The volcanic eruption continues to intensify on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands.

Russian President Vladimir Putin hosted Turkish President Recep Erdogan in Sochi, Russia earlier in the week. Ezekiel’s Magog invasion continues to take shape as the two countries strengthen ties.

Natural gas prices are reaching all time historic highs across Europe as Russia cuts supply. The backdrop… As Israel begins to establish itself in the energy industry with their newly found, plentiful natural gas resources.

Iran has moved significant military hardware to their border with Azerbaijan. Tensions are increasing with their neighbor to the north and west. Iran also confirmed their proxy military resources throughout the Middle East.

Tropical storm Shaheen entered the Gulf of Oman and is bearing down on the Straits of Hormuz in a rare meteorological event.

Where Is the World Headed??? Bernie Dahl

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 28, 2021 by paulthepoke

In this topsy turvy world we live in today, where is our world headed? The best source to find that answer is the Bible, God’s communication to future generations of man.

Throughout the Old Testament there are more than 100 prophecies that foretold of a savior coming to earth to redeem man. Yet, all these prophecies were ignored by God’s own people.

However, Magi from Babylon, who had the history of Daniel teaching them, came looking for the Messiah. They were sure had been born.

In our lifetime, at least mine, we have seen the Children of Israel returned to their land in 1948 after 1,900+ years of exile. During most of that time, the Promised Land where their ancestors had lived for several thousand years had become a barren wasteland. But today, it is very productive in unbelievable ways.

Are there prophecies told to us in the Bible that are yet unfulfilled? Yes. Let me give you a few.

Currently, the city of Damascus is the oldest continuously populated city having been in existence for more than 3,000 years. Yet Isaiah 17:2 tells us it will be destroyed and never again inhabited. Could this happen in our lifetime? Very possibly Yes. What is in the news almost weekly in the Middle East? Iran is shipping weapons to the Damascus airport to be further transported to it’s proxy countries bordering Israel. What is Israel doing? The munitions barely arrive before Israel destroys them. Think. When, not if, Iran develops an atomic bomb and brings it to Damascus to use against Israel. What is going to happen? Bingo! See, the makings of the fulfillment of this prophecy are clearly possible in our lifetime.

~

Next, let me ask you what three Middle Eastern countries have troops in Syria on the border of Israel today? Russia, Iran and Turkey. You say yes. But, one is atheist; one is Sunni; and one is Shiite Muslim. So what do they have in common?

While once again what does our Bible, God’s word to mankind, tells us? In Ezekiel chapters 38 snd 39, we are told these three countries are going to come against Israel to take spoils and No nation will come to Israel’s aid.

Israel, besides it’s great agricultural products, has recently found abundant oil and natural gas reserves that are huge. Something that Russia dearly desire to have.

Until very recent times, you would say that of course America will come to Israel’s aid. However, it is very obvious that America’s current administration will never come to Israel’s aid.

So where does that put us? Once again, very clearly, this prophecy foretold by God to the prophets some 3,000 years ago has a very, very high potential of being fulfilled, not only in our lifetime, but virtually at any day now.

~

Will these things happen before the “Church” is taken home to be with God in the pre-Tribulation Rapture? We. Don’t know. The Rapture could happen first or these prophecies could be fulfilled first. BUT, one thing is almost certain. These events are not years and years away. Clearly, they are most likely going to happen within the lifetime of the majority of the people alive today.

The question you must ask yourself, “What is my standing with God?”

At the final judgment day, will God welcome you to Heaven?

Or will He say, “Depart from Me, I never knew you?”

This Week in Prophecy: Ezekiel 38-39 and Russian War Games, Global Vaccine Mandates & Protests

https://valortube.com/groups/paul-lehr

Ezekiel 38-39 remains in the headlines as Russia is practicing war games with Belarus and Kyrgyzstan.

Anti vaccine mandates have taken the globe by storm in the last week. Protests have erupted in the United States, Israel, Austria, Paris, and Istanbul. Israel’s patience is being tested with the unvaccinated and have introduced genetic scanning to stop the spread of COVID and any mutation. Are these government mandates tying people’s behavior to economic participation a forerunner to the mark of the beast?

It would appear Revelation 9’s 200,000,000 man army is on the move in Afghanistan.

Daniel 9:26b …Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed.

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.

This Week In Prophecy: Jesus, Ezekiel 38-39, Inflation, Feasts Approaching, Oval Office Nap

This Week in Prophecy

https://valortube.com/groups/paul-lehr/

On This Week in Prophecy we go around the world and take a look at events that align with the signs of the times according to the prophets, apostles, and Jesus.

We start with Jesus and a coin discovered near Tel Aviv.

Ezekiel 38-39 continues to dominate the headlines. Russia and China look to work together in the name of peace for stability in Afghanistan and the region. Russia, Iran, and China look to a naval exercise possibly later this year in the Persian Gulf, for peaceful purposes of course against piracy. Vladimir Putin looks to build and expand Russian naval capability. The build towards Magog’s attempted invasion of Israel continues.

Federal Reserve Chairman Powell had his big speech this past week from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The result, more money, more money, more money!!! Hello more inflation!!! Mind you the Chairman’s models suggest that inflation is “transitory”. Revelation 6 calls for hyperinflation at the onset of the Tribulation. So we watch.

