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
to receive healing from Jesus Christ and answers to your prayers
Bible says, "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today and
forever." (Hebrews 13:8)
GOD ANSWER PRAYERS?
LUTHER the great reformer said, "How often has it happened, and
still does, that devils have been driven out in the name of Christ; also
by calling on His Name and prayer, and the sick have been healed."
WESLEY, founder of the
Methodist Church, stated: "I believe that God can open the eyes of
the blind, cause the lame to walk, and the deaf to hear, if men will have
faith in God; stand on the word of God, and pray according to the faith
that God hath given them, God will do the things He said He would because
He is a never-changing God."
SIMPSON, founder of
Christian & Missionary Alliance, declared, "If ever there was an
age where the world needed the witness of God's supernatural working, it
is in this day of unbelief and Satan's power."
we may expect, as the end approaches, that the Holy Ghost will work in the
healing of sickness, in the casting out of demons, in remarkable answers
to prayer, in special and wonderful providences, and in such form as may
please His sovereign will to an unbelieving world."
CHARLES H. MAYO, Mayo
Brothers Clinic, said: "Christian healing has passed beyond the stage
of experience and its value cannot be questioned. Spiritual healing
is no longer the hope of a few but the belief and practice of a large and
rapidly increasing number of person."
CHRIST said: If thou canst beieve;
all things are possible to him that believeth." (Mark 9:23)
these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out
devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents;
and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay
hands on the sick, and they shall recover." (Mark 16:17-18)
SOLBREKKEN, God's humble servant,
says: "That God is a healer is no secret. That his Word has
amazing saving, healing and creative power is well known. But that
his power to save, heal and deliver is readily available at absolutely NO
COST, is not widely known."
people believe that there are strings attached, a price to pay, good works
to do, a guru to follow, and that God favors only a few with answers to
HEALING IS A GIFT FROM GOD TO THOSE WHO ARE FEARFUL, HURTING, SICK &
healing is a gift from God to those who are fearful, hurting, sick and
diseased. And He offers it freely through the death & resurrection of
His Son Jesus Christ, by Whom He has defeated sin, sickness, fear, death
& Satan. God does answer prayers.
GLORY TO GOD FOREVER.
wish to thank my Heavenly Father for His grace, goodness and mercy toward
me and for the many years that He has given me life, health & strength
to continue in His vineyard!
I thank my precious Saviour Jesus Christ for the outpouring of the Blessed
Holy Spirit upon this ministry and the staggering miracles which He has
performed for the glory of Almighty God.
a special thank you to my daughters Betty & Diane for their superb
work of typing and retyping this manuscript & many others, during the
past decade or so. TO GOD BE THE GLORY. -Max
TO RECEIVE HEALING FROM JESUS CHRIST AND ANSWERS TO YOUR PRAYERS
little booklet was written in 1965 - only 2 years after I had entered the
ministry - and brought the healing message of Jesus Christ to multitudes.
It was titled, "HOW TO RECEIVE HEALING FROM JESUS CHRIST."
miracles of divine healing and deliverance have been wrought by our
blessed Lord Jesus through this ministry, during the past four decades.
truths found in this message are still basic and necessary for each of us,
if we are to experience the presence of the Holy Spirit which brings the
healing virtue of Jesus Christ into our lives. God does answer prayers,
but He knows the best time and the best solution for each of us.
doubt, God is still as interested in the human family as ever and His Word
is still true and "by His stripes we are healed."
one can change that~ God proves His great love to us by forgiving
our sins and healing our sicknesses, and answering our prayers, as
Dr. A.B. SIMPSON, founder of Christians & Missionary Alliance -
concurred many years ago in his powerful book, "The Gospel of
David declared: "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)
the Psalmist proclaims: "He hath sent His Word, and healed them, and
delivered them from their destructions." "Oh that men
would praise the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the
children of men." (Psalm. 107: 20-21)
is our kind and caring Heavenly Father, and it has been my joy to see his
hand outstretched toward the sinful, sick and suffering these many years.
Over the years we have seen thousands of prayers answered and glorious
miracles of healing in bodies, lives and families. All glory and praise to
His wonderful name, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
is my prayer that as we reprint this little "messenger of hope",
faith will rise in many hearts, faith that God will fulfill his word and
answer your prayer. I pray that great blessings will touch
multitudes of lives.
you, my dear friend, receive God's blessing and an answer to your prayers!

