Gospel preaching, teaching,  end times Bible prophecy, Bible articles, sermons  by Pastor Max Solbrekken. Healing & miracle testimonies,A LEGENDARY EVANGELISTIC - Dr. Max Solbrekken

This 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.

Max 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.

We asked Max to tell us how he got saved.

"I 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."

My 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.


WHY WE NEED A REVIVAL
By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

The Bible clearly outlines the sins of Israel, which at one time held a special relationship with God. In this article I compare Israel's backsliding to the Church of Jesus Christ's seemingly constant drift from our amazing spiritual beginning until the present!

In the same manner, I parallel the Fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden from purity, honesty and worship of their Creator to the corrupt, jaded and perverted world system of today!

God's Word states:"Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people." (Prov. 14: 34 ); "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." (Ps. 33: 12). According to these Scriptures, Canada is in a fallen state!

The Church is in desperate need of a genuine Holy Ghost, heaven-sent, apostolic revival of mammoth proportions! Without a visitation from God, the Church will not be able survive the awful onslaught of Satanic invention and intrigue!

The Evil One is working overtime to minimize, decimate and destroy the effectiveness of the Body of Christ around the world! He has employed many and varied agencies and emissaries to do his bidding ever since 'The Fall', which has caused great confusion and suffering to the Church.

The greatest problem suffered by the Body of Christ down though the centuries,  however, has been self - inflicted! Discord among brethren, jealousy, envy, backbiting, lust, greed, pride and control, have been some of the sins that have seriously hampered the sanctity and the growth of the Church!

Other major problems have been that of deception, laziness and indifference! Power hungry men have often been willing to compromise the Word of God, to maintain their position of prominence in society and authority in the Church.

What has been the result of these actions? A loss of real spiritual power, a vacuum of moral leadership in the Church and community, and a blurred   vision of the purpose and goals of  the Ministry. It has also generated a lukewarmness toward the needs of the people, a lack of compassion to reach a lost world and a loss of  the Holy Spirit's fire in praise and worship.

Here are some key Scriptures that relate to our situation today and their ramifications as it applies to our individual lives and the Church body as a whole. In this message I seek to show the similarities that existed in various times in Israel's history of backsliding to what is happening in the Church presently.

1. NEHEMIAH 1: 1 - 5

"The words of Nehemiah the son of Hach-a-liah. And it came to pass in the month Chisleu, in the twentieth year, as I was in the palace, That Ha-na-ni, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning Jerusalem. And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire.

"And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven,  And said, I beseech Thee, O' Lord God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love Him and observe His commandments."

It seems clear to me that the report given to Hezekiah about the awful condition of Jerusalem - the City of God - and the sad plight of the inhabitants therein, closely resemble the plight of the Christian Church in many parts of the world today.

Jesus said: "I will build My church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." (Matt. 16: 18). It is true that  Jesus is building His Church and it is also true that the gates of hell cannot and will not prevail against it. During the time of Christ, City Hall (as we call it), where plans of war were hammered out,  was directly behind the gate, and consequently was referred to as the Gates of the City!  The words, 'the gates of hell', refer to the opinions, plans,  strategy and agenda of Satan. They cannot succeed in the long term! They will be defeated.

Our Lord gave us the Great Commission, which stated in part: "Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe: In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay their hands on the sick and they shall recover." (Mark 16: 15 – 18)

IS THE CHURCH A REPROACH TODAY?

We must ask ourselves the questions: "Are we fulfilling the Great Commission of our Lord, or are we just playing Church? Are we casting out devils, healing the sick, setting the captives free, and preaching the good news to those who haven't yet heard?

Even a casual reading of the Epistles teaches us how graciously, unselfishly and righteously God desires us to live, after receiving Jesus Christ as Lord. Do we love the Lord  with all our heart, soul and mind, and our neighbour as ourselves? Do we love others, as Christ loved us or do we hold onto grudges and unforgiveness? It is difficult  to believe that we are not "missing the mark" in these areas.

The Lord's Prayer, which our Master taught His disciples to pray, states in part: "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." Have our lives helped to cause that to happen? Is His will being done in our earth (body) as well as on the earth? Are we a part of the solution or a part of the problem?

Hezekiah was confronted with a pitiful sight! The walls of Jerusalem were broken down and the gates had been burned with fire! And the remnant that were left in God's Holy City were in great affliction (poverty, despair, sickness) and reproach (persecuted, maligned, ridiculed). If we are honest with ourselves and God, we must admit that this is a picture of the Church world-wide.

Never before, has the Roman Catholic Church been so publicly disgraced and sued in the courts, because of the sick homosexual practices of their pervert pedophile priests! And when you see Protestant denominations in the Western World caving in to the demands of homosexuals and lesbians for ordination and same-sex marriages for their clergy, doesn't it make you sick?

The first time I saw two men kissing on TV, I felt nauseated!  What a reproach. What an unnatural, disgusting image for little children to absorb!

The disastrous fall into almost comatose formalism, and a rejection of the Virgin birth of Christ, the Born Again experience and the Doctrine of Hell of many Protestant Churches makes one wonder how bad it can get. The only answer is a red-hot, Holy Spirit led revival of righteousness.

2.  Joel  1: 9 - 14,  Joel 2:15

"The field is wasted, the land mourneth; for the corn is wasted: the new wine is dried up, the oil languisheth. Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye wine dressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished.

"The vine is dried up, and the fig tree languisheth; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered: because joy is withered away from the sons of men. Gird yourselves and lament ye priests: howl, ye ministers of the altar: come, lie all night in sackcloth, ye ministers of my God: for the meat offering and the drink offering is withholden from the house of your God.

"Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the Lord your God, and cry unto the Lord. Alas for the day! for the day of the Lord is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come."

