Exodus 30:13-16 This is what everyone who is numbered shall give: half a shekel according to the shekel of the sanctuary (the shekel is twenty gerahs), half a shekel as a contribution to the Lord. Everyone who is numbered, from twenty years old and over, shall give the contribution to the Lord. The rich shall not pay more and the poor shall not pay less than the half shekel, when you give the contribution to the Lord to make atonement for yourselves. You shall take the atonement money from the sons of Israel and shall give it for the service of the tent of meeting, that it may be a memorial for the sons of Israel before the Lord, to make atonement for yourselves.”

December, 2022, Jerusalem, Ophel Excavations: A half shekel coin from 66 -70 AD has been found.

Ezekiel 38:10-12 “Thus says the Lord GOD: On that day, thoughts will come into your mind, and you will devise an evil scheme and say, ‘I will go up against the land of unwalled villages. I will fall upon the quiet people who dwell securely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having no bars or gates,’ to seize spoil and carry off plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places that are now inhabited, and the people who were gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell at the center of the earth.

Will Israel expand its drilling program in the Mediterranean Sea? Europe is starving for a new source of natural gas. Israel continues to search for more energy resources in the Mediterranean. The Knesset Research Center believes Israel could provide 900 billion cubic meters of gas per year.

Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

This is the first commandment given to humanity. Have sex and produce children, lots of ’em! Three times!

  1. Be fruitful
  2. Multiply
  3. Fill the earth

460,000,000/8,000,000,000 = 0.0575

The World Economic Forum is recommending approximately a 95% reduction of the population. This is not a conspiracy theory. These are public statements and open forums. Listen to their words. This recommendation is not in line with God’s mandate to Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. This agenda is evil.

Luke 21:11b …and in various places famines and pestilences. -Jesus

Dr. Eric Ding is sounding the alarm. A new COVID variant is emerging, XBB 1.5 or #XBB15 on Twitter. Dr. Ding is an epidemiologist & health economist. He spent 16 years at Harvard.

The following is from Wikipedia.

Eric Liang Feigl-Ding (born March 28, 1983) is an American public health scientist who is currently an epidemiologist and Chief of COVID Task Force at the New England Complex Systems Institute. He was formerly a faculty member and researcher at Harvard Medical School and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. He is also the Chief Health Economist for Microclinic International, and co-founder of the World Health Network.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Feigl-Ding

Dr. Ding is calling out the CDC for being asleep at the wheel with the latest COVID variant.

Separate from what is emerging in the United States and England, China is getting hammered by a significant COVID outbreak. Experts estimate up to 9,000 deaths per day with infections up to an estimated 18,600,000 people.

Airfinity is a United Kingdom health data firm.

Airfinity expects China’s Covid infections to reach their first peak on 13 January with 3.7m cases a day. Airfinity expects deaths to peak on 23 January with about 25,000 a day, with cumulative deaths reaching 584,000 since December.

This Week in Prophecy: Abraham Accords, Global Inflation, Aussie Social Credit, Saudis & China, Euthanasia, Respect for Marriage

Psalm 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May they be secure who love you!

Dateline Rome, Italy: The Abraham Accords Global Leadership Summit was completed from December 7 – 9, 2022. The conference was introduced on the first day. The focus of the conference was to fight discrimination and build economic peace through strengthened political ties. The second session was called “Combating Hate: Creative Strategies”. The third session was titled “Economic Peace”. To close, 30 countries signed off on the summit with an agreement to a “family values pledge.”

Conjecture on the part of the author. I suspect any future covenant signed with focus in and around the 7 Noahide Laws. Time will tell…

https://www.i24news.tv/en/news/international/1670513171-abraham-accords-summit-focuses-on-combating-hate-building-economic-peace

A recent poll conducted by the Pew Research Center indicated approximately 2 in 5 Americans believe “we are living in the end times“. Evangelicals and Black Protestants were the most likely to believe in the imminent concept.

Eschatology experts also weighed in and explained how this era we are living is not the end of the world.

However, The Official Expert has told us to be ready. Just sayin’…

Revelation 6:6 “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

Global inflation continues to take its toll. Below is a chart looking at rising prices around the planet.

Ancient Sheba and Dedan Meet With Revelation 9

Riyadh: Chinese President Xi Jinping recently travelled to Saudi Arabia to meet with Mohammed bin Salman.

$30,000,000,000 (30 billion) worth of deals were signed.

The 34 deals struck between Chinese and Saudi firms are in green energy, information technology, cloud services, transport, construction and other sectors.

Multiple other Middle East leaders made the trip to Riyadh to meet with Xi Jinping. These include: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, Sudanese de facto head of state Abdul Fattah al-Burhan, Tunisian President Kais Saied, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed al-Sudani, Moroccan Prime Minister Aziz Akhannouch, and Lebanese caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati.

“China and Arab states will continue to hold high the banner of non-interference in internal affairs, firmly support each other in safeguarding sovereignty,” Xi Jinping.

