Russia Increases Presence in Libya, October 2018

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

Genesis 10:6 The sons of Ham were Cush and Mizraim and Put and Canaan.

These are Noah’s grandchildren. The sons of Ham by and large settled in Africa.

Put or Phut means “a bow”; a nation and people of northern Africa; probably Libyans. –Strong’s Concordance. Consensus among researchers and scholars is Put is modern day Libya.

Historical Put or modern day Libya is a country that will join Russia and others in their future invasion of Israel.

October 2018: Russia is adding military hardware and troops into Libya. The build appears to have started in March 2017.

Russia has built military bases in the Mediterranean port cities of Benghazi and Tobruk.

Russian Kalibr anti-ship missiles and the S-300 missile defense system are reported to be in Libya. Russian military equipment and military vehicles bound for Libya have been intercepted by Tunisia earlier in the year.

Libya Oil

Libya has the largest oil reserves in Africa. As of now, production is approximately 700,000 barrels per day. With political stability and safety, production could increase to 2,500,000 barrels per day. President Vladimir Putin’s Russia clearly wants a piece of the growing pie.

There is money to be made in other areas of the Libyan economy. The country has a rebuild coming from all the destruction of civil war. Putin wants to re-establish a railway contract and military arms deals.

Libya is also the main gateway to Europe for African immigrants. Six billion pounds a year are made in trading humans across the Mediterranean Sea. Italy is less than 300 miles away. Vladimir Putin looks to control the flow of immigration as a political tool against Europe.

Billions upon billions of dollars are on the table. Russia and Libya are drawing closer just like the prophet Ezekiel said…

China in the Mediterranean, 2018

Posted in Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 4, 2018 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 49:12 Look, they come from far away! Look, some come from the north and west, and others from the land of Sinim!

Genesis 10:16-18 the Jebusites, Amorites, Girgashites, Hivites, Arkites, Sinites, Arvadites, Zemarites, and Hamathites. Eventually the families of the Canaanites were scattered.

The following is from the Genesis Record, Henry Morris.

The Biblical mention of a people in the Far East named “Sinim” (Isaiah 49:12), together with references in ancient secular histories to people in the Far East called “Sinae,” at least suggests the possibility that some of Sin’s descendants migrated eastward, while others went south into the land of Canaan. It is significant that the Chinese people have always been identified by the prefix “Sino-” (e.g., Sino-Japanese War; Sinology, the study of Chinese history). The name “Sin” is frequently encountered in Chinese names in the form “Siang” or its equivalent.

The evidence is tenuous but, of all the names in the Table of Nations, it does seem that two sons of Canaan, Heth (Hittites = Khittae = Cathay) and Sin (Sinites = Sinim = China), are the most likely to have become ancestors of the Oriental peoples. Since it seems reasonable that divine inspiration would include in such a table information concerning the ancestry of all the major streams of human development, it is reasonable to conclude that the Mongoloid peoples (and therefore also the American Indians) have come mostly from the Hamitic line.

Revelation 16:12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east.

In 2015, President Xi of China released the Belt and Road Initiative. China is looking to increase business with at least 68 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Land routes are considered to be “the belt”. Sea routes are considered to be “the road”.

China is looking to spend billions of dollars of investment on infrastructure projects. China is investing in Israel. Here is a list of projects. There are seaports in Haifa and Ashdod, Mount Carmel tunnels in Haifa, and the Tel Aviv light rail.

“What concerns us is China’s Belt and Road Initiative and its growing role in Israel’s maritime domain, especially the operating of Haifa port,” Retired Rear Admiral Professor Shaul Chorev.

“If you are going to look at phenomena like this initiative, you should look at it from all points of view. Most militaries use civilian technology, and that’s one reason why the Chinese favor economic activities like expanding ports. These are not only commercial, but commercial with military implications,” Douglas Feith, Director Center for National Security Strategies at the Hudson Institute.

Warning: China Economic Data

Another warning that the Economy may not be as strong as we think. Data on China, as well as Europe is not good.

