Great Miracles of Divine Healing and Deliverance are happening through this Christ-centered Ministry. On January 24, 2015 God performed a gracious Miracle of healing on Gary Donahue (see testimony below) and our Lord and Saviour is still working His miracles upon those who put their total trust in Him.To God be all the glory in Jesus' Holy & Precious Name! - Pastor Max Solbrekken

                                         Says Garry Donahue, Biggar, SK
Last June (2014) I was loading some cattle to ship to Market. I was coaxing a quiet cow down the shoot when an unthinking worker shoved an electric prod into her ribs and she went wild, jumping  into me and knocking me down. 

My shoulders were injured severely with terrible pains. Arthritis set into my shoulders and back. I've had a lot of excruciating pain and have been unable to lift my hands higher than my shoulders.

 I am a welder and have been unable do my work without a lot of pain. I have had prayer several times since then without any relief. 

On Saturday January 24, Pastor Max Solbrekken prayed
for me and my shoulders became normal at once. The pains are completely gone and I have had total mobility in my shoulders since then. I say, Hallelujah to Jesus and Praise to our Lord!
                                 says Rodrique Caisse, Saskatoon, SK.

Today was the first time I was able to say 'Thank You' to Pastor Max Solbrekken for His prayers to God in Jesus' name on my behalf. I am so glad for 'Christ the Healer Gospel Church' in Saskatoon. - Jan.31, 2015

The seizures that I endured for three years were severe and they were frightening. I was on medication but the meds didn’t help one bit.  And my seizures were getting worse. 

They happened nearly every night while I was sleeping and I would wake up wondering where I was. My Dad told me that once while we stood taking with my brother, I suddenly ran through the large Front Room window. 

I often wondered how much of this I could handle and what would happen to me. Where would I end up and how could I ever get a job? Would I have no future whatever?

Then I heard about Christ the Healer Gospel Church on 136 Ave F S in Saskatoon. I asked God to heal me. As Pastor Max Solbrekken laid his hands on my head and prayed in the name of Jesus Christ a great peace came over me and I have not had a seizure since. I now have a good job and I am serving Jesus Christ with all my heart. Praise the Lord!

Satan Kills! Jesus Saves! Randall Netmaker was healed miraculously by God's power and is no longer a diabetic. After years of having this serious disease Randall is free, thanks to Jesus Christ!. He will be singing his heart out for Jesus Christ our healer! I will be giving the awesome report of the notable Miracles Christ performed in Honolulu, Vancouver, Edmonton & New Sarepta! - Pastor Max Solbrekken

