Books, DVD's Links on Discipling the Nations
In Discipling the Nations we must fulfill both aspects of the Great Commission, the evangelistic mandate (to redeem man) and the cultural mandate (to redeem the earth).
In Must The Sun Set On The West, Vishal Mangalwadi, India’s foremost Christian intellectual, examines how the West became just, free, and prosperous compared to the rest of the world and concludes that the Bible is the soul of Western Civilization.
The power of the gospel to transform individual lives has been clearly evident throughout New Testament history. But what of the darkness and poverty that enslave entire cultures, even nations? Have Christians underestimated the power of God’s truth to transform entire societies?
In Discipling Nations, Darrow Miller builds a powerful and convincing thesis that God’s truth not only breaks the spiritual bonds of sin and death, but can free whole societies from deception and poverty. Discipling Nations will challenge, reenergize, and equip Christians everywhere who labor to see “His Kingdom come, His will be done.”
“The world is looking for scientific, medical and economic solutions to the Goliaths of our day such as Poverty, HIV/AIDS and Ideological Conflict. However, I am convinced that the real solution is found in a changed mind that will usher people into new attitudes, behaviors and structures. The Disciple Nations Alliance offers a church-based solution capable of combating the Goliaths and transforming nations.” Gary Edmonds

No country is too poor, to filled with crime, too divided by war, or too dark to be changed. God has given us basic principles that are keys to every problem we face in the twenty-first century. The answers lie between the covers of one book – the Bible.
The Book That Transforms Nations demonstrates how, together, we can use the Bible to change the whole world. Loren Cunningham’s fifty years of ministry have taken him to the world’s poorest and neediest as well as to kings and presidents. Here he offers a solid reason to hope and work for a better future.
The Old Testament Template by Landa Cope
Are you wondering why the Christian faith has become weak and ineffectual in dealing with issues of politics, economics, beauty, the family and daily issues of life?
Throughout history, people of faith have thought and acted in ways that influenced communities and nations affecting development of public education, worker’s rights, economic development, the concept of a free press, help for the victimized and disenfranchised. Martin Luther is recorded to have said that a gospel that does not deal with the issues of the day is not the Gospel at all. Within these pages you’ll discover the Biblical thinking that addresses the issues of the 21st century in an effective and redemptive way.
Landa Cope has put the challenge of the principles of The Old Testament Template to leaders in politics, business, and church on every continent of the world. Now you can discover how a vital, relevant, and effective Biblical Christianity can bring a righteous influence back into the public arena.
Landa Cope is committed to presenting a Biblical perspective on the professions as well as a comprehensive Biblical approach to issues in the public forum. She is the Founding International Dean of the College of Communication for Youth with a Mission’s University of the Nations and is the Director of a University of the Nations campus near Geneva, Switzerland. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Art and Education and a Master’s degree in Humanities and International Studies, and is also the author of Clearly Communicating Christ, a book focused on Jesus-style communication.

The Reformation Manifesto by Cindy Jacobs
Paperback. 240 pages
Link to purchase:
Bestselling author and teacher Cindy Jacobs gives a visionary, prophetic message to the church: The western church is in a place of comfort and complacency while the Enemy is making progress. God is calling His church to a radical change. Personal revival is no longer enough, so Cindy Jacobs is following in the tradition of great reformers such as Martin Luther, passionately calling dedicated believers to possess their biblical destiny to bring about a new reformation that will change whole nations. By first embracing this vision on a personal level, readers will then be a part of the coming change that will operate on a much larger scale. She urges believers to capture a vision for discipling entire nations through prayer and actions, clearly spelling out what Christians’ responsibility is and how to accomplish this through all facets of their life, including their church, community, work, business, and government. This message will be of particular interest to intercessors.

Taking Time to Wait on God and other Teachings by Derek Prince
Derek Prince (1915–2003) was born in India of British parents. Educated as a scholar of Greek and Latin at Eton College and Cambridge University, England, he held a Fellowship in Ancient and Modern Philosophy at King’s College. He also studied several modern languages, including Hebrew and Aramaic, at Cambridge University and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
While serving with the British army in World War II, he began to study the Bible and experienced a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ. Out of this encounter he formed two conclusions: first, that Jesus Christ is alive; second, that the Bible is a true, relevant, up-todate book.
Please be inspired by this great teaching with Derek Prince, where in the last episode he mentions a move of God in Australia . Please click here

Several Videos on the Universe, our body and going inside the atom.
This one is three half minutes on the Universe.
Some will remember this video. This famous photograph, “Earthrise” has been on such places as the cover of TIME magazine. Did you know it almost didn’t happen. It was Christmas Eve, 1968.
This video takes you right into the module with the three astronauts and you hear them as they see Earth from outer space for the first time. (It begins occurring around 3 minutes, 38 seconds.) A picture like this is not likely to happen very often!
View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons.

We never get tired of these amazing views from the International Space Station, but this one has it all: a silvery Moon setting into the Earth’s atmosphere, the dazzling Milky Way rising into a brilliant sunrise, airglow of all colors, popping lightning, shimmering aurorae, and incredible views of the stunning space station and our gorgeous planet.

A Creation Moment two minute radio spot.
Daniel 4:37 “Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all of whose works are truth, and His ways justice. And those who walk in pride He is able to abase.”
That infant in the manger is God’s voice to mankind. And despite appearances, He is the King of the universe.
The world waited 4,000 years to see the fulfilment of God’s promise to restore humanity to Himself. That promise was first given to our first parents, Adam and Eve, when their sin separated them and the creation from God. Through the next 4,000 years, the faithful never grew weary of their belief that God would keep His Word. Hundreds of times over those 4,000 years God repeated His promise of a Saviour.
John’s Gospel tells us that the same Word that became flesh for our salvation was the Word through Whom all things were created. This Word was the instrument Who created the incredible variety of living things that we see on Earth. He created the human brain and the petal of a rose. In but a day, before going on to greater things, He created the countless billions of stars and energised them with enough power to shine for thousands of years. And who are we, for we cannot even measure the energy those stars put out in only one second of their history!
Yet now we see Him, an infant clothed in our form. Here lies the King of the universe unable even to ask for nourishment. Why? The answer is no mystery. He was the Instrument who made us. We are eternally lost without help. So He would be the Instrument of our salvation – at any cost! We can only stand in deep reverence at such love that would come among us to rescue us from our own sin.
I thank You, dear Lord Jesus Christ, that You spared nothing, not even the loss of heaven and giving up Your life so that You could rescue me. Help me to have a heart and mind like Yours so that more might know of the forgiveness of sins You have won for us. Amen.

“A Warrior Against Political Correctness”
Peterson is definately not (yet!) a Christian. He readily blasphemes Jesus name, is an evolutionist and not at all (yet!) convinced about the Resurrection. He says he needs three years to think about it!
Peterson has extraordinay insight into the culture wars especially on how the Marxist ideolgy has infiltrated universities and government.
He is credited in saving people, particularly men from suicide.
Politically, Peterson has described himself as a classic British liberal. He is a philosophical pragmatist. In a 2017 interview, Peterson identified as a Christian, but in 2018 he did not. He emphasized his conceptualization of Christianity is probably not what it is generally understood, stating that the ethical responsibility of a Christian is to imitate Christ, for him meaning “something like you need to take responsibility for the evil in the world as if you were responsible for it … to understand that you determine the direction of the world, whether it’s toward heaven or hell”. When asked if he believes in God, Peterson responded: “I think the proper response to that is No, but I’m afraid He might exist”. Writing for The Spectator, Tim Lott said Peterson draws inspiration from Jung’s philosophy of religion, and holds views similar to the Christian existentialism of Søren Kierkegaard and Paul Tillich. Lott also said Peterson has respect for Taoism, as it views nature as a struggle between order and chaos, and posits that life would be meaningless without this duality. “
