Experience Jesus

A few years ago I went to a prayer evening of a church. During this evening the pastor prayed for a young man who was also attending the evening. The words of the pastor touched the young man who started crying. While the pastor continued to pray for others as well, I went to the young man. I don’t know why, but for some reason I started to cast out everything that was not from God and to pray for the Holy Spirit to fill this young man. I didn’t know at that time that this person was delivered from demons at that moment. Read More

Yesterday, Jesus Conquered

Yesterday evening, my wife and I were visiting fellow Christians. We were gathered there with several brothers and sisters and had real fellowship. It was really good to be together as God’s family and be church. During the evening we discussed how we could live as real disciples of Jesus, just like the first disciples in the Book of Acts. This was interesting and good. However, at the end of the evening something even more interested happened during prayer. Read More

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. ~ Ephesians 6,10-13 ~

I assume that the above Bible passage is familiar to most of you and you have probably heard that you are in a spiritual war. However, do you really consider yourself in a war? If you don’t, you are already disarmed by the Enemy. Read More

WWII and Living in the Kingdom of God

When I was young, I liked to read books. Many of the books I read were stories about the Second World War. I liked to read books about the Dutch Resistance during the nazi occupation of the Netherlands. Although, most of them were only fictional stories, they inspired and intrigued me. Years later, when I became a follower of Jesus, I started to realize that following Jesus had something in common with the Dutch Resistance. While the Netherlands were occupied by the nazis, several Dutchmen denied to work together with the nazis and started to sabotage the works of their occupiers. Together they formed the Dutch Resistance. Although they lived in an occupied country, they lived for the sake of the Dutch Kingdom. Read More
