Nr. 520:

If we let us be deceived?

I take no position here in this article to Rune Øygard whether he was guilty or not and what sentence he'd received, etc. just stating that here was a mega-profile person in two courts are convicted as a perpetrator. But nobody noticed anything in advance, and were believed? We need so much more to be safe than sorry! I have warned several preachers and Christian leaders. Among other Pastor Jan Hanvold who is remarried as a Christian and as for the word of God living in adultery. There will be many sure in a few years to thank me that I warned - in advance! But it does not matter, I know what God's word says, that I shall relate to and let it be my guide in life and learn.

Emperors new clothes by author H. C. Andersen

Many years ago there lived an Emperor who was so fond of beautiful new clothes, that he left all his money to go to finery and trappings. Did he go to the theater, he took himself a drive or kept his revue of his soldiers, these things amused him really, he did it just to show off their new clothes. He had a set TOI for each hour of the day, and he did not, like other kings, its time to scrutinize government affairs, but to change clothes.

There were often strangers to visit the large, cheerful city that he had his residence in. One day two impostors, who gave himself out to be weavers, and said that they were able to weave the loveliest imaginable TOI customer. And it was not just that the pattern was so beautiful and the colors so unusually beautiful, no, her belongings had also the peculiar property that clothes that they made of it was invisible to all the people that were worthless in their offices or too stupid utilladelig .

"There were some lovely clothes," thought the emperor. "When I wear the clothes, I get the words out about who is apt to his office, and who is not, I will be able to distinguish between the wise and the foolish. It must TOI weaved right away. "Then he gave the two impostors a lot of money upfront, that they soon could approach their work.

They set up two looms and pretended that they work, but they had not the slightest grand on the web. Fort away they demanded the finest silk and the most attractive gold thread, but they put it all together in their own bag and work only with the empty looms far into the night. When some time had passed, did the emperor wanted to know how far they had come with her belongings. But by thinking that whoever was stupid or incompetent, could not see it, he was a little strange to fashion. Naturally he did not waver in themselves in that piece, but it could still be quite nice to try with another first. The whole town knew what strange force her belongings had, and all were very opsatt to know how incompetent or stupid neighbor was.

"I will send my old, honest minister to the weavers," thought the emperor, "he understands best about her belongings takes himself, he has plenty of capable and is a capable officer."

Then the old, respectable minister into the hall where the two impostors sat working at the empty looms. "God preserve me well," thought the old minister and played up her eyes, "I can not see anything!" But he did not say. Both the impostors begged him to come closer. They pointed to the empty tissue, and asked if there was a beautiful pattern and lovely colors. The poor old minister makes his eyes still more, but he could not see anything, for there was nothing. "Lord God," he thought, "I should really be stupid? I would never have believed. Or should I be incompetent as officer? No, it's probably best I pretend that I see her belongings. "

"Now, how do you do that?" Asked one of the weavers. "Oh, it's beautiful, utterly adorable," said the old minister, and pretended he looked at it through the glasses. "For such a pattern and colors! Yes, I'll tell the emperor that I find it utterly delicious. " "We are delighted," said both the weavers. And they gave him to mention the different colors by name and explain the strange pattern. The old minister listened well after, that he might say the same thing when he came to the emperor.

Impostors now demanded more money, and more silk and gold thread to weave. They put everything into their own pockets. On the web, never a shred, and they continued as before to weave on the blank cells. A little later the emperor sent another proper officer who was to see how it went with the loom, and about her belongings were soon finished. It went with him as with the minister, he looked and looked but could not see anything.

"Is not it a beautiful TOI?" Said both impostors, and they pointed out and explained the lovely pattern, which simply was not there. "Stupid, I'm not," thought the man, 'I must therefore be incompetent as an officer. It was then hoist strange! But it's probably best to sound like nothing. "And then he praised her belongings that he saw, and said he had never seen such a beautiful pattern and such delicious colors. When he returned to the emperor, he assured that her belongings were wonderful. The whole city spoke of nothing else.

Now, did the emperor want to even see her belongings, while it was still on the loom. Accompanied by a multitude chosen men, among them two old, decent officers, he went to the two impostors, who constantly tissue of all forces without thread or shred. "Yes, is not it wonderful," said both the proper officials. "Has Your Majesty hath ever set such a pattern and these colors' They pointed to the empty loom, for they thought that others could see her belongings. "But what the heck ...!" Thought the emperor dismayed, "I do not know anything. Am I stupid, or I'm not good enough to be emperor? It was then the worst that could happen me! "But he nodded anyway satisfied as long as the empty tissue and said," toiet have my very highest approbation, "The procession stared and stared. The so naturally neither any, but said that the emperor that it was an exceptionally beautiful fabric. They said to him that he should inaugurate the new clothes at the great procession which was soon to take place. And among themselves, they talked about how wonderful her belongings were, and they were all so dearly amusements with it. The emperor gave fraudsters knight cross to adorn themselves with and title of vevejunkere.

