week we have had the privilege of talking with a legendary evangelist Dr.
Max Solbrekken. He held a series of meetings for the whole week in
one of our meeting halls in Hokksund, Norway, and has prayed for people to
be healed and delivered.
is 79 years old, he looks healthy and strong and is still traveling all
over the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ just a she has done it for
the last 50 years.
asked Max to tell us how he got saved.
was born in Canada from a Norwegian Parents who love the Lord and were
Christians." They were not Pentecostals and had never heard of
the work of the Holy Spirit. One time my dad got very sick, and his
sickness was identified to be an illness in his gall bladder. He was
admitted in a hospital and was waiting for a surgery. While he was
there, he heard a voice speaking to him in Norwegian that said to him,
"Go home and listen to Oral Roberts on the Radio."
Dad did not know that God could speak to him in that way, but still he
decided to obey the voice as it was very convincing. While he
listened to the radio program he was completely healed and some time later
while he was praying alone he got baptized in the Spirit.
THROUGH THE BLOOD
By Pastor Max
Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, It is finished: and He
bowed His head, and gave up the ghost." (John 19: 30)
shouted VICTORY from the Cross! He was speaking in Greek. The word tetelestai
comes from the Greek verb teleo, which has three essential
meanings: 'To finish something, to bring something to an end; to
fulfill something; to pay that which is owed!
had FINISHED His work of Redemption. The fountain was now open for sin and
uncleanness! Christ's cleansing and healing blood was available for lost,
sick, suffering and perishing souls. He had completed His Mission of Mercy
and would return to His Father, and pour out the Gift of the Holy Spirit
upon His followers!
Bible states: “But Christ being come an High Priest of good things to
come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that
is to say, not of this building; neither by the blood of bulls and goats,
but by His own BLOOD He entered in once into the Holy Place, having obtained Eternal
Redemption, for us.” (Hebrews 9: 11,12)
THE GREAT DAY
a year on the Great Day of Atonement, only the High Priest could enter the
Holy of Holies in the Temple to make an atonement for Israel's sins, by
sprinkling the blood of the sacrificial goat on the Mercy Seat.
the High Priest was allowed into the Holy of Holies where GOD the Supreme
Judge dealt with the sins of the nation of Israel. Sin had to be paid for
to satisfy the Laws of Divine Justice in the Courts of Heaven.
law said; “The soul that sinneth, it shall surely die,” (Ezekiel), but
another law stated: “It is the
Blood that maketh atonement for the soul.” (Leviticus 17:
11). A sinless Substitute could shoulder the blame and die for
the sinner. Innocent animals, who had no eternal souls and no knowledge of
sin could take the place of the offender.
on the Great Day of Atonement,
all of Israel would gather outside the Temple, waiting to hear if God had
forgiven their sins for another year. The High Priest had to follow a very
strict protocol in fulfilling his personal life, ministry and duties
before and during his ministration.
were attached to his robe so the waiting Israelites could hear that he
were still alive. If the High Priest failed to execute his duty perfectly,
he would immediately die, therefore he wore a rope around his left ankle,
so he could be retrieved from that holy place if necessary.
was NO SEAT in the Holy of Holies and the High Priest stood continually
until he had finished his course of duty.
He spoke to no-one until his work was finished. He then, changed his
attire and went home.
our Heavenly High Priest, Jesus carried His Own Blood into the Holy of
Holies in Heaven! You will notice that on the third day after His
crucifixion, He appeared unto Mary, saying: “Touch Me not, for I am
not yet ascended to My Father: but go to My brethren, and say unto them, I
ascend unto My Father, and your Father; and to My God, and your
God.” (John 20: 17)
thereafter, He appeared unto the disciples: “Then the same day at
evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where
the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in
the midst…” (John 20: 19, 20)
His extreme agony on the 'cursed tree' Jesus prayed for those who had
crucified Him: “Father, forgive them for they know not what they
do...” (Luke 23: 34). As the rulers with the people and the soldiers
derided and mocked Him, one of the malefactors prayed: “Lord remember me
when Thou comest into Thy Kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily, I say
unto thee, TODAY shalt thou be
with Me in Paradise.” (Luke 23: 42, 43)
Bible says: “By the which will we are Sanctified through the offering
of the body of the Lord Jesus once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same
sacrifices, which can never take away sin:
WENT TO PARADISE!
this Man after He had offered one
sacrifice for sins forever, SAT
DOWN on the right hand of God... For by one sacrifice he had
perfected forever them that that are sanctified.” (Hebrews 10:
is a FALSE teaching that says that Jesus was tormented in Hell for three
days to pay for our sins. The
truth is that He went directly to Paradise,
called Abraham’s Bosom. (Luke 16: 19-31).
