Monday will be our 5th anniversary being on the air. It amazes me how far we have come in such a short time. Sometimes I would like to take credit for what has happened, but I know that I have just been a spectator watching God work.
Fortress of faith is a partnership and you, our listeners, are a major part of it. Without your support we would not be where we are. By the way, today we printed out all of the letters with the receipt for what you have given and you will be receiving them shortly.
Let me tell you about some changes that are coming as we start our 6th year on the air. We are making some major changes to our website. We also have about 5 writing projects that I am working on.
We are rewriting our evangelism course, How To Engage Muslims With The Gospel. I designed it to be a 4 hour course as I travelled to churches. I contains a 90 page lesson book. We have had about 2,000 people go through the course.
This course, along with our other efforts, have resulted in nearly 80 Muslims coming to Christ. This alone makes everything worth while. I pray the we will see many more Muslims leave Islam and come to Christ as our ministry grows. I can only talk to so many Muslims personally. If I can train 50,000 people to be prepared to answer the questions that Muslims will throw up against our faith how many Muslims could be saved? We are rewriting the course to bring it down to 3 hours.
I am praying that God will send me an assistant that can help set up a new branch to our ministry called Missions to Muslims. Pray with me on this because I don’t feel I can start this until I get the right person.
Our goal with the course is to make videos that churches or individuals and purchase and use to train themselves and others. We also hope to make it available online.
Let me tell you some things that are happening our our website. First of all we are revamping our online store. It will be easier for you to order products and it will be easier on our end to process orders and get them out to you quicker. We are using a whole new software system and this means that we will have to work out the bugs before we go live with it. Even though we are trying to find all the bugs, there will probably be some even after we go live so bear with us and let us know about any problems you see. The online donations section will be smother and easier for you to use.
We are going to have a “members only” part of the website for those of you who are supporters of this ministry. We will have things available for you that won’t be available to everyone else. Those of you who are part of are regular giving programs like our Army of Ten, our Sponsor a Day, and Project 365 will have access to things that will not be available to the general public.
I have 8 to 10 powerpoint presentations I use in churches. We are going to make some of these available to download with my notes so you can use them to teach others. This will be great for pastors and Sunday school teachers.
We are also working on a 6 week Sunday school course on refuting Islam, dealing with the problems we face, and exposing Islam for what it really is. It will deal with how to evangelize Muslims. It won’t be as in depth as our Engaging Muslims With The Gospel course, but it will teach the basics so people can be prepared to talk to Muslims.
Those who are regular supporters will have access to this course. We will also be selling this course to those who are not regular supporters. Hopefully we will be able to get it into book stores, and it will be available on Amazon.
We hope also to be producing more DVDs.
We are redesigning the website to make the material easier to find. We will be adding an FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section to the site. For example, I just received a question in my email; “Does the Qur’an command killing of non-Muslims?”The answer to that question is, Yes it does!. I know that Muslims are telling us that it doesn’t. They are telling us that Islam is a religion of peace. They say that there are no such commands and if there are, it is when Muslims are protecting themselves. This is a bunch of hogwash and is part of Islamic deception. Do they really think we can’t read the Qur’an for ourselves?
Let me give you a couple verses out of the Qur’an:
Sura 2:191 “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from wherever they have turned you out and al-fitna (unbelief) is worse than killing.”
This verse is explaining that as long as there is unbelief Muslims are to continue murdering non-Muslims. They are not to stop until all unbelief is eradicated from the earth.
Sura 2:216 “Fighting is prescribed for you.”
Sura 4:89 “Slay them wherever you find them.”
Sura 9:36 “Fight the idolaters utterly.”
Some might say that I am taking this out of context. I am not! These verses are referenced in the Sharia law book as the basis for jihad. It also quotes the most famous verse in the Qur’an:
Sura 9:29 “Fight those who believe not.”
Don’t believe Muslims when they say the Qur’an does not prescribe violence. You can see from these and other passages, that the Qur’an does tell Muslims to carry out jihad on non-Muslims for all time as long as there is unbelief.
These are just some of the things we have planned for this coming year. We expect it to be an exciting year.
