Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gaza Strip/Philistia, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on November 12, 2019 by paulthepoke

November 2019: This is Israel Defense Forces (IDF) new slogan against Jihad.

#JiHadEnough

This is a developing and breaking story out of the Gaza Strip. 200+ rockets have been fired into Israel. The IDF estimates 90% have been intercepted.

Islamic Jihad Leader of Gaza, Baha Abu Al Ata has been targeted by the IDF. Baha Abu Al Ata is no longer the leader of Islamic Jihad in Gaza.

Below is a tweet from the IDF summarizing recent military activity in and around the Gaza Strip.

See Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks in the Twitter link below.

Two witnesses say there will come a time when the LORD has #JiHadEnough…

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.

Ezekiel 25:15-17 Thus says the Lord God, “Because the Philistines have acted in revenge and have taken vengeance with scorn of soul to destroy with everlasting enmity,” therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I will stretch out My hand against the Philistines, even cut off the Cherethites and destroy the remnant of the seacoast. I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes; and they will know that I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance on them.”

June 25, 2019, Manama, Bahrain: Under the guise of Jared Kushner, the Peace to Prosperity work shop has begun. Kushner has dubbed the peace plan as the “opportunity of the century”.

Kushner opened the conference with a speech.

“Today is not about political issues. The goal of this workshop is to begin thinking about these challenges in a new way. To work together to develop a concrete plan to try to achieve it. Imagine a new reality in the Middle East … Imagine a bustling tourist center in Gaza and the West Bank. Imagine people and goods flowing securely throughout the region as people become more prosperous. This is not a stretch, it is the historic legacy of the Middle East.” -Jared Kushner

See the link below courtesy of i24 News for Kushner’s complete comments. The speech is a little over 10 minutes.

Ezekiel 7:19 They cast their silver into the streets, and their gold is like an unclean thing. Their silver and gold are not able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD. They cannot satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs with it. For it was the stumbling block of their iniquity.

Zephaniah 1:18 Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to deliver them on the day of the LORD’S wrath; and all the earth will be devoured in the fire of His jealousy, for He will make a complete end, indeed a terrifying one, of all the inhabitants of the earth.

Kushner Unveils Economic Portion of Middle East Peace Plan, June 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gaza Strip/Philistia, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on June 22, 2019 by paulthepoke

The economic details of the Middle East Peace plan were released by Senior White House Adviser Jared Kushner. The plan calls for $50 billion to be sent to Middle East countries. $28 billion are scheduled to go to the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Details of the plan break down which country gets how much and specific projects are named. Currently, the plan is expected to take 10 years to implement.

The plan is being compared to the Marshall Plan for western Europe after World War II.

“One of the things that they did successfully (Marshall Plan) is that they didn’t just give aid but they infused money into the private sector and they created an environment in which businesses could thrive and capital could be invested. This is a similar notion.”

“If you can also get that whole region starting to lift, and if you can get a quicker flow of goods and people in all the different areas that are necessary in industry instead of bullets and munitions and war, then I think that will really lead to a big increase in investment in the area and more jobs and better quality of life and hopefully more peace along with it.” -Jared Kushner

The White House communicated via Twitter the plan called Peace to Prosperity. The economic plan is 40 pages. See the link below.

The economic plan is divided into 4 sections: Overview, Unleashing Economic Potential, Empowering the Palestinian People, and Enhancing Palestinian Governance.

See the link below for the specifics and details.

https://www.whitehouse.gov/peacetoprosperity/empowering-palestinian-people/

The plan is reported to have 179 economic projects. There are 96 pages worth of details and financing information. Economic programs and projects of the plan are noted in the link below.

https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/MEP_programsandprojects.pdf

Jared Kushner also conducted an interview with Reuters News. The interview is 4 minutes and 35 seconds. Click on the link below for Kushner’s comments.

Fund raising will be a part of the scheduled “workshop”. Wealthy Arab Gulf states are being encouraged to make contributions in funding the plan. The United States is also promising to assist with finances.

“The reason we’re calling this a workshop and not a conference is because we want to get feedback and hopefully finalize it so that we can then coordinate a lot of the aid efforts and investing efforts to really drive these results.” -Jared Kushner

The political piece of the plan is scheduled to be released at a later date. This is likely to occur after Israeli elections on September 17, 2019.

