President Biden’s Middle East Trip… Czekmate

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 17, 2022 by paulthepoke

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

Ezekiel’s Persia is modern day Iran…

The bottom line readout of the Biden trip to Israel points to the division in the administration on Near East policy. Two diverging paths thrown together into a foreign policy salad was pointed out to me in Hebrew. I waited a while to see if the Israelis and conservative American Jews could come to one mind on what the ‘upshot’ was. I needed an online translation but here it is, and it is brilliantly succinct:

“The problematic developments after Biden’s visit: The United States seeks to integrate the Palestinians into the forums of the Abraham Accords as well as Jordan. In addition, a number of Arab countries are on the way to normalization with Iran, including the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, and Egypt.”

Czekmate interpretation — the region is prepared to go it alone in such confusion out of America.

This is a few days old but was mostly underplayed in the press. That is likely owed to the Biden trip to Israel and the respect for the US from the government in Jerusalem. I will not speak to the veracity of the site, other than to say some Czekmate friends seem to think that the folks behind do have a pretty good grip on what they report on.

For the reach of the Israeli security services, what they lack in breadth they make up for in precision. In other words, they do not have massive amounts of agents to be able to put against a large problem in their far abroad. Accordingly, what resources they do have do exhaustive homework on the back end of their intelligence apparatus. From that homework they focus on very narrow efforts pointed at key nodes and critical paths of the problem set.

This is acutely the case in a culturally less accessible, place far from home such as Iran. The internal security conditions of a place like Iran makes it harder still. Thus the ability to place agents who blend in, leaves fewer personnel to be able to draw from. Frequently, assets recruited while abroad (regime traitors) alongside allied agents compose any operation personnel in such a place as Iran.

Making such operations harder still is that the secrecy surrounding a nuclear program is forbidding. Further, in order to gain the most amount of value per penetration/operation requires an agent to have a rare set of expertise usually gained over years of deep study. Hence the need to have a robust analytic structure in Israel itself that informs the operations to be undertaken. You can bet that individuals with such expertise and education would remain under a sharp eye in a paranoid regime like Iran.

Ah, but that paranoia is warranted in view of the number casualties the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp have been absorbing in recent months on their own soil. It has undermined the IRGC standing within the regime itself, and has doubtless exacerbated any acrimony between the Iranian armed forces and the IRGC. Such would have been the intent behind any effort were it a part of an intelligence operational effort.

In short, create such a blow to the key personalities of the Iranian power projecting security establishment (Missiles, drones and nukes) that disproportional resources have to be expended at home, thus slowing the entire maturation to a militarily viable nuclear weapon.

Up to this point, the Israeli emphasis has been to slow/stop that process, and it has been the central point of the nuclear negotiations bandied about on TV and in print so frequently. This cycle is so that in order to build a working “nuclear bomb” the radioactive material must be very highly refined and in large quantities to achieve a nuclear blast. This article lays down an indication that the Israelis are now compelled to reorient this apparatus away from attempting to disrupt the nuclear fuel generation cycle. They must now focus this apparatus to the next phase in an Iranian bomb, the capability of Iran to use one (as a viable weapon of war) as the new priority.

This is consistent with the news (reported here) surrounding recent deaths of Iranian personnel in their weapons research infrastructure. This is the new emphasis on their delicate and precise operations behind the enemy lines of the Iranian homeland. The so-called “Break-out” time (The time it takes to have enough nuclear material for a viable working bomb) being at zero, suggests that disrupting the nuclear enrichment cycle is an exhausted option for stymieing the Iranian bomb.

It is also a major step closer to a military strike.

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.

Ancient Quarry for 2nd Temple? An archeological dig in Jerusalem has discovered a quarry that may have provided stones for the Second Temple.

Israel is opposed to Biden’s Plan to Divide Jerusalem. The United States wants to reopen an office for the Palestinians in Jerusalem effectively dividing the Israeli capital and ultimately the land.

Orwell’s Australia has resulted in a massive loss of freedom for the Australian people. A trial app for smart phones is being presented in the name of health and safety.

China is banning effeminate men from TV. Children are being banned from online video games during school days and their electronic activity is being limited on the weekends.

Russia and Turkey continue their military build up with the potential sale of a second round of the S-400 missile defense system to the Turks.

Turkey unveils the production of sophisticated drones to promote peace of course.

These questions and more are discussed and answered on This Week in Prophecy.

This Week in Prophecy

What do the Bible and the prophets have to say about the modern day Gaza Strip? Who were these people in the context of the Bible?

Gaza, the Philistines, and the Cherethites are synonymous.

The prophets have communicated and God has pronounced judgment on the modern day Gaza Strip. See what the prophets have to say.

Hamas and the Palestinians and Israel have announced a cease fire after 12 days.

Where does President Joe Biden stand on the issue? The Democrat Party is divided on the issue. Not all fall in line with President Biden when it comes to Israel.

This and much more on This Week in Prophecy.

