90.000 Christians are TODAY in Concentration camps in North Korea and China! And all people worry about are the monks in Burma... Naturally I'm sad for them also. But they have brought everything upon themselves by worshipping Buddha and whatever.   

God (whom they do not even believe in) has warned us time and time again through history NOT to worship any other “gods” (spirits). Still they sit there wasting their lives on man made rituals, afraid of the evil spirits who are torturing them, when the government isn't.

The evil spirits are a reality especially in these lands, people are worshipping them out of fear. They haven't heard of the loving God of the Bible. The weird thing is that He is only a prayer away thanks to Jesus. Naturally we have other spirits here also, but they are more laid back most of the time. They seem not to draw much attention to themselves. It's just another tactic. I've heard of people who prefer to sit in jail and witness to others about Christ, than to walk free. That's what happens when Jesus sets you free, you don't really care where you are or what people do to you, because you know then, that they can't touch your soul no matter what. It's a wonderful feeling, being set free by Jesus, there is nothing like it. And naturally it's more than just a feeling, it's a reality. There is deep comfort in the Lord, a peace that the world can't offer.

The works of man.

In a way it's wrong to single out the Koran, since all other books of other religions are just as much inspired by satan. I haven't yet seen a single one that elevates Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and the King of Kings. – satan wants us to elevate ourselves.

It matters nothing to satan if we don't believe in him, because he knows that his days are numbered. His main goal is to discredit everything and anything that the Lord Jesus has done and is doing. As long as we don't believe in the works of Christ, satan wins, and we are damned for all Eternity. Most religions only mention Jesus as a prophet. If Jesus was nothing but a prophet, then we'd all be damned to the fires of Hell.

On the roof of the mosques there is writing. I'm told it says: "God has no Son".

This is a statement straight from Hell (blasphemy), because if God has no Son (Jesus) then there can be no Salvation. In that case we are all doomed, because not one person on Earth is perfect or sin-free...not one. Not even I.

There is no need to "update" the Bible. It is just as up to date now as it ever was. You can't take portions of the Bible and build a religion around them. God warns us in His Word, not to change anything. If we do change the Bible it will become meaningless to God and us. Even if there is a hundred million of us standing by a religion we have made up, it will be totally meaningless. Even if we do it to "honor" the Lord it will be meaningless. Our biggest problem is our ego, pride and self indulgence. We want to party and have "fun" all the time. We want to live "in the flesh", just to fulfill our own lusts. We want nice cars, lot's of stuff and big houses. We seem to like to live for today with no regard for tomorrow. Let somebody else clean up the mess.

Then there's a frowning group of us who "think" that if we abstain ourselves from having "fun" that we will become "holier than thou" and deserve the "right" to a place in Heaven. This is also totally false. Even if you sit on a sharp stick all your life, your only reward will be a terrible pain up your "bottom”.

Jesus was nailed to a cross for your sins, he was pierced with a spear for your mistakes. He conquered death so that you might live as He rose from death.

Jesus still calls on everyone to receive His free gift of life. He will soon be back. Get your house in order, repent and receive Him into your heart so that you can be one of the blessed ones to escape death, through Jesus you can live forever. I tell you the truth.

Here's a song I often sing when I'm gigging with The Holy Rollers

On the road 2 my Fathers house
music&lyrics: Benjamin Antell

There's a road up yonder to my Father's house

It's the only road I care to walk

You show me your mansions

and you show me your cars

I'm sure they're fine

but I'm not impressed

Show me a heart as pure and kind

as the heart of Jesus Christ

Show me but one...

but you can't and I sigh

On the road to my father's house

I heard yesterday that someone had read the Koran and the Bible in a Christian church! What an incredibly crazy thing to do. The Koran has nothing to do with God, it's totally antichrist. Only an unbeliever or someone spiritually blind, could do something that crazy in a church of God.

The Koran or Qouran was written about 600 years AFTER the Bible! That is why Mohammed copied names, bits and bobs    from the Bible, but he distorted everything, since he was not a Christian.

