DO NOT WORRY!

  DO NOT WORRY.   1.Peter 5:7 says: “ Cast all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. “ We read in the previous verse that we should humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God in order for Him to exalt us in due time. God cares for us. He is like a good and loving Father, actually the best one we can have. I recommend you to read Matthew 6:25 and the rest of the chapter. It describes in detail a few areas that the Lord takes care of. We do not need to worry about what to eat ... (read more)

ENVY   We can start with Exodus the 20th chapter. In the 17th verse God said to Moses: “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s. We shouldn’t covet anything means that we are not allowed to envy anybody. I could have stopped here, but I will go into more details. The apostle Paul is writing both to Timothy and to the saints in ... (read more)

WHAT IS COMING OUT OF YOUR MOUTH?

WHAT IS COMING OUT OF YOUR MOUTH?   We read in Matthew 15:18 that we are not defiled by what we eat, but by what we say. I have recently been to another country and was asking if we could drink the water at the different places I was visiting. I didn’t want to get some germs in me. Are we just as careful about the germs coming out of your mouth? What are we spreading around us? What do you talk about when you are together with your family? I do hope that you are eating dinner together quite ... (read more)

DOES THE LORD HAVE LIMITATIONS? PART 2.

DOES THE LORD HAVE LIMITATIONS? Part 2 My answer to that was both a yes and a no. God has created heaven and earth and His abilities have no limits. He has created everything that has life and I am amazed over how He has thought of every little detail. He has created everything that grows on earth and every cell has its purpose and function. God’s creative abilities have no limits, but everything created is built on exact laws of nature and that has its limitations. Palm trees ought to be in ... (read more)

DOES THE LORD HAVE LIMITATIONS?

DOES THE LORD HAVE LIMITATIONS? Part 1 I will right away answer yes and no. I will use the next hours to explain what I mean by that. Yes, I do spend some hours on the writing in two languages. God is not a floating mass. No, we call Him Daddy or Father and Jesus and The Holy Spirit are also parts of The Deity. Our Father is seated in Heaven and Jesus is on His right side. The Holy Spirit is on the earth and He can be present at many places at the same time. He is not limited by time nor place. ... (read more)

SPRING-CLEANING.

SPRING-CLEANING.   I believe that you have to live in the Nordic countries to fully understand what I am writing about this time. Here we have four different seasons. March, April and May are considered to be the spring months. The trees are without any leaves and there are no flowers or other herbs growing during the winter. It is cold and the ground is often covered by snow. Everything is hidden underneath the ground, ready to spring forth when the sun is warming the ground. In what ... (read more)

THE RESSURRECTION

THE RESSURRECTION!   I closed the last chapter by saying that the tomb is empty and Jesus has overcome the power of death. “Jesus is risen, hurrah, hurrah, He is alive today.” This is a song that my children sang when they were small. My favorite Easter song starts like this: “Easter-morning quenches the grief, quenches the grief for ever.” What kind of grief? The sorrow of being separated from the intimate relationship with the Father because of sin. Adam and Eve caused this ... (read more)

EASTER 2019

EASTER 2019 Easter is celebrated at different times in different countries, but in Scandinavia where I live, the week of Easter starts the same day as this comes out. The six weeks before Easter are often called a time of fasting. Some people avoid eating certain food that is considered to be unnecessary. Others avoid eating for several days, a few for forty days. Those with a full fasting need to drink and take certain vitamins. I was at a place where they restrained from sugar over a period ... (read more)

WE DO NO WRESTLE AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES AND EVIL POWERS.

  WE DO NOT WRESTLE AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES AND EVIL POWERS.   This head-line is taken from Ephesians 6. Last time I was writing about discerning the spirits and I said that we should pray for our leaders to receive this gift. Why is that so necessary? Some pastors are very kind and they really want to be very loving. When new people come to their church with gifts of The Spirit, they allow them to use their gifts. Some pastors are actually impressed by ... (read more)

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)
