                         WHY I BELIEVE IN 
            DIVINE HEALING
              By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

      Divine healing emanates from Almighty God, because God is Life! He is the sole creator of the world and giver of life.  Besides Him, there is no one capable of creating or granting anything.  And without Him, there is no life whatsoever. It is only natural for God to heal, because He is the fountainhead of health and life!  
    Divine healing emanates and flows from Him because He exudes love, peace, health and Eternal Life! Like the warm rays emitted by the sun fall on those exposed to its radiance, so it is with those who draw near to God! They become automatic recipients of His grace, mercy, love, peace, forgiveness and health!  Our Heavenly Father daily showers His children with loving kindness and tender mercies (Ps. 103:1-6).
     Because God is Love and perfect love casts out fear, there is perfect Peace and Healing in God. (1 John 4: 18). And since fear brings torment and disunity between God and man and disharmony among men, God's love restores the harmony within the entire human being; spirit, soul and body!
     As the healing process changes the recipient's attitude toward his Maker, the spin-off effect touches those around him, bringing harmony out of discord. Because JESUS   IS OUR PEACE, we walk in healing and health.  When the fear, torment, unrest and uncertainty is gone, the healing process starts functioning in the believer's life.
   As we believe God's Word and appropriate His promises for ourselves, we recognize His power actively operating, bringing healing to ourselves and others!
     St. Paul stated, "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened: that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.
     "And what is the exceeding greatness of His Power  to us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power, which He wrought in Christ, when He Raised Him from the dead and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places;
     “Far above all principality and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named not only in this world, but also in that which is to come". (Eph. 1:17-21)
     Then He tells us how we may have these miracles...BY ALLOWING HIS POWER to operate in us! "Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the Power according to the Power that worketh in us”. (Eph. 3:20)
     The key to receiving God's power, is to invite the Blessed Holy Spirit into our lives to work in us mightily, according to His own will. Praise the Lord! And since the Joy of the Lord is our strength, Divine Healing continues to flow as we serve Him with gladness
                GOD IS AGAINST SICKNESS!
     God is against sickness because God is good and sickness is the exact opposite of that which is good.  It is an evil, destructive force which tears down God's perfect work! Sickness is a blight and a scourge on the human race and a direct result of Adam's transgression and disobedience to Almighty God!
     Sickness and disease is incipient death, which is a slow form of demise; or death on the installment plan.  For with sin came fear, torment, sickness, disease and death!
     When Jesus walked upon the earth, He took a stand against six things: sin, sickness, fear, demons, poverty and death! He preached the gospel to the poor, so they could have their needs met for body, soul, mind and spirit!  He forgave the sinner, healed the sick, dispelled fear, cast out demons, fed the hungry and raised the dead!
     In the Nazareth synagogue, He openly challenged the powers of darkness by publicly reading the words of Prophet Isaiah, concerning Himself.
     "The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because he hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.  To preach the acceptable year of the Lord." (Luke 4:18-19)
   Then He went out to the poor, sinful, sick, and the needy and liberated them by the Almighty Power of the Holy Spirit! 
    "And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people". (Matt. 9:35-36)
     When God created the heavens and the earth and everything that was created, He put His stamp of approval on His handiwork by declaring it all "good"!
     Adam was created in the very image and likeness of God, and He is not sick!  In Him, there is no blemish, frailty, weakness, disease or death!  He is ageless, timeless, unchanging and the very epitome of perfection in every area of His triune being - Father, Son and Holy Spirit!
     In Him is perfect soundness, perfect goodness, perfect purity, perfect love, perfect peace, perfect righteousness and perfect health!
     Adam was made by the hand of God, out of the dust which He had previously spoken into existence - out of nothing.
     OUT OF NOTHING - BERESHITH BARA - EX NIHILO!  God created the worlds out of nothing.  He made the atoms - the building blocks of the universe, out of nothing.
     And He still specializes in doing the impossible!  Hallelujah!
     He is also the world's only healer!  And since He is the healer, it isn't difficult for Him to HEAL us all. Our Creator God made us in the first place, so it is not hard for Him to heal us and make us well!
     The Bible states, "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him: male and female created he them". (Gen. 1:26-27). "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life: and man became a living soul". (Gen. 2:7)
     A study of the original Hebrew texts teaches us how important we really are to Almighty God.
     The word man is 'adahm' which literally means "the blood of God".  The word image is 'damoot' and denotes "an exact duplication in kind".
     The Hebrew word for dust is 'afar' which means "minute particles" and the word ground is taken from the Hebrew 'adahmah' which has the literal meaning "the totality of all that God is"
    What does this mean and how does it affect me? And why should I care about the literal meaning of these Hebrew texts?
    That may be your attitude now, but after you have read what I have to share next, you will rejoice with all true believers in Christ, for God's great plan for our lives!
     "And God said Let us (Elohim-triune God) make the blood of God (man) an exact duplication in kind (in our image) of ourselves."
     You see, God took of Himself to make man.  He took of His own life (the life is in the blood), that is why we are so precious to Him!
     He made us triune (spirit, soul and body) just like Himself.  He is Father, Son and Holy Spirit!  We were created "an exact duplication in kind" of God. He made man out of minute particles (dust) of the totality of all that God is (ground).
     Science has recently discovered that everything is made out of minute particles, exactly as the original Hebrew stated!
     There was nothing here in the begin­ning, so God took of Himself to make everything that now exists!  For God is all in all!  Without Him, there would be nothing and if He decided to take His hand off this world, we would cease to exist.
     That is why St. Paul stated, "For in him we live, and move, and have our being". (Acts 17:28)
     God took of Himself to make the earth, but He took of His own BLOOD (life) to make man!
     That is why God "will destroy them that destroy (corrupt) the earth". (Rev. 11:18)  And why He is angry with those who worship mere men!
     And that is why God will judge those who worship the earth, instead of worshipping Him and His Son Jesus Christ, who died for the sins of the world in order to purchase our redemption

