Christian Drilling Company Strikes Oil in Northern Israel - Israel Today

Christian Drilling Company Strikes Oil in Northern Israel

Wednesday, February 14, 2018 |  Israel Today Staff
Zion Oil & Gas several months ago began drilling at its new license in the Jezreel Valley, following the vision of company founder John Brown, who believes vast amounts of oil will be found in the Holy Land to the benefit and blessing of Israel.
The Dallas-based Christian-run company announced on Tuesday that it has found clear evidence of oil at the well.
During operations to clean the well bore, Zion reports that it encountered "free-flowing" oil while circulating the drilling mud.
This is a big breakthrough, and offers more than a little hope that there are, indeed, substantial oil deposits in the Promised Land.
In a statement released by the company, Zion's President and Chief Operations Officer, Dustin Guinn, said that this "is obviously very exciting news and as a result, we have decided to continue to drill up to another 70 meters (about 230 feet). We expect that to take a couple of days, and barring any operational difficulties, we will continue with our open hole logs immediately thereafter."
Zion CEO Victor Carrillo cautioned that the company cannot yet "comment on the commerciality or ability to successfully produce the well," and urged backers and shareholders to "continue to pray for safe and successful drilling...and for God's wisdom for management as we make key decisions in the following days and weeks."

Christian Oil Company Begins Drilling in Northern Israel - Israel Today

Christian Oil Company Begins Drilling in Northern Israel

Friday, June 09, 2017 |  Israel Today Staff
After years of planning, preparation and fighting for the relevant permits, Texas-based, Christian-owned Zion Oil & Gas officially began drilling in northern Israel this week.
For years, Israel Today has been covering the progress of Zion Oil, a company that exists solely to bless Israel (and, by extension, those who bless her - Gen. 12:3) by discovering the natural resources the Bible suggests lie below the surface of the Promised Land.
Zion Oil "exists because of God's faithfulness to Israel," company founder John Brown told Israel Today in 2011.
At the time, Brown was convinced that the Land was just waiting to spill forth its bounty for the Children of Israel. And he remains convinced of that today.
The new drilling site is located in the Jezreel Valley region of northern Israel.
Zion Oil's Megiddo-Jezreel License is firmly situated in the Levant Basin, an area that experts estimate holds up to 6.6 billion barrels of oil.
The coming months are going to be very exciting for Zion Oil, and the entire nation of Israel.

After 2600 Years, Prophecies Are Coming To Pass - Israel, Israel & End Times

After 2600 Years, Prophecies Are Coming To Pass

Israel, Israel & End Times Dec. 7, 2015

WE live in a unique time in history. The words of Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Daniel, Isaiah, and other prophets are literally coming to pass in our day.
We are able to watch the unfolding of biblical prophecy today in a way that believers, only 70 years ago, did not have the privilege to see. One of the most dramatic examples of this is in Ezekiel 36.
Ezekiel 36 is a prophecy, not to people or kings, but to the land of Israel. Ezekiel was told to speak “to the mountains and to the hills, to the ravines and to the valleys” (Ezekiel 36:6); that it will put forth fruit, man and beast would be multiplied on it, and the waste cities will be rebuilt when His people Israel returns to the land. Since the time of Ezekiel, this land was conquered and reconquered over 20 times. It never became a homeland for any other people, nor would the land produce for any other people group. Only 150 years ago, Mark Twain wrote about the fertile Jezreel valley:
This change has been visible on one of my favorite drives in Israel — driving south along the Jordan River from the Galilee region to the Dead Sea. 12 years ago, about 20 minutes after we would leave the rich and fertile farmland of the Galilee, the scenery would become dry, brown and dusty desert with small communities scattered along the way until you crested a ridge and saw the green and lush oasis of the ancient city of Jericho 90 minutes later. Today, in only 12 years, it’s a different landscape. Due to new Israeli desert farming technology, this same journey is virtually green with desert orchards, vast greenhouses and small farms. The desert is literally blooming and “filling the world with fruit” as the prophets said (Isaiah 27:6; 35:1).
In the hopes that the world can see Israel’s progress for themselves, Ezra Adventures is working on a book to provide photographic evidence and document these stunning and dramatic changes. “Ancient Prophecy, Modern Lens: The Land Of Israel Reawakens” will be a groundbreaking photojournalism book that will compare old pictures of the Holy Land taken between 1880-1940 to current pictures taken from the same angle. This book will reveal the miraculous changes in this region since the establishment of Israel in a way that has never been done before. The circulation of these old, yet stunning black and white photos have been very limited, creating virtually unseen changes that will be revealed by our “then and now” photo comparisons; from the vast desert farms in the Negev desert, to booming coastal cities.
Ezra Adventures need your help and support in order to accomplish this project — Kickstarter allows you to make a pledge for our various levels of backer rewards, but doesn’t draw on those funds unless our goal is reached.

