Knesset Approves “Change”, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on June 13, 2021 by paulthepoke

Jerusalem, June 13, 2021: For the first time in 12 years, a divided Knesset approved a government not run by Benjamin Netanyahu. After some drama earlier in the day with Arab Ra’am party leader Mansour Abbas, the vote was cast in favor of the “change bloc”. The final vote tally was 60 for and 59 opposed.

Naftali Bennett is the new Prime Minister of Israel. Politically, many think Bennett is very similar to Netanyahu. He is right of center and right of Netanyahu as head of the New Right Party. Bennett is no nonsense and has a take no prisoners attitude when it comes to parties who wish harm to Israel. He does have a history of controversial comments towards factions of the Palestinians and enemies of Israel. Bennett previously served in Israeli special forces units of Sayeret Matkal (known as The Unit) and Maglan (reconnaissance unit). He recently served as the Defense Minister in 2019-2020. Bennett previously served as Netanyahu’s Chief of Staff from 2006-2008. He also founded and sold a technology company Cyota which specialized in e-fraud. -Wikipedia

For the first time in Israel’s history, an Arab party will have a say in the governance. This is the Ra’am Party headed by Monsour Abbas. He is the power broker of this new government. All eyes are focused on Abbas inside and outside of Israel. Abbas is a dentist by trade. He is opposed to the Abraham Accords. Socially, he is opposed to LGBTQ+ causes and is supportive of conversion therapy. Abbas is set to bring billions to Arab Israeli communities throughout Israel. Shekels are slated for society development, infrastructure, violence and organized crime, and recognition of communities. -Wikipedia

On his way out of power, Benjamin Netanyahu expressed grave concern for the security of Israel. His primary concern is Iran.

“From the moment the US returns to the nuclear deal with Iran, the incoming government won’t approve significant operations in Iran. A government that is not able to forcefully oppose the international community on the pressing issues for our fate is not worthy of leading Israel.” -Benjamin Netanyahu

It would appear the two state solution between the Palestinians and Israel is likely to be back on the table in favor of the Abraham Accords. Time will tell.

This fractured coalition will be tested by foreign adversaries. I suspect not much time will pass. Land for peace is where this is all headed. The question is how soon.

Joel 3:2 I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided up My land..

Israeland they have divided up My land. 

There Shall Be Seven Weeks: Monthly Offerings

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Angels with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 13, 2021 by paulthepoke

Daniel 9:25b …there shall be seven weeks…

The context of this series of posts is the course of the Jewish people for the initial 49 years of the 483 year period communicated from the angel Gabriel to the prophet Daniel. The city of Jerusalem has been rebuilt post exile. These events are covered in Nehemiah 8-13. Israel is returning to God’s Law. The focus is Temple worship service. The Sabbath offering was covered last week. Next, Nehemiah reminds the Jewish people of the Monthly Offering or the New Moons.

New Moons is a phrase and a reminder of a new month. How is a new moon or a new month determined on the Hebrew calendar? God operates on a lunar calendar. Jews have utilized the following procedure every month for thousands of years. It is called Rosh Chodesh which means “head of the month”.

At the end of a lunar cycle, the moon is dark and is not seen for 2-3 days. So, the new moon could be identified during this 2-3 day period …of that day or hour no one knows…

By definition, a new moon is proclaimed when the first little sliver emerges from a darkened moon. It is a tiny crescent that is noted briefly at sunset on the western horizon. 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. Why two witnesses? This concept is part of Jewish law. See Deuteronomy 19:15-21.

Two or more witnesses to the new moon are legally establishing as fact per the law.

Every new moon the following sacrifices are to take place.

Numbers 28:11-15 At the beginning of every month, you are to present to the LORD a burnt offering of two young bulls, one ram, and seven male lambs a year old, all unblemished, along with three-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering with each bull, two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering with the ram, and a tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering with each lamb. This is a burnt offering, a pleasing aroma, an offering made by fire to the LORD.

The elements of animal sacrifice and bread remain from the daily offering to the Sabbath offering to the monthly offering. All animals are unblemished and one year old. More bread is required for larger animals and the amount of flour decreases from the bull (3/10 ephah) to the ram (2/10 ephah) to the lamb (1/10 ephah). An ephah is roughly one bushel or 8 dry gallons or 35 liters or 8 pounds.

The element of fire, symbolic for judgment remains. Grilled meat and baked bread is a pleasing aroma to the LORD.

