This Week in Prophecy

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

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz went on a secret trip to Singapore, but we are not supposed to know where he went…

Matthew 24:6-8 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains.

Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states removed Lebanese ambassadors from their countries and removed their ambassadors from Lebanon. Why? Because of supportive comments to the Houthis in Yemen.

India test fires nuclear capable missile with a range of 3,100 miles, China in the cross hairs.

The United States and the Saudis conducted naval drills. The Saudis have improved their propaganda game with intimidating music. The exercise was clearly aimed at Iran.

All of this and more in… This Week in Prophecy

This Week in Prophecy: Dead Sea Art, Rapture, China Hypersonic, Lebanon Civil War, Saudi’s & Iran

This Week in Prophecy

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

Artisans express their concern about potentially losing the Dead Sea. Their solution to draw attention to the cause, pose nude while painted in white as a reminder of Lot’s wife being turned to a pillar of salt.

Zechariah 14 says the Dead Sea is going no where. Eventually, the Dead Sea will come to life and flourish.

Scientists and researchers investigate a COVID 19 patient’s claim of a pending religious RAPTURE event. Scientists suggest COVID tricks the brain and impedes cognition.

China continues to talk about the reunification of Taiwan to the motherland as it tests its version of a hypersonic missile.

Lebanon is on the brink of another civil war. Hezbollah indicates its forces are larger than the current Lebanese Army. It has been a rough week in Lebanon with loss of electricity, chaos, and economic inflation.

Saudi Arabia and Iran appear to be willing to discuss the idea of normalizing relations. These two nations are in constant conflict and competition throughout the Middle East. Ezekiel 38 states Sheba and Dedan (modern day Saudi Arabia) will protest a future invasion of Israel from Russia, Iran, and others but ultimately do nothing.

The volcano on La Palma in the Canary Islands continues to erupt. Earthquakes are getting stronger and deeper. Concerns are this is not close to ending. Tsunami discussions are slowly increasing in frequency.

Saudis To Join Abraham Accords???

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Peace Plan, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 20, 2021 by paulthepoke

1 Thessalonians 5:3 While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

Scripture says “peace and security” covenants, deals, treaties (take your pick) are inevitable. These are signs of the end times scenario.

Things have been quiet on the “peace front” since Joe Biden has become President of the United States… until now.

Multiple reports are coming out of Israel and Arab news sources. The Biden Administration has reached out to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS). In September 2021, White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan went to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and discussed the idea with MBS. In October, Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud went to Washington to meet with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken. The pitch is for Saudi Arabia to join the Abraham Accords.

Other countries appear to be lining up to possibly join the Abraham Accords. These include: The island nation of Comoros, Tunisia, Oman, Qatar, and Malaysia.

Keep in mind, Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka were in Jerusalem last week as the Abraham Accords caucus was initiated in the Israeli Knesset.

Foreign Minister Yair Lapid was at the event and made the following statement.

“We renewed relations with Egypt, we opened embassies, we improved our relations with the US. I call upon the Palestinians, and every Arab nation that is listening: We seek peace. Peace is not a compromise or a weakness but rather an embodiment of the human spirit. Those living in the Middle East are welcome to look around and see which countries are in a better position — those who seek peace, or those who seek war.”

Israeli Foreign Minister Lapid was in Washington at the same time as Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud…

Locust Update: Winter 2021

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

Joel 1:4 What the gnawing locust has left, the swarming locust has eaten; and what the swarming locust has left, the creeping locust has eaten; and what the creeping locust has left, the stripping locust has eaten.

Granted, the context of Joel 1 is the land of Israel. The prophet is giving us a preview into the future of the Promised Land.

United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)

East Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, January 2021: As if COVID-19 was not enough. The spawn and spread of locust swarms are growing again. Kenyan officials indicate this is the worst outbreak in 70 years. Increased rainfall is being blamed as part of the reason for the outbreak.

The United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is on location with updates.

“We saw very intense rainfall in areas of northeastern (Kenya), where normally it’s very dry. Normally there would be nothing there for locusts to feed on. They wouldn’t be able to survive there for long. But that wasn’t the case last year. And you got so much fodder which the locusts were able to feed on, and they were able to breed.” -Hamisi Williams, FAO Deputy, Kenya 

Experts state locusts can multiply x20 over the course of 3 months.

The following quotes are from Keith Cressman, FAO Sr. Locust Forecasting Officer.

“The other thing is that they have this great capacity to migrate. So they don’t get stuck in areas when conditions dry out. They just simply pick up and move to greener pastures. They fly with the wind and can travel more than 100 miles in a day.”

