Israel Joins the East Mediterranean Gas Forum, September 2020

September 22, 2020: Today, Israel has become a member of the East Mediterranean Gas Forum (EMGF). The virtual conference was hosted in Cairo, Egypt. Current members include Egypt, Jordan, Greece, Cyprus, Italy and the Palestinian Authority. The goal of the group is to supply Europe with 10% of its natural gas needs.

Of note, France wants to be a member of the forum. The European Union and the United States are “observers”.

“…contribute to advancing regional stability and prosperity, creating an environment of trust, prosperity, stability and neighborly relations through regional energy cooperation…” -EMGF

The EastMed Pipeline is estimated to cost $8 billion and will deliver up to 12 billion cubic meters of gas annually to Europe. The EastMed will be the deepest under sea pipeline. The line is estimated to be 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers) long.

Israel discovered natural gas off their coast in the Mediterranean in October 2015. There is enough gas for Israel to be energy independent and a significant exporter to western Europe. These gas fields are set to be ready for production in 2021.

Ezekiel 38:12 …to seize spoil and carry off plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places that are now inhabited, and the people who were gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell at the center of the earth.

Currently, Russia is the largest exporter of natural gas to Europe.

These are the intentions of Gog, the leader of Magog (Russia). The Russians, along with the Turks and Iranians are planning to invade. Their motivation is economic. They want to steal natural resources from Israel.

Turkey has not been included the East Mediterranean Gas Forum. Of course the Turks will join forces with the Russians. These are the countries who stand to lose out economically because of the EMGF.

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?’

Historically, per Strong’s Concordance and NET Bible, Raamah settled in the southwest of the Arabian Peninsula. Sheba settled in the southern Arabian Peninsula. Dedan settled in the northern Arabian Peninsula. Dedan was an ancient capital of Saudi Arabia. It is modern day Al Ula in northwest Saudi Arabia. These areas make up what is modern day Saudi Arabia.

In light of recent Middle East peace developments and Biblical prophecy, don’t be surprised if Saudi Arabia has an agreement for normalized relations with Israel.

Today, Israel wishes Saudi Arabia congratulations on their 90th national year as a country. Israel expresses a future “with goodness and blessing in light of security, safety and prosperity, with our wishes for an atmosphere of peace, cooperation and good neighborliness.”

According to Ezekiel’s prophecy, it would appear modern day Saudi Arabia along with at least Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Jordan will protest the potential Russian invasion. Prophecy seems to indicate there will be more countries in this coalition with Israel.

Psalm 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May they be secure who love you!

Washington, D.C., September 15, 2020: United States President Donald Trump hosted Bahrain Foreign Minister Abdullatif al-Zayani, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and the United Arab Emirates’ Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan for the signing of the Abraham Accords at the White House.

The Abraham Accords were signed in Hebrew, Arabic, and English.

  • “This day is a pivot of history. It heralds a new dawn of peace,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel said.
  • “Peace requires courage, and shaping the future requires knowledge,” Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates said. “We have come today to tell the world that this is our approach.”
  • “Today is a truly historic occasion—a moment of hope and opportunity for all the peoples of the Middle East,” Abdullatif bin Rashid Al-Zayani of Bahrain said.
  • “The people of the Middle East will no longer allow hatred of Israel to be fomented as an excuse for radicalism or extremism. After decades of division and conflict, we mark the dawn of a new Middle East,” President Trump said.

Prior to the signing ceremony, President Trump commented on the momentum of peace in the Middle East.

“We’re very far down the road with about five additional countries… Frankly, I think we could have had them here today. We’ll have at least five or six countries coming along very quickly… They want to see peace. They’ve been fighting for a long time… They’re warring countries but they’re tired of fighting. You’re going to see a lot of very great activity. It’s going to be peace in the Middle East. Most of the countries… in the Middle East want to sign this deal.”

Trump later went on to say up to nine (9) countries look to normalize relations with Israel.

Bahrain Joins the Circle of Peace, September 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on September 11, 2020 by paulthepoke

Washington, D.C., September 11, 2020: United States President Donald Trump has announced a historic achievement in Middle East Peace between Israel and Bahrain. The two countries have agreed to full diplomatic relations.

Next Tuesday, September 15, President Trump will be hosting leaders from Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain. They will meet and sign accords of peace in Washington, D.C.

Back in June 2019, Bahrain was the host country for the White House “Peace for Prosperity” economic conference. Leaders from around the Middle East and Israel were in attendance.

President Trump took to Twitter for the announcement. Below is the official statement coming from the United States, Israel, and Bahrain.

Of note, Trump Senior Advisor Jared Kushner received a lot of ink from the Jerusalem Post in their article. Here are some quotes from Kushner’s press conference.

