Nr. 383: Prayer diversity, opportunities and ways!

Nr. 383:

Prayer diversity, opportunities and ways!

Psalm 103 7 He made known his ways to Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.

Prayer is the inner hidden life with God that both can be expressed in words, thoughts, feelings and in our subconscious. God sees everything, then he knows what we need than before we ask him about it, yet he wants us to put everything up for him in the name of Jesus. Prayer is the believer respiratory

Prayer is as much thanks, that petition and sigh!

From my commentaries Philip Wiper letter 4 6 Be anxious for nothing! But let all that is you in the heart, come to God in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving Being worried is human but it is sin. God cares for us. Adding it all before God, write it down well (Isaiah 37). I can testify to thousands answered prayer, large and small. But I still have many needs and also unresolved answered prayer. Why does God sometimes and other times not? By asking open one up to God in their life and to others. Therefore pray regularly and be prosperous, do not give up so easily. Prayer The answer is on the way, hold out for a little time. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. A sky joy and peace of heaven shall overshadow and in us. We do not need to fuss about God every time we reach out to him. He will listen and give us what we ask for. It's keeping to pray and be active as a Christian. Spiritual laziness creates a lot of frustration and aggression. Pray, read God's word and be an active meeting thread creates peace and joy, if one makes it to the Lord.

Praise is just right and good that sigh and cry for help to God, and vice versa!

Reading the Psalms in the word of God is a true feast travel for a believer. Where we find ourselves, it is like our lives are written in advance. Just as life is diverse and changing, so are our dealings with God. We can learn that morning begins with sighs, may continue with prayer and the evening concluded with thanks. Or it could be the opposite, the morning begins with thanks and ends with sigh and cry for help. Everything is just "right", only it comes from the heart and it is natural. Here are examples of prayer in the Psalms:

Psalm 17:1 A prayer of David. Hear, O Lord, in justice, check on my cry, give ear to my prayer from lips without deceit! Psalm 102:18 He turned to the helpless prayer, and he has not despised their prayer. Psalm 102:2 Lord, hear my prayer and let my cry come to you! Psalm 102:1 A Prayer of a miserable, when he was overwhelmed and pours out his grief before the Lord. Psalm 90:1 A prayer of Moses the man of God. Lord! You have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Psalm 88:14 But I cry to you, O Lord, and in the morning my prayer comes you in the face. Psalm 109:4 In return for my love they are against me, yet I am just praying. Psalm 119:170 Let my fervent prayer come before thee! Deliver me according to your word! Psalm 142:1 A Psalm of David, when he was in the cave, a prayer. Psalm 143:1 A Psalm of David. Lord, hear my prayer, give ear to my fervent prayers, answer me in your truth, in your righteousness, Psalm 141:5 Let a righteous beat me in love and chastise me! For such head oil refuse my head him not! Items that than by, so I put my prayer against their evil. Psalm 141:2 Let my prayer be valid as incense before you, lifting up of my hands as an evening-oblation! Psalm 88:3 Let my prayer come before you, Bow down thine ear to my cry! Psalm 109:7 When he is judged, let him be found guilty, and let his prayer become sin Psalm 86:1 A prayer of David. Bow down, O Lord, thy ear, hear me! for I am poor and needy. Psalm 42:9 By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life. Psalm 54:4 God, hear my prayer, give ear to the words of my mouth! Psalm 39:13 Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear to my cry, do not be silent at my tears for I am a stranger with thee, a guest like all my fathers. Psalm 35:13 For I clothed me in mourning, when they were sick, I racked my soul with fasting, and my prayer returned to my bosom. Psalm 6:10 The Lord has heard my earnest petition, the Lord accepts my prayer. Psalm 55:2 Give ear, O God, to my prayer, and hide thee not for my earnest petition! Psalm 61:2 Hear, O God, my cry, check on my prayer! Psalm 84:9 O Lord, God of hosts, hear my prayer! Give ear to, Jacob! Sela. Psalm 4:2 When I call, then answer me, my righteous God! In distress you have given me rum, be gracious me and hear my prayer! Psalm 80:5 O Lord, God of hosts how long have you let your anger smoke without noticing your people pray? Psalm 69:14 But I'm going with my prayer to thee, Lord, in time of grace, God, for your mercy megen, answer me with your saving faithfulness! Psalm 66:20 Blessed be God, who rejected my prayer and did not take his mercy from me! Psalm 86:6 Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer, and check on my heartfelt prayers voice!

Thanks and praise shall never be put up against prayer and cry for help to God, all things are in a healthy and normal Christian life

Prayer is to meet their needs in one Almighty God!

From my commentaries Philip Wiper letter 4 19 And my God, who is glorious riches in Christ Jesus, give you everything you need. This passage is one of the finest in the whole Bible. It speaks of God's infinite wealth. He will give of their wealth. The more God gives the more he has to give. There is an ocean of infinity. We promise to get everything we need for spirit, soul and body. 20 Our God and Father be glory forever and ever! Amen. Paul had a Jewish and biblical understanding of God the Father, he shall have all the glory for all eternity. After 1000 årsriket and judgment for the white throne, Jesus will give the kingdom back to the Father. 1. Kor.15. 27 For everything he put under his feet. That's all, it is clear that God is exempt. It is God who put all things under him. 28 But when all things are subjected him shall the Son also himself be subject to God who put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

Prayer is God's way of raising us and that we will come to know Him and ourselves to know

I am convinced that we believers have always answered prayer, but a no, wait, or that we will answer prayer omkledd is all because he loves us and wants us all well!

Psalms in the Old Testament is an inexhaustible source and enrich the praying believers and laudatory

It is a book of the Bible, or 150 psalms in the Old Testament that is priceless and such an enrichment to a believer, they show us how we can expect and have it as a believer in this world in our prayer communion with God. Where all aspects of our lives going forward and expressed in hymns. Read them, often daily, study them. La main focus will always be God, not yourself or other people. Expect answers to prayer, thank God for everything and be happy. You are on your way to the New Jerusalem to meet Jesus and God the Almighty! Better than that, it is completely impossible to get it!

From my commentaries Hebrews 5 7 At that time Jesus lived on earth, bathroom and he pleaded with loud cries and tears him who could save him from death, and he was heard for because he was godly. In the Garden of Gethsemane, we see how the rewarding Jesus was the Father's will. Father had even decided that Jesus his Son to die for all human sin! But for Jesus - as a person - it was a struggle to implement it. 8 Though he were a Son, he learned obedience through what he suffered. Jesus was the first Father created and which it is paid attention to himself like. Yet had he stood willingly. First, in order to please the Father, then to suffer and die for us. 9 When he had made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; But the fight, disgrace and all that was fully match ended on the cross. After the cross came exaltation which went into two divisions. Resurrection and Ascension. Through all this, he has provided a complete salvation for all. 10 God had then given him the name of the High Priest Melchizedek. But even before creation, Jesus was destined to be all these things that Paul mentions here. Joh. AD 17 5 And now I ask you, Father, give me the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

As believers it goes upward, forward and home

As a rule, our biggest problem in life selfishness and self-gratification, therefore it is to have your eyes fixed on Jesus, even in the time of trial. The focus is Jesus, even when we have difficulties that are as big as a mountain. Then we count on him over the mountains, it is God himself!

From my commentaries Hebrews 12 1. When we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles us, and perseverance the race that is set before us, This cloud of witness is all that has gone before us and who have stood out during and fight. They cheer us up today so that we will reach the goal; sluttfrelsen. Then we put the burden upon, it can be as well not directly, sin. And sin will destroy 100% safe for us on the path of faith. Endure speaks of the Christian life is more like a marathon race to rain than a 100 meter run! 2 with eyes fixed on Him who is the author and finisher of our faith, Jesus. To get the joy he had in store, he endured the cross, without despising the shame, and now he sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. We have read about many heroes of faith but they are all people with limitations and deficiencies as all of us. The only thing that we are constantly in all parts can have as a role model in all things is the Lord Jesus. Jesus endured the suffering of God's life since then came exaltation. How is he a role model and example for all of us. With eyes fixed on Jesus is also keeping in Christian life, people disappoint and fail. Also one even makes it worse sometimes. 2. Tim. 2. 13 If we are faithless, he is faithful, for he can not deny himself. 3 Yes, Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, lest you become weary and discouraged. Think of him, says the author. It is healthy and just think about Jesus. And we will also leave his word dwell among us. We get tired and you get bored. Then we let the focus be Christ and not ourselves. Resistance, we must reckon with. And get discouraged too, then the solution to this as all other areas of the Christian life. Jesus and having his eyes and thought revolved around him. 1. Cor. 1. 30 You are his in Christ Jesus, who has become our wisdom from God, our righteousness, sanctification and redemption, 31 that those who glories, let him glory in the Lord, as it is written.

Final Comment: The Worship Choir is very often fussy and monotonous, why? Because doing the same movement toward God all the time, this is also the Bible warns against. We should be natural, devoted and surrendered God and come within its Him with everything, our joys and failures. Everything he hears, only it comes from the heart and we come within its the only true God in Jesus' name!

Nr. 382: When that happens "false" answers to prayer, who is behind it and what then?!

