Planet Earth
Does NASA Data Show Global Warming Lost in Space?
Published July 29, 2011
The predicted temperature changes (darker red indicating greater change) due to global warming, based on data that scientists, policymakers and the public are now questioning.
Has a central tenant of global warming just collapsed?
Climate change forecasts have for years predicted that carbon dioxide would trap heat on Earth, and increases in the gas would lead to a planetwide rise in temperatures, with devastating consequences for the environment.
But long-term data from NASA satellites seems to contradict the predictions dramatically, according to a new study.
“There is a huge discrepancy between the data and the forecasts that is especially big over the oceans,” said Dr. Roy Spencer, a research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and U.S. science team leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer -- basically a big thermometer flying on NASA’s Aqua satellite.

“The satellite observations suggest there is much more energy lost to space during and after warming than the climate models show,” he said. The planet isn't heating up, in other words.
James Taylor, a senior fellow for environment policy at conservative think-tank The Heartland Institute, wrote at Forbes that the meaning of the new research is clear -- and it compromises what he called a "central premise of alarmist global warming theory."
"Real-world measurements … show far less heat is being trapped in the Earth's atmosphere than the alarmist computer models predict, and far more heat is escaping into space than the alarmist computer models predict," Taylor wrote.
But with any story on the science of climate change, scientific truths are never so simple.
Andrew Dessler, a professor of atmospheric sciences at Texas A&M University, called Spencer a "controversial figure" within the climate research community. He argued that Spencer's paper is neither new nor correct.
"He's taken an incorrect model, he's tweaked it to match observations, but the conclusions you get from that are not correct," Dessler told
Many scientists believe that as the planet warms, more water vapor moves into the atmosphere. This water vapor exists as clouds, which trap more heat, creating a vicious loop.
Spencer sees it differently. He thinks that the whole cycle starts with the clouds. In other words, random increases in cloud cover cause climate warming. The cloud changes are caused by "chaos in the climate system," Spencer told LiveScience.
The truth of climate change remains murky, as always -- something even Spencer notes in his new paper.
"Atmospheric feedback diagnosis of the climate system remains an unsolved problem," he noted.

Canadian Muslim speaks about Multiculturalism & Political Correctness

From the Calgary Herald ...

Mahfooz Kanwar, PHD, is a Sociologist and an Instructor Emeritus at Mount
Royal College.   This very wise, educated gentleman is a first generation
Canadian whose parents immigrated from Pakistan.  He is also Muslim, but
truly understands what it is to be Canadian first, even though he and his
parents are from another country.

What is Canada becoming?  Canada's tolerance misplaced?
By Mahfooz Kanwar, For The Calgary Herald, March   30, 2009

Canada's Immigration Minister Jason Kenney is getting flak from the usual
suspects, but he deserves praise instead.

Recently, Kenney pointed that out while at a meeting in Toronto.  Members of
Canada's Pakistani community called on him to make Punjabi one of Canada's
official languages.  It makes me angry that such an idea would enter the
minds of my fellow and former countrymen, let alone express them to a
Minister of the Crown.

A few months ago, I was dismayed to learn that Erik Millett, the principal
of Belleisle School in Springfield, N.B., limited playing our national
Anthem because the families of a couple of his students objected to it.

As a social scientist, I oppose this kind of political correctness, lack of
assimilation of new immigrants to mainstream Canada, hyphenated-Canadian
identity, and the lack of patriotism in our great nation.

Increasingly, Canadians feel restricted in doing things the Canadian way
lest we offend minorities.  We cannot even say Merry Christmas without fear
of causing offence.  It is amazing that 77 per cent of the Canadian majority
are scared of offending 23 per cent of minorities.  We have become so timid
that the majority cannot assert its own freedom of expression.  We cannot
publicly question certain foreign social customs, traditions and values that
do not fit into the Canadian ethos of equality.  Rather than encouraging new
immigrants to adjust to Canada, we tolerate peculiar ways of doing things.
We do not remind them that they are in Canada, not in their original

In a multicultural society, it is the responsibility of minorities to adjust
to the majority.  It does not mean that minorities have to totally
amalgamate with the majority.   They can practice some of their cultural
traditions within their homes -- their backstage behavior.  However, when
outside of their homes, their front stage behavior should resemble
mainstream Canadian behavior.  Whoever comes to Canada must learn the limits
of our system. We do not kill our daughters or other female members of our
families who refuse to wear hijab, niqab or burka which are not mandated by
the Qur'an anyway.  We do not kill our daughters if they date the "wrong"
men.  A 17-year-old Sikh girl should not have been killed in British
Columbia by her father because she was caught dating a Caucasian man.

We do not practice the dowry system in Canada, and do not kill our brides
because they did not bring enough dowry.  Millions of female fetuses are
aborted every year in India, and millions of female infants have been killed
by their parents in India and China.  Thousands of brides in India are
burned to death in their kitchens because they did not bring enough dowry
into a marriage.  Some 30,000 Sikhs living abroad took the dowries but
abandoned their brides in India in 2005. This is not accepted in Canada.

In some countries, thousands of women are murdered every year for family or
religious honour.  We should not hide behind political correctness and we
should expose the cultural and religious background of these heinous crimes,
especially if it happens in Canada. We should also expose those who bring
their cultural baggage containing the social custom of female circumcision.
I was shocked when I learned about two cases of this barbaric custom
practiced in St. Catharines, Ont.  a few years ago.

I have said it on radio and television, have written in my columns in The
Calgary Herald, and I have written in my latest  book, Journey to Success,
that I do not agree with the hyphenated  identity in Canada because it
divides our loyalties. My argument is that people are not forced to come to
Canada and they are not forced to stay here. Those who come here of their
own volition and stay here must be truly patriotic Canadians or go back.

I am a first-generation Canadian from Pakistan.  I left Pakistan 45 years
ago.  I cannot ignore Pakistan, because it is the homeland of my folks, but
my first loyalty should be and is to Canada.  I am, therefore, a proud
Canadian, no longer a Pakistani-Canadian.  I am a Canadian Muslim, not a
Muslim Canadian.

I do not agree with those Canadians who engage in their fight against the
system in their original countries on Canadian soil.  They should go back
and fight from within.  For example, some of the Sikhs, Tamil Tigers,
Armenians and others have disturbed the peace in Canada because of their
problems back home.  Recently, a low-level leader of MQM, the Mafia of
Pakistan, came to Canada as a refugee and started to organize public rallies
to collect funds for their cause in Pakistan.  On July 18, 2007, the Federal
Court of Canada ruled that MQM is a terrorist group led by London-based
Altaf Hussain, their godfather.  As a member in the coalition government of
Pakistan, this terrorist group is currently collaborating with the Taliban
in Pakistan. That refugee was deported back to Pakistan.

Similarly, I disagree with newcomers who bring their religious baggage here.
For example, Muslims are less than two per cent of the Canadian population,
yet in 2004 and 2005, a fraction of them, the fundamentalists, wanted to
bring Sharia law to Canada. If they really want to live under Sharia, they
should go to the prison-like countries where Sharia is practiced.

I once supported multiculturalism in Canada because I believed it gave us a
sense of pluralism and diversity.  However, I have observed and experienced
that official multiculturalism has encouraged convolution of the values that
make Canada the kind of place people want to immigrate to in the first place

Here, we stand on guard for Canada, not for countries we came from.  Like it
or not, take it or leave it, standing on guard only for Canada is our
national maxim. Remember, O Canada is our national anthem which must not be
disregarded by anybody, including the teacher in Springfield, N. B.

Dare to be a Daniel; Dare to stand alone; Dare to have a purpose firm and Dare to make it known!


By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
Below is one of the messages I preached in Arima, Trinidad during the February 1970 Black Power Uprising.

Rev. Patrick Ryan, General Superintendent of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies had invited me to Trinidad in the belief that we would plant a Church there. As we had done previously, I pledged to pay the TOTAL EXPENSES for my Team and the Crusade – hotels, meals, advertising in newspapers, on radio and TV and thousands of handbills!

The Solbrekken Evangelistic Association of Canada also offered to underwrite Rev. Patrick Ryan’s salary for ONE YEAR so that he could begin at once to build a congregation with all the new converts we expected to reach!

Suddenly, News Reports were everywhere that the Black Power Uprising had gathered a CROWD of 20,000 to 30,000 and were marching against Dr. Eric Williams and the Government. All Caucasians (Whiteys) were staying indoors and I was advised to do likewise. An Evangelist by the name of David Terril (whom I do not know) had been preaching in Trinidad, but had suddenly folded his tent and returned to the USA.

 I spoke to the co-operating Ministers thusly: “I did not come here to hide. I came to preach the Gospel so that a Church may be established in Arima for the glory of God. I am not afraid of the ‘Black Power’ and the Crusade will go forward as planned.”


