Max Solbrekken Preaches in the World’s Northernmost City! 
(From Cry of His Coming Magazine Sept. 1968)
By Pastor Rolf Janoy, Filadelfia Tabernacle, Hammerfest, Norway
       It has been a great pleasure for us in North Norway to get a visit from Canadian Norwegian Missionary - Evangelist Max Solbrekken. From all over Norway he received invitations for meetings and crusades, but God moved upon our brother to take a trip up here to our part of the country.
     The people here are very open for a full-gospel ministry, so it was a hungry congregation who crowded in night after night. They heard a clear and pure Gospel with Deliverance for body, soul and spirit and the meetings were blessed I a very special way.
    Our part of Norway is called Finmark and it was in Alta and Hammerfest that Solbrekken was preaching.God was wonderfully near and many received power for healing of their bodies. It was thrilling to see people come running and crying when the altar call was given. Old men who had lived a life of SIN came forth trembling to receive Christ as their Saviour. Even though it was a short visit up here, I believe it had a great impact for God’s Kingdom.
   God used Brother Solbrekken both in and out of the Church. Many accepted Salvation in their home when Brother Max and I visited them. Telephone calls and letters asked for meetings all over North Norway, but that was not possible at this time, since Crusades were waiting for him in other parts of the world. We are sure that Brother Solbrekken has a great work to do here at the TOP of the world.
   Rev. Karl Kykkerud in Alta said the meetings had a good influence in the area, and Alma Halse, a well- known minister in North Norway said that even a greater Revival would break out if only Brother Solbrekken would come back again!
NOTE: In our final service in Hammerfest, God showed me two Mormon missionaries and at the end of the service they bowed their knees as I prayed for them. m.s.

            Max in the World's Northermost town, Hammerfest Norway, 1968 
    Many Were Shaken by God’s Word
             North Norway Pentecostal Conference, 1968
                Says Pastor Edwin Gabrielsen, interpreter
  NARVIK had the opportunity to be the city chosen for the large Pentecostal Summer Conference in North Norway from July 29 to August 4 this year. 
  North Norway is the land of the midnight sun; however, because of cloudy and rainy weather the sun, which never sets during the summertime, was not even seen during the daylight.
    Even though it was cloudy and rainy and dark outside, the meetings at the conference were full of joy, gladness, power, blessing and light, as the SON of God’s grace shone from a clear Heaven bringing healing under His wings. And this was a healing of a double sense as many were helped in their soul as well as their body.
      God used Max Solbrekken, the main speaker of the Conference, for rich blessing for both the inner and the outer man. Night after night many came forward to accept Christ. This seemed to be very natural after the strong and anointed declaration of God’s Word that seemed to grip the hearts of the listeners. Many were shaken to their very foundation as Solbrekken with great power spoke against the unrighteousness of our times and called the sins by their proper names.
    It is impossible to give a full account of the many who accepted Christ, but to give you a better understanding of the impact of this convention let me give you an example. The church building became far too small and so the large Folkets Hus Auditorium was rented. This large Auditorium is owned and operated by worldly people and the caretaker was also an unsaved man. He had suffered from a severe migraine headache for 16 years and had to use 200 pain killing tablets every month. As he watched Brother Solbrekken pray for the sick and God perform miracles he realized he also could be healed.
                HE AND HIS WIFE TO CHRIST!
    As Brother Solbrekken prayed for him, he was instantly healed and in the evening service brought his wife to the meeting and the both came forward on the invitation and accepted the Lord as their personal Saviour. They were both so overcome with joy that they stood with tears streaming down their faces, with hands upraised praising God.
     Many of the Ministers were strengthened, stirred and challenged to go forth in the power of the Holy Spirit to do a greater work for God, and when the Moderator of the Conference gave his farewell thanks to Brother Solbrekken, he said that the ministers had certainly learned much from him and that they felt the answer to keep the congregations clean was to preach a strong Holiness message as the Evangelist had done.
     In the last service Brother Solbrekken asked all the Ministers to form two lines in which the sick and afflicted to pass, then the Ministers all, two at a time, laid their hands on the sick and prayed the prayer of faith for their deliverance. It was a glorious meeting, never to be forgotten.
     As Brother Solbrekken’s interpreter in the North Norway Pentecostal Conference, I also had the opportunity to witness the miracles of God in the great crusade in Stavanger in the month of June as well. Night after night the auditorium of Zion was overflowing. At this crusade also there were many who witnessed healing. Many scores streamed forward to the altars to be saved and many were filled with the Holy Ghost and joined the church.
     This great Miracle crusade was also a new experience for many in Stavanger and a great joy filled our hearts as Pastor Kulsus, all the elders and the great crowds of people were 100% united with Brother Solbrekken, and as God brought the blessing. All over Norway, the doors are open for Max Solbrekken and we are praying and hoping that he will soon come back again as we are in a real need of such a servant of the Lord again and again!