Numbers 28:14 Their drink offerings shall be half a hin of wine with each bull, a third of a hin with the ram, and a quarter hin with each lamb. This is the monthly burnt offering to be made at each new moon throughout the year.

Wine is required with the sacrifice as well. The bigger the animal, more wine is required. The amount of wine for a bull is 1/2 hin, for the ram 1/3 hin, and for the lamb 1/4 hin. The liquid measurement of a hin is roughly 1.5 U.S. gallons or 5.7 liters.

Numbers 28:15 In addition to the regular burnt offering with its drink offering, one male goat is to be presented to the LORD as a sin offering.

Perfect, spotless animals are sacrificed and burned. Symbolically, judgment has been delivered perpetually. Daily, weekly, and monthly examples are provided as a reminder. Bread and wine are served with these sacrifices. These elements represent perfect sacrifices.

And why are the sacrifices offered? Because of the male goat, a symbol for sin.

Christ is the fulfillment! Got Jesus???

Fisherman Inhaled By Whale

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on June 12, 2021 by paulthepoke

Jonah 2:10 And the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah out upon the dry land.

Yes, the fish “qo” in the Hebrew or spued or vomited out Jonah. Or as stated in the King James Version, “vomiteth“…

Provincetown, Massachusetts: A local lobster fisherman, Michael Packard, was gulped by a humpback whale while collecting lobsters on a routine dive.

As Packard stated, “(I) felt a huge bump and everything went dark. I realized, oh my God, I’m in a whale’s mouth and he’s trying to swallow me. And I thought to myself OK, this is it. I’m finally, I’m gonna die.

“I just got thrown in the air and landed in the water. I was free and I just floated there. I couldn’t believe… I’m here to tell it.”  

May be an image of 1 person, standing and hospital

Packard escaped with only a few bruises and no broken bones. He estimates he was inside of the whale’s mouth for about 30 seconds. He was released from the hospital on the same day.

Packard was rescued by his ship mate Josiah Mayo who witnessed the whale spitting out his captain.

Scientific experts have weighed in on the incident. It is ridiculously rare for a human to be eaten by a whale. Peter Corkeron, a senior scientist at the New England Aquarium says it is a 1 in a 1,000,000,000,000 (trillion) proposition.

Well, we can now report of at least 3 incidents…

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9678057/Lobster-diver-injured-caught-whales-mouth.html

Jesus confirms the reality of a fish swallowing a man whole and living to tell about it. As far as Christ is concerned, this is a historical fact.

Matthew 12:39-40 But he answered them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

And the critic asks, “How can a man survive three days and three nights inside of a fish or whale?”

God provides. There was plenty of provision and chum inside the stomach of the creature. It may not have been five star dining, but there was likely piles of food for Jonah as well as the host fish or whale.

To the critic, deal with it. It happened…

Jonah 1:17 And the LORD appointed a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.

Tragic End… Joshua of Ghana

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Joshua Ghana with tags , , , on June 10, 2021 by paulthepoke

TEXT: Job 24:14-25

Key Verse: Job 24:24 “They are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low; they are taken out of the way as all other, and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.”

Experiences in life differ from person to person. Sometimes, those who seem to be faring better are those least expected. This is more so when the best things in life seem to be happening to people we consider to be undeserving of God’s favor and mercy. What many lose sight of is that irrespective of how successful a sinner is on earth, if he does not repent, he will meet with an ignoble end.

Job’s friends had concluded that the enormity of the suffering and pain he was experiencing could only be because he was a great sinner. In his response, Job did not dispute that God reserves harsh punishment for the sinner. In seeking to show himself as undeserving of their negative characterization as a sinner, he outlined what a wicked man looks like. He likened such a person to a murderer who takes the poor and needy unawares and kills them. He is like an adulterer who disguises himself and commits immorality under the cover of darkness. He said such a wicked person goes to any length to device his evil acts and cover up his tracks.

But in the end, he is consumed by drought and heat. He is broken, forgotten and eaten by worms in the grave. Though exalted, he is soon cut down, withered and cast off with no remembrance any more. He obviously considered that he was not like the person he had been describing and therefore, wondered who could successfully contradict what he had said.

Sometimes, God allows such experiences to draw our attention to the fact that sin will always be judged and the outcome will be fearful and fiery. It is therefore necessary for the sinner to retrace his steps, turn from his life of indulgence and evil, and follow Christ without wavering. Otherwise, he is courting unmitigated disaster.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: No sinner can escape the long arms of heaven’s law.