Rev. A.W. Rowe, District Superintendent of the PAON in Newfoundland and Spirit filled Hutterite Pastor Terry Miller of Manitoba had accompanied me to Trinidad. Besides Rev. Patrick Ryan, we were joined by Rev. Turnel Nelson of Woodruff, Rev. Allister Alexander of Morvant, Rev. Marcus Roberts of Port of Spain, Rev. Timothy Brown, Assistant Supt. of the Pentecostal Assemblies and many other Ministers.

About five thousand people attended the premier service! Rev. Dennis White, President of the Pentecostal Bible College led the singing. I donned my white suit which had been tailored for me in India (1966) at the cost of $17.00. My comment was: “I want to be a good target should they have any plans to eliminate me.”

My message was titled: ‘POWER’~ Not Black Power, White Power, Brown Power, Yellow Power, Money Power, Student Power, but Holy Ghost Power! It was a tremendous meeting and no one moved a finger to oppose us as the POWER of GOD fell upon the crowd and the Revival swept the area and continued all week with great Signs, Wonders & Miracles. Many new souls were won for Christ’s Kingdom!

Rev. Patrick Ryan founded the Church and apparently that Church is presently one of Trinidad’s great churches. All glory to God!
The CROWD of Black Power leftist rebels WAS WRONG and people of Trinidad & Tobago rallied behind Prime Minister Eric Williams and Democracy won the day!

The Crowd has always been wrong and is it is still wrong! The Bible has always been right and is right today! The Word of God says: “Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil.” (Ex. 23: 2)

As we look back across the pages of history, we observe that in many instances when the time came to make the right decision in a mob atmosphere, the CROWD WAS WRONG!

From the crowd who called for the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth to the crowds who called for the blood of the martyrs in Rome’s Coliseum in the time of Nero, to the multitudes who hailed Adolf Hitler as the Great Deliverer of Europe, until recent times when the Red Guards and their murderous Communist thugs rampaged through the streets of Mainland China in a purge of torturing, killing and brainwashing, an intelligent person would have to agree that the CROWD WAS WRONG!

The Bible warns: “Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil.” (Ex.23: 2) Better advice was never given to mankind!Just because others are doing certain things does not mean that you must follow in their footsteps. To the contrary, let the Word of God and your conscience lead you, since a healthy conscience will be permeated by the Holy Spirit to understand right from wrong!


Here is how young minds have been perverted: In some countries, ungodly, atheistic university academics have used their position of authority to brainwash young people’s minds with subversive ideas that caused them to intimidate their leaders, disobey law and order and even kill those who disagreed with them!

 I WARN TODAY’S YOUTH: Do not become involved with the pot smoking, drug taking crowd of loose living leftists from the permissive and perverted crowd! Beware of so-called intellectuals who are filled with rage, hatred and pride. They will harm you. They will hurt you. They will do you wrong. Do not trust them!

 Stand up for Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible. Don’t let anyone deceive you. If they do not believe in God, our Saviour Jesus Christ and His Word, you cannot afford to believe them! Stand for truth and righteousness regardless of cost! Do not become fearful, allow yourself to be intimidated or bought off by the influences of unrighteousness which is overwhelmingly present in this wicked and sinful world!

Here is a beautiful Sunday school chorus that still thrills my soul:Dare to be a Daniel, dare to stand alone, dare to have a purpose firm and dare to make it known.’ Take a look at Daniel’s triumph. A plan was devised by men who hated Daniel to destroy him. A decree was made that stated: “If anyone should ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days except to King Darius, he should be cast into the Den of Lions.” (Dan. 6: 7)

Besides being a ‘man of God’ Daniel was also the wisest and most efficient man in the Kingdom, nor was there any fault found in him. (Dan. 6: 4) On only one point could these wicked, hateful, heathen enemies of Daniel accuse him; the worship he gave to the true and living God of Heaven!

Three times a day Daniel would fall upon his face before his open window and give glory to the Eternal God. When those who envied and hated him had laid the trap to destroy him, found him worshipping the Lord they demanded that the new law be carried out. And Daniel was cast into the den of lions!

Here is the truth I wish to stress: Even though Daniel knew that the new law had been enacted, he did not deviate from his position as a true worshipper of Almighty God. Knowing that he would be cast into a den of lions did not deter him from his devotion to God and from his prayer life!


