The heart of a father

“My son, don’t forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commands;” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:1‬

Included in the Calling

Among the many beautiful people I’ve met over the past years here in Sweden are the significant callings as the Lord appointed them to play a huge role in the spiritual shift that is ahead of us.

How do I know?

My biggest question to the Lord has always been to have the Elisabeth-Mary experience where what I “carry”, jumps up in recognition of what I meet!

“And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! And why is this granted to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold, when the sound of your greeting came to my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.””
‭‭Luke‬ ‭1:41-45‬ ‭ESV‬‬

These moments of first recognition were also marked with the reality of them being so destined but still so unprepared! As over the years even disconnection happend (mostly through disappointment), Continue reading

11:1, the proclamation of a new beginning

Bypassing the tree, from the roots again, a new growth, ignoring the conclusions of wild growth, pictured in the three times one!

As mankind messes with the generations, Adonai respects and honors the roots of origin by (re)starting afresh.

As the undefiled roots still hold the seed and full power of original fruitfulness, it’s the surprising moment where seemly dead and seemly old is reproducing a shoot!

Our God is into “to old” and very barren where the obvious proof of His doing is the only reliable source! The God of Abraham and Sarah, of Hannah and Samuel, of Isaiah 54:1 holding the promise of the conserved creation.

When the sinful intentions of mankind causes the plan of redemption to be blocked or sidetracked, THERE IS GOD and there are the NEW BEGINNINGS.

The fury of reactions, whether by religious legalism or today’s “democratic” rages, proves that the battle of Eden is still on but praise God the PLAN is stil undefiled and in full strength!

The longing, sometimes deep down and almost silent, for freedom and purpose in its Creator is what makes that Adonai is reaching out again and again and announcing His ONE ONE ONE loudly and certainly!

As we live in a whirlwind of evil and almost darkness where nations are collapsing under the weight of oppression and abuse of power, a FAITHFUL Father is arising for the sake of His children shouting, breathing His RUACH containing the redeeming ONE!

There are significant markings in HIStory (skillfully wickedly rewritten and often removed) that are worth revisiting, functioning as memory stones to “tell” the story of a God that steps in and without the doing of men’s hand changing and correcting the course of LIFE!

Go UK, go America, go Israel, go Sweden, go nations, go families, go parents, go YOU!

But a branch will emerge from the trunk of Yishai, a shoot will grow from his roots. The Spirit of ADONAI will rest on him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and power, the Spirit of knowledge and fearing ADONAI — he will be inspired by fearing ADONAI. He will not judge by what his eyes see or decide by what his ears hear, but he will judge the impoverished justly; he will decide fairly for the humble of the land. He will strike the land with a rod from his mouth and slay the wicked with a breath from his lips. Justice will be the belt around his waist, faithfulness the sash around his hips.” Isaiah 11:1-5

Establishing PRAYER ALTARS this coming year

by Wanda Alger

Through our prayers we can shift the atmosphere over our homes, our cities, and our nation. Our corporate agreement in declaring God’s Word has power in the Spirit to change hearts, save lives, and establish Kingdom realities. But if we want our collective voice to have governing authority in the spirit, the Church must first establish itself as a house of prayer.

praying-for-the-city.jpg

. . . My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations . . . (Mark 11:17).

Though it may look different from “house” to “house,” our role as a priesthood of believers is to establish a place of God’s presence. In 1 Peter 2:9 (KJV), we are called “. . . a chosen generation, a royal priesthood . . . .” This is part of our function as representatives of His Kingdom on the earth—to be ministers in the house of the Lord. We become witnesses to His presence and power as we minister before Him where we’ve been planted. Continue reading

The Centrality of Jesus – A Christmas Reflection for Every Day

by J. Heinrich Arnold

Life needs a center, a core, an axis to revolve around and anchor our physical and philosophical existence. Whether we like it or not, we all center our lives around something – it might be family, career, money, or sex, or ego, or an addiction. There is some element that will drive our life path forward toward good or ill, whether we’re conscious of it or not. So Christmas is a time to consider what we want the center of our lives to be, and we want a center we can trust. Continue reading

The Story of Life

By Eric Boerhout

Whoever wants to save his life should lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake should win it.” Matt 16:25

Each of us has its own unique life story. It begins completely beyond our own control and will. The start is written by other people’s actions and motives. Hopefully, your life begins with a loving dad and mom. Hopefully you were born in a loving home in a safe country full of opportunities. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Your life may have started in an environment of struggle, strife and broken relationships. Maybe it was not so loving in your home, or your country was not so safe to live in. We all have a very different beginning to our life stories, depending on the circumstances that made their mark on it.

