I have noted recently of the increasingly tight military ties and exchanges between the alliance prophesied to come against Israel in the last days: Russia, Libya, Iran, Turkey, Armenia, Sudan/Ethiopia and some others. Today I'll focus on the reason that they do this (aside from God drawing them into the conflict) - it is for a spoil. In the last year Israel has discovered massive oil and gas reserves, and the riches keep on coming:

Russia invades Israel to plunder "A Great Spoil" - Ezekiel 38:13 "Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish with all its villages will say to you, 'Have you come to capture spoil? Have you assembled your company to seize plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to capture great spoil?'"
As the Gog-Magog pieces come ever closer together, Israel becomes richer....and more of the prophesied target!
