Is Any Place Safe?

L. A. Marzulli

Is any place safe? I get asked this question both when I’m speaking at conferences and about once a week in my email. The answer, in my opinion is no. The planet is wired together and the military has equipment that can locate a mosquito in the middle of a haystack. There’s no place on this planet that a person can run to that won’t be affected by what is coming on the earth.

If they want you they will find you. Kind of makes you paranoid doesn’t it? With that in mind there is an apocryphal story that I have heard repeated ever since I became a Christian, 30 years ago. The story goes like this. Shortly before the Romans destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD, the Christians were warned and they left the city!

In his recent book, Jerusalem and the Third Temple, author Robert Reiland explains that when Shekinah left the temple in Jerusalem the Christians took this as a sign that it was time to leave. In other words, they were harkening back to the times when their ancestors were being led by the pillar of cloud by day, and the pillar of fire by night. They figured that if Shekinah was leaving then they would too. It would appear from Rieland’s research that the story may be true after all.

That being said, I think there are some of us who will be warned what to do. Joseph had a dream and left for Egypt. Jacob had a dream. Lot was warned and so was Noah. I think we need to be aware that we might be told before it gets really crazy.

Earthquakes continue weekly. Haiti is now bracing for a Cholera epidemic. The global monetary system is cracking. The Federal Reserve wants to print more phony money. The Middle East War looms. Volcanos erupt. Need I say more? Tenuous and troublesome times prevail. With all of this happening I am reminded of a prophecy that states, men will faint from fear from what is coming on the earth. Does this mean a comet, a meteor, Niburu, a solar flare, or perhaps a giant mile wide UFO?

Will any place be safe when these things begin to happen? Remember Yashua/Jesus also warns that when we see these things begin to happen, earthquakes, wars and rumors of wars, famines and pestilence that these are the beginnings of sorrows. So what are we to do?

We must hold on to the hope that our redemption, our hiding place, our rock, the keeper of our souls, Jesus, the Messiah, the anointed one, is our safe place. There’s no where left to hide except in Him…. and that is the safest place I know! If you don’t know Him, now might be a good time to ask Him into your heart….

    I am fascinated with concept will “I” or “We” be saved? The penalty of sin is death. As humans there is a 100% chance of death happening. John was the only disciple not martyred. He died of natural causes and Judas obviously killed himself. All of the disciples were killed for preaching the gospel. I think its gut check time. Will you as an individual be preaching the gospel in an evironment where the possibility of preaching it is death? I receive a publication every month called “The Voice of Marytrs” There are over 40 countries right now where you can be put to death for preaching the gospel or even carrying a bible.

    If your a christian is death by matrydom so bad? Martyrs will receive special rewards in heaven. If you havent read “China Cry” by Nora Lam I recommend it. She was persecuted for this very thing but survived in China during the revolution of Mao Tse Tung during the 1950′s. The same stories abound today in Iraq and Iran. Most muslim countries persecute christians. A christian church was bombed in Iraq last week that killed 58 christians.

    Many bible prophecy students are shocked to learn that one of the first prophicies predicted that came true was when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey to warn the citizens of Jerusalem of their destruction in 70 ad. However once again they failed to recoginize Jesus as the messiah and they perished. Jesus wept knowing their fate.

    I have been prepairing myself mentally for the possibility of martyrdom while preaching the gospel. There are so many tipping points that could escalate or lead into marshall law where christianity may be forbidden. When that happens there is a very real chance of being forced into a one world religion and one world government. The question you should asking yourself is are you ready to face your fate? Or will you pull a Peter? Will you deny Jesus just to save your life? Its a tough reality to ponder. I highly recommend Grant Jefferys “Shadow Government.” We are so close to the reality of “1984″ by George Orwell. I also recommend Mark Hitchcock’s the “The Late Great United States.”

    I have been even been thinking that I need to have 4 or 5 sermons memorized where I can rattle them off in any circumstance along with certain sciptures. You never know when you will be without a bible. I think christians are naive to what is right around the corner. One Terrorist activity; one earth quake; one volcano; an attack on Iran; anything could easily trigger a global shutdown which could lead to Marshall law. The collapse of the dollar is soon. There are over 400,000 foreign troops on US soil right now. For what you ask? To monitor Marshall in the US. Do you think US soilders will monitor US citizens during a marshall law setting. A few might most wont, thats why the foreign troops are here. The global elite are planning for the collapse of America.

