Sunday Go to Meeting Bun

by

L. A. Marzulli

Because of the ongoing riots and the possibility of the Middle East imploding, I’m going to break away from the study in Psalms that we were doing and give you my thoughts on what is transpiring over there.

My friend, Bill Salus, author of the best-selling book, Isralestine, believes that the next event, on the prophetic calendar, will be the war that is mentioned in Psalm 83. Salus may be right, and this brings about a saying that my first pastor repeated often, and I have come to embrace and it is this: Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be broken.

Here’s why I mention this. Who among us would have suggested that the Middle East would erupt in what has been called a Day of Rage, creating the instability that we see now? There is a deep dissatisfaction amongst the people, with the governments of Egypt, Yemen, Jordan, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia and other Arab/Moslem countries, that may reshape the Middle East as we know it. How does that figure into Biblical prophecy? If we go to Psalm 83, we see that there is a list of nations and these are the very countries that are imploding.

Last week the Moslem Brotherhood proclaimed that, there will be war with Israel! I believe that the Moslem Brotherhood, and Sharia Law, will emerge on top and rule the day, as Islam, is what the Egyptians know and will most likely embrace, when the dust settles.

Salus’ book covers this coming war of Psalm 83, blow-by-blow, and why I have stated that the Ezekiel 38 war will be the next event on the prophetic horizon, now, with the tumult going on over there, Salus’ scenario may be the next event, thus the adage: Blessed are the Flexible!

We know that there are three major prophecies that have yet to be fulfilled. They are Psalm 83, Ezekiel 83, and Isaiah 17. Psalm 83, is a group of Arab countries that go against Israel, similar to the 6 day war, and Israel defeats them and expands its borders.

Ezekiel 38, is a confederacy of nations – there’s not an Arab in the bunch – that: goes up against a land of unwalled villages, i.e. Israel. These nations are also defeated.

Isaiah 17, tells of the destruction of Damascus, which is the capital of Syria. This has never happened as Damascus is the longest inhabited city on the face of the earth.

The point is this, and we can apply it to the pre, mid, post, ongoing Rapture debate – I can’t believe I opened the door to endless debate, but oh well! Know and study all the positions and then watch and see which one manifests. In other words will Isaiah 17, lead to the fulfillment of Psalm 83, which then turns into the Ezekiel 38 war? We don’t know and thus, we can speculate endlessly about it, just like many of us do in regard to when we get taken out of here.

However, if we are flexible and our “doctrine” isn’t cemented in theological concrete, we can see what transpires and adjust accordingly.

In closing todays’ Bun: We see through a glass darkly, and because of that there are many opinions and interpretations of prophecy, which is one reason that we have such a diverse group on this Blog. I would suggest to hold tenaciously to the tenants of what we believe, the Virgin birth, the miracles of Jesus, the words of the prophets, the once-for-all sacrifice on Calvary, which resulted in His death, and that He rose again on the third day. That He sits at the right hand of the father, and will return physically one day to set up a literal kingdom! Then, be flexible as to what will transpire in the future in regard to Prophecy.

As a Watchman, I look and wait and ponder what I see. In my opinion, what is coming in the Middle East, is not good. The Moslems have a common enemy and that is Israel, and we see this demonstrated vociferously,  once the thin veneer of civility has been removed.  What will we see in the days ahead? Watch and be ready….

  1. and you will say, ‘I will go up against the land of unwalled villages. I will go against those who are at rest, that live securely, all of them living without walls, and having no bars or gates,(Eze 38:11)

    I believe that Ezekiel 38 says unwalled villages living securely (which they obviously aren’t not!) because this prophecy does not find ultimate fulfillment until after the millennium. Which is exactly when the New testament says it will be:

    And when the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison, and will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for the war; the number of them is like the sand of the seashore.(Re 20:7-8)

    If we just take the text at face value the timing of the Magog war is spelled out for us right there. That being said, at the time of Ezekiel’s prophecy the enemy form the North has become an idiom of an attacker which has had many fulfillment. Prophecy is a cyclical pattern. Still yet, it seems to me that the Magog war is necessarily after the millennium unless you are an Amillennialist. How else does Rev 20:7-8 make any sense?

      Wow! Cris, you have sent my head spinning. I have never heard anyone mention or teach on those verses in Revelation. Could it be????? This will require some serious study.

      Maranatha!

    • E. Gibbs said

      This is the time of the second resurrection and Satan gathers them all to make war against the Holy City brought down from Heaven and the Saints are in it and this is after the 1,000 yrs of the first resurrection of the Saints. Verse 5 below is kind of confusing. There is more of this in Zechariah 14 but a little hard for some to understand

      Re 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
      Re 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
      Re 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
      Re 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
      Re 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

      There is much to be said and taught on this that isn’t popular to most belief systems so I drop it here.

      Cris – I disagree – they are living as we speak without bars and gates – truly a land without walls. As for peace, the last time I checked the Israeli’s continue to export vegies and fruits. While much like the USA was in the cold war with Russia, Israel is on alert, but it’s citizens continue with life, they pursue their dreams. There are many who believe what you hold to, and there are also many who see it the way I just presented. This is a classic example of both of us learning to hold to our position lightly. The EZ 38 war seems to be looming…. that’s why we watch! L.A.

    • Patrick said

      Israel today in comparison to Israel past; is a land of unwalled villages. In fact it is a good indicator that a future Isreal would come as different to the one at that time. Fortified walls and gates are a remnant of the past that provide little protection in these days and time. The existing walls of most ancient cities still standing are nothing more that touristic attractions. If you want to go to the extent of calling a gated community a walled village or a border division wall in the same light maybe by the stretch of the imagination you could apply this.

    • Barbara in VA said

      Hey! I’m very “flexible” on this one. Cris’s thought was just such a new one to me.

      God bless us all!

    • David said

      I think walled, in my opinion, might be referring to the amount of defense, as in military weaponry, arsenal, etc. Although, that thought would be a contradiction to the fact that Israel is HEAVILY armed at the moment. So, I guess we should take walls, bars, and gates literally then. Plus, I haven’t yet to see any walls up in Israel, unless I’m not looking good…

    • Tomj said

      Chris…they cannot be the same battle. In Eze . they burn the weapons for 7 years and it will take 7 months to bury the dead and those who travel in the land will find the bones of the dead and in Revelation the judgement of the dead follow.

      Yes; it seemed like some green ghostly images I’ve seen in movies too. The “rider” looked like he would be facing backward instead of forward and that could easily get mixed up with computer technology; like it looked good on the drawing screen but when spliced in to the clip it was facing the wrong way? I don’t know…signs and lying wonders. I agree about not trusting the eyes…

    • CelticKevin said

      I had the same thought… Funny!

      I just hate the thought that villains *like* Saruman and Sauron may be whipping together an army of freaks & monsters in our very real world. That isn’t so funny…

    • Jeff D said

      That looked like a really bad fake to me. I usually don’t chime in on these things, but there didn’t seem anything coherent about this at all. Weird? Yes! Coherent? No!

      It certainly doesn’t add up to THE Pale Horse and Rider IHMO. There is no comparison to what The Book of Revelation says in Revelation 6:8 as far as what happens once the fourth seal is opened and the relative calm going on in this video paralleling to what is truly going to happen when that Rider does get turned loose.

      Just my two cents.

      Respectfully in Christ,

    Cris, I think you are right on the timing.

    Has anyone seen the msnbc video of the spirit horse in the riots in Egypt? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NziGk25dTKc&feature=player_embedded

    Here’s a link which shows the origin of the muslim bro. (british gov’t masonic-PTB) Why on earth would we be on board with them coming to power?

    http://redmoonrising.com/Ikhwan/BritIslam.htm

    http://redmoonrising.com/Ikhwan/MB.htm

    here’s a quote from 2nd link:
    In Part One of this study we related several allegations that the Muslim Brotherhood was created, infiltrated, or at least promoted by British Intelligence and/or British Freemasonry. Dr. John Coleman alleges that it was created by “the great names of British Middle East intelligence…”, Stephen Dorril writes that the Brotherhood was linked to British Intelligence through dame Freya Stark prior to World War II, and the Shah’s regime in Iran considered it to be a tool of British Freemasonry.

    Some Muslims will find these claims hard to believe but they should not be rejected out of hand. Hasan al-Banna was a devout Muslim who put Islam first but it should not be considered inconceivable that he was influenced by Britain’s Masonic Brotherhood, or that he accepted British aid to advance his movement, at least in the early stages. Islam was used effectively by the British outside of Egypt, so why would they not try to use it in Egypt as well?

    Freemasonry appeared in Egypt soon after Napoleon’s conquest in 1798 when General Kleber, a French Mason and top commander in Napoleon’s army established the Lodge of Isis. French Masonry dominated Egypt until British lodges began to appear after the British occupation in 1882. Freemasonry was very popular in the first half of the twentieth century, and many important Egyptians were Masons, along with the British rulers and aristocrats who occupied the country. In fact the Egyptian monarchs, from Khedive Ismail to King Fouad, were made honorary Grand Masters at the start of their reigns. From 1940 to 1957 there were close to seventy Masonic lodges chartered throughout Egypt. At one time the leaders of the Nationalist and Wafd parties were Freemasons, and many members of the Egyptian parliament were Masons as well, where they mingled with the military commanders and aristocrats of the ruling British occupation.

      Mrs. M,

      Do you not find all this is leading to the battle of Armageddon Re 16:16. The battle of gog and magog isn’t until Re 20:8 although gog and magog is mentioned in Eze. 38 it doesn’t give the time of the battle so I’m not convinced.

      E. Gibbs.

    • Mrs M said

      The last 7 years of Daniel’s 70 weeks starts with Rosh Hashana and ends with Yom Kippur. Joel tells us this:

      15 Blow the trumpet in Zion,
      declare a holy fast,
      call a sacred assembly.
      16 Gather the people,
      consecrate the assembly;
      bring together the elders,
      gather the children,
      those nursing at the breast.

      Let the bridegroom leave his room
      and the bride her chamber.

      {This is what is described in Joel 2: Leviticus 23 explains Rosh hashana:

      The Festival of Trumpets

      23 The LORD said to Moses, 24 “Say to the Israelites: ‘On the first day of the seventh month you are to have a day of sabbath rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts. 25 Do no regular work, but present a food offering to the LORD.’” }

      &
      19 The LORD replied[a] to them:

      “I am sending you grain, new wine and olive oil,
      enough to satisfy you fully;
      never again will I make you
      an object of scorn to the nations.

      20 “I will drive the northern horde far from you,
      pushing it into a parched and barren land;
      its eastern ranks will drown in the Dead Sea
      and its western ranks in the Mediterranean Sea.
      And its stench will go up;
      its smell will rise.”

      (then the former & latter rain verses)

      The Day of the LORD
      28 “And afterward,
      I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
      Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
      your old men will dream dreams,
      your young men will see visions.
      29 Even on my servants, both men and women,
      I will pour out my Spirit in those days.
      30 I will show wonders in the heavens
      and on the earth,
      blood and fire and billows of smoke.
      31 The sun will be turned to darkness
      and the moon to blood
      before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.

      The Day of Atonement

      26 The LORD said to Moses, 27 “The tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. Hold a sacred assembly and deny yourselves,[d] and present a food offering to the LORD. 28 Do not do any work on that day, because it is the Day of Atonement, when atonement is made for you before the LORD your God.

      this portion taken from hebroots.org
      The last Yom Kippur ceremony is called neilah, the closing of the gates, and is the concluding ceremony to Yom Kippur. However, this is not the rehearsal (miqra), but the real thing. At this point, it is too late to make a decision to accept Yeshua the Messiah into your life.

      Yeshua spoke of this same event in Matthew (Mattityahu) 24:27-31. In Matthew 24:31, the trumpet that is being blown is called by Yeshua the great trumpet. This is the trumpet that is blown on Yom Kippur known as the Shofar HaGadol. This trumpet will usher the return of Yeshua to rule as Messiah ben David during the Messianic age.

      The full seven years can be started in 2005 and 2009 (starting on Rosh Hashana) as these feasts start and end for a period of 7 years exactly. This doesn’t occur that way every year. I think it started in 2005.

    • E. Gibbs said

      Golly Mrs. M.

      There’s no way I see that we can get along as the 70’th week of Dan. 9 fell in time after the 69’th and that 70’th week ended 33 AD. The next yr. was a Jubilee yr., a new begining. The 70 wks. of years started with a jubilee yr and ended at one. 70 wks. of yrs are 490 years divided by 49 and so the 70 wks had 10 Jubilees. The prophecy was given on the Jubilee calendar and time marches on and so that 70’th wk, is long gone history. The prophecy started 457BC and ended the end of 33AD. It just cannot be any other way.

      You know it won’t be long until it is seen who has it right.

      This is not near as important though as the salvation issue though and that is the one to make very sure of.

      Blessings to you as I find you are dedicated to Him.

      I would take the Masonic involvement in the middle East during that time period a step further by saying that they also created “the Zionist state of Israel”!
      Their agenda is the new world order. Henry H.Klein envisioned this coming war back in 1947.

      HIDDEN HISTORY, ZIONISM AND ANTI-SEMITISM “Political Zionism is an agency of Big Business. It is being used by Jewish and Christian financiers in this country and Great Britain, to make Jews believe that Palestine will be ruled by a descendant of King David who will ultimately rule the world. What delusion! (It will lead to war between Arabs and Jews and eventually to war between Muslims and non-Muslims). That will be the turning point of history.” (Henry H. Klein, “A Jew Warns Jews,” 1947)
      “There have of old been Jews of two descriptions, so different as to be like two different races. There were Jews who saw God and proclaimed His law, and those who worshiped the golden calf and yearned for the flesh-pots of Egypt; there were Jews who followed Jesus and those who crucified Him…” –Mme Z.A. Rogozin (“Russian Jews and Gentiles,” 1881)

      E Gibbs In Ref To your earlier post The AC is Satan.
      Question IS Apollyon from the bottomless pit which makes war on the two witnesses also the Beast with 7heads rising From The Sea? You got me thinking about something!

