GOD GIVE US MEN- Not Cowards
By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D. (1965)
Great advances have been made almost everywhere in the world. In the Scientific field, knowledge has increased many times over until man of today finds himself in a most exciting and almost dangerous position, because of the tremendous power at his fingertips.
Almost unbelievable strides have been accomplished in the fields of medicine and education. Industry has zoomed ahead and cities have blossomed out in record time and become great metropolitan areas.
Factories are building better automobiles, aeroplanes and vehicles of transportation; while efficient engineers have built some of the greatest highways ever know. Better methods of pasteurization of milk, preservation of foods and refrigeration have come to us to use and enjoy. The standard of living in the Free World is exceptionally high and most people earn a comfortable living.
However, we see the mammoth rise of drunkenness, immorality, juvenile delinquency, sexual perversion, and disregard for authority, along with agnosticism, modernism and atheism on our university campuses and even in our pulpits.
Yes, SIN with a capital S has made inroads everywhere and the devil seems to be having a hey-day as he has run rampant, especially these last few years. The Bible says, “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall raise up a standard against him.” (Isaiah 59:19)
However, God needs vessels to work through to raise up this standard, and dealing with human beings as in days gone by, He has had a hard time finding many who would answer the call to battle, and fight against the wicked enemy of our soul. Instead of the church rising to meet the challenge of a lost, sinful world, the church has slumped into the “comfortable pew” and is taking a relaxing course of “sitting out this battle” for so few want to get involved in actual warfare with apostasy and evil.
NEED BRAVE, LIONED-HEARTED
MEN TODAY IN THE PULPITS
O God, give us brave, lion hearted men today in the pulpits of our land to cry out against the sinfulness, apostasy and wickedness in high places and low, also in the pulpit and pew. May God give us men like Daniel of old, who was not afraid of the hungry lions but rather stood up to the evil men of his day and upheld the Name of his Lord God Jehovah. Give us men like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego who wouldn’t bow to heathen
idols and who had enough faith in their God that they were not afraid of the fiery furnace. The fear of God was greater in their lives than the fear of man. Their faith defeated their enemies as it quenched the violence of fires. (Hebrews 11:34)
O God, give us men today like Joseph, who would not fall for carnality, lust and adultery but rather than lower the standard of the child of God to take in sinful practices, cried out, “How can I do this great wickedness and sin against God?” (Genesis 39:9) Although Joseph was lied about by Potiphar’s wife and cast in prison, God was with him and bringing him out in due time, vindicated Joseph, making him third ruler in the Kingdom of Egypt. Hallelujah!
O God, give us preachers today, like the great prophet Micah who declared, “Truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord and of might and judgment to show unto the children of Israel their transgression with the House of Jacob their sin. (Micah 3:8)
Micah said that all the prophets of the land had backslid and forsaken the counsel and Word of God and were prophesying what people wanted to hear. They had compromise and sold out to the devil’s crowd. Perhaps the persecution got too rough and so they took the easy way out.
Jesus said, “If they hated me, they will hate you.” (John 15:18-20). If they have reviled me, they will revile and persecute you.” Jesus said, “As my Father hath sent me, so send I you as sheep among the wolves.” (John 15:18-20) “If they have called ‘The Master’ a devil – how much more shall they call them of his household.” (Matthew 10:25)
Is it any wonder full gospel and Pentecostal believers are persecuted and ridiculed by the devil’s crowd and even by some so-called Christians?
The Bible says, “They that live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” (2 Tim. 3:12) If you are a Christian and have no persecution, take stock of your life and see whether you still be in the faith (2 Cor. 13:5), because if you are not getting some persecution from the devil’s crowd (inside or outside of the church matters not), then you can’t be doing too much for His Kingdom.
However, if the “old wicked one” – through his friends and co-labourers – is giving you a rough time, and you are being persecuted (2 Cor. 4:8-9), then the Scripture advises to rejoice and leap for joy. (Luke 6:22-23)
Perhaps the prophets in Micah’s day were bought off with high positions, a large salary, a luxurious home, a retirement income and other conveniences…or possibly by influential government leaders who swept them off their feet by the pomp and ceremony.
