Ezekiel 38:13 “Have you come to capture spoil?”
One of these days soon the armies of Gog will come against Israel. This question will be asked of Gog, “Have you come to capture spoil? Have you assembled your army to take plunder, silver, and gold?” Gog’s invasion is to take spoil. They see the abundance of Israel and how it can help their ailing economies.
We have seen the build-up of the forces of Russia, Iran, and Turkey in Syria. Israel has agreed to a pipeline to supply Cypress, Greece, and Italy with natural gas for the first time. This reaches into the European markets of Russia and Iran.
Russia and Iran’s exports of gas have been severely hurt by this. More fields are being developed in the Mediterranian Sea further enriching Israel.
The bait is being put on the hook.
