WHAT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU DURING CHRISTMAS?   Christmas is celebrated at different times and in different ways depending on the country you live in. There might be great differences even within the same country. I do not believe that there is another time with more traditions than Christmas. For some people it is a time with a lot of stress and some people are not looking forward to this time. If one is alone, one might feel more alone than what one feels during everyday life. Loneliness ... (read more)


EXPECTATION   In many countries we are now entering a season of expectation. We call it Advent. We are waiting for something. We are not waiting for Jesus to come because He came 2022 years ago. I do not believe that His birthday is exactly on the 24 of December, but we celebrate that He came to earth and became the Savior of the world. We can anticipate His coming back. I love Christmas and Christmas celebration. I get happy when I see the lights and I can buy simple gifts to make ... (read more)


KRISTI KROPP.   Forrige gang skrev jeg at vår kropp er et tempel for Den Hellige Ånd. I dag vil jeg skrive om Kristi Kropp som vi alle pånytt- fødte kristne er en del av. Jeg vil begynne med å sitere de første versene fra Johannes 15: Jeg er det sanne vintre, og min Far er vinbonden. Hver grein på meg som ikke bærer frukt, tar han bort, og hver grein som bærer frukt, renser han, så den skal bære mer. Dere er alt rene på grunn av det ordet jeg har talt til dere. Bli i meg, så ...

THE BODY OF CHRIST.   Last time I wrote that our body is a temple for The Holy Spirit. Today I will write about the Body of Christ. All of us who are borne again belong to that body. I will start by quoting the first verses of John 15. “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not beat fruit He takes away, and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to ... (read more)


WE ARE A TEMPLE.   Now you are going too far, some of you will say. “ I am created as a human being”, you might say. I naturally cannot deny that, but the Bible says in first    Corinthians 6:19 that our body is a temple for The holy spirit living inside of us. We can continue to read: “You are not your own. You were bought at a price: therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” How often do we think of our body as a temple? A temple is created for ... (read more)


TO SEE AND TO BE SEEN!   We read in Matthew 6:22 that the eye is the lamp of the body. If your eye is good, it means that your whole body will be full of light. I know that some people have a sickness in their eyes and others are born blind and some become blind later in life. This has nothing to do with sins and I am so glad that Jesus loved to heal the blind while He was walking here on earth. Jesus is the same today and He will still make the blind to see. We might talk about seeing ... (read more)


  HOW DO YOU THINK BEFORE AN ELECTION?   I write this the day before we have election in Sweden, the country where I live. The different parties are putting their programs in my mail. On television they have debates between the different leaders of the different parties. When friends come together, we talk about the different issues. An election is supposed to be secret, but many talk about the party they vote for and they talk about their favorite issue. Yesterday I received a big ... (read more)


THE LION OF JUDAH!   I was recently in a wedding and a man came to me and said that I had a strong anointing of the Lion of Judah in me. That must mean that I have an anointing of warriors in and over me. I was very encouraged since this man had never seen me before. I knew that it was the prophetic gift working in him. Many are looking at Christians thinking that they can ravage them and I feel that we are partly persecuted and mocked in Sweden where I live today. We are refused to read ... (read more)


A LETTER TO JESUS! I have never written a letter to Jesus before, but I want to share my honest letter to Him saying thanks and at the same time you will know some parts about my life that I usually do not share with others. Dear Jesus! I finally take time to sit down and write You a letter. You know that I love You, but I do not say it so often. I know that You want to spend much more time with me, but I do not take enough time to be with You. I really want to ask for forgiveness for that. I ... (read more)


IS THE LORD PART OF YOUR EVERY-DAY LIFE?   In USA many people go to church every Sunday, many more than in Scandinavia, but do they live as Christians all the other days of the week? Quite a few think that they have a sure ticket to heaven if they go to church on Sundays. I have met people that praise the Lord on Sunday, but on Monday they might call a prostitute or cheat the government or private persons for money. Some of you might think that I exaggerate now, but unfortunately, I do ... (read more)
