Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on March 5, 2018 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:4 And I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great host, all of them with buckler and shield, wielding swords.

The context of the verse… God is talking to Gog of Magog. Gog is the leader of what many scholars and historians believe to be modern day Russia. The verses state Magog has abundant, impressive military equipment. See the link below linking Magog to modern day Russia for detailed analysis.

March 2018: Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has announced to the world advances in nuclear weaponry. This was a campaign speech for the president. The election is less than 3 weeks away.

Putin claims the new missiles will not be detected by American technology. Putin showed off the missile capability in a video that appeared to be a nuclear attack on Florida. These are “invincible” cruise missiles. The cruise missile was described as a “low-flying, difficult-to-spot cruise missile, with a practically unlimited range and an unpredictable flight path, which can bypass lines of interception and is invincible in the face of all existing and future systems of both missile defense and air defense” by President Putin.

In a comment directed to the United States and Europe, Putin stated, “They need to take account of a new reality and understand … [this]… is not a bluff.”

“As we helped the brotherly Syrian people, we tested over 200 new types of weapons. Today our military-industrial complex made our army look in a way we can be proud of.”

And so the military build continues. History and fulfilled prophecy await…

Trend Update: Dennis Rodman, Diplomat to North Korea, September 2017

Posted in Culture, Fake News???, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on September 6, 2017 by paulthepoke

Ecclesiastes 1:9-11 What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Is there a thing of which it is said, “See, this is new”? It has been already in the ages before us. There is no remembrance of former things, nor will there be any remembrance of later things yet to be among those who come after.

Millions of people and their safety are potentially in the hands of Kim Jung Un, Dennis Rodman, and Donald Trump. Hard to believe we are going to forget this. But humanity does not learn from its mistakes.

Trend Update: Martial Law for Turkey??? Questions Surround Incirlik Air Base, January 2017

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 5, 2017 by paulthepoke

January 5, 2017: There seems to be growing concern and speculation regarding Turkey instituting Martial Law. Below is a tweet by Vocal Europe that has been removed in Turkey. Vocal Europe is a Brussels-based European Magazine.

Turkish government is reportedly to declare ‘Martial Law’ after ongoing ‘state of emergency’ according to @thevocaleurope.

This tweet has been removed in Turkey. But, it is available on Twitter outside of Turkey.

https://twitter.com/thevocaleurope/status/817024897897627648

In an article released on January 5, 2017, The American Enterprise Institute is raising the question of Martial Law in Turkey.

Turkey’s government for its part is denying the claim of initiating Martial Law.

Currently the top trending item on Twitter in Turkey is “close Incirlik”.

Presidential Spokesperson Ibrahim Kalın made the following statement, “Turkey has the right to shut down Incirlik Air Base. We always have this right. But as I said, first the conditions should be evaluated. We have the right of disposition as part of Turkey’s sovereign right.”

Incirlik Air Base allegedly is home to 50-90 nuclear weapons belonging to the United States. It is unclear if the weapons remain in Turkey or if the nukes have been moved to Romania. The Incirlik air base is home to United States and NATO air forces.

Turkey is not happy with the amount of United States support in the fight against ISIS or Daesh (Turkey’s reference). They want more air support in Operation Euphrates Shield. Turkey continues to send military convoys into Al Rai, Syria to assist with Euphrates Shield.

“What purpose are you serving if you do not provide aerial support against DEASH in the most sensitive operation for us?” Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu.

Turkey says they would not allow a terrorist group to form in the region.

President Erdogan wants Fetullah Gulen extradited from the United States. Gulen is thought to be the driving force of the attempted coup in the summer of 2016.

“The terrorist leader freely threatens Turkey, gives instructions, and sends messages from there. Unfortunately, we have not seen any support from the [Obama] administration about this. They tell us to give positive messages about anti-Americanism in Turkey, but I do not know what to say,” Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu.

Turkey states they are having a “confidence crisis” with the United States.

The economic background of all of this is the tanking Turkish Lira. Today the Lira hit an all-time low against the US dollar (3.6082 a dollar). The strong US dollar is crushing the Turkish economy driving the price of basic staples higher for locals in Turkey. The people are suffering from inflation.

https://www.aei.org/publication/is-turkey-headed-for-martial-law/

Scripture says Turkey is a player in the Ezekiel 38-39 scenario, the Gog and Magog war and invasion of Israel. There have been many twists and turns regarding Turkey since the summer of 2016.

For Scripture support indicating Meshech, Beth-Togarmah, Tubal, and Gomer being modern day Turkey, see the link below.

Trend Update: Incirlik Nukes On the Move? Iranian Troops Move West, August 2016

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 18, 2016 by paulthepoke

For Scripture linking Meshech, Tubal, Beth Togarmah, and Gomer to modern day Turkey, see the link below.

https://paulthepoke.com/2015/12/09/trend-update-russia-magogisrael-ezekiel-38-39-december-9-2015/

Conflicting reports are coming out of Turkey regarding US nuclear weapons at Incirlik Air Base. The air base has stored 50-90 nuclear weapons. Some outlets are reporting the nuclear weapons are safe and secure at the Turkey air base. Other news sources are reporting the nukes have been moved to Romania. There has been no official word out the United States military or the Pentagon. Romania is denying the movement of the nuclear weapons to their country. News sources include: Breitbart News, Haaretz, RT, Radio Free Europe, Debka just to mention a few. The US main stream press is silent.

For Scripture support indicating Persia and Elam are modern day Iran, see the link below.

Per the United States military, approximately 100,000 Iranian troops are now involved in Iraq. These are Shiite troops. It is believed these forces are targeting Mosul (Sunni Muslims). The Iranian troops are likely to have Russian air support from Hamadan Air Base in western Iran. Iranian troops and hardware are now moving out of Iran towards the west in the region.

The Bible and ancient historians point to the fact the land of Magog is modern day Russia. See attached post.

Vladimir Putin has moved military hardware, fighter jets, missile defenses, and 40,000 Russian troops to the Ukraine border. There appears to be multiple staging areas on the eastern border of Ukraine.

ISIS is getting squeezed from the east, north, and northeast. Speaking of ISIS, they have recently obtained chemical weapons.

All of this military activity and hardware is also getting closer to Israel. We know how this story ends. For complete details, see Ezekiel 38-39.

It would appear the balance of power is rapidly changing in the Middle East.

August 15, 2016: Russia acquired its first permanent air base in Syria. The Khmeimim Air Base is located near Latakia, Syria on the Mediterranean Sea. With this move, some believe the balance of power in the Mediterranean has shifted to Russia.

August 16, 2016: For the first time, Russia is launching air strikes from Iran. The Iranians have agreed to give Russia access to the Hamadan Air Base in western Iran. Russia is the first foreign country allowed access to the air base. This is being reported by news outlets around the world (The Guardian, RT, Reuters, Jerusalem Post, France 24, New York Times).

RT is reporting Cyprus has offered Russia use of its air base.

Moscow, August 16, 2016: A member of Russia’s upper house of parliament and a member of Russia’s Federation Council Defense and Security Committee indicated Turkey could allow Russia access to the Incirlik Air Base. This is the same air base that is home to United States and NATO air forces. The Incirlik Air Base is alleged to house at least 50 American nuclear weapons.

August 15, 2016: A report from the non-partisan Stimson Center to the US Congress was issued. Congress was briefed about the safety of the nuclear weapons at the Incirlik Air Base in Turkey.