Putin & Erdogan Talk “Deterrent” About Israel As Israeli/Palestinian Conflict Broadens

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gaza Strip/Philistia, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 12, 2021 by paulthepoke

May 12, 2021: Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin shared a phone call today.

President Erdogan has recommended “the international community to give Israel a strong and deterrent lesson”. Erdogan also called on the United Nations Security Council to give Israel “determined and clear messages”.

Erdogan also recommended an international force to be dispatched to protect the Palestinian people.

https://www.israelhayom.com/2021/05/12/turkish-leader-to-putin-israel-needs-strong-deterrent-lesson/

Is the current military conflict we are watching a catalyst that brings Ezekiel’s prophecy into focus.

Russia will be joined by several countries in their future invasion of Israel (Ezekiel 38-39). One of those countries is modern day Turkey. At some point in the future, Russia is prophesied to invade Israel. The Bible says Russia and Turkey are going to join forces.

President Joe Biden finally has a public appearance on the issue. His statement was issued by Twitter and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

One can only wonder how the world views President Biden. Are rogue states and terrorist organizations emboldened to act by perceived weakness? Will this perception allow for Russia and allies to coalesce in strength and power against Israel?

The Hamas military wing Al-Qassam Brigades has launched 15 missiles at the Dimona Nuclear Facility in southern Israel. The facility was not hit. This will not be received well with Israeli leadership.

https://www.rt.com/news/523598-hamas-rockets-israel-dimona-nuclear/

Hamas vows to fire 100 times more rockets if Israeli forces do not leave the Temple Mount.

There are rumblings on social media of an Israeli ground invasion of the Gaza Strip…

Temple Mount on Fire, Netanyahu Vows to Respond

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gaza Strip/Philistia, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on May 10, 2021 by paulthepoke

May 10, 2021: It has been a busy day in Jerusalem. Today marks the third day of clashes with violence between Israeli forces and Muslim worshippers. Ramadan closes on Wednesday, May 12th at sunset. Hundreds more were injured in the violence. As Muslims shot fireworks at Israeli forces, trees on the Temple Mount caught fire near the Al Aqsa Mosque near the south end of the holy site.

The Israeli National Holiday of Jerusalem Day took place. Jerusalem Day celebrates the reunification of Jerusalem. The holiday marks the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City post the June 1967 Six-Day War. State ceremonies and memorial services were held throughout the day.

Hamas in the Gaza Strip took the opportunity to launch rockets and missiles into Israel including Jerusalem. Rocket sirens blared throughout the capital. This was the first time since 2014 sirens were heard in Jerusalem.

Israel’s leadership did not take kindly to the incursions. Israeli Defense Forces Spokesman Jonathan Conricus issued a statement on the current status.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu indicated, “Israel would respond with great force… the current conflict could continue for some time.”

Hamas claimed responsibility for the rocket attacks on Israel and Jerusalem. Hamas had given a 6 p.m. deadline for Israel to withdraw from the Al Aqsa Mosque. Hamas responded with their deadline crossed.

Isaiah 51:5 My righteousness is near, My salvation has gone forth, and My arms will judge the peoples; the coastlands will wait for Me, and they will wait expectantly for My arm.

For those who want to read the complete document, click on the link below.

Below are maps of a future Palestine and a future Israel if the Palestinians would be agreeable to sign the peace deal.

Here are the highlights of the plan.

  • A series of tunnels and bridges would connect Palestinian lands.
  • Jerusalem would remain undivided.
  • East Jerusalem would be the capital of a future Palestine.
  • Status quo for the religious sites on the Temple Mount.
  • “All Muslims who come in peace will be welcome to visit and pray at the al-Aqsa Mosque”.
  • A high tech industrial and manufacturing zone would be provided for the Palestinians.
  • Residential and agricultural area would be provided for the Palestinians.
  • Israel maintains control of all borders.
  • Israel will manage security from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.

The Palestinians have rejected the plan. The United Nations has rejected the deal.

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.

Prophetically speaking, this is not “the covenant“. For starters, there is no Temple and there is no sacrificial system in place. There is no timeline in Trump’s plan. The covenant above is for one week or a set of seven or seven years.

We are not there yet…

“Settlements” No More in Israel, November 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on November 19, 2019 by paulthepoke

Jeremiah 33:7 I will restore Judah and Israel from captivity and will rebuild them as in former times.

The United States has reversed policy in Israel regarding “settlements”. The term “settlements” will no longer be used by the United States in reference to the lands of the West Bank in Israel. The Jewish state has managed the West Bank since 1967.

The decision reverses President Obama’s support of UN Resolution 2334 in December 2016. The UN declared that Israeli “settlements” were illegal and resulted in a “flagrant violation” of international law and has “no legal validity.”

“After carefully studying all sides of the legal debate, this administration agrees with president Reagan, The establishment of Israeli civilian settlements in the West Bank is not per se inconsistent with international law,” Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu weighed in on the historic decision. This decision is in conjunction with a recent Netanyahu campaign promise. If elected, the Prime Minister declared he would annex “settlements” in the West Bank for Israeli national security.

