THE ABUNDANT WEALTH OF THE DEAD SEA
God dug a tremendous hole in the earth many years ago to use in storing a
treasure for His people which staggers the imagination. Yes, the lowest
elevation on the earth’s surface is the Dead Sea. The way God arranged things,
the Jordan River and its tributaries have been washing minerals down into that
hole which God prepared, for thousands of years, and in recent years it has
been found to be the most valuable depository of strategic chemicals in the
world. George T.B. Davis, that great man of God who led the Million Testaments
Campaign many years with its famous “Prophecy Edition of the New Testament has
written in his book, “Rebuilding Palestine,” that “One is almost staggered by
the computed wealth of the chemical salts in the Dead Sea. It is estimated
that the potential value of the potash, bromine and other chemical salts of
its water is FOUR TIMES the wealth of the United States.” With the tremendous
world-wide food shortage that threatens mankind, any would-be dictator would
take high risks to capture a treasure like this which could furnish enough
fertilizer for the whole world, and with its other chemicals provide the
explosives needed to subdue all its enemies!
Why, do you think, has the Kremlin spent billions helping the Arabs fight
Israel? Just because she likes the Arabs?
No, there is little love lost between them, but Russia wants the riches of
Israel and its strategic location for world domination. The Arabs outnumbered
Israel fifty to one, and it seemed a simple way to get what she wanted, The
Soviets would have little trouble taking it from the Arabs if those Arabs
couldn’t even hold their own against little Israel. But the Godless gang in
the Kremlin never took into consideration that our Creator has it all written
down in His Book what His plans are for Israel, and the disposal of her
enemies. When Israel finally accepts her Messiah (” a nation born in a day”)
the nations of the earth will be beating a path to her door for those
chemicals which mean life to them, God unfolded this secret through Isaiah. In
the 6Oth Chapter, Isaiah is comforting suffering Israel with a glimpse of what
God has in store for them. In verse 2 he tells us that “…the darkness shall
cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon
thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee.” In the next verses God shows
that the nations of the earth will all gather together and come to Israel, and
in the fifth verse He tells them WHY; “Then thou shalt see, and flow together,
and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; BECAUSE THE ABUNDANCE OF THE SEA
SHALL BE CONVERTED UNTO THEE, THE FORCES OF THE GENTILES SHALL COME
THEE.” Yes, some day all nations will need what Israel has and barter their
most treasured possessions for it!
A few years ago it looked as though the Kremlin was having all its own way
with making a mighty alliance out of Soviet-Arab facilities. Thousands of her
scientists swarmed over as advisors, and she spent billions in arms for the
Arabs and the completion of the great Aswan Dam on the Nile. But the Egyptians
soon were fed up with the arrogance of the Soviet swarm within its borders and
finally ordered them out! The men in the Kremlin saw the handwriting on the
wall as little Israel so badly trounced her foe time and time again, and she
began plotting to do the job herself. They began preparing for a tremendous
invasion force to go down over the mountains of Syria to seize Israel.
For years people had laughed at the prophecy that after God destroyed that
great army in the mountains that are in the northern part of Israel, that
Israel would not have to buy fuel for seven years. She would be burning the
weapons of her enemy. Only recently has it been known that the tanks and
weapons of this army are made of non-metallic materials which burn like coal,
to thwart the Israeli metal-seeking tactical atomic missiles!
Reuters News Agency has reported large Russian purchases of special archery
equipment from England, so powerful and accurate that it can shoot an arrow
through a man’s heart at 100 yards and it will keep on going! It is no secret
that Russia has bought up large numbers of horses recently, of a type best
adapted for military invasion through mountains. How wonderful the way
improbable Bible prophecies are coming true these days! Who would have dreamed
of a literal fulfillment of Ezekiel’s prophecies of bows and arrows and horses
figuring into this great battle when Russia and her satellite armies are
destroyed by God in a cataclysm from the sky! Study Ezekiel 38 and 39 for
God’s version of what will happen to the Russian armies.
Christians, this is not a pipe dream. These are carefully authenticated facts,
which fit perfectly into the pattern of Bible prophecy. Let’s get busy while
there is yet time, with tracts and personal witness, rescuing those who still
need to receive Christ as Saviour before it is too late and His prophesied
judgments come. Unsaved friend, the day of grace is still here, but it may be
gone tomorrow or next week. Repent of your sins and ask Christ to take over in
your heart and life, and He will, for He said, “Him that cometh unto Me I will
in no wise cast out.” But this is today’s opportunity. This same Saviour, now
gracious and forgiving, is soon to be the JUDGE, Who, when the day of grace is
over will sternly say, “Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire,
prepared for the devil and his angels.” Matthew 25:41.
