Isaiah 10:34 He will cut down the thickets of the forest with an axe, and Lebanon will fall by the Majestic One.

On This Week in Prophecy… It would appear Israel and Lebanon have reached a historic agreement in regards to maritime borders and the development of natural gas fields in the Mediterranean Sea. The agreement has not been signed on the dotted line. Details are beginning to leak out into news outlets.

Israel appears to have its security concerns addressed and met. The Karish gas field will likely remain under Israeli control.

Lebanon will get the economic benefit of the Qana gas field. Total Energy of France will help develop the gas field. Allegedly…

The devil will be in the details…

Ezekiel 38:1… 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…

The Kerch Bridge connecting the Crimea Peninsula and the mainland of Russia was blown up over the weekend. Russian President Vladimir Putin was personally involved with the opening of the bridge a few years ago. The explosion of the bridge occurred on Putin’s birthday.

Russia has since responded with heavy missile attacks across Ukraine over the past two days. Utilities including electricity and water have been destroyed throughout Ukraine.

Things are escalating quickly…

Kim Jung Un in North Korea is personally overseeing military drills involving a tactical nuclear attack on South Korea. He continues to aggressively posture towards the United States.

Revelation 6:5-6 When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. 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!”

Grain container barges are backed up on the Mississippi River. Drought has resulted in lower water levels on the mighty river. The result is shipping costs are going through the roof.

A Dutch seed and plant company is shutting its doors in April 2023 due to the rising cost of energy, wages, and red tape. This is yet another example of food supply chains being squeezed.

Dollar Inflation? Rising to 20 or 25% Inflation? Is this possible? Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on August 23, 2022 by paulthepoke

Proverbs 4:13 Hold on to instruction; do not let go. Guard it, for it is your life.

Proverbs 1:5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels…

Proverbs 27:12 The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.

Well, I do not have good news. Dr. Nenner believes Inflation will be with us in the US for a very long time. How is this possible?

There are government restrictions of Resources like food and energy that will cause scarcity and scarcity causes prices to rise. The United States is experiencing policies of restriction. Scarcity Inflation!

There is now a restriction of Credit, higher interest rates and Quantitative Tightening by less purchasing of Mortgage-backed securities. When it costs more, it raises expenses and higher expenses causes higher prices.

With the US dollar heading toward all-time highs, the US is exporting our Inflation. The dollar is now stronger than the Euro. The dollar is gaining strength against currencies around the world. When the US Dollar is high, this causes Inflation, much higher prices, in countries with weaker currencies.

Utility and energy costs are exploding across Europe. Germans are paying 14X more for electricity than they were a year ago. European Businesses are closing across the European Union. Goods are being restricted affecting industrial production and construction.

What happens when, not if, when the US Dollar Cycles down. Will prices react as well? Will prices go up 20%, 30 % or more?

Make plans now!!!

Revelation 6:5-6 When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. 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!”

A hallmark of the beginning of the tribulation is hyperinflation as noted in Revelation 6 which leads to global famine. Revelation 6 talks of a time when it will cost a day’s wage just to eat.

Are we there yet? No, I don’t believe the seven year tribulation has started.

We know how we get to the beginning of the tribulation: a peace maker, war, hyperinflation, starvation. We are trending and living in inflationary times…

The Watchmen: Burden of Damascus Airport, Europe Gas Deal with Israel?, Lawlessness, Food Security Concerns Increase, Feet of Iron and Clay?

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 13, 2022 by paulthepoke

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.

This Week in Prophecy: Israeli Defense Pact, Grain Shortages Emerging, Gold Backed Ruble?, Russian Gas Flow, Food Inflation

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 4, 2022 by paulthepoke

This Week in Prophecy, April 4th, 2022:

The Negev Summit was completed this past week in Israel. Is a military alliance forming between Israel, Morocco, Egypt, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States? Air and Naval exercises have been completed in the Red and Mediterranean Seas. The objective is regional “peace and security”.

Revelation 6 prophecies of a time when it will cost a day’s wage to provide for basic provisions to eat a loaf of bread. Food shortages, supply chain disruption, and inflation are trending toward difficult times.

The early results of the Russian invasion of Ukraine are in. Israel is facing shortages of eggs and wheat. Exports out of Ukraine have stopped. Israeli suppliers are scrambling to fill the void left in food supply chains.

Is Russia looking to return to a gold and commodity backed Ruble? The central bank is buying gold. President Vladimir Putin is demanding natural gas be paid in rubles from those buying the Russian product. Will Putin cut off the flow of natural gas to Europe if they refuse to pay in Rubles?

Will oil and commodity payment be linked to the ruble as well? What does this mean for commodity and precious metal prices? How will this affect the paper gold market of the COMEX?

The Russian Ruble has almost recovered to levels prior to the invasion of Ukraine. What does the future hold for the value of the Russian Ruble and the US Dollar?

German grocery prices are headed up from 20 to 50% starting Monday…

Is Historic Inflation of 15%, 20% or even 25% coming to YOU??? Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville with tags , , , , , , on March 18, 2022 by paulthepoke

In November of 2020, I mentioned on my video that for the first time in over a decade, I saw Inflation Coming into the Pipeline. Even I am amazed at the intensity of the Inflationary Spiral. Inflation continues to be in the Pipeline and continues to cause problems.

