Is it Supernatural?

Commentary & Analysis

L. A. Marzulli

In Watchers 2, Signs in the Heavens & Earth, we ask the question, are all the floods, tsunami’s, earthquakes, wars and rumors of wars, tornado’s, droughts, famines, pestilence, volcanic activity, fish and animal die offs, business as usual or is it something more?

In my opinion we are looking at the “softening of the objective,” which is military parlance, meaning that  before troops are sent in, aircraft, and artillery, softens the intended target area. Are we looking at the same type of strategy being deployed by The Fallen One? Let me put forth a theory here. We know from 2nd Thessalonians that: He restrains until He is taken out-of-the-way. The question is, who is the “He?”  There are some that believe it is the Holy Spirit, while others posit that Michael, the arch-angel is the restrainer. We are told in Revelation that Michael fights the devil, and the devils angels and then Satan, the dragon, the Fallen One, is cast to earth. I don’t believe that this has  happened yet, but I do think that the protection that we have been under has been withdrawn.

In the fall of 2009 I BLOGGED that I had felt something shift. What I meant by this was that something had shifted in the realm of the spirit. I cautiously wrote about it and shortly afterward we saw the rise of earthquakes, floods, tsunami’s etc, that are now becoming commonplace. Is it possible that there has been an orderly retreat of the angels of heaven?  We know from the Book of Job and other texts that the Fallen One, can and will manipulate the weather to destroy.  We see this as he sends a great wind to destroy the house of Job’s sons and daughters.  Is it possible that Michael has pulled back and now we are seeing the “handiwork ” of the Fallen One? I believe we are in the birth-pangs not the tribulation, thus we are seeing an increase in the frequency of these disasters… there is something every week folks.

In closing today’s post: Is it possible that supernatural forces are now manifesting in ways that we have never seen before? Are these same forces responsible for the uprising that we see in the Middle East? Is the so-called “Arab Spring” being triggered by events happening in another dimension, the second heaven, the realm of the Fallen One? All of this is creating uncertainty, instability, and a sense of dread and fear. Is what we are seeing deliberate, so that when we reach a tipping point, lets say after a nuclear exchange in the MIddle East, our space brothers will come and “save us?” I believe that what we are seeing, these tragic disasters that happen weekly may, in fact have supernatural origins….

We are now taking Pre-orders for Watchers 2 – Signs in the Heavens and Earth.

Place your order and save $5. go towww.lamarzulli.net

Why are the nations of the world in turmoil?  What is happening with the sun and the moon? Why is it that birds are dropping out of the air dead, and why have fish numbering into the millions suddenly died without explanation?  Why are there sinkholes of gigantic proportions appearing all over the earth, and what is happening with volcanic eruptions in Japan, Italy and Iceland? And what about the UFO seen over the Temple Mount? Something has changed, and Watchers 2 will try and investigate if what ancient texts have said for millenniums are true — that we are entering a period where there will be wars, earthquakes, and famines — including signs in the skies and the heavens. L.A. Marzulli will comment as well as interview experts on this volume. Including: Chuck Missler, Rabbi Aaron Parry, Stan Deyo and Jim Wilhelmsen and Helena Lehman. Dr. Roger Leir will also give us his update on alien implants.

NOTE: We are in post production with 45 minutes completed! We should wrap it up this week and then manufacture the DVDs. We will most likely ship in about 3 weeks. Thanks for your patience. L. A. Marzulli

    I have an important question. Every time the “natural” disasters happen we see people here post opinion or cite links that it’s caused be HAARP, UFO’s, God, and Satan or a combination of all 4. There are videos posted of UFO’s flying over the scene or a haze caused by HAARP with nearly every one. My question is why is there differing opinion? Isn’t the important thing that it’s happening?

    In my opinion God told us what would happen but that doesn’t mean He’s the one causing it. The Scripture just reports on what’s happening. Satan COULD be using HAARP and his UFO’s to aid him but is that really important? The fact is it’s happening and that’s all the matters so why argue about what specefic thing caused each event?

    • Sundown Lady said

      Cappie,

      It is important that it’s happening, but some want to probe WHY it is happening. It is interesting to read what other people are thinking about it. We have the right to a free exchange of ideas and opinions in this blog, regarding the topics of the day,(thankyou Jesus), and it’s fun to express them. It’s a form of dialog, debate, if you will. It stimulates the thinker.

