9th of Av – A repost From the Cosmic Chess Match

TishaBavCommentary & Analysis


L. A. Marzulli

I decided to re-post this chapter from The Cosmic Chess Match to further discuss the 9th of Av.  In no way am I date setting or promulgating the view that something will happen on this date.  I am however illustrating that this date has historically been one of calamity for the Jewish people and therefore we should keep an eye on it.   The 9th of Av is July 15 & 16!  L.A.

Chapter 20: The Ninth of AV!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Supernatural hatred of the Jews

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

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

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

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

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

The control of Jerusalem[6]

The desert blooming[7]

The language of Hebrew restored[8]

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

Tisha B’Av – the Ninth of Av

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dates, times, and geographical settings are of great importance to the agenda of the Fallen One.  He uses these to further his agenda….

  1. Mr marzulli; There is a people that are hated above all; They are, “the chosen race, the royal priesthood, the holy nation, A people of God’s own possession” 1Pet2:9

    Please tell me; is the foretold conflict between the “seed of the serpent and the woman” in Genesis between satan and the Jews, or between satan and Jesus’ church?

    • Ephesians 2
      2 Corinthians 5

      Rev. 19
      14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

      Rev. 20
      7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

    • more specifically — there’s no good reason to put up a false wall of separation that has been torn down — in the Kingdom of Heaven there is neither greek nor jew

    • Getreal…

      Compare Daniel 7:21-22 and Revelation 13:7 with the following passages: Matthew 16:18-19 and Luke 10:19

      TWO (2) groups of “saints” are described here….can you tell me WHO they are ???

    • Kirk; There is only one group of saints, But there are two groups of bond-servants “the prophets and the saints” Rev11:18 Just as there is One Spirit that empowers both.They both equally receive their reward when the Judgment day comes, which happens to be at the seventh Trump Rev1:15

      victory in Jesus


    • Errrrr….Thanks for playing.

      The passage Daniel 7:21-22 and Rev 13:7 refers to The Tribulation “SAINTS”…

      WHO WILL BE OVERCOME by “The Little Horn” [anti-CHRIST]….which happens during the TRIBULATION period.
      [ Remember: 70th week of Daniel {The Tribulation}…… is FOR ISRAEL….Not the Church !!!]

      See Matthew 24:29-31…Mark 13:24-27…2 Thess. 2:8…Isaiah 27:12-13…Zechariah 14:1-11…Revelation 19:11-21


      The CHURCH is the “other group of saints” mentioned in Matthew 16 and Luke 10…..

      “of which the gates of hell SHALL NOT OVERPOWER IT.”


      God is talking about His People The Jews ( ISRAEL ) in Daniel……………….NOT THE CHURCH.

      GOD is talking about THE CHURCH in Matthew and Luke………………..NOT ISRAEL.


      Now then, another question:

      WHO ARE ……..”The Elect” ……..found in Matthew 24: 22, 24, 31

    • Kirk; maybe you should familiarise yourself with Mat28:18-20. Once you grasp it, there is no doubt who the elect of Mat24 be. pay special attention to Vs20

  2. Awesome write up as always.


    ^^ Could be an unforgettable summer in more ways than one in Europe at this rate.

  3. I believe Tishsa B’Av was yesterday, July 15. I looked it up online and all sources said July 15, 2013. I believe Tu B’Av is next week, sources list it as July 22 or 23, why the discrepancy i don’t know. Tu’B’Av is the happiest day in Jewish history, their “Valentine’s Day”. My birthday is July 23 so I hope that is the correct day and that something very good happens that day.

  4. John Bolton: Israel should have attacked Iran ‘yesterday’

    Former US ambassador to the UN says every day that goes by “puts Israel in greater danger,” urges Israel to stop waiting.

    “Israel should have attacked Iran yesterday – every day that goes by puts Israel in greater danger, every day Iran makes more progress,” John Bolton, a former US ambassador to the UN, told The Jerusalem Post in an interview on Monday.

    “I can understand why Israel wants us to take action, but the longer Israel waits for something that is not going to happen, the greater the danger Israel is in,” the senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute said.

    The US and Israel cannot expect to have perfect intelligence about Iran’s nuclear capabilities, but if Israel attacked Iran after it gained that capability, there could be “nuclear retaliation,” he said.