The message of the Koran is DEATH to all non Muslim people!They just want to cut our heads off, turn on your TV if you don't believe me. Or go to an Arab country and watch them behead Christians or their own who have left Islam. They even kill little children and women in the name of Allah (an arab god). I just heard of a little boy who was shot by Muslims 8 times in his belly and left to die, because he would not deny that he had met Jesus Christ the Son of God. A little child...

I'm sure that there are friendly Muslims as well, but what happens when they are ordered to fight for Islam (or lose their heads), whom will they obey then? If a Muslim doesn't obey the powers that be, his own head might easily roll. The Quran is a very violent religion. All religions are evil, even Jesus hates them, read the New Testament and you'll see. We need a relationship with God through Jesus, and NO religions.

Why would somebody want to bring all that death an violence into the church?

Mohammed who was first married to a Catholic woman, made up Islam 600 hundred years after the Bible, was very mad at Jews and Christians, since they did not believe him. Christians to him were (basically) all non Jewish people. He didn't seem to understand that the Catholics are far from Christians, with their Idol worship (praying to saints) etc. Mohammed saw us all as one big happy family...what a blunder.

The Catholics actualy helped the Muslim's in the early days, but then they got into a bit of a chin wag, since both religions wanted Jesrusalem... Mohammed probably didn't understand that the world is full of people who don't know God from a rabbit, still he would call them Christians...since we all seem to have a sick need to label everybody.

Before I met God I was nothing, I had no faith in anything or anybody, I was like a leaf blowing in the wind, totally lost.

I know that there are true loving Christian Catholics too, even though the Catholic Church per se is an abomination to the Lord. Read the Book of Revelations if you don't believe me.

I have found that most people in the West who defend the Qouran, have never read the original version! Nobody even knows which one is the original. There are so many versions in Arabic of it today (more than 30 different Arabic Qurans).    Put aside the Tourist versions and the Internet versions, and check out the real bloody deal. If people would actually read it they would change their minds pretty quick.

Others defend Buddhists as being "close to God".

How can a Buddhist be close to God, when they don't even believe in God? Please tell me I'd really like to know, not. There is only ONE DOOR to God, and that is Jesus Christ. That's what the Holy Spirit has told me, and I believe Him. Why would the Spirit of Truth lie to me? Man this world is in a mess. It keeps getting worse all the time, mostly because nobody really stops to think. And those who encourage us to think for ourselves, just want us to think like they think they do!

Jesus Christ will receive any person who repents and turns to Him with a mournful heart. That's just the way He is, loving and forgiving.

Our consciense is a great tool for us to discern right from wrong with. We who are born again however, also feel in our spirit when something is wrong. We don't need to hear the voice of God, it's enough if we feel uneasy about something. Just get rid of it and get on with your life.

Did you know that statistically one in 45 Catholic priests is a Pedofile?

My rendering of the Pööp.

That's RELIGION for you. I personally think that Catholic priests who have molested children should be sent to labor camps for life, with no pardon. I think it's an insult to both God and the victims that they are allowed to buy their way out. What is going to stop them from molesting children again?

What an utterly shameful thing they have done. I will never respect the Pope as long as I live, since he stands behind his priests, the Pope is just as much a guilty pervert as the childmolesters themselves. Don't just buy everything the priests say, "compare it" with the Word of God. If it doesn't line up with the Bible, it isn't from the Lord. Pray, read the Bible and "listen". Ask the Lord whenever you are in doubt. Fast and pray for quicker answers, when you need to.

The Lord has been very good to me. When I have emphasized that I need an answer real quick, because the question is very important to me, He has graciously replied on the spot. Not always, but many times. How about that for a loving God? The churches need to kick out all priest who haven't accepted Christ as their personal Savior! They also need to rid themselves of all priests who don't have a personal calling from God, to do the job they are doing. Get rid of the gangsters. Those who truly repent shall always be forgiven. Just as the Father would forgive anyone, so are we supposed to forgive anybody who sins against us. If we don't forgive, then satan wins and after all, he is the one who is behind all evil on planet Earth.

