On This Week in Prophecy… We have an operational update on the happenings in Ukraine. Russia is struggling to make gains. Ukraine continues to push the Russians out of their country. Russia has devastated utility services within Ukraine. Missile strikes have rendered the majority of the country without electricity. Basic provisions such as heat and water are being hit hard. Winter is beginning to set in…

Ezekiel 38:3-6 and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. 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. Persia, Cush, and Put are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

Turkey and Iran have discovered something they both have in common. They both have declared war on “terrorists” as they see it, the Kurds.

Turkey wants to be an energy hub partnering with Moscow, and Iran is selling drones to Moscow. Economics ties Turkey and Iran to Moscow. In this respect, they have a common policy, but not necessarily a policy that is solely anti-Kurdish. The end result is that Kurds are victims and pay the price for the Ankara-Tehran partnership.

Nahum 1:5 Mountains quake because of Him and the hills dissolve; indeed the earth is upheaved by His presence, the world and all the inhabitants in it.

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

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.

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

After a 38 year snooze, the world’s largest active volcano, Mauna Loa, has come to life in Hawaii. Fear not, the experts state there is nothing to worry about…

Area: 2,035 mi². Mauna Loa is 13,680 feet above sea level and more than 56,000 feet from its peak to its underwater base, according to USGS. Its volume is estimated to be some 18,000 cubic miles. -Google

Some locals have indicated they are watching a sacred, religious event. Altars have been constructed and sacrifices are being made near Mauna Loa.

Revelation 6:6 And I heard what sounded like a voice from among 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.”

The Dutch government is looking to purchase 3,000 farms and industrial polluters. Farmers are in the crosshairs for environmental violations. The crime, ammonia and nitrogen oxide emissions exceed EU law.

“For agricultural entrepreneurs, there will be a stopping scheme that will be as attractive as possible. For industrial peak polluters, we will get to work with a tailor-made approach and in tightening permits. After a year, we will see if this has achieved enough.” -Christianne van der Wal, Nitrogen Minister

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2022/nov/30/peak-polluters-last-chance-close-dutch-government

So why is this a big deal? Netherlands is the second largest food exporter in the world behind the United States. Agriculture is over a 100 billion Euro business.

A friendly reminder, the composition of our atmosphere and the air we breathe is roughly 79% Nitrogen.

Momentum continues to build for a trackable one world currency. Add Brazil and India to the growing list of nations embracing digital currencies.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Brazil legalized cryptocurrencies as a means of payment.
  • India’s central bank is testing its digital currency in different cities.
  • Digital currencies could be potential drivers of financial stability in emerging economies.

Netanyahu’s Government & Regional Energy Policy… Czekmate

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 14, 2022 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:10-12 Thus says the Lord God: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: You (Gog) will say, “I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land…”

With God’s help, Bibi can walk this tightrope. But now, at least the formation of the government hurdle is past the President’s office.

Many important strategic decisions will shake out of this. Regional allies (crazy age we live in that one can type that with respect to Israel) want to see a muscular, assertive Israel that acts with dignity. These would be the Abraham Accord partners. Rumor has it that if another weak Lapid like coalition government had come out of the elections that the Saudis would have continued fence sitting. The same set of speculation to Czekmate holds that with a reliably strong leader like Netanyahu, the Saudis are disposed to negotiating a more durable peace with Israel.

What is even more fascinating is that in partnership with Israel, the Arabs are prepared to go their own way on economic redundancies.

Much of the world’s energy must cross through three maritime choke points:
– the Strait of Hormuz, where the Persian Gulf empties to the Indian ocean;
– the Strait of Bab al Mandeb, where the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean meet;
– the Suez Canal, joining the Mediterranean and Red Seas.

In the cases of Hormuz and Bab Al Mandeb, there are Iranian direct or proxy military hazards to free navigation. In Egypt, which is the custodian of the Suez Canal, there is a stirring of the Muslim Brotherhood within the country.

