Iraq – Watch Out For The Strong Man

Commentary & Analysis


L. A. Marzulli

Baghdad under al Qaeda assault

The Iraqi capital was rocked late Tuesday, Nov. 2 by the most ferocious assault al Qaeda has ever carried out on a capital city. By evening, it had spread to Baghdad’s environs after the death toll had climbed past 120 with more than 300 injured from 19 bomb car explosions in a dozen Shiite suburbs. Rapid fire explosions, involving booby-trapped cars, roadside bombs, mortar strikes leave 200 wounded in mostly Shiite neighborhoods.

It has been seven years since the US and coalition forces went into Baghdad. Thousands of lives were lost and the Iraqi people were liberated from the tyrant Saddam Hussein. We were told, several months ago, that the Iraq war was over and that the Iraqi people had won a decisive victory for democracy and freedom in the Middle East. However, it would seem that there is just one little factor that keeps cropping up and blowing – no pun intended – the progress that the Iraqi’s have made, to smithereens, literally.

The recent synchronized bombings that took place in the Iraqi capital says it all. The deep-rooted hatred between Sunni and Shia Muslim, that has been going on ever since the death of Mohammed, continues unabated. This latest attack, in a long line of massacres, should be a warning that the political landscape, in Iraq, is as tenuous as ever. What are the Iraqi’s to do? There are check points all over the city and yet the violence continues.

Enter the Strongman, the Hashemite King, the direct descendant of the prophet Mohammed, King Abdullah II, of Jordan. The time is ripe for him to step onto the world stage. I’ve been waiting for this ever since our invasion of Iraq. I have posted about this before and do so again now because it would appear that the Iraqi’s might be ready to embrace the Strongman. The people in Iraq wonder why there government is powerless to stop the carnage. The Malaki regime is enervated and without the propping up by the US, it would fold like a house of cards in a wind storm.

The King is the answer. Heck, he’s right next door! Remember too, that his uncle once was king of Iraq, so the memory a Hashemite monarchy is still somewhat fresh in the minds of the Iraqi’s. The stage is set for him to come riding in on his white horse and establish peace and safety in Iraq. Because he is a direct descendant of Mohammed, he garners the respect of both Sunni and Shia Moslem.

I believe he will make his new capital in the ancient city of Babylon. He will use the billions of petro dollars that are at his disposal and resurrect that ancient city. Then, he will solve the 60-year-old conundrum in the Middle East, by giving part of Jordan to the Palestinians for their homeland.

Keep your eye on the Temple mount in Jerusalem, because Abdullah is the only person in the world who controls the Temple Mount. Everything that goes on there is under his jurisdiction. Third Temple soon?

This recent bomb blast shows us that Iraq is as unstable as ever. Nothing has changed and I for one am angry when I think of the blood that has been spilled there. There is no peace in Iraq. They await the strongman and when he comes he will honor a god of fortresses….

  1. Just a quick question. If there is an EMP attack
    how long do the affects last. Is it all permanent
    or do things come back on after weeks or months

    • All electronic systems would have to be rebuilt in a world where nothing works. Even if you have a car that is preelectronic and will run, gas pumps won’t work for an example.

      Trucks and trains would not be able to haul goods, primarily food.

      Bicycles and horses would be in great demand.

      All electronic data would be gone from everything that wasn’t hardened.

      Restructuring from the bottom up would take a long, long time.

      We have trapped ourselves with our own genius.

  2. Hi LA:

    In reference to the info on the Hashemite King, Abdullah, are you saying what I think you are saying…do you think he is the AC? I know you mentioned this info before, but it really seemed to hit home this time. Very interesting. Amen!

  3. Very interesting post L.A.,

    King Abdullah does have european ancestry from his mother’s side; he controls the Temple Mount; he is shown courtesy by both Jews and Arabs. Hmmmm…. It is not far-fetched to think that he may be a candidate for AC.

    • TNX, for the info. I figured someone here probably already checked him out. In the vid the lady he interviews (Victim of mind control) has some wild stories to tell. I was suspecting those were truth mixed w/lies too. She looks “Zoned” when speaking.

    • Hi LNL,

      From what I have seen from Icke, he mixes in SOME Truth with a gargantuan amount of new age/occult beliefs. My best advice; though he has interesting theories and ideas…stay away from him…far away from him. There is to much danger and risk involved.

      That is my humble opinion.

      In Christ,

      Jeff D

    • What brother Jeff D says about Mr. Icke… ’tis true. I actually read two of his books before I saw through his carefully worded little truths. He also has strong bias against the Jews (although he claims he really is anti-Zionist Jew… that the Zionist Jews make other Jews look bad.) Along with the likes of Eric Jon Phelps (a white supremacist) and Jeff Rense. We love you LNL. Tread carefully in their territories.
      Yahweh bless,

    • Project Camelot interviews Icke at length and he tells his story of how and why he left his field of broadcasting and started these kind of investigations. This interview is on YouTube. When you hear his “testimony,” you will know that his inspiration is demonic. I feel badly for him, though. He very sincerely believes what he is saying and believes he is being led by a divine being. He is also a very intelligent man whose discoveries are relevant, but not interpreted Biblically.

