On The Peoples And Borders Of Israel

James was a servant of our great God and Lord Jesus Christ. He wrote to the "twelve tribes which are scattered abroad", see James 1:1.

The reason why James wrote to the twelve tribes of Israel, was because Jesus was sent to the "lost sheep of the house of Israel", see Matthew 15:24. Jesus is the Prince of Peace, and He has broken down the middle wall of partition between the known and the lost tribes of Israel, see John 10:16 and Ephesians 2:14. I used to despise my father for being Swedish, since my mother had a noble Greek and Roman background. Today I deeply regret that.

There is a reason why the nation of Israel will have its biblical borders from the river Nile to the river Euphrates, see Genesis 15:18, during the coming Kingdom, see Mark 1:15 and Revelation 20:4. Of course the King of the South - even the King of Egypt - will not be happy with this, see Daniel 11:40, and Revelation 11:8.

Present Israel is made up of the tribes of Judah and Joseph. But what about the ten lost tribes of Israel then? The ten lost tribes of Israel is today in control of major international strategic bases, and this is also according to biblical promises, see Genesis 22: 15 - 18. The lost ten tribes of Israel were designed to be the richest and the most powerful nations of the world, see Genesis 27:28 and Numbers 24:7 - 9. This is also what has come to pass.

Modern Scandinavia - with Sweden as its leading nation - is made up of the tribe of Nephtali. These were known as the White Huns, who lived at the Indian border, after the twelve tribes of Israel split away, see 1 Kings 12:19. The lost ten tribes of Israel have forgotten their identity, see Hosea 1:9 - 10. The tribe of Nephtali was always united with the tribes of Dan and Aser. Today Denmark also shares its borders with Sweden, and common popular names in for example Latvia, a former Eastern part of Sweden, often originates from Indian mythology.

In the near future - after the war at Armageddon, see Revelation 16:16 - the lost ten tribes of Israel will re-unite with the Jews, see Jeremiah 3:18. But first they have a role of their own to fulfill. The lost ten tribes of Israel are to be found amongst the Western nations; Scandinavia, the British Isles, France, the Netherlands, North America, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. These peoples are numerous and that is why they will need to have all the land between the river Nile and the river Euphrates to live on. Today the Americans and the British fight for their future homes in Iraq, but they don't understand it yet.

Alongside the twelve tribes of Israel, we have the Greeks, see Romans 10:12, and those who the Bible calls Assyrians and who are made up of Romans and Germans, see Isaiah 19:25 and John 19:20.

But what about the bottomless pit then? Well, this abyss is a real geographic place, see Luke 16:23 - 31 - just like heaven - see also Jude 1:6 and Revelation 11:7. The bottomless pit is indeed a dreadful place in Israel, see Luke 8:31. Those who are approved workmen of God, see 2 Timothy 2:15, and who have studied the alphabet of triangles and the Kabbalah - and know how Keter reflects in the mirror of Malkuth - also know how both heaven and hell in some way always are geographically connected with Israel.

The Promised Land of Israel is thus to be divided among the 12 Tribes of Israel.

"Videte qualem caritatem dedit nobis Pater, ut filii Dei nomine mur, et sumus! Propter hoc mundus non cognoscit nos, quia non cognovit eum", 1 John 3:1.

Long Live Life-Saving Technologies!

"And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him", see James 5:15.

Medical technologies help saving lives. The father of my wife - had died before I met him - in a heart attack at the age of 47. Heart diseases are current in my wife's family. It still came as a shock for me, when my wife had to undergo a heart surgery this week. That happened the day before yesterday. The heart surgery went fine, and yesterday my wife was sent home.

I greatly admire the expertise, and the kindness of the staff at the Tivoli Hospital at La Louvière in Belgium. Even if I have a law degree, I occasionally worked with nursing - when I returned from the United States to Sweden some fifteen years ago - in two different hospitals. Since then, I realize that the medical technologies have greatly developed.

It has even been said that space technology saves lives, and that soon the lives of some patients could benefit from a new artificial heart developed with technology from the space shuttle program, see http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/281131.stm

I am very thankful towards the Belgian health system, its clinical efficacy, and its heart surgeons, without whom my wife would not have survived, although she still is a relatively young person. Thank you very much for your outstanding and extraordinary work in this very difficult matter!

My wife has all reasons to be proud of her country, and the advanced medical know-how here in Belgium.

