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.

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)

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)

Free Speech Alert!!! FYI, YouTube has been editing and removing commentary from the PaulthePoke channel. Commentary did not meet “Community Standards” as they see it.

For the record, I have no issue with people telling me to shut up or being called a moron, idiot, or whatever. It is free speech… it does not mean you have to agree with it.

Censoring ideas is a scary place. Encouraging everyone to value and protect your freedom of speech while we still can.

This Week in Prophecy

https://valortube.com/

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Russian President Vladimir Putin met for the first time this past week in Sochi, Russia. Bennett had such a good time, he stayed over on the Sabbath. Putin indicated he is for “peace, security, and stability in the Middle East.” Putin appears to be on a collision course with Ezekiel 38-39 and 1 Thessalonians 5:3.

Israel and Egypt are in talks to expand natural gas production and distribution to Europe. Time line for the project appears to be a couple of years away. The back drop is the continued inflation of natural gas prices across Europe. Prices have exploded 5 to 6 times over the past year. Supply has been cut by the Russians. Prices look to be going even higher with winter around the corner.

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz is leaving on a four day trip. But Israel is not telling the destination. Speculation is running high. I smell discussions regarding the Abraham Accords. More “peace and security”…

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.

The United States has shown Russia and China. They have hypersonic missiles too. The world continues to become a more dangerous place with the advancement of weapons technologies.

Volcanic activity continues to increase around the planet. In addition to more seismic activity and more lava flow in La Palma in the Canary Islands, one of the world’s largest volcanos rumbled to life in Japan, Mount Aso.

This and more on This Week in Prophecy.

Jared Kushner Creates… “Abraham Accords Institute for Peace”

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on May 5, 2021 by paulthepoke
Wikipedia

May 5, 2021: Breaking News… Former Advisor to President Trump, Jared Kushner has created the “Abraham Accords Institute for Peace”. The focus of the Institute is to improve and deepen relationships between Israel and the participants of the “Circle of Peace”, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco.

Kushner has enlisted the talents of former US envoy Avi Berkowitz and ambassadors to the United States from Bahrain, the UAE and Israel.

Also joining Kushner will be Israeli-American businessman Haim Saban. Mr. Saban is a supporter of the Democrat Party.

The Abraham Accords Institute for Peace is of course non partisan. The Institute’s stated goal is to, “intend to add additional Democrats to the group as well as international advisers from the region.”

https://www.jpost.com/arab-israeli-conflict/kushner-launches-group-to-promote-arab-states-new-ties-with-israel-667264

Let me be clear. I am not saying Jared Kushner is the antichrist. Frankly, we need more “peace deals” with Israel. Then we need a man “to confirm the covenant with many” (Daniel 9). I am saying the rapture and the tribulation are going to occur. I am saying we should pay attention! We should be ready for the return of our Lord, Jesus Christ! He is coming…

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.

Happy Thanksgiving!!! 2020 Style

Posted in #PaulthePoke with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 25, 2020 by paulthepoke

1 Thessalonians 5:18 Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

COVID 19 and the year 2020 are included in all circumstances. So Give Thanks!!!

Thanksgiving is a uniquely American holiday. This will be a Thanksgiving unlike any other.

For the record, I am a medical professional of 27 years. I have treated COVID-19 patients. I utilize CDC precautions every day providing care to fellow citizens.

Politicians and medical professionals are calling on citizens to use precautions during this holiday and every day.

Some politicians are even willing to arrest and fine citizens who disobey their edicts! They want the police to drive through neighborhoods and ticket families and groups of people who do not comply.

Eat outside, no more than 4 people, no singing, no more than 2 hours, social distance, wear a mask, and on and on and on…

However, the state of California is going to allow people to go to the bathroom during Thanksgiving with conditions.

“Gatherings that occur outdoors are significantly safer than indoor gatherings. All gatherings must be held outside. Attendees may go inside to use restrooms as long as the restrooms are frequently sanitized.” California Governor Gavin Newsom and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH)

This is a permission slip to hold Thanksgiving with family and friends. It is called the U.S. Constitution.

Below is a link to the U.S. Constitution. Encourage children to read it. Lord knows they are not being taught this in their education.

https://www.heritage.org/constitution

I would also encourage everyone to read the Bill of Rights. Pay special attention to the First Amendment.

Amendment I
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Respect the thoughts and opinions of others. This Thanksgiving is an opportunity for balance and common sense to prevail. It does not have to be one way or the other, polar extremes.

We are still a free country. And with freedom comes responsibility. Freedom does not mean we are free from the consequences of our choices.

