Israel, Egypt, and European Union Sign Historic Gas Deal

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 16, 2022 by paulthepoke

Deuteronomy 33:18-19 And of Zebulun he said, “Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going out, and Issachar, in your tents. They shall call peoples to their mountain; there they offer right sacrifices; for they draw from the abundance of the seas and the hidden treasures of the sand.”

In early October 2015, Israel discovered a vast oil deposit in the Golan Heights region north of the Sea of Galilee. The coast of Israel is home to two tremendous areas of natural gas. The Leviathan oil and gas basin in the Mediterranean Sea is believed to hold 1.7 billion barrels of oil. The basin also holds an estimated 122 trillion cubic feet of natural gas (Noble Energy, U.S. Geological Survey). A second oil and natural gas basin is the Tamar. It is estimated to hold 7.9 trillion cubic feet of natural gas (Noble Energy). In June of 2022, a third major basin is emerging, the Karish gas field.

Cairo, Egypt, June 16, 2022: Israel, Egypt, and the European Union have signed a historic gas deal. The document has gas deliveries to Europe until 2050. Under the plan, Israeli gas will be transported by pipeline to Egypt’s Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) terminal on the Mediterranean Sea. Then, LNG will be transported by ship to Europe.

The deal should bring 1 Billion shekels or $290 million dollars to the Israeli government.

Egyptian Petroleum Minister Tarek el-Molla indicated the agreement should result in more economic cooperation between members of the East Mediterranean Gas Forum, which comprises Jordan, Israel, Cyprus, Greece, Egypt, the Palestinian Authority, France and Italy.

Europe now has existing gas deals with Israel, the United States, and Qatar.

“The memorandum of understanding will allow Israel to export Israeli natural gas to Europe for the first time, and it is even more impressive when one looks at the string of significant agreements we have signed in the past year, positioning Israel and the Israeli energy and water economy as a key player in the world,” Israeli Energy Minister Karine Elharrar.

“This is a historic day for the EU’s energy engagement and energy security: Signing the MOU with Egypt and Israel, two reliable, strategic partners. We will be able to count on LNG from Israel and the Mediterranean region via the Egyptian LNG infrastructure,” EU Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson

The European Union receives approximately 40% of its natural gas from Russia.

“The Kremlin has used our dependency on Russian fossil fuels to blackmail us. Since the beginning of the war, Russia has deliberately cut off its gas supplies to Poland, Bulgaria and Finland, and Dutch and Danish companies, in retaliation for our support to Ukraine,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.

As this deal was being signed, Russia via Gazprom closed the spigot of natural gas by 15% to Italy on the same day. An explanation was not given. Italy receives 40% of its gas from Russia.

Gazprom also cut delivery of natural gas to Germany by 40%. Equipment repairs were needed, allegedly.

Ezekiel 38:12 to capture spoil and to seize plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places which are now inhabited, and against the people who are gathered from the nations, who have acquired cattle and goods, who live at the center of the world.

…to turn your hand against the waste places which are now inhabited… This is an accurate description of the land of Israel prior to their return to the land in the early 20th century. The land was known as chorbah in the Hebrew. Per Strong’s it means: a place laid waste, ruin, waste, desolation, or a desert.

… and against the people who are gathered from the nations… From the Balfour Declaration in 1917, the rebirth of a nation in 1948, to reclaiming Jerusalem as its capital in 1967, Jews have been returning to their land to the present day.

… who have acquired cattle and goods… Cows from Israel are noted to be the most productive in the world when it comes to milk. Cows are constantly monitored and under intense observation. Data is taken intently from a variety of perspectives.

… who live at the center of the world. This is God’s view of the nation Israel. This is where His people live. The geography of the nation is “the center of the world”.

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 9, 2022 by paulthepoke

This Week in Prophecy:

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov claims Hitler had Jewish blood. The result was outrage from Israel.

Israel swears in first Muslim to the Supreme Court of the nation.

Hamas leaders flew to Moscow for an emergency meeting. Russian President Putin pledges full support to the Palestinians after skirmishes with Israeli security on the Temple Mount.

The United States, G7, and possibly Europe increase economic sanctions on Russia.

