Following Zion’s Stock Price

March 12, 2009 by  

Zion Oil & Gas Stock has been pretty active and I’ve received a lot of messages about its price volatility. Everything from wild optimism to ‘the sky is falling.’ Just so you know, our newsletter and our website aren’t a part of Zion Oil and I’m not a stock broker or a day trader.

But as someone intimately connected with the story of oil in Israel, here’s what I do know – what I’ve been saying all along. The promise of an oil discovery in Israel isn’t new news; as a matter of fact, the story first broke almost 4,000 years ago (read Genesis 49 and Deuteronomy 32 & 33). My dad, Jim Spillman, saw this promise in scripture and followed the trail that led him to the spot and the time the oil would be discovered. John Brown heard my father speak on this back in 1981 and took it on faith. It took Brown another 19 years of work, research and travel to Israel to get his first Israeli exploration license and found Zion Oil & Gas in 2000. Since John’s first trip to Israel in 1983 a lot of research, testing, exploration and discovery has transpired. With each test result or finding, the promise of oil in Israel gained a little more geological support. January’s massive natural gas discovery proved the existence of hydrocarbons in northern Israel in a very BIG way.

So here we are, nearly 4,000 years after Jacob’s blessing, twenty-eight years after John Brown first heard and believed the story of Israel’s oil, with every objective scientific result in the last two decades pointing to its reality, and still, everybody is freaked out over the change in Zion’s hour-by-hour stock price.

Folks, Zion is an OIL EXPLORATION company. Until they discover oil or fold up shop, don’t worry too much about daily changes in their stock price. And don’t worry too much about them folding up shop. John Brown has been at this for twenty-five years. The early years were a lot tougher than today and he just kept plowing. Zion Oil is here to stay. The managers and board members are personally (and financially) committed to this mission. It’s my belief that they’re at the end of their quest, not the beginning of it. The goal is in sight. And if you still can’t get your mind off of what Zion’s stock price was at 9:42 AM last Thursday or what it might be at 3:14 PM next Tuesday, here’s a graph for you. It covers about 3 months, not a long time, but long enough. The blue line is daily price at closing – up and down and up and down – but a lot more up. The red line shows a 20 day average (kind of smooths out the bumps). What do you see over 3 months? Up. Relax.

Here’s Zion Oil’s official response to questions about the stock price going up and down and up and down (but generally up):
Dear Shareholder and/or Friend of Zion…
We have received quite a number of telephone calls this week and many callers were asking us the same question:

“I have been watching the movements in Zion’s stock price. Please explain what is going on?”

We can’t and don’t comment on our stock price because… we really don’t know any more than you.
Zion stock is traded on a public market, so any member of the public or maybe an investment company can buy or sell stock, just as they wish.
We have no control over the Zion stock price in the public market; the stock price just reflects the actions of those trading that day.
What we can assure everyone is that the purchases and sales are not due to any information that is not publicly available.
We can also assure you that we are working towards long-term shareholder value and in the long-term, we believe, short-term fluctuations are irrelevant.
Thank you for your continued support of Zion.

“In your good pleasure, make Zion prosper…” Psalm 51:18
Shalom from Israel
Richard Rinberg
CEO of Zion Oil & Gas, Inc.

Gosh … kinda what I’ve been saying.

    ZN Stock Price fell below $10 yesterday… I bought some more. I called and found the Zion Oil & Gas license application extension with Israel’s Oil Ministry has recently been Approved for Zebulun/Issuchar License Areas, which now covers the entire 400,000 Sq/Mile Area of the prophetic Treasure Code Anatomy Map. They are also expecting formal answer and/or approval by the SEC for the Stockholders’ Rights Offering any day, which should give a boost to the stock, as the Warrants would be substantially “in the money” above the $5 price, with a 10 day period for investors to become stockholders or increase their positions to be covered in the Rights Offering.

    WHAT is the FULNESS the Earth? WHO shall Ascend INTO the Hill of the LORD? Lift up ye HEADS ye GATES, Lift them UP, ye EVERLASTING DOORS?

    PSALMS 24:
    1 The earth is the LORD’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. 2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. 3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? 4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. 5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah. 7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. 9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

    How does one Ascend INTO a hill? From deep beneath? How can gates lift up their HEADS? Could GATES be SYMBOLS for THE SEALS that have kept the pure oil deep beneath the Lord’s Holy Everlasting Hill trapped beneath? Will these everlasting DOORS lift up the HOUSE OF ISRAEL at the appointed time for THE HORN OF ZION TO BUD? Could ISRAEL be the ELEVATED FAT BRANCH of THE OIL TREE deep beneath the earth be represented in the the Menorah Candlestand, with ISRAEL’s MAIN LAMP yet to light up, at the appointed time?

    ISAIAH 60:
    Arise, Shine, for thy LIGHT has come. The Glory of the Lord has Arisen upon thee.

    Zion Oil’s SuperRig is now by the shore. After Passover, they will begin to move it to the well head and set it up. They should be drilling again very soon… Passover/Pesach Counting of the Omer has begun… 7×7 Sabbaths +1 day = 50, which is the number of JUBILE, a special blessing from the earth received without sowing and debt cancellation. Pentecost is 50 days after the Passover, & when in ACTS, the HOLY SPIRIT fell as TOUNGES OF FIRE upon the 120 awaiting for THE SPIRIT & EMPOWERMENT in the upper room. This year, Pentecost falls on May 31, 2009. Could we see another miraculous fulfillment, as THE HOLY ONE EMPowers his chosen ones with HOLY OIL, representing the Anointing of His Chosen Nation in the midst of the nations, & OPEC, who’s drink is SOUR GRAPES (CRUDE).

    Blessings to All who are part of what the Spirit is doing in these times of turmoil!

    At the end of Passover, the Rabbah of the Feast of the Lord, there is a Shaking going on in the trading of Zion Oil’s stock (ZN)… I see secular investors and those with little faith being shaken out of their confidence in Zion Oil due to the recent fall in the stock price, which, for those of faith is a good thing and a great buying opportunity. Today, I am buying even more of it yet again.

    I would not be surprised to see a complete change in direction of the momentum of the stock price after Passover, as important news events and Zion Oil announcements are made very soon. I also see something very significant happening by or before Pentecost, 50 days after the beginning of Passover, on or around May 31, 2009.

    Could we see a whole new dawn by June 1, 2009, as the Spirit of the Pure Holy One ARISES upon Zion in the physical manifestation of prophetic symbolism by PURE HOLY OIL Arising? If so, it will shock & amaze the entire world, and make Israel the Head, no longer the tail, no longer to be pushed around by the “international community” into violating the Everlasting Covenant by giving away the Holy Land of their inheritance for so called “peace”.

    We shall all soon see…

    Blessings & Shalom to those who implicitly trust the Word of the Lord!! Selah.

    Expected to see daily video footage from Israel. Do you know why this is not happening?