FOR THE SICK
Through Faith In Jesus Christ
is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward." (Job 5:7)
are the afflictions of the righteous; but the Lord delivereth him out of
them all." (Psalms. 34:19)
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)
and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be
opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh
findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” (Matthew
IS HOPE FOR YOU - THERE IS HEALING FOR YOU - GOD WILL ANSWER YOUR PRAYERS
today are suffering from a disease or infirmity with no relief in sight.
They have frequented doctors, clinics and hospitals with little or no help
- and are discouraged, angry and bitter!
have prayed earnestly regarding their healing, had special prayer in their
church by the pastor and elders or by an evangelist whom God uses to bring
healing to the sick through faith in Jesus Christ - and still are not
healed! Many become discouraged thinking that God is not listening
to their prayers or that they are not important enough for him to give
them answers to their prayers.
someone reading this booklet fits one of these categories. After your
hospital visit or prayer service, you are “not better”. You may even
be getting worse! Your faith is at a low ebb and you’re tired of being
tired, sick and defeated. You are tired of hoping and believing without
any answers to your prayers.
feel like throwing up your hands in despair since nothing helps, and
accept weakness, pain, sickness and distress as your lot in life!
DEAR FRIEND, THERE IS STILL HOPE FOR YOU.
It is not too late. It may seem hopeless, but it is not. It may seem
useless to think of deliverance, but it is not. So long as you are alive
and there is a God in Heaven, there is hope!
Bible says, “With men this is impossible, but not with God, for with God
all things are possible”. (Mark 10:27) It may seem impossible to you but
with God NOTHING is impossible.
extremity becomes God’s opportunity. And when man fails, that’s when
God can take over, for He never fails. When man “gives up on you”, God
is ready, willing and able to step in and bring to pass a miracle in your
life, because nothing is impossible with Him!
CAN & WILL ANSWER YOUR PRAYER! When
God could bring the world into being by His spoken Word, hang the universe
on nothing, fling the sun, moon and stars into the far most corner of the
night to rotate in perfect harmony, HE CAN ANSWER YOUR PRAYER. You
must be patient and continue to pray and seek God, as he will answer your
prayers when he feels the time is right.
the Word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by
the breath of His mouth." (Psalm 33:6). Since He has the
ability to create millions of moons, galaxies of stars and heavenly bodies
by a few words from Hs lips, most assuredly He is able to destroy the
cancer, heart disease, diabetes or arthritis which is stealing your
AT THE TOUCH OF HIS HAND, GOD CREATED A PERFECT HUMAN BEING IN HIS OWN
IMAGE AND BREATHED INTO MAN’S NOSTRILS THE BREATH OF LIFE MAKING HIM A
LIVING SOUL, SURELY HE CAN HEAL YOUR SICK SPIRIT, SOUL (MIND) AND BODY.
HE HAS PROMISED HEALING, GOD HAS PROMISED ANSWERS TO YOUR PRAYERS.
Great God Who brought back to life the Lord Jesus Christ, can certainly
quicken your mortal body. When you think of how great and mighty our God
is, certainly nothing could be impossible to Him!
Paul declares: "But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from
the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also
quicken - make life in - your mortal (temporal, dying) bodies by His
Spirit that dwelleth in you". (Romans 8:11)
God able to heal our weak, aging, temporal bodies? Yes, He is able to and
He does! Is God able to answer your prayers. Yes - He is
willing to answer your prayers. The Bible says, “All things are
possible to him that believeth”. (Mark 9:23) Since He (the Holy
Spirit) brought Jesus Christ back from the dead, He can most certainly
heal our diseased and dying bodies, says St. Paul.
verse 26, the great apostle continues, "Likewise the Spirit also
helpeth our infirmities (lit. greek - takes a hold of against our
sicknesses): for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the
Spirit itself (Himself) maketh intercession for us (lit. greek - and
together with us) with groanings (Holy Spirit prayer - praying in tongues)
which cannot be uttered".
same Blessed Holy Spirit Who raised Jesus Christ from the dead dwells
within us and "takes a hold of against our sickness" and
“together with us” prays to our Heavenly Father for our healing and
THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO HIM THAT BELIEVETH"
Bible says, “All things are possible to him that believeth”. (Mark
9:23) The first truth we have established is that your case is not too
difficult for God and there is a good possibility of your healing to take
place We have also established that God is able and willing to heal
you - to answer your prayers!
