Happy Birthday King Carl XVI Gustaf!

Your Majesty - Carl XVI Gustaf, King of Sweden - Congratulations and all the best to Your 60th birthday!

Ja, må han leva uti hundrade år; ja, visst ska han leva uti hundrade år. Grattis på födelsedagen kungen! Ha det jättebra i Stockholm.

Sweden has had 200 years of peace thanks to a monarchy that forms Europe's best constitution. Thousands of billions have also been saved from unnecessary spendings, which comes with presidential elections.

A King is always the best choice for both the business and for the people of any nation.

It is written in 1 Peter 2:17: "Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king". The king preserves the peace, the property, and the liberty to his subjects. The king is a terror to evil works, and an encourager of good ones, see Romans 13:3. In addition, the king is ordained of God, see Romans 13:1.

I personally hope that the United States, France, Italy, Germany, Greece, Israel, Russia, and other great nations soon will join in the sphere of nations ruled by democratic and modern monarchs.

Sweden has indeed a very long and stylish history, which includes the Sami and the lost tribes of Israel. Out of tradition the title of the Swedish king is "Rex Suecorum, Gothorum et Vandalorum". After some expeditions, the Vandals returned to Sweden, in between 100 - 500 AD. Some of the Vandal's exploits in southern Europe and in Africa can be seen at Museum Vandalorum in Värnamo in Sweden. The Visigoths originated from Visby, Gotland in Sweden, the Ostrogoths came from Östergötland in Sweden, and the Westgoths came from Västergötland, also in Sweden. Gothenburg, or Göteborg, as we say in Sweden, is the second largest Swedish city. After the time of the Vandals, which lasted to 800 AD, the Vikings succeeded from 800 to 1050 AD. This was a time of business activities and of equality between men and women, and Scandinavia also had to defend itself from invaders by launching preventive campaigns in various places.

Even the American President, George W. Bush, has Swedish roots, from Måns Andersson, who came to America in 1640, see http://www.svd.se/dynamiskt/utrikes/did_12274793.asp

As I was used to see runstones in Sweden, I was happy to find one here in Mons in Belgium as well, even if it is in a museum. Maybe there is no coincidence after all that the Swedish and Belgian royal families has close ties.

Anyway, I wish all good luck to the Swedish King on his birthday and to his family, and at least 200 more years of peace and prosperity for the Swedish people.

"Ecce venio cito, et merces mea mecum est, reddere unicuique sicut opus eius est", Revelation 22:12.

Chernobyl And Atomic Incompetence

20 years ago a nuclear power plant exploded in Chernobyl in Ukraine, and radioactive dust leaked over large areas of Europe.

In Russian Chernobyl means wormwood. Wormwood is actually a bitter plant connected to poisonous water.

Atomic incompetence, at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, has led to the death of thousands of persons. The effects of this terrible accident will be experienced in Europe for still a very long time, see Revelation 8:11.

Could a similar accident happen again? Of course! Everything in the Bible happens at least two times, see Job 33:14, and Psalm 62:11.

There is not much we can do to hinder that one third of the worlds drinking water will be destroyed by radiation from nuclear bombs, nuclear power plants, and nuclear waste. Everything is predestinated, see Romans 8:30, and 2 Timothy 3:1.

"Scimus autem quoniam diligentibus Deum omnia cooperantur in bonum, his, qui secundum propositum vocati sunt", Romans 8:28.

How Should 666 Be Calculated?

"Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six", Revelation 13:18.

When magic is treated as real, darkness has no power over it.

The apostle Peter said: "For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty", 2 Peter 1:16.

There still exist people, who lack spiritual power and wisdom. Many of them are even to be found within the Church. But Jesus adviced us that if we would "have faith as a grain of mustard seed", see Matthew 17:20, we would remove mountains, and everything would be possible for us.

In 2 Corinthians 6:14 it is written that light has no communion with darkness. Thus the beast of Revelation 13:18 is of course Jesus spelt backwards. Another way of calculating the number of the opponent of Christ is through the Latin gematria or numerology. In the sacred Latin alphabet every letter has a numerical value. The Latin alphabet is comprised of 22 letters, and this alphabet was wisely formed by the best elements of the Hebrew and the Greek alphabets, and in a way secretly even existed before these languages, see also Obadiah 1:6.

In the sacred Latin language, the numerical value of the letter A is 1. I is 9 (J and Y are later additions). Of course K is 10, L is 20, and M is 30 etc. The letter T stands for 100, U is 200 (V and W are later additions), the numerical value for the letter X is 300, and finally Z stands for 400. He who knows the beginning also knows the end.

Numerology has often fascinated us. God took Enoch, the seventh from Adam, see Genesis 5:24, and Jude 1:14 - after 365 years - since God Himself had taught Enoch about the heavenly order and the symbolical secret of the year having 365 days, thus making this length of the year a decree for future generations. It was also Enoch, who erected both pillars in Jerusalem - on the temple mount - before the flood, and inscribed the heavenly mysteries on them for future generations. Enoch, will meet the person designated as Elijah at the appointed time, see Malachi 4:5, and Romans 10:12, to prove the immortality in Christ, see Revelation 11:11. For more information concerning the two witnesses see Genesis 1:26, 3:24, 18:2, 19:1, Daniel 12:5, Zechariah 4:14, Matthew 20:23, John 20:12, Acts 1:10, and Revelation 11:3.

