Preview: God’s Spring Appointed Holidays 5780/2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gospel, Spring Feasts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 29, 2020 by paulthepoke

There are seven God appointed holidays communicated through the Old Testament Law. The first three spring holidays were fulfilled on the appointed holiday by Jesus Himself. The names of the feasts are: Passover, Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits.

In the Hebrew year 5780 or the Gregorian calendar year of 2020, the holidays occur as follows. Passover essentially begins at sunset on Wednesday, April 8 on a western calendar. The first day of Unleavened Bread is the next day at sunset on Thursday, April 9. Lastly, the feast of First Fruits starts at sunset on Friday, April 10. The holidays culminate and end at sunset on Thursday, April 16.

Please note, there is not consensus on these dates within various studies of Judaism and Jewish Messianic believers in Yeshua or Jesus Christ. When in doubt, search for the new moon and full moon. Humanity struggles to keep time as God has directed.

The first of God’s holidays is Passover or Pesach in the Hebrew. The holiday begins on the 14th day of the Hebrew month Nisan (March or April on a Gregorian calendar). There is a play on words in the original Hebrew. A “pesach” is an unblemished lamb which was required for the sacrifice. After the “pesach” was sacrificed, the blood was to be smeared on the wooden posts of the house. When God saw the blood on the door posts, He passed over or “pasach” and the house was spared judgment.

The original directions for the Passover were given to Moses and Aaron in Egypt. The statute and happenings are noted in Exodus 12. God defines the purpose of the holiday to Israel. 

Exodus 12:26-27a “And when your children say to you, ‘What does this rite mean to you?’ you shall say, ‘It is a Passover sacrifice to the LORD who passed over the houses of the sons of Israel in Egypt when He smote the Egyptians, but spared our homes.’”

~

The second of God’s holidays is Unleavened Bread or Chag haMatazt in the Hebrew. The holiday begins on the 15th of Nisan and runs for seven days.

The directions of Unleavened Bread are noted in Exodus 12:15-20. The focus of the week is to live a life without leaven, the symbol for sin. Leaven is not to be in the house. Leaven products are not to be consumed. Bread without yeast, matzah, is to be eaten.

~

The third of God’s holidays is First Fruits or Reshit Katzir in the Hebrew. The one day holiday begins on the day after the Sabbath or Sunday on our calendar.

The directions for First Fruits are noted in Leviticus 23:9-14. The priest is to make a barley offering of the first portion of the harvest to the Lord. The priest intervenes of behalf of the people. The reality of the holiday for the people of Israel is this. The people bring their grain sheaf to the priest. They are to sacrifice a lamb without blemish. The offering is also to be presented with bread and wine.

A Call for a Temporary World Government, March 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Antichrist/Beast, Prophecy with tags , , , , on March 28, 2020 by paulthepoke

1 John 4:3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.

March 28, 2020: Gordon Brown is a former British Prime Minister. He served from 2007-2010. Mr. Brown has concerns with the current Coronavirus COVID 19 pandemic and the resulting global economic hardships. He is calling for a temporary world government to address the issues.

Brown wants to discuss the idea next week with the teleconference of the G20. He also would like to involve the United Nations.

Here are some quotes from Gordon Brown.

“This is not something that can be dealt with in one country. There has to be a coordinated global response.”

“We need some sort of working executive. If I were doing it again, I would make the G20 a broader organization because in the current circumstances you need to listen to the countries that are most affected, the countries that are making a difference and countries where there is the potential for a massive number of people to be affected – such as those in Africa.”

Let me be absolutely crystal clear. I am not stating Gordon Brown is the antichrist. The way is being paved. The idea of a one world leader is emerging on the global stage. We are trending in his direction. The world is looking for someone, the wrong guy, to solve its problems.

We are not in the seven year tribulation or Daniel’s 70th week. See Gabriel’s message in Daniel 9. Still waiting on somebody with a bow to go forth on a white horse, who will be given a crown, and overcoming and conquering (Revelation 6).

But, we are trending and we have someone calling for a world executive.

1 John 2:8 Children, it is the last hour; and just as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have appeared. This is how we know it is the last hour.

