Ezekiel 38:1-3 The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him 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 brothers of Magog (Meshech, Gomer, and Tubal) appear to point to modern day Turkey.

Modern day, 21st century Russians refer to themselves as the ancient Scythians or Magogians. See the link below.

No Presidential Decree from Turkey’s de facto ruler will stop the Lira’s decline against the US Dollar.

Nations are no different than Families; each has a credit line. Using credit to enjoy today is always at the expense of tomorrow; maybe at the expense of a lot of tomorrows.

The US Dollar is cycling higher as uncertainty in Financial Markets starts to spread; just Capital looking for Safety! The easy credit and absurdly low interest rates of the last decade have encouraged gorging on Debt across the Villages, Hamlets, Towns, Cities, and Nations of the World. The Joy of Financed Prosperity is ending and the Day of Judgment is coming as the servicing of the Debt now is impeding Prosperity and the Creditors are looking for re-payment. Emerging Markets rely heavily on Debt to finance schools, airports, roads, water sanitation and all of the infrastructure already in place in modern countries. Further, Emerging Markets rely heavily on Foreign Investments for Capital to build retail, restaurants and housing. When local currencies start to decline against the benchmarks such as the US Dollar, these pools of Capital start to leave causing a liquidity problem for local governments and eventually a loss in confidence which can quickly and adversely affect exchange rates. Capital in Argentina, Brazil, India, Greece, Macedonia, Poland and of course Turkey is fleeing to the Safety of the US Dollar and their currency’s purchasing power is declining. Once started, it is very difficult to stop: even Presidential decrees do not work.

Nations are no different than Families; each has a credit line. Using credit to enjoy today is always at the expense of tomorrow; maybe at the expense of a lot of tomorrows. Eventually the credit line is completely spent; maybe an extension or two will postpone the inevitable. However, just as Families, nations can only service so much Debt and then something has to change. Families can declare Bankruptcy or allow a Foreclosure. Nations DEFAULT!!

Before a Nation Defaults, plans must be made for the continuation of the Government and essential services. This is done by securing funding from other sources; sources that previously would not even be considered; desperation changes things! Turkey is running out of Credit! Turkey will not accept constraints imposed by the IMF or creditor Banks and has received an emergency $15 Billion from Qatar.  The Debt must be addressed while the Turkish economy and currency is quickly declining creating a very difficult situation.  Overtures to Russia and China for funding will be a game changer. If the future funding requirements can be obtained, Turkey will be able to default on it’s Debt; geopolitics are also economic realities. Capital is fleeing now, time is short.

Prepare for Turmoil, but also prepare for opportunity! Defaults in Emerging Markets would impact Stocks and Bonds across the Globe.  Reduce or eliminate debt, create personal reserves, stockpile needed medicine, store extra food and water, and keep personal cash handy. The Financial Asset Cycle is ending and Real Assets will rise. Natural Resources, Agriculture, Mining and Minerals, Lumber, Copper, Oil, Aluminum, and most if not all of the basic materials should rise as currencies decline. Things should be accumulate; very conservative Real Estate such as rental houses should do well. It is time to prepare, time to change,  time to prepare for the next opportunity.

 

Currently, American economic sanctions and a strong US dollar are crippling the currencies of Russia, Turkey, and Iran. All of these countries are feeling an economic, monetary squeeze. Ultimately, the reason for the invasion of Israel from the north appears to be economic. Israel is a prosperous country.

Ezekiel 38:13 Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all its leaders will say to you, ‘Have you come to seize spoil? Have you assembled your hosts to carry off plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to seize great spoil?’

Is now this time? It is looking like it more and more with each passing day. But, that remains to be seen. Will Turkey Align with Russia? God’s prophet Ezekiel says emphatically “Yes”!

Warning: China Economic Data

Posted in Michael Douville, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2018 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 49:12 Look, they come from far away! Look, some come from the north and west, and others from the land of Sinim!

Genesis 10:16-18 the Jebusites, Amorites, Girgashites, Hivites, Arkites, Sinites, Arvadites, Zemarites, and Hamathites. Eventually the families of the Canaanites were scattered.

