It needed a new revival and spiritual light that leads Christians "back" to the apostles and prophets teach!
Reformation, I think this and all other revivalist movements that God has raised up and sent a part of bringing the church back to himself, to the Apostolic pattern and primitive community ideals. Do they succeed? No!
Why? It is of course not easy to give simple answers to this. But the main problem is that when God does something, said the fall is always the next generation down the same intellectual level as everyone else in a greater or lesser degree. And when God reveals a truth, so skills and manage a not to interfere over even more, it looks like.
This takes some explanation. We see a link with the revival movements that God has raised up and sent, and personally I think everyone has to some extent, had something of truth in it, even those who many expect to be without past the catholic community as Adventists, Jesus only movement and Jehovah's Witnesses.
Adventists teach right about a lot, among others. a eternal damnation and the first Adventists learned a lot right about the Godhead. Jesus only movement baptize in Jesus name that the first Christians. And Jehovah's Witnesses share the believers into two groups, those who will rule and all others, even if it is opposite than the teacher. Those who will rule on earth and in heaven, and opposite, and they learn more directly about the Trinity than any others I know of all Christian churches and organizations.
Where are the believers in Norway today?
Matt. 3. 1. In those days John the Baptist stood up and preached in Judea desert 2 and saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand! 3 For it is his prophet Isaiah speaks of when he says: It is the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight! 4 But John had a garment of camel's hair and leather belt around his loins, and his food was locusts and wild honey. 5 Then took Jerusalem and all Judea and the whole country about Jordan out to him, 6 and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. 7 But when he saw many Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said to them, You brood of vipers! Who taught you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Carry therefore fruits worthy of repentance, 9, do not think I can say by yourselves, We have Abraham as our father! for I say unto you that God can raise up children to Abraham from these stones. 10 The ax is already at the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. 11 I baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire; 12 he has his kasteskovl in its hand, and he will clean his barn and gather his wheat laden, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.
Jeremiah 1 9 And the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said unto me: Behold, I have put my words in your mouth. 10 See, I set you this day over nations and over kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and break down, to build and to plant.
Corruption in the spiritual plane is the whole of Norway filled out, be aware of it. The one who lives in sin, defending one another in sin. An engaged in heresy defends another engaged in heresy. This is a chain of "believers" who hold on to their dreams. We read some of Isaiah's book is one of many books in the Old Testament that deal with this when the Christian faith and life are Initiation, and it goes from being a movement to a community.
Isaiah 5 8 Woe to you who add house to house and field to field, until there is more room back, so I will be living alone in the country. 9 In mine ears by the LORD of hosts, Surely many houses shall be desolate, large and good house will be empty; 10 for a vineyard of ten days of plow land shall provide a bat, and Homer's seed will provide an ephah. / 11 Woe to those who stand up early in the morning and chasing after strong drink, which is far beyond the evening, glowing with wine! 12 harp and harp, timpani and flute and wine they have in their drinking, but the Lord's work they see not, and his handiwork, they have no eye for. 13 Therefore my people abducted unwittingly, its great men suffer from hunger, and its multitude languishing with thirst. 14 Therefore the grave yet greedier and slats up his mouth immensely, and the dangers the noble and its multitude and its roaring swarm and all who rejoice in it. 15 And a man is bent, and the man humbled, and they overmodiges eyes will be humbled. 16 And loud is the Lord of hosts, by the verdict, and the Holy God shows himself holy by righteousness. 17 And the lamb shall graze there as on his own land, and the kingdom of earth will be desolate, and devoured by strangers. / 18 Woe to those who go on the iniquity of the lie was silent, and the sin of vognrep, 19, who say: Let him hurry, let him rush his work, so we can see it! Let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel has taken, close down, let it come, so we can teach it to know! 20 Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes and prudent in their own thoughts! 22 Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine and good at mixing strong drink, 23 those for gift giving right to one who is wrong, and take the right of the righteous!
