Israel FIRST! is reshaping the thinking of the Blood Moons, Shemitah and Jubilee.

With forewords by Mark Biltz (Author, Blood Moons) and Nena Benigno (CBN Asia—Philippines)

It wasn’t easy to stand out amongst the foreboding and proclaim God’s hope in the Blood Moons, God’s patience in the Shemitah cycle, and God’s restoration in the Coming Jubilee.

Why has God, so far, blessed the accuracy of this book? Perhaps because we view everything through the lens of Israel First!

But only half of this book has come to pass! The other predictions are due THIS YEAR and beyond!

Order Israel FIRST! today, and be that person who can explain God’s unfolding purposes to others!

“Here is a unique book written by two unique people, an Orthodox Israeli Jew and an American Evangelical Christian. From them you will get answers to your many questions.”
“Every lover of the Scriptures interested in the future of man should have this information and can do no better than to begin with this book.”
“Besides the meaty content, Israel FIRST! truly breaks new ground as a prophecy book written jointly by an Orthodox Israeli and an evangelical Christian.”
Christine Darg, The Jerusalem Channel
“This is a very welcomed, scholarly project that will no doubt strengthen Jewish-Christian relations, in times when both respective groups are being marginalized. I cannot recommend this work highly enough. I too look forward to times of spiritual enrichment through the study of this material.”
“A book which makes the Bible relevant by connecting Jewish and Christian beliefs is to be lauded.”
Dr. Susanna Kokkonen
“True Biblical understanding can only be found from the perspective of Israel FIRST!”
Rev. Gary Cristofaro
“Read the book and be informed regarding the scientific, historic and biblically prophetic aspects of this pivotal season of history.”
Keren Hannah Pryor
