By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
    My body is the temple of the Living God. He lives in me and I live in Him. I am hid with Christ in God therefore I am secure!
     No weapon that is formed against me will prosper and every tongue that shall rise against me in judgement I shall condemn. This is the heritage of God's children, and because I am God's child it belongs to me! (Isaiah 54: 17)
    I do not deserve the great honour to be called a son of God. In no way, am I worthy or even close to being worthy of such an honour. It is because of Jesus Christ's Redemptive work on Golgotha that this grace has been given to me. His love and mercy has been given and is available to all who will believe and receive His forgiveness and the gift of eternal life! (Rom. 8: 14-17)
    You might say: "How can a lost and condemned individual, who was once a sinner by birth, nature and choice, lay claim to so great an inheritance?  And to be cleansed, redeemed and lifted to a position of son-ship with the Eternal God, the Ever Living One Who is pure, righteous, all knowing and all powerful?" (John 3: 16,17, 36)
     Eternal Salvation is a gift from God. It had nothing to do with me. It is all because of Calvary and what happened there!  The spotless, holy Son of God took upon Himself my sins and my diseases and by His precious BLOOD paid the awful price to SATISFY the Demands of God's Divine Justice! (Rom. 8: 1,2,32)
     I am saved by the grace of God, through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross. It is a gift of God, not of works lest any man should boast. For we are God's workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has foreordained that we should walk in them. In short, I have been lifted from my previous position of spiritual poverty, condemnation and shame, and given a seat at His table! (Eph. 2: 8,9)
     Oh, the wonder of it all! How can it be that my God would die for me? Yes, He took me by the hand and led me to the Promised Land. Oh, how can it be that my God would die for me and grant me Liberty? It is only and all because of Calvary!
     I repeat, it is only because of His great love, mercy and grace to a poor lost sinner like me, and to millions more who have trusted in His Promises. St. Paul assures us that we are now, "heirs and joint heirs with Christ!"
     It sounds too far - fetched, unreal and impossible, but there it is in black and white in the Holy Scriptures; and in actual reality, a changed life by the power of the Holy Spirit:
     "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. The Spirit Himself beareth witness with our spirit that we are the children of God. And if children then heirs; heirs and joint heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with Him that we may be also glorified together." (2 Cor.5: 17; Rom. 8: 14-17)
    Like St. Paul, I cried out: "O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?" (Rom.7: 24). And Jesus came to me in my despair and washed me whiter than the snow and made me an heir and a joint heir with Him. (Is. 1:18)
    We died with Christ through the New Birth. We were buried with Him through water baptism. We were raised from the dead with Him as we came up from the water. We sat down with Him in Heavenly places when we received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. And when Jesus Christ returns, we will come with Him and forevermore live with Him! (Rom.6: 3-11)
     I am bone of His Bone and flesh of His Flesh and a member in particular of His Body, the Church. (Ephesians 5: 30); There shall no Evil befall me, neither shall any plague come nigh unto my dwelling! (Psalms 91:10). My Lord, Saviour and God has promised: "I am the Lord that healeth thee." (Exodus 15:26):
    "And He hath sent His Word to deliver me" from all sickness, disease, fear and untimely death. (Psalms 107:20); "For He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and with His stripes we are healed." (Isaiah 53: 4, 5)
      I join with King David who said: "Bless the Lord, O my soul and all that is within me, bless His Holy Name. Bless the Lord, O my soul and forget not all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities and healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that they youth is renewed like the eagles." (Psalms 103: 1-5)
     I have no reason to fear because Jesus Christ is my PEACE! He said: “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14: 27)
      Again my Lord has promised: “Fear thou not, for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness.” (Is. 41:10); “God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Tim.1:7)
    Almighty God chose the Children of Israel as His peculiar nation. He raised them up as His Covenant people. They were to be for SIGNS and WONDERS and to preach by Word and deed His Mighty Salvation.
     "Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in Mount Zion." (Isaiah 8: 18)
       Believers in Jesus Christ are also to be Signs and Wonders for Christ in this wicked world. When people see us, they will wonder at the transformation God has wrought in us, spiritually, mentally and physically! (Heb.2: 9-13)
    What a blessed People the Jews are, beginning with the great MIRACLE that the Lord gave Abraham and Sarah! Abraham being impotent due to his advanced age of 99 years and the deadness of Sarah’s womb did not hinder His will in their lives. Down through the centuries the Jews have been for Signs and Wonders!
