Armageddon Deception


The Eschatology of Islam & Zionism
A Biblical Response

How and Why We Really Can Have Peace in the Middle East
—with a Sound and Biblical Gospel Eschatology Message

The eschatology (study of Bible prophecy) of Islam, Israeli Zionism and Evangelical Zionism perpetuates conflict in the Middle East because each system holds to three un-biblical views:

1) There is “sacred” or “holy land” today for God’s people to conquer and inhabit.
2) The Second Coming of Jesus or the Messiah is going to come “very soon,” to usher in…
3) the end of the age “holy war” of Armageddon or the battle of Gog and Magog.

Scripture is clear that New Covenant age believers are “in Christ,” not “in the land.” And John, in Revelation, correctly identified the coming of Christ upon the clouds associated with the war of Armageddon or Gog and Magog to be fulfilled “shortly” and “soon” in the historical events of the Roman / Jewish war just before the Temple was destroyed in AD 67 – AD 70, not in our future.

Since Muslims often argue that Jesus never claimed to be God, this critical topic receives a great deal of coverage, proving that the Scriptures teach the contrary. This is especially true since modern Jews also reject Jesus’ claims to be God and accuse Christians of “inventing a new religion separated from the OT or rabbinic traditions.

If the Messiah / Jesus didn’t come upon the clouds to judge Jerusalem and desolate the Temple in AD 70 (cf. Dan. 7:13; 9:24-27; 12:7; Mal. 3–4; Mt. 16:27-28; Mt. 23–25), then none of the above religions can be said to be true!  However, if Preterism is true and Jesus did come when prophesied, then Christ is vindicated in His claims of being the great “I AM/God” and a “Faithful and True Witness.”

This is a dangerous time in which to live–a time when these three religious systems are attempting to self-fulfill their end time “holy war,” and the Globalist Cabal are more than willing to help start it in order to usher in their “Great Reset” and one world government.  This book identifies the worldviews that seek to destroy Christianity and gives the reader an accurate view of Bible prophecy that can aid in forming a more Scriptural and Constitutional foreign policy in the Middle East.

About the Cover

Imagine the World Economic Forum (WEF) leaders, Klaus Schwab and Yuval Noah Harari, sitting around a table at Davos with the corrupt and unelected elite—the Rothschilds, the IMF, and the Bilderberg Group—hashing out plans to impose on the world.  Front and center on the agenda of these puppet masters is ushering in their centuries long plan of WWIII—a holy war between Israel (the State of Rothschild) and the Muslim world.  The purpose? To create global chaos and instability through “plandemics,” lockdowns, the climate cult, economic collapse, starvation, reverse migration, and nuclear genocide.  This will guarantee a smooth rollout of their intended one world CBDC digital currency, which will enslave the masses and create a modern-day feudal system.

Their goal is a “Great Reset,” to “Build Back Better” out of the ash heap of a once great Western Civilization built upon Christianity and freedom.  The eschatological endgame of this elite group is to bring about their Fourth Industrial Revolution guided by the religious philosophy of Nihilism, Technocracy, and Transhumanism.  Believing the world should be governed by a class of scientists, engineers, and bankers (not by “We the People”), they play God by planning a 95% reduction in world population and merging themselves with computers/droids/robots to download their souls and “live forever.”  Israeli Professor Yuval Noah Harari, who functions as the high priest and top advisor of Klaus Schwab’s death cult, is crucial to ushering in this Fourth Industrial Revolution of Transhumanism. The following boastful statements by Harari, taken from his lectures, public interviews, and World Economic Forum events, reveal the depth of this evil agenda:

  • “Humans are now hackable animals. The whole idea that humans have this ‘soul’ or ‘spirit,’ and nobody knows what’s happening inside them, and they have free will—that’s over!”
  • “I strongly believe that given the technologies we are now developing, within a century or two at most, our species will disappear. I don’t think that in the end of the 22nd century, the earth will still be dominated by homo sapiens.”
  • “What you tried to do a thousand years ago with the priest preaching from the pulpit you will be able to do in a far more invasive way in ten or fifteen years with all kinds of brain-computer interfaces and direct biological interventions.”
  • “Data might allow elites to do something more radical than just build digital dictatorships. By hacking organisms, elites may gain the power to reengineer life itself. Once you hack something, you can usually reengineer it.”
  • “Now in the past many tyrants and governments wanted to do it, but nobody understood biology well enough, and nobody had enough computing power and data to hack millions of people. Neither the Gestapo or the KGB could do it. But soon, at least some corporations and governments will be able to systematically hack all the people.”
  • “And if indeed we succeed in hacking and engineering life, this will be not just the greatest revolution in the history of humanity, this will be the greatest revolution in biology since the very beginning of life four billion years ago.”
  • “Science is replacing evolution by natural selection with evolution by intelligent design. Not by intelligent design of some God above the clouds, but our intelligent design and the intelligent design in our clouds—the IBM cloud, the Microsoft cloud—these are the new driving forces of evolution.
  • “Today we have the technology to hack human beings on a massive scale. In this time of crisis, you have to follow the science.  It’s been often said, ‘You should never allow a crisis to go to waste.’ People could look back a hundred years from now and define the Corona epidemic as the moment when a new regime of surveillance took over, especially surveillance under the skin.”
  • “My brain, my body, my life—does it belong to me, or to some corporation or government, or perhaps to the human collective?”

The United Nations and World Economic Forum are run by the children and grandchildren of the WWII Nazi regime cult and their “scientists” – some of whom the U.S. government protected and took in to perform deadly research and experiments.  The above quotes accurately portray where Klaus Schwab and the global elite want to take humanity. Through their Fourth Industrial Revolution of Transhumanism, their One World Government system will finally be able to control the population.  This group wants to play God by hacking the human body and taking away human rights and foundational freedoms.

At present (2023), this group is fomenting more and more hatred and division with their race wars, class wars, ethnic wars, and gender wars.  Using the politically ill-informed “useful idiots” to further their goals, they also make a “Trojan Horse” of the “Christian” or Evangelical Zionist movement, Talmudic Zionist movement, and Islamic Sharia law to embed themselves in governments around the world—especially the U.S. government. It is quite revealing that the majority of U.S. senators and congressmen must sign an agreement with the Jewish lobby, AIPAC, pledging their unwavering support for Israel both financially and in Middle East conflicts. There is also the problem of many of our politicians having dual citizenship with Israel.  This allegiance to Israel trumps any interests of their constituents, state, or country. A governing body whose alliance is to a foreign state undermines the national security of the country and the people they are supposed to represent.

The purpose of this book is to educate and give the reader a true understanding of “end times” according to scripture. Knowing the eschatological beliefs of the main religions of the world is key to understanding global politics. An educated public will be able to see through the fog and confusion perpetrated on them by a small group in power, a group who uses insidious and subtle tactics of entire governments to manipulate populations into accepting—and even welcoming—their own demise.

In Gratitude

I wish to express my everlasting gratitude to my beloved wife, Denise, whose patience and longsuffering toward me and loving support in writing this volume has meant the world to me.

This book would have never come to fruition without Pastor David Curtis of Berean Bible Church inviting me to speak at one of our annual conferences where I lectured on the contents of this book. I had so many people over the years tell me that those lectures and subsequent articles needed to be turned into a book, so here it is.

Special thanks to Jeff McCormack in his labors on the cover design work and to Adam Maarschalk for his meticulous editing. It’s a blessing to have Full Preterist Christians gifted in these areas.

