The End times - Understanding the times and what to do. Pastor Max Solbrekken teaching, preaching, prayer requests and spiritual guidance. When God Came Down
by: Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

In this little message, I would like to share with you some wonderful truths about the birth of our Saviour, including the reason and results of His coming and what this marvelous event means to us today.  I have entitled this message, "WHEN GOD CAME DOWN" - For truly it was a day in which God did come down upon the earth to redeem mankind.

The Bible declares that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (Romans 1:3-4), that He who knew no sin became sin for us (2 Corinthians 5:21) and that He who was rich became poor, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. (2 Cor. 8:9).  Zacharias prophesied: "Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for He hath visited and redeemed His people". (Luke 1:68)

And what a visit and redemption that was: God's Son paying the sin debt that was against us, through His vicarious death for the entire race. John the Baptist would prepare the way for the Redeemer, who would shatter the darkness of sin, sickness, disease, fear and demon influence and bring peace to the earth. (Romans 3:23-26)

"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 we were healed. For we were as sheep going astray: but are now returned  unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls." (1 Peter 2: 24, 25)

"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)

LAMB SLAIN BEFORE WORLD'S CREATION

Before the foundation of the world, God prepared His Salvation to redeem mankind from the snare of Satan. Jesus was the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. (Revelation 5:6).  The Redemption Plan was mapped out and decided upon even then.  Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was to be God's paschal Lamb, the burden-bearer, deliverer and Redeemer of lost humanity.

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). God gave His Son to die for us all and Jesus was willing to go.  God had prepared the 'Royal Visitation of Redemption'and when sin, hopelessness  and  spiritual darkness covered the earth, Jesus of Nazareth was born in Bethlehem.

God spread a ray of Heavenly Light into the world to bless humanity, destroy the power of Satan and to liberate mankind!  Satan's plan for domination of man was thwarted, upset and nullified because God shed His love and Grace toward His creation: "For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of ourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)

"But when the fulness of time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons." (Galatians  4:4-5).

PROPHETS FORETOLD MESSIAH'S COMING

For 4,000 years the prophets had been read to the people of God, declaring that God Almighty had promised a Messiah to deliver them.  No doubt every young Jewish girl secretly hoped that she would be the one that would be favoured by God to bear the Christ child, because the Scriptures stated: "Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign, Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call His name Emmanuel." (Isaiah  7:14)

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given and the Government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6);

"But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall He come forth unto thee that is to be ruler in Israel, whose goings forth have been from old, from everlasting." (Micah 5:2; Matthew 1:23)

"And in the sixth month, the Angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin's name was Mary.  And the angel came in unto her, and said Hail thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee, blessed are thou among women.

And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.  And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found favour with God.  And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

And He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest, and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David.  And he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His Kingdom there shall be no end." (Luke 1:26-38)

MARY WAS A VIRGIN!

"Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as His mother Mary was espoused to Joseph before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her   husband being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.

But while he thought on those things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call Him JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins." (Matthew 1:20, 21)

"Then said Mary, How shall this be since I know not a man?  And the angel answered and said unto her, the Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee, therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." (Luke 1:34, 35)

MARY NEEDED A PERSONAL SAVIOUR!

1. Mary received Jesus Christ as her Saviour: "My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour." (Luke 1:46, 47). This godly virgin recognized that she was a vessel that God would use to bring His Son into the world, through the process of incarnation, so He would  continue to be sinless. She confessed God's Son as her Lord and Saviour!

It was not difficult for her to confess Jesus Christ as her Lord and Saviour, because she had been informed by Gabriel of the eternal plan of God for Him. Here is her reaction to Gabriel's message: "And Mary said, Behold the handmaiden of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her." (Luke 1: 38)

It is important understand that Mary is NOT  the Mother of  God. She was the mother of the infant Jesus and given the privilege of bearing the Christ Child. God doesn't have a Mother. To worship Mary is idolatry and blasphemy. Those who teach that Jesus is a  ''Co-redemptrix'' or ''Mediatrix' with Jesus, are enemies of the cross sent by Satan to deceive and destroy souls!

2.  Mary was filled with the Holy Ghost: "These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brethren. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them  utterance." (Acts 1:14; 2:4)

Mary was one of the 120 who sought God for ten days in dedication and prayer, and were filled with the blessed Holy Spirit on the Day of  Pentecost. And, yes, Mary spoke in tongues and glorified God through Jesus Christ our Lord!

3.  Joseph knew her not until after the birth of Jesus: "Then Joseph, being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had  bidden him, and took unto him his wife and knew her not til she brought forth her first born son, and he called His Name Jesus." (Matthew 1:24, 25)

Mary lived a normal married life after the birth of Jesus and had several children by her husband Joseph.

4.  Mary had children by Joseph: "Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us? And they were offended at Him. Then one said unto Him, Behold, Thy mother and Thy brethren stand without, desiring to talk with Thee. But He answered  and said unto him that told Him, Who is My mother? And who are My brethren?

And He stretched forth His had hand toward His disciples, and said, Behold My mother and My brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of My Father, the same shall be My brother, and sister and mother." (Matthew 2:47-50)

5.  Jesus gave His mother away: As the eldest child in the family, it was His duty  to look after His  mother before His death. Since He was going to Heaven to sit on His Father's right hand, He no longer needed an earthly mother, so He officially gave His mother to John.

"Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus  therefore saw His mother, and the disciple standing by, whom He loved, He saith unto His mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith He to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple (John) took her unto his own house." (John 19: 25-27)

JESUS' BIRTH WAS SUPERNATURAL:

1. Jesus of Nazareth had a Miracle Birth:

He was born of a virgin, conceived by the Holy Ghost - humanly impossible but quite easy for God - because He is a Miracle God:

"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. And the Word was MADE flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." (John 1:1,2,14)

2.  The Bible is a Miracle Book:

"As for God, His way is perfect: the Word of the Lord is tried: He is a buckler to all those that trust in Him." (Psalms 18:30); "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My Words shall not pass always." (Matthew 24:35)

"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);

"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine for reproof, for correction in righteousness." (2 Corinthians 3:16)

3. We are Born Again by the Word of God  and the Holy Spirit:

"Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto Him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb and be born?  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit;  Marvel not that I said unto thee, ye must be born again." (John 3:3-7)

"Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth forever. But the Word of the Lord abideth forever. And this is the Word which by the Gospel is preached unto you." (1 Peter 1:23,25)

4. We are Redeemed by a miracle of God:

"Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things such as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and spot:

Who was verily foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you." (1 Peter1:18-20); "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)

5. We are Baptized with the Holy Spirit:

We experience a Miracle when JESUS baptizes and fills us with the Holy Spirit of God. Our Heavenly Father fills us with Himself. He takes total control and speaks through us with new tongues giving glory, honour and praise unto Jesus Christ the Liberator of humanity and the Saviour of the world!

The prophet Isaiah foretold this great experience seven hundred and fifty years before it happened on the Day of Pentecost about 33 A .D. in an Upper Room in Jerusalem: "For with stammering lips and another tongue will He speak unto this people.  To whom He said, This is the rest whereby ye may cause the weary to rest and this the refreshing: yet they would not hear." (Isaiah 28:11,12)

"In the last day that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink. He that believeth on Me, as Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water." (John 7: 37, 38)

The Bible states: "For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but  be filled with the Spirit." (Eph. 5:9,18)

6. Miracles of healing emanate from God and are still happening:

God is a Miracle God and we are His people.  Our God has not changed His Word and will always keep His Word  as promised. The Holy Bible is filled with testimonies of His goodness and grace. There are many who have been healed by God's power and experienced a Miracle.

"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)

"And these Signs shall follow them that believe: In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpent; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay their hands upon the sick, and thy shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, He was received up int Heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the Word with signs following. Amen." (Mark 16:17-20).

To God be the Glory: I can testify for His Names' sake that I have seen hundreds of such great miracles through many years of preaching His Gospel! Hallelujah to the Lamb forever and ever!

7. Our walk is a walk of faith:

All who believe that He is Alive, know His ability to keep us from all evil and  constantly burning with the Holy Spirit's fire and doing exploits for Him by the power of His Name! There is nothing that can stop the Army of God marching in lockstep, destroying Satan's works and freeing his captives!

"And He said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from Heaven. Behold, I  give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you." (Luke 10:19); 

"We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not, but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him NOT. And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness." (1 John 5: 18,19)

He has given us 'The Great Commission' a living, binding document, entailing our job description: Where we are to go? What are we to do? When are we to do it? How are we to do it? Why are to do it? We are to take His Gospel into all the world. We are to preach His Word  and minister in the power of His Spirit employing His gifts of Power to bring forgiveness, healing and  much blessing to all. Duty calls we Must Answer!

We must do it now because the Hour is late and Christ will soon Return. And  the enemy is working at top speed knowing that his time is short! He is a defeated foe and is employing millions of 'enemies of the Cross' but his death knell sounded when Jesus Christ cried, "It Is Finished". The word He spoke out was in Greek - Tetelestai - with three essential meanings: To finish something, bring something to an end; to fulfill something; to pay that which is owed!

Jesus Christ had finished His redemptive work. He had brought to an end Satan's power over mankind. He had fulfilled the Old Testaments Scriptures concerning the Jewish Messiah and He had paid the price in full for our salvation, forgiveness, healing and deliverance. We are now free for time and for eternity!

Everything about our Saviour was miraculous because He was still in the bosom of the Father. He  humbled Himself when left the Throne of Glory to be incarnated, God in human flesh so that He could atone for the sins of the world, past, present and future. He was God in human flesh, but He laid aside His Godhood so that He could be true God and True man His virgin birth!

Because He was sinless, death could not hold Him in Hades. He said, I lay down My life and I will take it again. No man could take it from Him, He voluntarily laid it down. When the time came to arise from the death, He simply rose from the dead. He freely gave it for mankind's salvation.  And He is alive forever more!

His life was a continuous miracle. He healed the sick, raised the dead, multiplied loaves and fishes, walked on the water, forgave sinners. (John 10:17-18).  His resurrection was a miracle (Acts 1:9). And when He returns in the clouds to receive us to Himself, it will be another miracle. (1 Thessalonians 4:16).  He is our Miracle God and we are His Miracle people, living by faith in the finished work of Calvary, found in His Holy and Divine Word!

THE ANGEL VISITS JOSEPH:

"Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise, when as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.  Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost." (Matthew 1:20); "Behold a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." (Matthew 1:23)

When Joseph realized his wife-to-be was expecting a child, he was shocked and suspected, of course, unfaithfulness to purity and chastity from Mary, but as he thought along these lines, the Angel of God came unto him and revealed God's Divine Plan for the child which was to be born.

JESUS IS THE ONLY SAVIOUR:

Jesus Christ is the Only Saviour of the world.  No one else can save you from your sins. Buddha, Muhammed, Confucius, the Pope, were born as humans and have died as humans but Jesus Christ was born as Saviour and died as Saviour and when He arose, that crowned the Event of events, as He was declared to be the Son of God with power through the Resurrection (Romans 1:4).

Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life."  (John 14:6)  "I am the door, by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved." (John 10:9)  No one else can forgive sins but Jesus - The blood of Jesus Christ, God's Son, cleanses us from sin (1 John 1:7).  "Then said one unto Him, Lord, are there few that be saved?  And He said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate, for many I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able." (Luke 13:23-24)

"There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the Kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out." (Luke 13:28)  "There is no other name under Heaven given among men whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)  His Name is WONDERFUL - (Isaiah 9:6) Emmanuel, God with us, Wonderful, Counsellor, Prince of Peace, Mighty God.

JESUS WAS BORN KING:

As the wise men entered Jerusalem, they asked "Where is He that is born King - we have seen His star in the East and are come to worship Him."  (Matthew 2:1-2)  When Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth was born, she was born a Princess and became Queen.

