Book Review: The Holy Land Key by Ray Bentley with Genevieve Gillespie

Don’t Just Read Prophecy. Step into Its Fulfillment.

The study of prophecy inspires elaborate timelines and speculation about which world leader might rise to power in the last days. But meanwhile, it’s far too easy to miss the significant prophetic signs contained in stories of biblical characters, in God’s creation, and in the lives and actions of today’s Israelis and Palestinians.

The Holy Land Key opens our eyes to little-known aspects of prophecy, including:
·         God’s master plan revealed in the seven Feasts of the Lord
·         The ingathering of God’s people, and the ways Israelis are hearing from God today
·         Significant prophetic patterns discovered in the lunar cycle
·         Awe-inspiring testimonies to God’s glory spelled out in the night sky
·         Glimpses of God’s future kingdom revealed in the stories of well-known figures from Scripture

For decades, author and pastor Ray Bentley has partnered with God’s people in Israel, including Judea and Samaria, the area known as the West Bank. There, he witnesses the fulfillment of prophecy firsthand. This is your introduction to prophetic signs that God reveals in sometimes unexpected ways. He does not want us to miss the work he is doing to usher in the coming Kingdom. 

Check out the author talking about the book, and then I'll share my review:


Biblical prophesy is one of those 'touchy' topics- people either believe in it, or they don't.I tend to be middle of the road- as in give me some proof and I'll believe. Bentley does just that in this book. He offers the read easy to understand facts, history and observances, to show where biblical prophesies have occurred (Jewish people back in Israel, which occurred in 1948), and where they may occur again. One has to seriously wonder when you hear news of animals fleeing Yellowstone and planes disappearing without any trace, whether they are just weird occurrences or prophesies coming true. After all, as Bentley shows in this book, God's pattern of revealing prophecy comes in layers-the natural world, then the It's enough to make even a fence straggler pause and wonder.This is not a long book, but the chapters are very concise and I recommend if you are Christian too read it and learn the background and history, to enable you to understand what may be occurring in our modern world. We highly recommend it for all pastors and bible leaders as well!
