“Ezekiel foretold what would happen to the Jewish people and the Land of Israel in its totality,” Chapter 36 – Happened Already! Chapter 37 In Process and Chapter 38 – 39 Next! – The Gog and Magog War .
“I will cause the cities to be inhabited, and the waste places shall be builded. And the land that was desolate shall be tilled, whereas it was a desolation in the sight of all that passed by.” Ezekiel 36:33-34
As the world’s first-ever photo journalistic book showing Israel’s development from desolation to modernization, Hershey’s dream is that “Ancient Prophecy/Modern Lens” will be used for generations to come as a stunning, visual history about Israel. “Should we exceed our crowdfunding goal, the extra money will be used to print the book in Hebrew, providing Israelis with a beautiful and meaningful resource to better appreciate that they are fulfilling ancient prophecy by living in the Holy Land.”
The “then and now” photo comparisons presented in “Ancient Prophecy/Modern Lens: The Land of Israel Reawakens” portray images from southern Negev desert farms to booming and flourishing coastal cities. The City of Tel Aviv.
“I am motivated to create this book by my love of the Bible, the Land of Israel and God’s chosen people,” expressed Hershey to Breaking Israel News. “This book is a recognition that God is faithful in fulfilling His Biblical promises. My hope is that others around the world will recognize the times in which we live and be a part of the fulfillment of Ezekiel 36:36 where he states, ‘Then the nations that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD have build-ed the ruined places, and planted that which was desolate; I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.’”
