Sunday Go to Meeting Bun!

Sunday Bun!


L. A. Marzulli

Psalm 118: 24-25  This [is] the day [which] the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.  Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.

I say these two lines of scripture every morning when I awaken.  It is usually my first thought of the day.  The first line acknowledges who made the day.  It echoes the Genesis creation account, where El Elyon – The Most High God  – spoke everything into existence.   You remember how the earth was in darkness and then He said:  Let there be light!    I believe in this literally, as He spoke, and it happened. It was not the process of Darwinian evolution.   He made the day, and now who knows how many years later, the rotation of our planet around our sun, brings about both day and night as we float somewhere in the vast reaches of space!

we will rejoice and be glad in it.   We have a choice upon awakening each day.  We can look at our problems, cares, worries and the things of the world which so easily distract us, or we can rejoice and be glad for another day of life, for who amongst us can add one day to our life?  We don’t know when our time here is up and He calls us home.  So we should take this admonition to heart and rejoice and be glad!  He made this universe, set the planets in motion, created us from the dust of the ground and breathed life into us.  We are fearfully and wonderfully made!   We should celebrate each day that we are given and live it to the fullest.

Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.

This verse is usually not tied to the preceding verse, however it should be said in conjunction with it because it also sets the tone for our day!  We ask Him to save us!  Save us from sin that is always crouching at the door.  Save us from the snares of the Fallen One.  Save us from what is coming on the world.  Save us from ourselves, the feelings, thoughts, and emotions that can overwhelm us.  Jesus came to save us, to set us free from the bondage of sin.  He can break the yoke of slavery to sin, and all we need to do is ask Him, for He is mighty to save.

The next few words, send now prosperityshould not be confused with the bozos on TV who try to get us to send them our $1000 seed faith offering.  We all want to prosper, to be successful in what we endeavor to do.  Who amongst us wants to fail?   When we go to Him and ask Him to send prosperity we are asking Him to oversee the work of our hands, no matter what that is.  We should learn to invite Him into our work place, into the very heart of whatever it is we do, for in the end success comes from the Lord!

In closing todays Bun:  This verse can set the tone of our day, as it can override our thoughts and emotions and remind us who it is that we serve and who is in control.  By saying this verse it sets our minds on Him and keeps our flesh in check.  In this way, as we wash our minds with His word, our spirit is nurtured and we can rejoice and be glad for: this is  the day that the Lord has made!

  1. Indeed and we are living testimonies to his mighty work. Yet there are those who cannot humble themselves enough to admit that their can be anything greater than their aging flesh. Thank you Father for everything. My spirit groans when i see the wicked trying to provoke you for when thy mighty hand moves nations tremble. God bless you all!

  2. Amen. I think you just gave the shortest, and to the heart of what we are as Christians, sermon, I have heard in a wee while. Big thanks.

  3. Good morning every one, I love this article L.A and a side not Iran had two earthquakes a 6.3 and a 6.4 and the death toll is at a 180. And there saying that the economy is going to collapse over there. I think I mention this a while a go It’s God’s handy work, especially if it’s two twin quakes but it dose say in Eziekle that there will be a great shaking in the land before War and it looks like it going to start happening with the quakes first. God’s going to destroy the land with out missile’s. God bless we could all be going home soon.

  4. I needed to read this. It broke me down and brought tears to my eyes. God is good. His love is like no other.

  5. I say the same thing every morning! But instead of the second verse (but only because I had forgotten it was there) I ask Him to guide my hands to do His work and my mind to think only what He wants me to think about and my big mouth to spout only good things that honor Him…….
    does that count? 🙂

  6. Yeah, my exact words are, “Lord please keep my big mouth from displeasing you” and He knows how big a deal that can be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Today’s Bun is better than what we would receive were we to go to church today, Sunday. The IS the day He made.
    I am the creature He made. The wild rabbit in my yard He made. My sadness, when I think of the state of the world today, He made too, and His Spirit groans in that.

  8. Indeed, Praise the Lord for this is the day that the Lord has made! I shall rejoice forevermore in the courts of His Kingdom!

    Great prayer and blessings from the Lord…

    O Praise the LORD of heaven
    Praise Him in the heights.
    Praise Him, all ye angels of His
    Praise Him, all His Host.
    Praise Him, sun and moon
    Praise Him, all ye stars of light
    Let them praise the Name of the LORD


  9. As Christians, I think we can all agree that “In the beginning GOD CREATED the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1), but how did He accomplish this amazing feat, and how long ago was the Beginning-of-the-Beginning? And almost as important: WHEN and HOW did He partially obliterate that original perfect world and universe? Even you NON-Creationists might find the following information enlightening!