Where are we in the Real Estate Cycle? We are about to enter the Explosive Phase!

Pundits across the Nation are continuing to call for a Housing Crash, but here in Phoenix, Arizona, I see no evidence of any slowdown let alone a Housing Crash. There is such a shortage here, I do not see how there can be a Crash. Phoenix is enjoying over 100,000 in new residents, but only 30,000 new units; 14,000 of those will be rental units leaving only 16,000 new homes for over 100,000 new residents. Real Assets are needed in Inflationary times.

Oil is spiraling upwards! Oil is over $100 a barrel. This is not good for the economy.

We are living in historic inflationary times. Copper, aluminum, iron ore, are going up and unless you are a Commodity Trader, the better Real Asset is a single-family home. How high will inflation go???

Is food insecurity and hyperinflation of grains on the horizon? The war in Ukraine is a factor. This is the bread basket of Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East.

How are you going to protect yourself?

Revelation 6:5-6 When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. 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!”

Revelation 6 talks of a time when it will cost a day’s wage to eat. John the Revelator promises that hyperinflation is coming at some point prior to the return of Jesus Christ. Hyperinflation is on the scene prior to the onset of the Great Tribulation. Are we watching the dominoes being put into place??? Are we witnessing the seeds of hyperinflation? Be on guard and watch!

The Watchmen: Jerusalem Peace Negotiations, Iranian Nuclear Deal, Saudi & Libyan Response, India

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 12, 2022 by paulthepoke

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

Ezekiel 38 continues to trend in today’s news flow.

President Zelensky of Ukraine has requested peace negotiations to take place in Jerusalem. Zelensky personally reaches out to Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. The United States pressures Israeli to join the west in sanctions against Russia. Israel attempts to keep a neutral position in the conflict.

President Isaac Herzog of Israel visits President Recep Erdogan of Turkey. Both countries look to thaw icy relations of the recent past.

The Iranian Nuclear deal has hit a snag. Top Iranian negotiator has been flying back and forth between Tehran and Vienna. Where does the situation stand as of today? Russia wants reassurances they can continue to do energy business with Iran. Reserves of natural gas and oil are at play in the Caspian Sea.

The Saudis are re-assessing their relationship with the United States. Can the Americans be trusted? Issues regarding the Sunni and Shia divide are coming into play. Sunni Muslims (Saudis, Pakistanis, and others) are growing increasingly concerned with Shia Muslims (Iranians). The issue is the Iranian Nuclear negotiations.

Libya’s new government has spoken out against Russia after receiving the Russian seal of approval. Libya is the largest producer of oil and natural gas in Africa. So of course, Russia is interested in Libyan affairs. Libya’s ultimate consideration is food imports and inflated prices from Ukraine and Russia.

What role will India play in world affairs? A supersonic missile managed to penetrate Pakistan this past week.

The Watchmen: Israeli PM to Russia, Iranian Nuclear Deal, Axis Emerging, Inflation Risk Rising

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.

Russia and Ukraine, March 1, 2022, Operational Update & News

Multiple sources are documenting what Russian troop movements are. Intelligence agencies are weighing in on the issue. Did Belarusian President Lukashenko release some classified information by mistake? If so, you can be he will hear about it and be placed on a tight leash.

Has Russia dropped the Father of all Bombs on Ukraine? The bomb is AKA as a thermobaric bomb, a vacuum bomb, or an aerosol bomb. Video evidence out of Kharkiv seems to indicate this is likely.

Hyperinflation watch per Revelation 6:6. The cost of oil and wheat are on the rise. Supply chains are being disrupted and currencies are being devalued in Russia and across the Middle East and North Africa. Basic goods are getting expensive.

The Russian Ruble is getting crushed and is now worth less than a penny.

Lastly, portraits of leadership… Ukrainian vs. Russian leadership.

This Week in Prophecy:

What are the ripple effects of Russia invading Ukraine?

photo: Wikipedia

Finland and Sweden are discussing NATO membership. Russia’s response is a threat of military and political consequences.

Syria’s President Assad is supportive of Russian intervention in Ukraine. Assad sees this as a “correction of history.”

As a reminder, Ezekiel 38-39, Jeremiah 49, and the Burden of Damascus from Isaiah 17 are looming and appear to be coming into focus with each passing day.

A significant consequence of Russia’s actions will be the inflation of grain prices throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Egypt will bear the brunt with 80% of grain imports coming from Russia and Ukraine.

Revelation 6 instructs there will be hyperinflation at the onset of the tribulation. Wheat is specifically mentioned in verse 6.

Lastly, Kyiv has spiritual significance in Putin’s grand plan for what he sees as Russia. What role does spirituality play in the conflict? Putin states he wants to rebuild Christendom.

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on January 19, 2022 by paulthepoke

Michael Douville and Paul Lehr talk about modern day Turkey and it’s economy. How does this relate to Biblical prophecy?

Who are these ancient names and peoples as it relates to modern day countries? Ezekiel 38-39 and Revelation 6 are discussed. What do the prophecies actually say? Is this relevant to today’s world?

Who is Turkey’s president Recep Erdogan? What is his relationship with Russia’s Vladimir Putin?

Turkey’s Lira is a crashing currency. The cost of goods is going up. Food costs are rising rapidly. Turkey is at risk for hyperinflation. Is Turkey running out of money? What does the future hold for Turkey?