BIBLE STATES THAT JESUS CAME TO BRING LIFE!
thief cometh not but for to steal and to kill and destroy, but I am come
that they might have life and have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)
stated that the devil came for only three reasons; to steal, kill and
destroy! But Jesus came to bring life! The devil is a thief and a murderer
(John 8:44) and came only to do evil (steal, kill and destroy). He
came to rob you of your happiness, joy, peace, health and blessing. He
came to harm you and finally destroy you in a hospital, insane asylum or
devil is cruel, perverted, evil, wicked and ungodly. He can only do evil.
He has no capability to do good. The devil is the death giver!
IS 100% GOOD! He came to bring life. He came to
bring blessings to all who would believe. HE CAME TO BRING ABUNDANT LIFE
BECAUSE HE IS THE LIFE GIVER! Some people have given the devil the credit
for healing sick people - this is blasphemous and utterly false. It is
contrary to God’s Word and accuses Jesus of telling an untruth.
know that Jesus is the truth, the life and the way (John 14:6). The Word
of God is pure, divine and infallible!
SAID THAT YOU CANNOT GET GOOD FRUIT FROM A CORRUPT TREE OR CORRUPT FRUIT
FROM A GOOD TREE. By their fruits
we shall know them! Jesus said a corrupt tree “bringeth not forth good
fruit”. (Matthew 7:18) It is against the law of a thorn tree to bring
forth figs - you can’t get sweet water out of a fountain that is bitter.
COULD THE DEVIL, WHO IS COMPLETELY EVIL, BRING FORTH SOMETHING THAT IS
called the devil a thief who came only to steal, kill and destroy. He came
to this earth for no other purpose! Jesus came to bring life! Healing and
health is life! Sickness and disease brings death! The Bible classifies
'healing' as 'doing good'!
God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power, Who
went about doing good, healing all who were oppressed of the devil.”
message is plain and simple: The devil made people sick but Jesus made
them well. Sickness comes from satanic sources and divine healing has its
origin in God! The literal Greek states that Jesus Christ healed all
those who "were under the dominion, authority or lordship of
Satan". That is God's Word - Believe it and be healed;
MAY APPEAR THAT WITCH DOCTORS AND OCCULTS MAY HEAL OR CURE BUT BE NOT
I know there are times that it appears witch doctors and other occultists
may have affected cures by their incantations. Do not be deceived.
Satan is a deceiver and manipulator. In the end, his involvement
always brings enslavement, torment & death.
magicians (witch doctors and soothsayers) of Egypt could duplicate many of
the miracles performed by Moses in the sight of Pharaoh (king) of Egypt.
There were two things they could not do, however.
- They could not get rid of the plagues even though they could duplicate
Moses in bringing forth the flies and frogs. Moses had to be called to get
rid of the plagues: eg. darkness, flies, frogs, lice, locusts.
Interpretation: Satan can bring the cancer but he has no power to heal the
person from the death-dealing work of the disease which he has brought.
God is the only healer and restorer!
- When it comes to creating life, the magicians could not create lice out
of dust as Moses did in the Name of the Lord.
magicians said to Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God”. (Ex. 8:19)
Here is the interpretation: Satan is a deceiver and trickster but he has
no power to do good, heal, save or create life! All he can do is deceive,
lie, steal and kill! Only God can heal and create life and sustain
are some things you must do if you are to be healed. Study the accounts of
sick folk - in the Bible - who were healed, and if you do what they did,
you will certainly receive healing, because Jesus Christ is no respector

is only ONE HEALER, Jesus Christ. He alone is the Great Physician. Seek
Him and worship Him, and turn from every known sin. Seek the Healer and
not the healing!
your attention on Jesus. Worship, praise and magnify His Name and His
love, forgiveness and healing will automatically flow into you!
behold, there came a leper and worshipped Him, saying, Lord, if Thou wilt,
Thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth His hand, and touched him,
saying, I will, be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was
cleansed”. (Matthew 8:2-3)
WHO SEEK ONLY A HEALING OR MIRACLE OR ANSWERS TO PRAYER WITHOUT
WORSHIPPING GOD - WILL BE GREATLY DISAPPOINTED
seeking God through Jesus Christ, you will establish a vital contact with
the Great Physician and receive your miracle and answers to your prayers.
People who seek only a healing or a miracle or answers to prayers without
worshipping God, will be greatly disappointed.
REMEMBER, KNOWING GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST AND THE BLESSED HOLY SPIRIT -
WITHOUT BEING HEALED PHYSICALLY - IS FAR MORE ADVANTAGEOUS THAN GETTING
ONLY A PHYSICAL MIRACLE WITHOUT RECEIVING JESUS CHRIST AS SAVIOUR AND
was in a desperate situation. His daughter was at the point of death when
he decided to seek out the Master. Here is the Bible account.
He spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and
worshipped Him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay Thy
hand upon her, and she shall live. And Jesus arose, and followed him, and
so did His disciples.
behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years,
came behind Him, and touched the hem of His garment: For she said within
herself, If I may but touch His garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus
turned Him about, and when He saw her, He said, Daughter, be of good
comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from
when Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the minstrels and the
people making a noise, He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not
dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed Him to scorn. But when the people
were put forth, He went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid
arose.” (Matt. 9:18-25)
WOMAN WORSHIPS JESUS!
behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto Him,
saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is
grievously vexed with a devil. But He answered her not a word. And His
disciples came and besought Him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth
after us. But He answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep
of the house of Israel. “Then came she and worshipped Him, saying, Lord,
He answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and
to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the
crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Then Jesus answered and
said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou
wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.” (Matt.
Bible states, “And as they went to tell His disciples. behold, Jesus met
them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and
worshipped Him”. (Matt. 28:9)
HEARS THE PRAYERS AND ANSWERS THE PRAYERS OF THOSE WHO WORSHIP HIM
doubt, God hears your prayers and God answers the prayers of those who
worship Him. And all who are saved and healed by God’s power WILL desire
to worship Him!
blind man whom Jesus healed is a good example of that fact: “Jesus heard
that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said unto him,
Dost thou believe on the Son of God? He answered and said, Who is He,
Lord, that I might believe on Him? And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both
seen Him, and it is He that talketh with thee.
he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped Him”. (John 9:35-38)
the Samaritan woman, Jesus said, “But the hour cometh, and now is, when
the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for
the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that
worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth”. (John 4:23-24)
2 - HUMBLE YOURSELF!
is a gigantic hindrance to receiving divine healing! “But He answered
and said it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to
she said, truth, Lord, yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from
their master’s table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman,
great is thy faith, be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter
was made whole from that very hour.” (Matthew 15:26-28)
is the account of a Canaanite woman humbling herself in the sight of God.
When she did, Jesus granted her request! Her daughter was healed!
GOOD EXAMPLE OF HOW GOD REWARDS HUMILITY IS FOUND IN THE HEALING ACCOUNT
Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at the door of
the house of Elisha. And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and
wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and
thou shalt be clean.
Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will
surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the Lord his
God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper. Are not
Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of
Israel? may I not wash in them, and be clean? So he turned and went away
in a rage.
his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the
prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it?
how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean?
went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the
saying of the man of God: and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of
a little child, and he was clean.” (2 Kings 5:9-14)
people believe that they will receive something from God because of WHO
THEY ARE OR THINK THEY ARE! We do not receive healing because we are
worthy, but because we are needy. And Jesus Christ met that need nearly
2000 years ago on the cross!
RECEIVE HEALING FROM GOD BECAUSE OF HIS GRACE AND MERCY AND BECAUSE OF HIS
WORD - NOT BECAUSE WE DESERVE IT - HEALING IS A GIFT
is only because of His great liberality to us by sending His Son Jesus
Christ, to die in our place and purchase our salvation, that we receive
forgiveness and divine healing from His gracious and loving land!
must never forget that forgiveness, divine healing, the gifts and graces
of God which He bestows upon us are simply that - gifts of God’s mercy
3 - BELIEVE IN GOD’S INTEGRITY, ABILITY AND WILLINGNESS TO KEEP HIS
PROMISES TO US
that God’s Word is absolutely true and that it will never pass away! The
Heavens and the Earth will pass away, but God’s Word will stand forever.
(Matthew 24:35) God’s Word is as pure and divine as God Himself
HOLY SCRIPTURES IS GOD’S WORD!
Lord God Almighty is “back of” His Word, and it will never fail (1
Kings 8:56). God has placed “His Word” above “His Name” (Psalm
138:2). His Word has gone out of His mouth in righteousness and will not
shall My word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return
unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall
prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11)
will perform every Word He has spoken. “Then said the Lord unto me, Thou
hast well seen: for I will hasten My word to perform it.” (Jeremiah
1:12) “So shall My word be that goeth forth out of My mouth: it shall
not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and
it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11) Believe
that God’s Word is the final authority and that IT IS GOOD TODAY!
Then, appropriate His Word to yourself, for your own individual need!
said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to
preach the gospel to the poor, He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted,
to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the
blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable
year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:18-20)
Bible says, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of
God.” (Romans 10:17) Jesus asked two blind men, “Believest thou
that I am able to do this (heal them)?” They answered, “Yea, Lord”.
Jesus touched their eyes saying, “According to your faith be it unto
you”, and they were instantly healed!
said, “If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that
believeth”. (Mark 9:23)
Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me: or else believe Me for
the very works’ sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth
on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these
shall he do; because I go unto My Father.
whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be
glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in My name, I will do
it.” (John 14:11-14)
4 - TAKE GOD AT HIS WORD!
Bible says, “...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)
promised: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh
receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall
be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8)
the even was come, they brought unto Him many that were possessed with
devils: and He cast out the spirits with His word, and HEALED ALL THAT
WERE SICK: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the
prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.”
hundred years before His birth in Bethlehem, the Holy Spirit promised
divine healing through the Coming Messiah!
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)
is the beginning of the fulfillment of that prophecy: “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
are three very important spiritual laws which Jesus Christ gave His Church:
Law of Binding & Loosing
The Law of Agreement
The Law of God's Presence
three laws, when acted upon in faith, bring divine healing and total
deliverance to those who call upon the Lord in sincerity and trust!
I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in
heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any
thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father which is
where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the
midst of them.” (Matthew 18:18-20)
Law of Binding & Loosing is found in Matthew 18:18
The Law of Agreement is contained in Matthew 18:19
The Law of God's Presence is written in Matthew 18:20
a full treatment of this subject, write for booklet on ‘The Laws of God
& Divine Healing’!
5 - RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR HEALER
to the Lord that you Believe His Word and that you Know He is your Healer!
with the Scriptures. Agree with Jesus Christ, that you Accept His promises
as true and infallible! Confess to Him that you Believe that “By His
Stripes you are Healed”.
Thank Him for healing you and for answering your prayers.
Trust the Lord for complete deliverance. Relax and get well for according
to His Word, He has healed you.
Bible says, “Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He
shall bring it to pass”. (Psalm 37:5)
said, "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) Jesus Christ promises that he will hear and answer your
MAY RECEIVE AN IMMEDIATE ANSWER TO YOUR PRAYERS. YOU MAY BE HEALED
SUDDENLY OR YOU MAY BEGIN TO AMEND AS ALSO HAPPENED IN THE MINISTRY OF OUR
LORD JESUS CHRIST!
“Then enquired he of them
the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the
seventh hour the fever left him. So the father knew that it was at the
same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself
believed, and his whole house.” (John 4:52-53)
READ WITH JOY THESE
WORDS OF LIFE: “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”. (James 5:14-16)
You may receive divine
healing in one of various ways - through the laying on of hands, anointing
with oil, prayer of agreement or praying alone to our Heavenly Father in
Jesus’ dear Name, in your home!
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHICH
WAY GOD HEALS YOU, SO LONG AS YOU ARE HEALED
Give God all the glory.
Share with others what God has done so that you may rejoice together and
glorify the Name of Jesus. Remember, Jesus said in Mark 9:23 - “ALL
THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO HIM THAT BELIEVETH”.
Allow me now to offer a
prayer to God on your behalf.
“Kind Heavenly Father, I
pray in Jesus’ Name that you will extend Your hand of mercy, forgiveness
and divine healing right now to each and everyone who is reading this
“Upon the authority of
God’s Word, by the blood of the everlasting covenant, through the
eternal Spirit of God and in Jesus’ all powerful Name, I command Satan
to take his hands off each one reading this booklet now!
“Every evil spirit of
torment, infirmity and unrighteousness must leave NOW, in Jesus’ Name.
“Heavenly Father, please
lay your healing hand on the sick, infirm and sinful right now and save,
heal and deliver them all.”
THANK YOU LORD. I BELIEVE IT
IS DONE AND I PRAISE YOU IN JESUS' HOLY & PRECIOUS NAME."
VERSE CAN CURE
SICKNESS & DISEASE
Pastor Max Solbekken, D.D.
said, 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)
NONE OF THESE
One of the
most helpful books in print today is the classic, 'None of These Diseases'
by Dr. S.I. McMillan.
