Israel - Kina

"Pastor Paul is one of a multitude of Chinese Christian leaders who has a burning desire to see his nation converted and brought into abundant life in this world and everlasting life in the world to come."

"One day a fellow pastor urged him to go to the All Nations Prayer Convocation in Jerusalem lead by Tom Hess. At first he thought, “Why go to Jerusalem? I’m working in the harvest field in China, and that’s where my heart is.” But he attended the conference in 2008 and his heart was stirred. However, when he felt God prompting him to come to Jerusalem every year, he said he felt shocked. “I will obey,” he said, “but I don’t know why.”"

While journaling, I apologized to the Lord for thinking about all I had to do. I had actually stopped writing in my journal so I could make a list of errands. This is what He said:

“Your days are filled with things ‘to do’ and it is good for you to be organized, but remember Who made time. If you want to make the most of what time you’ve been given, come and spend some of it with Me first. I will bless and multiply what you need as I Am the Author of time!

“There are things you do and things that happen which are out of your control, and these steal your time. When you start your day with Me, I can impart My timing, answers and direction. Stop chasing your tail like a silly dog that doesn’t know better! Come and allow Me to take you higher. I will give you what you need for not only this day but also what is needed for the days ahead. I Am a good Abba. I will help you in all your ways; I will direct your path.”

Creative Expression – Guilty For What You Do And What You Don’t Do

Debra skriver om att göra upp med skuldkänslor i denna bloggpost. Nära kopplat till skuld som drivkraft för det vi gör, kan "plikt" vara.  Svenskar sägs ju vara ett pliktroget folk och det är inget fel i det. Men när plikt blir det som driver oss tror jag det blir  problematiskt. Något att fundera över, inte minst i advents- och juletid då många "måsten" känns viktiga att uppfylla. Kanske är de egentligen inga "måsten" utan går alldeles utmärkt att strunta i  Våga tänka nytt! Pröva att välja bort det som bara känns betungande! Och skapa på det sättet utrymme för det som du kanske inte ens visste du och dina nära och kära behövde.  Det är så lätt att bli fartblind så att vi missar det som verkligen är viktigt.
Gemenskap, samtal,  "bara vara" - ja, det finns mycket som vi riskerar att gå miste om när vi springer för fort i ekorrhjulet. Pröva att springa lite långsammare, ta en annan väg eller gör något annat för att bryta med de plikter och skuldkänslor som bara stjäl kraft. Sök och hitta vilan, Guds shalom i ditt liv!         

Guds välsignelse!

Creative Expression – Guilty For What You Do And What You Don’t Do

by riversofeden1
Guilt Guilt Guilt 
Well that’s the question folks. Do you ever do things out of guilt and then you feel awful, compromised, like crap? When I do something because I feel guilty – wanting to be accepted, promoted, or some such thing, I get pulled into a whirlpool of mixed emotions. I chastise myself for trying to produce results rather than letting things play out in time and letting things happen in due course. I take the reins and do it. Of course, it (the desire I am hoping to achieve) may initially work out BUT trust me, it will backfire eventually. Guilt should never be the driving force in any relationship or situation. Never. Never. 

For me, doing things out of guilt for people was a biggie. It was never about them, but it is about me. Why did I do that? Well, to be quite honest, because I did not trust the Lord to do for me what I could not do, so I decided to work it up and do it myself. Then I felt guilty for doing things out of guilt because I know it won’t produce the desire that I wanted it to produce. There is an answer to it all. Glance over yesterday’s blog, okay? 

Guilt is like going round and round in a whirlpool. Just wanted to repeat that for myself to let it settle in me. I feel guilty for what I don’t do and guilty for what I do. It’s a never-ending battle that actually is a by-product of a wounded heart. Somehow guilt has made me feel that I lack something. It makes me feel like I am not enough and I have to buy my way into situations or peoples’ lives. Have you ever been there? Oh by the way, buying your way in is not with money or it could be. It could be through control, manipulation or even promises to enhance relationships or situations. For instance, I can buy presents flattering people so that they feel wanted and do more. I can take people places that they would not be able to afford themselves because I have the money and they don’t. There are numerous ways to move in guilt. 

