Locust Swarms Gathering and Growing, April 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Pestilence, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on April 3, 2020 by paulthepoke

2 Chronicles 6:28 If there is famine in the land, if there is pestilence or blight or mildew or locust or caterpillar, if their enemies besiege them in the land at their gates, whatever plague, whatever sickness there is…

Granted, this is Solomon’s dedication prayer in Jerusalem. The context is Israel. But, it sure sounds like today’s world in the 21st century.

As a result of COVID 19 coronavirus, countries in East Africa are running short of pesticides to combat locusts and grasshoppers. Deliveries are being affected due to the spread of the coronavirus. Borders are being closed. Distribution and supply chains are being affected.

Cyril Ferrand is leading the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Ferrand had the following comments regarding the locust swarms.

“If we fail in the current (regional) control operations, because of lack of pesticides, then we could see 4 million more people struggle to feed their families.”

“They are very active, very voracious, and very mobile.”

“…If we don’t have pesticides, our planes cannot fly and people cannot spray and if we are not able to control these swarms, we will have big damage to crops.”

God is absolutely sovereign and He is absolutely in control.

This is God’s creation. Look at the interconnectedness world events. One event affects another and there is a chain reaction. It is not hard to come to the conclusion that famine is next. Then people will fight over food. The end result, more death.

These awful events happen for one reason and one reason only… Sin

Genesis 2:17 “…but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

Humanity has brought all of this upon itself. We have continued our slide to the point that we are the spoiled little brat who refuses to take responsibility for our actions.

But, there is hope. God the Father has given humanity an out.

Romans 5:17 For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.

Passover Sacrifice on Temple Mount??? Passover 5780/2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Spring Feasts, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on April 1, 2020 by paulthepoke

Exodus 12:6 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.

Exodus 12:8 They shall eat the flesh that night, roasted on the fire; with unleavened bread and bitter herbs they shall eat it.

The Sanhedrin has petitioned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and United States President Donald Trump to allow the Passover sacrifice to occur on the Temple Mount. The Pesach sacrifice has not taken place on the Temple Mount in 2000 years. The Sanhedrin believes the Temple Mount is the threshing floor purchased by King David. The Sanhedrin believes this sacrifice on the Temple Mount would bring an end to the COVID 19 pandemic.

“The only thing preventing the Jewish People from performing the Passover sacrifice is the Israeli government.” Rabbi Hillel Weiss, Spokesman for the Sanhedrin.

Weiss went on to further comment…

“Plurality in the form of 70 nations is a Biblical requirement for the Temple to be a House of Prayer for All Nations. Western liberal values and international law demand the equality of religions. We are proposing bringing a temporary altar for one day to sacrifice one lamb for the entire Jewish nation. The Samarians sacrifice hundreds of lambs every year. Any objection to this can only be based in racism and hatred.”

“We have been preparing, faithfully performing whatever we can to bring perform God’s will. Now it is in God’s hands to take it to its prophetic conclusion; the Pesach sacrifice on the Temple Mount. All of the inhabitants of the world need to place God’s will as it is expressed in the Bible foremost in their consciousness.” -Rabbi Hillel Weiss

The God appointed Spring Feasts begin at sundown on Wednesday, April 8, 2020 or Nisan 14, 5780.

Here is the letter from the Sanhedrin.

To the very  respected President of the USA

Mr Donald Trump.

To the very respected  Israel Prime Minister

 Benyamin Netanyahu

Twenty days ago we sent  you a letter requesting a permit for the sacrifice of one Passover lamb on  the Temple Mount, a copy which is also enclosed here in this letter. 

In these last twenty days the world has been changed  by the occurrence of a pandemic Covid 19 also which we have classified as a modern day plague.

As it is written in the Book of Samuel as well as the Book of Chronicles, we see that two times  the God of Israel canceled a plague inflicted on the Nation of Israel. Once, this divine act of mercy was brought about after Israel offered the Passover lamb in Egypt and the second time was when King David acquired the site of the location for the Temple and built the altar on this exact site in the yard of the Temple Mount.

Twenty one days from now, the 14th of the month of Nissan, will be the time for sacrificing the yearly Passover lamb. Like the original Passover sacrifice ended a plague and opened the door for Israel to go out into freedom, the same sacrifice brought this year will be intended to free all of  humanity from the yoke of evil and sins, preparing them to receive the Divine support, and healing them from this harsh pandemic.

As in happened in Egypt, this sacrifice which stopped the plague  at the doors of sons of Israel and set them free from slavery in the time of Moses again now will stop this modern day plague by renewing the work of the Temple for the first time in over 2,000 years. 

Mr President , you and Mr Netanyhu can immediately install the right values and laws for the entire human  race and all of creation in this world by letting Israel obey the laws of the Torah of Israel which requires us to sacrifice the Passover lamb. 

It is written in Zachariah and Isaiah that the remnants which God will call from all the nations will ascend to the Mountain of the God of Israel. We humbly ask, let this be so before a greater war will come. This is an  opportunity to change history and move all of mankind towards the light of mercy and justice.