One Sacrifice was the perfect, pure and sanctified body of our Lord Jesus
if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling
the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh; How much more
shall the blood of Christ, Who through the Eternal Spirit, offered Himself
without spot to God, PURGE your conscience from dead works to serve the Living God?
Christ hath not entered into the Holy Places made with hands, which are
the figures of the True; but into Heaven itself, now to appear in the
presence of God for us....
NOW once in the end of the world hath He appeared to put away SIN, by the
sacrifice of Himself."
(Hebrews 9: 13, 14, 24, 26)
ENDED SATAN’S DOMINATION!
Christ stripped the devil of all his usurped power and influence over a
rebellious race whom he had deceived by his twisted, outright lies and
of Nazareth not only destroyed his power but also effectively DESTROYED
SATAN himself: "Forasmuch 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 (Satan) 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." (Hebrews 2:14)
praying during His water baptism, Jesus of Nazareth was filled with the
Holy Spirit. The Bible states: "The
Heaven was opened. And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a
dove upon Him, and a voice came from Heaven, which said, Thou art My
beloved Son; in Thy I am well pleased."
the strategic moment of the Holy Spirit entering Jesus of Nazareth, His
FATHER audibly and forcefully identifies with His incarnated (God in
human flesh) SON, stating hat the Lord Jesus is His Son with Whom He
was well pleased!
Immediately after His baptism, Jesus
of Nazareth was driven by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness to be
tempted of the devil. During His forty day fast, our Saviour was
continually tempted by the Evil One but was victorious each time.
of Nazareth filled with the Holy Spirit, commanded: "Get thee hence,
Satan, for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God and Him only
shalt Thou serve." (Matthew
4: 11). The devil had to obey the Son of God and angels came and
ministered unto Him.
His great victory over the devil, Jesus returned in the power of the Holy
Spirit and great miracles, signs and wonders occurred everywhere He went!
Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching
the Gospel of the Kingdom, and HEALING
all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. And His
fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto Him all SICK PEOPLE
that were taken with diverse diseases and torments and those which were
possessed with devils, and those that were lunatic and those which had the
palsy; and He healed them." (Matthew 4: 23, 24)
FULFILLED THE SCRIPTURES!
are 332 Old Testament Scriptures that deal with the coming Jewish Messiah.
Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled them all. Included in the 332 Old Testament
prophecies about the Messiah, there are 61 major prophecies. Dr. Peter
Stoner states: According to the Scientific Law of Probabilities, for
anyone but Jesus to have fulfilled only 8 of the major prophecies, he
would have only 1 chance out of 10 to the 17th power.
us to begin to understand that humungous number, Dr. Stoner gave this
explanation: Cover the entire State of Texas two feet deep, with American
silver dollars. Mark one silver dollar with an X. Stir it into the mix.
Blindfold a man, give him a cane and send him out to search for that
marked coin. He can take as long as he wants, walk as far as he likes, dig
as much as he likes. The first coin he chooses, must have the mark on it!
HAS PAID FOR OUR SALVATION!
old song says: "Iowed
a Debt I could not pay; He paid a Debt He did not owe, When Jesus died in
my place and took my all sins away."
Bible says: "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God;
Being justified freely by His GRACE
through the Redemption that is in Christ Jesus;
God hath set forth to be a propitiation (satisfaction, covering, expiation) through faith in His Blood, to
declare His righteousness for the remission of sins, that are passed,
through the forbearance of God." (Romans 3: 23-26)
being justified by FAITH we have
peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By Whom also we have access
by faith into this grace wherein we stand, that rejoice in hope of the
glory of God.
HOPE maketh not ashamed; because
the LOVE of God is shed abroad
in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. "For when we
were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners Christ
died for us. Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be
saved from wrath through Him." (Romans 5:1-9)
the wages of SIN is death but the gift of God is Eternal Life through
Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23)
AM BOUGHT WITH A PRICE!
Paul declared: "What, know ye not that your body is the temple of the
Holy Ghost which s in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own.
ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in
your spirit, which are God’s." (1
Corinthians 6:19, 20); "Ye are bought with a price; be
not ye servants of men." (1 Corinthians 7: 23)
this is good and acceptable in the sight of God, our Saviour; Who will
have all men to be saved, and to come into the knowledge of the truth. For
this is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ
Jesus; Who gave Himself a RANSOM
for all, to be testified in due time."