    I will be honest I’m nervous. I pray for strength. I want to be prepaired. As a christian even though my sin has been great I long to hear those words spoken by the father at my Bema Seat of Judgement. “Thank you my good and faithful servant.” Can you imagine what Judas still thinks to this day. I loved the Lord how could I? I want to sit along side the saints some day and say “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” according to Timothy 4:7 or 1st Timothy 6:12 “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”

    Scary times we live in. Father I pray I’m strong enough to glorify your name in times of trouble. Please give me strength even during times when my life may be in danger. Amen

      I posted this song several months ago. My goal is to have it memorized. This song moves me beyond imagine and it gives me strength. I highly recommend you listen to it.

      Travis Cottrell “In Christ Alone” Just Awesome! To Him be the Glory!

    • That’s an excellent song. So many great worship songs are played at the BCM here at UT Martin and FBC Martin’s college ministry. Another song that is such an inspiration is “Stronger” by Hillsong.

    • Richard said

      I enjoy watching Hillsong. Their worship band is great. I know a lot of people frown upon the mega church’s and their pastors but I really enjoy Brian Houston’s sermons.

      Thanks for posting that Richard. Your thoughts have been mine for years! I sense the LORD is allowing usa to fill up on her sins before He removes His hand of protection….
      The “Mystery Missle” that went off, off the coast of CA really made me think.

      I want to share: Several years ago I had a vision that my kids and I were in our living room. Everything was burning and crazy outside. We had hurt people in our house, bandaging them up. Suddenly my husband calls on the phone and says, “are you ok?” I say, “yeah, we’re ok”. He says, “you take care of things there and I will take care of things here”. end dream. Just recently I had someone ‘interpret’ the dream/vision. Although I was pretty sure what it all meant, this person was able to give a lot more insight. And while being extremly delicate with my feelings, they were truthful. The phone call between my husband and I…was the LORD’s way of letting me know that he had died.
      As of right now, my husband works out of town. Had this ‘mystery missle’ been some nuke or something…..You better believe that I am very sober right now. I am praying about everything! I am not worried about me or my husband because if that is indeed the LORD’s will, then HE has us in His will and I will see my sweetheart later. Amos 3:7…the Lord lets us know things before they happen. It gives us time to prepare. Prepare to die to self, wants, dreams, to lose your loved ones, to see calamity….
      FATHER, please be with all the people on this forum, and may they draw strength from Your Son Yeshua. Amen

      PS in the last two days, my dear friend in her 60s was beat and robbed at work and someone broke into my husbands apt.
      There have been more robberies in our area, and gun fire of which really creeps me out because bullets can come through walls. So are we safe? Yes/No Peace with pain. Peace in the storm.

    • Richard said

      Dee thats a difficult dream vision to deal with. I’m sorry to hear about your friend. It sounds like you have been through some difficult times. I’m going to be prayer for you that everything will be ok for you and your family as well as your friend. Even though the picture I painted above was grim I still hope and pray for the best. Our father is capable of anything which includes protecting his flock. I still pray that he will take us out before it gets to tough. God Bless you Dee “Try to be Strong” Remember “I can do all things through christ who strengthens me!” Phillipians 4:13

    whether i fall victim to some calamity, or the Lord chooses to warn me and lead me away ahead of time, I’m in His hands either way, and I know there is no safer place to be.

