When we preach the Word of God, some falls on the Good Earth and produces fruit, and some of it falls on the stony ground.
Still we need to go on doing the right thing. We all have and obligation to share what we have received from the Lord, we can't just watch our friends and foes go to Hell unawares.\
Why do we need to tell our foes?
Because God loves them too, He loves everybody. We are not here to condemn people, we are here to share God's love. When people tell us that we are crazy as hairy fish, we need to swallow our pride, and just go on with Our Heavenly Father's business. Words can't hurt us, they can only irritate our pride. What is pride? It's just a state of mind, it is unimportant. What is important , is that we obey Our Heavenly Father.
Obedience is more important than offerings or presents. Our Father already has everything in the Universe, so He only wants our obedience.
The Lord does not really need us, but He truly wants us to be His friends, because He loves us.
Why He loves us I don't know,
but no man would sacrifice his only Son just for fun.
Since God took the time to hug me physically, He must love me. That is all I need to know, He was the only God who actually really did do something as I looked for the \b Meaning of Life \b0 .
All the other so called god's remained in their books they never even burped.
The only secondary power I have encountered is satan's, but when He came around, I declined his offer. I could in an instance feel that he was up to no good, there was no love no positivity only death, alienation and a hellish cold about him as his chilly eerie mist actually filled my room physically one lonely night in Helsinki.
I didn't know the Lord back then, but I had speaks with Him. I don't think that I was on my way to Heaven at the time, but in His mercy the Lord taught me the difference between the Kingdom of Heaven or the Kingdom of Death. In a way I guess I made my choice back then, even if I didn't understand it.
I met the Lord for real two years later in 1975.
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).
Speaking in tongues Most of us who are baptized in the Holy Spirit speak in "tongues", languages that we don't know in the natural. Sometimes they are ordinary languages and at other times Heavenly ones. I've noticed that my languages vary, sometimes I understand a word here and there, and at other times I understand the content of the prayer. Other times I just feel stupid, but God works through the prayers.
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 \b 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 the Sea of Fire, after Hell with their master satan, like rubbish on Judgment 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 instead. 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. John Wayne and one of his daughters gave their lives to Christ just before he passed away! I heard one of his daughter's tell the story at the Crystal Cathedral once (I have it on a VHS). I used to watch his movies as a kid, I dunno why but I really liked that dude, it's going to be a blast meeting him in the next life :-)
Sin is like the dirty snow that falls heavily on the ground, Jesus is our skies, and the Holy Spirit is the ski-wax and our Goal is Heaven. When we reach Heaven we will receive our reward or be sent to place where the rest of the virgins are, who were too lazy, still just saved by grace. Because everyone who received Christ and did His will, will be saved.
I'm still working too much so I can't write every day as yet. Hang in there, and thank you for your kind cheers!

Why doesn't God always answer prayer, or doesn't He?
Because prayers are like seeds that the farmer plants. He doesn't go out into the garden 15 minutes after he has planted the crop, to see if it has popped up. How could it? It takes time for the seed to grow, sure it's there, but he has to wait to see the result of his work. It's just the same with prayer. Just because the Lord in His mercy, sometimes answers right there on the spot, we can't always expect the answer to come flying like a squirrel on fire. Sometimes we have to wait, and pray diligently. If we say "just as I thought, there's no miracle happening", then we curse the whole prayer in our folly. We can't expect to see miracles with an attitude like that.
When I witness about Christ, some think that I believe that I'm better than them. It's not about "who is better" it never was. But when you actually meet Jesus, you know without a shadow of a doubt that He is "whom He claims to be". Why? Because He proves it , He can touch us with His anointing and since we feel it physically we know that He is real. Some only feel the peace, but that is just as real. After you have met Him, he is just as real as the guy next door, you can never ever doubt Him again, for as long as you live. At the same time you realize that all other gods and faiths can't be true.
You know this after you have received the Holy Spirit also called the Spirit of Truth. When He shines His light in you, you can for the first time in your life "know" the meaning of life. Perhaps not in a way that will satisfy a scientist, but you will know "in your heart" that all Jesus said is true and that He is waiting for "you" to fulfill your mission on Earth. Whatever it may be, how small or great and "impossible" it may seem. For God nothing is impossible since He is not bound by the laws of nature, He is above it all (since He created it all).
This does not mean that you have to go to Africa as a missionary, we all have different callings. Some of us are supposed to be plumbers, doctors, cleaners, bakers, in the motorcycle ministry, musicians, painters or carpenters, I could go on until my wife comes home. God needs all kinds of people, the one thing we have in common is the drive to share "the Good News". We all need to share that, at work, in our spare time and whenever God tells us to witness.
People can tell by the way we live our lives, if we are on the level.
A good tree can not bear bad fruit. I was told by a friend yesterday that a certain rock star has always been a "Christian". This star is a part of the sex industry in the US, and is bragging on TV about how many thousand women he has committed adultery with (slept with). In other words, the fruit of his life is corruption. The fruit of his life is condemning him. As Christians we can't sleep around because it would grieve the Holy Spirit, nor can we be a part of the sex industry, because that business is run by the likes of satan, the destroyer. We need to live honest and true lives for Jesus our Lord.
Hbr 4:12 For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