    When Napoleon Bonaparte’s Army was camped on the outskirts of Milan, Italy he demanded the Archbishop to prove the existence of God. The Archbishop pointed to his leading General, Messina, who was a JEW. Napoleon got the message – No God, No Jew! He shouted a command to his troops, swung his horse around and galloped away from Milan without firing a shot!
     When Sarah was 90 years of age, she gave birth to Isaac the son of Promise! And by the Word of the Lord, Isaac’s son Jacob was renamed Israel, thereby making Abraham the father of the Jewish people. And since he was justified by FAITH in God's Word, we are the children of Abraham through faith in God’s Crucified, Risen and Glorified Son, Jesus Christ!
     The Holy Bible states: “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us…that the BLESSING of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through FAITH.
    “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many. But as of One, And to thy SEED, which is CHRIST…And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to Promise.” (Rom.7:13-29) Thank God, He made a way for us:
      "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar (purchased) people, that ye should show forth the praises of Him, who hath called you out of darkness into the mavellous light. Which in times past were not a people, but are now the people of God, which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy." (1 Peter 2:9,10)
     By Gods grace, I have carried His Gospel to multitudes across the world for the past 50 years and have witnessed His great Signs and Wonders, compassion, love and power out-poured upon the heathen. I am so grateful to our Lord Jesus, for His wonderful presence wherever His name has been exalted and His Gospel preached!
     I sense, however, as the years come and go that we are witnessing far too little of His power in the Church, than we need to fully declare His Goodness, Greatness and Majesty to an increasingly lost and needy world and hurting Church!
      As my good friend, BOB ROSIN, used to say: “It is one thing to start. It’s another thing to finish.” He was speaking, of course, about the Christian life. My point, however, concerns God’s Word which promises that He will answer our prayers when we approach His throne in humility, repentance and faith.
    And secondly, that we will witness the return of the glory of God in the End-Time Church which our Lord started on the Day of Pentecost. May the Holy Spirit have FREE course in our hearts, lives and Churches!
     St. Luke wrote: “The former treatise have I made O Theophilis, of all that Jesus BEGAN TO DO and teach, until the day in which He was taken up…” (Acts 1:1,2)
     The implication is that JESUS would CONTINUE to DO His works and teach His truth through His followers. He had spent about one third of His time teaching and preaching and about two thirds of His time healing the sick and casting out demons! And He gave much time in private prayer to His Heavenly Father!
      It seems clear to me that this should be the pattern we must follow if we are to see the desired results our hearts yearn for! In His High Priestly Prayer, He stated: “As Thou has sent Me into the world, even so have I sent them into the world.” (John 17: 18)
    St. Mark states: So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, He was received up into Heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the Word with signs following. Amen.” (Mark 16: 19, 20).
     What were the SIGNS that followed the preaching of God’s Word, the Gospel of Christ? They cast out unclean spirits, believers received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and spoke in unknown tongues, supernatural protection was given them, and the sick and deceased were healed!
 The Holy Record states: “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and power who went about doing GOOD and healing all who were oppressed of the Devil for God was with them.” (Acts 10:38)
     Jesus promised to send upon His followers, the same blessed HOLY SPIRIT which had anointed Him, and that even greater miracles would occur after His arrival. His presence and power would implement the fledgling Church in His absence and it would be so great that they would carry His Gospel to the ends of the world!
   He promised: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in My name, I will do it.” (John 14:12-14)
    “Forgive us, O Lord, for our lack of love for Thy Word, dedication to Thy Church, compassion for the Lost and reverence for Thy Holy Presence! We thirst for the manifestation of Thy almighty, unlimited and enduring power in our midst and the notable miracles which attended the Early Church on a daily basis!
     “Personally, as Thy servant, O’ Lord, I confess that my total faith in Thy Shed Blood and dependence on Thy presence at all times. I trust Thy Truthfulness, Faithfulness and Righteousness in hearing and answering my PRAYER for an out-pouring of the Holy Spirit and His accompanying Gifts with SIGNS, WONDERS and MIRACLES.
    “Dear Lord, without Thy Presence and the Gifts of the Holy Spirit we are useless and Thy Church is ineffective. Come Holy Spirit and direct Thy Church, lead us in Thy way and give us the same compassion, love, faith and power as our Saviour had and Thy apostles, disciples, deacons and all believers exhibited in the beginning of the Church!
     In the precious name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”

