An End Times Snapshot 10-21-2015

Not a terribly original or exciting blog title but it will do. 🙂

I want to take a look at several stories that crossed my path that continue to paint an unmistakable picture to me that not only are we in the season before the Jesus Christ’s return but we are very close to it.

Things are moving so fast every day now which is to be expected if we follow the birth pangs analogy Jesus gave in Luke 21, Mark 13, and Matthew 24 and I firmly hold to that as the intensity and frequency of ALL of those factors are clearly on the uptick.

MIDDLE EAST:

http://www.news.com.au/world/russia-releases-shockingly-clear-footage-of-the-devastation-surrounding-damascus/story-fndir2ev-1227576520336

This is astounding war footage just “as is.”  out of Damascus. The Russians have been kicking butt and taking names. There is no question about that.

What makes it even more profound potentially is, for students of Bible prophecy, we know that Isaiah 17 forecasts an absolute and final destruction of Damascus. This has never happened in history and there are many of us who lean towards the idea that we have been seeing this prophecy in slow motion setup ever since the war broke out there.

The language in that passage describes a culminating shock and awe finisher of some sort. It could be nuclear. It could be biological. It could be supernatural. It might even be all of the above. We don’t know for sure but given the fact that the bulk of the Ezekiel 38 players are on stage now and in their correct positions makes me believe that Isaiah 17 at minimum is not far off from fulfillment.

The Russian involvement and escalation in the Middle East is a game changer and a point of no return and numerous people in and out of Christendom broadly agree for a wide variety of reasons.

Back on October 2, DEBKA reported that the Chinese were preparing to enter the fray as well on the side of the Russians and they and a few other outlets are stubbornly holding to that story as of this date.They have even repeated it several times. They have earned the benefit of the doubt with me at this point given a solid track record but… The Chinese appear to be taking the “slow boat” on showing up. *insert deserved groans here*  Sorry, I couldn’t resist. 😉

Where are they? I really wish DEBKA or someone would follow up on that story and lock it down with more authority.

To the best of my knowledge, the Chinese have not yet arrived although there are some stray mixed stories to that effect.

If and when the Chinese get involved it’s another game changer. I think they will because the eventual Kings of the East need to have more of an escalated interest in the area for at least financial interests.  The “stick it to the USA” concept likely has something going for it but that wouldn’t be enough in and of itself.  Economics and oil are huge motivators for a lot of what we are seeing.  The Chinese have been making inroads in the ME in recent years by making deals with Saudis and so forth. It makes sense they would want to “protect their investments” and so forth.

All of these things are always backdropped by the spiritual component. Everything stems off of that and we can’t forget it. Clearly the principalities and players behind the scenes on any all levels are shifting and moving. The stage is getting set.

Watch it closely.  One spark and domino could set off everything else and it could come quickly. We see through a glass dimly but the outlines are getting a little clearer each day.

Keep praying and to quote Gary Stearman at Prophecy Watchers: “Keep watching, everybody…”  because this rollercoaster is moving faster each day.

Keep praying.  Try and stay in the Bible as much as you can each day even if all you can do is read the same few sentences repeatedly if you’re in the midst of hardship.  It can get that way. It isn’t about quantity, it’s about quality and a relationship with He who loves us more than we will ever understand on this side.

^^ I highly recommend these materials.  To see it well documented in black and white and on video just how much radical change has taken place on the Earth inside of a decade and all birth pangs categories is staggering.

THE TEMPLE MOUNT:

1.) http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/202224#.Viec8iuKKBV

This Temple Mount issue went from being not mentioned at all to a burgeoning geopolitical hotbed issue in a handful of years.

Anyone that has a passing familiarity with Bible prophecy knows that the Temple has to be rebuilt and in place for the AntiChrist to eventually walk in there and commit the “Abomination of Desolation.”

This tension and fervor has led to increasing violence and what is essentially a new Intifada whether everyone wants to admit it or not. Abbas said a month ago at the UN that Oslo was terminated and everyone knew what that meant despite the lame attempts of others in the PLO to walk the comments back.  The several times a day and growing stabbing attacks and worse make it very clear that people got the message and it’s not a good one.

