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 the LORD that gives life and also gives the inspiration in life so that you can be possessed with great prospects and motivation. There are three levels in life to be known and understood: the mediocre, the medium and the momentous. You were born and possessed to achieve the latter. Instead of settling for the lesser, in the LORD you can know the higher and the best and attain the same by His indwelling and partnership. So do not settle down with a wrong mind and heart set, but seek and know His impartation so that rise to be and do things that are most fulfilling. You can experience His dynamic today and be different and make a difference in the hours before you. He can and will galvanize you with His Presence, Promises and Providence. What more could you want!! All the best!!!

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“and hope doesn’t disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us” – Romans 5:8

Niagara Falls. The volumes of water that pass over both the American Falls and the Horseshoe Falls are absolutely astounding. Day and night, the water continues to pour over the edge of this escarpment crashing down on the rocks below. It simply never ends.

That is why I chose this photo to illustrate the promise that God continues to pour His love into our hearts by His Holy Spirit which He has given us. His love for us is a rushing river of His goodness towards us that never ends. While this truth is more real than everything else around us, it is easy to struggle to actually comprehend the greatness of God’s love for us. I often feel that words fail to adequately describe His love.

That is why we need the help of the Holy Spirit. In Ephesians 3, Paul prays that we would be rooted and grounded in love and that we would have power to grasp how big and wide and high and deep is His love for us in Jesus Christ. Just as we could never count how many gallons of water are rushing over Niagara Falls every second, we cannot measure the love that God is pouring into our hearts by any natural means.

The only way we can hope to fathom the eternal, everlasting, never ending love that God has for us is by the Holy Spirit which He has given us. Today, why don’t you ask God to give you power to grasp the vastness of His love for you? For it is through His very own Spirit that He actually pours His love into our hearts 24 hours a day, just like the raging waters of Niagara Falls.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
TWO MIGHTY MITES

Luke 21 :1-4
The mite was one of the smallest coins ever minted. lt took two to make a farthing (Mark 12:42). Yet this minute gift has brought in millions to church coffers as its story is related in multitudinous sermons and appeals. The “poor widow” became an example of what giving can be.

“Two mites”. God’s estimate of values is different -from ours. We count giving by quantity, He by quality; we reckon by amount, He by cost; we estimate by what is given, He by what is left.

“Two mites”. Rabbinical law decreed that nothing less than two mites should ever mark a Temple-offering. But what the church treasurer counted unworthy to grace the ledgers of the Holy Place, God has recorded in His Book. The anonymous widow has achieved eternal fame. We will seek her out in heaven to thank her.
“Two mites”. ln giving to God or man, it is the heart that counts. A willing offering is always acceptable to the Almighty, not that He needs our gifts, for “the cattle on a thousand hills are His”, but it is the love, the reverence and the thankful heart that He looks for and appreciates.

Giving to God does not depend on the amount for its value, it is the unseen purposeand love of heart and mind that God weighs and assesses.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved” – Bryan

“Destiny waits in the hand of God, not in the hands of statesmen” — T.S. Eliot

“Our deeds determine us, as much as we determine our deeds” – Elliot

“One’s destiny is determined not by what he possesses, but by what possesses him” — Unknown

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
TRIAL OR TEMPTATION? – Thomas Addington

“When tempted, no one should say “God is tempting me. . . . For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does be tempt anyone” – James 1:13

A trial can be a test of our character, a heavy burden intended to help us attain emotional and spiritual maturity. Maturity isn’t always an automatic result of trials, but it is the original goal.

A temptation, however, is a snare designed to trick us, capture us, and drag us down. A snare is evil and treacherous.

We must never confuse a temptation with a trial. Although we may encounter both in a typical day at work, they are not the same—nor do they have the same outcome.

What exactly is temptation? Temptation is the urge and enticement to become involved in a good thing in a bad way. For example, sleep is a good thing, and it is normal. Laziness is a bad thing, and it is sin. Eating is a good thing, and it is normal. Gluttony is a bad thing, and it is sin. Sex in marriage is a good thing, and it is normal. Adultery is a bad thing, and it is sin.

Temptation is not sin; surrender to temptation is. Temptation becomes dangerous and harmful when, like an air-traffic controller, we provide clearance for sin to land in our lives. It is when we give that OK from the control tower that the real trouble begins.

But we do have a choice: We can turn the sin away, shut off the runway lights, and cease all communication from the tower. When we deny sin the permission to land in our hearts, we wisely follow the avenue of escape that God always provides –(1 Corinthians 10:13).