    • Hi Rose & LNL,
      Icke came to PHX last Oct (2009) & I went to see him. I did some research before he did come & what I found was disturbing, ie: the anti-Christian & anti-Semite viewpoints he is so adamant about.

      The ONLY reason I went to see him was an “Intel-gathering project” for myself personally on his NWO Intel & info. I have been born again for almost 2 decades, and certainly prayed without ceasing (1 THES 5:17) before I actually stepped into the Theatre he spoke at.

      I knew I was entering
      “enemy territory”. And, by the Grace of our Precious LORD & SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST :-), my mind, heart & soul are so deeply embedded in The GOSPEL I wouldn’t have gone for I have been born again for almost 2 decades and my roots are planted & growing very deep in the good soil. Mark 4:8 🙂

      Also LNL, I don’t know you very well yet, so I don’t know where you are in your relationship in CHRIST JESUS (ie: new-born babe or very mature). If you are newly born again & haven’t thouroughly studied SCRIPTURE, then, as Jeff mentioned above, stay away, very far away from Icke, because of his “reptilian blood-line & anti-Christian beliefs”.

      Icke professes to be his own, “is, was, and future sentient human who is not afraid to die because he alone is in control of his own eternal destiny”.

      My prayers from day one of my newly born again nature has been, and still is, for wisdom & discernment in my daily walk as well as when I study & read SCRIPTURE.

      GOD BLESS you, sister 🙂

      your brother in JESUS CHRIST,
      JOHN 14:6 🙂

  4. My spiritual speculation 🙂 tells me that not only is the Muslim religion hand crafted by Satan, but also the ongoing debate between Sunni and Shia Muslim sects. From my understanding, the main bugaboo between the two sects is that the Shia believe the 12th Imam will be a direct descendent of Mohammad and the Sunni believe that this is not necessarily so. So if the Catholic Pope (obviously not a descendent of Mohammad) is assassinated by Shia extremists and then he returns in Damascus with a man who calls himself Jesus (thus proving to be the Mahdi or 12th Imam), then the Sunni moderate view will win the day. In other words, extremism would be the catalyst for change and moderation is the unifier of those who are tired of extremism. Others who have read my stuff on this blog know why it is that I hold this view of the connection between the Catholic pope and the Muslim end times beliefs. I believe they are intertwined to create a watered down one world religion of tolerance.

  5. LOL, and perhaps this King is also a candidate for this 12th Imam/AC, which would mean the Shia view point wins the day. I think Satan likes to cover his bases.

    • I just wish some of these Christian authors would/could put out free literature to people to help th find the truth.

      The raelians (some of our competition so to speak) give away free books etc.

    • Joe.b

      The raeliens work for Satan they can afford it.The true christians are limited because in truth there are not many of us.We are called the little flock for a reason,I do try and make copies and give them away.And LA has given many things away for free.This video is top notch and should cost alot more than what he is asking for it,I thank him for making it affordable.

  6. Yeah and because of who he is which is a direct discendant of Mohamed,he has control over the temple mount,doesn’t he?

  7. I dont doubt the possiblity of what you propose above.

    My question is why didnt King Abdullah II do it with the help of the United States before a parliament was created in Iraq? Why now? He could of started a govenment from scratch? He would have had the full endorsement of the US. Jordan is an ally. He also would have had the full protection of the United States military. He could have united the shiites and sunnis and the kurds when the government was first toppled. Why now?

    • Remember, despite circumstantial evidence this is all speculation. There are other candidates who could just as easily fit the bill. But even if King Abdullah is fated to be the antichrist, he is still subject to God’s timetable.

  8. The closer Brother Lynn gets to what could be absolute Truth regarding these end times scenarios, the sooner this site will get shut down. I personally believe it is only a matter of time because of excellent posts like he has made today.

    Brother Lynn could be way off base on this, only time will tell. However, if he is correct and being led by the Lord to reveal what He already knows is going to happen, then we should be giving him all the more prayer covering.

    IF he is right on this one, Satan is going to seek to take him out quickly, before any more can be educated on what is truly happening in our physical world. Brother Lynn is a true Watchman and as so, God has given him the great gifts of discernment and prophecy. I have no doubt the Govt. is waiting for the appropriate time to flip the switch on this site as ordered by our Adversary and take him off the grid permanently so he can no longer go viral with breaking news that would instantly shed light on what the Enemy is doing, how he is doing it and what the next move likely would be.

    Let us please keep Brother Lynn at the top of our prayer lists. It is truly posts like this one today that keeps him a bulls eye on the Enemy’s hit list. Not to mention the Truth he constantly sheds as he rips away the facade of what UFOs truly are and who is behind them and why. Let us pray for this Watchman and lead as many as we can to this BLOG.

    God bless and cover you all in these Last Days. Prepare to live for death is coming soon.

