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

In this episode of The Watchmen we look at the destruction of Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus.

Mark 3:24-25 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.

Revelation 2:9 I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

Israel’s fractured coalition government is splintering. Coalition whip Idit Silman from Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s Yamina party announced she was joining the opposition led by Benjamin Netanyahu, allegedly.

Waves of terror from the Palestinians continue across Israel during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The Mosaic Law’s Spring Feast of Passover is set for later this week. Civil tension is growing.

Listen to the latest from the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Check out up to date situational maps from the region.

The ripple effects from the war are having economic implications. Turkey is experiencing historic inflation. Lebanon has declared bankruptcy.

China has locked down 25,000,000 in Shanghai due to a COVID 19 variant. People are starving. Supply chain disruptions are occurring in the world’s largest logistical port.

The chatter around the Iran Nuclear deal continues. What does the arrest of 2 men in Washington have to do with this? Where did they come from? Visas trace their activity back to Iran and Pakistan.

The Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, has received a vote of no confidence and has been ousted from power. Who is behind this? People are taking to the streets across Pakistan by the thousands protesting. Pakistan is home to the largest Shia population outside of Iran. Something smells fishy…

Luke 21:11a There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. -Jesus

March 16, 2022: A 7.3 magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of Japan’s Fukushima prefecture. This is roughly the same place that was hit 11 years ago. Tsunami waves were estimated at about 3 feet above normal tide. It is estimated approximately 2,000,000 people lost electricity.

USGS

March 12, 2022: China has locked down 51,000,000 people. The population of 24 million people in Jilin province has been quarantined. Jilin Province is located in the northeast of China and borders North Korea. Shenzhen’s 17.5 million residents have been locked in. And Dongguan’s 10 million are shut in. This is part of the Omicron wave. Shenzhen an Dongguan are located across from the island of Hong Kong in the southeast of China.

Google

The lock downs are part of China’s zero COVID policy. Jilin City mayor and the head of the Changchun city health commission were fired this past weekend. They did not live up to the Chinese expectation of COVID management. China is not willing to live with the virus. China is scrambling to build hospitals. These medical facilities are being completed in approximately one week. One particular hospital is capable of treating 3,900 patients.

Shenzhen is the silicon valley of China. The city is also home to a busy port.

This is our world today. There are wars, threats of more wars, kingdoms against kingdoms, plagues, famines, and earthquakes.

Luke 21:28 Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near. -Jesus

Got Jesus? He wants all of us.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not willing for any to perish, but for all to come to repentance.

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…

This Week in Prophecy: Iraqi PM Drama, Ezekiel 38-39 Military Build, Ethiopia; US & S Korea Air Games, COVID Response in China & Australia

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 12, 2021 by paulthepoke

This Week in Prophecy

An assassination attempt was made on Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi. Efforts failed and al-Kadhimi survived. Riots have taken place near the Green Zone in Baghdad. Isaiah 13 prophecies of a time of complete desolation of the area in the Day of the Lord. Modern day Iraq is a prophetic hot spot for the end times scenario.

Military hardware continues to pour into Syria and the northern border of Syria. Russia and Turkey continue to move more resources closer to Israel. Ezekiel 38-39 tells what the future holds. The military build will continue to the point is looks utterly hopeless for Israel. But God has other plans…

Ezekiel 39:9-10 “Then those who inhabit the cities of Israel will go out and make fires with the weapons and burn them, both bucklers and shields, bows and arrows, war clubs and spears, and for seven years they will make fires of them. They will not take wood from the field or gather firewood from the forests, because they will make fires with the weapons; and they will take the spoils of those who plundered them and seize the plunder of those who plundered them,” declares the Lord GOD.

Ethiopia appears to be on the verge of civil war. Could this have implications for the region and ultimately the southern front of Ezekiel 38-39 with Libya and Sudan??? It’s worth watching. Governments are de stabilizing in various places. What about the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam project? This is going to be the largest hydroelectric plant in Africa. Isaiah 19 says the Nile River goes dry in the end times scenario.

