New Evangelicalism: The New World Order
by Paul Smith

Like cascading dominoes, the intentional departure from believing the Bible is inerrant has plunged the church of the 21st century down the treacherous slippery slope of accommodation and compromise.

* Why have so many evangelicals identified themselves as new evangelicals?

* What is the relationship between Fuller Seminary, the Purpose Driven Church, and the Emergent Church Movement?

* How is the Emergent Church push for globalization harmonizing with the new world order in these prophetic last days?


Addressing these and many more questions with riveting case studies coupled with staggering and sobering documentation, the author unfolds the shocking progression of ideas that were birthed in a nest of aberrant church beliefs.

Living on Borrowed Time
  by Dr. David Reagan


This book answers many questions concerning the second coming of Jesus including fulfilled prophecy, understanding the season we are in and the signs of the times, and perhaps the most convincing sign of the Lord's soon return.


A unique feature of the book is a prophecy forum composed of 22 Bible prophecy experts who reply to 11 questions concerning the biblical signs of the times that are supposed to signal the imminent return of Jesus. Over 300 pages!

The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent
by Dr. Erwin Lutzer


Islam is on the rise all over the West, including America. In this compelling new book, bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges Christians to see this as both an opportunity to share the gospel and a reason for concern.
 We have now reached a tipping point--the spread of Islam is rapidly altering the way we live. These changes are cause for alarm, for they endanger our freedoms of speech and religion.

 I have been praying for several days concerning just what the Lord would have me to say in this year-end letter.


First, we have been so blessed by the outpouring of love and concern we've received due to the passing of Melanie's father, Dale, just a few days ago. Our grieving process continues but, as I reminded those who attended the funeral, there is also an undergirding sense of peace in knowing that someday ahead, there is a reunion coming (I Thessalonians 4:13)! What comfort and hope that we who know Him have! "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" (I Corinthians 15:55)!!!


As I looked ahead to 2013, twelve months ago I wrote, "These are uncertain times but we surely serve a God of certainty!" If times were uncertain last December, how much more are they today? Trouble abounds on the world stage. Iran, Egypt, Syria, Libya, North Korea, South Sudan, plus the Obama alienation of our once stable allies are all of concern abroad. Then the scandals here at home such as Benghazi, NSA, IRS, and those oft repeated, infamous words, "If you like your doctor and your health plan, you can keep them." All of this and I haven't even mentioned the rise of Islam, the New Age, the cults and occult, and the perverted Emergent Church movement.


These events are indications of the "birth pangs" mentioned in Matthew 24. But they are all also signs that the world is running out of answers and when that happens, men begin to look for God and the people who know Him. Yes, these "perilous times" will likely pave the way for many souls to be saved.


As each more incredible and disturbing event unfolds around us, Melanie and I remain resolute on how to accomplish what God called us to do many years ago. Though Mordecai's words to Esther are often quoted, we know that we are truly here "for such a time as this" (Esther 4:14). As our mission statement says, "This ministry exists to see the lost saved and the Church changed!" That's our calling and it hasn't changed.


I believe that every Christian has a role to play in God's plan. Perhaps you aren't able to go on the mission field or work in full time ministry. Regardless, you can share in the battle and the rewards by standing with us. And each year, the last week in December proves to be a pivotal time to help us plan and then fund the outreach and projects we'll undertake for the next six months or more. In short, your year-end gifts are crucial to the success of the ministry.


Besides financing the distribution of materials, the shooting and producing of the new DVDs we have planned, and the purchase of needed equipment, your gift to Take A Stand! also allows me to continue my associated radio outreach with the skilled team of "Understanding the Times" Radio, headed by friend and colleague, Jan Markell. I am excited about the expansion of our UTT radio audience but it is an extremely costly venture. So understand, it is the funds raised here through Take A Stand! Ministries that allows me to dedicate the time needed to participate with the Understanding the Times team each week. That's an outreach that must continue - but none of it happens without your help.


I'm grateful for your prayerful consideration. Together we can make a greater impact than ever before in the coming months. Regardless of what you are able to do, be it $25, $250, $2500 or more, your partnership enables us to reach around the world and challenge many with truth and the Gospel message. Every gift counts!


We appreciate your love, care and partnership as we reach all we can in 2014 for the Lord Jesus!


God bless you!
