Peace,

Love or die!

What's the point of dying without ever bothering to find out if God exists? Why deny Him based on a hunch, while you still have a chance of finding out "if" He is real?

I read the Bible partially, just to find out what was required of me. I must admit I didn't understand much, but I quickly noticed that Jesus said that He is the only door to the Father. This was enough for me to start looking for Him. Silly as I am I wasn't going to put much effort in doing so, I tried to find all the short cuts I could...life is short :-)

Look what I can do...

Today I'm glad I at least gave Him a month, because that was what it took for me to find Him. For others it might only take one prayer. We are all different, and we have different backgrounds, so the Lord meets us where we are, just as we are.

To be loved by God is the most wonderful thing in the world.

Most of us never find "real love" in the world, but Jesus loves us unconditionally. He died for us, in OUR place. If that isn't love then what is? The fact that He touched me physically blew me away, and I still can't understand why He bothers with us.

God doesn't really need us for anything, but still He uses us to reach others with His message of true love and Eternal life.He demands nothing of us, other than that we love all men/women on planet Earth.

To those who are against female teachers I only have one word "Deborah". (Judges 4)

 

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).

Speaking in tongues

Most of us who are baptized in the Holy Spirit speak in "tongues", languages that we don't know. 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.

Free music!!!

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 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 :-)

I've crossed the line and burned my bridges.

Since I met the Lord I have severed my ties to the world. Sure I still have friends out there but I don't live like them and I don't enjoy the things I used to, apart from art and music. I can't really listen to the same music that I used to listen to any more, because the lyrics are often too sleazy. I don't want to listen to la la lyrics etc. I need substance in music and art and I certainly don't enjoy anything that will put down my Master Jesus Christ.


Some fools say "God hasn't told me to stop doing this and that", just because they enjoy holding on to parts of their old life.

Just because God hasn't specifically told us to stop doing something questionable, doesn't mean that He condones them. That would be a very egoistic and carnal assumption. If we "really" want to know God's will, we have to "ask" Him. And if we are uncertain about specific areas, then it is better to skip them for the time being, because then it is probably our conscience speaking to us. And most of the time they are carnal things anyway, stuff that will take us farther away from the Lord.

Sometimes we need to take a break from stuff that has been "too important" in our lives.

God needs to come first in our lives on every level, if we are going to find His perfect plan for our lives. There's no need to hurry, we need to slow down and spend quality time with the Lord if we want to know our destiny. It seems like fasting often is the only way, then the Lord will know for sure that we are serious.
Very few people that I know like to fast, to go without food for a day or so. Most of us want to eat and be merry and strut our stuff.

Sometimes there's no end to our excuses when God wants us to do the right thing :-)

I'm sure that God wants us to enjoy life, but at the same time I don't think it's possible without first seeking His will...


Talk to me... © Benjamin Antell

I don't think that the Lord wants us to feel burdened, and I don't think we will feel that way if we look for Him first.

To many it seems hard to just sit down and spend time with the Lord, since there's so much else going on. God does require a lot of our time, and we often feel that life is too short :-)

That's a Booby trap most of us slip into, reality is very different. Sure we give God a lot of our time when we first get to know Him, but after we start to function we change somehow. Everything becomes more natural and fun. After we get to know God it's pretty smooth sailing in that department.

Naturally we still have to jump over obstacles that the evil one lays in our path from time to time, but that is only natural. The devil is envious of our joy and our success in the spiritual realm. Besides he doesn't want any competition, people messing up his sordid plans. He will hate your guts but that's OK because the devil hates everybody, even his closest helpers...he only loves himself.

A fire distinguisher, moi?

Stay true to yourself and look for God every day, your life will turn into a great blessing.
Not only for yourself but also to those around you. When you are full of the fire of the Lord anything can happen. There is no better way of convincing people of His power, if we ourselves are filled with His fire.


I too am seeking the Fire of the Lord right now.

I met Him in 1975, it's been a long and bumpy road. I got caught up in the rat race but when I got out of it I noticed I was still a rat. My only option was to look for Him ernestly. The devil even tried to kill me a few times, but the Lord kept him from succeeding. So here I am waiting on the Lord and I'm looking forward to knowing Him better.

After all the only thing that interests me is to find His perfect will for my life.

Peace,

Just found out something new (or forgotten).

Before the flood everything was bigger. The Oxygen level was twice as high before the Flood as it is now.

Photo © Fred Skymberg 2008

If you grow something under these circumstances in a Lab environment it will grow much larger. I heard an example of Cherry tomatoes, they grew to the size of Tennis balls in those conditions. It was discovered that the oxygen level was twice as high when they drilled into the air bubbles of Amber, like in Jurassic Park (if you've seen the movie). Anyway that would explain why the human footprints on the Paluxy river bed were XL.
As I told you earlier, human footprints and Dinosaur footprints have been found side by side in Texas.

Oh yeah I also wrote about the Ark a while back or two, and they have actually found the ark already.

Naturally it's been cannibalized since the Russian Tzars' expedition in the 20's, but it is there on Mt. Ararat. The anchor stones are intact etc. You can check it out on the Internet. There is also a very interesting video with VenomFangX or whatever his name is, just click the name and it will take you to the video. There you will see the remnants of the Ark as well. (Some of his videos are a tad on the silly side while others are brilliant. Check him out!)

Now 4 something completely different

Photo © Fred Skymberg 2008

When I made some comments on youtube, I was attacked by all kinds of weird people.

Some were devil worshippers who signed off with "hail satan" and silly things like that, another one claimed that he was a "Christian" and called me stuff I wouldn't even call the devil. He cursed me and behaved like a madman. I'm not going to repeat what he wrote but it was very graphic. I checked out his site and saw that he had Antichrist symbols on his page...

Saved or not?

I found that there are loads (probably thousands) of people on youtube who "think" that they are saved, even though they're not! They put down unbelievers and call them names, stating also that they will burn in Hell etc. Jesus never said anything like that to anybody, He also tells us not to curse.

Jesus told us to LOVE even our enemies

I really don't think that we can expect to see Heaven, if we curse at people and hate them.

That got me thinking how truly sick the church is.

When there is no fire in a church, religion takes over and all Hell breaks loose.

That's just the way it is. Many church members and men of the cloth (Priests, Bishops, Popes etc.) aren't even saved!!! When they preach, they often say the right things, but if the Holy Spirit is left outside there will be no fire in the hearts of the believers and no spiritual life in the church. Only crap and humanism can emanate from a church like that. Humanism is what turned the zeitgeist guy into a murderer. Stripped of the meaning of life, he felt like he had nothing to live for and shot his school mates. Without Christ we have no purpose in life, without Him we are nothing.

It's a jungle out there!

The church has messed up big time in days of old by playing saints and calling all others for sinners (except it's rich friends).

Some religious priests still do evil stuff, since they don't know Jesus from a Hedgehog. We are ALL sinners, all of us have fallen short. That's why we need Jesus, the Son of God (not like many demonic Bible translations state "a son of the gods"). Jesus was no stinking prophet He IS the Son of God. And there is no other God than Jehova (although He has many names).

It must be very hard for a nonbeliever to find his way in today's society with so many liars out there and "Fawlty" Bible translations, and simple propaganda against spirit filled Christians.

I'm really sad for the young ones who are bombarded with filth on a daily basis, we all have it up to our necks by now, and it's getting even worse.

At the same time however, many are finding God as well.

It all starts with a simple prayer. I know it sounds too simple and it is! If you want to try and see that the Lord is good, check out the short prayer below.
It certainly worked for me, otherwise I would not be spending my time trying to point to Jesus.

I'm not getting anything out of this myself, it's only costing me time and money. However I feel obliged to tell people about what I have found, so that they too can have fellowship with the Lord Jesus. He's the Main Man.

Jesus is the best thing that's ever happened to me on planet Earth.

Be sure to book a table at the Wedding feast!

There will be a great Wedding Feast in Heaven between the Bride of Christ and Jesus. "Bride" being all the Born Again Christians of the world. The tables are already being set. It will be the Greatest Wedding in the history of mankind. It is mentioned in the Bible in many places.

When the Book of Life is full, it will be too late to apply!

Be sure to receive Christ today, that is the only way that you can come to the wedding and receive Eternal life through Christ. There is no other way. You can't get there by doing some good deed or just being nice, that has NOTHING to do with it. The only thing you need to do is to receive Christ as your Lord and Master.

The Parable of the Wedding Banquet

1 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: 2 “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. 3 He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come.
4 “Then he sent some more servants and said, ‘Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.’
5 “But they paid no attention and went off–one to his field, another to his business. 6 The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. 7 The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city.
8 “Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. 9 Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’ 10 So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.
11 “But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes. 12 ‘Friend,’ he asked, ‘how did you get in here without wedding clothes?’ The man was speechless.
13 “Then the king told the attendants, ‘Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
14 “For many are invited, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22 NIV.

Peace,

Jesus wants us to read His "Last Will and Testament" to the World.

