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 something to Focus your mind on are included that can be developed more fully by you. I trust you will find such refreshing and helpful

A PROPHETIC WORD FOR YOU

The great impulsive and compulsive that must be the inward driving force of your inward being must be ‘the love of God.’ Paul could state of Christians of the first century – “the love of Christ constraineth us” – 2 Cor 5: 14. If you are to live and work triumphantly and receive the approval of your LORD, you must possess the dynamic passion that motivated Him and caused Him to succeed against all seeming odds. He is able to possess and inspire you so that this is a reality and cause you to achieve seemingly impossible things. Even your opponents that appear irresistible will bow and bend to this unique power that dictates you and all you do and say. This sweet, heavenly quality will influence and also influence those that you minister to and so all that takes place goes down to this distinctive motivating force. Be available today to its incoming and so you will succeed.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“Yahweh executes righteous acts, and justice for all who are oppressed” – Psalm 103:6
Isn’t it good to know that God promises to provide justice for those who are oppressed? I am amazed at the number of verses in the Bible which speak about God’s heart for the weak of this world, the poor, the mistreated, children, widows, orphans, etc. He has always been the protector of those who have difficulty protecting themselves.

He is a God that does not rejoice in evil or injustice, but rejoices when the truth wins out. (1 Corinthians 13:6) Whatever unjust situation that you find yourself in today, be encouraged to know that God is for you and He understands your life and your suffering. It is my prayer that each one of us will be able to rest in our God and Father’s saving, protecting power today.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
EXCELSIOR!

‘Excelsior – higher, higher!” cried the young enthusiast of Longfellow’s poem of that name. His trouble was that he started to climb a mountain in the worst season and in failing light. He heeded not the advice of experience, though he spurned the blandishments of beauty.
He failed: but his spirit was right. If only his enthusiasm had been matched by good sense!

As Christians we must ever press on to higher things. Our “excelsior” is to ever seek greater and richer experiences in God: as the hymn-writer puts it:-

“I’m pressing on the upward way, – New heights I’m gaining every day; Still praying as l onward bound, ‘Lord plant my feet on higher ground’.”
But, unlike the hapless youth of “Excelsior” fame, we have the Spirit of God to gird us and the Word of God to guide us. With these our holy ambition to reach the heights can be fulfilled. Yet not completely, for there will always be more of God to know. After a miraculous ministry, after ‘visions and revelations of the Lord” (2 Cor 12:1), Paul still felt he had not “attained” (Phil 3:12). In his declining years he felt there was so much more to know of Jesus – and he still pursued that prize.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“Conscience is a sacred sanctuary where God alone may enter as judge” -Lamennais

“Conscience is a walkie-talkie set by which God speaks to us” – Metcalf

“Live with men as if God saw you; converse with God as if men heard you” – Seneca

“There is no witness so terrible-no accuser so powerful as conscience” -Sophocles

“Conscience warns us as a friend before it punishes us as a judge” -Stanislaus

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
GET IN THE GAME – Thomas Addington

“Whoever digs a pit may fall into it. . . whoever splits log: may he endangered by them. Ecclesiastes 10:8, 9

Everything we do in life has some element of risk. Every day we face relationships, in the stock market, in our next big decisions. Sometimes we face these risks with fierce tenacity; other times we cower in fear.

What causes some of us to be more adept at taking risks than others? Is it our confidence in our decision-making prowess? Is it that we don’t care about the results? Not usually. Some people see risks as opportunities. They ask themselves, What is the worst thing that can happen? and then they proceed to take the chance. Other people agonize day and night over risk-taking decisions until they either give themselves ulcers or the opportunity passes them by.

No matter how large or small your risk-taking muscles might be, God wants you to trust Him. He wants you to exercise faith that overcomes fear daily. Don’t stay on the sidelines. Engage. Struggle. Fail. Trust. Be courageous. Don’t become like the sluggard in Proverbs 22:13 who never takes a chance because he says, “There is a lion outside!” or, “I will be murdered in the streets!”

When’s the last time you took a risk so big that if God didn’t come through, you’d look like an absolute fool? Take a risk on God; He’s already taken a risk on you. He demonstrated His own love for you before you even knew Him (Romans 5:8). You could have rejected Him, but He took the risk.
Why are you holding back? Are you afraid of losing your status or power? Of being known as a Christian? Of sharing your faith with your friend? Go ahead—— take a chance. Don’t give up on God; He hasn’t given up on you.