      SL

    • Captain Eagle said

      I never said you didn’t have a right to debate but when every time you get 101 theories as the specefic why doesn’t that make it harder to get taken seriously by others who aren’t aware what’s going on? I’ve sent people here and they’ve seen that and brush me off as a “kook” because of things like that. If they do that to me, whom they know, what’s a stranger going to do? What are the friends of others going to do? I don’t care if people want to speculate but it is the same debate every time so I guess I don’t see the point. I just wonder how many people who may have listened get turned off when they see that stuff in action is all.

    • Frank said

      Good point cap. While it is interesting to speculate why, in that way, we need to keep site of the real why. Which is, creation is groaning awaiting the return of Jesus. Jesus said these birthpangs would be coming, and point to His return, He didn’t say, “Ok, UFOs will cause 1/4 of eq, HAARP and the kings of the earth 1/2 and satan will directly cause the remaining 1/4″

      He said when we see these things, its because His return is soon, and to look up.

      So, while we can have fun specualting, and maybe getting close to the truth (or not), we should focus less on the speculation, and more on what we know for sure, Christ’s soon return.

    • Sundown Lady said

      So, are you suggesting LA Marzulli’s blog should be limited to being a voice for evangelism?

    • Frank said

      Well, not necessarily. I guess I would say, and maybe cap would agree, is that we should be more discerning about what we get into. That’s why we have the forum, for all the crazy stuff.

      Not saying its good or bad either way, as I enjoy the weirdness.

    • Captain Eagle said

      Sundown – LA says what I’m saying all the time. You know, about not agreeing on what causes this stuff. Just that’s it’s real, burgeoning, and not going away. I would also say that what I’m saying about this is akin to what he says about rapture debate. We know it’s going to happen but we don’t know when. Why pointlessly debate it? There are plenty of Biblical truths we can know for certain, why waste time on the ones we may never know (if we are rapture pre trib) and if we are here it will become evealed to us then.

      I never said it offended me personally that people debate this stuff. I just know it turns some people off that I’ve tried to introduce to this blog and I know everyone means well but when every single time an event happens you always get “It’s HAARP,” “No, it’s UFO’s”, “No, it’s God’s judgement on (fill in the country)” etc. people look at that and brush us off as kooks.

      That said, I don’t believe I ever saw anyone post here what LA mentioned today, about Satan being able to control the weather because he did so in several places in Scripture. We should focus on things like that so when people like that one news anchor say things like “Did what happen to Japan mean that God punished them or that God is all powerful and just didn’t care, or that God isn’t all powerful”. If we could all tell them about the veil of protection and that Satan did control weather in Biblical times and point them to the verses just think of how we nipped their attack in the bud. To me that seems to be more productive for Christ than to sit around blaming every excuse for these events.

      I’m sorry if I offended anyone. It wasn’t my intent but please think about what I’m trying to say.

    So, I had a simialr thought last night.my wife and I were talking about ultraman, and I said why wait til the giant monster destroys half the city? Why not send ultrman first?

    She said, because if they did, we wouldn’t see how dangerous the monster is, and we wouldn’t see how heroic ultraman is. So I thought that’s basically what satan is doing. We see all this bad stuff happening, some satan’s fault, some not. But he’ll appear on the scene as antichrist with all the answers to stop the “giant monsters”then we’ll accept him as a hero.

    Who said cheesy monster movies couldn’t be great parables of truth?

    I dont know if other blogers have heard about the Aztec UFO Crash? I ‘ve never heard of it.
    What 13 to 14 4 foot burned bodies?

    Coast to Coast last night

    Investigative reporter Linda Moulton Howe presented a 3-part report on a UFO crash near Aztec, New Mexico in 1948. The crash recently received attention when it was apparently referred in the ‘Hottel memo,’ one of the FBI’s released documents on their new ‘Vault’ website. She interviewed researcher Scott Ramsey, who along with Suzanne Ramsey and UFO investigator Frank Warren have written a book, The Aztec Incident: A Recovery in Hart Canyon, which will come out later this year.

