Locust Update: Winter 2021

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on January 28, 2021 by paulthepoke

Joel 1:4 What the gnawing locust has left, the swarming locust has eaten; and what the swarming locust has left, the creeping locust has eaten; and what the creeping locust has left, the stripping locust has eaten.

Granted, the context of Joel 1 is the land of Israel. The prophet is giving us a preview into the future of the Promised Land.

United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)

East Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, January 2021: As if COVID-19 was not enough. The spawn and spread of locust swarms are growing again. Kenyan officials indicate this is the worst outbreak in 70 years. Increased rainfall is being blamed as part of the reason for the outbreak.

The United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is on location with updates.

“We saw very intense rainfall in areas of northeastern (Kenya), where normally it’s very dry. Normally there would be nothing there for locusts to feed on. They wouldn’t be able to survive there for long. But that wasn’t the case last year. And you got so much fodder which the locusts were able to feed on, and they were able to breed.” -Hamisi Williams, FAO Deputy, Kenya 

Experts state locusts can multiply x20 over the course of 3 months.

The following quotes are from Keith Cressman, FAO Sr. Locust Forecasting Officer.

“The other thing is that they have this great capacity to migrate. So they don’t get stuck in areas when conditions dry out. They just simply pick up and move to greener pastures. They fly with the wind and can travel more than 100 miles in a day.”

“They can easily cross the Red Sea so they can go from Sudan to Saudi Arabia in a day, for example. They can easily cross from northern Somalia directly across the Indian Ocean to India and Pakistan.”

“Imagine a swarm the size of Manhattan in New York, which is not a very big swarm. That single swarm in one day will eat the same amount of food as everybody in New York and California.” -Keith Cressman, FAO Sr. Locust Forecasting Officer

FAO Deputy Director-General Laurent Thomas stated, “The last time Africa saw an upsurge of locusts approaching this scale, in the Sahel, it took two years and more than $500 million to bring under control. This (current) upsurge was even bigger, but East Africa is poised to end it, provided governments can keep those aircraft flying.”

By the way, they need $40 million more…

The swarms are moving closer to Israel. Locust plagues in Israel are a sign of the end of days per the prophet Joel. Just another sign of the times…

Proverbs 30:27 …the locusts have no king, yet all of them march in rank…

A Kingdom Divided

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Trend Update with tags , , , on January 6, 2021 by paulthepoke

Matthew 12:25 Knowing their thoughts, He said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand.” -Jesus

The United States of America needs to heed the warning. Jesus is talking. As a reminder, He is a prophet.

Our country, states, cities, and families need to pull together.

January 6, 2021, Washington, D.C.: A sad day in American history… As of night fall, here is a summary of events as provided by ZeroHedge.

This evening, Congress has returned to the House to certify the presidential election.

It would appear, both Democrats have prevailed in Georgia Senate races. The balance of power has shifted to the Democrats in the Senate. Democrats will now control the Presidency, The Senate, and The House of Representatives.

On our current path we are headed for being “laid waste”. We will go the way of history and be no more? Time will tell.

Morocco Joins Abraham Accords, Hanukkah 5781/2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on December 10, 2020 by paulthepoke

Washington, D.C., Hanukkah, December 10, 2020: President Trump announced Morocco has become the fourth country to formalize relations with Israel. Morocco, along with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan, has joined Israel in the Abraham Accords. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu refers to the agreement as the “circle of peace”.

The event occurred on the first day of Hanukkah.

In addition to normalization of relations with Israel, President Trump recognized Morocco’s sovereignty over the Western Sahara.

Trump continues to move forward with the peace initiative despite having the disputed election results contested in the Supreme Court.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took to Twitter where he posted his comments.

King Mohammed VI of Morocco did not have a formal statement at the time of this post. The king does not have a Twitter account.

Senior White House Adviser Jared Kushner hinted there could be more participants in the Abraham Accords including Saudi Arabia.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-israel-usa-morocco-idUSKBN28K2CN

John 10:22 At that time the Feast of Dedication took place at Jerusalem. It was winter…

Jesus attended the celebration of Hanukkah at the Temple. In the context of John 10, Jesus would come under fire for claiming to be God. The mob was ready to stone Christ.

John 10:28-30 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them out of My hand. My Father who has given them to Me is greater than all. No one can snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”

Of note, Jesus uses the word “snatch” two times. This the Greek word ἁρπάζω/harpazó. It means: properly, seize by force; snatch up, suddenly and decisively, like someone seizing bounty (spoil, a prize); to take by an open display of force (i.e. not covertly or secretly). -Helps Word Studies

This is the Greek word for “rapture”. Just an observation. My personal belief is the rapture occurs in and around the Fall Feasts.

