My ministry in Finland
God gave me a vision in 1985:
“I stood in front of crowds of people in many European nations (Finland was the first of them) and served them under the operation of the Spirit. God was using me powerfully, to heal those with broken hearts & lives. He lifted up those that had been trodden down by men and Satan and He set free those that were kept captive by unseen forces that afflicted them. All of these works of the Spirit took place while I was in a totally restful attitude”.
This vision agrees totally with the mission God gave to Jesus: “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind to release he oppressed. To proclaim the year of the Lord's favor”. Luke 4:18-19.
And this was again a manifestation of what was prophesied about the ministry of Messiah by the prophet Isaiah: “He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives, and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who morn, and provide for those that grieve in Zion – to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness
and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair”. Is 61: 1-3
My Indian coworker & intercessor, Paul Dass, received another vision on a visit to Finland in 2005. He saw a clay pot that was broken in many pieces and scattered all over Finland.
It represented Finnish people with broken hearts scattered all over the land. Next, he saw them gather and kneel in front of the cross, in prayer and surrender. There were tens of thousands and God said that He will visit Finland with revival and heal the broken lives.
From the year 2005 onwards healing & deliverance has started to flow in Finland! God has stretched out his mighty arm to heal broken hearts, lift downtrodden & set captives free. It is happening! God’s time for fulfillment has come! There are wonderful testimonies. He has used my book, Isän Sylissä, to bring light to many, healing to some & connections that bring healing. His power is at work! In light of the huge emotional hurt & pain that exists nationally in Finland, the need for ministry of healing this brokenness is great. People's minds, hearts & emotions are hurting so much. They cannot deal with it, process it without some help from outside. This demands sensitive, compassionate inner healing & counseling type of ministry to help them - combined with deliverance ministry. God has also started to bring clear presentation of this deliverance ministry to Finland lately. Many books about this subject have been published by many Christian publishers & seminars are being arranged. I have own books published and more are coming. Freedom is becoming a reality. God's help is here.
At the same time I have started to form a team and to train workers that can minister such healing & deliverance through many seminars. The need is so great and God is at work to meet it. The «spiritual polar ice» that covered Finland for many generations is melting! God bless & strengthen you, whether you look for healing or freedom or you want to be trained!
In Father's love,
