Israel & Iran Continue to Escalate, Israel’s Independence Day 5781/2021

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 14, 2021 by paulthepoke

April 14, 2021: Today is Israel’s 73rd year of rebirth of being a state. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu marked the occasion with remarks regarding the handling of the Corona Virus. His statements included commentary of the previous year’s Abraham Accords with Arab neighbors in the “Circle of Peace”. For complete comments, see the video provided via Twitter.

Today also marked a missile attack on an Israeli commercial ship, the Hyperion Ray. The ship is reported to transport cars. Multiple news outlets around the world are reporting Iran likely carried out the attack. The incident occurred off the coast of the United Arab Emirates in the Gulf of Oman. Injuries are not reported at the time of this post. Damage to the ship is reported to be light.

The attack comes on the heels of Iran’s nuclear facility at Natanz being struck. Two days ago Iran’s nuclear site was struck by a cyber attack which resulted in an explosion. Thousands of centrifuges, which were reported to be at least 150 feet underground, were destroyed.

Israeli press referred to the event as an “accident”. Iranian press referred to the event as “terrorism”. Initially it was reported as an electrical “black out”.

This is the same facility in Natanz that was struck in July of 2020. This time a different part of the plant was affected.

The BBC has provided a comprehensive look at the attack, the scientific process of how centrifuges work, and the geo-political situation surrounding recent events. Click on the link below.

The same day the “accident” occurred in Natanz, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu met with U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. Netanyahu stated he will not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons. See the video link below for Netanyahu’s comments.

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

At some point in the future, the prophet Ezekiel tells us Iran will join forces with Russia and look to invade Israel from the north. Russia and its allies will receive a Divine whipping. See Ezekiel 38-39 for the details.

Iranian assets have been exploding throughout the country and at sea for the last year.

Morocco Joins Abraham Accords, Hanukkah 5781/2020

Washington, D.C., Hanukkah, December 10, 2020: President Trump announced Morocco has become the fourth country to formalize relations with Israel. Morocco, along with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan, has joined Israel in the Abraham Accords. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu refers to the agreement as the “circle of peace”.

The event occurred on the first day of Hanukkah.

In addition to normalization of relations with Israel, President Trump recognized Morocco’s sovereignty over the Western Sahara.

Trump continues to move forward with the peace initiative despite having the disputed election results contested in the Supreme Court.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took to Twitter where he posted his comments.

King Mohammed VI of Morocco did not have a formal statement at the time of this post. The king does not have a Twitter account.

Senior White House Adviser Jared Kushner hinted there could be more participants in the Abraham Accords including Saudi Arabia.

John 10:22 At that time the Feast of Dedication took place at Jerusalem. It was winter…

Jesus attended the celebration of Hanukkah at the Temple. In the context of John 10, Jesus would come under fire for claiming to be God. The mob was ready to stone Christ.

John 10:28-30 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them out of My hand. My Father who has given them to Me is greater than all. No one can snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”

Of note, Jesus uses the word “snatch” two times. This the Greek word ἁρπάζω/harpazó. It means: properly, seize by force; snatch up, suddenly and decisively, like someone seizing bounty (spoil, a prize); to take by an open display of force (i.e. not covertly or secretly). -Helps Word Studies

This is the Greek word for “rapture”. Just an observation. My personal belief is the rapture occurs in and around the Fall Feasts.

But this point is an absolute fact. Believers are secure in the Father and the Son. No one is going to take us away from Them. This is eternal security.

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.

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

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.

“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.

#JiHadEnough, November 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gaza Strip/Philistia, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on November 12, 2019 by paulthepoke

November 2019: This is Israel Defense Forces (IDF) new slogan against Jihad.

#JiHadEnough

This is a developing and breaking story out of the Gaza Strip. 200+ rockets have been fired into Israel. The IDF estimates 90% have been intercepted.

Islamic Jihad Leader of Gaza, Baha Abu Al Ata has been targeted by the IDF. Baha Abu Al Ata is no longer the leader of Islamic Jihad in Gaza.

Below is a tweet from the IDF summarizing recent military activity in and around the Gaza Strip.

See Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks in the Twitter link below.

