watch religious TV programs or listen to Christian rock music,” Pew researchers declare.
It was also revealed that 46 percent of respondents say they have seen others share their faith online.

Here's What Protestants in 18 Latin American Countries Believe and Practice
Nov. 18, 2014 - Among the findings of an extensive survey by the Pew Foundation, Protestantism is flourishing in
Latin America. About one out of three Protestants share their faith with others weekly. About half of them pray daily and attend
church weekly. Protestant attendance at church is growing at the expense of the Catholic church.
[Unfortunately, from our point of view], the report also found that:
"Prosperity gospel" theology is widespread in Latin America, but not always the dominant view among Protestants.
The prosperity gospel affirms that “God will grant wealth and good health to believers who have enough faith."

James Dobson: America headed toward 'depravity,'needs revival
Oct. 25, 2014 - In his recent newsletter James Dobson recounted the Bible story of the depravity of Sodom and Gomorrah and their
destruction by God. He said America is heading in the same direction.
Dobson added, “Judge Robert Bork, the brilliant jurist who was shamefully denied a seat on the Supreme Court, wrote a book about this danger 18 years ago.
It was titled, ‘Slouching Towards Gomorrah.’ I think he had it right.”
Dobson's stern warning was matched by Evangelist Billy Graham's assessment in the latest Decision magazine. Graham said
America is just as wicked as Sodom and Gomorrah. However, he wrote that, "God would spare us if we were earnestly praying, with hearts that
been cleansed and washed by the blood of Christ.”

