                                  ADAM SCHIFF & NANCY POLOSI 
                            CONTROLLED BY DEMONS?
                                            By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
    Reverend Perry Stone, best selling author believes that Satan has taken over the leadership of the Democrat Party in the USA. He stated recently that "I have never, in any nation of the world ... seen people raised up with demons in them [like] in Washington," 
   You can look at their eyes when they almost start foaming at the mouth," he said. The pastor then took aim at Democratic House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff, claiming that the representative's "eyes get as big as saucers and it looks like he is having a seizure when you bring up [Trump's] name.
     Stone said. "They have demons in them. They're trying to place hexes and curses on President Trump," the religious leader said. "Satan hates this man."
    It is true that Adam Schiff is a 'known liar' and Nancy Pelosi looks like the 'witch at Endor' and Maxine Watters and Whoopi Goldberg are hate-filled gutter snipes against decency! It is also true that Satan hates any leader who puts his trust in God and His righteousness.
                   ANOTHER TAKE ON THIS MATTER!
   God wanted king Ahab removed because of his sins. Ahab had allied with Jehosthaphat  to fight against the king of Syria. A spirit stood before the Lord and said, "I will be a lying spirit in the mouths of all his prophets". And it was so!
   All the prophets except Micaiah, prophesied saying, "Go up, the Lord is with thee." Micaiah stated: "I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd..." King Ahab imprisoned him. "And Micaiah said, If thou return at all in peace, the LORD hath not spoken by me." Even though King Ahab disguised himself, an arrow shot at random struck him. King Ahab was killed at Ramoth Gilead! (2 Chronicles 18: 12-27)
   I believe lying spirits have invaded the Democrat leadership saying: "impeach Trump." The American people are tired of all the hatred and it will be reflected at the Ballot Box. The swamp will be drained! 
   Eight years with Clinton who could have killed Bin Laden at  Kandahar, Afghanistan but refused to avoid collateral damage.  Instead the USA lost 3,000 in New York and thousands more in 18 years of needless wars. Former Community Organizer, Obama called ISIS a JV team under Al Baghdadi who tortured, raped and killed thousands of innocent Christians and others! 

     One of Satan's strategies is to instill HATE into people's minds for their fellowman. Hate reduces people to become the Devil's foot soldiers, and it appears that the new Democrat party and their Fake News Propaganda Department are in Lock stock with 'Old Slew foot. What a sad Commentary, indeed!

                 BUT THE LABOURERS ARE FEW
                                   By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
      "But when He saw the multitudes, He was Moved with Compassion on them because they fainted and were scattered abroad as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith He unto His disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the Harvest, that He will send forth labourers int His harvest." (Matt. 9: 36-38)
    This is an urgent call for PRAYER from the Lord of the Harvest Himself. Jesus Christ, the Greatest Missionary ever to walk on this ‘terra firma’ saw the multitudes are sheep having NO SHEPHERD and He was moved with Compassion toward them and preached the Gospel to them. And He healed the sick and diseased among them.
      There are several lessons we learn from this marvelous account from the Ministry of Jesus. Our  Saviour went to the cities and villages and we should do the same. He didn’t only go where there were large crowds. First, He declared the Good news of the kingdom of God. Second, He healed every sickness and disease among the people.
     Third, He was moved with COMPASSION when He saw the great NEED among  the hurting people. Fourth, He recognized the need for Pastors who would love and minister to them as He did. Fifth, the HARVEST of souls is huge. It is plenteous. There is much to be done. There is work for everyone . Sixth, the LABORERS are few. How sad that so few have a burden to help their fellowman  with such a “great salvation”. There no work shortage in the Kingdom of God. The unemployment rate is exceedingly low and JESUS CHRIST is hiring. And the wages are good!
      Seventh, the real need is for sustained, desperate, sincere and fervent PRAYER to our Father in Heaven. The GREAT NEED is for Labourers. If we will pray, He will call them and send them into His Harvest. We have Jesus’ promise on that and His WORD is true and cannot fail!
      In John’s Gospel we again encounter the powerful MESSAGE of our Lord Jesus Christ about the paramount importance of His Ministry which we have been called to continue in His absence. He stated: “As My Father hath sent Me so send I you.” (John 20:21); “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel…” (Mark 16: 15-20); “The works that I do shall ye do and greater works shall ye do the….because I go unto My Father.” (John 14: 11-14)
     He stated: “Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? Behold I say unto you, Lift up your eyes and Look on the Fields; for they are white already to harvest.”(John 4: 35, 36)
            Only One Life. It Will Soon Be Past; Only What’s Done For Christ Will Last!

HAPPY REMEMBRANCE DAY: Canadians are proud of our Military Successes in WWII. Democrat Presidents are politicians pure and simple and have caused the USA a number of serious security breaches and thousands of lost lives. Hardly a real man among them, mealy mouths and play boys! Look at Kennedy's Bay of Pigs Tragedy, Jimmy Carter's Iran's Terrible Failure, Bill Clinton's bin Laden's cowardly decisions, Barak Obama's stupidity calling the murderous ISIS a JV Team. Look at real men like General Dwight Eisenhower winning WW11, Ronald Reagan's: Gorbachev pull down that Wall, George W. Bush's great strength after Satan's Islamic Terrorist Attack on 9/11 and President Donald J. Trump's turning around the economy, stopping Iran's march toward the nuclear bomb and Standing up for Israel!. Republicans are largely men of courage, principle and prosperity! - Pastor Max Solbrekken

Bill Clinton on Sept. 10, 2001: ‘I could have killed’ bin Laden

Ten hours before the first plane hit the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11, 2001, Bill Clinton allegedly told a group of businessmen in Australia that he had a chance to kill Osama bin Laden, but passed because it would have meant killing hundreds of innocent civilians. That’s according to never-before-released audio of remarks made public by Australian media on Wednesday. 

“I nearly got him. And I could have killed him.”
On September 10, 2001, Clinton was speaking to a group of about 30 businessmen in Melbourne, including Michael Kroger, the former head of the Liberal Party in the Australian state of Victoria. The event was recorded with the former president’s permission, according to Kroger, but the audio never released — until Wednesday night, when Kroger appeared on Sky News with host Paul Murray to unveil it. Kroger said he had forgotten about the recording until last week. 
At the event in Melbourne, which took place not long after the end of Clinton’s term in office, the former president was asked about international terrorism.
“And I’m just saying, you know, if I were Osama bin Laden — he’s very smart guy, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about him — and I nearly got him once,” Clinton is heard saying. “I nearly got him. And I could have killed him, but I would have to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan and kill 300 innocent women and children, and then I would have been no better than him. And so I didn’t do it.”
A spokesperson for the former president did not immediately respond to a request for comment. According to The Washington Post, Clinton was paid $150,000 to speak to J.T. Campbell & Co. Pty. Ltd. in Melbourne that day.
Bin Laden’s presence near Kandahar in the late 1990s is common knowledge, but it appears Clinton has never spoken so candidly in public about the chance to kill him.
According to the 9/11 Commission Report, national security officials decided to forgo a missile strike on the region in December of 1998 out of concerns about collateral damage, including 200 to 300 civilian casualties. Some lower-level officials in the government thought that number was exaggerated and were angry when the Joint Chiefs of Staff advised the president against a strike. 
There were allegedly similar opportunities when bin Laden’s convoy was spotted by U.S. drones, which were unarmed at the time. Fears about collateral damage and the imprecision of cruise missile strikes, which could take hours to hit their target, pushed the U.S. to start arming drones and to step up ground and airstrikes by the Special Forces.
Following the bombing of the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, Clinton pursued bin Laden’s network across several countries with cruise missile strikes in Sudan and Afghanistan. There was also an FBI investigation, CIA activity, and assistance to special Pakistani anti-terror troops, but it would take more than a decade before U.S troops finally killed bin Laden in Pakistan — long after the September 11 attacks.

                               By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
          Prepare to meet thy God! This was the admonition that Prophet Amos thundered out in his day. God’s people had backslid, corrupted themselves and forsaken the true and living way.
They had gone after the strange gods of the heathen, and were worshipping at the altars of pagan idols. They had forgotten how gracious the Lord is and had turned their backs on Him!
AMOS was a prophet who had not corrupted himself as others had done. God had a vessel He could use - a mouthpiece with which to warn and admonish His people of coming judgment for sin, and forgiveness for those who would repent! God’s message to the people then is the same as now: “Prepare to Meet Thy God”!
One day every living soul will stand before God and give an account of his or her life! The Bible says: “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men.