    Ramsey discussed the Hottel memo’s link to a crashed disc in Hart Canyon (see sketch below), burned alien bodies, and earlier UFO books by Frank Scully, and William Steinman which reported on the 1948 incident near Aztec. According to witnesses, the metallic craft, which was about 100 ft. in diameter had a staircase that came out, and portholes from which they viewed about 14-16 charred bodies of small beings that weighed around 40 lbs. each, and had 4-fingered hands, Ramsey recounted. Amid much military secrecy, the craft was reportedly taken to Los Alamos, he noted.

    Who gave coalition forces in Libya the right to eliminate Gaddafi? That’s the question Vladimir Putin’s been asking, during an official visit to Denmark. The Russian Premier also said NATO’s effectively joined one of the warring sides in the conflict. And more responsible action should be taken instead.

    Washington Prepares War Against China

    “Caesar Obama has done Bush one step better. Caesar Obama has taken the US to war against Libya without even the pretense of asking Congress for authorization. This is an impeachable offense, but an impotent Congress is unable to protect its power. By accepting the claims of executive authority, Congress has acquiesced to Caesarism. The American people have no more control over their government than do people in countries ruled by dictators.”

    What is Evil

    there is no such thing as darkness
    just the absence of light
    there is no such thing as cold
    just the absence of heat
    there is no such thing as evil
    just the absence of righteousness

    He that knoweth to do good and does not
    do it to him it is sin (evil)

    I do believe there are degrees of sin
    ONE conciquence (death) but different
    degrees. Judas commited a greater sin.
    Not doing good is evil. I dont think
    evil is a thing in and of itself
    This is my view of evil. I could be wrong

    • Man I’d love to debate you on this one as I’ve done almost a thesis level paper on the subject and have studied evil first hand from many different areas of approach. Is evil is as evil does? Or does evil do as evil allures or commands/tempts? Remember there was at one point no evil..but then again if you read Genesis ch1 you do get some interesting setbacks .

    “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou should give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and should destroy them which destroy the earth.

    And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.” (Revelation 11)

    Controlling weather is certainly a miracle to us, like walking on water or ascending in clouds. Christ calmed the storm. Certainly He can do the opposite also. The Trumpet and Seal judgments are part of the righteous Wrath of God.

    I won’t pray for a nation like the USA to be spared the Wrath of God — when they sanction ongoing legalized murder through abortion in the 10’s of millions, and unjust wars abroad as mercenaries for the Saudi Sunni Sheiks, and legalized tax theft through so called stimulus and bail-outs in the trillions…

    I do pray that every wicked work of the damned (including that of satan and the fallen) be exposed and destroyed. Including the enemy’s wrath and raging against Christ and those He saves.

    I’m not the only one that has withdrawn their prayer covering from the US. You know what restrains — PRAYER!

    And you know that the Two Witnesses have the power of imprecatory prayer and authority to cal down the Wrath of God.

    Did you take your chapter of Proverbs today? “He, that being often reproved hardens his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.” (29:1)

    How often has America been lovingly chastised? King David was given a choice of punishments for his own sins….

    What would you choose as a punishment? Slavery? Homelessness? Being a refugee? Sickness? Poverty? War? Quakes? Tsunamis? Supervolcanoes? Boloids?

    • John b said

      I tend to agree with your view, that the shaking is by God’s hand.

      “For great is the wickedness of man upon the earth”

      I also take the view that Tribulation has begun as it cannot be Time-lined to a starting point.
      I believe that the birth pangs brings us into it if Tomorrow a nuclear war was to destroy cities or a plague was to wipe out entire continents.
      Would that be birth pangs or tribulation?

      Jesus said that he would come at the end of the shaking & devestation Mat24:28-31. To me that is the tribulation.

    I am several days behind here, so this morning I was catching up on reading the past blog posts and I read one from Richard that he posted yesterday, about a dream telling of darkness falling on the country. Although I never put a lot of weight on dreams, and take them more as “interesting”, his comment about that dream struck me, because I woke up this morning from a very stressful, yet calming dream. It was a long dream, but in the end of it, the whole scene that I was in turned from a picture in color, to a picture in black and white, and turned a very dark grey. I could see the “wing of the Lord” cover “us” and encompass us in protection. I asked the Lord, in my dream, why had it turned so grey, and He explained that “dark times are coming … but that He would be with us.”
    It was a stressful dream, but I woke up calm and peaceful.

