Commentary & Analysis

L. A. Marzulli

RFK assassination witness tells CNN: There was a second shooter

“What has to come out is that there was another shooter to my right,” Rhodes-Hughes said in an exclusive interview with CNN. “The truth has got to be told. No more cover-ups.”

RFK assassination witness tells CNN: There was a second shooter – CNN

RFK was gunned down by another “lone-gunman” – the first being Lee Harvey Oswald –  in Los Angeles, over 40 years ago.  The official version of the story is that a radical Palestinian, Sirhan Sirhan, who disliked Kennedy because of his support of Israel, did the shooting.  His gun held 8 bullets and now after decades a witness, Nina Rhodes-Hughes, who was there that fateful night, claims she heard at least 12 shoots.  She was facing Sirhan when Senator Kennedy was gunned down.  She told her story to the FBI and was never called as a witness at Sirhan’s trial.  This is the way the game is played.  How can this be possible?  How can this crucial witness be somehow ignored and brushed aside?  The answer is simple, in my opinion she wasn’t called because her version of the events would have cast doubt on the lone-gunman theory and thus would have opened the possibility of a conspiracy.  So why after 44 years does this information surface and why was it tucked  away from the attention of the public, in the first place?

Unfortunately most Americans will shrug it off and focus their attention on bigger things like American Idol or the whereabouts of Kim Kardashian.   The press failed in their job as they did not report this woman’s story.  The FBI may have deliberately skewed the Rhodes-Hughes’ story, at least this is what she claims, as when reading what she allegedly said, in regard to the assassination in the official version set forth by the FBI, denies that she said it.

In closing todays post:  When I read this story yesterday, I was deeply troubled by it.  If there was a conspiracy in the RFK assassination, then who was behind it?  Sirhan Sirhan may have been a MK Ultra, mind control victim, as he maintains that he has no recollection of the shooting.  Then there’s the LAPD removal of key evidence in the shooting that somehow was “accidentally” destroyed.  Kind of like JFK’s brain missing.  Cover-up: RFK

We are living in a society where four-year olds are searched and patted down at airports, where over 100,000 of our service men and women are on some kind of drugs to help them cope with fighting a war that has dragged on for 11 years, and counting.   Where a person deemed to be a terrorist can be arrested and held indefinitely without charges being brought.  Where the public is fed bread and circus and distracted with a new “media-clown” on a weekly basis.  What is the solution?  It certainly is not one that man can fix.  The answer is a supernatural one and it is the return of the King.   When He comes back with the armies of heaven those who were responsible will not be able to hide any more.  They will not be able to stand in their lie.   He will set the record straight.  He will bring justice, peace and goodness back to this world.  This is our hope.  This is what keeps me going, the promise of His coming!  In the meantime, this is the way the game is played….

Fukishima Disaster Far From Over!

Robert Alvarez: The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Is Far From Over

Spent reactor fuel, containing roughly 85 times more long-lived radioactivity than released at Chernobyl, still sits in pools vulnerable to earthquakes.

Our News Cycle is about 12 hours long and even that is being pushed back to quicker turn around time as events around the world are reported at the speed of LIVE!   Most of us forget about the 9.0 earthquake in Haiti:  “Hey, I gave money to the Clinton/Bush Haiti relief fund!”  That’s great and I did too, but has the plight of the victims improved in that country?  Did the money actually get into the hands of the people who needed it?  Is most of the funds still tied up in red tape, lingering in Washington?

How about the flooding in the Mid-west last year, or Katrina, or the Gulf Oil Spill?  When Richard Shaw and I visited New Orleans, recently, we found that most of the area had been rebuilt, with the exception of areas in the 9th Ward.   The oil spill however, is still affecting the fishing industry and we got a great interview, that we will use in Watchers 4, about this.  When was the last time you heard anything about that?

Why is it that USA Today’s lead story is about Zimmerman raising 200K for legal defense, followed by the latest contestant who was sent packing on American Idol.  Bread and circus anyone?

The Japanese government obfuscated critical information about the disaster of the Fukishima nuclear plant.  They told the world that the reactors were not compromised and that everything was hunky-doorey.  CNN: “They lied to us” Fukushima Radiation Release Comparable To Chernobyl, 100% Meltdown In 3 Reactors

Not so fast!  Here we are months later and nothing has been done to contain the contaminated pools of water.  What  happens when the unthinkable happens and the area is compromised?  Fukishima is a ticking time bomb, as Michio Kaku, explains in the video linked to above.  The people of Japan deserve better from their government and the nations of the world should recognize that Fukishima poses a threat to the oceans and thus the food chain that could affect all of us.

In closing today’s post:  Fukishima, Haiti, 9.0 earthquakes, the ring of fire, bird and fish deaths, flooding, drought, volcanic activity, strange sounds heard world-wide, famines, and wars and rumors of wars.  Are these the signs of the end times?  Is it really business as usual?  How long can we sustain our way of life before it begins to collapse under the weight of fiscal irresponsibility combined with what in my opinion are unmitigated “natural” disasters?   We watch for the signs because Jesus admonishes us to do so.  We keep an eye on developments to warn others of what may be coming, and in the midst of this proclaim that He is coming again soon.

Acceleration Radio: Professor Judd Burton!

Judd Burton!

BURTON BEYOND       

I can remember when I was just a lad, somewhere around ten years old, being in love with new experiences and ideas.  The springboard for my interests as they are today came in the form of one Dr. George Knight, professor of New Testament at Hardin-Simmons University, and an accomplished field archaeologist.  It just so happened that his brother-in-law, Reverend Wayne Keller, was the pastor at my church.  Our congregation had the great fortune of Dr. Knight’s leadership in a number of seasonal bible studies throughout the year.  To my great delight, he always added tales of his work on archaeological sites in the Near East.  That’s really all it took for me, because I drank it all in, and it became part of me.  I have ever since been an explorer: a direct result of the marriage of faith in Jesus Christ and academic enthusiasm.
I’m 34 years old, and I am married to the greatest woman in the world, my bonny Kelly. I have a BA in History from Hardin-Simmons University. I also have an MA in anthropology from Texas Tech University.  This year I completed my PhD in history at Texas Tech University, focusing my studies on Early Christianity and Greco-Roman religions.  I also study topics such as the survival of mythology, sacred geography, folk religion, and contemporary alternative religious movements.

I grew up in a small town called Merkel, Texas.  I went to school there, learned from such wonderful teachers as Chuck Roach, Lisa Amerine, Alvin O’Dell, and Lisa Walker.  Merkel also afforded me the opportunity to learn how to play the guitar, and yes, be in a rock band, Black Pearl.  The little hamlet of Merkel was a wonderful place to grow up.  The present population is about 2500. Merkel  has an intersting history, full of cultural vibrance, and at one point in time, it even had a college. So if you ever get the chance, visit Merkel.

In my short 34 years I’ve had some interesting adventures. While playing in the marching band at Cisco Junior College, I visited Hawaii. I’ve also done archaeology on both sides of the globe: Texas and Israel. To top it all off, I’ve also been to Jordan, Denmark, and Mexico, and hope to add Ireland, Greece, Egypt, Thailand, Australia, Belize, and Vietnam to that list soon.