President Biden took a nap in the Oval Office with Israeli Prime Minister Bennett. The leader of the free world is figuratively and literally asleep at the wheel.

Lastly, is the shofar a vector for the spread of COVID19??? Jewish concerns and questions ahead of the Fall Feasts?

Where Is America In Prophecy???

This Week in Prophecy

Where is America in Prophecy???

The short answer is, America is not there. It is not mentioned directly.

https://valortube.com/profile/paulthepoke/

America is stepping away from the world stage. And every place America has left, a vacuum is created. Something will fill the vacuum.

As America left Afghanistan, the Taliban took its place. As chaos rules, the Taliban is supported by players in end times Biblical prophecies, specifically Russia, Iran, and China.

In this edition, we go around the region and look at the void left by American departure and who has taken its place. The recent histories of Libya, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Syria, Turkey, and Lebanon are covered.

Ezekiel 38-39 are in play, big time!

How close are we to these events unfolding and prophecy being fulfilled?

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

Russia’s Vladimir Putin Looks to Influence Libya’s Presidential Election???

This Week in Prophecy
Russia’s Vladimir Putin Looks to Influence Libya’s Presidential Election???

https://valortube.com/profile/paulthepoke/

Libya’s presidential election is set for December 24, 2021. It appears Russia is looking to be a “king maker”.

Articles have emerged this week that Moscow is looking to consolidate power in the region by supporting Saif al-Islam Qaddafi. He is the son of the deceased Libyan leader Muammar Muhammad Qaddafi.

Who is Qaddafi’s son? Who is General Haftar? Who is the Wagner company? What is the United States’ response and thoughts on these happenings?

Russia has been moving military hardware into Libya. Benghazi is home to a Russian military base.

Ezekiel’s prophecy from chapters 38-39 is clearly in focus. The prophet stated that Russia will be joined modern day Turkey, Iran, and Libya in its invasion of Israel. The reasons are purely economic… to steal and take plunder.

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?’

Ezekiel 38:1 The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog…

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Put will join you, too, with all their weapons.

These ancient names comprise the modern day countries of Russia and Libya.

Magog: Russia

Put: Libya

About 2,500 years ago, the prophet Ezekiel stated Russia will be joined by several countries with their future invasion of Israel from the north. One of those countries is modern day Libya.

Are we watching Gog of Magog attempt to build his coalition?

Russian Policy Change Towards Israel?

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , on July 31, 2021 by paulthepoke

Are we watching a changing Russian foreign policy towards Israel? Russia has publicly indicated they are “running out of patience” with Israel’s actions in Syria. Russia is demonstrating a more aggressive posture around the world with military testing and political talk. Russia has introduced anti missile upgrades and technical capabilities in Syria.

Ezekiel 38:1-4 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. And I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great host, all of them with buckler and shield, wielding swords.

Ezekiel 39:2 And I will turn you about and drive you forward, and bring you up from the uttermost parts of the north, and lead you against the mountains of Israel.

Is God setting the “hook” in the mouth of Gog of Magog?

What does the United States and President Biden have to say?

How do these current events line up with Biblical prophecy? What does the future hold for ancient Magog or modern day Russia?

These ancient names comprise the modern day countries of Russia and Turkey.

Magog: Russia

Meshech, Tubal, Beth-togarmah, Gomer: Turkey

About 2,500 years ago, the prophet Ezekiel stated Russia will be joined by several countries with their future invasion of Israel from the north.

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…”

What does secular history say about the Magogians? Who are they? In the 7th century BC, Hesiod the Greek poet identified the Scythians as people of modern day southern Russia. Hesiod’s writings pre dated the Ezekiel the prophet.

The Father of History, Herodotus, labeled the descendants of Magog by their Greek name, Scythians. This occurred in the 5th century AD.

About 2,500 years ago, the prophet Ezekiel says Russia will be joined by Turkey, Iran, Libya, possibly Sudan and Ethiopia. There intent is a future invasion of Israel.

On August 15, 2016, Russia acquired its first permanent air base in Syria, the Khmeimim Air Base near Latakia, Syria. The Russians have been building and expanding their military presence in the region since.

Blood Red Iskitimka River, Kemerovo, Russia, November 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , on November 8, 2020 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.

Google

Iskitimka River, Kemerovo, Russia, November 7, 2020: Contamination has lead to the Iskitimka River turning red. Kemerovo is a city in southwest Siberia, Russia. Kemerovo is an industrial city of about 500,000. The culprit appears to be a chemically clogged sewage drain… allegedly.

Experts are not sure if the river is hazardous to the health of the citizens.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8924189/Russian-citys-rivers-run-RED-mystery-pollution-ducks-refuse-swim-toxic-water.html

Below are some quotes from locals.

“There are no ducks in the river, all are on the bank,” Andrey German, citizen.

“The city storm drainage system is a possible source of contaminated water,” Deputy Governor Andrei Panov, Kemerovo.

“Today it is not a river, it is like cranberry jelly,” Elena Dubrovskaya, citizen.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8924189/Russian-citys-rivers-run-RED-mystery-pollution-ducks-refuse-swim-toxic-water.html

The Revelation 16 verse is late in the order of the seven year Tribulation. Currently, we are not in the tribulation.

This event is the result of a clogged sewage drain spilling into a river in Siberia. None the less, the river is red. The critic can not explain it away.