    In Christ,

    Jeff D

  9. LA & Richard, I like what both of you are stating, however:
    To your specific Q, Richard, only the TRIUNE GODHEAD is Omniscient – Satan is not. The Antichrist (Satan indwelt in a man REV 11:7) cannot hit the scene until a 7-year peace agreement is cut between Israel and the Muslim Arab’s (Palestinians) DAN 9:27, i.e.: the prophet Daniel’s 70th week. And Richard, since you & I are both Pre-Tribulation believing saints, then you know that the church must be Raptured (2 THES 4:17 – the work “caught up” in Latin is “rapapair”; in Greek, Strong’s # 726 is “harpazo”) prior to the revealing of the Antichrist and the 7-Year Peace Deal (Daniel’s 70th week DAN 9:27) & 2 THES 2:7, 8
    Moreover, the apostasy (Greek word in Strong’s #646 is “apostasia”) must occur before the 7-year Peace Agreement is cut. I believe that we are going through the apostasy now (i.e.: the Vatican’s stand on Reformed Theology being so, so wrong {GEN 12:3; GEN 15: 18-21}), but I believe that the true remnant will have a pretty good idea who the Antichrist might be prior to Rapture.
    I hasten to state that the SCRIPTURE verses that I quote, and the statements that I make, I do not take lightly. The LORD places even more accountability on me to HIM when it comes to judgment – The Bema Judgment. 2 COR 5:10, 13
    I personally have not budged on the Babylon issue since I became a born again Christian almost 2 decades ago – “Babylon” as described in The Revelation of Jesus Christ, Chapter 18 is Babylon!
    I certainly will duck after I submit this because I will catch alot of flack, but as we are seeing before our very eyes (Such as the catholic cult now prescribing itself to reformed theology so that it can assure itself a position in the NWO & the NWO religion), each day brings this world one step closer to SCRIPTURE becoming very well self-apparent. Many, many, many people have stated over the years that the “Babylon” in REV. 18 is New York City ala Manhattan.
    I read the BIBLE Literally and to me, it is very apparent when it is appropriate that Scripture does have allegorical verses (REV 1:20, where Jesus indicates that the allegorical “seven lampstands” are the seven churches).
    Also, agree with both you LA and Richard regarding the Jordanian King’s role in this. I am keeping a VERY close eye on King Hussein II – however it is his uncle, Prince Hassan Bin Talal:
    Who is in first position to take the reign as Iraq’s next king, AND POTENTIALLY the role of the Strongman, as LA points out. One must look at his resume to see how intertwined the prince is with Christianity, Islam and Judaism.
    Events are certainly ramping up and moving at a very accelerated pace.
    Moreover, the USAF has the world’s LARGEST airport (civilian and military) that Bush had built shortly after the invasion. You can clearly see it with Google Earth. In addition, look at the Eastern Bank of the Euphrates (opposite of the USAF base) and you can see what the Petrodollars have been up to 🙂

  10. “Will there be a Second Chance?”

    “…I would imagine the answer to this question should be fairly obvious by now but let’s look at it anyway. Those who teach the secret rapture claim that during the tribulation those not raptured will be given another chance to be saved. Let it be categorically stated that absolutely nowhere does Scripture speak of any second chance, nor does the Bible anywhere speak of people being saved after Jesus comes. This is just another manmade doctrine that is indeed pleasing to the carnal heart of man and the devils intention to have those who would wait perish with Christ’s coming. The Bible in fact actually teaches the opposite. Notice these clear Scriptures;…”(see the link)

    This was my last point so far on the page about Mr.Ortiz and thoughts pertaining to the PreTrib rapture.

    Suddenly it is a 404 Page Error.

    To restate the obvious,isn’t this an even more egregious point concerning the PreTrib rapture theory,other than just believers thinking they have a “Get Out of Tribulation Free” cards?

    Surely there are those who are not yet saved,thinking they’ll just wait and see,and maybe after the “rapture” if all these Christians are correct,then maybe they’ll think about turning to the Lord….???

    Our message should be “Get right with God right now””

    We may not know the exact time,but we must not pretend the Bible says something it does not.

    I hope that page comes back up,but in the meantime,I didn’t want this aspect to be overlooked.

    Are you sure you’re doing all you can to reach others for Christ if in the back of your mind you think they’ll have a second chance after you’re “raptured”?

    • There is a wrong interpretation on the link of the Daniel 8 prophecy. Daniel 8 vision is of Greece defeating Medo-Persia. Or replacing the 2nd beast with the 3rd. That happened in 333BC when Alexander the great defeated Darius III in the battle of Issus. When you count 2300 years to that date you get to the six day war in 1967AD when Israel conquered the temple mount.

  11. Sandie Absolutely! But at the same time we should be looking for His coming now…. as he warns in the Word, “watch ye therefore…

    We shouldn’t be letting people think that they have 3.5 or 7 years to get right with God either and let them be watching for the Antichrist instead of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    • Believe me,I’m doing all I can to repent of everything and obey the Lord and tell others about receiving Christ like never before!

      Even without the Lord’s return,our number could come up any day and we have no time to waste!

      If He was to return today,I’d want to think I had done all I could do to please Him,and I know everyone here feels the same about that.

      This is one reason I shout out about the rapture as being a lie,it’s that false message of second chances I find very disturbing.

    • So if it’s still on schedule,I wonder why that page was cancelled.

      Did someone think there was too much “divisiveness” going on?

    • I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have said that.

      Kinda frustrating though,in the middle of a serious conversation.

  12. Here are some comforting words;

    Our God shall come, and shall not keep silent; a fire shall devour before Him,
    and and it shall be very tempestuous all around Him.
    He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth,
    that he may judge His people.
    ‘Gather my saints Together to me, those who have made a covenant with me by sacrifice’
    Let the heavens declare His righteousness, for god himself is Judge. Psalm50:3-6

    John b

  13. So,anyway,where is that scripture that says after the “rapture” that the rest of the people get a second chance?

    If that’s in the gospels,I’d like to know of it.

