Video: Republican Mitt Romney lambastes 2-state solution

Video: Republican Mitt … JPost – 2012: The US Presidential race

US Republican presidential candidate filmed at fundraising dinner saying Palestinians “have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace,” adding Iran would use nuclear capability to blackmail US.

This is another older blog which I am re-posting here as there’s no point in reinventing the wheel.  President-to-hopefully-be Mitt Romney (Oops! I guess I tipped my hand as to who I’m voting for!) states what has been the elephant in the room for decades, the Palestinians do not want peace.  Jordan is Palestine and as you read this re-post it may become obvious the whole Palestinian issue can easily be solved, but here’s the catch. The so-called Palestinians do not want a solution they want all of Israel!  Read on!

The picture on the left is none other than King Abdullah II, of Jordan.  He is a Hashemite King.  Hashem was the uncle of the prophet Mohammed, so the king, who is a direct descendent, holds great sway among both Sunni & Shia Moslems.  The King is in a unique position to solve the Palestinian problem that has plagued the region for decades, but before I tell you why, first travel with me a few decades back into time to 1970 and hear what Dr. Kadri Tonkan, the former Jordanian foreign minister has to say, “Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan!”

Then we have a statement by Anwar Nusseibi, a former Jordanian defense minister who stated on October 3, 1970, “The Jordanians are also Palestine. This is also one state. This is also one people. The name is not important.  The families lining in Salt, Irbid, and Karak maintain nt only family and matrimonial ties with the families in Nablos and Hebron, that are one people.” (Both quotes from The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorists – Chuck Morse – pg 137)

There are other statements that I could quote here, bolstering my point, but I think I’ve established that Jordan is Palestine.  What the issue is really about, with HAMAS, FATAH and the Palestinians in general,  is the existence of Israel’s right to exist at all.  (Please take note of the Palestinian logo on the left and observe that all of what today is Israel does NOT exists! )

If we go back to the Guidebook of the Supernatural i.e. the Bible we see the “divine” land grant given to Abraham, by the God of both the Jew and the Christian?  This begs the question, especially to those who are in the replacement theological camp, when and how was this decree abrogated by the Most High God?  The answer, is never!  We see plainly from scripture – Ezekiel 37 –  that in that latter days the Jews will be gathered from the four corners of the earth and established in the land given to them by God, thousands of years ago.  I hold to this position and in my opinion there is no other stance that makes any sense out of the prophetic scriptures that decree this!

When Iraq was trying to come up with a constitution after the crazed despot Saddam Hussein was deposed, King Abdullah offered to set up a constitutional monarchy.  He offer was flatly refused. However, now with the uncertainty that the Arab spring has brought to the region, both the King and the Iraqi’s may take another look at his proposal.  If, and I realize it is a big if, the king were to allow Jordan to officially become the Palestinian state then he would solve the conundrum that has plagued the region since May 14, 1948.  He would be heralded as the man of the century and would be considered the greatest peace-maker that the world has ever known.  Please remember that the guide-book tells us that the A.C. rides to power by making peace for 3.5 years.

In closing today’s post:  Obama sided with the Israeli’s, in what I believe is an unprecedented turn of events.  It would appear that the Palestinian bid for an independent nation will not pass the United Nations security council, as it will be voted down.  This will further fuel the flames of the Arab spring and we may see an all out war in the region.  However, there is an alternative, which would be a game changer and that is King Abdullah giving Jordan to the Palestinians to create their sovereign nation and in turn for this, become the King of Iraq.  I’m a Biblical literalist and Babylon lies in Iraq.  Would the King then set up a new kingdom in Babylon, restoring the ancient city with Iraqi petro dollars? (Jordan has no oil so this could be the lure that sets things in motion for the King!) Could this city then become a world center, all due to the fact that the peace-maker King Abdullah is now regarded as one of the greatest statesmen in history?  Lot’s to consider and ruminate on here.  I hold to these things lightly but continue to watch and wonder if this scenario might be how the Middle East problem is solved!

 Be still and know that I Am God.  Behold the days are coming when I will show my strength on the mountains of Israel

    Mr. Marzulli,

    Frankly, I’m disappointed that you would voice any measure of support for Mitt Romney. When the man travels to Israel and proclaims their right to exist, their sovereignty, etc., he’s lying through his teeth–Mormon theology states that the Israelites long ago migrated to North America and became Native Americans. Any Mormon would have you believe that the people living in Israel aren’t Jews at all! Further, Mormonism states that the new Jerusalem will be established in America. This is in direct contradiction to the Bible, which states that Jesus Christ will rule the nations from Jerusalem in ISRAEL. Are you seriously going to publicly voice support for a member of a mystery religion who is lying just to get the vote? Why would a billionaire want to run for president, anyway? I challenge you to reconsider your decision to vote for this man. I am already seeing a large number of Christians being deceived about him. He is NOT a Christian, and he does NOT worship the same God that we do.

    • JLL said

      The alternative is another four years of Obama: a continued decrease in support for Israel, completing the breakneck destruction of the American economy that accelerated in 2008, pandering to Muslims in America and out, finishing the elimination of our First Amendment rights of free speech and freedom of religion … the list is unfortunately almost endless.

      Apparently you prefer the above to a competent President with more traditional American political beliefs?

      I’m not ignoring Romney’s Mormonism. I’ve been well aware — since I was in grade school, as a matter of fact: can you say the same? — that Mormons are not Christians. But Romney is the best chance on the ballot to save the Constitution and the nation.

      Meanwhile I trust you’re fervently praying for Obama’s conversion … as well as Romney’s.

    • Eric W. said

      ” But Romney is the best chance on the ballot to save the Constitution and the nation.”

      That’s not much of a chance. Another Bush style RINO isn’t going to get the job done.

      Frankly, Im shocked you would consider Barry. He is NOT a Christian, and he does NOT worship the same God that we do…..Touché ;)

    • blic said

      actually that announcement is a sort of “i am no longer interested in being the president” statement. he is paving the way for obama.

  2. Jake Franklin said

    And as far as Babylon is concerned, the Bible does refer to the physical Babylon in Iraq, but the book of Revelation refers exclusively to MYSTERY Babylon. This is the Roman Catholic church. Revelation 17:6 KJV

    “And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with. great admiration.”

    Babylon in Iraq is not guilty of the killing of Christians, but the Roman Catholic church certainly is.

    • john B said

      With this I agree; more so than the Catholic church This mystery harlot is no stranger to God’s people of every age.. They had to overcome her enticing wiles and resist her from age to age for the right to worship the living God..
      She is that woman, that spiritual City which has ruled over the kings, governments and souls of men upon the earth through the passage of time..The saints, the prophets of the OT fought and resisted her Religious harlotry, “abominations, and filthiness of her fornication”Rev17:4 “Her lust for the souls of men” Rev18:13 cost multitudes their lives as they held faithful to the Lord.. She pursued their Blood that such in time she became “Drunk with the blood of the saints and martyrs of Jesus”Rev17:6 In fact she is responsible for the blood of all that were slain Rev18:24.All of this she is and she has done by the instrumentality of prideful Men “Clerical authorities” which she manipulated and still manipulates to persecute those
      bearing the marks of Christ!

    You have stated this possible scenario several times and each time it becomes more and more plausible….Abdullah certainly has all the ducks waiting to line up. I do not like Obama as president but I really do not think he has the brains or ca-hones to be the big baddie although I do think that the Jews who will not come around in the end are probably registered as democrats :-/…..so, although I don’t believe we can trust our gov’t. any more, no matter who wins….Romney is at least standing with Israel and will get my vote!

    • Eric W. said

      “Romney is at least standing with Israel and will get my vote!”

      Mission accomplished.

      ^^
      This is why he made the speech. To get votes like yours. I don’t mean that as an insult against your or anyone but make no mistake. The speech was made for that express purpose and none else.

      Track records and actions, folks, not pretty speeches and rhetoric.

    • Debra said

      One thing I’ve always followed as far has voting goes: NEVER pay attention to the candidates campaign platform. Instead ALWAYS research their political voting records! All politicos are known to flip-flop… depending on which way the popularity poll winds are blowing. ((and who is “greasing their palms”….))
      Politics will corrupt a Christ-following politician far sooner than that politician will ever have a chance to make major legal [moral] impacts while in office. Politics is a nasty business. Sad but true.
      Best we can do is vote our conscience.

    • Eric W. said

      Right on Debra. :)

  4. Eric W. said

    L.A. knows I got love for him so I hope he knows the flavor I bring at all times here. :)

    This is a rare occasion but I have to respectfully disagree with L.A. here on an item. :shock:

    When do we suddenly believe speeches from slick politicians who have flip flopped so many times it’s past laughable? R or D, I don’t care.

    I know most of it is driven by a “get rid of Obama at any all costs” with the blinders on sentiment which I share and agree with but it’s reckless folly on in its own without discernment. (Not saying anyone is lacking!)

    It’s a good speech. And I don’t care.

    I don’t believe a word of it because Romney is a slick car salesman. I’m not sure he has a sincere bone in his body myself. I don’t believe him any more than I believe Obama when it all washes out. Why should I?

    Long/short: Rob Skiba’s column in the September newsletter about the elections is roughly approximate of where I’m coming from here.

    People still believe this is a two party system and we can take any of these Establishment people that check in with the Bilderbergers a few months at their word? Why? Based on what?

    How do we post borderline conspiracy theories about 9-11 here last week…many question and doubts of which I share, don’t get me wrong…but all of a sudden we’re back to believing the two party illusion and pretty rhetoric from prop politicians in a rigged system?

    I can’t do it. I can’t kid myself any more.

    In the 80s Romney would be that slightly left of center Democrat running against Reagan and losing by a decent margin with Jesse Jack*$$ bringing up the distant Democrat rear. That’s all there is to it.

    At BEST, Romney is clearly another George W. Bush style neocon RINO…he’s saying that stuff about not favoring Two State to get votes. It’s that simple. Get past rhetoric and speeches and look at voting records and history.

    “http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/s720x720/215527_10150984914671260_2047748184_n.jpg”

    ^^ That is the voting record of most Rs and virtually all D’s just since 9-11. I’m supposed to get excited and endorse more of the same?

    To me that’s a treasonous, anti-American voting record and most of the government is guilty of it. Rs and Ds alike. I can’t support it with a straight face.

    How’s Romney’s socialized medicine in Mass. he set up back in 2007 working out?

    A brief point on Mormonism. It’s not Christianity. I hope everyone knows that and agrees on that.

    “http://www.withoneaccord.org/assets/images/freedownloads/Mitt.pdf”

    This was written during the 07 primaries so keep that in mind. The information is valid.

    Catholics and Mormons are HUGE Replacement Theology proponents so anyone really thinking they with a big NWO flag around their shoulders are going to be these great friend to Israel is simply kidding themselves with all due respect.

    Bush Sr. in between WCW style NWO promos left and right kicked the hard Two State Solution ball off the ground and it’s not coming back home. Ever. Guaranteed.

    NWO = Two State Solution. Change the window dressing? It doesn’t matter. The world hates Israel and the Ezekiel 38 makes it VERY clear ALL nations WILL be against Israel eventually. NO exceptions.

    If Romney wins, I’ll make anyone here a gentleman’s bet right now that it’s full steam ahead Two State in 1st quarter 2013. Why? Because the NWO said so, that’s why.

