Israel & Sudan Agree to Peace, October 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on October 24, 2020 by paulthepoke

Washington, D.C., October 23, 2020: President Donald Trump announced yet another historic peace deal. This time, Israel and Sudan are partners. Sudan has been entered as a member of the expanding Abraham Accords.

President Trump made the announcement with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and Sudan’s Chairman of the Sovereignty Council General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan on a conference call. Below is a YouTube link of the press conference from the White House.

The focus of the plan is cooperation in agriculture, economy, trade, aviation, and migration issues.

President Trump says there are more Muslim nations looking to join the Abraham Accords including possibly Iran.

President Trump’s Senior Advisor Jared Kushner weighed in with his comments.

November 2017: Russian President Vladimir Putin invited then Sudan President Omar al-Bashir to Sochi for a meeting. Sudan was asking for Russian protection against American aggression. The Sudan president was removed in a coup. He was wanted by the International Criminal Court for genocide and war crimes. Omar al-Bashir is currently in jail for several accounts of corruption.

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.

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

With this announcement, we have some intrigue on Magog’s southern front…

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

  • “This day is a pivot of history. It heralds a new dawn of peace,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel said.
  • “Peace requires courage, and shaping the future requires knowledge,” Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates said. “We have come today to tell the world that this is our approach.”
  • “Today is a truly historic occasion—a moment of hope and opportunity for all the peoples of the Middle East,” Abdullatif bin Rashid Al-Zayani of Bahrain said.
  • “The people of the Middle East will no longer allow hatred of Israel to be fomented as an excuse for radicalism or extremism. After decades of division and conflict, we mark the dawn of a new Middle East,” President Trump said.

Prior to the signing ceremony, President Trump commented on the momentum of peace in the Middle East.

“We’re very far down the road with about five additional countries… Frankly, I think we could have had them here today. We’ll have at least five or six countries coming along very quickly… They want to see peace. They’ve been fighting for a long time… They’re warring countries but they’re tired of fighting. You’re going to see a lot of very great activity. It’s going to be peace in the Middle East. Most of the countries… in the Middle East want to sign this deal.”

Trump later went on to say up to nine (9) countries look to normalize relations with Israel.

Bahrain Joins the Circle of Peace, September 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on September 11, 2020 by paulthepoke

Washington, D.C., September 11, 2020: United States President Donald Trump has announced a historic achievement in Middle East Peace between Israel and Bahrain. The two countries have agreed to full diplomatic relations.

Next Tuesday, September 15, President Trump will be hosting leaders from Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain. They will meet and sign accords of peace in Washington, D.C.

Back in June 2019, Bahrain was the host country for the White House “Peace for Prosperity” economic conference. Leaders from around the Middle East and Israel were in attendance.

President Trump took to Twitter for the announcement. Below is the official statement coming from the United States, Israel, and Bahrain.

Of note, Trump Senior Advisor Jared Kushner received a lot of ink from the Jerusalem Post in their article. Here are some quotes from Kushner’s press conference.

“There’s a new momentum and new hopefulness in the Middle East. The agreement that we made with the United Arab Emirates and Israel was even more popular than we expected, which is why this next agreement came so quickly. We were not sure what the reaction would be, but it’s been overwhelmingly positive. And more and more countries are rushing to try to figure out how they can do good things for their citizens and create a paradigm for a much more peaceful and prosperous future.”

“The leaders in the region recognize that the approach that’s been taken in the past hasn’t worked and they realize that there are people want to see a more vibrant and exciting future. I do believe that it’s an inevitability that all countries in the Middle East will normalize relations with Israel. It’s a very hard thing. I don’t know the timing on it, but I think people want to see the Middle East move forward. They want to seize opportunity.”

“I think that this will help reduce tension in the Muslim world and allow people to separate the Palestinian issue from their own national interests, from their foreign policy, which should be focused on their domestic priorities. And so I think you’re going to continue to see momentum.” -Presidential Senior Adviser, Jared Kushner

The Palestinians have denounced the Israel/Bahrain peace plan. They called it a “stab in the back”.

Iran now has two countries across the Persian Gulf who are close friends with Israel.

Daniel 9:27 And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.

For the record, it is my position President Donald Trump is not the antichrist. Trump is not an internationally loved and respected figure. Too many people want him completely removed from the equation.

It seems to be plausible conjecture we are in the process of gathering “many” to confirm “a strong covenant” in the future. It would appear “he” is not on the scene just yet.

At this time, I don’t think Kushner is the antichrist either. See my previous post below.

More Peace on the Horizon, September 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on September 1, 2020 by paulthepoke

United Arab Emirates, September 1, 2020: White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner was being interviewed on UAE WAM News. Kushner was asked if all 22 Arab League states would eventually recognize Israel. His answer, “100%”.

Below are quotes from Kushner during the interview.

“I believe that it is logical for them to do it and I believe it is the right thing to do over time. I think thanks to the UAE leadership there will be a much bigger coalition. (There will be) what I call ‘a vocal majority’ that will be in favor of normalizing. I think the vocal minority who have been against it will be more and more isolated in the region.”

“Obviously anything could happen, but the reality is that a lot of people are envious of the move that the United Arab Emirates has made. We don’t solve problems by not talking to each other. So, normalizing relations and allowing people-to-people and business exchanges will only make the Middle East stronger and a more stable place.”

Arab countries continue to need promises that Israel will not expand into the West Bank. By all accounts, Israel has indicated they will not develop the region.

“We cannot speculate on future Israeli actions. We have assurances from the US on this, and through our trilateral dialogue,” Jamal al-Musharakh, Director of the Emirati Foreign Ministry’s Policy Planning Department.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/kushner-vocal-minority-against-uae-normalization-will-become-more-isolated/

Kushner was not done. Multiple news agencies are reporting the he and the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman conducted meetings.

