Do We Have Two Natures? Identity Confusion

Many Christians are often a bit confused about whether we as Christians have two natures.
Some people teach that we have one nature before we became a Christian, and when we are born again we got another, new nature.
This new nature is in conflict with the old one, and often we can still feel that the old nature is most dominant. The solution some preachers give is that you have to feed the good side of yourself, the new nature, so that the old one does not take over again. But that’s a lot of work.

I think this theology is not a good one, because it makes us fall under fear again!
What if I don’t feed the new nature enough? And are there any of us who can feed it enough?
I would argue that this way of thinking makes many Christians live in constant condemnation, and I was one of them.

She Experienced the Power of The Holy Spirit

A Newsletter from Tore and his family and ministry, working among people groups from Myanmar.

In the end of May and the beginning of June it can be challenging to be in Thailand 🇹🇭. It is the start of the rainy season, but it can also be very hot, up to 40 degrees Celsius. The showers that come only make it more humid, so the humidity can be very high at times.
We were encouraging a Christian family one evening, but they had no fan in their house and it felt a bit like a sauna in there. I was soaked when we got out.
I am very grateful for air conditioning in our own house, not many of the people we work with have that.

Since our newsletter in mid-April, four people have accepted Jesus and seven people have been baptized!

This newsletter will be about a woman who experienced the power of The Holy Spirit, baptisms again, a new Christian who received a Bible and he also had a dream etc.

I have also made a new video from the ministry. See video further down in this email!

It’s Because of Love

I do a ministry in northern Thailand, and here we run a Saturday school. One Saturday when we had over 60 children, I was quite tired after four hours of driving, pick up and send all the children back home and to teach English for four hours. I started and reflected on this: Why did I have a feeling of contentment and joy?

For almost 20 years ago, when I started to think about going to another country to share the Good News. I was not thinking about doing children’s ministry. I had pictured it a bit different life?
I didn’t see myself as a English teacher, or a driver. That was the least thing I was thinking off.
I was reflecting over this and wonder why do I still have such a joy doing this? I could have chosen a much easier life, so why did I choose this?

When is God Pleased?

When is God pleased and satisfied with us? Many Christians struggle with this question.

I had a quiz on my website for a while back, and one of the questions I had was: When do we please God? I was amazed how many people wrote: It is when I pray, don’t do any sins, sing worship songs, do evangelism, lead someone to Jesus and so on.

The focus was on what we need to do, but what is it that really satisfies God?

I have good news for you today, your worth is not connected to what we do, but who we are (read also more text under!).

What does God require?

What does God require? Or what does he desire most of all?
Is it our nice works or behavior? Is it our devotion to him or how much we pray?

My question is this: Do we live under the law or grace? If we live under grace what is the requirement? Get the answer in this message!

Be Still

Psalms 46:10
10 Be still, and know that I am God;

In this world it is easy to be stressed out. It can be all from work, circumstances, family, bad report when it comes to sickness or even when it comes to know our identity.

As a believer in a mighty God, we should not give into this stress, but the reality is that we are not so much different from people in this world. We still let this things get to us and even control us.
And you are not alone, and sometimes I ask why?
We have an answer that this world dose not have, and a hope and a power that are beyond our circumstances. So why do we worry? Often it is actually because we feel we not please God enough, so he might not hear our prayers. And that brings us back to identity too.

The truth is or soul can be still and know that He truly is God.

They Lost Everything In The Flash Flood

Newsletter from Tore and his family working in
Northern Thailand among the Shan people from Myanmar

We are in a busy time right now. We have visits from a DTS team from Canada, and we also have been giving out Covid-19 relief as food to many families and individuals affected by the Covid-19 situation, which is virtually most of the people we are reaching out to.
The Covid-19 situation has worsened here in the north recently, but vaccinations are in progress. 

Last week we also visited four families who lost everything in a flood.

Love Keeps No Record of Wrongs

We have probably all heard that God is love (1Joh 4:8), but what does that really mean? 

Some believe that God only has love, it’s only one of his attributes, and he will show it to us when we deserved it or when we have behaved good.

Some believe he only loves me and will hear my prayer when I have repented from all of the sins I have done. Some may even think: All sins I have done since I was a child and I also need to know exactly what I did.  
So they search and search their past and life to discover what they have done wrong, but that is not what God wants you to do. It is about how much you are forgiven and loved, not how much you have sinned.

There are a lot of people who are not very confident in their prayer, fellowship and communication with him, because they believe that God keeps a record of wrongs.
