1 Chronicles 12:32a And of the sons of Issachar, having understanding of the times, to know what Israel should do.

There is an ongoing Housing Correction, a Global Slowdown and Turmoil in Iran, Russia and Turkey. Understanding these dynamics will help you navigate the future and not only survive but prosper.

Michael released this video about a month ago. Since then, oil has dropped to $53 per barrel. Housing starts continue to decline. The Dow Jones Industrial Index dropped close to 800 points at its last close.

Know the times we are living. Have an understanding. Have a plan. Know what to do.

Russia Increases Presence in Libya, October 2018

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on October 16, 2018 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet…

Genesis 10:6 The sons of Ham were Cush and Mizraim and Put and Canaan.

These are Noah’s grandchildren. The sons of Ham by and large settled in Africa.

Put or Phut means “a bow”; a nation and people of northern Africa; probably Libyans. –Strong’s Concordance. Consensus among researchers and scholars is Put is modern day Libya.

Historical Put or modern day Libya is a country that will join Russia and others in their future invasion of Israel.

October 2018: Russia is adding military hardware and troops into Libya. The build appears to have started in March 2017.

Russia has built military bases in the Mediterranean port cities of Benghazi and Tobruk.

Russian Kalibr anti-ship missiles and the S-300 missile defense system are reported to be in Libya. Russian military equipment and military vehicles bound for Libya have been intercepted by Tunisia earlier in the year.

Libya Oil

Libya has the largest oil reserves in Africa. As of now, production is approximately 700,000 barrels per day. With political stability and safety, production could increase to 2,500,000 barrels per day. President Vladimir Putin’s Russia clearly wants a piece of the growing pie.

There is money to be made in other areas of the Libyan economy. The country has a rebuild coming from all the destruction of civil war. Putin wants to re-establish a railway contract and military arms deals.

Libya is also the main gateway to Europe for African immigrants. Six billion pounds a year are made in trading humans across the Mediterranean Sea. Italy is less than 300 miles away. Vladimir Putin looks to control the flow of immigration as a political tool against Europe.

Dollar Rising, Michael Douville

Posted in Michael Douville with tags , , , , , , , , on June 21, 2018 by paulthepoke

Proverbs 20:10 Unequal weights and unequal measures are both alike an abomination to the LORD.

Micah 6:10-11 Can I forget any longer the treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked, and the scant measure that is accursed? Shall I acquit the man with wicked scales and with a bag of deceitful weights?

Michael

All currencies are not created equal. Values of currencies change. God is not a fan of currency manipulation. Imagine that, humanity outside of God’s economic laws…

The end result of currency changes can be dramatic. Michael explains the consequences of a rising dollar and what it means to global economics.

Understand the times we are in. Currently, soft commodities (grains such as barley and wheat) are relatively cheap. These times will not last forever. Make plans now while goods are inexpensive. Understand where we are going. Have a plan.

The dollar is rising causing Systemically Important Financial (SIFI) to Plummet.

Trend Update: Israel & Egypt Ink Gas Deal, February 2018

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 22, 2018 by paulthepoke

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?’

See the video link below for additional analysis and geography.

Oil and natural gas will be serious bait for the Russian invasion of Israel. At some point in the future, Russia and its allies will invade Israel for their “great spoil”.

For details linking modern day Russia to ancient Magog. See the link below.

https://godinanutshell.com/2017/08/04/ezekiel-38-who-is-magog/

 

Full disclosure, the author of this article is a shareholder in Zion Oil & Gas (ZN); listed on NASDAQ Exchange.

February 14, 2018: Zion Oil & Gas has discovered oil and natural gas in the Megiddo-Jezreel Valley.

“I am ecstatic to see clear evidence of hydrocarbons (oil and gas) in the deeper portion of our Megiddo-Jezreel #1 well, a project that we have been working on for years. However, at this time we cannot comment on the commerciality or ability to successfully produce the well. We ask that our shareholders continue to pray for safe and successful drilling, logging, and testing operations, and for God’s wisdom for management as we make key decisions in the following days and weeks. Please be patient. We will provide further updates after we have adequate time to properly evaluate the logs and finalize our well testing program following the recent events.” Zion’s CEO, Victor G. Carrillo

This is the location John discusses at the outset of the bowl judgments in Revelation.

Revelation 16:16 And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

 

February 19, 2018: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel announces a $15 billion deal to export natural gas to Egypt. See the link below for a video statement from the Prime Minister.

