Trend Update: UNESCO Secret Vote & Tomb of the Patriarchs, July 2017

Posted in Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 7, 2017 by paulthepoke

Genesis 50:13 for his sons carried him to the land of Canaan and buried him in the cave of the field at Machpelah, to the east of Mamre, which Abraham bought with the field from Ephron the Hittite to possess as a burying place.

This is one of many references for the burial place of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The wives of the patriarchs were buried here as well. That includes Sarah, Rebekah, and Leah. The reference in Genesis 50 is to Jacob.

Abraham originally purchased the plot of land with silver.

Genesis 23:16-17 Abraham listened to Ephron, and Abraham weighed out for Ephron the silver that he had named in the hearing of the Hittites, four hundred shekels of silver, according to the weights current among the merchants. So the field of Ephron in Machpelah, which was to the east of Mamre, the field with the cave that was in it and all the trees that were in the field, throughout its whole area, was made over…

Genesis 23:19 After this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah east of Mamre (that is, Hebron) in the land of Canaan.

Machpelah is Hebron in the book of Genesis. And roughly 4,000 years later, the location is still Hebron in the 21st century. Hebron is located in the West Bank south of Jerusalem approximately 20 miles. Hebron is the largest Palestinian city with a population of 200,000.

Friday, July 07, 2017: Under the cloak of darkness, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) held a secret vote in Krakow, Poland. The World Heritage Committee introduced the secret Hebron Solution at the request of three member states.

z14830455V,Instalacja-z-okazji-nadania-Krakowowi-tytulu-miastUNESCO voted the Tomb of the Patriarchs and Hebron’s Old City as a Palestinian World Heritage Site. Jews refer to the site as the Jewish Tomb of the Patriarchs. Muslims call the location the Ibrahimi Mosque. The location was also deemed an “endangered Palestinian site” by UNESCO.

The vote went down as follows. Twelve nations voted in favor, three opposed, and six abstained. As far as what countries voted and how they voted, that information is not available.

The following countries are members of the World Heritage Committee per the UNESCO website: Angola, Azerbaijan, Burkino Faso, Croatia, Cuba, Finland, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Korea, Tunisia, Turkey, Tanzania, Viet Nam, and Zimbabwe.

“Today, Palestine and the world, through UNESCO, celebrate Hebron as part of world heritage, a value that transcends geography, religion, politics, and ideology. This vote celebrated facts and rejected the shameless high-profile political bullying and attempts at extortion.” -Palestinian Foreign Ministry

After the UNESCO vote, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cut $1 million dollars to UNESCO funding.

“In the face of UNESCO’s denial, the prime minister is determined to present to the whole world the historical truth and the thousands of years of deep Jewish roots in Hebron.” -Netanyahu Spokesman

Jacob was buried with his fathers at this location in Hebron. Jacob wrestled with God for an evening and had a life altering experience.

Genesis 32:28 Then he said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with men, and have prevailed.”

UNESCO, by the way…Jacob…Israel…same thing.

Trend Update: UNESCO Votes Against Israeli Ties to Jerusalem

Posted in Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on May 2, 2017 by paulthepoke

Zechariah 12:3 On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples. All who lift it will surely hurt themselves. And all the nations of the earth will gather against it.

May 2, 2017: The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) voted that Israel has no legal or historical rights to Jerusalem. The vote was cast on Israel’s Independence Day.

The resolution was called “Occupied Palestine”. The measure was brought forth by Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, and Sudan. The vote breakdown was as follows: 22 countries passed, 23 countries abstained, 10 countries opposed, and 3 countries were absent.

The 10 countries opposed: United States, UK, Italy, the Netherlands, Lithuania, Greece, Paraguay, Ukraine, Togo, and Germany.

This vote appears to be on a collision course with President Trump and his trip to Israel later in the month of May. Trump is scheduled to arrive in Israel on May 22, 2017. Jerusalem Day begins on May 23. This year is the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem being reunified.

Speculation is Trump will make a major announcement in Jerusalem during the trip.

http://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-us-eyeing-trump-visit-on-may-22-23/

Recent comments by Florida Congressman Ron DeSantis are most interesting. Keep in mind, DeSantis recently traveled to Jerusalem to assess real estate locations for a possible US Embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“We have the chance to see a very important announcement very soon. What better time would there be to announce the relocation of the embassy than when you’re over there as president, celebrating alongside our Israeli friends this very important 50th anniversary? The announcement of that trip is a signal that it is more likely to happen than not. We are assuming that that is going to happen.” -Florida Congressman Ron DeSantis

Speculation is all over the map…

Trend Update: Jewish Archeological Evidence on Temple Mount

Posted in Prophecy, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 29, 2016 by paulthepoke

1 Chronicles 22:9-10 ‘Behold, a son will be born to you, who shall be a man of rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies on every side; for his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quiet to Israel in his days. He shall build a house for My name, and he shall be My son and I will be his father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.’

The Lord God of Israel is talking to King David. He was kept from building the Temple of the Lord because of war and bloodshed in the land (1 Chronicles 22:8).

October 27, 2016: Artifacts from the Solomon Temple era were found on location of the Temple Mount. King Solomon built the first Temple in approximately 960 BC. This is the first time evidence has been found on top of the Temple Mount. Previously in the Ophel excavations, items were found off the southeast wall of the Temple Mount near the Kidron Valley.

Evidence unearthed included: olive pits, animal bones and pottery fragments. One of the largest finds occurred when a trench for a power cable was dug. The find was located approximately 400 feet southeast of the Dome of the Rock. Carbon dating confirmed the time era of the pieces.