As genuine Christians, we cannot hide our relationship to God from our fellowmen! Jesus demands public confession from His followers. He said: “Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of Me and of My words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when He cometh in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” (Mark )

“Whosoever shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in Heaven. But whosoever will deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in Heaven.” (Matt.10: 32, 33)

Here is Daniel’s response in the face of death: “Now when Daniel knew the writing was signed, he went into his house, and his window being opened in his chamber, towards Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.” (Dan.6:10)

My prayer is: “O God, let the uncompromising loyalty of Daniel in the face of great danger be an example to us today in our Christian walk!”

The CROWD in Babylon obeyed the King’s decree, but Daniel stood alone and God vindicated him. There is a saying: When in Rome do as the Romans do, but I say to you: Live as a true Christian everywhere including Rome; Never compromise your stand for Christ regardless what others do!

 The crowd will take the road of least resistance. The crowd will take the broad downward road. The crowd will always compromise the truth and look for some way to cut corners. The crowd hates the teachings of Jesus Christ and despises the straight and narrow way of the Gospel! The crowd is deceived by the allurement of the world, the flesh and the devil and has been made captive by the Wicked One “at his will.”  The crowd has been blinded by the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life! (2 Tim.2: 26; 1 John 2: 15-18; John 12: 40)
Some time ago a major advertising company used this slogan, ‘MILLIONS CAN’T BE WRONG’. The inference was that because millions of people purchased their product that was proof that their product was the best and that the crowd was right! Let me give you a Scriptures that disproves that theory: “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” (Prov.16: 25)

It may seem like the right thing to do to follow the crowds, fads and temperaments of society, but in order to be a strong and effective Christian in God’s Kingdom you must stand true for what you know is right.

  It may seem right to do what others are doing like lying, stealing, hating, cursing, watching pornography, smoking, drinking alcohol, abusing drugs, gambling, frequenting discotheques, indulging in adultery, fornication, incest, sexual perversion or committing graft and violence through rape, abortion or murder!

If you could, however, talk with the thousands who are dying of cancer in the lungs due to cigarette smoking or to the multitudes of drunkards on Skid Row or to the great numbers of victims of broken homes due to violence, criminal activity, drunkenness, gambling or drugs you would realize that it is not smart to follow the crowd!

Study the life of MOSES, the great ‘Jewish Law Giver’! The Bible says: “By faith Moses when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season.” (Heb.11: 24, 25) 

Moses could have become Egypt’s Pharaoh, but turned his back on earthly majesty, pomp and power to identify with the Hebrew slaves and the Lord God Jehovah. May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you, my friend!                      Ω

Jesus said: "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from Heaven. Behold, I give unto you power... over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any wise hurt you." (Luke 10: 18, 19)

by Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
      “Be sober, be vigilant: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour; Whom resist steadfast in the faith…” (1 Peter 5: 8, 9)

     The Bible warns us of the treachery, duplicity, cunning and deceptive abilities of the Evil One to tempt, snare and kill the children of men who are created in the image and likeness of God!
      Every time that Satan looks upon a human being he rages with hatred, fear and a deep foreboding because of his failure to destroy the Jesus Christ (Incarnate Son of God) Who had come to this earth to defeat him and liberate us!
       He cringes in fear because he knows that he must bow before our Lord Jesus Christ and declare Him King of kings and Lord of lords to the glory of God the Father. And he trembles in agony as awaits his doom of being cast into the ‘lake of fire’ forever! (Rev.20: 10)
      He is haunted by the sound of Jesus’ blood falling to the earth on Calvary’s Hill and Jesus’ cry, “It is finished.” (Tetelestai: gr. It is finished. It is fulfilled. It is paid). Knowing that he will hear those words throughout eternity, and forever remember that it could have been different had he not committed High Treason against his Creator, Almighty God. (Is.14: 12-14; Ezek.28: 2-6)
      In his blind hatred, pride and rebellion he soldiers on in his unjust, evil and wicked cause against God and the jewel of His creation, Man!

