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

One of the secrets and joys in life is create and cultivate healthy, spiritual relationships with others in the LORD. Not only will you be an enormous blessing and gift to others, they in turn will become great friends and confidants that will build your life more effective in and for the LORD. As you pursue this goal .the LORD will aid by causing the right folks to come across your path and you must sense and know that He desires the forming of a quality friendship in Him that will bear much fruit amongst other good saints. Do not miss out on this vital factor because it is by this means that Christ’s Church is advanced and blessed .

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“Put on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devi” – Ephesians 6:11

In Ephesians 6, Paul the Apostle exhorts the church at Ephesus to put on the full armour of God in order to be able to stand against the tricks of the enemy. It is interesting to note that the armor does not belong to us, but it belongs to God. It is His armor.

He has given us His helmut of salvation to guard our mind and give us peace. He has given us His breastplate of righteousness to protect our heart. He has given us His belt of truth so that we would know the truth and the truth would set us free. He has prepared our feet with shoes of peace so we can proclaim the good news wherever we go. He has given us His shield of faith so that when we lift it up, we quench all of the firey arrows from the enemy.

And last but not least, He has given us an offensive weapon, the sword of the Spirit, the very Word of God so we can advance the kingdom. Our God and Father has given us everything we need to live a godly life through Jesus Christ our Lord. We stand in His armor, His power, His protection… not our own. So having done all to stand in the power of God’s might, continue to stand today.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
“WE SEE JESUS…..”

Heb 2:9

But it is how we see Him that matters.

Some see Him as just a MYTH, a product of someone’s imagination, a “cunningly devised fable”. But what genius could conceive such a character’?

Others say He was a mere MAN, a product of evolution, perfect but human. But those that knew Him best know Him as the unique Son of God.

Others concede Him to be a great MORALIST, but come short of regarding Him as divine.

Then there are those who describe Him as a MARTYR, a witness unto death of the principles He stood for: a saintly man in a sinful world.

But the Bible declares Him to be a MEDIATOR (1 Tim 2:5) who was at the same time God and man. His incarnation enabled Him to be what Job called for, “a daysman” who, because He was both human and divine could “lay his hand upon both” (Job 9:33).
Because Jesus Christ is God He can represent both sides of the human/divine dilemma. By the sacrifice of Himself He satisfied God’s justice and purchased mercy and forgiveness for all who trust Him. So to see Jesus is salvation.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“Teaching a child how to talk-and then how to keep quiet.” -Anonymous

“here are two educations. One should teach us how to make a living and the other how to live” – James Adams

“The whole object of education is to develop the mind. The mind should be a thing that works” – Anderson

“Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not”.

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
FAITH WITHOUT WORKS – Thomas Addington

“What good is it, my brothers, a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? – James 2:14

When the Bible speaks of faith, what exactly does it mean? The word faith ould mean a body of belief or an adherence to a creed, or it could mean a warm personal trust toward God.

In James, the latter definition applies. That said, there’s no doubt that figuring out the connection between belief and behaviour has been a long and spirited debate. Sincere believers have been talking about this issue for thousands of years. Entire denominations have been formed and split as a result of these discussions.

James asks two questions as he introduces his opinion on this issue. First, he asks, What profit is there for someone who says he has faith but no good deeds to back up his plan to know God? Or, put another way, W/rat good are good works? To drive home his point, James provides a compelling example: “Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, ‘Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,’ but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?” (James 2:15-16).

But James also wants to know something else: Can good works save me? Can a person present a long list of good deeds to God as the basis for an eternal relationship with Him? Will good conduct, benevolence, and philanthropy be enough to satisfy the demands of God and define a person’s relationship to Him?

The apostle Paul steps in with the answer to that question—a hearty no. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-—-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8—9).

Have you been relying on your “good works” as a basis for your eternal relationship with God? If so, confess to Him right now that you would like to receive His gift of salvation, based not on your Works, but on Jesus’ once-for-all, completed sacrifice (Romans 6:23; Hebrews 10:10).
