HOW TO OVERCOME DEPRESSION, FEAR & ANXIETY   

The Bible says, "For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of love, power, and a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7)

FEAR - MANKIND'S GREATEST FOE

"So first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing to fear is fear itself - names, unreasoning, unjustified terror."  - Franklin D. Roosevelt

The deacon, Phillip, broke tradition by preaching in Samaria, among that city’s Jewish-extracted, mixed-race population. Cornelius’ household were the first Romans to accept the gospel - two years later - when ‘Shimon bar Yonah’ (St. Peter) preached to them.

A number of recent news stories highlighted the growing fear by many people, due to the increase of terrorism, world disasters, wars, tsunamis, terrorist attack, earthquakes, world viruses and diseases.

fear, depression, anxiety - How to be free from anxiety and fear, help for depressionFEAR IS A UNIVERSAL ENEMY

Fear and anxiety are universal enemies and certainly not a new enemy.  Fear had its beginning with Adam's rebellion and fall, in the Garden of Eden.  After Adam and Eve had disobeyed God's directive to them, fear entered their hearts.

"And Adam said, I heard Thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I am naked, and I hid myself."  (Genesis 3:10)

IN THE LAST DAYS "MEN'S HEARTS WILL FAIL THEM FOR FEAR"

That the slavish tentacles of fear are spreading and increasing in intensity is also prophetical.  Jesus declared that in the last days "men's hearts" will fail them for fear...." (Luke 21:26)

THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IS HEART DISEASE

The leading cause of death is heart disease.  People are suffering from strain, anxiety and stress is adversely affecting a large number of men and woman.  Alcohol consumption, drug abuse and anxiety attacks are increasing, all contributing to heart disease.

CANCER IS #2 LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH.  FEAR IS A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR

Cancer is the #2 killer and medical science believes "fear" is a contributor - because it constructs the vessels carrying blood to affect areas.

Cigarette smoking is a major cause of heart disease and sickness, why why do people smoke?  Often, because they are uptight, nervous, anxious and afraid!

fear, depression, anxiety - How to be free from anxiety and fear, help for depressionFEAR & DEPRESSION ARE THE GREATEST "ENEMIES" AMONG US

Fear is "the enemy" among us and is taking a tremendous toll, psychologically, economically, domestically and physically.  As well as politically, both nationally and world wide.

Fear is our "greatest enemy" and it hinders growth in business, impedes academic progress, breaks up families and keeps people out of church.

Fear is often the cause of strife, worry, bitterness, resentment, jealousy and hatred.  But fear can be conquered and driven out of our lives!

Many years ago, USA President Herbert Hoover stated: The dominant emotion everywhere in the world s FEAR.

Many years ago, USA President Herbert Hoover stated: "The dominant emotion everywhere in the world is FEAR.  This applies to every part of human activities - finance, industry, farmers, workers, thinkers and government officials."

THE ATLANTIC CHARTER - USA President Roosevelt

The Atlanta Charter, drawn up by US President Theodore Roosevelt and Britain's Sir Winston Churchill is still heralded as one of history's greatest documents, championing the common liberties of mankind.

It contained four essential freedoms:  freedom from want, freedom from fear, freedom of speech and freedom of religion

New York City's Dr. David Mitchell declared, humans are born with only 2 fears, sound of a sudden noise, and unexpected removal of support or falling!

There are however many unreal, imagined and unreasonable fears which plague mankind.  These we must reject in order to enjoy good mental health and peace of mind.

Neurologists believe that the lower central part of the brain called the thalamus is the center of all emotions; this is where fearful thoughts issue from.  The nerve center is also where affection and love are born.

It is therefore important that we sort out our thoughts and allow only those that are sane, sensible, wholesome and truthful stay in our minds.

The Bible says: "As he thinketh in his heart, so is he".

And St. Paul admonished: "Whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of good report...think on these things." (Philippians 4:8)

PHOBIAS - THERE ARE MORE THAN 40 DOCUMENTS PHOBIAS

There are more than 40 phobias that harass humanity today - from ailurophobes (the fear of cats) to zoophobia (the fear of animals in general).  And there is healing for everyone - through faith in Jesus Christ - and some old fashioned common sense.

JESUS CHRIST CAN HEAL YOUR FEARS & PHOBIAS - IF YOU TRUST IN HIM

The Bible says, "For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of love, power and a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7)

President Roosevelt stated: "The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself", and the Bible says, "....perfect love casts out all fears." (1 John 4:18)

Bible verses on fear, scriptures kjv on fear, How to overcome fear. Jesus says, Fear thou not. How to overcome fear, anxiety, addictions, depression. Jesus Christ offers peace and freedomWHAT IS THE OPPOSITE EMOTION OF FEAR

What is the opposite of fear.  It is FAITH.  Faith brings us peace and tranquility!

Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." (John 14:27)

The Bible says, "Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through Whom also we have access by faith in to this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.: (Romans 5:1-2)

Since perfect love removes all fears, it is good to know that God is love and His love has reached out to us through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross for us!

And because He rose from the dead and is not only the testator but the executor of His own will - through the Holy Spirit - we are assured of His total peace and healing for spirit, soul (mind) and body.

THE SPIRIT OF FEAR

Anxiety, fear, depression and addictions. How to overcome fear, anxiety, addictions, depression. Jesus Christ offers peace and freedom from depression, fear and anxiety. Bible scriptures on fear, anxiety, faith, peace, joyHOW TO OVERCOME FEAR & ANXIETY

The Bible says, "For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of love, power, and a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7)

Fear, Spirit of fear, God's word on the Spirit of Fear, Are fear & anxiety controlling you, How to overcome fear, anxiety. Jesus Christ offers peace and freedom from fear and anxietyMY PEACE I GIVE TO YOU - LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED

"For the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, FEAR NOT, I will help thee." (Isaiah 41:13)

Anxiety, fear and depression. Help for overcoming fear, anxiety. Bible scriptures articles on fear, the spirit of fear and how to overcome fearWHAT IS FEAR?  AND WHAT DOES FEAR DO TO US?

Fear is a corrupting, constricting and crippling agent! Fear corrupts us.  Fear consumes the thoughts and controls the mind.

Fear is divisive, demeaning and destructive! Fear creates a divided heart which brings only condemnation and confusion.

When we allow fear in our minds and in our hearts, we are not allowing the Lord to give us the peace that he promises us in the scriptures.

The Word of God states: "Fear thou not, for I am with thee"

The Holy Scriptures declare: ”There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” (1 John 4: 17-18)

The Bible states, "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and He shall direct thy paths."

Fear destroys the perfect love that God gives us by the unbelief it breeds in our hearts!  When we put our full trust in the Lord, we give him our troubles and our fears.  We are released from fear through the Lord Jesus Christ, and as we walk with Him, read the Word of God and pray, he gives us perfect peace.

The Bible says, "Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not:  behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense: he will come and save you."  (Isaiah 35:4)

It constricts the flow of the Holy Spirit and reduces the fruit that faith produces! Its crippling effect erodes the peace and joy that results from receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.

Why? Fear hampers the normal functions of the Gifts of the Spirit, making victims and spiritual cripples of servants and emissaries of our Lord.

Anxiety, fear, depression and addictions. How to overcome fear, anxiety, addictions, depression. Jesus Christ offers peace and freedom from depression, fear and anxiety. Bible scriptures on fear, anxiety, faith, peace, joyThe Bible states: ”But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” (James 1: 7-8)

The deacon, Phillip, broke tradition by preaching in Samaria, among that city’s Jewish-extracted, mixed-race population. Cornelius’ household were the first Romans to accept the gospel - two years later - when ‘Shimon bar Yonah’ (St. Peter) preached to them.

Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you, not as the world gives do I give to you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." (John 14:27)

Since God does not give anyone the spirit of fear, it is evident that fear comes from Satan, and Satan is the ENEMY of God.  Satan is also the enemy of man.

When Jesus'  powerful blood sweeps over our souls, fear must leave immediately!  There is no room for Satanic bondage of any kind in the life of a Christian.

"Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God:  I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."  (Isaiah 41:10)

A marvelous story of faith has come to us from the Second World War:

In the Battle of Britain, the German Luftwaffe rained down about thirty-five thousand bombs upon London during nightly air raids, causing terrifying fear and tremendous destruction and mayhem in large parts of the city.

For months, as sirens wailed out warnings of approaching German bombers, the general population automatically hurried toward the nearest Air Raid Shelter! People learned to look after one another during the nightly raids and the ’morning after’ walk abouts and clean-ups.

After a terrible night of bombardment, an elderly woman was not seen in a certain neighborhood for several days. Her neighbors assumed that she had either been killed by the falling bombs or that she had gone to the countryside to escape the danger, disruption of life and incessant noise.

Some time later, a neighbor spotted the elderly woman walking down the street and articulated his happiness that she was alive and well.

"It’s nice to see you back", he said.  "I have not been away", she replied.

"Where have you been?" he asked.  "I’ve been at home", said the woman.

"What have you been doing at home during the air raids?” inquired the neighbor.

"Sleeping", she answered.

"How could you sleep with all the noise and explosions?" he asked.

"Oh", she replied, "I was reading my Bible and found in Psalms 121: 4 where it declares that God doesn’t slumber nor sleep, so I thought there was no point in both of us staying awake."

The Bible says: ”Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea. I will uphold  thee with with the right hand of My righteousness.” (Isaiah 41: 10)

Anxiety, fear, depression and addictions. How to overcome fear, anxiety, addictions, depression. Jesus Christ offers peace and freedom from depression, fear and anxiety. Bible scriptures on fear, anxiety, faith, peace, joyFEAR IS A UNIVERSAL ENEMY

Fear is demeaning because it makes you think, say and do things that makes you look foolish, puts you outside the will of God and is out of character with Christian living! It is destructive because it destroys your confidence in God and His Word and therefore your fellowship with Him.