During a long time, I have stressed the importance of good education, and especially more technology in education. The positive results of our modern technology is clear. Not many years ago, you would probably be dead if you got a serious heart problem. Today, you go the hospital, the doctors fix the problem, and the next day you are out again from the hospital, and feeling well. Of course the human body needs some time to adapt. But still, it is fantastic!

In the New Testament we are promised to be "partakers of the divine nature", see 2 Peter 1:4. As "joint-heirs with Christ", see Romans 8:17, we are "the sons of God", see John 1:12, if we only receive the Lord Jesus.

In Luke 8:50, Jesus told the ruler of the synagogue: "Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole". In times of distress, the Lord, and His words give great comfort.

"For of him and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.", see Romans 11:36.

Thank you Jesus!

"For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him", see Colossians 1:16.

"Et ipse est ante omnes, et omnia in ipso constant", Colossians 1:17.

God Laid Down His Life For Us - 1 John 3:16

There is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known, see Luke 12:2. Therefore we should all fear Him, who has the power to cast into hell, see Luke 12:5. And He who has all power is Jesus, see Matthew 28:18 and Revelation 1:8, who said "I and my Father are one", see John 10:30.

By the offence of Adam "judgment came upon all men to condemnation", but by the righteousness of Jesus "the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life", see Romans 5:18. "And all flesh shall see the salvation of God", see Luke 3:6, since all shall know the Lord, from the least to the greatest, see Hebrews 8:11.

If the European politicians said like Paul: "For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified", see 1 Corinthians 2:2, things would be better in the world.

Sweden has got a new government and after only 8 days in power, one political minister has already been forced to resign by the tabloid press, because she didn't pay taxes for a baby-sitter she hired during the 90's.

Since the newly elected Swedish political leaders are like most people, this new Swedish center-right government has little or no chance to survive the coming 4 years until the next election. The political platform of the new Swedish government is rather good, but its leaders simply don't know what they are up against.

Here in Belgium it is very different. Since the voting is mandatory in Belgium, the Belgian political leaders don't have to work too hard to get votes. If you don't vote you get fined, so everyone votes, although often finding it meaningless.

Many Belgian cities have an unemployment rate of 30%, but the population accepts this and in some cities, like Mons where I live, we have a left-right local government. Neighbouring cities have center-right, or left-center governments. In yet a little bigger cities, like Charleroi, you have left-center-right governments.

Those poor folks, who are unhappy with the present political situation in Belgium have only one choice if they want change in Wallonia, and that is to vote for the extreme right wing party, Front National, which claims that all bad things come from immigration and foreigners.

The Belgian television and press will of course not say anything positive about Front National. This political party is discriminated in televised debates, and still Front National gets 10% of the votes in Wallonia.

In Flanders the far right party Vlaams Belang is so big and powerful, that it is from my point of view difficult to see how little Belgium in the long run will manage to keep together its French, Dutch, and German populations in one nation.

Since Belgium not is a centralized Reich - with one undisputed leader, one language, and one people, like in Sweden - but a federation and rather young country, with 4 different governments, one French speaking Wallonian parliament, one Dutch speaking Flemish parliament, one German speaking German parliament, and finally the European commission in Brussels consisting of representatives from 25 countries - from 1st of January 27 countries - which make up the European Union and which has the real power, Belgium has difficulties emanating from all this decentralization, where no one effectively is in charge.

There are several hundreds of different political parties in Europe, and thousands of different languages here. One way to create a stable Europe would be to have 2 different political parties for the entirety of the European union, like in the United States, and also to have Latin as the common language for all the different nations. Things are also working in this direction.

The New Testament promises that Jesus will rule the nations with a rod of iron, Revelation 12:5, and it is clear that the world will be more centralized in the future.

More and more people understand that socialism and islam not offer political solutions if you want freedom and democracy, see Galatians 5:1. Those who believe in the Old Testament, and in the prophet Daniel, say that the King of the North will destroy the King of the South, and that this means that the cross utterly will defeat the crescent, in the battle of Armageddon, see Revelation 16:16. This would mean more power to you. Think that over!

"Non omnis, qui dicit mihi: “Domine, Domine”, intrabit in regnum caelorum, sed qui facit voluntatem Patris mei, qui in caelis est", Matthew 7:21.

The New Testament Word Ensures Eternal Security

Courage is what is needed to be done in the face of terror. Therefore never let others stand in your way, because "he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever", see 1 John 2:17.

