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.

No Confusion, A Severe Recession is Coming! Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 13, 2022 by paulthepoke

Deuteronomy 15:1-2 At the end of every seven years you shall grant a remission of debts. This is the manner of remission: every creditor shall release what he has loaned to his neighbor; he shall not exact it of his neighbor and his brother, because the LORD’S remission has been proclaimed.

The “Seasonally Adjusted” employment numbers came in higher than expected. This will virtually guarantee another Fed Rate Hike into an already struggling Economy. Manufacturing jobs are decreasing. Job openings are decreasing.

Chicago PMI is below 50 to 45 indicating contraction. Orders for manufacturing are slower. Dr. Copper is dropping indicating a recession is coming. People are taking on more consumer debt with credit cards.

European inflation is over 10%. The cost of energy continues to increase. The Euro is under pressure and declining in value.

In a previous video, I mentioned hiking into a declining economy has always resulted in a Recession. If the Fed hiked in September, I expected a Severe Recession; further hikes will result in further deterioration of the Economy into something that may be much worse that a Severe Recession!!!!

Mortgage applications are at a 25-year low and in Phoenix, there are already rumors of staff cuts at local lenders. Get ready for a phenomenal buying opportunity; not yet but coming.

Dr. Charles Nenner believes there will be a bounce in the Equity and Bond Markets too. He looks to late October into November for the bounce. Be nimble and quick, it is just a bounce in the markets.

https://michaeldouville.com/

The Federal Reserve has it all under control (sarcasm).

Inflation will no longer be a concern in the coming months. Is inflation peaking? Food, energy, and housing inflation continues to rise.

Your Job is going to be your concern. The Federal Reserve is using the Strategy of Demand Destruction to control Inflation. They know that Severe Recessions KILL Inflation. It also kills jobs, and Businesses, investments, futures…

Real wages are decreasing. People have less money.

More Interest rate hikes are likely to come. Pay off your debts. The cost of money is going up.

It may be awhile. At some point, opportunity is coming. Be prepared and ready!

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.”

https://www.theguardian.com/business/2022/sep/02/nord-stream-1-gazprom-announces-indefinite-shutdown-of-pipeline

Companies are shutting down across Europe due to high gas and electricity costs. This week, the world’s second largest steel maker is closing indefinitely.

Revelation 2:8a And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write…

Turkey is threatening Greece in the Aegean Sea. President Recep Erdogan invokes modern day Izmir or ancient Smyrna in his comments. Remember the churches in Revelation???

“We have only one word to tell Greece: Do not forget Izmir (Smyrna in Greek). Your occupation of the islands does not bind us. When the time comes, we will do what’s necessary. As we say, we may come suddenly one night.” Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan in reference to the end of the Greek occupation after Turkish forces entered the city in the Aegean coast in 1922.

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

What in the world is Israeli PM Bennett doing trying to broker peace between Ukraine and Russia? Bennett is an Orthodox Jew. Has he read Ezekiel 38-39?

The Iranian nuclear deal appears to be coming close to completion. Look who is working together… Iran, Russia, and China. Is this a good deal for the rest of the world? Will the world be a safer place? Who benefits economically?

Iran shows off their latest military equipment via the Russian press.

Federal Reserve Chairman Powell discussed the possibility of other alternatives to the dollar in a global economy.

Knock on effects are starting to emerge. The price of wheat, oil, and natural gas are going straight up. A war is taking place in the bread basket of Europe. Millions of people in North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, and Europe are at risk for hyperinflation of food prices.

Russia has cut off the supply of natural gas to Europe.

Turkish inflation is out of control.

Is Indonesia on the verge of joining the Abraham Accords???

Iran produces hype video demonstrating the destruction of the Israeli nuclear facility in Dimona. This was part of the Great Prophet 17 Iranian war games.

Military exercises were completed at sea as well… Two days later, Israel allegedly fired missiles at Iranian targets in Latakia Port in Syria.

Natural gas and electricity prices in Europe are at all time highs. Russia has effectively turned off the gas to Europe. Russian President Putin feels back into a corner with no where to retreat. His posture and tone are changing. Winter is setting in and cold weather is here.

The Libya Angle to Ezekiel 38… Czekmate

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 23, 2021 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Cush, and Put are with them, all of them with shield and helmet…

The ancient name of Put is highly likely the modern day country of Libya.

About 2,500 years ago, the prophet Ezekiel stated Russia will be joined by several countries with their future invasion of Israel from the north. One of those countries is modern day Libya.

Are we watching Gog of Magog attempt to build his coalition?

Saif Al Islam Gaddafi vs Khalifa Haftar vs Aguila Saleh vs Fathi Bashagha vs the prime minister Abdulhamid Dbeibeh as candidates for the Libya presidential elections are set for December 24, 2021.

What is America’s tortured history in Libya? How did we get to where we are now in the 21st century?

Who are the primary players in Libya today? What role is Russia playing? Russia is supporting a Gaddafi. What role is Turkey playing? Turkey is supporting Saddam Haftar who is the son of General Khalifa Haftar who has met with the Russians. Israel has met with the younger Haftar as well. Confused???

