            ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE - PART 3

             By Pastor Max Solbrekkken, D.D.

Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” (Mark 9:23); “And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God, for with God all things are possible.” (Mark 10: 27)

The Anointing of the  Holy Spirit breaks the yoke! And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” (Is. 10: 27)

In this Scripture Isaiah conveys a prophetic truth concerning the coming of the Messiah and the liberation of His people from the powers of darkness, by the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

 The Bible states: “But unto the Son He saith...Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God hath anointed Thee with the oil of gladness above Thy fellows.” ( Heb.1: 8.9). The prophet Zechariah delivers the same message of the working of the Holy Spirit of God: ...Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the Lord of Hosts.” (Zech. 4; 6)

The YOKE of Satanic Bondage is removed from our neck and the burden off our shoulder by the BLOOD of JESUS and the power of the Holy Spirit. The YOKE of fear, torment, guilt, condemnation, pain, disease and unrest is broken by the anointing of God the Holy Spirit!

The Bible says: “Ye shall know the truth and the Truth shall make you Free.” (John 8:32). Jesus Christ Himself is the TRUTH and being within us, frees us from the power of sin, fear, torment, sickness and evil: “If the SON therefore shall make you Free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8: 36)

                              PROMISES OF GOD NEVER CHANGE!

God states: “And I will come near to you to judgment... For I am the Lord, I Change Not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed... Return unto Me and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of Hosts.” (Malachi 3:6)

Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, today and forever.” (1 Cor. 13:8); “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of Heaven, but My Father only.” (Matt. 24: 34-37)

JESUS stated: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” (John 14: 6); Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For everyone that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” (Matt. 7:7,8)

Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in Heaven: in Heaven and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in Heaven. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father which is in Heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Matt. 18: 18-20)

                                         ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

Jesus said unto him. If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. (Mat. 9: 23). And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.” (Mark 10:27);

And Jesus answered saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you; That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt his heart, but shall believe that those things that those which he saith shall come to pass, he shall have them.” (Mark 11:22-24)

Dr. Ole Hallesby, Evangelical Lutheran Church, Norway (Devotional Jan. 28): “Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” (Matthew 21: 21, 22)

Now and then, we make discoveries which almost take your breath away, namely, when we see what great powers are present in this realm of the invisible. This is especially true when these powers are put to our disposal, when God performs a mighty miracle simply because we ask Him to do so.” 

Dr. Hallesby made it plain that absolutely all of God's promises are TRUE, even though we cannot understand them. Since He created everything out of Nothing, and raised Jesus Christ from the dead, certainly He can move a mountain or two if He so desires!

The problem is that we are so infantile in our faith. The solution is in getting to know our Saviour more intimately through prayer, His Word and by the Holy Spirit. If we are able to believe with all our heart that He means what He says and trust Him with no reservation, we will see His almighty power operate in our lives in afar greater measure!

                                        HAVE THE FAITH OF GOD!

And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” (Matt. 21: 22). Faith in God can move mountains of doubt, unbelief, fear, sickness, disease and premature death. Jesus, however, was informing His disciples of what it means to be one with God and the awesome power of the infilling of the Holy Spirit. He was actually saying, “Have the faith of God!

Jesus promised, “But ye shall receive POWER, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you, and ye shall be WITNESSES unto Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” (Acts 1:8).

How can we be witnesses unto Him? How can we prove to the world that Jesus Christ is truly the Son of God? By proving through the healing of the sick and suffering and other great miracles in answer to our prayers in Jesus Name, we continue to prove His words are true! Praise the Lord!

We are healed by the Person of Jesus Christ. We are saved, forgiven, freed and liberated from Sin, Fear, Sickness and Disease by the Word of God Himself. Surely, we are witnesses for Christ to a sinful, sick and troubled world!

                                             IN THE BEGINNING!

The Holy Scriptures declare: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was Life and the Life was the Life of men. 

