Blessing or cursing?
The Fall of Sin and the Gospel of Christ.
God has created all things, he created men, and they experienced that He did his work with them. God rested after all his work and they were rested on the basis of what he had done (Genesis.1-2). But they fell out of that rest, so it was said to the man that the earth should be cursed for his sake, thorn and thistle she should wear, with sweat in his face he would eat his bread until he returned in the earth again, he was soil and should return to it.
But Abraham believed God, so he declared him to be righteous and promised him that in him all peoples should be blessed. This promise is fulfilled in Jesus. Sin separated men from God, but with his offer for sin, Jesus took the sin away once and for all. So on the foundation of the gospel, our relationship with God is restored as it was before the fall of sin, but now Christ is the last Adam, who is from heaven and who for us has become a life-giving spirit. He is the head of the man and the man is the head of the woman and so Christ is the head of the church that is his bride. God creates us in Christ and then He creates us in accordance with Genesis.2, for he is the same now. So the blessing we lost in Adam, we win back by faith in Christ.
The priests speak fondly that Jesus blessed the toddlers and make appointments with the parents and godparents that they should be trained in the Christian faith. Then they baptize toddlers. Thus they stand supreme over man, and would like to retain such a sovereign position towards man later in life as well. If they do it with the preaching of God’s Word, I guess that’s ok, because that’s what’s so superb. Many others can also preach God’s Word and in the recent past it has also become ok. Good and well. God’s Word is food and nourishment for us, by it we shall grow and mature. We shall grow up to Him who is the head of the body, Christ. Then we remain at home in the fatherhouse, He is and becomes our guardian, we experience the love and care of the Father.
For a long time, priests have said the blessing in the church. Really it started with ordinary people accepting the gospel in faith and being blessed and then preaching it to them, so others were also blessed. That’s why the priests started with it too. By faith in Jesus we got the right to become children of God, Jesus is the way to our Fathers house. When we go that way, we will experience his love and care for us like his children. It has shown to have political consequences, we gained national independence and democracy and we considered it as obvious that through it our own interests are being taken care of.
But in the last 40-50 years, priests and preachers have departed from this and started to say curse instead. And it turns out in politics too. Priests, preachers and politicians curse their own people, so that their policy is not to take care of their interests on important areas in life. The leaders of the labor movement dos not take care for ordinary workers’ interests in central areas of life, especially regarding men, but on the contrary, they oppose them.
What’s the problem? Sin separated man from God, but with one sacrifice Jesus took away sin once and for all. That’s the gospel. But they reject Christ and his gospel. Then the alternative is the Antichrist. So they stick to the traditional moral statement and thinking that men and women are evil, therefore they are slaves and shall continue to be slaves. The point is that this is how they try to gain power over women and men and make religion out of it. It is the religion of this world’s god, the Devil.
We seek communion with God on the foundation of the gospel, then we use the methods of the gospel. We can also seek truth with the methods in science.
We seek communion with God on the foundation of the gospel, then we use the methods of the gospel. We can also seek truth with the methods in science, Christians can include it in their activity like learning at school, sport, hobby and job. Jesus has said he will be with us every day.
The Method in Christianity is given by the gospel. Jesus said that we should believe in Him, love Him, and love one another, and he would reveal himself to us, he and the Father would come and take residence with us. So the method is to believe and to love, then we may experience that God does his work with us, by his Spirit and his Word, so we can say that the method is that we let God do his work with us, that is what is essential and fundamental. He is like a farmer and His Word is the seeds, which He sows in our hearts, when by faith it merges with us in our hearts, then we becomes the seeds He sows in the world.
Christ is the last Adam, who is from heaven and who for us has become a life-giving spirit. So he is the one who cultivates and protects God’s garden. God reveals his salvation for us in Christ, the Holy Spirit glorifies and reveals Him to us as our savior and Lord. Then we must also continue to turn to Him and look at him as the Spirit glorifies and reveals him to us. He is the glorious image of God, he creates us in him, that we shall become like him, so God creates us in his image. Jesus is the life and he gives meaning to our lives. He is our savior and Lord, so we praise Him as our savior and Lord. Then we rejoice in the Lord always.