      BILLY GRAHAM stated: Man’s fiercest foe from the Garden of Eden right to the end of time is not cancer, communism, disease or death.  It is the devil.”
       Dr. Rebecca Brown wasn’t doing research for a book on witchcraft when she met Elaine, nor was she thinking about evil spirits, demons or the occult.
      Brown, a medical doctor, was shocked by Elaine’s story of fear, torment and bondage.  When therapy and drugs failed to help, Brown was amazed at her patient’s recovery by her acceptance of Jesus Christ.
      After Elaine’s dramatic healing and escape from Satanism, other tormented young people in similar straits began calling the MD’s office, seeking similar assistance.
       Dr. Brown’s recent book He Came to Set the Captives Free is the clinical report of many of her patients, who decided after deliverance, to publicize their traumatic encounters with the devil.
      After seven years of medical and psychological research, the medic was convinced that Satanism is a most destructive and evil power, a power that can be conquered only through faith in Christ.
       This should come as no surprise since Jesus said that Satan - the thief - had come “only to kill, steal and to destroy”. (John 10:10) 
That Satan is a liar is no secret!  That he is the “father of lies” is well known.  Jesus stated: “He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.  When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it”. (John 8:44)

1)     Satan: ‘sah-tahn’- (heb.) for ‘the hater, opponent, enemy, adversary: one who resists, obstructs, hinders that which is good’.  When the form ‘ha-satan’ (the adversary) occurs, the translation is usually (Satan), not his name, but his accurate description: hateful enemy!  Strong’s #7854
2)     Devil:  (gr.) for liar, false accuser, traducer!
3)     Beelzebub:  (gr.) for god of flies, god of filth!

Satan is the enemy of God and man.  The devil is a liar extraordinaire.  He is the filthiest of the filthy: more corrupt and perverted than any abominable sex maniac, sadist, suicide bomber or serial killer!
You may ask, “How can you be so sure that Satan is to blame for all the bad things that are happening in our world”!  PLAIN and SIMPLE:
His hands drip with the blood of millions of souls through his emissaries who enslave, rape, mutilate, murder and terrorize!  He works through power-hungry, hate-filled political and religious leaders who brainwash others into following them on the same path of destruction; hijacking airplanes, taking hostages, bombing public buildings, hospitals, schools, TV stations, buses, trains and bridges, injuring and killing innocent people! 
Satan is the architect of fear, torment, enslavement and war!  He pits man against man and causes divisions in families, communities, nations and churches; resulting in major upheavals, which inflict long term spiritual, physical and psychological scars on all concerned – especially children – bringing untold misery to society.
You must ask yourself: “Who is the originator of sin?”  The answer is: “Satan!”  Again, “Who is responsible for sickness, disease and death?”  The answer again is “Satan, the destroyer”!

      Dr. John Wesley White warns:  “The devil.  We all wish he’d go away.  But he’s around a lot more than he was yesterday, and he’s going to be more visible and vocal tomorrow than he is today.  Like a vast, vicious virus that won’t stop, his iniquitous vices are on every hand.  To be ignorant of his tactics is to lay ourselves open to chronic peril”.

     In his book, The Second Coming:  Satanism in America, Arthur Lyons states “that from a scientific or secular viewpoint, the 1970’s revival of devil worship, witchcraft, sorcery and occultism in America was totally unexpected.  Most intellectuals had expected belief in the devil to disappear within a few years”.
        The Bible states that he is Abaddan the destroyer, and St. Paul warns that he is such a deceiver that he will “appear as an angel of light”. (2 Cor. 11: 14)
       Dabbling in the occult can open the door to possession and a controlled life, which turns people into Satan’s slaves, observes Brown.
       Elaine’s story is one of sadistic and sexual bondage to evil spirits and a ritualistic marriage to the devil.
       Other experts are also sounding the alarm, warning of the dramatic rise in Satan worship in the US and the psychological damage it is doing to unsuspecting youngsters.  As well as the terrible trauma it causes to their families, friends and communities!
       Earlier, Satanism was dismissed as a harmless fad that would soon die out, but now sociologists and clergymen are encountering new, scary and very real problems linked to devil worship.
       Police have been checking out reports that covens of young people are gathering in wooded areas near Los Angeles, to worship the devil.  Sacrificial satanic rituals like killing cats and dogs have been confirmed and officials suspect humans have been sacrificed!


      So serious is the problem, churches in the area sponsored a seminar several years ago on Satanism and neo-paganism just to learn more on the subject.
       The seminar featured a Christian response to evil, exorcism and satanic deception. “Satanism is alive and well, and the sad thing is that it is growing among teenagers”, states Roger Burt, a Christian authority.
       Dr. Billy Graham declares:  “A generation ago, when I began as an evangelist, people generally, and intellectuals in particular thought of the devil as an anachronistic symbol, a handy expression of profanity, or as a superstition believed in chiefly by religious eccentrics.  Today, the devil is getting maximum exposure, precisely as the Bible predicted would happen prior to Christ’s return.”
       According to prophecy, Satan will make a momentous comeback just before Jesus returns.
       He will orchestrate the world’s greatest confrontation, the Battle of Armageddon’.  In the end Satan loses totally.  Only one angel will be needed to cast him into the bottomless pit forever!
       For a short while he will bask in the limelight as a part of a troika - the unholy trinity - together with the antichrist and the false prophet. Then, he will be cast into the Lake of Fire forever. Hallelujah!
      St James gives us some very good counsel: “Submit yourselves 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 will lift you up.” (James 4: 7, 8, 10)

Fifty Years of God's Blessings across the world as the Word has been preached in purity & power!

