Failed Coup in Sudan

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Cush and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet…

Genesis 2:13 The name of the second river is the Gihon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of Cush.

This is the first mention in the Bible of the land south of Egypt. The Hebrew word is Cush. It is translated as Cush or Ethiopia in the biblical text. It is a land in the southern Nile River valley. This is possibly modern day Sudan.

September 2021: Loyalists to the former President of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, attempted a coup. They have failed and over 40 have been jailed.

November 2017: Russian President Vladimir Putin invited Sudan President Omar al-Bashir to Sochi for a meeting. Sudan was asking for Russian protection against American aggression. The former Sudanese president is not exactly a choir boy in need of protection. He was wanted by the International Criminal Court for genocide and war crimes.

Al-Bashir was seeking an arms deal, grain imports from Russia, electrical industry assistance, and nuclear power for peaceful purposes of course.

Sudan PM Abdalla Hamdok

In 2019, Democratic forces resulted in al-Bashir being jailed and a new government formed under the leadership of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok.

October 2020: President Donald Trump announced yet another historic peace deal. This time, Israel and Sudan were partners. Sudan had been entered as a member of the expanding Abraham Accords.

For now, Prime Minister Hamdok remains in power. Elections are not scheduled until 2024. Currently, Sudan is governed by a civilian and military government.

Who knows what the twists and turns may be. But we know what is stated and how these events will ultimately play out…

The prophet Ezekiel states Russia, Turkey, Iran and allies are prophesied to invade Israel (Ezekiel 38-39). Arguably, Sudan may join Gog of Magog (modern day Russia) in their invasion of Israel at some point in the future.

If you keep looking back, you’ll keep yourself from moving forward to the great things God has planned for you. In order to get to where you’re supposed to be, you have to leave where you’ve been. Do not stay stuck in what is holding you back. Most often, that’s something on the inside. The windshield is bigger than the rear view mirror for a reason. Step out in faith…

Isaiah 43:18 Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

Isaiah 65:17 “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former things shall not be remembered or come into mind.”

Have an eye opening week my friends!!!

Sabbatical Year/Shemitah, Part 1

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 19, 2021 by paulthepoke

The following is the first installment of a five part series. This was originally posted seven years ago, arguably during the last Sabbatical or Shemitah year.

IF correct, the end of this Sabbatical year (Fall 2022) will mark the tenth complete set of seven for Israel since they became a nation again in 1948. As Jews mark time, this Shemitah year began on the Feast of Trumpets or Teruah on the sighting of the new moon, September 8th, 2021 on a solar based Gregorian calendar. This would be the first of Tishri on a Hebrew calendar. The land is supposed to rest.

The violation of this statute is the reason Israel was under God’s judgment as detailed by Daniel 9, 70 sets of 7’s.

Below is the Law as given to Moses by the Lord Himself.

Leviticus 25:1-7 The Lord then spoke to Moses at Mount Sinai, saying, “Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘When you come into the land which I shall give you, then the land shall have a sabbath to the Lord. Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard and gather in its crop, but during the seventh year the land shall have a sabbath rest, a sabbath to the Lord; you shall not sow your field nor prune your vineyard. Your harvest’s aftergrowth you shall not reap, and your grapes of untrimmed vines you shall not gather; the land shall have a sabbatical year. All of you shall have the sabbath products of the land for food; yourself, and your male and female slaves, and your hired man and your foreign resident, those who live as aliens with you. Even your cattle and the animals that are in your land shall have all its crops to eat.

These were words were given to Moses approximately 3,500 years ago from today. This is part of the ceremonial law, yet it has practical applications for Jews today. God wants His people to be holy or separate. God’s people should separate themselves from others by their behavior.

The word “Sabbath” in the Hebrew is transliterated. It is also “Sabbath” in English. The term is equated with rest. It is to be set apart, sacred, and holy.

Exodus 23:10-11 You shall sow your land for six years and gather in its yield, but on the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow, so that the needy of your people may eat; and whatever they leave the beast of the field may eat. You are to do the same with your vineyard and your olive grove.

“you shall let it rest…” The word is “shamat” in the Hebrew. It is defined by Strong’s Concordance as: to release, let drop or loose or rest or fall.

The Jewish people also refer to this as “shemitah”. It literally means to release.

Deuteronomy 15:1-2 At the end of every seven years you shall grant a remission of debts. This is the manner of remission: every creditor shall release what he has loaned to his neighbor; he shall not exact it of his neighbor and his brother, because the LORD’S remission has been proclaimed.

“remission of debts…” In the original Hebrew text “of debts” is not present. “of debts” was added by the translators. Shemitah is the Hebrew word for remission. Shemitah as defined by Strong’s Concordance means: cancellation of debts, letting drop of exactions, (temporary) remitting, release (from debt).

Shemitah comes from the root word shamat.

The land is supposed to rest for one year. The remission of debt will occur on the last day of the year in the fall of 2022 or the Hebrew New Year 5783.