Nr. 382:

When that happens "false" answers to prayer, who is behind it and what then?!

"Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my heavenly Father. Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy Names, driven out demons in Your name, and done many miracles in thy name? And then will I profess to them, 'I never knew you. Depart from Me, you who are doing lawlessness! "Matt. 7:21-23 (Lawlessness from Greek: anomia.) Bible Publishers, 1995 review.

There are many who ask and receive answers to prayer, that is not to say that there are people that God is pleased when he sends rain on both good and evil. Pastor Jan Hanvold fetch approx. 100 million Christians in Norway, but when the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch, Jesus said, let the word of God should always be the rule of life and learning, everything else is a forgery and a fraud!

From my commentaries Hebrews 6 7 The earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for the benefit of those who cultivate it, getting blessing from God. Even if one is not penalized once the verdict is waiting. God is generous and allows his blessing also "frame" all! 8 But the earth which bears thorns and thistles, it is to no avail. The curse is not far away, and it ends with it being blasted. It urges the author to be unfruitful. Sooner or later, their choices have consequences. Christ is the fulfillment of all the Old Testament and Judaism pointed forward to. It will never get any better than Christ.

God sends rain on both good and evil

Matt. 5. 45. that ye may be your heavenly Father, for he makes his sun rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust.

But all good is from God, and all evil is from Satan

Joh. AD 10 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy: I am come that they may have life and have it more abundantly.

James 1 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, from the Father of lights, with whom there is no change or shifting shadow.

This is of course difficult when God also gives "answered prayer" to the evil, not just the good ones!

This is a complex and very vast topic, when God is so incredibly good and generous. He causes his sun, blessings and all the best to all be part, even the wicked. But it's a great seriousness behind, everyone should make God accounts a day. When there is only one thing that matters, if we have accepted Jesus in our hearts and lives right. Everything else does not hold. Our wealth and our "answered prayer" is not necessarily an insurance policy in any way, even if the Bible encourages us to ask and expect answers to prayer.

Those who do iniquity, and even may have experienced signs, wonders and miracles, will perish

Such preachers as we see today with Todd Bentley, Jan Hanvold, Jan Aage Torp and many, many others live in lawlessness. But they experience something with God and signs, wonders and miracles, only to confusion and deception!

We have many examples in scripture that God has done and what has happened over natural things with and for people even if they have not lived the right, both in the Old and New Testament

I could have taken many, many examples. But for the sake of brevity I take only two, one in the GT and from the NT.

4 Numbers 20 7 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 8 Take the rod, and assemble the congregation, you and Aaron your brother, and I will speak to the rock right before their eyes, and she will give water from her: so, let the water flow out of the rock for them and give the congregation and their livestock to drink. 9 And Moses took the rod from before the LORD, as the LORD had commanded him. 10 And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Behold, I rebelled! Mon we can let the water flow out of you out of this rock? 11 Then Moses raised his hand and struck with his rod rock twice: and the water flowed there very out, so the congregation and their livestock drank. 12 But the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me and not sanctified me for Israel eyes, therefore you shall not bring this people into the land which I have given them.

God told Moses that he would speak, do not turn on the cape, which is a type of Christ. The first time God spoke to Moses, he should beat, but the second time he would speak. Jesus would only die once, not multiple times. But even though Moses was disobedient and did contrary to the Lord's command. So miracle happened, we read: "When there much water poured out, so the congregation and their livestock drank." Notice that Moses had to pay the consequences for disobedience, but the miracle happened. That it happens during or under, it does not automatically tell you that we have it right or wrong with God. Are we all in overstemmelse with God's word? That is what is critical, nothing else holds for the living God.

Ap. gj. 8. 8 And there was great joy in that city. 9 But there was a man named Simon, who had given himself a spell in town and put the people of Samaria in the greatest astonishment, for he himself to be great; 10 they gave him heed, both small and large , they said: He is the force called the Great. 11 And they gave heed to him for a long time he had bewitched them by their witchcraft.

Simon the Wizard could include fly and remain suspended in the air. This is from Wikipedia: The actual, known circumstances of Simon's life and work are few, and is characterized by the Church Fathers developed the story about him is the archetypal kjetterrolle. Epiphanius represents him in Panarion as the beginning and the root of many frills down the tree that was Gnosticism. According to the apocryphal Acts met Peter the Apostle Peter and Simon at the Roman Forum in Rome, where they competed in miracles and magic, Peter Simon won and killed as he fled. Myth substance on Simon lived a long time and contributed to the Faust myth (end of quote). I believe in the miracle, but to follow below, it is misleading. But Scripture speaks of the will obey its teachings, not vice versa.

In the end time will cause many false prophets and messiahs, even Satan should get fire to come down from heaven and many other supernatural things to happen!

Matt. 24. 24 For false Christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders, so that even the elect would be deceived, if that were possible.