  14. Something of importance I would like to continue to share. Here is the latest of Jessica. Again, I thank those of you in advance who are praying for her.

    “The news from today is pretty much unchanged. Jessica is still eating small amounts and is able to keep the food down, and that’s good. But she’s still in denial about her disease and can’t wait to get out of there so is trying to comply in order to make that happen. The only new development today is that her doctors are putting her on a new medication in hopes that it will help her be more focused and coherent when she talks. Pray that the Lord will heal the underlying emotional and psychological causes as well as the obvious physical healing she so desperately needs. Her self-image and self-esteem need a special touch from the Lord, and she needs to see herself through God’s eyes and be delivered of buying into this lie of the devil that has had her so trapped.”

    In Christ,

    Jeff D

    • That’s pretty lame,Gordy.

      I’ve never said anything about Ellen White. I don’t belong to any church.

      All throughout the New Testament it’s said,basically,”If you love me,keep my commandments.” I could give you more than enough to prove what I’m saying,and the last I knew,there were still 10 of them.

      It’s not about keeping the commandments to have salvation,it’s how,through faith,by grace,we should want to keep those commandments.

      Or should we just alter the rest of them a little bit,too?

    • Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Amen.

    • Confessions of a Recovering Legalist
      by Steve Reynolds

      Legalists often place a high premium on commandment keeping and obedience.1 They are extremely zealous for God’s law. The standard that they bear is the Ten Commandments, and they are diligent to point out every misstep in the lives of people they come in contact with. They can also be very diligent in pointing out their own missteps as well. As a result, they can carry around an extraordinary amount of self-imposed guilt. I know. I am a recovering legalist. – cont.

  15. I would be very suspicious of the medication the doctor is putting her on. Maybe she doesn’t feel like talking a whole lot right now!

    As long as her electrolites are in balance,that’s the mosst important thing,and that they don’t try to force-feed her alot at once.

    How old is she? I know you must have mentioned it before,but I forget.

    • Sandie, I assume you are asking this question to me. Jessica is 14.

      For those who are just now hearing of this, here is the original post:

      “I have a friend with a most urgent prayer need tonight. I’ve posted it on Facebook, sent it to my prayer partners, and wanted to alert you to this need before going to bed.

      My friends, Sheila and Jeff, (precious Christians), have a beautiful 14 y/o daughter, Jessica, who is in Children’s Hospital on suicide watch in the eating disorders wing. Her blood chemistry is dangerously out of balance and she’s been near death. In this condition she escaped from Children’s and was alone, hospital gown, no money, no id, and according to the doctors was very near death wandering the streets near Parkland Hospital and the Dallas Market Center…at night! She was gone for almost 4 hours before they found her and got her back to the hospital. She is in critical condition, has lost 60 pounds, weighs only 100# now and is probably 5’8″ and should weigh 140. Her bulimia has ruined her teeth, her hair is falling out in clumps, and she has dark circles around her eyes. She was a gorgeous girl. Now she looks almost like those last pictures of Karen Carpenter. There are 2 critical prayer needs, first of course for her complete and total healing. Next, insurance issues. Her insurance coverage is about to end and the insurance company is insisting she be dismissed later this week. We need a miracle here!

      I’m telling you all of this so that you’ll understand the severity of the problem. Just to pray for Jessica, in critical condition and on suicide watch at Children’s Hospital with eating disorders. And to pray for favor with the hospital and with the insurance company that she can stay and get the help she needs. We need a miracle and I know of no other way to get it but to gather God’s people to pray.

      Pray for her parents too. They have been through the fire with Jessica and they need a healing touch from God too. Also the little brother, 10 y/o and now forced to be by himself far too much.”

      In Christ,

      Jeff D

    • Jeff; she is very much in my prayers as well as every prayer group I know of. My niece went through very similar circumstances several years ago. God bless, she came through it all and is doing well now though it may be a life long struggle for her. Just wanted to let you know that these can work out through the glory of God. Randy

    • Thank you Randy. May you be blessed for your great words of exhortation this day. I am glad to know your niece is doing well now. With the Lord, there is always Hope.

      In Christ,


  16. Thanks,Jeff.

    She is in my prayers.

    I can’t bring myself to share much more than this,…without a miracle,she is gonna have one heck of a time winning this battle.

    • Yes, I am praying the Lord will fight this battle for her as she has neither the strength nor desire to do so on her own…yet.

      I have faith that with the hundreds of prayer warriors on this, she will get a glimpse if not an HD image of just who our God and her Creator is and how much she is loved by Him.

      In Christ,

      Jeff D

    • Jeff D, I will pray for Jessica.

      I would also like to share this link with you. In my search of the meaning behind all this suffering that is in the world I have found a site called There is a collection of sermons and studies on it on various christian topics.

      The description on this particular link on which there are two sermons is: “I play two fascinating clips that I feel like answer the questions about Christian suffering. Some of the best info I have heard on the subject.”

