WHO AND WHAT DOES OTHERS SEE IN ME?

WHO AND WHAT DOES OTHERS SEE IN ME? Part 1 I have become very conscious about the fact that Jesus lives in me. He moved in the day that I received Him as my Lord and Savior. He gave me a totally new nature and I was borne again. I did not receive a new body nor a new soul, but my spirit got renewed and I can truly say that I am righteous and on my way to Heaven because of His blood. The apostle Paul says in two of his letters that we should walk by the Spirit. We should identify with God in us ... (read more)

A NEW AND EXCITING YEAR!

A NEW AND EXCITING YEAR! I all the time get the word exciting when it comes to next year. I do not believe that it will be an easy year, but I do believe that it will be very exciting. I will not prophesy about wars, earthquakes or other catastrophes. I do not have any revelation about where and when these things will happen around the world and I do not want us to be mainly focused on all the negative things happening everywhere. I do not believe that we should be ignorant and close our eyes ... (read more)

THANK YOU, DEAR JESUS.

THANK YOU, DEAR JESUS! I am writing so many Christmas letters to family and friends and letters and cards are sent to many countries in the world, but what about you Jesus? I do not think that I ever wrote to you Jesus, but it is high time to do so. I have only good things to thank you for and I must start by asking for forgiveness for the fact that I do not thank you enough. Forgive my ingratitude. Thank You Jesus for allowing me to be born into a family believing in you and in a country where ... (read more)

WHAT KIND OF EXPECTATIONS DO YOU HAVE?

WHAT KIND OF EXPECTATIONS DO YOU HAVE?   In many countries we are now entering a time of advent. It is a time of preparation for Christmas, a time of expectations. I will also mention some expectations in general. I believe that we often get what we expect. That goes for both the negative and the positive. Expectations are somehow connected with faith. Sometimes we make a mistake and we get very surprised and happy about what we get and other times we get very disappointed. You might say: ... (read more)

WOMAN, RISE UP!

WOMAN, RISE UP!   It is obvious that the Lord is in the process of restoring the Christian women and women in general. Some people are saying that Jesus can,t come back for His bride before the restoration of women. Quite a few congregations are dominated by men and the women are not allowed to come into their calling. I remember a time when I was preaching in India and I started jumping with only one leg. The Lord said that this was a symbol of those churches that primarily used men. The ... (read more)

DO NOT GET BURNT OUT!

DO NOT GET BURNT-OUT!   We use this expression when we have done too much and one is totally worn out. We might also say that somebody has hit the wall. This describes a situation when we really can’t do more. It’s enough. Does God want us to hit the wall? No, He has never given us yokes that are so heavy that we hit the wall. “But I have worked for a Christian organization or I have worked for my church”, some of you might say. That doesn’t convince me. You ... (read more)

HOW DO WE REACH THE GOAL?

HOW DO WE REACH THE GOAL?   What kind of goal? Many people are living without any specific purpose and may sing a song that is translated like this: “What happens, happens and I can’t say or do something about that. They have surrendered their lives to fate, but what is fate? It certainly isn’t God. They do not take responsibility over their own lives and do not know exactly where they are headed. Others live with a very strict program and there is no opening for ... (read more)

THE IMPORTANCE OF WORDS.

  THE IMPORTANCE OF WORDS.   I know that I have written quite a bit about that in different connections, but I write a separate theme about it now. This is a theme that The Holy Spirit often brings me back to. We can go back to the very beginning. The third verse in the Bible goes like this: “God said: Let there be light; and there was light.” In the sixth verse God said that it should be a firmament in the midst of the waters and that should divide the waters from the ...

NOTHING CAN SEPERATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD.

NOTHING CAN SEPERATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD.   The text is taken from Romans 8:35 and the rest of the chapter. “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of God which ...

DROP EVERYTHING.

DROP EVERYTHING.   I am sure that you are wondering what will be coming. Even I am not quite sure, but I do have an idea behind the title. I recently came in a situation where I had to drop all my plans. I all of a sudden got sick. There were many plans connected with the main plan. I was supposed to go both to Norway and Poland and I had several commitments in Norway. It was not too difficult to drop all the plans, but it led to the fact that the Lord started talking to me about the ... (read more)
