The recession is over and a stock market boom is on, the likes of which have not been experienced since 1948! So much for the doomsayers. Freedom and liberty always gives rise to prosperity.
“For the first time ever, mankind is reaching a consensus on the best form of economy: free markets. At the rate we’re going, the wave of reform will soon engulf the planet and leave any non-free-market countries trapped in a backwater of poverty. When poverty becomes a regional exception instead of the rule, socialist and totalitarian leaders will be killed or ousted …
“For the first time ever, mankind is reaching a consensus on the best form of government: representative, multi-party democracies. Reports of reform and revolution are pouring in from everywhere.” (James H. Rutz, 1700 Years is Long Enough, Open Churches Ministries, Costa Mesa, Calf., p.36-37)
For the first time the free nations of the world have united against a would be aggressor and have defeated him before he could ravage and pillage the world, showing that this type of nation building will never be tolerated again. The war of tongues is fading as the English language is rapidly sweeping the world. Every serious student must know English. This makes massive communication possible.
The stage is being set, not for some one world government of “antichrist,” but for the Dominion of the Lamb. That “stone cut out of the mountain” which struck the golden image in the book of Daniel is destined to become a great mountain that will fill the whole earth with fruit, for the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our God and of His Christ. The great harvest of the gentile nations is being prepared to be gathered in and the nation of Israel shall be saved.
What still lies between now and victory remains to be seen. Communism is dead. Dialectical materialism has been the best appetizer for Christian truth ever invented. The crumbling evil empire has turned into the greatest red hot mission field, so vast that the Western church hardly knows where to start.
In China since the Tiennenman Square massacre, according to Feb. 3, 1990 World, “In at least seven cities … students have indicated … that as many as 10% of entire student bodies have converted. In some cases entire dorms or even faculties have all become Christians.” According to one lecturer at Xiamen University, “I would defy anyone to walk from one building to another on this campus and not bump into a group of students having a Bible study in the open air.”
We are left with four worldwide religious forces capable of taking the lead – Christianity, Islam, the New Age, and humanism. Islam is dictatorial and on a collision course with free markets, free voting, etc. It is the number one competition because of the stronghold on its people. In the recent war that stronghold has been shaken to the point of being broken and they too will not be able to resist freedom nor Christianity.
The New Age can be discounted. It is based on Hinduism which has never accomplished anything. Secular humanism has tried and failed. While it is still the incumbent in many places of the West, it is on its way our to be replaced by something greater.
Because of the power that God is unleashing world wide, business as usual will not do anymore. The battle has shifted gears and now the battle for the entire planet’s faith is coming our way. There is no seminary in the world able to grind out enough graduates to fill the pulpits and feed the converts in this new harvest field.
The answer – the listening laity who have never have been viewed as ready for prime time must be released into the harvest field. The great commission was given on that Judean hillside almost 2000 years ago, not to twelve apostles alone, it was given to all those who would believe. And Jesus promised that he would send signs with those believers to confirm His Word. Jesus said they were qualified. Who is to say they are not?

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 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.
