Nr. 114: Oslo need revival! Intercession!

Nr. 114:

Oslo need revival!

Oslo need revival and Smyrna Oslo is a church for the city of Oslo, I am convinced. But above all need the city of Oslo our prayers and people who care and have compassion, sympathy and will stand up for others.


It was a book that I read in youth who have made incredible impression on me and who have followed me throughout life. It is the book: Alfred Lorenzen: Intercession purpose and power Filadelfiaforl. Given out in 1982. that was 79 pages.
There, the book discusses how important it is that we go in and goes to prayer for others than ourselves, we have many examples of this in writing what changes it creates, glory be to God and the Lamb who redeemed us from the world and to themselves !

This we need now to Oslo after what has happened in the past the time where we have the bombing, from Behring at the Government building and Utøya, present that have been killed just here in Oslo by five (5) persons the last month. here in town.

Examples of prayers from the scriptures

Want to take three (3) Examples of prayers from the scriptures. Where others pray for others and the situation resolves itself and creates change. This is selfless and in the same way Jesus prayed on the cross for anger killers that God would forgive them for they know not what they did and Stephen the first Christian martyr did the same to those who killed him as we read in Acts 7.

1.) 1. Genesis 18 16 Now the men broke up and went toward Sodom. Abraham went with, he would follow them on the road. 17 I thought the Lord, "Shall I hide from Abraham what I want to do? 18 Abraham will surely become a great and mighty nation, and in him shall all the nations of the earth be blessed. 19 I have chosen him for him to instruct his sons and descendants to keep the way of the Lord and do what is right and proper, so the Lord can let Abraham what he has promised him. "20 So the Lord said," Truly, it sounds high cry of Sodom and Gomorrah, their sins are exceedingly large. 21 Now I will go down and see if they have carried out so bad as it sounds after the complaint of those who have reached up to me, and they do not have it, I know. "
22 men turned and went toward Sodom. But the Lord was still standing with Abraham. 23 Abraham approached him and said, "Do you really tear away the righteous with the wicked? 24 If there are fifty righteous within the city? Do you want to rip them off then? Will you not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous that are there? 25 It is not your show to do that, let righteous with the wicked, so it is the just the same as the wicked. No, it's not your show! He is the whole face of the judge, should not he do what is right? "26 Then the Lord said:" If I find fifty righteous people in Sodom, I will spare all the place for their sake. "
27 Abraham was again answered and said, "Behold, I have ventured to speak to the Lord, though I am but dust and ashes. 28 What if the missing five of the fifty righteous? Will you destroy the whole city because of five? "He replied:" No, I find forty-five, I will not destroy it. "29 Abraham continued to speak to him," If there are forty? "He said. He said: "For the sake of forty I will not do it." 30 He said: "Lord, please do not be angry if I speak! What if there are thirty there? "He replied:" I will not do it if I find thirty. "31 Abraham said," Behold, I have ventured to speak to the Lord. What if there are twenty there? "He replied:" For the tjues sake I will not destroy the city. "32 He said:" Lord, please do not be angry if I speak one more time! What if there are only ten? "He replied:" For the sake I will not destroy it. "33 When the Lord had finished speaking with Abraham, he went away, and Abraham went home.

2.) 2. Genesis 17 8 Since the Amalekites came to Rephidim and joined battle with the Israelites. 9 Moses said to Joshua, "Choose you out crew, go out and fight against Amalek! Tomorrow I will set myself on top of the hill with God's rod in his hand. "10 Joshua did as Moses said, and took up the fight against Amalek. Meanwhile Moses, Aaron and Hur to the top of the heap. 11 Then went the way that so long as Moses held his hand in the air, the Israelites had the upper hand. But as soon as he let his hand fall, Amalek was the strongest. 12 Then Moses began to tire in their hands. Then they found a stone and put it right for him, it put him on, and Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on each side. So his hands were steady until the sun went down. 13 So Joshua over the Amalekites and their army with the sword.
14 As the Lord said to Moses, "Write this in a book, so you will not forget it, and repeat it for Joshua! For I will destroy the memory of Amalek from the earth. "15 When Moses built an altar and called it" The Lord is my Banner. " 16 He said: "A hand is extended from the Lord's throne. He will fight against the Amalekites from generation to generation. "

