Predvestnik: The Russian Language Forerunner

More Letters to Predvestnik

By Editorial Staff
Published November 1, 1994

Responses to the “Islam” issue:

1. Dear workers of Predvestnik!

We have read your issue (#2’94), and its contents gave us courage. We were especially inspired by the material about the Muslim world [telling about persecutions of Christians in Iran]. We could realize how unstable is our world. In our country, Christians are not persecuted, this is over in our land. Christians in this country, however, still suffer the pressure.

This information on Iran stirred within us a prayer for the region. We understand that all Christians are one people, the people of the Living God. We at our church believe that God will build there large, strong local churches which will influence the wicked Iranian government. In these last times, God is going to change whole nations and countries. This is His time, so let us, God’s children, be active in His work.

Pastor of Emmanuel Church,

2. Beloved by the Lord,

We greet you in the name of Jesus Christ. We thank God for your labor on God’s fields, we pray for you. We liked the issue of Predvestnik #2’94 very much, I also noticed my letter published in it. The issue contains very valuable information about Islam, our people in Kazakhstan must learn the truth. Your newspaper is helpful in accomplishing of this. Your section “News from around the world” was very interesting, we’ve used the material in church sermons.

We distribute Predvestnik in various places: first of all in public schools, in prisons, in charitable institutions, etc. Both believers and non-believers read it.

We would like to remain on your mailing list for further distribution. Our church is new, we have about 100 lay people in it. We believe that with God’s help, through our prayers it’s going to build up, grow in faith and love.

Eugene Ku,
Temirtau, Kazakhstan


3. Greetings, dear brothers and sisters,

I’m a Christian, a student at a high school, I have other Christians in my student community. We need spiritual literature very much. We are eager to learn about spiritual growth, victorious Christian life, prayer.

My friends and I do not attend churches since the small villages we live in are scattered around the region. We desperately need the source of spiritual nourishment to help us survive and carry the life to others. I’d like to receive your newspaper.

Dedelyuk Svetlana,
Ukraine


4. Greetings, brothers and sisters,

We have found your newspaper Predvestnik very insightful (we were handed several issues by chance). We, teachers in a public school, make efforts to bring up the next younger generation in Christian spirit, but unfortunately, don’t have appropriate Christian literature. So we ask to send us some issues of Predvestnik.

I. V. Vasilyeva,
Vitebsk, Byelorus


5. We greet you by the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We have the word of God freely preached in Kazakhstan with no grave obstacles to date. However, Muslims and Orthodox believers have united their efforts, they conducted a manifestation in the city of Karakol and succeeded in depriving our [Evangelical] brothers of the place to meet in. Yet, the Lord is leading us, He will turn everything to our good.

Workers of Agape Ministries,

6. Greetings, dear brothers and sisters!

Our church was started in June 1994 in the city of Vyatskiye Polyany, Russia after the Christian team from the city of Kazan demonstrated the Jesus film.

I’ve been reading your newspaper for a long time. I like its soundness and relevancy. There are about 50 thousand people in our city. We are praying that they could have the opportunity to hear and know the Word of God. We believe your newspaper is going to help us in accomplishing that.

May God’s grace, love and peace abide with you always.

Pastor of Church of Christ,
Vasily Grishchenko,
Vyatskiye Polyany, Tatarstan


7. Peace to you, beloved of the Lord!

Thank you for the last issue of Predvestnik, it’s been a blessing to the readers. We would like to still receive the newspaper for distribution among citizens of Tashkent.

God is wonderfully working in Uzbekistan — hundreds of people from various nationalities become believers, new churches are emerging in cities and villages of Asia.

Let your Predvestnik be the voice of the truth in this tumultuous time for everyone who longs for God.

Thank you!

With love from Tashkent, Uzbekistan,
German Uvarov


8. Greetings!

Recently a few issues of Predvestnik were brought to our church. The issues were immediately carried from hands to hands. I read one of them.

It’s my conviction that it’s very important to view life in such a broad scope. God, who created everything, is so great, He has given me not only my heart, but also my mind, not ears only, but also my eyes — all this must be active. If we become self-contained, self-sufficient, we lose much, and you view some daily-life, relevant issues, inform about various events that happen in the world from the Christian perspective. This is especially needed, since it’s very hard to evaluate the events on the ground of information from the secular media.

My friends liked the newspaper, too, and we want to distribute it among the members of our church.

Christians of Rock of Refuge Church,
Murmansk, Russia


9. Greetings!

We have received the next issue of Predvestnik and are grateful to you for that. We are glad to read about Christian revival, Reformation, archeology and music from the Christian standpoint.

We transported 160 issues to the city of Klaypeda, Latvia, which are distributed through many cities in that country. Having read the newspaper, we decided to scrutinize every article at home group cell meetings.

We pray for you that God grant you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in knowing Him, to carry the Gospel with even greater effect into Russia and beyond its borders.

You publish Predvestnik, and we take part in distributing it. So, we together fulfill the Great Commission.

May God bless you.

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

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.

Ten parts, over three hours of instruction!

Speakers include: R.J. Rushdoony, George Grant, Howard Phillips, R.C. Sproul Jr., Ken Gentry, Gary DeMar, Jay Grimstead, Steven Schlissel, Andrew Sandlin, Eric Holmberg, and more!

Sixteen Christian leaders and scholars answer some of the most common questions and misconceptions related to this volatile issue:

1. Are we under Law or under Grace?
2. Does the Old Testament Law apply today?
3. Can we legislate morality?
4. What are the biblical foundations of government?
5. Was America founded as a Christian nation?
6. What about the separation of Church and State?
7. Is neutrality a myth?
8. What about non-Christians and the Law of God?
9. Would there be “freedom” in a Christian republic?
10. What would a “Christian America” look like?

Perfect for group instruction as well as personal Bible study.

The Silent Scream (DVD) Eight Languages

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981

Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House. More recently, it was by catching just a glimpse of what this film reveals that Planned Parenthood director and abortion advocate Abby Johnson turned and became a strong advocate for the pre-born.

The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.

“…a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Languages: English, Spanish, French, South Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese
