Fundamental Prophets - Wealth and Oil #7

Black oil is never left!



     David Jeremiah quotes a Mark Hitchcock:

     During the coming Tribulation, the gulf between rich and
     poor will grow wider than ever before. Food will be so
     expensive that only the very wealthy will have enough.
     Famine will relentlessly hammer the middle class until the
     middle class disappears. The vast majority of people will
     wallow in misery, but the rich will continue to bask in the
     comfort of their luxurious lifestyle. The world will be
     radically divided among the elite "haves" and the mass of
     the "have-nots."... This will make the suffering of the
     have-nots even more unbearable as they watch the privileged
     few indulge themselves in the lap of luxury.

Notice no Bible verse is given. Both Hitchcock and Jeremiah talk
about "famine" in a few pages, the famine given by Jesus in
Matthew 24 and Revelation 6:5-6. If you have read (if not you
need to) my expounding on Revelation under "The New Testament
Bible Story" and in other studies on "prophecy" and "end times"
and "Matthew 24" on this Website, you will have seen that the
famines come BEFORE the Great Tribulation. So the argument they
make about "famine" under the Beast Power during the Great
Tribulation is void - Keith Hunt

     Economic chaos always hits the poor and middle classes
harder than the rich. Indeed, the superrich are rarely touched by
it at all. If a billionaire's net worth falls by 50 percent, he
is still worth $500 million. Even the wealthiest people can spend
only so many dollars in a day. But if a poor or middle-class
person who lives day-to-day or month-to-month is hit by economic
recession, he is plunged immediately into a lower standard of
     We have recently observed this phenomenon in America. Since
Americans tend to live at or beyond their means and maintain
little or no savings, a downturn in economic conditions impacts
their lifestyle immediately and drastically.
     During our most recent recession, I noticed a profusion of
books and seminars being promoted to help people take advantage
of the bad economy. These offerings are built around a common
theme: predation. During times of economic chaos, those with
money can get richer by stepping in and buying at bargain rates
what the lower classes must abandon, such as real estate and
stocks. Thus with each economic upheaval, the gap between rich
and poor widens and will continue to do so until it reaches
crisis proportions at the time of the Tribulation.
     In late October 2009, the Pew Research Center reported that
the leading story in the "news hole," or topics covered on
television news, was the economy. More airtime was spent on
economic news than on the rapidly spreading HINI flu and the
panic over vaccine shortages. The ratio of time distribution
between the economy and the swine flu was about 4 to 1. More
airtime was spent on the economy than on the wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan or anything else.
     The story driving the economic coverage was the public furor
over the perceived unfair distribution of wealth in the current
financial crisis. In particular, as summed up by CBS's Chip Reid,
"For the titans of Wall Street, it's like the recession never
happened. Less than a year after the big banks helped cause the
financial meltdown, they're on track to pay out a record of $140
billion in bonuses this year."
     In 2006, the United Nations published the results of the
first comprehensive study of the distribution of wealth among the
households of the world. They defined wealth as the measure of
income, assets, debts, land, and other tangible assets. Data was
gathered from more than thirty-eight countries.
     The report showed the following: More than 33 percent of the
world's wealthy live in North America; 27 percent live in Japan;
6 percent in the UK; 5 percent in France; and half the world's
adult population own barely I percent of global wealth.
     The United States of America, Canada, and Mexico possess 33
percent of the world's wealth. By far most of this wealth is
concentrated in the United States, though the U.S. is far from
the world's most populous nation.....
     When the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, the result
is what is called the "middle-class squeeze." The major cause of
this squeeze is wages not keeping pace with inflation, causing
income to decrease in buying power and thus forcing middle-class
earners down into poorer categories. The world economy is setting
itself up for years of increased inflation due to the massive
amounts of newly printed dollars created primarily by the U.S.
stimulus efforts.
     As billions of printed dollars are injected into the
economy, the result is a decrease in the value of each dollar,
which is the same as an increase in prices. Increased prices
reduce the buying power of earned dollars, forcing people to
lower their living standards or even do without vital
necessities. We have seen this growing phenomenon in the number
of families who no longer have health care, in the emergence of
tent cities in major metro areas, and in formerly middle-class
families now depending on food banks.
     These developments may be the result of a temporary economic
crisis and not necessarily a permanent condition. But if
inflation moves to hyperinflation, the ability of formerly
middle-class people to regain their position will be seriously
hindered. By the time of the Tribulation, the gap between the
rich and the poor will widen into a chasm, and the middle class
will disappear altogether.

