No. 1615: Spotter Ivar Haugsbakk with yet another low goal!

No. 1615:
Spotter Ivar Haugsbakk with yet another low goal!

I was baptized in the Holy Spirit with tongues that came by themselves.
A wonderful, important and great experience.
It is written in the following scriptures: "The Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied." This is what I experienced!
I remember very well the first time I spoke in tongues and experienced the baptism of the Spirit, it was in my hometown Skudeneshavn on Karmøy. Right outside the old SR Bank, as shown in the picture.

I have written an article about this vile person who engages in regular heresy, explanation and mocks God and God's Spirit!

This is what Haugsbakk writes:

Pine leader Daniel Alm on the trend of speaking in tongues: - Anyone who wants to can speak in tongues (Korsets Sier 03.03.2022).

Anyone who wants to can speak in tongues? That is how it has become in the Pentecostal charismatic movement, where what they call speaking in tongues has become an act of the will. Speaking in tongues, or more precisely "speaking in a tongue in a language", is the gift of the Spirit to speak a human language with meaning (1 Cor 14:10) - a language one does not know in the first place. But the "tongues" of the Pentecostal movement is not a language at all, but rather a kind of repetitive incomprehensible words.

Everything that is right has a flip side. It is of course correct what Haugsbakk claims. There are many unhealthy and unbiblical relationships with those who speak in tongues.

It is as Haugsbakk claims that those who are taught to speak in tongues, it is not healthy and biblical. But to claim that speaking in tongues is Babel is only a scoffer and a deceived person who does.

We read so wonderfully what happened on the day of Pentecost

Ap.jj 2. 1 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all* gathered in the same place. *the twelve, verses 1:26 , 2:4 , 2:7
2 Then it happened that suddenly there came a sound from the heavens, like a mighty stormy wind. And it filled the whole house where they stayed.
3 Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire. They were distributed so that they sat one on each of them.
4 Then they were all* filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak in foreign tongues, according as they were given utterance by the Spirit. *the twelve, verses 1:26 , 2:4 , 2:7

Here we read so wonderfully, they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. And began to speak in foreign tongues, which Haugsbakk mockingly says is Babel.

Furthermore, we read the same thing in Kornelius's house

Ap.jj 10. 44 While Peter was still speaking, the Holy Spirit fell on all who heard the message.
45 The circumcised believers who were with Peter were amazed that the gift of the Holy Spirit had also been poured out on them from the nations.
46 They heard that they spoke in tongues, and that they exalted God.
47 To that Peter asked: "Can anyone deny them the baptism of water when they have also received of the Holy Spirit?"
48 Then he commanded that they should be baptized in the Lord's name. Then they asked them to stay with them for a few days.

Here we read the same thing, they were filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues which the scoffer Haugsbakk claims is Babel. There are millions who have experienced the same thing afterwards. Both among the first Christians and up to today. Throughout 2000 years there are people who have experienced the same thing that the scoffer claims is Babel.

We read the same thing about John's disciples experiencing the same thing

Ap.jj 19. 7 It happened while Apollos was in Corinth: Paul traveled through the upper districts and came to Ephesus. There he met some of the disciples.
8 Then he asked: "Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you came to faith?" They answered, "We have never heard of any holy spirit!"
9 Then he asked: "But how were you baptized?" And then they answered him: "With John's baptism."
10 Then Paul said: "John indeed baptized a baptism of repentance, but he told the people that they must believe in him who came after him, in Christ Jesus."
11 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
12 As Paul laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied.
13 All the men together were about twelve.

All people of all times who have received the baptism of the Spirit have spoken in tongues. The following is clearly stated here: "Paul laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied."
It is this that has filled everyone who has experienced this great and wonderful experience and gift. Blue. speaking in new tongues, the gift of tongues they have not learned in any other way than by receiving this supernaturally.

Is it necessary to warn against Ivar Haugsbakk and his teaching?

For those of us who have experienced this, Haugsbakk is a fool. We know that he is in the business of destroying the faith.

1 Hour. 6. 20 Timothy, take care of what has been entrusted to you! Avoid ungodly talk and such contradictory teachings as are falsely called knowledge.
21 Those who preach them have strayed from the faith. Grace be with you. Amen

He is within here the Apostle Paul speaks of:
"Such contradictory doctrines as are falsely called canncabinet. Strayed away from the faith.”

It is the newly saved and those who seek this experience.
For whom this preaching is dangerous.
That is why I warn against him and his errant teachings.

I am afraid that just as the serpent tricked Eve with his cunning, your thoughts have also been led astray, away from the sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
The whole premise of Haugsbakk's teaching is poisoned.
In his own words, he exposes himself as a liar.
Who twists the scriptures, to their own and others' downfall.

We end this short article by telling about my own Spirit Baptism experience!

