Natural Gas Find Off the Coast of Israel, November 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on November 5, 2019 by paulthepoke

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.

to capture spoil and to seize plunder… Here are the intentions of Gog, the leader of Magog (Russia). The Russians, along with the Turks and Iranians are planning to invade and attempt to steal natural resources from Israel. This is what Ezekiel is saying from roughly 2,600 years ago.

November 2019: The British and Greek energy company Energean has made a significant oil and natural gas find off of the coast of Israel. 25 billion cubic meters (bcm) of natural gas and 34 million barrels of light oil has been confirmed.

These amounts will be in addition to the initial discoveries of 68 bcm of natural gas and 33 million barrels of light oil.

“This is an excellent result from the Karish North appraisal sidetrack, confirming in place volumes in the top half of pre-drill estimates and increasing our recoverable volumes in Israel by 0.9 Tcf (25 BCM) of gas plus 34 million barrels of light oil or condensate. Today’s news delivers upon another commitment that we had made to our shareholders and the successful results allow us to continue our gas marketing efforts in the region with a goal to fully utilize the capacity of our 8 BCMA FPSO. Our focus now remains on closing the Edison E&P acquisition, in parallel with progressing Karish development. ” -Mathios Rigas, Chief Executive, Energean

These finds are in addition to two tremendous areas of natural gas. The Leviathan oil and gas basin in the Mediterranean Sea is believed to hold 1.7 billion barrels of oil. The basin also holds an estimated 122 trillion cubic feet of natural gas (Noble Energy, U.S. Geological Survey). A second oil and natural gas basin is the Tamar. It is estimated to hold 7.9 trillion cubic feet of natural gas (Noble Energy).

Israel is looking to export their natural resources to western Europe. These exports will cut into the bottom lines of Russia and Turkey. More bait for a future invasion of Israel. At some point in the future, Russia and its allies will invade Israel for their “great spoil”. They have economic motivation and reason to invade.

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?’

See the video link below for additional analysis and geography.

Oil and natural gas will be serious bait for the Russian invasion of Israel. At some point in the future, Russia and its allies will invade Israel for their “great spoil”.

Full disclosure, the author of this article is a shareholder in Zion Oil & Gas (ZN); listed on NASDAQ Exchange.

February 14, 2018: Zion Oil & Gas has discovered oil and natural gas in the Megiddo-Jezreel Valley.

“I am ecstatic to see clear evidence of hydrocarbons (oil and gas) in the deeper portion of our Megiddo-Jezreel #1 well, a project that we have been working on for years. However, at this time we cannot comment on the commerciality or ability to successfully produce the well. We ask that our shareholders continue to pray for safe and successful drilling, logging, and testing operations, and for God’s wisdom for management as we make key decisions in the following days and weeks. Please be patient. We will provide further updates after we have adequate time to properly evaluate the logs and finalize our well testing program following the recent events.” Zion’s CEO, Victor G. Carrillo

This is the location John discusses at the outset of the bowl judgments in Revelation.

Revelation 16:16 And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

 

February 19, 2018: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel announces a $15 billion deal to export natural gas to Egypt. See the link below for a video statement from the Prime Minister.

Noble Energy and Delek Drilling are the benefactors of the deal. They will be selling natural gas to Dolphinus Holdings of Egypt. The natural gas is coming from the Leviathan and Tamar natural gas fields off the coast of Israel in the Mediterranean Sea. 64 billion cubic meters of natural gas are expected to be exported over 10 years.

Egypt has the ability to liquefy the natural gas and transport around the world. Those liquefication plants are owned by Royal Dutch Shell. Egypt announced the deal to their public as a nameless partner.

Security of pipelines and distribution will be a factor. Historically, ISIS has vandalized pipelines in the region of the Sinai Desert.

Trend Update: Russia Issues Red Line, June 2017

Posted in Euphrates River, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on June 20, 2017 by paulthepoke

Genesis 2:14 The name of the third river is Tigris; it flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.

Humanity began in the Garden of Eden and one of the four rivers mentioned was the Euphrates. Thousands of years later, the Euphrates River is still relevant. What once was a garden is now a desolate battlefield.

June 19, 2017: The backlash from the downing of Syrian SU 22 fighter jet has begun. Russia has literally drawn a line in the sand in the Middle East. The line is the Euphrates River.

“Any aircraft, including planes and drones belonging to the international coalition operating west of the Euphrates River, will be tracked by Russian anti-aircraft forces in the sky and on the ground and treated as targets.” Russian Defense Ministry

Russia has effectively declared a no fly zone from the Euphrates River west to the Mediterranean Sea.

Russia has also suspended communication with United States over the downing of their Russian made plane in Syria.

Russia disputes the United States attempted contact before shooting down the Syrian SU 22 fighter jet. The United States has indicated they attempted to contact the Russians but they did not answer the phone.

The location of the Syrian pilot is unknown. He is reported to have ejected over ISIS held territory.

The Syrian Army has told the United States there will be “dangerous repercussions” for their actions.

“As for what is happening ‘on the ground’ in Syria, we proceed from the assumption that it is necessary to fully respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity in Syria. Therefore, any actions ‘on the ground,’ and there are many participants there, including those who carry out military operations, should be coordinated with Damascus.” Sergei Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister

Something is going to give.

“The era of dogfighting is largely over. After the totally lopsided kill-to-loss ratio attained by the US Air Force and US Navy during the First Gulf War (in 1991), it is a very rare thing for regimes under attack by the US and its allies to send fighters up in defense — since they know how it will end.” Justin Bronk of the Royal United Services Institute.
