Nature & Purpose
Lamb & Lion Ministries was founded in 1980 as a non-denominational, independent ministry. The Ministry does not seek to convert people to any particular church. Rather, it seeks to lift up Jesus and draw people to Him as Lord and Savior.
The Ministry was established for the purpose of proclaiming the soon return of Jesus. We do not believe it is possible to know the date when Jesus will return. But we do believe it is possible to know the season of the Lord’s return, and it is our conviction that we are living in that season.
The message of the Ministry is directed at both believers and non-believers. To the unsaved, the Ministry says, “Flee from the wrath that is to come by fleeing into the loving arms of Jesus.” To believers, the Ministry says, “Commit yourselves to holiness as you await the appearance of your Blessed Hope.”
We believe that Jesus is the only hope for the world today. He is the Gospel — the “Good News.”
We believe the Church, as expressed through the local congregation, is the basic unit of God’s plan for the proclamation of the Gospel and the discipling of believers. Lamb & Lion Ministries exists to serve the Church in its effort to win souls for Christ and to disciple those who accept the Lord.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe in a literal interpretation of the Creation story as recorded in Genesis 1-3.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of Jesus, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, and in our redemption through His shed blood.
We believe in Jesus’ bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His imminent, personal return in the Rapture.
We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful men.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the saved unto the resurrection of life, and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe Jesus will return to reign over this earth from Jerusalem for a thousand years, bringing peace, righteousness and justice.
We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
A Testimony to God’s Faithfulness
“The Rock! His work is perfect, for all His ways are just; A God of faithfulness and without injustice, righteous and upright is He.” — Deuteronomy 32:4
When I think of God’s faithfulness, I am always reminded of a powerful personal testimony I heard years ago by Mr. James Watt who was serving at the time as President Ronald Reagan’s Secretary of the Interior.
Mr. Watt began his testimony by telling about how he had grown up attending both Baptist and Methodist churches. He said he never realized how liberal the churches were until he had a personal encounter with the Lord at a Full Gospel Business Men’s meeting in Washington, D.C.
“I would never have accepted the invitation to attend the meeting if I’d had the foggiest idea of what it was all about,” Watt declared.
He had gone to church for 40 years, and he had never heard the term, “Full Gospel.” Nor had he ever experienced an altar call. The churches he had attended were not evangelistic, and they were highly liturgical in nature.
Needless to say, the Full Gospel Business Men’s meeting came as quite a shock. First there was a lot of “riotous worship,” and then there was some “passionate preaching.” Watt felt very uncomfortable.
The feeling of uneasiness began to intensify as the speaker ended his presentation.
“Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus?” the man asked.
The question grabbed Watt’s attention, mainly because he had no idea what the man was talking about.
“Jesus said in John 17 that the essence of salvation is knowing God and His Son. Do you know Jesus? Really know Him?”
There was the question again. Watt had never heard anyone talk that way. As he wrestled with the question, the man began to explain that he was going to offer an altar call.
“If you want a personal relationship with Jesus, please come forward.”
The men stood and started singing. Watt was at a loss as to what he should do. “Surely he’s not talking to me,” he thought. “After all, I go to church every Sunday.”
The thought had hardly crossed his mind when he heard the speaker say, “Some of you go to church every Sunday, but you don’t have a relationship with Jesus.”
Watt was astonished. It was almost as if this fellow could read his mind.
“I know he can’t be talking to me,” Watt thought, “because I teach a Sunday School class.”
And then it happened again. “Some of you teach Sunday School,” the speaker proclaimed, “but you have no relationship with Jesus.”
Watt was really getting uncomfortable. He began looking around for the exit.
“He’s got to be talking to these other guys,” he thought. “After all, I’m a deacon and I tithe.”
“Some of you are church officers and you tithe, but you have never met Jesus!” the speaker declared. The words seemed to be spoken with thunder.
That was it. Watt could resist no longer. He went forward. The speaker prayed for him, and that evening, after 40 years of church attendance, James Watt met Jesus and accepted Him as his Lord and Savior.
The first thing Watt noticed spiritually in the days that followed was the deadness of his home church. There was no joy or enthusiasm in the worship. Watt’s soul was suddenly yearning to worship. So, he began to sneak around on Sunday evenings, trying to find a church where people really gave themselves to the Lord in worship.
He found one. It was Pentecostal. It was not the kind of refined church that he had always attended. He was afraid of being recognized, but he continued attending because the worship ministered to his spirit.
