Israel, Egypt, and European Union Sign Historic Gas Deal

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 16, 2022 by paulthepoke

Deuteronomy 33:18-19 And of Zebulun he said, “Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going out, and Issachar, in your tents. They shall call peoples to their mountain; there they offer right sacrifices; for they draw from the abundance of the seas and the hidden treasures of the sand.”

In early October 2015, Israel discovered a vast oil deposit in the Golan Heights region north of the Sea of Galilee. The coast of Israel is home to two tremendous areas of natural gas. The Leviathan oil and gas basin in the Mediterranean Sea is believed to hold 1.7 billion barrels of oil. The basin also holds an estimated 122 trillion cubic feet of natural gas (Noble Energy, U.S. Geological Survey). A second oil and natural gas basin is the Tamar. It is estimated to hold 7.9 trillion cubic feet of natural gas (Noble Energy). In June of 2022, a third major basin is emerging, the Karish gas field.

Cairo, Egypt, June 16, 2022: Israel, Egypt, and the European Union have signed a historic gas deal. The document has gas deliveries to Europe until 2050. Under the plan, Israeli gas will be transported by pipeline to Egypt’s Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) terminal on the Mediterranean Sea. Then, LNG will be transported by ship to Europe.

The deal should bring 1 Billion shekels or $290 million dollars to the Israeli government.

Egyptian Petroleum Minister Tarek el-Molla indicated the agreement should result in more economic cooperation between members of the East Mediterranean Gas Forum, which comprises Jordan, Israel, Cyprus, Greece, Egypt, the Palestinian Authority, France and Italy.

Europe now has existing gas deals with Israel, the United States, and Qatar.

“The memorandum of understanding will allow Israel to export Israeli natural gas to Europe for the first time, and it is even more impressive when one looks at the string of significant agreements we have signed in the past year, positioning Israel and the Israeli energy and water economy as a key player in the world,” Israeli Energy Minister Karine Elharrar.

“This is a historic day for the EU’s energy engagement and energy security: Signing the MOU with Egypt and Israel, two reliable, strategic partners. We will be able to count on LNG from Israel and the Mediterranean region via the Egyptian LNG infrastructure,” EU Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson

The European Union receives approximately 40% of its natural gas from Russia.

“The Kremlin has used our dependency on Russian fossil fuels to blackmail us. Since the beginning of the war, Russia has deliberately cut off its gas supplies to Poland, Bulgaria and Finland, and Dutch and Danish companies, in retaliation for our support to Ukraine,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.

As this deal was being signed, Russia via Gazprom closed the spigot of natural gas by 15% to Italy on the same day. An explanation was not given. Italy receives 40% of its gas from Russia.

Gazprom also cut delivery of natural gas to Germany by 40%. Equipment repairs were needed, allegedly.

Ezekiel 38:12 to capture spoil and to seize plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places which are now inhabited, and against the people who are gathered from the nations, who have acquired cattle and goods, who live at the center of the world.

…to turn your hand against the waste places which are now inhabited… This is an accurate description of the land of Israel prior to their return to the land in the early 20th century. The land was known as chorbah in the Hebrew. Per Strong’s it means: a place laid waste, ruin, waste, desolation, or a desert.

… and against the people who are gathered from the nations… From the Balfour Declaration in 1917, the rebirth of a nation in 1948, to reclaiming Jerusalem as its capital in 1967, Jews have been returning to their land to the present day.

… who have acquired cattle and goods… Cows from Israel are noted to be the most productive in the world when it comes to milk. Cows are constantly monitored and under intense observation. Data is taken intently from a variety of perspectives.

… who live at the center of the world. This is God’s view of the nation Israel. This is where His people live. The geography of the nation is “the center of the world”.

The Watchmen: Burden of Damascus Airport, Europe Gas Deal with Israel?, Lawlessness, Food Security Concerns Increase, Feet of Iron and Clay?

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 13, 2022 by paulthepoke

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

Isaiah 17, The Burden of Damascus

In this episode of The Watchmen, it would appear Israel has upped the ante by targeting the Damascus International Airport. Significant damage has occurred to the runways of the airport which resulted in the closing of the airport to commercial and domestic traffic. Russia has voiced their displeasure towards Israel. The concern is the flow of military equipment from Iran to Lebanon and Hezbollah.

The European Commission is proposing a gas deal with Israel via Egypt. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is traveling to Israel this week to iron a potential gas deal. The goal is “to advance relations between the EU and Israel, especially cooperation in the area of energy. The president will also discuss with Israeli government representatives the global reaction to the food crisis and the situation in the Middle East.”

