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

You must know and learn to tap into the bountiful resources that the LORD has provided for you in Himself. All that you will ever need in life, for work and ministry, etc., is to be found in Him. He has said: ‘without Me you can nothing”. Without Him you are nothing and have nothing, but with Him you are someone that has everything. He opens Himself out to you out on all fronts so that He might open you out on all fronts, to cause the riches of life and heaven to flow in and through you at a constant but ever increasing rate. He will never be barren or bankrupt by His much giving because He retains His fullness and is able to share from that eternal state. Enter into your inheritance now and know what it is to live the abundant life today!

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.”- 1 John 1:7

Jesus is called the Light of the World. In Him is no darkness, only brilliant, glorious light. The good news of the gospel is that when we receive the free gift of God, which is the life of His own Son, we are completely cleansed from all unrighteousness and forgiven from all our sin. We have become children of the light because we are now joined completely into the holy life of Jesus. Romans 8:1 says because of this exchange, there is therefore now no condemnation for us.

Our adversary the devil is called the accuser of the brethren. His aim is to continually bring accusations against us that would somehow cause us to feel ashamed and hide from God. When you hear these accusing voices, declare the finished work of the blood of Jesus over your life, for it is the cleansing power of Jesus’ blood that keeps us walking in the light!

We have no need to hide in shame from God. Jesus Christ has secured our place in His Father’s heart and His blood has covered our past sins, our present sins and our future sins. You can rest in the finished work of Jesus Christ. When He cried it is finished! on the cross, He meant it.

Does this mean that we can go on living a sinful life? God forbid! However, we can rest assured that if we walk in the light as Jesus is in the light, His blood cleanses us from ALL sin.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
FACE TO FACE

Nothing can take the place of personal presence. Letters, cassettes, videos, even “virtual reality” fall short of that immediate contact. It brings more than the sound of voice, more the vision of form. There is a kind of aura of presence, when we are in one another’s company that no other media can minister.

So John felt. He writes to “the elect lady” (who was possibly Martha of Bethany) “l would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full” (2 John 12).
And so, visit your friends as much as is possible. Letters and phone-calls are a blessed substitute when we cannot meet face to face: but nothing equals the warm embrace of those we love.

James, in his usual down-to-earth manner, examples a special case for visiting: “to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction” (James 1:27). This is “pure religion”, this is practical Christianity, this is love in action.
And the word “visit” has a special meaning in the Bible. Take Naomi’s case. She “heard that the Lord had visited His people in giving them bread” (Ruth 1:6). However, we may not always present gifts, but we can minister comfort and sympathy “face to face”.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“To have faith in the crucified One means to permit oneself to be crucified with Him, to permit this judgement also to be passed against oneself” –Rudolph Bultmann

“If the way be rough with thorns and stones, may faith provide a balm to soothe your weary, bleeding feet and fill your soul with calm” – Carruth

“All the strength and force of man comes from his faith in things unseen. He who believes is strong; he who doubts is weak. Strong convictions precede great actions” – Clarke

“Faith is the daring of the soul to go farther than it can see” – Clarke

“Hold faithfulness and sincerity as first principles” – Confucius

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
PRAYING IN EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE – Thomas Addington

“Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. . . . the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective” – James 5:13, 16

We have two options when We’re faced with days of difficulty, distress, and trouble. We resort to complaining, doubting God, or talking behind His back (as if that were even possible); or we can pray.

No situation or circumstance in life is out of bounds when it comes to communication With God. No matter how bad the difficulty or how great the success, the correct response is to talk to Him about it. There are no exceptions.

When we’re in trouble, we should pray for deliverance (James 5:13). When we’re happy, we should offer prayers of praise (v. 13). When we’re sick, we should pray for healing (v. 14). When we sin, we should pray for forgiveness (v. 16).

Unfortunately, we sometimes forget to pray. It’s easy to hold all our troubles within and think we can get through them on our own. But that only turns us into bitter people who eventually blow up at the slightest provocation. It’s also easy to turn outward and dump all our problems on other people. But that can backfire, too. Our friends and co-workers may tire of hearing about all our difficulties, or they may give us bad advice about how to resolve them. Again, the only correct response is to turn upward and respond in prayer and praise.

How do you handle difficult days at work? Do you attempt to carry the burdens all by yourself, or do you bring them to Jesus and ask Him to carry you through?