Our Friend Bunny… Christine McDonald

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Christine "Clarity" McDonald with tags , , , , , on March 28, 2020 by paulthepoke

CeeCee and I were the same age. From time to time, we looked out for each other on the corner of Gladstone Boulevard and Independence Avenue. We would often hang together in between dates, neither of us having a place to call home or a place to go inside, away from the elements. Once, we were arrested in a sting and transported together to the police station.

CeeCee had been in California for years working the streets of L.A., but she bounced back and forth to Kansas City, as that is where her family lived. She hoped that one day her family could look beyond the shame they felt for her prostitution. She longed for reconciliation with them.

At one point, CeeCee and I were in prison together, so we put our names on the list to be cellmates. Soon we were sharing a cell in an old prison that had crank windows we were allowed to open. And there was grass we were allowed to walk on. It was great.

Most other prisons wouldn’t allow you to open windows or walk on the grass. In fact, it was a conduct violation to walk on the grass, and the windows—well, they didn’t open.

One day, when the grass was being cut, the yard crew discovered some baby bunnies. The bunnies were a ray of hope to so many women in prison, many with families or hopes for families, many who had children who had been taken from them, many with families that had, like CeeCee’s, disconnected from them due to their incarceration and the shame it brought on the family. The bunnies somehow filled in the wells of hurt and loneliness. They gave us the connection of something to love and to care for.

CeeCee and I chose to adopt one. We had other girls who worked in the chow hall steal food for us. We cleaned out a metal footlocker and lined it with an old towel and grass we’d picked. At night when we were on lockdown, we would take out our bunny (which we had named simply “Bunny”) and hold it. During the day, we would go out to what we called Blubber Beach. It was where we girls could touch the grass and lie and bake in the sun—still in our prison–gray uniforms, but nevertheless enjoying the grass and the warmth of the sun. When we were there, we would take Bunny out. We stashed him between our breasts to get him out of the housing units. We would lie in the grass and watch Bunny enjoy it with us.

Soon, however, Bunny got bigger and needed to get out of the little locker we had made his home. At first, we had put a rolled–up towel across the floor at the door of the cell to insure that Bunny didn’t make it underneath. But as Bunny got bigger, it grew harder to keep him a secret.

CeeCee and I took turns. We worked different shifts in the prison, so it was easy for us to keep our soft, furry friend to ourselves. But Bunny grew, as all babies do, and we could no longer hide him in our bras to go outdoors. As time went on, we were leaving Bunny out to explore our prison cell more frequently. So the word got out that we had a pet baby rabbit in the state penitentiary, one we had kept and had taken care of for a couple of months. One of the girls told a white shirt, and our housing unit was put on lockdown. The white shirt came to our cell after the unit was locked down…

Blood Red Etobicoke Creek, Toronto, Canada, March 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death with tags , , , on March 25, 2020 by paulthepoke

Revelation 16:4 Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of waters; and they became blood.

Etobicoke Creek, Toronto, Canada: 400 liters of red ink have been spilled. This is Canada’s second effort on record in the last year. Last summer, the Salish Sea near Vancouver turned red.

https://paulthepoke.com/2019/07/25/blood-red-waters-vancouver-bc-canada-july-2019/

According to Peel Public Works, the company who provides drinking water in the area. This may affect water quality results…

The Revelation 16 verse is late in the order of the seven year Tribulation. This is an ink spell in a creek near Toronto.

Corona Virus Whaaat??? Rodna Epley

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , , on March 25, 2020 by paulthepoke

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

“Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.” (John 9:1-3)

All suffering is meant for one thing: God’s glory to be revealed NOW. Which means whatever dark or negative situation exists that we face is going to be exposed to the light as God’s glory is released out of us and into the situation where it is transformed into light (health etc).

We can’t blame God for suffering. We can technically only blame ourselves for not releasing God’s glory. But God doesn’t even want us to blame ourselves. He just wants us to know, so that we can release Him into our situations.

As widely spread as corona virus is, it tells us one thing: that God wants His glory widespread throughout the whole earth. If a single blind man’s condition was meant for God’s glory to manifest (by giving him eyes that see) then just think how much the Father wants His glory manifested where corona virus is concerned.

God didn’t created the virus, the devil did. But God is going to use it to reveal His glory. Yet He chooses to reveal His glory through His sons and daughters of glory. That’s you and me and all who are called by His name. The Father will gladly and willingly wipe out corona, but are we willing to let Him? Are we willing to do our part of the equation? He cleans the whole house but as His children we have to clean up our one bedroom. The blind man was healed by Jesus. Corona victims are cured and corona is wiped out by those Jesus sends.

“Jesus said…Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves. Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.” (John 14:11-12)

“For the earth will be filled
With the knowledge of the glory of the Lord,
As the waters cover the sea.” (Habakkuk 2:14)

“Awake, my glory!
Awake, lute and harp!
I will awaken the dawn.” (Psalm 57:8)

“Awake, O sleeper,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will shine on you.” (Ephesians 5:14)

Thank You Father for Your wisdom. Thank You Father for Your favor. Thank You Father that Your glory spreads eternally faster than any virus the enemy can make. In Jesus’ name, so be it and let it be so.

Dollar Appreciation Continues… Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 23, 2020 by paulthepoke

Proverbs 20:10 Unequal weights and unequal measures are both alike an abomination to the LORD.

Micah 6:10-11 Can I forget any longer the treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked, and the scant measure that is accursed? Shall I acquit the man with wicked scales and with a bag of deceitful weights?

Michael

All currencies are not created equal. Values of currencies change. God is not a fan of currency manipulation. Global markets and governments manipulate currencies on a daily basis. Imagine that, humanity outside of God’s economic laws…

The end result of currency changes can be dramatic. Michael explains the consequences of a rising dollar and what it means to global economics.

Michael has been talking with Technical Analyst Walter Zimmerman. He has target prices of the DXY (US Dollar) at 103.00. In an extreme case, Zimmerman has a target of 120.00 for the DXY. The end result would be cheaper prices and deflation in the United States. The rest of the world would pay higher prices and experience inflation. The US dollar is currently the global reserve currency.

Oil prices could drop as low as $15 per barrel in extreme cases. Michael Douville comments if we hit 120.00 on the DXY, oil could be roughly $5 per barrel. Recently, the DXY touched 102.82 and closed today at 102.10.

Global debt is financed in dollars. At some point, the bill comes due for borrowing money…

These are interesting times and it pays to be informed and prepared. Have a plan. Talk with your financial adviser.

It would appear the current trend of a strong dollar continues as the world struggles with COVID-19 coronavirus…

Zechariah, Meet Gabriel

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Angels with tags , , , on March 22, 2020 by paulthepoke

Luke 1:11 And there appeared to him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.

So Zechariah the priest is minding his own business by himself in the Temple…

And there appeared… ὁράω/horaó in the Greek. Defined, the term means to see or intently stare. Imagine being by yourself and a being shows up out of thin air. One might lock in on what is being seen.

Luke 1:12 And Zechariah was troubled when he saw him, and fear fell upon him.

Let’s look at the description of Zechariah when he realized the angel later to be identified as Gabriel.

We have the benefit of knowing Zechariah is meeting Gabriel. Zechariah will find this out later in the conversation.

Luke 1:19 And the angel answered him, “I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God, and I was sent to speak to you and to bring you this good news.

Zechariah was troubled or ταράσσω/tarassó. It could also mean to be stirred up or agitated.

Zechariah was overwhelmed or seized with fear or φόβος/phobos. The word can be defined as panic flight, fear, the causing of fear, terror. In English, we get the word “phobia” from the Greek.

Zechariah and the virgin Mary have the same initial response to Gabriel. The same Greek terms are used. Both were stirred up and scared.

Gabriel, for his part, has the same response to both Zechariah and Mary. He tells both of them to not be afraid and he calls them by name.

Luke 1:13a But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zechariah…

Luke 1:30a And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary

Likely to Zechariah’s surprise, the being knows his name and his wife’s name Elizabeth. Then Gabriel shares some information with Zechariah. You are going to be a father and you are going to name the child John.

Luke 1:13b …and you shall call his name John.
