Job 21:7 Why do the wicked still live, continue on, also become very powerful?

1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life, is not from the Father but is from the world.

Caution, this is an adult conversation.

Saw a news clip this morning where a supposedly famous female designer was defending Harvey Weinstein by saying the way women dress now days is just asking to be touched inappropriately. Dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. If a woman wants touched, there won’t be any question about it. No still means no. Just because you have power & wealth, it doesn’t give you the right to be an asshat. Just because a woman wants to feel good about herself or feel sexy, it doesn’t mean she wants your attention or to be touched. Be a gentleman, not an entitled jerk!

Ephesians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

The following thoughts are from the other Paul, the Poke.

Serious question, are any of us any different than Harvey Weinstein? As people, we think the sins of another are far worse than anything we do. “Well I’m not as bad as Joe Blow!”

Here is the standard from Jesus Himself.

Matthew 5:28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Anyone out there innocent? Remember, pride and lying are sins as well.

There is a solution…got Jesus???

Romans 5:8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Ezekiel 38:4 And I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great host, all of them with buckler and shield, wielding swords.

Ezekiel 38:3 and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.

Ezekiel 38:6 Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

The ancient of people of Meshech, Tubal, Gomer, and Beth-Togarmah compose what is modern day Turkey. See attached link for historical evidence linking to modern day Turkey.

October 10, 2017: At this time, let us welcome more military troops of Turkey into the Syrian theater. The first time Turkey inserted troops into Syria was with Operation Euphrates Shield in August 2016. Turkey has begun their military build south toward Israel. The prophet Ezekiel in chapter 38 predicts a future invasion of Israel from the north.

Russia, Iran, and Turkey continue to agree to provide peace and stability to Syria. The de-escalation zone is the Idlib province in northwest Syria. Turkish troops are reported to be in the western part of the province. Russian troops are reported to be in the eastern part of Idlib.

Turkey says they will remain in Syria until the threat of terrorism is eliminated. Previously, Turkey had called for the ouster of President Assad in Syria. Now, they are confronting forces opposed to Assad. The following is a statement from Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim.

“As part of the reached agreement, Idlib will be taken in a security circle by the three guarantor states, and terrorist activities will be prevented. This is the second cross-border operation after Operation Euphrates Shield in Syria. Our aim is clear – tackling mass migration and hindering conflicts by reducing tensions,” Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim.

Prime Minister Yildirim said Turkey intends to create control points in Idlib for future deployments. Turkey is just getting started with their military hardware into Syria. The point is to stop further conflict between civilians and militant groups.

The military build towards the Golan Heights and Israel continues…

Ezekiel 38:23 So I will show My greatness and My holiness and make Myself known in the eyes of many nations. Then they will know that I am the LORD.

Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot: Messianic Psalm

Posted in Fall Feasts, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 6, 2017 by paulthepoke

Psalm 118:25-26 Save us, we pray, O LORD! O LORD, we pray, give us success! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD! We bless you from the house of the LORD.

Psalm 118 is known as the Messianic Psalm. As part of the Feast of Tabernacles Psalms 113-118 are sung and read. These are called the Hallel prayer (https://www.templeinstitute.org/tabernacles.htm).

About 2,000 years ago when Jesus made His triumphal entry in Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, the Sanhedrin freaked out. The Sadducees and Pharisees understood. The people were recognizing Jesus as the Messiah of Israel. All of the pieces were in place. The people were waiving palms. Jesus was claiming to be a direct descendant of King David. He was claiming to be the Son of God. The crowds were calling on Jesus to be their Savior. The term Hosanna is noted twice in the verses below. Hosanna is a cry. Save us now!

Matthew 21:8-9 Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!”

corner stone Jesus knew He would not be accepted as the Messiah at His first advent. Jesus is the rejected stone.

Psalm 118:22 The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.

The apostle Peter makes it crystal clear who the rejected stone is in the book of Acts and in his self-named epistle.

Acts 4:11 This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone.

1 Peter 2:7 So the honor is for you who believe, but for those who do not believe, “The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone…”

 

Later in the text of Matthew, Christ would lament of His rejection as Messiah over Jerusalem.

Matthew 23:39 For I tell you, you will not see me again, until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.’”

sukkot palmAnd we wait for His people Israel to recognize Him as the Messiah…But before He returns to Earth, this scene will be done in Heaven. Recall the words of the Lord’s Prayer, “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.”

Revelation 7:9-10 After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”

Our Daily Bread…Featuring Paul Beverly

Posted in Our Daily Bread with tags , , on October 5, 2017 by paulthepoke

We all have wants in life, but what are you willing to give? I believe you have to give freely, the same things you are wanting to receive. That goes for kindness, respect, love, all areas of life really. Being selfish will not be prosperous for long, so give unselfishly 😊

Doing what is right should be easy. But greed & selfishness fogs the brain & darkens the heart. Be content & give of yourself & you will be rewarded.

Luke 6:38 Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.

Proverbs 11:24-25 One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.

Proverbs 28:25 A greedy man stirs up strife, but the one who trusts in the Lord will be enriched.

Proverbs 11:24 One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.

Have a selfless and giving weekend my friends!!!

