What does the worlds largest natural gas company, a tiny Jewish nation in the Middle East, and an ancient Bible prophecy all have in common? Were not quite sure yet, but recent headlines indicate theres something awry off Israels coast.
...Russia will lead a coalition of nations into the mountains of Israel for the purposes of spoil and plunder(Ezekiel 38:12 NASV). God draws the invaders into Israel, but He uses the wealth of Israel to do it.
This leaves us with a very important question: What does Israel have that Russia wants? God only knows what this future plunder will be, but there are many plunder-worthy things Israel has that Russia would like to own.
First, Israel is a strategic gem in the Middle East. Situated along the Suez Canal and the Red Sea, Israel has access to two very important waterways. Throughout history, anyone controlling the tiny strip of land, formerly known as the Levant, controlled the region. Israeli Ports such as Haifa and Eilat would instantly give Russia access to the worlds most important oil-rich waterways.
Secondly, Israel is of inestimable worth politically. Sacred to three of the worlds most influential religions, Israel has been the coveted prize of countless zealots, armies, and empires. Securing Jerusalem for Islam would give Russia endless clout in the Muslim world. Russias Iranian pals would shower endless praise on the great Slavic conquerors.
He speaks the truth.
Here's what your scripture actually says...
"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."
New American Standard Bible
No mention of Russia there.
Neither is there any mention of Russia in any other verses.
You know the baby Jesus doesn't like it when you lie. No wonder he turned to drink.
