In a time when The Marxist Axis of Ultimate Evil China-Russia is using the Western “Therapeutic Democracies,” as Professor Victor Davis Hanson calls it, as easy prey, I have experienced something I started to believe was impossible:
I Have Heard A Man of GOD Speak The TRUTH!
A dear Friend of mine tipped me about a quite unbelievable sermon on Sunday. I say unbelievable, because I have seen so many people professing themselves as men and women of GOD, lying or spreading falsehoods to their congregations. So much so, that it has become a torture to my soul. A torture, because falsehoods and lies are leading Good Men and Women astray, when they should be told the Truth, so they can prepare themselves in Honesty and Good Faith.
Judging from my Friend’s reaction to this Sermon, I knew it had to be something different. I immediately had a feeling that this had to be something rare and maybe even precious. A Preacher preaching the Truth, unvarnished and with love for his flock is all but a fantasy these days, right?
The church communities in my home country, Norway, have all left me. Yes, they have left me. Not the other way around. In Norway, Christmas Eve is the day we celebrate the Birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. It is the evening when children have eye like stars and are trembling with anticipation for the moment the Santa Claus (Julenissen) is handing out their Christmas Presents. Usually also over-primed on a over-the-top dose of sugar! But a few years back, after having been hit again and again with women bishops marrying gay couples and a general watering out of the Faith with more and more militant Socialist Doctrines it came to a point when I realized my church had left me.
My entire adult life I have studied the core texts of islam. When my Protestant church started reading from what can only be described as a hateful book, the koran, on Christmas Eve no less, I realized this is not a Church of Jesus Christ anymore.
Are we to worship a Political Doctrine that preaches hate and rewards “martyrs” who commit suicide and kill a lot of innocent Human beings with a hareem of virgins in “heaven”? A Political Ideology which preaches the murder of the kufar, the “infidels”, Jews and Christians, Hindus and especially Buddhists wherever they find us? A political ideology where a moon god is the deity, and pieces of the Bible and Tora is cut and pasted to fit a political narrative?
And that same church and other church communities in my neck of the woods are all the same. They roll out the red carpet for this new “Master” of the House, while Christians are relegated to 2nd Class. And this offense to our Lord takes place with a solid indoctrination into believing that you have to be a Socialist to be a “good christian”. And it is not at all surprising when you see what is taught at the Seminaries.
And so, the church has left me, people around me are buying into the propaganda, and I have wandered for years without any Christian Community, because there is no Christian Fellowship here. Only a lot of false preachers. But I have not wandered alone. I have had the Word of GOD; Jesus Christ as a true companion. And lately He has started working through me in quite miraculous ways. As a man of Science, as much as my intellect has pulled me in other directions, I have come to a realization lately. I have surrendered. One day I could not take all these false preachers, propagandists and Spiritual Emptiness in my own Life. I surrendered to GOD, wholly and unconditionally.
This wonderful blossoming of a new, Spiritual Life within me “just happened”. If you know me, you also know how my mind is always question things. I am curious in the extreme. I could drive my parents nuts from the time I learnt how to speak, because I would question everything in the minutest details until they had given me an answer that was satisfactory.
Since then, I have been “around the block”. I drifted into agnosticism, on into atheism, then to the Buddhist Philosophies, which as a point of philosophical studies was definitely not wasted. But I returned “home”. Something inside of me said that I belong with GOD. I returned “home”, only to discover that “home”, the church, had left me. Still I could not ignore this Proof that was growing in my mind. It wasn’t anything I had thought about, or planned even. Maybe it was lots of little things? Lots of little signs. One of the weirdest was a dream and a voice saying: “There is a reason I sent you to Ephesus.”
I had by chance, or more likely, not by chance, ended up in Ephesus one day many years ago. I was so far out in the agnostic lane at that point that I didn’t even think about the Biblical History of the ruin city. I was shanghaied by a tour peddler in a small town in Turkey to take a trip to Ephesus. I did remember there was a large, excavated Roman settlement there, and hungry for History, so I jumped on this trip.
But I haven’t though about that “chance” encounter and my trip to Ephesus, and certainly not in relation to the Bible. But a tour guide in Ephesus, which I in hindsight have concluded must have been a devout Christian, showed me the wonderful sights. And she was emphasizing the importance of Ephesus in Christianity and vice versa.
Fast forward many years. I am tormented by the overwhelming Evil, and the constant pain and frustration of watching my fellow men and women mindlessly walking into places of Evil. They, who have grown up in lands of plenty in a Free West, are walking like anesthetized zombies straight into the Traps of Evil. One day I stretched my arms out and opened my heart unconditionally and said to our Lord Jesus:
“I surrender, O’Lord! I surrender to your Word, Jesus Christ! I surrender to you, GOD, no questions asked. Please, I beg you, take me and use me as you see fit!”
