"RUSSIA DECIDES TO SEARCH FOR SODOM_GOMORAH - (for Power, Wealth, and Money)"
It gives one more risen for a
GOG-alliance to attack Israel, because of all the minerals and
chemicals they will find there. I believe thats what they realy look
for. - remember Ezekiel 38:10-23.v.
and Esajas 8:1.v. - (quick to plunder, - swift to spoil.)
Russia Decides to Search for Sodom and Gomorrah-in Jordan
by David Lev
Russia and Jordan have signed an agreement to search the bottom of the
Dead Sea for the remains of the Biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah,
Arabic news media reported over the weekend. According to the report, a
Russian company has agreed to conduct the search in cooperation with
Jordanian authorities, picking up all costs â€“ in exchange for
exclusive rights to film a documentary of the search. The report quoted
one of the Jordanian heads of the project, Zia Madani, as saying that
the search would begin in late December.
Russian company that was chosen as a partner for the search has special
underwater exploration equipment that can stand up to the extreme
salinity of the Dead Sea, the reports said.
Biblical archaeologists have several theories as to where the Sodom and
its associated cities were located. According to the Torah, G-d
overturned Sodom, Gomorrah, and three other cities because of their
degeneration, sin and iniquity, turning a once fertile plain into a
stark wasteland.. Abraham, who prayed for the cities, was unable to
prevent G-d from mandating their destruction. Archaeologists and
geologists have suggested that a major earthquake or meteor storm might
have been the means by which it occurred. Research has centered on the
area around the Dead Sea, and the modern city of Sodom, and nearby
Mount Sodom, which is made almost completely of rock salt, is
considered the most likely site of the ancient cities.
However, some archaeological evidence has emerged that indicates that
the site could be on the east bank of the Dead Sea, with two sites in
Jordan - Bab edh-Dhra, and Numeira, both considered viable candidates.
The Jordanian-Russian search will center on Bab edh-Dhra, which also
has several Christian monuments.
Madani, further evidence that the cities remains are located on the
Jordanian side of the Dead Sea came after recent NASA photographs of
the area indicated that the bottom of the sea is littered with debris
and objects not found in other bodies of water. According to the
Jordanian, Israel recently sent a submarine down into the Dead Sea in
an attempt to explore the bottom of the sea, but discovered that the
objects in the NASA photos were on the Jordanian side of the sea.
Jordan prevented the Israelis from searching over the border, and now
Jordan is seeking to discover what it believes are the remains of the
cities by itself.
Israel National News could
not confirm that an Israeli submarine had in fact searched the depths
of the Dead Sea on such a mission.