I have decided to take a new approach. It’s called trust. Trusting God to make a way for me. Not cliché. Not some easy fix. It is reality. The overriding flow of guilt in my life flowed through my decisions. Guilt was behind many decisions I have made in times past. Suddenly, I see. Do you? Guilt robs you of an inner sense of calm, peace, and an awareness that you are enough whether things work out as you expected them to work out or not.
Guilt Definition 
Here’s a great one by Paul Ellis – The Cure for Guilt. Read it when you have time. It helped me see some things. We really need each other in the Body of Christ. Sometimes I am feeling things deep inside of me that I can’t express. I try, but the words don’t seem to come out quite right and hit the nail on the head with precision. So, I read an article that nails it for me and I say “Yep, that’s it. I get it.’

Insecurity in me on a massive scale drove me to DO for people to keep them close. It also drove me to control the environment to a certain degree. This was not done because I am an evil, angry ogre. No, I was just plain insecure with deep rejection issues. It was done because I simply did not believe, in the depths of my being, that I was enough for God. This driving reality in me kept giving me a subliminal message that sounded like this:
“You are not enough. Try harder. Buy them off with kindness. Fill their need. Take them places. Buy them things. You know, make it hard for them to go. You are second-rate, second choice. If you don’t do this, ah ah ah…………….you are not enough to keep this going.”
Yikes, that is pitiful but we do it. I have done it. Perhaps you have done it. Why do we do it? I don’t feel that Christ in me is enough to lead the way, get the job done, fulfill His promises, etc. But times they are a changing for me. I say “for me” because this is my internal reality. I am not blaming anyone for it at all. I can trace back these ‘guilt roots’ to my Polish upbringing. Guilt in a Polish family is served up on a fine platter, able to be digested at every meal. No lie. That is truly how it was. I love love love my parents (now deceased) but breaking this ‘thing’ is essential in my life.

I am writing this off the cuff to help each of you avoid making these same mistakes. I have not arrived but this whole thing about guilt is being exposed in the light of the finished work of the cross. And, it feels so good. 

Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. (Hebrews 10:22)

I draw near to God, who through His Son has freed me from guilt and condemnation. The lack that I have inside myself, those places of lack that are like giant voids in my being, are there because I don’t believe or refuse to accept the fact that Christ is full in me. I am enough in Him. He is all in me. It is tempting to work up our lives to compensate for the fact that things are not happening or life is not going the way it should be but that is not the way to go. Not at all. 

Guilt - The Heart 
His life flows through me, always revealing to me His perfection, flowing through my desert places, those places of deep voids and depths of woundedness that still exist for all of us, no matter how old we get in life.
The anecdote for guilt for me  - STOP – stop trying to make it work. Stop trying to make people want to do things. Stop trying and rest, be still, and listen. It works for me and establishes me on a strong foundation of peace. Now, that is not saying that it won’t rise up again and I will be tempted to buy someone out in some way through guilt. It may happen. The answer is to focus on the reality of the finished work of the cross, realizing that He has done it all for us. Guilt and condemnation has been nailed to the cross and we are free. There is NO condemnation (or guilt) for those who are IN Christ Jesus. That’s me. And you.

Sweden as a Lighthouse


Sweden as a Lighthouse

7 March 2011
by Jennifer Rossbach

I had this vision as I was praying of a strong fortress which represented the structures and institutions in Sweden that have replaced God and our reliance upon Him. I saw how the prayers of the saints have caused this seemingly indestructible fortress to begin to disintegrate from within each brick and they were becoming brittle. As the prayers continued to rise up concerning this fortress it crumbled from within as if it were only chunks of sand piled in to nothing at the end.

I also saw the need for vigilance of prayer to be lifted for those who would be called to help rebuild a new and holy structure with the partnership of the Holy Spirit as the architect. Those who perhaps felt unworthy would be positioned around people of influence to breathe new life in to their hearts and truth would be illuminated so that change could be granted though an open door that no man could shut. Isaiah 45:1.

I sense a profound portion of God’s love being deposited over this nation. As these called individuals care for the hearts of those entrusted to make influential decisions, a new precedent would be set. A reversal of the emphasis on “the system” would be replaced with an emphasis on “the individual”. Hunger to understand the Father’s heart would burn in their hearts.

I see tears of repentance as their eyes were now open to see the errors of the past, yet God's love would not allow them to settle in regret since shame is a tactic the enemy tries to put on the people. Redemption through His love and through His blood releases them from any grip of shame. The enemy cannot continue to steal in this way. Newness is on the horizon!

A beacon of light is being released and I almost see Sweden as a lighthouse guiding and directing the other nations as these other nations encounter chaos. Hope and truth emanate from this light beaming from the Nordic nations... Sweden will be a trustworthy friend to many countries who seek to know the Truth and Sweden’s testimony will shatter the lies the enemy has tried to present through the media on a global scale.

