Faith in God is everything! Maybe because we lose faith in others, it makes us question our faith in God. We must have faith that He’s hearing our prayers. We must have faith that He will guide us. We must have faith in His timing. All God truly wants is complete faith from us. That faith will change your life.

2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.

Matthew 21:22 And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

Have a believing weekend my friends!!!

Trend Update: Temple Infrastructure Build, June 2017

Posted in Prophecy, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 28, 2017 by paulthepoke

The Israeli government is on board for the construction of the third Temple. The building of the third Jewish Temple is no longer a fringe idea. The government is looking to facilitate the necessary infrastructure to allow for millions of Jews to travel to the Temple as required by the Mosaic Law three times per year.

The men are required to make their presentation and sacrifice before God at the Temple.

Exodus 23:14-17 Three times a year you shall celebrate a feast to Me. You shall observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread; for seven days you are to eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, at the appointed time in the month Abib, for in it you came out of Egypt. And none shall appear before Me empty-handed. Also you shall observe the Feast of the Harvest of the first fruits of your labors from what you sow in the field; also the Feast of the Ingathering at the end of the year when you gather in the fruit of your labors from the field. Three times a year all your males shall appear before the Lord God…

Deuteronomy 16:16 “Three times in a year all your males shall appear before the Lord your God in the place which He chooses, at the Feast of Unleavened Bread and at the Feast of Weeks and at the Feast of Booths, and they shall not appear before the Lord empty-handed…

Government officials are anticipating the building of the third Jewish Temple. They are making preparations for the incoming millions making the road trip to Jerusalem.

A high speed train from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is currently under construction. The last stop in Jerusalem will be at the Western Wall.

Jerusalem light rail

 

A cable car system is being planned in Jerusalem. This has been approved by the Israeli government.

“We need to establish express service bus transportation to the Temple Mount from all parts of the country. The Temple Mount Express bus lines will have special blue and white bus stops enabling Jews to regularly travel directly to the Temple Mount, pray and return home.” -Yaakov Hayman, Chairman of the Friends of the Temple Organization

More hotels are required along with improvements to current lodging in the Jerusalem metropolitan. Discussions regarding improved wider roads are noted. Utility infrastructure is a necessary upgrade.

Israel bridge“We expect millions of Jews coming to the Temple Mount even before the Temple is built, so transportation is a potential bottleneck. We need to open up more entrances to the Temple Mount, since there is currently only one entrance available to the Jews.”  -Yaakov Hayman

Trend Update: Yellowstone Tremors, June 2017

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on June 27, 2017 by paulthepoke

 

Psalm 46:6 The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered; He raised His voice, the earth melted.

Significant seismic activity is a characteristic of the end time scenario. The activity in Yellowstone Park is not.

June 2017: A swarm of earthquakes has recently hit the Yellowstone super caldera in Wyoming. Depending on various reports, up to 800 quakes have taken place. The largest reported tremor was 4.5 magnitude on the Richter Scale. The series of events was noted as “green” by the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

https://www.forbes.com/sites/trevornace/2017/06/26/scientists-confirm-yellowstone-supervolcano-was-hit-by-a-450-earthquakes-in-one-week/#512d67b93e87

Predictably, the experts state that Yellowstone is not in danger of a massive eruption. However, the US government is taking the following precautions??? Caution, conspiracy theories are alive and well!

Allegedly, NASA has launched its Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) to monitor the Yellowstone Caldera. At the least, SOFIA has been seen flying over the area.

sofia

The following description is per NASA. Built into a converted Boeing 747SP, SOFIA’s 2.5-meter (8.2-foot)-diameter telescope will make it the world’s largest and most sensitive airborne observatory. Flying at 39,000 to 45,000 feet, it will enable scientific observations that are impossible for even the largest and highest of Earth-based telescopes. Peering out through an open cavity in the side of the aircraft, the telescope will allow astronomers to obtain sharper infrared images than ever before. The astronomers, technicians, engineers, educators, and flight crew will work in a comfortable airliner environment during a typical eight-to-nine-hour flight.

One conspiracy theory has the United States offering billions of dollars to other countries for relocation of citizens in case of a massive event. The plan reportedly has US citizens being sent to Australia, Brazil, and Argentina. The relocation plan allegedly was signed, sealed, and delivered in 2014.

Do your own homework and verify.

