Turkey Begins Filling Ilisu Dam, April 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Euphrates River, Mosul/Nineveh, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on April 10, 2019 by paulthepoke

Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan has issued the order to begin filling the Ilisu Dam. This dam will withhold the waters of the Tigris River. Experts estimate it will take two to three years to fill the lake behind the dam.

The Ilisu Dam is about 45 miles from Iraq. It is 1.1 miles in length. The dam is 443 feet in heigth. Ilisu is over a mile wide. The basin area is 127 square miles. The Ilisu Dam is a monster!

The Ilisu Dam is looking to produce 1,200 megawatts of electricity to southeast Turkey. Filling with water will relocate thousands of people. The water will also cover an ancient town thousands of years old.

Turkey is the point of origin for the Tigris River and the Euphrates River. This is of significance to the people of Iraq.

Seventy (70) percent of Iraq’s water comes from rivers in other countries. Recent water shortages in 2018 resulted in farmers leaving their land in Iraq. Restrictions were placed on planting crops. Reports of limited drinking water are noted in Iraq.

The Ilisu Dam is one of 22 dams Turkey intends to build on the Tigris River and the Euphrates River.

“Iraq is subject to a true water blockade and Turkey is using the water issue for political purposes. Iraq must take action to contain the crisis, which may extend for years to come. The UN and international organizations must intervene to solve this crisis. The common rivers are common property, and postponing filling the dam, or an abundance of rain, doesn’t mean a drought won’t occur, unless Iraq signs agreements to guarantee fixed water shares.” -Mansour al-Baiji, Iraqi Parliament Water Committee

Long term, Iraqi water issues are not going away. Iran is also blocking water flows into Iraq. The Iranians have stopped or reduced the flow of 42 rivers and streams into Iraq. Iran has built 109 dams blocking water flow into Iraq. There are others dams under construction in Iran at this time to further restrict water flow into Iraq.

Granted, this is later in the seven year tribulation. But this prophecy in Revelation 16 does not seem that far fetched now…

Revelation 16:12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river, the Euphrates; and its water was dried up, so that the way would be prepared for the kings from the east.

Currently, weeks of rain and melting snow have resulted in a short term flooding crisis across Iraq. Major lakes in Iraq are full. The Tigris and Euphrates are flooding.

Fear not, experts say everything is okay…

“We are in control of the dams and reservoir levels. We are not worried about their safety or stability. The ministry has warned people living in flood zones, is coordinating with local governments, and is monitoring the reservoir and dam pressure levels.” -Aoun Diab, Water Ministry Spokesman

https://www.voanews.com/a/iraq-seeks-to-reassure-over-reservoirs-and-dam-pressures/4868429.html

Nahum tells what the future of the Tigris River holds. He promises the judgment of ancient Nineveh or what is 21st century Mosul, Iraq. It comes with a flood after a long history of bloodshed.

Nahum 1:8 But with an overflowing flood He will make a complete end of the adversaries, and will pursue his enemies into darkness.

Nahum 2:6 The gates of the rivers are opened and the palace is dissolved.

Blood Red Rivers: Malawi, Africa; Jayapura, Indonesia, January 2019

Posted in Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on January 4, 2019 by paulthepoke

Revelation 16:4 Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of waters; and they became blood.

The Revelation 16 verse is late in the order of the seven year Tribulation. The scope and scale are all of the rivers and springs on Earth. For those who are new to the website, it is our position…that we are not in the tribulation.

As of January 2019, there is no Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, no “peace covenant” with Israel, no 10 nation federation, no two witnesses, and no antichrist. Let’s get that out of the way.

January 2019: The locations of the “bloody” happenings are Malawi, Africa and Jayapura, Indonesia.

Linthipe River, Dedza, Africa: The local river is the source of many activities including laundry and water for the household.

A village woman reported the following, “As usual, we came to this place to wash our clothes besides drawing water for home use. But to our surprise we saw that blood like stuff was flowing in the river. This scared us and we called some people to witness the bizarre circumstances.”

Group Village Head (GVH) Nthandizi indicated the following, “A lot of conflicting information has emerged, with some saying it could be red oxide while others say it is blood and others say this has to do with science.”

It appears a local mine released red oxide into the river…

Jayapura, Papua Province of Indonesia: The local river is located on the island of New Guinea. Local news coverage was not available. Here is a link to the video provided by a resident in the city.

At some point in the future, the scope and scale will be planet earth.

China in the Mediterranean, 2018

Posted in Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 4, 2018 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 49:12 Look, they come from far away! Look, some come from the north and west, and others from the land of Sinim!

Genesis 10:16-18 the Jebusites, Amorites, Girgashites, Hivites, Arkites, Sinites, Arvadites, Zemarites, and Hamathites. Eventually the families of the Canaanites were scattered.

The following is from the Genesis Record, Henry Morris.

The Biblical mention of a people in the Far East named “Sinim” (Isaiah 49:12), together with references in ancient secular histories to people in the Far East called “Sinae,” at least suggests the possibility that some of Sin’s descendants migrated eastward, while others went south into the land of Canaan. It is significant that the Chinese people have always been identified by the prefix “Sino-” (e.g., Sino-Japanese War; Sinology, the study of Chinese history). The name “Sin” is frequently encountered in Chinese names in the form “Siang” or its equivalent.