                                 Jay Compton Reporting

For nearly 50 years Pastor Max Solbrekken has proclaimed the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit to multitudes of people across the world. His September Gospel Unity Crusade in Uganda is being sponsored by nearly all Churches and will reach hundreds of thousands.

He has laboured untiringly in hundreds of crusade across the world preaching to the headhunters of Northen Luzon in the Philippines, the Hindus of India, the Muslims of Pakistan, the atheists of Russia, the Budhists of the Orient, the Lutherans of Norway and the Roman Catholics of Malta. He has preached in stadiums, football fields and Churches, as well as Universities, Seminaries and Prisons around
the world.

On December 6, 1973 Max Solbrekken became the first Protestant Minister to preach in Valetta, Malta after ministering God's Word to His Grace Monsignor Michael Gunzi Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Church of Malta, thus changing a 1,000 year-old-law put in place by the Maltese Knights that allowed only Roman Catholic clergy to preach in that country.

On April 13, 2005 Pastor Max Solbrekken had the privilege of preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ at the Assembly of God Crusade at Parque Brasil in Paulinia, State of Sao Paulo to 300,000 people. Four thousand buses had brought 200,000 people to the crusade.

In 2006 Pastor Max Solbrekken was invited to speak at the First Pentecostal Conference held in Juba, Sudan and in 2007  he spoke at the First Ministers' Conference in Darfur, Sudan as well as in Cairo Egypt.

In 2007, Max & Donna renovated an old Jewish Synagogue in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and founded Christ the  Healer Gospel Church.  And after months of hard labour and much expense the Max Solbrekken World Mission has totally renovated the old Moravian Church on Hiway 623 outside of New Sarepta, Alberta.

On July 1 through July 4 the HOUSE OF PRAYER was dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ for His glory and honour. A huge Gospel tent seating more than 500 was also dedicated to our saviour and the salvation of souls! And Lord willing, an 8th day Campmeeting is being planned on the 3 acre property for the latter part of August.

By God's grace, well-known Gospel Singers Jay and Nancy Compton have joined Max & Donna to bring the blessings of God to the New Sarepta area.

Dr. Max Solbrekken starts the SCHOOL OF PRAYER on Friday July 15 at 7 PM. He is being taught by the Holy Spirit and is a student of Martin  Luther, Count Zinzendorf, John Wesley, Andrew Murray, David Branaird, Praying Hyde, Robert Murray McChynne and A.W.Tozer.

Max & Donna Solbrekken are humbly asking all those are able, to come to their OPEN HOUSE for coffee and donuts on SATURDAY 2:00 PM - 400 PM. On Saturday at 7:00 PM they will show the powerful movie 'First Fruits' about the amazing and miraculous ministry of the EARLY MORAVIANS and Count Zinzendorf.

On Sunday at 2:30 PM there will be special Divine Healing service. Pastor Max Solbrekken will be preaching and ministering to everyone.

On September 13 - 18, Pastor Solbrekken will be ministering in Kampala Uganda to huge crowds. Nearly all the Protestant Churches will be backing the Max Solbrekken Gospel Unity Crusade and Minister's Conference in which the Holy Spirit will draw multitudes to Christ.

Everything is shaping up for the final conflict with the antichrist forces of Militant Islam against God's Chosen People of Israel, and the appearance of the Grand Mahdi who may fulfill the role of the Biblical Antichrist - Pastor Max Solbrekken

Preparing The Hordes of Magog - Why Is The Largest Army In The Middle East About To Double Its Size?

With Prime Minister Erdogan's Islamist AK party having seized its third landslide election victory in Turkey, many throughout the international community have been watching to see what will be next on the Turkish agenda.

Now there are strong indicators in the Turkish media that Turkey is planning on literally doubling the size of its army – this coming from the nation that already has the largest army in Middle East and the second-largest army in NATO, second only to the United States. Presently, Turkey's army has over 500,000 troops. Its army is larger than France, Germany and England combined. And now Turkish media are reporting that they are planning on adding another 500,000 paid soldiers.

