The Woman, part 7

15th of June Part 7. This will be a summary of the previous chapters. I started to make you aware of the fact that you are created by God. It is God who formed us and He was very satisfied with the result. He is still satisfied. He has never regretted that He created you and me as women. He thinks that we are beautiful and we are so different than the men. We are special. He has created us with different functions and with different tasks. What God is doing is always perfect. We have to stop ... (read more)

The Woman, part 6

1st of June Part 6 This time I have planned to introduce to you a few of the women presented in the Bible. The first one is Ruth. She actually has her own book so I do believe that God wants us to learn a few things from her. Ruth came from Moab. The people from Moab were considered to be heathens. They worshipped other gods. Ruth got married, but her husband died after ten years of marriage. Her brother-in-law also died. Ruth’s mother-in-law was Naomi. She was also a widow. She wanted to ... (read more)

The Woman, part 5

15th of May Part 5 A WOMAN OF GOD IS GOOD AND HAS GOODNESS. I am referring to the sixth fruit of the Spirit. (Gal.5:22) God Himself is good and that is why we can be good and do good. In the known psalm 23 we read that goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives. How often do we see that Goodness is running after us? Are you stopping long enough to receive it? It is not so difficult to do good to others when you yourself have been met with goodness. In Psalm 34:14 it says that ... (read more)

The Woman, part 4

1st of May Part 4 HOW IS A WOMAN OF GOD? I could have done this very simple by saying that everything written in the Bible is for a godly man and for a godly woman, but I have chosen to do it differently. We can start in Matt. 22:37-39. There we read: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This is the most important commandment and goes all the way back to the time when God spoke to Moses. I do believe that most of us have ... (read more)

The Woman, part 3

15th of April Part 3. THE WOMAN AS RECEIVER! God showed me a long time ago how He thought when He created and formed us as man and woman. He also showed me how the devil had come to pervert the roles. Today he goes even further and he tries to wipe our the roles. God created the man first. Physically he was created to take INITIATIVE in order to get children. If he is passive, there will be no intercourse, and no children. The man carries the seed of life and she is the receiver of it. A woman ... (read more)

The Woman, part 2

1st of April Part 2 It is always easier to see the problems when they are far away and it is not difficult to find solutions to the problems either. These solutions are often easy solutions. The longer I am in a country, the more I know, the more complicated are the problems and the more difficult it is to find a solution. Women movements in the West have been fighting for equal wages for the same kind of work. They have fought for the same opportunities to go to school and to get a work. They ... (read more)

The Woman, part 1

15th of March Part 1 It came as a shock when God started to talk to me about raising women in the Body of Christ in order for them to rise to another level. I had often thought of groups of women as feminists and was a little against pure womee groups and conferences. “BOTH MEN AND WOMEN HAVE TO STAND TOGETHER AS ONE,” I said. I still stand for that as a principle, but see that the reality is different. When I started to travel around India, I saw a strong suppression of women both ... (read more)

Our Identity, part 4

1st of March Part 4 This will the last part about identity, at least for this time. I closed last time by saying that THE TRUTH SHOULD BE OUR IDENTITY. When you identify with the truth, you will also live by it. In Rom.8:4 it says that we should walk by the Spirit. In order to walk by the Spirit, we have to know the Spirit. We also have to know what God has put in our “born again spirit”. If we identify with the flesh, we walk by the flesh. If we identify with our emotions, we walk ... (read more)

Our Identity, part 3

15th of February OUR IDENTITY Part 3 I have now written two parts where I have described a little about the factors that are important when we form our identity. I could write a little book about every factor. I will now write about us Christians. What are we identifying with and with Whom? I have recently written 8 chapters about the Holy Spirit and wrote about the works of the flesh and the fruits of the Spirit. This theme is important when we talk about our Christian identity. I have also ... (read more)

Our Identity, part 2

1st of February Part 2 I established in part one that culture plays a great role in forming our identity. I started to write about the importance of the family and will continue with that now. A small child is very tight to his parents. What they are saying will have an impact on the child for the rest of his life. The child needs to be confirmed all the time. This is necessary in order for the child to become secure. A child needs consistency. The goal is to make the child see himself through ... (read more)