Kushner is also reported to be making trips to multiple Arab states during his trip to the region.

There are many who think Jared Kushner is the antichrist. For now, I do not…

2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him, we ask you, brothers, not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming. The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

  1. The Day of the Lord is not here. Currently (September 2020), we are not in the tribulation.
  2. …so that he takes his seat in the temple of God… Currently, there is no temple.
  3. …proclaiming himself to be God. Jared Kushner is not claiming to be God.
  4. what is restraining him nowOnly he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. Currently, the Holy Spirit remains on earth indwelled in believers of Jesus Christ, the church. When the church is snatched away or raptured…
  5. And then the lawless one will be revealed. It is simply not time.
  6. The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception… Jared Kushner is not performing miracles.

But, Jared Kushner is making headlines. So I will continue to report because this is looming.

Daniel 9:27 And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.

1 Thessalonians 5:3 While people are saying, “Peace and security,” destruction will come upon them suddenly, like labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

Netanyahu: “Peace Favors Israel.” August 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , on August 30, 2020 by paulthepoke

August 30, 2020, Jerusalem: It would be a pleasure to host all of you in Jerusalem on any day, but it’s a special pleasure to do so today, because tomorrow you will be on the first-ever Israeli commercial flight to the UAE, together with a high-level Israeli delegation. 

The day will come, and it won’t be far away, when we will ask: How could it have been any other way? Because today’s breakthroughs will become tomorrow’s norms. It will pave the way for other countries to normalize their ties with Israel. -Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

And we are trending towards Gabriel’s message to Daniel…

Daniel 9:27 And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.

Israel and United Arab Emirates Reach Peace Deal, August 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on August 13, 2020 by paulthepoke

August 13, 2020: Israel and the United Arab Emirates have signed a historic peace treaty today. The deal is known as the Abraham Accord.

The United Arab Emirates is lead by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Israel was represented by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. United States President Donald Trump announced the “Historic Peace Agreement”.

This treaty marks the third peace agreement with Israel since 1948. Israel has previously signed peace accords with Egypt (March 1979) and Jordan (July 1994).

Relations between the two countries are to be normalized in diplomacy, trade, and regional security. Under the plan, Israel has agreed to stop annexation of Palestinian territories.

President Trump is hopeful there will be more peace deals to come with Israel and other Arab countries.

White House advisor Jared Kushner indicated the agreement is the result of a year and a half of discussions.

January 28, 2020: President Trump has revealed his Deal of the Century to address the Palestinian Israeli Conflict. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is on board with the plan.

Below are maps of a future Palestine and a future Israel if the Palestinians would be agreeable to sign the peace deal.

Here are the highlights of the plan.

  • A series of tunnels and bridges would connect Palestinian lands.
  • Jerusalem would remain undivided.
  • East Jerusalem would be the capital of a future Palestine.
  • Status quo for the religious sites on the Temple Mount.
  • “All Muslims who come in peace will be welcome to visit and pray at the al-Aqsa Mosque”.
  • A high tech industrial and manufacturing zone would be provided for the Palestinians.
  • Residential and agricultural area would be provided for the Palestinians.
  • Israel maintains control of all borders.
  • Israel will manage security from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.

The Palestinians have rejected the plan. The United Nations has rejected the deal.

Prophetically speaking, this is not “the covenant“. For starters, there is no Temple and there is no sacrificial system in place. There is no timeline in Trump’s plan. The covenant above is for one week or a set of seven or seven years.

We are not there yet…

Prime Minister Netanyahu to Annex the West Bank With Election Win, September 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2019 by paulthepoke

Joshua 1:2-3 “Moses my servant is dead. Now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land that I am giving to them, to the people of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses.

September 10, 2019: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made his “dramatic announcement”. If Netanyahu emerges victorious in the upcoming elections on September 17, he plans to annex settlements in the West Bank.

“This is the eastern shield that ensures that we will never return to being a country with a width of a few kilometers. This map guarantees strategic depth to Israel. It defines our eastern border.”

There are an estimated 30 settlements and 8,000 residents that would come under Israeli sovereignty.

Netanyahu plans to coordinate with the United States. President Donald Trump has promised to deliver his peace plan after elections on September 17.

“Out of respect for President Trump and out of great faith in our friendship, I’ll wait before applying sovereignty over settlements until the presentation of the diplomatic plan of the [US] president. As much as is possible, I want to apply sovereignty over settlements and other areas in maximum coordination with the U.S.,” Prime Minister Netanyahu.

“We will release our Vision for Peace after the Israeli election and work to determine the best path forward to bring long sought security, opportunity and stability to the region,” Trump Administration Spokesman.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/in-campaign-pitch-netanyahu-vows-to-annex-jordan-valley-if-reelected/

The United Nations (UN) is not happy with today’s proclamation.

“The secretary-general’s position has always been clear: unilateral actions are not helpful in the peace process. Any Israeli decision to impose its laws, jurisdictions and administration in the occupied West Bank is without any international legal effect. Such a prospect would be devastating to the potential of reviving negotiations, regional peace, and the very essence of a two-state solution.” -UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is threatening.

“We have the right to defend our rights and achieve our goals by all available means, whatever the results, as Netanyahu’s decisions contradict the resolutions of international legitimacy and international law.” -Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas

https://www.timesofisrael.com/un-warns-israel-against-netanyahu-pledge-to-annex-west-bank

Looks like Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wants to take back what God gave Israel in the first place. Besides, this is only the beginning of what God promised His chosen people.

Genesis 15:18-21 On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates: the Kenite and the Kenizzite and the Kadmonite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Rephaim and the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Girgashite and the Jebusite.”

Bahrain: Peace to Prosperity Workshop, June 2019

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.

Photo: BBC

“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.