The Lord's love (light) will burn away disillusion (fog) which has kept the people of this world in a state of distraction. Sweden will be a prototype of the Lord's unfathomable love and hope to other countries.

The forces of darkness are at work to infiltrate every part of the world and world systems.  Your exemption from this corruption is only available by My Spirit,  and you must choose light over darkness and good over evil.  You must take a stand for all that is righteous, regardless of the pressure to choose otherwise, says the Lord.  It will take effort, but you are well able to do right.  

Isaiah 54:17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me," Says the LORD.

Preparing the Nordic nations

END TIME NATIONS from Norden, from the ENDS OF THE EARTH, CROSS in their FLAGS
Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Faroe Islands (not in picture)

liput.jpg, suuri


•”Out of the north He comes in golden splendor; God comes in awesome majesty”
 Job 37:22

•”Then i looked and behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness was all around it and radiating out of it’s midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of fire. Also from within it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man… And each one went straight forward; they went wherever the spirit wanted to go, and they did not turn when they went. Fire was going back and front among the living creatures; the fire was bright and out of the fire went lightning.” ”This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord”.
Ezekiel 1: 4,5,12-13 and 28

•”A glorious cloud is resting over Scandinavia, full of God’s power. Now is the time for Norden’s calling. God is giving to us the responsibility of the nations of Europe (who have forsaken the Christian faith)”
- Swedish Rolf Wiström in his book ”God’s plan for Norden” in 1950

•”I saw the fire coming over Norden and Europe. I saw multitudes of people coming to the Cross of Jesus” – Rolf Wiström 

•”God’s plan for Norden is to make it an evangelize base for Europe” – Kjell Sjöberg 

•”God is seeking an army in Norden to do His great works… Do you want to be healed from lukewarmness God is asking Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. Great things will happen, be brothers and sisters Norway and Finland…Prophets are going to proclaim the word of God to nations in these times. Norway and Finland has to bow down before God. I say to the priests: They lead the nation, bow down!” – Martie Haayer, 1987 in Jerusalem Fiests of Tabernacles 

•”The nations are calling. From the North comes prayer. Norway will release her hidden treasures. Sweden will stop her divisive ways and the youth will come through to lead the way. From Finland will come even those with apostolic anointing.” – Martin Scott 2001

•”That creative light that’s coming from Norden brings light to whole Europe. Voice and light will become one and you will lead Europe to that voice that I have for this time” – Chuck Pierce 2007 in Finland 

•”When God visited me in 1983 He showed me the northern countries of Europe and their importance to the future of the nations and movement of God on earth.”- Chuck Pierce 

• The vision: map of Nordic nations going to Europe and to Jerusalem, by the Blood of the Lamb and the martyrs. – Gunnar Brudeli 2006

•”..I felt that His call was going out to His prophets in Scandinavia…He will start to move in Sweden in three wawes that will precede the revival. God showed me Denmark that was mobilizing. I saw a prepared support army in Finland that was ready to move into Sweden to assist in these moves of the Holy Spirit…” – Thonni Josef Groth, 2011 

•”God will cleanse and set apart the Church of the cross flags nations of Norden under the Head of Jesus Christ to Himself for His plans in Europe. He will lift up prophets and apostles to seek Him together for these ’end time nations’ and to prepare the saints for the work of the Gospel. He will send submitted Christians in teams to Europe to help start churches and to call to prayer in preparation for revival and the coming of the Lord.” – Päivi Heikkilä 2009 

GREATEST % OF EVANGELICALS in Europe (Wikipedia 2011): Finland 12 % , United Kingdom 8,8 %, Norway 8,4 %, Latvia 7 %, Estonia 4,9 %, Switzerland 4,4 %, Iceland 3,8 %, Ukraine 3,8 %, Denmark 3,5 % 


Army of God to cities and villages
– intercessory prayer and spiritual warfare by prayer groups and by churches together = building altars of God and throwing down altars of satan (spiritual mapping needed) – Christian business men’s networks called too 

2. BREAKTROUGH 24/7 Praise and Worship
- Houses of Prayer , Prayer Centers, Churches; continuous praise and worship and prayer 

Preparing the Church, Eph. 4:10-16
- Head (corner stone) Jesus Christ, Fivefold ministry gifts preparing every saint ready for the work of the Gospel 

God has routes for us via Europe to Israel…



• God’s generals helping to rise up Army of God in Europe
• Prophetic teams helping to rise up houses of prayer in Europe
• Fivefold ministry gifts helping to prepare the Church of Christ in Europe 

We had a NORDIC PRAYER GATHERING 9.11.2013 in King’s Ministries. There were prayer leaders from Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland. Something we prayed and got from God:
Päivi Heikkilä introduced the prophecies and visions God has given to several of His servants in past and today concerning Norden. We see that God is sending Nordic nations to Europe and to Israel to serve in His plans and purposes. 

