JERUSALAM, ISRAEL (Worthy News) – Israel's discovery of the world’s second largest natural gas field is much larger than previously estimated, according to a new report obtained by Worthy News.
The Tamar Gas field, offshore from Haifa, is now worth $8 billion, nearly double previous estimates of local analysts, said a report prepared by Wood Mackenzie Research and Consulting.
Tamar is the second natural gas discovery over the past 18 months. Natural gas will be flowing into Israel by 2012, officials said.
Analysts say the natural gas field will have a huge impact on the economy of Israel and is expected to make the Jewish state more energy independent.
"The state of Israel will make over $5 billion in royalties and corporate taxes from the production of the gas at Tamar field alone," said Gal Reiter, an energy industry analyst at Clal Finance & Brokerage, a leading Tel Aviv investment bank.

Gluttony is a sin. That usually refers to eating too much or more than you need. The result is fat which produces a lower quality of life and shortens your life time. It makes me wonder if gluttony of other things in my life are equally as detrimental.
This brings me to serving the God of “just enough, in the nick of time”. Don’t get me wrong. I love and appreciate God’s provision. He supplies according to my needs in awesome and miraculous ways, but sometimes I wonder why He doesn’t supply more than enough and earlier than I need it. Could it be because gluttony of His provisions lead to sin, also?
I don’t know about this so don’t write it down as truth spoken from the janitor. Just think about it. Maybe you will have an answer to a life long question of mine?
"Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near. " JohnNow that is the way to start the day. A guaranteed blessing by those that read Jesus' revelations from God. "Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne, and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth." Jesus I pray this prayer upon my family and friends that the evil one will have no place in my life or the lives of my friends.
"I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty." God establishes His authority! There is such incredible richness in just a few verses as Revelations begins to unfold. God bless you in the day that will unfold for you to serve the Lord God almighty. Praise the name of Jesus.

I visited my aged mother today. I picked up new medication and took it to her. We sat and chatted a few minutes, remembering my dad. He passed a few years back. My mother speaks more frequently of my father these days. I think she is beginning to look forward to spending eternity with him.
My mother shared with me that in my father’s last few weeks, he spoke of seeing Jesus at the foot of his bed. It was at a time when the pain was beginning to take it’s toll on my dad. It was during these days, my mother leaned over and shared an intimate moment with my dad. She told my dad it was ok to let go. She said she was in fact praying that Jesus would come soon for my dad.
In those last days, my mother and father were a picture of what God’s love is all about.
Thank you mom. Thank you dad
MOGADISHU, SOMALIA (Worthy News)– Christians in Somalia faced a tense day Thursday, August 13, amid fresh reports that fighters of the country’s main Islamic insurgent group al-Shabab beheaded four Christian aid workers for refusing to renounce their faith in Christ.
International Christian Concern (ICC), a major advocacy group investigating reports of religious persecution, told Worthy News that al-Shabab members killed Fatima Sultan, Ali Ma’ow, Sheik Mohammed Abdi and Maaddey Diil after kidnapping them on July 27 in the coastal town of Merca, some 90 kilometers (56 miles) from the capital Mogadishu.
“The Islamists kidnapped and eventually beheaded the Christians after they refused to renounce their faith in Jesus Christ,” ICC said. The four Christians had reportedly been working for a local non-governmental organization that helps orphans in southern Somalia.
Yet people all over the world choose Christ over life. Can you make any sense out of it? The sanity is found in a single word, love. We are to love others as Christ loved us. The bar has been raised. The standard has been set.
To deny Christ is to choose death. To embrace Christ is to have life. It is really that simple.
