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

There is a time and moment when hesitation has to cease and firm decision and action must take place. Whilst it is important to ponder and pray for a while, it is absolutely essential that you resolve and take action. Do not spend your life simply going over things again and again when you know you must choose and do what is required no matter how challenging and demanding. There is that precise and special moment when you must step out to perform, only then do you see the good consequences of your conclusion. Thankfully, with the help of the LORD, the Holy Spirit and good counsellors, you can be assisted in always doing what is good, right and best and come out delighted over the moves and action. May you be thus enabled everyday to decide and do what is God’s will.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“Know therefore that Yahweh your God, he is God, the faithful God, who keeps covenant and loving kindness with them who love him and keep his
How long is a generation? Some say 40 years, others say 100 years. Whatever the number, multiply it by one thousand! Our God and Father promises to be faithful to His kids to a thousand generations! This promise encourages us to know that our God is faithful and that He will always keep his covenant of love and mercy…always!

Often the root of my struggles and anxieties are based on my difficulty to really believe this promise. Of course I know that God is faithful and that He is kind and merciful. But I believe that the understanding that I have of this promise has not fully possessed all my senses yet. If it did, I would never be anxious and I would never worry.

If you can identify with my own struggles, I want to encourage you. I believe that we are all on a journey of trust where God is convincing us more and more each day that He truly is trustworthy. I have heard this statement before, though I do not know its source… ‘The longest journey that a person can make is the 18″ journey from their head to their heart’.

I believe that we are being convinced more and more that God is faithful and merciful and kind, and that He keeps His covenant of kindness to a thousand generations. The more we believe this promise to be true, the more we will yield to His love in our hearts and rest in His goodness.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford

THE CHARIOT ROLLS ON

In the earliest days of the Christian Church believers could be counted – 120 (Acts 1:15), 3,000 (Acts 2:41), 5,000 (Acts 4:4). But growth was so rapid that numbers were swallowed up in terms like “numbers multiplied” (Acts 5:14, 6:7), “Churches . . . multiplied” (Acts 9:31) , “increased in number daily” (Acts 16:5). What an advance from digital reckoning to computer assessment.
Three reasons account for this.

First, they were full of life. Their new experience of God as evident in the joyful, almost frisky, activity. If a church s alive, it will grow. The life of-Christ, both in its quality and abundance, led to bounding experience. “Joy of the Lord” overflowed.

Secondly, they were fed. The Word of the Lord was multiplied (cf Acts 12:24, 19:20). Nourished on “all the counsel of God” (cf. Acts 20:27,28), they developed energies that were released in service. “The word of His grace” (Acts 20:32) not only builds up the Christian life, it nerves the saint for sanctified activity.

Thirdly, they were fired. The Holy Flame of Pentecost, like the fire of the Levitical altar, was never allowed to go out (Lev 6:12). Fed by holy devotion, the early Church continued to glow with sacred fire throughout the era of The Acts.
The chariot of God – “chariot of fire” – may still roll on if we let God have His way.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“If the Father deigns to touch with divine power the cold and pulseless heart of the buried acorn and to make it burst forth from its prison walls, will He leave neglected in the earth the soul of man made in the image of his Creator?”– William Jennings Bryan

“Criticism is something you can avoid by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing” – Anonymous

“It is much easier to be critical than to be correct” – Disraeli

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
THE INEVITABILITY OF ACCOUNTABILITY – Thomas Addington

“For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing. whether it is good or evil” – Ecclesiastes12:14

Although we often think otherwise, there is no secret sin. On the flip side, neither does any good deed go unnoticed. We may rejoice in the erroneous assumption that nobody knows about our sinful attitudes and actions, and we may bemoan the fact that so many of the good things we do seem to be overlooked by others. But as Solomon concludes at the end of Ecclesiastes, God will judge every hidden deed—whether it’s good or evil.

In essence, there’s a good-news/bad-news aspect to every action we take. If it’s a good action, God notices and remembers, and someday we will be commended for it. If it’s a bad action, attitude, or behaviour, He notices that, too, and someday, He will call us into account for it. As 2 Corinthians 5:10 says, “we [believers] must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.”

The typical work environment offers plenty of opportunities for us to take advantage of the system or to compromise our integrity and ethics. But when we’re misusing corporate funds or engaging in questionable behaviour while on a business trip, we need to remember that the sovereign, omnipresent eye of God is never shut. God does not abide by any privacy laws; He’s always watching us.
Fortunately, God doesn’t just see us when we do something wrong. He also notices when we make a right decision or do a good deed that goes unnoticed by everyone else. We may not get a promotion or a bonus for such acts, at least not in this lifetime. But that doesn’t matter when we’re living life for an audience of One. He sees, He recognizes, and He will be the One Who says, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”