    I believe Dr. Walt Brown (Mechanical Engineering, M.I.T.) has some of the best answers to questions about Creation Science, the Age of the Earth, Flood Catastrophism, and a myriad other questions related to these topics. (Including the origin of disastrously destructive Asteroids & Meteoroids!)

    Dr. Brown is the originator of the Hydro-Plate Theory that helps to explain the dynamics of Noah’s Flood and the resulting catastrophic devastation we see on the Earth AND in the whole Universe today. The enlightening research and information compiled by Dr. Brown in his book, “In The Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood,” is a much, MUCH better Biblical-Scientific theory than the seriously flawed “Gap & Ruin-Reconstruction” (GRR) hypothesis and the anti-Scriptural Theistic-Evilutionism.

    REMEMBER: “There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all argument, and which cannot fail to keep man in everlasting ignorance.
    That principle is condemnation BEFORE investigation.”
    – Edmund Spencer

    To get a short, overall view of Dr. Brown’s Hydro-Plate theory, watch the video HERE:

    You can either purchase the book, “In The Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood,” or examine the whole volume FREE OF CHARGE on the Center for Scientific Creation’s website HERE:

    Also, an excellent Biblical/Scientific argument against GRR can be found at, Answers in Genesis – “What About the Gap & Ruin-Reconstruction Theories?” Go HERE:

    And for you Theistic-Evilutionists: get the Scriptural lowdown from the Creator, The Lord Jesus Christ HERE:
    If you are a faithful and courageous Christian or unbeliever who goes where the truth leads, I believe you will find it invariably leads to Young-Earth Creationism and World-Wide Flood Catastrophism!


  10. The Lord shall provide for those who serve him as long as we work hard in life and most of all to serve him. He gave me a sign of giving me squash during our difficult time with my wife. I posted a blog about that sign called “God Gave Me Squash”. I hope you have a wonderful day, take care and God bless.

  11. Amen! Thank you for that wonderful inspiration, L.A.! May we all continue to walk closely with God, and may God continue to bless one and all.

  12. Colossians 1:9-14

    9For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding,

    10so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;

    11strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience;

    12joyously giving thanks to the Father,
    who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light.

    13For He rescued us from the domain of darkness,
    and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,

    14in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

    Hallelujah !!!!
    Kirk 🙂

  13. You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 1st John 4:4

  14. Something the Lord has been showing me lately is the difference between Christianity and New Age.

    Both stress the royal commandment to love your neighbor as yourself, Jesus’ Sermon on the mount, doing good deeds, helping the poor etc so Christians and new agers can sound very similar at times. But Christianity goes beyond love your neighbor. Christians are commanded to live holy lives, while still loving their neighbors as themselves. Thats the difference,( besides having our sins forgiven etc.) Thats what separates us. Only Christianity, through the blood of Jesus, cleanses us from our sins, and also gives us power over our sins which makes us free indeed, while they are trapped in their sins, powerless to overcome them, and still held captive by their sins.

    So new agers may absolutely be filled with love and good will, loving their neighbors, doing many outstanding good deeds, making them by all outward appearance seem like angels of light, yet still secretly engaging in the most vile sins, secretly hating themselves and wishing to be free.

    The more we as Christians refuse to talk about sin and refuse to call attention to it, the more new age we sound.Because our power over sin, is the very thing that separates us from them and just being a bunch of do gooders. When we focus on the same things they also focus on, I’m afraid the world can’t tell us apart. When we don’t focus on the one thing that separates us, it causes the rest of the world to put us all in the same box. That box being: loving people doing good deeds and talking spiritual talk.Since new agers can also talk about Jesus and sound very spiritual and the world doesn’t know the difference between a Godly spirit and a worldly spirit. Power over sin is the difference between us and we should shine our light on that, since thats what separates us from everybody else.

    • So very true, TGBTG. The whole sin issue and the salvation message continues to be the big stumbling block for them.

  15. Quick thoughts:

    1. ) I’m guessing the Egyptian Army is going to be extremely angry and displeased after being blatantly lied to and having the rug pulled out from underneath them.

    2.) Israel better watch that border very closely. Morsi made his intentions very clear about Jerusalem as we all saw and heard in that video that folks like L.A. got out there and our pathetic media of course didn’t bother with since our government has been arguably the MB’s biggest boosters since ’09.