I was saved on January 25, 1981. But in the beginning as a believer my spiritual growth was slow. It really doesn't matter that things take time.
That's how it was for me.
But then the spiritual longing began to accelerate.
Blue. I joined Finn Arne Lauvås in meetings around.
Where I was with him at meetings in Nedstrand, Kopervik, Norheim and Sævelandsvik (Åkrehamn) in various Free Friends congregations.

This was April 1982 after me and Finn Arne had been to a meeting at Saron in Sævelandsvik.
I don't remember the exact date, but I'm pretty sure it was mid-April 1982.
We chatted together and I told her that I felt something very pressing inside me.
Then Finn Arne said that I should just "let it go", this was Jesus and the Holy Spirit working.
With others not from myself, but it was God himself with his Spirit who worked.

I can remember that Finn Arne had a station wagon to have the sound equipment in the back of the car. I then got off at a square in Skudeneshavn where the SR bank was then located.
Crossed the road and stopped. Then for the first time I spoke in new tongues fluently.
It came completely by itself, and there I was baptized in the Holy Spirit and tongues flowed over my lips. A streak and a strength that I did not have from myself, but from God.
Since then, in April 1982 I have been a tongue speaker, hallelujah!

That I pushed myself in any way was taught by someone. Is as far away from reality as it is possible to get.
It pressed on inside me, and I just "let it go" and it came completely by itself. All glory to God and Lamme!

No. 1614: Jesus will give life and abundance, while the Thief will only steal, kill and destroy!

No. 1614:
Jesus will give life and abundance, while the Thief will only steal, kill and destroy!

The thief is here the evil one – Satan – as described by Jesus.
It is one of his many names and attributes.
Illustration image


Joh.e. 10. 10 The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy. I have come that they may have life, and they may have it abundantly.

Jesus refers to Satan here as a thief, and he really is. What does the Thief want?
Jesus says it himself here; "steal, kill and destroy!"

What does it mean to steal? Here from Wikipedia.
Theft refers to unjustifiably taking someone else's things in order to obtain an advantage for oneself in that way. In §321 of the Norwegian Penal Code, this is stated as follows:
Theft is punishable by anyone who takes an object belonging to another, with the intention of obtaining an unjustified gain for himself or others by selling, consuming or otherwise appropriating it.

Satan really does not own any worldly things. But God has given us humans stewardship responsibility for this earth, and the things that are on earth.
This is where the Thief (Satan) operates.

Satan's goal is to make things uncomfortable, not make things easy!

Everyone has experienced being exposed to something unpleasant. In the form of theft, abuse, bad treatment etc.
That is how Tyven operates.
Does not create anything of its own, but robs others who have created and done something.
Who is in possession of something that is his, that the Thief wants.

We read about the evil one's fight against Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden!

What do we see there?
Satan will always disturb, mislead and ultimately make that which God will give us.
Or has given us, is robbed from us.
If we are robbed and end up with darkness reigning where light should have reigned.
God had placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, where they were to rule and were Blessed.

Satan will exchange the good, the right and that which is for the best for us. With evil, that which robs us of joy and that which is for the worst for us.

There are two opposites, God and Satan. We read about how Satan seduced Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and this is how he works today as well. The tactics are the same, to deceive and play us so that we follow His evil purposes. Not God's plan and will!

Genesis 3. 1. But the serpent was more cunning than all the animals of the field that God the Lord had made, and it said to the woman: Did God really say: You shall not eat from any tree in the garden? 2 And the woman said to the serpent: We can eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden; 3 but about the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, God has said: You shall not eat of it nor touch it, for then you shall die. 4 Then the serpent said to the woman: You shall not surely die; 5 for God knows that on the day you eat of it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God and know good and evil. 6 And the woman saw that the tree was good to eat from, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that it was a beautiful tree, since one could gain understanding from it, and she took the fruit and ate; and she brought her husband with her, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both were opened, and they saw that they were naked, and they fastened fig leaves together and tied them around their waists. 8 And they heard God the Lord walking in the garden, when the day had grown cool; and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9 Then God the Lord called Adam and said to him: Where are you? 10 And he answered: I heard you in the garden; then I was afraid, because I was naked, and I scowled. 11 Then he said: Who told you that you are naked? Do you have one of the three that I forbade you to eat? 12 And Adam said: The woman whom you gave me to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate. 13 Then the Lord God said to the woman: What have you done! And the woman said: The serpent deceived me, and I ate. 14 Then God the Lord said to the serpent: Because you have done this, you shall be cursed among all cattle and among all wild animals. On your belly you shall crawl, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life. 15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, but you shall bruise its heel.

Satan's goal is obvious, to deceive people and make them believe something other than what God has said.

This is how he operates today too, make us humans believe the lie rather than the truth.
Here Eva was first seduced, it says what she did.
"The woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that it was a beautiful tree, since one could gain understanding from it, and she took the fruit and ate."

Scripture clearly warns against this, we read in 1 Joh.b. 2. 15 Do not love the world or anything that is of the world. For whoever loves the things of this world cannot have our Father's love in him.
16 For all that is of the world — the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes, and inflated pride of one's own means, is not of our Father, but of the world.
17 That which is of the world shall be taken away with its lust. But he who does the will of God shall endure for ages.