Randall Netmaker Gospel Singer
                                        By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.    
    “For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the Gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the CROSS OF CHRIST should be made of none effect. For the PREACHING OF THE CROSS is to them that perish foolishness, but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. But we preach CHRIST CRUCIFIED, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness, but unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.” (1 Cor. 1: 17, 18, 23, 24)
     For many years, the Christian Church has presented the claims of Jesus Christ to be able to save lost souls, heal the sick and liberate the suffering and wounded granting Eternal Life, on the basis of His shed blood, vicarious death and glorious resurrection.
      With gusto and great fervour, saints of God have preached the Word and written songs, proclaiming the power of the shed blood of Jesus Christ to break every fetter and to set the captives free. Hallelujah!
     In his book, ‘The Cruciality of the Cross’ Dr. Henry Mabie writes: “The Greek word used by Paul in 1 Cor.1: 18, is Logos...” not preaching but “the subject matter of preaching; with the very essence of that which was to be preached; with the Logos of the Cross, which constituted a rationale, it’s Divine reason, a reason which…he declares to be the wisdom of God. This ‘Logos of the Cross’ is conceived by Paul to be the key which unlocks the riddle of the universe, solves all mysteries and reconciles all things.”
                        A SUBJECT MATTER SO MAGNANIMOUS!
     The sacrificial death of the incarnated (God in human flesh) Son of God to redeem the world, is a subject matter so powerful, so magnanimous and so incomprehensible that mortal man can only stand in holy awe at its immensity, enormity and grandiose love that we are left speechless!
     The blood of Jesus Christ which He freely gave for sinful, rebellious and hell-bound, guilty sinners, purges our consciences from all guilt, delivers us from the power of sin and liberates us from Satan and his evil kingdom, for time and eternity!
      And as Dr. Henry Mabie states: “This Logos of the Cross is conceived by Paul to be the key which unlocks the riddle of the universe, solves all mysteries and reconciles all things.”
    I agree one hundred per cent with that analysis and commentary - which is the greatest I have ever heard - but still doesn’t even begin to cover the eternal consequences of the incarnation, passion, death and resurrection of Christ Jesus our Lord, Creator and God!
      St. Paul came closer when He wrote: “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.” (1 Cor.2: 9)
      How helpless we are without His indwelling presence and yet how strong when He is moving within us by His awesome power. How amazing that the God of Heaven and Ruler of the Universe would deign to identify Himself with mere earthlings and to dwell within us.
     It has been said that truth is stranger than fiction. It is difficult to understand why so many have been blinded by Satan and coerced into rejecting Jesus Christ, Who gives Eternal Life freely to all who humble themselves and receive Him as Lord and Saviour!
     That men and women endowed with a free will would choose to follow a murderous Liar, manipulating Deceiver and the despicable Enemy of God down the broad road that leads to perdition and Hell is an enigma of the very worst kind! How is it possible that thinking individuals made in the image of God, could become so deceived?
                           GOD'S ABSOLUTE INTEGRITY!
      And yet, Almighty God in His absolute integrity and fairness and knowing the wickedness and cunning of the defrocked and fallen Lucifer, still created our first parents Adam and Eve and placed them in Eden's Garden with a free will to follow good and reject evil!
    After their disastrous fall by committing high treason against their Creator and God, the love of our Heavenly Father drove them out of Eden so they would not partake of the fruit on the Tree of Life and live forever in their sins!
     In His great mercy, God made a way of escape from their sins and the snare of the Devil, through the sacrificial system which pointed to Christ. In passing judgement on the serpent as an accomplice of Satan, He laid out His great plan of salvation which had been hidden in His heart from before the foundation of the world.
     He said: "I will put enmity between thee and the woman and between thy seed and her SEED (Christ); It shall bruise (crush) thy head, and thou bruise His heel." (Gen 3:15)
       This is what we call in theology, the 'Law of the First Mention'! The first mention is of the Deliverer Whom God would send to crush Satan's head. The second is the Virgin Birth of the Deliverer. He is called the SEED of the woman! God's only begotten Son would be incarnated (God in human flesh) to emancipate Adam's fallen race through the sacrifice of Himself, to meet the demands of divine justice in payment for our sins!