From my commentaries Revelation 13 11 Then I saw another beast, there rose up out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but spoke like a dragon. Another animal is the False Prophet. It had two horns like a lamb but spoke like a dragon. We read about the false prophets in Matt. 7 and meets a striking resemblance. There are many examples of the false prophet pope in Rome, preachers within its charismatic churches, Mormon Priests and many others. 12 All the power of the first beast has, use the other animal commissioned by the former. It makes the earth and its people to worship the first beast - it had received its death-wound healed. Just as Jesus was dependent on the Holy Spirit is the Antichrist depending on the False Prophet to trick and deceive people. He imitates Jesus unto evil and its benefit. 13 It does great wonders, even lets fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of the people. The false prophet is doing exactly as sorcerers in Egypt in Moses time. Anything to get people away from belief in the living and true God and the Antichrist. 2. Tim. 3. 8 As Jannes and Jambres rebelled against Moses, put these men up against the truth. They have destroyed their judgment, and neither they nor their beliefs, goals. 9 But now they have no more progress, it should be clear to everyone how witless they are, so it went with Jannes and Jambres. 14 It deceives those who dwell on the earth, with the characters it receives power to do in the animal's favor. And it says to the people of the earth that they should make a statue in honor of the beast - that was wounded by the sword, but revived. We have several examples of both in the word of God and the story of a statue has been erected for the sole ruler and the one that requires the worship of himself. In Daniel chapter 3 and chapter 6 we read about this. And the story of the emperor of Rome the same. And other people who are worshiped are equally unbiblical and blasphemous. Mary-worship: Perhaps the best proof that Mary-worship evolved from the ancient worship of the pagan Mother Goddess, can be seen in the fact that in pagan religion was mother worshiped as much (or more) as her son! This gives us a unique clues to help us solve the mystery of Babylon today! True Christianity teaches that the Lord Jesus - and he alone - is the way, the truth and the life, that only He can forgive sin, that only he, of all earth's creatures have ever lived a life that was never stained by sin, and he is to be worshiped - never his mother. But Roman Catholicism - as it shows the impact paganism has had in its development - raises many ways her mother. One can travel around the world, whether it's in a very cathedral or in a village chapel, as the statue of Mary is an important position. When the "Rosary" the saying goes, the "Ave Maria" repeated nine times as often as "Our Father." Catholics teach that the point of praying to Mary is that she can bring the prayer to her son, Jesus. And since she is his mother, he will respond to the request of her. The conclusion is that Mary is more compassionate, understanding and gracious than her son Jesus. Surely this is contrary to Scripture! Yet this idea has often been repeated in Catholic writings. A prominent Roman Catholic author, Alphonsus Liguori, wrote extensively about how much more effective prayers are addressed to Mary instead of Christ. Liguori way, was canonized as a "saint" by Pope Gregory the 14th in 1839, and was declared to be a "doctor" in the Catholic Church by Pope Pius the Ninth. In a piece of his writings he described an imaginary scene in which a sinful man saw two ladders hanging down from the sky. Maria was on top of one, Jesus was on top of the other. When the culprit tried to climb up one ladder, he saw Christ's angry face and fell down defeated. But when he climbed up the ladder of Mary, he looked up and was warmly welcomed by Mary who brought him into the sky and introduced him to Christ! When everything was in perfect order. The story should show how much easier and more effective it is going to Christ through Mary. The same author says that the sinner who ventures to come directly to Christ may come with the fear of his wrath. But if he wants to pray to the Virgin, she will just need to "see" his son "the breasts that nursed him," and his anger will subside soon! 2 Such thinking is in direct conflict with a biblical example. "Blessed is the womb that has borne you," one woman said to Jesus, "and the breasts that you diet!" But Jesus replied, "Yes, blessed are those who hear the word of God and obey it!" (Luk.11 :27-28). Such ideas about breasts on the other side is not unknown to those who worshiped the pagan mother-goddess. Pictures of her have been unearthed which often shows her breasts extremely out of proportion to her body. In Diana's case, she is depicted with as much as a hundred breasts to symbolize her fertility! Further attempts to elevate Mary to a glorified position within Catholicism can be seen in the doctrine of the "Immaculate Conception". This doctrine was stated and defined by Pius the 9th in 1854 - that the Blessed Virgin Mary "in the first moment of her conception ... was preserved spared from all stain of original sin." 3 It turns out that this doctrine is only a continued effort to make Mary more like the goddess in paganism of the ancient myths were also believed the goddess that she had had a supernatural conception! The stories varied, but all told about supernatural events in connection with her entry into the world, that she was superior to ordinary mortals, she was divine. Little by little it became necessary to learn that Mary's entrance into this world also meant a supernatural element, that the teachings of Mary would not seem inferior to the mother-goddess! Is the doctrine that Mary was born without the stain of sinful tendency biblical? We will answer this with The Catholic Encyclopedia's own words: "No direct or categorical and accurate proof of the dogma can be carried forward from Scripture." It is instead pointed out that these ideas was a gradual development in Kirken.4 Right here it should be explained that this is a basic, perhaps the basic difference between the Roman Catholic attitude to Christianity and the general Protestant view. The Roman Catholic Church has, as it admits, long grown and developed around a number of traditions and ideas that are handed down from the Fathers of the Church over the centuries, and even beliefs transferred from paganism if they could "Christians", and also scripture. Concepts from all these sources have been mixed together and designed to eventually become dogma in various church meetings. On the other hand, there was the sight of the Protestant Reformation sought to revive that one should go to the Scriptures as a healthier basis for learning, with little or no emphasis on the ideas developed in later centuries. If one goes straight to the Scriptures, not only all evidence of the idea of ​​Mary's Immaculate Conception - there is even evidence to the contrary. While she was a chosen vessel of the Lord and was a pious and virtuous woman - a virgin - she was just as much a man as any other member of the Adams family. "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Rom.3: 23), where the only exception is Jesus Christ himself. Like all Maria needed a savior, and admitted this clearly when she said:" And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior "(Luk.1: 47). If Mary needed a savior, she was not even a savior. If she needed a savior, when she needed to be saved, forgiven and redeemed - as others. The fact is that our Lord's divinity was not dependent on his mother was a kind of exalted, divine person. Instead he was divine because he was the only begotten son of God. His divinity came from His heavenly Father. The idea that Mary was superior to other human beings was not Jesus' teachings. One time someone mentioned his mother and brothers. Jesus asked, "Who is my mother and who are my brothers?" And he put his hand over his disciples and said: "Behold my mother and my brothers, for he who does the will of my Father which is in heaven, he is my brother and sister and mother" (Matt.12: 46 - 50). Apparently so is every one that doeth the will of God clearly the same as Maria. Each day perform Catholics worldwide Ave Maria, rosary, prayer time, the Blessed Virgin Lita Nier and other beans. By multiplying the number of these prayers by the number of Catholics who recites them every day, someone has calculated that Mary would have had to listen to 46,296 prayers every second! Of course, none other than God himself do this. Yet Catholics believe that Mary hears all these prayers, and therefore they must necessarily elevate her to a divine level - whether it is biblical or not! To try to justify the way Mary has been elevated to has quoted some words of Gabriel to Mary: "Blessed are you among women" (Luk.1: 28). But the fact that Mary was "blessed among women" can not make her a divine person, for many centuries before it was a similar blessing pronounced upon Jael, of whom it was said: "Blessed above women be Jael, the Kenite Heber's wife!" (Judges 5:24). Before Pentecost, Mary was collected along with the other disciples waiting for the promise of the Holy Spirit. We read that the apostles "all kept endrektig by prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers" (Apg.1: 14). Typical of Catholic ideas of Mary, try this illustration (taken from "The Official Baltimore Catechism5) to give Maria a central position. But as anyone who studies the Bible knows, the disciples were not concerned with Maria on this occasion. They were concerned with their resurrected and oppfarne CHRIST, he would pour out the Holy Ghost upon them. We also notice in the drawing of the Holy Spirit (as a dove) is visible over her! Yet it according to Scripture only one Spirit came down upon the the form of a dove, Jesus himself, and not his mother, on the other hand, the pagan virgin goddess named Juno is often represented with a dove on his head, as Astarte, Isis and Sybil was! 6 Further attempts to glorify Mary can be seen in the Roman Catholic doctrine of the perpetual virginity. This is the teaching that Mary remained a virgin throughout her life. But as "The Encyclopedia Britannica" explains, it was not the doctrine of Mary's perpetual virginity preached before about three hundred years after Christ's ascension. It was not until the Council of Chalcedon in the year 451 that this mythic quality won official recognition from Roma.7 According to scripture, Jesus' birth was the result of a supernatural conception (Matt.1: 23), without an earthly father. But after Jesus was born, Mary gave birth to second child - the natural offspring of her marriage to Joseph, her husband. Jesus was Mary's' "first-born" son (Matt.1: 25 KJV). It does not mean that he was her only child. The fact that Jesus was her firstborn child could indeed mean that she later got a second-born child, maybe a third-born children, etc. That was the case seems obvious, for the names of the four brothers are mentioned: James, Joses, Simon and Judas (Matt.13: 55). Sisters are also mentioned. The people of Nazareth said, "and are not all his sisters with us?" (Verse 56). The word "sisters" are in the majority, obviously, so we know that Jesus had at least two sisters, and probably more, for this verse speaks of "all" his sisters. Generally, if we refer to only two people, we would say "both", not "all". The implied meaning is that there are at least three sisters being referred to. If we consider three sisters and four brothers, Jesus' half brothers and half sisters, this would make Mary the mother of eight children. Scripture says: "Joseph ... did not keep her until she gave birth to a son, the first-born, and called his name JESUS" (Matt.1: 25). Joseph "did not keep to her" until after Jesus was born, but after it came Mary and Joseph together as husband and wife and they had children. The idea that Joseph kept Mary a virgin all her life, is clearly unbiblical. During the time of apostasy, for identifying Maria closer with mother-goddess, learned that some of Mary's body never saw decay, that she physically ascended to heaven and now is "queen of heaven". It was not until this century (20th century) that the doctrine of Mary's "Ascension" was officially proclaimed as a doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church. It was in 1951 that Pope Pius the 12th proclaimed that Mary's body not decay, but was taken up to heaven. St.Bernards word sums up the Roman - Catholic attitude: "On the third day after her death, when the apostles were gathered around her tomb, they found it empty. Holy body had been carried up to the heavenly Paradise ... the grave had no power over one who was undefiled ... But it was not enough that Mary would be received into heaven. She should not be an ordinary citizen ... she had a dignity that surpassed even the highest arch-angelic dignity. Maria would be crowned the sky Queen of the Eternal Father. She should get a throne by his son's right hand ... Now - day by day, hour by hour she prays for us, obtain mercy for us, protect us from danger, monitors us to temptation, pouring blessings down on us. " All these ideas of Mary Feast of the Assumption is related to the belief that she physically ascended to heaven. But the Bible says absolutely nothing about the Feast of the Assumption. Rather, says Joh.3: 13: "No man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son, who is in heaven" - Jesus Christ himself. HE is the one who is at the right hand of God, HE is the one who is our mediator, HE is the one who pours out blessings upon us - not his mother! Closely related to the idea of ​​praying to Mary is a tool called the Rosary. It consists of a chain of fifteen sets of pellets, each set is marked with a large bullet. The ends of this chain is joined by a medallion which bears the imprint of Maria. From this hangs a short chain with a crucifix at the end. The beads on the rosary is to count prayers - prayers that are repeated over and over again. Although this tool is in widespread use within the Roman Catholic Church, it is clearly not of Christian origin. It has been known for many countries. "The Catholic Encyclopedia" says: "In almost all countries, we encounter something like bean-counters or rosary beads." It goes on to cite a number of examples, including a sculpture of ancient Nineveh mentioned by Layard, two winged women praying in front of a sacred tree, and each of them holding a rosary. For centuries among Mohammedans has a bullet-string consisting of 33, 66 or 99 beads, was used to count the Messenger name. Marco Polo, in the thirteenth century, was surprised to discover that the King of Malabar used a rosary of precious stones to count prayers. St. Francis Xavier and his companions were also surprised to see that rosaries were everywhere known of Japan buddhister.9 Among the Phoenicians were a circle of beads resembling a rosary used in the worship of Astarte, the mother goddess, about 800 years f.Kr.10 This rosary can be seen on some early Phoenician coins. Brahman'ene has from early times used rosaries with tens and hundreds of bullets. Those who worship Vishnu and his children rosaries with 108 bullets. A similar rosary is used by millions of Buddhists in India and Tibet. Shiva-worshiper uses a rosary which he repeats, if possible, all the 1008 names of their god på.11 Bullets for counting beans were known in the Asian Greece. It was intended, according to Hislop, the necklace seen on the statue of Diana. He also points out that in Rome were some of the necklaces that women bar, used to count or remember prayers. They were called monile, which means "reminding" .12 The most repeated prayer and the main prayer of the Rosary is "Ave Maria" as follows: "Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, God Mother, pray for us sinners, now and in times of death, Amen. " "The Catholic Encyclopedia" says: "There is little or no trace of the Hail Mary as an accredited edifying formulation until around the year 1050." 13 The complete Rosary involves repeating the Hail Mary 53 times, Father six times, five mysteries, five meditations on the mysteries, 5 Glory be and the Apostles' Creed. Notice that the prayer to Mary, Ave Maria, is repeated nine times as often as Father! Is a prayer that is invented by people and directed to Mary nine times as important or effective as the prayer Jesus taught us, addressed to God? Those who worshiped the goddess Diana (Artemis) reiterated a religious phrase over and over again - "... and cried for about two hours: Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!" (Apg.19: 34). Jesus spoke of repeated prayer as a practice that belonged to the Gentiles. "And when you pray," said he, "so do not use unyt ¬ term repetitions, as the heathen do. For they think they will be heard because of their many words. Yet not like them. For your Father knows what you need before you ask Him. (Matthew 6:7-13) In this text, Jesus told his followers openly that they should pray a little prayer over and over again. It is significant to note that it was right after he had given this warning, actually in the next verse, he said: "Thus shall you pray: Our Father, Who art in heaven ..." and gave the disciples what we call "Our Father." Jesus gave this prayer as opposed to the pagan form of prayer. Yet Roman Catholics taught to pray this prayer over and over again. If this prayer should not be repeated again and again, how much less then a small man made prayer to Mary! It seems to us that learning by rote prayers to repeat them again and again, could easily come to be more of a "memory test" than a spontaneous expression of heartfelt prayer. 15 It had the power to revive the image of the beast, so it could even speak, and to let kill all who do not worship the image of. Image of the beast should be the Antichrist himself makes use of all possible computer technology and all other modern techniques to maintain control over the people while getting them to worship him. Those who will not worship him being killed as we read in Daniel 6 13 Then they went to the king and said, "O king, have not you sent decree that anyone in thirty days praying to anyone other than you, O king, be it a god or a human being, he will be thrown into the lions' den ? "the King replied:" Yes, it is fixed by the Medes and Persians irrevocable law. "14 Then they said to the king," Daniel, one of the exiles from Judah, does not care about you or the injunction you have sent write about. Three times a day he prays his prayer. " 15 When the king heard this, he was displeased and thought about how he could save Daniel. Until sunset, he did what he could to find a way to save him. 16 Then these men rushing to the king and said to him: "King, remember it is the law of the Medes and Persians that no decree which the king has given and no decision he has made, can be done again." 17 Then commanded king, that they should bring Daniel and cast him into the den of lions. The king said to Daniel, "May your God, whom you serve continually, deliver you!" 18 They took a stone and put it over the opening of the cave. The king sealed it with his own, and his lords seal, so there could be no alteration of Daniel (state final).