“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” (2 Cor.6: 10,11,17,18)
In a T.V interview, Billy Graham revealed that during a  bout of illness he thought he was going to die. When he realized that he would meet God - face to face - he began to repent and ask God’s forgiveness for any sins of commission or omission of which he was guilty! He kept saying: “I should have studied more. I should have prayed more!”
Some time ago, Oral Roberts told of a vision he had just received from the Lord. He was walking down a road, when he saw a dark cloud over America and God told him that judgment was going to fall upon that nation. The Lord told him that preachers were not preaching the gospel.
       God wants preachers to get back to the Bible and “preach the gospel!” Oral Roberts then revealed the conviction that gripped him as God made him aware that time was short and that Jesus would soon return! He said: “I tried to remember the last time I preached on the Second Coming of Christ and I couldn’t remember.” He repented and asked God’s forgiveness. The “Man of God’ repeated: ‘Preachers, get the fire of God in your bellies and preach the gospel!
                                      THE BOOK OF LIFE TO BE OPENED!
     “And I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from Whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
     “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books according to their works and death and hell were cast into the lake of fire
     “This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Rev. 20:11-15)   
      The Bible says, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” (Heb. 9:27). The ‘Message of the Prophets’ was always the same. It was two-fold: Man must repent to receive mercy and forgiveness or reject God’s Way and be judged. It was a message of mercy and judgment!
       IT IS THE SAME TODAY! God has not changed, but many of ‘today’s preachers’ have compromised and are not preaching the whole truth because of FEAR. They lack the boldness, courage and faith to stand up and tell it like it is! ‘Easy believe-ism’ doesn’t make any room for repentance!
      JOHN WESLEY  - founder of the Methodist Church - whose Ministry is credited with turning England back to God and saving that nation from the same fate as that which befell France in the ungodly, brutal and bloody French Revolution, stated: "I must preach law before I preach grace."
What did he mean? In order for people to realize that they need God's FORGIVENESS, they must be convicted of their sins! And how does that take place? In several ways: God can arbitrarily speak to people by His Holy Spirit in answer to the fervent prayers of relatives or other concerned Christians!
       Usually, however, sinners are convicted through the anointed preaching of God's Word. Millions of people are saved today because of the powerful preaching of anointed Spirit-filled men and women of God, who have refused to compromise their message!
In 1970, Edmonton Transit bus driver, Eric Dykstra and his entire family were converted to Christ because of the dozens of bus seat benches which carried our advertisement with the clear-cut message: ‘Get Right With God!’
In a letter dated May 8, 2002, about five weeks before his death, Eric wrote: "It has been 32 years almost to the day that I accepted the Lord's saving message as preached by you that Wednesday evening at the Edmonton Revival Centre. That was May 6, 1970.
"After you laid your hands on me and my family, the roof of the old theatre didn't split open for angels to descend, but I received a depth of peace in my inner being I had never before experienced. Without realizing it, we stood at the jump-off point of an exciting brand new phase of our lives.
"Our kids all believe in their Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. (One is even an M. Div and pastored for five years). Our grandchildren are taught the Word and the ways of the Lord Creator, at home and at their respective churches. Your faithfulness to God and perseverance in your Ministry has brought wonderful blessings to countless families around the globe!
"I have at times speculated what would have happened if in the late 60s all these messages, 'Get Right With God!' hadn't been scattered throughout the city by way of bus stop benches. Driving my routes and spotting those ads repeatedly gave me opportunity to meditate on their meaning!"
Eric’s last wish was that since I was the one who brought him into the kingdom of God through the ‘message of the cross’, it would be appropriate that I should close the last chapter of his life by officiating at his funeral!
In the packed Highlands Baptist Church, his family members related the story of his wonderful conversion and his godly life thereafter. And by the grace of God, I had another privilege of presenting the claims of Christ once more!
                              DR. OSWALD SMITH SPEAKS OUT!
In his book 'The Fire of God' (1948), the man that Billy Graham called, "one of the world's greatest Missionary Statesmen" wrote:  "In my study of revival and evangelism I have discovered that those most mightily used of God always majored on five subjects.
“These five subjects inevitably produced conviction. First, sin and salvation, then heaven and hell, finally judgment! You see, a great many messages must necessarily be given on sin for sin to be exposed if there is to be genuine conviction!"
       Dr. Oswald Smith states: "When I was converted in the year 1906 in the great Torrey-Alexander campaign which was held in Massey Hall, Toronto, I noticed, as I walked along the streets or through the stores, or rode in the street cars, thousands of little white cards, one inch wide and six inches long. On both sides these four words were printed in bright red type, "Get Right With God."