    During his first term, President Barack Obama implied that the US would not resupply Israel with weapons used in attacking Iran, Bolton said. He added that overwhelming congressional support would have forced the issue of resupplying Israel in any case.

    Now he thinks the situation has changed and the issue is whether the US would take the necessary measures to make the case that Israel was acting legitimately in self-defense.

    The interview, coming a day after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Iran was approaching the red line he set out at the UN last September, constituted a warning that Israel could attack Iran as a last resort to prevent it from gaining nuclear weapons capability.

    Asked about the chances that the US president would order an attack before any Israeli one, Bolton responded skeptically, “It would take a character transplant for Obama to order a US attack.”

    Bolton believes that the election of Hassan Rouhani as Iranian president will serve as a trap for the US, which will lull it into a false sense of security and more negotiations, inevitably leading to a nuclear Iran.

    One can already see this by the reaction of the EU and the White House to Rouhani’s election, he said.

    “The idea that Rouhani will negotiate seriously shows that this administration is on a different planet.”

    There have been more than 10 years of negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program and it has just kept building “a broad and deep infrastructure,” he said.

    “Rouhani is a snare for the unwary and we fell right into it,” said Bolton asserting that the main difference between President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the “moderate” president-elect is only rhetorical.

    “The moderates say, ‘Stop talking about it,’ and the radicals don’t stop talking about it.” In fact, “Rouhani boasted repeatedly about how he had suckered the EU during negotiations.”

    Regarding the regional fallout of an attack on Iran, Bolton said it is important that Israel and the US are politically aligned and sharing intelligence.

    And regarding US policy on Egypt and throughout the region, Bolton said the policy is “incoherent” because Obama does not understand the nature of radical Islam and the risk it poses. Obama believes that talking about Islam would be perceived in the region as attacking the religion even though Muslims are aware of the radical Islam issue.

    Bolton said that the only mistake the Egyptian military made so far was allowing Mohamed ElBaradei, the former director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, become vice president.

    And on Syria, he said that at this point the principal US interest is that chemical and biological weapons do not fall into the hands of terrorists. The country is going through a great tragedy, Bolton said, but he does not see supporting the opposition as a viable option.

    Asked about speculation regarding a presidential run in 2016, Bolton responded that he has not made a decision about running, but if he were to, it would be to get national security issues back to the center of political debate. International issues have “dropped under the radar screen,” and he would try to reverse that trend, he said.

    • richard….

      john bolton always seems to give good insight and “sensible” reporting, rather than the many nut-heads in the media.

      Thanks for the posts today, as usual they are good to know! Lots happening! Difficult to find time to hear, read, and see it all.


  5. Thousands of Jews gather at Western Wall to mourn Tisha Be’av
    Jews fast to commemorate the destruction of the two temples.

    On the eve of Tisha Be’av, thousands of Jews gathered at the Western Wall Monday night to mourn the destruction of the First and Second Temples, pray for the creation of a Third Temple, and express hope for peace.

    Tisha Be’av (the ninth day of the month of Av in the Hebrew calendar) is considered the “saddest day in Jewish history.” Jews fast to commemorate the Temples’ destruction, which occurred on the same day, 655 years apart.

    Several other significant tragedies also befell Jews on this day, including their expulsion from England and Spain in 1290 and 1492, respectively; Heinrich Himmler’s presentation of the “Final Solution” in 1940; and the Nazi deportation of Jews from the Warsaw ghetto in 1942.

    Gutman Locks, a Torah scholar and teacher originally from New York, helped parishioners wrap teffilin and pray a few meters from the Wall.

    “What’s so special about coming here on Tisha Be’av is that this is the location where the Temples were destroyed – just on the other side of the Wall,” Locks said. “And that’s where the third one will be built when the Messiah comes, and that one will not be destroyed.”

    “Even though it’s the saddest time of the year, we can see Jews come back to the land again, which was prophesized for thousands of years,” he continued. “We can actually see it happening.”

    Indeed, Locks said he viewed Tisha Be’av through a prism of sorrow and hope.

    “So, on one side it is very sad what has happened in our history, but now we can anticipate the happiest time of all creation, where the whole world will know God – will know peace,” he added. “We see it now, as more Jews live in Israel than any other place in the world.”

    Sarit Berko, a retired, non-observant native Israeli, who came to the Wall to observe Tisha Be’av from her home in Tel Aviv, said she has made the pilgrimage since she turned 10 years old, following the Six Day War.

