The Forerunner Manifesto (Part 6)

Kronos vs. Kairos

If you are familiar with the biblical “time” teaching of the kronos vs. the kairos, then what I have written makes sense. In God’s providence, during times of revival (kairos), time is compressed and the Kingdom advances in an exponential manner. Kairos is the appointed time in the purpose of God. These times of revival occur between other times (kronos) when we are confined by the daily schedule of clock time that supports and creates our ego structure. The longer our faithfulness in the time of kronos, the greater the succeeding intensity of the kairos time of revival.

In writing this, I have made some further sense out of everything that has happened with churches and ministries I have been involved with. For instance, there has been a continual cycle of death and rebirth of vision. Every time I started out fresh with new energy, there were offers along the way that meshed with the vision, and opportunities presented themselves without any expectation. There have been periods of time when I seemed to do more than humanly possible followed by periods of decline and frustration. These cycles have usually lasted about three years. There have been the sudden opportunities and open doors after the end of a church or ministry connection. There has often been relocation involved with the rebirthing of ministry. New Years’ Day has often been a significant time. Since I have been a believer, these birth-death cycles have been:

1985-1989

1990-1993

1994-1997

1998-2000

2001-2005

God has given me an extremely long (kronos) period since I got married. I haven’t really moved me in any particular direction as far as ministry goes. On the other hand, I see my marriage as the birth of my family, which is the most important ministry a man can have. So if the pattern holds, then 2006 may be the beginning of something big that will culminate in the next three or four years.

What does it all mean?

But let me explain this in practical terms. I don’t know what these new opportunities will be, but my feeling is that I ought to look for people to carry on this vision in strategic regions of the United States and at least two foreign countries. I’d like to go back to Europe and South America. I’d like to produce two or three DVD titles a year for the next few years and train a staff to carry on much of the work. At some point, I also think that doors are going to open for me to travel and present seminars on the topics covered in my books and DVDs. My hope is that The Forerunner will eventually become a ministry like R.C. Sproul’s Ligonier Ministries with me producing a series of books and DVDs and using the Internet and digital media as the main method of preaching the Gospel. I also plan to stay put in one place for the next few years and build a more solid financial base for my family.

Hi, I enjoyed your blog. My wife and I are postmil, Calvinist, theonomists and hope one day to have our own Christian media business. May God bless you in what you do! Oh, and having grown up in Altamonte Springs, I couldn't help but wonder which high school you teach at? I went to Lake Brantley.

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

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.

Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!

The Beast of Revelation IdentifiedThe Beast of Revelation: Identified (DVD)

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)

Freedom: The Model of Christian Liberty (DVD)

“Give me liberty or give me death!”

Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.

The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).

Welcome to the Second American Revolution!

This DVD features “Liberty: The Model of Christian Liberty” along with “Dawn’s Early Light: A Brief History of America’s Christian Foundations.” Bonus features include a humorous but instructive collection of campaign ads and Eric Holmberg’s controversial YouTube challenge concerning Mitt Romney’s campaign for president.

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

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.
