President Biden’s Middle East Trip… Czekmate

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 17, 2022 by paulthepoke

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

Ezekiel’s Persia is modern day Iran…

The bottom line readout of the Biden trip to Israel points to the division in the administration on Near East policy. Two diverging paths thrown together into a foreign policy salad was pointed out to me in Hebrew. I waited a while to see if the Israelis and conservative American Jews could come to one mind on what the ‘upshot’ was. I needed an online translation but here it is, and it is brilliantly succinct:

“The problematic developments after Biden’s visit: The United States seeks to integrate the Palestinians into the forums of the Abraham Accords as well as Jordan. In addition, a number of Arab countries are on the way to normalization with Iran, including the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, and Egypt.”

Czekmate interpretation — the region is prepared to go it alone in such confusion out of America.

This is a few days old but was mostly underplayed in the press. That is likely owed to the Biden trip to Israel and the respect for the US from the government in Jerusalem. I will not speak to the veracity of the site, other than to say some Czekmate friends seem to think that the folks behind do have a pretty good grip on what they report on.

For the reach of the Israeli security services, what they lack in breadth they make up for in precision. In other words, they do not have massive amounts of agents to be able to put against a large problem in their far abroad. Accordingly, what resources they do have do exhaustive homework on the back end of their intelligence apparatus. From that homework they focus on very narrow efforts pointed at key nodes and critical paths of the problem set.

This is acutely the case in a culturally less accessible, place far from home such as Iran. The internal security conditions of a place like Iran makes it harder still. Thus the ability to place agents who blend in, leaves fewer personnel to be able to draw from. Frequently, assets recruited while abroad (regime traitors) alongside allied agents compose any operation personnel in such a place as Iran.

Making such operations harder still is that the secrecy surrounding a nuclear program is forbidding. Further, in order to gain the most amount of value per penetration/operation requires an agent to have a rare set of expertise usually gained over years of deep study. Hence the need to have a robust analytic structure in Israel itself that informs the operations to be undertaken. You can bet that individuals with such expertise and education would remain under a sharp eye in a paranoid regime like Iran.

Ah, but that paranoia is warranted in view of the number casualties the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp have been absorbing in recent months on their own soil. It has undermined the IRGC standing within the regime itself, and has doubtless exacerbated any acrimony between the Iranian armed forces and the IRGC. Such would have been the intent behind any effort were it a part of an intelligence operational effort.

In short, create such a blow to the key personalities of the Iranian power projecting security establishment (Missiles, drones and nukes) that disproportional resources have to be expended at home, thus slowing the entire maturation to a militarily viable nuclear weapon.

Up to this point, the Israeli emphasis has been to slow/stop that process, and it has been the central point of the nuclear negotiations bandied about on TV and in print so frequently. This cycle is so that in order to build a working “nuclear bomb” the radioactive material must be very highly refined and in large quantities to achieve a nuclear blast. This article lays down an indication that the Israelis are now compelled to reorient this apparatus away from attempting to disrupt the nuclear fuel generation cycle. They must now focus this apparatus to the next phase in an Iranian bomb, the capability of Iran to use one (as a viable weapon of war) as the new priority.

This is consistent with the news (reported here) surrounding recent deaths of Iranian personnel in their weapons research infrastructure. This is the new emphasis on their delicate and precise operations behind the enemy lines of the Iranian homeland. The so-called “Break-out” time (The time it takes to have enough nuclear material for a viable working bomb) being at zero, suggests that disrupting the nuclear enrichment cycle is an exhausted option for stymieing the Iranian bomb.

It is also a major step closer to a military strike.

The Watchmen: Biden & Temple Mount, New President for UAE, Food Security Expansion, Russia & Ukraine, Finland Applies to NATO, Energy & Rubles, China Active in Pacific

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

Genesis 12:3 And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.

In this episode of The Watchmen, President Biden reaches out to Jordanian King Abdullah and discussed Temple Mount Security. A reminder, never a good idea to divide God’s land or capital.

The United Arab Emirates has a new president. Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan was elected president by a federal supreme council. He replaces his half brother, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed.

