I'm absolutely not telling this story to put Mulims down, the guy could have been from any religion! It is however a true story.

When I worked at a hotel i Sweden in the 70's a Muslim man checked in.

I could tell that he was on drugs and drunk as a skunk. He'd flown in from London. For some reason the social services promised to pay his bills. After a few hours they called me up and asked if he had arrived. I said "yes". They asked me if everything was ok, I told the the man was really drunk.

The woman on the phone said "that's impossible he is a Muslim, they don't use alcohol"... I could only repeat what I had said, and that the man even wanted to have sex with me. Naturally I turned him down.

The man became very hostile when I turned him dow, he cursed and checked out. He was very dissappointed with Stockholm since he couldn't get any sex. He went back to the United Kingdom after just a few hours...

The guy "could" have been from ANY religion!

Old newspaper clipping.

I just want to tell the story because we often assume too much! Just because a person in a Pentecostal, Lutheran, fiherman's friend or whatever, we can't know for sure WHO they are before we get to know them and see what lifestyle they lead.

A title means nothing.

No "religious" person is happy or really honest! It's when we get to know God on a personal basis that's we become like Him! He wants to be our friend!!!

Jhn 15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

There's a bad apple in every crate!

It "can" take an awful long time to get to know some people. There are those who are extremely manipulative, and know exactly what to say in any given circumstance. Some are masters of deception.

We must always be on our toes, and not judge people too quickly.

God tells us not to trust in men, but to trust in Him alone. I have found that to be the best route. Anything you say can basically be used against you in manipulative ways, so it's best to say as little as possible.

The cop's say the same thing when they arrest people: "anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law".

I wish I could remember that in every day life... It would simplify life dramatically. Unfortunately for me, I often trust people, and end up paying dearly for it. It's so easy to slip up sometimes.

"It is better to trust in the Lord Than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord Than to put confidence in princes" (Psalm 118:8,9).

God is Gud in Swedish.

I have to see lots of people all the time since I'm an intercessor (one who prays for others), thank God for those who seek Him with open hearts. They are wonderful people, and they will go far in life if they take God seriously.

PS. When I met God personally for the first time in 1975, He told me to pray for people, to work in deliverance, art and music. That is my only reason for doing it! I always want to obey the Father, because He makes me happy, He gives me a peace and supernatural joy that the world know's nothing of.

All trough the ages people in all countries have worshipped the wrong things...

© Benjamin Antell

Stones, pieces of wood, the Pope, Maria, sex, money, the devil, demons and their religions of all kinds. Many still do it. Even people who call themselves Christians often worship the wrong things. No matter how much the Creator warns us, we keep on doing it!

I mentioned Maria worship on a site, and people went crazy.

Jesus warns us in the Bible and tells us NOT to worship her. He knew it would happen, that's why it's in the Bible.

Luk 11:27-28 ...a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed [is] the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.

But Jesus said, on the contrary, blessed [are] they that hear the word of God, and take care not to violate it...

My critics are mostly people who haven't got a clue who Holy Spirit is! Without His aquaintence it's impossible to know God the Father.

Some of them don't even know that He is a person and they actually believe that they have received Him when they were baptised as infants. This is NOT true.

Infant baptism is NOT even biblical!

This is something the so called "church fathers" invented in their stupidity AD 400 sometime. To call it a sacrament is foolish. God calls man made rituals withcraft.

1 Samuel For rebellion [is as] the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness [is as] iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from [being] king.

(blessed [are] they that hear the word of God, and take care not to violate it...)

(I got one really weird comment regarding infant baptism. One guy compared it to gold teeth... Many people get dental miracles in church these days. Gold teeth is a miracle from God and has nothing to do with doctrines of any kind. Infant baptism on the other hand is a man made ritual that has nothing to do with God. To call it a sacrament is to violate the Word of God).

Some people are disgusted with me, just like they were with my Lord Jesus Christ. Truth is always a sting in the flesh. I mean. look what happened to Jesus, they ended up killing Him because they could not stand to hear the truth. Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth, ironic innit?

I believe that we are living in the Last Days, we are the Laodicean church (the last church in the Book of Revelation), luke warm and disgusting to the Lord. He says that He would rather that we were HOT or COLD, but since we are good for nothing luke warn He will spew us from His mouth, yuk!

Very few of us will make it to God's kingdom because we ignore God's will.

People asked me (in one church only) what my motives are when I teach the Word of God and pray for people.

I just want to do my Father's will, that is my only agenda. I don't have any other motives. I never liked standing in the lime light, still don't if I'm doing it for "me". I don't want any fancy titles or worldy power.

But to stand in obedience to the Lord is wonderful even though it can be a bit scary at times. He makes me talk about very touchy subjects most of the time.

God wants us to clean up our act and rid ourselves of the demon of Pride and Darkness from the world. We are to live in the world but not of it.

The demon behind all religion is Pride.

That is why people go ballistic most of the time, if you mention what they are doing contrary to the will of God. The truth is a pain in the neck for most people.

Phone rings...


Hello, I'd like to make a reservation.


I'd like a room with a view…

Do you know Lord Jesus Christ?

Er, no, not really…I did see The Passion!

In order to reserve a room here, you have to know the king.


No, Lord Jesus Christ.

How could I get to know somebody who died 2000 years ago?

Oh that's easy, He rose from the dead.


Yes, Mr. Holy Spirit has been acting on behalf of Jesus Christ on Earth ever since.

How do I get in touch with Him?

You have to clean up your life first.
This can only be accomplished through the Grace of God.
Jesus has died in your place, for all your iniquity and sin.
All you have to do is ask Jesus Christ for forgiveness and for Him to enter your heart and wash you clean with His blood which is a super detergent!

Enter my heart?

He will do it if you ask Him.

Where can I get a hold of Him?

Simply talk to Him, tell Him you are sorry for all the mess in your life and that you need His grace and forgiveness. If you are sincere, it will be given to you.

Oh, is that all?

Not really. After you have received forgiveness,
you have to change you entire life as proof that you believe in Christ.

My whole life?


But what about my interests, boating, women, clubbing, drinking…

If that is more important to you than knowing God, then that is your choice.
You will find the requirements for joining in the Bible.

In the Holy Bible?


But I tried reading it, but it was filled with wars and weird rules and customs.

You are talking about the Jewish laws etc.

Yes, I guess...

The Jews are a special people and they have their festivities which bring them closer to God.
As a gentile you don't need to take part in the Jewish feasts. The only things you need not to do are mentioned in the Commandments and the New Testament plus that you should not drink blood or eat strangled animals.

Yuk, who would want to do that anyway?

There are people…
The most important thing is to love God with all your heart and then all people around you.
Deu 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Do you mean I have to love my idiot next door neighbor?

To call somebody an idiot is a serious offense, we must never do that.
Jesus died for your neighbor also! He died for all men on Earth!

Oh really?

Yes, really!

What about my room…?

Receive the gift of life through the sacrifice of Lord Jesus, and then ask to meet Holy Spirit,
He will explain everything about God and His Word to you.
If you do this, you don't need to call me back, everything is paid for by the Lord Jesus.

It's free?

Yes, all He wants is your life.

Wait a minute, my life?

Yes, that is the requirement.


Well, When you met Holy Spirit, He will tell you of the Lord's assignment for your life.

My assignment?

Yes, the Lord has already made plans for you, actually from the beginning of creation.

But, what about my job?

You don't have to worry about work, the Lord will keep you busy as long as you listen to Holy Spirit.

What about money?

That is not your concern either, the Lord will pay for everything He asks you to do.
You only need to obey His wishes.

Sounds like I need faith.

It will be given to you.

What will my friends think?

As you walk with Jesus, you will know who your true friends are!
A true friend will always stay by your side, no matter what.
But you must also remember that those who live in darkness often fear the light.
Those who are born again can't really mingle with unbelievers all that much,
because what has darkness in common with the light?



Those who are slaves of darkness will try their best to pull you with them,
this is why it's imperative that you fix your eyes on Jesus Christ.
If you look back you might fall like Lot's wife did.


He was a man in the book of Genesis in the Old Testament. Check him out...


Talk to Jesus and everything will be taken care of!

Let me first state one thing: being a true Christian is FUN!

Some people who don't know the word of God, think that they will get to the heavens even if they don't move a muscle during their lifetime.

Jukka Tolonen Sandö, Vasa, Finland 1971 (he is a Christian now!) © Ben Antell

One guy told me that if we are saved, we can sit and sleep with our ticket to Heaven in your hand, and still expect to see Heaven. This is pure nonsense!

We are saved by grace but that does not mean that we can ignore the Word of God!

Jesus tells us to REPENT, for the kingdom of the heavens is at hand.

© Benjamin Antell

God has given us many rules to live by! They are all listed in the New Testament, some even in the OT which He gave to the Jews. Here's is a little list of people who will NEVER see Heaven, saved or not:

1Cr 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate (homosexuals), nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

No swindlers or liars will ever see the kingdom of God!