SIGNS OF REVIVAL
My wife Barbara and I watched the Dove Awards for Christian music last night. We enjoyed it more than ever, and toward the end of the event, it
occurred to us that the whole evening was more like a beautiful worship service than a display of human achievement. It was truly a night of
glorious praise and worship of our Great God and the Lord Jesus Christ!
Before announcing the award for "Best Artist of the Year"- Amy Grant confirmed our feelings by saying this:
I heard a lot of artists whose music was new to me, and I feel a kind of energy in the music of the Church that I have not felt in all the
years of making music.
It comes as no surprise that in Bible times, when wars were to be fought, the musicians were sent out in front. It's a powerful place to be.
[2 Chronicles 20:20-23]
The winner was Hillsong United for the album that includes the incredible worship song, "Oceans."
Near the end of the event they announced the "Best Praise and Worship Album of the Year." It went to Kari Jobe, a vibrant young worship leader
who is known for encouraging huge audiences to praise the Lord and experience His presence.
We were especially pleased with this worshipful event, and are hopeful that it is a harbinger of a great End Times Revival. With this in mind,
I am including the conclusion of our latest book, The Church in Prophecy and History: Revelation
Commentary Chapters 1-3.
Final Thoughts about an End Time Revival
If you have read this far, you probably have the same earnest longing that I do for a great revival in our days. Is such a desire realistic?
Yes, because God is not willing that any should perish (2 Peter 3:9). In the book of Jonah we learn that even in such an evil place as Nineveh,
the capital of Israel's enemy, the Assyrians, God wanted those who had never heard the truth to have the opportunity to believe and be saved.
The prophet Jonah did not want the Assyrians to have that privilege, so he fled from God. After he had been caught, and then released from the
great fish, the Lord sent him to Nineveh, and he did warn the people there to repent and turn to God. To his amazement, a great revival broke out,
and huge numbers believed in the Lord. Nineveh was still eventually destroyed for its evil history, but at least those who would believe in God
were given the opportunity to believe.
Earlier, in Noah's time, God not only told him to build an ark, but also to preach righteousness to the people. In their case, the Bible says,
their thoughts were "only evil continually" (Genesis 6:5). None of them repented and believed except for Noah's own family.
Our generation is complex. There are places like parts of Central and South America, Korea, and parts of Africa where there are revivals going
on now with amazing numbers of believers winning others to Christ. In China the underground church has grown exponentially and is spiritually
strong in spite of persecution. Europe and North America, the bastions of the truth during the Missionary Age, have slowly grown apathetic. It i
s worse in Europe, where many of the churches have become taverns or mosques, but it seems that the United States is following in their footsteps.
How does God see our present world? We can be sure He still loves all of His creatures. Through His Son He has already provided salvation for
all who will receive it.
Like the Laodicean Church, there is still an opportunity for lukewarm Christians to be revived. But will we? Our young people desperately need
to know the truth about Jesus, and a great many of them do not understand the Gospel.
We cannot schedule a revival, nor do anything great to make it happen. But we can repent of our worldliness and pray:
If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear
from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. - 2 Chronicles 7:14
Critics might point out the fact that this verse was given in Solomon's days to the Chosen People. But can anyone doubt that God would treat
His adopted children in the Church (John 1:12; Romans 8:15; Galatians 4:5; Ephesians 1:5) the same way? Writing to the Corinthians, Paul made it
clear that the things that happened to Israel are examples to us (1 Corinthians 10:6-11).
To put it another way, if we care about the souls of people-including our own relatives and friends, how can we not earnestly desire for them to
come to know the Lord? How could we not pray for the right circumstances in their lives to point them to Christ? Why would we not pray for another
mighty revival for their sake?
In conclusion, here are some of the promising developments of this present time that could lead to a world-wide revival, or to many smaller
renewals. In future years, if we are still here, we will look back and notice whether or not they produced the desired result. If not, we will
compose a new list and publish an updated commentary.
Missionary activity - (See the extensive notes about the Missionary accomplishments of the Church in Chapter 3, verse 8).
Even though missionary work has declined, there are tens of thousands of highly-trained, incredibly-devoted missionaries still taking the Gospel
to the masses using all the methods that have been produced in the past, and utilizing advanced technology to finish the task of providing
Scriptures to people everywhere. Most of the best results in our generation are the work of indigenous leaders in nearly every country of the
world. Who knows when something very powerful might begin in some inconspicuous place that would lead to a wild-fire of revival and evangelism!
Heroes of the Faith - People love heroes, especially in sports and entertainment. There are many dedicated, courageous Christians in government,
the media, education, science, and other fields. Some of them might have the platform to influence great numbers of young people for Christ.
Time will tell.
Prayer movements - There are many prayer movements today. Some of them are led by young people. This is especially
significant since bright young people and young adults have been leaders in past revivals, and it is primarily for their sake that we
desire to experience such a renewal. Historically, major revivals have often come from college youth movements.
Christian music - Just as most the great hymns of yesteryear were the product of revival movements, so inspiring new
music, performed by exceptional young artists, are making an incredible impact on people today.
Our book, The Church in Prophecy and History: Revelation Commentary Chapters 1-3 is
available from Amazon.com.
Christian movies and videos - The Jesus Film Project (mentioned in Chapter 3, verse 8), which has been seen by more than
6 billion viewers, is still being shown to approximately 3.8 million people per year in more than a thousand languages.
Actually some of the highest-grossing movies on the big screen have been Bible epics or faith-based stories. In 2004 Mel Gibson shocked the
movie industry by making the blockbuster "The Passion of the Christ." It became the highest grossing R-rated film in the United States. (It was
rated R because of the violence Our Lord suffered.) The most popular 2013 TV series was "The Bible," with more than a million viewers. Mark
Burnett and Roma Downey, the producers of that series have now released the biblically-accurate and moving "Son of God." And they are
planning on a follow-up series in 2015 on NBC called "A.D.: After the Bible." An independent film, "God's Not Dead," had surprising success
at the box office and delivered a powerful Gospel message for young people and young adults. Several other Bible or faith-based movies are
in process, and the trend is seen as a surprise movement from Hollywood.
Television and Radio keep improving with new applications and technological advancements. TBN, CBN, Sky Angel, Daystar
and other TV satellite networks reach most of the planet with Christian programming.
Trans World Radio (TWR) is the largest media ministry, and it is still expanding. They project that by 2015 they will be able to deliver
Christian content to nearly 60 percent of the people in the world in their own language.
Salem Broadcasting is another extensive provider of Christian content, but there are hundreds of smaller networks and Christian stations
that also feed the mind and spirit of Christians. Some of these programs are Christian talk radio. These informative broadcasts help inform
Christians of important events that could lead to revival, and mobilize the Christian community for action when necessary.
As mentioned above, The Internet has become the preferred source of information for many people. Web based videos now
rival television's viewing audience. An almost unfathomable number of videos are now available via YouTube and other providers using smart
phone service and the Internet. Some of these "go viral" and can suddenly and unexpectedly be seen by millions of viewers. Many of these
spontaneous successes have been Christian stories or messages.
Books- Solomon said "Of making many books there is no end" (Ecclesiastes 12:12). Printed books are less popular at the
moment, but Amazon.com had started a new free book publishing service to stimulate the production of new literature. This upsurge will not
just appear on paper, but will be electronically transmitted instantly and inexpensively to computers and smart phones all over the world.
A new thing--something we have not yet considered--might be the most likely form that the Lord, the ultimate creative
genius of the Universe, will use to launch an end time revival. The Bible story is a continuous progression of new things from God's own hand.
The Creation, the Flood, the call of Abraham, the birth of Isaac when Abraham was 100, Joseph's rise to power in Egypt, the burning bush,
the Exodus, manna in the wilderness, supernatural conquests, the prophets dreams and visions, the star that led the Magi, the human birth
of the Son of God, Jesus miracles, the apostle's miraculous ability to speak in other languages on the Day of Pentecost, and so many
other innovations demonstrate the endless variety of God's dealing with mankind.
The whole chapter of Isaiah 43 reminds believers of God's creativity. Here are just two verses from that chapter:
"Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert. - Isaiah 43:18-19
What will the Lord do in our times to bring about a revival? Will we be part of it? Please join me in asking the Lord to allow us to be involved in whatever He is going to do!

