s outfit, but what of its essential counterpart – the “in-fit”, without which no preacher of Christ’s gospel can be effective. May we suggest three essential elements?

First the preachers own nature. Paul spoke of being “separated (by God) from his mothers womb” (Gal 1:15). Is it possible that the very make-up of our being – our temperament, tastes and tendencies – are indicative of what God planned us to be? According to Hebrews 5:1-3, a priest’s own humanity is essential to his being a humane minister.

Secondly, the preachers experience. God often puts His servants “through the mill” in order to grind them into shape. His own experience of life adds reality and authenticity to his message. Every preacher should be “a witness unto Me” (Acts 1:8), and no-one can be a witness without experience.

The famous artist, J M W Turner, once had himself lashed to the mast of a ship during a storm. His subsequent painting of the elemental forces of nature amazed his fellow-artists. lt was real: so should preachers preach from life.

Thirdly, the preachers vision. True and edifying ministry can only come from one who has seen God, and by Spirit- anointed ministry, reveals Him.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“Christ is not valued at all unless he be valued above all.” – St. Augustine

“The name of Christ-the one great word-well worth all the languages in earth or heaven” – Bailey

“If Christ is not divine, every impulse of the Christian world falls to a lower octave, and light and love and hope decline.” – Beecher

“Feed on Christ, and then go and live your life, and it is Christ in you that lives your life, that helps the poor, that tells the truth, that fights the battle, and that wins the crown” – Phillips Brooks

“In Jesus I see the picture of the kind of man I know I ought to be” – Brown

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
T00 RICH TO SLEEP – Thomas Addington

“The sleep of a labourer is sweet . . . but the abundance of a rich man permit him no sleep” – Ecclesiastes 5:12

The wealthy have it tough! Not only do they have to wrestle with whether they love money, but they also must deal with two other inevitabilities of having significant amounts of money. The first issue Solomon mentions is so true it almost makes us want to laugh. The more we have, the more people there are around to consume what we have. Or, as Solomon puts it: “As goods increase, so do those who consume them” (Ecclesiastes 5:11).

Money invites its own infrastructure of people who follow that money: accountants, lawyers, the IRS, landscapers, decorators, brokers. In a sense, Solomon confirms the adage that it is more difficult to keep money than it is to make it.

That isn’t the worst of it. Even more distressing is that the more money we have, the less sleep we get. Such late-night musings as, What happens the stock market goes through a correction? or Will the hurricane sweep away our place on the beach? replace what used to be slumber. Ironically, the folks who surround us because of our wealth sleep just fine, but we are left awake. ,

When God gives wealth, it brings unique challenges that are only appreciated by those who have it. Money by itself is not bad, but neither is it a panacea. It requires every bit as much attention to its proper stewardship as it required in earning it.

Although Solomon doesn’t say so, perhaps one of the best ways to alleviate the stress caused by having money is to give it away. Maybe then some of the people who surround us to spend it would go away, and perhaps we could finally get some sleep!