    “My generation is so lucky to be born in Israel and not experience the Holocaust,” she said. “As I get older and more spiritual I believe this is my land and I am so grateful that I can come to mourn at this Wailing Wall, even though I’m not religious.”

    Berko also expressed hope that the sorrow Tisha Be’av engenders will one day be transformed into joy.

    “During Passover most Jews say ‘Next year in Jerusalem,’” she said. “As an Israeli I pray, ‘Next year may the Third Temple be built and last for eternity.’ We’re going to convert all our mourning into a festival, this is my prayer.”

    Rabbi Steven M. Graber, who leads a congregation in Long Island, came to Jerusalem with his wife and two daughters to observe the day of mourning.

    “Of course I think about the destruction of the Temples, but I see Jews rebuilding Israel – rebuilding Jerusalem – so it’s not really a sadness I feel, rather a keen awareness of every bit of history that’s gone on here from the time of David to today,” said Graber.

    “I feel privileged to be alive at this juncture in history because I can be here as a free Jew and I can extrapolate toward the wondrous future I see in this country for our people,” he added.

    Graber’s 19-year-old daughter Leora, a student at Queens College, said she viewed Tisha Be’av as a time for personal reflection.

    “For me, I’d say that putting all historical reasons [to mourn] aside, this is more of a time to reflect on yourself as a Jew and to be a part of a larger community,” she said. “I think that’s why we’re here – to identify with our own Judaism and with each other.”

    Meanwhile, Morrie and Millie Kaporovski of Netanya, who made aliya 29 years ago from Montreal, expressed conflicting feelings of hope and frustration regarding the lack of tolerance among Jews.

    “Today means commemorating all the horrendous deeds that were done in the name of religion to the Jews,” said Millie, a grandmother. “All kinds of horrible things happened on Tisha Be’av, so we’re so lucky to have our country. It is our home and no one will take it away from us again.”

    Morrie said he was troubled by a lack of tolerance among Jews in general, and in Jerusalem specifically.

    “For me, I mourn for our own people – that we haven’t learned a thing in the last 5,000 years about how to be tolerant of other Jews,” he said. “Because it’s Tisha Be’av it’s a sad day and I’m [also] saddened by the fact that I am fast learning how to dislike the city of Jerusalem because of the lack of tolerance and acceptance of different ways of being Jewish.”

    Still, Millie said that despite unpleasant infighting, she was heartened to live an unrivaled degree of freedom never experienced by her Jewish predecessors.

    “Just looking at the Kotel brings tears to my eyes because of all the Jews who haven’t been able to come here,” she said. “For us to be here, it’s a dream come true.”

    Fasting for Tisha Be’av ends Tuesday night at 8:15 pm in Jerusalem and 8:18 pm in the Tel Aviv area.

  6. I will take the bait Corey…if you would like to debate post-trib vs. pre-trib rapture theory I’m down…I will defend the post-trib position because that is what is taught throughout the Word of God. If you choose to engage in debate, I would gladly welcome the opportunity. OPEN DEBATE SHOULD ALWAYS BE ENCOURAGED. Perhaps, if you agree, we could choose another forum(out of respect for the owner of the blog) as I understand that honest debate on this subject, at very least, is not encouraged and actually frowned upon. If everything is truly done in love…only good things can come about. I truly believe that post-trib is the proper teaching concerning that rapture of the church so I extend this invitation in love…brother to brother.

    • No post trib is not taught throughout the bible. Plain and simple. And we have had the rapture debate ten times in the last 7 years on the blog and before LA tells you I will. We do not debate the pre mid or post on the blog.

    • Could very well be a ‘fearful surprise’ for those who find themselves in some fema camp or facing a chinese firing squad.

      Please understand; I am not squashing any believers hope, to the contrary; I encourage all believers to be prepared in order to be able to stand against the approachingTide of ‘beastly fury’,
      and trust that God’s Grace is sufficient no matter what circumstances we be in. To be sure; The Godly remnant will shine the light of the everlasting Gospel brighter than ever when the darkness is the thickest Rev14:6

      Let us remember, our commitment is to pick up the cross and follow. We can follow because He leads!
      We know that His calling changes not, and that His promise is to never leave and forsake us. Heb13:5

      “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid.
      What shall man do to me” Heb13:6

      victory in Jesus


    • amen get ready now then you don’t have to wonder at all get ready and stay ready. Seek him with a true heart as my “sister” keeps reminding me.