    If Obama loses I can assure you he’s not going away as far as global politics is concerned.

    Nothing significant is going to change except the window dressing.

    My gentleman’s bet is on the record and on the table. :)

    • Eric W. said

      “President-to-hopefully-be Mitt Romney (Oops! I guess I tipped my hand as to who I’m voting for!) ”

      None of the above for me.

      I’ll take Ron Paul on fiscal, don’t agree with everything on foreign…probably do a write in or leave it blank because the mass easy fraud guarantees my vote doesn’t count anyways here in Ohio regardless of anything else.

    • I agree that Romney is not a good candidate, but I have decided to probably vote for him as less of two evils.

      Concerning the immutability of the covenant of God with Israel, I too am a literalist, L.A., and I believe Jews who trusted in the coming Messiah, from the time of Jesus until now, will be saved from out of their graves. He promised. He will deliver. They were blinded as to Who their Messiah is, but they still believed He would come, and to them He will come.

    • Eric W. said

      Mariel look further down the blog page at the list of actions in Romney’s career along with the two links in my initial post and tell me what you think of all that. :)

    • 1Sa 12:6 ¶ And Samuel said unto the people, [It is] the LORD that advanced Moses and Aaron, and that brought your fathers up out of the land of Egypt.

      1Sa 12:7 Now therefore stand still, that I may reason with you before the LORD of all the righteous acts of the LORD, which he did to you and to your fathers.

      1Sa 12:8 When Jacob was come into Egypt, and your fathers cried unto the LORD, then the LORD sent Moses and Aaron, which brought forth your fathers out of Egypt, and made them dwell in this place.

      1Sa 12:9 And when they forgat the LORD their God, he sold them into the hand of Sisera, captain of the host of Hazor, and into the hand of the Philistines, and into the hand of the king of Moab, and they fought against them.

      1Sa 12:10 And they cried unto the LORD, and said, We have sinned, because we have forsaken the LORD, and have served Baalim and Ashtaroth: but now deliver us out of the hand of our enemies, and we will serve thee.

      1Sa 12:11 And the LORD sent Jerubbaal, and Bedan, and Jephthah, and Samuel, and delivered you out of the hand of your enemies on every side, and ye dwelled safe.

      1Sa 12:12 And when ye saw that Nahash the king of the children of Ammon came against you, ye said unto me, Nay; but a king shall reign over us: when the LORD your God [was] your king.

      1Sa 12:13 Now therefore behold the king whom ye have chosen, [and] whom ye have desired! and, behold, the LORD hath set a king over you.

      1Sa 12:14 If ye will fear the LORD, and serve him, and obey his voice, and not rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then shall both ye and also the king that reigneth over you continue following the LORD your God:

      1Sa 12:15 But if ye will not obey the voice of the LORD, but rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then shall the hand of the LORD be against you, as [it was] against your fathers.

      1Sa 12:16 ¶ Now therefore stand and see this great thing, which the LORD will do before your eyes.

      1Sa 12:17 [Is it] not wheat harvest to day? I will call unto the LORD, and he shall send thunder and rain; that ye may perceive and see that your wickedness [is] great, which ye have done in the sight of the LORD, in asking you a king.

      1Sa 12:18 So Samuel called unto the LORD; and the LORD sent thunder and rain that day: and all the people greatly feared the LORD and Samuel.

    • @ Eric, maybe you can bring in the video – October Surprise to Carterize Obama from the Alex Jones Channel on Youtube.com.

      I read the pdf link you gave: “A brief point on Mormonism. It’s not Christianity. I hope everyone knows that and agrees on that.”

      “http://www.withoneaccord.org/assets/images/freedownloads/Mitt.pdf”

      This is in line with what I was trying to say about the Mormon link to the killing of Ambassador Stevens in Libya, mentioned in the video.

      “You must also realize that Mormons have been positioning themselves in government for decades. A disproportionate number of FBI agents, CIA agents, State Department people and other government officials are loyal LDS. At one time, three of the Joint Chiefs of Staff were loyal Mormons.”

      If you get another video although you have the right link, then the video is being prevented from going viral.

      Just saying…

      Blessings,

      Hey Debra. :)

      Here’s the honest truth of it, ranting aside. ;) I “get” where L.A. and others are coming from on this.

      I’ve been in prayer and I won’t know what I’m going to exactly until I’m standing in that booth. That’s the truth. The Lord’s will be done. Today was admittedly blowing off a little steam and I hope I didn’t overdo it. :)

      Since L.A. didn’t blow me away I *think* I’m ok. Hope so otherwise I’ll accept the rebuke earned.

      I think we’re ALL frustrated and disgusted with what we’ve seen happen with this country and our leaders. Speaking to myself here right off the bat: We have to be careful to NOT take that out on others and especially our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. I hope people

      Y’know…I almost wonder if L.A. had a knowing and mischievious grin on his face when he posted the blog this morning. Just have a funny feeling… ;)

    ….That’s it. I’m done. I’ve just lost all respect for LA. That you’re voting for either puppet, is incredibly sad. I thought you’d be smarter than to fall for the “good cop, bad cop” fake partisan narrative. Did Obama save us from Bush? Maybe Romney will save us from Obama… Very sad. This has been a very disillusioning week in my former respect for you.

    Just for the record:
    Romney supports NDAA.
    Romney supports the “Federal” Reserve private banking cartel.
    Romney pushed gun laws.
    Romney profited from an abortion company.
    Romney is now even pushing obamacare- probably realizing the insurance companies are not giving up the power Obama just gave them, so easily, and Romney fell fight in line and started praising it.
    Romney is funded by the very same people as Obama, and *is* Obama to ayone paying any real attention.

    Very sad…

    • Eric W. said

      I have to agree with you on the specific track record there as far as Romney is concerned and obviously I agree on the whole “puppets/good cop/bad cop” concept as well.

      I don’t agree on the “losing respect” concept, though. If he has time I’d like to see L.A. elaborate on where he’s coming from.

      Not that he has to justify himself to any of us mind you. :)

    • ascetic43 said

      I guess that’s true, and we’re all entitles to our own opinions, but I’ve lost all respect for his discernment, and the competence of his socio-policical perspective. This is just really sad to watch. I expected better, or I wouldn’t be so let down…. Cheers.

    • words of a foreinger said

      I totally agree with. I have not unsubcribed to these blogs, really out of laziness, but I will read them once in a while. You are right on about the discernment. Most of the men in these “prophetic” warning ministry stuff lack it Big Time. Rob Skiba is false teacher, saw someone mention him on here. He supports slews of those heretical known false prophets in that charismaniac madness, is harcore into
      Hebrew Roots movement too. The embrace of the catholic FALSE teaching by MANY of these men, now the mormonism crap. It is indeed SAD and unfortunate. Seems everyone longs to be a prophet or embraces the prophetic -not that there is anything wrong with that- but hardly anyone has discernment, just look at the condition of the church and you can see that cold hard fact. Sad…. I digress

    • richard said

      The following are 25 horrible statistics about the U.S. economy that Barack Obama does not want you to know….

      #1 The percentage of Americans that own homes is dropping rapidly. According to Gallup, the current level of homeownership in the United States is the lowest that Gallup has ever measured.

      #2 Home prices in the U.S. continue to fall like a rock as well. They have declined for six months in a row and are now down a total of 35 percent from the peak of the housing bubble. The last time that home prices in the United States were this low was back in 2002.

      #3 Last year, an astounding 53 percent of all U.S. college graduates under the age of 25 were either unemployed or underemployed.

      #4 Back in 2007, about 10 percent of all unemployed Americans had been out of work for 52 weeks or longer. Today, that number is above 30 percent.

      #5 When Barack Obama first became president, the number of “long-term unemployed workers” in the United States was 2.6 million. Today, it is 5.3 million.

      #6 The average duration of unemployment in the United States is about three times as long as it was back in the year 2000.

      #7 Despite what the mainstream media would have us to believe, the truth is that the percentage of working age Americans that are employed is not increasing. Back in March 2010, 58.5 percent of all working age Americans were employed. In March 2011, 58.5 percent of all working age Americans were employed. In March 2012, 58.5 percent of all working age Americans were employed. So how can Barack Obama and the mainstream media claim that the employment situation in the United States is getting better? The employment rate is still essentially exactly where it was when the last recession supposedly ended.

      #8 Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the United States had jobs. Today, less than 65 percent of all men in the United States have jobs.

      #9 In 1962, 28 percent of all jobs in America were manufacturing jobs. In 2011, only 9 percent of all jobs in America were manufacturing jobs.

      #10 In some areas of Detroit, Michigan you can buy a three bedroom home for just $500.

      #11 According to one recent survey, approximately one-third of all Americans are not paying their bills on time at this point.

      #12 Since Barack Obama entered the White House, the price of gasoline has risen by more than 100 percent.

      #13 The student loan debt bubble continues to expand at a very frightening pace. Recently it was announced that total student loan debt in the United States has passed the one trillion dollar mark.

      #14 Incredibly, one out of every four jobs in the United States pays $10 an hour or less at this point.

      #15 Household incomes all over the United States continue to fall. After adjusting for inflation, median household income in America has declined by 7.8 percent since December 2007.

      #16 Over the past several decades, government dependence has risen to unprecedented heights in the United States. The following is how I described the explosive growth of social welfare benefits in one recent article….

      Back in 1960, social welfare benefits made up approximately 10 percent of all salaries and wages. In the year 2000, social welfare benefits made up approximately 21 percent of all salaries and wages. Today, social welfare benefits make up approximately 35 percent of all salaries and wages.

      #17 In November 2008, 30.8 million Americans were on food stamps. Today, more than 46 million Americans are on food stamps.

      #18 Right now, more than 25 percent of all American children are on food stamps.

      #19 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, today 49 percent of all Americans live in a home that receives some form of benefits from the federal government.

      #20 Over the next 75 years, Medicare is facing unfunded liabilities of more than 38 trillion dollars. That comes to $328,404 for each and every household in the United States.

      #21 During the first quarter of 2012, U.S. public debt rose by 359.1 billion dollars. U.S. GDP only rose by 142.4 billion dollars.

      #22 At this point, the U.S. national debt is rising by more than 2 million dollars every single minute.

      #23 The U.S. national debt has risen by more than 5 trillion dollars since the day that Barack Obama first took office. In a little more than 3 years Obama has added more to the national debt than the first 41 presidents combined.

      #24 The Federal Reserve bought up approximately 61 percent of all government debt issued by the U.S. Treasury Department during 2011.

      #25 The Federal Reserve continues to systematically destroy the value of the U.S. dollar. Since 1970, the U.S. dollar has lost more than 83 percent of its value.

      But the horrible economic statistics only tell part of the story.

      In communities all over America there is a feeling that something fundamental has changed. Businesses that have been around for generations are shutting their doors and there is a lot of fear in the air. The following is a brief excerpt from a recent interview with Richard Yamarone, the senior economist at Bloomberg Brief….

    • Eric W. said

      Richard: That’s it? Copy and paste stats that I already know are even worse than that from a GOP or probably Romney’s website? Doesn’t answer my questions at all.

      I know how screwed the country is believe me.

      The difference is that I have NO illusions that another Bush style neocon RINO is going to make any difference whatsoever.

      RINO Neocons started the mess. Obama and his guys made it a thousand times worse. That’s reality.

      ^^ That’s not change…that’s more of the same either way.

      I don’t even have to talk about globalists, CFR, Trilateralist, Bildbergers and the rest of it to see how absurd that is.

      Just LOOK over the last decade, who made what decisions, people’s voting records, and the results thereof. Plenty of Rs and Ds together all the way. It’s all public record. LOOK at it. Don’t stop at speeches, rhetoric, and talking points off propoganda outlets like campaign websites and such.

      Please folks, let’s have a real conversation. Spare me copy and pasting talking points off websites.

      That’s a waste of my time and I consider a lot of it suspect propoganda anyways whether it’s R or D. The heck with that.

      If so called Romney supports are honest about it, kit boils down to “Not Obama” and “lesser of two evils”

      Those are the so called arguments. Fine, I get it. :)

      There’s really not much else past that because Romney is a flat out pitiful candidate. I’ve never seen LESS energy and enthusiasm for a candidate in my admittedly not very long 36 years of life although Bob Dole was an obvious “punt the football” as well. Another globalist by the way. Another 32-33 degree Mason by the way, like most of the world leaders on BOTH sides of the so called aisle are.

      I’m a 10000000 percent on the “No-Bama” train! But I just can’t delude myself about Romney or the GOP at this point.

      There’s no “wrong” answer here. :) If someone has prayed about this and they have peace with the Lord to vote for (fill in the blank) then that’s great.

      But on the same note, if a person has prayed about it before the Lord and has a peace to NOT participate in this charade then that’s fine, too.

      I’ve made my case specifically across several threads. At least two of them.

      I don’t want to filibuster L.A’s forum and flirt with being obnoxious. Please look over all of my posts that I’ve made. I really don’t want to repeat myself and get tedious, either. :)

    • richard said

      Eric you are right voting for these two clowns is a lesser of two evils. The less evil is Romney. I was a delegate in Colorado for Ron Paul so you are preaching to the wrong crowd!

    • Ask Netanyahu who he would rather be President? That says it all right there. Why does Obama hate Netanyahu? Is it because hes coming from the mindset of a Muslim who naturally hate Jews? Could anything be worse for our country? Under the leadership of M Romney we will bless Israel, and sit down and talk with Israel. That in itself will bring Gods blessing back on America.

      Lets play the what if game….

      What if BO is not just a regular polititian?

      What if BO is a closet Muslim and was sent to destroy America in whatever way he could legally, as President ,by abusing the powers given him?

      What is BO isn’t as inept as he appears but its only a cover for behind the scenes scheming and selling out the store?

      What if BO has been sharing all of our secrets with Arab countries?

      What if he has looked the other way, knowing the Arabs would be doing this or that and didn’t warn anybody, though he knew?

      What if hes send our troops out with no bullets and is secretly helping the other side?

      Mind you, I’m not making any accusations, but only playing the what if game.

      Also who does the man surround himself with? Doesn’t that speak volumes right there? About the character of a person? Look at the people Obama has put in high positions. What kind of a mindset would give these types of people positions of power? Was it because he knew the damage they would do to America? And isn’t that his goal? Look at the Supreme court. Who will he put in there if granted another 4 years? And won’t that very act change the America that we know, maybe forever? Wouldn’t it be better for a level headed Romney to be given that job? If Romney was Pres, would we all be worrying that he would declare marshall law to stay in power? Yet we say that about Obama. Doesn’t that settle it then?
      That there’s a difference between the two?

      MRomney is a regular politian who also has a heart. He has changed his views on such things as abortions for the better. He is also a compassionate person. We know this because there was no shortage of people willing to testify to his character. He lived, what BO only talks about.

      God bless you La for your stand. You will be mobbed by Christians who will try to change your mind. It was the christians staying home in the first electtion that handed our country over to Obama in the first place.We can’t look at this election as between two men. It needs to be looked at a race between a Muslim and an American. Case closed.
      I’ll be voting for Mitt Romney, and boy I’ve been waiting for four years to finally get to vote. Believe me, I’m not going to waste my vote by voting for a fictional character. People need to wake up and fight for their country! By prayer and by their Vote!

    • Eric W. said

      “The less evil is Romney. ”

      I’d argue “different” not “lesser.” There’s a number of posts written around here already that, IMO, make the case specifically.

    • JLL said

      After another four years of Obama, it’s guaranteed there won’t be a US to save. The same is not true with Romney as president.

      I’m assuming we’ll be into the End Times — and hopefully not here — in four years or less. But just in case the Lord tarries, I’ll opt for the greater chance the country will still be semi-recognizable at that time.

    • At the Republican convention, the people from Romney’s church, people from his past were so ready to vouch for his character and lifelong good deeds. These were regular people who were not making this stuff up. It was verified, otherwise the left would have been all over it. What about the story when his friends little girl went missing and he made it his business to suspend what he was doing and organise a search to find the child? It took days of searching, but they found her and restored her to her parents.Have you heard similar stories of compassion about this President?What about his brother who lives in a hut? Where is his compassion? and care for the people around him when he has to spend his own money. Hes not even a legal citizen. When we don’t cast our vote, we allow that fraud to continue.
      What about when our Ambassador was brutally killed and Obama goes to sleep! Do you really think that Romney would act the same way? At his funeral, when BO talked about the Ambassador, he was just reading words on a page. No emotions. No feelings, no tender heart, that the Lord could reach. If Romney is a Rhino, who cares? At least hes not a Muslim who is far worse than the worse Rhino we can imagine, coming into office fully armed with a preplanned scheme to take down America AND Israel. Thats where his emotions lie, with all things Muslim and not with the welfare of American citizens.

    I personally choose not to participate in the voting illusion any longer. I sincerely don’t think either party has the American people’s best interest at heart. When I look at the two-party system as it has existed for quite some time now, I see that we have been duped into thinking that we can make a difference when we go to the polls. I’ll admit that in the last couple of elections I voted for Bush thinking that I would keep those “evil” left-wing communists out of office, not realizing that in voting for Bush that I was voting for a man, under whose rule who would begin to erect the structure for the police state control grid that we see tightening it’s grip on us today under the Obama dynasty. 9/11, the “Patriot” Act, all would prove necessary for the elite’s intrusion into our lives and setting the stage for the coming antichrist. While not a Ron Paul supporter, I know for fact that he was dismissed outright, lambasted at every opportunity by the Illuminati-controlled media because he posed a threat to the Illuminati-controlled two-party system. We have to be kidding ourselves if we think that by choosing EITHER of the two candidates that we can honestly make a difference. You can’t solve a spiritual problem with a political solution. The fact of the matter is that Romney and Obama both endorse the NDAA, the Patriot Act, federal restrictions on gun ownership, and a plethora of other important issues. I have a bumper sticker on my car which reads:

    VOTING: (adj) An irrational action whereby human cattle occasionally suggest different masters so as to reroute their path to slaughter.

    We are duped into participating in a luciferian process and then told if we don’t participate then we are not honoring those who shed their blood for our freedom. What a load of bs! The patriotic thing would be not to vote! I fully support our troops, our God-given freedom and I love this great land but I will no longer comply with my American “duties” so to speak by doing my part to “elect” these traitorous bought and paid for puppets! Think about it, when was the last time you saw meaningful change by voting for one or the other. Abortion still stands, and why wouldn’t it. It’s luciferian blood sacrifice and that is very necessary for the elite to maintain their power and to advance the kingdom of the fallen one on earth. Liberal or conservative, it doesn’t matter. Neither of them will EVER do anything about abortion for this simple reason. This is but one issue among many others.
    We must pray like our lives depended on it, because they do. We must not sit on the sidelines and do nothing, but we kid ourselves if we think we can make a difference by going to the polls.

    • ascetic43 said

      I no longer trust or respect LA’s discernment. He obviously has no clue. Anyone falling for Romney couldn’t have the faintest idea. first he falls in line with the Neo-Con Iran war drums, now he’s supporting Romney. I’m done with Mr. Marzulli. But, I’m glad some of his readers know better… Cheers.

    • lamarzulli said

      Hi ascetic – he’s the lesser of 2 evils but he gets the Palestinian issue. What can I say, I wanted Ron Paul. Glad your done with me! LOL!

    • Kent said

      Ascetic43, I completely disagree with your comment about L.A. I have the utmost respect for L.A. and his ministry, and no one should throw a brother in Christ under the bus because we disagree with a few talking points. I will continue to visit this blog every day as I have done so for quite some time now knowing that I get a unique perspective into unfolding world events. I appreciate L.A.’s spirit, his wit and deeply respect his calling, though I disagree with the Romney comment. We need to demonstrate our love more toward one another despite our differences. That’s all.

    • Eric W. said

      Agreed Kent, there’s a lack of balance and hot headed rushing to judgements here.

      I HOPE I’ve expressed my political disagreement respectfully and humbly and I’m eager to hear more from L.A. about some of this, where he’s coming from, why, etc. and he usually can be counted on to do exactly those things and in an honest and forthright manner. :)

      I’ve seen TONS of arguments amongst Christians over this voting thing. Satan is using it as a splinter device. It’s just not worth that, folks. Don’t fall into that trap!

      At the end of the day, ultimately, we know what course we’re going to be on because it’s in the Bible regardless of the window dressing.

      If it makes some people feel better to vote, then so be it. If it doesn’t, then don’t. In the end, God is in control and it’s clear Biblically where we’re headed. :)

      LA: he’s the lesser of 2 evils but he gets the Palestinian issue. ”

      How do you know that?

      Or…why do you believe him? Romney has flip flopped so many times that John Kerry’s lawyers called him the other day.

      Don’t get me wrong. I like what he said here. I simply don’t take him at his word and I’m not sure why you do. :)

      Why do Christians keep settling for lesser of two evils? Aren’t we tired of that yet?

      I’d argue it’s a different kind of evil not lesser and I’ve put up some links around here today that IMHO make that case so I don’t wan to repeat myself. :)

    • If you’re voting don’t be surprised if it seems like you hear a lot of preaching.

      In any case, you need to do what you believe is right before Christ. “If our heart does not convict us then we have confidence before God.” and “Those that know to do right and do not do it — this too is sin.”

      If you believe that “voting for the lesser evil is right” that’s what you should do.
      If you believe the “devil that you know is better than the one you don’t” that’s what you should do.

      As for which is which, I can’t say.

      If you believe that as citizens of New Jerusalem, warriors in the Army of God, and ambassadors of the Kingdom of Heaven — we should remain indifferent to worldly politics — most definitely that’s what we need to do.

      Whatever we do, if it’s without love, it doesn’t matter. And we have this via Paul — we should not hold their trespasses against others — especially our siblings in Christ.

      My choice is stay out of worldly politics. Prayer is infinitely more powerful than voting always. So there’s no call for me to judge another’s servants about what makes no difference. Hope they don’t lose their savor while trying to be salt and light. And I pray they don’t conform to the world, while rendering unto caesar what’s caesar’s.

      2 Corinthians 5

      18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

      2 Corinthians 5

      20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

      “Render to God that which is God’s.”

    • Matt said

      Ron Paul has no idea of the threat Iran poses with nuclear weapons. We cannot stop Iran from getting nukes at this point… we must step up the game. We’ve “not overreacted” for too long thanks to pacifists like Ron Paul.

  8. Jake Franklin said

    Glad to see that most of us are on the same page regarding Mittens.