Photo © Fred Skymberg

He left His Last Will and Testament to mankind as He left for a spell. His will applies to all men regardless of color, race and stature. Anyone who will acknowledge Him as their King and Savior will be adopted into His Royal family...read my lips ANYONE. That means YOU!

God knew that nobody would be able to keep His law of the Old Testament, so He sent His only Son to die in our place.

Somebody Had to take the blame, Jesus did it willingly. Now we can live forever thanks to Jesus atonement for our sin. It's our choice, either we accept or reject the Word of God. If we receive Him, we will live forever, if we ignore Him or flat out deny Him, we die..twice. Also those who foolishly think that they will be saved, just because they have been "nice" will be doomed.

Photo © Benjamin Antell, Bayswater.

Those who choose to ignore Him by staying neutral or whatever, will inherit Hell and after Doomsday they will have to die the second death in the Sea of Fire.

What a waste...

That is why we need to share the Good News while we can. Nobody except the Father knows when Jesus will return to Earth to collect His followers. It could happen at anytime now, most of the scriptures have already come to pass.

When all nations have heard the Good News and the Book of Gentiles is full, the Jews are next.

When the Jews call upon the Lord Jesus, He will save them. They are His chosen people, no matter how they have treated Him in the past, they are still His people of choice. Lucky for us the Jews rejected Him at first, so He decided to extend His mercy to the rest of the world as well. We owe a lot to the Jews :-)

Be sure to book a room in Heaven today, while there still are vacancies!

Peace,

Think for yourself!?!

That was a tip that I got while talking to religious Atheists, Agnostics, silly people and Devil worshippers on youtube.com :-)

Who really thinks for themselves!

Photo © Benjamin Antell

As soon as you join one group or the other, you automatically subscribe to the respective group's ideas. That's just the way it is. And after doing so, many shut their ears and eyes to everything else...unfortunately.

The people that I talked to were adamantly holding on to their beliefs, and claimed that I was not thinking for myself...how silly is that???

I only know that Jesus answered me when I looked for God, no other God did that for me!

Photo © Fred Skymberg

That's why I decided to follow Jesus Christ. He has never let me down, He is the best thing that's ever happened to me. I met Him for the first time in 1975 when I was a rock singer in a band. I had actually just left the band because I was tired of the "world". I had to pray for about a month before God answered me.

Whoa Nelly!

I never really expected God to answer me...but He did! The only way I can "prove" that He did , would be if you tried God for yourself. That's the only way you are truly going to find out that He IS real. Because people don't even believe when they see miracles. The hearts of the unfaithful are so hard that they just can't believe even when they see God do His thing. Luckily not everybody is hard as a rock, there are those who realize what is going on and turn to God. These are truly blessed people, then there are also those who believe even without seeing, they are even more blessed according to God's Word (the Bible).

I guess I was one of the stubborn ones.

Because I refused to accept Jesus before He actually kicked my butt so to speak. I'm soo lucky, and I'm ashamed that I didn't believe without being hugged by God physically! But God is so full of love that He did all that for me personally so that I would believe. I can never thank Him enough. There's nothing I can do to thank Him. It's all a gift from Him to me, and He is extending His hands to YOU in "welcome". All you need to do meet Him is to ask Jesus to come into your life and forgive your sins. (We all sin every day). There's a prayer below...

When I was young I read somewhere in the Bible that you should forgive your enemies before the sun goes down. Some years ago I found out that there's a blessing to this. When I forgave a person for something, I also asked the Lord to remove all bad vibes so that things could go back to where they were before the incident. God removed all bad feelings and we could go on (at least I could :-) with a clear conscience.

This was a very enlightening experience for me, I didn't know that it really worked so well. It's so easy for those bad vibes to linger normally. God is good.

You don't need to be "somebody else" to do God's work. You are the one who the Lord made you to be, just roll with it. People will notice if you are honest, even if some people badmouth you, time will show them who you really are. Just stay true to the Lord, and ignore all wagging tongues :-)

Many try to emulate others, it's so phony.

I've even seen preacher's who have evidently studied other preacher's moves...man how corny can you get? The only person in the Universe that we need to "try" to copy, is Jesus. Forget the rest, we are all out of whack in different ways, nobody has all the marbles in his bag.

God wants to use you because you are you. He wants you the way you are. The second after you have received Him, you are ready to tell others about Him, to pray for the sick and so on. Just trust Him, thank Him and do His will.

People in the street will notice if you are the real McCoy or if you are a "toodle pip".

