through the
BLOOD OF 
JESUS CHRIST

by: Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

"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)

HOW TO RECEIVED HEALING THROUGH THE BLOOD OF CHRIST

"If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes." (Mark 9:23)    - JESUS CHRIST

The ancient prophet Isaiah set forth a graphic picture of the coming Jewish Messiah in the 53rd chapter of the book we call "The Gospel of the Old Testament."

We can receive total healing through the wounds of Jesus Christ - According to the prophets, the Messiah would suffer, bleed and die for His people. He would be cut off in death, but rise again in power.  He would be wounded, bruised, chastised and striped in order to purchase our salvation and bring deliverance from sin, sickness and eternal death.

And St. Peter records the glorious results of Christ's terrible sufferings as our substitute. "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)

does God still heal, how can I be healed? Is healing for everyone, How to receive healing through Blood of Jesus Christ. God's laws on Divine healing, faith works miraclesTHE SEVEN WOUNDS OF JESUS SPELL COMPLETE REDEMPTION

Jesus Christ received seven specific wounds in His body during His week of suffering and death. The number seven in biblical terms speaks of perfection and completeness.

Wounds according to the dictionary are divisions of the soft part of the body by a mechanical force applied externally. They are classified as: contused, lacerated, penetrating, perforating and incised! Jesus Christ received each of these plus an additional two, by mutilation and falling.

Healing, How to receive healing, there is healing through the blood of Jesus Christ. Bible articles on divine healing, Bible scriptures on miracles, healing, faith, Jesus Christ is the healer1) THE CONTUSED WOUND  - produced by a sharp instrument.

"They shall smite the Judge of Israel with a rod upon the cheek." (Micah 5:1)

St. Matthew wrote, "They smote Him with rods." (Matthew 26:67; John 18:22) (Newberry & Revised) "Then they did spit in His face and buffeted Him, and others smote Him with the palms of their hands." (Matthew 26:67)

Very definitely, Jesus suffered pain and humiliation as Roman soldiers beat Him about the face with their rods!

Others, including the servants smote Him with their hands. The rod would cut into the flesh, leaving a contused wound.

how can I be healed? How to receive healing through Blood of Jesus Christ. God's laws on Divine healing,Is healing for everyone, does God still heal,  faith works miracles2) THE LACERATED WOUND  - produced by a tearing instrument.

The Romans used the cruel cat-of-nine tails to scourge criminals. On the end of the whip were nine pieces of leather to which were attached sharp ivory or metal balls with protruding nails. As the whip was cracked, it would tear out pieces of the flesh.

Jewish law demanded that not more than 40 lashes be administered, since often the victim would faint or even die during the scourging.

The Romans did not need to adhere to Jewish law. As a matter of fact, crucifixion was a Roman mode of execution! The Romans always scourged a condemned man before crucifying him.

Some historians and Church Fathers believe that Jesus Christ may have received many more than 30 stripes.  The more punishment a prisoner took on the whipping pole, the shorter was the guard duty for the Roman Soldiers at the scene of execution.

Since the Jewish leadership had accused Him of perverting the people, the Romans certainly had no reason to "go easy" on Him! And no doubt the tough Roman soldiers would have been happy to see Jesus squirm and cry out - especially since he had refused to talk to the Governor!

We do know that St. Paul was whipped by the Jews on five separate occasions: "Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one." (2 Corinthians 13:24)  Paul was not a candidate for crucifixion, by the Romans. He was prosecuted under the jurisdiction of the Jewish hierarchy.

If Jesus received 39 stripes in Pilate's Judgment Hall, that would have inflicted a total of 351 gashes on His lacerated back. If He received more than 39 stripes, the gashes would have been more numerous.

EACH WOUND HELPED TO PURCHASE OUR HEALING: SPIRITUAL, MENTAL AND PHYSICAL

The Old Testament prophet declared, "The ploughers ploughed upon My back. They made long furrows." (Psalms 129:3) Seven hundred and fifty years earlier, Isaiah had prophesied concerning the Messiah, "I gave My back to the smiters" (Isaiah  50:6)

"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)

St. Matthew records, "Then Pilate therefore took Jesus and scourged Him." (Matthew 27:20; John 19:1)

Prisoners who were scourged usually lost a lot of blood and sometimes fainted. Jesus suffered the agonizing and brutal scourging for us!

God's laws on Divine healing,Is healing for everyone,how can I be healed?  does God still heal,  faith works miracles3) THE PENETRATING WOUND: a deep wound caused by a sharp, pointed instrument.

The crown of thorns that was pressed upon the head of Jesus caused such wounds. The Jerusalem thorn, known as the Arabian Nebulae, was 4 inches long and as sharp as a needle.  The cruel diadem containing over 100 spiculets, was driven into His head with blows from the rod.

The Bible scriptures record, "And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon His head, and a reed in His right hand: and they bowed the knee before Him, and mocked Him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews." (Matthew 27:29)

"Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!" (John 19:5)

It was the Governor's intention to scourge Jesus and then release him.  He had hoped the pitiful sight of a weary, weak and bloodies man would satisfy their blood lust and evoke sympathy for the prisoner.

Instead of being satisfied, they craved more blood, crying out "Away with Him, crucify Him, crucify Him!" (Matthew 27:22-23)

THORNS SPEAK OF THE ORIGINAL CURSE

Thorns speak of the original curse, "Cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;"   "Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth unto thee..." (Geneses 3:17-18)

JESUS TOOK THE CURSE FOR US

Jesus Christ  bore the penalty for our sins, transgressions, sicknesses, diseases and pains!

St. Paul writes, "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree."

"That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith." (Galatians 3:13-14)

In the book of Deuteronomy, Chapter 28, Moses enumerates the blessings of keeping covenant with God. He also lists the curses! The curses include sickness, disease, insanity, torments, plagues, pestilence, famine and war. The Apostle to the Gentiles states unequivocally that, "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law." So we are free!

The Roman soldiers tried to drive Jesus insane by beating that crown of sharp Arabian Nebulae into His head. But He didn't lose His sanity but rather through this horrible experience purchased our peace and tranquility.

And having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself." (Colossians 1:20)

Because of the penetrating wounds He bore for us, WE HAVE PEACE!

Is healing for everyone, does God still heal, how can I be healed? God's laws on Divine healing message4) THE PERFORATING WOUND:  From the Latin word; "to pierce through"

A Messianic psalm stated, "They pierced My hands and My feet" (Psalms 22:16) At the time of David's prophecy, he knew nothing of crucifixion, for the Hebrew method of capitol punishment was stoning!

The prophet Zechariah also foretold of the Messiah's death by crucifixion. "And one shall say unto Him, What are these wounds in Thine hands? Then shall He answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of My friends." (Zechariah 13:6)

By the time Jesus was born, the Romans had conquered Palestine and crucifixion had become the mode of execution. The New Testament records: "And when they were come... to Calvary, there they crucified Jesus."  (Luke 23:33; John 19:16-18)

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)

Jesus Christ suffered the torments, agony, pain and death of the most horrible of all deaths - The Death of Crucifixion! He suffered for us. He bled for us. He died for us! And He arose again from the dead, for us!

5) THE INCISED WOUND: a cut produced by a sharp edged instrument:

"But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced His side, and forthwith came there out blood and water." (John 19:34)

As the Sabbath was approaching the soldiers helped speed up the expiration of the victims by smashing their thigh bones, thus allowing asphyxiation. When the Roman soldier came to Jesus, he noticed that He was already dead. The soldier then went on to the thief on Jesus' other side and with his large axe, smashed the femur bone (thigh bone) causing a quicker death.

In order to verify Jesus' death, the soldier then plunged his spear into the left side of Jesus!

This fulfilled the scripture, "They shall look upon Him Whom they have pierced." (Zechariah 12:10) So large was the wound that after the resurrection, Thomas "the doubter" was invited to thrust his hand into that wound.

"Then saith He to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold My hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into My side: and be not faithless, but believing."  (John 20:27)

St. John was standing near the cross and noticed blood and water coming out of His side.  The pericardium is a closed sac encasing the heart, lubricated by a small amount of fluid to facilitate the motion of the heart.

Mallory & Wright's pathological technique answers the question, "How could John have seen such a small amount of water flow out of the wound? The normal amount (of pericardial fluid) is about a teaspoon, but it may be increased to 100 c.c. (24 teaspoonfuls) where death agony is prolonged."

Another miracle was that contrary to nature, blood flowed from a dead man, proving that the blood of Jesus did not die but is efficacious even today !

There is a fountain filled with blood, Drawn from Emmanuel's veins,
And sinners plunge beneath the flood, Lose all their guilty stains."

The blood and water which St. John saw coming out of the side of Christ may also have been the physiological aspect of death.

Medical science teaches that, "Blood in a cadaver readily separates into clear serum and red blood cells, thus certifying that the person is clinically dead." It could be that both of these things were happening at once. Either way, it proves that the death of Jesus was a reality and that there is life through His precious blood!

