Israel to sell natural gas to Europe, other hooks in their jaws

A potential source of spoil for Russia and others to be jealous of is coming to fruition.

However, I'm not sure that Russia will be all that affected by the loss of business with Europe, unless China's economy collapses and their demand for oil drops. Even if that does happen, will taking Israel's gas help Russia? Europe likely still won't buy Russia's oil.

Perhaps more likely is that Solomon's treasures are discovered. There's been lots of rumors created by instructions given on the Copper Scroll from Qumran that there are massive buried treasures within the Qumran complex. If Russia ends up getting tapped out in a war of attrition with Ukraine, then a defeat of Israel's neighbors that gives Israel full control of Qumran and the subsequent unearthing of the treasures could prompt Russia and some Muslim allies to take the treasures, whether because they want to gain wealth or to erase Israel's claim to it. After all, Ezekiel 38:13 mentions the nations standing aside asking if Israel's enemies are coming for silver and gold.

I was looking at the name of the gas field that's the main focus of the recent maritime deal with Lebanon. The Qana has field.

I looked up the word Qana and it's meaning in Hebrew and here it is :

Definition. to envy, be jealous, be envious, be zealous. (Piel). to be jealous of; to be envious of; to be zealous for; to excite to jealous anger.

Pretty interesting. I See Gog being jealous to anger as a hook in the jaw. Pride is hard to steer clear of and leads many to their own demise as Ezekial 38 & 39 foretells.

There is actually quite a long study of the word online. The word has a negative connotation but it also has a positive connotation when applied to God it could be used as full of zeal or righteous zeal. See below for further explanation :


"When God is the subject of the verb qana', the meaning is "be zealous," and the preposition le ("to, for") is used before the object: His holy name (Eze_39:25); His land (Joe_2:18); and His inheritance (Zec_1:14). Cf. Zec_8:2 : "This is what the Lord Almighty says: I am very jealous for Zion; I am burning with jealousy for her" (NIV), where we must interpret "jealous[y]" as "zealous" and "zeal."

Pretty fascinating. (If Im allowed to post a link to the in depth Qana word breakdown, Chris can advise and I will do so but if not, you can find it ;) )

I appreciate that, thank you!

Names are definitely significant when they show up in the Bible and I also think when they show up in Israel nowadays.

Do You Believe ?
When you identify an enemy, one of the best places to strike is his stomach.

The EU/NATO is a threat to USSR. With the pipelines cut and switching to other sources, the strategy to put the EU on an IV drip of morphine/oil/gas has been thwarted.
USSR has found it has little control of the EU now.

But with an energy switch to Israel, it creates a whole new scenario.

Again if you want to weaken your enemy, destroy its energy sources. Hence the current attack on Ukraine's power grid.

As for Europe, using Turkey and other islamic sites as proxies, attack the Med gas sources. Yep. This one plays in nicely.

And NATO will not stand another attach on its energy supply.

The Bible says that God will put a hook in the jaw of Gog and draw him back down to Israel. I'm just curious as to when Gog was down in Israel before. Has that happened yet?