Bulgaria is looking to Turkey for natural gas since Russia has turned off the flow. What will Russia of Turkey? Turkey continues to ride the slippery fence in international affairs.

The Watchmen: Temple Mount Control & Jordan, Abraham Accords Trade, Erdogan Travels to Saudi Arabia, Rublezone, Putin’s Surgery, Iranian Reach & Propaganda

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 2, 2022 by paulthepoke

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

In this episode of The Watchmen we look at Jordan wanting full control of the Temple Mount complex. Are we watching Jordan respond to regional pressure with regards to security of the Muslim religious sites? How does this relate to Ezekiel 38-39? Flags are flying on the Temple Mount during Ramadan. Who do these flags represent?

The United Arab Emirates are flying heavy transport planes in and out of Israel. It appears defense contracts are being fulfilled between the Abraham Accord countries. The concern is an increasingly hostile Iran with nuclear intentions.

President Recep Erdogan of Turkey travelled to Saudi Arabia this week for the first time in five years. Erdogan stated, “I see and believe that it is in our joint interest to boost our cooperation with Saudi Arabia in such areas as healthcare, energy, food security, agricultural technologies, defense industry and finance. It seems that we have significant potential particularly in renewable and green energy. We will hopefully discuss and thoroughly evaluate these issues.”

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps allegedly tried to assassinate an Israeli diplomat in Turkey. Iran is reaching out via Hezbollah around the globe including the British Virgin Islands with drug deals.

Russia is cutting off the flow of natural gas to European countries of Poland and Bulgaria who refuse to pay in rubles. However, the Rublezone has manifested with Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary who are agreeable to pay for natural gas in rubles.

Allegedly, Russian President Vladimir Putin is scheduled for cancer surgery in the near future. Fellow KGB comrade Nikolai Patrushev is picked to assume authority while Putin is under treatment. Putin is suspected to be managing Parkinson’s Disease and symptoms related to the progressive neurological disorder. Check out video and professional analysis of Putin’s physical condition.

Teaser alert… Food processing plants are catching fire around the United States. 18 plants have been affected in the last 6 months. More on this topic to come in future episodes of the Watchmen.

Lastly, nothing like a little Iranian Propaganda gong wrong. In preparation for Jerusalem Day, things don’t go as planned. This section of the Watchmen was brought to you by Beavis and Butthead. Sorry, we could not help ourselves. Deep down, grown men have a teenage boy inside of them!

The Watchmen: Russia/Ukraine Update, Iran in the News, Turkey Peace Negotiations, Saudi Oil Attacked, Israel’s Negev Summit, Abraham Accord Festival, Energy Inflation

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 28, 2022 by paulthepoke

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

In this episode of The Watchmen we look at the current situation on the ground in Ukraine. How is Russian troop morale? Anecdotal evidence suggests things are not all roses.

Is this morale foreshadowing into Ezekiel 38:21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Lord GOD. Every man’s sword will be against his brother.

Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan looks to host peace negotiations between Ukraine and Russia in Turkey. Erdogan is looking to elevate himself on the world stage as a power broker.

As a hallmark of the end times scenario, deception is every where. In today’s world, we call it propaganda and spin. Everyone is trying to project a message regardless of the facts of the matter.

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia… Modern day Iran is keeping busy. The Iran Nuclear Deal negotiations continue. The Iranian proxies in Yemen, the Houthis, have launched an attack on the Saudi Arabian oil company Aramco. Iran marked the occasion by projecting pictures of Houthi leaders on the famed Azadi Tower in Tehran.

Israel is hosting the Negev Summit this week. Partners in the Abraham Accords and nations at peace with Israel are in attendance. US Secretary of State Blinken is at the meeting and touring the Middle East and North Africa.

The Abraham Accords Festival and Games kicks off this week as well. Soccer friendlies are the headliners.

Inflation continues to be an issue. Gas prices are going up in Israel. Germany is out of natural gas. Countries are lining up to take advantage of the situation.