But no matter how the start has been, everyone eventually comes to a point where the pen becomes more and more your own. The moment when you yourself decide how the story will continue. Then it is your own thoughts, motives and actions that decide how the story should proceed. For me, this point came when I was 12 years old. I was born and raised in a loving family who gave me everything I needed. But, as many may recognize in themselves, I sought to take control of life to move in a different direction. I thought that if I could do what I wanted, freedom and happiness would be the result – my life was filled with drugs, parties and alcohol. Already at the age of 18 I became a father and had to be responsible for the consequences of my actions. I had taken control of my life story and what was written down was now a mess.

I had taken control of my life story and what was written down was now a mess.

I think we all get to that point in our lives when we have to look back and think about the history we have written. Of course, there are many things we couldn’t control – things that rushed right into our lives and caused a huge impact. Other people’s actions, illnesses and disasters that left large ink stains on the page. But we all have a choice how to react and respond in the middle of the storms. And then pick up the pen again and continue writing where the waves of life placed us.

And then pick up the pen again and continue writing where the waves of life placed us.

When I looked at the mess I left behind, I realized that I would not be able to arrange this on my own. This is where God came into my story. He turned out to be a loving father, a friend and savior who did not get angry when he looked at my past. He was neither shocked nor overwhelmed by the mess I put up with. Instead, He took me by the hand and asked me if we could continue to write the story together.

No matter what your life looks like today – or what you have written so far – you can choose to leave control of your life to God and continue to write the story with Him. The Bible says in Jeremiah 29:11 that God wants to bless your life.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Jeremiah 29:11 ESV

I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days, that you may dwell in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”

Deuteronomy 30:19-20 ESV

Prayer requests:

– That the congregation in Sweden should hand over control to God and let Him lead.

– That many who do not believe should turn to God and find Him in the midst of the storms.

Eric Boerhout, Sverigebönen 24-7

A ‘Barnyard Anointing’ Will Bring in The Harvest

By Bill Yount

I hear birds singing, cows mooing, horses neighing, donkeys hee-hawing, roosters crowing, dogs barking, chickens cackling and bells ringing. I hear farm animals praising the Lord. They know it’s harvest time. We better worship ’til the cows come home’.

You gotta love the Barn if you want to see a Harvest. You gotta love people who act like animals if you want a Harvest. You gotta love even yourself if you wanna see God move. Remember you and I are included in the harvest that God is bringing in.

You gotta love horses because we as His Bride are going to ride some wild ones. And it’s time to get back on the broncos and bulls that threw us off. We better love donkeys because the Lord is going to use them again to ride upon into cities and the nations of the earth.

Get used to the smell of manure if you want a harvest. The number one fertilizer that helps us and everything else grow is manure. It’s Harvest Perfume. It’s the perfume of harvest. Turn to someone near you and tell them, “I have a whole lot of fertilizer around me and something good is about to happen!”

Don’t Be Afraid to Get Your Hands Dirty in This Harvest

A ‘barnyard anointing’ will get your hands dirty. I saw the hand of the Lord reaching down and scraping the bottom of an old barrel. The bottom was filthy and slimy. That’s where He focused on reaching. I don’t know about you but He got his hands dirty when He reached way down for me. I was lost and undone without God and His Son, when He reached way down for me.

The Lord is coming to set our harvest fields on fire. The fire of God will be seen in your own back yard and afar off. We will discover the true fire is in the Harvest. We will catch on fire as souls get born again. It’s the fire in the harvest fields that will ignite the body of Christ again.

When the Lord has touched your Mouth…

To those that carry the New

It’s amazing how well received you are if you play along and help maintaining the Old, although carrying the New.

But the moment they realize you didn’t come to confirm the Old but to Declare the New, silence and rejection becomes your part.

It’s hard when the values of the Old become strongholds that resist the New.

Defending the Old as being the Now means that the Old will always be old and only becomes older.

In the same time, declaring the Old as being the Not is declaring your Tree doesn’t has Roots and your House doesn’t has a Foundation.

Very few realize that there is a progress involved when we understand the renewal of the Old by embracing and recognizing the New.

Thinking generational means thinking progression, legacy and infinity.

And remember, Old is not Wrong but… Old and of course, New is not per definition Good, but just… New.

Old only become Wrong when its refuses to understand that it’s a stepping stone to the next level.

Generations are not a part of a repeating itself system but with deep honor involved to the values that are brought by the Old, a progressive process of Restoration and Renewal.

When we become part of the “Behold I will do a New thing”, we become part of a Kingdom bigger Perspective. We become part of the Taking back what the enemy has stolen.

When you become the Voice of the Old by rejecting the New, you become the personification of what is supposed to be a process, not a person.

Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Then I said, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth.” But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’; for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, declares the Lord.” Then the Lord put out his hand and touched my mouth. And the Lord said to me, “Behold, I have put my words in your mouth. See, I have set you this day over nations and over kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.“”

Jeremiah 1:4-10 ESV

…to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.

The Power of the Pen…

So, Jesus was a refugee too?

https://www.bokus.com/bok/9789186683962/jesus-var-ocksa-flykting/

For some month now I have been worried about the way we find ourself using the Bible by explaining a misleading or at least dangerous thought.

I have to be honest that it proves the fact that the Word is a very powerful and creating instrument where we even can create our own lies or at least distractions. It is even rooted in the way God made us Continue reading

It’s time to arise into the place of your calling

By Ron McGatlin 

Much of the western world has adjusted to bondage that gradually overtook them in the name of freedom. A false freedom of indulgence in carnality free from spiritual truth, love and righteousness has stolen the sanity of the confused once sound minds of the people. Many of the people of the nations are imprisoned in darkness of bondage apart from God. In general they have little or no respect for God or God’s people.

The world was in a similar state when Christ Jesus the Son of God became the Son of man and came to earth born of a virgin as a baby, a human being but without lineage to the Adamic fallen world. God came to earth in the body of a man to set the captives free and reclaim the world. The world was filled with darkness, from the lowliest beggar to the kings there was darkness. Even the Jewish Pharisees and Sadducees, the religious leaders of that season, were in darkness (John 8:44).

The light of God in Christ Jesus came to the world to overcome the darkness and set the people free to again walk in the light of the kingdom of God. Everywhere Jesus and His disciples went they encountered the darkness of demons and diseases. They brought healing and deliverance to all who came to Jesus the Son of God, the Light of the world.

A DAY OF DELIVERANCE TO FREEDOM

The prayers of the saints have been heard and the onslaught of wickedness against God and His people has been seen from heaven and blatantly exposed on earth. The purging of the religions that had replaced Christ Jesus as head are coming down and the false foundation that has been built is crumbling under the hammers of the persecutors. The nations are being shaken into rubble and eventually nothing that is lifted up against God shall stand.(Hebrews 12:26) (Isaiah 2)

IN THIS SEASON THE LIGHT OF THE SON OF GOD HAS ARISEN AND IS AGAIN BRINGING HEALING AND DELIVERANCE TO ALL WHO WILL COME TO THE LIGHT. THE GLORIOUS LIGHT OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS HAS ARISEN FROM WITHIN AND UPON A REMNANT ARMY OF PURE HEARTED HOLY SPIRIT FILLED PEOPLE WHO ARE THE BODY OF THE LIVING CHRIST ON EARTH WHO COUNT NOT THEIR LIVES TO BE THEIR OWN BUT THROUGH LOVE ARE BRINGING FORTH THE POWER OF GOD TO SET THE PEOPLE FREE.

Let’s Be Real…

So, the city is taken, just because you demonised the watchmen on the wall. While they saw, reported, saw again and keep reporting, you refused to listen and instead called them names!
So, now the city is taken, what do we do to restore safety in the city?
Isaiah 28:6 “…a spirit of justice to the one who sits in judgment, and strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.”
Jus know that God will give back strength to those that turn the battle at the gates.

Now this is what we do as Christians, we always find a way to work all things for good…

THE COMING BARN REVIVAL

By Brian Francis Hume

AN UNPRECEDENTED HARVEST is coming. This has been prophesied for years, even decades. Many have seen this. I’m going to refrain from throwing out numbers. But I do want to affirm the deep longing of the Father’s heart: An inkling of the coming harvest is indeed upon us now!And it is going to start in barns. Indeed, humble dwellings. It will be a revival unto the harvest.

In ancient biblical times, barns were used to store the harvest. In pre-Roman times, barns were storehouses that were underground in caves, cisterns, or holes that were covered to ensure protection from the elements. The goal was to shelter the harvested goods from inclement weather and other dangers could cause damage. Continue reading

Elections, Information, Leadership and the Fight for Truth

Eph. 4:14 Then we will no longer be little children, tossed by the waves and blown around by every wind of teaching, by human cunning with cleverness in the techniques of deceit.

I have been pondering on this for a while this morning if I really wanted to put it up but…. let’s go for it!

I have a huge concern about the way we want to influence the people and specifically the Christians of our nation through our articles in the newspapers and the way we use the platform of our congregations.