People can easily spot a phony, that's normally the case. Naturally there are weirdo's who are paranoid and very manipulative who can mess up your nest, but luckily they are not so common. If you run into one, don't take it personal! It's just the old dragon working through him/her to try and mess up your calling.

It's important that we don't waste time trying to defend ourselves when the dove's cargo hits the fan.

Just drop it and move forward, don't get bitter or anything negative like that. Just brush it off like a fuzzball, and pray for the people who are on your case. Forgive them before the sun rolls down the hill and drop them, and you'll feel much better in the morning.

Resist sin until you sweat blood...

Jesus did that, what a dude! We are all like little girls compared to Jesus. As soon as the going gets tough, we gobble down bottle after bottle, take to drugs or whatever. Man we are a bunch of sissies.

I've often wondered how easily some people give up.

We are incredibly self centered most of the time "poor me" seems to be our favorite slogan. It's weird how self absorbed we easily become. We don't see those around us suffering in bondage because of our egoistic way of life.

Jesus wasn't like that, not even for a second. When the devil tempted Him, as he was about to give up His life for us in total degradation, He sweat blood as He resisted the old dragon (satan).

I'm sorry but, I often have a hard time taking peoples complaints seriously, most of the time they are so incredibly shallow. Most people seem to lose their perspective of things as soon as Mr. Trouble comes knocking at their door.

Naturally I feel sorry for her, since she lost her life, but my point is her "perspective". She didn't have to take her life! You don't have to go to extremes when the manure hits the fan. There's always a way out. Jesus is always there for you. Life isn't over just because of a monetary hitch. But that's what can happen if you don't live a life as a chip of the old Rock (Jesus).

If we live "in" Christ, spending time with Him on a personal basis, we won't think like the woman did. We won't even need to participate in lottery and such, because God can deliver us in every respect and in every aspect of life.

 

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).

Peace,

No more worries.

When Jesus entered my heart, my worries went out the door, and with them a bag full of questions. All of a sudden my view of God, the world and everything changed. I was given spiritual goggles, everything looked different. It was truly a miracle.

That's why people seem different after a conversion, we ARE different. In Christ we are totally new beings. Naturally some of the old me still clings to one leg, but in time most of it will rub off as I fight the dragon (the evil one).

I met God in 1975 and I have never regretted my choice, not even for a millisecond.

One thing that's important to know when you look for God, is to really concentrate as you pray. He answered me even though I was pretty negative, He can do that too. But I've found that, when praying with people, that the receptive ones get more answers. We need to really "want" the answers, not just to pray casually.

Peace,

The devil's got a smear campaign going on right now!

It's happening here in Finland and Sweden, I'm sure it extends all over the Earth. I just thought I'd tell you, because it's easy to get side tracked when old friends all of a sudden turn on you.

Don't take it personal, just drop them like hot potatoes and move on. Many times they have no idea what they are on about even. It might dawn on them later, who knows?
Say a prayer for them but drop them, they are no good friends anyway! Don't get bitter, don't try to analyze "why" they are on your case, it's not important in any way. Just look for the Lord with all your heart.

You can always depend on the Lord.

If things "seem" to go wrong, ask yourself, are you really doing God's will or are you barking up the wrong tree? People will always let you down sooner or later. This is certainly my experience in life, anybody will sell you down the river if the price is right. So think about it 888 times, before you spill your guts to somebody. If you really need to talk to somebody besides God, talk to a Christian minister, and be sure that he is a born again Christian.

I heard a story about an Eagle who caught a Weasel, when he took off with it, the Weasel bit his way into the chest of the Eagle and both fell to the ground and died. That can happen to you, if you hold on to people who are sucking the living daylights out of you. Sometimes you just need to let them go, if you are going to grow, and get to do God's will. Some people are like parasites who just drag you down in different ways.

One of the devil's favorite weapons is sex.

He often sends somebody of the opposite agenda to lure people away from their calling. This is very effective on most people, I've seen it happen time and time again. After a while they usually brake up and some are hurt for life.

At other times the devil uses power or money.

All of a sudden you get offered lot's of cash for some reason, and you lose your perspective.

Another weapon that is common has a lot to do with drugs (weed).

Those of my friends who have "used" Hashish and Cannabis, have a really hard time in their emotional life. Especially those drugs make most people suspicious in a sick way. The drugs often make them think that people want to hurt them or trick them. It's very common, drugs do that to people.
If they would stop and think, they would realize that most people have no interest what so ever, to hurt them in ANY way. Especially not friends, "why" would we want to hurt them? There's no logic in their suspiciousness.

