Israel, Iran, the Bomb And the Spring Equinox By Gary Stearman The headline was riveting: “Revealed: Israel Plans Nuclear Strike On Iran.” This top-featured article appeared in the London Sunday Times Online, on January 7, 2007. Writers Uzi Mahnaimi and Sarah Baxter clearly claimed to have in- side information, allowing them to access classified Israeli plans: “Israel has drawn up secret plans to destroy Iran’s uranium enrich- ment facilities with tacti- cal nuclear weapons. “Two Israeli air force squadrons are train- ing to blow up an Iranian facility using low- yield nuclear ‘bunker-busters,’ according to several Israeli military sources. “The attack would be the first with nu- clear weapons since 1945, when the United Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (above) is convinced that Islam’s long-awaited States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima “Twelfth Imam” will appear in Mecca by March 21, 2007 — this year’s Spring Equinox.

All this would amount to just so much propaganda if it weren’t for one thing. The mullahs of Iran believe that it is their duty to create turmoil and pandemonium. This, they say, will actually accelerate the Mahdi’s coming. We first began to focus on this fact over a year ago. Now, it has come to worldwide attention. Actually, the Shiite Muslims are zealous in their desire that ev- eryone should hear about the object of their fervor. They are trying everything they can to make sure that their hopes, dreams and aggressive intentions are well known. A news release by WorldNetDaily on December 31, 2006, included the remark- able statement, distributed by an Iranian state website, to the effect that the Mahdi (accompanied by none other than Jesus!), could make himself public at the date of the Spring Equinox: “Imam Mahdi (may God hasten his reappearance) will appear all of a sud- Prophecy in the News airs on Sky Angel den on the world scene with a voice from the skies announcing his reappearance at Monday 11:30 PM (EST) & Friday 10:00 AM (EST)l the holy Ka’aba in Mecca.” The internet program was entitled, “The World Toward is the Mahdi.

  • Visit our On-line Bookstore on the Internet - The View From Mount Calvary By John Phillips 24 Portraits of the Cross Throughout Scripture Without Jesus, the Bible makes no sense, and without His atoning death on the cross, the Bible makes no difference. From Genesis to Revelation, the death of Jesus on Mount Calvary is the Bible’s central theme. “So, Calvary covers it all,” writes John Phillips. “Calvary was conceived in the mind of God in a past eternity. Its shadow lays across the pages of the inspired Old Testament. Its stark reality is detailed for us in the Gospels. Its blessed results are the themes of the Epistles. In ages yet unborn, Calvary will be the lasting wonder of all God’s redeemed.” The View from Mount Calvary will deepen your appreciation of the finished work of Christ as John Phillips guides you through the entire Bible. John Phillips taught in the Moody Evening School and on the Moody Broadcasting radio network. He is the author of numer- ous books, including a multivolume expository commentary series. Now retired, Dr. Phillips remains active in his writing and preaching. He and his wife, Betty, live in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. (294 pages) Item # B2707 - $15.95 NATIONS UNITED How the United Nations Undermines Israel and the West By Alex Grobman On November 10, 1975, the United Nations General Assembly declared that Zion- ism “is a form of racism and racial discrimination.” This insidious ideological attack against Israel was repealed in 1991, but the attempt to delegitimize the nation has severely harmed the country. Israel is still viewed as a pariah state on college campuses around the world. The long-term effects of the resolution will continue to resonate for years to come. In this meticulously researched and well-written work, Alex Grobman exposes the strategy behind this malicious campaign and examines the environment at the UN that fostered this assault. Through the use of extensive sources, Grobman system- atically refutes the charges against the Jewish State. (192 pages - hardcover) Item # B2708 - $19.95 The Beginning of the World A Scientific Study of Genesis 1-11 By Dr. Henry Morris While many Christians are compromising the Scriptures with what they think is modern science, God is calling many scientists to defend the faith. The result is a sudden surge of awareness that the Bible is true after all — even the long-ridiculed doctrines such as a literal six-day Creation, a young Earth, and a worldwide cata- clysmic Flood in the days of Noah. In this book, both the scientific and historical aspects of these issues as well as their evangelistic and spiritual applications are discussed at length. Dr. Edward Blick, Ph.D., Professor of Aerospace Mechanical and Nuclear Engineer- ing at the University of Oklahoma added this endorsement: “Evolution is a scientific fairy tale just as the “flat earth theory” was in the 12th century. Biblical Creation is the only sensible alternative.” (164 pages) Item # B2523 - $10.95 Call our toll-free ORDER LINE 1-800-475-1111 and use your VISA, MasterCard, Discover Card, or American Express.

