I Thessalonians 5:1-11 (NASB)
The day ‘Day of the Lord’ will come just as a thief in the night, while they are saying peace and safety.
The Golan Heights, controlled by Israel since 1967, will be recognized as Israel’s land by our government-maybe this year. Amazing.
There is the possibility of huge amounts of oil being found in the Golan Heights by Israel. Ten times the amount usually found in other oil/gas fields.
Also: Large volumes of natural gas have been found in the Mediterranean Sea by Israel. Contracts have already been signed by Egypt, Jordan, Greece, and Italy.
For a people who did not exist as a nation a little over seventy years ago this is beyond amazing. They have made contributions of medical techniques and technology. Their agriculture and military advancements have been nothing short of miraculous.
With the advancements in oil and gas, agriculture, and technology, comes the realization that this makes Israel a target for countries who are searching for those things to benefit their own hurting economies.
The Bible says, “When they say, Peace and safety”. (I Thess 5:3)