Jesus is the Truth and we love Him. As we love Jesus, we do the right in appreciating the truth in science, but we need to realize that we are doing it as a consequence of our love of Christ. We shall not love this world, but we shall believe that God reconciled the world with him, when Jesus died for all of us. And we have let us reconcile with Him on that basis, it is our choice and our attitude and shall continue to be.
It must be clear to us that the methods in science are different from the methods of Christianity. We can use both methods at the same time, but the knowledge that we gain from the methods of science we relate to those methods and the wisdom and belief we gain from the gospel, we relate to the methods of the gospel.
The method in the gospel is that by faith in Jesus, we let God to do His work with us by his Word and his Spirit. Then it shall make us praise God for having created everything and praise God and the Lamb for the salvation. Then we shall cultivate this earth so that she becomes fertile to us. We can do that both by studying science and modern technology and then using the technology to cultivate the earth.
The Apostle John said that Jesus is God’s Word, the Word became flesh and we saw is glory, full of mercy and truth.
JOH 1,1 – JOH 1,14 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood* it. [*Or <darkness, and the darkness has not overcome>] 6 There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. 9 The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.* [*Or <This was the true light that gives light to every man who comes into the world>] 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God – 13 children born not of natural descent,* nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. [*Greek <of bloods>] 14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,* who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. [*Or <the Only Begotten>]
1JO 1,1 – 1JO 1,5 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched – this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2 The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4 We write this to make our* joy complete. [*Some manuscripts <your>] 5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
John says that God’s Word became man and speaks of it as a physical reality, what they saw and sensed. How did they see his glory? Well, God’s Spirit came upon him and God did his work through him by his Spirit. Jesus knew that he was going to be executed and just before he formed the Eucharist and said that when they ate of the bread and drank from the wine, they should do so in memory of him, where the bread symbolized his body and the wine symbolized his blood. He had said that he was the bread that came down from heaven to give the world life, then we must eat it, so that it gives us life. He is God’s Word and we must eat it as food.
Jesus also said that he would send them the Holy Spirit and it would lead them to the whole truth, it reveals the Word for us, it reveals and glorifies Christ to us as our Savior and Lord. This is how it reminds us of Him and in this way we shall remember him, in line with what he said when he founded the Eucharist, that we should do this in memory of him. The point is that he makes God known to us, in him is life and life is the light of man, it is just to turn to him and receive in faith and be enlightened. He has gone away to make a living place for us, it is our hope and our goal that we turn to. He is the pathway to the Father and that way we go.
We no longer see Jesus as the disciples and the people saw him when he walked here on earth. Therefore, we are completely dependent on hearing the Word, reading it, believing it, and letting the Holy Spirit reveal it to us, so we get to know Him and thus we learn to know God. Then we shall remember what we learn in this way. It’s important and we need to have it clear to us that this is something completely different from remembering what we see and senses around us.
Then we should go out and talk to people and preach the gospel to them and see that he is with us every day. It is the gospel to ourselves, too, that by the grace God has given us, we will see that he is with us every day. This is neither only luxury that we will grant us when we have it well, nor is only a need that we resort to when we are int trouble, but it applies to all kinds of days. We do the right in regarding it as mandatory, but not as a new requirement for acts of law. We got the Spirit by faith in Christ, by mere grace and it is obliged for us to believe in him and receive the Spirit of mere grace. Then it is just to let the Spirit reveal God’s Word.
What we thus learn and memories is something else but what we see and sense around us. It gives us a spiritual insight and sense that can well be compared to mathematics and rationality of science, it functions well together.
But the crucial point is that Jesus gives us spirit and life from heaven and it is something completely new, both for ourselves and for the world. The curtain in God’s temple symbolized Jesus’s body, when he died it was torn in two parts. It symbolizes that with his death, he carried his own blood and his own body forth as a sacrifice for sin in the heavenly temple that God has created and made way for us. So we can go to the throne of grace and gain mercy and find grace for help in right time. We get to experience that Jesus gives us spirit and life from heaven. This is something completely new, both for us and for the world.
So what’s the probleme?
