Picture of "Apostle" and "Pastor" Jan Kaare Hanvold who has been reprinted several times as a believer. Is this so bad? Is not homosexuality and killing worse?
But Satan also operates today, not least in the church of God, but how?
He does not enter himself, then he had been revealed right away.
An article I wrote several years ago about this topic:
Pastor and Apostle Jan Aage Torp in Oslo Church and all other remarried as a Christian and still are preachers are our time King Uzziah as was a leper!
The false teacher Jan Aage Torp
2. Chron. 26. 1. And all the people of Judah took and did Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, to the king in his father Amaziah. 2 He did Eloth a real city and took it back to Judah, after the king had put himself to sleep with his fathers. 3 Uzziah was sixteen years old when he became king, and reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem, his mother's name was Jecholiah from Jerusalem. 4 He did what was right in the eyes, according to all that his father Amaziah had done. 5 And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding of God's call, and that he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper. 6 He went out and fought against the Philistines and broke down the wall of Gath and Jabne and Ashdod, and he built cities in Ashdod and other places in the land of the Philistines. 7 And God helped him against the Philistines, and against the Arabs who lived in Gur Baal and against me'unittene. 8 And the Ammonites gave gifts to Uzziah, and his name spread to Egypt, for he was exceedingly powerful. 9 Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem at the Corner Gate and at the Valley Gate and at the angle, thus making these places firm and strong. / 10 He also built towers in the desert and struck out many cisterns, for he had much livestock in the lowlands and on høisletten, and he had farmers and husbandmen in the mountains and the oceans, for agriculture lay him on the heart. 11 Uzziah had an army capable of war, who went into battle in herds, signed and numbered by the state printer Jeiel and supervisory man Maaseiah, under the direction of Hananiah, one of the king's princes. 12 Two thousand and six hundred was the whole number of the mighty men who were family heads, 13 and under them was a krigshær of three hundred and seven thousand and five hundred men, who made war with mighty power and to help the king against the enemy. 14 The whole army of Uzziah prepared with shields and spears and helmets and breastplates, and bows and sling stones. 15 In Jerusalem he made directed-war machines, which should be set up on the towers and Murhjørnet to shoot arrows and great stones. And his name spread far and wide, for he was marvelously helped, till he became strong. 16 But when he was strong, he was overconfident in his heart, that he sinned himself, he disobeyed the Lord their God, and went into the temple to burn incense on the altar of incense. 17 Azariah the priest went in after him and with him eighty priests of Jehovah, brave men. 18 They came up against King Uzziah and said to him: It is not for you, Uzziah, to burn incense to the Lord, but only the priests, Aaron's sons, who are consecrated to it. Go out of the sanctuary! For you have been disobedient, and it becomes thee not to honor the Lord God. 19 Then Uzziah was angry. He held a censer in his hand and tried just about to burn incense, but when his anger was kindled against the priests, the leprosy in his forehead, as he stood in front of priests in the house at the altar of incense. 20 And Azariah the chief priest and all the priests turned against him, they saw that he was leprous in his forehead. Then they drove him out from thence, and even he himself hasted to go out, because the LORD had smitten him. 21 Uzziah the king was a leper to the day of his death, and he lived in a house for himself as a leper, for he was excluded from the house. His son Jotham commissioned the king's house, judging the people. 22 Now the rest of the acts of Uzziah, in both his first and in his later days, the prophet Isaiah, Amos' son, written op. / 23 And Uzziah lay down to rest with his fathers, and they buried him with his fathers in the burial place which belonged to the kings, for they said: He is a leper. And Jotham his son reigned in his stead.
Espen Ottosen: Should resign as pastor
One of the very few in Christendom who have dared to question both with Pastor Torp's real and personal lifestyle is Espen Ottosen, information director of the Norwegian Lutheran Mission. In several posts on our debate's value justifies why he Torp no longer be able to function as a pastor:
I have stated on twitter that I think it is regrettable that Jan-Aage Torp not stop as pastor. The reason is not only the story that his son come forward in the current issue of A Magazine. My reasoning is more comprehensive. Here are a few words.