“They can easily cross the Red Sea so they can go from Sudan to Saudi Arabia in a day, for example. They can easily cross from northern Somalia directly across the Indian Ocean to India and Pakistan.”

“Imagine a swarm the size of Manhattan in New York, which is not a very big swarm. That single swarm in one day will eat the same amount of food as everybody in New York and California.” -Keith Cressman, FAO Sr. Locust Forecasting Officer

FAO Deputy Director-General Laurent Thomas stated, “The last time Africa saw an upsurge of locusts approaching this scale, in the Sahel, it took two years and more than $500 million to bring under control. This (current) upsurge was even bigger, but East Africa is poised to end it, provided governments can keep those aircraft flying.”

By the way, they need $40 million more…

https://www.npr.org/2021/01/19/958543535/locust-swarms-threaten-parts-of-east-africa

The swarms are moving closer to Israel. Locust plagues in Israel are a sign of the end of days per the prophet Joel. Just another sign of the times…

Proverbs 30:27 …the locusts have no king, yet all of them march in rank…

Breaking: Saudi Oil Refineries Under Attack, September 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Saudi Arabia/Sheba/Dedan, Trend Update with tags , , , on September 14, 2019 by paulthepoke

Buqayq, Saudia Arabia, September 14, 2019: The Saudis have reduced their oil supply output by half. 5.7 million barrels of oil per day have been stopped. 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas distribution has been affected as well. 10% of the world’s oil supply is estimated to go through this network in northeast Saudi Arabia.

This is a developing story and is highly likely to affect everyone’s pocketbook at the pump.

“For the oil market, if not the global economy, Abqaiq is the single most valuable piece of real estate on planet earth,” Bob McNally, Rapid Energy Group in Washington.

10 drone strikes on oil processing plants have caused large scale explosions and fires.

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/saudi-aramco-contain-fires-facilities-053230653.html

Isaiah 21:16-17 For thus the Lord said to me, “Within a year, according to the years of a hired worker, all the glory of Kedar will come to an end. And the remainder of the archers of the mighty men of the sons of Kedar will be few, for the LORD, the God of Israel, has spoken.”

The following peoples and their descendants make up Arabia per the prophets: Dedan, Tema, and Kedar.

Scripture is very clear. At some point in the future, the Saudis are going to get pummeled. Isaiah bears witness and confirms their fate.

Trend Update: Saudi Arabia & Israel Strengthen Ties, April 2018

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Saudi Arabia/Sheba/Dedan, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on April 5, 2018 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:13 Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish with all its villages will say to you, ‘Have you come to capture spoil? Have you assembled your company to seize plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to capture great spoil?

Who are Sheba and Dedan? They are first mentioned in Genesis 10:7 The sons of Cush were Seba and Havilah and Sabtah and Raamah and Sabteca; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan.

The family tree starts with Noah, then his son Ham, then his son Cush, then his son Raamah and his sons Sheba and Dedan.

Historically, per Strong’s Concordance and NET Bible, Raamah settled in the southwest of the Arabian Peninsula. Sheba settled in the southern Arabian Peninsula. Dedan settled in the northern Arabian Peninsula. These areas make up what is modern day Saudi Arabia.

Dedan was an ancient capital of Saudi Arabia. It is modern day Al Ula in northwest Saudi Arabia.

Seba-Dedan2

April 2, 2018: The Saudi crown prince and king to be, Mohammed bin Salman, has declared Israel has a right to exist.

“I believe that each people, anywhere, has a right to live in their peaceful nation. I believe the Palestinians and the Israelis have the right to have their own land. But we have to have a peace agreement to assure the stability for everyone and to have normal relations,” Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Bin Salman also made the following incredible statements.

“Our country doesn’t have a problem with Jews. Our Prophet Muhammad married a Jewish woman. Not just a friend — he married her. Our prophet, his neighbors were Jewish. You will find a lot of Jews in Saudi Arabia coming from America, coming from Europe. There are no problems between Christian and Muslims and Jews. We have problems like you would find anywhere in the world, among some people. But the normal sort of problems.” 

Many believe the cooperation with Israel is about the management of Iran. Israel and Saudi Arabia see Iran as a mortal threat. Iran is supplying rebels in Yemen with missiles which are being launched into Saudi Arabia. The Crown Prince did not have kind comments for Iranian leadership. He specifically addressed Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic.

According to bin Salman, the Ayatollah “makes Hitler look good.”

