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.

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.

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism (DVD)

Download the Free Study Guide!

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.

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

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.