John the Baptist did not under but he was the greatest prophet in the Old Testament when he pointed to Jesus, nothing is bigger and more important than that

Matt 11:11 Verily I say unto you, greater than John the Baptist is risen up among those born of women, but the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

Imagine, he was "at least" of all appreciated Jesus 'highest'. We all have something to learn, and it tells us once again. Are our lives and our doctrine in overstemmelse with God's word? This is what we all will be held accountable to within its God.

Final Comment: I believe in, but apart from the will of God, this is a trap to fall. But live and we walk right with God is a great, great blessing. And God will vindicate our lives at all levels, not least for him. Having only touched some extremes of this very complex subject. The prophet Balaam as I've written about experiencing all this, yet he lost when he walked as he preached! He was killed by Israel with the sword. The sword is a picture of God's word. There are a number of biblical men and women who very likely were not saved because they would not let him lead and to follow God's word, eg. Balaam, King Saul, an apostle of Jesus Judas, Cain and 2 Tim. 4. 10a For Demas left me, because he got love for this present world, and went to Thessalonica. It is the word of God who will judge us on the last day. Remember that, and align your life after that, then you're on the road that leads to eternity. It is very serious to live as a Christian, one must take his life within its God and his word and try if you are in the faith as the Word says. Take this into you, that I have done and I recommend everyone to do the same!

Nr. 381:

How experienced answers to prayer, there are methods and special "tricks" or, God unconditionally?

Mark 11 22 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Have faith in God! 23 Verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea! and shall not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it shall befall. 24 Therefore I say unto you, All that I pray for and desire, believe that ye receive them, and it shall happen to you.

It pays to pray, we sing a song, but to pray to God and believe in your heart, then it happens during

The most important and going to pray is to believe in God and his son Jesus Christ

Joh. AD 14 1. Let your heart be troubled not! Believe in God, believe also in me!

1) Faith in God and faith in Jesus is the world's wealth and opportunity. Belief in the one true God, the Father and His Son Jesus Christ is of greater importance and richness than anything else in this world, God be praised! We talk about prayer and faith here, but the premise of all is to believe, but believe right and good. There are many who believe, but they do wrong, and then think they are not good either. Israel was accused not to believe but to believe wrong, and then everything else was also wrong.

Rom. 10. 2 For I give them the witness that they have a zeal for God, but not with discernment.

It is not always "enough" to pray and to be diligent, we must be the right way teaches the word of God. The starting point then is to believe in God the Father and His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. And believe that God the Father is the only true God, and no other. Then we have a legal basis and faith in God is also the main reason truth back Christian faith and doctrine. And it belongs in the first reasons the word of God according to Hebrews.

Hebrews 6 1. Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and stride forward towards perfection, so we are not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and faith in God.

Children lesson is to have faith in God

This to believe in the one true God and his son are both elementary teachings and that brings us into eternal life, and everything else, Hallelujah!

Joh. AD 17 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, whom thou hast sent, Jesus Christ.

Add cross-legged you who believe that the Father is the only true God and believe that the Father sent him to make atonement for our sins was His beloved Son Jesus Christ. Relax, enjoy life and price your great God answered prayer and everything else along the way. You are seats in heaven with his beloved Son.

Efes. 2. 6 and raised us with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

We are privileged as no other, and all he wants to provide us with His Beloved Son, then we are all his children. Even Jesus prayed to his God and Father

Rom. 8. 17 And if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not also give us all things with him? 39 neither ridge nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The very, very important is to be saved and to believe in the one true God and His Son Jesus Christ, "arranges" everything else out

We know the commercials depicting one from Østfold and Fredrikstad, saying: "It will be all right." Yes, everything works out for those who believe in God and His Son Jesus Christ. Let me remind us again what Jesus said, put these words and this Bible verse to memory:

Joh. AD 14 1. Let your heart be troubled not! Believe in God, believe also in me!

Here some different translations of this word: Svenska (1917) "Edra hjärtan care icke oroliga. Throne of God tron ​​ock on me. Danish (1917/1931) "Let your heart forfærdes not! Belief in God, and believe in me!

Translated from faith in God: eis. It believes that to come to a place or city. That is exactly what we find in the Bible, that to believe is to be believed. This is from my commentaries Ephesians 3 12 In whom we have boldness and faith in Him we can come to God with confidence. What is it that makes us lose our courage to come to God and ask him anything? In 1 John 3:21 it said that if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. The fact that you think that you are not worthy to receive anything from God because of all the sins and wrong things you have done, do you not have the expectation that your prayers are answered. One of the biggest reasons you often can not get answers to prayer is not because of your sin or lack of holiness, but because you are not quite sure whether you deserve it. Let me just add that the devil likes to use sin to condemn us, then I urge not to sin. You may be a Christian who knows that you have been there through faith and not by your fine work, but because you may feel that God is not fully satisfied with you, you are not sure whether he will actually answer your prayers. Or you feel you do not have enough faith. There are emotions that often is the obstacle to answered prayer is not faith. For faith is a choice, but often comes feelings in the way, and it's easy and choose emotions rather than to believe the truth. Our feelings can often tell us something that is not true. You may feel that you have not you deserve something, you may feel that because you have made so many mistakes that God does not hear you. You may feel that you do not have enough faith, and that God is pleased with you. I may at times feel that God is not pleased with me, but that's not the truth. God is pleased with me and you because you have chosen to believe him. Choose not to go by what you feel. You can have confidence toward God even though you should not feel like it, for your boldness before God does not depend on what you have done or will do, but only on God's gift called grace. You can boldly accept this gift, even if you do not feel you deserve it.

Efes 1 13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation - in whom also, after that ye were come to the faith, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise,

Notice the wording, we have believed. It's something we're going to, not as we strive to make or earn, Hallelujah. I am a Danish citizen, but I have not made me earn. I was born there and has always been Dansk although we moved to Norway when I was 5 years old. But my sister has the same parents as me but is Norwegian when she was born in Norway. What is the difference? Birth, where you are born spiritually? That is what is crucial. The world of children is often much better than us believers, but it does nothing if they are not born again. The new birth is essential, and that we experience by faith in God and His Beloved Son.

Psalm 87 1. Of Korah children: a hymn, a song. / The place he has established in the holy mountain, 2 Zion gates love the Lord above all Jacob's dwellings. 3 Lovely things are said of thee, O city of God. Sela. 4 I mention Rahab and Babylon among them that know me: behold Philistine and tyrieren with Ethiopian: This is born there. / 5 And on Zion it shall be said: Every one is born there. And He, the Most High, do it fast. 6 The Lord shall count when people are they not written, and say: This is born there. Sela. 7 And the singing and dancing, to say: all my springs are in thee.

Why sing and dance? They are born where the source is, hallelujah! It does not have to be born in the Sahara desert and have all kinds of money, you will be constantly thirsty forever. But being born and living in Norway, particularly on the west coast as it rains throughout the year and the water is more than enough. What is the difference? Wherever are born and live. The secret of the Christian life is to be born and see the wealth that goes with it. Therefore, we need enlightened eyes that Paul asks the church to get to see the wealth they already had in Christ.

