Description : When, in 1997, the International Atomic Energy Agency unanimously elected Mohamed ElBaradei as its next Director General, few observers could have forecast the dramatic role he would play over the next 12 years. Certainly, the stage onto which Dr. ElBaradei stepped - featuring Saddam Hussein's Iraq, Kim Jong-Il's North Korea, Muammar al-Gaddafi's Libya, and the Islamic Republic of Iran - gave ample opportunity for high-stakes and high-profile decision-making. But no one could have predicted that ElBaradei would be 'the man in the middle' of so many nuclear conflicts over so sustained a period of time. And after he and the IAEA were jointly awarded the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize, his role as middle-man only gained intensity. In The Age of Deception, Dr. ElBaradei gives us his account from the centre of the nuclear fray. Readers will sit at the dinner table with Iraqi officials in Baghdad, listening as they bleakly predict the coming war. They will eavesdrop on the exchanges between UN inspectors and U.S. officials observing the behind-the-scenes formulation of an approach to foreign policy and diplomacy that would come to characterise the Bush administration. We gain a feel for the difficulty of the IAEA inspectors' struggle to maintain objectivity when trust has been broken, or when the press - or governments - are playing fast and loose with the facts. The Age of Deception is a story of human imperfection, of modern society struggling to come to grips with the multiple dimensions of human insecurity.
Description : I believe the Father God has downloaded a shorter version of Bible history and meanings based on questions asked of me during my teachings and Bible studies I’ve given of the Word. Many want to ask certain questions about the church and its history but have been put off or not given the complete truth about the subject. Instead, they have been taught fables and traditions. Sometimes, the people don’t know, and other times, they prefer to stick with the teachings that follow tradition and fables. Since I’ve tried to find out about the answer to questions in the same manner in my younger years, I’ve found out that the deep study with the Father as my teacher gave me the answers I needed to the questions that were very important in my walk with Yeshua (Jesus). Now it makes sense to me. It uncovered a world of mysteries and cleared up my understanding. I, too, asked questions that I needed answers; however, in teachings and Bible studies I’ve conducted, I found most people still aren’t getting the answers necessary to take them to the higher level. This book seemed to be the answer. Although we will still be studying and learning more of His Word until His kingdom comes and beyond, this will give us a jump start in experiencing more of Him and how we can please Him until He comes to get us. I hope this book will open your eyes to some of the hidden things that have caused us not to follow the truth of Yeshua (Jesus), and our desire to learn more about Him will come alive in your spirit man to dig deeper for yourselves. Get into informative study groups and attend churches that preach from the Bible. Take your understanding to a new level. Don’t be satisfied with just a once a week appearance at church or not going at all because you don’t like the preacher or someone, feeling you have it covered. We will never put Yahweh (God) in a box and say this is all He has for us and we don’t need any more. I encourage you to come up higher. See what you’ve missed and see how Yeshua (Jesus) can use you in these final days before the “great and terrible day of The Lord” is coming shortly in countries all over the world. We must be ready.
Description : Right now, truth is under attack, and much is at stake. Perhaps no one in America is more passionate than John MacArthur about exposing those who are mounting this attack?especially those bringing the assault right into the church. There is no middle ground?no safe zone for the uncommitted in this war. The battle for truth is raging, and this book reveals: The pitfalls of postmodern thinking Why the Emerging Church Movement is inherently flawed Past skirmishes in the Truth War and their effect on the Church The importance of truth and certainty in a postmodern society How to identify and address the errors and false teachings smuggled into churches "[The postmodern age] is the age of no truth, an age that has reached a point of deadly fatigue when it comes to facing the truth?a generation that no longer believes truth can be known. Dr. John MacArthur knows better, and he is armed with the courage to confront this age with a bold defense of truth. . . . His argument is compelling, his defense of truth is brilliant, and his concern for the church is evident on every page. The evangelical church desperately needs this book, and it arrives just in time." ?R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
Description : This is a compilation of a true-life account, which took place in a Cult Community called The Synagogue, 'church' of all Nations, Ikotun-Egbe, Nigeria; where the author was trapped for over a decade with other devotees through hypnotism and brainwashing. She had documented her journey into this community, who uses religious garb to cover their nefarious operation to lure the innocent into occultism. She wrote how they lived, how they were systemic initiated into the dark world of deceit, and terriorized to swear allegiance to secrecy. Finally, her escape was a grand style of Jehovah. This is to EDUCATE people and to give ALL THE GLORY back to God, for His Amazing Saving Grace, His constant Love and His abiding Presence. She said, "If I should denied the world this truth, I became a partaker of evil and Hellfire would have been my eternal abode. I am under obligation and indebted to share; I cannot keep it to myself; it burns in my bones. I will also like to use this as a means of restoring the souls of those who have fallen away due to this global deception of T.B. Joshua." This Book is a societal mirror for everyday people, it is saying that, each person has ability to discover who God is individually, without depending on another man. This is to stand as a guide to the blind, as a warning to the gullible, and as a light to the simple; because what causes people to panic, and run helter skelter in search of an intermediary between them and their Creator is still prevalent in the world, such as sickness, affliction, trouble, confusion, disease, barrenness, joblessness, etcetera. What drives people to run from one prophet to another prophetess both false and genuine, which can cause them to eventually fall into error is still at large. Those things that pressurizes people daily, and can cause them to be knocking on the doors of prayer contractors and spiritual arrangers, intending to cut deals with 'God' if possible; rather than to go on their knees and be calling upon their Creator for Mercy and a turnaround is still thriving in the world today. Evil seems to run rampant everywhere. What we need is Peace in God and holding unto His Word. These agents of satan are only having breakthrough at your breakdown. Beware of miracle peddlers, Beware of false prophets, and Beware of false teachers, Jesus warned. This is their time, Run for your life!
Description : Supported by critical theoretical frameworks, this book is a purposeful engagement with bodies of knowledge rooted in popular culture, yet routinely excluded from -common sense- visions of curriculum. Aimed at teachers as well as teacher-educators, the book examines areas such as Disney, African American stand-up comedy, intersections of film/disability and race, as well as video games. Going beyond an engagement with theory, through the use of these alternative curricular epistemologies the authors provide sample lesson plans that clearly illustrate the possibilities of a more critical yet permeable outlook on curriculum, with the ultimate aim of fragmenting the mythical dichotomy between the world of academics and the lived reality of youth."
Description : Ingenious automatons which appeared to think on their own. Dubious mermaids and wild men who resisted classification. Elegant sleight-of-hand artists who routinely exposed the secrets of their trade. These were some of the playful forms of fraud which astonished, titillated, and even outraged nineteenth-century America's new middle class, producing some of the most remarkable urban spectacles of the century. In The Arts of Deception, James W. Cook explores this distinctly modern mode of trickery designed to puzzle the eye and challenge the brain. Championed by the "Prince of Humbug," P. T. Barnum, these cultural puzzles confused the line between reality and illusion. Upsetting the normally strict boundaries of value, race, class, and truth, the spectacles offer a revealing look at the tastes, concerns, and prejudices of America's very first mass audiences. We are brought into the exhibition halls, theaters, galleries, and museums where imposture flourished, and into the minds of the curiosity-seekers who eagerly debated the wonders before their eyes. Cook creates an original portrait of a culture in which ambiguous objects, images, and acts on display helped define a new value system for the expanding middle class, as it confronted a complex and confusing world.
