Peace,

Some Christians who are not born again regard Mary, the Theotokos, as a "spiritual mother". The Virgin Mary has many titles in Catholicism, like Queen of Heaven and Star of the Sea, familiar names in Eastern traditions.

It is sad how eager some "religious" (not Christian) people are to churn out idols of all sorts. Mary deserves our respect, but nothing more. She is no more holy than anybody else. I bet she is sad to know that people worship her!

God (I Am) tells us clearly to worship only Him.

When we do meet Him in person through Jesus Christ, we can't deny that it is so. Everyone who is born again knows this, but the "wise" of the world have no clue.

I've said it over and over, faith has nothing to do with our intellect.

You can be the most intelligent man on Earth and yet never find God, because He can't be found intellectually. If you however say the silly little prayer further down on this page...if you say it and mean it you WILL find God!

God wants us to become like children, therein lies a deep secret.

Matthew 18:2-6
2 He called a little child and had him stand among them. 3 And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5" And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. 6 But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

 

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

PS. Here's a simple prayer for you, in case you aren't used to praying, and you want Eternal life...it REALLY is this simple!!!

Dear Lord Jesus,

Come into my heart. Forgive me of my sin. Set me free. Jesus, thank You that You died for me. I believe that God raised You from the dead. Fill me with the Holy Spirit, the peace of God, and the joy of the Lord. Help me to forgive those who have hurt me! Give me a passion to reach the lost, a hunger for the things of God, and a holy boldness to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I'm saved. I'm born-again. I'm forgiven and I'm on my way to Heaven because I have Jesus in my heart.

Thank You Jesus!

If you said the prayer from your heart, Jesus has saved you! Look for an alive church, so that you have fellowship, nobody makes it on their own (I tried).

To those who don't know the Lord Jesus, King of Kings.

The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are ONE. Nobody understands it, but it doesn't matter, that's just the way it is. Jesus is the only door to God. The Holy Spirit is our helper, who guides us on Earth, as we pray to God in Jesus name for guidance.

When Jesus died for our sins, we became His heirs. So we stand to inherit everything from Jesus. Through Him we inherit he Kingdom of God. One for all and all for one, sound familiar?

---

about---the devil and his helpers.

...satan is not omnipresent, so he can't be everywhere at once. This must be a major bummer to him, since he has to rely on all sorts of demons (not all of them are that bright).

Demons and evil spirits (fallen angels) of all kinds, can make us do all sorts of things that we don't really want to do. Mostly they will entice us to do things that God doesn't want us to do, like going to fortune tellers, magicians off all sorts, to read horoscopes, have sex outside the marriage, and everything that has to do with the occult is from the devil, even healing by crystals etc. satan can heal people also, and he does so when is serves his purpose. To be healed by the evil one is a curse.

New age religions have nothing to do with God.

They draw their powers from the darkness. Some evil spirits call themselves good spirits, I've even heard of evil spirits calling themselves the Holy Spirit. They will say just about anything in hopes of ruining our lives.

I never listen to the evil spirits as they start to talk sometimes before I throw them out in Jesus name. I remember one saying in a trebly voice (like a Shell commercial) "we are powerful"...I just told him to shut up in Jesus name and leave, now! And just like my Mazda Sport they whoomed it out of there.

Some evil spirits work through professed satan worshipers like, Marilyn Manson, Kiss, John 5, Sammy Davis Jr. Metallica and others. That's why I don't listen to their music, because I know that it is Anti Christ, against God.

The members of these bands that I mentioned, will burn in Hell with their master satan, like rubbish on Judgement day, unless they receive Christ of course. Jesus is ready to reveal Himself and to save them at any given time, if they turn to Him. Isn't that an amazing love?

I love God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, they mean everything to me.

Never before have I met so much compassion in my life. I owe God my life, if He hadn't answered my prayers and revealed himself to me, I'd be dead like a door nail today.

Peace,

Don't move to India in case you don't want to go to jail (if you are a Christian).

Photo © Fred Skymberg

Imagine that they actually put you in jail for believing in Jesus. Naturally India is not the only country doing this. Their new laws make it perfectly legal though. What a shameful legislation for a country, it really puts them smack dab in the dark ages.

Hindu's have over 330 million gods.

These are of course evil spirits (fallen angels and demons)...but you can't really understand this untill you have met the Holy Spirit. We who have met the Holy Spirt through Jesus Christ, know this to be the truth. Anyone can know God, if you receive Christ first, since He says that He is the only door to God. I can testify that this is true, because I have met the Trinity myself in person, I kid you not!

Millions of Hindus want to leave, and have left their old religion since meeting Jesus Christ.

They prefer a "personal relationship" with Christ, to that of of all the religious mumbo jumbo of their old religion. Who can blame them?

They have been living in fear of the spirits most of their lives, trying to please all kinds of "Hindu gods" (evil spirits).

Now they have been set free from their bondage, anybody who has received Christ knows how they feel. There is nothing more wonderful in this world, than to get to know Jesus personally, I can testify to this.

Peace,

I'm a work in progress.

Photo © Fred Skymberg

I'm not ready and I know I will never be. When I fall off the ladder, join the choir Invisible or kick the bucket, I will still be a work in progress. I just hope that I'm fairly mature when it happens. These things actually help us in the next life according to the Bible!