I've been a follower of Christ for 33 years now (2008), eeek.
Time sure goes by quickly. It feels not that long ago, since I was a singer in a rock and roll band, belching out Johnny B Goode, Honky Tonk women etc. I don't miss that part of my life for a second. I'm so glad that God in His "mercy" pulled me aside and filled my rotten life with peace instead.
I'm also grateful that I never fell for drugs, they are a menace. Even friends who have kicked the habit, still struggle with the slag. Their minds are like a Burma Railway Station, there is so much going on that there can be no real sense of direction. They listen but they don't hear, they read but they don't see, they filter everything that they hear, and the end result is often a helter skelter version of their own imagination. This is due to the fact that everybody who has been into drugs, seems to be more or less Paranoid. I do believe that they can be healed, because I have seen many miracles in my time.
As Christian brothers and sisters we have to have patience and pray for these brothers and sisters diligently, until they are completely restored.
Some are healed in an instant but others need lots of prayers for extended amounts of time.
I made an addition to yesterdays write about the Vatican.

First I want to say that God loves our Catholic brothers and sisters just as much as anyone else.
However nowhere in the Scripture is it said that we should pray to Mary, saints or angels. On the contrary we are told to worship the Lord Jehovah alone. And to do so, we need to go through Jesus.
The only one who can forgive us our sins is Jesus Christ, because He died in our place, for our sins. Jesus has already paid for our sins! We don't deserve Grace, nobody in the whole Universe does and it isn't possible to earn it. Confession. You can't commit a sin with the hindsight of later asking for forgiveness. Only a religious fool could think like that, or a complete idiot. God is not stupid, He sees our hearts, He knows exactly what we are about. If we want to be forgiven, we have to honestly approach the Throne in Jesus' name. Then our heavenly Father will forgive us, based on the fact that Jesus already has paid for our sins, and for no other reason. Maria does not want our prayers. I'm sure that she is terrified to know that some people actually pray to her. Maria is nothing more than a woman, blessed sure, but still only a woman. She is no more Holy than anybody else. Read you Bible if you don't believe me, it's all there in black and white.
Any person who is canonized to become a saint, is nothing more than an idol. Anybody who can read, knows that God hates idols.
Just because God answers my prayers now and then, does not make me a religious saint. How could it? What can a man do in his own might? Nothing!
If the Pope in his folly canonizes people to become saints, it only proves that he doesn't know God's Word! Nor does he know the Lord. Leading people astray is serious business. Those of us who are teachers in one way or another will receive harsher sentences than others, that's why it's important to know what you are saying before you open your mouth. God will hold me accountable for every word I have written, so I'm certainly not going to muck about. Many argue that Hitler was a good Christian, because of the fact that the Vatican backed him all the way. Hitler was a mass murderer and a tyrant, anybody who backed him up must have had a very sinister agenda. To claim that Hitler was a Christian is ludicrous. Further more Hitler was into Black Magic (even Nicholas Shreck understands that much) and he even held seances in his castle in the mountains.
Black Magic is communication with the spirit world of satan, in other words it's for losers. Not to follow God's will is witchcraft! By the way I edit my writes from time to time, so they kinda have a life of their own. A while ago I went through them all, so I have tried to make them more precise. I still have to go over them and delete more of the air here and there. Sometimes I make additional comments

