                          24 Years With TMJ IS Over:


                          Says Debra Mitansky, Leduc County, AB

Debra Mitansky at House of Prayer on 
Hiway #632 south of New Sarepta, Alberta
                            CAN A MAN KNOW GOD? PART 8                                                 By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D. D.

We know the One True God through His only Begotten Son Jesus Christ. Anyone reading these inspired words from the heart of God through the pen of St. Paul would have to be spiritually dead, not to rejoice to high Heaven with joy and excitement in knowing the Giver of Life!

Who do you know that could even come close to one of His titles, attributes or accomplishments? The answer is: NO-ONE! Just reading the first chapter of Romans makes me want to fall down before Him in tears of godly sorrow for His death on the cross for me and outright joy for His finished work of salvation for all that will receive His forgiveness and healing! How could any thinking person reject such love and compassion? Only someone who has been brain washed by Satan's lying false prophets!


What a PROFILE: Jesus of Nazareth, True God from eternity and True man through His virgin birth, preaching the Gospel, healing the sick, dying for the sins of the world and rising from the dead for our justification!

The Bible says: “Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the Gospel of God...Concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh. And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of Holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for His Name.” (Rom. 1: 1-5)


Almighty God declares that the worlds were created by His Son and purchased our eternal salvation though His vicarious death on Golgotha's Cross and glorious resurrection from the dead! He addresses His Son as: “Thy Throne, O God, is for ever and ever.”

The Bible says: “God, who at sundry times and in diverse manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom He hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds; Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His Person, and upholding all things by the Word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on High.

“Being made so much better than the angels, as He hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name that they. For unto which of the angels said He at any time, Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten Thee. And again, when He bringeth in the first begotten into the world, He saith, Who maketh His angels spirits, and His ministers a flame of fire.

But unto His Son, He saith, Thy throne O God, is forever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of Thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even Thy God, hath anointed Thee with the oil of gladness above Thy fellows. And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of Thine hands.

“They shall perish; but Thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt Thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but Thou art the same, and Thy years shall not fail. But to which the angels said He at any time, Sit on My right hand, until I make thine enemies Thy footstool.” (Heb.1: 1-13)


Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign; Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a Son, and shall call His Name Emmanuel.” (Is. 7:14); “For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His Name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” (Is. 9:6); “And she shall bring forth a Son, and thou shalt call His name JESUS; for He shall save His people from their sins.” (Matt. 1:21)


Surely He hath borne our sicknesses (heb.) and carried our pains (heb. ), 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 His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him, the iniquity of us all.” (Is. 53:4-6)

For as much as ye know that ye were redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation (lifestyle) received by tradition from your fathers; but with the precious BLOOD of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” (1 Peter 1: 18,19)

When the even was come, they brought unto Him many that were possessed with devils: and He cast out the (evil) spirits with His Word, and HEALED all that were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias 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 are healed. .” (1 Peter 2: 24)

Concerning this Scripture, the great theologian WEYMOUTH wrote: “The burden of our sins He Himself carried in His own body to the cross and bare it there, so that we having died so for our sins are concerned, may live righteous lives. By His wounds you have been healed.”


And, behold, there was a great Earthquake; for the angel of the Lord descended from Heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: and for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

“And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek JESUS, which was crucified. He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell His disciples that He is RISEN from the dead; and behold He goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see Him, lo, I have told you.

“And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with great fear and great joy; and did RUN to bring His disciples word. And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held Him by the feet, and worshipped Him. Then said Jesus unto them. Be not afraid: go tell My brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see Me.

“Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And when they saw Him, they worshipped Him: but some doubted. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in Heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

“Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple...Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God, And all the people saw him, walking and praising God.” (Acts 3:1-9)

Preaching to the multitude gathered there, St. Peter stated: “But ye denied the Holy One and the Just. And desired a murderer to be granted unto you; and killed the Prince of Life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses. And His name, through faith in His name, hath made this man whole, whom ye see and know; yea the faith that is by Him hath given this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.” (Acts 3: 14-16)


To whom also He showed Himself alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty day, and speaking of the things pertaining to the Kingdom of God: And being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which saith He, ye have heard of Me. For John truly baptized with water, but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.” (Acts 1:3-5)

He said: “But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you; and ye shall be witnesses unto Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth. And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight.

