L. A. Marzulli
The conference has gone really well! It is great to spend time with Russ and Randy and the folks who attended. As usual people came from all over the country and local attendance was spotty!
I also met Pastor Caspar McCloud! It was wonderful to spend some quality time with him and felt like I had found a long lost brother.
I will speak this morning at the New Covenant church while Randy and Russ are at Pastor Mikes Church. I will talk about Jesus warning to his disciples: when you see these things begin to happen look up!
Thanks to Pastor Mike, Kelly, Ben and everyone else at Lion Heart Ministries for making this a great conference!
Jesus gives us a list of events to watch for, wars and rumors of wars, famines and pestilence, earthquakes in diverse places and troublesome times. He also admonishes us to: watch and be ready!
This is the Bun for today! When we read Luke 21, we see Jesus lay out the future with great specificity. He is telling His disciples that Jerusalem will be trodden down and held by the Gentiles until the time of the Gentiles is fulfilled. He also makes it clear that Israel will be scattered among the nations. All of this has been fulfilled as we know Jerusalem was conquered by the Roman general Titus in 70 ad, and the Jews were scattered to the far corners of the earth.
However, on the birth pains of the Holocaust the nation of Israel is gathered back into her ancient homeland and like scripture tells us is born in a day, in 1948. This sets the prophetic clock ticking and is the fulfillment of a number of prophecies, one being Ezekiel 37.
The bottom line is this: Are we seeing the signs Jesus told us to watch for? They are happening in front of us, yet most people choose to ignore them. I believe we are headed toward the Time of Jacobs Trouble that we are told will last 7 years. It is a time where: unless those days were shortened no flesh would survive.
In closing todays Bun: We are told to watch and be ready. We are admonished to watch the signs Jesus warns us will herald his coming again. I believe the signs are here and His coming is soon.
What was written will come to pass. What was foretold will unfold!