Christ gave Himself to redeem us all from Sin, Sickness, Hell and
Satan’s power. He purchased my soul with the blood of His cross!
God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever
believeth in Him should not perish, but have Everlasting Life."
JESUS CHRIST BORN?
Jesus Christ was
born to to destroy the works of the devil
however, was in the world because Satan (the devil). The devil, who
is the father of sin and death, had been cast out of Heaven and is called
the 'Prince of the power of the air', as well as the 'god of this world'.
(Ephesians 2:2; 2 Corinthians 4:4)
devil had caused previous disruption and chaos. (Genesis 1:2;
Ezekiel 28:13-19; Isaiah 14:12-17).
of Satan (the devils) rebellion and hatred for God, he had cunningly
planned his strategy by tempting Eve, with the Tree of Life, in the Garden
of Eden. (Genesis 3:1-6; Job 1:8-22; Job 2:1-8)
CALLED ADAM WHERE ART THOU?
great transgression had been made by Adam & Eve. Now, for the
moment of truth. How would Adam & Eve feel? Would they now
be wise as God, as Satan (the devil) had promised them? Was the
rebellion and disobedience towards God worth it? No - a thousand
& Eve's eyes were opened. But, what did they see? Adam
& Eve saw their own vulnerability, stupidity, weaknesses, sin and
nakedness. Fear stalked and filled their souls. They had never
felt fear before sin entered their lives. They realized they were
naked, vulnerable and inadequate. Now, they realized they must face
the music, and meet God alone.
where was Satan (the devil)? Where was the evil one who had been
their wise tempter such a short time ago?
course, the devil was gone, to gloat over his victory. I'm sure that
the devil, the liar and deceiver was not far away, probably hiding behind
a tree, excitedly waiting to see the inevitable outcome of their sin.
The inevitable outcome, the separation, dis-fellowshipping of God and His
special creation, man.
DEVIL REJOICED OVER ADAM & EVE'S FEAR & TERROR
satisfaction filled the devil's heart as he observed Adam & Eve's
plight, their complete confusion, perplexity, fear and terror.
& Eve heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the
cool of the day. God said, "Adam, where art thou? ADAM,
WHERE ART THOU?"
God called Adam that day, He is still calling you and me. "John,
where are you? Mary, where are you?"
answered, "We are hiding, we are naked, we are afraid"!
God questioned, "Who told you that you were naked? You were
clothed with My glory. Have you eaten of the fruit that I forbad
gave a typical answer from a typical sinner! Adam said, "The
woman you gave me, she gave me of the fruit. It is Eve's fault, she
gave me the forbidden fruit and it's really Your fault, Lord, because You
gave me the woman".
LIKES TO PASS THE BLAME TO SOMEONE ELSE
seems normal for people to justify themselves. It's much easier to
pass the buck, or to blame someone else rather than take the blame,
saying, "I made a mistake, I am wrong, please forgive me."
similar to the preacher who enjoyed portraying woman in a negative way.
One Sunday morning as he was preaching on 'The Fall of Man', he vigorously
attacked Eve. If Eve, the weaker vessel, hadn't fallen, the world
wouldn't be in the mess it's now in. The preacher nailed Jezebel and
Delilah. "Women are the ruination of many good men", he
the close of the service, the minister stood at the door shaking hands.
Some complimented him on a wonderful sermon, while others were glad to get
out the door.
tall lady shook his hand and she wasn't smiling. She squeezed his
hand until he said, "Woman, you are hurting me". She
looked him square in the eye and asked, "Pastor, what is the
telephone number of the Garden of Eden"?
answered, "I don't know what you are talking about". She
squeezed his hand again until he said, "Ouch". She spoke
again, "Pastor, do you know the telephone number of the Garden of
Eden"? He answered, "Woman, I do not and by the way you
are hurting me." She said, "Well, I know the telephone
number of the Garden of Eden. It's Adam 8-1-2", and she let go
of his hand and left.
ate one too! Eve wasn't the only one to blame. Adam also
disobeyed God, but really the blame goes into further - straight to the
evil one, the devil (Satan).
DEVIL IS TO BLAME
didn't argue with Adam. He turned to Eve and said, "Woman,
what is this that thou hast done?" Eve made more sense than
her husband. She put the blame where it belong. "The
serpent beguiled me and I did eat."
agree with Eve. Satan (the devil) is the culprit. The devil is
to blame for all the sin, fear, heartbreak, divorce, alcoholism, drug
addiction and juvenile delinquency. He is the architect of all that
is evil, wicked and destructive. Riots, anarchy, thievery, murder,
sickness, disease and war are the outcroppings and results of his plans,
goals, purposes and seduction.
