God is love.

He also has a great sense of humor, but he is also dead serious about important things. If you mess with Him you lose, just like Lucifer lost and got booted out of Heaven.

Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Why God didn't kill Lucifer right away, I really don't know, but it will all be revealed in the end. God says so in the book of revelation, the last book in the New Testament.

Rev 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

Man is very foolish.

Conan (the TV host) makes fun of God and Jesus. Since the only happiness I've known has come from God I don't really like to watch Conan any more.

The same goes for Mr. Bean. I used to like him a lot, because he is very funny, but he even made fun of the Holy Spirit.

Psa 86:13 For great [is] thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.

The Holy Spirit is the most sacred person in the Universe, and my teacher. It really grieves my spirit when people put the Holy Trinity down.

I understand that Conan and Bean are totally ignorant, and are doing it out of foolishness.

Men who live only in the flesh, so to speak, know nothing of the spiritual reality. They are totally blind and ignorant to what is going on, just like the ones who crucified the Lord.

Rev 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

Conan even prophesies when he sings -I'm a gonna go to Hell when I die. If he keeps it up he most definitely will, and then he will be sorry, but alas too late.

He will be tormented with the devil and all other's who didn't take God seriously, for ever and ever. Why I don't know, but that's what God says in His word so it must be true.

Psa 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, [and] all the nations that forget God.

Even whole nations...

That would probably be Muslim nations and other Eastern lands, since they worship the Moon/Sun god Allah. I'm so sorry for my Muslim brothers who do not know Christ yet. They don't know what htey are missing!

Some debate over the fact, if the crescent moon is a symbol of Islam or not. They are using it now, so why say that it isn't?

The Qur'an has an opposite message to that of the Bible.

They do not believe that Jesus died for our sins either. Jesus is only a prophet to them, so there can be no salvation for them. On the Mosque roofs you can read the text: "God has no Son"... That makes them Anti-Christ.

One of the weirdest things about Islam is that they seem to think everybody else is a Pagan, Christian or a Jew (QUR'AN Surat 2:23). They call us dogs, pigs, and they think that by killing us they are doing the will of Allah...go figure.

I'm sorry for them that they have had such a bloody history, and for the fact that it's hard for them to convert to Christianity. A conversion to Christianity or anything else in a Moslem country means a death sentence, anyone who kills a convert is considered a good Muslim.

There are other nations as well who worship demi gods.

Mohammed copied a lot of stuff from the Bible (600 years after the Bible was written), but he twisted everything around so it's one frightful mess.

Rom 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.

I'm glad that we still have Christian churches that we can visit, when the world gets too ugly.

I'm going to a meeting tonight, it's like having a glass of cold water after crawling through the desert for a week. Total freedom and peace of mind, right in the middle of the helter skelter day.

How often do you pray for your own kids, your wife or friends?

We often ask preachers to pray for our kids salvation, but many times we forget to do so ourselves. It's common, I've heard it many times.

It's very important that we pray constantly, even for our enemies and our country, whichever country we happen to live in at the time. Your prayers mean more than you think.

Lean on the prayer switch!

Just because you don't see everything happen, doesn't mean that nothing happens! Every time you get down on your knees to pray, you set the spiritual world in motion.

The answers may come in the blinking of an eye or 50 years later, but they will come. The main thing is that we mean what we pray and that we are honest.

You can't fool God, you might be able to fool yourself, but not God.

(it doesn't matter how or where you are when you pray, or even if you stand on your head, just as long as you pray:-)

Read this whole kaboodle and you will find the key to life!

I read an article today about Jim Carrey the actor (write 73 and 76 June 2006) and his 23 movie.

23 collage by Ben

Jim is on his way, I believe that our prayers are helping him, but we must continue to pray!

Jim mentioned in LA DAILY NEWS that he believed that when Jesus talked about being the only way to God, Jesus actually meant: "by loving like I love and forgiving like I forgive."