“There’s a new momentum and new hopefulness in the Middle East. The agreement that we made with the United Arab Emirates and Israel was even more popular than we expected, which is why this next agreement came so quickly. We were not sure what the reaction would be, but it’s been overwhelmingly positive. And more and more countries are rushing to try to figure out how they can do good things for their citizens and create a paradigm for a much more peaceful and prosperous future.”

“The leaders in the region recognize that the approach that’s been taken in the past hasn’t worked and they realize that there are people want to see a more vibrant and exciting future. I do believe that it’s an inevitability that all countries in the Middle East will normalize relations with Israel. It’s a very hard thing. I don’t know the timing on it, but I think people want to see the Middle East move forward. They want to seize opportunity.”

“I think that this will help reduce tension in the Muslim world and allow people to separate the Palestinian issue from their own national interests, from their foreign policy, which should be focused on their domestic priorities. And so I think you’re going to continue to see momentum.” -Presidential Senior Adviser, Jared Kushner

https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/trump-expected-to-announce-historic-bahrain-israel-normalization-agreement-641961

The Palestinians have denounced the Israel/Bahrain peace plan. They called it a “stab in the back”.

Iran now has two countries across the Persian Gulf who are close friends with Israel.

Daniel 9:27 And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.

For the record, it is my position President Donald Trump is not the antichrist. Trump is not an internationally loved and respected figure. Too many people want him completely removed from the equation.

It seems to be plausible conjecture we are in the process of gathering “many” to confirm “a strong covenant” in the future. It would appear “he” is not on the scene just yet.

At this time, I don’t think Kushner is the antichrist either. See my previous post below.

More Peace on the Horizon, September 2020

United Arab Emirates, September 1, 2020: White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner was being interviewed on UAE WAM News. Kushner was asked if all 22 Arab League states would eventually recognize Israel. His answer, “100%”.

List and link to 22 Arab League States. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arab_League#Membership

Below are quotes from Kushner during the interview.

“I believe that it is logical for them to do it and I believe it is the right thing to do over time. I think thanks to the UAE leadership there will be a much bigger coalition. (There will be) what I call ‘a vocal majority’ that will be in favor of normalizing. I think the vocal minority who have been against it will be more and more isolated in the region.”

“Obviously anything could happen, but the reality is that a lot of people are envious of the move that the United Arab Emirates has made. We don’t solve problems by not talking to each other. So, normalizing relations and allowing people-to-people and business exchanges will only make the Middle East stronger and a more stable place.”

Arab countries continue to need promises that Israel will not expand into the West Bank. By all accounts, Israel has indicated they will not develop the region.

“We cannot speculate on future Israeli actions. We have assurances from the US on this, and through our trilateral dialogue,” Jamal al-Musharakh, Director of the Emirati Foreign Ministry’s Policy Planning Department.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/kushner-vocal-minority-against-uae-normalization-will-become-more-isolated/

Kushner was not done. Multiple news agencies are reporting the he and the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman conducted meetings.

Kushner is also reported to be making trips to multiple Arab states during his trip to the region.

There are many who think Jared Kushner is the antichrist. For now, I do not…

2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him, we ask you, brothers, not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. 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. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming. The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

  1. The Day of the Lord is not here. Currently (September 2020), we are not in the tribulation.
  2. …so that he takes his seat in the temple of God… Currently, there is no temple.
  3. …proclaiming himself to be God. Jared Kushner is not claiming to be God.
  4. what is restraining him nowOnly he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. Currently, the Holy Spirit remains on earth indwelled in believers of Jesus Christ, the church. When the church is snatched away or raptured…
  5. And then the lawless one will be revealed. It is simply not time.
  6. The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception… Jared Kushner is not performing miracles.

But, Jared Kushner is making headlines. So I will continue to report because this is looming.

Daniel 9:27 And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.

1 Thessalonians 5:3 While people are saying, “Peace and security,” destruction will come upon them suddenly, like labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

Netanyahu: “Peace Favors Israel.” August 2020

August 30, 2020, Jerusalem: It would be a pleasure to host all of you in Jerusalem on any day, but it’s a special pleasure to do so today, because tomorrow you will be on the first-ever Israeli commercial flight to the UAE, together with a high-level Israeli delegation. 

The day will come, and it won’t be far away, when we will ask: How could it have been any other way? Because today’s breakthroughs will become tomorrow’s norms. It will pave the way for other countries to normalize their ties with Israel. -Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

And we are trending towards Gabriel’s message to Daniel…

Sanhedrin Requests To Blow Shofar on Temple Mount for Rosh Hashanah/Yom Teruah, 5781/2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Fall Feasts, Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Temple with tags , , , , , , , on August 24, 2020 by paulthepoke

Numbers 10:10 On the day of your gladness also, and at your appointed feasts and at the beginnings of your months, you shall blow the trumpets over your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings. They shall be a reminder of you before your God: I am the LORD your God.”

For the first time since the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD, the Sanhedrin wants to blow the shofar on the Temple Mount to bring in the secular Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah.

This holiday has many names. It is called the Feast of Trumpets by Christians. It is recognized as the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. In Judaism, it is called Yom Teruah which means the “Day of Blowing”.

The holiday is set to commence on the Gregorian date at sunset Friday, September 18, 2020 pending the confirmation of the new moon by two witnesses. On a Hebrew calendar, this would initiate the month of Tishri and start the year 5781.

https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/157145/sanhedrin-petitions-to-govt-to-blow-shofar-on-temple-mount-for-first-time-since-temple-destruction by Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz

Here are some quotes from the article from leading rabbis with the Sanhedrin.

“Jews are only permitted to enter the Temple Mount five days a week: Sunday to Thursday. This year, the first day of Rosh Hashanna is on Saturday, the Sabbath. According to Jewish law, it is forbidden to blow the shofar on the Sabbath except for on the Temple Mount. So we submitted a request to permit a group of Jews to do so; to blow the shofar on the Temple Mount on the first day of Rosh Hashana,” Aviad Vosoli, Land of Israel Organization.

Vosoli went on to further comment…

“This is not a legal issue. The law mandates that we are permitted to do this. Our request is that the police be instructed to permit this religious ritual to take place.”

The following quotes are from Rabbi Hillel Weiss, Sanhedrin Spokesman and Chairman of Organization of 70 Nations.

“Our demand now is to apply the one true sovereignty onto Zion. (To) call out to the King of kings with the eternal voice of the shofar, to spread His Kingdom to every creature. We are calling on the current Israeli government to take their role in manifesting the universal desire for redemption, which is the real mandate of the State of Israel. It is our role to enable all of the nations to pray before HaShem (God, literally ‘the name’) with one voice, as we did at Mount Sinai, like we did after creation like we are destined to do again in the end-of-days when the dead will be resurrected, the day of universal and true freedom.”

“Blowing of the shofar on the Temple Mount of Rosh Hashanna is not a simple ritual as it is done in synagogues around the world. This is not just for the Jews who are there to hear it. This is a shofar call to all the nations of the world. Now, more than ever before, we are crying out to Hashem to bless us with life, peace, and an end to plagues. Every leader in the world who cares and who sees himself as a representative of one of the 70 nations should call on Netanyahu to permit this to take place.”

Rabbi Weiss closed with the following comment…

“Blowing the shofar that is specific to the Temple is a cry out to God to prevent the division of His land and the loss of His house. This shofar will topple anyone who is set on dividing God’s land and opposing the establishment of a House of Prayer for All Nations in Jerusalem, just as the sound of the shofar toppled the walls that stood between the Jews and entering the Promised Land.”

Teshuvah 5780/2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Teshuvah/Repent with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 19, 2020 by paulthepoke

The Hebrew month of Elul initiates a 40 day period called Teshuvah. This is the Hebrew word for repent.

The point of the season is to prepare for the Jewish New Year/Rosh Hashanah/Yom Teruah and the Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur. It is a time to turn toward God. People are called to turn away from their sin, repent, and change course. Teshuvah is a time of inward reflection and sincere self-assessment. The goal is a change in lifestyle away from sin and turn to obedience in God’s word. The 40 day period starts on Elul 1 and ends on Tishri 10, Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement.

On a Gregorian calendar in the year 2020, Teshuvah will possibly initiate at sunset on Friday, August 21 if the sighting of the new moon is confirmed by two witnesses. In the purest sense, determining Elul 1 and the start of a month is not a mathematical function. The issue is a legal matter of truthful verification as far as God is concerned.

Deuteronomy 19:15 A single witness shall not rise up against a man on account of any iniquity or any sin which he has committed; on the evidence of two or three witnesses a matter shall be confirmed.

It is Jewish custom to blow a shofar (ram’s horn) one time every day during the season of Teshuvah. The trumpet is blown every day except Shabbat or the Sabbath (Saturday for us in western culture) and the last day of the month of Elul. The trumpet is blown after the morning service. The shofar is blown frequently…

The blowing of the shofar started with Moses and the Israelites at Mount Sinai. The blowing of the shofar is associated with God descending to Mount Sinai and the gathering of nation Israel. This is where Moses is called to ascend the mountain to meet God (Exodus 19:13-19). This is when and where Israel received the law.

The blowing of a shofar signaled many things in Biblical times. The shofar blast was a call to war and the prospect of danger. 

Joel 2:1 Blow a trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming; surely it is near…

The shofar was a way to call soldiers. The trumpet preceded the Ark of the Covenant. 

2 Samuel 6:15 So David and all the house of Israel were bringing up the ark of the LORD with shouting and the sound of the trumpet.

The trumpet blast signified the beginning of the month (Numbers 10:10). Psalm 81:3-4 Blow the trumpet at the new moon, at the full moon, on our feast day. For it is a statute for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob. Some form of a trumpet blast(s) is used at Rosh Hashanah/Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement.

A trumpet blast also signals the beginning of Jubilee (Leviticus 25).

~

One of the customs of Elul is to visit a cemetery. This is quite interesting in light of the Jewish belief that the resurrection of the dead will occur during the period of Teshuvah. Specifically, the resurrection of the dead is to occur on the new moon holiday of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah/Yom Teruah. Christians refer to Rosh Hashanah as the Feast of Trumpets.

Orthodox Jews do not believe in Jesus Christ let alone the New Testament. Apostle Paul’s letter to the Corinthians would confirm their tradition. 

1 Corinthians 15:52b at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

Israel and United Arab Emirates Reach Peace Deal, August 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on August 13, 2020 by paulthepoke

August 13, 2020: Israel and the United Arab Emirates have signed a historic peace treaty today. The deal is known as the Abraham Accord.

The United Arab Emirates is lead by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Israel was represented by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. United States President Donald Trump announced the “Historic Peace Agreement”.

This treaty marks the third peace agreement with Israel since 1948. Israel has previously signed peace accords with Egypt (March 1979) and Jordan (July 1994).

Relations between the two countries are to be normalized in diplomacy, trade, and regional security. Under the plan, Israel has agreed to stop annexation of Palestinian territories.

President Trump is hopeful there will be more peace deals to come with Israel and other Arab countries.

White House advisor Jared Kushner indicated the agreement is the result of a year and a half of discussions.

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.

Red Heifer Update: And There Were Two, June 2020/Tammuz 5780

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Temple with tags , , , , , , on June 29, 2020 by paulthepoke

The Temple Institute has not one but two red heifer candidates. Before the third Temple will be built, a red heifer must be burned for purification. The third Temple is prophetic as promised by the prophets and Jesus Himself. We are getting closer, a sign of the times…

For articles dating back to 2014… https://paulthepoke.com/?s=red+heifer

The following is from the Temple Institute YouTube Channel.

“HaShem spoke to Moshe and Aharon, saying: This is the statute of the Torah which HaShem commanded, saying, Speak to the children of Israel and have them take for you a perfectly red unblemished cow, upon which no yoke was laid.”

Commentary below is from The Temple Institute.

Thus we are taught in Numbers 19 the laws of the red heifer, whose ashes when prepared properly by Temple priests can achieve for Israel the highest level of biblical purity attainable.

Equipped with the ashes of the red heifer the entire nation of Israel, men, women and children will be able to participate in the three pilgrimage festivals, and enter into the inner courtyards of the Holy Temple, fulfilling the Torah commandment to see and be seen by G-d three times a year, as we read in…

Deuteronomy 16:16: “Three times in the year, every one of your males shall appear before HaShem, your G-d, in the place He will choose: on the Festival of Matzot and on the Festival of Weeks, and on the Festival of Sukkot, and he shall not appear before the HaShem empty-handed.”

Five years ago the Temple Institute began its Raise a Red Heifer in Israel project. Just under two years ago we announced the birth of our first red heifer candidates, two perfectly red heifers, eligible for the historic role of being THE red heifer who returns to Israel, after 2000 years, the ability to achieve the highest level of Torah purity.

Since their birth, the rabbinic experts of the Temple Institute have been keeping a close watch on these heifers, for any non-red hair that a heifer sprouts, or any minor injury that the heifer sustains will disqualify it from being a kosher red heifer.

This past week, (June, 2020), we visited our two most advanced red heifers and filmed them. In the upcoming weeks they will receive another visit from the Temple Institute’s experts for yet another close inspection. Should either or both of these red heifers remain eligible candidates, we will soon be ready to advance toward the stage of actually preparing the ashes.

From the footage we are looking at our two heifers seem perfectly red, but clearly they need to be cleaned up and properly inspected to truly determine their status.

How wonderful to imagine that these two innocent, unsuspecting creatures, could, in the very near future, advance Israel and the world to the next stage of the redemption and the building of the Holy Temple.