  • Find us on the Internet - Studies in John’s Epistles: The Epistle of III John By J. R. Church In spite of the brevity of this Epistle, theologians have taken great pains to pore over every word and discuss various av- enues of its practical construction. It seems as though our theological sleuths (and I admire them for that) have turned over every rock, looked under every proverbial blade of grass and discussed such things as the identity of Gaius; whether or not (among several) he might have been the one who lived John the Apostle at Corinth; whether or not the aged John was able to travel that great distance overland; or, having been a Galilean fisherman, could traverse the treacherous waters of the Aegean Sea, etc., ad infinitum! I appreciate the heroic efforts of so many great theologians, but after all is said and done, we must admit that John’s message was rather short — only 14 verses long, containing less than 300 Greek words. Was the Apostle writing only to correct an error in some local congregation? Why was the problem with Diotrephes so important as to need John’s attention? If that is all there is to this Epistle, why was it deemed important enough to be included in the canon of inspired Scripture? What seems to be lacking in the commen- taries at my disposal, is an acknowledgment of a possible prophetic message. After all, John was the main “Prophet” of the New Testament. Why, at this time in John’s life, would theologians only be concerned with the practical applications of this Epistle? Polycrates (A.D. 130-196), bishop of the Ephesians, had said that John was the “high priest” of the Lord, wearing on his forehead the golden frontlet, once worn by John (top-right) lived in Ephesus during the last decade of the first century. From Caiaphas, the Jewish High Priest; and since there, he wrote five New Testament books. Our estimate is that his Gospel was written John was acknowledged as the writer of before A.D. 96; the Apocalypse in A.D. 96; and I, II & III John shortly thereafter. the “spiritual” Gospel (the Sohd or “secret of some great spiritual concept. Over and things; that he could heal the sick and raise level” of Jewish interpretation); a “spiritual” over, John writes about a subject he called, the dead, simply by speaking; that the Savior First Epistle; and the fabulous visions of the “truth.” Could not this be a “class of truth” promised to return to Earth with the armies Apocalypse; why shouldn’t we be looking that transcends practical Christian living, the of heaven; that a great war in heaven will be into the “spiritual level” of the Second philosophical or psychological teachings concluded, at last, in this physical realm; and and Third Epistles, as well? We should be of mortals, and the daily activities of local that He will reign over the human race for hanging on every word from the pen of this congregations? After all, John has written a thousand years as King of kings and Lord great New Testament Prophet, as if he was about Jesus being the human embodiment of lords. As a matter of fact, John speaks of pointing us toward the “mystical” meaning of the Eternal God; that Jesus created all “truth” in exactly this fashion. 6 Prophecy in the News Find us on the Internet -
  • Find us on the Internet - Here Are Our Latest Studies in Eschatology! Gate of the Fallen Angels 1. Gate of the Fallen Angels - Mount Hermon is credited with being the port of entry for the “sons of God” in Genesis 6. After the Flood, another group came back to continue their program of corrupting the human gene pool, inserting the “seed of the serpent” into the lineage of the tribe of Dan. Ancient writings noted that the Antichrist will not be entirely human. 2. Solomon’s Strange Woman - In the book of Proverbs, Solomon introduces two women. One is called, Wisdom, while the other is referred to as the Strange Woman. In these two, you will learn something about Solomon’s famous wisdom. As he grew old, he chased after the Strange Woman — a thousand of them! 3. The Epistle of II John - John writes a short, yet mysterious letter to an unknown person, whom he calls “elect lady.” Was this simply a personal letter with no divine value? John is the most mystical of all the writers of the New Testament. Therefore, we believe the book has prophetic value. 4. The Men Who Captured Saddam Hussein - In this program, we interview Lt. Col. Steve Russell (ret.), the soldier who led the battilion credited with capturing Saddam Hussein. He tells us how they conducted their investigation over a period of months and finally found him.

