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

Isaiah 17, The Burden of Damascus

In this episode of The Watchmen, it would appear Israel has upped the ante by targeting the Damascus International Airport. Significant damage has occurred to the runways of the airport which resulted in the closing of the airport to commercial and domestic traffic. Russia has voiced their displeasure towards Israel. The concern is the flow of military equipment from Iran to Lebanon and Hezbollah.

The European Commission is proposing a gas deal with Israel via Egypt. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is traveling to Israel this week to iron a potential gas deal. The goal is “to advance relations between the EU and Israel, especially cooperation in the area of energy. The president will also discuss with Israeli government representatives the global reaction to the food crisis and the situation in the Middle East.”

Meanwhile, the Israeli Navy is standing by drilling rigs as they travel to the Karish gas field in the Mediterranean Sea. Israel looks to continue to expand their production of natural gas.

2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.

Lawlessness continues to abound. Mexican President López Obrador attempted to blackmail President Biden at the Summit of the Americas. To President Biden’s credit, “We do not believe that dictators should be invited.” However, The International Organization for Migration tells the United States more immigration is coming and deal with it. Meanwhile, governors from Texas and Florida are bickering on how to manage the influx of illegal people coming to the United States. All the while, Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega has allowed Russian troops into the country for training, law enforcement and emergency response. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro was not invited to Los Angeles for the summit, so Maduro went Tehran to visit President Ebrahim Raisi at the Sa’adabad Palace. Backroom deals galore…

Iran is inching closer to a nuclear bomb.

Revelation 6:6 And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

Hyperinflated food prices are noted at the onset of the Tribulation. So we continue to watch trends of food inflation. Russian President Vladimir Putin and “Nazis” and others continue to weaponize food by setting grain fields on fire, laying mines in fields and sea ports, and destroying stockpiles of grains in Ukraine.

The list continues to grow in the United States. Ninety-five (95) food processing plants have gone up in flames since President Biden has taken office. The list continues to expand and increase in frequency. This essentially has become a war on poultry. Chickens and turkey plants appear to be the main target with millions upon millions of birds destroyed. The result is a reasonably priced source of protein in eggs and birds are impacted.

Chinese owned Smithfield Farms has announced they are closing business in California due to bureaucratic red tape. Yet another strain on the food supply.

China continues to threaten Taiwan.

Daniel 2:33 …its legs were iron, and its feet were part iron and part clay.

This is Nebuchadnezzar’s statue from the prophet Daniel. The focus is the last global empire. This has yet to emerge on the scene. The point is to file this information away. It is interesting only because there are 10 nations involved. The Deterring Enemy Forces and Enabling National Defenses (DEFEND) Act has bipartisan support in the House and Senate in the United States. The goal is to create an integrated missile and air defense infrastructure to defend against the Iranians. The bill would allow the US Defense Department to support Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, and Oman. Are we saying this confederation of nations is the group of 10 nations? NO! Just watching with interest.

The Watchmen: Temple Mount Control & Jordan, Abraham Accords Trade, Erdogan Travels to Saudi Arabia, Rublezone, Putin’s Surgery, Iranian Reach & Propaganda

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 2, 2022 by paulthepoke

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

In this episode of The Watchmen we look at Jordan wanting full control of the Temple Mount complex. Are we watching Jordan respond to regional pressure with regards to security of the Muslim religious sites? How does this relate to Ezekiel 38-39? Flags are flying on the Temple Mount during Ramadan. Who do these flags represent?

The United Arab Emirates are flying heavy transport planes in and out of Israel. It appears defense contracts are being fulfilled between the Abraham Accord countries. The concern is an increasingly hostile Iran with nuclear intentions.

President Recep Erdogan of Turkey travelled to Saudi Arabia this week for the first time in five years. Erdogan stated, “I see and believe that it is in our joint interest to boost our cooperation with Saudi Arabia in such areas as healthcare, energy, food security, agricultural technologies, defense industry and finance. It seems that we have significant potential particularly in renewable and green energy. We will hopefully discuss and thoroughly evaluate these issues.”

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps allegedly tried to assassinate an Israeli diplomat in Turkey. Iran is reaching out via Hezbollah around the globe including the British Virgin Islands with drug deals.

Russia is cutting off the flow of natural gas to European countries of Poland and Bulgaria who refuse to pay in rubles. However, the Rublezone has manifested with Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary who are agreeable to pay for natural gas in rubles.

Allegedly, Russian President Vladimir Putin is scheduled for cancer surgery in the near future. Fellow KGB comrade Nikolai Patrushev is picked to assume authority while Putin is under treatment. Putin is suspected to be managing Parkinson’s Disease and symptoms related to the progressive neurological disorder. Check out video and professional analysis of Putin’s physical condition.

