Time Is Running Out--Are You Battle Ready?

Military leaders throughout history have used the strategy of deception to win wars--and Satan is a master strategist. He and his forces have enveloped the world in an unprecedented age of mass media disinformation, government psychological operations, social media censorship and other sophisticated mind-control techniques. 

In this eye-opening book, military and religious expert Colonel David J. Giammona and Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist Troy Anderson equip you to recognize--and resist--the propaganda and deceptive ideologies infiltrating the Church and society. 

The last days are coming. And if we don't know how to fight the enemy's pervasive lies, we will be swept away by them. Here are the powerful military and spiritual tactics you need to stand against the devil's rampant deceptions and be a light to a world in darkness.
"This book will prepare you to recognize and counter deception not only in politics, religion, media and science, but especially in yourself."--HUGH ROSS, astrophysicist; founder and president, Reasons to Believe

"A life-changing, hard-hitting and deeply insightful book. It's the training manual for the coming revival and revolution of the Church."--DR. ROBERT JEFFRESS, pastor; professor; television host, Pathway to Victory


"This book will prepare you to recognize and counter deception not only in politics, religion, media and science but especially in yourself."

Hugh Ross, astrophysicist; founder and president, Reasons to Believe

"I have had the privilege of teaching Bible eschatology at well-known seminaries and churches across the nation. Colonel David Giammona and Troy Anderson's critically important emphasis on disarming deception makes the truth riveting, communicates sound doctrine and is never boring. You have made the truth come alive! The Military Guide to Disarming Deception is a must-read for laypeople as well as an incredible book for pastors to read along with their congregations!"

Dr. Paul McGuire, bestselling author

"We live at a time when deception is absolutely rampant. My hope is that this book will serve as a light in the darkness to multitudes of people. David and Troy share powerful scriptural principles in these pages, and I encourage everyone to get The Military Guide to Disarming Deception and to share it with their family and friends. We truly are living in the end times, and the level of deception in our society is only going to get worse.

Michael Snyder, founder, The Economic Collapse Blog; nationally syndicated writer and media personality

"The Military Guide to Disarming Deception is a summoning to the courageous and faithful disciples of our Lord. It skillfully shows how to pick up the sword of the Spirit and put on the whole armor of God, which is to put on Christ as our vestments of battle armor."

Rev. Kevin Jessip, founder and president, The Return, The Renewal and the Global Strategic Alliance

"What I truly appreciate about The Military Guide to Disarming Deception is the detail the authors offer regarding how militaries actually operate to destroy their enemy and how as Christians we must learn these same tactics to defeat our enemies. Their descriptions about deception and indoctrination are eye-opening! Their discussion on complacency and subversion should be enough to motivate any true man or woman of God to action."

Paul E. Pickern, executive director, All Pro Pastors International

"Jesus told His disciples, 'Beware that no one deceives you' (see Matthew 24:4). We live in a world saturated with deception and lies. There is an all-out assault on truth striving to control our everyday lives. We need a strategy to combat and expose the plan of the enemy. The Military Guide to Disarming Deception is exactly that. A winning strategy is a battle we all face and cannot afford to lose."

Matt Hagee, lead pastor, Cornerstone Church

"Deception is a military tactic and the master deceiver uses it to wage war. This book shows us how to avoid these snares and stand firm against his lies and deception."

Jimmy Evans, host, The Tipping Point

"David Giammona and Troy Anderson do a masterful job of pairing Scripture with modern military warfare that brings the Bible to life. I was educated, entertained and encouraged by their insights and the warnings that come straight from God's Word."

Ken Harrison, chairman, Promise Keepers

"Over the course of history, deception has been an essential tool in warfare. In order to have Issachar wisdom to discern the way we and our nation should go, we must have spiritual tools to cut through the fog of spiritual war to achieve godly perspective, right actions and true freedom. In The Military Guide for Disarming Deception, Colonel David Giammona and Troy Anderson have given us an essential resource--the arsenal we need to successfully navigate our prevailing culture of deception and be confident and victorious spiritual warriors."

Major General Bob Dees, U.S. Army, retired; president, National Center for Healthy Veterans

"I believe deception has given rise to another gospel. Modern media and secularism have caused many to become lukewarm, and as such, many are being deceived. In The Military Guide to Disarming Deception, Colonel David Giammona and Troy Anderson prepare the Church with practical and spiritual tactics, techniques and procedures to help us navigate and discern the perilous times we are living in. Every believer must have this book in their last-day's library to be battle ready!"

Jim Bakker, founder, PTL Television Network; host, The Jim Bakker Show

"Giammona and Anderson have done it again! They have put together a masterpiece that will inform, enlighten and challenge your beliefs regarding deception in the end times. This is a must-have book that will guide through the maze of deceit that has blinded the world and confused the Church."

Dr. Thomas R. Horn, founder and CEO, SkyWatch TV

"The Military Guide to Disarming Deception pulls out all the stops and takes off the blinders for many who are in the midst of chaos and confusion. In a time of darkness and anxiety, Col. David Giammona and Troy Anderson have done the research and work for you! Every chapter is chock-full of scriptural insight, wisdom and knowledge that will guide you through the night and into the glorious light of His presence."

Rabbi Jonathan Bernis, president and CEO, Jewish Voice Ministries International