I believe that there is a parallel  between the crises in the Church today, and the vision that the prophet Joel had of Israel facing the day of judgment, called in the Old testament, 'the Day of the Lord'! Using this Scripture as a pre-picture of the Church in the time of the end, allow me to share some pertinent and very important truths:

Why was Israel to asked to call a solemn assembly? Why must the priests lie all night in sackcloth, crying unto God? Why must all the inhabitants of the land fast, mourn, weep and repent? Judgment was coming! The terrible 'Day of the Lord' was about to take place, when the Almighty's wrath will fall upon the world at the very end of time.

THE BIBLE ISSUES A WARNING!

St. Peter wrote about it with great solemnity and warning: "But the day of the Lord shall come as  a thief in the night; in the which 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. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness?

"Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless, according to His promise,  look for  new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness."

"Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of Him in peace, without spot, and blameless." (2 Peter 3: 10 – 14). Why should we call a solemn assembly and sanctify a fast? Why should the Church spend much, much more time in prayer?  Here are three reasons:

1. WE HAVE LOST THE HARVEST -  VERSE 11

 For the Church,  the harvest is the youth of our nation! Our young people who have drifted away from the faith of their fathers and mothers! Young people who smoke marijuana, fornicate, drink alcoholic beverages and gamble at the casinos and video lottery terminals! Young people who are carnally minded and live only for pleasure, instead of being consecrated and dedicated to God and His program.

2. WE HAVE LOST THE JOY - VERSE 12

The reason that there is so little joy in the hearts of Christians is because we have lost the harvest. It is because we are not winning souls to Christ! 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." (Psalm 126: 5, 6).

I have never met an unhappy soul winner! People who witness for Christ and are engaged in Church and Missionary work are the happiest people that I have been privileged to meet, because they are involved with eternal souls. A soul winner's joy is sweet and his reward is great.

The Bible says: "And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever." (Daniel 12: 2, 3)

3.  THERE IS NO MEAT & DRINK OFFERING - VERSE 13

The priests and their families lived off  some of the offerings that were brought to the temple. People had stopped bringing in their offerings, so therefore there was very little for the ministering priests to live on. How can the Church survive when people lose interest, backslide, stop paying their tithes?

How can the work of God grow if people stop serving Him, and discontinue giving missionary offerings? Only a revival, an awakening, a visitation from God Almighty will shake us into action, so that our hearts will be right with Him and open to the call of God upon our lives. Let us call a solemn assembly and get people involved in fasting and praying for a genuine revival from Heaven.

3. HABAKKUK 3: 1, 2

“A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet upon Shigionoth. O Lord, I have heard Thy speech, and was afraid: O Lord, revive Thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy."

This is one of the most powerful Scriptures in the Bible, to convince the Church to call upon God for mercy, forgiveness and help! The prophet had  apparently been in prayer and God had spoken to him.  Prayer is a two-way street. It is important to let God speak to us during our times of seeking Him!  What God told the prophet shook him to the core, and made him afraid.

What did God tell Habakkuk? It seems that God must have given him a message, that impending  judgment was about to fall. Gripped by a holy reverence andr godly fear, the prophet cried out: 

"Instead of judgment, send a revival.  Revive Thy work O Lord, in the midst of the years. Don't let your cup of judgment get filled up! Rather make yourself known unto us NOW by forgiving our sins and showing mercy. And if You must judge us, in Your great wrath remember to be merciful!

4. JEREMIAH 2: 13 ;  6: 16

 "For My people have committed two evils; they have forsaken Me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water. Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein."

There are some sad stories in the Bible of hardhearted people who refused to turn to the Lord, even after He called them repeatedly!  Here He speaks to Jeremiah - the weeping prophet - about His feelings regarding Israel , His chosen people! He asks: "Hath a nation changed their gods, which are no gods? but My people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit." (v. 11).

He indicts Israel on two counts:  Forsaking Him, the fountain of living water and exchanging Him for counterfeits - broken cisterns which can hold no water.

Then, He challenges them to take a good hard look at all the alternatives: "Stand at the crossroads of life and have a good look at the alternatives. Then, return to the good ways and walk in them." What does He offer? Peace and rest for our souls! yet, there are many who enter the wide gate and take the  broad road which leads to death and destruction.

THE BIBLE GIVES THE KEY TO REVIVAL

Here is the KEY to revival: “If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." (2 Chron. 7: 14).

There are four things that God's people must do in order for the Almighty to rend the heavens and come down in Revival Power in our midst!

First, we must humble ourselves, getting rid of the sin of pride. Second, we must begin to pray earnestly for His intervention. Third, we must seek His face in protracted times of intimate fellowship with our Heavenly Father! We must get close enough so that we can walk with Him like Enoch, Abraham and Moses! And Four, we must "lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily besets us" (Heb.12: 1, 2),  and turn from every wicked way.

5. MALACHI 1: 6 - 9; 3: 8 - 10

"A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a Father, where is Mine honour? and if I be a Master, where is My fear? saith the Lord of hosts unto you. O priests, that despise My name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised Thy name? Ye offer polluted bread upon Mine altar, and ye say, Wherein have we polluted Thee? In that ye say, The table of the Lord is contemptible.

"And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil" and if ye offer the lame and the blind, is it not evil? offer it now to thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the Lord of hosts. And now, I pray you, beseech God that He will be gracious unto us: this hath been by your means: will he regard your person saith the Lord of hosts.

God was displeased with the priests who were indifferent to their holy tasks in the temple. They were only going through the motions instead of  reverently ministering to the Lord! Are we also guilty of only going through the motions without real conviction and love for our Lord?

May God help us to give Him our very best, instead of the cull, the left - overs in our life. He is not content to play second fiddle or be the fifth wheel. He wants to be NUMBER ONE in our heart and life! Let us give Jesus Christ centre stage.

