EARTHQUAKES 
What does the Bible say?
WILL THERE BE A SUPER QUAKE?
by: Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.   

HISTORICAL RECORDS SHOW EARTHQUAKES BECAME MORE FREQUENT AND MUCH MORE INTENSE DURING THE 20th CENTURY

Earthquakes greatly escalated in frequency, intensity and geographical diversity during the 20th Century.

Jesus Christ gave us a comprehensive, flawless prophecy concerning end-time phenomena including war, famines, pestilence and "earthquakes in divers places" in answer to His disciples query "What shall be the sign of Thy coming and of the end of the world"?

EARTHQUAKES SPEAK FOR GOD, and have done so since the beginning of time; earthquakes are a sign as well as a message from the Almighty to us all! Often, earthquakes are a WAKE-UP CALL for us to repent & get right with God -earthquakes can be a warning of impending judgment and a call to righteousness!

earthquakes, Bible scriptures earthquakes, prophecy on earthquakes super earthquakeTHE FIRST SCIENTIFICALLY MONITORED EARTHQUAKE HAPPENED ON MAY 20, 526 AD

The FIRST scientifically monitored earthquake occurred at Antioch, Syria on May 20, 526 AD and took the lives of 250,000 people. There is no record of its magnitude, but it was certainly great to create so much havoc and death.

Another powerful earthquake (9.0) shook Shensi, China on Jan. 24, 1556 claiming 830,000 lives and on Oct. 11, 1739, Calcutta, India was rocked by a mammoth earthquake leaving 300,000 dead. Again, we have no record of its magnitude.

The Lisbon earthquake shaker claimed 20% of the population on Nov. 11, 1755 registering 8.6 on the Richter Scale and this horrific earthquake was felt many miles away from its epicenter. 60,000 PEOPLE WERE KILLED.

Even though only 503 died in San Francisco's April 18-19, 1906 earthquake, this earthquake registered 8.3 on the Richter Scale and much of the city was destroyed with $500 million in damages!  In 1989 another earthquake, known as the Loma Prieta earthquake, measuring 6.9 on the richter scale hit San Francisco.

On Sept. 1, 1923 an 8.3 magnitude earthquake took 200,000 lives in Yokohama, Japan and another severe earthquake with the magnitude of 8.3 shook NanShan, China on May 22, 1927. On Dec. 26, 1939, a unbelievable earthquake  shook the earth again with great intensity - 7.9 on Richter Scale - in Erzincan, Turkey taking 30,000 lives.

In the 1950's & 1960's, earthquakes were recorded in India, Turkey, Afghanistan, Iran, Morocco, Chile, Yugoslavia and Alaska with intensities as great as 8.7 and as low as 5.8. The Alaska earthquake occurred on March 27, 1964 and took 131 lives,

On May 31, 1970 an earthquake with the magnitude of 7.7 shook Northern Peru and claimed 66,796 lives. The Feb. 4, 1976 quake in Guatemala brought great destruction and death claiming 22,778 lives. It registered 7.5 on the Richter Scale, and on July 26 of that same year, 242,000 people died in the 8.2 horrific killer quake that hit Tangahan, China,

In July 1976, the Tangshan Earthquake also known as the Great Tangshan Earthquake. The Tangshan earthquake is believed to be the largest earthquake of the 20th century by death toll.

earthquakes speak for God. Bible scriptures earthquakes, prophecy on earthquakes super earthquakeSOME RECENT EARTHQUAKES

The Global Volcanism Network of the Smithsonian Institute has provided us with the following information.

Earthquakes in 1993 & 1994 have struck Bolivia (8.2), Columbia (6.8), Indonesia (7.3), California (6.8), Papau New Guinea (7.0), Mexico (7.2), Guam (8.0), Fiji (6.7) and Japan (7.0).

On June 15, 1999 central and southern Mexico was struck by a 6.7 magnitude earthquake which killed a number of people and injured hundreds more.

In August and September, 1999, three powerful earthquakes hit Turkey (7.4), Greece (5.9) and Taiwan (7.6). There was great loss of life and property in both Greece (Sept. 9) and Taiwan (Aug. 17) while the earthquake in Western Turkey was responsible for the deaths of upwards to 60,000 people!

And two strong earthquakes (6.0 and 5.3) hit Greece on May 24 and 26, 2000 but caused little or no damage or injuries because their epicenters were located under the seabed, south of Kalamata and northwest of Athens, respectively.

In India, 10,136 people, according to official estimates, were killed and hundreds of thousands were rendered homeless when a tsunami triggered by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake near the Indonesian island of Sumatra hit the southern peninsular coast on 26 December 2004. The earthquake registered 9.0 in moment magnitude and was the biggest in five decades. This was followed by strong aftershocks, including a 7.1 magnitude quake in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

In January 2010 the most horrific earthquake hit HAITI on such a strong scale and 5-6 strong aftershocks followed in the week after.  HAITI has been devastated by this earthquake and to this date, January 20, 2010 the death toll has reached over 100,000 people with many other people still buried beneath the rubble and thousands of people not accounted for.

earthquakes, Bible scriptures earthquakes, prophecy on earthquakes super earthquakeJAPAN EARTHQUAKE - March 11, 2011
The earthquake that shook the world in 2011 hit just off the Pacific coat of Tohoku, Japan.  This super earthquake is also known as the 2011 Tohoku earthquake or the Great East Japan Earthquake.

The 2011 Japan earthquake was a 9.0 magnitude, that occurred undersea on March 11, 2011.  The Great East Japan earthquake was the most powerful earthquake ever known to fit Japan and was one of the five most powerful earthquakes the world has ever experienced, since official record keeping of earthquakes began in 1900.

The earthquake in Japan was so powerful that it triggered a powerful tsunami that created waves reaching in height as high as 40 metres (approximately 133 feet).

The Japan earthquake was so strong that it shifted the Earth on its axis, in amounts estimated to be between 4 inches and 10 inches.

The Japan earthquake, the Great East Japan earthquake caused approximately 16,000 deaths, with an additional 5800 injuries and approximately 3500 people reported missing.  The 2011 Japan earthquake has been named the most expensive natural disaster in world history.

In the list of signs pointing to Jesus Christ's soon return - given by Jesus Christ Himself - listed is earthquakes occurring in many diverse places!  As you can see by World Almanac statistics which we have included in this article, EARTHQUAKES are increasing in magnitude, intensity & varied geographical locations across our troubled world!

For years, all eyes were on the expected Super Quake which has been predicted to occur along California's fault lines. And earthquake watchers are continuing to keep a close eye on Los Angeles, San Francisco & other cities in California.

The focus of the earthquake watchers, however, has shifted somewhat recently and informed minds are saying that the next 'Big One' or superquake could be in Tokyo or another city in Japan.

On December 28, 1974 an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.5 literally shook Northern Japan - about 95 miles from the nearest city - with very little damage or loss of life due to its isolated location. In 1994, several strong tremors - 6.5 to 8.0 on the Richter Scale - occurred in ocean regions surrounding Japan.

Earthquake watchers (experts) are fearful that a large earthquake may strike Tokyo in the near future. If an earthquake with a magnitude of 8.0 occurs in the Tokyo area, because of the geographical structure of the ground, Tokyo would literally sink, burying millions in the wake of its  power.

On January 17, 1995 an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 struck the Kobe area in Southern Japan with thousands killed & wounded. News sources stated that it was the most powerful earthquake to happen during the past 50 years.

Going back to July 28, 1976, 'History's Most Disastrous Earthquake' struck Tang Shan, China. The grim facts from the Tang Shan earthquake are that 242,000 died and hundreds of thousands were injured. According to an Associated Press report, Jan. 17, 1995: a total of 800,000 fatalities (and possibly as many as 1 million) occurred at the time of the earthquake and as a result of injuries incurred

WHAT KIND OF A MESSAGE ARE THESE EARTHQUAKES SENDING US?

An in-depth study of God's Word confirms that Satan is the "Prince of the Power of the Air", and can engineer catastrophic events to bring about his evil work of death, destruction & confusion - like in the case of Job's children being killed by a 'devil engineered storm'"

Earthquakes however, have been used by the Lord to convey a message to a wicked society that they must repent & turn around.

HERE ARE SOME CLASSIC ACCOUNTS OF GOD SPEAKING TO US THROUGH EARTHQUAKES & WHY:

God manifests His greatness, power & glory in the earthquake. Man is brought low when God shakes the earth. God speaks through the earthquake and His message brings man to his knees.

earthquakes, Bible scriptures earthquakes, prophecy on earthquakes super earthquakeNO. 1 - ON MOUNT SINAI!
"And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly." (Exodus. 19:18)

"See that ye refuse not Him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused Him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from Him that speaketh from heaven." (Hebrews 12:25)

"The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel." (Psalms 68:8)

God revealed His holy presence on Mt. Sinai through thunder, lightning, a cloud and the loud voice of the trumpet that continued growing louder as smoke came from the mount as a great furnace & THE ENTIRE MOUNTAIN QUAKED GREATLY. Man was brought to his knees & convicted of his wickedness as God issued His Ten Commandments. God is holy and we must not forget that.

earthquakes, Bible scriptures earthquakes, prophecy on earthquakes super earthquakeNO. 2 - ON MOUNT CALVARY!
"And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God." (Matthew 27:51,54)

An EARTHQUAKE made the earth tremble & shake at the moment of Jesus' death on Golgotha. Three hours of darkness covered the earth just prior to His death during which time God judged His Son because of our sin. When Jesus cried, "It is finished", salvation was complete and the "fountain was opened" for sin & uncleanness. (Zechariah 13:1)

When Jesus Christ died on Golgotha's hill for our sins, the veil in the temple was rent in twain - from the top to the bottom - thus proclaiming that the death of Jesus had effectively REMOVED THE BARRIER BETWEEN GOD AND MAN. No more priests or high priests mediating between God and sinner would be needed. Jesus Christ Himself became the mediator between God and sinning humanity.

GOD SENT THE EARTHQUAKE as a message to sinning mankind that the "Man on the Middle Cross" was none other than God the Son, Who at that moment was reconciling the world to Himself through His efficacious and substitutionary death.

earthquakes, Bible scriptures earthquakes, prophecy on earthquakes super earthquakeNO. 3 - AT THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST!
"In the end of the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher. And, behold, THERE WAS A GREAT EARTHQUAKE: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and His raiment white as snow: And for fear of Him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men." (Matthew 28:1-4)

When the angel of the Lord appeared at the tomb of Jesus, the guards who were standing watch, fell like dead men! God sent an EARTHQUAKE simultaneously, which made the earth to shake. The guards were overcome by the awesome presence of God's messengers. An angel rolled away the stone and sat upon it.

When the believing women arrived, the angel said, "Fear not for I know you seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead..." (Matthew  28:5-7)

The Bible declares that Jesus Christ was "declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead". (Romans 1:4)

God sent His holy angel with a shattering earthquake to impact the world both physically and spiritually at the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

earthquakes, Bible scriptures earthquakes, prophecy on earthquakes super earthquakeNO. 4 - AT AN APOSTOLIC PRAYER MEETING!
"And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak Thy word, By stretching forth Thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of Thy holy child Jesus."

"And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness." (Acts 4:29-31)

Jesus is the head of the Church and knows how to encourage His people. The disciples who were forbidden to speak or to teach in His Name, "went to their own company" of believers and repeated the threats which the chief priests and elders had made.

As they prayed, the Holy Ghost fell upon them and God sent an EARTHQUAKE to shake the place, demonstrating His all-power!  They were filled with Holy Spirit power, and instead of being intimidated they were "bold as lions"!

earthquakes, Bible scriptures earthquakes, prophecy on earthquakes super earthquakeNO. 5 - FREEING PAUL & SILAS FROM PRISON!
"And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

"And suddenly there was a GREAT EARTHQUAKE, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's hands were loosed."

"And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled." (Acts 16:25-27)

God also knows how to surprise His people. He used an earthquake to free His servants, Paul & Silas!  As these men of God - who had been beaten and chained - began praying & singing praises to God, suddenly He came onto the scene in mighty power.

An EARTHQUAKE shook the prison. The doors were opened and "everyone's hands were loosed".  This great exhibition of God's power resulted in the conversion of the jailer and his family. And Paul & Silas' release from prison.

earthquakes, Bible scriptures earthquakes, prophecy on earthquakes super earthquakeNO. 6 - AS A SIGN OF COMING OF CHRIST AND END OF AGE!
"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places." (Matthew 24:7)
"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows." (Mark 13:8)

"And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven." (Luke 21:11)

God is showing His mighty power in this end time age and will continue to do so in even a more dramatic way than He has in the past.

Jesus declared that EARTHQUAKES would be one of the outstanding signs of His Second Coming and God's judgment upon this wicked world.

Some of the other signs He gave are wars, rumors of wars, famines, pestilences, backsliding and persecution, as well as mighty revivals across the world!  God alone is to be exalted! Man must recognize this and come before His All Powerful Presence in humility, repentance and faith.

earthquakes, Bible scriptures earthquakes, prophecy on earthquakes super earthquakeNO. 7 - OPENING OF SIXTH SEAL!
"And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a GREAT EARTHQUAKE; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood."

"And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places."

"And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;"

"And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" (Revelation 6:12-17)

Wondrous and apocalyptic phenomena will accompany the opening of the sixth seal. The sun will be darkened, the moon will turn to blood, stars will fall from the heavens, the sky will roll away like a scroll.

There will be a GREAT EARTHQUAKE and every mountain & island will be moved out of their places. WHAT A WARNING TO PUNY MANKIND!  God will bear His mighty arm and His great wrath will be poured out upon Christ rejecters and God haters, during the awful 'Great Tribulation' period.

earthquakes, Bible scriptures earthquakes, prophecy on earthquakes super earthquakeNO. 8 - BEFORE THE SEVEN ANGELS SOUND THEIR TRUMPETS
"And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightning's, and an earthquake." (Revelation 8:5)

As the seven angels prepare to sound their trumpets, an angel will take a censer which is filled with fire from off the holy altar of God and cast it upon the earth.

There will be voices, thunderings, lightnings and an EARTHQUAKE! This will happen just prior to God's Final Judgments falling upon the earth. And when the seventh angel sounds his trumpets there will be lightning's, voices, thunderings, great hail & another earthquake.

"And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in His temple the ark of His testament; and there were lightning's, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail." (Revelation 11:19)

earthquakes, Bible scriptures earthquakes, prophecy on earthquakes super earthquakeNO. 9 - WHEN TWO WITNESSES ASCEND!
"And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven." (Revelation 11:13)

There will be a great EARTHQUAKE when the two tribulation witnesses - who shall be slain - will rise from the dead and ascend up to Heaven in a cloud.

This will happen at the close of the 'seven years of Great Tribulation'. One tenth of the city will be destroyed and 7000 men will die. God is the great judge and recompenses just judgment for iniquity.

earthquakes, Bible scriptures earthquakes, prophecy on earthquakes super earthquakeNO. 10 - THE GREAT EARTHQUAKE AT SEVENTH SEAL!
"And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air, and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, IT IS DONE. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightning's; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great."

