For Norway: Words & Visions from the past School of Worship Tours

I wanted to make a post of journal entries from the past 3 years of Teen Mania's School of Worship Trips to Norway touring this nation encouraging churches with worship & evangelizing the lost with concerts, dance, & drama. Many times throughout the trips God would speak to our team in visions & give specific words of His heart for Norway. I wanted to post this to encourage the people in Norway of God's thoughts toward you. Norway you are so near to God!

2011 School of Worship & Mary Elizabeth Norway Worship Tour

Words & Visions for Norway:

Nov 9, 2011
"I was in the prayer room maybe over a month ago and while I was praying, God gave me a vision of a light house. Norway being the lighthouse, they will send light all around them. This will lead other nations to look to them for guidance and because of Norway, all of Europe will be led to the safe harbor in Christ. God gave me 1 John 2:8 last night, "Yet it is also new, Jesus lived the truth of this commandment, and you also are living it. For the darkness is disappearing, and the true light is already shinning." Around a month ago God also had me read all the 1 John. He told me to pray that whole book over Norway. I firmly believe that 1 John is an example of what Norway is becoming. They will love one another, living as children of God and having faith in the Father."

"When praying God showed me a vision, it was a man with the armor of God on, he did not have all the pieces on though. Our army grew not everyone had all the pieces of armor but we exuded light, covering each other's missing pieces. We were going towards a dark cloud with hands trying to find the holes in the light. So we had to continue to work with each other to keep our insecurities covered & encouraged. Through, ultimately we had to find our source in the Lord. Psalm 18:28-30 'You light a lamp for me. The Lord, my God, lights up my darkness. In your strength I can crush any army; with my God I can scale any wall. God's way is perfect. All the Lor'ds promises prove true. He is a SHEILD for all who look to him for protection.' We must set insecurities aside, but ultimately we are the Lord's army, we are covered by His shield. Insecurities aside and buried we should continue to bring light, water seeds already planted and plant more seeds through the Lord. But ultimately, show His love, the love of our father. Because He is the Father to the Fatherless!"
- Rachel Pinci

"God gave me a vision last night that there was a street of people and they are wondering aimlessly with red blindfolds on. Worship music started playing and one person started singing and their blindfold falls off. When he starts to sing another person starts to sing and his blindfold falls off also. Then pretty soon all the people started singing and all the blindfolds fall off and they can see. There were a lot of people. I believe the red blindfold represents sin. When it falls off you can see who God is."
- Kayla Bennett

Nov 14, 2011
" Last night we were praying over Norway in  Kasfjord and we were all asking God to see what the eyes of our heart what revival looked like. As John Erling was sharing his picture of Norwegians walking off the streets into the church, I had a picture. It was the bugg zappers that draw the insects to them because of the light & consume them. I prayed that God would draw the Norwegians to the light and consume all the darkness. Light & darkness can not have fellowship (2 Corinthians 6:14) & light always overpowers darkness. As they come to the light darkness will be driven out."
- Hannah Lockard

Nov 14, 2011
"I saw a giant waterfall pouring slowly into a small pond. And all of a sudden the pond was overflowing and the ground started to erode as the water fell faster & greater. This signifies Norway as the pond. As it fills with water (Christians) it begins to break down the ground around it (Europe). And then the growth of Christians becomes faster & faster and the small pond becomes an enormous ocean, but parts of the original pond must be spread out or the ocean will just dry up and be a small pond again. The water must continue to flow faster and faster to maintain growth, just as the Christians must seek after the lord and let His spirit flow more and more. "
- Jaron Haas

Nov 21, 2011
"In Borkenes, during a prayer meeting, I received 2 visions. The first one involved a shadowy figure being pierced by streams of light until it eventually just disappeared. In the second one, there was a storm. Lightning was flashing and rain was pouring down. All of a sudden, everything stopped and I saw a huge rainbow. I also heard the words, "Before a rainbow must come the storm...just like my promises here." Then that same night, I had a dream about a storm, but this time Mary was there. She was talking about the Lord's faithfulness and how we have to go through the storm for God to fulfull His promises. (Psalm 107)"
- Cassee