"It made no difference which way the card fell, the message was always there! As a result, thousands were convicted. So many tens of thousands of these little white cards had been distributed that it was impossible to get away from them. Everybody saw them. They were lying about on every side and those four little words preached a sermon that could never be forgotten."
I remember hearing Oral Roberts - while in his prime - speaking on the sin of compromising the truth. In his anointed message, the man who won ten million souls to God and brought the healing power of God to our generation thundered out these words: "I hate compromisers!"
I’m sure that Oral Roberts meant that he hated the SIN of COMPROMISE rather than those who compromise, in the same way as Jesus stated: “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans (an heretical cult), which thing I hate.” (Rev.2: 4)
Some say: “I don’t preach from the Old Testament prophets”, others reject the epistles of St. Paul or the letters of St. John because of the strong disciplinary messages they bring! They only preach the saving grace of Jesus Christ, but have forgotten that our Lord Himself warned strongly against sin and sin’s corrupting and damning influence!
Here is what He said: “So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.” (Rev.2: 6,15,16).
“Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed to idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am He that searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.” (Rev. 2: 20 -23).
                                 PREPARE TO MEET THY GOD!
Jude, the servant of the Lord Jesus Christ and brother of James writes: “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that you should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

     “For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before ordained unto this condemnation, ungodly men, TURNING THE GRACE OF GOD INTO LASCIVIOUSNESS, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward DESTROYED THEM WHICH BELIEVED NOT. And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, HE HATH RESERVED IN EVERLASTING CHAINS OF DARKNESS unto the judgment of the great day.” (Jude 3-6).
    And MICAH prophesied against the backsliding preachers, who had been bought off and corrupted by worldly minded and sinful people around them, which caused them to prophesy only what the people wanted to hear: “But truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord and of judgment and might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression and to Israel his sin”. (Micah 3:8)
God is very merciful and will forgive all who come to Him in humility, desiring forgiveness and salvation (John 6:37; 3:16), but He also is a God of judgment and justice!
The Bible says, “I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments”. (Ex. 20:5-6)
The Bible says: “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he soweth to his flesh, shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit real life everlasting.” (Gal.6: 7, 8)   
Remember my friend, you reap what you sow and be sure your sin will find you out (Jonah 1:7). And don’t forget “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Heb. 10:31). Sin must be paid for, if it isn’t repented of (turned from), and “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”. (Rom. 6:23)
We are living in a day when preachers have given in to 'political correctness' and the 'seeker sensitive' philosophy, so that there is no longer any conviction of sin! It's easy to get swayed by great crowds who applaud a "God loves you" message, with no demand for a new lifestyle! But, the Bible says: "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things become new." (2 Cor.5:17).
IN MY CRUSADES AROUND THE WORLD, I have noticed that multitudes delight in repeating the sinner's prayer and receiving physical healing, but only a small segment desire to make Jesus their Lord and forsake their idols and leave their pagan beliefs. If a preacher, therefore, isn't clear on God's hatred for sin and idolatry, he leaves them in a very precarious position!
The Evangelist goes away with pictures of the great crowds, but the missionaries and pastors have a difficult time, to make disciples out of them, unless the messages they heard were empowered with the conviction of the Holy Spirit, causing genuine repentance and the ‘fear of the Lord’!
                                 JESUS WARNED PREACHERS!
Our Lord Jesus Christ emphasized: "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves." (Matt. 23:15).
He said: "All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me: and him that cometh to Me I will in wise cast out." (John 6: 37).  He also stated: "... but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." (Luke 3: 13).
I remember preaching in Wetaskiwin, Alberta in 1962. The pastor of the Full Gospel Church was a man of faith and a strong advocate of the ‘eternal security’ doctrine! He was also a friend!
Donna and I stayed overnight in the manse and while having a snack with them, he was eager to debate the merits of that teaching. Being a guest in their home, I sought to side-step a verbal debate. He was a gentleman and declared that there would be no hard feelings, if I disagreed with him! He stated that Judas had been “a devil from the beginning” and was not a believer, and therefore could not have fallen from grace!
I quoted the Bible: “For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry.” (Acts 1:17); “…That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.” (Acts 1:24, 25).