Sincerely, 

Dov Stein

Secretary 

The Court of Sanhedrin 

 Jerusalem Israel

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!”

Revelation 6:5-6 When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. 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!”

Jesus has opened the scroll and initiated judgment with a series of seals, trumpets, and bowls. With the opening of the third seal, John speaks of a time when it will cost a day’s wage for food. About 2,000 years ago, a denarius was a day’s wage for labor. We are living in and witnessing historical times and events. However, we are not witnessing the third seal of Revelation.

In an unprecedented move, the United States Federal Reserve slashed interest rates to ZERO! A new round of quantitative easing will be initiated worth $700 billion in treasuries and mortgage backed securities.

Emergency lending for banks has been reduced to .25%. Repayment has been extended to 90 days.

Requirement ratios for banks has been reduced to ZERO.

Here is the statement from the Federal Reserve.

“The coronavirus outbreak has harmed communities and disrupted economic activity in many countries, including the United States.”

“…is prepared to use its full range of tools to support the flow of credit to households and businesses and thereby promote its maximum employment and price stability goals.”

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/15/federal-reserve-cuts-rates-to-zero-and-launches-massive-700-billion-quantitative-easing-program.html

Here is the latest statistical data from around the globe.

  • 169,000+ infected globally
  • 6,500+ deaths
  • Spain is on lock down.
  • France is on lock down.
  • Germany is reported to close its borders on Monday.
  • Nike and Apple have essentially closed all stores globally.
  • United States has 3,600+ cases
  • States are closing public schools.
  • Hoboken, NJ has issued a 10:00 p.m. curfew.
  • Universities are moving to on line instruction and closing campi.
  • College and professional sporting competition has been suspended.

Many critics state there is much hyperbole and over reaction with the media reporting and government response to the coronavirus COVID 19. I would encourage those critics to look at Italy. Cases are now over 24,000 and the death toll is increasing. Physicians are now making decisions on who gets care and who does not. Hospitals and health care providers cannot meet demands. The number of cases has doubled in the last four days.

https://www.propublica.org/article/this-coronavirus-is-unlike-anything-in-our-lifetime-and-we-have-to-stop-comparing-it-to-the-flu

We do not want videos of overwhelmed hospitals and health care workers making decisions in the parking lot on who gets care and who does not.

Revelation 6:7-8 When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.

One quarter of the earth will be affected by death with the fourth seal! 1/4 of 7.8 billion is 1.95 billion!

Please understand. What we are watching and living is a human tragedy. I do not want to minimize this. But, this is nothing of the scope and scale of what is to come. We are not in the Revelation seals. There is time now.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

1 John 2:2 He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.

Red Heifer Update: Candidate Identified, March 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , on March 12, 2020 by paulthepoke

The following is from the Temple Institute YouTube Channel.

Important update from the Temple Institute concerning the status of the red heifer candidates that the Temple Institute is raising in Israel. Rabbi Azariah Ariel, head of the Institute’s Kollel research department, and and expert on the halachic laws concerning the red heifer, reports on the heifers’ current status and the Institute’s future plans.

Red-heifer temple instititue

The Temple Institute has multiple red heifer candidates. The heifers are approximately one year old. Some of the hairs on the heifers are not quite red enough yet. Ranchers have indicated the hairs can turn the appropriate shade of red to qualify in the upcoming year.

The ashes from the sacrificed heifer will be on behalf of the people of Israel. Priests are being trained for the sacrificial procedure.

The sacrifice of the red heifer should take place across from the Temple Mount. Currently, the plan is to sacrifice the identified red heifer on the Mount of Olives.

See the link below for the Temple Institute video with Rabbi Azariah Ariel, Head of the Institute’s Kollel Research.

Let’s look at the qualifications of the red heifer per the Bible in Numbers 19:1-2.

Numbers 19:1-2 Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, “This is the statute of the law which the Lord has commanded, saying, ‘Speak to the sons of Israel that they bring you an unblemished red heifer in which is no defect and on which a yoke has never been placed.

The ashes from the sacrifice of the red heifer are necessary for purification prior to the building of the Temple.

Interpretation of verses provided by the Temple Institute. This is the criteria used for the identification of the red heifer.

…and take a heifer… Since the verse instructs us to take a heifer, we do not purchase a calf and wait for it to grow older while in our custody; “and take a heifer” means that the act of acquisition has to take place while the animal is a heifer. However, if a red calf is available, a price can be set with its owner, and the transaction can be concluded, but we do not take possession until it reaches the proper age as mandated by the Bible.

A heifer by definition is a female cow.

…an unblemished red heifer in which is no defect… This means that the presence of as few as two hairs of any other color will render it invalid. Even its hooves must be red. It must also be totally free from any physical blemish or defect, whether internal or external. A list of blemishes that would disqualify the animal for sacrifice are noted in Leviticus 22.

