Greetings with the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ from our Ismail, Ukraine church of Evangelical Baptist Christians and personally from me, who recently obtained a copy of Predvestnik newspaper. It is a great mercy of God that in our dark, atheistic country there has sprung up, though as of yet rare, Christian newspapers and magazines. Truly it is a miracle of miracles, it is fresh air in a stuffy dungeon. I would like to be your distributor and know more information about distribution. If I cannot handle it myself, I will probably cooperate with a brother or a sister, so that I may make a small contribution in saving souls from destruction in hell.
Ismail, Ukraine [a city bordering Moldava]
Today, I received a copy of Predvestnik dated from 1992. After I read a letter from a brother in Christ who is a missionary to the Tatars, I was compelled by the Holy Spirit to write this letter. I am Bashkir and was saved in October 1992. Ever since then I have been praying for the Tatar translation of the Bible. I wonder if you could send me the address of this brother, for if the Lord chose me from among this nation to know God’s truth, then I cannot rest but should preach Jesus Christ. And to do it, I need a Tatar language Bible. May God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ be blessed, who gave life to such a newspaper, so that we children of God could receive blessings, too. I’ll be praying for you. The Lord bless you and meet all your needs.
Novy Urengoi, Russia [A city near the Arctic]
I pray that all your needs will be met, because the publishing of this newspaper is motivated by Christ’s command – to spread the Word of our Lord and Savior. I am convinced that you will not have problems with distribution, especially among Christians in churches. Many times I witnessed people’s willingness to have and read Predvestnik. The issues printed in 1991 through 1993 are passed from hand to hand as a rarity, for there aren’t actually newspapers like this. I am willing to take an active part in distribution of the newspaper among believers.
I am a Christian Kirghiz. Our True Life church greets you. The article on Jehovah’s Witnesses and Moonies (No.3, 1993) was very interesting and timely. Last year, Moonies came to the region near Issyk-Kul lake, they preached to the students and professors of our university. Jehovah’s Witnesses have been here for about three years. But thanks to the Lord, our church is growing. There are now about 700 children of God in Bishkek, since we started with 120 members. Many people came to us out of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. More than half of our congregation are Kirghiz [a traditionally Muslim nationality] – brothers and sisters from 17 to 35 years old. Our pastors came from Sweden and Austria. Soon we’ll have a Bible school open in our city. God willing, I’ll write you about this.

“These videos helped change my mind from pro-choice to pro-life. Your videos are what did it for me. I will be walking in next year’s March For Life in San Francisco.” — A. Jackson, California
“I was going to have an abortion until I saw your video. Praise Jesus!”

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).

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)
