                                  GOSPEL OF CHRIST:                                           THE GOOD NEWS!                                                             By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

by Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

I wrote this brief paper in 1973 following our crusade in Haiti. It is even more relevant today! M.S.

A few short years ago the then popular youth singers called the 'Beatles' made a most ridiculous and sacrilegious statement to the effect that Christianity was dead and that 'The Beatles' were more popular than Jesus Christ. Today these baggy looking Britishers are seldom ever heard of, having long since disbanded, but the Gospel of Jesus Christ marches on!

We have just concluded (Jan. 7, 1973) a history making Gospel Crusade in the Duvalier Stadium in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, where local missionaries and officials estimated crowds in excess of 50,000 persons present during our final service.

In this great crusade in which tens of thousands professed new found faith in Jesus Christ, and hundreds were healed divinely and miraculously by God's power, we never heard the name of 'the Beatles' mentioned; while the mighty name of Jesus Christ was praised, worshipped, adored and lifted up as the only name under Heaven given among men whereby we might be saved. (Acts 4:12)

Fifty thousand people lifted their hands in praise and worship to our wonderful Lord; glorious and spontaneous were the outbursts of acclamation of Jesus Christ as Saviour, healer, baptizer and soon coming King. No, my beloved friend, Christianity is far from being dead - Jesus Christ is very much alive and working in the hearts and lives of those who trust Him completely.

The heavenly joy that filled the hearts and souls of the multitudes in Haiti when they realized that their sins were gone and that they were free from the devil's grip, caused them to literally leap for joy and dance before the Lord with great fervency. Outstanding physical healing and miraculous happenings also took place on a grand scale among these newly converted people. How we thank and praise God for all His goodness to us!


It is true that the figures show a recent continuous downward trend in church attendance among many of the Protestant, as well as the Roman Catholic churches of today. It is also true that sin has made tremendous inroads into the church, to say nothing of the sweeping mandate given to wickedness and unrighteousness across this world in this hour.

There is also another factor to consider and that is that there is still a remnant who have not bowed their knee to Baal and who have not given in to the impulses and suggestions of devilish and anti-Christ forces!

This remnant of Blood-washed, Holy Ghost filled believers is marching forward with tremendous conviction, compassion and confidence. Who can stop it? Absolutely no one! For the Bible declares that the gates of hell shall not prevail against the church. (Matt. 16:18). Oh, hallelujah! This little group of Blood-washed, redeemed souls which God has sprinkled throughout the earth will do great exploits for His Kingdom in these last and closing days of time.

Recent reports bring to light the fact that even though the United Church of Canada has compromised the Word of God by bringing in the New Curriculum, which in many areas denies the Word of God, their church attendance has not increased, but rather is decreasing at a very rapid pace.


Why are the modernistic churches having all this difficulty while the Evangelical and Pentecostal churches are moving forward by leaps and bounds? Let me answer this in just a few sentences: The Church is a spiritual organism, meeting a spiritual need in the lives of people. The Evangelical, Pentecostal church meets the spiritual need of the people while the modernistic church is running competition with the social clubs, the political organizations and the fun clubs of the world. The United Church and her modernistic sisters have ceased to be a viable, spiritual and real organism in the propagating of the gospel. They are not fulfilling the role of the church and the Holy Spirit must be grieved.

I cannot judge any church, but Jesus said, “By their fruits ye shall know them.” (Matt. 7.16). Again, the Word of God is the Final Authority. Christendom's greatest mistake down through the generation is twofold: First their rejection of the Holy Spirit, His demonstration, His manifestation and His gifts; and Secondly: the rejection of the Word that He inspired - the Holy Bible.


The Bible is very explicit on the Ministry of the Holy Spirit and the place He must have in our lives and in the church. He is the Spirit of Truth, the Great Teacher and the Divine Paraclete. The Holy Spirit is very God, being the Third Person in the God Head. The Scriptures warn, "Grieve not the Holy Spirit". (1 Th. 5:19)

Again, the Bible reports the judgment that befell those who resisted the Holy Ghost. (Acts 7:51). Great stress is laid upon the fact that we are to be filled with the Holy Spirit and allow His gifts to operate in our lives for the edifying of our own selves, the edifying of the church and the perfecting of the Body of Christ. (1 Cor. 14:4-5, 12; Eph. 4:12)

The Bible says, "Despise not prophesyings", which are given by the Holy Spirit. (1 Th. 5:20). When someone despises you because of your experience with God, he is despising God. When someone ridicules you because of your experience in the Holy Spirit he is despising the Holy Spirit. (1 Th. 4:8)


