Failed Coup in Sudan

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , on September 22, 2021 by paulthepoke

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

Genesis 2:13 The name of the second river is the Gihon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of Cush.

This is the first mention in the Bible of the land south of Egypt. The Hebrew word is Cush. It is translated as Cush or Ethiopia in the biblical text. It is a land in the southern Nile River valley. This is possibly modern day Sudan.

September 2021: Loyalists to the former President of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, attempted a coup. They have failed and over 40 have been jailed.

November 2017: Russian President Vladimir Putin invited Sudan President Omar al-Bashir to Sochi for a meeting. Sudan was asking for Russian protection against American aggression. The former Sudanese president is not exactly a choir boy in need of protection. He was wanted by the International Criminal Court for genocide and war crimes.

Al-Bashir was seeking an arms deal, grain imports from Russia, electrical industry assistance, and nuclear power for peaceful purposes of course.

Sudan PM Abdalla Hamdok

In 2019, Democratic forces resulted in al-Bashir being jailed and a new government formed under the leadership of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok.

October 2020: President Donald Trump announced yet another historic peace deal. This time, Israel and Sudan were partners. Sudan had been entered as a member of the expanding Abraham Accords.

For now, Prime Minister Hamdok remains in power. Elections are not scheduled until 2024. Currently, Sudan is governed by a civilian and military government.

Who knows what the twists and turns may be. But we know what is stated and how these events will ultimately play out…

The prophet Ezekiel states Russia, Turkey, Iran and allies are prophesied to invade Israel (Ezekiel 38-39). Arguably, Sudan may join Gog of Magog (modern day Russia) in their invasion of Israel at some point in the future.

Where Is America In Prophecy???

This Week in Prophecy

Where is America in Prophecy???

The short answer is, America is not there. It is not mentioned directly.

https://valortube.com/profile/paulthepoke/

America is stepping away from the world stage. And every place America has left, a vacuum is created. Something will fill the vacuum.

As America left Afghanistan, the Taliban took its place. As chaos rules, the Taliban is supported by players in end times Biblical prophecies, specifically Russia, Iran, and China.

In this edition, we go around the region and look at the void left by American departure and who has taken its place. The recent histories of Libya, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Syria, Turkey, and Lebanon are covered.

Ezekiel 38-39 are in play, big time!

How close are we to these events unfolding and prophecy being fulfilled?

These questions and more are answered on This Week in Prophecy.

Russia’s Vladimir Putin Looks to Influence Libya’s Presidential Election???

This Week in Prophecy
Russia’s Vladimir Putin Looks to Influence Libya’s Presidential Election???

https://valortube.com/profile/paulthepoke/

Libya’s presidential election is set for December 24, 2021. It appears Russia is looking to be a “king maker”.

Articles have emerged this week that Moscow is looking to consolidate power in the region by supporting Saif al-Islam Qaddafi. He is the son of the deceased Libyan leader Muammar Muhammad Qaddafi.

Who is Qaddafi’s son? Who is General Haftar? Who is the Wagner company? What is the United States’ response and thoughts on these happenings?

Russia has been moving military hardware into Libya. Benghazi is home to a Russian military base.

Ezekiel’s prophecy from chapters 38-39 is clearly in focus. The prophet stated that Russia will be joined modern day Turkey, Iran, and Libya in its invasion of Israel. The reasons are purely economic… to steal and take plunder.

Ezekiel 38:13 Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all its leaders will say to you, ‘Have you come to seize spoil? Have you assembled your hosts to carry off plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to seize great spoil?’

Ezekiel 38:1 The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog…

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Put will join you, too, with all their weapons.

These ancient names comprise the modern day countries of Russia and Libya.

Magog: Russia

Put: Libya

About 2,500 years ago, the prophet Ezekiel stated Russia will be joined by several countries with their future invasion of Israel from the north. One of those countries is modern day Libya.

Are we watching Gog of Magog attempt to build his coalition?

Tension Between Israel & Iran Rising

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Persia/Elam/Iran, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 2, 2021 by paulthepoke

On July 29th, 2021, a suicide drone attacked an Israeli owned ship the Mercer Street. The attack occurred off of the coast of Oman. The oil tanker was empty. The ship was able to make it to safety with a United States Naval escort.

https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/41767/fatal-attack-on-tanker-off-oman-blamed-on-suicide-drone-report

Photo: ORI World News IL/Twitter

Various reports indicate the Shahed 136 Drone is the vehicle utilized for the attack.

Israel, along with the United Kingdom and the United States, is convinced Iran is responsible for the attack on the Mercer Street vessel. Israeli Prime Minister Bennett’s comments are noted in the tweet below. His video comments are a little over one minute and worth every second. I don’t understand Hebrew, but I do understand tone and body language. Based on Bennett’s history of a no nonsense approach to the enemies of Israel, I suspect Prime Minister Bennett means business.

The government of the United Kingdom held a special Cobra Meeting per a report from Sky News. A Cobra Meeting is held in only “serious focus” of an issue.

UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab blamed Iran and stated the event as “deliberate, targeted” assault which constituted “a clear violation of international law”.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson indicated Iran will “face up to the consequences”.

Johnson was also quoted, “This was clearly an unacceptable and outrageous attack on commercial shipping, a UK national died.”

https://news.sky.com/story/oil-tanker-attack-iranian-ambassador-summoned-to-foreign-office-after-drone-strike-on-mv-mercer-street-12370823

United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken has weighed in on the events. He is confident Iran is responsible for the attack.

“We are in very close contact, in coordination, with the United Kingdom, Israel, Romania and other countries. And there will be a collective response. We have seen a series of actions taken by Iran over many months, including against shipping, so I’m not sure that this particular action is anything new or augurs anything one way or another for the new government. But what it does say is that Iran continues to act with tremendous irresponsibility.” -US Secretary of State Antony Blinken

https://www.i24news.tv/en/news/international/americas/1627931759-us-blinken-vows-collective-response-to-iran-on-mercer-street-attack

As of Tuesday, August 3, 2021, Iran will be swearing in their new president Ebrahim Raisi. He is known as the Tehran Butcher. The name was earned as thousands of political prisoners died at the decisions of the “death committee” which he was the leader. Human rights organizations have charged Raisi with “war crimes against humanity.”

Raisi is a fundamental, conservative Shia hardliner. Previously, he was the chief justice of the Iranian judicial system.

Buckle up…

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

Russian Policy Change Towards Israel?

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , on July 31, 2021 by paulthepoke

Are we watching a changing Russian foreign policy towards Israel? Russia has publicly indicated they are “running out of patience” with Israel’s actions in Syria. Russia is demonstrating a more aggressive posture around the world with military testing and political talk. Russia has introduced anti missile upgrades and technical capabilities in Syria.

Ezekiel 38:1-4 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.

Ezekiel 39:2 And I will turn you about and drive you forward, and bring you up from the uttermost parts of the north, and lead you against the mountains of Israel.

Is God setting the “hook” in the mouth of Gog of Magog?

What does the United States and President Biden have to say?

How do these current events line up with Biblical prophecy? What does the future hold for ancient Magog or modern day Russia?

These ancient names comprise the modern day countries of Russia and Turkey.

Magog: Russia

Meshech, Tubal, Beth-togarmah, Gomer: Turkey

About 2,500 years ago, the prophet Ezekiel stated Russia will be joined by several countries with their future invasion of Israel from the north.

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

What does secular history say about the Magogians? Who are they? In the 7th century BC, Hesiod the Greek poet identified the Scythians as people of modern day southern Russia. Hesiod’s writings pre dated the Ezekiel the prophet.

The Father of History, Herodotus, labeled the descendants of Magog by their Greek name, Scythians. This occurred in the 5th century AD.

About 2,500 years ago, the prophet Ezekiel says Russia will be joined by Turkey, Iran, Libya, possibly Sudan and Ethiopia. There intent is a future invasion of Israel.

On August 15, 2016, Russia acquired its first permanent air base in Syria, the Khmeimim Air Base near Latakia, Syria. The Russians have been building and expanding their military presence in the region since.

Russia, Turkey, and Iran Drawing Closer

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on March 23, 2021 by paulthepoke

March 2021: Leaders from Iran traveled to Turkey and met this past week. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and Turkey’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Mevlut Cavusoglu got together as “brothers”.

