    Friends,

    Two large deposits of natural gas, by two companies, have been located 85 miles off the shores of Israel. For 10 years the Zion-Oil and Gas Co., founded and presided over by an American Christian, has been surveying land and has begun to drill near the "boot of Asher" for the "spOIL" that Ezekiel predicts will be sought by Israel's enemies in the "last days when Israel dwells in peace...without walls".

    I believe this period of peace precedes the final 70th "Seven" of Daniel. For
    Israel's enemies will be destroyed at the first instance of peace...while the Pre-Endtime peace of 3.5 years will end with Israel being overcome and "peace taken from the earth". So
    Christians who invest in Zion Oil shares at the initial discovery of oil [now at about $7 per share] may make enough profit to pay off their mortgages and other debts so as to be prepared for survival during the 1260-day Endtime of hardship. Of course that applies to Post-Tribbers who expect to face great tribulation. You may know that I believe the great tribulation will begin in the spring of 2030 so that the End might come "two days (2000 years) after Christ's ascent to heaven" (Hosea 5:14 to 6:2) ...by His coming "on the third day"...just two weeks into Christ's 2,034th birthday...either on Tishri 15, the last day, a Saturday, or on the 16th of Tishri, a Sunday, the first day of Israel's Millennial Reign over the nations.

    Too many are hiding behind the expectation that "no one knows the day or hour" of His coming and, consequently, it would be foolhardy for them to invest in profit-making stock that would help prepare for Endtime survival. I believe the Lord wishes believers to know, even now, the year in which He will come. Should any of you be interested, get all the facts about Zion Oil and Gas at www.zionoil.com

    Even Jesus was not able to pin the time down like you have. It looks like you have a real open door to heaven. If I were you I would mortgage everything and borrow, borrow ,borrow and put it all in that stock. By the way they are now offering at 5.00 and if you buy enough you get it for 4.00. but you must hurry because this offer ends on the 15th of this month. So we will be watching your investment. Keep us updated on the stocks rise.

    And of Asher he said, Blessed be Asher with children; Let him be acceptable unto his brethren, And let him dip his foot in oil. Dt 33:24

    Can I just say my skeptical antenna are up! Remember in order not to brought up on fraud charges they have to drill, but they don't have to find anything. I would advise being careful of the one using the Bible as a geological map.

    The founder of Zion Oil and Gas Co felt called of God about 27 years ago to
    discover the oil that should be found near the "boot of Asher in the last days".
    His testimony is compelling in the book you can order "free of charge" on his
    www.zionoil.com website.

    Please read my response to JArthur, Post #77, in the Dispensationalism thread.
    I am convinced the greatest impact of God's promises to Israel will begin to be fulfilled when the Oil is discovered. But I am cautioning against anyone seeing the start of Daniel's 70th "7" as having begun when the nations get together to maintain "Peace in the Mideast" due to the discovery of that Oil. What I am saying is that Mideast "peace" will continue under the global rule of Great Babylon...even after the enemies of Israel invade their land for the "spOIL"...so that the peace will be broken a 2nd time to start the Endtime of
    1260 days.

    Are the oil fields so big that Russia will swoop down from the north to steal Israel's oil while at the same time ignoring the huge and I mean huge oil reserves they already have access to without having to go to war in their own country?!?! I don't think so. It makes no sense whatsoever. Once again it is dispensationalists squeezing modern events into ancient texts without serious consideration for what those texts actually meant in the first place.

    How is Zion Oil any different then the prosperity gospel teachers populating TV? Answer, it's not when you consider the selective text interpretation and the promise of wealth for the faithful supporters of this project.

    No thanks. At seven dollars a share as far as I am concerned it is seven times what it is worth.

    Gotochurch and PreacheriinJesus:

    Whether it makes sense to some or not, the invasion by enemy nations into Israel to seek a "spoil" will occur "in the last days" because "God will put a hook into their noses" in order to accomplish His twofold purpose. In Ezekiel's final references among a total of 67, that twofold purpose in Ezek.38-39 exposes the failed attempt by nations of the "north"! The defeat of these nations by an act of God is the means by which Israel and Judah...and all the nations...will "know that Jehovah is their ruler"!! They will also know He "sent the Jews into captivity among the nations for their sins" and finally brings them back to their land to become His People once again...for the "second time...so that all
    mankind will know the Lord, from the least to the greatest"!!!
    Jer.31:31-34; Ezek.39:22-29; Heb.8:8-13.

    Umm, ok, so how many shares have you already purchased? Also, I prefer not to use dispensationalism to determine my financial investments or my understanding of scripture.

    Sometimes I'm left speechless

    This is what dispensationalism leads to. And some people think preterism is weird.

    “Your understanding of the inspiration of Scripture is utterly astounding!” Mel

    Why thank you Mel!

    ROFL!!! Man the lengths people go to to stretch the word of God in order to make a buck.

    "The Love of money is the root of all evil... "

    Watch I can make that statement point to Oil as well...
    YOu will see there are 6 "O"s in that sentence.. but since it is a statement from God, it must be perfect, therefore 6 "O's won't work.. there must be 7 "O"s for it to be perfect...

    As you can see... There must be a typo in the English text.. Obviously.. the word "evil" must be spelled wrong.. we must drop the "ev" and add an "o".. thus making the sentence perfect!... So now we have "The love of money is the root of all oil."...

    But why would the scribes choose to fool us by using the letters "ev" instead of "o".... it's a mystery that was hidden until today... What is the purest oil on earth? Extra Virgin Oil... or "EV O"... so obviously, EV and O can be substituted...

