No. 1535:
Jan Kåre Christensen - a Joseph 3900 years after he lived and experienced fraud of his brothers and suffered injustice, but this was God's way to save the "world"!
The brothers of Joseph came to Egypt to buy grain. They thought he was dead and did not recognize Joseph. After some conflicts, Joseph made himself known to his brothers, and he forgave them. After this, all the brothers moved with Jacob and the rest of the family to Egypt.
Joseph emphasized to be loyal, but it did not make Potiphar's wife. We read: "His lord's wife began to lift his eyes to Joseph, saying," Stay with me. "" (Genesis 39: 7) Did Joseph feel tempted to care for this pagan woman's cheeky protest?
That "Pastor" Torp gave up to marry again, so we read that Potiphar's wife lied and became furious at Joseph. It is the same hatred and sin that lives in Torp's heart, as it lived in Potifar's wife's heart and mind, a picture of.

I have the way Joseph has by the grace of God managed to keep my "path" pure on the moral as opposed to Jan Aage Torp who lives after the word of God in the face of being reprisaled as a believer and so-called Pastor. 
The scripture says very clearly that a shepherd / pastor should be a woman's husband, not two as Torp is!
That no more Christians stand up and defend me, I consider to be the same kind of deceit that Joseph was exposed to by his brothers. He was also let down, sold and betrayed by his brothers.
That's how I get there as I have to stand almost alone in this violent and important struggle for the Christian marriage.
Priest and debate Øivind Benestad stands for the struggle for the Christian marriage, but he is totally absent to support me for the real struggle. That's what and how believers relate to the word of God and the Christian marriage! Not how the children of the world - they do not believe - live and practice their lives. Here we see the fraud that I am and are exposed to!
Joseph's brothers sold him for some bad money!
Genesis 37. 18 They saw him far away, and before he came near to them, they advised to kill him. 19 They said among themselves, Behold, this dreamer comes! 20 Come now, let's kill him and throw him down in one of the wells here, and then we will say, A wild animal has one up. Then we'll see what it gets from his dreams. 21 When Reuben heard this, he would release him out of their hands, saying, "Let's not kill him!" 22 And he said unto them, Do not pour blood, cast him into this well in the wilderness, but lay not his hand upon him; for he would deliver him out of their hand, and bring him back to his father. 23 And when Joseph came to his brethren, they clothed him with his robe, the side of the garment which he had. 24 And they threw him down into the well; But the well was empty, there was no water in it. 25 Then they sat down for a meal; And when they looked up, they saw a journey of Ishmaelites coming from Gilead, and their camels had spices and balm and ladanum; They were on their way with this down to Egypt. / 26 Then Judah said to his brothers, "What does it mean that we hit a brother killed and conceal the murder? 27 Come and let us sell him to the Ishmaelites, but let us not lay hold on him, he is our own fleshly brother. And his brothers did as he said. 28 And when the Midianite merchants passed by, Joseph went up from the well, and they sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites for twenty shekels of silver; And the Ishmaelites took Joseph into Egypt.
Joseph was stuck - but God had a plan and purpose all the same!
Thus I am convinced that God has a wonderful and wonderful plan to convey the message of what the Bible says about the Christian marriage. It's lifelong and it's only death that makes a new marriage possible!
Fraud of my Christian brothers and sisters who do not stand up and behind me, it is the same as Joseph experienced. But God's ways are greater and more glorious than our ways. Therefore, I know that there is one who stands behind and by my side, if no one else does. It is God, for he was with Joseph, so he is with me. It is the same God we belong and serve, therefore the gospel and the Christian message come forth, if no one else is with!
Sooner or later, those who today do not want to know what God's Word says must bend!
Joseph's brothers eventually became humiliated and bowed down!
Now I do not have the goal that somebody should bow to me, but that they should bow down to the word of God. Repentance is a shame for believers and against God's word!
But Joseph's brothers bowed to the end. Such I am convinced will happen in my case, that everyone must bow and acknowledge what God's Word says about the Christian marriage!
The story where Joseph's brothers bowed to him are very instructive. As it turns out that sooner or later our deceit and our sin will find and reach us.
Genesis 45. Joseph could no longer put a bond on all those who stood with him; He cried out, let every man go out of me! And there was no presence when Joseph made known to his brothers. 2 And he burst in cry, and cried so much that the Egyptians heard it, and they heard it in the house of Pharaoh. 3 And Joseph said unto his brethren, I am Joseph, is my father alive? But his brothers could not answer him, so horrified they stood before him. 4 Then Joseph said to his brothers, Dear, come here to me! Then they went to him; And he said, "I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold to Egypt." 5 But do not worry now and do not make sure you sold me here! To keep you alive, God has sent me here beforehand; 6 For now there has been famine in the country for two years, and yet it will be five years when neither plows nor harvests. 7 But God has sent me in advance for you, because he would give you a rest on the earth, and because he would keep you alive, so that it became a great salvation. 8 Then you have not sent me here, but God;And he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and to the lord over all his house, and to rule over all the land of Egypt.