Trend Update: Russian Special Forces in Libya??? March 2017

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 20, 2017 by paulthepoke

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

Genesis 10:6 The sons of Ham were Cush and Mizraim and Put and Canaan.

These are Noah’s grandchildren. The sons of Ham by and large settled in Africa. Historical Put is a country that will join Russian and others in their future invasion of Israel.

Put or Phut means “a bow”; a nation and people of northern Africa; probably Libyans. –Strong’s Concordance. Consensus among researchers and scholars is noted that Put is modern day Libya.

In the last year, Russia has strengthened ties with Turkey, Iran, Syria, and Lebanon. Significant military and economic relationships with African countries have not been observed related to the Ezekiel 38-39 prophecy.

March 14, 2017: Russia is reported to have sent special troops and forces to western Egypt. The military operatives are near the Libyan border. Egyptian sources confirmed a 22 member unit of Russian special forces.

Fighting is reported internally in Libya near oil resources. Russia is suspected to support General Khalifa Haftar of the Libyan National Army. According to Reuters, General Haftar met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Moscow, on November 29, 2016.

Previously, the former Soviet Union had a friend in Libya’s Moammar Qaddafi. Looks like Russia under the leadership of Vladimir Putin wants to reconnect with an oil rich country.

United States and western officials have concerns this could follow like the course of events in Syria.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/mar/14/russian-special-forces-deployed-in-egypt-near-libyan-border-report

Russian officials have denied the report and called it “fake news”…

The Anadolu Agency, a news source out of Turkey, has denied the report in their publication.

http://aa.com.tr/en/middle-east/no-russian-troops-in-egypt-military-source/770934

RT out of Russia is denying as well. RT is reporting that both Russia and Egypt indicate there are no Russian troops in Egypt.

“There are no Russian special forces in Sidi Barrani,” Russian Defense Ministry’s official spokesman, Igor Konashenkov.

“There is no foreign soldier from any foreign country on Egyptian soil. This is a matter of sovereignty,” Egyptian Army Spokesman Tamer al-Rifai.

Trend Update: All Roads Lead to Mosul, October 2016

Posted in Mosul/Nineveh, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on October 17, 2016 by paulthepoke

Genesis 10:11 From that land he went forth into Assyria, and built Nineveh and Rehoboth-Ir and Calah…

That “he” is Nimrod. He is the one who built the ancient city of Nineveh. The city was built approximately 4,000 years ago. Nineveh is the city furthest north of those built by Nimrod. Nineveh is the city and people in focus in the Book of Jonah. Nineveh was once the largest city in the known world.

Historically, Nineveh is the capital of the Assyrian Empire.

Nineveh is located in modern day Mosul, Iraq. The modern day region maintains it ties to the past. Mosul is located in the province of Nineveh.

For links to multiple articles regarding ancient Nineveh/modern day Mosul, Iraq…

https://paulthepoke.com/category/mosulnineveh/

October 17, 2016: The Iraqi government has announced the beginning of the Mosul Offensive to liberate the city of ISIS.

In today’s world, there are many different news sources. With advancements in technology, Twitter and Periscope are providing a view from the front lines of the conflict. Participants in the battle are issuing their own version of what is happening in the area. If interested, key word search #MosulOffensive on Twitter or Periscope. Be ready, it is raw.

Most of the activity is taking place on the highways and villages leading towards Mosul. Heavy fighting appears to be outside of the city at this time.

The following information is from an ISIS twitter stream. “Martyrdom Operations” have been completed south of Mosul in Qayyara. The location is about 35 miles south of Mosul. Translation for “Martyrdom Operation” is suicide mission. Video of a Martyrdom Operations can be found on Twitter and YouTube.

Military operations have been reported east of Mosul.

Kurdish forces are reported to be on the outskirts of southeast Mosul in Al Kuwayr. Villages between Erbil, Iraq and Mosul have been cleared of ISIS.

