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.


Prayer, Importance of prevailing prayers. The Call to prayer - repentance & faith. Bible message, articles on prayer by Pastor Max Solbrekken. How to pray effectively, how to have communication with God through prayer. The power of prayer.The Importance of
PREVAILING PRAYERS

by: Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

Jesus said, "When ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do; for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking." (Matthew 6:7)

"I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go."  - Abraham Lincoln

WHY ARE PREVAILING PRAYERS SO IMPORTANT?

Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit is indeed willing, but the flesh is weak." (Matthew 26:41)

"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; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." (Matthew 7:7-8)  "Pray without ceasing." (1 Thessalonians 5:17))

People have many questions regarding prayer, and many find it hard to pray, not knowing what to say, and feeling unsure if their prayers are being heard, or even matter!  You may be someone with questions about prayer.  In the following article I will try to answer these questions by turning to the Bible scriptures for answers.

Prevailing prayers, The importance of prayers, importance of prevailing prayers. Learn to pray, learn what prayer is and how prayer can change lives. Importance of prayer Bible scriptures, prayer articlesDOES PRAYER REALLY WORK - OR IS IT ONLY AN ESCAPE FROM STRESS OR FEAR ?

Could prayer just be the consoling of a wounded spirit or a guilty conscience?

You may ask, "Does prayer really work, or is it only an escape from stress, fear or inner turmoil"? Or perhaps you may feel that prayer is only a safety valve from anxiety and danger? 

Prayer, Importance of prevailing prayers. The Call to prayer - repentance & faith. Bible message, articles on prayer by Pastor Max Solbrekken. How to pray effectively, how to have communication with God through prayer. The power of prayer.WHAT EXACTLY IS PRAYER?

You may wonder what exactly is prayer?  Is prayer just a formality, a tradition, a memorized group of words that we automatically repeat when praying?

 Is prayer actually the communication between the supplicant and Almighty God?  Or is prayer only an inner quieting of the human spirit, a tonic of the soul?

DO YOU HAVE TO SPEND TIME IN PRAYER TO BE A CHRISTIAN?

Is prayer a prerequisite to healthy Christian living or is it just a ploy of entrapment by Ministers of the Gospel or Roman priests, in order to gain and keep church members in line?

Is prayer a waste of time? The importance of prayers, importance of prevailing prayers. Learn to pray, learn what prayer is and how prayer can change lives. Importance of prayer Bible scriptures, prayer articlesIS PRAYER A WASTE OF TIME ?

You may say that you have prayed and prayed and God didn't answer your prayers, so you gave up praying.

Is prayer just a waste of time, like some think or say,  or is prayer a valuable tool in the Christian's arsenal against sin, fear, sickness and the devil?

IS PRAYER ONLY A RITUAL THAT WE DO BY TRADITION OR HABIT ?

Many people pray as a ritual or habit, but are they just saying the words they are taught and memorized, or are they actually praying and communing with the LORD.  When you pray, are you meeting with God, our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ our Lord?

In this treatise, I will endeavor to shatter all the humanistic assumptions of modernist theologians as well as atheists and cultists! I will share a number of concrete evidences from personal experience, as well as from the Holy Scriptures, to prove that "God is a Spirit and those who worship Him must do so in Spirit and in truth." (John 4:23-4)

I will also prove to you, through the Holy Scriptures of the Bible that God is a loving Heavenly Father, Who desires to fellowship with us and wants to have communion with His children.

My friend, if you will open your heart to accept the Word of God as the absolute and final truth, you will experience the reality of His presence and power at work in your life! And you will know of a truth that God hears and answers prayer.

MARTIN LUTHER WAS A MAN OF PRAYER

At his trial at the Diet in Worms, Germany, on April 18, 1521, Martin Luther - the Great Reformer - was asked: "Will you recant of your writings?"

He answered so eloquently: "Since Your Majesty and your lordships desire a simple reply, I will answer without horns and without teeth.  Unless I am convinced by Scripture and plain reason, I do not accept the authority of popes and councils, for they have contradicted each other - my conscience is captive to the Word of God.  I cannot and I will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe.  Here I stand, I cannot do otherwise.  God help me.  Amen."

As Martin Luther presented his case before the Emperor and the highest authorities of papist Rome , I hereby present my case for the reality of God, the need for prayer and the overwhelming evidence that the Almighty does hear and answer our petitions and supplications, when we call upon Him in sincerity and faith.

