Ezekiel 38:2 Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him…

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.

For Scripture linking Meshech, Tubal, Beth Togarmah, and Gomer to modern day Turkey, see the link below.

The Bible and ancient historians point to the fact the land of Magog is modern day Russia. See linked post.

July 13, 2017: Reports are emerging that Turkey and Russia have reached an arms deal regarding the S400 Missile Defense System. The deal is estimated to be at $2.5 to 3 billion. Four missile systems and missiles are part of the deal. Two batteries would be delivered to Turkey. The other two would be manufactured in Turkey. This would give Turkey the ability to initiate their own production of the S400 Missile System. The agreement is being called a “technology transfer”. Moscow is waiting on the check from Turkey.

Turkey is currently a member of NATO. The United States is utilizing the Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey as a launching point for missions against ISIS. Turkey is also said to be in negotiations for F35A fighter jets and helicopter contracts. In addition, President Erdogan has personally expressed his dissatisfaction with President Trump and United States support of the Kurds in the region.

Recep Erdogan needs Russian support to rid himself of the Kurds. The S400 System has the ability to shoot down planes, missiles, and drones. Range of the system is up to 250 miles.

According to the prophet Ezekiel, Russia will be joined by several countries in their future invasion of Israel. Russian, Turkish economic and political ties continue to strengthen. Russia’s presence in Syria is reported to be for “peaceful purposes” and “stability” for the region.

President Erdogan of Turkey is a wild card in the geopolitical scenario. Erdogan does not care for Syrian President Assad. Erdogan wants Assad out. Problem, Assad is supported by Russia. Erdogan does not care for the Shia presence near ancient Nineveh or Mosul, Iraq. Problem, Iranian Shia are supported by Russia.

All that said…predominantly Iraqi Shia are supported by the United States near Mosul. The United States also supports predominantly Kurdish Sunni near Mosul.

July 14, 2017: It has been one year since the attempted coup in Turkey against the leadership of Recep Erdogan. To celebrate the occasion, 7,348 government workers were fired. These folks were suspected of supporting the ideals of Fethullah Gulen who lives in Pennsylvania.

From a year ago, 50,000 have been arrested. 150,000 have been fired.

Trend Update: Paris Middle East Peace Conference, January 2017

Posted in Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 15, 2017 by paulthepoke

Zechariah 12:3 It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.

January 15, 2017: Dateline Paris, France. Today the French hosted a Middle East Peace Conference with the expressed goal of a two state solution. Leaked information indicated the conference is looking to divide the land of Israel for a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. The city of Jerusalem would be divided. The division of Jerusalem includes the real estate of the Temple Mount. The region of the Golan Heights would be handed over to Syria as part of the deal. The result of the conference was tough talk for incoming President Trump. For now, the land and Jerusalem were not divided.

Seventy nations gathered in Paris for the event. Representatives from Israel and a future Palestine are not participating in the discussions and process. French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault stated the French have “no intention other than promoting peace”.

The backdrop of the event is the pending inauguration of Donald Trump as President of the United States on Friday, January 20, 2017. The conference is intended to send a strong message to President Trump. World leaders are very uncomfortable with the proposed move of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Many have stated a potential move would only complicate matters and increase the risk for further violence. A potential embassy move would interrupt and discourage an opportunity for peace in the Middle East per critics of Trump. This topic appears to be the focus of today’s meeting. The drum beat coming out of today’s conference is a potential US Embassy move to Jerusalem is a threat to peace.

Current Secretary of State John Kerry, “an explosion, an absolute explosion in the region, not just in the West Bank, and perhaps even in Israel itself, but throughout the region.”

The Palestinian Authority’s supreme Sharia judge Mahmoud Al-Habbash stated an embassy move to Jerusalem would be a “declaration of war.”

The Palestinians are asking the Russians and Vladimir Putin to help stop a potential US Embassy move.

The French are threatening President elect Trump with “serious consequences” with a move to Jerusalem. These actions would be deemed a “provocation”.

For those interested, see the link below for the official closing statement of the conference.

http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.765207

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called the meeting “useless” and “futile” and “rigged”. “Tomorrow’s world will be different, and it is very near.”

Scripture says the land will ultimately be divided. Frankly this process has already begun when the Gaza Strip was given to the Palestinians in 2006. We were told peace will come in exchange for land…

Joel 3:2b Israeland they have divided up My land.

A little food for speculative thought…was the antichrist in the shadows in Paris??? Are we that close??? Geopolitical events could get very Biblically real in a hurry. Get concerned when humanity is talking peace and security.

1 Thessalonians 5:3 While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape.

Have you looked into the biography of Jesus? You may want to read it. If you are not familiar with Him, I would recommend the Book of John or 1 John. They are straight forward and easy to read, no tricks.

 

 

Trend Update: Can God Manage President Trump? November 2016

Posted in Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on November 15, 2016 by paulthepoke

Daniel 2:21a It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings…

Romans 13:1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.