The Bible IN ONE YEAR: I Corinthians 5 – 7

There Shall Be Seven Weeks: Sabbath Offerings

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Angels with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 6, 2021 by paulthepoke

Daniel 9:25b …there shall be seven weeks…

The context of this series of posts is the course of the Jewish people for the initial 49 years of the 483 year period communicated from the angel Gabriel to the prophet Daniel. The city of Jerusalem has been rebuilt post exile. These events are covered in Nehemiah 8-13. Israel is returning to God’s Law. The focus is Temple worship service. The grain offering has been reviewed. Next, Nehemiah reminds the Jewish people of the Sabbath Offering.

Nehemiah 10:33b …the Sabbaths…

The concept of the Sabbath has its roots in the creation week. The Sabbath is “barak” in the Hebrew or blessed. This day is set apart and clean. Even God rested. He set the precedent. He was not tired. God blessed the seventh day.

Genesis 2:2-3 By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

~

The Sabbath offering is a bit different than the daily offering.

In both cases, two male lambs without blemish are sacrificed.

What is different is the amount of flour. The daily offering has 1/10 of an ephah. The Sabbath offering has 2/10 of an ephah. As a reminder, an ephah is roughly one bushel or 8 dry gallons or 35 liters or 8 pounds. Multiply x .2. We are looking at 1.6 gallons or pounds or 7 liters of flour.

There is a progression of the amount of flour from the daily offering to the Sabbath offering to the monthly offering. The daily offering has 1/10 of an ephah. The Sabbath offering has 2/10. And the monthly offering has multiple recipes pending the sacrifice being offered. In the case of the monthly offering, more fine flour is offered.

The fine flour is mixed with an amount of oil that is not defined.

There is also an undefined amount of wine as well.

The text is clear with a reminder. The daily offering is different than the Sabbath offering.

Numbers 28:9-10 On the Sabbath day, two male lambs a year old without blemish, and two tenths of an ephah of fine flour for a grain offering, mixed with oil, and its drink offering: this is the burnt offering of every Sabbath, besides the regular burnt offering and its drink offering.

~

The Sabbath is unique in that it was created and written before the law. Its foundation is in the creation week. The Sabbath was instituted before the Mosaic Law. If anything the Sabbath law in the 10 Commandments is a reminder.

Exodus 20:8-11 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

Fast forward roughly 1,440 years from Moses receiving the law on Mount Sinai to Jesus. The context of the discussion is a wheat field with the disciples and the religious leaders on the Sabbath.

Mark 2:27-28 And He (Jesus) said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is lord even of the Sabbath.”

See also Matthew 12:8, Luke 6:5.

Jesus is the author of the law as given to Moses. The Sabbath was created for man to rest. Jesus fulfilled the law. It is good for us to rest in Him.

Christ is the Creator. Jesus is greater than traditions of men or the Sanhedrin in this context.

John 1:3 All things were made through Him, and without Him was not any thing made that was made.

As believers in Christ we have our Sabbath in Him because of His death, burial, and resurrection.

“Change Government” In, Netanyahu Out???

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 2, 2021 by paulthepoke

Leviticus 19:15 You shall do no injustice in court. You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor.

At literally the last hour, Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid informed Israeli President Reuven Rivlin he has formed an 8 party coalition to establish a government. The coalition has 61 seats in the 120 member Knesset for a majority.

The parties include: Yesh Atid, Blue and White, Yisrael Beytenu, Yamina, New Hope, Labor, Meretz, and Ra’am.

Yair Lapid and Yamina chief Naftali Bennett will alternate as Prime Minister. Bennett will be the first prime minister until September 2023. Then Lapid would serve as the prime minister until November 2025 under the agreement.

All of this was made possible by Ra’am Islamist leader Mansour Abbas. This would be the first time a majority Arab party would be a part of a leading coalition in Israeli government.

Per the Times of Israel, Ra’am was promised NIS 53 billion ($16.3 billion) for Arab society development. In addition, another NIS 2.5 million ($770,000) to fight violence and organized crime in Arab society. Plus, another NIS 20 million ($6 million) will be invested over the next 10 years to fix crumbling infrastructure in Arab cities and towns. Also, three Bedouin unrecognized villages, Abda, Khashm al-Zena, and Rakhma, are set to be legalized in a government decision.

This is the leadership agreement.