    • Barbara in VA said

      Carolyn: Thank you for sharing that–it gave me chills! I also have thought dreams interesting, but more and more when people tell their dreams, I am paying more attention. I’m thinking that when someone reveals a dream, such as you and Richard, that we should pray for God to reveal the meaning to us. This familiar verse seems to be in evidence at this time: Joel 2:28 (KJV)
      28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

    • carolyn said

      Such a good point, Barbara. We should pray for God to reveal to us the meaning of the dreams we have.

    • One day I’ll post the dreams I had in my late teens about these nightmares that kept happening over a period of two weeks. This being would show up in all my dreams even happy ones and scare the heck outta me then say “The Mars man cometh”.

  10. Sundown Lady said

    Regarding this statement from LA’s above commentary, “We know from 2nd Thessalonians that: He restrains until He is taken out-of-the-way. The question is, who is the “He?””

    According to Kenneth Wuest’s Expanded Translation of the Greek New Testament, “He” is the Holy Spirit. Additionally, Wuest translates the phrase, “except there come a falling away first,” (found in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, KJV), to rather say, “except the aforementioned departure [of the Church to heaven] comes first…”
    (That’s a slightly different way of translating “falling away,” which has usually been understood to mean, the church falling away from being disciples of Jesus.)

    2 Thessalonians 2:3-7 (Wuest’s Expanded Translation Of The Greek New Testament, 1961) “Do not begin to allow anyone to lead you astray in any way, because that day shall not come except the aforementioned departure [of the Church to heaven] comes first and the man of the lawlessness is disclosed [in his true identity], the son of perdition, he who sets himself in opposition to and exalts himself above everyone and everything that is called a god or that is an object of worship, so that he seats himself in the inner sanctuary of God, proclaiming himself to be deity.
    Do you not remember that while I was still with you I kept on telling you these things? And now you know with a positive assurance that which [namely, the departure of the Church, the saints being assembled together to the Lord] is preventing his being disclosed [as to his true identity] in his strategic appointed time, for the mystery of the aforementioned lawlessness is now operating. Only He [the Holy Spirit] who is holding [the lawlessness] down, [will do so] until he goes out from the midst [of humanity].”

    (FYI: not saying it is, not saying it isn’t, just offering it as being one possible point of view.)

    • John b said

      Why does not Apostle Paul say what it is that is the restrainer?

      He could have said Holy Spirit or our prayers or the angel Michael but he did not, and for some reason he chose to refer to the restrainer as he. It may have been his intention to keep the identity secret by not writing it in the letter so as to prevent its knowledge to the civil Roman state.

      It has been suggested that the restrainer was the civil Roman State, upon the ruins of which rose the usurpation power of papal power.

      Consider any one at the time of Paul’s letter saying or suggesting that the Roman state would one day be removed!,
      Paul would have had the knowledge of its removal but only spoke of it to the church and did not write it.

      This infers of course that the man of sin is within the lineage of Papal Rome in agreement with Daniel’s interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the statue having the feet of part Iron & clay upon which comes the kingdom of God by the return of Jesus Christ.

    • BilboBaggins said

      A government could restrain Satan and do so continuously for 2,000 years? Don’t think so.
      And Rome is not a “he”.

    • John b said

      Bilbo; If one holds the belief that the seat of the papacy is to the place of lawlessness where the ‘man of lawlessness’ is to be manifested, then it makes perfect sense and is in conjunction with the ‘mystery of iniquity’ and the ‘Apostasy’ which main doctrine is the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man.

      Furthermore; the fact that most classify that which I have shared as ‘None-futurist’ gives further ground to the ((hidden agenda)) of The mystery of iniquity which will seduce all but A Godly remnant by the instrumentality of The Whore.

      John B

    • Bozz said

      aforementioned departure (harpazo) = falling away i.e. apostasia. Harpazo is explained as the falling away or apostasy; now that right there is the pop view of the harpazo and is a “let no one deceive you by any means” case.