Teaser alert… Food processing plants are catching fire around the United States. 18 plants have been affected in the last 6 months. More on this topic to come in future episodes of the Watchmen.

Lastly, nothing like a little Iranian Propaganda gong wrong. In preparation for Jerusalem Day, things don’t go as planned. This section of the Watchmen was brought to you by Beavis and Butthead. Sorry, we could not help ourselves. Deep down, grown men have a teenage boy inside of them!

The Watchmen on Iran, February 2022

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 20, 2022 by paulthepoke

Czekmate and Paul discuss Iran in relation to the Ezekiel 38-39 prophecy… Just a couple of dudes sittin’ on the wall having a discussion.

Iran and Russia recently signed an economic agreement in relation to natural gas from the Chalous Field in the Caspian Sea. The Russian company Gazprom appears to be the primary benefactor. The easiest distribution of natural gas goes through Ukraine.

What role do Iranian proxies such as Hezbollah play in current affairs? Iran is supporting multiple groups around the Middle East and the Arabian Peninsula. The goal is the direct flow of energy resources from Iran to western Europe.

Talks continue in Vienna with Iran and the west regarding the Nuclear Deal initially approved by President Obama and ultimately rejected by President Trump. Where do the negotiations currently stand?

Russia is increasing its efforts to communicate their disapproval of recent Israeli activity in Syria. Coordinated communications are emerging. Russia is pursuing “humanitarian assistance” in Syria.

US military brass has expressed concerns of Russian military activity spilling into the Middle East from Ukraine.

Satellite images show Russian building possible military hospitals in preparation for a possible invasion.

Shortages of commodities are emerging around the world. Energy prices continue to spike higher.

This Week in Prophecy: Dead Sea Art, Rapture, China Hypersonic, Lebanon Civil War, Saudi’s & Iran

This Week in Prophecy

https://valortube.com/groups/paul-lehr/

Artisans express their concern about potentially losing the Dead Sea. Their solution to draw attention to the cause, pose nude while painted in white as a reminder of Lot’s wife being turned to a pillar of salt.

Zechariah 14 says the Dead Sea is going no where. Eventually, the Dead Sea will come to life and flourish.

Scientists and researchers investigate a COVID 19 patient’s claim of a pending religious RAPTURE event. Scientists suggest COVID tricks the brain and impedes cognition.

China continues to talk about the reunification of Taiwan to the motherland as it tests its version of a hypersonic missile.

Lebanon is on the brink of another civil war. Hezbollah indicates its forces are larger than the current Lebanese Army. It has been a rough week in Lebanon with loss of electricity, chaos, and economic inflation.

Saudi Arabia and Iran appear to be willing to discuss the idea of normalizing relations. These two nations are in constant conflict and competition throughout the Middle East. Ezekiel 38 states Sheba and Dedan (modern day Saudi Arabia) will protest a future invasion of Israel from Russia, Iran, and others but ultimately do nothing.

The volcano on La Palma in the Canary Islands continues to erupt. Earthquakes are getting stronger and deeper. Concerns are this is not close to ending. Tsunami discussions are slowly increasing in frequency.

Day 7: Hamas & Israel, Shavuot 5781/2021

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gaza Strip/Philistia, Pentecost/Shavuot/Feast of Weeks, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 16, 2021 by paulthepoke

May 16, 2021: The fourth of seven God Appointments, Shavuot or Pentecost, is scheduled to begin Sunday, May 16th at sunset. For Shavuot, Jewish men have been commanded to come to Jerusalem and the Temple for over 3,500 years since the time of Moses.

For more details on the Appointment, click on the link below.

For additional information and analysis, click on the YouTube video below.

It would appear Israel’s military is not stopping their intervention to formally recognize the holiday.

“The party that bears the guilt for this confrontation is not us, it’s those attacking us,” Netanyahu said in a televised speech. We are still in the midst of this operation, it is still not over and this operation will continue as long as necessary.” -Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Over 2,300 missiles and rockets have been fired into Israel since Monday. Today is day 6 of the conflict. Watch the Iron Dome anti missile battery in action.

Below is an interesting message and response from Twitter. The social media site blocked the IDF from sending messages regarding missile and rocket warnings to the citizens of Israel.

The press is now further upset with Israel. A building that housed Middle East Eye, Al Jazeera, the Associated Press, and other press outlets was destroyed with a precision munition. The building was destroyed with surgical precision. Accounts indicate the building was empty of human personnel.

The IDF gave a one hour notice and multiple warnings to evacuate the building. The IDF indicated the building was home to Hamas intelligence.

“…entities belonging to the military intelligence of the terrorist organization Hamas.”

