Market Changing? Raise Cash? -Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 25, 2022 by paulthepoke

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

Proverbs 14:16 One who is wise is cautious and turns away from evil, but a fool is reckless and careless.

Cash is Trash? Think Again! I have been in many Stock Cycles, many Bond Cycles, through a few 18-year Real Estate Cycles and having a Cash Reserve on hand to insure against credit line restriction is good business, So Cash is not always Trash. Cash is also a separate asset class.

When the Economy gets in trouble, the Banks will take back their CREDIT LINES!

Having cash, savings, checking, and bills: $1, $5, $10 dollar bills, is reassuring to carry you through any slow period. We have all done well in the last couple of years, maybe it’s time to take some profit or refinance and take some cash.

I have been suggesting maybe it is time to take a little money off the TABLE! Trees do not grow to the sky, and it is often nice to have some cash to supplement through a soft patch or use for an Opportunity! Cash is not always TRASH!

However, DO NOT SPEND this money, the cash is for opportunities or reserves.

When the Recession hit in 2020 the Stock Market dropped like a rock, and it was difficult to get out. More and more of my clients have their Asset Allocation overweighted in the Stock Market. The Stock Market has had a very good run and perhaps it is time to take a profit and place the Capital in another ASSET CLASS!

World famous cyclical economist Charles Nenner weighs in on the market with his proprietary charts.

Michael reviews where he thinks we are in the 18 year Real Estate Cycle.

Real Estate Rentals add diversification, Cash Flow, Capital Gains, and are a separate asset class. If you or your clients are overweighted in Equities, perhaps change Assets to Real Estate. Real Estate and especially Rental Real Estate is “Counter Cyclical” to the Stock Market and often Capital will flow out of one Asset Class into another. Real Estate often benefits! Self-Directed IRA’s and Self-Directed 401K’s are ideal. Real Estate Rentals not only provide an excellent Cash Flow, but also act as an Inflation Hedge.

Michael addresses charts from the Federal Reserve. In Q1 of 2020, there was $6.3 Trillion of stimulus unleashed into the Economy and that ignited INFLATION! Once worker make $20 an hour, they are not going back to $12 an hour.

Are economic bubbles beginning to pop? The economy appears to be cooling.

Please check with your Financial Advisor to discuss what is right for you. I do not advocate that all of your assets be in Real Estate, nor do I believe all of your assets should be in the Stock Market.

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on January 19, 2022 by paulthepoke

Michael Douville and Paul Lehr talk about modern day Turkey and it’s economy. How does this relate to Biblical prophecy?

Who are these ancient names and peoples as it relates to modern day countries? Ezekiel 38-39 and Revelation 6 are discussed. What do the prophecies actually say? Is this relevant to today’s world?

Geo political economics are the center piece. Oil and Gas are in play and everyone wants a piece of the action. Russia wants to control the region and the flow of energy to Europe.

Who is Turkey’s president Recep Erdogan? What is his relationship with Russia’s Vladimir Putin?

Turkey’s Lira is a crashing currency. The cost of goods is going up. Food costs are rising rapidly. Turkey is at risk for hyperinflation. Is Turkey running out of money? What does the future hold for Turkey?

Developing… Russia’s Mammoth Military Movement from Siberia to Ukraine

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Fake News???, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on January 17, 2022 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:2-4 “Son of man, set your face against Gog of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. Prophesy against him and declare that this is what the Lord GOD says: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws, and bring you out with all your army—your horses, your horsemen in full armor, and a great company armed with shields and bucklers, all brandishing their swords.

With a pretty high degree of certainty, ancient Magog is likely modern day Russia.

Ukrainian government websites were hit with an unprecedented attack this past week. Tech experts believe Russia was likely responsible.

Russia is moving massive amounts of military hardware and troops on railway from the Eastern Military District west towards the Ukraine. It appears the equipment and troops are beginning to arrive near Ukraine.

We will look at geography and troop mobilization around Ukraine.

Russia is spending millions upon millions of rubles to move equipment and support troops. This is a seriously expensive logistical undertaking. And it will take millions of rubles to maintain these troops once they arrive at their destination.

For those who want to stay current with the news pouring out of the Middle East and events happening around Russia and Ukraine, follow Czekmate at ValorTube. Czekmate is dialed in with real world experience and understanding.

Are we watching the hook being set in Gog of Magog’s jaw? Is Vladimir Putin Gog? Are we witnessing the moment when Gog begins to move his massive military towards the Middle East and ultimately Israel?

Lastly, there was a significant underwater volcanic explosion near Tonga. The blast measured close to 7.4 on the Richter scale. The Pacific was put under Tsunami warnings. Significant damage was done locally in and around Tonga. 4 foot waves even reached with west coast of the United States from thousands of miles away.

This Week in Prophecy: Russia & Kazakhstan, Peace Keepers, Oil & Bitcoin, Lights out in Lebanon

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 14, 2022 by paulthepoke

This Week in Prophecy

News related to Ezekiel 38-39 continues to make headlines. This time, Kazakhstan is the place of attention. Fuel prices have doubled. The government has resigned. President Tokayev has called on the help of the Russians. Russia is leading a coalition of countries to quell the violence of the “terrorists”. These “peace keepers” have orders to “shoot to kill”.

China is concerned about oil exports from Kazakhstan.

President Tokayev of Kazakhstan pulled the plug on the internet. Kazakhstan is the second largest country when it comes to Bitcoin mining.

The lights are out across Lebanon again. The currency continues to collapse and prices of basic goods and services continue to spiral out of control.

This Week in Prophecy: NASA, Aliens, Main Stream Media, and the Bible

This Week in Prophecy

https://valortube.com/groups/paul-lehr/

NASA has reached out to 24 theologians to assess how humanity would respond to the discovery of alien life. This story was released during the recent holiday season.