    • E. Gibbs said

      John B.

      The beast out of the bottomless pit Rev. 11: is the same one that comes up out the earth Rev 13:11 and yes this is Apollyon of verse – – Re 9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

      The first beast of Rev 13: is the imaage beast of the one comeing up in verse 11, Satan, Apollyon Abaddon the great red dragon in that the first beast of Rev. 13: also has seven heads and ten horns but appears as a leopard like beast.

      The first beast is Satan’s New World Order beast and he gives it His Seat- – last part of Re 13:2 “and the dragon gave him “his” power, and “his” seat, and great authority”.

      Satan does this until he is allowed out and then he will take over and then world watch out !

      Yes Satan is the man at the end of the chapter.

      Eze 28:9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.
      Eze 28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
      Eze 28:14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

    My life has been a series of “If I can just accomplish this” then my life will be happy and fulfilled. I rationalize that by accomplishing these events “the accomplishment” itself will make me happy. But you know what? Each time I accomplish the goal I’ve set out for myself I’m not happy. In fact it leaves more void in my life as I search for that next “One thing.” I’ve been searching for the “That One Thing” my whole life. In 2008 I lost everything and I my mean everything including my health. During these times I found “The One Thing” My savior. My John 14:6 My redeemer.

    The following is a clip from City Slickers. Its called finding that “One Thing.” I just wish it didnt take me 37 years to be born again and find “My One Thing.”

    I have a lot of favorite songs this is one of them.
    Its called “Knowing You Jesus there is No Greater Thing” by the Maranatha Band we used to sing it at Promise Keepers all of the time.
    Its just Awesome. I really hope everyone listens to it.

    These are the Lyrics to “Knowing You Jesus there is no Greater Thing”

    All I once held dear built my life upon
    All this world reveres, and wars to own
    All I once thought gain I have counted loss
    Spent and worthless now, compared to this

    Knowing you, Jesus knowing you
    There is no greater thing
    You’re my all you’re the best
    You’re my joy, my righteousness
    And I love you ,lord

    Now my heart’s desire is to know you more
    To be found in you, and known as yours
    To possess by faith what I could not earn
    All surpassing gift of righteousness

    Oh to know the power of your risen life
    And to know you in your suffering
    To become like you in your death my Lord
    So with You to live
    And never die

    The more I seek God the more I realize the debate of “pre, mid, and post” just doesnt matter. Marantha Father

    Cris got me to thinking about another “established” teaching about Revelation–that of the four horses being released at some time in the future. I read David Lowes’s ebook,”Earthquake Ressurection”, and he concludes that immediately after Jesus’ ascension to the throne room in Heaven, He took the scroll and opened the first five seals. That would mean that everything in those first five seals have been ongoing for these past 2000 or so years–including the four horsemen. When you really stop to consider that, it does make sense. I hope I am stating his conclusions properly–but he said these first five seals were things “in the natural”. The sixth seal, which remains to be opened, are things “in the supernatural”. Something to consider?!

    Maranatha!

      I agree. revelations started to unfold when Christ took his place at the right hand of the Father The message was sent to Seven literal Churches in 90AD.

    The question about Egypt’s future was asked on Prophecy Depot’s Facebook site. Below please find the question and answer. By Bill Salus

    Q. Bill, in reading Isaiah 19 the WORD speaks of smiting Egypt…then healing it and they returning back to the Lord…even an altar is built on the borders for worship to our true God. vs. 24 says Israel shall be the third with Egypt and Assyria–a blessing in the midst of the land. My question….is this after Psalm 83?

    A. Egypt still faces two future confrontations prior to the return of Christ. First, for its participation in Psalm 83, Egypt will come under attack by the Israeli Defense Forces (I.D.F.). This appears to find fulfillment in Isaiah 19:16-18. In the aftermath of the I.D.F. victory Israel will annex at least five Egyptian cities. According to Isaiah 19:18, five of these cities will speak Hebrew. The Israelis will feel justified in claiming these cities as per Genesis 15:18, which promises them land east of the Nile River. This first confrontation occurs prior to Daniel’s Seventieth Week.

    Additionally, the Jews will set up an altar to the Lord in the midst of Egypt and a pillar to the Lord at Egypt’s border as per Isaiah 19:19. According to Isaiah 19:20-a, the altar and pillar are set up as a sign and witness to the Jewish God Jehovah. The existence of this altar suggests the Jews will be implementing the Mosaic Law inside the portions of Egypt taken over sometime after Psalm 83.

    The pillar serves as a memorial stone and is probably constructed to remind future Jewish generations how the Lord delivered the Jews through their Psalm 83 confrontation which extended into Egypt. Joshua 4:7 and Joshua 22:26-28 shed further light on this traditional Hebrew ritual.

    The second confrontation occurs when the Antichrist invades Egypt fulfilling Daniel 11:42-43. The Antichrist will come into Egypt seeking to destroy the Jewish population residing therein. Additionally, he will capture the wealth of Egypt. This takes place in the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week during the campaign of Armageddon. The Antichrist will be attempting Jewish genocide at the time.

    Could the ‘pale rider’ in the video shown in the WND story actually be the Mahadi? It seems that might be more likely in light of everything else happening right now in the Middle East.

    Why would we (USA) be on board with the Muslim Brotherhood coming to power? Perhaps because the Global Elite have determined it’s time to wipe Israel, the scourge of nations, off the map.

  8. CelticKevin said

    I love the focus on flexibility! Let’s face it, we won’t know it until it gets here! I have heard someone mention over and over that it will become self evident. Too true! ; )

    I will lay out my humble opinion, which I would never trumpet about or argue for.

    I believe that Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17 happen first and possibly at the same time. Syria is quite a military handful for Israel, so the complete destruction of Damascus may be the only option to prevent a bloody protracted fight which Israel cannot afford. It simply makes sense that the Psalm 83 prophecy occur first, because it will create a buffer around Israel and bring Israel closer to the borders that God has given to her. Israel will be increased in wealth, power, size, prestige and sheer awesomeness. Some people will realize this is God’s doing, but still too many will not see it… That burdensome stone will only grow heavier for the world.

    I also believe that the rapture of the church will precede the major tumult of Ezekiel 38 & 39. It makes sense for the church to be out of the way, so that Daniel’s 70th week can be fulfilled. I also see the rapture as being a destabilizing effect on many nations, ours included. With a weakened USA amongst other Israel friendly nations, after millions disappear in the rapture, the hooks in the jaw are likely to only sink deeper!