Click on the video below from Middle East Eye.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has recently issued a statement in English in regards to the events taking place over the last week. Listen for yourself the Prime Minister’s complete comments.

We continue to keep an eye on the northern border of Israel.

NBC News Analyst Evan Kohlmann tweeted out the following. Upwards of 5 rockets were fired towards Israel. Currently, the Quneitra Province in Syria is home to Russian, Syrian, Iranian, Hezbollah, UN Troops and other factions. This is different than the three rockets fired from Lebanon the day before.

And the sirens continue to blare throughout the land of Israel…

Israeli Ground Offensive Has Begun

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gaza Strip/Philistia, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on May 13, 2021 by paulthepoke

May 13, 2021: As of a few hours ago, Israel has launched ground forces into the conflict with Hamas. As of this posting, ground forces have not entered the Gaza Strip. Israel has called up 9,000 reservists. Israeli citizens within a few miles of the border have been ordered to their bunkers.

Of note and extreme interest are the missiles being fired toward Israel from Lebanon. Are Hezbollah and proxy Iran entering the conflict? This needs to be monitored very closely. Is Israel on the verge of fighting a war on two fronts?

Tonight, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a public statement on the conflict. The goal is to restore calm and security to the nation of Israel. Netanyahu’s statement is made in Hebrew. See the English transcript below.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, meanwhile, posted: “I said that we would charge a very heavy price from Hamas. We do it and we will continue to do it with great intensity. The last word was not said and this operation will continue as long as necessary.”

The article below has a wealth of information and many photos.

At some point in the future, this is coming to what we know as the modern day Gaza Strip.

Ezekiel 25:15-17 Thus says the Lord God, “Because the Philistines have acted in revenge and have taken vengeance with scorn of soul to destroy with everlasting enmity,” therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I will stretch out My hand against the Philistines, even cut off the Cherethites and destroy the remnant of the seacoast. I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes; and they will know that I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance on them.”

Russia Lectures Israel, August 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on August 10, 2020 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:2 “Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him…”

The following is a statement from the Russian Foreign Ministry directed to the nation of Israel.

On the evening of August 3, the Israeli Air Force launched strikes on the positions of the Syrian military in response to an alleged attempt by unknown persons earlier that day to plant an explosive device near the dividing line in the occupied Golan Heights. At the same time, the Israelis, as expected, placed all responsibility for the incident on the Syrian side. According to incoming reports, observation posts, anti-aircraft guns, objective control systems, as well as command posts of the SAR Armed Forces were subjected to an air attack. We strongly condemn these actions and express our serious concern about the next aggravation of relations between Israel and Syria. We warn the Israeli leadership against repeating such steps, fraught with dangerous consequences for the entire Middle East region. We express our support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the SAR. We call on both sides to show restraint and prevent further escalation of tensions.” 

https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/russia-warns-israel-against-launching-more-strikes-in-syria/

The 1st century Jewish historian Flavius Josephus indicated the Magogians were called Scythians by the Greeks. They lived north of the Black Sea. During the same time period, Philo equated Magog with southern Russia.

For over 1,200 years, the Bible and historians of their day equated the people of Magog with the Scythians. They lived in modern day Russia. The Bible and historians are consistent. Magog is modern day Russia. Magog will invade Israel in the future. Magog will get theirs handed to them by the Lord Himself (Ezekiel 38-39).

August 10, 2020: The entire Lebanese government has resigned. No one is at the wheel in Lebanon. There are many suitors who want to fill the vacuum of power… for example, the Lebanese people, Russia, Turkey, Hezbollah, and Iran. Big time consequences are at stake on the northern border of Israel.

It stands to reason in light of prophecy, betting odds are Russia fills the void in Lebanon.

Ezekiel 39:2 And I will turn you about and drive you forward, and bring you up from the uttermost parts of the north, and lead you against the mountains of Israel.

The prophets in Jeremiah 49 and Ezekiel 38-39 state Iran is a major player in the end times scenario…

Jeremiah 49:34-39 That which came as the word of the LORD to Jeremiah the prophet concerning Elam, at the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying: “Thus says the LORD of hosts, ‘Behold, I am going to break the bow of Elam, the finest of their might. ‘I will bring upon Elam the four winds from the four ends of heaven, and will scatter them to all these winds; and there will be no nation to which the outcasts of Elam will not go. ‘So I will shatter Elam before their enemies and before those who seek their lives; and I will bring calamity upon them, even My fierce anger,’ declares the LORD, ‘And I will send out the sword after them until I have consumed them. ‘Then I will set My throne in Elam and destroy out of it king and princes,’ declares the LORD. ‘But it will come about in the last days that I will restore the fortunes of Elam,’” declares the LORD.