Nov 23, 2011
"God feels so near in this place, a constant hovering presence, so close I can almost feel His breath sometimes. Yesterday we were praying for Norway and the Lord gave us visions and prophesies. The phrase I kept hearing was 'I will set the captives free.' And oddly enough God has also been speaking to me a lot through Romans 8, where it says in verse 15 'For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you received the spirit of adoption, by whom we cry out, 'Abba Father!' I firmly believe God will break off the spirit of fear clinging to people that walk in it and replace it with His Spirit of Adoption."
- Daci

Nov 23, 2011
"The Sunday before we left for Norway, our church prayed for us and we had a vision of God releasing a phoeniz to take flight towards the sunlight, but Satan was trying to shoot it down with a bow & arrow. Every shot was missed because God's protecting hand surrounded the phoenix. The phoeniz represent  a bird of fire, it represents revival, restoration, & rebirth! It is said that their cry/sreech/ chirp is a beautiful sound. Just like how our prayer, praise & worship is beautiful to God. Phoenix birds are born from the ashes of which they burned up in. So it's like wer'e born again and made new! So the song "Our God" that we've been singing applies to it a bit when we sing "out of the ashes we rise!"
- Heather

November 23, 2011
At the Kasfjord prayer meeting I had a vision of the cross. I was right next to it, and slowly my view began to zoom away from the foot of the cross to where I could slowly see more and more of it, until I had a full view of it. People were gathered around it and were bowing at it, throwing their bodies on the ground and singing to the Lord. After seeing this, my view moved as I started to zoom out even further. However though my distance increased, the size of the cross was fixed in Norway and people were spread all over the world. No matter how far away I was from the earth, the cross was big, still the same size. No matter how far you think you are from the Lord, it doesn't change the work he did on the cross. No matter what you do, He remains the same. Everlasting Father. Faithful and True.  John 16:33
- Tim Hannabus

November 23, 2011
"I can see God bringing rectification here to Norway, and what we do here is going to take root and begin to spread all over Europe. In one vision the Lord showed me for Norway a wild flower that exists in the rain forest. I remember seeing it in a video clip from a science documentary. In the dark this flower curls up and in a sense, allows nothing to access it. But with the first glimpse of light, this flower opens wide for all to see it's beauty. In another vision I remember as we prayed over Bergen from a mountain top, I had the concept of beams of light shining from the houses and buildings in Norway up to Heaven. "
- Jason Wright

November 23, 2011
"Right before the trip God gave me a vision. It was dark, gray, and it looked dead. I realized this was Norway when, in the vision, I looked up and saw the Northern lights. Our team was standing in the middle of the road very silent. As we started walking forward we began to light candles. We started a little light in this dark place. People started looking out their window and a few came out to see what we had to offer. A few members of our team went knocking on house doors, so even more people came out. We started passing out more candles we began to share our flame, we began to light up Norway. The lights grew bigger and bigger. The land was gorgeous. Families were reunited, bondages were broken. Even when we left Norway the light continued to grow. We planted a seed."
- John Anthony Perez

November 23, 2011
"I never thought that going on this trip would change my life so much. I am overwhelmed by how much God revealed Himself to me.... I loved everywhere we went but the little town of Borkenes really stole my heart. I felt like home there... It was really cool how much God did there. While we were there, 7 people made decisions to make Jesus Christ their personal Lord and Savior! it's like God broke chains right away and showed us how much of an impact we are in Norge, not on own own strength but God's. What hit me the hardest there (in a good way) was when we had the children from the school come in to watch our concert. God showed me all the children bowing down to the cross. And also He told me that their generation were the ones who would be the fuel to the revival in Norway and even all of Europe! ...And then when we were in Bergen, I saw a city that God is using to raise up revival! The way I worship also changed in Bergen. I started singing to God like He's right in front of me. It has brought me so much closer to Him."
- Zach Fuehring

Nov 24, 2011
God did so much in Norway this year! So much in our team and in our lives! I think there were 8-9 people who fully gave their lives to jesus on the trip and so many other lives were greatly impacted and land spiritually invested in as we prayed & worshiped. God was glorified & Heaven came closer to Norway! Lord continue to work!!"

