On This Week in Prophecy… After 130 plus aftershocks and counting, two devastating earthquakes of 7.5 and 7.8 magnitude, the Ataturk Dam on the Euphrates River has multiple cracks. Experts have expressed concern and warning.

According to Athens News out of Greece, “there are many cracks in the dam after strong earthquakes.

Turkish Professor of Seismology Dr. Nasi Göryur, “I appeal to stakeholders: check the dams in the region.

The Ataturk Dam is the 3rd largest dam in the world.

As of this post, there have been over 7,900 deaths along tens of thousands of injuries. Injuries in Turkey alone are approaching 35,000. Preliminary estimates have these numbers increasing dramatically as time passes due to weather and availability of rescue efforts.

Thousands of buildings have collapsed and continue to collapse with subsequent aftershocks.

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov announced Iran will be involved in the peace process between Syria and Turkey.

Both Russia, Iran and Turkey are part of the Astana trio, which is engaged in the Syrian settlement. Therefore, I consider it absolutely logical that additional contacts dedicated to promoting the normalization of Turkish-Syrian relations should be accompanied by Russia and Iran.

The Jerusalem Post recently quoted the Wall Street Journal. Russia and Iran have decided to construct an Iranian drone manufacturing plant in Russia. Iran recently had a drone plant destroyed due to surgical Israeli drone strikes, allegedly…

Production is scheduled to begin in months. This apparently was agreed up in November 2022. But due to recent events, the timeline has been escalated. It is estimated 6,000 drones could be made for Russia for involvement in Ukraine.

On This Week in Prophecy: Over the weekend, Iran has been under a coordinated attack. According to various outlets, Israel and the United States are suspected.

Iran says the damage was limited and drones were shot down.

https://www.iranintl.com/en/202301282372

Russia is likely to turn to Turkey for drones as their supply from Iran appears to be interrupted. These events appear to only harden the relationship between Russia and Israel.

Quakes in various places… Amidst the back drop of the explosions across Iran, a large earthquake in northwest Iran caused significant damage in both Iran and Turkey.

This Week in Prophecy: World Economic Forum, Russia Military Build, IRGC Terrorists, Jesus Saves

On This Week in Prophecy… The world’s richest, brilliant, and morally elite descended on and graced Davos, Switzerland. The World Economic Forum held its annual meetings and projected its plans for the planet.

Listen to what these people are saying. This is not a back room conspiracy. Their views are out in the public for all to hear. There is no hiding their agenda. They are telling us their intentions. The plan is global in scale.

Founder Klaus Schwab encouraged all who attended to “Master the Future”.

Former Vice President Al Gore along with Colombian President Urrego discussed climate change. Here are some quotes.

“Capitalism helped create” global warming and our state of “global anarchy.”

“Humanity must overcome capitalism in order that we can live in our planet.”

Acts 10:13,15 Then a voice said to him: “Get up, Peter, kill and eat!” The voice spoke to him a second time: “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.”

Members of the World Economic Forum have declared war on eating meat.

By the way, God says it is okay to eat meat.

The World Economic Forum wants a global database for who has been vaccinated and who has not. Former Prime Minister Tony Blair expresses his views on the issue.

And here is their view of entertainment…

LISTEN TO THESE PEOPLE AND THEIR WORDS. THEY ARE SERIOUS!

1 John 4:1-3 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

The verses above from John are great spiritual detectives. Who is really with and for Jesus Christ.

I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia…

Welcome to The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world go by.

On this edition of the Watchmen…

Cardinal George Pell has been identified as the author of a document critical of Pope Francis. Was Cardinal Pell treated fairly by the Roman Catholic Church? Cardinal Pell was a central figure in a child sex abuse case. This is sensitive and messy. Do your own homework.

Exodus 30:13-16 This is what everyone who is numbered shall give: half a shekel according to the shekel of the sanctuary (the shekel is twenty gerahs), half a shekel as a contribution to the Lord. Everyone who is numbered, from twenty years old and over, shall give the contribution to the Lord. The rich shall not pay more and the poor shall not pay less than the half shekel, when you give the contribution to the Lord to make atonement for yourselves. You shall take the atonement money from the sons of Israel and shall give it for the service of the tent of meeting, that it may be a memorial for the sons of Israel before the Lord, to make atonement for yourselves.”

Ezekiel 38:10-12 “Thus says the Lord GOD: On that day, thoughts will come into your mind, and you will devise an evil scheme and say, ‘I will go up against the land of unwalled villages. I will fall upon the quiet people who dwell securely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having no bars or gates,’ to seize spoil and carry off plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places that are now inhabited, and the people who were gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell at the center of the earth.

Will Israel expand its drilling program in the Mediterranean Sea? Europe is starving for a new source of natural gas. Israel continues to search for more energy resources in the Mediterranean. The Knesset Research Center believes Israel could provide 900 billion cubic meters of gas per year.

Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

This is the first commandment given to humanity. Have sex and produce children, lots of ’em! Three times!

  1. Be fruitful
  2. Multiply
  3. Fill the earth

460,000,000/8,000,000,000 = 0.0575

The World Economic Forum is recommending approximately a 95% reduction of the population. This is not a conspiracy theory. These are public statements and open forums. Listen to their words. This recommendation is not in line with God’s mandate to Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. This agenda is evil.

Luke 21:11b …and in various places famines and pestilences. -Jesus

Dr. Eric Ding is sounding the alarm. A new COVID variant is emerging, XBB 1.5 or #XBB15 on Twitter. Dr. Ding is an epidemiologist & health economist. He spent 16 years at Harvard.

The following is from Wikipedia.