Meanwhile, the Israeli Navy is standing by drilling rigs as they travel to the Karish gas field in the Mediterranean Sea. Israel looks to continue to expand their production of natural gas.

~

2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.

Lawlessness continues to abound. Mexican President López Obrador attempted to blackmail President Biden at the Summit of the Americas. To President Biden’s credit, “We do not believe that dictators should be invited.” However, The International Organization for Migration tells the United States more immigration is coming and deal with it. Meanwhile, governors from Texas and Florida are bickering on how to manage the influx of illegal people coming to the United States. All the while, Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega has allowed Russian troops into the country for training, law enforcement and emergency response. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro was not invited to Los Angeles for the summit, so Maduro went Tehran to visit President Ebrahim Raisi at the Sa’adabad Palace. Backroom deals galore…

Iran is inching closer to a nuclear bomb.

~

Revelation 6:6 And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

Hyperinflated food prices are noted at the onset of the Tribulation. So we continue to watch trends of food inflation. Russian President Vladimir Putin and “Nazis” and others continue to weaponize food by setting grain fields on fire, laying mines in fields and sea ports, and destroying stockpiles of grains in Ukraine.

The list continues to grow in the United States. Ninety-five (95) food processing plants have gone up in flames since President Biden has taken office. The list continues to expand and increase in frequency. This essentially has become a war on poultry. Chickens and turkey plants appear to be the main target with millions upon millions of birds destroyed. The result is a reasonably priced source of protein in eggs and birds are impacted.

Chinese owned Smithfield Farms has announced they are closing business in California due to bureaucratic red tape. Yet another strain on the food supply.

~

China continues to threaten Taiwan.

~

Daniel 2:33 …its legs were iron, and its feet were part iron and part clay.

This is Nebuchadnezzar’s statue from the prophet Daniel. The focus is the last global empire. This has yet to emerge on the scene. The point is to file this information away. It is interesting only because there are 10 nations involved. The Deterring Enemy Forces and Enabling National Defenses (DEFEND) Act has bipartisan support in the House and Senate in the United States. The goal is to create an integrated missile and air defense infrastructure to defend against the Iranians. The bill would allow the US Defense Department to support Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, and Oman. Are we saying this confederation of nations is the group of 10 nations? NO! Just watching with interest.

The Watchmen: Rolling Stone & End Times, Tigris River Drying, Saudi & Israeli Economic Ties, Food Supplies Tighten, More Inflation, Iran, China & Taiwan, Cultural Changes & Hate Speech

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 7, 2022 by paulthepoke

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

First and foremost, my apologies for audio quality, sorry.

In this episode of The Watchmen, The Rolling Stone fulfills Peter’s prophetic words. The Rolling Stone offers their take on Evangelical Christians and current affairs as related to the second coming of Jesus Christ.

2 Peter 3:4 They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.”

The Tigris River and the Mosul Dam are back in the news. Water resources are dwindling in Iraq. Farmers are feeling the affects of drought in the region. Turkey has a system of dams impacting the Tigris River valley. Nahum says ancient Nineveh and the river valley eventually get flushed and flooded.

Nahum 1:8 But with an overwhelming flood He will make an end of Nineveh and pursue His enemies into darkness.

Nahum 2:6-8 The river gates are thrown open and the palace collapses. It is decreed that the city be exiled and carried away; her maidservants moan like doves, and beat upon their breasts. Nineveh has been like a pool of water throughout her days, but now it is draining away. “Stop! Stop!” they cry, but no one turns back.

Saudi Arabia and Israel are talking economic agreement regarding a variety of topics The futuristic city of Neom is a consideration. This is a $500 billion investment!!!

Russia is allegedly targeting Ukraine grain stock piles. Food resources continue to be targeted across the United States. Turkey is experiencing run away inflation of up to 75%. Supply chains continue to be disrupted. The cost of food is going up around the planet. Revelation 6 talks of food hyperinflation and a day’s wage to feed a family.

Things are not exactly rosy inside of Iran. Citizens continue to protest against the government.

China is encroaching on Taiwan. Are we getting closer to another geo political event?

Traditional marriage and hate speech… Western society and culture continue to move further away from Judeo Christian values. Does God really have standards for “traditional” marriage? What does God say about same sex marriage and relationships? See Romans 1. Talk with God about it, He is the messenger.

This Week in Prophecy: Temple Mount, Jordan Divided?, Russia & Finland, Speaker Pelosi & Communion, MonkeyPox!

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 24, 2022 by paulthepoke

This Week in Prophecy:

The Jewish Temple is back in the news in the Jerusalem Post. The Temple is referred to as “The Address of God”. The article dives into the mathematical concept of The Golden Ratio or Fibonacci Sequence.