    How could anyone with a natural mind, if not inspired by the Holy Spirit, be able to digest these amazing truths? The Bible clearly states: “But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” (1 Cor.2: 14)
      There is a vast difference between the carnal and the spiritual man. And because we have not allowed the Liar any place in us, we can truthfully and boldly declare that God is omnipotent (all powerful), omniscient (all knowing), omnipresent (everywhere present at once).
    We know that God's Word is incomprehensible (unknowable) and that Jesus Christ is TRUE GOD from eternity and TRUE MAN through His incarnation (born of a virgin) and the Only Saviour of the world.
      St. Paul was not a believer in Jesus Christ at first. He was a blatant blasphemer, injurious and a hater of believers in Christ. That all changed when he met JESUS on the Damascus Road. (Acts 9, 22 and 26).
      He stated: "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new. And all things are of God, Who hath RECONCILED us to Himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation.
    "That is, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are AMBASSADORS for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us; we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God." (2 Cor.5:17-20)
      Again he stated: "But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory." (1 Cor. 2: 7, 8)
      Here is the real reason so many reject the Saviour Jesus Christ: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
      "For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He that believeth on Him is not condemned; but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
     "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone that doeth evil hates the light that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." (John 3: 16-21)
                    THE CASE FOR CHRIST OUR LORD!
       Loudly and triumphantly, I make the case for Christ! There is no-one like Him. He is the One and Only Saviour of the world. He is the Great Physician Who heals us from all our sorrows, problems, sins and diseases! He baptizes believers with the Holy Spirit and Fire!
      The Bible says: "He came unto His own and His own received Him not. But as many as received, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name." (John 1: 11, 12)
      Believe on Him today and He will give you the power to become His ADOPTED CHILD: "Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in Heavenly places in Christ.
      "According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love:
      "Having predestinated us unto the ADOPTION of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us ACCEPTED in the Beloved." (Eph.1:2-11)
      "But this Man, because He continues ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. Wherefore He is able also to SAVE them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever lives to make intercession for them." (Heb. 7: 25)
       JESUS OUR SUBSTITUTE: "For such an high priest became us, Who is Holy, Harmless, Undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher hat the heavens. Who needs not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for His own sins, and then for the people: for this He did once, when He offered up Himself." (/Heb.7: 26, 27)
       JESUS' ENDLESS LIFE: "For that after the similitude of Melchisedec there arises another priest, Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an ENDLESS LIFE. For He testifies, Thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchisedec." (Heb. 7: 15-17)
     Jesus Christ declared: "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead.
    "And He laid His right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not, I am the First and the Last: I am He that Lives and was dead; and behold, I AM ALIVE forevermore, Amen; and have the keys of Hell and of Death." (Rev. 1: 8, 17, 18)
    JESUS IS MY LIFE: "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine, no more can ye, except ye abide in Me.  I am the Vine, ye are the branches:
    "He that abides in Me and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: For without Me, ye can do NOTHING. If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you." (John 15: 4-7)
     Again our Lord promised: "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. At that day ye shall know that I am in My Father, and YE in ME, and I in YOU. He that hath My commandments and keeps them, he it is that loves me: and he that loves Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him and will manifest Myself to him.
     "Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love Me, he will keep My words: and My Father will love him and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him." (John 14: 18-20, 21, 23).
    "I am the LIVING BREAD which came down from Heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
     "Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eats My flesh and drinks my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is meat indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.
