Luke 21:11b …and in various places famines and pestilences. -Jesus

February 15, 2020: China continues to try and manage the spread of the Wuhan Corona virus.

Food supplies are starting to become an issue. Grocery stores are running out of food. The government is shipping truck loads of food into Wuhan and other quarantined cities. Despite government orders, people are stocking up and preparing for the long hall. Costs of food are going up due to shortages.

Demographers and disease modelers are becoming increasingly suspicious of the data coming out of China.

The MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis (CGIDA) in London estimates the mortality rate for the Wuhan virus is about 1%. China is currently reporting 67,000+ infected with 1,527 deaths. Math suggests the number of infected should be close to 150,000 infected instead.

Professor Neil Ferguson, Director of The Abdul Latif Jameel Institute for Disease and Emergency Analytics (J-IDEA) made the following observations. The number of people infected is doubling approximately every 5 days. There are possibly 50,000 new infections every day in China. The virus is projected to grow over the next month (mid March) with a possible peak at that time locally in the Wuhan area. The peak for the remainder of China is expected to be another month later (mid April). For Professor Ferguson’s complete comments, see the YouTube link below.

 

Other disease modelers estimate the number of cases may ultimately range from 550,000 to 4,400,000. The link below discusses the issue with leading modelers from Los Alamos National Lab, Northeastern University, The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Laval University in Quebec, Canada.

Blood Red Caspian Sea: Primorsky, Aktau, Kazakhstan, February 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , on February 13, 2020 by paulthepoke

Revelation 8:8-9 The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed.

Primorsky, Aktau, Kazakhstan: The beach has turned blood red.

There is not much coverage on this story, just a few pictures. Locals claim this is due to an algae. They say it is safe and normal…

For those who are new to the website, we are not in the Tribulation. This is not the fulfillment of Revelation 8. This is a beach on the Caspian Sea in Kazakhstan. This is yet another example of the phenomenon of a blood red body of water. This continues to happen on a small scale. Revelation 8 informs of 1/3 of the sea turning blood red, not a beach.

At any rate, let’s welcome Kazakhstan to the blood red body of water club!

Gabriel: Jesus Is Coming

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Angels, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 9, 2020 by paulthepoke

Luke 1:31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.

To add to Mary’s intense anxiousness and confusion, Mary is being told she is the chosen vessel for the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy. Mary is going to be the promised sign.

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

A couple of word studies on His name. In the Hebrew of Isaiah 7, Immanuel means: with us is God.

The New Testament Greek name is Ἰησοῦς/Iésous. The Greek name is translated from the Hebrew Yehoshua or Yeshua which means “Yahweh saves” or “Yahweh is salvation”.

In English, we call Him Jesus or Joshua.

Behold… The English translation of ἰδού/idou does not grab the intensity of the term in the Greek. This is an imperative verb. Look! See! Gabriel is attempting to further gain Mary’s attention.

…you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.

Gabriel is going to give Mary four points of information.

  • You are going to get pregnant.
  • You are going to give birth.
  • The child will be a boy.
  • Name Him Jesus.

Luke 1:32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to Him the throne of his father David,

Then Gabriel goes on to explain the character of her Promised Son.

He will be great or μέγας/megas. This Greek term is where we get the English prefix “mega”. For example, lottery players hope to win “mega” millions. Jesus will be great in the grandest sense.

will be called the Son of the Most High.

Gabriel is announcing Jesus is the Son of God or Most High or Highest. The point is, there is none above Him. He is Deity.

~

And the Lord God will give to Him the throne of his father David

Gabriel connects the dots from Mary back to King David. The prophets foretold of a coming time when a ruler would come from the line of David. The boy to be named Jesus, who is about to be born, is the fulfillment of the promise God made to King David.

2 Samuel 7:12 When your days are fulfilled and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring after you, who shall come from your body, and I will establish His kingdom.

Mary herself knew she was of the line of David. Luke points this out in his documented genealogy of Jesus from Mary back to David. See Luke 3:23-31.

Jeremiah 23:5 Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and He shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.

