The Untold Progress of the Gospel

By Editorial Staff
Published February 1, 1994

By Dawson Lewis
Reprinted from the South African Forerunner

TODAY THE TRUE MESSAGE OF THE GOSPEL IS liberating people from every tribe and every tongue and every people group around the world. Here are a few of the many examples:

SAUDI ARABIA – 13-year-old Riyadh International Charismatic Christian Fellowship (RICCF) now has several thousand members from 12 nations, including Pakistan, India and at least 500 Saudis. This, in a country that publicly beheaded a Saudi evangelist in 1992.

IRAN – Despite 14 years of war and Islamic Fundamentalist revolution, or perhaps because of it, there has been an 800 percent increase in the number of converts to Christianity.

ALGERIA – Hundreds of Kabyle Berbers living in and around the Atlas mountains came to Christ in 1992 and an indigenous missions agency was established.

INDIA – Among the Gamit people in Guyurat, India, Church membership has grown from zero in 1980 to 60,000 today. In Bihar province, once known as the “graveyard of missions,” one church baptizes 600 converts per month.

NEPAL – Nepal is a Hindu kingdom with harsh laws against the spread of Christianity. Converting to Jesus is punishable with 5 years in jail. Yet since the mid-1950’s the number of Nepalese Christians has grown from near zero to around 150,000. Last Easter, 4,500 Nepalese Christians gathered in front of the National palace for a prayer and praise rally. At the April 1992 conference of the “Nepal Christian Fellowship” plans were laid to increase churches from 200 to 8,000 by the year 2000.

LAOS – Local pastor Khan Ohou Keohavong reports that church membership has increased from 5,000 to 20,000 in the last five years.

VIETNAM – So many highland tribes are converting to Christianity that in early 1992 a Vietnamese newspaper article concluded: “We don’t know what is happening, but it is something called the ‘Good News’ religion.”

CHINA – Officials in Henan Province declared in 1992, “It was you Christians who brought down the regimes in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, but here in China we will stop you now!” In the last 10 years the number of Christians in Henan Province grew from 260,000 to about 600,000. In Szechuan Province, home to one out of every 40 people on earth, 2,000 new churches have been planted in the last three years despite government opposition.

MONGOLIA – A team of German missionaries saw 1,500 residents of the western town of Olgiy convert to Christ in less than two months.

AFRICA – The Assemblies of God, which had only 2,000 churches in 1970, grew to almost 14,000 churches in Africa by 1991. Some missions experts estimate that as many as 20,000 Africans are coming to Christ every day. One example is Bursino Faso, where Assembly of God membership has gone from 25,000 to 350,000 since 1970.

There are many other examples from North and South America, Europe, the former Communist Bloc, Australia and Oceania. But they all have one thing in common. From every race and economic class, from the Arctic Ocean to the Sahara, from Zaire’s rain forest to the board rooms of Wall Street, men and women are serving Jesus with their whole lives. Christianity is the most wide spread ethnically diverse faith in the world.

The Four Keys to the Millennium (Book)

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.

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

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.

Ten parts, over three hours of instruction!

Running Time: 195 minutes