This made me think, the Bible states that we will have new Heavenly bodies after we get to Heaven, wherever that is... Everything will be different there, for which I'm truly grateful. I know everybody will be happy there, sure it sounds like a a fairy tale but that was what the Earth was meant to be also El paradiso.

Before the flood, I believe that there were no predators on the Earth. The tigers etc. were all vegetarians. They had different teeth etc. Many of the carnivorous wild animals that were fossilized, were eating grass at the moment they died. I heard about this when I was a kid. The Earth was cursed due to sin, and everything hit the fan.

Here's a cool link I just found:

I've heard a few people say that they don't want to go to Heaven. I don't really understand how somebody can be that stubborn and dare I say dumb? To say no to something they know nothing about. I know God, and if He says it's a cool place, it's probably the mother of understatements. Besides there are only 2 alternatives, Heaven or Hell. After Hell on D-Day, people go to the lake of fire like garbage to die once more through fire.

I don't know about you but I'm looking forward to getting to know God even more. I want to know the secret of God, life, and everything. Since I've gotten to know God better I realize that I don't know him at all... It's weird, but there is just so much out there that our brains are way to small to take even a smidgen in.

God teaches me something new almost daily, but He's like a bottomless well. There is no Trinity, God is ONE!

The deeper you go, He's deeper still. There doesn't seem to be a bottom to the well of God. Last night He showed me stuff that I don't even dare mention, it's just too heavy. I don't know what to do with the info, I guess I'll have to wait and see.

Sometimes I think we have to hold back some stuff and think.

Will it benefit somebody or not? Will it hurt people or will it build them up? It's not always necessarily good to be blunt, like I often am since I just don't like to beat around the bush. Normally I like to be straight and just lay it all on the line, since life is short.

Somebody said once "on a sinking ship there are no Atheists", and it's very true. One of the passengers who left the Estonia liner before it sank, said that the last thing he saw was rows of people accepting Christ into their lives. They were saved in the last minutes of their earthly lives. Why leave it to the last minute? You can't know when your time is up, only the Father knows that. Fortune tellers haven't got a clue, they just don't know. In the Bible the Lord warns us not to go to them, and to listen to their curses. That is what their predictions are, that's why they "sometimes" come true. Be careful for what you wish for.

I think anyone who looks for God will find Him, because that is what He promised in His word (the Bible). God is only a prayer away, I promise. It took me a month or two to find Him, I just kept at it. If you knock, the door will be opened.

I have a close relative who claims to be a 50/50 Christian. Naturally it doesn't work that way. God would barf him out in a second (it's in the Bible). God doesn't like lukewarm Christians. It's all or nothing, no Hypocrites are allowed inside the Pearly Gates. You'd be honest with God if you knew His feelings for you.

Don't be afraid to try God,

Photo © Fred Skymberg

He doesn't really ask anything of us when we "try" Him. Only that we try our best to obey His Word the Holy Bible (our personal manual).

He is only asking us to "try" Him, to see that He is good. Some are afraid that God will send them to the North Pole or somewhere where they don't want to go. I can assure you of one thing, "if" God sends you there, after you have truly met the Lord, you will want to go there with all your heart. That's just how it works. And you will find happiness at the same time. There is nothing like getting an assignment from the Lord.

Being on a mission from God is cool. We are not all called to do missionary work. Some are supposed to be farmers, others store clerks, others again are supposed to be doctors etc. God needs all kinds of people to make the world go 'round. We are all however meant to share the Gospel in whatever way we can. We are supposed to save souls. That is something everyone is called to do. We mustn't be ashamed of the Good News. At the end of the day when we stand before the Throne, Jesus will be our defence attorney, as the prosecutor satan comes with his trumped up charges. We will have nothing to fear, if we have lived for the Lord.

Everybody builds some kind of career during their lifetime.

If it's planned by the Lord, we will be fine. If we have lived for ourselves all our lives, just doing what we thought was fun, plus some samaritan work to clear our conscience we are in deep dodo.