    Another qualm I have with Marzulli is his interview with Howard Storm in Watchers 4. Near death experiences are almost always unscriptural, and Storm’s is no exception. Plus, if the guy really did meet Jesus in Heaven, why did he afterwards become a preacher in the doctrinally wacky Church of Christ? Experieces like that of Storm’s have lead me to believe that there is something rather sinister behind NDE’s. Surely a Bible-believer like Marzulli would compare what Storm experienced to what the Bible states about Hell?

    • lamarzulli said

      Jake – I spent two days with Howard. The guy talks about Jesus all the time. How can you possibly judge him? He also was not in hell, he was in a dark place perhaps the same place that the rich man was in and resides in the bowels of the earth. Storm was an atheist now he’s a born again preacher, what do you want him to do that would appease you? I give up!

    • words of a foreinger said

      I have not seen the Watchers so I cannot say, but I will say this, the bible is very clear (2Corin 11) about another “Jesus”. Just cause someone talks about Jesus all the time doesnt mean they are talking about The Lord Jesus Christ The Only Begotten Son. Not saying to be skeptical of everyone either, but there IS very much a false Jesus in the church, I see it all the time with folks I have come across in spiritual warfare. John Crowder, PERFECT example, he talks about Jesus all the time, had a supernatural experiance while he was on acid and he came to “Jesus” while high. Well, now he preaches “drunken glory” “tokin the ghost” and even one of his followers has come out saying that these “glory experiances in the ‘holy spirit'” drunkeness is so euphoric that its likes “sex with Jesus”, now THAT is heresy! But, kids LOVE that ministry, and because Crowder and his crew name the name of “Jesus”, they think it’s legit. ALL I am saying, am NOT ranking on that man in your vid (havent even seen the vid) is that just cause someone says Jesus dont mean they are referring to the real Messiah.
      Take care

    Spot on update from PITN and Gary Stearman about the Middle East.

    • I will continue to state it until someone hears me I guess. As I pointed out in my predictive programming interpretation that this is exactly what would happen. Admittedly, I was wrong about which Olympics (Paralympics, not the “regular” Olympics) and the location of the event (not in London). However, I had pointed out that the predictive programming would happen after the games (Paralympics) had ended and before the new moon. That this attack and incitement would be used as a tool to blame Jews and Christians. That it would be a ridiculous accusation and proven quickly to be inaccurate, but that it wouldn’t matter. I stated that it would be the catalyst to kick off the events in the east fomenting the fury found there. I stated that security would be at the heart of the issue. I was wrong about the number of people that would die as well, but people did die and we have not seen the ‘end’ of this event.

    • Eric W. said

      “predictive programming”

      What is this?

    • PP is the Illuminati calling card. Think batman movie massacre. They cannot help themselves in boasting about what they are about to do. The media and more specifically movies are their prophets. I gave warning that there would be an attack that would take place after the olympics and before the new moon. I was wrong on that because i was ignorant of the paralympics. I was wrong on location as well. That’s the problem with these things. The fact remains that how it would occur and the events that followed are taking place exactly as the predictive programming showed it would.

    After having read the various comments here I would suggest that everyone vote for Busch,
    Anheuser-Busch because there is nothing better to cool off a hothead, wow, I just made a commercial.

    I think perhaps what it comes down to it, 55% of population will vote for a Obama either directly or indirectly, so we will have Obummer for four more years, end of story. Now if you vote for Romney there might be a slim chance of no more Obummer at all. Perhaps it makes sense to vote for the lesser of two weasels. That is the joy of the two party system. Sort of stuck between a barack and a hard place.

      Again, I don’t need go into any “conspiracy theory” here.

      Black panthers? All good. Dead people, illegals, jail inmates, people getting bussed in, ACORN type groups (still around under different names)…

      ^^ Everyone forget about all that? You better believe it’s all still in play.

      If Obama doesn’t win I’ll know the so called powers that be have opted for a window dressing change and I’ll be looking for Obama to head to the UN or somewhere in the EU. One way or the other, he’s not going away, I know that much.

    EVERYONE….

    Ask yourself this:

    WHY is there “an exact replica” of The Oval Office in the top floor
    of THE LARGEST MORMON TEMPLE in the USA…
    not far from Washington D.C. ( I think it is in Maryland somewhere) ???

    VERY Interesting…I’d say!!! How it fits in to things, I do NOT fully know. BUT…

    We must also remember…you do NOT get to be a candidate for The Presidency…

    UNLESS you are “chosen” to be there by “The Elite”…and permitted by God.

    The Elite always have “their puppet” in place.

    As CHRISTIANS…our hope is NOT in either political party…but in JESUS as KING.

    PLUS…see what 1 Timothy 2:1-2 says…

    “First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings,
    be made on behalf of ALL men, for KINGS and ALL who are in A HIGH POSITION,
    in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.”

    Also remember…

    Proverbs 21:1…
    “The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD;
    He turns it wherever He wishes.”

    CONSIDER THIS:

    EVERY KING…( ie. Any person IN A HIGH POSITION ) ………

    is subject to THE HAND of The LORD !!! That includes Obama or Romney!!

    Look throughout the Bible and you will see that GOD uses even EVIL & Wicked
    kings to bring about HIS DIVINE PURPOSES. Remember all the evil kings
    in the lineage of Israel and Judah….yet God’s purposes STILL prevail
    for the Nation of ISRAEL !!! You can bet your last nickle on that TRUTH.

    Also, See Daniel chapters 2, 3, and 4 about Nebuchadnezzar….
    as one major example of a king that learned a hard lesson…for GOD’s GLORY.

    God brought forth ONE OF THE GREATEST PROPHECIES IN ALL THE BIBLE
    by means of this prideful king…a prophecy in which the END TIMES are told !!!

    Proverbs 16:4…
    “The LORD has made EVERYTHING for HIS own purpose,
    Even “the wicked” for the day of evil.”

    Therefore, understand & know this:

    JESUS IS LORD….HE WILL HAVE HIS WAY…..

    IN THE CHURCH……and…WITH ISRAEL…..and….IN THE NATIONS !!!!

    BE CERTAIN of THAT……..

    • Eric W. said

      …….and “YES”………………we gotta PRAY & SEEK HIS FACE !!!

      2 Chronicles 7:14

      “…and [ IF ] My people, who are called by My name, humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways,

      THEN I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

      I am curious….

      HAS “ANYBODY” heard “their pastor” get serious about REPENTANCE ??

      HAS “ANYBODY” heard “their friends” decide to PRAY & FAST ??

      HAS “ANYBODY” decided “to turn from their wicked ways” ??

      ANYONE ????

      Russ Dizdar says “the average” church prays about 2 minutes per service!

      Gee, THAT will spark revival….NOT !!!

      Of the number of churches I have been to in my area, it is the same!

      SO, unless THE CHURCH gets serious before God,

      we best prepare for “a LESS tranquil” and “a LESS peaceful” life !!!

      Because it will NOT matter “who” is in office…

      IF THE CHURCH DOES “NOT” PRAY & SEEK HIS FACE !!!!!!!!!!

      That is the sobering reality!

      Kirk

      Remember,
      THE CHURCH SAID “little” and DID “little”…in order for Hitler to rise to power.

    • Kirk Domitrovic said

      And Just for the sake “of the record”…

      since there are ONLY “2” to vote for in reality…based on our “voting system”…

      I am voting AGAINST Obama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      That means Romney “WILL” get my vote…… “by default”.

      ( Any other “choice” is a vote FOR …O’bummer !!….even a “write-in” vote! )

      So … Sure… “Romney’s words” may seem to be “better” in some ways,

      BUT, do I feel “the utmost confidence” in Romney…just another politician???

      Hardly !!!

      Yet I will NEVER cast a clear “vote” in the way of O’bummer…that is certain.

      PLUS, I am NOT going to “vote” as a matter of principle “just to show them”…

      Or to “voice” my displeasure with “the apparent choices”….

      CAUSE I DO “NOT” THINK EITHER IS A “REAL” CHOICE !!!!!!!!

      But, remember, THIS SYSTEM is part of THE WORLD SYSTEM.

      And that brings me to…

      PRAYING THAT GOD’s WILL IS DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN !!!

    Yes, this election is terrifying! Because of the 4 years that follow. And yes I think Mittens is WAY out of touch with the real world. But I do think he is possibly a more moral candidate. And I do know for sure he and Bibi are tight longtime friends. And frankly, at this point, if the ONLY REASON I HAVE TO VOTE FOR HIM IS HIS SUPPORT OF BIBI AND ISRAEL, SO BE IT!!!!
    I would still be willing to write in for Ron Paul, but am unsure of his stance on Israel. But I’m probably writing in Jesus Christ! Seriously!
    I think Kent has it right in 2 places. 1.PRAY, PRAY, PRAY! (please join me un the 40 days of fasting, praying, humbling and repenting for the U.S. Starting Sept. 28 til election day that Billy Graham is literally begging Christians to do! He is not saying God spoke to him about it, but I can tell from his fervantcy and tone that Yaweh is really serious and this IS THE LAST CHANCE to corporately change what is about to go down in this country.)

    • Ally said

      And 2. We are only as cattle and the slaughter house seems a little farther away with Mittens. Lol!
      But seriously guys, our lives do depend on this. Our trust in Jesus is the be all end all. I need that priestly garment where the stones light up when you ask God a question. Just for the election mind you! ;)
      I wonder what God hasplanned for us if we will really truly pray and fast for these 40 days? Maybe something awesome or maybe just a more pleasant punishment. I wonder if he would give us a real candidate to vote for maybe.
      All things are possible with God!

      Ally. I’m with you. I’ll think I’ll write in Jesus Christ as well. :)

    • Perspicacious comments by Bill Kristol on today’s Weekly Standard online (Sept 18, 2012). He shows why both Obama and Romney do not get it about the American public, holding them in contempt. He says both are “arrogant.” I agree.
      He says one has to vote for Romney as the lesser evil. It’s hard, I know, to go put that check by the Romney name, and I have spent months saying I would not vote. But I probably will unless something major happens before Nov. 6. Incidentally, Nov. 6 is also my 44th wedding anniversary to my late husband, a person I long to see.

    Wow! There is a reason for the saying…”religion and politics don’t mix!” I am with LA on this one. Either way, the guy we end up with will still be a politician and a puppet! We, as Christians, are to LOVE one another, not attack each other over differences of political opinion! Satan loves it when we do this! Jesus is coming for us and we won’t be here for much longer. God will protect us from Satan/Illuminati, etc… Just keep praying!! God is ALWAYS in control!

      I agree with you Dawn. I think it’s already set and already decided by the Bilderburgers and whoever else runs this country. I think the two “contestants” have been chosen and we to think we get to choose. I really do! But God is soveign and He has our backs. Really, prayer is all we have left….