Jesus gives spirit in our bodies and lives to our souls, so the soul is in the Spirit and the Spirit in the body and then we shall let the Spirit reign in our mortal body. We obey Christ by believing in Him, so by the Spirit has given us, we make our bodies obey him. Maybe somebody will say you must win over yourself. But who wins then and who loses? It’s one and the same person. If someone starts thinking like this, it’s probably because there are others who want to reign.
The art for us is to preserve this spiritual and rational insight and this attitude to the world and her lords. Where has it gone, the boldness to acknowledge Christ as our Savior and Lord? If he is our Lord, he is the one who won over us and we understand it this way, that it is with everlasting love, he who loves us knows and understands better than ourselves what is good for us. He is at the right hand of our Father in heaven and has a far greater perspective in time and space than what we have, yes, his perspective is even to eternity.
Educated upper class?
In ancient Greece it became a very limited democracy. Socrates went out and talked to people and he believed that the truth was interned into him through such conversation and it made him happy. But people made laments against him, probably because they were corrupted, so it was the rich and “learned” upper class that was behind it. The people rebelled and demanded his execution. But Socrates himself believed that the truth made him happy enough to withstand the flames of the fire, so he did not give in. This shows that the bad nature was both in the underclass and in the upper class.
Plato called it a murder of justice and explained the eval nature of the people in this way, that they had lost much of the insight into the good idea when the sole came into the physical nature, when they came to this world. But with long-term education, they could regain much of it. Part of the training was that they were going out into the community and observing it. This alternation between insight into ideas and observing society and nature is called Plato’s dialectics. And then a learned upper class would rule with dictatorial power.
But the problem was still the bad nature, both in the underclass and the upper class. So they lacked insight, became corrupt and used lies and betrayals. And during the dictatorship of Antiokus 4 . Epiphanes it escalated. We can read about that in the prophecies, Dan.11–12 and Zechariah.11. In 1. Maccabee we can read about it as history. It also appeared through the execution of Christ and by the persecution of Christianity, then it was also prophesied about as a future problem, Matt.24, 2 . Thess.2 .
The devil is this world’s god, he is a lier and a murderer.
The devil is this world of god, he is a lier and a murderer. So that’s the central problem.
JOH 8,12 – JOH 8,59 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” 13 The Pharisees challenged him, “Here you are, appearing as your own witness; your testimony is not valid.” 14 Jesus answered, “Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid, for I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going. 15 You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one. 16 But if I do judge, my decisions are right, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me. 17 In your own Law it is written that the testimony of two men is valid. 18 I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father, who sent me.” 19 Then they asked him, “Where is your father?” “You do not know me or my Father,” Jesus replied. “If you knew me, you would know my Father also.” 20 He spoke these words while teaching in the temple area near the place where the offerings were put. Yet no one seized him, because his time had not yet come. 21 Once more Jesus said to them, “I am going away, and you will look for me, and you will die in your sin. Where I go, you cannot come.” 22 This made the Jews ask, “Will he kill himself? Is that why he says, `Where I go, you cannot come’ ?” 23 But he continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. 24 I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am [the one I claim to be],* you will indeed die in your sins.” [*Or <I am he>; also in verse 28] 25 “Who are you?” they asked. “Just what I have been claiming all along,” Jesus replied. 26 “I have much to say in judgment of you. But he who sent me is reliable, and what I have heard from him I tell the world.” 27 They did not understand that he was telling them about his Father. 28 So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am [the one I claim to be] and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me. 29 The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him.” 30 Even as he spoke, many put their faith in him. 31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants* and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?” [*Greek <seed>; also in verse 37] 34 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. 37 I know you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are ready to kill me, because you have no room for my word. 38 I am telling you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and you do what you have heard from your father.*” [*Or <presence. Therefore do what you have heard from the Father.>] 39 “Abraham is our father,” they answered. “If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would* do the things Abraham did. [*Some early manuscripts <“If you are Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then>] 40 As it is, you are determined to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. 41 You are doing the things your own father does.” “We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only Father we have is God himself.” 42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me. 43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! 46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? 47 He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.” 48 The Jews answered him, “Aren’t we right in saying that you are a Samaritan and demon-possessed?” 49 “I am not possessed by a demon,” said Jesus, “but I honor my Father and you dishonor me. 50 I am not seeking glory for myself; but there is one who seeks it, and he is the judge. 51 I tell you the truth, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death.” 52 At this the Jews exclaimed, “Now we know that you are demon-possessed! Abraham died and so did the prophets, yet you say that if anyone keeps your word, he will never taste death. 53 Are you greater than our father Abraham? He died, and so did the prophets. Who do you think you are?” 54 Jesus replied, “If I glorify myself, my glory means nothing. My Father, whom you claim as your God, is the one who glorifies me. 55 Though you do not know him, I know him. If I said I did not, I would be a liar like you, but I do know him and keep his word. 56 Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad.” 57 “You are not yet fifty years old,” the Jews said to him, “and you have seen Abraham!” 58 “I tell you the truth,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!” 59 At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds.