…on which a yoke has never been placed. The red heifer must have never been used to perform any physical labor. This would include riding, or even leaning on her. But if a yoke were placed upon her even once, even if she were not used to plow – this would be enough to render the heifer unfit for use.

Three to four years of age is an oral tradition that has been passed down through the generations.

The innocent, shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross is the fulfillment of forgiveness and the release from sin.

Hebrews 9:22 And according to the Law, one may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.

As the red heifer was and will be again sacrificed outside the city limits of Jerusalem, so was Jesus Christ. As the sacrifice of the red heifer is for the purification and consecration of the people of Israel, so was and is Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 13:12 Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people through His own blood, suffered outside the gate.

Christ’s sacrifice is not only for the people of Israel, but for all the people of the world. He is the sacrifice for all sin for all time.

1 John 1:7 but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.

Dr. Charles Nenner Housing Update, Wall Street Blood Bath, March 2020

Ecclesiastes 7:12 For the protection of wisdom is like the protection of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it.

Proverbs 27:12 The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.

One of the most influential Cycle Researchers in the World, Charles Nenner has recently release his charts on the housing industry. Please keep in mind, this information was released before the onset of COVID 19, the coronavirus. This was also released before the Saudis and the Russians engaged in a price war in the oil markets.

Charles Nenner a World Class Market Researcher has sent me his chart of Lennar which he uses as a proxy for the US Housing Market. The chart shows a slowing until late in 2020. However, as a separate asset class this may be a great investment to earn excellent cash flow from a conservative investment.

Click on the link below for Nenner’s thoughts.

 

No one knows how badly the Coronavirus will affect the Global Economy or the Individual Family. However, the world is connected. Be prudent, take precautionary actions such as extra food, medicine, fever reducers, water, and additional cash at home. Discuss Financial exposure with your Advisor, review the asset classes.

Michael shared his thoughts a couple of weeks ago regarding the financial and economic impact of the coronavirus. These comments are more timely than ever. Click on the link below for Michael’s insights.

 

Today was a certified train wreck in the financial markets. Russia and Saudi Arabia have engaged in a war over the price of oil. The result was a crash in the price of oil. The price for a barrel of oil dropped 24% in a day. West Texas Crude settled at $31.13 per barrel.

The Dow Jones Industrial, S&P 500, and the NASDAQ were all off by over 7% today. Circuit breakers kicked in less than 5 minutes into trading and the markets were stopped for 15 minutes.

The 10 year treasury note closed below .5% or 50 basis points. The 30 year noted was below 1.0%

COVID 19 continues to grow across the globe. Italy has officially quarantined the population of the entire country.

  • 113,000+ infected globally
  • 4,000+ deaths globally
  • Italy approaching 10,000 cases
  • 112 countries and regions affected
  • 605 cases in the United States

 

Corona Virus/COVID 19 Update, March 8, 2020

Leviticus 13:46 He shall remain unclean as long as he has the disease. He is unclean. He shall live alone. His dwelling shall be outside the camp. 

March 8, 2020: This is what the world is doing on a global scale. People infected with COVID 19, the corona virus, or Wuhan virus, take your pick, are being quarantined and isolated.

Italy COVID

Italy made a major move to stop the progression of the disease. The northern part of the country has been blocked off from the rest of the country. 17 million people have been effectively quarantined. The Italian government states people must “absolutely avoid any movement into and out of the areas.”

The decree is in effect until April 3, 2020. To date, 85% of the cases are reported in northern Italy.

Even the Vatican has its first case.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/italy-plans-large-scale-lockdown-in-countrys-north-to-fight-coronavirus-11583613874

The largest number of cases outside of China are located in Italy, Iran, and South Korea. Roughly 21,000 people are infected in these three countries.

Cities and municipalities in the United States appear to be ill prepared and behind the curve to manage the corona virus. The ability to assess and diagnose patients infected is poor. Diagnostic kits are limited. To date, about 1,600 people have been tested.

Effective Monday, March 9, 2020, 2.1 million testing kits will be distributed to commercial labs which equates to 850,000 people being assessed. This is per the Center for Disease Control (CDC). The CDC mandates two swabs per patient.

Dr Anthony Fauci is the head of the infectious diseases unit at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). He states there will be 4 million test kits available by the end of the week.

Click on the link below for Dr. Fauci’s comments on the Meet the Press Sunday morning.

 

Current statistics from the United States:

  • 516 infected
  • 21 deaths
  • 33 states and DC reporting cases

Look for numbers to spike in the United States moving forward. Testing kits are beginning to be manufactured and distributed.

Micah 5:2 But as for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Too little to be among the clans of Judah, From you One will go forth for Me to be ruler in Israel. His goings forth are from long ago, From the days of eternity.

Bethlehem: 19 people have tested positive in the birth place of Jesus. Infected patients have been transferred to Jericho. Israel Defense Minister Naftali Bennett has closed down the city until further notice. Only the transport of goods will be allowed in and out of Bethlehem. The closure was coordinated with the Palestinian Authority.