When we give (respected) people like Stefan Swärd a platform in our newspaper so he creates authority in his writing while in the meantime in an ugly way he openly attacks his brothers like Continue reading

Opening Up the Gateway Cities

Reposting a very important message/teaching for those who can handle the weight of the responsibility! Living in the shadow of one of these cities in the nation of Sweden, you might understand my repost! Recently Jönköping, Kalmar and Göteborg have been spiritually recognised in this category and I personally know those who are taking deep responsibly in prayer and action! Honoring them and hopefully adding an encouragement with it.

Opening Up the Gateway Cities – Releases Profound Heavenly Blessings Into the Earth

By Nathan Shaw, Dunedin, New Zealand

Most people today have a revival mentality. Revivals come and go. But how do you strategically open a nation so that the glory of God abides there on a continual basis? Firstly, you have to discern and open the gateways. Cities are gateways. When heavenly gateways are open, Heaven floods through a city. When demonic gateways are open, perversion infiltrates and dominates a city.

How about Sweden?

So much is happening all over the world, concerning the Kingdom of God…
Is Sweden forgotten?
Absolutely not!

There is a sound in this nation that still is not revived! There is an identity that is so covered up in the years of transformation through a Socialistic ideology that it is hard to see the unseen yet… but it’s there for those who have the eyes to see and the ears to hear.
In the same time this who see are the ones that sometimes come up with that deep concern of seeing a substitute that sounds great and even looks good but is NOT Continue reading

Det som gömmer sig i snö kommer fram i tö!

Often the nation of Sweden has been prophesied over as “The Frozen Chosen”!

IMG_3122

As we had this wonderful walk this morning with the family, the saying came up: “Det som gömmer sig i snö kommer fram i tö!”, meaning that what is hidden by the snow, will be revealed through the thaw! It landed right away in my spirit and it caused me to write.

The nation or at least our part of it is totally covered still by a beautiful white blanket of snow. I often thought about what I probably forgot to clean up before the season of snow entered but realised that one day it will show up again. Continue reading


Who Can I Send?

Destructive sounds have invaded the atmosphere and caused the world to give in to darkness and the demonic powers. Called to be the Light, the Word, the Provision, the Church has become silently irrelevant and therefore gave away, neglected the assignment and the calling of the Lord to go and make…

Complaining about “the darkness”, made us whiners, irrelevant voices ignoring the fact that we are The Voice, The Change, The Answer, as He told us to be and clothed us with all that was needed.

But… Continue reading


Light The Fire

Although neglected by the News doesn’t mean that nothing is happening!

What a sad conclusion as we all see that the only true reality for the generation arising is the way it is digitally shown. The presence of news in our Social Media circles create reality and moves the people. In a way of course it makes us deeply depended and with it it became a manipulative instrument in the hands of cruel agendas.
No matter what we do to match up with the absence through posting the good news (which we have to keep doing), there is no way we can override the excessive noise that is being produced and echoed! Continue reading


The Church, Abortion and Future Generations!

Today I felt to write on the delicate subject of Abortion!

Youtube will show us the many clips about how awful the practice of this huge multimillion activity daily is. The saddest thing of course is the fact that they easily, without bad conscious can defend it for the sake of Free-Choice, and wellness for the mother.

Well, I am not going to get there since I know God will judge the nation and in fact is judging them heavily! No, this post is not about them but about us. Continue reading


Code of Honer

I had this funny creative impression, as it turned out in a deeply confronting mirror moment. I tried to picture a Sunday morning Church meeting on the basis of Social Media performance where the audience is using the Pastors platform to discus their opinions while he is preaching his sermon! I’m used to the “can I have an Amen!”, but now-a-days we use each others “platform” to start our own discussions in the benches!

There is too often a following to create followers, a “like” to offend (as our amens just mean “hit them right on”) and… a becoming “friends” with hidden agendas! Continue reading


The Treasures of Africa

I am posting the last chapter of Vaughn Martin’s book: Transforming the Heart of Africa and as far as I can see, the book is Out of Print and Limited Available.
In the process of reconnecting the nation of Sweden to it’s original calling, missions, sharing the love of God to the nations, God is helping us to focus on the legacy of this mission calling in the continent of Africa. Burundi, this tiny (in)significant nation was the start. My friendship with my amazing friend from South Africa and now finding the script of this book that I helped to publish some years ago… All points to a leading of God in a specific direction.

Recently I am connected to an intercession network in Africa and I pray that this message will touch you, equip you and challenge you my dear brothers in Africa in leading positions!


 

By Vaughn Martin

Africa has been given an abundance of God’s blessings and riches.  Africa is blessed with more than enough cultivatable land to feed her people.  Africa is not overcrowded.  Africa has been given an abundance of mineral wealth including even gold and diamonds.  The natural beauty of Africa attracts millions of tourists to Africa every year.
