Bible articles sermons Jesus Christ, healing, faith, salvation, eternal lifeA LEGENDARY EVANGELIST - Dr. Max Solbrekken
Posted by VisionHeaven on Tuesday, June 12, 2013

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.

Those events convinced me that God and his Word are still relevant and he can perform miracles today as he did 2000 years ago.

Since that time Max has been everywhere, in Africa, Asia, Latin America, USA and Europe preaching the good news of Jesus Christ.  He has seen people healed, saved and transformed by the power of Jesus Christ.  Here is the half hour TV show with Max Solbrekken.  click to watch interview.

Bible articles sermons Jesus Christ, healing, faith, salvation, eternal lifeRUSHING TOWARDS SODOM
by: Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

Judge Robert Bork wrote the book, 'Slouching towards Gomorrah'.  We are nearer now and moving more quickly.  We are today 'Rushing Towards Sodom".  Let us all pray for God's mercy through Jesus Christ our Lord!        - Pastor Max Solbrekken

"And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto Me, and if not I will know.  And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom; but Abraham stood yet before the Lord." (Genesis 18:20-22)

JUDGE ROBERT BORK who was nominated to the US Supreme Court by President Ronald Reagan and rejected by the Liberal Democratic Congress, is considered the most honest, intelligent and conservative Judge in recent times!

Robert Bork wrote the book 'Slouching Towards Gomorrah' in which he documents the downward escalation of the degenerative, corrupting and perverted morals in America.  It is an excellent book and not only catalogues the fallacy of liberalism and the sick liberal mind, but also issues a stern warning of the dire consequences of such perversion!

The Holy Bible records the destruction of SODOM and GOMORRAH because of the wickedness of their sins.  So vile were the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah that the cries of those who were wounded and harmed by the perversion, had reached heaven itself.

Predators had been sexually abusing little boys, causing pain, heartbreak and anger and turned those tormented young men into sexual predators also.  It was a known fact that it was lawful to gang rape any newcomer to Sodom. (Genesis 19:4-9)

The ancient Jewish Babylonian Talmud states that the horrible, filthy SIN of homosexuality was not only condoned but had become a legal, normal lifestyle, until God's mercy ran out and He decided to wipe those cities off the face of the earth.

UNDER THE JUDGMENT OF GOD !

It is a tragedy that in this generation, for the first time since the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, a number of nations have legalized 'man-on-man' same-sex marriage.  How sad that this had happened!  For the first time in 5,000 years, since God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, Christian nations actually flaunt and boast about their corruption by publicly thumbing their noses at Almighty God's laws!

And even as perverted as Sodom and Gomorrah were, God gave Abraham the privilege to plead for their lives.  Almighty God's love, mercy and grace shone through as He patiently listened to Abraham's intercession on their behalf.  The Bible states: "And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt Thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?" (Genesis 18:23)

We know that the answer to that question is NO!  Here we learn the art of INTERCESSION:  The Righteous interceding for the wicked!  Abraham started by asking the Almighty if He would spare Sodom if there were fifty righteous people in the city.  The LORD answered that He would NOT destroy Sodom if there were fifty righteous living there.

Abraham continued interceding and each time he lowered the bar in order to spare the city - his request was granted - proving the mercy of God!  

Here is his final request: "And he said, Oh, let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure TEN shall be found there.  And He (the Lord) said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake.  And the Lord went His way, as soon as He had left communing with Abraham." (Genesis 18:24-33)

ABRAHAM WANTED TO SAVE LOT'S FAMILY

The sad truth is that there were not ten righteous people in Sodom.  Two angels brought Lot, his wife and two daughters out of the city before the judgment of God destroyed Sodom, Gomorrah and the cities of the plains.  The angels warned them not to look back, but Lot's wife turned to look back and became a pillar of salt.

"And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place: for the Lord will destroy this city.  But he seemed as  one that mocked unto his sons in laws.  And when the morning arose, the two angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity (punishment) of the city."