Nearly every reigning Monarch has been born as a Prince and then become King years later but when Jesus was born, He was not born as a Prince - He was born King and he is still King today, greater than the kings of the earth and of His Kingdom there shall be no end. (Isaiah 9:7)

In Acts 17:7 Paul and Silas were preaching, the multitudes came together and charged Jason saying, These men preach that there is another King, one Jesus.  Paul preached it, that Jesus Christ is King.

He is the King of kings and Lord of lords.  Thomas, that man of doubt and unbelief, when He saw Jesus he fell down and cried out "My Lord and My God".  He wants to be your Saviour but also your Lord and Master and King - Supreme in your life.

In Rev. 19:11-16 we see Jesus riding on a white horse.  He is going out to destroy the Anti-Christ with the breath of His mouth.  On His thigh and vesture, which has been dipped in blood, a Name is written "The King of kings and Lord of lords".  Won't you let Him come in and be the ruler and King in your life?

Wise men today also seek for Jesus!  "Ye shall seek for me and find me when ye search for me with all your heart." (Jeremiah 29:13)  "The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God." (Psalms 14:1)  The Wise Men worshipped Him (Jesus), not His mother. (Matthew 2:11)

THE ANGEL'S VISIT TO THE SHEPHERDS:

How surprised and fearful the shepherds were when all of a sudden the Glory of God filled the hillside and the glory of the Lord shone round about them as the Angel of the Lord came upon them.  As they fell to the earth, the Angel said,

"Fear thou not, for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.  (Luke 2:8-18)

And this shall be a sign unto you, ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.  Many have wondered why God would send Angels to the shepherds.  It was because David was the shepherd king and Jesus Christ was born of the lineage of David and so the poor shepherds were the first to be told.  When someone has a baby, they quickly send their neighbours and friends announcement cards - but when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, God the Father sent Angels down to herald the birth of the Saviour.

And when the shepherds had found the Messiah as told by the angels, they went everywhere telling people about this wonderful happening.  When the artist paints the picture of the Saviour and His mother, they usually depict a halo around their heads.  The Scripture doesn't mention any halo, however, but the Swaddling Clothes were given as a sign, in which the Christ Child was wrapped, and the Manger.

NO ROOM IN THE INN:

There was no room in the Inn.  Jesus Christ, God's Son was born in a Stable (barn) in Bethlehem.  I often wondered why He was born in a stable and then I realized that that is where lambs are born and Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world (John 1:29).  

Today many people have no room for Him in their lives.  They have no room for Him in their hearts.  They have excluded the Son of God from the throne of their souls.  They have been too busy to think about Christianity - about God and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.  Too busy with business, making money, along with the cares and pleasures of this world, with no time for Jesus.  

But Jesus stands and knocks at your heart's door - (Revelation 3:20), "Behold I stand at the door and knock, if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come into him, and will sup with him, and he with Me." 

Don't be so rude - He's been standing knocking on your heart's door for a long time.  Why don't you let Him come into your heart and set up His throne in your life.

HOW CAN WE BE BORN AGAIN?

What does Jesus' birth, death and resurrection mean to us today? And what do we have to do to receive the great blessings which His Redemptive work affords us: It means that God has given His best to bless humanity.  Jesus came to bring life, health and happiness.  He came to give peace and joy to those who would believe, here on this earth and Eternal Life for evermore. The Jewish nation rejected Him and turned Him over to the Roman Authorities for crucifixion.

Jesus of Nazareth died according to the plan and will of His Father, as God's Paschal Lamb bearing the sins of the  world, past, present and future. On the the third day He arose from the  dead, having met the righteous demands of divine justice in the Courts of Heaven, for the sins of mankind!

St. Peter stated: "And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the Name of the Lord shall be saved. Ye  men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did in the midst of you, as ye  yourselves also know:

Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death; because it was not possible that He should be holden of it." (Acts 2: 21-24)

1. ADMIT THAT YOU ARE A SINNER: "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 everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid upon Him the iniquity of us all." (Isaiah 23:6)

2. BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD: "“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 might be saved." (John 3:16,17);

“He that believeth  the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on Him." (John 3:36)

3. REPENT OF YOUR SINS: "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); "Then said Peter unto them, Repent , and be baptized every one of you in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." ( Acts 2:38)

4. RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOUR: "For this is the record that  God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He that hath the Son hath life: and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These have I written unto you that believe on the Name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." (1 John 5:11-13)

"Behold , I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come into him, and will sup with him and he with Me." (Revelation 3:20)

5. CONFESS HIM BEFORE MEN: "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thy heart that Gd 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)

CHRIST JESUS: THE GIFT OF GOD!

"For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that ye through His poverty might be rich." (2 Corinthians 8: 9); "Thanks be unto God for the unspeakable gift." (2 Corinthians 9: 25)

"In His great mercy and by His grace, God the Father of all mercies, has chosen the weak, base and foolish things of this world to confound the things that are mighty." (1 Corinthians 1:27). St. Paul wrote: "But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto wisdom, righteousness, and sanctification and redemption." (1 Corinthians 1:30)

Only by the grace of God have we been chosen to become partakers  of Christ's nature thereby making us  children of God, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ. In His great mercy, kindness and love, He has made us 'accepted in the Beloved'. Not  only has He saved us from Satan's evil power and our own carnal and sinful ways, but He has given us through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, His  Wisdom, Righteousness, Sanctification and Redemption.

He has taken the foolish things of this world, like ourselves, and made us His very own sons.

We were redeemed  by His precious blood, from the curse of the Law, when Jesus became a curse for us. (Galatians 3:13)

WHY DID ALMIGHTY GOD DO THIS?

What was the purpose of Christ's Incarnation, miraculous Ministry, His meritorious, vicarious death on the CROSS, and His glorious resurrection from the dead? It was the out flowing of our Father's  great mercy, love, grace and goodness toward the Human race. His great heart of love planned and executed it all before the worlds were created. He would have a church, a people and family to love and cherish and to use as the expression of His mercy and grace!

Who can understand such love? No one is able to comprehend His greatness and the magnitude of His Grace. It is beyond our human power to assimilate or even imagine!