According to Egemen Bağış, a state minister and Turkey's chief EU negotiator, the purpose of the army is to kill two birds with one stone, overcoming two of Turkey's biggest challenges: terrorism and unemployment. This move would create half a million new jobs for Turkey while answering once and for all Turkey's problem with Kurdish separatist terrorists in the southeast.

Bağış spoke to journalists at the Turkish ambassador's office in Brussels. "The government is prepared to hire 500,000 people. ... This structural change will also contribute to our struggle with unemployment," he said.

Turkey's nation defense minister, Vedci Gonul, stated that the new army is "the future of Turkey." But he also said that the actual number of paid soldiers is yet to be determined pending a government study. According to Gonul, the creation of such a large army could take several years to complete.

A poll conducted shows that 80 percent of Turks support the idea while only 9 percent are opposed.

Despite the government's claims that the purpose of the army would be to address terrorism, skepticism concerning such a massive force is well-deserved. First of all, creating an army this size merely to address Turkey's terrorism problem, primarily from the PKK, a Kurdish separatist group in the southeast, would be like trying to kill an ant using a nuclear warhead. Secondly, such a move certainly will only reinforce the concerns of those who believe that Turkey has broad-ranging neo-Ottoman regional aspirations.

The silence of the Western media has been surprising. Imagine Israel announcing an expansion of its forces by 500,000 men to address its Palestinian terrorism problem. Yet the Western media has yet to comment regarding Turkey's grandiose plans.

Such an expansion would be particularly concerning in light of the Turkish government's recent swing toward Islamist political alliances. They have worked to significantly reinforce strategic alliances with both Iran and Syria, two of the most well-established state sponsors of terrorism globally, while significantly cooling its relationship with Israel and the United States. Despite this, the Obama administration this past January, sold the Turkish Air Force 100 F-35 Lightning II fighter jets. Turkey already manufactures it's own F-16s.

It is also essential to once again remind ourselves of the recent accomplishments of the Islamist AK party under Prime Minister Erdogan's leadership. In just the past several years, the AK party has edged ever closer to establishing a full-blown dictatorship, all in the name of democracy. Since 2002, they have managed to accomplish the following:

•occupy the presidency;
•occupy the seat of prime minister;
•gain a large majority of seats in the parliament;
•fill the judiciary with Islamist-leaning judges;
•behead the top echelons of the military;
•infiltrate the police force (over 70 percent of officers are members the Islamist Gulen movement);
•intimidate and imprison Turkish journalists (there are more Turkish journalists in prison than any other nation in the world – more than China or Iran).

The nation's leadership is now working toward a bill authorizing them to rewrite the Turkish Constitution, giving them far more sweeping powers over the military and judiciary.

In last month's victory speech, Prime Minister Erdogan couldn't have made his regional ambitions any clearer:

"Believe me, Sarajevo won today as much as Istanbul, Beirut won as much as Izmir, Damascus won as much as Ankara, Ramallah, Nablus, Jenin, the West Bank, Jerusalem won as much as Diyarbakir."

In a follow up commentary piece, J.E. Dyer, a retired U.S. Naval intelligence officer asked how the world would take it if Nicolas Sarkozy had proclaimed that a victory for him was a victory for Moscow as much as Paris, for Washington as much as Lyon, for Ankara as much as Marseilles. Dyer then very appropriately reminded us that such comments are, "imperialist at worst, absurdly arrogant at best – to speak of your electoral victories as conferring benefits on foreign humanity – especially on those once occupied by your nation in its days of empire."

For years, several others and I have been warning of Turkey's neo-Ottoman dreams and regional ambitions. And for just as many years, the compliant left-wing media has mocked the notion. Within the next several years, with doubling of the Turkish army, it appears as though there will be 500,000 more reasons to worry about Turkey's regional ascension.

My good friend Jan Ernst Gabrielsen & I worked together in some powerful meetings in North and South Sudan and in Darfur in 2006 & 2007. Gabrielsen is considered the Grandfather of the Pentecostal Movement in Sudan. I add my congratulations to South Sudan! - Pastor Max Solbrekken

Dear Max!
I just want to shout together with the people of Southern Sudan today a very big

At last you are a free nation after all these years of oppression from the North! All since before Sudan got its independence from Britan in 1956 the war for independence have been going on with exception of the years from 1972 to 1983 after the Addis Ababa agreement.