Revelation 6:6 And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

Food security continues to play an increasing role in our world. India will no longer export wheat. India is the world’s second largest producer. Three (Russia, Ukraine, India) of the top 10 wheat producers in the world will no longer export wheat. This accounts for 40-50% of the planet’s grain trade. This is a very big deal!!!

Iranian citizens have taken to the streets to protest the exploding price of basic staples. Grains and cooking oils have gone up 300% over the last week. In response, the government cut off the internet briefly.

Diesel supply shortages are starting to be a concern on the east coast of the United States. All of these things point to higher food and fuel costs.

Ukraine’s President Zelensky has been invited to the Davos Economic Forum scheduled for later this week. Zelensky appears to have the support of the world’s economic elite. More weapons please…

Democrat House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer made the following admission this past week on the floor of the House of Representatives. “It is unfortunate that in a time of war, we spend all the time blaming our own president.” So we are fighting a proxy war with the Russians.

Finland announces its intent to join NATO. Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan is not so sure about this move and a states Finland and Sweden are hot beds of terrorism. Russia promptly cuts off electricity to Finland.

It would appear Europe is starting to understand Putin a little more clearly. European companies, not sovereign countries, are opening accounts with Gazprom Bank to pay for natural gas in rubles. Mind you, this does not violate any European sanctions against Russia. No conflict of interest, move along.

Revelation 9:16 The number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them.

The People’s Republic of China is on the move in the Pacific. A Chinese aircraft carrier was spotted off the coast of Taiwan and Japan. A reconnaissance vessel was also spotted off the west coast of Australia. Plus, the Chinese are making end roads in the Solomon Islands. Australia responds with strong language to the Chinese.

Israel swears in first Muslim to the Supreme Court of the nation.

Hamas leaders flew to Moscow for an emergency meeting. Russian President Putin pledges full support to the Palestinians after skirmishes with Israeli security on the Temple Mount.

Current Russian military resources in Syria are reviewed. There has been a troop draw down since the beginning of the Ukraine invasion. Ezekiel 38 says Russia, along with others, will cover Israel like a cloud.

The United States, G7, and possibly Europe increase economic sanctions on Russia.

Bulgaria is looking to Turkey for natural gas since Russia has turned off the flow. What will Russia of Turkey? Turkey continues to ride the slippery fence in international affairs.

Jared Kushner is investing Saudi money in Israeli start up companies. Kushner wants to make sure the Saudis and his friend Mohammed bin Salman don’t miss out on these business opportunities.

The Watchmen: Temple Mount Control & Jordan, Abraham Accords Trade, Erdogan Travels to Saudi Arabia, Rublezone, Putin’s Surgery, Iranian Reach & Propaganda

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 2, 2022 by paulthepoke

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

In this episode of The Watchmen we look at Jordan wanting full control of the Temple Mount complex. Are we watching Jordan respond to regional pressure with regards to security of the Muslim religious sites? How does this relate to Ezekiel 38-39? Flags are flying on the Temple Mount during Ramadan. Who do these flags represent?

The United Arab Emirates are flying heavy transport planes in and out of Israel. It appears defense contracts are being fulfilled between the Abraham Accord countries. The concern is an increasingly hostile Iran with nuclear intentions.

President Recep Erdogan of Turkey travelled to Saudi Arabia this week for the first time in five years. Erdogan stated, “I see and believe that it is in our joint interest to boost our cooperation with Saudi Arabia in such areas as healthcare, energy, food security, agricultural technologies, defense industry and finance. It seems that we have significant potential particularly in renewable and green energy. We will hopefully discuss and thoroughly evaluate these issues.”

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps allegedly tried to assassinate an Israeli diplomat in Turkey. Iran is reaching out via Hezbollah around the globe including the British Virgin Islands with drug deals.

Russia is cutting off the flow of natural gas to European countries of Poland and Bulgaria who refuse to pay in rubles. However, the Rublezone has manifested with Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary who are agreeable to pay for natural gas in rubles.

Allegedly, Russian President Vladimir Putin is scheduled for cancer surgery in the near future. Fellow KGB comrade Nikolai Patrushev is picked to assume authority while Putin is under treatment. Putin is suspected to be managing Parkinson’s Disease and symptoms related to the progressive neurological disorder. Check out video and professional analysis of Putin’s physical condition.