  • Find us on the Internet - A Prophetic Mini-Study Egypt: Fire and Flood By Gary Stearman Lately, Egypt has been relatively quiet. After lying in the background of Middle East affairs for the last three decades, it has almost been forgotten that Egypt was dominant in both the Six-Day and Yom Kippur Wars. In fact, from the beginning, Egypt was bent upon Israel’s complete destruction. In the 1950s, Egypt’s Nasser had combined forces with Jordan, enlisting fedayeen fight- ers. By 1956, their raids into southern Israel, and his closing the Suez canal to Israeli shipping, led to an Israeli counterattack, and victory. Even though Egypt was beaten back for the time being, Israel continued to be Aswan has two dams. The British built the low dam (seen above under construction) treated as the aggressor. In the ten years from 1899-1902. When it almost overflowed in 1946, Egypt decided to construct a that followed, Egypt rearmed, waiting for second, more elaborate dam nearby. the right time to attack again. On May 15, 1967, the anniversary date of Israel’s state- hood, Egyptian forces invaded the Sinai. The radio Voice of the Arabs announced, “The sole method we shall apply against Israel is a total war which will result in the extermination of Zionist existence.” Other Arab states echoed these senti- ments. But in a miraculous series of defense maneuvers, Israel defeated Egypt in six short days. Their defeat was stunning, but still, Egypt’s desire to wipe out Israel was not dampened. Six years later, in October of 1973, Egypt and Syria opened a coor- dinated, two-pronged surprise attack upon Israel. It was deliberately planned to fall on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. The attack came at a time when all Israel was shut down for a period of fasting and prayer. But once again, Israel brilliantly counterat- tacked, driving back the invaders. As had happened so many times before, a truce was called. This led to a series of talks that finally brought Jimmy Carter, The Aswan High Dam (as seen from above) was built with the help of Russia.

Church I was watching the Military Channel the other night and saw Lockheed’s most ad- vanced development in America’s arsenal of fighter aircraft — the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). Its designers have left no page unturned in putting the lat- est and best technology into this awesome aircraft. It is impervious to radar, travels at over 1,200 mph, and houses all weapons, rockets, etc., inside. There are three models, one of which is designed for vertical take-off — similar to the British Harrier Jet, and dubbed a “Short Take-Off and Vertical Landing aircraft (STOVL).” Another is designed for air- craft carriers. It is called a “Carrier Variant (CV).” A third uses a conventional runway. It is called a “Conventional Take-Off and The F-35 (here called X-35) will roll off the assembly line in 2008.

A significant number of the prophecies in the Bible have come to pass. Those that remain to be fulfilled foretell the End Times — and if biblical scholars are right, they are about to come to pass. Could it be that scientists of all stripes have come to the same conclusion as the ancient prophets — are the earth’s days numbered? Are the “signs of the times” all around us? If so, what are they? And where will this road lead us? And most importantly, will you be ready when the prophetic clock stops ticking?

  • Visit our On-line Bookstore on the Internet - The Pillar of Enoch The Lost Legend of the Great Pyramid A Ken Klein Production The foolishness of the common assumption, that the Giza plateau pyramids were built and utilized by fourth Dynasty kings as funerary structures or tombs, cannot be overstated. It is a matter of archaeological fact that none of the fourth Dynasty kings put their names on the pyramids supposedly constructed in their times, yet all other pyramids of Egypt had hundreds of official inscriptions, leaving us no doubt about which kings built them. Even those archaeologists who still stubbornly subscribe to the “tomb theory” of the pyramid do not believe that anyone was ever buried in the limestone chamber. Mysteri- ous legends and records tell of watermarks that were clearly visible on the limestone casing stones of the Great Pyramid suggesting that the Great Pyramid existed before the pharaohs and during the great flood of Noah’s time. Although much research remains to be done in these areas, legend, archaeology, mathematics, and earth sciences seem to indicate that the Great Pyramid was a monumental device for gathering knowledge and information to be revealed and decoded at a later time for the spiritual benefit of human beings.