About Nordic nations there is much good to say; greatest % of evangelicals in Europe, best countries to live in the world, happiest people, the position of women best, no corruption… and the Vikings example to us so that we would be
- causing fear and terror in the enemy’s camp in Europe!
– bold and furious warriors!
– have sharp twoedge swords!
– abundantly sacrificing to God!
– giving the Name of our God to every day of the week!
– going on the water!
– keeping together! taking land!

We can easily see the pioneering spirit and leadership qualities in all these things mentioned here. Being once so obsessed by evil spirits of Vikings, today we have more bornagain believers in our countries than in other countries in Europe.

But there are also many meaningful things to ask for forgiveness; the blood shedding of Vikings, shamanism, old nature worship as religion, pride, control, envy…
God said, that our forefathers, the Vikings, had closed our way to Europe by the hatred and cruelty they carried everywhere they went. 

During the time period from 790-1070 Vikings went from Norway and Denmark to England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. From Sweden they went to France, Germany, Italy, Ukraine, Russia and Turkey. There were Vikings living in Finland too, so they must have joined the trips. Vikings had even 80 000 men in their groups as they went to kill and rob and destroy.
We had the map of the Viking routes as well the map of the vision Nordic nations going through Europe to Israel. In tears we confessed and asked God to forgive the sins of our forefathers of all antichristian works. God spoke us forgiveness and proclaimed that the Blood of Jesus Christ has cleansed us and opened the way to Europe. This came also through a prophecy. There was healing both to Norden and to Europe from these old things.

Then we prayed for each Nordic nation separately with maps and flags. Some things are similar in our nations; the changing of the law in accepting the same sex marriages, the Lutheran church and the giving up from the Word of God that’s going on there, the need to rise up and gather the Army of God for us to be more able and effective to fight against the enemy, the need of apostolic – prophetic leadership to help pastors, evangelists and teachers to prepare the Body of Christ for the work of the Gospel.

We need prophets and apostles to seek the Lord and to find together with the Holy Spirit God’s ways and strategies how to stand together in all these things the Church is facing today and in the future (like they did in the time of the early church). There is much confusion and fear in the Body without a clear common voice of God’s prophets and apostles today. God is calling believers in our nations to Mount Zion, the Holy of Holiest, to seek Him and to become carriers of His Presence. He is calling us to become adults in Christ.

There will be a bigger Nordic Prayer Gathering in August in Finland organized by Finnish prayer leaders, welcome to join! More information later.

Magnify the Lord!

Jewels from Judy: Magnify the Lord!

Judy Bauman

Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together. Psalm 34:3

While in my kitchen, I suddenly received this message from the Lord. With no time to sit, I stood and wrote down His counsel to give to the Church:

“It is more important than ever that My Body rises up to declare My word and My will over their lives and the lives of their loved ones. The voices of cynicism are growing exponentially, and it is unfortunate many who call themselves by My name are repeating the curses their enemy is speaking over them and their situations. I have given you a choice to choose life or death, but many, ones thinking they speak for Me, are speaking death. They continually talk about the devil and the things he is doing. (The physical destruction, political upheavals, and human mayhem that is reported in the daily news.) By doing this, they give the devil honor and glory. By doing this, they themselves open doors for Satan and his cohorts to wreak havoc in their lives and the lives of the very ones they hope to protect!

“Come beloved! Speak My words of life and hope. Come magnify [look upon with great intent] what I Am doing! My glory will arise and be seen over you and I will do many great things through you who dwell in Me.”

Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. Isaiah 60:1-2

Sweden Will Rise Again

Från The Storehouse Sweden:

Sweden Will Rise Again

By Eric Boerhout - 25 October 2013

This is the impression God gave me on thursday evening during the first storehouse weekend gathering.
“Our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I go that I may wake him up.” (John 11:11 NKJV)

I felt in my heart that God was speaking in the context of Sweden. The name Lazarus means: he who God helps. Secondly Lazarus was loved by Jesus (Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, “Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick.” (John 11:3) Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. (John 11:5 NKJV)

At the beginning of the weekend God made clear that He is helping Sweden and those who make themselves available to bring His kingdom to this nation. Sweden has a special place in the heart of God and it is a nation that God loves. The nation is asleep, but Jesus says “I go that I may wake Sweden up”.

