If you think you know who Jesus is but you don’t know him, you don’t know him…. L. A. Marzulli 2015

I spoke at CERO last week and we had a good crowd.  Most of these folks who came have experienced the UFO phenomena up close and personal.  They attend these meeting because there is a camaraderie there, as others have been through what they have been through.  They can talk openly about UFO sightings, or being abducted, probed, experimented on and whisked away, against their will, at all times of the day and night.

I was speaking to a man who told me I was a good showman.  I replied to him that there was no show, what I expressed in my presentation was from my core values, my worldview, the paradigm I embrace. He then asked me if I was a Christian and believed in the Christian mythos, and not missing a beat challenged me stating, if he didn’t believe in Jesus would he then be going to hell?

It’s an old argument and the other side uses it to make those of us who believe in the Biblical narrative seem foolish and petty and worse of all judgmental.

I replied by saying this to the man:  If you think you know who Jesus is but you don’t know him, you don’t know him! 

My statement stunned him and then I was able to talk about the depravity of human beings i.e. our sin.

When we step back and look at this simple statement—If you think you know who Jesus is but you don’t know him, you don’t know him!—it is true.  Here’s what I mean.

We can say we know how a car runs but unless we understand what a combustion engine is and how it works we really don’t know how the car runs.

In a similar way, there’s a lot of people out there who think they know who Yeshua/Jesus is but in reality they don’t have a clue, as they don’t know him.  They have no idea of who He is and in many cases they have never read the Biblical narrative—the Gospels—which describes all the amazing things He did while he walked with us almost 2000 years ago.  They have no personal relationship with Him.

On top of that, they have never come to grips with their own depravity, their sin, the nasty stuff we all do.  They think they have no need of a savior and so have never asked the King of Creation into their hearts to heal them, to take the pain away, to restore their souls.  Thus, they don’t know him, they are not born from above and so don’t have a clue of who He is and unless they come to Him they will in fact, die in their sins.

Are you one of those people?  Do you think He is reflected by some of the hucksters on so-called Christian TV, promising riches for a seed-faith offering?  Do you think he was a ruse from Satan to deceive the Jews into believing in a false Messiah, as many Jews are taught today? Do you think he is somehow likened to the current Pope?  Do you believe He was just a good man?  Do you equate him with something horrible that happened to you when you were in Sunday school and perhaps you were molested by your pastor, teacher or Youth group leader?

He is none of those things.  He gave up His life to redeem us and He stands at the door or your heart and knocks.  If you think you know Him but you don’t, you are missing on experinecing life more abundantly…that will continue eternally.  He loves you and knows you better than you know yourself.  Yet, if you don’t know Him, you don’t know Him.

16“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.17“For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.… John 3: 16

He is standing at the door of your heart and waiting for you to invite Him to come in…. Ask Him to forgive your nasty things, your sins and then confess with your mouth that He is who He says He is, The son of the Living God.  If you do this, then you will know Him.

There is a Remnant…

3Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, 4and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.” 5For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water,…2 Peter 3:4

world_religions_pie_chartThere are about 7 billion people on the planet and as you can see from our Pie Chart here, Christianity, at the moment claims more followers than any other religion.  So we can eliminate about 4.7 Billion people and we’re left with 2.3 billion folks who claim Christianity as their belief.

Out of the 2.3 billion how many have ever read the scripture above?  How many folks are looking for the promise of His coming?  How many folks are actually in the first camp of the verse that states:

Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, 4and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.”

There is a remnant of people who know the prophetic literature in our Bibles and eagerly look for the signs of His return.  How many of the 2.3 billion Christians are not looking?  I would put forth that out of the entire words population there may be fewer people than we think that are expectant, that are watching the signs: wars and rumors of wars, famines pestilence, earthquakes in diverse places and signs in the heavens.