That is not what Jesus meant, although we should of course live this way as Christians.

It means literally what Jesus said!

Jesus is the door to the Father, that's why you need to say the prayer below to receive life! What have you got to lose? Nothing, just do it if you want to know God! If you want to be saved, because Jesus is the only way.

All the other gods or demigods as they are called, have nothing to do with the Creator (the Father of Jesus), they are demons and evil spirits trying to copy God, or just take His place. The demon gods always strip Jesus of His deity turning Him into a simple prophet.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

John 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

I'm not just saying this, I tried it myself when I was 21 and it works! And Jesus IS alive!

If you want to know God, don't be a SISSY, just say the prayer :-)

Sissy © Benjamin Antell 2007

The reason why it's so hard to say that prayer, is that everything is a spiritual war.

There are tiny voices in your head giving you all kinds of excuses not to pray. I know many who really struggled before praying. One friend of mine thought about it for one year! Then when I finally got to pray with him, he found peace.

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].

The devil is also alive and kicking, and he wants you to kill you!

He is the greatest mass murderer that ever lived! He will eventually be confined to Hell, that is why He is so angry and evil. He wants you to suffer also.

Rev 20:10And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

He knows that if you die in your sins (without asking God for forgiveness through Jesus), then he has another notch on his gun. He is that silly. Resist the devil and he will run away.

Do you want to experience something SHOCKING and cool?

I'm not kidding! If you do, just say this short prayer/key, and sit back and watch God do His work in you! Some will be shocked, others will grow slowly but you will all change! You will experience something completely different.

The Prayer, the key...

Heavenly Father I come before you in Jesus name, and I ask you to forgive me all my sins. Come into my heart and make me the man/woman that you want me to be. Show me the blueprint for my life. I believe that Jesus rose from the dead in my place.

(if you have problems with the prayer above, ask the Lord to help you believe).

If you mean it, the prayer will change you, it will unlock the door to life for YOU, I can promise you that much!

To me it's strange how we talk about Jesus as if He were a dead person. I know Him pretty well by now, and I can guarantee that He is very much ALIVE.

Just like in the old times, most people still don't understand it mainly because they have never said the prayer above.

Getting saved is so EASY that most people don't get it!

The prayer is only the key that unlocks the door to life's mysteries and to your heart. Without the prayer/key, you will stay in darkness forever. There is no way around it.

Jesus is not dead. He is YOUR resurrection after death!

God wants us to love and take care of each other.

The Bible tells us to visit people in jail, the sick and to help the poor. Who does that these days, not many I should think? Most of us just think about ourselves and our own COMFORT.

I think it's important to act, when God urges us to do so. Water to the thirsty and food to the poor. We need to love each other, what else is there?

I'm going to see my friend Pontus (write 264) at the hospital tonight, if my car will start :-)

Pontus on tour before he met God.

It was -29 degrees Celsius here this morning. The car might only clonk once or twice... Pontus is doing better now, I think God is healing his body, bit by bit.

I used to be a real egoistic dirt bag, when I was younger (even though I thought I was really nice, at the time :-)

Lucky for me God has whopped my ass now and then, in hopes of waking me. For this I'm grateful. I know I've got miles to go yet, but at least I'm going in the right direction...most of the time :-)

When you walk with God, things will start to happen in your life. You will grow.

I wonder why Jesus is always last on the list, when people look for the meaning of life.

If Jesus was number one on the list, they would be content right away. I remember the rock star Keith_Green mentioning this once. Jesus was last on his list too, luckily he lived long enough to find Jesus.

Many die on the way.

Looking for God in the wrong places often leads to ruin or even death.

The reason for this is that people often turn to eastern religions. When they do so, it is not uncommon that they become possessed by evil spirits.

The spirit world is strongly connected to drugs, so people who take drugs mostly go in that direction and it's very hard to return. Even Yoga and TM is a part of that eastern mumbo jumbo.