Aggression continues to increase around the Middle East and Europe. The rest of the world stands by and watches. Ezekiel 38 speaks of a time when not one country will come to the defense of Israel. As it stands now, no one is coming to the defense of Ukraine. No one is coming to the defense of Saudi Arabia. The United States is stepping away from the Middle East…

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard (IRGC)… Czekmate

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Teshuvah/Repent with tags , , , , , , , , on March 26, 2022 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Cush, and Put are with them, all of them with shield and helmet…

A private letter from Iran on de-escalation. I have to give it to them, they at least made some kind of overture regarding the difficulty of this matter.

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) rise to domestic prominence in Iran was a counter-revolution within the Iranian “Islamic Revolution”. It was the war veterans of the Iran/Iraq war who felt aggrieved that the clerical establishment, based around Islamic Jurists from the city of Qom, were seen as deriving exclusive authority and benefit of leading Iranian society. That the clerical establishment, the so-called Qomists as a faction maintained power having shouldered less burden. In short, the IRGC usurpation was based on a contemporary historical grievance against this faction in favor of the literal foot soldiers of the revolution.

As with any authoritarian government the ascendant faction must intertwine itself with the organs of state. The result is to make the two indistinguishable to the outsider or the subjugated population of said country. By way of example, this is acutely the case in the People’s Republic of China where one party rules. The primary benefit of this party/state fusion is that confidential party deliberations often become a forum for graft, threats and other assorted thuggery. In the case of Iran, the Qomist structure was effectively supplanted by the IRGC structure. This process began with the rise of former President Ahmadinejad and is effectively accomplished.

The IRGC spread its tentacles having gained ascendancy, and utilizing its significant resources, quickly established it’s shadow economy. In recognition of this, the Trump administration placed the organization under sanction as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO). After all, that is manifestly what they are.

It follows that in order for Iran to function fully free of US FTO sanction, the IRGC has a raw choice. Lose prestige at home and swallow the inequity of a deal where they are hobbled as an internal economic force (and thus politically vulnerable to a challenge), or push the FTO de-listing issue to the point of breakdown in talks as a diplomatic impasse.

Chances are excellent that informal diplomacy is being “back channeled”.

Czekmate believes that Barack Obama, Susan Rice and Valerie Jarrett are influencing the direction of events in these discussions. Lead negotiator Robert Malley, appears to enjoy a free hand. However within the National Security Council is the White House lead for the region in the person of one Brett McGurk.

McGurk is a high level Washington functionary having worked in the George W. Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations before joining the Biden Administration. McGurk was involved in the 2015 secret negotiations of the first Iran deal and latter led the counter-ISIS effort in Syria. If skullduggery is afoot from outside the White House with respect to Iran, you can bet that he and Susan Rice are the likeliest interface points for the Obama mafia.

But the heretofore alacrity of the negotiations may be on a collision course with other considerations.

The article in this post implies that cooler heads may be prevailing with regard to the IRGC question. This is attributed to formidable domestic US pressure. However, a wider implication that merits consideration is that of the Ukraine intervention. Given the Russian diplomatic maneuvers over the course of recent weeks in this negotiation, it is clear that the economic damage they may have sustained would benefit substantially by this agreement. It begs the question, is the IRGC FTO decision hostage to the future of Russian combat operations in Ukraine? Or is it vice versa?

With that question in mind, this IRGC decision has added weight. It makes one wonder what is being said in the back channel.

US Consulate in Erbil, Iraq Hit by Iranian Ballistic Missiles

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , on March 12, 2022 by paulthepoke

Developing…

Multiple news sites are confirming. Video has emerged of ballistic missiles hitting the US Consulate in Erbil, Iraq. The Fateh-110 missiles are believed to be launched from the East Azerbaijan Province in Iran.

The Fateh-110 is an Iranian short-range, road-mobile, solid-propellant ballistic missile.

Mark 13:7 And when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. This must take place, but the end is not yet. -Jesus

Will this draw the United States into a world with many conflicts?

The Watchmen: Jerusalem Peace Negotiations, Iranian Nuclear Deal, Saudi & Libyan Response, India

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

Ezekiel 38 continues to trend in today’s news flow.

President Zelensky of Ukraine has requested peace negotiations to take place in Jerusalem. Zelensky personally reaches out to Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. The United States pressures Israeli to join the west in sanctions against Russia. Israel attempts to keep a neutral position in the conflict.

President Isaac Herzog of Israel visits President Recep Erdogan of Turkey. Both countries look to thaw icy relations of the recent past.

