Modern Day Witches Call Theirs ‘A Beautiful Way Of Life’
Has the Church Lost its Salt?
L. A. Marzulli
Like it or not, this is where we are a culture, as a people, as a nation. There are churches on every street corner in every town in America. Yet, in every town there is a coven of witches and their numbers are growing.
The fascination with all things occult is influencing our young people. Our youth is being drawn to the dark side through music, film and TV shows as well as Ouija boards being sold in major stores at Christmas.
They are being initiated into the world of Satanism. I’ve shown this picture before and it’s old news but it is a barometer of what has become an in-your-face assault on Christian values and the church.
So why is this happening? Jesus tells us that in the later days the “church” will have a form of religion but deny its power. Welcome to the American Church.
So how do we fix this? Glad you asked.
Worship has become entertainment in many churches and many worship leaders have no idea of how to bring a congregation into the “throne-room.” Then there is usually complete insensitivity to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Here’s an example. The congregation has just finished singing Revelation song. They are standing in silence with an attitude of worship when a college student comes to the mic, greets the people and starts reading the morning announcements. I’ve seen this happen so many times I can’t count. It is at this point, when the people have been ushered into the presence of the Lord that He can move…if we let Him. There can be a word of knowledge, a tongue with an interpretation, a prophecy, a revelation, someone who is sick could be healed. It can happen but it needs to be done decently and in order and we have to get out of the way to allow it to happen in the first place.
So let’s say there is a move of the Holy Spirit and the “gifts” are utilized. Then, someone other than the pastor who has a gift of intercession should lead the people in prayer. Most churches pray for less than a minute. The Elders and deacons should be present on stage for support and also, if led, to pray too. The “leader” should target the fortune-teller in town, the abortion clinic, the crack house, the sick in the congregation should come forward and be anointed with oil and prayed for. This would involve the people in doing something other than sitting. It engages them in our most powerful weapon, prayer!
Afterwards comes a teaching by the pastor, from God’s word. An entire chapter, verse by verse is looked at. The pastor should also address world events in regard to prophecy. When the shootings happened in Los Vegas was a perfect time not only to pray but address what happened. This way not only is God’s word taught but the people are informed.
Lastly there should be a time when people can be prayed for individually. This should happen right after the service where the elders and deacons both men and women can pray for specific needs.
In closing the Bun. The youth are tired of games, events, church picnics, and potlucks. They are hungry for God, although most of them don’t know that. It’s easy for them to be seduced by the dark side and this is why many have drifted away. However, if they saw the Spirit of the Living God at work, it would, I believe change their lives.
It’s a sad day on Facebook. It was brought to my attention that a certain Jan Hodges wrote some nasty stuff about me on Facebook regarding our taking some time off, our much needed vacation.
Peggy and I are on vacation. We were comped 10 days at a really nice Hotel. That means it’s for free. All we had to do is come up with the money to ski. I guess in Hodges mind we’re not allowed to have a vacation. Mean spirited anyone?
I’m amazed at how low some people will go. Who is the accuser of the brethren?
Even here, while on “vacation” I did a show last night with Daniel Ott.
Just to clear something up. The donations go to the ministry not to our vacation! L.A.
This just came in. Two different perspectives. One accusation the other uplifting. Which would you like spoken into your life.
Thought some encouragement would be nice right now. I’m thankful for the work you do and god does through you. There is no doubt in my mind that god pointed me in your direction. For many years after my encounter my faith in god was seriously jeopardized. It wasn’t until I saw your website and watched some of your videos that i was able to put a biblical perspective on it. Now that i know what we’re dealing with, my faith in God is restored and strengthened more than ever before. I’m also thankful that you often respond to my emails as it can get overwhelming when a person has a crazy experience and there is nobody you can really talk to about it. I also thought it showed your true character when you took time from your busy life to call me, spend a few minutes talking with me and then pray for me. It meant a lot to me. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has felt alone because of their encounters and unusual experiences, and that you have done the same for them. People need to realize that this is how you make a living and that you are not an evangelist, although you do bring people to him or in my case back to him. Please don’t be discouraged and know that there are many people like me that are extremely grateful for the affect you have had on their life. I will continue to pray for you and your family as well as your ministry. Totally grateful,thankful and blessed by your work. Robert

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12: 2
We are surrounded by mind-thought-pollution. We are immersed in it and we see it in the commercials, TV shows, news items, movies, and at our places work… pretty much everywhere.
