What good comes from bitterness & anger? It not only affects the people you are showing these acts towards, but it holds you back & keeps you from peace & God’s blessings. Being angry & bitter won’t fix anything, but love & forgiveness will. Let go & let God!

Hebrews 12:14-15 Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled.

Romans 12:18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.

Proverbs 3:30 Do not contend with a man for no reason, when he has done you no harm.

Have a grace filled week my friends!!!

Trend Update: UN Emergency Meeting Over Temple Mount Violence, July 2017

Posted in Gaza Strip/Philistia, Prophecy, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 23, 2017 by paulthepoke

Zechariah 12:3 On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples. All who lift it will surely hurt themselves. And all the nations of the earth will gather against it.

The United Nations (UN) has called an emergency meeting for Monday, July 24, 2017. The issue is the violence in Jerusalem surrounding the Temple Mount.

Sweden, France, and Egypt have called for the meeting. The news was given to the world by a tweet. Sweden ambassador to the Security Council Carl Skau made the following statement on Twitter.

Sweden, France & Egypt request #UNSC to urgently discuss how calls for de-escalation in #Jerusalem can be supported.

The Mideast Quartet (United States, European Union, Russia, and United Nations) made the following public statement, “(We) Strongly condemn acts of terror, express their regret for all loss of innocent life caused by the violence, and hope for a speedy recovery to the wounded.”

The Quartet also expressed to “demonstrate maximum restraint, refrain from provocative actions and work towards de-escalating the situation.”

On Tuesday, July 25, 2017, the UN will have their open monthly meeting on the Middle East.

The Muslim population is against the idea of passing through metal detectors to gain access to the Temple Mount. The Muslim population is against the idea of any security measures. This is per a tweet from Khaled Abu Toameh who is a journalist and TV producer.

Across a hashtag #لا_أنصاف_حلول. Jerusalemites profess reject all solutions that promotes occupation through informed rather than portals.

https://twitter.com/qudsn/status/888854207855566849

This same attitude is conveyed in an article in the Times of Israel. The title of the article…Arab MK: ‘Whole Arab world will rise up’ if Israel doesn’t remove metal detectors

http://www.timesofisrael.com/arab-mk-arab-world-will-rise-up-if-israel-doesnt-remove-temple-mt-metal-detectors/

 

July 23, 2017: The Israeli Embassy in Amman, Jordan came under attack. A stabbing of an Israeli security officer was attempted. The terrorist was killed and two others were injured.

July 21, 2017: A Jewish family was attacked during supper on Friday night north of Jerusalem in Halamish. A terrorist entered the home and stabbed three people to death.

Violence between Palestinians and Israelis has occurred south of Jerusalem in Hebron near the Tomb of the Patriarchs.

Clashes continue to occur in East Jerusalem or what we know as the Mount of Olives. A reminder of what the future holds on the Mount of Olives…

Zechariah 14:4 On that day His feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives that lies before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide valley, so that one half of the Mount shall move northward, and the other half southward.

 

A shout out and thanks to https://twitter.com/rapturewatchers. He does an excellent job of keeping up with current events related to prophecy.

Revelation: Sardis…Pay Attention!!!

Posted in Prophecy, Revelation with tags , , , , on July 22, 2017 by paulthepoke

Revelation 3:2 Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God.

Wake up…The word is γρεγορευο/gregoreuo in the Greek. Per Strong’s Concordance it means: to watch; metaphorically, give strict attention to, be cautious, active; to take heed lest through remission and indolence some destructive calamity suddenly overtake one.

…strengthen…This is the word στεριζο/sterizo. It means: to make stable, place firmly, set fast, fix; to strengthen, make firm; to render constant, confirm, one’s mind.

…to die…The idea is αποτηνεσκο/apothnesko. It is defined as: to die of the natural death of man; of the violent death of man or animals; of eternal death, to be subject to eternal misery in hell.

The call is being made to the church. We need to pay attention. We are called to be a military watchmen on an ancient city wall. We are called to have a mental attitude of resolve and physically act on it. Defend and build on what we have. Take care of what has been given to us. Inactivity is not recommended. We should listen to the warning. If we do nothing, dangerous times will come suddenly and quickly. The kind of death is not a pleasant one whether it is physical or spiritual.

 

for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God.

Jesus is making an observation. He has “not found”. Christ has been making a thorough search. He is absolutely checking it out. Here is a list of synonyms or other translations for the Greek word ηευρισκο/heurisko: enquiry, examination, scrutiny, observation, experience, see, learn, discover, understand, recognize, or detect.

The effort by the church at Sardis is compared to the filling of a pot. The idea is to make the pot full to the brim or supply liberally. The local body in Sardis did not fill their pot.

Jesus knows all about giving generously. At a wedding in Cana, He provided wine that was water. Those six pots were filled to the brim.

Luke 2:7 Jesus said to them, “Fill the water pots with water.” So they filled them up to the brim.