I sometimes shudder when I realize what an idiot I still can be at times.

At the same time I'm glad that God uses idiots like me, the weaker we are the easier it is for God to use us, it would seem. When we are weak, He is strong in us. God likes to flex His muscles now and then.

I used to want to prove I was right all the time :-(

Now it's enough for me to once say what I think in a matter, if people don't believe me fine, I've said it and after that I just let go. Life is easier that way, and if somebody doesn't want to listen, then it's not my problem anymore.

I keep telling people about the only door to God (Jesus Christ). That they can be set free from all the problems and diseases in the world, simply by surrendering to Him. Those who believe me, receive life and health, those who don't deserve the pain and suffering they are in, since it's their own choice.

We all get to choose which road to walk.

We can't really blame anyone else for our own mistakes.

Sure there are evil men and women all over the place who lure us into this and that, but we are all responsible for our own choices. It's no good sitting there pointing at some dork who messed up or life. We have to get on with it, forgive and forget, no matter how grim the circumstances. If we don't forgive, the bastards that hurt us win! Since they still control our anger indirectly.

I know I keep repeating myself often when I write...but so did Jesus.

Sometimes you have to repeat yourself in important issues. I try not to do it face to face with people because that would make me a bore, it's a tad different when you write, since not all who read my writes come back for more :-)

Due to the growing number of inquisitive people, I'll keep on writing, at least until God tells me to stop. If He does, you will never hear a squeak from me again :-)

It is very important to obey...more important than sacrifice!

Some people do good deeds, because they think it will surely please God... That is not always the case! Obedience is more important than all the deeds in the world!

1 Samuel 15:22 But Samuel replied: "Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the LORD ?
To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.

It's better to make sure that we do God's will than run around doing good deeds in our own might.

Free as a Bird.

When I met God I felt free as a bird. All guilt was washed away in a second, it was a wonderful feeling. My life changed drastically, I'm now living in a totally different zone. My old life has nothing to do with my new life, it feels almost like coming from an old black and white TV set and emigrating to HD vision, only in 3D or something. I see 2 dimensions instead of one, like I did before I was a Christian.

I see stuff that I never noticed before.

That's what happens when you receive the Holy Spirit. Like I've said before anybody can receive Him through Christ. My old life seems almost like a cave man's life... Man I was blind, like a bat, but even without the sonar. Life was boring too, in the end nothing was interesting anymore.

Now "I've seen the light", a worn out phrase but true.

I can hardly wait to go out and tell people about Christ, He has so much to give. Religion is rubbish, that has nothing to do with Christ, nothing at all. I'm talking about life.

When I have speaks with Jesus I don't have to wear any special clothes or do any silly ritual, I just say what is on my mind, often I pray in tounges. It's interesting to pray in tounges, especially when different languages can pop up all of a sudden. Languages I sometimes recognize, I understand some of what I'm saying sometimes. All of it is important though.

There's a lot I can't explain since it happens in the spiritual realm, I just know I'm doing the right thing. It's as clear as swimming if you fall into the sea... You just know you have to swim to make it.

Try God, you won't regret it!

Peace,

God healed my fingers!

Ben (Holy Roller) at the TV studio at Frank Mangs Centre, Närpes, last saturday.

I sent a prayer request to http://www.revival.com/www/r.aspx a few weeks back because my fingers were in bad shape and I could not play the guitar at all anymore. Now I've been on 8 or 9 gigs with my friend Pontus, we're on a mission from God :-)

You can listen to the track "I'm Happy" mp3 on pontusjback's homepage, just click X

I wrote the track after finding the church in Kvevlax (Kvevlax Missionskyrka), it made me so very happy. Then we recorded it because I was so happy that God had healed me. Thanks to all who prayed for me.

Peace,

People often think about what they would change in their lives, if they got another go at it.

Photo © Fred Skymberg

That's just what God offers us through Jesus Christ, another chance. I had an uncle who couldn't accept that it really was that easy, but it is. My uncle disappeared at sea, so nobody really knows what happened to him.

You can never know when it's your time, that's why it's so important that we don't let another day go by without choosing. Because we all have to choose, just like Bob Dylan sang in "You gotta serve somebody", it may be the devil or it may be the Lord, but you know you gotta serve somebody.

(There are those who say "I wouldn't change a thing about my life", I think that is a terribly immature response. We sin every day, I guess some people don't even notice their own flaws...)

I made my final choice, after meeting Christ :-)

Photo © Fred Skymberg

I just had to have a supernatural experience of some kind, a touch. I just didn't know how to live without a personal relationship with God. Lucky for me He really reached down from Heaven and touched me. That is something I can never forget as long as I live. That's why I could never leave the Lord or deny Him.

He died for my sins, and now it's my turn to do what I can to spread the Good News.

If I'm rejected, I'm rejected. At least I said what God wanted me to, come rain or shine. I can't force anyone to believe in God, but if you follow what I share from God's word, you will find God, this is a promise.

The devil and this world can only offer material things.

