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)

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)

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)