"And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath."

"And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great." (Revelation 16:17-21)

WHEN THIS GREAT EARTHQUAKE SHAKES THE WORLD, THE CITIES OF THE NATIONS WILL BE UTTERLY DESTROYED, EVERY ISLAND WILL VANISH, THE MOUNTAINS WILL DISAPPEAR AND GREAT HAILSTONES WILL FALL FROM HEAVEN, AS GOD POURS OUT HIS WRATH

Without doubt, the Coming of the Lord draweth nigh and earthquakes are another SIGN pointing to His nearness. This corrupt, immoral, perverted, unjust & evil world will one day receive her just rewards.

Satan, the false prophet and the anti-Christ will all be judged and damned forever along with those who have believed their lies.

The many recent earthquakes, which are growing in intensity and death tolls, are creating panic and fear across the world.

Examples of these disasters are the  (June 6, 2000) magnitude 7.9 quake that rattled Sumatra, Indonesia, leaving dozens dead and thousands homeless, the Haiti earthquake in January 2010, that devastated Haiti and killed over 100,000 people, and most recently the horrific Japan earthquake of March 11, 2011 that is recorded as one of the 5 most powerful earthquakes ever recorded.

As the world is rocked again and again with these horrible disasters, one can hardly deny that God's Word is flawless and prophecy is being fulfilled to the letter.

WITHOUT DOUBT, JESUS IS COMING SOON

It behooves us all to make doubly sure that we have our "wedding garments on" and that we are ready for the "Marriage Supper of the Lamb"!  You may ask as did the Philippian  jailer, "What must I do to be saved?"

My answer is their answer: "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ (as your personal Savior) and thou shall be saved".  (Acts 16:31).  May the Lord Bless you, my Friend !

TO RECEIVING BLESSINGS
by: Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.   

"Give, and it shall be given unto  you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.  For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again." (Luke 6:38)

Blessings, receiving blessings, secret to receiving blessings, Giving is the secret to receiving blessings, Bible article scriptures on giving and receiving,?how to receive blessingsGIVE AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU

Show me a giving, sharing person, and I'll show you a happy person!  On the other hand, a stingy individual is usually taken up with himself and others of "the same ilk", and soon tires of both himself and them!

Those kind of people are most often selfish, grabby and critical of others.  They are usually insecure because they trust only in themselves, rather than having faith in God and their fellowmen!  After a time of self adulation, the "self-made man" loses faith in his own ability and the system that "created him"! Consequently, such a person is most unhappy, depressed and a candidate for ulcers

Some of the happiest people I have met, are dedicated seniors who live only for their families, doting on the "little ones", counseling their children or entertaining guests who "drop by".

What makes this country function is not the bloated bureaucrat or politician, but the dedicated moms and dads who rise early in the morning to help their kids deliver newspapers and who spend countless hours driving them to music lessons, hockey or baseball practice and Sunday School.

Let's not forget the thousands of community workers who continually give their time, money and effort in working to help the under-privileged, and be a blessing to their fellowman.

I have met a lot of these special people - during four decades of Christian Ministry - many of which are unheralded and unsung.  And without doubt, these are the real backbone of Canada's homes, churches and communities.

I'm referring to people like Katie Kutryk, a wonderful lady who attended our church for many years.  Katie Kutryk passed away a number of years ago at 88 years of age.  This was a woman who never missed a beat for Jesus, the Church or her family.

Katie was "always there" for us all; an example extra-ordinaire, of Christian loving, giving and sharing the gospel of Christ in her daily living.  She utilized every opportunity to testify, to be a blessing by giving to missions and supporting her Church and pastor!  We all miss her dearly.

My son Ken Solbrekken, Director of Pastoral Counseling for the Alberta District of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada, put Katie's life in perspective by sharing the following at her funeral:

"Several  years ago, a number of Edmonton Churches united for a gospel outreach.  The weather turned bitterly cold and attendance was poor.  As I was hurrying towards the auditorium, a lone figure stepped off the bus and headed against the wind, in the same direction.

"It was Katie Kutryk.  While others had stayed home to enjoy their fireplaces, Katie had come to serve!"

Jesus said, ""..Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you". (Matthew 5:44)

It is difficult to be tolerant and caring to those who misunderstand or abuse us, but the Holy Spirit gives the necessary help to do so.  To be tolerant however, does not mean that you must compromise your principles.

Let us all seek to be servers and givers, rather than always demanding others to serve us.  And remember that true charity or 'agape' love goes the "second mile".

The Bible says, "A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches..." (Proverbs 22:1)  In order to respect others, their property and their rights, we must first respect ourselves and our own property.

Building strong families, requires husbands and wives to show love, affection and trust toward one another, in public and private! Something that is sadly lacking in Canada today, is the old fashioned "Protestant work ethic" that built this country.

It is important for employees to be loyal to their employers, by putting in a good day's work, and those who pay the salaries must be fair to their employees! Our government leaders and elected officials need our prayers and support, as do our pastors and gospel ministers who labour among us for the common good of all.

In my opinion, if all Christians in Canada would begin to practice the gospel of Christ, we would not only solve our own problems but those of other nations as well.


One True God, Don't be Deceived - There is Only One True God, Thou shalt have no other gods before me, Beware of false religions with false, man made GodsBeware of False Gods 
THERE IS ONLY
'ONE TRUE GOD'
by: Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.   

Don't be Deceived - There is Only One True God, Thou shalt have no other gods before me, False Religions, Beware of false religions - THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME

"Thou shalt have NO other gods before Me. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain." (Exodus 20:3,4-7)

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

The Bible says, "Casting all your care (anxieties, fears, diseases) upon Him (Jesus Christ) for He cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7) 

History is marred by people facing tragedy, violence and suffering.  It has been marked by thousand of years of fear, greed, hatred and war between people and countries.  We have been beset by pestilences, plagues and epidemics.  People have been affected by sickness, death and sorrow.  People are suffering both mentally and physically.

THE HUMAN RACE FACES INTOLERANCE, RACISM, PERSECUTION

The human race is far from immune to religious intolerance, radical strife, ethnic superiority and tribal brutality, as witnessed by the 1990's tribal massacres in Rwanda and Burundi.  And in Sudan,  where during the last fifteen years nearly 2 million black Christians have been ethnically cleansed from the land through persecution, execution, forced conversion to Islam and a life of slavery, by ruthless and evil government gunmen.

There is world wide persecution againsts ChristiansPERSECUTION AGAINST CHRISTIANS BY MUSLIMS

Unfortunately, the story doesn't end there; it continues. Authentic reports reveal on-going persecution against Christians by Muslims in Indonesia, and in Communist China where multitudes have been brutalized, imprisoned and martyred for their faith in Jesus Christ. The suffering continues with no end in sight.

That we live in painfully, dangerous world is an understatement.  In light of what has happened on September 11, 2001, when the world saw the devil's face in the demon inspired work of 19 Islamic suicide hijackers and their fanatical leaders and supporters around the world. The suffering and pain this horror caused is monumental.  This example of people hating people, races hating races, religions hating religions. The pain that people are suffering is deep and emotional and there seems to be no compassion in this cold, hard world.

The curse that came upon the world through the disobedience of Adam and Eve, our first parents, has brought us to this fearful moment in history.  People have turned to violence, murder and mayhem which causes pain and suffering on every level.  

In trying to deal with the pain and suffering, people have become addicted to gambling, drug addiction and alcohol abuse as they are searching for happiness, and not finding it.  Pornography, prostitution and homosexuality are gaining respectability among people.  The side effects of all these are painful scenes such as broken homes, child poverty, abortion and people committing suicide world wide. People are suffering emotional pain, suffering hurt and searching for something to heal their suffering.