Trend Update: Ramadan Peace Conference in Istanbul, June 2017

Posted in Peace Plan, Prophecy, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on June 26, 2017 by paulthepoke

Matthew 24:15 “Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand)…” –Jesus

Let me re-introduce Adnan Oktar. He is an Islamic scholar and a peace activist. Adnan Oktar openly speaks against anti-Semitism on his TV program in Turkey.  He calls for Abraham’s children to come together. He has publically stated Muslims will build the Jewish Temple along with Solomon’s palace. Oktar states the Temple will be rebuilt when global peace and tranquility are at hand.

June 14, 2017: Adnan Oktar hosted a Ramadan celebration in Istanbul, Turkey. Peoples of different culture and religions were invited.

oktar

Guests included Jewish rabbis; Christian priests; politicians; members of the Turkish Assyrian, Armenian, Jewish, Greek Orthodox and Catholic communities; Jaffari, Alawite and Bekhtashi communities; orders of the Nakshibendi and the Kadiri; followers of the Treatise of Light (Nur), and National Vision Movement (Milli Görüş).

The idea was to come together in an atmosphere of love and peace.

“People are more religious in Israel, that is a blessing for the entire region and the Islamic world. They are not aware that Jews are people of love. We all will be students of the King Moshiach, the King Messiah. The love for Moshiach brings blessings to Israel, this is a vital matter. God protects Israel from all troubles. If anyone attempts any harm against Israel, we will bring heavens down on them. God promised you to live on that land. You are a blessing for Muslims, but they can’t appreciate this,” Adnan Oktar.

Rabbi Yehuda Glick of the Israeli Knesset made the road trip to Istanbul. He offered kind words for the gathering hosted by Oktar.

“My dear friend, honorary Mr. Adnan Oktar, champion of religious tolerance, champion of love to all human beings, champion of God in the world…” -Yehuda Glick

http://www.israeltoday.co.il/NewsItem/tabid/178/nid/31805/Default.aspx

 

Currently, the world is in conflict and escalating towards more military intervention on a greater scale. Humanity is not trending toward peace.

Let me be clear. I am not suggesting Adnan Oktar is the antichrist or the false prophet. But I am suggesting that any man who comes in peace is one to monitor closely. Somebody will emerge from this global mess and appear to have an answer for world peace.

After all, he seems reasonable. He seems like someone we can work with…

1 Thessalonians 5:3 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.

Nobody is better than you & you are not better than anyone else. God created us all equal. I’ve hung out with millionaires & sat & visited with the homeless. We’ve all got a story & our book isn’t finished yet. We can’t be sure why anyone is where they are in life, but I know God wants to bless us all & He isn’t partial to one over the other.

Your race, political views, religion, or sexual preference don’t mean much to me. How you treat others does. Don’t be a crappy or hateful person. Choose to be kind & loving…

See the good in everyone.

Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male & female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Have a great week my friends!!!

Revelation: Sardis, Seven Aspects of the Spirit

Posted in Isaiah, Prophecy, Revelation with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 25, 2017 by paulthepoke

Revelation 3:1 “To the angel of the church in Sardis write: He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars, says this: 

The Bible is clear. The grammar and syntax in reference to the “Spirit” are singular. There is one Spirit of God with seven aspects or characteristics.

Isaiah 11:2 defines the seven aspects of the Spirit. This is the character of the Holy Spirit.

Isaiah 11:2 The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him,
The spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The spirit of counsel and strength,
The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.

These are the aspects of the Spirit: 1) The Lord, 2) wisdom, 3) understanding, 4) counsel, 5) strength, 6) knowledge, and 7) fear of the Lord.

The Spirit of the Lord…The Hebrew word for Lord is YHWH. The Spirit of YHWH. Scholars refer to this as the Tetragrammaton, Greek for four letters. This is the proper name of the Hebrew God of the Bible. The correct spelling is YHWH. Note there are no vowels in this term. Vowels from the name Adonai were substituted and the term Yahweh emerged. Jehovah is a word that has been translated to English from the Hebrew, Yahweh. The name for Lord is Jehovah. It means The Existing One. This name is so sacred, Jews refuse to pronounce it. His name is a statement of existence.

Wisdom…The Hebrew word is chokmah. It means: skill (in war); wisdom (in administration); shrewdness; prudence (in religious affairs); wisdom (ethical and religious). This about the application of knowledge.

