Trump was transferred and admitted to Walter Reed Hospital just before Tabernacles/Sukkot began. Some may say this is a coincidence. Some may not. Your call.

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

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.

Rapture: Be Careful What You Wish

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Culture, Prophecy, Rapture, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on August 14, 2020 by paulthepoke

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

There has been a rapture cartoon circulating social media for the past few months. Essentially, people politically opposed to President Donald Trump are yearning for the rapture. See the text below.

Something for those folks to consider… You may live to see the day. However, things will not turn out as you think.

The issue is not “IF”. The concern should be “WHEN”.

1 Corinthians 15:51-57 Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:

“Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?”

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

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.

Michael Douville has weighed in and expressed his thoughts. As always, Michael provides a common sense approach with practical advice.

One of the advantages of getting older are the episodes of Life we have been through. We have seen this before. It will be scary, it will give sleepless nights, but we are all going to come through this and be Fine! There will be stock rallies to help raise cash and there will be opportunities to buy other Investments.

We are all going to be FINE!! This will be Scary! There will be TURMOIL! This should lead to the Explosive Phase of the Real Estate Market. Remember, Real Estate is a separate asset class.

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.

The prophets in Jeremiah 49 and Ezekiel 38-39 state Iran is a major player in the end times scenario…

Jeremiah 49:34-39 That which came as the word of the LORD to Jeremiah the prophet concerning Elam, at the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying: “Thus says the LORD of hosts, ‘Behold, I am going to break the bow of Elam, the finest of their might. ‘I will bring upon Elam the four winds from the four ends of heaven, and will scatter them to all these winds; and there will be no nation to which the outcasts of Elam will not go. ‘So I will shatter Elam before their enemies and before those who seek their lives; and I will bring calamity upon them, even My fierce anger,’ declares the LORD, ‘And I will send out the sword after them until I have consumed them. ‘Then I will set My throne in Elam and destroy out of it king and princes,’ declares the LORD. ‘But it will come about in the last days that I will restore the fortunes of Elam,’” declares the LORD.

Turkey Launches Operation Peace Spring, October 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Euphrates River, Ezekiel 38-39, Kurds/Medes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on October 10, 2019 by paulthepoke

Turkey has begun to move forces into northern Syria to remove Kurds from the region. Turkey has coined the term Operation Peace Spring.

Turkey’s Minister of National Defense has released a tweet of the stated objectives.

President Recep Erdogan is defending Turkey’s decision to move into Syria. Erdogan is threatening to open Turkey’s borders to Europe with 3.6 million refugees if the European Union is insistent on calling the operation an invasion and occupation.

The link below is from the Twitter feed of the Turkish media outlet Anadolu Agency.

The United States Government is divided in how to manage the situation. President Trump has authorized the removal of US troops. Trump has indicated he was elected to get the United States out of pointless wars.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham from South Carolina and others indicate Trump has betrayed Kurdish allies in the Middle East by leaving them vulnerable without US military assets. There is bipartisan support for sanctions against Turkey.

International response is opposed to Turkey’s move into Syria.

The majority of the military intervention is currently taking place from the Euphrates River in the west to the Tigris River in the far east border of Syria.

Ezekiel 38:1-3 The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.

Ezekiel 38:6 Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-Togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

The brothers of Magog (Meshech, Gomer, and Tubal) appear to point to modern day Turkey.

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 (Ezekiel 38-39).
