Fifty years ago I was a very sick 10 year old girl.
The doctors diagnozed me with a hole in my heart.
My Dad brought me to Brother Max Solbrekken's
meeting in Prince Rupert, B.C. I was instantly healed 
and today I am still well. Praise the Lord!

Chapter 1
There is Hope for You
     There are multitudes today who are sick and suffering from some disease or infirmity and they cannot seem to get relief anywhere. Great numbers have seen multiple doctors, clinics and hospitals with little or no results and are discouraged, not knowing which way to turn!
     Some of you reading these lines may have prayed earnestly regarding your need for Divine Healing.  You may have had special prayer in your church by the pastor and the elders, or by an evangelist whom God is using to bring healing to the sick and afflicted.     And still you are not healed, you feel no better and your situation may even be worsening.
    Your faith seems to be at a low ebb and you are tired of life, tired of being sick and tired and defeated. You feel that you may as well throw up your hands in despair as nothing helps, and accept weakness and pain, sickness and despair as your lot and go on the best you can for as long as life may last.
     My dear friend, there is still hope for you! It is not too late for you. It may seem hopeless, but it is not. It may seem useless to think of deliverance, but it is not. As long as there is life in your body and as long as there is a God in Heaven, there is hope. The Bible says, “With men this impossible, but not with God, for with God all things are possible.” (Mark10: 27)
     It may seem impossible to you but with God NOTHING is impossible. Man’s extremity becomes God’s opportunity. When man fails, that is when God will take over for He never fails! When man gives you up, be sure that is when God can step in and bring to pass the miraculous in your life, because nothing is impossible with Him.
      When Almighty God could bring the world into being by His spoken Word, hang the universe on nothing, fling the sun, moon and stars into the far most corner of the night to rotate in perfect harmony - when He could create the unthinkably immense array of heavenly bodies by a few words from His lips – when at the touch of His hand, God created a perfect human being in His own image and breathed into man’s nostrils the breath of life making man a living soul – surely He can heal your sick spirit, soul and body!
    The Great God Who brought back to life the Lord Jesus Christ certainly can quicken your mortal body. When you think of how great and mighty is our God, certainly nothing shall be impossible to Him. The Bible says: “All things are possible to him that believeth.” (Mark 9: 23)
     So the first thing we have established is this, your case is not too difficult for God and there is a good possibility of your healing to come to pass!
     Jesus came to bring life to all. He is the Life Giver. His heart of mercy, love and grace reaches out to fallen man with great compassion. Satan is the direct opposite. He brings only deceit, doubts, fears and death! Our Lord said: “The thief cometh not but for to steal, kill and destroy. I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)
     The Bible states that Satan came to this earth for three reasons: To steal, kill and destroy and Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly! The Devil is a thief, and a murderer (John 8: 44) and came only to do EVIL. He came to rob you of your happiness, joy, peace, health and blessing. He came to harm you and finally destroy you in a hospital, insane asylum or prison.
    The devil is evil, wicked, treacherous and ungodly. He can only do evil. He has no capacity for doing anything good. He could not even if he wanted to, for he is pure evil and the death giver!
     Jesus is totally GOOD. He cannot do evil, for He is the Life giver and Peace bringer. Jesus is the Liberator of Planet Earth and the Sole Saviour of the world! He has overcome death, hades and the grave! Being the Life giver, He came to earth to bring us abundant life here and Eternal Life for evermore!
      Some people have given the devil the credit for healing sick people. This is utterly FALSE, is contrary to God’s Word and accuses Jesus of telling an untruth. We know that Jesus is the Way and the TRUTH and the Life. (John 14: 6). The Word of God is pure, divine and infallible. Jesus stated that you cannot get good fruit from a corrupt tree or corrupt fruit from a good tree and by their fruits ye shall know them. (Matt.7: 18)
     It is against the laws of a thorn tree to bring forth figs, and you cannot get sweet water from a fountain containing bitter water. How could the Devil, who is completely EVIL, bring forth something that is GOOD? Jesus said that the devil is a thief and came to this earth to steal, kill and destroy. We know that Jesus came to this world to seek and to save them that are lost.
    We also know that Jesus came to “put away SIN” through His substitutionary death for us all. And we KNOW that the shed blood of Jesus Christ has redeemed from the curse of the law and from the “power of Satan to the light” of Christ’s Gospel!
                           JESUS CAME TO BRING LIFE!
     Healing and health is life. Sickness and disease brings death! The Bible says that healing is good: “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: Who went about doing GOOD and HEALING all who were OPPRESSED of the Devil, for God was with Him.” (Acts 10:38)
     This proves that all those whom Jesus healed had been oppressed by the devil. Satan had oppressed them with sickness, but Jesus healed them and made them well! It also proves that sickness and disease can be ultimately traced back to Satan and the fall of Adam. It also proves that healing and wellness comes from God. Believe it, my friend, and be well in Jesus’ name. Our Lord Jesus Christ makes you well!     
      There are some things you must do if you are to be healed. Study the accounts in the Bible of people who were healed by our Lord or through the ministry of one of His servants. If you do what they did and believe like they believed, you will undoubtedly receive like they received from the hand of God! God is no respect of persons and is eager to answer our prayers just He did for others: “For there is no respect of persons with God.”  (Romans 2:11)  
      Please note: In 1965, I wrote an excellent little book 'How to Receive Healing from Jesus Christ'. It has been out of print for many years. It is now being reprinted and will be carried in this blog for the next few weeks. It will build your faith in God for salvation, healing and deliverance!   - Pastor Max Solbrekken