Noble Energy and Delek Drilling are the benefactors of the deal. They will be selling natural gas to Dolphinus Holdings of Egypt. The natural gas is coming from the Leviathan and Tamar natural gas fields off the coast of Israel in the Mediterranean Sea. 64 billion cubic meters of natural gas are expected to be exported over 10 years.

Egypt has the ability to liquefy the natural gas and transport around the world. Those liquefication plants are owned by Royal Dutch Shell. Egypt announced the deal to their public as a nameless partner.

Security of pipelines and distribution will be a factor. Historically, ISIS has vandalized pipelines in the region of the Sinai Desert.

Trend Update: Iraqi Troops Moving On Kurds, October 2017

Posted in Iraq/Babylon/Shinar, Kurds/Medes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 15, 2017 by paulthepoke

Genesis 11:1-2, Now the whole earth had one language and the same words. And as people migrated from the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. 

Genesis 11:9a Therefore its name was called Babel

This area in Genesis 11 was established around 2,100 BC. Shinar is another name for Babylon.

Click on video link below for additional geography and analysis.

Ancient Babylon is the home and setting to the writings of the prophet Daniel. Babylon under the leadership of King Nebuchadnezzar invaded Jerusalem. Jewish captives were taken and exported to Babylon in 606 BC.

Daniel 1:2b …And he (Nebuchadnezzar) brought them to the land of Shinar

Daniel was a member of the party of people taken from Jerusalem.

Daniel 1:6 Among these were Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah of the tribe of Judah.

The prophet Daniel served the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar as a young man. Later in his life as an older man, Daniel would serve the Medo-Persian Empire under King Darius the Mede and King Cyrus the Persian.

Daniel 6:28 So this Daniel prospered during the reign of Darius and the reign of Cyrus the Persian.

Media or the Medes were located north of ancient Babylon. Ancient Media is consistent with the modern day group of people called the Kurds.

This is modern day, 21st century Iraq. It appears the ancient rivalry of the Babylonians (Iraq) and the Medes (Kurdistan) is on the verge of being reignited. The Kurds recently voted to become an independent nation, Kurdistan. None of their Middle East neighbors approve of the will of the Kurdish people. Turkey, Iran, and Iraq consider the Kurds terrorists.

The issue is oil. The Kurds gained control of the oil fields as a result of ISIS invading the area. Kurdish reserves are estimated to be at 45 billion barrels of oil. The Kurds can move approximately 700,000 barrels per day. The oil and gas pipelines run through primarily Kurdish territory on their way to the open market.Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan has threatened to close off the flow of Kurdish oil. “Who are they going to sell the oil to? If we close the valve, their income is gone too.”

Turkey and Iraq have been completing joint military exercises since the Kurds voted for their independence. President Erdogan is also quoted as saying, “We may arrive one night, suddenly.”

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-09-25/turkey-warns-iraq-kurds-it-can-close-the-valves-on-oil-exports

October 13, 2014: Iraqi troops are on the move towards Kirkuk. The Iraqi government wants to retake control of the oil fields currently managed by the Kurds. Iraq has deployed troops about 10 km (6 miles) south of Kirkuk. The Iraqi Counter-Terrorism Squad is on location. And the 9th Armored Division of the Iraqi Army is nearby in Tazza.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi does not want to engage the Kurds, but “federal authority has to be imposed in Kirkuk and the disputed areas.”

For their part, the Kurds are sending thousands of troops for reinforcement to Kirkuk.

“We call on all components of the Kurdish people…to prepare fully to respond to those who want war and battle, and to support the Peshmerga forces by all means in order to save the cities of Kurdistan. We want to avoid our cities becoming like Mosul, Anbar and other Iraqi cities which have been afflicted by mass murder, devastation, and destruction.” -Nejervan Barzani, Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG)

http://www.arabnews.com/node/1177221/middle-east

Here is a thought. Jeremiah 51 promises the future destruction of Babylon. Are we entering this time and event?

Jeremiah 51:28-29 Prepare the nations for war against her, the kings of the Medes, with their governors and deputies, and every land under their dominion. The land trembles and writhes in pain, for the LORD’s purposes against Babylon stand, to make the land of Babylon a desolation, without inhabitant.

Trend Update: Iran Instead of ISIS, August 2017

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 13, 2017 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet…

August 13, 2017: Recent history is repeating itself again. When one set of terrorists is eliminated, another set of issues will take its place. ISIS is gradually being removed from the current Middle East scenario.

The head of Israel’s Intelligence Agency, Mossad, indicated Iran is taking the territories vacated by ISIS. Mossad is lead by Yossi Cohen. Iran is expanding by proxy in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Yemen. Shia Muslims are replacing Sunni Muslims.