We are bombarded with images, thoughts, temptations, vulgarities and every crude and rude comment, story, and coarse joke one can imagine.
This is why we are admonished by Paul to renew our minds. We do this by hitting God’s word first thing in the morning and then, throughout the day, recalling those verses. We do this by singing praise songs or recalling a Bible story or better yet, when God’s spirit, His comforter speaks to us and gives us a “word,” a check in our spirit, guiding our steps.
Paul instructs us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds.
Original Word: ἀνακαίνωσις, εως, ἡ
Part of Speech: Noun, Feminine
Phonetic Spelling: (an-ak-ah’-ee-no-sis)
Short Definition: renewing
Definition: renewing; a renewal or change of heart and life. (Emphasis mine)
It’s important to realize the tension we find ourselves living in. We are, as I stated earlier, surrounded by a world which, for the most part, doesn’t want anything to do with the things of God. So as we travel through life it’s important to embrace the tension and yet because of the daily, constant renewing of our minds, to be separate from the perversion and sin which can so easily beset us.
Paul also gives us a punch list.
Philippians 4:8, NIV: “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.”
In other words we are to set our minds on these things. This is an act of will. We choose the good. We choose to think about what is true, noble. right, pure, lovely, admirable and anything that is excellent or praiseworthy.
Then in Phillippians 4:9 Paul goes on and states this: Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me–put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. (Emphasis mine)
This is a promise of God’s peace being with us as we put into practice thinking on the punch-list in Phillippians 4:8.
Have a good week and stay close to Him who is the author and finisher of our salvation!
Hi L. A.,
very quick update.
Phil has been rediagnosed various times.
Downgraded from heart attack to embolism, to no embolism, no heart attack. Now they say it is pleurisy or pneumonia. So now antibiotics and a week in hospital. To watch the diagnosis being reduced was amazing…they were definite about the heart attack and the embolism together and now everything has changed. We are watching the power of prayer,I think.
Thank you so very much.

Commentary & Analysis
L. A. Marzulli
Coming to you from an undisclosed location deep in the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains.
I suppose we should just hold a continual candle-light vigil, until the second coming, because the mindless slaughter of innocents, in the name of Allah, is not going to stop….ever.
Cradle your teddy bear, light your candles, place a wreath of flowers on the blood-stained ground and repeat the mantra that you’ve been told, by the idiots in the MSM to repeat, Islam is a religion of peace.
Another bunch of Jihadi thugs, carrying out their murderous rampage, struck London yesterday. As long as countries allow the so-called immigrants and refugees into their countries these acts of terror will become so commonplace that people will begin to flee the countries they live in. But where will they go? Perhaps people should stand their ground and push back against the Jihad, radical Islam and the so-called immigrants.
Of course that would be politically incorrect and it may result in a dim-witted “comedian” acting out his or hers own Jihad against what they consider to be Islamaphobic.
Here’s what I think is really going on. All of what we see is orchestrated by the elites. They want the chaos. They revel in it. They created it in the first place. They opened the doors of Europe.
What Charles Martel fought against, at the battle of Tours, turning back the Islamic hordes, centuries ago, Merkel and others of her ilk have opened their borders and allowed free access to their countries.
This is deliberate. Out of chaos… order. In my opinion, what we are seeing is a classic Haegelian Dialectic.
The first move was 911. (oops there that pesky building 7 again!)
This sent us into Afghanistan, and gave the deep-state access to the 1 TRILLION dollar a year opium harvest. (Black budgets anyone?) This set the world into an orchestrated “chaos” where the disruption of “normal” life is now an ongoing series of suicide bombers, knife stabbings, rampaging trucks, and masked shooters gunning down innocents.
The outcome? A new world order? A global government? A new religion?
What about Chris-Lam? The merging of the two religions, Christianity and Islam, in order to bring peace. Could this be the final “leg” of the dialectic. It will be a merging of the two religions to bring about world-peace. I can hear the pundits at CNN singing Kumbaya now.
Am I out on a limb here? Perhaps. However, we know from the Book of Revelation there will be a one-world government and a one-world religion. As farfetched as it seems: what was written will come to pass. What was foretold will unfold.
I will post a special presentation tomorrow on my YOUTUBE channel! You won’t want to miss this report. It has to do with the History Channel’s airing of the most recent episode of Ancient Aliens.