He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory as of the ONLY BEGOTTEN of the Father full of grace and truth.” (John 1: 1-4,10, 14)

The Word was before the beginning of all things. He created all things! The Holy Scriptures does not say: In the beginning was a word or many words, but the Word’. Jesus of Nazareth was the INCARNATE Word sent from God the Father to be the propitiation for our sins. 

 St. John writes: “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the Righteous: And He is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” (1 John 1: 1,2). 

The word propitiation means satisfaction, mercy seat, expiation. God the Father was satisfied with the sacrificial death of His own Son to atone for the sins of Adam and the entire world of sinning men, in meeting the Righteous Demands of Divine Justice in the Courts of Heaven! 

 The Holy Bible is the written Word of God and Jesus Himself is the Living Word of God! He gives us the assurance: “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for He (JESUS) hath said, I WILL NEVER LEAVE THEE, NOR FORSAKE THEE.” (Heb.13:5)

                                  GOD'S WORD CANNOT FAIL!

Here, Jesus used a double imperative. He actually said, I will never, no never leave thee. I will never, no never forsake thee.” St. Matthew records our Master: “...and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world (age).” (Matt. 28: 20) 

The term always is a measure of time and the word alway is a measure of distance. Jesus promised to go the distance with us, all the way until we meet Him face to face! 

An old Sunday school chorus says, 'With Jesus in the vessel, we can smile at the storm, smile at the storm, smile at the storm. With Jesus in the vessel, we can smile at the storm, as we go sailing Home.'

 And that is abundantly true. Whatever enemy we face, we will overcome. We have ultimate peace, assurance and victory through the BLOOD of the Everlasting Covenant, the Eternal Word of God, the Blessed Holy Spirit and the Matchless Name of Jesus Christ.

He, Who is the Liberator of lost humanity, the Emancipator of the human race, the Saviour of the world and the Great Physician, has already won the Battle for us!

 We are fully armed with the precious promises of God, the Sword of the Spirit, purged by the Blood of the Lamb and endued with the Power and presence of the Holy Spirit and hidden with Christ in God the Father Almighty, one true God, world without end!

The Bible says: "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint. Fear thou 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!

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their righteousness is of Me, saith the Lord.” (Is.54: 17)

                                GOD'S ANOINTING HEALS!

 The Holy Spirit's anointing destroys the YOKE. He equips us with the anointing of God that breaks the yoke of satanic power and bondage and frees us to live in victory to serve the Lord with gladness and fruitfulness! 

The Bible says: “But we have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.” (1 John 2:20). “Now He which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us with you is God.” (2 Cor. 1: 21). “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet (qualified) to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 

Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of His Son: In Whom we have redemption through His Blood, even the forgiveness of our sins. Who is the IMAGE of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by Him were all things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him and for Him: 

And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the Church: Who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things, He might have the pre-eminence. For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fullness dwell.

And having made peace through the blood of His Cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself; by Him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or in Heaven. And you, that were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath He reconciled in the Body of His flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in His sight.” (Col. 1: 12-22)

Jesus declared: And He said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning FALL from Heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10: 18, 19)

                               STANDING ON GOD’S WORD!

I stand on God's Word and the Promises of Jesus Christ! He said: “Come unto Me all ye who labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matt. 11:28-30)

 Satan's yoke is heavy and is hard to bear! The wicked devil takes his slave to eternal death. He promises an exciting time with no strings attached, but he is a Deceiver and a proficient and talented Liar. Satan enslaves those who follow his pernicious ways and ultimately leads them to destruction and Hell. 

 Christ's yoke is different. He carries the heavy load. His yoke frees us to live a life of righteousness, peace and joy. He shatters sinful habits, destroys sickness and disease and ultimately carries us to be with Him in His glory!

 He is the Heavy Lifter, that bore our sins and sicknesses to the Cross. He carried our pains, fears and sorrows to Golgotha when He made the supreme sacrifice for us all. He met the Demands of Divine Justice in payment for our eternal salvation, through His vicarious (substitutionary) death for us!

The Holy Bible states: “Surely He hath borne our sicknesses (heb. makob), and carried our  pains (heb. nasa): yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted. But 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. 

