From the get-go, my heart was touched by the love felt for the land of Israel, and the Arab people. It is a well written, knowledgeable, inspiring read. Different from many other "prophecy" books today. Even interesting facts about the Zodiac, which I have stayed away from because I called it Astrology, I now realize God created the "signs" in the stars for us and it's not "mystical" like some have made it out to be, but Biblical in it's roots. A well needed book that shows God's heart for His people Israel. Ray Bentley backed up his stories and teaching with relevant Scriptures. I really recommend this book for all Christians who are looking at the "signs of the times" and the soon return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In The Holy Land Key: Unlocking end-times prophecy through the lives of Gods people in Israel, Ray Bentley brings to life end times prophecy like no other pastor Ive 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.
It took me longer than usual to get through this book and post a review. While there were some parts of the book I enjoyed and found informative, there were other parts that did not seem to fit together. Looking at the history of Israel and current events could have provided enough information for a smaller book. However, the author also choose to look at Astrology and the various feasts and moon phases. These topics seemed to stray from the original premise of the book and seemed to add filler that did not serve a direct purpose. Rather, I felt that the author was leading me down rabbit trails, and I did not enjoy these pathways.
I received this book as part of the Blogging for Books Program in exchange for an honest review.
"I will bless those who bless you, and those who curse you, I will curse.." God's people will play an important role in the end times. God has not forgotten His Chosen People and we cannot either. As Christians, all our eyes should be on Israel. This was a great book to remind us all of how God is not finished with His people!
It took me a while but I just finished the book, The Holy Land Key by Ray Bentley with Genevieve Gillespie. I will tell you there are a lot of books out there that discuss the end times but this book hits a home run in my estimation. What a wonderful and refreshing way to look at the future by looking back, specifically at the prophecies and people of Israel. Understanding the signs and times in relation to God's people and the progression of the climax that we refer to as Armageddon.
From blood moons to the challenge of understanding Daniels 70 weeks it is all addressed in this book. If you are a student of the Bible you will appreciate this resource. It is in depth, yet simple enough for the average reader. You are sure to be challenged, and encouraged. Jesus will be returning, do you know what to be watching for?
Pick up a copy today and keep your Bible close, to look up the references.