A woman mountain biking; Actual size=180 pixels wide

Currently, I am an instructor with Amarillo College, teaching classes in History, Anthropology, and the Humanities.  My last job was working as a historian for the Gowen Research Foundation in Lubbock, Texas.  Work at the office has led to adventure in the field, as I am currently the director of an archaeological survey.  This project is due to information being brought to my attention at work.  I love my work, as it is always providing both challenge and great interest for me.

Teaching and research are very important to me.  In fact, I love teaching, and I cherish my students.  I believe firmly in classical education, and make a strong effort to institute the philosophy of classical education in public education curriculum, as well as in the college classes I teach.

I love a good adventure.  I was born for it.  Fortunately the fields I find myself working in most often afford such opportunity.  I believe in living life to the utmost, and taking advantage of all the chances one has to make life interesting, fulfilling, productive, rewarding, and exciting.

Commentary & Analysis

by

L. A. Marzulli

I decided to post this chapter from The Cosmic Chess Match to further discuss the 9th of Av.  In no way am I date setting or promulgating the view that something will happen on this date.  I am however illustrating that this date has historically been one of calamity from the Jewish people and therefore we should keep an eye on it.   Hope that clears things up!  L.A.

If you would like to avail yourself of THe Cosmic Chess Match go to WWW.lamarzulli.net

Chapter 20: The Ninth of AV!

This chapter is unique because it spans thousands of years in its scope. What we will learn is that the Fallen One has attempted to liquidate, kill off, exterminate, terminate, and bring to an end the race of people known as the Jews.  He has done this on more than one occasion and that is the subject of this chapter.

He has sought the destruction of the Jewish people throughout history and has even attempted it in modern times, as we will soon discover.  He has been relentless in these attempts because he believes that if he can wipe the Jews out, he will win. How?  Because if the Jews don’t exist as a people, a nation, and a tribe, then prophecy will not be fulfilled; if prophecy that the Most High God has stated will happen for whatever reason does not, then the Fallen One has proved the Most High God to be a liar and thus he would win the match, or perhaps I should say rematch because the match was decided on Calvary two thousand years ago: the victor being the Most High God.  Of course this is NOT going to happen, but the Fallen One is so full of hate and, while he is an evil genius, his hubris has clouded his judgment and so he still believes that he can win the rematch, even though there is no rematch being played!

There are those who wonder about the hatred toward the Jews.  We see it today, as we hear from Mahmoud Ahmedinejhad, who continually spreads his vitriolic comments toward Israel on almost a weekly basis.  I have covered this in Politics, Prophecy & the Supernatural, so I will not go into it here, but surely we can agree that anti-Semitism is on the rise.  Here are a handful of quotes that the president of Iran has hurled toward Israel:

“Israel is a dry withered tree, soon to be plucked up by its roots and thrown into the sea.”[1]

“Israel is a cancer soon to be irradiated.”[2]

“Israel should be wiped off the map.”[3]

The point I’m making is that unless we understand that the Fallen One spawns these supernatural forces and, I believe, fans the flames of this hatred, we will never understand it.

In short, we are watching in real-time the end game of the Fallen One being played out on the world stage.  He is trying to drag as many people as he can with him to his final destination, that of the lake of fire.  However, in the meantime, and I believe it is in the near future, he will try once again to annihilate the Jews.

The Supernatural hatred of the Jews

Why the deep hatred of the Jewish people?  Why is anti-Semitism raising its ugly head in the modern era, in the 21st century?  According to the latest statistics, anti-Semitism is on the rise.[4]

It just doesn’t make sense, does it?  The root of the hatred, in my opinion, against the Jewish people is that the Jews are the Most High God’s chosen people, and it is because of this that the Fallen One hates them with a vengeance and wants to wipe them off the face of the earth!

There are some Christians who say that the Jews lost this privilege—that of being the chosen people—when they rejected their Messiah.  This is called replacement theology and, in my opinion, it is a heretical teaching.

In short, replacement theology says that the church is now Israel and all the promises that the Most High God gave to Israel now belong to the church. Unfortunately, this is not stated anywhere  in the Guidebook to the Supernatural.  It is an invention of men and women to once again diminish the Jews and Israel.  (I wonder what fallen angel whispered this falsehood and started the rumor in the first place.)  In my opinion, if one takes this position, then one will never, and I mean never, have an understanding of prophecy and how the cosmic chess match is being played out.  Most of the prophecy that we have seen in our lifetime is directly related to Israel:

The gathering of the Jews from the four corners of the world[5]

The control of Jerusalem[6]

The desert blooming[7]

The language of Hebrew restored[8]

These are a few of the prophecies that have come to pass.  There are others that are yet unfulfilled, but I believe that we are in the days when we will see them happen as the news media flashes the headlines on TV sets all over the globe.

Tisha B’Av – the Ninth of Av

This day, the ninth of Av, has been a day of calamity for the Jewish people.  It would appear that this is no coincidence and, as we shall see, the fingerprints of the Fallen One are all over what has transpired on this day.  Here is a brief overview, taken from the Jewish Virtual Library, of what happened:[9]

Tisha B’Av, the Fast of the Ninth of Av, is a day of mourning to commemorate the many tragedies that have befallen the Jewish people, many of which coincidentally have occurred on the ninth of Av.

Tisha B’Av means “the ninth (day) of Av.” It usually occurs during August.

Tisha B’Av primarily commemorates the destruction of the first and second Temples, both of which were destroyed on the ninth of Av (the first by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.E.; the second by the Romans in 70 C.E.).

Although this holiday is primarily meant to commemorate the destruction of the Temple, it is appropriate to consider on this day the many other tragedies of the Jewish people, many of which occurred on this day, most notably the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492.

Tisha B’Av is the culmination of a three-week period of increasing mourning, beginning with the fast of the 17th of Tammuz, which commemorates the first breach in the walls of Jerusalem, before the First Temple was destroyed. During this three-week period, weddings and other parties are not permitted, and people refrain from cutting their hair. From the first to the ninth of Av, it is customary to refrain from eating meat or drinking wine (except on the Sabbath) and from wearing new clothing.

The restrictions on Tisha B’Av are similar to those on Yom Kippur: to refrain from eating and drinking (even water); washing, bathing, shaving or wearing cosmetics; wearing leather shoes; and engaging in sexual relations. Work in the ordinary sense of the word is also restricted. People who are ill need not fast on this day. Many of the traditional mourning practices are observed: people refrain from smiles, laughter and idle conversation, and sit on low stools.

In synagogue, the book of Lamentations is read and mourning prayers are recited. The ark (cabinet where the Torah is kept) is draped in black.

Here is a list of the calamities that befell the Jewish people on the ninth of Av.[10] These dates are taken from the Mishnah.  I will comment after each one and will use a different font to do so.

The twelve spies Moses sent to observe the land of Canaan returned from their mission.  Only two of the spies, Joshua and Caleb, brought a positive report, while the others spoke disparagingly about the land.  The majority report caused the Children of Israel to cry, panic and despair of ever entering the “Promised Land.”   For this, they were punished.  God said that their generation would not enter the land.  Because of the Israelites’ lack of faith, God decreed that for all generations this date would become one of crying and misfortune for their descendants, the Jewish people.  (See Numbers Ch. 13–14.)

