GOD IS ABLE, READY
AND WILLING TO DELIVER YOU!
By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
Jesus said: “Come unto Me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” (Matt.
I 1: 28)
Yes, my friend, God is still freeing men and women from their sins, sorrows, heartbreaks, fears and troubles. In this age of frustrations, nervous tensions and mental collapses, Jesus Christ is still granting peace to the troubled, joy to the discouraged, strength to the weary and healing to the sick!
Very definitely, Jesus Christ is still in the DIVINE HEALING business. He is the healer of our spirits, minds and bodies, since He alone is the Great Physician and the Deliverer of lost humanity.
In this cold, selfish and heartless world, where else could you receive such a warm welcome and such an invitation, as from our Blessed Lord? With arms outstretched He is saying: “Come unto Me!”
His call goes out to all those who are heavy laden and weary. That is why we confidently call our Gospel Crusades; ‘COME HOME TO JESUS CRUSADE’!
Thank God for the rest we receive through Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace! We receive rest from the heavy burden of sin, rest from guilt and condemnation, rest from superstitions, fears, anxieties and stress!
Jesus gives us rest from sickness, disease and pain. The ultimate rest, we receive from our Lord when we turn our lives completely over to Him in total trust and faith! He freely gives us eternal life and baptizes us with the Holy Ghost and fire! He gives us a little bit of Heaven – the earnest of our expectation - to go to heaven in. Praise the Lord!
HE HAS THE POWER!
Not only does God give us a personal invitation to come to Him and receive His love, peace and rest but He also has the power and ability to do what He promised. He is able to forgive, save, heal and bless those who call upon His name and He will do it! (Matt. 7:7-8; James 1:5; Matt. 11:28; Is. 45:22),
There is no doubt about it, God is able to answer every prayer, meet every need and do the impossible! Jesus said: “All things are possible to him that believeth” (Mark 9:23); “With men this is impossible but not with God, for with God all things are possible.” (Mark 10:27)
God is able to heal and deliver you because He has the power! Our Lord said: “All power is given unto Me in Heaven and on earth. And lo I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” (Matt. 28: 18-20)
“I beheld Satan as lightening 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)
“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 Judæa, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
GOD IS WILLING!
A leper came to Jesus and said: “If thou wilt thou canst make me clean.” (Matt. 8:2) Jesus answered the question of whether it is God’s will to heal the sick or not, when He stretched forth His hand and touched the leper saying: “I will, be thou clean.”
When the Roman Centurion came to the Saviour seeking divine healing for his servant, Jesus answered: “I will come and heal him.” The Roman officer interrupted Him by saying: “Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the Word only and my servant shall be healed.” (Matt.8: 8,9)
The Scriptures declare: “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases.” (Ps. 103:2-3); “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.” (Is.53: 4,5)
It is God's will to save, heal, deliver and bless all who come to Him in faith, believing! He is willing to deliver you right now, my dear friend!
GOD IS READY & WILLING! The big question is, “ARE YOU READY AND WILLING? God is more willing to give than we are to ask. Even before we call He will answer. This shows His willingness to bless. God stands ready to answer your prayers!
The Bible says: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow, though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” (Is. I-18).
Jesus said: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask Him.” (Matt.7: 7,8,11)
YOU MUST CALL UPON HIM!
The Bible says: “If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”. (2 Chron. 7:14)
“Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered.” (Joel 2:32; Acts 2:21). Remember, my friend, you must call upon Him in faith! You must expect an answer when you pray! Our Lord said: “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing ye shall receive.” (Matt.21: 22)
Again, the Holy Record states: “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.” (James 1: 5, 6)
By faith and in humble obedience to God’s Word, I say to you, my friend, receive the blessing of God upon your life today, in Jesus Name! Write for a free prayer cloth today!
As God healed the sick through the prayers of
and the handkerchiefs and aprons that he sent to the sick and suffering, so God is healing the sick today! He has not changed, but is “the same yesterday, today and forever.” (Heb. 13:8) St. Paul
The Holy Scripture records these miracles thusly: “And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them and the evil spirits went out of them.” (Acts 19: 11, 12)