    Consider this: Would the USA as we know it now ever stand by and watch Russia, Iran, Turkey and more grab Israel up? Nope… Something big has to happen…

    Perhaps there will even be numerous UN sanctions and declarations against Israel??? The hooks sink deeper still!

    Gog and Magog with all of her allies will rush headlong to crush Israel and take spoil. Israel would be much more of a tempting target if her borders have expanded to control oil fields, gas fields, perhaps the Suez Canal and much more. The outcome of the Psalm 83 war would also explain the lack of mention of Israel’s immediate neighbors in this Gog and Magog conflict, because they are already subdued.

    The outcome of the war of Gog and Magog will display God’s power as we have not seen before. Israel will be delivered through His power. Israel will have taken center stage. I hope I am watching these events unfold from Heaven with the Lord.

    God bless!

      I did not want to ask this, considering that it is unpopular to talk about the rapture but, where would you squeeze the great falling away in?

    • Randyman said

      Bozz; I have to say thank you for always stretching my mind and causing me to search the Word. God bless your brother in Christ Jesus. Randy

    • CelticKevin said

      Let me put on my speculative thinking cap.

      As I see it, the falling away is already happening, but will speed up.

      The rapture “could” be a tremendous wake up call for those left behind. Perhaps a revival could result? Persecution and a great deception might be more than many of those left behind can handle.

      But this is so much more fun & worthwhile than talking about some star’s latest rehab visit. ; )

      God bless!

  9. The altar and pillar of Is. 19 are already there–it’s called the Great Pyramid of Giza!

    • LauraR said

      Lynne, Patrick Heron says that also and that the new Jerusalem could be in the shape of a pyramid, that definitely is very interesting, Satan cannot create anything only copies what God already does.

    • Bozz said

      Are you saying that the pagan Pyramid of Giza is sacred? This is a stretch. The occult dudes like Pytagoras and other later on in history have lied down in the Pyramid to receive some kind of enlightenment and performed occult ceremonies in there. I can not believe that the Great Pyramid of Giza is what you assume. Heron said it is a demonic copy cat as far as I know. That does not make it an altar of the All-mighty.

    I would post a comment regarding what I believe, but would just add to potential dissention brewing.

    If we are raptured before it all goes down,(the Tribulation) we will be slapping backs and shaking hands and praising our great Lord.

    If we are raptured at some further point down the line even to the end of it,(The Tribulation) we will be slapping backs and shaking hands and praising our great Lord.

    • Kimberly said

      :-/ I’m kinda confused as to why the rapture happens to be a touchy subject… Shouldn’t we be able to discuss things without the fear of walking on egg shells? I completely understand how it’s more harm than good when the subject of the rapture causes division… but I don’t understand why we can’t imagine/speculate/discuss it, especially when we are living in the most interesting times ever. I personally like to read everyone’s thoughts on the matter, because it causes everyone to look through a different perspective… I think it’s neat to hear how different people come to different positions (especially since it’s not a close-handed issue). However, maybe you guys have run it to the ground… but just for the sake of saying, I do like to read everyone’s ideas. Truly. :-)

      I used to side way more heavily with the Pre-Trib view… but asked myself “what if I’m wrong?” After freaking out and hyperventilating for 5 minutes, I count the cost and came to the conclusion: If a comet falls on my head, so what. If I starve, so what. If I get shaken to nothing from an earthquake, who cares. If I have to be a martyr, then I would pray for the Holy Spirit’s help and give it up. All in all, Jesus is on the other side!!! :-D

      So on the topic of the rapture… haha, if you don’t mind me asking (I would hate to be anyones rapture thorn, seriously) .. has anyone maybe thought of the fake rapture happening after the real one… like .. if they (the aliens) were to say “hey everyone… we took the first batch of humans to a nearby safe planet (just like earth) and we are taking others who decide to come… go see Jesus in the desert, He’s over there!” maybe, maybe? I was reading Isaiah 24:18, and when it said “caught in the snare” … I’m not at all saying that’s what that passage means, nevertheless, it made me think of it.

    • James said

      Most people who post here seem to agree with your healthy approach to discussion, but once in a while someone will seem to be appalled at being disagreed with, and is just unable to let go. Saw a couple of essays in this BLOG that I scrolled and scrolled and scrolled through (w/o really reading,) about rapture timing. So there: not really an answer, was it? Uh… good question though. *ahem*
      I personally hope for pre-trib, but am a little too pessimistic to really expect it. Heard convincing arguments for and against.
      Your fake rapture/explanation idea sounds pretty close. Satan and his little aliens have some kind of plan to deal with it. I’ve also read that maybe they’ll stage a fake beforehand to mess with the believers, to make them think they’ve been left, if possible. There— that’ll be $00.02 please!

    • CelticKevin said

      I guess that the rapture and some prophetic topics can easily make folks behave pretty dogmatic.

      An east going dogma and a west going dogma end up in a head on collision, with pride and relationships strewn all about.

      I too have pondered a false rapture. It would make a lot of sense, because Satan likes to pervert/copy the Lord’s ideas. What also occurs to me is that the folks caught up in a false rapture may be the main course at a nightmarish feast, instead of guests. I can imagine absolute horrors… Sad…

      Our “space brothers” are not the sort that anyone should ever get into their UFO, no matter how much candy they offer. But I am afraid there will be many eager volunteers.

      God bless!

    • Kimberly said

      Whoooooa, James… $0.02!? As in …. 2 cents!?! I don’t have that kinda money. :-O Dang, nothing is for free anymore. I think it’s a darn-tootin’ shame it can’t be discussed freely, such a waste of imagination, but… peace amongst the peeps I suppose is more important. I think we’re all hoping for the pre-trib… sometimes I wonder what my reaction would be if the aliens-before-rapture scenario happens… I might just run out in the streets screaming and professing my devotion to Jesus (the real one) and then they would beam me dead and it would be all over. Kinda morbid thought, but dramatic would be a good way to go. Hmmm, can we… pray… for … pre-trib…? Kidding. :-)

      CelticKevin… this east and west dogma fist-fight sounds very West Side Story… :-/ violent, scary, bloody, dramatic, and non-musical. It’s a shame.
      Yeah, I don’t think there is any denying the fake rapture thing, one way or another… this may be a twisted way of thinking, but the fact that the enemy is preparing a rapture, weakly proves there at least will be one…. it is sad to think about the horrors of what people will blindly fall into… it makes me sick…. speaking of sick….. has anyone seen “The Fourth Kind???” I don’t care if that specific movie was real or not… the fact is, evil does exist and so does its torment. Soooooo horrible. It took me a while to get out of the horrified state I was in after that movie… but it also ticked me off, I hate to see anyone tormented. :-( Our “space brothers” are dumb, and thank God He’s going to put an end to it… He had to remind me last night of John 16:33 the “overcoming the world” part. :-D

    • Jeff D said

      Kimberly,

      Speaking of “The Fourth Kind”, did you notice how eerily similar the real Doctor Abigail Tyler happens to take on the facial shape of the classic “Grey Alien”?