2.) http://www.templemountfaithful.org/articles/letter-to-pope-francis-to-return-stolen-temple-items.php

It’s a common belief that the Vatican is sitting on untold amounts of wealth and it would not surprise me at all if there is at least some truth to the idea that they are sitting on at least some of the Temple heirlooms and relics. Make of it what you will.  This is fairly detailed treatise.

The Bible gives us a good amount of the “what” in terms of prophecy but it doesn’t necessarily give us a lot of the  “how” as in “how do we get from point A to point B?”

CULTURE:

Zombie Con? So shocking that an act of violence happened at an event where people celebrate the “undead.”   Are you kidding? What kind of deviant and demented society has practically a fetish to celebrate violence, gore, necromancy, and the undead?

We have become so desensitized to this…no accident… that last week an awful story came out of Ohio about a lady’s body being left for dead on a fence and everyone from the cops on through paid it no mind thinking it was a zombie Halloween decoration.

Somehow Halloween…a high Unholy Satanic holiday…kicks off a two month orgy of dissociation, partying, consumerism,  and checking out.  Call a doctor’s office in mid to late November to get something done and you will see what I mean. The holidays are ruined. Even if you don’t want to be “Scrooge” this nonsense makes you become one.

None of this is an accident. IMHO during the Tribulation we read awful and unreal descriptions in the book of Revelation of creatures coming out of the pit and people who have a time where they try to die and can’t… if that isn’t a zombie I don’t know what is.

It is my OPINION that the world is being desensitized and conditioned ahead of time so when these things comes to pass it will be all but shrugged off as normal.

I have another theory about this that involved the magical word “hybrid” and ties into the whole UFO abduction discussion that I could get into but suffice to say for now: If you have a bunch of people mutilating themselves to a point where they don’t even look human any more and we have plenty of that… IF there are any kind of demonic hybrids walking around…they would look a lot more “normal” vs the people mutilating themselves.  It’s brilliant cover if there is an issue. Just sayin’.    Jesus said it would be like the days of Noah before His return and there were no caveats or exceptions cited. Genesis 6 tells you what that means right on up to the Flood itself.

I appreciate a healthy skepticism. I have some of it myself. I have no proof of a hybrid issue nor do I hope to ever run across one in person.  I cannot state anything definitively past that either way although I can appreciate why there could be a potential Genesis 6 retread backdoor attempt concept in play via the UFO abduction set.   It’s worth researching carefully and taking note of.

Put all of this together and it’s hard for me to believe it’s all for nothing.

Back to the Future 2 day:   We sure were more wide eyed and optimistic in a pre 9-11, pre terrorism jihadist, pre open globalism left and right world weren’t we?  It’s interesting and fun to compare what they projected for our time and what they got right and didn’t.

Sadly, the alternate 1985 that was portrayed in this movie is a lot closer to where we are at and that’s worth considering on its own. In this movie, the wrecked timeline’s 1985 was a crime ridden, debauched, dark, Las Vegas- on-steroids essentially.

I will say this: The Cubs success is downright astounding and if they win it all that’s the biggest lock for nearness of the Apocalypse if ever I’ve seen and Zemeckis and his film crews’ prophetic status is secured.  😀

PERSONAL NOTE:

One of the reasons this blog was not active was this past year was a very challenging one for myself and my family. The short version for now is we went to Spiritual Warfare 3.0 and we were absolutely not ready. We got caught in a high-end spiritual entrapment that involved a legalist cult masquerading as something else,  We had a real life “multiple” target  us and ultimately this entire thing was about destroying us.There is another controversial concept.

Our family is technically an ecclesia. “When two or more are gathered in My name, I am there.”  Jesus wasn’t kidding about that and I want to encourage any of you reading this because I realize the “lonely/isolated feeling boat” is MUCH larger than I may have thought and that is also an end times symptom.  Breakdown of society fundamentals and all that goes with it. Divide and conquer are tactics of the enemy. This subject alone could be a very lengthy series of entries.   I call it New World Order Fallout and there are a slew of symptoms fall into that box.  Harping on symptoms is easy.  Going after the cause is something else entirely which is SIN.