Then there are those of us who are looking forward to September and wondering if world events are heralding His return and are often scoffed and mocked by other Christians!  Go figure…

Most people don’t have a clue about the blood moons, or the Shmita year.  http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/babylonbeyond/2008/09/israel-shmita-y.html Then there is the conjunction of Jupiter and Venus which some claim was the reemergence of the Star of Bethlehem.  I don’t think it was and the fact that it appeared in the 13 constellation, ophiuchus, the serpent holder, may be pointing to the advent of the anti-messiah.

Most people aren’t looking at the events in the Middle East and seeing how they line up with the prophecies of Psalm 83, which I believe is the next war we will see and Isaiah 17, the destruction of Damascus.

The Chinese stock market lost 3 TRILLION dollars last week.  We are 18 trillion in debt and now we have Jade Helm which starts soon and some believe this is a dry run for what may be the coming anarchy in America.

We live in perilous times. I wrote last week on the Sunday Bun: that the only way out of this mess may be up! The more I see the convergence of the signs we are told to look for, the more I am convinced that we are about to enter a time that us unlike any other in human history and as Yeshua warns us: Unless those days were shortened no flesh would survive.

Where is the promise of His coming?

A remnant of believers are looking with great expectation for His return.  I for one am now convinced that we have only one hope and that is in the risen savior of the world.  The One who can set all men and women free from our depravity, Yeshua, The Anointed One, who by His word created everything in the universe. He is the rightful King, The Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last.  He holds the keys of life and death.  He is the Rider on the White Horse. He is Faithful and True.  He will ride with the armies of heaven to the earth and will set up His kingdom on the earth.  Fantasy you say? Mythos?  A storybook fairytale?  Mock and scoff if you will but I hold the promise of His return closer now than ever before…. there is a remnant.

There’s no way out of this mess but up!

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. 1 Corinthians 15: 51 & 52

I realize that some folks will want to argue about this and that’s why up until this post I have never discussed the Rapture of the church.  Before I launch into the BUN today I want to make it clear, that I’m not interested in folks telling me where I’m going wrong because they hold to a mid-trib or post-trib position.  I believe in the Rapture of the church and frankly with everything that is going on we may have only one option and that’s up, hence the title of todays Blog.

Think about it for a moment, the Christian church is now hemmed in on every side.  We have our Supreme Court telling us that gay marriage is now the norm and of course this goes against what many Christians hold true, that marriage is between one man and one woman.  We have crossed a line and we are told that evil is good and good is evil.  Like Roe v. Wade there is no turning back, and 60 million aborted babies is a blood curse on our land.

We hear of the governments Jade Helm exercise, the removal of Habeas Corpus, an 18 Trillion dollar debt, endless war, the removal of the 10 commandments and separation of church and state.  We are burdened by high taxes, a bloated government who pass bills that may affect every American lives yet won’t read them before doing so, and the rise of lawlessness is everywhere.

The church slumbers even as I write this.  Not much outrage over SCOTUS legalizing gay marriage and certainly no one is demonstrating and calling for an appeal of a vote by just 5 people who overturned what I would consider “the norm” of western civilization for thousands of years.

There is a supernatural.  Our Bibles are full of stories that show us that the supernatural can intercede in the lives of men and women.  A lot of people have never experienced the supernatural power of the Living God in their lives and so they will have trouble with the verse above.  Still others will argue to the point of coming to fists over when the Harpazo—the Rapture of the Church—occurs.

I am weary of the political shenanigans of the Clinton’s and the Bush’s.  I am weary of the endless war in Afghanistan and our blood and treasure dying over there for another trillion-dollar opium harvest.  I am alarmed at the state of the world and while I pray and ask Father to have mercy on us, I am also keenly aware of the prophetic play-book which must go according to what was written thousands of years ago.  What was written will come to pass.  What was foretold will unfold.

In closing todays Bun.  My hope is this and nothing less, than Jesus Christ and righteousness.  My hope is that I will hear the trumpet blast and I will rise and meet the Lord of Hosts in the air and forevermore be with Him.  My hope is that I will go UP!  I will be translated in a twinkling of an eye.  I will shed my corrupt body with its sin nature and put on my new immortal body, free from sin.  Fantasy you say?  Believe what you want to, as for what I see happening in our world, The only way out of this mess is up!