  15. Ben Murphy said

    The real problem is there are only 2 candidates to vote for with the potential to win….Barry Sotero?? or Mitt Romney.
    I , like L.A. will be voting for Mitt because of several reasons and the stance on Isreal helps a lot. Remember, GOD establishes
    kings and kingdoms, so all things will work together for HIS good and according to HIS plan. I can tell you all one thing though
    without reservation or hesitation, I long for the day when the only KING that I will serve and worship is on the throne in Jerusalem
    and the greed, corruption, lies and power hungry politicians are all gone. Now that is going to be awesome! I also want to express my gratitude to L.A. Marzulli for his continue faith and service to our LORD JESUS, Bravo brother, don’t let the harsh comments bring you down or upset you. The attacks of our spiritual enemy seem to be increasing exponentially now and even brothers and sisters in Christ are losing patience with one another. We need to be in constant prayer and take deep breathes
    before speaking harsh words to each other. Things are only going to get worse, the Bible tells us that. We need to observe and
    warn the lost ………. and try to inform those who don’t understand where we are in Bible prophecy.(which is hard to do when the seem to have blinders on)

    I agree! So many famous Christians are using their influence to tell Christians to throw their vote away and feel completely justified, and unresponsible for the consequences of doing that. Thank you LA for using your influence for good.

      I’ll co sign this post.

      I REALLY hope I haven’t come across as combative and argumentative here on the board today.

      I’ve been posting in between numerous tasks and I assure you all I’m in good mood and trying to fight or argue here. :)

      L.A. has my email address. I’m sure if I’ve gone over the top here today I’ll find out about it one way or the other. :shock: ;)

      Your post made me realize what I think the REAL argument is here at the core of it all.

      It isn’t about Romney, Obama, or anyone else ultimately.

      What this all REALLY is about is:

      Do you believe your vote actually counts and makes a difference?

      I don’t.

      I’ve made my case why I feel that way specifically all over the board today.

      For other various reasons, other people do including L.A. himself obviously.

      I’m glad they all feel that way although I’m not really sure why looking over everything that’s happened in this country just since 9-11 by the hands of both Rs and Ds.

      ^^
      I think that’s really it in a nutshell when you boil ALL of this discussion down to its core element. (At least the political aspect.)

    • Elaine said

      think of it this way?…..God is omnipotent and knows what we will do and knows what choices we will make. Does that mean that we should do nothing and choose nothing? We still have to strive to do His will.
      For instance, we have all had some point in our lives when we thought we were donating to a “good” cause only to find out that there was corruption and the charity was a sham that only made money for the organization and the donations never made it to the starving children or building homes in a disaster area or…….doesn’t matter what it was…..we are saddened but are we guilty? No, the Lord knows our heart and is pleased that we were charitable.
      Each person should decide on their vote as if they were the tie breaker. One vote that elects Romney or one vote that was not made and tips the scales back to Obama.

  17. Eric,
    I know that everything you do comes out of your heart, and not just to be “combative and argumentative ” The problem is that Christians are looking at this election as just between two polititians. They are not. Jesus said to His disciples, haven’t I chosen you 12 and one is a devil?” We could say this same thing now. Our votes DO count. It was the Christians who threw the election 4 years ago, by believing their single vote didn’t matter. Well it did, because there wasn’t just one or two that felt that way but thousands of them thought that their little vote doesn’t matter. I’m tired of hearing Christians just give up by saying we are all puppets and the Illuminatti pulls all the strings. What? What about prayer? Greater is He thats in us than he that is in the world. Why do we just give up? Why don’t we use our faith and fight in prayer and vote and pray that God will cause Mitt Romney to bless America and to bless Israel, so that we all might live in peace and do the work that God has called each one of us to do.

    • Eric W. said

      “It was the Christians who threw the election 4 years ago, by believing their single vote didn’t matter.”

      The amount of mass fraud and all FAR overrode any of the Christians and other strays that didn’t vote.

      “I’m tired of hearing Christians just give up by saying we are all puppets and the Illuminatti pulls all the strings. What? What about prayer? Greater is He thats in us than he that is in the world.”

      Prayer? Certainly! But we’re kidding ourselves if we think we elect our Presidents. They’re pre-selected for us.

      ” Why do we just give up? Why don’t we use our faith and fight in prayer and vote and pray that God will cause Mitt Romney to bless America and to bless Israel, so that we all might live in peace and do the work that God has called each one of us to do.”

      Certainly can’t hurt!

    • Not necessasarily Eric, with reference to us picking our Presidents. I heard someone who knows the Illuminatti say that they were stunned when Obama got in, and said that John M was “their man” The Illuminatti can make all the plans they want, and yes a lot of it comes to pass, but thats not because they have all power, but because we in the church don’t pray any more. Theres not the huge prayer meetings of the old days. Thats why evil is advancing. We’re not doing what God has called us to do. And I’m not talking about one or two in our prayer closets, but collectively. In mass. Like when they beat the disciples for preaching in Jesus Name, so they all came together in one accord. With one mind to PRAY against their government leaders. There is great power in prayer, but today its not used. We have power that could put a halt to all Illuminatti plans for the next hundred years.But we believe the lie that we are weak and at their mercy and that there is nothing we can do. All lies, and propaganda that they want you to believe. God is waiting for the church to believe and start fighting back! We are NOT sitting ducks. We have the Holy Spirit living inside of us, they have the Prince of this world. Who is greater? Shouldn’t we begin to act like it?

    • “Mitt Romney has convinced Bible believers that he is pro-Israel.”

      He has also convinced Netanyahu of the same. And I would think that would be very hard for him to do, knowing what he knows and his ability to go deeply into the backround of individuals and the research that hes privy to. And with all that, he STILL wants Romney. Hes already checked everything out for us, and its plain to see that he hopes the American people will bless Israel by voting in a man they can work with.Mitt Romney

    From:
    “Why the Jewish Rabbis Love the Mormon Church”

    ….”In sum, Mormonism is Judaism, and Judaism is Mormonism. But there is more. The Mormon Church is a Masonic creation. Its founder, Joseph Smith, was a Freemason, and its rituals and doctrines are essentially Masonic. Likewise, Freemasonry is itself a Judaic cult which honors the Jewish Kabbala as its doctrinal and ritualistic source.

    And thus we arrive at another conclusion. Mormonism, Masonry, and Judaism are three integrated components, interlinked and inseparable. All three are antichrist in nature, and serpent-led in spiritual sustenance. They are Satan’s Zionist Army.”

    • Benevolent Troll said

      From wikipedia

      The doctrines of the Latter Day Saint movement, commonly referred to as Mormonism, teach that its adherents are either direct descendants of the House of Israel, or are adopted into it. As such, Judaism is foundational to the history of Mormonism. According to Mormonism, the Jewish people are considered a covenant people of God, held in high esteem, and are respected in the Mormon faith system. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints refers to itself as philo-Semitic in its doctrine.

      Studies have shown that Jews generally view Mormons more positively than any other religious group,[1][2] despite often voting on opposite ends of the political spectrum. Explanations for Jews’ high regard for Mormons is speculated to come both from their solidarity with other historically abused religious minorities and the philo-semitism of Mormon theology.[3]

    • clang said

      Here we go again. At least you admit what you are in your screen name. Now judaism is a cult. Thanks for enlightening us. When you say Mormonism is a cult and has masonic ties, I would agree. But then it all falls apart with the rest of the rubbish you spouted.
      By the way LA, you really set off a firestorm here today. LOL I am torn on this issue but when I go in the voting booth, I will likely hold my nose and pull the lever for the lesser of two evils. I would have preferred just about any of the other Republicans in the primaries but anybody has got to be better than Obama. Then again, maybe Obama is the forerunner to the AC and Romney is the boogie man. Nothing would surprise me anymore.

    • Benevolent Troll said

      I’m sorry,Clang. I’ve been reading a lot about what is being called The Judeo-Christian Myth, and I think maybe we ought to take heed?

      I would venture to say that we are in for some big surprises when it comes to what we
      think we know.

      Here are some quotes to consider. Bear in mind, I’m not telling anyone what to believe. I’m advocating people search these things for themselves. That’s all I’m doing.

      Rabbi Ben Zion Bokser wrote, “This is not an uncommon impression and one finds it sometimes among Jews as well as Christians – that Judaism is the religion of the Hebrew Bible. It is, of course, a fallacious impression. . . Judaism is not the religion of the Bible” (Judaism and the Christian Predicament, New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1967, p. 59).

      Rabbi Moshe M. Maggal, President, National Jewish Information Service wrote: “. . . you will notice the great difference between the Jewish and Christian religions. But these are not all. We consider the two religions so different that one excludes the other. . . we emphasized that there is no such thing as a Judeo-Christian religion. . . . There is not any similarity between the two concepts” (Letter of August 21, 1961).

      The London Jewish World of March 15, 1923 declared: “Fundamentally, Judaism is anti-Christian.”

      Rabbi Martin Siegel: “I am devoting my lecture in this seminar to a discussion of the possibility that we are now entering a Jewish century, a time when the spirit of the community, the non-idealogical blend of the emotional and rational and the resistance to categories and forms will emerge through the forces of anti-nationalism to provide us with a new kind of society. I call this process the Judaization of Christianity because Christianity will be the vehicle through which this society becomes Jewish” (New York Magazine, January 18, 1972, p. 32). word.htm

    What Bibi does, or who he draws closely to is irrelevant. God will protect His people and will fulfill all of His promises to them. What Israel will learn is that her confidence will be in Lord of Hosts and not in man.

    To Kirk:

    This is America. You have a choice to do as you please. My point is obvious.
    To use your logic either Satanist will do. I disagree.
    Also, regarding the Bride who is Israel. Nowhere in the Bible do you have a reference that the church is the Bride of Christ.
    Israel is the Bride of Christ, who ultimately will be the wife; and we (believers today who are in Christ, baptised by the Holy Spirit into His body) are the Body of Christ.

      Pudding:

      I’m not saying that we are Christ, nor do we become Christ.

      The New Testament teaches that we are in Christ. How does this happen? When we believe, the Holy Spirit places us into His Body, and at that moment of belief, seals us as part of His Body (Eph 1:13).

      So all believers, collectively, make up His Body of whom Jesus Chist is the head (Col 1:18; Eph 1:22,23).

      As believers we are part of His Body and Jesus will someday marry His bride. We are part of the groom. Israel is His bride. Jesus will marry His bride someday future. Hope this helps.

    • Kirk Domitrovic said

      Mark Huss…

      Your first paragraph in response to TGBTG …we are in agreement on.

      As to your “statement of my logic”…that “either satanist will do”….
      You must have missed my three earlier blogs today and how I see it.
      Neither candidate is a “real” choice in my view. But in our “system of voting”
      we have “2” options…that is it. So, I choose Romney “by default”….
      cause I have “seen” the hand of Obama and what he has stood for already.
      To not vote, is to vote FOR Obama anyways.
      That is how it is “in this system”….again it is a “worldly system”.

      Regarding:
      The CHURCH being the BRIDE of The Messiah(JESUS).

      What God has to say about THE CHURCH and her relationship as
      The Bride of The Messiah is completely different from what Scripture
      reveals regarding ISRAEL as The Wife of Jehovah. Please follow.

      ALL New Testament passages point to the relationship of The Church
      as The Bride of The Messiah. The picture is of THE CHURCH that is
      “betrothed” as a BRIDE that is NOT YET JOINED to her HUSBAND (Jesus).

      Understand that THE MARRIAGE CEREMONY will take place in HEAVEN
      after the RAPTURE of THE CHURCH…see Revelation 19:7-8.

      The FOUR KEY PASSAGES that speak of THE CHURCH being The Bride:

      (1) The Espousal….as seen in 2 Corinthians 11:2

      “For I am jealous over you with a godly jealousy; For I espoused you
      to one husband, that I might present you as a pure virgin to Christ.”