                                   Mary Halversen filled with joy and love for God!

                           Jesus Christ Makes You Whole
                                        Rise up and Walk!
 Reported by O.J. Larring, Oslo, Norway. Taken from Cry of His Coming, Sept. 1968
    Mary Halversen who lives on Grua Street in Hadeland, Norway had been an invalid for many years. Four years ago, she had to have an operation on her right hip because her hip socket was worn out and she could not walk any longer. Her left hip socket was in the same condition. She declined, however, to have it operated on because of all the extra pain, misery and suffering from the first operation. She decided she would wait for divine deliverance and a miracle.
.     It was with mixed feelings that I allowed the doctor to operate on my right hip four years ago. My right hip socket was at the time so worn out that I could not walk any longer, so I took the operation. By inserting an artificial socket, I was able to move my leg a little, but never be able to walk normally. Even to do any walking at all, a crutch became my constant companion, together with the companions of pain and suffering. I cannot describe the painfulness of those years, much of my sleep went from me during the night-time. It was especially during those times, that I called upon the name of the Lord and laid before Him my request for healing. At the throne of Mercy.
       I had prayed much and read my Bible and I am sure that it was God that gave me the inward feeling that one day I would be healed. I could no longer do my housework, and had to have help at all times. I had always been an avid reader of Korsets Seier and was thrilled to read about the miracles that began to happen in Bergen and other cities under the ministry of Brother Max Solbrekken.
     This gave me much great boldness to pray more, because I knew that if God was healing people in other parts of Norway, surely He would heal me, because He is no respecter of persons. On the 27th of June of this year some of my friends and came to ask me to accompany them to the large Filadadelfia Tabernacle in Oslo to hear Missionary Evangelist Max Solbrekken. I was grateful for the invitation and accepted.
     When I came into the Auditorium and heard the songs that were sung and the powerful message of deliverance that was preached it was almost as though a voice said to me, “Jesus Christ makes you whole, stand up and walk.”  To explain how I felt at that moment is impossible, because it was that voice that had been encouraging me for these many years that was speaking to me now.
     Oh, I thank God for the message that I was able to hear that night and when Brother Solbrekken was through preaching and had given the altar call, he asked for those who wee sick and had faith for healing to come forth to receive the power of the Gospel in the healing of their bodies.  There were many who came for prayer and be healed and finally I stood before Brother Solbrekken. God’s servant laid his hands upon me and prayed in the mighty name of Jesus and prayed for my healing – he then took the crutches away from me and said, Jesus Christ makes you whole, rise and walk.”
     Upon hearing that command, it became as natural for me to walk as to eat each day. I felt no current or strange feeling go through me, but faith filled my heart and before I knew it, all the pain was gone and I was walking down the aisle a healed woman. The crutch that had been my constant companion for all these years was left behind me in the church and now I can again do my own housework for  myself and my family.
    My friends and many of my unsaved loved ones have received my testimony with joy and now must believe because they see, and because of what God has done in my life. I have been a Christian for
many years and can remember T.B. Barratt’s first time in meetings which he conducted in my home city.
      It seems to me that it is longer now between the times and we are able to listen to faith’s message about God’s miracles and wonders in the earth. I would like to say to the preachers and to the ministers in God’s Kingdom – preach about God’s power in healing because the Ancient of Days is still alive and He is still as powerful as ever.”
   Mrs. Mary Halversen is going about everywhere now in her neighbourhood, a walking miracle, telling all her neighbours and friends about what Jesus had done for her. O.J.L.

