“‘Man shall not live by bread alone,
but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Seeking God through fasting and prayer


God wants our relationship and our intimacy. God loves us and he also wants our love and our worship. He also want our obedience.
Fasting is a way to humble ourselves before the Lord. Fasting is a way to increase your discipline and patience. Seek God through fasting and praying.
Fasting and eating healthy is also way to take care of our body which is a temple for the Holy spirit. If we forsake and put away certain things we can prepare more time for God in our lives.

Fasting and also fasting from media TV and internet
I would like to encourage you to do some fasting and also fast from media, TV, magazines, music, video games, internet etc for a while. Spend less time on these things and more time on God. Spend more time in prayer and Bible reading.
Media, TV and internet is so full of sinful content and it also steals your time. Time is precious. Personally I don't even watch Hollywood movies or mainstream movies any more. They are all filled with sin, violence, rudeness, cussing words and filth. And they all abuse God's name or the name of Jesus all the time. We are living under God's grace, under the mercy and love of God. We are also living in the end times and who knows how long it will be before God's judgements will come over the Earth?
God loves us and he wants our relation. Seek God's face, keep Him as your Lord, obey Jesus. Do fasting, pray and seek God's face.
Then your relation with God will grow and your faith will grow. Then after your fasting you can enjoy the good things in life such as good food, pastry, cookies or whatever you like.
But never be a slave under these things. Don't be a slave under your desires. Jesus Christ is number one. God also warns about idol worship. Anything that you place above God, any thing that you love more than God is an idol. Your idol is your true object of your worship.
Here are mixed Christian videos and sermons on various topics. Turn off secular media and Hollywood entertainment and focus on God.
God has warned me about my computer, that it is an Idol for me, a thing that I worship, a thing that I love more than God.

TV and internet surfing steals your time
I just wanted to say this one more time: TV and internet surfing, Video games, sinful pop music etc steals your time. Time is precious!
What is your true object of your worship? Is it God? Or is it your Ipad, your smartphone, your computer, your TV?
It's amazing when I have those moments when all my doubts are gone. All of a sudden I realize that God is real, that God actually exists, and it blows my mind! It fascinates me!
Christianity is not only a religion. It's a love relation with God!
It's fantastic! God is great! Seek his face. Don't waste your time.
Another thing: realize also how much you can get done if you do not watch TV and movies all the time. You can work in the garden, renovating the house or your apartment, bake something, take a walk, exercise, play an instrument, go to a church service instead of watching TV. Don't watch secular sinful TV and movies. You waste your time. Look at Christian sermons on YouTube, on the web this is what I mostly watch. Derek Prince and John Van Dinther is highly recommended.

June 1, 2016 was a perfect day for me
I fasted the whole day, I only drank water. I went into town, to Östersund and out to a very big island called Frösön. I sat there praying to Jesus with an astonishing view over green hills, blue mountains and a clear blue sky with beautiful fluffy clouds.
It was warm and sunny, yet I had shadow from the trees. I prayed to Jesus Christ and worshipped God for over one hour. It was perfect. I was before God's face in his beautiful creation. It was almost like I could see God in the sky, if you know what I mean. It was all so beautiful, sunny, warm and perfect!
Here is a photo that I took from the same place last year. I have edited the sky in this photo a little to make it look like the sky was on this beautiful day June 1 2016.
Actually I have made a new page here with many photos from my absolute favourite prayer place.
My time for praying is not depending on the weather. Nowadays I pray to God 4 times every day. Morning prayer, lunch/noon prayer (between 12:00 and 13:10 if I don't work. Sometimes it's a little bit longer of course. If I work between 12:00 and 13:00 I do one hour of prayer before work, often in the morning.) Then in the evening I also do two evening prayers, one at around 21:00 and also one shorter before I go to bed.
If I'm not well prepared enough for my prayer time so I have to stop in the middle of it, or if I forget to pray (very seldom but it happens), it surely feels like God does not like it.
But that day June 1, 2016, it felt like the whole day was just a big response from God and that he said: I love you! God is so great! Thank Him! praise Him! Praise Jesus Christ!

I put the link to this wonderful song also here. What a lovely song, both the text and the music.
Don Moen I'LL SAY YES (With Lyrics) scroll down a bit to find the song, it's at the bottom on the list.
Remember: When you say yes to the Lord Jesus Christ you also say no to the world. It must be an absolute and clear no to sin. He is worth it! Praise the Lord Jesus Christ!

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
Galatians 5:16


whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.
1 John 2:6


Likewise, you younger, submit yourselves to the elder. Yes, all of you shall be subject to eachother, and be clothed with humility: for God resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble.
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
Casting all your care upon him; for he cares for you.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, walks around as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour:
Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
But the God of all grace, who has called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that you have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

1 Peter 5:5-10


And Joshua said to the people, Sanctify yourselves: for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.
Joshua 3:5

How to resist temptations
Here are some tips about how to resist temptations. You must be prepared and know that they will come before they come. You need to make up your mind in advance and decide what you will do. Satan gives you step one, and then he expects you to take step two.
"I'm just going to..."


The strategy of the devil: distraction and manipulation
What does the devil say to you when you decide to fast?
I'm just going to take a cup of coffe.
Then when you drink your coffe he says: I need something to my coffee.
Then you obey and take sweets or a cookie.

What does the devil say to you when you decide to pray and forsake TV, video games and internet for one evening?
I'm just going to check my e-mail. I'm just going to check my Facebook. Very quick..
Then you obey and you spend all evening watching movies and surfing on internet.

What does the devil say to you when you decide to stop masturbating?
I'm going to take a shower right now. Or: I'm going to sleep without underwear tonight. I'm going to sleep naked tonight.
Then you obey and you masturbate.

What does the devil say to you when you have managed to start eating healthy?
I have been a good person, I have not been eating sweets or cookies for two weeks. I deserve a reward. I'm just going to take a small portion of ice cream. Very small.
Then you obey and eat up the whole package of ice cream and you also eat two bags of potato chips, and a pizza. The following day you also leave your new healthy habit and start eating junkfood again.
Ok I'm not saying that it's forbidden to enjoy good things in life such as pizza, candy or ice cream. Nice tasty food, desserts etc is a very good thing of course. Enjoy it! I'm just trying to give tips about what might happen when you try to forsake bad food and if you decide to do some fasting.


Don't let your heart envy sinners, But live in the fear of the LORD always.

A page about eating healthy
I have made a new page here about eating healthy, weight loss and eating low carb. Since our body is a temple for the Holy Spirit it's important to know how to eat well.
The more aware you get about foods impact on your health, the better you eat and you feel much better and you are able to serve our Lord Jesus Christ much better!
All glory to God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit!
