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

There are no half-measures with the Lord in His dealings with you. He does not simply want to bless you a little but greatly. He said to Abraham who serves as an example to all: “Surely blessing I will bless you” – – Hebrews 6: 14. David could testify in Psalm 23 “my cup runneth over”. He is a God of absolute fullness and purposes to share such with those who live in close proximity to Him, believing His word and walking in the path of obedience. Seeing there are no half-measures with Him, the same is required of you. As there is a preparedness in you to let Him have all and be in full control of you, then you will experience His abiding and abounding richness that will manifest in every area of your life. Someone asked General Booth the secret of the success of the Salvation Army. He said: “The day when I said the \Lord could have all there is of William Booth”. Make sure He has all!!

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“by which will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all” – Hebrews 10:10

I love the finality of this promise. We are made holy by the once and for all sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross. The price He paid two thousand years ago covers our past sins, our present sins and our future sins. There is nothing else that needs to be paid or could be paid. As Jesus cried out on the cross, “It is finished”.

Hallelujah for such a promise! Our sanctification is secure for all eternity because of the finished work of our elder brother, Jesus Christ! As Paul says in Romans 8:1, there is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus! What a glorious promise!

Sometimes it is easy for us to vacillate between living in the forgiveness that God has already given us and feeling guilt and shame. The blood of Jesus has settled this issue once and for all! All we need to do is simply accept this free gift and walk in the assuredness that we could never add anything to the amazing, extravagant gift that God the Father has already given us.

When I think of the permanence of Jesus’ sacrifice, and how my redemption and sanctification has been secured for eternity, it brings me into a reassuring peace and rest knowing that when God looks at me, He doesn’t see all my sin and my shortcomings. …He sees me through the once and for all finished sacrifice of the spotless Lamb of God. What good news!
JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
A NIFTY NEPHEW

Paul had a sister whose son was finishing his education in the centre of Jewish learning, Jerusalem. He secretly admired his notorious uncle Paul, and when he overheard a plot to assassinate him, he reported it to the Roman commander who held the apostle in custody. His nifty act saved the life of his intrepid uncle. What a nephew! (Acts 23:16-22).

Divine providence. God uses many means to preserve His servants. Here a close relative (for “blood is thicker than water”) at great personal risk plays an important role in this drama of apostolic life.

Divine promise. The Lord had given His word that Paul would testify in Rome, and no machinations of men could break that holy promise.

Divine purpose. The presence and testimony of Paul in Rome, the centre of the Gentile world, was part of God’s plan. No plot of alien Jewry, no force of stormy nature could frustrate God’s will. When the Lord plans His people’s lives neither earth nor hell can prevail against it.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“A church membership does not make a Christian any more than owning a piano makes a musician” – Meador

“I thought when I became a Christian I had nothing to do but just to lay my oars in the bottom of the boat and float along. But I soon found that I would have to go against the current” – D.L. Moody

“To be like Christ is to be a Christian” – Penn

“Many Christians are like chestnuts-very pleasant nuts, but enclosed in very prickly burrs, which need various dealings of Nature and her grip of frost before the kernel is disclosed” – Smith

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
WHAT WE DO AFFECTS WHO WE ARE Thomas Addington

”Extortion turns a wise man into a fool, and a bribe corrupts the heart”
Ecclesiastes 7:7

We would like to believe that who we are is separate from actions that we undertake, that our inner being is protected even when our actions are less than perfect. But Solomon contends that what we do today will have a profound effect on the state of our hearts: “Extortion,” he says, “turns a wise man into a fool, and a bribe corrupts the heart” (Ecclesiastes 7:7).

Every day, we make decisions. We decide to forgive, to cheat, to show grace, to get even, to play fair, to push our positions of power, to do things legally, or to do things unethically.

When we play in the mud, we get our clothes dirty. When we engage in wrong behaviour, compromising ethics, or skewed thinking, we get our hearts dirty.
How that transformation happens is a mystery. It isn’t necessarily something that we can explain. The process may happen over time. But it does happen. When We engage in bad action, the result is bad hearts.

Knowing that ahead of time allows us to avoid the trap. It also gives us a greater sense of accountability for our actions. Nobody wakes up in the morning and wants a bad heart. But one of the ways a bad heart develops is by actions that are inappropriate.

What does your heart look like? If it has become dirty through unethical practices, then confess your sin to God and let Him cleanse you from your unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).
