Breaking: Saudi Oil Refineries Under Attack, September 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Saudi Arabia/Sheba/Dedan, Trend Update with tags , , , on September 14, 2019 by paulthepoke

Buqayq, Saudia Arabia, September 14, 2019: The Saudis have reduced their oil supply output by half. 5.7 million barrels of oil per day have been stopped. 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas distribution has been affected as well. 10% of the world’s oil supply is estimated to go through this network in northeast Saudi Arabia.

This is a developing story and is highly likely to affect everyone’s pocketbook at the pump.

“For the oil market, if not the global economy, Abqaiq is the single most valuable piece of real estate on planet earth,” Bob McNally, Rapid Energy Group in Washington.

10 drone strikes on oil processing plants have caused large scale explosions and fires.

Isaiah 21:16-17 For thus the Lord said to me, “Within a year, according to the years of a hired worker, all the glory of Kedar will come to an end. And the remainder of the archers of the mighty men of the sons of Kedar will be few, for the LORD, the God of Israel, has spoken.”

The following peoples and their descendants make up Arabia per the prophets: Dedan, Tema, and Kedar.

Scripture is very clear. At some point in the future, the Saudis are going to get pummeled. Isaiah bears witness and confirms their fate.

Mount Sinai in Saudi Arabia???

Posted in Egypt/Nile River, Saudi Arabia/Sheba/Dedan with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 14, 2019 by paulthepoke

Exodus 3:1 Now Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, the priest of Midian, and he led his flock to the west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God.

Midian is a son of Abraham and Keturah. This occurred after the death of Sarah.

Genesis 25:2 She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah.

Midian settled in what is modern day northwest Saudi Arabia. The location is east of the Gulf of Suez. This is east of the Sinai Peninsula. And this is east of the Gulf of Aqaba.

Per Strong’s Concordance, there are 59 references to Midian in the Old Testament.

According to the Bible, this is the location where Moses led the Hebrew people after the Exodus from Egypt.

Horeb, the mountain of God… Horeb means: waste or desolate.

This is also the likely location of Elijah the prophet when he escaped Jezebel.

1 Kings 19:8-9 And he arose and ate and drank, and went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mount of God. There he came to a cave and lodged in it. And behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

There is also the comments of the Apostle Paul regarding the location of Mount Sinai.

Galatians 4:25 Now Hagar stands for Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present-day Jerusalem, because she is in slavery with her children.

The following is from https://www.jabalmaqla.com/

There is a long-standing academic consensus that the story of the Exodus is entirely, or almost entirely, a myth.

This conclusion is partially based on research assuming that the traditional candidate for Mount Sinai in the southern part of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula is legitimate. Although some experts believe in the credibility of that tradition, many have come away disappointed with the evidence (or lack thereof) found since the area has been heavily excavated in recent decades. The result has been a widespread rejection of the historicity of the Exodus story and proposals for over a dozen other mountains as possible candidates for Mount Sinai.

This website is dedicated to the candidacy of Jabal Maqla, which is part of the Jabal al-Lawz mountain range in northwestern Saudi Arabia. The creators of this website currently find this candidacy to offer the most compelling evidence.

However, research regarding this candidacy has been severely limited due to a lack of access to outsiders, with aspiring visitors being arrested, threatened, harassed and blocked by Saudi security or hostile locals who believe foreigners are to be kept out of the area. The authors of this website are among a tiny group of Westerners to successfully visit the sites in question. 

The purpose of this website is to compile all of the relevant information about the theory and its purported evidences so those interested can have a single comprehensive source. The website will be updated as ongoing research yields new information.

This website is a project of the Doubting Thomas Research Foundation, and is dedicated to documenting the true location of Biblical Mt. Sinai. Among the many sites proposed, this particular location in northwestern Saudi Arabia is the best candidate for where the Israelites traveled after fleeing slavery in Egypt. As we continue to study this subject, we remain firmly dedicated to intellectual honesty and integrity, and if new information arises that suggests another location, we will follow the evidence until it leads us to the truth, wherever that may be.

This website is LOADED with all kinds of thought provoking information and photographs. Check it out… https://www.jabalmaqla.com/

Trend Update: Saudi Arabia & Israel Strengthen Ties, April 2018

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Saudi Arabia/Sheba/Dedan, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on April 5, 2018 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:13 Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish with all its villages will say to you, ‘Have you come to capture spoil? Have you assembled your company to seize plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to capture great spoil?

Who are Sheba and Dedan? They are first mentioned in Genesis 10:7 The sons of Cush were Seba and Havilah and Sabtah and Raamah and Sabteca; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan.

The family tree starts with Noah, then his son Ham, then his son Cush, then his son Raamah and his sons Sheba and Dedan.

Historically, per Strong’s Concordance and NET Bible, Raamah settled in the southwest of the Arabian Peninsula. Sheba settled in the southern Arabian Peninsula. Dedan settled in the northern Arabian Peninsula. These areas make up what is modern day Saudi Arabia.

Dedan was an ancient capital of Saudi Arabia. It is modern day Al Ula in northwest Saudi Arabia.

Seba-Dedan2

April 2, 2018: The Saudi crown prince and king to be, Mohammed bin Salman, has declared Israel has a right to exist.

“I believe that each people, anywhere, has a right to live in their peaceful nation. I believe the Palestinians and the Israelis have the right to have their own land. But we have to have a peace agreement to assure the stability for everyone and to have normal relations,” Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Bin Salman also made the following incredible statements.

“Our country doesn’t have a problem with Jews. Our Prophet Muhammad married a Jewish woman. Not just a friend — he married her. Our prophet, his neighbors were Jewish. You will find a lot of Jews in Saudi Arabia coming from America, coming from Europe. There are no problems between Christian and Muslims and Jews. We have problems like you would find anywhere in the world, among some people. But the normal sort of problems.” 

Many believe the cooperation with Israel is about the management of Iran. Israel and Saudi Arabia see Iran as a mortal threat. Iran is supplying rebels in Yemen with missiles which are being launched into Saudi Arabia. The Crown Prince did not have kind comments for Iranian leadership. He specifically addressed Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic.

According to bin Salman, the Ayatollah “makes Hitler look good.”

“Hitler didn’t do what the supreme leader is trying to do. Hitler tried to conquer Europe. This is bad. But the supreme leader is trying to conquer the world. He believes he owns the world. They are both evil guys. He is the Hitler of the Middle East. In the 1920s and 1930s, no one saw Hitler as a danger. Only a few people. Until it happened. We don’t want to see what happened in Europe happen in the Middle East. We want to stop this through political moves, economic moves, intelligence moves. We want to avoid war.” -Mohammed bin Salman

Have you come to capture spoil? Have you assembled your company to seize plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to capture great spoil? Yes, Russia (as they see it) has economic reason to invade Israel.

Ezekiel 38:13 says Sheba and Dedan (modern day Saudi Arabia) along with Tarshish (loosely Europe) will object and protest against Russia and its surrogates.

Lines are being drawn in the sands of the Middle East. Countries are in alignment according to Ezekiel’s prophecy.

Destiny waits, but for how long…

Trend Update: Saudi Crown Prince and King in Waiting, Mohammed bin Salman

Ezekiel 38:13 Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all its leaders will say to you, ‘Have you come to seize spoil? Have you assembled your hosts to carry off plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to seize great spoil?’

The winds of change are blowing on the Arabian Peninsula. Allow me to introduce the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammad bin Salman. MBS is how he is known in the press. Bin Salman is the king in waiting for Saudi Arabia.

December 7, 2017: Press reports indicate MBS is the likely buyer of a Da Vinci painting of Jesus Christ. He is believed to have paid $450 million for the painting.

December 19, 2017: Saudi Arabia looks to issue travel visas to the kingdom for the first time in history. Visas are expected in early 2018. Previously, only work visas were issued and permitted.

Please watch the video below. It is in conjunction with Trey Smith’s God in a Nutshell Project. https://godinanutshell.com/

Learn more about the Saudi king to be, Mohammed bin Salman and his actions as a reformer. MBS looks to moderate the Islamic kingdom.

It would appear Israel and the Saudis are looking to establish friendly relations. Israel believes MBS can help bring peace to the Holy Land. Both countries have one thing in common. They are deeply concerned about a nuclear Iran and what that means to the region.

The prophet Ezekiel in chapters 38-39 details the moves of Saudi Arabia when Russian and allies look to invade Israel. They do nothing when it comes to the protection of Israel.

Trend Update: Saudi Crown Prince Declares War on Terror, November 2017

Posted in Prophecy, Saudi Arabia/Sheba/Dedan, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on November 29, 2017 by paulthepoke

Daniel 11:40 At the time of the end, the king of the south shall attack him…

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia: The Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, has declared war on terrorism. The king in waiting has promised to “wipe terrorists from the face of the earth”.

“Beyond the killing of innocent people and the spread of hatred, terrorism and extremism distort the image of our religion.” -Mohammed bin Salman (MBS)

The prince (MBS) is the Saudi Defense Minister. MBS founded the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition in 2015. Some have dubbed this group as the “Arab NATO”. There are 41 countries that comprise the coalition. The group is primarily a Sunni Muslim organization. Some of the countries included are Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Afghanistan, Uganda, Somalia, Mauritania, Lebanon, Libya, Yemen and Turkey. Excluded is the Shia country Iran and its allies from Iraq and Syria.

IMCT

The purpose of the alliance is to “mobilize and coordinate the use of resources, facilitate the exchange of information and help member countries build their own counter-terrorism capacity.” Pakistani General Raheel Sharif, Commander in Chief.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5118615/Saudi-vows-new-Islamic-alliance-wipe-terrorists-earth.html#ixzz4zjvUtu66

 

Granted, MBS is not a king at this time. He is promised to be the next king of Saudi Arabia. Multiple stories have emerged stating he is to be appointed king any day.

The crown prince has found favor with the United States and President Donald Trump. The Saudis have recently signed a $110 billion arms agreement to modernize their military.

mbs

Mohammed bin Salman is the youngest Defense Minister in the world at age 32. MBS is also in charge of the country’s oil industry. Self-control and temperament are considerations. He is known as a military hawk. He has already engaged in a war of words with Iran. MBS is strongly opposed to the expansion of the Shia brand of Islam supported by Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah.

For their part, Iran sees the young crown prince and his leadership group as “idiots”.

“We are a primary target for the Iranian regime…We won’t wait for the battle to be in Saudi Arabia. Instead, we’ll work so that the battle is for them in Iran,” Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi king in waiting.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jun/25/mohammed-bin-salman-saudi-heir-young-hothead-with-ambitions

 

Is the crown prince the promised king of the South per Daniel 11:40? He has recently consolidated his power. MBS arrested family members along with local authorities in the name of government corruption. At age 32, it appears bin Salman is going to be around for a while. MBS does merit our attention considering the times we live.

Time will tell…

Trend Update: Trouble Brewing on the Arabian Peninsula, November 2017

Posted in Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Saudi Arabia/Sheba/Dedan, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 11, 2017 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 21:13-15 The oracle concerning Arabia. In the thickets in Arabia you will lodge, O caravans of Dedanites. To the thirsty bring water; meet the fugitive with bread, O inhabitants of the land of Tema. For they have fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, from the bent bow, and from the press of battle.

Jeremiah 49:28a Concerning Kedar

The prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah define “Arabia” or modern day Saudi Arabia. This is the Hebrew word Arab. It means a desert plateau, a country east of Israel (Strong’s Concordance).

The following peoples and their descendants make up Arabia per the prophets: Dedan, Tema, and Kedar.

November 11, 2017: Tension is building on the Arabian Peninsula. At the core of the issue is conflict between Iran (Shia Muslims) and Saudi Arabia (Sunni Muslims). The Saudis and their allies have concerns about a nuclear Iran.

The Houthi Shia rebels in Yemen are supported by Iran. Earlier in the week, a missile was fired from Yemen that targeted Riyadh’s (Saudi Arabia) commercial International Airport. The missile was intercepted by the Saudi’s. There were no injuries or damage reported. The Saudi’s have stated Iran has committed an act of war.

Riyadh Airport

French President Emmanuel Macron is on the record blaming the Iranians. “The missile which was intercepted by Saudi Arabia launched from Yemen, which obviously is an Iranian missile, shows precisely the strength of their program.” -Emmanuel Macron

https://www.rferl.org/a/french-president-macron-blames-iran-yemeni-huthi-rebel-missile-launch-riyadh-calls-for-negotiations-ballistic-missile-development/28845939.html

United States Air Force sources are also confirming Iranian involvement in the missile launch from Yemen to Riyadh.

Cedar of Lebanon

With the announcement of the resignation, Hezbollah’s (Shia Muslim) leader Hassan Nasrallah accused Saudi Arabia of declaring war on Lebanon. “In short, it is clear that Saudi Arabia and Saudi officials have declared war on Lebanon and on Hezbollah in Lebanon, but I have to say this is a war on Lebanon.”

The concern is Lebanon erupting into a civil war like Yemen with Saudi and Iranian proxies. The Saudis have ordered all citizens to leave Lebanon. Saudi money is leaving Lebanon banks by the billions.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-41946310

 

This week, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman (MBS) has been arresting over 200 officials in the name of “corruption”. The 32 year old MBS is the future king of Saudi Arabia. At least 11 family members were corralled. Around 38 government ministers were detained. Military, religious, and business leaders have been arrested as well.

Money is moving out of Saudi Arabia by the hundreds of billions. Money is moving around the Middle East by the hundreds of billions. The rich and wealthy are freaking out in fear of having their assets seized. The Saudi government is having budget problems. Follow the money.

https://www.globalresearch.ca/real-motive-behind-saudi-purge-emerges-800-billion-in-confiscated-assets/5617466

 

Scripture is very clear. In the final analysis, the Saudis are going to get pummeled. Isaiah bears witness and confirms their fate.

Isaiah 21:16-17 For thus the Lord said to me, “Within a year, according to the years of a hired worker, all the glory of Kedar will come to an end. And the remainder of the archers of the mighty men of the sons of Kedar will be few, for the LORD, the God of Israel, has spoken.”