  U.S. General Dwight Eisenhower

Benjamin Netanyahu states: 

General Eisenhower warned us. It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

He did this because he said in words to this effect: 'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened'
Two Demon-filled Jew Haters & Murderers: Adolf Hitler & Jerusalem's Grand Mufti confer about killing Jews and winning the war. Thank God, the Allied Forces crushed Hitler, and Hell's plans were all defeated.!!! 

Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.

It is now more than 65 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

This e-mail is intended to reach 400 million people. Be a link in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world.

How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center 'NEVER HAPPENED' because it offends some Muslim in the United Stat

The Jews are NOT promoting brainwashing children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non-Muslims.

The Jews don't hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants.

There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church.

There is NOT a single Jew who protests by killing people. The Jews don't traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.

Perhaps the world's Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.

Muslims must ask 'what can they do for humankind' before they demand that humankind respects them.
 Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel 's part, the following two sentences really say it all:

'If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel."

                                CANADIAN CITIZENS CALLS 
                                 OUR P.M.TO SHAPE UP
That new "Gay Loonie" has really hit a nerve with Canadians. I can't believe the hundreds of letters, e-mails, and Facebook comments we have received over the last few months. The response to our protest campaign has been enormous. The Mint has noticed. The media has noticed. MPs have noticed.

Over 62,000 people signed our first petition. And we've had so many requests for our "Not on My $" stickers, that we are into our second printing! (6,000 printed to date).

Canadians are not only upset over the politicization of our money, they are angry over this shameless attempt to force the LGBT agenda on every single man, woman, and child in our nation. Mr. Trudeau has just gone too far. He is abusing his power!

That's why I want to take this campaign to the next level. And for that, I need your prayers and support more than eve
All month long, we are going to run the following ad on big screen digital billboards in five high-traffic areas in Ottawa and Toronto (3 in Toronto, 2 in Ottawa). The total cost of this initiative is $8,475.

No Thank You

Why are we running this ad? Three reasons.

1) We want to amplify your voice to Mr. Trudeau. We want to let him know just how upset average Canadians are about this "Gay Loonie". We want his liberal government to realize how he is dividing our nation and marginalizing Christians and traditionally-minded folks. Big billboards will help.

2) Thousands of people out there object to the "Gay Loonie" and the LGBT agenda, but they feel silenced, disenfranchised, and isolated. We want these folks to know they are NOT alone, and that they can have a voice by signing our petition:

3) Just like the LGBT lobby has taken over our loonie, it has also taken over the month of June to push its immorality on Canadians. We want to offer another perspective - another voice - that says firmly but politely: "No, thank you".

If, like me, you feel "enough is enough" - if you feel it is time for Christians and conservatives to take a public stand for truth - then I will ask you to do three things...

#1. Please sign our new petition: Even if you signed our old petition, I ask you to sign and share this new petition. With every signature, this petition sends a direct e-mail to Mr. Trudeau telling him we reject the new dollar coin.

#2. Simply refuse the coin. Saying, "No, thank you," or, "Four quarters, please," will make quite the statement. This is the best way to spread the word in your local community about what Mr. Trudeau is doing and why you object to this coin. (You can also continue to request our "Not on My $" stickers.)

#3. Help us pay for these billboards. $8,475 is a lot of money for us. But I believe it is well worth it. June is the right time to speak out for what's right.

