In my hopefully prophetic writing this, I put Jesus' parable about "the lost / återvunne son" (Luke 15) as an illustrative background, an afterimage of the previous century-old events.
But you can also turn it around and say that I also tend parable based on the time when Jesus presented it as a model for the then upcoming events. We must just keep in mind that all the illustrations are incomplete. They do not have anything, and they can lead into more tracks than the moment meant. And when the question of the Bible / God's word, at these prophetic texts loaded in and out, up and down, on and off of the 66 books. Therefore, to read the Bible in the Holy Spirit's anointing is the safest way to arrive at an understanding of the scriptures, as the Spirit gives life to the letters and language sets. (2 Cor 3: 6)
In my text I touch the Fall rendered by angels in the "förhimmelska" and its equivalent in the Garden of Eden of the people. But also stresses the salvation of people through Jesus the forgiveness of sin, especially the rescue as a return "home" to God. Chapter title for Luke 15: 11And verses forward, depending on the translations given various points over the centuries. The parable can be referred to: "the prodigal son", but as well as "the prodigal son". The chapter division, 1, 2, 3, etc., came about after not until 1228 in our time - through the English theologian Stephen Lang's auspices. The biblical books manuscripts, neither metered chapters with headings and verse divisions.
It is the Bible a profound cause of the spiritual / religious quest among people. Originally, the man (1 Genesis 1-2) really a seeker of divinity, since the first human couple, Adam and Eve lived in an innocent and obvious relationship with God their creator in the physical Garden of Eden sacred - a separate and distinct part of the kingdom of God but with significant celestial glory. Adam and Eve could and did eat of every tree of the garden, including the "tree of life", but the tree of knowledge "of good and evil", God had forbidden them to eat and did not even touch. If they ate of that tree they would die both spiritual and corporeal sense; "Death die" (1 Gen. 2:16); die "the second death" (21: 8).
It sought not then and spiritual / religious from any direction, either from Adam and Eve's side to God or from God's side to them, which is not needed in that they were together in the garden. The belief in them was akin to trust the Creator for his care and closeness to them. Humanly speaking, in much a similar way as in a good family relationship. You know where you belong. Thinking for illustrative purposes of how "the lost / prodigal son" had it before he went away from home. There, in the home environment, he had all the security had decent hot father fellowship, good food, nice clothes, a lot of freedom and fresh air. However, property inheritance that lay waiting for him to come seem to have begun to attract him. They even "forbidden" money, was a strong temptation. Displeased, perhaps jealous of his older brother, he wanted removed to total freedom to experience the "world" outside, and to achieve greater "success" than at home on the farm. Possibly, he conceited and arrogant off to such an intention. Fall which can be attributed to him, is that he is the "advance" called out its part of the joint "son's inheritance" of the father - who let the younger son's free will stand: "Father, give me my share of the estate. Then he divided his property between them. Shortly after the younger son packed up all his and went far away to a foreign country. " give me my share of the estate. Then he divided his property between them. Shortly after the younger son packed up all his and went far away to a foreign country. " give me my share of the estate. Then he divided his property between them. Shortly after the younger son packed up all his and went far away to a foreign country. "
Fall in the Garden
Return to the garden of Eden and the fall there (Numbers 3 1). When the human pair fell for the Tempter's words, took of the fruit of the forbidden tree and ate, in order to "be like God, knowing good from evil," was performed for the first one humanly priceless crime against God. Which in turn meant that, to use the imagery of a man insurmountable gap or impenetrable wall arose between her and God. Mankind lost by the unacceptable conduct; the naughty step, both its harmonious relationship with God - and came to the side of his plane with her as a human being in time and of empowerment with him. A "miscarriage", a "divorce" with - just as it happened - unforeseen negative consequences for the human race.
