Why So Many Americans Are Leaving Their Religion

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/why-so-many-americans-are-leaving-their-religion_us_57bf661ee4b04193420e6df0

Fifty years ago, a whopping 98 percent of Americans said they believed in God. Now, roughly half of those who have left religion behind say they simply stopped believing.

First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. “Where is the promise of His coming? they will ask. “Ever since our fathers fell asleep, everything continues as it has from the beginning of creation.” 5But they deliberately overlook the fact that long ago by God’s word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water,… 2 Peter: 3,4

In my opinion, this headline above is another sign of the times. When we read the scripture above—and remember it was penned almost 2000 years ago—these words of Peter’s seem to jump off the page at us, in what I believe are the last days.
There are many people who scoff at the Bible, at the hope many of us find in Jesus. They are scoffers and in fact a case can be made that many of them follow their own evil desires.
Think of the people who are hooked on mind-altering drugs. I know a young women who is just turning 21.
She smokes pot every day but doesn’t think she’s a drug addict. She scoffs at Jesus, at Christians, at the truth of the Biblical Prophetic Narrative that has brought billions of people hope, through almost 2000 years since it was compiled.
She is a scoffer and because she smokes pot every day, which by the way is likened to witch-craft, she is following her own evil desires. This might sound harsh to some of you and yet, in my opinion, it demonstrates, perhaps in an-all-to-real-way, what I would call the lateness of the hour.
Where is the promise of His coming… of His return?
I would posit that many people have lost faith and one of the reasons for this is that most churches do not teach the prophetic word. They actually stay away from it and in some cases stay away from it  at all costs.
Many people who attend church have no idea of the myriad of prophecies that are shaping up in these last days. I would also put forth that these prophecies, like the Psalm 83 war, and Ezekiel 38, may be fulfilled soon.
They are unaware of our blessed hope, in the return of our King, Jesus. They don’t understand the difference between the church age, the rebirth of the nation of Israel and the soon to be the 7-year-period—the Tribulation— where once again God will deal with Israel and the Jews.
Many churches never sit still and wait on the Lord. They’re afraid to let the Spirit of the Living God come in to the church.
Prayer is almost nonexistent with perhaps less than a minute in most churches. There is a disconnect from anything supernatural. For the most part the church today has a form of religion but denies it’s power.
This is why many of our young people are flocking to the occult and to mind-altering drugs. They are looking for a supernatural experience and not finding it in the churches are seeking it in The New Age, In Yoga, in eastern mysticism, and in mind-altering drugs like LSD and Ayahuasca.
That being said, there are great men who have laid their lives down for the sheep. These are the pastors who struggle daily to bring the word to their flocks. Bully for them.
In closing todays post. The article above is a poignant reminder of how late the hour may be. We’re right on schedule as what was written will come to pass. What was foretold will unfold.

Conference update…

It is good for the brethren to dwell together. It is like oil dipping down Aaron’s bear… Proverbs

The Prophecy Watchers Conference has been just amazing, as over 1000 people have attended. The speakers are passionate and Gary Stearman, Tom Horn and Bob Ulrich opened the conference with an uplifting, positive message of hope pointing to the return of the King, Jesus!
We  have had numerous people, to many to count, come to our table telling us how our ministry has changed their lives, got their loved ones saved, and awakened them out of their complacency. In some cases people have stated that our films and books connected parts of the Bible that had been difficult for them to understand, especially the Nephilim.
When I hear reports like this I mentally cast my crown before the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, as it is His doing and He gets the glory.
That being said it’s humbling to hear that we’re making an impact on people’s lives but at the same time it’s rewarding and very reaffirming. It also explains why we are under such constant attack from the enemy!
The folks have been great and I’ve had many conversations in the last three days and finally was able to put faces with emails!
The one unifying factor is everyone’s deep love for Jesus. Another unifying factor is most everyone is expectant, looking for the return of the King, His second coming.
I delivered two messages to a packed house. One on Friday night the other last night. Friday night I revealed the strange creature that Jaime Massuan showed us in Mexico City, the Catalina Island cover up, the Afghan giant and the long-awaited DNA test results, which by the way are still ongoing.
Last night I talked on the Days of Chaos i.e. the signs that Jesus warned us about that would occur before His return are all firing now. He admonishes us that when we see these things come to pass our redemption draweth nigh!  In other words, look Up! There’s a rescue coming and it’s called the Rapture of the church.
The people were enthusiastic and very responsive both nights and I want to thank Gary, Tom and Bob for allowing me the privilege to speak to the folks.
In some ways it’s a foreshadow of what we will experience when we get to heaven.
How wonderful it is for the  brothers to dwell in unity!