"And while he lingered, the men (angels) laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the Lord being merciful unto him; and they brought him forth and set him without the city.  And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; LOOK NOT BEHIND THEE...."

"Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from heaven; And He overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground."

"But his wife looked back and became a pillar of salt." (Genesis 19:7, 22-29)  Her heart was in the city.  She had children and other relatives there.  She made a fatal mistake by disobeying the Angel of God, by looking back to Sodom.  And Jesus Christ warned: "Remember Lot's Wife!" (Luke 17:32)

What is the lesson for us today?  We must not look back or go back into the filthy sins from which we have escaped through the mercy of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In His condemnation of Jerusalem, God equated their sins with that of Sodom.  He stated that Jerusalem's sins were twice as grievous as those of Samaria.  The Holy Bible states:

"Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom: pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.  And they were haughty and committed abomination before Me, therefore I took them away as I saw good." (Ezekiel 16:49-50)

THE FIVE SINS OF SODOM

God is merciful, good and kind.  He doesn't judge sinners immediately, but gives everyone the grace to turn back to Him. They had a haughty spirit, making their own rules.  They were not thankful, neither did they give God the honour, worship and praise He is entitled to.  Tragically, people often backslide and fall into sin gradually.

In his powerful letter to the Romans, who had earlier come out of pagan worship to serve the Living God, St. Paul enumerated the steps people often take in this regard;  Here is how many fall away and why God has to judge them so severely:

"For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known to God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them.  For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead so that they are without excuse:

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

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

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

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

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind to do those things which are not convenient (not appropriate).  Here is the downward progression that can take a person to lowest depth of perversion and demon possession:

No. 1:  THEY KNEW GOD - Almighty God had revealed Himself to them through His creation.  He had shown them the truth, but they had rejected the truth and did not glorify Him as God and were not thankful.  They became vain (empty) in their imaginations.

No. 2:  THEIR FOOLISH HEARTS WERE DARKENED - Professing themselves to be wise they became fools.  They forsook the light of God's Word and rejected their Creator, believing they knew more than He.

No. 3:  THEY BEGAN WORSHIPPING CREATED THINGS - They exchanged the glory of the Living God for an image of created things and began worshipping the creature instead of the Creator.  Rather than worship the Creator, they worshipped animals and creeping things, as well as their own bodies!

No. 4:  THEY BECAME PERVERTED IN THEIR MINDS -   They dishonored their bodies through unnatural and perverted sex; men on men and women on women, bringing God's judgment upon themselves!

THE NUMBER ONE SIN WAS PRIDE

THE FIRST SIN was the sin of pride - They considered themselves so great, powerful and intelligent that they were ABOVE THE LAW.  They would make their own laws, which led to perversion!  

THE SECOND SIN was fulness of bread.  They were so prosperous that they had too much of everything.  They had their fun and games and feasts with revellings and drunkenness!

THE THIRD SIN was an abundance of idleness.  They were getting handouts from their perverted leaders to spend more time pursuing pleasures!  More time to spend at the casino, in the bars and bath houses and doing their violence and thuggery!

THE FOURTH SIN was a lack of compassion for the poor and needy!  No time for anyone but themselves.  Selfishness, jealousy, envy, hatred, lying, stealing, killing, gambling and raping.  A City given over to deceit and corruption with no thought about those that they hurt and neglected.

Finally, they spiraled out of control and wallowed in the sin of sexual perversion!  And God said - Game in over - It is time to pay for your sins, Sodom and Gomorrah!

JUDGE ROBERT BORK wrote about America, 'Slouching Toward Gomorrah'.  If he were alive today, I'm sure he would agree with me that the world is "Rushing Towards Sodom'.  May God help us to turn our faces to the wall like King Hezekiah and cry out for mercy and forgiveness for ourselves, our neighbours and our Nation before it is everlastingly too late!  Amen.


Bible articles sermons Jesus Christ, healing, faith, salvation, eternal lifeWhy was
 JESUS CHRIST BORN?
Jesus Christ was born to to destroy the works of the devil

Sin, 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)

The devil had caused previous disruption and chaos. (Genesis 1:2;  Ezekiel 28:13-19;  Isaiah 14:12-17).