I know this is heavy stuff, but somebody's got to bring it out into the open.

When you are under the influence of drugs, your will power is low and evil spirits can easily enter your body.

Many who have evil spirits in their lives, think that it is their inner man who wants to come out, because this is something that shrinks often claim. Not having spiritual insight these shrinks can often do a lot of damage.

When people have spirits in them or are under the influence, they often want to change their names. The reason for this is that the spirits want their victims to bear their name instead. I believe this is why the Finnish murderer Valjakka has changed his name to Fougantine, for instance.

People who decide to become homosexuals, transvestites etc. also frequently take their spirits name instead of their own.

Some have many spirits dwelling inside them, the medical profession calls them Paranoid schizophrenics sometimes. It's not an illness however, it's pure spiritual possession.

No one is born as a homosexual, that's just propaganda. It's a popular thing to say. It is also pop to be gay these days, so many unfortunate people try it. It's a shame really, it's very easy to get HIV/AIDS that way. It's also easy to get posessed by evil spirits that way.

The devil is desperately trying to mess with us, and this is one territory he is winnig ground in. His aim is to destroy everything Holy. The marriage is a Holy institution, designed by God, not man. The devil is doing all he can to demolish it and us.

Doctors prescribe pills to keep schizophrenic patients drugged, so that they can't hurt themselves or others.

This does not help the patients in any way, it even makes them suffer more, because when they are drugged, they have an even harder time resisting the impulses that the spirits give them.

Just look at poor Britney Spears for instance. She was a rich beautiful woman. Then she started messing around with drugs and promiscuous sex. Now she is suicidal, it's a very common thing. The spirits who tricked her into the mess are trying to kill her now. They are trying to make her take her own life. I've seen this happen lots of times, and sadly I will see it happen again.

Many youngsters copy their parents, even to death sometimes. That's why it's important to be a good role model, and not take drugs or get wasted.

The only one who can set us free is Jesus Christ, because He is King of Kings, and the spirits are afraid of Him.

They fear Jesus because He holds they keys to Death, and He will punish these vile beings in the end. They know that they are doomed.

PS. For those who do not know: Evil spirits or demons are simply fallen angels, who rebelled against God together with satan as their leader. God kicked them all out of Heaven, and sent them to Earth for a time, just like Castro emptied the Cuban jails and sent the prisoners to the US of A.

Spiritualists call fallen angels, evil and good spirits because they are being fooled by the spirits. All the spirits and demons on Earth are evil except the Holy Spirit who is the third person of the Trinity. The Holy Spirit is in Heaven with the Father and Son, but His work is here on Earth.

All other religions except Christianity are ruled by evil spirits and demons! Demons are in our churches as well, because we aren't perfect either, but we do chuck them out on a daily basis, in Jesus name :-)

Religion per se is rubbish, a personal relationship with God through Jesus is what counts!

Don't go to seances etc. and don't talk to the spirits, they are full of lies and masters of deception.

You don't stand a chance against them unless you are saved. When I exsorcize spirtis, they sometimes try to talk, but I just tell them to shut up in Jesus name, and leave! They will leave, because the one who is in me is stronger than he who is in the world.

It's hard to explain but, when we give praise to the Father, the Holy Spirit often comes to us. You will know when that happens, because you can feel His presence when He comes if you are saved. Some can feel His presence even if they aren't saved.

The Holy Spirit is the one who enlightens us when we ask for guidance when reading God's word (the Bible). Without His guidance the Bible would just be another book, but He gives the letters LIFE.

He wants to be out Father, our Dad.

He wants this instead of gifts and sacrifices. After all what can we give to Him that He doesn't already have, except out love, devotion and our heartfelt thanks? Nada.

Money, money, money and money.

As some of you know I'm a painter and a musician. Every time people interview me about my art or music, money comes up. Man it's a drag. If they want to talk about art or music, why not talk about art and music?

