The study of prophecy inspires elaborate timelines and speculation about which world leader might rise to power in the last days.

“Behold the sin-atoning lamb,

With wonder, gratitude and love;

To take away our guilt and shame,

See him descending from above…”

“Thou very Paschal Lamb, whose blood for us was shed, through whom we out of Egypt came, thy ransom’d people lead. Angel of Gospel-grace, fulfill thy character; to guard and feed thy chosen race, in Israel’s camp appear!
Throughout the desert way conduct us by thy light; be thou a cooling cloud by day, a cheering fire by night. Our fainting souls sustain with blessings from above; and ever on thy people rain the manna of thy love.”

A beautifully written series of essays exploring the subject of Yeshua (Jesus) as the Passover Lamb, the ultimate atonement and sacrifice for all mankind.

Ever wonder “why Israel”? Or what’s the big deal about Israel? Ever ask yourself if Israel is still relevant today? In his book “Why Israel?” Derek Prince addresses this often-asked question in light of scripture – God’s Word. 

“As Christians, we need to acknowledge our unfathomable debt to Israel and to always pray on the basis of that total indebtedness. The word Jew occurs eighty-four times in the Old Testament, and one hundred ninety-two times in the New Testament. On the other hand, the word Christian occurs only three times in the New Testament. You cannot fully understand the Bible unless you know something about Israel. And if you’re confused about Israel, you’re confused about the Bible.”

This is a timely read when we consider the recent daily news reports from around the world.

The question is, “Why is anti-Semitism still with us?” In this powerful booklet, Rabbi Jonathan Bernis answers this question and explains the biblical history of when anti-Semitism began and why there is still such hatred toward the Jewish people today.”

I pray that this booklet of prayers will be a help and an encouragement to you and that your life will be mightily blessed of God for your obedience!

The historical biography of perhaps the most disputed and fought over city on earth, the place that became the ‘centre of the world’. A must for anyone wanting to get to grips with the history of Jerusalem.

“Jerusalem is the universal city, the capital of two peoples, the shrine of three faiths; it is the prize of empires, the site of Judgement Day and the battlefield of today’s clash of civilizations. From King David to Barack Obama, from the birth of Judaism, Christianity and Islam to the Israel–Palestine conflict, this is the epic history of 3,000 years of faith, slaughter, fanaticism and coexistence.

How did this small, remote town become the Holy City, the ‘centre of the world’ and now the key to peace in the Middle East? In a dazzling narrative, Simon Sebag Montefiore reveals this ever-changing city in its many incarnations, bringing every epoch and character blazingly to life. Jerusalem’s biography is told through the wars, love affairs and revelations of the men and women – kings, empresses, prophets, poets, saints, conquerors and whores – who created, destroyed, chronicled and believed in Jerusalem. As well as the many ordinary Jerusalemites who have left their mark on the city, its cast varies from Solomon, Saladin and Suleiman the Magnificent to Cleopatra, Caligula and Churchill; from Abraham to Jesus and Muhammad; from the ancient city of Jezebel, Nebuchadnezzar, Herod and Nero to the modern times of the Kaiser, Disraeli, Mark Twain, Rasputin and Lawrence of Arabia.

Drawing on new archives, current scholarship, his own family papers and a lifetime’s study, Montefiore illuminates the essence of sanctity and mysticism, identity and empire in a unique chronicle of the city that is believed will be the setting for the Apocalypse. This is how Jerusalem became Jerusalem, and the only city that exists twice – in heaven and on earth.”



Why Christians Support the Jewish State- Christian Zionism explored. 

David Brog went behind the headlines to find the truth about Christian Zionism. By spending time with Christian Zionists, attending their churches and events, and reading their books and publications, Brog discovered the real motives and goals of an increasingly powerful political movement.

In the process, Brog became convinced he was tapping into something far deeper than politics. Brog, a Jew, came to believe that he was witnessing the birth pangs of a Christian/Jewish reconciliation that has been over two millennia in the making. In this important book, David Brog stands the conventional wisdom about Christians and Jews on its head. In so doing, he helps to further the very reconciliation he seeks to chronicle.
