Greek company Energean Oil & Gas PLC reveals a newfound significant amount of natural gas off Israeli shorelines in the Mediterranean; This discovery was located at the Karish gas field in the southeastern region of the Mediterranean.
In a recent discovery, the Karish natural gas field off of the coast of Israel has been found to contain far more natural gas than previously known. Originally, it was estimated that 2.4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas existed between the Karish and Tanin gas fields. Now, the Greek gas production company Energean Oil & Gas PLC estimates an additional 0.9 trillion cubic feet after their recent appraisal of the field in the southeastern region of the Mediterranean Sea.
In addition to the natural gas findings during the appraisal, Energean also found what they estimate to be 34 million barrels of light oil, which can be converted into fuel. As a nation that has historically been on the hunt for natural resources, but has been on the rise economically in recent years, Israel now believes this storehouse in the Mediterranean will allow them to be independent when it comes to energy, and perhaps begin exporting gas.
Who Else is Aware of This?
As Israel continues to rise on the world platform, this small nation, similar in size to the state of New Jersey, is catching the attention of many-especially their distant neighbors to the north. The economies of both Russia & Turkey are being decimated.
Russia, in particular, in the words of Pastor Jack Hibbs, is, “Looking for somewhere to stick their straw.”
Russia is desperate for oil, which is shown in their immediate presence in Venezuela following Venezuela’s economic collapse, and that desperation is only going to grow.
According to the Bible, a day is coming, and is likely not far off, when the LORD will draw Russia down into Israel, accompanied by Iran, Turkey, and countries from northeastern Africa. According to the prophet Ezekiel, their invasion will be economic in nature. For centuries of world history, biblical scholars have wondered what the scene of this prophecy would even look like. For you and me, it’s now a reality.
I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you. “Prepare yourself and be ready, you and all your companies that are gathered about you; and be a guard for them. After many days you will be visited. In the latter years you will come into the land of those brought back from the sword and gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them dwell safely. You will ascend, coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you.”
Thus says the Lord God: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’— to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land. Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?’ ” ’
“Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “On that day when My people Israel dwell safely, will you not know it? Then you will come from your place out of the far north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great company and a mighty army. You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me, when I am hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes.” Thus says the Lord God: “Are you he of whom I have spoken in former days by My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied for years in those days that I would bring you against them?