 

And for good measure, the church’s effort does not meet the approval of the Father either. As a reminder, Jesus is making this comment at the right hand of the Father in Heaven. The grammar makes an argument that Jesus states this while looking at the Father.

…in the sight of My God.

Rumors are started by those that want to draw attention away from their own darkness. Jealousy & their own misery will make people talk. If you weren’t there & didn’t see it, take what you hear with a grain of salt & don’t repeat it. I could tell someone that I saw so & so talking to so & so at a quick stop & by the time it is told to 10 people…the rumor is I saw them robbing the quick stop & having sex in the get away car. Rumors are ridiculous & can destroy lives. If you are not talking good about someone, don’t talk about them at all.

James 1:26 If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless.

James 4:11-12 Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against his brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law & judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is only one lawgiver & judge, he who is able to save & to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?

Have a rumor free weekend my friends!!!

Trend Update: Russian Troops on Israeli Border Near Golan Heights, July 2017

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 19, 2017 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 39:2 And I will turn you about and drive you forward, and bring you up from the uttermost parts of the north, and lead you against the mountains of Israel.

The prophet Ezekiel is talking to Gog of Magog. Magog is widely considered to be modern day Russia. Russia is the uttermost parts of the north from Israel. The largest peaks and mountains of Israel are located in the Golan Heights.

July 19, 2017: According to Sputnik News out of Russia, Russian troops are essentially on the Israeli and Syrian border. This story is being written from Quneitra, Syria. Russian troops are administering humanitarian aid in the town of Quneitra. Food, basic goods, and medical care and supplies are being distributed.

“Now the situation is much better. Thanks to the Syrian army and Russia for saving us from terrorism,” anonymous elderly Syrian man.

“Now everything is quiet, there is the furthest point [we control] some hundreds meters in front. A militants-controlled settlement follows. There is no communication between us, there are three roads and all of them are blocked. We have left only one small path for the militants, who want to lay down their weapons,” Senior Syrian Officer assisted by Russian officers.

https://sputniknews.com/amp/middleeast/201707191055686805-syrian-golan-heights-ceasefire-russia-us-truce/

This story was first reported as a possibility by the private Israeli intelligence website www.debka.com a couple of days ago. Debka.com is also reporting Russian troops are now in Quneitra. Russia and Syria are promising more aid to the area. Israel had been providing aid to the area because the Quneitra region had been isolated by all the fighting.

The following statistical data is provided by Debka.com. This is what has taken place under “The Good Neighbor” program by Israel. 200,000 Syrian villagers have been receiving aid from Israel.  This includes 80 non-ISIS rebel-controlled villages 15km deep inside the Syrian Golan. In 2016, Israel sent over half a million liters of heavy fuel, 360 tons of foodstuffs, 77 tons of clothing and shoes, tens of generators, a water system, medical treatment including hospital care for the sick, and a field hospital on the border for injured Syrians.

“Where were the Russians all these years when Israel alone helped the beleaguered villages across its border?” IDF Officers.

http://www.debka.com/article/26151/Russia-vies-with-Israel-over-aid-for-Quneitra-

 

A second ceasefire deal is on the negotiating table in Syria. President Trump made this comment during a joint press conference with French President Macron.

“By having some communication and dialogue (with Russia) we were able to have a ceasefire and it’s going to go on very well. Frankly, we are working on a second ceasefire in a very rough part of Syria,” President Donald Trump.

https://sputniknews.com/politics/201707131055521666-syria-ceasefire-trump-russia-us/

 

Time to really pay attention! We are talking about peace! The Apostle Paul warned from roughly 2,000 years ago. Ezekiel warned from 2,600 years ago.

1 Thessalonians 5:2-3 For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

Is this the time the prophets warned a future generation???

Do your homework, your eternal soul is at stake. Jesus Christ may be knocking…

Trend Update: Fatah Declares “Day of Rage”, July 2017

Posted in Gaza Strip/Philistia, Prophecy, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2017 by paulthepoke

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

July 18, 2017: The Palestinian Fatah party is calling for a “Day of Rage”. The reason…metal detectors have been placed to gain access to the Temple Mount. This marks the third day the metal detectors have been in use. Israel has increased security measures in Jerusalem and around the Temple Mount in response to the terrorist shootings and killings that occurred on the Temple Mount.

Violence increased over night in East Jerusalem and the Old City. The combatants threw rocks and Molotov cocktails at the police. Roads were blocked. The Palestinian Red Crescent stated 15 were injured.

Fatah Central Committee Member Jamal Muhaisen has issued the following statement. “What is happening in Jerusalem today is aimed at attacking the al-Aksa Mosque.”

Fatah has declared the metal detectors to be “terrorist procedures”.

http://www.timesofisrael.com/fatah-calls-for-day-of-rage-amid-new-temple-mount-security-in-wake-of-attack/

If I understand the Apostle Paul correctly, there would be no need for metal detectors or laws if people would exhibit characteristics of love.

1 Timothy 1:9 …understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers…
