In the past, The Forerunner was geared toward Christians who understood biblical worldview, revival and reformation. But we also included apologetics and distributed it to college students. Christians supported the publication and it was also used in evangelism. The website has given a lot of the older articles a life of their own. Several popular articles now have more single page accesses than we printed copies of The Forerunner in it’s entire history.
While I am happy with the way my publications have turned out, I know that I could have done a lot better if there were a larger team of people who could have contributed something in their own area of excellence — more writers, graphics and design, distribution and so on. My area of expertise is mainly content.
With The Boston Awakening magazine, I now have the vision to produce a seamless media ministry that would begin with a magazine that has an anointed prophetic word combined with smart graphics and attractive photography. And then make this available on the Internet through PDF and HTML. From there I would produce a news magazine DVD that would also be available on the Internet through podcasting, streaming video, and new video technologies just around the corner.
For instance, in doing the magazine, my vision has expanded and I am full of ideas. I see a larger multi-faceted media concept unfolding from this — print publishing, DVDs, on-line video, web sites, and so on.
1. The Boston Awakening Magazine (print version)
2. The on-line PDF version
3. The website
4. The Boston Awakening DVD
5. The on-line streaming video clips from the DVD
6. The live multi-media teaching seminar
The list goes on. The optimal plan involves starting several “Media Houses” in various parts of the U.S. and the world, which would be college students who would work part-time on one of the components and freely share their work with the Media House network. My role in this would be traveling and teaching students to preach the Gospel through media.
I don’t see it as my project, but something that will grow out naturally of the youth revival — which will spread world-wide as media technologies become more and more seamless — one medium being easily converted to another — language translation becoming easier through technology — and so on.
I don’t have the time here to explain it all and my vision is growing each day anyway. Hopefully, God will give me the energy and inspiration to keep it up.
What you are doing through music is an important part of this and you ought to seek as much as possible to integrate what you are doing with other types of media, in other languages, through many different channels.
More to come …

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.

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.

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?
This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.
Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.
The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?
As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).
Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981
Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.
The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.
“…a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine
