Jesus said: "These SIGNS shall follow them that believe. In My name shall they cast out devils... They shall lay their hands on the sick and they shall recover." (Mark 16: 15-20) - Pastor Max Solbrekken

~ Pastor Max & Bishop Rowlands ~
Only Believers in Jesus Christ, God's Son Who died on the cross for the sins of the world, was buried and rose again from the dead on the third day, are invited to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Those who have received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit have been commissioned to heal the sick and cast out evil spirits from those who are possessed, in Jesus' Name!

A fifteen-year-old boy in Port au Prince Haiti who had
been insane for 5 years and led by a rope to the Crusade 
in the Du Valier Stadium  during the Max Solbrekken
Gospel Crusade in 1972 was instantly delivered from
evil spirits of insanity and his mind returned to him as
God's Servant prayed a PRAYER of DELIVERANCE
for more than 30,000 people present at the Crusade. His
father wouldn't bring him saying, "We have taken him
to the Catholic bishop and to the Voodoo priest. There
 is no hope for my son." His neighbour, who had been in
the Crusade Meeting said, "I will take him. Jesus can 
heal him." When the prayer was offered and the request
made to our Heavenly Father in  Christ's all-powerful
name and the command given for every EVIL SPIRIT 
to depart, the boy looked at the neighbour saying, "Why
are my hands tied?" The neighbour asked, "What is 
your name?" Immediately, he was brought to the 
platform and had his hands untied. He was instantly 
normal. All glory to God in Jesus. Name!
By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
“And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that MIRACLES, then GIFTS of HEALINGS, helps, governments, diversity of TONGUES.” (1 Cor. 12: 28)

In the early 1970s I was preaching the Gospel in Inuvik, NWT and God was doing marvellous things in the meetings. A former Anglican Minister was deeply moved because his wife received a healing. I was invited to their home for lunch and while waiting to be called to the table their sixteen-year-old son came into the house. When he saw me he began to cry and left the room.

His father explained that his son was a backslider and had been deeply convicted by seeing his mother receive a miracle and was desirous that I would also pray for him. He had a short while earlier been involved in a snowmobile accident and was in intense pain in his neck and spinal area. I agreed that we could do so at once and when we prayed, the son was restored into fellowship with our Lord and instantly made well in his body!

As we sat down to lunch, his father asked me: “What is the secret of your success in seeing so many miracles on a regular basis in your Ministry?” I answered: “I didn't know that there was a secret involved in receiving miracles from the hand of God, but if there is one it would have to be three-fold:

1). I believe the Holy Bible is the Word of God, from the beginning to the end – from cover to cover - it is the infallible, inerrant and life-giving Word of the Eternal God!
2). I believe that every time we are gathered together in His Name, Jesus Christ  is present in in our midst; 
3). I have always and will always give Jesus Christ all the honour, praise and glory. He alone is the Great Physician. I preach His Gospel, pray in His name, exercise faith in His Blood and His Word and depend on the power of His Holy Spirit to do the work, and He does! Miracles of Divine Healing are entirely and exclusively the work of God and not of man. Period!