Here we see that what the Apostle warns against was a trap for Adam and Eve.
It isthe same trap and temptations for us today allow. As it has always been.
We read in verse 16 in particular: "the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes, and inflated pride of one's own means."

Many of us remember a song from Sunday school where it was called "Be careful, little eye, what you see", "little ear, what you hear", "little mouth, what you say", "little foot, where you goes" and "little heart, what do you think".

This is basic knowledge in the face of the enemy. We give him access by opening ourselves up to his thought pattern.
Second, our feelings, and what we allow ourselves to both see and hear.

The Evil One will still rob us of what God will give us. Therefore, we must be aware that there are two polar opposites. Which in turn will gain influence and control over us.

Col. 1. 13 He has freed us from the powers of darkness, and he will lead us to his kingdom through the love of his Son.
1930 the translation Col. 1. 13 he who freed us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son,

Apparently, it may seem that Jesus' words that he will give us life, and abundance. While the Thief comes to steal, kill and destroy votes. Da Tyven/Satan has so much to offer. As the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eye.
Or as it says in the 1930 translation here.
1 John b. 2. 16 for all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and grandeur of life, is not of the Father, but of the world.

When we allow the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and our pride to rule us, it leads directly to what the Thief wants.
We must then do something about this, as Tyven wants. The scriptures give clear and good advice.
Here is one of many:

2 Cor. 10. 3 For though we live in the flesh, we do not strive after the flesh.
4 The weapons of war that we use are not of the flesh, but of the power of God, the one who can pull down strongholds.
5 For we will tear down mental buildings and all fences that rise against the knowledge of God. We capture every thought that is not of obedience to Christ.
6 And we are ready to punish all disobedience until you are fully obedient.

Jesus creates change, joy and life.
But one can compare this to passing a glass filled with something good to drink.
You have to choose to drink yourself, in order for there to be benefit and pleasure from it.
It is the same for us, we ourselves must choose to do something with what God has given us in Christ Jesus.

Final comment:

That Jesus will give us life, life in abundance.
Jesus himself said it "I have come that they may have life, and they may have it more abundantly."
At the same time, it does not come automatically. We must choose for ourselves whether it is Jesus' influence that will apply.
Or it is the opposite power that will gain influence.
Jesus himself said this; "The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy."
Who is this Thief? Obviously our enemy Satan.
There are two opposite poles here, each with its own alternative.
The choice is ours who will rule and rule in our lives.
Scripture says:
Room. 6. 16 Do you not know that when you present yourselves as slaves, as slaves you must be obedient - either to the sin that leads to death, or you are obedient to righteousness.
17 And by God's grace you are not slaves to sin, but wholeheartedly obedient to the form of teaching that has been handed down to you.
18 You have been freed from sin and are slaves to righteousness.

Here we meet this in scripture again. We arrive at the finished table.
But there is a catch to it all. We must accept this by believing this, then a surrender to God's good will is required.
This is also the case with what Tyven has to offer.
You have to accept lies as truth. Live according to what is really the easiest thing for us humans as we are born in sin and thrive in sin. We are basically on Tyvens' side, who will show us everything.
Above all, it is the Eternal life in Christ Jesus that he wants to rob us of.
Second, everything in this world that is most important is to do God's will and live according to God's good word. Live by the Good Book!
Life and abundance, what is this really? Enter Christ and live according to His teachings!
What is the opposite?
It is not really following Jesus, receiving him. Because if you do not accept Jesus, you will never gain access to this life, the scriptures teach!

1 John b. 5. 10 He who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in him. But he who does not want to believe God on this makes him a liar, because he does not want to believe the testimony God has given about his Son.
11 And this is God's testimony: That he gives eternal life, and that this life is through the Son.
12 He who has the Son has life. But he who does not have the Son of God does not have life either.
13 I write this so that you will believe in the name of the Son of God, and so that you will know that you will have eternal life through faith in the name of the Son of God.

1930 the translation 1 Joh.b. 5. 10 He who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; he who does not believe God has made him a liar; for he has not believed the testimony which God has given his Son. 11 And this is the testimony that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life t; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. 13 I have written this to you so that you may know that you have eternal life, you who believe in the name of the Son of God.

The basic text also says roughly the following freely translated:
10 He who believes in the Son of God has the testimony within himself; he who does not believe God has made him a liar; for he has not believed the testimony which God has testified about his Son. 11 This is the testimony that God has given us the Son, this eternal life is in his Son and no one else 12 He who has the Son, he has this eternal life. Whoever does not have the Son of God, he does not have this eternal life! 13 I have written this to you so that you may know that you have eternal life who believe in the Name (Jesus) of the Son of God. The name of God's son (Jesus.)

No. 1613: How to behave as a Jesus believer in the face of difficult, narcissistic and lying people, what does the scripture say?