Hearing the cry of His people about the ‘sickness of Sweden’, his heart is not troubled, but he responds: “This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” (John 11:4 NKJV)

Jesus stayed two more days at the place where He was before He went to Judea. When he came there Martha talked to Jesus concerning the death of her brother. His answer to her was:”Your brother will rise again.” (John 11:9, 23 NKJV) Both Jönköping and Sweden shall rise again!

In our work and prayer for the restoration of Jönköping and Sweden the answer for new life and resurrection is found in the coming of Jesus himself, His presence, His Spirit and His Word. Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life”(John 11:25 NKJV)

When Mary came to Jesus she said the same thing to Him as Martha: “Then, when Mary came where Jesus was, and saw Him, she fell down at His feet, saying to Him, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.” (John 11:25, 32 NKJV)

When he heard this, Jesus’ heart got troubled and He wept. He went to the tomb and told the people to take away the stone. I felt in my heart that because of the obedience towards God to have the weekend, a stone that kept Sweden (Jonkoping) in its grave had already been moved the moment the weekend begone.

I noticed that it was not Jesus who moved the stone in front of the grave, but those who obeyed His voice.
and to those who doubt what will happen, Jesus says: “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” (John 11:25, 32, 40 NKJV)

Then Jesus cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with grave clothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.” (John 11:43, 44)

With a loud voice Jesus cries out: Sweden, come forth! This cry of Jesus is what the weekend launched and released as we stood in agreement with what God is speaking. Sweden is arising and is coming out of the tomb, out of darkness into the light. Now Jesus is calling His people to release Sweden from it’s bounds and grave clothes, and says: “loose Sweden, and let here go”.

Sweden shall be loosed from its bounds and grave clothes and shall be released into Europe as a witness for the glory of Jesus Christ.
“This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” (John 11:4 NKJV)

Anslut dig gärna till denna fasta och bed för Sverige och Norden. Ur inbjudan för bön- och fastedagen:

Nöd för Guds folk i Sverige

 8 november kl. 18.00 - 9 november kl. 18:00

Ett dygn då vi ”ropar till Herren” för oss själva, Guds folk i Sverige. Vi ber om:
  •  Guds ingripande till uppvaknande och sant lärjungaskap.
  •  Att Gud ska befria oss från apati och likgiltighet.
  •  Att vi, Guds folk, verkligen ska lära känna Herren och i allt söka Hans rike först.
  • Att Gud ska fylla oss med sin kärlek och den Heliga Andes passion för Guds rike och för våra medmänniskor.

”men mitt folk, som är uppkallat efter mitt namn, ödmjukar sig och ber och söker mitt ansikte och omvänder sig från sina onda vägar, då vill jag höra det från himlen och förlåta deras synd och skaffa läkedom åt deras land.”
(2 Kor.7:14)

”Jag vände då mitt ansikte till Herren Gud med ivrig bön och åkallan och fastade i säck och aska. Jag bad till HERREN, min Gud, och bekände: ”O Herre, du store Gud som inger fruktan, du som bevarar förbund och nåd mot dem som älskar dig och håller dina bud. Vi har syndat och gjort orätt, varit ogudaktiga och upproriska. Vi har vänt oss bort från dina bud och föreskrifter…”
(Daniel 9:3- )

Från Kings minstry som är inbjudare till den nordiska bönedagen:

How to hear from God for Yourself

I have tried to help people who wanted to grow in the area of hearing God's voice for themselves.  There is a trap that most people fall into that stops up their spiritual ears.  I am a believer in journaling, books, bibles.  The problem is it becomes self focused, not God focused.  Here are a few prophetic land mines:

Writing down prayers and the answers to them.  A good thing to do, but it's all about you. It's great for testimonies, but does little to hear from God.

Using Bible Verses, rehearsing them, and calling them the voice of God.  I see or hear this frequently from Jr Achievers at the pulpit when they say something like, "I was reading thus and so in the Bible and I believe this was for me".  This happens.  It's good. Chances are the coming alive is the Spirit of God at that moment.  The land mine is believing that you have to read the Bible to hear from God. 

Reading a book by another Christian (or a blog, or a Facebook post, or many such things) and thinking that something that quickened to you was the voice of God.  He can and will use these things but it is no substitute for hearing HIM for yourself.  Second hand revelation is second best.

