It is with great blessing that we feature “Zealous
Over Zion”, by Ted Pearce. Ted has been writing and recording for
several years, concentrating on various music genres. However, he has
definitely found his niche in Messianic Music. His obvious vast musical
talents are very evident in his latest musical offerings. The rich,
full-bodied arrangements will capture your soul, yearning for the
message in each song. I must say that Ted will probably reach believers
all over the world, bringing one and all closer to the Lord. This
anointed display of Ted’s love of the Lord is sure to be a favorite of
those who hear it. His unique style has an appeal that will fancy people
of all ages.
The first song sample is taken from the release’s
title song, “Zealous Over Zion”, from Zechariah 8:2-8.
The Lord dwells in Jerusalem. This song will immediately command your
very soul to the message that the Lord has His hand upon Israel, as His
everlasting covenant burns brightly. This is a great song, and I know
that you will love it as well.
The second song sampled is, “Rejoice”.
Inspired by Zechariah 9:9-12, Ted weaves a skillful, beautiful ballad
that is sure to be the favorite of many. This song flows like a pristine
brook of music, causing one to put everything down and worship the Lord
for His awesomeness!
My third song pick is entitled, “Refuge and
Strength”. Scripture based, this faith-building song will leave
you lifting your hands in the joy of the Lord! Ted’s fluent, gentle
voice commands the heartfelt message that is so well delivered.
A “musician’s musician” is how I can sum up Ted
Pearce’s Godly contribution to the excellence in Messianic music! I
have been a musician for many years, and found this CD to be one of the
most anointed, skillfully performed releases to come along in years.

Israel Rally" will be an integral part of the Christian
Coalition¹s annual "Road to Victory Conference," co-sponsored

The purpose of this special event is twofold: 1) to gather people of
faith from around the world to pray for American, Israeli and other
world leaders at this crucial hour in our world history, and 2) to
declare en masse our Christian Solidarity with Israel on the massive

"The Lord says in Genesis 12:3, referring to Israel, 'I will bless
those that bless you and I will curse those that curse you,'" says
Roberta Combs, President of the Christian Coalition. "Blessing
Israel and standing by the Jewish community in their time of crisis is
something that resonates deep in the hearts of many Christians in
America, who feel a strong bond with Israel, God's covenant people of
"I remember as a young girl, every night our family would pray for
the protection of Israel, and that compassion has stayed with me
since," Combs continues. "I was pleased to hear about Ted¹s
musical calling as his music is a great method to cross over
denominational lines to unify people of faith to show their love and
support for Israel."
"This is the most significant partnership in our five-year
history," comments Yochanan Ben Yehuda, president of Galilee of the
Nations Records. "Not only is the Christian Coalition featuring Ted
Pearce and Zealous Over Zion at their "Christian Solidarity with
Israel Rally," but Ted will also pre-release the album Zealous Over
Zion by performing at the "Road to Victory Conference," to be
held at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. on October
11 and 12. We are honored to be a partner with the Christian Coalition
in this important endeavor, which is so close to our hearts as
Pearce, once an atheist, came to faith as a result of studying the Bible
in order to disprove Christianity. Although not of Jewish decent,
Pearce's heart for the Jewish people and their musical heritage shines
through in Zealous Over Zion. The album includes thirteen songs, three
of which are performed in Hebrew.
"Isaiah 62:1 says, For Zion¹s sake I will not keep silent, for
Jerusalem¹s sake I will not remain quiet,¹" says Pearce.
"God has given me a calling to serve Israel, and I am blessed on my
first album to partner with the Christian Coalition, which has been
given this same calling."
Zealous Over Zion officially releases on October 22, 2002 on Galilee of
the Nations Records and will be distributed worldwide through Provident
or visit their website at www.cc.org.