No. 1613:

How to behave as a Jesus believer in the face of difficult, narcissistic and lying people, what does the scripture say?

God's guidance is not really that difficult. God leads us through his word, through his Spirit, through people and circumstances. In extra ordaining cases angels and by hearing God's voice clearly. But not only hearing, but also doing is the essence and the important thing.
Even a donkey can be used by God as with Balaam, but the usual is primarily through the word of God, our conscience, through the circumstances and other people.
Illustration image with a mouth, as God's speech is in different ways as mentioned here. Well, that is the topic of this article.

All believers face challenges repeatedly in dealing with people who are ruled by forces other than God.
And has an attitude that is challenging, difficult and narcissistic.

As a believer, I would argue that we are generally trained and brought up to be too permissive. Give in to evil and evil persons. Scripture also says this.

Matt. 5. 43 "You have heard that it is said: 'You shall love your neighbor' and hate your enemy. Leviticus 19:18
44 But I say: Love your enemies, speak well of those who hate you and pray for those who slander and persecute you. For in this way you can show that you are sons of your Father in heaven.
45 For when the sun rises, it rises on both the evil and the good, and when it rains, it rains on both the just and the unjust.
46 For if you love only those who love you, what reward do you deserve? Don't the tax foots do the same?
47 And if you only greet your brothers, what do you do more than others? Don't the tax foot also do the same?
48 Therefore be mature, for your Father in heaven is mature."

This is important, and right. Turn the other cheek, don't catch up. But scripture also teaches other ways to deal with injustice. It is not always right to always give in, turn the other cheek.
Let me take a few more scriptures that deal with this.

Ephesus. 5. 8 Before you were in darkness. But now you are in the Lord's light. Then also live as a child of light.
9 For the fruit of the spirit consists of goodness, righteousness and truth.
10 Consider what pleases the Lord!
11 Do not become part of the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.
12 But it is a shame just to talk about what happens in secret.
13 For everything is revealed and revealed by the light, and everything that is revealed is by the light.
14 Therefore he has said: 'Awake, you who sleep! Rise from the dead.' Let Christ shine for you! ISA 26,19

Col. 4. 3 Let me reveal it as I should speak.
4 Behave wisely among outsiders. Buy yourselves time.
5 Let your speech be gracious, and seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.

Here the scripture says, on the contrary, we should turn the other cheek, but rather rebuke and expose the works of darkness

Looking back at small and large events in my life. Where, unfortunately, all too often I have accepted what certain difficult, narcissistic and lying people have come at me with. Then, unfortunately, I didn't take up the fight, but gave in.
This is what I would call the "Christianity syndrome!" that one turns the other cheek in time and out of time.
Scripture also says, rebuke, speak against and do not always accept injustice and evil people's actions and behavior.

Think e.g. what I did to Unibuss who made outright false and lying accusations against me.
That I played loud Christian music, which was not true at all.

Then I stood with the "Santa's hat" in my hand, and accepted what these liars came up with.
Think this is synonymous and common among us believers?
Where time after time we are far too lenient in the face of evil and evil people. We do not take up the fight, and fight and stand for what we know and believe is right.

Important and necessary to always be led by the Holy Spirit for us believers, in all situations of life!

Actually believe that God will and can lead us as believers in absolutely all situations and events in life. Then God will guide us in accordance with his own word, not only that. But the Lord will give us advice with his eye, it says in the scriptures.

Psalm 32. 8 I will teach you and show you the way you should walk; I will advise you with my eye. 9 Do not be like the horse and the mule, which have no understanding! Their jewelry is empty and sloppy to compel them with; they will not come near you.

There are many stories from God's word that come to mind. One of them is when King David fought against the Philistines. How God led him.

1 Chron 14. 8 When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over all Israel, they all went out to get hold of him. But David got the hang of it and went out to meet them. 9 The Philistines came and spread out over the valley of Rephaim. 10 Then David asked God for advice: "Shall I go against the Philistines? Will you hand them over to me?” And the Lord answered: “Just go up; I will give them into your power.” 11 Then David went up to Ba'al-Perasim, and there he smote them. Then he said: “God has broke through the enemy's ranks by my hand as water breaks through a dam." Therefore this place is called Ba'al-Perasim. 12 There the Philistines left their idols, and David ordered them to be burned.
     13 But the Philistines went out once more and spread out across the valley. 14 Then David asked God for advice again, but he answered: "You shall not follow straight after them, but take a detour so that you come upon them opposite the beca trees. 15 When you hear the sound of footsteps above the treetops, go to battle. For then God has gone out before you to smite the army of the Philistines.” 16 David did as God commanded him, and he defeated the Philistine army and pursued it from Gibeon to Gezer. 17 David's reputation reached all countries, and the Lord made it so that all nations were afraid of him.

God does not always lead us the same way every time, even if we have the same enemy!