      I believe she is fully possessed and is in need of full deliverance. I have never, EVER seen a human look like this before.

      Just thinking out loud.

      In Christ,

      Jeff D

    • Kimberly said

      Yeah…. yikes! She sure does. :-( Very sad… to say the least.

      I think what bothered me most about that movie (besides the human torment) was the voices at the end of the movie. I have heard rage before, many times, but that voice at the end sounded like “the source” to rage and hatred… it made me so sick and disturbed for a while. Strangely though, if I were to recommend only two movies to people… it would be The Fourth Kind and… The Passion. One shows the gut wrenching works of the enemy, the other shows what God did to destroy those works. My goodness, thank You, Lord.

    All this futurism and preterism deception comes from the counter reformation. So I read. I have not delved into this thoroughly but I believe that is the deal. It has really messed up everything I know because I was influenced buy Chuck Missler`s teaching a lot.

    However I believe what Cris Putnam and Barbara in VA wrote is the real deal. I agree with you John, the message was sent to seven literal churches (assembly`s) but these same seven letters apply also in it`s entirety now because everything that is mentioned in those letters, still apply`s today. Nacolaitans are still here, Jezebel is still arround, and so on.

    Thanks for the input guys. It made my glass a little more bright.

    • john B said

      Agreed Bozz; The application is also for today ‘Sinful nature has not changed’ churches have Apostatized before, but this is the first time in history that we see The inter-faith thing happening where christians and pagans and all the abominable come in unity. Just stop! and Think just for a minute.

      (((everybody can worship the God of his choice that which he perceives divine in his own mind Now in unity of faith))) That my friend is the Image (the perception of mind of the ecumenical God) Who brings this Image to life? Answer: The False Prophet does.
      This false prophet is an ecumenical religious leader! Q: Who suits?
      Well He has to be The Lawless one, The man of sin, The apostate, the new Judas, the betrayer of the Faith in The midst leading the Final Apostasy before the return of Christ.

      Now; I do believe that The Futurists are being sidetracked By the Israel issue taking Focus away from the rise of The Antichrist. even to the point of believing that they will be raptured before He comes on the scene.

      I have been called a preterist and i don’t even know what it means!!

      Who invented those words any way? it is not in my Bible. Oh i know!!! these theological scholars Did, ye that’s who. Shame on them.

      John b

    • Bozz said

      I do not want to sound weird but it seems with this one the truth lies somewhere in between. Preterism is a teaching that everything mentioned in the book of revelation got fulfilled till 70AD. Futurism is a teaching that everything in the book of revelation is going to be fulfilled in the last seven years. By the way, Michael Heiser, the only christian scholarly source I found who studies all this ancient languages, says that no where in the bible is mentioned a seven year tribulation period. That comes from the futurism that puts the 70th week of Daniel in the FUTURE! Then people look at the revelation 13 beast and wonder what it might be while it has been here in front of their noses since Constantin. That is the purpose of the counter reformation to hide the real perpetrators and protestantism in America and elsewhere fell for it hook, line and sinker.

      I have to study the book of Ezekiel more to get to the bottom of some things. Just a thought: I think the bible is a finished book. Meaning everything is all ready written down. The millenium of rest and that the adversary will be loosed once again after the millenium (gog and magog). If this is not true then the prophets of old have not revealed everything but I believe they did. That is why what Cris at the begining wrote sounds logical to me. But I do have to read more Ezekiel to be certain.

    666 Update: Feds Set Deadline For Biometric Identity Smart Card Program

    Agencies have until March 31 to come up with an implementation plan for a government-wide biometric-based credential system for employees and contractors.

    Slideshow: Inside DHS’ Classified Cyber-Coordination HeadquartersFederal agencies have until March 31 to come up with an implementation plan for a new government-wide identification system that leverages biometric technology and smart cards.

    3M is at CES 2011 Las Vegas showing off a 32″ multi-touch display that’s capable of receiving 60 simultaneous touches as input.The federal government has stepped up plans to use the Federal Personal Identity Verification (PIV) system to verify employee and contractor credentials to access federal facilities and IT networks and systems, according to a memo from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued Thursday.

    The move to the system is mandated by Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD 12), a federal cybersecurity initiative the government said is aimed at increasing security and efficiency, reducing identity fraud, cutting costs and protecting personal privacy. Cybersecurity is a chief concern of the federal government, and the system is one of many it’s taking to provide more security both internally and externally.

    Before I make the following statment I want to say that Lynns knows I love him like a brother and there is nothing I wouldnt do for him or his ministry.

    So when Sandie left several weeks ago she continued to email me and we talked. It became another lesson for me in life. I judged her. I called her inappropriate. I called her a troll. I called her many things. Bottom line I inappropriatly judged her as many did on this site. Many of us have opinions that dont always seek each others approval but that doesnt mean there not valid. They are just opinions outside of the norm.

    I just want to say that Sandie loves the Lord with all of her heart and she is passionate about getting others to think about the word. I cant tell you how many times we have gone back and forth many times with different opinions but like I said I know one thing she loves the lord.

    I would love to see Lynn allow her to come back and I would like to see others welcome her back.

    Did Jesus not say “You who have never sinned cast the first stone” Dont we all judge inappropriately?

    • LauraR said

      Richard, all I am going to say is your post makes me feel like I just got punched in my stomach.

    • Late Night Lisa said

      I don’t feel punched in the stomach.

      She may be passionate about getting others to think about the word -but it’s at the expense of the unity of the others here. And no- it’s not about Truth verses Error – It’s about her perspective/opinion verses others here.

      The way she handles herself lacks many of the fruits of the spirit. That may just be a lack of maturity in the things of the Spirit. I’m sure if she apologized for her behavior & was willing to be “more flexible” those in Christ wouldn’t have an issue w/her coming back.

      The only thing I learned from this situation is how someone can come in & stir up discord among the brethren & the stubborn pride & lack of love that comes w/it.

      And yes, we can all be guilty of this @ one time or another.

      How can one truly claim they love the Lord so much yet treat others w/such condescending disrespect? Is she willing to acknowledge that the way she expresses herself via blogging needs to be changed? It’s not the “What” she says (Although I don’t agree w/much of that.) but “How” she says it.

      I’m not claiming I have the answers to that but can only refer to what the word says: “Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart.” 1 Peter 1:22

      We all agree on the fundamental truths of Christ crucified. I think the Lord is watching us to see if we will humble ourselves & get along w/each other in Love above & beyond the other perspectives/opinions we hold in regards to the non-essentials.

      Also, if someone is chastened & repentant are we willing to restore them w/love back into fellowship?

      I don’t think that it was unjust for L.A. to block her from commenting due to the discord occuring on his blog. She was warned, & also asked to chat w/him on the phone. She opted for neither.

      Following is how we are supposed to function:

      “For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.

      Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function,so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.

      We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith.If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach;if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.

      Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.

      Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody.If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. (Romans 12:3-17)

      Ditto LNL, I am too tired to even bring her up, I do wish her well, and am not against her return, she has to be the one to humbly ask LA in her time, which may be too soon. I do pray for her I don’t miss the nonsense and dirision she brought with her.

    • carolyn said

      She seems to want to argue. She seems to argue just for the sake of arguing, and to get everyone else to argue. It is very disruptive, not constructive. It seems to delight and amuse her. I don’t like it. If she wanted to change her ways, I would gladly want her back. But if she comes back with the same attitude, I for one, will just NOT respond to her.

    • Richard said

      Late Night Lisa, Laura did Carolyn did John the Baptist come to supply or exemplify Unity? No he didnt! In fact he rocked the San Hedrin and Herod like an 9.0 earthquake!

      Lastly I leave you with this question LNL, Laura and Carolyn. Who amongst the disciples embraced Matthew the tax collector? No one. So what makes any of you think you can judge the heart of another which only God can judge?

      Get over yourselves ladies. Where is the love of christ?

      Throw all the scripture you want at me it doesnt matter. The arguement is mute!

      Was Ghandi right when he said “I like your Jesus I just dont like your christians because they dont act like Jesus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    • LauraR said

      Richard, get over ourselves!!?? Just go back to this blog on Christmas day and read on. You have a short memory, I do not know her, but do know how she made her presence known. If you want to like La suggested to start her own blog and join her and help her, I am glad you converse with her. We all said in our responses we wouldn’t mind having her back, so there is the love of Christ here, take a good hard look at her fruits. If you don’t mind Richard you should ask LA what he thinks about that, after all it’s his blog and he gave her many chances to come here and fellowship, it’s not my fault Sandie can’t control herself and he himself gave her the boot. So if you wish to be angry take it up with the owner of this blog,blessings to you Richard.

    • Richard said

      Larua, I dont have a short memory I remember arguing with Sandie non-stop and it goes back alot further than Dec 25th.

      I saw a different side of Sandie not seen on the blog. Again LA knows if we are in a fox hole together I would take a bullet for him.

      I’m just saying everyone on this blog cast judgement against her.

      What did Matthew 7:5 say?

      You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

      If Sandie wants to email LA and speak with him she will all I am saying is I think everyone judged her including myself.

      So now all of you can judge the fruit one produces? Thats Rediculous!!!!!

    • Jeff D said

      Richard,

      Just look at what your post of the subject matter alone has caused.

      Was it really needed? Sadly all it did was opened what were once closed wounds. There is an old saying that I am sure you are aware of that says, “Let sleeping dogs lie”

      I believe that is the case with Sandy.

      Personally I am happy the two of you have been able to get along and share your faith in the Lord. But as another saying goes which I firmly believe applies here, “‘Discretion is the better part of valour”.

      Respectfully in Christ,

      Jeff D

    • Late Night Lisa said

      Richard, you are obviously buying into Sandie’s
      “Rock The Boat Mentality” & her self-explained reasons (excuse) for her behavior.

      So now you are going to pick out an example of the greatest prophet- anointed in the womb – John the Baptist- and compare Sandie’s actions to him?

      Sorry, but I’m not buying it. Sandie sounds like a clanging cymbal. I’ll ask you again- where is her love for the brethren who don’t agee w/her?

      I’m not in agreement with you & this was your response: “Throw all the scripture you want at me it doesnt matter. The arguement is mute!”

      It could be that the Lord is working in Sandie’s life by her being ousted from L.A.’s blog. That was a correction. All we are asking is where is the repentance & change of heart? When that comes then it’s time for restoration & she would be loved back w/out any resentments or bitterness.

      And I’m not “throwing” scripture at you Richard, as if it’s a negative thing. I guess you are so defensive of Sandie right now that it’s not even productive trying to reason w/you @ the moment.

      We should all look at this scripture & do a self-examination – I certainly do & fall short but this is how the Lord works in us & then through us. Examine the scripture & then apply it to ourselves. If correction needs to be made then ask the Lord for help since in our flesh we will fail every time.

      None of us have it perfectly but Sandie is not the annointed one to come here and be a “hammer” of the Lord – or whatever she thinks she’s supposed to do. We are to Love each other above all & sometimes the Lord uses tough love though the Body of Christ to correct & restore. That is how the early Church was set up & is a model for us today – even in the blogg-es-phere.

      “If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

      Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

      Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

      For we know in part and we prophesy in part,but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.

      When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.

      Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

      And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

      (1 Corinthians 13:1-13)

    • Rose from Kentucky said

      This is a re-post of what I wrote the day after Sandie was booted:

      Rose from Kentucky said
      January 19, 2011 at 1:07 pm
      I want to examine some of Sandie’s tactics and statements so in future this kind of mayhem can be avoided.

      The first was her method of attack – I’ll call it the dishonest question, or the baited hook. In one of the earlier posts, Matts asks a question about Jehovah’s witnesses and Jeff answers him. Then Matt thanks him and they move on. What Sandie would do is ask a question, someone who is eager to help another Christian would answer, and then Sandie would either disagree with something in the answer, or ask another question that was laced with condescension or sarcasm. The person who answered the question would be thrown into the defensive, and the debate would be off without hope of reconciliation because the only way she would be placated is to agree with her and come under her “wing”. Folks, this is the spirit of Jezebel in operation. It is dishonest and manipulative. None of her questions were honest.

      Secondly, she said twice to me that I was judging her, and she was 100 per cent correct. It is absolutely appropriate to judge behavior. We are called, in love, to hold one another accountable for what we do and say. That is why we have laws, courts, police… that is why parents correct their children and use time outs (or spank…), and that is why we have church discipline. It is not a hateful thing, but a loving thing to pull a brother or sister off a track that would lead him or her to destruction. It’s called tough love. Disagreeing with someone is not hatred or judgment, but showing contempt or insulting that person for his or her beliefs most definately is.

      Some of your posts are so full of love and grace in the face of raw contempt that they brought me to tears. We must remember that we are to be as gentle as doves, but as cunning as serpents. Because we deal with serpents every day.

    • Rose from Kentucky said

      I want to remind folks:

      Sandie lied.
      Sandie showed no respect for L.A. Marzulli’s intellectual property.
      Sandie disdained L.A.’s attempt to reach out to her.
      Sandie insulted and showed contempt for anyone who disagreed with her.
      Sandie purposely ignored Scripture that disproved her points.
      And now, Sandie is manipulating a very kind-hearted man to weasel her way back onto this blog.

      I don’t know if Sandie has snakes in her heart, but her behavior is very snake-like.

    • LauraR said

      Thankyou for your post Rose, I thought we were suppose to be fruit inspectors, and didn’t the Lord say “you will know them by their fruits.” What you posted I thank you and brother Jeff D. I am not judging anyone’s heart as in a previous post by Richard, am only judging bad fruit, behavior. Isn’t it irresponsible not to judge the fruit? I can only speak for myself and am not speaking for anyone else.

