More than 2,000 Syrians have been killed with tens of thousands injured and more than ten thousand imprisoned during the revolution that has gripped that country. In 2007 when I wrote the No. 1 New York Times bestseller, The Final Move Beyond Iraq: The Final Solution while the World Sleeps, I said, “An Islamic caliphate will sweep the Middle East.” That is precisely what has been happening since the first of this year.
Thousands of Iranian agents, the long arm of Iran, are in Damascus, Syria to aid President Bashar al Assad. He and his father before him have done everything possible to kill Jews and defeat Israel during all of its wars. In the midst of the Six Day War, June 5, 1967, Syria controlled the Golan Heights overlooking the Sea of Galilee, with nine brigades (7,500 soldiers with artillery and armor) determined to drive the Jews into the Mediterranean Sea.
A famous general who graced the cover of Life told me that he was alone in his tank when a large number of Syrian tanks crested the top of the Golan Heights. He turned his badly broken tank to face the enemy and stood his ground though wounded severely. He said later, “The Syrian tanks ground to a halt and the men inside climbed out waving white flags. They marched toward me. When they were interrogated they said they surrendered because they saw a huge angel of Allah over a hundred feet tall standing with a sword drawn against them.”
This general came to my room late one night and asked me to join him as he took a small Gideon Bible and used it like a Geiger counter. With a diagram of Jerusalem in hand, he would go to the holy sites. Once there, he would read the New Testament and, sensing the Holy Spirit, he would mark the site on his map. He said he was doing this to determine the areas of Jerusalem where the Holy Spirit did not dwell.
One morning near the Damascus gate, we sat and sipped Turkish coffee. I said to him, “My dear friend, you are reading the scriptures and exalting the Lord. When you do, the Holy Spirit comes. He will be everywhere.”
Iran, through Syria and Lebanon, has fueled and fed terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah both firmly entrenched on Israel’s borders. Syrian farmers have been paid $1,000 to march in protest against Israel and try to cross the border and $10,000 if their families are killed. Tens of millions of dollars of military equipment has been poured into Syria. Iran’s leaders believe a Shi’a caliphate can sweep from Iran across Afghanistan and into Pakistan, and from Iraq into Syria on to Egypt and into North Africa. The ultimate goal is to engulf the entire Middle East. The Saudi Arabians are so concerned about this that when I was issued a state invitation from President Barzani in Iraq, I was told that the Saudi’s were building a 400 mile wall between their country and Iraq.
Damascus is mentioned over sixty times in the King James Bible. The road to Damascus is the place where the Apostle Paul was converted and was the place where the disciples were first called “Christians.” (Acts 9; Acts 11:26) Barnabas taught there for a year. Aramean, the language Jesus spoke, is still spoken in some of the cities in Syria.
On October 22, 1983 I drove a rental vehicle with Jerusalem license plate across the border at Nahariya, Israel to Sidon and Tyre and into Beirut. I carried a trunk filled with food and medicine to comfort suffering Lebanese Christians. I went down to the beach to minister to young American Marines stationed at the Beirut Airport. I gave them Gideon Bibles and shared the Gospel with them. I prayed with and led many to the Lord.
These young men knew they would not be home for Christmas, so I asked my cameraman to film short segments of them sending Christmas messages to their loved ones. One Hispanic Marine from Wooster, Massachusetts said, “Hi Mom, I know you’ve been praying that I would find the Lord. Well, I just did! Merry Christmas.”
That night I slept on the beach while the Marines returned to their barracks nearby. Shortly after 6:00 AM the next morning, I was awakened by a terrific explosion. A yellow Mercedes Benz truck was driven through the check point at the airport where the driver aimed it at the lobby of the Marine headquarters. A smiling suicide bomber detonated the explosive-laden truck loaded with approximately 12,000 pounds of TNT.
The massive force of the explosion pancaked the floors of the building one on top of the other. Those inside were crushed. At that point all hell broke loose in Beirut as terrorists began firing at anything that moved.
I jumped into the car and headed what I thought was north along the Mediterranean toward Israel. As the battle raged and the sun began to set, I could no longer see the sea. Suddenly I was caught in the midst of a funeral for a Hezbollah terrorist whose body was being held high above the crowd while mourners waved guns in the air. Somehow God blinded their eyes and I was able to escape. Much to my dismay, I discovered that I had taken a wrong turn.
Like the Apostle Paul, I found myself on the road to Damascus, the target of 35mm shells being fired at my car. Spotlights from the hills beamed down on the vehicle. My cameraman and an associate, L.W. Dollar, were in the rental car with me when we suddenly ran out of fuel. It was the worst possible spot in which to be. There was no possibility that we could escape undetected.