I also shared the Scripture: “And after the sop, Satan entered into him.” (John 13:27). He countered that the Bible says: “Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil.” (John 6: 70). Then, I asked him: “Can a devil cast out a devil?” He answered, “Certainly not!” I concurred that our Lord Jesus Christ stated, that it is impossible for the devil to cast out a devil or he would make an end of himself! (Mark 3: 22-26)
                           THEN, I DROPPED THIS BOMBSHELL!
“And He called unto Him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits: And they went out, and preached that men should repent. And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.” (Mark 6: 7, 12,13)         
Was Judas one of the twelve apostles to whom Jesus gave the power to cast out devils and heal the sick? Yes, He was! The Bible says: “And when He had called unto Him his twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of disease.
“Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: The first, Simon…and Andrew his brother…and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.” (Matt.10: 1, 7,8)
That pastor then turned to me and said: “You are right!” He clearly indicated that his teaching was spurious! I asked him point blank: “What are you going to do about it?” He stated that he did not know! I wondered if he would begin preaching the truth! Sadly, some time later I heard that he had started a new church in Calgary and was preaching: ‘Ultimate Reconciliation & Restoration of all Things’- which is diametrically opposed to the Holy Scriptures:  Everyone - including the devil - will be saved and restored!
    During a Mission in Norway a number of years ago, I was watching the National news and saw an interview that made my heart sick. A leading Swedish Pentecostal pastor - in whose former church I had preached - was being interviewed by the News Media. He stated that he no longer believed in the existence of Hell!
He was asked: “What about Adolf Hitler? What would be done with him?” His answer was: “He might have to walk barefoot on a rocky road for some kilometres, to atone for his sins”! The same demon that convinced Adam and Eve that God didn’t mean what He said, had apparently convinced that preacher that he knew more than God about Hell! What was the devil’s lie? It was the damnable teaching of Ultimate Reconciliation & Restoration of All Things’!
     That pastor didn’t change his doctrine instantly. He had been listening to the wrong voice for a considerable time, before it overtook him completely!
I am saddened, when I hear that a preacher has suddenly opted for a doctrine which negates a certain portion of Holy Scripture, in changing the laws and structure used by the Almighty in His great plan of salvation! The immediate effect of tampering with God’s Word, makes the “Cross of Christ of no effect”, because the wisdom of man – which is foolishness to God – has usurped God’s profound and perfect wisdom!
     If a ‘man of God’ changes his message to please the world, flesh or the devil, that is a sure sign that he is heading in the wrong direction! It is true that God has given us the ‘ministry of reconciliation’, but there are no short cuts! God makes certain demands on all of us, and the first is that “we fear and love God”, as anyone who has studied Martin Luther’s Catechism would have learned at a young age!
As the Word of God reaches sinful man, conviction grips his heart and repentance (godly sorrow for sin) births within him a holy reverence for God! As that sinner cries out to Almighty God for mercy and forgiveness in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, there is an explosion of Heavenly love. The Holy Spirit and the Word join together in a holy union and Christ is formed within him!
     And as the blood of Jesus is applied to that seeking soul, the joy and peace that only God can give fills his spirit, soul and mind! Hallelujah!
     St. Paul warned: "And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
      “Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof." (Rom. 13: 11-14)
"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that everyone may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Knowing therefore the terror (wrath) of God, we persuade men..." (2 Cor. 5:10-11)
The great Apostle admonished: "I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, Who shall judge the quick (living) and dead at His appearing and His kingdom. Preach the Word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine." (2 Tim. 4: 1-2)
                                MY MESSAGE TO BISHOP ÅRFLOT!
 While in Norway a number of years ago, I read about an interview a newspaper journalist had with the leading bishop of Norway’s Lutheran State Church, regarding ordaining homosexual priests into the Ministry!
 I was shocked to learn of his perverted view. He stated: “I cannot find any clear direction in the Bible about homosexuality!In my interview on TV, I was asked to comment on his position.
I said: “Bishop Årflot, if you need new glasses, I will gladly buy you a pair of glasses. If you need a Bible, I will buy you a Bible. If you need theological training, I will pay your fare to Canada and all your expenses at a Pentecostal Bible College, so that you will know what the Bible teaches.”
He didn’t accept my offer. I didn’t hear from him! Too bad! I am wearied and disgusted by ‘men of the cloth’ who blatantly disregard the Word of God to preach their own warped and confused theories, philosophies and sickening views!
