Nr. 369: Leader of Evangelisenteret in Norway, Monika Johansen daughter Lise Ludvik and Karlsen is re-married a Christian! Then she can not be a good and sincere leader. The services are not inherited, they must grow into even if it is from God!

Nr. 369: Leader of Evangelisenteret in Norway, Monika Johansen daughter Lise Ludvik and Karlsen is re-married a Christian! Then she can not be a good and sincere leader. The services are not inherited, they must grow into even if it is from God!

Head of Evangelisenteret in Norway, Monika Johansen daughter Lise Ludvik and Karlsen is re-married a Christian! She should be a model for new believers junkies, but live even in darkness. Can one be a light when even live in darkness? No! This is and remains a delusion! Here she is at the far left of the picture and the far right is her son from her first marriage. Now she is married with Holger Johansen who is pretending to be a Bible teacher but reminds me more of a Sunday school teacher of spiritual fittings!

Monica Johansen will be a model for the newly saved former addicts. The fact that she is living in adultery with Holger Johansen according to the word of God, makes her a role model not for the believers who will live in accordance with God's word. Luke 16 18 Whosoever putteth away his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and whoever marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery.

Be a role model if you will be in the lead, not live to God's word

God followers As children of God we are called to be His followers, this means that he is our example in all things. Ephesians 5.1 Therefore be imitators of God, as His beloved children. Jesus revealed God's glory, and proved to be an image of God's being. Heb 1.3 He is the brightness of God's glory and the express image of his person, and he bears all things by the word of his power. After he had finished the cleansing of our sins, he sat down at the right hand of Majesty on high. This means that as Jesus is, so also God. We are followers of God to walk in Jesus' footsteps and become conformed to him. Rooms 8.29 For whom he foreknew, he also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn of many brothers. God's goal for us is thus that we should be conformed to the image of His Son, we must in other words be most like Jesus. Called, justified and glorified In the next verse we see that it all begins with the fact that we are called by God. When we accept the call and think, are we justified. And when we are righteous, God let his glory rest upon us, like the glory rests on Jesus. Rooms 8.30 And those whom he predestined to, them he also called. And whom he called, them he also justified. And those whom he justified, them he also glorified. Jesus is the firstborn of all that is an image of the nature of God (verse 29). We are his siblings, and God treats us in exactly the same way as Jesus. God is for us, and he gives us all things with Jesus. Rooms from 8.31 to 32 What shall we then say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 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? It is this that is the key to be imitators of God. Jesus was given as a propitiation for our sins so that we were right with God. Because of this, God can give us all things with him, including the brightness of his glory and the express image of his person. 2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a mirror, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of God. The image we are being transformed into the image of God's nature, we become like Jesus to see God's glory. Spiritual leaders When we become like Jesus, we can be role models for other people, and it is this spiritual leadership is about. You are a spiritual leader if other people follow you and become more like Jesus on it. Paul was a spiritual leader because he was an example for the believers to such a degree that they were conformed to Christ to follow him. He knew that the glory of God was upon him so that he was like Jesus. Therefore, he could say with confidence that the faithful should be his successors. File 3.17 Brethren, be my followers! And heed to those who walk according to the example you have in us. A spiritual leader serves as a role model so that people are conformed to Christ. And when people like him are formed with their own spiritual leaders who can be an example for other believers. 1 Thessalonians 1.6 to 1 And you, our Lord and successors, as ye received the word in much tribulation with the joy of the Holy Spirit. So you have become a role model for all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia. Spiritual leadership is about Christ-likeness. He who has the title of being the leader but do not resemble Christ, he is just a blind guide who leads people into the ditch. Being trained as a disciple of Jesus is to be just like him. Lk 6.39 to 40 He told a parable to them: Can a blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into the ditch? A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher. It is very important to understand this. Unless we become like Him, we can not lead the people of God. For he is the good shepherd who gives his life for the sheep, and we must be like Him if we are to be shepherds with him. Jesus came not to be ministered unto, but to minister. He is a servant, and his followers are the servants. Leadership in the Kingdom of God is not about power. The princes of the world ruler, but the leaders of the kingdom of God and serve people give themselves. Food 20.25-28 But Jesus called them together and said, Ye know that the princes ruling over them, and their great men exercise authority over them. It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you, let him be your servant, and whoever would be first among you, let him be your slave, even as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and give His life a ransom for many. Jesus is great because he has given us everything. He gave his life so God can give us all things with him. It is great in the kingdom of God as resembling him and becomes a servant with him. Leadership and servants are two sides of the same coin. Jesus is a servant. A leader is a person who resembles him. Jesus is the norm for all spiritual leadership. He said also that he himself is the way, the truth and the life. When we are in him, we go the right way, the truth is in us, and our lives show the brightness of God's glory and the express image of his person. It is the power that makes us like Jesus. It is God's Spirit that transforms us and enables us to be role models. It's not our age which gives us authority as leaders, but that is the extent to which Jesus Christ won likeness in us. Therefore Paul also teaches his young friend Timothy about what it means to be a leader and an example of the faithful. 1 Tim 4:12 Let no man despise thy youth, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity Here we see that Paul mentions five areas where he wants Timothy to be an example. This is because these five areas are important aspects of Jesus' person and ministry. Timothy was called to imitate the Lord in these areas so that the faithful may grow up into him who is the head, Christ. We will look into these areas, as this is essential to our growth in the Lord and our lives as spiritual leaders.


