Nr. 52: Where I want to go in preaching! What is the vision of Smyrna Oslo?

Nr. 52:

Where I want to go in preaching! What is the vision of Smyrna Oslo?

Ord. 11. 25 The blessing, to thrive, and those who were burned others, he is self-quenched.

I get emails and phone calls from different people. It is the strangest claims one hears, and many people know much more about me and my family and Smyrna Oslo than I do! All this is by and large nothing more than people with a very large ego that knows better than God himself about too much, why is it that the rule as soon as it arrives.

My whole life has really been about living for others than myself. Forever gone to work, living for the family and the ministry God has given me. All tasks and everything else I've pretty much always done their best, even before I got saved. Therefore, I can say that the apostle Paul that I have lived my life with good conscience. But as Paul says of himself, so must I say that I am not thereby acquitted, for God sees the hidden and it is he who is judge of the secret as well as the obvious.

Acts 23. 1. Then Paul insists on the council, saying, Brethren! with all good conscience, I brought my subsistence for God until this day.

But I have far to go, though! Therefore I want and I live as Paul says to Filipenserne. And who does not have far to go? I know of no one who does not.

File. 3. 12 Not that I have already caught it or already perfect: but I'm chasing after it, if I can grasp it, since I was caught by Christ Jesus. 13 Brethren I do not think about myself that I have caught it. 14 But one thing I as I forget what is behind, and stretching me out for what is ahead, I pursue the goal, to win the prize for which God has called us there from above in Christ Jesus. 15 Let us then, as many as are perfect, have this mind, and I is different from the mind of something, then God will also reveal to you this, 16 just that, so far we have come, hold up the same track!
I have made many mistakes, though I've never done the really big blisters as far as I know. But I and all need God's grace every day and even more grace to go on with the Lord.

When a shift

Now I feel that we are at a change in many ways. We have worked night and day for 2 years with the website. In my opinion it is the best site on the Christian front here in Norway, for example. in terms of content and what gets served to develop in healthy and straight to the spiritual realm. I am very happy been, and will not work so much with the website now, except to begin with Bible commentaries and write a little blog as it enters new questions and if something special comes up!

What lies ahead

There is much that lies ahead. What will happen? I have a vision and a dream about something. Things start out very often with a desire, thought and idea. There are many who see a negative impact on our business, but God has promised in a special way to be with us believers, and especially those who go way of the Lord 100%.

2. Chron. 16. 9a The Lord's eyes dangers of all the earth that he with his power to support those whose heart is completely with him.

My experience is that when one has a vocation, mission and ministry of the Lord, he will also participate in a special way. And make a mistake and fail, as a side benefit bill for it. Will briefly talk a little bit about this here.

Smyrna Oslo 20 years ago

I had gone to preach in the Pentecostal movement with a recommendation from Filadelfia Oslo, both as a leisure preach and teach full time all over Norway. Before we started Smyrna Oslo 20 years ago I had visited about. 100 different churches and most Pentecostal churches, but also some free friends, Maranta, mission related and Frelsarmeen. So I was at the end of 20 years and "experienced". But unfortunately I was not "experienced" NOK when problems and tribulations come. I chose the simplest and stupidest solution, not good!

Proverbs 24:10 Showing you yourself discouraged in the day, so is your power ring.

God was good when we ran Smyrna Oslo the first time, all let to settle in many ways better than now. We had people with us and with the financial support was also better than now, most of it was good. We got your game on the business of renting is also a separate room in town in the Good Templar's premises in Mills Street 38 in 2 floor But what did I? What I should and should do. We had bought a small but expensive apartment Vestli, location was super close to a cozy nursery and beautiful natural areas outside the door. Nothing to say about it. But it was stupid that we could have bought a three-room apartment for the same price that we turned down, how stupid can one be, it was certainly in a different place, but still. This was NOK God's guidance, but we were both disobedient. The apartment we bought had only one bedroom. (That was what was the real problem, only one bedroom and we had been disobedient and stupid not to buy the other apartment).
In 1992 my wife unemployed and redundant in the DNB where she worked and I was without a job when we ran Smyrna Oslo. We could have rented a house further down in Vestli Road and rent our own apartment and everything laid out right, so in spite of some bad choices along the way, let God's blessing, for he is faithful if we are faithless. Then we had two children, both our girls. At least Man was not born then.
It was strange how we could have rented the apartment. I prayed to the Lord for his leadership. When I was at the library on Stovner, dropped my eyes on the ad in our country on the four-room apartment for rent, and we could get it. But what did I do? Depressed and tired as I was, so I said no thanks, and we completed the project Smyrna Oslo. We thought to take a break and rented out our apartment which we later sold at great loss, and so we moved a little time the plan was in any case, to Karmøy. This period was a time of 12-13 years, talk about the long break.