“Hitler didn’t do what the supreme leader is trying to do. Hitler tried to conquer Europe. This is bad. But the supreme leader is trying to conquer the world. He believes he owns the world. They are both evil guys. He is the Hitler of the Middle East. In the 1920s and 1930s, no one saw Hitler as a danger. Only a few people. Until it happened. We don’t want to see what happened in Europe happen in the Middle East. We want to stop this through political moves, economic moves, intelligence moves. We want to avoid war.” -Mohammed bin Salman

Have you come to capture spoil? Have you assembled your company to seize plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to capture great spoil? Yes, Russia (as they see it) has economic reason to invade Israel.

Ezekiel 38:13 says Sheba and Dedan (modern day Saudi Arabia) along with Tarshish (loosely Europe) will object and protest against Russia and its surrogates.

Lines are being drawn in the sands of the Middle East. Countries are in alignment according to Ezekiel’s prophecy.

Destiny waits, but for how long…

Trend Update: Saudi Crown Prince and King in Waiting, Mohammed bin Salman

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?’

The winds of change are blowing on the Arabian Peninsula. Allow me to introduce the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammad bin Salman. MBS is how he is known in the press. Bin Salman is the king in waiting for Saudi Arabia.

December 7, 2017: Press reports indicate MBS is the likely buyer of a Da Vinci painting of Jesus Christ. He is believed to have paid $450 million for the painting.

December 19, 2017: Saudi Arabia looks to issue travel visas to the kingdom for the first time in history. Visas are expected in early 2018. Previously, only work visas were issued and permitted.

Please watch the video below. It is in conjunction with Trey Smith’s God in a Nutshell Project. https://godinanutshell.com/

Learn more about the Saudi king to be, Mohammed bin Salman and his actions as a reformer. MBS looks to moderate the Islamic kingdom.

It would appear Israel and the Saudis are looking to establish friendly relations. Israel believes MBS can help bring peace to the Holy Land. Both countries have one thing in common. They are deeply concerned about a nuclear Iran and what that means to the region.

The prophet Ezekiel in chapters 38-39 details the moves of Saudi Arabia when Russian and allies look to invade Israel. They do nothing when it comes to the protection of Israel.

Trend Update: Saudi Crown Prince Declares War on Terror, November 2017

Posted in Prophecy, Saudi Arabia/Sheba/Dedan, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on November 29, 2017 by paulthepoke

Daniel 11:40 At the time of the end, the king of the south shall attack him…

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia: The Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, has declared war on terrorism. The king in waiting has promised to “wipe terrorists from the face of the earth”.

“Beyond the killing of innocent people and the spread of hatred, terrorism and extremism distort the image of our religion.” -Mohammed bin Salman (MBS)

The prince (MBS) is the Saudi Defense Minister. MBS founded the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition in 2015. Some have dubbed this group as the “Arab NATO”. There are 41 countries that comprise the coalition. The group is primarily a Sunni Muslim organization. Some of the countries included are Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Afghanistan, Uganda, Somalia, Mauritania, Lebanon, Libya, Yemen and Turkey. Excluded is the Shia country Iran and its allies from Iraq and Syria.

IMCT

The purpose of the alliance is to “mobilize and coordinate the use of resources, facilitate the exchange of information and help member countries build their own counter-terrorism capacity.” Pakistani General Raheel Sharif, Commander in Chief.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5118615/Saudi-vows-new-Islamic-alliance-wipe-terrorists-earth.html#ixzz4zjvUtu66

 

Granted, MBS is not a king at this time. He is promised to be the next king of Saudi Arabia. Multiple stories have emerged stating he is to be appointed king any day.

The crown prince has found favor with the United States and President Donald Trump. The Saudis have recently signed a $110 billion arms agreement to modernize their military.

mbs

Mohammed bin Salman is the youngest Defense Minister in the world at age 32. MBS is also in charge of the country’s oil industry. Self-control and temperament are considerations. He is known as a military hawk. He has already engaged in a war of words with Iran. MBS is strongly opposed to the expansion of the Shia brand of Islam supported by Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah.

For their part, Iran sees the young crown prince and his leadership group as “idiots”.

“We are a primary target for the Iranian regime…We won’t wait for the battle to be in Saudi Arabia. Instead, we’ll work so that the battle is for them in Iran,” Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi king in waiting.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jun/25/mohammed-bin-salman-saudi-heir-young-hothead-with-ambitions

 

Is the crown prince the promised king of the South per Daniel 11:40? He has recently consolidated his power. MBS arrested family members along with local authorities in the name of government corruption. At age 32, it appears bin Salman is going to be around for a while. MBS does merit our attention considering the times we live.

Time will tell…
