No. 1479: Norwegian Christianity has really run itself straight in the "ditch"!

No. 1479:
Norwegian Christianity has really run itself straight in the "ditch"! 
Here are my beloved wife Berit depicted where presumption respectively Paul and his traveling companions on 276 souls came rescued ashore after ship sinking without past St. Paul on Malta (Acts 27 37 We were two hundred and seventy-six souls on the ship) . 

In many ways, the Norwegian Christianity as a boat son's play. 
The caves are so large, surf so intense, the water so froth that it is only a tidspørsmål before the boat either taking in too much water or it runs on a cutting and foundering.
Only thing that can save this is total capitulation, we have made mistakes and allowed sin, the world and the flesh to govern us and get the upper hand!
It's really too much too far, there is a leadership or a captain who has not fanatical, and know what needs to. This captain's leadership in the various congregations where remarriage among preachers, heresy and a defender even pity as it is not homosexuality. As we have seen in recent days by several who'll do anything to keep the Christian people together.
Where even sin is defended, or tacitly accepted, just not the ship is going down!
Should wished situation testified to a solution, but actually do not think there is any solution in sight for the Norwegian Christianity than that everything goes doll!
Here I do not know where I really start. But that is not to deny that a man Hans Nielsen Hauge which in my eyes is the biggest and most important reformer in Norway. Had not known Christian people again I'm convinced!
Hans Nielsen Hauge was a man of battle, while lynede plotted, spiritual and lived a clean life and preaching the word of God!
Do not stop too much with Hauge here, but it is the same Spirit of fervor, Passion. and surrender that is totally scarce in today's Christian Norway.
Leadership that will set an example, is actually the most unfit and unable to see the difference between the holy and profane, between right and wrong, and light and dark!
What can we expect to happen in the future? In many ways, we find many spiritual truths in God's word, hidden supervising onsite. Will take me stories in Acts 27-28 where the apostle Paul was involved in a shipwreck.
And those stranded on the island of Malta.
Acts 27. 1. And when it was determined that we should sail away to Italy, they delivered the both Paul and certain other prisoners to a centurion named Julius at the imperial hærdeling. 2 We went aboard a ship from Adramyttium that was about to sail to places along the Asian country, and then went we out; Aristarchus, a Macedonian from Thessalonica, was with us. 3 And the next day we landed at Sidon, and Julius, in kindness to Paul, allowed him to go to his friends and enjoy their care. 4 From there ascended we further and sailed under Cyprus, because the wind was against, 5 and after that we had sailed across the sea by Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came to Myra in Lycia. 6 Where did the captain a ship of Alexandria, who were to Italy, and he brought us aboard it. 7 For many days did it now scarce sailing, and we won with difficulty forward to Knidus; when the wind was contrary, we held down under Crete by Salmone, 8 and it was as far as we got there past and reached a place called Fair Havens, nearly a city Lase. 9 Now when much time had passed and it was already dangerous to travel on the sea, because the fast was, Paul admonished them, saying 10 Husbands I see that the voyage will be a daring and cause great damage, not only of the cargo and the ship, but also of our lives. 11 Nevertheless the centurion believed the master and skipper than to what Paul said.12 And when the port was convenient at all for winter rentals, became the majority agreed that they should go forth thence, they perhaps could not succeed and take winter harbor in Phoenix, a harbor of Crete, facing west and northwest. 13 And when it blew softly wind, thinking that they had obtained their purpose; they weighed anchor and sailed close by Crete. 14 But not long after came a whirlwind called eurakylon, swept down from the island; 15 when the ship was caught and could not bear up into the wind, we it let her drive. 16 And running under a small island called Klauda, and it was with difficulty that we got rock the boat; 17 when they had taken it on board, they seized the relief and struck silent about the ship. And when they were afraid to drive down the Syrten, strake sail, and so were driven. 18 When we now suffered very bad weather, threw the morrow charge overboard, 19 and on the third day we threw with his own hands tackling of the ship. 20 When neither sun nor stars let themselves see for several days, and a very storm was upon us, it was henceforth all hope of rescue. 21 And when they had not been fed for a long time, Paul stood forth in the midst, and said, Sirs, In should have sounded my advice and do not sail from Crete, had spared you for this venture and this injury. 22 And now I beseech you, be of good cheer; for no soul among you shall perish, but only the ship. 23 For this night there stood by me an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve, saying: 24 Fear not, Paul you should stand before Caesar, and lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee, to gift. 25 Wherefore be of good courage, Sirs, for I put my trust in God that it should be so that it is said to me. 26 But we must be on a certain island. 