School of Worship Trips to Norway -Words & Visions for Norway:


Nov 10 2010
This past year, God has been placing a burden on my heart for the people of Europe. I feel tat God really wants to restore the image of the Body of Christ. In the past centuries, the Church really has messed up, portraying Christianity as a pagan religion that is full of rules and regulations. Deep within my heart I truly believe that God is longing to pour his heart and love out to these people. That he wants to awaken these people to the face that it’s about a relationship with Him, about love and not a set of rules or rituals that you need to follow.
I have had 3 visions about this trip.
1.     There was a young guy in a plaid tshirt and jeans who had found a fountain and sat on the edge of it. There was nothing around for miles. He seemed to be waiting for someone. He began to get thirsty but the fountain was othe only source of water. He looked at it longingly. After a while he played with it, dipping his hands in the cool refreshing liquid longing for his dry thirst to be quenched. He decided to drink it. He dipped his hands down and scooped some water up to his lips. But by the time his hands had reched his mouth, the water had turned to sand. He tried, attempting over and over to quench his thirst. ….. I prayed about it, and I believe the water not only represents sin and temptation, but the false image and rules & rituals of Christianity this is portrayed to Europeans. That so much is promised then and they are constantly disappointed partially because of the lies but also because they are looking in the wrong place of satisfaction. ( “having a form of godliness but denying it’s power...2 Tim 3: 5) 
2.      The other vision I will share is of a map of Europe. After our team left there were several lights in different places in Norway. Over time these grew as the hope of Christ spread. Soon enough all of Norway was glowing with the glory of Chrsit. Then lights went out to other places in Europe, specifically I saw England, France, and Italy. Soon those countries were completely lit up as well. Over time Europe was lit up and sending light across the globe.
3.     The last thing I will share is something or someone rather that I will be looking for. I envisioned that the “Everything” skit that we are performing was in a market place and I was looking for people to speak with. Suddenly my attention is drawn to a girl in the distance who is trying to make herself look busy. I can’t make out her figure well but the look in her eyes is what I see. She knows that she is that girl in the skit. She wants Jesus so bad, to dance with Him , to have Him teach her how to live again, but the fear of rejection and pain is so deep. Fear grips her and instead of coming closer, she turns and begins to walk away. The image freezes and I’m left with the broken desperate look of her eyes in my mind. I can’t shake it, and I know I have to find her.
       -Heather A.

Nov 10, 2010
Coming back to this country is an amazing feeling… Before the trip the Lord spoke to me and gave me a picture of a dark blanket that laid over the country, but there were spots in this blanket where light would shine through. Then I envisioned that the dark blanket ripped from the places where the light was shining through and as the “fabric” disintefrated a white “blanket of love” fell down from above and covered the country. I believe that this trip is meant for the church and awakening the church and as that happens those holes will tear in the fabric and the blanket of love will be revealed. – Erik S.

