This Week in Prophecy

A 2,000 year old silver coin was found in the City of David south of the modern day Temple Mount area.

Australia steps up its effort to combat COVID 19 with Quarantine Camps. Listen to commentary from public officials themselves and government websites.

Australia sent troops to the Solomon Islands to assist in the restoration of order. Australia looks to restore calm amid tension with the Chinese over Taiwan.

Israel continues to establish military and security ties with nations of the Abraham Accords. This time, Morocco is in the news with the Jewish state.

Russia had another busy week in international affairs. The Russians have begun to mass produce their hypersonic missile. Putin has also moved 94,000 troops with equipment to the Ukraine border. Is an invasion on the table? The UN mediator for the pending Libyan elections has resigned? What is going on and who stands to benefit from this move? I dare say Russia and Vladimir Putin.

The United States placed sanctions on the Nord Stream pipeline. What??? Perplexing and confusing policy coming from the Biden Administration.

President Recep Erdogan of Turkey demonstrates he has no idea how to run an economy. Erdogan supports interest rate cuts to a failing and weakening Lira. And the currency continues to go down in value which results in more inflation.

Luke 21:11a There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences…

The Omicron variant of COVID is introducing itself on the scene globally. Experts on the scene report the variant to be “extremely mild”. This is not what you will here in the main stream press.

Peru experienced a 7.5 earthquake…

Sanhedrin to Prepare Holy Oil for Messiah

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 10, 2021 by paulthepoke

Exodus 30:22-25 The LORD said to Moses, “Take the finest spices: of liquid myrrh 500 shekels, and of sweet-smelling cinnamon half as much, that is, 250, and 250 of aromatic cane, and 500 of cassia, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, and a hin of olive oil. And you shall make of these a sacred anointing oil blended as by the perfumer; it shall be a holy anointing oil.

The Sanhedrin is getting ready for the arrival of the Messiah. As part of the preparations, anointing oil is being made.

https://www.israel365news.com/201272/sanhedrin-begins-to-prepare-oil-to-anoint-king-messiah-kohen-gadol/

The announcement was made on the Temple Mount in a sermon by the Spokesman of the Sanhedrin, Rabbi Hillel Weiss.

“The Temple and the Temple service benefit all the nations. For that reason, we made the announcement on the 27th of Cheshvan, the day that Noah exited the ark and made a sacrifice to God. At that time, God made a covenant with the entire world, promising never to bring another such catastrophic flood but also requiring that mankind (nations) perform the Seven Noahide Laws.”

“Christianity is especially susceptible to the impurity that is flourishing under the idolatry of liberalism. To their credit, they have a deep connection with chesed (loving kindness). Liberalism grew out of this. But chesed can be taken too far. Christianity must engage in justice which is one of the Noahide commandments. They must judge that some things are impure and unacceptable.”

In the passages from Exodus 23 describing the oil, the oil is described as holy six times. The Hebrew word for “holy” is qodesh. It means apart or sacred, separate. This is the same word used to describe the Spirit of God in the Old Testament. That is the Holy Spirit.

The Sanhedrin is following the directions of Moses as given by the LORD. Here is the composition of the anointing oil as understood by the modern day Sanhedrin.

1 kg = 2.2 pounds

  • Pure myrrh, 500 shekels weight (about 6 kg)
  • Sweet cinnamon, 250 shekels weight (about 3 kg)
  • “fragrant cane” (sometimes translated as calamus) 250 shekels (about 3 kg)
  • Cassia, 500 shekels (about 6 kg)
  • Specially prepared olive oil, one hin (about 6 liters, or 5.35 kg or about 1.5 gallons)

~

Exodus 30:33 Whoever compounds any like it or whoever puts any of it on an outsider shall be cut off from his people.

This oil is not to be reproduced by anybody for personal use. The would be perpetrator would pay a severe price. They would be “cut off” or karath in the Hebrew. This is the same verb used to describe Jesus the Messiah in Daniel 9:26. Jesus fulfilled this prophecy on the cross when He was “cut off”.

Daniel 9:26a Then after the sixty-two weeks, the Messiah (Anointed One, Mashiach) will be cut off (karath) and have nothing…

~

Additionally, the Sanhedrin has prepared ritually pure olive oil for the Menorah.

“We are now entering the time when the preparations for the Temple are almost complete. Now is the time for people to act, to show whether they will be part of the Temple or stand against the reappearance of God’s house in Jerusalem.” Rabbi Weiss, Sanhedrin Spokesman

Jewish Prayer Legal on Temple Mount

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , on October 7, 2021 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 2:2-4 It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be lifted up above the hills; and all the nations shall flow to it, and many peoples shall come, and say: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob, that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations, and shall decide disputes for many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.

