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

There are occasions that you need to consolidate your spiritual situation in and by the help of the LORD. Having brought you forward into greater faith and living there is the demand that you make sure that these become well established for such is the greater basis for receiving more and accomplish even greater things. The LORD is guiding you steadily forward so that you can move ahead with confidence and expectation. Looking back you can observe where He has led and provided and such is to be the guarantee that there is much more ahead as you go along with Him at His rate. His appointments will not turn out to be disappointments but the inspiration to the expectation and experience of a more opportune and boundless existence. So your life and service will turn out to be a great testimony to Him.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

”They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads” – Rev. 22:4

In the book of Genesis, the story begins with our God and Father creating the heavens and the earth and all that is in it. In the book of Revelation, the Bible ends with the promise that we will see God face to face and His name will be written on our foreheads. What an amazing hope that we all have to look forward to.

In the Old Testament, no man could see God and live. When we get to heaven, we will be able to look face to face into His loving eyes and have His name imprinted upon us. I pray that God will open the eyes of our hearts today so that by faith we will be able to look forward to that day when He will wipe all our tears away.

This is our destiny. This is where we are headed if we have received the free gift of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ’s life. We have nothing to fear. We have nothing to dread. Just an eternity of glorious bliss, gazing into the eyes of the One who loved us before the creation of the world. Hallelujah!

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
SUNSHINE IS ENERGY

Solar energy is becoming an increasing reality in commercial and domestic spheres. Solar panels transform light into energy.

This is no new thing. From the beginning of creation plant-life, by means of photo-synthesis, has turned light into life. The chlorophyll that resides in green vegetation turns the light of day into life-sustaining elements that feed and sustain plant life.

And here is an ecological miracle. In this process green vegetation absorbs carbon dioxide and exudes oxygen. We live by breathing in oxygen and breathing out carbon dioxide. What a wonderful balance – a God-arranged pattern of life. That is why we must preserve tropical rain-forests, and maintain our green zones.

The sun is our life. lt keeps our earth in orbit, it establishes and regulates our times and seasons, it orders our tides and weather. Its warmth sustains us, its light promotes growth, its actinic rays produce chemical changes. We could not exist without it.

And Jesus is “the Sun of Righteousness with healing in His wings (or rays)” (Mal 4:2). He is “the Light of the world (John 8:12) beaming blessings upon men. To those who accept His saving grace there dawns a new day. As old Zacharias said “the Dayspring from on high has visited us” (Luke 1:78). What a blessed experience to feel the warmth of His love, the radiance of His presence, the “health of His countenance”. To be in the orbit of His will is “life more abundant”.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“Evil is wrought by want of thought as well as want of heart” – Hood

“It is not more strange that there should be evil spirits than evil men- evil unembodied spirits than evil embodied spirits” — Samuel Johnson

“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

“When you choose the lesser of two evils, always remember that it is still an evil” -Max Lerner

“Evil as such is the only thing I am able to do without God” – Jacques Maritain

“Many have puzzled themselves about the origin of evil. I am content that there is evil, and that there is a way to escape from it, and with this I begin and end” –Newton

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
SELF-CENTERED PRAYING – Thomas Addington

“When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on pleasures.” James 4:3

It has been said that God responds to our prayers with three different answers: “Yes,” “N0,” and “You’ve got to be kidding.” He affirms some prayers with a yes. He says no to others. But then there are those prayers that cause Him to smile and say, “\Wh0m are you trying to fool?”

James makes the case that many times, although we utter words that sound like prayers, they actually are rooted in a self-cantered agenda. Rather than being directed to God, they have a selfish ambition at their core. If you want a clue about the motivation behind such prayers, examine the personal pronouns used in James 4:3. The word you is used no fewer than five times. Instead of being cantered on God, the prayers are all about us. ‘

The debaters among us would step back and quote Matthew 7:7: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Certainly that promise is available to followers of Christ, but it is not an iron-clad pledge that functions like a slot machine with God. We can’t just plug our prayers in to God and expect Him to respond automatically and immediately.

Rather, we must attune our hearts to the heart of God. But that car1 be difficult. Ours is a culture of sophisticated and well-developed role-playing. We are so used to plastering smiles on our faces when we are anything but happy inside. Our culture has discouraged authenticity and transparency. This has had a detrimental effect on the way we pray. We think we can put on a facade before we come to God; but we forget that He knows what we want before we ask. We forget that He knows our innermost thoughts before we even think them.

Next time you pray, remember that God already knows your heart. So don’t come to Him with a list of self-centred requests. Don’t put the spotlight on your- self. Just talk to Him as if He were your loving Father. Because He is.