    NETANYAHU TONE CHANGES ON IRAN, BEGINS LAYING GROUNDWORK FOR POSSIBLE MILITARY STRIKES, SANCTIONS NOT WORKING

    By Joel C. Rosenberg

    November 9, 2010 — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s trip to the U.S. was originally supposed to be three days. It has been extended to five days. He stopped first in New Orleans on Sunday to speak to a conference of American Jewish leaders, and to meet with Vice President Biden. He’s now spending several days in New York meeting with UN Secretary General Ki Ban Moon, Secretary of State Clinton, and others. The Obama team is trying to focus on peace talks with the Palestinians. But Netanyahu’s focus is different. He is warning military strikes against Iran may be necessary. Indeed, Netanyahu’s tone on Iran is changing. For much of the year, he has been fully supportive of economic sanctions. But the PM is now telling the U.S. to put a credible military threat on the table. He is, I believe, beginning to lay the groundwork for a possible Israeli preemptive strike, if the U.S. and the West can’t stop Iran any other way.

    “President Barack Obama isn’t doing enough to keep nuclear weapons out of Iran’s hands, and Israel may have to launch a military strike as a result.”

    ‘The problem in Iran is that the regime has an end-of-time theology. It believes we are living in the end of days. It expects the Islamic messiah, Twelfth Imam, to come at any moment.’ Furthermore, the regime believes that annihilating Israel – ‘the little Satan’ – and the United States – ‘the big Satan’ – is the way to hasten the Twelfth Imam’s arrival. ‘This is what’s so dangerous: nuclear weapons soon in the hands of people who believe it’s their God-given mission to end Judeo-Christian civilization as we know it,’ Rosenberg says. ‘We’re rapidly approaching the point where this could become all too real.’

    “Netanyahu has said that American economic sanctions against Iran aren’t working and that the United States must put a credible military threat on the table, Rosenberg notes. But he doesn’t think Netanyahu is convinced that the Obama administration will take decisive action. ‘I think the prime minister is laying the groundwork for sometime next year that if the world and U.S. don’t take decisive action, Israel may have to take action itself. I pray for peace but think we have to be prepared for war…..’”

    Over the weekend, the senator from South Carolina, Lindsey Graham who sits on the Armed Services Committee and the Homeland Security Committee, gave the world a taste of what American foreign policy would be like under Republican control. He sees the U.S. butting heads with Tehran as almost inevitable. AP reports Graham believes if the United States were to go to war against the Islamic republic, it would not be to “just neutralize their nuclear program, but to sink their navy, destroy their air force and deliver a decisive blow to the Revolutionary Guard, in other words neuter that regime.”

    “Instead of a surgical strike on their nuclear infrastructure, I think we’re to the point now that you have to really neuter the regime’s ability to wage war against us and our allies. And that’s a different military scenario. It’s not a ground invasion but it certainly destroys the ability of the regime to strike back.”

    He admitted that “the last thing the U.S. wants is another military conflict after Afghanistan and Iraq, but the last thing the world needs is a nuclear-armed Iran… Containment is off the table.” Graham argued: “If we use force, we open Pandora ’s Box, but if we let them get nuclear weapons, we empty Pandora’s Box.”

  6. Mack said

    Amen, I agree with you LA that there will be no where to hide from the things that are bound to take place on the earth. Indeed, we only can put are trust in the hope of Jesus providing us escape from the indulgence of evil forces that will gather against the meek. We all should continue to read the Bible and keep awake for the appointed times.

    • James Driscoll said

      Hellen Keller:
      Security is mostly a superstition.
      It does not exist in nature,
      nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.
      Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.
      Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

      Psalm 91
      He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
      I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
      Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
      He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
      Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
      Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
      A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
      Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
      Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
      There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
      For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
      They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
      Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
      Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
      He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
      With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

    I remember someone once saying…”When America was discovered, those fleeing persecution and seeking freedom met with roads bitter end.”

    In otherwords…America was the last ‘undiscovered land’ where one could run…now, there is no where left for one to go.

    It saddens me to hear of people buying guns, ammo, “bugout supplies”, seeking hidy holes to run to, selling everything they have for gold and silver. I listen to those who I know in their hearts mean well, but speak and advise others on everything but what they should. In the past months while I hear from these the ingrained words of “me, I, myself”, in their ‘prepreation for the endtimes’, never does the “Name” come into the converstation. The Lord Jesus should be found on the tips of our tongues at the beginning of this topic but He is not even most times found at all within the conversation.

