Whose voice do you listen to?

Jæja Guð…
One of my ministry friends an older gentelman shared a story when he was in bible school decades ago in USA and up in the north were it snows and gets cold. Icelandic cold God had called him to go to a bible school and he got blessed with a free rent in a tiny little cabin. he was there for the summer. but as fall came and it started to get colder and colder.. he started to dress more and more and pack himself under clothes and blankets. but one day he had a friend over and that friend asked him why he wolld not turn on the stove ? that small thing is a stove?
he had no idea he had a stove or what it was for? they turned it on and that little stove kept the cabin warm the whole winter.
God has given us access mad us hairs of the kingdom, sons and daughters. priests and servants. and made promises to us to not leave us as oprhans. but send the Holy Spirit to help us, guide us
John 14:26 NASB95
26 “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.
We have to stop ignoring the Spirit of God and star honoring his presence and input in our lives.
Honoring the gentle nudges, so they grow and increase.
you see the more we give attention to the spirit the more he wil give attention to us! its a win win in avery way.
Talk about the power of the Holy SPirit !!
Acts 1:8 NASB95
8 but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
Acts 2:1–4 NASB95
1 When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 2 And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.
Romans 12:6–8 NASB95
6 Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith; 7 if service, in his serving; or he who teaches, in his teaching; 8 or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
Activateing the whole body of Christ! we all have a part.
1 Corinthians 7:7 NASB95
7 Yet I wish that all men were even as I myself am. However, each man has his own gift from God, one in this manner, and another in that.
Romans 12:4–8 NASB95
4 For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, 5 so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. 6 Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith; 7 if service, in his serving; or he who teaches, in his teaching; 8 or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
Proverbs 8:17 NASB95
17 “I love those who love me; And those who diligently seek me will find me.
Jeremiah 29:13 NASB95
13 ‘You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
There is jsut something inside a burning desire for God that cant be contained or stopped - this desire moves me, draws me, pushes me, and at the same time pulls out of me the deep things of God.
A relationship with God draws the best out of us, encounters with God change us - just like the woman at the well in John 4 that Jesus spoke to and asked to draw water for him. and then prophesied to her You have had 5 men and the one you have now is not your husband. …
WHO ARE YOU.. she had a deep prophetic encounter that showed her God saw her, God loved her, and she was transformed and ran around the city and called people to come to see Jesus the man that knew everything about her.
People are hungry for the real propehtic ministry.... people out there are desperate and hungry
Jeremiah 33:3 NASB95
3 ‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
2 Chronicles 7:14 NASB95
14 and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Acts 1:8 NASB95
8 but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
1 Corinthians 2:9–10 NASB95
9 but just as it is written, Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.” 10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
1 Corinthians 2:11–14 NASB95
11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, 13 which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. 14 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.
Romans 8:28–30 NASB95
28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. 29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; 30 and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.
You shall recieve power!
Acts 1:8 NASB95
8 but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
The enamy comes to steal, kill and destroy the word!
that is why we need to stand on the prophetic promises.
Give up.. is it really true. your not worth it, your a nobody, no one listens to you, who cares about what you have to say…
There has been and is a demonic agenda to shut down the voice of God in Iceland, to shut down the church and those that stand on the side of God.
We have a mission todo, its more than patching bandaid on each other. and pet each others back and encourage. careful not to take this out of contexts. I love the church, but we can not become to inwardly focused on shepherdeing the flock that we forget that the harvest is plentyful and white for harvest.
Yes we Mend the broken, but we also heal and deploy!!
Preach! I am not only preaching to you… I am preaching to your friends and all of those around you. !
Do you GET IT ? You are the carrier of the word - you are the seed carrier!
When we realise that
Prophetic Promises
1 Peter 1:10–12 NASB95
10 As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries, 11 seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow. 12 It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things into which angels long to look.
Jeseja 53 - not going there.
Road to emmeous
Luke 24:27–32 (NASB95)
Luke 24:27–32 NASB95
27 Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures. 28 And they approached the village where they were going, and He acted as though He were going farther. 29 But they urged Him, saying, “Stay with us, for it is getting toward evening, and the day is now nearly over.” So He went in to stay with them. 30 When He had reclined at the table with them, He took the bread and blessed it, and breaking it, He began giving it to them. 31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized Him; and He vanished from their sight. 32 They said to one another, “Were not our hearts burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He was explaining the Scriptures to us?”
What are the prophetic promises God has given to us?
Acts 1:8 NASB95
8 but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
1 Timothy 1:18 NASB95
18 This command I entrust to you, Timothy, my son, in accordance with the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you fight the good fight,
2 timothy 1:1-10 “4 longing to see you, even as I recall your tears, so that I may be filled with joy. 5 For I am mindful of the sincere faith within you, which first dwelt in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am sure that it is in you as well. 6
For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7 For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.
8 Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord or of me His prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel according to the power of God, 9 who has saved us and called us with a holy calling…”
You shall recieve power - it is in you, stir it up!
For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7 For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.
Prophetic culture!
Proverbs 27:17 NASB95
17 Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another.
We need each other, I love my friends I love and respect each person in my life because every one brings something to the table.
When recieve POWER when we come into the presence of God, when we are filled and touched by the holy Spirit all sorts of things start to happen, we bein to speak in tongues, we prophecy, we speak out mysteries.
1 Samuel 10:11 NASB95
11 It came about, when all who knew him previously saw that he prophesied now with the prophets, that the people said to one another, “What has happened to the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?”
I dont knwo about you, but I long to see us building with the holy Spirit again.
Acts 1:4–5 NASB95
4 Gathering them together, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, “Which,” He said, “you heard of from Me; 5 for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”
Acts 1:8 NASB95
8 but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
Dear friends! do you position yourself to recieve the power of the spirit?
Like I shared here above in 1 corintians 2 the Holy spirit searches all things our hearts and the deep things of God and he can then reveal to us from the deep. We need the Holy Spirit More than anything.
and we need to learn to hear and discern his voice and b willing to take walk to learn
Look at the disciples Jesus sends out, they have no idea what they are doing. but they have become “SENT ONES”
Just like starting working in a new job we learn on the go, and we need to learn to read the signs and metaphores and waves of God when to step in and when to hold back.
Matthew 4:17 NASB95
17 From that time Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
The kingdom is so close its right here in the palm of your hand!
Acts 1:8 NASB95
8 but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
Where is the power? Where is our faith?
your looking at a man that has been fed by ravens, walked into a maximum security prison in UK just because of a word.
there is power in a word. there is a promise in a word
Luke 1:37 NASB95
37 “For nothing will be impossible with God.”
If God says something - the word th rhema word will hold the power for perform it when we move on it by faith. The words are alive.
;
The kingdom of God is in the palm of your hand, its in you its on you its all over us.. The holy Spirit has been poured over all flesh
Acts 2:17–18 NASB95
17And it shall be in the last days,’ God says, That I will pour forth of My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, And your young men shall see visions, And your old men shall dream dreams; 18 Even on My bondslaves, both men and women, I will in those days pour forth of My Spirit And they shall prophesy.
I got my prophetic calling in my room back in 1994
I had no church, no one to learn to walk in the prophetic from, no internet no books, no training, no prophetic nothing, just the Holy Spirit and the bible. and a few VHS videotapes crusades with Benny Hinn. that I watched over and over.
We here in Iceland have grown a lot in spiritual thigns last 3 decades.
but there is still room to grow and improve I want to change this today - and create a prophetic culture a safe house for prophetic people to learn, interact and be sharpened in the spiritual gifts.
get this ALL can prophecy every one in here can prophecy!
Luke 6:45 NASB95
45 “The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.
1 cor 14:31 “31 For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all may be exhorted;”
1 cor 12:1 “1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware.”
1 cor 12:7-11 “7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. 8 For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, 10 and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.”
1 Cor 14:1-2 “1 Pursue love, yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. 2 For one who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God; for no one understands, but in his spirit he speaks mysteries.”
1 cor 14:3-5 “3 But one who prophesies speaks to men for edification and exhortation and consolation. 4 One who speaks in a tongue edifies himself; but one who prophesies edifies the church. 5 Now I wish that you all spoke in tongues, but even more that you would prophesy; and greater is one who prophesies than one who speaks in tongues, unless he interprets, so that the church may receive edifying.”
Galatians 6:9 NASB95
9 Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.
John 14:17–18 NASB95