  1. Yair Lapid, Foreign Minister for the first two years of the government
  2. Blue and White leader Benny Gantz, Defense Minister
  3. Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman, Treasury
  4. New Hope leader Gideon Sa’ar, Justice Minister
  5. Yamina’s Ayelet Shaked, Interior Minister
  6. Labor’s Merav Michaeli, Transportation Portfolio
  7. Labor’s Omer Barlev, Public Security Minister
  8. Meretz leader Nitzan Horowitz, Health Minister
  9. Meretz Tamar Zandberg, Environmental Protection Minister
  10. Meretz Arab Issawi Frej, Regional Cooperation Minister

All of this has to be ratified by a vote in the Knesset in about 12 days. This would set up a vote on approximately June 14th, 2021.

The coalition stated, “We will do everything to unite Israeli society.”

https://www.timesofisrael.com/liveblog_entry/document-signed-by-8-parties-in-intended-new-government/

12 days is an eternity to get this signed. You know Benjamin Netanyahu is not going down without a fight.

By the way, earlier in the day, Isaac Herzog was voted in to become Israel’s 11th president.

Clear as mud…

Memorial Day, 2021… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly with tags , , , , , , on May 31, 2021 by paulthepoke

Please take the time to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Please take the time to give gratitude to our active duty military personnel who protect our freedom. Enjoy time with your family and friends during this Memorial Day Holiday weekend.

The older I get the more I realize that family is everything. I regret time not spent with them. Cousins were my first best friends & are the ones that will always have my back. There’s a special bond & love in family that honestly can’t be duplicated. Family is love!

Tomorrow is never guaranteed, so don’t live like it is. Live each day as if it’s your last. Choose to spend your time wisely, doing what’s good & loving others. God gave us this life for a purpose, live with that purpose.

1 Corinthians 13:7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Ephesians 5:16 Make the best use of time, because the days are evil.

James 4:14 Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time & then vanishes.

~

Let us not forget the freedom we have in Jesus. He sacrificed Himself for all of humanity.

Galatians 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree.”

Have a purpose filled Memorial Day Weekend my friends!!!

There Shall Be Seven Weeks: Burnt Offering

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Angels with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 30, 2021 by paulthepoke

Daniel 9:25b …there shall be seven weeks…

Resuming the series…

The context of this series of posts is the course of the Jewish people for the initial 49 years of the 483 year period communicated from the angel Gabriel to the prophet Daniel. The city of Jerusalem has been rebuilt post exile. These events are covered in Nehemiah 8-13. Israel is returning to God’s Law. The focus is Temple worship service. The showbread or shewbread was the first topic. Up next is the grain offering.

Nehemiah 10:33b …the regular grain offering and burnt offerings…

The focus of this section of Temple worship service is the daily sacrifices. Nehemiah is effectively going to review Numbers 28. This is the source of origin from God Himself to Moses.

Numbers 28:3 And you shall say to them, This is the food offering that you shall offer to the LORD: two male lambs a year old without blemish, day by day, as a regular offering.

God says there are to be two sacrifices a day, one in the morning and one at twilight. Two perfect lambs are sacrificed and roasted every day.

Numbers 28:4 The one lamb you shall offer in the morning, and the other lamb you shall offer at twilight;

Then, God gives a recipe for how to make bread.

Numbers 28:5 …also a tenth of an ephah of fine flour for a grain offering, mixed with a quarter of a hin of beaten oil.

An ephah is roughly one bushel or 8 dry gallons or 35 liters or 8 pounds. Multiply x .1. We are talking a little less than a gallon or 3.5 liters.

Beaten oil is from pressed olives. The liquid measurement of a hin is roughly 1.5 U.S. gallons or 5.7 liters. Multiply x .25. This is about .375 gallons or 1.425 liters.

~

Lastly, God requests a “strong drink“. This would indicate fermentation or alcohol. The Hebrew word shekar is associated with drunkards in the Old Testament.

Numbers 28:7 Its drink offering shall be a quarter of a hin for each lamb. In the Holy Place you shall pour out a drink offering of strong drink to the LORD.

God states a quarter of a hin of likely wine for each lamb. A quarter of a hin or .375 gallons or 1.425 liters x2 = .75 gallons or 2.85 liters in total.

Numbers 28:8 The other lamb you shall offer at twilight. Like the grain offering of the morning, and like its drink offering, you shall offer it as a food offering, with a pleasing aroma to the LORD.

A lamb is sacrificed and burned. Symbolically, judgment has been delivered perpetually. In conjunction, bread and wine are served. These are the elements for what we know as communion. And the Lord is pleased with this sacrifice.

1 Corinthians 11:23-26 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night He was betrayed, took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same way, after supper He took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.
