Jared Kushner Creates… “Abraham Accords Institute for Peace”

May 5, 2021: Breaking News… Former Advisor to President Trump, Jared Kushner has created the “Abraham Accords Institute for Peace”. The focus of the Institute is to improve and deepen relationships between Israel and the participants of the “Circle of Peace”, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco.

Kushner has enlisted the talents of former US envoy Avi Berkowitz and ambassadors to the United States from Bahrain, the UAE and Israel.

Also joining Kushner will be Israeli-American businessman Haim Saban. Mr. Saban is a supporter of the Democrat Party.

The Abraham Accords Institute for Peace is of course non partisan. The Institute’s stated goal is to, “intend to add additional Democrats to the group as well as international advisers from the region.”

Let me be clear. I am not saying Jared Kushner is the antichrist. Frankly, we need more “peace deals” with Israel. Then we need a man “to confirm the covenant with many” (Daniel 9). I am saying the rapture and the tribulation are going to occur. I am saying we should pay attention! We should be ready for the return of our Lord, Jesus Christ! He is coming…

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.

Ask God Into Your Heart… Paul Beverly

We all get conflicted about what’s in our heart at times. Pray about it, & then don’t be afraid to follow your heart. God will guide you to His fulfillment. Be confident in where it leads you. If it is truly what God has put in your heart, you will be rewarded greatly. Do what is in your heart. The Lord has put it there. Nobody ever got their reward by standing still. Have hope & move forward. Go for it, because God’s got your back.

Proverbs 16:9 The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.

Luke 12:34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Have a great and rewarding week my friends!!!

The Real Deal… Joshua of Ghana

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Joshua Ghana with tags , , , , , , on May 2, 2021 by paulthepoke

TEXT: PSALM 19:7-14

Key verse: “More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb” -Psalm 19:10

Over the centuries and ages, nations and communities have gone to war for spoils in the form of gold, silver and for territories bearing rich mineral resources and promising vast untapped wealth. Africa was violently balkanized between the 19th and 20th centuries because of her enormous potential riches. Till today, there is still more strife on the continent as a result of the quest for the control of riches. But the word of God insists that mankind could save itself needless heartache, loss and stress if it follows the counsel of its Creator.

“The statutes of the LORD are right… More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.” Psalm 19:8,10,11

Not only is the way prescribed in the Bible better; when we keep to it, there will not be payback of regrets as man has witnessed in struggles over wealth.

There is a double portion of blessing packed into adhering to God’s precepts. While it offers far more than what this world gives, it also warns about what the Lord requires to enable one make heaven. Now, knowledge of that is certainly a precious possession, weightier and nobler than all the wealth of the world.

Man has incurred much loss through the centuries for placing earthly earnings above God’s laws. But the real and perfect deal is the word of God, which suffices for peace and contentment here on earth and for eternity with Christ Jesus in heaven.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Aim for heaven’s golden streets, not ephemeral earthly earnings.

Not In Our Community, Combatting Sex Trafficking… Christine McDonald

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Christine "Clarity" McDonald with tags , , on April 30, 2021 by paulthepoke

Non-profit agencies, law enforcement, government officials and area stakeholders have joined forces to combat sex trafficking and prostitution in Northeast Kansas City, specifically on Independence Avenue.

The new initiative, which was introduced on April 23, includes billboards and street signs in areas known for activity, circulating photos of “Johns” – buyers of sex – and implementing reform strategies, and resources to help those who are being trafficked.

“This strategy is going to say, ‘Not in our community, not in our city. Not now, not ever, will we allow you to come in and pay for our people. If there wasn’t demand, there would not be traffickers exploiting our vulnerable.'”

Locust Update: Swarms in Israel and Lebanon, Spring 2021

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2021 by paulthepoke

Joel 1:4 What the gnawing locust has left, the swarming locust has eaten; and what the swarming locust has left, the creeping locust has eaten; and what the creeping locust has left, the stripping locust has eaten.

A characteristic of the end times scenario is locust infiltration into Israel on a massive scale. The prophet Joel warns of a time when food production from the land will be scarce. Locusts will devour food and vegetation.

April 2021: Locust swarms have moved into southern Israel near Eilat. The port city is located on the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea. Granted, this is as far south as one can go in Israel, but locusts have made an appearance in the Promised Land. Everyone relax, animals and humans are not in harm’s way according to the experts.

World Atlas

Northeast Lebanon: Winds from Saudi Arabia have blown locusts into Lebanon. The Lebanese Army is using helicopters and pesticides to combat the situation.

“It is a very rare occurrence… the breeding grounds were on the Red Sea coast, Saudi Arabia’s northern coast, so they were blown in through Jordan and Syria. But so far it is under control and I certainly see nothing to panic about.” -Maurice Saade, UN Food and Agriculture Representative Lebanon

Locust’s Nutritional Facts:

  1. high in protein
  2. protect the human body against the harmful effects of radiation
  3. suppress the growth of cancer cells
  4. prevents the development of heart attack and stroke by boosting the effect of blood-thinning drugs
  5. increases immunity levels
  6. helps control cholesterol levels
  7. combat inflammatory processes
  8. enhances regeneration of tissues.

Is there a hint of the prophetic future with benefits of a locust diet? Fights the effects of radiation? Suppresses cancer? Enhances tissue regeneration? Increases immunity?

Sounds like an antidote to nuclear exposure and disease to me. Eat up! The locust is kosher.

Leviticus 11:22 These of them you may eat: the locust in its kinds, and the devastating locust in its kinds, and the cricket in its kinds, and the grasshopper in its kinds.