"Left Behind" - Is the Rapture a Biblical Concept?
Oct. 5, 2014 - With the release of "Left Behind," based on Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins' best-selling novel series, Joel Rosenberg
addresses the question: "Does the Bible really teach that Christians will suddenly be 'caught up' by Christ when He returns for us?" Liberal
theologians try to make the case that the concept of the Rapture was invented in the 1800's, but this article shows that the belief is firmly
established in the Bible itself. Rosenberg answers basic questions:
•What exactly is “The Rapture”?
•Is “The Rapture” a Biblical concept, or merely a fictional plot device?
•What does the term mean?
•What are the implications of “The Rapture”?

Where is America in end times prophecy?
Sept. 7, 2014 - Evangelist Greg Laurie answers why America does not seem to be mentioned in End Times prophecy. He admits that no one
can say for sure, but even though many modern countries can be identified in prophecies, there are two possible reasons that our country may not be
mentioned. One of these reasons would be that we have been reduced in power and importance by God's judgment on the nation for straying from our
historically biblical roots, and the other possibility would be that we have experienced another much-need revival.
In the judgment scenario, it is possible that the U.S. will have been crippled by a nuclear attack before the final End Times conflicts begin. It is also
possible that the nation will have just lost its importance on the world scene, and will have declined like all the former empires in history.
Laurie's preferred theory is that there could be another great revival. He says,
In some ways, things have never been worse morally. Yet there is great opportunity for the gospel. There is an open door for believers to go
through to reach out to other people.
If there is a great End Times revival the number of born-again Christians will increase. Then, when the Rapture takes place, the nation will suddenly be
left without many of its best citizens, and could become less relevant on the world stage.

Rev. Graham: ‘As I Read the News, I Can’t Help But Wonder if We're in Last Hours’
Sept. 5, 2014 - Franklin Graham writes that with all the bad news about wars, persecution, diseases, etc., he "Can’t Help But Wonder if We're
in Last Hours." He said that Jesus gave this answer when His disciples asked about the end of the age:
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted,
and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake” (Matthew 24:9, KJV).
At the same time, he stressed that this is an opportune time for evangelism. In addition to stadium crusades, he says the Good News will be proclaimed
to thousands and broadcast over the Internet to reach even more. In addition, a powerful new My Hope film will soon be released with a never-before-seen
message from his father, Billy Graham about Heaven. This will give Christians a reason to invite friends and loved ones to their homes and churches to hear the Gospel.

Ground Zero ‘cross’ can stay at 9/11 museum as atheists lose court challenge
July 28, 2014 - A cross beam in the shape of a cross was found in the rubble of the twin towers after the 9/11 attack. It was seen by many as
a symbol of faith and hope, but the American Atheists Inc sued to not allow it to be displayed in the Ground Zero Museum. A federal circuit court ruled
against the atheists. The three-judge decision said:
“The stated purpose of displaying The Cross at Ground Zero to tell the story of how some people used faith to cope with the tragedy is genuine and an
objective observer would understand the purpose of the display to be secular.”

Apr. 19, 2014 - In Joel Rosenberg's 2009 non-fiction book, Inside the Revolution, he told of “MBBs,” Muslim Background Believers in Jesus. One example
of the movement was Dr. Hormoz Shariat, who in 1979 had been a Shia Muslim shouting “Death to America!” on the streets of Tehran. He later became a Christian,
along with his wife, and they started planting churches of Iranian believers. Eventually they founded a satellite TV ministry. Today, there are over one million
Iranians who love Jesus Christ, and millions of other former Muslims throughout the Middle East, North Africa and central Asia who are celebrating the death and
resurrection of Jesus Christ.

How "Noah" And "God’s Not Dead" Are Making The Bible Popular Again At The Movies
Mar. 31, 2013 - This recap of the history of sucessful Bible and Christian-themed movies explains that there is a new surge of interest (and profit) in
this genre. "Noah" was the biggest financial success since Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" ten years ago. There was, however, serious opposition from
Christian groups that objected to the un-biblical elements of the film.
In fifth place, last week's surprise opener, "God's Not Dead," had another big week-end.
At this pace, it could easily clear $50 million as it plays into the Easter holiday weekend, a
robust result for any independent film, let alone one explicitly geared toward a Christian audience.
"Son of God," meanwhile, has earned $57.9 million over five weeks.

Meanwhile, "Son of God" is still drawing crowds and staying in the top ten this weekend. It is showing on 2,129 screens and has garnered $53.6 million so far.
The article says this looks like the year that "Hollywood finds religion." "Noah," the controversial big budget film will be released next Friday,
"Heaven Is for Real," will begin showing on April 16, and others are coming later this year including Ridley Scott's "Exodus," "Last Days in the Desert" and "Mary."
