NEW RELEASE: "A Lamp in the Dark: The Untold History of the Bible"
Since our last newsletter, in which we revealed the upcoming release of our new documentary, “A Lamp in the Dark,” we have had repeated inquiries about ordering the DVD. We are excited to announce that the film is finished, and is in the process of duplication even now.
We expect to have copies within the next 2 to 3 weeks. In the meantime, we are offering the DVD for sale with the understanding that buyers must please allow at least 3 weeks for delivery. Also, we are posting a series of TRAILERS for the film, so our supporters can preview the work.
A Lamp in the Dark is an exciting new documentary that unfolds the fascinating and “untold” history of the Bible, revealing critical information often withheld or overlooked in modern histories. Enter into a world of saints and martyrs battling against spies, assassins and wolves in sheep’s clothing.
Throughout the Middle Ages, the Papal Inquisition forbade biblical translation, threatening imprisonment and death to those who disobeyed. Learn the stories of valiant warriors of the faith, such as John Wycliffe, William Tyndale, Martin Luther, the ancient Waldenses, Albigenses and others who hazarded their lives for the sake of sharing the light of the Gospel to a world drowning in darkness.
Once the people were able to read the Bible and had the Word of God in their hands, the world was turned upside down through the Protestant Reformation. In response, Rome would launch a Counter Reformation to destroy the impact of the Reformers, including the bibles they produced.
The Counter Reformation
We sincerely believe that Rome’s Counter Reformation is one of the most important subjects to be studied by Christians today. As we show in the film, the pope commissioned the Jesuit Order to lead the movement, and it has never ceased to function. Learn the influence of the Jesuits during the translation of the King James Bible, during the Civil War, in Nazi Germany; and especially how they have been exposed in modern times.
Ignorance of the Counter Reform has enabled Rome to deceive millions through the Ecumenical Movement, the World Council of Churches, the Emerging Church movement, the current Interfaith Council with Tony Blair and Rick Warren, and the overall seduction of Biblical Christianity. Some researchers even believe the Counter Reformation is the real secret behind the European Union and the New World Order. Throughout the film, we show how the struggles of the past continue to impact current events, and are a guiding influence in the march toward globalization.
The Bible: Enemy Number One
Not surprisingly, at the heart of all this conflict is the Holy Bible. The Word of God was the weapon of choice for the Reformers, who subdued whole kingdoms by preaching the Gospel and exposing the idolatry of Rome. As a result, the scriptures became a key focus for the Jesuits in their attempts to conquer the world for the Pope, and bring mankind back into the Dark Ages.
But do the deceptions of Rome continue today? And how does this impact the Bible?
What to Expect
“Lamp” was filmed on locations in England and Belgium, and features never before seen interviews with leading Bible scholars, including David Brown, Roger Oakland, Alan O’Reilly, D.A. Waite and others. Also included are chief curators from the British Library in London, Erasmus House in Belgium, and the William Tyndale Museum in Vilvoorde, where Tyndale himself was burnt at the stake.
This ground breaking documentary is also filled with rich visual graphics and dramatic re-enactments of key historic events.
Included in this 3 hour DVD:
1) The history of the early Church, with the warnings from Jesus and the Apostles about “grievous wolves” and apostasy.
2) The alleged “conversion” of Constantine the Great and development of the Roman Church.
3) How the Inquisition began for the purpose of silencing Christians and outlawing the Bible.
4) The Bible translations of John Wycliffe, William Tyndale, the Great Bible, the Geneva Bible, and finally the King James Version.
5) The Protestant Reformation and the reasons behind it.
6) Key doctrines confronted by the Reformers (i.e. inspiration of scripture, salvation, transubstantiation, veneration of Mary, and papal claims of authority).
7) Rome’s Counter Reformation with the founding of the Jesuit Order in 1540. Included is the history of the Council of Trent, the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, and the dreadful Jesuit oath.
8) The Jesuit plot of 1825 to “sieze” control of the Bible.
9) The Vatican’s involvement with the Critical Text used by seminaries in the 20th century.