Teaser alert… Food processing plants are catching fire around the United States. 18 plants have been affected in the last 6 months. More on this topic to come in future episodes of the Watchmen.

Lastly, nothing like a little Iranian Propaganda gong wrong. In preparation for Jerusalem Day, things don’t go as planned. This section of the Watchmen was brought to you by Beavis and Butthead. Sorry, we could not help ourselves. Deep down, grown men have a teenage boy inside of them!

A gold coin with the depiction of Jesus as the “Good Shepherd” was found off the coast of Caesarea from ancient ship wreck. Hundreds of coins and artifacts were discovered as well.

Is Indonesia on the verge of joining the Abraham Accords???

Iran produces hype video demonstrating the destruction of the Israeli nuclear facility in Dimona. This was part of the Great Prophet 17 Iranian war games. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps executed the coordinated launches. Military exercises were completed at sea as well… Two days later, Israel allegedly fired missiles at Iranian targets in Latakia Port in Syria.

Natural gas and electricity prices in Europe are at all time highs. Russia has effectively turned off the gas to Europe. Russian President Putin feels back into a corner with no where to retreat. His posture and tone are changing. Winter is setting in and cold weather is here.

This Week in Prophecy: Aussie COVID Camps, Abraham Accord Military Ties, Russia, Plagues & Quakes

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…

Saudis To Join Abraham Accords???

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Peace Plan, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 20, 2021 by paulthepoke

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.

Scripture says “peace and security” covenants, deals, treaties (take your pick) are inevitable. These are signs of the end times scenario.

Things have been quiet on the “peace front” since Joe Biden has become President of the United States… until now.

Multiple reports are coming out of Israel and Arab news sources. The Biden Administration has reached out to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS). In September 2021, White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan went to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and discussed the idea with MBS. In October, Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud went to Washington to meet with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken. The pitch is for Saudi Arabia to join the Abraham Accords.

Other countries appear to be lining up to possibly join the Abraham Accords. These include: The island nation of Comoros, Tunisia, Oman, Qatar, and Malaysia.

https://www.al-monitor.com/originals/2021/10/biden-aide-saudi-crown-prince-discussed-israel-normalization-report

Keep in mind, Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka were in Jerusalem last week as the Abraham Accords caucus was initiated in the Israeli Knesset.

Foreign Minister Yair Lapid was at the event and made the following statement.

“We renewed relations with Egypt, we opened embassies, we improved our relations with the US. I call upon the Palestinians, and every Arab nation that is listening: We seek peace. Peace is not a compromise or a weakness but rather an embodiment of the human spirit. Those living in the Middle East are welcome to look around and see which countries are in a better position — those who seek peace, or those who seek war.”

Israeli Foreign Minister Lapid was in Washington at the same time as Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud…

This Week in Prophecy: Abraham Accords, China/Taiwan, Caucuses, Hyperinflation, Global Tax

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 14, 2021 by paulthepoke

This Week in Prophecy

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

Is Oman looking to join the Abraham Accords with Israel? Jared Kushner is back in the Middle East. The Biden Administration agrees with the idea of expanding peace in the Middle East.

China is looking to “peacefully” unify Taiwan with the motherland. Revelation 9 says there is ultimately nothing peaceful about their means and motives. What is the response from the west to China and their saber rattling?

Military tension continues to build in the Caucuses. Ezekiel 38 and 39 says this region will unite under leadership from modern day Russia. Politics makes strange bed fellows and the relationships in this region prove it. Strange days indeed with Christians, Atheists, and Shia uniting on one side and Sunnis plus Jews on the other.

Signs of hyperinflation are increasing across the globe. Utilities are increasing in price around the Middle East, western Europe, and China. The price of natural gas and electricity is soaring. Lebanon is out of diesel at times to run its electrical grid.

Will the US Treasury mint a $1 trillion coin to avert default? It’s legal!!! Another sign of the times that could lead to more inflation. Don’t worry, 1 to 3.5 trillion dollars worth of budget will be passed one way or another.

136 countries have agreed to a corporate global tax of 15% on large multinational companies. 90% of global gross domestic production is on board. They must pay their fair share!!! Just another sign of a one world economic system taking shape.

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.
