Commentary & Analysis
L. A. Marzulli
I often ask myself if I could back in time and visit just one day, in the past, which day would it be?
First off, for me it wouldn’t be sailing with Christopher Columbus, or seeing the construction of the Great pyramid—although that would be really eye-opening—or being present at the signing of the Declaration of Independence. While those aforementioned times in history would be interesting I wouldn’t choose to visit them.
Being a Christian for some 36 years now, and reading and re-reading the good news that we find in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, I would be hard pressed to decide on one of the stories that we read about to journey back in time and visit.
Would I choose the raising of Lazarus? Can you imagine the intensity of such a profound moment, as Lazarus who had been dead and buried in the tomb for three days is called forth?
What about being aboard the boat on the Sea of Galilee, which is about to sink from the storm that has come from nowhere and threatens to capsize the vessel? Jesus is asleep in the boat and when he is awakened by his disciples he rebukes the storm with two words, be still! Instantly the storm with its howling winds and large waves is gone. It becomes like a limp rag, the moment Jesus calls for it cease. As the disciples would remark: while even the wind and the waves obey him!
How about the casting out of the Legion of Demons that possesses the man of the tombs? This possessed man had terrorized the surrounding town for who knows how long. Jesus commands then to leave and they obey him. What is remarkable is this. The demons call out to Jesus before He casts them out, not to send them into the pit as it’s not their time yet. Jesus has mastery over the supernatural world.
The feeding of the multitudes where Jesus takes a few small fish and a loaf of bread and after He blesses it the disciples distribute the food, feeding the 5000 who are sitting there. How did that work? Do the fish just appear from nowhere? I would love to have been there watching!
What about when Jesus walks on the water! This is certainly one of the more playful aspects of His time here on earth. He’s out for an “evening stroll” and the disciples, when they see Him, think He’s a ghost. I believe this is deliberate on Jesus’ part as he’s always taking the disciples out of their comfort zones and his walking on the water, certainly does that!
Then there’s the brutality of the crucifixion, with its shame, and torture. The Bible tells us darkness covered the land for three hours. Calvary, or Golgotha—the place of the skull—is the center point of history, as everything changes there at the moment of His death and the Fallen Cherub is defeated!
The ground shakes and the dead are seen walking in the streets of Jerusalem. And then there’s the group of men and women who remove Him from the cross and hastily bury him in a rich mans’ tomb. Incredible.
How about the glory of the resurrection, as the stone that sealed the tomb is rolled away by an angel! The Roman soldiers fall to the ground, as if dead and the one who paid the price for all mankind sin, who shed His blood for us, the Messiah, the Prince of Peace, the Lord of Lord’s, emerges from the tomb.
in closing todays Bun. It’s hard for me to pick just one day, and there are other days when Jesus walked the earth that vie for position. The healing of the Lepers, the Triumphal entry, the last supper, the woman caught in adultery, to name a few.
Perhaps after we rise to meet Him in the air and things calm down a bit after He rides to earth, with the armies of heaven on flying white horses, there’s a place where we can “rent” a cosmic DVD of the events of His life while He was on earth….. I’d be the first in line!
While the chaos continues on our southern border and the arrogant IRS “Clown” continues to tap dance around the issue of six computer hard drives crashing at the same time, the Middle East is undergoing what may be the nascent beginnings of WWIII and the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy.
Specifically Isaiah 17, Psalm 83—See Bill Salus http://www.prophecydepotministries.net — and or, Ezekiel 38 & 39.
Distraction is in full gear at the moment, here in the states, Nancy Pelosi has graced our southern border with her presence, welcoming the illegal aliens with open arms and declaring them to be Americans! God help us!
To see the absurdity of this, why not bus about 3000 US citizens to let’s say, Tijuana, and ask for amnesty and see what happens!
I’m sure the Mexican government would put them all in jail and deport them! While this latest insanity from the Obama administration is cause for alarm it is, in my opinion, a distraction!