But God does not give up, thanks and praise for it! We had a really all-time at Karmøy, but deep down I felt particularly that we were not in God's perfect will for our lives that we NOK was not either. If one has work, house, home and car and everything is just good, it's not external things that say if one is in God's will, but inside the heart of everything that is in place. It is very important if one knows whether one is in God's will or not.

I therefore began around 2002/03 to look for a suitable place for us to move back to Oslo. Of course it was not as easy as we had built ourselves a very good house on Karmøy with 100 kvm2 terrace and double garage with separate living room, etc. good jobs we had and everything was really just welfare. But not in my heart, where I had a nagging feeling that we were not serving the Lord in his perfect will for our lives.

Eventually I came across an apartment at Skullerud online that was a perfect fit for us. It would be built and I traveled by air in February 2004 and signed a contract with BN brokers and God do everything to facilitate and financially even if the majority of our capital was tied up in the new house we had built on Karmøy. We had decided Oslo.

The final package on Hydro

When everything was decided for Oslo and the family agreed, after much back and forth. After we had signed a contract, specific management of Hydro that they would downsize and they would announce any severance packages. I was one of the lucky ones who got, and it was very good when I had worked at Hydro for 10 years and they covered 13 months. salaries and they covered the transportation of our assets over to Oslo, which was of 30-40 thousand. One such blessing was really wonderful, so we could take it easy when we got to Oslo, and we could apply for a job in peace and quiet without a financial pressure, it was wonderful!

We went into the Pentecostal movement again, which I really wanted, but his wife wanted. It was okay but it was not God's will, God's perfect will. As often happens, so it was no problem and when I had the opportunity with family's blessing to start Smyrna Oslo in September 2009, almost 20 years after we discontinued Smyrna Oslo in June 1992. Is not the Lord good? JAAAA !!!!!!!!!

Now we are in God 100% will, Hallelujah!

It is of course not everything goes our way, but very much. But the inner peace and satisfaction is there. There is an inner drive and confidence, in spite of external circumstances that are changing and uncertain. What then is the program further? I do not know fully, but something we have succeeded, something we have not succeeded.

Predictions. 11. 1. Send your bread out of the water, because in the years to find it again.

I know as I said not everything, but both my wife and I have good jobs here in Oslo, and we have a new and good houses here on Mortensrud, but it is meant in a year that we sell here and move to Hellerud top when we to build a new house and hopefully the last house we build. Has built a house and this is the third house I build or is responsible for and are the first to move in, ask for this that all adds up to facilitate both the construction, sale of property here on Mortensrud and economic, to which believe in what we are doing here in Smyrna Oslo.

What's ahead

What's ahead? Part I of thoughts and ideas.
Should briefly mention some of what has been good, and what I have of thoughts and dreams. I think God has put into my heart and mind, what would later be presented and will be a blessing and help of many!

What we have succeeded

1) We have managed with the help of God to establish ourselves here in the capital, that we thank God for.

2) We are getting started with the church Smyrna Oslo again and have laid a foundation for the church in all areas, also on the doctrinal level.

3) We have built up within two years it must be the most content-rich site with video instruction, Bible commentaries, Bible overview, articles, links, books, two blogs, one Norwegian and one in English, etc. This is just wonderful and delightfully !

What we have not succeeded but want to succeed with

1) Gather as many people around the church and its activities that it becomes an established business in order to gather as a church, not only as a community.

2) for rent and later buy our own premises, we have rented for 1 1 \ 2 years Sinsen in Esperanto, but we were not able to gather so many that it was prudent to hire, therefore we have the business pretty much at home here with us in our house. Want to continue as we move closer to the city about a year to Hellerud top of meetings there, but preferably rent a separate room, ask for it you who believe in and for our business.

3) Buy a separate room around the Alna district that is our "core" area that I know God has spoken to me that the business will assume. But we do not want to commit ourselves 100% to this, as it is the city of Oslo, we should first and foremost!

4) If successful in getting finished biblical commentary and anything else on the web. Want to keep more of video lessons on the net with a separate panel which I will call for the Study of God's word or anything like that.

This is briefly what we have gone through and what's ahead, and pray for us, support us financially and promote their business, if possible, to come to the meetings to advise us. God bless you and yours in the Lord Jesus Christ.

This is from my commentaries Ephesians 6 18 Do this in prayer, and put it all to God! Ask at any time, in the Spirit! Watch and keep praying earnestly for all Christians,

To take on the whole armor of God and fight the spiritual battle can be a hard slog and hard work. But he has not called us to a sofa toilers, but to work in his vineyard, as members of his body, as voluntary helpers and active Christians in the congregation and church. Much has the character of work.
So it is with prayer. It is not intended that the prayer should be a leisure activity only when you have nothing to do. It pays to set aside time for prayer, but prayer is also resting. Jesus says to his weary soldiers for the gospel and the cause of peace, "Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matt.11, 28

19 for me. Pray that the right words must be given to me when I speak, so I can boldly proclaim the gospel secret

Paul wanted to preach in a right way of the gospel secrets. Here there is a lot. To name a few truths here it is Jesus' death on Calvary who defeated Satan. But this is only a beginning for all of God's secrets.