We discussed some of this earlier.  What is being mentioned here is the countermove of the Fallen One?  In short, he has been busy putting Nephilim (the offspring of fallen angels and women) in the area that the Most High God has designated as “the Promised Land.”  As I mentioned before, this is a major macro move because it affects everyone who has come out of Egypt in the Exodus.

The First Temple built by King Solomon and the Kingdom of Judah was destroyed by the Babylonians led by Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BCE and the Judeans were sent into the Babylonian exile.

The Fallen One is seeking to destroy the entire nation.  The first temple is destroyed and the Jews are carted off to Babylon.

The Second Temple built by Ezra and Nehemiah was destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE, scattering the people of Judea and commencing the Jewish exile from the Holy Land.  According to the Talmud in tractate Ta’anit, the destruction of the Second Temple began on the Ninth of Av and the Temple continued to burn throughout the Tenth of Av.

More of the same here as the Romans destroy the focal point of the Jewish nation, the Temple, and then scatter the remaining Jews to the four corners of their empire.

The Romans crushed Bar Kokhba’s revolt and destroyed the city of Betar, killing over 100,000 Jews, in 132 CE.[11]

Following the Roman siege of Jerusalem, Roman commander Turnus Rufus plowed the site of the Temple and the surrounding area, in 133 CE. [12]

This is the final straw for the Romans, and Jews entering what was once Jerusalem did so on pain of death.

There are other events that fall on the ninth of Av of which we should take note.  They are:

The First Crusade was declared by Pope Urban II in 1095, killing 10,000 Jews in its first month and destroying Jewish communities in France and the Rhineland. (See footnote #79.)

Jews were expelled from England in 1290. (See footnote #79.)

Jews were expelled from Spain in 1492. (Seefootnote #80.)

On Tisha B’Av 1914 (August 1, 1914), World War I broke out, causing unprecedented devastation across Europe and set the stage for World War II and the Holocaust. (Seefootnote #80.)

On the eve of Tisha B’Av 1942, the mass deportation began of Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto en route to Treblinka. [13]

The Jewish community center in Buenos Aires was bombed, killing 86 and wounding 300 others, on Monday, July 18, 1994, the 10th of Av. Jewish Calendar 1994.

The Israeli withdrawal from 25 settlements in the Gaza Strip and northern Samaria, considered a calamity by some Jews and Israelis but necessary or positive for Israel by others, began on August 14, 2005, the day after Tisha B’Av. (Forced evacuations of remaining residents began on August 17.)

It is obvious that there is a cosmic connection to this date.  It is not a coincidence that these calamities that befell the Jews happened on or very close to the ninth of Av.  I recently blogged about this date and I have learned to keep an eye on world events every year when we near the time of the ninth of Av.

Commentary & Analysis

by

L. A. Marzulli

There is a gathering storm and when it breaks it may cause a world-wide financial tsunami.  Spain, is now being compared to Greece, which for all practical purposes is on the financial ropes.  This was reflected in our stock market yesterday. Europe’s debt weighs down stocks…Wal-Mart shares plunge on bribery allegation…Sour outlook

The USA is TRILLIONS of dollars in debt and our president continues to spend, spend, spend, hoping to spend our way out of the recession.  It’s not going to work and I’ve addressed this before so I won’t beat a dead horse again, but the BLOG about Johnny’s lemonade stand covered this.  Briefly if Johnny keeps borrowing money to upgrade his stand and never sells any lemonade he’s going to go belly up.  This is how it is at the moment in the USA, we’re spending more than we are making and the guys in the Beltway aren’t changing their tune any time soon as it’s the same old song of bail outs and spending.

Here’s what I see coming, and I hope I’m wrong.  I am expecting to see the war in the Middle East erupt in the next few months.  Specifically around July 28, as this is the 9th of Av, which historically for Israel and the Jews has been calamitous. (I cover this in The Cosmic Chess Match)   This war will be WWIII and may topple the already fragile global economy.  (Note the article: In other News section – about Iran and the Strait of Hormuz)  I believe that we are in a very precarious state of affairs and when this war erupts it will send gas prices soaring, which in turn will affect everything else, especially commodities.

I believe that we are in the birth pains that are mentioned by Jesus in Matthew 24 and elsewhere.  He lists a series of signs that we are to look for.  The question is this, are we living in the time when these signs are being revealed?  My answer to this is yes, we are, and so we should be aware that there are supernatural forces that are at work pushing The Fallen One’s agenda forward, which is to set up a global financial as well as religious system.  This is his end game.

In Closing today’s post:  I know more doom and gloom, and who wants to hear that?  I could blog about something else, but then I wouldn’t be true to what I believe I have been called to do, and that is to be a watchman.  I call it like I see it, and from my perspective what I see is a gradual build up toward a climax – a storm that is gathering and at some point will break.  If you were going for a ride in a boat on a lake and I knew of an approaching storm and said nothing about it, the guilt would be on me.  However if I warned you and you shrugged it off then the guilt is on you.  The Gathering storm will break at some point, and the war in the Middle East will be the start of it.

Commentary & Analysis

by

L. A. Marzulli

While the news of the day heralds the release of George Zimmerman, the clock is ticking.  While the media tells us of yet another alleged, anti-semitic remark from Mel Gibson, the clock is ticking.  While the actions of a few secret service men become national news, and men who allegedly hooked up with prostitutes are publicly eviscerated, the clock is ticking.  While the Fox News web site is informing me of vital information, what Buddy Holly and other “stars” who are deceased would like if they were alive now, the clock is ticking.  How old would they be now? | Fox News  

I think you get the point. Our media is in the business of distraction and obfuscation with a side order of endless bread and circus for everyone, and while they are engaged in that, the clock is ticking.  What clock you ask?  The prophetic time piece of the God who has is not dead, knows the beginning from the end, has not abdicated His throne,  and because he resides outside of time and space as we know it, calls out a priori, with great specificity, events that will happen in the future, His word will come to pass!

What amazes me is that Nostradamus is given his own TV show – he’s only about 60% accurate, and I’m being generous with that number – and the Guidebook to the Supernatural, i.e. The Bible, collects dust and is barely mentioned.  Nostradamus Effect — History.com TV Episodes, Schedule, & Video

More people know more about Nostradamus, the Mayan 2012 end-of-the-world prophecy, and the latest meter readings on Ghost Busters, than they do about Ezekiel 38, Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17.   There are those who do not see any significance with the Jews being gathered back into their ancient homeland of Israel and that position, in my opinion, is a faulty one, as most end-time prophecy deals with the Jewish people.  Jerusalem has become a stumbling block for all the nations, just like prophecy tells us she will be in the last days. The Middle East is set to explode and when it does all eyes will be on Israel, again, like prophecy tells us it will be in these last days.  We see the nascent beginnings of a one world government.  Weather patterns are bizarre – see In Other News for stories –  fish and animal deaths continue, volcanoes threaten a nuclear winter, Fukishima is not a done deal, North Korea is once again threatening to destroy South Korea,  The Ring Of Fire keeps putting out 7.0 and bigger earthquakes, and war and rumors of war are pretty much everywhere. Oh, I forgot to mention the soon to be revealing of the so-called extraterrestrial presence.