John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of mankind. And the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not grasp it.

Genesis 2:24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

By the way, Jesus quotes this passage from Genesis in the Gospel accounts.

gamos/γάμος: a wedding or marriage, to bind or unite.

In the Bible, the context is between a man and a woman.

Sorry, I am not going to spend time on the cultural definition of marriage. They can speak for themselves.

The Good Lord will have a response.

This Week in Prophecy: Russia & Ukraine, Iran & Turkey, Mauna Loa, Dutch Farmers, Digital Currencies, China

On This Week in Prophecy… We have an operational update on the happenings in Ukraine. Russia is struggling to make gains. Ukraine continues to push the Russians out of their country. Russia has devastated utility services within Ukraine. Missile strikes have rendered the majority of the country without electricity. Basic provisions such as heat and water are being hit hard. Winter is beginning to set in…

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11466255/Satellite-image-shows-Ukraine-total-darkness-latest-round-Russian-missile-strikes.html

Ezekiel 38:3-6 and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. 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. Persia, Cush, and Put are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

Turkey and Iran have discovered something they both have in common. They both have declared war on “terrorists” as they see it, the Kurds.

Turkey wants to be an energy hub partnering with Moscow, and Iran is selling drones to Moscow. Economics ties Turkey and Iran to Moscow. In this respect, they have a common policy, but not necessarily a policy that is solely anti-Kurdish. The end result is that Kurds are victims and pay the price for the Ankara-Tehran partnership.

Nahum 1:5 Mountains quake because of Him and the hills dissolve; indeed the earth is upheaved by His presence, the world and all the inhabitants in it.

Psalm 97:5 The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth.

Micah 1:4 And the mountains will melt under him, and the valleys will split open, like wax before the fire, like waters poured down a steep place.

Isaiah 24:1 Behold, the LORD lays the earth waste, devastates it, distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants.

After a 38 year snooze, the world’s largest active volcano, Mauna Loa, has come to life in Hawaii. Fear not, the experts state there is nothing to worry about…

Area: 2,035 mi². Mauna Loa is 13,680 feet above sea level and more than 56,000 feet from its peak to its underwater base, according to USGS. Its volume is estimated to be some 18,000 cubic miles. -Google

Some locals have indicated they are watching a sacred, religious event. Altars have been constructed and sacrifices are being made near Mauna Loa.

Revelation 6:6 And I heard what sounded like a voice from among 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.”

The Dutch government is looking to purchase 3,000 farms and industrial polluters. Farmers are in the crosshairs for environmental violations. The crime, ammonia and nitrogen oxide emissions exceed EU law.

“For agricultural entrepreneurs, there will be a stopping scheme that will be as attractive as possible. For industrial peak polluters, we will get to work with a tailor-made approach and in tightening permits. After a year, we will see if this has achieved enough.” -Christianne van der Wal, Nitrogen Minister

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2022/nov/30/peak-polluters-last-chance-close-dutch-government

So why is this a big deal? Netherlands is the second largest food exporter in the world behind the United States. Agriculture is over a 100 billion Euro business.

A friendly reminder, the composition of our atmosphere and the air we breathe is roughly 79% Nitrogen.

Momentum continues to build for a trackable one world currency. Add Brazil and India to the growing list of nations embracing digital currencies.

United Kingdom Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has changed his mind. Previously in August of 2022, Sunak indicated he sees Jerusalem as “Israel’s historic capital” in front of a Conservative Friends of Israel event.

Sunak had also publicly stated, “To me, it’s indisputably the historic capital… it seems to me that there is a very strong case to it, to recognize what is a historic and practical step. It would be something where we’d be acting in concert with our allies in the region and, in general, one of our closest allies, so it’s something I’d like to do.”

But now, “there are no current plans to change the location of our embassy.”

Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi met Russian Sergei Lavrov in Amman, Jordan on November 3, 2022.

“The truth is Russian presence in Syria has been a stabilizing factor in the south because the vacuum would be filled by militias and other groups that will not be able to ensure stability in those places,” Jordan Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi.

Syria makes over 10 billion dollars from an amphetamine-like drug. Jordan has also had hundreds of thousand of refugees from Syria as a result of the civil war.

Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

Hell is not real. Satan comes from a place the cool kids like, the “metaphysical realm”.

The you heroine antichrist goes to a woke school. “We’re not racist anymore!”

Armenia is a predominantly Christian nation. As of 2011, 97% of the country identified as Christian and members of the Armenian Apostolic Church (Wikipedia).

The conflict has nations quickly aligning with one of the two nations.

Russia has cut off the flow of natural gas to Europe. Nord Stream 1 has been shut down indefinitely.

“Europe’s storages are well on track to hitting or even surpassing their targets for this summer, and there’s plenty of scope to replace that gas with liquified natural gas imports for now, but when weather turns cold and demand starts to pick up in the winter in Europe and Asia, there’s only so much LNG out there that Europe can import to replace Russian gas.”
