The Watchmen: Biden & Temple Mount, New President for UAE, Food Security Expansion, Russia & Ukraine, Finland Applies to NATO, Energy & Rubles, China Active in Pacific

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

Genesis 12:3 And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.

In this episode of The Watchmen, President Biden reaches out to Jordanian King Abdullah and discussed Temple Mount Security. A reminder, never a good idea to divide God’s land or capital.

The United Arab Emirates has a new president. Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan was elected president by a federal supreme council. He replaces his half brother, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed.

Revelation 6:6 And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

Food security continues to play an increasing role in our world. India will no longer export wheat. India is the world’s second largest producer. Three (Russia, Ukraine, India) of the top 10 wheat producers in the world will no longer export wheat. This accounts for 40-50% of the planet’s grain trade. This is a very big deal!!!

Iranian citizens have taken to the streets to protest the exploding price of basic staples. Grains and cooking oils have gone up 300% over the last week. In response, the government cut off the internet briefly.

Diesel supply shortages are starting to be a concern on the east coast of the United States. All of these things point to higher food and fuel costs.

Ukraine’s President Zelensky has been invited to the Davos Economic Forum scheduled for later this week. Zelensky appears to have the support of the world’s economic elite. More weapons please…

Democrat House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer made the following admission this past week on the floor of the House of Representatives. “It is unfortunate that in a time of war, we spend all the time blaming our own president.” So we are fighting a proxy war with the Russians.

Finland announces its intent to join NATO. Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan is not so sure about this move and a states Finland and Sweden are hot beds of terrorism. Russia promptly cuts off electricity to Finland.

It would appear Europe is starting to understand Putin a little more clearly. European companies, not sovereign countries, are opening accounts with Gazprom Bank to pay for natural gas in rubles. Mind you, this does not violate any European sanctions against Russia. No conflict of interest, move along.

Revelation 9:16 The number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them.

The People’s Republic of China is on the move in the Pacific. A Chinese aircraft carrier was spotted off the coast of Taiwan and Japan. A reconnaissance vessel was also spotted off the west coast of Australia. Plus, the Chinese are making end roads in the Solomon Islands. Australia responds with strong language to the Chinese.

The Watchmen: Temple Mount Control & Jordan, Abraham Accords Trade, Erdogan Travels to Saudi Arabia, Rublezone, Putin’s Surgery, Iranian Reach & Propaganda

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 2, 2022 by paulthepoke

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

In this episode of The Watchmen we look at Jordan wanting full control of the Temple Mount complex. Are we watching Jordan respond to regional pressure with regards to security of the Muslim religious sites? How does this relate to Ezekiel 38-39? Flags are flying on the Temple Mount during Ramadan. Who do these flags represent?

The United Arab Emirates are flying heavy transport planes in and out of Israel. It appears defense contracts are being fulfilled between the Abraham Accord countries. The concern is an increasingly hostile Iran with nuclear intentions.

President Recep Erdogan of Turkey travelled to Saudi Arabia this week for the first time in five years. Erdogan stated, “I see and believe that it is in our joint interest to boost our cooperation with Saudi Arabia in such areas as healthcare, energy, food security, agricultural technologies, defense industry and finance. It seems that we have significant potential particularly in renewable and green energy. We will hopefully discuss and thoroughly evaluate these issues.”

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps allegedly tried to assassinate an Israeli diplomat in Turkey. Iran is reaching out via Hezbollah around the globe including the British Virgin Islands with drug deals.

Russia is cutting off the flow of natural gas to European countries of Poland and Bulgaria who refuse to pay in rubles. However, the Rublezone has manifested with Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary who are agreeable to pay for natural gas in rubles.

Allegedly, Russian President Vladimir Putin is scheduled for cancer surgery in the near future. Fellow KGB comrade Nikolai Patrushev is picked to assume authority while Putin is under treatment. Putin is suspected to be managing Parkinson’s Disease and symptoms related to the progressive neurological disorder. Check out video and professional analysis of Putin’s physical condition.

Teaser alert… Food processing plants are catching fire around the United States. 18 plants have been affected in the last 6 months. More on this topic to come in future episodes of the Watchmen.

Lastly, nothing like a little Iranian Propaganda gong wrong. In preparation for Jerusalem Day, things don’t go as planned. This section of the Watchmen was brought to you by Beavis and Butthead. Sorry, we could not help ourselves. Deep down, grown men have a teenage boy inside of them!

This Week in Prophecy: IDF & Gaza, Passover Re enactment, Israeli Gas, Russia & Donbas Region, Shanghai Port, Supply Chain Shock, Sri Lanka Bankrupt

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 18, 2022 by paulthepoke

This Week in Prophecy, April 18th, 2022:

Israel has launched military operations in the Gaza Strip in response to incoming missiles. This follows conflict on the Temple Mount between the Palestinians and Israeli security.

A Passover sacrifice re enactment was completed near the Western Wall outside of the Temple Mount.

The European Union is looking to rid itself of dependence of Russian energy. Israel looks to fill the void and sell natural gas to Europe.

Later, Russia calls out Israel for UN Security Council and General Assembly violations against the Palestinians.

Russia has launched a major military offensive in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine.

Shanghai is under a significant lockdown. Supply chains will be disrupted. This will likely lead to further inflation and shortages of goods.

Sri Lanka announces bankruptcy.

Resurrection: The Atheist Always Demanding Proof

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gospel, Prophecy, Resurrection, Spring Feasts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 16, 2022 by paulthepoke

The atheist, always wanting proof. The arguments are all the same. The Bible does not count as evidence so they say. Jesus is imaginary. The Bible is a fairy tale and just a book of stories. Religion is for the weak minded. Insert next cliché here…

You all spend a lot of time on “imaginary things” as you see it.

The atheist claims to have read the Bible. They usually studied the Bible at a liberal university and read it cover to cover of course. They took a class under a liberal, tenured professor. And they were brainwashed and told what to think.

Here is my challenge to the atheist. Sit down by yourself. Read. Comprehend… and think. Stop regurgitating what somebody told you. Be an independent thinker. Stop acting like the collective Borg.

As an introductory to Jesus, I recommend the book of 1 John. This will not take more than 10 minutes.

So you want proof…

Eye Witness Accounts

1 Corinthians 15:6-8 After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles; and last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeared to me also.

In the passage above, there are 512 plus eyewitnesses to the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

John 20:11 But Mary was standing outside the tomb weeping; and so, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb;

Luke 24:10 Now they were Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James; also the other women with them were telling these things to the apostles.

Salome is included with this group in Mark 16:1 for a total of at least 4 women.

Luke 24:13-15 And behold, two of them were going that very day to a village named Emmaus, which was about seven miles from Jerusalem. And they were talking with each other about all these things which had taken place. While they were talking and discussing, Jesus Himself approached and began traveling with them.

Cleopas and friend are two other witnesses.

Matthew 27:54 Now the centurion, and those who were with him keeping guard over Jesus, when they saw the earthquake and the things that were happening, became very frightened and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!”

And to close out the list, a Roman atheist and his fellow guards. Seeing was believing for these boys.

But Jesus was not the only person resurrected. He was the first but there were others.

Matthew 27:52-53 The tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered the holy city and appeared to many.

The events took place during Passover. Jews were required per Mosaic Law to come to Jerusalem for the holiday. Tens of thousands of people would have been in the city visiting in addition to the population.

~

The evidence provided in Scripture would stand in a court of law. Harvard Law Professor Simon Greenleaf wrote A Treatise on the Law of Evidence. The document is viewed as “the greatest single authority in the entire literature of legal procedure.” The United States judicial system functions on the rules of evidence established by Greenleaf.

Professor Greenleaf, an atheist, took up the issue of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The facts changed his mind.

Professor Greenleaf’s legal standard of proof is not the issue. The case for the resurrection of Jesus is legally tight. Who cares if the facts stand in a man-made court of law??? The issue is this…

DO YOU BELIEVE THE RECORD?

Your eternal destination is in the balance.

The Watchmen: Joseph’s Tomb, Israel’s Gov’t Fracture, Russia & Ukraine, Turkey Inflation, Lebanon Bankrupt, Shanghai Gridlock, Iran Nuclear Deal, Pakistan PM Out

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 11, 2022 by paulthepoke

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

In this episode of The Watchmen we look at the destruction of Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus.

Mark 3:24-25 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.

Revelation 2:9 I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

Israel’s fractured coalition government is splintering. Coalition whip Idit Silman from Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s Yamina party announced she was joining the opposition led by Benjamin Netanyahu, allegedly.

Waves of terror from the Palestinians continue across Israel during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The Mosaic Law’s Spring Feast of Passover is set for later this week. Civil tension is growing.

Listen to the latest from the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Check out up to date situational maps from the region.

The ripple effects from the war are having economic implications. Turkey is experiencing historic inflation. Lebanon has declared bankruptcy.

China has locked down 25,000,000 in Shanghai due to a COVID 19 variant. People are starving. Supply chain disruptions are occurring in the world’s largest logistical port.

The chatter around the Iran Nuclear deal continues. What does the arrest of 2 men in Washington have to do with this? Where did they come from? Visas trace their activity back to Iran and Pakistan.

The Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, has received a vote of no confidence and has been ousted from power. Who is behind this? People are taking to the streets across Pakistan by the thousands protesting. Pakistan is home to the largest Shia population outside of Iran. Something smells fishy…

All of this and more from the Watchmen. Click on the link below for content and analysis.

Passover: The Sacrificial Lamb

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gospel, Prophecy, Spring Feasts with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 10, 2022 by paulthepoke

Exodus 12:5-6 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats, and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month, when the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill their lambs at twilight.

The lamb is without blemish or tamim in the Hebrew. The lamb is complete or sound per Strong’s Concordance.

Multiple people bear witness to the fact Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God. The first example is a quote from John the Baptist in the Book of John. The identification of Christ as the Lamb of God took place in the Jordan River at the baptism of Jesus.

John 1:29 The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”

A day later, John the Baptist again identified Jesus as the Lamb of God.

John 1:36 and he looked at Jesus as he walked by and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!”

While Philip was with the Ethiopian, he equated Jesus as the referenced lamb from the reading of Isaiah 53:7.

Acts 8:32 Now the passage of the Scripture that he was reading was this: “Like a sheep he was led to the slaughter and like a lamb before its shearer is silent, so he opens not his mouth.”

The Apostle Peter states the blood of Jesus is as a sinless lamb.

1 Peter 1:19 but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.

In these four cases above, Jesus is referred to as an ἀμνός/amnos in the Greek. A lamb with innocence and sacrificial considerations is the idea per Strong’s Concordance.

In the book of Revelation, John refers to Jesus as a lamb or ἀρνίον/arnion. This is a small, little, or diminutive lamb. This type of person has the purest of intentions. HELPs Word Studies indicates the essence of innocence or virgin like intentions. Twenty-nine times (29) Christ is labeled as an arnion only in the book of Revelation. The context is the throne room of Heaven in the presence of the Father, Spirit, millions of witnesses including apostles, elders, believers, martyrs, creatures, and angels.

Revelation 5:12 saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!”

Revelation 14:1 Then I looked, and behold, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads.

Revelation 17:14 They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful.

Jesus Christ is the sacrificial Lamb of God as foreshadowed by Moses in Exodus 12.

This Week in Prophecy: Israeli Defense Pact, Grain Shortages Emerging, Gold Backed Ruble?, Russian Gas Flow, Food Inflation

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 4, 2022 by paulthepoke

This Week in Prophecy, April 4th, 2022:

The Negev Summit was completed this past week in Israel. Is a military alliance forming between Israel, Morocco, Egypt, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States? Air and Naval exercises have been completed in the Red and Mediterranean Seas. The objective is regional “peace and security”.

Revelation 6 prophecies of a time when it will cost a day’s wage to provide for basic provisions to eat a loaf of bread. Food shortages, supply chain disruption, and inflation are trending toward difficult times.

The early results of the Russian invasion of Ukraine are in. Israel is facing shortages of eggs and wheat. Exports out of Ukraine have stopped. Israeli suppliers are scrambling to fill the void left in food supply chains.

Is Russia looking to return to a gold and commodity backed Ruble? The central bank is buying gold. President Vladimir Putin is demanding natural gas be paid in rubles from those buying the Russian product. Will Putin cut off the flow of natural gas to Europe if they refuse to pay in Rubles?

Will oil and commodity payment be linked to the ruble as well? What does this mean for commodity and precious metal prices? How will this affect the paper gold market of the COMEX?

The Russian Ruble has almost recovered to levels prior to the invasion of Ukraine. What does the future hold for the value of the Russian Ruble and the US Dollar?

German grocery prices are headed up from 20 to 50% starting Monday…

Preview: God’s Spring Appointed Holidays 5782/2022

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gospel, Prophecy, Spring Feasts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 3, 2022 by paulthepoke

There are seven God appointed holidays communicated through the Old Testament Law. The first three spring holidays were fulfilled on the appointed holiday by Jesus Himself. The names of the feasts are: Passover, Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits.

In the Hebrew year 5782 or the Gregorian calendar year of 2022, the holidays occur as follows. Passover essentially begins at sunset on Friday, Nisan 14th (Hebrew calendar) or April 15th on a western calendar. The first day of Unleavened Bread is the next day at sunset on Saturday, Nisan 15th or April 16th. Lastly, the feast of First Fruits starts at sunset on Sunday, Nisan 16th or April 17th. The holidays culminate and end at sunset on Saturday, April 23rd. These are the mathematically calculated dates for our 21st century calendars.