      Here is the link:

      God bless you,


  17. Dear L.A. Do you have any insight regarding POTUS trip to India? Taking over 3,000 people with him, 34 warships and the like. The conspiracy theorists are all over this.. Webbot also signals something Nov.5th. I have been praying so hard for weeks now to be strong and stay steady and for mercy upon the U.S., When I read these stories, something just doesn’t add up and a tinge of fearfulness ran through my entire system.
    Thank you for all you are doing to make us aware of the deceptions and the deeper workings of the demon(s). I pray you continue on your ministry of deep faith.

  18. A few areas I’d like to add for all to consider:
    The last king, most call him the antichrist is a two-fold process. There is a man who speaks proud words and blasphemies for 42 months. There is a mortal wound, and the false prophet breathes life, the greek says ‘pneuma’- a spirit into him. Apollyon is a king of the bottomless pit, he comes to torment with his horde for 5 months. I think this is the spirit that is breathed into 42 month leader. He is revived and the world wonders, ‘who is like the beast?’

    With that being said, what leader has come on the scene recently? He is the one to watch. Someone who was ‘given a mouth’ (elected) to utter proud words.

    • It’s not Obama.

      Keep an eye on President Bashar al Assad of Syria.
      NOTHING happens in the Middle East without his approval and backing.
      Lebanon is totally under his thumb. As are other countries in that region.
      Remember, greater Assyrian includes Lebanon, parts of Turkey, Syria and Iraq. Those ‘countries’ are NEW — they were not called by those names until recently!

      The AC is Assyrian – it says so in Scripture – he is identified under various names in Scripture (which shows us different characteristics of him!):

      Isaiah chapters 10, 14, 30 & 31 – where he is called The Assyrian and the King of Assyria respectively
      Isaiah 13 – he is called The King of Babylon
      Ezekiel 28 – he is called The Prince of Tyre (Tyre is in Lebanon…part of Assyria)
      Ezekiel Chpts 38 & 39 – Gog [of the land of Magog] (modern day Turkey/Asia Minor – some of those people migrated to Russia, hence why Russia is often referred too when you hear ‘Gog of Magog’)
      Daniel chapters 7 & 8: The Little Horn (AC) springs up out one of the 4 horns (previous kingdom/rulers).
      Daniel 11: The Willful King of the North (Syria — some bibles correctly say Willful King of Syria!)
      2 Thessalonians chpt 2: The Lawless One, The Son of Perdition, the Man of Sin

      Here are a couple of his physical characteristics:
      Bigger (taller/stout) than his contemporaries (google his images – and look how tall he is compared to his fellows).
      Stern faced. Proud haughty look. And you can find the other physical descriptions in those Scriptures above!

      He is an AlAwhite Muslim (a very small sect – which is heavily mystical/occultic and encompasses strange stuff compared to the other sects of Islam).
      It is written that he (the AC) will worhsip a god his forefathers did not know….. investigate the AlAwhite sect of Islam.

      I found it interesting that Bashar al Assad was born on — get this — September 11th, 1965.

      There is much more…but anyone who is seriously watching and actually reading the Scriptures for themselves, instead of relying on others – will know this man is one to watch closely (along with any other serious contenders). Remember, EVERYTHING must line up with Scripture, or it’s not ‘him’.

  19. Following is a quote and references by a former legalist:

    Legalism is a Christian heresy that is as old as the church. When God devotes an entire book of the Bible to combating a certain thing you can know for sure that it was, is and will be a problem for the church. That is exactly what God did with the book of Galatians. He devoted an entire book, perhaps the most impassioned book of the Bible — to combat the heresy of legalism. I can honestly tell you that I used to read Galatians and think, “Hey, Paul, what’s the big deal? After all, isn’t it a good thing to want to keep God’s law?” Now I understand what the big deal is. Let’s not sugarcoat it. Paul called legalism “a different gospel.”2 That is serious business.

    Of course there is nothing wrong with obedience as long as one realizes the only way to live a consistently obedient lifestyle is by letting Christ live through them — not be focusing on Law.

    • Gordy, We do not serve a schizophrenic God who changes His Mind or breaks covenant.

      We are to test all things. Not ask our pastors. Or consult dead guys (church fathers). It is prophesied that in the last days people will be led by ‘pastors’ who are merely HIRELINGS, who fleece the flock. Woe to them. And woe to those who refuse to test all things – seeking Yah directly through Messiah, for answers. Jeremiah 16:19 is very true and many of us are seeing for the first time just how many lies have been sold to us by hirelings.

      Being legal in Yah’s eyes is good:). Since when did ‘legal’ become a bad word? We are definitely in the days where evil is called good and good is called evil. Yah have mercy.

      We have been sold a bag of rocks in ‘church’. Do you believe the whole bible is the inspired Word of Yah? If so, you might know that it is written that we will know the end from the beginning (Ecclesiastes). The beginning starts at Genesis – not Matthew. The NT was not even written when Yeshua was on this earth. What Scripture did Yeshua cite? The Tanach – the OT.

      Messiah is EVERYWHERE in Scripture. Grace is found everywhere in Scripture. Abraham was saved by Grace. Grace didn’t change after Yeshua came.

      He did not come to do away with the Law. He said this with His own sweet Mouth.

      He endeavoured to set the Pharisees straight because burdened the people with their Oral law – putting yokes on their necks – to control them. Traditions of elders – traditions of men!