Listening to speakers, preachers, conferences, tapes/CDs/YOUTUBE/Downloads etc to hear others talk about what God is showing them.  This can be addictive.  It contains in it the "You shoulda been there" concept.  That God spoke thru these men and women and if you weren't there... you missed it.  God Can and DOES speak in these forums, but once more, God is using them, He would rather speak to you directly. 

Sometimes people hear from God while enjoying worship music.  Certainly a great place for God to speak... yet.. it contains in it the idea that I can only hear from GOD if I have my favorite CD playing... it's the idea of God PLUS anything can become a cult. 

Understand, I take part in all of these. All of these contain or can contain the Word of God...perhaps the word of God for YOU.

Here's how.  Learn quiet.  Learn Silence.  No book. No Bible. No tape.  Nothing.  Silence. That means no music. Nothing.  Then, in that atmosphere...pray, ask God to speak. Ask him to show you things you did not know. Ask him to reveal himself to you in a new way. Have a pencil and paper available.  Be ready to write.  Then WAIT.  IF you can,  pray in tongues.  IF you don't pray in tongues, this is going to be much more difficult.  It's the gateway to the gifts of revelation.

 Then go quiet after you have prayed for a while.  For some that will be an hour.  For some less or more.  Wait on the Lord... He will renew your strength as you do. Silent.  His still small voice will speak to you.  Write down what ever you think you hear.  Write it down without revision or judgement.  Just be a stenographer for God.  

This will open a door you will want to go back to  again and again.  The good news is, if you do this a few times your hear will become attuned to the voice of the good Shepherd and another voice you will not hear.

Like they said to Mikey, try it you'll like it.

Ny bok, "Jewels from the River"


Judy Bauman fick jag kontakt med via Internet för många år sedan och vi har blivit vänner. Judy har en stark kärlek till Jesus, och nu vill hon dela med sig av det hon själv fått erfara i vandringen och relationen med Honom i en nyutgiven bok. 

Så här skriver förlaget om boken:

In her new book, Jewels from the River Judy A. Bauman invites readers to join Jesus along the ‘river,’ to walk and talk with Him. The author emphasizes that God is not a respecter of persons, meaning His love is available to all who desire it and that a personal relationship with Him is possible. In fact, He extends His hand to those that truly pursue Him. This book originated in and chronicles one person’s struggle to seek the Father’s will amidst chaos.

“These encounters with the Lord are shared with the hope that readers will take away, not only a sense of awe for God, but also a personal revelation of what Jesus meant when He calls us His friends,” states the author. “When we encounter Jesus, it will forever change our life.”

Judy: At the beginning of the spiritual encounters, I call "Jewels from the River" I asked the Lord why He was sharing these visual parables with me in this manner. He shared this exhortation:

Word from the Lord About Jewels from the River

“I Am gathering My Church to the River. I Am bringing those who will lay aside their feelings of insecurity and enter into a new realm of joy! I Am releasing joy! I Am releasing promises. All of My promises are “Yes in Christ” so the Church will come into alignment with My will and say "Amen" to their Father’s glory. “Stand and behold the City of your God! Stand and behold the glory of your risen King! Honor your King by receiving My joy and My promises because in Me you live and move and have your being. In Me you have everything you need. If you look to the kingdoms of this world, you will have what this world offers. However, if you look to the Kingdom of your God, you will never be disappointed because nothing is lost in My presence. Take hold of My joy. Take hold of My promises. I Am with you wherever you go.”

Filmen "Father of Lights"

Flmmakaren Darren Wilson som gjort filmerna "Finger of God" och "Furions love" har nu gjort ytterligare en film som heter "Father of Lights". Så här presenteras den senaste filmen: 

"If God could be filmed, what would He look like? In this explosive documentary, filmmaker Darren Wilson attempts to do the impossible: film God and understand His character. Along the way, Darren and his team encounter powerful witch doctors, violent gang leaders, Hindu holy men, and everyday people with extraordinary experiences to tell. Father of Lights attempts to tear away much of the bad press the Almighty has received over the years, and reveals a God who is far better than anyone could have possibly imagined.
Prepare to see the impossible. Prepare to meet your Maker."

Här kan du se en 10 minuters trailer:

och filmen kan också hyras under 72 timmar

Rätt fokus

File:Järvenpää - Sibeliuksenkatu IMG 1970 C.JPG

Många tycker inte kallare väder, snö och slask är något att se fram emot, så inte heller jag. Jag uttryckte mig lite beklagade över den kommande årstiden för en vän och nedan kan du läsa hans kloka och andefyllda respons som jag hoppas välsignar dig också. (Svaret är något lite tillrättalagt för att passa för publicering.)
Guds välsignelse!/Barnabas

”Det går att klara hösten och vintern genom att ta en dag i taget. Hur äter man upp en elefant, om inte genom en bit i taget?