Dr. S.I. McMillan, a prominent medical doctor uses humor, common sense and
a biblical perspective, in dealing with the causes and cures of today's
lamentable that peace does not come in capsules", he utters in
failure as he remembers the thousands of patients who left his office with
"nothing but a prescription for a bottle of pills that would only
relieve the symptoms of their illness but not attack the diseases.
doctor laments that he now wishes he had rather prescribed his book, 'None
of These Diseases', so that a permanent cure could have been affected!
According to Medical Science, between 60 and 100% of all diseases are
caused by nervous tension, emotional stress and strain.
states that emotions such as fear, sorrow, envy, resentment and hatred are
responsible for the majority of our sicknesses and diseases. And
that emotional stress can cause high blood pressure, toxic goiter,
arthritis, migraine headaches, apoplexy, heart trouble, gastro-intestinal
ulcers and other serious illnesses and diseases.
(about 1996) the American Medical Association released the findings of a
nation-wide survey of tens of thousands of their medics. One of the
questions dealt with their success ratio in treating patients. The
answer is shocking - Only 10% of patients had received any lasting help
through their medical procedures.

physicians for a long time.

MOSES, GOD MADE HIS HEALING COVENANT WITH THE JEWISH NATION
Moses was born
about the time the 'Papyrus Ebers' was written in Egypt. He was
educated in their highest schools of learning - scholars think he was also
a physician - as the son of Pharaoh's daughter.
But when God
called Moses to lead His people out of Egyptian bondage, he did not borrow
from the "occultist clap-trap" in their medical books of disease
remedies. He rejected the highest, most respected medical authority
of that day.
directive was "Heed the voice of God, do right, obey His
commandments, keep His statutes and I will heal you".
God did not
borrow medical advice from the 'Papyrus Ebers'. His advice to Moses was
contrary to the most highly respected medical thought of that day.
WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN STOPPING THE BLACK DEATH DISEASE
Europeans died of the disease Leprosy for hundreds of years. Some
physicians thought the cause of the disease Leprosy was eating hot food or
the meat of diseased hogs. Others blamed the disease Leprosy on
malign conjunction of the planets.
60 million people died from the BLACK DEATH disease in the 14th century.
Dr. George Rosen of Columbia University writes: "Leadership was taken
by the Church, as the physicians had nothing to offer. The Church
took as its guiding principal the concept of contagion as embodied in the

great feat...in methodical eradication of disease."
Church needs to investigate measures to insure that the AIDS epidemic does
not leap from high risk groups to the general population, since
governmental and medical bodes are again "doing nothing".
in Europe, multitudes perished from deadly diseases because of improper
hygiene, sanitation and sloppy hospitals. In many villages, human
excrement and waste was dumped into the streets, bringing deadly diseases,
creating epidemics of typhoid, cholera and dysentery.
GOD HAD GIVEN
INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE BURYING OF WASTES 3500 YEARS AGO
to the problem that was causing these deadly diseases, the burying of
wastes, had been given by God 3500 years before (in Deuteronomy 23:12-13).
MORTALITY RATE - GOOD HYGIENE STOPPED DISEASES FROM SPREADING
Vienna in the
1840s was famous as a medical center. One of the most famous
teaching hospitals of that day was Allegemeine Krakenhus. In
its maternity ward, one out of six women died.
Semmelveis discovered that if doctors washed their hands well, after doing
autopsies and before examining expectant mothers, the mortality rate
was not applauded by the Medical Profession. However, he was
ridiculed by his peers, discredited, lost his position and eventually
succumbed to the pressure, dying in a mental hospital.
given the same advice many centuries before (in Numbers 19). If
wasn't until 1878 that the method of cleaning hands and instruments was
introduced by men like John Tyendall, Louis Pasteur and Sir Joseph Lister
that the mortality rate began to drop.
The New York
State Department of Health, in 1960, issued a book describing a method of
washing the hands very similar to that found the BIBLE - Numbers Chapter
FOUNDER OF THE METHODIST CHURCH DECLARED IT WAS GOD'S WILL FOR MIRACLES TO
BE IN THE CHURCH, BUT THE MIRACLES HAD BEEN LOST DUE TO UNBELIEF

declared that it is God's will for miracles to be in the Church, for the
entire Church age, but have been lost to the church because of UNBELIEF.
stated, "The only method of physics employed by the Early Church for
the first 400 years, was the prayer of faith."
science has come a long way since Papyrus Ebers was published in 1552, BC
and even since the 1840's in Vienna, but I still think that when your
family physician advises you to get a second or third opinion about an
operation, its a good idea.