In verse 11 through 14, we read: "For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same MY name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense  shall be offered unto My name, and a pure offering: for My name shall be great among the heathen, saith the Lord of hosts."

What were they doing? They were offering animals that were blind and lame and sick unto the eternal God! He asks: "Should I accept this of your hand? saith the Lord. But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing: for I am a great King, saith the Lord of hosts, and My name is dreadful among the heathen."

A SIN AND A SHAME!

It is scandalous when you consider the very little we give to God and His cause in the so-called Christian nations, relative to what we spend on cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, pornography, gambling and amusement. It is a Sin and a Shame! We spend more money on chewing gum in our respective countries than we give to Almighty God. That has to change.

In Chapter 3, we read: "Will a man rob God? yet ye have robbed Me.  But ye say, Wherein have we robbed Thee. In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed Me, even this whole nation.

“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in Mine house, and PROVE ME now herewith saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there will not be room enough to receive it.

"And I will REBUKE THE DEVOURER for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts."

Upon the authority of God's Word, I declare that you will never sorry if you give God His share in tithes and offerings. He is no man's debtor and He will prosper and bless you as He has promised. His Word cannot fail and He will not fail you.

Isaiah's life was changed when he had a vision of God in the temple. He became one of the greatest Prophets of all times! He cried out: "Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither His ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear." (Isaiah 59: 1, 2)

Here he gives us the key to forgiveness and peace: "Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon." (Isaiah 55: 6, 7)

6. REVELATION 3: 14 - 20

"And unto the angel of the church of the La-od-i-ce'ans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot; I would that thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of My mouth.

 "Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. I counsel thee to buy of Me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear, and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be  zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me."

The La-od-i-ce'an Church had drifted  so far from the truth that Jesus is standing on the outside seeking entrance to His OWN CHURCH. How very, very sad! He wants us to be red hot for Him and His Gospel. Please make room for Jesus Christ in your heart and life today! Only then, do we really begin living. In his great love and mercy, Jesus will wash away every sin and fill our hearts with contentment and contagious joy!

What a reproach in that Day, to be left on the outside, because you have left Him on the outside of your life! He urges, “Behold, I stand at the Door and knock, if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him,  and will sup with him and he with Me.

“To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, ans am set down with My Father in His throne.” (Rev. 3: 20, 21)

7. JONAH 1: 1-6

“Arise, go to Ninevah, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before Me. But Jonah rose up to flee from the presence of the Lord; and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish; so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.

“But the Lord sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest  in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken. Then the mariners were afraid, and cried every man unto his god, and cast forth the wares  that were in the ship into the sea, to lighten it of them.. But Jonah was gone down into the sides of the ship, and he lay, and was fast asleep.

“So the shipmaster came to him, and said unto him. What meanest thou O sleeper? Arise, call upon thy God, if so be it that God will think upon us, that we perish not. And they said everyone to his fellow, Come, and let us cast  lots, that we may know for whose cause this evil is upon us. So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Jonah.

“Then said they unto him, Tell us, we pray thee, for whose cause this evil is upon us; What is thine occupation? and whence comest thou? What is thy country? and of what people art thou?  And he said unto them, I am an Hebrew; and I fear the Lord, the God of Heaven, which hath made the sea and the dry land.

“Then, were the men exceedingly afraid, and said unto him, Why hast thou done this? For the men knew that he had fled from the presence of God, because he had told them. Then said they unto him, what shall we do unto thee, that the sea may be calm unto us: for the sea wrought and was tempestuous unto them.

“Then said he, Take me up, and cast me forth into the sea; so shall the sea be calm unto you: for I know that for my sake this great tempest is upon you. Nevertheless, the men rowed hard to bring it to land.; but they could not; for the sea wrought and was tempestuous unto against them.

“Wherefore they cried unto the Lord, and said, we beseech Thee O Lord, we beseech Thee, let us not perish for this man's life, and lay not upon us innocent blood: for Thou  O Lord, hast done as it pleased Thee. So they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea, and the sea ceased from her raging.

“Then the men feared exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice unto the Lord, and made vows. Now the Lord had prepared a GREAT FISH to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights."

What a wake-up call Jonah received from Almighty God and what tremendous measures He takes, so that a heathen city could hear God's voice and be saved. It was an unusual and awesome way to reach that entire city for Him.

WHEN GOD BECAME A MAN!

It pales, however, when one considers the Salvation plan that Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled through His Virgin birth, pure and righteous life, vicarious death and glorious resurrection. The Sovereignty of God demanded  punishment for sin and the CROSS provided the Final solution!

For a time, God overlooked or winked at our sins in His great mercy and kindness by allowing the sacrificing of innocent lambs, goats and bullocks (occasionally a red heifer) to suffice.

When the fullness of time had come, however, Almighty God our Heavenly Father, gave Himself in His Son to be the propitiation for our sins and those of the whole world. The word propitiation means the covering, satisfaction and the expiation. Jesus of Nazareth, true God from eternity and true man by His virgin birth, had to die so that He could cover us and remove our sins to SATISFY the Righteous Demands of Divine Justice.

While in the belly of the GREAT FISH, Jonah repented of his rebellion and disobedience. God forgave him and gave him another opportunity to reach the wicked city of Nineveh with God's message of repentance and judgment. Praise the Lord!

“And the Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry ground. And the Word of the Lord came unto Jonah the Second time, saying, Arise, go unto Nineveh that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee. So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the Word of the Lord. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days journey.

“So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest one even to the least of them. For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes...

“When God saw their works, that they turned from their Evil way; and God repented of the evil that He had said that He would do unto them, and He did did it not.” (Job 2: 10: 3:1-10)

The total repentance of the entire city of Nineveh moved Almighty God to change His mind about His judgment toward them. He freely forgave them all by extending His mercy toward them. Jonah's change of heart in obeying God's directive after a long and hard lesson, brought our Heavenly Father's great love into focus for all to see and experience.

