1st of January
The pains of childbirth have started. We are entering the last and most drastic times of the history of this world. The economic crisis has affected many and this is only a sign. Now is the time to look at Jesus and less to media and all what people are saying. We have to trust God. We cannot trust banks nor human resources. The Word of God is the same yesterday, today and for ever.
I do not believe that only the world will be shaken, but also the Church. That will prove which material the people have built their lives on. If one has built with silver and gold, the work will stand. We can read in 1.Cor.3:11-14 “For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward.”
We are to-day in a situation where many of the nations of the world own atombombs which can destroy countries and their inhabitants in a short time. We can see that violence is increasing. In Matt. 24.6-8 we read: “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
The persecution will also increase. We have really seen examples of that the last months in India. Many Christians have experienced terrible persecution. Churches and homes have been burnt down and many Christians have been either killed or totured for their faith in Jesus. We can read the ninth verse in Matt. 24: “Then they will deliver you to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. ”
This Is the dark side of the last days, but there is a bright side too and one is that many will get saved. I believe that we stand in the beginning of the greatest harvest of souls that we ever have seen. We read in Rom.8:18-19 “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.” When the pains of birth are starting, there will be great pains, but the result is a revelation of a baby. That will bring fantastic joy. Many spiritual babies will be born in these days.
I would like to share a prophetic message that I got at the airport of Abu Dhabi in the year of 2000. I was on my way back from Nepal and the Holy Spirit spoke to me. He said that the Islamic wall would fall and it would fall before the other religious walls would fall. When the Arabs start to get saved, it would happen fast. It would be like a bomb falling and the fire would be spreading rapidly. The Holy Spirit is like an atombomb, destroying the works of the devil. I also got another picture and that was of a game called “domino”. The fall of Islam would be like the first piece of all the “dominopieces”. When the first piece falls, all the others will follow. One year later I listened to a man of God who almost said the same thing. He said that the wall of Communism had fallen. Then will the fall of Islam comes, and then the fall of other religions like Hinduism. The prophetic message was confirmed.
I seriously believe that it will come a special time for the Muslim-world. Many Muslims will be saved as a result of the fall of Islam. I have heard many Muslims who can testify that they have seen Jesus in their dreams and in visions. At that point they did not know any Christians. Later they met a Christian who could lead them to take further steps on the Way. ( I could help you if you need suggestions for material to testify among the Muslims.)
In the year of 2002 I had another vision. I saw a mighty wind. It would blow over towns and villages, over countries and continents. It would reach there no one else would go. Nobody could stop it. The wind is one of the symbols of the Holy Spirit. These are the times we have ahead of us. I asked God if this would happen without any shedding of blood. He answered: “No.” I cried with a loud voice. Many would be killed, massacred and there would be wars. I would myself be a witness to this, but I and my household would be saved.
We do have a great revival ahead of us and this revival will reach the whole world and the Lord will need a lot of laborers for this harvest. Matt.9:38 writes: “Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” God will perform signs and wonders in the middle of wars and persecution and you and I should be part of that. We are entering exiting times. Fear not, but live close to Jesus. He is our Protector and our Fortress against the enemy. The blood of Jesus works to-day. Cover yourself with the Blood and live in the Shadow of the Almighty! (Ps.91:1)
This is written by my daughter Helena. She wanted to share her thoughts with more than me.
We have chosen to send this out at the beginning of a new year. It is a serious message, but you do not need to be a Christian in order to understand that we live in serious times. The news are full of frightening messages daily.
We Christians must not forget that the promises of God are the same. They are not dependant on circumstances. If the Word says that He will bless us in generations, He will bless us in generations. If the Word says that He will be with us till the end of the Days, He will be with us till the end of all Days. We must more than ever trust in the Word and not in what we see and hear. A lot of things that happen in the world is a result of the fact that people have neglected the Word of God and have lived their own way or walked on a satanic road.
I want to emphasize that we love Muslims and Hindus and all the other people in the world, but do not love the spirits that lead them astray. The war has to be won in the invisible world and that war is just as real as the visible one. We will all be given different tasks dependant on our callings and maturity. Ask the “Boss” to show you what you should do and what to pray for. It is a very important job that is done in the spiritual atmosphere. It is important to know of the different weapons and how to use them. The most used ones are: The Name of Jesus, The Blood of Jesus, praise and worship, the armor of God(the helmet of Salvation, the breastplate of righteousness,the shield of faith, the sword of the Spirit, the belt of truth and the shoes that are ready to bring the joy of the Gospel), prophetic dancing and singing in the Spirit. I also want to underline the same as Helena that we must live close to the Lord. We must often seek His presence. It is there where we will find peace and our strength.
Both Helena and I wish you all:
A VICTORIOUS 2009!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