“And while they looked steadfastly toward Heaven as He went up, behold two men stood by them in white apparel; which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing into Heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into Heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into Heaven.” (Acts 1: 8-11)


Jesus said, “I will build My Church and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.” (Matt. 16:18). The word church in the Greek is ekklesia, a compound of two segments: ek a preposition meaning “out of,” and a verb kaleo signifying “to call” meaning, “to call out.” The Body of Christ has been called out of the world and separated unto Christ. We are a purchased people, bought by the blood of Christ!

The Bible says: “But we are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvellous light...” (1 Peter 2:9-10). The Greek word is translated 'purchased possession.' (I Peter 1:19), and therefore belong wholly to Christ. (Eph. 1:22); It is local congregations (1 Cor. 1:2; Rev. 1:11) and a group of Christians assembled for worship (1 Cor. 14:34-35).


Eternal Life is given to us only through KNOWING God and His Son Jesus Christ: The Bible says: ''For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world, through Him might be saved.'' (John 3:16,17)

We know that Almighty God is incomprehensible, unknowable and transcendent! How then, is it possible to know Him? Man cannot know God through the intellect. We know Him only through His Word and the Holy Spirit!

In His High Priestly Prayer, our Saviour divulged this great truth: ''All things are delivered unto Me of My Father; and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal Him.'' (Matt.11: 25-27)

Jesus asked His disciples: ''Whom do men say that I am? They answered, Some say that Thou art John the Baptist: some Elias; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.'' (Matt. 16: 13,14). The Lord pressed them: ''But whom do ye say that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God.'' Jesus explained: ''Flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but My Father which is in Heaven.'' (Matt. 16: 16,17)

Concerning the great wisdom of God that is given to believers, St. Paul writes: ''But we speak the wisdom of God in a Mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory, which none of the princes of this world knew: for had thy known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.'' (1 Cor. 2:7,8)

The renowned Baptist pastor, Dr. Vance Havner, wrote: ''Paul...had in mind not only in Heaven, but the riches of God's grace for us here and now. It is impossible to imagine, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, what God can do to us and through us and for us when He can find a man who really cares enough to be His instrument.''


Jesus said: ''Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak unto you, I speak not of Myself: but the Father that dwelleth in Me He doeth the works. Believe Me that I am in the Father, or the Father in Me: or else believe Me for the very works' sake.

''At that day ye shall know that I am in the Father, and ye in Me, and I in you. He that hath My commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him, and will magnify Myself to him.'' (John 14: 10,11, 20).

To know Jesus Christ is to Know God the Father, for He said: ''If a man love Me, he will keep My words: and My Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.'' (John 14: 23)

St. Paul's epistles are filled with the love, power, and provision for believers in Jesus Christ have when we really come to KNOW Him. ''Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who hath blessed must with all spiritual blessings in Heavenly places in Christ.

''According as He hath chosen us in 'before the Foundation of the world', that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love. Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure if His will. To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us Accepted in the Beloved.

''In Whom we have redemption through His BLOOD, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace, wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence. For through Him (Jesus Christ) we both (Jews and Greeks) have access by one Spirit (Holy Spirit) unto the Father.'' (Eph. 2:18). ''Having made known to us the Mystery of His will, according to the good pleasure which He hath purposed in Himself.'' (Eph. 1:4-9)


Nicholas of Cusa (1401-1464) was a philosopher, mathematician and astronomer. Here is his prayer: ''The intellect knoweth that it is ignorant of Thee, because it knoweth Thou canst not be known, unless the unknowable could be known and the invisible beheld, and the inaccessable be attained. If anyne could set forth a concept by which Thou canst be coneived, I know that that concept is not of thee, for every concept is ended i the wall of Paradise... , this man is yet fat from Thee... for as much as Thou art absolute above allo the concepts which any man an frame.'' - The Vision of God, 1928, pages 58-60.