Keeping a close eye on the Pacific theater with Australia, South Korea. The US, UK continue to forge military alliances in the region. This week, the US and South Korea initiated unannounced air force war games. More wars and rumors of wars just like Jesus said.

Australia makes a move on personal property, bank accounts, and driver’s licenses in response to COVID related violations and fine collection. China encourages the population to store up food in case of an emergency. China’s goal is zero COVID infections before the Winter Olympics coming up in February 2022.

This Week in Prophecy: Dead Sea Art, Rapture, China Hypersonic, Lebanon Civil War, Saudi’s & Iran

Artisans express their concern about potentially losing the Dead Sea. Their solution to draw attention to the cause, pose nude while painted in white as a reminder of Lot’s wife being turned to a pillar of salt.

Zechariah 14 says the Dead Sea is going no where. Eventually, the Dead Sea will come to life and flourish.

Scientists and researchers investigate a COVID 19 patient’s claim of a pending religious RAPTURE event. Scientists suggest COVID tricks the brain and impedes cognition.

China continues to talk about the reunification of Taiwan to the motherland as it tests its version of a hypersonic missile.

Lebanon is on the brink of another civil war. Hezbollah indicates its forces are larger than the current Lebanese Army. It has been a rough week in Lebanon with loss of electricity, chaos, and economic inflation.

Saudi Arabia and Iran appear to be willing to discuss the idea of normalizing relations. These two nations are in constant conflict and competition throughout the Middle East. Ezekiel 38 states Sheba and Dedan (modern day Saudi Arabia) will protest a future invasion of Israel from Russia, Iran, and others but ultimately do nothing.

The volcano on La Palma in the Canary Islands continues to erupt. Earthquakes are getting stronger and deeper. Concerns are this is not close to ending. Tsunami discussions are slowly increasing in frequency.

This Week in Prophecy: Ezekiel 38-39 and Russian War Games, Global Vaccine Mandates & Protests

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on September 17, 2021 by paulthepoke

This Week in Prophecy

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

Ezekiel 38-39 remains in the headlines as Russia is practicing war games with Belarus and Kyrgyzstan.

Anti vaccine mandates have taken the globe by storm in the last week. Protests have erupted in the United States, Israel, Austria, Paris, and Istanbul. Israel’s patience is being tested with the unvaccinated and have introduced genetic scanning to stop the spread of COVID and any mutation. Are these government mandates tying people’s behavior to economic participation a forerunner to the mark of the beast?

It would appear Revelation 9’s 200,000,000 man army is on the move in Afghanistan.

Daniel 9:26b …Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed.

These questions and more are discussed and answered on This Week in Prophecy.

Victoria Australia, Citizens Must Have the Jab to Participate in the Vaccinated Economy

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on September 7, 2021 by paulthepoke

Victoria, Australia: Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has announced the Australian state is headed towards the edict that citizens must have a COVID-19 vaccination in order to participate in the state’s economic system.

“There is going to be a vaccinated economy, and you get to participate in that if you are vaccinated. We’re going to move to a situation where, to protect the health system, we are going to lock out people who are not vaccinated and can be.”

“The economy, as best it can, will operate as close to normal as possible to people who have had two doses.” -Daniel Andrews, Victorian Premier

For additional analysis and commentary, click the YouTube link.

Victoria is also promoting the idea of “vaccination passports”. This technology will be utilized via Android and Apple smart phones.

“The Victorian Chamber raised the concept of vaccination passports months ago. You only need to look overseas to see that they are likely to be an integral part of our opening up.”

“Vaccination certificates must be integrated with QR code check in as a single system to reduce the impost on business and that technology should be rolled out as soon as such a scheme commences,” Victoria Chamber Chief Executive Paul Guerra.

Australian Jews celebrating Rosh Hashanah in a Melbourne synagogue were fined for violating COVID-19 policies. Approximately 100 worshipers were each fined $5,452 Australian dollars or $4,026 USD.

