What part the flotilla crisis could eventually play in prophecy
According to a Free Gaza Movement spokesperson, the Irish aid ship, the Rachel Corrie, was about 110 miles away from Gaza. Israeli officials have vowed, although they seek no confrontation, they would not allow the ship to break the blockade. The ship is expected to reach the blockade Saturday morning.
Irish Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mairead Corrigan, who was on the ship with other activists, said they would not resist the blockade. "We will sit down," she told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from the ship. "They will probably arrest us ... But there will be no resistance (AP)."
This flotilla crisis has opened up the true colors of Turkey who has in recent years aligned themselves with Iran and now has started an economic friendship with Syria. Turkey and Syria are better known as enemies but in these last days have come together and even more so after this crisis. Both Turkey and Syria are seen by most prophecy experts to play a part in the end time Battle of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38 & 39).
In other related news, Russia has pulled former Soviet nation Ukraine from the ranks of NATO membership. And don't look for this to be the last former Soviet nation to run back to Russia. This reunion is actually a page out of Bible prophecy. The Bible says, soon, Russia will come down on Israel with a host of Islamic nation and a number of surrounding former Soviet nations. This attack is said to be for the purpose of taking a spoil (Ezekiel 38:13). The fact that NATO cannot protect former Soviet nations (proven with Georgia) from a Russian attack and the rise of new Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovychas has lead to this departure.
As stated, the reason that Russia will invade Israel is purely out of greed. However, many might ask, what does Israel have to offer that Russia would be interested in? Frankly, not much until recently. Just today, reports are coming in that Israeli oil companies have discovered a natural gas find that could be the largest gas discovery globally in 2009.
March, when I was last in Israel, I said that Noble Energy planned to be here
for decades to come,” Noble Energy chairman and CEO Charles Davidson said
Thursday. “I am thrilled that today’s announcement substantiates the
potential of a new and significant energy basin in the eastern Mediterranean,
which, if successful, could position Israel as a potential energy exporter in
“I would like to congratulate the State of Israel on the discoveries of the last year and a half, which have the potential to strengthen the economy and security of Israel. Noble is honored to be working with our Israeli partners in this historic development.”
“The option for exporting natural gas has become much more realistic,” Delek Group CEO Asaf Bartfeld said Thursday. “We may be able to supply the European market and the Far East, where demand is highest. Though, of course, at this point, we are waiting to drill and to try and confirm the gas (Jpost.com).”
The article goes on to say that there is likely oil under the natural gas basin as well. If you are not aware, Russia is the world leader in natural gas deposits and very close to the top in oil production. If this natural gas and oil discovery turns out to be a monster find like they have projected, this would definitely peek Russia's interest. I wouldn't be shocked if Russia used this flotilla crisis as a rallying cry to align with the Islamic world in an overwhelming attack against Israel.
Of course, I may be getting ahead of myself at this point. The Bible clearly says that Israel will be at peace and living in safety in their own land when this attack takes place (Ezekiel 38: 8, 11, 12, 14). That's not the case at this point, but could be soon if peace is signed with the Antichrist. When I say with the Antichrist, it may be that every nation involved vows to the Antichrist that they will co-exist peacefully with Israel. It may not be a peace treaty among each nation but with the Antichrist only. In turn, his military alliance will guarantee Israel's security and maintain peace in the region with a multinational army.
Before this is all said and done, this flotilla crisis could play a pivotal role in gathering these nations together against Israel for God to finally destroy in miraculous fashion (Ezekiel 38 & 39).
Lastly, a humanitarian website has created a video that is claiming the media is fixated on the plight of tiny little Israel and the Arab world while tens of millions are dying in other countries of human rights abuses. Although this is tragic, this is exactly what the Bible said would happen in the last days. "And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people (Zechariah 12:3a)". The world and their leaders will be fixated on Israel. For those who are curios here is the video: Website highlights disproportionate media coverage of Israel
