The True God and the Counterfeits: The Ever Living, Almighty God, Creator, Lord and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ declared, "I am the first and the last; and beside Me there is No God." (Isaiah 44:6) What part of NO GOD don't the teachers of pagan religions understand? - Pastor Max Solbrekken

JESUS: DESIRE OF ALL NATIONS!
By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
“And I will shake all nations, and the DESIRE of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of Hosts.” (Haggai 2:7)
Greetings in the precious name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and a Blessed Christmas to you and all yours! Thank you so much for your support of this Ministry!
It is always a real joy to consider the great mystery, mercy and grace that has been given to us through the incarnation, when God became a Man (God in human flesh) to redeem us!
If ever the WORLD was in NEED of a SAVIOUR it is TODAY – a time of intrepidation, tension, insecurity, catastrophe and violence around the world! So much has changed and yet the basic facts remain the same.Mankind’s sins of lying, theft, greed, lust, hatred, murder and idolatry remain the same.
The power of the Gospel also remains the same, to cleanse and forgive sins, destroy the works of the devil and overpower the darkness and evil through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for us all on Calvary’s Cross and His glorious resurrection from the dead!
Everywhere hunger, fear, pain, sickness, disease and death stalk mankind, but the Great Physician, the Compassionate Christ still has all power today because, “He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for out iniquities, chastised for our peace and with His stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53: 4, 5)
JESUS: DESIRE OF ALL NATIONS!
The Scripture text from Haggai is prophetic in several ways. It speaks about a time when the people of God had taken Him for granted. They were building their own houses but neglecting the House of the Lord.
He warns about a shaking that seems a lot like what is happening today: “For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land.” We don’t have far to look at the recent hurricanes, typhoons, tsunamis, earthquakes, flooding, droughts, famines and epidemics that have plagued our planet!
God warns: “Consider your ways. Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earns wages, earns wages to put in a bag with holes.” (Haggai 1:5, 6)
The prophet conveys God’s delight in those who further His Kingdom, and that He is with those who put His WORK ahead of their own. He inserts these prophetic truths: “And I will shake all nations, and the DESIRE of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts.”
The world was at its WORST when God sent His Son, born in a stable in Bethlehem. Jesus was born in a subject province governed by pagan Romans and the Jews were ruled by uncaring, legalistic, hypocritical Religious leaders.
“But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion upon them because, they fainted, and were scattered abroad like sheep without a shepherd.” (Matt.9: 36)
He went to them and sought them out and healed their hurt, calmed their fears and filled them with His holy love, and faith! The Holy Record states: “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 disease among the people.”(Matt.9: 35)
To the woman taken in adultery, Jesus said: “Neither do I condemn thee. Go and sin no more.” (John 8:7-1); To the Leper, He said, “I will: be thou clean.” (Matt.8:1-3); To the blind beggar He said, “Go thy way; Thy faith hath made thee whole.” (Mark 10:52); To the man with the withered arm He said, “Stretch forth thine hand.” (Mark 3:5); To the woman who had suffered with an issue of blood for twelve years He said, “Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.” (Mark 5:34); To a father of a twelve year old daughter who had died, Jesus said, “Be not afraid, only believe.” (Mark 5:36); And to the girl He said, “Damsel, I say unto thee, Arise.”(Mark 5:41); To an insane man filled with many demons, Jesus said, “Go home to thy friends and tell them what great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee,” (Mark 5:19); To the paralyzed man borne by four, Jesus said: “Arise, take up thy bed and go unto thine house.” (Matt.9: 6).
Our world today is falling deeper into chaos. Talk about all the nations shaking, with the economic systems of this world in a shambles, Iran on the cusp of acquiring nuclear capabilities, the Islamic terrorist threat growing, Israel surrounded by serious enemies and the Western Nations forsaking the Gospel of Christ!
GENTILES LONGED FOR A TEACHER!
According to J.W. Monser, in An Encyclopedia on the Evidences, p.527, PLATO (B.C.428-346) has SOCRATES saying, “We must of necessity wait, till someone from Him who cares for us, shall come and instruct us how we ought to behave towards the gods and man.” Again, “This lawgiver must be more than man that He may teach us things man cannot know by his own nature.”
The Magi who made the 35-day-journey covering the 1,100 miles from Persia to Jerusalem searching for Him who has been born ‘king of the Jews’, is PROOF of their desire for spiritual help! They were astronomers, philosophersthat God could speak to in His desire to let the world know that His salvation plan to crush Satan’s head was finally operational.
“Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Where is He that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the east, and are come to worship Him.” (Matt.2: 1, 2)
Jesus stated: “For I tell you that many prophets and kings have DESIRED to see those things which ye see and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.”
Dr. Wayne Jackson says: “Some translators argue that the word ‘desire’ (heb. hemdat) is used of persons in the O.T. – both in its singular and plural forms. Saul was described as the desire of Israel (1 Sam. 9:20) and Daniel was called “greatly beloved” (plural in 9:23; 10:11, 19). Dr. Alden notes that such irregularities are common in O.T. Hebrew. (The Expositors Bible Commentary, Vol.7, p. 586)
ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH!
The Almighty said to Abraham: “And I will make thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shall be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee and curse them that curseth thee: and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” (Gen.12: 2, 3)
This is a marvelous prophecy which points to JESUS CHRIST, Who is the fulfillment. St. Paul writes: “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ… for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye ABRAHAM’S SEED, and heirs according to the promise.” (Gal.3: 27-29)
In his Pentecostal message St. Peter declared: “Ye are the children of the prophets and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, and in THY SEED shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. Unto you first God having raised up His SON JESUS, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.” (Acts 3: 25, 26)
Jesus is the ‘DESIRE of ALL NATIONS’ and He alone is willing, able and desirous of blessing all the families of the earth! He ALONE has the power and ability because, “He tasted death for every man.” (Heb.2: 9).
He suffered, bled and died for the entire world: “For God so loved the WORLD that He gave His Only begotten Son that WHOSOEVER believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world but that world through Him might be saved.” (John 3: 16, 17)
Again the Holy Bible states: “He came unto His Own and His Own received Him not, but as many as received Him, to THEM gave He power to become the SONS of God, even to them that believe on His name.” (John 1:11, 12)
Theologian Herbert Wolf in his Commentary on Haggai and Malachi states, “Ultimately it applies to the gathering of the treasures of the nations after the Second Coming of Christ and to “the glory and honour of the nations”, brought into the New Jerusalem” (Rev.21: 26) but it can also refer to that “treasure” or “desire of the nations”, “The Messenger of the Covenant in Whom ye Delight.” (Mal.3:1)
Here is the rub: Even though the world has by and large rejected Jesus Christ as the DESIRE of all Nations, yet one day they will know Him as King of kings and Lord of lords! And the latter House will be greater because He will be worshipped and adored as Lord, Saviour and God! (Zechariah 14: 16)
The Magi came from Persia to worship Him, the Greeks came to see Him, the Samaritans received Him, the Romans crucified Him, the Jews rejected Him, Simon of Cyrene carried His cross and believers from around the world worship Him, the One who was dead but still lives!
One final word: "JESUS – His Name is above all other names; His Reign is above all other rulers; His Lordship is above all other authorities; His Words are above all other voices; His Truth is above all other opinions; His Love is above all other affections." – Author Unknown
May the Lord open every heart & life to receive Him! Amen.

