MOTHERS AND FATHERS ARE NEEDED IN THE BODY OF CHRIST, part 2

MOTHERS AND FATHERS ARE NEEDED IN THE BODY OF CHRIST. Part 2 Last time I wrote about the newly converted. I compared a newborn Christian with a newborn baby. I said that a newly saved person needs a lot of care and attention. I said that when we pray for revival, we are praying for a lot of new Christians. Are we ready to take care of them? When a person is saved, she or he receives the nature of God in their spirit. The Bible says that they are a new creation. The letter to the Philippians ... (read more)

MOTHERS AND FATHERS ARE NEEDED IN THE BODY OF CHRIST.

MOTHERS AND FATHERS ARE NEEDED IN THE BODY OF CHRIST. Part 1 There are countries where they give birth to too many children and in other countries to too few. In many Muslim countries they give birth to many children. I do not believe that the reason is lack of education about contraception. One of the reasons is that they want to rule over the world. In the Body of Christ we lack new-born babies as well as mothers and fathers. This is the real theme for today. We Christians are crying for ... (read more)

WHO IS YOUR LORD AND MASTER DURING 2020? Part 2

  WHO IS YOUR LORD AND MASTER DURING 2020? Part 2 I do not believe that Jesus is Lord in all areas of our lives. We would be perfect then and I do not believe that will happen before we are in Heaven. Our spirit is born again and we have received a new nature. 2.Corinthians 5:17 is saying that we are new creatures. The old has passed away, but we do have a soul and a body that can harbor wounds and even demons. We are also fighting our flesh that stands against our new- born spirit. Who is ... (read more)

WHO IS YOUR LORD AND MASTER DURING 2020?

WHO IS YOUR LORD AND MASTER DURING 2020? Part 1 Many of you will automatically answer Jesus. That’s fine, but I do not believe that everybody is honest. Jesus will have to share that place with many others and many other things. I do not believe that you quite understand what lordship really means. If Jesus is Lord, it is Jesus that makes the decisions. You have placed your own will under His then. You are then living in this prayer: “Lord, not my will, but Thine.” The Lord spoke to me at ...

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE 2020 TO BE FOR YOU?

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE 2020 TO BE FOR YOU?   I cannot decide that is some of you saying. You are partly right. There are certain things in this world that we have no control over. This world is under the dominion of the devil and that has been a fact since the fall of man. Jesus came to restore what the devil had destroyed. He opened a way for us straight to the Father. He carried our sins and sicknesses and won a victory over the devil. “No, you are lying now,” some of you might say. ... (read more)

STAND FAST IN THE LIBERTY BY WHICH CHRIST HAS MADE US FREE! Why do we celebrate Christmas? We are celebrating in memory of the fact that Jesus Christ was born. Christmas is circling around the little baby in the crib, angles, shepherds, the history about Joseph and Mary. We read about the three wise men with wonderful gifts. Jesus was the Son of God. The entire humanity was separated from a direct contact with God because of the sin of Adam and Eve. God had talked to the prophets, but the ... (read more)

CALM DOWN AND KNOW THAT I AM YOUR LORD!

CALM DOWN AND KNOW THAT I AM YOUR LORD!’   Yes, this is the beginning of a song that I sang many years ago. I use this song sometimes when I am in counselling. Many of those I talk to are stressed and some hyperventilate. They are so full of stress and fear. Others are so depressed that they sink down in apathy and depression. They are in a dark tunnel and they cannot see any way out of the tunnel. Some people feel that they are abandoned by God. They have become passive, but they ... (read more)

LIGHT IN THE DARK!

Here in Scandinavia we are in a season of darkness right now. In the far north there is no light at all and further south the days are very short. The few days with sunshine make everything seem brighter and lighter. It is like an injection of vitamins. I do not like to admit that the darkness affects me, but it does. I am fortunately so busy with positive activities that the outside world stays outside. The day that Adam and Eve committed sin, sin entered the world and the world came under the ... (read more)

I WANT TO HELP OTHERS. WHAT DO I NEED FOR DOING THAT?

I WANT TO HELP OTHERS. WHAT DO I NEED FOR DOING THAT? Part 2 What you need is: love, willingness and knowledge of the area where you want to help. To serve God is a lifestyle. Jesus had a full-time occupation and ministry. When one is helping others, it can be part of daily life activities. Others are volunteers and some are having a paid occupation either in the church or in the society. I, myself am educated as a social worker and I have helped many through my professional work. I was not ... (read more)

I WANT TO HELP OTHERS. WHAT DO I NEED FOR DOING THAT?

I WANT TO HELP OTHERS. WHAT DO I NEED FOR DOING THAT? Part 1 I am now starting to teach on a huge subject. I believe that many Christians need this teaching and I am writing for Christians. I am aware of the fact that there are many fine non-believers helping others in the world. I say a great thanks to all voluntaries. One can help others on many different levels and in many different ways. It varies from mopping the floor for my sick grandmother to delivering people on a deep level. All ... (read more)