Nov 10, 2010

As we have prepared our hearts for this trip, the Lord has given me a vision for what will take place in Norway… Someone is on their knees, completely broken. They are in complete darkness & can’t see a single thing. In their hands they are holding their own heart; it’s completely dead. It’s blackened and shriveled up and the ice that surrounds it is keeping it frozen like that. We are carrying matches that have potential to light their way. As we light the candles around them (which represents God’s blessings- love, merchy & hope) that have been hidden by the darkness; the ice begins to melt away and all confusion and hurt starts to fade. Once we have had the chance to light every candle, their heart slowly begins to come back to life, regaining it’s color. As this they are able to stand and go light other’s candles! … I truly believe the Lord is going to use us to bring hope to the broken, I can’t wait to be used by Him! – Cassee

 Psalm 10:18
“You hear, Oh Lord, the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them and you lisent to their cry, defending the fatherless and the oppressed, in order that man who is of the earth may terrify no more.”
This verse is the cry of my heart for Norway. I read this verse on the plane from Houston to Paris. Norway experiences spiritual affliction appressed and desperately need to experience the Heavenly Father. The very heart of the Father is that they “terrify no more.” In Laura Hackett’s song “Love is a Mystery” she sings “Love has a took hold of me and I can’t let go.” I desire to show Norway that there is a love that will take hold of them and it will be so enticing they won’t be able to let go.

“May God be gracious to us and bless us and make His face shine upon us that your way may be known on earth, your saving power among all nations. Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you!! Psalm 67
As we praise God and exalt His name, His face will shine upon us and we will reflect His glory and light onto the people of Norway and the darkness that is covering their eyes will be turned to light so that they may see the Lord. We are not going with lofty words or wisdom of the world but with demonstrations of the spirit and of power that people’s faith would rest not in the wisdom of man but in the power of God. As we were on the bus headed to the airport I envisioned us as an army in a tank with guns and swords suited for battle, we prepared for the war we are fighting. This is exactly what is happening in the spirit. Our guitars are our weapons and of course we are going with the sword of the spirit and the full armor of God to wage war against the spiritual forces of darkness in Norway. We already have the victory in Christ! There is freedom in Norway! – Russ

Nov 11, 2001
I believe that the Church in Norway needs to be set free in the area of worship and exercising spiritual gifts. I believe that when they encounter God’s love and receive it for themselves, they can  be set free from fear and step out in displaying God’s glory through their gifts. I believe the Lord will use our worship to break chains in their lives (singing, dancing, drama)… song you had me write:
Verse 1
Oh the matchless love of God
The boundless measure of grace bestowed
When at the cross You freely gave
Your life so now no debt I owe
So I will praise you all of my days
Forever I’ll proclaim
Hallelujah! My chains are gone, I have been set free
Hallelujah I’m alive eternally!
Hallelujah Christ has won, there’s victory
No power of hell has hold on me
I worship you forever joyfully
Verse 2
I was once chain, enslaved to sin
I followed my wicked ways
Then you came died and rose again
I’ve been redeemed you conquered the grave
It’s in Your presence where the broken are restored
It’s in Your presence where the captive is bound no more

You also laid this on my heart for Norway:
“Oh give me back my joy again, you have broken me- now let me rejoice… restore to me again the joy of your salvation and make me willing to obey you.” Ps 51:8, 12

So last nighty we had the concert at the little church in Harstad. A lady told me that it was the first time in a long time if not ever that the church had a been full for something other than a funeral. Praise the Lord! I had a vision of God, and the hearts of the people here. Their hearts are like hard boiled eggs. There is a hard shell on the outside but the inside is sold and fleshy. God is cracking the shells on the outside of their hearts and beginning to peel it away. He wants to hold their soft hearts  in His hands and warm it with His love.  Then this morning during our prayer meeting I had a picture of the people, the Body, the Christians have gifts that God has given them before, long ago and they were never opened. That the gifts just sat there. Now is the time for the gifts to be opened and to be developed and used.
I read out several scriptures over the people of Harstad, mainly the Body.
Proverbs 28:1 (the righteous as bold as lions)
1 Corinthians 1:5-9
2 Corinthians 3:17
I shared my vision of the guy at the fountain
Romans 8:38-39
Other scripture on my heart:
 1 Corinthians 2:7-13      Philippians 4:4-8
Colossians 1:9-14/ 2:2-7/ 3:12-14
2 Thessalonians 2:15    2 Timothy 1:6-8
1 Peter 2: 9-10      1 John 3:1    1 John 4:18