IMPORTANT LESSONS TO ALL!

There are a number of lessons for us to learn from this ancient happening: First, God loves the heathen and will use every possible means to rescue them. Secondly, the work of a true 'Man of God' isn't a soft touch. It may involve tough times and very hard work. The importance is to be obedient to the Holy Spirit and answer 'yes' when He calls!

My prayer is that everyone of us will be willing to carry the message of Christ's salvation to our relatives, friends, neighbours and others as often as possible whenever possible to as many as possible, for as long as possible!

WILLIAM BOOTH and his wife Catherine founded the Salvation Army in 1865.  They chose as their slogan, 'Blood and Fire', referring to Jesus Christ's BLOOD shed for the remission of sins and the Fire referring to the FIRE of the Holy Spirit.  He stated, "The tendency of fire is to go out; watch the fire on the altar of your heart.  Anyone who has tended a fireplace, knows that it needs to be stirred up occasionally.

In 1892, William Booth wrote the well-known hymn, 'SEND THE FIRE'It is filled with Gospel truth, Biblical Doctrine and Great Commission Admonition.  You can sense the presence of God by reading the words, and the Holy Spirit burns when it is sung.

There is no-one as unhappy as a person who has been called of God to preach Christ's Gospel, but has stifled that call. For some people it will be too late to answer that call, but for others the Holy Spirit may still be calling for you to do His bidding. May He help you to answer that call. Amen.

WALKING TOO CLOSE
 TO THE EDGE

By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

It was a beautiful Spring Day in April, 2017. Six young hikers were enjoying their walk on top of Mount Harvey north of Vancouver, British Columbia. One hiker fell behind. When he arrived at the summit, his friends were not there. The five had stepped onto a large ledge (cornice) and it broke loose plunging them 500 meters down to the ground and their death.

It was such a tragedy!  Those hikers didn't realize the serious situation they were walking onto, until it was too late.  The young men were unsuspecting, thinking that they were on solid ground. Gradually, they had moved from safety to uncertainty. Then, suddenly, the end came!

Unfortunately, there are many people today who in a spiritual sense, are “walking too close to the edge” and are unknowingly in great danger in their personal lives and even their soul's salvation! They feel they are quite alright but have left God out of their lives and  have in their own minds constructed a new theology,  a feel good religion of being kind to their neighbour or protecting the environment.

What a shock for them when they finally stand before the Living God for judgment, without the covering of Jesus' blood and the assurance of Eternal Life! A ticket of 'Good Works' is worthless without the Salvation of God that is given us through Jesus Christ alone!

There are a lot of young people who fall into a similar trap.  In their quest for action and fulfillment, they will try anything different, trust a new acquaintance or get hooked on dangerous drugs! Many become obsessed with lustful habits, involved in illicit sex, drunken parties, gambling or crime!

Others are seduced by the spirit of the Occult and become deceived by demons of  witchcraft, spiritism, mind reading, clairvoyance, yoga and spirit travel. Suicide demons prey on the minds of the simple until 'a Lying Spirit' convinces them to do it, luring them to a devil's Hell forever.

Multitudes have lost their way in the fog of political correctness and in a spiritual sense, have fallen off  a cliff because the ground where they were walking was unsafe, shaky and treacherous. The tragedy is that many are ignorant of the pitfalls and the fact that they are throwing away their lives, by listening to the Tempter.

Eve thought she was listening to a very intelligent and honest being when she heard Lucifer talking to her through the voice of the serpent. She was deceived and got Adam to partake of the forbidden fruit, thereby plunging the entire human race into rebellion, chaos and wickedness.  Listening to that evil, lying voice was the greatest tragedy ever to befall mortal man!

Many more are being deceived today in exactly the same way. They think they are hearing very knowledgeable voices telling them that they will get rich if they spend more time at the casino. One more poker game and they will reclaim everything they lost. One more throw of the dice or one more night of revelry and everything will change for them. It was the voice of Satan, the Liar!

Then he asked pointedly: “There is a very winding road up in the mountain pass. Looking over the edge, it's hard to see the bottom. Have you ever driven on such a road.” The driver nodded that he had. The interviewer said: “I've asked the other drivers, how near could they come to edge of the road at a full gallop and still be safe. One said that he could drive within two feet of the edge and the other said that he could come within 12 inches."

"The young driver stood to his feet, put the hat on his head and said, “Excuse me sir, I am not your man. I would stay as far away from the edge of that road as I could.” As he was walking toward the door, the Stage Coach Representative jumped up, saying, “Stop. You are man we want. You have the job.”

TOO FAR FROM THE SHORE!

In 1924, Charles E. Moody wrote the beautiful Gospel song : You're drifting too far from the shore? It has been popularized by many singers such as Hank Snow, Vince Gill, Dolly Parton and others. Here are some of Charles Moody's wonderful lyrics:

Out on the perilous deep
Where danger silently creeps
And storms so violently sweeping
You're drifting too far from shore

Drifting too far from shore
You're drifting too far from shore
Come to Jesus today

Let Him show you the way
You're drifting too far from shore

Today, The Tempest rose high
And clouds overshadowed the sky
Sure death is hovering nigh
You're drifting too far from shore.

What an amazingly true statement! Far too many have loosed from their moorings and are drifting toward open seas with no compass and no map. Jesus is our Way Maker, His Word our compass and guide.

To the multitudes who have thrown caution to the wind and have thumbed your noses at moral norms and are now in big trouble, there is still hope for you. 

If you call out to Jesus Christ for deliverance, He will answer you. He will rescue you from the angry waves. He will liberate you from the powers of sin, fear, sickness and evil spirits. You will become a new creature in Christ Jesus. He will wash you in His blood, forgive your sins, remove the fear and fill you with His blessed Holy Spirit! JESUS will give you His peace!