STOP Drag Event at Children's Library!
All hands on deck, folks!

Ohio Value voters has alerted us to an upcoming drag event at the library in Delaware, OH on Wednesday, June 5th that is a new twist on the "drag queen story hour" event.

They'll be teaching kids to dress in drag themselves!

Ohio Value Voters explains: 

This event was scheduled with the intent to host teenagers and teach them the art of drag hosted by a former Miss Gay America and Nina West who is the star of Ru Paul's Drag Race and Ohio's most prominent Drag Queen.

The Delaware County Public Library was contacted and they stated that the event was actually happening at the Orange Branch in Delaware and is coordinated by the children's coordinator--Becky Woodruff.

This is a library-sponsored event as part of the "summer reading program" targeting children 12-17 and for teens only.

The library explained that the funds used to hire Nina West and Miss Gay USA for this event came from the "Friends of the Library Fund" as well as the "Children's Summer Reading Program Fund."  When asked how the enrollment of such a program would play out, it was explained that teens can just show up.

We are told that:
"Becky Woodruff is close friends with Nina West and that the individuals performing and teaching the art of drag are close friends of hers. Becky Woodruff leads all of the children's programs at the library."

Please help us STOP this event by contacting the Delaware Public Library and informing them of the dangers of this kind of event! 

Contact Becky Woodruff or Jenny Ho at the Delaware Library at 740-549-2665.  Let them know that you are opposed to using tax-payer funded libraries for the purpose of hosting the program "The Art of Drag" with teenage children.  
This is an entirely inappropriate event for children to attend, much less on the taxpayer dime. It's impossible to divorce drag from the gender-bending, sexualized culture of the LGBT movement, and until recently, drag queens were usually confined to seedy night clubs and vulgar Pride parades. 

This is an entirely inappropriate event for children and concerned parents everywhere need to pitch in and voice our concerns! 

We have managed to bring so much attention to this troubling issue, and it's all thanks to you and your support.

If you'd like to help us continue this crusade against tax-payer funded drag lessons and gender confusion in taxpayer-funded libraries, please consider a small donation to support our ministry. Thank you all so much! 

For Christ & His children,

 Global  Warmers:
Reminds me of dogs in heat!

'You idiots ... The planet's on f--ing fire!' Bill Nye's message to leaders stalling on climate change

'Grow the f--k up. You're not children anymore. I didn't mind explaining photosynthesis to you when you were 12. But you're adults now.


       Apostasy in the Church, Who Are We Worshipping?  
                                                     By Jim Fletcher    

They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. (Romans 1:25)

As we hurtle ever faster to uncharted territory, I find myself missing some of the “wise men” that have left us. Dave Hunt was such a guy. Check out this quote:

“We ought to be prudent caretakers of the environment God has entrusted to us. Even so, many of the warnings about population explosion and holes in the ozone layer, etc. are alarmist exaggerations aimed at promoting humanist solutions. Some of the theories are highly questionable. As late as 1977, the U.S. Academy of Science warned of a coming new ice age. Now we're being warned of global warming. Moreover, most of the problems are due to the corruption of godless governments which Christ never called us to reform.

“This old creation is under God's judgment and will not be rescued from it, but is ‘held in store’ (i.e., reserved) for destruction by fire (2 Pt 3:7-12). Everything will be destroyed and God will make a ‘new heavens and new earth’ (v 13). We must live for that eternal state and warn mankind that only those saved by the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross will inhabit His new, perfect universe.”

I believe Hunt is right, yet this view seems lunatic to much of the world, including not only some of our politicians (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez), but to too many religious leaders as well, like Shane Claiborne, Jonathan Merritt, and Jen Hatmaker (although I suspect some of them just go along with this climate change clap-trap because it helps them build their own brands among Millennials and progressives).

Ironically, I believe our religious leaders have paved the way for people like Ocasio-Cortez to gain traction among our young people. Writing in “Red Letter Christians” five years ago, Mick Pope claimed that as Christians, “a solid theology of creation and of the resurrection” means we must combat climate change.