The Church of Scotland's Westminster Confession states: "Prayer is an offering up of our desires unto God for things agreeable to His will, in the name of Christ, with confession of our sins and thankful acknowledgment of His mercies."

God's Word says, "And it shall come to pass that, before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear." (Isaiah 65:24). 

The Psalmist prayed: "Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my Strength and my Redeemer.  Thou hast heard the desire of the humble."  (Psalms 19:14 :10:17 )

USE NOT VAIN REPETITIONS, AS THE HEATHEN DO

Jesus said: "When ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do; for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking." (Matthew 6:7)

Martin Luther's Small Catechism states: "Prayer is an act of worship wherein we bring our petitions before God with our hearts and lips and offer up praise and thanksgiving to Him."

PRAYER IS A LIFTING UP OF THE SOUL TO ALMIGHTY GOD

King David referred to true prayer as the "lifting up" of the soul to Almighty God: "Unto Thee Lord, do I lift up my soul. (Psalms 25:1) That speaks of an intense desire to fellowship with our Heavenly Father, similar to the flower turning its face toward the sun to receive warmth and sustenance.

Prayer is much more than just asking the Almighty LORD for His blessings or for intervention during trying, dangerous or impossible situations.  

Prayer is a holy conversation with GodPrayer is a a divine meeting and a time of intimacy with the One who is Lord over life and death, time and eternity! Prayer is a loving relationship and communion with our Heavenly Father, wherein we can bathe in His presence and extol and worship our precious Lord and Saviour.

AS WELL AS THANKSGIVING TO GOD

Genuine prayer involves a time of thanksgiving, worship and praise to the LORD, as well as definite supplications or calling upon the Lord for His mercy, grace and blessing! Prayer is essentially, entering the Holy of Holies in the very presence of God and worshipping Him in Spirit and in truth.

SATAN TREMBLES WHEN WE PRAY

It has been said: "Satan laughs at our toiling, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray!"  The book 'The Kneeling Christian' gives this poignant and powerful assessment of the importance of prayer.

THERE IS NOTHING THE DEVIL DREADS AS MUCH AS PRAYER

"Fellow Christians, let us awake!  The devil is blinding our eyes.  He is endeavoring to prevent us from facing this question of prayer.  Do we realize that there is nothing the devil dreads so much as prayer?  His great concern is to keep us from praying.  He loves to see us 'up to our eyes" in work - provided we do not pray.  He does not fear because we are eager and earnest Bible students - provided we are little in prayer."

'THE KNEELING CHRISTIAN'

When my sister Astrid passed away in 1987, the above mentioned book fell into my hands. She had purchased it from the Hull Publishing Company in Winnipeg many years earlier, and knowing what a consistent and ardent Christian she had been since 'Day One' in her life, I greatly treasured it. It wasn't until I read 'The Kneeling Christian' in the Norwegian language, however, that I began to fully understood its great spiritual worth.

Written many years ago by a Minister of the Gospel in Great Britainthe author refused to reveal his identity, using the pseudonym 'An unknown Christian', this book has a powerful appeal to those who love Jesus Christ and are sold out to His cause. Here is another excerpt from his writing:

WE CAN ACCOMPLISH FAR MORE BY OUR PRAYERS THAN BY OUR WORK

"Let us never forget that the greatest thing we can do for God or for man is to pray.  For, we can accomplish far more by our prayers than by our work.  Prayer is omnipotent; it can do anything that God can do!  When we pray, God works.  

All fruitfulness in service is the outcome of prayer - of the worker's prayers, or of those who are holding up holy hands on his knees on his behalf.  We all know how to pray, but perhaps many of us need to cry as the disciples did of old:  "LORD, teach us to pray."

MARTIN LUTHER declared: 'If I don't spend at least three hours in prayer daily, I would never get my work done.  If I should neglect prayer but a single day, I should lose a great deal of the fire of faith."

A.J. GORDON stated: "You can do more than pray, after you have prayed, but you can never do more than pray until you have prayed."

RICHARD BAXTER was a mighty 'man of prayer'. He stated: "I seek to preach as a dying man to dying men." He delivered every message "as though it were the last message" he would ever preach.

JOHN WESLEY - founder of the Methodist Church stated: "Give me 100 preachers who fear nothing but sin, and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or laymen; such alone will shake the gates of hell and set up the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.  God does not but in answer to prayer."

Interestingly, history credits John Wesley and the Methodist Revival that swept Great Britain , for saving England from the similar fate of the French Revolution.