Jam 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

This is why we can't behave like the children of the world! We have to pick up the morals that God teaches us through His Word (Jesus).

If we want to get close to God, we have to get rid of everything that holds us back.

© Benjamin Antell

I asked Holy Spirit to tell me what was holding me back, and when He let me know the truth, I dropped everything that was in the way. After this my life became a truly wonderful sojurn.

We must not love anything in the world, if we do it will become our God and we will become fornicators. There can be no compromise in our lives! We can't be luke warm, we have to burn for the Lord and our calling!

A result of my clean-up was that God anointed me even more. Now I feel His tangible prescense "all the time", woohooo! It's so great!

© Benjamin Antell

I obey Jesus because I love Him.

God has been good to me, and I have never been mad at Him for anything. I know that all good things come from Him, since He is love. All the bad things that happen are mostly my own fault or a result of generational curses.

Some really silly people think that I obey God out of fear, this is not true!

Heathens often worship their demons (demi gods) out of fear, but Adonai is love and Jesus is the only God that can save a soul. I love God and I obey Him because I am truly grateful that He has saved me. I live and love to obey the Lord!


Don't let the devil, tradition and religion fool you!
Uncle Benz, (AKA thalonen on youtube)

See you on Facebook!

If you would like to try Jesus for yourself, say this prayer from your heart, it will change your life! God loves you, just as He loves every man who walks this Earth!

Rom 10:9 because if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus [as] Lord, and shalt believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved:

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

If you said the prayer, you are saved! For we are save by grace and nothing else, we can come as we are! Now thank Jesus for saving you. Welcome to the family! Check out god.TV on TV or the Internet, it is full of good spiritual guidance. is very good too. Your life will change for the better!

(Naturally, not all preachers are good, just because they are on god.TV), use your brain as you watch, compare what they say, to see if it lines up with God's Word! Another very important thing: we should never criticise our sisters and brothers outside the church! If we feel that we have to correct somebody, it HAS to happen in church and not publicly. We should never launder our differences before the world, that is stupid according to Gods word!

There are some prosperity preachers whose messages are unsound.

God didn't intend for all of us to become filthy rich on Earth. Naturally, there might be some generous people on Earth, who may be blessed in this way, since God treats us all individually. But I don't believe for a second, that all Christians are meant to roll in cash...simply for our own pleasures. That would be pointless and silly.

I believe that we are supposed to help each other and be generous.

I don't believe that we should hoard our money in the bank, but to put it to good use. God will bless those who think of others, like the famous painter Van Gogh did. He gave his money etc. to the poor miners of Borinage, where he worked as an evangelist (between paintings). This is another fact, which is rarely (if ever) mentioned in art books due to our atheistic society.

Don't look down on rich people (or anybody else), God blesses whom He pleases.

Here's another side to prosperity: Job the incredibly rich man.

We read in the Old Testament how he was tested by the devil and lost everything. Because he was faithful to the Lord, everything was restored to him + he became filthy rich :-) Why? Because God blessed him.

Rom 10:13 for, Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

Naturally, your life needs to change, if you've received Christ. We can't go on living in sin, like we did before we met God. But anyway, everything starts with the little prayer. It has worked for me and many of my friends. Let God take over, and don't fret, He will take care of you, trust the Lord!

You are now ready to receive Mr. Holy Spirit (if He hasn't already descended on you)! He is a person, sent by God to be your Helper. Spirit filled born again Christians can pray for you to receive Him. Your life will never be the same!

I call Him Mr. Holy Spirit sometimes, because most people don't seem to know that He is a person as well as Spirit.

Holy Spirit will give you a prayer language, so if you feel like there's something bubbling inside you, just open your mouth and speak whatever sounds Holy Spirit is giving you. The prayer language is called "tongues", it can be a Heavenly language or an earthly one, it all depends. I have many different ones, I've noticed that it changes a lot, from time to time. One Finnish girl that I prayed for received english as her prayer language, go figure.

Some people even claim that you can't pray or talk to Holy Spirit, I beg to differ. God the Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit are ONE, so you can pray to any one of the three.

But it's logical to pray to the Father in Jesus' name. When I pray for people, Holy Spirit and I have an ongoing dialogue during prayer. We speak to each other all day, but even more intensely during prayer, since He then directs me.

Mar 16:17 And these signs shall accompany them that believe: in my name shall they cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues;

Tts 3:5 not by works [done] in righteousness, which we did ourselves, but according to his mercy he saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of Holy Spirit,

I'm not trying to put anyone down with my Write, 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, and could in fact be set free in Christ.