What others are saying about Armageddon Deception…

Don K. Preston, D. Div., author of multiple books and President of Preterist Research Institute,calls it a powerful, fully documented book:

“Far too many people are unaware that the Palestinians and the Jews lived in peaceful co-existence in the land called Israel/Palestine, until British and American foreign policy intervened and decided, based on a false view of eschatology, that they would support Israel in claiming that the land belonged exclusively to the Jews. With the Balfour Declaration and ensuing actions on the part of Britain and the US, the Middle East has been a cauldron of violence and bloodshed. Palestinians, thousands of them Christians – were violently forced from their generational homes.

All the while, American Dispensational Zionists, such as John Hagee, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robinson all sat by silently, refusing to condemn the violence against their Christian brethren! Why? Because of their false eschatology that insisted (insists still!!) that modern day Israel remains as God’s chosen, covenant people and that the land belongs to them by divine right.

Do you catch the power of the fact that people are dying because of a false view of the end times? For generations now, even American young people have died supporting Israel’s “divine right” to own the land. America’s support of that false doctrine and the ensuring violence against Arabs and Palestinians has resulted in turning the Islamic world into a growing threat against America.

In this powerful, fully documented book, Armageddon Deception, Mike Sullivan pulls back the veil on the shocking, troubling and dangerous doctrine of Zionism in all of its forms, whether political or religious. Citing a host of recognized sources, Sullivan powerfully shows that it is far past time that America – and the world – wakes up to the danger posed by the virulent Zionistic movement as well as the radical Islamic ideology. In sum, bad theology is killing thousands of young people! This should concern everyone who claims to believe in Christ!

This book may well shatter any naive worldview that you have of politics, of Israel and of Islam. Sullivan has done the world and Christianity a massive favor by bringing this work to the public and it deserves widespread circulation. What he has produced will not be welcomed with open arms by many. But for those who are looking for the Truth, and some solid suggestions for future peace, this book should be read and seriously considered by everyone – including the world leaders!”

Pastor David Curtis,, explains why reading this book matters:

“This is a thought-provoking book by my good friend Mike Sullivan.  This book will help you understand why eschatology matters.  Mike demonstrates how a faulty eschatology is driving American politics.  He pulls back the curtain to expose what is behind Zionism and the players involved.  This book exposes the evil behind Zionism in a clear and concise way.  You are guaranteed to learn some things about eschatology as Mike exegetes many biblical texts.  Give it a read, you won’t regret it.”

Pat Miletich, former UFC Champ, Trainer of Champions, UFC Hall of Fame member, Biological Soil to human health advocate, says the book provokes important questions:

“Armageddon Deception will bring the reader to a point, if they are self-searching and honest, to ask themselves what their beliefs truly are and are they concrete. This book will expose questions never before thought of, let alone asked of themselves.  Are we really in the end times?  How many generations have asked the same question?”

TJ Smith, author of The Last Semite, has high praises for the book:

“Armageddon Deception is an all-in-one, top-to-bottom, front to back compendium on the evil creation of Zionism.  Sullivan leaves no stone unturned as he deep dives into the Scriptural, and historical evidence that should dissuade all well-meaning Christians from following this ill-guided Rothschild-created political demonasty.  Mike Sullivan has long been known as a biblical theologian who takes the study of Scripture to new levels.  Mike covers all tentacles of Zionism, from Islam, Israeli, and Evangelical.  Keep an open mind and prepare to ingest numerous “red pills of truth.”  Monumental work, Mike!”

Karen Rogers, author of Racing With My Shadow, gives it two thumbs up:

“Spot on. This book is a must read, especially in today’s climate. To expose the lies, one must know the truth. ‘Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.’ –John 8:32. Thank you, Mike, for writing this book. Two thumbs up!”

Pastor Zach Davis of First Baptist Church Marked Tree in Arkansas calls it a must read:

“Bad theology has consequences. In this well written book, Mike Sullivan obliterates the irrational view of Zionism and exposes its faults to the core. Though secondary sources are included, you will find Mike’s exegetical work useful for your worldview and theology, especially his work in the Olivet Discourse. This is a must read for the serious student of Bible prophecy, and a piece that every political leader in America should have their hands on.”