GEORGE WHITEFIELD, a contemporary of Wesley's wrote: "Whole days and weeks have I spent prostrate on the ground in silent and vocal prayer."

DR. A.J GORDON wrote concerning David Brainerd: "In the depths of those forests alone, he was unable to speak the language of the Indians, but he spent whole days literally in prayer, that the power of the Holy Ghost would come upon him so unmistakably that these people should not be able to stand before him.  Once he preached through a drunken interpreter, a man so intoxicated that he could hardly stand up, yet scores were converted through that sermon."

DAVID BRAINARD wrote:  "I cared not where or how I lived or the hardships I went through, so that I could but gain souls for Christ.  When I was asleep I dreamed of these things.  When I was awake, the first thing I thought of was this great work.  All my desire was for the conversion of the heathen and all my hope was in God."

Toward the end of his life, John Wesley wrote a letter to all his pastors and workers urging them all to read the 'Life of David Brainerd.'

DR. A.C. DIXON  wrote: "William Carey read 'Life of David Brainerd', and he was so moved that he went to India.  Henry Martyn read 'Life of David Brainerd', and by its impulse, he went to India.  Payson read it, as a young man of 20 years, and he said he had never been so impressed by anything in his life as by that story.  Murray McCheney read it and was powerfully impressed by it.

It was Robert Murray McCheney who stated: "A holy Minister is an awful weapon in the hands of God."

 WHY IS PRAYER NECESSARY ?
 WE HAVE AN INNATE DESIRE TO COMMUNE WITH GOD

1.  Because we are spiritual beings with an innate desire to communicate with our Heavenly Father and Creator.  We were created in the image of God and there is therefore a natural pull heavenward! Although Adam's fall greatly marred this process, through Jesus Christ''s death on the cross for us all, believers are reinstated and again bear the image of our Father and God!

WE HAVE A DEEP NEED OF DAILY CLEANSING FROM SIN

2.  Because of the deep need of daily cleansing from sin, having been reconciled to our Heavenly Father through the shed blood of Jesus Christ our LORD.

And the blessed assurance that this relationship will continue throughout our lives and into eternity! Prayer keeps our relationship current, so that doubts and fears do not enter our hearts.

3.  Because of the many and varied problems, crises, tragedies and human needs that we cannot personally solve, which involve ourselves, our families and society in general

DURING PRAYER WE CALL UPON THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN HELP US AND GUIDE US

Prayer calls upon the only ONE who can make the necessary modifications to solve those problems and give us proper directions and guidance.

4.  Because of God's generous offer to us - through the vicarious death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ - of full salvation which includes divine healing, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and eternity with Him forevermore.  

Through prayer, we take advantage of His bountiful provisions for us, thereby allowing the Holy Spirit to pray through us "with groanings that cannot be uttered." (Romans 8:28)

PRAYER FULFILLS OUR SPIRITUAL HUNGER THROUGH PRAISE & WORSHIP

5.  Because of a spiritual hunger and longing to be in His presence - through worship, praise and thanksgiving - we are drawn by the Holy Spirit into the very Holy of Holies, the very presence of our Heavenly Father through the Blood of Jesus Christ that was shed for us on Calvary's cross.

'Dear Heavenly Father, bless all who read these lines.  In Jesus'' precious name, I pray, Amen.'


Healing for the sick, healing bible articles, healing scripturesHEALING FOR THE SICK 
Through Faith In Jesus Christ

"...man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward." (Job 5:7)

"Many are the afflictions of the righteous; but the Lord delivereth him out of them all." (Psalms. 34:19)

"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)

"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)

THERE IS HOPE FOR YOU - THERE IS HEALING FOR YOU - 
GOD WILL ANSWER YOUR PRAYERS

Multitudes 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!

Some 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.

Possibly 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.

You feel like throwing up your hands in despair since nothing helps, and accept weakness, pain, sickness and distress as your lot in life!

MY 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!

The 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.

Man's 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!

GOD 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.

"By 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 health.

WHEN 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.

The 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!

St. 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)

Is 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.

In 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."

The 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 deliverance!

"ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO HIM THAT BELIEVETH"

The 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!

THE BIBLE STATES THAT JESUS CAME TO BRING LIFE!

"The 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)

Jesus 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 prison.

The 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!

JESUS 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.

We know that Jesus is the truth, the life and the way (John 14:6). The Word of God is pure, divine and infallible!

JESUS 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.