He wanted us! He called us! He forgave us! He saved us from our filthiness, pride and unrighteousness. He lifted us from the muck and mire, to sit with His Son Jesus Christ at His Heavenly Throne.

No wonder St. Paul says, "That no flesh should glory!" We have nothing to Gloat about. It was all His plan, His work and His goodness that gave us all this! Where would I be? Where would we all be without His MERCY? Lost in our sins, bound by chains of Lust, Greed and Pride - doomed forever in a lost eternity - filled with fear, agony and torment.

O' what a Saviour! O' what a Redeemer! O'' what a Blessedness, we have in Christ our Lord. To Him be all the honour, glory and praise forever and ever! Amen.


The End times - Understanding the times and what to do. Pastor Max Solbrekken teaching, preaching, prayer requests and spiritual guidance. END TIMES
UNDERSTANDING THE TIMES & 
WHAT TO DO 

by: Pastor Max Solbrekken

"And the children of Issachar, which were men who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment." (1 Chronicles 12:32)

WHERE ARE THE MEN AMONG US TODAY?

WHERE are the men among us today who understand the times and who know what we ought to do?  The ability to understand 'the times', is undoubtedly a rare ability.  And to know how to be proactive or reactive in each situation is equally important.  There is a natural ability which comes from genetic inheritance, experience or observation!

Spiritual gifts & understanding, understanding and discerning the times, and what to do by Pastor Max Solbrekken, God gives some believers the gift of the Word of Wisdom and the word of KnowledgeGOD HAS GIVEN TO HIS BODY, WHICH IS THE CHURCH, 
NINE SUPERNATURAL GIFTS

There is also the  spiritual gifting  which comes directly from the Holy Spirit!  God has given to His body, the Church, nine supernatural spiritual gifts which include the unique 'Gift of the word of knowledge' and the 'Gift of the word of wisdom'.

"For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit." (1 Corinthians 12:8)  The 'gift of the word of knowledge' is the supernatural ability to know things that are not naturally known and the  'gift of the word of wisdom' is the supernatural ability to know how to act or react to that knowledge!

God has so equipped His Church with these safeguards and tools to not only protect it but to thrust it forward in its task of building His Kingdom!  Whether the ability to "understand the times" and to "know what to do" come to us through natural ability or supernatural gifts is immaterial.  The important thing is that we are apprised of the situation, our eyes are wide open and our minds are alert to know, see and do the right things!

I pray for each one reading these lines that our dear Lord will grant unto all the ability to "know Him who to know is life eternal" and the desire to walk with Him in truth, sincerity and humility, trusting only in His merits for time and eternity!

And that we may understand the times and know what to do in order to keep our families safe from the filth and gutter slime so prevalent in our disintegrating society.  To keep our children safe from this corrupt, wicked and perverted world? (2 John 1:1-9)

AWAKE THOU THAT SLEEPEST!

The Bible admonishes: "Wherefore He saith, Awake thou that sleepest and arise from the dead and Christ shall give thee light.  See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise;

"Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but  UNDERSTANDING  what the will of God is.  And be not drunk with wine wherein in excess, but be filled with the Spirit." (Ephesians 5:14-18)

You may ask:  "Where are the Men?"  We have a real problem because we live in a society where many younger men have had no role model due to broken homes and absent Dads!  The rage these young men have developed, because of the ache in their hearts for a father, often surfaces against their wives and children!

And it is even worse in common-law arrangements, hopping from one relationship to another, leaving behind  bruised and hurting women and children, as well as  heart broken men!

Large numbers of families are hurting because of  stubborn foolish pride, self-centeredness, and demons of lust  let loose through immoral movies, alcohol, drug abuse and pornography!

I BLAME THE DEVIL!

I blame the Devil who has blinded the eyes of religious leaders who have been asleep at the switch and didn't see the approaching train filled with worldly pleasure, compromise and lethargy!  Some blame must also go to parents who have allowed their children to change the rules and call the shots!

St. Paul stated: "But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost.  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believed not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, Who is the image of God, should shine unto them." (2 Corinthians 4:3,4)

I blame our Politicians who have listened to the voices of the crowd crying: "Give us the Murdered Barabbas" and "Crucify Jesus the Christ: We won't have Him to rule over us." (Matthew 27:20-26)

Amazingly, politicians are often allowed to pass laws that are unhealthy, immoral and ungodly and believe that they can go scot-free, that there are no further consequences!

A good example of this is the 'same-sex marriage' or as it has been aptly called 'man-on-man' marriage, which our former corrupt Government pushed through against the wishes of the majority of Canadians.  Do they think that they had the last word on that?  Do they think that they can get away with it?

Well, they won't!  It will come back to bite them in this life and the next!  One day every lawmaker, politician and judge that has contributed to the breakdown of society, destruction of marriages through perverted laws, knowingly releasing pedophiles and murderers into society to molest rape and kill, will stand before the greatest Judge of all to hear His verdict.

God's Word states: "For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all  ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness." (Romans 1:18)

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

It means to suppress the truth and hide it from the people, to cover it up or water it down.  It means to lie about the truth and promote the very opposite.  It means to substitute another agenda that is carnal, fleshly and untruthful.

St. Paul warned: "Because that when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God....but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  Professing themselves to be wise,  they became fools.  Wherefore GOD GAVE THEM UP to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves.  Who changed the truth of God into a lie...

"For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature.  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural  use of the woman, burned in their lust, one toward another...

"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a REPROBATE MIND, to do those things which are not convenient." (Romans 1:21-28)

STRONG WARNING:  "Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge." (Hebrews 13:4)

The Bible warns perverts:  And Jesus called a  little child  unto Him and set him in the midst of them.  And said, "Verily I say unto you, except ye be converted and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck and he were drowned in the depth of the sea." (Matthew 18:2, 3, 6)

THE GREAT DAY OF JUDGMENT!