Most of our scientists live in a bubble, in a dream they've created because of their inability to open their minds. Sure we have figured out lots of things, but when the fundamentals are wrong, everything will eventually collapse like a deck of cards in the end.

A Few Reasons an Evolutionary Origin of Life Is Impossibleby Duane Gish, Ph.D.

Still nobody even knows how to truly calculate how old planet Earth is!

I find that very weird indeed. The scientists (many of them) seem to have a religious belief in Radiocarbon dating and many other things. Although the results are very random. Carbon dating seems to work somewhat in shorter time calculations, but when you go further back in time, the readings go off the wall. Still they cling to their results “as if” they were the truth. Even though there is proof that it is very inadequate.

Just for fun, if you have a fossil that you know has been fossilized during your lifetime, take it to a lab, and you'll see what crazy results they'll come up with.

Are there no bright minds out there, who can do proper math's???

Science might not be dead, but it sure smells weird.

In a stupid movie a guy was going to kill himself and his girlfriend so that they could be together in eternity. Something like that can “never” happen. Once we die we go to different places depending on if we are “born again” or not. Those who are born again and take the Lord seriously will have nothing to fear, the rest will be damned forever and have to die once more after court day in heaven. That's just the way it is. Everybody has been warned time and time again throughout the Bible. Death is no escape, no “easy way out” for anybody, since it doesn't end there! There is a price to be paid. Jesus paid for our sins so we could go free, having accepted His gift of Grace.

There is nothing "we" can do about "anything" after death, everything is up to God. That's why it's so important to tell people about Christ, without Him there can only be damnation. And in Him there is great happiness. To know that God is "here" is a wonderful thing. Besides He answeres prayers all the time, even seemingly impossible ones. I'm happy in the Lord! It's a wonderful feeling to be able to help somebody find God through Jesus, there is nothing like it. To be in God's presence every day is truly a blessing. Those who have never tried Jesus can never understand it. It's like really coming "home" for the first time. I've noticed that when I obey God, I become "stronger" in the Spirit. The anointing is usually automatically there when I pray for people these days. I'm very grateful to be blessed this way. It's important to obey when you feel in your spirit that you should pray for somebody etc. If you don't do it, the Lord might not use you the next time and this will cause you to dry up spiritually. We can become useless to the Lord if we don't obey. I'm not saying that He will abandon you, but you won't be under the anointing any more. I'd hate to lose what He has given me, so I will continue to obey.

From 1 Samuel 15:22
...To obey is better than sacrifice...

Amazing Grace was written by a captain of a slave ship in dire straits. God saved the ship in a fierce storm as the captain prayed for help. Afterward he returned to Africa and let the slaves go free.

That saved a wretch like me....

Was blind, but now, I see.

my heart to fear.

And Grace, my fears relieved.

How precious did that Grace appear...

Through many dangers, toils and snares...

we have already come.

T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...

and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good to me...

His word my hope secures.

He will my shield and portion be...

as long as life endures.

When we've been here ten thousand years...

bright shining as the sun.

We've no less days to sing God's praise...

"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,

That saved a wretch like me....

I once was lost but now am found,

Was blind, but now, I see.

Nearer my God to Thee was sung as the Titanic went down. When the ship began sinking, some born again Christians left the life boats in order for unsaved people to leave. Since the Christians didn't have anything to lose they stayed aboard holding hands and singing Nearer my God to Thee as the orchestra played. So the story is told by a few survivors of the damned ship.

Nearer my God to Thee

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to thee.

E'en though it be a cross,

That raiseth me

Still all my song shall be,

Nearer, my God, to thee

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to thee.

Though like the wanderer,

The sun gone down

Darkness be over me,

My rest a stone,

Yet in my dreams I'd be,

Nearer, my God, to thee

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to thee.

There let the way appear,

Steps unto heaven

All that Thou sendest me,

In mercy given

Angels to beckon me,

Nearer, my God, to thee

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to thee.

Then with my waking thoughts

Bright with Thy praise

Out of my stony griefs

Bethel I'll raise

So by my woes to be,

Nearer, my God, to thee

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to thee.

Or if on joyful wing,

Cleaving the sky

Sun, moon, and stars forgot,

Upward I fly

Still all my song shall be,

Nearer, my God, to thee

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to thee!

Dipping a baby in water is not going to

give it access to Heaven when it gets older.

Photo © Benjamin Antell

A baby automatically has access to Heaven, but when it grows up and gets a will of it's own, then it/he/she will have to decide which road to take, and get baptized in water and Spirit.

The baptism of infants is just another silly man made ritual. Everybody has to decide for themselves if they are for or against Christ, there is no way around it. If a baby dies, it goes to Heaven, there's no doubt in my mind that it is so. But when a gown up who does not know Christ dies, he goes to Hell – either he is dipped in a bowl as an infant or not.

Hmmm, let's see Heaven or Hell? That's why it's so important that you decide today, where you want to go. Because you can't work your way to Heaven, nobody can. And if you're not for Christ you will suffer the consequence. It's your choice. The bummer with Hell is that you'll have no say there, it'll be a terrible place where you have absolutely no say about anything. Nobody can imagine the horrors of Hell.

200 million Christians in 60 countries are subject to persecution!

The British Secret Service MI6 in London, published an alarming report in the magazine Sunday Express Jun 19, 2007 revealing that some 200 million Christians in 60 countries around the world are at risk of suffering persecution according to CNA. In Sudan thousands have been massacred. Iraq, Turkmenistan, b, Tajikistan, North Korea, China, Ethiopia, Nigeria and Uganda are other countries where Christians are heavily persecuted.

North Korea have sent 50 thousand Christians to concentration camps, just like HITLER!!!

China has sent 40.000 to concentration camps!

Palestinian Christians are also in trouble due to Islam in the Middle East.

A weird story.

A friend of mine was asked to sing at a church in Vasa, Finland, since he is a Christian he was told NOT to mention God or Jesus! When he asked why, he was told that there might be people in church who don't believe in God, and they did not wish to offend them. Sounds like a story from a lunatic asylum, but it's true, I heard the conversation. What's the point in going to church if you don't believe in God?

I mentioned HK (not the sausage factory) in my art catalogue MANIFESTAVISION back in 1975.

Some were offended when I told the story of a Hare Krishna dude who beat up a Christian Jew who was handing out leaflets. The reason why I mentioned it was due to the fact that, only the same week the leaders of Hare Krishna claimed that they would to hesitate to use nuclear bombs if necessary to convert the world to Hinduism.

Anybody who talks someone else out of trying the Lord is in dire straits. I wish people would think before they condemn themselves and others. It often happens out of ignorance as well, although ignorance is no excuse.

A really crazy example.

Another friend of mine who's become a Buddhist, went out into the desert with his guru. He said that his Guru was going to explain to him what Christianity is about. A Buddhist guru doesn't know the first thing about Christianity, if he did he would be a Christian instead! How can a man without spiritual knowledge claim to know something about the spiritual world? A guru is duped by evil spirits and demon’s and knows nothing about God or eternity..

I had read the Bible partly before I met the Lord, but I didn't understand anything, except the obvious Ten Commandments etc. I only read it as a book, and you can't really do that. When you have the Holy Spirit as your Teacher, then you understand the scriptures for the first time. The Bible is not just a book, and the first time you read it you will see one thing and the second time something else, and the third time...

It's not about the intellect, it's about Spirit, what God reveals to you at the time you read it. God will reveal one thing today and another thing tomorrow. You can read the same chapter today, and the Holy Spirit can point out something that you have never seen before, and then tomorrow He might point out something completely different that you did not see yesterday, even though it's the same chapter. It feels to me like the Holy Spirit is playing around with a supernatural flashlight or something, it's really remarkable. Every day God teaches me something new through my Helper the Holy Spirit. It just happens since I'm constantly seeking His council. This world doesn't interest me all that much anymore, sure it's beautiful and interesting in some ways, but the more I learn to know God, the rest fades. There is nothing on Earth that holds a candle to my Lord. He is my main Man, my Everything. Without Him I'd be lost, like I was...a total fool, blind as a bat heading for disaster...eyes wide open shut.

Don't try drugs, if you haven't so far!

Drugs just mess up your brain and they will eventually destroy your life. Drugs are only a way for people to try to escape their problems. Drugs don't work, I know hundreds of people who have tried, not one of them walked away from drugs unhurt.

Smart drugs?

Many of my friends went crazy and killed themselves, others died of young age due to complications that occur when you mess around with drugs. Some of the ones who are still alive, are pretty much like Zombies. Many of them have BIG plans and sit around thinking about the same things they thought about in 1970, nothing happens, they haven't done a thing in their entire lifetime. Soon they will die from their drug abuse without having done anything creative their entire lives. I wouldn't call that living. Some get their life totally wrecked or even die, the first time they try drugs!

When God's power (the anointing) falls on me it somtimes feels a bit like like the high I used to get from alcohol, but it's much,    stronger, and I have a clear head with no hangover. If my friends would have tried God instead of drugs, probably all of them would be alive and healthy today. They would have interesting lives, and they probably would have highs through the Holy Spirit (the Comforter) that are greater than the ones they got through simple drugs!

Drug abuse is just one of the devils tricks

to turn people away from God.

The old devil (satan) tries to copy everything that God does, but he's more like King Midas (from the fairy tale) in reverse. Everything King Midas' touched turned to Gold, but everything the devil touches turns to rubbish. Through the use of drugs he can induce something that is a very bleak copy of what God can do for you. If you would try God, you'd have NO need whatsoever for drugs. God can give you all the highs you need, all He asks for in return is your heart. I'm not talking about basing your life on feelings, like some Christians claim. The highs I get when I'm with the Lord are only natural, because God is full of supernatural power, and when I'm close to Him I get saturated by it. It is the most wonderful thing in the world, and I love Him for sharing.

He is here in my studio right now, and I love Him so much. I wish with all my heart that you would get to know Him too. He just came I gotta go, later.

Everyone should see THE PASSION, by Mel Gibson.

Sure it's a violent film, but I know that Jesus was treated even more badly in reality! People can be very cruel, especially if satan grips their hearts. The crucifixion of Christ was the result of a spiritual war.

I see no other reason for all the violence. The hate that drove the Jewish priests and the mob to crucify Christ was supernatural. I don't think that any "sane" person can watch the movie without realizing that there is more to it than meets the eye. Christ paid for our sins in full, because we are unable to do so ourselves. Without Christ there can be no afterlife. Without the blood of Christ, we would all be doomed.

Some call me a fundamentalist,

because I'm a true follower of Christ.

I don't care what you call me. Atheists, scientists and other "religious" people are just as much fundamentalists as anyone else. Anyone who blindly subscribes to an idea or a religion without proof is a fundamentalist. Most people just choose an idea to follow, and speak of it as being the truth, when it's nothing of the sort. They often say “I think for myself”, even when they really don’t.

I'm simply a follower of Christ. I would not follow Him if I didn't know Him, because religion stinks. A relationship has nothing to do with religion! Companionship with Christ on a daily basis means everything to me. Through Christ I can speak to God directly, I don't need to go through any priest or nothing, I can go directly to God's throne and say what is on my mind. God loves us so much that He takes the time to listen, I have no idea how He manages to do so with billions of other people praying at the same time, but the main thing is that He can pull it off and He does. I'm not at all interested in religion or theories, I'm only interested in the truth. Nobody else holds the whole truth other than Christ. No other "gods" or spirits have ever done anything positive for me, and they can't. Sure satan could make me prosper here on Earth, but what good would that money be to me in the afterlife? It would be totally meaningless. Get behind me satan.

Bad memories are like chewing gum in your hair.

My past is crammed with bad memories and deceit. Stuff like that can easily drag or slow you down. Bad memories are like old chewing gum in your hair. It's important to forgive and forget ASAP. Wallowing in the past can destroy your future. I've fallen victim to my old sorrows a few times, it's an ugly business. When I pray to God to help me forget, it normally helps for a while, then I need to pray again after a while. Although I've tried my best to put everything behind me, the snake of deceit creeps up on me from time to time. I decided yesterday to really stand my ground against the past. I'm not going to let the past hound me any more. It's a bit like sin, naturally there is sin in my past too, but I've managed to leave it be, since God has promised in His Word that He will forget our sins if we ask Him for forgiveness and repent. Being forgiven is a real high.