HOW COULD THE DEVIL, WHO IS COMPLETELY EVIL, BRING FORTH SOMETHING THAT IS GOOD?

Jesus 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'!

"How 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." (Acts 10:38)

The 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;

IT MAY APPEAR THAT WITCH DOCTORS AND OCCULTS MAY HEAL OR CURE BUT BE NOT DECEIVED

Oh 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.

The 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.

#1 - 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!

#2 - When it comes to creating life, the magicians could not create lice out of dust as Moses did in the Name of the Lord.

The magicians said to Pharaoh, "This is the finger of God". (Exodus 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 it!

There 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 respecter of persons!

No. 1 - WORSHIP JESUS CHRIST!

There 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!

Focus your attention on Jesus. Worship, praise and magnify His Name and His love, forgiveness and healing will automatically flow into you!

"And, 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)

PEOPLE WHO SEEK ONLY A HEALING, MIRACLE OR ANSWERS TO PRAYER  WITHOUT WORSHIPPING GOD - WILL BE GREATLY DISAPPOINTED

By 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.

ALWAYS 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 LORD!

Jarius 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.

While 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.

"And, 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 that hour."

"And 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)

CANAANITE WOMAN WORSHIPS JESUS!

"And, 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, help me."

But 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. 15:22-28)

The 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." (Matthew  28:9)

GOD HEARS THE PRAYERS AND ANSWERS THE PRAYERS OF THOSE WHO WORSHIP HIM

Without 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!

The 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."

"And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped Him". (John 9:35-38)

To 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)

No. 2 - HUMBLE YOURSELF!

Pride 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 dogs.

And 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)

Here 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!

ANOTHER GOOD EXAMPLE OF HOW GOD REWARDS HUMILITY IS FOUND IN THE HEALING ACCOUNT OF NAAMAN

"So 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.

But 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.

And 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?"

"Then 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)

Many 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!

WE RECEIVE HEALING FROM GOD BECAUSE OF HIS GRACE AND MERCY AND BECAUSE OF HIS WORD - NOT BECAUSE WE DESERVE IT - HEALING IS A GIFT

It 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!

We 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 to us!

No. 3 - BELIEVE IN GOD'S INTEGRITY, ABILITY AND WILLINGNESS 
TO KEEP HIS PROMISES TO US

Believe 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 (John 1:1-4).

THE HOLY SCRIPTURES ARE GOD'S WORD!

The 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 return void.

"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)

God 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!

Jesus 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)

The 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."

Then Jesus touched their eyes saying, "According to your faith be it unto you", and they were instantly healed!

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

"Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me: or else believe Me for the very works' sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father.

And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it." (John 14:11-14)

No. 4 - TAKE GOD AT HIS WORD!

The 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)

Jesus 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)

"When the even was come, they brought unto Him many that were possessed with devils: and He cast out the spirits with His word, and HEALED ALL THAT WERE SICK: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses." (Matthew  8:16-17)

Seven hundred years before His birth in Bethlehem, the Holy Spirit promised divine healing through the Coming Messiah!

"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." (Isaiah 53:5)

Here 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 Peter 2:24)

There are three very important spiritual laws which Jesus Christ gave His Church:

Prevailing prayers, The importance of prayers, importance of prevailing prayers. Learn to pray, learn what prayer is and how prayer can change lives. Importance of prayer Bible scriptures, prayer articlesThe Law of Binding & Loosing

These three laws, when acted upon in faith, bring divine healing and total deliverance to those who call upon the Lord in sincerity and trust!

"Verily 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.

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

"For where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them." (Matthew  18:18-20)

For a full treatment of this subject, write for booklet on "The Laws of God & Divine Healing"!

No. 5 - RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR HEALER

Confess to the Lord that you Believe His Word and that you Know He is your Healer!

Concur 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'.

Then, 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.

The Bible says, "Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass". (Psalm 37:5)

Jesus 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 prayers.

YOU 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

Jesus said, "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)

DOES GOD ANSWER PRAYERS?

We can come to God in prayer anytime, anywhere, and we can expect to receive an answer from God.

God's Word says, "Call unto Me, and i will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."  (Jeremiah 33:3)

The Bible is the authoritative, divinely inspired and perfect WORD OF GOD!  God's signature is on the original autographs, written by holy men as they were inspired by the Holy Spirit.

St. Peter emphasized, "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation."