Every philosopher, theologian and preacher  who suppresses the truth and perverts the teachings of Jesus Christ will have to stand before the Eternal Judge on the 'Day of Judgment'.  Unbelievers will appear at the Great White Throne presided over by our Lord Jesus Christ:

"And I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the book were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

And the sea gave up the dead that were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them; and they were judged every man according to their works.  And death and Hell were cast into the lake of fire.  This is the second death.  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." (Revelation 20:11-15)

BELIEVERS AT  THE BEMA SEAT JUDGMENT

Believers in Christ will all appear at the  Bema Seat Judgment.  It is where followers of Jesus Christ will be judged for rewards or lack thereof depending on their works: Here are the words of Holy Scripture on this matter:

"Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of Him.    For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good of bad." (2 Corinthians 5:10)

The Bible commands believers to turn from sins that war against the soul and flee from the wrath to come, by abiding in Christ the sure rock of our salvation!  St. Paul admonishes the church thus: "If so be that ye have heard Him, and have been taught by Him, as the TRUTH is in Jesus:

That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and that ye put on the new man which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness."

"Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for ye are members one of another.  Neither give place to the devil." (Ephesians 4:21-27)

GIVING HEED TO GOD'S WORD!

"I beseech ye therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God,  that ye present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service;.  And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God." (Romans 12:1, 2)

"Wherefore, seeing we also are compassed with so great a cloud of witnesses,  let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which both so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.  Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith;

"Who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand at the throne of God." (Hebrews 12:1,2)

There are three things we must do: Consider Jesus: "Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest (Hebrews 3:1):  There is no-one like Him;  Saviour, Redeemer, Healer, Friend, God!  Look unto Jesus: "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the Cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of God (Hebrews 12:2):  Don't just look at Him but look unto Him for forgiveness, counsel, comfort and healing.  Go to Him with your needs and watch Him work in your life.

WE MUST FOLLOW JESUS!

We must Follow Jesus: "Let us go forth therefore unto Him without the camp, bearing His reproach.."(Hebrews 13:13).  Take up your cross and become His Disciple.  Serve Him and live for Him.  Look for His return! (Matthew 11:28)

You will then become like the Sons of Issachar who understood the times and knew what Israel had to do.

May God richly bless you as you draw near unto Him, for He has promised to draw near unto you! (James 4:8)  He will accept you when you call upon His name in sincerity and faith. (John 6:7)  Amen.

Gospel preaching, teaching,  end times Bible prophecy, Bible articles, sermons  by Pastor Max Solbrekken. Healing & miracle testimonies,A LEGENDARY EVANGELISTIC - Dr. Max Solbrekken

This week we have had the privilege of talking with a legendary evangelist Dr. Max Solbrekken.  He held a series of meetings for the whole week in one of our meeting halls in Hokksund, Norway, and has prayed for people to be healed and delivered.

Max is 79 years old, he looks healthy and strong and is still traveling all over the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ just a she has done it for the last 50 years.

We asked Max to tell us how he got saved.

"I was born in Canada from a Norwegian Parents who love the Lord and were Christians."  They were not Pentecostals and had never heard of the work of the Holy Spirit.  One time my dad got very sick, and his sickness was identified to be an illness in his gall bladder.  He was admitted in a hospital and was waiting for a surgery.  While he was there, he heard a voice speaking to him in Norwegian that said to him, "Go home and listen to Oral Roberts on the Radio."

My Dad did not know that God could speak to him in that way, but still he decided to obey the voice as it was very convincing.  While he listened to the radio program he was completely healed and some time later while he was praying alone he got baptized in the Spirit.

A REVIVAL
By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

The Bible clearly outlines the sins of Israel, which at one time held a special relationship with God. In this article I compare Israel's backsliding to the Church of Jesus Christ's seemingly constant drift from our amazing spiritual beginning until the present!

In the same manner, I parallel the Fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden from purity, honesty and worship of their Creator to the corrupt, jaded and perverted world system of today!

God's Word states: "Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people." (Proverbs 14:34 ); "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." (Psalms 33:12) 

According to these Scriptures, Canada is in a fallen state!

The Church is in desperate need of a genuine Holy Ghost, heaven-sent, apostolic revival of mammoth proportions! Without a visitation from God, the Church will not be able survive the awful onslaught of Satanic invention and intrigue!

The Evil One is working overtime to minimize, decimate and destroy the effectiveness of the Body of Christ around the world! He has employed many and varied agencies and emissaries to do his bidding ever since 'The Fall', which has caused great confusion and suffering to the Church.

The greatest problem suffered by the Body of Christ down though the centuries,  however, has been self - inflicted! Discord among brethren, jealousy, envy, backbiting, lust, greed, pride and control, have been some of the sins that have seriously hampered the sanctity and the growth of the Church!

Other major problems have been that of deception, laziness and indifference! Power hungry men have often been willing to compromise the Word of God, to maintain their position of prominence in society and authority in the Church.

What has been the result of these actions? A loss of real spiritual power, a vacuum of moral leadership in the Church and community, and a blurred   vision of the purpose and goals of  the Ministry. It has also generated a luke warmness toward the needs of the people, a lack of compassion to reach a lost world and a loss of  the Holy Spirit's fire in praise and worship.

Here are some key Scriptures that relate to our situation today and their ramifications as it applies to our individual lives and the Church body as a whole. In this message I seek to show the similarities that existed in various times in Israel's history of backsliding to what is happening in the Church presently.

1. NEHEMIAH 1:1-5

"The words of Nehemiah the son of Hach-a-liah. And it came to pass in the month Chisleu, in the twentieth year, as I was in the palace, That Ha-na-ni, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning Jerusalem. And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire.

"And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven,  And said, I beseech Thee, O' Lord God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love Him and observe His commandments."

It seems clear to me that the report given to Hezekiah about the awful condition of Jerusalem - the City of God - and the sad plight of the inhabitants therein, closely resemble the plight of the Christian Church in many parts of the world today.

Jesus said: "I will build My church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." (Matthew 16: 18). It is true that  Jesus is building His Church and it is also true that the gates of hell cannot and will not prevail against it. During the time of Christ, City Hall (as we call it), where plans of war were hammered out,  was directly behind the gate, and consequently was referred to as the Gates of the City!  The words, 'the gates of hell', refer to the opinions, plans,  strategy and agenda of Satan. They cannot succeed in the long term! They will be defeated.

Our Lord gave us the Great Commission, which stated in part: "Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe: In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay their hands on the sick and they shall recover." (Mark 16:15, 18)

Gospel preaching, teaching,  end times Bible prophecy, Bible articles, sermons  by Pastor Max Solbrekken. Healing & miracle testimonies,IS THE CHURCH A REPROACH TODAY?

We must ask ourselves the questions: "Are we fulfilling the Great Commission of our Lord, or are we just playing Church? Are we casting out devils, healing the sick, setting the captives free, and preaching the good news to those who haven't yet heard?

Even a casual reading of the Epistles teaches us how graciously, unselfishly and righteously God desires us to live, after receiving Jesus Christ as Lord. Do we love the Lord  with all our heart, soul and mind, and our neighbour as ourselves? Do we love others, as Christ loved us or do we hold onto grudges and un-forgiveness? It is difficult  to believe that we are not "missing the mark" in these areas.

The Lord's Prayer, which our Master taught His disciples to pray, states in part: "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." Have our lives helped to cause that to happen? Is His will being done in our earth (body) as well as on the earth? Are we a part of the solution or a part of the problem?

Hezekiah was confronted with a pitiful sight! The walls of Jerusalem were broken down and the gates had been burned with fire! And the remnant that were left in God's Holy City were in great affliction (poverty, despair, sickness) and reproach (persecuted, maligned, ridiculed). If we are honest with ourselves and God, we must admit that this is a picture of the Church world-wide.

Never before, has the Roman Catholic Church been so publicly disgraced and sued in the courts, because of the sick homosexual practices of their pervert pedophile priests! And when you see Protestant denominations in the Western World caving in to the demands of homosexuals and lesbians for ordination and same-sex marriages for their clergy, doesn't it make you sick?

The first time I saw two men kissing on TV, I felt nauseated!  What a reproach. What an unnatural, disgusting image for little children to absorb!

The disastrous fall into almost comatose formalism, and a rejection of the Virgin birth of Christ, the Born Again experience and the Doctrine of Hell of many Protestant Churches makes one wonder how bad it can get. The only answer is a red-hot, Holy Spirit led revival of righteousness.

2.  Joel  1:9-14,  Joel 2:15

"The field is wasted, the land mourneth; for the corn is wasted: the new wine is dried up, the oil languisheth. Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye wine dressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished.

"The vine is dried up, and the fig tree languisheth; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered:  because joy is withered away from the sons of men. Gird yourselves and lament ye priests: howl, ye ministers of the altar: come, lie all night in sackcloth, ye ministers of my God: for the meat offering and the drink offering is withholden from the house of your God.

"Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the Lord your God, and cry unto the Lord. Alas for the day! for the day of the Lord is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come."

I believe that there is a parallel  between the crises in the Church today, and the vision that the prophet Joel had of Israel facing the day of judgment, called in the Old testament, 'the Day of the Lord'! Using this Scripture as a pre-picture of the Church in the time of the end, allow me to share some pertinent and very important truths:

Why was Israel to asked to call a solemn assembly? Why must the priests lie all night in sackcloth, crying unto God? Why must all the inhabitants of the land fast, mourn, weep and repent? Judgment was coming! The terrible 'Day of the Lord' was about to take place, when the Almighty's wrath will fall upon the world at the very end of time.

Gospel preaching, teaching,  end times Bible prophecy, Bible articles, sermons  by Pastor Max Solbrekken. Healing & miracle testimonies,THE BIBLE ISSUES A WARNING!

St. Peter wrote about it with great solemnity and warning: "But the day of the Lord shall come as  a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness?

"Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless, according to His promise,  look for  new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness."

"Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of Him in peace, without spot, and blameless." (2 Peter 3: 10, 14). Why should we call a solemn assembly and sanctify a fast? Why should the Church spend much, much more time in prayer?  Here are three reasons:

1. WE HAVE LOST THE HARVEST -  VERSE 11

For the Church,  the harvest is the youth of our nation! Our young people who have drifted away from the faith of their fathers and mothers! Young people who smoke marijuana, fornicate, drink alcoholic beverages and gamble at the casinos and video lottery terminals! Young people who are carnally minded and live only for pleasure, instead of being consecrated and dedicated to God and His program.

2. WE HAVE LOST THE JOY - VERSE 12

The reason that there is so little joy in the hearts of Christians is because we have lost the harvest. It is because we are not winning souls to Christ! The Bible says: "They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him." (Psalm 126: 5, 6).

I have never met an unhappy soul winner! People who witness for Christ and are engaged in Church and Missionary work are the happiest people that I have been privileged to meet, because they are involved with eternal souls. A soul winner's joy is sweet and his reward is great.

The Bible says: "And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever." (Daniel 12: 2, 3)

3.  THERE IS NO MEAT & DRINK OFFERING - VERSE 13

The priests and their families lived off  some of the offerings that were brought to the temple. People had stopped bringing in their offerings, so therefore there was very little for the ministering priests to live on. How can the Church survive when people lose interest, backslide, stop paying their tithes?

How can the work of God grow if people stop serving Him, and discontinue giving missionary offerings? Only a revival, an awakening, a visitation from God Almighty will shake us into action, so that our hearts will be right with Him and open to the call of God upon our lives. Let us call a solemn assembly and get people involved in fasting and praying for a genuine revival from Heaven.

3. HABAKKUK 3: 1, 2

"A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet upon Shigionoth. O Lord, I have heard Thy speech, and was afraid: O Lord, revive Thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy."

This is one of the most powerful Scriptures in the Bible, to convince the Church to call upon God for mercy, forgiveness and help! The prophet had  apparently been in prayer and God had spoken to him.  Prayer is a two-way street. It is important to let God speak to us during our times of seeking Him!  What God told the prophet shook him to the core, and made him afraid.