There is Only One True God, Thou shalt have no other gods before me, Beware of false religions with false, man made GodsTHE BLESSED HOLY SPIRIT IS IGNORED BY MANY CLERGYMEN & PEOPLE IN GENERAL

The absence of the Holy Spirit in the lives of many preachers has turned churches into spiritual mausoleums.  I believe that many of the societal ills that are destroying our nation, is a direct result of the lack of clear cut Bible preaching in our churches.

Without spiritual and moral direction, how can we expect young people to know right from wrong?  What an awful indictment against the Church in this end time hour.

No wonder there is greed, hatred and violence among people,  where there is compromise and backsliding in our Bible Colleges, Seminaries and Churches.  A congregation of people usually rises no higher than its spiritual leader's preaching, teaching and example.  We can blame governments, judges, school boards, educators, media and Hollywood.  I contend that it begins in the Church and spreads into the home, school and society at large.

WHAT HAS BEEN THE OUTCOME of such negligence?  We have wide spreading back sliding in the 'pulpit and pews', resulting in a lack of reverence for God, distrust of the Holy Bible and disinterest in spreading the Word of God and missionary work in general.

This abandonment of Holy Scripture is the beginning.  The real mission of the Church has changed.  The Churches have lost the desire for winning souls for Christ.  The Church has become devastated, totally ignoring the plight of hurting men and women, people who are without God in this world.

We have sown to the wind and are now reaping the world-wind! Backslidden preachers have contributed - by failing to present the Word of God to their people that are their church members.   The moral decline in our homes, schools, courts, governments and society at large is obviously a sign. The negative spiritual climate of our nation is largely due to such silence on vital moral issues and by fear of preaching the truth lest someone is offended! How utterly reprehensible such actions are to God, Who is ABSOLUTE TRUTH.

How despicable, unacceptable and cowardly we have become.  Allowing the Christian Church to be hijacked by the leadership of agnostic seminary professors and pervert theologians, "who hold down the truth in unrighteousness: and who call evil good." (Romans 1:18, Isaiah 5:20)

RENEGADE ARCHANGEL: MASTERMIND BEHIND ATTACKS

Satan is a liar, murderer and destroyer! Jesus called Satan by three names: Satan (hebrew)- the adversary, enemy; devil (greek) - liar, false accuser and traducer; Beelzebub - god of flies, filth! Jesus said: "The thief (Satan) cometh not but for to steal, kill and destroy. I am come that ye might have life and have it more abundantly." (John 10: 10)

The Bible says: "For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost." (Luke 19:10) "Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matt. 28:11,12) "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father but by Me." (John 14:6); "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil." (1 John 3:8)

700 years before our Lord's first advent, God's prophet stated: "Surely He hath borne our grief's, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten God, and afflicted.  But 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.  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid upon Him the iniquity of us all." (Isaiah 53:4-6)

THERE IS HEALING for the total person! There is healing for hurting people through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ on Golgotha! A gospel song says: "Jesus paid it all - All to Him I owe - Sin had left a crimson stain - He washed it white as snow;

Not only did Jesus destroy the works of the devil through His efficacious and vicarious death on the cross, He destroyed Satan Himself.  The enemy no longer has any power over those who trust completely and totally in the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ: "...that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage." (Hebrew 2:14-15)

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? This is concrete proof of Satan's demise, and Jesus Christ's total and absolute victory over him for time and eternity! It means that Jesus' death destroyed the devil, so that we could be delivered! Simply put: 'Christ's Victory, Satan's Defeat and Our Liberty!'

The Bible says that Jesus, "made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:  And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross."

"Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2:5-11)

"Giving thanks unto the Father...Who 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, even the forgiveness of sins." (Colossians 1:12-14); "And having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it." (Colossians 2:15)

One True God, Don't be Deceived - There is Only One True God, Thou shalt have no other gods before me, Beware of false religions with false, man made GodsCHRIST PURCHASED OUR SALVATION WHEN HE SHED HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD

The Bible states: "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth upon a cross." (Galatians 3:13) "And He (Jesus Christ) is the head of the Church: Who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead (the first to die and be raised, never to die again. Lazarus was raised but had to die again); that in all things He might have the preeminence."

"And, having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself; by Him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven." (Colossians 1:18-20)

"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.  For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.  He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." (John 3:16-18)

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation: but is passed from death unto life." (John 5:24) "And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." (1 John 5:11-13)

St. Paul declares: "Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By Whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.  For it, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life." (Romans 5:1, 6-10)

WHAT MUST PEOPLE DO TO BE HEALED?  When Daniel was called to interpret the spiritual dream that God gave Nebuchadnezzar, he specifically warned the king of coming judgment if he would not change his ways! What would he have to do? "Break off thy sins by being righteous, and thine iniquities by showing mercy to the poor." What could have happened had he obeyed?  God would have been merciful to him: "If it may be a lengthening of thy tranquility."

Did the arrogant Nebuchadnezzar show remorse, repent or turn from his wicked ways? No, he did not! What was the outcome? The hammer of God's judgment fell:

"The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, until his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws. And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured Him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom is from generation to generation." (Daniel 4:33-37)

WHAT CAN PEOPLE  LEARN FROM THIS? God is in control, He hates pride in people and blesses people who humble themselves and are genuinely remorseful for their sin! It speaks of God's great mercy to people who honestly desire to live a decent, God-fearing life and care for the needy and less fortunate. It also reveals why nations in general and people in particular who have left God out of their lives, get into deep trouble.

AUGUST STRINDBERG, the celebrated Swedish author, wrote these words shortly before his death: "Clearly said - I ascribe all my misfortunes to this one fact, that I have been godless! An individual that has broken contact with God cannot receive any blessings. All this talk about 'being your own man and making your own happiness' is chaff.

"If the Lord does not build the house, they labour in vain who build it. That is the whole truth! That misfortune can also strike a person of faith, we know. But the outcome is not the same. These misfortunes seem only like trials that pass over and leave peace in their wake.

"A curse rests on everything that an ungodly person puts his hand to. If money comes his way, it will disappear like it came. Nothing remains in the life of the ungodly!"

THE MERCY OF GOD ALWAYS REACHES OUT TO PEOPLE WHO ARE SINNERS AND BACKSLIDERS

What do we as a people need to do? "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it." (Isaiah 1:16-20)

Many people are not convicted of their sinful actions, because they do not know God's hatred for sin. Godly sorrow for sin - which brings genuine repentance and faith to receive His blessing - comes from the Word of God and the Holy Spirit. If the rank and file of our nation understood how our sinfulness grieves the Heavenly Father, people would seek by His grace to serve Him to the utmost of our ability

HERE IS HIS WORD: 'Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? But My people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit. Be ye astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be ye horribly afraid, be ye very desolate, saith the Lord. For My people have committed two EVILS; they have forsaken Me the fountain of living waters and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.' (Jeremiah 2:11-13)

God condemns the rebellious actions of the ancient people of Israel whom He called His chosen people.  He asks the universe to witness this astonishing event - His people turning from Him, the 'Fountain of Living Waters' to trust in man-made 'broken cisterns that can hold no water'.

It is inconceivable that clear thinking, intelligent people would forsake the God of the universe, the creator of life and all things visible and invisible, and turn to imaginary gods and goddesses - both medieval and today's New Age! The devil knows how to make fools out of people since he is the biggest fool of all.  

