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.

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.”

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?
Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!
Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.
Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification
In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.
By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).