10) Rome’s fully documented (and largely unknown) influence over modern biblical translations.
A Witnessing Tool
A Lamp in the Dark is also a great witnessing tool for salvation, since it begins with the witness of the Gospel in the first century, and then throughout the history of the Bible, unfolds some of the key doctrines taught by the Reformers, such as repentance from sin and justification by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
Twenty Christian authors write on various topics, including: Nuclear Armageddon, Pandemics and Emerging Diseases, Global Governance, Collapse of Financial Institutions, Surveillance Society, Prophecies of Doom, The Coming Persecution of Christians, Middle East War and the Antichrist – to name a few.
Included in this book is a chapter from Christian J. Pinto on “The Church and Secret Societies.” We believe this chapter should almost be required reading for all believers in America, especially those who are swept away with “patriot Christianity.” This chapter shows from historical records what the real faith was of certain key revolutionary founders, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine, and John Adams; testing their beliefs against the Word of God.
The information in this chapter will undoubtedly be shocking for some, but is vital for Christians in this country to maintain a holy walk of faith.
This new book is edited and published by Tom Horn of Defender Publishing. Tom has become a friend of ours and is a sincere brother in the Lord. Much of his work focuses on the Alien/UFO connections and how they relate to Bible prophecy. The full title of this latest work is: “Twenty Experts Advise You On How to Overcome the Most Frightening Issues You Will Face This Century.”
The Emerging Church Series
- DVD 4 Part Set $49.95
Roger Oakland has given a series of presentations on the Emerging Church movement, explaining in detail its influence on the churches in America. The four part series is explained as follows:
Part One: “Man’s Spiritual Journey”
Description: Throughout biblical history, Satan, the god of this world, has had a plan to deceive man. When man turns away from God and His Word, he will first begin to trust in his own reasoning and then turn to the gods (the fallen spiritual realm).
In The Emerging Church-Part One: Man's Spiritual Journey, Past, Present and Future, Roger Oakland presents documentation to show that Satan's three-legged stool plan, which was introduced at the Tower of Babel, is being reintroduced today. This plan is setting the world up for a one-world government, a one-world economy and a one-world religion just as Bible prophecy reveals will take place in the last days.
Part Two: “Road to Rome”
Description: According to Emerging Church proponents, the present postmodern generation can only be enticed to embrace Christianity through experiences and ideas which stimulate the senses. The experiences they recommend seem to be the same ones that Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches have always provided.
In The Emerging Church-Road to Rome, Roger Oakland presents documentation to show that many worshippers are being drawn into the Roman Catholic New Evangelization program without being aware of it. Icons, incense, candles, sacraments and images are preparing the way for the revelation of the Roman Catholic Eucharistic Christ.
Part Three: “Road to Babylon”
Description: Central to the emerging church is the idea that one can get closer to God through contemplative mystical practices that are rooted in an experience-based eastern (remove mystical - redundant) religious spirituality. These practices have been introduced to both mainstream and evangelical Christianity through Roman Catholic monks and priests who promote what they call spiritual disciplines (which were originally practiced20by mystics and the Desert Monks of the third century).
In The Emerging Church- Road to Babylon, Roger Oakland addresses this fast growing emerging church movement, showing how it is seducing this generation and leading it toward a false one world religious system and a utopian kingdom of God that emerging proponents say will be established here on earth by human effort.
Part Four: “Proclaiming the Gospel in the Midst of Last Days Apostasy”
Description: Bible prophecy indicates that the last days before Jesus Christ returns will be characterized by a time of great deception. Based on current trends, it appears that the one world government, the one world economy and the one world religion predicted could soon be here. However, in the midst of this scenario, God is calling Bible-believing Christians to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ as our only hope to the whole world.
In The Emerging Church - Proclaiming the Gospel in the Midst of Last Days Apostasy, Roger provides the documentation to show we are living at the very time that the last days spiritual "strong delusion" is underway. While documenting the dangers and pi tfalls of the purpose-driven, emerging, and contemplative Christianity, Roger encourages Bible believing Christians to boldly stand for the truth and to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.
