The heart of a father

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

Your Digital Life, Hidden with Christ

By John Lee

Serving the God ‘who sees in secret’ in a world where there’s pressure to post everything.

benefitsofsocialmedia900x600

Snap, post, chat, tweet, like, send—the gestures of social media, where a stubby thumb or an index finger is mightier than the sword and pen combined. Such is the world in which we live. However, one inherent weakness of social media is its inability to understand the beauty of hiddenness. In fact, there is nothing that I can think of that is more antithetical to the hidden than the proliferation of social media.

One inherent weakness of social media is its inability to understand the beauty of hiddenness.

The whole premise of social media is to reach as many people as possible, the more, the better. The frightening part about this logic is that it might be changing how we think about life. Can we enjoy a concert without capturing at least a part of it with our smartphones? Can we have a beautiful engagement without a hidden cameraman in the bushes to record the proposal? In short, without some sort of digital proof can something exist? It seems to me that it is increasingly impossible to conceive of something without footage. As the internet adage goes, “pics or it didn’t happen.” We seem to only value what can be witnessed by others or shared socially. Continue reading

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…

INTERCESSORS, YOU ARE BEING CALLED BACK TO THE FRONTLINES!

By CHRISTY JOHNSTON

I felt to release this word over the intercessors today. All week long I have had a burning in my spirit for you as the Holy Spirit has been awakening my own desire to increase in my intercession, but also to call forth the intercessors that have become weary on the battlefield. I keep hearing this decree like a mighty thunderous shout that is resounding from heaven, “Intercessors, you are being called back to the frontlines.” I released this word at our church on Sunday and as I did, I saw a vision of intercessors in chains. I saw that minor distractions had been sent their way in an effort to engage them in insignificant battles. These distractions and trivial battles had led them to engage in the wrong fight relentlessly until they were exhausted. I saw them fall to the ground in a worn-out heap and I heard their unified sorrow as they cried, “we give up, we can’t keep fighting like this.” I then saw the enemy move in stealthily and chained their hands and feet and covered their mouths, he had planned to restrict their movement all along so they would be no longer free to engage in the real battle at hand. I then heard the Fathers roaring decree, “BREAK THE CHAINS in the Name of JESUS!” I saw angels of fire released from heaven at that moment and they flew at the speed of light, they came like blazing torches and they aided the intercessors by breaking their chains and helping them to stand with strength. In Cindy Jacobs book, ‘Possessing the gates of the enemy’, she writes, ‘in a time of war, it is the generals who make the battle plans.’ I believe the enemy has been targeting the intercessors in this hour in an attempt to disorientate, disunite and disengage them from the battle in order to prevent them from making strategic battle plans for the army of God.

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

Having a Message…

As I wrote the header (some years ago) it was the result of a question I ask myself every now and then: “What is really my message? What is it that I really want to communicate?”

Todd Hanson did you get my message

The first obvious question that follows of course is: Do I have a message? Well I have to be honest: No not really! 

Please stay with me as I try to answer myself by searching the honesty of my agenda! I love to talk, to connect, to relate, to walk and I have learned that that is always the biggest challenge in meeting people. Continue reading

Is Now the Time to Enter?

By Duane Stewart

The time had arrived; a time looked forward to by Joshua and Caleb, who for forty years had been waiting for that great day of promise. A promised time from God had now arrived, a time when the Israelites were to enter the land God had promised to Abraham and his descendants. While Joshua and Caleb had remained faithful to God’s promised inheritance to the children of Israel, the remaining ones of Israel were but the offspring of those who had come out of Egypt and were now standing in their place of opportunity. The opportunity now available was one of entering the land of promise and taking hold of their inheritance. In this, Joshua speaks to the people in Joshua 3:5 by declaring, “And Joshua said to the people, sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you”. In requesting of the people to sanctify themselves, Joshua was asking the people to separate themselves from wilderness doubts and everything that was unclean to devote themselves wholly and completely to God.

Fuel for the Fire of God

By Ron McGatlin

The worldwide powerful move of the love and fire of God will not primarily be fueled by the current on-fire, kingdom-minded people of God. THEY WILL BE THE IGNITERS OF THE FIRE.

HOWEVER, THE GREAT GLORIOUS LOVE FIRE IS COMING FROM THE IGNITED DRY WOOD AND DEAD FOLIAGE OF THE RELIGIOUS MASSES.

The coming great worldwide powerful revival that leads to the kingdom of God on earth is primarily fueled by the currently cold and lukewarm religious people.

The cold hard religious are those who by strong and even murderous force coerce and control the people as they build armies and seek to control the world. They hold fast to their religious traditions of some truth mixed with traditions of men infested with doctrines of demons. (Matthew 24:12, 13:15, 23:13) (1 Timothy 4:1-3) (Mark 7:6-9) (Colossians 2:8-10). Continue reading

The Value of Having a Teachable Spirit

By Steve Porter

Mighty warriors who desire to go deeper are teachable. As we study the life of Abraham, we can plainly see why he was so blessed. More than anything else, he valued instruction and a willingness to keep the commandments of God. Such a desire is much more than just a willingness to listen. We become teachable when our desire to receive wisdom is greater than our desire for comfort.

blogteachable

“Integrity is the glue that holds our way of life together. We must constantly strive to keep our integrity intact. When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost.” (Billy Graham)

There is a quality of spirit deep within the heart that desires a much deeper Christian life. This quality is worth more than great riches, the rarest jewel, or even the greatest talent. It is the quality of a teachable spirit.

