Israel, Greece, and Cyprus Participate in Gas Summit, March 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 19, 2019 by paulthepoke

1 Thessalonians 1:1 Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace.

Located in the shadows of Mount Olympus, Thessaloniki was a major hub of trade during the Roman Empire. The wealthy city minted its own coins. It was the chief port and capital of Roman Macedonia. Thessaloniki was located on the Via Egnatia, the major road that connected the Roman Empire to the east.

Another large natural gas deposit has been discovered in the eastern Mediterranean Sea near Cyprus.

United States Ambassador to Greece Geoffrey Pyatt discussed the significance of the natural gas discovery. Here is a paragraph from the story noted in a Greek newspaper in the link below .

He welcomed Greece’s strengthened role in the Balkans, noting that the Prespes Accord is “the most obvious expression” of this development, which will restore Thessaloniki’s historic role as a cosmopolitan crossroad in the Balkans.

The following leaders are expected to attend the meeting on March 20, 2019: United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades.

Israel, Greece, and Cyprus are expected to sign and reach a deal to build a natural gas pipeline from the eastern Mediterranean into Europe.

Prime Minister Netanyahu stated, “(This) will bring vast revenue to the state coffers.”

Russia and Turkey are watching the action closely. The EastMed Pipeline is estimated to cost $8 billion and will deliver up to 12 billion cubic meters of gas annually to Europe. The EastMed will be the deepest under sea pipeline. The line is estimated to be 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers) long. Egypt is rumored to want in on the action to export their natural gas to Europe.

Greece and Israel are increasing military and economic ties. Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan has called Greece and Cyprus actions “reckless”.

This is direct competition with Russia’s Turk Stream pipeline. This will cut into Russia’s and Turkey’s bottom line. Turkey’s economy has recently fallen into recession.

Ezekiel 38:12 to capture spoil and to seize plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places which are now inhabited, and against the people who are gathered from the nations, who have acquired cattle and goods, who live at the center of the world.

These are the intentions of Gog, the leader of Magog (Russia). The Russians along with Turkey, Iran, and others are going to invade to steal natural resources from Israel.

The pieces of the puzzle keep falling into place…

Trend Update: Israel’s Natural Gas Riches, January 2018

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 30, 2018 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:13 Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all its leaders will say to you, ‘Have you come to seize spoil? Have you assembled your hosts to carry off plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to seize great spoil?’

This is the bait for the Russian invasion of Israel. At some point in the future, Russia and its allies will invade Israel for their “great spoil”.

For details linking modern day Russia to ancient Magog. See the link below.

January 30, 2018: The Israeli government has an anti-monopoly policy in place for protection. As part of this policy, the American company Noble Energy will sell $800,000,000 worth of shares and cash to be in compliance. The money will go to Tamar Petroleum Ltd. Noble’s holdings is now 25%.

At this time, the Tamar field is the only operational natural gas field. But things will be changing…

The development of the Leviathan natural gas field is in process. The Leviathan is Israel’s largest gas field. It is estimated to contain 18.9 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, plus 34.1 million barrels of condensate.

Noble Energy is looking to invest $4 billion (4,000,000,000) into the Leviathan project. The Leviathan is looking to be online by 2019.

So far, Noble has pocketed up to $1.25 billion. Almost $1 billion has been in cash.

Europe and Israel have agreed to the construction of a pipeline linking the Leviathan gas field to Europe. The name of the project is EastMed. The European Union will spend 34.5 million euros for planning the pipeline. The project is tentatively scheduled to begin construction in 2021. It is expected to take four years to be completed and operational by 2025.

The pipeline will go from the Leviathan field to Cyprus to Greece then to Italy. From Italy, the natural gas will be distributed throughout Europe.

The following statement is an excerpt from the Globes article…

“The EU regards EastMed as a strategic project that will enhance the energy security of European countries by giving them access to a supply of gas through another pipeline besides Russia’s and the dwindling gas resources of Norway and the Netherlands.”

It would appear the balance of power is rapidly changing in the Middle East.

August 15, 2016: Russia acquired its first permanent air base in Syria. The Khmeimim Air Base is located near Latakia, Syria on the Mediterranean Sea. With this move, some believe the balance of power in the Mediterranean has shifted to Russia.

August 16, 2016: For the first time, Russia is launching air strikes from Iran. The Iranians have agreed to give Russia access to the Hamadan Air Base in western Iran. Russia is the first foreign country allowed access to the air base. This is being reported by news outlets around the world (The Guardian, RT, Reuters, Jerusalem Post, France 24, New York Times).

RT is reporting Cyprus has offered Russia use of its air base.

Moscow, August 16, 2016: A member of Russia’s upper house of parliament and a member of Russia’s Federation Council Defense and Security Committee indicated Turkey could allow Russia access to the Incirlik Air Base. This is the same air base that is home to United States and NATO air forces. The Incirlik Air Base is alleged to house at least 50 American nuclear weapons.

August 15, 2016: A report from the non-partisan Stimson Center to the US Congress was issued. Congress was briefed about the safety of the nuclear weapons at the Incirlik Air Base in Turkey. It was stated the weapons were at risk to being stolen by terrorists, the Turkey government, and/or hostile forces.