Notice NO SCRIPTURES are given to back up the claim just given to
you. It is purely the funny-mental's ideas throw at you.
Your Bible gives another picture altogether than the picture
given by the fundamental guys.
If you've been studying from this Website you will have seen that
the Tribulation comes FIRST, then the heavenly signs SECOND and
then THIRD "the day of the Lord."
Turn to 1 Thessalonians 5, pick it up in verse 2, "For yourselves
know perfectly that the DAY OF THE LORD so comes as a thief in
the night (unexpectedly). For when they shall say, PEACE AND
SAFETY, then SUDDEN DESTRUCTION comes upon them....." (vv.2-3).
The Beast Power of Europe will, so people will believe, brought
them PEACE and SAFETY!!
The USA, Canada, Britain, and other nations of the West, will
have been DESTROYED! What peoples remain of them will be taken
captive to the lands of the Babylon/Rome Beast power of Europe.
And those going along with, worshipping the image of the Beast,
those willing to live under the laws of the Beast power, will be
buying and selling, doing business, making a living, thinking
their mighty Empire has brought them prosperity, safety, and
We get a magnified picture of that time in Revelation 18.
The Beast Empire will be destroyed, but notice some of the verses
in this chapter. They show that for a short time (the total time
for the Tribulation and day of the Lord is about 42 months or
1260 days as given in Revelation) there will be great prosperity
under the Beast's rule.

"....the merchants of the earth have waxed rich through her
abundance of her delicacies ... how much she has glorified
herself, and lived deliciously ... And the kings of the earth,
who have committed fornication (spiritual) and lived deliciously
with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall
see the smoke of her burning ... And the merchants of the earth
shall weep and mourn over her, for no man buys their merchandise
any more. The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious
stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and
scarlet, and all thy wood, and all manner of vessels of ivory,
and all manner of vessels of most precious wood, and of brass,
and iron, and marble. And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments,
and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat,
and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and
souls of men. And the fruits that your soul lusts after are
departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly
are departed from thee ... The merchants of these things which
were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for fear of her
torment, weeping and wailing. And saying, Alas, alas, that great
city that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and
decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls. For in one
hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and
all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by
sea, stood afar off ... saying, Alas, alas, the great city,
wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of
her costliness, for in one hour is she made desolate ... And the
voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipes, and trumpets,
shall be heard no more at all in thee, and no craftsman, of
whatever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee, and the
sound of the millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee. And
the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the
voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more
at all in thee; for thy merchants were the great men of the
earth...." (Revelation 18)/
Now, that is what the Scriptures say my friends. The ideas of men
are just that - ideas - unfounded on  Scripture.
The prophecy of Revelation tells you that this might
Babylon/Roman/Religious Beast power - the 7th and last
resurrection of the Holy Roman Empire shall be not ONLY mighty in
political and military and religious power, BUT ALSO in TRADE,
AND SAFETY HAS COME TO EARTH. They will worship the image of the
Beast, they will believe the false prophet is God on earth, they
will wallow in the Beast's riches and physical trading/craft they
will bring. There will be joyous marriages, joyous religion the
image of the Beast style. People will for a short time think
heaven has come to earth. People will believe the nations and
people destroyed by the military Beast power NEEDED TO BE
DESTROYED! They will believe THEY - all peoples within the
Babylon Beast Empire are the servants of the Lord to bring the
Kingdom of God to earth and to crush their enemies, they see as
needing to be crushed. The Great Tribulation under the rule of
the Beast Empire will FLOURISH - have for a short while PEACE AND
SAFETY AND PROSPERITY!! All within its deception will BUY AND
SELL and find trade and all physical good things. To them it will

Now friends you have just read what the Bible says, not what man
says, but what is written in the Bible, and as it is so written
so shall it comes to pass!

Heeerrre weeee goooo again - the funny mentals just will not give
up the dirty oily ideas - Keith Hunt

     Although I devoted an entire chapter to the topic of oil and
to the related Battle of Gog and Magog by the new axis of evil in
an earlier book, I must revisit this subject here because it is
one of the major financial signs pointing us toward the
     To show how this subject relates to the coming end times, we
will turn to the words of the prophet Ezekiel:

     Thus says the Lord GOD: "On that day it shall come to pass
     that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an
     evil plan: You will say, 'I will go up against a land of
     unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell
     safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having
     neither bars nor gates' - to take plunder and to take booty,
     to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are
     again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the
     nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in
     the midst of the land" (Ezekiel 38:10-12).

     We know from the earlier part of Ezekiel 38 that this
prophecy concerns the war of Gog and Magog against Israel. Some
think this war might take place BEFORE the Rapture. I believe it
will take place right AFTER the Rapture, in the early days of the
Tribulation. Either way, we should give some primacy to under-
standing this war, for if we believe that Jesus could come in our
lifetime, that means the war could well take place within
the next five years.