Christ is our wisdom and our strength, see 1 Corinthians 1:24, and in Jesus are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge hidden, see Colossians 2:3.

God did not spare the old world, see 2 Peter 2:5. Neither will He spare this world. Jesus said that "as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be", see Matthew 24:37.

Before the flood Noah entered into the ark. But will there be a new flood and do we have an ark?

Now, as history repeats itself, the same things will happen again, because there cannot be "new heavens and a new earth", unless the old Earth first disappears, see 2 Peter 3:13.

In the New Testament, Jesus declares that the old world first will be destroyed by the flood, just like in the days of Noah, see Luke 17:26 - 27.

Subsequently the fire will destroy all on Earth, see Luke 17:28 - 29.

Our Saviour and heavenly ark is Jesus Christ. He is "the true God, and eternal life", see 1 John 5:20. In Him is life, see John 1:3. We will ever be with the Lord in the air, see 1 Thessalonians 4:17, according to His calling: "Come up hither", see Revelation 4:1.

After that the Earth has been destroyed first by water - like in the days of Noah - and then by fire - like Sodom and Gomorrah in the days of Lot - there will be no more oceans or seas on Earth, see Revelation 21:1.

An asteroid crashing into the ocean will cause "distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring", see Luke 21:25, and "the powers of heaven shall be shaken", see Luke 21:26.

We know that every human being can be reincarnated 3 times, compare with 2 Corinthians 13:1, but that finally every human who has ever lived after Adam is resurrected into the Kingdom of God or into Hell, and that then it is too late to be saved, see Luke 16:26.

Every one in Hell is fully aware of the fact that Jesus is Lord, but for them it is too late, since they have missed the opportunity for salvation, see Luke 16:28.

The most important question on the political agenda is therefore eternal security, see Matthew 28:18 -20.

We Christian believers are Kings and Priests for ever, see Revelation 1:6 and 22:5. Our duty here on Earth must accordingly be to ensure eternal security for our fellow citizens, see also John 3:16 - 17.

Through the New Testament we know the truth, and the truth makes us free, see John 8:31 - 32.

"Cupimus autem unumquemque vestrum eandem ostentare sollicitudinem ad expletionem spei usque in finem", Hebrews 6:11.

Will An Asteroid Hit Earth?

"And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the notable day of the Lord come", Acts 2:19 - 20.

An asteroid, 2002 NT7, is on an impact course with Earth and could strike our planet on 1 February, 2019.

This asteroid is about two kilometers wide, and large enough to cause continent-wide devastation on Earth.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYgEwXWilUc

Every 2.29 years this asteroid heads towards our inner solar system, where the Earth is located.

The probability of an Earth impact with the asteroid known as 2002 NT7, in 2019, is in fact very low. On August 1, 2002, the object was removed from the list of objects that present a threat, at least for the next 100 years : http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/risk/removed.html

However, even if this near-Earth object has a low probability of impact of approximately one in a million, we cannot eliminate the risk of the Earth being hit with an asteroid, and especially in the light of certain passages in the New Testament, see 2 Peter 3:10.

As a comparison, the chance of winning the Jackpot in the EuroMillions Lottery - when playing on your own - is approximately one in 72 millions, and yet there are winners almost every week: see http://www.virtualworlddirect.com/ohlundonline

Jesus said: "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken", see Matthew 24:29. An asteroid slamming into the Earth certainly fits this prophecy.

Jesus also speaks of: "Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken", see Luke 21:26. Only one event including a planet killer asteroid, which is approaching within a year, would describe the psychological condition of the world in this New Testament verse.

In the book of Revelation, we read that "the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains", see Revelation 6:12 - 15.

Asteroid impacts are thus foretold in the New Testament. An asteroid will hit the Earth in the future according to the New Testament, but no objects which pose a significant threat have yet been discovered.

Presently, we don't know when, or where, an asteroid will hit the Earth.

Jesus warned us of this coming disaster. If we watch - as we are exhorted to do - we will know when and where this event will take place, see Revelation 3:3.

Could it be that the new Earth, described in the book of Revelation, is this planet, our dear planet Earth - after an asteroid impact - since there will be no more sea, see Revelation 21:1, in this world, which is without end, see Ephesians 3:21?

"Et erit: omnis quicumque invocaverit nomen Domini, salvus erit", Acts 2:21.