How dare they cherry-pick which part of God’s Word that they will believe and which part they will disregard and throw out? Without doubt, they are apostates and cultists!
You may be able to fool your husband, wife, friends or even the preacher, but you cannot fool God. He knows all about you, and if you reject Him as your Saviour, He will be your Judge on that day. (Matt. 25:31-46; Rev. 20: 10–15).
Listen to the words of invitation given by our blessed Lord and Redeemer, Jesus Christ: “Come unto Me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”. (Matt. 11:28)  
Do not turn a deaf ear to His great offer of Salvation and blessing, but believe on the Lord Jesus Christ today, my friend! Receive Him into your heart by faith, repent and turn away from your sins, and you will receive the gift of Eternal Life. Do not delay, but call out to the Lord for mercy now!
Here is His personal promise to us all: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).   Amen. 
Please return to the Lord, repent of all sins and backsliding, and He will receive you, my friend. He forgive and restore all who call upon His Name in sincerity and faith! Please write me a letter and I will be so glad to pray for You!   - [email protected]

                     Max & Donna Solbrekken workers together for Christ!
                                God Hath Set in the  Church
                  Miracles, Gifts of Healings 
                                               By Pastor Max Solbrekken, DD.
   The Bible says: “And God hath set some in the Church first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of  healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.” (1 Cor. 12: 28). 
    According to God's Word, Spiritual Gifts like miracles, healings and tongues belong in the Christian Church. As long as there is a Church, there will be miracles! Since God has placed His gifts in the Church, no one has the right to remove them! If there are no miracles in our churches, it should cause us to seek God for His presence and power to do His work more perfectly!
     Jesus said, These signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues. They shall take up serpents (St. Paul in Malta); and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them (some preachers in Soviet prisons); they shall lay their hands on the sick and they shall recover. And they went forth and preached every where, the Lord working with them with Signs following.” i (Mark 16:15-20)

                          CRUSADE AT ALBERTA COLLEGE 1962
     Our first crusade in Edmonton was held in July 1962. We were still living in Prince George, B.C. and employed by McCormicks Ltd. I was broadcasting on CFCW Radio from Camrose so was able to publicize the crusade at Alberta College. 
    Pastor Billy Leggette, an accomplished violinist and able song leader, joined me in the Meeting. Since we had no contact with local churches, I was determined to test the ‘waters of evangelism’ and to trust God totally!
     Many people attended and wonderful healing miracles happened, 95 people answered the altar calls and on the final service nearly 700 people were in attendance! Two interesting things happened:
     A man who claimed to be a hypnotist accused me of hypnotizing the people. I countered by saying, I believed that hypnotists were using Satan’s power in their nefarious craft. When I asked permission to lay my hands on his head and pray, he declined and immediately left. 
     Due to my upbringing in the Lutheran Church and my studies of the false teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, like St. Peter being a pope, papal infallibility, Mariolatry, transubstantiation, and purgatory, I expounded on that as well. 
    One evening, 10 very upset young men from St. Joseph’s Seminary attended. They warned our head usher, that if I said anything derogatory about the Roman Catholic Church they were going cause a confrontation.
     I was not, however, informed about that threat. As usual, Billy Leggette with his shock of white hair, walked onto the platform carrying his violin. When I followed him  onto the platform, I heard the voice of God, saying: “Give the pope a rest tonight, son.” As I knelt to pray, I said, “Yes, Lord.”  

                              GOD SHOWED HIS GREAT LOVE!
   That evening as I preached on the Cross and Christ’s sacrifice for the whole world, the altar filled up with seeking souls wanting to meet with Jesus in repentance and faith through the blood of the everlasting covenant. 
    Seven of the ten seminarians were among those at the altar. Later, they asked if I would meet with them privately. They told me how wonderful it was to hear the gospel and how they were moved by the Holy Spirit. 
    One seminarian said that I didn’t say anything derogatory about their church. I replied that I always seek to obey the Holy Spirit! The next evening, I was told about the reason the young men had come to the meeting, and again rejoiced for the leading of God! 
    That crusade which we conducted during my holidays proved that we were ready to launch out in full time Ministry for Jesus! And it led to our first Tent Crusade on Tower Road and Kingsway in Edmonton two years later! Our three week 1964 Tent Crusade was backed by 14 churches and stirred many for Christ in that City!
