  By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
      “When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, It is finished: and He bowed His head, and gave up the ghost.” (John 19: 30)
      Jesus shouted VICTORY from the Cross! He was speaking in Greek. The word tetelestai comes from the Greek verb teleo, which has three essential meanings: 'To finish something, to bring something to an end; to fulfill something; to pay that which is owed'.
      He had FINISHED His work of Redemption. The fountain was now open for sin and uncleanness! Christ's cleansing and healing blood was available for lost, sick, suffering and perishing souls. He had completed His Mission of Mercy and would return to His Father, and pour out the Gift of the Holy Spirit upon His followers!
      The Bible states: “But Christ being come an High Priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; neither by the blood of bulls and goats, but by His own BLOOD He entered in once into the Holy Place, having obtained Eternal Redemption, for us.” (Heb. 9: 11, 12)
                                                THE GREAT DAY OF ATONEMENT!
      Once a year on the Great Day of Atonement, only the High Priest could enter the Holy of Holies in the Temple to make an atonement for Israel's sins, by sprinkling the blood of the sacrificial goat on the Mercy Seat.
     Only the High Priest was allowed into the Holy of Holies where GOD the Supreme Judge dealt with the sins of the nation of Israel. Sin had to be paid for to satisfy the Laws of Divine Justice in the Courts of Heaven.
       The law said; “The soul that sinneth, it shall surely die,” (Ezek.), but another law stated: “It is the Blood that maketh atonement for the soul.” (Lev.17: 11). A sinless Substitute could shoulder the blame and die for the sinner. Innocent animals, who had no eternal souls and no knowledge of sin could take the place of the offender.
     And on the Great Day of Atonement, all of Israel would gather outside the Temple, waiting to hear if God had forgiven their sins for another year. The High Priest had to follow a very strict protocol in fulfilling his personal life, ministry and duties before and during his ministration.
       Bells were attached to his robe so the waiting Israelites could hear that he were still alive. If the High Priest failed to execute his duty perfectly, he would immediately die, therefore he wore a rope around his left ankle, so he could be retrieved from that holy place if necessary.
     There was NO SEAT in the Holy of Holies and the High Priest stood continually until he had finished his course of duty. He spoke to no-one until his work was finished. He then, changed his attire and went home.
      As our Heavenly High Priest, Jesus carried His Own Blood into the Holy of Holies in Heaven! You will notice that on the third day after His crucifixion, He appeared unto Mary, saying: “Touch Me not, for I am not yet ascended to My Father: but go to My brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto My Father, and your Father; and to My God, and your God.” (John 20: 17)
     Shortly thereafter, He appeared unto the disciples: “Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst…” (John 20: 19, 20)
                                                  JESUS PROMISES PARADISE!
     In His extreme agony on the 'cursed tree' Jesus prayed for those who had crucified Him: “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do...” (Luke 23: 34). As the rulers with the people and the soldiers derided and mocked Him, one of the malefactors prayed: “Lord remember me when Thou comest into Thy Kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily, I say unto thee, TODAY shalt thou be with Me in Paradise.” (Luke 23: 42, 43)
     The Bible says: “By the which will we are Sanctified through the offering of the body of the Lord Jesus once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sin:
     “But this Man after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, SAT DOWN on the right hand of God... For by one sacrifice he had perfected forever them that that are sanctified.” (Heb.10: 10-14)
     There is a FALSE teaching that says that Jesus was tormented in Hell for three days to pay for our sins.  The truth is that He went directly to Paradise, called Abraham’s Bosom. (Luke 16: 19-31).
    That One Sacrifice was the perfect, pure and sanctified body of our Lord Jesus Christ!
       “For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh; How much more shall the blood of Christ, Who through the Eternal Spirit, offered Himself without spot to God, PURGE your conscience from dead works to serve the Living God?
     “For Christ hath not entered into the Holy Places made with hands, which are the figures of the True; but into Heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us...
     “But NOW once in the end of the world hath He appeared to put away SIN, by the sacrifice of Himself.” (Heb.9: 13, 14, 24, 26)
    Jesus Christ stripped the devil of all his usurped power and influence over a rebellious race whom he had deceived by his twisted, outright lies and false promises!
     JESUS of Nazareth not only destroyed his power but also effectively DESTROYED SATAN himself: “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through DEATH He might DESTROY him (Satan) that had the power of death that is, the DEVIL: And DELIVER them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.” (Heb.2:14)
      While praying during His water baptism, Jesus of Nazareth was filled with the Holy Spirit. The Bible states:  “The Heaven was opened. And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from Heaven, which said, Thou art My beloved Son; in Thy I am well pleased.”
      At the strategic moment of the Holy Spirit entering Jesus of Nazareth, His FATHER audibly and forcefully identifies with His incarnated (God in human flesh) SON, stating that the Lord Jesus is His Son with Whom He was well pleased!
     Immediately after His baptism, Jesus of Nazareth was driven by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. During His forty day fast, our Saviour was continually tempted by the Evil One but was victorious each time.
      Jesus of Nazareth filled with the Holy Spirit, commanded: “Get thee hence, Satan, for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God and Him only shalt Thou serve.”   (Matt.4: 11). The devil had to obey the Son of God and angels came and ministered unto Him.
    After His great victory over the devil, Jesus returned in the power of the Holy Spirit and great miracles, signs and wonders occurred everywhere He went!
      “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, and HEALING all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. And His fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto Him all SICK PEOPLE that were taken with diverse diseases and torments and those which were possessed with devils, and those that were lunatic and those which had the palsy; and He healed them.” (Matt.4: 23, 24)
                                          JESUS FULFILLED THE SCRIPTURES!
     There are 332 Old Testament Scriptures that deal with the coming Jewish Messiah. Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled them all. Included in the 332 Old Testament prophecies about the Messiah, there are 61 major prophecies. Dr. Peter Stoner states: According to the Scientific Law of Probabilities, for anyone but Jesus to have fulfilled only 8 of the major prophecies, he would have only 1 chance out of 10 to the 17th power.
     For us to begin to understand that humungous number, Dr. Stoner gave this explanation: Cover the entire State of Texas two feet deep, with American silver dollars. Mark one silver dollar with an X. Stir it into the mix. Blindfold a man, give him a cane and send him out to search for that marked coin. He can take as long as he wants, walk as far as he likes, dig as much as he likes. The first coin he chooses, must have the mark on it!
                                           JESUS HAS PAID FOR OUR SAVATION!
     An old song says: “I owed a Debt I could not pay; He paid a Debt He did not owe, When Jesus died in my place and took my all sins away.”
      The Bible says: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by His GRACE through the Redemption that is in Christ Jesus;
      “Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation (satisfaction, covering, expiation) through faith in His Blood, to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins, that are passed, through the forbearance of God.” (Rom. 3: 23-26)
     “Therefore being justified by FAITH we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By Whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, that rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
     “And HOPE maketh not ashamed; because the LOVE of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
     “But commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.” (Rom.5:1-9)
     “For the wages of SIN is death but the gift of God is Eternal Life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Rom.6:23)
                                                    I AM BOUGHT WITH A PRICE!
      St. Paul declared: “What, know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own.
      “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (1 Cor.6:19, 20); “Ye are BOUGHT with a price; be not ye servants of men.” (1 Cor.7: 23)
     "For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God, our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come into the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave Himself a RANSOM for all, to be testified in due time.” (1 Tim.2: 3-6)
      Jesus Christ GAVE Himself to redeem us all from Sin, Sickness, Hell and Satan’s power. He purchased my soul with the blood of His cross! 
      “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have Everlasting Life.” Amen.
       JESUS of Nazareth shouted Victory from the Cross, we should Victory through the Cross!

House of Prayer Gospel Church 
on Highway 623, east of #21
south of New Sarepta, AB
By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
    Four years ago this beautiful Moravian Church that was built in 1918 by Godfearing
immigrant followers of John Hus and Count Nicolas von Zinzendorf, was in danger of being destroyed. Farmers wanted the land, the County of Leduc wanted it. We were informed that the person who had bought the land from the Moravians owed the Government more than $100,0000 in back taxes but they would compassinately forgive the debt if he woud give the church to another Religious Organization. That is when we were contacted about rescueing it.
     We totally renovated it, hauling away tons of garbage, bringing in natural gas, water storage tank etc. at a cost of more than $250,000. Each summer we put up the BIG Gospel Tent for a Camp Meeting.  We have three acres of land with plenty roon for trailors, campers and tents for Camp Meeting 2016.
       Each Sunday at 11:00 we enjoy the presence of GOD in Old-Time Revival fashion with freedom to worship and praise God without fear or favour of man or devil. And many have been the miracles our Lord Jesus has given us and continues to do so as we press ahead for His honour and glory! Amen.

                            by Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
      There is something mysterious about God reaching out to confront, apprehend and subdue His unstable runaway creation, order to establish or restore friendship, communication and fellowship!
     A little like the white man’s attempts at making friendly contact with the early Indians of North America.