  16. To all, His strength and blessings this day. Wonderful words L.A. So be it!
    Hi Eric~
    Not sure what your #1 blurb is reference to. Is this a reference to something specific that has happened recently? Curious…..

    • I was responding to my own post up there. JLL has posted it too. DEBKA is reporting that the Muslim Brotherhood has pulled a fast one on the Egyptian Army and taken complete control of the country without any checks and balances whatsoever. I posted the DEBKA link, some Fox News link and then in a second post made a couple of comments about those two stories. Sorry if it didn’t look like it made a lot of sense.

    • Not a problem brother:^D Just read L.A.s alert post. So your initial post was zooming in on the potential. Good call!


    GOOD WORD !!!


    SOOOO Many Pastors are more like “hire-lings”…telling golf stories and little messages that rhyme …with VERY LITTLE, if any, ANOINTING BY THE POWER
    of GOD’s HOLY SPIRIT. JESUS SPOKE WITH AUTHORITY …and people noticed
    the difference…THE PHARISEES, SADDUCEES, AND SCRIBES had NO power!!!

    It is sad that many pulpits ARE FILLED WITH MAN PLEASERS, rather than
    getting on their faces for hours SEEKING GOD’S HEARTBEAT for their
    specific “sheep”. Many modern “pulpit-eers” are more interested in keeping
    people in the seats….THAN PREACHING & TEACHING WITH FIRE !!!




    • @I agree with you Kirk, and I can feel your passion and frustration.

      We the church, all have to get together on one side,instead of competing with each other, and come into the unity of the faith and believe the same things. That’s what Pastors and teachers are for. They were appointed to make that happen.God gave them to the church to bring us into unity by causing us all to believe the same things. The same truth.
      But that’s not happening. We are as scattered and divided as ever, with everybody doing their own thing, and believing and teaching whatever seems right to them. And every day its getting worse. Our beliefs are becoming farther and farther apart, even though we all read the same Bible and all profess to have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

      Many don’t take their walk with the Lord seriously. Christianity is not a hobby, but the way some people choose to walk it out, it would seem that way. They pick it up when they’re bored, and drop it again when they find something better to do.

      The biggest miracle for the church in our generation, will be when we all believe and preach the same things. It seems impossible to me, but Jesus said that with God nothing is impossible. So we may see it happen yet, but not without much suffering and purging of sin, I’m afraid. If we’d only be obedient to His word, this life would be a lot easier for us.


      Your post above is soooo RIGHT ON! EPHESIANS 4:11-16 is a POWERFUL
      passage of SCRIPTURE that “gets skimmed over” in it’s many parts!!

      11And He gave some as Apostles,…EACH of these 5 Offices has a ROLE !
      and some as Prophets,
      and some as Evangelists,
      and some as Pastors
      and Teachers,

      12for THE EQUIPPING of the SAINTS…God’s sanctified people prepared !!

      for the work of service,……..PREPARED SERVANTS “DO” THE MINISTRY !!!

      to the BUILDING UP of the BODY of Christ;….BODY is STRENGTHENED !!!

      13until we ALL attain to the UNITY of the FAITH, …NOT DIVERSE doctrine!

      and of the (TRUE) knowledge of the Son of God,…WHO HE IS TO ALL !!!

      to a mature man,….ABLE to FUNCTION with PURPOSE !!!

      to the measure of the stature….THERE IS A LEVEL WE ARE CALLED TO !!

      which belongs to THE FULLNESS of Christ….FILLED WITH HIM !!!

      14As a result,……THE EFFECT of THE ABOVE….causes the following !!!

      we are NO LONGER to be children,….KIDS believe anything, IMMATURE

      TOSSED here and there by waves…CAN’T STAND on there own!!!

      and CARRIED about by every wind of doctrine,…LACK DISCERNMENT !!

      by the trickery of men, … DO NOT RECOGNIZE EVIL, FALSE teaching

      by craftiness in deceitful scheming;…DO NOT SEE “The Plan” of evil !!!

      15but speaking the truth in love,…NOT Cowards, or Vicious giving TRUTH

      we are to grow up… WE do NOT stay as we are…HEALTHY people grow!!

      in all aspects…WE do NOT “pick and choose” what “we” like or dislike.

      into Him who is the head, even Christ,…BODY is to be LIKE THE HEAD !!

      16from whom the whole body,…EVERYONE….Not just a few people!!!

      being fitted and held together…WE function in our place, not anothers’ !!!

      by what every joint supplies,…WE ALL HAVE SOMETHING TO OFFER !!!

      according to the proper working…SKILL-FULL – DESIGNED – PURPOSE

      of each individual part,…IF I don’t do my part, YOU can’t do yours either!

      causes the growth of the body…THIS MAKES US HEALTHY, not overworked

      for the building up of itself in love….WE all PERFORM better when LOVED.