In the meantime we should think about this: Whatever is true, whatever is noble, watever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable.  If anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think on these things.  We should practice how to do this on a daily basis and because these days are the days of chaos we should be bold to tell everyone about the Good News, Jesus has risen from the dead and we can have forgiveness of sins and eternal life.

BunSo God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27

We are all made in the image and likeness of God…. period.  The moment we move away from this fact we create the problems that face us in today’s world.

It is God who made us and in His sight we are all equal.  It doesn’t matter what the color of our skin is, or if we’re tall, or short, fat, or skinny, or blue.  It doesn’t matter.  When we look at another person, no matter what he or she looks like, we must remind ourselves that that person is made in the image and likeness of God.  If we practice this how can we have a racist bone in our bodies?  If we embrace this, how can we fall into the trap of thinking one race is superior to another?  If we set the word of God in our hearts and it allow it direct us, we will only love all we come in contact with, no matter what they look like.

We live in a broken world and last weeks shooting in Charleston was tragic.  Please keep the church and those who lost loved ones in your prayers.  One nut-case, high on drugs, given to him legally, through the Big-Pharma system, acted out of hate and I believe demonic whisperings.  There’s no other explanation.  He didn’t come into this world with this hate, he was taught it.  It was nurtured in his mind and then leached into his soul and finally he acted on it.  He sought out others who hated as well and in some way this boys’ mentors are responsible for the killings too.

Darwinism doesn’t teach equality, it expounds survival of the fittest.  In fact Hitler used Darwinism to proclaim that the Jews were of an inferior race and this eventually led to the Holocaust. (see Ben Steins movie Expelled, No Intelligence Allowed.)  What happened in the USA in regard to the slavery issue, as well as the genocide of the Native American, all stemmed from straying from this divine proclamation that all men are created in the image and likeness of God.

In last Sunday’s Bun, I discussed the question regarding how much technology would make it into the Millennial reign, when the King returns.  I would venture to say here, that there will no place for bigotry or racial hate, when the King is ruling for 1000 years.  Remember that there are billions of people here when He returns with the armies of heaven.  How will he rule?  Do we really think there is going to be secret Ku Kulx Klan meetings?  Will there be room for groups like the New Black Panthers?  Will antisemitism exist when the King himself is the Lion from the tribe of Judah?  I don’t think so.

In closing todays Bun.  The creation groans to be set free and we do as well, as we await the return of the King.  In the meantime we should look at everyone we meet, as made in the image and likeness of our creator, the one true God, Yeshua, Jesus.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  

Happy Fathers Day on the Summer Solstice – The longest day of the Year!  

House Cleaning!  NOTE!  We are waiting for the books—On the Path of the Immortals—to arrive from Tom Horn’s warehouse and there has been a delay!  Please be patient as we’re doing everything we can to ship them out as soon as we get them!  L. A. 

Noah Hutchings went home to the Lord….

Dear Friends,
Some of you already know, but I wanted to make sure each of you had this information:
Noah Hutchings went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, June 17, at 3:45 p.m.  He died of kidney failure and pneumonia.  This great warrior for God lived 92 fruitful years, and worked at SWRC for 64 years, producing over 100 books, thousands of radio broadcasts and leading over 50 trips to the Holy Land, until he was deposed about three months ago.
The funeral service will be Wednesday, June 24 at 10:00 a.m. at First Baptist Church of Bethany, 3800 N. Mueller, Bethany, Oklahoma.  He will be buried in Rose Hill Burial Park, 6001 N.W. Grand Blvd.
I appreciate the prayers and loyal friendship each of you have rendered toward Carol and I during this painful, yet peaceful season of life.
David Schnittger

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Luke 21:36

Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. Matthew 24:42

And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch. Mark 13:37

The above words are from the synoptic Gospels found in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21.  Here we see Yeshua/Jesus admonishing us to watch for the signs that will bring about the end of the age.  The wars and rumors of war, famines, pestilence, earthquakes in diverse places and troublesome time. 

