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.

“Give me liberty or give me death!”
Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.
The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).

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)