This archeology dig was completed quietly with the Muslim Waqf who is in charge of security on the Temple Mount. Multiple surveys have taken place between 2007 and 2016.

http://www.timesofisrael.com/archaeologists-reveal-first-solomons-temple-era-artifacts-ever-found-on-temple-mount/

October 13, 2016: The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) voted to deny recognition of religious sites on the Temple Mount to the Jewish people. The UN stated the Temple Mount belongs to the Muslims.

Crack squad over at the UN…

The verses from 1 Chronicles 22:9-10 were prophetic to David and Solomon approximately 1,000 years before Jesus Christ. And they came to pass. But the verses also foreshadow the future of our day in October 2016.

David’s son will establish His kingdom. He will establish peace and quiet. He will build a house.

Mark 1:11 And a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”

Revelation 1:6 and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Trend Update: “Third Wall” Found in Jerusalem, October 2016

Posted in Prophecy, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 20, 2016 by paulthepoke

John 2:20 The Jews then said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?”

The Jewish leaders of Jesus’ day were confused. In the context of these verses, Jesus was referring to His body the Temple. The Jewish leaders were referring to the house of worship, the Temple. Thankfully adversarial confusion confirms there was a real, physical Temple during the days of Jesus. This is the Temple during Jesus Christ’s time on earth. It was Herod’s reconstructed Temple.

October 20, 2016: Reports out of Jerusalem indicate remains of the “Third Wall” have been unearthed. The Third Wall surrounded the city of Jerusalem prior to the Roman destruction of the city and Temple in 70 AD.

The archeological dig was completed by Dr. Rena Avner and Kfir Arviv of the Israel Antiquities Authority. The findings were located in the Russian Compound of Jerusalem where the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design is to be built.

Relics from the Roman attack on Jerusalem have been discovered. The Romans were led by Titus during this era. Multiple ancient ballista and sling stones were used to bomb Jerusalem were discovered. These rocks were launched from catapults in the assault.

These findings confirm the writings of the Jewish historian Flavius Josephus. See the attached article for boundaries of the wall per Josephus.

The findings will be presented on October 27, 2016 at the Mount Scopus campus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The title of the presentation is New Studies in the Archaeology of Jerusalem and its Region.

October 13, 2016: The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) voted to deny recognition of religious sites on the Temple Mount to the Jewish people. The UN stated the Temple Mount belongs to the Muslims.

https://paulthepoke.com/2016/10/14/trend-update-unesco-rejects-jewish-ties-to-temple-mount-october-2016/

UNESCO clearly did not heed the warning from the Jewish Sanhedrin in early August 2016.

https://paulthepoke.com/2016/08/09/trend-update-sanhedrin-takes-on-un-over-temple-mount-august-2016/

In light of this discovery, one would hope UNESCO would reconsider their recent vote. After all, this is the international body who oversees education, scientific, and cultural issues. Surely, accuracy is important to UNESCO…

 

Trend Update: UNESCO Rejects Jewish Ties to Temple Mount, October 2016

Posted in Prophecy, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on October 14, 2016 by paulthepoke

October 13, 2016: The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) voted to deny recognition of religious sites on the Temple Mount to the Jewish people. The UN stated the Temple Mount belongs to the Muslims.

The Scripture reference is the Bible, never mind over 3,000 years of history and archeological evidence that ties the Hebrew people to the Temple Mount, Jerusalem, and Israel.

Never mind Islam did not start until 610 AD…

The following countries voted for the ban: Algeria, Bangladesh, Brazil, Chad, China, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mauritania, Mexico, Morocco, Mozambique, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Russia, Senegal, South Africa, Sudan, and Vietnam.

Next are the countries with the attitude of the Laodicea church in Revelation. These countries chose to abstain. Get off the fence and make a stand one way or the other. Revelation 3:15-16 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. -Jesus

The following countries refused to vote on the ban: Albania, Argentina, Cameroon, El Salvador, France, Ghana, Greece, Guinea, Haiti, India, Italy, Ivory Coast, Japan, Kenya, Nepal, Paraguay, Saint Vincent and Nevis, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Togo, Trinidad and Tobago, Uganda, and Ukraine.

The following countries supported Israel: United States, Great Britain, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Germany, and Estonia.

Genesis 12:3 And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.

History says this is a bad foreign policy move for countries voting against Israel.

Oh by the way, the Bible says there is going to be a third Jewish Temple.

Trend Update: Sanhedrin Takes on UN Over Temple Mount, August 2016

Posted in Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on August 9, 2016 by paulthepoke

Matthew 26:59 The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were trying to find false testimony against Jesus so that they could put him to death.

The Sanhedrin of Israel is back in the news, August 2016. The Sanhedrin reconvened in 2005 after a 1,600 year absence. They oversee legal matters and future construction of the pending third temple.

http://www.heisnear.com/Sanhedrin.html

They now have their own website.

http://www.thesanhedrin.org/en/index.php?title=The_Re-established_Jewish_Sanhedrin

The Greek word for Sanhedrin is sunedrion. It is frequently translated as “Council” in the New Testament (Strong’s Concordance).

The UN wants to pass a resolution stating the Temple Mount belongs to Muslims only. The resolution was proposed at a meeting in Istanbul, Turkey.

Palestinian media and Muslims deny the existence of previous Jewish Temples.

The Sanhedrin has issued a public statement to the United Nations (UN). Do not mess with the historic ties of the Temple, the Temple Mount, and the nation of Israel.

Here are some quotes from the Sanhedrin, “The Jewish right to the Temple Mount was established in the Bible, and should therefore be recognized by Christianity and Islam.”

The UN’s position was deemed as “UNESCO’s very unholy actions” by the Sanhedrin.

The Sanhedrin supports their position with overwhelming archeological evidence of previous Jewish Temples. Archeology evidence includes artifacts and over 100 immersion pools found under the modern day Temple Mount. The Sanhedrin welcomes any one to look at the evidence.