The breach affected Adam and Eve to both the spirit, mind and body. Everything was in a sense fatally clouded, noise and sickly. The Hebrew word Chat (corresponding word in Greek is hamartia), sin in Swedish, hit with full force right into humanity. Both ethics (from the Greek. Ethos, theoretical reflection) and morale (of lat. Moral, as in an act) - (ethics can be called moral internal compass) - received the "damage", bad habits, addictions, abuse, that could not heal themselves. Pain, wear and enmity would in many respects be the lot of man. The waste is made all creation and burst and was difficult "boils" and "wounds". The air vibrated with lies, deceit, evil, guilt, anxiety, applicant, stress, resistance, distance, loneliness, demonized and captivity. The bottom line was slavery "of corruption"
Time to figuratively - in for repair - compared to "the lost / prodigal son" negative experience and poor decisions in the "foreign country". Life in the new had certainly begun on - that can be imagined to: a fantastic, fun, beautiful and arrogant way. But it was apparent, and did not last long: "There, he led a dissolute life and squandered everything he owned." On the following "famine", with social exclusion, which forced him to take the service of a pig owners. The pigs he had to guard and live among, can even symbolize demons activity. We read, for example, Mark 5: 12-13 about how the evil spirits wished to go into a herd of pigs near when Jesus would like to drive them out of the man they possessed. A desire Jesus, but also approved, much like the spirits belonged to pigs. They are of course several places in the Bible that show pigs and pig behavior, to describe the filth in the spiritual sense. The smell seems far away.
LISTS OF SINS
When the human pair fell for the "Serpent" temptation, they came and we in the generations after being bound, carriers and met the temptation sought. For example, pride, envy, flattery, falsehood, whitewash, lie, bitterness, seduction, defamation, hedonism, immorality, abnormality, power, repression, evil and the occult. This was mixed up with a search for the loss of God and the lost Paradise. The relationship was "without hope and without God in the world." (Ephesians 2:12) The Bible shows up many places on acts performed by people because of the Fall, and the terms a considerable amount characteristics of halyard resulting effect. In Galatians 5: 19-21, it is printed in list form: "works of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, orgies, idolatry, occultism, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, själiskhet, schisms, heresies, malice, drunkenness, wild parties, and such. I tell you in advance what I have already said: those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. "
Romans 1: 29-32 cataloging: "They have become filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, and malice, they are full of envy, murder, debate, deceit and malice. The gossip and slander, they hate God and violent. The declaims and brag, they are ingenious in evil and disobedient to parents, senseless, faithless, unloving and heartless. They are well aware of God's righteous decree that those who act in this way deserve death. Yet they do so, and they also agree that others do it. "So terribly and hopelessly bad it was, and so bad is it, based on Adam and Eve's fall from grace in the Garden of Eden - tempted to break as they were by the serpent. How far into the subject, I still want to do the extension, to the biblical Christian faith, there is room for the human shortcomings of the believers, in the sense that our High Priest, Jesus,
SNAKE IN PARADISE
Who was the serpent that deceived Adam and Eve in Paradise? - Well, then we go back to the events that are ahead "clock time" that took place some punch in the heavenly places. In Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28, made the one at-pervading and radiant angel falls into sin and rise up against God. It says, among other things to read that his tambourines and flutes were adorned "with gold". But he is not satisfied with his position as chief "protector" of the heavenly, but want a megalomaniac higher up in power - until he sits as king on "gudaförsamlingens mountain". What a fall from grace could happen in the heavenly Bible gives us no answer. But it was a defilement of the sacred celestial sphere - how strange and mysterious as it may seem - that needed to be restored by treatment of Jesus' pour-na sacrificial blood,
Angelic world was drawn into being in a position to choose between him and God. And then it appears that a third of the host of heaven chose to stand on God's adversaries (Rev 12: 4). Before egofulle cherub crime against God, there existed no competition or two poles to take the decision in faith. Faith did not exist as a phenomenon. Father, Son and the angels were together in holiness and glory without a special assignment at each other between them. There was nothing for or against the divine abodes. No, the heavenly went without any connection to what can be described as spirituality or religion. No applicant for, or after one or the other was up to date.
