End Times Discovery? New Resource Deposit Could Shift Geopolitical Alliances

In a stunning geological discovery, a colossal lithium deposit has emerged along the Nevada-Oregon border, potentially ranking among the world’s largest. While this discovery holds immense implications for the electric vehicle (EV) industry, it also echoes the biblical prophecies of the end times and the events that must precede the Tribulation.

A coalition of volcanologists and geologists from Lithium Americas Corporation, GNS Science and Oregon State University unveiled their findings in a groundbreaking paper published in Science Advances on August 31. This remarkable deposit lies nestled within the McDermitt Caldera, spanning approximately 28 miles long and 22 miles in wide. Initial estimates suggest that this lithium mother lode could harbor an astonishing 20 to 40 million metric tons, surpassing even the notable reserves in Chile and Australia.

The revelation has ignited discussions among experts and scholars, drawing intriguing parallels to biblical prophecies. Belgian geologist Anouk Borst remarked that this discovery could “change the dynamics of lithium globally, in terms of price, security of supply and geopolitics.” This profound shift resonates with the prophetic narratives of economic upheaval and global realignments foretold in the Bible.

Geopolitical strategist Peter Zeihan, however, offers a cautious perspective. While acknowledging the promise of this geological treasure trove, Zeihan underlines the necessity for comprehensive prospecting and infrastructure development before altering long-term strategies. He emphasizes the importance of refining lithium ore into concentrate, a process integral to the production of lithium metal and batteries.

These developments emerge at a crucial juncture for the EV industry, as automakers grapple with potential lithium shortages that could hinder their plans to build EV sales into the tens of millions annually. The fierce competition for lithium resources has also ignited geopolitical tensions, particularly with China, and amplified concerns about the environmental toll of extraction.

Furthermore, the surging demand for electric SUVs, sports cars and sedans threatens to outstrip the available supply, as each battery necessitates roughly 17 pounds of lithium in addition to cobalt, nickel and other essential metals.

As the world witnesses the race for these critical resources, it’s impossible to ignore the biblical undercurrents that echo the growing turbulence of our times. The Bible forewarns of global shifts and resource scarcity as part of the prelude to the Tribulation.

Jesus warned that “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled. For all these things must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom…” in Matthew 24:6-7. With this massive discovery of a much-desired resource used in developing technologies, the strained geopolitical atmosphere becomes even more precarious.

Jesus continued saying, “All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

Rare and desirable resources have long been the cause of wars between nations. For decades, wars were fought over minerals such as salt, and the resources spent during the 1800s led to the global realignment of the 1900s and the world wars. All of these brought with them immense spiritual ramifications, revivals and apostasies that the world can look back on and see today.

As experts in the secular world warn about the possible shifts in the physical realm for which this discovery could be the catalyst, so too do the words of Jesus signify the spiritual ramifications that come with events that cause global shaking.
