Unleashing the Lion of Truth
An Amazing Fact: Acting like the “special forces” within your system, white blood cells are continually at war—seeking and destroying the bacteria that invade your body. In fact, one healthy white blood cell can wipe out 20 times as many enemy cells! And by practicing a healthy lifestyle, we can actually encourage our immune system to release these little warriors to prevent most diseases.
Just as our white blood cells fight off disease, so truth will always neutralize error.
And no doubt about it, we are living in a world in which there is full-blown war between God’s saving truth and the devil’s destructive lies. And the momentum is rapidly increasing!
For instance, this past year, Hollywood has been pumping out grossly inaccurate films that distort vital Bible themes. Noah, Moses, and even Jesus have been woefully misrepresented. And an unsuspecting public is being actively deceived about God!
Yet, even though these big productions are distorting Scripture, you can know that God is still successfully combating error with truth through your support of Amazing Facts …

Truth Still Triumphs
I wish you could have been with me in Albuquerque during Landmarks of Prophecy. I am overwhelmed with praise to the Lord for the many miracles we witnessed—miracles of transformed lives that you played a vital role in. Together we unleashed the lion of truth!
Night after night, we watched the faces of hundreds of people, hungering for truth, light up with joy after hearing His Word! One lady who attended said, “I’ve been going to church all of my life and never understood these wonderful Bible truths. Where have you been?”
While more than a thousand truth-searching souls attended the meetings in Albuquerque, tens of thousands more were watching around the world. Hundreds of Bible questions came in from as far away as Ethiopia, Norway, Hungary, Hong Kong, Tonga, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand, Iran, Malaysia, Malawi, Nicaragua, and Australia!
One man watching with a church group in Arizona said he had always struggled with the teaching of an eternally burning hell. But after hearing the Bible truth during Landmarks, with tears in his eyes, he said that for the first time in his life he can love and trust God!
Not only did the meetings reach new souls, but many existing church members had their faith revived. Ralph writes, “I left the church when I was 18, but I found my way back to Christ through these meetings.”
Time Is Running Short!
From all the prophetic indicators in the world around us, I believe the coming of the Lord is drawing near. That’s why it is so important, while these precious days of mercy linger, to reach as many people as possible with lifesaving truth. Have you been reading the headlines?
• In 2015, Pope Francis will make his first visit to North America—and is now the first pope ever invited to address a joint session of the U.S. Congress.
• And according to The Boston Globe, Pope Francis believes in “Healing the Wounds of Christian Division.” Think of Revelation 13:3! In fact, in 2017, on the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses, Evangelicals will approach the pope to sign a “Joint Declaration of Faith in Unity for Mission.”
And what is much of God’s church doing during this historic time? Sleeping! That’s why it is so important that we, together, take release the lion of truth now! “They shall walk after the Lord. He will roar like a lion!” (Hosea 11:10). This is why I need your help!
Next Great Strides in Evangelism
Naturally, producing a live, 22-part series was a very expensive undertaking, and this has sapped much of Amazing Facts’ outreach resources. But the testimonies we’re getting tell us that not only was it well worth it—it was truly the Lord’s will!
Now I am convinced our best defense against Satan’s sophistries is to unleash the lion of truth as often and freely as possible. So in the new year before us, we must get copies of these powerful, fresh, truth-filled programs out to as many prime television outlets as possible. It’s also essential to have these programs translated to reach countries like China.
The best news is that we can know that God will help us! Isaiah 55:10, 11 promises that whenever His Word goes, it will accomplish His purposes. I have seen firsthand how unleashing the lion of truth can liberate people from lies and spiritual confusion. “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).
What a tremendous year 2014 has been! But our work is far from over. If Amazing Facts is pledging to keep the gospel work going strong, will you please commit to stand with us, month after month, week after week, and day after day, sharing the everlasting gospel as far and wide as possible in 2015?
Before this year ends and the next begins, I’m asking you to please help shore up our budget so we can boldly move forward together to unleash the lion of truth in 2015. As we near His return, the work will only get harder—and your faithful commitment, in your heart and prayers, is all that stands between the grip of Satan and someone’s eternity.
Remember, friend, whatever you send by the end of the year is tax-deductible on your 2014 returns—BUT EVEN MORE IMPORTANT—it will have an eternal return because it will be used to neutralize the error all around us and reach a soul for Jesus.
Don’t wait to respond! I promise we will make your eternal investment in souls count!
Working together for Jesus,
Pastor Doug Batchelor