JOH 12,31 Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out.
JOH 14,30 I will not speak with you much longer, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold on me,
JOH 16,7 – JOH 16,11 But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8 When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt* in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment: [*Or <will expose the guilt of the world>] 9 in regard to sin, because men do not believe in me; 10 in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; 11 and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.
2KO 4,2 – 2KO 4,7 Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. 3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”* made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. [*Gen. 1: 3] 7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
In the Catholic Church it was alleged that Christ was so strict, that there was no help for men to try to come to him directly, they had to apply to the catholic saints, the priests and the pope. But it was to speculate against the Christian freedom to turn people into slaves for sale; indulgence trade. They lost their freedom and became slaves, in fact they got a stricter master who drove them harder. In is like what was said about the Incompetent Shepherd and the Lawless (Zach.11, 2.Thess.2).
It was claimed that Christ was so strict, but the Pope would give them a better alternative, as if Christ and his work of salvation was not good enough?! It is reminiscent of the worm that asked the woman if God didn’t let them eat of any of the trees in the garden, trying to give her the impression that they missed something in life. She answered right, but then the worm tried to tell her that he had a better alternative to them and managed to seduce her.
Humans try to get a good life and are happy to work for it, but this seduction in which they try to make themselves like God results in that they get the task of doing God’s work, but that is impossible for them. That’s how they become slaves. The Incompetent Shepherd guarded the sheep to be slaughtered and those who sold them became rich. That’s also how the Pope also functioned with the indulgence trade.
The rebellion against Christ.
The Bible teaches that the man should know how to find an win his own wife in sanctification. How does it go when the children grow up and start to get independent, a boy want to find a girlfriend and a wife? Let’s say a young man begins to fall in love with a young girl and acknowledging his faith in Jesus for her and wanting to talk to her. By acknowledging his faith in Jesus for her, with a vision to get a girlfriend and a wife, to propose to her. Then they will not allow it, they will not let him meet her again and talk to her or have anything more to do with her. And that attitude they make religion and politics out of. This has been demonstrated by the so-called women’s liberation and gender equality policy. The women are seduced as in the fall of sin on new or as a continuation of it.
The man who would win himself a wife in sanctification has been squeezed out to make room for the Lawless one, so he could insert himself into the temple and make himself god. But in this way the Holy Spirit also was squeezed out, so the Lawless has his power from the Devil.
2TE 2,1 – 2TE 2,17 Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers, 2 not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. 3 Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness* is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. [*Some manuscripts <sin>] 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God. 5 Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, 10 and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. 13 But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because from the beginning God chose you* to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. [*Some manuscripts <because God chose you as his firstfruits>] 14 He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15 So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings* we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. [*Or <traditions>] 16 May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
The temple was demolished, but we meet the same problem in the church. Moreover, we must bear in mind that the body is a temple to the Holy Spirit. The problem and the point is that the Lawless are trying to gain power in the human body. The Devil tries seduce the woman and use her to entice the man, to gain power over them with sin.
The Great Whore.
The woman featured in Revelation.17-18 was surely originally God’s wife, but she became a whore who did infidelity with the kings around the world, so that she no longer had God as her husband. For she was seduced by the fall of sin. And I understand that’s the problem the young man faces when he will try to find himself a wife. It becomes apparent when he believes in Jesus and will try to find himself wife in a holy way. Then they try to deceive him and seduce her in the way of the fall of sin, to gain power over her, and then they use her to entice him, to try to gain power over him too.