October 6, 2021: Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court Judge Bilha Yahalom rescinded a restraining order that was given to Rabbi Aryeh Lipo last Yom Kippur for praying silently on the Temple Mount.

The following statements were given by Judge Yahalom.

“The appellant (Rabbi Lipo) is on the Temple Mount on a daily basis and is familiar with the accepted procedures at the place, and indeed admits that he prayed there. In this sense, it is clear why the respondent (Israel Police, DI) is apprehensive and why it ordered the removal. On the other hand, it is precisely his daily arrival at the Temple Mount that indicates that this is a matter of principle and substance for him.”

“The video I reviewed shows that the appellant was standing in a corner with a friend or two next to him, there’s no crowd around him, his prayer was silent, a whisper. On the face of it, I did not find that external and visible signs of religious activity were carried out by the appellant.”

“The respondent does not dispute that the appellant, like many others, prays on a daily basis on the Temple Mount, and this activity in itself does not violate police instructions.”

How is the coalition of change government going to handle this decision? The coalition consists of Orthodox Jews, far left socialists, a Muslim from the Ra’am Party…

How are people going to respond? The Temple Mount is a very sensitive piece of real estate.

Tisha B`Av/9th of Av, 5781/ 2021

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 15, 2021 by paulthepoke

Tisha b’Av:  To the Jew, this is a date, the 9th of Av.

Av is a Hebrew month. It is the 11th month of the civil calendar or the 5th month of the religious calendar. The date usually occurs during July or August on the Gregorian calendar. The month of Av is not named in the Bible.

This year, the 9th of Av begins at sunset on Saturday, July 17, 2021 and ends at sunset on Sunday, July 18 on the Gregorian calendar.

The 9th of Av is a day of mourning in Israel. Tragedy came about because of the account of Numbers 13-14. This event occurred immediately after God had delivered Israel out of bondage in Egypt.

The short story is the Lord told Moses to send a group of spies to go scout the Promised Land. The spies came back and proclaimed the Jews could not take the land because of the inhabitants of the land were too big and too strong. The people rebelled against Moses. The people stated they would rather go back to Egypt. The nation (except Caleb and Joshua) did not believe God to give them the Promised Land.

Numbers 13:20 …and whether the land is rich or poor, and whether there are trees in it or not. Be of good courage and bring some of the fruit of the land.” Now the time was the season of the first ripe grapes.

We know it occurred during the grape harvest per the text (Numbers 13:20). This event is said to have occurred on the 9th of Av. God pronounced judgment on the nation at that time. And this date is said to be a reminder of nation Israel’s lack of faith in God.

Historically, the date has been challenging for the Jewish people.

Here is a list of Jewish history on the 9th of Av/Tisha B `Av.

  1. 586 BC, the first Temple was destroyed.
  2. 70 AD, the second Temple was destroyed.
  3. 135 AD, Betar fell. It was the last fortress to hold out against the Romans during the Bar Kochba revolt.
  4. 136 AD, one year after the fall of Betar, the Temple area was plowed.
  5. 1290 AD, Jews were expelled from England.
  6. 1492 AD, King Ferdinand of Spain issued the expulsion decree, setting Tisha B’Av as the final date by which not a single Jew would be allowed to walk on Spanish soil.
  7. 1914 AD, World War I began the downward slide to the Holocaust.
  8. 2005 AD, Israel turns over the Gaza Strip.

Recently, the Temple Institute has chosen to look to the future and the promise of the building of the third Temple on Tisha B`Av or 9th of Av. They have chosen to post videos of the reconstruction of the third Temple. This year is no different.

Below is a video and commentary from the Temple Institute. Rebuild the Temple…

https://templeinstitute.org

Commentary below from the Temple Institute:

A hot cup of coffee, a glance at the internet, a leisurely morning – what could we possibly be missing? Why the Holy Temple, of course! Time for all of us, not just the kohanim (Temple priests) to get up and get to work – rebuilding the Holy Temple in our day!

Be part of the action!

A big shout out to Samara and to Yosef and his amazing crew and our great actors for making this video shine!

Special thanks to Dena Davies of Debu Designs for the beautiful priestly garment!

Note: In the days of the Holy Temple the kohanim on duty sleep and get dressed each morning in the Beit HaMoked on the Temple Mount. Depicting a kohen getting dressed at home and carpooling to the Holy Temple was for illustrative purposes, only!