The Bible confirms: ”For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.” (1 John 3: 20-22)

What is the underlying cause of condemnation? Plain and simple: Sin.

And what is the antidote or solution for the serious problem of sin? The answer in a nutshell, is the Blood of Jesus.

What can wash away my sin?

The Bible says: ”If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sins. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all sins.” (1 John 1: 7,9)

When the sin is cleansed away, condemnation leaves and faith leaps to the forefront! Then, miracles occur as God answers prayer in response to sincere faith-filled petitions coming from a clean heart!.

Fear brings trepidation, torment and terror! It is an enemy, but fear can be neutralized, beaten and vanquished.

The Bible states: ”God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of love and power and a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7)

Since God does not give anyone the spirit of fear, it is evident that fear comes from Satan, Satan who is the ENEMY of God. Satan is the enemy of man.

The Holy Scriptures declare: ”There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” (1 John 4: 17-18)

Jesus said: ”The thief (Satan) cometh not but for to steal, and to kill and to destroy. I am come that ye may have life, and that ye might have it more abundantly.” (John 10: 10)

Former alcoholic and drug addict, James Payne, wrote a Gospel song titled John 3: 16. Here are the lyrics:

"Alone one night at the end of my rope
In a hotel in Nashville praying for hope

In my hand was a Bible I had read as a child
On the table was the bottle that was driving me wild

I poured the whiskey into the glass
Praying that somehow I could forget my past
Then I remembered how Jesus had died on the tree
I poured out the whiskey and fell down on my knees
The night old Jack Daniels met John 3:16

God’s Word broke the chains that he had over me
I traded Tennessee whiskey for Calvary’s tree
The night Ol’ Jack Daniels met John 3: 16

That is the exact reaction of the spirit of fear meeting the blood of Jesus.

When Jesus'  powerful blood sweeps over our souls, fear must leave immediately!  There is no room for Satanic bondage of any kind in the life of a Christian.

The Blessed Holy Spirit makes us free from sin, free from guilt and free from fear. And He keeps us free for God’s glory.

US President Roosevelt stated: "The only thing to fear is fear itself."

In many cases that is true. Because fear is a spirit, when it digs its deceptive tentacles into a victim, raw fear often proves to be far worse than the object of the fear.

In Middle East folk lore there is story of a great warrior who meets a mythical rider called Death, carrying a gigantic scythe! . Addressing him, the warrior says: ” I have just come from a battle where I left 5,000 men dead.

Where have you been and where are going?” Replying, the mystical rider says: ”I have just left the area to which you are heading."

Inquiringly, the warrior asks: ”How many dead will I find there?” Death answers: ”The plague killed 5,000."

The next week, the great warrior again meets the mythical rider on the windswept desert. He hails the scythe - carrier with a shout: ”You lied to me. The plague left 50,000 dead . You told me that you had killed only 5,000!” Death replies: ”I told you the truth. 5,000 perished from the plague. The rest died of fear!"

An old adage says: ”Cowards die a thousand times before their death.

The valiant tastes of death but once!’ Without doubt, fear is a real enemy and robber. The Bible character Job, after having been attacked by Satan, confessed: ”The thing which I greatly feared is come upon me.” (Job 3: 25)

Anxiety, fear and depression. Help for overcoming fear, anxiety. Bible scriptures articles on fear, the spirit of fear and how to overcome fearDO NOT BE AFRAID - CALL UPON GOD IN TIMES OF TROUBLE

When things go wrong and it appears that the bottom has dropped out of everything, that is not the time to become afraid or to panic.

God’s Word says: ”And call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify Me.” (Psalms 50: 15) Jesus said: ”Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you life.” (Matthew 11: 28)


JESUS CHRIST DIED
 FOR YOU

#1 - JESUS CHRIST LOVES YOU

No more beautiful words were ever spoken by men or angels than these, "I know God loves me!"  Praise God. Say these precious words and believe them and you will see what a change will be affected within your life.

#2 - JESUS CHRIST KNOWS ALL ABOUT YOU

"For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him." (2 Chronicles 16:9)

"Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, just to take Him at His word, Just to rest upon His promise, Just to know, Thus saith the Lord."

In every situation of life God knows about you!  During every trial, heartbreak and discouragement in the temptations and struggles of life Jesus knows about us and makes a way of escape. (1 Corinthians 10:13)  God knows and He is ready to help - Say it to yourself, "God knows about my existence and He loves me - His eyes are upon me and I know everything will be alright."