     In that case, however, there was a great deal of mistrust on both sides and often the greedy white traders exploited the less street-wise natives. And superstitious, fearful savages sometimes wreaked havoc and death upon the new settlers.

    Not so, with God.  He does not want to exploit us and He has no fears of getting hurt in the relationship, even though He knows our poor track record!
                                 GOD DESIRES OUR FRIENDSHIP!
The way mankind treated His Son, Jesus Christ almost 2000 years ago should have soured Him in attempting to make contact with us, but it certainly hasn’t dulled His desire for our fellowship!

     How remarkable that He would still want us, and even more extraordinary that He planned it all...the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ together with His ascension and the outpouring of the Holy Ghost!

       Why?  He desired to establish contact, and save us from our own destruction, and Satan’s snare. It’s staggering when you consider the risk God took to redeem fallen man.

 He left Himself wide – open! The Son of God had to be incarnated as a man in order to be tempted by the devil, crucified by sinners and finally rise again by the power of the Holy Spirit!

     He Died for our SINS and was Raised from the Dead for our Justification – What a VICTORY for both God and Man!

     In order to redeem us from Satan’s cruel hand, Christ had to be subjected to the total weight of sin and sickness that He bore for us all on Golgotha!

     The Old Testament unveils the mechanics of that total salvation purchased for us by the sacrificial, substitutionary death of God’s paschal Lamb.

   “He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and by His stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)

    St. Paul calls the born again experience “a mystery” that had been hid from generations and age, but was revealed to him by the Holy Ghost. (Col. 1:26; Gal. 2:20)

      Jesus Christ living in the believer is the “New Birth”! God living in a human vessel, making out of Jews and Gentiles a new man; not Jew or Gentile, but “a spiritual man” with God on the inside!
                                         PROFESSING THEMSELVES TO 
                                       BE WISE, THEY BECAME FOOLS!
 It seems incredulous that modern man is spending millions of dollars trying to make contact with aliens in outer space when the God of the universe and His Son, Jesus Christ - Who visited this planet nearly 2000 years ago - is available to help us in every detail of our lives!

     And yet, so-called-intelligentsia, academia and intellectuals are wasting valuable time and money going to séances, tracking UFO’s, talking to weird clairvoyants who are themselves deceived and totally spaced out!

      But, they have no time to call upon the name of the Lord or investigate the mighty working of the Holy Spirit!

    Amid the scientific rubble, however, there is now arising an army of honest, intellectual giants who are proving the Bible true, by using strictly scientific methods and material that has been deliberately overlooked by dishonest evolutionists for years.

     There is nothing as rewarding as a relationship with the God of the universe and His Son Jesus Christ, Who is the fountainhead of all wisdom, knowledge and understanding!

    On the contrary, nothing is as boring, dull and meaningless as a life lived totally outside of God’s will, and in ignorance of His ability, power and presence!

   And to think that God included us in His itinerary, honoured guest and family members list, is really exciting and almost too much to comprehend! But He did and that suits me just fine!  I don’t deserve it, but I thank God for it anyway!  
                                                HOW IT ALL STARTED!
The Sacred Record states:  “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.  And God said, Let there be light:  and there was light.  And God saw the light...” (Gen. 1:1-4)

   I like the way God introduces Himself in the very first verse of the Bible.  No explanations or asides - very straightforward indeed!  IN THE BEGINNING GOD… PERIOD!
       He doesn’t need to excuse Himself for the intrusion or explain anything.  He was here a long time before we were, and we need to get smart and learn from Him rather than blindly look for our origins in Big Bang Explosions, 5000 degree temperatures, sea slime, swamp gases, or fish, reptile and ape stories!

    The noted scientist Herbert Spencer speaks of 5 factors as the most general forms into which the manifestation of the UNKNOWABLE are redivisable: 1) space, 2) time, 3)  matter, 4)  force, 5)  motion!

   It is certainly not coincidental that we have all these prerequisites of God (the unknowable) are conditions that the eminent scientist laid out, in Genesis 1:1-2:  “In the beginning (time) God created the heavens (space) and the earth (matter) ... and the Spirit of God (force) moved (motion).

    Charles Darwin half-heartedly rushed his manuscript to the publishers when he heard that his former student Alfred Wallace was planning to release a similar paper, and it caught on like wild fire. That is how the ‘Origin of the Species’ came about!

     Modern day evolutionists, however, ridicule Darwin, declaring they have found new proofs of how man’s existence came about.