En kvinna var inför Gud med sitt liv, och sa till Herren att jag klarar inte en dag till i mitt liv. Herren frågade om hon klarade en halv dag, kvinnan svarade nej. Herren fortsatte då till en fjärdedels dag, vidare till en timme, en halvtimme, en kvart, tio minuter, fem minuter, när  Herren var nere på en minut fick han svaret av kvinnan att hon trodde att det skulle gå bra. Bra, sa Herren, då tar vi en minut i taget.
I stället för en förlorad dag, samlade kvinnan på sig minut efter minut av seger, sedan timmar som sedan blev en hel dag. Vägen till en dags seger gick genom många minuters seger. Hennes minutseger förändrade hennes tankar från nederlag till SEGER.

Sinnet är ett av slagfälten där vi har vår kamp som är närmast och som ofta vill krypa in under skinnet. Hur klarar vi av det? Ibland efter mycket om och men runt de omständigheter vi har, så går vi till Guds Ords löften och talar ut dem, inför andevärlden som endast viker undan för den Helige Ande och Guds Ord. Vår klagan och vårt jämmer när istället vårt ego och så snurrar vi in oss i det som Herren vunnit seger över. Läser i John Bunyans bok Kristens resa som egentligen beskriver vår egen resa kantad av olika saker som vi möter i vårt liv och som övervinns efter kortare eller längre tid. Resan fortsätter på för oss ibland obanade vägar, men Herren är med i och genom allt, även då vi inte förnimmer det. Fotspår i sanden, en av många bra berättelser när mannen endast såg ett par fotspår i de svåraste perioderna av sitt liv, och undrade var Herren var under tiden han behövde Herren mest, och Herren svarade att det var då jag bar dig!

Det är Herren som för oss fram och igenom allt, även om vi ibland måste gå genom eld eller vatten kommer vi igenom, och det är kanske det som kallas genombrott. När man bygger tunnlar och bygger från två håll, möts man vid något tillfälle och då det bryter igenom de sista stenmassorna firar man detta genombrott trots att det är mycket arbete kvar innan tunneln är färdig. Vi får små genombrott i våra liv då vi ser ljuset och då gläds vi och fröjdas, även om vi inte är framme vid målet än.

Jesus har vunnit seger, och varför vi har denna kamp under jordelivet är ibland svårt att förstå, det som känns lite svårt är att Ordet säger att somliga ska avfalla och förneka Jesus. 2 Petr 2:1 Men det fanns också falska profeter bland folket, liksom det bland er kommer att finnas falska lärare som smyger in förödande läror. De skall till och med förneka den Herre som har friköpt dem och drar så plötsligt fördärv över sig.

Så länge vi kan uttala namnet Jesus som är över alla andra namn är vi faktiskt i segerposition, även om vi inte alltid känner det. Det är berättelser där människor blivit så ansatta att de nästan inte kunnat säga namnet Jesus, och när de kämpat med detta så att de till slut kunnat säga JESUS har det släppt och de blivit fria från det som försökt ta deras liv.

Tror att det är viktigt att vi talar ut Guds löften varje dag, namnet Jesus, Jesu blod, Golgata seger ut i andevärlden som behöver höra att de är besegrade och enbart härjar på lånad tid. Men det är som flugor, de kan irritera ordentligt. Tungotal och lovsång är också de vapen som vi har till vårt förfogande. Därför behöver vi komma samman som troende i bön, tillbedjan och lovsång, då principen är 1 jagar 1.000 och 2 jagar 10.000. Varför tror du att attackerna är på familjer och församlingar? Jo, därför att vi tappar mycket när vi är splittrade.

Tyvärr är många så bedragna att de tror att de lever i nåden med ett liv i synd för att det finns förödande läror, mitt ibland församlingar och samfundskyrkor, som enbart bedrar människor att leva i strid mot Guds Ord och utan den Helige Andes kraft. De som lever i äktenskapsbrott och som svär och förbannar, men menar sig leva i någon slags nåd, har kanske missat Guds rättfärdighet som dömer synden och inte ursäktar eller rättfärdigar den?

Vi närmar oss den dag då det är för sent för dem som inte har rättfärdighetens klädnad genom den nåd Herren erbjuder de som omvänder sig och tar emot den Seger Jesus vann på Golgata.