    • John b said

      Bozz; greetings, yes the falling away is from the faith into great deception. One could say it is leaving Christ for Baal without being aware that one is doing so all the whilst claiming some affiliation to Christianity.

      “The faith” is apostolic in context and not an ecumenical smorgasbord of denominations where one is bound by clerical legislative constitutions supported by the mammon of tithing in order to keep the machine running.

      John b

    • BiboBaggins said

      Your anti-church and denomination stance is blinding you and leading you astray. If all christians had your bad attitude and outlook, the kingdom of God would never advance or ever have adavanced. Denominations and organized religion are not perfect and many have gone apostate. But God is still working through the imperfect. Who do you think is spreading the word of God in word and deed? It is the Holy Spirit through hard working missionaries being supported by denominations. Who do you think is making a difference in neighboords poor and affluent alike by exemplifying the fruits of the Holy Spirit? Why it is good men, women and children coming forth from denominational churches to do the will of Jesus Christ. Who is feeding the poor taking care of orphans and widows? Not some grumpy old man nitpicking and deciding for God who is on the in and who is not. You aught to repent. Let not you prejudices pave a way to hell for you.

      I agree with it too. We need to share that with others so they stop blaming God for these things.

  13. dilateurmind said

    I agree with LA, except I don’t like the picture of the “devil” and a representation of Christ having an arm wrestling match. The war has already been won! I think we should pray for this nation to be spared from the wrath of God. God is merciful and long-suffering so that none may perish. I know it’s not an infinite delay, for God is not fooled, what a man sows, a man reaps.

    • Ruggie said

      I was thinking the same thing, I don’t like that picture, it gives me the creeps, and is a very poor representation. I wouldn’t use that picture ! Too me it sends a bad vibe and when I seen it, I was turned off instantly. Just my honest opinion, and thoughts on it.

    • lamarzulli said

      I Agree about the picture with the arm wrestling. The battle was won on the cross. L.A.

    • How about if they were arm wresting and Satan had his hand pinned to the table? That would be more fitting. Not that those two are even in the same league.

  14. Mark1:17 said

    2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 mentions a “restrainer” that is holding back sin and lawlessness. What or who that restraining force is, Paul does not say specifically in this letter. Many have speculated as to the identity of the restrainer, naming the restraining force as 1) human government; 2) gospel preaching; 3) the binding of Satan; 4) the providence of God; 5) the Jewish state; 6) the church; 7) the Holy Spirit; and 8) Michael. Whatever now restrains the Antichrist of vv. 3, 4, 8–10 from being revealed in the fullness of his apostasy and evil must be more than human or even angelic power. The power that holds back Satan from bringing the final apostasy and unveiling of his Satan-possessed false Christ (the Antichrist) must be supernatural. It must be God’s power in operation that holds back Satan, so that the “man of sin,” “the son of destruction” (v. 3) won’t be able to come until God permits it by removing the restraining power. The reason for the restraint was so that the Antichrist would be revealed at God’s appointed time and no sooner, just as was Christ (Gal. 4:4), because God controls Satan.

    The Holy Spirit of God is the only Person with sufficient (supernatural) power to do this restraining. How does He do it? Through Christians, He works in society to hold back the swelling tide of lawless living. At some point, though, He will be removed from the earth, allowing sin to have dominion over mankind. This can only happen when the Church—all true believers in Jesus Christ—is removed. This is because the Holy Spirit lives within each believer. When the church leaves the earth at the rapture, the Holy Spirit will be taken out of the way in the sense that His unique lawlessness-restraining ministry—through God’s people— will be removed (see Genesis 6:3).

    The removal of the Restrainer at the time of the rapture must obviously precede the “day of the Lord.” But as soon as individuals again start placing their faith in Christ during the tribulation, the Holy Spirit will again be “present” in the world. His ministry of restraining, though, seems limited to the time before the tribulation.

    The bill would make it illegal for a security officer to intentionally touch someone’s private areas — even atop clothing — unless they have probable cause to believe the person is carrying something illegal.

    Bill sponsor State Rep. David Simpson says the searches are removing people’s dignity.

    Last fall the Transportation Security Administration started a new pat-down procedure.
    Susie Castillo, crowned Miss USA in 2003, said she was “molested” during a pat-down last April.