Israel along with President Trump has expressed concern regarding Iranian compliance of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). The JCPOA is the nuclear deal President Obama signed with the Iranians. Iran maintains their nuclear program is for peaceful purposes. Iran also states they are not developing ballistic missiles that carry nuclear weapons.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel has made it clear. Israel does not follow other international agreements when it comes to the security of the nation.

“Israel will continue to work with determination and in a variety of ways to protect itself from these threats,” stated Netanyahu.

Prime Minister Netanyahu is looking to go to war without approval of the full cabinet. The law comes up for vote before the Knesset in October. The Prime Minister is not confirming or denying the possibility.

Annual Army Day Military ParadeFor its part, Iranian legislators recently passed a spending bill to increase funding to the nation’s missile program. Some lawmakers chanted “Death to America” with the passing of the program. $260 million was committed to the missile program and the Quds Force. The Quds Force is a military unit deployed in Syria and Iraq.

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.

Significant oil finds are occurring in the Golan Heights of Israel “with the potential of billions of barrels”. The world sees this territory as occupied Syria. If that is not intriguing enough, another significant find is reported to be in valley of Meggido-Jezreel. This is also known as…

Revelation 16:16 And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

There are massive natural gas reserves off the coast of Israel in the Mediterranean Sea. They are the Leviathan and Tamar fields.

china unChinese peacekeeping troops are more acceptable to Israel because they are not Arab. Israel has been agreeable to Chinese troops to Lebanon in the past. Israel sees Asians as more impartial.

China is looking to join the United Nations peace keeping forces in the Golan Heights. The peacekeeping branch of the UN is called the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF).

The United States is withdrawing from the Middle East. End time’s players are filling the vacuum.

Trend Update: Wine & Oil Ready for Temple, January 2017

Posted in Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 26, 2017 by paulthepoke

Exodus 29:38, 40 “Now this is what you shall offer on the altar: two one year old lambs each day, continuously… and there shall be one-tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with one-fourth of a hin of beaten oil, and one-fourth of a hin of wine for a drink offering with one lamb.”

January 2017: Thirty bottles of wine have been delivered to the Sanhedrin. This is another example that shows the Sanhedrin is gearing up for Temple service. They believe the readiness and availability of Temple wine is a forerunner to the arrival of the Messiah.

The procedures for kosher wine are the most strident of any food or beverage. The entire process from the grapes being grown on the ground, to the harvest, to the crushing of grapes, to bottling wine must be completed by Sabbath observant Jews. This is a very strict process.

A wine libation and oil are required for the daily sacrifice. Scripture says “a quarter hin” is needed. This amounts to about one quart. One hin is essentially equal to one gallon. The wine is poured on the altar.

Wine libations and sacrifices were part of other celebrations such as the Sabbath and the Passover. If one has participated in a Passover Seder, recall four cups of wine are utilized in the service.

Wine plays a role in Jewish cultural events and celebrations such as circumcisions and weddings. Jesus turned water into wine at the wedding in Cana. Christ knew how to throw a party with over 120 gallons of wine.

John 2:9-10 When the headwaiter tasted the water which had become wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the headwaiter called the bridegroom and said to him, “Every man serves the good wine first, and when the people have drunk freely, then he serves the poorer wine; but you have kept the good wine until now.”

https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/82239/rare-temple-quality-wine-anticipates-messiah-prophecy-paves-way-third-temple/#l3iBZTXtrMdGiLxr.99

 

Oil for the Temple Menorah is now available. Harvesting and processing standards of olives are now in place thanks to the Sanhedrin.

Exodus 27:20 “You shall charge the sons of Israel, that they bring you clear oil of beaten olives for the light, to make a lamp burn continually.”

The key word in the verse above is “beaten”. The process is done completely by hand. Machines and metal implements are not allowed. The olives are pounded with rubber and wooden mallets. Crushing the olive is not allowed.

“Since pressing the olives is not permitted for this special olive oil, the yield is very low. Once the menorah oil was produced, the remaining olives were made into 700 tins of this unique oil which are now available to the public,” stated Rabbi Shmuel Veffer, owner of Galilee Green which produced the oil.

Leviticus 2:4 “Now when you bring an offering of a grain offering baked in an oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mixed with oil, or unleavened wafers spread with oil.”

“This oil was specially harvested through hand-picking of the olives that were used to make the menorah oil for the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, which we all pray will be rebuilt very soon,” Rabbi Veffer.