And so I returned to the Bible. I had been reading bits and pieces of it, and I was of course Confirmed in my church, I sang in the Church Choir and was in the Christian Fellowship during my Army Career. So, I had a very good grasp on the Bible, at least most of the New Testament. But as I have realized just lately: I might have had a good grasp on the Bible, but the Bible — the Word of GOD — had not had a good grasp on me.
But, nevertheless, I surrendered just recently “out of the blue”. In hindsight, GOD has protected me. By all intents and purposes I should be dead with all the scrapes I have had with death. And looking back, He has always been there, gently nudging me when He has unfolded the beauty of his Nature before my “Scientific Eyes”. And He showed me that I could remove myself from GOD by being an atheist. I could remove GOD from my Life, but all that gave me was a Life without GOD and Hope. It does not take away any Pain — it only takes away the Hope.
And with this sudden, rather inexplicable turn of events “out of the blue” I can feel Him in my Life again. And I realize He let me go astray and find my way back “Home” to Him for a reason. And I have prayed to be guided. I have prayed that He would help me find my way. When an entire Society around you has fallen into darkness and into Evil teachings it can be a struggle to stay on the Path. Teachings like Marxism, are completely antithetical to both Christianity and Judaism.
And where I live, there is no one — at least that I am aware of — that care about the church, other than a place where you do certain things, because that’s what your parents did and the generations before them. Things like baptisms, marriages, funerals and the like. So, having come to this realization, I also realized I must walk this path of Conviction, Conscience and Faith, if necessary alone. In necessary for years, until GOD in His good time delivered me from this Society of Spiritual absence.
But He must have heard my prayers. Because on Sunday February 27, “out of the blue” I got a message from a dear Friend of mine. She was elated about her Pastor and the Sermon he was giving! And now he mentioned this! she wrote. And a short while later; Now he mentioned that! Pinch me! She was so enthusiastic I had to laugh! How many can say that they are enthusiastic about a sermon these days?
And finally the Sermon was uploaded and she shared it with me, and I was able to watch it.
And I watched it.
And this 6’6” brute of a Viking Man was brought to tears. For in that beautiful Sermon I Heard A Man of GOD Speak The TRUTH!
It was such a relief. Listening to and watching Pastor Chandler’s inspiring wake-up-call to his Congregation:
“—Are you paying attention yet!?”
He said, as he preached. And I was. I am! I have been my entire adult Life. But I have never seen such a holistic approach of everything important in Life. In that Sermon a load was lifted off my shoulders! Why?
Because I had started wondering if I was the only man left on Earth that thought this way, and saw Christianity this way, and saw how many false preachers are cropping up all over the place and have seen how Politics has become an arena — not where the mandate of the People is carried out and ideas for solving the practical problems of the Society are being discussed.
And through Pastor Chandler’s Bible Verses, he answered a lot of questions that I have been struggling with. He has given me a deeper understanding of how to live more fully in the times that we are living in. Times that may well be the prophetic End Times. Whatever these times may be; —It is crystal clear to me that how I live my Life in relation to myself, and in relation to others, is extremely important. And by whatever means my Life will end one day, preparing to be ready to stand before God, if I am worthy thereof, has become a central part of my Life.
And something that struck me, is that we cannot really judge exactly what these times are. We see a lot of signs, but we cannot just quit living and wait for the end. It doesn’t work like that, and such unwise thinking and actions will only do harm. We must be ready but we cannot just give up living, which Pastor Chandler summed up very nicely in
Paul in 2 Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat.
So, as I was listening to Senior Pastor Chandler Cutting I realized I was not alone. There is a man across the Atlantic that preaches to his Blessed Congregation what I hold as the Truth in the Words of GOD!
I will be the first to testify: GOD works in mysterious AND surprising ways!
This Sermon at the Lebanon Valley Bible Church is a proof of that. And this Sermon, I can tell you, means the world to me. And I am truly blessed to have witnessed this Man of GOD speak the Truth!
And he said in his Sermon that he will continue with this in the following Sermons. And so, my eyes are as glittering full of stars as a little boy on Christmas Eve waiting to open his presents!
And what better way to share my gift with others, than to share with my readers this Sermon! Not only because it is important to me, but because it is important to every American. It is very important, not only to Americans but to the entire World. Because we all know; America’s Fate will determine our Fate.
So let me just first give you a brief reminder of Satan’s own religion, Marxism…
(or as I sometimes like to write it: M☭R卐ISM,)
is the root and stem of:
and sub-ideologies like:
Leninism, Stalinism, Maoism etc.
And this Satan’s religion has killed more than a Quarter of a BILLION Human Beings in a little over a Century..! And that is not counting Forced and Voluntary Abortions…
It is pure Evil.
And it sells itself through beautiful words and language, with the promise of all kinds of benefits and “Free Stuff”. When Christian Churches turn a blind eye or even embarks on spreading this ideology in covert — and increasingly — even in overt forms, they have themselves become instruments of Evil. Faith and Politics should not necessarily be mixed. But when Politics becomes Evil, it is the Right and Duty of any good, Christian Church to fight that Evil.