The starting years of Sudan Pentecostal Churches!
It was these years that laid the foundation of the Sudan Pentecostal Churches after Rev. Benjamin
L. Terah came back from Bible School in Kenya in 1976. He did a great work over many years and laid a good and strong foundation for the work.
   I will never forget the first time I came to help him in June 1977 and saw the breakthrough that the powerful Holy Spirit message had already got there. 
   It became many, many visits to Southern Sudan from that time and all up to 1983 when the war started again.

The war did not stop the church expansion!
Even though Benjamin L. Terah had to run from the Sudan as a refugee to Kenya, Ethiopia and USA, the seed had been planted, and the churches grew. Not only in the South, but also into the North Sudan. With more than 500 local churches all over the country the church denomination has become a powerful partaker in the development of the Jesus Life in Sudan.

Today is an answer to much prayer!
The declaration of Southern Sudan today is a clear answer to intense and continual prayer of the thousands of committed christians in Sudan! I want to shout HALLELUJAH! I am rejoicing with all of you, and we that have been seing your struggles during all these years we contratulate you of all our heart!
   I wanted so much to have been there today, but unfortunately it was impossible for me to be there! Even though I am celebrating with you this day of freedom and I am earnestly praying for the peace and stability of the new nation. May God hold his hand over you as people and your leaders during the difficult time that is in front of you. It will not be easy, but with the help of God and willingness to work hard and serve, you will succeed!
May God bless Southern Sudan!

Yours in His Harvest
Jan Ernst

President Reagan called the Soviet Union, "The Evil Empire". Can anyone doubt that Iran deserves to be placed in that category? - Pastor Max Solbrekken

Iranian Pastor Faces Brutal Choice: Reject Christian Faith or Die

Thursday, 07 Jul 2011 09:27 AM
By Mike Tighe
A U.S. State Department official expressed outrage and pressed Iran to reverse a court decision that gives an Iranian pastor an outrageous, and suicidal, choice: Reject his Christian faith, or die.

The 32-year-old pastor, Yosef Nadarkhani, was arrested in October 2009 for apostasy because he objected to the teaching of Islam to Christian children at Iranian schools. He was sentenced to death by hanging late last year, a verdict that he appealed to Iran’s Supreme Court.

Late last month, the appeal appeared to have been granted, as his lawyer indicated to a news agency on July 3. But an Iranian human rights agency now says the ruling actually imposes the recant-or-die choice, according to

A U.S. State Department official issued a statement Wednesday expressing dismay at the prospect.

“While Iran’s leaders hypocritically claim to promote tolerance, they continue to detain, imprison, harass, and abuse those who simply wish to worship the faith of their choosing,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.

“We join the international community in continuing to call on the Iranian government to respect the fundamental rights of all its citizens and uphold its international commitments to protect them.”

The indictment against Nadarkhani, a father and evangelical pastor who became a Christian at age 19, accused him of organizing evangelistic meetings, sharing his faith, inviting others to convert, running a house church, and “denying Islamic values,” CNSNews reports.

After his death sentence, his appeal appeared to win a reversal of the fate of hanging.

But the victory was not as clear-cut as it seemed, and Nadarkhani now has been told that he may face new charges or the case could be returned to the original sentencing court in northern Iran’s Gilan province, according to the Human Rights Activists News Agency, an association that Iranian human rights advocates established in 2009.

Now, it appears that the Gilan court will “question the defendant again in order to determine whether he believes in Islam or not. If he is a Muslim, Yosef Nadarkhani must be released. If it is determined that he is a Christian, he may repent from his faith. Otherwise, if he insists on his beliefs, the death penalty must be carried out,” CNSNews quotes the agency as saying.

And the advocacy group Christian Solidarity Worldwide said, that, despite reports that the death sentence had been reversed, “in reality the Supreme Court appears to have added a precondition requiring him to renounce his faith, or face execution.”

Although Nadarkhani didn’t practice any faith before he became a Christian at 19, he was born to Muslim parents and Islamic law dictates that a child of Muslim parents is considered to be a Muslim.

Although apostasy is not an offense in the Iranian penal code, CNSNews reports that Iran’s constitution includes a clause demanding that, if a basis for a judicial ruling does not exist in the law, judges must turn to “reliable Islamic sources or a valid fatwa.”

The most recent execution of a Christian in Iran for his faith took place 21 years ago, when Assemblies of God Pastor Hussein Sodmand was hanged after refusing to recant, according to CNSNews.