But that takes pride crime of Lucifer. Thus, the model of the Fall in the Garden of Eden "created" the one who tempted Adam and Eve - thus sin archetype. The thing that stood out with Adam and Eve in their minds for the waste, and that the human race came to be different characteristics of sin afterwards - was first of all the pieces of the angelic prince Lucifer. In the garden was thus a copy of something that happened before, like a mirror image. Furthermore, Jesus is expressed as follows in John 10:10 God's enemy: "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy." Today is abortion, sex changes and euthanasia was that human rights actions made in medical science and humanism name, in attempt to influence the development so that it interacts with the assigned name of "evolution". The / the lobby strongest wins.
And this will probably be tied in with what Jesus spoke in John 8:44 about Fien-on: "He was a murderer from the beginning and has never stood on the truth si-da, for there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks outside himself, for he is a liar and the father of lies. "In 1 John 3: 8 reads:" The devil has been sinning from the beginning. " The reader should not be using the Bible different texts to find out how it came to be "light bearer," the brightest cherub among all the angelic beings in the heavenly world, could be filled with sin in thoughts and deeds - eg such as murder and lies. You can think of this and hold talks in words and writing about it. But not speculate so wildly that it leads to conflict with the Bible's silence on the subject.
Underlying causes of the serpent's side, he tempted Adam and Eve to sin - both have been revenge for his Lucifer was deprived of his mighty glory of the Godhead, and anger that he was thrown out and down from the heaven because of their rebellion. Which meant that he apparently underwent transformation / curse to be "snake". But also think of this in several unsavory name and concept of the Bible presents him as: dragon, Satan the Devil, Beelzebub, Leviathan, enemy, adversary, opponent, the wolf and the stranger. New names have been coined in the various occult-religious societies and mythologies throughout history. For example: Marduk, Zeus, Samhain, Ahriman, The pig, Shame, the devil and the devil.
Given the serpent hated everything that God created and made. Naturally angelic prince Michael. Michael led ejecting him from heaven: "And there was battle in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. And the dragon fought and his angels, but he was not strong enough, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven "(Revelation 12: 7-8). The snake hated the garden and the human couple, of course. But most especially, he was driven by jealousy of the Son, and had made him his hatiske enemy and adversary. Perhaps he senses here already that there will be new meetings with the Son of God eventually, more defeat in more tvekamper. We are sitting with hindsight feel including to his loss when he gave himself to tempt Jesus in the wilderness. Revelation 13: 8 gives us of Jesus (eg Hedegårds translation): "the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world". Here we have some same writing of Revelation, but with breathtaking perspectives between: On the one hand thus: The devil has been "a murderer" from the beginning, a sinner "from the beginning". On the other hand, when God's son is slain "from the foundation of the world".
Again, we'll take it easy with the interpretation of these texts, when pondering over in any dimension or time, which apply to the terms "beginning", "from the beginning", "from the foundation of the world". They can thus be about a time when God's creation of the earth has not yet been, or has to do with the situation at the earth and the physical creation of Paradise. That we can be pretty sure of is that the "slaughter" case of prophecy, then invisible fulfilled, but on the cross of Calvary visibly fulfilled. Anyway in 1 Gen 3:15 God sets Serpent facing a forthcoming fact: "He (my son) will crush your head and you will strike his heel." In Revelation 12:12 it reads: "Rejoice therefore, O heavens and you who live in them! But woe to the earth and to the sea, for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that his time is short. "Martin Luther sang and played in 1529 for the first time its true fictional hymn," A Mighty Fortress Is Our God "(No. 237 in the Swedish hymnal):" Prince of Darkness descends threatening and angry, he is preparing förvisst with violence and argan drop ... "it seems almost like the son of God in his holy assignment, to the spiritual fight with the fallen great angel in heaven, and the consequences of sin for the future of mankind, who would follow in the wake of the departure - had already allowed himself invisibly and prophetically "killed"; the Son, the Lamb is already at Lucifer's battle losses in the sky. he is preparing förvisst with violence and argan strip ... "It seems almost like the son of God in his holy assignment, to the spiritual fight with the fallen great angel in heaven, and the consequences of sin for the future of mankind, who would follow in the wake of the departure - already had made himself invisible and prophetic "slaughtered"; the Son, the Lamb is already at Lucifer's battle losses in the sky. he is preparing förvisst with violence and argan strip ... "It seems almost like the son of God in his holy assignment, to the spiritual fight with the fallen great angel in heaven, and the consequences of sin for the future of mankind, who would follow in the wake of the departure - already had made himself invisible and prophetic "slaughtered"; the Son, the Lamb is already at Lucifer's battle losses in the sky.
