Continuing the series… If you are an outreach person or a drop–in center worker and have random encounters, it will take many encounters with the same person to build a relationship of trust. Here is a guide and process you can go through at the intake stage that will help set the stage for an organic relationship of kindness.

You are building a relationship organically and verbally, recognizing that they are hurting by offering tissues, water, and maybe special treats that aren’t usually readily available to them. They are seeing you show acts of compassion and kindness. Ask them if they would like to take five minutes before you move on in order to eat or drink and just allow them to breathe. Ask them if they would like you to leave the room for a few minutes, or if they would like you to stay.

Instead of leading off with hugs, try loving the hurting individual by serving them with kindness and a bit of hospitality. For example, you could lead with, “I understand this is difficult; may I get you a cup of tea? Soda?” Keep candy bars in your desk, in a bag, in your car, or in your purse for times like these. A little chocolate, a cup of tea, and a box of tissues can go a long way in helping the person have their space and be allowed to feel what they are experiencing.

Conversations

Don’t force conversations. Instead, ask them after you have given them some time if they would like to talk about anything. Fight the urge to engage further. After all, at this moment of the intake, you are just getting them to open up to a relationship. Don’t force things too early. Don’t probe to get them to talk just because you have a heart that wants to help and is ready to listen. They might not be ready to talk. Although your heart may hurt, you are going to have to fight the urge to hug them and tell them it will be okay. Just remember we are setting the stage for an organic relationship built by the participant, not filling your need to hug and fix!

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.

Accept God’s Grace… Rodna Epley

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gospel, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 14, 2021 by paulthepoke

There is someone out there today whom God, our Father in heaven, wants to know that He can forgive you and He wants to more than anything. He already sees and knows every detail about your life all the way back to when He created you until now, even to the end of your life if you have an end.

He still loves you, immensely, intensely, more than you may ever realize in this life. Please do not give up. He can fix anything literally, no matter how bad, no matter how hurtful, no matter how impossible it seems. What seems unbearable and unforgiveable in this moment can change in an instant. No matter how many sins you have committed, especially the ones you think passed the threshold of God being able to forgive. All can be forgiven. Nothing is too hard for Him.

If you have written yourself off, God has written you back in. He is a good Father who will do anything to bring His son or daughter back home. Your sins which are many and too hurtful to even think about. Or perhaps you have lost feeling over them and that worries you, can be forgiven, all of them instantly. The entire weight of it all, no matter how heavy or ugly, is lifted off you. You will feel it go too. The weight of it gone, just like that.

Your Father loves you more than you can imagine. He is not condemning you. He wants to heal you completely, and He is the Healer. That is why He sent Jesus. That is why the Father walked this earth through His Son Jesus and took man to his worst end so that he can bring man to his best end, forever reconciled to Him.

Though it is a mystery, Jesus gave up His life so that the old nature of sin and the propensity toward sin can be put to death in you. He rose from the dead by the glory of the Father so that His life. The new nature of His own glory can be imparted to you. This is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

But He does not leave you in a state of only hope that can be disappointed. His glory wakes up within you as He fills you with His Spirit and the new nature of His own glory begins to operate in you.

Jesus went to be with the Father, and He showed you the way to the Father, and He sat down at the Father’s right hand on the very throne of glory, so that you can be seated there with Him right now and forever.

Allow yourself to be forgiven. Dare to see just how far God’s grace and glory can reach and transform. What have you got to lose? The very moment I decided to give God a 100% chance show me who He is, is the very moment He showed up. He was always there, but He showed me that He was there. He did not wait to interact with me. He only briefly waited for me to show a genuine attempt to know Him.

If this is for you, know that you are not alone, and that I am praying for you. Your Father in heaven does love you and can fix literally anything. All suffering is meant for His glory. The greater the suffering the more His glory is about to be released. It is at the point of being released. Please give Him that chance. In fact, the more you have sinned, the more you will be able to love God, because the depth of our ability to love corresponds to the depth of His forgiveness toward us.

Luke 7:45-47 Jesus said, “You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in. You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant oil. Therefore, I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.”

