The Holy Land Key … A review

HOLYLANDKEY

 

 

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.

 

Real … Are you known as a Jesus follower?

Real: Becoming a 24/7 Follower of Jesus  -     By: Jamie Snyder<br /><br />

Jamie Snyder challenges the reader with this question: “If Sunday didn’t exist, would anyone know you were a follower of Jesus?”

The early church turned the world upside down. Communities knew who the Christians were, and the church grew rapidly.

Snyder describes the characteristics of a 24/7 Christian as possessing:

  • Unbridled generosity
  • Daring courage
  • Rebellious joy
  • Risky faith
  • Relentless hope
  • Scandalous grace
  • Mad love

If we were to examine our Christian walk, could we see these qualities?

“When a student sought to follow a rabbi, he was hoping to take on the rabbi’s yoke–the system of beliefs and interpretations the rabbi had either developed or carried on from previous generations.”

Snyder explains that “when a rabbi preached his own yoke, it was said that he taught with authority.”

If a student wanted to follow the rabbi, the rabbi asked him many questions, and if the student passed the test, the rabbi said, “Come, follow me.”

As a disciple, the student left family, friends, community, everything, in total surrender to the rabbi.

Jesus simply says, “Come, follow me.”

Have you left everything to follow Jesus?

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 Jamie Snyder and his passion for You. Bless him as he points people to You. Pour out Your Holy Spirit upon the church, so that we will turn the world upside down like the early church did for You.  We want to be known as 24/7 Jesus followers, so that we will point people to Jesus.