One of the men began to shout, “We’re dead! We’re dead!” I jumped out of the car with a screwdriver to remove the light from the license plate so it could not be seen. When I got back into the car, I prayed that angels of the Lord would undergird and protect us. At that moment, an old Arab man walked up to the window and banged on it. My first reaction was, “Yes, we’re dead.” I expected at any moment to see a gun aimed at us with murderous intent.
I was stunned when he held up a can of diesel. He poured the liquid into the tank, knocked on the window, and pointed at the door lock. When I opened the door, he climbed inside and sat down. Not saying a word, he led us by pointing with his finger the thirty-two kilometers to the border of Israel. Within about one hundred yards of the border he indicated that I should stop. When I brought the car to a halt, he opened the door and stepped out into the night.
When we pulled up to the border, the colonel greeted us with awe. He said, “I cannot believe you are alive. Someone from the Prime Minister’s office called and said there was no way we would come back alive. They were certain no would could travel the road we had traveled that night from Beirut to Israel. I turned toward the old Arab to point out that he had saved us; he was not there. I am certain God had sent an angel of the Lord to guide and protect us on that dark and dangerous journey.

Persia: The Final Jihad
Persia. The very word evokes images of kings and princes and tales of Arabian nights, of Scheherazade, the teller of 1001 stories of cunning and derring-do.
However, Persia was not solely acclaimed for the tales of 1001 Arabian Nights, but for algebra, Backgammon, a postal service, military conscription, and advances in human rights.
Living in the FOG (Favor of God)
Until God gave me this revelation, I had no idea that Scriptures I had circled even as a child would have special significance in the years to come.
After having seen Jesus face-to-face at the age of eleven, I knew I wanted to hear His voice again. That is what sparked this amazing search. I learned through this revelation how to hear the voice of God again and again-through His Word.
As a young girl, Sarah Batsheva was infatuated with the handsome teenage boy who lived down the street. That teenage boy was Adolf Eichmann. It all seemed innocent and nice until Sarah's grandmother died, and then nothing was ever the same again.

What is the real reason for the ongoing conflict in the Middle East between the Jewish and Muslim populations?
The Candidate was written in order to expose the lie of The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and to reveal the extent to which this lie has led to the ongoing hatred of the Jewish people and the state of Israel by her racist enemies.
It was written in fiction form in order to reach beyond an audience of scholars, academics and political pundits to the common man. Most are unaware of the extent to which even their own opinions about modern Israel and the Jewish people have been subtly influenced by the anti-Semitic slurs which ultimately flow from this hate literature.
The Final Generation
Are the Prophetic Pieces Nearly in Place?
A diabolical counterfeit of God's ultimate plan of salvation seems to be spreading across the Middle East—and is playing out just as foretold in the Bible. While Western Christians seem to be growing more complacent and concerned with their personal comfort and success, a prophetic storm is gathering in the Middle East. Radical Islamists are preparing for the final battle, believing it will usher in a new age of Islamist supremacy.
Do you find these events as chilling as I do?
The Samson Option
Darkness blankets the eastern seaboard. From Maine to Georgia, the power grid is in shambles, destroyed by the pulse of a high-altitude nuclear detonation. Cities and towns of every size are on the verge of chaos. Only the military continues to function, frantically searching the seas for the two container ships bearing nuclear missiles poised for a second strike that will destory what remains of America. The President is convinced the attacks are the work of Al-Qa’ida operatives aided by elements within the Pakistani government. David Hoag knows the truth about who is really behind the attacks, but powerful forces in high places are bent on unleashing America's military might and Israel is poised for a response of its own. Can Hoag reach the President in the time to avert a worldwide disaster? Or, is the beginning of the end?
Events in the Middle East are rapidly moving toward total chaos. Eyes worldwide are directed toward every country except the one that is most important—Israel. It has been called the "world's canary in the coal mine." You know the story of how miners carried canaries into coal mines to detect poisonous methane gas. It was one of the first early warning systems.
Each of the countries that surround Israel—Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt—is in upheaval to some degree. The only matter on which all can agree is their hatred for Israel and the Jewish people.
Sorrowfully, the Liberal Left in America has drawn a line in the sand and stepped over to the other side—away from our long-time ally, Israel. President Barack Obama's one-world view has placed him squarely alongside the United Nations. He has cast his lot with those who would see Israel stripped, bleeding, and impotent to defend herself. No longer the Good Samaritan, he has befriended those who pass by on the other side and ignore the threat Israel faces.
