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 main things you have to do to know a fruitful and blessed relationship with the LORD is to learn to wait on and for Him. You will discover that He is never in a hurry neither does He have to sweat it out over anything.. As you wait on Him you will find He can and will put you in the frame of mind and spirit that all is being worked out perfectly in faultless timing for your good and interest, even to intricate and intimate detail. He knows the best and right time and always has the resources to meet any given circumstance. He has no emergency stations because He is never in dilemma or difficulty. So learn the art of waiting on Him and discover with countless others that waiting for Him is the best procedure to adopt.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and he will go out from there no more. I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God, and my own new name” – Rev 3: 12

The Bible says that life is but a vapour. The span of a person’s life is but a twinkle of the eye in the perspective of all eternity. That is why it is so important for us to have an eternal mindset rather than a temporal one. In 2 Corinthians 4:18, the NIV Bible says … So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. (NIV)

When the pressures of life are too much. When the worries of an uncertain future cloud our thought life. When we are discouraged with the circumstances around us. No matter what situation you find yourself in today, take a moment, and think about eternity. In today’s Scripture, Jesus Himself, promises that He is going to make us as pillars in the temple of His God forever and write on each one of us a new name!

When all around us begins to shake, be encouraged that God is giving us a kingdom that cannot be shaken. One day, all those who belong to Jesus will stand firm forever in the city of our God, the New Jerusalem!

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford

CHRIST IS RISEN

Why confine our thoughts of the resurrection of Jesus to Easter? “NOW is Christ risen from the dead”, wrote Paul (1 Cor 15:20) and this “now” is an eternal now fixed in the Chronicles of Heaven and not confined to the almanac of earth. He is risen!

Dr Billy Graham in his book WORLD AFLAME (pg 133) relates the following: ‘When I was in Russia, I heard a story about a Russian village. After the Bolshevik revolution, the local Communist leader had been sent to tell the people the virtues of Communism, and to take their minds away from religion which Karl Marx called ‘the opium of the people”.

After the Communist had harangued them for a long time, he said to the local Christian pastor rather contemptuously, “I will give you five minutes to reply”. The pastor replied, “I do not need five minutes, only five seconds”. He came to the platform and gave the Easter greeting “The Lord is risen!” As one man the villagers thundered back, “He is risen indeed!””

And that is the answer. What no political system, philosophical concept or earthly power can do, Jesus can. He is alive today to meet our needs, forgive our sins, reconcile to God, teach us to love our neighbour. Above all, because He is alive He is able to give us power to accomplish these things – because He lives we too can live the life that pleases Him.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“Eternity is not something that begins after you are dead. It is going on all the time. We are in it now” – Gilman

“Every natural longing has its natural satisfaction. If we thirst, God has created liquids to gratify thirst. If we are susceptible of attachment, there are beings to gratify the love. If we thirst for life and love eternal, it is likely that there are an eternal life and an eternal love to satisfy that craving” -Robertson

“Learn to hold loosely all that is not eternal” – Royden

“That only is worth my having which I can have forever. That only is worth my grasping which death cannot tear out of my hand” Spurgeon

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
THE WISE AND OTHERWISE (PART TWO) – Thomas Addington

“Who is wise and understanding among you” – James 3:13

Wisdom is a rich biblical word. One of its earliest references in Scripture is built around the personality and life of Solomon. We usually remember Solomon as the man with a thousand wives. But he also was an author, diplomat, engineer, financier, king, philanthropist, philosopher, poet, theologian, and writer of songs (and those are just a few highlights from his résumé).

Second Chronicles tells us that Solomon had one of the most unique opportunities that any human could ever have. God allowed him to ask for anything he wanted—-and committed to providing it. And what did Solomon do? He asked for wisdom and knowledge so he could lead the p

The wisdom Solomon asked for wasn’t theoretical. It wasn’t simply textbook knowledge, intellectual horsepower, or even a high IQ. It wasn’t persuasion, logic, or rhetoric. What Solomon needed was practical insight into his life and into the lives of people who were within his circle and sphere of responsibility. We’re not talking about a small team here. It is estimated that Solomon managed 160,000 people when he was overseeing the construction of the great Temple at Mount Moriah.

Solomon wanted to lead this large group of people effectively, so he asked God for wisdom. Why? He understood that true wisdom is a gift we receive from the Lord, not a capability we develop.
We all should follow Solomon’s example in praying for the gift of wisdom. Parents should pray that their kids become wise. Employers should pray that they will be wise and that their employees will receive wisdom.

We may not have to manage 160,000 people every day, but, like Solomon, we do have people continually around us who require our leadership.

Consequently, we also have a great need for wisdom. Here’s an assignment. Get out a piece of paper and Write the words spouse, parents, kids, boss, co-workers, and friends down the left side of the page. On the right side, write,

What must I do to demonstrate wisdom?
Then, prayerfully fill it out.