    TSA spokesman Nicholas Kimball says the agency doesn’t comment on pending legislation. He says current security measures are the best ways to mitigate the risk of terrorism.

    How many remember last November when 16-year-old Delvonte Tisdale jumped a fence and climbed into the wheel well of a jet at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, while the TSA were busy inside patting down grandma and 6 year olds. If a 16 year old can get on an airplane that easy just by jumping a fence it shows that the TSA is just useless. PS. it was a bad day for Tisdale as he fell out of the wheel well and got ran over by two cars.
    These illgal shake downs happen on a daily basis as the goverment and TSA debate what constitutes as an “un-reasonable search”…. I would think fondling someone’s genitalia would indeed constitute an unreasonable search or am I wrong on that?

    What do bloggers think of this Jesse Ventura video that has been shown on tv and now is on Youtube?

    • Elaine said

      WOW! Thanks Gordy….I can’t afford the package that includes TruTV and didn’t know I could get ‘em on youtube! So I just had a 6 hour Jesse festival! Lost my day….hmmm, but to answer your question:
      My dad would never talk much about his service years but he was stationed in Roswell before the famous crash but he was a genius….seriously, he was! and worked on aircraft engines all through til he got out in 1952 or 3 after going to Sydney and then New Guinea and what he called just an “an island in the pacific”. The one thing I do know is that something during that time made him quit drinking and carousing and turn to Jesus. And one of the things I remember him saying most often was that someday science would prove God and those who had not accepted by faith would tremble at the truth! And I wish I could find it because I can’t remember….didn’t catch my fancy at a young age but he wrote a poem that was titled “Far Beyond Andromeda”……something in that Roswell time did something to him….luckily for me, in a good way. He was a great dad!

    If you keep thinking “judge not, lest ye be judged” and “we are not appointed to wrath” and “we shall see no sorrows” then don’t just stop there with half the truth. Consider the rest:

    “31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.” (1st Corinthians 11)

    “9 And the LORD spake unto Gad, David’s seer, saying, 10 Go and tell David, saying, Thus saith the LORD, I offer thee three things: choose thee one of them, that I may do it unto thee. 11 So Gad came to David, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Choose thee 12 Either three years’ famine; or three months to be destroyed before thy foes, while that the sword of thine enemies overtaketh thee; or else three days the sword of the LORD, even the pestilence, in the land, and the angel of the LORD destroying throughout all the coasts of Israel. Now therefore advise thyself what word I shall bring again to him that sent me. 13 And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let me fall now into the hand of the LORD; for very great are his mercies: but let me not fall into the hand of man.” (1st Chronicles 21)

    “4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. 7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judges her.” (Revelation 18)

    “5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: 6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receives.” (Hebrews 12)

    If we don’t judge ourselves and we don’t come out of Babylon — then instead of chastening like with David — there will be righteous Wrath from God.

    Do you grasp the difference? “God is not mocked, what we sow we reap.”

    If you call yourself “Christian” and “American” and tolerate millions a year in legalized murder through abortion, and unjust wars for drugs and oil and ore as mercenaries for the Muslims, and legalized theft in the form of “stimulus” and “bail-outs” and political pork projects, and rampant divorce among Christians, and wasteful covetousness in the form of massive consumption and obesity, and wage slavery by the millions in poverty level pay to illegals and foreign workers including children in back-breaking and unsafe sweat shops overseas, and whatever other abomination be named… And don’t judge yourself, and don’t listen when it’s time to “come out of Babylon” — then how are you any different than Lot’s wife? Or different than the rest of the world?

    It’s the harlot in bed with the merchants that says, “I shall see no sorrow.” If you think Mystery Babylon is the apostate church, then you should judge for yourself — have you been saying, “I shall see no sorrow…” “We will be raptured away and all this compromise will be excused…”

    “15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. 16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. 17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.” (1st Peter 4)

    Will they preach this in any of your gatherings? Will you consider it and discuss it among yourselves? Will you judge yourself? And what judgment do you choose if you find yourself complicit in the evils of the damned?

    Will your cries and wailing and lamentations be heard — if you don’t?

      Research Tammuz.

      Ezekiel 8:13-15 (King James Version)
      13He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do.
      14Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
      15Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.