TheBible says; ''For there is ONE God and ONE Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus; who gave Himself as a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.'' (1 Tim. 2: 5,6). Without a mediator, it would be impossible for a human being to approach God at all, let alone to KNOW Him. How grateful I am, that Jesus Christ, God's Son, left Heaven's glory to die upon a rugged cross for us all.

A hymnist penned these wonderful words about our crucified and risen Lord and Saviour, in the glorious hymn, 'Revive us again': All Glory and Praise to the Lamb that Jesus was slain, which hath borne all our sins and hath cleansed every stain. Hallelujah, Thine the Glory, Hallelujah, Amen. Hallelujah, Thine the Glory, Revive us again!


St. Paul declares: ''Jesus Christ...Who is the blessed and only potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords; who only hath immortality dwelling in the light which no man approach unto: whom no man hath seen, nor can see: To whom be honour and power everlasting.'' (1 Tim.6: 15, 16)

Our Lord declared: ''I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man cometh unto the Father but by Me.'' (John14: 6); ''All things are delivered unto Me of My Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him.'' (Matt. 11:27);

''All things are delivered to me of My Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and He to whom the Son will reveal Him.'' (Luke 10: 22); Yet, Jesus said: ''And this is eternal life, that they may know Thee the only, TRUE God and Jesus Christ whom Thou has sent.'' (John 17: 3)


Nearly 100 years ago, Anglican Canon Holmes of India wrote: ''To the average man God is only an inference and not a reality. They have deduced from the evidence at hand that He exists, but He is not personally known to them.'' In his book, The Pursuit of God', A.W. Tozer stated: ''He must be, therefore, we believe', is the basis for their faith in God. Others, know Him only through hearsay.''

According to the great Bible Scholar, A.W. Tozer: ''To many God is only an ideal, another name for Goodness, Mercy or Truth: He is law or life or the creative impulse back of the phenomenon of existence. The common thread in all these is that they do not Know God personally! Believers in Jesus Christ as the Son of God believes in the personality of God as the Son of God. Jesus taught us to call God, FATHER, something the prophets in the O.T. did not.

God is more than an ideal or a mere principal. He can be known by experience. A.W. Tozer writes: ''A loving personality dominates the Bible, walking among the trees of the Garden and breathing fragrance over every scene. Always a loving Person is present, speaking, pleading, loving, working and manifesting Himself whenever or wherever His people have the recepivity necessary to receive the manifestation.»

We see the Personality of God in the following Scriptures: ''O taste and see that God is good.'' (Ps.34:8); ''All Thy garments smell of palaces .'' (Ps.45: 8); ''My sheep hear My voice.'' (John 20: 27); ''Blessed are the pure of heart for they shall see God.'' (Matt. 5:8); Without faith it is impossible to please God, for he that cometh to God must believe that He is and that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently SEEK Him. (Heb. 11:6)

A.W. Tozer continues: ''A Spiritual Kingdom lies all about us, enclosing us, embracing us, all within the reach of our inner selves, waiting for us to recognize it. God Himself is here, waiting for our response to His presence.'' The Eternal worlds will come alive to us the moment we begin to reckon upon its reality.''

Dr. Ole Hallesby, the famous Evangelical Lutheran pastor founded the Evangelical Lutheran Seminary in Norway to oppose the modernism, apostacy and unbelief taught at the University in the setting of the Lutheran State Church. In his Commentary Matthew 21:12, 22, he wrote: Now and then, we make discoveries which almost take your breath away, namely, when we see what great powers are present in this realm of the invisible. This is especially true when these powers are put to our disposal, when God performs a mighty miracle simply because we ask Him to do so.” 

Dr. Hallesby made it plain that absolutely all of God's promises are TRUE, even though we cannot understand them. Since He created everything out of Nothing, and raised Jesus Christ from the dead, certainly He can move a mountain or two if He so desires!

The problem is that we are so infantile in our faith. The solution is in getting to know our Saviour more intimately through prayer, His Word and by the Holy Spirit. If we are able to believe with all our heart that He means what He says and trust Him with no reservation, we will see His almighty power operate in our lives in afar greater measure!