     Those who do not turn from the occult New Age Movement and their deceptive teachings, will discover - possibly too late - that they have been deceived, and are in fact, worshipping Lucifer (Satan) who is the architect of GODDESS and Mother Earth-GAIA worship!
     There are those who say that the earth has a soul and we must worship the earth.  This is sacrilegious and blasphemous!
     St. Paul tells of the terrible judgment of God upon those who worship created beings or creatures rather than the Living God and His Son Jesus Christ. (Rom 1:18-26)
     Moses wrote, "And the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life (nephish); and man became a living soul". (Gen. 2:7)
     The word nephish means "spirit".  God breathed His own ETERNAL SPIRIT into Adam!  That is why St. Paul speaks of the "law of God in our members", referring to our conscience.
     And the Bible speaks of God placing "eternity in our hearts" (Eccl. 3:11), again alluding to our God given conscience!


     What was the real reason for sending His Son to die on the cross? St. Paul calls Jesus Christ, "the second Adam" and "the last Adam". "For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
   "And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit, that was not the first which is spiritual, but that which is natural,  and afterward that which is spiritual.
     "The first man is of the earth earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven." (1 Cor. 15:22,45,47) The first Adam (blood of God) disobeyed, betrayed His trust and sold out to God's enemy (Satan), plunging the entire human race into sin, death and destruction!
     That is why God sent His own Son as the second Adam (blood of God), to shed His pure and holy Blood through His vicarious death on the cursed tree, thereby meeting the righteous demands of Divine Justice in the courts of Heaven, paying the penalty for our sins. The sacrificial death of the Jewish Messiah destroyed Satan's power over mankind who would embrace the Gospel of Christ!

The precious blood of our Saviour has redeemed us from the Curse of the Law and the power of Satanic Bondage! It has freed us from the slavery of sin, fear, sickness, disease and death!