“I understand this has been a very difficult year for lots of people that can’t go and do the things that they want to do. But if we don’t follow these rules, then we will all have to wait longer to do the things that we want to do. That’s why the rules apply to everybody.” -Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews

Revelation 13:16-18 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.

Is Mark Andrews the antichrist? No

Is the COVID 19 vaccination the mark of the beast? No

One quarter of humanity has not died as noted at the onset of the Tribulation in Revelation 6 (roughly 2 billion people). There is no 3rd Jewish Temple. There are no two witnesses. Another third of humanity has not perished as noted in Revelation 9 (roughly another 2 billion people). The antichrist has not taken out the two witnesses and assumed power. The seal and trumpet judgments have not taken place.

As of September 2021, we are not in the Great 7 Year Tribulation. The context of the mark emerges with the total domination and rule of the antichrist. This takes place during the last 3½ years of the seven year tribulation.

The scope and scale of the mark of the beast is the entire planet. These current events are taking place in the Australian state of Victoria.

But the reality is this. A current political figure is requiring an action of individuals (getting vaccinated) in order to participate in economic affairs. The precedent is being set.

The Bible in Revelation 13 says this day is coming…

And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves… Everyone who is alive at this future time will be faced with this decision.

no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark… This decision will affect one’s ability to engage in commerce (groceries, gas, water, clothes, etc.). Take the mark, short term gain, eternal loss in the lake of fire.

These verses are an appeal to your intellect. Taking the mark is not an emotional response that is made because one has a flutter in their stomach. It is not a gut hunch. Take control and hold mental faculty. Pay attention closely. Carefully think and discern. Have sober purpose. This is a massive decision. It will be the biggest vote of your life. Your eternal destination rides on this choice.

Revelation 14:9-11 Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”

This Week In Prophecy: Jesus, Ezekiel 38-39, Inflation, Feasts Approaching, Oval Office Nap

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 4, 2021 by paulthepoke

This Week in Prophecy

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

On This Week in Prophecy we go around the world and take a look at events that align with the signs of the times according to the prophets, apostles, and Jesus.

We start with Jesus and a coin discovered near Tel Aviv.

Ezekiel 38-39 continues to dominate the headlines. Russia and China look to work together in the name of peace for stability in Afghanistan and the region. Russia, Iran, and China look to a naval exercise possibly later this year in the Persian Gulf, for peaceful purposes of course against piracy. Vladimir Putin looks to build and expand Russian naval capability. The build towards Magog’s attempted invasion of Israel continues.

Federal Reserve Chairman Powell had his big speech this past week from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The result, more money, more money, more money!!! Hello more inflation!!! Mind you the Chairman’s models suggest that inflation is “transitory”. Revelation 6 calls for hyperinflation at the onset of the Tribulation. So we watch.

President Biden took a nap in the Oval Office with Israeli Prime Minister Bennett. The leader of the free world is figuratively and literally asleep at the wheel.

Lastly, is the shofar a vector for the spread of COVID19??? Jewish concerns and questions ahead of the Fall Feasts?

These questions and more are answered on This Week in Prophecy.

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.

Click on the link below for the Bill of Rights

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…

Qantas and COVID, Vaccination Required

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Culture, Prophecy with tags , , , on November 23, 2020 by paulthepoke

Qantas is looking to issue a digital vaccination passport.

“Whether you need that domestically, we’ll have to see what happens with COVID-19 in the market, but certainly for international visitors coming out and people leaving the country, we think that’s a necessity.”

“I’m talking to my colleagues in other airlines around the globe and I think it’s going to be a common theme across the board. There’s a lot of logistics, a lot of technology that’ll be needed to put in place to make this happen, but the airlines and the governments are working on this as we speak.” Qantas CEO Alan Joyce

https://nypost.com/2020/11/23/qantas-to-require-covid-19-vaccine-for-international-flights/

Is Qantas setting a trend for economic activity??? The entertainment industry is kicking around the same idea for concerts and movies. Airplane rides today, survival at some point in the future. We know where this ends…

Revelation 13:16-17 Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.