"For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man; but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost."  (2 Peter 1:20-21)

MARTIN LUTHER DID NOT SEE A BIBLE UNTIL HE WAS OVER 20 YEARS OF AGE

Martin Luther had not seen a Bible until he was more than 20 years old and his colleague Dr. Carlstadt had received his doctorate in theology from a prestigious Roman Catholic Seminary without ever reading the Bible!

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH REFUSED CHRISTIAN LAYMAN TO STUDY AND READ THE HOLY SCRIPTURES FOR 100's OF YEARS

For hundreds of years the Roman Catholic Church refused Christian laymen the right to read and study the Holy Scriptures. They claimed that it was too deep. "Only an educated priest or theologian could understand God's Word", they pontificated! This of course, was a trick of the devil!

THIS WAS A TRICK OF THE DEVIL - SATAN KNOWS THE POWER OF GOD'S WORD

Satan knows how powerful God's Word is and so was using this deceptive tactic to keep people in bondage. Jesus said, "Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:32)

No wonder Martin Luther stated, "The papacy is a general chase (hunting expedition) in which the Bishop of Rome is seeking to capture and bring to hell as many unsuspecting people as he can."

Sadly, Roman Catholic Theologians put their own private interpretation on God's Word, as do The Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses and other religious cults today.

When St. Peter said, "No prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation...."  What did he mean?

St. Paul was simply saying:: God interprets the Scripture, Himself.

The message God wants you to receive is not what a certain sect or denomination reads into the scripture, but what He (God) is communicating!

HOW DOES GOD INTERPRET THE SCRIPTURES ?

God interpret the scriptures by using other scriptures which the Holy Spirit has anointed!  Scripture interprets scripture and God does not contradict His Word. When taken in context, you will find that there are NO contradictions in The Holy Bible!

The Holy Spirit and the Word of God agree totally, for the Holy Spirit anointed holy men to write the scripture, and God has no mental block or speech impediment!

The power of prayer.GOD SAID WHAT HE MEANT AND MEANT WHAT HE SAID - God honours His Word today with all power and authority.

Jesus Christ Himself is the Living Word of God while the Holy canon of scripture, the Bible, is the written Word of God. Therefore, if you will believe the Word of God and appropriate it for yourself, Jesus Christ will come out of the pages of this holy book and come into your heart. This offer from Christ is open to every person in the entire world, regardless of age, race or color.  This offer is worldwide and has no strings attached.

St. Paul said, "For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar..." (Romans 3:3-4)

There are more than 33,000 promises of blessings in the Bible and they all have to do with God's dealings with mankind! His promises are not for angelic beings, but for lost, sinful, sick and fallen man.  His promises are for you and me!

1)  CHRIST'S INVITATION IS GENUINE

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

The most beautiful word in any language is 'Come'. This is a word of invitation and when Jesus calls, we must always be ready to answer His call!

CHRIST SAID "COME UNTO ME" - HE IS INVITING YOU TO COME TO HIM IN PRAYER

He said, "Come unto Me". He is the only one with solutions to our problems and answers to our questions!  How do we  come unto God?  The only way we can respond to His invitation of  "Come Unto Me", in through Prayer.  Prayer is our direct communication with God.

PRAYER IS OUR DIRECT COMMUNICATION WITH THE ALMIGHTY GOD

While on a visit to the USA some years ago, the then Soviet Union's communist president Mikhail Gorbachev stated, "Only Jesus Christ had the solutions to every problem. I don't possess that skill."

When asked by US reporters, the reason for glasnost, perestroika and the new freedom of religion which was happening in his country, Gorbachev replied: "JESUS CHRIST"!

As startled reporters asked him to repeat his answer, he stated without hesitation: "JESUS CHRIST". Then, as if realizing what he had just said, Gorbachev quickly changed the subject.

GORBACHEV STATED: "ONLY JESUS CHRIST HAS THE SOLUTION TO EVERY PROBLEM"

Christ's invitation is to "all who labour and are heavy laden", and that takes us all in. Gorbachev was right: Only Jesus Christ has the solution to every problem!

In The Bible, which is the Word of God, our LORD promises rest and peace to all the world, to anyone who responds to His Invitation.  We all need a new meeting with Jesus.  No one in this world is exempt from the cares, burdens, frustrations, temptations, pressures, sicknesses and other pitfalls of Satan. These are all of the world and of the flesh.  But God promises that prayer can change all this.