Proverbs 8:15 By Me kings reign, and rulers decree what is just…

Many people out there are scratching their heads. Donald Trump has been elected president. This does not make sense. Why would God allow this? Christians and many others say Trump is a moral reprobate. He says crazy, stupid stuff. He is obnoxiously wealthy and flaunts it. And look at his hair…What does God want with Donald Trump? One would think He would at least pick a Christian or a Jew. He could have chosen Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, or even Bernie Sanders. What gives…Donald Trump??? CHINA!

Did God allow Donald Trump to be elected President of the United States? Scripture from Proverbs to prophets in the Old Testament to the Apostle Paul in the New Testament says…YES! He removes kings and establishes kings…

God is in control of history. That said, many are questioning God’s sovereign decision.

God has a history of taking foreign kings to achieve His will and purpose. Examples include Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and Tiglath-Pileser of the Assyrian Empire. One particular example comes to mind, King Cyrus of Persia.

The coming of King Cyrus was promised by the prophet Isaiah. God had multiple purposes for Cyrus even though he did not know God (Isaiah 45:4b). God has no problem choosing a person who does not know Him or believe in Him. These are not obstacles to God.

Why would God choose a foreign king who does not know him? A couple of reasons for choosing Cyrus were to rebuild Jerusalem and the Temple.

Isaiah 44:28 “It is I who says of Cyrus, ‘He is My shepherd! And he will perform all My desire.’ And he declares of Jerusalem, ‘She will be built,’ and of the temple, ‘Your foundation will be laid.'” –God

God chose a Persian King Cyrus to corral and protect His people, Israel.

Isaiah 45:4 For the sake of my servant Jacob, and Israel my chosen, I call you by your name, I name you, though you do not know me.

Scholars estimate Isaiah wrote this prophecy approximately 150-160 years before King Cyrus. Fast forward in time to the book of Ezra.

Ezra 1:1 In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom and also put it in writing:

The remainder of the book of Ezra is the fulfillment of this promise in Isaiah 44:28.

God wasted no time. He inspired Cyrus in the first year of his leadership.

Many Christians and Christian leaders see Donald Trump as a type or pattern of King Cyrus. Even the Jewish Sanhedrin is calling on President elect Trump to act as a modern day Cyrus to help rebuild the Temple. Time will tell…

In the future, God will use a leader from what many believe to be Russia or Biblical Magog. In Ezekiel 38-39 God will use the leader of Magog, Gog, like a pawn to achieve His purpose. Ezekiel 39:7 And my holy name I will make known in the midst of my people Israel, and I will not let my holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.

God is tired of people talking trash about Him.

Take comfort and be calm. Frankly, get a bigger box. God can handle a Trump presidency.

Isaiah 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. -God

 

 

Trend Update: Sanhedrin Calls on Trump & Putin to Rebuild Temple, November 2016

Posted in Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 10, 2016 by paulthepoke

Ezra 1:1-2 In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom and also put it in writing:

Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: The LORD, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and he has charged me to build Him a house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah…

November 10, 2016: The Jewish Sanhedrin is calling on Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin to come together and rebuild the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. The Sanhedrin is encouraging the two leaders to act as modern-day Cyrus figures: non-Jewish kings who recognize the importance of Israel and the Temple.

“The leaders of Russia and America can lead the nations of the world to global peace through building the Temple, the source of peace,” Rabbi Weiss, the Sanhedrin Spokesman.

The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 is a public law of the United States. The law was passed by the 104th Congress on October 23, 1995. The law states the United States Embassy in Israel should be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The law states Jerusalem is to be an undivided city. Jerusalem is recognized as the capital of Israel. Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama have opposed the law because of national security concerns. This law was to be enacted by May 31, 1999.

https://www.congress.gov/104/plaws/publ45/PLAW-104publ45.pdf

November 10, 2016: President elect Trump had stated on the campaign trail he wished to enact this law.

David Friedman co-chair of Trump’s Israel Advisory Committee stated, “It was a campaign promise and there is every intention to keep it. We are going to see a very different relationship between America and Israel in a positive way.”

Jewish leaders like Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely are calling on Trump to move quickly with the relocation of the embassy.

Friedman further elaborated the following. “The level of friendship between the U.S. and Israel is going to grow like never before, and it will be better than ever, even the way it was under Republican administrations in the past.”

“The hostility will be gone between Israel and the U.S. We know how Obama treated the prime minister of Israel and how [Hillary] Clinton berated the prime minister… We will move forward with mutual respect and mutual love and a much better future for the U.S. and Israel.”

In 2012, Putin visited Jerusalem for a third official visit. On a late night visit to the Western Wall, Putin was respectfully silent, prayed, and read Psalms. In response to a greeting from an Israeli citizen, Putin discussed the importance of the Temple Mount and the Jewish Temple.

“That’s exactly the reason I came here, to pray for the Temple to be built again,” Vladimir Putin.

http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/78372/bin-exclusive-sanhedrin-asks-putin-trump-build-third-temple-jerusalem/#j4ZkLaLPKVUHd2LL.97

In his first year of his leadership, King Cyrus called on the Jewish people to go home and rebuild their Temple. The Sanhedrin is calling on President Trump in his first year and for Vladimir Putin to push for the rebuilding of the Temple.
