An Amazing Fact: In the 13th century, Kublai Khan — the grandson of the mighty Genghis Khan — wanted to bring Christianity to his people. He sent a letter to the pope through merchants Maffeo and Nicolo Polo, the father and uncle of the famed explorer Marco Polo, to bring 100 priests to China in an effort to convert the nation. When the request reached Rome, the pope showed little interest. After the pleading of the Polo brothers, he reluctantly sent two Dominican monks to China. One died in route, and the other turned back discouraged. Historians now believe that had the Catholic Church seized the opportunity given to them, the religious makeup of China, the world’s largest atheist country, would be principally Christian today!

The famous American author Mark Twain once said, “I was seldom able to see an opportunity until it had ceased to be one.”  In other words, most people don’t recognize a golden opportunity until it’s out of reach.

Well, by God’s grace, Amazing Facts isn’t going to let that happen.  We’ve been blessed with an extraordinary opportunity that, with your help, can transform the eternal destiny of millions of more souls than we have ever been able to reach before!

An Amazing Fact: Scientists in Israel have successfully etched the entire Hebrew text of the Old Testament onto a tiny gold-plated chip that is smaller than a pinhead! These nanotechnology experts at the Technion Institute of Haifa say that the microscopic words were imprinted with a device called the Focused Ion Beam. As the machine blasts a beam of tiny particles (called gallium ions) at the surface, the gold atoms bounce off, exposing the silicon layer underneath, thereby causing the etching effect. This marvel has created the smallest Hebrew Bible in the world! Now ... what if we told you that Amazing Facts has developed a new way to condense an entire evangelistic series — all the powerful messages, all the intriguing charts and lessons, all the thrilling music — onto something you could fit in your pocket? Discover more about it from Pastor Doug!

A Cure for the Health Crisis

An Amazing Fact: Alexander Fleming’s accidental discovery of penicillin in 1928 was an historic event. Doctors realized this miraculous mold had the potential to heal from infection and save thousands of lives. The big challenge became how to isolate, purify, and mass-produce this wonder medicine. Progress was very slow. Even by March 1942, in the midst of WWII, half of the total American supply of penicillin was used on one patient! By June 1942 there was just enough U.S. penicillin produced to treat 10 patients. Then after much prayer and a worldwide search in 1943, a moldy cantaloupe discovered in a Peoria, Illinois, market was found to contain the highest-quality penicillin. Combined with a new fermentation process, this allowed the United States to produce 2.3 million doses of penicillin in time for the D-Day invasion — saving the lives of an estimated 12 to 15 percent of Allied forces! Today, Amazing Facts is already sharing the cure for sin; we just need to multiply it and get it out!

One thing that the healthcare debate has taught us is that Americans are passionate over this issue! Which isn’t that surprising when you consider that the healthcare crisis touches two of our most precious commodities — our health and our wealth. Now, see how the healthcare issue also has a lot to do with our spiritual well-being and the last-day message in this important message from Pastor Doug.

An Amazing Fact: The Northeast Blackout of 2003 was the most massive and widespread power outage in history. On the sweltering-hot day of August 14, at approximately 4:15 p.m., Ontario, Canada, and eight Northeast U.S. states lost all electricity. That evening, more than 50 million people battled the darkness. For up to 25 hours, the blackout paralyzed life, jamming traffic, closing businesses, and shutting down airports. Industry experts blamed the power loss on old, unmaintained grid connections. Nothing is more important than your connection with God. Your inner peace, your witness, and ultimately your salvation all depend on a solid relationship with Jesus. And this connection must be maintained or you will experience a major power failure and … the light will go out. Would you like to learn how to always be getting closer to the Lord?

Prophecy News ALERT!

An Amazing Fact: The Vatican is the world’s smallest country.  That’s right — country.  In 1929, under the terms of the Lateran Treaty, Vatican City was established as an independent state of 109 acres within Rome.  Less than 1,000 people live in this small country governed by the pope, who has absolute executive and judicial powers. Yet despite the tiny territory, 177 sovereign countries have formal relations with the Vatican.  That’s why it should not surprise us that Bible prophecy foretells that the pope will play a major role in the world’s final affairs.

On July 7, while the world was mesmerized with the spectacle of pop idol Michael Jackson’s flamboyant funeral, major prophetic events were transpiring in Rome virtually unnoticed. But Jesus told us to watch for the signs that point to His soon return (Mark 13:37). And have we just seen a whopper! Pastor Doug explains …

The Sun Is Setting on an Empire

An Amazing Fact: During the 18th century, at the peak of England’s golden era, it was often said that “the sun never sets on the British Empire.” This is because the country’s vast lands across the globe ensured that the sun was always shining on at least one of its numerous territories. Even by 1922, the empire still held sway over a population of about 458 million people and covered more than 13 million square miles. That’s approximately one-quarter of the world’s population and total land area! During this same time, England freely claimed to be a Christian nation, and it opened the world to Christian missions as never before. But now things have drastically changed.

