An Exciting TV Opening in the Capital of the World

URGENT: An exciting TV opening in the capital of the world!

From the desk of Pastor Doug Batchelor


An Amazing Fact: New York City was the first capital of the United States. In 1789, it was also the site of the first inauguration of its first president, George Washington. But in 1949, with the construction of the United Nations headquarters in Manhattan, New York truly became the capital of the entire world.


Jesus told the apostle Paul, “Be of good cheer, Paul; for as you have testified for Me in Jerusalem, so you must also bear witness at Rome” (Acts 23:11). Why Rome? Because in Paul’s day, all roads led to Rome, the global center of power and commerce. The Christian truth established in Rome would spread its influence throughout the empire.


New York City today is what Rome was in Paul's day. What other city represents our planet’s diverse cultures and is a center for the world’s commerce, communications, fashion, advertising, entertainment, technology, and finance? New York City has been rightly dubbed the capital of the world!


You can now help proclaim God’s last-day message in this giant metropolis through a last-minute opportunity to broadcast truth on WLNY TV. We’ve been offered a terrific rate at a great time in the largest TV market in the USA. And it’s a powerful way to prepare hearts for our Prophecy Odyssey evangelistic series coming in September—and it’s being held in the Manhattan Center.


Is it worth our time and effort to conduct evangelism in and out of New York City? Yes!


Did it pay for Paul to do evangelism in Rome? You bet! By preaching truth before her powerful rulers, Paul ensured the gospel would spread throughout the empire. Even today, we read cherished books like Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon that Paul wrote from a dungeon in Rome.


People say that when you do something in NYC, it touches the world. I know it’s true because 25 years ago, Amazing Facts conducted one of our most successful evangelistic programs, The Millennium of Prophecy, from New York—and it's still touching lives today.


Likewise, during this pivotal time in history, standing at the world's crossroads and preaching truth will draw the attention of many to the three angels’ messages. You can help people know Christ globally by broadcasting the series through streaming and satellite. But you can also help people locally in the greater New York area.


Preparing Manhattan

Every farmer knows the importance of preparing the soil before planting. The hard ground needs to be broken up. There must be cultivation and watering before a rich harvest can be expected.


By broadcasting our messages through cable and over the air every Sunday morning at 11:00 on WLNY TV—a prime time for people looking for spiritual programming—you will prepare hearts for our fall Prophecy Odyssey outreach. Interest must be raised, and by putting Amazing Facts on this giant TV station, we will potentially plant gospel seed in more than 8 million hearts across New York and beyond.


I believe God opened this timely door now to share His last-day message with this new audience—it airs immediately after Catholic mass programming! It costs only $2,000 a week; that’s less than one and a half cents per person all year long. Your generous gift of $50 could help more than 3,000 searching hearts receive lifesaving truth through television. A kind gift of $25 will provide simple truths to 1,500 souls. And a capital-of-the-world-sized gift of $100 or $200 could help 7,000 to 14,000 people in this city hear God’s wonderful truth and receive Christ as their Savior.


Lisa wrote from New York to say, “How grateful I am for all I have learned since seeing your program.” So many more people in the Big Apple need to learn God’s last-day messages. Will you join me in sharing God’s truth from the capital of the world?


Guiding souls on the road to heaven,


Pastor Doug Batchelor

President, Amazing Facts International


P.S. This September, Amazing Facts will present Prophecy Odyssey from New York City. To prepare hearts locally and beyond, God has opened the door for our programs to be broadcast right now on WLNY TV. Television is a powerful tool to cultivate hearts to receive the seeds of truth. Your support of Amazing Facts TV evangelism will change lives. Thank you!