The good news is: This year-long entrapment attempt and setup ultimately failed thanks to the Lord. There is the expected fallout from something like this that we covet your prayers on for healing and we are coming along thanks to the support we have had.

I freely admit that I understood the MPD/DID and SRA concept “on paper”  and agreed with it to a point at least so far as knowing “it was out there” and there were real victims… I understood the concept and that’s one thing… SEEING it with our own eyes is something else entirely.

There is a lot of nonsense out there in a number of these controversial topics and fields. Always carefully do your homework and pray to the Lord for wisdom and discernment. Check everything against His Word and you will never go wrong. 🙂

The theme I keep running into including interviews with pastors is being surprised and shocked at the level of spiritual attacks that happened and why. This included us and includes a number of my friends and people in spheres of acquaintance that I have had discussions with over the last few years.

We ourselves took it for granted that we were just “normal run of the mill Christians/regular people” not in ministry and not out on the front lines…. doesn’t matter. That’s not how this works and we got educated on that the hard way.

If you are even remotely trying to walk with the Lord you have a bullseye on your back because Satan is about robbing, killing, and destroying and if he can shipwreck Christians to a point of ineffectiveness or worse than he’s all for it and that’s what he is going to do.  We all need to remember Ephesians 6 and 1 John 4 and I highly recommend an in-depth study of these as soon as you can.  A friend of mine made a very good point about the Armor of God in Ephesians 6: It’s never supposed to come off.

If God has you in a position where all you can do is pray…then do it with all your might. Prayer is SO underestimated and undervalued it’s not even funny.

God always knows what He is doing even if we don’t!

CONCLUSION:

In the hopefully not too distant future, Lord willing, more detailed blog entries will be going up about all of these things.

Stay in prayer and stay in the Bible as much as you can. If you’re having a tough time and we all do at least work into the Psalms and the book of John. If you have to read the same sentence repeatedly to get something out of it then do it. Fight through. It’s about a relationship, not religion. Religion stifles, stagnates, chokes, and kills. That’s the exact opposite of what the Bible teaches and what the Gospel is about regardless of what names and permutations it comes under. Fear, works, guilt, “improve  your status with God”, earn/keep your salvation… the focus is about “me” in all of those things instead of “God” and that means you need to get away from it.  This, too, goes to some of what this last year was about for us.

The saving Gospel of Jesus Christ which is spelled out very cleanly in John 3 and especially starting with verse 16 and 1 Corithians 15 guarantees that you will be protected and taken above and/or through anything in His peace and love. There isn’t much time left to make that decision. It’s the most important decision you will ever make. Why wait any longer?  Decide where you want to spend eternity because eternity is one blink away.

Watchers 9 DVD and Days of Chaos book review

Watchers 9 DVD

We live in truly remarkable times and as the title correctly states: The Days of Chaos.

This film is definitive, comprehensive, and absolutely on the edge of your seat in terms of importance with no needless hype or sensationalism because the subject matters themselves and their developments are indeed that all on their own. The key passages of Scripture used as the launching point for this documentary are Luke 21 and Matthew 24 and the varying symptoms and signs ticked off in both of those chapters that describe the time period leading up to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

Pinlight Productions continues to dazzle me with how fresh they can make the presentation with both cutting edge visuals and masterful sound design. It’s a total team effort on all levels so kudos to all. One would be hard pressed to find me anyone else that can compete with this crew on being able to stretch a budget to a magical degree. I don’t know how much more I can praise this entire crew than to say if I ever needed to make a film and I had the means to do so they would be my first choice.

LA Marzulli and Richard Shaw both have a special talent and gift from the Lord to be able to take a wide swath of subjects matters, including some fringy, edgy, and complicated concepts, boil them down to their basic elements, take the fluff out, dissect them all, and put them in a Biblical and honest context where the viewer can take it or leave it as it should be with a good documentary. It’s been a blessing to see how the Lord has taken the gifts and talents of both of them and brought it all together.

