There is a new generation coming on the horizon. The first fruits of the young people born since Roe vs. Wade was passed in 1973 are coming on the college campuses as freshmen this Fall.
In the very age when abortion, drug abuse, divorce, immorality and violent crime threaten to destroy our nation, God is raising up a new generation of prophets to turn the tide of evil and bring Revival and Awakening to our nation.
In 1973, at about the same time that the first-fruits of these prophets were being conceived, the Supreme Court overturned the national ruling on illegalized abortion in the infamous Rowe vs. Wade decision. Satan, moving through evil men in seats of power, intended to squelch God’s prophetic voice. This has always been the devil’s strategy throughout history.
- In Moses’ day, Pharaoh tried to wipe out the nation of Israel. Satan knew that Moses was going to be the rescuer of God’s people and so he tried to wipe out that prophetic voice.
- In the day of Elijah, Satan again, through King Ahab, tried to destroy through infant sacrifice on the altars of Baal the 7000 prophets that God was raising up.
- When Jesus was born, Satan used Herod to try to wipe out the generation that would produce the Messiah.
- And today, in America’s gross ignorance and wilfull disobedience, we have seen, since 1973, 20 to 30 million little ones destroyed. The enemy is willing to do this because he knows that this is the generation that will do exploits for the kingdom of God.
God is raising up an army!
There is a new generation coming – holy prophets of God who will speak words of healing and life to a dying world. God is raising up an army of young, radical, uncompromising believers who will lay their lives down to see others come to know God.
These soldiers are even now emerging – God Himself is raising them up! They will be more interested in serving their Lord Jesus Christ than in their own happiness. They will fight battles in the spiritual realms. And they will reap the greatest harvest the world have ever seen!
This generation will seek the face of God. They weep for a dying world. They will hear the heart cry of God. Then they will emerge with a message – “THUS SAITH THE LORD!” And the whole world will know that they have truly heard from God.
God has chosen this generation because they are willing to go up and possess the land. God has chosen them to be the generation that will enter into His rest. This will be a generation of destiny – even now God is birthing through them a prohetic voice that will go to the ends of the earth.
It is a prophetic generation that is coming. It is the witness of Moses and Elijah that Satan yearned to destroy, but could not. This is the hour and this is the generation. They shall be the first fruits of a harvest that has never been experienced before – they shall herald a move of the Spirit that has never been seen in the history of the world.
A Prophetic Psalm For Our Generation
The LORD says to my Lord:
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet.”
The LORD will extend your mighty
scepter from Zion;
you will rule in the midst of
Your troops will be willing
on your day of battle.
Arrayed in holy majesty,
from the womb of the dawn
your young men will come to
you like the dew.

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)

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism
Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner
The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.
Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.
Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.

Who is the Real Jesus?
Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.
Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.
The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.
Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.
Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!
