The trumpet of the Lord shall sound and time shall be no more! When He returns, will you be ready to meet the Christ of God, the Creator of all life and the Only Saviour of the world? The Bible says, "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ shall be saved." Call upon Him NOW my friend.!!! - Pastor Max Solbrekken

By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
      Jesus said: “Behold I come quickly and My reward is with Me to give unto every man as His work shall be.” (Rev 22:12). Addressing St. John the Apostle on the Isle of Patmos, our Lord declared that His COMING was imminent. He would RETURN shortly!
     Other translations are: soon, at once and without delay’. Why has not Jesus returned yet? St. Peter answers that question so well: “But, beloved, be  not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
     “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3: 8, 9)
     The TWO REASONS St. Peter gave then are still legitimate today, namely: First, Jesus does not reckon time like we do and  secondly, He is waiting for more precious souls to be saved. He is waiting for you, my friend, will you receive Him as your Lord and Saviour today? If you open your heart to Him, He will receive you as His very own!
     Jesus Christ invites: “Come unto Me all ye who labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” (Matt.11: 28); “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if ant man hear My voice , and open the door, I will come in to Him, and  will sup with him, and He with Me.” (Rev.3: 20).
 It is indeed, a  great honour and a very humbling experience that the Lord in His great mercy saved an unworthy sinner such as I, and that He  chose me to preach the unsearchable, indestructible, imperishable, unrelenting, indispensable, unchanging, irresistible, incomprehensible and eternal Gospel of Jesus Christ!