“The United States adopted an important policy that rights a historical wrong when the Trump administration clearly rejected the false claim that Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria are inherently illegal under international law. This policy reflects an historical truth, that the Jewish people are not foreign colonialists in Judea and Samaria. In fact, we are called Jews because we are the people of Judea.”

https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/West-Bank-settlements-not-illegal-US-decides-in-historic-US-policy-shift-608222

Palestinian response was opposed to the Trump Administration reversal.

“…contradicts totally with international law. (The Trump Administration) not qualified or authorized to cancel the resolutions of international law, and has no right to grant legality to any Israeli settlement,” Palestinian Presidential Spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeinah.

The European Union disagrees with the US policy reversal.

“The EU calls on Israel to end all settlement activity, in line with its obligations as an occupying power,” EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini.

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/11/pompeo-israeli-settlements-inconsistent-int-law-191118192156311.html

See the link below for Secretary Pompeo’s comments.

Effectively, the Trump Administration is recognizing Judea and Samaria as part of the land recognized as Israel per the Bible.

Joshua 1:2-4 Moses my servant is dead. Now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land that I am giving to them, to the people of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun shall be your territory.

Amos 9:15 I will plant them on their land, and they shall never again be uprooted out of the land that I have given them,” says the LORD your God.

Kushner Unveils Economic Portion of Middle East Peace Plan, June 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gaza Strip/Philistia, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on June 22, 2019 by paulthepoke

The economic details of the Middle East Peace plan were released by Senior White House Adviser Jared Kushner. The plan calls for $50 billion to be sent to Middle East countries. $28 billion are scheduled to go to the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Details of the plan break down which country gets how much and specific projects are named. Currently, the plan is expected to take 10 years to implement.

The plan is being compared to the Marshall Plan for western Europe after World War II.

“One of the things that they did successfully (Marshall Plan) is that they didn’t just give aid but they infused money into the private sector and they created an environment in which businesses could thrive and capital could be invested. This is a similar notion.”

“If you can also get that whole region starting to lift, and if you can get a quicker flow of goods and people in all the different areas that are necessary in industry instead of bullets and munitions and war, then I think that will really lead to a big increase in investment in the area and more jobs and better quality of life and hopefully more peace along with it.” -Jared Kushner

The White House communicated via Twitter the plan called Peace to Prosperity. The economic plan is 40 pages. See the link below.

The economic plan is divided into 4 sections: Overview, Unleashing Economic Potential, Empowering the Palestinian People, and Enhancing Palestinian Governance.

See the link below for the specifics and details.

https://www.whitehouse.gov/peacetoprosperity/empowering-palestinian-people/

The plan is reported to have 179 economic projects. There are 96 pages worth of details and financing information. Economic programs and projects of the plan are noted in the link below.

https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/MEP_programsandprojects.pdf

Jared Kushner also conducted an interview with Reuters News. The interview is 4 minutes and 35 seconds. Click on the link below for Kushner’s comments.

Fund raising will be a part of the scheduled “workshop”. Wealthy Arab Gulf states are being encouraged to make contributions in funding the plan. The United States is also promising to assist with finances.

“The reason we’re calling this a workshop and not a conference is because we want to get feedback and hopefully finalize it so that we can then coordinate a lot of the aid efforts and investing efforts to really drive these results.” -Jared Kushner

The political piece of the plan is scheduled to be released at a later date. This is likely to occur after Israeli elections on September 17, 2019.

Nobody is making the claim, “There is peace and security.” But they are starting to talk about it with intent and purpose.

Middle East Peace: “The Deal of the Century”

Posted in Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on February 12, 2019 by paulthepoke

President Donald Trump has completed his plan for peace between the Palestinians and Israel. It has been dubbed “The Deal of the Century”. The plan is reported to be 175-200 pages. Less than five people are reported to have read the plan.

President Trump has asked his son-in-law Jared Kushner to be the point man for the peace plan. Kushner is expected to go to Poland and the Middle East to discuss the plan later in February 2019.

Kushner is expected to stop in Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.

Kevin Lemarque/Reuters

Kushner will be accompanied by Middle East Envoy Jason Greenblatt, the State Department’s Special Representative to Iran Brian Hook, and Deputy Assistant to the President Avi Berkowitz.

The focus of the trip is the economic portion of the peace plan. The plan is expected to offer employment prospects in the public and private sectors of the Palestinian economy.

“Jared is going to present the economic plan to the region. The economic plan only works if the region supports it. We understand that if the political aspect of it is not solid, the economic aspect is meaningless. But at the same time the political aspect will not succeed without a proper economic plan.” -Senior White House Official.

President Trump is not expected to release the complete details of the plan to the public until Israeli elections are completed on April 9, 2019.

Israel Ministry Foreign Affairs

Granted, there is no third Jewish Temple, no two witnesses, and there is not a 10 nation leadership structure in place. That said, this all has to start with talks of peace.

Be ready. Be aware. Be vigilant…

1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

Jesus is knocking at the door…
