“This book gave me peace of mind for our very degrading planet. It helped me to see that I am not ready for Jesus' return but thank you God for inspiring Pastor John to write this book. Peace to all of you out there, know you will not be alone, hold on to Jesus and live.”

“Very good information, well written, information every person should have.”

Format: Paperback

“This book is truly the most enriching study I've read to date on Daniel 11. The meaning of the verses leading up to Daniel 11:45 and 12:1, and their connection to similar verses in Revelation stood out with a clarity I'd not experienced before. I've no doubt that this third Jihad is fast approaching and will dramatically fulfill Bible prophecy. This publication could not be more timely - the fulfillment of these verses is surely close at hand. I now watch events in the Middle East with a new-found interest, knowing that these developments were revealed to us in the Good Book for a special reason, and that they are leading right up to the Second Coming.”

“I have always been interested in bible prophecy. This book is well written and concise. If you like history this book is for you. It takes you on a journey from Daniel to Revelation and points out how relevant these prophecies are to our day. I highly recommend this book. Well researched as shown by the numerous footnotes. It keeps your interest clear to the end.”

“I read the entire book in one day! I found it very interesting and informative. It makes the most sense of any prophetic explanation I have heard regarding Daniel 11.”

“The author could hardly make the connections of prophecies with historical and future events of a logical progression any more accurate or clear. John Witcombe masterfully connects previously fulfilled Bible prophecy through the course of exact historical accounts, AND yet-unfulfilled Bible prophecy in light of current geopolitical circumstances. Jerusalem Caliphate and the Third Jihad paints a plausible scenario for the main text under study: “And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.” Daniel 11:45. Witcombe brings out how the trilogy of France, Egypt, and Turkey were specifically involved in fulfilling an earlier prophecy [Dan. 11:40-43]. There is now a span of more than 200 years since then, and it seems reasonable that he would connect the prophecy now under consideration (Dan.11:45), to these known powers associated with the time and place as a basis for making a reasonable estimation in his identifying that power which is to “come to his end”; a kind of “pick up where we left off” type of approach providing some continuity to the passage of time. Profound features or characteristics that harmonize with the biblical description given there exist with today’s Islamic Turkey. And to add strength to his argument, Witcombe shows how the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation complement one another, for instance, how John describes the work of Islam and France in his chapters 9 and 11 respectively, and thus, one might expect to find these powers in the book of Daniel as well, and in a similar time frame. Witcombe also provides a look at how a third Islamic Jihad can fulfill the prophecy of Revelation’s third woe. If you want to examine a compelling, biblical view regarding the future of the State of Israel, take a look at this book. It provides a reasonable perspective regarding the future outcome of the current Mideast crisis.”


Makes a lot of sense

By Ken LeBrun on November 14, 2013

“This is the first book I’ve read on the Middle East situation that really makes a lot of sense. From the standpoint of Bible prophecy, this is sound scholarship. It does suggest possible scenarios within the framework of Scripture, but there is no twisting of Bible passages like you see in so many other prophecy books. The author lets the text have its natural meaning. I recommend it to anyone interested in what prophecy has to say about what is soon to happen in the Middle East.”


Must-know information, compellingly presented

Jerusalem Caliphate and the Third Jihad, by John C. Witcombe, demystifies the seven-trumpets of Revelation and the prophecies of Daniel 11 in an easy-to-read presentation that also includes appendices with details that will satisfy those seeking deeper understanding. Witcombe's study reveals the Holy Bible's treatment of Islam that theologians have obscured by decades of spiritualization of these challenging prophecies so relevant to us now. It would indeed be a baffling omission if the Holy Bible, full of prophecies already fulfilled regarding the history of civilization and religions, had completely ignored such a monumental development as the rise and profound influence of Islam on world history--past, current, and future. In Jerusalem Caliphate and the Third Jihad, readers will find that the Holy Bible clearly and with amazing accuracy predicted Islam's rise and significant role in geopolitics and religion, including events leading up to the Second Coming of Jesus. Most importantly, Witcombe offers the reader hope and practical advice on preparing for and surviving the final events of world history that will soon unfold. No one can afford to ignore this book!”