As I have pointed out, we as believers are in the vast majority of cases far too lenient towards our opponents. By all means, this is correct in many cases. The scripture says, among other things to turn the other cheek and go the extra mile.
This walking 1 mile was something that in Jesus' time every citizen was required to do to help the Roman soldiers with their equipment when they needed help. This was approx. 1.6 Km. Jesus said, go double!

Sometimes it is right to be "defiant" and stand up for what is right.
Scripture says:

Heb. 11. 23 By faith Moses hid
24 By faith, after he had grown up, Moses refused to say that he was the son of Pharaoh's daughter.
25 He preferred to have to suffer with God's people rather than have a momentary joy in the pleasure of sin.

We see here that both Moses' parents and Moses himself put themselves on the "hind legs" in the face of what was imposed on them and expected. Like the word that says about Moses,
"By faith, after he had grown up, Moses refused to say that he was the son of Pharaoh's daughter."

It is when he had grown up that he REFUSED!

Looking back on my life and ministry. So this with being able to "vary" and the ability to say no when you have to. And yes, when it has to be said. It is not easy, as one is so easily influenced both by the circumstances and by having what I would call the "Christian syndrome!" Where one accepts far too much, and is too permissive.
I'm not saying it's wrong sometimes.
But we can learn from King David, who asked God for advice every time the enemy attacked.
We read in 1 Chronicles 14 that David attacked first, and won the victory.
The second time he used cunning, and won.
Likewise for us believers, we must ask God for wisdom and the ability to be led by God and his Spirit.

I know the importance of being led by the Holy Spirit is crucial!

Unfortunately, I have made a number of mistakes here as well, which both I and you who read this should and can learn from.
It is when God speaks about something, then one must stand firm in this.
Don't back down, but stand firm. Abide in what you have learned says Paul to Timothy.
The same can be said for us today.

God has time after time either spoken to me, guided me or in other ways revealed his will.

This with God's leadership is not really that difficult. Then God will reveal his will and way for his children. The scriptures speak of this again and again.
But my experience is that the most difficult thing is to implement what God has spoken and shown me.
I think this is true for all believers!

God is tender and careful when he leads us most of the time!

We read in Psalm 34 that he gives us advice with his eye. We know that the eye is the most vulnerable and delicate place on the body. Just a small piece of debris is enough to impair vision. As soon as the eye feels attacked, we close it automatically.

It is therefore completely wrong to think that we will get writing on the wall and hear God's will like King Belshazzar in Daniel 5. This can happen, but the "normal" is small hints either through God's word, by God's indictment, by other people or circumstances happen as God shows his way!

Final comment:

Finally, I would like to tell here how God led us as a family when my wife and I were relatively newly married and had only had our 2 girls.
We had bought a relatively small two-room apartment in Vestli here in the capital.
It was too small for us, and we asked God to help us get a bigger apartment.
I was at the Library at Stovner and read the newspaper Vårt Land.
It was there in the Bill newspaper. Branded apartment 4-room apartment for rent.
I called right away and came for a viewing. This was obviously God's will.
But then for various reasons I managed to squander this opportunity.
That is how God leads, and it is important then to follow God's leadership and be steadfast. Here through the circumstances.
Unfortunately, far too many times I have been led by God, but have not followed God's leading. I have tried to learn lessons, and you who are reading this.
Take lessons, and follow God's leading all the way.
Not only at the beginning, but also throughout and at the end. You will profit from this, and God's way and leadership is always the right one give the best!

No. 1612: The Christians let go of the sin of non-believers - but treat sin and that which violates the Scriptures among the believers by saying that "the blood of Jesus" covers sin from which one has not repented

No. 1612:

The Christians let go of the sin of non-believers - but treat sin and that which violates the Scriptures among the believers by saying that "the blood of Jesus" covers sin from which one has not repented

God allowed Jan Hanvold (pictured) to be sent among the believers, to see who follows the Lord 100% or compromises with God's word.


This is hypocrisy and unbiblical!

Matt. 5. 13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its power, how can it regain its salt content? Then it is not usable for anything other than being thrown out and being trampled by people.”
14 “You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be kept hidden.
15 Nor does anyone light a lamp to keep it hidden under a measuring vessel*. You put it in a candle holder so that it gives light to everyone in the house. *modios = bushel, approx. 20 litres
16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven."

We are dealing with a righteous God!

When you actually listen to most Christian preachers and what is conveyed among the faithful. Then it is partly a form of a God who is very gracious towards believers. Because "the blood of Jesus" and everything else "protects" the believers.
While children of the world, God only gets "angrier" and more resentful.

Scripture does not say so. Just listen:
1 Pet. 4. 17 For the time of judgment shall begin with the house of God! But if we are to be first, then what about those who towards the end disobey God's message?
18 For: 'If it is difficult for the righteous to be saved, how will it fare with the wicked and sinners?' WORD 11,31
19 And therefore he who must suffer according to God's will, must surrender his soul to good works in faithfulness to the Creator.

The judgment does not begin with the children of the world, but with the Christians!

