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!
