We live in perilous times. As a nation, we are fighting terror abroad and at home. Families are struggling to stay together while the institution of marriage is being challenged in our courts. Our government is paralyzed by partisan gridlock, powerless to revive our anemic economy. But Christians aren’t powerless! And we don’t have to be anemic. But we first need one special thing before we can truly change the world. ... So what’s the secret? Find out with Pastor Doug Batchelor ...

Gazing on the panorama of 2010, I can only marvel at how the Lord has led and blessed the ministry of Amazing Facts. I praise God for what you and I have accomplished together this year. Please join me for just a moment to reflect on “what God has done” (Numbers 23:23). —Pastor Doug Batchelor

The recent story of the trapped Chilean miners has many profound, touching spiritual parallels in our lives. God has sent Jesus, the Light of the world, down into our dark planet to bring us up to the mansions He has prepared. Together with Amazing Facts, we are also on a great rescue mission to save millions of souls imprisoned in hopeless darkness. They are trapped in the “horrible pit” of sin. We must send them the hope of heaven—before it is too late for them!

The Lord persistently peruses His wandering prodigal children. Pastor Doug knows this from personal experience. While he never did hard time, as a rebellious teenager, he was locked up in jail seven different times! He knows what it means to stare at old graffiti on cinderblock walls and wonder if you’ve just wasted your life.
But God can reach prisoners. And He’s using Amazing Facts and you to do it. You’ll love these wonderful testimonies of lives that were changed behind bars!

Remember when God called Jonah to preach in Nineveh? At first, the prophet just ran away! But after that memorable detour through the fish, Jonah finally obeyed and preached in the “exceedingly great city.” And the power of the Word brought such a tremendous revival that God spared the entire city from imminent destruction!In these last days, God has called His people to bring salvation to the cities once again. Are we going to run away like Jonah—or are we going to obey the will of God?

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. But it isn’t just natural disasters, economic woes, or rampant immorality that leads to this sense of urgency — it is also the prophetic and increasing final movements of the gospel! 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 …