The devil has orchestrated and failed in his own rebellion against the Almighty: "For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High."  (Isaiah 14:13,14)

One True God, Don't be Deceived - There is Only One True God, Thou shalt have no other gods before me, Beware of false religions with false, man made GodsSATAN IS BEHIND FALSE RELIGIONS, MAN MADE GODS AND PROPHETS

Satan has engineered all false religions, and demonically deluded false prophets, who have claimed to speak in the name of The Almighty from the very beginning of time.

In his powerful book 'The Knowledge of the Holy',  A.W. Tozer writes: "Among the sins to which the human heart is prone, hardly any is more hateful to God than idolatry, for idolatry is at bottom a libel on His character. The idolatrous heart assumes that God is other than He is - in itself a monstrous sin - and substitutes for the true God one made after its own likeness. Always this God will conform to the image of the one who created it and will be base or pure, cruel or kind according to the moral state of the mind from which it emerges.

"A god begotten in the shadows of a fallen heart will quite naturally be no true likeness of the true God.  Surely this must be serious affront to the most High God before Whom cherubim and seraphim continually do cry, Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Sabaoth."

Allah, Shiva, Krishna, Buddha, Odin, Thor, Zeus, Artemis (Diana), Gaia and a host of other gods and goddesses are only imitations of the One True Almighty and Eternal Lord God Jehovah and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ

ASK YOURSELF:  How could the Eternal God command Muslims to kill Jews and Christians, when He repeatedly states that He is the 'God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob', the Jews are His chosen people and that so long as this universe exists, He will protect them and keep covenant with them? (Exodus 3:6,14; Jeremiah 31-37; 33:20-26)

The crucified and risen Lord Jesus specifically told Saul of Tarsus that when he was persecuting, imprisoning and killing Christians, he was persecuting God: "And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou Me? And he said, Who art Thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest." (Acts 9:5)

In the Quran (sura 5:60) we read that Allah has transformed Jews and Christians into 'apes and swine', who worship 'evil'. As recently as 2002, the leading Muslim imam in Baghdad, Iraq parroted Allah when he affirmed: "Jews and Americans are apes and swine."

In the 1930s, Haj Amin el Husseini was invited by his hero, Adolf Hitler, to visit Berlin. While speaking on Berlin radio, Yasser Arafat's Egyptian uncle, the Muslim Grand Mufti of Jerusalem stated: "Kill the Jews - kill them with your teeth - this is well pleasing to Allah!"

THE QURAN SAYS: "Jews are the enemies of Allah, Muhammed and the angels, and Muslims must kill them wherever they find them." (sura 4:101 and sura 4: 91); "When the month with respect (Ramadan) is over, you must persecute, imprison and kill non-Muslims wherever you find them." (Al Toba 5: 9); "And continue your battle against non-Muslims until they accept Islam. And if they do not seek Allah and will not leave the country, imprison them and kill them, wherever you find them." (Al. Nofal 8: 39)

"All who fight against Allah or convert to other religions shall be executed, crucified or have their hands and feet hacked off on opposite sides." (sura 5334); "Regarding unbelievers (non-Muslims), they are determined enemies of Muslims. Muslims shall arrest them, imprison them and ambush them everywhere." (sura 9: 5); "You shall grab them and kill them in every place where you find them." (sura 4: 90)

"Allah will create terror in the hearts of unbelievers. Hack off their heads and cut off their finger tips." (sura 8: 12); "Fight those who do not believe in Allah, who do not acknowledge the Religion of Truth, even if they are from the people of the Book "Jews and Christians" (sura 9: 29). "Muslims shall fight against unbelievers who live among them." (sura 9: 123)

In 2002 A.D. Islamic leaders said: "Israel is little Satan, Europe is Satan and America is the great Satan." WHY? They are quoting their holy book, the Quran: 'Jews and Christians can be likened to Satan.' (sura 59: 11)

In a piece titled 'God and Allah Aren't the Same', Marvin Olasky wrote: "Does the god of Islamic imagination act toward man as God described in the Bible does? Read the Quran: If you know anything about the civilization of 7th century west Asia, you won't find many surprises. The Quran has Allah promising gifts to his warriors, just like conquerors of old dispensed boons to theirs.

"Suras 44,52,55,56,69, 78 and others include descriptions of how good Muslims after death will have 'a life of pleasure' complete with meat, bananas and large-eyed, beautiful young women."

One True God, Don't be Deceived - There is Only One True God, Thou shalt have no other gods before me, Beware of false religions with false, man made GodsDO NOT BE DECEIVED - THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE GOD

PEOPLE - DON'T FORGET THIS TRUTH: The Eternal God is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob! He is Elohim, Jehovah, Shaddai, Adon, Adonai, Adonim, El, El Elyon, Jah, Eloah, Jehovah Jirah, Jehovah Rapha, Jehovah Raah, Jehovah Nissi, Jehovah Shammah, Jehovah Shalom, Jehovah Tsidkenu, Jehovah Mekaddishkem and Jehovah Zeboath.

After his conversion, Saul changed his name to Paul. His words to the Galatians relate perfectly to the followers of Joseph Smith today: "I marvel that ye are so soon removed from Him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel. Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

"But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you that ye received, let him be accused." (Galatians 1: 8,9)

One True God, Don't be Deceived - There is Only One True God, Thou shalt have no other gods before me, Beware of false religions with false, man made GodsPEOPLE MUST NOT WHITEWASH GOD'S WORD

God exposed the two evils His people had committed. He did not whitewash these sins. He called them two evils! Therefore, people must not minimize them either! We must expose them, as I am doing here.

Here is an important question: "If the religion, guru or god one follows is unimportant, WHY would the Living God be so specific about His name in the Decalogue? Let's examine these awesome words:

"Thou shalt have NO other gods before Me. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain." (Exodus 20:3,4-7)

WHO IS THE GOD referred to here? We'll let Him answer: "And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage." (Exodus 20:1,2)

Did Buddha, Shiva, Krishna, Odin, Thor, Zeus, Artemis (Diana) or Gaia bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt? No, they did not! Did Allah bring the children of Israel out of the land of bondage? A thousand times NO!  Allah is a relative new comer among the god-pack! In the 7th Century, Muhammad banned the worship of all tribal gods and goddesses, except the most powerful, Al-ilah.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN to take the name of the Lord in vain? For years, pastors taught people that it is to curse or swear using the Lord's name. It means more than that, however. Calling the Creator and Saviour of the world by another name than His own, is taking the Name of the LORD in vain.

Can you imagine how the Eternal God feels when people call Him by spurious names like Gaia, Allah, Krishna or Buddha? That is a great affront to the Almighty, Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent God of all flesh.

One True God, Don't be Deceived - There is Only One True God, Thou shalt have no other gods before me, Beware of false religions with false, man made GodsTHE BLUE PRINT TO REVIVAL IS FOR PEOPLE TO COME BACK TO FEARING THE LORD, THE ONE TRUE GOD

What we need is an old-fashioned revival of righteousness, holiness and the fear of the Lord, in order to turn people to the truth! How do we do that? The Bible says: "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; and the knowledge of the Holy is understanding." (Proverbs. 8:10)  The key here is 'The fear of the Lord'.

