               TOUCHING JESUS 
             FOR YOUR MIRACLE     
 An artist's conception of the Biblical account 
 of a very sick woman receiving a miracle from 
God by touching the hem of Jesus'robe
                 The Answer for Troubled,
                  Sick & Oppressed People!
                                 By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
    The Bible says that the devil goes about like a roaring lion seeking whom he can destroy but that we can resist him in the ‘Faith of Jesus’. (1 Peter 5:8) Also in James 4:7 the holy Scriptures say, "Submit yourself unto God, resist the devil and he shall flee from you." 
    Jesus Christ declared that the thief (Satan) came for three reasons; to steal, kill and destroy, but HE had come that “we might have life and it more abundantly.” (John 10:10) 
    Our Lord has given His children power over the Devil; to cast him out and drive him away from us. Satan brings DEATH but Jesus has destroyed his power over believers and has given us power over him. And Jesus brings LIFE!
    The Bible says: "The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God, to the pulling down of strongholds; casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of God." (2 Cor.10: 4,5)

Our weapons are: 
1. The Blood of Jesus!
    “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself took part of the same; that through Death He might Destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the Devil; And Deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.” (Heb. 2: 14, 15)
     “Neither by blood of goats and calves, but by His own BLOOD He entered in once into the Holy Place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh, How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the Eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, PURGE your conscience from dead works to serve the Living God. (Heb. 9: 11-14)
     “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh.” (Heb.10: 19-20).

2. The Word of God!
    “So shall My Word be that goeth forth out of My mouth: it shall not return out of Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” (Is. 55: 11). “He hath sent His Word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.” (Ps. 107: 20)
    “Surely He hath borne our sicknesses (heb. kholee) and carried our sorrows (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 as upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.” (Is. 53: 4,5)
    “For the Word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any twoeged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Heb. 4:12)
     “Then Jesus said unto him, Get thee hence Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God and only Him shalt thou serve. Then the devil Leaveth, and behold, angels came and ministered unto Him.” (Matt. 4: 10,11)

3. The Name of Jesus!
    “And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned.
      “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall thy cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues. They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall  not hurt them; they shall lay their hands upon the sick and they shall recover.” (Mark 16; 15-18)
      “Believe Me that I am in My Father, and the Father in Me; or else believe Me for the very works’ sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he also; and greater works than these shall he do, because I go unto My Father.
     “And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in My Name, I will do it.” (John 14: 10-14)

4. The Blessed Holy Spirit!
    “But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken (give life, heal, strengthen) your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you. (This of course takes in the resurrection of our bodies when Christ returns. (Romans 8: 11-17)
    “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit Himself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. (The Holy Spirit takes a hold of against the infirmity and through the believer prays to the Father)
    And He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” (Rom. 8:26, 27)
     “So shall they fear the Name of the Lord from the west and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” (Is. 59: 19)

5. The Church!
     “And He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets, and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto  a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.
     “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.
     “But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into Him in all thigs. Which is the Head, even Christ. From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth according to the effectual working in the measure of every part maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.” (Eph.4:10-13)

6. The Angels of God!
     “The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them. (Psalms 34: 7); “And again, when He bringeth in the first begotten into world, He saith, Let all the angels of God worship Him. And of the angels He saith, who maketh His angel spirits, and His ministers a flame of fire.  Are not all these ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” (Heb. 1: 7,14)

7. Our Testimony!
     “And they overcame him (Satan) by the BLOOD OF THE LAMB, and the Word of their Testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” (Rev. 12: 11).
      Please agree with me in prayer according to Matthew 18: 19. Read and study all these Scriptures and quote them in your prayers. PEACE be unto you, my friend!
     By the Blood of Jesus Christ and according to the Word of God I charge Satan to immediately LEAVE those who read these words. In Jesus' name, I bind every evil spirit that is tormenting you and command every spirit of infirmity to leave you in Jesus Christ's Holy Name. Amen.
