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

One of the great, infinite attributes of the LORD is His mercy. He is outstandingly merciful. This really means to say – He is full and overflowing with loving-kindness to His creatures. All He desires and does is to grant His favour in so many ways every day. And this applies to you! He wants to manifest in a marked degree and measure His love which is to shown in glorious acts of kindness. The great thing is, as you also imbibe and manifest this quality of spirit in action so you shall have even greater evidences of His mercy. The promise is: “Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy” – Matt 5:7. So take a leaf out of His book, imbibe His nature and enjoy His loving-kindness in an abundant manner”!

A GOLDEN PROMISE

By Yahweh’s word, the heavens were made; all their army by the breath of his mouth” – Psalm 33:6

Our God and Father is so big that He created the heavens just by a word! He is so powerful that just a breath from His mouth caused all of the stars to come into being. When you think of this promise, take time to reflect on the bigness of our God!

So many times in the busyness of life, we get caught up in our own struggles and the mountains that we face on a daily basis. When I think of this promise, I gain a perspective that is greater than my own experience. Though the mountains in my life are big, my God is much bigger! Though there are times when I feel overwhelmed by the orphan world system that I live in, I am encouraged when I think about the greatness of our God!

He is so powerful that He simply took a breath and the stars came into being. If that is the case, then I know that He is strong enough to save you and me (Zephaniah 3:17). No matter how insurmountable your circumstances are today, be encouraged that the God who created the heavens and the earth is your Heavenly Dad.

He is for you, not against you. May God help each one of us to rest in the amazing knowledge of His greatness today and His promise to care for everyone who belongs to Him.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
THE GENETIC FALLACY

Since the discovery of DNA, that marvellous intricate system that patterns our lives, many claims have been extended as to the power of this genetic code.
Suggestions are made that what we have hitherto considered immoderate, and even immoral behaviour are merely molecular mishaps, therefore excusable.
This is nonsense, and makes a mockery of ethics, both natural and Biblical. Because I have a natural tendency does not mean I must indulge it. I can discipline myself.

It may surprise you to know that DNA is spoken of in the Bible: read Psalm 139:13-16. “I am fearfully and wonderfully made . . . my substance curiously wrought . . . in Thy book all my members were written.” The language is not scientific, but who could have put it better?
In the same Psalm it says – “Search me . . . see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way” (vs 23,24). Genetics does not eliminate ethics. The grace of God can subdue and direct into ways of truth and righteousness all those innate energies of nature.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“The man who covets is always poor” – Claudian

“Though the home is a palace, yet to a discontented mind it is a prison” -Henry

“Those that will not be content with their allotments shall not have the comfort of their achievements” – Henry

It is not the man who has too little, but the man who craves more, that is poor” – Seneca

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
IT ALL COMES BACK TO GOD – Thomas Addington

“New all have been heard;- here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, fbr this is the whale [duty] of man. Ecclesiates 12:13
Solomon has just written a book that is chock-full of weighty, often confusing information. He poses tough questions: Why is there corruption in the world? How can God allow evil? What should I do when there’s oppression? And he doesn’t provide many answers, except to say that God knows what’s going on and sooner or later, whoever does bad things is going to be called into account.

But in the end, Solomon does What any good teacher would do after a confusing, thought-provoking lecture—he sums it all up with one succinct statement. “In case you didn’t get it the first time,” he says, “here’s the essence: Fear God, and keep His commands. If you do that, you’ve done everything.”

If we’re wondering what to do with all the information we’ve absorbed as we’ve read Ecclesiastes, this passage leaves no doubt. We are to focus on the person of God and on the content of His Word. That is our whole duty. It’s not part of the answer. It is the answer. These words and God’s person ‘give us the answer to the meaning of life and the context in which to understand what happens in life.

One of Stephen Covey’s “seven habits for highly eflfective people” is to “start with the end in mind.” The Book of Ecclesiastes might have looked very different if Solomon had done that. Since he didn’t, he resorts to warning us not to make the same mistake. Our duty, he tells us, is to start with the end in mind. Don’t do every- thing else and then realize you need to fear God. Fear God, and then everything else will fall into place.

Or are you making the same mistake Solomon made? If so, reverse your course today. Do your God-ordained duty: Fear Him and keep His commandments.