The Iranian Nuclear deal has hit a snag. Top Iranian negotiator has been flying back and forth between Tehran and Vienna. Where does the situation stand as of today? Russia wants reassurances they can continue to do energy business with Iran. Reserves of natural gas and oil are at play in the Caspian Sea.

The Saudis are re-assessing their relationship with the United States. Can the Americans be trusted? Issues regarding the Sunni and Shia divide are coming into play. Sunni Muslims (Saudis, Pakistanis, and others) are growing increasingly concerned with Shia Muslims (Iranians). The issue is the Iranian Nuclear negotiations.

Libya’s new government has spoken out against Russia after receiving the Russian seal of approval. Libya is the largest producer of oil and natural gas in Africa. So of course, Russia is interested in Libyan affairs. Libya’s ultimate consideration is food imports and inflated prices from Ukraine and Russia.

What role will India play in world affairs? A supersonic missile managed to penetrate Pakistan this past week.

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

What in the world is Israeli PM Bennett doing trying to broker peace between Ukraine and Russia? Bennett is an Orthodox Jew. Has he read Ezekiel 38-39?

The Iranian nuclear deal appears to be coming close to completion. Look who is working together… Iran, Russia, and China. Is this a good deal for the rest of the world? Will the world be a safer place? Who benefits economically?

Iran shows off their latest military equipment via the Russian press.

Federal Reserve Chairman Powell discussed the possibility of other alternatives to the dollar in a global economy.

Knock on effects are starting to emerge. The price of wheat, oil, and natural gas are going straight up. A war is taking place in the bread basket of Europe. Millions of people in North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, and Europe are at risk for hyperinflation of food prices.

Russia has cut off the supply of natural gas to Europe.

Turkish inflation is out of control.

Gog of Magog… Ezekiel 38-39 vs. Revelation 20

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 6, 2022 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:2 Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him…

Revelation 20:7-8 And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison and will come out to deceive the nations that are at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea.

photo: wikimedia

There is plenty of discussion about these two sets of Bible verses. Some would say this is the same scenario and is to take place after Jesus Christ’s Millennial Kingdom.

Others would say these are two different events in history. The Ezekiel scenario takes place before the Millennial Kingdom and the Revelation scenario takes place after the Millennial Kingdom.

Full disclosure, it is the website’s position these are two different events in history.

The first difference is the calling of Gog of Magog. In Ezekiel, it is God Himself who calls Gog. The good Lord is going fishing.

Ezekiel 38:4 And I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great host, all of them with buckler and shield, wielding swords.

In Revelation, Gog and Magog are manipulated and tricked by Satan.

Revelation 20:8 and will come out to deceive the nations that are at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea.

~

A second observation is the audience. In Ezekiel 38-39, it is stated multiple times that Gog of Magog will come from the north. All things are relative to the center of the earth (Ezekiel 38:12), Israel. What are the uttermost parts of the north, modern day Russia.

Ezekiel 38:15 You will come from your place out of the uttermost parts of the north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great host, a mighty army.

For other references to the north, see Ezekiel 38:6, 39:2.

In Revelation, Satan deceives the nations or ἔθνος/ethnos in the Greek from the entirety of the earth, the four corners of the earth.

~

The third consideration is the time point.

The Revelation reference is straight forward. It is post Millennial Kingdom, 1,000 years after Jesus Christ has returned to earth to establish the Kingdom.

Revelation 20:7 And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison…

In Ezekiel 38-39, there are a couple of references to “the latter years“. The Hebrew term acharith could also be translated “end“. This is often a time referred to as prior to the coming of the Messiah and the establishment of the Kingdom.

Ezekiel 38:8 After many days you will be mustered. In the latter years you will go against the land that is restored from war, the land whose people were gathered from many peoples upon the mountains of Israel, which had been a continual waste. Its people were brought out from the peoples and now dwell securely, all of them.

See also Ezekiel 38:16 for latter or end years reference.

~

Personally, the most compelling evidence lies in the geographical differences. The Revelation reference refers to the broad plain of the earth.

