Jeremiah prophesied favor and act vis a vis my service and prophet service / works!
Jeremiah 1 5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I set thee a prophet unto the nations. 6 And I said, Oh, Lord, Lord! Behold, I can not speak: for I am young. 7 And the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am young! But to all those whom I send you, you shall go, and all that I command you, you shall speak. 8 Be not afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you, declares the Lord. 9 Then the LORD reached out his hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in your mouth. 10 See, I have set you this day over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant. 11 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 'What do you see, Jeremiah? I answered, I see a rod of an almond tree. 12 Then the Lord said to me, You have seen right, for I am watching over my word, so I fulfilled.
The prophet Jeremiah is behind also Lamentations, he served the Lord just before the captivity in Babylon (years approx. 600 BC), therefore his ministry, preaching and message of most comparable to the current spiritual condition as "people of God" is in the process of also be taken away, when I transferred spiritual significance
The prophet Jeremiah experienced and I see many similarities with my service and others who have a prophet service today!
1) The calling of Jeremiah got was when he was in his mother's womb. V. 5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you came out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I set thee a prophet unto the nations.
My own mother told me the prophetic voice, I mean: "That we had to move back to Norway so that I could get good and spiritual impact." We then lived in Denmark, but it was when we came to Norway that I was saved and born again 16 years old, all glory to the one true God and His Son Jesus Christ.
2) God's word should be put in his mouth. v. 7 And the Lord said unto me, Say not, I'm young! But to all those whom I send you, you shall go, and all that I command you, you shall speak. 9 Then the LORD reached out his hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in your mouth.
I've always had a love for God's word that the prophet Jeremiah, this has been a benefit that I have always loved my bible.
3) The Prophet's service was "twofold". One that was "negative" and one that was "posetive". Both sides heard together and were necessary. Jeremiah dual service is more relevant today than ever. We can not just preach that God is good, he is both good and rigorous.
The "negative" part: v. 10a See, I have set you this day over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow.
Notice how similar what I've done here on the blog and the website. I have attacked and exposed humbug and spiritual low point that we see today. I've torn down, until I've built up. This has become one essential part of the costs and hurts.
4) So the "posetive" part: v. 10b See, to build and to plant.
So is the posetive section. Where as the Prophet Jeremais did too, pointed to solutions and opportunities. But first the people of God come level and in a straight position towards his God.
Barack Obama had his message of "change" and "yes, we can"
I shall not kommenterere Barack Obama speech and politics if it could be tempting. But this is the "change" or the Norwegian change is in line with God's word. It is only when there has been a conversion that a real "change" and "yes, we can" fit. Before it's really dead, destruction and demolition match!
God's people will be judged before the world learns font
1. Pet. 4. 17 For it is now time for judgment to begin with God's house, but it begins with us, what will be the end for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 And it is just hard saved, where shall become of the ungodly and the sinner?
It is cowardice and dishonesty to speak against sin in the world sooner than speak against sin in the church!
We see many eksmepler this today and the "believers" think that this is quite allright, but it is not!
What the world's children have not we basically anything with teaching writing, but what the believers and others who profess the name of Jesus, we have something. They shall we t.o.m. judge and expel the church if they do not repent.
1. Cor. 5. 12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? I also do not judge just them that are within? 13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put the evil from you!
My preaching is Apostolic - in opposition to the majority of the Norwegian Christianity! I reveal, warn and exhort the people of God. Children of the World, what are you "big" sin? That they have not accepted Jesus Christ and thus hold God to be a liar! World's children live in darkness, while God's children also live in darkness and large it all when one has a completely misguided understanding of what the Bible teaches is the very most!
How can such. Christianity accept gjengiftede preachers and pastors?
I've prayed about this and I got a clear answer from the Lord. He told me that it was owing to there was so much darkness, confusion, smus, sin and heresy in the hearts of believers, why did they accept such blatant and hesse sins!
I also point out the posetive and way out of it that will drive you wild!
Jeremiah would not only tear down and demolition, but he was also to build and to plant. That's what we do. We have a building preaching when we put such an emphasis on Bible teaching, not least systematic Bible teaching. And we plants, including starting a new church as an alternative to everything else that's out there. Which is not healthy and biblical. Want to join? Then simply contact us to meet up, make veslignet in the Lord Jesus Christ!
Jeremiah's message was true but was too tough expensive for most people, especially the leadership
Unfortunately, history is repeating itself. For the prophet Jeremiah was not easy to carry the message across though he forkynnte was true, right and in accordance with God's will. It is clear that everyone wants to come with what the people want. But God's way is not the same way and will that humans too often. Therefore, pain, costs and requires a divine calling and equipment to carry out the message that God wants out. Therefore, I want to say above all, pray for us and me. Secondly, we need your support.

My service and what we stand for in Smyrna Oslo has much in common with the prophet Jeremiah when we serve God in a solution and frafallstid the church of God !