There is so much more "out there", than meets the eye. I don't care for bling, all I want is to grow spiritually so that I can become a menace to the devil and all his jazz. I want to crush everything he stands for, because he is a liar and a thief. He's a destroyer of men's souls, he is a murderer and a coward. The devil is very afraid of Jesus, because he know what will happen in the end, it will be curtains for satan.

For the first time in my life, I feel really happy. I was very happy when I first met God, but I never really had a mentor, so I grew fairly slowly in some areas. I feel like God did some kind of override operation in my life about 3 years ago, and gave me more understanding somehow. So now I feel better equipped to stand my ground in the Lord.

God sent me an angel that was with me for a while, and empowered me somehow.

I was somewhat healed in my spirit and my life has not been the same since. I just hope to get to know the Lord even better, so I know when to shut up, when to pray, how to pray and when to speak. In other words I long to become more effective.

Here is a song that I wrote after I found Kvevlax Missionskyrka (church).

Peace,

There was a guy on a blog yesterday who was truly blue-eyed.

He claimed that Eastern religions were more peaceful, more mature and older than Christianity... It's amazing how people talk about topics, they have no clue about. Where do they take their facts from? Disneyland???

It's hard to tell how old some Easter religions are, nobody knows due to a lack of documentation. Naturally most religions want theirs to be the oldest :-)

Photo © Fred Skymberg

It would not surprise me if all religions were about the same age, because satan tries to copy everything that the Lord does. Due to satans disposition he is a bit like King Midas in reverse,so everything he touches turns to crap.

When I, simply told the following people that I was a follower of Christ, the response was:

Bahai (141 years old sect). I've met some people from the sect, even "high up" people, burning "hate" was the response I got when I told them I was a follower of Christ...(to be honest one guy did not show any signs of hostile aggression). Where is the love???

Hare Krishna (unknown perhaps 2500 BC?), the response here was also burning "hate". Where is the love???

I read the Bhagvad Gita once (Hindu), it was all about evil spirits basically. It was a very shallow book. I must confess that I didn't read the whole book, because it was booring to me. The evil spirits are a wate of time.

Talked to a Muslim, he screamed that he hated Israel and would fight them anytime. The Quran was written 600 years after the Bible...that's why Jesus and other people from the Bible are mentioned in it. although for the wrong reasons.

One of the devil's strongest weapons is to keep us occupied by nonsense, like his religions.

Sure they can have some humanistic values in them sometimes, but that's like finding a berry in a pile of manure. Why bother to pick it up, when there are fresh ones on the bush?

I know it's wrong-ish to single out a few faiths, but I'm sure most Eastern Religions have no or very little respect for the Christian faith, since they try to even kill their family members simply for leaving their religions (for becoming secular). This is common in many Eastern religions, don't tell me that they are peaceful, just turn on the News.

India. Sadhu Sundar Singh (Hindu) was miraculously saved after converting to Christianity, his family tried to kill him. Where is the love???

In Europe many young Muslim girls are being murdered by their families today, just for becoming secular, or falling in love with men without faith (which is common in the West today). Where is the love???

Christians are being murdered in many non-Christian countries as I write this.

Many are being tortured in concentration camps in countries like, Korea, India, China, the Arab countries etc. Christian women are being brutally murdered TODAY in Ethiopia, India, the arab countries etc. Christians are also in jail in Buthan. Where is the love???

A few links, what's so peaceful about these religions???

I prefer a Christian society, even though only a minority are real Christians. We don't have these religious murders in Finland (at least not yet). When we start building Mosques etc. then we will inherit the violence these Eastern religions bring with them as well. I think it's pretty clear to see where we are heading.

This is what religion does (not faith), only a few axamples. This is happening NOW:

Iraq... 2 Christians murdered...

Pakistan:
The bodies of Pastor Shamoun Babar, 37, and his driver, Daniel Emanuel, 36, were found dumped on a road in Peshawar on April 7.

Pakistan: Christians Murdered in Church Service

Pakistan Christian murdered for leaving Muslim landlord

NORTH KOREA: Christians murdered

Africa 48 Nigerian Christians Murdered in Church

Turkey: Slain evangelists were tortured, says Turkish doctor

Egypt, 21 Christians murdered, 33 Christians wounded and 260 Christian homes and business destroyed

Turkey: Assailants killed three people Wednesday at a publishing house that distributed Bibles

Six Christians Murdered by Muslim Mob in Ethiopia

I could go on for months, listing murdered Christians TODAY...

Christians are not killing people.

There are of course a few countries which are only politically called Christian, but they have nothing to do with Christianity, it's just politics.

You can't go around killing people just because they think differently. And you can't save a single soul by force, it does not work that way...there must be a brain out there somewhere...

The Bible is very clear on the subject. You should concentrate on the New Testament, because the LAW on the Old Testament is no longer valid, since Jesus came and died for our sins. Naturally the Ten Commandments are still valid, but the religious traditions and rituals etc. are replaced by Grace.

I love Catholics but they used to go on their "Holy Wars" and kill "infidels".

I can't see how Catholics can call their "religion" Christian, when they override the Bible all the time, even the Ten Commandments. It doesn't work that way. You can't sin on purpose and then pray for forgiveness, God is not an idiot!

Yes, I do know that there are Christian Catholics too...I don't have anything against Catholics, but their theology is not from God.