The last night before the big procession was to take place, both impostors set up and had kindled a lot of light. People could probably see that they were in no hurry to get emperor's clothes ready. They pretended that they took her belongings out of the loom, the cut with large scissors in the air, they sewed with needles without thread, and when it was day, they sent the clothes were finished. The emperor arrived, followed by his nobles escorts. Impostors got it now, hurry to show off the different klædningsstykker that simply did not exist, praised them in high tones, and said that they were as fine as spider webs and so light that one could not notice that you had them on, and it was precisely the beauty of the case. All cavaliers said yes and amen, but they saw the nothing, for there was nothing to see.

"Yes, so will your Imperial Majesty may please to take your clothes off," said the impostors, "so we can put on the new clothes away at the large mirror?" The emperor then overlaid by himself, and impostors pretended that they had in him the new clothes, piece by piece. Finally pretending to be something tied up behind, it would be as tow. The emperor turned and turned in front of the mirror. "No, as excellent as the new outer garments sitting, and that the clothes Your Majesty," said everybody. "A, for a pattern! A, these colors! Yes, it's an expensive suit! " Nu notified overceremonimesteren, that those who should bear the canopy over the emperor in the procession, stood outside the door with it.

"Yes, I'm fully ready," said the emperor. "Sitting not suit brilliant 'they turned and he turned once more in front of the mirror to show that he correctly saw the stately suit. Chamber gentlemen who were to carry the train, as it were lifted up from the floor and pretended that they brought it, they dared course not let anyone notice that they saw nothing. So went the Emperor in procession during the feast pavilion, and people on the streets and people in the windows spoke in chorus: "No, so matchless clothes! Oh, what a beautiful tow! It sits beautifully, "There was no one who dared to be in that he did not saw nothing, for then he had to be either stupid or incompetent in his office. Never had the emperor's clothes made such luck.

"But he is stark naked," said a little child.

"Lord God, hear what the innocent child says," the father said. And so it went like a whisper of mouth what the child had said. - Finally, cried: "The emperor is the brand nakenl»

The emperor was startled literally, for he thought they were right, but he thought that: "Now it's time to keep your ears stiff while prose: tion lasts." And then he went even strunkere and chamber gentlemen went behind and as bar tow. (End of quote).

How bad or how good are you?

The church in Laodicea was called for one thing above all else, it was getting eye ointment:

Joh. Obvious. 3 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich, and white garments, that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed, and eye-salve to anoint thine eyes with , that you can see!

It's all too much sweetness for today preaching. Not what we need to develop healthy and be able to put all the good work that we should be as believers.

2 Timothy 2:21 holder when man himself clean from these, he will be a vessel unto honor, sanctified, and meet for the master, prepared good works. 2 Timothy 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Timothy 2:20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some to dishonor. 2 Timothy 2:2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also!

We "lose" what God has for us in today's amputees and faulty preaching and teaching!

Final comment:

Have been thinking of the Pharisees and scribes in the past. Fariseernerne began as a revival movement and ended up as an opponent of Jesus and the early Christians. What was the reason? More. one of them was that they were wrong in some "little things" that made them hated Jesus pointed this out. It was inter alia was that the Pharisees believed in and lived by "fathers traditions", ie the oral law that came from Moses.

Jesus was opposed to the oral law, and believed that the Pharisees could emphasize love for God and love for people - charity. The oral law just said a great deal about purity, which the Pharisees were serious. Therefore, to help as lepers, women or other "unclean" is not applicable to the Pharisees.

Acts 7:51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! Ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so also I.

How could this be? God always reveals new aspects, but what happens? Than would rather stick to the old and that is unbiblical. Than to submit to God and His word. It is "new" truths we preach that is not accepted in Smyrna Oslo. But check whether it matches the font, it's all I want and set as the norm for all what we're doing and teaching others.

Acts 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the scriptures daily, whether it was just as it was told unto them.

It is something that we never have to get away from or forget. It is to study the scriptures regularly and daily. Regular and structured. Take us all the books in the Bible and all aspects of Christian life, that all truths we stand to hear and accept!

Acts 8:27 p.m. for I held nothing back, but preached unto you the whole counsel of God.