Obama's White House Girlie-Men Better not Mess with Israel's Manly-Man and his Secret Weapon - Pastor Max Solbrekken


White House tries to ease flare-up over Netanyahu insults

Published October 29, 2014
Israel's Secret Weapon

WH officials reportedly called Netanyahu names like 'coward'
The White House on Wednesday sought to tamp down the controversy over a magazine piece that detailed deep tensions between the U.S. and Israel – and quoted an unnamed senior Obama administration official calling the Israeli leader a “chickenshit.” 
Administration officials, including White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, did not deny the quote. They also did not signal there would be any robust effort to find out who said it. 
But Alistair Baskey, spokesman for the National Security Council, said the criticism does not reflect how the rest of the administration views Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  
“Certainly that's not the administration's view, and we think such comments are inappropriate and counter-productive,” Baskey said in a statement. “Prime Minister Netanyahu and the president have forged an effective partnership, and consult closely and frequently, including earlier this month when the president hosted the prime minister in the Oval Office.”
At the same time, Baskey acknowledged they “do not agree on every issue,” including on settlement activity that the U.S. considers “illegitimate.”
Officials quoted in The Atlantic magazine article, written by Jeffrey Goldberg, were far more blunt in their characterization of those differences. Goldberg quoted one anonymous senior administration official saying: “The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickenshit.”
The article said Obama administration officials have also described Netanyahu over the years “as recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous, and ‘Aspergery.’”
The comments prompted criticism among Republican and Jewish leaders.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Tuesday accused the administration of “hurling expletives” at the Israeli leader. 
House Speaker John Boehner also condemned the "disrespectful rhetoric used time and again by this administration with respect to the special relationship the United States has with the state of Israel." 
He added: "The president sets the tone for his administration. He either condones the profanity and disrespect used by the most senior members of his administration, or he does not. It is time for him to get his house in order and tell the people that can't muster professionalism that it is time to move on." 
That statement led to a pointed rebuke from Earnest, who said Boehner himself is known for using "salty" language. 
"It's a little rich to have a lecture about profanity from the speaker of the House," Earnest said, while also saying the reported comments do not reflect the administration's views. Earnest said he'd be "surprised" if Obama knows who made them. 
State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and others "don't view" the language used in the article as "appropriate or accurate." 
Dan Gillerman, former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, told Fox News that if the quotes are accurate, “I think it’s shameful.”
“This is not the way you speak about your only ally, about the only democracy in the Middle East, especially not when the Middle East is so volatile,” he said Wednesday.
The Atlantic piece described a relationship that has steadily gone south over the years, and that it claimed is moving toward a “full-blown crisis” – which could get worse after the midterm elections next week. A possible nuclear agreement with Iran is a major factor that could cause more friction.
Goldberg, in his piece, laid plenty of blame on Netanyahu, and reported that sources say he’s likewise “written off” the Obama administration. He noted that the U.S. is angry with him for his settlement stance in the West Bank.
One official also told The Atlantic they don’t think Netanyahu would launch a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear infrastructure.
“The good thing about Netanyahu is that he’s scared to launch wars,” another official was quoted as saying. The official reportedly criticized him, though, for doing little to reach an accord with the Palestinians and allegedly being more interested in political preservation.
In the wake of the article, Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, called for President Obama to "name, apologize for, and repudiate" the person who offered the “chickenshit” insult, according to The Algemeiner.
"It is rather ironic that a senior American official is prepared to curse his friends, yet when it comes to the mortal enemies of the United States -- as the Iranians discovered during the recent nuclear negotiation -- praise is heaped on them,” Hier said.