Lucifer is undergoing and choose as the "heavenly" Ormväsendet, four lending and nedkastanden or bortgåenden - with increased defeat for each "step":
1. Get out of the sky as the fallen angel "Lucifer": "And the great dragon, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, and that entices the whole world, was thrown down to earth, and his angels were thrown down with him." ( 12: 9)
2. As the snake out of the earthly paradise (visible part of the kingdom of God, but with heavenly glory) - probably while Adam and Eve were excluded from it. 3. From the position of Prosecutor / Satan to God (somewhere in the celestial regions) the man of God, Job (2: 7): "And the prosecutor / Satan walked away from the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of the foot unto his crown." This accusation was of Up 12:10 commonplace: "accuser of our brethren has been cast down, which day and night accused them before our God." Thus, "Simon, Simon! Satan asked (obtained either, other trans.) To sift you as wheat. "(Luke 22:31)" Your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he can devour. "(1 Peter 5: 8) "Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light." (2 Corinthians 11:14) 4. to hell (Revelation 20:10)
Note that Jesus also is involved in four stages, the total opposites, by the resurrection from the dead, with a growing victory and glory for each level:
1. Up from the grave (hades) after he was in the Spirit had preached his victory at Calvary where (1 Peter 3:19). 2. raised from the dead, and out of the grave: "Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices, yes, even my body will rest in the hope that you will not leave me in the grave or let your Holy One to see corruption." (Acts 2:27). 3. Up to the Father for the glorification before anyone got to him, "Jesus said to her (Mary Magdalene):'Rör not touch me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and tell them, I ascend unto my Father and your Father, to my God and your Gud.' "). (John 20:17), early in the evening the same day shows the magnified Jesus for disciples locked themselves for fear of Jews (20:19). There, he shows them both their sårmärkta hands and feet, and his pierced side. Here there was no question that they should not touch him. And eight days later, Jesus invited the disciple Thomas to put his finger in his hands and in his side (20:27). 4. The ascension to the Father's side: "He led them (the disciples) out to Bethany, and he lifted his hands and blessed them." (Luke 24:50) "Since Jesus had spoken to them, he was received up into heaven, and sat at the right hand of God. "(Mk.16: 19)
Heard and saw
With its prominent selfish and evil traits seem suddenly snake in the "underground" Garden of Eden. And notice that Adam and Eve were both heard and saw the snake. Actually both spoke and it was an upright position. The language used in Paradise, we do not know the Bible. It may have been a special "paradise language" died out gradually. One among the language perhaps, like as it says in 1 Corinthians 13: 1: "If I speak with men and of angels." But it has also expressed opinions that it was a kind of predecessor language to the next Hebrew language to the Jewish people as defendants, which could have become a reality (or bestowed by God) by Noah's son Shem (Semites), his son Eber (Hebrews ), then the Sixth point later Abraham, his son Isaac, his son Jacob (Israel),
In this context it is also interesting to observe that after the Flood of Noah's day all spoke on earth one and the same language (1 Gen. 11). When God confounded the languages, because of the people building the Tower of Babel, so that no one understood the other, was the location for the emergence of the Hebrew language. Another thought the opportunity with regard to the inception of the Hebrew, has not given name Eber (Heb. Ibrim) to do without the location Hebron (Heb. Ivrit) that Abram arrived in the land of Canaan. Within Orthodox Judaism Hebrew classed as sacred. Even evangelical Christians want love to Hebrew in that direction.