Jan-Aage Torp is pastor. The term apostle is used for his service. Whatever it is natural to focus on what Paul sets a requirement for an overseer. Here are some key verses from 1 Timothy 3.2 to 7:
"Now the overseer must be above reproach, husband of one wife, sober, calm, dignified, hospitable, able to teach others, no drunkard, not violent but gentle, not contrary to the desire of money. He must manage his house well and be obedient children of all virtue. But he who does not know how to manage his own household, how can he care for God's church? He must not be a new convert, lest he be puffed up and fall under the devil's verdict. He also must have good testimony from those who are outside, lest he should be put to shame and be caught in the devil's snare. "
These words present the great ideals. Let me first clarify that I (obviously) does not mean that a Christian leader to be perfect. We are all sinners. The Bible says fortunately much that God can use weak and erring people. At the same time, I believe that the words of Paul represents a measure of relevance and importance. We have no right to cancel the meaning of these words because no one is flawless. A Christian leader is dependent on trust. Therefore there must be a connection between life and teachings.
In the case of Jan-Aage Torp, I believe that he has weakened his confidence in a fundamental way, particularly in recent years. I think it is uncomfortable to hold. But I think actually it's even harder to be completely silent - for through his behavior, he has discredited the whole Christian church in Norway.
The last example is the story that his son now says. It is simply appalling, even if I take into account that the media does not give a very balanced presentation, although Torp has had the opportunity to give a accordingly. Many Christian leaders have found that their children have moved away from the faith. Some would argue that that in itself disqualifies a pastor. I do not think so. Also Pastor children must be able to choose their own faith. But the history of Anders Torp is very special, because his son today has broken all contact with his father. It weakens the confidence course at Torp.
Even more serious is this page Torp today admits that the theology he made sure that his son was faced with was unhealthy. To some extent it is good that Torp takes self-criticism. The only problem is that there are limits to how many times a person may complain strongly their misjudgments - and still keep the trust. Torp prophesied bloodbath during the Olympics in Athens, which he later apologized. In today's articles sorry he both contact with the Danish "Father of the House" and "åndeutdrivere" from Zambia. It is then reasonable to ask whether Torp has shown sufficient spiritual discretion. I do not think so. In addition, I think a lot of the material contained on the website of the Oslo Church and blog of Jan-Aage Torp shows that Torp still markets a radical charismatic. It is very problematic.
A final issue is that Jan-Aage Torp is married again. This is a difficult point to comment - because it concerns the private life of Torp. At the same time, I think it's unreasonable to think that all topics concerning marital status shall be stamped as irrelevant. Paul emphasizes, after all these questions in 1 Timothy.
There are probably well aware that my basic attitude is that remarriage is wrong. This justifies my Matt from 19.3 to 10 and some other Bible verses. At the same time, I think the question is difficult. Many conservative Christians believe remarriage in some situations may be right. I respect that. But I do think that certain Christian leaders should refrain from remarriage - in part because Paul wrote that a leader should be "a woman's man."
Finally, the text of 1 Timothy 3, Paul writes that the overseer "have good testimony from those outside." It must of course not be construed as a Christian leader must be popular and loved. On the contrary, it says a lot in the Bible that those who preach God's word of truth and justice, must be prepared for both the opposition, persecution and slander. Paul also believes therefore that it matters how Christian leaders are perceived by people outside the church. Also at this point, I think Torp fall short. He does not give a good testimony by marrying very soon after the divorce with a woman who is more than twenty years younger than himself.
This is a difficult subject. I find it hard to be balanced, accurate and respectful (to Jan-Aage Torp, which undoubtedly is a very difficult situation and deserve care and intercession). But here was a brief explanation that I mean after all, Pastor Torp should quit as pastor. (End of quote).
I struck out today Pastor January Aage Torp to be abused by him, but I live well with. He said among other things. a that I was unkind and ugly when I could speak like that about him and about Evangelist Emanuel Minos.
Emanuel Minos, a gateway for demons
When Emanuel Minos repeatedly in bad faith will open up for these wolves in sheep's clothing as Jan Aage Torp, Jan Hanvold and other gjengiftede preachers, he is a gateway for demons. The demons are not even out, but they have their henchmen, who live in rebellion to God's word and God's will.
Uzziah was 16 years old when he became king - and he was king for 52 years. Here we meet a godly man, who sought God and did what was right in the eyes of the Lord. He was raised in a "Christian home" and took good care of their childhood and the legacy of the home. The people loved Uzziah, because no one had done so much good for Israel since King Solomon.
