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

It is important for you to have good eyesight and vision if you are to live a very fulfilled life naturally. To know where you are, where you are going, what to do etc., is essential to a profitable and pleasurable existence. The same applies to your spiritual being. The LORD would open your spiritual eyes so that you may truly discern those things that require your utmost attention. As you behold what is before you, He will quicken your spiritual judgment so that you perfectly interpret what you must do, where you must go etc. You must not wander aimlessly but be absolutely certain of the path to take, and the ministry and gifts to be released through you that will make for your advancement and the growth of His kingdom. Enjoy and enter into what is to be unfolded by Him.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“Yahweh appeared of old to me, saying, Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn you” – Jer 31:3

What does it mean for God to love us with an everlasting love? My dear friend, Jack Winter, once told me that being loved with an everlasting love meant that there was never a time in all eternity when I wasn’t loved. I was loved before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:3-6), I was loved when I was knit together in my mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13), and I was loved on the day I was born (Psalm 71:6).

Jesus carried this revelation of His Father’s eternal love deep within His being. There was absolutely no question that He knew that His Father had always loved Him. In John 17:24, in His High Priestly prayer to His Father, He makes a very important declaration… Father, I desire that they also whom you have given me be with me where I am, that they may see my glory, which you have given me, for you loved me before the foundation of the world. (WEB) This was the most important thing on Jesus’ radar. That He was loved by the Father with an everlasting love.

The reality is that we have all been loved as much as Jesus has been loved by the Father (John 17:23), even from the very foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4-6). I believe the more that we become aware of how much love our Father lavishes on us (1 John 3:1), the more we will become convinced that nothing in all creation will ever separate us from that amazing love (Romans 8:38-39).

The truth is that our Father not only loves you, He IS loving you right now. It is my prayer that today, we all might be more aware of the intense, eternal, immeasurable love that God loves us with yesterday, today and forever!

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
ROSEMARY FOR REMEMBRANCE

“There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance,” said demented Ophelia, fair fiancée of Hamlet. But rosemary speaks more to me than Shakespeare’s lovelorn maiden.
An inclined cobble road in Folkestone leads down to the embarkation-point where troops in World War I took off for France. it is lined with “rosemarie for remembrance”, lestwe forget those who sacrificed their all to preserve our liberty and honour as a nation. My own father must have trod that way as he was among some of the first draughts sent to the continent. He came back: many didn’t. Shall they be forgotten? It is well that Remembrance Day still marks a nation’s gratitude for those who paid the price of our freedom. The two-minute silence speaks our thanks.

But there was a greater sacrifice some 2,000 years ago, when Jesus died on the Cross for our salvation. “Greater‘ because He had more to lose – He was God‘s beloved and only Son; “greater” because He had more to give, He laid own His pure and spotless life as “the Lamb of God” as a sacrifice for our sins; “greater” because the effect has been a way opened back to God for alienated and sinful mankind.

Before He suffered on the Tree our Lord, at the Last Supper, instituted the sacred ceremony we call “Holy Communion”. “Do this in remembrance of Me” He asked. And to the dawn of eternal day His faithful saints will ever remember Him in “The Breaking of Bread” as He wished.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“Death to the Christian is the funeral of all his sorrows and evils, and the resurrection of all his joys” – Aughey

“verything science has taught me- and continues to teach me- strengthens my belief in the community of our spiritual existence after death” — Werner Von Braun

“The fear of death is worse than death” – Burton

“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die” – Campbell

“This world is the land of the dying; the next is the land of the living” -Tryon Edwards

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
COMING UP SHORT – Thomas Addington

“If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him” -. James 1:5

When life’s little quizzes or comprehensive exams hit, we often reach into our own souls for strength, peace, and perspective, only to find ourselves a few answers short. We are like a young boy who has been saving his quarters for a new baseball glove. He sits down, turns his piggy bank upside down, and counts every coin—but comes up short. He approaches his father and says, “Dad, will you help me? I don’t have enough to buy a glove.”

God has established the ultimate open-door policy with us. If we are short on answers and long on questions, His office is the place to go. If we don’t know what to do, we can call on Him 24/7. If we are stranded at a fork in the road, we can ask for His guidance. W/hen we are overwhelmed by complex problems, we can seek His help. Navigating the waters of life successfully takes more than sheer knowledge; it also takes wisdom.

It’s important to understand how knowledge and wisdom differ. Knowledge includes the analytical ability to take things apart. Wisdom provides the ability to put things back together. Knowledge is data and information and facts and ideas. Wisdom is the ability to see through to the other side of the clouds that blur our earthly vision. Wisdom is God’s vantage point on our situation. Wisdom is seeing life through His eyes.
God looks ahead to the results of our decisions. He understands our motives. He grasps the consequences. He knows. He sees.

God is not a magic rock that we can rub or a genie in a bottle that we can manipulate or control. However, God never says to us, “Come back later. I’m busy.” Never will He give us the raised-eyebrow, over-the-eyeglasses judgmental stare of a disapproving father. Never will we hear Him say, “You messed up again.” When we have turned our self-sufficiency bank upside down, shaken out its contents, and still find that we’re a few coins short, we can simply approach our heavenly Father for help.