      That is why they tried to trap Messiah into condemning the adulterous woman. He COULD NOT condemn that adulterous woman! He could not because according to TORAH (not the Talmud – the Oral law by the men!!), there must be TWO witnesses to the crime – and BOTH guilty parties must be present. That’s why Yeshua told them – “you who are without sin, cast the first stone.”

      What is sin? Transgression of the LAW.
      PAUL wrote this. I didn’t conclude this – it is WRITTEN.

      The Pharisees wanted Him to fall into their trap. He proved He was Messiah when he refused to condemn this woman without two eye witnesses AND the other guilty party (the man she slept with)! In other words, Messiah did not break Torah and condemn a woman unjustly. It’s not insignificant that He told her – ‘go and sin no more’. In other words, ‘go and do not break TORAH again – so you don’t put yourself in harm’s way again.

      Torah simply means ‘instruction’. Messiah is the WAY – He was living, breathing, walking TORAH/TheWAY/Instruction of Yah.

      You really do not understand Galatians. Or you would not be quoting it to support that we are no longer under the Law of Yah.
      The law that we are no longer under, is the curse of death (see also Deuteronomy 28 for the blessings and curses) – and of course, the oral law – traditions of the elders/Pharisees. We are also not to put ourselves under the law of men – the teachings of men – the coverings of men, etc.

      Obeying the Law of Yah is NOT about salvation. Those who don’t obey – and teach others not to obey one of the least of these laws will be the least in the Kingdom. Not my words. It’s written in the Scriptures. Yeshua said it.

      Obedience is about loving Him with our whole hearts and minds and strength. I obey Him because I love Him. I want to walk in His Way.

      Messiah said, ‘If you love me, keep my Commandments’. Why people scurry around asking ‘what commandments’? is crazy – because it’s simple. The commandments that Yeshua taught —- starting with Moses ….and others in Leviticus. Please be aware, however, that many in Leviticus are only for priests – so it’s a lie that we are ‘burdened’ with commandments that are a ‘yoke’ around our necks. So we are not each ‘burdened with 613 laws’. People need to read them for themselves and then they will begin to see!!

      Faith comes by hearing the Word of Yah.
      But guess where hearing comes from? The Word. Who is the Word? Yeshua Messiah. Living, breathing, walking Torah/Instruction. He is our example. Come to do away with the traditions of men – the mixing of man’s law with Yah’s law – the corruption!

      What I’ve learned through studying the commandments, is that Yah made them to PROTECT us. Don’t eat unclean animals. Uh – they make us sick. Just one example. If you read those commandments – and identify which ones might apply to a married male (for example) – you will see they are loving guidelines to live by. Not a burdensome yoke.

      Let’s be clear about salvation and love.
      -He first loved me.
      -Then I entered into covenant with Him (some call it ‘got saved’) when He called me.
      -Then I began to learn His Ways.
      -Then I began to obey Him as HE opened my eyes. [But first, I had to seek Him and stop listening to man. A hard step for many because we’ve been brainwashed with catch slogans and rubbish to watch out for. Just seek Yah and trust He will answer. He longs for us to seek Him and trust Him.]

      -Then He began to teach me… and He did not begin to teach me MEAT until I stopped listening to everyone around me – and only sought Him.
      – line by line, little by little. Isaiah 28 is so significant because Yah asks there, whom will He give meat too – since so many are still on the milk. Paul speaks of this as well!! We hear the same old sermons in church over and over and over – with no meat, because we are NOT grounded – not taught The Way of Messiah which – and I know you don’t want to hear this – is Torah. Please remember Torah simply means instruction. It is the guidelines of how we are to live our lives, laid out by Yah for our welfare.

      Yeshua will say to many – ‘go away I knew KNEW you’. Why? Because they did not obey Him and keep His commandments.

      The rest of the commandments HANG on the two that Christians quote as being the only two commandments we are to obey. If you love Yah with all your heart, mind, soul and strength and you love you neighbour – then you will not covet, not murder, not bear false witness, not break Sabbath, not disobey your parents, etc. Oh – you do all those, but you think Sabbath is changed or done away with? Hmmm. Nonsensical. Think about it.

      If you are under the notion that the covenants have been done away with – then please ask yourself WHY does the Rainbow still come out? That alone TESTIFIES how Yah does not change. If the Law is not good and we are not supposed to obey Yah’s Law – then why do you obey 9 commandments and not 10? Because you have been sold a bag of lies. And you did not test it before Yah.

      We cannot pick and choose.
      You have NOTHING of any value to lose by seeking Yah to know if what i testify is true or not.

      p.s there are 12 gates into the Kingdom with 12 names on them. And none of those names will be Baptist, Pentecostal, Methodist, etc. So, who is your covering brother? If you claim some denomination – it’s the same that the apostles were warning about when they called people out on saying they were ‘of Appollos’, or ‘of Barnabas’, etc… remember, denominations are divisions. There is NO division in the Body of Messiah. NONE. Denominations are anathema to His Body.

    • p.s.

      I find it interesting that:

      Christians accept Messiah as Saviour. But deny Torah – obeying Abba.

      Observant Jews (Judah) obey Torah, but deny Yeshua as Messiah.

