Sunday Bun – The Strongman


Sunday Bun


L. A. Marzulli

Note: Peggy and I would like to thank all of you who covered us in prayer for the last 8 days.  The situation has resolved but not the way we had hoped.   We both are exhausted and heart-sick.  However, God is in control and while we don’t see what is going on behind the scenes, I am sure He has and will be working.

The Strong Man:

Before the Nephilim Mounds 3 conference last week I had a very troubling dream which, as it turns out, was prophetic.  In the dream I found myself in a room and in front of me was a very large man, as large as the Hulk, and his chest and arms were bare.  He was huge and he said this to me, I’m going to rip you in pieces.  

I tried to fight him but was overcome and then I awakened and was troubled.  The Spirit of the Living God spoke to me and said, You cannot fight this in the flesh, only in the spirit. I lay in bed and wondered what had just happened….. now I know.

The strongman came at us with both barrels and our lives have been a train wreck since the conference.  We have been praying against the strongman and asked Father to send His angels to war against this intruder.

The reason why I share this experience is because it is a battle report and a teachable moment for all of us who may have not gone through something like this.

There can be strongholds in our lives or the lives of our loved ones.  These entities can attach themselves through the use of drugs, occult practices, sexual improprieties or a host of other doorways, that if not checked can lead to chaos in a person’s life and the life of other family members as well.

In order to remove the strongman the person who is “hosting” it must want it removed.  I have been involved in a few deliverances in my 35 years as a born again believer.  It’s not something I am called to do specifically but when it presents itself and I get confirmation from the Father, I will engage.  One thing I have learned.  Unless the person wants the strongman out, it won’t come out as it has legal right to be there. Human beings have free will and to turn a StarTrek phrase, this is the prime directive which cannot be violated.  In other words unless the person who has allowed the strongman into their lives in the first place makes a conscious decision to have it removed, it will not come out, free will is in play.

However, if a person does wants to be set free from the bondage then a battle can be forthcoming, as this unclean spirit will not want to leave.   This is where putting on the armor of God and walking in the Spirit comes into play.   These demons must bow and yield to the name above all names, Jesus.

So what do we do with a person who embraces the strongman in their life?  Fast and pray and believe that at some point Father God will act.

A friend once told me: where there is life there’s hope.

As we walk through our lives it can appear to us that a situation is hopeless and in the natural it may certainly look that way, however, we don’t see what is happening in the spirit world.  We don’t see how are prayers may be affecting the situation.

In closing todays post.  As most of you know my new book, Days of Chaos, will be out soon.  The times were are living in are certainly chaotic.  How much more should we spend in prayer, take every thought captive and walk according to the spirit and not the flesh.

Thanks again to all of you who covered us in prayer.

Nephilim Mounds 3 – Update.  

The conference was really well attended and over 500 people showed up.  Russ Dizdar, Chief Joseph and Laralynn Riverwind, Gary Stearman, Fritz Zimmerman and yours truly, all gave great talks packed with information.  Thanks to all who attended!

Now to the Sunday Bun:

If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small.  Proverbs 24;10

Adversity will come into our lives at some point.  It’s going to happen no matter who we are or what we do.  This is why it is important to have daily walk with Father God.  This is why we read our Bibles and meditate on the word, why we put on the armor of God every day.

At times we may be faced with situations that we can not solve, or fix, especially if it has to do with a family member or co-worker.  We can’t change people, we can only pray for them and leave them in the hands of the Father.

Sickness, financial troubles, the loss of a job, or home, the loss of friendship can contribute to a time of adversity.  It can be overwhelming, as there may not be a solution even if we have all the money to throw at the problem.

Peggy and I are facing a time of adversity and we are powerless, as we can do nothing to fix it.  All we can do is pray and stand and wait to see what the Lord will do.

After 35 years of walking with Him, I know I can trust him and so I believe He will bring good out of the situation.  It doesn’t make it any easier to go through but nevertheless, we will trust and believe in this; And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

In closing todays short but pithy Bun:  Today is the Feast of Trumpets.  We would love to hear the sound of it and rise to greet the Lord in the air.  How wonderful that would be! In the meantime Peggy and I will put one foot in front of the other and continue to press in to Him who is the keeper of our souls, even in the day of adversity.

Sunday Go To Meeting Bun – Two Kingdoms


Sunday Bun


L. A. Marzulli

I have come to give you life and have it  more abundantly.  

The Kingdom of Heaven -Yeshua/Jesus

The Enemy Comes to rob, kill and destroy.  

The Kingdom of the Fallen One.

Most of us know who the Prince of this world is.  He comes to rob, kill and destroy.  All one need do is look at the daily 12 hour news cycle to confirm who is ruling the planet at the moment.  The Kingdom of Yeshua has not yet fully manifested yet, however for those of us who are born from above and filled with the spirit of the living God, we can experience life more abundantly.  Please don’t confuse this with the prosperity gospel that some folks on Christian TV espouse, as that’s not what I’m talking about.