Because 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)

Jesus, why was Jesus born? Jesus was born to destroy the devilGOD CALLED ADAM WHERE ART THOU?

The 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 times NO.

Adam & 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.

But where was Satan (the devil)?  Where was the evil one who had been their wise tempter such a short time ago?

Of 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.

Jesus, why was Jesus born? Jesus was born to destroy the devilTHE DEVIL REJOICED OVER ADAM & EVE'S FEAR & TERROR

Evil satisfaction filled the devil's heart as he observed Adam & Eve's plight, their complete confusion, perplexity, fear and terror.

Adam & 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?"

As God called Adam that day, He is still calling you and me. "John, where are you?  Mary, where are you?"

Adam 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 you"?

Adam 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".

Jesus, why was Jesus born? Jesus was born to destroy the devilEVERYONE LIKES TO PASS THE BLAME TO SOMEONE ELSE

It 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."

It's 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 shouted.

At 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.

A 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"?

He 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.

Adam 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).

Bible articles sermons Jesus Christ, healing, faith, salvation, eternal lifeTHE DEVIL IS TO BLAME

God 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."

I 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.

SATAN (the devil) IS TO BLAME.  Shout it loud and clear - the devil is the troublemaker.

JESUS CALLED THE DEVIL A LAIR & MURDERER

Jesus 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)

Bible articles sermons Jesus Christ, healing, faith, salvation, eternal lifeYES - THE DEVIL IS TO BLAME FOR ALL SIN

God said, "THE SEED OF THE WOMAN SHALL BRUISE THE SERPENT'S HEAD."

Almighty 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)

It is noteworthy that some scientists believe that at one time serpents and snakes walked upright and didn't crawl on their bellies as today.

"And 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..."

JESUS DEFEATED THE DEVIL WITH HIS DEATH ON THE CROSS

On 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.

When 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..

The 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)

Jesus, why was Jesus born? Jesus was born to destroy the devilWHY DID JESUS COME INTO THE WORLD?

The 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 3:16-17)  Hallelujah.

The 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 Timothy 2:5)

JESUS CAME THAT WE MIGHT HAVE LIFE

Jesus 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)

WHAT DID ISAIAH PROPHESY?

Hear 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)

The 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)

Jesus, why was Jesus born? Jesus was born to destroy the devilTHERE IS ONLY ONE WAY - JESUS CHRIST IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH & THE LIFE

Jesus 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)

Bible articles sermons Jesus Christ, healing, faith, salvation, eternal lifeWHY DID JESUS HAVE TO DIE?

The 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 18:20)

In 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.

The 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 1:7)

Jesus 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.

And 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."

"And 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."

"And 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." (Revelation 5:5-13)

Jesus, why was Jesus born? Jesus was born to destroy the devilJESUS SPOILED SATAN'S KINGDOM

The 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.

We serve a risen Saviour,  he's in the world today.  I know that 
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 lives....He lives...Christ Jesus lives today.
He walks with me and talks with me,  along life's narrow way.

He lives...He lives....Salvation to impart....
You ask me how I know He lives....He lives...within my heart.

What 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.

"The 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 church." (Ephesians 1:18-22)

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)

St. 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)

In 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)

"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 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." (Philippians 2:5-11)

Jesus, why was Jesus born? Jesus was born to destroy the devilTHIS DAY IS THE SCRIPTURE FULFILLED

The 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!

"And 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,

"The 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 Lord."

"And 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)

Jesus 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.

The 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)

He 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. (Hebrews 9:11-14)

The 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.

My dear friend, Let me admonish you to receive him into your heart and life as your Lord, Saviour, Redeemer, Healer, Baptizer and King.

Jesus, why was Jesus born? Jesus was born to destroy the devilJESUS CAME TO SEEK & SAVE THE LOST

Jesus 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'!

You 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.

The 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)

Jesus 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 28:20)