The real news, is the spreading of the radical army of ISIL which if it continues will affect the world’s oil supply and completely destabilize the Middle East.
Maps are important and show us at a glance the situation in Iraq, Syria and what threatens Jordan, and lastly Saudi Arabia.
First of all, ISIS should be ISIL. Islamic State of Syria and the Levant.
The Levant includes the nation of Israel, so perhaps it is a deliberate mis-translation by our media, to fudge the anagram from ISIL to ISIS.
ISIL has made it very clear they wish to establish an Islamic Caliphate which would include Syria, Iraq, Jordan,Lebanon and Israel.
That is their goal and they are in the process of implementing all available resources to accomplish it. Hence the “L” in the anagram is Levant, and should be a wake up call! This radical Islamists group has its eyes set on Jerusalem. Remember what the radical cleric Highazi stated, Jerusalem will be the capital of the new United Arab States. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QI3wG3loKlA
As we can see by the Map, ISIL has made significant advances into the Quagmire of sectarian violence that is Iraq. ISIL has called for the head of the Jordanian King, Abdullah, so he’s going to have to respond to the very real threat on his border.
The ISIL terrorists see Jordan’s Western-backed King Abdullah as an enemy of Islam and an infidel, and have publicly called for his execution. ISIL terrorists recently posted a video on YouTube in which they threatened to “slaughter” Abdullah, whom they denounced as a “tyrant.”
Jordan has a treaty with Israel and the USA and according to the DEBKA file, this is being honored with a force of 12,000 US soldiers backed up by our air force.
Our Washington sources report that Brig. Gen. Dennis McKean, commander of the joint US-Jordanian-Israeli underground Centcom-Forward war room established near Amman, has already received instructions to place the 12,000 US soldiers and USAF F-16 fighter squadron positioned in Jordan on the ready.
In closing todays post. The situation remains unstable and serious as ISIL continues to expand its territory. The prophecies of the Bible seem to be ready to be fulfilled right before our eyes. There are those who claim to be Christians and yet know nothing of prophecy, instead substituting the prophetic words in our Bible, with their own private visions and revelations. They place these visions over what was written thousands of years ago by the prophets and even dismiss the words of Jesus as being to negative. We are warned by our Messiah, Jesus, the one who died for all humanity, the coming King, there would be wars and rumors of war. If we believe in Him, how then can we then neglect such a dire warning. The unfulfilled prophecies of Psalm 83, Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38, loom in front of us as ISIL, carves up swaths of the Middle East claiming the territory for its own. The distraction continues, but for those of us who have eyes to see and ears to hear, the coming of our Lord must be soon and before it does, we will great Him in the air! When you see these things begin to happen look up, because you’re redemption draws nigh!

See NOW what the Lamsa Bible’s Luke 21:11 was talking about, concerning arrival (RETURN !) of Messiah, Son of David – as translated from the ORIGINAL Aramaic.
(THAT LAST PHRASE IS OMITTED IN OUR WESTERN BIBLES)
This was sent to me last night by author and former guest on Acceleration Radio, Robert Reiland. It is from the Lamsa Bible, which is a translation from the Aramaic. I do not have this translation but I’m ordering it from AMAZON right after I finish this post.
You will notice below a series of stories, which are all, weather-related. The theme on the front page of the Drudge Report this morning showed a cluster of blooming daffodils, surrounded by a blanket of snow. DRUDGE REPORT 2013®
There are those who will look at these events and shrug them off and thus, will not pay attention to the signs that were given to us almost 2000 years ago by Jesus.
The passage of scripture above is attributed to Jesus when He is asked about the end of days. We see Him give us a list of signs to watch for, and the last sign – from the Lamsa translation – tells us the winters will be severe. (Look at the links below!)
I believe the signs are here for those of us who have eyes to see. However, the vast majority of people are choosing to ignore them. Remember the Democratic convention this summer when delegates booed when God was brought back in to the party platform? Democrats BOO GOD At Convention – YouTube Talk about ignoring God? They don’t want Him! That being established, why do we believe these same knuckleheads will have any solution to the problems we face as a nation, as they deny the one who could help us out of the morass we find ourselves in?
