Nr. 161: I can not help you, but God can!

Nr. 161:

I can not help you, but God can!

File. 4. 19 And my God shall be according to his riches supply all your need in glory in Christ Jesus.


There are some who believe that when one starts a new church that does it because that everything will be easier and it is because the adaptive problems. More errors can not really take, all about a spiritual conviction and a calling from God to do what one does. Paul says:

1. Kor. 9. 16 For though I preach the gospel, there is nothing to boast of, it is a necessity incumbent upon me: for woe to me if I preach not the gospel! 17 For I do this voluntarily, then I pay, but I do nødtvunget, then it is a household that is entrusted to me.

Woe is me, Paul says, yes it is not that one have found it and want it, there is a divine calling behind.


There are very many who come to us who have been on a spiritual "round trip". They have tried all the churches and so they should try us. This switch is usually always wrong, we have, of course, much less to offer than others. But we have something that no one else has: we have the revelation of God's words as few and no one else has. This is where the difference between us and others.

Acts 3. 1. But Peter and John went up together in the temple at the hour of prayer, which was the ninth. 2 And it was brought forward a man who was a cripple from his mother's womb, and that they daily put on the tempeldør called it fair to ask those who went into the temple, on alms. 3 When he saw Peter and John, who would go into the temple, he prayed to receive an alms. 4 But Peter looked intently at him with John, and said, Look at us! 5 He then gave heed unto them, for he expected to get any of them. 6 But Peter said: Silver and gold I own is not, but what I have, that I give thee: In Jesus Christ of Nazareth - get up and go! 7 Then he seized him by the right hand and lifted him up, 8, and immediately got his feet and ankle strength, and he jumped up and stood and walked around, and he followed them into the temple and walked around there and ran and praising God. 9 And all the people saw him walk around and praise God, 10 and they knew him, they saw that he was the one who sat at the fair tempeldør to receive alms, and they were full of amazement and horror at what had happen to him .

Silver and gold were not apostles, but the power of God. Today, the church silver and gold, and they have not as beggar themselves to it also with promise of God's "blessing." But God's power they lack. This is where the difference lies. We do not have much to offer, that's what you have to offer and to share the vision with us about the church!

The vision for Smyrna Oslo

Kol. 1. 25 for server I have been after the God's household that is given me among you, that is, to complete the word of God, 26 the mystery which hath been hid from ages and generations beginning, but now is made manifest to his saints, 27 for whom God would make known the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ among you, the hope of glory. 28 And to him we proclaim as we admonish every man and teaching every man with all wisdom to present every man perfect in Christ. 29 For this, I work and, as I was in conflict with his power, which seems to me with strength.

Now I do not compare me to Paul, but it is to preach the whole counsel of God to salvation is Smyrna Oslo's "goal"! Are you interested in all aspects of the word of God be preached and lived, then Smyrna Oslo the right place and the "right" church for you dear friend!

The vision and purpose and to Smyrna Oslo

Why start a new church? Is not it NOK churches? Needed it once or more?

How could I continue.

But I believe that God has called me to start, operate and build the church here in Oslo City.

Now there is much I can write about this and end the chapter is neither written.

We actually started this church in the autumn of 1990. And then we had a much greater progress and support one we now have. At most, we were about. 25 pieces in the meetings. Today it has been the most about. 10 pieces. But the number is not essential.

The first time we ran the church, it was wonderful, good and proper. How I think it is also now we have not had the great success yet! I think the progress and the possibilities are much greater now that apostasy is so large understand the established churches. Word of the Lord is expensive and of visions and revelations are scarce.

The first time we ran the church Smyrna Oslo we put it down because of financial reasons. But it was basically disbelief on my part. We had bought an apartment that was too small for us when we had two young daughters, then (only one bedroom). We broke up and moved to the West Coast. But one can learn from their mistakes, believe it never was God's perfect will, God's only legitimate purpose.

But God is good. After many years in western God called us back to Oslo in 2005. We settled ourselves first on Skullerud before we bought the \ built the house we now live in the Mortensrud.

Both my wife and I have had good jobs and everything has gone right for us as a family. God is and will remain good and faithful if we are faithless.

We have been a part of the Pentecostal contexts after we moved back to Oslo with mixed success.

However, control and man-management is great within its all too many churches. Even there also. It has been one of the main reasons that my family realized that it is difficult to serve God within its established churches which control "hangs" in the walls. And the relationships between each other is very weak.

But when we advertised and began with open meetings 6 September in 2009, as a large and heavy stone was rolled from my shoulders. Finally.

Oldest daughter of my said it time and time again. You did not come to Oslo for anything other than to start the church, so true, so true.

Actually, we had quite excellent on the west coast in every way.

What is our vision and mission?

Very much!

I have an article about the church in Ephesus. Being such a church is my goal.

I have my wishes and dreams. But one need both to ask God what you will. And see the reality.

Reality now is that I must have my regular job and run the church on time.

The desire is to quit my job and run the church full time. But when I depend on God and human support.

Do you have faith and do you need a Word church?

Where a study God's word and do everything we can to live it?

This is where my call is Oslo, which is to make disciples.

Pray for me, family, business and service.

Support us financially so that God will be realized.

We all rely on good and faithful employees.

You are God's farmland Paul said about the church.

What it helps with good grain if it is not a ground to put it in? Nothing.

Therefore, I also dependent brothers and sisters to support me in ministry and the task in the operating Smyrna Church in Oslo.

Will you be with? Come to the meetings. Join. Support financially and in prayer. With the gift and ministry God has given you. We need you.
The vision for the Smyrna church is first and foremost to keep the word of God. Both in life and learn!

Make that the first Christians who preached the counsel of God for salvation (Acts 20, 27 for I held nothing back, but preached unto you the whole counsel of God).

Come and join the party is already started singing Hans Inge Fagervik in an old song. You are invited to the meal, the party is already underway. Would you like to join, you must respond by answering yes Thank you. And come to join.
The choice is yours. Good luck with your choice dear brother and sister. And all the others are also very welcome in the name of Jesus to be with!
