The Yield Spread, a Sign of Economic Turmoil?…Featuring Michael Douville

Posted in Michael Douville with tags , , on April 20, 2018 by paulthepoke

Deuteronomy 23:19-20 You shall not charge interest to your countrymen: interest on money, food, or anything that may be loaned at interest. You may charge interest to a foreigner, but to your countrymen you shall not charge interest, so that the LORD your God may bless you in all that you undertake in the land which you are about to enter to possess.

Michael

Interest free lending would promote national unity and good will toward your fellow countryman. It is a matter of looking after your neighbor and brother. Financial collaboration would be an outcome. People would be more interested in the success of others.

God does not want us to take financial advantage of our fellow man. These loaning practices were built into society by God. He understands the capacity of greed demonstrated by humanity. Don’t shaft your neighbor.

These financial concepts are nowhere to be seen in today’s economic world. Most people are not aware these statutes exist. Would our lives be economically easier if this were in place today? What a concept, it is a universal blessing from God if one loans interest free to their countryman.

April 2018: The Yield Spread is down to .43, is this a sign of economic turmoil to come? Watch this short video to learn about the Yield Spread, lowest level since 2007. See the video link for Michael’s analysis.

Straight Talk…God’s Glory & Suffering, Rodna Epley

Posted in Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , , , , on April 18, 2018 by paulthepoke

RodnaWe go from suffering to glory, suffering to glory. That’s the process of putting to death the old nature and rising to the new life in Christ.

2 Corinthians 4:10-11 …always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

 

It’s a process that goes from “glory to glory” until we are completely glorified in mind (and I would say body too). We can rest in the knowledge and power of His glory. He is transforming the minds of all who belong to Him. And submit to the process.

2 Corinthians 3:18 And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

 

We should expect suffering to come. But when it comes we should also expect God’s glory. His glory has an eternal weight to far exceed the pain we suffered whenever He glorifies Himself in our situation. It’s like a baby that is born. Labor was intense and we thought we might die. But once we have the baby in our arms, we forget the pain we just went through for the joy we now hold.

2 Corinthians 4:17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison…

1 Peter 4:12-13 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.

 

 

Romans 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be (is about to be) revealed in us.

 

 

 

Trend Update: Trial DNA Splicing Begins…, April 2018

Posted in Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on April 17, 2018 by paulthepoke

Matthew 24:37-39 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. -Jesus

An editorial note on the verses above. The focus is on the word “unaware”.

…they were unaware until the flood came… The emphasis in the Greek is they were clueless. They had no knowledge, no reality, no awareness of what was about to hit them. And this will be the case again before the seven years of tribulation. And this seven-year period will be more intense than the global flood that is being referenced in the verses above.

Matthew 24:21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. -Jesus

April 2018: European law makers have authorized medical scientists to proceed with trial DNA-splicing therapy. Crispr is the biotech company that gets the first crack at altering human genetic code.

China is reported to have already started trials.

The idea is to remove mutated and faulty DNA and replace it. The altered DNA will be replaced by fetal stem cells. The fetal stem cells will be taken and grown outside of the body in a laboratory. Fetal stem cells are used because they have an increased amount of protein in comparison to adult stem cells.

Scientists have also located a gene which reduces the growth of protein in adult stem cells. Their goal is to remove the gene and allow for more protein growth in adult stem cells. This concept will allow for high levels of hemoglobin.

There are multiple levels of genetic manipulation taking place.

Professor Robin Lovell-Badge, Group Leader at London’s Francis Crick Institute, “We will look back and think that this is the real beginning of gene therapy.”

Darren Griffin, Professor of Genetics at the University of Kent, “Everything I have seen suggests it’s very safe and effective. I think the (trial) results will be positive. And then we will be able to say, this is where it all began.”

The scientific treatment is making its way to the United States. The University of Pennsylvania is looking for cancer patients to initiate trials.

The genetic therapy is believed to be a long-term solution for treated patients.

Top 10 Reasons…Thoughts from an American Soldier

Posted in American soldier with tags , , , , on April 16, 2018 by paulthepoke

The following is from an American soldier who has served in the Middle East.

Here’s TEN reasons, I’m always saying: “ISLAM” The RELIGION OF PEACE my A$$…

TOP-10

#1) 18,000 deadly attacks committed explicitly in the name of Islam in just the last ten years. Other religions combined for perhaps a dozen or so.

#2) Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, had people killed for insulting him or for criticizing his religion.  This included women. Muslims are told to emulate the example of Muhammad.

#3) Muhammad said in many places that he has been “ordered by Allah to fight men until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is his messenger.”  In the last nine years of his life, he ordered no less than 65 military campaigns to do exactly that. Muhammad inspired his men to war with the basest of motives, using captured loot, sex, and a gluttonous paradise as incentives.  He beheaded captives, enslaved children, and raped women captured in battle.  Again, Muslims are told to emulate the example of Muhammad.

