“Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you.” – 2 Chronicles 20:17
We are praying that God record’s His name in Orlando, Florida and His Holy Spirit bids you come. As you come receive this admonishment from God’s word, “Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help” (Psalm 146:3). We are beyond a political solution. The battle for the future of America is in our hands. We will show up, put our trust in Jesus, and witness the salvation of our Lord.

My hope is not for another week-long event or a 40 Day event, but a 365-day concerted effort to end child-killing in our city in Jesus’ name.
- Jay Rogers, Orlando, Florida
Join Us In Orlando, July 16-23, 2011
We are not waiting for an election cycle to bring an end to child-killing. There is no time for that. We are going to unsheathe the Sword of the Spirit and bring justice to victory.
• We are not waiting for our government to stop abortion
• We are not waiting for President Obama to stop abortion
• We are not waiting for the Supreme Court to stop abortion
Abortion will come to an end in America when the Church of Jesus Christ makes up her mind that it will come to an end – not one second sooner! We have a promise from God that the gates of hell will not prevail against His church. Abortion is a Gospel issue. We win when we storm the gates of hell in Jesus’ Name.
We win when we show up!
The battle for the lives of preborn children is being won as gentle Christians live out their faith in the streets of their cities. Abortion is not a political issue. It is a Gospel issue. When gentle Christians allow their theology to become biography, the gates of hell cannot prevail! The heart of our nation is changing toward the unborn child.
The truth concerning the sanctity of life is overcoming the lie of abortion. The abortion industry is crumbling as the Church of Jesus Christ storms the gates of hell.
• In 1991 there were over 2,000 free standing abortion mills. Today, there are 713 and many more are closing.
• A recent Gallop poll showed that a majority of Americans identified themselves “prolife” (51% vs. 42%). This is the first time a majority of U.S. adults have identified themselves as pro-life since Gallup began asking this question in 1995.
• As the heart of our nation changes the politics of our nation is changing. In an exit poll on Nov 2, 2010, 30% of women reported that abortion affected their vote. Of these 22% reported voting pro-life and 8% pro-abortion.
• The Marist Poll in Jan 2010 reported 56% of all Americans and 58% of those ages 18-29 say abortion is “morally wrong.” We are winning the hearts of the young.
• “Personhood” initiatives for the unborn are now in process in all 50 states. We hope to gather 10,000 signatures for the Florida “Personhood” initiative this summer.
• Abortions peaked at just over 1.6 million children killed in 1990. Today, the annual number of abortions performed in the U.S. has dropped to levels not seen since the late 1970s. (CDC & Alan Guttmacher Institute).
• The three individuals most instrumental in ushering in the Roe v. Wade era are today, all professing, confessing, Christians – Norma McCorvey (Jane Roe), Sandra Cano (Mary Doe), and Dr. Bernard Nathanson (founder of NARAL).
• “Abortion opponents will achieve their goal without ever having to overturn Roe v. Wade (Kate Michelman of NARAL).
It is as the heart of a nation changes, that the laws of the land will begin to reflect that change.
The battle for the lives of preborn children must first be won in the streets of our cities before it will be won in Washington, D.C.
“You are the light of the world … let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your father in heaven.” – Matthew 5: 14-16
Our Battle Cry
“If my people, who are called by my Name, shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14
The charge by Rev. D. James Kennedy, for OSA National Event in Wichita, Kansas, 2001. Today there are no operating abortion mills in Wichita.
In spite of one of the most startling statements in all of God’s Word – ‘all those who hate me love death’ (Proverbs 8:36) – we have watched our beloved nation, in a very short period of time, become infatuated with death. The time has come for those who value human life to oppose this gross moral evil with every resource available under law. I charge you to understand that the battle is not with any human organization, but with the principalities and powers of darkness. It is Satan, whom Jesus called a murderer from the beginning, who is behind this thrust to kill the innocent. If the Christian Church can be mobilized into an effective spiritual assault team to fight these forces, we can have every confidence that God will grant us victory.

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

Special Two-Disc Set!
After 40 years of intense study and world-wide ministry, Dr. Francis Schaeffer completed his crowning work of scholarship – to present profound truths in simple film language. Dr. Schaeffer’s brilliant analysis of the past and predictions for current trends have proven so uncannily accurate that this amazing series still feels contemporary almost three decades after its initial release. Ultimately, Schaeffer concludes that man’s only hope is a return to God’s Biblical absolute, the truth revealed in Christ through the Scriptures.
Available for the first time on DVD, this documentary spectacular also includes intimate in-depth conversations with Francis and Edith Schaeffer. With the on-disc study guide, this presentation forms a unique course of comprehensive study. While this series forms an innovative analysis of the past, this outstanding work is more than history. Each episode focuses on a significant era, yet speaks clearly to 21st-century man with answers for modern problems.

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?
Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!
Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.
Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)

Who is the Real Jesus?
Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.
Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.
The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.
Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.
