Peace,

Happy New Year!!!

Why don't you try God this year?

What have you got to lose? I'm sure that you have nothing to lose, because I've been there myself. .. My life used to suck more than a Hoover, until I met God. Make this year YOUR year!

What did the "world" have to give me? Not much, if I'm going to be honest. The "world" is false, and so are people. When the price is right, anybody will sell you down the river. That's just the way people are, don't you agree?

God is the only one who has actually shown me true love during my life time.

I know I've said this before but...sure people say "I love you", but those are only WORDS, if there is no "action" behind the words, what are the words worth? NOTHING! Anybody can say "I love you", but very few will actually "do" something for the ones, they "claim" to love.

Jam 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

God is totally different though, He gives without expecting to receive anything in return.

That's why I love the Lord, because He loved me first. I know that He loves you too, just ask Him to come into your heart, say the prayer below! It has worked for many of my new found friends, and I'm sure that it will work for you!

After I met God, He gave me a very interesting life. Naturally I'm still on the journey, I've never been more happy, except for the first years when I got to know Him, way back in 1975... Life today is just as exciting as ever, I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings :-)

Try God today, you won't regret it, if you are on the level!

 

Whatever you do, don't let the devil get you, Uncle Ben

If you would like to try Jesus for yourself, say this prayer from your heart, it will change your life!

Heavenly Father, forgive me my sins. Jesus I believe that you are the only son of God, please save me, come into my heart, and take over my life. Amen.

If you 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. Welcome to the family! Check out god.tv on TV or the Internet, it is full of good spiritual guidance. Your life will change for the better!

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!

Tts 3:5 he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,

I'd like to wish everybody a really Christy Christmas!

A gift from Sweden...

No "Happy Holidays" for me!

It's Lord Jesus' Birthday today, never mind if the date isn't exactly right, it's the thought that counts.

I just have to tell you the following, even if it's another "darkish" story.

I just read about a man who took his life on TV... what a bummer. I guess the devil wants this kind of shows to air now, so that people will be fooled into believing that death is just like falling asleep...zzz...

The poor guy who took his life, was fooled by a clinic in Switzerland to do so.

The dude could have been saved, and even healed, if he had looked for God instead. I see people getting healed all the time, in the churches where I'm active! I really do! And it's such a crying shame that most people, never even try God, to see if He is real.

Eph 2:2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.

Anyway, the guy Craig who took his own life, is now in Hell suffering even more.

Now he knows that he just made the biggest mistake in his life. There is no reversing what he has done, death is the final whatnot, from which there is no U-turn possible.

Rev 20:13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had done.

After his stay in Hell, he will be transported to the Lake of Fire, for his second death...

Rev 20:14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.

Rev 20:15 If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Hbr 4:5 And again in the passage above he says, "They shall never enter my rest."

Hebrews 4:6 It still remains that some will enter that rest, and those who formerly had the gospel preached to them did not go in, because of their disobedience.

I already know God a tad through Christ, so I can't possibly worry about anything.

Death comes, when it comes. If it's painful, it's a shame, but it's only the body dying, so who cares? When you've gotta go you've gotta go. I already see glimpses of the coming life, so I can never doubt God, not even for a second. I'm free!

When I told Jesus to come into my life, He added my name to the Book of Life :-)

Get your name in there, before it's too late!

 

Whatever you do, don't let the devil get you, Uncle Ben

If you would like to try Jesus for yourself, say this prayer from your heart, it will change your life!

Heavenly Father, forgive me my sins. Jesus I believe that you are the only son of God, please save me, come into my heart, and take over my life. Amen.

Some walk around with "GOD HATES..." signs.

That is really sick, because God loves EVERYBODY on this planet!

1John 4:8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

To walk around saying that God hates certain people is to "take His Holy name in vain". Some believe that God was talking about swearing, as He said this in the Bible, but that's not what it means, even though cursing is wrong as well.

Photo © Fred Skymberg

The only thing God hates is sin, because satan is the root of all evil. Even though God hates satan and sin, He still loves evil men, not because they are evil, but because they are human beings.

Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

1 Th 5:22 Avoid every kind of evil.

Anyone can get saved!

God will forgive anyone that comes to Him, with a sorrowful heart, and asks for forgiveness. He will forgive You, if you ask Him too. Even if you are a cannibal or a mass murderer, He is mighty to forgive.

It makes no difference if you are a BIG crook or a small one, forgiveness is there for you! Just ask...

1 Cr 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Peace,

I was just reminded of how cheap talk really is.

"He's got a BIG mouth" © Steve Reinthal

Most people will never lift a finger, to help their friends in practical need. They say "I love you", but those are only words. If we don't put our words into action, our "love" becomes worthless...like crap.

So who are we gonna help today, in a practical way???

Some do give money, instead of physical help. Lazy people often go that route. Naturally, money can be a great help sometimes, but to "always" pull out your wad instead of lending a hand...

Some say "I love you", when they feel good, on other days they don't even say hello...

This is sadly a common occurrence. I have talked with many who suffer, by being treated this way. It sadly happens all the time, even in church :_(

I guess most people are too preoccupied with their own self, to notice those around them that suffer, or are in need.

A pat on the back is far from help.

ZZZ © Steve Reinthal

This is what God says about the topic "love":

1 John 3:18 My little children, we should not love just in word or speech; but in deed and in truth.

So what does this mean?

A friend of mine went out into the cold and bought some medicine for a sick child, when the mother couldn't get around much. He even paid for the medicine himself, because the mom ran a tight ship.

This kind of help is what God is talking about. We need to get off our blessed assurance and go help people.

Fix a tire for somebody, give them a car. Go get stuff in the freezing cold, if they need help. Drive their wives to the store to get food, if they haven't got a car. Give somebody a ride to the drugstore. Buy somebody food, if they are broke...deliver it home to them, if they have no way of picking it up.