Bible teacher Travis Drum calls Amageddon Deception a thought-provoking, exegetical masterpiece:

“Whenever I think of Armageddon Deception, the first word the comes to my mind is this—treasure.  Mike has gifted the church a truly invaluable gem with this work, covering a vast array of subjects under the blanket of eschatology.  In typical Mike Sullivan fashion, Armageddon Deception is a thought provoking, exegetical masterpiece that is sure to challenge your beliefs about Zionism, the last days, the second coming, and so much more.  For any serious student of God’s Word, this is one that you can’t afford to miss.”

Actor and Producer Brett Prieto says this book should be in everyone’s library:

“In the age where leading pastors – even political leaders – Shout, “we are living in “The End Times,” or decry “time is short for this planet,” author, speaker and apologist Michael Sullivan puts that rhetoric to rest with his masterful work, which is aptly titled, “Armageddon Deception.”  In this Clarion Call to the evangelicals who are held captive to the concept(s) of faulty [political] paradigms and bad eschatology, Sullivan peels the mask off to reveal the puppet Master’s behind it all.  He successfully documents his work and expounds upon it not only with history, but with biblical truth, which he skillfully exegetes from the Bible.

Armageddon Deception is a must have in your library.  It will shatter worldviews only to help rebuild a biblical one.  The results of this book will pull any honest Bible believing Christian [who is held captive to concepts], from their holy huddle, to only take action for Christ’s Kingdom!  The days of waiting to be whisked away in a “Rapture” are done!  The guess work of who are Gog and Magog is finished.  If one is triggered from the aforementioned statements, let me offer this trigger for those who subscribe to Darbyism (i.e. Premillennial Dispensationalism): Sullivan’s treatise will challenge your current position on eschatology, your stance on geopolitical Israel, and whether Jesus is a true or a false prophet in your model of End Times Bible prophecy.  Run to gauntlet, and get and read this book!”

Authors of The Return of Christ: Why are we still waiting?, Pete and Rachael Wrue, call it a well researched resource:

“This book is a great resource and very well researched.  We find ourselves referencing it time and time again.  Mike has done an excellent job covering the many facets of Eschatology.  Everything is thoroughly explained and includes several parallel charts comparing Scripture with Scripture.  He also shows the other side of the story regarding Zionism and Israel, making this book very relevant to the current controversy in the Middle East.  He does a great job explaining the imminecy passages in both the Old and New Testaments, as well as expounding the Olivet Discourse.  We highly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more abou wha the Bible REALLY has to say about the end times!”

Author and Bible teacher Robert Cruickshank highly recommends this timely book and gives the reasons why:

“This book reminded me of the question asked in the classic song:  “War, what is it good for?”  For many today, war is good for bringing about God’s plan and purpose in our own day and age.  But as Michael Sullivan demonstrates in this much needed work, the wars and rumors of wars, of which Jesus spoke, are in our distant past, not our future.  Armageddon is behind us; the Battle of Gog and Magog is over.  These, along with the rest of the “end times” prophecies of the New Testament, find their fulfillment in the first century AD.

While eschatology is not essential to one’s salvation, the implications of eschatology are nevertheless no trival matter. As Sullivan points out, misinterpreting fulfilled prophecy as unfulfilled is more than just an academic or intellectual mistake.  Eschatology matters, and ideas have consequences.  Serious cconsequences.  In this case, such misinterpretation can be (and often is) used to justify militant movements, horrific violence and even all-out war.

Sullivan’s contribution to this debate demonstrates that war is not the answer to the problems facing our world.  The answer is peace—peace that comes through the Prince of Peace.  It is only as people embrace Jesus and enter into the everlasting kingdom that He established, that God’s place and purpose can truly be realized in our own day and age and in our lives.  I highly recommend this timely book!”