IT’S A LIE THAT WOULD NOT DIE;
believed to be true by Adolf Hitler, Henry Ford, and the late Osama bin Laden. It was introduced by the Russian secret police in an attempt to bolster the reign of Tsar Nicholas II. It erroneously exposed his enemies as co-conspirators with the Jews in a plot to take over the world. This fabricated document was embraced by a religious fanatic, Sergei Nilus, and published in 1905 in Russia. He published three separate versions of the book, and the last in 1917 indicated that Theodor Herzl was the writer of the mythical conspiracy theory. The book birthed the pogroms in Russia, and was used by Hitler as an excuse to exterminate six million Jews in Europe. Many Muslim leaders worldwide keep it within reach as the most revered book, after the Quran. Every terrorist organization uses this plagiarized copy to support the vile acts it commits.
When a father forsakes his God-given responsibilities, Can a son find the strength to forgive?
… David took a deep breath and forced himself to think. God’s grace, he told himself, reaches to the depths of sin.
When a son is wounded beyond belief, Can he unleash the healing power of love on his entire family?
Unforgiveness is like drinking poison while hoping it will make your enemy sick, David thought to himself.
When a heaven-sent messenger draws near and empowers healing… Can a man of God believe what he sees?
As he sat there on the step the light through the window grew brighter again, filling the room and surrounding him with its glow.
You’ll love this moving story of grace and forgiveness beyond measure.
I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed. - Genesis 12:3
President Obama plans to succeed in dividing Jerusalem by 2012, blackmailing Israel over the Iran crisis to achieve his objective. "Never miss the opportunity of a crisis."
The president apparently feels that Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria are a fair trade in order to keep Iran (Persia) from going atomic. The Obama administration seems to be treating Israel as a property to be bartered — or perhaps more accurately — to be betrayed for the sake of expediency. The Arab world wants its 22nd Islamic state with its capital in Jerusalem for one simple reason: Muslims believe Israel is Arab land occupied by foreigners.
If America touches prophecy - Jerusalem - God's curse will fall upon America and upon President Obama as decreed in Genesie 12:3. The ancient prophet Zachariah cried out, "I will make Jerusalem a cup that will send all the surrounding people reeling … an immovable rock for all nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves."
An Islamic radical drives a Suburban loaded with explosives into the early morning drop-off line at a school in Denver.
In Chicago, another fanatical Muslim drives a gasoline truck into the Chicago Board of Trade building. Death and destruction rain down.
Terrorists crash small, explosive-laden airplanes into the airport in Atlanta, destroying two jumbo jets and the main terminal. All flights are grounded.
A nuclear bomb is exploded high above Washington, D.C. The entire East Coast power grid collapses. Everything is at a standstill.
This electrifying new fiction novel from Mike Evans traces the events from inception to execution — from the hopelessness of a world gone mad to a renewed hope.
Atomic Iran: Countdown to Armageddon
The Story Behind this Provocative Book
The Countdown to Armageddon Has Begun!
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that Israel must be “wiped off the map.” Such a radical statement might seem like bravado and bluster, but the Iranian connection to rocket attacks on Israel make it crystal clear that the Islamic Republic has every intention of following through with its threats of total destruction. Most troubling of all, Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons with reckless determination as part of its mission to annihilate Israel, which Ahmadinejad calls a “stain of disgrace.”
With Iran’s history of contempt for the United Nations, the United States, Great Britain, and of course, Israel, such an apocalyptic event could happen at any moment. You need to take a stand!
Jimmy Carter, the Liberal Left and World Chaos
The presidential election was a public sounding board for the much-touted failures of the Republican Party. He ran against a disgraced president in the aftermath of an unpopular war on a theme of "change." He kept his word, and change began. Barack Obama? No, Jimmy Carter!
Philosopher George Santayana said, "Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it." Jimmy Carter, the Liberal Left and World Chaos: An Obama/Carter Plan That Will Not Work, is a 550-page hardback revealing how Barack Obama and the Liberal Left are poised to repeat Carter's changes and mistakes!
Mistakes like providing checks of $150 million to the Ayatollah Khomeini to overthrow the Shah of Iran. This change lit the fuse of terrorism that exploded against the world when Khomeini declared April Fools Day 1980 "the first day of the government of God." Radical Islam was born. As if that weren't enough, Carter provided $500 million to the Muslim Brotherhood Freedom Fighters, who became the Taliban and Al-Qaeda