I once had speaks with a Catholic Priest from Canada. I don't think he was a believer. I remember him telling me about some people in his church praying for the sick and the sick getting healed. He told me that they had asked him in church, if it was OK to pray for the sick. He shrugged his shoulders and said that he did not understand "it" and then, basically he told them to "knock themselves out" :-)

Catholics were even forbidden by their priests to read the Bible not so long ago, pretty wild eh? That tells me that there is something really sick in that church, it is called a whore in the Book of Revelations chapter 17 in the New Testament. Rome is built on seven hills...

The reason why many Catholic Priests are Pedofiles is that, they are men without faith. They have their priesthood as a job, they have no calling from God. Clearly they don't have any love in their hearts, just lust. The devil wants us to dwell in it, and just do whatever pleases us.

That's what devil worhippers preach, do whatever you like, and defy authority...what a disgusting bunch of Ego-Maniacs.

W need a personal calling from God, to know what His will for our life is.

We need to die from our own desires, in order to live out Christ in our lives. Without that personal contact with Christ, nothing good will happen in our lives.

Sure you can do good deeds, but they will not save you, because Jesus already has saved anyone who calls on His name. He saved me, and introduced me to the Creator and the Holy Spirit. It changed my life completely! Through them I found out that Jesus truly is the only way to the Father, and it is all about faith. Nobody is worthy to be saved, not even the Pope.

Religion is not Opium for the people (as Karl Marx claimed), it's a coffin.

I detest religion and politics, they are so manipulative. To have a personal relationship with Christ is wonderful, and only good can come out of it, but religion is like a ball and chain around your neck. That is what it is designed for, to manipulate your guilt, and give you a bad conscience. Once you feel bad, you are easy to derail even into killing for a "higher" purpose...which it totally unbiblical, but there you go.

Priests and governments use their loyal subjects like cannon fodder.

Just look at the Middle East. Children are taught to hate Israel, even from the cradle. Most of them never knew what hit them, they just hate Israel and are ready to kill maim and destroy. They are withheld historic facts about their background, they know nothing about Israel and very little about their own history. Where is the love???

Even learned men (friends of mine) in the west never questioned Yassir Arafat's smart lies. His tales are now considered as truth, Arafat said that he knew "they" would go for it (the Palestine ploy). He was a very evil but smart man.

Many actually think that Palestine once was an autonomous country with only Arab Palestinians living in it, which it never were :-)

They don't even know that the Romans named Israel Palestine just to mock the Jews!

Palestine means = The land of the Philistenes!!! (not Palestinians)

Ignorance is brutal, totally devastating for Israel. I'm not a Jew myself, I wouldn't mind being one though. I don't agree with their politics, Israel is in a mess right now.

I love Arabs as well as all other peoples (I really do) and I feel sorry for them for being pawns in a cynical political "quasi"-religious war.

I think that anything which is born out of prayer will succeed. It's best to start out that way, naturally we must never stop praying. To not pray is like forgetting to fill up the tank, when you are on the road.

People are telling us to "get real" and forget the God stuff. Kinda ironic since God is the only thing that's important in this life. We are only here on Earth for a short while, death is long...

I have received Jesus into my heart, so I will never actually die.

Only my body will die once, then I go to Glory...Wow! People who don't give a rats whatnot about Jesus will die twice! First you get to go to Hades (Hell) not a place a person can like. On D day those who have ived in Hell willstand trial and be thrown into the Lake of Fire, and experience death once more...sad.

Who wants to go there?

Count me out, I'm going to the Kingdom of Christ, that sounds like a much better choice to me. Jesus is actually a friend of mine, so I can invite you in too. Just say the prayer below, and He will invite you to His Kingdom. He paid for your ticket in full.

Man I'm tired...but happy.

4 new friends and the Uncle

I just finished my Swedish write, this is different. Generally I'm trying to put across stuff that God has shown me, I try not to talk about stuff that others have told me or what I've read. I want to share what the Lord has shown me personally.

Pontusjback.com is being interviewed by Hippi Hovi on Radio Vaasa today. Lot's of people are surprised by the new Pontus, who used to play lead guitar in Eroctica, and play in many other touring bands. Now he has found Jesus, and he is pretty stunned by what he has found.

Pontus used to drink like a Hippo, 3 big bottles of booze every day among other things, it almost killed him.

Pontus detoxed :-)

The doctors could not understand why he wasn't dead when he came to the hospital. His blood was so bad that he should have been a dead man. The doc's gave him 2-3 days to live... They drew blood 3 times, because it was so bad...the results were devastating.

Pontus looked like something that the cat had dragged in...

Photo © Benjamin Antell

To God be the Glory!

A bunch of Christian friends went down to see Pontus and prayed for him, I was one of them. Pontus was yellow like a lemon and his eyes were lime colored, because the internal organs were not working. All of a sudden God healed him! The doctors are at loss of words, but we (his friends) are happy.

I was probably one of the few who knew that Pontus would make it, because I saw him in a vision playing with me, and you can't play with dead men :-) Now that vision has come true, we have been on stage about 7 times already.

Now Pontus doesn't need a liver transplant or nothing!

Only God knows where we will go from here. I like to pray with people after the shows and lead them to God or whatever. It is always cool to see God in action. It's sad that so many miss out on the action, primarily because they don't go to church. All it takes is one short prayer, to get the ball rolling..