     "He that eats My flesh and drinks My blood, dwells in ME and I in him. As the Living Father hath sent Me, and I live by the Father; so he that eats Me shall live by Me. This is the BREAD which came down from Heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna and are dead: he that eats of this bread shall live forever." (John 6: 51-58)
     After stating that to receive Eternal Life we must eat His flesh and drink His blood, Jesus clearly emphasized that He was speaking about the spiritual experience of becoming ONE with Him and the Heavenly Father, through the Holy Spirit.
      He was NOT advocating eating His actual physical flesh and drinking His physical blood. It was an analogy of the nearness, closeness and oneness of Jesus Christ to His Children through the new Birth!
     It is drawing strength and life from Him Who purchased our Redemption by His atoning work through His intense suffering and vicarious death on the cross.
    "He was wounded for our transgressions. He was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement for our peace was upon Him and with His STRIPES we are healed." (Is. 53: 4.5)
     Our Lord Jesus said: "It is the spirit that quickens (makes life); the FLESH profits NOTHING; the words that I speak into you, they are spirit and they are life." (John 6: 63)
     This is the great Mystery that was revealed to St. Paul through the Holy Spirit, namely, Christ entering into the very innermost being of believers at the time of conversion to Jesus Christ!
     He said: "Even the Mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to His saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this Mystery among the Gentiles; which is CHRIST IN YOU, the Hope of Glory." (Col.1: 26, 27)
      When we received Christ as personal Saviour, He took up His abode in our hearts and lives! By Jesus Christ living within us through the blessed Holy Spirit we automatically receive His life within our being! He gives us His life because He is the Creator and the Life giver! We draw His life into ourselves by becoming a part of Him, as He enters our lives with His Holy Spirit!
      Through our union with Jesus Christ we are protected from the power of Darkness which is seeking to envelope the world. The Blood of Jesus Christ is the only solvent that is able to wash sinners from the filth, stench and corruption - both spiritually and physically - that is Satan's signature plan and strategy!  Christ's Victory is Satan's Defeat and our Liberty!
     St. Paul states: "If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are Above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things Above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your LIFE IS HID with CHRIST IN GOD. When Christ WHO IS OUR LIFE shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in Glory.
     "Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence and covetousness, which is idolatry. For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience."
      Jesus spoke of the 'PROMISE OF THE FATHER' to His disciples before His departure to Heaven. He was referring to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon His band of followers, who would comprise the Church (called out ones) which He would build.
      The HOLY BIBLE says: "In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto Me and drink. He that believeth on Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
     "But this He spake of the Spirit, which they that believe on Him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because Jesus was not yet glorified." (John 7:37-39)
     What an honour to be filled with God, the Blessed Holy Spirit! To be called by the Holy Spirit, saved by the precious BLOOD of Jesus Christ and filled with that Holy Spirit of Promise and be led by His nail scarred hand!
    The great Apostle to the Gentiles stated: "For in Him (Christ) we live, and move, and have our being..." (Acts 17: 28)
     Jesus said: "As the Father hath loved Me, so have I loved you: continue ye in My love If ye keep y commandments, ye shall ABIDE IN MY LOVE; even as I have kept My Father's commandments, and abide in His love.
     "These things have I spoken unto you, that My JOY may remain in you, and that your JOY might be full. This is My commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you." (John 15: 9-12).
     St. Paul testified: "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but CHRIST LIVETH IN ME: and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself for me." (Gal.2: 20)
     St John declared: "Ye are of God little children, and have overcome them (evil spirits): because Greater is He that is IN YOU, than he that is in the world." (1 John 4: 4). Greater is Jesus Christ Who purchased our forgiveness, peace, joy, healing and abundant life through His death on the Cross.
     He ABIDES within us together with the blessed Holy Spirit, Who leads us and gives us the wisdom, strength and power of the Risen Jesus Christ to show forth the love, mercy and grace of God to a lost and dying world!
    Christ's Victory is Satan's Defeat and our Liberty! Amen.