In closing todays post:  We are truly in tenuous times,  wrought with uncertainty.  We can immerse ourselves in the news of the day, shop at COSCO on the weekend, and stuff our refrigerators with food and think that, it can’t happen here.  However, the clock is ticking and in my opinion the signs are all around us.  We are in the birth pains that Jesus warned us would precede His return.   The clock is ticking….

Sunday Go To Meeting Bun!

Posted by lamarzulli on April 22, 2012

Sunday Bun

by

L. A. Marzulli

My Personal Testimony: How I became born again and Spirit-filled

 

I was born in 1950 to parents of Italian descent who were Catholic.  As a child I was in awe of what happened at church every Sunday because the priest, who was dressed in robes and was surrounded by lit candles and incense, seemed to my boyhood mind like some special magician between the people, sitting in typical sheep-like fashion, and God.

I didn’t understand anything that was being said because it was all in Latin.  I knelt, stood, tried not to fidget (which was almost impossible in the wool pants that I wore) and when I became older I served briefly, very briefly, as an altar boy.

One of the most traumatic events in my life was the death of my grandfather.  I was only five at the time of his passing, but it was a blow to my spirit and although I didn’t grasp the finality of it as a boy of five, it was life changing.

I remember, right before my grandfather’s untimely death, grabbing his oversized Bible, constructing a make-shift pulpit in front of the long dining room table where my relatives were all eating and, while I couldn’t read a word, giving my first sermon.  I shouted, “What is the truth?”

I recently spoke to my parents about this and they informed me that it was hysterical to all who were gathered at that table long ago.  They said that the more everyone laughed the more insistent, passionate, and serious I became, and this from a five-year-old….

Looking back, it was a foreshadowing of what I do today. But I’m getting ahead of myself!

When we moved from Waltham, Massachusetts, to Berwyn, Pennsylvania, I was 10 years old.  It was a new environment for me and it took some time for me to adjust to the school I found myself in.  It was a Catholic school and for me it was torture.  Like many young boys, I found it almost impossible to sit still and focus on what was being taught.  All I wanted to do was go outdoors and play and run in the woods!  This is the reason why I am still trying to learn the art of punctuation today, because I was totally checked out when this was being taught in the third grade!  Where do I place those pesky commas?

At thirteen I decided to leave the church.   I did so after I went through the confirmation process. This was just unbearable because we had to memorize a gazillion catechism questions.

When the bishop showed up at the church, all of us who had spent weeks memorizing these questions and answers in case we were called were stupefied when the good bishop didn’t ask us one question, not one!    Something in me gave up on the Catholic Church at that point.  In fact, I announced, much to my parents’ dismay, that I didn’t want to go to church anymore.  My mother was aghast; my father took it in stride.  This began the years in which God (whoever I may have thought He was) took a back seat to everything else I deemed important.  He was, for all practical purposes, at the bottom of my list. More truthfully, He didn’t make the list at all.

I went through junior and senior high school and hated most of it.  I didn’t fit in.  Music was my big out and I was the co-leader of the most popular band in the school.  We rocked the house and looked as freaky as possible.  This was the 60s and I was desperately trying to be a hippie with my long, frizzy hair and pimpled face.  Acne really is the bane of young people who endure those teenage years.

I was a nature counselor at the local YMCA during one summer and it was there, at the age of 16, that I met the first girl on whom I really had a crush.  Her name was Michelle and she was only 14!  Before I could take her to the YMCA dance, her father interrogated me—think the real Archie Bunker here!  We were in love, at least as much as immature teenagers can be.  We dated all through my high school years, and then we broke up for some stupid reason that I can’t remember.

It was during this period that the lead guitarist in the band introduced me to marijuana.  The first time I took it I laughed and laughed and thought this was the greatest thing that had ever happened to me.  We moved from smoking pot to LSD and right after graduation, in the summer of 1969, I found myself sitting in the large field with thousands of other stoned- out hippies in what would become the legendary Woodstock concert.

Unlike our former president, I inhaled as often as I could.  Looking back at those days and some 42 years later, I realize that my generation was hoodwinked and lied to.  The Beatles and other bands at the time promulgated the use of drugs.  As many of you who are reading this know, drugs have been the cancer of our society.  When I speak at conferences I sometimes ask the audience to give a show of hands of people who either have been or know people in rehab.  The hands go flying up and to our dishonor it’s most of the audience.  Drugs have changed the moral fabric of this country forever, but I digress.

It was during this time that I was sitting in my room on LSD and reading Michelle’s letters and another girl’s letters, trying to decide whom I should be with.  At the same time I was trying to read the book of Revelation, which was way too taxing for my drug-infested brain!  I was asking (actually more like challenging) that if there was a God, He show me which girl I should be with.  About an hour later (by this time it was around midnight) my father came into my room and announced that Michelle had been killed in a hit-and-run automobile accident.  Remember that at this time I was high on LSD and so my emotions were like Jello in a blender.  I was stunned and I just sat there not being able to move for what seemed like a very long time.  Eventually I went to bed and when I awakened I asked my father if Michelle was dead or did I dream that I heard this.  He informed me that it was true.  This is the one single event that changed my life.  It sent me on a quest that didn’t end until 12 long, weary, years later.

Her death was so final, there were no second chances or do-overs; it was a wakeup call and I was cut to the quick by it.

Michelle’s death started me on a journey to find out the meaning of life.  To discover who God is, or better yet, even if He existed at all.

I began to read everything I could get my hands on.  I read books on the occult, tomes by Carlos Castanada, Blavatsky, Euspensky and others who introduced me to the New Age paradigm.  I continued to experiment with drugs, looking to be enlightened by them.  I went on vision quests and very often when taking psychedelics I had horrible experiences.  I realize now that all of these drugs were gateways into the occult, stepping-stones to the world of the Fallen One and his dark purposes.

What was the purpose of this life?  Why were we here?  What was the meaning of love?  I pondered these and other questions looking for answers but not finding any.

After three years of searching, and now 21 years old, I still had not found what I was looking for.  I heard about a course called Silva Mind Control, which was invented by Jose Silva.  I took a friend along with me and we signed up for the course.  I had no idea what I was getting into, but the flyer that I had looked at promised me that I would have the ability to diagnose and heal those who were sick.  We were told to lie down on the floor and visualize a workroom. Then we were told to create imaginary counselors to help us in this workroom.  My counselors were Jesus, Curly, of the Three Stooges, and the Lone Ranger.  LOL!  I figured that each of them could be trusted.  Much to my amazement they would appear with me in my imaginary workroom.  We have discussed some of what this is in the pages of this book.  I was being indoctrinated into the occult, using meditation and what is known as guided imagery to catapult me into the unseen world of the spirit.

When we graduated we had to perform a test to see whether or not we could function as “seers.”  I was handed a 3 x 5 index card with a name on it, nothing more.  I was then told to diagnose the illness this person had.