#3 - JESUS CHRIST CARES ABOUT YOU

"Casting all your cares upon Him, for He careth for you." (1 Peter 5:7)

Life often seems like a rat race with dog eat dog and whoever gets in first get what he needs and whoever gets in last misses everything.  People can often be hardhearted and cruel - circumstances and situations can make life almost unbearable.  Many times Satan has filled peoples' hearts and minds with such tremendous disillusionment and depression that they have in utter hopelessness taken their own lives.

The hymn writer penned the words, "What a Friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and grief's to bear!  What a privilege to carry - Everything to God in prayer."

I am thrilled with the great news of God's love every time I hear it.  I am thrilled that God loves me, He knows all about me and that He cares about me - my difficulties and my needs.  Praise God!  Say it to yourself - "I know God cares about me and will help me!"

#4 - JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR YOU

"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)

You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.  No wonder the Apostle John wrote, "We love Him because He first loved us."  There is a word that is seldom used in today's world but one which is probably one of the most powerful in our vocabulary.  It is the word "Apodictic" and it means "Evident beyond contradictions".  It is one of my foremost words because it relates to the gospel and to Christ our wonderful Lord.  When you speak about God, His power, His words, His promises, His grace, His goodness and His mercy and love, the word Apodictic covers them all!

Evident beyond Contradiction!  His existence is so real that only a foolish person could try to contradict the fact!  No wonder the Bible says, "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God". (Psalm 14:1)

Jesus, who is Jesus, life of Jesus, Jesus Christ scriptures messagesNO. 5 ~ JESUS CHRIST AROSE FROM THE DEAD AND WILL HELP YOU TODAY

A dead man has no power to help anyone - He cannot even help himself! That is why so many traditional churches and nominal Christians receive no answers to their prayers and have no victory in their lives. They believe in and worship a dead Christ. They wear crucifixes that have a resemblance of Christ, dead on the cross. Beloved friends, the cross is empty - Jesus Christ is alive for evermore with all power at His disposal.

He has the power to set His children free from every bondage and situation in which we find ourselves that is embarrassing, improper, humiliating and painful.

“Lo behold the man of sorrow, lo behold Him in plain view. There He stands that mighty conqueror, since He rent the veil in two."

“I 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. You ask me how I know He lives, He lives within my heart.” Hallelujah.

The very essence of Christianity, the heart of the gospel and the foundation truth of the church is that Jesus Christ, God’s Son died upon a cross for our sins and that He was raised from the dead on the third day for our Justification! (1 Corinthians 15:1-4)

Of all religions only Christianity can boast a resurrection and only Christ is a Saviour, for He only is Alive Forevermore. Praise His Name.

Jesus, who is Jesus, life of Jesus, Jesus Christ scriptures messagesJESUS IS THE ONLY WAY

No wonder Peter said, “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)

Why? Because the name of a dead man can save no one but Jesus is not dead HE IS ALIVE FOREVERMORE! Hallelujah. His entire ministry while upon this earth revolved around preaching the gospel, healing the sick, forgiving the sinful, restoring the diseased back to health, feeding the hungry and raising the dead. 

When He was crucified His ministry came to an end abruptly - until 50 days later - after He had risen from the dead and spent 40 days with His disciples He ascended into heaven and poured out upon His followers the “Baptism of the Holy Ghost.” (Acts 1:4-8; 2:1-4) Then His ministry continued greater than ever through those who believed upon Him - The blind saw, the deaf heard, the lame walked, the dead were raised and the gospel was preached to multitudes.

“Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms. 

And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping and praising God.” (Acts 3:1-9)

“And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch. And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them. And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.)

“Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.” (Acts 5:12-16)

Jesus, who is Jesus, life of Jesus, Jesus Christ scriptures messagesTHE GREAT COMMISSION

It is evident the Book of Acts is a continuation of the ministry of Jesus Christ through His followers by the power of the Holy Spirit, and that it is God’s will for His power to continue to bring blessing and healing to His people in every generation until the church age is over and Christ sets up His kingdom and ushers in the millennium - 

Notice His words to all who believe, “And he said unto them, 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 hands on the sick, and they shall recover”. (Mark 16:15-18)

The Holy Bible says, “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” (Acts 2:38-39)

If you are called, you are saved and if you are saved, the baptism of the Holy Ghost and power is for you! Again see what St. James writes to the church, “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: and the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him”. (James 5:14,15)

Jesus, who is Jesus, life of Jesus, Jesus Christ scriptures messagesTHE SCRIPTURE CANNOT BE BROKEN

Now in closing let us see what Jesus Himself said concerning praying and receiving an answer....

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” (Matthew 7:7,8)

“Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me: or else believe Me for the very works' sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it.” (John 14:11-14)

“Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” (Mark 9:23)

“Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 18:19)

“If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” (John 15:7)

My beloved friend, Jesus Christ is indeed alive and waiting to hear from you. If you will accept Him as your personal Saviour and trust in Him you will definitely receive answers to your prayers and the assurance that all is well with your soul, for He has promised and guaranteed you that His word is true and the scripture cannot be broken. (John 10:35)

Amen.