Here a picture of me Jan Christensen who teaches whole counsel of God to salvation
Jeremiah's mission and ministry
Jeremiah 1 1 The words of Jeremiah the son of Hilkiah , of the priests that were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin . 2 word of the Lord came to him in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign , 3 and in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah , king of Judah , unto the end of Judas king Zedekiah son of Josiah eleventh year , when Jerusalem was abducted in the fifth month. 4 LORD came unto me, saying, 5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew you , and before you came out of the womb I sanctified thee , and I set thee a prophet unto the nations . 6 Then said I , Ah , Lord GOD ! Behold, I can not speak : for I am young . 7 And the Lord said unto me, Say not, I'm young ! But to everyone I send you , you shall go , and whatever I command you , you shall speak. 8 Be not afraid of them , for I am with thee to deliver thee , saith the Lord . 9 Then the LORD put forth his hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said unto me, Behold , I have put my words in your mouth . 10 See , I have set you this day over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down , to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant. 11 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying , What do you see, Jeremiah ? I answered, I see a rod of an almond tree. / 12 Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I am watching over my word , so I fulfill it . 13 And the word of the LORD came unto me the second time , What do you see? I answered, I see a boiling pot , and it is facing from the north . 14 And the Lord said unto me, Out of the north an evil shall break forth on all the inhabitants . 15 For behold , I will call all the families of the kingdoms of the north , saith the Lord , and they shall come and set every one his throne at the entrance gates of Jerusalem, and against all the walls thereof round about, and against all the cities of Judah . 16 And I will utter my judgments on them concerning all their wickedness , because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, and worshiped the works of their hands . 17 And you shall Gird up thy loins , and arise , and speak unto them all that I command thee : be not afraid of them , lest I make thee afraid of them! 18 And behold , I make you this day a fortified city, an iron pillar , and brasen walls against the whole land , against the kings of Judah , its officials , its priests and the people of the country. 19 And they shall fight against thee , but not prevail against thee: for I am with thee, saith the Lord , and will deliver thee .
What was Jeremiah's ministry and mission ? It was twofold. The first part is:
1 ) See , I have set you this day over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down , to destroy and overthrow .
The second part is:
2 ) See , I have set you this day over nations and over kingdoms, to build and to plant.
Seeing that I have much of the same. That is why the word of God:
Rooms . 12th 3 For by the grace given me I say to everyone among you not to think himself more highly than he ought to think , but to think that he think soberly , according as God has allotted to each a measure of faith . 4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: 5 So we, being many one body in Christ, and every man for himself , we are members one of another . 6 Having then gifts differing , according to the grace that is given to us , let us, if we have the gift of prophecy , according to the proportion of faith to , 7, or if we have a service , taking care of the service , or whether one is a teacher, the lesson , 8 or whether to admonish , on exhortation : he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; whoever is the Board , be it with zeal : he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness
I get the feedback that I should only focus on salvation and what all can be united on . But my service is not only directed against the non-believers , but also against the believers that they should as it says in Ephesians 4 14 that we should no longer be babes , tossed and carried about with every wind of doctrine of men , whereby they lie in wait to deceive , 15 but that we are speaking the truth in love, in all respects may grow up into him who is the head , Christ , 16 from whom the whole body, joined together and connected by each band as he gives and grows its growth the body unto the edifying of love, according to the effectual working in the measure every part, maketh .
Or if one is a teacher, the lesson !
I got a call and have a piece of equipment to not only preach to the faithful , but also the faithful. Although I learned that Jeremiah the message is not always tolerated and liked , so it is necessary , just and proper . Jeremiah first part was: "Behold , I have set you this day over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down , to destroy and overthrow ." We read that it was to tear , uproot , destroy and break down. When it was done, then came part two : "Behold , I set you this day over nations and over kingdoms, to build and to plant ." Then the positive and uplifting side when the conditions are right for it. Therefore one must see my ministry , mission and ministry twofold. First, the revealing, reproving and revealing . Secondly, as is the build up , and restoreth strengthens believers .
Should the church be what God intended it is equally important to put away every subject that is unbiblical and can not tolerate being tested by God. As it builds up and restoreth . There is balance, above all , healthy balance .
Why I have made such kontrovsielle aspects of God's word!
Of course I could made as Evangelist Emanuel Minos and everyone else and just joined under the carpet all that hard and have agreed that I last talked to and been very popular among the believers. But is this right? And one must become like everyone else to be accepted and approved ? I think then shown not, I will stand for what God has shown me and revealed to me since youth. Do not add to or subtract, but keep the word of God and do as the Apostle Paul did:
Acts 20th 26 Therefore I testify to you this day that I am clean from the blood , 27 for I held nothing back , but preached unto you the whole counsel of God .
The Apostle Paul preached the whole counsel of God to salvation , and held nothing back . This has been my goal and " goal " since his youth , to keep the things that matter , is biblical and right .