I can't remember ever making music for money, except when I've done jingles. If you think about money while creating art, it's going to show, it's ugly for the most part...at least to me.

I remember doing a few painting for money, it was no fun.

When I paint, I want to paint my inner thoughts and feelings, I don't want to think about what others might think. I'm not going to use red, because red sells :-) If I use red, it will be because that particular painting needs red.

If I should ever make another portrait, I want to do it my way. If the customer gets in the way of my creativity, I'm simply not interested. In that case they can paint it themselves.

When I make music, I compose from my heart most of the time.

Even if I make a basic rhythm track, I just build it as a platform for what is about to come lyric wise. Often I don't have a clue what the lyrics or the melody will be, when making the rhythm track. It was certainly true for the CD Luna Park.

The lyrics and melody came later, mostly after prayer. I've been lucky so far, people have really liked my music, even though it's perhaps not what a mainstream record company would release.

Col 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

My love songs are mostly written to God, I love Him like there's no tomorrow, He is my everything. I really don't hold anything else as sacred except my marriage. There's nothing on Earth that compares to Him, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Without the Trinity, I would be nothing but dirt. They lifted me up and scrubbed my dirty old brain, which was badly soiled by this world.

The Beatles might have messed up big time in their personal lives, but they were right about one thing, money can't buy me love.

Please pray for his full recovery.

A finnish priest has been suspended from office because, he claims that we have no right to forgive people their sins.

The Bible is very clear on this subject. Anyone who asks for forgiveness will receive it, if he/she is really sorry for whatever they have done.

It's seems kind of strange the someone can become a priest and not know the Bible.

If you are a priest but don't know the Lord, then your life can get weird as anything. Everybody needs to be born of Spirit to know the Lord.

Luk 6:37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

Act 22:16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

Hebrews 9:28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

The following Chapter from the Bible is about things that all Christians need to get into.

I think this chapter speaks pretty much for itself. Go before the Father in Jesus name and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you as you read it.

(Gifts of Prophecy and Tongues)

1 Corinthians 14:1 Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy.

2 For anyone who speaks in a tongue* does not speak to men but to God. Indeed, no one understands him; he utters mysteries with his spirit.*

3 But everyone who prophesies speaks to men for their strengthening, encouragement and comfort.

4 He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church.

5 I would like every one of you to speak in tongues,* but I would rather have you prophesy. He who prophesies is greater than one who speaks in tongues,* unless he interprets, so that the church may be edified.

6 Now, brothers, if I come to you and speak in tongues, what good will I be to you, unless I bring you some revelation or knowledge or prophecy or word of instruction?

7 Even in the case of lifeless things that make sounds, such as the flute or harp, how will anyone know what tune is being played unless there is a distinction in the notes?

8 Again, if the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle?

9 So it is with you. Unless you speak intelligible words with your tongue, how will anyone know what you are saying? You will just be speaking into the air.

10 Undoubtedly there are all sorts of languages in the world, yet none of them is without meaning.

11 If then I do not grasp the meaning of what someone is saying, I am a foreigner to the speaker, and he is a foreigner to me.

12 So it is with you. Since you are eager to have spiritual gifts, try to excel in gifts that build up the church.

13 For this reason anyone who speaks in a tongue should pray that he may interpret what he says.

14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful.

15 So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my mind; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my mind.

16 If you are praising God with your spirit, how can one who finds himself among those who do not understand* say “Amen” to your thanksgiving, since he does not know what you are saying?

17 You may be giving thanks well enough, but the other man is not edified.

Without the above functioning in your church, your church will be in a dark place spiritually.

It takes a whole lot of faith from everyone to live the above, but the rewards are humongus.

In Mattew 5 God tells us not to swear or make any wows.

People make us swear on this and that. I don't think I've ever done it intentionally, because I've always been aware of this following Bible passage...

Mattew 5:33 “Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but keep the oaths you have made to the Lord.’ 34 But I tell you, Do not swear at all: either by heaven, for it is God's throne; 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. 36 And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. 37 Simply let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.