     Each new crop of theorists try to outdo their predecessors with more wild and weird schemes to keep government as well as private money flowing into their coffers...While they strut their stuff!

     Big shots operating on someone else’s funds, playing manipulator of gods, creators with a small ‘c’, in their posh offices and with unlimited expense accounts. They are educated fools who believe that everything and everybody came into being by mere chance; from nothing!

       Their principle formula is:  'Nothing multiplied by nothing, subtracted from nothing, divided by nothing and added to nothing produced a miracle - EVERYTHING'!

      But wow, stop a minute... I thought evolutionists were so intellectual they didn’t believe in miracles! They sure do!  They believe in the RELIGION OF ATHEISM, the GOD OF CHANCE and the TEMPLE OF STUPIDITY!

    They CERTAINLY believe in miracles; the miracle of government funded laboratories, excavation tools, airline tickets, free TV time, extensive newspaper coverage and big salaries!
                                                WHAT A MIRACLE!
And this is the kind of garbage we, the taxpayers are footing the bill for, and paying School teachers to re-educate our children with.

     In my opinion, one of the greatest wastes of our generation is the time and money spent trying to disprove the only sensible philosophy of man and life.

     THAT OF SPECIAL DIVINE CREATION! That God made man in His own image, and gave him “authority and dominion over the fish of the sea, the fowl of the air and every creeping thing upon the earth”. (Gen. 1:26)

     But, through rebellion and disobedience to God’s laws, man fell from his exalted position and became a slave to an evil taskmaster, the ringleader of all rebels, the fallen archangel, Lucifer!

     Only through Jesus Christ, the Righteous Son of God, can man be restored to the position of wisdom, understanding and authority again.

      The Bible clearly states why some people rebel against God.  “Satan the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, Who is the image of God, should shine unto them”. (2 Cor. 4:4)
      No wonder, atheists and evolutionists in their deception, think of themselves as superior intellectually while they grovel among the bones, worms and dust for some small gratifying evidence of their twisted, warped and ignorant theories, rather than look up to Heaven and acknowledge Almighty God as Creator, Saviour and King!

     When asked if he believed in life on other planets the famous Jewish scientist Albert Einstein replied, “God does not play dice”! By that statement he was rejecting the “god of chance” for the ordered, structured, intelligent creator of the universe - God.

      Werner Von Braun, the brilliant German American who pioneered the NASA project emphatically declared: “The farther we probe into space the more I believe in God”.
                                                OUR FIRST PARENTS!
God walked and talked with Adam and Eve.  Their fellowship was rich, beautiful and perfect until sin made its entrance into the world in the form of rebellion and lawlessness. God had created Adam and Eve for His pleasure and purpose.  It was His desire to give them the very best.
     Mankind was God’s special creation, with an exalted position of authority, a superior intelligence and a spiritual aptitude to worship and communicate with the Eternal One!
    THE MESSAGE IS CRYSTAL CLEAR! GOD WANTS US! God wants us!  He desires to involve us in His plans, purposes and projects, both in this life and the one to come!
    How good to know that we are wanted, appreciated and necessary.  We are more than an accident!  We were meant to be.  God knew about us and planned for us before the world was created!
    We are more than animals, just to be used for convenience sake, and then die and go back to the dust.  We are eternal, not to be discarded like rubbish!!
     Man is a special being - made in God’s image - spirit, soul (mind) and body!  When expiration takes place, the body goes back to the dust, the mind is stilled and the eternal spirit of man returns to stand in God’s presence!
    Then eternity will begin for each one of us! May we all be ready for the great judgment day, by receiving Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour! TO BE CONTINUED!!!

Max Solbrekken with Garry Martin & Leonard Theriault, 2015
            Happy Reunion at Full Gospel Business Men's Miracle 
        Revival Crusade with Dr. Max Solbrekken in Yorkton! 
Last Friday's Full Gospel Business Men's Meeting featuring Pastor Max Solbrekken became a happy reunion for the veteran preacher and many of his old friends! Leon and Bonnie Jones, local business people did a great job in organizing the event as did Yorkton's FGBMI President Randy King in advertizing it so well.
     Garry Martin Healed of Heart 
Attack 8 Years Ago!
                                Testimony by Garry Martin, Yorkton, Sk.

About 8 years ago I was attending a Meeting of the Metis Eldership in Saskatoon. Suddenly, I was seized with  a severe pain in the Chest. I was planning to go directly to the Hospital but when we saw the Church where Pastor Max was preaching, we went directy to the service and asked for Prayer. 

