Commentary & Analysis
L. A. Marzulli
I am a Watchman, not a prophet and the reason why I’m bringing this up is to clarify the following statements I will make. First, these comments should not be regarded as prophecy and certainly not; thus saith the Lord! These are my personal reflections based on years of watching.
With that in mind let’s take a look at some subjects for our rumination…
I am choosing a question and answer format, just like I do when I interview people each month for the new magazine, except I’m posing and answering the questions!
1. Will we see a UFO finally manifest for the world to see? In other words will there finally be the revealing of the so-called extraterrestrial presence?
L.A.: In Watchers 7, we interviewed Stephen Bassett, the organizer for, The Citizens Hearing on Disclosure. It was a fascinating interview and one of the more cogent points Bassett brought up was he believed at some point the president of the United States would reveal the so-called extraterrestrial presence.
There is a clip of Paul Hellyer, the former secretary of defense for the Canadian government who is speaking at Bassett’s Disclosure hearing in Washington D.C., Hellyer states, UFOs are as real as the airplanes flying overhead.
This is a cogent statement with staggering implications. Hellyer is announcing to the world that the phenomena is real and it should be taken seriously.
With that statement in mind, I would point out that I have consistently believed “they” will reveal themselves after a great war erupts in the Middle East and “nukes” are used. While this should be viewed as a scenario, it’s the one that I have embraced—along with the late David Flynn—and believe will transpire in the days ahead. Consider this, if there is a nuclear event in the Middle East it will, in my opinion, create the greatest collective fear humankind has ever experienced and one unique dynamic to this is this, we will all experience the event together; as the world is linked up via the satellites orbiting the earth. This type of communication is unprecedented and I believe sets the world up to receive the one known as the Son of Perdition or The Antichrist.
Last October 2013, over 2,000 UFOs were reported which may be a record. This figure is up 100% from the 1,000 sightings which were reported in April.
Something is going on and as Hellyer puts it so succinctly, UFOs are as real as the airplanes flying overhead.
The so-called revealing of the extraterrestrial presence is coming, and when it does it will be the ultimate game changer.
2. Will there be a war in the Middle East?
L. A.: We have witnessed the so-called Arab Spring overthrow the old guard, in places like Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt. As of this writing over 100,000 Syrians have been killed in what remains an ongoing bloody civil war which has further destabilized the region. Massacres and atrocities have become the norm as people are butchered, in some cases like cattle. In Iraq, week after week scores of people are blown up in suicide bombings and car bombs, in what the main stream media labels “sectarian violence.” However, this is a misleading statement as the reality is this, the violence is the results of the schism between the dominant form of Islam the Sunni’s, and the lesser sect, Shias, which began 1,300 years ago.
This infighting between the sects of Islam, take the heat off of Israel, at least for the moment, however, the Middle East is poised for a regional conflict and at some point it will happen. In Lebanon, Hezbollah has perhaps upward of 100,000 missiles, many of which have been retrofitted and are capable of hitting Tel Aviv. Iran continues it’s saber rattling toward Israel, and Bashar Al Assad has stated he will attack Israel if he is threatened by an International military force.
I believe war is eminent for the region and it’s just a matter of time before it manifests.
3. Will Bashar al Assad be overthrown in Syria?
L.A.: Assad has managed to hold on to the reigns of power in spite of the ongoing civil war which has plagued the country and killed upwards of 100,000 people. Assad was accused of using chemical weapons and the US President Obama, almost led us in to WWIII, as he wanted to bomb Syria.
