About available formats


What does it mean to be human? Philosophers, theologians, sociologists and psychologists have attempted to understand the nature of mankind for ages. Their conclusions often contradict each other which lead to confusion rather than clarification. Clearly Man is a very complicated social being. The Bible tells us that man is “fearfully and wonderfully made.”
  • How do we understand our makeup and does it make a difference?
  • What is the meaning of being “created in the image of God?”
  • What causes our natural responses and can we change this behaviour?

Join Ron Matsen from the Executive Briefing Room of the River Lodge, New Zealand as he explores the subject of our “Human Nature” and gives insight into the architecture and accountability of all mankind.

“The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.” Proverbs 9:10

But how do we balance the awesome majesty due to the Creator and Ruler of the universe with the gracious family intimacy that is now available to us through the completed work of Christ?

What does His Holiness demand of us, personally?

What are the hazards of failing to render the Almighty His due, while availing ourselves the riches committed to us of the precious promises in His Word?

How do we deal with these paramount issues facing us daily in practical challenges?

Chuck Missler grapples with these wildly misunderstood tensions with down-to-earth frankness and Biblically-based candor.

The Gospel: The Message of Reconciliation


by Ron Matsen 




Price R 179.00





One of the last instructions given by Jesus to the Church was, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel.” (Mark 16:15)

The fact is most Christians don’t know how to share their faith effectively. Sadly, many of the people they know in the world today are wandering around, lost and without hope, having never heard the wonderful Message of Reconciliation.

How would you answer the question, “What must I do to be saved?”

What are the essential facts, demands and promises of the Gospel?

Why are we told to evangelize?

Join Ron Matsen in the Executive Briefing Room of the River Lodge, New Zealand as he explores the subject of “The Gospel – The Message of Reconciliation” and gives practical insight into how to share the essential doctrines of salvation.

Researchers successfully block colon cancer tumor growth

‎Yesterday, ‎July ‎22, ‎2016, ‏‎5:57:40 PMGo to full article
Over one million men and women are living with colorectal cancer in the USA.Researchers in the USA have discovered that reducing the amount of the L-glutamine amino acid in the body can block the growth of colorectal cancer tumors in mice. The first clinical trials on humans are due to begin this summer. Recent research has established that cancerous tumors rely on L-glutamine to survive and grow. In this latest study, scientists found that a subset of colorectal cancer cells containing a genetic mutation called PIK3CA -- a commonly occurring mutation in cancer cells -- were particularly high consumers of L-glutamine when growing.

Scientists hunt 'anti-evolution' drugs in new cancer fight

Scientist prepares protein samples for analysis in a lab at the Institute of Cancer Research in SuttonBy Ben Hirschler LONDON (Reuters) - Scientists are opening a new front in the war on cancer with plans to develop "anti-evolution" drugs to stop tumor cells from developing resistance to treatment. Britain's Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), one of the world's top cancer centers, said on Friday its initiative was the first to have at its heart the target of overcoming cancer evolution and drug resistance. In the same way that bacteria evolve resistance to antibiotics, cancer cells also change to evade the medicines used to fight them, leading to "survival of the nastiest".

Pre-stroke lifestyle tied to long term risk of more strokes, dementia

By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) - Having heart disease risk factors like high blood pressure before suffering a stroke may influence a person’s risk for a second stroke or dementia years later, according to a new study from the Netherlands. In recent years, medication advances have helped cut health risks in the year following a stroke, but after that the risk of a second stroke or dementia remains elevated for at least five years, said senior author Dr. M. Arfan Ikram from Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam. “As more stroke patients survive in the short term, automatically more patients survive into the long term,” Ikram told Reuters Health.

Yale researchers developed a way to picture synapses in a living brain, something that until now has been studied mostly during autopsies. (Science Translational Medicine via AP)WASHINGTON (AP) — The brain's nerve cells communicate by firing messages to each other through junctions called synapses, and problems with those connections are linked to disorders like Alzheimer's and epilepsy. Now Yale University researchers have developed a way to picture synapses in living brains.

A 180-area multimodal human cortical parcellation on the left and right hemisphere surfaces of the human brain is pictured in this handout imagegeBy Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Neuroscientists acting as cartographers of the human mind have devised the most comprehensive map ever made of the cerebral cortex, the part of the brain responsible for higher cognitive functions such as abstract thought, language and memory. Using MRI images from the brains of 210 people, the researchers said on Wednesday they were able to pinpoint 180 distinct areas in the cerebral cortex, the brain's thin, wrinkly outermost layer made of so-called gray matter. The map could assist in the study of brain maladies such as autism, schizophrenia, dementia and epilepsy, and shed light on the differences between the brains of people with such conditions and healthy people, the researchers said.