      (2) The Process of Sanctification or The Maturing of The Bride as seen in
      Ephesians 5:22-33

      22Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
      23For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. 24But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.

      25Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, 26so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. 28So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; 29for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, 30because we are members of His body. 31FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.

      32This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church. 33Nevertheless, each individual among you also is to love his own wife even as himself, and the wife must see to it that she respects her husband.

      (3) The Marriage Ceremony as seen in Revelation 19:7-8

      ” 7“Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.” 8It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

      (4) The Future of The Wife of The Lamb as seen in Revelation 21:9
      ***********
      Please know, The Ancient Jewish Wedding has 4 distinct stages.

      Stage 1 The Arrangement by The Father
      Stage 2 The Fetching of The Bride by The Son
      Stage 3 The Marriage Ceremony of The Bride with Her Groom(Heaven)
      Stage 4 The Marriage Feast or supper (on earth)

      There are 6 stages to ISRAEL being the Wife of Jehovah.

      Stage 1 The Marriage Contract
      Deuteronomy 5:1-3…6:10-15…7:6-11

      Stage 2 The Adultery of ISRAEL against Jehovah
      Jeremiah 3:1-5, 20…and 31:32 shows The Marriage Contract was broken!
      Also see Ezekiel 16:15-34….Hosea 2:2-5…declares ISRAEL’s adultery!

      Stage 3 The Separation of ISRAEL from Jehovah due to Israel’s sin.
      Isaiah 50:1 … Deuteronomy 24:1…God gives ISRAEL time to repent.

      Stage 4 The Divorce of Jehovah from His Wife, ISRAEL
      Jeremiah 3:6-10 God divorces Israel because she didn’t repent!!!

      Stage 5 The Punishment of Israel for her adultery against Jehovah
      Ezekiel 16:35-43…Hosea 2:6-13….Jeremiah 3:11-18

      **** ISRAEL is STILL IN THIS STAGE…all through the TRIBULATION.

      Stage 6 The RE-marriage of ISRAEL with RESTORED BLESSINGS !!!
      jeremiah 31:31-34 A New Marriage Contract with Israel.
      Ezekiel 16:60-63 A New Marriage Contract = An Everlasting Covenant
      Isaiah 54:1-8 Shows the RESTORATION of Israel as Jehovah’s Wife.
      Hosea 2:14-23 Speaks of ISRAEL’s reunion with Jehovah.

      That is WHY scripture shows a distinction between ISRAEL & The Church.

      Jehovah God…The Father…is married to ISRAEL. Wife of Jehovah.
      JESUS…The Son…is soon to be MARRIED to His Bride, The Church.

      The Scriptures show the difference.

      John B:

      Blessings to you as well.

      When Jesus came He stated that He came only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. The gospels have to do with the nation of Israel.

      Years later the risen Lord would explain to the apostle Paul the ‘mysterey’ that was hidden from before the world’ (Eph. 3:1-9).

      There are two groups we are dealing with. Israel and the church.

      The wedding feast you refer to in Matt 22:1-10 is the wedding feast that will come after the Tribulation. Once again,when God is dealing with the Jews, the invitation will go out. The first invitation was to the Jews of Jesus’ day and the invitation was summarlily rejected.

      I agree with you that there are those who are ‘In Christ’ at the wedding feast. Those who are ‘in Christ’ are part of His Body of which He is the
      Head and where the Head is there we also will be as well.

      Those of us who are ‘In Christ’ have already been made perfect. We are complete ‘In Him'(Col 2:10).

      In (Rev 21:2) it is referring to the new Jerusalem, the holy city. It has been adorned and prepared, ready to recieve the Messiah where He will rule forever.

      To all:

      The HOLY Calling – The Body of Christ

      God’s ELECT in THIS CURRENT Age and Dispensation of GRACE, the Dispensation of the Mystery (Ephesians 3:9 ), those of the HOLY Calling, are members of the Body of Christ, and NOT “ELECT ISRAEL”! “Who hath saved us, and called us with an HOLY calling, NOT according to our works, but according to his own purpose and Grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus BEFORE the world began” (2 Timothy 1:9 ).

      Members of the Body of Christ are the Church of the Mystery. A secret that was hid in God. His Body, to be to be joined with its Head, called home at the Rapture, the GLORIOUS meeting in the air, before the “Day of the LORD” begins.

      In Revelation 21 we have the New Heaven and the New Earth; we have the Twelve Tribes of Israel; and Twelve Apostles of the Lamb. So, we have to ask, What has all this to do with the Body of Christ, the Church of the Mystery? OBVIOUSLY this has to do only and solely with the Holy City and with the Bride of the Lamb.

      Christians, in their selfishness, intrude themselves into the place of others as the Bride, and thus lose the blessed enjoyment of their own place which is theirs as part of the Bridegroom!

      The Bride and the Bridegroom, though in a sense are one, are yet distinct. And it is clear from all the scriptures relating to the Mystery, that the members of Christ’s Body are part of the Bridegroom Himself. Whereas the elect Old Testament saints will form the Bride. See Isaiah 12:6 , “Cry out and shout, thou Inhabitress of Zion: For great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.” In Revelation 22:3 , we read “The throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it.” Of the glory of this Holy City other scriptures speak. Take a look at Isaiah 60:3 , Isaiah 60:14 , 1and Isaiah 60:9-20 ; Revelation 21:23-24 , and Revelation 21:27 ; Isaiah 54:11-12 .

      A Chaste Virgin – Husbands and Wives

      True, the Apostle Paul might address the saints concerning his desire to present them “as a chaste virgin to Christ” (2 Cor. 11:2 ). But this no more declares that the Church IS the Bride of Christ than that the Apostle himself was their father (1 Corinthians 4:15 ); or that he was their mother (Galatians 4:19 ). In the one case he spoke of the painful anxiety of a mother; in another of the loving care of a father; while, in 2 Cor. 11:2 , he spoke of the jealousy of the friend of a bridegroom. The “Mystery” was a totally different thing.

      Then in Ephesians 4:28-29 , the argument is that husbands “ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself, for no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord, the Church, for we are members of His Body,” That is, AS Christ loves HIS OWN BODY (Himself (the Head) and the Church (the Head’s Body)); so ought husbands to love their wives. Thus “the Mystery” is employed as an argument as to the reciprocal duties of husbands and wives. In NEITHER case is it said that the Church IS the wife, or that Christ IS the husband. But that AS Christ loves His Body (Himself and the Body of Christ), SO husbands ought to love their own bodies (that is, themselves and their wives).

      The one thing that is clear, is that the Church of the Mystery is the Body of Christ; and that the members of that Body being “in Christ,” are PART OF THE BRIDEGROOM. They cannot possibly, therefore, be the Bride herself as separate and distinct from the Bridegroom.

      Another thing that is certain is that the mystery of the Church was not revealed in the Old Testament, but was “hid in God” (Ephesians 3:9 ) and “kept secret” (Romans 16:25 ); “hid from ages and from generations” (Colossians 1 ;26).

      Before Israel was created for God’s glory, before all of the promises concerning Israel’s coming glory and the millennial reign of Christ on earth, even, before Adam had sinned, or was created, God PREDESTINATED that members of the Body of Christ should be conformed to the image of His Son. (Romans 8:28-29 ). They would be SEATED in the Heavenlies in Christ.

      God’s eternal purpose is to have a company of redeemed sinners SEPERATE and DISTINCT from ALL OTHER companies. Dwell on this.

      These predestinated and justified believers are to be JOINED to Christ as ONE flesh, to make ONE New Man, the Perfect Man, with HEAVENLY citizenship, to appear with Christ in glory. (Ephesians 2:6 ; Ephesians 5:31-32 ; Ephesians 2:5 ; Ephesians 4:13 ; Philippians 3:20-21 ; Colossians 3:1-4 ).

      THIS the Father wants every Christian to make known (Ephesians 3:9 ). And, of course, Satan hates this message with a vicious hatred.

      It is one thing to see an illustration of the Church in the Old Testament; but it is quite another thing to say that this is there revealed, which God distinctly declares was not revealed!

      At the First Resurrection, following Christ’s return to the earth in power and great glory, those of the Heavenly Calling will be resurrected, made ready as a Bride, to be married to Christ, both Head and Body, (the Body which was Raptured, and united in glory with the Head prior to the going forth of the Antichrist). THIS will be the time of the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

      Mark, By the preponderance of the evidence in the NT the “church is the bride of Christ” and furthermore the knowledge of this was foreshadowed in the story of Boaz and Ruth. Boaz representing Christ and Ruth representing the gentiles, Boaz redeemed Ruth and she became his gentile bride.

    • Mark, Who’s teaching is this?

    • mark huss said

      Pudding:

      You do realize that what you are saying contradicts the Scripture. The church, which you declare to be the bride of christ, was in fact a mystery, that is, unknown until God revealed this mystery to the apostle Paul (see above) many years after Ruth and Boaz.

      As was stated above you can read the church (as the bride of christ) into the O.T., but God Himself says it is not there and was not known until it was revealed to Paul.

      Mark Huss

    • Pudding said

      Mark, the mystery was also made know to the prophets as well, whatever the case now that the mystery is known, then do we have the ability to see it in the O.T. and also the N.T.

      Mark, note this: “and by the scriptures of the prophets”

      Romans 16:25-27
      25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,

      26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:

      27 To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.

      MARK HUSS….

      It really blows my mind how you can so THOROUGHLY confuse a simple
      thing as looking at the ANCIENT JEWISH WEDDING…which is a perfect
      representation of the BRIDE …The Church…making herself ready…
      for her Groom ( JESUS ) …for WHOM JESUS will come back FOR His Bride
      as HE states in John 14:1-3 … which is AFTER JESUS has prepared
      a place for us…and WHEN THE FATHER tells The Son…go fetch your Bride!

      After we are “fetched” and taken to HEAVEN…IN THE RAPTURE EVENT…
      Then we go to the Bema Seat judgment …THEN we are given “fine linens”
      because JESUS’ BRIDE…The Church…has made herself ready Rev 19:7-8.

      Right after that …we… THE BRIDE… come with JESUS…our GROOM…
      from HEAVEN to the earth….to kick some anti-Christ hiney and his troops!
      Revelation 19:11-19

      The “mystery” in the Ephesians 5 passage is THAT THERE IS
      a HUSBAND and WIFE relationship between JESUS and THE CHURCH !!!
      THAT is the WHOLE MYSTERY !!! Verse 32 tells us THAT !!!!!

      It is an ANALOGY….a physical picture of a SPIRITUAL reality.

      How can you miss that…it’s right there in black and white?!?!?!

      Even The CHURCH of CORINTH was referred to “as a pure virgin”.
      2 Corinthians 11:2 And THAT is what the CHURCH is to be !!!

      …That JESUS might present to HIMSELF THE CHURCH in all HER GLORY,
      having NO spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that SHE should be
      HOLY and BLAMELESS. Ephesians 5:27

      Any Jewish person would see the connection to what Paul was teaching.

      The Entire Ancient Jewish Wedding paints to whole picture of OUR
      RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS…making THE CHURCH HIS BRIDE.

      GO watch Perry Stone’s -The Ancient Jewish Wedding on Youtube.

      TRULY…it will clear up ALOT for you…and show you WHY JESUS
      said certain things and WHY certain verses will make it SO CLEAR…
      That you’ll “bop” yourself on the head…and you’ll say…

      “Now why didn’t I see that before ??”