      Muslims accept Yeshua as a Prophet while denying He is Messiah. They keep many things that line up with Torah – but some things are corrupt. In fact, the way they lives their lives should shame those who claim Yeshua as Messiah into rethinking the way they live/dress/eat, etc.

      And ALL three groups think they have arrived. ALL are mired in lies. We ALL need to seek Yah on our faces because time is short. He is calling His remnant OUT of Babylon (which is not only a place, but a system, religion, monetary, etc) – to be set apart from the world.

  20. Then look at it a different way,…Where does it say “If you love me,just forget about all those legalistic commandments!”?

    In my mind,we should be doing all we can to know what God asks us to do,and then do it,not look for loopholes around the very commandment He said to “Remember…”.

    If you’re fine with that,that’s your business. I think it’s foolish and dangerous.

  21. Every verse in the Bible has a context. Sandie please read John 15 and Jesus gives the context:

    Jesus is saying that we cannot bear fruit pleasing to God by human legalist effort to
    obey his commandments. The fruit of the Spirit comes from abiding in the Vine.
    The Pharisees were legalist but they did not please God with their humanistic attempts to keep and be justified by the Law. Christ illustrated this principle in the parable of the Pharisee and the publican.


    [1] I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
    [2] Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
    [3] Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
    [4] Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
    [5] I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
    [6] If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
    [7] If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
    [8] Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
    [9] As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
    [10] If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
    [11] These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
    [12] This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
    [13] Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
    [14] Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
    [15] Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
    [16] Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
    [17] These things I command you, that ye love one another.


    [9] And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:
    [10] Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
    [11] The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
    [12] I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
    [13] And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
    [14] I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

    The Apostle Paul wrote inspired by the Holy Spirit:


    [1] And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
    [2] Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
    [3] Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
    [4] But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
    [5] Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
    [6] And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
    [7] That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
    [8] For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    [9] Not of works, lest any man should boast.


    [10] Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

  22. So,is the message to go and disobey the commandments? No!

    You’re just beating around the bush,in my opinion.

    His Spirit in us is to bear fruit,and that fruit involves obeying Him,from the 10 Comandments to loving one another as He first loved us.

    His mercy towards us is profound,in knowing that we could not obtain salvation through keeping the law,and thus we need Christ to redeem us.

    I won’t be redundant here,but just look at the concordance on “obey” and “commandments” and tell me they aren’t important.

    On second thought,you don’t have to tell me anything. What you believe is between you and God. You don’t see me looking for loopholes when God’s word says plainly,in the New Testament,”If you love me,keep my Commandments”.

    You can interpret that anyway you like,but you won’t convince me that it doesn’t say what it says.

    • Sandie, I agree with you sister – we obey Him because we love Him. His words are plain and simple. To those with eyes to see and ears to hear. And we only see and hear when the Ruach haKodesh (Holy Spirit) moves a work in our heart. If someone wants to debate – just seek Yah if you are to respond. No amount of debate will convince a heart of stone that has not been softened by the Ruach. It’s a lesson I’m learning too. I try to speak when He puts something on my heart (obey Him) – and I’m learning now to walk away when that still small voice tells me the seed is planted and to let Him do the watering — lest I get entangled and snared. Don’t cast pearls before swine either. Yah gives discernment as what we’re dealing with in each situation…halleluYah:).

  23. Sandie, the following website addresses the issue of the debatable issues such as keep the Sabbath on Saturday or another day.

    Now, we want to make it clear that all Christians are to abstain from fornication, adultery, pornography, lying, stealing, etc. Christians do have a right to judge the spirituality of other Christians in these areas where the Bible clearly speaks. But, in the debatable areas we need to be more careful, and this is where legalism is more difficult to define. Rom. 14:1-12 says that we are not to judge our brothers on debatable issues. One person may eat certain kinds of foods where another would not. One person might worship on a particular day where another might not. We are told to let each person be convinced in his own mind (Rom. 14:5). As long as our freedom does not violate the Scriptures, then everything should be okay.


    [16] Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    • What’s the point,Gordy?

      We’ve proven there’s no way we can agree on this. Like I said,you’re free to interpret however you want,and just because we don’t agree doesn’t mean that I am “judging” you or have not love for you. Let the Lord alone be the judge!

      Remember that it’s the Catholic church that says it’s her authority to change the Sabbath.
      Anything that validates doing that in my mind is just proof that they are in agreement with Rome.

      And that the whole world follows….(except for the remnant,who obey the commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus). I refuse to acknowledge a Sabbath that rests on the traditions of man.

    • Gordy – go read those actual Scriptures for yourself. You are quoting some website that has taken several Scriptures that were addressing DIFFERENT scenarios (different groups of people!) and therefore it is twisting the meaning of what was being said!

  24. Sandie,

    Where did you get the idea that the Catholic Church changed the Sabbath to Sunday? The following website proves this not so.

    You may not be SDA, but many people
    to-day come under their influences through TV broadcast and publications that are not advertised as being SDA. The Seventh Day Adventist boast they are the only true remnant church and all other believers in Christ will not be saved. The following video contains testimonies of former Adventist :

    • Following is from an exadventist website:

      by Pastor J. Mark Martin

      WHEN THE COUNSEL OF ACTS 15 CONVENED to determine what Gentile Christians must observe, SABBATH KEEPING IS CONSPICUOUSLY ABSENT. Peter exhorts the leadership of the Church not to place the Gentiles under the Law:

      Now therefore why do you put God to the test by placing upon the neck of the disciples a yoke which neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear? But we believe that we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they also are.” Acts 15:10-11.