King Uzziah had thus a very good start to his race. He had a good "input". But how was the end of his journey? It was the end we should heed. Yes, when Uzziah was at its most powerful, something happens.
Why did Uzziah?
1) Uzziah began to exalt themselves. He forgot that real progress has more to do with who we are than what we do. He forgot that it was God who had helped him to the power and glory that he had achieved.
2) He had not taken the time to build character in their lives. His character was in no way compared to what he had accomplished. It is important to build a strong character of God before you step out in service to God. If not then it will sooner or later be a character flaw that is visible to all ...
3) Pride came into his life. Pride always comes before a fall. Uzziah could not stand success. But what is pride?
- Pride is the "mother of all sin" (Lester Sumrall)
- Pride is a spiritual cancer. It eats up the opportunities to love and spiritual fruit can float.
- Pride is selfish. It's always the ego at the center. ("I have the right ...")
- Pride is arrogance. It is to exalt themselves. One would expect privileges, a desire to be noticed and become popular.
- Pride is anger. One can not bear reproof, but reacts with anger.
In verse 19 we see that Uzziah react with anger - typical pride ...
We all need someone corrects us / exhorts us. Ask yourself: How do I receive admonition and correction from other people? The way you receive correction, will determine how you end your run!
Uzziah was a leper, and he remained a leper for life. He was first called king, but ended up being known as leprosy. It was no longer speaking about what he did in the beginning. What matters is how you finish the race!
This man had ascended the throne at the age of sixteen, destined to become one of the greatest kings of Judah. He received advice from the prophet Zechariah. He received a vision from the Lord. He was mightily blessed by God.
The Bible says that Uzziah sought the Lord - and God made him prosper and become strong: "God helped him ...." (2 Chronicles 26:7). ".... His name spread far and wide, for he was helped on the way, and he had great power." (Verse 15).
Besides Solomon, Uzziah had the best reputation of all the kings of Judah. He was anointed by God. He began a revival in the land, tore down the idols and walking according to God's word. When this brave king drove his chariot through the streets, he was shown honor and respect. He received the gifts and tributes from around the world.
But, Scripture says: ".... as he was strong, he was overconfident in his heart, to his own destruction. He transgressed against the LORD their God, and went into the temple to burn incense on the altar of incense." (Verse 16).
Pride overcame this man. He wanted to be a priest in addition to the king! In disobedience, Uzziah entered the temple and began to wave incense before the altar. He received a rebuke for this - and when he pointed an angry finger in response, began his hand immediately to fade. It suddenly became a leper. Uzziah had to be thrown out of the temple of God!
Oh, what a shame! One of the largest, richest kings of Judah's history had to be isolated. He was taken to a house where he spent the rest of his days as a leper: "Since King Uzziah a leper to his death. He lived in a house for himself as a leper, for he was excluded from the house ... . " (2 Chron. 26:21).
Uzziah died in isolation - cut off from any blessing from God!
When this once-great man died, amounts have gathered around him. His death would have been an honor to God. Instead, he died as an almost unknown man, his body eaten by leprosy. Uzziah missed his destiny!
Pastor and Apostle January Aage Torp in Oslo Church and all other gjengiftede as a Christian and still are preachers of our time King Uzziah was a leper!
God's Word is very clear, all that is gjengiftede that believers should not be Pastors or Apostles as Jan Aage Torp, Jan Hanvold and many of them are. If they had sat down on the last bench and been like him, we read about in Luke, the Gospel should I set the time, when there had been a matter between him and God.
Luke 18 9 He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and despised others: 10 Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed thus: God! I thank you because I am not like other people: thieves, unjust, adulterers, or, as this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week, I give tithes of all my income. 13 And the publican stood afar off, would not even lift his eyes toward heaven, but smote his breast and said: God! be my sins gracious! 14 I say unto you, This was justified down to his house rather than the other: for every one himself exalted, to be abased, and it humbles himself shall be exalted.
But this raises a itself both Apostles, Pastors, TV-founders and I do not know what. Pride and haughtiness are. They make themselves so humble and so innocent, only they are the flesh and the tank will for into the new life, they do anything. False humility calls the Bible, not for anything else.