Today's preachers and otherwise the faithful are really making a big, big mistake here.
One overlooks sins among the believers, but one overfocuses on the non-believers.
We must have realized that the non-believers are in darkness, and they are ruled by the God of this World in one and all!
They are hopelessly lost, and live a life essentially completely at the mercy of their Lord.
The scriptures are clear on who this is, it is actually the Darkest Prince Satan.

Here are some scriptures that cover what I am saying here:

2 Cor. 4. 4 For the god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see that the light of the glory in the message of Christ, who is in the image of God, shall shine before them.

Ephesus. 2. 1 You also were dead in your trespasses and sins.
2 For formerly you lived according to the spirit of the age of this world, according to the spirit which is of the prince of the air, which now works in the sons of disobedience.
3 In the past you also lived according to the lust of the flesh. You followed the will and thought of the flesh. By nature you were children of wrath, as were the rest of us.

Ap.jj 26. 18 You will open their eyes and turn their darkness into light. You will lead them away from Satan's powers to God so that they will be forgiven of their sins. Then you will receive an inheritance among the saints who have believed in me.'

Col. 1. 13 He has freed us from the powers of darkness, and he will lead us to his kingdom through the love of his Son.

People who live in darkness and in the light, shouldn't the same be demanded of them?

God is a just God, but the Christians do so many strange things.
It is deafening to see how they demand one and the other from the children of darkness. But they can get themselves to do most things themselves.
Mention an e.g. that remarriage for believers is a sin.
Unfortunately, most people then hear that "the blood of Jesus" covers this.
But it does not, as one must repent before being forgiven.
God he then clearly says in his own word that believers if they are divorced.
They must either reconcile or live single. Do they do something else, by finding a new partner.
Then the scripture says it clearly. That one engages in fornication.
This, then, is the scripture's testimony and clear words.

Luke 16. 18 “Whoever leaves his wife to marry another commits adultery. Also anyone who marries a woman who has been left by her husband commits adultery.”

Room. 7. 1 You are not ignorant, brothers - and I speak to you who know the law - that the law has dominion over a man while he lives.
2 A woman who has a husband is bound to him, but if her husband dies, she is released from her husband's law.
3 If her husband is alive and she stays with another, she shall be called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is free from his law and is not an adulteress if she stays with another man.

1 Cor. 7. 10 To a spouse I command by the Lord: A woman shall not leave her husband.
11 But if she leaves him, she must either live in abstinence or be reunited with her husband. And a man shall not leave his wife.

Final comment

It is really strange and incomprehensible how one abuses "Jesus' blood", grace, forgiveness, etc. What we see here among the majority of the Christian congregations here in Norway, unfortunately, is the teaching of the Nicolaitans.
Congregant ten in Ephesus had to fight against this heresy, today's Christian congregations live in many ways so that this is included!

What then is the teaching of the Nicolaitans?

Or Balaam's teaching which is really a variant of the same matter.

I have written something about this in my Bible commentaries from John Revelation
2. 6 But you should have the praise that you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, as I myself do.
If there were things that were lacking in the intimate community relationship, they still held God's word dear. The works of the Nicolaitans are actually what the Apostle John went against in his first letter. That one can sin with the body but still be a living believer. This, in brief, is what the works of the Nicolaitans are; to sin with the body but still be forgiven and live with the Lord. This is of course heresy when sin is widely accepted both in our lives and in the church.
(end of quote.)

It is this, that we believe in God's forgiveness and salvation.

But do not repent and live a Christian life worthy of God and Christ.
This, which is now so widespread among the faithful with i.a. so much remarriage and double standards among the faithful. These are the works or teachings of the Nicolaitans.

Really gets upset when one has to constantly excuse the believers' sin and lack of self-control. Where one apologizes again and again, e.g. remarry.
But other things that are also unbiblical are attacked most strongly.
The scriptures say if you have broken one of God's commandments, you have broken them all.
There is no excuse for any sins. All disobedience is sin.
And one must repent, not just confess.
It is really foreign teaching that is spreading more and more!

No. 1611: The Planning and Building Agency is required by the Public Administration Act to respond - but they are notoriously breaking this law, but this is not acceptable and is criminal!

No. 1611:

The Planning and Building Agency is required by the Public Administration Act to respond - but they are notoriously breaking this law, but this is not acceptable and is criminal!

Unfortunately, there are no responsible people within the public sector who can take this up with the so-called case managers, unit managers, managers etc.
Even the State Administrator, the Oslo District Court, the Court of Appeal, the Oslo City Council and the Government at the Ministry of Local Government (they have different names at all times) do anything if you turn to them to win against this toxic and vile agency!

We have sent many questions to PBE, and have not received an answer in the vast majority of cases!

