Last month Israel had a freak sandstorm of Biblical proportions, the worst since the state of Israel began. It lasted four days and ended just before Rosh Hashana on Sept 13th 2015, the Jewish New Year. Normally sandstorms come from the south, but this one blew in from Syria and covered the land.
In Bible prophecy a vast coalition will advance against Israel from that direction, “like a cloud that covers the land.” Ezekial 38
"You will advance against my people Israel like a cloud that covers the land. In days to come, Gog, I will bring you against my land,
so that the nations may know me when I am proved holy through you before their eyes." Ezekial 38:16
This week I’ve been wondering why China is getting involved in the Syrian conflict, and why it’s beginning to look like World War 3.
Watching the news on TV didn’t enlighten me, but I didn’t expect the media to cover it from the angle I’m looking at – the Bible prophecy in Ezekial 38 and 39. The prophet Ezekial wrote about a war in the latter days, where God puts a hook in the jaws of the prince of Rosh (Russia) to drag him and his allies into a conflict on the mountains of Israel.
With that in mind, I’ve been keeping an eye on the conflict to see if there’s something that would cause Putin to attack Israel. After I prayed about it, news was announced of a major oil discovery this week – on the mountains of Israel, the Golan Heights. This is a game changer. That land is under dispute with Syria. After this oil find, you can bet Syria is going to want the Golan Heights back. And Russia is Syria’s ally. Here might be the hook in the jaws of Gog. If Russia invades Israel, you’d better start reading the Bible for your news.
Afek Oil and Gas, an Israeli subsidiary of the U.S. company Genie Energy, confirmed the find in an interview with Israel’s Channel 2 TV. They said the strata was 10 times as much as the normal strata so they’re talking about we are talking about significant quantities. They started drilling in December 2014.
Notable investors and shareholders of Genie Energy are Howard Jonas, former US Vice President Dick Cheney, Michael Steinhardt, Jacob Rothschild, and Rupert Murdoch.
It’s an interesting name, Genie Energy – and the shareholders are all powerful men. And power corrupts. Their corporate logo is an oil lamp. A Genie (or Jinn) is a spirit of Arabian folklore, as depicted traditionally imprisoned within a bottle or oil lamp. I wonder what’s going to happen when they let this Genie loose.
China has reportedly sent warships to the coast of Syria to “observe” the actions of US and Russian ships. China slammed Obama for failing to prove that the chemical weapons attack was the work of the Syrian government, charging that Washington’s “geopolitical interests” in the region were behind the military build-up. The editorial also complained of the total lack of media coverage in America concerning reports that Syrian rebels admitted responsibility for last month’s chemical weapons attack, and accused the White House of “ignoring logic as it beats war drums.” Source: http://www.infowars.com/report-china-sends-warships-to-coast-of-syria/
Now it becomes clearer why Washington wants to remove Assad, and why Putin wants to keep Assad. Washington doesn’t even care what Islamic horror Assad would get replaced with. Look at what happened to Libya after they removed Gadhaffi. Before it had the highest standard of living in Africa. Now it’s a failed state.

The Golan Heights
In the Bible this territory was given to the tribe of Joseph through his son Manasseh. It’s disputed territory because it’s in the Golan Heights, which Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Six Day War.
In Jacob’s blessing to Joseph in Genesis 49:22 he speaks of Joseph getting “blessings of the deep that lies beneath.”
The blessing from the deep is confirmed in Moses blessing, when he gave the tribes their territory: “And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the LORD be his land, with the precious things of heaven, with the dew, and the deep lying beneath.“
This blessing is going to be a double-edged sword that will probably lead to war. Because when Jacob gave Joseph his blessing, we read on the next line, Genesis 49:23: “The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him.” The bow is associated with Ishmael, the father of the Arabs and the ancestor of Mohammed (Genesis 21:20). And we know the Arabs hate Israel.
Here you can see the sandstorm from 8th-12th Sept 2015 that covered the land like a cloud.
Is it a warning sign?