3) Acts 12. 1. At that time King Herod some of the congregation grasp and went hard up against them. 2 James, the brother of John, was executed with the sword. 3 When Herod saw that the Jews did this, he went further and also arrested Peter. It was the Feast of Unleavened Bread. 4 After he was taken, he was imprisoned, where four duty shifts of four men each were assigned to keep watch over him. After Easter, Herod would then lead him before the people. 5 Peter was sitting in jail, and meanwhile asked the congregation fervently to God for him. 6 The night before Herod was to bring him forward, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers. He was bound with two chains, and prison was guarded by sentries who stood outside the door. 7 With one stood an angel of the Lord there, and a light shone in the room. He woke Peter with a nudge in the ribs and said, "Hurry up, get up!" Fell shackles of his hands, 8, and the angel said to him: "Put on your belt and sandals yours." When he was done, said Angel: "Throw the cloak about you and follow me." 9 And he followed him out. He did not understand that the angel and what happened was something real, but thought it was a sight. 10 They passed the first and second guards and came to the iron gate that leads out of town. It opened by itself, they went out and went down the first street. There the angel disappeared suddenly for him. 11 Peter came to himself again and said, "Now I understand that the Lord really sent his angel to rescue me from Herod's hand and save me from the Jewish people now are waiting for." 12 When this had become clear to Peter, he went to the house where Mary lived, the mother of John whose surname was Mark. Many people were gathered there to pray. 13 He knocked on the front door, and a servant girl called Rode, came to close up. 14 When she recognized Peter's voice, she forgot the only pleasure to open the door, but ran in and told that Peter was standing outside. 15 "You are from the senses," they said to her. But when she insisted, they said: "It must be his angel." 16 Meanwhile, Peter continued knocking. When they opened and saw him, they were beside themselves with wonder. 17 He motioned with his hand that they should be quiet, and told how the Lord had brought him out of prison. Then he said: "Let Jacob and his brothers know this." Then he left and went to another place.

1) When Abraham had it good, had not his nephew Lot well. He had the choice to become a resident there.

1. Genesis 13 10. Then Lot out of the country, and he saw that the entire Jordan plain unto Zoar everywhere was rich in water, as the Lord's garden, the land of Egypt - it was before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.

It did seem appealing out of the human eye, but pity and pride were the people in the area affected by and they chose sin broad way, which called upon the Lord's verdict.
When God would judge them was Lot about to experience this conviction when he was one of the residents there. What did his uncle Abraham when he was told of the coming doom and destruction? He went in the negotiation and intercession for him, although he did not deserve it and should have lived to the Lord that God could have had even spoken to him.

Psalm 25 14 The Lord commune with those who fear him, in covenant with him, they counsel.

Lot did not counsel but Abraham did when God had intimacy with him. Abraham went into a prayer service for the Lot and any other righteous people there and be successful even if the verdict came. We read that God started with if there were fifty righteous there, so if the verdict does not come, but Abraham fik number down to 10, but it was only 3 just where that got the escape conviction. Intercession is not for oneself first and foremost, but for others. Prayer for others is many times healthier and by praying for others, God's blessing to come back to us. Investing in others is really investing in their own welfare. Job prayed for ever friends, and was himself cured, wonderful, wonderful and great!

Job 42 10 When Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord turned his fortunes. He gave him twice as much as he had before.

2) Here we see how prayer allows God's power and victory. When Moses asked Israel had the upper hand, but when his hand fell (was tired) was Amalek prevailed. But in verses 12-13 it says so well: "But Moses hands were heavy, they took a stone and put under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on each side. Then held his hands up steady until the sun went down. And Joshua smote Amalek and his people with the sword. "Knit together prayer is wonderful and invincible. A turn one thousand and two ten thousand, the plus is not community and pray for and with each other. And pray for the lose the world that need Jesus so precarious, even here in Norway and Oslo.