The following is from the Genesis Record, Henry Morris.

The Biblical mention of a people in the Far East named “Sinim” (Isaiah 49:12), together with references in ancient secular histories to people in the Far East called “Sinae,” at least suggests the possibility that some of Sin’s descendants migrated eastward, while others went south into the land of Canaan. It is significant that the Chinese people have always been identified by the prefix “Sino-” (e.g., Sino-Japanese War; Sinology, the study of Chinese history). The name “Sin” is frequently encountered in Chinese names in the form “Siang” or its equivalent.

The evidence is tenuous but, of all the names in the Table of Nations, it does seem that two sons of Canaan, Heth (Hittites = Khittae = Cathay) and Sin (Sinites = Sinim = China), are the most likely to have become ancestors of the Oriental peoples. Since it seems reasonable that divine inspiration would include in such a table information concerning the ancestry of all the major streams of human development, it is reasonable to conclude that the Mongoloid peoples (and therefore also the American Indians) have come mostly from the Hamitic line.

 

Another warning that the Economy may not be as strong as we think. Data on China, as well as Europe is not good.

Global Conglomerates Falling!…Featuring Michael Douville

Posted in Michael Douville with tags , , , , , on February 13, 2018 by paulthepoke

Romans 13:8 Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.

Michael

HNA Group of Hainan, China was founded in 2000. Flexing the new found strength of the Chinese Economy, the Company embarked on a multi-year buying spree using highly leveraged Corporate Bond programs to acquire Premium Worldwide companies. HNA has taken huge positions in Hilton Worldwide with reports that it’s ownership has risen to 25%, a 10% stake in Deutche Bank, the largest Bank in Germany and a Global Institution, and Prime Commercial Real Estate in Manhattan, San Francisco, Chicago, and Minneapolis with billions of Financed Dollars!  Reports are now surfacing that HNA is unable to service the debt and Liquidation of assets is starting.

Global Debt has risen far beyond the then record debt of the Great Financial Crisis. Conglomerates, States, Municipalities, and Sovereign Nations have GORGED on cheap rates and tricky financing. These Borrowers are no different than any Household; eventually Debt OVERWHELMS and a period of adjustment ensues. The adjustment usually consists of defaults on loans and bonds causing financial stress to not only the Borrower, but also the Lender that has obligations that must be met from the intended loan servicing. Insurance Companies with Annuity Policies, Health Policies, and Life Insurance Policies as well as Pension Funds with monthly obligations to Retirees will be placed at Risk. Banks and financial institutions may be at risk. Often these Institutions develop a lending relationship and assume too much risk by being the Prime Lender; huge transaction profits initially, then disaster eventually!

Should a Global Slowdown appear and there are indications that one has started, other Highly Leveraged formerly Global Conglomerate Darlings will Fall. The Globe is very intertwined; when Hanjin Shipping of South Korea went Bankrupt, Landesbank in Germany was affected with huge Hanjin debt. Steinhoff of South Africa is in trouble and US Banks are a risk of losing $1 Billion Dollars in loans. Other Chinese firms that have been buying, and buying, and buying are also in trouble. Dalian Wanda, Sunac, Le Eco with massive debt have been mentioned as struggling. Everything is fine until it is not! Leverage allows for enormous profits when all is good, but make a miscalculation, a marketing mistake, or associate with the wrong counter party and Debt will be RELENTLESS. Already, Economic Powerhouse South Korea has reported that the 4th Quarter of 2017 printed not a growth slowdown, but an actual Contraction!

Currently, the Mantra has been “Coordinated Global Growth”! If one looks “Under the Hood”, there are cracks beginning to form. Your FUTURE is at Stake! Check you finances, your debts, your assets, your Insurance and Annuity Policies, and your Pension Provider. There is still time to develop “Plan B”. However, Time may be Running Out!

Trend Update: Iran Instead of ISIS, August 2017

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 13, 2017 by paulthepoke

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

August 13, 2017: Recent history is repeating itself again. When one set of terrorists is eliminated, another set of issues will take its place. ISIS is gradually being removed from the current Middle East scenario.

