Time of Trouble
SPOKE TO ME - WARN MY PEOPLE - THE END TIMES ARE NEAR - PREPARE FOR A TIME
I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from Whose face the
earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for
them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the
books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life;
and the dead wee judged out of those things which were written in the
books according to their works and death and hell were cast into the lake
of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found
written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
CHURCH IS GOING TO EXPERIENCE 'A BAPTISM OF SUFFERING'
standing on the threshold of a New Day! The end times, a time when the
Church of the living God, the bride of Christ will soon be raptured.
rapture, the second coming of Jesus Christ is near. But even sooner,
the Church will go through a 'Baptism of suffering'! A BAPTISM SUCH
AS WE HAVE NEVER BELIEVED POSSIBLE IN NORTH AMERICA AND THE FREE WORLD.
WILL HAPPEN WHEN JESUS CHRIST RAPTURES THE CHURCH?
Jesus Christ the Lord raptures the Church in what is called 'The Second
Coming of Christ', we will then, take our place with those who have fought
the battle and won, who have been diligent to the very end and made it
through victoriously; triumphing over evil, unrighteousness and
will come out of the "furnace of affliction" with not even the
smell of fire on our persons, the ropes of bondage burned off and a
testimony so powerful for our Lord God that no one will be able to
will then be a part of that glorious church without spot and
wrinkle that will be presented to our Heavenly Bridegroom by the Blessed
Holy Spirit, at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb when Jesus Christ returns
to rapture the church.
Bible says, "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him:
for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself
ready". (Revelation 19:7)
other words, the bride was not ready until a certain point in time, when
she decided to prepare for the marriage ceremony.
LAODECIAN CHURCH IS NOT READY
warned concerning the Seventh and Final Church Age. The word, Laodecian,
means "The people rule or power to the people". How
indicative of the age in which we live! The Democratic process means
"government; by the people, of the people, and for the people".
Even the so-called Socialistic and Communistic regimes espouse the
doctrine of the proletariat, the Peoples' Republic, etc.
the Church, we also see people ruling: popes, cardinals, and archbishops,
ruling without the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is missing in
many Protestant churches are they are totally devoid of God's
blessings as the people rule - electing, hiring and firing pastors and
other church leaders in the democratic process.
ARE DEFINITELY LIVING IN THE END TIMES
are living in the end times, facing war, world conflict and distress and
are awaiting the second coming of Jesus in the Rapture.
warned the final Church Age with these words, "And unto the angel
of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the
faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know
thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or
hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will
spew thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased
with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art
wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked".
invitation, however, is always there. "I counsel thee to buy of me
gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that
thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear;
and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see."
SPOKE TO ME ~ WARN MY PEOPLE THE END TIMES ARE NEAR - TO PREPARE FOR A
TIME OF TROUBLE
1 year ago, the Lord God spoke to my heart, "Warn My people to
prepare for a time of trouble", the beginning of the end times.
began to preach powerful sermons on end times, the rapture, the
second coming of Jesus and repentance. I preached powerful sermons
on faith, what to expect as the end times unfold such as the coming
judgments. I preached on the importance of being prepared and
balanced in the Christian walk. God gave me powerful sermons called 'Victory
the message 'Victory in Adversity', I tell of the 3 times God gave me
powerful sermons - a message for Canada and just recently, the fourth
time, with the warning of 'End Times ~ Coming Troubles'.
first time God spoke to me with a message for the nation of Canada was in
July 1967. I shared it by printed page in "The Cry of His
Coming", and also over our national radio broadcast. The sermon
was called, "A SALUTE TO CANADA". Canada was celebrating
our 100th birthday as a nation and God showed me Canada as a great nation
with His rich blessings upon us. We were a nation of freedom, opportunity
and plenty, but that if we did not repent of our sins and humble ourselves
before God, we would lose our greatness, and much of God's favor.
quoted the scripture, "RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTETH A NATION, BUT SIN IS A
REPROACH TO ANY PEOPLE." (Proverbs 14:34) Our magazine with the
Centennial Year Message "A Salute to Canada" was sent to all the
elected officials across Canada, civic officials (large cities),
provincial officials and national governments of our nation.
immediately received many kind letters from government officials thanking
me for the sermons. One person who responded very warmly and
enthusiastically was the Justice Minister of Canada, Pierre Elliott
years passed and the young Justice Minister became our 15th. Prime
Minister. Pierre Trudeau seemed to be leading the nation in a
dangerous leftward trend. Some of his policies that caused deep concern
were 1) abolition of capital punishment. 2) broadening of the Divorce
Laws. 3) legalizing homosexuality, lesbianism, & bestiality. 4)
legalizing abortion (not on demand). 5) seeking to legalize marijuana.
