For people who don’t follow or even believe in the Creator God and Savior of mankind as revealed in the Bible, the current state of the world is bringing the consideration of Almighty God into their reality.
Psalm 25 verse 8-13 speaks clearly to us if we have ears to hear the revelation: “Good and upright is the LORD; therefore, He shows sinners the way. He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them His way…. Who is the man who fears the LORD? He will instruct him in the path chosen for him. His soul will dwell in prosperity, and his descendants will inherit the land.”
The Lord has repeatedly reminded me of two of the pivotal Biblical motivations He used to drive me into the truth-telling, discovery-focused work of service that has used my meager abilities for over 45 years now. The first is Isaiah 58:12 – “you will raise up the age-old foundations, be called the repairer of the breach, and the restorer of streets in which to dwell.”
Does it seem sometimes that the challenges and pressures of the confusing world around us crowd out the really important things that we can do to eternally influence the lives of the people in our lives?
I’ve got an invitation for you to share with your friends today that I think you’ll want to make special note of, so you might want to be ready to write down some details that I’ll share more coming up in our program today.

Are you ready to help people rediscover America’s covenant with God?
America’s people have been dumbed down deliberately by a secular and demonic agenda to make us all ignorant of truth, ignorant of common sense, ignorant of Scripture, and particularly ignorant of our own history. We should all know the fact that God’s prophet clearly prophesied that His own people (“My people” He said) “are destroyed for a lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). When we speak that message, it can be a prophetic wake-up call for those who might be listening closely to what we’re saying. But another problem is that many, in the true Ekklesia of God, lack the mature personal mentors who can coach them to be guided by the Holy Spirit. We all need that guidance to discern what is true, and to learn from the events and lives of the past that are able to witness to the incredible grace and power of God.
We’ve been praying fervently that God raise up a generation of warriors willing to fight in this historic battle against wicked forces. Those forces are operating through satanically inspired enemies of all that is good and Godly. And it takes all kinds of equipped and faithful soldiers to fight in the many fronts of this war.
Are you in yet? If you are, you better know why you fight. And it’s not about you. You know very well that soldiers are called into battle to defend the defenseless. If selfless courage doesn’t motivate you to fight the battle raging today, whether on your knees or with your strengths and skills, then you are simply accommodating the enemy by your slackness.
The war being fought in our world today has come out in the open. It’s come out in the open because the enemy has been emboldened. It’s a war between two kingdoms and we should know it better than most. Evil wickedness is on the rampage against God’s kingdom of truth and light.
I have often had well-meaning Christians ask me how some unbelievers can hold on so stubbornly to their evolutionist theories in support of their unbelief. When they are faced with the challenges that there really are no genuine evidences to validate evolutionism, why do so many intelligent people stick to it? That’s a good question. (more…)
** This personal letter by Dennis Petersen is intended to provide some background for understanding the times we are living in now. In light of the Lord’s providential guidance in his own life and the opportunities and challenges that lay before us, the question is really: “what adventurous journey awaits as we walk in the works that God has prepared for us to accomplish (as noted in Ephesians 2:10)?”
Dear Friend, If you have not yet read the brief letter I recently sent by email to invite you to join my personal team of prayer supporters, you can see it at the end of this background letter (below).
Why am I continuing the mission of creation teaching?
Do you remember that scripture, “to whom much is given, much is required?”
When I began to realize back in the 1970s that the Lord was supernaturally guiding my steps to accomplish things that I would never have attempted in my own plans, He jolted me with the scripture in Proverbs 16:9, “The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.”
I planned to continue a thoroughly enjoyable career in the museum profession as a trained history museum curator and administrator. When the Holy Spirit sovereignly opened the opportunity for me to detour for a year to study the Bible full time in Canada, I had no idea that would begin a whole new life to influence many people for Christ through apologetics teaching, writing, and preaching ministry.