    There is “no where to go”, no where to hide, no where to run”. It is to Him we all must look when that moment comes for ONLY HE can save us. Does it not say in scripture that “they” will throw their silver and gold into the streets” because it cannot save them? Yet we are told..BUY…BUY…BUY! I feel a testing is coming, the Lord must clean His own house before He can judge the world. We all need to decide now before that day…do you run…or stand firm (kneel) and place yourself and loved ones in the hand of Him who made you.

      Amen Debiblue~

    • Steve S said

      In many ways I agree with you. On the one hand, I don’t believe that Jesus wants us to be hiding in the hills (with our 7 years supply of guns, gold and groceries) at the very time we should be out proclaiming the Good News of Christ the strongest and loudest. On the other hand, I do believe that we are called to know the season and be prepared.

      A few years ago I had decided that I needed to be prepared for a breakdown in society (TEOTWAWKI). At the time I did not have a regular job and my family was living quite precariously on my wifes income and what I could make doing odd jobs. I started to accumulate what I thought I might need and to formulate “bug-out” plans. I picked up an old RV generator cheap and was pricing other “needs”. I prayed that God would show me what I needed and provide the funds for my preps.

      Well, a funny thing happened. As I would find great deals on things I thought I would need, oddly all our cash would be needed for some emergency or another. The more I prayed, the more “my” plans were thwarted. After a while, longer than I’d like to admit, I realized that God was answering my prayers by not allowing me to spend good money on things I didn’t “need”.

      I still believe, however, that God wants us to be ready for what is coming. I have provisions in the basement to keep my family from starving for a short while. I have a few bottles of propane for cooking and heating and a way of purifying water from the local stream/lake. I am learning about gardening and local edible plants, and … well … I still have that generator.

      I still fight the urge to go out and buy guns and ammo, or implement a full on bug-out plan, but I’m getting better about that.

      In the end if nothing happens, I have food that will get eaten, I have propane that I would have bought eventually for the grill. I have a water purifier that I use when we go camping and … well … if a snow storm takes out the power I DO have that generator.

  8. Hi L.A.,

    Great BLOG. We need to be aware that things in and on this earth are going to get REALLY crazy in the days ahead. Even though I personally believe that the Church will be delivered from the wrath of God, that does not mean that we won’t experience some very difficult days ahead.

    Let us look up. Our redemption does indeed draw near.

    Sometimes it comes into focus clearer to me than other times, in the midst of all this chaos, how satan and his evil cohorts, seem to be attacking more and more, harder and harder, stronger and stronger, as they are aiming their fiery darts at our very souls. Angrier and angrier because they know that they cannot destroy our souls when we are in the safe haven of the Lord, that LA speaks of. And as long as we don’t let go of the Lord, our souls are safe.

    Psalm 46:1-3
    1 God is our refuge and strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
    2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
    3 though its waters roar and foam
    and the mountains quake with their surging

    Romans 8:38-39
    38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
    39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Hi all and God bless you all greatly. Thinking about these things can be nerve racking but we have to remember to trust the Lord, praise Him, and pray. Easy to say and sometimes hard to do when our flesh and emotions get the better of us all at sometimes. But praise Him that He will remind us to do these very things, pray, fast, praise, worship, read the word, etc. to help us in these trying times. I was a single mom for a long time in years past and found some very hard financial and emotional times to go through. It was a test of faith to trust Him through things many times and yet I realized mentally that WHATEVER I end up going through in the Lord, it is for His glory. I had to think about the fact that no matter what I was experiencing, somewhere all over the world there were other brothers and sisters who were really, really suffering for Christ. Mothers with no food for their children, threat of crazy mobs attacking them, raping them and killing them and their children. All kinds of people, men, women, and children suffering for the Lord much worse than anything we here in the American church have experienced. It humbles me when I think of these things and makes me cry, cry because I feel sorrow for those people and fear for myself, because sometimes we think we know ourselves and think we will not deny the Lord but we really don’t know what we are capable of in any situation because we are still in this flesh. The thing I hang onto is the faith of God to me, not me to God. If it was based on my ability, I never would have known Him in the first place. It has been His unmatchless love that rescued me from my sin and it will have to be His unmatchless love to carry me through anything I have to face in my life…even if we do pull a Peter out of desparation, even as the Lord restored him, He will restore us as well. He has promised not to lose any that are truly His. Judas was never His, never. He never loved the Lord he only saw Him as a way to overthrow the Romans and to be part of a big political power move. Let us think about that when governmental issues come up. We need to vote, it is our duty, but we need to remember people are fallable and only when our Redeemer comes to set up His kingdom here on earth shall we all truly be free. I don’t want to suffer…but that is part of our life as a christian, to what degree we suffer is in the Lord’s hands and we must know that we are in His hands as well. Those are the nail pierced hands that bled for you and me and He will not fail us. No matter what we face. Amen!

