Hebrew Altar in Egypt

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Egypt/Nile River, Isaiah, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , on May 4, 2019 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 19:21 In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the LORD near its border.

At some point in the future there will be a structure of worship, an altar to the God of Israel in the middle of Egypt. This is an incredible statement.

Imagine what would happen if one would go over to Egypt at this time in history (May 2019) and try to build an altar to some god other than Allah. I don’t think that would be well received or tolerated. Note the location of the altar, it will be in the middle of Egypt. The Hebrew word for midst is tavek. It means among or middle.

It would appear the pillar is a second and different structure than the altar based on grammar. It is placed on the border, which border?

Ancient Egypt was divided into Upper (area in southern Egypt) and Lower (area in the north) Egypt. The terminology upper and lower is based on the flow of the Nile. The Nile flows from upper elevations in the south to lower elevations in the north. The border between the two areas is roughly modern day Cairo or near Giza and the Great Pyramid. Generally, the pharaoh of Egypt was leader of both Upper and Lower regions.

The other possible border would be the one Israel and Egypt share.

There needs to be a point of comparison between the two nouns altar and pillar. Note that altar (mizbeach) is a masculine noun and pillar (matstsebah) is a feminine noun. The gender of the two nouns is an issue because of the pronoun that begins the next verse, “It”. In the Hebrew, “It” is a masculine pronoun. It would stand to reason that ties it to the masculine noun altar (mizbeach).

The altar is in the middle of Egypt. The pillar could be on the border of Israel/Egypt or the border of Upper and Lower Egypt.

Isaiah 19:22 It will become a sign and a witness to the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to the LORD because of oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Champion, and He will deliver them.

The altar will be a signal to the LORD. So there is no confusion, the altar is in the middle of Egypt. Believing Egyptians will cry out to the God of Israel at that time. The idea of oppression is “being squeezed” in the Hebrew. God hears them and sends them One who will deliver and save. One who is exceedingly and abundantly great and strong. Guess who?

He is coming again…

The Promised Land in Christ

Posted in Christine "Clarity" McDonald, Gospel with tags , , , , , , , on January 5, 2019 by paulthepoke

Everyone be blessed!

Christine McDonald is an advocate for Mental Health Champions.

The Promised Land represented a new life for the people of Israel who had lived a life of bondage and slavery in Egypt. It is also symbolic of a new life in Christ. It says we are no longer going to be driven by the appetites of our old nature, but Christ now lives in us to live a righteous and holy life. It does not mean we’re perfect, we’re just forgiven.

The new life in Christ has nothing to do with church attendance or even doing good things. Christ said there will be many people who will claim Him as their Savior but they never really knew Him. In other words, there was no evidence of the living Savior in them.

“Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!” (Matthew 7:22-23).

Jesus invites everyone to partake of the new life He offers. We only must believe. Invite Him to remove our sins and allow Him to live as Lord through our lives.

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me?” (Revelation 3:20)

Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam 2022 Completion Date

Posted in Egypt/Nile River, Isaiah, Prophecy, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on December 18, 2018 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 19:5-8 The waters from the sea will dry up, and the river will be parched and dry. The canals will emit a stench, the streams of Egypt will thin out and dry up; the reeds and rushes will rot away. The bulrushes by the Nile, by the edge of the Nile and all the sown fields by the Nile will become dry, be driven away, and be no more. And the fishermen will lament, and all those who cast a line into the Nile will mourn, and those who spread nets on the waters will pine away.

Yes, the Bible says the Nile River will go dry. This is part of the end time scenario leading up to the return of the Messiah, Jesus Christ.

Ethio Embassy Rwanda Twitter

December 2018: Metal and Engineering Corporation (Metec) has been fired from the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) project. Metec is military run company. The main contractor for GERD project is Italy’s Salini Impregilo.

Salini Impregilo had filed complaints against Metec. As a result, the former chairman of Metec and other leaders were jailed for corruption with dam project.

“We have a plan to generate power from the first two units within the coming two years and then probably the dam will be completed in the year 2022,” Kifle Hora, GERD Construction Manager.

Ethiopia is starting to reap the benefits of the GERD project. Ethiopia made $37 million during the first nine months of last year. The country exported 190 MW of power. Along with the Gilgel Gibe 3 project, Ethiopia is estimated to export more than 10,000 MW. Experts believe Ethiopia economy has the ability to export over 45,000 MW.

BIG TIME $$$ is on the table. Do you think Ethiopia and neighboring consumers of the energy care if Egypt suffers the consequences of modern conveniences that electricity brings???

Is the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam the reason for the Nile going dry in the end times? Will God use a drought or a combination with the dam? Time will tell. One thing is for sure, at some point in the future the Nile River will go dry. Economic calamity and social unrest will follow in Egypt. These events are the precursor to the return of a Savior. The story ends well…

Isaiah 19:20 It will become a sign and a witness to the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to the LORD because of oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Champion, and He will deliver them.

Disbelief Is the Issue, Featuring Phil Kulis

Posted in Phil Kulis with tags , , , , , , , , on June 28, 2018 by paulthepoke

philkulis-picIn the Garden of Eden, Satan came in the form of a serpent and the result was sin entered the world.

