Is America on a collision course with God?
There is a direct correlation between the alarming number of massive disasters striking America and her leaders pressuring Israel to surrender her land for "peace."
Costing hundreds of lives and causing hundreds of billions of dollars' damage, dozens of disasters including devastating earthquakes, raging fires, hurricanes, floods, tsunamis, and violent tornadoes have hit America–and always within twenty–four hours of putting pressure on Israel.
What can you do as an individual––and what can America do––to change the direction of our country in relation to Israel and prevent the increasing number of calamities?
God’s everlasting promise to bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel is still in effect today. Throughout its history, America has been in a unique position to bless the Jewish people, and has experienced many blessings as a result. In more recent years, however, America has failed to consistently stand by Israel and suffered dramatic disasters.
In this interesting and thorough book, McTernan traces the history of the Jewish people in America and how America’s spectacular rise to power was tied to blessing the Jews. He examines America’s integral role in fulfilling God’s plan for the rebirth of the Jewish nation, and details the times when our nation defaulted on this call. Through a step–by–step analysis of political events, McTernan gives conclusive proof that God’s judgment on those who curse Israel is still active. In every case where America has failed Israel, it has faced dramatic consequences within 24 hours.
John P. McTernan is a lifetime student of American history, and has studied biblical prophecy since becoming a Christian in the early 1970s. He authored the acclaimed God's Final Warning to America and co–authored the best seller Israel: The Blessing or the Curse.

David Teems is the author of TYNDALE: The Man Who Gave God An English Voice [Thomas Nelson, 2012]. His other books include MAJESTIE: The King Behind the King James Bible [Thomas Nelson, 2011], DISCOVERING YOUR SPIRITUAL CENTER: The Power of Psalm 119 [Leafwood Publishers, 2011], AND THEREBY HANGS A TALE: What I Really Know About the Devoted Life I Learned From My Dogs [Harvest House, 2010], and TO LOVE IS CHRIST: 365 Devotions [Thomas Nelson, 2005].
There are two sides to David Teems (more if you look close enough). Having made his living for years playing music, he began the slow migration to books. Published in 2005, music was shuttled off to the margins. In 2012, he was given old Martin guitar, and with it the joy of music again. With the five published books he’s written, he intends to record more music as well. Look for ALL THAT MATTERS, a new recording, by Fall ’15. His heart is literary. There is a lyric beneath all the noise.
Between imagination and faith there exists a kind of twilight. That simply means in the divide between them, eyes are irrelevant. Sight comes by another method, by a deeper, more reliable sense. “We walk in faith and see not” (2 Corinthians 5:7 Tyndale New Testament).—TYNDALE: The Man Who Gave God An English Voice [p. 46]
David grew up in Atlanta, GA and graduated with a BA in Psychology from Georgia State University.

Talking about there is No GPS or App to get you to your destiny. You have to walk it out by faith.
