There are perhaps many Christians, who think that if I have negative emotions, I am in sin, and I am in unbelief and then God can’t help me. But to have negative feelings and emotions such as fear, timidity, depression, etc. is not a sin, but what they can lead you to that can be something bad. Let us look at the emotions that Jesus had, and how He…
 
I have good news for you! Even if you follow your feelings and has even become part of your character to do so, this is not who you really are from the creation and in your new creation; for what you do, does not tell who you really are.As a Christian, you have been crucified with Christ already (Gal 2:20) and the old is gone and the new has come (…
 
Many people are not aware that what you think will lead you to what you feel, and then again what you do.It is important that we know how to handle the feelings right so they don’t lead us down the wrong path. And it all starts with our thoughts.If you know you have thoughts and feelings that can lead you away from God and fellowship with Him, it i…
 
I got my breakthrough at a prayer center, but not in the way that I thought I would.I remember I woke up one morning and I was very bad. I had breathing problems, headaches, stomach pain, etc. and I said to God: “God! You need to speak to me today! “I was desperate for something that could give me encouragement and hope. I had signed up for a servi…
 
Our feelings can lead to a lot of bad things in our physical body as well, when they control us. The fact that we are not willing to forgive, for example, will cause you to feel anger, resentment, frustration and even depression. And when you have these emotions, they can lead to diseases in your body, like high blood pressure, autoimmune diseases …
 
The world we live in today is largely governed by what they feel. You may have heard this expression: If it feels good to you. This is a wisdom guided by emotions, not God’s wisdom. And this statement is really a devilishly lie, and could not be further away from the truth.I think you are quite aware that there are many things you can feel to do, t…
 
I have a testimony on how God gave me a big answer to prayer, even though I was about to and felt like giving up several times. Have you ever felt that you could never overcome a situation, I will never come out of this situation or it will never change for me, or I have this weakness that I can never manage to overcome? These are feelings of power…
 
If you are what we call a “Bible Believing Christian”, (believe what that the Bible tells us is true), you often know what it says, but because you do not always feel that what it says is true, you do not really believe what the truth it is saying. Even if you are a Christian, you have almost certainly been affected by this emotionally ruled world …
 
Many people struggle with this question: What Is the Purpose for My Life? Or as a Christian it can be: What is God’s purpose for my life and what can he use me to? The feeling of having a purpose is an important one, because we don’t feel content with life if we have no purpose.God’s purpose for your life is actually not a difficult one, it's easy.…
 
God gave you emotions. Part 5Sin is a thing that will bind you and lead you into bondage. Paul says in Romans that he who sins is a slave to sin. You are not called to be a slave to sin, but you are called to be free, free from sin and its power. God want to shift your focus away from sin and to righteousness.God does not focus on your sin, but who…
 
God gave you emotions. Part 4God is not sin focused, but He wants to show us who we really are in Him.He wants us to be grounded in who we really are. It is to be grounded in who we really are in Christ that will cause us to not sin.For in Christ, you are holy, pure, a righteous child of God, chosen and so on.You also need to see that when you were…
 
This is part 3 of God gave you emotionsI have seen a large increase of fear and depression, especially among young people.Many believe that to get Norway and Europe to repent, we must preach the law (The 10 Commandments and morality) to them so that they feel judged and condemned, and then they will turn to God. We hear some preachers say or expres…
 
This is part 2Many have the image that to be a good Christian is related to surrender, relinquish and give up everything including joy, and everything that feels good is bad or a sin.I must say that in the first 20 years of my life I was actually not sure of whether God wanted me to be happy or not, that I should feel happiness. There was some talk…
 
For the next few weeks I will upload a new part of this seminar/seriesThis is part 1What does the Bible really say about emotion? Are emotions something that is negative or positive? Does God want me to be happy? How can I control my emotions? What connection is there between feelings and fears?Emotions can be our best friend or our worst enemy. In…
 
In connection with the Corona Virus that is currently sweeping this world, I have heard people quote scriptures and say that this is God who is angry and it is his punishment for the world and its sin. Not everyone says this directly, but some still believe that it is God who sent it and stands behind it. If the corona virus is a punishment or as a…
 
Many view Jesus and God as a stern Lord or slave master, but it could not be further from the truth. Yet, many Christians are very focused on what they must do for Jesus, or whether they are doing everything right.They might think: Have I committed some sins that have made God angry at me, and in some way he wants to punish me?What are Jesus and Go…
 
Many Christians often pray this prayer: God use me! I myself have prayed this prayer, especially when I were in my teens. One of the reasons was that I were afraid that I could not be used for anything, and I attached my identity to what I could do and to be used for. I have a nine months old daughter (when I write this) and I love her over all on …
 
Perhaps you have heard: You steal from God if you don’t give the tithe, or you are under a curse if you don’t give, or God will punish you if you don’t give the tithe, or God will not heal you if you do not give. These two things are usually not said directly, but it can often be perceived in this way and maybe someone thinks this way too?In fact, …
 