PS. Here's a simple prayer for you, in case you aren't used to praying, and you want Eternal life...it REALLY is this simple!!!

Dear Lord Jesus,

Come into my heart. Forgive me of my sin. Set me free. Jesus, thank You that You died for me. I believe that God raised You from the dead. Fill me with the Holy Spirit, the peace of God, and the joy of the Lord. Help me to forgive those who have hurt me! Give me a passion to reach the lost, a hunger for the things of God, and a holy boldness to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I'm saved. I'm born-again. I'm forgiven and I'm on my way to Heaven because I have Jesus in my heart.

Thank You Jesus!

If you said the prayer from your heart, Jesus has saved you! Look for an alive church, so that you have fellowship, nobody makes it on their own (I tried).

To those who don't know the Lord Jesus, King of Kings.

The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are ONE. Nobody understands it, but it doesn't matter, that's just the way it is. Jesus is the only door to God. The Holy Spirit is our helper, who guides us on Earth, as we pray to God in Jesus name for guidance.

When Jesus died for our sins, we became His heirs. So we stand to inherit everything from Jesus. Through Him we inherit he Kingdom of God. One for all and all for one, sound familiar?

Demons and evil spirits (fallen angels) of all kinds, can make us do all sorts of things that we don't really want to do. Mostly they will entice us to do things that God doesn't want us to do, like going to fortune tellers, magicians off all sorts, to read horoscopes, have sex outside the marriage, and everything that has to do with the occult is from the devil, even healing by crystals etc. satan can heal people also, and he does so when is serves his purpose. To be healed by the evil one is a curse.

New age religions have nothing to do with God.

They draw their powers from the darkness. Some evil spirits call themselves good spirits, I've even heard of evil spirits calling themselves the Holy Spirit. They will say just about anything in hopes of ruining our lives.

I never listen to the evil spirits as they start to talk sometimes before I throw them out in Jesus name. I remember one saying in a trebly voice (like a Shell commercial) "we are powerful"...I just told him to shut up in Jesus name and leave, now! And just like my Mazda Sport they whoomed it out of there.

Some evil spirits work through professed satan worshipers like, Marilyn Manson, Kiss, John 5, Sammy Davis Jr. Metallica and others. That's why I don't listen to their music, because I know that it is Anti Christ, against God.

The members of these bands that I mentioned, will burn in Hell with their master satan, like rubbish on Judgement day, unless they receive Christ of course. Jesus is ready to reveal Himself and to save them at any given time, if they turn to Him. Isn't that an amazing love?

I love God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, they mean everything to me.

Never before have I met so much compassion in my life. I owe God my life, if He hadn't answered my prayers and revealed himself to me, I'd be dead like a door nail today.

God will turn no-one down who comes to Him in Jesus name!

That's something I want you to always remember. Whoever you are, no matter what you have done YOU are always welcome in my Father's House.

Taking your life solves nothing, it's like sticking your head in the sand...you will still get your butt kicked.

If you take your life, you still end up in Court on D day.

You will still be judged. I honestly don't know what happens to people who take their lives, but I am afraid for their souls. Especially if they haven't received Christ, then there can be no salvation for them.

Death will be their final nightmare.

That's why it is so important that you get to know Christ, your Savior while there still is time. Don't wait if He calls you today, if you feel ever so slightly pulled towards Him, it is Christ who is reeling you in. Surrender and receive the gift of life. I did that in 1975 and I haven't regretted it even once.

Fred got bitten by a Tick, he has probably acquired Borelia as a result. I'd be grateful if you who are believers could pray for him.

I believe that sickness is a curse, that needs to be broken in Jesus name.

Due to "the fall of Man" we are subject to all kinds of diseases etc. I don't think that we as Christians are supposed to stay sick though. I believe in total healing through Christ. I've seen friends healed of all kinds of incurable diseases, so there's no doubt in my mind that God can heal anything.

For some reason, not all can "receive" healing.

Why I really don't know, even though there are many known reasons like, sin, disrespecting your spouse (God does not seem to want to bless people like that), if you hate somebody, feuds etc.

Sometimes people who are seemingly in harmony with everybody and everything, can't receive healing...go figure.

There is no reason to give up though.

When we focus on other peoples needs, we often tent to forget our own needs, this way everybody wins. Some even get healed while helping others, even without noticing it at first...like a bonus :-)

In spite of everything God is my bridge that takes me over all the daily rubbish. I've had my share of troubles and yesterday even my own brother was mean to me, although I never did him no wrong. I'm not going to get angry at him, there's no time, life is too short and besides...

Hate, strife and backtalk etc. weakens our prayers. If we spend our time judging or hating people, God will not answer our prayers anymore, that's just the way it is. We need to forgive and forget, just like God does.

In other words, we need to "Get over it", before the sun goes down.

Unfortunately I can't go to see my brother, because I'm persona non grata in his home...why, I really don't have a clue. My brother is not saved, so I figure satan's got something to do with it. All I can do is pray, that my brother will get over whatever it is.

Driving in wedges between people seems to be one of satans greatest thrills.