~

Luke 1:33 and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.

Gabriel makes the point two times to Mary. When your earthly son assumes the role of King, it is His non stop. His kingdom will be without end.

The eternal nature of Christ’s kingdom is promised to King David in 2 Samuel 7 and multiple places in Psalms 45 and 89. The prophet Daniel in chapters 2, 4, 6 and 7 makes multiple, definitive and emphatic statements. His kingdom will never end.

Daniel 2:44 And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever…

The same promise Gabriel made to Mary over 2,000 years ago is true for us today. Jesus is coming. And when He comes back the second time, He will be firmly planted as King for eternity.

Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of His government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over His kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.

Wuhan Virus Update, February 7, 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Pestilence, Prophecy with tags , , on February 7, 2020 by paulthepoke

Luke 21:11b …and in various places famines and pestilences. -Jesus

February 7, 2020: China has stepped up their efforts to slow the spread of the Wuhan Virus. Any person suspected to have the virus has been collected and quarantined. Any person with a temperature, has been captured and quarantined. Government officials are going door to door to look for possible infected people. China is using drones mounted with thermal cameras to detect people with a fever. The Chinese government has declared the situation a “wartime condition”.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7977649/China-orders-Wuhan-round-suspected-coronavirus-patients-quarantine-camps.html

China’s Vice Premier Sun Chunlan called for a “people’s war” on the virus. For those who refuse to participate, they risk being “nailed onto the pillar of historical shame forever.”

China is looking to convert hotels and empty factories into temporary hospitals and “quarantine stations”.

For the latest data, check out this interactive website from Johns Hopkins.

https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6

  • 34,679 infected world wide.
  • 720 deaths (2% of cases)
  • 2,038 recoveries
  • Cases reported in at least 29 countries
  • Experts outside of China estimate 100,000 to 350,000 infected

The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated this is not a pandemic. The WHO defines a pandemic as “worldwide spread of a new disease”.

“Currently we are not in a pandemic. We are at the phase where it is an epidemic with multiple foci, and we try to extinguish the transmission in each of these foci,” Dr. Sylvie Briand, WHO Head Global Infectious Hazard Preparedness.

Apparently, these other cases outside of China are a “spillover”…

Wuhan Virus Update, February 2, 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Pestilence, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on February 2, 2020 by paulthepoke

Luke 21:11b …and in various places famines and pestilences. -Jesus

Thursday, 1/30/20: The World Health Organization finally declared a global emergency regarding the Wuhan Virus. Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization is calling “all countries to work together in a spirit of solidarity and cooperation. We are all in this together, and we can only stop it together.”

Click on the link below for the WHO complete statement and declaration.

https://www.who.int/dg/speeches/detail/who-director-general-s-statement-on-ihr-emergency-committee-on-novel-coronavirus-(2019-ncov)

President Trump and the United States declared a public health emergency on Friday, 1/31/20.

“I want to emphasize that this is a serious health situation in China, but I want to emphasize that the risk to the American public is currently low. Our goal is to do all we can do to keep it that way,” Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield

The Wuhan Virus is starting to make an economic impact on global markets. On Friday, 1/31/20, the Dow Jones Industrial Index in the United States closed down 603.41 points, or 2.1%, to 28,256.03.

The economic impact is likely to be significant considering China’s consumption of goods as measured against the rest of the planet. Chinese financial regulators are set to provide $173 billion of liquidity when markets open on Monday, February 3, 2020.

Michael Douville has weighed in on the impact of the Wuhan Virus as well. The virus may be the tipping point for the global economy. Michael has been monitoring the slowing global economy for at least the last 6 months. Indexes show shipping around the planet is slowing. On Friday, the yield curve in the bond market inverted which indicates a slowing economy. Economic activity is halting across China because of the Wuhan Virus. Michael likes gold, silver, bonds and rental properties. As always, check with your financial consultant. Click on the link below for Michael’s comments on the Wuhan Virus impact.

Trump's Deal of the Century, January 2020

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

For those who want to read the complete document, click on the link below.

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.

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.

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…