  YEARS AGO, I PREDICTED THIS WOULD HAPPEN!           I believe that there will be lawsuits against politicians who have passed laws placing Children in Harm's Way and Clergy who have promoted and facilitated this perversion, aiding and abetting this unnatural and harmful activity. In the Final Analysis, they will stand before God's Judgement Bar to give an account of their deeds.            - Pastor Max Solbrekken

‘Quartet of Truth’: Adult children of gay parents testify against same-sex ‘marriage’ at 5th Circuit

As the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals considers whether to strike down laws in three states banning same-sex “marriage,” four adult children of homosexual parents have filed court briefings arguing that government-sanctioned homosexual unions could lead to disaster for thousands of kids.
Katy Faust, Dawn Stefanowicz, B.N. Klein, and Robert Oscar Lopez, who were all raised by homosexual parents, each submitted briefs to the 5th Circuit opposing the legalization of same-sex “marriage.”  Recounting childhood memories of households made deeply dysfunctional by their parents’ sexual appetites and the radical subculture that went along with their “gay” identities, all four argued that redefining marriage to include homosexual couples will likely lead to the exploitation and abuse of countless children for political and personal gain.
“I grew up with a parent and her partner[s] in an atmosphere in which gay ideology was used as a tool of repression, retribution and abuse,” wrote B.N. Klein of her lesbian mother and her series of live-in lovers. “I have seen that children in gay households often become props to be publically [sic] displayed to prove that gay families are just like heterosexual ones.”
“While I do not believe all gays would be de facto bad parents, I know that the gay community has never in my lifetime put children first as anything other than a piece of property, a past mistake or a political tool to be dressed up and taken out as part of a dog-and-pony show to impress the well-meaning,” Klein wrote.  She added that as a child of a lesbian mother, she was pressured to pay “constant homage and attention” to her mother’s gay identity, taught that “some Jews and most Christians were stupid and hated gays and were violent,” and told that homosexuals were “much more creative and artistic because they were not repressed and were naturally more ‘feeling.’” 
While Klein classified her upbringing as abusive, Robert Oscar Lopez told the court that his own childhood upbringing by his mother and her longtime partner represented the “best possible conditions for a child raised by a same-sex couple.”  Even so, Lopez testified that the lack of a father figure in his life, combined with the influence of the radical gay culture in which he was raised, gave rise to a devastating confusion about his own sexuality and ultimately led to his becoming a homosexual prostitute in his teen years in order to fulfill his craving for acceptance and love from older men.
“Had I been formally studied by same-sex parenting ‘experts’ in 1985, I would have confirmed their rosiest estimations of LGBT family life,” Lopez wrote.  “[But b]ehind these fa├žades of a happy ‘outcome’ lay many problems.”
“I experienced a great deal of sexual confusion,” Lopez wrote.  “I had an inexplicable compulsion to have sex with older males … and wanted to have sex with older men who were my father’s age, though at the time I could scarcely understand what I was doing.”
“The money I received for sex certainly helped me financially because it allowed me certain spending money beyond what I earned with my teenage jobs at a pizzeria and in my mother’s [psychiatric] clinic. But the money was not as impactful as the fact that I needed to feel loved and wanted by an older male figure, even if for only as short as a half hour.”
Lopez said that he has spoken to dozens of other adult children of homosexuals, and that many of them have similar stories of pain and damage inflicted by the absence of a biological parent and the unwanted “step-parent” type relationship demanded by their homosexual parents’ lovers.  Lopez included testimonies from nine of them in his brief, but said there were many more who were afraid to speak out for fear that the homosexual lobby would target them for harassment like they have Lopez himself. 
“Children raised by same-sex couples face a gauntlet if they break the silence about the ‘no disadvantages’ consensus,” Lopez wrote, after recounting how homosexual activists harassed his employers and spread lies about him on the internet after he first came forward about his own childhood experiences as the son of a lesbian. “In such a climate, I must conclude that placing children in same-sex couples’ homes is dangerous, because they have no space or latitude to express negative feelings about losing a mom or dad, and in fact they have much to fear if they do.”
Katy Faust also testified that children of homosexuals are intimidated into silence by gay activists who threaten them with public shaming, job interference, and worse for daring to speak out against same-sex “marriage.”
“Some adult children with gay parents shy away from making their thoughts about marriage public because we do not want to jeopardize our relationships with those to whom our hearts are tethered,” Faust wrote. “Unfortunately, many gay-marriage lobbyists have made gay marriage the sole badge of loyalty to our LGBT family and friends.”
“The label of bigot or hater has become very powerful and effective tools to silence those of us who choose not to endorse the marriage platform of many gay lobbyists,” Faust continued. “For much of my adult life I was content to keep my opinions on the subject of marriage to myself. I was (and still am) sickened by the accusation that I was bigoted and anti-gay for my belief in natural marriage.”
“For many years those devices kept me quiet,” admitted Faust.  “I didn’t seek a venue where I could share my views. But I have come to realize that my silence, and the silence of others, has allowed for the conversation to be dominated by those who claim that only animus, ignorance, or indoctrination could lead one to oppose ‘marriage equality.’”
Faust said that her outspokenness against same-sex “marriage” stems from her belief that every child has a right to a relationship with his or her mother and father.
“When we institutionalize same-sex marriage … we move from permitting citizens the freedom to live as they choose, to promoting same-sex headed households,” Faust wrote.  “Now we are normalizing a family structure where a child will always be deprived daily of one gender influence and the relationship with at least one natural parent. Our cultural narrative becomes one that, in essence, tells children that they have no right to the natural family structure or their biological parents, but that children simply exist for the satisfaction of adult desires.”

I can walk without my walker, no pain. I can breathe. I am stronger. A Miracle happened to me on December 28, 2014. I had been suffering from arthritis for about 20 years! - Naty Selga, Honolulu, Hawaii

                         By Nativad Selga, Kaneohe, HI
         Naty Selga, sister Norma, Pastor Max & Donna Solbrekken
         at Full Gospel Temple Honolulu, HI on January 11, 2015.                  
         A miracle happened to me on December 28, 2014. I had been suffering from arthritis for about 20 years. The arthritis was becoming severe to the point that I used a walker with wheels for the last few years!
     My husband brought me back and forth to the Emergency room at the Hospital the pain is so excruciating. I was always sedated by medications and surgery was recommended by the doctors. I didn't want surgery. I had physical therapy. Doctors tried epidural  injections and I was almost paralyzed by the injection.
    My diagnosis was multiple damaged discs from an old fracture in my back (spine). I also suffered from osteoporosis and sciatica with severe pains going to my right leg.
    I had not been attending activities and events in the church. I also had asthma and chronic bronchitis. I could not get up to go to church. I struggled to use the walker to go to the kitchen!
    I thank and praise God that Pastor Max Solbrekken prayed for me and the miracle happened. The power of God came down upon me and I was able to immediately walk fast without the walker. Now  am able to walk Pain - Free and I feel stronger.
    Pastor Solbrekken is an instrument of God to pray for the sick. Thank you Pastor Solbrekken. God touched me and HEALED me!   - Naty G.Selga