Fox contributor Pastor Robert Jeffress tells OReilly: Islam is a false religion

                               Pastor Robert Jeffress on Fox News on Oct. 24, 2014
Fox News contributor Pastor Robert Jeffress insisted on Friday that he “prayed” for individual Muslims while denouncing their religion as a whole in an interview with host Bill O’Reilly.
You have to tell the truth, Bill, Jeffress said. And the truth is, Islam is a false religion built on a false book written by a false prophet.
Jeffress told OReilly that recent attacks in Canada and New York made it impossible to deny the relationship between Islam and terrorism.
Fact: Mohammed, the founder of Islam, was a man of violence who committed all kinds of atrocities, including ordering 600 Jews to be beheaded, he argued. When these terrorists engage in these acts, they are simply following the example of their spiritual leader.
Conversely, Jeffress said, Christians occasionally do goofy things and commit acts of violence.
OReilly pointed out with a sense of fairness that the American Muslim community is largely peaceful, which Jeffress agreed with. But less than five minutes earlier, Jeffress blasted Muslim leaders for allegedly not speaking out against the attacks.
When you have a Muslim act of terrorism, why, Muslim leaders for the most part run for cover, Jeffress said. You have to drag them kicking and screaming into denouncing these acts. Facts are stubborn things, but those are the facts.
Jeffress did not mention the fact that the National Council of Canadian Muslims, the Kanata Muslim Association and local imams in Ottawa, Canada have already condemned the attacks by Michael Zehaf-Bibeau on Wednesday.

'Canada will never be intimidated,'

Harper says after shootings in Ottawa

Two “despicable attacks” on Canadian soldiers this week will not weaken the country’s resolve to fight terrorism at home and abroad, a sombre Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Wednesday.
Harper addressed the nation hours after a young soldier was gunned down at the National War Memorial in Ottawa and dozens of shots fired inside Parliament ended with the shooter’s death.
The attacks in Ottawa occurred just two days after a Quebec soldier was killed in what Harper called an Islamic State-inspired attack in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, not far from Montreal. The suspect in that case was killed by police after a brief chase.

Bush in 2007 delivered eerily accurate warning about Iraq unrest

Published September 11, 2014
A prophetic warning from then-President George W. Bush before he left office about what would happen if the U.S. withdrew troops from Iraq too soon is getting new attention in light of the Islamic State’s gains, as each of his predictions appears to be coming true.

Bush,  as discussed on "The Kelly File," made the remarks in the White House briefing room on July 12, 2007, as he argued against those who sought an immediate troop withdrawal.  
“To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region and for the United States,” Bush cautioned. He then ticked off a string of predictions about what would happen if the U.S. left too early.
“It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to Al Qaeda.“It would mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale.“It would mean we allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan.  
“It would mean we’d be increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.”
Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen says all these predictions have come true. “Every single thing that President Bush said there in that statement is happening today,” he told Fox News.
To Bush’s first warning, the Islamic State terror group is effectively the successor to Al Qaeda in Iraq – and they’ve overrun several major cities in Iraq’s north while claiming broad swaths of territory in Syria. Further, the group has been behind mass killings of Iraqi civilians as well as the recent execution by beheading of two American journalists.
The Obama administration has warned that the group’s violence threatens to approach genocide levels.
Though President Obama says combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq, American troops are nevertheless returning in some capacity. The president on Wednesday announced an expanded airstrike campaign against the group in Iraq and Syria, and is sending hundreds more U.S. military personnel into Iraq.
Some lawmakers and analysts say this could have been avoided if the Obama administration had left a residual force in Iraq, or at least had responded sooner to ISIS’ gains in northern Iraq over the past year.
Bush, before he left office, signed an agreement setting the stage for U.S. troops to withdraw by December 2011.
Obama, though, was urged by military advisers to keep thousands of service members after that deadline to help the shaky Iraqi government. But when Washington and Baghdad were unable to reach a renewed agreement governing the presence of U.S. forces in the country, the Obama administration withdrew virtually all troops at the end of 2011.
“We needed to leave a stabilizing force behind, and we didn't.  And of course, we know the rest is history,” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told Fox News.