Last night we had a concert at this small church in Harstad. It was amazing because you could feel the presence of the Lord was there in that place. The mmore and more we worshiped the more we could feel something being built there, a tabernacle. A place where people could feel freedom in the Lord, and with outh fear of what man thinks. A place where the Glory of God is made known, and His presence is always there. I don’t just mean that church I mean Harstad. I believe this town is going to be a city of great faith and passion! One of the cities that leads the rest of Norway to God.

 Nov 14, 2010
On Saturday we did an acoustic set, and as we were playing I got a vision of the scenery behind me, but instead of a fjord I saw the mountains continuing down into a valley with a good-sized mountain creek cutting it in half. Everything was normal Harstad, but the water was flowing uphill into town. It meant that God’s love was flowing into Harstad and that the people carrying the church there were about to get some help. This reminded me of John 4.

Nov 14, 2010
Oh beloved, Norway! I cannot wait to see you rise up as a nation for God and as a nation of worship... Before we arrived and we were praying for the trip I got two words from the Lord. One was that  “the people of Norway will be on their knees worshiping the Holy One!’ and the other as “children with broken hearts praising God.’ I really believe that the Lord will do these things . There was also a vision. The vision was the people/ teens on their knees hands in the air. Christ will be exalted! I want to love them so they see you. So they see you love them! Rise them up and build your people! Build your nation of worship! Amen.
The other morning I had a vision. It was during a prayer meeting. I saw a Lite Brite toy. The picture on the lite brite was a map of the world and there were pegs all over America and other places lit up and the lit up pegs were the percentage of Christianity in the nation. When I looked at Norway, the whole nation was lit. I was sorta excited but found it kinda ridiculous, so I blew it off until Aslak got up and said something about candles and then Biana said something about light and candles too so I couldn’t just blow it off. God gave me that special picture. He will brightly light the nation of Norway!!

What an incredible weekend in Harstad! Yesterday when I spoke for the teaching it went over so well… People told me after how it impacted them greatly and they never heard a teaching like that before. I was surprised and glad that you spoke through me about this subject. There is such a need of equipping the people in worship. John told me it is very rare in Norway especially in the North to find spiritled worship leaders. It was interesting how I even saw a shift in their worship after the teaching. They were more expressive, a freedom came. At the end I sang my song I wrote for Norway and something broke through to the hearts of the people, a revelation of the power of their worship and the significance in their part.
…This morning’s prayer meeting was powerful as we had so much vision behind our prayers. My team & others read scriptures and prophesied over this area. People who were normally timid spoke up and prayed and shared visions you gave them about Norway.
Is. 12:3 “Therefore with JOY you will draw water from the wells of salvation.”
there’s been many prophecies with wells being dug up in that area. Heather had a vision before the trip about a guy drinking from a dry well and then someone giving him living water and he left the empty fountain he was at.
“You will be like a well watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. Those from among you shall build the old wates places, you shall raise up the foundations of many generations, and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Streets to dwell in.” Is. 58: 11-12
- Mary Elizabeth

Nov 15, 2010
The Lord gave me different pictures during one of the prayer meetings. At one point I just saw a clear ocean water moving around and then crashing waves. Later I saw a jesus-sort-of figure with a crown. He was on top of the building we ere praying in showing that He reigns over that place. I then saw a plastic figure holding a key. I saw the key belonging to a gate when opened the waters gushed forth. During he meeting I prayed for God’s love to be released & rush over Norway….
As we use the gifts God has given us our lights will shine and more facets of His glory will be made known. As the people of Norway step out in their gifts, more of Norway will be lit up for the Lord until almost all of Norway is brightly shinning His glory.
 “ You are the light of the world, a city set on a hill  cannot be hidden. Neither do they hide it under a basket…Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

So the other night I had a dream that after we returned home to the U.S., Mary  Vorrath was arranging for a School of Worship to be opened in Norway. Opportunities were presenting themselves to begin to open this school. One was making the preparation and so many people were excited for this new opportunity. It spread to other countries as other were students who came and took what they learned at the School of Worship. The young generation was rising up.