      Babylon the great harlot is the antithesis of the bride of Christ.
      She is religious like her master Lucifer, whose desire was to be like the Most High.

      The end-Time deception is a religious saga affecting the whole of Humanity centered on the worship of Lucifer by the majority and the worship of Almighty God by the Godly remnant.

      The line of demarcation is presently being drawn between the Two.
      Jesus will be with us unto the End When He is “revealed in Flaming Fire with Mighty angels” 2Thes1:6,7.

    • The judge not lest ye be judge is the epitomy of every sinful act being brought into the light. its the famous quote all hypocrites throw out. Yet we are told to Judge them by their fruits and be apart from them!

    • nomemoleste said

      However we judge others, we will be judged. We are to love others as we do ourselves.

      Do we coddle and spoil ourselves? Or discipline our own persons as befits soldiers of God?

      How many Christian residences are boot camps and barracks? Have we bought in to the propaganda of covetousness and luxury?

      Just where is our home – the world or heaven? Are we on vacation here – or deployment?

      The world does not want to be judged by military tribunal. They don’t want the duties of a sentry. Nor the penalties for sleeping on duty or failing to watch. The worldly would rather watch videos about the revels of the rich and famous or the delusions of dancing idols….

      Where did Christ call home?

    • John b said

      What we are not to judge is the motive of another. God alone knoweth the heart of a man, however; in the midst of loving my enemy, I recognize the wickedness of his actions and make a righteous judgment. It can be said that his darkness is exposed by the light of God’s Spirit in the believer.

      Wickedness is Sin in action, righteousness is love in action
      The wicked does not think himself wicked.
      Any genuine born again believer knows that to be true as he looks hindsight to the old man prior to knowing God.

      and i agree that we must judge ourselves this is the only way of maintaining a contrite heart before God.

    The Royals and UFOs – Some tantalizing facts behind the hype (Pt. I)

    Antonio Huneeus | Apr 29, 2011

    http://www.openminds.tv/the-royals-and-ufos-pt-i-669/

    A few week ago, an AolNews story about Major George Filer’s prediction that UFOs were expected to be seen at the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton received huge publicity worldwide. As far as I know, no UFO sightings or footage has emerged so far as the British people and a global audience enjoyed the pageantry of the royal wedding earlier today. The AolNews story, which spread like wildfire through the British press and elsewhere, also quoted famous crop circle researcher Colin Andrews about the Queen’s interest in his first book Circular Evidence, Dan Willis, an expert on royal genealogy, and New York ufologist Mike Luckman, who was the first to feed the information on the Royals’ alleged interest in UFOs to AOL writer David Moye.

    I’ve known retired USAF Major and MUFON Eastern Region Director George Filer for many years—he was one of the speakers at our recent International UFO Congress and his weekly electronic Filer’s Files is a great resource for global UFO sightings. However, his prediction of possible sightings at the royal wedding was not based on any solid data. A more interesting revelation in the AOL article which had not been published before was that Filer himself once met Prince Philip, the Queen’s husband and Duke of Edinburgh who by all accounts is the one member in the royal family most interested in UFOs. cont…

    The Bilderbergers

    http://www.jeremiahproject.com/newworldorder/nworder04.html

    Even though many still deny their very existence, the fact is… in 1954 the most powerful men in the world met for the first time under the auspices of the Dutch royal crown and the Rockefeller family in the luxurious Hotel Bilderberg of the small Dutch town of Oosterbeck. For an entire weekend they debated the future of the world. When it was over, they decided to meet once every year to exchange ideas and analyze international affairs.

    They named themselves the Bilderberg Club. Since then, they have gathered yearly in a luxurious hotel somewhere in the world arrogantly plotting the subversion and silent takeover of constitutional governments everywhere. Their goal is a World Government run exclusively by their hand-picked puppets.

    Bilderberg founding member and, for 30 years, a steering committee member, Denis Healey said, “To say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair. Those of us in Bilderberg felt we couldn’t go on forever fighting one another for nothing and killing people and rendering millions homeless. So we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing.” cont…

    Gentleman,

    I hate to tell you that we are all complicit in the abortion industry because it is financed by our taxes. So, are you suggesting that we start refusing to pay them? Are you willing to face the ire of the IRS? Are you willing to put your safety and freedom and the welfare of your families where your mouth is?