All the prophets in Micah’s day had taken the easy way out and the "fear of man had become a snare.” (Proverbs 29:25). The love of money had corrupted them (1 Timothy 6:10) and they had erred, perhaps because “the applause of man was greater than the praise of God”. (John 12:43)
But Micah, the man of God, DID NOT WAVER, he did not bend, nor did he compromise one inch. He stood true to his calling and to God. He did not give up the “old time religion for something newer or more fashionable, and God came on the scene, bringing judgment to the backslidden prophets and a message to His people, to repent and return to God.
Here was one who would not deviate from the truth, and God always has a few that love and fear Him enough to be His spokesmen in every wicked age.
Today we are living in a similar day in which Micah lived. Many ministers have compromised and have taken the way of least resistance, been bought off or silenced by the modernistic church leaders of their denomination, by rich, sin laden church members or cold, dry deacon boards; and thousands of preachers who once preached the great truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ are now preaching a soft sell gospel, a social gospel, a bloodless gospel or a modernistic gospel.
What a pity and shame that this has happened in our generation, before our very eyes. Truly we are living in the ‘End Time’ and Jesus Christ, the only true Saviour of the world is coming soon! (Revelation 22:12)
FALLING AWAY FROM TRUTH!
St. Paul warns of the great falling away from the Truth. “Let no man deceive you by any means, for that day shall not come except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.” (2 Thess. 2:3)
Jude declares there will be mockers in the ‘END OF TIME’ who will joke at the validity of Christ’s return. (Jude 8). 1 Timothy 4:1-4 records that “in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.” The Bible says they would DEPART FROM (after having believed and preached it, they would depart from it and oppose it – giving heed to seducing spirits).
God’s word warns that “in the last days perilous times shall come – the people would have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof.” (2 Tim. 3:1-8) They would be going through the motions of religious exercises and ceremony but denying the experience of salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ and the Baptism of the Holy Ghost for power. (Acts 1:8)
In 2 Tim. 3:13-16, Paul admonishes Timothy, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and worse, deceiving, and being deceived”, and then goes on to instruct Timothy to continue in the things he has learned and been assured of – the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make one wise unto salvation (verses 14 & 15).
The Bible says, “ALL Scripture is given by inspiration of God” (2 Tim. 3:16), not just some, but ALL of God’s Word.
The Holy Scripture is absolutely true. Paul instructs Timothy to preach the Word – not some theory, new curriculum or new thought, but to preach the Word of the Living God, and again “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the Truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” (2 Tim. 4:2-4)
THE GREAT FALLING AWAY
The great falling away is here now- with entire denominations of Christian Churches turning their backs on Hoy Scripture, declaring it fallible and contradictory despising the great truth of the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ. The story of the Magi and the star that led them is also a myth, they say.
Here is an excellent example of carnal, proud, unholy men agreeing with atheists and enemies of Jesus Christ and God's infallible Word in a brazen attempt to destroy the Holy Scripture. Have they no Fear of God? Such pride and rank Stupidity!
According to the new United Church curriculum “the first eleven chapters in Genesis, which tell of the creation of the world and of mankind by God and the account of Noah and the flood is a fable or myth.”
The new United Church Curriculum which is being taught to thousands of children denies the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ, leaving the inference that Joseph or some other man was the father of Jesus Christ – making Mary promiscuous rather than a chaste, godly virgin.
Have you heard of such sacrilege? And this is not coming from some atheistic paper but from the writings of, and the pulpits of the largest Protestant Church in Canada. This same curriculum denies the miracles in the Bible, rejects the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and ridicules the ascension and second coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Read what Rev. Ben Smilie, United Church minister and University of Saskatchewan chaplain has to say about our fundamentalist beliefs in the Scripture. Regina Leader Post article entitled ‘A Massive Irrelevancy’ by Tom Jarvis: “The Toronto Telegram’ printed it in full, with the somewhat shocking passage in large type which speaks of fundamentalist belief in “clay-made man, a floating zoo, an amphibious-footed Jesus, a son of God who was a home brew artist, and an ascension that looks like a Cape Kennedy blast-off.”