Jesus said: Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of Myself: but the Father that dwelleth in Me, He doeth the works. Believe Me that I am in the 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 ye do also; and greater works shall ye do than these, 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)

St. Paul declared: ''Therefore if any man be in Christ Jesus, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given unto us the ministry of reconciliation: That is, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

''Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us, we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For He hath made Him (Jesus Christ) to be sin (sin offering) for us, who knew NO SIN; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.'' (2 Cor. 5: 17-21)

''For in Him (Christ) dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And we are complete in Him, which is the Head of all principality and power.'' (Col. 2: 9,10)


Jesus is the First in rank over every creature. He is the first born from the dead. He is the only one who died and was raised; never to die again! Lazarus had to die the second time after Christ raised Him up! The first born was always the first in rank. No-one is before Him. He was there in the beginning before anything was created. God the Father used God the Son to create all things!

The Bible states: ''In Whom we have Redemption through His BLOOD, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature. For by Him were all things made, that are in Heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created Him, and for Him. And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. And He is the Head of the Body, the Church: Who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead: that in all things, He might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father, that in Him should all fullness dwell.

''And having made PEACE through the BLOOD of His CROSS, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself, by Him, I say, whether they be things in earth or things in Heaven. And you that were sometimes alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath He reconciled. In the Body of His flesh through DEATH, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in His sight.'' (Col.1:14-22)


Christ is our life. He lives in us and works through us. We feed on His holy Word and are led by the blessed Holy Spirit! His love shines through us and His compassion grips our spirits as we reach out to those around us with the glorious presence of the Eternal! His wisdom astounds us and His healing power destroys the work of the Enemy as we labour to build the Kingdom of God!

We have a God given mandate to liberate the lost and dying wherever we find them and to heal the sick and suffering in the matchless Name of Jesus Christ. He has prepared the way for us through His vicarious death on Calvary's Cross and His resurrection from the dead! Our names are already written down in the Lamb's Book of Life and our inheritance is incorruptible and undefiled reserved in Heaven for us!

Do we deserve any of these wonderful gifts? Absolutely Not! Did we do anything to earn this status as children of the Most High God? A thousand times, NO! How did all this happen, then? You cannot pay for a gift! The Bible says: ''For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting Life. For God sent not His Son into the word to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. '' (John 3:16, 17). Amen.

24 Years With TMJ IS Over:


                                       Says Debra Mitansky, Leduc County, AB

The atmosphere became electric! I saw a glory cloud. The Holy Spirit hovered at the altar.  The man of God, Evangelist Max Solbrekken then immediately began to invite all the people to come to the altar. He then began laying hands and ministering to them one by one. It happened on Sunday June 29th.

During my thirty - year career in the public service, work/life stresses began to affect my health.  Serving the judiciary as a judicial assistant to many federal judges was very stressful and demanding. 

It was in 1990 that I began clenching my jaw. Gritting and grinding my teeth was a nightly occurrence. I cracked my molars causing expensive dental repairs.  There were times when I would wake myself up at night trying to pull my jaw loose because the clench would be so tight.  I learned from my doctor that the jaw muscle is one of the strongest muscles in your body. No wonder I couldn’t pull it loose!  One morning when I awoke my jaw was completely locked.  After physiotherapy using a type of “gas” for TMJ  (temporomandibular joint) I could gradually open my mouth – but then the TM joints would swell, making my face swell because my jaw was crooked.  I carried on going to work.   

At the New Sarepta camp meeting, the Holy Spirit was welcomed into the evening service, and then the congregation was led into a beautiful experience of praise and worship, in one accord, where there was a reverence and worship to the Lord, and then the atmosphere became electric! I saw a glory cloud. I felt the glory cloud entering by the tent door on the east side. The Holy Spirit hovered at the altar.  The man of God, Evangelist Max Solbrekken then immediately began to invite all the people to come to the altar. He then began laying hands and ministering to them one by one.  Jesus the Healer was in the House!!