What? Of course that’s false. The resurrection has nothing to do with mainstreaming left-wing political ideology, but they use that kind of language to fool evangelicals into believing what they’re selling is legitimate.

On Valentine’s Day, South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg tweeted: “Climate change is a national emergency. The absence of a wall is not.” His comments on climate change are significant because he is yet another wildly progressive voice (Beto O’Rourke, anybody?) gaining traction with young people.

So, we are to assume that climate change is a national emergency and has the same currency as the resurrection. This lunacy might be obvious to many, but next-generation leaders will effect great and crushing change to this country as they are led by the ideology of Marxists.

Twenty years ago, I read a tremendous book by Marvin Lubenow, Bones of Contention, in which the great creationist thinker pointed out that humans today are acutely concerned about the welfare of animals, but have no depth of feeling for humans being aborted.

This is what we've come to: worshipping the creation more than the Creator.

The American Church today staggers and stumbles because evangelical leadership stood down while progressives hijacked the faith of our young people. Many of us will not live to see the dramatic changes in this country that those progressives will impose, but they are coming.

Jerimiah 23:32 Behold I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the Lord, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them; therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the Lord."

Fellow Canadians, I am concerned because Donna and I have six children, seventeen grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren and naturally we are concerned about their future! What kind of a nation are we building for them? And as a Minister of the Gospel of Christ I have always respected the elected Leader of Canada. I have a question, however, for our Prime Minister: "Why did you feel it necessary to walk in a parade with drag queens but not with families of Moms and Dad, Grandmas and Grandpas and children who were publicly celebrating Life. Are you not the Prime Minister of all Canadians? " - Rev. Max Solbrekken,D.D.

                          CHRISTIAN ON DEATH ROW FOR NINE YEARS
                                  NOW FREE FROM SATANIC RELIGION!
I have some great news to share with you. I am now able to confirm that Asia Bibi has finally left Pakistan and is now safe and sound right here in Canada!
Praise God that after nine long years, this cruel and unjust ordeal has finally come to an end. Asia is now free to begin a new life in peace and safety among us.
Asia Bibi
As you may recall, Asia Bibi was arrested and charged with blaspheming the false prophet Mohammed after talking about Christ with her co-workers. She was found guilty and put on death row.
After languishing in prison since 2009, her appeal went through to the Supreme Court of Pakistan. On October 31st, 2018, the Court overturned Asia Bibi’s death sentence and acquitted her of all charges, ordering her immediate release.
However, the Supreme Court’s verdict inflamed the anger of radical Muslims in Pakistan. Violent protests erupted and spread all over the country, with thousands demanding that Asia Bibi be hanged. Asia’s life and freedom were once again in jeopardy.
After her case was formally reviewed, Asia was vindicated a second time. Then, months later, after being sequestered in a secret safe house in Pakistan, she was finally allowed to leave the country and obtain asylum here in Canada.
We at CitizenGO worked to petition the Pakistani government and draw attention to her plight over many years. Hundreds of thousands of CitizenGOers like you signed to show your support for Asia.
Our efforts also included rallies and prayer vigils all over the world. We even ran full- and half-page ads in leading international newspapers, including the Toronto Star and National Post. In addition, we raised thousands of dollars of aid to help Asia and her family.
It was a very long and difficult road to travel for Asia – an exceedingly heavy cross for her and her family to bear. But now, at long last, by God’s grace, she is truly free!
This is a victory we need to celebrate and share with others!
I want to thank you, our CitizenGO family, for all your prayers and financial support over the years in the cause of Asia Bibi. I also want to thank you for signing our petitions in her defence. Finally, I want to say a special thanks to those dozen souls who braved the cold and sleet to stand with me in front of the Pakistani Consulate in Toronto last fall (see below).
Asia Bibi Rally Toronto
God has blessed all of your efforts, all of your prayers, and all of your sacrifice!
Due to the need to keep Asia Bibi safe as she starts her new life in Canada, we are unable to report on her new location or provide any other details at this time. All we can tell you is that she has been relocated somewhere in Western Canada.
Once again, thank you and God bless you for your support!
Sincerely Yours,
David Cooke and the Entire CitizenGO Team

P.S. Please be sure to share this e-mail with your family and friends. Spread the good news!

