Hurricane Fiona is making land fall in Puerto Rico. Fiona was recently a named storm with sustained winds of around 80 mph. President Joe Biden has declared a state of emergency for Puerto Rico. This is a developing and breaking story…

Typhoon Nanmadol is making landfall in southwest Japan. This is one of the strongest storms on record to hit Japan. Winds are sustained at 150 mph.

More than 8 million people in southern and western Japan have been ordered to evacuate due to Typhoon Nanmadol. Local government officials across Japan sent NHK and others information about the orders that they had issued by 7 p.m. on Sunday. A level 5 alert, the highest on Japan’s disaster warning scale, was issued to more than 330,000 people in about 160,000 households in Kagoshima, Miyazaki and Oita prefectures. A total of nearly 8 million people in about 3.7 million households affected by a level 4 alert were ordered to evacuate in parts of the Kyushu, Shikoku and Chugoku regions.

James 2:14-17 What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

Zephaniah 2:4-5 For Gaza shall be deserted, and Ashkelon shall become a desolation; Ashdod’s people shall be driven out at noon, and Ekron shall be uprooted. Woe to you inhabitants of the seacoast, you nation of the Cherethites! The word of the LORD is against you, O Canaan, land of the Philistines; and I will destroy you until no inhabitant is left.

In this edition of The Watchmen… Operation Breaking Dawn was launched on August 5th against Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip. Islamic Jihad is an Iranian proxy. The leader of Islamic Jihad had visited Tehran within the week.

As of this post, over 600 rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip towards Israel.

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has reported the Palestinian Islamic Jihad leadership group has been martyred.

Ezekiel 38:1-6 Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. 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, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you.

Capital Flowing to the US Foreboding Further Conflict? War Drums are Beating! Taiwan-China???? Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , on August 6, 2022 by paulthepoke

Proverbs 22:3 The prudent see danger and take cover, but the simple keep going and suffer the consequences.

Proverbs 27:12 The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.

China PLA

Are we watching history repeat itself? Money is flowing into the United States. Hundreds of millions of dollars are pouring in. Why?

Taiwan Semiconductor is building 8 plants in the Phoenix area.

Capital always flows out of danger into safer locations. Prior to Russia invading Ukraine, Capital moved to the US. Is that starting again over the China-Taiwan issue?

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.

Power Outage in Taiwan, Internet Significantly Affected… Developing

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on March 2, 2022 by paulthepoke

Revelation 9:16 And the number of mounted troops was two hundred million; I heard their number.

Only two countries on the planet have the population to pull off this kind of military number, China or India…

Developing story out of Taiwan…

Senator Marco Rubio is the Vice Chairman of the Select Committee on Intelligence, and Ranking Member of the Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Transnational Crime, Civilian Security, Democracy, Human Rights, and Global Women’s Issues.

The capital of Taipei and the second largest city of Kaohsiung are without power.

The iPhone processor production hub of Tainan has also been affected. Tainan Science Park is also home to semiconductor TSMC, United Microelectronics and Foxconn display affiliate Innolux.

Currently, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is visiting Taiwan.

https://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Energy/Taiwan-hit-by-widespread-power-outages

China has just completed a 3 day naval exercise in the South China Sea. China’s Maritime Safety Administration indicated the drills would take place within 6 nautical miles from Taiwan.

https://www.aa.com.tr/en/asia-pacific/china-launches-military-drill-in-south-china-sea/2516923#

Previously, China says it is looking to “peacefully” unify Taiwan with the motherland.

Interesting confluence of events… May be nothing… Just reporting facts…

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.