When it was my turn to be prayed for, I remember the man of God, Pastor Max putting his hands over my head and covering my ears, and then with real authority in his voice he declared, “By the authority invested in me by the power of the name of Jesus Christ, “Go, leave her now!! Be healed in the name of Jesus!” 

I heard a “cracking snap sound” in my jaw area and the next thing I knew I woke up on the grassy floor of the tent. The next morning I noticed that my mouth moved and opened straight, and there was no clicking.  During the day, I noticed that swelling around the tm joints was decreasing.

No headaches, my ears began to open up.  My mind felt different somehow. It was as though I walked with peace and clarity, and the loss of balance issues were completely gone!  It has now been three weeks and when I look into the mirror I don’t see any swelling at all. I am completely healed. The God that made me and knows my DNA knows how to heal me! This is our Christ the Healer! This is our balm of Gilead! All the glory goes back to Jesus! - Debra M

                     SATAN HAS COME DOWN HAVING MUCH                                WRATH KNOWING HE HATH SHORT TIME!                                                Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

 He's worried because he doesn't have much time left, before he is cast into Hell and the Lake of Fire for Eternity. He is desperate to do as much Evil in this world before his time is up! The devil is the organizer of sin, fear, sickness, disease, plagues and terrorism. Who puts the desire to rape, murder, kill and lie? Satan the father of lies is the culprit. He has come to steal, kill and destroy. (John 10:10) He enters the minds of those who refuse the Gospel of Jesus Christ. What the world needs is a Revival of Righteousness. Let us spread the Word of God that brings mental stability, PEACE and HEALING to the human race NOW before it is too late! (Rev. 12:11,12)






By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and to depart from evil, that is understanding.” (Proverbs 9:10); “But thou, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge of the Holy shall be increased.” (Daniel 12:4)

Have ye not known? Have ye not heard? Hath it not been told you from the beginning? Have ye not understood from the foundation of the earth?

It is He that sitteth upon the CIRCLE of the earth? And the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in: To whom then will ye liken Me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. Hast thou not known? Hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of His understanding.

He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increaseth strength. But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength: they shall mount up on wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40: 21,22, 25, 28-31)


Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection? It is high as Heaven; what canst thou do? Deeper than Hell; what canst thou know? The measure thereof is longer than the earth and broader than the sea.” (Job 11: 7-9)

For thus saith the High and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with Him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.” (Is. 57: 15)

The Eternal God is thy Refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and He shall thrust out the enemy from before thee...” (Deut. 33: 27)

How can we ordinary plebeians, get to know the Almighty thrice-holy God, when prophets like Moses, Isaiah, Daniel and Job trembled in His presence and wrote words about the 'Ever Living One' that make us tremble?

King Solomon wrote, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom and the Knowledge of the Holy is understanding.” (Prov. 9:10).


What is the Fear of the Lord? It is to think so highly of God with such deep respect that we desire and want to obey Him. And the more we learn about Him, the more we want to be in His presence!

Knowing our low intelligence as earthlings, Almighty God sent His incarnated Son to walk among us to teach us about His Father. He wanted His Father to be our Father. The was problem, was our accumulated sins going back to Adam and Eve!

Our sins had separated us from Him. Jesus Christ crossed that Gulf and brought us together at the Cross. He took ours sins upon Himself and atoned for them all by shedding His pure, righteous and holy blood on the old rugged Cross at Golgotha!

The natural man cannot understand God or even approach Him except through the shed Blood of His Son Jesus Christ, who took our place on the Cross of shame and humiliation!

Isaiah wrote: “He was wounded for our transgressions. He was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement of our peace was upon Him and with His stripes, we are healed.” (Is. 53: 4,5). In explaining the phenomenon of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and Christ's miracle on the crippled man at the Gate Beautiful, St. Matthew quoted the prophet:

When the even was come, they brought unto Him many that were possessed with devils, and He cast them out with His Word, and healed all that were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Easias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” (Matt. 8: 16, 17)

The Bible declares: “Who His own Self (Jesus) bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes we are healed.” (1 Peter 2:24)

St. Paul stated: “For as much then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise 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)

Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness and hath translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son:

In whom we have Redemption through His Blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: (first in rank; the One who began the creating)

For by Him were all things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him:

And He is the Head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fullness dwell:

And, having made peace through the Blood of His Cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself; by Him, I say, whether they be things, in earth, or things in Heaven.