By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
    "That at that time ye were without Christ...having No Hope and Without Hope in the world." (Eph 2: 12) The picture painted by St. Paul of the state of unregenerate man is by no means pretty!
      Without Christ! Having No Hope! And Without God in the world! I can't think of anything worse than being alienated from God's love and grace, to be shut out from His presence!
      Whatever the situation, there is HOPE if a person has contact with God! Even when troubles, tragedies and great difficulties arise there is Someone to go to with those problems.
      Without that spiritual resource, it is no wonder people feel hopeless. It is sad that folks struggle with the battles of life alone, when they could take advantage of the mercy, grace and healing power of God!
     Many have hit the bottom spiritually, physically, economically, as well as domestically. And they have given up! Here is good advice for us all: Hold in there - tomorrow will be a better day. The trouble will soon blow over, and time has a way of healing everything!
     It is true, unprecedented problems face mankind daily in the struggle for survival, fulfillment, peace of mind and happiness! Vast numbers of homes are breaking up due to economic pressures, alcohol involvement, unhappiness and family feuding!
     Again, there are many who are facing life and death battles with cancer, heart disease, sugar diabetes, multiple sclerosis or some other illness. Fear of what the future may bring preoccupies the minds of many elderly, especially those who are incapacitated and frail!
     Our young people are inundated with temptations that are so devastating, destructive and engulfing, we never even dreamed of in our youth! Economically, times are tough and getting tougher. Soon there will be no free lunches. There is no doubt about that!
     However, there isn't any use crying over spilt milk because if you do, you will only hurt yourself. An old adage says, "If you laugh the world laughs with you, but if you cry, you cry alone."
      I go along with Dr. Don Gossett, who said, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going!" Positive thinker, Dr. Robert Schuller, wrote a very successful book called, 'Tough Times Never Last, But Tough People Always Do'.
     In it, he tells of the hard times endured by his family, and that faith in God  brought  them through. Bedrock faith in God's Word will always do the job and bring the much needed healing!
    And although many young people have been destroyed  by Satan's wily temptations and deception, there are great numbers who strong, straight and a credit to God, parents and country!
      The hymn writer penned the words:
Faith in God can move a mighty mountain
Faith in God can calm a troubled sea
Faith will make a desert like a fountain
And faith will bring the victory
So have faith in God, have faith in God
Yes, my friend, have faith in God
       Dr. Oral Roberts said, "You can't go under for going over." And, I believe that! There is no earthly or unearthly power that can destroy us if we have our hope and trust in Christ, and our faith anchored in God!
      St. Paul wrote: "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor death, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Rom.8: 38, 39)
      The great Jewish crusader wrote of the persecutions he was enduring gladly for Christ: "But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God." (Acts 20: 24)
     Again, St. Paul wrote: "In nothing being terrified of your adversary." (Phil.1:28) and, "There are many open doors but there are many adversaries." (1 Cor.16:9)
     The Christian life is not a picnic. There are real trials and real battles with the world, the flesh and the devil. There is, however, complete victory for the total man, in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. He is our righteousness, life and hope. There is none other!
     My hope is built on nothing less
     Than Jesus' blood and righteousness
      I dare not trust the sweetest frame
      But wholly lean on Jesus' name
      On Christ the Solid Rock I stand
      All other ground is sinking sand!
      Only a very foolish and short-sighted person would ignore the invitation of our Lord and reject the great mercy of God. May we all place our trust in Him. He said: "Come unto Me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give ye rest." (Matt. 11: 28) Amen.