Today's Israel Inspiration

The Hebrew name for Joseph is Yosef, meaning “he will add,” alluding to his mother Rachel’s desire to be blessed with more children. A deeper meaning relates to Joseph receiving some of the most abundant material blessings in all of the Torah. His ancestral land includes the green fertile Jezreel Valley in northern Israel. Zion Oil has begun exploration in the “deep that lies below” Joseph’s land, searching for valuable oil that may be uncovered in his blessed soil. Dig deeper into Zion Oil’s “Joseph Project” with their fascinating free books.

Oil for Israel’s Security

The Obama administration has for the first time refused to reissue its contract with Israel guaranteeing them an oil supply in a time of conflict, leaving Israel more in need of its own oil supply than ever before.

The Jezreel Valley by Ilan Rosen. For thousands of years, this area was only known for its rich Biblical history. When the Zionist pioneers found it a century ago, it was a malaria infested swampland, yet through their love and labor, this fertile area became rich and productive farmland.

Thank You

Please help us continue to spread the beauty and significance of the Land of Israel!

I live in London, United Kingdom, but having been visiting Israel from 1966, I have driven over its different borders, and love this superb country and its people, hence my return on a regular basis. Love the open spaces in particular, and the desert all the way to the Dead Sea & Eilat. Its special beauty, silence & special wild life as well as its botany... love it... So appreciate the photos which immediately transport me there in an instant... Keep them coming. Ayee MdC

World War I in the Middle East - I'd Walk 100 Miles with My Camel

Israel's History - a Picture a Day (Beta)

Posted: 29 Sep 2014

Volunteer Arab Camel Corps led by Turkish officers leaving Jerusalem (circa (1915)
The scope of the World War I battles in Palestine are simply not understood by most students of the Middle East today.  The Turkish, German, Austrian, British, ANZAC and Indian forces numbered in the hundreds of thousands. 

Mounted troops from the Australian, British, New Zealand and Indian battalions of the Imperial Camel Corps

To provide some perspective, we present pictures of one of the most utilized tools of that war -- the camel.  Tens of thousands were used in the war in Palestine.

The difficult terrain of the Sinai, the Jordan Valley, and the Samarian/Judean hills required extensive use of the sturdy and powerful four-legged "supply truck."

Consider this report by a New Zealand officer in his book With the Cameliers in Palestine:

In the advance up the coastal plain in Palestine, in November, 1917, General Allenby used thirty thousand (30,000) camels for carrying food, water and ammunition to the troops of one portion of the eastern force of his army. 
Turkish account of the war, and specifically the 1914-1915 campaign against the British on the Suez Canal, describes the forces and the logistical nightmare of crossing the Sinai desert:
Turkish Camel Corps in Be'er Sheva, 1915

The gathering point for the VIII Corps was Beersheba, which was inland, well away from the reach of British naval artillery. From there, 25,000 men would march 300 kilometres across the desert and reach Ismailia. However, this was nothing but a mission impossible. Moreover, every man was allowed one kilogram of food and drink water per day and this meant that they needed 15,000 camels. But what they had was just 2,000 animals. [Commander] Cemil Paşa mentioned this problem in his memoirs as follows: “I think there are many people who are wandering why we couldn't find the required 15,000 camels in a place like Syria and Hejaz.  We had to find 14,000 camels within one month.” Five kilograms of barley and 18 kilograms of water were allowed per horse and three kilograms of barley and five kilograms of water was allowed per camel.

1917, during the critical battle to capture the Turkish outpost and wells 
The Turkish account continues, describing the Turkish army's strength after difficult battles in Gaza and prior to the British General Allenby's move north into Palestine: As of May 1917, the Ottoman Fourth Army was consisting of 174,908 men, 36,225 animals, 5,351 camels, 145,840 rifles, 187 machine guns and 282 artillery pieces.

The following description is from 
"With the Cameliers in Palestine:"

The field ambulance, instead of using wheeled vehicles, transported the sick and wounded in "caco-lets," on the backs of camels. These consisted of two canvas stretchers balanced horizontally, one on each side of a specially constructed saddle. In these the wounded men could either sit or lie at full length, and were shaded from the sun by a small canvas hood. The jolting 
Indian army's camel ambulances
motion of the camel frequently was most trying to the badly wounded men, but it was sometimes a case of this kind of carriage, or death, and these camel cacolets, going as they did where wheeled transport was impossible, undoubtedly were the means of saving the lives of many wounded men who otherwise would have had a poor chance of being carried back to safety. 

Only male camels were used in the 
German soldiers loading wounded onto an "ambulance," 1918
Camel Brigade. It would have been an unworkable system to have mixed the sexes, as in the East no mutilation of male animals, either horses, donkeys or camels for sterilisation purposes, is ever practised by the Mohammedans. 

British Imperial Camel Corps "ambulances" in action, 1916

Horses generally have a strong dislike for camels, but this dislike can be overcome by daily contact. Some of the officers of higher rank of each battalion used horses during part of the campaign, and these soon grew quite accustomed to the company of their more ungainly associates.