The Bible says that the joy of the Lord is our strength (Neh. 10: 8).If you are depressed and worried do you have strength? We have little strength and power if we do not have joy.The joy is in you already, but you need to discover it more and more.We also have an enemy who is looking for an opportunity to steal our joy and peace.Learn how to disco…
 
We have probably all heard that God is love (1Joh 4:8), but what does that really mean? Some believe that God only has love, it's only one of his attributes, and he will show it to us when we deserved it or when we have behaved good.Some believe he only loves me and will hear my prayer when have repented from all of the sins I have done, and they m…
 
There are four important and essential questions that all people want an answer to.Maybe you live in denial, and think that it doesn’t matter or I am not a person who relay cares, but deep down, all people want to know the answer to these four basic questions.It doesn’t matter if you are religious or non religious. If you are a Christian, Buddhist,…
 
In this world it is easy to be stressed out. It can be all from work, circumstances, family, bad report when it comes to sickness or even when it comes to know our identity.As a believer in a mighty God, we should not give into this stress, but the reality is that we are not so much different from people in this world. We still let this things get …
 
We are all looking for value and being someone important. We are all looking for love.I think if we truly saw our value this world would look very different! This applies not only to the non-Christians, but to us Christians as well!I think there would be less gossip, envy and judging others if we really saw who we truly are, I actually think these …
 
Many Christians don't understand Galatians 5:17 very well, about the struggle between the Spirit and the flesh.Many people when they look at this verse they think that this it is about our new spirit and nature, fighting against the evil part of me, called the flesh.It means I still have a struggle on the inside and I have to constantly try to be i…
 
We are soon in a New Year, and it is often time to think and reflect back on the old one, and look forward to the new year.We have both good and bad memories of the year that have passed, and it is good to remind us of the blessings we have experienced, and also leave what has been negative behind us.God always has something new for you, and someth…
 
Someone might wonder about this headline? But I will explain to you what I mean with this headline during this teaching.For many years I was afraid of reading Galatians 5 where it is talking about the works of the flesh and the fruit of the Spirit. I was afraid that if I did some of the acts of the flesh, I did not belonged to God anymore. I someti…
 
I can actually tell you my answer right away: You can't!When you hear this answer and statement, you may think: You must be a Bible teacher who says that it is perfectly fine to sin and we can sin as much as we want without any consequences.Can I tell you one thing: There is no place in the Bible where it says you can lose your salvation in the sam…
 
Some think of our desires and desire as something evil. Especially when we read this verse:James 1:14-1514 But each one is tempted by his lusts, being drawn away and seduced by them .15 Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin. And sin, when it is fully formed, brings forth death.Can I tell you one thing: Your lusts and desires are created…
 
It is a spiritual evil force and power called sin, and it is our enemy. When other hurt me, I know that they do not see the truth about who they are, and when somebody sins against me, I also know that they are not what they do, but it is a spirit that is behind, and it's called sin, and it has tricked them to choose to do the wrong thing.If you or…
 
Your enemy is not yourself, but the lies you believe about yourself.We as Christians say that we have the answered for the problem of sin, which is Jesus, but in the practical life, it often does not look like it.Many Christians struggle with sin as much as the non-Christians, some even more, although they may manage to maintain a better facade. in…
 
When I bring up a subject like this, about sin, I can get many reactions.Some people think that I will not listen to this because I feel tired of being condemned and feeling guilty.Often this subject can be said like this: You are a big sinner, stop sinning, shame on you, try to win victory over your sin! Or they try to give you a ten-step program …
 
Sin may not be a very popular topic, but it is a very important one.What I am going to say about sin in this teaching will not be condemning, but I hope you can get a new light on this subject and see sin of what it is.The word sin is used most in religious context, and it is often about the wrong thing we do and think, and make a god angry and sin…
 
We are in a new year, but it may be easy that last year's disappointments are fresh in mind. God's wish for you in the new year is that you can put it the old things, you experienced in 2017, behind you and look forward to what God has for you in this new year!God is still good and he wants to bless you, he is not against you, but always for you.Du…
 
What I want in this teaching is to help you to distinguish between what thoughts are from you, what thoughts are from God and what thoughts are from the devil.We must distinguish between what is from God and what is not, for the enemy has even made you believe many of his thoughts and lies.It might be that he sends thoughts that it is God who conde…
 
Many Christians struggle to find out if thoughts they have comes from them, God or the devil.Today, I will share from Jeremiah 29:11, and this verse gives us a an answer.The thoughts God has for us are peace, no thoughts of evil or something bad.In other words, evil thoughts come from our enemy, the devil, thoughts that bring peace and hope, and th…
 
There are three tings that are closely connected, and effects the way we relate to our selves to God and others, and the way we can reach out to a broken, fearful, depressed and sinful world.It is also Important for your mental and physical healing.Your picture of God - How do you see God and how do you think he sees you?Your picture of yourself - …
 
Many Christians fear that they have not been forgiven by God because they have not yet been able to fully forgive others.They want to forgive, but they still have negative feelings towards those who have hurt them.They can easily be condemned by what Jesus is saying in Matthew 18:35, that if we do not forgive our neighbor with our heart, God will n…