This is so aptly on the spiritual state of Norway. They draw from a little here and add something there, so that it no longer becomes the 4 gospels but really a 5 gospel and it is not the New Testament, but some of the old and some of the new and altogether it is a stew that even Satan and his fallen angels and demons thrive and work in and through. Jesus also warned against this many places.
Joh. e. 10 1. Verily, verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not go into fårestien through the door, but rises above any other place, he is a thief and a robber.
The vast majority of churches, denominations and movements if they are not, let these thieves and robbers hold. Can name a number of thieves and robbers on the spiritual plane, then first and foremost in the Free Church part of the tenant which I know best.
Terje Hegertun is a spiritual thief and robber who enters fårestiene not through the door that is Jesus and God's word, but he jumps over the fence when he openly go out to say that Elder and Pastor service is for everyone, including women. He is then the Bible calls or as Jesus said of such: the rising of another place and he is as one who steals the word of God from each other and steal the sheep over to the evil one and his fåreflokk.
Finn Arne Lauvås and the Advent movement is engaged in replacement theology. Entire Evangeliesenteret and all that is there when they allow divorce and remarriage of an low shoes, everything is allowed in this area for them in the whole.
The entire tract and all activities arising from Vision Norway's work in the Drammen \ Hokksund is through corruption. They promise the forest if a "sow" into their work, although most that live in sin. And God never said in His word that we are so into his work and expect material blessings in this present time that surpasses what we sow in, we'll get back. But no material blessings, but persecution and much more. The entire drive there is a ormested of evil spirits and strange teachings and all that Satan stands for and represents, nothing else. Never mix God into the channel, it is blasphemous!
Egil Svartdahl and TV Vision Interactive is not something that is with the living God to do as far as they purport to be, nice and neat TV programs can not save a single human being, only the blood of Jesus. Unless the gospel and what the gospel is all about going forward, it's much better to let the weather. God does not want quantity but quality. In fact, many of morgenandaktene is much better to go to P 1 as one in which sometimes are presented with the gospel than what the TV Inter are doing is nothing but a form of Christian drama!
How could I go on, but will stop here.
What is needed? John the Baptist got the message: "Clear the way of the Lord, make his paths straight."
Jeremiah got the message: "to uproot and tear down, to destroy and break down, to build and to plant".
When we start doing the Lord's way smooth again, and gets cleared away and torn up everything and removed all the plants. Then we can later build and plant and do as John the Baptist did, pointing to Jesus and say, "Look, the Lamb of God, which taketh away sin of the world".
We must not be so concerned with simply winning new ones, but heels tell them who won and who stands for election, that it costs everything to follow Jesus, the Lord is looking for followers, not only admirers and others who want the modern Jesus. Jesus heals the sick than it is today, but he also says: "Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more".
When I think of revival, true revival when preaching a true, correct and well-conversion message. It is the balance between things that are essential if God will and can get work. It is stated in a saying: "too much and too little spoils".
We must chase and be careful on healthy spiritual balance, as does God, Amen!
Read here more about what the Apostles and the Prophet's teachings are of my commentaries Ephesians 2 20 Ye are built upon the apostles and prophets the foundation, but the cornerstone is Christ Jesus himself.
1. Kor.3: 10 By the grace of God which is given me, I have laid the foundation as a wise master builder, and another builds on, but any look at how he builds!
For no one can lay a foundation other than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
First, Paul tells the church is built on the apostles and prophets the foundation,-which is built on Jesus Christ.
No one can lay a new foundation on top of it is already there. Therefore, none have any revelation that is not consistent with God's word and an already found in the word of God and the ancient writings we have.
The Apostle John was caught up in the sky and saw the new Jerusalem.
Joh. Revelation 21: 16 And the city wall had twelve foundations, and on them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
Here John sees twelve foundation stones with twelve names inscribed.