The man was sentenced to death on the occasion of the fall of sin. But the gospel is that Christ died instead of us. So what’s the point of denying him? It is that the man shall die because og event of the fall of sin. Their animosity towards the Norwegian man is like this and thus against the Norwegian people. And it turns out in politics that they are trying to replace the Norwegian people. The politics is like a woman doing adultery with the kings around the world and blame it on the Norwegian man according to the fall of sin.
For the devil is this world’s god, he is a liar and the father of Lying, the gods made of sticks and stone are the Lies.
ÅPE 18,1 – ÅPE 18,5 After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. 2 With a mighty voice he shouted: “Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil* spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird. [*Greek <unclean>] 3 For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.” 4 Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; 5 for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes.
ÅPE 18,24 In her was found the blood of prophets and of the saints, and of all who have been killed on the earth.”
Realist who believes in Jesus. What’s the problem?
I have been a realist who believes in Jesus since I was a boy, at times I have felt it as a dual role I have not been entirely comfortable with, but as I let myself to reconcile with God on the foundation of the gospel, it may work well and makes sense, so I get harmony between body and soul, heart and brain. The lovely relationship between man and woman has a natural purpose, it can be found in the Bible as well. But in the fait in Jesus we get an overall meaning in life that also apply to the lovely relationship between man and woman, giving marriage a wider meaning. Jesus is the life and to live for him gives meaning in life.
Since I was young I have asked Jesus to save men and women and give me a saved woman to wife. And I find it strange that I get so much resistance both from those who call themselves Christians and those who do not, those who consider themselves secular. It is also a natural matter and should not be so strange or mysterious from a scientific point of view. But it seems that even many of those who consider themselves to think scientifically, also are against it as if it were not in accordance with science, as if it contradict science. But what happens on the contrary is that it results in something that opposes science. And why?
God loves his children and cares for them as his children and so he cares for the work of his hands. The resistance to this comes not really from real science interests, but from the belief of a false god. He was called Zeus, but really it was the Devil. He is the Lier and the father of Lie, the gods made of sticks and stone are the Lies. He is the cause of the bad nature. It is alleged that the physical and biological nature of the human being is eval, especially on the occasion of the sex drive. Then they conclude that it is wrong, but thus it tends to become more wrong. Then they replace the heart circumcision in the Spirit with a circumcision that is essentially to be hurt. But they do not understand that the mistake was that they had their joy in the injustice instead of believing in Jesus and loving the truth, so that they could be saved. Therefore, they conclude that the love affair between man and woman is something bad. It’s “the dark-man’s culture” and “the evil one” is behind it.
The dialectic and the alienation.
Empirism and liberalism became a disaster for the pietist Immanuel Kant, so he concluded that the rationality of the church does not exist. He developed his transcendental philosophy. Philosophy that lies above the phenomena and the sensuous world is called transcendental. In the scholastic it was used about what lies above and outside the categories that Aristotle has lined up for nature. He is called the father of logic, but the mistake he did, was that he applied it to the visible nature instead of applying it to the ideas. Kant had a transendental logic, which he divided into a transendental analytical and a transendental dialectic.
But Kant’s transcendental philosophy still comes too short, compared to the rationality of science and evangelical Christianity. Did he understand that the new science was hypothetical deductive? What did he mean by “ausheben”, was it to nullify a statement, by making it invalid or was it to exalt it, like making a hypothesis to theory? But we don’t reason for either hypothesis or theory, we just make a hypothesis, it’s just making a suggestion and then we try it. We deduce something from it, then we reason and then we try it, If not the samples disprove it, it’ll be theory. The logic we learn in science is clear and unambiguous. We still use it in mathematics and computer science. I have often wondered how so many can clearly violate such basic logic in their conversation with others and in articles that they publish. It started already with Aristotle himself and was further developed by Kant, Hegel, Marx …. .
Hegel spoke of a dialectical transformation between master and jack, it would result in an intersubjective Time Spirit that would bring the history forward. Despite being a priest, God and the individual had little and no place in the development.