Among western oriented Arab elite, there is growing doubt over the attenuated strength of the US Navy and it’s enduring strategy to keep maritime sea-lanes and choke points open.

The remedy, since the Briben administration came into office, has been to work bilaterally with a strong Israel. But alas, they’ve had a downright epicene (and corrupt) specimen of a government in Jerusalem under Lapid. There was not much upon which to predicate a reliable diplomatic/economic partnership. Netanyahu’s success renews a dynamic that again invites serious, durable changes to the national economic postures of all concerned.

The credible rumor of what is ahead went on, that Saudi Arabia would be more inclined to negotiate a permanent peace with attendant economic measures. This includes, major capital investments in partnership with the UAE to build pipeline infrastructure from the Persian Gulf to the Israeli coast for onward export. This would bypass all three maritime chokepoints, diminishing the growing Iranian influence in all three places and hedge against the absence of a robust and ubiquitous US Navy upholding it’s tacit obligation to enforce freedom of navigation in those places.

Solution wise, is this a panacea? No. It presents a whole new set of problems.

Having Israeli gas online in concert with overland energy flows, you are now talking a supra-national energy output to Europe that rivals Russia. Russia and Iran have become more symbiotic than ever, especially since the Ukrainian mis-adventure. More on that at another time perhaps.

In the meantime, keeping an eye on Israeli government formation is the mission of the day.

United Kingdom Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has changed his mind. Previously in August of 2022, Sunak indicated he sees Jerusalem as “Israel’s historic capital” in front of a Conservative Friends of Israel event.

Sunak had also publicly stated, “To me, it’s indisputably the historic capital… it seems to me that there is a very strong case to it, to recognize what is a historic and practical step. It would be something where we’d be acting in concert with our allies in the region and, in general, one of our closest allies, so it’s something I’d like to do.”

But now, “there are no current plans to change the location of our embassy.”

Israel has begun drilling in the Karish Gas Field in the Mediterranean Sea.

Prime Minister Yair Lapid made the following comment, “Producing gas from the Karish field will lower energy costs in Israel, will turn Israel into a regional energy supplier, and will help Europe deal with the energy crisis.”

Russia and Jordan are agreeing to coordinate efforts in Syria. This is definitely an issue to watch closely in light of Ezekiel 38-39.

Ezekiel 39:11 On that day I will give to Gog a place for burial in Israel, the Valley of the Travelers, east of the sea. It will block the travelers, for there Gog and all his multitude will be buried. It will be called the Valley of Hamon-gog.

Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi met Russian Sergei Lavrov in Amman, Jordan on November 3, 2022.

“The truth is Russian presence in Syria has been a stabilizing factor in the south because the vacuum would be filled by militias and other groups that will not be able to ensure stability in those places,” Jordan Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi.

Syria makes over 10 billion dollars from an amphetamine-like drug. Jordan has also had hundreds of thousand of refugees from Syria as a result of the civil war.

Russian President Vladimir Putin visited with Palestinian Leader Mahmoud Abbas.

“President Abbas briefed Putin on the latest political developments regarding the Palestinian issue, as well as on the continued Israeli violations against the Palestinian people, land, and Muslim and Christian holy sites, including the continued settlement construction, demolitions, extrajudicial killings, and the army siege imposed on the cities, refugee camps, and towns, particularly on Shuafat refugee camp, Nablus, and Jerusalem,” -Palestinian Spokesman.

Iranian drones and soldiers are now reported in Ukraine assisting the Russians. Previously, it was a one way street with arms deals from Russia to Iran. Just another sign of the strengthening of the relationship between Russia and Iran.