With that in mind I wonder how many people on this planet are watching?  Gary Stearman sign off the new Prophecy Watchers TV show by saying: Keep watching everybody!

There are around 7 billion of people on the planet and out of that 1.8 billion are Christians.  Out of the 1.8 Billion people, I wonder how many folks know about the prophecies found in their Bibles?  How many pastors teach these prophecies which are a command from the King himself, warning us, admonishing us to watch and be ready!

Last year I was at a conference and the key-note speaker was telling everyone the church had to take control of the 7 mountains of culture, banking, education, entertainment, family, government, media and religion.  I do agree that as Christians we should strive to  be the best we can be in whatever mountain we find ourselves put in.  However, there are some who are saying that before the King returns we must take dominion over all the mountains!  Here’s where I disagree.

We are told by Yeshua/Jesus what the days will be like before He returns.  We are admonished by Him to watch and be ready.  Does the church, at large, heed these warnings, or are they to  busy with programs and business to realize we might be in the window of time that directly relates to the prophetic words of the King.

When we look at what is happening on our planet, and we can do so because of the advance in communications, we see all of the warnings by Yeshua/Jesus manifesting everywhere.   The wars and rumors of war, famines, pestilence, earthquakes in diverse places and troublesome time. 

How many Christians don’t want to hear about the above warnings?  How many people are watching for the son of man’s return?  How many of us are ignoring these words at our own peril?

Added to this is the hint from Yeshua/Jesus that: It will be like the days of Noah when the son of man returns!

In closing todays Bun.  Where is the promise of His coming?  He is long-suffering, and patient.  He is also aware of the time and will not be late.  I would posit that we are in the window of time where the Lord’s return must be soon, as with all the genetic tampering going on, if He doesn’t return soon, there might not be a human being left!

The Days of Noah were perhaps the most troubling of times on the planet.  It was when the Fallen Angelic host of heaven came to earth and had sex with the daughters of men creating the hybrid Nephilim—the Fallen Ones.  Is this happening today?  The short answer for me—based on years of research—is yes it is.  However, it is a bizarre, twisted path that a person will follow to see what the dark side is cooking up in hell’s kitchen, as Russ Dizdar likes to call it.

I believe the signs are here.  We are at the end of the age and I for one grow weary of the perversion and wickedness that I find myself surrounded by.  Our hope is in His return, as when he does come back, everything changes.  The system that has enslaved this world, as well as the evil Prince of this world, Satan, will be done away with.  It is our only hope….

Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.17The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2: 16

We are strangers in a strange land.  As beautiful as this planet is, it’s not our home.  However, while we are here and in these bodies, which are in a fallen state—don’t believe me…. watch the 6 o’clock news—we are pulled in a lot of directions.  This is why Paul admonishes us to take every thought captive.

Falling in line with this exhortation from Paul, John exhorts us to watch and be on our guard, for three things, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life.  I want to touch on all three of these aspects of what we deal with as human beings.

the lust of the flesh:  First off the flesh always wants to lift itself up.  It always wants to be “me” first.  A great example of this is watching a three-year old,  it’s all about them!  However, some people never grow out of that phase and spend the rest of their lives wanting more and more and more.  They are never satisfied.  As my first pastor told me once; how much is enough…. just a little more.  The flesh can never be appeased and is at war with us.  As Paul states: In my flesh is no good thing.  He knows of what he speaks, as the works of the flesh are contrary to the works of the Spirit of the Living God.

lust of the eyes: This works in tandem with the lust of the flesh.  What we see we want.  We covet, we desire, we look with envy or lust, we become jealous and on and on it goes.  This is why when these thoughts happen, and if we are honest they do, we put them at the feet of the cross.  We die to them daily, as they go nowhere and will eventually burden us down.  How many of us rejoice when someone we know get’s a new house or car or promotion?  See what I mean?  I’ve seen people’s eyes—which are the window to their souls—flash with envy while their mouths congratulated me.  This is who we are.

the boastful pride of life: I made this!  This is mine!  I am a success!  I accomplished this! LOOK AT ME!  It’s easy for us to get puffed up with the pride of life and believe we are responsible for our success.  Yes, we work hard and apply our minds and bodies to whatever it is we are working on, but true success comes from our Father.  It is He who blesses.  It is He who allows us to prosper.  It’s very dangerous for anyone to look around at what he or she has and believe they are responsible for it.  This is why the 24 elders cast their crowns at the One seated on the throne in the Book of Revelation.  They know who it is who created them and allowed them to prosper in the way!