Eric Liang Feigl-Ding (born March 28, 1983) is an American public health scientist who is currently an epidemiologist and Chief of COVID Task Force at the New England Complex Systems Institute. He was formerly a faculty member and researcher at Harvard Medical School and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. He is also the Chief Health Economist for Microclinic International, and co-founder of the World Health Network.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Feigl-Ding

Dr. Ding is calling out the CDC for being asleep at the wheel with the latest COVID variant.

Separate from what is emerging in the United States and England, China is getting hammered by a significant COVID outbreak. Experts estimate up to 9,000 deaths per day with infections up to an estimated 18,600,000 people.

Airfinity is a United Kingdom health data firm.

Airfinity expects China’s Covid infections to reach their first peak on 13 January with 3.7m cases a day. Airfinity expects deaths to peak on 23 January with about 25,000 a day, with cumulative deaths reaching 584,000 since December.

On This Week in Prophecy… We have an operational update on the happenings in Ukraine. Russia is struggling to make gains. Ukraine continues to push the Russians out of their country. Russia has devastated utility services within Ukraine. Missile strikes have rendered the majority of the country without electricity. Basic provisions such as heat and water are being hit hard. Winter is beginning to set in…

Ezekiel 38:3-6 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. Persia, Cush, and Put are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

Turkey and Iran have discovered something they both have in common. They both have declared war on “terrorists” as they see it, the Kurds.

Turkey wants to be an energy hub partnering with Moscow, and Iran is selling drones to Moscow. Economics ties Turkey and Iran to Moscow. In this respect, they have a common policy, but not necessarily a policy that is solely anti-Kurdish. The end result is that Kurds are victims and pay the price for the Ankara-Tehran partnership.

Revelation 6:6 And I heard what sounded like a voice from among 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.”

The Dutch government is looking to purchase 3,000 farms and industrial polluters. Farmers are in the crosshairs for environmental violations. The crime, ammonia and nitrogen oxide emissions exceed EU law.

“For agricultural entrepreneurs, there will be a stopping scheme that will be as attractive as possible. For industrial peak polluters, we will get to work with a tailor-made approach and in tightening permits. After a year, we will see if this has achieved enough.” -Christianne van der Wal, Nitrogen Minister

Netanyahu’s Government & Regional Energy Policy… Czekmate

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 14, 2022 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:10-12 Thus says the Lord God: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: You (Gog) will say, “I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land…”

With God’s help, Bibi can walk this tightrope. But now, at least the formation of the government hurdle is past the President’s office.

Many important strategic decisions will shake out of this. Regional allies (crazy age we live in that one can type that with respect to Israel) want to see a muscular, assertive Israel that acts with dignity. These would be the Abraham Accord partners. Rumor has it that if another weak Lapid like coalition government had come out of the elections that the Saudis would have continued fence sitting. The same set of speculation to Czekmate holds that with a reliably strong leader like Netanyahu, the Saudis are disposed to negotiating a more durable peace with Israel.

What is even more fascinating is that in partnership with Israel, the Arabs are prepared to go their own way on economic redundancies.

Much of the world’s energy must cross through three maritime choke points:
– the Strait of Hormuz, where the Persian Gulf empties to the Indian ocean;
– the Strait of Bab al Mandeb, where the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean meet;
– the Suez Canal, joining the Mediterranean and Red Seas.

In the cases of Hormuz and Bab Al Mandeb, there are Iranian direct or proxy military hazards to free navigation. In Egypt, which is the custodian of the Suez Canal, there is a stirring of the Muslim Brotherhood within the country.

Among western oriented Arab elite, there is growing doubt over the attenuated strength of the US Navy and it’s enduring strategy to keep maritime sea-lanes and choke points open.

The remedy, since the Briben administration came into office, has been to work bilaterally with a strong Israel. But alas, they’ve had a downright epicene (and corrupt) specimen of a government in Jerusalem under Lapid. There was not much upon which to predicate a reliable diplomatic/economic partnership. Netanyahu’s success renews a dynamic that again invites serious, durable changes to the national economic postures of all concerned.

The credible rumor of what is ahead went on, that Saudi Arabia would be more inclined to negotiate a permanent peace with attendant economic measures. This includes, major capital investments in partnership with the UAE to build pipeline infrastructure from the Persian Gulf to the Israeli coast for onward export. This would bypass all three maritime chokepoints, diminishing the growing Iranian influence in all three places and hedge against the absence of a robust and ubiquitous US Navy upholding it’s tacit obligation to enforce freedom of navigation in those places.

Solution wise, is this a panacea? No. It presents a whole new set of problems.

Having Israeli gas online in concert with overland energy flows, you are now talking a supra-national energy output to Europe that rivals Russia. Russia and Iran have become more symbiotic than ever, especially since the Ukrainian mis-adventure. More on that at another time perhaps.

In the meantime, keeping an eye on Israeli government formation is the mission of the day.

United Kingdom Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has changed his mind. Previously in August of 2022, Sunak indicated he sees Jerusalem as “Israel’s historic capital” in front of a Conservative Friends of Israel event.

Sunak had also publicly stated, “To me, it’s indisputably the historic capital… it seems to me that there is a very strong case to it, to recognize what is a historic and practical step. It would be something where we’d be acting in concert with our allies in the region and, in general, one of our closest allies, so it’s something I’d like to do.”

But now, “there are no current plans to change the location of our embassy.”

Russia appears to be using rape as a military strategy.

“When women are held for days and raped, when you start to rape little boys and men, when you see a series of genital mutilations, when you hear women testify about Russian soldiers equipped with Viagra, it’s clearly a military strategy. And when the victims report what was said during the rapes, it is clearly a deliberate tactic to dehumanize the victims.”

Seven million plus Ukrainians have left the country since the beginning of the war.
