The US Navy is developing a cutting-edge technology that could revolutionize how US Navy warships can function at sea. The US Navy has developed a process which has produced a fuel made from seawater which can be used in airplanes. This new seawater-originated fuel has already been successfully tested in model airplanes. The first three links [1, 2, 3] give a comprehensive report on this revolutionary new technology which could eventually give US Navy warships a tremendous advantage over the navies of other nations.
The first three links describe how the chemical refining process turns oceanic seawater into usable fuel and include demonstrations of how this fuel has already successfully powered model airplanes in performance tests. Obviously, this technology is in the developmental stage, and one link opines that it may be 15 years before the US naval fleet is equipped with this new technology. However, I think necessity will require its development to be considerably accelerated.
The process can now produce jet fuel for airplanes, but can it also produce the oil-based fuel that propels US Navy ships that are not powered by nuclear reactors? I’m sure the Navy is thinking about that possibility. When/if this technology gets perfected, it will enable US Navy ships to stay at sea for much longer periods of time. The links include a mention that it requires a tremendous amount of power to make possible this chemical transformation of seawater into jet fuel. Obviously, this argues that the USA’s carriers which have nuclear power plants will be most able to utilize this process before any other ships can do it. Indeed, the carriers host the warplanes so carriers especially need the ability to produce jet fuel on their own without needing to transfer jet fuel from tanker ships, as is now the case.
If God allows time to go on long enough, this kind of technology will give the western alliance led by the nations of the modern ten tribes of “Israel” a major advantage over the navies of the Gog-Magog alliance prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39. I am always interested in the development of new cutting-edge technologies that are being invented or deployed both by the nations of the western alliance and the eastern alliance (the Gog-Magog alliance prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39). Since the Bible has prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39, Joel 2, Zechariah 14, Revelation 19, etc. that World War III is inevitable, I believe it is important to follow the respective military technological developments of both alliances that could be used in this future war. An examination of the Bible’s prophecies about World War III can be found in my article, What Ezekiel 38-39 Reveals about a Future World War III.
Now, please allow me a digression into a commentary about mankind’s inventiveness.
This “seawater to jet fuel” technology is another example of mankind’s incredible ingenuity. However, ours is not the only civilization of mankind that has had high-tech inventions. Perhaps readers have also seen numerous cable TV documentaries showing many examples of ancient technologies that indicate ancient mankind used to have very high-tech civilizations. The ancient high-tech civilizations were destroyed and mankind eventually entered a Dark Ages from which it emerged to rediscover many high-tech technologies that very ancient societies previously had. As Solomon observed in Ecclesiastes 1:9-10, “there is nothing new under the sun,” inferring that what mankind invents has already been previously invented by previous civilizations. Many cable-TV programs imply or assert that space aliens must have been responsible for bringing very high-tech inventions to ancient civilizations. I would assert that since God made mankind in his very own image (Genesis 1:27), mankind was, from the beginning, made with minds that have God-level intellects confined to physical, mortal bodies in our physical realm, and that ancient mankind is responsible for the examples of ancient high-tech knowledge that have been found and documented (the pyramids, the megalithic structures that modern mankind still can’t duplicate, the Antikythera mechanical computer (see fourth link), and the Parthian DC electric batteries (a cutaway version of which adorns the cover of my book, Parthia–The Forgotten Ancient Superpower). As an aside, historians refer to the ancient computing device that is called the Antikythera mechanism a “Greek” device, but they do so because it was found in a merchant ship’s wreck off the coast of Greece. While it may be a Greek-invented device which was being exported from Greece, it is just as possible that another civilization invented the device and it being imported by the Greeks but the ship transporting it to Greece sank before it reached its intended Greek port. We do not know the answer to that question.
In Genesis 11:6, God observed that early post-Flood mankind had already reached a tipping point of knowledge where they could literally implement whatever their imagination wanted to do. In other words, they were rebuilding the technologies of the pre-Flood world because they all still spoke and read the pre-Flood language so they still had access to all pre-Flood knowledge. God’s solution to stop mankind from quickly rebuilding the pre-Flood technologies was to confuse all their languages so each nascent nation would have its own language but no one would be able to speak or write the pre-Flood language any longer (Genesis 11:7-9). Mankind was, therefore, made illiterate and each nation devised its own written way of expressing its spoken language over the subsequent centuries. In the modern world, it is God’s will for the pre-Flood technologies to be recovered as we are living in the latter days of this age of mankind in which Jesus Christ prophesied that latter day mankind would finally develop a civilization which would mirror the pre-Flood world (Matthew 24:37). To review much documentation that we are now living in the latter days of this age of mankind that immediately precedes the return of Jesus Christ, please review my article, Are We Living in the Biblical Latter Days?
As a final thought, I have no doubt that modern mankind’s scientists are working on projects, weaponry and technology that we would, if we knew about them, regard as sheer science fiction. Combining the historical account of Genesis 11:7 with Jesus Christ’s prophecy of Matthew 24:37, I believe we are again at a “tipping point” where mankind will be able to do “whatever it imagines to do.” What do you “imagine” that mankind might do someday? Whatever it is, I wouldn’t be surprised if a secret lab somewhere is already working on bringing your imagined “something” into a reality.