 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.

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".

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).

The Indestructible Gospel of Jesus Christ. Why is gospel of Jesus Christ indestructible? Proof of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.Bible articles messages, sermons and teaching by Pastor Max SolbrekkeTHE 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)

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..."

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)

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)

(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)

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)

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)

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 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)


WHOSE SIDE ARE
YOU ON?
by: Rev. Max Solbrekken, D.D.

CHAPTER 1:  TWO ROADS

Millions today are groping in the darkness of despair as they journey down life's road toward eternity!

Multitudes have not found the way of true happiness and joy and are searching for peace and an answer to life’s problems, heartaches and ills.  Many others have known the true essence of life but somehow have gone astray, lost the way and are haphazardly adrift on the sea of life.

The saying goes, “When in Rome do as the Romans do”, or “Follow the crowd”.  The great bulk of humanity are doing just that.  They are following the crowd.  Take the easy way out or the path of least resistance.  The sad part is that the crowd is not always right, and the path of least resistance is often the wrong path which becomes a rut into which the journeyer finds himself bogged down.  Chained by bad habits and inability to say “No” to evil suggestions and fettered by wicked companions, such a person becomes an easy mark for Satan.

My dear friend, perhaps you are one of the restless multitudes in this rut, the broad road that the Bible speaks of which will eventually take you to doom and damnation in Hell, unless you repent of your sins and get off this road.

The Bible says:  “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man; but the end thereof are the ways of death”. (Proverbs 16:25)

It seems natural to do what others are doing, however, the natural man is often motivated by the lusts, greed and prides of this wicked world.  The Carnal man is sinful and out of fellowship with the righteousness of God.  Therefore, the natural man is at enmity with God.

God's word states: “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God:  for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.” (Romans 8:7);  “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God?  whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God,” (James 4:4) Sinful man cannot do good unless God intervenes and changes his nature through the process of new birth: “Jesus answered and said unto him, verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3)

Look around and follow the current events in the news media to realize that this world is corrupt and continually getting worse with wars, social and political upheavals, increases in the crime rate, immorality, sex perversion and broken homes.

FOLLOWING THE CROWD: A BAD IDEA! 

In other words, the CROWD is corrupt and getting worse. If you follow this crowd you will find yourself in bad company and serious trouble spiritually! The Bible says, “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)  Jesus urged, “Strive to enter in at the strait gate:  for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able”. (Luke 13:24). To strive means to “put some effort” into finding the right way.

It must be very important to enter the straight gate or Jesus would not have admonished us to STRIVE TO ENTER IN.  The reason is that the wrong road leads to an eternal hell, and the right one takes you to Heaven.  The Bible says:  “Wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction and many there be which go in thereat”.

Many are on this broad road because the gate is wide enough to take in everyone, regardless of a person’s wickedness, evil habits or unrighteous companions.  There is plenty of room, and no questions asked - that is of course, until it is too late to get off.  The murderer travels this road together with the gambler, drunkard, liar and thief.

It is the broad road and is easy travelling because this road has a slight downward grade, although not very noticeable at the start.  The self-righteous Church member who has never been saved together with the modernistic theologian, the atheist and the communist, all have plenty of room to travel without even rubbing shoulders, because the road is so wide.

The alcoholic, drug user, the unfaithful, deceptive wife or husband, rich and poor, well and sick, young and old, respected and despised, educated and illiterate, bond and free, all may travel.

Caution is thrown to the winds and off you go merrily on your way - the music blares and you sail along!  TRAVEL NOW - PAY LATER, SEEMS TO BE THE SLOGAN - Yes, this is the broad road to destruction.  JESUS warns you to get off it NOW. Don't stay on it a minute longer. Jump off it immediately and enter the Straight Gate onto the NARROW Road that leads to LIFE and Eternal Bliss!

DO YOU KNOW WHICH ROAD YOU ARE ON?

You may ask, “How do I know which road I am on?”  I am glad you ask that question, because I have the answer for you.  The Bible says, “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”. (Romans 3:23)  “There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 2:10)  “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me”. (Psalms 51:5)

The Scripture tells us that through Adam’s transgression the whole human race was plunged into sin.  “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.”  (Romans 5:12)  Through the Scripture we see that everyone is born in sin and because of the fall, the human race inherited the stigma of sin.

Secondly, we learn that man’s nature is sinful and he is a sinner by choice.  The Bible says: “All we, like sheep, have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”( Isaiah 53:6) ; “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked:  who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9)

“The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.  They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.  The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.  They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” (Psalms 14:1-3)

We have now established the fact that all human beings are sinners, not only by birth and nature, but also by choice.  Jesus exhorts everyone to, “Enter into the strait gate”, because everyone naturally is on the broad road to start with, and must turn off to get on the right road.