King Uzziah was a leper
King Uzziah was a leper, and these people are already lepers and will spread its leprosy wherever they are, therefore, scripture says that we will not even be pointed at with these.
1 Corinthians 5:11 but what I wrote to you was that I should not have sexual relations with anyone called a brother and an adulterer or havesyk or an idolater or a railer, or a drunkard, or robber, so I do not even eat with him.
We shall in no way take part in their evil deeds, if we do we are an accomplice. The fact that Emanuel Minos, and many others support leprous people who are spiritually wolves in sheep's clothing, I think that's bad! Yes direct sickening and disgusting.
What is the solution?
The solution is simple. Distances you from those who do not live as the word says. And stick to those who live and learn right. This is and remains the solution. All we need God's grace when we all fall short, but there are still rules in the word of God and the spiritual life with Jesus and the church that we must and will relate to.
Remarriage of preachers make them out of the question to the service as pastor and teacher
When we read the Pastoral letters that Paul teaches on this and other sites it becomes clear that gjengiftede preachers as believers is unfit for duty. Just like Kon Uzziah was unfit to perform the service that the Levites would do, all who choose to remarry after a divorce. This is not what I or you think, but spiritual truths and this is also a spiritual law. Allows us gjengiftede preachers, we can only set the door wide open for Satan. Have we given him the little finger as he takes the whole hand, make you sure?
Ezra fik all gjengiftede to divorce - it is the solution today also
Ezra 10 10 Then Ezra the priest stood up and said to them: I have borne you, the transgressed and taken strange wives, and thus has increased in Israel's sake. 11 Therefore confess it now, for the Lord God of your fathers and do His will! Separate yourselves from the other people in this country and from the foreign women! 12 Then answered all the people, saying with a loud voice: Yes, as you said, then we ought to do. 13 But the people are numerous, and it is now rainy season, so we are not able to stand out here, and this is a work that can not be done in a day or two, for there are many of us who have sinned in this case. 14 Therefore let our leaders stand up for all the people, and let all those in our cities which have taken strange wives, meeting at scheduled times with the elders and judges of each town, until we have turned our God's fierce anger away from us, and this matter is settled. 15 Only Jonathan son of Asahel and Jahseja, Tikva son, put him against this, and Meshullam and Levite Sabbetai supported them. 16 The exiles did then as I said was, and chose the priest Ezra and some men who were heads of their families, who were all mentioned by name, and they came together on the first day of the tenth month to investigate the matter, 17 and they were finished with all the men who had taken strange wives, to the first day of the first month. 18 Among the priests' sons, they found someone who had taken strange wives: it was, of Joshua, Josadaks son's sons and his brothers: Maaseiah and Eliezer and Jarib and Gedaliah, 19 they gave their hand that they would distinguish themselves from their wives and sacrifice a ram from the flock as a guilt offering for the sake they had pådradd himself.
Notice the wording of verse 19: "For the sake they had pådradd himself."
The guilt they had pådradd itself, that is exactly what Pastor January Aage Torp. Pastor January Hanvold and all others who are separated as a believer and then later as a believer marry. They incur guilt yourself and everyone else who gets in their vicinity and who stands with them in any way. They apply themselves also to blame and are involved with them in their evil deeds, as it is by God's word teaches. To get married after a breakup, it's exclusive if one wishes, and will be an Apostle, Prophet, or indeed a trusted servant of the Lord or the servant.
Jacob 3 1. My brothers! Not many of you become teachers, since I know that we will also heavier sentence!
2. Joh. b. 10 If anyone comes to you and do not lead this doctrine, then do not take him into your house and offer him welcome! 11 for the one who offers him welcome, being an accomplice with him in his evil deeds.
Luke 16 18 Whoever separates himself from his wife and marries another woman, he commits adultery, and whoever marries a woman divorced from her husband committeth adultery.
1. Kor. 7. 10 The married I command, yet not I but the Lord, that a wife should not separate herself from her husband, 11 but she is separated from him, as she remain unmarried or be reconciled herself with her husband - and that a man does not to separate himself from his wife.
1. Tim. 5. 8 But if any provide not for his own, and most of his household, he hath denied the faith and is worse than an infidel.
Eph. 5. 28 Then the men ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