He soon discovered that the church had a special service on Friday evenings where people were given an opportunity to witness their experiences with God. He thrilled over the stories he heard, and before long, he decided to get openly involved. He just couldn’t contain himself any longer. He simply had to share what God was doing in his life.
He jumped to his feet and rushed to the front. “I’ve gone to church for 40 years,” he announced, “but I have known Jesus only three months. I’m discovering that He is still the same as the Jesus you read about in the New Testament. For example, I have discovered that He still performs miracles!”
Watt proceeded to share an encounter with a homeless drunk who was panhandling on the streets of Washington, D.C. “Instead of ignoring him or pushing him aside, I decided to share Jesus with him and pray for him. To my astonishment, he accepted the Lord, and he was instantly, miraculously delivered from his desire for alcohol. He’s here with me tonight!”
The congregation broke out in thunderous applause, and Watt returned to his seat triumphantly.
Then, Mrs. Johnson went forward. “I just want to say that I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior 20 years ago, and He has kept me for 20 years.” That was it. Nothing spectacular. Nothing to shout about.
Watt felt sorry for the lady. “Surely she can come up with something better than that,” he thought.
The next week, Watt arrived biting at the bit to share his latest experience with God.
“A friend of mine and I went to the hospital this week to visit a dear brother who was on his death bed, given no hope of recovery. We anointed him with oil and prayed for him, and I rejoice to tell you that he is here with us tonight.”
Again, a thunderous ovation.
And then came Mrs. Johnson. “I just want to say that I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior 20 years ago, and He has kept me for 20 years.”
Watt couldn’t believe it. Every week this woman gave the same dull, monotonous, uninspiring testimony. And so it continued week after week.
The Powerful Point
At that point in his testimony, Watt stopped. Tears welled up in his eyes, and he began to choke for words. Finally, after he had composed himself, he spoke the words that touched my heart — words I shall never forget.
“Folks, all that happened 20 years ago when I was new in the Lord and before I knew anything about walking with God. Tonight, I want to tell you that the greatest, most spectacular miracle of my life since my salvation is that God has kept me for 20 years.”
James Watt had discovered that Mrs. Johnson had a testimony after all.
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness.” — Lamentations 3:22-23
Remembering God’s Faithfulness
I have made that discovery as well. Day after day, week after week, month after month, and year after year, God has faithfully provided us with two things: opportunities to proclaim our message of the Lord’s soon return, and the resources needed to fulfill those opportunities. He has kept us, and He has kept us well.
I can remember when I did not have enough money to mail out a newsletter to only a couple of hundred people. In 2000 our income topped one million dollars for the first time.
I can remember when the entire ministry was in one bedroom of a small duplex. When I could cram nothing else into that room, and I decided to head down the hallway to take over the master bedroom, my wife said, “That’s it. You’re out of here!” Today we have a magnificent facility on five acres of land, and it is all paid for.
I can remember when I recorded radio programs on a cheap recorder I bought at Radio Shack. I had no mixing board because I couldn’t afford one. The programs were delivered to the station in Dallas without a musical opening or closing. The station was supposed to supply those. Sometimes that important need was overlooked. Today, we are blessed with outstanding digital equipment.
I can remember when I was the only staff member. I had to do everything — type letters, make phone calls, record donations, send out receipts, duplicate tapes, and keep the books. My wife, who is a first grade teacher, helped when she could. Today, I am blessed with a staff of over ten people who are dedicated to serving God. All of them love the Lord. All have been called by the Lord. I have been relieved of doing all the things that for years distracted me from my fundamental tasks of study, writing, recording, and preaching.
I can clearly remember the pre-computer days when all our newsletters were addressed by hand from a file of index cards. Letters were typed on a manual typewriter. Printed items for distribution were run off on a duplicator machine that would print no more than a hundred copies before the purple ink faded. Today we are blessed with a network of computers. With them we can easily manage our mailing list, and we can perform desktop publishing (without getting our hands purple from the ink!).
I can well remember the terrible “summer slumps” that plagued us during the first seven years of the ministry. Each year, during June, July and August, we seemed to be forgotten by everyone except the Lord. We would pray earnestly for a good December to make up the gap. The Lord always provided, but we went right down to the wire on several occasions — to the last day of the year! Today the summer slumps have evened out due to our Prophecy Partner Program that now includes over 2,500 faithful supporters. And, praise God, we ended yet another year in a row with all bills paid in full.
I can painfully remember many times when I was not faithful to the Lord, when I was not a good steward of my time and resources, when I blew opportunities and got in the way of what God was trying to accomplish. But the Lord has been faithful when I was faithless.