The Watchers series always has been a family and team production from top to bottom that comes together in a complete package. The “tender loving care” always shows even during some of the darkest segments. This isn’t about anything else but glorifying the Lord and doing what good watchmen are supposed to do: Putting a spotlight on a slew of subjects to edify and warn people as needed.

As I write this review in late 2015, it really is difficult to imagine decades more of status quo on a number of these elements highlighted given the growing developments already in play. We live in a time where we never know what we are going to see when we turn the TV on or check in on the Internet. This will only continue to ramp up across the boards as we move forward.

It’s become cliché by now but this really is the best Watchers yet. Why? It covers the issues that immediately affect everyone or will affect everyone, first and foremost, and it does it in a balanced and engaging fashion with a Biblical foundation. Topics like Nephilim, UFO deception, and those sorts of things definitely have their place in a larger context but these were not the primary focus of this documentary so it is my hope that an even larger, broader audience takes a shot at this one.

Ultimately these documentaries are about getting people to wake up, engage varying subject matters, ask tough questions, and if they don’t know Jesus Christ as their personal savior then to hopefully give them a potential avenue to get there.

It’s a tough balancing act to make a documentary from a Christian worldview that doesn’t alienate non Christians and I think this team has done the best they can with the careful balance. There is definitely something for everyone in this documentary. Jesus is all over this documentary, knocking at the door, but not kicking it down.

Watchers 9 opens up with a well done opening segment montage that touches on each subject that’s going to be covered. I will warn the squeamish now: There is a 10 second piece of footage in the opening montage that involves one of these Planned Parenthood butcher jobs and it’s disturbing. It is what it is. People need to know about it and sometimes a little bit of in your face shock value is unfortunately what it takes. I say that as someone who is not a fan of shock value and sensationalism although I do concede that there are judicious times where it has to be done. I think this is one of those times and it’s only for a few seconds. I respect the decision as to why that footage was included even though I readily admit to being squeamish myself so here is the heads up.

This nearly two-hour documentary flies by because you are drawn into it from the word go. Jade Helm, infrastructure grids, food supply, droughts and other natural phenomena, Bible prophecy and Middle East tackled from several viewpoints including a rare and welcome segment from the Native American viewpoint, the production crackles with energy and urgency.

What I have always appreciated about this series and I would argue this was the best one yet in terms of balance on this was that there was care taken to avoid nail-biting hype, paranoia, and sensationalism was taken when handling each subject.

Admittedly some of these subjects are sensational in their own right but it’s impressive when even a segment about the whole Planet X phenomenon is brought down to Earth, pardon the pun, and de-fused of all the excessive hype and insanity that’s out there. It’s the sign of a good documentary when a person can come into subject hostile or close to it and come away with an upgrade back to “healthy skeptic/jury is out/take it for what it’s worth” attitude like me coming off the Planet X discussion.  This segment might even be the sleeper because a lot of people have the same view on the subject as I do and I think when they see and hear this they will appreciate that someone finally took an above boards approach to it. What little real science exists for the topic, history, and potential (key word) Biblical implications were carefully discussed with all viewpoints getting a fair mention.

The segments on infrastructure failure and deterioration of the last 60 years combined with the growing drought in the United States, especially out in California, and the alarming loss of honey bees are an example of what I mean about how this documentary is about issues that are immediate, upfront, and will affect everyone at some point or another including people outside of the United States.  We have been paying taxes for decades supposedly for infrastructure and it’s never happened yet for  a slew of reasons I won’t get into here. We are increasingly paying the consequences on that. It doesn’t help when natural or arguably not so natural factors kick in on top of that. There are people who are convinced or at least suspicious that some level of man-made interference and weather engineering is now at play via HAARP or some other construct to meddle with weather patterns. There may be intended and unintended consequences and finally there is the potential of a supernatural component as well. Ultimately we come back to Luke 21 and Matthew 24 and the fact that these symptoms all match up and strongly suggest we are in the  “pre-Horsemen on the march” setup phase.