For many years, preachers of the Gospel have labeled 2 Chronicles 7:14 the 'Blueprint For Revival': "If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

1. HUMBLE OURSELVES - The Bible says: "For thus saith the High and Holy One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones." (Isaiah 57:15)

"But He giveth more grace. Wherefore He saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble: "and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time." (James 4:6; 1 Pet. 5:5,6)

The Bible says: "The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the forward mouth, do I hate. Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall." (Proverbs. 8:13; 16:18)

2. PRAY - Jesus taught His disciples to pray (Luke 11: 1- 4). He admonished them to pray to our Heavenly Father in His name and promised that He would answer: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, He will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in My name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full." (John 16: 23,24)

Praying is a prerequisite to receiving God's blessing: "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?" (Luke 11:13)

Historically, revivals of great magnitude come only through people seeking God in fasting and prayer: "And when they had heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, Thou art God, which hath made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in then is:

"And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto Thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak Thy Word, by stretching forth Thine hand to heal: and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of Thy Holy Child Jesus. And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the Word of God with boldness." (Acts 5: 29-31)

Jesus admonished: "men ought always to pray, and not to faint. And shall not God avenge His own elect, which cry day and night unto Him, though He bear long with them." (Luke 18:1,7); "Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." (Mark. 11:24)

St. Paul declared: "Pray without ceasing." (1 Thessalonians 5:17); "I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting." (1 Timthy 2:8); "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit Himself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered." (Romans 8:26)

The Bible 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.

"Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit." (James 5: 14-18)

3. SEEK GOD'S FACE - In his powerful 'Mars Hill message on the 'Unknown God', St. Paul stated: "That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after Him, and find Him, though He be not far from every one of us: For in Him we live, and move and have our being." (Acts 17: 27,28)

The Holy Record says: "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that seekest after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. There is no fear of God before their eyes." (Romans 3:10-12,18)

The Almighty states: "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon Me, and ye shall go and pray unto Me, and I will turn hearken unto you. And ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when ye shall search for Me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the Lord." (Jeremiah 29: 11-14)

The prophet Daniel stated: "And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes: And I prayed unto the Lord my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love Him, and to them that keep His commandments; We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from Thy precepts and from Thy judgments:

"Neither have we hearkened to Thy servants, the prophets, which spake in Thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land." (Daniel 3:1-6) WHAT WAS THE OUTCOME? God dispatched the angel Gabriel with the answer to the prophet's request.

The Scriptures say: "For thus saith the Lord unto the house of Israel, seek ye Me, and ye shall live. Seek good, and not evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the Lord God will be gracious." (Amos 5:4, 14,15)

Millions of people are being deceived by the 'New Age Movement', which is in fact, old-time occultism! Here is God's Word: "And when they say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits (witches, clairvoyants, fortune tellers), and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter (spiritualist mediums): should not a people SEEK unto their God? (Isaiah 8:19,20)

Jesus said: "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." (Matthew 6:33)

4. PEOPLE MUST TURN FROM OUR WICKED WAYS - The Bible says: "Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked."  (Isaiah 57: 6,7)

WHY DO PEOPLE NEED TO REPENT? The Bible says: "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" (Jeremiah 17: 9); "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man." (Mark. 7: 23) St. Paul preached that people "should repent and turn to God, and do the works meet for repentance.." (Acts 26: 20)

John the Baptist and our Lord preached repentance and faith. (Matthew 3: 1-3; Luke 13: 3)  Jesus taught His disciples to do the same: "And they went out, and preached that men should repent." (Mark. 6: 12)

St. Peter emphasized: "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." (Acts 2: 38); "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord." (Acts 3: 19)

The Bible says: "And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent: Because He hath appointed a day, in the which He will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom He hath ordained; whereof He hath given assurance unto all men, in that He hath raised Him from the dead." (Acts 17: 30,31)

Every one should consider the great love of God that is reaching out to this sin-sick world. How could anyone turn away from such love and mercy? We were all lost in sin and rebellion - sinners by birth, nature and choice! And then, the Creator became one of us in order to save us from our sins. The Bible calls that grace - unmerited favour. (Ephesians 2: 8,9).

God-s goodness leads to repentance (godly sorrow for sin) that brings forgiveness and real change in lives! (Romans. 2: 4; 2 Corinthians 7: 10)

BY GRACE ALONE - THROUGH FAITH ALONE - IN CHRIST ALONE

Here is a true story that pin-points the truth of the incarnation - God the Son, True God from eternity and True Man - wrapped Himself in human flesh by being born of a virgin, so that He could suffer, bleed and die in our place, as our substitute and thereby meet the demands of Divine Justice.

The Bible says: "Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace. Now it was not written for his sake (Abraham) alone, that it was imputed to him; But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on Him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification." (Romans 4: 16-25) "For 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)

THE ATHEIST & THE GOOSE STORY

"There was once a man who didn't believe in God, and he didn't hesitate to let others know how he felt about religion and religious holidays, like Christmas. His wife, however, did believe, and she raised her children to also have faith in God and Jesus, despite his disparaging comments. One snowy Christmas Eve, his wife was taking their children to a Christmas Eve service in the farm community in which they lived. She asked him to come, but he refused.

"That story is nonsense!" he said. "Why would God lower Himself to come to Earth as a man? That's ridiculous!".  So she and the children left, and he stayed home. A while later, the winds grew stronger and the snow turned into a blizzard. As the man looked out the window, all he saw was a blinding snowstorm. He sat down to relax before the fire for the evening.

Then, he heard a loud thump. Something had hit the window. Then, another thump! He looked out, but couldn't see more than a few feet. When the snow let up a little, he ventured outside to see what could have been beating on his window. In the field near his house he saw a flock of wild geese. Apparently, they had been flying south for the winter when they got caught in the snowstorm and couldn't go on. They were lost and stranded on his farm, with no food or shelter. They just flapped their wings and flew around the field in low circles, blindly and aimlessly. A couple of them had flown into his window, it seemed.

The man felt sorry for the geese and wanted to help them. The barn would be a great place for them to stay, he thought. It's warm and safe; surely they could spend the night and wait out the storm. So he walked over to the barn and opened the doors wide, then watched and waited, hoping they would notice the open door and go inside. But the geese just fluttered around aimlessly or didn't seem to notice the barn or realize what it could mean for them. The man tried to get their attention, but that just seemed to scare them and they moved further away. He went into the house and came with some bread, broke it up, and made a breadcrumb trail leading to the barn. They still didn't catch on. Now he was getting frustrated. He got behind them and tried to shoo them toward the barn. Nothing he did could get them to go into the barn where they would be warm and safe.

"Why don't they follow me?" he exclaimed. "Can't they see this is the only place where they can survive the storm?" He thought for a moment and realized that they just wouldn't follow a human. "If only I were a goose, then I could save them," he said out loud. Then he had an idea. He went into the barn, got one of his own geese, and carried it in his arms as he circled around behind the flock of wild geese. He then released it. His goose flew through the flock and straight into the barn - and one by one the other geese followed it into safety. He stood silently for a moment as the words he had spoken a few minutes earlier replayed in his mind: "If only I were a goose, I could save them!" Then he thought about what he had said to his wife earlier: "Why would God want to become like us? That's ridiculous!"

Suddenly, it all made sense. That is what God had done. We were like the geese - blind, lost, perishing. God had His Son become like us so He could show us the way and save us. That was the meaning of Christmas, he realized.  As the winds and blinding snow died down, his soul became quiet and pondered this wonderful thought. Suddenly, he understood what Christmas was all about, why Christ had come. Years of doubt and disbelief vanished like the passing storm. He fell to his knees in the snow, and prayed his first prayer: "Thank You, God, for coming in human form to get me out of the storm!"          - author unknown

 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!  Jesus came to this earth "to seek and save that which was lost." (Luke 19:10)

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)

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)

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.


ARE YOU READY 
TO MEET GOD?

by: Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

CAN I ASK YOU A QUESTION?  ARE YOU READY TO MEET GOD?

The most important question I could ask you and the most important decision of your entire lifetime revolves around the spiritual welfare of your soul and its eternal destiny. 

There are preachers today who have soft-soaped the Gospel and watered down God's word to please their listeners in order to keep their parishioners coming to church. 