     St. Paul writes: "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 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. 2:14-15)
     "Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it." (Col. 2:14-15)
     "But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
     "Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Phil. 2:7-11)
     And St. John wrote, "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil." (1 John 3:8)


     After God had made Adam in His own image, He was very pleased.  The Bible states: "And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was VERY GOOD." (Gen. 1:31). Evidently, Adam was a perfect specimen.  God made him according to His own will; perfect in all respects.  And he was perfectly healthy; spiritually, mentally and physically!
     Adam had everything he could ask for.  A beautiful young wife, a good job with full fringe benefits, perfect health and no bills to pay! And perfect fellowship with his Creator and God, and a guarantee that if he kept some simple rules, he could stay in this idyllic place forever!
     Into this beautiful picture enters the world's greatest liar, deceiver and thief - Satan himself!  And after his subtle con job had beguiled Eve, the entire human race was enslaved and hell bound!
    Eve was the first to disobey God and her sin soon contaminated Adam.  He was a quick study and also transgressed against the Almighty.  Apparently he understood the gravity of the situation, but didn't want to lose his wife!
     Their act of disobedience, rebellion and high treason soon infected their son Cain who became the world's first murderer!  And since that infamous day in the Garden of Eden, the human race has been contaminated with Sin! And the results have been disastrous - bringing guilt, condemnation, fear, doubt, sickness, disease and death upon the entire human race!
     But the good news is that God foresaw it all, and had prepared "a way of escape" for fallen man. Through Jesus Christ, His Son, Almighty God made a way for mankind to be reconciled and restored to fellowship and communion with Himself. 
   "Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ dies for the ungodly.  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.  But God 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.  For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.  And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
     “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous." (Rom. 5:1, 6-12, 19)
                      IN DYING THOU SHALT DIE!
      "And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and keep it". God warned Adam, "Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat.  But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, Thou shalt not eat of it.” 
   The literal Hebrew says, "For in the day that thou eatest of it, in dying shalt thou die"!
     In other words, the process of death would immediately begin in their bodies and they would eventually die! From that day til this, death has reigned supreme over the human race.  Everyone eventually dies, and the process of death works from the day an infant is born until he finally expires!
     The Good News is that Jesus Christ – the Second Adam – overcame death, Hades and the Grave for us when He conqoured Satan by shedding His pure and perfect Blood for our total Freedom from the curse of sin and eternal death.
   We are saved from our sins through His vicarious death for us and justified or made righteous through His resurrection from the dead. 
    The Holy Bible states"But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on Him that raised up Jesus Christ from the dead, who was delivered  for our offences and raised again for our justification.” (Rom. 4: 24, 25). Amen.

Los Angeles County prosecutors say they have charged Democratic donor and LGBTQ activist Ed Buck with running a drug house and other crimes after a man overdosed on methamphetamine at Buck's apartment last week.

Los Angeles County prosecutors say they have charged Democratic donor and LGBTQ activist Ed Buck with running a drug house and other crimes after a man overdosed on methamphetamine at Buck's apartment last week. The man survived, but two other men have died from overdoses at Buck's apartment in the past two years.
Buck was arrested Tuesday night — after months in which activists and relatives of the men who died have called for criminal charges related to the suspicious circumstances around the deaths of 26-year-old Gemmel Moore in 2017 and 55-year-old Timothy Michael Dean in January.
Buck, who is 65, is now facing felony counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house.
If convicted, he could face a maximum sentence of five years and eight months in state prison, said Greg Risling, the assistant chief of media relations for the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.
The most recent overdose took place on Sept. 11. Prosecutors say Buck injected a 37-year-old man with methamphetamine at Buck's apartment on Laurel Avenue in West Hollywood. The man suffered an overdose but survived.