Nobody is making the claim, “There is peace and security.” But they are starting to talk about it with intent and purpose.

1 Thessalonians 5:3 While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

We are working, and will continue to work, to restore quiet and security to the residents of the south.” – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Trend Update: Tension Mounts in Gaza Strip… Again, June 2018

Posted in Gaza Strip/Philistia, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 20, 2018 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 25:15-17 Thus says the Lord God, “Because the Philistines have acted in revenge and have taken vengeance with scorn of soul to destroy with everlasting enmity,” therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I will stretch out My hand against the Philistines, even cut off the Cherethites and destroy the remnant of the seacoast. I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes; and they will know that I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance on them.”

Ancient Philistia or the Philistines are the people who occupied what is the modern day Gaza Strip. The reference to the Cherethites is thought to be a group of people from the island of Crete. Historically, they relocated to Philistia. At one time, the Cherethites were security for King David of Israel. The name in the Hebrew means “executioners”.

See video link below for analysis and geography.

June 20, 2018: Military activity is increasing in and around the Gaza Strip again. Israel has responded to a variety of arson tactics and missiles utilized by terrorists.

Per Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), Hamas has fired 45 plus rockets and mortars into Israel. Targets include neighborhoods, private property, and schools. Civilians, not military installations, were targeted.

Israel responded with 3 waves of attacks on Hamas military targets.

Terrorist activity has continued for weeks from the Gaza Strip. Palestinians have attached explosives to different kinds of aerial devices which fly into Israel. The wind from the Mediterranean Sea blows the air born devices into Israel. As a result, fires have destroyed private property and crops.

The term “device” is used loosely. These “devices” include kites, birthday balloons, and condoms. Explosives are attached. In some cases, a metal mesh pouch will hold burning coal or soaked flammable rags. The wind driven “devices” are crudely constructed but effective.

“They are not toys, they are weapons that are intended to kill and inflict damage,” IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus.

A particular curiosity is the use of condoms. Where did they come from? The United Nations World Health Organization denies distributing condoms to the Palestinians… allegedly.

Palestinian condom

Palestinian prepares a condom & explosives for launch into Israel.

Israel has countered the “devices” from the Gaza Strip by utilizing drones. Israel is looking to stop helium deliveries to the Palestinian people. Warning shots are being fired at manufacturers of such “devices”.

“If someone shoots at your family, you shoot at him… if someone sends burning and exploding balloons, you shoot at him. It is so obvious that I find it hard to believe that I need to explain,” Education Minister Naftali Bennett.

Trend Update: Hamas Attacks Israeli Preschool, May 2018

Posted in Gaza Strip/Philistia, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 29, 2018 by paulthepoke

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.

May 29, 2018: Hamas and Islamic Jihad continue to fire multiple rounds of mortar shells into southern Israel. Sirens continue to blare across southern Israel. This is reported to be the heaviest amount of Gaza mortar fire in close to four years.

 

“Israel will extract a heavy price from anyone who tries to harm it,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Outrage was expressed by politicians across Israel. The largest grievance filed was over Hamas targeting a preschool.

“Shooting mortars at a preschool crosses a serious red line. We cannot allow terrorist organizations to hurt and undermine the security of the children and other residents of the Gaza envelope towns.” Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein

See video link for additional geography and analysis.

 

UN Mideast Envoy Nickolay Mladenov expressed condemnation over targeting a preschool.

“…deeply concerned by the indiscriminate firing of rockets by Palestinian militants from Gaza towards communities in southern Israel…. hit in the immediate vicinity of a kindergarten and could have killed or injured children. Such attacks are unacceptable and undermine the serious efforts by the international community to improve the situation in Gaza.” UN Mideast Envoy Nickolay Mladenov

 

Israel is responding…

Prime Minister Netanyahu took the time to address Israeli concerns with Iran in the northern part of Israel in the Golan Heights.

“We will not allow Iran to entrench itself in Syria and act against us, and to manufacture weapons in Lebanon. Iran needs to leave Syria entirely. In any event, we will act according to our interests, with or without understandings. We will defend ourselves by ourselves, since we are determined to ensure our future.” -Benjamin Netanyahu
