Prime Minister Netanyahu to Annex the West Bank With Election Win, September 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2019 by paulthepoke

Joshua 1:2-3 “Moses my servant is dead. Now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land that I am giving to them, to the people of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses.

September 10, 2019: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made his “dramatic announcement”. If Netanyahu emerges victorious in the upcoming elections on September 17, he plans to annex settlements in the West Bank.

“This is the eastern shield that ensures that we will never return to being a country with a width of a few kilometers. This map guarantees strategic depth to Israel. It defines our eastern border.”

There are an estimated 30 settlements and 8,000 residents that would come under Israeli sovereignty.

Netanyahu plans to coordinate with the United States. President Donald Trump has promised to deliver his peace plan after elections on September 17.

“Out of respect for President Trump and out of great faith in our friendship, I’ll wait before applying sovereignty over settlements until the presentation of the diplomatic plan of the [US] president. As much as is possible, I want to apply sovereignty over settlements and other areas in maximum coordination with the U.S.,” Prime Minister Netanyahu.

“We will release our Vision for Peace after the Israeli election and work to determine the best path forward to bring long sought security, opportunity and stability to the region,” Trump Administration Spokesman.

The United Nations (UN) is not happy with today’s proclamation.

“The secretary-general’s position has always been clear: unilateral actions are not helpful in the peace process. Any Israeli decision to impose its laws, jurisdictions and administration in the occupied West Bank is without any international legal effect. Such a prospect would be devastating to the potential of reviving negotiations, regional peace, and the very essence of a two-state solution.” -UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is threatening.

“We have the right to defend our rights and achieve our goals by all available means, whatever the results, as Netanyahu’s decisions contradict the resolutions of international legitimacy and international law.” -Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas

Looks like Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wants to take back what God gave Israel in the first place. Besides, this is only the beginning of what God promised His chosen people.

Genesis 15:18-21 On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates: the Kenite and the Kenizzite and the Kadmonite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Rephaim and the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Girgashite and the Jebusite.”

Trump Recognizes Israel’s Golan Heights, March 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on March 21, 2019 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 2:13 And it will be against all the cedars of Lebanon that are lofty and lifted up, against all the oaks of Bashan…

Bashan is the modern day Golan Heights. This would be the area in the far north east corner of modern day Israel. This place is south of modern day Damascus, Syria. Geographical land marks would include a region east of the Jordan River and north of the Arnon River. This territory extended from Gilead in the south to Mount Hermon on the north.

Joshua 21:27 And to the Gershonites, one of the clans of the Levites, were given out of the half-tribe of Manasseh, Golan in Bashan with its pasturelands, the city of refuge for the manslayer…

President Trump has recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel.

In an interview with Fox Business News, President Trump made the following statement.

“I’ve been thinking about doing that for a long time. Every president has said ‘do that’. I’m the one that gets it done.” -President Donald Trump

The United Nation recognizes the Golan Heights as part of Syria. Resolution 242 calls on Israel to leave the Golan. Israel captured the land in 1967. In 1981, Israel stated they annexed the Golan Heights as part of their land. The link below provides a Middle East Eye perspective on the Golan Heights.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lavished praise on Trump’s decision.

“He did it again. First, he recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moved the US embassy here. Then, he pulled out of the disastrous Iran treaty and re-imposed sanctions. But now, he did something of equal historic importance.” -Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Trend Update: Israel Strikes SCUD Targets East of Damascus, January 2018

Posted in Burden of Damascus, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 9, 2018 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 17:1 The oracle concerning Damascus. “Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city and will become a fallen ruin.

January 9, 2018: Syria is claiming Israel has fired missiles from fighter jets at targets northeast of Damascus. Surface to surface missiles were fired from the Golan Heights area. Targets appeared to be related to scud missiles near the town of al-Qutayfah, Syria.

The incidents took place at approximately 2:00-3:00 in the morning.

Syria says that Israel is “fully responsible” for the military action.

Damascus is upset with Israel “as Israel does not announce their raids against Syrian targets.”

“The Israeli aggression affirms again the support of the occupying entity to terrorist organizations in Syria and its desperate attempts to raise their morale after the painful blows they received in Harasta in eastern Ghouta in Damascus countryside and the sweeping victories the Syrian Arab Army is achieving in Idlib.” -Syrian Army Spokesman

Syria is claiming to have hit an Israeli jet and intercepted incoming missiles…allegedly.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has sent a letter to the United Nations (UN). Syria warned Israel had better stop the aggression. Excerpts from the letter indicated the following…

“Israel’s aggressive attitude will lead to a regional conflagration and further exacerbate the situation. This is in order to support terror and perpetuate the occupation of Arab lands. The repeated Israeli strikes on Syria will not succeed in protecting terror organizations of Israel’s that are used as its agents, with the heads being ISIS and the Al-Nusra Front.”

