Nr. 640:

Ulf Ekman moves against Catholics and Åge Åleskjær against Pentecostalism !

Pastor Ulf Ekman is moving more and more against the " center " of Christianity , and is about to accompany his son in becoming Catholic or admire them and what they stand for , this is a fact for most people , at least me .

Thoughts about Ulf Ekman moves against Catholics and Åge Åleskjær against Pentecostalism ! Following their trailer still with them? Many , many do not , for several reasons . First I render some conversations I have had with someone in the recent past.

I was very, very welcomed and religious movement that began at ca . 1980s. As luck Christianity is and remains completely unbiblical . But today , 25-30 years later , what?

Met at a lady I know many years back . She has had its ups and downs, and when she describes the Christian life and his life as OKS member coincides very with her ​​experience of OKS .

Someone else I know has been in OKS from its beginnings to the present. Try to talk to these is like talking to a wall . They believe blindly in Åge Åleskjær Although he has changed almost 180 degrees.

In the 80s started these each his own church after going on the Bible to the late Kenneth Hagin and Rhema Bible School . Both preached his happiness religion headquartered in Norway and Oslo Åge Åleskjær . And Ulf Ekman in Uppsala in Sweden not far from Stockholm , the capital city . But today these as far as I understand it far apart. But it must be strange and weird that one has moved so far away from what one stood for before and what you stand for today?

Ulf Ekman approaching Catholics and Åge Åleskjær Pentecostalism . But those who were with them from the beginning has almost been with Phileas Fogg voyage round the world in 80 days only here they have gone to a church that had a race that is unparalleled . But here it is for me too many questions I ask myself. Following these people Christ? No. Those who attend their churches and in the business ? Here the answer is shared when I think there are many who have had a desire to follow Christ and joined in the business, especially in the beginning of the today was as an established business to work for many hens on their tour is actually going from one trench to the next trench .

There are several things to learn here , but which I think is strange . It is that now really Ulf Ekman and Åge Åleskjær learned so many lessons large that it feels strange and incomprehensible . Not least that someone can have confidence in them by their change and partly ditch drive .

So big change - yet none of them found the truth of God's word !

What I experience with both Ulf Ekman and Åge Åleskjær , it is that they go from trench to trench . We read about these in the word of God :

2 Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth .

And not only that, they are stale minds word of God says about these :

2 Timothy 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses , so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith .

I bring to end an article I wrote about Jannes and Jambres perfect for today's Pentecostals and charismatics . As it has been sadly there soon everything is permitted except to take God's word as it stands . Follow it carefully and experience of the power of a surrendered and obedient life :

Jannes and Jambres !

2 Tim.3.1 . But know this, that in the last days will come perilous times. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves , covetous , boasters , proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful , unholy , 3 unloving , untrustworthy , false accusers , incontinent , fierce , despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong , puffed up, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God , 5 having a form of godliness, but denying the power - and they turn away from . 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth . 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses , so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith . 9 However , they should not get more progress : for their folly shall be manifest to all, as theirs also was .

We are accustomed to think that opposition to the gospel are those who oppose and speak against us ! By all means , there's that too. But in the end times will a lot of resistance against the Gospel and the faithful be as Jannes and Jambres .

" As Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses , so are these men also accepted the truth , men of corrupt mind and counterfeit faith, but they will not get very far , for their folly will be easy for anyone to reveal (which will compare their work with the Word of God ) , as it was also for these two men . " (2 Timothy 3:8-9 RSV )

Jannes and Jambres are mentioned only once in the Bible, of the Apostle Paul in 2 Tim . They are not identified by name in the Old Testament, with the rabbinic tradition about Jannes and Jambres , they were among the magicians who opposed Moses and Aaron at the time of Israel out of Egypt occurred .

Paul wrote under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit on this important topic also in accordance with Jewish tradition and teaching GT . Jannes and Jambres had apparently " miraculous " powers, but unlike Moses and Aaron who were empowered by God. Was Pharaoh's magicians dishonest , arrogant , sarcastic and demonic .


" Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh . And did as the LORD commanded : and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and his servants , and it became a serpent. Then Pharaoh summoned the wise men and the sorcerers , and they also , the magicians of Egypt did so same with their secret arts . for every man threw down his rod , and they became serpents . But Aaron's rod swallowed up the other rods. "( Genesis 7:10-12 RSV )


" Moses and Aaron did as the Lord had commanded , in the sight of Pharaoh and the sight of his servants , he lifted up the rod and struck the water that was in the Nile , and all the water that was in the Nile turned to blood . And the fish in the Nile died , and Nile was corrupted , so that the Egyptians could not drink water from the Nile , and there was blood throughout Egypt. But the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments so Pharaoh's heart remained hardened , and he would not listen to them , as the Lord had said. "( Genesis 7:20-22 RSV )


