Whose Approval??? Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly with tags , , , on August 26, 2022 by paulthepoke

Why do we seek the approval of others more so than we seek the approval of God? Why do we let the opinions of others affect us so much?

Do not let the opinions of others dictate who you think you should be. Just be you & do what you know is right in your heart & naturally attract those that are right for you.

Stop doing backflips for people that will only use you to benefit themselves. Be happy in God rather than miserable being who you aren’t. Avoid fools.

Galatians 1:10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant to God.

Proverbs 18:2 A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.

Have a great weekend my friends!!!

Dollar Inflation? Rising to 20 or 25% Inflation? Is this possible? Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on August 23, 2022 by paulthepoke

Proverbs 4:13 Hold on to instruction; do not let go. Guard it, for it is your life.

Proverbs 1:5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels…

Proverbs 27:12 The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.

Well, I do not have good news. Dr. Nenner believes Inflation will be with us in the US for a very long time. How is this possible?

There are government restrictions of Resources like food and energy that will cause scarcity and scarcity causes prices to rise. The United States is experiencing policies of restriction. Scarcity Inflation!

There is now a restriction of Credit, higher interest rates and Quantitative Tightening by less purchasing of Mortgage-backed securities. When it costs more, it raises expenses and higher expenses causes higher prices.

With the US dollar heading toward all-time highs, the US is exporting our Inflation. The dollar is now stronger than the Euro. The dollar is gaining strength against currencies around the world. When the US Dollar is high, this causes Inflation, much higher prices, in countries with weaker currencies.

Utility and energy costs are exploding across Europe. Germans are paying 14X more for electricity than they were a year ago. European Businesses are closing across the European Union. Goods are being restricted affecting industrial production and construction.

What happens when, not if, when the US Dollar Cycles down. Will prices react as well? Will prices go up 20%, 30 % or more?

Make plans now!!!

Revelation 6:5-6 When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

A hallmark of the beginning of the tribulation is hyperinflation as noted in Revelation 6 which leads to global famine. Revelation 6 talks of a time when it will cost a day’s wage just to eat.

Are we there yet? No, I don’t believe the seven year tribulation has started.

We know how we get to the beginning of the tribulation: a peace maker, war, hyperinflation, starvation. We are trending and living in inflationary times…

Teshuvah 5782/2022

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Teshuvah/Repent with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 21, 2022 by paulthepoke

The month of Elul initiates a 40 day period called Teshuvah. The point of the season is to prepare for the civil Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. This appointed feast day is also referred to as Yom Teruah by Jews. Christians may refer to the day as the Feast of Trumpets. The season of Teshuvah concludes on Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement.

Teshuvah is a time to turn toward God. People are called to turn away from their sin, repent, and change course. It is a time of inward reflection and sincere self-assessment. The goal is a change in lifestyle away from sin to obedience in God’s word. The 40 day period starts on Elul 1 and ends on Tishri 10, Yom Kippur.

Elul is the last month of the civic calendar in Judaism. Elul is the sixth month of God’s calendar. Jewish tradition points to the name of the month to be an acronym of “Ani l’dodi v’dodi li” a quote from Song of Songs 6:3 I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine… 

In Aramaic, the vernacular of the Jewish people at the time that the month names were adopted, the word Elul means “search”. Per Strong’s Concordance, Elul means “nothingness” in the Hebrew. The month is mentioned one time in the Bible. Nehemiah 6:15 So the wall was completed on the twenty-fifth of the month Elul, in fifty-two days. 

This year, 5782/2022, the start of Elul will begin at the sighting of the sliver of the new moon by two witnesses. It is estimated to be observed at sun set from possibly Saturday, August 27 to Monday, August 29.

Cultural customs per http://www.jewfaq.orghttp://www.myjewishlearning.com .

This year, 5782/2022, the season of Teshuvah is unique and exceptional.

The end of the month of Elul marks the end of a sabbatical or shemitah year. On a western Gregorian calendar, that is Sunday, September 25 to Tuesday, September 27, 2022. Remember, the new month, and in this case the new civil year, is decreed upon the confirmation of the new moon by two witnesses. Historically, God releases debt on the last day of the last year of a seven year cycle. 

Deuteronomy 15:1-2 At the end of every seven years you shall grant a remission of debts. This is the manner of remission: every creditor shall release what he has loaned to his neighbor; he shall not exact it of his neighbor and his brother, because the LORD’S remission has been proclaimed. 

Historically, this is not a good omen for economic markets. If history is any indicator, fasten your seat belts. The land completes its rest on approximately Sunday, September 25 to Tuesday, September 27, 2022 pending two witnesses confirming the new moon. God is going into action and debt will be released. Keep your eyes on the markets. Planet Earth is likely to get even more interesting. Like we do not have enough to be concerned about already.

Time will tell…

Why I Changed My Mind About Evil! (I Was WRONG)… JP Sears

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Culture, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on August 18, 2022 by paulthepoke

For those of you who are not familiar, this is JP Sears.

JP Sears is a comedian who tours the country extensively doing stand-up comedy and publishing weekly online videos. His videos have been viewed more than 500 million times. In addition to inspiring laughter in a weird world, JP’s work takes an unapologetic stand for freedom, free speech, and encouraging people to free themselves from fear.

CAUTION! JP will use very adult language and he is not afraid to engage in controversial topics. Some of you will likely be offended. Warning completed…

JP will openly admit. He is not a Biblical scholar.

But JP does understand fundamental truth about a few Bible verses and concepts.

Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

2 Corinthians 11:14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

The Door… Rodna Epley

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Rodna Epley on August 17, 2022 by paulthepoke

“I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” (John 10:9)

Jesus is the only door to the Father. There is no other door that gives us access. The “in and out“ that Jesus was talking about means that we go in and out of the Father’s presence, which is glory, and we find pasture to release that glory so that He fills the earth with it. The pasture is where we minister to other people in the world somewhere. We do this by releasing God’s glory through our words and works that match the Holy Spirit’s words and works. It transforms a perishing death-like condition (anything that doesn’t have perfect peace) into glory, so that it lives and does not die.

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;” (Psalm 23:5)

“Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death.” (John 8:51)

“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 14:12)

Normal??? Christine McDonald

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Christine "Clarity" McDonald with tags , , , , , , on August 10, 2022 by paulthepoke

Remember that for sex trafficked individuals, their normal is not our normal, and stable is not always stable. Many youths, teens, and adults who are pulled out of commercial exploitation and human trafficking situations, or who enter programs and are placed in the care of loving and healing situations, do not adjust well. The reason for this is that their brains are conditioned to a state of “normal” that functions best in the traumatic situation they have just been removed from.

The longer someone was in the life (human trafficking, prostitution, addiction, etc.), the more deeply engrained this abnormal/normal reversion becomes in their brains, and the longer it will take to break through those barriers to retrain and find a healthy normal.

Changing the mindset and behavior of an individual who has endured a multitude of traumas does not happen by simply changing his or her environment. We have to understand this from the get–go. This is something that even the most loving care professionals may not understand. Often, creating a new and healthy normal for an individual exiting the life involves much counseling and work to alter his or her bases of understanding.

Building trust doesn’t always come easily. They will test you, but be consistent. Your job is to continue to walk alongside them, building trust, helping them process, assisting them as they recover a healthy normal, and allowing them to express their feelings and discover their true selves. The following tools will help you be an agent of this growth as you continue your relationship with them.

In this photo from the film I Will Rise, the actress is reenacting a moment of time. I’ll never forget my humanity was seen. Needs were met. I’ll never forget Miss Jeannie and Metro Lutheran Ministries and that “drop in center” on McGee in the ’90s. She allowed me to sleep on the floor of her office. It was the most significant amount of love I had experienced. #IWillRise

Capital Flowing to the US Foreboding Further Conflict? War Drums are Beating! Taiwan-China???? Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , on August 6, 2022 by paulthepoke

Proverbs 22:3 The prudent see danger and take cover, but the simple keep going and suffer the consequences.

Proverbs 27:12 The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.

China PLA

Are we watching history repeat itself? Money is flowing into the United States. Hundreds of millions of dollars are pouring in. Why?

Taiwan Semiconductor is building 8 plants in the Phoenix area.

Capital always flows out of danger into safer locations. Prior to Russia invading Ukraine, Capital moved to the US. Is that starting again over the China-Taiwan issue?
