I have been travelling a lot, so I haven't been able to write for a while.
Near Hönö, Sweden
First I was in Gothenburg, Hönö, Aneby, Gothenburg, Sweden for 2,5 weeks praying, playing and preaching while God did His thing.
Then I came back by Denmark and stopped in Finland and left for Borgå, south Finland and then the UK where I spent 5 weeks, doing the same.
People were seet free and healed, some got baptized in bath tubs both in Sweden and the UK.
At the moment I am finishing a couple of books.
Between the lines.
Ben will be travelling internationally 2013 holding healing services etc. Many new books are soon to be published, also one in English. Some of Ben's books are now being translated to Spanish, English and soon also to Hindi.
Ben's Healing House International meetings will soon be held in Vasa, Finland again.
Also a couple of music CD's are under work.
Many people call themselves Christians for various reasons, don't let them fool you!
(Updated with the Obama video link)
President Obama "calls" himself a Christian probably for political reasons. I do hope the he will one day find the Lord, but he is deep into the occult, so it will not be easy. Obama is a spokesperson for the Interfaith movement (a sick mix "syncretism" of all religions. (By the way Christianity is NOT a religion...it is about friendship with Jesus). Interfaith is very popular now, as is contemplative prayer (mantra based TM meditation). Nobody will find God through the occult.
Even before I was a Christian...before I met God "in person", I knew the the occult was pure evil, so I stayed away from sects and everything that I knew was connected to Darkness. Since I didn't know Holy Spirit at the time (I didn't even know that He actually was a person and I didn't read the Bible in those days)... I had no idea the worldly entertainment also is connected to the evil one. So I watched movies, read worldly papers, books and listened to satanist bands like The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd etc. All of the above "programmed me" to think along their message lines, in their heavily marketed products. All this "worldly filth" held me prisoner for many years. Even as a Christian I matured pretty slowly, at least I think so. God did use me on occasions but not at all like now! The last ten years or so, I have really searched to get to get to know the Lord better, I even told Him to kick me where "the sun doth not shine"...and He did. What a loving God :-)
I want all people to find God and the bliss inherited in His friendship.
So now I try to warn people about problems that they have no knowledge of, things that will hinder God to work in their lives and basically give them a bad time. Most people (even Christians) are so severely brainwashed by media, that they no longer function as God has intended! Almost no churches function as God wishes...
When I talk about spiritual things with church leaders, most of them haven't got a clue what I am talking about, and I'm not even very smart... God often uses semi-retarded people :-)
Most pastors and church leaders have this weird idea, that it's their duty to teach Holy Spirit to calm down and obey them. How weird is that??? It is a typical trait of satan to turn everything around..."the damned Reverser".
I read the last words of a pastor who hopefully had joined the choir invisible: He claimed (as many do today), that God does not require anything from us because of Grace. The man didn't know anything about grace, even though he had been a preacher all his life...duh. God requires a great deal from all those who follow Christ, it's all in the Bible, anyone with half a brain can see that if he reads the scriptures! For instance what did Jesus COMMAND His followers (you and I) to do???
He commanded us to heal the sick, cast out evil spirits, tell everybody the Good News of His gift to mankind, He even told us to raise the dead, not to get divorced and remarry on other ground than infidelity (sleeping around). We are suppose to promise to be true to the one we marry, and stay hitched until the day we die. Just like Jesus will never leave us, we are also supposed to be faithful to the one we marry. God also requires that we don't become drunkards. And no stingy person can enter Heaven, that will rule out MANY Christians. We are not supposed to love the world, since God considers that to be idolatry... This is just a little pert of all that God requires, many think that it's asking too much. I find that attitude silly, really childish and egoistic to say the least.
Joy to the world.
What we get instead, as we dump our junk, is so precious. God's presence is wonderful, and we can all experience it, if we really want to. It does not come cheap though... And once we begin living for Jesus, many will turn their backs on us. Some will even call us crazy, some people think that I have lost my mind for believing in Jesus. They seem to think that Jesus is an imaginary friend, something I have picked up from some book. They can't seem to understand that I have met Him in person! I would never throw my life away on some "idea" or philosophy!!! Life is too precious for that.
Supernatural life, WOO HOOO!
Through Holy Spirit we get "connected" to the spiritual dimension, and receive supernatural lives!!! I kid you not, it is wonderful. I don't have time to list all miracles that I have seen as a Christian, they are simply too many, and they mostly happen on a daily basis. If I command a leg to grow in Jesus name, it will grow immediately! Only on some very rare occasion, it has refused to grow (max once or twice). People who have back pain often have one leg shorter than the other, it is also true for those who have gotten scoliosis from practicing Yoga for instance. The kundalini spirit often causes scoliosis when he grips the spine, and makes is snake-shaped.
Do evil spirits exist?
Sure they do, I often see them as I am "in the Spirit", it is perfectly normal. Some Christians don't believe in evil spirits, because they don't really know God! It is very common. That's another reason why very few Christian will see heaven!!! Only a few % will get in, because they never knew God. Many preachers, missionaries, popes, pastors, faith healers will never see God's kingdom, because they never really knew Him... Many church leaders do "their own thing", this can never please God, not even if they have millions of followers. You can NEVER impress God by "your own" works. We have to concentrate on what He wants us to do!!! This is VERY important! It is His will or the highway. We can't just do what we "feel" like doing, or what seems natural for us to do. God might have some totally different plan for us. Just because you are a gifted musician doesn't necessarily mean that you are supposed to pursue a professional occupation as a musician. God might want you to heal the sick instead or drive a cab, you can't know you calling before you get to know God!!! IT IS IMPOSSIBLE!
