The Mandate contains powerful salvation testimonies from Chinese scholars as well as incisive articles relating to biblical civil government, economics, education, and business. These relevant topics are presented in a systematic format to build a solid biblical worldview in the fertile minds of our friends from overseas. It is our hope to teach Chinese international students the principles that will help them to reform their society when they return to their homeland.

FACTS ON CHINESE INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
There is no question that the Chinese students studying in America today will one day be the leaders of China in every conceivable field. The Mandate is having an impact on the future leaders of China. The prospect of sending out this new breed of reformers back to China – with no language barriers, no financial barriers, no cultural barriers and no closed doors – staggers the imagination!
The following are some facts about the strategic significance of reaching mainland China’s future leaders:
Almost 23 percent of the world’s population lives in China.
Nearly 50,000 of China’s most distinguished university students are presently studying in the United States.
Of all the international groups studying in the U.S., campus ministry leaders all agree that mainland Chinese students are the most open to the Gospel message.
Most Chinese students realize that the Chinese government has lied to them about nearly everything.
Our U.S. universities are attempting to reeducate these precious visitors with a whole new set of humanistic lies.
If God’s Church does not reach these future leaders, a whole new generation could be subject to a cruel life of tyranny.
Here’s what some Chinese international students are saying about The Mandate:
“I’ve been in the United States one year. I’ve never set foot in a church before and never heard the Gospel message before. I really loved reading The Mandate.”
“I liked the articles by Chinese scientists who are Christians. I always thought Christianity was the antipathy of science. I’m happy to learn that a person can be both a scientist and a Christian.”
“I had no idea that the basis for the U.S. Constitution originated from the Bible.”

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981
Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.
The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.
“…a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion
This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.
Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.
“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.
