China and India Clash in Kashmir, June 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , on June 16, 2020 by paulthepoke

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.

Granted, the context of the kings from the east is the bowl judgments. This is the latter third of the Tribulation in the book of Revelation. The events taking place on the Chinese/Indian border are not the fulfillment of prophecy. Seals have yet to be broken.

June 16, 2020: China and India are literally fighting deadly combat hand to hand. The incident is taking place in the Himalayas in the Galwan Valley. Reports indicate guns have not been fired and soldiers are engaging with rocks and batons. India claims to have lost 20 soldiers. China states they have 43 injured and/or dead.

These are the two largest militaries in the world. According to Google, India has a population of 1.353 billion people. China has a population of 1.393 billion people. These two countries account for almost 40% of the Earth’s population.

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.

Locusts Sweeping Across the Middle East, February 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Trend Update with tags , , , , on February 1, 2020 by paulthepoke

Joel 1:4 What the gnawing locust has left, the swarming locust has eaten; and what the swarming locust has left, the creeping locust has eaten; and what the creeping locust has left, the stripping locust has eaten.

Yes, the context of Joel 1 is the land of Israel. The prophet does offer a glimpse into the future of the Promised Land. There are an estimated 80-90 species of locusts in the Middle East per Wycliffe Bible Commentary. Locust plagues are a sign of the end of days per Joel.

Middle East, February 2020: Plagues of locusts are gaining steam and growing across the region in the countries of Pakistan, Oman, Yemen, Ethiopia, Kenya, Eritrea and Djibouti.

These are reported to be the most devastating swarms in over 70 years. The region is already on alert for food needs & now locusts have invaded.

Officials in Kenya have resorted to using pesticides from airplanes, machine guns, tear gas, shouting and banging on drums. Officials state they are having a hard time addressing the locusts because the area is complicated by regional wars and conflicts.

2019 was a wet year for eastern Africa due to tropical cyclones. Officials are very concerned because the timing of the swarm is prior to entering the wet seasons in the region. With increased water and warm temperatures, experts warn the swarms could expand 500 fold… Allegedly.

For all the readers and followers in India, be on alert for a possible June arrival.

In mean time, chow down. Locusts are kosher.

Leviticus 11:22 These of them you may eat: the locust in its kinds, and the devastating locust in its kinds, and the cricket in its kinds, and the grasshopper in its kinds.

The swarms of locusts are not in Israel as the prophet Joel promises. The experts can not excuse this away, locust plagues are a sign of our current times.

The question is… are we entering into the time Joel prophesied???