But this point is an absolute fact. Believers are secure in the Father and the Son. No one is going to take us away from Them. This is eternal security.

Iranian Nuclear Physicist Assassinated, November 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , on November 29, 2020 by paulthepoke

November 27, 2020: Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, Iran’s top nuclear physicist has been killed. There are multiple, inconclusive reports as to how Fakhrizadeh met his demise. The car was destroyed by explosives and was riddled with gun fire. The incident occurred east of Tehran.

The Daily Mail claims to have intelligence indicating as many as 62 people involved in the plot including 12 assassins.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8997575/Assassination-Irans-nuclear-scientist-involved-62-people-including-12-gunmen.html

“He wanted to get martyred and his wish came true,” Fakhrizadeh’s widow.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei referred to Fakhrizadeh as… “the country’s prominent and distinguished nuclear and defensive scientist.”

Khamenei stated Iran’s first priority is the “definitive punishment of the perpetrators and those who ordered it.”

President Hassan Rouhani of Iran is blaming Israel for the assassination.

“We will respond to the assassination of Martyr Fakhrizadeh in a proper time. The Iranian nation is smarter than falling into the trap of the Zionists. They are thinking to create chaos.” -Iranian President Rouhani

Iran maintains their nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.

The following groups have declined comment at this time: Israel’s government, Israeli intelligence Mossad, President Trump, CIA, and EU Officials.

Of note, the United States has moved the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz and strike support back into the region after the assassination.

The United Nations is calling for restraint as tension increases across the Middle East.

Proverbs 1:5 Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance…

The Hebrew word for “hear” is shama. Translated, it means “to hear”.

And this is the point of the post. “Hear” and listen for yourself. Make your own determination. This is why this blog was started. Don’t take my word for it, look it up, and verify.

Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. hosted a press conference with former Mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani, Trump Campaign Senior Legal Advisor Jenna Ellis, and Sidney Powell at the RNC Headquarters in Washington D.C., on Thursday, November 19, 2020.

If you care about freedom of speech and freedom of press, I highly encourage each individual to take the time to “hear” what is actually said. “Listen” to Trump Legal Advisor words from their lips, not a commentary from the main stream press regarding the conference.

Below is the raw video and audio from the press conference. This has not been edited. The press conference is about an hour and a half.

As Pilate asked, “What is truth?”

Truth is information that is true to fact. My prayer is that God shines the light of truth on this matter of the 2020 Presidential Election. When the matter is completed, may truth be revealed for all to see.

Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.

Blood Red Iskitimka River, Kemerovo, Russia, November 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , on November 8, 2020 by paulthepoke

Revelation 16:4 Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of waters; and they became blood.

Iskitimka River, Kemerovo, Russia, November 7, 2020: Contamination has lead to the Iskitimka River turning red. Kemerovo is a city in southwest Siberia, Russia. Kemerovo is an industrial city of about 500,000. The culprit appears to be a chemically clogged sewage drain… allegedly.

Experts are not sure if the river is hazardous to the health of the citizens.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8924189/Russian-citys-rivers-run-RED-mystery-pollution-ducks-refuse-swim-toxic-water.html

Below are some quotes from locals.

“There are no ducks in the river, all are on the bank,” Andrey German, citizen.

“The city storm drainage system is a possible source of contaminated water,” Deputy Governor Andrei Panov, Kemerovo.

“Today it is not a river, it is like cranberry jelly,” Elena Dubrovskaya, citizen.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8924189/Russian-citys-rivers-run-RED-mystery-pollution-ducks-refuse-swim-toxic-water.html

The Revelation 16 verse is late in the order of the seven year Tribulation. Currently, we are not in the tribulation.

This event is the result of a clogged sewage drain spilling into a river in Siberia. None the less, the river is red. The critic can not explain it away.

Quakes in Various Places, Izmir, Turkey, October 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on October 30, 2020 by paulthepoke

Luke 21:11a There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences.

Map: Google

October 30, 2020: A 7.0 magnitude earthquake and aftershocks have struck southwest Turkey in the Aegean Sea. Izmir, Turkey appears to have taken the brunt of the damage.

As of this post, 21 people have died and over 725 have been injured. Small tsunamis were reported throughout coastal populations on the Aegean Sea.

For video and pictures of the event. Click on the link below from the Daily Mail.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8897247/Powerful-6-6-magnitude-earthquake-hits-Turkey-Greek-islands.html

This area is the home office to the seven churches in the book of Revelation.