Understanding…The Hebrew word is biynah. It means: understanding, discernment; act; faculty; object; personified.

Counsel…The Hebrew word is `etsah. It means: counsel, advice, purpose, consult.

Strength…The Hebrew word is ga buwrah. It means: might; valour, bravery; mighty deeds (of God).

Knowledge…The Hebrew word is da`ath. It means: perception, skill; discernment, understanding.

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

In this verse, the Hebrew word for “fear” is yir’ah. It can be translated: fear, terror, fearing, awesome or terrifying thing (object causing fear); fear (of God); respect, reverence, piety, revered. -Strong’s Concordance.

The term yara’ (noted in Proverbs 1:7 and Isaiah 8:12) is the common word for fear in the Old Testament and has a basic three-fold range of meanings: 1) “dread; terror” (Deuteronomy 1:29, Jonah 1:10), 2) “to stand in awe” (I Kings 3:28), 3) “to revere; to respect” (Leviticus 19:3). With the Lord as the object, it captures the polar opposites of shrinking back in fear and drawing close in awe and adoration (NET Bible notes).

The seven aspects or characteristics of the Spirit.

Trend Update: Russia Issues Red Line, June 2017

Posted in Euphrates River, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on June 20, 2017 by paulthepoke

Genesis 2:14 The name of the third river is Tigris; it flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.

Humanity began in the Garden of Eden and one of the four rivers mentioned was the Euphrates. Thousands of years later, the Euphrates River is still relevant. What once was a garden is now a desolate battlefield.

June 19, 2017: The backlash from the downing of Syrian SU 22 fighter jet has begun. Russia has literally drawn a line in the sand in the Middle East. The line is the Euphrates River.

“Any aircraft, including planes and drones belonging to the international coalition operating west of the Euphrates River, will be tracked by Russian anti-aircraft forces in the sky and on the ground and treated as targets.” Russian Defense Ministry

Russia has effectively declared a no fly zone from the Euphrates River west to the Mediterranean Sea.

Russia has also suspended communication with United States over the downing of their Russian made plane in Syria.

Russia disputes the United States attempted contact before shooting down the Syrian SU 22 fighter jet. The United States has indicated they attempted to contact the Russians but they did not answer the phone.

The location of the Syrian pilot is unknown. He is reported to have ejected over ISIS held territory.

The Syrian Army has told the United States there will be “dangerous repercussions” for their actions.

lavrov

“As for what is happening ‘on the ground’ in Syria, we proceed from the assumption that it is necessary to fully respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity in Syria. Therefore, any actions ‘on the ground,’ and there are many participants there, including those who carry out military operations, should be coordinated with Damascus.” Sergei Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister

Something is going to give.

“The era of dogfighting is largely over. After the totally lopsided kill-to-loss ratio attained by the US Air Force and US Navy during the First Gulf War (in 1991), it is a very rare thing for regimes under attack by the US and its allies to send fighters up in defense — since they know how it will end.” Justin Bronk of the Royal United Services Institute.

Trend Update: Jared Kushner to Negotiate Middle East Peace, June 2017

Posted in Antichrist/Beast, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on June 19, 2017 by paulthepoke

Daniel 9:27 “And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.”

Now somebody is going to negotiate a peace plan. Is Jared Kushner “The Man”??? Time will tell. Jared Kushner is a man of intrigue, interest, and speculation.

Kushner is President Trump’s son in law and go to guy for Middle East Peace. He is set to arrive in the Middle East on Wednesday.

Kushner will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem. Then he will meet with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.

“President Trump has made it clear that working toward achieving a lasting peace agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians is a top priority for him. He strongly believes that peace is possible.” -White House Official.

Trend Upate: Locust Plague in Syria, June 2017

Posted in Burden of Damascus, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on June 19, 2017 by paulthepoke

Joel 1:4 What the gnawing locust has left, the swarming locust has eaten;
and what the swarming locust has left, the creeping locust has eaten;
and what the creeping locust has left, the stripping locust has eaten.

Granted the context of Joel 1 is the land of Israel. The prophet does offer a glimpse into the future. There are an estimated 80-90 species of locusts in the Middle East per Wycliffe Bible Commentary. The insect is hungry at every stage of development from larvae to worm to locust. Locust plagues can devour everything in sight to the point where the land is laid bare.

June 2017: To add insult to injury in Syria, a plague of locusts has emerged and is spreading.

