Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Michael Douville, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on January 7, 2019 by paulthepoke

The prophetic fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39 draws closer.

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.

Trend Update: Israel’s Natural Gas Riches, January 2018

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 30, 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?’

This is the 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.

January 30, 2018: The Israeli government has an anti-monopoly policy in place for protection. As part of this policy, the American company Noble Energy will sell $800,000,000 worth of shares and cash to be in compliance. The money will go to Tamar Petroleum Ltd. Noble’s holdings is now 25%.

At this time, the Tamar field is the only operational natural gas field. But things will be changing…

The development of the Leviathan natural gas field is in process. The Leviathan is Israel’s largest gas field. It is estimated to contain 18.9 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, plus 34.1 million barrels of condensate.

Noble Energy is looking to invest $4 billion (4,000,000,000) into the Leviathan project. The Leviathan is looking to be online by 2019.

So far, Noble has pocketed up to $1.25 billion. Almost $1 billion has been in cash.

Europe and Israel have agreed to the construction of a pipeline linking the Leviathan gas field to Europe. The name of the project is EastMed. The European Union will spend 34.5 million euros for planning the pipeline. The project is tentatively scheduled to begin construction in 2021. It is expected to take four years to be completed and operational by 2025.

The pipeline will go from the Leviathan field to Cyprus to Greece then to Italy. From Italy, the natural gas will be distributed throughout Europe.

The following statement is an excerpt from the Globes article…

“The EU regards EastMed as a strategic project that will enhance the energy security of European countries by giving them access to a supply of gas through another pipeline besides Russia’s and the dwindling gas resources of Norway and the Netherlands.”

Trend Update: Turkey on the Move in the Middle East, October 2016

As of October 19, 2016, Turkey has military operations on three fronts and President Recep Erdogan has aspirations of being more assertive in the region.

Two Greek fighter aircrafts engaged two Turkish F-16’s aircraft in a dog fight over the Aegean Sea. Military jets were reported to be armed. The incident took place southeast of Rhodes and south of Kastellorizo.

Greece and Turkey are both members of NATO. Since the failed coup attempt in the summer of 2016, Turkey’s President Erdogan has strengthened alliances with Russia.

October 19, 2016: Turkey ground troops and air force conducted operations near Azaz, Syria. Azaz is located north of Aleppo four miles from the Turkey border.

The town of Dabiq has been captured by Turkey. Dabiq is approximately 25 miles northeast of Aleppo and 6 miles from the Turkey border.  This is the heart of ISIS. Their monthly magazine is named “Dabiq”. This is the location of the ultimate battle of the Islamic Sunni prophecy. This is where the infidels are taken out. ISIS believes the infidels to be “Rome” or western civilization.

October 18, 2016: Turkey is providing air support in the Mosul Offensive against ISIS. “Our air forces took part in the coalition forces’ air operations in Mosul,” Turkey Prime Minister Binali Yildirim.

Turkey is not happy with their role in Mosul. They want a significantly increased role. Turkey feels obligated to help their Sunni brothers in Mosul. Their concern is the liberation of Mosul is being carried out by Shiite Iraqis.

“Military advisors” from Turkey are reported to be on the ground near Mosul, Iraq.

The book of Revelation was written from the island of Patmos. Historically Patmos was controlled by the Ottoman Empire. Today the island belongs to modern day Greece. Today, President Erdogan of Turkey is calling on populism and the glory days of the Ottoman Empire.

All seven churches in the Book of Revelation are in what is modern day Turkey. Four of the seven churches in Revelation have references to Satan. Jesus is the one talking directly to the churches. Jesus got His information from a reliable source, God the Father (Revelation 1). The four churches are: Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, and Philadelphia. Satan clearly has a foot hold in Turkey per the comments of Jesus to the churches in Revelation. Satan has a religious system and structures in place in this geographical area. If Satan’s home land and capital are modern day Turkey, would it make sense for him to establish his kingdom with his minions here?

For Scripture linking Meshech, Tubal, Beth Togarmah, and Gomer to modern day Turkey.