Marx added a dialectical transformation between the jack and the physical nature and there the ordinary worker became important. In the production processes, the physical nature is transformed and physical power is applied to it, to shape it. But what becomes so strange here is that the transformation of humans is discussed in the same way, as if power must be applied to the humans, in order to train it and reshape it!!?? The assignment is even given to the workers as a job in addition to what the work really all about.
But what’s the real problem? Man is enticed that if they ate off the tree of knowledge, they should become somehow god and know good and eval. But then they took the assignment of doing god’s work, but they couldn’t possibly do it. That’s how they became slaves. According to Marx the rationalization made the worker a small piece in the machinery, which did the same routine job over and over again. So he became alien to the product he helped produce and no longer understood how it came about. He became an alien to his own product and the entire manufacturing process. Marx argues that the products became idols to the worker, by comparison with the idols made of sticks and stone, so he became a slave for such idols. But through class struggle, he would then try to free himself from that bondage.
Aristotle is called the logic father, but his mistake was that he applied the logic directly to the physical things instead of applying it to the ideas. Since Kant claimed that the church’s rationality did not exist, it became nearby that he would do so, too, so it seems that he laid it up with his form of logic and dialectic and with the meaning he put in the word “ausheben”. It is now clear that this was how it worked with the dialectics of Hegel and Marx. Thus the alienation of Marx, is in fact due to the wrong logic that was used on visible things instead of ideas, so that the people became alien to the ideas behind the production process, it is the wrong logic in the dialectics that results in alienation. They no longer realized how to use the right logic on the ideas, to explain how things have come to bee, how society has been built up and how it thus develops. They have become strangers to the God and his Word and no longer understand that it is he who does his work.
Humans become strangers to themselves, too. The struggle with women’s liberation unfolds as the body fights against the soul and that contradiction makes humans sick. Again, it results in humans becoming so alien to themselves, that they no longer understand to take their own interests, but on the contrary fights against their own interests. The worker is fooled into fighting himself. The man becomes alien to the woman and she becomes alien to him, so they no longer understand their common interests, they are no longer able to attend to their common interests. It turns out like they become disabled in many mays, even tough there is no real reason for it. Why? Because of lack of faith.
The blessing or the curse.
Traditionally, priests have said the blessing in the church. And Jesus said he would make me a conduit channel for his blessing and then he sent me with his liberating message; Jesus is the truth that sets us free, he is the head of the man and the man is the head of the woman, so he is the head of the church that is his bride. I should bring the message of recovery, because on the foundation of the gospel, our relationship becomes restored as it was before the fall of sin, but now Christ is the last Adam, who for us has become a life-giving Spirit. God creates us in Christ, then he still creates us in accordance with 1. Mos.2, for he is the same now.
Then it is essential for me to believe in Christ and love Him, turn to Him and bless Him, in this way I am blessed, thus I become a blessing. Thus, I open myself for the blessing and open myself as a conduit channel for it, so I become a blessing to others. I’ve written a lot about this, but I don’t really know the range of it. The temple and the Christian Church shall be the conduit for God’s blessing as we see in Ezekiel47. And then we shall remember that the temple is a symbol of the human body.
JOH 7,37 – JOH 7,39 On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as* the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” [*[37, 38] Or ¦ <If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me. ¦ And let him drink,  who believes in me. ¦ As>] 39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.
Abraham believed God and God declared him righteous. In him, all nations should be blessed. That promise is fulfilled in Christ. All who received him he gave the right to become children of God. God loved the world so much, that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father without him. But when we go that path, we come to our Father’s House and then we experience that the Father loves us and cares for us as his children. Christ is our high priest and advocate by the Father, who speaks for us in our case and takes care of our interests. So that we can come to the Father with all our needs and he cares for us as his children.
Jesus is the king of kings, so then a people can expect their king to take their interests. We may very well say that this will be safer in a democracy. But in Norway, the past few decades it ha turned out to be strong political, economic and religious interests that are struggling against it. And it is so clearly connected with opposition to the evangelical preaching. Paul taught that if someone preaches a gospel other than what he has preached, he shall be cursed. But for the past forty-fifty years, people have been protesting against his teachings and then they come with something else instead. In fact the priests say the curse instead of the blessing and so do the people themselves, they curse each other and themselves and so do the politicians. It turns out that they no longer take care the interests of the people as we would expect, especially in a democracy.
