Posted in Gaza Strip/Philistia, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on November 12, 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.”

See also Zephaniah 2:4-5.

Ancient Philistia or the Philistines are the people who occupied what is the modern day Gaza Strip.

See link below for additional analysis.

November 12, 2018: Hamas has launched over 370 missiles and counting from the Gaza Strip into Israel. This is the largest assault to date by Hamas. Air raid sirens have blared repeatedly. One Israeli citizen has been killed. Over 30 Israeli citizens have been injured as of this post.

 

 

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has indicated Hamas has crossed a “red line”. The IDF promises Hamas an “Iron Fist” of a response. 70+ targets have been destroyed per the IDF including a Hamas television station. Al-Aqsa News has been eliminated.

“The resistance factions’ joint command center is holding a serious conversation about expanding its range of fire. Ashkelon is just the beginning. Approximately one million Zionists will be within the range of our missiles if the Zionist enemy’s decision is to continue its aggression,” said Abu Obeida, Hamas Spokesman.

Israel is moving more military hardware and troops to the border of Gaza.

Sanhedrin Encourages Temple to Jerusalem Mayoral Candidates, November 2018

Posted in Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Temple with tags , , , on November 11, 2018 by paulthepoke

Matthew 24:15 “So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand) …” -Jesus

November 2018: An election for the mayor of Jerusalem is to be held this upcoming week. A mayor’s term is for five years.

The Sanhedrin of Israel is back in the news. The Sanhedrin reconvened in 2005 after a 1,600-year absence. Who is/was the Sanhedrin? They are/were a group of 71 members of Israel’s best rabbinical sages. The group was made up of members from the Pharisees and Sadducees back in the day. The Sanhedrin is/was lead by the High Priest. (Holman Bible Dictionary). Today, they oversee legal matters and future construction of the pending third temple.

Sanhedrin-5a BIN

The Sanhedrin has issued a letter to both candidates. The focus of the letter is the building of the third Temple. Here are some Sanhedrin quotes from the letter.

“With God’s merciful approval, one of you will be chosen as head of the city, may it be built and made ready for its ultimate purpose. We call on the candidates as well as the voters to make choices based on truth and on the main aspect of Jerusalem, which is the building of the Temple.”

“Avoiding this essential issue endangers the existence of the city and its identity as the capital of Israel, thereby endangering Israel itself. Every Jew and all of humanity are commanded to ascend to the Temple Mount.”

“We expect you, as candidates, to relate to this role the city has as home of the Temple. This subject is not simply a matter of religious belief but must also be expressed in political, fiscal, and educational terms.”

“Jerusalem in its entirety is sanctified as Holy and is the spiritual center of the world, the throne of God. We urge you to make public your plans relating to this aspect of the city. There are several ways this can be accomplished, such as festivals of holiness to replace those of impurity.”

“Jerusalem must prepare to host the millions of pilgrims who will attend the feasts when the Third Temple is built. We also call on the government to prepare a center for an international body to replace the United Nations and the Hague, one that will be rooted in the Bible.”

The Seven-Sealed Scroll, Featuring Phil Kulis

Posted in Phil Kulis, Prophecy, Revelation with tags , , on November 9, 2018 by paulthepoke

PhilKulis PicIn Revelation 5 we are introduced to a Scroll held in the hand of God the Father. A determination is made as to who is worthy to open the Scroll. And in Chapter 6 the first six of the Seals of the Scroll are opened.

A scroll is a paper coiled around a spool. The inner part of a scroll cannot be accessed before the outer part.

The common image of a seven-sealed scroll is that of a scroll with seven seals along the leading edge so that all seven act as locks to prevent the scroll from opening.

This arrangement of seven “locks” means that all seven must be opened before any part of the scroll can be accessed. This method means any one of the seals would keep the entire scroll sealed and therefore they are redundant. Why would God the Father need six redundant seals locking a scroll when worthiness of the recipient is what enables the seals to be broken?

 

1 And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals.
2 Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?”
3 And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it.
4 So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it.
5 But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”
6 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
7 Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.
Revelation 5:1-7 NKJV

 

wax seal shutterstock Notice in verse 2 a mighty angel says regarding the opening the Scroll, “…open the scroll and loose it’s seals.” Notice also in verse 5 one of the Elders says “…open the scroll and loose its seals.”