I went into my workroom with Jesus, Curly and the Lone Ranger and together we diagnosed what was wrong with the person.  I would use my hands, like a human X-ray machine to scan the person while my eyes were closed.  I “saw” what was wrong and announced it.  “He has a growth on his brain.”

The instructor smiled at me while nodding knowingly and said, “Correct.”

I had passed the test. What wasn’t told was that through the technique of Silva Mind Control I had opened myself to real spirit guides.  (For a more in-depth view of this, you can go to Sharon Beekman’s book, Enticed by the Light).  She vividly portrays what happens when a person opens himself up to these entities.  Please remember also that we are told in the Guidebook to the Supernatural to avoid any contact with these malevolent impostors!

I continued my esoteric studies and now I was reading about the holy men, the mahatmas of India: how they would sit and attain enlightenment.  And how the Fakirs, denunciates of the world, could perform miracles and feats of superhuman strength and endurance.  I was intrigued by what I was reading and began to think about going to India.  It was around this time that someone gave me a poster that stated …the God of the universe had come to earth in the form of a 14-year-old boy named Guru Maharaj Ji.

The 14-year-old guru was going to appear at a theater in Philadelphia.  I found myself sitting with hundreds of other hippies in the crowded, non-air-conditioned theater.  There were no seats left and my friend and I sat on the floor in the aisle.  If I remember correctly there was a band that played and we listened to their music.  Then we waited for what seemed like forever.  Finally the guru showed up.  There was a chair set in the middle of the stage on a dais.  It was more like a throne than a chair.  It was draped with wreaths of flowers.  When the guru came out on the stage, most of the audience fell to their faces voluntarily.  This is called pranam.   It is meant as a sign of respect and submission.  Much to my surprise I found myself stretched out on the floor in this pranam position.  Someone on the stage called out:  Bo-ley shri- Satguru Dev …and most of the audience replied, Maharaj ki ji.  Looking back it now reminds of the mindless Nazi salute and cries of Heil Hitler, although I’m certainly not comparing the guru to Hitler.  At that point everyone settled back in their chairs as the guru began what would be about a two-hour lecture.  It went on and on and on!  The central core of his message was that he was dispensing knowledge.  This knowledge could only be given by him and was unknown to everyone else.  Only through the gurus appointed mahatmas, a holy man, could someone attain the bliss that he promised.  He then went as far as to say that all the other gurus and masters before him were dead and that a person needed a living perfect master to show them the way to peace and enlightenment.  I believed every word of it.  This seemed like what I was looking for and I feverishly scrawled the address of the place where this knowledge was going to be given out the next day.

Secret Knowledge or Deception a Go-Go?

I arrived at the house where the mahatma was going to give those in attendance the secret knowledge early on Saturday morning.  The place was packed with hippies.  We all sat on the floor.  It was a summer’s day and it was hot and we were cramped into this large one room spilling out into the hallway.  The mahatma arrived and the session began.  He talked all morning and most of the afternoon about how this knowledge was special and how the guru was the perfect master.  He told us how important it was to practice this knowledge and then almost at the end of the day, and at this point everyone was exhausted, he began to dispense the secret knowledge. Before I get into what happened, I want to relay to you one incident that made such an impression on me that after almost 40 years I still remember it vividly.

There was a man named Dennis who was trying to get this knowledge along with the rest of us.  He was crippled and deformed and had steel braces on his legs.  The mahatma literally shunned him.  He looked at him with such disdain that it was obvious to everyone in the room.  There was not an ounce of compassion from this so-called enlightened man—who was going to give us the secret knowledge so we could be just like him—and that hit me like a rogue wave breaking at Zuma beach!  It shocked me and, although I wasn’t able to articulate what offended me about the mahatma’s actions then, I can do so now.

In Indian culture they believe in reincarnation.  This is when a person is born over and over again and, depending on his or her actions, comes back in a higher or lower caste.  It also has to do with the so-called laws of Karma.  This is where actions that are deemed good or bad are carried over to the next incarnation and these actions decide where you are in the Indian caste system.  Brahma caste is the highest, while the untouchables are deemed the outcast of Indian society.  Much of this has changed in the last 100 years, but the mindset is still very much alive in India today.

What this mahatma was reacting to with Dennis is that in his worldview, that of believing in reincarnation, Dennis must have committed some grievous offense for him to be crippled like he was in “this lifetime.”  It was a glaring example of where this so-called enlightenment leads and it is one of segregation and working one’s way to a state of perfection by countless reincarnations.  This is a false system and the fruits of it are apparent from the mahatma’s attitude toward Dennis and his unfortunate condition.  There wasn’t any compassion or empathy from the “enlightened one” toward Dennis; there was, in fact, open contempt of him to the point at which some people in the room began to shun Dennis, too.

The mahatma was dressed in a saffron-colored robe and his head was shaved.  He had this “blissed-out” look on his face, meaning that he smiled and appeared holy and enlightened.  Of course he had a retinue of attendants who cared for his every need and whim.

He moved around the room and dispensed the secret knowledge.  I was in a state of heightened awareness at this point and waited expectantly for my turn to come.  The first thing he was going to do was to open our third eye.  This is the spot that is located between the eyes in the center of the forehead.  It is where our pineal gland is located and in many occult initiations opening the third eye is the springboard, or gateway, to the lower astral or what I have come to call in this book, the second heaven.

I sat there waiting my turn and then the mahatma was in front of me.  My eyes were closed and I felt him put his finger on my forehead.  Nothing happened at first and then suddenly I saw a circle that opened up and became a stream of colors and light images.  I just sat there taking it all in and feeling special that I had now obtained the first part of this secret knowledge.  I opened my eyes and looked around and everyone had the same goofy, blessed-out smile on their faces.  We had been initiated and we had seen the light, literally!

Next the mahatma came and placed his fingers in our ears.  When he did, I immediately began to hear flutes and the sound of rushing water.  This really startled me because it was playing in my head.  I opened my eyes and the mahatma laughed at me and told me to close my eyes again.  Then he took my hands and placed my own fingers in my ears.  The music continued for some time and then it slowly faded away.

At this time Dennis called out because the mahatma had passed him by with both the opening of the third eye as well as the music.  He whined and looked and acted like a little boy who was being picked on.  The mahatma grilled him for maybe ten minutes to the point where Dennis was literally groveling in front of the mahatma begging him for the knowledge.  Finally the mahatma reluctantly gave in and dispensed the guru’s knowledge to what I would now call the American untouchable, Dennis.

Next was the nectar.  He showed us how to put our tongues behind the uvula of our mouths and to keep it there until this divine nectar began to flow.  Sure enough I tasted something sweet trickle down into my throat from where my tongue was jammed against my uvula.

The last part of the initiation ceremony was receiving the holy word. We were told that we were to meditate on this word day and night.  That this word was the primordial vibration and that we were to empty our minds and focus on this word….

The mahatma told us what this word was and after receiving it our initiation was complete.  We had received the secret knowledge of inner light, music, nectar and the primordial word.  I/we were on the path to enlightenment, or so we all thought.

