The following is an article and series written by Whitney Webb of mintpressnews.com.

Speed and momentum are gaining significant political ground in Israel for the rebuilding of the Third Temple.

It is a lengthy article but worth the time. Click on the link below the picture for the details.

JERUSALEM — In a troubling trend that continues to be overlooked by international media, the Temple Activist movement that seeks to destroy the Al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem and replace it with a Third Temple continues to advance its agenda. The movement’s forward progress is largely thanks to its successful efforts in recent years to rebrand as a “civil rights” movement — securing support from secular and religious Zionists alike — as well as to growing levels of support in Israel’s executive and legislative branches of government...

Ancient Ziklag and Lachish Discoveries

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on July 10, 2019 by paulthepoke

1 Samuel 30:1 Now when David and his men came to Ziklag on the third day, the Amalekites had made a raid against the Negeb and against Ziklag. They had overcome Ziklag and burned it with fire…

Joshua 15:20, 21, 31 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the people of Judah according to their clans. The cities belonging to the tribe of the people of Judah in the extreme south, toward the boundary of Edom, were… (included) Ziklag.

Ziklag was a member of the tribe of Judah. He was a man who inherited a city when the ancient Israelis were given the Promised Land under the leadership of Joshua. The word origin and meaning of Ziklag is relatively unknown.

Until recently, the actual location of ancient Ziklag has been a mystery and a point of controversy. But now, new evidence has emerged.

Under the leadership of Prof. Yosef Garfinkel, Head of the Institute of Archaeology at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem; the IAA’s Saar Ganor; and Dr. Kyle Keimer and Dr. Gil Davis of Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, the location of Khirbet a-Ra‘i has been identified.

Khirbet a-Ra’i is between Lachish and Kiryat Gat. The site is approximately 25 miles southwest of Jerusalem.

This location is believed to be where David took refuge from King Saul.

Pottery discovered at the site is consistent with the era of King David.

Times of Israel

2 Chronicles 11:5-12 Rehoboam lived in Jerusalem, and he built cities for defense in Judah. He built Bethlehem, Etam, Tekoa, Beth-zur, Soco, Adullam, Gath, Mareshah, Ziph, Adoraim, Lachish, Azekah, Zorah, Aijalon, and Hebron, fortified cities that are in Judah and in Benjamin. He made the fortresses strong, and put commanders in them, and stores of food, oil, and wine. And he put shields and spears in all the cities and made them very strong. So he held Judah and Benjamin.

An ancient fortified wall has been recently discovered in Lachish.

Prof. Yosef Garfinkel, Head of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Institute of Archaeology recently made the following statements.

“We looked in three places, and ultimately, in the northern section, we found a wall between Layer 6 and Layer 4. Later the excavators reached a floor that stretches to the wall, which could be dated using olive pits found beneath the floors. Samples of the pits were sent to the particle accelerator at Oxford, which ruled that the wall had been built around 920 B.C.E., which was exactly the rule of Rehoboam, son of Solomon and grandson of David.”

See the links below from Haaretz and The Times of Israel for more details.

1 Samuel 27:5-7 Then David said to Achish, “If I have found favor in your eyes, let me be assigned a place in one of the outlying towns, so I can live there. For why should your servant live in the royal city with you?” That day Achish gave him Ziklag, and to this day it still belongs to the kings of Judah. And the time that David lived in Philistine territory amounted to a year and four months.

And once again, the Bible confirms archaeology…

Breaking… California Earthquake

Luke 21:11a There will be great earthquakes… -Jesus

Developing Story…

Ridgecrest, CA: A 7.1 magnitude quake has occurred on Friday evening at 8:19 p.m. This trembler comes on the heels of a 6.4 magnitude quake that happened the day before on Thursday.

USGS

Ridgecrest is located about 150 miles northeast of Los Angeles and about 230 miles west of Las Vegas. Ridgecrest has a population of about 27,000 people.

Fires are reported in the Ridgecrest area. Highway damage was noted from the quake on July 4th. Injuries are indicated.

This is a preview of what Isaiah says is to come. See Isaiah 24-27 for complete details of the end times geological scenario in Isaiah’s Apocalypse.

Mexico Hail Storm, July 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , on July 2, 2019 by paulthepoke

Guadalajara, Mexico: Up to five feet of hail were dropped over night on the Mexican city during a recent storm. The city is home to five million residents. Guadalajara is located north of Mexico City. The city’s elevation is approximately 5,100 feet above sea level.

Revelation 16:21 And great hailstones, about one hundred pounds each, fell from heaven on people; and they cursed God for the plague of the hail, because the plague was so severe.

In the original Greek, the weight of the hailstone is a talent.

ταλαντιαῖος (talantiaios)– A talent of silver: approximately 100 pounds.

100 Pound Hail?

•1 gallon of water = 8.35 pounds

•100 pounds of water = approximately 12 gallons

•12 gallons = 1.6 cubic feet = 18” sphere (approximate)

Hail and Updraft

•Pea  24 mph

•Nickel  46 mph

•Golf Ball  64 mph

•Baseball  81 mph

•Softball  103 mph

Largest Hail in United States (Nebraska) 5” across

Largest Hail in World (Middle East) 10” across

The event above described in Revelation 16 is during the last third of tribulation judgments. The context is the bowl judgments. The event that occurred in Mexico is not a fulfillment of Revelation 16.

Granted, these were not 100 pound hailstones observed in Mexico. The weather event in Mexico demonstrates there is clearly enough water for the volume of hail described in Revelation 16.

As of July 2019, We are not in the tribulation. The context of the tribulation is global. When the seven year tribulation rolls around, one will not have to ask the question, “Are we there yet?”

Job 38:22-23 Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, or have you seen the storehouses of the hail, which I have reserved for the time of trouble, for the day of battle and war?

