December Impact 2015

by Frank Wright, Ph.D.

Please allow us to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and a happy 2016!

We live in a world—and in a nation—in dire need of salvation and transformation. At the first Christmas, Jesus Christ entered the world to bring exactly that—and the same transformation He brought 2000 years ago is still available today! In this issue of the Impact Magazine and Devotional, we help you celebrate the incarnation and birth of our Lord Jesus Christ through a series of powerful articles reflecting on Christ’s coming into the world—and what He accomplished on our behalf—as well as encouraging daily devotions from the pen of Dr. Kennedy and Jerry Newcombe.

As we prepare to enter 2016, we see a pivotal year ahead for our nation. The time to change course is running out. Because of our founder, Dr. D. James Kennedy, this ministry is known for being a prophetic voice of biblical truth and a godly worldview. And that is needed more now than at any time in our history. America will head to the polls to elect a new president and an entirely new Congress. Irrevocable decisions will be made by the American people. This nation is at the edge of the cliff—morally, economically, and strategically. Will we plunge over it into irreversible ruin? Or will we repent before going to the ballot box?

D. James Kennedy Ministries plans to be on the forefront of urgently informing people about the issues from a biblical perspective. In 2016, we will be heralding the biblical truth on a number of key issues, including:

  • the value of life
  • Planned Parenthood
  • runaway government
  • a tyrannical judiciary
  • the threat of ISIS and radical Islam
  • widespread sexual anarchy
  • a deficient, theologically impoverished Christian church
  • and many more.

This is not a time to be hiding away in our cloisters, concerned only about our own personal spiritual lives. This is a time when we need to be proclaiming the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Word of God to our entire nation—and even our world!

The picture is grim but far from hopeless. God’s sovereignty over His creation remains supreme, with the Gospel still being the power of God unto salvation. And He stands ready to prosper the faithful proclamation of His truth—indeed it is that truth that is the only hope for mankind. You and I can make a crucial difference in the future of this nation. With eyes of faith, a bleak situation becomes hopeful—and even exciting! Just as things seemed hopeless while Jesus was in the tomb, only to be completely turned upside down when he was resurrected, I believe we could be on the precipice of a massive renewal and revival in America. God loves to bring life out of that which is dead. And He brings dead sinners—and dead cultures—back to live through His Word.

Many of you have supported Dr. Kennedy’s work for decades. You knew his passion for the Gospel and his love for America. We have not and will not abandon the mission of D. James Kennedy Ministries, but we need your support to continue this work.  Much of the church is in full retreat.  But we will not retreat—not if you will stand with us. 

Will you stand with us at this key moment in the history of America? Will you help us to expand our reach, and increase our ability to tackle the keystone issues of our day? We want to be able to face our children and grandchildren with a clear conscience, assuring them that we have done everything possible to pass along to them the inheritance our forebears gave us. We have a platform for proclaiming God’s truth on these issues; we have a platform for proclaiming the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. God’s Word changes things, and we are in a unique position to be able to profoundly affect this nation. But we need your help—and God’s blessing—to be able to do it.

To end the year, some exceedingly generous friends of this ministry have established a $100,000 Matching Gift. That means that they will match your donation to our ministry through December—up to $100,000. My friends, this is an incredible opportunity to double your impact as you help us move forward into this pivotal new year.  If you give $100, we get $200. If you give $1000, we get $2000. And if you give nothing—we do not get the matching gift. So please, consider giving a generous donation and effectively doubling your impact before December 31st.

To thank you for your generous donation, we will send you the brand new devotional from Dr. D. James Kennedy and Jerry Newcombe, Strength for Today. Dr. Kennedy left us a deep repository of soul-changing, life-transforming truth in his sermons and teachings, and Jerry has brought forward riches from that treasure trove, never before printed, that are now included in this new book. This beautiful 365-day devotional will encourage you with daily reflections drawn from God’s Word as you begin 2016. Strength for Today is just off the presses, and has never been offered before.

If you can give a generous donation of $75 or more, we will send you the Strength for Today devotional as well as the two-DVD (or two-CD) DVD set, What’s So Amazing About Jesus?, featuring two of Dr. Kennedy’s most powerful evangelistic messages. In fact, we will send you two sets--one to keep, and one to give away. Your faith will be reinvigorated by these powerful gospel messages, and by giving a set to someone else, you could be helping that person to find eternal life in Christ. Please, help us to make an impact by giving generously in this Christmas season.

 

God bless you, and God bless America,