In the Exodus, Moses went before Pharaoh – the ruler of the world empire. When Aaron cast Moses’s staff before Pharaoh as God told Moses to do, it turned into a serpent – the symbol for sin. In return Pharaoh’s men cast their staffs down and their staffs also turned into serpents. But the serpent of God ate the serpents of Pharaoh. God’s symbol for sin took away the sins of the world. Aaron then lifted up the serpent and it turned back into a staff. But the serpents of Pharaoh were no more.

Later while wandering in the desert the Jews were complaining, so God sent fiery serpents to bite them and they were dying from being bitten. They asked Moses to pray to God then God told Moses to make a serpent of bronze and put it on a stick on a hill. Whenever anyone was bitten by a fiery serpent all they had to do was look at the bronze serpent and they would not die.

The only other mention of the bronze serpent is when Jesus sets up the most famous verse in the Bible.

John 3:14-18 “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

Sin is not the issue.
Disbelief is the issue.

Trend Update: Israel & Egypt Ink Gas Deal, February 2018

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 22, 2018 by paulthepoke

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?’

See the video link below for additional analysis and geography.

Oil and natural gas will be serious bait for the Russian invasion of Israel. At some point in the future, Russia and its allies will invade Israel for their “great spoil”.

For details linking modern day Russia to ancient Magog. See the link below.

Full disclosure, the author of this article is a shareholder in Zion Oil & Gas (ZN); listed on NASDAQ Exchange.

February 14, 2018: Zion Oil & Gas has discovered oil and natural gas in the Megiddo-Jezreel Valley.

“I am ecstatic to see clear evidence of hydrocarbons (oil and gas) in the deeper portion of our Megiddo-Jezreel #1 well, a project that we have been working on for years. However, at this time we cannot comment on the commerciality or ability to successfully produce the well. We ask that our shareholders continue to pray for safe and successful drilling, logging, and testing operations, and for God’s wisdom for management as we make key decisions in the following days and weeks. Please be patient. We will provide further updates after we have adequate time to properly evaluate the logs and finalize our well testing program following the recent events.” Zion’s CEO, Victor G. Carrillo

This is the location John discusses at the outset of the bowl judgments in Revelation.

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

 

February 19, 2018: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel announces a $15 billion deal to export natural gas to Egypt. See the link below for a video statement from the Prime Minister.

Noble Energy and Delek Drilling are the benefactors of the deal. They will be selling natural gas to Dolphinus Holdings of Egypt. The natural gas is coming from the Leviathan and Tamar natural gas fields off the coast of Israel in the Mediterranean Sea. 64 billion cubic meters of natural gas are expected to be exported over 10 years.

Egypt has the ability to liquefy the natural gas and transport around the world. Those liquefication plants are owned by Royal Dutch Shell. Egypt announced the deal to their public as a nameless partner.

Security of pipelines and distribution will be a factor. Historically, ISIS has vandalized pipelines in the region of the Sinai Desert.

Sukkot/Tabernacles 5778/2017

Posted in Fall Feasts, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 3, 2017 by paulthepoke

Leviticus 23:33-36 Again the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘On the fifteenth of this seventh month is the Feast of Booths for seven days to the LORD. On the first day is a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work of any kind. For seven days you shall present an offering by fire to the LORD. On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation and present an offering by fire to the LORD; it is an assembly. You shall do no laborious work.’”

In October 2017 (Gregorian calendar), per the sighting of the new moon, The Feast is scheduled to begin on Friday, October 6th and proceed through Thursday, October 12th. In God’s timing, The Festival is scheduled to run from Tishri 15-21 (Hebrew calendar). Tishri 1 is declared when the new moon is sighted.

Part of the holiday is a road trip and vacation to Jerusalem. Every family needs to build a sukkah (singular). Families will build sukkot (plural). Sukkah can be translated as: booth, cottage, covert, pavilion, tabernacle, or tent. (Strong’s Concordance)

sukkotThe tents serve as a reminder to the forty years of wandering in the desert due to a lack of faith in God after the Exodus from Egypt.

Leviticus 23:42-43 You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All native Israelites shall dwell in booths that your generations may know that I made the people of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.”

Despite their faithless attitude, the holiday is a thanksgiving for the gracious provision and safety God showed Israel during their travels in the desert as noted in Deuteronomy 8. The appointment also marks the end of the harvest season.

sukkot rain palmFor future consideration, Tabernacles is the only God appointed feast gentiles will be required to attend. At some point in the future, the nations will be encouraged to pay their respects to the Lord and King Jesus Christ. If you don’t, there is a consequence.

Zechariah 14:16-19 Then everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Booths. And if any of the families of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, there will be no rain on them. And if the family of Egypt does not go up and present themselves, then on them there shall be no rain; there shall be the plague with which the LORD afflicts the nations that do not go up to keep the Feast of Booths. This shall be the punishment to Egypt and the punishment to all the nations that do not go up to keep the Feast of Booths.