John documents that there are two witnesses to the mechanical nature of the Scroll. That the scroll is to be opened then followed by its seals loosed. Neither the angel nor the Elder says, “loose it’s seals and open it” but rather both witness that the scroll is opened before the seals are loosed.

The scroll is opened and seals are loosed as it is unwound. This indicates that the seals are internal within in the scroll. A seal is opened and the scroll is unrolled. Another seal is broken and the scroll is unrolled further.

This causes a “selah” or pause between the loosing of the seals and allows the effect of the current judgment to “soak in.”

Therefore, the Seals are in sequential order, not simultaneous as some would lead you to believe.

 

 

Russia Increases Presence in Libya, October 2018

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on October 16, 2018 by paulthepoke

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

Genesis 10:6 The sons of Ham were Cush and Mizraim and Put and Canaan.

These are Noah’s grandchildren. The sons of Ham by and large settled in Africa.

Put or Phut means “a bow”; a nation and people of northern Africa; probably Libyans. –Strong’s Concordance. Consensus among researchers and scholars is Put is modern day Libya.

Historical Put or modern day Libya is a country that will join Russia and others in their future invasion of Israel.

October 2018: Russia is adding military hardware and troops into Libya. The build appears to have started in March 2017.

Russia has built military bases in the Mediterranean port cities of Benghazi and Tobruk.

Russian Kalibr anti-ship missiles and the S-300 missile defense system are reported to be in Libya. Russian military equipment and military vehicles bound for Libya have been intercepted by Tunisia earlier in the year.

Libya Oil

Libya has the largest oil reserves in Africa. As of now, production is approximately 700,000 barrels per day. With political stability and safety, production could increase to 2,500,000 barrels per day. President Vladimir Putin’s Russia clearly wants a piece of the growing pie.

There is money to be made in other areas of the Libyan economy. The country has a rebuild coming from all the destruction of civil war. Putin wants to re-establish a railway contract and military arms deals.

Libya is also the main gateway to Europe for African immigrants. Six billion pounds a year are made in trading humans across the Mediterranean Sea. Italy is less than 300 miles away. Vladimir Putin looks to control the flow of immigration as a political tool against Europe.

Billions upon billions of dollars are on the table. Russia and Libya are drawing closer just like the prophet Ezekiel said…

 

Stone Carving… Yerushalayim

Posted in Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on October 11, 2018 by paulthepoke

Joshua 10:1 As soon as Adoni-zedek, king of Jerusalem, heard how Joshua had captured Ai and had devoted it to destruction, doing to Ai and its king as he had done to Jericho and its king, and how the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel and were among them…

This is the first mention of the city of Jerusalem in the Bible. Granted, some would argue the appearance of Melchizedek as the king of Salem is the first mention of the city. Jerusalem means “teaching of peace” or “city of peace”.

Historically, this mention of Jerusalem is roughly 1,400 years before the birth of Christ. This is about 3,400 years ago from our current time in the 21st century.

October 2018: A stone carving from the 2nd Temple era is now on display at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. The carving is approximately 2,100 years old. Its dating is estimated to be 100 BC. The carving reads, “Hananiah son of Dodalos of Yerushalayim.”

Yerushalayim is how the capital is articulated and enunciated in Hebrew today in 2018 (Gregorian calendar).

The stone was unearthed near the modern-day Jerusalem International Convention Center. The stone was found about a mile and a half from the ancient city limits.

The find was directed by archaeologist Danit Levi of the Israel Antiquities Authority.

The Director of the Israel Museum is Professor Ido Bruno. He made the following quote regarding the stone carving.

“Every child who knows a few letters of Hebrew can read it and understand that 2000 years ago, Jerusalem was written and spelled like today.”

In case there is any question to the ownership of Jerusalem…

Zechariah 8:3 Thus says the Lord: I have returned to Zion and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem, and Jerusalem shall be called the faithful city, and the mountain of the Lord of hosts, the holy mountain.

 

Prices Rising in Turkey, Trouble Ahead

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on October 8, 2018 by paulthepoke

The Turmoil will not start in the United States, but it will reach our shores.  The warnings are moving from inevitable Global Turmoil to Imminent Global Turmoil!