This is from my commentaries Ephesians 1 17 I pray that our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, let you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you learn to know God. This is where it begins. To be saved is to learn about God and Jesus to know. Jesus himself says in John 17.3: And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ. This verb "to know" in the biblical language expresses much more than acquaintances. It expresses the deepest community, gained by personal experience. You can have all the world's knowledge about a person, but you do not know him before he met and been with him over time. Same verb "to know" is incidentally about the most intimate union of man and woman. It is eg. verbatim in Gen. 1 4.25: Adam knew his wife and she bore him his son Seth. Maybe that's why the church is called the Bride of Christ. To be a Christian is something much more than having knowledge about God or believe that he is. It also believes the evil spirits: Jak 2.19 You believe that God is one? It makes you right in. Even the demons believe that - and shudder! No, that saving faith is to get a personal relationship with God in Jesus Christ. It is to be in Him, as Paul repeatedly says both here in Ephesians and elsewhere. To get into this community, we need the Spirit's revelation. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 2.14: The man is, in itself, does not accept the things of the Spirit of God. For him it is foolishness, and he can not understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. But it is possible to believe. It happens when the Spirit reveals God's wisdom for us. And the wisdom of God is the Word of the Cross: We preach Christ crucified. For Jews, this is offensive and to Gentiles foolishness, 24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power and wisdom of God. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 1.23 to 24. The word of the cross is also God's love revelation. John says, 1 John 4.9 to 10 And God's love was revealed among us when he sent his only begotten Son into the world so that we might have life through him. 10 Love is not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. This love is never done with knowing. The Christian life is a continual growth in the knowledge of Christ and love for him. This awareness grows primarily by being in His word. And here we still need spiritual revelation and enlightenment. In Psalm 119.18 asking David: Open my eyes, that I may see wonderful things in your law. And the more we learn to know Jesus, the more, more we desire to be better acquainted with him. I find it highly to read in File 3.7-9: But before that were gain to me, I see now that a loss because of Christ. 8 Yes, I count everything as loss because of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, is so much more valuable. For his sake I have lost everything, and I see it as scrap that I may gain Christ 9 and be with him. This Paul writes about. 61 years He can look back on nearly 30 years as a Christian. What had he seen and experienced with Jesus! Yet his greatest desire to know Christ and be found in Him. Against it pales everything else. The more we understand of God's love, the more we learn of it, the more we surrender to it - with everything we are and have. And the more we surrender to God, the freer we are, for that is what we are called to. And the more we surrender, the more we are transformed to look like Jesus, the more we want to do His will. It is possible to be an obedient Christian without being given over to God's love. And it's unfortunately much strenuous obedience among Christians. One does what God wants of duty. But God's word says that what is done in love, it has no value for him. 1 Corinthians 13.3 If I give all I possess to the bread of the poor, even if I give myself to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. But it is not possible to be given over to God but also to obey Him. When jumping out of obedience surrender. When is not Christian life a set rules and regulations: "You should and you should not," no, then it becomes, "I will and I will not." If someone said to me: "You should not have someone on the side of Berit", then there would be a heavy obligation to comply with the request. I have experienced her love and I have given myself to her. I do not want anyone else. - In the same way with God: "You shall have no other gods before me," he says. But it will not I? So much have I learned of his love that I will not follow anyone but him! 18 May he eyes of your heart light, that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, We have the hope of a glorious heritage. Peter begins his 1.brev to praise God for this hope: 1 Pet 1.3 to 5 Praise be to God, our Lord Jesus Christ, Father, who in his great mercy we have been born anew to a living hope through Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead! 4 We will have a legacy that will never perish, and not stain or fade. It is hidden in heaven for you 5 who by God's power is preserved by faith, then you shall attain to salvation: he is all ready to be revealed at the end of time. We have a living hope. This means that it is not empty and vacuous hope. It is not a vague, uncertain desire á la student who hopes he stands for exams, or when we say: "I hope that it will be good weather tomorrow." - No, Jesus guarantees hoped by his resurrection from the dead! As he was, so shall we who think one day arise. Jesus has gone ahead to prepare us a place, he says. And one day he will come back and take us home. Then we have a part in that legacy is hidden in heaven for us. We hope blows all our human notions. There are simply too large to comprehend with our human senses. That is why Paul pray that the Holy Spirit must give our hearts spot light so we understand. This is a bit strange expression, but the heart of biblical language is not only pump blood, but stands for the internal organ that allows us to communicate with God. We believe with our hearts, we understand with the heart, the Bible says. Another word for heart is the human spirit. Basically this means dead, but by the Spirit of God makes the living, so we can intervene faith and understand more of the glory that awaits. Let me just take a couple of passages that say something about our glorious heritage: 1 John 3.2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it doth not yet been revealed what we shall be. We know that when He appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see him as he is. Imagine, we shall see him as he is ... I know what it feel it in the body of tension and expectation: He whom I have known, learned to love, whom I have served, believed in and worshiped without looking - his Beauty shall I see clearly! Face to face! For one day it will be! Then it is fulfilled that which was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: With my own eyes I shall behold the King in His beauty. 33.17. But it will not be the same experience as when we packed up all the presents on Christmas Eve, and it is not more to enjoy. Have you noticed that the hope is to consist of eternity? 1Cor 13.13 So abide, these three: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. There is always something to hope for. Eternal life will be a constant surprise. It never gets dull or boring to behold the glory of God. And let us also bring the vision John saw on Patmos: Revelation 21.1-5 I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared and adorned as a bride for her husband. 3 From the throne I heard a loud voice saying: "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them. 4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain. For the former things are passed away. " 5 He who sits on the throne, said to me: "Behold, I make all things new." When hope is alive, the faith boldly and love burning! The third Paul asks is 3. That they need to understand the very power of God is Ephesians 1.18 to 19 May he eyes of your heart light, so you understand - how very His power is in us who believe. That's what we need to live here in the time between the call to salvation and hope that awaits. The Christian life is a journey toward a goal. We are not vagrants who wander aimlessly through life coaching. We are not tourists every night coming back to the place we went out from. No, we are pilgrims every day to get closer to the target. But the obstacles are many temptations and dangers lurk. We have a powerful opponent who has only one program: Steal, kill and destroy. Then it is easy to look up to the problems and discouraged. So Paul asks that we must understand how very His power is that is in us who believe. And then he describes this power to demonstrate three facts that are: First, God showed his mighty power by: A. Tourism Jesus from the dead. Jesus' resurrection puts Christianity in a unique position. It is almost proof that our beliefs are true. Yes, Paul says to the philosophically trained on Aeropagos: Acts 17.31 For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice. This will be done by the man he has chosen to do so, after he has furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the døde.NB 88 Jesus' resurrection was more than a dead fungi revival. Lazarus was restored to life after being dead for four days, but he had to die again. Jesus' resurrection was a victory over death. It was God's mighty power that broke the power of death. Therefore, Paul's triumph in 1 Corinthians 15.55 Death, where is thy sting? Death, where is thy victory? 1 Corinthians 15.57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! So Jesus arose, we believe that one day arise. So really is God's power in us who believe. God also proved his immense power by b Put Jesus at His right hand in heaven. It is the highest place of honor, the seat of the highest authority. During Jesus' earthly life, he was like God in essence, now he is also in effect. Thus he also got name above all names: the name of the Lord, namely, in Greek Kyrios, the Hebrew Yahweh, that is God's own name. Paul probably revisit an old hymn or confession in File 2.9-11: Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name above every name, 10 that every knee shall bow in the name of Jesus, in heaven and on earth and under the earth , 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to God's glory! Literally it says, confess the Lord Jesus Christ. Now Jesus carries God's omnipotence over all principalities and powers. Everything he put under his feet, V22. He is also with us, as he promised: Behold, I am with you alway, even unto the end. Matt 28.20. What have we to fear? 19 and where his power really is with us who believe. With this great power and strength I must say that the term fullness of him who fills all in all, have been the subject of many interpretations. I will not weary you with them. I think the verse must be understood from the parallel in Colossians 2.9 to 10 In him the whole fullness deity bodily present, 10 and in Christ, who is the head of all rule and authority, have you also been part of this body. All that Jesus is and he has given to the church by the Holy Spirit. We are filled with him. Therefore, the same power that God revealed by Jesus raise from the dead, available with us who believe! Do we believe this? Why do we complain when so often their own impotence? It is interesting at all. God is able to let their power work through our weakness, yes, when does the strongest! This is what Paul testifies in 2 Cor 12.9. He struggled with a weakness, a thorn in the flesh, and asked to be let go. But God said, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness." - And then comes the strong words: therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. II. How do we trigger this power between us? Yes, this is all well and good, but to be honest, we see not so much to this mighty force. Will it be just fine words from a preacher who is paid to say that, or is it experienced reality in our own lives and in our congregation? I think we have a lot of good with God, but he must be allowed to escape to in our lives. And what does he do when we praise, thank, pray as Paul does in this passage - and when we obey Him. When we pray that God's word, then we can be certain that we pray in accordance with God's will, and when our prayers are fulfilled. Praise and prayer are inextricably linked. When we praise and thank God, either with our words or our song, either with the good old songs or new choirs, so direct our gaze toward God and open ourselves to all that He has given us in Christ. Thanksgiving Prayer focuses on who we pray to. It lifts our eyes up from the problems that can make us despondent, to Solver, and then we cheer. b And when we pray, we go off our bare hands and accept what he wants to give us. In prayerful conversation with God the Holy Spirit to show us what he wants us to do. c And so we see that Paul gives thanks to God for the church he is writing to. Now there was good reason for it, for he had heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, v.16 20 he traveled up Christ from the dead and set him at his right hand in heaven, You carry oppstandelskraft Christ in you. So have you share in his resurrection. When Jesus rose from the dead, so we stood up with him, because we are in him. How blessed it is to be in Jesus. Hugo Odeberg say about our resurrection that it means "the whole human personality restoration of full stature, whereby nothing of what is man's own, is lacking in it." In our profession, we say that we believe in the resurrection of the body. We will occur with our whole person, with our personality touches. When Jesus was human, he is human forever. In the same way you should be human in eternity. 