Revelation 20:9 And they marched up over the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, but fire came down from heaven and consumed them…

…the broad plain of the earth… Notice the term is singular, one land mass. Mountains and islands are not mentioned. They have been removed. The Greek word for “broad plain” is platos (πλάτος). Per Strong’s Concordance, the term suggests great extent. The Greek word for “earth” is ge (γῆ). The term is defined as: arable land; the ground, the earth as a standing place.

As of today in the 21st century, the “beloved city” is Jerusalem. And it sits on a mountain top. At some point in the future, geography will change.

Prior to the physical return of Jesus Christ to earth and at least another 1,000 years to the events in Revelation 20 with Gog and Magog, this takes place.

Revelation 16:20 And every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found.

The idea of no more mountains and changed geography is noted in multiple places in the Bible. Revelation is not the only source of this concept.

Psalm 97:5 The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth.

Psalm 46:6 The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts.

Isaiah 24:1 Behold, the LORD lays the earth waste, devastates it, distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants.

Isaiah 24:19 The earth is utterly broken, the earth is split apart, the earth is violently shaken.

Micah 1:4 And the mountains will melt under him, and the valleys will split open, like wax before the fire, like waters poured down a steep place.

The level of destruction is unimaginable. We cannot comprehend. It says what it says.

~

In the Ezekiel 38-39 scenario there are multiple references to the mountains of Israel. Notice the context of the verse below is a great earthquake. The result speaks for itself.

Ezekiel 38:20b …And the mountains shall be thrown down, and the cliffs shall fall, and every wall shall tumble to the ground.

See also Ezekiel 38:8, 21, 39:2, 4 for Israel mountain references.

~

It stands to reason, these are two separate events which are separated by at least 1,000 years.

Propaganda of War… Czekmate

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Fake News???, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on March 5, 2022 by paulthepoke

Proverbs 22:8 Whoever sows injustice will reap calamity, and the rod of his fury will fail.

Czekmate has a number of complaints about this war of propaganda. It takes a discerning eye to get what appears to be truth out of it, from the Ukrainian side and (nearly as always) the Russian one.

Thoughts to consider via a pretentious self-Q&A —
Are people dying? Surely.

Is there a humanitarian crisis? Unquestionably, based strictly on the amount a fear being generated among the population.

Are troops in contact? Seems to be the case if even the Russians will admit casualties.

Are the Ukrainians using the violence to mask international criminality under the pretense of Russian attack? Almost certainly evidence is being destroyed and made to look like battlefield violence. Anyone who’d have turned state’s evidence in relation to the Maidan Massacre, Hunter Biden/Burisma, or the bogus Ukraine impeachment scandal best be out of the country and have exfiltrated documents.

Are the Ukrainians effectively using their military aid donated to them by western states? Not sure, they are horrendously irresponsible weapons proliferators – if we see Javelins and Stingers on the international black arms market, we’ll a sign of profiteering. Remember Libya, that is how we ended up with Benghazi and weapons trafficking to Syria through Turkey.

Is the violence fueling internecine fighting in Ukraine? This was the case in Iraq, where tribes would open a fight against each other and try to draw in the coalition. There is likely some Ukrainian mafia infighting among the targets being struck. In other words, the combat becomes cover for the Ukrainian Mafia world to consolidate and realign power among the criminal groups.

This was the secret to Putin’s rise to power toward the tail end of the mafia criminal wars in Moscow and Saint Petersburg (1990s). Much of this fighting will have a component involving the reordering the Ukrainian underworld. This was the case in the second Chechen war and the Russian intervention in Georgia. In that way, the appearance of a crescendo in Russian violence needs to be considered.

Is Zelensky a hero like CNN/MSNBC/FOX says? Time will tell. He is riding a wave of international acclaim that is probably fueling some muted outrage in the Kremlin. For an information war, Ukraine and the International/DNC hacks are just showing the Russians that they can ‘play the game harder’.

In the case of Mr. Zelensky, having little/no experience in situations like this, he is way too cool. He would also do well to remember that other international figures of acclaim include Michael Avenati (thief), Yassir Arafat (terrorist) and Anthony Fauci (charges pending).

With that, read this daily dose of semi-truth and note the buried story lead of Mid-East Mercenaries (Ezekiel 38 “Many nations with you” — that comes later… but keep it in mind).
