China and India Clash in Kashmir, June 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , on June 16, 2020 by paulthepoke

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.

Granted, the context of the kings from the east is the bowl judgments. This is the latter third of the Tribulation in the book of Revelation. The events taking place on the Chinese/Indian border are not the fulfillment of prophecy. Seals have yet to be broken.

June 16, 2020: China and India are literally fighting deadly combat hand to hand. The incident is taking place in the Himalayas in the Galwan Valley. Reports indicate guns have not been fired and soldiers are engaging with rocks and batons. India claims to have lost 20 soldiers. China states they have 43 injured and/or dead.

These are the two largest militaries in the world. According to Google, India has a population of 1.353 billion people. China has a population of 1.393 billion people. These two countries account for almost 40% of the Earth’s population.

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.

Wuhan Coronavirus Spreading Across Asia, January 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Pestilence with tags , , , on March 19, 2020 by paulthepoke

We are effectively two months removed from COVID 19 being announced to the world stage. On January 22, 2020, China quarantined Wuhan, a city of 11 million people when 540 people were infected.

Two months later, do we believe Chinese data? Two months from now, will we believe Chinese data? Do you think the Italians and Spaniards believe the Chinese data?

Let’s revisit how we were introduced to COVID 19 back in January 2020.

Paul the Poke

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

January 22, 2020: The Chinese government has quarantined the entire city of Wuhan, China. Wuhan is a city of 11,000,000 people located about 400 miles west of Shanghai. According to Chinese health officials, 540 people have become infected and 17 have died.

This does make one wonder. Why quarantine an entire city of 11 million if only 540 have been infected? The military and law enforcement logistics required to block off a city of this size is a significant civil undertaking. This would be the equivalent of closing off New York City. What are Chinese officials not telling the rest of the world?

Wuhan Virus Update, March 3, 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Persia/Elam/Iran, Pestilence, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 3, 2020 by paulthepoke

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

Exodus 20:3 You shall have no other gods before me. -The Lord God, Yahweh

March 3, 2020: The global count of infected persons has reached over 90,000 and continues to climb. Over 3,100 have died. Cases are exploding across South Korea, Iran, and Italy. 58 countries and counting have been impacted by the pestilence. The total in the United States has now reached 90 infected.

Iran: The government and its officials of the Islamic Republic are taking a serious hit with the coronavirus. A couple of members have died and countless others have become infected. Allegedly, over 1,500 people are infected in the country.

Those numbers are in question based on the behavior being exhibited in the religious city of Qom. Travel has not been restricted to the religious sites in the city. We have this bold example of commitment on display from the Shia branch of the Religion of Peace. And we wonder why the disease is spreading like gang busters throughout the country.

Matthew 24:5 For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray.

South Korea: The latest numbers out of Seoul report over 4,800 infected. The center of attention is the leader of a religious cult. The man in the eye of the storm is Lee Man-hee, the leader of the Shincheonji Church of Jesus. Mr. Lee seems to think he is the second coming of Jesus Christ. He states he is “the promised pastor” and he is taking 144,000 people to heaven with him. Lee believes he is the fulfillment of Revelation. Unfortunately, Mr. Lee has recently been diagnosed with the Coronavirus.

The World Health Organization (WHO) continues with the idea the Coronavirus is not a pandemic at this time. Today we were lectured by the leader of the WHO, Dr. Tedros, on terms, labels, and political correctness in regards to the virus. For those of you who would like to use the proper terminology as to not offend any one, please go to the Twitter stream below https://twitter.com/WHO.

The economic impact of the virus continues to grow. Michael Douville provides his latest thoughts on the Wuhan Virus. Supply chains are being impacted on a global scale. Michael discusses the business cycle and how the role of the virus is interacting with the business cycle. Dr. Charles Nenner has also provided his latest charts with impact on the housing industry as well. Nenner is calling for a double dip correction in the housing market. Both Douville and Dr. Nenner are calling for interest rates to continue to fall. Make your plans now. Get your house in order. Things are going to slow down.

 

Daniel 12:4 But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.

We are definitely living in a time of people running to and fro. Humanity is able to quickly travel from continent to continent. We are watching firsthand how infection can rapidly spread around the globe.

Here is the latest statistical data from around the globe.