I have not gone into this story. Just pointed out that although his brothers failed Joseph, so I'm being failed today to convey the message of the Christian marriage. So this is God's way, and that way, the message comes out anyway!
Service and refurbishment
Yet, one has been divorced as a believer and one holds a service, so stricter criteria are set. There are several places in Paul's teaching that one should be a woman's man (see the pastoral letters). What?
James says in his letter, chapter 3: 1, "My brothers! Not many of you must become teachers! Because we know we're going to get the stricter ones. "
The responsibility is very great to be a preacher. There is a big difference being a regular member of the church and being a preacher. But it is not so slight that one is more loved by God, but it is to be faithful to the responsibility God has given one. I believe that God will forgive all sin. But here are the other things that must be considered, as a preacher, you have a special responsibility. Would anyone in a profane context allow a pedophile to work with children? No. Equally clear, Scripture is that we should not allow a repentant preacher to proclaim to other people a pastoral and learn responsibility. That one is an evangelist like Frank Mang's was after he was divorced, we could allow. But do not be appointed as Pastor, Shepherd or Elder. One should not be the leader of the flock and the flock, but be under the supervision of one another.
But when one holds a message that proclaims, so much requires. Therefore, Jacob says that not many will be preachers. Therefore, a preacher can not take freedoms at his own expense, he has special responsibility for God and his fellow human beings.
In the case of marriage, it is not allowed for a publisher to marry again under any circumstance, then he disqualifies himself for the work he has received. It's like an athlete gets rid of his legs, he's no longer fit to be a sportsman, if he so wants. A preacher must be and the woman's husband we see Paul teaches over and over again. (1 Timothy 3.2 and Titus 1: 6).

Should something be unclear here, I recommend submitting a question to our blog or writing something there. This should and should have been a common understanding that did not get married and could pull land and beach rounds. It is spiritually powerful, demonic ones that follow in the footsteps of loose sexual and moral life.
1.Tim. 4. 1. The Spirit says in plain words that in recent times some will fall from faith. They will adhere to spirits that lead wild and to teachings that come from evil powers. 2 They are deceived by lying hypocrites who are branded in their conscience. 3 These refuse people to marry and demand that one should abstain from certain kinds of food, even God has created this so that those who believe and know the truth should receive it with thanks. 4 For all that God has created is good, and nothing is repulsive when it is received with thanks. 5 It is sanctified by the word and prayer of God.
It's not A and B Christians. Marriage is a divine order that also shows the relationship between Christ and the church. Therefore, in the nature itself, there are so many demands.God is behind his word, so this is a model of something even bigger and richer. Our relationship with Jesus and his relationship with us. Therefore, be careful with both the one you marry and that you do not disturb your life here. By living in accordance with God's word here, the best assumption is that you grow as believers.
1. Tess. 4. 1. By the way, brethren, we praise and admonish you in the Lord Jesus: You have received and taught us how to live and please God, and so are you alive. But you must make even bigger progress in this! 2 You know, indeed, what orders we gave you from the Lord Jesus. 3 For this is the will of God-your sanctification: you shall keep you away from horror; 4 Everyone will know to win his own wife in holiness and glory, 5 not in the sensual desire of the Gentiles; They do not know God. 6 And no one may make his brother wrong, or deceive him in these things. The Lord punishes all that we have said before and put on your mind. 7 For God did not call us to uncleanness, but to a holy life. 8 Therefore, the one who rejects this does not reject a human being, but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit.
We read that the scripture gives a clear testimony of the priest in the old covenant how he should live, who stood in the same responsibility for God and his fellow human beings as the preacher and the overseer in the new covenant. Leviticus 21:14: "A widow or a divorced or an inferior woman or a harlot - he must not marry such a thing. Only a virgin of his people shall he take to wife ".
Reading that God gives the same testimony and demands the same of the priest during the forthcoming 1000th anniversary that will serve the people of Jerusalem in Israel, from which law and justice will be based. Ezekiel 44:22: "A widow or a woman whom her husband has divorced from, they shall not take a wife, but only virgins of the house of Israel. But they can take a widow who is widowed by a priest. "
When the Scriptures are so clear as regards the priest in the Old Covenant and during the 1000's, it is no less clear when it comes to the time of the church, we who live under the most wonderful and greatest privilege of all; "A woman's husband".
Just as the Scriptures say that it is demonic and seductive to deny a preacher and overseer to marry (1 Timothy 4: 1), it is getting under the same negative conditions to accept and allow preachers to marry New while the spouse lives. It is only at death that it may be appropriate for a supervisor to marry again, and then with one that is not divorced!
Final comment:
There's nothing special about me, I'm from a home where neither my mother nor my father were personal Christians. Was raised in the usual way in Lutheran faith and learning, but after I became a Christian myself 16 years old. Then God's word was my boyfriend own!
Based on that, I've always taken my choices and take my choices!
Therefore, unfortunately, this is what I experience today, as I argue that God's word does not allow a preacher and pastor to be reissued, put in the "stench" for convenience and all other excuses among the other believers!