      To Kirk and Pudding:

      I appreciate Perry Stone but he is not the final arbiter of truth. I read the Word and have to submit to it. If my understanding is in error then I would want correction. You have yet to show me where in the Bible the church is called the Bride of Christ. I can show you the Scripture that says we are the Body of Christ and Jesus Christ is the Head of that Body. I can show you that I’m already complete in Christ and seated with Him in the heavenlies.

      Regarding Jewish marriage. Yes to all of your input… I agree, except that you put the Body of Christ in the place of the Bride of Christ. We are His Body, the
      nation of Israel (that is believing Jews) will be His Bride.

      By the way, before there ever was man or woman, marriage or the Jewish race, prior to the creation of the world His Body and our relationship to His Body was not made known unto the sons of men. It was a mysterey only to be first revealed by the apostle Paul from the risen Lord Jesus. Eph 1:4;3:5,6. Up to that point, the church and its purpose was unknown (as the Scripture states, disagree with the Scripture if you want…that’s up to you)

      Pudding, cross reference Ephesians 3:5 with Romans 16:25-27 “Was not made known,… as it is now revealed …”

      I do not believe that Jesus is coming to save anybody.. He already came to do that.. The redemptive Messianic ministry was done once and for all as prophesied!… On that cross Jesus cried “It is finished”… Messiah is not coming back for a second round, nor is there another dispensation of grace… The King of kings is coming back and His reward with Him to render to every man according to his deeds Rev22:12 Judgement Day

      “And the Spirit and the bride say come” Rev22:17 (The Spirit and the bride are one, as the church is one).. “Today if you hear His voice harden not your heart” Heb3:15…That verse distinguishes not between jews and gentiles although it was written to Jews yet it bears upon all men.. and Rightly so are these words of the Apostle, because tomorrow will be the voice of condemnation for all the ungodly Jude14,15.. (outside of Grace there is only judgement) That is the crux of the Gospel, the Mystery of the Gospel Eph6:19… when the Last trump (the seventh) blows that is it… “The Mystery of God is finished” Rev10:7 followed by rewards and judgements Rev11:18.

      Mark Huss…

      The CHURCH is The Bride of CHRIST. The CHURCH is “betrothed” to Jesus.
      THAT means we are ENGAGED to be married BY COVENANT.
      THAT is why we partake of communion in HONOR of THAT COVENANT.

      In JEWISH CUSTOM…when the Man & Woman sealed the arrangement
      by The Drinking of the Cup…and the exchanging of Gifts…
      THEY were by law & custom …a MARRIED COUPLE in the eyes of all.

      THE HUSBAND(JESUS) then went away …usually for maybe a year in order
      to prepare a place for her at HIS FATHER’s HOUSE…john 14:1-3

      THEN The Son would come get His Bride when The FATHER said so,
      And The Son’s arrival would be announced “by the blowing of The Trumpet”.
      Sounds like 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 huh?….That’s cause it is!

      And then … The Church…which is The Bride…WHO WAS JUST RAPTURED…
      is now in HEAVEN where she will eventually be married to JESUS…
      just before THEY RETURN TOGETHER to the EARTH to wage war
      upon the anti-CHRIST and his troops. Rev 19:11-19

      The CHURCH is also THE BODY of CHRIST…made of Jews & Gentiles.
      AND JESUS is THE HEAD of THE BODY. It is another TRUTH in picture form.

      These TRUTHS are not “either/ or”…..BOTH Symbols are TRUE.

      Just like JESUS is the LAMB and the LION.
      EACH representation shows another facet of TRUTH that exists.

      We are HIS SHEEP. JESUS is our Shepherd.
      Jesus is the VINE. WE are the BRANCHES.

      They are illustrations of HOW WE ARE RELATED or How God relates to us.

      But someday soon you will see…The Bride, The Church, The Body of Christ…
      THEY EACH SPEAK OF THE SAME GROUP OF PEOPLE !!

      What a GREAT & CREATIVE GOD WE SERVE!!!

    • mark huss said

      Kirk:

      The Bride, the Body, and the church are not the same. You are encouraged to rightly divide the Word. Jesus has unfinished work with the Jewish people. They have yet to recognize their Messiah.

      The purpose of the Book of Revelation is to ‘reveal’ to His people Israel who He is. For example, chapter one’s description. If you insist on pushing the church, the Body of Christ into the Bride of Christ; into places it should not be, go
      ahead. Teachability is part of learning.

  21. Listen, Putting all prejudice aside, what is the Commander in Chief’s Job? Isn’t it to keep us safe? Well do you feel safe with a man who doesn’t understand the Muslim threat? Or who fully understands it but plays dumb and cooperates with it behind the scenes? Growing up with Muslims, tell me how is it that he doesn’t understand that you can’t play nice with them? Americans might have to be educated about that, but how is it that a Muslim pretends to have no understanding of their ways? Unless of course its an act. His heart is not with the American people, so how can we expect him to protect us? His heart is not with Israel and won’t protect them either. What is his job then if not to protect us? Hasn’t he failed miserably? If we knew the half of it, the booz and the parties with no one watching, no one at the wheel, we would RUN to vote, and not just treat the chance to at least fix certain things, as meaningless. Don’t believe the lie. We can change things by our vote AND by our prayers. Faith without works is dead. We have to vote AND pray.

    I’m so disgusted with the whole system I don’t know what to do. Take a look at what Joseph Smith’s hypocephalus says:
    I am Djabty in the House of the Ben Ben in Heliopolis, so exalted and glorious. [I am] a copulating bull without equal. [I am] that Mighty God in the House of the BenBen in Heliopolis… that Mighty God…May the Osiris Shishaq live forever, with that Mighty God in Heliopolis.

    That’s just a portion: it’s apparant that mormonism is all part of the mystery religion that seeks to rip salvation from well intentioned lost sheep. For Romney to be high up within the church he must know the origins of the church.

    I just found a video of Cathy O’brien speaking about George Romney and his interest in mind control, mk ultra. 3:27 mark:
    remove quotes: “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2RqJeirvws&feature=relmfu” I don’t know what to think of that.

    • Look, wasn’t Reagan a good President? Wasn’t his wife Nancy holding seances at the white house at the same time, and consulting astologers? He didn’t stop her, to my knowledge, but didn’t he do a good job as President anyway? Didn’t he keep us safe? Who can better do this job of protecting the American public?Romney or Obama? Maybe look at it that way.
      Besides, look into Obama. Isn’t his uncle or some relative a witch doctor that he wrote about in his book? Don’t the witches campaign and have come out for Obama? Didn’t they say they believe his sucess is a result of casting spells? Look into his familys backround and his Mothers backround.

    Mr Marzulli. How low can they get you to go, who can they get you to vote for because “the other guy is even worse”? Would you vote for a rapist, because the other guy is a murderer?
    Sorry, my values and beliefs are not RELATIVE, they’re ABSOLUTE. I won’t vote fr someone who endorses NDAA, Gun Grabbing, The Federal Reserve, etc, etc. etc. just because the other guy is worse. You should know better. You were “going to vote for Ron Paul?” Than vote for Gary Johnson, or DON’T VOTE. To take part in the deception, is to condone it. i can’t stomach this “lesser of two evils” argument. It’s pathetic. Sorry….

    • Scenario:
      YOU have to choose one of two men to guard your family while called out on an emergency. The ONLY two choices you have is an unrepentant murderer and a rehabilitated murderer. Who will you choose? Will you leave that choice to someone else to make for you? Is there a difference, a “lesser of two evils” in the choice set before you? How important is your family? Your country?

    • Brandi said

      I have made the argument to my family as well, “I won’t vote for Mao, just to get rid of Hitler.” kinda similar to your rapist/murderer argument.

      But L.A. Marzulli has a right to his own opinion, and he makes some really good points. We should be willing to think about what he has to say. We don’t have to do what he does, but knowing where his heart is on this issue should lead us to talk about it with respect. He really wants to do the right thing for the country and Israel. I also really liked Kirk’s comment about how God even uses evil rulers.

      I am still trying to decide what to do. I am really sick of the Republicans thinking they can count on my vote no matter what. I was thinking of writing in Ron Paul. Especially since I live in California, which has no shot of going to Romney. If I lived in a different state I might consider voting for Romney, for the reasons that L.A. mentions. He makes a good argument.

      I thought about voting for Gary Johnson, just to not vote “illuminati”–but I can’t support who he is. He is not Ron Paul. He may support Ron Paul, but as a Christian I would be voting for sinful things.

      So, I don’t know. I think overall, this thread was wonderful. I really thought a lot about what I am going to do. I will be wearing my Ron Paul shirt all day : ) and I will probably write Ron Paul in on the ballot. I am not voting for Obama at all, I just know that every year I have voted, my candidate has never won my state. And Obama is a celebrity here in Ca. My vote for Romney won’t count. And it will only make the republican party think they can make us vote for their lousy candidates.

      But, I won’t vote for Gary Johnson.

    • ascetic43 said

      It’s not an even analogue, Romney isn’t “repentant”…. Listen. I’m a philosophy student, you’re not “teaching” me anything. It’s relative morality. Period. I expect this from the secular humanists, but Christians should know better….

    • ascetic43 said

      I’m glad, at least, that it’s causing people to think. And, I do still respect LA (I’ll get over it) I’m just really disappointed right now. Sorry if I’m being abrasive, but I see Romney as exactly the same as Obama (his policies are identical beneath the fake Christian rhetoric; I believe Romney is as “Christian” as Obama….btw) it’s just really disappointing. It’s as incomprehensible to me as if he’d endorsed Obama….

      That is a 100% godly man…then I’d cast my vote his way!

      So….like I said in my posts earlier…I AM VOTING AGAINST O’Bummer !!!

      NOT that I “want to CHOOSE” ROMNEY….but he is the ONLY other option.

      IF you can get 60% of the country to vote for ME….

    • @ Asct,
      My “scenario” wasn’t specifically about Obama and Romney but to show you that sometimes there can be vast differences between two evils, and we might not want to leave that choice to another to make for us.

      On another note, I’m so glad this video surfaced that the left will use against Romney,never realising that the very same video reveals Romney’s heart towards Israel and a true understanding of the Palestinian situation. What the devil meant for bad, God is using for good, if Christians will receive it. He didn’t know this would get out ,so he was speaking from his heart. I think God was trying to get the messgae to us, that Romney “gets it”, like LA says.

  24. LA, are you aware of “mormon israelism?”

    “http://www.lds.org/ensign/1991/01/of-the-house-of-israel?lang=eng”

    This is a quote:
    From what the prophets have said, then, most members of the [LDS] Church come from Gentile nations, but they have some Israelite ancestors in their lineage. Therefore, they are not “assigned to” or “adopted into” the house of Israel. They are legal heirs of the covenant, and the lineage proclaimed in their patriarchal blessings identifies the blood line that ties them back to Abraham.

    Let’s put this political discussion in context with the big picture.

    As Christians and followers of prophecy, do we believe that we have crossed the threshold to the end of days or don’t we? If we genuinely believe we are witnessing the seals in preparation to being opened and feeling those birth pangs, then be it Obama or Romney, we are headed down that road.

    My write in candidate will be Yeshua. He is my king.

