Four thousand years ago, the Israelites drove the Canaanites from Israel and they never quite got over it.... In The Staff of Moses, acclaimed Christian author Summer Lee breaks into the Biblical artifact treasure-hunting genre with an original, fast-paced standalone novel about the quest for the mystical Staff of Moses. When the adventure begins in 1963, Aviela, who works for the government, is assigned to rescue archaeologist Eldad Ben-Tzion from danger and take him to Jerusalem. When Aviela locates him at the famous archaeology expedition at Masada, an evil Canaanite poses a threat to Ben-Tzion, and to the archaeologist in charge of the dig. Aviela tries to remove the man from harm´s way just when remarkable artifacts are discovered at Masada, and a professional conflict between Ben-Tzion and the lead archaeologist distracts him and throws him into a down spiral. 1.

Adolf Eichmann, also known as ´´The Master,´´ was put in charge of organizing the Jews and sending them away to concentration camps. On Sunday, March 19th, 1944, Eichmann was standing in what would become one of many concentration camps; from there he led a long convoy of SS members into Hungary. As Eichmann and his men rolled along the trail, Hitler ordered troops of men to invade the capital city of Hungary and seize strategic positions. Eichmann was methodic in his annihilation of the Jews. First, he would isolate them. He would mark them with yellow stars so that they could not travel or use any form of communication as well as banning them from a number of occupations including civil service. After the isolation stage, he would collect every form of wealth owned by the Jews. From bank account to businesses all the way down to their ration cards, they would have nothing to leave behind. He would then remove the Jews from their homes and march them to a holding area where they would be kept before being shipped to the concentration camps. Here is a preview of what you´ll learn: Learn how Eichmann was tracked in Argentina and brought to Israel in secrecy Learn why Eichmann managed to escape for so long Learn about how the Mossad (Israeli secret service) assisted in this mission 1.

Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi: It is an unfortunate misconception that because these books are called The Minor Prophets, their relevance to our lives is also minor. This couldn´t be further from the truth. The richness of life´s lessons and our prophetic hope permeate every word. Don´t be tricked into missing these overwhelmingly rich studies. In the book of Haggai we see God sending the prophet Haggai to challenge the people to rebuild which led to a significant turning point in their history. Haggai´s audience was the remnant. (They were not unbelievers.) They were the right people, living in the right place, wanting to do the right work, and for the right reasons. But their priorities were not right. They were caught up in their own pursuits. They were living for themselves rather than for God´s glory. (Isn´t that us?) Zechariah is often called the Apocalypse of the OT, it presents the Messiah as: The Branch who will remove iniquity, The Stone, His Throne, His Temple, The Coming King, The Shepherd, The Triumphal Entry, on a donkey, His Betrayal for 30 pieces of silver, His Crucifixion, and His Second Coming: looking upon me whom they pierced. It also focuses on the Day of YHWH, the return of Israel in unbelief, and their passing through the Great Tribulation; the siege of Jerusalem by the confederated Gentile powers, and their deliverance by King Messiah. Zechariah also gives us the only physical description of the Antichrist in the Scripture. (It also seems to suggest a neutron bomb in Chapter 14.) It also may hold the solution to the enigma of Mystery Babylon and its relation to literal Babylon in prophecy.Malachi means ´´my messengers.´´Malachi ministered in the fifth-century b.c., about 100 years after Cyrus had issued the decree in 538 b.c. which permitted Jews to return from exile to Judah. The destruction of Edom (re: Mal 1:3-5) was affected by the Nabatean Arabs who totally drove out the Edomites between 550 and 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chuck Missler.

I´m not a puppet. I wasn´t made by the west to go to the west or any other country. I´m Syrian. I´m made in Syria. I have to live in Syria and die in Syria. - Bashar al-Assad, 2012 In early 2011, a political movement swept across the Arabic-speaking world that toppled despotic regimes and dictatorships. The political movement, which became known as the ´´Arab Spring´´, was popular in nature and made use of the Internet, particularly social networking websites, to remove dictators such as Muammar Qadaffi of Libya. Those dictators, who ruled their countries for decades, were unable to stem the tide of popular indignation against them, even though they tried using force and propaganda in ways reminiscent of the Cold War era. The events of the Arab Spring have come to be overshadowed by the civil war in the Arabic-speaking nation of Syria, which has been ruled throughout the 21st century by Bashar al-Assad. Though he had not planned on ruling Syria, several events conspired to make Bashar the successor of his father, Hafez. Though the West frequently looked for signs that Bashar might be a reformer, due in part to his formerly popular Western wife, Assad remained part of a critical alliance with Iran and the sub-state groups Hamas and Hezbollah. This formed an influential bloc that has influenced events across the Middle East, and one that Israel and the West have tried to break over the past decade. A crisis that may have threatened to involve either the United States, Russia, or both, appears to have been solved at least temporarily. However bigger issues concerning Syria still remain. Syria and the Assad Family explains how Hafez al-Assad´s son grew up and the events that brought him to power in Syria. It also comprehensively analyzes the ongoing civil war against Assad. You will learn about Syria´s notorious dictator like you never have before. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Phillip J Mather.
