Jan Marcussen publishes a six-page newsletter twice a month with color pictures which is also published online in PDF format. The newsletter always features relevant quotes from Ellen G. White.

The newsletter chronicles the advancement toward a Sunday law and the advancement of the Three Angels' Messages warning against that law.

Cultural references[edit]

Marcussen's National Sunday Law was in part the inspiration for the 2004 low-budget action movie, The 4th Beast: Mask of the Antichrist.[3] Director Nathyn Masters, an alum of Chicago's Columbia College recounts[4] how he desired to create an endtime Christian action film with a post-tribulation scenario as an alternative to such pre-tribulation films as Left Behind.[4] In a similar vein is the action novel Megiddo Crux, by Brian Neumann, whose plot is set in motion by the September 11th attack.[5]