When I was in the Finnish Military, they wanted me to swear but I refused.

Just because of this, they assumed that I was a coward. I think that was a pretty weird assumption on their part. Our word is the only thing we have that is worth something anyhow.

I would defend any country that I was living in if it were attacked by a foreign power. I'm basically a pacifist, but I still feel that you need to defend the people where you live.

Many people judge others by the way they look.

I think that's pretty dumb. You can't tell a book by it's cover.

The guy in the photo is a pastor :-) and a good friend of mine. That's how he looked after our meeting yesterday :-) He may look like a Ninja Turtle to you, but he actually drives an Opel.

Living as Children of Light

Ephesians 4:17 So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking.

18 They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.

19 Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more.

20 You, however, did not come to know Christ that way.

21 Surely you heard of him and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus.

22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires;

23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds;

24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

25 Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body.

26 “In your anger do not sin”*: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,

27 and do not give the devil a foothold.

If you are a born again Christian, then the devil has no right to mess with you.

But if you sin, by lying, hating or being mad at somebody, you give the devil your little finger, and he will never let go until you ask God for forgiveness.

Ephesians 4:28 He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need.

29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

That's why I don't watch TV shows etc. because of the fowl language, and coarse jokes. They really greive my spirit. Sometimes I slip like everybody else, then I ask the Father for forgiveness. I don't know why he bothers to forgive and forgive, when I'm such a dork, but He does...lucky me :-)

30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.

32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Many seem to think that their deeds or actions will save them, not true.

And we slander our brothers and sisters. I know I do sometimes, it's easy to slip and sometimes hard to know where to draw the line. Lucky for me there is always forgiveness for a sorry heart.

Matthew 11:18 For John (the Baptist) came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’ 19 The Son of Man (Jesus) came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and “sinners.” ’ But wisdom is proved right by her actions.”

Woe on Unrepentant Cities

20 Then Jesus began to denounce the cities in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent. 21 “Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! If the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you. 23 And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted up to the skies? No, you will go down to the depths.* If the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day. 24 But I tell you that it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.”

Rest for the Weary

25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. 26 Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.

27 “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

To not pray daily, is like starving.

Photo © Gunnard Antell 2007

We dry up pretty quickly if we don't spend time with God on a daily basis. He needs to be a part of all decisions that we make. If we want to avoid a lot of hassles. The Bible should be our bread, and the Holy Spirit our water.

You can pray anywhere at all, at any time.

The main thing is that you concentrate on God and pray in Jesus name. When you come to the Father in Jesus name, you are actually in the front of the throne spiritually. Think about it, you are actually face to ace with God.

1Ti 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

1Th 5:17 Pray without ceasing.

Mat 26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed [is] willing, but the flesh [is] weak.

Luk 6:28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

Luk 10:2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly [is] great, but the labourers [are] few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

Luk 11:2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

Jhn 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter (the Holy Spirit), that he may abide with you for ever;

Since man is evil by nature, evil thoughts will always surface now and then.

Ask the Lord to delete them from your mind, I don't see that we can do anything else than that. It's important not to act them out or think about (nurture) them in any way.

Mark 7:20 He (Jesus) went on: “What comes out of a man is what makes him ‘unclean.’ 21 For from within, out of men's hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, 22 greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23 All these evils come from inside and make a man ‘unclean.’ ”

We are all sinners, saved by grace, through Jesus Christ who died in our place.

What a wonderful person He is, to have died in our place. I don't think that many people are capable of doing that, unless they are brainwashed, or just crazy. But He did it out of the goodness of His heart.

There's no way I can ever thank Him for what He has done for me, no way no how. I can only try to do good deeds in His name, deeds that won't save me but are a natural result of my walk with the Lord. He has saved me from Hell once and for all, by giving His life as a living sacrifice.

He gave His life for you too, what are you going to do about it?