The evidence is tenuous but, of all the names in the Table of Nations, it does seem that two sons of Canaan, Heth (Hittites = Khittae = Cathay) and Sin (Sinites = Sinim = China), are the most likely to have become ancestors of the Oriental peoples. Since it seems reasonable that divine inspiration would include in such a table information concerning the ancestry of all the major streams of human development, it is reasonable to conclude that the Mongoloid peoples (and therefore also the American Indians) have come mostly from the Hamitic line.

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.

In 2015, President Xi of China released the Belt and Road Initiative. China is looking to increase business with at least 68 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Land routes are considered to be “the belt”. Sea routes are considered to be “the road”.

China is looking to spend billions of dollars of investment on infrastructure projects. China is investing in Israel. Here is a list of projects. There are seaports in Haifa and Ashdod, Mount Carmel tunnels in Haifa, and the Tel Aviv light rail.

“What concerns us is China’s Belt and Road Initiative and its growing role in Israel’s maritime domain, especially the operating of Haifa port,” Retired Rear Admiral Professor Shaul Chorev.

“If you are going to look at phenomena like this initiative, you should look at it from all points of view. Most militaries use civilian technology, and that’s one reason why the Chinese favor economic activities like expanding ports. These are not only commercial, but commercial with military implications,” Douglas Feith, Director Center for National Security Strategies at the Hudson Institute.

Trend Update: Blood Red Bardawni River, Lebanon, February 2018

Posted in Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , on February 25, 2018 by paulthepoke

Revelation 16:4 Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of waters; and they became blood.

Relax…just some red dye that was dumped into the Bardawni River near Zahle, Lebanon.

Local authorities will, “take the maximum action against anyone who appears in the investigation, causing this pollution or contributing to it.”

https://www.timesofisrael.com/alarm-as-river-in-lebanon-turns-red/

This is Lebanon’s first report of a blood red body of water. Let’s welcome them to the growing list of nations…

This is one body of water in Lebanon. At some point in the future, the scope and scale will be planet earth.

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

http://www.worldoil.com/news/2018/2/14/zion-oil-gas-encounters-oil-onshore-israel

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: Blood Red Molchanka River, Tyumen, Russia, February 2018

February 2, 2018: Tyumen, Russia. The Molchanka River has turned blood red. And the experts are clueless. The response by local authorities is different than in previous cases around the world. There are concerns for public safety due to contamination. Officials are not releasing the results of tests.

“Officials from the State Supervision Authority and Tyumen region administration are driving along the river, checking if this could have been caused by a dump from an enterprise.”

This is Russia’s second report of blood red body of water in the past two years. This is the first report of a blood red river during the winter.

Trend Update: Blood Red Nsukwa River, Ghana, October 2017

Posted in Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , on October 14, 2017 by paulthepoke

Ghana Blood Red

Revelation 16:4 Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of waters; and they became blood.

The Revelation 16 verse is late in the order of the seven year Tribulation. The scope and scale are all of the rivers and springs on Earth. Currently, there is no Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, no “peace covenant” with Israel, no 10 nation federation, no two witnesses, and no antichrist. Let’s get that out of the way.

October 9, 2017: The nation of Ghana is now a member of the blood red river club. The location of the Nsukwa River is near Koforidua, Ghana. The location is in southern Ghana.

The blood red river is making quite a commotion. Local tribal leaders and evangelists are arguing about the meaning of the event. Residents of Koforidua responded to the event with “fear and panic”.

Tribal leaders have branded the evangelists as false prophets. Dr. Lawrence Tetteh and Bishop Yaw Adu are “false prophets who are only interested in causing fear and panic to dupe people.”

The Evangelist Dr. Tetteh for his part is casting demons out of the river. He states the event was caused by the sin of local people.

“We cast every demon; we say Koforidua shall be peaceful. There will not be bloodshed; there will not be anything evil; the people of Koforidua will be blessed. As we see this thing in the river, the river is looking like blood. Whatever it is and wherever it comes from, we bless it in Jesus’ name, Amen!” -Dr. Lawrence Tetteh.

Tribal leader Baffuor Tutu Boateng Nyantakyi stated this has nothing to do with the festival of Akwantukesie. Apparently there are festival rituals involving blood from humans and animals… 

“It has nothing to do with the Akwantukesie that we are going to celebrate. It has nothing to do with human blood; it has nothing to do with goat blood.” -Baffuor Tutu Boateng Nyantakyi

Police Chief Inspector Ebenezer Sekyi of the local law enforcement indicated tie-and-dye powder polluted the river. A local manufacturer was to blame. Investigation into the incident continues. Further actions by local officials are pending.

Videos and pictures of the event are provided by locals in the link below.

The event in Ghana is not the fulfillment of Revelation 16:4. We are not in the tribulation, The Great Day of the Lord.

Regardless of how the event happened, the trend continues…