In the Ashram

I got home and went to my room feeling elated and went to sleep. When I awoke the next morning I remember feeling whole and good for the first time in my life, because I believed I had finally connected with God.  I immediately sat up and stuck my fingers in my ears to hear more of the “divine music.”  Sure enough after a few moments it began, faintly at first and then louder.

This experience had a profound impact on my life.  I felt that finally, after years of searching, I had found the truth.  I changed my diet and became a vegetarian.  I went to the local ashram and listened to what is called Sat-Sang, which is supposed to be divine discourse on the knowledge that Maharaj Ji was giving to all who asked.  It wasn’t long before I decided to give up worldly things and devote my life to the guru.  I moved into the Philadelphia Ashram and became a full-time devotee of the guru.

Our schedule was this:

We were up at 5 a.m. when we gathered in front of an altar and sang a devotional that is called Arti.  It was the same song over and over again every day and one of the lines was … rights and rituals won’t reach the goal!  However, if that was true then why were we all engaging in the same ritual day after day?  After we sang Arti, we would then have an hour of meditation.  I remember sleeping through most of this because                                                                        I was exhausted from only getting five hours of sleep a night!  However, there were a few times when the light would explode in my third eye.  Please don’t be confused by this, as it is nothing more than an occult practice that has deceived millions of people for thousands of years.  It is nothing short of a demonic light show and is one of deception.

After a vegetarian breakfast we would go to work.  This was my routine day after day.  At one point I joined the orchestra of the guru’s brother and found myself flying to England to play.  For me this was a dream come true.  The orchestra was about 56 pieces with another 10 or so people to manage, provide food, and schedule events.  We played at many of the guru’s appearances.  We were gearing up for an event called Soul-Rush. This was a 10-city tour of the East Coast and Midwestern U.S. to attract people to the 1974 Houston Astrodome event known as the Millennium.

We finished the Soul Rush tour and settled into the long, hot summer days in an old hotel somewhere in Houston, and prepared for the big event.  I thought at the time that this was it: the end of the world as we knew it.  I remember calling my parents and friends and telling them to try to come to Houston.  We were all that brainwashed and believed everything we were told.

The event came and the Astrodome, which holds thousands of people, was hardly filled.  An estimated 10,000 people showed up for the event, a far cry from what Maharaj Ji and the leaders at the top were expecting.

There was a large dais that was set up on the stage. There were chairs on this dais that was probably 40 feet above the floor of the Astrodome and they were for the members of the guru’s family who were referred to as the “holy family.”  The orchestra was seated on the stage directly below the thrones.

The big night came and the “holy” family paraded out, followed lastly by the guru himself, who then perched on the highest throne.  Now I have told you all of this to get to this point.  The crowd began to worship the guru and the other members of the family.  At this point one of my band mates nudged me and told me to look at the family on their thrones.  When I did this I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.  They were there, but they had changed.  They looked different.  There were other entities that night that manifested on that stage and looking back now almost 40 years later, it is my opinion that what I saw was the demonic manifestation that in-dwelt each of these people.

I stayed with the guru for another year and then I left because I was disillusioned, and here’s why: We were rehearsing for the “Big Event in Houston” that turned out to be anything but.  At this point I had practiced meditation and done all that had been required of me, however, there was no peace.  One night I went into the large hall that was used for Sat-Sang and meditation and I lay down prostrate in front of the ever-present chair bedecked with flowers for the guru.  I cried bitterly, my sobs coming in deep uncontrollable heaves.  It awakened other people, as I was told later, but no one came to see what was going on.  Something broke in me that night and I realized that, while I had practiced the knowledge that the guru had given to me, and done so religiously, in my deep inner core, at the soul level of my being, in my spirit, nothing had changed.  I had no terms to articulate this at the time, but it was the beginning of my leaving the phony, blissed-out, mindless state of practicing meditation with the guru.

After the dismal turn out in Houston, the so-called holy family had a rift between them.  This rift continues to the present day and here’s a link that you can go to check it out for yourself.

http://www.prem-rawat-bio.org/disinherit.html

Maharaj Ji is still telling people that they can have peace through his meditation, but take it from me, it’s nothing more than New Age, phony baloney.  There is only one Prince of Peace and it certainly isn’t this guy.

The orchestra moved to Hollywood, California, and we settled in a hotel on Hollywood Boulevard.  We would walk about eight blocks to the rehearsal hall to practice every night.  We were about four guys to a room that was supposed to hold one person.  We had a drag queen living across the hall, drugs were openly sold and used on the premises, homosexuality was practiced by so-called celibate followers in the orchestra, and, on top of all this, we were supposed to meditate and attain enlightenment.  What a crock!

One amazing moment came when I borrowed a motorcycle and got on the Interstate 10 Freeway knowing that it would lead me to the Pacific Ocean.  As I drove through the McClure tunnel I could smell the sea air, and as I came out of the tunnel and into the light, the blue expanse of the ocean sparkled in the midday sun!

I have never forgotten that moment, because it was like I had found my home at last—California.

Okay, I could go on and on with this, but I’m going to cut to the chase.

The orchestra moved out to a place called Camp Joan Myer, a camp for the blind, located at the northern part of the city of Malibu.  It is set on a hill overlooking the ocean.  It was there that I really began to question the guru and the meditation.  I was with another member of the orchestra and we were both having difficulty believing the so-called party line.  He stated that if you were told you were a god from the time you were a baby, what would you believe?  I nodded and a few months later I left.  However, while I was there we had a mahatma of great importance visit us.  I watched this man perform occult, demonic “miracles.”  Here’s what I mean:

We were walking on the beach with this mahatma and he spoke very little or no English.  It appeared that he wanted to go into the ocean.  He then began to undress and I heard in my head, hold these.  I didn’t believe what was happening.  The mahatma looked at me and shoved his clothes into my arms.  I was stunned.  We watched the “holy man” go into the water and submerge himself under a wave.  When he came out, he put on his clothes and began to walk with us.  Now the next part is very strange, but I know what I saw and I’m not making this up.  As we were walking, the mahatma was suddenly gone.  He was 50 yards farther down the beach.  The other people whot I was with were shocked, too!  This man clearly demonstrated occult power by using mental telepathy and bi-locating.  He had power, but as you have read throughout the pages in the book, I believe that that power was demonic in nature and was given to him by a diabolical source.

The orchestra relocated to another residence in Malibu, downsized its numbers, and when it appeared that nothing more was going to come of it, the leaders decided to move into the city.  This is when I jumped ship and left the guru.  The northern part of Malibu in 1974 was quiet and serene with large amounts of vacant land.  To my 24-year-old brain, I had found paradise.

Now what is pertinent to this testimony is that in a six-year span from 1974 to 1980 I still meditated, sought after the occult, read about the New Age, and in 1976 found the book by Edward “Billy” Meir, UFO Contact from the Pleiades.  This book was pivotal for me as it re-introduced me to the UFO phenomena.   I began to believe that UFOs had seeded us here, that they were the gods of antiquity, and that they were going to come back for us!

I had seen a UFO when I was at Boy Scout camp around 1962.  I left this part out in the telling of my testimony because I think it fits better here. Here’s what happened.