ALL A SINNER MUST DO TO GO TO HELL IS TO CONTINUE WHAT HE IS DOING, but there is a way of escape. There is a way out and salvation is available for everyone who believes and turns to the Lord. Jesus Christ came to redeem us and save us from our sins, the power of Satan and the broad road.

Lost souls must call out to God for mercy, receive His wonderful salvation - purchased by Christ’s blood and get on the narrow road and enter the straight gate which takes us to Heaven.  Jesus said: “Except a man be born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God”. (John 3: 5)

Here is your answer - All those who have not had a personal encounter with Jesus Christ, been born again by the incorruptible Word of God and by the Spirit of God and had their sins washed away by “the precious blood”, is on the broad road and lost in their sins!

NOT VERY MANY ARE GOING TO BE SAVED!

The Bible states that because, “Wide is the gate and broad is the road”, many will go in thereat.  The broad road is crowded with journeyers travelling toward their doom and destruction.  In Matthew 7:14, the Bible declares, “Because strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life and few there be that find it”.  He asked how many would be saved? He answered: “Strive to enter in at the strait gate:  for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able”. (Luke 13:24)

The Gate to Heaven is straight - no crookedness can enter there.  Foolish pride must be swept away.  There is no room for human reasoning because the gate will not move, be enlarged or slanted to take in the new ideology, theories or curricula of sinful, carnal humanity.  Some preach that there are many ways to be saved and gain admittance into the Kingdom of God.

This is utterly false.  “Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life:  no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” (John 14:6)

Jesus did not say, I am one of the ways, but He said I AM THE WAY.  No wonder our Lord said, “Strait is the gate”, for that gate will not bend or expand to accept any other doctrines or beliefs except the words, teachings and doctrine of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God.  The gate that Jesus spoke of will not conform or change to fit the traditions or customs of a changing world and a carnal, secular society.  NO, THANK GOD!  The Gate that leads to God and Heaven is FIXED forever and is as unchanging as God Himself.

Anyone entering this gate must humble himself, and in order to enter the straight gate must do so on his knees  leaving behind him all his unbelief, pride, lust and greed.  There is no room for excess baggage as the individual passes through this gate.  Webster’s Dictionary defines the word “straight” as Jesus used it here as, “Being in a right line”.  That right line is God’s way - none other will do!

The hymn writer penned the words

“Just as I am without one plea,
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bidst me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God I come, I come.”

Without exception, everyone must come the same way, and there is no respect of persons - rich and poor, educated and illiterate, wise and foolish - all must come in through the same gate and conform to the straightness of this gate.  There is no favoritism or partiality.

There is only one way to God, Heaven and eternal life.  It is a definite, certain and fixed way, and that way is Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world.  Jesus said, “I am the door:  by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved”. (John 10:9).  Here Jesus emphasizes that there is only one door, and to be saved we must come through Him.

There are not many doors to God’s Kingdom, but one only - the Lord Jesus Christ.  Jesus says, “No man cometh unto the Father, but by Me”. (John 14:6)  There it is!  Mohammed, Buddha, Confucius, Shiva or the Pope  will not do - the Virgin Mary, St. Peter or the angel Moroni cannot save you.  There is no other way to be saved than by and through God’s Divine Resurrected Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.  St. Peter declared, “There is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved”. (Acts 4:12)

THERE ARE MILLIONS OF GODS!

The heathen have millions of gods and false Christs, but there is only ONE TRUE CHRIST and His Name is the Lord Jesus Christ - the only one who is able to save you.  The Bible says, “There is one mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus”. (1 Timothy 2:5)  Jesus Christ the resurrected Saviour is the mediator between Almighty God and sinful man.

Millions of people seek peace and forgiveness by bathing in some river or by having holy water - supposedly blessed by a religious person - sprinkled upon them.  Others, by making pilgrimages to shrines, reciting repetitious prayers continually, counting beads or doing penance by lying on spikes, walking on coals of fire, beating themselves and even carrying a cross on their back or abstaining from food.

BUT, OH, HOW FUTILE!  WHAT A WASTE OF TIME AND ENERGY WHEN WE KNOW THE TRUTH - when Jesus Christ has paid the penalty for our sins and has shed His blood; suffered and died so that we can be forgiven, healed and blessed; and that He rose again from the dead and lives forevermore!

There is only ONE Who can give peace to troubled minds, joy to tortured hearts, new life to the lost and forgiveness to the sinful, and I must shout it out loud and clear, His Name is Jesus.  He alone is the Saviour of the world.  The hymn writer stated:  

“What can wash away my sin,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me pure within
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Oh!  Precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.”

God's Word says, "Without shedding of blood is no remission." (Hebrews 9:22); "The blood of Jesus Christ, His Son cleanseth us from all sin." (1 John 1:7).  Many ask, "Why could not Buddha, Mohammed or the Pope be saviours as well as Jesus? The answer is very simple!