It would be far too long to list them, but here are some that you can visit at PBE's website.
And maybe we'll get some answers sooner or later?
This is a criminal and toxic agency that does not respond in general:
The whole agency is nauseating, that no one intervenes and looks at the conditions there is a mystery to me!
Norway's public administration is partially corrupt through and through, bad!
The thing is, there are also so many laws and regulations. That PBE uses everything they can against us.
When we use Norway's laws and laws and regulations against them. They get angry and usually don't answer.
It is absolutely terrible how low the public administration in Norway is.










There are far more places, but this only illustrates which agency this is.
Incompetent, dishonest and toxic.
In order not to include all the cases, surely going to write something about this?
So I will only bring this matter here.
Where it looks like we first got this as a separate issue?
Then it's been slandered, at least it's gone from PBE's own website view.

Here is one of many emails we have sent without getting a reply:
Regarding case 201708173
Questions to PBE/Appeal to the State Administrator!
Oslo 21/1. 2023

House Krokstien 2 b has a slope outside the road.
As we have asked before not received an answer.
How can it be legal and not our wall when it is claimed that it is out in the roadway?

Berit and Jan Kåre Christensen
Krokstien 2 c
0672 Oslo

Here is the picture we included, and understand very well that they do not want to answer. Since they have been checked checkmate by us.

Final comment:

The Planning and Building Agency here in Oslo actually runs an illegal agency where they dig and roll things over like a drunken sailor.
They have no control over anything, and lie in every second sentence.
And they deal with decisions and fines that are completely out of control.
What is so bad is that nobody opposes them. They are allowed to continue like this.
I simply don't get it, the whole agency is toxic and lies constantly!

No. 1610: Questions regarding what it means to be released from 1 Cor. 7.27!

No. 1610:

Questions regarding what it means to be released from 1 Cor. 7.27!

The apostle Paul and Jesus agreed, remarriage for believers is not allowed

It is entirely possible to submit questions to the Heavenly Blog.
Here is the email address for this:

Got a question in here, where I don't give a name.

Here the question is asked as to who it is that the apostle Paul speaks of in regard to being loosed (verse 27.)
1 Cor. 7. 25 As for virgins, I have no command from the Lord, but I give advice based on the mercy of the Lord and my own credibility.
26 I therefore believe that because of the need of the present, it is for people's own good to be as they are.
27 Are you tied to a woman? Don't try to get loose from her. And if you are free in relation to women, then do not try to find yourself a woman.
28 But if anyone marries, he does not sin. And if a virgin gives in marriage, she has not sinned either. But they can get into trouble in the meat, which I want to spare them.
29 This I say, brethren, because the times are perilous. From now on, even those who have wives must act as if they had none.
30 Those who weep shall be like those who do not weep. Those who rejoice will be like those who do not rejoice, and those who can buy will be like those who have nothing.
31 Those who make use of this world should act as if they make no use of it. For this world, in its present form, shall pass away.
32 I want you to be without worries. For one who has not adopted can be concerned about the things of the Lord and about how to please the Lord.
33 But a married man worries about the things of the world and how to please his wife.
34 There is a difference between a woman and a virgin, because she who has not given in marriage worries about what is of the Lord so that she can be holy both in body and in spirit. But one who has given in marriage worries about the things of the world and how to please her husband.
35 I say this for your own good, not to lay a trap for you, but that you may live as befits one who wants to serve the Lord without hindrance.
36 But if someone thinks that he has acted unjustly against a virgin because she has passed her prime, and he feels guilty that it has become so, he should let her do as she wishes. She does not sin. Let her marry.
37 But she who stands firm in her heart and does not have a need, but has authority over her own will and who judges in her heart that she still wants to be a virgin, does well.
38 Therefore she who gives to the real does good. And she who does not give for real, also does good.
39 A woman is bound by the law while her husband lives. But if the man has fallen asleep, she is free to marry whoever she wants, as long as it happens as the Lord wants.
40 But blessed is she if she perseveres according to my advice, for I believe that I also have of God's spirit.

As I understand the question and what was sent by, the interpretation here is in verse 26 in particular.
27 Are you tied to a woman? Don't try to get loose from her. And if you are free in relation to women, then do not try to find yourself a woman.
28 But if anyone marries, he does not sin. And if a virgin gives in marriage, she has not sinned either. But they can get into trouble in the meat, which I want to spare them.

The fact that this should be discussed as granting eligibility for remarriage sounds very far-fetched.

What the Apostle points out is for both the unmarried man and the virgin.
That a marriage will also be demanding in relation to the meat.
Do not talk about our desires etc. which are natural and God-given.
But simply, the challenges of supporting and being responsible for family and children.
Where one simply wants to inflict work and responsibility on oneself in addition to being a Jesus witness!

Can't see that this here deals with remarriage until the end of the chapter.
Where the Apostle gives the opportunity for the widow or widower to start a new marriage, if one wishes there. One is no longer bound.
It is only death that in reality gives rise to a new marriage for believers.

You further ask about the following:

Some claim that when 1 Cor 7 states divorce from one's wife, it is by divorce and not death.

It says, among other things, loosed 27 If you are bound to a woman, then do not seek to be loosed from her; if you are not bound to a woman, then do not seek a woman!