1 Cor 15,42.43 it speaks about the resurrection: "It is sown in corruption, it arises in glory. It is sown in dishonor, it arises in glory. It is sown in weakness, it occurs in power." 1 Corinthians 15.42-43. "Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity. And shall cast them into the furnace of fire. Place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let him hear! " Matt from 13.41 to 43. But we must also be spiritual people filled out when we will be like Jesus and the angels. My commentaries Markus 12 25 For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. When we go into the eternal state and get a new body of Jesus. Will we have children that we get here. The Bible speaks much about our eternal state, but some words have we. One of the very best of the apostle Peter. 2. Pet.3. 13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. So we conclude by saying that "Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city." Rev. 22.14. 21 over all principalities, above all might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world but also in the future. Matthew 28 from verse 18: "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying: Meg is given all power in heaven and on earth! Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the end! " Power = authority Meg is given all power in heaven and on earth! What does it mean? We encounter the phrase "all power" twice in the Bible: 1 Corinthians 15.24: Then cometh the end, when he surrenders the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all rule and all authority and power. Colossians 2.10: And in him you have been filled, who is the head of every power and authority. What do you understand by the word power? Think a little bit about, what other words do you think could be changed here without changing the meaning? We have a proverb that says, "There is power that reigns" With this expression we mean that raw power or psychic power is what ultimately determines what happens. It comes in the schoolyard, in many homes and in world politics. Now it is clear that a word in one language is never completely identical to a word in another language. Thus we see that a word can be translated several different in a different language depending on the context in which it is used. So it is with the Bible translations, and we will take a closer look at. For if we are to understand the meaning of the words in the Bible, we must look at how the Bible uses the words. The Greek word translated as power in the word of Jesus is the theme is "exusia." It translates a little differently, and I think we should look at some verses that use this word, but the translation is a little different. Let's start with some verses in Colossians: For in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities (exusia). All things were created through him and for him. Colossians 1.16 And in him you have been filled, who is the head of every power and authority. (Exusia) Kol 2.10 There are various powers and authorities in both the visible and the invisible world. But of them all, Jesus who created them and who is their head, we read here. In prophecy we read that Jesus was going to get this power / authority, as in Daniel 7.14: And there was given him dominion, (exusia) glory and kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages, should serve him. His dominion (exusia) is an everlasting dominion (exusia) which shall not pass away, and His kingdom is a kingdom that will never perish. It was a Roman officer who understood this to be granted authority, and stated in connection with his meeting with Jesus: For I myself am a man under authority (exusia), and I have soldiers under me. And I say to one of them: Go! and he goes, and to another, Come! and he comes, and to my servant, 'Do this! he does it. Mt 8.9 Jesus has all power, all authority. It's not something he has robbed, or anything in any unlawful manner has acquired. No, he's been given all authority in heaven and on earth as we have read. But Jesus also is under a higher authority, namely, the Father himself. And he has not gotten his powers for his own part, authority and authority always assigned to an object: as thou hast given him power (exusia) over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to all whom you have given him. John 17.2 Therefore hear the word of Jesus is again given all power so closely associated with the Great Commission command to baptize, or as we call it. It is he who is appointed by the highest authority who calls his people to action. Many doubted that he really has this authority to forgive sins. We remember how it was when some men tore up the roof to lower their paralyzed friend down to Jesus. Then he forgave the paralytic his sins. The scribes thought within himself that this was blasphemy, for no one but God had authority to forgive sin. But when Jesus responded to their thoughts by saying: But that ye may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins Mrk 2.10 And then he healed the lame man right before their eyes as proof that he had the authority both to forgive sin and heal the sick. Jesus has already done the main job so we can read it in Colossians: He disarmed the rulers and authorities (exusia) and asked them openly, when he showed up, triumphing over them in it. Colossians 2.15 Wherefore the fact that we have the authority / right to become children of God in John 1.12. Jesus calls his friends to a victorious battle where the outcome is already known. But it can ask for faithfulness and obedience to him who is the head and the very highest authority. He who calls you is the same that gave the disciples authority both to: Have power (exusia) to heal diseases and cast out demons: Mrk 3.15 We can in fact benefit from learning of the Pharisees and the scribes in their encounter with Jesus. They asked him by what authority he healed and forgave sins. (Note 11.33) where he had been authorized to do it from. They were absolutely right in that there were only two options: either it was with the power and authority of God, also was under the authority of Satan that he did this. The sad thing was that they were not willing to take the consequences of what they must have realized on the basis of their knowledge of the Bible: that Jesus had to have his authority from God himself. There are many different powers and authorities of the Human sandbox. But in the real world there are mentioned two power spheres that reflect that there are two kingdoms. And we're not talking about nations or world powers in the usual sense, but in the darkness and the kingdom of light: He has delivered us from the power of darkness (exusia) and translated us into the kingdom of his beloved Son. Colossians 1.13 It is known to us, but perhaps not so well known is that Satan also has power of attorney. Now he mostly tried to rob them of power and authority as the great liar and phoney he is. But it is strange that, when people bow to him, and gives him the power and authority even though he should not have it! These have one mind, and his power, and his power and the beast. Rev. 17.13 Therefore Satan when he tempts Jesus say: To you will I give power over all of this, and their glory. For me it has been given, and I give it to whomever I want. Lk 4.6 Otherwise we remember from the Old Testament that God allowed Satan to afflict Job, he was given power and authority. When Jesus was taken prisoner and was crucified, there was a conversation between him and Pilate. Pilate reminds Jesus that he has the power to crucify him or set him free. But Jesus answered: You would have no power over me if it were not given you from above. Jn 19.11 Although Pilate human thinking was right, as he demonstrated how we think in our human realm. We have our power structures, but forget that there is a higher power outside of ourselves that has the final say. So a Saul travel around with authority from the chief priests to throw Christians in jail, but found that he was standing over the priests would use him for something else. Thus he writes in his letter to the Romans about the potter who is lord (exusia) over the camp. And we remember the words of the prophet Jeremiah, telling us about the Lord who has the authority to reprogram us so he will. Just because sin is to go beyond their jurisdiction, to disobey God and His instructions, are also power and strength along with power and authority. Cards can be said that Jesus has exusia, authority and therefore power and strength that allows him to carry out what he says. When he drives out demons he does with "exusia" and "dynamis", with the authority and power (Luke 4.36). The first word we've already talked about, the other we know from the word dynamite. But this is more powerful issues, dynamite has no power to do anything about Satan and his servants. When we read in the Gospels about the miracles Jesus did, then it dynamis works. And this power, dynamis, is because God himself is dynamis, and Jesus will sit at the right hand. Mtt 26.64 Therefore, Jesus not only authority but also with power from on high. The same "exusia" and "dynamis" gave to his disciples: He called the twelve together and gave them power (dynamis) and authority (eksusia) over all devils, and to cure diseases. Lk 9.1 It does not mean that we always can take authority over diseases as some claim. For Jesus had authority to heal the sick in their own name. We must do it in his name by asking him to do it. We can not command him who is above us! We have not authorized. But we read of the first Christian martyr, Stephen, that he was full of grace and power, dynamis. And we read in Acts that the disciples did miracles. Paul writes more about this in 1 Corinthians 12.29 where he emphasizes that this is fitting to grace service where God equips some way, and other such. God's "dynamis" hear words with even today. What kind of power and power is what Jesus has received? Is it the power that U.S. shows in the Persian Gulf or youth gangs with knives or other weapons? No, this here is a matter considerably stronger cases than such pusleri. But do we understand it, we must learn to think differently. We must learn to look at the universe in a different way than the radio, TV and newspapers do. It's about as Elisa and server as an army coming to take Elisa to catch and where his servant was terrified and desperate. But God opened the eyes of the boy so he could see, and what he saw: the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. But how did God looked over this power? Did it come to fighting there on the mountain? Yes, it did, but in a completely different way: God struck them with blindness so that they do not recognize him. Then he led them to Samaria where they had their eyes opened when they were surrounded by the Israeli army. They escaped with humiliation, and God defended his prophet. God's power / power manifests itself in a different way than the human. We think based on what we see and experience every day. Maybe it can help in understanding to compare the difference between animals and humans. The animals understand nothing of armed force, and therefore has nothing to set up the guns. They find that there is a stronger power, but they do not understand what it means. Something similar is in the relationship between humans and the spiritual world. Here we encounter forces we can not control with. But there are also forces at work in a completely different way than we are used to. We see this clearly through biblical history as in the example of Elisha. But we read through the Bible we see the way that it is: We remember that the Israelites used when Moses held his arms raised (in prayer) but lost when the arms sank down. (2.Mos 17.10 to 11) Gideon won with so few men that it could not be any doubt that it was a completely different force that gave victory. Siege of Samaria where the entire enemy army fled from all over the neck and head, and the enemy army around Jerusalem that quickly went home. Calvary is probably the strongest, where God chooses suffering and death to save us! It is so clear that here is completely different than the weapons of the people put their trust. And we are called to follow also in this. and the overwhelming greatness of his power (dynamis) is for us who believe, by the working of his mighty power. It was that he wrought in Christ when he raised him from the dead and set him at his right hand in heaven, over all power and authority (exusia), above all might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world but also in the future. Ephesians 1.19-21 Then cometh the end, when he surrenders the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all power and authority (exusia) and overwhelm. (Dynamis) 1 Corinthians 15.24 The power of God is stronger than man's power, and of an entirely different character. Therefore, it is dangerous when we're flesh our arm, and trust in human power and strength. When we liters of weakness, while we intend to weakness, frailty, in reality strength. Paul writes openly that when he is weak he is strong, "dynamis". And now we come into the middle of the Sunday school work we stand up in, and all other Christian work for that matter.