And don't expect anything in return! Just do it, because God wants you too.

Get the general idea?

PS. Many people aren't even greatful (especially not in the long run), but don't let that get to you! Just do what you've gotta do, God sees you baby :-)

Peace,

I wrote a song this morning:

Bodega bay

I used to dance like Fred Astair
My life was different and I had hair

I would dance, and I would sway
and dream of the hills
@ Bodega Bay

As I sit alone and dream
my life blown to smithereens
fractal memories of times gone by
I know it's not yet time to die

Since I met God
my life turned round
and I have a peace
I've come undone

My heart is yearning for the Lord
to fill me up more and more

the Holy Spirit is my friend
my teacher and my flowing pen

but people here are blind to see
God's love, God's truth, God's loyalty

I'd like to sing on many strings
but people shriek at Holy things
they turn a blind and evil eye
they want to buy another lie

they know not Grace
they cannot see
how Christ died on Calvary

The price He paid
and paved the way
is all too great
to waste away

I love You Lord
I need Your fire
I want to do
Your heart's desire

I bless the land of Israel
I bless the sands of Jerusalem

Son of David, King of Kings
please come back
and spread Your wings

Mount of Olives, take your stand
waiting for the Son of Man.

Peace,

I met an elderly man the other day, who told me that the Lord had healed him, as I prayed for him a couple of weeks ago.

I thought it was nice of him to let me know. I don't often hang around and talk to everybody after the church meetings, because there are so many that need intercessory prayer.

I guess they will soon start calling me a false prophet :-) If they aren't already doing it. People often seem eager to hop on that wagon, as soon as somebody starts to bear spiritual fruit.

God knows I'm already target of malicious slander, but I don't care :-)

I just don't...

I recommend that you start praying for people too, if you are a Christian. It's a whole lotta fun to see Father at work, in peoples lives.

You can pray for people just as well as anybody else, after all it's the Holy Spirit who is doing the work. He only wants to use our bodies, if we are willing to walk on water...so to speak.

Gotta get back to my recordings..later dudes!

Peace,

A man can be swallowed by a whale!

Collage © Benjamin Antell

Some doubt the story of Jonah, who was swallowed by a big fish in the Bible. I have written about a man who was swallowed by a big fish earlier, on my write. I didn't know his proper name though.

Now as I read the book Unlocking THE BIBLE by David Pawson (www.collins.co.uk), 9.99 pounds sterling. 1343 pages.

I found the story again. The guys name was James Bartley. The incident happened off the Falkland Islands. Bartley and two other men were washed over board, but only Bartley was presumed dead, since he was lost at sea.

According to the unusual newspaper story, Bartley was found inside a whale, and lay in a coma for a few days. He then woke up and went on to live a normal life. His skin was yellow from the digestive juices of the whale, on the areas of his body where he had no clothing...

If you haven't read Pawsons book, you should!

It is very interesting. He even mentions acrostics.

Naturally you need some time on your hands to read his book. Most people are fooled into believing, that they don't have the time to read books. This is not true! Even John Lennon (the Beatles) sang about "running everywhere at such a speed, 'till they find, there's no need".

What's the rush?

I certainly found that out, after the finnish doctors almost took my life (in their folly).

I had to stay at home for almost 5 years without any income of any sort, no help from nobody. How I made it I don't really know, it was a major "mountain" in my life. I was very successful (by worldly standards), until I got ill, so it was a major downfall for me. My house started falling apart, my cars got smaller and more rusty. At one time I only had a bicycle, then somebody stole it, and I had to walk a lot :-)

I don't think I would have survived without God by my side. I really don't. I'm slowly getting better now, but it's still a rough ride sometimes.

Anyway, when I stopped focusing on myself too much, things started to change for the better. I can never get healed completely physically (unless God heals me), and the Vasa doctors can't help me, since they are the ones who wrecked me partly through their incompetence in the first place.

I can't tell you what I do, except that I try hard to follow God's will, every day of my life. A "part" of what I do, is that I'm into intercessory prayer. I pray with people, and try to help them find God, His will, and so on. It's rewarding to see the transformation that God does in peoples lives. I do this in the afternoons or in the evenings, when I'm in better shape.

Some find it weird that I also pray for the sick, since I'm not well myself. I just do what God wants me to do. Som do get healed, others not. God does what He does. I'm just his puppet, and I'm lovin' it :-)

I believe completely in the Bible.

There are different interpretations though, so we can't take everything 100% literally, without checking the Hebrew text carefully. Many important meanings are lost in translation, some purposely others by mistake.

For instance: "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household."

This does not simply mean "believe". In the Hebrew text "believe" in this case implies, that you have to change your lifestyle as proof that you actually believe!

Fishy art © Benjamin Antell

We can't go on living the way we did, before we received Christ. There has to be a transformation in our lives. We have to daily look for God's will in our lives. We have to keep the dialogue going on a daily basis.

How can we do this?

After we are saved, we can receive the Holy Spirit (He is a person!).

The "changes" in our life come through Him. If we listen carefully, we will notice that many "thoughts" come directly from Him. Stuff that we thought were our own ideas, are many times from the Holy Spirit, and if we start acting on them, in faith, we will see many wonderful things happen.

Naturally I'm talking about stuff that lines up with God's Word. Far from "all" thoughts are from the Lord :-)

An example: When I'm at a church meeting, the Holy Spirit will make me look at a certain person, and then He will urge me to go pray for him/her. If I think to myself, "nah, that just my own mind playing tricks on me", the "urge" will become stronger, until it's almost impossible "not" to go and pray.

That's one of the ways, how the Holy Spirit works in my life.
