A gold coin with the depiction of Jesus as the “Good Shepherd” was found off the coast of Caesarea from ancient ship wreck. Hundreds of coins and artifacts were discovered as well.

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. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps executed the coordinated launches. 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.

Recession in Europe, Michael Douville

Posted in Michael Douville, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on February 18, 2019 by paulthepoke

Proverbs 22:3 The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.

Recession may be starting in Europe!

Real Estate is an illiquid asset, tenants and leases and sales and marketing and escrows take time. The timing model clearly indicates slowdown and for over a year the warnings have been very clear. The slowdown is now fact and price declines are starting to become visible.


Europe is teetering on the edge of a Recession. A Recession with Historic Debt and non-existent Interest rates!


New data shows Central Bank Intervention in the Global markets; markets react quickly as seen in the  recent runup. However, the liquidity lag time for the general Economy is easily a few quarters and may be too late to avoid a Recession.

Economic indications indicate Italy and the Netherlands have entered into recession. How should we prepare for global economic recession.


Is the Powerhouse of Europe, Germany, heading into Recession? What will this mean for the United States?

A Recession now could be EPIC! It also coincides with the Timing Model; the precursor to the ‘Explosive” Phase.


The Next Recession will be EPIC! Featuring Michael Douville

Ecclesiastes 3

1 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:

2b a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
3b a time to break down, and a time to build up;
5a a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
6 a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 a time to tear, and a time to sew…

MichaelSomething has changed! A Global down turn is underway; it can be seen in the Industrial statistics, the”Yield Curve” Spreads, the Baltic Dry Index. The slowdown can be seen in declining  Home Mortgage Applications and increasingly higher Auto loan delinquencies;  much, much higher credit card debt with slower repayments. Not surprisingly, the Spring Real Estate market in many regions of the US are exhibiting slowing sales when Property sales should be seasonally expanding. These are all signs of an aging Business Cycle.

This happens in Free Markets; it happened in 2010, 2012, and a longer decline in 2015. Each decline was met with Global Central Bank interference in the form of massive Liquidity injections via purchases in the Equity Markets and massive purchases of all forms of Bonds and Debt Instruments. Maybe a not so “Free market”.

Something has changed! Instead of ZIRP (zero interest rate policy), rates are rising! Instead of Massive Global Central Bank purchasing in a declining market, the Federal Reserve is actually selling! In April of 2017, the Central Banks were purchasing at the rate on $1.7 Trillion Dollars; tapering in April 2018 to an alleged big fat ZERO! The ECB is still caught supporting the European Markets as is the Bank of Japan for the Japanese Markets. The simple reason is that no else is willing to enter theses markets; no one entering at the current reduced and manipulated rates!

Something has Changed! Without the Financial Credit Pulse of coordinated Global Central Banks, Volatility and RISK have reappeared. The support has been removed and The Federal Reserve has announced not only are they NOT purchasing, but they are selling; $8 Billion Feb 5, 2018 alone. It is time to Pay Attention!!!

Recession-ahead

Your Wealth is at Risk! Americans 55 years and older  have a 70% of their Nest Egg in the Stock Market and 20% in the Bond Market; rising rates devastate Bond Funds! Those approaching retirement age are not “in it for the long Haul!” There is not enough time to recoup losses before the funds are needed.  There are times to be Aggressive and times to be Conservative; the Fed has transparently announced their intentions. This may be a time to be very conservative. In fact, one does not need to be fully invested 100% of the time. Without support, the Markets are free to act the way Markets are suppose to act. The next downturn could be EPIC!

Something has changed! Your Future is at stake! Now might be a very appropriate time to review your goals and concerns with your Financial Professional. Maybe an “Exit Strategy” should be developed with a goal to transfer into different asset classes.

Trend Update: Turkey’s Erdogan at Odds with Europe, March 2017

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 15, 2017 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:1-3 The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.

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.

According to the prophet Ezekiel, Russia will be joined by several countries in their future invasion of Israel. One of those countries is modern day Turkey. Scripture says Turkey is a player in the Ezekiel 38-39 scenario, the Gog and Magog war and invasion of Israel. The brothers of Magog (Meshech, Tubal, Gomer and his son Togarmah) appear to point to modern day Turkey.

Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan is making news across Europe. With the upcoming election later this spring on April 16, 2017, Erdogan is looking to expand his presidential powers. If given authority, he would be allowed to appoint the majority of judges, determine ministers, set the agenda for the budget, create law by decree, declare states of emergency, and dismiss parliament if necessary. This could potentially allow Erdogan to remain in power until 2029.

Erdogan is taking his campaign to Europe by holding rallies in European countries. Not all European countries are in favor of these Turkish political rallies. European leaders have expressed concern for safety at the rallies.

erdogan rally

Turkey’s president needs the vote and support of the people. The issue is Turks who are eligible to vote. Some of the registered voters are living abroad in Europe. It is estimated there are 5.5 million Turks who are eligible to vote who live in Europe. 1.4 million Turkish voters live in Germany.

March 5, 2017: Germany blocked several pro Erdogan rallies which resulted in some strong language from Turkey’s president.

“Your practices are not different from the Nazi practices of the past. I thought it’s been a long time since Germany left [Nazi practices]. We are mistaken.” –President Recep Erdogan of Turkey.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/mar/05/erdogan-accuses-germany-of-nazi-practices-over-blocked-election-rallies

March 12, 2017: Riot police engaged the pro Erdogan supporters in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The Turkish Family Minister was escorted out of the country. Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu was not allowed into the country.

Erdogan has not taken kindly to cancellation of rallies. “I have said that I had thought that Nazism was over, but that I was wrong. Nazism is alive in the West,” President Recep Erdogan of Turkey.

In reference to the Dutch, Erdogan proclaimed, “They are very nervous and cowardly. They are Nazi remnants, they are fascists.”

Sweden has cancelled scheduled events for Erdogan support.

Austria has indicated rallies are not appropriate in their country.

Denmark Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen postponed a gathering.

Switzerland has said no to Erdogan political rallies.

However, the French were agreeable to and allowed a rally in Metz, France.

Currently, Turkey is a member of NATO. Europe is not pleased with a fellow NATO member’s comments toward pledged allies. You know Russia’s Vladimir Putin is watching and courting Turkey’s Erdogan.