Historically, challenging geo-political and economic circumstances arise. Get ready…

This Week in Prophecy: Ezekiel 38-39 and Russian War Games, Global Vaccine Mandates & Protests

This Week in Prophecy

https://valortube.com/groups/paul-lehr

Ezekiel 38-39 remains in the headlines as Russia is practicing war games with Belarus and Kyrgyzstan.

Anti vaccine mandates have taken the globe by storm in the last week. Protests have erupted in the United States, Israel, Austria, Paris, and Istanbul. Israel’s patience is being tested with the unvaccinated and have introduced genetic scanning to stop the spread of COVID and any mutation. Are these government mandates tying people’s behavior to economic participation a forerunner to the mark of the beast?

It would appear Revelation 9’s 200,000,000 man army is on the move in Afghanistan.

Daniel 9:26b …Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed.

These questions and more are discussed and answered on This Week in Prophecy.

Pay Day Is Coming… Joshua of Ghana

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Joshua Ghana with tags , , , , , on September 15, 2021 by paulthepoke

TEXT: JEREMIAH 25:15-29

Key Verse: Jeremiah 25:29 “For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the LORD of hosts.”

On December 25th, 1908, a newspaper published in Messina printed a parody against God, daring Him to make Himself known by sending an earthquake. Three days later, the city and its surrounding district were devastated by a terrible quake that killed 84,000 people! Payday is coming someday for all. It is the duty of the Christian to prepare for God’s judgment.

The passage under consideration unveils the decision of God against Babylon. Babylon would be destroyed for her wickedness and cruelty, and there was nothing anyone could do about it. Jeremiah was to warn of this impending judgment. He was also assigned by God to inform people that the cup of His wrath was soon to be poured on Israel and other nations like Egypt, Edom and the Philistines.

comeandreason.com

Judgment is coming. God has appointed a day in which He will judge the world for her sins. The present world system will not escape the judgment of God. All human deeds are on record and there would be no room for falsification of facts. Every action of man will be judged. Every thought (good or bad) will be brought to light. Boys and girls, and all adults of every race and in every continent will face the consequences of their professions.

The treatment we give to the word of God will determine our eternal destiny. Therefore, believers should not relax in their evangelistic outreaches because the judgment of God remains unchanging for all unrepentant souls from generation to generation.

Persecutors of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ will not escape the wrath of God except they repent. The train of God’s judgment is coming slowly but surely and it is important for all and sundry to be prepared.

*THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:* Judgment day is coming!

Jesus has taken judgment for those believe His death on the cross paid the price for sin. He was buried and resurrected proving He has power over death and sin.

1 Thessalonians 5:9-10 For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with Him.

Blood Red Pool, Dead Sea, September 2021

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death with tags , , on September 12, 2021 by paulthepoke

Revelation 8:8-9 The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed.

Dead Sea: A pool of water near the Dead Sea has turned blood red. Speculation is running rampant but no definitive answers. Experts from Jordan are currently investigating…

For those who are new to the website, we are not in the Tribulation. This is not the fulfillment of Revelation 8. A massive asteroid did not strike an ocean. A third of sea life was not destroyed. There was not one boat, let alone a ship in the water. This is a pool of red water near the Dead Sea.

However, this event is different. This is a body of water in Jordan near the Promised Land. This is the first time since the phenomena has been followed by the website that the occurrence has taken place near Israel.

This is yet another example of the phenomenon of a blood red body of water. Experts cannot explain it away. It keeps happening. This continues to happen on a small scale. Revelation 8 informs of 1/3 of the sea turning blood red, not a pool near the Dead Sea.

The Appointed Times of the Messiah’s Return Found in Ancient Jewish Festivals… One For Israel Ministry

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Fall Feasts, Prophecy with tags , , , , on September 9, 2021 by paulthepoke

The following is from One For Israel Ministry, a Jewish and Arab ministry who believes that Jesus Christ is the Messiah.

Established in 1990, ONE FOR ISRAEL began as a Bible college and has since expanded to a multi-faceted ministry with the express goal of reaching Israelis with the Good News of Yeshua, training and equipping the Body of Messiah in Israel, and blessing our community with Yeshua’s love.

The story and ministry of ONE FOR ISRAEL is part of something much larger – the miraculous restoration of the Jewish people and the miraculous unity between Jewish and Arab believers in Jesus.

We are seeing not only the physical restoration of Israel after a 2000-year exile, but a spiritual revolution is taking place right in front of our eyes. Jewish people are returning to their God and accepting the Messiah in numbers not seen since the early church! Not only that, but many Arab people are coming to the Lord and many Arab believers are finding a deep unity with their Jewish brothers and sisters.

ONE FOR ISRAEL exists to do ministry within this miracle.

We are Jews and Arabs, together serving Messiah Jesus, sharing the Gospel with Israel and the world, making disciples, training leaders, and blessing our communities in the name of Yeshua.