Russia has focused recent attacks on infrastructure in Ukraine. The latest estimates are a third to one half of electricity is off-line in Ukraine. Significant blackouts are occurring throughout Ukraine. Russia is utilizing missiles and purchased Iranian drones to achieve the objective. Putin’s goal is simple. He looks to freeze out the Ukrainians during winter.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11330085/Vladimir-Putins-blitz-plunges-Ukraine-darkness.html

Putin has also instituted Martial Law in the four annexed regions of Ukraine. Legislation was also passed for the Crimean Republic, Sevastopol, Krasnodar, Belgorod, Bryansk, Voronezh, Kursk, and Rostov Regions. Russian authorities now have additional powers to maintain security and rapid reaction to any emergencies.

Russia appears to be using rape as a military strategy.

“When women are held for days and raped, when you start to rape little boys and men, when you see a series of genital mutilations, when you hear women testify about Russian soldiers equipped with Viagra, it’s clearly a military strategy. And when the victims report what was said during the rapes, it is clearly a deliberate tactic to dehumanize the victims.”

There are… “confirmed crimes against humanity committed by the Russian forces, and according to gathered testimonies, the age of the victims of sexual violence ranges from four to 82 years old.” -UN Envoy Pramila Patten

Seven million plus Ukrainians have left the country since the beginning of the war.

Israel & Lebanon, Whose Natural Gas? -Czekmate

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

Psalm 2 Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us.” He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure: “Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion.”

“I will declare the decree: the Lord has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ ”

Now therefore, be wise, O kings; be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.

David Schenker, an interviewee for this story, is a top chap and once upon a time acquaintance of yours truly. The demarcation of the maritime claims in the eastern Mediterranean has been a contentious issue since the discovery of natural gas under the seabed. “The Watchmen” webcast has highlighted this issue previously.

As the US Ambassador presented Michel Aoun with Special Envoy Hochstein’s proposal for finalizing the agreement on demarcation, Czekmate was caught off-guard by the disarmingly congenial (relative term) reaction of Hezbollah figurehead Hasan Nasrallah. The coalition government in Jerusalem is corrupt (also a relative term), and I cannot shake the feeling that secret side-deals have been made.

That would put Israeli leftists in the same bed as their enemies with the US pimping the consummation. It would add an additional equation to the Nord Stream problem set.

I hope I’m wrong. What was it? Who benefitted? Psalm 2.

https://jewishinsider.com/2022/09/amos-hochstein-lebanon-israel-maritime-mediterranean/

The issue is the Karish Gas Field off the coast of Israel. The only line that existed prior to the discovery of the Karish Gas Field was the red line. In November of 2019, Israel discovered natural gas. Since then, Lebanon has redrawn a yellow, green, and blue line. As of October 2022, Lebanon wants to live by the blue line and reap the benefits of the Karish Field.

In a turn of events, Hezbollah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah has voiced a United States mediated agreement between Israel and Lebanon as an “important step”.

“…new and promising horizons for the people of Lebanon by rescuing the country from the crisis it has fallen into.”

“Only Lebanon will make the decision to demarcate its maritime boundaries, and it will do this according to what Lebanon sees as good for the state,” Hassan Nasrallah.

Previously, Nasrallah’s comments were about military targeting of Israeli resources if they chose to drill in the Karish.

“Israel believes that it is both possible and necessary to reach an agreement on a maritime line between Lebanon and Israel, in a manner that will serve the interests of the citizens of both countries.” -Spokesperson, Israeli Prime Minister, Yair Lapid

Amos Hochstein of the United States has been the mediator.

Welcome to the Watchmen. We are just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world go by. On this episode of the Watchmen…

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization met about a week ago. This is the last time Chinese President Xi Xinping was seen in public.

There are currently 8 member states that make up the organization. Iran signed a Memorandum of Obligations to become a permanent member of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan wants to become a member nation. Those two additions would make for 10 nations. Interesting number…

Daniel 2:40-43 And there shall be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron, because iron breaks to pieces and shatters all things. And like iron that crushes, it shall break and crush all these. And as you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, it shall be a divided kingdom, but some of the firmness of iron shall be in it, just as you saw iron mixed with the soft clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly iron and partly clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly brittle. As you saw the iron mixed with soft clay, so they will mix with one another in marriage, but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay.