It is probably no coincidence that the speech is mentioned first when Paul instructs Timothy to be a spiritual role model. For the words we say can manage both ourselves and the situation around us. The tongue is like a horse bridle and the rudder on a boat. And a word can be the fire that set a whole forest on fire. Jak 3.3 to 5 When we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us, and we turn about their whole body. Behold also the ships, which are so large and are driven of fierce winds, they are governed by a very small helm, whithersoever want. So it is with the tongue. It is a little member, but still speaks big words. See, a little fire, how much forest it sets on fire. It is not the helm that drives a sailboat, there is the strong power of the wind makes. However helm steering the boat course and direction relative to the wind. Likewise, it is not what we say that drives us. But nevertheless it is our words that determine what direction our life goes. When our voice is in harmony with the Word of God, our lives will be steered in the right direction and power of God can fulfill God works in our lives. Everything Jesus did on Earth was in accordance with the Father's will. He said that he heard the Father say, and he never contradicted what was written in the scriptures. John 8:28 Jesus said: When you get exalted Son of man, then shall ye know that I am who I am. And for myself I do nothing, but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. Thus it was the Father who taught Jesus what he should say and why his voice is always in harmony with the Father's will. And he who does not stumble in word, the same is a perfect man. Jak 3.2 And we stumble in many things. The offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, able to keep his whole body in check. The tongue is life and death in his power, and the words we speak are of great importance. Words 18.21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and all who love it will eat its fruit. Jesus said that His words were spirit and life. Jn 6.63 It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh profits nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. Jesus had divine wisdom and his words were the words of God, therefore his words heal. Word 24:18 Mindless voice sticks as swords, but the tongue heals. The tongue has no man was able to tame. Jak 3.8 But the tongue can no man tame. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Fortunately, it is impossible with men is possible with God. In our own strength it is useless, but the Holy Spirit can tame our tongue so that our words are in accordance with God's will. If this were possible, would our worship be in vain. For it is written: James 1:26 Anyone who believes that he worships God, and not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain. But we need not deceive our own hearts and live with a vain worship. The Holy Spirit was upon Christ is upon us, and he will teach us to say what is pleasing to him. God does not want us to grieve the Holy Spirit with our words, but we will speak words of encouragement and giving something to those who hear. Ephesians 4.29-31 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but good speech is edifying, and some of those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, with all malice. When we speak words that are in the heart of God, people are brought closer to Jesus and being conformed to him. But if we are going to slander and corrupt communication we push people away from him. Then we will be the opposite of spiritual leaders, we are ye would that lead God's children away from the truth. It is God who works in us so that we know and can do his good will, even when it comes to the words we speak. File 2.14 For it is God who works in you both to will and to act according to his good pleasure. Just as a tree can be recognized by its fruit it bears, a man identified by the words it says. For what is in the heart, will appear in the speech. Food 12.33-37 Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad. For the fruit of the tree feels. You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. The good man brings good things from the good treasure, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil treasure. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account on the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. We have passed from death to life and is therefore not for judgment. Therefore, we will not be condemned by God. But we would be justified because we had faith in our hearts and confessed with our mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord. But this passage shows us how important our words are, death and life are in the power of the tongue, and the words reflect what is in our hearts. Therefore God begins with the heart when to make us more like Jesus. When we are born again, he changed our stone heart with a heart of flesh that longs to serve God and do His will. Ezekiel 36.26-27 I will give you a new heart and a new spirit will I give in you. I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. My spirit will I give in you, and I will make it so that you obey my commandments and keep my statutes and do them. Then he will begin a process of us there also renew our minds so that we can think thoughts that are consistent with our new nature and his good will. Rooms 12.2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is the will of God, what is good, that which he delights in, it's perfect. When Christ is formed in our minds, he will also mark our words. A man full of Jesus Christ will not come with mindless talk or coarse jokes. When Jesus' nature and love fills the mind, we have God's wisdom. The show is characterized by Christ, and it appears heavy heals. Christ is the Word that became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, who is full of grace and truth. John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. And we saw his glory, the glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. The glory was revealed through Jesus because he is God's word. The Way to Christ-likeness goes through to let the Word work in us and reveal the same glory through us. When we are purveyors of the same grace and truth that Jesus told. This is a profound mystery, I'm thinking now of the relationship between faith in the Word and revelation of Christ. For the word to be close to us, both in our hearts and in our mouths. When we become like Christ, we think in accordance with the word of God, and our speech is affected. And when we preach the word of faith, that's what we preach: that word in our hearts and speak in accordance with the word of God reveals the glory of Christ who is full of grace and truth. Rooms 8.8 But what does it say? The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart. It is the word of faith, which we preach. A spiritual leader is a person who is filled with God's word and speak accordingly. The leader becomes a role model for other people who see Christ's glory to be revealed through the manager's life. Those who follow the leader will also be conformed to Christ.

