MY PERSONAL TESTIMONY OF
JESUS CHRIST’S AWESOME POWER!
Pastor Max Solbrekken – January, 2012
My heart is overflowing with gratitude to our Heavenly Father Who so lovingly reached down His Hand of mercy to an undeserving world in sending His Son to redeem us from the clutches of Satan. Jesus’ vicarious death and glorious resurrection purchased our salvation!
The Lord is awesome and “His ways are past finding out”. It is impossible to understand the grace of God and why Jesus would suffer, bleed and die for sinful mankind! Personally, I am amazed to think of what God has accomplished through this Ministry during the past 49 years!
Almost everywhere we meet people who have been saved, healed, filled with the Holy Spirit or called to His service through this Ministry. It brings me to my knees in humility when I think of how God called me into His Holy work, because in my younger years I never envisioned that I would preach the Gospel!
It is true that I was taught by my parents to trust in God as a child and at 17 years of age at SLBI (Lutheran Collegiate Bible Institute) Outlook, SK I went forward to rededicate my life to Christ after a stirring appeal by Rev. Sylvan Johnson, a powerful Lutheran Evangelist. Due to unsaved friends, a desire for worldly pleasure and lack of back-bone, my confession didn’t hold and I drifted away from God for seven years, until God called me again through a miracle.
HIMELF TO OUR FAMILY!
My Dad had suffered for many years with his gall bladder and in March 1956 he entered the hospital for surgery. While there, he heard a voice in the Norwegian tongue instructing him to go home and listen to Oral Roberts on the radio. My Dad’s gall bladder was healed perfectly, as was his heart. And my Dad received the ‘Baptism of the Holy Spirit’, spoke in tongues and prophesied.
Those events surprised me so profoundly that I began experiencing God’s convicting Spirit speaking to me, and for the first time in my life I saw that His Word was still relevant and that He was performing miracles as He had done 2000 years ago!
Little by little, the Holy Spirit drew me to Himself and in June 1957, I surrendered my life to God. Shortly thereafter, I was baptized with the Holy Spirit and fire. And I have not been the same since!
By the grace of God we celebrated my 78th birthday on May 15 th and I can testify that He has kept me in good health and strong in the Spirit! And Donna gets better looking every day! We are so thankful and overwhelmed by the love showered upon us by the many who faithfully support us!
On September 26, 2007 we opened Christ the Healer Gospel Church in
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and on July 3, 2011 we dedicated the House of Prayer Gospel Church on Hiway #623, New Sarepta, , to our Lord Jesus Christ. By His grace alone we have been able to preach His Wonderful Gospel across the world with great success reaching multitudes of unsaved people for Christ’s Kingdom. Alberta
On our way to Kampala Uganda for the Max Solbrekken Gospel Unity Crusade and Minister’s Conference (Sept 13-18), I had the privilege of reaching many thousands across Scandinavia by TV from Vision Norway during our six-day Outreach there. It was such a joy to see so many blessed by our Lord through TV in Norway and Uganda!
THE DOORS ARE WIDE OPEN FOR OUR TV MINISTRY!
I began my Radio Ministry in 1961 and graduated to TV in 1971. For many years, I preached the Gospel in Canada by radio and TV and reached many unconverted souls for Christ. NOW, the doors have swung open for us to do it again. In March, 2012 we will begin to produce our Programs in Alberta and gradually reach out across the Nation. I have asked God to give us many PARTNERS who will gladly help us in this great outreach for Him.
Because we always pay our bills on time, we must have $50,000 for this project within two months. I am asking 50 of my friend to invest $1,000 in this work of winning souls for our Lord and Master Jesus Christ! Some can give more and others less. God has assured me that the ‘HARVEST IS RIPE’ for a genuine old-time REVIVAL in Canada!!!
I humbly ask all my friends to continue praying that He will lead us in His perfect will and richly bless those who will sacrifice in this Holy Project. Please let me hear from you and remember, we are praying for you! May God bless you richly, my friend! Amen.
Your servant for Jesus’ sake,
Pastor Max Solbrekken