“The Syrian government will repeat its warning to Israel of the serious consequences of striking Syria and the continued support to armed terror movements, and it holds it responsible. The Security Council must condemn the Israeli strikes and take steps to stop its aggression.” President al-Assad letter to UN

 

The Israeli Defense Forces have not publicly commented. It should be noted that Israel has admitted to hitting over 100 Hezbollah convoys and military targets. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu indicated the Jewish state will strike when “we have information and operational feasibility.”

Trend Update: US to Cut Funding to UN, Palestinians, & Pakistanis??? January 2018

Posted in Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on January 2, 2018 by paulthepoke

Obadiah 1:15 For the day of the Lord draws near on all the nations. As you have done, it will be done to you. Your dealings will return on your own head.

January 2, 2018: More money may be returning to the American tax payer. In protest of President Trump’s Jerusalem declaration, Palestinian Mahmoud Abbas has refused to participate in further peace talks on any level. In response, United States Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has been talking to the press. The Palestinians have been issued a warning. Return to the peace negotiation table with Israel or lose American funding.

In 2016, the United States gave $368,429,712 of financial support to Palestinian refugees.

“I think the president has basically said that he doesn’t want to give any additional funding until the Palestinians are agreeing to come back to the negotiation table. We’re trying to move for a peace process but if that doesn’t happen the president is not going to continue to fund that situation.”

“The Palestinians now have to show their will; they want to come to the table. As of now they are not coming to the table but they ask for aid. We’re not giving the aid. We’re going to make sure they come to the table and we want to move forward with the peace process.” -Nikki Haley, US Ambassador to the UN.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/us-warns-it-wont-fund-refugee-agency-if-palestinians-reject-talks/

 

The United States is also defunding Pakistan to the tune of $255,000,000. Ambassador Haley made these comments as well.

“The administration is withholding $255 million in assistance to Pakistan. There are clear reasons for this. Pakistan has played a double game for years. They work with us at time, and they also harbor the terrorists that attack our troops in Afghanistan. That game is not acceptable to this administration.”

“We expect far more cooperation from Pakistan in the fight against terrorism. The president is willing to go to great lengthens to stop all funding from Pakistan as they continue to harbor and support terrorism.” -Nikki Haley

Regarding Pakistan, President Trump has weighed in with a tweet.

The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!

That is a potential savings of roughly $600,000,000. Let’s find out how serious some people are about peace.

 

Trend Update: UN Declares Trump “Null & Void”, December 2017

Posted in Peace Plan, Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 21, 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.

December 21, 2017: We are living the verse above in today’s world. The nations of the planet are throwing an absolute tantrum over Jerusalem, Israel.

The UN has stated Trump’s declaration is “null and void”.

Today the United Nations (UN) held an emergency vote over Donald Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. 128 countries voted and urged President Trump to take back the proclamation. 35 countries abstained from voting.

9 countries voted against the UN resolution and stood with Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. These countries included: Israel, United States, Guatemala, Honduras, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Palau, Togo, and Nauru.

For countries who voted accordingly, see the link below.

“The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in this assembly. We will remember it when we are called upon to once again make the world’s largest contribution. That is what the American people want us to do and it is the right thing to do. This vote will make a difference in how Americans look at the UN. And this vote will be remembered.” -Nikki Haley, US Ambassador to the UN.

President Trump weighed in on the vote.

“We’re watching those votes. Let them vote against us, we’ll save a lot. We don’t care.” -President Trump.

Even the Sanhedrin held an emergency meeting in light of the UN vote. The Sanhedrin warned the nations their vote will seal their fate. Here is the declaration.

Isaiah 11:9 In all of My sacred mount nothing evil or vile shall be done; for the land shall be filled with devotion to Hashem as water covers the sea. Israel Bible Translation

The declaration reads:

The nations should now take this opportunity to advance their required role in building God’s House in Jerusalem, the House of Universal Peace, on Mount Moriah, as prophesied in the Bible in order to bring about the long-awaited world peace.

Nations that vote for this evil decree via their representatives are instruments of destruction and their fate is sealed, as has been the case throughout history for those nations who have chosen the path of evil.

For the nations that have, until now, come against Jerusalem this vote is an opportunity to leave their evil ways. If not, they are sealing their own fate and will see judgments from heaven. The nations that support the US president’s declaration will gain merit in heaven.

We emphasize that this vote does not affect the prophecies concerning Jerusalem as the City of God since God’s word is eternal. It is Jerusalem’s fate to be a Light Unto the Nations.

Any nation that desires life will act intelligently and support the declaration of the United States.”