Have you read anything so blasphemous and anti-Christian? Not coming from some communist writer but from an ordained Minister of a Protestant Church.
Let the moderator of the United Church of Canada speak for himself. This article from the Saskatoon Star Phoenix, June 5, 1954, “Howse says literal believers in Bible lacks understanding.” - The moderator of the United Church of Canada says Christians who believe literally in all of the “metaphors and imageries” of the Bible exhibit “lack of understanding.”
The RT. Rev. Ernest Howse of Toronto, in an interview Thursday, said that one of the most significant religious trends today is the movement away from “medieval imagery and hypocrisy. Dr. Howse, who had been in Banff for a meeting of the United Church’s Alberta Conference, said that people should not take literally such events as Christ’s physical resurrection and the virginity of Mary. The moderator said the United Church’s new curriculum which allows for liberal interpretation of the Bible, is “really nothing new at all.” There is nothing in the curriculum which was not accepted when I was in college 30 years ago. “If people are shocked by it, then it is evident our ministers have not been adequately teaching their congregations.”
The Sept 2, 1954 edition of the Christian Beacon has aptly exposed teachings in the Methodist Church:
“Here is, indeed, the finest kind of documentation to show how far the Methodist Church has gotten away from belief in the Bible and a proclamation of what the Bible teaches. The Bible has here been rearranged; great sections of it are considered to be legends and myths; and the Methodists have gone so far as actually to reverse the plain teaching of the Bible concerning Elijah.
We read, “Undoubtedly there is a legendary element in some of the stories about him; but Elijah is certainly an historical figure, and the narratives of his life were probably written down not more than 100 years after his death. Those elements in the saga that are legendary rather than historically accurate serve their purpose…
“So, somewhere along the line, we have to eliminate that which is “legendary rather than historically accurate.” And in regard to Elijah we are told that he certainly was a historical figure, but when it comes to the account of his death, we must eliminate the legendary aspect of it – the chariot of fire, the whirlwind, and his rapture into Heaven. So we must pronounce him dead. And this is what the unbelief in the Methodist Church has done in its Sunday school lesson for Sept 19, 1965.”
The following article, entitled “United Church will expose tall stories in the Bible”, from the Winnipeg Tribune: The Bible may say so, but as far as the United Church of Canada is concerned, David didn’t kill Goliath and Noah never saw an ark. And the youngsters of the church will be told this, beginning in the fall, as the United Church introduces a radically new teaching program in its Sunday schools. An official of the church in Manitoba expects little opposition when a start is made in September to teach children that the contest of David and Goliath is a tall story, that the first 11 chapters of the Bible are myth, that Noah never built a ark, that the Virgin birth may be the product of a biblical mistranslation, and the Christmas star and angelic chorus which announced Jesus’ birth are merely legends.
Rev. John Klassen, field secretary of Christian education in the Manitoba Conference of the church says: “Most Sunday school teachers will welcome these changes because they’ll no longer have to teach things they never believed in themselves.”
The new curriculum developed by the church at a cost of one million dollars, and six years of preparation, will be introduced this September in the 250 – 300 United Churches in Manitoba and North-western Ontario.
Mr. Klassen says opposition to the new curriculum, if it comes, is expected from those church members who believe in a literal translation of the Bible.
Below are excerpts from an article entitled “Churchmen View the new Morality”, Edmonton Journal, Saturday, May 29, 1965: Extra-marital sexual relations can sometimes be tolerated if they are motivated by love, says a United Church of Canada official. Rev. J.M. Dickinson, director of pastoral counselling services, was discussing the “new morality at a church lecture group here Wednesday night. The new morality, he said, stresses a life in a freer society in which one tries to understand the motives behind a man’s action rather than condemn the action alone. “Many extra-marital love affairs must be more graceful in the eyes of God compared to the sometimes sterile, beastly and destructive sex manifestations within the marriage”, said Mr. Dickinson.