He has graciously sustained my health, blessed my work, and sustained the ministry. He has, in the words of Mrs. Johnson, “kept us for many years.”
Thank you, Lord, for your faithfulness!
“Know therefore that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments.” — Deuteronomy 7:9

The Ministry proclaims its message in a variety of ways. One of the most significant is through its weekly television program called Christ in Prophecy. This program is broadcast nationally over many networks such as DayStar, CTN, GOD TV and The Word Network. The television program provides commentary on national and international events from a Biblical perspective, showing that many of these events are signs of the times pointing to the soon return of Jesus.
The Ministry conducts meetings and seminars all over the country in all kinds of churches. The Ministry’s seminars focus on Bible prophecy. The meetings cover either prophecy or spiritual renewal or a combination of the two.
Other forms of outreach include resources such as topical teaching DVDs, CDs, MP3s, books, group study materials, a bi-monthly magazine called the Lamplighter, and the periodic Bible Prophecy Insights magazines and Bible Prophecy Insights videos.
Another form of outreach consists of pilgrimages to Israel which are conducted a few times a year by the ministry for educational and spiritual purposes.

Dan and Meg Price are missionaries to the Middle East who conduct their activities under the sponsorship of Team Expansion Ministries. Both of them are Arabic speakers who have devoted their lives to sharing the Gospel with Muslims in the Middle East. Their work, of course is highly dangerous, and not much can be said about the details of it.
History of Supporting Missions
Lamb & Lion Ministries has always had an interest in reaching people in other countries. During the 1980s two missions trips were made to South Africa, and the message of the Lord’s soon return was preached all over the country. Also in the 1980’s the Ministry collected and distributed thousands of Bibles, both new and used. Another aspect of foreign outreach in the 1980s was short wave radio. A special version of the Ministry’s radio program, “Christ in Prophecy,” was broadcast throughout Europe, Russia, and Africa.
It wasn’t until 1990 that foreign mission work became a major aspect of the Ministry’s outreach. Two things happened that year that made it very clear the Lord wanted the Ministry to put more emphasis on missions.
The first event was the opening of the door in Russia for the Jews to return to Israel. In the summer of 1990 Dr. Reagan visited Israel and witnessed the refugees arriving by the thousands at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv. At that time they were arriving at the rate of 2,000 per day, and they were allowed to bring only two suitcases each. They could not bring money or jewelry. In short, they were arriving in Israel penniless.
Dr. Reagan was deeply moved by what he saw. When he returned to the States, he told the staff of the Ministry that he felt like the Lord was leading him to try to raise funds to help provide relief to the refugees. The appeal was made over the Ministry’s radio program. God anointed it, and the money began to pour in. Before the year was concluded, the Ministry had raised almost $100,000 for the Jewish refugees!
The second crucial event of 1990 was a telephone call from a man of God in Toronto, Canada. His name was George Bajenski. He was a native of Poland, and he had a ministry in Toronto that was designed to raise funds to help the churches of Poland. While traveling across the United States visiting churches, he was given a set of tapes containing a series of sermons that Dr. Reagan had preached on prophecy in a recent meeting. He listened to the tapes as he drove home, and he decided to call the ministry and ask Dr. Reagan to come to Poland to preach the message of the soon coming of Jesus.
The result of these two events is that Lamb & Lion Ministry is heavily committed to foreign missions today. Since 1995 the ministry used almost 15% of its total income for outreach to people in foreign countries. This outreach has taken many forms: relief to Jewish refugees in Israel, fund raising for an orphanage in Mexico, the publishing and distribution of the ministry’s books in foreign languages, financial assistance to missionaries, and the provision of prophetic conferences and seminars.
In years past we provided more in cash donations and services to missions. All the ministries listed are ones that we send money to monthly.
How You Can Get Involved
From time to time we take on a special missions fund-raising project, like supplying Bibles, constructing a church building, or purchasing a vehicle or sound equipment. You can designate gifts for any of the ministries listed above. If you desire to make a gift to missions for us to use as we see fit, you can designate your gift for “Missions Outreach.” Note: Please keep in mind that special gifts for missions are not counted toward the fulfillment of a Prophecy Partner pledge.
We are closely associated with several other Bible prophecy ministries that we helped establish. We provide them with on-going financial assistance, and we cooperate with them on a regular basis to conduct Bible prophecy meetings, seminars and conferences. All these ministries are non-denominational in nature.
According to Prophecy Ministries
Don Perkins is the founder and director of According to Prophecy Ministries which is located in the San Diego, California area.
