The Holy Land Key … A review




In The Holy Land Key: Unlocking end-times prophecy through the lives of God’s people in Israel, Ray Bentley brings to life end times prophecy like no other pastor I’ve encountered. He shows us his friends and colleagues in Israel who are living it out.

“For Jews living in Israel today, prophecy is their present as well as their future.”

Stories of divine appointments, struggles, successes, and defeats make the prophecies come alive. I connected in a personal way with the individuals Bentley shared.

Bentley shows us the patterns God ordained from the beginning of the world. Patterns that are displayed first in the natural visible flesh, and then revealed in the spiritual realm.

Bentley weaves the seasons and Feasts of the Lord, the riddle of the Sphinx, the Gospel displayed in the Zodiac, and current events into a tapestry filled with rich colors, intricate patterns, and layered meanings.

He reveals a role in end-times prophecy for America. Christopher Columbus believed that his voyage to discover America was his mission. In his Book of Prophecies, Columbus claimed that the discovery of the New World was “the fulfillment of what Isaiah prophesied” in Isaiah 24:15 and 60:9.

Unlike many end-times prophecy books, The Holy Land Key offers more than in-depth revelation; it calls the reader to action and gives practical steps and resources available to enlist readers to get involved.

This is a book that I will refer to again and again. This is also a book that has spurred me on to learn more about the Gospel revealed in the Zodiac.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for an honest review.


My prayer:

Father, You are such an awesome God, revealing Your patterns and prophecies to those who love Your coming. Thank you for Ray Bentley, his Jewish friends, and all who contributed to the publication of The Holy Land Key. Bless the ministries mentioned in this book, and bless Israel and Your chosen people. Surround Israel with Your grace, love, and protection. We look forward to the fulfillment of Your Word.


Enjoy the pleasure of God’s company


Dutch Sheets addresses a much-needed subject for today’s busy Christian in The Pleasure of His Company. Sheets walks the reader through the Bible to examine followers like David, Joshua, Paul, Jesus, and even Samson. Throughout the book of short meditations, he peppers his writing with practical, everyday applications, many times stemming from his relationships and marriage.

Sheets ends each devotion with a prayer focused upon the Scriptures covering the chapter’s topic. He lists the Scriptures at the end of the prayer, so that the reader can look them up and meditate upon them further.

Sheets reminds the reader that if we set ourselves apart unto God, holiness will follow. This “setting apart” is not convenient or inexpensive,  but the pleasure of hearing God’s heart serves as a catalyst that creates a hunger for more intimacy.

The Pleasure of His Company came to me at just the right time to make a meaningful impact on my life. I was able to look at my relationships and apply the principles he addressed. I plan to purchase multiple copies of this book to give away.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group, in exchange for my honest review.

My prayer for you

Father, thank You for always being there for us. Bless, we pray, Dutch Sheets. Thank You for the pleasure of Your company. Teach us to wait upon You and rest in Your presence.
