The World Bank is preparing to fund a project to keep the Dead Sea alive

Scientists report that the Dead Sea, located in the Jordan Valley of Israel, is receding at an astonishing rate of 3 feet per year which has brought together Israel, Jordan and the PA in an effort to stop the demise of the Dead Sea which is economically important to the entire region.

The World Bank has raised the funds for a feasibility study to look into transferring seawater from the Red Sea at the Southern border of both Israel and Jordan to the Dead Sea, a study to determine the economic feasibility of the Red-Dead Project and to conclude what environmental impact it would have on the region. The Dead Sea is known as a terminal body of water with its primary source of water being the Jordan River and this water supply has been declining sharply for the last thirty years so that the water level of the Dead Sea is dropping rapidly.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The Red-Dead Project, an effort to stop the Dead Sea from dying, could well set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

For a number of years, Israeli officials have been concerned about the demise of the Dead Sea with its rapid rate of evaporation and the continuing decease in the water from the Jordan River, the only water source for the Dead Sea. Several rescue projects had been proposed over the years to turn this environmental and economic disaster around. Now, with the World Bank joining with Israel, Jordan and the PA, there seems to be a potential for reversing the present trend of this region being depleted of its life giving water and the economic value it brings to all parties in the region. The Red-Dead Project, which would pump water from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea, could restore not only the water needed for the region, but firm up the economic importance of the Dead Sea to all parties involved.

In light of Bible prophecy, the Red-Dead Project could play a key role in preparing the region for the scenario called for in God's Word for the Last Days. Ezekiel 38 reveals that the Russian-led coalition of nations that will come against Israel at the beginning of the Tribulation in an effort to destroy the Jewish state will also come to take unto themselves an economic spoil, Ezekiel 38:12. Ezekiel 38:13 even mentions gold and silver as a part of that spoil which could be a result of the economic power revitalized by a restored Dead Sea.