Is there love in the church?
Hardly (perhaps in some church, but I've never seen it), sure we pat each other on the back, but do we really care? I don't think so, not for a minute...well perhaps for 60 seconds :-)
Naturally I'm not talking about any specific church, just churches in general.
What do we do when somebody needs help? We normally pray to God to help them :-) Most of us do NOTHING ourselves, we just sit there looking holy...
I thought that we were supposed to help each other all that we can, and that the Lord would help us with the stuff that we can't handle ourselves
Some of us wait on the Lord to tell us IF He wants us to help somebody, as if everything was some Holy Quest. It's only natural to help people in need, but we're just so darn lazy in our comfort zone that we can't be bothered.
How does God feel about it?
I think that He is appalled to see how we live our lives selfishly, without giving our brothers and sisters a hand in their time of need. Sure we sometimes have more sympathy for each other than the "world" has, but is it enough?
No way! We are supposed to be family, but then again not even "family" means much in today's society. God is the only one who truly loves. He sure proved that when He sent His only Son to die for the world. Jesus came and died for us, in our place, without no regard for Himself. What a loving and unselfish thing to do.
Do we care?
Very few of us seem to really understand anything of what went down...Jesus was beaten, slowly tortured and killed for our sins! He was "totally innocent", and still He silently gave His life in our place. Think about it! He also died for YOU... Who else would die for you?
I'm pretty sure that nobody on our cursed Earth would give a damn about your sorry ass if the manure hit the fan, but Jesus did. He gave His life in your place! So what are you going to do about it?

The reason why I'm not writing daily at the moment is that I'm finishing a book that I've been writing since 2006.
I will be back though, unless God tells me to do something different... You never know with the Lord. The only thing that matter to me is that I follow His will for my life, the rest is not important at all.
This book will be in Swedish, it is based on my write. It will be crammed with art as well. I will probably be putting out other books as well (in English). Because I have lots of art to show the public. My pictures are also a result of my walk with the Lord, if I hadn't met Him I would not have pursued this line of adventures. I did exhibit some stuff in the 60's when I was a teenager but I was pushed into doing it. Later in life I felt like everything in the whole world was crap, so I wasn't really interested in saying anything, even though I did paint for my own pleasure, and to get food while I studied in Helsinki. I remember doing lots of huge (at the time) 70x100cm's paintings of Mark Bolan, Feliciano, Geezer Butler and other pop stars. I did other types of paintings as well. I have no photos of them, nor do I know where they are.

Does God have a sense of humor?
Naturally, I never knew that He had humor until I met Him though.
We used to joke around a lot when I was newly saved. Like when He used to wake me up in the mornings (since I didn't have an alarm clock). I used to ask Him to wake me up 1 minute before 7 or two minutes after, different time every morning. And He always woke me up exactly when I had asked :-)
This was a totally different God than the one I had briefly heard about as a kid. The God I had heard about was a vindictive sourpuss, a real angry old fellow on a cloud ready to mercilessly torture me at any time.
And nobody had told me about the Holy Spirit
who is now my personal trainer...
I didn't know that the Holy Spirit was a person. I had no idea that I could speak to Him and receive answers, I mean they call Him a ghost. A ghost is supposed to be dead, it's such a bad translation, it's a mystery that the blooper is still used to this day!
I didn't know that I could actually talk to God, and I had no clue how to lead somebody to Christ. Nobody had told me these things, only that God would punish, punish and punish me if I did this and that :-(
When and when/if I prayed, I prayed as a little child,
static prayers with no real emotion.
They were more routine or tradition than prayers, what a waste of time and power. God sure turned my life up side down. And now after all these years He is showing me even more than before, as I look for His perfect will for my life. I long for His council every day, I need to learn more before I slip on the soap of life and join the Choir Invisible. What we learn spiritually here on Earth will help us in the next life as well (it's in the Bible...somewhere). Sometimes I feel that I get a message word for word, but at other times I feel like I'm interpreting what the Lord is telling me as I write. It's not easy to criticize without sounding mean. I'm only writing what I feel that the Lord want's me to convey, perhaps because nobody else wants to? I don't know, He could have chosen a more eloquent person but I seem to be "it" for now :-)
One more thing about humor.
I don't think that God wants born again Christians to joke around like actors do on TV nowadays. Sexual innuendoes, crude jokes etc. are becoming more and more frequent in all series and movies. I think this grieves the Holy Spirit.\ Think about it, as born again believers we are already in Heaven in Spirit, would you tell God those crude jokes? I think not. I can't even watch series like Friends etc. they are disgusting to me, they make me very sad in my spirit. I've noticed that it's easy to get used to the jargon, if you watch them a lot.
In the 80's I used to watch TV a lot, but then
all of a sudden I noticed how sleazy it was...I woke up.
I know that makes me sound like an old fart to some, but so what? Some don't believe what I write and call me crazy as a hairy fish but I don't care. I have to do what God compels me to do, no matter what because He is all that I live for. What you do with the information is totally up to you.

