The Watchmen: Temple Mount Control & Jordan, Abraham Accords Trade, Erdogan Travels to Saudi Arabia, Rublezone, Putin’s Surgery, Iranian Reach & Propaganda

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

In this episode of The Watchmen we look at Jordan wanting full control of the Temple Mount complex. Are we watching Jordan respond to regional pressure with regards to security of the Muslim religious sites? How does this relate to Ezekiel 38-39? Flags are flying on the Temple Mount during Ramadan. Who do these flags represent?

The United Arab Emirates are flying heavy transport planes in and out of Israel. It appears defense contracts are being fulfilled between the Abraham Accord countries. The concern is an increasingly hostile Iran with nuclear intentions.

President Recep Erdogan of Turkey travelled to Saudi Arabia this week for the first time in five years. Erdogan stated, “I see and believe that it is in our joint interest to boost our cooperation with Saudi Arabia in such areas as healthcare, energy, food security, agricultural technologies, defense industry and finance. It seems that we have significant potential particularly in renewable and green energy. We will hopefully discuss and thoroughly evaluate these issues.”

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps allegedly tried to assassinate an Israeli diplomat in Turkey. Iran is reaching out via Hezbollah around the globe including the British Virgin Islands with drug deals.

Russia is cutting off the flow of natural gas to European countries of Poland and Bulgaria who refuse to pay in rubles. However, the Rublezone has manifested with Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary who are agreeable to pay for natural gas in rubles.

Allegedly, Russian President Vladimir Putin is scheduled for cancer surgery in the near future. Fellow KGB comrade Nikolai Patrushev is picked to assume authority while Putin is under treatment. Putin is suspected to be managing Parkinson’s Disease and symptoms related to the progressive neurological disorder. Check out video and professional analysis of Putin’s physical condition.

Teaser alert… Food processing plants are catching fire around the United States. 18 plants have been affected in the last 6 months. More on this topic to come in future episodes of the Watchmen.

Lastly, nothing like a little Iranian Propaganda gong wrong. In preparation for Jerusalem Day, things don’t go as planned. This section of the Watchmen was brought to you by Beavis and Butthead. Sorry, we could not help ourselves. Deep down, grown men have a teenage boy inside of them!

The Watchmen: Temple Mount, Israeli & Russian Tension, Chinese Yuan, Cross of Christ, Russia & Sudan, US Middle East Policy

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 25, 2022 by paulthepoke

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

In this episode of The Watchmen we look at drama on the Temple Mount. In an opinion piece from the Jerusalem Post, a prominent Israeli Rabbi calls for the construction of the third Temple. Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid calls the maintenance of the status quo on the Temple Mount. Confused???

Tension continues to build between Russian and Israel. Ezekiel 38-39 tells us Russia will eventually turn on Israel. Russian President Vladimir Putin demands ownership of a Russian Orthodox Church in the Christian Quarter of Jerusalem.

Israel is adding the Chinese Yuan and cutting the United States dollar to their reserve holdings. The dollar continues to fall in global holdings.

Was a relic of the cross of Jesus Christ on the sunken Russian warship Moskva? If so, did the piece of the cross sink to the bottom of the Black Sea?

Russia’s Wagner Group is in Sudan. Russia wants a port on the Red Sea. Ezekiel’s gang continues to come together.

The Saudis are looking to the Chinese as a business partner. Will the Saudis conduct business dealings in the Chinese Yuan. What would the potential consequences be to the value of the US dollar? Can the Saudis trust the United States?

What is the current United States policy in the Middle East? History since the 2011 Arab Spring is reviewed.

This Week in Prophecy: Israeli Defense Pact, Grain Shortages Emerging, Gold Backed Ruble?, Russian Gas Flow, Food Inflation

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 4, 2022 by paulthepoke

This Week in Prophecy, April 4th, 2022:

The Negev Summit was completed this past week in Israel. Is a military alliance forming between Israel, Morocco, Egypt, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States? Air and Naval exercises have been completed in the Red and Mediterranean Seas. The objective is regional “peace and security”.

Revelation 6 prophecies of a time when it will cost a day’s wage to provide for basic provisions to eat a loaf of bread. Food shortages, supply chain disruption, and inflation are trending toward difficult times.