This is then nothing other than if you have a relationship with a woman.
I am married and bound. Someone who is single is "loose".
This is what the Apostle emphasizes as something positive.
Don't understand why this is actually being dragged in as a possibility for remarriage. It is also important to see God's word in the right way. E.g. Matthew is written to Jews. Then one must read Matthew with this as a background.

As I said, the scriptures are clear, it is only by death that one is "released" if one is married.

Room. 7. 1 You are not ignorant, brothers—and I speak to you who know the law—that the law has dominion over ahuman during his lifetime.
2 A woman who has a husband is bound to him, but if her husband dies, she is released from her husband's law.
3 If her husband is alive and she stays with another, she shall be called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is free from his law and is not an adulteress if she stays with another man.

Hope this gave you a better understanding.
There are always those who want to come up with straw arguments, obfuscation and the like!!

No. 1609: Going against the authorities is legitimate, right? As long as do not resort to violence!

No. 1609:

Going against the authorities is legitimate, right? As long as do not resort to violence!

There are no harmless forces behind what the planning and building authority is doing to us.
It is outright darkness and lies, and forces that will try to break us with fines and resolutions that are built solely on lies and a distortion of fact.
Where they lie i.a. regarding both how we were guided and how the fall is on our property.
In pure mafia and gangster style, they are keeping up with us, and now trying to break us with money demands that only have their origins in the dark and the lies that the public with PBE in the driver's seat are keeping up with us.
Talk about making a fuss about nothing really, just a rickety wall, stairs and shed that are aesthetically pleasing and fictional buildings. And is not illegal a place, only in the dark and hateful hearts and minds of the authorities.



I have received some criticism for going against the Planning and Building Agency here in the capital (Oslo, Norway). Others defend me.
I myself believe that it is legitimate and necessary to be allowed to defend oneself against an assault such as this case of ours from beginning to end?!
It feels like PBE and the public are lying, distorting the truth and protecting each other in the purest mafia style. The only difference is that they don't use force. But lying decisions, defending each other and lying.
All for a poor wall, it's absolutely, absolutely crazy that they turn themselves into thugs for a very simple wall. Isn't this narcissistic and primitive?
For us, me and my wife, this is completely meaningless, that the public make themselves thugs and act in the purest mafia style only for a pretty and functional wall, stairs and storeroom.
It is absolutely incredible that the authorities in Norway will behave like a Mafia movement with lies, rule and unity to get us.
Only for a wall, stairs and storage room. Don't understand that they are willing to sink to such a low level for something that we have built which is in the most beautiful order.
What a savagery and brutality with fines and charges that are completely beyond the pale!
Talk about shooting sparrows with a cannon like the authorities are doing to us!
Look at Viggo Kristiansen, and the cousin of Birgitte Tengs

This is just one of a number of judicial murders here in little Norway.
The truth is that there are far more, and they all have something in common.
It was that they didn't get to defend themselves, and they didn't have their own blog and other things like I have.

Here I have at least been allowed to present our case without being slandered as we are on Oslo Municipality's websites.

Also, the press and all other actors are more or less silent towards us.
The only ones who have written about our case are Kjell Andersen and Søkelys.

I have understood something, it is that the "watchdog" that the press is supposed to be

Is more to be seen as a kind wagging poodle towards the Norwegian authorities and the public sector.
Another real "watchdog" that the press should have been.
One is almost terrified of writing against, and the truth about, the authorities and the public sector.
Don't understand why. Here in our case it is a direct assault!

How credible is our justice system?
Judicial murders abound, and this has been going on for many years.

Isn't this interesting and significant? Here we are two people - a simple married couple who have gone unpunished.

Being treated like the worst criminals with fines and decisions completely, completely beyond?

Here we are tried to deny the real fall that we have on our property!

We were guided how to build this wall.

Right, then we should apply. But then it turns out that our wall is actually legal. Why? The decline in our property is precipitous, PBE and the public are trying to acknowledge this.
They will deny the fact. The authorities stand for lies, lies and yet more lies!

Very serious that they ignore the facts of the matter here, that they base it on a lie. The lie is that we have a flat plot of land and property, when we don't.
But steep.
The drawings they use as a basis only show how wrong they are.

Final comment

What should one do when one is subjected to abuse by the authorities?
Of course it isn't easy to answer, but always letting the lunatics and abusers win I think is not a good thing.
We fight back, and leave everything in God's hands!
Sooner or later justice will prevail.
Either in this life or in the life to come!
Word. 11. 5 The righteousness of the blameless makes his way straight, but the wicked falls by his wickedness.

For us, it is absolutely incredible that the authorities allow lies, abuse and other things to be the standard.
They are unable to answer the simplest questions. And if they answer, then there is always such an excessive to our rear.
The whole case is rotten and testifies to what demonic powers are behind the public here in this matter.
Because it is of course Satan and the demons that make people behave like this, it is not normal at all!
