Experiencing the Actual Presence of God
By Derek Levendusky
You could feel the excitement and faith in the room the moment we began worshipping and praying. The Holy Spirit led us to pray for the Church to be bold and free from discouragement, for the Lord of the Harvest to send out laborers, for the 30,000 international students, for the 50,000 Jewish students, and for the thousands of other students and people in Boston.
Bob Weiner and the Boston Awakening team are here to train student leaders on college campuses. Before the training, we had time to talk and enjoy each other over pizza and juice.

During the meeting, a young man named Joseph came in to the sanctuary and began to weep. He walked up to Bob Weiner and asked, “Could you please lead me in the steps of how to be saved?”
Bob led Joseph to the Lord publicly, and we all felt that this was the first taste of what God will do in the coming awakening! We were surprised that we saw someone receive Christ at a 10 am prayer meeting on a weekday. Joseph said he could not wait to make a public profession of faith and asked to be baptized! Joseph is now a member of church here in Boston called Lion of Judah. Many young people are coming to know God in Boston!
The city is having a revival of prayer, love, unity, salvation and experience with Jesus, especially among youth who are coming to the city with a vision to reclaim education for God! Many students, most of them Chinese and Koreans, are coming to know Jesus Christ.
I spoke with one of the young students from Japan who is here studying for his PhD in Physics. I asked him after the meeting about his experience with God. He answered simply, “I don’t know God.” I spoke with him about Jesus. More people approached him and answered his questions. Another girl from Japan had the same experience of learning about the love of God. What I found is that young people need and want Jesus, but few are going to them. God is moving!

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.

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

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.

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)

“Here I stand … I can do no other!”
With these immortal words, an unknown German monk sparked a spiritual revolution that changed the world.
The dramatic classic film of Martin Luther’s life was released in theaters worldwide in the 1950s and was nominated for two Oscars. A magnificent depiction of Luther and the forces at work in the surrounding society that resulted in his historic reform efforts, this film traces Luther’s life from a guilt-burdened monk to his eventual break with the Roman Catholic Church.