Instead, Missler examines important trends on today’s geopolitical and technological horizons through the eyes of Scripture’s prophetic calendar; analyzes the likely end-time ef- fects of global changes, from the nature of modern weaponry to the implications of the world’s attitude toward the nation of Islam; and highlights our resulting spiritual responsibilities in scientific, social, and political arenas.

Munk Michael Munk was born in 1905, into one of the aristocratic families of Berlin Jewish orthodoxy.

It offers a Jewish view of the 22 sacred Hebrew letters with their various meanings. In the process of opening eyes and raising eyebrows, Rabbi Michael Munk is convincing that his concept is true: the Hebrew alphabet abounds in scholarly and mystical meaning. If you want to understand the book of Revelation, then you must understand the meanings of the Hebrew letters.

Jeffrey The escalating terrorist attacks in the Middle East and in major cities in the West are not isolated acts of extremism. They are the first warning shots fired in a coming world war. For decades, prophecy expert Grant R. Jeffrey has been analyzing geopolitical devel- opments through the lenses of history, religion, and prophecy. As current events unfold according to the prophecies of the Bible, Jeffrey says Islamic extremists are preparing to attack Israel and conquer western civilization — destroying our freedom. Drawing from firsthand interviews, intelligence reports, and ancient prophecy, Jeffrey reveals: • Saddam Hussein’s role in the 9/11 attack on America • Where Iraq hid its Weapons of Mass Destruction • How Russia and extreme Islam will launch World War III • The Bible’s prophecy of the destruction of extremist Islam • How Israel will rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem With Grant Jeffrey’s incisive and sometimes surprising analysis, you can understand the hidden agenda and powerful players behind today’s news headlines.

  • Visit our On-line Bookstore on the Internet - One Book Stands Alone Dr. Douglas D. Stauffer Dr. Lee Roberson calls this book “a spiritual masterpiece.” Douglas Stauffer tackles the most pressing theological debate of our time — identifying God’s preserved Word in the English language. Unlike many of the controversial and sometimes caustic works in this area, this book conclusively pinpoints the present battleground and spiritual combatants of the 21st century. As a result of his “success” in the Garden of Eden, Satan has unrelentingly posed his familiar “Hath God said” question to every generation. Unfortunately, his query has frequently accomplished its designed purpose, undermining one’s faith in God’s Word and causing division between the Creator and His creation. Dr. Stauffer identifies the counterfeit authorities guilty of giving an uncertain sound. The reader will quickly discover how to recognize Satan’s multi-pronged at- tack aimed at the deity of Jesus Christ; scriptural purity and preservation; salvation by grace without works; the supremacy of preaching; Christ’s sinless perfection; the teaching of moral absolutes; and the total elimination of certain key verses and doctrines. (434 pages - hardcover) Item # B2705 - $24.95 One Book Rightly Divided Dr. Douglas D. Stauffer God has given man the Bible, yet the scriptures are debated with more vigor and less agreement today than in any previous time. The resultant widespread error propagated by churches and cults has compelled the production of this work. One Book Rightly Divided addresses many difficult and confusing questions, such as: • Since the New Testament does not begin in Matthew, where does it begin? • Why did Paul re-baptize the converts of John the Baptist? • God took His Spirit and His mercy from King Saul. Should a Christian be concerned about losing either of these? • Since the Bible contains no contradictions, how does one reconcile “For by Grace are ye saved through faith ... not of works ...” with “ works a man is justified, and not by faith only”? (Ephesians 2:8,9 & James 2:24). This book also fulfills a real need for a work on biblical dispensations. It is well balanced and provides the reader with a complete understanding of the Bible’s time line.