Who is Jesus?
He is the Prince of PEACE!
Secular people rarely know this, they are so used to hearing cliche's about religious hostile people who do not know Jesus from a hamster.
The religious shout and curse at those who have not found Jesus, and boast about going to Heaven themselves. Boy are the purely religious going to be surprised as they end up in Hell with all their religious dogma. We all need to shun religion and become born again Christians if we want to enjoy Eternity.
Religion per se, gives people a false hope in their "own ability", to save themselves through works. How do I know that the religious will end up in Hell? Because that is where the vast majority of people are going, since most of us live only to fulfill our own egoistic dreams. Others are in panic of going broke, we all want to be economically viable, so some of us work, work and work while life and God passes us by... read John 6:27-35 in the new Testament.
Jesus taught us as born again Christians not to get drunk by alcohol or drugs, but by the Holy Spirit, "the Helper" whom the Father sent to Earth as Jesus' Earthly Mission was completed.
The Holy Spirit is our Comforter, he helps us on our walk.
He strengthens us and gives us Holy knowledge about the Bible which is our daily manual. Without the Holy Spirit there is no way for us to understand the Bible, since the Bible is NOT an ordinary book.
At this time I can only give you a silly picture of "how" the Holy Spirit works :-)
In comic books there is often this little fairy who sprinkles stardust on things to give them "life", that's how the Holy Spirit works. When His "anointing" hits us, our spiritual eyes are opened and we can see into God's Future.
Then there are religious fools who think that a good deed or two will get them to Heaven.
Deeds have nothing to do with it. Good deeds are only a natural result of somebody walking with the Lord. But only deeds will get you nowhere. Even if you donate millions of dollars to the poor or to the church it has no meaning, if God is missing from your life.
Read John 6:28-29 Nobody is worthy of Heaven, this is why Jesus had to die in our place.
Jesus was totally dedicated to His Mission, that and only that is the reason why we get to meet His FATHER. If it weren't for Jesus, the only Son of God, we would have to die in our sins. Jesus is perfect, He proved it by giving His life for the world. With His life he showed us how to live, unselfishly and totally dependent on God.\
Getting saved is for everybody. That's why it is so ridiculously easy to get saved. The only thing we have to do is to receive Jesus into our hearts honestly. That is how it all starts, then you need to ask for the Holy Spirit, with this you "might" need help from a living, loving church or from any born again Christian. After this you need to give the Lord ridiculous amounts of time. God wants us to spend lots of time with Him because He wants to be our personal friend! He will take care of you, you won't have to worry about tomorrow, if you accept Him into your life.
Some of you think that you don't have any "spare" time to spend with God. If that's the case then I'm truly sorry for you, because that's a lie from the devil. It feels good to spend time with the Lord. Not much else really matters to me. I used to be very busy with other things, but frankly "what's the point"? We are only here for a fraction of Eternity, everything we have is a loan from the Father, we don't get to take anything with us when we leave.
In Jesus our old life is totally gone, and our old way of thinking must also go. Because after receiving Him, we are already in Heaven (in spirit)! Only your body is still on Earth! That's how it works, few understand this, but that is how it is.
Naturally we grow as we walk with the Lord, we grow until we die and our soul goes to be with the Lord forever, all 21 gram's of it.
The rest of the peoples on the Earth who pray to other gods, decline Jesus or try to stay neutral will all sadly go to Hell instead, no matter what. And after Hell they will stand trial only to be condemned to the second death. Death will be a terrible disaster for them. They don't go to Hell because they are "bad" people, they go simply because they have ignored Jesus, the ONLY door to the Father.
I ignorantly used to believe that all religions were one, before I met Jesus.
But He told me that it isn't so (no religion will lead to God) He really did, I'm not kidding. Jesus says the He is the ONLY door to the Father. I believe Him because He was the only one who really answered when I looked for God. This is why I'm writing this, I'm simply a voice calling from the sticks. I'm trying to warn people of the coming judgment, but also inform them of the WAY OUT in Jesus Christ who died in YOUR place. Your trip to Heaven is paid in full, the only thing you need to do is to get on board.
Everyone is welcome!!!
No matter how poor/rich, evil or sinful you have been, God forgives you because of Jesus. Relax and receive, remember to always love those around you and you will be fine. Read John 6:37-40.