The early results of the Russian invasion of Ukraine are in. Israel is facing shortages of eggs and wheat. Exports out of Ukraine have stopped. Israeli suppliers are scrambling to fill the void left in food supply chains.

Is Russia looking to return to a gold and commodity backed Ruble? The central bank is buying gold. President Vladimir Putin is demanding natural gas be paid in rubles from those buying the Russian product. Will Putin cut off the flow of natural gas to Europe if they refuse to pay in Rubles?

Will oil and commodity payment be linked to the ruble as well? What does this mean for commodity and precious metal prices? How will this affect the paper gold market of the COMEX?

The Russian Ruble has almost recovered to levels prior to the invasion of Ukraine. What does the future hold for the value of the Russian Ruble and the US Dollar?

German grocery prices are headed up from 20 to 50% starting Monday…

The Watchmen: Russia/Ukraine Update, Iran in the News, Turkey Peace Negotiations, Saudi Oil Attacked, Israel’s Negev Summit, Abraham Accord Festival, Energy Inflation

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 28, 2022 by paulthepoke

The Watchmen, just a couple of dudes sitting on the wall watching the world…

In this episode of The Watchmen we look at the current situation on the ground in Ukraine. How is Russian troop morale? Anecdotal evidence suggests things are not all roses.

Is this morale foreshadowing into Ezekiel 38:21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Lord GOD. Every man’s sword will be against his brother.

Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan looks to host peace negotiations between Ukraine and Russia in Turkey. Erdogan is looking to elevate himself on the world stage as a power broker.

As a hallmark of the end times scenario, deception is every where. In today’s world, we call it propaganda and spin. Everyone is trying to project a message regardless of the facts of the matter.

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia… Modern day Iran is keeping busy. The Iran Nuclear Deal negotiations continue. The Iranian proxies in Yemen, the Houthis, have launched an attack on the Saudi Arabian oil company Aramco. Iran marked the occasion by projecting pictures of Houthi leaders on the famed Azadi Tower in Tehran.

Israel is hosting the Negev Summit this week. Partners in the Abraham Accords and nations at peace with Israel are in attendance. US Secretary of State Blinken is at the meeting and touring the Middle East and North Africa.

The Abraham Accords Festival and Games kicks off this week as well. Soccer friendlies are the headliners.

Inflation continues to be an issue. Gas prices are going up in Israel. Germany is out of natural gas. Countries are lining up to take advantage of the situation.

Aggression continues to increase around the Middle East and Europe. The rest of the world stands by and watches. Ezekiel 38 speaks of a time when not one country will come to the defense of Israel. As it stands now, no one is coming to the defense of Ukraine. No one is coming to the defense of Saudi Arabia. The United States is stepping away from the Middle East…

Vladimir Putin Quotes Jesus

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on March 24, 2022 by paulthepoke

John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.

Independent Newspaper Nigeria

March 19, 2022, Moscow: President Vladimir Putin was hosting a pro war pep rally. He delivered a speech justifying Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. As stated by Putin, the reason for the “Special Military Operation” is as follows.

“…to get people out of their misery, out of this genocide, that is the main reason, the motive and purpose of the military operation that we began in Donbas and Ukraine,” Russian President Putin.

Putin would later go on to quote Jesus in John 15:13.

‘There is no greater love than if someone gives his soul for his friends,’ Vladimir Putin.

The issue is the translation of one word. Putin used the Russian word душу (dushu). This word is translated as “soul” in English.

John, under the direction of the Holy Spirit utilized the Greek word ψυχή/psuché. Per Strong’s Concordance, the word means breath or the soul.

Yet, our English translators of the English Standard Version, King James Version, and New American Standard Bible use the word “life” in John 15:13. To take it a step further, I could not find one English translation that did not use the word “life”.

I am not questioning Putin’s beliefs. That is between him and his Maker. He claims to be a Russian Orthodox Christian. Historically, Putin states he is not comfortable talking publicly about his beliefs.

https://theweek.com/russia/1011510/putin-quotes-jesus-to-justify-invasion-of-ukraine

Let me be clear. I am not supporting Putin as a Bible scholar or theologian or wordsmith. Putin is quoting the verse within the context of his justification for the Russian invasion of Ukraine, an act of love as he sees it.