If you do not, you will continue drifting farther from the shore and the waves of fear, bondage, despair, despondency and confusion will overtake you and you may never come back.

Dear friend, if I have described your situation, remember Jesus waits for your call this very moment. He invites: “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” (Matt.11:28).  Again He said: “All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me; and him that cometh unto Me, I will in wise cast out.” (John 6:37).

There is only ONE Who has the mercy and grace to reach out to you and the power to liberate you! He said: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father but by Me.” (John 14: 6). Amen.


End times, Vital signs of end times, Bible scriptures messages end times4 SIGNIFICANT SIGNS OF 
THE END TIMES
What does the Bible say?
by: Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

There are four significant signs that show us where we stand today in relation to then end times and our Lord’s soon return, namely:

End times, Vital signs of end times, Bible scriptures messages end timesThe Sick Condition of our Planet
End times, Vital signs of end times, Bible scriptures messages end timesThe Sick Condition of the World
End times, Vital signs of end times, Bible scriptures messages end timesThe Sick Condition of Israel
End times, Vital signs of end times, Bible scriptures messages end timesThe Sick Condition of the Church

SIGN #1  - THE SICK CONDITION OF OUR PLANET

Mankind is groaning under the terrible weight of sin and condemnation. Satan - the enemy of God and man - has bound the human race with shackles of rebellion, unbelief, fear, torment, lust, greed, hatred and perversion! It was Adam’s acquiescence to the Evil One’s lying temptation that brought sickness and death (spiritual and physical) upon the human race.

The Bible states: “For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.  For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of Him who hath subjected the same in hope.  Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.  For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now."

“And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit (that is to say), the redemption of our body.” (Romans 8:19-23)

People everywhere are waiting for the ‘MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS OF GOD’!  What does that mean?  Six billion people are looking for an escape from the emptiness, fear, torment, sickness and bondage in which they live.

THE ENTIRE WORLD IS WAITING FOR US - GOD’S CHILDREN TO BE SO FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT WE CAN FREE THEM FROM THE TYRANNY AND LIES OF THE DEVIL AND HIS EMISSARIES.

Don’t believe for a moment, that the millions lost in sin and bound by evil spirits of occultism, superstition, false religion, satanic oppression and sexual perversion are happy in that state!  No one enjoys being in slavery to witchcraft, fear, torment and evil spirits.

Oh, some are sufficiently deceived to live in a fool’s paradise having convinced themselves that everything is A-Okay, but the opposite is true.  If everything is all right, why do so many rock musicians die of drug overdoses and commit suicide?  Why do many Hollywood stars die of alcoholism, suicide and drug overdoses?   And why do wealthy, successful people - who seem to have everything going for them - take their own lives?

The Bible says, “But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, bringing forth mire and dirt. There is no peace saith my God to the wicked”. (Isaiah 57:20-21)

Our enemy is not flesh and blood, but Satan himself and all his demons that tempt, deceive, coerce, inhibit, afflict, torment, steal and kill!  Our battle is with the devil - not with human beings, however he does use people to do his bidding!  The devil must have his emissaries & ministers, to do his evil work.

And what of the Hindu extremists constantly fighting the Muslims in India and the Seiks battling the Hindus?  And the (political) ungodly Roman Catholic IRA killing the (political) ‘Christian-in-name-only’ Protestants and vice versa?

And if the pagan are so happy in their religious life, why are there so many ‘holy jihads’?  Two examples: Muslim Iran against Muslim Iraq in a seven year war that saw one million men die, and at present Islamic extremists terrorizing and butchering hundreds of their own people in Algeria?

THEY DO NOT KNOW GOD and have not been changed by His mighty power.  Anyone who has been converted to Christ, being born again by the Word of God and the Holy Spirit, would certainly not be waging ‘holy wars’ against their fellowmen.  The only warfare that we are commanded to fight is the ‘Good Fight of Faith’"

End times, Vital signs of end times, Bible scriptures messages end timesHOW DO WE FIGHT THE DEVIL?

The Bible says, “Satan, your adversary, goeth about like a roaring lion, seeking who he may devour, whom resist in the faith...” (1 Peter 5:9) We resist him by serving Jesus to the best of our ability; by living a holy and righteous life, preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, healing the sick and casting our devils!

The Scripture says, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5)

In our search for more land to conquer, new technologies to improve our living standards, and the pursuit or more wealth, man has engaged in wars, enslavement, violence and pollution which has raped our environment, land, water and air.

Our Planet is groaning under the terrible weight of the awful harvest of mankind’s sins of rebellion, greed, hatred, violence and slavery!

In the beginning, after the fall of our first parents, THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE was plunged into sin, fear, sickness & death! God immediately placed a curse upon the earth - “And unto Adam He said, Because thou hast harkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life”. (Genesis 3:17)

OUR PLANET is struggling to stay alive and is groaning under this burden! The ‘second law of thermodynamics’ began after the fall and continues today with aging, deterioration and decay. Only the return of Jesus Christ will salvage the earth. Mankind will not be allowed to destroy the earth, but will be punished for defiling and polluting it, as is prophesied in the last book of the Bible.

THE BIBLE SAYS, “And the nations were angry, and Thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that Thou shouldest give reward unto Thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear Thy name, small and great; And shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.” (Revelation 11:18)

God will have the last word and will judge polluters! If you want a good example of this, look at the former Soviet Union which polluted the land, sea and air and after raping the environment, ended up totally bankrupt.

JESUS CHRIST MUST RETURN IN ORDER TO SAVE US FROM OUR OWN DESTRUCTIONS, SO THAT HE CAN REIGN ON THIS EARTH FOR 1000 YEARS OF PEACE AND PROSPERITY.