And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath He reconciled in the Body of His flesh through Death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in His sight: If ye continue in the faith...” (Col 1: 12-23)


For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God had showed it unto them.

For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal godhead; so that they are without excuse.

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and to four-footed beasts and creeping things.

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lust of their own body to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, Who is blessed forever. Amen.

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature.

And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind to do these things which are not convenient.

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness: full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents.” (Rom. 1: 18-20).


We have often been asked if the pagan will be lost or will God be more lenient toward them. We know that Almighty God is filled with compassion toward everyone. We also know that His love sent Jesus our Saviour to this planet to atone for the sins of the world, past, present and future!

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3: 16, 17)

St. Paul writes about the Wrath of God against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who hold the truth in unrighteousness of men; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God had showed it unto them.

For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal godhead; so that they are without excuse.” (Rom.1: 20)

The people referred to by St. Paul had at one time known God. They had been pure, righteous people who walked with God, but had turned from Him. God gave them up to a reprobate mind and they became totally perverted in their thoughts, lifestyles and worship.


The creation itself shouts out the truth that God exists. Martin Luther stated that God not only wrote His Word in the Holy Scriptures, but also in His creation! Anyone who will not see God's creative work in mankind and all living creatures, the earth, the universe and the expanding outer space, is indeed a human being who is spiritually and mentally retarded!

Anyone looking at His great handiwork knows there must be a Creator. St. Paul states that God had revealed Himself to them through His creation and by His Holy Spirit.

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to beasts, and birds and four- footed beasts, and creeping things. (Rom. 1:18-32)

Jesus stated, “Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in Thy sight. All things are delivered unto Me of My Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him.

Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me: for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” (Matt. 11: 27, 28)

St. Paul stated: “That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death.” (Phil. 3: 10); Although he knew the Risen Christ in a powerful and intimate way, having been carried to Heaven and heard unutterable words, he still sought to know Him better!

And therein lies the secret of receiving God's wisdom, presence and power in His holy Ministry. The great Apostle was totally sold out to Christ's Kingdom and His Gospel. We must do the same; follow in his footsteps and be willing to lay down our lives for His Name and His great work!

For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou. O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, where unto thou art called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.” (1 Tim.6:10-12)


Now unto the King, eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory forever and ever. Amen. (1Tim.1:17). “That I might KNOW Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, been made conformable to His death. Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before I PRESS toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Let us therefore as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. For our conversation is in Heaven to the working where; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue all things unto Himself.” (Phil. 3:10-15, 20,21)

Although St. Paul knew the Risen Christ in a powerful and intimate way, having been carried to Heaven and heard unutterable words, he still sought to know Him better! Herein, lies the secret of receiving God's leading, presence and power in His holy Ministry. We also must be willing to give Him our all, for His honour and glory!

He wrote Timothy: “I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession: That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in times past shall show, who is the Blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; Whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to Whom be honour and power everlasting.” (1 Tim. 6: 13-16)

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness, but is long suffering to usward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:8,9)

God created man in His own image and His own likeness. He made man for Himself, therefore He reveals Himself to us through His creation: “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into hie nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (Gen. 2: 7

God reveals Himself to us in many and various ways: Through the creation, through conscience, through His Word, through the Holy Spirit and through His Son Jesus Christ!


Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the cornerstone thereof: When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God (angels) shouted for joy?” (Job 38: 4-7)

For, lo, He that formeth the mountains, and createth the winds, and declareth unto man what is His thought that maketh the morning darkness, and threadeth upon the high places of the earth The Lord, The God of hosts, is His name.” (Amos 4: 13);

O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Thy name in all the earth! who hast set Thy glory above the heavens. When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which Thou hast ordained; What is man, that Thou art mindful of him? And the son) of man, that Thou art mindful of Him?” (Ps. 8: 1-4)

Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars Hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD, whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, Him declare I unto you. God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that He is Lord of Heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though He needeth anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one BLOOD all nations of men for to dwell on the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation.