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

February 24, 2020: The Wuhan Virus has left main land China and is spreading internationally. The number of infected has seen a significant jump in South Korea, Italy, and Iran. Here is an overview from global headlines around the world from the internet.

wuhan iran

South Korea: The number of cases is now approaching 900 with 8 deaths. The government has placed the city of Daegu and its 2.5 million people on lock down. Samsung has closed operations in Gumi at a phone manufacturing facility where an employee has been infected.

~

Italy: The concern is the virus will spread into Europe. Austria has blocked traffic coming from Italy at the border. 11 towns east of Milan in northern Italy have quarantined. The towns have roughly 50,000 residents. Across the country, Italians are emptying grocery stores for supplies. Food shortages are being reported in northern Italy. Schools and museums have been closed. Airport screenings are now taking place. Milan Fashion Week has been severely impacted. As of the post, Italy reports 231 infected with 7 deaths.

https://www.rt.com/news/481542-milan-zombie-apocalypse-coronavirus/

~

Iran: There appears to be some conflicting information coming out of Shia leadership in Tehran. For the record, Iran is reporting 61 cases with 12 deaths. However, an Iranian legislator is stating there are 50 deaths in Qom. Of note, Qom is the home of Shia religious sites and Qom is also home to a nuclear facility.

Other foreign countries are not taking any chances. Turkey, Armenia, Afghanistan, and Iraq have closed their borders with Iran.

Complicating the situation, the Corona Virus is making its way into the Middle East.

The World Health Organization (WHO) remains stead fast in not calling the current situation a pandemic.

The stock markets around the globe are starting to react to the financial impact of the Wuhan Virus. The Dow Jones Industrial was down over 1,000 points at times today. Interest rates reached all time lows in the United States. 10 year Treasury notes closed at 1.396%. 30 year Treasury notes closed at 1.857%. Oil has fallen to $50 per barrel. Global supply chains are being impacted due to a lack of economic activity. Economic activity is zero in parts of the far east.

Wuhan Virus Update, February 15, 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Pestilence, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , on February 15, 2020 by paulthepoke

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

February 15, 2020: China continues to try and manage the spread of the Wuhan Corona virus.

China food Getty

Food supplies are starting to become an issue. Grocery stores are running out of food. The government is shipping truck loads of food into Wuhan and other quarantined cities. Despite government orders, people are stocking up and preparing for the long hall. Costs of food are going up due to shortages.

Demographers and disease modelers are becoming increasingly suspicious of the data coming out of China.

The MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis (CGIDA) in London estimates the mortality rate for the Wuhan virus is about 1%. China is currently reporting 67,000+ infected with 1,527 deaths. Math suggests the number of infected should be close to 150,000 infected instead.

Professor Neil Ferguson, Director of The Abdul Latif Jameel Institute for Disease and Emergency Analytics (J-IDEA) made the following observations. The number of people infected is doubling approximately every 5 days. There are possibly 50,000 new infections every day in China. The virus is projected to grow over the next month (mid March) with a possible peak at that time locally in the Wuhan area. The peak for the remainder of China is expected to be another month later (mid April). For Professor Ferguson’s complete comments, see the YouTube link below.

 

Other disease modelers estimate the number of cases may ultimately range from 550,000 to 4,400,000. The link below discusses the issue with leading modelers from Los Alamos National Lab, Northeastern University, The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Laval University in Quebec, Canada.

Here is the latest from headlines from around the globe.

  • 67,000+ infected world wide
  • 1,527 deaths reported
  • 500 million people on lock down in China
  • Beijing imposes 14 day quarantine for people returning to the city
  • First case reported in Africa in Egypt
  • United States military is preparing for pandemic
  • Vietnam has closed its border with China
  • Russia has closed its border with China

Wuhan Virus Update, February 7, 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Pestilence, Prophecy with tags , , on February 7, 2020 by paulthepoke

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

February 7, 2020: China has stepped up their efforts to slow the spread of the Wuhan Virus. Any person suspected to have the virus has been collected and quarantined. Any person with a temperature, has been captured and quarantined. Government officials are going door to door to look for possible infected people. China is using drones mounted with thermal cameras to detect people with a fever. The Chinese government has declared the situation a “wartime condition”.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7977649/China-orders-Wuhan-round-suspected-coronavirus-patients-quarantine-camps.html

China’s Vice Premier Sun Chunlan called for a “people’s war” on the virus. For those who refuse to participate, they risk being “nailed onto the pillar of historical shame forever.”