    My first crusade after resigning from McCormicks was in Prince George where we had lived for about six years. It was held at the Prince George Pentecostal Tabernacle on Sixth Avenue where we were attending.  Since we were founding members of Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church and I had been their first deacon, and because I was so well known in the Business community, we had a record number of visitors and first-time attendees at the ten-day Revival.  
   Rev. Arthur Townsend, the distinguished author and pastor of the church wrote a very positive and encouraging report of that meeting!
                        THREE WEEK REVIVAL IN LANGLEY, B.C.
      My next crusade was held at the Langley Pentecostal Church which lasted for three weeks. Rev. John Erhardt was a very spiritual pastor and a genuine ‘man of God’ who longed for revival. Our meetings had broken through among the Nazarenes who received the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and Fire. The first person to be filled was Marge Hill and more followed!  
      Marge's husband Joe was an engineer on the CNR and a wonderful caring husband and father to his children. He was not, however,  interested in coming to the crusade as he was not born again. She asked me to pray for Joe and invited him to the meetings, but he refused. 
   One Sunday morning I noticed Joe sitting beside her and while making the altar, Marge was signaling me that he was there. I made a call for people who needed a miracle in their body and Joe and Marge joined others at the altar. I  moved toward  them and Marge introduced me to Joe. I asked if he wanted to receive Christ as his Saviour but he declined.
    They explained that Joe had been scheduled for surgery at a later date but suffered an attack that morning and were on their way to Emergency where the doctors were waiting for him. Marge had urged him to stop by the church and have me pray for him. He said that he was in terrible pain and would like me to offer a payer for him.           
                               YOUV'E JUST GOT SAVED, JOE!
     I immediately laid me hands upon him and called out to God in Jesus' Name for a miracle. All of a sudden, Joe shouted, “The pains are gone! The pains are gone! I am healed!” I said, “Joe, lift up your hands and say, Thank You Jesus. Thank You Jesus!”  He was filled with joy as he thanked the Lord. I said, “Joe, say, 'Come into my heart Lord Jesus' and he did. I gave him a big hug and said, “Joe, you just got saved!”  He smiled and said, “It sure feels good. I thank the Lord!”
     Joe Hill canceled the operation.  He became a strong vibrant Christian, together with Marge and their children. Hallelujah! Again, we have seen how God's miracle power in healing the sick, is an open door for sinners to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour!
      At that time, my son Ken who was 3 ½ years old, was with me. We were staying in the attic of the church. Each evening when I was  through preaching, I would go down to the altar and lay my hands upon the new converts as the knelt in prayer. And Ken would follow behind me doing the same. Before going upstairs, I would lay my hands on Ken and ask God to bless him. Then, I would pick him up and carry him into our little attic room on the second floor.
      One night just before going to bed, Ken said, “Daddy, you didn't pray for me tonight.” I saw how serious he was, so I said, “Ken would you like to ask Jesus to come into your heart?”  He said, “Yes.” Then, he and I knelt beside the bed in that little old attic and he gave his heart to the Lord! And that prayer held. He became an exemplary man with a powerful testimony for Jesus Christ and a strong Church leader and preacher. And today Ken is married to Lena and have three children and seven grandchildren!
                             1964: THREE TENT CRUSADES!
     Early in 1964 we acquired a large canvas Army Tent that had been used earlier by several Gospel Ministers. It had three 45 ft. long telephone poles holding up the structure. Brother Casperson, a godly Norwegian fisherman living in New Westminster, B.C. gave us the $2,000 to buy the tent, trailer  and truck. 
     Ken and I picked up the unit and drove across the Pattullo Bridge, exiting onto Scott Road heading to White Rock. Climbing that hill, pulling a heavy load was the first trial for the old 3-ton tractor. It was an exciting time for Ken, who was only five at the time! Thomas B. Nash, who had been the interior decorator for C.N.R. Hotels, painted these powerful words on the old Trailer: Solbrekken Revivals: Bible Days Are Here Again! Salvation: Divine Healing: Holy Ghost!
      Our first Crusade was in Surrey, B.C. My good friends, Rev. Don and Joyce Gossett sponsored that crusade. Joyce Gossett was our organist and led the music and singing. Since Don Gossett and I were both on Radio Kari it was well announced, and many people came to meet with God. 
     There was, however, the case of a youth with his arm wrapped with surgical cloth, saying that it was broken. I cautioned him about approaching God in honesty and faith. At that moment, he and his friend bolted in fear, leaving behind many feet of surgical cloth. 