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid upon Him the iniquity of us all.” (Is. 53: 4-6)

 When Jesus cried: “It is finished”, He had purchased our salvation from sin, fear, sickness, disease and death. (John 19: 30). St. Paul declared: “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Rom. 5: 6, 7)

                                    THE HOLY SPIRIT RAISED JESUS!

 “But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead, shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.” (Rom. 8: 11)

The Holy Scriptures teach the doctrine of the Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit: "Therefore, we are buried with Him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life." (Rom. 6:4)

Jesus stated, ''Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up. But He spake of His body." (John 2: 17, 20)

The BIBLE teaches that, “God hath delivered us from the power of Darkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son: In Whom we have redemption through His Blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” (Col. 1: 13, 14). 

                                     CHURCH WAS BORN IN FIRE!  

As He had promised, Jesus sent the Blessed Holy Spirit upon His disciples on the Day of Pentecost and His Church was born in fire and great power:  

And when the Day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from Heaven as of a mighty rushing wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave utterance.” (Acts 2: 1-4)

Through His vicarious death for us all and His glorious resurrection from the dead, Jesus totally defeated Satan and the kingdom of Darkness. By His precious Blood, our Saviour has purchased all mankind for Himself and has given His church authority to take His Gospel to all who will believe on His name and repent of their sins.

Here is His great commission:Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; 

In My Name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.” (Mark 16: 15-18)

 The Church was born on the Day of Pentecost and continues in His Name to carry out the mandate given us by our Lord Jesus Christ. Here is the example set by Christ's early followers: And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the Word with SIGNS following. Amen.” (Mark 16: 20)

                                       FAITH IS THE EVIDENCE!

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the Evidence of things not seen." (Heb. 11:1). Faith is knowing that you have those things you have prayed for, even before the the answer has come. Augustine said: "Faith is to believe what we do not see, and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe."

We are saved by faith.(Eph. 2: 8,9). We are justfied by faith. (Gal.1:6). We live by faith. (Gal. 3:11; Rom. 1:17; Heb.10:38); We are baptized in the Holy Spirit through faith. (Gal. 3:5). We minister the Holy Spirit to others through faith. (Gal. 3:5); We minister Divine Healing by faith. (Gal. 3:5; We walk by Faith. (2 Cor. 5: 7)

God's Word states: "But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.'' (1 John 1:7)

JESUS said, ''Ask and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receivth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened unto him. If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall you Father which is in Heaven give good gifts to themk that ask Him? ''

''Verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in Heaven and whatsoever ye shall lose on earth shall loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father which is in Heaven.'' (Matt.18: 18-20)

''Believest thou not that I am in the Father and the Father in Me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of Myself. But the Father, but the Father that dwelleth in Me He doeth the works. Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me: or else believe Me for the very works' sake.

                                 IF YE SHALL ASK IN MY NAME!

''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: 10-14)

''Submit yourself therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will FLEE from you. Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift thee up.'' (James 4: 7-10).

The Bible states: "For by grace are ye saved through Faith; and that not of yourselves: it is a gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast." (Eph. 2:8,9); "For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end." (Heb.3:14):

"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, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God." (Rom.5: 1,2)

"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)

JOHN WESLEY stated: Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin, and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or laymen; such alone will shake the gates of hell and set up the kingdom of heaven on Earth.”

HUDSON TAYLOR spent 51 years as a missionary to China. It is said that the sun never rose over China without finding Hudson Taylor on his knees praying for that country! He said: "China is not to be won for Christ by quiet, ease-loving men and women … The stamp of men and women we need is such as will put Jesus, China, [and] souls first and foremost in everything and at every time—even life itself must be secondary."

Let us make a new resolve to reach Canada for Christ! Let is begin today to bring our loved ones, neighbours and other to the Saviour now, before it is too late! Amen.

             GOD'S MIRACLE STILL REMAINS!

 Yvonne at House of Prayer, Nov 15,  2020

                   Yvonne top centre holding steel corset, 1975

Yvonne Trigg Still Well

After 45 Years!