Only extreme sitting linked to increased heart disease risk

‎Wednesday, ‎July ‎20, ‎2016, ‏‎5:04:38 PMGo to full article
By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) – Being sedentary, at least in moderation, is unlikely to cause heart disease, according to a new review of past research. Based on their analysis, researchers conclude that only very high levels of sedentary time - more than 10 hours per day - are linked to an increased risk of heart attack, stroke or heart disease-related death. Compared to sitting for less than three of one’s waking hours each day, more than 10 hours of sedentary time was tied to an 8 percent increase in risk for developing heart disease.

Eating oily fish may boost bowel cancer survival: studyPeople with bowel cancer may improve their survival chances by eating a lot of omega 3 fatty acids found in oily fish like tuna and salmon, a study suggested Wednesday. Analysis of data from more than 170,000 people in the United States revealed that among 1,659 who developed bowel cancer, there was a strong correlation between higher omega 3 intake and lower risk of death, it said. "Compared with patients who consumed less than 0.1 grammes (0.004 ounces) of omega 3 fatty acids daily, those who consumed at least 0.3 grammes daily after their diagnosis, had a 41 percent lower risk of dying from their disease," said a statement on the findings published in the British journal Gut.

Government forces and allies have surrounded Madaya since July 2015 as part of Syria's six-year civil war, and the town of 40,000 people came to symbolize suffering after photos of emaciated children and reports of residents forced to eat leaves emerged this year. Sixty-five people have died from malnutrition and starvation in Madaya in the past year, according to a report by the U.S.-based Physicians for Human Rights and the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS).

Redhead gene may boost skin cancer risk: study

‎Tuesday, ‎July ‎12, ‎2016, ‏‎6:50:01 PMGo to full article
A gene variant carried by people with red hair, pale skin and freckles may boost skin cancer risk even without exposure to the Sun's rays, researchers said Tuesday. The findings, published in the journal Nature Communications, are based on a genetic analysis of skin cancer tumours from more than 400 people. It revealed that tumours from people with a redhead variant of the MC1R gene had 42 percent more mutations -- the equivalent of 21 years of additional Sun exposure in people without it.

Skin cancer risk for freckly red-heads equivalent to 21 years in sun

‎Tuesday, ‎July ‎12, ‎2016, ‏‎5:10:38 PMGo to full article
By Kate Kelland LONDON (Reuters) - Having genes that give you red hair, pale skin and freckles increases your risk of developing skin cancer as much as an extra 21 years' exposure to the sun, researchers said on Tuesday. The researchers said even people with one copy of the crucial MC1R gene - who may be fair-skinned but not have red hair - have a higher risk. "It has been known for a while that a person with red hair has an increased likelihood of developing skin cancer, but this is the first time that the gene has been proven to be associated with skin cancers with more mutations," said David Adams, who co-led the study at Britain's Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.

Existing options include standard antidepressants and psychotherapy.

Research links widely used additive to food allergies

The preservative tBHQ -- used in cooking oils, chips, margarine and chicken nuggets -- could trigger allergies to eggs, milk, nuts and shellfish.The rise in food allergies could be linked to an additive by the name of tert-butylhydroquinone, or tBHQ, widely used as a food industry preservative in goods such as cooking oil, nuts, crackers, waffles and bread products, according to a researcher at Michigan State University, USA. Cheryl Rockwell, an assistant professor of pharmacology and toxicology in the College of Human Medicine, has been investigating tBHQ (tert-butylhydroquinone,) and its effects for nine years. This synthetic additive derived from benzene is often found in industrially prepared products like cooking oil or chicken nuggets.

Thumb suckers less prone to allergies: New Zealand study

Researchers have found that being exposed to microbes as a child reduces your risk of developing allergiesInfants who suck their thumbs or bite their nails appear less prone to allergies as adults, New Zealand researchers have found. Researchers then followed up by giving them allergy skin prick tests when they were aged 13 and 32. The allergy level fell to 31 percent for children who did both.

A Novartis logo is pictured on its headquarters building in MumbaiNovartis AG's cheaper version of Amgen Inc's blockbuster arthritis drug Enbrel is highly similar in potency and safety to the original, according to a review by Food and Drug Administration staff. The review, posted on the FDA's website on Monday, comes two days ahead of a meeting of outside advisers who will discuss the drug and recommend whether it should be approved. The FDA is not obliged to follow the recommendations of its advisory panels but typically does so.