He is constantly at it, so it must be very important to him. I don't like satan, He's a real slime ball, I'm glad that the Lord will strip him of all his powers in the end. I wish the Lord would do it now, but there's a bigger picture that we as humans can't see as yet, I guess that's why satan is still in business (for now).

I'm going to the prayer cell tonight, we've got it going every Tuesday.

We are just a bunch of people wanting to spend time with the Lord and pray together. God is healing us and others bit by bit, it's really cool. Then on Wednesday there's the meeting at Kvevlax Missionskyrka (church), a lot of fun and free coffee with cakes afterwards.

This Thursday Pontus and I will play and pray in some form in Närpes, during some weird occult gathering.

Pontus and Ben live at Night of the Arts, in Vasa 2007.

"On a Mission from God"

We will do what we can to disperse the dark powers, and bring some light into the situation. I hope many Christians will show up, because the evil spirits can't function when the real Holy Spirit is present. Please come and pray, if you can.

Don't limit God.

Often when we pray for things, we limit God. Here's a bad example: Let's say I don't have a car...I might start out praying "Oh Lord please give me a Ferrari Testarossa " and end up saying "a Mazda Sport would be fine too"...as if it would be easier for God to whip out a Mazda...

Well, it is just as easy for God to answer a BIG prayers as as it is for Him to answer small ones, I think we just have to have faith and be bold :-)

Naturally very few people need a Ferrari, but hey, God's got ton's of humor.

I don't know what it is about cars and men.

I was always fascinated by them when I was younger, and I still am...even though they don't mean so much to me anymore.

Now I joke about my Mazda as if it were a Ferrari or something, when it actually set me back as little as a new moped :-) It's just a means of transportation, but I do think it's a fairly cool design though, for a modern-ish car. I primarily like car designs from the 20's-40's. Buick and Cadillac Fastbacks or Ford Hot Rod's are among my favorites.

My old ex Buick Roadmaster -48

Naturally we always have to be on our toes, so that we don't let any thing become too important in our lives, it's easy for something shiny and expensive to become an idol to us. God hates idols.

As I watched my kids when they were small, the girls automatically picked dolls to play with and the boys toy cars, that's just how we are I guess.

I remember when I was a little kid about 4 years of age, a couple gave me a doll, I remember thinking "what a strange present, what on Earth am I going to do with a doll?". I was very disappointed, even though I liked the couple a lot.

It's important to look back now and then, to see if we have grown both spiritually and as human beings.

We who are saved only need to go as far back as to the day that we were forgiven and saved, we should never cross that line, because what is past that is forgotten and rotten to the Lord. He has promised to forget everything up until the day of our salvation. To pull that old trash up would be a big mistake...like dipping your head in a public toilet.

I re-evaluate my life now and then.

I lost my hair in a drive-in movie. Photo © Fred Skymberg

There is always a lot to get rid of, and some to ask forgiveness for...sometimes to God and sometimes to those who have received the finger etc. Being a human is hard work, at least to me. There is so much we have to digest during our days in Dorkville. Not getting upset when people step in yer face is hard in the beginning...eh..still is.

It's fun when you actually forgive and forget the first evil persons you run in to in your new life.

People can be very mean sometimes, it often amazes me (still) how evil people can be. It's as if we were all born of demons in some respect. Some of us don't even notice what we say, we are so used to barfing at each other that we don't even pay attention when our lips reach the fan.

I often pray to God to help me clean up my act.

Naturally I should do it on a daily basis, but sometimes I forget and eat crow in the evening..."burp"...

Peace,

When people get saved they go from sad to happy, this makes some envious...

Photo © Fred Skymberg

A friend of mine who had a lot of problems in his life, was told by his "friends", "whatever you do, don't get religion".

Anyone who would tell somebody to stay away from God, is of the devil, it is satan speaking through him. This is serious, you should dump "friends" like that, they will pull you down, just because of envy and in some cases fear. A friend is someone who stands by you no matter what and tries to help, not somebody trying to stop you from finding peace!

Luckily my friend was saved, forgiven and his mental problems melted away.

Religion per se will not save anyone, but if you give your life to Christ, He will reveal Himself to you, and He will carry your problems for you and set you free. If He did it for a dork like me, why should you be any different?

I wrote a song about Jesus carrying our problems, on my last CD Luna Park. You can download the track "Piccolo-Bell Boy" for free here: http://www.antell.com/mp3/Track 4 Piccolo - Bell boy.mp3

Naturally you have to talk to God on a daily basis, and fuel up by reading the Bible and going to church. When you listen to good sermons, it boosts your faith, and gradually you will come to see your calling.

You can never find out God's will for your life if you don't spend time with Him. He wants to spend time with you, because He loves you. Why? I don't know, I've never figured that one out, but I know that God loves us, why would He have His son come down to Earth o die for us, if He didn't? And why would He waste a lot of time on a fool like myself? I see no other logic in that, than the fact that He must love us very much.

I know how it feels to love somebody.

There are persons whom I love beyond description, I just can't hug them because I'm afraid of scaring them away... I know that might sound weird, but I'm like that. I think God feels the same way about people, He loves us so much it's almost heart breaking, but He gets little or nothing in return.