3) Here we see a little into the tremendous opportunities we have in common prayer. "All the two of you on earth agree to ask whether they should get out of my father in heaven" Matt.18, 19 Do you see prayer victory?
It was this church did when Peter was thrown into prison. Ap.gj.12, 3ff and in verse 5: "In the meantime, Peter was kept in prison. But there was heartfelt prayer to God for him by the church. "And God sent his angel, and brought Peter out of prison. Victory in prayer!
There are so many people who are thrown into disobedience and sin's prison now! But prayer in Jesus' name of the church, where two of you decide to ask, where is the victory! The prisoners are led out of prison and set free by the gospel of Jesus.

"If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed." Joh.8, 36 The victorious prayer is persistent prayer. It does not give up! "Be persistent in prayer, as you watch it with thanks to God." Kol.4, 2


Prayer for others, both alone and with others is of vital importance that God's purposes will be implemented. Prayer for others it is "normal" Christian life, then we are here on earth for people to experience Jesus and the gospel.
This is really a form of Gets Mana game, but for other than myself.
It was a prayer of victory! It was here that Jesus said "YES" to go the way of suffering and be made sin for us. On the cross was the victory executed and realized. It is finished!
Gets Manes says prayer is this: "Spoon is not my will but yours." The whole family's salvation rests in this. Was Jesus heard? Yes, God did. Jesus took the sin, suffering, God's wrath lime and emptied it. The lime is empty, not a drop left. He was obedient to the death, even death on a cross.
As fruit from Gets Manes and cross victory ranks Jesus you salvation and grace cup. "I will lift the cup of salvation," the Psalmist testifies about in Psalm 116.12-14. Here you can drink the water of life to salvation, renewal and eternal life.
Jesus had his Gethsemane, you and I have our Gethsemane. The struggle is my will and God's will. "Spoon is not my will but yours." "Thy will be done as in heaven, so on earth." God is the very best that can happen to me. It's good, pleasing and perfect will. Rom.12, 2 God always gives us the best, not second best. Therefore, we can be safe and happy when God is with us.
But the match is it; prayer battle. But here you get pray with Jesus, fight with him, and prevail with him. Victory will be when God's will is done! When the victorious spirit of the flesh, Christ overcomes you and you will prevail with Him.
All of you in prayer. "Whoever wins, he will I grant to sit with me on my throne, as I overcame, and sat down with my Father on his throne." Joh.åp.3, 21

Pray this prayer together with me, Father, in Jesus' name, send revival, raise up believers in Norway and in Oslo, which will be for you, clean your church from sin and gjengiftede people who destroy the church, God show you great and stand! Cleanse me and fill me, do the same with the others and let people get grace in spite of their sin, and low morale, have mercy and give us revival and repentance.

Psalm 103 1. By David. My soul, praise the Lord! Yes, all that is within me, bless his holy name. 2 My soul, praise the Lord, forget not all His benefits!
3 He forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases. 4 He will save your life from the pit and crowns you with kindness and mercy. 5 He fills your life with that which is good, and makes you young again as ørnen.6 Lord intervenes and Savior, let all the oppressed get their rights. 7 He announced his ways to Moses, his deeds for the people of Israel. 8 Merciful and gracious is the Lord, slow to anger and abounding in miskunn.9 He accuses not always and not forever angry. 10 He does not with us after our sins, and pays us not according to our iniquities. 11 As high as heaven is above earth, so great is His mercy toward them that fear him. 12 So far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. 13 As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him. 14 For he knows how we are made, he remembers that we are dust. 15 man days are like grass, man is as the flower of the field. 16 When the wind passes by, it's gone, where it stood on, you know no more of it. 17 From eternity to eternity Lord have mercy on those who fear him. His justice when the grandchildren 18 when the fathers keep his covenant and remember His commandments, that they live by them. 19 The Lord hath prepared his throne in heaven, he reigns as king over all. 20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, you are strong heroes, who does what he says, as soon as you hear his voice. 21 Bless the LORD, all his hosts, you his servants, who does what he wants! 22 Bless the LORD, all his creations, in all places where he reigns. My soul, praise the Lord!
