The masters of deceit are Leftists with an agenda to take America down as she impedes the effort for global Marxism. These masters are in charge of much in our country--and they are in the Evangelical church as well. 

This is a stunning 90-minute expose' of their efforts which in a few years may be complete. People you trust may be a part of this agenda. Learn who they are and what their tactics are. For sure, they have your kids.

Join Curtis Bowers as he heads out again to expose the Masters of Deceit and their purposeful, premeditated, treasonous attacks on our freedom.

New book by Dr. Mark Hitchcock

Iran has repeatedly declared it intention to destroy Israel.  ISIS continues to gain ground, leaving a trail of death and terror in its wake.  And Russia is inserting itself into Middle Eastern affairs in a power play prophesied long ago.
ISIS, Iran and Israel is an updated edition of the book, Iran and Israel by prophecy scholar Mark Hitchcock, with all-new information on ISIS, Russian involvement in Syria and Iran, and the state of relations between Israel and Iran.  Hitchcock brings a strong biblical perspective to the latest conflicts.

 This is an eye-opening survey of where things stand and how it all ties in with Bible prophecy. He has an extensive chapter on America in prophecy as well.

Find the 237-page book here for $15 + $5 S/H.

Is There Time to Make America Great Again?

Had enough yet? Enough of "Campaign 2016." Enough of the boasting, pride, self-aggrandizement, me-centered rhetoric from almost 20 presidential candidates over the last year?  The Bible comes to modern day politics when you read II Timothy 3 in light of this year's election. Those who are lovers of self really wear on you. One almost wants to push the pause button and shut them up as we can conveniently do with online videos.
But U.S. presidential administrations are vitally important. Good people have watched the Barack Obama/Joe Biden/Valerie Jarrett Administration love all things Islamic and loathe Israel. Even Donald Trump asked a group of Jews recently why they continue to support the Left. "Someday explain to me what you are doing?" he said in a Times of Israel interview. The implied question was why are you risking the existence of your nation with Leftists who seek your demise?
This is not about endorsing a candidate or even naming a pro-Israel candidate in "Campaign 2016."  It is about the importance of this nation remaining an ally of Israel.  It is about listening to what each candidate says about the Jewish State and holding them accountable. Leftist candidates hate freedom and democracy and will never, ever stand with the Jewish state that represents the only democracy in an insane, on-fire Middle East. Leftists prefer tyranny over democracy. That is driven home in Curtis Bowers' brilliant DVD, "Agenda 2: Masters of Deceit."
The nations of the world are turning against Israel. But that's in accordance with an ancient biblical prophecy found in Zechariah 12:3. And Satan will use men like puppets to thwart the plan of God that has Israel playing the most prominent end-time role imaginable. 

Terry James, co-founder of the Rapture Ready website, writes, "Israel today stands in the bull's eye of rage. This is true in the case of being targeted by the Jewish state's perennial antagonists, the Arab and Persian Islamist enemies. It is true in the case of the entire international community, whose constituent nations see Israel as the congestive blockage to regional and world peace. 

"But it is the growing antagonism by United States presidential administration operatives that is most disconcerting while this beleaguered planet wobbles toward a time of unprecedented trouble."
There are consequences when a President leads a nation towards hostility and even abandonment of Israel. I document that in my 2014 DVD tracing how U.S. Presidents from Woodrow Wilson to the present occupant of the White House have dealt with her.   
This presentation isn't about promoting a political party. Democrats and Republicans came to her aid. Democrats and Republicans have plotted against her in the last 100 years. I began with Woodrow Wilson since he was in the Oval Office when the Balfour Declaration came about in 1917. It is the declaration that jump-started her push for statehood100 years ago.

Pro-Israel historians know Israel's re-birth couldn't have come about under Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He looked the other way during the Holocaust years.The Jews were an inconvenience. When he died in 1945, his Vice President, Harry Truman, would be proud to cast the first U.N. vote in May, 1948, for the revived state of Israel. He then loosened up immigration laws so that Jewish refugees could enter America post-WW2. 
But no administration has been the brutal hammer against Israel as has the Obama Administration.   Obama has spent his entire life surrounded by haters of Israel, from former Palestine Liberation Organization spokesman Rashid Khalidi to former Jimmy Carter National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, to pro-Hamas negotiator Robert Malley, to UN Ambassador Samantha Power (who once suggested using American troops to guard Palestinians from Israelis), to Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United Church of Christ.
As soon as he was in office, Obama compared the sufferings of the Palestinians to the Jews in the Holocaust. A year ago he even threatened to shoot down Israeli planes if they came against Iran's nuclear facilities. As my recent radio guest, Pastor J.D. Farag said on air, Obama has a satanic hatred of Israel.

There are consequences to a nation when its leaders have this sentiment. A popular campaign slogan suggests we will make America great again. That will never happen when our highest leaders seek Israel's destruction.
Some of these actions and statements by Obama and his cronies should have signaled to every Jew around the world that the long-time protector of Israel, America, was about to take a sharp left turn.
If history interests you and how God used American presidential administrations throughout Israel's short history, please consider my 2014 DVD, "U.S. Presidents and Israel: A Blessing or a Cursing?"  It makes for a great discussion with friends and small group members and ties in with our current presidential election focus.

Hear discussion related to this topic on our April 16-17 radio program with Pastor J.D. Farag here. It is titled, "Do We Have Time to  Make America Great Again?" and also deals with the cancellation of a replica of the Arch of the Temple of Ba'al in New York City. It is not possible to make America great ever if, in fact, honor is being given to the Hindu goddess Kali and the demon god Ba'al.  The latter idea was withdrawn at the last minute.  

Find the DVD here for just $15 + $5 S/H in the U.S. Or call us M - F CST at 763-559-4444. The presentation is also found in our complete set of Fall 2014 "Understanding the Times" conference CDs and DVDs here.