They are afraid that if they preach the truth, as it is written, people will not like it and their offering plates will not bring in too much money. 

The Bible warns that this would be the case in the end time, of which we are now living.  "But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived." (2 Timothy 3:13)

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." (2 Timothy 4:3,4)

The Apostle Paul calls such preachers 'food preachers' or 'belly preachers'.  These men only preach to earn a living and not to win men and women to Jesus Christ.

"For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple." ( Romans 16:18 )  "Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things." ( Philippians 3:19 )

I'm going to be absolutely honest with you and tell you the complete truth as found in God's Word concerning your soul, death, judgment, heaven, hell and eternity and the gift of salvation. Then I will also show you how you can be saved and forgiven by the precious blood of Jesus Christ.

1 - YOUR SOUL WILL NEVER DIE

Your soul is eternal and will live on even after your body dies. (Genesis 2:7)

2 - ONE APPOINTMENT YOU CAN'T CANCEL OR POSTPONE

"It is appointed unto man once to die but after this the judgment." (Hebrews 9:27)

3 - YOU CAN'T FOOL GOD

"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." (Galatians 6:7) "Be sure your sin will find you out." (Numbers 32:23)

4 - YOU'LL PAY FOR YOUR SINS IF YOU DON'T REPENT OF THEM

"The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23) 

"The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God." (Psalms 9:17) 

"When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all the nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divided his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal." (Matthew 25:31-34, 41, 46)

5 - ALL HAVE SINNED

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23) "And we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all." (Isaiah 53:6) "There is none righteous, no, not one." (Romans 3:10)

6 - JESUS DIED TO SAVE SINNERS

Jesus said, "For I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance", (Matthew 9:13) and "For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost." (Matthew 18:11)

"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 53:5)

"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. 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)

7 - YOU MUST REPENT OF YOUR SINS

"He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy." (Proverbs 28:13) "Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon." (Isaiah 55:7) "Except ye repent ye shall all likewise perish." (Luke 13:5)

8 - YOU MUST BELIEVE THE GOSPEL

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:9-10)

9 - ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOUR BY FAITH

"For 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) "Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28) "Come now, and let us reason together saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." (Isaiah 1:18) "Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out." (John 6:37)

10 - HE WILL GIVE YOU THE POWER YOU NEED

"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) "Ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." (Acts 1:8)

HOW CAN I BE SAVED?

Many are asking this question today. They are wanting to know how to "make things right with Almighty God." They realize somewhere along the way, they have lost sight of God - they have lost contact with the Eternal One - the Great Creator, God, who loved the world so much that He sent His Son to die for lost humanity. 

Multitudes today are groping in darkness - looking for a ray of light to point them to the Heavenly way - but alas, they search in vain, they stumble and fall in the shadows of sin, worry, fear, anxiety, loneliness, heartbreak, sickness and confusion. 

Many people have tried to live a better life, turn over a new leaf, rehabilitate themselves, only to find that their strength in the time of testing and temptation has failed and they are back where they started. So now, not only are they defeated, but they are also bewildered, perplexed and tormented, not knowing which way to turn.

Dear Reader, perhaps you are one of these poor unfortunate souls. THEN LISTEN CAREFULLY, for I have good news for you. There is still balm in Gilead for your sin sick soul. There is still deliverance for the bound, victory for the defeated and peace for the troubled. There is still healing for the sick and salvation for the lost.

THERE IS STILL HOPE - LOOK TO JESUS

THERE IS STILL HOPE FOR YOU. There is life for you. There is still forgiveness and happiness for you. LOOK TO JESUS, the author and finisher of your faith, (Hebrews 12:3). 

LOOK TO JESUS, the mighty conqueror (Revelation 1:17-18). 

LOOK TO JESUS, the Saviour of the World (Luke 2:11). 

Don't look at your sinful condition, LOOK TO JESUS; don't look at your hopelessness, frustration and bewilderment, LOOK TO JESUS

Don't look at your sickness, grief and loneliness, LOOK TO JESUS. 

Don't look at your friends of other Christians who have failed, but LOOK TO JESUS who never fails.

The Bible says in Isaiah 45:22, "Look unto me and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God and there is NONE else."

There is only one way to be saved and that is through Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God.

Jesus said in (John 14:6), "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man cometh unto the Father but by me." Jesus said in (John 10:9), "I am the Door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be SAVED, and shall go in and out and find pasture." 

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO GO - that way is JESUS. There is only one door to God, and that door is Jesus. There is no other.

Mohammed, Buddha and the Roman Pope, a church organization - none of these will open the doors to the Kingdom of Heaven, but Jesus Christ, the one who came from heaven, who died on the Cross, rose again from the dead - He is able to forgive you, save you and bring you into the Kingdom of God. GLORY TO HIS NAME FOREVER.

The Apostle Peter said in (Acts 4:12) concerning Jesus Christ, "Neither is there Salvation in any other, for there is none other name under Heaven, given among men whereby we must be SAVED." 

There you have it. the only name that can bring salvation, blessing and deliverance is the Mighty Name of Jesus. The Angel said unto Joseph (Matthew 1:21), "Ye shall call His Name Jesus, for He shall SAVE His people from their sins." In (Romans 10:13) we read, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be SAVED."

The Philippian jailer asked the same question many today are asking and he got an answer he was converted, his life was changed. He met the master, Jesus. You can do the same. There in the prison house he cried out (Acts 16:30), "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" Paul answered, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be Saved." He believed on Jesus Christ and was Saved. you can do the same.

But you ask - how can I believe? What must I do to believe in Jesus Christ? Where do I start? I am glad you asked these questions, because I have the answer for you from God's word - Here is what you must do to be saved.

1 - REPENT OF YOUR SINS - To be saved you must repent of your sins and see yourself as you really are - You must realize you are lost and undone, without hope. You must see God's Holiness and realize that you have sinned against the Almighty. You must be sorry for your sins, you must hate your sins and be willing to forsake them (Matthew 4:17) your sins have condemned you (John 3:18) your sins have separated you from God (Isaiah 59:2). The Bible says (Romans 3:23), "For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God." Also in (Isaiah 53:6) the word of God says, "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all."

GOD HATES YOUR SINS - but God loves you. God wants to rescue you out of your sins. You must be willing to give yourself completely over to God and turn your back on all unrighteousness.

2 - YOU MUST CONFESS YOU SINS TO GOD - (1 John 1:9) "If we confess our sins (to God), He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." You must tell God you are a sinner and that you cannot save yourself. You must confess to God that no one else can save you except Jesus Christ. You must ask God to have mercy on you (Luke 18:13) and to forgive you. Then you must confess to God that you believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that Jesus Christ died on the Cross of Calvary for your sins, that He rose again from the dead and that He is able to save you (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) (Hebrews 7:25).

3 - YOU MUST ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOUR - Tell God that you accept His pardon and that you now, through faith in God's word accept Jesus Christ into your heart and life. (Ephesians 2:8-9) "For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Salvation is absolutely free - you cannot work for it - you cannot pay for it - It is free - you just receive it from God.

After you have prayed to God asking Him to forgive you - then you must believe He has heard your prayer and forgiven your sins. That is faith. You say that is hard to do. No - it isn't. If you believe that God told the truth and the Bible is God's word - God will do what He said He would do. If you have prayed the sinner's prayer asking God to forgive you, (then he has forgiven you; His word tells you that and His word is the truth) and if you are forgiven, then you are saved. You must then continue to live in God's way - you must live for God. Believe that you are saved, begin to praise and worship God and thank him for saving your soul.