Russian President, Vladimir Putin intervened and war was averted. Syria remains a very unstable element in the Middle East as hundreds of thousands of civilians have already fled the country, going to Jordan and Turkey which are not equipped to deal with the upsurge of refugees. Added to this is the growing power of regional war lords who are carving out a piece of the Syrian pie for themselves. Then there’s the atrocities committed by both the rebel fighters as well as Assad’s forces, as people are massacred like cattle in Syrian villages. The situation remains grave, unstable, and volatile. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-25557989
4. Will Iran attain nuclear power?
L. A.: The short answer is this: Not if the Israeli’s have any say in the matter! President Benjamin Netanyahu has stated that Iran poses an existential threat to Israel and in my opinion, he knows of what he speaks. Iranians assemble every Friday and chant, Death to America! Death to Israel! I believe the Iranians have several goals. The first is to wipe Israel off the map and the second is to claim the sacred Moslem sites of Mecca and Medina, which are currently controlled by the Saudi’s.
There is also the possibility of the Iranians engaging in some sort of dirty bomb, or EMP bomb over the United States as in their eyes we are The Great Satan. If this happens it would put us back in pre-industrial revolution times. In other words, life as we know it would change drastically as cars, refrigerators, toasters, cell phones would not work. There would be massive loss of life. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran_and_weapons_of_mass_destruction
5. Will the Dollar finally collapse?
L. A.: As of this writing—the end of 2013—we are over 17 trillion dollars in debt and that debt grows every day with no end in site. At some point the financial house of cards must collapse. We saw what I believe is a harbinger of the coming collapse in Cyprus this year, where millions of dollars in peoples private savings accounts, were seized by the government. This is out and out robbery and before you say, it can’t happen here, think again. Just before WWII, it was a crime to hoard gold coins. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_Order_6102
The government can do as they please and seems the American people lie down and take it. Our currency used to be issued in silver certificates. In other words the paper currency was backed up by gold and silver.
Nixon, took us off the gold standard and now our paper currency is just that, paper. In other words it’s not backed up by anything and in essence is not worth the paper it’s printed on if the dollar collapses.
There is also talk, among the conspiracy crowd, about an orchestrated collapse of the dollar, to usher in Martial law and the New World Order. The Alex Jones groupies are well versed in this and I too have followed the warnings from Jones for a number of years. Could it happen? Of course it could. Think about it for a minute, this administration has brought us: Ben Ghazi, Fast and Furious, You-can-Keep-Your-Doctor- Health care, The NSA scandal, endless war, record debt and torture at Gitmo. Why should we trust anything that comes from these weasels?
6. Will the US be attacked again?
L. A.: A few weeks ago there was a map showing how and where Chinese submarines would fire their ballistic missiles and essentially “nuke” the United States. This begs the question, why are they showing us this on a Monday morning?
America has many enemies and still, after 12 years our southern border remains porous. As I stated years ago when Obamacare was ramrodded down the throats of the American people, if you want to see how Obamacare will look, all one need do is examine our “fence” on the southern border. We can’t complete a fence, so how can this same government manage the health care for 300 million people?
With this in mind, what has come across the border since 911? What came over before 911? As I wrote in Politics, Prophecy and the Supernatural, it seems reasonable to assume dirty nukes may have been smuggled across the souther border and brought to cities somewhere in the US. We know that Osama Bin Laden was given a Fatwa—religious decree—to use weapons of mass destruction against women and children and non-combatants. A portion of the Islamic world—think organizations like the Moslem Brotherhood, Hezbollah, HAMAS—hate our way of life, despise democracy, and call for Jihad against the west. While it may only be a small percentage of the Islamic population as a whole, if one considers there are over 1.4 Billion Moslems living on this planet, then even 10% who are radicalized—I’m being conservative with this estimate—would mean over 100 million who ascribe to the way of Jihad. That’s 1/3 of the US population. All it would take is a dirty bomb going off in one of our cities and the government would declare Martial law, shut down interstate travel, and put a curfew on all Americans? Don’t think it can happen here? Look what happened in Boston this year when one 19 year old “terrorist” held the city at bay, while SWAT teams, and the army rolled into Boston, reminding me of Hitler rolling into Austria, just before the onset of WWII. http://www.thepropheticyears.com/comments/Imminent%20danger%201%20-%20Electromagnetic%20Pulse%20explosion%20(EMP)%20over%20the%20United%20States.htm
7. Will the Arab Spring continue?
L. A.: The Arab Spring is still alive and well, although it appears that both the Kings of Jordan and Saudi Arabia have managed to dodge the bullet, as it were and hold to their power base. Syria—see above questions #3—is still reeling from the ongoing civil war there.