SATAN HAS DECEIVED THEM!
Same Rule Applies – “Homosexuality, long regarded as one of the grossest of evils, for similar reasons should not be condemned,” he said. “One enters every situation in life asking, not as much what the moral law requires of me, or what is right and wrong, but rather what does genuine love for the other person require of me”, he said, “This type of thinking marked the end of any kind of moralism based on the authority of church scripture, in which man’s actions were neatly categorized into good and bad. From the point of view of the new morality, one tries to understand what effect a man’s action has had on him and what it has meant to him”, Mr. Dickson said.
In this case, there were good and evil dimensions to every individual action. But people should feel released from this ridiculous command to be a good little boy and God will love you. There has been a tendency for the church to be identified with this old morality”, he said. “It is important that the church be far more flexible as rules and regulations change in society.”
In a Sept, 1965 Star Weekly article, “Canada’s Atheists”, Dr. Marian Sherman, who is a professed atheist has this to say about the modern day ministers, “Religions inhibit growth. They divide people into little groups with fixed ideas that are sacred, and so can’t be changed. However, we are entering an area of co-operation and science, and I think that religions will evolve out of existence.”
Already wide-spread changes in traditional patterns of belief are causing major upheaval, and thoughtful reassessment, within the Christian Churches themselves. In a just published national survey, conducted by the board of evangelism and social services of the United Church of Canada, it was found that a representative sample of 1,955 regular church-goers, occasional church-goers and infrequent church goers from 209 congregations, 16% did not believe in a personal God; 19% did not accept the divinity of Christ; 35% did not accept the Virgin birth of Christ; 44% did not accept the idea of personal existence after death; and 60% rejected the Biblical account of miracles. Perhaps even more startling: Rev. E.M. Howse, moderator of the United Church of Canada, recently stated that he himself did not personally believe in the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
Moderator Howse, according to His own words does not believe in the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead!
The Bible says, “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is anti-Christ, that denieth the Father and the Son: (1 John 2:22). Anyone who denies the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead denies that Jesus is the Christ, and is anti-Christ and a lost soul on his road to Hell.
The Bible states that Jesus Christ was “declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.” (Romans 1:4) The resurrection from the dead was the final proof that set Jesus Christ apart as the Son of God. Hallelujah.
As a minister of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, I must, as Paul of old, warn you of these and other deceivers (2 Tim. 3:13) who have turned their ears from the Truth and have turned unto fables, not enduring sound doctrine (2 Tim. 3:3-4)
I hereby take a public stand against those enemies of the cross (Phil 3:18), workers of unrighteousness (2 Cor. 11:13-15) and false teachers (2 Tim. 3:8) and according to the Holy Scriptures, I hold up the Word of God, the Holy Bible as the True and Living Word of God. ( 2 Tim. 3:14-16)
O God, give us men today like Jeremiah who gave forth the Word with compassion, as he felt the displeasure of God at the sins of the people and in tears invited them back to God. Jesus, the Son of God, wept over Jerusalem (Luke 13:34) and with strong crying He agonized over last souls (Heb 5:7) and was moved with compassion upon the sick and sinful and ministered to them. (Matt. 9:36)
Paul, the great apostle writes how he failed not, by the space of three years to warm men and women night after night with tears (Acts 20:31). The Bible says, “They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.: (Psalms 126:5-6)
SHOWDOWN AT SUNSET
I love the words of the song, “Give us More Elijahs to Pray the Fire Down.” How we need more courageous men to stand against the apostates today as Elijah did against wicked King Ahab and the woman Jezebel, who was a false prophetess. (Rev. 2:20)
Elijah stood on Mount Carmel (1 Kings 18:19-39) challenging the people to choose between Baal – the false god – and the Lord, the Truth and Living God. Then he made the acid test to see ‘Who was God?’ He emphasized, “And the God that answereth by fire, let him be God.”
