Preparing To Take Plunder and Booty From Israel

Views 413

Ezekiel 38:12 to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land. 13 Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, 'Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?""

The Old Testament speaks a lot about destroying the Israelites. When they were obedient to God then God protected them and they won wars, and when they were disobedient to God He handed them over to their enemies.

Israel is God's chosen people therefore many despise and HATE Israel. The bible tells us in Psalm 83:4 They say, “Come, let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be remembered no more!”

They have been wanting to destroy Israel since the Old Testament. So what we are witnessing today is nothing new but of old. So, why do they want to wipe Israel out? Where does all this hate come from that began in the Old Testament to the news occurring today? Is it about the land? Is it about a god? Is it about power? What is this all about?

Erodogan has made many claims to "wipe out Jews" among many others but Erodogan has a mission to complete.

"He said Israel must stand up “to the hostility and anti-Semitism of Erdogan. It’s odd for a country such as Turkey, that is massacring the Kurds and occupying northern Cyprus, to be accepted as a legitimate nation by the West.” source

Erodogan (Turkey) is connecting with other countries such as Russia, Syria and Iran to make an alliance with them. Turkey, Russia and Iran are connected to the Gog and Magog War. Now we have two scriptures unfolding right before our very eyes.

Russia and Turkey's relationship is becoming stronger and are now "building the “Turkstream" pipeline to transport Russian gas to Turkey"

Some of you may know about Leviathan that was discovered offshore in the Mediterranean Sea that caused Israel to have one of the largest gas supplies. Israel also has one of the largest oil supplies as well. One of Russia's main income is selling oil and natural gas.

Russia has an abundance of oil, natural gas and precious metals, which make up a major share of Russia's exports....
...Russia is considered an "energy superpower".[33][34] It has the world's largest proven natural gas reserves and the largest exporter of natural gas. It is also the second-largest exporter of petroleum. source

The hate towards Israel is rising and is so apparent that Erodogan makes claims towards Israel by "calling Israel a "terrorist state and occupier," and Netanyahu a "terrorist".

Netanyahu replies back to Erodogan by stating:

"I am not used to receiving lectures about morality from the leader who bombs Kurdish villagers in his native Turkey, who jails journalists, who helps Iran go around international sanctions, and who helps terrorists, including in Gaza, kill innocent people. That is not the man who is going to lecture us." source

Ezekiel 38:10 ESV “Thus says the Lord God: On that day, thoughts will come into your mind, and you will devise an evil scheme 11 and say, ‘I will go up against the land of unwalled villages. I will fall upon the quiet people who dwell securely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having no bars or gates,’ 12 to seize spoil and carry off plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places that are now inhabited, and the people who were gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell at the center of the earth

Due to the oil and gas that God provided Israel, this is causing an upheaval in many nations around Israel. Israel is benefiting from the gas and signed a "$15 Billion Export Deal With Egypt". This is one of the reasons why so many hate Israel. God is blessing Israel in many ways because Israel belongs to God. Who do they really hate Israel or God?

The major nations that will come against Israel are in Syria and are coming together in common interests. What is that common interest.

An Israeli gas platform is seen in the Mediterranean Sea, August 1, 2014"Delek, the Israeli oil and natural gas explorations group owned by the billionaire Yitzhak Tshuva, on Monday announced two deals to sell gas to the private Egyptian company Dolphinus Holdings..... Egypt has gas reserves of its own but also has very heavy demand for natural gas, for domestic use - and for export as liquefied natural gas. The multinationals operating in Egypt envision buying Israeli gas, liquefying it in Egyptian facilities and exporting the LNG to Europe." source

That common interest is to take Israel's wealth, but little do they know this belongs to God.

Another deal was signed by "Cyprus, Greece and Italy" This gas pipeline deal that Israel signed will reduce the EU dependency upon Russia. Are you beginning to see why they hate Israel?

To sum this up what we see is Turkey, Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas (who are among those financed by Iran), etc. want Israel gone. The hatred is no longer hidden. We also see the gas discoveries in Israel are a threat to Russia and their economy.

Isaiah 17:1 says Damascus will be utterly destroyed and will no longer be a city.

The majority in Syria are Israel's enemy and at some point they will not be able to resist the need to attack Israel and take her possessions.

What we have is:
1. Israel has and is gaining much wealth
2. Russia, Iran, and Turkey are uniting

They have found a Missile Base from a Satellite image in Syria.

Israeli satellite images reveal: Iran builds military base near Damascus"The last week has brought more reports about Iran’s establishment in Syria – the deployment of Shiite militias, the presence of military experts, soldiers from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, as well as plans to build bases and weapons factories. First The New York Times published a detailed map showing the Iranian reinforcement, now Fox News reports that the new base near Damascus includes big hangars, that could house missiles capable of hitting anywhere in Israel." source

Damascus is the point of military bases. Damascus also has a prophetic future appointment. They are currently bombing in Damascus and what will it take to make it a heap of ruins? Only God knows that but it does say: Isaiah 17 (TLB) 17 This is God’s message to Damascus, capital of Syria: Look, Damascus is gone! It is no longer a city—it has become a heap of ruins!

Back to the questions from up above?
So, why do they want to wipe Israel out? To wipe out God's agreement so Satan can become god.

Where does all this hate come from that began in the Old Testament to the news occurring today? Satan hated God from the beginning and wants to destroy God's people.

Is it about the land? Yes, Israel is Blessed by God.

Is it about a god? Yes, they do not want to worship the only True Living Lord God.

Is it about power? Yes, Satan wants to rule but Jesus has already won the victory.

What is this all about? It is about Jesus! Are you ready to meet Christ Jesus?