Vi citerar ofta:

 Joh 3:16  För Gud älskade människorna så mycket att han gav dem sin ende Son,
för att de som tror på honom inte ska gå under utan ha evigt liv.
Joh 3:17  Gud sände inte sin Son till världen för att döma dem utan för att rädda dem.

Men Ordet tar inte slut där utan fortsätter, men hur ofta citerar vi de efterföljande verserna?

Joh 3:18  De som tror på honom blir inte dömda. Men de som inte tror på
honom är redan dömda för att de inte tror på Guds ende Son.
Joh 3:19  Och domen är grundad på detta faktum: ljuset från himlen kom
till människorna, men de älskade mörkret mer än ljuset för deras
handlingar var onda.
Joh 3:20  De hatade det himmelska ljuset, eftersom de ville synda i
mörkret. De höll sig borta från ljuset för de var rädda att deras synder
skulle avslöjas.
Joh 3:21  Men de som däremot gör vad som är rätt, kommer med glädje till
ljuset för att alla ska kunna se att de gör vad Gud vill."

Vid en samling skulle vi presentera oss, och en person presenterade sig med namn och la till "en syndare frälst av nåd", och många jublade högt, men den Helige Ande gav mig något annat och jag presenterade mig med namn och la till "Rättfärdiggjord i Kristus Jesus", och det blev alldeles tyst när jag med den Helige Andes hjälp ärade och upphöjde Herren istället för en felaktig obiblisk bekännelse. Hur är det i våra kyrkor och även med våra egna bekännelser, inte allt som får människor att jubla behöver vara sant, även om det sker i våra kyrkor eller vid våra sammankomster? Den skyddade verkstaden kanske är mest bedräglig när lögnen fått fäste i människors hjärtan, med munnens felaktiga bekännelse?

Ärkebiskopen upphöjer Twitter, men inte Jesus, och ska vara den som vägleder kyrkan i en tid som denna. Vaksamhet och urskiljningsförmåga att höra vilken ande som talar och agerar är ytterst viktigt, antikrist får lätta byten med människor som redan är bedragna och förnekar Jesus som sin Herre och Frälsare.

Vi får lägga vår svaga hand i Herrens starka hand i en tid som denna, så att vi går tillsammans med vår Herre och Frälsare den sista sträckan i tiden, och är vi kvar när Jesus kommer tillbaka så är uppryckandet helt plötsligt ett faktum och vi är Hemma hos Herren i ett nu. Halleluja!

Även i stormarna är Jesus med och vi är bevarade när det bedarrat och blir stilla och vi finner att vi är vid en oas med friskt vatten som styrker oss för den fortsatta vandringen.

En dag i taget, och vi är mer än övervinnare. 1 Joh 5:3 Att älska Gud innebär att göra vad han säger till oss, och det är egentligen inte alls  svårt, 1 Joh 5:4  för allt som kommer från Gud övervinner världen. Vi kan besegra världen genom vår tro. 1 Joh 5:5 Ingen kan vinna denna kamp utan att tro att Jesus verkligen är Guds Son.

Tron är en gåva från Herren som förmår.
Efe 2:8  Ty av nåden ären I frälsta genom tro - och det icke av eder själva, Guds gåva är det - Efe 2:9  icke av gärningar, för att ingen skall berömma sig.

Men om du förmår något, så förbarma dig över oss och hjälp oss."
Mar 9:23  Då sade Jesus till honom: "Om jag förmår, säger du. Allt
förmår den som tror."
Mar 9:24  Strax ropade gossens fader och sade: "Jag tror! Hjälp min otro."

Ha en välsignad dag i Herren.
Din broder "

Icelanders Sensing 'Revival' in Reykjavik

Icelanders Sensing 'Revival' in Reykjavik

'A New Beginning' in Iceland After Festival of Hope

September 29, 2013 - Tears and religion are not normally closely related in Iceland, but on Sunday, as Icelanders came streaming down the aisle responding to a Gospel message from Franklin Graham, an emotional night left 'tears of joy' and real hope for a revival to sweep this nation.

"A tremendous experience. This is what we have been praying for.”
— Ragnar Gunnarsson, Iceland Festival of Hope director

It normally takes a lot to move Skúli Barker to tears.
But what he witnessed on Sunday night in his country...
He’ll be the first to tell you, that simply doesn’t happen in Iceland.
“My wife was sobbing next to me,” Skúli said. “And I started to cry. It’s just amazing.”