The Bible declares, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life”. (John 3:16).  God had only One Son, and His only begotten Son’s name was not Buddha, Mohammed, Shiva or Pope Pius. The name of God’s Son is JESUS.

The angel said to Joseph:  “Thou shalt call His name Jesus:  for He shall save His people from their sins”.   (Matthew 1: 23); Jesus said, “As My Father hath sent Me, even so send I you”. (John 20:21);  “As Thou hast sent Me into this world, even so have I also sent them into the world.” (John 17:18)

Jesus repeatedly stated that He is the Son of God. (John 5:18; 10:30 - 33; Mark 14: 61,62) And don’t forget that Jesus Christ was the only One Who died on the cross for our sins, fulfilling the Old Testament prophesies (Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:16,17; 1 Peter 2:24), and we read  that Jesus was, “declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead”. (Romans 1:4)  Praise the Lord!

 So we see that the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead sets Him apart from all other men of all ages and gives final proof to the fact that He was, is and always will be the Divine, Holy Son of God and the only Saviour of the world.  Jesus Christ stands completely and altogether above everyone else because He was the only one who had power to rise from the dead.

A dead man cannot help you and all of those other people who have been mentioned are dead and gone, but Jesus Christ lives on in power and greatness; resurrected and alive; able to save and deliver all who come unto God by Him. (Hebrews 7:25)

ON WHICH ROAD ARE YOU TRAVELLING?

Now I want to ask you a pointed question:  Who's Side are you on?

On which road are you travelling? As you read these lines I must remind you that you are on one of these roads, either the broad road with the wide gate which will take you to an eternal hell, or the narrow road with the straight gate that brings you to Heaven and Eternity with God.  There is NO middle road and NO neutral ground. You are either on one road or the other.  We are all travellers into Eternity.  Every person living today is on one of these roads.  If you have not given your heart and life to God and accepted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, Lord and Master, then you are a lost soul on the road to hell, and will never have peace, joy or happiness in this life or the one to come, if you continue in the way you are going.

TODAY, AS YOU READ THESE LINES YOU CAN COME TO JESUS AND BY FAITH TURN YOUR LIFE OVER TO GOD; GET OFF THE BROAD ROAD AND GET ON THE ONE THAT LEADS TO GLORY.  “By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

As the Holy Spirit moves upon you, will you not surrender your entire life to the Lord; slip down on your knees in prayer to God; cry out for mercy as the publican did in the Bible, “God, be merciful to me a sinner”; (Luke 18:10-14)  Accept the full and free salvation that God offers you now, and you will enter the straight gate and be on the narrow road of Christian living.  Jesus said, “Come unto Me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”. (Matthew 11:28)  Amen.

HEALING FOR 
SPIRIT, SOUL & BODY
by: Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

The Greek word SOZO means to 'protect, deliver, heal, preserve, save and make well.'  In reality it means the 'Salvation of God'.  Seven hundred years before Jesus' birth in Bethlehem, the Prophet Isaiah declared, "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign, Behold a VIRGIN shall conceive, and bear a Son, and shall call His name Emmanuel." (Isaiah 7:14)

The Angel Gabriel appeared to Joseph saying, "....Fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.  And she shall bring forth a Son, and thou shalt call His name JESUS for He shall save His people from their sins."

"Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet saying, Behold a 'virgin' shall be with child, and shalt bring forth a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, GOD WITH US."  (Matthew 1:20-23)

The name of 'Jesus' in Hebrew is 'Yeshua' which means 'the Salvation of God'.  God's salvation for mankind is 'forgiveness, healing, protection, wellness and deliverance' from the power of the Devil and His evil work.

The name of 'JESUS' means: 'Saviour, the salvation of God; the God who saves, heals, protects, delivers and makes well."

Everywhere our Lord went, he preached the Gospel and confirmed His message by healing the sick and casting out evil spirits from those who were bound: "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil." (1 John 3:8)

The Bible states: "How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and power who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil, for God was with Him." (Acts 10:38)

"...Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by Him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know." (Acts 2:22)

"How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to His own will." (Hebrews 2:3,4)

GOD'S WORD says: "Is any sick among you?  Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall 'SAVE' the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him." (James 5:14,15)

The word SOZO used here means to heal the sick and make them well, is used interchangeably for forgiveness and healing for body or soul in the following Scriptures:  Mark 5:23, Mark 5:34, Mark 6:56, Mark 16:16, Luke 8:36, Luke 17:19, Luke 18:42, Acts 2:21, Acts 14:9, Acts 4:12 and Ephesians 2:8.

