The reason I want to write this blog is that I want to encourage every Christain to follow Jesus to the fullest by obeying Him: it is truly life changing! By writing these stories of every day life I want to show, that it should be normal for Christains to live a supernatural life. I’m learning more everyday how to approach and love people and how to tell about God and share the Gospel.
I moved to Finland in mid July 2016. My wife and I came across to a documentary movie The Beginning from The Last Reformation in the end of that autumn and since then our life has been changing a lot! I have always wanted to be an active disciple of Christ and was mainly evangelising on streets, trains, trams and busses when I had an opportunity and motivation. The only sad thing was that I never saw fruit: a person coming to Christ. I was glad when I had a good conversation with someone, but then I had to trust that the Holy Spirit took over and would have his way with that person. I never really saw a “life changing moment” of a person. But when I saw The Last Reformation -movie, it awoke something deep inside: “Oooh, I definitely want to have that too!”. Torben Sondergaard and others displayed Gods power by healing the sick, casting out demons, explaining the Gospel and baptising people. “Wow, this is Wonderful!”.
This is very special to me: for past 16 years I’ve been waiting for God’s calling to become true in my life. When I was 16, I was hit by a car while trying to catch a school bus and I spent nearly 2 months in coma. There was a prayer chain in my church for every hour of my coma and my parents had gotten prophesies that I will eventually wake up form it. One night, when I was in the hospital revalidating from the accident, the Holy Spirit woke me up in the middle of the night with a verse in my mind. I had never read it before: Isaiah 42:6. First I didn’t want to pay any attention to that thought, but since it didn’t go away and I couldn’t sleep, I grabbed my Bible and started to search for it. “I bet, that it doesn’t even exist”, I thought. But there it was, and it contained amazing and encouraging promises for me!! I nearly called my parents right away, but then I realized, that it was 1 am, so maybe better let them sleep. (Later I learned that verse 7 was also part of verse six so that made: Isaiah 42:6-7)
“I, the Lord, have called you to demonstrate my righteousness.
I will take you by the hand and guard you,
and I will give you to my people, Israel,
as a symbol of my covenant with them.
And you will be a light to guide the nations.
You will open the eyes of the blind.
You will free the captives from prison,
releasing those who sit in dark dungeons.”
I have been learning a lot from Torben (The Last Reformation) by seeing his example. I’m totally on fire right now, because finally I see these verses coming true! The Holy Spirit is working through me to preach the gospel , heal the brokenhearted and proclaim freedom to the captives. It is Wonderful! Now I know that this prophecy is for all believers (read John 20:21) but this was God saying it straight to me, and this made it extra special! I haven’t yet reached my goal, not at all, but I do know that this is the beginning of something great. I’ll die with this. This has changed my life forever!!
By making a blog I want to show my friends that this is possible for every believer. They know that I’m just a normal guy, just like them! So by doing this I want to encourage them to just step out and do the same. They will see that they can believe every word Jesus has said in the Bible literally! Join me and many others by stepping out to an exciting life with God!
