Peace,

The artist Michael Jackson died at 50 years of age.

Some say "nobody lives forever" but that is exactly what we do, if we receive Jesus into our lives, and live for Him!

Those who do not live for Christ will end up in Hell, that's only natural because nothing unclean will ever enter Heaven. Jesus makes us clean because of His sacrifice. He died in our place for our sins, that's why when God looks at a Christian He actually sees His Son Jesus Christ!

I'm not saying this to frighten anybody, because anybody on this planet can receive Jesus as their savior. It doesn't matter if you have killed a hundred people with a sledge hammer, God still loves you and wants to save you. I know it sounds crazy, but God is love. He will forgive anybody who truthfully asks for His forgiveness.

We are all rotten to the core. If you think that you are a good person, then you are an idiot. Nobody except God is truly good.

Luke 18:19 "Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good-except God alone.

A CAUSE WORTH LIVING FOR -

DAVID 'PACKIE' HAMILTON


At 22 the young Loyalist David Hamilton was one of those locked in a powerful cycle of violence from which release seemed impossible. Being a Loyalist meant knowing first-hand what - and usually who - was responsible behind breaking news: a bomb here, a hold-up there. His own barrister told David that he was lucky to get only 11 years! Even prison is different for terrorists: they have ways of pressurizing their inmates and gaolers (jailers). Yet even in that darkest place, God was waiting for David, whose story details his journey into freedom. This updated edition has been illustrated with black and white photos and includes the point of view of David's second wife, Sharon.

Rom 10:9 That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will 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. Your life will change for the better!

Rom 10:13 for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will 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 stares 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 the 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!

The 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 the 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.

Added some pix...

Peace,

Hi I'm back from my trip.

It was great to be in Stockholm, I really love that city and the people. The spiritual situation was a lot colder than back in the 70's.

School's out!

I was handing out my own tracts about salvation through Christ many people turned me down. It took me many hours to distribute a little bunch of the pamphlets, that would only have taken minutes in the 70's.

When I informed them that the chicken on the cover was my own, a few people decided to receive it... Some pulled their hand back when they saw "GUD" (God) on the cover, they reacted as if the tract was on fire :-(

I also had a sign with me that said "If you like, we can pray for you". I had a friend with me on the first day. I only got to pray with one lady on Odenplan on the first day but it was great.

Vineyard

Later I also got to pray for some other people at the Vineyard church. The meeting there was wonderful, the praise music brought tears to my eyes because the anointing was strong. The style (which is of no concern to me) was rock/pop.

Many seem afraid of God these days.

I guess a part of it has to do with the conduct of spiritually dead priests who don't know Christ. After all, there are evil men out there who "pretend" to be sent by God, but actually are disciples of satan. There are many ordained priests who do not believe in God, they are only in it for the money etc.

But thank God not all priests are evil :-)

Many of my friends are evangelists and pastors who love God, and have dedicated their lives into serving Him and those around them. They have very small wages, some earn nothing at all, it's hard to understand "how" they survive. "By the grace of God" is a common answer.

I preached at Bergskyrkan in Hässelby for two days.

The meetings went well, and the Holy Spirit moved many. I sang and played some songs of praise on my acoustic guitar and "Happy", a boogie that i wrote after finding a fine church once (Kvevlax Missionskyrka). Then I prayed for everybody who wanted intercessory prayer.

The Swedish pastor and I also met some latino evangelists that held meetings in the same church. We got to bless each others and had a good time with the Lord. My latino brothers plan to start a latino church in Finland!

Afterwards pastor George Kjellberg and I attended one of their services in Spanish.

Woman gets saved!

What a meeting!

Pastor George get's blessed by Pastor Rogério as interpreter Liber rejoices :-)

Everybody had tambourines and they used them. They welcomed us four times during the service hugging us like we were long lost friends. They made us feel as if we were a part of their family, God bless them!

Yo!

I'm going to Stockholm now, so I might no be able to write before the 17th when I'm back. I'm ashamed to say that I don't own a Macbook...

Take care, Ben

Peace,

It's finally summer here in the Arctic north!

I can never get used to this cold and dark country. I've lived in Finland since 1980, and it's cold, dark and gloomy most of the time. People kill themselves because of the dark and depressing circumstances. The suicide rate is very height in this country. I guess atheism plays a major roll in the depressive state Finns seem to be stuck in.

I mean, if we a descendants of apes, then what are we living for?

I can never thank God enough for slapping me around, and showing me that He is real and that He truly cares about us. Sure there's disaster all around us, but that's only a logical result of our rebellion, and cold heartedness towards each other.

When I was a kid I lived Down Under, mostly around Brisbane, but also in New South Wales. Australia was a nice country, with fruit trees all over the place and cool beaches. I loved every minute of it except for school.

Many teachers were absolute Hitler's.

When they came to school in the mornings they often beat us, because they were angry at their wives or whatever. They pretended that it was for our own good...bastards. I have forgiven them though, but they certainly darkened my towel.

Sometimes I pretended to be sick so that I wouldn't have to go to school. I used to like school, but the teacher put me off. As a result I started hating school instead. I wish they wouldn't employ any idiot with a degree like they tend to do.

There is not much justice in this world, people in power will push your buttons as long as you live. That's why it's great to know God. When He fills your heart, all these worldly problems disappear. It's true, nothing much bothers me any more.

Most of my problems are unimportant in the BIG picture, so I don't think much about them.

I try to focus more on God. I love to see Him heal people when I pray for them. It makes me feel so small to see and realize what He is doing. And what an enormous impact one little prayer might have. For instance, you lead a person to God. A few weeks later her whole family is saved, and she is working in the ministry, leading hordes of people to the Lord! Talk about snow ball FX.

This week end I'll be going to Stockholm, to pray for people and preach some. I can't wait to see what God is going to do! I'll be there for about 2 weeks, if nothing weird happens. You never know with God, every day is a miracle in it's own right.

I'm not trying to put anyone down with my Write, I'm just trying to convey what God has put on my heare. 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 set free in Christ.