Believers in Jesus Christ, like St. Paul, are waiting for the moment when we can be free from the limitations of our weak, carnal flesh and to be glorified (in the next life) to forever be in Heaven with Jesus Christ and all the redeemed from all ages! WE WILL THEN RECEIVE A RESURRECTED BODY WITHOUT THE LIMITATIONS WE HAVE TODAY.

The Bible says, “And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit (that is to say), the redemption of our body.” (Romans 8:23)

Eternity will be a joyful time of peace and glory as we live eternally in Heaven with our Lord Jesus Christ and all the redeemed from every nation, tongue and people of all ages"

“And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready."

“And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.” (Revelation 19:6-9)

End times, Vital signs of end times, Bible scriptures messages end timesSIGN #2 - THE SICK CONDITION OF THE WORLD

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. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” (1 John 2:15-17)

These are Satan’s three knockout-punches which he uses to tempt the “children of men”, namely: 1) the lust of the eyes 2) the lust of the flesh and 3) the pride of life.

Satan used these three temptations on Eve with great success. “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food (lust of the flesh), and that it was pleasant to the eyes (lust of th eyes), and a tree to be desired to make one wise (the pride of life), she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” (Gen. 3:6)

King David fell under this temptation also: He saw a beautiful woman taking a bath in the privacy of her garden (the lust of the eyes). He desired her and sent for her, committing adultery (the lust of the flesh). HE FELL AFTER ONLY TWO STRIKES

JESUS DEFEATED HIM TOTALLY

It was a different story when Satan used his time-tested strategy on our Lord Jesus Christ. He withstood the temptation and defeated the devil each time he came with a new “trick up his sleeve".

After Jesus had fasted 40 days, Satan said to Him: “Command that these stones be made bread.” (the lust of the flesh) Jesus answered, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."

The devil tried again: “If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. (the pride of life) Jesus answered, “It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.” IN OTHER WORDS, GOD DOESN’T CLOWN FOR ANYBODY.

Finally, Satan showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time and said: “All these things will I give thee (pride of life), if thou wilt fall down and worship me.” WHAT A DESPICABLE, ARROGANT, EGOTIST SATAN IS! Jesus rebuffed him immediately with the Word of God saying, “Get thee hence, Satan (enemy): for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.” (Matt. 4:1-11)

End times, Vital signs of end times, Bible scriptures messages end timesSATAN HAD TO LEAVE HIM, THEN

The Bible affirms that Satan is “the god of this world” and “the spirit which now worketh in the children of the disobedience”. (John 12:31; Ephesians 2:2) He is the world’s greatest liar and the father of lies and a murderer extra-ordinaire (John 8:44))

The whole world lies in the lap of the wicked one (1 John 5:19) and he “goeth about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). We however, can “resist him in the faith and he will flee from us”. (1 Peter 5:9; James 4:7)

The Bible records that Demos was swayed by the bright lights of Thessalonica and forsook Paul, “having loved this present world” (2 Timothy 4:10). And St. John commends the young men in the Church for overcoming the wicked one! (1 John 2:13)

ST. PAUL WARNED OF THE TOTAL DETERIORATION OF MORALITY, DECENCY AND FAIRNESS IN THE LAST DAYS. DECADENCE & PERVERSION WILL RULE JUST PRIOR TO OUR LORD’S RETURN, STATED THE APOSTLE! AS WE READ THE PROPHECY WE FEEL SADDENED BY THE RESEMBLANCE OF OUR PRESENT AGE TO THE PROPHETIC WORD OF GOD.

“This know also, that IN THE LAST DAYS PERILOUS TIMES SHALL COME. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good.

“Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

“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;” (1 Timothy 4:1) “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.” (Ephesians  5:11-12) “Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:” (Philippians 3:17-20)

Interjected among the reports of hypocrisy, backsliding & gross moral evils, St. Paul interjects the Blessed Hope of the Return of Jesus Christ.

“For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ."

Our thoughts, actions, prayers, plans, goals and complete agenda here, is tied to Heaven’s plans, purposes and desires. We belong to His heavenly kingdom and labour first and foremost for Christ.

Why is this so important? Only our Blessed Jesus Christ has the mandate, power & desire to straighten out this wicked world. Therefore we wait for Him to come.

End times, Vital signs of end times, Bible scriptures messages end timesPERVERSION VYING FOR RESPECTABILITY

Jesus prophesied that the time will come, “that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service”. (John 16:2)

And the prophet stated, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes...Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!” (Is. 5:20-23)

St. Paul expounded, “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.” (2 Corinthians 4:3-5)

That this WORLD IS EVIL AND PERVERTED is no secret! The world system that despises that which is good and glorifies that which is EVIL is a product of Satanic invention, since he is the “god of this world”.

Again Paul declares that Jesus Christ “gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world (age), according to the will of God and our Father”. (Galatians 1:4)

End times, Vital signs of end times, Bible scriptures messages end times SIGN #3  - THE SICK CONDITION OF ISRAEL

ISRAEL IS VULNERABLE FACING ATTACKS FROM EVERY  DIRECTION

At this moment in history, Israel is very vulnerable because of the pressure placed upon them by the nations of the world to give up land for peace.  And the United States - who traditionally has been their friend, is turning the screws the hardest of all.

Eventually, Israel will succumb to all this pressure and give away so much land that they will be unable to defend themselves. Sometime in the future, Israel will be deceived into accepting the Antichrist as their Messiah and will suffer terribly because of that. Referring to this, our Lord said to the Jewish leaders,

“I am come in My Father's name, and ye receive Me not: if another (the anti-Christ) shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.” (John 5:43

The Jewish leaders rejected Jesus Christ Who came to save them in His Father’s Name. When Antichrist comes in his own name, they will receive him!