That said, it is sometimes tempting and I also get feedback of approx . 70-80 % who writes to us that I should be like everyone else. Then the process and acceptance coming. But that is why God has anointed , equipped and provided me the service to not be like everyone else that the prophet Jeremiah .
Jer 3:17 p.m. I have not been in the mockers, nor rejoiced; choice of your hand I sat alone : for thou hast filled me with indignation .
Do not know if I can always put it as strongly as Jeremiah , but we Smyrna Oslo is not a part of the development that is within its Christendom where the teaching of the Nicolaitans .
Taking as a brief introduction to what the Nicolaitans learn are:
Nicolaitans teaching is akin to Balaam . Nicolaitans were a sect which they believe was named after a deacon named Nicholas . They taught a false Christian freedom, where one was not so sure things sacrificed to idols and from fornication , and who had a false teaching about the Christian community . This began to make itself felt in Pergamum . It was not just the properties they should have in common, but they should all have in common. They went so far that they learned that they could have shared wives . This led to adultery , a sin against the sixth commandment. Balaam went just out of this when it went to curse Israel , so he gave the advice that you either deceived them with idolatry and fornication .
Nicolaitans believed that " flesh unaffected soul purity. " ( The deeds of the flesh do not Affect the purity of the soul , and consequently have no bearing on salvation . ) They interpreted God's grace as a license to be as happy with sinful habits . Their doctrine advocated that sinful thoughts, mentality , behavior and life ( ie active sin ) , did not affect salvation . Gospel , they meant , offered a technical , theological and "spiritual " salvation , which God declared righteous people , without doing anything to or with them . They further claimed that this " act of God " outside man , did not have to prove in life and conduct. In this way the legal requirements put out of action for those who were saved . They also believed that salvation was contractually bound by God , so that it could never be broken .
From my commentaries Revelation 2 6 But the praise you, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans , so I do.
Whether it was the thing that was no shortage in the fervent social relationship they had still God's word dear . Nicolaitans works is actually the apostle John went against in his first letter . That one can sin with the body but still be a living faith . Short, this is what the deeds of the Nicolaitans is , to sin with the body but could be forgiven and live with the Lord. This is of course heresy when sin is widely accepted both in our lives and churches .
15 Also you have someone with you that sort of thing , those who adhere to the teaching of the Nicolaitans .
The church at Ephesus had revealed works of the Nicolaitans . The church here had both accepted, legemilitert and it had been a teaching that the Bible refers to as leaven out of this. Here Jesus refers to the teaching of Balaam as the same as
Nicolaitans learn. Balaam blessed Israel but also led him to pity them . He got the young men to commit adultery with the Midianites young girls while in session they worshiped their idols. We see that life and learn to conform to God Bless. ( end of quote ) .
Where is the church today , in particular the Pentecostal / charismatic fellowship and churches that we after all have come out of ?
We read in 2 Tim . 4 2 Preach the word , be ready in season and out of season , reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine , but after their own lusts take themselves teachers in droves, because the itching ears , 4 and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and be turned unto fables . 5 But watch thou in all things , endure afflictions , do the work of an evangelist , fulfill your ministry !
We read that in the end time - our time - one should not endure sound doctrine , but after their own lusts take themselves teachers in droves, because the itching ears , and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and be turned unto fables !
It is during this time and under these conditions Smyrna Oslo and I'm set to be a counterweight against this apostasy and deception that spreads more and more about themselves . Therefore, my ministry and the message God has given me seen in relation to the colossal backsliding and the prevailing conditions it is within its church of God become.
Final comment :
Now neither want or I try to copy Jeremiah . But when one reads the book of Jeremiah and Lamentations , you will find an amazing lot alike and suitable match. Jeremiah service God faithfully and sincerely in apostasy and degradation time for the church of God - just as we are today .
But God is with and listening to prayers and promises to answer us when we seek Him with all our heart .
Jer 29:13 And ye shall seek me , and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
When one has such wonderful words and promises, in spite of apostasy and deception that time. It makes me boldly and to overcome . There is no end to the wonderful word of God and it comes against us:
2 Pet. 1 3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and power 4 and thus has given us the greatest and precious promises , that through these ye may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust .
Each is what God has given us? " Has given us the greatest and precious promises ."
Being saved and born again in this world , which is getting this and chew on it , " has given us the greatest and precious promises ."
There is nothing that compares to being saved and preserved in this world for Christ. Therefore it is with great confidence, joy and enthusiasm I still hold out the word of God . Want to also continue no what the Apostle Paul said to his associate and friend Timothy, " Preach answered if it fits or not (it says it in the original text ) , reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine But watch thou in all things , endure afflictions , do the work of an evangelist , fulfill your ministry !
I would and will complete my service , then we need your support in that you join the business. That you pray for us and support us financially. Here is our account in the mail :