Oil and gas are the drivers. Libya has the largest oil and gas reserves in Africa. Putin wants control of the oil and gas market throughout Europe. Libya is another piece of the puzzle.

The Russia Angle to Ezekiel 38… Czekmate

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 13, 2021 by paulthepoke

In the mystifying direction of events, where do we fit? If you saw my last, it was introspective. This is not quite the same but this is a hypothesis based on current events and Bible exposition.

While cleaning up his first covenant people, God wants a demonstration of his power in the service of doing so. We, the new covenant intercessors have a role to play. I hope you enjoy one man’s opinion.

For those who REALLY want to understand Russia’s (ancient Magog) role in the Ezekiel 38-39 prophecy, this is a must see.

Ezekiel 38:16 You will come up against my people Israel, like a cloud covering the land. In the latter days I will bring you against my land, that the nations may know me, when through you, O Gog, I vindicate my holiness before their eyes.

Russia is on the move in Europe with threats to Ukraine. Russia controls the flow of natural gas to Europe. Russia supports Belarus who is another key player in the distribution of natural gas to western Europe. Winter is coming and it could be a very cold season for those who depend on their energy from Russia. Logistics are natural gas flow are discussed in the presentation.

How does the migrant crisis on the Poland and Belarus border factor into this equation? Russia is moving military equipment around the region.

Guess who has enough natural gas to disrupt Russia’s pricing control of the market to western Europe??? ISRAEL

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10195541/Kamala-says-White-House-playing-close-attention-Russian-troop-build-Balarus-border.html

Is natural gas “the hook” that draws Gog of Magog into the Promised Land to take spoil???

Ezekiel 38:4 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.

The volcanic eruption continues to intensify on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands.

Russian President Vladimir Putin hosted Turkish President Recep Erdogan in Sochi, Russia earlier in the week. Ezekiel’s Magog invasion continues to take shape as the two countries strengthen ties.

Natural gas prices are reaching all time historic highs across Europe as Russia cuts supply. The backdrop… As Israel begins to establish itself in the energy industry with their newly found, plentiful natural gas resources.

Iran has moved significant military hardware to their border with Azerbaijan. Tensions are increasing with their neighbor to the north and west. Iran also confirmed their proxy military resources throughout the Middle East.

Tropical storm Shaheen entered the Gulf of Oman and is bearing down on the Straits of Hormuz in a rare meteorological event.

Israel Joins the East Mediterranean Gas Forum, September 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Saudi Arabia/Sheba/Dedan, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 22, 2020 by paulthepoke

September 22, 2020: Today, Israel has become a member of the East Mediterranean Gas Forum (EMGF). The virtual conference was hosted in Cairo, Egypt. Current members include Egypt, Jordan, Greece, Cyprus, Italy and the Palestinian Authority. The goal of the group is to supply Europe with 10% of its natural gas needs.

Of note, France wants to be a member of the forum. The European Union and the United States are “observers”.

“…contribute to advancing regional stability and prosperity, creating an environment of trust, prosperity, stability and neighborly relations through regional energy cooperation…” -EMGF

https://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-joins-new-regional-forum-in-hope-of-selling-gas-to-europe

The EastMed Pipeline is estimated to cost $8 billion and will deliver up to 12 billion cubic meters of gas annually to Europe. The EastMed will be the deepest under sea pipeline. The line is estimated to be 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers) long.

https://paulthepoke.com/2019/03/19/israel-greece-and-cyprus-participate-in-gas-summit-march-2019/

Israel discovered natural gas off their coast in the Mediterranean in October 2015. There is enough gas for Israel to be energy independent and a significant exporter to western Europe. These gas fields are set to be ready for production in 2021.

https://paulthepoke.com/2015/10/14/trend-update-russia-magogisrael-ezekiel-38-39-october-14-2015/

Ezekiel 38:12 …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.

Currently, Russia is the largest exporter of natural gas to Europe.

These are the intentions of Gog, the leader of Magog (Russia). The Russians, along with the Turks and Iranians are planning to invade. Their motivation is economic. They want to steal natural resources from Israel.

Turkey has not been included the East Mediterranean Gas Forum. Of course the Turks will join forces with the Russians. These are the countries who stand to lose out economically because of the EMGF.

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?’

Historically, per Strong’s Concordance and NET Bible, Raamah settled in the southwest of the Arabian Peninsula. Sheba settled in the southern Arabian Peninsula. Dedan settled in the northern Arabian Peninsula. Dedan was an ancient capital of Saudi Arabia. It is modern day Al Ula in northwest Saudi Arabia. These areas make up what is modern day Saudi Arabia.

In light of recent Middle East peace developments and Biblical prophecy, don’t be surprised if Saudi Arabia has an agreement for normalized relations with Israel.

Today, Israel wishes Saudi Arabia congratulations on their 90th national year as a country. Israel expresses a future “with goodness and blessing in light of security, safety and prosperity, with our wishes for an atmosphere of peace, cooperation and good neighborliness.”

According to Ezekiel’s prophecy, it would appear modern day Saudi Arabia along with at least Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Jordan will protest the potential Russian invasion. Prophecy seems to indicate there will be more countries in this coalition with Israel.