(the devil) IS TO BLAME. Shout it loud and clear - the devil is the
CALLED THE DEVIL A LAIR & MURDERER
called him a liar, deceiver, murdered and thief. (John 8:44; John
10:10) Our Lord said, "The thief cometh not for to steal,
kill and destroy. I am come that they might have life and more
abundantly." (John 10:10)
- THE DEVIL IS TO BLAME FOR ALL SIN
said, "THE SEED OF THE WOMAN SHALL BRUISE THE SERPENT'S HEAD."
God called out "Because thou hast done this, cursed art thou among
all the beasts of the field. Upon thy belly shalt thou go all the
days of thy life..." (Genesis 3:14-15)
is noteworthy that some scientists believe that at one time serpents and
snakes walked upright and didn't crawl on their bellies as today.
I will put enmity between thee and the woman and between thy seed (the
wicked) and her seed (the righteous). It (Jesus, the seed of the
woman) shall bruise thy head..."
DEFEATED THE DEVIL WITH HIS DEATH ON THE CROSS
Golgotha's Hill, Jesus defeated the devil. When Jesus paid the
supreme sacrifice for the sins of the world, and rose again from the dead.
He had delivered the death blow to Satan.
Jesus cried, "It is finished", He had defeated Satan (the devil)
and since that very hour the blood of Jesus Christ washes away all the
sins of the repentant sinner, and His stripes bring healing to the
believing, sick person..
Bible says, "He (Jesus) was wounded for our transgressions, He was
bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him;
and by His stripes we are healed." (Isaiah 53:5)
DID JESUS COME INTO THE WORLD?
Bible says, "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
Bible says: "Neither is there salvation through any other, for
there is none other name under Heaven given among men whereby you may be
saved, but by the Name of Jesus"! (Acts 4:12) "There is
one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus." (1
CAME THAT WE MIGHT HAVE LIFE
said, "I am come that they might have life and have it more
abundantly." (John 10:10) And St. John stated:
"For this purpose was the Son of God manifested that He might destroy
the works of the devil". (1 John 3:8) The Scripture says, "When
the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with
devils: and He cast out the spirits with His word, and healed all that
were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the
prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our
sicknesses." (Matthew 8:16-17)
DID ISAIAH PROPHESY?
it and hear it well: "But He was wounded for our transgressions, He
was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement of our peace was
upon Him (Jesus) and by His stripes we are healed."! (Isaiah 53:5)
Bible says, "Who His own self (Jesus) bare our sins in His own
body on the tree (cross) that we, being dead to sins should live unto
righteousness, by Whose stripes ye were (at the cross) healed"!
(1 Peter 2:24) "He that believeth on the Son hath
everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life;
but the wrath of God abideth on him." (John 3:36)
IS ONLY ONE WAY - JESUS CHRIST IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH & THE LIFE
said, "I am the way, the truth and the life and no man cometh unto
the Father but by Me." (John 14:6) Again our blessed
Saviour said, "I am the door, by Me if any man enter in, he
shall be saved..." (John 10:9) Again He said, "Come
unto Me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you
rest." (Matthew 11:28)
DID JESUS HAVE TO DIE?
Bible says, "Without the
shedding of blood there is no remission for sins."
(Hebrews 9:22) "It is the blood that maketh atonement for
the soul." (Leviticus 17:11) Again, "The
soul that sinneth it shall surely die." (Ezekiel
Old Testament times, an animal - without spot or blemish - would be
sacrificed, spilling his blood. (Atonement means "covering")
AS THE LAMB DIED ON THE ALTER IN THE TEMPLE, JESUS THE LAMB OF GOD, DIED
ON THE CROSS TO PAY FOR THE SINS OF THE WORLD.
Scripture says, "If we walk in
the light as He is in the light we have fellowship one with the other, and
the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin." (John
is the Lamb of God, Who was slain for our sins! "One of the
elders saith unto me, weep not: behold the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the
Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven
seals thereof. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the
throne...stood a lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven
eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
He came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the
throne. And when He had taken the book, the four beasts and four and
twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps
and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints."
they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to
open the seals thereof: for thou was slain, and hast redeemed us to God by
thy blood of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;....Worthy
is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and
strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing."
every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth,
and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying,
Blessing, and honour, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne,
and unto the Lamb for ever and ever."
