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

Realise that one of the main meanings of the title Jehovah for God is that He is the God of the NOW. The three tenses, past, present and future are all powerfully embodied in the Name and signifies He is ever-present and capable of doing what is in accord with His being and nature. He is always up-to-date and will be forever so. What he has been to others means He is to you today, in the now. He is with you to do similarly what He has performed in the past for those who have dared to believe and wait for Him. He is in partnership with you throughout life and desires to express His LORDSHIP in all your affairs so that you have an up-to-date testimony of His favour and power. Do not simply view Him from the past or project Him into the future but know that right now He is to prove Himself to you in every way, everyday; yes, TODAY.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“He increases the strength of him who has no might” – Isaiah 40:29

We live in an upside down kingdom where the first will be last and the last will be first. The greatest will be the least and the least will be greatest. In 1 Corinthians 1:26-29, the Apostle Paul says that God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the strong.

There is something in the heart of God that rushes to the defence of those who can’t defend themselves and to those who have no illusion of their own personal power. We see this at work in Paul’s own life when he was struggling with a ‘thorn in the flesh’ that just wouldn’t go away (2 Corinthians 12:6-8). This is when Jesus appeared to Paul and said that God’s strength is made perfect in his weakness.

So if you are feeling powerless today, be comforted in knowing that God gives power to the weak and those who are feeling exhausted. You are in a good place for the strength of God to be revealed in you and through you.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
MICROSCOPIC VISION

During his spare time, Antony Van Leeuwenhoek (1632- 1723) laboriously ground tiny lenses and mounted them to make crude microscopes. Squinting through these lenses, this 17″‘ century draper of Delft, Holland, became the first man to observe and report upon the activities of “animalcules” – the protozoa and bacteria of the microscopic world. He also confirmed by direct observation the circulation of the blood. His reports to London’s Royal Society represent a milestone in scientific development. So inform Parker Davis, the American drug company.

By this aid to natural vision the laws of light were so adjusted as to open up a new world, a process still going on.

There is a sense in which the Bible is a spiritual microscope whereby God shows us things beyond the scope of natural reason and philosophy to discern. It penetrates into the inner recesses of human nature, and is “a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Heb 4:12). When we diligently study it a new world of truth is opened up to us. Hidden truth is so magnified that our searching minds cannot but grasp the significance of God’s purposes, and our yearning hearts cannot but be moved and warmed by revelations of God’s love and mercy.

By this Holy Book we can learn of God and of human-nature to such a degree as gives us deeper understanding of life. So “read, mark and inwardly digest” its message.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“Fear is pain arising from the anticipation of evil.”- Aristotle

“Fear God and where you go men will think they walk in hallowed cathedrals” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

“…all too easily we confuse a fear of standing up for our own beliefs, a tendency to be more influenced by the convictions of others than by our own, or simply a lack of conviction- with the need that the strong and mature feel to give full weight to the arguments of the other side” – Dag Hammarskjold

“I fear God, and next to God I chiefly fear him who fears Him not” – Saadia Ben Joseph