If this is for you, pray this with me,

“Father in heaven, thank you for giving me this chance to be forgiven. My sins, which are many, I give to you. Thank you for giving your Son Jesus to die for me on the cross and take my place. Thank you for raising Him from the dead by your own glory and raising me from the dead with Him. Thank you for seating Jesus at your right hand on the throne of glory and seating me there with Him. I know I do not deserve that and there is no way I can earn that position in Christ, but I receive it by faith. Your word says that I have access into your presence through the door of Christ and through your promises to me. Thank you that you loved me so much that you died for me even while I was still a sinner. You believed this day would happen when I would come to you and finally surrender my life to you. Without Christ I know that I can do nothing, but with Christ nothing is impossible, and all things are possible. I am trusting that your word is true and that you can make something wonderful of my life. I promise that if you give me all of you then I will give you all of me to the best that I know how. Baptize me in your Spirit and fill me with your glory Father. I believe that Jesus died for my sins and that Christ in me put to death the old nature in me. I believe that Jesus rose from the dead by the glory of the Father and raised me up with Him. I believe that Jesus went to be with the Father and brought me there with Him. I choose You Papa because You first chose me. I love You Father because You first loved me. Thank you for your wisdom. Thank you for your favor. Thank you for giving me your Spirit and making me perfect on the inside in the inner man. Thank you for the daily transformation of my mind that is to come as I make your word my home and you teach me how to be your child and to operate in your glory, which is Christ in me that I am learning to wear on me on the outside. Thank you for eternal life and for all that you will do in me from here on out. Thank you that you are strength in my weakness, that you are filling me with joy and taking away my sorrow, that you are imparting to me your vision for me so that I can know my life has meaning. I give you all of me because you gave me all of you. In Jesus’ mighty name I pray, Amen.”

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)

A Deceitful Heart??? Joshua of Ghana

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Joshua Ghana with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 8, 2021 by paulthepoke

TEXT: EXODUS 8:25-32

Key verse: “And Moses said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will intreat the LORD that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, to morrow: but let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the LORD.” (Exodus 8:29)

Photo: Wikipedia

The Scripture says, “The heart is deceitful above all things…” The assassination of Julius Caesar was the result of a conspiracy by many Roman senators led by Gaius Cassius Longinus. They were said to have stabbed Caesar 23 times. But the stab that pained and surprised the dying Caesar the most was the one made by his trusted ally, Brutus.

Man, by nature, is not to be trusted. Pharaoh had proven on several occasions that he was not to be trusted as he reneged on his agreement with Moses. In the passage under consideration, Moses thought it wise to tell him his fears and tried to obtain Pharaoh’s authentic assurance. But like every sinner who operates on the dictates of Satan, he could not keep his words.

There are people who enter into agreements they know they cannot keep. Their heart is deceitful. Believers should not be deceitful. Our ‘Yes’ must be ‘yes’ and our ‘No’, must be ‘no’, regardless of the consequence. We must not honour agreements only when it favours us. We must be honest enough to follow through to our promise, whether written or verbal. Some people slip into a lying mode when they discover that things are not working in their favour. In his dealings with Pharaoh, Moses offered no compromise with the evil intent of the king. Thus, he demanded that he let his people go so that they would offer their sacrifices to the Lord. Moses knew that if they accepted to do the sacrifices in Egypt, the Egyptians would stone them for sacrificing sacred things in their land.

As believers, we must not behave cowardly in standing for the truth and in defending the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. There is no room for compromise. Our motives must be pure as we relate with God and fellow men.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Integrity is not something you show others; it is how you behave in their absence.

Jubilee, Part 7, Jesus the Kinsman Redeemer

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gospel, Jubilee, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 6, 2021 by paulthepoke

Leviticus 25:23-25 The land, moreover, shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine; for you are but aliens and sojourners with Me. Thus for every piece of your property, you are to provide for the redemption of the land. If a fellow countryman of yours becomes so poor he has to sell part of his property, then his nearest kinsman is to come and buy back what his relative has sold.

In the previous post it was discussed how Satan is currently in charge of the world. God has given him authority since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden. The world is leased to Satan. God holds the title.

Deuteronomy 10:14 The heavens, indeed the highest heavens, belong to the Lord your God, as does the earth and everything in it.

God has the papers of ownership when it comes to the Earth.

Revelation 5:1 I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a book written inside and on the back, sealed up with seven seals.