Dear Friend in Christ: 

Greetings in the precious Name of Jesus Christ! When we meditate on that Majestic Name, our hearts are over - awed by its grandeur and magnificence. All the power of Heaven and earth are at the disposal of dedicated, consecrated children of God who know their standing in Christ. (Phil.2: 5-11)

Demons tremble in fear and obedience when His NAME is spoken with authority and faith! Sickness and disease wither and tumours die when Believers in Christ administer healing and deliverance to sick, dying and tormented souls in JESUS’ Holy and Matchless Name! (Mark 16: 15- 18)

The Crucified and Resurrected Jesus Christ declared: “All power is given unto Me in Heaven and in earth.” (Matt.28: 18); “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from Heaven. Behold I give unto you POWER to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over ALL the power of the enemy: and NOTHING shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10: 18, 19)

Our Saviour Jesus Christ stated: “Verily I say unto you, if ye have faith, and DOUBT NOT ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and cast into the sea; it shall be done. And ALL THINGS, whatsoever ye shall ask in Prayer, believing, ye shall Receive.” (Matt.21: 21,22)

The Sovereign Lord said: “ASK and is shall be given you; SEEK and ye shall find; KNOCK and it shall be opened unto you: For every-one that asks RECEIVES and he that seeks FINDS and to him that knocks it shall be OPENED.” (Matt.7: 7, 8)

The GOOD NEWS is that Jesus Christ is AVAILABLE and can be reached at a moment's notice. He said: "Lo, I am with you alway until the end of the age," (Matt. 28: 20). The word alway is a measure of distance while always is a measure of time. He will go with us the entire distance to the finish line of our lives!

Jesus has not changed. He has not amended His Word nor lost His LOVE and COMPASSION for us. He will not FAIL us nor forsake us because it is impossible for Him to fail, lie, make a mistake or forget us! How do I know this? He does not change His WILL or His WORD. 

Ask yourself: How could an All-Knowing, All-Powerful, Eternal, Righteous and  Merciful God somehow change His Will, Purpose and Redemptive Plan for mankind, after having met the Demands of Divine Justice in payment for our sins? 

There is no way that Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, "slain from before the foundations of the world", Who was incarnated to suffer, bleed and die to save us from eternal death, would somehow abandon us after having conquered death, hell and the grave! 

Many years ago in the USA, a man risked his life to save a three year old girl from a raging house fire that claimed her parents and siblings. The girl was unscathed but the rescuer's arms were severely burned leaving ugly scars. The town folk discussed what to do with the little girl since she had no relatives.Although the rescuer wanted to adopt her, there was an outcry against it because he was an atheist. 

The court room was crowded as the judge heard the case. Witness after witness testified that the girl's parents were Christians and that it would be a folly for her to be brought up in the home of an atheist.  Finally, the man who had rescued her was called forward. He expressed his desire to adopt the little girl and then he removed his shirt to reveal his scars. The Judge's decision was instant. The man who risked his life to save her should have the right to adopt her. 

On our Day of Judgement, Jesus will declare that we belong to Him by revealing His wounds. The wounds in His hands and feet will be the 'Proof of Purchase', proving that He has purchased us through His vicarious Death on the Cross and His Resurrection from the dead! The Bible says: "For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's." (1 Cor.6: 20)

St. Peter states: "For as much as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation (lifestyle) received by tradition from your fathers. But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot." (1 Cor.1: 15, 16)

When the little girl became a teenager and was taken by her father to an art museum, she spotted a painting of Jesus Christ, after being scourged by Roman soldiers. She asked her father who that was and why he was wounded so terribly. He tried in vain to change the subject but she persisted. 

Finally he told her the story of Jesus, and she wanted to know more. After hearing it all, she rolled up his sleeve and said, "Dad, that's like you!  You we were willing to die for me." He broke into sobs and they both fell to their knees and gave their hearts to Christ! 

On the seventieth anniversary of his ordination a Minister of the Gospel, said: "God can't stop loving us!"

And now may the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Love of God the Father, the Fellowship and Communion of the Holy Spirit be with you until Jesus Comes. Amen. (2 Cor.13: 14)

In His Love and Care,
Max & Donna Solbrekken
