In this powerful message, Pastor Doug touches on the heart of a very real threat facing the church in the last days — Satan’s plan to neutralize the transforming power of the gospel by diluting it. His ultimate deception is such a powerful illusion that, in the end, many professed Christians will call out “Lord, Lord” only to discover they are hopelessly lost. How is Satan diluting the gospel today, and how can we avoid this tragic fate?

The Bible says, “Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth; to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people; (Revelation 14:6). Someday, every person in the world will have the gospel message preached to them — then Jesus will come. We are so close now, but we must earnestly keep working for that day … and embrace the world with the ever-lasting gospel. Read more from Pastor Doug!

As the clock of history moves relentlessly toward its final hours, Amazing Facts has never felt a greater sense of urgency for the cause of evangelism than now.

And now God has empowered us to go even further as a beacon of truth to more people in more places than ever! He has given Amazing Facts a powerful new outreach tool that is a giant leap forward in the proclamation of the end-time message …

Jerry attended a Bible prophecy series presented by an Amazing Facts evangelist and was won over by the power of God's Word and the love of Jesus. Following his baptism, he was inspired to attend AFCOE, where he learned to share the gospel anytime, anyplace, and with anyone. Today he is now back in his home church and has already conducted his own evangelistic meetings. As a result, even more lives have been changed by this dynamic domino effect of evangelistic power!

On January 9, Eureka, California, experienced a 6.5 earthquake. That’s huge, but because the epicenter was 10 miles deep and 20 miles away, damage was minimal. Just three days later, Port-au-Prince, Haiti, experienced a direct seismic hit.Does the Bible have anything to say to us during times likes this? Pastor Doug takes a closer look ...

An Amazing Fact:
On July 23, 1983, Air Canada Flight 143, a Boeing 767, ran out of fuel at 41,000 feet on its way to Edmonton. When the aircraft’s cockpit warning sounded to indicate a fuel problem on the left side, the pilots assumed that a fuel pump had failed and turned off the alarm. A few moments later, a second fuel alarm sounded. Soon both engines, starving for fuel, went silent, terrifying the 63 passengers. The nearest landing site was a closed airbase at Gimli, Manitoba, 20 miles away. The pilots didn’t know the decommissioned runway was being used that day as a drag racing strip and was full of cars, campers … and people. Miraculously, the crew was able to safely glide the jumbo jet to an emergency landing. Although the nose wheel collapsed, no one was hurt. The subsequent investigation revealed that someone had miscalculated the fuel because the airline had recently adopted the metric system in place of the imperial system.Neglecting the basics of flying a plane can be utterly fatal! That's why before a good pilot takes to the air, he or she will typically visually inspect the plane and go through a preflight checklist. Well, every once in a while, we need to do the same thing with our faith! How long has it been since you reviewed a basic checklist on your spiritual health?

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!