Patmos is an island in the Aegean Sea. The word “Patmos” means: my killing. The Apostle John was sentenced to the island of “my killing”. Where are you going? My killing.

Patmos is a small island approximately 10 miles by 6 miles. It is a rocky island. Tradition has John receiving the “Revelation” in a cave on the south side of the island.

Historical Ephesus was the largest city of the seven churches.

This is the city for Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.

Ephesus was located on the Cayster River. The city was between the Maeander River to the south and the Hermus River to the north. The city was also a great seaport on the Aegean Sea. The geography allowed Ephesus to be a significant commercial destination. It was the most important port in the Aegean.

~

Ancient Smyrna today is Izmir, Turkey. It is located about 35 miles north of Ephesus. Smyrna was founded by the Greeks approximately 3,000 years ago. Ancient Smyrna was a port city and relied on commercial trade. The city was destroyed by an earthquake in 178 AD.

Today, Izmir is the most populous Aegean port city in Turkey. The city is predominantly Muslim. It is the third most populous city in Turkey. Izmir is home to Turkey’s second largest Jewish community of about 2,500. (Wikipedia)

Trump & the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, October 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Egypt/Nile River, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on October 28, 2020 by paulthepoke

October 23, 2020: During the announcement of the Israel and Sudan peace deal, President Trump took the time to comment on Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia and the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD). Trump made some remarkable comments encouraging Egypt blowing up the Ethiopian Dam.

“It’s a very dangerous situation because Egypt is not going to be able to live that way. They’ll end up blowing up the dam. And I said it and I say it loud and clear, they’ll blow up that dam. And they have to do something. They should have stopped it long before it started. I had a deal done for them and then, unfortunately, Ethiopia broke the deal, which they should not have done. That was a big mistake. They will never see that money unless they adhere to that agreement.” -President Donald Trump.

https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/trump-says-egypt-may-blow-ethiopia-dam

Watch and listen to Trump’s comments in the Tweet below.

The Nile, Tigris, and Euphrates Rivers are prophetic markers for the end times scenario. The prophets state the Nile River will go dry prior to the coming of the Messiah.

Zechariah 10:11b …And He will strike the waves in the sea, so that all the depths of the Nile will dry up…

Ezekiel 30:12 And I will dry up the Nile and will sell the land into the hand of evildoers; I will bring desolation upon the land and everything in it, by the hand of foreigners; I am the LORD; I have spoken.

There are multiple prophets in the Bible that says the Nile River will dry. The LORD states He is the cause. God tells Zechariah He will strike the waves in the sea, so that all the depths of the Nile will dry up… Something major in the Mediterranean Sea is going to happen.

See Isaiah 19 for more details and economic consequences of this event.

https://paulthepoke.com/category/egypt-nile-river/

All of these key prophetic rivers are in the headlines trending towards prophetic fulfillment. All of these rivers have significant and strategic dams that are affecting water and electrical resources for millions of people.

God’s chosen prophets warned us over 2,500 years ago. We should probably pay attention.

Israel & Sudan Agree to Peace, October 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on October 24, 2020 by paulthepoke

Washington, D.C., October 23, 2020: President Donald Trump announced yet another historic peace deal. This time, Israel and Sudan are partners. Sudan has been entered as a member of the expanding Abraham Accords.

President Trump made the announcement with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and Sudan’s Chairman of the Sovereignty Council General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan on a conference call. Below is a YouTube link of the press conference from the White House.

The focus of the plan is cooperation in agriculture, economy, trade, aviation, and migration issues.

https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/joint-statement-united-states-republic-sudan-state-israel/

President Trump says there are more Muslim nations looking to join the Abraham Accords including possibly Iran.

President Trump’s Senior Advisor Jared Kushner weighed in with his comments.

November 2017: Russian President Vladimir Putin invited then Sudan President Omar al-Bashir to Sochi for a meeting. Sudan was asking for Russian protection against American aggression. The Sudan president was removed in a coup. He was wanted by the International Criminal Court for genocide and war crimes. Omar al-Bashir is currently in jail for several accounts of corruption.

Genesis 2:13 The name of the second river is the Gihon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of Cush.

This is the first mention in the Bible of the land south of Egypt. The Hebrew word is Cush. It is translated as Cush or Ethiopia in the biblical text. It is a land in the southern Nile River valley. This is modern day Sudan.

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

With this announcement, we have some intrigue on Magog’s southern front…

The prophet Ezekiel stated Russia, Turkey, Iran and allies are prophesied to invade Israel (Ezekiel 38-39). Arguably, Sudan may join Gog and Magog (modern day Russia) in their invasion of Israel at some point in the future.