What did God tell Habakkuk? It seems that God must have given him a message, that impending  judgment was about to fall. Gripped by a holy reverence andr godly fear, the prophet cried out: 

"Instead of judgment, send a revival.  Revive Thy work O Lord, in the midst of the years. Don't let your cup of judgment get filled up! Rather make yourself known unto us NOW by forgiving our sins and showing mercy. And if You must judge us, in Your great wrath remember to be merciful!

4. JEREMIAH 2: 13 ;  6: 16

"For My people have committed two evils; they have forsaken Me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water. Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein."

There are some sad stories in the Bible of hardhearted people who refused to turn to the Lord, even after He called them repeatedly!  Here He speaks to Jeremiah - the weeping prophet - about His feelings regarding Israel , His chosen people! He asks: "Hath a nation changed their gods, which are no gods? but My people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit." (v. 11).

He indicts Israel on two counts:  Forsaking Him, the fountain of living water and exchanging Him for counterfeits - broken cisterns which can hold no water.

Then, He challenges them to take a good hard look at all the alternatives: "Stand at the crossroads of life and have a good look at the alternatives. Then, return to the good ways and walk in them." What does He offer? Peace and rest for our souls! yet, there are many who enter the wide gate and take the  broad road which leads to death and destruction.

 Bible articles, sermons  by Pastor Max Solbrekken. Healing & miracle testimonies, how to be free of addictions, fear, anxiety, how can I be savedTHE BIBLE GIVES THE KEY TO REVIVAL

Here is the KEY to revival: "If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." (2 Chron. 7: 14).

There are four things that God's people must do in order for the Almighty to rend the heavens and come down in Revival Power in our midst!

First, we must humble ourselves, getting rid of the sin of pride. Second, we must begin to pray earnestly for His intervention. Third, we must seek His face in protracted times of intimate fellowship with our Heavenly Father! We must get close enough so that we can walk with Him like Enoch, Abraham and Moses! And Four, we must "lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily besets us" (Heb.12: 1, 2),  and turn from every wicked way.

5. MALACHI 1: 6 - 9; 3: 8 - 10

"A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a Father, where is Mine honour? and if I be a Master, where is My fear? saith the Lord of hosts unto you. O priests, that despise My name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised Thy name? Ye offer polluted bread upon Mine altar, and ye say, Wherein have we polluted Thee? In that ye say, The table of the Lord is contemptible.

"And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil" and if ye offer the lame and the blind, is it not evil? offer it now to thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the Lord of hosts. And now, I pray you, beseech God that He will be gracious unto us: this hath been by your means: will he regard your person saith the Lord of hosts.

God was displeased with the priests who were indifferent to their holy tasks in the temple. They were only going through the motions instead of  reverently ministering to the Lord! Are we also guilty of only going through the motions without real conviction and love for our Lord?

May God help us to give Him our very best, instead of the cull, the left - overs in our life. He is not content to play second fiddle or be the fifth wheel. He wants to be NUMBER ONE in our heart and life! Let us give Jesus Christ centre stage.

In verse 11 through 14, we read: "For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same MY name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense  shall be offered unto My name, and a pure offering: for My name shall be great among the heathen, saith the Lord of hosts."

What were they doing? They were offering animals that were blind and lame and sick unto the eternal God! He asks: "Should I accept this of your hand? saith the Lord. But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing: for I am a great King, saith the Lord of hosts, and My name is dreadful among the heathen."

A SIN AND A SHAME!

It is scandalous when you consider the very little we give to God and His cause in the so-called Christian nations, relative to what we spend on cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, pornography, gambling and amusement. It is a Sin and a Shame! We spend more money on chewing gum in our respective countries than we give to Almighty God. That has to change.

In Chapter 3, we read: "Will a man rob God? yet ye have robbed Me.  But ye say, Wherein have we robbed Thee. In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed Me, even this whole nation.

"Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in Mine house, and PROVE ME now herewith saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there will not be room enough to receive it.

And I will REBUKE THE DEVOURER for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts."

Upon the authority of God's Word, I declare that you will never sorry if you give God His share in tithes and offerings. He is no man's debtor and He will prosper and bless you as He has promised. His Word cannot fail and He will not fail you.

Isaiah's life was changed when he had a vision of God in the temple. He became one of the greatest Prophets of all times! He cried out: "Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither His ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear." (Isaiah 59: 1,2)

Here he gives us the key to forgiveness and peace: "Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near: 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: 6, 7)

6. REVELATION 3: 14 - 20

"And unto the angel of the church of the La-od-i-ce'ans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot; I would that thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of My mouth.

 "Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. I counsel thee to buy of Me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear, and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be  zealous therefore, and repent. 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."

The La-od-i-ce'an Church had drifted  so far from the truth that Jesus is standing on the outside seeking entrance to His OWN CHURCH. How very, very sad! He wants us to be red hot for Him and His Gospel. Please make room for Jesus Christ in your heart and life today! Only then, do we really begin living. In his great love and mercy, Jesus will wash away every sin and fill our hearts with contentment and contagious joy!

What a reproach in that Day, to be left on the outside, because you have left Him on the outside of your life! He urges, "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.

"To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, ans am set down with My Father in His throne." (Revelation 3: 20,21)

7. JONAH 1:1-6

"Arise, go to Ninevah, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before Me. But Jonah rose up to flee from the presence of the Lord; and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish; so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.

But the Lord sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest  in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken. Then the mariners were afraid, and cried every man unto his god, and cast forth the wares  that were in the ship into the sea, to lighten it of them.. But Jonah was gone down into the sides of the ship, and he lay, and was fast asleep.

So the shipmaster came to him, and said unto him. What meanest thou O sleeper? Arise, call upon thy God, if so be it that God will think upon us, that we perish not. And they said everyone to his fellow, Come, and let us cast  lots, that we may know for whose cause this evil is upon us. So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Jonah.

Then said they unto him, Tell us, we pray thee, for whose cause this evil is upon us; What is thine occupation? and whence comest thou? What is thy country? and of what people art thou?  And he said unto them, I am an Hebrew; and I fear the Lord, the God of Heaven, which hath made the sea and the dry land.