My conscience is clean and God has given me a clean slate, now it's up to me what I use it for. I had an uncle that told me that "it can't be that easy". But it really is! Since we can't do a thing ourselves to get to Heaven. All we need to do is receive the gift prepared for us by Jesus Christ, the ruler of the Universe. He has paid our ticket in full with His life.

Would you die for your friends?

Jesus died for complete strangers...He gave His life for you. What a guy! He knew that He was and is the only way to God. What a bummer to have to die for a bunch of dorks. Jesus just forgave everybody, even those who took His life.

Pride never entered His life while He did the walk. And now He has the name above all other names, God has raised Him up as King. Every knee will bow for Him as He returns to Earth in bodily form again.

I urge you to receive Him now before it's too late, you don't know if you live 2morrow. If you haven't received Him into your heart before you die, you will never see Heaven, no matter how "good" you have been, it's just not possible. Jesus is the only door, He told me so in person and I believe Him. Don't take my word for it, try Him and He will reveal Himself to you.

Don't tell God to push off until you've tried Him!

Photo © Fred Skymberg

At least give Him a chance, that's all He asks, He wants to prove Himself to you. If you are honest in trying Him, He will not let you down. I would not be online writing about the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit if I didn't know God. Why would I? I'd have no reason in the world to do so. I'm not in it for the money or anything trivial like that. I'm just doing what the Father asks me to do, to tell you about Christ (the only door to God).

Since I received Christ into my life, I changed into another person in an instant, the old me disappeared. The selfish bastard in me left the building, and I felt that I had a clean slate. Naturally I'm no angel (who is?) but the Lord has been scrubbing my brain for a long time now, most of the grime is gone...or is it.

I know I'll never be perfect, but I'm working on it.

Give your money/help to the poor, there are thousands of organizations working all over the world, giving thirsty people water and food, others are building shelters etc. Don't forget to try God (it's nothing for sissies).You have to mean what you say, and say what you mean when you talk to God. He will not take any nonsense. You are either in or out. You will never regret receiving Christ into your life, I know this from experience.

I've mentioned Iggy Pop before, talking about love as being overrated. People that don’t know God say silly things.

Photo © Fred Skymberg

I don't hold grudges or anything like that, because God told me ages ago to “forgive and forget but”… I think I understand Mr. Pop in some ways.

During my lifetime, most...if not everybody who have claimed that they "love me", have let me down at one time or far. I guess people are like that. Most people will "forget" what they have said after they have gotten what they wanted, I guess most people are like that. This is certainly my experience, and I've been around the block a few times. I met God in 1975. I'm not bitter or anything, I'm just stating the facts.

At the same time I do believe that it's important to say "I love you" to people "if" you really mean it. I would not use the phrase lightly though. God is different from us. He will never let anybody down, so don't feel bad when people turn their backs on you, it's just human nature. God has never let me down, and I don't blame Him when things go wrong, why should I? We often put ourselves in weird situations, we mostly have ourselves to blame. Greed or want is often the reason, we want more than we can afford. It's much better to ask God to show us His will for our lives, that will spare us most our grief. This world is in a mess and it's going to Hell.

That's just how it is, we (man) are greedy and that is what put us in the boat were in. We rob the poor countries of the world, steal their gold etc. and even kill the people. Shell Oil hung 12 black men once (I think it was in the 90's), just for criticizing Shell when they dumped waste all over the place. I witnessed the hanging on Swedish television, and nobody cared. Stuff like this goes on daily in the world and it's mostly hush hush. I remember a small tribe who found gold on their land. Naturally they were evicted by some large corporation and some of them were even murdered. We have a lot to be ashamed of, but most people are too greedy to even understand it, or care, sad but true.