Egypt’s army as well as millions of Egyptians threw the Moslem Brotherhood out of power and now former president elect Morsi, is on trial! I show a clip where the Moslem Brotherhood is rallying for Morsi and the Imam, Highazi, is yelling Jerusalem will be the capital of the United Arab States! Then the crowd breaks into chanting: To Jerusalem we go martyrs in the millions. How does Israel reason with people like this? They can’t!
The youth in many Middle Eastern countries are disillusioned by the status quo and long for some sort of western democracy, however, as I have pointed out numerous times, there is no pathway to a Jeffersonian form of Democracy from Islam.
A case could be made that the protestant reformation was the spring board to the freedoms we enjoy today in America.
The Moslem Brotherhood has stated they want Sharia law, which is a return to 14th century Islamic jurisprudence, where women have no rights, minorities of different religions are persecuted, capital punishment, as well as dismemberment for crimes are carried out publicly and Jihad is a way of life. In spite of what many pundits are saying I believe the Arab Spring is far from over, in my opinion so we need to keep a watchful eye on developments there.
8. Will Jesus return in 2014?
L. A.: Let’s hope so! We all anticipate and long to see the day of His coming! This is our blessed hope, and as Paul tells us, all of creation groans in anticipation! I believe we are in the season of birth pains that Jesus warns us of. We see the ongoing signs of wars and rumors of wars, famines, pestilence, earthquakes in diverse places and troublesome times. The place to watch is Israel as I believe most of the prophecies in the Bible, yet to be fulfilled are centered around the Jewish nation.
We are told by Jesus, when we see these things come upon the earth, those I mentioned above, we are to look up, as our redemption, His coming, is near.
9. Will there be an eruption of a super-volcano somewhere on the planet?
L. A.: A few years ago the Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupted sending a plume of ash into the atmosphere which closed air traffic for about a week in Europe. There are two other volcanos in Iceland which are actually far more serious should they erupt, the Katla and the Bárðarbunga.
The later is what is considered a super volcano and if it erupted could cause a massive cloud of ash, which would then travel world-wide blocking out the sun and essentially creating what scientists call, nuclear winter.
This would mean that crops would not grow and thus food production would fail, which could lead to world-wide famine. This is why I am always harping on folks stockpiling food and water. Volcanos have erupted before, the last big one which impacted the world was Krakatua http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1883_eruption_of_Krakatoa which went off in 1883 and impacted weather patterns all over the world for years.
In the US we have the super volcano known as Yellowstone caldera and if it erupted it would completely take out most of the western states, resulting in life as we know coming to a grinding halt.
Volcanos are unpredictable and thus it is a wild card in when considering the global end-time prophetic mix.
Your closing thoughts!
L. A.: I believe we are in the last days. How much will we see before the church is taken out? It’s anyones guess, but with the signs we are seeing, I would venture to say, we are already in way over our heads!
Think about it, sightings of UFOs are increasing every month, the 7.0 earthquake seems to be the new normal, comets are seen, the sun will flip over soon, there are also four blood moons this year, 2014 and in 2015 that fall on the Jewish feast days, animal and fish die-offs continue and then there’s Fukushima, which is leaking radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean.
These are certainly uncertain times. However, the good news is we were told ahead of time by Jesus, what to expect in the last days. While some people in the church sleep and others outside aren’t even aware of the prophecies in the Bible, we should be diligent to warn of not only what is here but what is coming.
Jesus warns us:
Even the elect would be deceived, if that were possible.
Men faint from fear from what is coming upon the earth.
Unless those days were shortened no flesh would survive.
With that in mind we should live soberly and expectantly in anticipation for the King’s return…..