Back to square one: How experienced answers to prayer, there are methodologies and special "tricks" or, God unconditionally?

Yes! The most important and biggest "trick" and method is to be a child of God and faith in God and His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ. To be saved, and not exert themselves or being active!

Final Comment:

1 Genesis 18 1. And the Lord appeared unto him in the plains oak-grove, and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day. 1 Genesis 13 2 And Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver and gold.

As a final comment here, I want to address some thoughts about Abraham - Father of the faithful.

We can learn a lot by studying Abraham and all of God's men and women in the Bible. It's about Abraham that he was exceedingly rich but that he relaxed and took it easy! He sat quietly in the middle of the day, and he was exceedingly rich. How can this be? Because God blessed him because he believed God.

Proverbs 10 22 It is the blessing of the Lord makes rich, and private labor does not add anything to.

The secret here we find that Abraham believed God, but he also believed God in the right way. This again resulted in his calling the faithful Father. The lesson here has taught us that the starting point must be right, then it helps not to be too hasty nor for very slow, but faith in God and act on it he tells us through his own words and by His Spirit!

Nr. 380: Remarriage, any problem? No, it is sin and adultery teach God's word! Now also former Bishop Odd Bondevik married a divorcee in his old age according Gjendem, when he turns himself into the ranks of so many others! Part 5

Nr. 380:

Remarriage, any problem? No, it is sin and adultery teach God's word! Now also former Bishop Odd Bondevik married a divorcee in his old age according Gjendem, when he turns himself into the ranks of so many others! Part 5

Remarriage is and will remain open up to dark and demonic spiritual powers in the church. Having collected a closing article of debate about this on the net in the day \ magazine and Value debate. Much wisdom and the word of God from some, read and study. Photo of Ludvik Karlsen which unfortunately is a man who has done a lot damage here in Christian Norway with a terrible and totally unbiblical views on divorce and remarriage where everything is permitted only it can "help" than to live as a Christian.

Øyvind Kleiveland: When I read the post editor in chief Simonnes, I do me some thoughts. He mentions that the church adds to strong ties of human life, something I can agree in. At least in earlier times. My thoughts on that is that today can not be said enough to hold water. I think the number of churches and religious communities that talk about the bible says is the case with two people who marry again, is probably very few. It is rather like the churches in Norway today are not talking about, nor have an opinion on what happens between two people. Should it be like that? The Bible speaks of carnal works and fruit of the Spirit in Galatians chapter five. The first four acts involving sexual drives that do not have God's blessing. And as the antithesis, the Bible lists the fruit of the Spirit, including sexual purity, described as abstinence or self-control. It is also explained in the Bible that if a person marries another person while the first is alive, he shall be called a fornicator / adulteress. This is not a church that has taken up, it is the Holy God has written in His Word. It's too easy to give the blame for moral attitudes to the "orthodox" churches, when the word of God supports this beyond a shadow of a doubt, Mr. Simonnes. The Bible speaks straight forward on this issue, and we must not use other words, God's words makes the matter. God calls it lust, not love. Hollywood calls it "true" love. See and Hear the call to "find love" either for the first or umpteenth time someone gets a new woman or man. Yet the Bible calls the flesh. Simonnes use the statement "some Christian communities is critical to re-marry." I wonder what it's environments. Thinking he only Norway, as the little mole we are on earth, or thinking globally?

Arnhild Gjendem: "This divorce has always stood in the way of Wenche and Odd could marry - because some Christian communities is critical to re-marry." Citation Simone Some Christian communities? It is Jesus himself have to take the debate with Helge Simones: Jesus: "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another driver hair. And whoever marries a woman divorced from her husband, driver, hair." Luke 16.18.

Thinking: We should be able to discuss from the Bible without having to characterize each other (s interpretation). Here (previous post), I took not for me bible quotes, but: what are the consequences humanly speaking about the Bible had said that the innocent party may marry again, but not the other. What sin have the others in that case made, which means that it can not get married again? If one believes that divorce and remarriage is not sin, then one can only marry many times. But most realize, that when one has promised to love and honor the life out ... . If one believes that divorce is a sin, one could say that God forgives sin. But when it says clearly that remarriage is not allowed, then one can not commit sin grace. Being married is the signing of a covenant and a promise. It can not be forgiven - it's PITY God forgives. If someone does not understand the difference here, but believe that both divorce and remarriage is a sin, they believe, then, that it is a sin that God will forgive 70 x 7 times?? The Pharisees did the counsel of God for themselves (Luke 7, 30), they put God's commandment to keep its own regulations (Mark 7:9). There are unfortunately many do today, too, not least when it comes to these issues. Therefore, loving guidance from God's Word is important (vital for eternal life) and correct, and is not to be confused with acid criticism. When Pilate would make people's liking, he Barabbas, but Jesus let scourge. It seems that many managers will make people pleased today too, but those are not ashamed of Jesus and what He said, they are more or less "rods". John the Baptist way, sacrificed his life to tell him that it was not lawful for him to have the new wife (his brother's wife) whom he had married. The Lord Himself strong support it is completely with him in his heart (2CH. 16:9). Those who want to live alone after a divorce because they want to follow the Lord's Word, you can count on the support! Yes, God will turn all the evil they have experienced for good to them! What a great God we have!

Øyvind Kleiveland: Agree, Think! One thought on: if the Bible had opened for remarriage, how many had been "too many"? 5? 15? When I ask people who are married again, think always that there are "too many" marriage if someone is married more times than themselves. Is not that typical? God level, EN, human level is always ONE MORE THAN ME ....

wasco55 All of these problems have arisen because our Norwegian Bible is translated to concur with what has been the church's "teachings" in the last few hundred years. Jesus never talked about divorce but about "sending away" The Greek word used whenever Jesus talks about divorce is apoluo. The Greek word for divorce is apostasion. Apoluo is used many times in the NT, and is then overrsatt with, to send away. But the strange thing is that every time Jesus speaks of marriage is the same word translated in divorce in the Norwegian Bible. That Jesus took hold of, was the fact that the Jews of Jesus' time had taken by the customs that were common in other pagan cultures. There, it was common for a man to send away his wife, without taking responsibility for her future. God had given directives on how a divorce would take place. The man who would stand, would give his wife a certificate of divorce. This also meant that he would pay back the dowry his wife had brought into the marriage, and in some cases also parts of common acquired property or other assets. With a divorce, the wife could also remarry. But it was tempting to just overpower send away his wife, without all the formalities. Then he spared himself both money and worries. But the woman was then left without financial resources, and she could not remarry. This practice gave the Pharisees his tacit consent, and this was what Jesus reacted. Divorce and remarriage was not a problem in Jesus time. It first became an issue after the Catholic Church made marriage a sacrament. But this did not happen until the 12 century. Church Orthodox view on this topic is a legacy of the Catholic Church, and has no basis in Scripture.

norskiUtlandet: Hello, Wasco! Stakeholder posts and you're probably right in the wording of the translation. However, a translation must not only render word for word, but the text's meaning. If you read this in context, you will see that Jesus wanted to get away from the practice of divorce and divorce. He did not want that to happen at all! Although you probably have a point, so the question is not so simple. Some Pharisees came to test him, they asked: "Should a man be allowed to divorce his wife by any reason? " 4 He answered, "Have you not read that the Creator from the beginning made them male and female 5 and said, 'Therefore a man shall leave father and mother and hold fast to his woman, and the two will become one body.' 6 So they are no longer two, they are one body. And what God has joined together, let man not separate. " 7 And they asked him, "Why then did Moses command that a man give the woman a bill of divorce before he can send her away?" 8 He replied: "Because of your hardness of heart, Moses permitted you to separated from their wives. But from the beginning it was not so. 9 I say to you, whoever divorces his wife for any other reason than fornication, and marries another woman commits adultery. "Matt. 19.3 to 9. The text also suggests that radical in what Jesus says at the disciples' reaction. It's clear that they think this was strictly.