WE ALL FACE TRIALS & TEMPTATIONS

We are all constantly facing testing, temptations and trials in various forms and fashions.  The ability to pay our debts - due to unemployment, unreasonable taxation or sickness - are some of the biggest stress producers in this generation.

OUR FAITH IS SORELY TRIED AS WE DEAL WITH THE PROBLEMS OF LIFE 

The problems of life can test our faith as we deal with things like family break-up among children, grandchildren, relatives and friends. But Christ Jesus has promised us total victory, a release from tension and an abiding peace as we look to Him alone and keep our trust in His Word.

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

If you will notice, Christ  didn't say Come to a certain religious body or embrace a certain philosophy, ideology or theology...but He said, "Come unto Me", and every person in this world is included in this offer.

Jesus didn't mention His mother Mary or His inner circle disciples Peter, James or John or His half-brother James who became the first authority as Pastor of the world's first Pentecostal Church (the church was born on the day of Pentecost and exhibited supernatural signs and wonders) in Jerusalem!

CHRIST DIDN'T TELL US TO GO TO A HIGH PRIEST, RABBI OR PASTOR - HE SAID, "COME UNTO ME"

JESUS CHRIST didn't say come to the prophet, the apostle, the high priest or the rabbi, pastor,  or evangelist.  He said, "Come unto Me"!

You will not find a single account in the Bible, of Jesus Christ ever turning anyone away.  Jesus met the needs of every person who asked Him for help.

What a reassuring feeling it is to know that Jesus Christ honours His Word.  When you are in need or a miracle healing or are in danger and must have an answer to your prayers, you can depend on the LORD Jesus Christ.  He has given us the Invitation, "Come Unto Me", it  is up to us to respond to His invitation, through prayer.

Why is prayer so important? Prayer is how we communicate with God.  Articles messages on prayer, the power of prayerMY OWN TESTIMONY OF GOD ANSWERING PRAYER

I can verify that God is a "God at hand and not a God afar off". (Jeremiah 23:23)  I can confirm that God answers prayer, through my own personal testimony.

In 1984, my team and I were conducting a crusade in Northern India, when a staggering miracle occurred.  I had planned to have a very large crusade in the South, where nearly all visiting evangelists go.

Previously I had been in the South and Central parts of India, but had not ventured into the North where the zealous, devout and often fanatical Brahmin Hindus have almost total power.  In fact, for the previous twenty years, the number of Christians had declined there each year!

Thousands of pastors were ready to embrace our ministry in the South, and we were expecting 100,000 persons on the opening night, with prospects of larger crowds as the crusade progressed.  And I was excited about going!

GOD CHANGED MY PLANS TO GO TO NORTH INDIA

Then God changed my plans and I was challenged to go to North India, to a very intellectual city of Brahmin Hindus and Moslems.

The Hindus had just completed a ten day revival, in preparation for our coming..iin order to rejuvenate the people in their beliefs. This was also done to warn the people of the gospel!

On the first night of our crusade, 1/4 million Moslems were in the streets in a gigantic parade, to start 21 days of fasting in a celebration called Ramadan!

We started with 3,000 people on the opening night, backed by two Methodist churches and about 120 zealous young people, from across Asia, working with a group called "Christ is the Answer".

MY MESSAGE WAS TITLED, "JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND FOREVER"

My message was entitled, "Jesus Christ the same Yesterday, Today and Forever"! I declared the gospel of Christ according to St. Peter: "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)

I PRESENTED THE CLAIMS OF CHRIST, "I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE"

Without fear of contradiction I presented the claims of Christ where He stated: "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me". (John 14:6) "I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." (John 10:9-10)

I quoted St. Paul: "For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour: Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time."  (1 Timothy 2:3-6)

I declared that Jesus Christ was the only begotten Son of God - that He was born of a virgin, His sinless less, His miracle ministry, His victorious death and His glorious resurrection.

LESS THAN 100 PEOPLE CAME FORWARD TO ACCEPT SALVATION

Less than 100 came forward for salvation in the first service, but God performed several miracles of healing in answer to my prayer!

THE NEXT EVENING I CHOSE TO PREACH THE MESSAGE "THE UNKNOWN GOD"

The next evening there were 6,000 in attendance. Again I shared the Word of God. I chose for my text Acts 17:18-32 where St. Paul preached his famous Mars Hill message, "The Unknown God".