There Shall Be Seven Weeks: Show Bread

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Angels with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 25, 2021 by paulthepoke

Daniel 9:25b …there shall be seven weeks…

The context of this series of posts is the course of the Jewish people for the initial 49 years of the 483 year period communicated from the angel Gabriel to the prophet Daniel. The city of Jerusalem has been rebuilt post exile. These events are covered in Nehemiah 8-13. Israel is returning to God’s Law. The focus is Temple worship service. Up first is the showbread or shewbread.

Nehemiah 10:33a …for the showbread…

Simply put the term for showbread is “bread” in the original Hebrew. The Hebrew term is lechem. The word is also translated as food or meal. It is bread made from the grain of barley, wheat, or corn.

The original source for the showbread comes from Leviticus 24.

Leviticus 24:5-9 “You shall take fine flour and bake twelve loaves from it; two tenths of an ephah shall be in each loaf. And you shall set them in two piles, six in a pile, on the table of pure gold before the LORD. And you shall put pure frankincense on each pile, that it may go with the bread as a memorial portion as a food offering to the LORD. Every Sabbath day Aaron shall arrange it before the LORD regularly; it is from the people of Israel as a covenant forever. And it shall be for Aaron and his sons, and they shall eat it in a holy place, since it is for him a most holy portion out of the LORD’s food offerings, a perpetual due.”

Let’s take a look at the specifics of the verses above from Leviticus 24.

There are 12 loaves of bread, 2 piles of 6. The point of the bread is a memorial portion as a food offering to the LORD.

The text makes it very clear. This is to be done every week on the Sabbath by the descendants of Aaron or the Levites. The bread is to be arranged regularly. It is a covenant forever for the priests. The bread is to be presented weekly as a perpetual due.

Fast forward roughly 1,440 years from Moses to Jesus. Christ is about to give the Pharisees more than they can handle. Jesus, of course, is going to choose the Sabbath to make a point.

Matthew 12:1-7 At that time Jesus went through the grain fields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry, and they began to pluck heads of grain and to eat. But when the Pharisees saw it, they said to him, “Look, your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath.” He said to them, “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, and those who were with him: how he entered the house of God and ate the bread of the Presence, which it was not lawful for him to eat nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests? Or have you not read in the Law how on the Sabbath the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath and are guiltless? I tell you, something greater than the temple is here. And if you had known what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless.

If one is hungry, they can eat, even on the Sabbath. The disciples were hungry. It is not illegal to eat on the Sabbath.

But yet, the Pharisees wanted to make an issue of the situation. Jesus chose to use the illegal and sinful example of King David (See 1 Samuel 21 for the incident). David lied and manipulated the situation. Christ also pointed out the hypocrisy of the priests.

Jesus is the Lord. The showbread is a food offering to the LORD. The only crime Jesus committed is He broke the “law” of the Pharisees. Jesus is not breaking the law by eating the showbread on the Sabbath. Taking care of your friends with provision is more important than following a man made tradition.

Matthew 12:8 For the Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath.”

Blood of Jesus on the Cross, Pōhutukawa… Rodna Epley

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gospel, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 23, 2021 by paulthepoke

This earth truly does reveal God’s glory everywhere in creation, and it tells the story of Jesus. Everything God made (and He made everything through Jesus) has His signature on it.

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.” (Psalm 19:1-4)

This beautiful flower is called “Blood of Jesus on the Cross” and is native to New Zealand. It grows on a tree called the Pōhutukawa or the New Zealand Christmas bush. The flower itself is remarkable. Not only is there a cross in the center, but the blood of Jesus is displayed in the mass of filaments that splay out from the cross as if to shower upon the whole world. We have redemption through Jesus’ blood, the forgiveness of sins. Also notice the tiny anthers on the end of each red filament that contain the pollen. They look like tiny pieces of flesh or bread that was broken for the life of the world. Jesus was the bread of life broken and multiplied to feed all who want eternal life.

Because of the cross we can now be reconciled to the Father through Christ Jesus.

“Then Jesus said…Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the bread which came down from heaven—not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.” (John 6:53-58)

“The Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.” (1 Corinthians 11:23,26)

“He (Jesus) who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.’ Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20)

Breaking: Israeli Nuclear Facility at Dimona Targeted???

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy with tags , , , , , on April 21, 2021 by paulthepoke

April 21, 2021: Rocket sirens have been sounded in the Negev or the southern portion of Israel near the Dimona Nuclear Facility. Explosions have been seen and heard near the nuclear site.

Google Earth

The Israeli military is claiming this is not an attack on their nuclear facility but a misfire. They claim the rocket from Syria was targeting an airplane in the northern part of the country in the Golan Heights.

IDF Spokesperson Hidai Zilberman made the following comment.

“There was no intention of hitting the nuclear reactor in Dimona.”

The IDF was very clear regarding the specs of the missile. It was Russian-made SA-5 surface-to-air missile weighing several thousand kilograms with a 200-kilogram warhead.

As of this post, the IDF was still gathering intel on the matter.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/rocket-alert-sirens-sound-near-dimona-blasts-felt-in-central-israel-jerusalem/

Earlier, the day before, a significant explosion occurred at the Tomer military facility in central Israel. The factory is home to secret weapons, missile technologies, and jet propulsion studies.

Israel states this was the result of routine tests. Injuries and causalities were not reported.

A Tomer spokesperson indicated, “This was a controlled test with no exceptional circumstances.”

The back drop of the story is escalating military action and tension between Israel and Iran.

Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD and their vindication from me, declares the LORD.”

Love More, Judge Less… Paul Beverly

Passing judgement on a person’s sin, makes you an equal sinner. God didn’t make a list of sins & say one was worse than the other. He did however say that the greatest thing we can do is love. Let’s all love more…

James 4:12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you who judge your neighbor?

James 2:10 For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become guilty of all of it.

Matthew 22:37-40 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” -Jesus

Have a loving week my friends!!!
