It’s always good to be home in Israel, where I lived for 20 years.
.
This picture was taken in Bat Yam, Israel, a little town on the Mediterranean Sea, where I lived for 20 years. Bat Yam means “The Daughter of the Sea” It’s a very beautiful place with 3.2 km (2 mi) long promenade along the ocean lined with many café’, pubs and restaurants. The city has six beaches, one of which is protected by a breakwater.  When I lived in Israel, I used to come here often to breath the fresh air of the sea, to rest from the day heat and to see wonderful sunsets.
.
In Israel it’s hard to find a quite place. People are everywhere.  Even in the very early morning hours many people are already at the beach. In Bat Yam, Israel there are many hotels, you can always hear foreign languages, because of many visitors coming and staying in Israel for vacation. They choose Bat Yam, Israel because it’s a very lively and exotic area.
.
Many different ethnic groups of people live in Bat Yam, Israel. There are many secular Jews as well as a ultra orthodox religious groups. There are Jews from Russia, Ukraine, Ethiopia, Morocco, Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Poland, France and more.
.
So many wonderful memories associated with this place. Some of my best songs were born in my soul right here, in Bat Yam, Israel.
.
I just want to praise my Adonai (Lord) for bringing me here again and again. Thank you, Abba for your love and faithfulness. “I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.” (Psalm 63:4)

Title: The Christian Outdoorsman
By: Steven G. Coy
ISBN #978-0970853189
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Is God at work in the lives of those who trust Him? You'll recognize His fingerprints, including two profound miracles, as you read these pages of real-life adventures.
.
The Christian Outdoorsman by Steven George Coy offers readers an engaging read through ten tales of authentic, real-life hunting adventures that glorify God.  Shedding light on God’s greatness, and the grandeur of nature through the revealing of the majestic mountains of Wyoming and Colorado, to the hill country of Texas, this book is filled with big-game hunting stories.
.
In these rugged adventures through the wilderness, the book appeals to the man of faith, the outdoorsman, and the hunter, revealing hunts of Rocky Mountain sheep, mule deer and whitetails, the elk or wapiti, and wild turkey. Relying on his Christian faith, the author leads readers inside these hunters’ thoughts, experiences and insights. Enlightened by prayers that are offered and recorded for the benefit of the reader, some of God’s miracles and His evident hand upon our lives certainly help the reader to recognize the greatness of God, thus inspiring deeper faith and trust in Him.
.
God is at work. He is with you and is faithful to those who put their trust in Him. With openness and sincerity, the author gives insight through true accounts of divine protection and guidance. God’s character is glorified, His Word magnified, and readers receive hope and encouragement for their own personal journey of faith.  Men who love the outdoors will appreciate this book.  It is currently coupled with an incredible Limited Time Offer of two free gifts – The Jesus Film on DVD (currently being used worldwide to bring thousands to Christ), and a copy of the New Testament in paperback.
.
This book is highly recommended for the man in your life who loves God and the rugged outdoors. The Christian Outdoorsman is a very unique book and a refreshing read.  It also offers great hope for those seeking God, and just wanting to see some evidence or proof of His existence.
.

Bob Palumbo writes Unlocking Creation: God’s True Nature Revealed. Ever wondered about how the world came to be? About gravity? About science? Who God is and what it all means to you?
.
The author invites readers to discover with him through a journey of key Biblical insights that reveal scriptural truths, presenting God as the Creator of Heaven and Earth. Shedding light on Creation, the Cosmos, our humanity, our will, and our emotions, thus revealing the majestic nature of God and His plan, the author looks at Genesis to Revelation. Stating that God is the Grand Designer and Divine Creator, the author offers scripture verses proclaiming that all of Creation speaks boldly. Explaining this, God’s Divine order and balance of the Universe is presented throughout as the author offers a Biblical view of history and important Biblical figures.
.
Intertwined as chapter titles are songs that bring deeper meaning and an enjoyable read. Eye-opening, this book gives answers through the exploration of Who God is and His nature thus revealing Truth and the truth of God’s Word. As the author states, The goal is to help us learn what to look for and where to find these clues that our Creator has revealed about Himself and His character for those who diligently seek Him.
.
Beginning with witty analogies by the author from the infamous movie, The Wizard of Oz, gives readers clues as the author speaks that there is someone Who is behind the curtain. Although, He is not a fraud, but is the Truth of all that we are and all that we see in Creation. Divided into four parts: In the Beginning, In His Own Image, In His Infinite Wisdom, and In the End, the book relates the will, humanity, the importance of making the right choices, and God’s divine plan for salvation, noting that we are all created in His image and were meant to be Christ-like.
.
Song titles that enhance each chapter are: Here Comes the Sun, Starry Starry Night, Beautiful Noise, Cold As Ice, I Wanna Be Like You, Love is in the Air, Let’s Stay Together, Cat’s In Cradle, Keeper of the Stars, If You Want Me To, Gotta Serve Somebody, Born to Fly, Angels Among Us, and Love Can Build a Bridgerelate our story and God’s desire to be in Holy communion with us. Concluding with Afterthoughts: Sunset, the author lovingly ends the book with an invitation to salvation and offers hope with a warm imagery of a sunset. The book brings great understanding as to who we were created for, who God is, and encourages all readers that we all have purpose and meaning in this thing called life. And last, but not least, that all is well with the soul when God is in the midst. 10.0 stars ~ CBM

Title: Mantis Force – Fiero One
By: R. J. Amezcua
ISBN #978-0-9980748-0-1
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Mantis Force: Fiero One by R.J. Amezcua is Book One of a 3-part Sci-Fi action thriller series called the Fiero Series. Taking readers on a fantastic exploration into the past, present and future ages and galaxies of Quintástraya, a group of 5 galactic systems, the book begins in “The year of our Lord 2068”.
.
The rise and fall of good versus evil catapult readers into an exciting futuristic space thriller as the end of the Second Age of the Quintástraya draws near. The Guardian victories have come to an end and a new age is dawning, but not before an ancient prophecy begins to unfold. One that comes from the deep recesses of space known as the Dead Zone. Dark forces and lawlessness are at work, and threatening this hostile take over is Captain Asafa and his crew of the Osparatta that are destined to hold back the darkness until reinforcements arrive.