“Locusts killed about 60% of the agricultural crops in Idlib province, mostly in the Shahshbo Mountain. We noticed the spread of this scourge in 2016, but we were unable to contain it because of the directorate’s lack of the necessary tools, equipment and pesticides, and this caused the spread of more locusts this year. Even al-Rouj plain, al-Jabal al-Wastani and the Harim Mountains have been affected in Idlib.” Khaled al-Hassan, Director of the Idlib Agricultural Directorate

“The spread of this pest is the result of what happened in 2016, when our agricultural harvest in Idlib was significantly affected, and locusts also spread, with a large portion of wheat, barley and olive crops being destroyed. The problem was not addressed by the Idlib Agricultural Directorate until late in the year, after locusts had laid their eggs, causing a wider spread of the insect this year.”  Mohammad Salam, Farmer

“The town of Kfar Derian suffered from swarms of locusts that in February started to eat the agricultural crops for which the town is known. Wheat, barley, vegetables and fruit trees, such as olives and figs, were among the damaged crops, which barely yielded 30% of what they usually produce.” Hossam Mahalli, Director of the Agriculture Office, Kfar Derian Council

http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2017/06/syria-war-idlib-agriculture-grasshopper-scourge.html#ixzz4kDakkC2e

locust buffet

Locusts can be eaten. The heads, legs, and wings are removed. Locusts can be boiled, stewed, roasted, or dressed with butter. They can be eaten fresh, dried, or salted. Leviticus 11:22 tells us locusts are kosher.

Leviticus 11:22 These of them you may eat: the locust in its kinds, and the devastating locust in its kinds, and the cricket in its kinds, and the grasshopper in its kinds.

The prophet Joel promises a time when there will be no food in Israel. The land will be stripped of its resources by locusts. The only thing left to eat will be locusts. Consider the implications and benefits of locusts.

Locusts: 1) high in protein; 2) protect the human body against the harmful effects of radiation; 3) suppress the growth of cancer cells; 4) prevents the development of heart attack and stroke by boosting the effect of blood-thinning drugs; 5) increases immunity levels; 6) helps control cholesterol levels; 7) combat inflammatory processes; 8) enhances regeneration of tissues.

Is there a hint of the prophetic future with benefits of a locust diet? Fights the effects of radiation? Suppresses cancer? Enhances tissue regeneration? Increases immunity?

Sounds like an antidote to nuclear exposure and disease to me.

Trend Update: US F18 Shoots Down Syrian Fighter Jet, June 2017

Posted in Burden of Damascus, Euphrates River, Ezekiel 38-39, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 18, 2017 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.”

Isaiah 17:9 In that day their strong cities will be like forsaken places in the forest, or like branches which they abandoned before the sons of Israel; and the land will be a desolation. 

We are watching this happen. There is fighting in every nook and cranny of Syria.

June 18, 2017: A United States F 18 Super Hornet has shot down a pro Assad Syrian SU 22. This marks the first time an American jet has shot down a Syrian government jet in the recent conflict. Tensions in the area have escalated.

The event took place near Tabqa, Syria near the Euphrates/Tabqa Dam on the Euphrates River. The Pentagon reports the Syrian SU 22 bombed US supported forces near Tabqa. The US has stated it acted in “collective self-defense of coalition partnered forces”.

Before the Syrian plane was shot down, the coalition “contacted its Russian counterparts by telephone via an established ‘de-confliction line’ to de-escalate the situation and stop the firing.” Pentagon statement.

“The coalition’s mission is to defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria. The coalition does not seek to fight Syrian regime, Russian or pro-regime forces partnered with them, but will not hesitate to defend coalition or partner forces from any threat.” -Pentagon Spokesman

This area near Tabqa was recently held by ISIS. US backed Kurdish forces have removed ISIS from the area. Kurdish forces are primarily Sunni Muslims and backed by the United States.

To the west a few miles, Syrian government forces of the Assad regime have removed ISIS from their area. Syrian government forces are Shia Muslims and they are supported by the Russians.

As ISIS has been removed from the area in Syria, Kurdish Sunni forces and Assad’s Shia forces are clashing.  The two Muslim forces are proxies for both the United States and Russia.

Clashes are emerging in areas across Syria due to the removal of ISIS. Struggle for power of the lands is occurring. Different groups of people want to rule the land where ISIS previously held control. Most of these fights are occurring across Shia and Sunni lines.