DOCTOR ANSWERS QUESTIONS ON FAITH HEALING
Dr. A. Wagenaar of Hilversum, Holland
Dr. Wagenaar, will you tell us what your position is in the field of
"I have been medical superintendent in the
Orchidee Hospital, Hilversum, for the last six years. Before that I was a
family doctor for 23 years in Dordrecht."
Do you believe in
miracles of healing?
"Of course! In my practice as a family doctor I have seen many
miracles take place."
When is healing
"When it is not the result of medical
Can a miracle not be
explained away psychologically?
"No, that is not to be thought of. Just
as you cannot explain away the miracles of the New Testament.
physician knows that spontaneous miracles do occur. You will be interested
to know that spontaneous hearings have even been reported in patients who
suffer from cancer. This has been publicized several times in medical
journals. Medical science has admitted that miracles do occur after the
prayer of faith."
You said that you have
seen miracles occur in your practice. Could you give us an example?
"Yes, in Dordrecht I had a very busy practice.
A family doctor in the course of his practice meets many people who are in
urgent need of medical help and he does all he can to help them.
will tell you about one patient. He used to play music in bars and was
inclined to treat life lightly. He needed an operation and I gave him a
card for the hospital. But before he was to be operated on I asked him to
go with me to one of Ev. Johan Maasbach's big meetings. He agreed and,
during the meeting, concentrated on God. When he went later to check in
for the operation the surgeon said, You can go home, we are not going to
operate on you, you are totally healed!"
Have you advised other
people too to go to Johan Maasbach's meetings?
"Yes, many! Generally after an
introductory talk and often after I have spoken to one of the elders of
the church; I asked the elder to visit my patient and, so to speak, break
the ice. I know that Br. Maasbach sends the patient on to the Heavenly
Doctor who can do more than all the branches of science combined.
and above those I have mentioned I have sent many others to Br. Maasbach
after they had been to consult me. I have seen them saved in the meeting
and healed as well. I am so glad that in this time when one church after
another is being broken down there are still people who let their voices
be heard more than ever. We urgently need more men like Johan Maasbach.
is a man who has preached for many years that sickness usually comes from
within - from the heart of man - and is often the result of hate, envy,
grudges and bitterness. Now medical science too admits that many diseases
are a result of inner tensions!"
You believe then that
Br. Maasbach is not being medically irresponsible in what he preaches?
"No indeed! He preaches that people who come
forward for healing must bring not only their sins but also their cares
and all their inner problems to God. That is a healing truth. That is
How did you yourself
come to faith in Christ?
"I will tell you! When I was a young man of 23
1 almost drowned. I was trying to save a woman who had fallen into the
water and it nearly resulted in my own death. However, after fighting for
my life and finally reaching dry land, I was a new man. I knew that I had
reached a spiritual turning point. God had let me live!"
What do you think about
certain doctors who have seen miracles with their own eyes and still
refuse to believe?
"I have met people who have had their healing
confirmed by many people and who afterwards went to various doctors to
demonstrate their hea5;ng only to be rejected. I must assume that these
doctors are totally blind to God's existence..
is not however a problem peculiar to medical science; you know as well as
I do that many ministers, preachers and priests; are just as blind to the
message of divine heating."
Doctor, do you often
speak to your patients about faith in Jesus Christ?
"I always do so when I feel so guided. When you
know that, medically speaking, there is no cure possible then - at least
this is how it is for me - you can only speak a positive word, the Word of

tensions to the Lord. Only He, Jesus Christ, can give that desperately
Do you think that later
a medical cure may be found for certain illnesses which can now only be
cured by a miracle?
"If I think of cancer, I know that man is hard
at work to find a cure. This is the prediction and hope of everyone
working in that field. However they have not yet found a cure. And should
a medical cure be found there will still be other incurable
Finally doctor, do you
consider that personal faith in Jesus Christ is of importance to science?
"Very important!! You know that science has
gone out on a limb in believing that man is descended from apes. Science
is still trying to find the missing link!! The friction between faith and
science is that when man comes to faith he can no longer accept such
theories as that of evolution.

engaged in the pursuit of scientific knowledge."