I SAID, "I SAW YOUR IMAGES, IDOLS & GODS MADE OF WOOD & STONE - THEY ARE DEAD AND LIFELESS"

I said, "I entered your city last evening and beheld your temples and places of worship - I saw your images, idols and gods! Idols that are made of wood, stone, plaster of paris and plastic; gods that have eyes that see not, ears that hear not, mouths that cannot speak, hands that have never helped anyone and feet that are stationary"!

I continued, "They are dead and lifeless, and so ignorant that if I were to slap their faces, they wouldn't have enough sense to move out of the way or say ouch."

I THEN PRESENTED JESUS CHRIST, THE ONLY TRUE SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD

Then I presented Jesus Christ, the only true Saviour of the world and the Son of the Living God.

At precisely 9:00 PM as I was making the altar call, suddenly loud speakers began blaring out an opposing message - in the Hindi language - in the very same venue which we were using!

THE HINDU RELIGIOUS LEADERS WANTED TO STOP THE WORD OF GOD BEING TOLD AND KILL ME, IF NECESSARY

Hindu religious leaders had called a meeting and decided to conduct another 10 day revival of their own, in the same park we had permission to use.

They had already alerted the police that there would be a riot on the crusade grounds and 50 fanatics with stones & sticks were on their way to start an uproar, stop the crusade and kill me, if necessary!

On those same grounds, two years previously, the Moslems had started a riot in a Christian crusade, in order to stop the meetings. Moslem fanatics had overturned a bus with 17 men, women and children, poured gasoline on it, setting it ablaze and killing them all!  Of course, everyone fled and the crusade was history!

More than thirty years earlier, a well known American evangelist was conducting a successful crusade in North India. Fanatics began a riot and he had to leave.

The Indian government then declared him non-grata-persona, effectively barring him from the country since his crusades were dangerous and prone to violence and riots.  In this manner the bigots had stopped one of the world's greatest soul winners from preaching in that nation for more than 3 decades!

THE FANATICS WANTED ME STOPPED FROM PREACHING THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST, BUT GOD INTERVENED 

Just as the fanatics were entering the grounds, I was making the altar call. More than 500 people were so gripped by the message and by the Holy Spirit, that they rushed forward to accept Christ.

Answers to prayer, God guarantees to answer your prayers, The power of prayer, Does God answer prayers?I PRAYED A POWERFUL PRAYER, REBUKING THE DEVIL AND CALLING UPON GOD

Then as I prayed a powerful prayer, rebuking the devil and calling upon God - in Jesus' Name - for miracles among the people, a 6 year old boy who was lame in one leg from birth was instantly healed!

His parents who were Brahmin Hindus rushed forward to testify, along with their healed son.  Upon hearing the commotion and the testimony, the fanatics asked, "Who is that man? Is he a prophet?"  Those around them in the crowd said, "Yes, he is a prophet from Canada".

THEY THEN DROPPED THEIR STONES AND STICKS SAYING, "WE'LL GIVE HIM ANOTHER DAY", AND PULLED DOWN THEIR LOUD SPEAKERS.

THE NEXT EVENING I PREACHED ON "GOD'S LOVE AND THE BLOOD OF JESUS"

The next evening the crowd grew to 10,000 and I preached on "God's Love and the Blood of Jesus"!  The fanatics who had previously wanted to hurt me, now wanted to kiss my feet... And the revival continued with the crowd growing to approximately 40,000 persons.

And according to the last reports we have had, the Christian community was not only strengthened but also is growing! Thousands enrolled in the New Converts Class, by mail. And hundreds took special courses for Christian Ministry! To God be the glory!

At the time of this writing (December, 1992), we have just heard the sad news that another well known American evangelist has very recently been banned from India for the same reason. Hindu fanatics took over his crusade declaring that he was fabricating lying testimonies of people who claimed to be healed!

WE CAN COME TO GOD ANYTIME, ANYWHERE AND EXPECT TO RECEIVE AN ANSWER

God's Word says, "Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."  (Jeremiah 33:3)

GOD'S WORD SAYS, "CALL UNTO ME, AND I WILL ANSWER THEE...AND SHOW YOU GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS"

All of us have times of difficulty and trouble, and God is more willing to give than we are to ask.  In fact, Jesus said, "Hitherto have ye asked nothing in My name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full." (John 16:24)

GOD'S INVITATION IS "COME UNTO ME" AND "CALL UPON HIS NAME"

We are invited to call upon Him in the day of trouble and He will deliver us and show us His mighty arm outstretched, in signs, wonders and miracles!

All we must do is call, and He will answer! It is humbling for us to acknowledge our weakness and need for help. It is humbling for us to request assistance from an outside force in this proud, efficient and materialistic world, in which we live.

