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

Because you belong to Him, through the great work of salvation and regeneration by His Spirit and Word, your Father is committed to being with and favouring you whilst you are on earth. Now that you have this close and unique accord, you can draw upon Himself and all that belongs to Him to enable you to live a very beautiful life and perform a dynamic service. There is no telling what He wants to do in and through you in order that you may achieve some praiseworthy goals and sense inward satisfaction in what are you are doing. Life and work are to be neither drab nor a drag but a delight and produce lasting qualities that will benefit you and His kingdom in the coming eternal ages. So have a very blessed day!!!

A GOLDEN PROMISE

”There remains therefore a Sabbath rest for the people of God. For he who has entered into his rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His – Hebrews 4: 9-10

One thing that marks the orphan world system that we live in is the absence of the ability to rest. Busy, busy, busy. There is so much to do in too little time to do it. Rushing from work to home, rushing from home to work. Rushing to do the groceries, driving the kids to sports, going to church, etc. Throw in the thousands of media messages that we all get bombarded with every day. Busy, busy, busy.

It is exhausting just thinking about it. God is calling each one of us into a deep Sabbath rest in the very core of our being. While on the outside this might appear like pure inactivity and therefore unproductive, I believe the very opposite is true. When we allow ourselves to come into a place in our hearts where we cease from our own works, we are demonstrating in a very practical way that we are relying on God to work on our behalf.

This very real form of trust moves the heart of our heavenly Dad in a way that nothing else can. As long as we try to do all the work ourselves, carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders, we will be trying to do the work in our own strength. When we come to a place where we can slow down in our hearts and quiet the busyness that resides in the depths of our soul, we will find the Prince of Peace waiting for us to join Him.

Sure work needs to get done, groceries need to get bought, kids need to be driven to their various activities. But I believe it is our Papa’s heart that we enter into a deep Sabbath rest in our hearts where we cease from all our own striving and join Him in His rest. May God give each one of us wisdom today to show us how we can labor to enter into that place of rest.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
CRACKED – BUT USEFUL

The most popular, and best known of all bells must be “BlG BEN”, the hour-bell of the clock of Westminster Houses of Parliament. “Sir Benjamin Hall, who had charge of the building project, addressed parliament in a rambling search for a name for the bell. A bored waggish member shouted out “Call it Big Ben, and have done with it!” The house rocked with laughter. The name stuck.

Soon after the bell was cast in 1858 it cracked, causing a shrill, unpleasant tone when it was struck. The crack was filled and smoothed down, leaving “Big Ben” with a distinct quality of sound that was unique. It’s chimes have become familiar the world over. None other could take its place in the affections of the British race.
You don’t have to be perfect to be useful. “But we have this treasure (that is, the joy and light of the Gospel) in earthen vessels” (2 Cor 4:7). God uses human-nature, with all its foibles, faults and frailty, to perfect his saving plans. He could have selected angels – in fact, He has done on special occasions – but has decided to employ men to reach men. How wise! Angels would scare us, but fellow- man, whose lives are changed by God, can woo us to the Lord. The very fact that they are of us is an effective starting point.

And when God wished to effect His Redemptive Plan, He sent His Son, “made of a woman” (Gal 4:4). He “became flesh and dwelt among us” – He is one of us, He became a Son of Man that we, by His grace and mercy, might become Sons of God.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“The defect of equality is that we only desire it with our superiors. -Henry Becque

“Equal rights for all, special privileges for none” – Jefferson

“The Lord so constituted everybody that no matter what color you are you require the same amount of food” – Will Rogers

“Let’s go hand in hand, not one before another” – Shakespeare

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
THE TONGUE: SMALL MUSCLE, BIG FORCE – Thomas Addington

“The tongue is a small part of the body but it makes great boasts” – James 3:5
“Nowhere in Scripture is there a more focused and magnified look at the tongue than in James 3. But although James frequently refers to the two-ounce muscle we know as the tongue, he’s not engaging in an anatomical discourse. Rather, his emphasis is on self-control in the area of our speech.

James makes it clear that one single word can carry a lifelong, ever-expanding impact. He uses three scenes from nature to illustrate this: a small bit in a large horse’s mouth, a small rudder anchored beneath a huge ship, and a small spark that ultimately inflames a whole forest. “When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal,” he writes. “Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. . . .

Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark” (James 33-5).
t is sobering and convicting to think that the words that roll off our tongues every clay carry so much weight and influence. With words, we can encourage or destroy. We can praise or criticize. We can edify or intimidate.

Before you head off to work each day, commit your speech to God. Ask God to help you tell the truth and not to shade your speech with lies or half-truths. Ask Him to help you not to speak harshly, critically, impatiently, or unkindly; not to spread rumours and gossip; and to avoid the crude, immoral, irreverent words and jokes that might slip from your mouth. Consider carefully the power you carry around in your mouth, and ask God to strengthen your self-control.