Valuing Instruction

Are we diligently seeking God’s best in our lives, refusing to compromise our integrity and character?

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

The Miracle for our Nation is in Your House!

Received this very significant word this morning by Bill Yount.
Asked him to publish it with the adjustment to Sweden.

The Hidden Power in our Families
I believe we have overlooked and underestimated the awesome power that is hidden in our families. When God created us He placed us in a family. There is something about a family atmosphere that generates the power for us to subdue the earth and bring His Kingdom into the affairs of this world. I believe satan feared the seed of the woman–for it would have the power to destroy him. He well knew that even our children would contend with him in the gate (see Psalm 127:5). I believe this is why the Lord’s desire has always been to “set the solitary (the lonely, widows, orphans and the fatherless) in families” (Psalm 68:6). Continue reading

What God are we talking about…

This is what I do often, rereading my blogs like 3 or 4 year ago, just to check my insights at that moment and the developments today!
Februari 2015, I posted this blog and reviewing the time past since, I can honestly say that so much has happened (even) for the better. 3 years on and the hunger is more visible than ever and… the way the Body of Christ is connecting and reacting is amazing and encouraging!

“I, Yahweh, have called You for a righteous purpose, and I will hold You by Your hand. I will keep You and appoint You to be a covenant for the people and a light to the nations, in order to open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the dungeon, and those sitting in darkness from the prison house. I am Yahweh, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another or My praise to idols. The past events have indeed happened. Now I declare new events; I announce them to you before they occur.” (‭Isaiah‬ ‭42‬:‭6-9‬ HCSB) 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

The Breath of Life

By Henry Falcone

This morning I felt like a “spiritual earthquake” go off in my spirit. I was asking the Lord today where He wanted to meet with me. I am presently getting prepared to go on a new prayer assignment with the Lord, and I was heading to one place to go, when I felt the Lord say go to this other place. 

As soon as I made the turn to go on that highway, I felt that spiritual earthquake like something big has happened today in the spirit. I know, I know, so many times we hear that so we almost become numb to it, but there has a positional change today from the Lord released to his maturing sons and daughters.  Continue reading

Sounding the Alarm

The relevance of our “Sound”
While this nation is debating and complaining the “prayer call” of the Mosques in the nation, the church is awful silence concerning their real call!
As Zen Buddhists release their sound with deep understanding how to take captive of the spiritual atmosphere, today Världen Idag released another proof of the fact that other religions understand “Sound” better that we, the Christians do! In his testimony, a former Muslim gave deep insight in the strategy of the “Call of Prayer” made from there “high places”: When the Muslim Prayer call sounded over the city, it means that “we have taken this city”, says Saeede Berisha who grew up in a Muslim family in the Balkans.

Gideon, the Story of Today

Its the story of Gideon in Judges 6 and on, that made me pounder on the situation of our nation and the Christians that are in it!

So, what was the situation of Gideon and why was he acting as he was.

The nation
1 The Israelites did what was evil in the sight of the Lord. So the Lord handed them over to Midian seven years, 2 and they oppressed Israel. Because of Midian, the Israelites made hiding places for themselves in the mountains, caves, and strongholds. 3 Whenever the Israelites planted crops, the Midianites, Amalekites, and the Qedemites came and attacked them. 4 They encamped against them and destroyed the produce of the land, even as far as Gaza. They left nothing for Israel to eat, as well as no sheep, ox or donkey. 5 For the Midianites came with their cattle and their tents like a great swarm of locusts.
They and their camels were without number, and they entered the land to waste it. 6 So Israel became poverty-stricken because of Midian, and the Israelites cried out to the Lord. Continue reading

Can These Bridges Hold the Weight of My Glory?

A Word by Bill Yount

2D5FF57B00000578-0-image-a-60_1444750245719

Angels Are Descending to Inspect Spiritual Bridges Throughout the Body of Christ

As Angels were Inspecting ‘Spiritual ‘ Bridges throughout the body of Christ, the Father was asking a question… “Can these bridges hold the weight of My glory?”

Webster’s Dictionary defines the word “bridge” as: a structure spanning and providing passage over an “obstacle” as a waterway.

Have you been feeling like there are obstacles in your road of getting to where God wants you to be? 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

A ‘Severe Pruning’ of Prophetic Gifts Has Begun

Prophetic Input by Bill Yount

tree-trunk

I saw the body of Christ plowing with great difficulty in the field of labor. Finally our plow seemed to hit a stump in the field, and we couldn’t go any further. With all our efforts and praying, this stump remained unmovable and steadfast. Our hearts were broken, for we knew God had placed us here to plow in this great field of harvest.

But this “stump” in the field was stopping us. Continue reading
