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 LORD is not only your great Creator; He is your constant Renewer. He has the power to come to you when you are fatigued, weary, spiritually and physically drained and by His Spirit and Word infuse new life and energy that will transform your state. It does not matter how far gone you are, how much you may sense your weakness and weariness, in a moment, as you are prepared to look to and wait on Him He will make His presence and promise good. The prophetic word can be relied upon: “He gives power to the weak and to them that have no might He increaseth strength . . . They that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength: they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint” – Isaiah 40: 29-31.. How about that then? Get your renewal today!!!

A GOLDEN PROMISE

And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me for his heavenly Kingdom; to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen” – 2 Tim 4: 18

Paul the Apostle, was writing to his spiritual son, Timothy, when he made this reference. We know from the telling of Paul’s life in the Bible that his life was difficult. He was stoned, beaten, ship wrecked, imprisoned and persecuted at every turn.

I am sure there were times where he struggled with discouragement. But even through the darkest moments, we do know that he eventually came to a place where he declared in Romans 8:38 that nothing on earth or in heaven, could ever separate him from the love of God in Jesus Christ.

From what I understand, this letter to Timothy was near the end of Paul’s life and he was already looking towards his eternal home in heaven. Praise God for his declaration that the Lord would rescue him from evil and safely deliver him into an everlasting kingdom where there would be no more pain or suffering.

Praise God for this promise! No matter what trials you are suffering at this moment, you can rest assured that our God and Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ will rescue you and safely deliver you into an amazing, everlasting kingdom.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
RAINLESS CLOUDS –  Jude 12

Clouds may take various forms – the high and horizontal STRATUS, the glowing halo of NIMBUS, or the thundery darkness of CUMULUS – but all are linked with moisture and the possibility of its precipitation in rain: God’s method of irrigation.
Clouds are part of the meteorological cycle that sustains nature (cf Eccles 1:3-7). Sun draws up moisture from the sea; ind drives the clouds thus formed over the land to be deposited in refreshing rain, rain flows in streams and rivers to the ocean whence it came – the cycle is complete. But what a vital contribution to earth’s ecology!

So spiritually, the sun of God’s love, the wind of God’s Spirit combine to send blessings to men. Our heartfelt response in praise and thanksgiving complete the cycle of divine purpose.

But “clouds without water” are not only a disappointment, they are an anomaly. Clouds are meant to be vessels of blessing. But Jude speaks of certain intruders into early Church fellowship who made a profession of faith, but ministered nothing good. They made a show of piety, but all they did was to darken the sky, hiding the light of God’s Truth, empty shams, rainless clouds.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“O Lord, convert the world – and begin with me” – A Chinese student’s prayer

“Conversion is but the first step in the divine life. As long as we live we should more and more be turning from all that is evil, and to all that is good” – Edwards

“Conversion is separating ourselves from the course and custom of this world, and devoting ourselves to the conduct of the word of God” – Henry

“Walk by new rules, towards new ends, from new principles. Make a new choice of the way. Choose new paths to walk in, new leaders to walk after, new companions to walk with. Old things should pass away, and all things become new. The man is what he was not, does what he did not” – Henry

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
LIVE JOYFULLY, BUT D0N’T FORGET THE TIMES OF TRIAL – Thomas Addington

“However many years a man may live, let him enjoy them all. But let him remember the days of darkness, for they will he many. Everything to come is meaningless” – Ecclesiastes 11:8

One of the most unusual aspects about Ecclesiastes is Solomon’s constant admonition to live in joy while not forgetting parts of life that are less pleasant. He does that again in these verses. “Enjoy all the years you have left,” he says, “but not without stopping every now and then to remember the hard times you’ve been through in your life.”

Ecclesiastes is a present-tense book. Solomon constantly asks us to enjoy the current season of life we’re in and the current job we have because, as he points out again and again, we just don’t know what tomorrow may hold. In saying that,

Solomon does not ignore the future, nor does he discount the past. He simply makes it clear that our goal in life is to enjoy the present. What’s done is done. V/hat’s to come will come soon enough, and it may be more pleasant or less pleasant than what we’re currently experiencing. But in either case, the focus of our time is now.

That in no way means that we should forget the past—-if we did that, we’d miss out on valuable lessons we learned during difficult times. Nor does it mean that we should not have an eye toward the future. Solomon frequently says that what we do today will be looked at by God in the future. Therefore, we have to make sure that our current activity aligns with His plan and His thinking.

The New Testament states that we shouldn’t worry about tomorrow because it has enough troubles of its own (Matthew 6:34). In other words, we don’t need to live in the future or in the past.

Have you been living in the ‘past? Then begin to live in the present and learn to enjoy life today.