      Well, that is kinda how I see these things playing out on our lives
      as PART of the CHURCH…the greater WHOLE…to be HIS BODY on earth.

  18. Egypt’s President Morsi removes Defense Minister Tantawi, chief of staff

    Move comes as newest phase in struggle between military, Muslim Brotherhood; Morsi cancels constitutional declaration aiming to limit presidential powers which the army issued in June.

    Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi retired the country’s two top defense officials, just one week after militants attacked a police station in the Sinai peninsula, killing 16….

    Morsi also cancelled a constitutional declaration aiming to limit presidential powers which the ruling army council issued in June as the election that brought him to power drew to a close.

    The removal of [Defence Minister] Tantawi, who served under Hosni Mubarak, is the latest phase in the power struggle between the Egyptian military and the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Last month, Tantawi raised the stakes in the military’s political standoff with the Muslim Brotherhood, saying the armed forces will not allow a “certain group” to dominate the country….

    The military, which ruled after the fall last year of Hosni Mubarak, and the Brotherhood, the country’s strongest political force, are in a competition over power that has intensified with Morsi’s winning of the presidency last month.

    Days before Morsi was sworn in on June 30, the Brotherhood-led parliament was dissolved and the generals gave themselves legislative and budgetary authority and control over the process of drafting a new constitution, put severe limits on the president’s authority.

    In his comments at the time, Tantawi did not specify the Brotherhood, but his reference that the military would not allow the group to hold sway was clear.

    “Egypt will never fall. It belongs to all Egyptians and not to a certain group…. The armed forces will not allow anyone, especially those pushed from outside, to distract it from its role as the protector of Egypt,” he said. “The army will never commit treason and will continue to perform its duties until Egypt reaches the shores of safety.”


    • I believe Morsi wants the military to be made up of the Muslim Brotherhood so much so that he worked out something (with Iran?) to have the terrorists kill his own military members. It is still going on PLUS Israel has allowed the Egyptian military to use or flyover their space to help curb the violence. What a clever ruse! Morsi is getting everything his way as well as bringing Israel into the violence.

      “” (remove quotes)

      Egypt is poised for creating havoc against Israel.

    • Like I wrote up above with the DEBKA link: This is big. Takes us closer to Psalm 83 IMO.

      Trick here is: I wonder how the Egyptian military feels right now? They basically were duped, suckered, lied to AND had the rug pulled out from underneath them.

      As for Morsi? We already know what he’s about and how eager he is to try and make a march on Jerusalem. (Thanks to LA and others for posting that footage that of course media never bothered with.)

      DEBKA at least was reporting tanks moving closer to Israel’s border. No idea if that’s true or not for sure but clearly Israel should be on even an even more heightened state of alert as far as Egypt is concerned.

  19. L.A., thank you very much. God bless you and your loved ones most abundantly!

    An hour ago I got to open the door to your material (books, DVDs, etc.) for a very dear couple. Already I know this is going to put all “the pieces” together for them, based on where they’re “at” and the things they’re wondering about. I kept getting a sense of “aha” moments when I answered questions this morning.

    This is a couple that I had lost touch with in 2004, but Holy Spirit led me to track them down two weeks ago. Our conversations since then have been building straight to this point, L.A., where your research and analysis is invaluable to get people up to speed so comprehensively. When the student is ready, the Zulli Lama appears!

    Again, I have to say what a blessing you are!

  20. that really moved me emotionally. i had those cold chills reading that Scripture this time, L.A. brought things to the realilization that right now, today, we, (anyone that would be on this blog commenting who are a very few remnant that in the near future or maybe now will be tracked by their online activity. a bill was passed and signed into law by Obama that That Federal Government or more specificly The President has a good amount of control/influance over The Internet. this is major but i digress), we who will not give an inch and have eyes to see have Our Lord’s protecting Hand on us because suddenly the way we believe and our morals are considered extreme and radical. to be considered normal in this climate you must feel like Obama or Pelosi or Debbie-wasserman-shulcz chairwomen of the DNC. and the rest are in a stupor or a little sottish. i am starting to keep Our Lord’s outspoken election in my prayers along with Israel that God keep a strong hedge of protection around each of you and your families.

  21. L.A. said: “Psalm 118: 24-25 This [is] the day [which] the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity. I say these two lines of scripture every morning when I awaken. It is usually my first thought of the day. The first line acknowledges who made the day.”