"Omne datum optimum et omne donum perfectum de sursum est, descendens a Patre luminum, apud quem non est transmutatio nec vicissitudinis obumbratio", James 1:17.

Christ's Resurrection And Second Coming

"Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen", Revelation 1:7.

It is written that "the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord", see Romans 6:23. But what is Christianity and what do Christians really believe?

What do Christians really believe about Jesus?

1. Christians believe that Jesus was born by the virgin Mary, see Matthew 1:23, and Luke 1:34.

2. Christians believe that Jesus is God, see John 14:9, Romans 9:5, and 1 Timothy 3:16.

3. Christians believe that Jesus died for our sins, see 1 Corinthians 15:3, and 1 Peter 2:24.

4. Christians believe that Jesus is resurrected, see Romans 10:9, and 2 Timothy 2:8.

5. Christians believe that Jesus will return, see Matthew 24:27, John 14:3, and Acts 1:11.

But which is the mystery of salvation?

According to the promise of Jesus we "look for new heavens and a new earth", see 2 Peter 3:13, since His kingdom not is of this world, see John 18:36. Jesus saw a parallel between His coming and the days af Noah, and also between the second coming and the days of Lot, see Luke 17:26 - 37, and 2 Peter 3:10.

The mystery of salvation is that we not all shall sleep, but that we all shall be changed, see 1 Corinthians 15:51 - 57. The dead in Christ shall rise first, and the remaining will meet the Lord Jesus in the air, see 1 Thessalonians 4:16 - 18, and Revelation 20:4 - 6, and Revelation 22:5.

But the unbelievers will die in their sins, see John 8:24, and Romans 10:9 - 13.

"Et si abiero et praeparavero vobis locum, iterum venio et accipiam vos ad meipsum, ut, ubi sum ego, et vos sitis", John 14:3.

Celebrate Jesus And Live Victoriously

In the "glorious gospel", see 1 Timothy 1:11, we have the key to the bank, see Philippians 4:19. "For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich", 2 Corinthians 8:9.

Jesus cares for our welfare - both material and spiritual - and He has therefore given us a powerful, balanced, loving, and sound mind, see 2 Timothy 1:7, and "this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith", 1 John 5:4.

God wants us to be wealthy, see Luke 19:12 - 27, to build new houses, see Proverbs 14:1, to leave an inheritance for future generations, see Proverbs 13:22, and to invest successfully in for example oil stocks, see Jeremiah 41:8, and in precious metals, see Haggai 2:8. But God requires of us to be responsible and to not destroy the earth, see Revelation 11:18, and to be just and merciful, see Ezekiel 7:19, Matthew 23:23, and James 5:1 - 6, and "to support the weak", Acts 20:35.

Abraham was one of the richest men who ever lived, because the Lord blessed him in all, and this blessing has been passed on through Isaac and then Esau to the Romans, see Genesis 27:39 - 40, and finally, through Christ to all men, see Romans 11:12, and Philippians 4:13.

In 1 Timothy 3:3 it is said that a bishop not should be greedy, and in 1 Timothy 6:10 it is said that "the love of money is the root to all evil". Here the New Testament is referring to dishonest gain which is called "filthy lucre", see 1 Peter 5:2.

Jesus died for us on the cross in order for us to become rich in all aspects, see 2 Corinthians 8:9. This is something we not should despise, because God wants us to be happy, rich and wealthy, see Luke 12:32, John 15:7, and 3 John 1:2.

"Benedictus Deus et Pater Domini nostri Iesu Christi, qui benedixit nos in omni benedictione spiritali in caelestibus in Christo", Ephesians 1:3.

Never Two Without Three

Before the return of our Lord Jesus, the Third Temple will be rebuilt in Jerusalem, as it is written: "measure the temple of God", Revelation 11:1.

It is in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem it will be revealed to all men that: "there be one Lord, and his name one", see Zechariah 14:9. But when the Antichrist "as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God", see 2 Thessalonians 2:4, "then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be", Matthew 24:21. See also Revelation 8:7, 9:18, 13:15, and 16:3, 16.

Now, Jerusalem is the city of The Great King Jesus, see Matthew 5:35, and He will rebuild The Temple in three days, see John 2:19, as it is confirmed in Scripture: "After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: that the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things", see Acts 15:16 - 17.

"All things work together for good to them that love God", Romans 8:28, and therefore Jesus will come with his holy myriads, see Jude 1:14, "to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him", Jude 1:15, which is confirmed by His words: "But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me", see Luke 19:27. "For our God is a consuming fire", Hebrews 12:29, "and in righteousness he doth judge and make war", Revelation 19:11. See also Romans 2:16.

The coming Temple in Jerusalem, is the house of God, and the gateway to heaven, see Genesis 28:12, and to Mars, see Revelation 21:1 - 3.

"Irascimini et nolite peccare; sol non occidat super iracundiam vestram", Ephesians 4:26.
