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.

Passover Sacrifice on Temple Mount??? Passover 5780/2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Spring Feasts, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on April 1, 2020 by paulthepoke

Exodus 12:6 and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month, when the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill their lambs at twilight.

Exodus 12:8 They shall eat the flesh that night, roasted on the fire; with unleavened bread and bitter herbs they shall eat it.

The Sanhedrin has petitioned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and United States President Donald Trump to allow the Passover sacrifice to occur on the Temple Mount. The Pesach sacrifice has not taken place on the Temple Mount in 2000 years. The Sanhedrin believes the Temple Mount is the threshing floor purchased by King David. The Sanhedrin believes this sacrifice on the Temple Mount would bring an end to the COVID 19 pandemic.

“The only thing preventing the Jewish People from performing the Passover sacrifice is the Israeli government.” Rabbi Hillel Weiss, Spokesman for the Sanhedrin.

Weiss went on to further comment…

“Plurality in the form of 70 nations is a Biblical requirement for the Temple to be a House of Prayer for All Nations. Western liberal values and international law demand the equality of religions. We are proposing bringing a temporary altar for one day to sacrifice one lamb for the entire Jewish nation. The Samarians sacrifice hundreds of lambs every year. Any objection to this can only be based in racism and hatred.”

“We have been preparing, faithfully performing whatever we can to bring perform God’s will. Now it is in God’s hands to take it to its prophetic conclusion; the Pesach sacrifice on the Temple Mount. All of the inhabitants of the world need to place God’s will as it is expressed in the Bible foremost in their consciousness.” -Rabbi Hillel Weiss

The God appointed Spring Feasts begin at sundown on Wednesday, April 8, 2020 or Nisan 14, 5780.

Here is the letter from the Sanhedrin.

To the very  respected President of the USA

Mr Donald Trump.

To the very respected  Israel Prime Minister

 Benyamin Netanyahu

Twenty days ago we sent  you a letter requesting a permit for the sacrifice of one Passover lamb on  the Temple Mount, a copy which is also enclosed here in this letter. 

In these last twenty days the world has been changed  by the occurrence of a pandemic Covid 19 also which we have classified as a modern day plague.

As it is written in the Book of Samuel as well as the Book of Chronicles, we see that two times  the God of Israel canceled a plague inflicted on the Nation of Israel. Once, this divine act of mercy was brought about after Israel offered the Passover lamb in Egypt and the second time was when King David acquired the site of the location for the Temple and built the altar on this exact site in the yard of the Temple Mount.

Twenty one days from now, the 14th of the month of Nissan, will be the time for sacrificing the yearly Passover lamb. Like the original Passover sacrifice ended a plague and opened the door for Israel to go out into freedom, the same sacrifice brought this year will be intended to free all of  humanity from the yoke of evil and sins, preparing them to receive the Divine support, and healing them from this harsh pandemic.

As in happened in Egypt, this sacrifice which stopped the plague  at the doors of sons of Israel and set them free from slavery in the time of Moses again now will stop this modern day plague by renewing the work of the Temple for the first time in over 2,000 years. 

Mr President , you and Mr Netanyhu can immediately install the right values and laws for the entire human  race and all of creation in this world by letting Israel obey the laws of the Torah of Israel which requires us to sacrifice the Passover lamb. 

It is written in Zachariah and Isaiah that the remnants which God will call from all the nations will ascend to the Mountain of the God of Israel. We humbly ask, let this be so before a greater war will come. This is an  opportunity to change history and move all of mankind towards the light of mercy and justice.

Sincerely, 

Dov Stein

Secretary 

The Court of Sanhedrin 

 Jerusalem Israel

The following is an article and series written by Whitney Webb of mintpressnews.com.

In Part I of this multi-part series, MintPress examines the growth of extremist movements in Israel that openly promote the destruction of Al-Aqsa, from a relatively isolated fringe movement within Zionism to mainstream prominence in Israel today; as well as how threats to the historic mosque have grown precipitously in just the past month. MintPress interviewed Israeli author and activist Miko Peled; Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss of Neturei Karta in New York; Imam and scholar of Shia Islam, Sayed Hassan Al-Qazwini, of the Islamic Institute of America; and Palestinian journalist and academic Ramzy Baroud for their perspectives on these extremist groups, their growing popularity, and the increasing threats to the current status quo at Haram El-Sharif/Temple Mount…
