It is time for the child to be delivered

15th of December We can go back to the story of Christmas and think of Mary, the mother of Jesus. She was visited by the angel Gabriel telling her that should have a child. The Holy Spirit should come over her and the power of the Highest should overshadow her and she would conceive a child and this child would be the Son of God. She should call the child Jesus. Her fiancé Joseph took care of her and the baby, but he did not have any physical contact with her before the baby was born. He was ... (read more)

What does Christmas mean to you?

1st of December I live in Sweden and it is quite dark here right now. The sun is only up for a few hours and we have had a lot of rain and the weather has been gloomy. One has already started with Christmas decorations and you can see stars and baskets, hearts and most of all: Santa Clauses. We have placed some small candles in the windows and that makes it quite cozy at this time of the year. There are many people disliking this time of the year since it is so dark. One is longing for snow ... (read more)

Are you at a crossroads or are you in a roundabout?

15th of November I think that the title is rather funny and I pray that the content would make some of you readers to think and maybe it would help those of you who are standing in a situation where you must make a decision. I sometimes meet people who are saying: “ Life is boring. Nothing happens.  There must be more to life than this.” This person might not see that he or she does a lot of meaningful things, but it could also be that the person lacks goals and visions and wonders around ...

Transformation and reformation

1st of November I might mention some of the things that I have written before, especially when it comes to the first church and what God is doing in these days. The words transformation and reformation are words that I hear everywhere I am in these days. It must be on God’s heart right now. A few weeks ago when I was home here in Sweden, I read a book written by a Danish fellow about the last reformation. I was recently travelling around in Italy, visiting different congregations and wherever ... (read more)

Do not hold anything good back, part 2

15th of October Norway went through a crisis for a little more than a year ago. One person caused the death of 77 people. This was an act of terror, the worst since the last world war. The person that did this had not expected the reactions that followed this tragedy. Everybody wanted to help, comfort and show concern in one way or the other. The King and his family became very visible and they were an example for everybody else. The Prime minister and other politicians were there for those ... (read more)

Do not hold anything good back

1st of October PART 1 I am just as curious as you are about the content of to-day’s message. God gave me the title, but the rest comes as I am writing. We just have to see what the Lord has for us to-day. It is always something good. We can start with 2.Cor.9:8. We read: “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have abundance for every good work.” The headline over this Scripture in my Bible is: “A happy giver.” ...

What is God doing in these days?

15th of September I can only write about what I sense in my spirit and what I see. You live in other places and you might see other things than I do, but I do believe that He does similar things all over the world. Some of you might react to the headline and you might say: “I see so many tragedies and so much of the devil’s doing and I really can’t see what God is doing.” That is your problem. I am quite sure that we live in the end-times. I do not know when Jesus is coming back and I ... (read more)

Speak to the mountain!

1st of September I am coming from a very mountainous country. I love mountains and I think they are very beautiful. I have also had the possibility to see fantastic mountains in other parts of the world. I have indeed no desire to get rid of them. I am thanking God who has given us all the beauty of nature, including the mountains. I really do not think that God has meant that we should speak to the natural mountains. I feel that they represent something big and majestic. Some of them are so ... (read more)

Back to everyday life

15th of August Welcome back from your vacation. I do live in Sweden for the time being where most people take their time off in June, July and August.  If you live in other parts of the world, you might have vacation at a different time. I know that in India they have time off from schools when it is either too hot or too cold. I am actually not writing about vacations now, but what is happening when it is over and one is back to daily routines. In Scandinavia we have had a huge amount of ... (read more)

The Lord wants to restore the Church

1st of July I was in a difficult situation some days ago and I was in need of some practical help. In the middle of my difficulties, the Lord started to talk to me about the Church, those who are called the children of God and have received Jesus as their Lord and Savior. He said that He wanted the last congregation, the one that is there when Jesus comes for His bride, to be like the first church, but even stronger. We have to look closely at the first one then and see what is typical for the ... (read more)