The head of Israel’s Intelligence Agency, Mossad, indicated Iran is taking the territories vacated by ISIS. Mossad is lead by Yossi Cohen. Iran is expanding by proxy in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Yemen. Shia Muslims are replacing Sunni Muslims.

Israel along with President Trump has expressed concern regarding Iranian compliance of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). The JCPOA is the nuclear deal President Obama signed with the Iranians. Iran maintains their nuclear program is for peaceful purposes. Iran also states they are not developing ballistic missiles that carry nuclear weapons.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel has made it clear. Israel does not follow other international agreements when it comes to the security of the nation.

“Israel will continue to work with determination and in a variety of ways to protect itself from these threats,” stated Netanyahu.

Prime Minister Netanyahu is looking to go to war without approval of the full cabinet. The law comes up for vote before the Knesset in October. The Prime Minister is not confirming or denying the possibility.

Annual Army Day Military ParadeFor its part, Iranian legislators recently passed a spending bill to increase funding to the nation’s missile program. Some lawmakers chanted “Death to America” with the passing of the program. $260 million was committed to the missile program and the Quds Force. The Quds Force is a military unit deployed in Syria and Iraq.

Revelation 16:12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east.

Significant oil finds are occurring in the Golan Heights of Israel “with the potential of billions of barrels”. The world sees this territory as occupied Syria. If that is not intriguing enough, another significant find is reported to be in valley of Meggido-Jezreel. This is also known as…

Revelation 16:16 And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

There are massive natural gas reserves off the coast of Israel in the Mediterranean Sea. They are the Leviathan and Tamar fields.

china unChinese peacekeeping troops are more acceptable to Israel because they are not Arab. Israel has been agreeable to Chinese troops to Lebanon in the past. Israel sees Asians as more impartial.

China is looking to join the United Nations peace keeping forces in the Golan Heights. The peacekeeping branch of the UN is called the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF).

The United States is withdrawing from the Middle East. End time’s players are filling the vacuum.

Trend Update: China, Another Blood Red River, July 2014

Posted in Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death, Prophecy with tags , , , , on July 25, 2014 by paulthepoke

Revelation 16:4 Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of waters; and they became blood.

Granted, this verse is late in the order of the seven year Tribulation. The scope and scale is all of the rivers and springs. This event in China is not the fulfillment of Revelation16:4. Let’s just get that out of the way.

The Greek word for blood is haima. It literally means blood or figuratively it means the color of blood. This definition is validated in multiple Greek lexicons.

A previous incident was noted in September of 2012 with China and a red river. Australia had an algae bloom which resulted in red tides on an ocean front beach in late November of 2012. This incident popped up over night in July of 2014. See the patch from ABC’s Good Morning America for the details.

The Bible says this will happen on a much larger scale at some point in the future. Just a little preview…

 

Trend Update: Blood Red River, Come On! November 2012

Revelation 16:4 Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of waters; and they became blood.

Granted, this verse is late in the order of the seven year Tribulation. The scope and scale is all of the rivers and springs. This event in China is not the fulfillment of Revelation16:4. Let’s just get that out of the way.

The Greek word for blood is haima. It literally means blood or figuratively it means the color of blood. This definition is validated in multiple Greek lexicons.

To the critic and skeptic, one must at least acknowledge a body of water turning red is possible. Eventually there will be an explanation as to why this happened. I am sure there is a “scientific” reason for the occurrence. The reason and explanation will not change the fact this event happened. It will not change the fact that parts of one of the largest rivers in China turned red. The critic cannot explain it away. I have no doubt they will try.

Why will this event happen? It is a judgment. Revelation 16:6 …for they poured out the blood of saints and prophets, and You have given them blood to drink. They deserve it.” There will be those who will kill Christians during this future period. There are people killing Christians now because they believe in Jesus. God will give you what you want.

The Bible says this will happen on a much larger scale at some point in the future. Just a little preview…

A mother and her child look out over the 'Red Sea' of Sydney's Clovelly beach. Despite health warnings a number of defiant swimmers were seen venturing into the water  This is from Australia’s Bondi Beach Resort on 11/27/12. The event was caused by an algae bloom.