A little recommendation for the nations of the world… We are not there yet. But God has some guidance if you choose to go against His people in His capital Jerusalem in His nation Israel.

Zechariah 12:9 And on that day I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

Trend Update: Emergency UN Meeting Over Jerusalem, December 2017

Posted in Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 9, 2017 by paulthepoke

Zechariah 12:2a “Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around…

The United Nations (UN) held an emergency meeting over President Trump and his declaration of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The UN has informed President Trump’s announcement has ruined the chance for peace in the Middle East.

Click on video link for additional analysis.

“The United Nations has repeatedly declared that any unilateral decision that seeks to alter the character and status of Jerusalem or that may alter these long-standing principles could seriously undermine current peace efforts and may have repercussions across the region.” Nickolay Mladenov, UN special coordinator for the Middle East peace process.

“The status of Jerusalem cannot be unilaterally altered or determined by any state and this decision by the US should be reconsidered and rescinded. The extremely regrettable announcement … has heightened tensions and risks the complete destabilization of this volatile situation.” -Riyad Mansour, UN ambassador and permanent observer for Palestine.

Israel and the United States responded with a different tone and approach at the emergency meeting. The United States was represented by Nikki Haley, US Ambassador to the UN. Israel was represented by their Ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon.

Haley Danon

“The United States has the courage and true understanding of justice to officially state what has always been known: that Jerusalem has and always will be the capital of Israel. The embassy of the United States belongs in Israel’s capital. We are grateful to the United States for its courageous decision. We call on all the nations of the world to join us this year in Jerusalem, the capital of the state of Israel.” -Danny Danon, Israeli Ambassador to the UN.

“Over many years the United Nations has outrageously been one of the world’s foremost centers of hostility towards Israel. The UN has done much more damage to the prospects of Middle East peace than to advance them. We remain committed to achieving a lasting peace agreement. We support a two-state solution if agreed to by the parties.” -Nikki Haley, US Ambassador to the UN.

 

Jordan who manages security for the holy sites in Jerusalem has stated nothing has changed.

“The kingdom believes that any unilateral decisions to build a new situation on the ground are null and void. The protection of Jerusalem and its holy places for all religions.” -Sima Bahous, Jordan UN representative

Egypt, the United Kingdom, France, Russia, Sweden, and Japan have made strong public statements condemning President Trump’s declaration. The Arab world is obviously up in arms.

http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/12/convenes-emergency-meeting-jerusalem-decision-171208162736190.html

 

The countries of the world are literally wringing their hands over Jerusalem.

The rest of the world does not see President Donald Trump to be a viable peace broker in the Middle East Peace Process. The world is scrambling for a person to take the lead on the issue. I will make the argument President Trump’s actions may be paving the way for the antichrist. Leadership will emerge. Do your own homework.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/france-us-excluded-itself-from-peace-process/

The Bible states in Daniel 7 and Revelation chapters 13 & 17 a man will emerge from a group of a 10 nation conglomerate. He is going to be a really bad dude.

Trend Update: Pestilence, Cholera Spirals in Yemen/Quake off N Korea, July 2017

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Pestilence, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 12, 2017 by paulthepoke

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

This one verse has it all in today’s news…

July 12, 2017: The country of Yemen is undergoing the worst cholera outbreak in world history. That is the assessment of the United Nations. Yemen is a war torn country of 27 million people on the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula. Civil war between Sunni and Shia Muslims continues to rage.

5,000 to 7,000 new cases per day are estimated per the International Committee of the Red Cross. Number of daily cases is up from 2,000 plus just two months ago in May 2017.

In May 2017, experts estimated at least 150,000 cases were expected over the next six months. As of July 2017, there are over 320,000 cases reported. Numbers were actually underestimated. 1,700 plus deaths have occurred in the last couple of months.

Cholera is the result of poor sanitation, untreated water and food, and dysentery. Cholera is a vicious cycle of disease that spreads easily and quickly among the masses.

As a result of war, infrastructure is breaking down to the point of collapse. Clean water is not available. Trash men are on strike.

The United Nations is cutting back on food and focusing on the epidemic. Food supplies have been cut off from the populous. Hunger and malnutrition are spreading throughout the country.

Over half of the hospitals have been damaged and destroyed. Medical supplies are limited and new supplies have been affected by war and supply chains. Up to six children are sharing a hospital bed. Trained medical staff is in short supply. Local medical professionals have gone without pay for 10 months. Vaccines for cholera have been suspended due to the condition of war.

The United Nations estimates 14.5 to 19 million people have been impacted.

There will be great earthquakes…

kim-jong-un-binocularsA deep 6.0 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of North Korea today. The quake was estimated to be 600 km into the earth. That energy is going to release somewhere closer to the surface. Don’t be surprised if 7.0 or greater is just around the corner…