King Abdullah restricts the travel and communication of his half brother Crown Prince Hamza bin Hussein. All is not whole in the Hashemite Kingdom.

Russia blocks natural gas to Finland as Finland applies to NATO. Russia demands payments be made in rubles.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is banned from Communion by the archbishop of San Francisco because of her position on abortion. Speaker Pelosi is informed that she is sinning.

“As you have not publically repudiated your position on abortion, and continue to refer to your Catholic faith in justifying your position and to receive Holy Communion, that time has now come. Therefore, in light of my responsibility as the Archbishop of San Francisco to be ‘concerned for all the Christian faithful entrusted to [my] care’ (Code of Canon Law, can. 383, §1), by means of this communication I am hereby notifying you that you are not to present yourself for Holy Communion and, should you do so, you are not to be admitted to Holy Communion, until such time as you publically repudiate your advocacy for the legitimacy of abortion and confess and receive absolution of this grave sin in the sacrament of Penance.” -Archbishop of San Francisco, Salvatore Cordileone

Luke 21:11 There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.

Get ready, Monkey Pox is coming!!!

The Watchmen: Biden & Temple Mount, New President for UAE, Food Security Expansion, Russia & Ukraine, Finland Applies to NATO, Energy & Rubles, China Active in Pacific

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 16, 2022 by paulthepoke

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

Genesis 12:3 And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.

In this episode of The Watchmen, President Biden reaches out to Jordanian King Abdullah and discussed Temple Mount Security. A reminder, never a good idea to divide God’s land or capital.

The United Arab Emirates has a new president. Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan was elected president by a federal supreme council. He replaces his half brother, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed.

Revelation 6:6 And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

Food security continues to play an increasing role in our world. India will no longer export wheat. India is the world’s second largest producer. Three (Russia, Ukraine, India) of the top 10 wheat producers in the world will no longer export wheat. This accounts for 40-50% of the planet’s grain trade. This is a very big deal!!!

Iranian citizens have taken to the streets to protest the exploding price of basic staples. Grains and cooking oils have gone up 300% over the last week. In response, the government cut off the internet briefly.

Diesel supply shortages are starting to be a concern on the east coast of the United States. All of these things point to higher food and fuel costs.

Ukraine’s President Zelensky has been invited to the Davos Economic Forum scheduled for later this week. Zelensky appears to have the support of the world’s economic elite. More weapons please…

Democrat House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer made the following admission this past week on the floor of the House of Representatives. “It is unfortunate that in a time of war, we spend all the time blaming our own president.” So we are fighting a proxy war with the Russians.

Finland announces its intent to join NATO. Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan is not so sure about this move and a states Finland and Sweden are hot beds of terrorism. Russia promptly cuts off electricity to Finland.

It would appear Europe is starting to understand Putin a little more clearly. European companies, not sovereign countries, are opening accounts with Gazprom Bank to pay for natural gas in rubles. Mind you, this does not violate any European sanctions against Russia. No conflict of interest, move along.

Revelation 9:16 The number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them.

The People’s Republic of China is on the move in the Pacific. A Chinese aircraft carrier was spotted off the coast of Taiwan and Japan. A reconnaissance vessel was also spotted off the west coast of Australia. Plus, the Chinese are making end roads in the Solomon Islands. Australia responds with strong language to the Chinese.

This Week in Prophecy: Russia’s Lavrov & Hitler, Hamas to Moscow, More Sanctions for Russia, Turkey & Natural Gas Trade, Russians in Syria, Kushner & Saudis & Israelis

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 9, 2022 by paulthepoke

This Week in Prophecy:

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov claims Hitler had Jewish blood. The result was outrage from Israel.

Israel swears in first Muslim to the Supreme Court of the nation.

Hamas leaders flew to Moscow for an emergency meeting. Russian President Putin pledges full support to the Palestinians after skirmishes with Israeli security on the Temple Mount.

Current Russian military resources in Syria are reviewed. There has been a troop draw down since the beginning of the Ukraine invasion. Ezekiel 38 says Russia, along with others, will cover Israel like a cloud.

The United States, G7, and possibly Europe increase economic sanctions on Russia.

Bulgaria is looking to Turkey for natural gas since Russia has turned off the flow. What will Russia of Turkey? Turkey continues to ride the slippery fence in international affairs.

Jared Kushner is investing Saudi money in Israeli start up companies. Kushner wants to make sure the Saudis and his friend Mohammed bin Salman don’t miss out on these business opportunities.