Michael’s website

The Catalyst will not start in the Equity Markets, but in the Credit and Debt Markets of the World. The Debt Markets dwarf the Equity Markets by a factor of at least 20; the Credit Market is enormous!!  Although the Turmoil will not start in the US, the US Dollar will be the cause! In an effort to Save the World, the Central Bankers reduced rates to zero or below and encouraged borrowing; encouraged squander and massive, pervasive Debt! Global rates have risen from 0.1% to over 3.0% in the US. A thirty fold increase! Thirty times more interest; thirty times more tax money to service the debt. To make matters worse, a gamble was taken; betting the US Dollar would indefinitely decline in value and Debt could be rolled over in cheaper and cheaper Dollars. Historical Cycles were ignored; the Day of Reckoning is coming as the Dollar has reversed and is now getting stronger and stronger. The equation of local currency vs the US Dollar is tipping. Not only is the payment rate trending higher, more local currency is needed to buy a US Dollar; a lot more!

Available Now-Click on Book

Not only Debt repayment will cause Turmoil, but Imports are typically expressed in International measures which is typically the US Dollar. Energy costs will skyrocket in Argentina and Turkey as their respective currencies decline vis-a-vis the US Dollar.  Oil and refined petroleum Products will become very expensive and cause hardship on the local populations. Medicine, machine parts, electronics, replacement parts will all become expensive demanding more and more of free cash flow and eventually a breaking point!

Obviously, as more and more Capital is diverted to servicing Debt and rising costs, the Economy will suffer. It will become a Negative Feed Loop Spiral! Eventually, Debt will be Defaulted affecting the Pension Funds, Hedge Funds, Banks, Mutual Funds, Annuities, Sovereign Wealth Funds, and even small family reserves. Collateral Damage will be a Contagion as Peter can no longer pay Paul who then cannot pay Mark!

Bonds will face not only Market Risk as Interest Rates rise causing a relentless decline in value, but also Credit Risk as Defaults rise and credit Quality lowers.  It is time to review holdings. It is time to re-allocate. The US Dollar cycles; it will trend lower again. Things and Real Assets will rise substantially in the US like they are now in Turkey and India. Real Things should be accumulated now while our Dollar is high. Commodities such as copper, aluminum, steel, asphalt, agriculture, farms, lumber, and residential rentals can be slowly bought. Cash flowing rentals contain these basic materials and will not only protect their value in the future, but protect the owner with an alternative cash stream when Turmoil reaches our shores.

China in the Mediterranean, 2018

Posted in Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 4, 2018 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 49:12 Look, they come from far away! Look, some come from the north and west, and others from the land of Sinim!

Genesis 10:16-18 the Jebusites, Amorites, Girgashites, Hivites, Arkites, Sinites, Arvadites, Zemarites, and Hamathites. Eventually the families of the Canaanites were scattered.

The following is from the Genesis Record, Henry Morris.

The Biblical mention of a people in the Far East named “Sinim” (Isaiah 49:12), together with references in ancient secular histories to people in the Far East called “Sinae,” at least suggests the possibility that some of Sin’s descendants migrated eastward, while others went south into the land of Canaan. It is significant that the Chinese people have always been identified by the prefix “Sino-” (e.g., Sino-Japanese War; Sinology, the study of Chinese history). The name “Sin” is frequently encountered in Chinese names in the form “Siang” or its equivalent.

The evidence is tenuous but, of all the names in the Table of Nations, it does seem that two sons of Canaan, Heth (Hittites = Khittae = Cathay) and Sin (Sinites = Sinim = China), are the most likely to have become ancestors of the Oriental peoples. Since it seems reasonable that divine inspiration would include in such a table information concerning the ancestry of all the major streams of human development, it is reasonable to conclude that the Mongoloid peoples (and therefore also the American Indians) have come mostly from the Hamitic line.

Revelation 16:12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east.

In 2015, President Xi of China released the Belt and Road Initiative. China is looking to increase business with at least 68 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Land routes are considered to be “the belt”. Sea routes are considered to be “the road”.

China is looking to spend billions of dollars of investment on infrastructure projects. China is investing in Israel. Here is a list of projects. There are seaports in Haifa and Ashdod, Mount Carmel tunnels in Haifa, and the Tel Aviv light rail.

“What concerns us is China’s Belt and Road Initiative and its growing role in Israel’s maritime domain, especially the operating of Haifa port,” Retired Rear Admiral Professor Shaul Chorev.

“If you are going to look at phenomena like this initiative, you should look at it from all points of view. Most militaries use civilian technology, and that’s one reason why the Chinese favor economic activities like expanding ports. These are not only commercial, but commercial with military implications,” Douglas Feith, Director Center for National Security Strategies at the Hudson Institute.