2. An example in conversation

Paul said that we could have him as a role model. He could say this because he knew that his conduct reflected the nature of Christ. 1 Corinthians 11.1 Be my followers, as I follow Christ! The same humility, perseverance, obedience and love that characterized Jesus was present in Paul's life. We get a glimpse of this when Paul takes leave of the elders of Ephesus. Acts 20.18-24 When they arrived, he said to them: You know how my journey sometimes you were, all the time from the first day I came to Asia. I served the Lord with all humility and tears and trials which befell me by the Jews' evil plans. I did not hold back anything that could be of benefit to you, but proclaimed it to you, and taught you publicly and in the houses. I testified to both Jews and Greeks about repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. And behold, bound by the Spirit, I go to Jerusalem and do not know what will happen to me there. I only know that the Holy Spirit in every city witnesses to me and saying that chains and tribulations facing me. But for myself I intend not my life a word worth, when I can just perfecting my race and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of God's grace. Jesus came not to be ministered unto, but to minister. In the same way, Paul had no other wish than to complete the course God had planned for him and be in the service of God at all times. He endured trials and persecution because he had Christ's humility and perseverance. Acts 20.31 Watch therefore: Remember that in three years, night and day, not ceased to admonish each one with tears. A spiritual leader understands that he is an example for the believers in their journey, and he is willing to invest the time and effort of the people he will lead. When we follow Jesus' example, we are servants who put others above ourselves.


To be imitators of God means to walk in the love of God just as Jesus gave himself for us. Ef 5.1 to 2 Therefore be imitators of God as dearly loved children and walk in love (agape), just as Christ loved us and gave Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma. In ourselves we can not walk in this love, but God's unconditional love, agape, is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. Rooms 5.5 And hope maketh not ashamed, for God's love (agape) is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. Jesus said that this love will be our hallmark. Jn 13.34-35 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; As I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this they will know that you are my disciples, if ye have love (agape) one another. Paul was a spiritual leader who had great love for the people he led. 2 Cor 2.4 It was with great distress and anxiety heart I wrote unto you with many tears. It was not to make you sad, but that you would come to know how much love (agape) I have for you. God instituted marriage as a picture of Christ's relationship to the church. Just as Christ loved the church and gave himself for it, owes men to love their wives. To love one's spouse is to put the other higher than himself. Ephesians 5.25-27 You men! Love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for it, to sanctify and cleanse it of water by the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that it should be holy and without blemish. Christian marriage that works in God's love is a strong testimony of Jesus Christ. Spiritual leaders are called to be role models who through their marriage. When the love of God will fill us, we are role models for the faithful in love, and they will be drawn to Jesus when they are with us. For spiritual leadership is about to resemble Jesus so that people are drawn to him.


Faith works with our deeds. A living faith will always show itself in deeds, and therefore one can look at a person's actions if it believes or not. Jak 2.21 to 22 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? You see that faith wrought with his works, and faith was perfected by works. It is a model of faith, a faith that is lived out in deeds. Abraham's faith proved that he left Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land God had promised him, he waited for the promised son Isaac, and since he was obedient and willing to sacrifice Isaac because he had faith in God who raises the dead. Rooms from 4.16 to 21 For this he was lifted by faith, that it might be by grace, so that the promise might be firm for the entire clan, not just those who have the law, but also for those who have the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all, as it is written: To the father of many nations have I made thee. He is our father in the sight of God - the God whom he believed, who makes the dead alive and calls on it not to, as it were. Against hope he believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to what was said, so shall thy seed be. Without becoming weak in faith he thought of his own body, which had already outlived - he was almost a hundred years - and that Sarah's life was extinct. But the promise of God He staggered not through unbelief, but was strong in his faith as he gave glory to God. He was fully persuaded that what God had promised, and he was able to do. Abraham a model for us in the faith. He had faith in the heart and acted on it. Because Abraham was obedient to God's call and believed the promises of God, we can be obedient to God and believe his words today. In the same way we are called to be role models for other people in our faith and how we live it out. Faith comes by hearing the preaching of Christ's word. Rooms 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, that hearing, and hearing hear the words of Christ. But it is much easier to accept the promises of God in preaching if we have spiritual leaders who take the faith. Abraham's life witness to us that it is possible to trust in God. Likewise, we will help people to accept God's promises when we live by faith in the promises. Jesus lived in an intimate relationship with the Father, and his belief rubbed off on the people who followed him. When we resemble Jesus, we live by faith, and people who follow us get closer to him.


