I am bombarded by numerous things in energy lately.
first of all, the record shows that america is the number one producer in natural gas, and will be the number one producer in crude oil shortly. years ago when the economy was just starting to go south, nixon removed the backing of the dollar by gold, and kissinger calls the arabs in saudi arabia and makes a deal to have opec trade all oil in U.S. dollars. that would prop of the worth of the dollar, and thus the birth of the petrodollar. well, because america won't need to be importing the amount of oil from arabia, there is a major problem brewing in that china is expanding in population and energy needs, so we will see the saudis make a deal with china to supply them, and they will trade the oil not in dollars, but in petroyuan. when this happens, foreign countries that hold treasury notes (they buy our debt) will no longer need them and they will dump them and they will all flood into our already screwed up economy. thus creating massive inflation and the economy will completely crash. so if you are invested in certain areas, you will lose a bunch. this will possibly have a new currency come out, and when the exchange from the dollar to whatever it is, Im sure the upper echelon will pocket a bunch and you won't have half of what you did from before.
prophetic words have said that when the crash comes, that has been foretold by rabbi johnathon cahn in his outline called the harbinger, it will be a signal of great distress coming upon the world. some don't fully agree that we are finished yet, and there is a good chance that the church will wake up and repent and cause an awakening, and at least certain people will be blessed in financial realm to finance God's kingdom. (this is what zion oil was to be about to many... the proceeds were to be given to ministries or wherever that would reach lost souls to bring into God's kingdom)
also with the discovery of the natural gas off the coast of Israel, it comes to say that we can use all of it to run vehicles on. cleaner, lower emissions, cheaper. why chase crude oil when its going to be left behind? if we still have time before the Lord returns, its a no brainer.
so for zion, they should be looking at either shale or natural gas in america to get started if they want to be involved in anything. forget about crude oil. by the time they find it (IF) it will not be what we need to go forward.