      The final judgment of the Jerusalem Council contains no reference to Sabbath keeping. Circumcision was discussed and deemed unnecessary (vss. 5-6; 19-20). If Sabbath keeping were to be an essential part of the New Covenant relationship with God it would have been mentioned in the discussion because it would have been an unfamiliar practice to the Gentiles. Sabbath keeping was not even discussed because it is not a requirement for New Covenant believers:

      “For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay upon you no greater burden than these essentials; that you abstain from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication; if you keep yourselves free from such things, you will do well. Farewell.” (Acts 15:28-29).

      NOTICE that the Holy Spirit told them NOT to lay upon the Gentiles any greater burden than THOSE ESSENTIALS. OBVIOUSLY THE HOLY SPIRIT DID NOT THINK SABBATH KEEPING WAS AN ESSENTIAL THING ANYMORE! cont….

    • Yes, the gentiles who came to Yeshua were to abide by those few rules set out in Acts and IF you read on further – it says BECAUSE they will learn the rest (the Law of Moses) in the synagogues each week. Read your Scriptures Gordy.

  25. Gordy,we can go on doing this as long as you wish.

    For every reason you have for not keeping the Sabbath,I will bring up reasons for keeping the Sabbath.

    I’m not forcing the issue. If your conscience is right with God,may it go well with you then.

    This is what the spirit convicts me to believe,and I can do no other.

    …”The Sabbath has existed since creation when God added the Seventh day to the week with the one and only purpose of a Sabbath rest. This is the only reason we have a seven day week today. God also blessed and sanctified this day for Holy use.

    This was done before sin had entered the World and was part of God’s perfect plan. Most Christians do not know that the word translated “rested” in our English Bibles in Genesis 2:3 is actually “shabath” in the Hebrew and means Sabbath.

    Here is the word Sabbath right at creation. Saturday is also called the Sabbath in over 105 languages just as it was named at creation. This dates right back to Babel in Genesis 11, where Saturday was recognized as the Sabbath day and was incorporated into the very name of the day.

    In English we have the Pagan name Saturday. In reference to the future destruction of Jerusalem, Jesus states in Matthew 24:20, “And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath.” Jesus is therefore saying that the Sabbath will be kept subsequent to His death.

    The gospel of Luke states in Luke 23:56 that when the body of Christ was being prepared, “they rested the Sabbath day according to the Commandment.” Luke’s gospel was written 30 to 50 years after the cross and Luke still shows that the Commandment is unchanged. If it were changed, Luke would have told us since it is one of the Ten Commandments.

    Isaiah also prophesied in Isaiah 66:22-23 that, “For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make … and from one Sabbath to another, shall ALL flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.”

    We should of course expect nothing less than this solid evidence since Jesus said that not a letter of the law is going to pass as long as heaven and earth are still here.”…

  26. Hi Sandie,

    I went to the ten commandment website you provided and clicked on some links and articles. If you look
    carefully there are quotes from Ellen G. White founder of SDA. This website appears to be SDA website and claims to be associated with the only true remnant church. Please check the link to the article they provide: read under the subtitle: What happened in 1844?

    Also bloggers on this website should read the entire article

    on the Sabbath & Sunday

  27. Gordy,

    Read Mark 6:12 and I believe that Sandie is the type of person JESUS describes.

    She doesn’t get it. I don’t believe she is born again, otherwise she would understand SCRIPTURE.

    Sandie, it is pretty self evident that you are of the seventh adventist cult “antichrist spirit” 1 JOHN 4:3. You need to get out of that cult and get serious with GOD.

    • Cult:
      1. (Christian Religious Writings / Theology) a specific system of religious worship, esp with reference to its rites and deity
      2. (Christian Religious Writings / Theology) a sect devoted to such a system
      3. (Sociology) a quasi-religious organization using devious psychological techniques to gain and control adherents
      4. (Sociology) Sociol a group having an exclusive ideology and ritual practices centred on sacred symbols, esp one characterized by lack of organizational structure

      Do you really want to go there?

      Bob, You judge Sandie for keeping Sabbath. And exhorting others to obey Yeshua. And Sandie doesn’t understand Scripture, isn’t serious with ‘God’ (a teutonic title – do your homework) and is in a cult as a result? Aren’t you supposed to love your brothers and sisters and NOT get divided over matters that are not serious (to do with salvation)?

      The spirit behind you is NOT from the Most High.

    • Additionally, Lisa and Sandie, I hasten for BOTH of you to look at LA’s comment to Sandie on the Nov.4 Postings from “Where is the Promise of His Coming” on comment on from, of course, Sandie:
      lamarzulli said
      November 6, 2010 at 1:14 am

      Sandie – I’m growing weary of your diatribe. The rapture is plainly stated in the Bible. It’s there, period. Behold I shall show you a mystery. We shall all be changed in the twinkling of an eye. The dead in Christ will rise first and then those of us who are left will rise and greet the Lord in the AIR and be with evermore. I believe in the Rapture. It’s a real event. I’ve had a vision of it. Please move on to another topic as you’ve been beating this horse bloody. L. A.