    REVOLUTION IN EGYPT AND THE HIDDEN HAND – Financial Sense

  16. Late Night Lisa said

    Here is a different perspective on the Egypt situation from a Pastor who is from Egypt.

    Hey Everyone,

    Update from Egypt. I know everyone is asking the question, why is the Egyptian people revolting. Here is whats happening, as all of you know Egypt is a Muslim Country, under Islamic rule and Sharia Law. For many years the Egyptian people have not been able to speak freely as well as freedom of religion. Under Sharia Law the current regime uses this to oppress the Egyptian people for the last thirty years. Under sharia Law there is no democracy. Not only that, they didn’t try to stop the persecution against the Coptic church in Egypt. Earlier on in the beginning of the year there was a terrorist attack by a suicide bomber at a church in Alexandria. The Coptic Christian Egyptians started to object and demonstrating in the street against the attack on their church. Thousands of Coptics started a peaceful demonstration in the street to get the government to hear their voices and object that no one from the current regime and government had moved forward with any kind of punishment. The church in Egypt was praying that God will stand beside his church and protect the Christians in Egypt. On 1/25/11 a group of college students started to gather together in a peaceful demonstration against the current regime. Thousands and thousands start joining them due to the corruption, oppression, and economic situation in Egypt from the current regime. The Spirit of Awakeness started to move in the street of Egypt and many millions of Egyptians start seeing the danger of the current regime, and its corruption. In the beginning it was a peaceful and good demonstration, to get their voices heard and to seek change, but suddenly the Muslims brother hood start to join the protesters and the demonstration became more violent each day.

    We all need to understand that the Muslims brotherhood is very organized, and a strong group in Egypt. They are the founder of Al-Qaida . They have the resources, the people, and are very aggressive. Now they are using the situation in Egypt to turn Egypt under the Muslim brotherhood. That is why we are witnessing violence now in the street of Egypt because of the rising numbers of Muslim brotherhood. The situation is perfect for the Muslim Brotherhood to take over and run the Egyptian government. They are hiding behind the current situation where the attention is removed from them and blame is on the government. If a new election takes place, forty percent of Egyptians do not read and write whereas the perfect situation for fraudulent voting and taking rule in Egypt. Please pray that God will give the Egyptian people the wisdom to see the danger behind the involvement of the Muslim brotherhood. Also, we need to pray for the safety of the Egyptian people for God to answer His children’s prayers and to get ride of the corrupted regime which has for many years been under Islamic Laws. Pray for what will happen this Friday when Mubarack is forced to leave. You can see me speaking of the crisis in Egypt on Fox New at:

    “The lord all mighty will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, assyria my handwork, and Israel my inheritance”-

    (Isaiah 19:25)

    I believe what’s happening now in Egypt is the fulfillment of this verse, and God will use what happened to advance the gospel in the Middle East and Israel.

    Blessings

      That is interesting and makes perfect sense. Satan is trying to co-opt what God’s people started. It helps to know how to pray. Thanks!

    The Wall will come down, after the 2011 war …. between now and ….. ?
    there will be no need for the wall anymore.

    Ezekiel 35 is the next war,
    Isaiah 17,
    Psalm 83,
    etc …

    Ezekiel 38 is not the next war.

    Israel IS A WALLED CITY today.
    (the anti-terrorist fence) which is STILL NEEDED at this time.

    After Damascus is gone,
    and ALL of Israel’s (border) enemies are gone,

    Ezekiel says “WHILE THE WHOLE EARTH REJOICES,
    I WILL MAKE YOU DESOLATE”.
    (list’s all the ancient names of the exact people who live their today.)
    And the same list of the enemies MISSING in Ezekiel 38.

    The wall WILL SOON COME DOWN (very possibly 2011)

    And the whole earth will rejoice (for awhile)
    The space Brothers will save them from (Ezekiel 35) (nuclear) armageddon.
    The RESTRAINER will no longer restrain iniquity, evil,
    every believer will be REDEEMED,
    and the answer-man will come (WITH LYING SIGNS AND WONDERS)
    at his APPOINTED TIME. (he can not come until his appointed time)

    Everything IS IN PLACE for the greatest day in Human history !

    After 2,000 years of looking for Christ’s promise of redeemption,
    and being laughed at, and cursed, and killed (espicially the 20th century.)

    REDEEMPTION WILL COME, (it’s only been 2,000 years ….) = 2 days

    Who elses WORD is still good 2.000 years after it was promised ?
    JESUS CHRIST IS THE LIVING WORD OF GOD !
    THE ONLY ONE WITH THE WORD’S OF ETERNAL LIFE.

    As the earthquakes and (criminal) wars, and the planned INSANITY of the
    “perfect storm” becomes more obvious each day,
    as it was in the days of Noah, THEY will mix their seed with the seed of man as they did before the flood, turning human DNA to their beast DNA, and man will no longer be human or able to be saved.

    Ezekiel describes how Israel’s enemies are calling for blood,
    and He promises them blood (their own blood)
    It’s amazing that through Ezekiel, God spoke to the enemies that surround Israel today, and says that He hears their present day curses
    (2700 yrs ago?)

    Today, Israeli’s live with the awareness, that at any moment … thousands,
    THOUSANDS, of missiles could rain down on them.

    We are about to see prophecy fullfilled, before our eyes, anyday now …

    How REAL is God’s Word ….. WATCH !

    The moon god, allah, is about to be embarassed,
    WHEN (allah=destroyer) he attacks “the apple of God’s eye”

    I pray many muslims will be delivered from the DECEPTION of islam

    Couple things I feel led to share.

    1 this green rider. In revelation, he is the last. Before him comes famine. While I do agree there is much famine, I do not believe it has gotten as bad as it will when the 3rd rider appears. This green rider, I think it wise to not jump to conclusions.

    2 ezekiel 38 also says that ethiopa would also be fighting too. Is there anything that hints at them getting involved in this coming conflict.

    3 lotta aliens in the superbowl today. Cowboy & aliens. Transformers. Ancient alien esque commercials. The reaction form my “friends” was… “oh, that’s cool” I unfortunately had no response.

    • Cheryl said

      The football was the only decent thing, too many aliens and the half time show was worse than expected(I wasn’t expecting much…), sure the showiness might have been entertaining but they took the Lord’s name in vain over and over in one song and the last time I thought they’d say it the guy said gosh. If they said oh my allah or buddha, they’d get flack, why are we so silent? Why don’t we stand up more for the Lord’s name?

    • CelticKevin said

      Yeah, there have been lots of aliens, robots, transhumans, beasties and other images, all of which could make heart fail if it came upon the world. Interesting…

    • Matt said

      Cheryl. I agree, the halftime show was horrible..I was thinking people actually like this? When Slash came out I thought ok, maybe there is hope after all till Fergie or whatever her name is began to sing,,YIKES!!! Who told that woman she could sing? I gave up and tuned into the Puppy Bowl on animal planet.

    • Kimberly said

      Oh my gosh… the Puppy Bowl is the BEST!!! The only thing alien that invaded was the Bissell demonstration and maybe the strange referee guy.

