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

Re-call and remember that you are now related as a child of God to One who is everywhere, knows everything and can perform the extraordinary at anytime. Being a son of God of your heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, places you in a special and heavily loaded state. Because you are truly loved, in an infinite manner, there is nothing He will not do for your good and blessedness. It is imperative that your faith is a living dynamic in Him for He purposes to enrich your life and situations on a daily basis as you maintain an accord with Him. This is altogether possible by His Word and the Holy Spirit. They would create and cultivate a wholesome confidence in Him so that it paves the way for untold manifestations of His goodness. Sop today look heaven-ward and God-ward because choice things are to be your lot from such sources.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

”Save your people, and bless your inheritance. Be their shepherd also, and bear them up forever” – Psalm 28:9

In this Bible verse, David is crying out for God to save His people, bless His inheritance, feed them and lift them up forever. In the NIV and NLT versions, he cries out for God to be their shepherd and carry them forever. We know that David was a man after God’s own heart.

As a boy, David learned a thing or two about the heart of a shepherd. In this Scripture passage, David is acknowledging that God is the ultimate Shepherd who has promised to feed His people and carry them in His arms forever!

In Isaiah 40:11, there is an amazing picture of God as a loving shepherd… 11 He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young. (NIV Bible)

In Psalm 23, David takes time to describe the many benefits of being shepherded by the living God. Whatever challenges you are facing in your life today, be comforted in knowing that God has promised to shepherd you, bless you, feed you and carry you forever!

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
HAVE A GOOD SING

Wherever the Spirit of God outflows there is “thanksgiving and the voice of melody” (lsa 51 :3). This fact is stressed by Paul, he describes what follows when believers are “filled with the Spirit” (Eph 5:18-20). The initial effect is “speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord”.

But such inspired song is varied, “psalms” (ie 0ld Testament scripture put to music), “hymns” (ie compositions of spirit-filled believers), “spiritual songs” (ie inspired impromptu utterances under divine anointing). They are also deeply emotional, heart-felt and heart-meant. They are congregational, a joint-worship in fellowship with other believers, often accompanied with instruments. They are edifying – “teaching and admonishing one another” (Col 3:16), and are an inspired and inspiring form of vocal worship.

John Wesley gives sound advice on the public enjoyment of joint-praise “Beware of singing as if you were half dead or half asleep. But sing modestly; do not bawl as if to be heard above or distinct from the rest of the congregation. Sing in time. Do not run before nor stay behind. Take care not to sing too slow. This drawling way naturally steals on all who are lazy; and it is high time to drive it out from among us, and sing all our tunes just as quick as we did at first. Amen!” So urges the Apostle of

So then, have a good sing. It not only fills the lungs and expands the mind it also can prove a holy exercise, an act of devotion to God, and a means of enjoying communal praise and fellowship.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“The best way out of a difficulty is through it” – Anonymous

“The three things most difficult are – to keep a secret, to forget an injury, and to make good use of leisure” – Chilo

“Every noble acquisition is attended with its risks; he who fears to encounter the one must not expect to obtain the other” – Metastasio

“Settle one difficulty and you keep a hundred others away” – Unknown

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

“Everyone should be . . . slow to become angry. . . . get rid of all moral filth” – James 1:19, 21

A yellow traffic light is a warning: Caution, slow down. Here, James instructs us to drive slowly into anger. Don’t be a quick trigger or easily angered, he says.
What makes you mad? What causes you to be short on patience and long on temper? People who don’t follow through with commitments? Circumstances that seem to create chaos and unpredictability? Losing control? Gossip? A boss who steals your good idea and never gives you the credit?

Anger might be a positive thing in some instances, but James clearly is guiding men and women of faith to be cautious of the dark side effects of anger.
So many followers of Jesus in today’s culture look and act angry. Although they talk a language of salvation and forgiveness, they project an image of resentment and anger. Their faces and eyes reveal the anger in their hearts.
The word James uses for anger implies more than a passing irritation or displeasure. It refers to a strong and persistent feeling of indignation and active anger. It is an uncontrollable animosity that begins to build deep inside a person. .

Yellow light—be slow to anger.
Red light——stop.

In some areas of life, it’s not enough to just slow down. We need to stop. Take moral uncleanness: for example. That’s an area we must get rid of completely. We need to throw it away, to put a stop to it immediately. Slowing down just isn’t enough.
James advises followers of Jesus to put off bad behaviour. The word picture is one of people stripping off garments. It is used elsewhere in Scripture to refer to divesting oneself of certain undesired qualities or deeds (Romans 13:12; Ephesians 4:22; Colossians 3:8; 1 Peter 2:1). God is never satisfied with partial purity, partial goodness, or partial righteousness. It starts with the word no.
Yellow light on anger. Red light on moral filth.