WHAT A SAD & TRAGIC COMMENTARY ON WHAT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN!

My guess is that Iraq will eventually be reduced in power after the United States and her allies are finished with her. Then undoubtedly, Iran will pick up the pieces and gobble up Iraq (and possibly Syria) and control all the oil flow in the Middle East!  (Ezekiel 38 & 39)

GOD'S WORD STATES THAT RUSSIA WILL RISE UP AGAIN IN GREAT POWER AND LEAD THE MARCH AGAINST ISRAEL

Iran will then be the dominant power in the area, with the USA and Israel giving in to their demands! According to God’s Word, Russia will rise in great power again and lead the march against Israel!

The prophet Ezekiel declared that Iran (Persia) together with Ethiopia, Libya & Turkey will march against Israel in the great battle of ‘Gog and Magog’.

GOD WILL FIGHT FOR ISRAEL AND DEFEND HER

GOD WILL FIGHT FOR ISRAEL AND DEFEND HER! A great slaughter will unfortunately take place however, before God’s chosen people come to their senses. They will ultimately receive their long awaited Messiah Jesus Christ, when He returns n the Second Coming of Jesus Christ in power and great glory at the end of the age!

Jesus Christ will then rule and reign for 1000 years of peace upon planet earth, as King of kings and Lord of lords!

End times, Vital signs of end times, Bible scriptures messages end times SIGN #4  - THE SICK CONDITION OF THE CHURCH

Celebrated Canadian writer, Peter Newman exposes the weaknesses in our churches and outlines wherein and how we have failed to communicate the Gospel to our children, grandchildren and our neighbours.

In his recent book, ‘The Canadian Revolution’ Peter Newman chronicles the free-fall of the United Church of Canada’s membership as well as their influence in society during the past three decades.

Newman writes, “The United Church, formed in 1925 through a union of Methodists, Presbyterians and Congregationalists, suffered the steepest decline. Three million Canadians declared their United Church affiliation to the latest census takers but less than 380,000 bothered going to church. Although the most liberal of the mainstream congregations, allowing for the ordination of gay priests and promoting the social gospel, the United Church found itself paradoxically unable to attract the young.”

A footnote says, “An increasingly typical event was the closing, during the fall of 1994, of Chalmers United Church in downtown Vancouver. There wasn’t a single member left on its congregational rolls who was less than 80 years old.”

For years, University of Lethbridge sociologist Reginald Bibby has tracked the religious life of Canadians. In his book ‘Unknown Gods’ , Bibby states: “Tragically, religious groups are failing in what appear to be spiritually prosperous times. The churches are inept religious companies that cannot get the faith out of the ware house …The news is that interest and intrigue persist, in spite of the problems of organized religion. The result may be a very sizable, ongoing spiritual vacuum.”

The Anglican Church, according to the census has 2.2 million members with 784,000 active adherents. Addressing the church synod in 1994, Archbishop Peter O’Driscoll warned: “In the next ten to fifteen years the largest age group in the present Anglican Church of Canada will be dead. At the end of two generations, there won’t be enough people to say there’s still an Anglican Church alive in this country.”

HOW SAD AND TRAGIC!

While the Anglican Church lost 250,000 members from 1981 to 1991, and the United Church lost 665,000 members during that same period - that’s 10 % and 20 % respectively - the Pentecostal Church grew by 100,000 adherents and the Christian & Missionary Alliance doubled in size!

The November,1965 issue of Canada’s Revival Magazine, ‘Cry of His Coming’ carried the following prophetic headline: 1965 UNITED CHURCH NEW CURRICULUM SETS STAGE FOR MORE APOSTACY! MODERATOR REV. HOWSE DENIES PHYSICAL RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST !

In that article, this author wrote under the by-line, ‘THE GREAT FALLING AWAY’ - St. Paul warns: “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)

The ‘Great Falling Away’ is Here Now- with entire denominations of Christian Churches turning their backs on the Holy Scriptures, declaring them fallible and contradictory. They despise the great truths of the Bible, and exchange them for their own humanistic, man-made philosophies!

As strange as this may seem, these reprobate preachers actually play-out the exact role of ‘backsliding Israel’ in Old Testament times.

“For My people have committed two evils; they have forsaken Me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns that can hold no water.” (Jeremiah 2:13)

HERE IS A LIST OF THEIR BACKSLIDINGS!

End times, Vital signs of end times,They have violated the sanctity of the Holy Bible, discarding the eternal truths of God’s Word. Man-made philosophies, secular humanism and blatantly spurious doctrines have filled the void!

End times, Vital signs of end times,They rely almost totally on man’s wisdom and carnal knowledge, having rejected the wisdom that comes solely from the Holy Scriptures. This leaves them incapable of making sound spiritual decisions!

End times, Vital signs of end times,They have rejected the counsel of the Holy Spirit- divine paraclete- and draw their inspiration from the teachings of others similarly deceived. Serious decision making regarding spiritual matters and doctrine is therefore prejudiced, flawed and compromised!

End times, Vital signs of end times,Their emphasis is on good works, rather than the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for our sins. The ‘social gospel’ they preach is devoid of the grace of God and faith in the blood of Jesus Christ. Their ‘good works’ message offers only secular and political rhetoric to undo social injustices, without a sound spiritual foundation.

End times, Vital signs of end times,They have desecrated the Holy Scriptures by substituting their own verbiage instead of the correct translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, in reference to God Himself. These literary counterfeiters have unilaterally -without any jurisdiction- decided to change the gender of Almighty God from masculine (Father) to Mother.  Instead of addressing God as He, they refer to Him as She and the Lord Jesus is not the Son of God, but the Child of God!