" So Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt , and the frogs came up and covered the land of Egypt . But the magicians did so with their enchantments , and brought up frogs on the Egyptians . " ( Genesis 8:6-7 RSV )

Mosquitoes - and diviners who admitted defeat

" Then the Lord said to Moses," Say to Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the earth , that it may become lice throughout all Egypt. " And they did so ; Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod , and smote the dust of the earth , and there came mosquitoes to humans and animals, all the dust of the earth became lice throughout all Egypt. Wizards tried with their enchantments to bring forth gnats, but they could not. So it was mosquitoes on man and beast . And the magicians said to Pharaoh, " This is the finger of God . " ( Genesis 8:16-19 RSV )

When we read this story as it will teach us that these were opponents of God in a very different way . They did not deny miracles , but the Lord knew Moses witnessed both neglecting him by imitating him.

Do not see the resemblance to this with a lot going on today?

There are many who believe in God, but they are not followers of Jesus and the word of God ! The entire PinseKaresmatiske " family " is about to become as Jannes and Jambres .

Listen to what God's Word says in 1 Sam.15 . 22 And Samuel said , Hath the LORD as as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice , and to heed better than the fat of rams 23 For rebellion is better than the sin of witchcraft , and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry . Because you have rejected the word of the Lord , he has rejected you, then you should not be king.

Disobedience and rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft . These here , Jannes and Jambres were sorcerers . But it is also " Christians " who do not follow the word of God and Jesus , but believe in signs, wonders and miracles. Obedience is crucial , not belief below.

Is it so strange that this takes up Paul when he here mentions what should be in the end times that I think we live in the midst ?

Jamie did not deny Moses and what he did directly, but indirectly. Moses was called by God and was a successor to the Lord's commands . Jannes and Jambres were either known or lived by God's decrees .

Here I see great similarities what happens in Christianity throughout the Western world.

One believes in almost all word of God , but one is not a follower of Jesus in all areas of their lives. Jannes and Jambres did not deny miracles and wonders. Will read Hebr.13 . 18 b and willing to live in all things . In all the pieces ? Yes, without it , we deceive before or since !

Jesus said in Matt.16 . 24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If anyone come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake shall find it. 26 For what shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world , and lose his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

What helps to have a nationwide TV channel when not following the word of God ? When the driver one with the sin of witchcraft word of God says . What helps to have the largest independent congregation with a reject 90 % of the word of God and says it does not apply to us today? Nothing ! It would be far better both for themselves and everyone else that they had been removed from Christian service .

God's word says both directly and indirectly. Follow Jesus and God's word 100 % or let the weather ! The Lord will have successors, to proclaim and live Christ.

Mark 16 15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature ! 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe : In my name they will cast out demons , they will speak with tongues , 18 they shall take up serpents and if they drink anything poisonous, it shall not hurt them on the sick they put their hands , and they shall recover . 19 Then the Lord Jesus , after he had spoken to them, up into heaven , and sat down at the right hand of God . 20 And they went forth and preached everywhere , the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following .

This is our task , but the Lord would not have followers and admirers , but followers of him. By Gideon's men were only a fraction as he could win with victory .

All of this is written for our learning , but the story in the Bible and in the secular world it is very difficult for us to learn from ? We humans are and remain corrupt in ourselves , why do we need Jesus. Not only as our Savior but also as Lord .

Kol.2.6 . As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord , so walk ye in him: 7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith , as ye have been taught , abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8 See to it that there be none to make you his prey through philosophy and vain deceit , after the tradition of men , after the rudiments of the world , and not after Christ. 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily , 10 And ye are complete in him , who is the head of all principality and power: 11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made ​​without hands, in the putting off of the flesh body , by the circumcision of Christ , 12 and I was buried with him in baptism , and in her was I and raised with him through faith in the power of God , who hath raised him from the dead.

We encounter the same with Jesus and the rich young man. He had done everything and was well-situated . But Jesus had this minor importance. We can not expect to be able to serve the Lord if we are not willing to sacrifice everything for him. Not just some , but all . We can not have any dark areas of life. I sacrificed a bright football career for the Lord, but it was worth it . Have gotten so much more again . The wife , children , home, church , ministry and even more waiting ; eternal glory with God , if I am faithful until the end. This is for everyone!

Matt.19 . 27 Peter answered him , Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee : what shall we get? 28 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you who have followed me, in the regeneration , when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones , judging the twelve tribes of Israel . 29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and inherit eternal life . 30 But many that are first shall be last and the last first . Have I considered all aspects of the gospel? Or should you be tricked by Jannes and Jambres delusion being kept alive today, not least by the PinseKaresmatiske Christianity that we see today ! Delusion is to believe in but not simultaneously be a follower of Jesus .