Prosecutors wrote in court papers obtained by the Times that Buck used his position of power to manipulate his victims into participating in his sexual fetishes.
“These fetishes include supplying and personally administering dangerously large doses of narcotics to his victims,” the prosecutors wrote, according to the Times.
Seymour Amster, Buck’s attorney, told Fox News that he would not comment on the arrest and said he is dealing with the issue. Amster has in the past defended his client and insisted that he did nothing wrong.
In July 2017, a young black man, Gemmel Moore, was found dead of a drug overdose in Buck’s apartment.
An autopsy report said Moore, 26, died of a methamphetamine overdose. He was found naked on a mattress in the living room, which was littered with drug paraphernalia.
Eighteen months later,  55-year-old Timothy Dean also suffered a methamphetamine overdose. Prosecutors didn’t file criminal charges, citing insufficient evidence. Activists, however, called for his arrest.
In the most recent incident, Buck allegedly brought the man to his home earlier this month and injected him with methamphetamine. About a week later, the man returned to Buck's home and was injected again and suffered an overdose, according to court documents obtained by KTLA.
Buck is accused of thwarting the man's attempt to get help. The man fled the apartment and reportedly called for help from a nearby gas station. He survived but was treated at a hospital.
Prosecutors are reportedly seeking bail of $4 million. KABC-TV of Los Angeles reported that he faces up to five years and eight months in state prison if convicted.
The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Presbyterian Church in Big Trouble with God! Hear the Word of the Lord,"Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth sea when the waves thereof roar. The Lord of hosts is His name. If these ordinances depart from before Me, saith the Lord, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before for ever." (Jeremiah 31: 35, 36, 37). How sad to see a great church fighting against Almighty God. Stop! Before you end up like the Nazis. Look what happened to Hitler and Stalin and Osama bin Laden.- Dr. Max Solbrekken, D.D.


Presbyterian Church Goes Full Nazi With New Boycott

At the Presbyterian Church's 223rd General Assembly in June 2018, commissioners passed an overture calling on Real Estate Maximums (REMAX), an American international real estate company, to end the sale and rental of homes and apartments in the all of Judea and Samaria.

Presbyterian Council Letter: Pure Racism

This initiative was finally acted upon when Rev. Dr. J. Herbert Nelson, II, Stated Clerk of the Office of the General Assembly of the PC(USA), sent a letter to RE/MAX asking that the company stop operating in Judea, Samaria, and sections of eastern Jerusalem. The letter cited "reputational risks" the company would face should they continue to operate in these areas. 
The Jerusalemite Initiative, a nonprofit organization to empower Arabic speaking Israeli Jerusalemites Christians, wrote a letter Rev. Nelson, protesting the move, describing it as "a display of complete ignorance."

"I'm writing to you as an Arabic-speaking Israeli Christian from the Greek Orthodox Church. I was born and raised in the Christian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem and studied at Christian schools in Beit Jala and Bethlehem," Elias Zarina, the Christian Arab co-founder of the Jerusalemite Initiative, wrote. "As a non-Jewish Israeli, I can assure you that any call to boycott any company working in Israel affects and harms also Christians, Muslims and other minorities who live in Israel and are part of the economy, labor market and Israeli society.

Moreover, many Palestinians prefer to work in Israelis companies in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem due to the fact that wages are more than three times the average salary under the Palestinian Authority. Working in Israeli companies also provides all the social benefits which you can't find under the Palestinian Authority. All of this is exactly the same as with any Israeli-Jew,
there is no discrimination.

"East Jerusalem", "settlements", and "West Bank" are political terms. The right biblical, historical term is simply Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria where the Jewish community and neighborhoods existed in ancient Jewish biblical sites. It is quite embarrassing for me to write to a Reverend and explain him simple biblical facts. 

One can not colonize a land he belongs too, a land where his roots are in, where his forefathers lived. Similarly to other Christians (of different denominations) born in the Holy Land, we are the descendants of indigenous Jews and Aramean tribes who lived in the area. We are the descendants of the first followers of Jesus and the first Christians who spread Christianity to the world. We are here to keep the cradle of Christianity.