Millennial Kingdom: Geological/Geographical Implicatioins, Broad Plain of the Earth

Posted in Creation, Millennial Kingdom, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , on July 5, 2016 by paulthepoke

Revelation 20:9 And they came up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, and fire came down from heaven and devoured them.

The context of this verse is at the conclusion of the 1,000 year jail sentence of the devil. Satan has been released from prison. He is deceiving the nations to bring them to battle against Jesus and His followers in Jerusalem.

…the broad plain of the earth…Notice the term is singular, one land mass. Mountains and islands are not mentioned. They have been removed. The Greek word for “broad plain” is platos (πλάτος). Per Strong’s Concordance, the term suggests great extent. The Greek word for “earth” is ge (γῆ). The term is defined as: arable land; the ground, the earth as a standing place.

This is a huge land mass or a super continent.

In the beginning, God created a single land mass on planet earth. Genesis 1:9-10 Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good.

Some would argue the land was divided during Noah’s flood. There is one verse that is very clear when the continents emerged.

Genesis 10:25 Two sons were born to Eber; the name of the one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan. Peleg’s life and times are noted after the Tower of Babel. Babel is where God scattered the peoples and changed their language from one to multiple languages. After Babel, God broke up the single land mass as well.

…the earth was divided…The Hebrew word for “earth” is `erets. This is the same term used in Genesis 1:9-10. It means: land or earth. The Hebrew word for “divided” is palag. It means: to be split or divided. Stated plainly, the land/earth was split/divided.

It appears, God will put His creation back in the order as He intended, one land mass, no mountains, no islands.

Revelation 21:5 And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

 

God’s Handiwork, The Heavens

Posted in Creation, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 30, 2015 by paulthepoke

Psalm 19:1-4 The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their utterances to the end of the world.

heavens

There is all kinds of talk in today’s world. “Blood moons, tetrads, solar eclipses, signs in the stars, Second Coming of Christ, Armageddon, economic chaos, rapture, resurrection…sigh…”

Does God really give us signs in 2015? If so, are the celestial events we are witnessing in today’s time really of God? Is there even a god(s)? Come on now, we live in a scientific and technological age. The Bible is just a book of little stories and fables…

God uses the heavens to communicate. We are reminded throughout the Bible. But, He made this crystal clear “In the beginning”…

Day Four of Creation Week

Genesis 1:14-16 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also.

https://paulthepoke.com/2011/07/27/genesis-114-15-plan-and-purpose-prophetic-implications/

…let them be for signs and for seasons…

The Hebrew word for “signs” is ‘owth. It means: sign, signal, a distinguishing mark, banner, remembrance, miraculous sign, omen, warning; token, ensign, standard, miracle, proof (definition provided by Strong’s Concordance).

…let them be for signs and for seasons

The Hebrew word for “seasons” is mow`ed (singular); mow`edim (plural). It means: appointed place, appointed time, meeting; appointed time; sacred season, set feast, appointed season; appointed meeting; appointed sign or signal; tent of meeting (definition provided by Strong’s Concordance).

In western culture we think of seasons: spring, summer, winter, and fall. The Bible is a book of Hebrew culture. Their word for “season” has a different connotation.

The second reason given by God for the sun, moon, and stars is to signal an appointment in regards to place and time. This is God’s calendar and day planner.

God says He does not change. He stated He will use the heavens to communicate during creation (Genesis 1:14). He has stated He is unchanging in the Old Testament. Malachi 3:6a “For I, the LORD, do not change…” There is no change in the expression of His Son. Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. God says He is immutable in the New Testament. James 1:17 Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.

As a reminder, a solar eclipse will usher in the Feast of Trumpets/Yom Teruah/Rosh Hashanah on September 13, 2015. This is the beginning of the civil new year in Israel.

A Blood Red Super Moon is scheduled for Tabernacles, September 28, 2015. The best viewing in the world of the lunar event will be in Jerusalem, Israel.

These celestial events take place on God’s appointed holidays. So does God use the sun, moon, and stars to communicate in 2015? If so, what is He telling us?

…fade the Twilight music…