The gods of the heathen failed to bring a response, but the ‘God of the Universe’ brought the answer, and He answered by fire. Hallelujah! I’ve often said, “I do not serve the dead gods many preachers serve today – The God I serve lives forever in power and greatness – and never changes. The Jesus I love and worship is the Living Christ who walked out of the tomb so many years ago, ascended into Heaven, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on High (Heb. 1:3) and will come again soon to receive us unto Himself. (John 14:3)
The Holy Record says, when Elijah took his stand against the apostasy, God came to his aid and honoured his faith, fulfilled His own Word, bringing men to their knees in repentance and faith. (1 Kings 18:39)
Oh, how we need young men today like Elisha of Bible times who rose to the challenge – He became master of the situation and received an answer to his prayer in a Double Portion Anointing upon his life. (2 Kings 2:9, 13-15) When he knew his master Elijah would be taken from him, the young man, was alert and ready for action. When Elijah was taken up into Heaven by a chariot of fire and the mantle of the prophet drifted back to earth, Elisha tore off his own garment, picked up that mantle and with anticipation he walked up to the River Jordon, smote the river saying, “Where is the Lord God of Elijah?”
The young man was expecting something to happen when he smote the waters with that mantle, and something did happen – The waters parted just as he had expected! Hallelujah!
Jesus said, John the Baptist was more than a prophet and there had not risen anyone greater than this servant of God. (Matt. 11:11) John the Baptist said of himself, “I am a voice crying in the wilderness” (John 1:23) telling people to repent (Matt. 3:2). He did not mince words but came right to the point and thousands heard his message turning to God, and were baptized, confessing their sins. (Matt. 3:5-6)
O GOD, SEND MEN AMONG US TODAY PREACHING THE SAME MESSAGE JOHN THE BAPTIST PREACHED!
Stephen, the first martyr, preached boldly and demonstrated true Christianity among the people, teaching and preaching the Word, the Lord working with him confirming His Word with great wonders and miracles (Acts 6:8). Stephen was a Deacon in the early church. (Acts 6:3-5)
Oh, that we could have deacons like this in our churches today!
Stephen preached so powerfully that they stoned him to death, but the Word of God he had preached multiplied and grew, and God was magnified. (Acts 7:59) His death was so glorious; no doubt many were saved watching him die.
St. Peter stood up without fear, and called upon the murderers of Jesus Christ to get right with God and to repent of their sins. And 3,000 souls gave their lives to God that day. (Acts 2:23-37) The result of this bold preaching was the conversion of 3,000 souls to Jesus Christ.
History is crowned with brave, courageous Heaven-directed and Spirit filled men who have acted and moved as God has led them, and as a result we have the Word of God among us today! We think of the great teacher John Hus who was burned at the stake by the hands of a wicked pope. John Hus had been given a guarantee of safe conduct which turned out to be a lie.
As he was tied to the stake, John Hus cried, “The same Gospel I have taught, preached and lived by, I am ready, willing and happy to die for.” John Hus’s body was burned at the stake as the great papal crime was committed; however the truth of the Gospel marched on.
Martin Luther, the great reformer said 100 years later, “The Gospel that we have now has been handed down to us by Hus, at the cost of his blood.” Where would you and I be today if it had not been for John Hus and Martin Luther who stood against the lies, falsehoods and sins of that time?
O God, give us more men like Martin Luther, who motivated by the Spirit of God, defied wicked religious and political leaders”, nailed the ’95 thesis’ on the church door at Wittenburg, condemning the evils of the Roman Catholic church, calling the papacy the anti-Christ (Smalchad Art II, Art IV 9-10) and burning the papal bull! Praise the Lord!
Space will not permit me to write of all the great men of faith and power who were so mightily used of God in bringing men to Christ.
However, I must tell of John Wesley, that great believer in “Holiness unto God” (1 Thess. 4:7) who preached and lived so effectively that he turned England back to God. D.L. Moody underwent ridicule and was despised because he believed in the power of the Holy Spirit and was called “Crazy Moody”; termed a fanatic and received very little support from the churches in Great Britain, because they said “His followers speak with other tongues”, but he pressed in and had great revivals all the same and turned thousands to Christ.