Cancer hospital advertising triples since 2005

‎Monday, ‎July ‎11, ‎2016, ‏‎9:38:56 PMGo to full article
By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) - Between 2005 and 2014, U.S. cancer centers upped their spending on ads targeting the general public, with 890 centers spending $173 million on ads by 2014, according to a new analysis. Spending more than tripled since 2005 and was highly concentrated among a small number of cancer centers, said study coauthor Laura B. Vater of Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis. Spending on advertising does not necessarily reflect quality of care, however, the authors note.

Thumb-suckers, nail-biters less likely to develop allergies

A city worker bites his nails outside the London Stock Exchange in Paternoster Square in the City of LondonBy Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) - Children who suck their thumbs or bite their nails are less likely than others to have allergies later, according to a new study. According to the “hygiene hypothesis,” early life exposure to microbes may decrease the risk of developing allergies, which may explain why kids with oral habits have fewer allergies as adults, although this idea is still controversial, the authors write. In this observational study it was not possible to prove that thumb sucking or nail biting causes a reduction in allergies, said senior author Dr. Robert J. Hancox of the Dunedin School of Medicine at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand.

The 200 meters butterfly champion, whose father Bert became a media sensation at the London 2012 Games for his exuberant reaction to his son's gold, said he hoped they would be accompanying him to Brazil. "My mum Geraldine has breast cancer which has returned since her remission in 2010," Le Clos, who beat American Michael Phelps to gold four years ago, said in a statement.

A person receives a test for diabetes during Care Harbor LA free medical clinic in Los AngelesBy Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - A study examining the genes of more than 120,000 people from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas has offered the clearest picture yet of the genes that drive type 2 diabetes. The study, published on Monday in the journal Nature, puts to rest a decades-long debate over the genetics that influence the risk of diabetes, which affects one in 10 people over the course of their lifetime. "There was a whole furious debate that arose about this," said Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, one of more than 300 scientists collaborating on the work.

There are many diverse anticipations concerning the Coming World Leader, commonly referred to as “The Antichrist.” This study will explore the Biblical descriptions with the specific expectations of the globalists, Islam, the Vatican, Freemasonry, and others.
• Will he be a Nephilim?
• Why is the Vatican openly preparing to receive an “alien” visitor?
• Will he be a resurrection of Nimrod? Is his DNA a factor?
• What are the expectations of transhumanist technologists in this regard?
Clearly, the Bible has much more to illuminate this issue far beyond the popular conceptions; and yet the composite perspective will astonish most. Furthermore, is there a climactic cosmic deception being prepared that, if it were possible, “it would deceive the very elect”? Jesus commanded us, “Be not deceived.” But, how?
How close are these events to our current horizon?
Join Dr. Chuck Missler and Ron Matsen in an intensive summary of some of the Strategic Trends that will impact all of us.

Angels, Volume III: The Denizens of the Metacosm



by Dr. Chuck Missler



Volumes 1 & 2 of this series explored the finite limits and boundaries of our physical reality. After probing the limits of both the Macrocosm and the Microcosm, we discovered that our reality is but a shadow of larger reality, the Metacosm, a domain of extra-dimensional transfers and other paradoxical phenomena.


Volume 3 explores the contradictory behavior of UFOs and other demonic deceptions characteristic of the End Times. Explore these topics in more detail in either this two-hour briefing, Angels Vol 3: The Denizens of the Metacosm or our six-hour extensive study, Expectations of the Antichrist.



• Are they real?

• Why do UFOs enjoy a military classification higher than our most sensitive weapons systems?

• Why are the events which occurred in Roswell New Mexico still classified after 66 years?

• Why is the Vatican openly preparing to receive an Alien Visitor?

• How should a Christian deal with the occurrences of Alien abductions?

• Jesus admonished us to “Be not deceived.” How?

• How do we prepare for the deception which, “if it were possible, would deceive the very elect”?


Join Dr. Chuck Missler in the Executive Briefing Room of the River Lodge, New Zealand, exploring the misinformation, (and deliberate disinformation) about the various “denizens of the Metacosm” and other insights of the invisible war unfolding on our near horizon.

"In seasons of severe trial, the Christian has nothing on earth that he can trust to, and is therefore compelled to cast himself on God alone. When no human deliverance can avail, he must simply and entirely trust himself to the providence and care of God. Happy storm that wrecks a man on such a rock as this! O blessed hurricane that drives the soul to God--and God alone!"