Ephesians 5:20 …giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ…

Gabriel: Character of the Antichrist, Part 2

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Angels, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 26, 2020 by paulthepoke

Daniel 8:25b…and he will magnify himself in his heart, and he will destroy many while they are at ease. He will even oppose the Prince of princes, but he will be broken without human agency”.

The angel Gabriel completes his communication to the prophet Daniel. Gabriel finishes his description of the character of the antichrist.

…and he will magnify himself in his heart… His ego will be out of control. Pride will be on display. Confidence will not be lacking and he will be capable of great things, just ask him. He also takes after his leader Satan. God reminds Satan of his attitude and thoughts in Isaiah.

Isaiah 14:13-14 “But you said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit on the mount of assembly in the recesses of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’”

~

…and he will destroy many while they are at ease. People will be at quietness and prosperity. Then he will strike. This is consistent with Scripture in the New Testament as written by the Apostle Paul.

1 Thessalonians 5:3 While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape.

~

He will even oppose the Prince of princes… Now this is a bad career move. It is never a good idea to oppose Jesus Himself. But, this is the kind of ego he possesses. The antichrist will take his stand and present himself against Christ.

..but he will be broken without human agency”. The Hebrew says the antichrist will be shabar or broken. Shabar is defined as: to be broken, be maimed, be crippled, be wrecked, or be crushed (figuratively). The phrase without human agency is an interesting one. It literally means “with nothingness of hand” in the Hebrew. He will be get what he deserves but not at the hand of a human being, which includes Jesus. Per the passages above, the antichrist is not sentenced to death by the Prince of princes.

This seems a bit confusing on the surface, until…

Revelation 19:20. And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone.

No death for you…but, an eternal living hell.

~

Daniel 8:26 The vision of the evenings and the mornings that has been told is true, but seal up the vision, for it refers to many days from now.”

Gabriel is confirming that Daniel’s vision is legitimately from God. The vision of the evenings and the mornings is in reference to Daniel 8:14.

Daniel 8:14 And he said to me, “For 2,300 evenings and mornings. Then the sanctuary shall be restored to its rightful state.”

This vision is “true” or emeth in the Hebrew. It is faithful and firm, Amen!

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.

The slogan, “Peace and Security in the Middle East”.

The talking points and sound bites coming from the conference mirror the comments of the Apostle Paul in 1 Thessalonians 5.

President Trump adviser Jared Kushner spoke at the event in Warsaw.

Kushner stated, “We will present the U.S. Israeli-Palestinian peace plan after the April 9th elections in Israel – both sides will have to make compromises.”

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was in attendance. He made the following comments.

“You can’t achieve stability in the Middle East without confronting Iran. It’s just not possible. There are malign influences in Lebanon, Yemen, Syria and Iraq. The three H’s- the Houthis, Hamas and Hezbollah. These are real threats.” -US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo

Russia boycotted the event in Warsaw and held its own peace conference in Sochi, Russia. President Putin hosted their allies of Turkey and Iran…

“There is peace and security…”

Currently, there is no peace and no security. Politicians are talking about achieving peace and security. Eventually they will declare, peace and security.

The headlines do make one wonder. How close are we to the remainder of the verse?

…then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

Middle East Peace: “The Deal of the Century”

Posted in Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on February 12, 2019 by paulthepoke

President Donald Trump has completed his plan for peace between the Palestinians and Israel. It has been dubbed “The Deal of the Century”. The plan is reported to be 175-200 pages. Less than five people are reported to have read the plan.

President Trump has asked his son-in-law Jared Kushner to be the point man for the peace plan. Kushner is expected to go to Poland and the Middle East to discuss the plan later in February 2019.

Kushner is expected to stop in Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.

Kevin Lemarque/Reuters

Kushner will be accompanied by Middle East Envoy Jason Greenblatt, the State Department’s Special Representative to Iran Brian Hook, and Deputy Assistant to the President Avi Berkowitz.

The focus of the trip is the economic portion of the peace plan. The plan is expected to offer employment prospects in the public and private sectors of the Palestinian economy.

“Jared is going to present the economic plan to the region. The economic plan only works if the region supports it. We understand that if the political aspect of it is not solid, the economic aspect is meaningless. But at the same time the political aspect will not succeed without a proper economic plan.” -Senior White House Official.

President Trump is not expected to release the complete details of the plan to the public until Israeli elections are completed on April 9, 2019.

Israel Ministry Foreign Affairs

Granted, there is no third Jewish Temple, no two witnesses, and there is not a 10 nation leadership structure in place. That said, this all has to start with talks of peace.

Be ready. Be aware. Be vigilant…

1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 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.

Jesus is knocking at the door…

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

1 Thessalonians 5:18 Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