Look at the context of the verse from the standpoint of Jesus, “Love on another.

John 15:12-17 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another.

Another practical application of the verses… Russians and Ukrainians, love one another. I currently don’t see much fruit being cultivated with the current geopolitical conflict.

My point is this. Be discerning. Study God’s word and understand it for yourself. Don’t take my word or Putin’s word. Read the Bible and interact with the words. Let the Spirit of God interact and communicate with you personally. Set aside preconceived notions and biases and listen to what is actually being said.

Propaganda of War… Czekmate

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Czekmate, Ezekiel 38-39, Fake News???, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on March 5, 2022 by paulthepoke

Proverbs 22:8 Whoever sows injustice will reap calamity, and the rod of his fury will fail.

Czekmate has a number of complaints about this war of propaganda. It takes a discerning eye to get what appears to be truth out of it, from the Ukrainian side and (nearly as always) the Russian one.

Thoughts to consider via a pretentious self-Q&A —
Are people dying? Surely.

Is there a humanitarian crisis? Unquestionably, based strictly on the amount a fear being generated among the population.

Are troops in contact? Seems to be the case if even the Russians will admit casualties.

Are the Ukrainians using the violence to mask international criminality under the pretense of Russian attack? Almost certainly evidence is being destroyed and made to look like battlefield violence. Anyone who’d have turned state’s evidence in relation to the Maidan Massacre, Hunter Biden/Burisma, or the bogus Ukraine impeachment scandal best be out of the country and have exfiltrated documents.

Are the Ukrainians effectively using their military aid donated to them by western states? Not sure, they are horrendously irresponsible weapons proliferators – if we see Javelins and Stingers on the international black arms market, we’ll a sign of profiteering. Remember Libya, that is how we ended up with Benghazi and weapons trafficking to Syria through Turkey.

Is the violence fueling internecine fighting in Ukraine? This was the case in Iraq, where tribes would open a fight against each other and try to draw in the coalition. There is likely some Ukrainian mafia infighting among the targets being struck. In other words, the combat becomes cover for the Ukrainian Mafia world to consolidate and realign power among the criminal groups.

This was the secret to Putin’s rise to power toward the tail end of the mafia criminal wars in Moscow and Saint Petersburg (1990s). Much of this fighting will have a component involving the reordering the Ukrainian underworld. This was the case in the second Chechen war and the Russian intervention in Georgia. In that way, the appearance of a crescendo in Russian violence needs to be considered.

Is Zelensky a hero like CNN/MSNBC/FOX says? Time will tell. He is riding a wave of international acclaim that is probably fueling some muted outrage in the Kremlin. For an information war, Ukraine and the International/DNC hacks are just showing the Russians that they can ‘play the game harder’.

In the case of Mr. Zelensky, having little/no experience in situations like this, he is way too cool. He would also do well to remember that other international figures of acclaim include Michael Avenati (thief), Yassir Arafat (terrorist) and Anthony Fauci (charges pending).

With that, read this daily dose of semi-truth and note the buried story lead of Mid-East Mercenaries (Ezekiel 38 “Many nations with you” — that comes later… but keep it in mind).

Russia and Ukraine, March 1, 2022… Operational Update & News

Russia and Ukraine, March 1, 2022, Operational Update & News

Multiple sources are documenting what Russian troop movements are. Intelligence agencies are weighing in on the issue. Did Belarusian President Lukashenko release some classified information by mistake? If so, you can be he will hear about it and be placed on a tight leash.

Has Russia dropped the Father of all Bombs on Ukraine? The bomb is AKA as a thermobaric bomb, a vacuum bomb, or an aerosol bomb. Video evidence out of Kharkiv seems to indicate this is likely.

Hyperinflation watch per Revelation 6:6. The cost of oil and wheat are on the rise. Supply chains are being disrupted and currencies are being devalued in Russia and across the Middle East and North Africa. Basic goods are getting expensive.

The Russian Ruble is getting crushed and is now worth less than a penny.

Lastly, portraits of leadership… Ukrainian vs. Russian leadership.