Well once more MARK my words, color them yellow! This war will
not come in the next 5 years, in fact it will not come UNTIL
AFTER Jesus has returned, and all 12 tribes of Israel are brought
back to the Promised Land. Look again at the verses quoted above.
Do you see what is said? Do you see some key words? Gog and Magog
come up to a land and people WITHOUT WALLS, NO BARS NOR GATES!! I
mean surely a child can see this is NOT Israel in the Holy Land
today! Can you EVER imagine the Jews in Palestine EVER GIVING UP
PROTECTION - firearms, guns, rocket, war-machines, and dwelling
without any DEFENCE? With all that those people have gone through
in the last 100 years especially, it would be silly beyond words
to ever think they would put down their arms and have no defence.
Yet SOME funny-mentals want you to believe they will do so!
As I've fully explained in my study on Ezekiel, this Gog and
Magog coming against Israel will not happen until AFTER Jesus has
come. The prophecy goes on to say they will be using their
weapons as firewood, for 7 years. You do not use modern steel
war-weapons as firewood! - Keith Hunt

     Ezekiel tells us that the Gog-Magog assault against Israel
is the result of an evil thought that is put into the mind of the
leader of a coalition army made up of many nations. These nations
come against Israel intending to wipe her from the face of the
earth. No one stands with Israel against the armies of Gog and
Magog but the God of heaven.
     Where is the United States at this moment? Why are we not
pictured as standing with our perennial ally Israel? The
desertion of Israel by the United States was once deemed
unthinkable, but no longer. Increasingly, our nation is catering
to the oil-producing nations whose product gives them an
inordinate hold over our contemporary lifestyle. These nations
have an expressed hatred for Israel.

When you understand this prophecy CORRECTLY, where is the USA?
Why they are in the Holy Land, they are part of the House of
Israel that went into captivity at the start of the Great
Tribulation, and have now with ALL the tribes of Israel and the
tribe of Judah (the Jews) been brought back to the Promised Land by
Jesus and the saints. That's where the USA is, the people left of
them. And then David Jeremiah goes into the oil stuff once more,
as the funny-mentals have been doing for 40 years or so - 
Keith Hunt

     As if to prove my point, in words not even used when
speaking of proven enemies like Iran and North Korea, Secretary
of State Hillary Clinton, with the apparent sanction of the
administration, referred to Israel's proposal to build housing in
its own capital city as "an insult to the United States." The
Anti-Defamation League's president, Abraham Foxman, observed, "We
cannot remember an instance when such harsh language was directed
at a friend and ally of the United States.."
     While Clinton later offered reassurances that our bond with
Israel is "unshakeable" and that our commitment to Israel's
security is "absolute," there is no denying that there is a
rending of that bond on the part of the United States.

It is all family argument! There will NEVER be a split between
the USA and the Jews in Palestine. Prime Minister Harper of
Canada (2010) gave full assurance to the Jews that Canada stood
behind them 100 percent. When push comes to pull so will the USA
- Keith Hunt

     A further indication of this rift became acutely apparent
with the unprecedented White House snubbing of Israeli prime
minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a March 2010 visit to the United
States. The president, angry over his failure to convince the
prime minister to abandon the Jerusalem housing plan, chose not
to dine with him and refused him the press briefing that normally
accompanies visits by heads of state. According to the Israeli
newspaper Haaretz, "The Prime Minister leaves America disgraced,
isolated, and altogether weaker than when he came."

Now what David Jeremiah did not know when he put together his
book was that a number of months later President Obama and Prime
Minister Netanyahu met later that year in very hospitable
conversation in the White House. Oh when people open up their
mouth they often put their foot in it - Jeremiah sure did - 
Keith Hunt

     If Israel's friends treat her in this way, it is no surprise
that the evil thoughts of her enemies will one day draw them into
war against her. What could produce thoughts evil enough for
nations to amass armies against this tiny nation? Well, what does
the Middle East have that the whole world needs? I think you know
the answer: oil.

Oh it's OIL, it's OIL, IT'S OIL!! Keith Hunt

     It is likely that oil is the "plunder and booty" spoken of
in the Ezekiel passage above. The Middle East has rich deposits
of oil because it was once an area rich with more lushness than
any other place on the planet. The Garden of Eden was in the
Middle East. If, as most scientists believe, oil is formed
primarily from the decomposition of animal and vegetable matter,
then this is the area where we might expect the greatest oil
deposits. And that is indeed the case, as the following chart

Islamic Domination of World Oil Reserves
Islamic Countries - 5%

Rest of the World - 5%
Russia - 5% 
South & Central America - 8%
Eurasia - 3% 
Africa - 3%
North America -16%

Outlook, 2009," May 2009, 

THIS WAS PUT OUT IN 2009!! That agency and David Jeremiah ALL had
their heads in the sand, nay, not just their heads, they had
their whole body down in the sand with just their toes sticking
All of them obviously did not check in with CANADA! They did not
check in with ALBERTA! They did not bother to look at the Alberta
Oil Sands. Now John Stossel before he left 20/20 DID check in
with the Alberta Oil Sands in Canada. He announced it on 20/20 -
there is enough oil in the Oil Sands of Alberta to fuel the WORLD
on oil for the next 100 years! It is NOW a FACT - the Alberta Oil
PRESENT, as I enter this in November 2010!!!

