Prophecy being fulfilled: very interesting


ISRAEL MAKES ENORMOUS AND "HISTORIC" DISCOVERY OF NATURAL GAS OFF HAIFA -- Ezekiel 38-39 has another precondition that has to happen before the "War of Gog and Magog" can begin -- Israel must be notably prosperous. In my first non-fiction book, Epicenter, I noted that Israel is already far more prosperous than her immediate neighbors, the Palestinians, the Egyptians, the Jordanians, the Syrians and the Lebanese. But I speculated that it was possible that the Israel will get far more prosperous to fully satisfy this prophetic precondition. I further noted that based on a series of Bible prophecies, Israel will make major discoveries of petroleum in "the last days" (something that was a fictional part of The Last Jihad series, as well). Consider, then, this remarkable story on today's Jerusalem Post website: "Three massive gas reservoirs have been discovered 80 kilometers off the Haifa coast, at the Tamar prospect, Noble Energy Inc. announced on Sunday….Speaking on Army Radio Sunday morning, an exhilarated Yitzhak Tshuva, owner of the Delek Group Ltd, one of the owners of the well, called the discovery 'one of the biggest in the world,' promising that the find would present a historic land mark in the economic independence of Israel. "I have no doubt that this is a holiday for the State of Israel. We will no longer be dependent [on foreign sources] for our gas, and will even export. We are dealing with inconceivably huge quantities; Israel now has a solution for the future generations,' Tshuva added. An ecstatic Infrastructures Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer said before the weekly cabinet meeting that the discovery was a 'historic' one and could 'change the face of Israeli industry.'….Following the announcement of the discover, shares of Delek Drilling jumped up 80%, while shares of Isramco Negev 2 skyrocketed by an unprecedented 120 percent. The rest of the Tel Aviv stock market also saw huge gains, with the TA-Index 100 climbing nearly 4 percent." It's too soon to draw any conclusions, but I do think this is a story worth watching closely.

Hey Purple Reign, I have been reading Joel Rosenberg also. I read Epicenter a few month's ago, and am currently reading Dead Heat. His fiction has been very prophetic, and he really dug into scripture in Epicenter. I too feel Biblical prophesy being fulfilled. In fact, since reading epicenter, I've been watching, almost expecting some kind of oil discovery in Israel. And now here is the discovery. Everyone should make certain of their eternal destination, if they haven't already. God bless you brother.