Rest“… The word is “shamat” in the Hebrew. It is defined by Strong’s Concordance as: to release, let drop or loose or rest or fall.

The Jewish people also refer to this as “shemitah”. It literally means to release.

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.

“remission of debts…” In the original Hebrew text “of debts” is not present. “of debts” was added by the translators. Shemitah is the Hebrew word for remission. Shemitah as defined by Strong’s Concordance means: cancellation of debts, letting drop of exactions, (temporary) remitting, release (from debt).

Shemitah comes from the root word shamat.

For multiple posts regarding teachings on the Shemitah, click on the link below.

Debt will be released on either Monday, September 26th or Tuesday, September 27th pending the sighting of the new moon. Historically, challenging economic circumstances arise.

Red Heifer Update, Heifers’ Age; Putin’s Call for 300K Troops, Threatens West with Nuclear Weapons

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on September 21, 2022 by paulthepoke

Numbers 19:1-2 Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, “This is the statute of the law which the Lord has commanded, saying, ‘Speak to the sons of Israel that they bring you an unblemished red heifer in which is no defect and on which a yoke has never been placed.

Recent disclosure from Boneh Israel indicates the heifers are not quite one year old. The heifers will be one year old in October, 2022.

“Timing was critical. We needed to wait until after they were weaned at five months, but we had to bring them to Israel before they were a year old, as it is not allowed to ship livestock that is one year old.”

“…But by October, the cows would have been one year old and Israel would not have accepted them at that age. 12 months old is a clear cutoff.” -Boneh Israel spokesperson

The cost to fly the 5 red heifers to Israel was over $250,000. It will cost $50 a day to feed the 5 red heifers. Looks like they are going to be cared for at least one year…

Ezekiel 38:1-6 The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. 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. Persia, Cush, and Put are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

Russian President Vladimir Putin made a historical speech today. He called up 300,000 military reservists. He threatened the west with a tactical nuclear response. Great Britain and Germany appeared to be the targets. And he stated, “I’m not bluffing.”

With that, protests erupted and spread across Russia. “I’m not going to die for Putin!”

People are trying to leave Russia at any cost and upwards of $50,000 in some cases.

The territories of Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson will be holding a referendum vote from September 23rd – 27th to decide if they want to become part of Russia. If agreeable, Putin has vowed to defend the annexed regions with the full power of the Russian army.

The Russian stock market collapsed over 10% today.

Russia continues to shell Ukraine with arguably white phosphorous, blow up infrastructure including electrical plants, water treatment centers, and river dams.

See a full copy of Putin’s speech at the link below. Speech is at the bottom of the article.

Keep your eyes on the Collective Security Treaty Organization. This is a group of old Soviet block countries. They include Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan. Are these Magog’s hordes and many peoples?

Russia has cut off the flow of natural gas to Europe. Nord Stream 1 has been shut down indefinitely.

“Europe’s storages are well on track to hitting or even surpassing their targets for this summer, and there’s plenty of scope to replace that gas with liquified natural gas imports for now, but when weather turns cold and demand starts to pick up in the winter in Europe and Asia, there’s only so much LNG out there that Europe can import to replace Russian gas.”

Companies are shutting down across Europe due to high gas and electricity costs. This week, the world’s second largest steel maker is closing indefinitely.

Revelation 2:8a And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write…

Turkey is threatening Greece in the Aegean Sea. President Recep Erdogan invokes modern day Izmir or ancient Smyrna in his comments. Remember the churches in Revelation???

“We have only one word to tell Greece: Do not forget Izmir (Smyrna in Greek). Your occupation of the islands does not bind us. When the time comes, we will do what’s necessary. As we say, we may come suddenly one night.” Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan in reference to the end of the Greek occupation after Turkish forces entered the city in the Aegean coast in 1922.