Temple Mount on Fire, Netanyahu Vows to Respond

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gaza Strip/Philistia, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on May 10, 2021 by paulthepoke

May 10, 2021: It has been a busy day in Jerusalem. Today marks the third day of clashes with violence between Israeli forces and Muslim worshippers. Ramadan closes on Wednesday, May 12th at sunset. Hundreds more were injured in the violence. As Muslims shot fireworks at Israeli forces, trees on the Temple Mount caught fire near the Al Aqsa Mosque near the south end of the holy site.

The Israeli National Holiday of Jerusalem Day took place. Jerusalem Day celebrates the reunification of Jerusalem. The holiday marks the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City post the June 1967 Six-Day War. State ceremonies and memorial services were held throughout the day.

Hamas in the Gaza Strip took the opportunity to launch rockets and missiles into Israel including Jerusalem. Rocket sirens blared throughout the capital. This was the first time since 2014 sirens were heard in Jerusalem.

Israel’s leadership did not take kindly to the incursions. Israeli Defense Forces Spokesman Jonathan Conricus issued a statement on the current status.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu indicated, “Israel would respond with great force… the current conflict could continue for some time.”

Hamas claimed responsibility for the rocket attacks on Israel and Jerusalem. Hamas had given a 6 p.m. deadline for Israel to withdraw from the Al Aqsa Mosque. Hamas responded with their deadline crossed.

Isaiah 51:5 My righteousness is near, My salvation has gone forth, and My arms will judge the peoples; the coastlands will wait for Me, and they will wait expectantly for My arm.

Shavuot/Pentecost/Feast of Weeks, 5781/2021

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Spring Feasts, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on May 9, 2021 by paulthepoke

Leviticus 23:15-16 ‘You shall also count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath, from the day when you brought in the sheaf of the wave offering; there shall be seven complete Sabbaths. You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath; then you shall present a new grain offering to the Lord.

On a Gregorian calendar in the year of 2021, the holiday of Shavuot/Feast of Weeks/Pentecost begins at sunset on Sunday, May 16th. The God Appointed holiday ends at sunset Tuesday, May 18th. The Feast takes place in the month of Sivan on the 6th and 7th of a Hebrew calendar. This is the Hebrew year 5781.

Shavuot is one of the three holidays where Jewish men are required to come to Jerusalem (Exodus 23:14-17). The men were to make their presentation and sacrifice before God at the Temple.

Exodus 23:14-17 “Three times in the year you shall keep a feast to me. You shall keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread. As I commanded you, you shall eat unleavened bread for seven days at the appointed time in the month of Abib, for in it you came out of Egypt. None shall appear before me empty-handed. You shall keep the Feast of Harvest, of the firstfruits of your labor, of what you sow in the field. You shall keep the Feast of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you gather in from the field the fruit of your labor. Three times in the year shall all your males appear before the Lord GOD.

We are one week out from the fourth of seventh God appointed holidays. Tensions are running high in Jerusalem, specifically on the Temple Mount.

May 8, 2021: The Muslims are about to complete their month long holiday of Ramadan on the evening of Wednesday, May 12th. Palestinians and Muslims have made their way to the Temple Mount to worship at the Al Aqsa Mosque. There is an estimated 75,000 to 100,000 worshippers attending the events. Upwards of 200+ Palestinians have been injured according to various estimates.

Today marks the second day of confrontation between Muslim worshippers and the Israeli forces. Israel claims the Palestinians initiated the violence by throwing rocks and shooting fireworks at Israeli security.

“Israel is acting responsibly to ensure respect for law and order in Jerusalem while allowing freedom of worship,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Palestinians are upset over the looming eviction of families from disputed neighborhoods in East Jerusalem.

Passover Sacrifice Reenactment Near Temple Mount, Nisan 10, 5781

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Spring Feasts, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on March 25, 2021 by paulthepoke

Exodus 12:3 Tell all the congregation of Israel that on the tenth day of this month every man shall take a lamb according to their fathers’ houses, a lamb for a household.

Dung Gate, Jerusalem, Nisan 10, 5781: Attitudes are changing. In the past, public Passover activities were viewed as agitation to the Muslims. Today, an attitude of acceptance is growing.

Assaf Fried, Spokesman, Temple Organizations had the following comments regarding the events.

“He (police officer) was enthusiastic that it should take place. He pressed me to make sure it happened. I was shocked because I remember when we operated as an underground movement. Even more impressive was that he referred to it as the ‘Korban Pesach’.”