The Son is setting over the English-speaking world — leaving millions in darkness! Yes … “the Son.”  Across England, Australia, Canada, and other Western nations, churches are empty, Bibles are neglected, and the light of Christ’s truth is being eclipsed by worldly unbelief. That's why Amazing Facts is putting a plan into action to reach a dying empire full of souls in darkness ...

An Amazing Fact: When the 16-year-old grandson of oil tycoon Jean Paul Getty was kidnapped in Rome on July 10, 1973, the billionaire hesitated paying the $17 million ransom demanded for his safe return.  In the midst of this tragedy, an Italian postal strike delayed communication.  Then an envelope containing a lock of the boy’s hair, part of one ear, and a threatening message was delivered to a newspaper.  They now only demanded $3.2 million.  Getty senior negotiated a deal and got his grandson back for about $2.8 million.  The grandson, Jean Paul Getty III, was freed in southern Italy on December 15, 1973.  His kidnappers were never caught. Kidnapping is on the rise around the world. More than 20,000 men, women, and children are held against their will by those seeking a criminal’s fortune. But this sobering statistic is nothing compared to the billions of souls who are now being held captive by sin. Jesus gave His life to ransom them … but will His people deliver the message before it’s too late?

An Amazing Fact: All across North America, a growing number of major newspapers are going out of business.  With the current recession and people increasingly turning to TV and the internet for news, traditional newspaper subscriptions have tumbled.  Many of these failed news institutions have existed over a century, such as the Rocky Mountain News and Seattle Post-Intelligencer.  Other major papers, such as the Miami Herald, Boston Globe, and San Francisco Chronicle, are currently on life support.  Sadly, as they consider their last editions, they must soberly write their own obituaries as they print their final headlines.

Now discover what tomorrow's headlines are bound to say as Pastor Doug digs into current events and uncovers some intriguing signs of the times!

The Most Dangerous Mission Field on Earth!

An Amazing Fact: When missionary John Williams landed on the New Hebrides Islands in 1839, cannibals immediately killed and ate him. Many other missionaries who followed met with the same fate. So when John G. Patton announced in 1858 that the Lord had called him to do mission work in the New Hebrides, his friends were concerned. One warned him, “You will be eaten by cannibals!” Patton replied, “If I can but live and die serving and honoring the Lord Jesus, it will make no difference to me whether I am eaten by cannibals or by worms [in the grave].” By the time John died 50 years later, nearly the entire population of the New Hebrides had been radically converted by the teachings of Jesus!

If you were asked to think of a dangerous mission field, what would pop into your mind? Many people would imagine some dark exotic jungle swarming with poisonous bugs and snakes, with the hypnotic sound of pagan drums beating in the distance. But the most dangerous mission field on earth could be a lot closer than you imagined!

An Amazing Fact: The Old Testament contains about 60 different prophecies, with more than 300 verses that foretell the first coming of Jesus. These prophecies identify specifically where the Messiah would be born, what tribe He would come from, and even when He would begin His earthly ministry. They also tell us how a friend would betray Him for 30 pieces of silver, that He would die by crucifixion, and even that His killers would gamble for His clothing. Yet despite the dramatic and explicit fulfillment of all these incredible prophecies, most of the Jewish nation rejected Jesus.

When Jesus Christ came the first time, blaring trumpets and exuberant crowds should have been hailing His arrival. But instead ... there was silence in the streets. Now as Jesus prepares to come the second time, is it possible that God’s people are about to get it wrong all over again?

The Sony Pictures film Heaven Is for Real has been billed as an inspirational movie event for everyone, but it is specifically targeted at Christian audiences. Yet what if, lurking inside its feel-good packaging and uplifting message about heaven and eternal life, it contained a message that directly contradicts the very teachings of the Bible?

Når en fallskjermhopper går mot døråpningen i flyet og hopper ut vet han at det er ingen vei tilbake. Han har gått for langt og hvis han skulle ha glemt å spenne på seg fallskjermen, kan ingen ting redde ham, og han vil med sikkerhet rase mot en skremmende død. For en tragedie! Men det er noe enda verre som kan hende med en person.
Study Guides (Norwegian)
Å være forelsket endrer alt. For eksempel leste en ung kvinne, som gikk på et engelsk litteraturkurs på universitet, en stor bok. Hun fant hele greia veldig kjedelig og kunne knapt nok konsentrere seg om det hun leste. Men så møtte hun en frapperende ung professor på universitetet, og de ble hurtig forelsket. Snart oppdaget hun at hennes kjære var forfatteren av den boken hun hadde strevet slik med. Den natten sov hun ikke, men pløyde gjennom hele boken, for deretter å utbasunere: “Dette er den beste boken jeg noen gang har lest!” Hva endret hennes perspektiv? Kjærlighet.

Stoler du på Gud ... på alvor? Sannheten er at mange mennesker kan si ja, men viser det ikke i handling. Og det som verre er, fordi de ikke stoler på Ham, stjeler de faktisk fra Ham!