    • Matt said

      I can handle Bissell demonstrations, I will run away from any Kirby demonstration, what ever you do, never let them into your house unless you want house guest for a week, (or buy a vacuum cleaner)

    • Late Night Lisa said

      I didn’t know what I was getting myself into the other day when a Kirby demonstrator came to our house.

      The sales pitch was this company (didn’t say Kirby) had a new machine & they wanted to introduce it to the public so they would clean two rooms of carpet for free. I was wondering why they asked me what type of vacuum I had? Why would that matter?

      This guy comes out w/a large box w/the Kirby parts in it & begins to set in up in my Family Room. He goes through the entire speal & then wants me to sign on the dotted line-and then…..he will clean the carpet w/the vacuum I just bought.

      The thing was over 2K & I didn’t even particularly like the way it “dry cleaned” w/foam. The suction for regular vacuuming seemed better than average. I was supposed to be impressed that the Kirby Co. is owned by Warren Buffet so no worries of him going out of business.

      Well, there was no way I was going to plop down that kind of money & if I did I was going to talk it over w/my husband 1st. The salesman kept trying to convince me to buy it anyway & basically told me to lie to him. Since I was the one who did the carpet cleaning why does he need to know about it? I could just hide it in my closet & he will be so impressed by the great looking carpets & upholstery that when he finds out he won’t be upset.

      I told him I used to sell things that cost a whole lot more than the Kirby Vacuum & I didn’t tell my clients to lie to their spouses. After they talked it over they would come back & buy it from me anyway.

      So he knocked off $500 from the price & put a credit paper in front of me. I stressed that I WAS NOT going to buy the Kirby w/o thinking it over & he could leave w/o cleaning one thing – Which he did.

      That was the most underhanded lying sales pitch I’ve ever seen! So Kirby- That is what your known for in my eyes.

    • Kimberly said

      Poor Kirby, it’s not its fault that it’s super lame… yeah it is. In my past, there have been 1…2……3(?) Kirby statues in my house, all of them displayed in closets here and there. Mine have been known to weigh a mega-ton and spit out (SPIT OUT) debris!!! It’s an… Anti-Vacuum that should be thrown into the abyss!

    • Matt said

      I wouldn’t exactly call Kirby high pressure sales, however, when they bring handcuffs and police scanners with them to the demonstration one has to wonder :)
      All joking aside, one time I had to go to work and they would not leave…I’m serious, they kept bring in more people and doing more demonstrations to where my carpet looked like a sand storm had hit it, and, it look to the neighbors as if I was throwing a house party. I had to actually threaten to call the law out and even then they move like turtles, if they do that to me can you imagine what they would do to someone a little less seasoned? The vacuum started at a ridicules price like over 1000 dollars, by the end of the abuse I endured miraculously it came down to something like 599.00 plus I get to keep the free gift..(5 dollar gift card to Chuck E Cheese)…Your home may be clean as a whistle but if you listen to the Kirby people, you will be convinced you live in filth and squalor…and those dust mites..Ohhhhh those dust mites…I never did see any, but the good people at Kirby swears on their reputation they are there :) Oh what I wouldn’t do for that 5 dollar gift card to Chuck E Cheese, it might sound good but don’t let them in..:)

    We didn’t really discuss this “pale horse” rider here? If those aren’t “spots on the lens” behind the spirit looking creature they look like small orbs following to me.

    • carolyn said

      I hadn’t noticed it before, but you’re right LNL, it does look like small orbs following to me too.

    • Patrick said

      I like the logic that all things are possible but few things are probable.

      IMHO this is clearly a deception.
      a. Manipulated film – 90% probability (including the orb anomaly which tracks in sync with the rider)
      b. Filming anomaly – 5% probability
      c. Demonic deception – 5% probability
      d. Message from GOD – 0% probability
      Strangely I got the same feeling with this film as with the Orb over the Dome of the Rock, as if I had seen a similar event in another film at some time in the past, almost a Deja Vu feeling for me.

    • LauraR said

      LNL, makes me wonder if anyone on the ground saw this, and thanks for bringing up the orbs didn’t see it until you did. Could it also be a hologram?

    Oddly, there are some Christians(?) who I know, that think the aliens coming is a good thing. How asleep is that?

    • CelticKevin said

      Yikes! I am afraid there are more folks like that than we know. The coming deception has to be devilishly good to succeed.

      It also concerns me that this is all too often a taboo topic amongst Christian circles. Just the other day, one of my Christian coworkers made a mocking jab at the topic (and me I guess). : (

      How can people be so oblivious or resistant to such a blatant plot thread that is unfolding all around us? At least give it a little considerations is all I could hope for.

    • Bozz said

      Here is the catch. Define the word Christian in our time. That`s the purpose of the great falling away.

    Update for Matt~
    Replied to your post on yesterday’s thread at #26.
    “Moment”

    • Matt said

      In A Moment, thanks for your kind words, it’s most appreciated.

      Vsiual Clift, I could only sample the newest album (yes I said album :)
      The music really brings me back, its almost sounds as if they are stuck in a time warp, what I mean by that is I use to listen to almost the same exact type of music in years past…they obviously have talent, so many different bands come to mind as I sampled the tracks but yet they remained true to themselves. On a few songs I heard traces of Emerson Lake and Palmer, King Crimson, Marillion, Rainbow and even Rush one song in paticular, Sweet Conviction I believe it was, also the song Confessions in Time reminded me of a few songs by Kansas another (somewhat) Christian band
      Vsiual Clift sounds like a great band to listen to on a road trip, the kind of music you listen to and look down and your doing 95 mpg on the interstate :)…(not that I do that) it just seems you can kind of get lost in the sound of this band.. What I like about the bands music is, if you’re a fan of this type of sound they produce, which I have not heard in a long while, this band is Christian and also it allows you to listen to new releases of this type of musical genre,,, thanks for sharing that band with me, took me down a trip through memory lane.

    • In A Moment said

      Hi Matt~
      You are most welcome. I’ve been wanting to share their sound with someone… and you seemed the perfect choice (for some “odd” reason. Heh heh:^D) Funny that you should mention Kansas because I almost included their guitarist Kerry Livgren in that post. Apparently he became a believer after a flirtation with new age beliefs? Anyway, glad you give thumbs up to Visual Cliff. Wonder why you can only hear their one CD? If you go to the Visual Cliff store at Amazon you should then see a couple of their other recordings. Click on purchase MP3 (you won’t automatically have to buy it but you get the opportunity to hear more of their sounds.) Speaking of music, have you ever heard the sounds of “Zulli”? Our lovely blog host is an accomplished musician. Great stuff! His voice and musical textures kinda reminds me of Peter Gabriel. Well, time to carry on with the Lords’ day. Blessings to you and your family.
      “Moment”
      P.S.
      I did note that you used the word ‘album’. If it’s any consolation to you, this sister here graduated high school in 1970! So there;^p