That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after Him, and find Him, though He be not far from every one of us: For in Him we live, and move, and have our being, as certain also of your poets have said, For we are also His offspring. For as much then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven y art and man's device.

And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men to repent: Because He hath appointed a DAY, in the which He will judge the world, in righteousness by THAT MAN whom He hath ordained; wherein He hath given Assurance unto all men, in that He hath raised Him from the dead.” (Acts 17:22- 32)


He hath made everything beautiful in His time: also He hath set the world (eternity) in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.” (Eccl. 3:11)

For when the Gentiles, which have not law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another; In the Day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my Gospel.” (Rom. 2: 14-16)

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils: speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot iron.” (1 Tim.4: 1,2)

What is the conscience? I believe that the conscience is a God given gift to every human being, a moral compass guiding us toward the right ways of God and protecting us from that which will harm us. It is a policeman given to keep us on the straight and narrow. It is in fact, the Word of God in our members telling us to reject evil and admonishing us to obey His holy precepts!

But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.” (Rom. 7: 1). The conscience can be cleansed and purged by the blood of Jesus! (2 Cor. 4: 2; 1 Tim. 3:9)

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: 14; 10:22)


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the Word was made flesh, and dealt among us, and we beheld His glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1: 1-4, 14)

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the WORD of life: For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and show unto you that Eternal Life which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;

That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: And truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ.” (1 John 1: 1-4)

The Holy Scriptures declare that Jesus Christ was Himself the Word of God which the Father sent into the world to REDEEM us! He came as the Lamb of God to die on the CROSS in our place, to deliver us from the power of SIN and the kingdom of Darkness! When He arose from the dead in a triumphant VICTORY over death, Hell and the Grave, He had crushed the Serpent's Head and sealed Satan's fate for Eternity in the Lake of Fire!


The Bible says: “Come unto Me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you eternal Life.” (Matt. 11: 28); “All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me, and him that cometh to Me, I will in no wise cast out.” (John 6:37). Almighty God states that He watches over His Word to confirm it. (Jer. 1: 12).

For the Word of God is quick (alive) and powerful and sharper than any two-edged 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. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.” (Heb. 4:12,13)

Many years ago, a missionary had penetrated a village for the very first time. The chief sat on the front bench as the crowd had come to see what was going on. The Missionary presented Jesus Christ the Son of God, bleeding from a horrific scourging, crucified and dying on the rugged Cross. Suddenly, the Chief jumped to his feet, shouting: “Stop! Take Him down from the cross. Take Him down from the Cross. I belong there”!

This great testimony proves the power of the Gospel to convict a total pagan of his guilt and Jesus Christ's sacrificial death for sinners! God's Word convicts sinners and supplies forgiveness and pardon!


The Holy Spirit is Eternal and together with the Father and the Son, make up the Godhead! The Bible declares: “In the beginning God created the heaven and earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: And there was light.” (Gen.1:2,3)

Jesus said: “And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of Truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you.

I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in My Name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you, not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14: 16-18; 26-27)

Jesus told His disciples: “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you, but if I depart, I will send Him unto you.

And when He is come, He will reprove the world of Sin, and of Righteousness, and of Judgment. Of sin because they believe not on Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father, and ye see Me no more. Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit, when He, the SPIRIT OF TRUTH, is come He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come.

He shall Glorify Me (Jesus): for He shall receive of Mine, and shall show it unto you. All things that the Father hath are Mine: therefore said I, that He shall take of Mine and show it to you. A little while, and ye shall not see Me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see Me, because I go to the Father.” (John 16:7-16)

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit Himself maketh intersession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And He that searchest 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)

Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you to be ignorant. Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led. Wherefore I give you to understand. That no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

"To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another diverse kinds of tongues; the another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as He will.” (1 Cor. 12: 1,7-11)

Jesus Christ is the Living Word of God and the Holy Bible is the written Word of God. And if you believe in Him as your Lord and receive Him as your Saviour, He will come into your heart with His forgiveness, peace and eternal Life! AMEN.