By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

O GIVE thanks unto the LORD for is good: for His endureth forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy…Oh that men would praise the Lord for His Goodness, and His wonderful works to the children of men.

He sent His Word and Healed them and Delivered them from their destructions. Oh, that men would praise the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men.” (Psalm 107: 1,8,31, 32)

St. Peter wrote: “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come unto repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9).

It is said that every time Simon Peter heard a rooster crow, he fell upon his knees in prayer, as he remembered the awful sins he had committed. Three times he declared that he did not know Jesus of Nazareth. Finally he said that if he wasn't telling the truth, may a curse be on him!

And where would any one of us be without the assurance from God’s Word that He freely forgives us? The Bible says: “Or despises thou the riches of His Goodness and Forbearance and Longsuffering. Not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?” (Rom. 2: 4).

CHRIST’S BLOOD SHED FOR US!

Herein lies the Key of Victory in Christ: God’s Goodness leads us to repentance! Can anyone charge God with being unfair? No one could speak such nonsense in the face of the great love, mercy and grace that He poured upon us through the Redemptive Work of His Son on the Cross at Golgotha!

Certainly, becoming a child of God through the vicarious death of Jesus Christ is the greatest miracle of all! Nothing is greater than being born again through our faith in the shed Blood of Jesus Christ! The Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead sealed Satan’s total defeat and our eternal destiny as children of God and partakers of Christ’s Kingdom for ever and ever!

The Bible says: “Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God through Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them. For such an High Priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for His own sins, and then for the people’s: for this He did Once, when He offered up Himself.” (Heb.7: 25-27)

Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered in once into the Holy Place, having obtained Eternal Redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the clean, 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.” (Heb. 9:12-14)

ENTER INTO THE HOLIEST!

This is the Covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them: And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the Holiest by the Blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh.” (Heb. 10:16-20)

The Bible says: “Now the God of Peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the Blood of the Everlasting Covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.” (Heb. 13:20, 21)

For more than 50 years we have seen God’s miracles as we have prayed in Jesus’ precious Name for His healing hand to do miracles, according to His Holy Word. In 1964 we began publishing the ‘Cry of His Coming’ and we have kept copies of nearly everyone together with my messages on radio dating back to 1961.

THE MIRACLE IS STILL GOOD TODAY!

In the November 1985 Magazine, we carried the amazing testimony of Yvonne Trigg of Calgary, Alberta. It was a real delight to hear from her a few weeks ago saying that she was had been unable to contact us earlier and that the miracle God gave her through our ministry in 1975 in our Crusade in the Jubilee Auditorium in Calgary was still good!

Yvonne Trigg wrote: “My Spine was Curved like a Candy Cane and I had two Fused Vertebrae. It was about ten years ago (1975) I went to a meeting in the Jubilee Auditorium in Calgary. A pastor and his wife invited me to attend. I really didn’t know why I went. I sat in the foyer of the auditorium and Brother Solbrekken stopped at my seat and shook my hand.

He said, “Did you want to talk with me?” And I said, “Yes”, but I don’t know why I said that because I had not really planned to talk with him. After a short conversation he prayed with me and asked me to go into the auditorium and listen to his message. I remember him making the altar call. I don’t remember what his message was, but when he asked who would like to accept the Lord, I hesitated.

Pastor Max then asked, “Is there someone here who would like to walk with Jesus, but you don’t think you are ready?” And I thought, “It’s me because I’m dancing, drinking and doing things I was not supposed to do and I thought, I’ve got to get myself right first.”

But praise God that night he said, “Take the first step and stand.” I was weeping and I didn’t know why, but I know my heart was crying out to God. He then asked us to take the second step and come to the altar, so I made my way down and I was really weeping.

He said, “Kneel down.” And I knelt down and I was really weeping and I stayed kneeling for about ten or fifteen minutes. Then Pastor Solbrekken said, “Lift your hands up.” And everyone else was praising the Lord.

