Most people agree that in the battle of Gog and Magog a confederacy of Islamic nations will attack Israel. There are some arguments about it, but again the majority of scholars seem to believe that this confederacy will be led by Russia. My question was, why would Russia want to attack Israel? Why would it ally itself with Islam? It just didnt make much sense to me.
In 2009 the Tamar natural gas field was discovered some 50 miles off Haifas coast, well within Israeli waters. With an estimated 250 billion cubic meters, it is large enough to meet all of Israels natural gas requirements for the next 20 to 30 years. Which is especially significant when we consider how many times the Sinai natural gas pipeline to Israel and Jordan has been sabotaged since the fall of Mubarak, disrupting the delivery of natural gas to Israel in bold opposition to the 2005 agreement that was an outgrowth of the 1979 peace treaty. The Tamar field is expected to be fully operational by 2013.
The following year, another natural gas field was discovered 30 miles to the west of Tamar. It was named Leviathan because of its size. It is estimated to contain around 470 billion cubic meters of gas. It is scheduled to be operational 4 years after Tamar does. A smaller field, Tanin, with an estimated 33.9 billion cubic meters of natural gas, was discovered earlier this year. And the exploration continues.
Israels newly found riches will have a three-fold effect that could lead to the war described in Ezekiel 38.

I hope you mean that in a sarcastic kind of way.
And yes, looks to me too, like God's plan is coming together.
You should read the book The End of America by John Price for a seemingly accurate play by play. It's available on Amazon as a Kindle download for $0.99.
Warning though, it won't help you to sleep at night.
What do you mean by "most people" and "the majority of scholars"?
Actually, it's not God's plan. He just knows us well and is trying to warn us to wise up and change our stupid ways. And obviously he cares for us, for he is sending his son a second time to save the remnant; what he calls the elect and hopefully untold others.
He means “most” evangelicals. As Mainstream Denominations and Catholics are amillennial.