Why is prayer so important? Prayer is how we communicate with God.  Articles messages on prayer, the power of prayerIF WE WANT ANSWERS TO PRAYER, WE MUST CALL UPON GOD

Jesus said, "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)

Again our Lord stated, "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)

Jesus invited, "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)

WE MUST SPEND TIME IN PRAYER AND LEARN TO PRAY - WE MUST ASK GOD FOR FORGIVENESS OF SINS

The simplest thing in the world for anyone to do is to ask for something. And yet, it can be the most difficult! We must spend time in prayer, learn to pray.

But Jesus made it so easy! He said, we must become like little children and ask with child-like faith and expectation.  And His promise is sure and guaranteed to work. He will keep His Word!

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

Again He stated, "Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain:"

"That whatsoever ye ask of the Father in My name, He may give it you." (John 15:16)

WITHOUT CHRIST, WE ARE HOPELESS LOST AND WE ARE POWERLESS AGAINST SATAN

We must remember Who our Source is. Jesus Christ is our Redeemer and the Holy Spirit gives us the power to function by His grace. And the Word of God is Supreme, that God may be all in all!

Jesus promised, "But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you and ye shall be witnesses unto Me..." (Acts 1:8)  Again our Master stated, "Without Me, ye can do nothing"! (John 15:5)

And our Lord said, "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. I will be with you until the end of the world." (Hebrews 13:5)

2)  PRAYER REQUESTS SHOULD BE SPECIFIC AND WELL NEEDED - WE MUST ASK IN FAITH

When we approach God's Throne of Grace, we must ask specifically for what we need or desire! We must be specific so that we can prioritize our request and focus on our needs, or the needs of others all over the world.  Prayer requests should be specific and well needed.

It is important to lay out our needs in a definite request, believing that He hears us and will keep His promise!

FAITH IS EXPECTING AN ANSWER WHEN YOU PRAY - FAITH IS TRUSTING GOD

Faith is expecting an answer when you pray. Faith is trusting God so implicitly, that when you have met the conditions He has set forth in His GREAT DOCUMENT, the Bible, He will respond favorably!

The Bible says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1)

Here is Moffat's translation of this verse:

FAITH MEANS WE ARE CONFIDENT OF WHAT WE HOPE FOR

"Faith means we are confident of what we hope for; convinced of what we do not see."

Faith is like the title deed to a property you own but have never seen. You know it is yours because it has been bequeathed to you in a will or it has been given to you as a gift - possibly in another part of the world, and you still haven't received it or seen it.

That is how faith works. You have God's promises regarding prayer and His desire to answer, but the things you prayed for haven't happened yet!

YOU MUST KEEP TRUSTING, BELIEVING AND EXPECTING THE ANSWER WILL COME

Keep on trusting, expecting and believing and the answer will come. Loved ones will come to Christ, sicknesses will he healed by God's power and your many prayer requests will be answered when you pray in the Name of Jesus!

The Bible says, "Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass." (Psalms 37:5) Jesus showed us how faith works in Mark 11:22-24:

"And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them."

In my opinion, Hebrews 11:1 is a theologian's definition of faith. The layman's definition of faith is found in verse 6.

"But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him." (Hebrews 1:6)

WHAT IS FAITH?  FAITH IS 3 VITAL THINGS:

Faith is coming to God with your needs and making your requests known to Him.

By asking God for help you are exhibiting faith! This proves that you believe He is greater than yourself and your need!

You are in fact saying: "Lord you are bigger than I am and more powerful and that is why I am approaching you for help"!

You wouldn't come to God for help if you didn't believe He could help you!

FAITH IS BELIEVING THAT GOD EXISTS

Faith is believing that God is real, that He is eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit! And that He is omnipotent, omnipresent and eternal!

FAITH IS BELIEVING THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD

Faith is believing that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He died on the cross for our sins and arose from the dead for our justification.

FAITH IS BELIEVING IN THE GOD OF THE BIBLE

The Bible says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."  (Hebrews 11:1) Faith is a reality!

Faith is a fact and also action, because "faith without works is dead, being alone."  (James 2:26) Faith is now! And faith is a present day reality and faith gets the job done - Faith Works Miracles!

FAITH IS BELIEVING AND EXPECTING

Faith is expecting a miracle when we pray!  Here is our Lord's invitation to you:  "Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28)


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?

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.


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 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.