We are strengthening the ties with our Jewish brothers and with the State of Israel who provided us with security, freedom of religion, worship and speech and equal democratic rights, all of which are possible because of Israel's existence as a Jewish state! Your step is anti-Christian and contradicts efforts that lead to coexistence, interfaith understanding, and good relationships. Your actions are harming all of us in Israel: Christians, Jews, Druze, Arabs, Muslims and others. Stop your ignorance and remove your hands from the Holy Land - Israel.

Amit Barak, the co-founder of the Jerusalemite Initiative, notes that this initiative from the Presbyterian Church is blatantly racist and serves no political purpose or benefit for Palestinians.

"Palestinians would not be using Remax to sell or rent property to Jews," Barak noted, citing a Palestinian Authority law that punishes such sales with torture and death. "This initiative calls for Remax to stop facilitating sales or rentals between two Jewish parties. The Presbyterian Church objects to Jews doing business even if it does not involve Palestinians or non-Jews."

Ironically, the Presbyterian Council's resolution last year also called for "support for all efforts to bring Palestinians and Israelis together peacefully" and for Israel to "stop discriminatory practices," things their initiative diametrically opposes. 

"This would also prevent Christians from buying or selling properties," Barak noted. "In some respects, the Presbyterian Church is not discriminating. They are preventing Jewish property owners from selling or renting to Palestinians. And this is certainly causing distress to the employees of Remax, whether they are Jewish, Christian, or Muslim. In their rush to be anti-Israel, the Presbyterian Church does not discriminate in who suffers from their actions."

BDS focuses on boycotting businesses in Judea, Samaria, eastern Jerusalem, and the Golan. As Barak correctly noted, the Presbyterian initiative goes beyond that, targeting businesses that deal with Jewish businesses in Israel and even working to prevent Jews from doing business with each other. In this respect, the Presbyterian initiative is similar to the Nuremberg Laws of Germany of 1933 which boycotted all Jewish-owned businesses. 

"The Presbyterian Church claims that their support of BDS is intended to bring Jews and Palestinians together, to bring a peaceful solution," Barak said. "But their actions clearly do not do so. They are working to prevent co-existence before it can even begin. They achieve this at the expense of Palestinian suffering."

Zarina objected to the Presbyterian initiative on religious grounds.

"This contradicts the Christian value of being kind to other men," Zarina told Breaking Israel News. "BDS is not a Christian value and certainly not something the Arab Christians want. BDS comes from outsiders, people who don't understand how it affects the actual people. Canceling out a man's trade is the worst thing you can do. Many of the Arabs work in construction and related industries. Coexistence comes from the ground up, from people working together and living together."

"This is even truer concerning BDS which targets Jews in Israel," Zarina said. "Christianity is based on Judaism and began in Israel."

"I object to any form of racism and this is racism, plain and simple," Zarina said. "Israel is the only country in the region that I can work and raise my family as a Christian."

Worse Than BDS

The Presbyterian commitment to BDS goes beyond simply boycotting companies from all areas of Israel (including large corporations within the "green line" like Elbit and Ahava). The Presbyterian Church also boycotts multinational companies that sell to Israel. In 2014, the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church USA voted in favor of divesting from Caterpillar, Motorola, and Hewlett-Packard.

The anti-Israel movement within the Presbyterian Church is led by its Israel Palestine Mission Network (IPMN). It should be noted that NGO Monitor, a watchdog site for non-governmental organizations, uncovered overtly anti-semitic posts on IPMN social media, calling its Facebook page "a hate site operating under the protective wings of the Presbyterian Church." 

"None of the antisemitic postings were repudiated by the IPMN leadership or other members of this Facebook group," wrote Yitzhak Santis, NGO Monitor's Chief Programs Officer. "Several Presbyterian Church senior staff members are also members of this group, and they remained silent."

The Presbyterian Church has been accused of institutional anti-Semitism in the past. In 2014, they published "Zionism Unsettled: A Congregational Study Guide." The Anti-Defamation League released a statement saying the book "may be the most anti-Semitic document to come out of a mainline American church in recent memory."