    “Men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
    And they will see the SON OF MAN COMING IN A CLOUD with power and great Glory.
    But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up you heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

    This is the Scripture LA is Quoting above In its context. As any body read it? We saints will be on bended Knees During that time of “great shaking”
    Then; and I believe that is when the (Last trumpet shall sound) we are to straighten up, Lift up our Heads To see our coming redemption. Praise the lord!
    And if I Die before that event I shall still see it by my raising from the dead and joined with those living.

  13. Excellent post! Just like the blood on the doors of the Israelites in Egypt, we are safe if we are covered in His blood. Everywhere else is subject to both God’s wrath on sin and Satan’s revenge, but if we hide away in the Love of Jesus, He will protect us from the things coming upon the earth.

    • john b said

      I have been praying for that protection For the Last three years now. when everyone else is going to be shaking, I am trusting that my prayers will come to remembrance and that He will keep me still. and that these fearful things shall pass me By.

    Following on from what LA wrote this may make for some interesting reading also. Given we know when people die, that their spirits return back to God for his choosing. And we are in a sleep state. So who are these ?

    ‘More ghosts’ after earthquake

    The “sheer strength and power” of the September 4 earthquake has more than doubled the number of reported supernatural events in Canterbury, a paranormal investigator says.

    Christchurch Paranormal Investigators founder Anton Heyrick said his team had received an “interesting influx” of phone calls and emails after the 7.1-magnitude earthquake, with more than double the usual number of inquiries.

    “People are calling us, saying that they had always felt like there was something in the house, but since the earthquake it had become more intense,” he said.

    Most cases related to strange noises, although one man said he had been attacked by a ghost.

    Heyrick said the “sheer strength and power” of the earthquake may have been responsible for the increase in paranormal activity.

    The number of old buildings damaged in the earthquake may also have been a factor, he said.

    It was well known among investigators that when renovations on old buildings took place, “it tends to wake up dormant spirits, and activity tends to come out of nowhere”, he said.

    “With the earthquake, it literally smashed walls apart, and knocked down floors and ceilings, so you can imagine the effect that would have had.”

    The team, which did not charge for its services, had conducted two full investigations, and was planning to do several more.

    New Zealand Skeptics chairman Gold said the reports may have been due to “people’s minds playing tricks on them in the post-quake environment”.

    “You may not feel an aftershock, but it will still make things rattle. People’s minds fill in the blanks, and they tend to fill in the blanks with fairytales, unfortunately.”

      Yup! and maybe the cracking of the earth is making more of these evil spirits/ demons come out from under the earth where they have been locked up?? almost sounds like what’s happening in Rev 9, but I dont think that’s happening now. I picture a star falling from heaven bursting a huge crater in the earth and a wave of hybrids and demons terrorizing the earth. Not sure if we will physically see this event or not.
      God Bless!!

    My pastor Jim Dixon at CHCC.org did an amazing series on the last days in 2008. I re-listen to those sermons alot. In fact I have made copies of them and sent them to alot of people. He really did an amazing job. I noticed the other day when Jim got to the part regarding the great deception stating “even the elect will be deceived” he gave no mention or guess as to what the great deception would be. I wonder what pastors in general think the great deception will be? I mean what do they think the great deception will be in their inner most thoughts without sharing them to others or their congregations? Do you ever wonder if God has shared that vision with them? Are they just too scared to relate their thoughts for fear of losing members? I cant imagine God has left them in the dark regarding what will happen.