We are going through some spiritual attacks and I sent out a prayer request and this was Pastor Caspar’s response.

The Lord lead the Israelite’s into a trap at the Red Sea. Then the Lord provided a miraculous escape and He shall for you as well. Pastor Caspar McCloud
So here’s the take-a-way.
When we’re up against it and circumstances in our lives leave no way out. When we are hemmed in on every side and the situation seems hopeless and from the natural man’s point of view, it is!
Father God knows what is going on. He will not forsake us or abandon us, even unto the end of the age!
Jesus of Nazareth warns us:  In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
This should be a word of warning to all of us, in other words we should expect to have trouble come upon us at some point in our lives. Who amongst us has not had “trouble?”
Please take a moment and contrast the above verse with the prosperity Gospel which is preached today.
We need the whole counsel of God and not just that parts that tell us: we will like and life more abundantly.
So the Israelites are up against the Red Sea and there is no escaping the Egyptian army, who are riding in chariots.
A chariot, in the ancient world, was like a modern-day tank. In other words there’s no way, in the natural, that the Israelites can defend themselves. The situation does indeed look dire.
Then, God intervenes and the waters part. They stand up like a heap. It’s a supernatural answer to the problem and it defies rational, period.
Nothing has changed in thousands of years.
God’s people can be pinned down in a corner, with the “red-sea” at our backs and nowhere to go.
When this happens to us, we lift our eyes to the maker of heaven and earth. We fast and pray and call upon the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. We cry out to our redeemer, our savior who lives and sits at the right hand of the Father, interceding for us.
We go to The Rock, which is higher than ourselves and cast our cares upon Him because: He remembers our frame and He knows we are but dust. 
Please take a moment and read the story below. There is a God who can and will part the red-sea in our lives and give us a way out, even when it appears hopeless.

 Exodus 14

14 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Tell the Israelites to turn back and encamp near Pi Hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea. They are to encamp by the sea, directly opposite Baal Zephon. Pharaoh will think, ‘The Israelites are wandering around the land in confusion, hemmed in by the desert.’ And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will pursue them. But I will gain glory for myself through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord.” So the Israelites did this.

When the king of Egypt was told that the people had fled, Pharaoh and his officials changed their minds about them and said, “What have we done? We have let the Israelites go and have lost their services!” So he had his chariot made ready and took his army with him. He took six hundred of the best chariots, along with all the other chariots of Egypt, with officers over all of them. The Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, so that he pursued the Israelites, who were marching out boldly. The Egyptians—all Pharaoh’s horses and chariots, horsemen[a] and troops—pursued the Israelites and overtook them as they camped by the sea near Pi Hahiroth, opposite Baal Zephon.

10 As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up, and there were the Egyptians, marching after them. They were terrified and cried out to the Lord. 11 They said to Moses, “Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt? 12 Didn’t we say to you in Egypt, ‘Leave us alone; let us serve the Egyptians’? It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!”

13 Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14 The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

15 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. 16 Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground. 17 I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians so that they will go in after them. And I will gain glory through Pharaoh and all his army, through his chariots and his horsemen. 18 The Egyptians will know that I am the Lord when I gain glory through Pharaoh, his chariots and his horsemen.”

19 Then the angel of God, who had been traveling in front of Israel’s army, withdrew and went behind them. The pillar of cloud also moved from in front and stood behind them, 20 coming between the armies of Egypt and Israel. Throughout the night the cloud brought darkness to the one side and light to the other side; so neither went near the other all night long.

21 Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, 22 and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.

23 The Egyptians pursued them, and all Pharaoh’s horses and chariots and horsemenfollowed them into the sea. 24 During the last watch of the night the Lord looked down from the pillar of fire and cloud at the Egyptian army and threw it into confusion. 25 He jammed[b]the wheels of their chariots so that they had difficulty driving. And the Egyptians said, “Let’s get away from the Israelites! The Lord is fighting for them against Egypt.”

26 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may flow back over the Egyptians and their chariots and horsemen.” 27 Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and at daybreak the sea went back to its place. The Egyptians were fleeing toward[c] it, and the Lord swept them into the sea. 28 The water flowed back and covered the chariots and horsemen—the entire army of Pharaoh that had followed the Israelites into the sea. Not one of them survived.

29 But the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left. 30 That day the Lord saved Israel from the hands of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians lying dead on the shore. 31 And when the Israelites saw the mighty hand of the Lord displayed against the Egyptians, the people feared the Lord and put their trust in him and in Moses his servant.

The last time I was at Prophecy Watchers, Gary Stearman walked up to me, looked me right in the eye and said, L.A., God is love! Then he walked away! LOL!

His short statement got me thinking and I’ve been ruminating on it ever since.

God is love.

How precious is your steadfast love, O God. Psalm 36: 7

Then there’s the verse that most of us know by heart: For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

One of the realizations I came to dwelling on these statements was the fact that I don’t love as much, as often and as liberally as I should. Of course this is something that I can’t contour up. The Spirit of the Living God has to remind me, and fill me with His agape love, a love that we hear about in the 13th chapter of first Corinthians. So I’ll let the words of Paul reach out to us from almost 2000 years ago, which are far better than anything I could write here. God is love and as Jesus admonished His disciples just before his agony on Calvary…

34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35

Love should be the calling card of every Christian….

1 Corinthians 13

13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poorand give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

 

 

I’ve heard some pastors say that the Bible is a love story and I agree with this.

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!

Sunday Go to Meeting Bun – Recovery Time….

Bun

I was rear ended on Friday by a 30 foot delivery truck. I was stopped at a light listening to a Gary Stearman lecture on the Supernatural, when the guy in the truck plowed into me. He never hit his breaks. The collision was very violent and it moved my 24 year-old-tank of a car—the steel frame saved me—into the car in front of me. My hat flew off my head and landed in the backseat.

When I got out of the car and examined the damage my heart sank, as I realized that the car was most likely totaled. About 5 minutes later pain began in my lower  left back, left shoulder and left knee.  The tow-truck came and I sat in the passenger seat as we towed my car about 20 miles to the body shop. I made small talk with the driver, as I began to sink into depression.

Peggy met me at the shop and we went to the Urgent Care, where a doctor checked me out. I didn’t need X-rays, as I had a full range of motion.

When we got home I braced myself for the pain, that I heard would most likely happen the day after the accident. I sank lower into a funk. By the next morning I had hit bottom.

I went for a two-mile run and the Holy Spirit reminded me of what my first mentor—and the man whom I dedicated The Cosmic Chess Match too—Wayne Kendal, taught me 36 years ago. It was one of the first lessons I learned from him. It was about recovery time. (I’m not talking about physical recovery time from an injury)

Here’s the gist of it. Stuff happens in everybody’s life, we are told in our Bibles that in the world we will have trouble but that Jesus overcame the world. (I’m paraphrasing)

In other words I was overwhelmed by the accident, the violence of it, the fact that my car was most likely totaled. The realization that the insurance company wasn’t going to give me what the car is worth as I had restored it to mint condition. I began to feel sorry for myself and as I stated I got depressed, bummed out, self-centered, self obsessed, petulant and I wanted to move far away and disappear…

So maybe I’m overreacting here, but I’m being honest. The low point was the next morning before the run.

I went to my running spot, stretched out and did a two-mile run a t a good clip. During the run, as I mentioned earlier, the Holy Spirit began to speak and He reminded me of Wayne’s instructions so long ago. I asked myself, how long was I going to remain in my self-induced funk? A day? A week? A month or a year….?

