The logic of sin and its spokesmen

How do you, a sinner, imperfect fellow, dare to say you have the right to be the thing where everything moves about? How can you claim this position of importance, a standing in the middle of the wheel, as if creation itself will find it’s worth through you?

How can this thing that perishes, the one dependent thing, rely on your unstable intentions? How dare you judge without being of eternal quality, and say that all can’t be without you?

Listen, if you want to live forever you’ll need to have eternal quality – having no fault. Thus being able to withstand the process of being judged about your worth of standing in the place of courtship, being part of the Perfect Standard.

Only one Man has the right to claim this position, the One who was proved of being of Eternal quality, the One who was perfectly stable and now is praised for His trustfulness. Listen to Him, for only His judgment is righteous. Make Him your standard and you’ll see that you will grow in importance by denying yours.

Be Lifted

Longing for the higher state,
not recognizing that while in err,
My mind keeps me in hate.

Wisdom either longs for me, shouting with a tender voice. Still crying, of what I must lose to be.

A clue for understanding everlasting joy is that higher logic always seems foolish for the one who is depending on a lower logic.

Being in a state of realizating that your present state of being is not helping you to be overflowing with happiness and joy makes you also become aware of the fact that you need to obtain a better understanding of reality as it is, or you may satisfy your longing by enjoying some temporary satisfaction.

The secret in having peace, is in putting all your desire in something that is going to be there for ever. The more you are loving this, the more you will find satisfaction and joy in it without having to satisfy anything in the material – always being contend.

This what we love is Jesus, a person. Truth can only be a person, because real peace only comes by friendship – we as human beings can only be satisfied with that what is like us. This is why Buddha acknowledged of not having found peace as it should be. He did not know truth as being a person who loved him.

Going to a higher state of being, is in reality getting to know Jesus Christ who is now in heaven with God and in God – so when we go towards understanding God, our Creator, we see Jesus Christ and we can draw love from His Eternal Source, knowing that we are loved by what He did on the cross – dying for us. This knowledge sets us free and is thus proclaimed as the GOSPEL, the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ.

We may be lifted up by Him, by understanding His love for us.

A miraculous bottle of Fanta

Today I wanted to visit the revival fellowship in Almere, but when I came there I remembered that they were gone on some kind of a retreat. A bit discouraged I walked to the malls in Almere, which was quite a long walk and I used the opportunity to pray (in tongues).

After spending some time shoppFantaing and looking for a birthday present for my mom, I went home and while buying the train ticket a man walked to me and asked me if I could buy him a Fanta. ‘yeah, why not’ and we walked to a nearby shop where I could buy a meal and a fanta for him. We sat down and started to talk about Jesus. Surprisingly, he was already telling me that the bible is in his head, and told me a story about Jesus hiding in a cave, with a spider web protecting him from unbelievers.

Anyway, I opened up my English bible and we continued talking about repentance and baptism. Eventually he told me that he was living on the streets because of huge debt and he was just about to get an apartment. He really had childlike faith, and when he was telling me about his asthma problems I told him I could pray and he will be healed, and he agreed on that one. We went outside the shop and I layed my hands on his shoulder, starting to pray: Commanding spirits to leave and restoration on lungs etc.

After praying he was all fired up and told me (‘WOW I FELT HEAT, ALL OVER MY LUNGS!!!’) that he felt warmth in his body, pointing on my body where it was burning. For me this was really a big thing, because it’s been a while ago that I experienced this on the streets. We went into the train station and I could bless him with some money. The funny thing is, that afterwards I could see him walking around, loudly singing songs to Jesus! And even telling others about what happened to him!! God is so good, and the lesson I learned is that God will send you opportunities, just pray for it, and be ready to act as a soldier, not counting giving as loss!

Praise be unto God! And the Lord Jesus Christ! This day I also had a prayer with a catholic man, who was in my opinion under heavy spiritual bondage, having some sickness in his lungs and blood. After prayer he felt things going on in his body. I believe he’s touched by GOD!

“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” – 2 Timothy 1:7

When faith is rewarded.

God is wonderful, I’m so blessed all the way I’ve traveled now! I now have a better understanding why God ‘rewards those who deligently seek Him’. Because without rewards on the way to full knowledge of God, our souls would be worn out and discouraged. Our heavenly Father is eager to let us know that we can trust Him, let’s open our lifes up for His ultimate presence, let’s persevere in the knowledge of our righteousness in Him, our door through which we boldly come into the presence of the all-knowing, loving, mighty Lord.

If we seek the Kingdom of God, the presence of the most glorious one, our little soulish life will be replaced with a life that overflows with blessings and thankfulness. We have something that the world can never give us, we have eternal life, our relationship with the Father through the cleansing of our sins.

Let’s persevere when we face hardness, for we live in a fallen world. We will have more patience, more strength to endure this sinful generation and shine like stars in heaven. We are to share the hope that is in us, a purpose where all souls long for. We know the way, our way is Jesus. We are freed from this world, free from the desires and lusts of the flesh, because we can sink into the arms of our Father. In Christ we rejoice, our lifes rest in Him.

Signs of the Time.

I am not a person who advocates some kind of end-time doctrine. I am not a person who wants to frighten people with some kind of doom prophecy, and I am not someone who wants to boast in my knowledge about the end. But what I have found I share with you. This video is a summary of all the happenings in 2012 until this day. Through this video I felt the love of God for humanity, I experienced the crucifixion of the Lord in my soul. Oh how great is the love of the Father for His beloved sons and daughters. Our good Lord knew all that was going to happen to the lost sheep. Thank you Jesus, thank you for your wonderful grace.

Doubt and Skepticism

Faith is not something one develops. We are born with it. The child at its mother’s breast doesn’t try to have faith in her, but rests in her arms. That innocence is the perfect example. It is implicit trust. That is how we begin life. The disposition doesn’t change for a long time. Children are even too trusting. We warn them about strangers for example. We become more discriminating of course. We learn what and who we can rely upon.

Unfortunately some don’t know where to stop, especially after a bad experience or two. It is said that a running ostrich will stop dead at a line in the sand, but doubts don’t know where to draw the line. Uncertainty breeds suspicion, suspicion breeds skepticism and skepticism gives birth to cynicism. We become spiritually brain-damaged, or at least cross-eyed with double vision.

Unbelief is not natural. “God has dealt to all men the measure of faith”, the Bible says (Romans 12,3). God gives us faith but if we don’t exercise it, it dies. There is such a thing as chronic and acute mistrust. It is a breakdown. Victims become fearful about anything at all, lose all confidence in themselves, unsure of performing simple tasks, whether they are clean or if they have forgotten something. To such tormented souls Jesus said “Have faith, not phobia” (Mark 5,36). Have a blessed day.

Humility

Humility is seeing yourself the way God sees you and saying about yourself what He says about you, because only then are you submitting to authority. When you humble yourself, bow your knee to your king and His authority over you – you won’t insist on saying things how YOU see them or saying how you think things are if that is different from what He says. To refuse to say good things about yourself – who you are in Christ – that you have been given authority is actually pride and/or rebellion. You either think you know better (pride) or you know God’s Word is true but simply refuse to do it (rebellion).