Satan isn’t called the “Angel of Light” for nothing. People expect him and his demons to walk around with red heads with horns and pitchforks. They do not realize that he operates in quite the opposite way, selling his tyranny through “Free Stuff” and “Instant Gratification”.
Anyone who has fallen victim to the spread and tyranny of his religion on Earth know it is so. The Proto-Marxist and Marxist Tyrannies that have plagued Mankind is as close to Hell on Earth as you can come.
And so, when I heard this Man of GOD speak the Truth, unafraid — facing this Evil, head on — teaching his Blessed Congregation to beware of this evil that this very moment is spreading throughout the United States of America and throughout the West, it was a huge burden lifted off my shoulders. Now I know, there are Good, Honest People out there doing the Work of GOD!
And so, I recommend all my readers to follow Lebanon Valley Bible Church!
And please, do subscribe to Lebanon Valley Bible Church’s YouTube Channel and spread the Message!
As for my own message about Ephesus, I do not yet know what it means. Maybe I am not supposed to know. Maybe it was just a Wake-Up-Call. Whatever the Reason may be, it has set me on a path striving for Peace in my own Life. I have spent much of my adult Life helping others, mainly in practical terms as part of a voluntary international humanitarian organization. I will continue to help the handicapped, sick, infirm and homeless in the same fashion, but also help them turn to GOD. I obviously cannot do that through my organization that is apolitical and non-religious, but I will do so through my private life. It is much needed around here.
WW3 has, ever since it started on January 29. 1979 at 10:02 AM EST, been a Spiritual Battle just as much, or maybe more, than a Material Battle. So, as I develop Spiritually, and strive towards Righteousness and a Righteous Life, I will focus on helping others in Spiritual Terms as well as Practical Terms.
But back to the general order of the here-and-now for us all. In this Sermon by Senior Pastor Chandler, he told a story about something that has become somewhat of a battlecry in his own Family:
Somebody better do something!
—Senior Pastor Chandler Cutting
So, I decided I would follow that battlecry and do something. So I share this Gift of a Sermon of Truth with you, my Friends!
Here is this wonderful Sermon by Senior Pastor Chandler Cutting. Below the video are the Scriptures he quoted in his Sermon, so you may follow both. I use the New King James Bible when reading the Bible in English. These quotes are from BibleGateway.com, but you may of course follow your preferred Bible.
2 Timothy 3
Perilous Times and Perilous Men
3 But know this, that in the last days [a]perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, [b]unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; 9 but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.
The Man of God and the Word of God
10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for [c]instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2 Peter 2
2 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction [a]does not slumber.
Doom of False Teachers
4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to [b]hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly; 6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; 7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)— 9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of [c]dignitaries, 11 whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord.
Depravity of False Teachers
12 But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption, 13 and will receive the wages of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to [d]carouse in the daytime. They are spots and blemishes, [e]carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, 14 having eyes full of [f]adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children. 15 They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16 but he was rebuked for his iniquity: a dumb donkey speaking with a man’s voice restrained the madness of the prophet.
17 These are wells without water, [g]clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness [h]forever.
Deceptions of False Teachers
18 For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who [i]have actually escaped from those who live in error. 19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of [j]corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into [k]bondage. 20 For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. 21 For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them. 22 But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: “A dog returns to his own vomit,” and, “a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.”

32 “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
41 Then Peter said to Him, “Lord, do You speak this parable only to us, or to all people?”
First Seal: The Conqueror
6 Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the [a]seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” 2 And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
Second Seal: Conflict on Earth
3 When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come [b]and see.” 4 Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.
Third Seal: Scarcity on Earth
5 When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales[c] in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A [d]quart of wheat for a [e]denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”
Fourth Seal: Widespread Death on Earth
7 When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” 8 So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And [f]power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
Fifth Seal: The Cry of the Martyrs
9 When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” 11 Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.
Sixth Seal: Cosmic Disturbances
12 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and [g]behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the [h]moon became like blood. 13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. 14 Then the sky [i]receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. 15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, [j]the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16 and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

Paul in 2 Thessalonians 3:10
10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat.
1 Thessalonians 4:1-13
Plea for Purity
4 Finally then, brethren, we urge and exhort in the Lord Jesus that you should abound more and more, just as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God; 2 for you know what commandments we gave you through the Lord Jesus.
3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; 4 that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, 5 not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God; 6 that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also forewarned you and testified. 7 For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness. 8 Therefore he who rejects this does not reject man, but God, who[a] has also given us His Holy Spirit.
A Brotherly and Orderly Life
9 But concerning brotherly love you have no need that I should write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another; 10 and indeed you do so toward all the brethren who are in all Macedonia. But we urge you, brethren, that you increase more and more; 11 that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you, 12 that you may walk properly toward those who are outside, and that you may lack nothing.
The Comfort of Christ’s Coming
13 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen [b]asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope.