Majestic characters, good and bad, noble and evil, intertwine this galactic journey into the deep recess of space filled with battles, sub-plots and intrigue that lead readers into climatic journeys across the ages of time.  Filled with creative imagery, dark forces of the spiritual realms, visible and invisible, sorcery, intrigue, Biblical overtones, suspense and a plethora of new vocabulary encompass this read.
.
As the depleted resources of Captain Asafa’s ship and crew, additionally weathering many weary battles, Captain Asafa remains steadfast. Along the way, the author takes the readers to exploits, galaxies and planets. Abba El is introduced as the all-loving Father. Reflecting Biblical figures and parallels embodied in the Bible, this is a Sci-Fi thriller has many unique characters and inspiring scenes that depict a multi-dimensional existence that draws readers into an epic battle for as good that is surely colliding with evil forces that threatens the life of every inhabitant and “every single human and alien race in the Quintástraya.”  
.
Highly recommended page turner for science fiction lovers. This read would make a fantastic movie.

Inspiring, encouraging - designed to empower and equip you to be everything you were created to be.
.
The author offers those who have lost hope or that are feeling disillusioned by life beginning with encouragement from Scripture as stated in Romans 8:28 (NLT), And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
.
He then proposes an astounding revelation that will bring much hope to those who read this book: You have the ability to choose. This may sound trivial to some, but it sheds light on the fact that circumstances or past mistakes do not define who you are “Destined to Be” in God.
.
With this fresh insight and sound Biblical wisdom this book is a practical read that announces to all readers individually that, You are not the sum total of all your past experience and circumstances and you have the opportunity to choose the direction of your life. Shedding light that many are at a crossroads in their life, the author re-focuses and brings powerful transformation in the lives of others by pointing them into their God-given destiny with a practical guide map developed from Scripture. 
.
Divided into two parts, with nine keys, such chapters included are: The Development Process (Part A & B), The Enemy of Your Destiny, From Everest to Africa, Destiny is a Team Sport, & God’s Positioning System, The Penguin King, Breaking Past the Barriers, The Pinocchio Trap,  & The Leap, the author gives readers a road map to finding your destiny in God’s purpose for your life, while offering advice on avoiding pitfalls and traps of the enemy. The author additionally speaks on such facets of the Kingdom such as: balance, the Armor of God, perseverance, unity, faith, trust, forgiveness, overcoming rejection, fear and false beliefs, healing of heart wounds and unforgiveness versus forgiveness. God’s provision and identity in Christ is boldly proclaimed as repentance, courage, and focus bring sound Biblical wisdom to the reader. The author has done an incredible job with outlining Kingdom principles that are designed to encourage, build faith, and offer Biblical guidance to the reader that ushers in transition from existence to destiny. 
.
I cannot recommend this book enough. . . why? The author states the Truth (and offers Biblical, yet down to Earth advice) without being overly critical or judgmental. He lets people know the real pursuits in life, and gives a practical pathway to get there. His book is also based on firm Biblical principles of the Kingdom of God that will lead to increased peace, fruitfulness and joy. With that said, this is an easy-to-read book that brings to light scriptural truths in layman’s terms, that will lead to righteous living. Reading this book will bring God’s blessings for those that follow through with an open and obedient heart. I also believe this book is going help those that are stuck in the mud to get out while they unlock their true potential in their God given destiny. Get your copy of Destined to Be at Amazon

Walking with Angels & Dragons: The Midwife’s Heritage (Book 1) offers insight into the heavenly realms, the Father’s heart for all, and focuses on the Intercessor’s role as a Midwife. With true-life experiences of those who have experienced the supernatural realm, including those who have had encounters with the angelic and the demonic, Savata Chapman, highlights individuals whom have seen Heaven or Hell or had visions of these future destinations. Written with the truth of God’s Word, the author brings readers an eloquently depicted book that describes one’s heritage as a child of God and encourages those warriors of faith (Intercessors) to understand the dimensions of prayer, declaration, and faith that brings transformation to those in need.
.
Additionally by incorporating Kingdom principles of Divine inheritance of the Midwife, this book is recommended for mature vessels in Christ to assist, educate and reveal the multi-dimensional of the spiritual realm intervening into the natural world. As an Intercessor, one has the ability to birth the supernatural into the natural and to bring God’s Kingdom down to Earth. What an amazing reality! This is a wonderful calling and heritage for anyone that is motivated within their spirit to experience the Kingdom of God in ways they never thought possible. Also, providing insight into dreams, visions and how the Kingdom functions, the author offers deep Scriptural truths that increase faith and teach Biblical principles that will only enhance one’s journey in the prophetic and intercessory role.