Christian children sing - Jesus Loves Me this I know for the Bible tells me so. Muslim children need to learn about the real JESUS. We love everyone; Jews and Muslims! M.S.

Muslim Children In Philadelphia Sing About Decapitating Jews

On April 22, the Muslim American Society Islamic Center in Philadelphia (MAS Philly) uploaded a video of an "Ummah Day" celebration to its Facebook page in which young children wearing Palestinian scarves sang: "Glorious steeds call us and lead us [to] the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The blood of martyrs protects us. ... Take us, oh ships ... until we reach our shores and crush the treacherous ones. ... Flow, oh rivers of martyrs!"

A young girl read a poem praising martyrs who sacrificed their lives for Palestine, and she asked: "Will [Jerusalem] be a hotbed for cowards?" Another young girl read: "We will defend [Palestine] with our bodies. ... We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque. ... We will subject them to eternal torture."
MAS Philly belongs to the Muslim American Society (MAS), which has 42 chapters in the United States and one in the United Kingdom. The MAS website says that its mission is to "move people to strive for God-consciousness, liberty and justice, and to convey Islam with utmost clarity," and that its vision is "a virtuous and just American society."

Child Narrator: Those who accept humiliation--what is the point in their existence? Those who reject oppression are the ones who assert their existence, and they eliminate the injustice from the land of the Arabs.

Children Singing: Rebels! Rebels! Rebels! Glorious steeds call us and lead us onto paths leading to the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The blood of martyrs protects us. Paradise needs real men!

The land of the Prophet Muhammad's Night Journey is calling us. Our Palestine must return to us. Oh Saladdin, your men are among us--shame will be washed away!

[You need] force and the Quran, oh free people! We must persevere no matter what happens, and with the help of the Omnipotent Lord, day will follow night.

Take us, oh ships, until we liberate our lands, until we reach our shores and crush the treacherous ones!

Blow, oh winds of Paradise--flow, oh rivers of martyrs! My Islam is calling, who is going to heeds its call? Rise, oh righteous ones!

Girl 1: Our martyrs sacrificed their lives without hesitation. They attained Paradise, and the scent of musk emanates from their bodies. They compete with one another to reach Paradise. Will Jerusalem be their capital city, or will it be a hotbed for cowards?

Girl 2: We will defend the land of divine guidance with our bodies, and we will sacrifice our souls without hesitation. We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque. We will lead the army of Allah fulfilling His promise, and we will subject them to eternal torture.