My UFO Sighting

I was 12 years old and in love with Boy Scouts.  I was at Camp Horse Shoe, which is located in Rising Sun, Maryland.  I was with three other boys and we were taking a shortcut back to our camp so we wouldn’t miss lunch. The lead boy, who knew the shortcut, led us up this boulder-covered ravine. We were making our way up this ravine when the boy who was in front yelled, “Wow, what’s that?”

The other two boys chimed in, “Yea, what is that?”

“What are you guys looking at?” I asked.

“There, in the sky,” they answered, and all three boys pointed up toward the sky.

I looked and to my astonishment, there, standing out against the cloudless blue mantel, was a silver disc.  It was metallic and made no noise. It hovered motionless for maybe 20 seconds and then suddenly shot straight up into the sky.  In a blink of an eye it was gone.  We started shouting and ran as fast as we could back to the camp.  When we got there we cried, “We saw a UFO! We saw a UFO!”

The ridicule from the scoutmaster and other boys began almost immediately.  By sundown that night the three other boys denied that they had ever seen anything.  I held tenaciously onto my story.  I was made fun of the rest of the weekend but refused to change my story or deny what I had seen.  It was my first real-life example of what I would call, “herd mentality.”

Vision Quests

As I mentioned earlier, I read everything by Carlos Castaneda who was an anthropologist and wrote about his involvement with the spirit world using mescaline and marijuana as a spring board into the dimension where these beings resided.  I was hitchhiking one day and was picked up by a guy who, like me, was a hippie.  He had a joint going and offered me some.  I eagerly took it and inhaled as deeply as I could, holding the smoke in my lungs while feeling the drug explode in my head.  Even writing this I have to pray against the feeling.  (You couldn’t pay me enough money to get stoned again, because I believe it is a gateway to the second heaven!)

I got dropped off at the bottom of Encinal Canyon, which is right off Pacific Coast Highway, and started walking up the canyon.  The sun was beginning to set and at this point I was really wasted.  I found a little pathway that led off the road and followed it.  It took me to a little clearing that overlooked the expanse of the Pacific Ocean.  I sat down and began to meditate.

I sat cross-legged and felt at one with the universe!  (LOL)  The thought exploded in my mind that everything was connected, everything was one, there was no separation, and that if everything in the universe was connected and one, then there was nothing to fear.  I pondered this for a while and it made sense to me.  I felt like I had just been given one of the secrets of the universe.  Then, I suddenly heard a rattle sound coming from directly in front of me about 20 feet away.  I opened my eyes and was startled and wondered what could be making that noise.  I knew that rattlesnakes were common in these hills, but this was no rattlesnake.  Then I heard the noise again, this time coming from the right of me, still out about 20 feet away.  I thought, maybe someone was playing a trick on me, but I realized that there was no one out here, I was alone, and, besides, how could a person move noiselessly through the chaparral without me hearing them?  I was getting sacred and wondered what was going on.  Then I heard the noise, except this time it was directly behind me.  Then, again in front, except this time it was closer.  The noise grew louder and louder as it continued to circle me.  I suddenly became very afraid and my mind raced back to the Carlos Castaneda books that talked of encounters with spirit beings similar to the one I was encountering now.  Whatever it was circled again growing closer with each pass that it made.  Then it was right in front of me.  Now remember that at this point I was still sitting cross-legged on the ground.  Something came at me and gently pushed me backward and held me there.  If you were in the “lotus” position this is impossible to do as the weight of your upper body would tilt you, and you would fall over backward.  This was not the case though.  This demonic spirit, I call it that because that is what it was, held me there for a while and then slowly let me up.  Once it did, I jumped to my feet and started slamming my open palm against my thigh.  This was a technique that I had read about from Castaneda who used it when a spirit that he did not want to deal with would come to him.  This action would apparently repel the spirit.  Once I had done this, another thought came into my mind and it said that if I had opened myself up to the spirit it would have been able to take me out of my body and shown me the secrets of the universe.

I know, some of you are reading this and thinking, where can I get some of this stuff?  Don’t be swayed by the lie that I was told, because that is what it is.  Let’s walk through this for a moment and examine the two messages I received.  The first one told me that I was connected to everything else in the universe, that we were all one, and that there was nothing to fear.

This is called Pantheism.  Briefly stated it is the belief that we are all one.  It is not true because you and your pet dog or cat are not connected!  You may love your pet, but you are not your pet and your pet is not you.  This philosophy is the basis of Hinduism and I believe that it is a lie.  We are not all one…period!

The next lie was that if I had trusted the spirit I would have been taken out of my body and shown the secrets of the universe.  They can actually do this; however, the price we pay by giving permission to do this is that this familiar spirit, who is a demon, now has the right to possess us!

After the (demonic) spirit left me I slowly got up and made my way back home, unnerved and changed by the experience.  Drugs are a springboard into the lower astral or the second heaven and should be avoided at all costs because we can pick up unwanted entities who will not readily leave us when we later realize who they are.  This kind of experience can lead to possession.  I was lucky because this did not happen to me.

Chasing the Rock and Roll Carrot

During this time I was performing with a band all over Los Angeles. We were chasing the ever illusive, rock-and-roll carrot.  We came close several times but never managed to snag the record deal.  I was nearing 30 years of age and my dream seemed like it was never going to happen.  I had spent the previous five years of my life doing carpentry to stay alive by day and rehearsing, recording, and playing gigs around town at night.  In short, it was a life that was going nowhere.

In 1978 I partnered with a friend and we built a “spec house” in Malibu Lake.  I had sunk every dollar and all my energy into the project.  We were hoping to turn it over quickly and build another.  It seemed like a good way to make a living and we were both good at it.  Just as we were trying to sell the house the market collapsed and interest rates soared to 20%.  The house sat on the market for two years and I lost everything that I had invested in it by the time my partner agreed to buy it for much less than we had listed it.

I had also become somewhat of an agnostic.  I had it up to my eyeballs with trying to find God and enlightenment.  My philosophy was eat, drink, and be merry because we’re just going to reincarnate anyway so who cares!  Someone gave me some books by Taylor Caldwell and I read them. These were novels that depicted the lives of the apostles.  I found them fascinating.  Then my girlfriend at the time gave me a book by David Hunt entitled The Cult Explosion.  As I read through it I realized that I had participated in many of the cults that Hunt was trying to warn about in his book.  At the end of his books was a little prayer that you could say if you wanted to ask Jesus into your life.  At this point my spec house was still on the market.  I was in debt up to my eyeballs.  I was living with a girl and we weren’t married and I was spiritually bankrupt as well!

I remember thinking to myself, I wonder if it’s real?

I repeated the little prayer asking Jesus into my heart and asked Him to come into my life and change it.  I looked around and waited but nothing happened.  I shrugged it off and went about my life.

About a month later I awaked from a very vivid dream and I wept in the arms of my girlfriend.  Something had broken deep inside and although I didn’t know it at the time, Yashua/Jesus was beginning to do a work on me.

I was at a dinner party and a friend asked me if I believed in Jesus.  It was an out-of-the-blue question.  Much to the amazement of my girlfriend, I replied that I believed in Jesus and also considered myself a Christian.

