Israel FIRST! The Key to Understanding the Blood Moons, Shemitah, Promises to Israel, and the Coming Jubilee
In 2015, shortly before Rosh Hashana of the current Hebrew year 5776, Bob O’Dell and Gidon Ariel published Israel FIRST! The Key to Understanding the Blood Moons, Shemitah, Promises to Israel, and the Coming Jubilee. In it, the authors laid out their theory about how all of these components come together to shed light on what God is doing in Israel and the whole world, and how in fact Israel is a light tower for God’s plans. These plans call for Christians and all God-fearers to turn to Him and especially to focus on their relationship with His People, Israel, the Jewish People.
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!

|“Besides the meaty content, Israel FIRST! truly breaks new ground as a prophecy book written jointly by an Orthodox Israeli and an evangelical Christian.”|
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.”|