But you have doubts and say, "I don't feel any different." You say you still feel the way you did before, you don't feel like you are saved. Always remember, you are NOT SAVED by your feelings, you are saved by FAITH IN GOD'S WORD. If God said it - it is the truth, whether you feel like it or not. However, when you stand of God's word and by faith accept the Salvation that God offers, you WILL FEEL DIFFERENT. 

You will believe before you feel - you will feel the cleansing, you will feel the forgiveness of God, you will feel the assurance when you believe God's word and have confessed Jesus Christ as your Saviour.  (Romans 10:9-10). 

You will begin to feel peace, the peace that comes from knowing you are saved, that your sins have been forgiven and you will feel hope and optimism. 

The Word of God states (John 6:37), Jesus said, "Him that cometh unto Me, I will in no wise cast out." You have come to Jesus by faith; He has not cast you out - Jesus has taken you in - you are SAVED. Praise God. 

Raise your hands to God (in complete obedience and surrender). Say "thank you, Jesus, for saving my soul." Praise Him and Worship Him for what He has done for you. 

You are now saved, you have passed from death unto life (John 5:24). Your name has now been written in the "Lamb's Book of Life." (Revelation 20:15) The Angels are rejoicing in Heaven over this great victory over the devil. God has snatched your soul from Satan's grasp and the angels are rejoicing over this. (Luke 15:7)

RISE from you knees full of peace (John 14:27). Now go and tell someone about Jesus Christ and his love. Tell people what God has done for you. (Romans 10:9-10) "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth, the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be SAVED. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto Salvation."

Seek the Lord (James 4:8) and ask Him to fill you with the holy Ghost and Fire. 

Ask God to give you power for service (Luke 3:16) (Acts 1:4) (Acts 1:8) (Acts 2:4) (Acts 2:38-39). Read your Bible every day and pray to the Lord Jesus Christ. 

As you go about your life, witness to people about Jesus Christ. Find a good church where the pastor and the congregation believe the whole Bible, where they believe in holiness of life and separation from the world. 

Find a church where they believe in prayer for the sick and where the pastor and congregation have a burden to see the lost saved and brought to Jesus Christ.

May the Lord bless you and give you peace. Write me a letter if you have accepted the lord Jesus Christ as a result of reading this message.

If you prayed and ask Jesus Christ into your heart - YOU HAVE NOW RECEIVED THE GIFT OF SALVATION - YOU HAVE BECOME A CHILD OF GOD.  God Bless You.


Are you taking serious chances with your life and soul? Are you walking too close to the edge.  Jesus can save youTaking Serious Chances
ARE YOU WALKING TOO 
CLOSE
 TO THE EDGE?
By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

TOO FAR FROM THE SHORE!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


DEAR FRIEND:  Please write with your prayer requests.  We will pray for you and I will write you back!  When you write, please ask for a free prayer cloth over which we have prayed with faith in Jesus' Name, for your deliverance and salvation.                   - Pastor Max Solbrekken


HOW CAN I BE SAVED?
God is able, ready & willing to deliver you!
by: Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

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

Yes, my dear friend, God is still in the business of setting men and women free from their sins, sorrows, heartbreaks, fears and troubles.

In this age of frustrations, nervous tensions and mental collapses, Jesus Christ is still granting peace to the troubled, joy to the discouraged, strength to the weary and healing to the sick.

HOW CAN I BE SAVED?

1.  How can I be saved? What must I do to be saved? Will God forgive me, I have done horrible things? Can I be forgiven of my sins? What is salvation?ACKNOWLEDGE your sinful state (Romans 3:23, Isaiah 53:6)

5. 
How can I be saved? What must I do to be saved? Will God forgive me, I have done horrible things? Can I be forgiven of my sins? What is salvation?CONFESS Him as your Lord (Romans 10:9-10; Mark 8:34-38)

JESUS CHRIST CAME INTO THE WORLD ON A HOLY MISSION !

"For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved." (John 3:17)

Jesus declared, "For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost." (Luke 19:10)

Jesus Christ said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me". (John 14:6)

Salvation is totally a WORK OF GRACE, but we must be sincere in our prayers and believe in Jesus Christ's willingness to keep His Word; which He always does.  Jesus Christ offers salvation and gift of salvation is free to all who accept it.  If you wish to be saved you must:  

How can I be saved? What must I do to be saved? Will God forgive me, I have done horrible things? Can I be forgiven of my sins? What is salvation?No. 1 - Acknowledge your lost state!

The Bible says, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God". (Romans 3:23) "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all." (Isaiah 53:6)

Will God forgive me, I have done horrible things? Can I be forgiven of my sins? What is salvation?How can I be saved? What must I do to be saved? No. 2 - Believe the Gospel

"That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already." (John 3:15,18) "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life." (John 5:24)

How can I be saved? What must I do to be saved? Will God forgive me, I have done horrible things? Can I be forgiven of my sins? What is salvation?No. 3 - REPENT of your sins

The Bible says, "except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." (Luke 13:3) "Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon". (Isaiah 55:7)

Will God forgive me, I have done horrible things? Can I be forgiven of my sins? What is salvation?How can I be saved? What must I do to be saved? No. 4 - Receive Jesus Christ as your Saviour

The Bible says: "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)

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me." (Revelation 3:20) "He that hath the Son hath life: and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." (1 John 5:12)

What must I do to be saved? Will God forgive me, I have done horrible things? How can I be saved? Can I be forgiven of my sins? What is salvation?No. 5 - Confess Jesus Christ as your LORD

The Bible says: "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation". (Romans 10:9-10)

"Also I say unto  you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God." (Luke 12:8,9)

Dear friend, be assured that God will keep His Word, for He said:

"Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28) "Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink." (John 7:37)

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." (Isaiah 1:18)  

After you have prayed to God asking Him to forgive you - then you must believe He has heard your prayer and forgiven your sins. That is faith. You say that is hard to do. No - it isn't. 

If you believe that God told the truth and the Bible is God's word - God will do what He said He would do. If you have prayed the sinner's prayer asking God to forgive you, (then he has forgiven you; His word tells you that and His word is the truth) and if you are forgiven, then you are saved. 

You must then continue to live in God's way - you must live for God. Believe that you are saved, begin to praise and worship God and thank him for saving your soul.

But you have doubts and say, "I don't feel any different." You say you still feel the way you did before, you don't feel like you are saved. 

Always remember, you are NOT SAVED by your feelings, you are saved by FAITH IN GOD'S WORD. If God said it - it is the truth, whether you feel like it or not. However, when you stand of God's word and by faith accept the Salvation that God offers, you WILL FEEL DIFFERENT. 

Please write to me and let us know of your decision to serve the Lord! And what He has done for you. Always remember, Jesus loves you and wants too forgive, heal, bless and prosper you.


How do I invite Jesus Christ into my life? To invite Jesus into your life just Pray to God, a prayer - from your heart. Tell him that you are a sinner and you need to be forgiven. Tell Jesus that you believe he died for your sins. Tell him you want to change your life and turn away from sin. As Jesus into your heart.  Thats its - you are saved. Jesus now lives in your heart and you will become a new person with Jesus living in your heart. Salvation,salvation articles,salvation Bible scriptues verses, what is salvationHOW DO I INVITE 
JESUS CHRIST INTO MY LIFE?
Pray to God, a prayer - from your heart.  

Tell Him that you are a sinner and that you need forgiveness.  Tell him that you believe Jesus Christ died for your sins.  Tell him that you are willing to change, to turn away from sin.  Ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart and life and be your personal Saviour.

"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 1:12)

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." (2 Corinthians 5:17)

If you prayed and ask Jesus Christ into your heart - YOU HAVE NOW RECEIVED THE GIFT OF SALVATION - YOU HAVE BECOME A CHILD OF GOD.  God Bless You.