#4) After Muhammad died, the people who lived with him and knew his religion best immediately fell into war with each other.   Fatima, Muhammad’s favorite daughter, survived the early years among the unbelievers at Mecca safe and sound. Yet, she died of stress from the persecution of fellow Muslims only six months after her father died.  She even miscarried Muhammad’s grandchild after having her ribs broken by the man who became the second caliph. It was this same caliph, Umar, who ordered the death of the first convert to Islam at Medina, an elderly leader who became a close companion to Muhammad and proved his worth in battle.  Sa’d ibn Ubadah was killed after a failed bid to be caliph. Fatima’s husband Ali, who was the second convert to Islam and was raised like a son to Muhammad, fought a civil war against an army raised by Aisha, Muhammad’s favorite wife – and one whom he had said was a “perfect woman.”  10,000 Muslims were killed in a single internal battle waged less than 25 years after Muhammad’s death. Three of the first four Muslim rulers (caliphs) were murdered.  All of them were among Muhammad’s closest companions.  The third caliph was killed by allies of the son of the first (who was murdered by the fifth caliph a few years later, then wrapped in the skin of a dead donkey and burned).  The fourth caliph (Ali) was stabbed to death after a bitter dispute with the fifth.  The fifth caliph went on to poison one of Muhammad’s two favorite grandsons.  The other grandson was later beheaded by the sixth caliph. The infighting and power struggles between Muhammad’s family members, closest companions and their children only intensified with time.  Within 50 short years of Muhammad’s death, even the Kaaba, which had stood for centuries under pagan religion, lay in ruins from internal Muslim war… And that’s just the fate of those within the house of Islam!

#5) Muhammad directed Muslims to wage war on other religions and bring them into submission to Islam.  Within the first few decades following his death, his Arabian companions invaded and conquered Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist and Zoroastrian lands. A mere 25 years after Muhammad’s death, Muslim armies had captured land and people within the modern borders of over 28 countries outside of Saudi Arabia.

#6) Muslims continued their Jihad against other religions for 1400 years, checked only by the ability of non-Muslims to defend themselves.  To this day, not a week goes by that Islamic fundamentalists do not attempt to kill Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists explicitly in the name of Allah.   None of these other religions are at war with each other.

#7) Islam is the only religion that has to retain its membership by formally threatening to kill anyone who leaves.  This is according to the example set by Muhammad.

#8) Islam teaches that non-Muslims are less than fully human.  Muhammad said that Muslims can be put to death for murder, but that a Muslim could never be put to death for killing a non-Muslim.

#9) The Quran never once speaks of Allah’s love for non-Muslims, but there are hundreds of verses that speak of Allah’s cruelty toward and hatred of non-Muslims.

#10) “Allahu Akbar!  Allahu Akbar!  Allahu Akbar!”   (The last words from the cockpit of Flight 93.)

Religion of peace my ass!!!

Revelation: Laodicea, Answer the Door

Posted in Prophecy, Revelation with tags , , on April 15, 2018 by paulthepoke

Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

Behold… Translation: Look, listen, see, pay attention!

 

Jesus Door Knock St Mary Presentation Catholic Church

Saint Mary of the Presentation Catholic Church (Geneva, Indiana)

I stand at the door and knock. Jesus is on the front porch of your place. The grammar in the Greek indicates He has always been there. He has not left and He is not going anywhere. Christ is at the ready. The text states He continually knocks on your door. He has fixed Himself waiting for the individual to respond.

Anyone… The invitation is open to anyone. It is the will of God that all would turn to Him. Please respond to Him. He is beyond tolerant and accommodating.

 

 

 

 

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

 

If anyone hears my voice and opens the door… It is not enough to just listen to Jesus. One needs to respond with action. Let Him into your life and heart. He says He will reciprocate.

 

I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

Christ will have relationship with the individual over a meal. Yes, He will meet you at your place. He will eat with you and you can eat with Him.

 

Matthew 24:33 So also, when you see all these things, you know that He is near, at the very gates.

James 5:9 Do not grumble against one another, brothers, so that you may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing at the door.

At some point, His patience will end. Turn to His mercy, grace, and forgiveness. Answer the door.

Please…

Burden of Damascus??? Trump Orders Strike on Syria, April 2018

Posted in Burden of Damascus, Ezekiel 38-39, Gospel, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 14, 2018 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 17:1 The oracle concerning Damascus. “Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city and will become a fallen ruin.

Jeremiah 49:27 And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall devour the strongholds of Ben-hadad.

April 13, 2018: United States President Donald Trump has ordered a military strike against Syria. In coordination with France and the United Kingdom, precision missiles have been fired at military targets throughout Damascus and the country of Syria. The military intervention is in response to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons against people in his country. This is a developing story…

See video link below for geography and detail of military strikes.

 

The statement below is from Anatoly Antonov, Russian Ambassador to the United States. See the tweet below.

Is this the beginning of the fulfillment of a prophecy written by Isaiah and Jeremiah? If so, Jesus Christ is at the door and He is knocking.

1 Corinthians 3:3-4 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures…

Please search your heart. One way or another, we are running out of time.
