Nr. 308: Recommendation as Evangelist and preacher!

Nr. 308:

Recommendation as Evangelist and preacher!

I got approx. 25 years since the recommendation preacher in Philadelphia Oslo, for me, I experienced not as the great! It was the recommendation I've gotten before it came to me saying that they mark, knew or felt that I had a calling to preach that what has been important for me later! Illustration Filadelfia Church in Oslo.

It is they who contacts me and asks if I have been appointed, asked for and has been recommended as a preacher. Fair enough safe, and this is what much to say and to write about.

When I got my recommendation as a preacher in Philadelphia Oslo at the end of the 80th century. Then it was all well and good, but it was more that it would be easier for me to get input that preaches around! I have preached for approx. 100 different churches around here in Norway. And some in the U.S. I have witnessed. In fact, the U.S. got very good input right away when I was there in 1993.

What has been most significant for me was when Bjarne Staalstrøm who served in the free friends came after a meeting I had testified in 1982 and said I had a calling and equipping a preacher. It hit me in the heart and when he explained things around this. Among other things, the way I ordla me, although I was then newly saved and came from a secular background. He said that God had given me light and insight into God's words spoke for themselves what he had put in my heart and what he had called me. This also voted with what I had experienced, but it was very good and nice to get a confirmation like this.

When I got the recommendation preacher in Philadelphia Oslo, I was asked for by many prominent Pentecostal preachers. As His Black Dahl, David Ostby, Emanuel Minos and I also believe Morgan Kornmo. After I had been asked for on Monday at the church meeting and had been recommended and appointed a preacher and Evangelist. Then on the following Sunday came and Evangelist Dr. Emanuel Minos up to me and said: "Thou shalt not be proud when it goes good for you, and you should not give up when the bytes received." This I have followed since then, and I intend also to follow if Emanuel Minos is now completely out of control!

Recommendation of people have meaning if they recognize what God has put in than life and heart to God.

I believe only what I have produced here on the blog and on our website speaks for itself that God has both called me and gave me a piece of equipment that preach and teach God's word. So have a think and I know, the rest is in the hands of Almighty God. Everything, both family life and service to God!

This is from my commentaries Galatians 1 10 I am now seeking to be recognized by people - or of God? I might try to do to please men? Were there still people I would be pleased, I would not be Christ's servant. If a gospel teaches us, but another gospel can not give us eternal life, "another gospel would pervert the gospel of Christ." The Bible clearly emphasizes that it is not granted permission to a different gospel than the gospel of Jesus Christ, who is from God. Even engleåpenbarelser can not shake this. 11 I tell you, brothers: the gospel I preached is not man's work. This gave him the authority on a par with the twelve. He was not inferior to those which some saw as "the apostles", 2nd Kor. 11, 5: "... I am in no way inferior to these" he writes. This view of himself and his vocation was crucial for the apostle. 12 I have not received or learned by any man, but by Jesus Christ revealed himself to me. I thank God for Bible teachers. They open up the scriptures to us and reveals the many wonders and mysteries of the faith. But the fact is that the revelation of Jesus Christ can not be learned. It must be given by the Holy Spirit. And it comes to those who, like Paul, shut themselves in their Arabia, determined to know Christ. This quality separates the two basic types of Christians. One of the battle says: "I gave my heart to Jesus" - but that's all they can argue about his faith. They rejoice that they are going to heaven and not to destruction. But they do not go further in their walk with Christ. The other type says, "I gave my heart to Jesus - but I will not be satisfied until I know his heart." This server will not rest until he carries the burden of Christ, walk as Christ walked, pleasing to God as Christ pleased God. Such determination may simply not be taught. But be warned, however - if you truly want Jesus to give you his heart, so you must be prepared to undergo suffering. Indeed, the revelation of Christ, you will receive will be accompanied by suffering and tribulations as you've never experienced it before. Paul says that he received revelations from God that had been hidden from human eyes for centuries. "It was not at earlier ages made known to the children of men as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit." (Eph. 3:5). When Paul speaks of receiving revelations (see 2 Cor. 12:7), so he uses a word that means "take away from the deck, open up hidden things." God took away the lid from the big mysteries of faith - and he showed Paul miracles in his salvation. Finally, Paul refers to a very important vision he received some fourteen years earlier, just after he had been saved. He describes being "caught up to the third heaven ... and heard unspeakable words, which is not lawful for a man to speak." (2 Cor. 12:2-4). In short, Paul was given an unspeakable revelation from heaven. What an incredible abundance of the revelations that Paul was given! He experienced an incredible journey through the sky and saw and heard things that had never been seen in this world. 13 You have heard about how I came up when I lived as a Jew, how violently I persecuted the church of God and tried to destroy it. Jesus himself says in Mat 5.11, "Yes, Blessed are ye when they revile you and persecute you and lie all manner of evil upon you, for my sake." Jesus was mocked and persecuted, therefore, also his faithful expect to be there, but precisely because they are blessed. There is a story about Peter and John that they were scourged, and it was commanded them that they should not speak in the name of Jesus. So says the Word of God: "They went away from the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name" Acts 5.41. The apostles saw it as a mercy from God that they had to suffer for Christ. The apostle Paul says in 2 Timothy 3.12: "And all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." In other words, those who love Jesus Christ and to live in communion with him in accordance with God's commandments and admonitions, he or she will be persecuted. In Norway, we're not a direct physical stalking, but we have verbal persecution that occurs in different ways. Whoever wants to hold on to God's word and commandments, and live by them, are often discriminated against, ridiculed and scorned. But the apostle James writes that we should only pay attention for joy when we come in many trials (James 1:2). The Apostle Peter says in 1 Peter 1.6: "Therefore rejoice ye with joy, even though now for a little while, when it shall be, grief in various trials." God's Word encourages us thus to rejoice and be glad, even though we have trials and sufferings. So how did the Lord's apostles? Most of the martyred. The Apostle John was banished to the island of Patmos "for the word of God and Jesus' testimony of guilt" (Rev. 1.9) and later died in Ephesus. 14 I went further in my Judaism than most peers in my people and was even more fierce for the traditions of their fathers. Paul was what we would call for extreme and wholeheartedly. He was the most whole-hearted and the one that went furthest in persecuting the Christians. He not only pursued them in their own homeland, but also outside Israel. 15 But God, who separated me from the womb and called me by his grace, decided that he would Prior Determination for his vocation and ministry, there are other men and women in the Bible who has experienced such. Jeremiah. I think I found today. But most people get way laid in front of them and they are attracted to the choice, would you go or let each? The choice is then the individual! 16 reveal his Son to me, that I might preach him to the Gentiles. Then I consulted not with people. There are choices that are required to be taken in private with God. After all, the individual who will carry the call, message and be the instrument. Human recognition and help come and will always be # 2 and as a possible confirmation. God is our best business partner and advisor! Related links:
