There are a number of reasons for this attack both spiritual and material. But Russia really has little use for holy wars, unlike its allies. Russia is in it for one reason and one reason only--the money.
You may wonder what gain a tiny country such as Israel could possibly provide for such a monstrous country like Russia? Very little until recently! Since 1947, about 410 oil wells have been dug with little result. I think the highest yield from one of the wells was around 800 barrels a day. Not a success story by any means. They tried offshore drilling and drilled around the Dead Sea, but still encountered poor results. Recent wells drilled in 1994, 1995 include Givot Olam’s Meged-2 well which recovered oil from the Mohilla Fm in L-244 and the David-1 well to the southwest of Rosh Ha’Ayin, reached T.D. at 6,000m. The well had a strong gas show at the Base Permian Saad Fm but was not tested due to mechanical problems.
Test after test, drilling after drilling continued with little to no success. But in August of 1997 oil was discovered and it was a major mother load. You probably seen it on the news and didn’t pay much attention to it because oil is discovered in the Middle East all the time. But this is no ordinary oil discovery. Let me put it in perspective. After hearing this news I decided to look on the internet to see if there were any stories out there that could provide a little more insight into this discovery. Sure enough there was! In fact, it was from the company that discovered it. It was an ad trying to find venture capitalist that might be interested in investing in this project. Here is the ad as I read it.
“Givot Olam is looking for Joint Venture Partners. Based on a comprehensive geological review, we have developed a new understanding of the petroleum geology of Israel. This not only explains why many previous oil exploration efforts in Israel have failed, but also predicts where oil can be found.
We have drilled an initial well in our License area onshore Central Israel which has discovered good quality 40° API oil and confirmed our key geological predictions. We are now planning to drill a second well to test the geological structure further which is estimated to contain 1 BILLION BARRELS OF OIL AND 4 TCF* OF GAS.” (http://www.givot.co.il)
This story was confirmed by CNN Interactive on their website. This is only the tip of the iceberg. I will predict that you will see a lot more of these natural resources discovered in the very near future coming out of the land of Israel.
It seems very strange that for 50 years, the best engineers that money could buy were unable to find an oil reserve of this magnitude. But I believe that God has baffled the scientists these many years to preserve Israel’s untold riches (not only oil) for the last days. It will be for this reason that Russia will attack the Holy Land, to take of the abundant bounty that presumably will be an easy prey (Ezekiel 38:8-13).