Thanks for this. The Bible clearly states, both here and several other places that divorce (away sending spouses) is not God's will, and that one who is divorced can not remarry while the first spouse is still living. But there is also a "mistake" to the Norwegian translation. Both Greek and Hebrew has two different words for "adultery". Jesus says here in Matt.19: "But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife for no other reason than fornication (porneia, fornication) and marries another, commits adultery (moikjatai, driver adultery). And whoever marries a divorced woman adulteress (moikjatai). The disciples said to Him: Is the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry! " Bible's original text uses two different words in this verse are both translated into the same Norwegian word adultery. The Greek the word "porn" prostitute comes from another Greek word, pernemi, which means sell. It was spent on prostitutes who committed indecent acts against payment, thereby sold the bodies of those who wanted to. "Porneia" was the usual word for fornication and correspond with the Hebrew "tsenut". More dictionaries translates this word with prostitution. The other Greek word is "moicheia", which corresponds to the Hebrew "na'af" and expresses action in relation to marriage and translated usually with adultery. That is just "porneia" which provides the basis for divorce according to Jesus. The word should be translated with fornication here as elsewhere, as some translations do as well. What is so divorce because of "porneia"? When Jesus comes with this statement, he is in discussion with the Pharisees who debated the topic from the Law of Moses. Divorce because of "porneia" is featured in 5.Mos 22.13 to 21. Here it is the Hebrew "tsenut" used, but this precisely match the Greek "porneia". We see here that the divorce because of "tsenut" (fornication) is relevant when a woman has given himself out to be a virgin, but as it turns that she was not there yet, but had driven "tsenut" in his father's house. "Tsenut / porneia" Nothing stands for fornication committed before marriage. Then the marriage contract built a deception from the woman's side and was therefore not final and could canceled. If the man would demand a divorce on the grounds of "tsenut" so he had to provide proof of the elders who was to decide the case. Won man is not forward with his claim he had to take her in marriage and not divorce from her as long as he lived (verse 19). Therefore Ceremony in Israel usually held the day before the elders had their weekly council meeting so that any issues be processed promptly. In this light, it therefore difficult to interpret Jesus' statement that when a marriage is in solution because one party is cheating as it provides a basis for divorce and remarriage. Had Jesus meant what He would have used the word for adultery ("Moicheia"). Alternatively, he could use both "porneia" and "Moicheia" as he does in Matt.15, 19 But when he does not, we must be careful not to add anything to what Jesus said. The last sentence is then also difficult to misunderstand. Here Jesus says plainly, "He who marries a divorced woman driver adultery. " Such an understanding of what Jesus said to us seem very strict, and it is difficult to get it to fit with Jesus' great charity. But we must not change the biblical words to get it to fit in our environment, even if It could be tempting. Among the Pharisees had a party a very liberal views on divorce / remarriage while the other party believed that only fornication / adultery was good enough reason. Then when Jesus took a stance that was more stringent than the highest among the Pharisees were also disciples of Jesus marveled. We are also allowed to wonder about it, but we would do well to take Jesus' words seriously and not try to explain it away.

Øyvind Kleiveland: Good point, nail. If Christians had lived out the Bible talks about, as the number had fallen dramatically divorce. If you know that the Bible says that you are bound to their first spouse as long as both are alive, then you had thought about it several times before it just "went". If the choice is to live the rest of your life in "one room and kitchen" or to keep out further, I think many had chosen something else.

Final Comment: To the older I get I see it as impossible that a believer may remarry if both were believers when they entered into the marriage, who should be able to judge as to who may be the guilty and the innocent party as it's called? No! Remarriage is adultery if there is a physical death. And should one get married again, so is than an adulterer or adulteress!

Remarriage, any problem? No, it is sin and adultery teach God's word! Now also former Bishop Odd Bondevik married a divorcee in his old age according Gjendem, when he turns himself into the ranks of so many others! Part 4

A preacher is a director, and if he's divorced and re-married to a believer will propagate, and the effects it creates is formidable and terrible and unrecoverable. This illustration of a road cracking and is dangerous to drive on, so also are preachers who have re-married as believers

1 Pet. 5. The elders among you I exhort that medeldste and witness the sufferings of Christ, as the one and share in the glory that shall be revealed: 2 Watch the flock of God which is among you, and supervise it, not by compulsion but willingly, not for filthy gain, but of willing heart, not three, as those who rule over their congregations, but so that I will model for his flock.

Remarriage among preachers is and remains a risky word of God warns us against

Yet it is a sign that become believers and holds a service, and set stricter criteria. It says several places in Paul's teachings that one must be a woman's husband (see Pastoral letters). What? James says in his epistle chapter 3:1: "My brethren! Not many of you should become teachers! For we know that we will get the stricter judgment. " The responsibility is huge to be preaching. There is a big difference between being a regular church member and being a preacher. But that's not to say that one is more loved by God, but it has to be true of the responsibility God has given. I believe that God will forgive any sin all. But there are other things that need to be considered, which preaches possess any special responsibility. Would someone in a profane context allowed a pedophile to work with children? No. Equally clear is the Scripture that we should not allow a re-married preacher should preach to other people with a pastoral and teaching responsibilities. That one is Evangelist such as Frank Mang was after he was divorced, we permissible. But do not be installed as Pastor, pastoral or elder. One should not be the leader of the flock and the herd, but be even under a system of inspection. But when one holds an office as minister, and so a lot is demanded. Therefore James says that not many will be preachers. Why can not a preacher taking liberties only at his own expense, he has a special responsibility upon God and his fellow man. When it comes to marriage, then it is not permissible for a minister to marry again under any circumstances, then disqualifies him for the office he has received. It's like a runner cut off his legs, he is no longer fit to be a sportsman, if he wants to. A minister should be the husband of one wife, we see Paul teaches about time after time. (1 Tim. 3.2 and Titus 1:6). Should anything be unclear here, so I recommend to submit a question to our blog or write something yourself there. This could and should have been a common Christian understanding where not gjengiftetde got and could go far and round. There are spirits, demonic such as follows in the footsteps of loose sexual and moral life. Tim. 4. 1. Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith. They should stick to seducing spirits, and doctrines stemming from evil. 2 They are deceived by lying hypocrites who are seared in their own conscience. 3 These people refuse to marry and requires that one should stay away from certain types of food, even God has created this for those who believe and know the truth, to receive it with thanks. 4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is reprehensible when it is received with thanksgiving. 5 It is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. There is no talk of A and B Christians. Marriage is a God-given solution, which also shows the relationship between Christ and the church. Therefore it lies in the nature here, that it be so demanding. God stands behind their word, so it is a model of something even bigger and richer. Our relationship with Jesus and His relationship to us. So be careful with both you marry and you are not staining your life here. If you live in accordance with God's word here, is the best predicted not make you grow as believers. 1. Tess. 4. 1. Finally, brothers, pray and urge you in the Lord Jesus, You have received and learned from us how you ought to live to please God and to live already. But you have to make even greater strides in this! 2 You know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus. 3 For this is the will of God - your sanctification: You should keep away from fornication; 4 everyone should know how to possess his own wife in holiness and honor, 5 not in carnal lust like the Gentiles, and they do not even know God. 6 And no need to make his brother wrongs or deceive him in these things. Lord punishes all such, we have previously said and put you in anger. 7 For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but in holiness. 8 Therefore, he who rejects this does not reject man, but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit. We read that Scripture gives a clear testimony of the priest of the Old Covenant, how he should live, who stood in the same responsibility before God and his fellow man as the preacher man and supervision are in the new covenant. 3. Genesis 9:14 p.m.: "A widow or a divorced woman, or profane, or an harlot - something like that he must not marry. A virgin of his people shall he take to wife. " We read that God gives the same testimony and require the same of the priest during the upcoming 1000 årsriket to serve the people of Jerusalem in Israel, where the law shall go forth from it. Ezekiel 44:22: "A widow or a woman her husband have separated themselves from it, they shall not take to wife, but only virgins of Israel. But they can take a widow who is the widow of a priest. " When Scripture is so clear when it comes to the priest of the Old Covenant and the 1000-årsriket, it is no less clear when it comes to the church dispensation, we are living under the most glorious and greatest privilege of all, "one woman man". As the Scripture says that it is demonic and seductive to refuse a minister and overseer to marry (1 Tim. 4:1), it is coming under the same adverse conditions to accept and allowed the preachers marries again while the spouse lives. It is only by death that it may be appropriate for a director to remarry again, and then with one who is not divorced! Among other Derek Prince was a great Bible teacher married a divorcee, this of course was never God's will. Hopefully he was saved he did against God's will.

Final Comment: Remarriage for believers sin, but to allow it among preachers is especially bad when a minister is an example and a model for all other believers. Therefore, to allow remarriage among ministers of the church are writing their own death warrant!
