The problem with some Christians is that they see “revival” as a mystical or highly personal spiritual experience. Revival has this element to it, but it cannot stop there. It must be carried out into all the world around us. Jesus did not call us simply to be “in the world but not of it.” He called us to be transformers of the world system. The sad fact is that most adult Christians have already missed their call to spiritual awakening. The vast majority of church-going America is too culturally irrelevant to be used of God to transform our society. In the meantime, our nation’s young people are ready to receive their marching orders. Can we move beyond our own pietistic foolishness to see the need and act as Joshua and Caleb who led a generation of revived youth into the land of promise?
Most adults do not believe that America can be transformed into a Christian nation. We see the reality of evil and lose heart. We have become as “grasshoppers in the eyes of giants.” This was the attitude that Joshua and Caleb confronted in the wilderness. God told Joshua and Caleb that they and the younger generation under 20 years of age would be the ones to go into the Promised Land because they had wholeheartedly followed God. They had full faith and belief in God that He could defeat all of their enemies once they went into the Promised Land to conquer and possess it.
Do you have the faith of Joshua and Caleb? Are you able to stand with the youth of the current generation? Are you ready to be used to lead an army of young people? Do you want to know what the plan of God is? Do you feel an urging to do something that can be used of God even though most Christians around you are fearful to upset the world system? The only effective plan of action is from God’s Word itself. God will begin to unfold His plan if you will simply covenant yourself with God’s purposes revealed in scripture.
Covenant Prayer: A plan to reclaim the promises of God for our generation
Covenant prayer is a method of praying whole passages from the Bible that contain God’s promises to His people. As you begin to read the scriptures, look for prophecies concerning Israel that are applicable to what you see around you today. As you begin to pray these scriptures, they will come alive and you will be inspired to believe great things for your nation. Every book of the Bible contains covenantal promises, but there are two places that are paticularly rich.
If you will spend just a few minutes each day not just reading but praying and meditating on the following passages, see if God does not give you a vision for revival in our time.
1. Isaiah chapters 52 66
2. Deuteronomy chapters 28,29

Just what is Calvinism?
Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?
This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy
Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.
Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.
Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification
In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.
By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!
Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.
Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.