The Word of God conclusively states: “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

“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; Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.” (1 Timothy 4:1-2, 16)

AN URGENT WARNING ISSUED TO THOSE TAMPERING WITH GOD’S WORD

“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: but he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

“Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

“Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God... Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

“If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which He hath testified of His Son. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made Him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of His Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” (1 John 2:22-23; 4:1-3; 5:1, 4-5, 9-12)

End times, Vital signs of end times,WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? SIMPLY THIS:

Anyone who denies that Jesus Christ is God is a false teacher and an enemy of God.

Every spirit that confesses that ‘Jesus Christ is come in the flesh’ is of God. Those who do not are of Satan and the Antichrist spirit!

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN: “Jesus Christ is come in the flesh”?

There are millions of babies born daily across the world. They are all born of flesh & blood. They have all “come in the flesh”. That is no miracle, but when God is incarnated in human flesh, that is a miracle. It simply means that Jesus Christ was God in human flesh! God the Son came down from Heaven, through the very miraculous and complex process of the virgin birth!

God the Holy Spirit placed within the virgin Mary’s womb a specially created body for the Lord Jesus. He was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin woman without the aid of a human father. Jesus Christ - true God & true man, in order to suffer and die for our sins and rise again for our justification. ( )

“The new United Church curriculum - now taught to thousands of children - denies the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, leaving the inference that Joseph or some other man was Jesus’ father. This would indicate that His mother Mary was sinful and promiscuous, instead of a chaste virgin and that Jesus Christ was not divine!

Have you heard of such SACRILEGE? And this - not from an atheistic journal - but from the official organ and pulpits of Canada’s largest Protestant denomination!

That same ‘curriculum’ calls the first eleven chapters of Genesis - which deal with God’s marvelous creation, Noah and the flood - a fable or myth! It denies the miracles in the Bible, rejects the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and ridicules His ascension and second coming!

Read the blasphemous statements made by Rev. Ben Smilie- United Church chaplain at the University of Saskatchewan, as chronicled by Regina Leader Post’s Tom Jarvis in an article titled, ‘A MASSIVE IRRELEVANCY’:

“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 heard of anything more blasphemous and anti-Christian, coming from the pen of an ordained Protestant clergyman!

We’ll let the moderator of the United Church speak for himself. The following was carried by the Saskatoon Star Phoenix, June 5, 1965. ‘HOWSE SAYS LITERAL BELIEVER 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 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 thirty years ago. If people are shocked by it, then it is evident our ministers have not been adequately teaching their congregations”.

Bill Phipps probably learned ‘APOSTACY’ from professors, who were themselves corrupted while in College! The new moderator of the United Church is Rev. Bill Phipps - a little known Calgary pastor - who is making big waves with his outspoken, irreverent and blasphemous remarks. It appears that he has excelled in unlearning the basic, fundamental doctrines of Christianity, in the tradition of the Rev. Howse and the liberal theological College to which he referred!

‘AN ACTIVIST MODERATOR IS ROCKING THE UNITED CHURCH’               -Edmonton Journal

In a major news story carried across Canada in the Southam Press, Nov.1, 1997, Rev. Phipps made these statements: “I don’t believe Jesus is the only way to God. I don’t believe he rose from the dead as a scientific fact. I don’t know whether those thing happened. It’s an irrelevant question.”

In a follow-up article, the ‘Ottawa Citizen’ wrote: ‘CHURCH MODERATOR A HERETIC, PROFESSOR SAYS’ - “The moderator of the United Church of Canada is a heretic, says a professor of modern Christian history.

“A heretic is defined as someone who chooses a doctrinal path other than that of the church to which he belongs”, says John Stackhouse, of the University of Manitoba.

“By that standard, Rev. Bill Phipps “is a heretic according to the United Church of Canada’s own standard of doctrine. He’s also a heretic in generic Christian terms, because he denies the creeds that all Christians have subscribed to, whether they’re Catholic, Protestant or Eastern Orthodox.”

“In interviews with media organizations, Phipps denied the divinity of Christ, denied the reality of the resurrection as a historical fact, and said he was unclear ‘The historic Church says there are such realities, which are crucially important to human life,’ said Stackhouse, a former president of the Canadian Evangelical Theological Association.”

End times, Vital signs of end times, Bible scriptures messages end timesTHE WHOLESALE BACKSLIDING OF CHRISTIAN DENOMINATIONS DURING THESE PAST THIRTY YEARS, AND ESPECIALLY THE LAST DECADE, SIGNALS THE SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS IN THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH AT THIS VERY CRUCIAL MOMENT IN HISTORY - THE TURN OF THE CENTURY AND THE MILLENNIUM!

A very sad commentary on the Church is found in Christ’s message to the Church where He states:

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.” (Rev. 3:14-18)

Again He said, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits...

“A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

“...Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven...And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (Matt. 7:15-23)

Jesus asked a very pertinent question: “...Nevertheless. When the son of man cometh will He find faith on the earth?” The answer is “not very much”! That is why He stated, “Strive to enter in at the straight gate, for many, I say unto you will seek to enter and shall not be able”. (Luke 13:24)

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14)

End times, Vital signs of end times, Bible scriptures messages end timesHOW MUST WE PREPARE FOR THE END TIMES AND TO BE SURE WE ARE 
READY FOR JESUS CHRIST'S SOON RETURN IN THE SECOND COMING?

St. Peter warned, “Make your calling and election sure...” (2 Peter 1:10) It behooves each one to do a reality check to be absolutely certain that you know Jesus Christ personally as your Lord & Saviour.

Remember that Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose again from the dead for our justification. Only He has the power to save you because He is the Redeemer of the world.

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me”. (John 14:6) “I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:9-10)

The Bible says, “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;” (1 Tim. 2:5) “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

St. Paul declared, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Phil. 2:5-11)

Jesus Christ invites us to receive Him as personal Saviour and Lord with the promise: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28) And, “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)

We are warned: “But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.” (1 Corinthians 11:28)   Amen.
