was healed of weeping eczema
LOOKED AT ME WITH PITY IN THEIR EYES
over 30 years I had suffered with skin problems called weeping eczema, but
approximately 4 years ago in 1971, I was completely healed by the Lord
Jesus Christ in answer to believing prayer as the evangelist from Canada,
Max Solbrekken prayed for me.
HAD WEEPING ECZEMA OVER MY ENTIRE BODY
last 7 years that I suffered were the worst. I had weeping eczema
over my entire body. For over 30 years I had it on parts of my body,
but for the last 7 years it covered my entire body.
PART OF MY BODY HAD WEEPING ECZEMA - IT WAS HELL ON EARTH
was not a part of my body that did not have the horrible disease. For the
last years of the seven, it was almost like hell on earth. The depressing
part of course, was that the doctors told me there was no cure.
it would get so bad they would put me in the hospital to try to help me.
Can you imagine how it would be to have your body covered with raw broken
skin that sometimes would even bleed.
eczema looks and feels horrible. Almost everyone in Lestock,
Saskatchewan knew me. The doctors, nurses, pharmacists, people in the
grocery store and hundreds of people who attended the Max Solbrekken
crusade know about the stunning miracle I received from God.
COMPLETELY HEALED MW WITH HIS WONDERFUL MIRACLE POWER AND THE WEEPING
ECZEMA IS GONE
years ago, Jesus reached forth His wonderful hand and laid it upon me. I
will thank God constantly for this miracle, for His servant Max Solbrekken,
and for our faithful minister Rev. J. Reid of Fort Qu'Appelle,
Saskatchewan who used to pick me up and bring me to the service.

grandchildren that I look after. I wash my own dishes, do the housework,
cook and stand over a hot stove and it doesn't hurt me.
see for years I could not put my hands in water to wash the dishes. I
couldn’t stand beside a stove or sink because hot water from the sink or
heat from the stove would really hurt me as I had only a thin layer of
skin and it was always red and parched with scales.
I can do everything: I can bake, cook, make meals, the hot sun doesn’t
bother me, water doesn't bother me. The eczema is completely gone and not
even a trace of it has come back.
skin is absolutely free from even a spot or a scale. I am made perfectly
whole by Jesus Christ. Four years of joy, peace, health and strength, with
no sign of weeping eczema.
God, and expect it will stay this way until Jesus comes in the clouds to
take me home.

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
have personally led several people who were ill to the through inner
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.
in Jesus Christ is of the utmost importance for all, including those
engaged in the pursuit of scientific knowledge."