27 Then now the fourteenth night came, while we remained adrift in the Adriatic Sea, realized about midnight the sailors that the bar near the shore. 28 And when they sounded, and found it twenty fathoms; but when they had gone a little further, they sounded again, they found fifteen fathoms; 29 Then fearing that they might perhaps encounter rocks, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and wished for the day become. 30 sailors were seeking to escape from the ship and lowered the boat into the sea, as they pretended that they would put out anchors from the prow; 31 Paul said to the centurion and the soldiers, Unless these aboard the ship, ye can not be saved. 32 Then the soldiers cut off the ropes of the boat and let it fall. 33 And when it suffered the day, bathroom Paul all take birth to him, and he said: This is now the fourteenth day that ye wait and refrain from eating and not taking anything for you. 34 Therefore I beg you, take food for you; this belongs to your rescue; for there shall not a hair of your head on any among you. 35 When he had said this, he took bread, gave thanks to God before all and broke it and began to eat 36 when they were all good cheer and took food for themselves too. 37 We were two hundred and seventy-six souls on the ship. 38 And when they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship by throwing the wheat into the sea.39 And when it was day, they knew not the land: but they discovered a certain creek with a shore; where they decided to run the ship if it were possible. 40 They cut the anchors and left them in the sea, and the same time untied the ropes that held the rudders with; and hoisted the mainsail to the wind, and made toward shore. 41 But they ran into a reason that had deep sea on both sides; Here they encountered with the ship gone, airship took himself firmly and stood motionless, but stern hinder part was broken off the surf. 42 soldiers' counsel was to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim out, and escape 43 but the centurion, which would save Paul, kept them from their counsel, and commanded that those who could swim, should first throw himself out and come ashore, 44 and then the others, partly on planks, partly on pieces of the ship. And on this show went there so that all rescued him ashore.
28. 1. When we had now escaped, we learned that the island was called Malta.
Here we see that the Apostle Paul as a prisoner to be brought to Rome in today's Italy. The journey started with good weather and everything looked bright, well and good!This started out as a good journey, ended later in a disaster!
In many ways, so we can say that both Christianity and all the Reformation today ended in a disaster. They have wrecked the faith when one will not longer conform to God's word, and have thrown the conscience of themselves and follow only their own belly and his own desires.
1 Tim. 1. 18 This commandment I commit unto thee, my son Timothy, according to the earlier prophetic words of thee, that thou by them will fight the good fight, 19 having faith and a good conscience; which some having thrust away shipwreck concerning their faith; 20 whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to do it to mock.
They let out from a long trip to Italy, in the room or as it is called today Rome. But the journey posed many problems, and it all ended in a shipwreck. But from what shipwreck, then salvaged themselves all the wreckage and what was left of the ship.
So will it happen to God's church, it will suffer a shipwreck! Apostasy has come too far, there is no hope of rescue!
Acts 27. 20 When neither sun nor stars let themselves see for several days, and a very storm was upon us, it was henceforth all hope of rescue.
So it is with God's church in Norway, all hope of rescue is past. Last nail in the coffin is set. Not only accept than remarriage and much else, but even gays and lesbians to get married. All hope of rescue is past!
But allikvel, it is based on we who are believers within its apostate Christendom. God will do something new and big.
Acts 27. 43 but the centurion, which would save Paul, kept them from their counsel, and commanded that those who could swim, should first throw himself out and come ashore, 44 and then the others, partly on planks, partly on pieces of the ship . And on this show went there so that all rescued him ashore.
They would cling to "partly on planks, partly on pieces of the ship!"
God does something new, out of a ship that has shipwrecked!
Isaiah 43. 18 Remember not remember the former things; do not dwell on the past! 19 Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall not Oplev it? Yes, I will make a way in the desert and streams in the wilderness. 20 The wild animals, jackals and ostriches, will honor me because I give waters in the wilderness, rivers in the desert, my people, my chosen, can drink. 21 The people I formed for myself, will proclaim my praise.
Did not remember the misery in today's church.
Stand up and be with the new as he does!
The Lord Himself says: "Behold, I do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall not Oplev it. The people I formed for myself, will proclaim my praise. "
God has allowed this to shape and form us. We will proclaim his price!