It has been ventilated back and forth within Christianity about Satan understand when we are in the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues (Greek. Glossolalia). The question can not get a clear answer. The Bible describes it true that "we talk secrets," speaking in tongues is interpreted by the Holy Spirit of God. As it says in 1 Corinthians 14: 2: "He who speaks in tongues does not speak to men but to God. Nobody understands him when his spirit speaks secrets. "Furthermore, Romans 8: 26-27" So the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we know not what we should pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with sighs without words, and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit prays for the saints, as God wills. "
But while we do not talk away the fact that there can be false tongues. It can be, and is usually the same as, the Christian confessors allow selfishness to control speech in tongues. But obviously can also demonic forces take over the speaking in tongues, if there is backsliding with nonchalance, with carelessness and play as a result. Occultist speaks "in tongues" in nature religions, Satanists do, new-age people do it. Yes, even in the great religions of Taoism, Buddhism and Hinduism, there. This occurs under demonic influence. It is probably not completely taken out of the air, it could have gone the like of Baal-prophets on Mount Carmel in their fight against God's prophet Elijah: "When it was afternoon, they were seized by the (occult, my note.) Prophetic rage and held on until it was time for the grain offering. "(1 Kings 18:
The moment the evil appeared in the Garden of Eden at the tree of knowledge of good and evil, he was not only snake in a spiritual definite shape, snake, but he took and also made use of a physical serpent in the animal kingdom. Lucifer, Satan, the devil, the dragon, Leviathan, appeared in the guise of a serpent, but with the addition: he had an upright posture. Something that probably made it easier for Adam and Eve to be tempted. Then God can deal with the serpent, the intake and in the guise of a serpent, read the text in 1 Genesis 3:14: "Then said the Lord God to the serpent'Eftersom you have done this, you'll be cursed above all cattle, and wild animal. Upon thy belly shall thou go, and earth should you eat as long as you lever.' "Like a passage of the" reverb "perhaps, the King Cobra can grow up to six meters long and get up to a third of its length. Snake Charmer aims to snakes will rise up. In eastern spirituality exists a remarkable yoga experience - Kundaliniormen. A spiritual snake means ihopslingrad lie down at the anus of the human being. During meditation, the snake can be made to ride on it, and begin to move upward in the meditating and follow along the spine through a spiritual channel system, called meridians. Popular but dangerous meditations, I declare.
It was hardly easier for the human pair not to succumb to the tempter, then the snakelike spoke. Whether there was a capacity for animals and people through the language to communicate with each other in Paradise, we can from the context or the Bible not otherwise be told. Admittedly spoke a donkey later in the biblical story of the prophet Balaam, who passed the road of betrayal against Israel (4 Exodus 22). But verse 28 says: "Then the Lord opened the mouth of the ass, and she said to Balaam'Vad have I done to you, because you three times beaten me?" Balaam answered the donkey, 'You've made a fool of me! If I had a sword in my hand, I would now have killed dig.' The donkey said to Balaam, 'Is not I thine ass, you ridden all your life to this day? And have I ever used to do that to you? "He replied:'Nej.'"
How it is with language capability in the future peace of the kingdom of Israel, in the relationship between people and animals, we get no clear paper. But according to Isaiah 11: 8, the following us almost improbable relationship to become a reality: "An infant will play at the adder holes, a weaned child reach out to poison the snake's eye." One night in a village in Uganda in 1992, I woke up in room pitch darkness of it was heard excited voices and types of land outside my door. As it soon calmed down, I decided to try and go back to sleep. In the morning, I learned that night the guards using their flashlights had discovered that a very poisonous snake was going into my room through an opening at the bottom of the door sill. I have the snake on the image slain.
Well, in their search assignment to the snake as a man in their lives - and the reality of sin, suddenly discovers Adam and Eve that they are "naked". Something crucial negative has occurred at all levels, to their spirit, mind and body. Even where they are physically ready for sexual intercourse, which would lead to the propagation of the human race. But this sensual and intimate appear to have been protected by a kind of holiness and glory of God, as the example we read in 1 Genesis 2:25: "Both the man and the woman were naked, and they felt no shame before each other." Adam and Eve time to hide from God in the Garden of Eden, before it can be called that spiritual / religious seekers arises. And it is God who begins: "But the Lord God called to the man and said to him:'Var are you? '."