The Watchmen: Temple Mount Control & Jordan, Abraham Accords Trade, Erdogan Travels to Saudi Arabia, Rublezone, Putin’s Surgery, Iranian Reach & Propaganda

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 2, 2022 by paulthepoke

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

In this episode of The Watchmen we look at Jordan wanting full control of the Temple Mount complex. Are we watching Jordan respond to regional pressure with regards to security of the Muslim religious sites? How does this relate to Ezekiel 38-39? Flags are flying on the Temple Mount during Ramadan. Who do these flags represent?

The United Arab Emirates are flying heavy transport planes in and out of Israel. It appears defense contracts are being fulfilled between the Abraham Accord countries. The concern is an increasingly hostile Iran with nuclear intentions.

President Recep Erdogan of Turkey travelled to Saudi Arabia this week for the first time in five years. Erdogan stated, “I see and believe that it is in our joint interest to boost our cooperation with Saudi Arabia in such areas as healthcare, energy, food security, agricultural technologies, defense industry and finance. It seems that we have significant potential particularly in renewable and green energy. We will hopefully discuss and thoroughly evaluate these issues.”

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps allegedly tried to assassinate an Israeli diplomat in Turkey. Iran is reaching out via Hezbollah around the globe including the British Virgin Islands with drug deals.

Russia is cutting off the flow of natural gas to European countries of Poland and Bulgaria who refuse to pay in rubles. However, the Rublezone has manifested with Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary who are agreeable to pay for natural gas in rubles.

Allegedly, Russian President Vladimir Putin is scheduled for cancer surgery in the near future. Fellow KGB comrade Nikolai Patrushev is picked to assume authority while Putin is under treatment. Putin is suspected to be managing Parkinson’s Disease and symptoms related to the progressive neurological disorder. Check out video and professional analysis of Putin’s physical condition.

Teaser alert… Food processing plants are catching fire around the United States. 18 plants have been affected in the last 6 months. More on this topic to come in future episodes of the Watchmen.

Lastly, nothing like a little Iranian Propaganda gong wrong. In preparation for Jerusalem Day, things don’t go as planned. This section of the Watchmen was brought to you by Beavis and Butthead. Sorry, we could not help ourselves. Deep down, grown men have a teenage boy inside of them!

The Watchmen: Temple Mount, Israeli & Russian Tension, Chinese Yuan, Cross of Christ, Russia & Sudan, US Middle East Policy

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

In this episode of The Watchmen we look at drama on the Temple Mount. In an opinion piece from the Jerusalem Post, a prominent Israeli Rabbi calls for the construction of the third Temple. Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid calls the maintenance of the status quo on the Temple Mount. Confused???

Tension continues to build between Russian and Israel. Ezekiel 38-39 tells us Russia will eventually turn on Israel. Russian President Vladimir Putin demands ownership of a Russian Orthodox Church in the Christian Quarter of Jerusalem.

Israel is adding the Chinese Yuan and cutting the United States dollar to their reserve holdings. The dollar continues to fall in global holdings.

Was a relic of the cross of Jesus Christ on the sunken Russian warship Moskva? If so, did the piece of the cross sink to the bottom of the Black Sea?

Russia’s Wagner Group is in Sudan. Russia wants a port on the Red Sea. Ezekiel’s gang continues to come together.

The Saudis are looking to the Chinese as a business partner. Will the Saudis conduct business dealings in the Chinese Yuan. What would the potential consequences be to the value of the US dollar? Can the Saudis trust the United States?

What is the current United States policy in the Middle East? History since the 2011 Arab Spring is reviewed.

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:

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

In this episode of The Watchmen we look at the destruction of Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus.

Mark 3:24-25 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.

Revelation 2:9 I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

Israel’s fractured coalition government is splintering. Coalition whip Idit Silman from Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s Yamina party announced she was joining the opposition led by Benjamin Netanyahu, allegedly.

Waves of terror from the Palestinians continue across Israel during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The Mosaic Law’s Spring Feast of Passover is set for later this week. Civil tension is growing.

Listen to the latest from the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Check out up to date situational maps from the region.

The ripple effects from the war are having economic implications. Turkey is experiencing historic inflation. Lebanon has declared bankruptcy.

China has locked down 25,000,000 in Shanghai due to a COVID 19 variant. People are starving. Supply chain disruptions are occurring in the world’s largest logistical port.

The chatter around the Iran Nuclear deal continues. What does the arrest of 2 men in Washington have to do with this? Where did they come from? Visas trace their activity back to Iran and Pakistan.

The Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, has received a vote of no confidence and has been ousted from power. Who is behind this? People are taking to the streets across Pakistan by the thousands protesting. Pakistan is home to the largest Shia population outside of Iran. Something smells fishy…

All of this and more from the Watchmen. Click on the link below for content and analysis.