If you don't ask Him into your life, you will be doomed. There is no way you can see Heaven, unless you ask Him to move into your heart. Jesus is the only door to life, I know it because He tells me so. Nobody wants to go to Hell, those who say so are blind as bats. Noone can imagine half of how terrible Hell is, it's pain and suffering for all eternity...unless God decides to destroy you completely for some reason.

Rev 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Psa 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, [and] all the nations that forget God.

Rev 1:18 I [am] he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

God has filled my life with meaning and spiritual power. What can I do except believe?

My wife's cat just threw up on the sofa...

She's got worms, man those are yucky looking things. This time the whole incident reminded me of people that I have seen coughing up demons. It happens now and then in church. It's good to be rid of them, they are messing up society.

Many don't believe that there are such things, but for born again Christians it's an every day thing. We see two worlds not just this "normal" one, we are also aware of the spiritual war that is going on daily. We see people being set free, and regaining their sanity and/or strength.

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].

Spirits or demons as many call these fallen angels, are a pain in the whatsit.

They can really mess up people. There are myriad's of different spirits. Just a few examples: the spirit of Hate, Disbelief, Legion, Adultery, Pornography, alcohol addiction, drug addiction, Murder, Homosexuality, Pride, UFO's, some are just too weird to mention here... I have had encounters with these and more.

Whatever demons they are, Jesus can set you free!

Sometimes they leave during a good sermon, sometimes with a lot of noise, other times they just swoosh by during prayer. Some require fasting and lots of prayer, before they loose their grip. They have to obey Christians who come against them in the name of Jesus.

This is one reason why it's important for us Christians to fast. We become stronger spiritually, and the Lord is with us on another level if we fast. I don't know why this is, I just know from experience that it works.

In eastern countries, evil spirits are a daily plague, and most people believe in them because they are constantly harassed by them. Here in the west, we are an easy target because of all the pride and lust.

The spirits here, are very schrewed, they have fooled many into believing that they don't exist :-) People in the west tend to think that we are too intellectual to fall for all that Mumbo Jumbo...

Most born again Christians know the above, but many don't talk about evil spirits and such because they are afraid of what people would think. Many would of course think that they are insane.

1Cr 2:13Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Spirit teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

I on the other hand just don't care what people think, so I'll share lots of stuff with you that others won't. People who aren't born of spirit just can't understand things of the spirit, it's just not possible since they are spiritually blind.

1Cr 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.

Luke 6:39 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?

Rom 11:8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

Rom 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

I will soon be working on new oil paintings for a new exhibition, date/country TBA.

I have so many images in my head, I feel like I'm about to explode. I'll be buying canvas next week. I will be doing a couple of 2,5 meter long paintings, perhaps three canvases.

One reason for me doing these large ones is that people here in Finland don't buy LARGE pictures...this way I'll still have them all when the Exhibition comes up :-) Besides there is more atmosphere in a large canvas.

I'm afraid it's the same thing with my music, I'll never have time to record all my songs...not a chance. I write lots of music in different styles.

I feel like I've painted myself into a corner here in Finland, because this little country (smaller that many cities) is like the end of the world. There are very few musicians here, or anybody for that matter.

It's very hard to put together people for musical projects, mostly because Finns do not practice much, everybody here has music as a hobby.

Perhaps it's supposed to be this way for me, I really don't know. I'm not complaining, just thinking out loud.

I can't see how I'm going to get the classical stuff recorded. Oh well, one day at a time. I guess you have to be really dedicated to get things done in this world...you are left to your own devices :-)

I'm grateful for the possibility to record in my own studio.

God has been good to me all my life. Especially since I decided to follow Christ. I have had an interesting life so far, with record deals in foreign countries etc.

I traveled around the world as a kid, because my parents moved around all the time. This was very enlightening to me, I got to meet people from many different cultures.

We are all very much the same, although poor people are kinder, more generous, and more spiritual.