Could it be that the Fall Biblical festivals celebrated by Jewish people around the world have amazing insight into the Return of our Messiah!? Most Christians are aware that it was on the appointed day of Passover that our Messiah was crucified, some are aware that it was the Biblical feast of First fruits that He was Resurrected and the appointed day of Shavuot 50 that the Holy Spirt was poured out on the church. Dr. Erez Soref dives into the Biblical Appointed days in the fall and uncovers how they celebrate the past deliverance and our Messiah’s return to come!

Yom Teruah/Feast of Trumpets Declared, 5782/2021… BTW, Quakes in Various Places, Acapulco, Mexico

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Fall Feasts, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 8, 2021 by paulthepoke

The new moon has been sighted in the evening of September 8th, 2021. At least we can agree it is officially a new month. What cannot be agreed upon is whether or not it is Rosh Hashanah aka Yom Teruah aka Feast of Trumpets.

The Temple Institute and secular Jews have recognized Rosh Hashanah on September 6th based on their calculations. The modern state of Israel declares this to be their civil New Year and the beginning of their seventh month, Tishri 1.

Brother Mark Harris from http://whenisthenewmoon.com/ have a different understanding. They have proclaimed the new moon to be the sixth month of Elul.

Not that this makes it truth or accuracy, but consensus Judaism has Rosh Hashanah starting September 6th, 2021 on a western Gregorian calendar. Remember, the Gregorian calendar is solar based.

The Hebrew calendar is lunar based. Jews have utilized the following procedure every month for thousands of years. At the end of a lunar cycle, the moon is dark and is not seen for 2-3 days. The new moon can be identified during this 2-3 day period …of that day or hour no one knows…

The month begins at the sighting of the new moon. Two witnesses have to confirm the sighting. Upon agreement, the two witnesses report to the high priest. When the new moon is confirmed, the trumpet (shofar/ram’s horn) is blown.

But God says this regarding His Feast, Yom Teruah…

Numbers 29:1 ‘Now in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall also have a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work. It will be to you a day for blowing trumpets. See also Leviticus 23:23-25

God declares the new year to take place in the spring.

Exodus 12:1-2 Now the Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt,“This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you…”

Victoria Australia, Citizens Must Have the Jab to Participate in the Vaccinated Economy

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on September 7, 2021 by paulthepoke

Victoria, Australia: Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has announced the Australian state is headed towards the edict that citizens must have a COVID-19 vaccination in order to participate in the state’s economic system.

“There is going to be a vaccinated economy, and you get to participate in that if you are vaccinated. We’re going to move to a situation where, to protect the health system, we are going to lock out people who are not vaccinated and can be.”

“The economy, as best it can, will operate as close to normal as possible to people who have had two doses.” -Daniel Andrews, Victorian Premier

For additional analysis and commentary, click the YouTube link.

Victoria is also promoting the idea of “vaccination passports”. This technology will be utilized via Android and Apple smart phones.

“The Victorian Chamber raised the concept of vaccination passports months ago. You only need to look overseas to see that they are likely to be an integral part of our opening up.”

“Vaccination certificates must be integrated with QR code check in as a single system to reduce the impost on business and that technology should be rolled out as soon as such a scheme commences,” Victoria Chamber Chief Executive Paul Guerra.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-09-06/daniel-andrews-vaccine-passport-double-vaccinated/100435606

Australian Jews celebrating Rosh Hashanah in a Melbourne synagogue were fined for violating COVID-19 policies. Approximately 100 worshipers were each fined $5,452 Australian dollars or $4,026 USD.

“I understand this has been a very difficult year for lots of people that can’t go and do the things that they want to do. But if we don’t follow these rules, then we will all have to wait longer to do the things that we want to do. That’s why the rules apply to everybody.” -Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews

Revelation 13:16-18 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.

Is Mark Andrews the antichrist? No

Is the COVID 19 vaccination the mark of the beast? No

One quarter of humanity has not died as noted at the onset of the Tribulation in Revelation 6 (roughly 2 billion people). There is no 3rd Jewish Temple. There are no two witnesses. Another third of humanity has not perished as noted in Revelation 9 (roughly another 2 billion people). The antichrist has not taken out the two witnesses and assumed power. The seal and trumpet judgments have not taken place.

As of September 2021, we are not in the Great 7 Year Tribulation. The context of the mark emerges with the total domination and rule of the antichrist. This takes place during the last 3½ years of the seven year tribulation.

The scope and scale of the mark of the beast is the entire planet. These current events are taking place in the Australian state of Victoria.

But the reality is this. A current political figure is requiring an action of individuals (getting vaccinated) in order to participate in economic affairs. The precedent is being set.

The Bible in Revelation 13 says this day is coming…

And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves… Everyone who is alive at this future time will be faced with this decision.

no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark… This decision will affect one’s ability to engage in commerce (groceries, gas, water, clothes, etc.). Take the mark, short term gain, eternal loss in the lake of fire.

These verses are an appeal to your intellect. Taking the mark is not an emotional response that is made because one has a flutter in their stomach. It is not a gut hunch. Take control and hold mental faculty. Pay attention closely. Carefully think and discern. Have sober purpose. This is a massive decision. It will be the biggest vote of your life. Your eternal destination rides on this choice.

Revelation 14:9-11 Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