An Atheist friend of mine has experienced things of a supernatural nature and he doesn't understand them.
He seems to think that they are tricks of the mind. How do you explain the spiritual world to an Atheist? If an Atheist does not believe that there is a God nor a devil, there is really no way that I can think of how to enlighten a person of that nature. How do I explain the parallel spiritual reality which runs along side with the natural to a person who has no spiritual life? The Religious man tries to work his way to God, but he can't. All we need to do to find Christ, is to receive Him into our hearts, it's so easy it's silly.
Religion gives us a false hope.
To find God, we have to receive Jesus into our lives and ask forgiveness for our sins, since everybody sins. We also have to be serious as we do this. Afterwards things will start to happen in our lives. To some God reveals Himself right away, to others in a while. He treats everybody individually since He is Omnipresent and time is not pressing on Him in any way. After being born again, we can receive the Holy Spirit into our lives, He too is a person. It's when He comes that things really get off the ground so to speak. Once we have the Holy Spirit in our lives, it is no longer for us to doubt God. There is just no way, since He is real and not a silly mind game.
We who are born again walk with one leg on the natural and the other leg in the spiritual realm, some of us even see the fallen angels (spirits) who are around us every day.
Even people who aren't Christians can see these beings sometimes, when it happens they are unfortunately often sent to the Funny Farm to get sedated. That's how society in it's stupidity "treats" the sensitive ones. Many lives are destroyed by this treatment since these sedated victims, often become slaves of their oppressors. When you are sedated, your own will power is also sedated and you become easy prey for the devil's helpers. satan is the name of a beautiful creature that the Lord created who went totally crazy and thought that he could take his Maker's place. He managed to get a third of the angels to mutiny with him... This would have to mean that all angels aren't especially bright...at least some of them must be pretty stupid.
Anyway, God kicked the whole bunch out of Heaven right away. After all what can a created being like satan really expect to achieve by attacking his Creator? The devil must be very stupid as well, even though he is very smart compared to humans... This would mean that humans are exceptionally stupid... You don't have to be very intelligent to figure that one out. All the gifts that we have are God given, we are nothing in ourselves. We have never managed to be good to each other. We keep on going to war against each other time after time. No matter the outcome we still keep on fighting, mostly out of our own greed.
When we (the Finns) won the war against Russia, gripped by greed and wanting an even larger piece of the cake we lost a great chunk of land (Karelia) to them instead. That's how it goes... Some Finns sit around criticizing the Americans for treating the American natives badly. I really don't think we can afford to do that, not after the way we have treated the Russians. We are no better than any other nation, we are just as evil and greedy as everybody else. God have Mercy on us.

I was reminded about the mystery of healing yesterday.
Even though people get completely healed during prayer, they sometimes get sick again a while later. The reason for this is that the demon of pain often tries to return after a while.
That's when we have to verbally command him to get lost in Jesus name! This isn't perhaps very common but it does happen to some.
I heard a preacher once who talked about this.
He said that the Lord once told him, that if he would pray for a certain lady at the meeting, she would be completely healed in her back. She couldn't walk without her Rollator. She was miraculously healed. Then the Lord told the Evangelist to teach her about faith. One of the things he said was something along this line. He said "after a while the devil might come to remind you of your former sickness, when He does ward him boss by claiming your healing verbally".
Some time later the Evangelist received a letter, in which he was told that one morning as the lady had woke up a couple of weeks later, the pain in her back had returned. She immediately told the devil to get lost and claimed her healing in Jesus name. Since then she has been fine.
I have experienced these things myself as well so I know it's the truth.
My back was healed in 1976 and it's fine to this day :-) A friend of mine who got healed didn't understand to ward the devil off so he is in pain now again. He's getting better but it's a slow process. He could have claimed his healing, but he believed that the pain was natural so he didn't. We need to realize the authority which we have in Christ. The devil is only a created being, he has no power against us as long as we stand firm in the Lord, honest and true to His Word.
I'm not trying to put anyone down with my Write, and I don't hate anybody. \b0 \ 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, when they could in fact be totally set free in Christ.
Copy it right.
