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 such refreshing and helpful.

A PROPHETIC WORD FOR YOU

Healing gift and grace belong to your LORD and it is good will and promise that you should experience this first-hand in your need and situation. You are the loving subject of His constant commitment and care. He would demonstrate His power and ability to manifest this healing virtue in your being today. His word of promise still holds good: “I AM the LORD that healeth you” – EX 14: 27. So the call of faith to trust Him to do it and a reaching out to Him to receive His healing power so that your present need will be met. There is no will or intention on His part to pass you by without intervening on your behalf. This is the day of good things, the day of deliverance! Hallelujah!

A GOLDEN PROMISE

”For both he who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one,
for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brothers” – Heb 2: 11

My brother is 3 1/2 years older than me. When we were growing up, he blazed the trail ahead of me in most everything in life… School, our parents, work, friends, even girls. Though we did go through many of the things that other siblings go through, my brother was always there to help guide me through life.

Throughout my school years, it was comforting to know that my big brother was always there to protect me from bullies and to help me transition from one grade to another. It is really great having a big brother!

In Romans 8, the Bible says that Jesus is the first born among many brothers and sisters (Romans 8:29). In today’s promise, the writer of Hebrews is telling us that Jesus Christ, the only begotten of the Father, is not ashamed to call us His family. What an amazing truth! Jesus Christ, the King of kings and the Lord of lords, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah… is our big brother!

He has gone before us in every way. The Bible says that He suffered every temptation common to man yet without sin. He is a faithful High Priest who understands all of our struggles. He took upon Himself our sin and He has shared His vast inheritance with us. …And He is not ashamed to be called our big brother!

My encouragement today is to take some time to reflect on the fact that God’s eternal plan was to bring you into His everlasting family so that He could be your Father and Jesus could be your big brother. What an amazing salvation we have in the Triune God… Father, Son & Holy Spirit! Hallelujah!

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
WHAT A MINISTRY!

James Moffatt translates Job 4:3,4 thus: “You . . . put strength into feeble souls; your words have kept men on their feet”. The words of Eliphas to Job give us an ideal of what inspired preaching can accomplish.

Ian Maclaren said, “The chief end of preaching is comfort. Never can I forget what a distinguished scholar, who used to sit in my church, once said to me: ‘Your best work in the pulpit has been to put heart into men for the coming week’.” The stormy winds of life can be strong to violent, but God-directed ministry can help people to stand, nay more, ever make progress in the pilgrim life when sorrow, stress and strife would tend to blow them off their feet.

When Isaiah began his second great period of ministry, he opened with the exhilarating words, “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God” (Isa 40:1). These words, set to noble music, and incorporated into Handel’s “Messiah”, echo this message of hope and consolation to God’s people.
Our Lord was Prime Minister of Good Cheer. His words were heart-warming and mind-reassuring – and still are. Read them, and find comfort.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“A man makes no noise over a good deed, but passes it on to another” -Aurelius

“Whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well” – Chesterfield

“Give me the ready hand rather than the ready tongue.” – Garibaldi

“The ” great commitment” is so much easier than the ordinary one- and can all too easily shut our hearts to the latter. But without the humility and warmth which you have to develop in your relations to the few with whom you are personally involved, you will never be able to do anything for the many” — Dag Hammarskjold

“Live among men as if God beheld you; speak to God as if men were listening” – Seneca

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
FADING WITH INFLUENCE – Thomas Addington

“For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way the rich man will fade away even while he goes about his business” – James 1:11

A young plant bursts through the soil in early spring. As the noonday sun and gentle evening rains feed it, it begins to grow. Stems lengthen, leaves multiply, and flowers begin to appear. Throughout the summer, the plant stands upright in beauty and grace. Then the chill of fall and the first hard freeze of winter bring its growing season to an end. It withers and dies.

We, too, are born with the promise and excitement of growing up and growing old. Like the plant, we grow tall and become beautiful. The beautiful season is not the same length for all of us, not do we all have the same garden presence. But for the most part, we all enjoy a season of full life. And then life, like a single plant, withers and draws to a close. .

Today, our lives are full of work demands, family responsibilities, and many other things that tend to keep us from becoming too reflective about our mortality. But one day we will wake up and ask, Where has life gone so fist? It seems just yesterday I was doing. . .

James encourages us to age with grace and beauty. That includes making sure we are enjoying life now. We must not be so attached to deadlines, demands, assignments, and obligations that our lives are reduced to something to be endured rather than to be enjoyed.

We also must be careful to spread positive influence before we enter the fall season of life. As we’re standing tall in the sunlight, we must spread influence.

Look around your workplace and ask yourself the penetrating question, Am I influencing my co-orkers in a positive, healthy manner?
