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.

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.

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.

“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).
Welcome to the Second American Revolution!
This DVD features “Liberty: The Model of Christian Liberty” along with “Dawn’s Early Light: A Brief History of America’s Christian Foundations.” Bonus features include a humorous but instructive collection of campaign ads and Eric Holmberg’s controversial YouTube challenge concerning Mitt Romney’s campaign for president.

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)
