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

ALWAYS AT HAND

David lived and worked with the consciousness that the LORD was ever at hand to help in time of need. It was nurtured within him throughout his whole life-time. As a youngster to old age he knew he was never alone because the greatest Friend and Helper was always close by to render His assistance and blessing. He assures the same in Psalm 121 to all who look to and put their trust in the LORD. Know that today He is with you to succour, strengthen and supply every need. There is never any likelihood that He will fail. It is not in His being and workings. So, whatever and whoever you are called to confront today, be calm and composed because He is there is an active role and will give evidence of His presence and ability. With Him alongside, you are a sure winner!!!

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“ For as the rain comes down and the snow from the sky, and doesn’t return there, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, and gives seed to the sower and bread to the eater; 11 so shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing I sent it to do” – Isaiah 55: 10-11

In today’s promise, God says that His Word is poured out onto the earth just like the rain and snow fall in their appointed seasons. God’s intent is to water every manner of seed so that it will blossom to its full potential. His Word is like that for us. We can drink in everything that He says and eat every word that He speaks. Jesus told us… ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
ROOM FOR THE SKY

That superb English landscape painter, John Constable, wrote: “That landscape painter who does not make his skies a very material part of his composition neglects to avail himself of one of his greatest aids. The sky is the source of light in nature, and governs everything.”

And so with life. All that the sky represents – heaven “beyond the blue” – is essential to a full-blown maturity. Take spiritual hopes and values out of our experience, and what’s left?

Bunyan, in his peerless “Pilgrim’s Progress”, gives a picture of a man raking in the rubbish-tip and reaching out after a bubble. Above his head hangs a glorious crown, but he has no eyes for that. And so many grovel in earthly pursuits, and fail to see the heavenly glories within their grasp.

In all our living we must find room for the sky to complete the picture; in all our preaching we must never neglect the ultimates of other-worldly ideals. Leave out the sky and life’s perspective lacks reality; leave out the sky, and hope’s expectations become dim. “Set your affection on things above,” counselled Paul. ln other words, “make room for the sky” (Col 3:2).

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“To become Christ-like is the only thing in the whole world worth caring for, the thing before which every ambition of man is folly and all lower achievement vain” – Drummond

“The dying Jesus is the evidence of God’s anger toward sin; but the living Jesus is the proof of God’s love and forgiveness.” – Eifert

“The greatest proof of the Christ-like life for others, is not how far a man can logically analyze his reasons for believing, but how far in practice he will stake his life on his beliefs” –T.S. Elliot

“No man can follow Christ and go astray” –Frederic W. Farrar

“He who shall introduce into public affairs the principles of Christ will change the face of the world” — Benjamin Franklin

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
NOTHING TO NOTHING Thomas Addington

“Naked a man comes from his mother’s womb, and as he comes, so be departs” – Ecclesiastes 5:15

From his vantage point as the wealthiest man alive, Solomon observes how other wealthy people act with their wealth. He notices, for example, that wealth that is hoarded harms its owner. But hoarding wealth also indicates a belief in something that is not true. When we hoard wealth, we act as if we will be able to take our worldly wealth with us into eternity.

Whom are we keeping it for? If we have our arms around what we have earned while simultaneously trying to push everyone else away, then apparently we have fooled ourselves into thinking that we really will be able to keep it. To that, Solomon says——without equivocation—that “ [n] aked a man comes from his mother’s womb, and as he comes, so he departs. He takes nothing from his labour that he can carry in his hand” (Ecclesiastes 5:15). As the saying goes, hearses don’t pull U-Hauls.

When God gives the gift of wealth, we must use it within the boundaries that God draws, including the reality of death being a final bookend. This suggests the final question: How can we properly allocate our wealth while we are alive? We must either designate its actual use during our lives or designate how it will be used after we die.

Have you made proper provisions for the use of your assets? Because life is so uncertain, this is better done sooner than later.
