Product Description

Never before have so many people felt so much foreboding about the direction the world is headed. People are confused as they are fascinated, struggling to sort out who to trust, what might happen, when it might happen and whether the end of days is near.

This book breaks new ground as the first Christian prophecy book jointly written by a Christian and an Orthodox Israeli Jew. Bob O’Dell and Gidon Ariel co-founded Root Source, which offers Jewish Roots to Christians. But the greatest leap in prophetic insight comes from a stunning decision to see Israel not as a tiny new nation partnering with the United States to survive, but as the emerging leader, first of all nations, mandated by God to showcase His existence and demonstrate moral principles to the rest of the world.

***Limited time offer: Exclusive signed editions of both Israel First and Psalms, with signatures from Root Source Co-Founder Gidon Ariel and Director of Israel365, Rabbi Tuly Weisz

About the authors:

Gidon Ariel is the founder and CEO of Root Source. Gidon made Aliyah to Israel in 1978 at age 14, and spent close to a decade in advanced Jewish studies institutes (Yeshivas) and the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Raised as an Orthodox Jew, Gidon has kept Jewish traditions his entire life. Quite unexpectedly, in 2005, he felt a personal call from Hashem (God) to begin to reach out to Christians in friendship, to bless and educate them about Jewish life, thought, and insights about Hebrew Scriptures.

Bob O’Dell is an evangelical Christian, former high-tech executive with Motorola and Wintegra, and astronomy enthusiast. Living in Texas, Bob has worked with Israeli Jews for over 25 years. Gidon and Bob founded Root Source to promote Gidon s vision of Israeli Jews teaching Christians worldwide.

In the Bible

You shall plant your land for six years and gather its produce. On theseventh year you shall let it rest and withdraw from it, so thatthepoor of your people will eat and the remainder shall be eaten by animals of the field; and you shall do the same with your vineyard and olive grove."
--EXODUS (23:10, 11)

If the earth is managed according to God's design, even animals benefit and the environment is enriched. This is a testement to faith in God. In this book, the authors present our findings, based on biblical viewpoints, regarding four related phenomena: the Blood Moons, the Shemitah (Sabbath Rest Year), Promises to Israel, and the Year of Jubilee. Some of this material is not pleasant to read, but know this:While we expect God to intercede in history, and difficult days are coming, this is not simply a book that predicts bad news. As a matter of fact, the good news we cover is much more than a silver lining beneath the dark cloud.

    I bought this book for my husband, he says its one of the best books he’s read on this subject. I have tried to hurry him to finish it so I can read it, but our pastor says he wants it before me. So wait I shall, but knowing that if these two men have enjoyed and learned then I shall too.