      Hi Richard,

      I wish I knew where to find that scripture – “even the elect would be deceived, if that were possible”. I think those last four words hold a great deal of meaning. Doesn’t that sound as if none of the elect will be deceived? I can think of only one reason that none of the elect would be deceived, and that reason is that we won’t be here. The rapture will occur before the great deception is unveiled.

      Peggy, it’s found in Matthew 24:24.

    • Dennis said

      Peggy – “For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.” Matthew 24:24.

      I’ve also wondered about that. But you know that during the Tribulation, many will come to know Christ. Could that scripture be referring to those “elect”?

      Hi Peggy, I don’t know if you already know this, but there is a site that I use everyday, BibleGateway. On the left side of the opening page is a list that gives you a way to search for any Bible Passage, Keyword in a Scripture, or Bible Topic.

      Hope that helps you.
      God bless!

      a great site for scripture where you can see the same line of scripture in every version of the bible simultaneously, parallel with each other. they also have the Hebrew and Greek translations and all major bible commentaries as well.

    • Barbara said

      Carolyn: Thank you so much for that website. I have been using a program called SwordSearcher, but I just tried the Bible Gateway and I believe it may be a lot easier to use than the one I have. I really like the feature where they put a Bible verse in context. So, I decided to look for more scriptures where God promised to protect us:

      Psalm 17:7-9 (King James Version)

      7Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.

      8Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,

      9From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.

      How can we be afraid with promises like this!

      One view is that the elect won’t be deceived because the Holy Spirit is in them.

      As shrewd and educated as Dr. Marzulli’s and other Spirit-led scholars’ insights are, they aren’t all-encompassing; the devil’s going to whip some pretty whopping tricks out of his sleeve, ones that will clobber the equilibrium of even the best-informed. While the info from sources like this BLOG is invaluable, I believe that the the reason the elect won’t be deceived is simply because the Holy Ghost is in them. Will some be badly shaken up? Sure, but deceived? Nope.

    • In A Moment said

      Another way of reading this Scripture is that the elect are not deceived because they have discernment through Yahweh’s Holy Spirit– they can not be deceived!

    • hopeful_watcher said

      I believe the Holy Spirit interpretation is the correct one.

      Funny thing about the phrase, “the elect”. It is mentioned three times on Matthew 24, first scripture states that the days are cut short, “for the sake of the elect”. This elect has special favor paid to them from the Lord. This elect are the ones who have not been “persecuted and put to death” and have not “turn(ed) away from the faith”. These are the disciples who remain to do the Lord’s will to call the wicked of the Earth to repentance. So, this elect are subject to the same deception of “great signs and miracles” as everyone on Earth, but those who retain the Holy Spirit and discernment will not be decieved. After all of the tribulations are over and after the Son of Man is seen riding on the clouds, the angels will “gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.”

      Praise be to the elect, for they are the instruments of the Most High to point the lost sheep of the world to the coming Messiah, so that they may not be lost forever to Satan.

    Hi everyone: What wonderful posts today. I had told someone a couple of weeks ago that there was no use in trying to “bug out” as some are suggesting, because there is no place to hide from today’s technology. But we have his promises: Ps 27:5 “For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock” and Ps 91:4 “He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler”. What comforting promises!

    May I share something personal? When my husband passed away 8 years ago, I felt I had lost, not only my husband and best friend, but also my security. I was aware of God’s protection, but still felt I needed a person to depend on. It took me almost five years for God to convince me that all I needed was Him. Now, although living alone, He is my strength and my only concern is for my family and friends who just refuse to believe that we are so close to His return!

    God bless all of you and give you strength as you let Him lead you each and every minute!

      Hi Barbara,

      Thank you for sharing your personal information. My husband passed away 3 years ago, and like you, I felt as if I had lost all those things, too. But through it all, the Lord has been with me. What do people do who don’t know the Lord? That would be awful.

    • Richard said

      Thats Awesome Barbara. Sorry for your loss as well Peggy.

    • Dee said

      Barbara,
      Thank you so much for sharing. I am so sorry for your loss.
      I am right now separated from my husband because of work. We see each other on the weekends. The LORD has really been my rock and comfort as I am alone (well the kids are here too, but they are young) and have had to figure out a lot of stuff on my own. We have also been without money at times and without other things. But the sweetness and revelation of the Savior is more than my troubles. amen!