    I too start my day (upon awakening) with 118:24(!). This goes back several years when someone told me about a book, “Prayers That Avail Much.” Every sentence of every prayer is a scripture verse. There are about 150 prayers in the “25th Year Anniversary Edition.” I have given dozens of these books away, usually to encourage people who are just coming to know the Lord. But I still go to this book a lot myself although I’ve known the Lord for a while. Here’s a sample:

    “To Rejoice in the Lord”
    This is the day the Lord has made. I rejoice and I am glad in it! I rejoice in You always. And again I say, I rejoice. I delight myself in You, Lord. Happy am I because God is my Lord!

    Father, thank You for loving me and rejoicing over me with joy. Hallelujah! I am redeemed. I come with singing, and everlasting joy is upon my head. I obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing flee away. That spirit of rejoicing, joy, and laughter is my heritage. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty — emancipation from bondage, freedom. I walk in that liberty.

    Father, I praise You with joyful lips. I am ever filled and stimulated with the Holy Spirit. I speak out in psalms and hymns and make melody with all my heart to You, Lord. My happy heart is a good medicine and my cheerful mind works healing. The light in my eyes rejoices the hearts of others. I have a good report. My countenance radiates the joy of the Lord.

    Father, I thank You that I bear much prayer fruit. I ask in Jesus’ name, and I will receive, so that my joy (gladness, delight) may be full, complete, and overflowing. The joy of the Lord is my strength. Therefore, I count it all joy, all strength, when I encounter tests or trials of any sort because I am strong in You, Father.

    I have the victory in the name of Jesus. Satan is under my feet. I am not moved by adverse circumstances. I have been made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I dwell in the Kingdom of God and have peace and joy in the Holy Spirit! Praise the Lord! In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

    • Thanks Amaezed, There is so much to learn about prayer. I have a feeling we all just tap the tip of the iceberg when we pray compared to the real power thats available to us.But for sure speaking the word in prayer is a can’t miss combination.There is so much more, though. I think the old timers knew a lot more about prayer then our generation. In the old days, they passed down what they learned, but that knowledge is gone, because our generation wasn’t interested. I wish we would get the fire and passion back and really believe the things we profess and actually live it.




      amen !!!

      KIRK 🙂

  22. Father, this the way you’ve taught me to create: by plan, and prototype, and perfection.

    As Creator, what I say instantly unfolds. So I know that the prototype phase must have all the features of the perfection phase which will be sustained the same forever. That way imperfection can exist as variables which may be altered and adjusted and set to exclude evil and darkness in the coming perfected New Creation.

    I’ve created the prototype with history sufficient to focus on the key concern — which is the free will choices of the creatures and especially humans made in the image of God. And I’ve provided directions about what they should do and the way they should go, along with plenty of examples.

    It’s bewildering for those that refuse to believe that there can be anything than the prototype they’ve been born into. They follow the way of rebellion and stubborn self-determination even when it leads to the same old dead end. And even when I’ve laid down my own life rather than force them to separate from the rebel angels — they resist salvation — and insist they can make perfection out of the prototype by doing things their own ways. Even though each has hundreds of different ways, their eyes are so much so on their many ends that they never reach any of them.

    Those that have accepted salvation, Father, realize that they will be moved from the temporary into the eternal by letting me save them. These are the jewels with which I’ll seed perfection. And together as One, even as You and I are One — we will rejoice in Your Name, forever and ever, unending. Your will be done both in this creation and in the New Creation to come, amen and amen!

    Forever together Amen!

  23. The Muslim Brotherhood will act in concert to the desire of their handlers (United States), they are presently positioning themselves to threaten the security of Israel! The timing of their involvement however will be when the West and their Sunni terrorist allies provoke a regional conflict involving Russia, Iran, and many more nations! The United States has armed Saudi Arabia, Gulf Emirates, Palestinians, Libyans, Sudan, Yemen, and Egyptians for this very moment! The support of the United States for the Muslim Brotherhood identifies their clear intention to provoke a conflict resulting in another Arab/Israeli conflict that they hope will result in the destruction of all parties concerned. Once the smoke clears they can then move in to claim the resources of the Persian Gulf, Central Asia, Africa, and the recently discovered resources along the shore of the Meditteranean!

  24. Just wanted to share this segment of Dr James White who’s well studied in theology ( & I mean this guy is very bright!) in an excellent interview with a” King James Only” debator who calls in to ask questions. (But who really doesn’t want to listen to the answers.)