There is a sin mentioned in the Bible that is unpardonable - the sin of blaspheming the Holy Ghost. Jesus said, "Verily I say unto you, all sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme. But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness but is in danger of eternal damnation". (Mark 3:28-29)

The Bible says: "Wherefore I say unto you, all manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto man; and whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him; but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come". (Matt. 12:31-32)

Let us read what triggered this warning by our Master: "Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw. And all the people were amazed, and said, is not this the Son of David? But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, this fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils". (Matt. 12:22-24)

Jesus pinpoints the sin of blaspheming the Holy Ghost: "Because they said He (Jesus) had an unclean spirit". (Mark 3:30). Jesus was filled with the Holy Ghost at the River Jordan (Luke 3:21-22); He returned from the wilderness temptation in the power of the Spirit. (Luke 4:14)

The Bible says: "God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and power, who went about doing good and healing all who are sick for God was with Him". (Acts 10:38). Jesus stated that He cast out devils by the Spirit of God (Matt. 12:28) and yet the carnal religious leaders of His day declared that He used the power of Satan (Beelzebub) to heal the sick and cast out devils.

Jesus declared that the devil cannot cast out the devil, and then He warned them concerning blaspheming the Holy Ghost. They had called the Holy Ghost a dirty, filthy, unclean devil! (Mark 3:30). Those who today ridicule the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, deny His power and attribute His gifts, manifestations and demonstrations to the devil are blaspheming the Holy Ghost as their predecessors did in the time of Jesus.


The Bible speaks of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and the gifts of the Spirit as follows: "Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you 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 the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

"And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. 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; to 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. 12:1-11)

After Christ ascended to Heaven, God placed the Holy Spirit in the Church to lead us (Eph. 1:22). Jesus said, "And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you forever; 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, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you." (John 14:16-18)

Again, Jesus said, "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". (John 14:26)

"But when the Comforter is come, Whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, He shall testify of Me". (John 15:26). Jesus stated, "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 whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come. He shall glorify Me: for He shall receive of Mine, and shall shew it unto you." (John 16:7-14)

In most churches the Holy Spirit has no room to operate because organization and man-made programs have taken over. The church has taken the leadership out of the hands of the Blessed Holy Ghost and put it into the hands of mere mortals. God has been displeased and the Holy Spirit and His works and manifestations are simply played down as nothing.


In many churches today the moving of the Holy Spirit is not welcome! The religious pray for revival but when He begins to move in a supernatural way in their midst they do not have enough of God in their lives to know this is an answer to their prayers. Anything which they cannot understand is rejected, thereby eliminating the moving of the Holy Spirit, for He certainly is not a man and if we could understand Him we would either be God or He would be a mere mortal.

The Bible likens the Holy Spirit to the wind which you can feel, but cannot see. You can see the effects of the wind blowing on the trees; you can feel the effect of the wind blowing on your person, but you cannot see the wind. (John 3:8). God works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform.

Again, the Scriptures teach: "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts." (Isaiah 55:8-9)


When God answered the prayers of the waiting one hundred and twenty on the day of Pentecost, He certainly did not do it as they expected, I am sure; He did it nevertheless as He wanted it done. If many of, "this generation's theologians" would have been present, they would have cried "wildfire, fanaticism and emotionalism" and run out of the room in total disgust, as the Holy Ghost fell upon the one hundred and twenty.

The Bible says that He came as a rushing mighty wind and in tongues of supernatural fire. They were all filled with the Holy Ghost and He began to speak through them in other tongues, bringing praise to God. These waiting believers were praying, praising and worshipping God, when Jesus poured out upon them the promised Holy Ghost.

Then they began to speak in tongues and worship God in other languages not learned. The Bible says they were accused of being drunken and I suppose they staggered around like drunken men and women under the influence of the Holy Spirit. Some may have fallen on the floor as they were immersed in God's Holy Spirit. What a sight!

Peter calmed the skeptics by saying, "These are not drunken as you suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. But this is that which was spoken the Prophet Joel: And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh... (Acts 2:17-18; Joel 2:23-28)

Isaiah the Prophet also prophesied concerning the outpouring of the Holy Ghost and speaking in other tongues when he said, "For with stammering lips and another tongue will He speak to this people. To whom He said, this is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing; yet they would not hear." (Isaiah 28:11-12)

Here is the reason the churches are floundering today: Their rejection of the manifestation of the Holy Ghost - The rejection of speaking in tongues! "Yet they would not hear." No wonder Paul wrote: "Forbid not to speak with tongues (1 Cor. 14:39) despise not prophesyings (1 Th. 5:21) and grieve not the Holy Ghost". (Acts 7:51)


There is a verse in Holy Scripture which the opponents of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost use. Here it is: "Let everything be done decently and in order". (1 Cor. 14:40)

The problem lies in what is interpreted as "decent and in order". Man's interpretation is often slightly or greatly different than God's interpretation. Reading the Bible, we notice that when His people allowed the Holy Spirit to work through them, they accomplished things that religious leaders today would classify as out of order, but which was perfectly in order.