      For I sought the truth and found it and it keeps blinding the lies that try to usurp my crown!

    • I think we all are in for a BIG surprise. No one’s truly got it figured out. There is much the bible doesn’t tell us for whatever reason. Some things will remain mystery until the day we pass on into another life with Jesus. Then and only then will our eyes truly be opened. To say there will be some shocked souls will be the understatement of the century,

  7. “http://news.i24news.tv/optiext/optiextension.dll?ID=v7wwwXzPLDH5iuDtPxOfDvgwb4Px3lPakeCaLl”

    i24news debuts TOMORROW at 8pm,
    Israeli time (5pm GMT)

    Basically this is Israel’s answer to CNN, Fox, etc. etc. Maybe we’ll finally have something on TV that can give us some real news?

  8. dont quit your day job corey. LOL you are funny. post trib IS NOT taught tru out Gods word. NO WAY anyone can prove that. go ahead! if you all would just humble down and read John Shoreys book, “The Window Of The Lords Return” 1012-2020..only then will see the actually final truth on the Coming of Christ. Go ahead! i dare ya’s, read it! then and only then, will you finally see what i have been saying for a while now.

  9. Let’s not do the Rapture debates.

    LA constantly has asked people to do that here. It causes needless division and distraction. Thanks. 🙂

    • Thanks Eric.

      To Corey – If you’re going to debate the Rapture, please take it somewhere else. Why not focus on how many people you talked to about salvation today. How many of your friends have never heard you tell them what the good news is? Why not go to the New Age book store and talk to the clerk about Prophecy in a non-religious way? How about sending out an email talking about the weird weather we’re having and the 7.0 and higher earthquakes and how that ties in with what Jesus said. Why not join the fight instead of wondering and debating when we get to go home! Think about it!

    • i believe that goes for me as well. im sorry L.A i wont debate it no more on here. i promise. ON another note! i have a huge praise report! I had a super major breakthru last week, when both my sisters who havnt spoke to me 7 years, both called me within two days of each other, telling me how sorry they were for treating me very badly and ignoring me for long time! they said they were tired of being bitter, and missed me so very much. my one sister is a chronic alcoholic, she told me shes now saved, and is very hungry for the word of God, so i bought her a nice bible for her birthday which is tomorrow, shes so anxious to have one. AND she let me pray with her over the phone! i asked the lord to set her free once and for all, to fill her with the Holy Spirit. My other sister, is interested in worship music, so i sent her some music by Julie True, whos been on sid roth lately. my heads been spinning, all week, this is something i have been praying about for a long time, and God finally answered my prayers, i never would have imganied thme calling, let laone both saying they are sorry, i was over joyed. Now i get to encourage them every day by phone, because they are both so hurting and broken and now open to the gospel! Praise God, thankyou Father God for what you did last week! i will forever give you glory for what you kindly did. God IS good.

    • Praise God, I’m so happy for you. I pray it’s all water under the bridge and you all can move forward and enjoy one another’s company.

    • What a wonderful thing to have happened to you! We can pray that with the blessings of your two sisters contacting you after so long a time that this will be the beginning of other breakthroughs for you!

    • L.A. – It was just a little fun ribbing of Marlene. Not trying to be a troll or instigator of arguments here. Just a little humor, that’s all. I thought that looked rather obvious. Marlene understood it to be as such- RIGHT MARLENE! 😀

    • Mr. Marzulli,

      Pre, mid, post,…makes no difference to me as long as we still believe in A RAPTURE. I had no intentions of debating Corey on this blog because I am aware of your guidelines…I think I was simply fed up with the continual mocking of something that, quite frankly, I hold dear.

      I have visited this blog from time to time just over the last year and a half or so. I think I understand your guidelines but I must admit, I am a bit confused. I have been under the impression that this blog is mainly about escatological events. I am very much in the camp of “keep your eyes on Israel”. However, I find the “alien” agenda fascinating…and I am very much in agreement with much of what you post.

      Mr. Marzulli, I would like to send you an e-mail..I know that you are a busy man but hopefully you can find the time(and my mail)…would you please look for it? It wouldn’t take long and it sure would help clear up something for me.