Richard Shaw was in two segments that featured some hefty technical concepts were brought up and they needed to be brought down to Earth and presented in a compelling fashion since they involved some time in front of a computer and a video processing walkthrough.  One segment was an update on the research involving The Torah Codes. It is no small challenge to present a concept like this in a handful of minutes and explain how it operates and then bring everyone up to the latest developments but Shaw was able to to pull this off just as  he has in the past on a previous Torah Codes documentaries and several conference presentations.  I won’t belabor the point but even I’m satisfied that there is something noteworthy going on here that merits further, careful scrutiny and study. It’s math and probability and it all goes past coincidence.  There is no Kabbalah or crazy mysticism anywhere. What is not encouraged nor fostered from the lead experts handling the Torah Codes responsibly is any attempt at trying to forecast the future. Responsible people are not doing this nor are they encouraging it. I recommend a careful study on your own time to make of it what you will. There has been a lot of nonsense in this area over the years. The Torah Codes involve strictly Genesis-Deuteronomy in the original Hebrew on a tight set of rails that I couldn’t do justice to here trying to explain it. I don’t fully understand it myself but I can definitely appreciate that I am looking at something that isn’t easily dismissed.

The other segment was a UFO update segment that involved some time where Shaw walked us through a careful video study of further dissection of some UFO ship footage that we first saw in Watchers 7, courtesy of the late Dr. Roger Leir. That ship footage is jaw dropping and undeniable at this point but the point to this segment was to further dissect what is possibly being seen near the top of it via an opening. Richard Shaw has done his best to remaster and carefully clean up the original video which was shot before the days of HD but ultimately you are the mercy of the master source. Garbage in, garbage out as they say in both the audio and video worlds. In any event, there are some suspect qualities to the top of the interior of this ship when looking closely that seem to suggest that there may be two to three “aliens” visible. Shaw takes us briefly but necessarily through the steps he has taken to analyze this video. This is a sequence that would have been dead on arrival in most situations because how compelling is it, really, to have someone sitting at a computer and walking you through Photoshop and other routines of that nature? Shaw pulls it off successfully because he has to for the sake of all the wannabe debunkers out there. He keeps the technical jargon down and the segment doesn’t over stay its welcome. Unfortunately, technical wizardry can only go so far and is still at the mercy of the quality of the source material, which was good for the mid 1990s but doesn’t hold a candle to our technology today. Because of this, it would be fair to say the close up footage of what might be “aliens” is inconclusive but I personally think there is enough there that I desperately wish more could be done with it and I am personally not satisfied with dismissing it as another “Jesus in a Taco” situation.

There was one other portion of the UFO segment which I think offers easier and more definitive takeaway. It highlighted an unfortunate, deluded man who thinks he has the ability to summon down UFOs at will and if he has “positive energy” he will summon down “good beings” and vice versa. Multiple cameras and numerous people were on hand as witnesses and they all captured this footage of a manifestation of some kind of broadly humanoid looking creature in the sky. It has not been debunked. The spiritual deception and “great deception” angles are also ramping up and moving forward along with everything else so it begs the question: If they…meaning demons…are getting this bold and brazen with these sorts of sightings… how close are we before the big one hits and especially in the context of everything else?

The segment of Bible prophecy and news that got the largest amount of focus and attention, and rightfully so, was Israel and the Middle East. Israel is the super sign and God’s timepiece. If people want to know where they are at on God’s prophetic timeclock all they have to do is look at Israel and then zoom back and look at the rest of the Middle East. The developments that have occurred out there in recent times have been staggering and show no signs of abating but rather the opposite.