We find a classic example in Luke 19:37-40: "And when He was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; saying, blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.

And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto Him, Master rebuke thy disciples. And He answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out."

The Bible says that the whole multitude (thousands) began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice. Can you imagine the noise from thousands shouting and praising God with a loud voice. Some Pharisees from among the multitude were offended and told Jesus to stop them; Jesus totally rejected their suggestions and put His stamp of approval on what they were doing, saying: "I tell you that if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out". (v. 40). The Pharisees thought it was not decent and in order, but Jesus said it was perfectly and totally in order and very decent!

Some time ago my good friend Rev. John Harbarenko, who is a full gospel pastor at Swan River, Manitoba, was discussing this ministry with some other ministers; he was telling of the mighty things God was doing through this ministry. A few didn't like the way I was doing some things. John D. Harbarenko countered by saying, "I like the way Max Solbrekken is doing it better than the way you preachers are not doing it"!

I like that because it is scriptural. First, let everything be done. So many people are so afraid they won't do anything right that they never do anything! And as human beings we all are prone to make some errors in judgment!

The Bible says, "There is none righteous, no not one". (Rom. 3:10). St. Paul declared that he was not perfect but was pressing on toward the mark of perfection in Christ. (Phil. 3:12) It is tragic LIE to believe that a fallible cardinal suddenly becomes infallible because white smoke came out of the chimney at the Vatican instead of black smoke.

Certainly, none of us are perfect in ourselves, but we are perfect in Christ, and must strive to do His work by the power of the Holy Spirit. Let everything be done decently and in God's order! Amen!


Once you reject an individual it is not difficult to reject his works. When the Roman Catholic Church rejected John Hus condemning him to death, they condemned and burned his writings. If you have no respect for an individual you will have no respect for the work he has accomplished, because you will be prejudiced against it.

Multitudes today have rejected the blessed Holy Spirit saying that He is just a presence, or just a force, or a figment of man's imagination, or simply a myth. They have rejected His workings among men as wildfire, fanaticism and emotionalism. What a tragedy! These same multitudes have also rejected the Holy Bible which He inspired.

Some say they believe it, but their actions prove otherwise. Some blatantly attack the Holy Scriptures, others add to it with their man-made doctrines, dogmas, traditions and rituals. Still others remove from the Holy Scriptures what they do not believe, going so far as to translate the Holy Bible and make a new version for the sole purpose of propagating their teaching.

What a shame! Hear the indictment God gives against these false teachers: "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book." (Rev. 22:18-19)


"We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." (2 Peter 1:19-21)

Jesus rebuked the Pharisees of His day because they rejected the Word of God in favor of their own traditions: "He answered and said unto them, well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, this people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups; and many other such things ye do. And he said unto them, full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition." (Mark 7:6-9)

Hear the words of our Lord Jesus Christ to the unbelievers of His generation: "And if any man hear My words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth Me, and receiveth not My words, hath one that judgeth him: the Word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. For I have not spoken of Myself; but the Father which sent Me, He gave Me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that His commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto Me, so I speak." (John 12:47-50)

The words of Jesus Christ shall judge mankind in that day; yes, my friend, the Word of God will be opened on the Judgment Day and you will face the unadulterated Word of God and be judged thereby.


"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 the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them; and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire; This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." (Rev. 20:11-15)

The Bible states that the books will be opened; one of those books will be your individual record; the other one will be the Holy Bible, God's Word, and then another book which is the Lamb's Book of Life. (v. 12). Judgment is coming - I warn you my friend, put your house in order: prepare to meet God and get right with God and your fellowmen!

The Bible says: "The Scriptures cannot be broken". (John 10:35). Again, the Bible says: "The heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up". (2 Peter 3:10). My beloved friend, I assure you that God's Word will never fail because God will never fail. His Word will not return void but will accomplish that which He determines it to do, for His Word is totally perfect, authoritative and completely pure, unadulterated and infallible. Hallelujah!


The churches, denominations, clergymen, preachers and teachers that reject the Holy Spirit, His demonstrations, His manifestations and His gifts and reject the Word that He inspired, are dead spiritually and are as phony as a three dollar bill in their claims to be saving mankind in the Name of God. Jude puts his finger on these ungodly rejecters of the true gospel when he writes:

"These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear; clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.

