Yesterday I bought a direct flight from Gothenburg to Madrid. With Norwegian airlines for only 699 SKR (about 60 USD).
My options were to fly to either 1.Bilbao, 2.Madrid, 3.Barcelona in Spain, or to 1.Biarritz, 2.Bordeaux, or 3.Toulouse in France.
And from there either take a bus or train to the nearest section of el Camino.
I hope to meet Sori whom I contacted through The Last Reformation Map
She answered very quickly and now we are “friends” at WhatsUp.
Our plan is to hit the streets in Madrid. I look forward to share experiences and a good time together!
After I contacted Sori, another person contacted me through the TLR (The Last Reformation network). It was Gatis from Lithuania. He wants to visit Gothenburg in late June. So now I have a new brother and a new sister, in a couple of hours.
Not to forget Shiva from Iran, that I meet yesterday for a second time, at TrädgårdsFöreningen (public garden park).
Her background is Islamic but with atheistic view.
Two years ago I jumped into her, for the first time together with a Iranian married couple. The couple was recently touched by Jesus and now God wanted me to conform the Word, thats why He brought us together (no coincidence).
The husband used to be a hard core muslim, but Jesus opened his eyes! You can see that some people “have it” by looking at them, the “glow” and the Humility within.
This husband had back problems, so I got the opportunity to pray for him. And he was healed from pain and significantly moved.
Shiva told me though, that this guy had to go back to Iran, and now he has probably fallen back, because he is in the WRONG ENVIRONMENT and cant grow in Christ.
This is so important, that I can emphasize it enough: the Seed needs to get into the good ground (church; the Body of Christ, Bible studying e t c)
In Burgos I established a contact with Carmen, who is an evangelistic pastor. My plan is to evangelize with them and to learn how that works in a roman catholic area. Maybe we will meet some el Camino hikers, who need booth psychical and spiritual healing in Christ.
My do to list before I leave i quite long. This brand new blog has to work, and more material to be published. One of the reasons I started the blog Bread4Life.eu was to have something to share with the people I meet.
For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and [their] ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with [their] eyes, and hear with [their] ears, and should understand with [their] heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. But blessed [are] your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous [men] have desired to see [those things] which ye see, and have not seen [them]; and to hear [those things] which ye hear, and have not heard [them].
Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower:
When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth [it] not, then cometh the wicked [one], and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth [it]; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
He said unto them, An enemy hath done this.
The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
[Mat 13:15-30 KJV]
THAT DAY of Harvest is coming! And after the harvest of the Wheat, comes the harvest of the Grapes (Wrath). That revelation was so obvious to me, on my last walk of the el Camino in October 2016. The fields of grain was harvested, but in the regions of Navarra and Rioja; the fully ripe grapes was still on their branches.
First is the harvest of the grain, then the vine, in its own season.
Have you laid down your life to Christ? Have your previous self died with Him? And were you raised up as a new creation (as a seed)?
Does this new life, bear fourth any fruits? Meaning is the Holy Spirit working in you in a sanctification process?
“The gathering of things planted, a natural time of reaping in joy what has been produced during the year in an agricultral community.
Jesus reflects the Bible’s theological viewpoint on harvest when he enjoins believers to ask the “Lord of the harvest” for laborers ( Matt 9:38 ). God stands in control of the harvest time; it is part of his work ( Jer 5:24 ; Amos 4:7 ).”