He then called an election.
SPOKE TO MY HEART TO BRING ANOTHER MESSAGE TO THE NATION. IT WAS
CALLED, 'MY MESSAGE TO PRIME MINISTER TRUDEAU'.
sent the message "My message to Prime Minister Trudeau"
out in booklet form by the tens of thousands across Canada and other
countries. A copy of the booklet as well as a cassette tape was sent to
the mayor of every large town or city in Canada, the MLA in each province,
every member of Parliament and all heads of major nations across the
world, both free and Communist. A copy of the message was also sent to the
Queen of England, the Pope of Rome and the Archbishop of Canterbury,
received many complimentary and kind letters from leaders across the
world. Only one person however, refused the cassette and booklet. Prime
Minister Edward Heath of Great Britain, returned both with a covering
letter stating that he could not accept them.
was stunned that such a reaction should come from a Conservative PM of
so-called Protestant England.
conferred with my wife Donna and our office manager, Margaret Graham.
Sister Graham asked if I wanted to give her a letter to the Prime Minister
of England! I said, "NO, I will wait for a more opportune
time"! We didn't have to wait long. Within a few months, Edward
Heath called a snap election to increase his seats in parliament and gain
a majority. Everyone seemed to think that he would win, but I KNEW
summoned Sister Graham into my office for a letter to Edward Heath. Here
is the substance of that letter (which I still have on file)
you refused and returned the cassette and booklet of the Gospel Message,
"My Message To Prime Minister Trudeau," you did not reject my
words or my letter, Mr. Prime Minister, you rejected the Word of God, the
Message of Jesus Christ and God's Warning to the Nations.
YOU WILL REPENT OF YOUR SINS, GOD WILL FORGIVE YOU. However, if you do not
repent and register this action in a letter to me, I know that you will be
the recipient of God's judgment for your actions. Furthermore, I prophesy
that you will not gain a majority in the forthcoming election, but you
will in fact lose the election and go into oblivion politically. Your days
of political power are numbered, Mr. Prime Minister.
Servant, Max Solbrekken
HEARD ME MAKE THE PUBLIC STATEMENT
began to make known what God had shown me. In our crusades and privately
as well, I shared the tremendous revelation of God's displeasure with
those who had rejected the message I had delivered as His servant, to
Government officials across the world.
declared publicly to thousands of people that God had revealed to me that
because the Prime Minister of Great Britain had rejected this message, God
had rejected him from being Prime Minister.
statement was that if Mr. Edward Heath did not lose that Election, they
would never hear me preach again.
IS HOW CERTAIN I WAS OF MY ABILITY TO HEAR THE HOLY SPIRIT - GOD'S VOICE.
said, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow
me." (John 10:27)
the election drew near, more and more people were reasonably sure that PM
Edward Heath would gain the majority he was seeking. During my crusade in
Trinidad, West Indies we heard the news of the Great Britain election.
Dennis White, who later became the Superintendent of the Pentecostal
Assemblies of the West Indies, was chauffeuring me around the Island.
I had just spoken at the West Indies School of Theology, where he
was president. I saw a small corner store and said, "Dennis, I
wish to purchase a paper; I want to see how badly Mr. Heath has
lost"! He replied, "Are you kidding, why would you make
such a statement"?
HEATH LOSES THE ELECTION IN GREAT BRITAIN
headlines screamed: "POLITICAL UPSET. IT'S A CLIFF HANGER; IT'S
A TIE." I said "Dennis, tomorrow, we will
read, "Edward Heath loses the Election"! It happened exactly
as I had stated! The date was February 28, 1974.
SERMON GOD GAVE ME - WHAT WAS IN THE MESSAGE?
the message God gave me was called, 'My Message to Prime Minister
Trudeau', it was directed at all government leaders instructing them
to repent of their sins and let God rule in their lives and in their
decisions as leaders.
wrote of King Nebuchadnezzar, who became proud of his accomplishments and
said, "Is not this Great Babylon, that I have built for the house
of the Kingdom, by the might of my power, and for the honor of my
majesty". (Daniel 4:30)
JUDGED KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR AND HE LOST HIS MIND.
seven years, the great king wandered about like an animal and ate grass as
an oxen until he acknowledged God. In the message, I told of KING HEROD,
who made an oration. They said, "It is the voice of a god and not
of a man". The scripture says, "He gave not God the glory
and God smote him until he died eaten of worms"! (Acts 12:23)
Prophet Samuel entered Bethlehem, THE CITY ELDERS trembled in fear of God:
"...And the elders of the town trembled at his coming, and said,
Comest thou peaceably?" (Sam. 16:4) Oh, how government officials
need to tremble before the servants of God again, in order to bring back
righteousness and sanity to the nations.