According to God’s directions, the new moon has yet to be observed. As of this posting, morning of April 3rd, two witnesses have not seen the sliver of the new moon. It is likely to be seen this evening or the next. Adding to the confusion, it was cloudy and overcast in Jerusalem last evening. Nobody was able to look for the new moon because of cloud cover. At any rate, this will push back the date of the Spring Feasts a couple of days past the dates mentioned above.

As usual, there is not consensus on these dates within various studies of Judaism and Jewish Messianic believers in Yeshua or Jesus Christ. Granted, all of these folks are making good faith efforts to be accurate. Each group has good reason(s) for the dates selected. They are not all idiots. When in doubt, search for the new moon and full moon. Humanity struggles to keep time as God has directed. No one knows the day or the hour…

The first of God’s holidays is Passover or Pesach in the Hebrew. The holiday begins on the 14th day of the Hebrew month Nisan (March or April on a Gregorian calendar). There is a play on words in the original Hebrew. A “pesach” is an unblemished lamb which was required for the sacrifice. After the “pesach” was sacrificed, the blood was to be smeared on the wooden posts of the house. When God saw the blood on the door posts, He passed over or “pasach” and the house was spared judgment.

The original directions for the Passover were given to Moses and Aaron in Egypt. The statute and happenings are noted in Exodus 12. God defines the purpose of the holiday to Israel. 

Exodus 12:26-27a “And when your children say to you, ‘What does this rite mean to you?’ you shall say, ‘It is a Passover sacrifice to the LORD who passed over the houses of the sons of Israel in Egypt when He smote the Egyptians, but spared our homes.’”

~

The second of God’s holidays is Unleavened Bread or Chag haMatazt in the Hebrew. The holiday begins on the 15th of Nisan and runs for seven days.

The directions of Unleavened Bread are noted in Exodus 12:15-20. The focus of the week is to live a life without leaven, the symbol for sin. Leaven is not to be in the house. Leaven products are not to be consumed. Bread without yeast, matzah, is to be eaten.

~

The third of God’s holidays is First Fruits or Reshit Katzir in the Hebrew. The one day holiday begins on the day after the Sabbath or Sunday on our calendar.

The directions for First Fruits are noted in Leviticus 23:9-14. The priest is to make a barley offering of the first portion of the harvest to the Lord. The priest intervenes on behalf of the people. The reality of the holiday for the people of Israel is this. The people bring their grain sheaf to the priest. They are to sacrifice a lamb without blemish. The offering is also to be presented with bread and wine.

The Watchmen: Russia/Ukraine Update, Iran in the News, Turkey Peace Negotiations, Saudi Oil Attacked, Israel’s Negev Summit, Abraham Accord Festival, Energy Inflation

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 28, 2022 by paulthepoke

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

In this episode of The Watchmen we look at the current situation on the ground in Ukraine. How is Russian troop morale? Anecdotal evidence suggests things are not all roses.

Is this morale foreshadowing into Ezekiel 38:21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Lord GOD. Every man’s sword will be against his brother.

Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan looks to host peace negotiations between Ukraine and Russia in Turkey. Erdogan is looking to elevate himself on the world stage as a power broker.

As a hallmark of the end times scenario, deception is every where. In today’s world, we call it propaganda and spin. Everyone is trying to project a message regardless of the facts of the matter.

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia… Modern day Iran is keeping busy. The Iran Nuclear Deal negotiations continue. The Iranian proxies in Yemen, the Houthis, have launched an attack on the Saudi Arabian oil company Aramco. Iran marked the occasion by projecting pictures of Houthi leaders on the famed Azadi Tower in Tehran.

Israel is hosting the Negev Summit this week. Partners in the Abraham Accords and nations at peace with Israel are in attendance. US Secretary of State Blinken is at the meeting and touring the Middle East and North Africa.

The Abraham Accords Festival and Games kicks off this week as well. Soccer friendlies are the headliners.

Inflation continues to be an issue. Gas prices are going up in Israel. Germany is out of natural gas. Countries are lining up to take advantage of the situation.

Aggression continues to increase around the Middle East and Europe. The rest of the world stands by and watches. Ezekiel 38 speaks of a time when not one country will come to the defense of Israel. As it stands now, no one is coming to the defense of Ukraine. No one is coming to the defense of Saudi Arabia. The United States is stepping away from the Middle East…