    Forget the Zion oil drillers.. go put your money in EVO...

    Friends,

    It should be clear among our readers that those who believe in Christ's future Millennial Reign (of 1000 years) over the nations are Dispensationalists while Amillennialists and Preterists deny the existence of a literal future Millennium!

    Sunday, my pastor preached on Christ having taught He would cause enmity between members of the same family...by comparing the "red horseman" in the Book of Zechariah with the Apocalyptic "red horseman" in the 2nd of 7 Seals in the Book of Revelation. On greeting him after the service, he claimed he had the "scripture to prove" his view. I always thought Christ is pictured as coming a second time on a White Horse in Revelation (but not as the White Horseman of Seal One)...and the Red Horseman represents the Beast of Daniel and Revelation who not only "takes peace from earth but causes men to take up their swords to kill one another"!!

    Christ is coming as the "Prince of Peace" according to Isaiah and Micah and
    "all mankind will come to know the Lord from the least to the greatest".

    JArthur has so far refused to discuss the evidence with Allan or me. And anyone who supports Amil or Preterist views will make fun of prophecies
    that must be literally fulfilled before Christ returns "after two days (2000 years after the spring Passover of AD 33); after He returned to His place; even on the third day" (fall of 2033; 2 weeks after His 2034th birthday)... when Ephraim and Judah "seek His face and repent of their sins"; for His former People are still the "apple of His eye"!!!! Hosea 5:14 to 6:2.

    One of God's prophecies will accelerate the search for Mideast Peace...that of Israel's discovery of Oil and Gas at the "foot of Asher" between Tel Aviv and Haifa...prior to Armageddon! God's purpose is to make the nations aware that they should seek peace and prevent war under "global governance"...even though He will destroy the System at Armageddon!! That peace will be broken twice...first before the enemies of Israel understand God's purpose and later as Antichrist "takes peace from earth and causes men to slay one another"!!! Rev.6:3-4.

    This type of investment "touting" is reminiscent of the "pump and dump" artists who patrol the blogs of financial sites. They have learned to manipulate the psychology of immature investors and thus control and manipulate the prices of equities to favor their own trading positions.

    Quantumfaith,

    I have no personal interest for investing in or promoting the purchase of Zion Oil stocks.
    My interest is the critical role which Zion Oil could play in preparing for endtime events.
    If my expectation is correct, discovery of oil greatly enhances efforts to make peace.
    That in turn may accelerate other aspects relating to prophecies of endtime events.
    Mel

    Lastday, thanks for clearing that up. I however, find, too much emphasis on our own interpretation of prophetic nuances of scripture and assigning dating etc. is a rather fruitless effort. Not to mention, to those currently outside of the household of faith, it may engender a lack of intellectual and spiritual respect for those of us who count ourselves among the faithful. I reminded of the numerous times in history when individuals and groups make grandiose predictions which turn out to be false, and this simply further takes credence away from the message we wish to share with the non-faithful.

    Dear quantumfaith,

    I appreciate the "caution" you make after the countless false dates set in the past that have harmed our Christian testimony and defense of the faith. I am among the guilty but it has always been my primary concern, for 77 years, to understand the order of events relating to the signs of Christ's return. As a young teenager, I sat under the teaching of a Plymouth Brethren minister with large prophetic charts displayed to the view of the congregation.

    Now I seek to relate what I think will occur in the order of events and believe the next
    significant prophecy is that of solving the problems of global peace, economics and trade among the nations. The union of all nations under Mystery Babylon is foreseeable.
    The problems of supply and demand for energy should intensify following the "peace" that Ezekiel predicts must occur before God causes the nations surrounding Israel to "take the spoil" that Israel possesses in order to convince all the nations that He is in control of their actions. Once that Purpose is realized, I think the final events of prophecy will accelerate rapidly. Personally, I think Hosea's prophecy most likely may be fulfilled in 2033 since Christ is now aged 1977...with 23 years to go until He has lived for 2000 years. Of course, I recognize I have no right to be dogmatic before you or anyone else.
    Mel

    Not sure if this is the same guy, but there was a guy back in about 1982 that ignored the geology data and drilled for oil in the area of the tribe of Asher, based on some Bible passages about Asher dipping the toe of his foot in oil. There were other verses, but this guy used scripture to try to determine where to drill for oil, ignoring the geology that oil drilling is normally based upon. The well came up dry.

    Oil exploration has changed a lot in 30 years, but a couple of things have not: it's a very expensive operation, and the international oil companies are very good at what they do. No wise man would take large amounts of cash and put it into any operation without taking common sense precautions, such as looking at the seismic data. Even if it's a step of faith, the bible tells us to use our brains to not be foolish with our resources. This was done 30 years ago and it lost a lot of money and came up empty.

    I cannot judge this man's motives, but I don't think such financial advertisements are appropriate on the board.

    Humblesmith,
    You wrote:
    I agree that I shouldn't have advocated ZionOil as a profitable company in
    which to invest. I apologize. However, I support John Brown for first having
    spent ten years in seismic research and his conviction that God has chosen
    him to discover oil in Israel. He has obtained 325,000 acres for drilling before the new advertising for investors.

    My main concern has been the increase in global efforts for seeking peace that will accompany the discovery of oil. God will destroy the nations that "invade Israel to seek the spoil" predicted by Ezekiel. For God's destruction
    of these nations will result in the nations recognizing that He controls the future of Israel. Furthermore, the peace that continues after this coming invasion of Israel should also lead quickly to the Endtime events of Daniel's 70th "7".
    Mel