-The names belong to the Lamb's twelve apostles. It is among the first Christians they were and it was Paul who eventually brought the word of God and the apostle John in Revelation. All revelation since is to rediscover what God has already shown its holy men of God and women. We should not draw anything from or add to. This is from my commentaries Colossians Dispenser Letter 1 25 I have become a servant of the church by virtue of the management task God has given me with you: to complete the service of God's word,
With the background he had, not least with his deep knowledge of God's word and all the Jewish regulations, he was ideal for his great mission: to complete the service of God's word. Or as it says in the 1930 translation, ie to complete the word of God. There were many aspects of Paul's teaching \ preaching that was not obvious before he brought it to light. Among other church, the rapture of the church, gifts, service, gifts and many other truths.
What about prophets?
Matt.11: 13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. . .
-After John the Baptist came to an end both the law and the prophets.
But, the strange thing is that Paul says God placed among other prophets in the churches. Lying Paul?
No, the explanation can be found in the word prophet, and that an old-Testament prophet, and one from the New Testament are two different concepts.
In the Hebrew language uses four words of the prophet, a seer (-one who could see into the future) as a mouthpiece for God - one who preached morals of the people, and the last word of a false prophet.
In the New Testament is a word that means to expound divine will in an inspired way, and to comfort, - to encourage or exhort.
1 Corinthians 14:3: But he who prophesies speaks to people, to the edification, exhortation and consolation.
Those who call themselves prophets today, believe themselves to be the sort of prophet who can see into the future and get revelations directly from God.
Let me explain exactly what I mean, and what I DO NOT mean that there should be any doubt.
When the Holy Spirit guide you in your personal life - this is a prophecy in the New Testament context.
This has never ceased.
The New Testament prophetic gift to make light of what God ALREADY has revealed in his Word-the Bible is NOT the opposite. -This has never ceased.
The Bible rules out,-is the restoration of the Old Testament prophet-office.
Faith Movement preachers claim that the Old Testament prophet-office has been restored.
However, such a thing never mentions the Bible with a single word.
Faith Movement prophets see into the future, add-on course for the body of Christ, and have revealed new teachings that are contrary to Biblical teachings.
This practice is explicitly contradicted by the Word of God, and God has laid down total ban on such activity.
All the revelations and prophecies until the Day of Judgement has already been prophesied and revealed!
God has given us the revelations and the teachings we need!
Heb.1 :1-2 God, who in the past many times and many ways spake unto the fathers by the prophets, He has in these last days spoken unto us by his Son. . .
Here the Bible tells us again that the Old Testament prophet's era is over.
God is no longer with us through these prophets, but through Jesus.
More clearly it is not possible to say that!
Today's Old Testament prophets have appointed themselves. . . They are not appointed by God.
If someone goes beyond what the Bible talks about, then they are false prophets.
21 He holds the building together, so that in the Lord grows into a holy temple,
The building is the church, the redeemed of Jews and Gentiles. We grow together into a holy temple for the Lord. Catchment area of the Holy Spirit is big in the individual's life. But unity and consensus in the Christian church does the same catchment area huge. It was the church of God Satan never wins.
Matt. 16. 18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 I will give you the keys of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. "20 And he commanded his disciples to strictly tell anyone that he was the Messiah.
5. Genesis 32 30 How could one man chase a thousand and two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, unless the Lord had given them up?
22 and through him you also are built into a dwelling for God in the Spirit.
1. Cor. 15. 28 And when all is under him shall the Son also himself submit to God who put all things under him, and God may be all in all.
Here we read that God will fyle all in all when we are home in heaven. But we are made partakers of the Spirit here and now. It's the same spirit we have now that we filled out to partake of when we get home. It's just like when we buy a house and write a contract. When writing a contract and pay a portion of the purchase price, usually 10%. Then pay the rest when the house is finished. So it is with salvation. We are part of God the Father and Christ now, by their common spirit. So are we when we get home to share in the whole "package" fully. When God will fill all in all.