Jenkins HISTORICAL NOVEL — The year is A.D. 95, and John, the one whom Jesus called “beloved,” is the last of the twelve apostles still alive. Now nearing ninety, John is still committed to spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ. When a renegade begins misleading the masses with danger- ous, heretical teachings, John is called by God to write a Gospel to show that Jesus was, in fact, the Son of God. Recalling his time with Jesus, John brings to life the miracles and messages of the Man who would change the course of history. John is there when Jesus turns water into wine at the wedding at Cana, when He heals the sick, enables the blind to see, raises Lazarus from the dead. And as John recounts the miracles of the Messiah performed during His transformative time on earth, we too are transported to these glorious events. John experiences persecution, betrayal, torture, and exile — but never falters in his belief and commit- ment. John’s Story is a thrilling account of the life of the man who came to fulfill the prophecies of the Old Testament and to save all of humankind, and of the disciple who was the last eyewitness to Jesus’ glory. You will experience, firsthand, the creation of the Gospel of John as well as the Book of Revelation — Scripture THE FIRST IN A NEW SERIES that still has profound meaning for the world two thousand years later.

  • Visit our On-line Bookstore on the Internet - THE IRANIAN MENACE In Jewish History and Prophecy By Dr. Jeffrey L. Seif (Zola Levitt Ministries) Dr. Jeffrey Seif opens the book with a history of the Persian empire — from the historical appearance of the Elamites, to the reign of the Persian monarchs. The prophet Daniel lived, taught and died in Persia. Esther became the Jewish Queen of Persia, as recorded in the Old Testament. The Prophet Ezekiel also told about Persia (Iran) participating in the Battle of Gog and Magog. These alone would make the book worth reading, but then, Dr. Seif opens the pages of an ancient extra-biblical source — the book of Enoch — and that’s when Jeffrey Seif really gets interesting! He writes, “I was impressed when I stumbled upon the ancient sources.” He tells how Enoch predicted the Tribulation Period, and Persia’s involvement, using Enoch’s fantastic vocabulary, various visions and dialogues that he allegedly had been privileged to have with heavenly beings.

And yet, the juxtaposition of these seven general Epistles, James through Jude, lay out an uncanny prophetic review of the Tribulation Period. I believe John’s body of “truth” covers exactly what we are talking about — the prophetic message. If you cannot see it, you are not alone. For many centuries, great theologians have been Watch Our TV Program on perplexed with John’s writings. Concerning the Apocalypse, Dionysius (A.D. 200-265), bishop of Alexandria, expressed his con- sternation with John’s writing, saying that it passes his understanding. In his comment on Revelation 12, and the great red dragon’s battle with the woman, Dionysius said, “So far we have given, in brief, the history of the woman and the dragon. But to search out and explain the solution of them is beyond my powers. Nevertheless, let me venture, trusting in Him who commanded to search the Scriptures. If, then, you agree with this, it will not be difficult to undertake it; for you will quite pardon me, if I am unable suf- ficiently to explain the exact meaning of the Scripture” (Dionysius, Discourse 8, ch. 4).

This DVD video contains six extra features, including these segments: Who was the Pharaoh of the Exodus? Where are the Ten Com- mandments? From Egypt to Mt. Sinai; Cecil B.

McTernan John McTernan traces the history of the Jewish people in America and shows how the USA is unique among all nations through blessing the Jews. This book reveals a spiritual aspect of America’s beginning, its spectacular rise to power, and how this was tied into blessing the Jews. With great detail, McTernan reveals the current connection between American interference with God’s prophetic plan for Israel and awesome disasters strik- ing our nation. The book explains the world’s future in light of Bible prophecy and what the near future holds. It shows how this all ties to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. He includes how 19th-century American Christians started Zionism and why Russia has been such a colossal failure, while the USA is so blessed.

