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 not the purpose of your LORD that you should live in defeat but to experience continual victory. For this state to be, it is essential to possess the spiritual essentials that fortify the mind and spirit, strengthen the will and nerve the whole inward condition in a positive and heavenly manner. By being continually filled with His Holy Spirit and knowing the precepts and promises of God from His Word, you will be in situation where you can overcome all opposition and all negative and destructive thoughts and emotions. You will be made more than a match against any evil contending factor and force and prove to be a winner every time. Remember what Paul said: “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ” – 2 Cor 2: 14. Have a victorious day!!!

A GOLDEN PROMISE

My God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus” –Phil 4:19

Our God and Father has promised to meet our every need according to the vast riches in the glorious storehouse of heaven that is in Jesus Christ. In an orphan world system that makes people feel all alone and responsible to claw and scratch for everything they get, this is really good news!

Our God knows what we need before we need it and He delights to provide for us what we need…when we need it. Whether a felt need or a spiritual one, our heavenly Dad is a Father who provides for His kids. In this particular passage, Paul is writing to the Philippians and is thanking them for the gift that they sent to help further the work of the kingdom.

Paul is encouraging them that as they have been obedient to share what they have, God will continue to pour in heaven’s resources when they need it. While we may not have an ample bank account stored up on earth, we can rest in the fact that we have access to the true eternal riches that are stored up in heaven for us through the glorious riches in our elder brother, Jesus Christ.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
DO YOU EVER GET ANGRY?

“Be angry, and sin not,” counselled Paul (Eph 4:26), and in this terse advice stresses two points. First, it is not always a sin to be angry. Second, but anger, like fire, must be kept within limits.

William Barclay puts it thus: “Anger is one of God’s greatest gifts to men. But anger is like a strong medicine, which if it is used in the right way, can do infinite good, and which, if used in the wrong way, can do infinite harm. What then, is the rule for anger? When anger is for our own sake, it is always wrong. When anger is for the sake of others, it is often divine right”.

How our Lord, with blazing fury, drove out the corrupting merchandise of the Temple! And later, how he, with caustic words, excoriated the hypocritical leaders of the Jews! Paul could say, “who is offended, and I bum not”? (2 Cor 11:29). When his converts were stumbled in their Christian way, he ‘became all “hot and bothered” to help them regain their feet. And the epistles of 2 Peter and Jude show how mad these men of God felt at the inroads of false teachers.

Yes, my friend, it is not always sinful to be angry, in fact it is sinful not to be angry at the atrocities of evil men and the vicious antics of the devil. The world has been blessed by angry men and women who became all fired-up in good causes.
But be careful. Let your personal irritations be blotted out by twilight lest Satan use our overwrought emotions to perpetuate evil.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“Ten minutes spent in Christ’s society every day, aye, two minutes, if it were face to face and heart to heart, will make the whole life different.” -Drummond

“It is only in contemplative moments that life is truly vital” – Santayana

“When God intended to reveal any future events or high notions to His prophets, he then carried them either to the deserts or the seashore, that having so separated them from amidst the press of people and business, and the cares of the world, He might settle their mind in a quiet repose, and there make them fit for revelation” – Walton

“The mark of a saint is not perfection, but consecration. A saint is not a man without faults, but a man who has given himself without reserve to God” – Westcott

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
GREEN LIGHT, YELLOW LIGHT– Thomas Addington

“Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak” – James 1:19

The Jewish rabbinic literature says it this way: “Silence is a fence for wisdom.” The green go light is for listening. The yellow caution light is for speaking. Green light—listen. Yellow light-—-speak. *

Proverbs 13:3 says it this way: “He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin.” My (Steve’s) mother said it this way, “God gave you two ears and one mouth. Use them accordingly and proportionately.”

Quick to listen. Although James is referring to the way we receive instruction regarding truth, the phrase certainly has a much wider application. We all should be eager for learning. Would those who work next to you, over you, and under you say that you display a hearty appetite for instruction and learning? Would your listening skills/be a valuable quality on your resume? Would you say that you have gotten better or worse at listening during the last few months or years?

Slow to speak. This is a call for careful deliberation before we open our mouths and engage in dialogue. It’s difficult to talk and listen at the same time. We all need to practice keeping the right balance between the activities of the ears and the activities of the mouth.

Once a young man came to the great philosopher Socrates to be instructed in speech. From the moment the young man was introduced, he talked incessantly. When Socrates finally managed to get a word in edgewise, he said, “Young man, I will have to charge you a double fee.”.

“Why is that?” the bewildered student asked.

“I will have to teach you two sciences,” the philosopher replied. “First how to hold your tongue, then how to use it.”
Green light-—listen. Yellow light-—speak.