I just thought I'd mention this since it's a common problem, in case you have a friend who has received the Lord and stopped smoking weed.

Some are healed completely, but others have to go through a lot of hardship because of their former drug abuse. The brain does not take kindly to drugs.

Sometimes the suspiciousness is of a spiritual nature, in which case they need deliverance.

Any born again Christian should be able to deliver them from their oppressors in Jesus name. After all Jesus name is above all other names, no one else holds the keys to death.

The medical profession is making a serious mistake using Cannabis (Weed) as medicine.

It is a completely crazy idea, but that's what happens when people with no spiritual insight try to help others. When you smoke Pot, your natural resistance to spirits and demons is lowered and viola, you have more trouble than you bargained for.

I know many people who have these spirits, and are in desperate need of deliverance. Naturally I can't help unbelievers who have these problems, if they don't understand to ask for help. Some of them don't even understand that the problems are spiritual. If I should deliver an unbeliever from his evil spirits, then they would soon come back with more "friends" and the poor fellow would be even worse off than before. (it's in the Bible).

If people only knew how wonderful it feels to receive the anointing, they would "never ever" buy a joint or a bottle of booze ever again!

When the Holy Spirit comes into your life, you will experience wonderful moments of indescribable joy, and feelings of being intoxicated, but in a totally positive way. It's hard to describe, but it feels a bit like being blotto, but much lovelier with no hang over.
I should know, I used to drink a LOT before I knew the Lord, and I was very angry at Christians for NOT letting me know that there was a Holy Spirit and that He can lift our spirits from Hell to Heaven. I just didn't have a clue, I though being a Christian was a lot of suffering without having any joy what so ever. And that God was a mean old man with a chip of the Ark on His shoulder.

Lucky for me the Lord kicked my butt in the right direction when people didn't care :-)

I'm such a fortunate idiot, Jesus saved my life just as I was going to end it all in a river of booze. Now I don't need to get drunk any more, there is absolutely no need for it. I have a future in Eternity, I have a Lord who really loves me, why? I haven't got a clue but it's true. Why else would He take the time to come and see me in person? Me, a complete nobody...a fool.

But that's just who God is, a loving and forgiving God. Not like the other demi god's that people have to feed and fear. Jehovah of the Bible is the real thing, Jesus is the ONLY door to Him, and the Holy Spirit is our helper here on planet Earth. Without Him I would be lost.

I've studied religions of all sorts in my spare time earlier, but I found nothing to help me before Jesus stepped in my face :-)

Religions are dangerous, they are like prisons to many. Religions are only mind games, and I hate mind games. I'm so glad that I have a living relationship with God through Jesus and that the Holy Spirit is my comforter, He sure beats Southern Comfort any time.

Peace,

I think a lot will happen to the world this year,

My prayer is that as many as possible will find out what an awesome God we have. And that He can be a personal God to anybody who receives Jesus into their hearts.

If you want to know what's going on in the spiritual realm, check out http://god.tv/.

There's lot going on, millions of people all around the world are finding God right now! While many Christians are in concentration camps in Eastern countries, yes, you read right! People are in concentration camps and the media is pretty silent. It's just like in the days of Hitler.

Many Christians will have to die for their beliefs, but that's just how it is.

It's all a spiritual battle (Ephesians 6). Here in Europe we are pretty fortunate so far. We don't have to suffer like our brothers and sisters in India, China, Korea, Muslim countries and many other places. We can sit in our churches and play house.

We need to get off our butts and out into the streets and tell the people the Good News, before it's too late.

We won't have it this cozy for long, I'm sure tribulation is up around the bend. But it doesn't matter one bit to me. I know who I am and where I'm going, because I have Jesus in my heart. Even if they chop my head off, my heart will still be singing praises to the Lord.

Death has lost it's sting, since Jesus rose from the dead.

I'm not just saying this because of some silly "stinking religious" belief. I really do know God, and we speak daily. Anybody can talk to God and get answers. If you are lazy, it won't work, but if you are serious you will be rewarded. God wants to spend time with you because He loves you. Jesus is however the only door to the Father, so be careful. There are many deceiving spirits all over the world, copycats, trying to copy everything the Father does. Don't let them fool you.

Pray to God in Jesus name, and He will guide you through the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is the one who gives me the strength to go on. I love Him for that. Imagine that, God actually taking the time to talk to me on a daily basis. Don't resist Him if He speaks to your heart! Things can only get better if you let Jesus in :-)

Benjamin Antell, Live @ Sandö, Wasa.

I'm not trying to put anyone down with my Write, and I don't hate anybody.

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.