  20. Mark said

    Did anyone catch this on the mainstream news?

  21. Doug said

    I think that verse is written that way to show emphasis that it is going to be a biggie.
    That if it were possible that the elect would be deceived. It ain’t possible because God keeps His word.

    Barbara, Sorry about your loss. I am glad the Lord is your strength and your help in this time.
    My wife and I often talk about losing the other as we are starting to get up there.
    We’ve had some close calls, so we understand the feeling at least.

    LA, our church prayed for you this evening. Prayer group doubled from last week. Hallelujah! We prayed for so many things including travelling mercies, His protection and annointing over you and for great healing and for the unsaved to hear His voice calling… And wow, you’ll be preaching to the congregation on Sunday. How cool is that? Pastor said that our Prime Minister told the press today that Canada stands with Israel –no matter what. We’re ready for you LA, c’mon up our American brother!

    In His Precious and Loving Name,

    Obama in Indonesia: America will never be at war with Islam

    http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/asiapcf/11/09/indonesia.obama/index.html?hpt=T1

    As a multicultural “citizen of the world” whose childhood was a residence in Indonesia, Hussein Obama made ridiculous P.C.-inspired statements that managed to offend both India and Pakistan and reveal an astounding ignorance of South Asian politics and history.
    Obama told an Indian audience that he supported India’s bid to gain a permanent seat (and veto) on the UN Security Council. Aside from the fact that this is unlikely to happen, the idea greatly offends Pakistan, a sworn enemy of India.
    Obama contradicted centuries of Indian history when he told an Indian schoolgirl that Islam is a “religion of peace” and that only “extremists” corrupt it. India has had virtually non-stop conflict with Islam since it was first invaded by Muslims in the seventh century.

    Mystery Solved? Missile Launch Could Be a Jet Contrail

    This is weird.

  26. David said

    Wow, this whole weekend has been amazing. I went to church this past Sunday, and when we were up in the pews praising the Lord, there was a message. It was actually two messages in tongues, and then an interpretation.

    Right before the message in tongues ended, I started crying heavily and it felt like the Holy Spirit just came right into me, literally into my heart and IT FELT GOOOOOD!!! I can’t seem to remember to the whole message, but I believe it was strictly for me. Don’t count me word for word, but it went something like, “With my right hand, I shall strike down your enemies. Something…. Something…. Leave your cares and burdens at my feet and worship me!” Like I said, don’t quote me word for word. This is to encourage everyone that God is still there. He’s just waiting for us to say YES! YES Lord!! I will obey! God Bless you all, and just in case something happens, I would like thank L.A. Marzulli for his work in the ministry. For opening our eyes to this insanity talked about in Bible prophecy. I feel honored to have lived in this time in history, because we will endure hard times, but the reward is just around the corner folks!

    P.S. Sorry for long post L.A! I just wanted to get this out!

    Prayer request update for Jessica – “She’s home from Children’s as of last night but still in out patient classes. Pray for a facility to open up for her so that she can still get the therapy she needs to get well, pray for physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual healing for this precious child. Improving but …still in crisis, much prayer still needed.”

    Thank you so much once again to all you who are being prayer warriors, standing in the gap for this beautiful soul.

    In Christ,

  28. I am not a trader or an economist, but I am watching the dow jones right now with bated breath. Day after weird missle(?) launch. Day before G-20 summit to talk about currency issues. Would be an interesting day for the stock market to fall. Not a prediction, but just an eye opener.

    • Richard said

      I read an interesting article yesterday regarding the stock market. The article claimed that the global elite are purposesly propping up the stock market to make it look like an attractive investment to investors. I wouldnt be surprised to see it continue to climb to 12,000 possibly 13,000 before a major event such as a “planned terrorits activity” takes it back to 6,000 to 8,000 levels. So when the double dip recession hits similar to 2008 Trillions will be lost. The end game is to destroy the middle class world wide while forming the new world order and its currency. Its about control of the people.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
