In the aftermath of the Persian Gulf War, many news sources refered to the “Humiliation of Iraq and Saddam Hussein.” In the meantime, some Iraqis began to lose hope in Allah. Iraqi women could be seen going to Orthodox churches to seek help from the Christian God, as an ABC News video clip attested. “Humiliation” is closely related to the word “humility” which speaks of a humble and contrite heart. This is the heart revealed in these women – the willingness to open up in a new way to God.
The Christian witness, prayer and worship to God in the heart of Islamic territory did much to break the spiritual powers over the region. The war in the natural was a mirror of the war that was going on in the heavenlies as God moved to break the power of Islam in order to open up Moslem nations for the gospel. The Kuwaiti people are thankful to Americans for their liberty. Something they say that has created a bond between Kuwait and the American people that will always be there.
And now the Resistance Front wants democracy for Kuwait. The Resistance who worked during Iraq’s occupation to protect the Iraqi people is demanding democracy, freedom of the speech, and freedom of press. The women are demanding a right to vote. They said the Emir can maintain his title as long as he doesn’t stand in the way of liberty. This strikes at the heart of Islam which is dictatorial in nature and is on a collision course with free markets, free voting and free press. As the winds of freedom blow, Islamic nations will begin to open up to the gospel.
God is overturning nations on a massive scale never seen before. When the Lord of All Nations strikes down a great nation, brace yourself for action. Prepare for massive changes! The God of History will not lose the Great War for the Earth!
“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.“1
In China since the Tianenman 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.”
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. And Jesus promised that he would send signs with those believers to confirm His Word.

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.

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981
Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.
The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.
“… a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification
In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.
By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).