Two witnesses say there will come a time when the LORD has #JiHadEnough…

Zephaniah 2:4-5 For Gaza shall be deserted, and Ashkelon shall become a desolation; Ashdod’s people shall be driven out at noon, and Ekron shall be uprooted. Woe to you inhabitants of the seacoast, you nation of the Cherethites! The word of the LORD is against you, O Canaan, land of the Philistines; and I will destroy you until no inhabitant is left.

Ezekiel 25:15-17 Thus says the Lord God, “Because the Philistines have acted in revenge and have taken vengeance with scorn of soul to destroy with everlasting enmity,” therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I will stretch out My hand against the Philistines, even cut off the Cherethites and destroy the remnant of the seacoast. I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes; and they will know that I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance on them.”

Netanyahu and Putin Meet in Sochi, Russia, September 2019

September 12, 2019, Sochi, Russia: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Below are comments made by Israel’s Netanyahu prior to leaving for Russia.

The Sochi meeting took place as Russia has condemned Netanyahu’s annexation plans if elections go his way next week. Russia has expressed concern this would lead to increased tension in the region.

Prime Minister Netanyahu made the following comments in a joint press conference with Vladimir Putin.

“Our tightening relations are the result of our mutual policy as well as the personal bond we share. This bond has prevented unnecessary and dangerous friction between our armies. This is a fundamental component of the regional stability. Security coordination is always important, but it is especially important now, in light of the past month’s sharp spike in the number and the scope of Iran’s attempts to harm Israel from Syrian territory and transfer precision missiles to Syria. We won’t tolerate this threat and therefore must avoid any friction between us.” -Benjamin Netanyahu

President Putin had the following comments during the press conference.

“We know that a million and a half Soviet Union repatriates are currently residing in Israel. We always treated them as our people. It is extremely important to us who is elected to the next Knesset and we hope they will maintain the friendship between our nations and further strengthen our relationship.” -Vladimir Putin

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…”

For over 2,500 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). The pieces are falling into place. How close are we to the events documented by Ezekiel?

Prime Minister Netanyahu to Annex the West Bank With Election Win, September 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2019 by paulthepoke

Joshua 1:2-3 “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.

September 10, 2019: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made his “dramatic announcement”. If Netanyahu emerges victorious in the upcoming elections on September 17, he plans to annex settlements in the West Bank.

“This is the eastern shield that ensures that we will never return to being a country with a width of a few kilometers. This map guarantees strategic depth to Israel. It defines our eastern border.”

There are an estimated 30 settlements and 8,000 residents that would come under Israeli sovereignty.

Netanyahu plans to coordinate with the United States. President Donald Trump has promised to deliver his peace plan after elections on September 17.

“Out of respect for President Trump and out of great faith in our friendship, I’ll wait before applying sovereignty over settlements until the presentation of the diplomatic plan of the [US] president. As much as is possible, I want to apply sovereignty over settlements and other areas in maximum coordination with the U.S.,” Prime Minister Netanyahu.

“We will release our Vision for Peace after the Israeli election and work to determine the best path forward to bring long sought security, opportunity and stability to the region,” Trump Administration Spokesman.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/in-campaign-pitch-netanyahu-vows-to-annex-jordan-valley-if-reelected/

The United Nations (UN) is not happy with today’s proclamation.

“The secretary-general’s position has always been clear: unilateral actions are not helpful in the peace process. Any Israeli decision to impose its laws, jurisdictions and administration in the occupied West Bank is without any international legal effect. Such a prospect would be devastating to the potential of reviving negotiations, regional peace, and the very essence of a two-state solution.” -UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is threatening.

“We have the right to defend our rights and achieve our goals by all available means, whatever the results, as Netanyahu’s decisions contradict the resolutions of international legitimacy and international law.” -Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas

https://www.timesofisrael.com/un-warns-israel-against-netanyahu-pledge-to-annex-west-bank

Looks like Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wants to take back what God gave Israel in the first place. Besides, this is only the beginning of what God promised His chosen people.

Genesis 15:18-21 On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates: the Kenite and the Kenizzite and the Kadmonite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Rephaim and the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Girgashite and the Jebusite.”
