GIFT OF DISCERNMENT.

GIFT OF DISCERNMENT. This gift belongs to one of the nine gifts of The Spirit. We can read about the gifts of The Spirit in 1st Corinthians 12, but they are also mentioned in other letters in the Bible. I choose to write about this gift knowing that many find that this gift is difficult to have and many do not know how to use the gift. I myself have found it difficult and I have asked the Lord to remove this gift away from me, but I do not pray like that anymore. On the contrary, I pray that ... (read more)

THE JOY OF THE LORD IS OUR STRENGTH!

THE JOY OF THE LORD IS OUR STRENGTH! Nehemiah writes that in chapter 8, verse 10. Nehemiah was called by God to lead a group back to Jerusalem from Babylon. He was supposed to repair the wall around the city, but that lead to a lot of problems. He was called to be a watchman as well as a worker. I attended a prayer meeting some days ago. I live in Sweden and we usually pray for Sweden and the things going on in this country. The general morality of Sweden is low and it has been a total chaos ... (read more)

WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO IN THIS NEWLY STARTED YEAR?

WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO IN THIS NEWLY STARTED YEAR? Some of you will think that this is a stupid question. “I have a family and a job. I am also a member of a small church that needs voluntary work from every member. You should rather ask me what I shouldn’t do.” I do understand that there are certain every-day duties that all of us have to do, but many are living like a hamster, going around and around on the same wheel and their lives consist of good and bad routines. Who started the ... (read more)

WELCOME TO A NEW YEAR WITH JESUS IN THE CENTRE!

WELCOME TO A NEW YEAR WITH JESUS IN THE CENTRE! You might during the next days be reading prophesies describing the year to come. Some of them will describe the plans of God for 2019 and others will write about disaster and terrible happenings. You will also be reading about fantastic supernatural happenings that will be part of some Christian’s life. It is always exiting to start the new year by reading this kind of reading. I also read this kind of prophesies given by well-known prophets. I ... (read more)

WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR?

WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR? In many countries we are now celebrating the season we call Advent. It starts four weeks before Christmas. We are talking about the first Sunday of Advent, the second, the third and the fourth. People are lighting a candle for each Sunday in churches and in their homes. When we have fire on the fourth one, we know that we are very close to Christmas. It seems that we are waiting to celebrate something that happened over 2000 years ago. Christmas is a celebration of the ... (read more)

PRAYERS AND PRAYER-MEETINGS, PART 3

PRAYERS AND PRAYER-MEETINGS. Part 3 I promised last time that I should write about spiritual warfare this time. I have been writing about the intimate relationship with our Father in heaven and with Jesus, our Savior. I have written that we could go to God with our personal needs. When we get together at prayer meetings, we might praise the Lord, but also pray for the needs of our country, our families and for our church. We should agree on the prayer request and be in one accord. James 5:16 ... (read more)

PRAYERS AND PRAYER-MEETINGS, PART 2

PRAYERS AND PRAYER-MEETINGS. Part 2 When we pray alone, we have a personal relationship to God. We are first and foremost together with Him whom we call our Father. We are also together with Jesus, our Bridegroom, with whom we shall celebrate a wedding. Since we are children of God, we are allowed to come to Him as children, pouring out our heart to Him. We do not need to pretend to be different. Masks can fall off. When we come to the Lord with our petitions, it might be that we need personal ... (read more)

PRAYERS AND PRAYER-MEETINGS

PRAYERS AND PRAYER-MEETINGS. Part 1 I have been to many different prayer-meetings in different churches and groups throughout my life-time. A lot of them have been very good, but sometimes I return home and I cry over lack of leadership and a lot of confusion. That has caused division instead of oneness in the Spirit. I have been to other meetings with a strong leader and she or he is the only one allowed to pray. That is also wrong. To pray and to pray with others is not exactly the same. I ... (read more)

IT IS ALL INCLUSIVE

IT IS ALL INCLUSIVE.   I recently heard a story that is the reason for this head-line. A couple went abroad to celebrate their 30th anniversary. They had bought a trip with everything included. In the beginning they didn’t know what that really meant, but they understood more and more that everything was included and they took what they had paid for. They were wearing a token on their arms showing that they had the rights for “all inclusive”. They had never done anything like this ... (read more)

GOD LOVES TO SEE HIS CHILDREN HEALTHY.

GOD LOVES TO SEE HIS CHILDREN HEALTHY.   Some people think that they are sick as a punishment from God. I do not believe that. You can read Matthew 7. Jesus is wondering if a father would give his son a stone when he asks for bread or if he would give his son a snake when he asks for fish. That would only happen if the father was mentally sick. Don’t you think that the love of our heavenly Father is much greater? I think so. I believe that God is love and that He has love. We read in ... (read more)