THE HOLY RECORD states: "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases." (Psalms 103:2,3); "He was wounded for our transgressions.  He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and with his stripes we are healed." (Isaiah 53:4,5)

"And when the even was come, they brought unto Him (JESUS) 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); "Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness, by Whose stripes ye were healed." (1 Peter 2:24)

The BIBLE says, "He hath sent His Word and healed them and delivered them from their destructions." (Psalms 107:20); "He brought them forth with silver and with gold' and there was not one feeble person among their tribes." (Psalms 105:37)

"I am the Lord, the God of all flesh.  Is there anything to hard for Me?" (Jeremiah 32:27); "And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and He shall bless thy bread and thy water, and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee." (Exodus 23:24,25)

Max Solbrekken personal testimony, personal letter from Pastor Solbrekken, sermons, messages, miracles healing and salvation messages articles.GOD'S HEALING COVENANT WITH ISRAEL

In His great love and concern for His people, Israel, Almighty God made a 'Healing covenant with Moses' on their behalf.  Here it is:

"If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God and wilt do that which is right in His sight, and wilt give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which i have brought upon the Egyptians, for I am the Lord that healeth thee." (Exodus 15:26)

The ten plagues which Jehovah the Covenant God of Israel released upon the Egyptians that finally forced Pharaoh to allow the Hebrew slaves leave their bondage did not adversely affect God's people.

The promise of divine healing and health was reserved for the Hebrews and by extension to all who trust in Christ our Great physician Who fulfilled all the types of the coming Messiah.

"He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes." (Psalms 105:37) "Then they cried unto the lord God in their trouble, and He saveth them out of their distresses.  He sent His Word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions." (Psalms 107:20)

"God is a very present help in time of trouble." (Psalms 46:1); "The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the strength of my life: of whom shall I be afraid?" (Psalms 27:1)

"No good thing will God withhold from them who walk uprightly." (Psalms 84:11); "There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh unto thy dwelling." (Psalms 91:10); "Delight thyself in the Lord, and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart." (Psalms 37:4); "Unto you that fear My name shall the Son of righteousness arise with healing in His wings." (Malachi 4:2)

"No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee shalt thou condemn.  This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of Me sayeth the Lord." (Isaiah 54:17)

Divine Healing is promised for those who fast and pray and seek the Lord: "Is not the fast that I have chosen? To lose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?"

"Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house?  When thou seest the naked, that thou cover him, and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

"Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thy health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee, the glory of the Lord shall be thy rear guard.  Then shalt thou call and the Lord shall answer: thou shall cry, and He shall say, Here am I..." (Isaiah 58:6-8)

Max Solbrekken personal testimony, personal letter from Pastor Solbrekken, sermons, messages, miracles healing and salvation messages articles.THIS IS THE REASON JESUS CAME

"For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the enemy." (1 John 3:8); "The thief (Satan) cometh not but for to steal, kill and destroy.  I am come that you might have life and more abundantly." (John 10:10)

"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); "And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel unto 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 lay their hands on the sick, and they shall recover." (Mark 16:15-20)

Jesus said: "Come unto Me all ye who labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28); "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)

He invites us to fellowship with Him through prayer, praise and meditation.  He said, "Ask and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.  For everyone that asketh receiveth; he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." (Matthew 7:7,8)

Then He shared this great analogy: "And what man is there of you, whom if his son asks bread, will he give him a stone?"  Something useless! "Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?"  Something dangerous!

"If ye then, being evil, know to give god gifts unto your children, HOW MUCH MORE shall your Father in Heaven give good things to them that ask Him? (Matthew 7:9-11)  He stated: "I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.  I will be with thee unto the end of the world." (Matthew 28:20; Hebrews 13:5)

In this PROMISE our precious Lord Jesus used a 'double imperative' to drive home a very important truth.  He actually said: I will never, NO NEVER leave thee.  I will never, NO NEVER forsake thee, I will be with thee until the end of the world.

Of all the promises our Lord gave us, I think this is the most touching.  Jesus was so concerned that we know the truth of His presence and nearness to us at all times!

"The promises of God in Christ Jesus is Yea and Amen." The Bible states: "If God be FOR US, who then can be against us?" (Romans 8:31) "Greater is He that in IN US that he that is in the world." (1 John 4:4)  His promises are 'YES'...and not NO.

"God hath delivered us from the power of DARKNESS, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son, in Whom we have REDEMPTION through HIS BLOOD." (Colossians 1:13, 14)

When Satan's power was defeated in our lives and we were translated into Christ's KINGDOM, Satan's power to harass us was finished.  We can tell him to remove his sickness and disease from us for we are God's PROPERTY.

We have been purchased by His blood: "Ye are BOUGHT WITH A PRICE: therefore glorify God in your BODY, and in your SPIRIT, which are GOD'S." (2 Corinthians 6:20)

My Friend: In the NAME of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and upon the authority of God's Word and by the BLOOD of the everlasting covenant, I command the pain to LEAVE YOUR BODY and the power of Satan to be broken off your entire being.

We can legally say: "SATAN: IT'S OVER!  YOU HAVE LOST and WE HAVE WON through JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD!  Amen.