And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, behold the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage. But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; how that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit." (Jude 4:12-19)

These people are sensual, worldly and filled with pride, so they separate themselves from the true believer who is filled with the Holy Spirit. Jude continues in verse 20 by saying, "But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost". (1 Cor. 14:2). Praying in the Spirit means praying in other tongues!

St. Paul said, "I will pray with the Spirit (unknown tongues) and I will pray with the understanding also". (1 Cor. 14:15) (Languages he had learned), The Bible says, "He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself". (1 Cor. 14:4) (builds himself up). No wonder then that Jude writes, "But ye beloved, building up yourselves (edifying yourselves) on your most Holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost". The Bible states: "For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth..." (1 Cor. 14:14)

                                        I TAKE MY STAND!

St. Peter writes: "These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.

While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage." (2 Peter 2:17-19)

In view of the grave situation in religious circles today and the almost wholesale departure from the faith of some church denominations, I take my stand privately and publicly as a defender of the faith which was once delivered to the saints. (Jude 3)

As a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and a servant of God, I proclaim that I believe that the blessed Holy Spirit is in fact the third person in the Godhead; that He is the Divine Paraclete; the wonderful comforter and great teacher, leading the Church of which Jesus Christ is the only Head. Jesus Christ is the head of the church (Eph. 1:22; 5:23; Col. 1:18) (of which I am a member), comprised of blood-washed believers from every tribe, kindred and nation. (Rev. 5:9). I believe that the Baptism of the Holy Ghost is for every born again believer in this generation:

"For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call". (Acts 2:39). I further believe that His demonstrations, manifestations and gifts are available for His people today and will be until Jesus Christ comes again for His bride.

"For we know in part, and we prophesy in part, but when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. For now we see through a glass darkly; but then (at the coming of Jesus) face to face; now I know in part, but then (in eternity with Christ) shall I know even as also I am known". (1 Cor. 13:9-10, 12)

"But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal." (1 Cor. 12:7). Finally, since God has placed the Holy Spirit in the world, He will be here until Jesus Christ comes again. "For the mystery of iniquity doth already work, only He who not letteth (Holy Spirit) will let, until He be taken out of the way". (at the coming of Christ) (1 Th. 2:7)

                              PROPHECY FROM GOD SAVED HIS LIFE!

GORDON LINDSAY founded Christ for the Nations in Dallas, Texas, and was a great writer and promoter of Full Gospel Evangelists. He also raised money to help build churches in a number of Third World countries. In March 4, 1966 he was scheduled to visit the Philippine Islands. A group of women were in a time of prayer and Pastor Lindsay stopped by to request prayer for his journey. An elderly lady laid hands on him and prophesied these words: “When you arrive in Tokyo, do not turn to the left or right. Go straight ahead.”

When he arrived in Tokyo, he would have to turn left to connect with the All Nippon Airways to continue his flight to the Philippines. To go straight ahead would necessitate staying over night in Tokyo. He felt that he must obey the words of warning in the prophecy he was given. When he got settled in a hotel room, he heard the news that his Airways flight had shortly after takeoff, malfunctioned and crashed into Tokyo Bay killing 133 on board.

While in the Philippines, Thomas Tutyko and I met Gordon Lindsey in a little village where he was providing funds for the roof on a new church. We thank God for His protection through the blessed Holy Spirit.

There were only three flights a week with Canadian Pacific from Vancouver to Tokyo when Tom and I began our 3 ½ month Preaching Crusade beginning in Hong Kong. On March 4, 1966, Canadian Pacific flight number 402 from Vancouver crashed on landing at Haneda Airport, Tokyo due to poor weather. Death toll was 52 passengers and crew. About a week earlier Tom and I had made that same journey.

                              SINCE HE IS PRESENT NOW!

Since He is present now leading and guiding the Church of Christ, His gifts will have to be in operation until He is taken away. "And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues." (1 Cor. 12:28)

Since God has set these gifts in the church and has nowhere withdrawn them, who are these ignorant man-ordained preachers and teachers who try to tie the hands of God and change His Word! They are in grave danger for tampering with the eternal Word of God! I further believe that the Holy Bible is the infallible, only, authoritative, divine and holy Word of God.

I give honour, praise, glory and worship unto Almighty God our Heavenly Father in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, reverencing the blessed Holy Spirit and standing on God's Holy Word. This is my stand, so help me God! Amen.

                               CHRIST IS WORKING MIRACLES!