OTTAWA, Ont. – An Ottawa man convicted of a terrorism charge as part of a homegrown conspiracy was handed a 12-year sentence on Thursday.
Misbahuddin Ahmed, 30, had been found guilty of conspiring to facilitate a terrorist activity and participating in the activities of a terrorist group.
The former hospital technician had been acquitted by a jury on a third more serious count — possession of explosives with intent to do harm.
                Possible Jihadi Attack in NYC
Earlier today a man with an axe approached a group of NYPD officers and, in an unprovoked attack, struck two of them with the axe before succumbing to a hail of bullets from the officers.
The hatchet-wielding man who attacked four YPD officers earlier today and was then shot dead by police may have had ties to ISIS, sources told Vocativ.                                                                                               Law-enforcement sources we spoke with identified Zale Thompson as the armed man who charged at a group of NYPD uniformed police assembled on a street corner in Jamaica, Queens, at around 2 p.m. today. The 32-year-old Muslim, who lived in Queens, struck one of the officers in the back of the head with his hatchet and gashed another on the arm, the police said.

Canadian soldier, gunman killed  
in attack on Ottawa capital complex
A Canadian soldier was shot dead and a suspect killed in a brazen attack on the Canadian Parliament complex in Ottawa Wednesday morning that left the nation's capital on lockdown just two days after a terror attack in Quebec, officials said.
The shots rang out just before 10 a.m., when a guard at the National War Monument was fatally shot. The gunman next ran into the Parliament Hill building, where one MP reported hearing as many as 30 shots fired and a sergeant at arms was later credited with shooting the suspect dead. In the following moments and hours, Royal Canadian Mounted Police converged on the scene, more shots were reported less than a mile away near a mall and officials told Ottawa residents to barricade themselves in their homes as they searched for more possible gunmen.

“All the details are not in, but the sergeant-at-arms, a former Mountie, is the one that engaged the gunman, or one of them at least, and stopped this,” Fantino said from inside Centre Block. “He did a great job and, from what I know, shot the gunman and he is now deceased.”

O' Canada! Is this only the beginning or just a taste of what is yet to come to our beloved Nation? The Holy Bible warns:"...Woe unto the inhabitants of the earth...for the Devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows he has but a short time." (Revelation 12:12). This horrendous attack was the work of the Devil. Our Gracious Heavenly Father gave His Son Jesus Christ as His Pascal Lamb to die on the cross for the sins of the world. One day all unrepentant Sinners will be judged by the True God, Jesus Christ our Lord. Through Christ's vicarious death and glorious resurrection we are forgiven and liberated from the power of Sin and Satan and filled with His Holy Spirit. My prayer is that all Jihadists will fall on their faces before Almighty God and ask for His forgiveness and receive Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord! - Pastor Max Solbrekken


'Radicalized' Quebecer shot dead after running down 2 soldiers in suspected terrorist attack

SAINT-JEAN-SUR-RICHELIEU, Que. – A Quebecer shot dead by police after running down two Canadian soldiers told a 911 operator he was acting in the name of Allah, a police source tells QMI Agency.

The Prime Minister’s Office says the dead suspect, identified as Martin Couture-Rouleau, had become “radicalized.”

Two police sources told QMI Agency that the incident just after 11:30 a.m. was a possible terrorist attack against the unidentified soldiers, one of whom was in critical condition.

Police gunned down Couture-Rouleau, 25, in his hometown of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, 30 minutes south of Montreal on Monday morning.

He had led police on a chase after mowing down a uniformed and a plainclothes soldier in the parking lot of an auto-insurance outlet.