It's funny how poor people are more generous, they have less but give more...

I know some people don't believe there's such a thing as the devil.

Oil painting © Benjamin Antell. The working title for this was "Don't let the devil get U"...

I on the other hand know that he exists, he's been kicking my butt around for the most part of my life. I know that he has tried to kill me more than once, that's for sure.

Just realized today what a coward the devil is!

He is picking on defenseless humans most of the time, while they "sleep". He has great powers for the time being, here on Earth.

The Bible teaches us to respect him and his demon's, at the same time as it tells us to show them the door.

Naturally satan is afraid of Christ, since Christ won over death and everything.

The devil has limited time to do his stuff. That's why he is angry and bitter. He is especially angry with those who Jesus has bought with His own blood.

We who are Christians keep interfering with the devil's work all the time.

We bring home lost souls to the father, people whom the devil wanted to kill. That's his game, to kill and make your life as miserable as his own.

The devil often leaves rich people alone, because they are often dying anyway.

Those who have money rarely give God that much thought, because they think their money is going to save them...sad.

One of the devil's best tactics is to make people believe that he does not exist. Especially in industrial countries, where everybody want's to be intellectual and important :--) The spirit of pride has killed many a man, and he too works for satan.

It's weird how some people gamble with their lives.

Some people don't give their lives a second thought. I could never do that, there is so much more to life than this temporary Earth thing.

Many scientists live in la-la land. I can say that because I have found the meaning of life. They buy all kinds of silly theories about Evolution etc., without checking the facts...and then they fertilize people with them.

Luke 10:21 At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.

If they would only try God, they would see how silly they are.

They will be judged very harshly, because of all the people that they have misled in life. It's the same with all teachers, if a teacher is antichrist or teaches weird doctrines, he will be up the creek without a paddle on the day of reckoning.

Matthew 23:15 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as you are.

John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand.

I'm eternally grateful that the Lord came and touched me physically and spiritually, when I looked for Him.

It's actually the Lord who pulls you to Him, when you think that you are looking for Him :-)

You can experience the presence of the Lord yourself, if you want to. All it takes is a little prayer, and He will turn on your spiritual life!

No matter how deep in dodo you are, He can pull you out in a second! I kid U not. He did it for me, and many, many of my friends.

When I got saved at 21 years of age, I heard of a 4 year old girl in England who was telling her friends in the sand box about Christ. The kids even got baptized by the Holy Spirit!

It's easier for kids to find God, because they don't have so many preconceived ideas, and hang ups :-)

When I met God, my life was an empty glass.

When He filled me with love
my glass began flowing over
I was spilling love all over the place
When I stopped spending quality time with God
my glass dried up pretty fast...

Thank God I got a refill!

I was unable to write for a spell, but I'm back now...

Many people are finding God right now, it seems like there's some kind of awakening going on all around the Globe.

This is something that makes me very happy, people finding the Lord and experiencing the supernatural...and especially receiving Eternal Life through the sacrifice of Christ!

It's really exciting being a Christian and being able to share all kinds of blessings, in daily life as well as in church. I don't think there's anything in life as fulfilling and wonderful, as when the anointing falls. Ask for it as you pray to God!

There are basically two kinds of Christians in church...kick seekers and people who want to get to know the Lord. I want to get to know the Lord as much as possible, I get a kick out of that :-)

Besides, when you get close to the Lord, your life changes drastically. You experience many supernatural things as you walk with Him. I'm not going to mention all of them on my write, but I will reveal some things now and then...if I feel it's necessary.

I might not be on line every day from now on, but I will try to share as much as possible.

I have work to do that the Lord has put on my heart so I'll be pretty busy. For how long I don't really know at this time.

I'm not trying to put anyone down with my Write.

I'm just trying to convey what God has put on my heart. I also feel that that life is too short, to just shut up and go with the flow when people suffer under all kinds of bondage, when they could in fact be set free in Christ.