Jesus lived a life on earth, where he was in all points tempted without sinning. Hebrews 4:15 For we have not a high priest who can not sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Jesus lived a perfect life and is an example for us to live in purity. Jesus was perfect in their minds, their words and their deeds. He showed us how to face temptation and come victorious out of them. Jesus' atonement on the cross has made us right with God, and we are holy and blameless before God because of this. Ephesians 1.4 For him, he has chosen us before the foundation was laid, that we should be holy and blameless before him. This is the starting point for our walk with the Lord. We are already holy and clean through the blood of Jesus that cleanses us from all sin. Still speaks the words of God that we should put off sin and live for it is worthy of the vocation we are called. Ef 4.1 to 3 I beseech you therefore, I who am a prisoner of the Lord, that you walk so it is worthy of the calling you is called, with all humility and gentleness, with longsuffering, making allowance for each other in love, and seeks to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. When we are saved, we are no longer slaves to sin, but we are the servants of righteousness. Sin shall not have dominion over us, and we will prepare our members as weapons of righteousness to God. Rooms from 6.11 to 13 How shall you count those who died to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye obey its lusts. Still not their limbs available to sin, as instruments of unrighteousness. But shew yourselves to God as those of dead is alive, and by their members voted weapons of righteousness to God. The cleansing blood of Jesus puts us into right relationship with God. When we live a life of purity, set ourselves available for God to use us as an effective weapon in the spiritual battle. We can not continue to live a life of defilement by the blood of Jesus has cleansed us and God has called us to serve Him. Ef 5.3 to 5 But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness must not even be named among you - as is fitting for saints - nor shamelessness and foolish talk or frivolous jesting, which are indecent. On the contrary, let it also brought giving thanks For this ye know, that no sexually immoral or living in filth, not someone who is greedy - he is an idolater - has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Spiritual leaders have realized how important it is to live in purity. One can not be a spiritual role model and simultaneously make light of God's commandments and regulations for a holy life. God has called us to the separation of the spirit of this world, and he calls leaders to go ahead and live in Christ's purity. If someone falls, there is forgiveness of sins. But God wants his managers to live at a higher standard of cleanliness than many believers today. There is no question of Pharisaism and legalism, but it is about to become more conformed to Jesus Christ. Jesus was thinking pure thoughts, pure words he spoke and lived a life of purity without sin. When the Holy Spirit will do His work in us, he is working on all three levels. He wants us to have a pure thought life. When will our voice be clean. And he who does not stumble in word, the same is a perfect man, also in his actions. God calls leaders to separation and purification to be conformed to the image of His Son. And when he finds people who will let themselves shape of him, he can also entrust them his glory. His majestic power and authority shall follow the servants who are totally with him in his heart and that can be conformed to Christ. God is raising up a new generation of spiritual influences that keep a new standard in Christ-likeness, people who radiate Christ to such a degree that people are being drawn into the kingdom of God and conformed to Jesus. A spiritual leader's greatest joy is to increasingly become more like Jesus and be a role model for people as they are shaped in his image.

Final Comment: It's really bad that such a large and comprehensive work and service that is Evangelisenteret. The divorce and subsequent are so prevalent. And there are those in the lead with Jostein Kirkenes, Monica Johansen \ Karlsen etc. who are divorced and re-married one or two times. Pity those who enter the Evangelisenteret and is saved. And that is not grounded in the word of God, they must believe that the "normal" Christianity is to do as a self desires and wants. This is delusion and Laodicean Christianity. Jesus is the church's head and Lord, is no past and knocks on whether to come down to the individual to have fellowship and community. I do not know how this will end, but it is a viable way out of everything and into something new and wonderful. It is to follow God's word is a lamp unto our feet and a light to our path. There is only one thing we can rely on to reach the Celestial country, it is to follow God's word and take it as written stand, believe and follow it.

To you who are reading this testimony, and know that God is calling you, then I will node you to say a definite "YES" to His call. Surrender all your heart and invite Him into your heart, going all the way with Him, put Him first place in your life. Let him in, He will make you a new creature in Christ Jesus. It's like a little song says: "To obey and believe, it offers rest and tranquility; About His power to know, to so sound then and believe." And the Bible says, "Obedience is better than sacrifice." For if you does according to His Word (the Bible) as it is written, God will above His Own Words give you a new birth and the Holy Ghost.