There are however, some sad cases in the Bible, of men who disobeyed God and sold out to the devil’s crowd.
Jonah disobeyed God and got into real trouble before he repented and took God’s message of Judgment to Nineveh. The Lord had to chastise him severely before he was willing to go – However, when he did finally obey God, great blessings came to Nineveh as the entire city repented and turned to God. (Jonah 1:2)
Perhaps someone reading this message, like Jonah, has been called of God, but has disobeyed. Repent immediately and obey, and you will see His blessing upon your life and that of others. Esau was careless and irreverent concerning the great gift of God, and sold his birthright for a message of pottage.
Many ministers today are preaching just for what they can get out of it – just for a living – to fill their stomachs. Paul calls preachers like this “belly preachers.” (Phil. 3:19) Others have sold their spiritual birthright of true Christianity for an affiliation with the World Council of Churches or some local ministerial group and have compromised their stand on the Bible, the miraculous, holiness and other vital subjects, to gain favour of some denomination. Please repent before it is too late for you, as it was for Esau. (Hebrews 12:16-17)
Then there are the Gehazis (2 Kings 5:20-27) and Judas’ (Luke 22:3-6) who, for some fancy clothes or a few dollars, personal greed or the love of money, have sold their Lord and the principles they hold dear because they have been deceived by the demon of lust and greed. If you are such a one, make your way back to God quickly as did the Prodigal son. (Luke 15:17-20)
And there are the Demas’ who forsake Christ and the Gospel because the love of the world is so strong in their hearts. (2 Tim. 4:10) The Bible says, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” (1 Jn. 2:15) Jesus said, “No man can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one, and love the other, or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.’ (Matt. 6:24)
The Word of God says Moses made a choice to serve God. He turned his back upon the riches of Egypt because he realized the greatness of God’s promises and rewards. (Heb. 11:24-26) Also Daniel “purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank, therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.” (Dan. 1:8)
Both Moses and Daniel made up their minds that they were through with the world and no one could change their minds; they were determined to serve God. You must do the same!
HAS GIVEN US THE TOOLS!
Sir Winston Churchill made this statement during the 2nd world war, “Give us the tools and we will finish the job.” God has given us the tools with which to right against Satan and has assured us a victory every time because Jesus Christ defeated the devil, death, hell and the grave and emerged conqueror, forevermore!
Jesus said, “Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) Jesus also said, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Matt. 28:18). In Luke 10:19 he said, “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.”
We are in a real warfare against the devil for we read in Ephesians 6:10-18, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rules of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places”, and our weapons against him are real.
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds, casting down of imaginations and every high thing which exalteth itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into captivity every thought unto the knowledge of Christ.” (2 Cor. 10:4-5)
CHRIST IS THE ANSWER!
I began this message by saying that everything has advanced. Power seems to be the order of the day as everything has far more power than previously – automobiles have larger engines and more power. Household gadgets and appliances are the very latest in design with maximum power necessary to do the job, mankind has harnessed the great atomic and hydrogen power available through God’s mighty creation.
In everything we have advanced and had an increase of power, except in the church. In the church, instead of going forward, we have gone backward. Instead of being spiritually alive, the church seems to have almost died. How blind spiritual leaders are and have been, not to realize that the great power Christ put within the Church has never been taken away.
John Wesley affirmed that “miracles were to have been in the church throughout the entire church age but were lost because of unbelief.”
How true, and we are making use of this great power to prove to people that God is love and God lives today, as in Philip’s time (Acts 8:5-8); when people see the miracles they will believe.
We have personally seen hundreds of miracles and healing in our crusades through this ministry. I know the God of Elijah, Moses and Daniel lives today!
Jesus 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.” (Acts 1:8)
Take advantage of this great opportunity, to be filled with the Holy Ghost and receive power from on High to be an effective soul winner for Jesus Christ. If you are a sinner, ask God to forgive you and He will pardon and cleanse you. If you are sick, Jesus will heal you now as you put your trust in Him. “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.” (Acts 16:31)