In other words this where the recovery time becomes crucial for  us. Fortunately my recovery time was less than 24 hours and I began to pray asking the Lord to forgive my attitude and then the peace came.

Notice I didn’t get another car. The circumstances hadn’t changed an iota, but my attitude did, as I gave it over in prayer to Jesus, the Prince of Peace.

We have free will. I could have stayed in the bummed-out-mindset for who knows how long, and in fact many of us do just this. We allow the circumstances to dictate how we think and feel. They cloud our thinking rule our emotions.

The good news is when we release whatever it is, in prayer, the peace that the world can not give floods our souls. 

It’s all about recovery time. If Wayne were still here he would have grinned at me  said: Very good Marzulli…

I want to thank all of you who prayed for me as I truly believe the reason there is no lingering pain is because of the prayers that went to the throne room in my behalf.

One last item. The night of the accident there were three fires, close to us that surrounded us. They were all put out, but Peggy and I found it really weird. Coincidence? I think not.

The enemy hates us and comes to rob, kill and destroy. This is why we put on armor daily and wash our minds by the renewing of the word.

The Opening Ceremony of the World’s Largest Tunnel Was a Bizarre Occult Ritual

Thanks to Vigilant Citizen!

Some Will Depart from the Faith

Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons,
1 Timothy 4:1English Standard Version (ESV)

leadgottard2This is where we are in 2016, a world filled with pagan images and occult themes. Departing from the faith? You bet. I would put to you that it is a departure, from the faith, on steroids and the goat-god, Baphomet, is being worshipped as the god of this world.

What is important to remember is the above verse was penned almost 2000 years ago and its prophetic implications are now coming to fulfillment.

What was written will come to pass. What was foretold will unfold. L.A.M.

Who crafted this spectacle and why? The images are dark and disturbing and, in my opinion, lavish praise on god of the occult world.

Europe has lost its Christian roots. It didn’t take long, only a generation from when the counter-culture overturned the prevailing Christian paradigm and the Hippie era—of which i was a part—departed from the faith of our fathers and embraced the new age, Hinduism, Eastern mysticism  and the occult.

Russ Dizdar states that the 60’s bought about the explosion and access of occult literature in history. In essence this influx changed many peoples world view and brought about the new age movement which we see everywhere today.

SIDE BAR: There is no such thing as Christian Yoga. The positions that people learn and practice represent ways of opening up the Chakras—the supposed energy centers that run up and down the spinal column—which in turn opens the practinioer up to the Kundalini serpent spirit. Yoga is taught and practiced and practically every city in the USA and many Christians insist that it has nothing to do with the occult. I would beg to differ as the root of it is steeped in Hinduism.

BACK TO THE OPENING CEREMONY: I would love to sit down with the person (s) who choreographed the show and find out what their world view is.  I’m willing to bet it is pagan in nature, as the images, characters, costumes and overt sexuality—including homo-erotica—are openly displayed.

In closing todays Bun: This opening ceremony is just another indicator as to how far down the rabbit hole we are. The world is poised to embrace another god than the god of the Bible. We are warned in 2nd Thessalonians that there will be a departure from the faith. The word used is apostasy. While some pundits declare this refers to the rapture of the church, I respectfully disagree. The Greek word is apostasia.

Strong’s Concordance 646. apostasia
apostasia: defection, revolt

Original Word: ἀποστασία, ας, ἡ
Part of Speech: Noun, Feminine
Transliteration: apostasia
Phonetic Spelling: (ap-os-tas-ee’-ah)
Short Definition: defection, apostasy
Definition: defection, apostasy, revolt.

Aren’t we seeing the beginning of this apostasy now? In my opinion we are. However, it’s going to get much worse and when the supernatural begins to really manifest—the so-called alien/UFO revealing—this will bring about The Great Deception.
 NOW THE SPIRIT EXPRESSLY SAYS THAT IN LATER TIMES SOME WILL DEPART FROM THE FAITH BY DEVOTING THEMSELVES TO DECEITFUL SPIRITS AND TEACHINGS OF DEMONS,  We’re here….