A source says the suspect called 911 during the chase to say that he carried out his acts in the name of Allah.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper said the attack left him “troubled” and his office says the dead suspect was “known to federal authorities, including the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team.
“Federal authorities have confirmed that there are clear indications that the individual had become radicalized,” the PMO said in a statement late Monday.
“As Canada’s national security agencies have said, Canadians should remain vigilant.”
The PMO said Harper was briefed by RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson, Chief of Defence Staff Gen. Tom Lawson and National Security Adviser Stephen Rigby.
Couture-Rouleau became known to the RCMP after a relative alerted police to the man’s terrorist leanings, a police source told QMI Agency.
A neighbor told QMI that Couture-Rouleau had grown out his beard and started wearing a turban after converting to Islam a year ago. It appears that the suspect posted jihadist propaganda to the Internet under the name Ahmad Rouleau.
A Facebook page under the name Ahmad Rouleau, created in May 2013, included a number of verses from the Qu'ran.
The suspect drove off after running down the soldiers. Cops gave chase and the suspect lost control and rolled his car, which came to rest on its roof at the bottom of a ditch.
The suspect allegedly crawled out a window with a long knife and an eyewitness said the man charged at a woman police officer.
“I heard them (police) shout several times, ‘Get out of the car, get out of the car and raise your hands,’” the woman said. “The man got out and charged towards the policewoman. Then that’s when we heard seven gunshots, then the man was on the ground.”
Another eyewitness said the suspect put his hands up at first, then “charged like a bull” towards the policewoman before seven or eight gunshots rang out.
A knife could be seen stuck in the grass near the flipped car. A curved, ornamental handle protruded into the air.
One witness said police put down a spike belt during the chase but she wasn’t sure whether the suspect crashed after running over it or trying to avoid it.
Speaking Monday afternoon in the House of Commons, Tory MP Randy Hoback asked about “unconfirmed reports of a possible terror attack against two members of the Canadian Armed Forces.
“Can the Prime Minister please update this House on this matter?”
Harper replied: “We are aware of these reports that are very troubling. Our thoughts and our prayers are with the victims and the families.
“We are following the situation very closely and will make available all of the resources of the federal government.” The soldiers were hit less than 3 km from the French-language Royal Military College Saint-Jean.

Max Solbrekken with Kaylie Ralph & her 
mother Glenda Ralph, Sept 14, 2014
God Intervened. Kaylie was
 Healed by a Miracle from Jesus!
       Taken from the book, Oil Of A Different Kind - the FCC Story by Burton K. Janes.

      Glenda Ralph has been part of Family Christian Centre since she was in
Junior High School. That’s where she met her husband, Milton. Their first daughter, Kaylie, was born May 14, 1994, when Glenda was 19. “She was born healthy,” the proud Mom says, that is, until they “realized she had a really bad growth in the corner of her eye.”
      They were told it was a tear duct cyst. “It’s probably normal,” a pediatrician said, and it might go away within the first few weeks.”
        However, it didn’t.
     “It came to the point,” Glenda recalls, “where her eye was starting to close a bit. We had to push on the cyst to release whatever was in there. It would come through her nose and mouth. It was really awful.”
      Kailie was taken to numerous doctors and, eventually, was sent to a spe cialist in Edmonton, who bound her tightly and cleaned her eye by applying a lot more pressure than her mother had done.
      “Take her home,” the Ralphs were told, “and see how everything goes.” If Kailie’s eye did not clear up, the next step would be surgery. “We may have to put a hole down through her skull to have drainage from her eye.”
       All the way home, Glenda prayed, Please let that do the job.” Within mere weeks, Kailie’s worsened and, Glenda adds, “was actually starting to smell.” The baby was fussing, wanting to be in her mother’s arms all the time.
      Glenda’s doctor told her she would have to take Kailie back to the specialist to determine whether or not to proceed with surgery. Naturally upset, Glena and Milton fervently prayed.
       That fall, Evangelist Max Solbrekken came to Fort McMurray. Glenda attended, holding six-month-old Kailie in her arms and praying, “Oh, God, just do something in her life.” Glenda says she, was at my wits end. Kailie was so miserable and the lump on her eye was causing her so much grief.”
       Glenda’s father, Fred Landon, took his granddaughter out of his daughter’s arms and carried her to the altar. Glenda says Kailie looked up at Sol-brekken as if to say, “He’s gonna heal me.”
       The Evangelist took Kailie in his arms and prayed for her healing. By the time Fred had turned around to walk back to his seat, you could actually see the lump disappearing!
       The next morning the lump was completely gone. Lying on a blanket on the floor, Kailie didn’t make a sound. She was so content, she didn’t even care if she ate that day.
       The lump never returned, because Kailie was completely healed. Mean-while, there is still a scar on her eye as a reminder of God’s healing touch. “It’s amazing!” Glenda exclaims. ”It was remarkable because it was so fast.”