How is that possible? The politicians and the journalists are so cunning and eloquent that they tell the people to go to hell and perform to say it in such a nice way that they look forward to go to hell. They have so much to entice with, which is trickery. But the worst thing is that they lures with a false gospel.
The class struggle was intended to safeguard the interests of the workers, but with the liberation of women and the so-called equality policy, it has instead become the struggle against the interests of the man. And when through politics they’re supposed to look after his interests, it’s false, they pretened as they represent him, but then in a stupid way. But they don’t really represent him, because they’re corrupt.
The CO2 tax and climate policy.
I have asked God to give me a saved woman to wife since I was young and I still think he will give me that. And it has a purpose. The man’s mission is still to cultivate and protect God’s garden and that is what his wife should help him with. But it has not yet come true. For the trend in the Spirit of Time is to deny the Father and the Son, that is the Antichrist. Since they do not believe in the gospel of Christ, I also do not believe in their alternative. The CO2 tax is like a post-modern form of indulgence trading. The belief that they should protect the environment and save the world with their climate policy is like believing in a false god with a false messiah.
A few years ago, in a newspaper article, they were talking about the drought problem in East Africa and it was concluded that they needed to speed up the Paris climate talks so they could get rain. It’s amazing, then, that journalists can be as foolish after the “enlightenment” as they brag about. This is then like asking the gods for rain and in this case it is so clear the authorities who are the gods who shall answer their prayers.
But what is it needed? That the man works to cultivate the soil, digs wells and waters the soil, sow seed, plant plants and then harwest for the good of himself and his own family. But the problem is that with the moral philosophy of the “gods”, this is regarded as eval.
For example, it can be argued based on the morality of women’s liberation and equality policy. What has it meant to me? Well, when I needed help in the form of a wife, the woman on the contrary should oppose me. For the purpose and meaning that the Devil had with the love affair between man and woman was to do eval and that we see in Norwegian politics.
Christianity and science are fundamental to our civilization, but humans are becoming so alienised that they do not understand it. Then there’s danger.
Through Christianity we become convinced of what is right and true, with christian method. In real science we become convinced of what is right and true with the methods of real science. And those methods have in common that it is not by the use of physical force, to force people. But the devil’s method is to lie and kill, he puts power behind the Lie and reigns by death. But Christ prevailed over him with his death on the cross.
HEB 2,12 – HEB 2,15 He says, “I will declare your name to my brothers; in the presence of the congregation I will sing your praises.”* [*Psalm 22: 22] 13 And again, “I will put my trust in him.”* And again he says, “Here am I, and the children God has given me.”+ [*Isaiah 8: 17] [+Isaiah 8: 18] 14 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death – that is, the devil – 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.
By enlightening by God’s Word and the development of science, we have got progressed and development, new technologies have been developed and produced a lot of useful things. By the rationality that has been used, we understand how it came to be, we understand how our civilization has arised and we do right to honor and thank the Father and the Son for it.
But in our time the “Time-spirit” makes the people alienized to how the western civilization has com to bee, mainly because the get alienized to God. They no longer understand how the valuables have come to be, that it is through the use of the rationality of the sciences. They have become strangers to the rationality of God’s Word, so they no longer understand how we and our civilization have come to be. They are seduced by a moral philosophy that is like the fruit of the tree of knowledge (Genesis.3). So they no longer realize that God is love and they need him in the lovely relationship between man and woman as well. With that moral philosophy, the woman denies Christ and protests against Paul’s doctrine that Christ is the head of the man and the man is the head of the woman and in this way Christ is the head of the church that is his bride.
The man should cultivate and protect God’s garden. Yes, he had a body made of soil from the field and with it he would cultivate the earth, so it became fertile. But the eval one causes complaining against him, claiming that the physical body is eval, so it is eval that he grows the earth and makes it fertile.
But it is rather the moral philosophy, reasoning and “logic” that is stupid and eval. If we have accepted the grace that God gives us in Christ, we should know better now. The woman denies Christ, what is the alternative, what remains? Antichrist. The devil as this world’s god has given her a different assignment than to help her husband and it is on the contrary to oppose him.