Jan Ernst Gabrielsen from Norway is the Grandfather of
the Pentecostal Movement in Sudan. As a Missionary in
Kenya in the 1970s, Jan befriended Colonial Benjamin who
had fled the brutal Islamic State because of their abusive
Sharia Law. In 1976 Jan and Benjamin entered Sudan and
started a house church. In 1996 I interviewed Jan Ernst on
Norwegian TV in Oslo. He stated: "Colonial Benjamin has
contacted me after 20 years & informed me that there are
now 276 Pentecostal Churches in SUDAN of which he is
the Father and I am the Grandfather." In 2006 Jan and I
joined with Pentecostals from the North and South for the
first time in history in Juba where the Constitution of the
Pentecostal Movement was drafted. I delivered the first
and the last messages, as well as video taped the entire
proceedings and wrote the history of the Conference.
There are now well over 400 churches in Sudan. Jan and I
also broke through in Nyala, Darfur in 2006 & 2007. The
Norwegians led the way much like Leif Eriksson and the
Vikings who discovered America in about 1,000 A.D.

BEGINNING OF ARGENTINE
REVIVAL MAY, 1978
Max Solbrekken's May, 1978 Cordova Argentina Crusade
was the start of the great Revivals that followed after. The
nation was under Military rule. All evangelism had stopped.
Louis Palau had left and Omar Cabrara was forced to leave
as his name had been found on a REBEL hit List. He made
plans with Pastor Max for a Crusade in Paraguay, but God
showed the Canadian Crusader that Omar Cabrara should
return to Argentina. After much urging, Omar changed his
mind & the rest is history. The Crusade began with 6,000
people in the Football Park and ended with 48,000. It was
a Sovereign Move of God. Thousands were converted, the
City was stirred and outstanding miracles of healing took
place in every service. Many Roman Catholics attended!
Dr. Omar & Marfa Cabrera were
used of God to awaken Argentina!
On the closing day of the Crusade - May 15, 1978 - Dr.
Omar Cabrera announced that we would be returning in
two weeks & 17,000 attended his first meeting. Within 18
months, his Congregation numbered 9,000 members and
hundreds of pastors working with them across Argentina.
In 1980 Omar Cabrara and Max Solbrekken conducted
a crusade in Sante Fe where God performed a staggering
miracle on a little boy born without urethers. After seeing
x-rays of the new urethers, the Roman Catholic Radio
Station and Weekly Magazine interviewed Omar & Marfa
Cabrera together with Max Solbrekken and Julio Diaz's
parents, saying, "This Miracle of God too great to keep
only among the Evangelicals. Everyone must know what
God has done."
MAX SOLBREKKEN SAYS, "THE TURNING POINT
FOR ARGENTINA CAME WHEN OMAR AND I MET
WITH THE FOUR ARMY COLONIALS WHO RULED
THE CORDOVA DISTRICT.!!!
"During the Crusade I asked Omar to contact the leaders
of the Junta. They agreed to meet with us and after being
introduced, I brought greetings from Canada and then I
preached for about 15 to 20 minutes about God and the
Devil, Heaven and Hell, Sin and Salvation, the Blood of
Christ, the Cross and the Empty tomb. They were almost
sweating bullets, and that is what I wanted! The Leading
Colonial said, "What is it you want from us?" I answered,
"STOP PERSECUTING THE PENTECOSTALS & THE
EVANGELICALS. Stop Persecuting OMAR CABRARA
& DR VACCARRO!" He said, 'OK. What else?" I said,
"Get down on your knees and REPENT." They looked
shocked! OMAR burst into a big laugh. I smiled & they
relaxed. Then I said, "I would like to pray for you and
families." They answered, "Yes, please do!" I prayed
God's blessings upon them in Jesus' precious Name!

EVANGELICALS & THE PENTECOSTALS STOPPED
IMMEDIATELY AND THE REVIVAL CONTINUED!

Rev. Max Solbrekken and His Grace Monsignor
Michael Gunzi Archbishop of the Roman Catholic
Church of Malta on Dec.6, 1973. The Canadian
Evangelist - at the advice of Prime Minister Dom
Mintoff - was invited to the Archbishop's
After sharing the Word of God for about 20
minutes and answering the Archbishop's
questions under the anointing of the Holy Spirit,
he warmly extended his hand and said,"I wish
you the best success in your ministry of
preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the
people of Malta."
And so ended 1,000 years of Roman Catholic
Rule over all the people of Malta. The law had
been put in place by the Knights of Malta 1000
years earlier to keep out the Muslims. Pastor
Max Solbrekken had the privilege of leading
the Chief of Police for Valletta, Enoch Tonna, to
Christ as well as to pray for the Head Pastor of
the large Roman Catholic Cathedral in Valletta,
Enoch Tonna later became Head of Malta's National Police
Force. The Pastor & the Policeman stayed in contact.

of Roman Catholic Cathedral, Valletta, Malta, 1973
After our visit to His Grace Archbishop Michael Gunzi
everything changed. We were able to carry a weekly
religious column in the Maltese Times and the 1000
J. W's were no longer jailed for spreading their
teachings. And the Gospel was freely proclaimed by
Protestants and Evangelicals. Hallelujah!
Dr. Max Solbrekken states: "As much
as I hate the false, spurious teachings of the
Muslims, Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons,
whom I helped to get into that country, God
in His great mercy used His humble servant
to open the 'Door of Malta' for the true Gospel
to enter the hearts and minds of that people.
NOW there are many Evangelical Churches
in Malta. And the Blood of JESUS CHRIST
of NAZARETH that was shed for all the world
PREVAILS against all the HOSTS OF HELL.
Amen.!!! To God be all the praise, honour and
Glory! He, "doeth all things well." - Mark 7: 37
A Special Thank You to Rev. David Wulff,
Chaplain to Norwegian Sailors, for making
the application for me to preach - which
was rejected - and for speaking to Prime
Minister Dom Mintoff which opened the door
for my invitation to meet the Archbishop. Oh
how great is our God.! Praise Him!

Fanny (Francis) Jane Crosby 1820-1915 wrote this
beautiful song, 'All the way My Savior Leads Me'
All the way my Savior leads me;
What have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt His tender mercy,
Who thro' life has been my guide?
Heav'nly peace divinest comfort,
Here by faith in Him to dwell!
For I know whate'er befall me,
Jesus doeth all things well;
For I know whate'er befall me,
Jesus doeth all things well;
JESUS DOES ALL THINGS WELL!