Numbers 11:29 NASB95

God opens gates vision
I was walking with someone in a vision that I could not see. but he walks me to this gate to a yard and as we come to the gate and i stand bofore thsi big iron gate I think it was double my hight of big black iron
as i stand there in front of the gate, it does not only open ut if falls down into the yard, and I see this big yard that had not been attented to for years.
Knowing to interpret dreams and connecting the dots.. walking!
pick out the details.. I was walking, I was following. I was moving, I was curious where I was going, Key words in the dream Angel. Gate. garden
Scriptuers about followingg, gates, gardens angels..
work on the visions you get.
acts 12:8-12 “8 And the angel said to him, “Gird yourself and put on your sandals.” And he did so. And he said to him, “Wrap your cloak around you and follow me.” 9 And he went out and continued to follow, and he did not know that what was being done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision. 10 When they had passed the first and second guard, they came to the iron gate that leads into the city, which opened for them by itself; and they went out and went along one street, and immediately the angel departed from him. 11 When Peter came to himself, he said, “Now I know for sure that the Lord has sent forth His angel and rescued me from the hand of Herod and from all that the Jewish people were expecting.” 12 And when he realized this, he went to the house of Mary, the mother of John who was also called Mark, where many were gathered together and were praying.”
We know by reading this scripture that the gate did not open by itself. and angel must have opened the gate.
God sends his angels to help us, and guide us back to the path with God.
