Negev Wilderness
        
In Prophecy Update Number 7 we ended it by stating: "But if 1.6 to 2 million Jews are to survive in the Negev, they must have enough water and food to sustain them for 3 and ½ prophetic years. Has God already been instrumental in assuring they will have it? More on this in Prophecy Update Number 8." The answer is certainly a resounding YES, and in this update we will deal with the question of sufficient water. I first became aware of what God has done under the Negev wilderness in the late seventies. I already knew there were many shallow pockets of water that supplied the springs of the Negev, and that these pockets were reinforced by short bursts of desert thunderstorms from time to time. And I also knew this hydrological cycle could not possibly sustain a population of as many as 2 million future occupants. But God has already taken care of this problem in the distant past. In ancient times, when rainfall was abundant in the Negev and Sinai, God built up a vast reservoir of water deep beneath the hard rock layers of the Negev. There are billions of cubic feet of water stored under the Negev. However, a serious problem existed when it was first discovered. The water was 1300 to 2000 feet under the Negev, and this consisted of very hard rock layers. The technology of man, in the seventies, had not yet reached the level of capability to consistently drill a large number of wells to this depth. However, God informed Daniel, in Chapter 12, Verse 4, that something would happen in the end times which would increase man's technological capabilities: "But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." Now we have the technological knowledge to recover this vast underground supply of water. At first, it was feared the water might have a high salt content, such that it would not be usable. But we were surprised to discover its salt content was only one-tenth of that of the open oceans and seas of the world. It can very easily be converted to drinkable water. It was also a pleasant surprise to Israel to discover it could be directly applied to botanical growth without any harmful resultant. In fact, in many cases, it produces a higher quality of fruits and vegetables if left untreated from its recovery state. God has placed enough water under the Negev to more than support the remnant of Israel for more than 3 and ½ prophetic years. But what about food for almost 2 million Jews? More on this in Prophecy Update Number 9.
 

In our very first prophecy update we issued the following statement: "I believe it is quite likely that, by the time the year 2003 rolls around, numerous meetings will have been held behind closed doors between the leaders of Iran, Iraq, Palestine, Libya, Sudan, Algeria, Lebanon, Algeria, Morocco, and Afghanistan. I believe that these meetings will eventually result in a consolidated plan to lure Israel into a false sense of security. After this goal has been attained, a vicious surprise attack will be launched from the borders of Syria and Lebanon. It will be by far the best coordinated attack ever launched against Israel and, with the Palestinians operating from within, it will force Israel into the Negev." This week the Arab leaders held their first regular summit meeting in 10 years in Amman, Jordan. Bashar Assad, the president of Syria, in his speech at the opening of the summit, sent a message of reconciliation to Yassar Arafat. After his speech he met with Arafat in a closed meeting in a hotel room next to the summit conference hall. The meeting was also attended by Assad's vice president and Arafat's information and culture minister. Palestinian officials said the meeting was "fruitful and constructive," and that "They agreed to reactivate the joint coordination on the basis of a just and comprehensive peace." The fact that they agreed to coordinate their peace policies was a breakthrough after eight years of tense relations between the two sides. These tense relations began when Hafez Assad, Bashar's late father, became suspicious of Arafat because of his seeking a peaceful settlement with Israel on his own initiative, without Syria's approval. This is from a World - Associated Press release as updated on March 28, at 7:25 AM EST. For the next several years there will be more and more closed meetings between the leaders of the 10 aforementioned countries, and these meetings will also include the leaders of the numerous terrorist groups they control. At each regular Arab summit meeting there will be more and more "side" meetings behind closed doors. The only way that the Arab nations can ever hope to defeat Israel is to lead her into a false sense of security. This will take several years of numerous closed door meetings, and the terrorist leaders must be convinced that by temporarily stopping their activities against Israel, eventually they will be able to obtain their long-sought revenge in a killing spree of horror. When you see Israel and Syria negotiating for the Golan Heights, the terrorist groups settling down, and the Palestinians seeming to be satisfied with less than Barak offered them, then Katie, bar the door. "[9] Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee. [10] Thus saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought: [11] And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates," (Ezekiel 38:9-11).