How to Make HUGE Profits without even Trying!…Featuring Michael Douville

Posted in Michael Douville with tags , , , , , , , on October 4, 2017 by paulthepoke

MichaelMatthew 16:2-3 He answered them, “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.’ And in the morning, ‘It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times. -Jesus

Fortune 500 firms have had a few very good Quarters: sell product in Euro’s, Pounds, Yuans, Kronas, Swiss Francs, and even Rubles then convert them to US Dollars! Sheer Genius! An explosion in profitability without any improvements in Productivity, Innovation, or the time honored increases in Plants and Equipment! No additional employees are needed that would affect the profits; just devalue the US Dollar. Consider the fact that the beginning of the year, the US Dollar Index fluctuated between 102 and 103 and now is hovering around 93; a decline or devalue of 9.7% The Euro stood at 105 January 1st of this year and as of Oct 1, 2017 it is 118; a gain or strengthening of 12.3%.   What this means is Ford can sell a car for $30,000 Euros and convert to US Dollars with a Year-Over-Year gain of better than 12%: Genius! All of the multinational firms which are most if not all of them are experiencing this phenomenon! The Equity Markets are up 15% YTD, the US Dollar has devalued 12%. Could there be a Correlation? Could the decline of the dollar force the Stock Market higher? Further, Economies outside of the US receive the added bonus of Loan Repayments repaid in much cheaper Dollars discounting the Debt! Everyone wins! However, everything cycles! The US Dollar cycle IS forecast to go much lower, but buckle up and hold on, not necessarily in a straight line and not necessarily for just a few months!

The Business Cycle is getting tired and the accumulation of Debt has been Historic. In tough times or perilous times, the US Dollar becomes the currency of choice creating demand; demand will raise the price which will have the opposite affect of a declining Dollar: Markets will drop and Economies stall. The Globe would be vulnerable to a Recession, which would enhance the race to the US Dollar. Debt would become more expensive and much more difficult to service, possibly precipitating defaults of weaker entities. Once started, the completion to the Business Cycle will finish; a brutal cleansing will take place. Those that recognize the Portends and Prepare will not only survive, but have intact resources to purchase Assets that may be discounted to levels that will not be available for Generations, possibly never again.

The completion of this Business Cycle could be very scary. It could affect millions of families. Business revenues could decline precipitously; many will fail. We have been through this before and will go though it again in our lifetimes; in each case Income was paramount to survival. Further, over-leveraged, debt burdened entities were the greatest at risk; there is still time to pay debt. Although there are no guarantees in Life, Good Times do not last nor do Bad Times; this cleansing cycle will give way to incredibly better times. There are many Top Analysts that expect the Dollar to eventually cycle to new lows over the coming years, which might cause the Stock Market to explode to much higher levels and Real Assets skyrocket to new levels creating Generational Wealth.

In the Great Recession, the rental portfolio was a Lifeboat providing consistent cash flow month after month even though the general Business climate was very poor. The paper cash value declined, but the Income fluctuated well less than 10% and the vacancy factor dropped, the maintenance factor dropped, the taxes and insurance all dropped mitigating the slight decline in Rental Revenue. The current Investment Horizon is a minimum of 7 years which should be well beyond any crisis and the goal is to catch the bottom of the Dollar decline and the peak of the current Real Estate Cycle. Please consult with your advisor, but please consider re-allocating a portion of your portfolio to very conservative, residential rentals for consistent monthly Income.

Sukkot/Tabernacles 5778/2017

Posted in Fall Feasts, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 3, 2017 by paulthepoke

Leviticus 23:33-36 Again the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘On the fifteenth of this seventh month is the Feast of Booths for seven days to the LORD. On the first day is a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work of any kind. For seven days you shall present an offering by fire to the LORD. On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation and present an offering by fire to the LORD; it is an assembly. You shall do no laborious work.’”

In October 2017 (Gregorian calendar), per the sighting of the new moon, The Feast is scheduled to begin on Friday, October 6th and proceed through Thursday, October 12th. In God’s timing, The Festival is scheduled to run from Tishri 15-21 (Hebrew calendar). Tishri 1 is declared when the new moon is sighted.

Part of the holiday is a road trip and vacation to Jerusalem. Every family needs to build a sukkah (singular). Families will build sukkot (plural). Sukkah can be translated as: booth, cottage, covert, pavilion, tabernacle, or tent. (Strong’s Concordance)

sukkotThe tents serve as a reminder to the forty years of wandering in the desert due to a lack of faith in God after the Exodus from Egypt.

Leviticus 23:42-43 You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All native Israelites shall dwell in booths that your generations may know that I made the people of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.”

Despite their faithless attitude, the holiday is a thanksgiving for the gracious provision and safety God showed Israel during their travels in the desert as noted in Deuteronomy 8. The appointment also marks the end of the harvest season.

sukkot rain palmFor future consideration, Tabernacles is the only God appointed feast gentiles will be required to attend. At some point in the future, the nations will be encouraged to pay their respects to the Lord and King Jesus Christ. If you don’t, there is a consequence.

Zechariah 14:16-19 Then everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Booths. And if any of the families of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, there will be no rain on them. And if the family of Egypt does not go up and present themselves, then on them there shall be no rain; there shall be the plague with which the LORD afflicts the nations that do not go up to keep the Feast of Booths. This shall be the punishment to Egypt and the punishment to all the nations that do not go up to keep the Feast of Booths.

Matthew 24:12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. -Jesus

Catalonia has overwhelmingly voted for their independence from Spain with over 90% in favor. The Spanish government declared the independence vote unconstitutional. This vote was accomplished in spite of the violence from Spanish law enforcement against the voters.