      In Jesus,


    • Nevermind Mr. Marzulli…I will gracefully bow out of this blog. With all do respect, I would not point an unbeliever to this blog…not at this time. Perhaps I will stop by on Sunday’s for your bun…you certainly have many good things to share and I certainly have been edified by them…God know’s I mean that.

      God bless!

      In Jesus,

      Daniel Ellis

    • im sorry daniel. this is my fault, i wasnt acting right. this has to do with my negative reactions to a few people. im really very sorry for my attitude lately. i dont have any real excuses, but since L.A. put me in my place, i feel pretty bad about it. i sincerely apologize to anyone on here that i have offended. i mean this really! i was looking over my posts. im not looking real good right now. im sorry guys! i have been hurting over some things, and been lashing out. no one fault but my own.

    • I think you have a bright light sister and it can only get brighter. Keep the faith and the fight and know that We can ALL use a bit of conviction now and then especially my sorry tail. Ive been full of self pity lately and though I have some cause I have been far to lackadaisical in my part in the great war raging ever around us. If you can apologize then so might I and in doing so we can only shine brighter! GOD BLESS YOU !

    • i actually feel really bad right now. it took L.A to say something to me, that lit me up. after re reading my own posts. i dont show the love of christ at all. im just so sorry to all i sounded ugly to. your real people and i was ugly. not cool.

    • amen LA. Speak on it! I think that is our great chore our true duty. Warn the lost guys. Warn em and then warm em with the love that’s eternal not just some fleeting fancy!

    • I agree, IF and when it happen, most likely I as well as everyone on here will be long gone and buried, if not, great, I wait with excitement and great anticipation for that day, however, no reason to argue and get caught up over the time, and I certainly wouldn’t hold my breath or make enemies out of the issue.

    • 🙂 Yes…it is a great video …..because it teaches THE TRUTH. 🙂

      The Word of GOD { JESUS } taught these patterns ALL THROUGHOUT THE SCRIPTURES.

      Sadly, ignorance of these things has MOLDED SOME PEOPLE’S MINDS INTO CONCRETE:

      “They are thoroughly MIXED UP and SET IN THEIR WAYS.”


  10. Here’s all ive learned while on this earth
    take this advice for what its worth.
    A man in need will hold no grudge
    A rusty spicket will not budge
    A horrible day drags on and on
    While the best of days is up and gone
    A stingy man will die alone
    A man in love can hold his own
    a heart without is worth ten pence
    a heart within just has no sense
    A stitch in time saves many stitches
    The richest men keep hoarding riches
    Above all else is this I hate
    Another empty rapture debate….

    • While I kinda think your poem is neat,
      I must confess, “It is NOT complete.”

      You see there is TRUTH and there is error,
      The two don’t compute, nor do they compare.

      When God penned the Scriptures by the agent of man,
      He changed NOT the TRUTH, so TRUTH will always stand.

      Now think with me a moment and ponder this thought:
      Why would Jesus write Scripture, and then with man do HE fought?

      No. His Word is the TRUTH, not a game played or a sleuth.
      If we RIGHTLY HANDLE THE WORD, we’ll always be led forth with TRUTH.

      So, If mankind would HONOR HIS WORD as it was writ,
      We would NOT have to deal with this Post, Mid-trib S_ _+.

      The ignorance of the many has led to stupid books being bought,
      Because this debate would NEVER be… IF THE TRUTH WOULD BE TAUGHT !!!

    • oh real nice kirk! mid trib S_ _+?? now if that were ME?? i would of gotten deleted! you have like, this real attitude if someone says something you dont like. gee, thats too bad.

    • Marlene Pye…

      doctrines of LIES fall into that same category. 1 Timothy 4:1 and 16

      Plus, it does NOT surprise me that you get MORE HUNG UP ON “S _ _ +” in a poem ……..to make a POINT…

      Than the fact that you choose to believe a LIE because you don’t rightly handle The Word.

      To me, THAT is much more “disturbing” …..to BELIEVE A LIE ….and then to TEACH A LIE.

      I have issues with THAT.


    • i dont freakin care WHAT you have an issue with! YOUR posts are disturbing, like your pissed at the world and want everyone to know about it. i DONT believe a ‘LIE’ i believe Gods word. every part of it. take a long walk off a short pier!