The Bible says, "Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins." (Leviticus 17:11,14)

"It is the blood that maketh atonement for the soul." (Hebrews 9:22) "And the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanseth us from all sins." (1 John 1:7)

The blood of Jesus Christ, shed for us all on Golgotha, has purchased our salvation

,how can I be healed?  does God still heal, How to receive healing through Blood of Jesus Christ. God's laws on Divine healing,Is healing for everyone, faith works miracles6) WOUNDS BY MUTILATION  - the plucking out of His beard.

"I gave My cheeks to them that plucked out the hair." (Isaiah 50:6)

Not only did they slap and spit upon His face but they yanked out His beard causing the wounds of mutilation. Can you imagine the awful pain, as cruel Roman soldiers pulled out His beard! The blood flowed down upon Christ's chest as cruel tormentors mutilated His face by tearing out handfuls of His beard.

He did it for us, because by "His Sore" (original Hebrew) we are healed! He was "one sore" from head to toe, by the time He had undergone the full mistreatment which the Roman soldiers heaped upon Him! He suffered more than any man and He did it all for us - to purchase our salvation.

God's laws on Divine healing,Is healing for everyone,,how can I be healed?  does God still heal, How to receive healing through Blood of Jesus Christ, faith works miracles7) WOUNDS BY FALLING:

They laid the rugged cross upon His lacerated, bleeding back and forced Jesus to carry His own cross, as was the custom for condemned criminals. Due to loss of blood because of the scourging, He was unable to do so.

As He stumbled and fell, His body received more bruises and sores, and He suffered more pain, for us.

Historians claim, that after His striping in Pilate's Judgment Hall, Jesus was subjected to a heavy wooden cross laid upon His raw, bleeding back.

Apparently, the cross bar was tied to His wrists and the stock to His left ankle. When He stumbled and fell, He had no way to protect Himself, so His body was further bruised and battered! And Roman soldiers then forced a stranger, Simon of Cyrene to bear His cross up Calvary's hill.

"And He bearing His cross went forth to the place of a skull..." (John 19:17) "And as they led Him away they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus." (Luke 23:26) (Mark 15:21)

Apparently that event caused such an impact upon the Cyrenian that he became a convert to Christ. And it appears that his two sons also entered the Ministry and preached the gospel of Christ after His resurrection.

CHRIST WAS WOUNDED FROM HEAD TO FOOT WITH SEVEN WOUNDS IN ORDER TO BRING US HEALING

And St. Matthew stated, "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 Easias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses." (Matthew 8:16-17)

"It is no wonder, St. Thomas, upon his encounter with the risen Christ declared, "My Lord and my God." (Jn.20:28)

MAY THE RISEN CHRIST BLESS AND HEAL YOU AS YOU APPROPRIATE HIS PROMISES FOR YOURSELF.

I pray you will receive total healing through the wounds and blood that Jesus Christ shed for you.


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:

Healing articles and teaching on healing. How to receive healing through Blood of Jesus Christ. Is healing for everyone, does God still heal,The Law of Binding & Loosing
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 Agreement
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 God's Presence

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)

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

Give God all the glory. Share with others what God has done so that you may rejoice together and glorify the Name of Jesus. Remember, Jesus said in Mark 9:23 - "ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO HIM THAT BELIEVETH".

Allow me now to offer a prayer to God on your behalf.

Kind Heavenly Father, I pray in Jesus' Name that you will extend Your hand of mercy, forgiveness and divine healing right now to each and everyone who is reading this booklet.

Upon the authority of God's Word, by the blood of the everlasting covenant, through the eternal Spirit of God and in Jesus' all powerful Name, I command Satan to take his hands off each one reading this booklet now!

Every evil spirit of torment, infirmity and unrighteousness must leave NOW, in Jesus' Name.

Heavenly Father, please lay your healing hand on the sick, infirm and sinful right now and save, heal and deliver them all.

THANK YOU LORD. I BELIEVE IT IS DONE AND I PRAISE YOU IN JESUS' HOLY & PRECIOUS NAME.   Amen.

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)

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

"And him that cometh unto Me, I shall in no wise cast out." (John 6:37)

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!

How to pray effectively, how to have communication with God through prayer. 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.

 Prayer is how we communicate with God.  Articles messages on prayer, the power of prayer.  Why is prayer so important?To ask God for divine healing, we must admit that we are sick and that we need help!

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)


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


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

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

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

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

HOW CAN I BE SAVED?

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

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

JESUS CHRIST CAME INTO THE WORLD ON A HOLY MISSION !

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Bible says: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life". (John 3:16)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name." (John 1:12)

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

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