Whe Pastor Max Solbrekken laid his hands on my head and prayed, the pain left immediately, and I went away perfectly well. Several years ago I went to see my doctor and he did a complete check up and told me that my health was good! 

Then he concluded by saying: The tests also show that you have had a heart attack and your heart is completely healed. 

I aswered, "I have never had a heart attack." My Doctor said the tests prove that you did have a heart attck, but that your heart has been healed. Then I remembered going to see Pastor Max Solbrekken when I was in such pain in my heart area, instead of to the hospital several years earlier. I am still well today! Praise God!

                                 Says Leonard Theriault, Yorkton, SK 
 Forty Five years ago I attended Pastor Max Solbrekken's meeting in Regina and gave my heart and life to Christ, and I have been serving our Lord Jesus  ever since. It was so good to meet Max Solbrekken again in Yorkton on October 16, 2015 and hear him preach once more! Thank you, Jesus for Your mercy and grace to me and thank You for Your servant, Max Solbrekken.

   Almighty God used His humble servants Max Solbrekken and Omar Cabrera to open the hearts of Argentina's Military Junta when major crusades were not allowed in that country.  
   Omar had been asked by the Military to leave Argentina because his name was found on a rebel hit list. He was working on some translations for Morris Cerullo in California. In 1977, Demos Shakerian's son, Richard, called and asked if we could host Omar and Marfa for some meetings in our church. 
   While in Edmonton, Omar approached me about having a crusade in Paraguay and we decided to conduct a crusade in Asuncion Paraguay. Months went by and every time Omar sought to put it together, nothing worked right. 
    When I returned from Ghana Africa we called Omar and I explained that it was incumbent upon us to hold a crusade in Latin America and that I believed we should have the crusade in Argentina. 
    He was adamently apposed to the idea and said; "I will NEVER ever go back to Argentina." 
    I said, "Omar, I believe that God is telling me that we should hold the Crusade in Argentina!" Suddenly, he answered: "OK, we'll try Cordova." Amazingly, when he applied to use the Rocco Football Field in Cordova, we received permission. Omar was delighted that everything was working perfectly in our favour!
       We started with 6,000 in attendance the first night. It seemed like everyone wanted to get saved and miracles were happening everywhere. Roman Catholic nuns and priests were tape recording my messages and were praising God with the rest of us. It grew quickly and many were born again and healed each evening! Several came out of wheel chairs made perfecly  well by our Lord Jesus Christ.
      A well-known Business lady who had owned a very popular kiosk for 32 years and sold newspapers, tobacco and chocolates, and who had used crutches for 14 years and a wheel chair for seven years was instantly healed in our crusade. 
    Tens of thousands resonded to the altar calls to receive Christ and staggering miracles happened in a nation - stirring Gospel Awakening from May 1 to May 10, 1978. Omar stated that on the final evening there were 48,000 in attendance!
    Omar Cabrera returned to that same venue two weeks later and drew 17,000 the first evening. The lady from the kiosk hung up her crutches and displayed her wheeel chair for all her customers to see. Her testimony caused 3,000 people to visit Omar's crusade.
      Within 18 months he had a congregation of 8,000, 150 preaching points with 450 preachers workingr with him. In 1980 and 1982 I returned for crusades in Sante Fe, Raphila and other points! Then a young man named Carlos Anancondia became a leading evangelist and together with others have won several million souls to God.
     On the fourth day of the Crusade, the Police Chief came back to town to sign our permit. He had left town fearful of the powerful Catholic Church.  I called for a meeting with the four Colonials who ruled the Cordova area. They agreed to talk to me. I preached for 20 minutes about God and the devil, about heaven and Hell and about the Cross and the BLOOD of JESUS. 
     They were visibly moved, and the Leading Colonial shouted, "What do you want from us? " I answered, "Stop persecuting the Evangelicals. Stop persecuting the Pentecostals. Stop persecuting Dr. Vacarro and Omar Cabrera!" He said,"OK, what else?"  
    I said, "Get down on your knees and give your hearts to Christ!" They were stunned. Omar let out a great belly laugh and I smiled. They relaxed. I said: "I would like to pray for you and your familes." He said,"Yes. Please do that." 
    ""I prayed a compassionate prayer and they thanked me and then shared how they had heard many good things about our crusade! The official persecution stopped immediately and the REvival swept across Argentina!" Hallelujah! That is how the Great Argentine Revival that is still sweeping Argentina started! All glory to God the Father through Jesus Christ our Lord, forever and ever. Amen.