SPOILED SATAN'S KINGDOM
Bible says, "And you, being dead in your sins and the
uncircumcision of your flesh, hath He quickened together with Him, having
forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances
that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way,
nailing it to His cross, and having spoiled principalities and powers, He
made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it." (Colossians
2:12-15) Oh, Praise God.

He is living, whatever men may say...
I see His hand of mercy....I hear His voice of cheer....And just
the time I need Him....He's always near.

He walks with me and talks with me, along life's narrow way.

You ask me how I know He lives....He lives...within my heart.
power! What might! What strength, and what great ability Jesus
has. St. Paul brings it out so graphically in his epistles.
Drink in these truth and be set free and filled with all knowledge, joy
and Holy Ghost power.
eyes of your understanding being enlightened, that ye may know what is the
hope of His calling, and what the riches of glory of His inheritance in
the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward
who believe, according to the working of His mighty power, which He
wrought in Christ, when he raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His
own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and
power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in
this world, but also in that which is to come. And hath put all
things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the
Bible says, "Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly
above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in
us." (Ephesians 3:20)
Paul writes, "Who (God) hath delivered us from the power of
darkness (Satan) and hath translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son
(Jesus Christ) IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, even the
forgiveness of sins." (Colossians 1:13)
referring to Jesus, John the Baptist made the startling statement, "Behold
the Lamb of God which taketh away from the sins of the world."
(John 1:29) To this agree the angel's words to Joseph, "Ye
shall call His name Jesus (Salvation) for He shall save (salvage) His
people from their sins." (Matthew 1:21)
this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the
form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself
of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in
the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, He humbled
Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name is above every
name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven
and in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should
confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
DAY IS THE SCRIPTURE FULFILLED
book of Isaiah is called the "Gospel of the Old Testament".
The 53rd chapter prophecies the death of Messiah Who would bring
forgiveness and healing to His people. Isaiah 7:14 speaks of His
virgin birth; Isaiah 9:6 speaks of His Kingship and the fact that He is
very God; Isaiah 28:11-12 foretells the gift of the Holy Ghost, and the
end-time phenomena of glossalalia, or "speaking with other
tongues" as a gift of God to bring stability, rest and peaceful
strength to the Church in times of pressure and tension. Isaiah
61:1-3 prophecies the Gospel Age of His salvation with forgiveness,
healing, deliverance and joy!
he came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up: and, as His custom was,
He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read.
And there was delivered unto Him the book of the prophet Esaias. And
when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written,
Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because he hath anointed Me to preach the
gospel to the poor; He hath sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach
deliverance to the captives, the recovering of sight to the blind, to set
at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the
He closed the book, and He gave it again to the minister and sat down.
And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on Him.
And He began to say unto them, This day is the scripture fulfilled in your
ears." (Luke 4:16--21)
entered the synagogue in Nazareth and read from Isaiah the Prophet.
He ended the reading by saying, "This day is this scripture
fulfilled in your ears". He declared Himself the Son of God and
Jewish Messiah by those words.
year of Jubilee could not begin until first the Great Day of Atonement had
taken place. He would die on the cross like the lambs died on the
alters of Jerusalem because He is the Lamb of God which taketh away the
sins of the world." (John 1:29)
would fulfill the Old Testament 'Great Day of Atonement' when the high
priest entered into the Holy of holies with the blood of the sacrificial
animal. Jesus was not only the sacrifice but also the high priest
Who carried His own blood into the Holy of holies in Heaven itself.
scapegoat (Leviticus 16:7-21) is also a type of Jesus carrying away our
sins. He is our substitute! Every 50th year Israel celebrated
the 'fear of Jubilee' when all the prisoners and slaves were freed and
debts were forgiven. This is a picture of the Gospel Age when
everyone is set free by the blood of Christ and His everlasting Gospel!
THEY WERE OFFENDED IN HIM.
dear friend, Let me admonish you to receive him into your heart and life
as your Lord, Saviour, Redeemer, Healer, Baptizer and King.
CAME TO SEEK & SAVE THE LOST
said, "I am come to seek and save that which was lost." (Luke
19:10) You are included in that number, for "All have sinned and
come short of the glory of God". (Romans 3:23) You say, 'I
cannot live a Christian life in my own strength'!
are absolutely right. You can't do it in your own power, but He will
change you and give you the power to live for Him.
Bible say: "He came unto His own, and His own received Him not.
But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of
God, even to them that believe on His name." (John 1:11-12)
promised, "Ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is
come upon you...." (Acts 1:8) Finally Jesus said, "I will
never leave thee nor forsake thee." (Hebrews 13:5) "...and
lo I am with you always, even unto the end of the world." (Matthew
