Will Israel attack Iran? Don’t underestimate the military capability of this blessed nation. They are not a nation of saints, but be sure that the God of Israel doesn’t take kindly to the nations messing around with Israel & her interests.

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” – Zechariah 12

Quote from Epicenter book (published 2006), before all the headlines on this started to  show up: “FUTURE HEADLINE: ISRAEL DISCOVERS MASSIVE RESERVES OF OIL, GAS.” Note the when news volume on these topics started (2008) according to Google screenshot below.

Both of these (more on oil, more on oil & gas as well as BBC : Could Israel be another Middle East oil giant?) have since happened & this is not the first “lucky guess” from Rosenberg’s books. Oil production has some challenges, but potential is starting to look more actual as months pass by:

Quote (from BBC, 30/09/2011):

The project could be lucrative. The World Energy Council estimates Israel is sitting on enough shale to produce around four billion barrels of oil, enough at today’s usage to keep the country in oil for more than 40 years. Mr Nguyen’s company claims Israel may turn out to have oil deposits comparable to Saudi Arabia, which sits on an estimated 260 billion barrels. Corben says it may not be a fair comparison. He says in Saudi Arabia “oil is actually oil” whereas in Israel a lot of money needs to be spent heating the rock and recovering the oil. And there’s a long way to go before the company proves its technology will work, and before it gets all the necessary government permits.

How is it possible to predict headlines such at this? That’s what hundreds of interviewers have asked him. He says he gets it from the Bible. Does the Bible really talk of things like this? Some people have started taking both Rosenberg & more importantly, the Bible more seriously.

Some background over the ‘weird coincidences’ that seemed to match what Rosenberg wrote as fiction…

From Wikipedia:
A Modern Nostradamus?
Rosenberg’s novels have attracted those interested in Bible Prophecy, due to several of his fictional elements of his books that would occur after his writing of books. Nine months before the September 11th attacks, Rosenberg wrote a novel with a kamikaze plane attack on an American city. Five months before the 2003 invasion of Iraq, he wrote a novel about war with Saddam Hussein, the death of Yasser Arafat eight months before it occurred, a story with Russia, Iran, and Libya forming a military alliance against Israel occurring the date of publishing, the rebuilding of the city of Babylon, Iran vowing to have Israel “wiped off the face of the map forever” five months before Iranian President Ahmadinejad used similar language, and the discovery of huge amounts of oil and natural gas in Israel (a major gas discovery occurred in January 2009). A brief article in U.S. News & World Report referred to him as a “Modern Nostradamus” (quoted below) although Rosenberg tries to play down those proclamations, stating that “I am not a clairvoyant, a psychic, or a ‘Modern Nostradamus,’ as some have suggested.” He gives the credit for his accurate predictions to studying Biblical prophecy and applying to the modern world.

U.S. News & World Report:
It’s getting a little weird being Joel Rosenberg, the New York Times bestseller of terrorism thrillers and speechwriter in Steve Forbes’s 2000 presidential campaign. First, he wrote The Last Jihad about a terrorist’s kamikaze attack on a U.S. city and the subsequent hunt for Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. That was well before 9/11. Now he has written The Last Days, which opens with a Palestinian attack on a U.S. convoy, just like what happened a few weeks back. And look out, Yasser Arafat: Rosenberg offs you on Page 28. “People,” said Rosenberg, “are starting to think these books are ripped from tomorrow’s headlines.”

Is it in American & Western interests to topple Middle Eastern / North African regimes? How likely is it that Libyan war efforts are really due to “the humanitarian crisis”? Do nations typically go to war for this reason? If not, why now?