Nov 16, 2010
I had a vision of a man exploring the forest. He lost track of time and before he knew it he was unsure of wehre he was.  It was dark and the cold was starting to take it’s toll. He started crying out even though no one was around to hear him; but God did! Then I saw the leaders in the prayer conference from Harstad and the Lord gave them a message that there was a man lost in the forest and commanded them to go find him. So they got their flashlights and torches and set out to find the man. After searching for a while, they found him just as he was ready to give up and his body was shutting down. They people of Harstad took him back, nursed him back to health and then in turn he ran through out the town sharing God’s love.

Nov 22, 2010
God gave me a scripture to read Prov 2 over the leaders of Bergen. And I asked the Lord for him to sbe speaking through me through my prayer. He gave a vision of 7 GIGANTIC angels on the each mountain top. You could only see the feet and legs of the angels. And the rest of their body was in the Heavens. They stood on these mountains with such maturity and a conquering spirit. And the city was filled with the Glory of God. I couldn’t see the city because God’s glory was so thick and tangible. God be glorified in the city of Bergen! Let their be revival!
- Carlos C

Nov 25, 2010
Bergen was great, and God has HUGE plans for the city. When we were singing and praying over it at the top of the mountain, I saw something particular. There were dark clouds all around the city, but there was one place where there was a break in the clouds and light was streaming through from the sun. It reminded me of Erik’s vision of the black sheet and God’s glory shining down on the city. Then we danced in the street square one night which was awesome. It was cool to see how God drew people unto himself as we lifted up  His name. God has great things for Nowary. So arise, be awakened to His love for you. – Heather A.



July 16, 2009
I had a vision when praying for Norway. I saw a map of Norway and a 3D door opened standing on it. My students were then going through the door with candles in their hands lighting up specific wicks of a region in Norway and it was to spread all over.

A couple weeks ago God gave me a vision about Norway. There was a stage at the end of this street, and the surroundings looked very gloomy, everyone walking around looking down and not really talking to anyone. Then the worship band started to play and instead of music coming through the speakers it was snow! Some of the whitest snow I’ve ver seen. Looking out from the stage now you see the people playing, laughin, smiling, and talking. It was really amazing, I believe that God has amazing plans . I pray that a spiritual cleansing would come over Norway, white as snow! Us us as tools for the advancement of your Kingdom O Lord. Amen. Norway is for a big surprise. Wann know what is is? The LOVE OF GOD!  It’s gunna be awesome. – Erik S

Nov 12, 2009

At one church service, I saw our group carrying sledgehammers as we approached Norway. Despite the walls that are in place, the Lord is about to do some redecorating of His own, if you catch my drift. I believe that we will be immersed in the presence of God to such a degree that we will be unable to just do anything except worship and glorify Him with others around us who’ll be in the depths! God is up to somethings, for sure. – Michael J.

Nov 12, 2009
When the trip was beginning to develop I felt the Lord speaking so heavily about bringing the light into this nation and ethese people. The light of the gospel and his presence that our worship would release this light of the Lord and the darkness would have to flee, it has to. So I have the expectancy of light breaking forth penetrating the darkness that it would be exposed. Also that we would carry the presence with us so as we travel around and that we would so illuminate Christ & reflect it upo this nation. Another thing the Lord spoke was He was going to move mountains! The mountains in our lives as a team and Norway. We have to have faith he can do it, that it is not to big for the Lord to handle, but swe will be given the gift of faith and cast these mountains and barriers into the sea!  … Oh yes I forgot! There will be an explosion on the church of Norway that the buildings would not be able to hold them all in. I got a vision of the church building and people just flooding in bursting out the doors there were so many people. Let it be, Lord!! – Amy K.

