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.

AN IN-WORD FOR YOU

The promise made to Joshua millenniums ago still holds good today for you – “I will not fail you” – Joshua 1: 5. He has never had a failure on His hands because it is impossible for Him to be subject to such. You can be greatly encouraged in this as you note how He stood with and behind all His servants in the past and saw them succeed and do an immense and fine work. So the days, tasks and people may be different and difficult before you, know that the LORD will be alongside to input and see you accomplish major undertakings. As He was with Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Ruth, Esther, etc., so He will be by your side making certain that you deal with everyone and everything that comes across your pathway. He will cause you to have a good anmd great day, today!

A GOLDEN PROMISE

”Nevertheless, don’t rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven” – Luke 10: 20

In this Scripture passage, Jesus is telling His disciples not to rejoice because the demons submit to their authority, but rather rejoice because their names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. I believe the core of what Jesus is saying in this passage is simply this… relationship supercedes authority.

Though signs may follow us wherever we go on this side of heaven, the very reason for this demonstration of the authority that God has entrusted to us is because we belong to Him. The very fact that our names are written in heaven means that we will live with God Himself for all eternity and that is cause for lots of celebrating!

Though we may walk in the miraculous power of God, let us never forget the very essence of why God saved us. He didn’t save us to be good workers, He saved us to be His sons and daughters. In Matthew 7:22-24 Jesus warns there will be some people who have walked in miraculous signs and wonders but never knew Him. To ‘know’ Jesus is to be intimate with Him and that is the very reason why we were saved.

In John 17:3, Jesus prays to His Father these words… This is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and him whom you sent, Jesus Christ. (WEB) The very definition of eternal life is being intimate with both God the Father and God the Son.

So no matter what amazing works God has you do today, do not rejoice because of the works themselves, but because your name is written in the halls of heaven, where you will live with God forever!

HOW TO BECOME WISE
Rev. Bob Stevenson

How does a man become wise? The first step is to trust and reverence the Lord! Only fools refuse to be taught. Listen to your father and mother. What learn from them will stand you in good stead; it gain you many honours

Read: Proverbs 1: 7-9

The Central Reference Library in St. Peters’ Square, Manchester, England has a central circular glass dome a bit like St. Paul’s cathedral in London. Hand painted in gold leaf letters, around the blue circular frieze at the base of the dome are the following words “Wisdom is the principal thing, therefore get wisdom and with all thy getting get understanding.”
Here, right at the commencement of the book of Proverbs the writer begins a step-by-step outline of “How to become wise.”
The first step is to give number one priority to establishing a healthy respect for and an implicit trust in the God of heaven. Step two is to cultivate a teachable disposition irrespective of your liking or disliking of the advice being given. Above all, don’t be a fool and refuse to be taught either by your own or the experience others. Step three. Be sure to listen to what your mother and father have to say to you. They are probably the two best people in your life that have your best interest at heart, don’t neglect the advice they offer.

It sounds so simple doesn’t it? Three steps to become wise! But these could be the three most important steps you will ever take in your life, so be sure to start to take them today.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

Friendship is one of the sweetest joys of life. Many might have failed beneath the bitterness of their trial had they not found a friend – Spurgeon

By friendship you mean the greatest love, the greatest usefulness, the most open communication, the noblest sufferings, the severest truth, the heartiest counsel, and the greatest union of minds of which brave men and women are capable – Jeremy Taylor

Some friendships are made by nature, some by contract, some by interest, and some by souls. – Taylor

Constantly look for a new friend, a truly first-class person, one who has the courage to criticize, to demand your best self, a person who has different interests and different beliefs from yours, a friend for whom you can render a constructive service. Devote energy toward making such friends. Retain them, never let them go, and continue making new friends until you die -Terhune

In the progress of personality, first comes a declaration of independence, then recognition of interdependence – Van Dyke
