By Leah Ramirez
A few months ago I was watching the movie Amazing Grace about the life of William Wilberforce, and suddenly, faith burst into my heart that public opinion could indeed be changed! We have faithfully run a Bound4LIFE chapter in Orlando for the last three years, but I have to admit, although I have given much of my time to this issue, I never had faith that things could actually change until one night when God broke into my own heart.
I believe the Lord has released a strategy for the nation that, at first glance, looks like a step backwards. For the nation to shift, the regions must press forward. A few months ago, I began studying the early history of America and the Continental Congress, a time in our history when the convention of delegates truly spoke on behalf of their region. The future of what would become the nation was at stake. Today, we find ourselves in this same place yet again. The future of America is at stake, literally. The regions must raise their voices. The regions must press forward. The regions must stand for life.
As we pray for our national government to uphold life, we have a responsibility in our own region to be a witness. After all, abortions are not happening in the Supreme Court building, they happen in our neighborhoods! The church is required to be the conscience of America. Let’s start in our own backyards.
This is a call to action! On May 1, thousands will gather in silent prayer from 10 am-12 pm, covering every abortion center in Florida. We will lay aside our denominational differences and preferences to be the demonstration of justice for those who have no voice. We will come as a silent force with one message: LIFE.
If not now, when?
If not you, who?
To find a place where you can take a stand, we have a growing list of abortion centers on our website: www.Stand4LIFE.info.
A few weeks ago, we believed the number of abortion clinics was 63 in Florida. We are now discovering the number is closer to 90. Miami, a largely Hispanic city, is being targeted in a profound way by abortion. We have to stand with her in this fight for life.
On April 24, the Saturday before Stand4LIFE, thousands will gather from all over Florida at the University of Central Florida (UCF) Field to pray for our state. It’s time for Florida to come together and contend for our own region. We will lift our voice as one man and cry out to God. And He will hear from heaven and heal our land.
Please pray for Florida over the next weeks. Consider joining us for the prayer gathering on April 24, and standing on May 1 in your own region. There is something awesome about knowing we are all standing together, sending up an S.O.S. God, save our souls!

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion
This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.
Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.
“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?
Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?
Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?
These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

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)

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.