      Rev. Don Gossett wrote, “People are still talking about the tent meetings and the great things that God did during those two memorable weeks. Brother Solbrekken’s preaching about holiness, judgment and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ brought great conviction.  And his ministry under the anointing of the Holy Ghost has challenged and stirred my soul.”

                        Max Solbrekken A Radical for Jesus!
                                      By Dr. Don Gossett, 1992
    When I think of my friend, Max Solbrekken, words come to my mind; integrity, honour, anointing, zeal, sincerity, uncompromising! It was in 1962 I met Max and his family at Prince George, British Columbia where the Solbrekkens lived at that time.  I was immediately impressed by the deep heart hunger of this man for the power of God.  
    The next year he moved to White Rock, B.C. where we became fast friends, sharing together many ministry opportunities as well as rich personal fellowship.
    Through these more than 30 years, our friendship has never been marred by personal differences or any form of strife.  That's exceptional in this world of communication breakdowns, between even the saints.
     I have ministered in the nations of the world where Brother Max has been.  Pastors and leaders all over the world speak so highly of him and the effectiveness of his ministry.
      His radiant smile has warmed the hearts of the coldest peoples of this world.  His sparkling Norwegian eyes have penetrated the hardest of sinners.  
      Max is well known in Hell as a fearless, courageous preacher of the Word of God that pulls down the strongholds of the wicked one wherever the Lord sends Max.
     Yes, there are a few words that come to my mind when I consider my friend Brother Max Solbrekken....A radical for Jesus.  
     A man ready to die as a martyr.  A world overcomer through his faith in God.  A remarkable family man. Brother Max, you are loved by millions in India, Africa and the Philippines.

                                   SHELLY BEAR HEALED
                                 FROM PERTH’S DISEASE!
     Shelly Bear states: “Twenty years ago, Jesus gave me a miracle – a brand new life! He healed me from incurable Perth’s Disease.” The Cry of His Coming 1998 Magazine carried this great testimony: 
     When I was ten years old (1998) my grandfather Marlo Kenny came to take me to the Max Solbrekken Revival Crusade in the Corona Motor Hotel, Yorkton. Because my left hip bone was disintegrated due to Perth’s – bones turn to chalk – I could not walk. My left leg was 1 ½ inches too short.    They had given me special crutches and were outfitting me with a permanent wheelchair. My grandfather carried me to the car and when we arrived in Yorkton he carried me down the steps into the large ballroom at the Corona Motor Hotel.
   When Pastor Max asked for people who needed a miracle, my grandfather carried me up to the ‘Man of God’! When he prayed for me all the severe pains were gone immediately.
    I could walk, run, jump and do anything a normal 10-year-old girl does! And I didn’t need the special orthopedic shoes had to wear. I had spent many weeks and months in the hospital – in traction – since I was seven.
                         MY DOCTOR REJOICED WITH ME!
      We went back to my doctor and he verified the miracle. Excitedly, Dr. Kim said, “Look at these two x-rays. Here’s an old one that shows you have total deterioration in your hip bone and here is the one I took today that shows a normal hip.”
      When I told him what happened, he rejoiced with me and marked my chart, “HEALED BY FAITH”! Then he spent a long time asking my father Andy Farkis about the miracle in my body!
      During my High school years I excelled in all sports, playing softball and ice hockey and winning trophies and first place honours across Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia!  
      Even today at 30, I still play on an ice hockey team and a softball team.  I have three children and am expecting number four soon. I thank God for His miracle in my body, which happened 20 years ago. And I am still perfectly well today. All glory to Jesus!”

                            CHRIST OUR SUBSTITUE ON THE CROSS!
      The Old Testament prophet Isaias made it clear that when the Messiah arrives, He will liberate the human race from the power of Satan and destroy his ability to oppress, steal and kill those who reject him and his evil agenda.
       The Bible states: "Surely He hath borne our sicknesses (heb. choli) and carried our pains (heb. makob): yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted, but He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and with our stripes we are healed.
"All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to His own way:  and the Lord hath laid upon Him the iniquity of us all." (Is.53: 4-6);   
      "When even was come, they brought unto Him many that were possessed with devils: and He cast out the spirits with His Word, and healed all who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Eaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses."  (Matt. 7: 16, 17). And St. Peter verified Isaiah's prophecy!
     "Who His own Self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that, we being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes you are healed." (1 Peter 2: 24). Amen