The signs are all around us as we see wars and rumors of wars; think of the ongoing conflict in the Middle East, which is a very complex situation as the Russians added 18 warships parked off Syria, to the fray. Think of the Moslem Brotherhood rallying millions in Tahrir Square, Egypt, and chanting, “to Jerusalem we go, martyrs in the millions.”
Think of the current wave of flu which is sweeping the USA, or the AIDS virus which has killed millions in Africa, or the ongoing earthquakes that rumble all over the earth; the 7.0 earthquake has become the new normal. Scroll down and read the story about the BIG ONE coming to California.
In closing todays post: In my opinion, these signs are the birth-pains we are told to look for before the return of Jesus. They are very specific signs and we see them manifesting in real-time now. I believe He is coming soon. Do you know Him? I’m not talking about “religion” or a church with candles burning and monks with funny haircuts, stain glass windows, and dark, creepy confessionals.
Knowing Him is a real relationship with the God of the Universe, for through Him, Jesus, all things were created. He is knocking on the door of your heart, open it and He will come in. Ask and you shall receive. He came to set the captives free. He is good and He loves us. At some point in the future we will be gathered to Him in the air, caught up to Him just as the letter from Paul tells us will happen and we will be with Him forever. As we see the signs of His coming manifesting, comfort one another with these words, for He is coming soon….

1Cr 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal [must] put on immortality.
1Th 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Harold Camping is a false prophet, a false teacher. I was on Coast to Coast with George Noory on Friday night and stated that there would be no rapture or end-of-the-world-scenario, on May 21. I didn’t have a shred of doubt that Camping’s prediction wouldn’t happen. I take umbrage in the fact that Camping’s rants obfuscate the work that real watchman, like Matthew Miller, Bruce Collins, Richard Grund, Stan Deyo, Russ Dizdar, yours truly, and others do on a daily basis. As I have stated before, I believe that we are in the birth pangs. What is dangerous about men like Camping is that the media got hold of this and had a field day, as stories were posted in much of the major media outlets. May I suggest that this event was Satanically anointed? It accomplished a lot for the kingdom of darkness in that those of us who are really trying to sound a warning will be lumped in with that “kook,” Camping.
I believe in the Rapture and the reason I do is because the above verses tell me that an event will happen, a mystery, something that is concealed and then at the appropriate time will be revealed and we will be changed in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye. Changed to what? To our new incorruptible, heavenly bodies! It would appear from the text above that this event will happen at some point. NOTE: Please refrain from arguing as to when this will happen! PLEASE!
I closing todays BUN, I will tell you a waking vision that I received a while back. I have posted it before but will do so here again. First off, I don’t get many of these, and it’s not something that I seek or cultivate in any way. It was a gift from the Lord, in my opinion.
I was getting ready to go into the shower and then I was taken, as Paul says whether in the body or out of the body I don’t know, but I was in a “heavenly” scene and I was in the air. There were people all around me spaced about 20 feet apart, we were not packed in like sardines! There was a holy silence as everyone who was there, knew exactly where we were, what had happened…. we had risen to meet the Lord in the air! It was a holy, reverential silence. I was there for about 3 seconds. 1. I find myself in the Heavenly scene. 2, The Holy reverential silence. 3, I realize that my sin nature is no longer in me! Then I’m back. It was that fast. Just think, our sin nature is gone at that point! I have to tell you that it was liberating and I noticed it almost at once…. amazing
I hold to this vision as a promise of what will come. His word is true and at some point He will gather us and we will be with Him. I do take comfort in these words. I do believe in the literal interpretation of them. Camping’s antics have caused a lot of damage. The scoffers are having a field day, some believers may have doubts in their faith. Others who follow Camping may be completely disillusioned. In the end we need to pray for those who got caught up in this false movement and we need to never back away or become silent in warning the world that we are in the birth pangs and the He really is coming soon… but no man knows the day or the hour.