Most people live without peace in their lives and they attempt to find it through other means like drugs, alcohol, video games, endless activities and acquiring of more and more possessions.  As my first mentor Wayne Kendall used to say, human beings are garbage dumps.  In other words what do we do with the bad things that have happened to us through our lives, the harsh words spoken over us, our own anger, bitterness, cruelty, lust, disappointments and on and on it goes.

When we come to Yeshua, who is called The Prince of Peace, we find ourselves with peace for our weary souls  This happens supernaturally and as the Bible tells us, we can have peace that passes understanding.  Perhaps this is one of the best kept secrets of being a Christian.

One of my favorite saying is this: Be still and know that I Am God.

Sitting still before Him when we are troubled or in the midst of some trial is the key to finding peace.  Taking our requests to Him through our prayers can free us and we can have peace like a river.

The Kingdom of the Fallen One is one of fear and death.  He hates us and wants to do to us what he did to Yeshua on Calvary, so many years ago.  He comes to rob us from our destiny,  to kill every opportunity that comes our way and kill it before it’s birthed, and destroy our lives.  He can accomplish this in a variety of ways and he is a master of it.

The good news for us is that we have a choice of which kingdom we can belong to.  The kingdom of Yeshua is one of peace and eternal life and forgiveness of all of the nasty things we humans do.  The kingdom of darkness is just that, a life of darkness.

In closing todays Bun: He stands at the door of our hearts and knocks.  He is the Prince of Peace, the Rightful King and I believe He is returning soon.  If you think you know Him but you don’t know him, then, you don’t know Him.  Are you troubled and burdened down with some of what life can throw at you?  Are you addicted  to drugs, alcohol, pornography?  Are you wallowing in bitterness or self-pity?  He can set you free and bring peace into your life.  He can turn things around and give you life more abundantly.  Ask Him in to your life and He will change it.  Become born from above and Be Still and know that He is God.

Sunday Bun – The Matrix People!

The New Man

17 This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of[d] the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, 18 having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; 19 who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. (This is the definition of the Matrix people! L.A.)

20 But you have not so learned Christ, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

Most of us have seen the movie The Matrix.  The take away is this: that the world is an illusion and the people are actually in a controlled hologram called the Matrix.

Matrix people are all around us.  Some of them can tell you who was the short stop for the Chicago Cubs in 1962 but can’t tell you about John 3:16.  They will talk incessantly about nothing and dominate the conversation with mindless drivel.  They don’t know and are ignorant of the things of God and so spend the hours of each day literally in futility.  In short their mind is not renewed and their spirit is dead.  It’s a very sad state of affairs.

35 years ago before I was born from above and then filled with the Spirit of the Living God, I was a matrix man.  I was caught up in worldly pursuits and building my own kingdom.  I was ignorant of the ways of The Lord.

I was in the airport a few days ago and I got my shoes shined at one of those shoe-shine stands that are in the terminal.  I was sitting in the chair and the shoe-shine man was busy attending another customer and while I was waiting I listened to their conversation, which was about as lewd as you could get.  I waited until the other patron left and then I asked: Are you aware that ancient prophecies talk about the earthquakes, wars, and troublesome times that we are living in?

That got his attention and the mans face changed and then he said: I’m not praying like I should and I need to get back to my Bible.

We then had a good “chat” and I admonished him that today was the day he needed to get back to the Truth.

There are people who are caught up in worldly pursuits, and while it is a good thing to plan for the future, it is The Lord who guides our steps and directs our paths.

Are you spending hours every day playing video games?  You’re caught up in the matrix.

Are you obsessed with your favorite team winning or loosing?  You are a Matrix person!

I know of a man who has recorded every Laker game for the last 20 years.  He has a stack of DVD’s in his home and he presents them proudly to anyone who shows an interest. Matrix man?  You bet.

There are men who are caught in the web of pornography which is like barbed wire in the mind.  Matrix anyone?

There are women who know everything about what the Kardashian’s are doing but never spend a minute in the word. Welcome to the Matrix.

In closing todays Bun.  We are to renew our minds by washing them with the word.  It is a good way to start the day, by reading from our swords—our biblesby centering our thoughts on the truth, on Him who has redeemed us, and given us a new life and a new man.  As long as we are here on this planet there will be Matrix People that we will have to deal with.  However, we can steer the conversation away from the trivial to the eternal.  We can choose to leave a situation if the talk degrades into lewdness.  One more story.  I was playing golf once and I was teamed up with a person who was using the name of Jesus as a curse word.  After the third time, I had enough and I told him that I was a pastor and if he persisted on using the name of my Lord and savior as a curse word then he would have to finish the round by himself because I wasn’t going to tolerate it for another minute.  He apologized and we finished the round.  He was a Matrix man caught up in the world with no clue.  Think on this…

20 But you have not so learned Christ, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

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. 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.