I didn’t know why I was crying but I knew that I had received Jesus! Brother Solbrekken laid his hands on me that night. I didn’t know anything about deliverance, but God knew that I needed deliverance. So Brother Solbrekken laid his hands on me and I could hear these voices – they did not want to come out and I thought, “God stop this man.” These voices, and my head was spinning and I knew it was demons coming out of me!

Praise the Lord, after that was through, Brother Solbrekken asked me to come on the platform and sit on a chair. He said that God was going to heal my back. I thought, “Oh well, if God is going to heal my back that is really good because I had been told just prior that I was handicapped with my back.

One of my legs had been pulled back because due to a terrible spinal problem and when Brother Solbrekken prayed my legs normalized, the terrible pain was gone and I was well! When I stood to my feet, I was a new woman! I jumped up and down a little bit and the next morning, my twins who were them about six years old, whom I was unable to carry were excited when I told them about the miracle.

I said to the children, “I’m healed!” They said, “Yippee”, and they ran to me and I carried them, and my back has never been sore again!

DOCTOR DECLARES MY SPINE HEALED!

I went to the doctor and asked, “Would you please take more x-rays?” He said, they didn’t have to because they already knew what was wrong. I said, “Take them one more time and I’ll never come back again.” He did and when I returned for the results, he told me that there was nothing wrong with my back. Yet, he had all the documents that recorded all that was wrong with my spine.

He had stated earlier that operating on my spine might damage it even more. And now he had new evidence that my spine was perfectly normal. And there has not been anything wrong with my spine ever since! Hallelujah!

The Lord did heal me that night and I was HEALED spiritually, physically and mentally. When Brother Solbrekken prayed for me, I was taking nerve pills and sleeping pills because I was going dancing three times a week. I was on my fourth and that was on Sunday afternoons

I had planned my Sunday afternoons for dancing and that’s when the Lord brought me in! That night I asked Brother Solbrekken I’d like him to pray for one more thing, and that was for those nerve and sleeping pills I was taking. I went home and slept like a baby! I never had to take the pills again! Praise the Lord, I am so happy!

SPINE LIKE A CANDY CANE!

Pastor Solbrekken asked me, “Yvonne, what did the doctor say was wrong with your spine? What was the disease?” I answered, “My spine was like a candy cane and then I had two vertebras growing together. You don’t have any discs in the lower part of your back but I had one there and its not supposed to be there. So, all that has been corrected!”

GOOD NEWS: The above was from a Radio interview I had with Yonne Trigg in 1985, ten years after the miracle happened. Now in 2020, her son Rodney, who was healed of asthma, informed her that we were in Edmonton. Yvonne stated that after 45 years, her spine is still well! To God be the glory, great things He has done and is still doing! We give Jesus all the honour and glory. Amen.

         All Things Are Possible

  By Pastor Max Solbrekkken, D.D.

   “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” (Mark 9:23); “And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God, for with God all things are possible.” (Mark 10: 27) 

    Some people are born into an  affluent family. They may have everything provided for them from the cradle to the grave. Others are born into families that are poor and have to struggle just to make ends meet. Everyone, however, is  born in the image of God, spirit, soul and body, with a free will and an invitation to become His child! 

    Life itself is a gift from God. Every breath we draw is a miracle. Without oxygen we wouldn't be alive. Ever stop to think about the miracles of conception, childbirth, and procreation? Where did all that come from? Who is the giver of life? And what about being born again, filled with the Holy Spirit, divine healing and eternal salvation? 

    The Holy Bible 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 the Lord formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.” (Gen.1:1-3; 2:7). 

                            OUT OF NOTHING 

                         Bereshith Bara – Ex Nihilo

    The Bible says: “God...hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom He hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds; Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His Person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.” (Heb. 1: 1-3)

    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. After Jesus Christ had poured out His sinless blood for us, He returned to His Father's Throne, and poured out  the Blessed Holy Spirit upon the 120 waiting believers!

