    Did you see this story on network news. There is a man who blieves that there is oil to be found in Iseral. The ZION OIL COMPANY is seeking to do just that. There key verse is Deut 33:24. Has anyone else heard about this? If it is true and he finds "much" oil, what could this mean?

    I hope this company is successful. The world could certainly use more oil, gas, and condensate at this point in time.

    Zion Oil is owned by private U.S. investors , it would be interesting to see who is on that board and review their past expierences in the oil business. It almost looks like Harken's twin in the way that they put out their message.

    Heard about a similar scam 20 years ago. The claim was that the oil was very deep.

    By the way, would like a "young earth" person explain how oil got into very deep pools. God put it there during the creation?

    From LadyEagle's article.
    "Brown, pointing to the Bible he says he always carries with him, referred to several biblical passages he is certain indicate where to find petroleum. He stressed that two passages, detailing God's blessings to each of biblical patriarch Jacob's 12 sons, are very specific:


    * "Let Asher be blessed ... and let him dip his foot in oil." – Deuteronomy 33:24
    * "Joseph is a fruitful bough by a well ... blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that couches beneath shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head." – Genesis 49: 22-26

    Brown also pointed to other verses, such as the continuation of Joseph's blessing in Deuteronomy 33: "For the deep that couches beneath ... and for the chief things of the ancient mountains, and for the precious things of primordial hills, and for the precious things of the earth."

    The Twelve Tribes were each given a section of Israel as inheritance, Brown explains.

    Mapping the tribes' biblical territory indeed shows that Asher's area resembles a giant foot "dipped" into the top, or "crown" area of the land of Joseph's son, Manasseh.

    "The oil is there, where Joseph's head is met by Asher's foot," said Brown. "
    "
    Sigh...
    Isn't it wonderfull how some folks read the Bible like it is a technical manual instead of a religious text?

    It means that Israel will be an oil producing nation. Nothing more or less. If there's oil there, great for them. If there's not, so be it. I think the man is chasing a pipe dream personally, like those who occaisionally claim they can make an auto engine that runs off water, but he's certainly welcome to look.