Then, were the men exceedingly afraid, and said unto him, Why hast thou done this? For the men knew that he had fled from the presence of God, because he had told them. Then said they unto him, what shall we do unto thee, that the sea may be calm unto us: for the sea wrought and was tempestuous unto them.

Then said he, Take me up, and cast me forth into the sea; so shall the sea be calm unto you: for I know that for my sake this great tempest is upon you. Nevertheless, the men rowed hard to bring it to land.; but they could not; for the sea wrought and was tempestuous unto against them.

Wherefore they cried unto the Lord, and said, we beseech Thee O Lord, we beseech Thee, let us not perish for this man's life, and lay not upon us innocent blood: for Thou  O Lord, hast done as it pleased Thee. So they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea, and the sea ceased from her raging.

Then the men feared exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice unto the Lord, and made vows. Now the Lord had prepared a GREAT FISH to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights."

What a wake-up call Jonah received from Almighty God and what tremendous measures He takes, so that a heathen city could hear God's voice and be saved. It was an unusual and awesome way to reach that entire city for Him.

WHEN GOD BECAME A MAN!

It pales, however, when one considers the Salvation plan that Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled through His Virgin birth, pure and righteous life, vicarious death and glorious resurrection. The Sovereignty of God demanded  punishment for sin and the CROSS provided the Final solution!

For a time, God overlooked or winked at our sins in His great mercy and kindness by allowing the sacrificing of innocent lambs, goats and bullocks (occasionally a red heifer) to suffice.

When the fullness of time had come, however, Almighty God our Heavenly Father, gave Himself in His Son to be the propitiation for our sins and those of the whole world. The word propitiation means the covering, satisfaction and the expiation. Jesus of Nazareth, true God from eternity and true man by His virgin birth, had to die so that He could cover us and remove our sins to SATISFY the Righteous Demands of Divine Justice.

While in the belly of the GREAT FISH, Jonah repented of his rebellion and disobedience. God forgave him and gave him another opportunity to reach the wicked city of Nineveh with God's message of repentance and judgment. Praise the Lord!

"And the Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry ground. And the Word of the Lord came unto Jonah the Second time, saying, Arise, go unto Nineveh that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee. So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the Word of the Lord. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days journey.

So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest one even to the least of them. For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes...

When God saw their works, that they turned from their Evil way; and God repented of the evil that He had said that He would do unto them, and He did did it not." (Job 2:10; Job 3:1-10)

The total repentance of the entire city of Nineveh moved Almighty God to change His mind about His judgment toward them. He freely forgave them all by extending His mercy toward them. Jonah's change of heart in obeying God's directive after a long and hard lesson, brought our Heavenly Father's great love into focus for all to see and experience.

Healing & miracle testimonies, how to be free of addictions, fear, anxiety,Bible articles, sermons  by Pastor Max Solbrekken.  how can I be savedTHESE ARE IMPORTANT LESSONS FOR US ALL!

There are a number of lessons for us to learn from this ancient happening: First, God loves the heathen and will use every possible means to rescue them. Secondly, the work of a true 'Man of God' isn't a soft touch. It may involve tough times and very hard work. The importance is to be obedient to the Holy Spirit and answer 'yes' when He calls!

My prayer is that everyone of us will be willing to carry the message of Christ's salvation to our relatives, friends, neighbours and others as often as possible whenever possible to as many as possible, for as long as possible!

WILLIAM BOOTH and his wife Catherine founded the Salvation Army in 1865.  They chose as their slogan, 'Blood and Fire', referring to Jesus Christ's BLOOD shed for the remission of sins and the Fire referring to the FIRE of the Holy Spirit.  He stated, "The tendency of fire is to go out; watch the fire on the altar of your heart.  Anyone who has tended a fireplace, knows that it needs to be stirred up occasionally.

In 1892, William Booth wrote the well-known hymn, 'SEND THE FIRE'It is filled with Gospel truth, Biblical Doctrine and Great Commission Admonition.  You can sense the presence of God by reading the words, and the Holy Spirit burns when it is sung.

There is no-one as unhappy as a person who has been called of God to preach Christ's Gospel, but has stifled that call. For some people it will be too late to answer that call, but for others the Holy Spirit may still be calling for you to do His bidding. May He help you to answer that call. Amen.

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.


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


What do I need to do to be saved? How can I be saved?  You must admit you are a sinnerWHAT MUST I DO TO 
BE SAVED?

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?  You must admit you are a sinner, You must believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, you must repent of your sins, you must receive Jesus Christ as  your saviour, you must confess Jesus Christ as your Lord.  1 - YOU MUST ADMIT THAT YOU ARE A SINNER

The Bible says, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God". (Rom. 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)

I have done terrible things. can Jesus still save me? Yes, Jesus can still save you. How can I be saved?  You must admit you are a sinner, You must believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, you must repent of your sins, you must receive Jesus Christ as  your saviour, you must confess Jesus Christ as your Lord.  2 - YOU MUST BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD

You MUST believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that Jesus died on the cross, was buried and rose again from the dead.

"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)

What do I need to do to be saved? You must admit you are a sinner, You must believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, you must repent of your sins, you must receive Jesus Christ as  your saviour, you must confess Jesus Christ as your Lord.  3 - YOU MUST REPENT OF YOUR SINS

The Bible says, "except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." (Lu.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)

I have done terrible things. can Jesus still save me? Yes, Jesus can still save you. How can I be saved?  You must admit you are a sinner, You must believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, you must repent of your sins, you must receive Jesus Christ as  your saviour, you must confess Jesus Christ as your Lord.  4 - YOU MUST 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." (Rev. 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 do I need to do to be saved? How can I be saved?  You must admit you are a sinner, You must believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, you must repent of your sins, you must receive Jesus Christ as  your saviour, you must confess Jesus Christ as your Lord.  5 - YOU MUST 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)

"Whosoever shall confess Me before men, him shall the Son of man 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)


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.

Ephesians 6:10-11  - (kjv) - "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

"Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;"

"Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is he word of God;  Praying always with al prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints."