     Our Lord had promised: “And, behold, I send the promise of My Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued  with power from on High.” (Luke 24: 49); “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto Me, both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)

                   THE CHURCH IS A MIRACLE!

     It is true that Jesus said: “... I will build My Church and the Gates of Hell shall not Prevail against it.” (Matt. 16: 18). It is also true that His Church is made up of born again, blood washed human beings who have been changed by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are, however, not perfect. By God's grace, we are members in particular of the Body of Christ and walk by faith in His Word and are indwelt by the blessed Holt Spirit. 

    The miracle is that He trusts us to preach His Gospel, be taught by His Spirit, live by His Word and use His name to heal the sick and to  cast out evil spirits! And He is not ashamed to let us be called by His Holy Name and to be adopted as His children and be heirs of eternal Life!  He forgives the sinner, restores the fallen and strengthens the weak who trust in the shed blood of Jesus Christ. He fills believers with His Holy Spirit. 

    He heals the sick and suffering according to His Word. He still fills believers with the Holy Spirit. And He still leads, teaches and  delivers those who are bound by sin, sickness, fear, sickness and evil spirits!

    He is 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.

                    A STUDY OF HEBREW TEXTS!

     The Bible states: “And God said. Let us make man in our own 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 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 for ground is taken from the the Hebrew word '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.

                       GOD MADE US FROM HIMSELF!

    “And God said, Let us (Elohim) make the blood of  God (man) an exact duplication in kind (in our image) of ourselves.” 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 are created 'an exact duplication in kind' of God. He made man out of the minute  particles (dust) of the totality 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. God took of Himself to make everything! God is All in All. Without Him, there would be Nothing, and if He decided to take His hand of this world, we would all cease to exist! 

      The First Adam was deceived by Lucifer the LIAR and plunged the entire human race into sin and condemnation. In the fulness of time, Almighty God sent His only begotten Son as the Second Adam to destroy Satan and liberate the human race through His vicarious, all atoning death on the Cross and the glorious resurrection from the dead! Hallelujah. Amen.

     St. Paul declares: “And so it is written, The first man Adam (blood of God) was made a living soul; the last Adam (blood of God) was made a quickening Spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which was natural. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from Heaven.” (1 Cor. 15:45-47)

     In the final analysis, our Saviour came into the world as the Second Adam to destroy and cleanse away the evil done by the First Adam through the shedding of His pure and holy Blood; the Blood of God! For this reason Jesus is also called the Last Adam! There will never be another one like Him. Period!

                      ONLY IN HIM IS THERE LIFE!

     Only in Him is there life for now and for eternity. 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).  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

     Christ's victory over Satan has purchased our Liberty from the EVIL ONE, for time and eternity! May God deliver everyone reading these lines, from the cursed doctrine of GAIA-Mother earth worship! The precious blood of our Saviour has redeemed us from the curse of the Law and the power of Satanic Bondage. The Blood of Jesus Christ has freed us from the slavery of sin, fear, sickness, disease and death!

     The Bible says: “For as much 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)

     JESUS said: “All power is given is given unto Me in Heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have taught you, and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the world.” (Matt. 28: 18-20)

                    CHRIST'S GREAT COMMISSION!

   “Afterward He appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat and upbraided  them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they  believed not them which had seen Him after He was risen. And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

     “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and thy shall recover.” (Mark 16: 14-18)

     Some questions: “How was it possible for the Gospel of Christ to encompass the world, when He died on that cross? Why was the Jewish Messiah rejected by His own people? Out of His band of twelve apostles, one denied knowing Jesus and another was the betrayer. Simon Peter denied Him out of cowardice and Judas betrayed Him for money or filthy lucre!

     Here is the Answer: The One who was brutally scourged with the Roman cat-of'-nine tails at Pontius Pilate's Judgment Hall and nailed to a rugged cross on the Hill of Golgotha, died to atone for the sins of mankind, past, present and future! God the Son was incarnated (God in human flesh). And the Sinless One who rose from the dead three days later through His vicarious death and glorious resurrection had purchased our eternal salvation and total Redemption! Amen.