China is looking to convert hotels and empty factories into temporary hospitals and “quarantine stations”.

For the latest data, check out this interactive website from Johns Hopkins.

https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6

  • 34,679 infected world wide.
  • 720 deaths (2% of cases)
  • 2,038 recoveries
  • Cases reported in at least 29 countries
  • Experts outside of China estimate 100,000 to 350,000 infected

The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated this is not a pandemic. The WHO defines a pandemic as “worldwide spread of a new disease”.

“Currently we are not in a pandemic. We are at the phase where it is an epidemic with multiple foci, and we try to extinguish the transmission in each of these foci,” Dr. Sylvie Briand, WHO Head Global Infectious Hazard Preparedness.

Apparently, these other cases outside of China are a “spillover”…

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

Thursday, 1/30/20: The World Health Organization finally declared a global emergency regarding the Wuhan Virus. Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization is calling “all countries to work together in a spirit of solidarity and cooperation. We are all in this together, and we can only stop it together.”

Click on the link below for the WHO complete statement and declaration.

https://www.who.int/dg/speeches/detail/who-director-general-s-statement-on-ihr-emergency-committee-on-novel-coronavirus-(2019-ncov)

President Trump and the United States declared a public health emergency on Friday, 1/31/20.

“I want to emphasize that this is a serious health situation in China, but I want to emphasize that the risk to the American public is currently low. Our goal is to do all we can do to keep it that way,” Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield

The Wuhan Virus is starting to make an economic impact on global markets. On Friday, 1/31/20, the Dow Jones Industrial Index in the United States closed down 603.41 points, or 2.1%, to 28,256.03.

The economic impact is likely to be significant considering China’s consumption of goods as measured against the rest of the planet. Chinese financial regulators are set to provide $173 billion of liquidity when markets open on Monday, February 3, 2020.

Michael Douville has weighed in on the impact of the Wuhan Virus as well. The virus may be the tipping point for the global economy. Michael has been monitoring the slowing global economy for at least the last 6 months. Indexes show shipping around the planet is slowing. On Friday, the yield curve in the bond market inverted which indicates a slowing economy. Economic activity is halting across China because of the Wuhan Virus. Michael likes gold, silver, bonds and rental properties. As always, check with your financial consultant. Click on the link below for Michael’s comments on the Wuhan Virus impact.

Daniel 12:4 But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.

Our current generation is definitely living in a time of people running to and fro. Humanity is able to quickly travel from continent to continent with airplanes. We can get from region to region by train, bus, and car.

Another translation for “increase” is multiply per Strong’s Concordance. Knowledge has and continues to multiply, but that does not mean mankind uses new found information wisely or skillfully.

We are watching firsthand how infection can rapidly spread around the globe.

So the big question remains… Is now the time of the end???

Coronavirus is an airborne virus spread in a similar way to colds and the flu. The virus attacks the respiratory system causing lung lesions.

Symptoms include: runny nose, headache, cough, fever, shortness of breath, chills and body aches.

It is incredibly contagious and is spread through contact with anything the virus is on as well as infected breath, coughs or sneezes.

In most cases, you won’t know whether you have a coronavirus or a different cold-causing virus, such as rhinovirus.

If coronavirus spreads into the lower respiratory tract, it can cause pneumonia in older people. Other populations include those with heart disease or weakened immune systems.

Currently, there is no vaccine for coronavirus.

International Economics and Bible Prophecy

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Michael Douville, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on August 26, 2019 by paulthepoke

Michael Douville and Paul Lehr discuss international economics and how it lines up with Biblical Prophecy. Biblical Prophecy is being fulfilled as we speak!

The economic situation in Turkey continues to deteriorate. The Turkish government is desperate for resources. How does the situation in modern day Turkey relate to Bible prophecy?

Ezekiel 38:12-13 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. 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?’

Will a strong US Dollar lead to the scenario of hyperinflation described in Revelation 6?

Revelation 6:5-6 When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. 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!”