In closing todays bun.  All of us struggle with the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, but the good news is this.  If we are born from above the Spirit of the living God, His Spirit will: teach us in all things!  He will comfort us and instruct us.  He will reprove us when necessary and will lead us into His presence with singing.  We learn, as we walk out our salvation with fear and trembling, to overcome the flesh and walk in the Spirit.

Psalm 118 is packed with lots of good “stuff.” For example:

Psalm 118:14   The LORD [is] my strength and song, And He has become my salvation.

There’s a lot of comfort in knowing that He is our strength, especially in times of diversity, but this verse only applies to someone who knows who the LORD is. When a person becomes born from above, we are ushered into an entire different reality. Most of us before we come to this point rely totally on ourselves, as we take pride in being self-made and self-reliant.  However, when one becomes spirit filled, he or she is introduced to the reality of the spirit world. We learn that there is a “cosmic” war raging that has been continually prosecuted in the heavenlies, ever since the creation of man. We get glimpses of this war in Daniel, the Gospels, and of course the Book of Revelation. We also learn that the weapons against the enemy of our souls, are not carnal, in other words guns, spears, swords and your own fists won’t work against a supernatural entity!

There are some Christians who wonder where this battle takes place. Simply put, it takes place in the mind of the believer. When Satan entered Judas his point of entry was Judas’ thought life, i.e. the mind. So it is with us today. James tells us the way this works. I’ll paraphrase here, first we get a thought in our minds. Then, we entertain it. Finally we act on it, and if left unchecked can lead to both spiritual death, and in some cases, physical death as well. All of that to say this, that we need weapons in our arsenal to combat the thoughts that come into our minds. We need to check those thoughts against , The Bible or The Guide Book to the Supernatural, and what does not measure up to what it says, needs to be stopped at the door of our minds and forcefully ushered out. So how do we engage in this warfare? By knowing what the Guidebook says about certain situations. Once we know the Guidebook, and are trained in what it says, we can then arm ourselves with the weapons to counteract the fiery darts that the enemy will throw at us. Here’s an arrow, for our spiritual quiver that is found in Psalm 118. I have incorporated  this “arrow,” into my arsenal, because it is both a statement of faith and also a proclamation of victory. I would suggest that you commit this to memory so that you can use it when you are pressed in on all sides. The verse is this:

Psalm 118:17   I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of the LORD. 

It’s almost to simple, isn’t it? But let’s take a moment and look at what it declares. First off, it is a proclamation of victory. In other words death is not an option I will entertain, but life will be the outcome, thus, I shall not die but live! No matter what is pressing in on us, uttering this in our minds, speaking it out loud, declares victory over the situation that may seem overwhelming.

The second part of the Psalm points to the future, that because we live, we will declare the works of the Lord! I have also learned to substitute a variety of verbs in place of declare, as it amplified the phrase. For example. Extol the works of the Lord. Sing about the works of the Lord. Remember the works of the Lord. Think on the works of the Lord. Walk in the works of the Lords. It can go on and on, if you let it! The point is this, that we repeat this phrase, this weapon, in spite of the circumstances that we are surrounded in. We state out loud and also repeat it over and over again in our minds, that we shall not die, but live!

The enemy wants to rob, kill and destroy us, so what else should we expect? Psalm 118, can arm us with a powerful tool to destroy the works of the devil, which is what every one of us are called to do while we are here on earth!

Thanks for your support of this ministry!

See you all tomorrow! L. A.