IS THE NATION WHOSE GOD IS THE LORD" (Psalms 33:12)
Paul spoke to KING AGRIPPA and challenged him with the glorious Gospel of
Jesus Christ. The scripture says that Agrippa cried out, "...Almost
thou persuadest me to be a Christian". (Acts 26:28) Again, when
Paul spoke to FELIX the Governor, he trembled because Paul spoke of "Righteousness,
temperance and judgment to come"! (Acts 24:25)
Bible says, "Righteousness exalteth a nation and sin is a reproach
to any people". (Proverbs 14:24) Again, God's Word declares, "When
the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked
beareth rule, the people mourn". (Proverbs 29:2) "Blessed
is the nation whose God is the Lord". (Psalms 33:12)
- IT'S TIME TO TURN AROUND
happened in the spring of 1978, in Kelowna, British Columbia. I was
awakened at 8:00 AM, the morning after a powerful meeting. The voice of
God had been speaking to my heart while I was sleeping. The message of God
was already in my mind, totally comprehendible and ready to deliver.
awakened with the words, "Canada Turn Around, Canada Turn Around,
CANADA COME BACK TO GOD," whirling around in my Spirit. So
powerful was this impression that I leaped out of bed, grabbed my Bible
and note paper, and wrote down the message which I knew God wanted me to
deliver across the nation and around the world.
turn around, come back to your senses! Come back to God and righteousness,
decency and reality.
began to preach sermons, declare and dispense this message of end times,
God, Rapture, Holy Spirit and repentance across the nation; in crusades,
by printed material, on television and radio. I must confess that the
impact of that crusade was stunted somewhat by two things.
was unable to get Canadian people to understand the importance of this
message enough to support it financially. Also, due to 3 hastily called
elections, I was unable to have some of the National and Provincial
government leaders appear with me on the television program, as they had
originally intimated they would do.
WAS THAT MESSAGE THAT GOD GAVE ME TO DELIVER?
message was a warning from God's Word for everyone to repent of
their sins and begin to live Godly lives in the light of the scriptures
and to begin to seek God with great intensity, honesty, sincerity and
should know that we are living in the final stages of the last days, end
time of God's grace upon the earth and that our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ
is coming again real soon.
Bible says, "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." (2 Chronicles 7:14)
PROMISES TO HEAR YOUR PRAYERS AND HEAL YOUR LAND IF YOU DO THESE FOUR
spells out directions for a Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit, heaven sent revival!
Here is the recipe: If God's people will do four things, God promises to
hear our prayers and bring healing to our Land. What are these four
things? Are they pinnacles of spiritual growth, never to be reached? No,
God would not ask us to do what we could not attain in the natural. He is
not unreasonable. The Bible says, "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)
CAN DO THESE FOUR THINGS:
3. Seek God's Face
4. Turn from our wicked ways
Bible says, "God resisteth the proud and giveth grace to the
YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD
must look to God for help - not to ourselves, government officials,
business leaders, educators or others. Jesus said, "Seek ye FIRST the
Kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you".
can and must HUMBLE ourselves and get rid of all dirty, filthy, sinful
pride as we reach out to love everyone regardless of skin color, racial
background, educational or social standing or financial worth.
the scriptural way to humble ourselves is to fast. We must realize that we
cannot save ourselves or heal the hearts of people in our strength. God is
our source. He is the Saviour & Deliverer.
us begin to PRAY to God on a regular basis as we praise Him for His love
and grace. God wants us to make our petitions known to Him FIRST
before we ask our fellowmen for help.
Asa was diseased in his feet and went to the physicians for help instead
of praying to the Lord. The Bible says, "Asa sought the help of
the physicians and died". (2 Chronicles 16:12) It is not
wrong to seek help of physicians so long as you have sought God first and
have laid out your petition to Him first.
is God who rules in the lives of men. Let us not forget that. That is why
St. Paul stated, "Pray without ceasing". (1 Thessalonians
5:17) What did he mean? Stay in an attitude of prayer. Keep
your lines of communication open between God and yourself.
GOD CAN HEAL OUR LAND
can and must pray and go even further. Let us SEEK GOD with all our
hearts. In order to seek God, we must walk close enough to Him to see His
face and feel His power,
seek God means to desire His presence. To want to be near Him and share
all our intimate and urgent needs with Him. And to spend time praising and
thanking Him for all His goodness to us.