“The police and the Jerusalem municipality now view this as another totally acceptable public happening, an event they would like to see take place. But the amazing thing is they actually refer to in terms of the Temple service. The reenactments were intended for the Kohanim to practice but it has had a profound effect on the less religious segments of Israel. The officials see that it is run properly, does not lead to incitement, and they are getting used to it, Even the mainstream media has begun to accept the event as something other than extremist. They are all beginning to accept that the Temple Service is not a crazy idea, that it is an acceptable aspect of modern Israel.”

“It seems clear that one day, sooner than we imagine, there will be the same event but a few hundred meters to the north, on the Temple Mount, and no one will think it is a crazy extremist event. In truth, it shouldn’t be since anyone who reads the Bible knows about this and it took place for thousands of years.”

The reenactment included the use of the silver horns. A lamb was roasted but not publicly sacrificed. The government did not grant permission for the sacrifice.

Failed Attempt to Blow Shofar on Temple Mount, Rosh Hashanah 5781

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Fall Feasts, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 24, 2020 by paulthepoke

Joel 2:1 Blow a trumpet in Zion; sound an alarm on my holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming; it is near…

The prophet Joel commands to blow the shofar on the Temple Mount. A young Jewish man took the call seriously. There was an attempt to blow the shofar on Rosh Hashanah/Yom Teruah/Feast of Trumpets.

The following is from Yehudah Glick’s Shalom Jerusalem Foundation.

On Shabbat, the first day of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Teruah, the Israeli authorities violently arrested a young man for trying to blow the Shofar on the Temple Mount. Please partner with us to change facts on the mount. Join the Global campaign. http://www.shalomjerusalem.org

September 24, 2020/5781: Yehudah Glick was ticketed and fined at the Golden Gate at the foot of the Temple Mount. He was accused of praying. Below are Glick’s comments and video of his demonstration.

Last minute before complete lockdown in Jerusalem, Two days before Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), Rabbi Yehudah Glick takes advantage of permit and demonstrates. (He is) demanding to be allowed to blow shofar on Temple Mount. Police Fines Rabbi Yehudah Glick at Golden Gate for Demonstrating and Blowing Shofar claiming it is a false demonstration as he was actually praying! (minute 7). This situation is really crazy and must stop! We Will continue calling loud and clear.

Click on the video below for Glick’s demonstration. He gives examples of multiple shofars and their purpose and sound. See the video of Glick being fined for “prayer” as seen by local law officials.

A shofar blast from the Temple Mount is a call of warning and trembling. The Day of the Lord is coming!!! When this event actually happens, we should know the Day of the Lord… it is near…

Joel 2:2 …a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness! Like blackness there is spread upon the mountains a great and powerful people; their like has never been before, nor will be again after them through the years of all generations.

Temple Mount Shofar Blowing Denied on Rosh Hashanah, 5781

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Fall Feasts, Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Trend Update with tags , , , , on September 20, 2020 by paulthepoke

Temple Mount, Rosh Hashanah 5781/2020: For this year, the shofar was not allowed to be blown on the Temple Mount.

Numbers 29:1 ‘Now in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall also have a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work. It will be to you a day for blowing trumpets.

The Sanhedrin and the Shalom Jerusalem Foundation had requested to blow the shofar on the Temple Mount to bring in the secular Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. In Judaism, it is called Yom Teruah which means the “Day of Blowing”. The appointment is called the Feast of Trumpets by Christians.

Although, they were not allowed to blow a shofar on the Temple Mount… it did not stop them from playing recordings of a shofar from their cell phones on the Temple Mount.

Click on the video from Yehuda Glick as he provides commentary before he blows the shofar from the Mount of Olives across the valley from the Temple Mount. Listen closely, it was a bit windy on the Mount of Olives.

For those of you who are not familiar with Yehuda Glick, he has led a most interesting life.

Yehuda Glick was a member of the Israeli Knesset from 2016-2019. After serving his term, Glick founded the Shalom Jerusalem Foundation. A stated goal of the foundation is to “pave the road for the rebuilding of the Third Temple”. Check out the link to the Shalom Jerusalem Foundation.

In 2014, Yehuda Glick took multiple gun shots from an intended assassin and survived. He is the same rabbi who was the head of the Temple Institute in Jerusalem. He believes Jews should be able to pray on the Temple Mount. Previously, Glick has stated a vision of three faiths (Islam, Christianity and Judaism) sharing the Temple Mount.