                       By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
   Right from the Garden of Eden, the stage was set for the Mighty Deliverer to step onto the world stage! The Promise came from Almighty God, Creator of heaven and earth, the cosmos and everything therein.  
   Although the great plan of Redemption and the 'Coming of the Deliverer' to ransom fallen man was already planned, it was not until the treasonous Lucifer had caused humanity’s greatest catastrophe, that Almighty God made it public.
    Certainly, Adam and Eve, the first human beings to rebel, couldn't have seen the announcement coming, as the reality of the immense tragedy unfolded. 
  The Wicked Deceiver undoubtedly knew there would be a strong response from Almighty God to his dastardly deed, but the 'Coming of the Deliverer' was more than he had expected.
   He was stricken with PANIC as he heard the Almighty question Adam and Eve: “Adam, why did you do this”? Adam passed the buck, using a blame game approach: “The woman you gave me, gave me the fruit. It is not my fault.”
   God asked the woman: “What hast thou done?” Eve answered truthfully, “The Serpent beguiled me and I did eat.” She pointed at the devil in the SNAKE and said, “Satan is to blame.”
     The Eternal God stated: “There will now be enmity between man and snakes. People will loathe serpents and hate them. Snakes will crawl on their belly and eat dust because it allowed the Deceiver to enter it. Lucifer, you will identify with the lowest of the low and be named the great Serpent.
    “The Deliverer will be born to a woman without a human father. He will be True God from eternity and True Man through His virgin birth; incarnated (God in human flesh) without sin. He will meet the Demands of Divine Justice to atone for the sins of the world
    Through this act of LOVE, He will atone (pay the penalty) for Adam and Eve's treasonous deeds.  The shedding of His righteous, sinless blood, and His resurrection from the dead will guarantee forgiveness for members of the human family, who will receive Him!
   “But, for you, Lucifer, there will be no peace or redemption. Your fate is sealed forever.  You are an eternally doomed Deceiver. The blood of the Deliverer will negate your power to dominate Adam's race. In the future, your sins of Pride, Greed and Hatred will fuel your torments.
    Fear will constantly haunt you as you search for clues of the Coming Deliverer. You will seek to destroy Him but will be unable to do so. Because of His perfect redemption, He will provide total liberty, forgiveness, healing and eternal life for Adam's fallen race!
     “In the Final Battle, the Deliverer will CRUSH your head, Lucifer. And you will be cast into the Lake that burns with Fire and Brimstone for ever and ever. Throughout eternity, Lucifer, you will be known as Satan, the Liar, Deceiver, Opposer of all righteousness – Enemy of God and Man!”
     The word, Devil, identifies Lucifer as the Liar above all liars, a swindler, traducer, and slanderer. Be-elezub means the Master of flies; dirty, filthy flies! He deceived the woman, but JESUS CHRIST the Redeemer has lifted the heavy burdens from mankind. His pure and perfect blood was shed for all human beings has the power to free all who believe on His Name!
    Jesus stated: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My Word and believeth on Him that sent Me hath everlasting life and shall not come into condemnation: but is passed from death unto life.” (John 5:24)
    The BIBLE says: “Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: Therefore, the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not.
     "Behold, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.” (1 John 3: 1,2)
   “No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and His love is perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in Him, and He in us, because He hath given us of His Spirit.
    “And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth within him, and he in God.” (1 John 4: 12-15),
   “Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and everyone that loveth Him that begat, loveth him also that is begotten of Him. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made Him a liar because he believeth not the RECORD that God gave of His Son.
     “And this is the record that God hath given to us Eternal Life, and this life is in His Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God: that ye might know that ye have eternal life, and that ye might believe on the name of the Son of God.
   “And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given an understanding, that we may know Him that is true, and we are in Him that is TRUE, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is true God and eternal life.” (1 John 5: 1, 11-13,20)
    In his letter to former pagans in Corinth, St. Paul the founder of the Church among the Gentiles, declared that Jesus Christ is the Only Saviour and that all other deities or paths to God, Heaven and eternal life, are false. He stated that they will not save you!
    “But to us (believers) there is but ONE GOD, the Father, of Whom are all things, and we in Him; and ONE Lord Jesus Christ, by Whom are all things, and we by Him.” (1 Cor. 8: 6).
    The Holy Spirit convicts us of our sins. Jesus Christ saves us by His Blood. The Blessed Holy Spirit brings us into the presence the Father.
    The Bible says: “For through Him (Jesus Christ) we both (all believers) have access by one Spirit (Holy Spirit) unto the Father.” (Eph. 1:18); Jesus Christ is the only WAY to God and Heaven! 
    He said: “I am the DOOR, by Me if any man enter in he shall be SAVED, and shall go in and out and find pasture. The thief (Satan) cometh not but for to steal, kill and destroy. I am come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.” (John 10: 9,10).