Bahrain: Peace to Prosperity Workshop, June 2019

June 25, 2019, Manama, Bahrain: Under the guise of Jared Kushner, the Peace to Prosperity work shop has begun. Kushner has dubbed the peace plan as the “opportunity of the century”.

Kushner opened the conference with a speech.

“Today is not about political issues. The goal of this workshop is to begin thinking about these challenges in a new way. To work together to develop a concrete plan to try to achieve it. Imagine a new reality in the Middle East … Imagine a bustling tourist center in Gaza and the West Bank. Imagine people and goods flowing securely throughout the region as people become more prosperous. This is not a stretch, it is the historic legacy of the Middle East.” -Jared Kushner

See the link below courtesy of i24 News for Kushner’s complete comments. The speech is a little over 10 minutes.

Ezekiel 7:19 They cast their silver into the streets, and their gold is like an unclean thing. Their silver and gold are not able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD. They cannot satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs with it. For it was the stumbling block of their iniquity.

Zephaniah 1:18 Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to deliver them on the day of the LORD’S wrath; and all the earth will be devoured in the fire of His jealousy, for He will make a complete end, indeed a terrifying one, of all the inhabitants of the earth.

Kushner Unveils Economic Portion of Middle East Peace Plan, June 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gaza Strip/Philistia, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on June 22, 2019 by paulthepoke

The economic details of the Middle East Peace plan were released by Senior White House Adviser Jared Kushner. The plan calls for $50 billion to be sent to Middle East countries. $28 billion are scheduled to go to the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Details of the plan break down which country gets how much and specific projects are named. Currently, the plan is expected to take 10 years to implement.

The plan is being compared to the Marshall Plan for western Europe after World War II.

“One of the things that they did successfully (Marshall Plan) is that they didn’t just give aid but they infused money into the private sector and they created an environment in which businesses could thrive and capital could be invested. This is a similar notion.”

“If you can also get that whole region starting to lift, and if you can get a quicker flow of goods and people in all the different areas that are necessary in industry instead of bullets and munitions and war, then I think that will really lead to a big increase in investment in the area and more jobs and better quality of life and hopefully more peace along with it.” -Jared Kushner

The White House communicated via Twitter the plan called Peace to Prosperity. The economic plan is 40 pages. See the link below.

The economic plan is divided into 4 sections: Overview, Unleashing Economic Potential, Empowering the Palestinian People, and Enhancing Palestinian Governance.

See the link below for the specifics and details.

https://www.whitehouse.gov/peacetoprosperity/empowering-palestinian-people/

The plan is reported to have 179 economic projects. There are 96 pages worth of details and financing information. Economic programs and projects of the plan are noted in the link below.

Jared Kushner also conducted an interview with Reuters News. The interview is 4 minutes and 35 seconds. Click on the link below for Kushner’s comments.

Fund raising will be a part of the scheduled “workshop”. Wealthy Arab Gulf states are being encouraged to make contributions in funding the plan. The United States is also promising to assist with finances.

“The reason we’re calling this a workshop and not a conference is because we want to get feedback and hopefully finalize it so that we can then coordinate a lot of the aid efforts and investing efforts to really drive these results.” -Jared Kushner

The political piece of the plan is scheduled to be released at a later date. This is likely to occur after Israeli elections on September 17, 2019.

Nobody is making the claim, “There is peace and security.” But they are starting to talk about it with intent and purpose.

1 Thessalonians 5:3 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.

Sanhedrin Looks to Davidic Kingdom

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Trend Update with tags , , , , on June 20, 2019 by paulthepoke

2 Samuel 7:8-17 “Now therefore, thus you shall say to My servant David, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, “I took you from the pasture, from following the sheep, to be ruler over My people Israel. I have been with you wherever you have gone and have cut off all your enemies from before you; and I will make you a great name, like the names of the great men who are on the earth. I will also appoint a place for My people Israel and will plant them, that they may live in their own place and not be disturbed again, nor will the wicked afflict them any more as formerly, even from the day that I commanded judges to be over My people Israel; and I will give you rest from all your enemies. The Lord also declares to you that the Lord will make a house for you. When your days are complete and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your descendant after you, who will come forth from you, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. I will be a father to him and he will be a son to Me; when he commits iniquity, I will correct him with the rod of men and the strokes of the sons of men, but My lovingkindness shall not depart from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you. Your house and your kingdom shall endure before Me forever; your throne shall be established forever.”’” In accordance with all these words and all this vision, so Nathan spoke to David.

The modern day Sanhedrin has recently released a new coin honoring the Davidic Kingdom. The Sanhedrin is looking to re establish the line of Israel’s ancient King David.

The coin is gold-plated. David in gematria (Hebrew numerology) equals 14, equivalent to the word ‘zahav’ (Hebrew for gold). The coin contains 14 grams of 14 karat gold.

To emphasize this point, the coin was issued on the seventh day of the month of Sivan, the day after the holiday of Shavuot. According to Jewish tradition, King David was born and also died on the holiday of Shavuot. On Shavuot, Jews read the Book of Ruth which describes her union with Boaz, the grandparents of King David. -Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz

“The coin foreshadows the yearning for the return of the kingdom to Israel through the dynasty of the House of David, the Messiah of Israel, the judge of the world and who brings wisdom to it. We wait, the people of Israel for the redeemer, in flesh and blood, and even though he may tarry we continue to wait for him, every day. We commemorate US President Donald Trump in connection with his Messianic activities. Donald Trump is the numerical value of the Messiah, the Son of David, who comes from Edom. Which until now has taken great steps in the rebirth of Israel and the dignity of Jerusalem like a biblical figure which we mentioned first in the world by minting Trump coins.” -Rabbi Hillel Weiss, Sanhedrin Spokesman