Nov 12, 2009
The Lord has just been telling me one time after another..EXAMPLE. That word just keeps coming to me, The Lord is just saying “Be an example in the smallest things you do- worship, prayer, words, thoughts, deeds” These 5 things he has commanded me to improve in my life because I believe he is going to use them as an example for Christ. I feel as if the people of Norway will simply be at awe just by our team being faithful in these things. They way we worship and pray. Through our words-thoughts & deeds we will influence the way they view Christ. “Just being a Holy Example” this is what He has commanded me to do.  – Cole H.

Nov 12, 2009
The vision I got for Norway didn’t develop until after our fasting retreat. I believe our time here is not only going to change our lives, but the lives of the people we’re leading. I believe that hearts are going to be softened by the Holy Spirit and they’re going to be so blessed! The walls that the devil has put up are going to break down! I want to write a word from the Lord that He gave to my mom yesterday morning:
“A new work will begin where they are going. They are a bullwork for my purpose. This group of young people are strong! They are commited unto me! Pray that the hearts of the people will be softened. Pray for the strength and the unity of the Teen Mania School of Worship team. The devil will try to snatch the victories that I do. They must be aware and vigilent in prayer. I will be with them in all they do, but they must be strong and unified in my name. Protect the anointing. Stand together in love and unity of the bretheren. I will rebuke the devourer in their behalf saith the Lord your God. “

We are going to stand united as the body of Christ and walk in the victories that we are going to win on behalf of our God!
- Lexi S.

Nov 14, 2009
I have 4 expectations for this trip for Norway…
1.     LOVE: God is love, and I want the people of Norway to see that. With depression being so rampant, I want us as a team & myself to show the people of Norway the love of Christ.
2.      FAITH: That the children of God here continue to dive deeper. Whith Norway being so prosperous that they do not grow tired and lose faith by the comforts around them. That they can see God as the deliverer through many things.
3.     HOPE: The light that shines in the darkness. That these people become the light to the earth, showing how people can be surrounded by depression, darkness, and suicide can believe in a God who is their light, and thus ignite His children to be a light in this world.
4.     FREEDOM: that freedom will reign. The freedom to worship as they please, express it to God and love on Him how they feel led to love Him!

This is the word the Lord told me for Norway…
Ephesians 5:8-21
“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said ‘Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.’ Be very careful then, how you live-not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.” Eph. 5:8-21

Harstad Prayer Conference
Lord, you showed me a few visions. The first vision I saw ships with large crosses on them coming into Norway. I don’t know if you are going to use that business or the people on ships but you will use them for your glory. I felt it was a part of the revival you’re doing here.
The next vision I saw was Jesus on the clouds shining brightly and there were beams of light going forth from different parts of Norway all connected to eachother and to Jesus. You showed me the beams were Believers as mirrors reflecting the glory of God shining brightly lighting up the nation as they are all connected to eachother as well.
The 3rd vision was of me. You came on your white horse and rescued me. I was in a wedding dress. Yet it was ripped and torn & I had dirt on my face, I was exhausted and fell limp in your arms. You showed me I just came from battle fighting for your heart with everything in me I was your warrior bride and you came just in time to rescue me. The thing that stuck out to me was that I wasn’t this pure & spotless bride on the outside when you got me but then as soon as I was in your arms on your horse what was on the inside permeated to the outside and I glowed in purity & righteousness. I felt your deep pleasure for me as I layed my head on your chest. I understood how the Bride needs to learn to fight and to persevere through difficulties. She needs to learn spiritual warfare. The only way she is going to persevere is through her eyes set on Jesus the Bridegroom. She will fight for her lover. She will learn to share in the fellowship of the Lover’s sufferings. There will be battle wounds yet the wounds will turn into glory because she will also share in His glory. What is on the inside, the drive of love to persevere is what will make her a pure & spotless glorious Bride. The Groom will find great pleasure in her because her love was tested and she endured to the end.

