FACTS ON CHINESE INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
There is no question that the Chinese students studying in America today will one day be the leaders of China in every conceivable field. The Mandate is having an impact on the future leaders of China. The prospect of sending out this new breed of reformers back to China – with no language barriers, no financial barriers, no cultural barriers and no closed doors – staggers the imagination!
The following are some facts about the strategic significance of reaching mainland China’s future leaders:
Almost 23 percent of the world’s population lives in China.
Nearly 50,000 of China’s most distinguished university students are presently studying in the United States.
Of all the international groups studying in the U.S., campus ministry leaders all agree that mainland Chinese students are the most open to the Gospel message.
Most Chinese students realize that the Chinese government has lied to them about nearly everything.
Our U.S. universities are attempting to reeducate these precious visitors with a whole new set of humanistic lies.
If God’s Church does not reach these future leaders, a whole new generation could be subject to a cruel life of tyranny.
Here’s what some Chinese international students are saying about The Mandate:
“I’ve been in the United States one year. I’ve never set foot in a church before and never heard the Gospel message before. I really loved reading The Mandate.”
“I liked the articles by Chinese scientists who are Christians. I always thought Christianity was the antipathy of science. I’m happy to learn that a person can be both a scientist and a Christian.”
“I had no idea that the basis for the U.S. Constitution originated from the Bible.”

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?
Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?
Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?
These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

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.

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)
