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 most secure and assured place for you to live is found in the words of the psalmist –“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the ALMIGHTY”- Psalm 90: 1. There is no doubt about it; He is more than able to look after those who choose to live under His wing and covering. In a world that is full of conflict, chaos and confusion there is someone you can retreat to and discover that He can relieve of all anxiety and stress. He is as His name declares – “THE ALMIGHTY”. So instead of trying to live by your own wits and meagre resources or looking to the world, in which you reside for assistance, know that the LORD is well able to offer full and complete protection now and eternally. It calls for your complete love, faith and obedience, so you will discover that He will not uphold but minister to you of His grace and favour under His wings.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

”We are courageous, I say, and are willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be at home with the Lord” – 2 Cor 5:8

I am so glad that Paul the Apostle made this declaration that reveals a very special promise from God… To be absent from our body is to be present with the Lord! He promises to never leave us or forsake us in this world, and when it is time for us to leave this world, we are with Him forever!

Hebrews 12:1 says that we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses that have gone before us that are cheering us on in our race. One day, we will be joined with Jesus, in eternal glory, and will echo the same cheers that the great cloud of witnesses voice today. Hallelujah that death has lost its sting! Nothing can ever separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ. When we are absent from our body, we will be at home in our Papa God’s presence.

This promise is very comforting for me and the thought of my loved ones who have gone on to be with the Lord already. My prayer today is that everyone who reads this promise today will be comforted in knowing that all those who hope in Christ have this promise of eternal life.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
THE AGE OF NOISE

Aldous Auxley once commented: “The twentieth century is among other things the ‘Age of Noise’. Physical noise, mental noise and noise of desire . . . All the resources of our miraculous technology have been thrown into the current assault against silence.”

Unwanted noise, often merely a cacophony of senseless sound, is an assault on our privacy. Homes are no longer a sanctuary; they have become a sounding board for raucous music. Even churches are no longer an escape from the clashing cymbals of pop-designer music. Public address systems magnify often unwanted noise-forms into our worship. Why all this thunder of sound?

First, the devil does not want us to think. If he can fill our ears with ballad and chorus, he can close it to “the still small voice” of deeper and loftier things. Read 1 Kings 19:12; Psalm 104:34.

Secondly, human nature does not pause to think. To a quiet mind comes unsolvable problems: the world has gone mad, what can l do about it? Nothing! – so shut it out. But noise not only damages hearing, it deadens oursensibilities and dulls our thinking.

Christians must ever find a quiet comer in which to listen to God.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“It is right to be contented with what we have, never with what we are” – Mackintosh

“He is well paid that is well satisfied” – Shakespeare

“You say, “If I had a little more, I should be very satisfied.” You make a mistake. If you are not content with what you have, you would not be satisfied if it were doubled” – Spurgeon

“A man’s contentment is in his mind, not in the extent of his possessions.” -Spurgeon

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT DON’T ALWAYS SAY WHAT YOU THINK – Thomas Addington

“Do not revile the king even in your thoughts, or curse the rich in your bedroom, because a bird of the air may carry your words, and a bird on the wing may report what you say” – Ecclesiastes 10:20

We’ve all had experiences in which we said something we really felt, only to find out later that it was passed on to someone we never intended to hear it. It’s an entirely natural impulse to give voioe to our thoughts about other people and their actions. Something in us wants our thoughts to have verbal expression. We simply enjoy talking about our opinions of other people.

The only trouble is that sometimes when we express our opinions, the expression does not end when we stop talking. In one form or another, it gets passed on to someone else. This is a great risk, especially with our growing dependence on e-mail and other forms of electronic communication. .

But this problem isn’t new. It didn’t just surface with the new economy. According to Solomon, we need to be careful to not revile our leaders or curse the rich because a “bird of the air may carry your words, and a bird on the wing may report what you say” (Ecclesiastes 10:20). Even when we think we are being especially careful, our opinions may find expression in ways that would horrify us. We say in retrospect, “I never would have said that if I had any idea that person would find out what I was thinking.”

For Solomon, keeping quiet is another manifestation of someone who is wise. If the fool multiplies his words (Ecclesiastes 10:14), then the wise man watches his very carefully. In this case, when the words you want to say involve someone who is not in the room and whose presence would cause you not to say what you’re thinking, then it’s best to simply keep your mouth shut. In fact, Solomon says that we shouldn’t even think such thoughts. And if we shouldn’t think them, we certainly should be very careful about saying them. You just never know when and where that information will resurface.