Iran’s Zarif commented, “As before, constructive engagement on bilateral and regional issues. Ultimate aim: Apply Iran and Turkey’s experience of 400 years of peace to our region. Together, anything is possible.”

Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan was recently critical of United States President Joe Biden for calling Russia’s President Vladimir Putin a “killer”. Erdogan stated this type of language was “unacceptable” and “not becoming of a president”.

https://www.dailysabah.com/politics/diplomacy/bidens-killer-remarks-for-putin-unacceptable-erdogan

Putin replied to Biden, “It takes one to know one.” Then Putin promptly challenged Biden to a live, public debate. Click on the video from Sky News below as Vladimir wishes Joe “good health”.

This has also drawn the three countries closer together.

Of great interest, Turkey is predominantly a Sunni Muslim country. Turkey is now looking to separate itself from the Muslim Brotherhood (Sunni). Iran is Shia Muslim country. Both of these countries are now working together despite their religious, doctrinal differences.

Their combined goal is to rid the region of United States influence. These three countries are working together in Syria to fight “terrorism”.

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.

These ancient names comprise the modern day countries of Russia, Turkey, and Iran.

Magog: Russia

Meshech, Tubal, Beth-togarmah, Gomer: Turkey

Persia: Iran

About 2,500 years ago, the prophet Ezekiel stated Russia will be joined by several countries including Turkey and Iran with their future invasion of Israel from the north. The trio is together and their ties are getting stronger.

It is not going to work out well for them…

Breaking: Turkish Lira Crashing

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , on March 21, 2021 by paulthepoke

Breaking News: Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan has fired the Central Bank Chief. The market is not responding well to this news.

As of the open of trade on Sunday night in America, Monday morning in Turkey, the Lira has dropped up to 15-17% against the dollar.

There is big time concern this could to lead to a recession in Turkey. Monday could be an interesting day in the markets. Sadly, this means more inflation for the people of Turkey.

chart: Bloomberg

There are many reasons to watch Turkey as a key player in Bible prophecy. Turkey will be part of a coalition lead by Russia along with Iran and others when they will invade Israel from the north.

Recent history tells us that Turkey’s President Erdogan responds to financial crisis with military aggression. Somebody is likely to get attacked…

The brothers of Magog (Meshech, Gomer, and Tubal) appear to point to modern day Turkey.

Ezekiel 38:1-3 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.

Ezekiel 38:6 Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-Togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

Magog was a son of Japheth. Genesis 10:2 The sons of Japheth were Gomer and Magog and Madai and Javan and Tubal and Meshech and Tiras. Japheth was the son of Noah. The sons of Japheth were born after the flood (Genesis 10:1).

Iranian Oil Ships Targeted

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

The prophet Ezekiel says Russia will be joined by several countries with their future invasion of Israel (Ezekiel 38-39). One of those countries will be Persia. The country was known as Persia until the name change in the 20th century. This is modern day Iran…

Google Maps

March 2021: News outlets (including the Middle East Eye, Haaretz, and The Times of Israel) around the Middle East are quoting a Wall St. Journal article. The Wall St. Journal has quoted “US and regional officials.”

Reuters

At least 12 Iranian oil tankers or ships containing Iranian freight have been targeted by Israel. The Iranian ships are typically bound for Syria. This has been occurring since 2019. To date, none of the Iranian vessels have been sunk.

“Officials” suggested Israel is looking to stop the flow of money to fund terrorism. Financial resources “are funding extremism in the Middle East”.

Israel has blamed Iran for an attack on an Israeli cargo ship the MV Helios Ray.

Iran blames Israel for a series of mysterious explosions at nuclear facilities along with the execution of top nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.

Factions of Israeli representatives also blame Iran for a massive oil spill that washed a shore on the Mediterranean coast.

Israel has blasted Iranian supported Hezbollah targets in Lebanon and Syria.

The altercations have taken place in the Red Sea, the Persian Gulf, and the Mediterranean Sea.

Both Iran and Israel refused to comment on the recent history.

United States President Biden is looking to rejoin the nuclear deal between world powers and Iran. And so the plot thickens.