20 that I am an ambassador for here in prison. Pray that through the gospel must have boldness to speak as I should.

Now he sat in prison, this was part of God's plan. When he had time and opportunity to write the letters we have from his hand today. Without his "break" we had NOK not had all the good letters. The fact that God allows things to happen, even the negative is usually a part of his large and significant plan and purpose (end of quote).

Is Smyrna Oslo justified?

Is Smyrna Oslo an option among many or option? I can of course not the full answer for, but who else? The vast majority of churches, denominations and movements have been left behind on the road and do not go on with God in the way that God wants and it's given promises and opportunities to us in Christ. They work either with a whore buck as Jan Hanvold, with a lapsed Lutheran state church that accepts empty homosexual and or all of the Lutheran movement accepts baptisms etc. Yes, Smyrna Oslo, God willing, I am fully convinced. Do not hope and believe that what happened when God's Son, Jesus Christ wept over Jerusalem because they did not know his time spent on back here now in Oslo? There are many, many people believe the same as us, but it is also important, proper and necessary that support us in every way and do not send cash Vision Norway and other apostates and seductive Christian organizations and congregations. Support the Lord's servants, and it will go well for both yourself and those you support. All we are in need and need each other's help, support and prayers, not least in this in many ways anti-Christian era where everything goes to for a climate shift and a change in the whole world that the world has never seen or will see again.
First appearance of the Antichrist in 7 years, then the Son of God Jesus Christ reign and rule this earth for 1000 years with all their. Take the choice today, make a choice now, who will you earn? Will you serve the Lord and be obedient to him? Or will you walk on the wide road that leads to disaster? Or the narrow road that leads to life? Whoever is with Jesus and all his saints. The choice is yours dear friend, neither I nor anyone else can or should take that choice for you. You even determine how your life will be here in time and in the coming era. As you sow, so one reaps. This is biblical irrevocable words and message for all of us here are not exempt! Even I have preached this!

Gal. 6. 7 Be not deceived; God let him not mocked: for what a man soweth, that shall he reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh will reap corruption from the flesh: but he that soweth to the Spirit will reap eternal life of the Spirit. 9 But let us do good and not be tired! for we shall reap in their time, unless we are tired. 10 Let us therefore, as we have apartment there, do good to everyone, but most against the faith's own people!

Joy of mature

I have in no way thought the idea of ​​adding the Smyrna Oslo or our website. We now have three websites. This is our website and two blogs, one Norwegian and one in English. Everything is going our way, in spite of external circumstances. I have learned that God calls you in, will enjoy. But it will be days you could plan to end everything. Not least when one is in management and in the front. But what is the alternative? There are not as far as I can see it, it will certainly be very difficult with my preaching to enter an established church since the majority of churches and denominations are so controlling and will never accept my preaching when the breaks at several points with their opinion, no matter what church or denomination that will be.

I think for example that the entire charismatic movement is more or less occult. Trinity doctrine and Jesus only doctrine is equally unbiblical. Baptism in the three titles, or three denominations are unbiblical and totally grammatically incorrect, the early Christians baptized people in the Lord Jesus Christ, so should the church do it at all times!

An eternally burning hell where God will torment and torture people for eternity is the medieval Catholic doctrine. God's word speaks that all unbelievers will be destroyed after the verdict before the white throne. Remarriage is a sin and no gjengiftede preachers can cover the speaker's platform, etc. which church or churches accept such preaching and teaching? None that I know of, therefore it must be Smyrna Oslo Christensen family life, which is the alternative? There are not as far as I know.

God is good

I am aware that for many will I be misunderstood and disliked when I speak when others are silent and the teacher wrong. I think in any way that I am better than others and can not be wrong. But when one has become convinced of something, and find it to match the font as it is with confidence and joy I hold forth the word of God. Whoever speaks let him speak as the word of God. So is it so wrong to ascribe to me so many opinions that I am negative and do everything better, even as more claims. I do not know all the best, but God has shown with many things in God's word and in life that many do not see. Then there is a schism, and for some difficult to handle and tolerate it as I keep up when it gets in their religious and biased opinions and views, but I live with because I know from personal experience that it is not always easy to let himself be convinced by the new truths and new perceptions.

We shape up.

Focus on keeping up the service and the task God has given us, and further develop it and take another new step of faith and right with the Lord and the church Smyrna Oslo. I do not know what the future will bring, but God is faithful and good, and he stands behind his words and who passes his way, he has promised to support. Yes support powerful when one is fully surrendered to Him!

Kol. 4. 17 And say to Archippus (read Jan Kåre Christensen): Give heed to the service you have received in the Lord, that you execute it.