Leviticus 25:24 Thus for every piece of your property, you are to provide for the redemption of the land…

God the Father has His price for the land of Earth. Because of sin, the land is cursed and there is a cost. God wants His payment in the currency of sacrificed, innocent blood.

~

Leviticus 25:25 If a fellow countryman of yours becomes so poor he has to sell part of his property, then his nearest kinsman is to come and buy back what his relative has sold.

Adam lost the deed to the Earth because of sin. Adam was unable to pay the price with his guilty blood. No other person has been able to redeem the land since. All humanity is guilty and slaves to sin. We are unable to pay for the land. Humanity does not have access to the land deed until the scene in Heaven (Revelation 5). Jesus is fulfilling His role as a Kinsman-Redeemer. Jesus is related to Adam (Luke 3:23-38). Jesus is a kinsman to the man, Adam, who lost the land.

~

Revelation 5:7 And He came and took the book out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne. 

Jesus takes the book from God the Father. Jesus wants possession of the papers.

Revelation 5:9-10 And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are You to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.”

The scene in Heaven (Revelation 5) is consistent with the customs of a Kinsman-Redeemer (Ruth 4). Both are conducted before the court and elders as witnesses before God. With His death, Jesus purchased humanity, His bride, from the bondage of sin. He has access to the scroll. Christ is sinless and innocent.

See Jeremiah 32:6-15 for land purchasing and redemption document customs. The conditions for the redemption of the Earth are Tribulation; seven seals, seven trumpets, and seven bowls…

Jesus, a man, and His bride, the church, will fulfill God’s command in the Garden of Eden.

This Week in Prophecy

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

A 2,000 year old silver coin was found in the City of David south of the modern day Temple Mount area.

Australia steps up its effort to combat COVID 19 with Quarantine Camps. Listen to commentary from public officials themselves and government websites.

Australia sent troops to the Solomon Islands to assist in the restoration of order. Australia looks to restore calm amid tension with the Chinese over Taiwan.

Israel continues to establish military and security ties with nations of the Abraham Accords. This time, Morocco is in the news with the Jewish state.

Russia had another busy week in international affairs. The Russians have begun to mass produce their hypersonic missile. Putin has also moved 94,000 troops with equipment to the Ukraine border. Is an invasion on the table? The UN mediator for the pending Libyan elections has resigned? What is going on and who stands to benefit from this move? I dare say Russia and Vladimir Putin.

The United States placed sanctions on the Nord Stream pipeline. What??? Perplexing and confusing policy coming from the Biden Administration.

President Recep Erdogan of Turkey demonstrates he has no idea how to run an economy. Erdogan supports interest rate cuts to a failing and weakening Lira. And the currency continues to go down in value which results in more inflation.

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

The Omicron variant of COVID is introducing itself on the scene globally. Experts on the scene report the variant to be “extremely mild”. This is not what you will here in the main stream press.

Peru experienced a 7.5 earthquake…

Ghislaine Maxwell Trial Under Way… Czekmate

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 1, 2021 by paulthepoke

Our frenemies… the Israeli security services…

This article is about a year old. The mass sexual entrapment operation known as “Mega” was also the name of a holding company owned by Jeffrey Epstein in the Virgin Islands. This story is certainly quite a bit worse than what this article reports.

The argument that this started as a “one-off” to entrap Bill Clinton is fudging the truth. For example, H.W. Bush was known to be inexplicitly hostile to the Israeli government in favor of richer Arab states. Some believed that he trysted outside of wedlock also. That alone prompts questions contradicting the premise of the enclosed.

Was Clinton simply more vulnerable? Or is he just a retrospective excuse?

The Russians were always big believers in sexual blackmail for the purposes of gathering intelligence and conducting influence operations. This article picks up around the time that the KGB was indigent following the collapse of the USSR. State secrets may have been for sale. Concurrently, Robert Maxwell (father of Ghislaine) was an occasional “go-between” to the Soviet Union during the later days of the cold war.

Did the Israelis simply seize an opportunity at a bargain rate?

Jim Comey’s (former director of the FBI during the Obama Administration) daughter, Maurene Comey, is leading the Maxwell prosecution. If the apple fell far from the tree, perhaps we will gain a better insight into the origins of Mega. However, the Southern District of New York team has a troublesome reputation for partisan gutter sniping, artfully disguised as diligent stewardship of the law. Should she conduct herself in line with that repute, the real basis for fear of many of the DC/New York élite will remain concealed.