  • Visit our On-line Bookstore on the Internet - Novels by Joel C. Rosenberg The Copper Scroll White House advisors Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy find themselves facing a terrifying new threat triggered by an ancient mystery. In 1956, a Copper Scroll was uncovered that described treasures worth untold billions buried in the hills east of Jerusalem. Scholars came to believe that the Copper Scroll could be history’s greatest treasure map, one that could not only lead to the treasures, but pave the way for the building of the Third Jewish Temple. However, experts warn that any effort by Israel to rebuild their Temple in Jerusalem would unleash a war of bibli- cal proportions. (368 pages - hardcover) Item # B2619 - $24.95 The Ezekiel Option Saddam Hussein is gone. Yasser Arafat is dead. An American president is trying to spread freedom and de- mocracy throughout the Middle East. But suddenly a new evil looms on the horizon. A dictator is rising in Russia. Iran is feverishly building nuclear weapons. A new Axis of Evil is emerging, led by Moscow and Tehran. And Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy — two senior White House Advisors — find themselves facing the most chilling question of their lives: (413 pages - paperback) Item # B2608 - $13.95 The Last Days The eyes of the world are on Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy, two senior White House advisors, as they arrive in the Middle East to offer an Arab-Israeli peace plan and the American president’s new vision of freedom and democracy. But in the shadows lie men whose hearts are filled with evil — for whom the prospects of peace go against everything they believe. And soon, one terrifying scheme after another begins to unfold. As Jon and Erin face a battle for control of Jerusalem, they can’t help but wonder if such signs are evidence that they are living in the last days before the return of Christ. (472 pages - paperback) Item # B2625 - $13.95 The Last Jihad Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy are two of the shrewdest strategists on Wall Street and close friends of the presi- dent of the United States. Their secret project: a billion-dollar oil deal off the coast of Tel Aviv and Gaza that could form the basis of a historic peace treaty and bring enormous wealth to every Israeli and Palestinian. But nothing has prepared Jon and Erin for the terror that lies ahead. Terrorists hijack a jet plane and fly a kamikaze mission into an American city. Israeli commandos foil a nuclear attack but find evidence that the next targets could be Washington and New York! This novel was written before 9/11/2001. (334 pages - paperback) Item # B2626 - $13.95 EPICENTER By Joel C. Rosenberg Joel Rosenberg is an excellent author, having written several novels listed on the New York Times Best-Seller list. Four of his novels are offered above. But this book is a more serious work on actual facts of interest in world affairs. Rosenberg writes that current rumblings in the Middle East will change our future. Iran’s president vows to wipe Israel “off the map” and says the end of the world is just two or three years away. A leading U.S. presidential candidate says that if Iran goes nuclear “we could have Armageddon.” Russia signs a billion-dollar arms deal with Iran and helps them build some two dozen nuclear facilities — some deep underground across the country. And President Bush refuses to rule out preemptive nuclear strikes. Is another war coming? Does Ezekiel’s 2,500-year-old prophecy really foretell the rise of a Russian- Iranian alliance against Israel? This is a must-read.

Gate of the Fallen Angels - Mount Hermon is credited with being the port of entry for the “sons of God” in Genesis 6. After the Flood, another group came back to continue their program of corrupting the human gene pool, inserting the “seed of the serpent” into the lineage of the tribe of Dan. Ancient writings noted that the Antichrist will not be entirely human. 2. Solomon’s Strange Woman - In the book of Proverbs, Solomon introduces two women. One is called, Wisdom, while the other is referred to as the Strange Woman. In these two, you will learn something about Solomon’s famous wisdom. As he grew old, he chased after the Strange Woman — a thousand of them! 3. The Epistle of II John - John writes a short, yet mysterious letter to an un- known person, whom he calls “elect lady.” Was this simply a personal letter with no divine value? John is the most mystical of all the writers of the New Testament. Therefore, we believe the book has prophetic value. 4. The Men Who Captured Saddam Hussein - In this program, we interview Lt. Col. Steve Russell (ret.), the soldier who led the battilion credited with capturing Saddam Hussein. He tells us how they conducted their investigation over a period of months and finally found him. Today, Steve Russell teaches a class on Revelation. Available on Audio Cassette (C5801) or CD (CD5801) for a Gift of $10 Also on VHS Video (V5801) or DVD (DVD5801) for a Gift of $20