Revelation: Island of Patmos

Posted in Prophecy, Revelation with tags , , , , , on October 16, 2016 by paulthepoke

Revelation 1:9 I, John, your brother and fellow partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and perseverance which are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.

If a person is a believer of Christ and in the body of Jesus, this verse promises three things.

  • Tribulation…The Greek word is thlipsis/τηλιπσισ. It literally means: a pressing, pressing together, pressure; metaphorically: oppression, affliction, tribulation, distress, or straits. 
  • Kingdom…The Greek word is basileia/βασιλεια. It means: royal power, kingship, and dominion. It is the right to rule. Authority has been granted. 
  • Perseverance…The Greek word is hupomone/ηυπομονε. It means: steadfastness, constancy, endurance; a patient enduring. -Definitions per Strong’s Concordance 

…was on the island called Patmos…Patmos is an island in the Aegean Sea. The word “Patmos” means: my killing. The Apostle John was sentenced to the island of “my killing”. Where are you going? My killing.

Patmos is a small island approximately 10 miles by 6 miles. It is a rocky island. Tradition has John receiving the “Revelation” in a cave on the south side of the island.

Scholars generally believe Revelation was written during the reign of the Roman emperor Domitian. He ruled from 81-96 AD. The early church writers Irenaeus, Eusebius, Jerome and others indicated John was sent to Patmos by Domitian in 95 AD. John was released 1 ½ years later.

Historically Patmos was controlled by the Ottoman Empire. Today the island belongs to modern day Greece.

God chose to unveil or apokalupsis/αποκαλυπσισ in the Greek. It means to literally “take the cover off”. The word could be further defined as: laying bear, making naked; a disclosure of truth, instruction; concerning things before unknown; things withdrawn from view are made visible to all; manifestation, appearance.

The future end time’s scenario is completely revealed off of the coast of Turkey. All seven churches in the Book of Revelation are in modern day Turkey. The Apostle Paul planted many churches and spent a lot of time in Turkey…I suspect Turkey has a role.

Nelson’s Complete Book of Bible Maps & Charts; Holman Bible Dictionary.

Why was John placed on Patmos? …because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.

Revelation 1:3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.

 

Trend Update: 1 & 2 Thessalonians, December 2014

Posted in Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 3, 2014 by paulthepoke

1 and 2 Thessalonians were two letters in the New Testament written by the Apostle Paul in approximately 50 AD. A key theme of 1 Thessalonians is the coming of Christ. Another doctrine in 1 Thessalonians is the rapture. Themes of 2 Thessalonians are the Day of the Lord and God’s judgment. The citizens of the city were being deceived regarding these doctrines. The point of the letters was to encourage believers about the imminent return of Christ.

Thessaloniki, Greece was and is a real place. There were believers in Jesus in this town and area. In Paul’s time, 1st century AD, Thessaloniki was the capital of the Roman province of Macedonia. It was the largest city with a population of approximately 200,000 (Nelson’s Complete Book of Bible Maps & Charts). Understanding the history of the city, it is not difficult to imagine how and why a riot broke out when Paul arrived on the scene (Acts 17:1-9).

The first Jews are thought to have arrived in the region in 513 BC. The city of Thessaloniki was founded in 315 BC by King Cassander of Macedon. The Jewish community remained uninterrupted in Thessaloniki until 1492 AD, the time of the Spanish Inquisition and expulsion of Jews from Spain. 20,000 Jews migrated to the city to escape persecution. Thessaloniki continued until the early 20th century. It was called “Mother of Israel” and “Jerusalem of the Balkans”.

Today (December 2014), the Greek city is looking to revive its Jewish past. In the early 20th century, the city was essentially Jewish. In 1911, David Ben-Gurion and Yitzhak Ben-Zvi visited Thessaloniki. Their purpose was to study a functioning Jewish society.  They were looking for a model for the future state of Israel. The Jewish community in Thessaloniki was destroyed by the Holocaust during World War II.

Curious, the modern day city of Thessaloniki is looking to return to its Jewish roots. The city is a reminder of the letters written by the Apostle Paul. His message to the church is that of encouragement. Jesus is coming to get His bride. He is coming back as judge. His return is imminent.