Based on the limited scope of the charges, Czekmate assesses the later case being likelier. This prosecution is a deep state legal tourniquet.

Technofog has a great set of writeups on the Maxwell case being argued now. But what is not being discussed is the possibility that Mega went rogue AND/OR married up with another capability that has since been ‘off-shored’ known as HAMR (James Clapper’s, Former Director of National Intelligence, signature is literally on the memo for where this thing came from). This will have to be drawn by inference based on what details get picked up in court.

Czekmates warning remains the same: Rent-a-spies mixed with high technology is a perilous thing. The worlds of private/business intelligence and that of government intelligence have common frontiers that have become indistinguishably blurry. For the moment, both have a common objective: to keep the backstory of Mega under wraps. Sadly this includes keeping the hundreds to potentially many thousands of exploited boys and girls quiet.

Psalm 2

Why are the nations restless and the peoples plotting in vain? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers conspire together against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, “Let’s tear their shackles apart and throw their ropes away from us!”

He who sits in the heavens laughs, the Lord scoffs at them. Then He will speak to them in His anger and terrify them in His fury, saying, “But as for Me, I have installed My King upon Zion, My holy mountain.”

“I will announce the decree of the LORD: He said to Me, ‘You are My Son, today I have fathered You. ‘Ask it of Me, and I will certainly give the nations as Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth as Your possession. ‘You shall break them with a rod of iron, You shall shatter them like earthenware.’”

Now then, you kings, use insight; let yourselves be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with reverence and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, that He not be angry and you perish on the way, for His wrath may be kindled quickly. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!

Ecclesiastes 3:1 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven…

Dr. Charles Nenner is considered one of the Top Cycle researchers in the World. A former Goldman Sachs researcher, he is often interviewed on CNBC, Bloomberg, and MarketWatch.

If Dr. Nenner is talking, you should listen. Well… Michael Douville recently sat down with Dr. Charles Nenner to get his thoughts on the markets.

This is an in depth interview with Charles Nenner discussing Charles Nenner’s proprietary charts of the Dow, S&P, FANGS, and the Retail Chart.

Charles Nenner is out of the Stock Market, but other asset classes offer opportunity.

In addition, Dr. Nenner discusses the Bond Market with a forecast for declining interest rates.

The Gold market is soon poised for a multi-year upward trend; the Gold market has not yet bottomed, but is getting closer. Dividends from Gold mining stocks supplement income streams while waiting for the uptrend to begin.

Toll Brothers as a proxy for Real Estate is still in an uptrend until 2023.

Dr. Nenner says market volatility is coming. So… don’t listen to the media. The media is conflicted.

“Why” is the wrong question. “Why” has already happened.

“When” and “What” are more important. They tell you what is coming.

This Week in Prophecy: Russia & European Gas Market & Space, Putin the Peace Broker, Turkish Lira Crashing, Sudan Chaos, La Palma Volcano Landslides

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 28, 2021 by paulthepoke

This Week in Prophecy

The Ezekiel 38-39 prophecy continues to align with modern day headlines. Russia makes a big move in the natural gas markets by inking a deal with Iran in the Chalous Gas Fields of the Caspian Sea. Experts think this deal allows Russia to potentially control the European Gas Market. How will this affect global prices?

Russia launched a missile into space and destroyed one of their satellites. Why? Because they can…

Russian President Putin positioned himself as a broker with recent skirmishes between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

The Turkish Lira continues to plummet against the US Dollar. Inflation is hitting Turkey hard over the last year. Turkey is starved for cash and needs revenue in a hurry. Turkey vows to start drilling for natural gas in the eastern Mediterranean Sea.

Sudan’s government remains in chaos. Former Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has been released from house arrest and is likely to be reinstated as Prime Minister. Eventually Sudan will turn to Russia according to Ezekiel 38-39 and join in the coalition of countries against Israel. Remember, Sudan signed the Abraham Peace Accords with Israel during the Trump Administration.

The volcanic eruption on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands continues on for over 2 months. Earthquake activity is increasing in regards to intensity and the quakes are occurring at a deeper depth. Lava continues to flow and destroy property. Landslides are now taking place on the island. Tsunami warnings are being discussed.
