Agree with you. To be clear the only reason a believer might need to be obsess a little is out of concern for the unsaved. Especially those close to you, since Gods timeline is not specific. Could be today!

Interesting stuff. I remember reading about the Leviathan find years ago but completely forgot about it.

First off, Israel does not have the natural resources itself generally speaking. But it does have the technology to make things happen. And suffice it to say that the upcoming midterms are likely to significantly impact the policy of the White House by the end of the year. The power dynamics in DC are fluid.

A lot to unravel there :lol:
With biblical worldview shades on, I always wonder what "the hook" will be that one day draws armies from three regions to converge on Israel. They seem so small and unimportant on a world map. Will it be their technologies, new oil and gas or something else? I realize we are not to predict when it will happen.

Trust me, I keep up. Locations of reserves are an exceptionally important part of my business life. It is the primary rrason that I find myself in some really remote locations around the planet.

Yes, there are natural gas reserves in the Eastern Med primarily off the coast of Cyprus is disputed waters with Turkey. This has actually led to a lack of exploration and production due to the geopolitical overtones that could likely lead to war. It is very similar to what you see in Guyana-Venezuela before the massive discoveries that continue to pop up down there in the Caribbean.

Can Israel potentially exploit these assets to have some energy self-reliance? Absolutely. But until this past week's commodities jumps based on the Ukrainian/Russian situation, it was not economically sustainable to be commercial. In other words, it is substantially cheaper to buy it some place else that to extract it themselves. I seriously doubt we maintain these incredible commodity prices for an extended period of time. The market will react to find solutions relatively quickly regardless of how long the Russian aggression lasts.

If you are looking for Biblical signs, I think most of your attention should be focused on Tel Aviv's tech sector. It is perhaps the hottest technology generator on the planet outside of the US, China & Taiwan. I suspect this is what the world will be wanting to seize in Revelation. Then again, I personally plan on being long gone by then.

Willflop, you make an excellent point. And I concur with your statement. However, one can also believe in a dual fulfillment of "this generation". There was precisely 40 years--or one biblical generation--between the Atonement of Christ at the time of the Passover in AD 30 till the coming of Titus against Jerusalem at Passover in AD 70. This first century generation of unbelieving Jews faced the wrath of God via the destruction of Jerusalem. Likewise, there can be a dual fulfillment at the end-time where the Jews do come to faith and repentance in Christ at the end of forty years of testing to become a nation of Messianic believers who enter the Millennial Kingdom. Actually, taking it a bit further, you could include the generation of unbelieving ancient Jews who wandered in the wilderness for forty years and never entered the Promised Land. The third time is the charm for Rom. 11 fulfillment.
