Ecclesiastes 7:12 For the protection of wisdom is like the protection of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it.

Proverbs 3:18 She (wisdom) is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her; those who hold her fast are called blessed.

Michael Douville is making the call for a recession. It is time to prepare. Think through your financial plan.

Inflation is the culprit. Gas prices are out of control and there is no end in sight.

Real Estate continues to increase in price in different parts of the United States. Demand continues for housing. It would appear rental property is a consideration. Home Buyer sentiment is crashing. One size does not fit all.

Some commodities (lumber, copper) are dropping in price.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is beginning to slow.

Jobless claims are beginning to increase. Jobs are starting to go away.

University of Michigan’s consumer index is the lowest in history.

The Federal Reserve is raising interest rates into an economic slow down. Historically, 100% of the time, this leads to a recession.

The Watchmen: Rolling Stone & End Times, Tigris River Drying, Saudi & Israeli Economic Ties, Food Supplies Tighten, More Inflation, Iran, China & Taiwan, Cultural Changes & Hate Speech

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

First and foremost, my apologies for audio quality, sorry.

In this episode of The Watchmen, The Rolling Stone fulfills Peter’s prophetic words. The Rolling Stone offers their take on Evangelical Christians and current affairs as related to the second coming of Jesus Christ.

2 Peter 3:4 They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.”

The Tigris River and the Mosul Dam are back in the news. Water resources are dwindling in Iraq. Farmers are feeling the affects of drought in the region. Turkey has a system of dams impacting the Tigris River valley. Nahum says ancient Nineveh and the river valley eventually get flushed and flooded.

Nahum 1:8 But with an overwhelming flood He will make an end of Nineveh and pursue His enemies into darkness.

Nahum 2:6-8 The river gates are thrown open and the palace collapses. It is decreed that the city be exiled and carried away; her maidservants moan like doves, and beat upon their breasts. Nineveh has been like a pool of water throughout her days, but now it is draining away. “Stop! Stop!” they cry, but no one turns back.

Saudi Arabia and Israel are talking economic agreement regarding a variety of topics The futuristic city of Neom is a consideration. This is a $500 billion investment!!!

Russia is allegedly targeting Ukraine grain stock piles. Food resources continue to be targeted across the United States. Turkey is experiencing run away inflation of up to 75%. Supply chains continue to be disrupted. The cost of food is going up around the planet. Revelation 6 talks of food hyperinflation and a day’s wage to feed a family.

Things are not exactly rosy inside of Iran. Citizens continue to protest against the government.

China is encroaching on Taiwan. Are we getting closer to another geo political event?

Traditional marriage and hate speech… Western society and culture continue to move further away from Judeo Christian values. Does God really have standards for “traditional” marriage? What does God say about same sex marriage and relationships? See Romans 1. Talk with God about it, He is the messenger.

Charles Nenner; The US Economy Is Heading Into TROUBLE! Interviewed by Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 11, 2022 by paulthepoke

Ecclesiastes 3:1 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven…

Proverbs 22:3 The prudent see danger and take cover, but the simple keep going and suffer the consequences.

With inflation, market volatility, and economic changes occurring in today’s world, Michael Douville had a chance to sit down and visit with one of the world’s foremost cyclical economist and market forecaster, Dr. Charles Nenner.

Dr. Nenner offers a free trial subscription for a few weeks. Please mention you watched this video. https://www.charlesnenner.com/

May 2022: An Amazing and Candid interview with Charles Nenner. Charles discusses his Dow Jones Weekly chart showing all three of his Cycles that rule the Equity Market. The three cycles are all topping; topping just as they did in 2007. The Cycles are worse than in 2007-2008, the amount of downside in the last 4 months is the worst in 80 years; if this is the beginning, it can be a very bad time. There is a window of opportunity to sell into a bounce that appears to be imminent.

Dr. Nenner recommended to exit the Bond market for the last 2 years. The amount of money lost is tremendous; Q1 2022 was the worst Quarter for Bonds in 157 years. Interest rates are going much higher.

Charles Nenner sees a slight short term topping of Inflation and a near term moderation of Inflation, but sees Inflation for many years very similar as in the 80’s. Inflation will be a big problem moving forward. Natural gas and Crude oil are a big component.

Charles thinks there is nowhere to hide, but Cash is King at the moment. He believes Inflation will continue to be a major problem. European pension funds are in Bonds, many that are below zero. This is very difficult for Pension funds, it is not safe and no return. It will be very difficult for people to retire. It is not good to “Be in it for the long term!”

Dr. Nenner and Michael Douville have a significant discussion on the housing market. Are we in the process of peaking???

The Us Dollar is flirting with the 104 on the DXY, it is possible the US will get very strong and possibly go up to possible the low 120’s.

Looking at the Wheat chart, the prices are heading higher. Food prices are going to get much higher.

This Week in Prophecy: IDF & Gaza, Passover Re enactment, Israeli Gas, Russia & Donbas Region, Shanghai Port, Supply Chain Shock, Sri Lanka Bankrupt

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 18, 2022 by paulthepoke

This Week in Prophecy, April 18th, 2022:

Israel has launched military operations in the Gaza Strip in response to incoming missiles. This follows conflict on the Temple Mount between the Palestinians and Israeli security.

A Passover sacrifice re enactment was completed near the Western Wall outside of the Temple Mount.

The European Union is looking to rid itself of dependence of Russian energy. Israel looks to fill the void and sell natural gas to Europe.

Later, Russia calls out Israel for UN Security Council and General Assembly violations against the Palestinians.

Russia has launched a major military offensive in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine.

Shanghai is under a significant lockdown. Supply chains will be disrupted. This will likely lead to further inflation and shortages of goods.

Sri Lanka announces bankruptcy.

The Watchmen: Joseph’s Tomb, Israel’s Gov’t Fracture, Russia & Ukraine, Turkey Inflation, Lebanon Bankrupt, Shanghai Gridlock, Iran Nuclear Deal, Pakistan PM Out

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 11, 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 the destruction of Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus.

Mark 3:24-25 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.

Revelation 2:9 I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

Israel’s fractured coalition government is splintering. Coalition whip Idit Silman from Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s Yamina party announced she was joining the opposition led by Benjamin Netanyahu, allegedly.

Waves of terror from the Palestinians continue across Israel during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The Mosaic Law’s Spring Feast of Passover is set for later this week. Civil tension is growing.

Listen to the latest from the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Check out up to date situational maps from the region.

The ripple effects from the war are having economic implications. Turkey is experiencing historic inflation. Lebanon has declared bankruptcy.

China has locked down 25,000,000 in Shanghai due to a COVID 19 variant. People are starving. Supply chain disruptions are occurring in the world’s largest logistical port.

The chatter around the Iran Nuclear deal continues. What does the arrest of 2 men in Washington have to do with this? Where did they come from? Visas trace their activity back to Iran and Pakistan.

The Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, has received a vote of no confidence and has been ousted from power. Who is behind this? People are taking to the streets across Pakistan by the thousands protesting. Pakistan is home to the largest Shia population outside of Iran. Something smells fishy…

All of this and more from the Watchmen. Click on the link below for content and analysis.

The Watchmen: Russia/Ukraine Update, Iran in the News, Turkey Peace Negotiations, Saudi Oil Attacked, Israel’s Negev Summit, Abraham Accord Festival, Energy Inflation

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 28, 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 the current situation on the ground in Ukraine. How is Russian troop morale? Anecdotal evidence suggests things are not all roses.

Is this morale foreshadowing into Ezekiel 38:21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Lord GOD. Every man’s sword will be against his brother.

Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan looks to host peace negotiations between Ukraine and Russia in Turkey. Erdogan is looking to elevate himself on the world stage as a power broker.

As a hallmark of the end times scenario, deception is every where. In today’s world, we call it propaganda and spin. Everyone is trying to project a message regardless of the facts of the matter.

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia… Modern day Iran is keeping busy. The Iran Nuclear Deal negotiations continue. The Iranian proxies in Yemen, the Houthis, have launched an attack on the Saudi Arabian oil company Aramco. Iran marked the occasion by projecting pictures of Houthi leaders on the famed Azadi Tower in Tehran.

Israel is hosting the Negev Summit this week. Partners in the Abraham Accords and nations at peace with Israel are in attendance. US Secretary of State Blinken is at the meeting and touring the Middle East and North Africa.

The Abraham Accords Festival and Games kicks off this week as well. Soccer friendlies are the headliners.

Inflation continues to be an issue. Gas prices are going up in Israel. Germany is out of natural gas. Countries are lining up to take advantage of the situation.

Aggression continues to increase around the Middle East and Europe. The rest of the world stands by and watches. Ezekiel 38 speaks of a time when not one country will come to the defense of Israel. As it stands now, no one is coming to the defense of Ukraine. No one is coming to the defense of Saudi Arabia. The United States is stepping away from the Middle East…

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!

This Week in Prophecy: Russian Invasion Ripple Effects, Sweden, Finland, NATO, Syria, Inflation

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.

Dr. Charles Nenner and Michael Douville Discuss Risk in the Markets, February 2022

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

Ecclesiastes 3:1 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven…

February 21, 2022: I had the pleasure of speaking with Charles Nenner.

In the opening remarks, Dr. Nenner mentions the Equity Market is heading for a ‘Situation’ similar to Bonds. Both Markets are heading into turmoil.

Charles and I speak about Bitcoin, Interest rates, commodities, Housing, lumber, Bonds, Gold, the Dow, and the S&P.

Charts further indicate the Equity Market may be heading into trouble. Commodities appear to be in a very favorable trend. Dr. Nenner also mentions Inflation could be 12 or 13%.

Charles Nenner displayed a Sunspot Chart that correlated amazingly well with the Stock markets and the Economy; when there is intense Sunspot activity, Stocks and the Economy do very well. Unfortunately, we are heading into a timeframe of reduced Electromagnetic intensity.

Charles Nenner is often seen on Bloomberg, CNBC, and Fox News. He has been interviewed by Forbes and The Financial Times.

When Charles Nenner speaks, it pays to listen. Click on the video below for the details.

Russia and Ukraine, February 5, 2022… Czekmate’s Analysis & Commentary

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 5, 2022 by paulthepoke

Don’t know how often we can do this. Czekmate has a good deal of time on his hands today, but there are some key points in the past 24 hours:

– A distillation of reports from overhead imagery watchers on social media (a motley but worthy cottage industry) is showing early signs of potential dispersal from garrison on the Belarus front. TRANSLATION: Troops leaving base for field locations potentially in anticipation of launching operations.

– The Bloomberg News Headline stating that ‘Russia had invaded Ukraine, set against the backdrop of Ned Price’s inglorious/tiresome attempt to explain information relating to a planned Russian “false flag” propaganda incident, continues to occupy the discourse in Russian press.

– The last 24 hours also saw the arrival of SU-25 attack jets from the Russian far-east district, prompting concerns that it is a “huge red flag”.

Discussion: Czekmate generally agrees, red flag.

In Soviet days a sustained build up of 130,000 constitutes a noticeable exercise. As communicated to/by Paul Lehr, transfers between military/federal districts is a big deal. These are orders that come directly from the top. The recent surge of naval forces from the Baltic into the Mediterranean plainly creates logistical options for Russian forces on the Black Sea. Such moves also require direction from the general staff in Moscow.

Amid all of this, the Russian government has had every xenophobic excuse to continue to build and justify conflict in the mind of the Russian public, and that of Russophone separatists in eastern Ukraine. American and allied rhetoric continues a presumption of hostilities. The continual arming of Ukraine is making its way around Slavic social media at record speeds.

In short, the Russian information sphere is saturated with information that could justify action with the means to do so assembling rapidly. This is happening, in the context of allied armed intervention already being off the table. Geopolitically, Putin has the initiative.

Putin is further sending messages to the International business community that he can weather US/Allied economic responses. A recent publicized agreement between the Russian Federation and China involving a 30 year agreement on natural gas exports, will be settled in Euros. As Czekmate previously noted, this would help sideline the Eurozone economies, particularly the fragile German banking sector.

The intended Russian affect would likely be to pit ally against ally in formulating a sanctions package in response to a Ukrainian invasion. From the Russian vantage point it could also create increased pressure on the dollar amid a potentially hyper inflationary US domestic environment. Czekmate suggests that the prospect of a euro/dollar tension in the face of hostilities could reach further than Wall Street or Washington can/will contemplate.

Czekmate does not continence the idea that this was/is avoidable in the world of the post-elevation of Joe Biden to the White House. Discussion by the venerable outlets of Revolver News and Tucker Carlson are intelligent but misguided in one critical sense. The precipice was crossed sometime ago. Ukraine’s fate was largely sealed when the 2020 election went uncontested amid the January 6th ‘American Reichstag’ episode. As before, there are major hidden agendas in play here. Reflect on a quote frequently attributed to Aeschylus “Truth is the first casualty in war”.