     KARL BARTH, outstanding European theologian, made this powerful claim for Jesus Christ: “The last word which I have to not a term like “grace”, but a name, “Jesus Christ”. He is grace, and He is the last, beyond the world and the Church and even theology... What I have been concerned to do in my long life has been increasingly to emphasis this name and to say: There is no salvation in any other name than this. For grace, too, is there. There, too, is the impulse to work, to struggle, and also the impulse towards fellowship, towards human solidarity. Everything that I have tested in my life, in weakness and in foolishness, is there. But it is there.”
   The angel of God spoke to Joseph in a dream, saying: “Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and they shall shalt call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins.
    “Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by he prophet saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” (Matt. 1:20-23)
   The name Jesus means Saviour: the salvation of God, therefore JESUS means: The God who saves; the God who heals; the God who delivers! The Salvation of God entails forgiveness for sins, peace of mind, healing for sicknesses and diseases, deliverance from demon powers and eternal life! The prophet said:
    “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, bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His 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 the even was come, thy brought unto Him many that were possessed with devils: and He cast out the spirits with His Word, and healed all that were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esias the prophet, saying Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” (Matt. 8: 16, 17); 
   “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 ye were healed.” (1 Peter 2:24)
   The Bible says: “Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have, give I unto thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” (Acts 3: 6); 
  “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Whom ye crucified, Whom God raised from the dead, even by Him doth his man stand before you whole.   (Acts 4: 10, 12).
     St. Paul stated: “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. And be being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
  “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should  bow, of things in Heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth: and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.” (Phil. 2: 5-11): 
  “But this man (Jesus Christ) because He continueth 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 liveth to make intercession for them.” (Heb. 7: 24-25)
    The BIBLE says: “Neither by the 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 the 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. 9:12-14)                                     “For Christ is not entered  into the holy place made with hands, which are the figures of the true, but into Heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that He should offer Himself often as the High Priest entereth into the Holy place every year with blood of others; For then must He often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now ONCE in the end the world hath He appeared to put away sin by the Sacrifice of Himself.” (Heb. 9:24, 26)    
      St. Paul wrote: “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and ONE mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave Himself a Ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” (1 Tim. 2: 3-6)
     After Christ had put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself, He arose from the dead and as our Eternal High Priest, ascended to Heaven to present His blood in the Holy of Holies where God dwells. And His blood is there now pleading for us and prevailing for us! The High Priest in the Temple never spoke a word as he ministered in the Holy of Holies. His duty was to present the blood and that was sufficient. When God saw the blood, He was satisfied!
    There was no chair in the Holy of Holies. The high priest’s work was never finished. It continued year after year. When Jesus Christ had finished His work, He ascended on High and He sat down on His Father’s right hand in Heaven. It is finished. Salvation is complete. All glory, praise and thanksgiving to Him forever and ever. Amen.
     The Book of Revelation states: “And the Devil that deceived them was cast into the Lake of Fire and brimstone where the Beast and False Prophet are and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever.
     “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 written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire.” (Rev. 20: 10 15)
     What is the Book of Life? Whose names are recorded in the Book of Life? How does one get his name inscribed into the Book of Life? Are some names blotted out of the Book of Life? Why do many Jews during the Jewish New Year season use this greeting: “May your name be inscribed in the Book of Life?”
     After their campaigns, Jesus' disciples were joyous: “And the seventy returned again with JOY, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject to us through Thy name.  And He said unto them, 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.
    “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the (evil) spirits are subject unto you: but rather REJOICE because your names are written in Heaven.” (Luke 10: 18-20)
    At the very moment a person is born again by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God, his name is inscribed in the Lamb's Book of Life. That is the MIRACLE of Christ's redemptive work in our hearts and lives.
    In his powerful altar calls at our church in Edmonton, Baptist evangelist Dr. Hyman Appleman used to say: “The recording angel is waiting to inscribe your name into the Book of Life.”  Even now, sinner friend, the recording angel waits for your decision to receive Christ as your Saviour, to write your name in that great Book! Amen.