Although Adam and Eve came before God, so they referred only to the hiding of shame because being naked - and then blamed the fall on each other and of having been deceived by the serpent to it. God gave them coats of skins so that they could conceal their physical nakedness, meant not so that they immediately abandoned any "protection" for their spiritual nakedness. But the fact is that the fall resulted in a triple nudity. All of them became "naked", stripped, bound, empty and alone. The sequence ends with God "sent away" Adam and Eve from Eden and put änglakeruber "in the east" to guard the way to the tree of life. Probably to prevent and protect the now sin prone people from entering and accessing the tree of life, eat its fruit and live forever - but with unforgiven sins. Now put the spiritual / religious quest started with full intensity. For the first humans was to try to find their way back to God that they lost their Community. And by God's direction was not over. No, now he began the songs of great deeds. A Bible section was therefore read: "The Lord looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God." (Psalm 14: 2)
At the same time that Adam and Eve may leave Paradise, winds or crawls also snake out. He went in but crawled out. But that does not mean that he disappeared from the creation of God or mankind. Perhaps became evil reptilian (of lat. REPTILIS, "creeping") expelled from Paradise slightly before the human pair, and was waiting for them outside of their malice and with new temptations. Paul writes a warning to the Corinthians (2 11: 3): "But I am afraid that as the serpent by his cunning deceived Eve, so should your minds should be corrupted turned away from the microscope true and pure devotion to Christ."
It is at this point that the great spiritual quest arises for mankind. Longing for the "lost paradise" for full communion with God again, and God's lasting effects in humans, was found in the future, for example, Ecclesiastes with the words (3:11): "Also eternity, he has put in the hearts of men. Yet they can not understand the work of God, from the beginning to the end. "
The amount religions, with or without direct occult elements, waiting for Adam and Eve when they come out of Paradise pastures. "Doctrines of demons" (1 Tim 4: 1), errors of various types, that came off "port" east out stand cats and dogs. Their first son, Cain religious seekers, were false to God, influenced as he was by the serpent he let himself be fooled to sacrifice to God in an erroneous and egotrippat way. When his younger brother Abel delivers its offering to God, as was done in the belief in God, and was conducted in a true and humble way. The result was that God accepted Abel's sacrifice but not Cain's, which in turn led to Cain in his evil transfer slew his brother. In 1 John 3:12 is this incident up as a particular example, that is not to be like Cain, "which was the evil one child and murdered his brother. And why Cain murdered him? Yes,
As the parable of the lost / prodigal son carried as a post Illustration - one for cooking - to the fall in the Garden of Eden and the corollary of that, it can be said that the son was drawn into a "dissolute life and squandered his possessions." On it followed that he, as a severe famine came over the land, gave himself and sinker as a slave to a pig owners there, to at least get something to eat, but not even the pig food, he was taking. Swine owner, who is also the slave driver, is that the image point akin to Beelzebub, "the prince of demons (pigs, my note.)" (Matthew 12:24).
SEARCH salvation of the Lord
In this spiritual reality is also, we as people today. May we in the elections between the villoläriga and truth, between good and evil, between sin and righteousness - choose good, choose the right, select it now. Do not turn to atheism, evolutionism, humanism and occultism. But seek only the Lord, the Creator and Savior true and loving "face": "Those who seek me they find me." (Proverbs 8:17) "Those who seek the Lord they understand everything." (Proverbs 28: 5) "Search first his kingdom and his righteousness. "(Matthew 6:33)" tax collectors and sinners made their way to Jesus. "(Luke 15.1)" Search me, you get to live. "(Amos 5: 4)" the Lord is good to the soul seeking him. "" He rewards those who seek him. "(Hebrews 11: 6)
I conclude by determining in accordance with the Bible, that where sin abounds, where the flow of God frälsningsnåd even more. Fall and its consequences are terrible and profound. But forgiveness works through the Son, the Lord Jesus, is wonderful and even more depth to their design and intention. The case was big, but the restoration is greater, the greater is he. "The truth (Jesus) shall make you free." (John 8:32) "If the Son makes you free, you are truly free." (John 8:36) "In Him we have redemption (from evil) and has the forgiveness of our sins. "(Colossians 1:14) Jesus has become" our righteousness "(1 Cor 1:30) before God.