God's grace, let us all TURN AWAY from the lusts of the flesh and the sins
of the spirit and conduct ourselves as true followers of Christ in all
humility and righteousness. We have His promise that when we, the Church,
have done these things, then God will hear our prayers and answer in great
demonstration of Holy Ghost power.
Bible says, "Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteousness
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
ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath
righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with
darkness?" (2 Corinthians 6:14)
a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn
away." (2 Timothy 3:5)
YOUR FACE TO THE WALL
King Hezekiah became ill, the prophet came to him with a message, "...Thus
saith the Lord, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not
live". (2 Kings 20:1) The scriptures tell us that King Hezekiah
turned his face to the wall and "wept sore" (v.3) as he
repented and asked for mercy. God heard his prayer and gave him an
additional fifteen years of life.
problem you may have, God is greater than all the power of the devil and
sin. He is greater than sickness, disease, fear and poverty! Praise God
solution comes when we turn our faces to the wall and ask Jesus to
intervene! His Word states, "And call upon Me in the day of
trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify Me". (Psalms
high time to surrender to the Lord's Word and will. "...turn
yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your
abominations." (Ezekiel 14:6) "...and how ye turned to
God from idols to serve the living and True God." (1
Bible says, "Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous
man his thoughts: and let him return (TURN) unto the Lord, and he will
have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon".
people had corrupted themselves with idol worship from the greatest to the
least. Only ELIJAH and a faithful silent group of 7,000 who had not bowed
their knees to Baal.
prophet Elijah was grieved in his heart and brought down God's judgment
upon that wicked nation in the form of a drought. After 3 1/2 years,
ELIJAH showed himself and COMMANDED all the false prophets to gather on
Mount Carmel for a showdown.
was his challenge, "...How long halt ye between two opinions? if
the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him".
Word says, "My people have committed two evils, They have forsaken
Me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken
cisterns, that can hold no water". (Jeremiah 2:13)
- in His great wisdom and compassion - marveled at the foolishness of His
people. It's almost ludicrous that a man who knew God would forsake Him,
turn away from the true God and be deceived by the devil into worshipping
dead idols. This was the case with Solomon when he became old! (1 Kings
anyone could leave the Church, the Gospel and the goodness of God, with
it's fountain of living water and be turned to dumb idols, sinful
practices, lustful pleasures, greed and the doctrine of works, I WILL
NEVER KNOW! For these are no more than broken cisterns that can hold no
water, NO PEACE, NO JOY, NO FORGIVENESS, NO HEALING AND NO PROMISE OF
Bible says, "...In Thy presence is fullness of joy; at Thy right hand
there are pleasures for evermore". (Psalms 16:11)
answers to man's perplexing questions and the riddles of life, are found
only through Jesus Christ our Lord and in His Divinely Inspired and Sacred
Word, The Bible. On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other
ground is sinking sand."
MUST PREPARE OURSELVES FOR A TIME OF TROUBLE
are living in the End Times - The rapture of the church is near. A
large segment of the Christian community seems to be living under an
illusion that the rapture of the church will take place before anyone
tastes even a little bit of difficulty and tribulation.
ME SAY CLEARLY THAT THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE FALLACY AND UNSCRIPTURAL
the onset however, let me clarify that I believe in a pre-tribulation
rapture and that the Church of Jesus Christ WILL NOT go through the Great
Tribulation, written of in the Book of Revelation. In fact, there
are three Tribulation Periods spoken of in the Bible.
FIRST TRIBULATION - The first tribulation began on the day of
Pentecost and the devil has been tribulating and persecuting the Church
ever since. The first tribulation period will conclude when the last
gentile is saved by the precious blood of Jesus Christ, and Jesus Christ
returns in the first stage of His coming.
SECOND TRIBULATION - The second tribulation is that period of seven
years known as "Jacob's Troubles" or "Daniels 70th
Week" and the second tribulation is also known as the "Great
Tribulation". The second tribulation will begin the moment
Christ's bride is taken away from this earth and will conclude just before
the beginning of "The Millennial Reign of Christ". This
will be a time when God out pours His wrath on the Ant-Christ and a wicked
THIRD TRIBULATION - The third tribulation begins when the feet of
Jesus Christ stand on the Mount of Olives in the second stage of His
return. (Zechariah 14:4). The resurrected glorified Son of God and
Savior will then mount a white horse (Revelation 19:11) and ride out to
the Valley of Jehosophat, to conquer the Anti-Christ. This I refer
to as The Anti-Christ's Tribulation.
Christ will destroy the Anti-Christ with the breath his mouth.