    • Marlene – Your conduct is inappropriate on this Blog. Clean up your act or leave. I read faithful’s poem and see nothing wrong. You are way out of line and if you continue with your attitude, I’ll block you.

    • and no i dont get hung up on the word. you do! your the one who posted it. for a reaction. well? you got one! didnt you?

    • i wasnt talking to faithful. and your right, im out of line on here. i guess i was over the top on my reactions to some on here. i get very defensive and im sorry. wont happen again.

  11. I just want to say amen this is a fellow brother who’s been warning others for I think close to a year (maybe longer). Hes been laughed at and mocked but now people are finally seeing the truth. Praise GOD we aren’t alone in this fight! More and more come here and I know ive sent a ton (many are a bit intimidated to comment) and we love you guys and want your testimonials. la is a fellow brother that’s set this blog up to help teach us and show us the many things hes sent and been show to teach the lost and lead them to the LORD that bought us. We are not our own for we were bought at a Great Price!

    • had a rough night and very bad morning but my wife’s niece whose only 18 came out of nowhere and cheered me up. Shes taking me to my dr. appointment with the psychiatrist in the morning but she told me something I hadn’t heard in a long time from anyone on her side of the family …that’s what did it. she told me she loved me. It was just a simple text on the phone but It reminded me im not alone and others think of me as I go through a process I was totally unprepared for though I thought I would be. I guess that’s a life lesson for us all we can never truly be prepared even when we know death is imminent for the ones we love. I cried on my sister n law this morning I was angry and asked her “how could she love of a bottle of alcohol more than me?” she responded succinctly by saying, “she loved you and everyone knew it she just had a bad addiction one that’s taken many of our loved ones from us.” So true. I find wisdom coming from those id never suspect but perhaps the Lord put that there in her mind to say. He does that a lot ..I know that better than anyone.

  12. Here’s how the enemy is brainwashing us … complete with transhumanism, global corporations, hybrids, AI’s, super humans, monsters, other dimensions, portals, magic (sorcery), and witches.

    2 AI’s (false prophets)
    3 machines (death and hell)
    4 the witch (babylon)
    5 bugs (the destroyers)
    6 BnL (elite merchants and rulers)
    7 monsters (the dragons)

  13. I don’t think anything will happen today. However, I was a little unnerved to see that on our regular local news was some kind of double screen and we saw a nuke going off. It happened twice. Sorry don’t know how to describe it better than that….

  14. And for those, like me, who wonder why seeds don’t sprout…
    Also for those preparing to overcome global catastrophes….
    … use sandpaper, acid, and bleach !!

  15. Truly the end draweth nigh.

    This is like Bigfoot coming out in front of the camera for ten minutes. I halfway wondered if this person was an urban legend.

    This may very well be an end times sign in and of itself. Behold!


    • Eric….

      That is funny, ………..and I think you may be right.

      Rare Sighting Indeed !!


  16. “http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/07/17/us-quake-peru-idUSBRE96G04X20130717”

    (Reuters) – A magnitude 6.2 earthquake struck southern Peru on tue., according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

    The epicenter of the quake was located 53 miles northwest of Arequipa, Peru, at a depth of about 52 miles, according to the USGS. Magnitude 6 quakes are capable of causing severe damage.

    Peruvian authorities said there were no reports of damage or injuries.

    “http://www.ucsm.edu.pe/santury/main3.htm” (following via google translate)

    “In the time of the Incas, the relationship between man and nature, was displayed in all its magical-religious beliefs that sustained its reason for being in this world.”

    Countless supernatural beings were revered by the Incas as, viracocha (the creator), inti (the sun), yllapa (the god of weather)…. The Inca human sacrifices performed for various reasons….

    In the case of Arequipa, it is possible that some of the offerings that were run in the vicinity such as Pichu Pichu, Misti, Chachani, etc., are due to the eruption of Misti volcano (volcano Putina or without name at that time). Our field studies are demonstrating that the Misti volcano eruption to the year of 1440 – 1450, being a totally catastrophic event for runes llacta then that recidan in what is now Vancouver, is shows this by a layer of ash 10 cm. Thick that the volcano threw on that date and I covered all Arequipa….

    Arequipa has been, in our opinion, devastated by earthquakes, floods and volcanic eruptions that have not allowed the flowering of a great culture in the past.