The Bible has answers. ALL things were created by and for Him (Jesus). And because of His work on the cross and His resurrection, ALL things in the universe are under His subjection.

Colossians 1:16 For in Him all things were created, things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities. All things were created through Him and for Him.

Colossians 1:20 and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through the blood of His cross.

Yes, the Bible also has answers about hybrid offspring. Yes, I understand this will be perceived as crazy talk by many. One may not like the Biblical historical account, but answers are given.

Genesis 6:4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of mankind, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

There are many verses that point to the “giant” offspring of this sordid affair. There are the Nephilim, Rephaim, Zuzim, Emim, Amorites, Anakim, Goliath and his brothers. Physical descriptions are provided along with heights and other details.

Pope Francis is willing to baptize aliens in the name of Christ.

The mainstream media is publishing articles on the topic of UFOs. The Hill, The Guardian, The New York Times, and DailyMail do not fancy themselves as fringe and conspiracy sources of information. The History Channel has produced a series on US government declassified information related to the topic of UFOs.

Recently deceased US Senator Harry Reid from Nevada wanted resources to be allocated to the Pentagon and other agencies to investigate Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs).

Trey Smith at GodinaNutshell has made multiple videos on these topics. I get the sense his work from a decade ago is about to become more relevant.

Brace yourself, this topic is coming regardless of what we think about it.

Matthew 24:37 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. -Jesus

Michael Douville’s 2022 Economic Preview

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on January 4, 2022 by paulthepoke

Proverbs 1:5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels…

Ecclesiastes 7:19 Wisdom makes the wise man stronger than ten rulers in a city.

Proverbs 9:9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.

We have been talking about Inflation and Retirement for a couple of years and it’s here now! Inflation is here. It will cause Economic and Social Turmoil; watch Turkey!

If you are retired this is a crisis for you. If you do not think Inflation can happen here, think again! How is Inflation going to affect you! November Durable Goods, a component of the CPI went up 14.9%. You are going to get run over!!!!!

You need an investment that changes with the Economy and can increase the revenue with Inflation. Single Family Rentals are one of the best Inflation Hedges we can buy! In 1975, the last time the Durable goods were that high, it ushered in 6 years of double-digit Home Prices. It was not just Houses; EVERYTHING went up!

What is going to happen if the dollar goes down in strength? Look at what is happening in Turkey with a devalued currency. The Lira continues to crash. EVERYTHING goes up!

This Week in Prophecy: Turkish Lira Continues Crashing, Russian Military Logistics, Mark of the Beast & Sweden

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 27, 2021 by paulthepoke

This Week in Prophecy

https://valortube.com/groups/paul-lehr/

Ezekiel 38-39 continues to dominate our modern day headlines in December 2021. Today we will look at the economic policies of Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan. He decided to cut interest rates again this week. And again, the Turkish Lira continues to crash. Erdogan decided to raise the minimum wage by 50% starting next year. Again, the Turkish Lira continues to crash. Can you say INFLATION!!!

Russia continues to pour military resources to the Ukraine border. Russian President Vladimir Putin is going to a lot of effort with military logistics and transport. Do you think he is bluffing???

Mark of the Beast Watch… Sweden has unveiled technology with chip implants and cell phones. At some point, a really bad guy will insist you take a mark or you will not be allowed to participate economically.

Wishing every one a Happy New Year!!

This Week in Prophecy: Russia & Ukraine, US Murders, UN Peace & Safety Statue, China Speed, Pope Francis & Adultery

This Week in Prophecy

https://valortube.com/groups/paul-lehr/

Russia appears to be building up military hardware and troops on the Ukraine border. Is an invasion imminent? Putin wants to control the energy market to Europe. Ukraine and Israel stand in the way.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.

Murders are up big time in the United States. Metropolitans around the country are setting homicide records.

The United Nations has unveiled their Guardian of “Peace and Safety” Statue. The figure is conjuring up images of Daniel 7’s beast. Be alert and on guard when humanity starts talking about “peace and safety”.

1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

China unveiled plans for their hypersonic plane that allegedly will speed up to 12,000 mph. The South China Morning Post told us what they wanted us to hear regarding the project.

Lastly, Pope Francis provided a commentary on his sliding scale of sin. In regards to a French cleric… “It was a failing against the sixth commandment (You shall not commit adultery) but not a total one, one of small caresses, massage given to his secretary — that is what the accusation is. There is a sin there but not the worst kind.”

James 2:10-11 Whoever keeps the whole law but stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. For He who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” If you do not commit adultery, but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker.

United Nations “Peace and Safety” Statue

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on December 9, 2021 by paulthepoke

1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. (King James)

UN Photo, Emanuel Elias

Per Twitter: A guardian for international peace and security sits on the Visitor’s Plaza outside #UN Headquarters. The guardian is a fusion of jaguar and eagle and donated by the Government of Oaxaca, Mexico @MexOnu. It is created by artists Jacobo and Maria Angeles. UN Photo/Manuel Elías

The Greek word for “safety” in the verse from 1 Thessalonians 5:3 (King James translation) is ἀσφάλεια/asphaleia. The word is utilized three times in the New Testament.

Strong’s Concordance defines the word as: safety, security, reliability, firmness, certainty.

HELPS Word-studies: firmness that equates to security.

Thayer’s Greek Lexicon: firmness, stability; certainty, undoubted truth; security from enemies and dangers, safety.

Does anyone see the United Nations as the guardians for peace, stability, certainty, reliability, safety or security???

Just another sign of the times…

One way or another, Jesus is getting closer…

While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (English Standard Version)