People here in Finland are very strange, we rarely touch, everybody keeps to himself. I was much more open when I moved back here from Sweden (where people hug each other a lot), but now I'm pretty much like those around me...sad but true.

I hope and pray that God will do something about that in this country, because it is good for people to touch each other. It makes people feel better, everybody needs it, it's in our DNA.

Yesterday evening we played a few songs at Kvevlax Missionskyrka. It doesn't matter which denomination asks if we can come. We are not into denominations, we are just followers of Christ, Jesus is our main man, the rest is just hogwash.

Through a glass, darkly.

Photo © Fred Skymberg

I once wrote a track by that name on my CD In the bag. It's an instrumental, but it's still about what we can't really see, even though we can sense that there is more to life "out there". Download it for free here.

Or any other track of mine here (for free): http://www.antell.com/waam.html

I always "knew" that God was out there somewhere, but my vision of Him was pretty crude. I thought He was a mean old man, sleeping in the clouds. Boy was I surprised to meet Him in real life, only to find out that He was mostly the opposite to what I feared.

I found out.

That God is kind, has ton's of humor and is totally dependable. He doesn't give a rat's ass about what I've done or sinned, He is full of forgiveness and when God forgives, He truly forgets. He wants us to put all of our past lives behind us and to NEVER look back.

If you find yourself looking back...

Tell satan to push off, he is the one pointing us in all the wrong directions. If you remind the devil of his future, every time he comes around, he's not going to come around much.

Don't challenge him, he is truly evil (he is temoprarily powerful, even though he is afraid of Jesus), simply remind him of his fate and tell him to leave in Jesus name.

I believe that it's very rare for a person to actually meet the devil.

He is even more busy than Donald Trump (try getting him on the phone...). And just like Donald Trump, the devil can only be in one place at a time, so it's more likely that you have been harassed by some little demon, they are all over the place.

If you mention the spiritual world, many will think that you have lost your marbles :-) This is due to the fact that most people are totally ignorant about the spiritual world.

It's there clear as day, but they can't see it because of their unbelief, and sometimes self denial.

After I met the Lord and received the Holy Spirit into my life, I began to see the spiritual dimension as well. Anybody can see it who has God's Spirit, and anyone can receive the Holy Spirit through Christ and only through Christ. This is not an intellectual idea, it's the truth.

Jukka Korpela and Ben, live in the roaring 80's...

There really IS a God, I've met Him and I've been touched by Him physically. He can reveal Himself to you too. There's no need to be afraid, He is a loving God.

I'm going to sing about God in Kvevlax Missionskyka tonight and tomorrow in Vasa Missionskyka with Pontus J. Back. I just have to do it, because I really do believe that time is short. There is a great spiritual awakening taking place all over the world now.

When all peoples have heard about Christ, then He will come to Earth to get the Christians. I know it sounds weird, but that is what's going to happen. That's why I tell everybody (who wants to know) about Christ.

Pontus and Ben live yesterday in Vassor in the roaring 2007's...

Those who receive Jesus into their hearts before He comes will be saved, the rest will end up in Hell, later to be burned, just like rubbish.

It doesn't matter if you don't believe it, you'll still unfortunately go to Hell if you don't accept Christ. It doesn't matter if you have been a "kind" person all your life, it's got nothing to do with that.

Salvation is a gift, if you don't receive it personally, you won't get it! So don't blow it, receive Christ today, He is only a prayer away!

I know because I said the prayer, and Jesus saved me, I've met God for real, I'm not kidding. He will reveal Himself to you if you ask.

Christians are to make known the mystery of the Good News with boldness! Ephesians 6:19

Helsinki 2007 © Benjamin Antell

No more beating around the bush, no more blushing excuses. We are to "lay it on the line". People are going lost, it's a matter of life and death! We have to share the Good News while there is time.

Time is creeping up on us.

The other day a friend of mine was asked to sing at a church, for a group of people. They told him that he could not mention God or Jesus, because there might be someone in the audience who isn't a Christian, and it would not be good to cause offense that way!?!

To me a statement like that is crazy.

Why come to church if you are afraid of God? And why not preach the Good News if someone comes to church??? That's what church is for, to preach the Good News, and nothing else.

Helsinki 2007 © Benjamin Antell

Anyone who hasn't received Christ into their heart will burn in Hell.

Isn't that a good reason to preach the Word of God? If we don't preach, many will die. People of other faiths will never see the Kingdom of God. I'm not saying that to be mean, it is simply the truth. Jesus said it, I believe Him, because I really know Him.

I hate religion, it's from satan. But I love the Lord, because He really loves us.

Helsinki 2007 © Benjamin Antell

I'm forever grateful that He came to see me when I was down and out in 1975. I'm so grateful that He revealed Himself to me, otherwise I would never have been saved! And now He spends time with me on a daily basis, it's so cool. Life isn't perfect, but who cares when you get to spend time with the Creator daily?

I used to think that all religions were the same...

Since meeting God on a personal basis I know that it isn't so. There is only one door to God, and that is through Jesus Christ. And it's free for anyone who will receive Jesus. How do I know this? God tells me so! It's not just a stupid idea, God has revealed Himself to me, and He can reveal Himself to you too!!!

For Heavens sake, just ask!

Helsinki was still where it used to be.

