Personal Letter from Max Solbrekken

Dear Christian Friend:

Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord! Thank
you so much for your generous gift to this Ministry of Compassion & Love!
May the Lord richly bless you according to His Word!

A recent report in a Norwegian Christian Magazine confirms my belief
that the reason we have not “turned the world upside down” like the early
believers in Jesus, is because too many of us keep our faith to ourselves!

We say that our relationship with Jesus is private; we do not want to
offend anyone; people can go to church or speak to a Minister if they so
desire! Why should we be concerned about the pagan and the horrible way they live, treat their women or raise children to be suicide bombers?

The article in DagenMagazinet reported on an inter-religious Panel
debating the subject: Is Jesus Our Time’s Last Tabu? All the members on
the panel agreed that people would rather discuss Religion or God than talk
about Jesus. They all agreed that Jesus was avoided at all costs!

A journalist said: “Why shouldn't we talk about Jesus? He alone can
solve people’s problems. He is defined as the Son of God and the Saviour
of the world, whereas when you discuss religion or God, in general terms,
many and varied interpretations may be used.”

They are afraid of the supernatural and what it might cost them to make a stand for Jesus and His gospel. The devil has blocked their minds from believing the truth, and they reject the Risen Son of God  and are unwilling to obey Him as Lord! How sad, when He is waiting to save, forgive, heal and blessevery one of us!!!

Jesus Christ stated: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life and no
man cometh unto the Father but by Me.” (John 14: 6); “For God so
loved the world that He gave His ONly begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but haveeverlasting life.” (John 3: 16)

The Bible states: “That all men should honour the Son, even as they
honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father
which hath sent Him.” (John 5: 23); “And this is the record that God hath
given to us eternal life, and this life is in the Son. He that hath the Son
hath life and he that hath not the Son hath not life.” (1 John 5: 11, 12)

JESUS SAID: “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to
every creature. (Mark 16: 15-18); “…The harvest truly is plenteous, but
the labouers are few. Pray ye therefore that the Lord of the Harvest,
they He will send forth labourers into His harvest.” (Matt.9: 37, 38)

May God richly bless, strengthen and heal you and your family!

Your servant for Jesus sake,
Max Solbrekken, 2 Cor. 4: 5