  26. ascetic43 said

    “Hopeful watcher”

    You actually cut right to the over-all concern I have about the possibly compromised perspective that I suspect some Christians are susceptible to. “End Times skew”. It’s wanting prophecy to be fulfilled so badly (if understandably), that it compromises and colors socio-political perspective with expectation.

    Are we in End Times? Certainly feels like it sometimes; and I understand wanting to make sense of it biblically, but that shouldn’t over-rule common sense. I don’t want to get into the whole supporting the Iran strike thing, because that’s a giant can of worms. But you see my point? We’ve all witnessed it in some form.

    My perspective is that want for fulfillment should never over-rule established biblical moral belief. In other words, we shouldn’t support a “preemptive strike” (…unprovoked attack) on Iran because it’s illegal, immoral, etc, -just because it might mirror what scripture says about end times.

    Anyone that can (respectfully) counter-argue that, I’d like to (respectfully) counter-counter-argue back… ;)

    • hopeful_watcher said

      We live out our days the best we can in a way that glorifies God. This is what dictates my actions. Discerning His will in my life and obediently following.

      It is not dictated by trying to “steer” circumstances to assure an inevitable outcome. If it is inevitable, as prophecy is, then its irrelevant what I do. That’s my point.

      If prophecy will play out, which will happen without a doubt, then its all meaningless, to quote a wise Soleman from

    • hopeful_watcher said

      … from Ezekial.

      BTW, even Paul said that the return of Jesus was imminent. If it was imminent then, than where are we now?

      I want to be clear. I do not like Obama one bit. If we and our nation are living righteously in God’s eyes then we are under His protection. If only that were true. We have turned away from God. Prayer and repentence are where we are at. God will doesn’t care who you vote for. He cares that we get on our knees and repent.

    • hopeful_watcher said

      Ecclesiastes I mean, not Ezekiel. My brain is tired.

    • If we repent and pray, God will open Christians eyes and they will run to the ballot box in droves, making a huge difference in the outcome and we will get Romney and maybe even at the end, a converted Romney(Who knows what God will do in answer to prayer?). But if we carry on business as usual, watch TV instead of vote, and ignore whats happening to our country,leave the mess for others to fix, and keep living in sin, forget to pray,etc, we get Obama. And folks, by the end of his reign, that is, if it EVER ends, that will be the end of America and religious freedom, as we know it.

    What has happened @ this blog recently? I try to discern by tone, not by the face value of words. I’m trying to test the spirits here, but this is what I keep sensing – a lot of negativity.

    Certain people say they’re not coming back, but they do, especially right after people say they wish they WOULD stay away. Others say they’re sad @ what attitudes they’re picking up on & then they seem to stop posting.

    Is it my imagination, or have we suddenly lost a lot of people who used to post on a regular basis. Even though I just started coming here 3 months ago, I don’t recall noticing any mean-spiritedness until just recently.

    I sampled some older archives for comparison. I would have more to say, but I’m just feeling discouraged here right now. God bless you all.
    L.A., thanks again for all you do.

      I’ve noticed it, too, and I don’t think it’s an accident. In recent months we’ve seen right here on this blog (and I’ve watched it with other ministries) the attacks ramp up and come in a number of different forms.

      I think even I got nipped a little bit here today. My tone probably could have stood to be better in some of the posts I wrote. Looking over it tonight, some of my posts look quite a bit more argumentative than I wanted them to be. :(

      Let’s remember to keep our teachers like L.A. and others in prayer because they’re on the front lines taking hits. We have to stay vigilant ourselves, too. It’s all too easy to get distracted by what’s going on around us. We need to strive to keep our eye on the prize, so to speak.

      Dear Amaezed~
      I’ve been reading and commenting on this blog since 2007 (different screen name in past though.) This year I’m more into the reading since I too have noticed a spirit of dissension running rampant here. Anyway, I understand discouragement as I’ve felt it in many aspects of life just by living it. And most especially as believers and members of the Christian walk of Faith we will necessarily experience plenty of it. Jesus said so. He was right then. Still is. So please just know it…. and grow :^)
      Dear Everyone Concerned~
      What I find very interesting is that these so-called internet/blog “trolls” have been making an intensified campaign on L.A.’s blog in the last two or three months. Something I noticed not long after I read a couple of articles posted on one of the various “discernment ministry” websites; which in turn linked to a few more websites and blogs. Kinda like a cascading, domino effect.Those articles coincided with the close of the 2012 Branson Prophecy Summit. Several articles, remarks and comments were leveled at L.A.’s teachings ((as well as several other Christian speakers at that venue.)) Coincidence? Umm…probably not. Other Christians with their own “managed agendas and doctrines” out trolling other waters. At any rate, what I read elsewhere really shocked me. Just wanted to share it with you all.
      Peace in His Glorious Name to all,

      Many people on this blog don’t even believe in “speaking in tongues”,

      Why aren’t regulars blogging ? The blog is being or has been taken over by Trolls. References to disappointment with L.A. Should Israel strike first. Who US citizens should vote for. Constant harping by some on the same themes………..please just don’t feed the trolls, some of whom probably have multiple names.

    Frankly, L.A., you back whomever you want, ultimately God allows what will be. I just don’t think my vote one way or the other will make a significant difference. May He be glorified with whatever the outcome of the pony show is, and may there be peace in Jerusalem for Israel’s sake. For me, I just know what I get with the current administration and that is the only difference.

    If anyone can, will you please lift my dad and my family up in prayer. My mother died Saturday at 11:30. Also, does anyone know how to explain to a seven year old that her grandma is in heaven, and what heaven is like? Where can I find some good scripture. All that is very descriptive appears to be the description of new Jerusalem, b/c I don’t want to be making anything up. Thank you.

    My minds a little bit hazy with grief and exhaustion.

    L.A. thank you for opening this forum back up. I needed this b/c this is the only place I can come and feel that this is a church family.

    Peace

    • Oh my dear Dilateurmind,
      I am so very sorry for your loss. I was wondering how you were. I wanted the out come to be so different for you, but Gods will be done. Yes, I will pray for your Dad that the Lord comfort him, its a great loss for him to have to handle. Look on you tube for Mary K Baxter. She has been to Heaven and when she talks about it, it just comes alive, and makes you want to go there. A child will pick up on her spirit right away, that what shes saying is real. I’ll be lifting you up also, Dilateurmind, that God’s peace be upon you. You’ve been through a lot. May the Lord Jesus Christ, wrap His arms around you and your Dad and hold you both close to Him, and give you both much needed rest. I pray He will comfort your hearts and cover you with His peace.I ask in Jesus Name, Amen

      Like a family, people are naturally going to have different opinions! I think the thing is to be respectful of the fact that not all people are on the same page at the same time,and what is said now might not mean much,but down the line,it might ring a bell,so to speak.

      That being said,…

      I’m sorry,D. for the loss of your mom. My own mom died last year, and though I miss her,I am happy knowing she is spared what is to come on this earth in the future.

      I pray your dad and the rest of your family take comfort in memories of good times together and in having nothing left unsaid that needed said. (I pray that is the case.)

      As for thoughts on heaven, I have no help in that regard. I would probably tell a child, or anyone else, that that person is sleeping, and when Jesus returns they’ll awaken to a great big loud TRUMP of a wake-up call! (That’s my understanding,anyway.) Don’t know if that fits your views or not. I’m sure you’ll find the words you need.

      I’m sorry to hear about you mom. I don’t think it will be long now, and you’ll see her again.

      Ps 30:5
      Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning.

      Until then, our hearts go out to you.

      Dialate-have sent prayers up for all you guys! My daughters were 3 years old and one was still an infant when my husband committed suicide. Very difficult to explain to a young child. Just tell her how much her grandma loved her and how much she meant to grandma. And how now she doesnt hurt anymore ir be sad because she is with Jesus, who is the most beautiful wonderful awesome thing. And that he will take care of her until they are together again. That he will take care of her too. Or whatever you biblically believe.
      Peace be with you!

      My heart goes out to you, your father, the 7 year child and your entire family.

      I have two passages that may help, the first one is for you and your dad.

      A blessing directly from Jesus. He wept for Lazurus and sympathises with our grief:
      Matthew 5:4
      Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted!

      This one for the child. Here is how Jesus responds to those who believe in him.
      Luke 23
      42 And he was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!” 43 And He said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”

    hhmm the lesser of 2 evils is still evil… hitler or stalin… satan or a demon… both evil both ungodly.
    A vote for the lesser of 2 evils means you give your voice TO evil.. you have sinned ya dont get to blow it off to the politican and say he has sinned and you are blamless.

    When I very 1st heard who would be running against Obama my instant reflex was to write in Jesus Christ. Voting for Obama is a non-option & voting for Romney is unsettling. If Romney gets in I wonder how that will affect our nation on a spiritual level. The Mormons will get a boost in thinking the “White Horse Prophecy” is being fulfilled though Romney. Also, how do UFO’s & Mormonism diverge together? There’s something going on there too. If he’s sincere in supporting Israel that’s a plus but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to vote for him w/o regretting it. All the while we watch our Country being dismantled so we are leveled out on a global scale w/our former wealth forcefully “redistributed”.

    “Both hands are skilled in doing evil; the ruler demands gifts, the judge accepts bribes, the powerful dictate what they desire–they all conspire together.” (Micah 7:3)

    • Late Night Lisa said

      I’m not promoting this but just look up “Vote for Jesus” & a whole bunch of links come up. Obviously, I’m not the only one so hopelessly disgusted that I’d consider it. Vote for Jesus 2012 “http://www.votingforjesus.com/”

    • Debra said

      Kinda makes me chuckle and smile Lisa. But I seriously wonder what social meme can be birthed and nurtured by this particular idea?!?! ((if you catch my drift…))

    Here is my logic on the American vote.. If all christians opped out then the heathens get what they deserve! Seriously though; you do not even have to vote. Here in Australia if you don’t you are penalized with a fine.. when all is said and done you all have to follow your conscience in the light of The Spirit it may mean no vote!

    blessings

    • hopeful_watcher said

      Great advise. I never considered that NOT voting a privilege until I learned that you get fined in Australia if you don’t.

      I get that not voting is the “irresponsible” thing to do and some might get angry at the futility of writing in Jesus like I am throwing my vote away and handing our nation over to evil. But I am struck by how much of our faith we put into our leaders and less and less on God.

      Psalm 146:3-6 Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save. When their spirit departs, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans come to nothing. Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God, the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them–the LORD, who remains faithful forever.

      How the Lord views worldly leaders:
      1 Samuel 8:17 He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. 18 When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, but the LORD will not answer you in that day.”

    • hopeful_watcher said

      I don’t believe anyone has mentioned this and if they have, then my apologies.

      We consider the act of using our mind and choosing our leader to be such an important act of self determination. Has anyone here considered reliquishing that control, praying to God about who to vote for and then obediently following the Holy Spirit to make that choice? Is this not the proper thing to do?

  33. Yes, Hopeful-watcher, I HAVE relinquished my will to God’s concerning this election, and I hope many other readers here have done so. I would prefer it if He stepped in and changed the slate of candidates, but it’s up to Him. Peggy Noonan wrote a blog in the Wall St. Journal today about how an “intervention” is needed in the Republican Party, to emphasize that the people out here are individuals, not just “47% who won’t vote for me because they want to live off the government.” Mitt needs to wake up. Or someone else needs to shake us loose from this way of thinking about people.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