    • Rose from Kentucky said

      This should be under Neomoleste’s comment. The WordPress goblins carried it here.

    • nomemoleste said

      I hate it to. Legalized abortion is much more than mere industry, it’s worse than the holocaust of the Nazis, or the purges of the Communists, or genocide in Africa.

      Anyone who’s American is responsible for abortion, (if not complicit since legalization technically negates being complicit under US law). Should true Christians be punished along with the false-christians and the rest? Are the catastrophes and trauma sanctioned by God? Or even sent directly?

      Punishments in the form of military occupation, famine, plague, or being turned over to base rulers (and even baser demons), at least allows opportunity for repentance. Instead, the Almighty could wipe out America altogether like Sodom, just as He could have ended the world and started over as a new Adam in the flesh.

      And certainly our duty is to render unto Caesar his due, which would otherwise that would be theft. If you get money from Caesar, give them back their blood money. Or a coin from a fish’s mouth if you can, (like Jonah from the whale), as a warning. The Good Lord provides a way to escape sin and where all the bodies are that sleep with the fishes.

      “24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? 25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? 26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. 27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first comes up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.” (Mt. 17)

      Christ even paid indirectly what was not due.

      Can an unborn child be responsible for (or pay money for) their own abortion? Compare the tithe regarding Abraham and Melchizedek. “9 And as I may so say, Levi also, who receives tithes, payed tithes in Abraham. 10 For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.” (Hebrews 7)

      Levi wasn’t even conceived, yet is recognized as a person.

      But we would hold that a child is not personally legally responsible till older – even if taxes are taken from their estate. So where does responsibility for True Christian’s end? Are we our brother’s keepers …or neighbor’s? Does it end with the prophet’s warning?

      “20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 21 Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.” (Ezekiel 3)

      Christ of course took responsibility for all of us. We can’t change what we take no responsibility for.

      How many times should we forgive those involved in abrotion? 70×7… How many times should we warn them?

      “5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. 6 For this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor. 8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loves another has fulfilled the law.” (Romans 13)

      Owe nothing but love.

      It’s not loving to stand mute and not warn America that abortion is murder before God. Nor is it loving to patriotically hold up America as an example of Christian righteousness or charity — when it’s more accurate to say that America is a false-christian nation — deserving judgment and damnation.

      Even the trials of Job (who finally quit complaining) were sanctioned by God. Better we suffer for doing right than wrong. Rebellion is like witchcraft. Pay and warn that their tax thefts used for murder and slavery and unjust war – will bring wrath unless they repent. Whatever they plant the will certainly reap with increase.

      Were the prophets and missionaries spared the calamities of those they ministered to? More often they suffered with them – but there is a time and place having warned them to come out. Consider Jonah.

      “A prudent man foresees the evil, and hides himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.” (Proverbs 27:12)

    This is a further note on what I posted above regarding “the restrainer.” (#10) Although this post specifically addresses the subject of the meaning of “falling away.” I noticed on the forum, that NMM posted on the same topic on 4/19/11 under the post subject: Patrick Heron,

    Quoting PH:
    “Imagine you are in the departure lounge of an airport. Then you get into the plane and it takes off. The plane goes in a motion away from the circumference of the earth as it ascends up into the air. This is ‘the departure’. This is the meaning of apostasia. It has nothing to do with people turning away from God.”

    It’s quite a good thread at L.A. Marzulli’s Watchman Forum under – Board index » Other Researchers & Study of End Time Prophecy, sub index, Patrick Heron.

    Just goes to show that as we grow In Christ, as our minds are renewed, our understanding of scripture can and will be challenged.

    • John b said

      I disagree: Apostasia is the falling away from the faith!

      An Apostate is an Antichrist One who has left the Original faith of the Apostles. Some go all the way in denial Of Jesus Himself as referred by Apostle John.

      The passage in 2Thes2 must be understood in its entirety. The end-time Apostasy is in the context of the Mystery of iniquity.

      To say that apostasia is the departure (rapture) is placing something Holy in the time-line of The mystery of iniquity.

      This is another attempt to prove a pre trib rapture by some.

      At what point does speculation become error?
      When it is taught as truth.