A good friend of mine, the Finnish composer Kalle Sinkkonen brought me a 70's pedal for my music projects, thanks Kalle.

While I was in Helsinki, it hit me how we often build monuments to ourselves.

Being a painter myself, I especially remembered it when I saw the National Museum which was sponsored by a distant relation to me, Herman Fritiof Antell. In his case it's a tad different, because he is not very well known even though he was incredibly rich and gave all his remaining art collections (The Antell Collection includes works by van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne, and Munch) and monetary funds to the Finnish state. You can check some of them out here: http://www.ateneum.fi/default.asp?docId=11942

I got carried away, sorry...but that's how we are, we get carried away by superficial things.

Tower © Benjamin Antell

We should get carried away by what God does!

God saved my life also, way back in -75, when I was the singer in a rock and roll band. I had made my mind up to end my life with booze, basically because the only time I was happy was when I was drunk. That's why people start drinking, because it's fun in the beginning. Then after a while it turns into Hell, you lose control over your life and end up living in some kind of la-la land, dazed and confused.

Luckily, God answered my prayers, and reveled Himself to me before I started drinking big time. I never had to go down the same road as Pontus, my friend who found god recently. Read all about pontus here: http://pontusjback.com/

God is the coolest person I have ever met!

I still can't get over His kindness. Some blame God for all the evils in the world, but that is just stupidity, pure ignorance. God wants to use us, WE are the PROBLEM in the world. We don't want to go outside our damned comfort zone, we like to sit parked in front of our Gods...like the TV, the computer etc. Like girls, we just want to have fun :-)

Exodus 20:17
"You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."

If we cared about other people as much as we care about ourselves, there would be no wars, no fighting, no division, we would live in peace. That's why God tells us to love each other, really love each other.

1 John 3:14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers. Anyone who does not love remains in death.

Many of us don't even know the meaning of the word love.

We are so busy going nowhere, that we just waste our lives on basically nothing. Some join a religion, just to feel important, make their parents happy, or just to be "on the safe side". Others join clubs, rock bands, or sports of all kinds. Others rebel against their parents, and make that their religion, others do the same to society...they rebel for the sake of rebelling.

Much of the weird stuff we do, we often do out of sheer panic.

A panic over not having anything worth wile in our lives. Our lives are empty as balloons without God. I know, I had more hobbies than most people. I traveled around the globe as a kid, and I've seen more than most people, still my life was empty as a lightbulb.

Man I'm glad that God revealed Himself to me. He can do the same for you, if you dare try Him!

Peace,

Some are afraid to try God.

There's no need to fear God, we are supposed to respect Him not be afraid of Him. Some old Bible translations make people think that they are supposed to be afraid of God, that's not the way it is.

God is loving and kind and His house is open to anybody who really wants to come and visit.

All you need to do to receive Eternal life, is to say the short prayer below.

That's how it all begins, God will reveal Himself to you if you dare try Him! It's a promise, I kid you not, you will meet Him. It's so easy it's silly. Some are too afraid to try, it's hard for cowards to get to Heaven. I've met God so I know what I'm talking about, I don't care what people think "talk to the hand" :-)

Below is a prayer that you can say, in case you want to meet God and don't know how to pray (many don't!).

I urge you to try God, you won't be disappointed!

You life will take a turn for the better. Even if you are up to your neck in gaga, He will give you strength o go on, and to rise above your circumstances. Life isn't a dance on rose petals, but it can be exciting and interesting, if you want it to be...baby steps.

Peace,

I was so tired last night that I missed church.

One of our dorky chickens © Benjamin Antell 2007

Normally I go anyway, I did watch an incredible meeting on god.tv though. I believe the spirits often try to talk us into feeling tired etc. when it's time to go to church. That's why I normally go no matter what. The sleepy feeling normally disappears a few minutes into the service anyway.

Naturally I missed out on a lot of interesting happenings.

Pontus third daughter got saved, among other things, ain't that a miracle? If the Lord hadn't saved Pontus, he would have been dead as I write this, and all his children orphans. Thanks to God's supernatural intervention, he is now almost totally healed, he just walks funny. And all his children are saved, and on their way to Heaven...I think this calls for a Hallelujah!

Pontus at church (Mishan in Kvevlax) yesterday tattoos and all with a booklet we made, about his life and the danger with drugs and alcohol, and a few tips on the way to Heaven :-)

Hallelujah is a strange word to me.

I rarely use it, it's kinda lost it's meaning (to me) because there are so many saying it without really meaning it. It simply means Praise God, or so I'm told....so I tend to say Praise God instead :-)

If more people would Praise God, they would receive great blessings.

I know I have, and I don't thank or Praise Him even half as much as I ought to. We take so much for granted in our lives. When I think about it I realize, that God is blessing me all the time.

God also blesses the unsaved, even though it's trickier to bless them, since they have given one finger to satan, by not accepting Jesus into their hearts. Still God loves them, and hopes that they will one day turn to Him on their own, like we are all supposed to.

The road to Heaven is narrow and very slippery.

It's very easy to slip into the ditch, since so much depends on our own will" to do the right thing". We do have to work to stay on the right path, where there is will, God steps in to help when things get rough. We must do what we can, and then God will take care of the rest.
