September 22, 2020: Today, Israel has become a member of the East Mediterranean Gas Forum (EMGF). The virtual conference was hosted in Cairo, Egypt. Current members include Egypt, Jordan, Greece, Cyprus, Italy and the Palestinian Authority. The goal of the group is to supply Europe with 10% of its natural gas needs.

Of note, France wants to be a member of the forum. The European Union and the United States are “observers”.

“…contribute to advancing regional stability and prosperity, creating an environment of trust, prosperity, stability and neighborly relations through regional energy cooperation…” -EMGF

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.

Israel discovered natural gas off their coast in the Mediterranean in October 2015. There is enough gas for Israel to be energy independent and a significant exporter to western Europe. These gas fields are set to be ready for production in 2021.

Ezekiel 38:12 …to seize spoil and carry off plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places that are now inhabited, and the people who were gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell at the center of the earth.

Currently, Russia is the largest exporter of natural gas to Europe.

These are the intentions of Gog, the leader of Magog (Russia). The Russians, along with the Turks and Iranians are planning to invade. Their motivation is economic. They want to steal natural resources from Israel.

Turkey has not been included the East Mediterranean Gas Forum. Of course the Turks will join forces with the Russians. These are the countries who stand to lose out economically because of the EMGF.

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?’

Historically, per Strong’s Concordance and NET Bible, Raamah settled in the southwest of the Arabian Peninsula. Sheba settled in the southern Arabian Peninsula. Dedan settled in the northern Arabian Peninsula. Dedan was an ancient capital of Saudi Arabia. It is modern day Al Ula in northwest Saudi Arabia. These areas make up what is modern day Saudi Arabia.

In light of recent Middle East peace developments and Biblical prophecy, don’t be surprised if Saudi Arabia has an agreement for normalized relations with Israel.

Today, Israel wishes Saudi Arabia congratulations on their 90th national year as a country. Israel expresses a future “with goodness and blessing in light of security, safety and prosperity, with our wishes for an atmosphere of peace, cooperation and good neighborliness.”

According to Ezekiel’s prophecy, it would appear modern day Saudi Arabia along with at least Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Jordan will protest the potential Russian invasion. Prophecy seems to indicate there will be more countries in this coalition with Israel.

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

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”.

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.

Offshore Energy Today

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.”

Trend Update: Russia (Magog)/Israel, Ezekiel 38-39, October 14, 2015

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 are going to invade to steal natural resources from Israel.

“capture spoil” or shalal in the Hebrew. Per Strong’s Concordance, the word means: draw out, plunder, or take spoil.

“seize” or bazaz in the Hebrew. Per Strong’s, the word means: to spoil, plunder, prey upon, seize, or despoil.

Israel possesses “plunder” or baz in the Hebrew. This is the noun form of the verb above.

MEDITERRANEAN SEA, ISRAEL - FEBRUARY 2013:  In this handout image provided by Albatross, The Tamar drilling natural gas production platform is seen some 25 kilometers West of the Ashkelon shore in February 2013 in Israel. The offshore Tamar drilling site which was originally dispatched from a shipyard in Texas at the end of last year is due to start producing natural gas next week. Over the past few years Israel has suffered from a shortage in natural gas, but with the new platform that weighs 34,000 tons and will be mainly operated by Israelis, the US company Nobel Energy which owns a 36% stake in Tamar, hopes to change Israel's energy situation as well as the economy as a whole.

Does the nation of Israel have anything worth taking?

News has emerged in early October 2015. Israel has discovered a vast oil deposit in the Golan Heights region north of the Sea of Galilee. http://www.nasdaq.com/article/major-shale-find-could-guarantee-israels-oil-supply-for-years-cm528693

The coast of Israel is home 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).

The Dead Sea area provides magnesium, bromides, phosphates, potassium, calcium and chlorides of sodium. These minerals are important for the production of fertilizers and explosives. http://www.thetruthaboutisrael.uk/natural-resources/

Israel is known as a world leader for diamond cutting and polishing.

Technology development is a cornerstone of the Israeli economy. It has been coined the Silicon Wadi.

Israel is one of the world’s leading greenhouse food-exporting countries. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_Israel

…to turn your hand against the waste places which are now inhabited… This is an accurate description of the land of Israel prior to their return to the land in the early 20th century. The land was known as chorbah in the Hebrew. Per Strong’s it means: a place laid waste, ruin, waste, desolation, or a desert.

… and against the people who are gathered from the nations… From the Balfour Declaration in 1917, the rebirth of a nation in 1948, to reclaiming Jerusalem as its capital in 1967, Jews have been returning to their land to the present day.

… who have acquired cattle and goods… Cows from Israel are noted to be the most productive in the world when it comes to milk. Cows are constantly monitored and under intense observation. Data is taken intently from a variety of perspectives.

… who live at the center of the world. Notice God’s view of the nation Israel. This is where His people live. The geography of the nation is “the center of the world”.

As promised to the regions and tribes of Zebulun and Issachar, Deuteronomy 33:19b…For they will draw out the abundance of the seas, and the hidden treasures of the sand.