Keith Hunt

     This chart also reveals another statistic about the world's
oil reserves - one that is a cause for serious concern: the
majority of the reserves are held by Islamic nations. Almost 60
percent of all the oil in the world's top oil-producing nations
is in reserve under nations that hate Israel and America. 


     The increasing demand for oil in the world will give these
hostile nations increasing leverage and power as oil-guzzling
nations such as the U.S. become more and more careful about
keeping relationships with these nations intact.

moving AWAY from oil - we are going into hybrid cars, electric
cars, and etc. Then the USA and Canada are out looking for more
oil beds off-shore. And they will find them. The ideas and words
of guys like Jeremiah who cling to this "oil prophecy" stuff is
so blindly dumb it is pathetic - Keith Hunt

     But the question arises, why would these nations want to
attack Israel? I learned the probable answer when I met recently
with the president of the Zion Oil and Gas company. He told me
that his company has been granted licenses by the Israeli
government to drill for oil in Israel. While the going has been
tough and the cost high, don't be surprised if you hear in the
near future that the nation of Israel has discovered oil in her
own land. What could this mean in terms of end-time prophecies?
The present oil-rich nations desire to destroy Israel, and they
have already tried it twice in modern history. Only Israel's
superior military capacity, achieved through armaments and aid
from the United States, has enabled Israel to repel attacks from
these hostile nations. Consider what might happen as the U.S.
grows increasingly dependent on Middle East oil and if Israel
does discover massive deposits of oil on her land. Would not
Israel's enemies jump on her for the "plunder and booty" of this
newfound wealth, knowing that this time the U.S. would not come
to her aid because of its utter dependence on their oil?

You talk about the silly reasoning of some fundamental prophets,
this kind takes the cake, wins the gold medal for stupidity! 
Jeremiah says the USA would NOT come to the aid of the Jews in
the Holy Land because the USA is dependent on the oil from these 
nations that hate Jews but have oil.
I am beginning to get lost for words as I read all this. David
Jeremiah obviously knows nothing about Canada, and it is just as
certain (unless he's sticking to his prophetic visions come hell
or high water) he knows nothing about the Alberta Oil Sands that
presently contains HALF of the known oil reserves on earth. He's
also just as blind to the fact that the USA is moving away from
oil use in many ways; sure not as fast as it really should be,
but it is moving away into other forms of energy - Keith Hunt

     Even if Israel does not discover oil, would not the oil-rich
nations that hate her use their oil as leverage to force Israel's
oil-hungry allies such as the U.S. to step back as attempts are
undertaken to annihilate their historical enemy? Either way, we
can see why endtime prophecies predict a massive gathering of
armies against Israel in the Middle East.

Oh there is indeed to be a massive gathering of Gog and Magog who
will come into the Holy Land, but it will be AFTER Christ has
returned, after the 12 tribes of Israel are united again as one
people (Ezekiel 37) and when they will need nothing to defend
them against an enemy - no walls, no bars, no gates, no weapons
of war. For it is God that will destroy the enemy with
supernatural miracles of destruction upon them. Because people
like David Jeremiah get this prophecy in Ezekiel out of context
and out of the story flow of Ezekiel, they are led off into silly
prophetic ideas; one of them just being the "oil" idea, which the
USA will need less and less of (especially from the East for
Canada can sell it to them) as it moves away from the use of oil
- Keith Hunt

     In Ezekiel 38:4 God tells these nations gathering against
Israel with their evil plan that He will "turn you around [and]
put hooks into your jaws." I believe that oil is the hook in the

Yes he really did say that "oil is the hook in the jaw" - yes,
look at it again. My oh my how some people can be so blind on
this black stuff, I think they must have it in their eyes, or
stuck on their jaw, as they cannot get rid of the idea that oil
is what will start the 3rd world war and the destruction of the
Jews in the Promised Land - Keith Hunt

     Since these nations are intent on their evil plan, God will
allow their lust for wealth to lead them to their own
destruction. It will be hunger for oil that will gather these
nations to war against Israel. Ezekiel is pointedly clear about
the motivation in the hearts of those who go up to the unwalled
villages of Israel: "I will go up against a land of unwalled
villages ... to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out
your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and
against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired
livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land" (Ezekiel

And according to David Jeremiah it is OIL that will drive them to
invade this tiny land that is called Israel. We are living in
space-age technology, but it is oil that many fundamental
teachers still pound out in books, that will lead the world to
destroy the Jews in Palestine and the 3rd world war and Jesus
Christ's return - Keith Hunt