Many think about finances all the time, brainwashed by society they think they have to work first, then get to know God. Instead of obeying God. He tells us to FIRST look for His kingdom and THEN He will take care of the rest. And example: When I travel where God sends me, I never have to think about money. Normally I buy a one way ticket and just go. One time when I left the country I had 40 euros in my pocket, but I was not worried one bit. I just thought "this is interesting"... When I finally came home after a month or two, I'd had a wonderful time...
I NEVER charge anything for my services because I don't need to, God takes care of me. Besides Jesus tells us NOT to charge people for our services. If somebody tells you differently he is either a crook or mentally challenged.
Don't let the devil, tradition and religion fool you, stay away from the occult: Yoga, religions, martial arts and meditation, Uncle Benz
See you on Facebook (Ben Antell)!
PS. Check out the prayer at the bottom of the page if you want to get to know Lord Jesus right now!
If you would like to try Jesus for yourself, say this prayer from your heart, it will change your life! God loves you, just as He loves every man who walks this Earth!
Rom 10:9 because if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus [as] Lord, and shalt believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved:
"Heavenly Father, forgive me my sins. Jesus I believe that you are the only son of God and that you died in my place, please save me now, come into my heart, and take over my life. Amen".
If you seriously said the prayer, you are saved! For we are save by grace and nothing else, we can come as we are! Now thank Jesus for saving you.
The Bible tells us to work hard on our salvation, this does not mean that we are to run around doing good, but that we should obey Holy Spirit as He speaks to us! We should also keep the commandments of God and the commands of Jesus Christ, to preach the Gospel, heal the sick and cast out demons. We also have authority over death (in Jesus name), so we can wake people from the dead whenever Holy Spirit tells us to do so.
Welcome to the family! Check out god.TV on TV or the Internet, it is full of good spiritual guidance. xpmedia.com is very good too. Your life will change for the better!
(Naturally, not all preachers are good, just because they are on god.TV), use your brain as you watch, compare what they say, to see if it lines up with God's Word! Another very important thing: we should never criticize our sisters and brothers outside the church! If we feel that we have to correct somebody, it HAS to happen in church and not publicly. We should never launder our differences before the world, that is stupid according to Gods word!
There are some prosperity preachers whose messages are unsound.
God didn't intend for all of us to become filthy rich on Earth. Naturally, there might be some generous people on Earth, who may be blessed in this way, since God treats us all individually. But I don't believe for a second, that all Christians are meant to roll in cash...simply for our own pleasures. That would be pointless and silly.
I believe that we are supposed to help each other and be generous.
I don't believe that we should hoard our money in the bank, but to put it to good use. God will bless those who think of others, like the famous painter Van Gogh did. He gave his money etc. to the poor miners of Borinage, where he worked as an evangelist (between paintings). This is another fact, which is rarely (if ever) mentioned in art books due to our atheistic society.
Don't look down on rich people (or anybody else), God blesses whom He pleases.
Here's another side to prosperity: Job the incredibly rich man.
We read in the Old Testament how he was tested by the devil and lost everything. Because he was faithful to the Lord, everything was restored to him + he became filthy rich :-) Why? Because God blessed him.
Rom 10:13 for, Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Naturally, your life needs to change, if you've received Christ. We can't go on living in sin, like we did before we met God. But anyway, everything starts with the little prayer. It has worked for me and many of my friends. Let God take over, and don't fret, He will take care of you, trust the Lord!
You are now ready to receive Mr. Holy Spirit (if He hasn't already descended on you)! He is a person, sent by God to be your Helper. Spirit filled born again Christians can pray for you to receive Him. Your life will never be the same!
I call Him Mr. Holy Spirit sometimes, because most people don't seem to know that He is a person as well as Spirit.
Holy Spirit will give you a prayer language, so if you feel like there's something bubbling inside you, just open your mouth and speak whatever sounds Holy Spirit is giving you. The prayer language is called "tongues", it can be a Heavenly language or an earthly one, it all depends. I have many different ones, I've noticed that it changes a lot, from time to time. One Finnish girl that I prayed for received english as her prayer language, go figure.
Some people even claim that you can't pray or talk to Holy Spirit, I beg to differ. God the Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit are ONE, so you can pray to any one of the three.
But it's logical to pray to the Father in Jesus' name. When I pray for people, Holy Spirit and I have an ongoing dialogue during prayer. We speak to each other all day, but even more intensely during prayer, since He then directs me.
Mar 16:17 And these signs shall accompany them that believe: in my name shall they cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues;
Tts 3:5 not by works [done] in righteousness, which we did ourselves, but according to his mercy he saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of Holy Spirit,

I'm not trying to put anyone down with my Write, I'm just trying to convey what God has put on my heart I also feel that that life is too short, to just shut up and go with the flow, when people suffer under all kinds of bondage, and could in fact be set free in Christ.
If you find my write helpful, or disgusting in any way please let me know, you can drop me an e-mail. Remember to use a correct "subject" so that my spam turkey won't gobble it down.