Is this a picture of the dangerous future of warfare that could be used almost undetected in various parts of the world at a minimum cost? I believe this is a harbinger of things to come! How we need an act of God in Revival Fire to be ignited in the Church that Jesus purchased with His own blood! - Pastor Max Solbrekken. D.D.

Meet Donna and me at the House of Prayer Gospel Church on Hiway 623 south of New Sarepta, AB. Sundays at 10:30 am - Pastor Max Solbrekken

Cleansing Wave Gospel Church
Experiencing an Awakening!
                Dr. Max & Donna Solbrekken with Rev. Hjordis  Simonsen, 1985. 
                   Everyone welcome at the House of God: Service Sun. 10:45 
               Brad Edwards,  Max Solbrekken and Dave Sollid stand in
                   front of the beautifully restored Full Gospel Mission at  
                           the Historical Site in Sprague, Manitoba.

     Last week-end we enjoyed the blessing of God in Sprague, MB. For many years, Donna and I have been inextricably linked with the Cleansing Wave Gospel Church in that beautiful town on Highway 12. My first time there was in 1965, the day before our large tent crusade in Steinbach in which Sister Simensen was also involved. 
     On another occasion, my brother Fred and Marion who were living in Winnipeg,  brought me to the little Full Gospel Mission, five miles out of town. As I finished preaching, both Fred and Marion knelt at the old fashioned altar and asked for Christ's forgiveness. As I laid my hands on Marion, she fell over and was filled with the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues.
                               BEAUTIFUL SANCTUARY IN SPRAGUE!
  The Full Gospel Mission congregation then built a beautiful Sanctuary on Main Street in the town of Sprague. Great revivals have been the hallmark of that wonderful church. The old sanctuary has recently been moved into Sprague's Heritage site and expertly restored, and is a testimony to the labours of Rev. Gudro and Hjordis Simonsen, who came from Norway as missionaries in the 1930s. After Gudro passed away, the torch was passed to Rev. Hjordis who was much younger, and together with a strong congregation they continued to grow and thrive. 
      Sister Simonsen would often bring their young people to sing in our crusades in Winnipeg. One of those young men was Robert Taves who was mentored by Rev. Hjordis Simonsen and trained by extension, through the Canadian Bible Academy in Edmonton. He preached the Word of God faithfully during his time as pastor of that Assembly. In 2002, after his departure to Alberta, the Church board voted unanimously to officially turn the church and the responsibility of it to the Solbrekken Evangelistic Association of Canada. 
   We were led to change the name of the church to CLEANSING WAVE GOSPEL CHURCH referring to the blood of Christ as a cleansing wave to save, deliver and heal lost humanity,
     A number of Ministers have helped fill the pulpit since then, including Magnar Bremnes who served as an assistant pastor to Rev. Simonsen for two years. Rev. George Goertsen, who had received a miracle in his arm in our 1965 Winnipeg Crusade,  ministered effectively in Sprague for a while.
    Then my son, Pastor Ken Solbrekken and I, installed Herrman Funk as pastor of  Cleansing Wave Gospel Church and he has laboured as a soldier of the Cross, until recently. We thank all who have so graciously given their time to the Lord at this House of God!
                               PASTOR GLORY LEE LEADS THE FLOCK!
     By God's grace, Glory Lee has been chosen to lead the congregation. On September 6, 7 & 8,  I had the privilege of preaching God's Word and ministering to the people. I was joined by the anointed Gospel musical team of DANNY VOGT of Steinbach and JOHN KROGMAN of London, ON. On  September 8, I had the honour of installing, together with two of our Directors, Brad Edwards and Dave Sollid, Glory Lee as pastor of Cleansing Wave Gospel Church, Sprague, MB.
     With a strong Church Board and all our prayers behind her, we are sure that Rev. Glory Lee will fulfill the call God has placed on her heart for Sprague and area!  After being in the great presence of God last week-end, I heard Him say, "Revival is here. The church is coming back to the Cross and the blessed Holy Spirit. He desires to make Jesus Christ's power available to every believer!" Amen.

 Your servants for Jesus' sake,