There was a moment in time that I shall never forget.  It was when the Most High God took me out of the kingdom of darkness.  My girlfriend set dinner in front of me and then something broke.  I thought I was losing my mind.  I was being bombarded by thoughts that weren’t mine (unwanted thoughts).   It was terrifying.  I didn’t know what was happening to me, but the thoughts kept coming and they were horrible!

We went to bed and I had a very difficult time trying to get to sleep. My girlfriend had called a friend of hers at work and she was given the name of a pastor who I was to call for help.  The next morning I awakened and I called the number.  I thought I was having a nervous breakdown.  We set up an appointment for later that day.

I also received a call from a man who would become my mentor for the next two years.  His name was Wayne Kendall, to whom this book is dedicated, and he told me that I wasn’t going nuts.  While this was comforting to hear, it didn’t stop the unwanted thoughts!

Later that day I met the man who would counsel me for the next three years on a weekly basis.  In the beginning we met two times a week and then it went to one time a week and finally to once a month.  Pastor Fred eventually married Peggy, my wife of now 26 years, and me.  But I’m getting ahead of myself again.

I then met Wayne and we became good friends.  Wayne was 20 years my senior and we worked together in construction day after day.

I want to let you know that this was like being in spiritual boot camp.  I ate, breathed, and immersed myself in the Bible.  I worked all day and went to any and all Bible studies, home groups and church services that I could find.

I returned home one day only to find that my girlfriend had moved out and taken everything with her, including her bed.  I slept that night on the floor.

Night was a very difficult time for me and I slept with a Bible clutched to my chest.  It was my spiritual teddy bear.  Upon awakening I would read the Psalms and Proverbs and get on my knees and pray for peace.  This went on week after week.  Unfortunately, Pastor Fred and Wayne knew little about deliverance or putting on the armor of God as we are told to do every day in Ephesians 6.  I was also never told about the authority I have in Christ!

(As I write this I want you to know that there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t put on the armor and get ready for battle!)

One night as I put my head on my pillow I heard a roar as something tried to enter my body.  I cried out, “Jesus help me!”  The attack stopped and I lay there for a few minutes paralyzed by what had happened.  I called Pastor Fred and we prayed on the phone and afterward I went to sleep.

I was under attack constantly for years; meanwhile, the Lord was busy re-wiring me, as Wayne liked to call it.  There were days that I honestly don’t know how I ever would have gotten through them without Wayne and Pastor Fred’s help.  Thanks guys.

Remember that I had been willingly involved in the occult since 16 and had been meditating and doing other occult practices for 14 years.  I had been firmly entrenched in the camp of the Fallen One without knowing it.  How’s that for deception?  You see how subtle it is?  The entire time I was in the New Age, I thought I was on the right path toward spirituality and enlightenment; instead, I had opened myself to what the Guidebook to the Supernatural calls the doctrine of demons.

There was a point where I was exhausted, fed up with the more than two years of attacks.  Wayne and I were going into the market to get something for lunch and I remember asking, “How long do you think this is going to go on?”

I had asked that question of Pastor Fred, too, and he had replied that he had never seen anyone struggle as much as I had, but he assured me that God knew what He was doing and at some point the struggle would end.  (Think the book of Job here because it is similar in that the Fallen One was allowed to attack Job for a period of time, but then the Most High God stopped the attack and restored Job.)

I was in the market, feeling overwhelmed with the thousands of brightly packaged products, the lights, and the bustling shoppers, in short, everything.  I put my stuff on the conveyor belt and waited anxiously in line.  The conveyor belt moved, and suddenly from underneath the cash register where it reappears, I spotted a piece of paper.  I realized that it was tract.  I picked it up and opened it.  How it got there, I have no idea.  In most cases the cashier would have spotted something like that and disposed of it, but not this time.  I was next in line, and holding onto the tract, I paid and left the store.  I got back to Wayne’s car and began to read it out loud.  It was my first spiritual warfare lesson and it was the day that I began to get free once and for all from the harassment of the enemy.

The tract said that when we are hit with a thought—just like the ones I was having—we were to say, I am dead to you and you are dead to me!  I am a new creature in Christ, old things have passed away!  I am dead to you and you are dead to me!

The biggest weapon that I was handed that day was this life-changing phrase that was included in the tract.  It was, The Blood of Jesus!

The tract told about the blood of Jesus and why the demons flee at hearing it!  It spoke of the cross and the battered body that bled for all humanity and by that blood, once, for all mankind, paid the price for the sins of the world.  The Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world!

I began to say, The Blood of Jesus, when the attacks would come and I began to get the victory.  That was almost 28 years ago and I still say The Blood of Jesus on an ongoing basis.  It is our BIG cannon, or the mightiest arrow in our quiver to fight the enemy!  Remember he goes about as a roaring lion—I heard that roar—and seeks to rob, kill, and destroy.

I got the victory because of the Blood of Jesus.  I am a new creature in Him because of what He did on Calvary.  His blood covers me/us and it is what makes the Fallen One and his minions tremble in fear, because they know that on that day, when Yashua’s blood was shed, it spelled their defeat and certain doom.

 

In closing this “testimony”

This was not my idea to write this, and it is the first time that I have endeavored to do so.  I felt, or should I say, I was instructed to include it in this book so people could understand and grasp where I was coming from, what I had endured before I was a Christian and also after I became born again.  Mine has been a road traveled that I would not wish on anyone.  Those first three years of my Christianity were the most difficult years of my life.  I wouldn’t wish them on my worst enemy.  Yet, He was with me even in the valley of death, literally!  Everything that I am today is because of Him.  If there is anything good in me, anything worthy of praise, anything that I might be remembered for, it will point to Him who is the savior and keeper of my soul and spirit!

We are Moving!

Posted by lamarzulli on April 20, 2012

As a lad of 25 I built a guest house for the previous owner of the property that I have resided at since 1978.  When I was  “dismissed” from my pastoral job at a church – they censored Politics, Prophecy & the Supernatural – Wifey and I moved back into the guest house and hunkered down.  Now 3.5 years later we are moving back to the promised land!  It’s been a longs 3.5 years.  That being said, there is no BLOG today as our lives are in a controlled chaos!

Acceleration Radio! John Boylan: Hidden Messages in the Torah!

Posted by lamarzulli on April 19, 2012

 

ACCELERATION RADIO – Live Thursday Night! 

lamarzulli | Liberty Broadcasting Network

I am pleased to announce that I will be back on the radio with Acceleration Radio a week from today, Thursday – 7 to 9 pm (CST)  We have had a steady stream of emails asking when the show would return and now, thanks to CJ and the staff at LBN, we are proud to be part of their line up. Liberty Broadcasting Network

John Boylan:

“Again, God Speaks” focuses on the shocking and hidden secrets which God Himself embedded into the simple story of the creation of AdamGenesis 2:7-9.

One look at the cover of the book says it all.  God Himself inserted – right into the text itself – the teaching that there is an anointed Messiah and His Name is Yeshua (which is the Hebrew spelling for the Name Jesus). And, He did this at the dawn of the creation itself! Why – Why did He Do this?
