I came across Frontline Missions clips on youtube and my comfortable, Christian life was shaken to the core. I’ve ordered the DVD set from Christianbooks.com and then later came across their site that offers streaming options. Before the DVD’s get here, I streamed the Every Tribe video of Cambodia, Laos & Vietnam. This is must see for all Christians. As John Piper warned, “Beware of watching these dispatches if you don’t like being moved and inspired and shaken out of the ruts of your life.” Because you will be — all three of what John Piper said.

Frontline Missions International works for the advance of the Gospel – watch as workers advance the Kingdom of God in the most difficult places. See the Gospel changes lives. You can also order the DVD’s from the Frontline Missions store.

Their prayer:

that Dispatches will magnify our God. It will unite our hearts with our brothers and sisters in different parts of the world. It will awaken us out of our comfortable Christianity. It will expand our vision of the King and His powerful Gospel.

4 Episodes are available for streaming as linked below:

Southeast Asia – Islands on the Edge

West Africa – I Once was Blind

Ethiopia and South Sudan – Father, Give me Bread

Cambodia, Laos, & Vietnam – Every Tribe

All 10 episodes are available via DVD.

Frontline Missions Social Media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram

 

 

American Gospel does not hold back; the camera pans back to the outer boundaries of auditoriums at Hinn crusades, where desperate parents cradle diseased children, ignored, unwanted, and unhealed. We watch this, and we hear Justin Peters testify to this experience personally, and we cannot help but feel both sadness and righteous anger—Christ’s own anger. The money-changers are still in the temple, still making God’s name a mockery. – Owen Strachan, ‘American Gospel’ Blows a Hole in the Prosperity Gospel, TGC, Jan 17, 2019

2 Timothy 4:3-4 (ESV)

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.

Trailer to American Gospel: Christ Alone

1 Hour Version available to view free on YouTube. The full film is highly recommended. Share with your friends and family. The Gospel IS this important where we must speak up for The Truth that saves sinners and out against false teachers taking on the name of Christianity and trampling the Cross of Christ. Pray for your loved ones that the Holy Spirit will open their eyes to these false teachers. And that they come to a saving faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

“Every day, Christians in the most dangerous places on Earth are working to advance the gospel [of Jesus Christ] at any cost. These front-line workers have been interrogated, beaten and arrested for sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. Yet they boldly continue in God’s work. Please consider supporting these faithful Christian brothers and sisters in prayer. When you commit to pray regularly for one year, [Voice of the Martyrs] will send you a card with the name and photo of a front-line worker so you can keep it in your Bible or another location as a reminder to pray.” Voice of the Martyrs, February 2019

10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. Matthew 5:10-12 (ESV)

12 Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13 while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it 15 and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:12-17 (ESV)

1 Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored, as happened among you, 2 and that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men. For not all have faith. 3 But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. 4 And we have confidence in the Lord about you, that you are doing and will do the things that we command. 5 May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ. 2 Thessalonians 3:1-5 (ESV)

As Christians, God calls us to renew and guard our minds. The enemy prowls around looking for any opportunity to cause us harm. But we have the Power of The Holy Spirit living inside of us and He has given us the best tool to help us – His Word, The Bible.

Along with reading The Bible, we pray, listen to good preaching and connect with other believers in the Body of Christ.

If you find that you are renewing and guarding well during the day (i.e. while awake), but find that your mind is a battleground while you sleep, there are two excellent apps that I recommend you take into your sleeping hours:

Why these apps?

  • The Study Bible allows you to have The Bible read to you, even when the phone is locked.
  • John MacArthur is one of the most faithful teachers of Biblical truth. And he presents the Word in a very teachable manner, while allowing you to get deeper into your understanding of God’s Word.
  • The Grace To You App is not only a rich history of sermons by topic or scripture, but also includes the Grace Stream, which allows you to jump into a sermon already in progress; like a radio. This also will continue to play while the phone is locked.

These apps are a great resources to easily help you renew and guard your mind any time of day or night.

13 Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, 15 but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” 17 And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one’s deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, 18 knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. 1 Pe 1:13–19

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 1 Pe 5:8

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Ro 12:2

If you are missing your local Christmas Services in person, you are covered with multiple options from local and national broadcasts to live (and sometimes prerecorded) Internet streaming. Check your local TV programming for what is available in your area. Charles Stanley, Grace To You, and Turning Point are usually broadcasting nationally or online.

Bethlehem does record their services and I’ll be able to catch the service in a day or two once posted online.

Merry Christmas!
