This Week in Prophecy: Half Shekel, UFO Hearing, Russian Diplomacy, More Lawlessness

Exodus 30:13-16 This is what everyone who is numbered shall give: half a shekel according to the shekel of the sanctuary (the shekel is twenty gerahs), half a shekel as a contribution to the Lord. Everyone who is numbered, from twenty years old and over, shall give the contribution to the Lord. The rich shall not pay more and the poor shall not pay less than the half shekel, when you give the contribution to the Lord to make atonement for yourselves. You shall take the atonement money from the sons of Israel and shall give it for the service of the tent of meeting, that it may be a memorial for the sons of Israel before the Lord, to make atonement for yourselves.”

Our economic status does not matter. We are all equal before God.

A rare silver half-shekel coin inscribed with the words “The Holy Jerusalem” in Hebrew and dated to 66/67 CE  was discovered in the Ein Gedi nature reserve in the Judean Desert.

Ezekiel 38:1, 2, 5, 6 Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him… Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you.

1 Timothy 1:8-11 Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it legitimately. We realize that law is not enacted for the righteous, but for the lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinful, for the unholy and profane, for killers of father or mother, for murderers, for the sexually immoral, for homosexuals, for slave traders and liars and perjurers, and for anyone else who is averse to sound teaching that agrees with the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted.

This Week in Prophecy: Lawlessness; Magog’s Mess; Taiwan

Matthew 24:12 Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.

France: Day 5 of the riots and counting. France is on fire. 719 and counting have been arrested across France.

This has been the response to the death of Nahel Merzouk, a 17 year old of Algerian descent. He was shot by the police during a traffic stop. The incident occurred in the Parisian suburb of Nanterre. Nahel played rugby and enjoyed the rapper Jul.

Matthew 13:40-42 So just as the tares are gathered up and burned with fire, so shall it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Magog and friends… Ezekiel 38:6b …from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

One week later, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko is talking out of both sides of his mouth.

“As we move along, we become more and more convinced that they (the weapons) must be stationed here, in Belarus, in a reliable place. I am certain that we will never have to use them while they are here. And no enemy will ever set foot on our land.” -President Alexander Lukashenko

Previously, Lukashenko indicated he would be willing to use nuclear weapons.

One thing is clear, Belarus does possess nuclear weapons and they are going to be receiving more from Russia by the end of 2023.

This Week in Prophecy: Israel & Egypt Border; Med Gas; Erdogan Wins; BRICS Currency; God?

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Egypt/Nile River, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 4, 2023 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:3-4 …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.

Israel discovers more natural gas in the Mediterranean Sea. The Katlan gas field has an estimated 68 billion cubic meters (BCM) of natural gas. When combining the Leviathan, Tamar, Karish, and Tanin gas fields, Israel has over 1,000 BCM of natural gas reserves. Israel consumes approximately 13 BCM per year. More bait to set the hooks (plural) in Gog’s jaw.

Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan was re elected for five more years. Kudos for the transparency!

This Week in Prophecy: Gaza Strip, Israel’s 75th, Magog’s Gang, Pacific Theater

Zephaniah 2:4-5 For Gaza shall be deserted, and Ashkelon shall become a desolation; Ashdod’s people shall be driven out at noon, and Ekron shall be uprooted. Woe to you inhabitants of the seacoast, you nation of the Cherethites! The word of the LORD is against you, O Canaan, land of the Philistines; and I will destroy you until no inhabitant is left.

As usual, the rocket exchange between the Palestinians and the Israelis is all about perspective.

The events appear to be initiated by the death of Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s Khader Adnan. He was on a hunger strike for 86 days. Adnan was arrested in Israel on terrorism charges. When it was announced he died, four rockets were launched from Gaza. Israel responded. Then the two sides exchanged volleys.

A cease fire is in place for now…

Isaiah 66:7-8 Before she was in labor she gave birth; before her pain came upon her she delivered a son. Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day?

  • Russia plans to increase gas exports to China by 50% this year, from 15 to 22 billion cubic meters.
  • This shift towards China is part of Russia’s move away from the West due to sanctions.
  • The Chinese currency accounted for 23% of Russian import payments last year, up from 4% in the previous year.

“The yuan and ruble are in high demand, so that vector will continue. China already pays in yuan for gas and partially for oil, there are settlements in the ruble as well,” Alexander Novak, Russian Deputy Prime Minister.

On This Week in Prophecy…

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

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

Fighting has broken out in the capital of Khartoum, Sudan. The Sudanese army has engaged with the Rapid Support Forces (RSF). The RSF has claimed to have captured Egyptian military forces.

Violence is spreading throughout the country.

As of this report, fifty seven civilians on the ground have been killed. Air travel to Sudan has been stopped. A passenger plane has been hit by a projectile. Two people aboard the plane have been killed.

The World Food Program has stopped services after three staff were killed.

Sudan’s Joint Chiefs of Staff says that there will be no negotiations or dialogue before the dissolution of the Rapid Support Forces (RSF). – Reuters

Remember, Sudan is a member of the Abraham Accords with Israel.

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 modern day Sudan.

Exodus 10:4 Or else, if you refuse to let My people go, behold, tomorrow I will bring locusts into your territory.

As Ramadan comes to a close… this happened. The Great Mosque in Mecca was inundated with locusts. There may have been a few cockroaches as well.

Fort Lauderdale, FL: This past Wednesday, 25 inches of rain fell in less than 24 hours. The airport was closed and looked like a lake.

The event is incredibly rare. It has been viewed as a 1-in-1,000-year event.

“April is still considered the dry season in southern Florida with Fort Lauderdale averaging only 3.70 inches of rain for the month of April. The rainiest time in South Florida is from June through September.” AccuWeather Meteorologist Alex DaSilva.

One World Currency and Economy

The DE dollarization Movement has begun and effectively started at the beginning of April, 2023. The clock towards Revelation 13 has begun ticking in earnest.

Revelation 13:16-17 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.

Brazilian President Lula was speaking at the New Development Bank of Shanghai, China.

“Why can’t we do trade based on our own currencies? Who was it that decided that the dollar was the currency after the disappearance of the gold standard? Why can’t a bank like that of the BRICS have a currency to finance trade relations between Brazil and China, between Brazil and other countries? It’s difficult because we are unaccustomed. Everyone depends on just one currency.” Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, President, Brazil.

This Week in Prophecy: Passover, De-dollarization, Oil, CBDC’s, Finland Joins NATO, Papua New Guinea Quake, Innocent Until Proven Guilty

Exodus 12:6 You shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month, then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel is to slaughter it at twilight.

The Passover Sacrifice took place near the Dung Gate in Jerusalem. The Dung Gate is located south of the Western Wall and looks over the City of David.

Rafael Morris of the Returning to the Mount movement was held by local authorities under suspicion for potentially sacrificing a Paschal Lamb on the Temple Mount. This year, the Returning to the Mount movement raised the anti to 20,000 shekels (roughly $5,600) for anyone attempting or finishing the sacrifice on the Temple Mount.

Revelation 6:6b “…and do not harm the oil and wine.”

OPEC and Russia agreed to cut oil production by 1.6 million barrels per day to the global supply. Oil immediately spiked 6-8% in pre market trading.

The Biblical countries in the end times scenario are involved. Israel, Russia, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, China and arguably India as a king of the east.

China is asserting itself big time in the Middle East! China is brokering “peace” between ancient rivals like Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Iran.