Nov 15, 2009- Harstad
Yesterday morning during prayer, I felt you speak to me, “ Revival starts in the prayer closet.” Revival has started in our hearts and will spread throughout Harstad and Norway. So last night the service was going on and I was praying in the other roomI felt you say that what I pray, you are going to answer. I prayed for a covering (a shield) for the Holy Spirit to take over, for Christians’ mind barriers to be broken along with other mind barriers in all of us, as well as for callings to be placed on people. Man, Lord, you took over. During worship I felt you were speaking through me to Krisian (a young Norwegian man claiming to be atheist attending the conference) but not to where he heard me. You were saying things like, “Kristian, I am calling you, will  you answer me? Today is the day of salvation.” You answered!!! He heard your call! (He gave his life to the Lord that night) He received his calling as well to be a prophet. – Hannah L.

I got this prophetic word for Norway. “My blood has purchased this land. My Son was the sacrifice. I am drawing all men unto me and I will make them righteous in my sight. Warriors of Light are sweeping this nation. Darkness must flee and My Kingdom will prevail. It is no coinincidence the Norwegian flag is made the way it is. The red is my blood that has purchased this land. The cross is my instrument and will be the symbol I use to declare this nation as my own. And the white is the righteousness that men will come to through their repentance. Repent Norway. Seek me out! Make my name great and lift me up and I will use you to draw all men unto me. I will restore this nation and I will heal your land. You will call on my name and I will answer you. I will be your God and you will be my people.” Says the Lord

Word spoken over us & Norway at YWAM base Nordton:
Isaiah 24: 15-16 “In the lands beyond the sea, praise the name of the Lord, the God of Israel. We hear songs of praise from the ends of the earth, songs that give glory to the righteous one!”
-golden bridges between islands- yet islands are covered in darkenes
-dark cloth of gray fog unrolling off Norway from the North
-Praise the Lord through worship & intercession is key to break the strongholds & bring the light- blow the trumpet!
-Cliffs of rock are covered in black dust yet in the cracks are gold. The cracks= people unexpected, the weak being used
-Don’t dig out the gold but drive out the black dust with the tools I give you-WORSHIP! There is a gold inside each person & worship will bring it out, it will rise up inside them. As you worship doing the very thing you were created for, all creation will stand in awe and praise Him.

Nov 21, 2009 Ørnes
Our last event was at Ørnes and on Thurs night we were expecting a lot of teens from going into the schools and inviting them…. There was a good amount of people there. Throughout the night I kept sensing that this particular group of kids were gettinginto trouble. Right before I was going to begin sharing, I saw them outside and the Holy Spirit lead me to get them inside…and I saw them passing drugs around. I began to talk to them and convinced them to come inside & that I would give them a shout out in the mic. Praise the lord- it worked! … I saw God take crumbled up words from my testimony & gave the altar call and He blessed it with His presence as He drew people to Himself. I remember seeing the majority of the group of “trouble-makers” come to the front for prayer. Only 2 girls were left and I saw one of them violently throw her jacket down on the chair and she went up with the other girl to the altar… Ruth told me that one of the guys who was with the drug group, went up for prayer and he legitimately wanted to stop getting into trouble. She said that the group expressed for the first time in a long time they felt like someone cared for them. Praise God!! 14 youth gave their lives to Jesus in Ørnes.

National Youth Leader Conference

I had a great time this past weekend at the National Youth Leader Conference teaching the Worship Track & leading worship. We had an amazing time in God's presence together. I just love when fellow worship leaders & musicians get together & learn from the Holy Spirit as He equips us to walk out fully in the calling of God in our lives. This is my passion & what I am living for... to see the worshippers arise in the earth!
