Where Are The 3000 Solid Gold Frying Pans?
As promised last week, I was able to talk to my archaeology friend and past Steeling Conference speaker Randall Price about Qumran and the Copper Scroll Project.
The Copper Scroll group is searching for Solomon’s buried Temple riches listed on the Copper Scroll that was excavated among the animal-skin Dead Sea Scrolls.
The Copper Scroll is a list of the Temple treasures from the time of Solomon. The amount and weights listed would be measured today in the tens of trillions of dollars—so much that if/when discovered in Israel, Russia’s Putin could be enticed to make a post-Rapture invasion of Israel.(1)
As the fiat currencies begin to fail worldwide, gold and silver, or a system backed by gold and silver, could become the only acceptable monetary exchange in the future—hence the reason for Putin to “devise an evil plan” to invade Israel.
Thus says the Lord GOD, “It will come about on that day, that thoughts will come into your mind and you will devise an evil plan,” Ezek. 38:10
Russia does invade to steal Israel’s gold and silver treasures, but loses badly. You can read the story in Ezekiel 38 & 39.
Randall was unfamiliar with anyone having used ground penetrating radar around Qumran. But he did say it was possible, although unlikely, that someone did it without a permit.
Randall’s had some past dealings with Jim Barfield, the main promoter of the Copper Scroll Project and didn’t think it was likely that they could get a permit from the Israeli government to excavate. Especially since Barfield was not an archaeologist (I think he’s a retired fireman).