God's forgiveness and reconciliation with him at the man's conversion, takes place directly at the prayer in Jesus' name on it: Welcome home, in other words! Power of the gospel, then act stepwise, process-like, up to a full restoration from darkness, wounds, above the hands, dependency - what sin married and depredations had caused. Peter preached in Acts 2:40 with the words: "Let deliver you from this averted (perverse / evil) generation." Paul's preaching in Acts 17:30 that it is time to repent of the spiritual / religious "ignorance". Take in as an image of the "lost / prodigal son" return to the Father: "And he stood up and walked (search home) to his father." (We will not know about what happened when his son came from slavery in pigs owner. ) the father in turn was already out and looked for his son, for whom every order we do not know. But he may finally see his "repentance" son from afar, where he pigs smelling, shabby and faltering come wandering on the way home: "While he was still a long way off, his father saw him and had compassion on him. The father ran to meet him, fell on his neck and kissed him. "
Two scriptures on the dot hits right here, on the one hand, James 3: 8: "Draw near to God and he will draw near to you." And on the other hand, Revelation 3:20: "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with me. "Son, confession of sin," I have sinned, "and the needs of undeserved grace," I am no longer worthy to be called your son ", leads to several steps in the process hemkomstens:" But the father said to his servants: Hasten to bring out the best robe and put it on him and put a ring on his hand and shoes on his feet! And get the fatted calf and kill it, and let us eat and be merry. For my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found. And the party began. "From dark to light snake's head is about to be completely crushed (Rome 16:20). Satan will soon näpsas forever. Spiritual wickedness will ultimately always be unarmed. For fallen angels there is no salvation. Satan and his minions are gradually going to hell. But for a man who has faith, faith in a way already to be returned to God, and can say like Paul in 2 Timothy 1: 2: "I know whom I have believed." And Romans 8:16: "The Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God." We are "a festival crowd, a congregation of the firstborn who have their names written in heaven" (Hebrews 12:23). "But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people to proclaim his glorious deeds of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." (1 Peter 2: 9) Satan will soon näpsas forever. Spiritual wickedness will ultimately always be unarmed. For fallen angels there is no salvation. Satan and his minions are gradually going to hell.

(1 Peter 2: 9) Satan will soon näpsas forever. Spiritual wickedness will ultimately always be unarmed. For fallen angels there is no salvation. Satan and his minions are gradually going to hell. But for a man who has faith, faith in a way already to be returned to God, and can say like Paul in 2 Timothy 1: 2: "I know whom I have believed." And Romans 8:16: "The Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God." We are "a festival crowd, a congregation of the firstborn who have their names written in heaven" (Hebrews 12:23).

Vill du bli frälst och få alla dina synder förlåtna? Be den här bönen:
- Jesus, jag tar emot dig nu och bekänner dig som Herren.
Jag tror att Gud har uppväckt dig från de döda.
Tack att jag nu är frälst.
Tack att du har förlåtit mig och
tack att jag nu är ett Guds barn.
Denna bloggsajt är skapad och drivs av evangelisten Christer Åberg, 55 år gammal. Christer Åberg blev frälst då han tog emot Jesus som sin Herre för 35 år sedan. Bloggsajten Apg29 har funnits på nätet sedan 2001, alltså 18 år i
år. Christer Åberg är en änkeman sedan 2008. Han har en dotter på 13 år, Desiré, som brukar kallas för "Dessan", och en son i himlen, Joel,
som skulle ha varit 11 år om han hade levt idag. Allt detta finns att läsa om i boken Den längsta natten. Christer Åberg drivs av att förkunna om Jesus och hur man blir frälst. Det är därför som denna bloggsajt finns till.