As this second printing of Armageddon Deception is released, the events foretold within this book are starting to unfold. The first printing of Armageddon Deception (2021) predicted how the religions of Islam, Talmudic Zionism, and Evangelical Zionism desired to self-fulfill an end time holy war and that the global “elite” would help to facilitate it. This global cabal (New World Order/World Economic Forum/U.N./Rothschild Zionism and International Banksters) could start WWIII between Israel and the Muslim world. This would usher in their “Great Reset,” “Build Back Better,” or “2030 Agenda” one world global government goals.  The Rothschild dynasty has been involved in starting and profiting from previous World Wars, Revolutions, Civil Wars, etc., and it is no secret that they have been working on their global one world Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), which is about to be rolled out.  Like CV-19, the lockdowns, and the climate hoax/cult, all that is needed now is a string of global “crises” designed to weaken the financial institutions of the world to enable them to step in as the saviors.  While Islam, Talmudic Zionism, and Evangelical Zionism are trying to fulfill their end time “holy war” or “prophecies,” one must also focus on the globalists who know how to bring that war about and profit from it (both financially and through control) when the dust settles.      

Albert Pike (or whoever penned the famous letter ascribed to him detailing how three world wars would be rolled out) made it clear that one of the goals in starting WWIII between Israel and the Muslim world was to create a religious vacuum which this global cabal intended to fill.  When the Muslim version of the Second Coming of Jesus doesn’t happen, Israel’s Jewish militaristic Messiah doesn’t show up to usher in their version of a paradise on earth, and the “rapture” doesn’t take place for the Evangelical Zionists, one of two things will happen: there will be a religious vacuum that will be filled by this cabal of Technocrats/Transhumanists, or there will be a reformation in the area of eschatology whereby Preterism will greatly increase in popularity.  With the pressing realization that this inevitable clash could take place within the next ten to thirty years, I decided to write this book.  In the wake of these events, a truly Biblical Christianity, one which is not interested in supporting or starting “holy wars,” will be there to pick up the pieces and offer healing to the nations through the message of fulfillment and the gospel (cf. Rev. 22:2-17).

Unfortunately, since 1830 the Church has been infected with the Dispensational Zionism lie which teaches things are destined, and in fact, “prophesied” to get worse and worse in the world— and that the “end” or “rapture” is always “near” to bail out Christians right before things get really bad.  While some within this group do study the evil facing our world through the likes of Klaus Schwab/W.E.F./ U.N./ Rothschilds/Global Fascism, etc…, they do it in such a way as to make these people and organizations the imminent fulfillment of Matthew 24 or the book of Revelation and use this as alleged “proof” that they are going to be “raptured.”  Of course, this is exactly what the New World Order group wantsthem to think. This is why these deceivers do things like use “666” for the “vaccine” passport patent number. To Christians, “666” telegraphs that “the end and the rapture is near,” and so their mantra continues “why polish brass on a sinking ship,” a mentality that offers no long-term strategy to fight against this group who seeks to control and destroy them.

But what if Jesus was telling the truth—that the prophetic events of Matthew 24-25 were “near,” that the fulfillment of these things would happen in “this generation,” meaning the generation of his first century audience? What if the prophetic book of Revelation really was to be fulfilled “shortly,” with the “Beast” and “666” being Rome and Nero Caesar, and the war of Armageddon and Gog and Magog fulfilled during an imminent “3 ½ years” time frame between the Romans and Jews (AD 67 – AD 70)?  Not only would this have profound theological implications proving Christ’s deity and accuracy as a prophet, but the negative implications for the New World Order and Rothschild Zionist dynasty would be devastating!  This would mean that the “sleeping giant” (the Church) would finally awaken from her lazy slumber to confront her enemies head-on and develop a Biblical long-term cultural worldview.  The book you now hold in your hands is that wake-up call and serves as the real information warfare and message of our day!  Get this book into the hands of your Pastor and your local and national politicians so that they can be guided by Christ and the Kingdom of Heaven! It is high time for truth to prevail and for just laws and wise foreign policy to be implemented.