As anyone who studies and operates in this realm at all knows all too well: Since everything is moving with greater speed it becomes that much more difficult to keep things current when producing any kind of media shy of daily Internet concepts. In this case, this was all extremely current and the continued strength of this media allows for in-depth analysis, study, and dissection. The burgeoning Temple Mount issue was also given a segment and rightfully so. It’s extremely telling that we are in a time where that is even being discussed let alone the growing frustration towards inevitable collision we are already seeing on this growing issue. Even a handful of years ago it was a relative non-issue. Now we have regular violence and tension over the Temple Mount and it is quickly becoming a geopolitical hot button issue in and of itself.  A huge underground revival to Christianity is taking place in parts of the Middle East including under the oppressive regime of Iran. There is a segment with a powerful testimony from a Christian Iranian not to be missed.

Last but not least is the closing segment. Every Watchers documentary ends with L.A. Marzulli doing an on-screen monologue where he recaps what we’ve seen, poses challenging questions, and exhorts the viewers to continue to research for the truth.   This has not changed but I did notice and personally appreciated that there was more of an upfront but careful, non-proselytizing mention of Jesus Christ and the Gospel. My admittedly biased opinion as a Christian likes the segment but I can appreciate the tough balancing act and tough deliberating and prayer that has to go into a decision on how to handle this sort of segment since the hope, intent, and prayer is that the documentary will go to as wide and diverse an audience as possible.

Days of Chaos Book

The companion book shares the same title as Watchers 9 DVD does, Days of Chaos.   While the book does indeed touch on many of the same topics as the DVD does, it also touches on a number of other topics and goes into much more depth on all of the subject matter as the medium allows for.  This book is far more than just “a written form of the DVD.” This is a meaty, nearly 300 page Biblical prophetic study and analysis in its own right and a sequel of sorts to LA’s previous book Politics, Prophecy, and the Supernatural which is still well worth everyone’s time.

The book is presented as “an end times handbook” and I readily agree with that description. Every conceivable major prophetic topic and “birth pang” symptom is given at least one detailed chapter with full breakdown, analysis, and Scriptural dissection with copious footnotes for further reading and research.  The book is an enjoyable read which may sound peculiar given the serious subject matter but that goes to LA’s engaging and accessible writing.

LA’s approach to writing this book involved taking numerous blog entries of his going as far back 2008 and working his way forward to present day. From there he adds current day information and responds to himself with 20-20 hindsight and it speaks for itself just how much has happened in such a short amount of time. He also pulls in numerous other resources and the end result is nearly 300 page book that lives up to its billing. It’s incredible to see in black and white just how much change has happened in such a short amount of time.

The Days of Chaos DVD and book set clearly spell out that the birth pangs have picked up in both speed and intensity just as Jesus said they would in the season leading up to His return and it’s clear that there isn’t much time left before that happens. These materials don’t just tell, they show.  Both of these are must have study materials that you need to avail yourself of as soon as you can. The best places to get them are either directly off of http://www.lamarzulli.net or at http://www.prophecywatchers.com.

Postscript: https://lamarzulli.wordpress.com/2015/10/17/l-a-marzullis-politics-prophecy-and-the-supernatural-tv-show/

Since developments are moving so quickly in the world an expansion of the Watchers concept into a TV show that can be more frequent and regular makes a lot of sense. It looks like LA and his crew are hoping to launch the project in January 2016 so as the Lord leads if you feel compelled to offer support to the project that’s the best way to do it.

Final takeaway:  Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

Expanded review of Lying Wonders of the Red Planet by S. Douglas Woodward

My original review was posted on Amazon: https://banditzlayer.wordpress.com/2014/02/24/my-amazon-review-of-lying-wonders-of-the-red-planet-by-s-douglas-woodward/

 

This next link is my review to L.A. Marzulli’s Watchers 7 DVD and Further Evidence companion book:

https://banditzlayer.wordpress.com/2014/02/17/watchers-7-and-further-evidence-review-and-impressions/

The reason I am linking to that review is because Lying Wonders of the Red Planet by S. Douglas Woodward dovetails and overlaps on several subjects and broad themes that Marzulli’s work does albeit from a different angle. There are a number of comments I made in that review that could also apply to this book in a general sense.

Both of these recent works come together clearly from different angles to attack the same deception setup that has been clearly occurring in our society for a lot longer than a lot of people have noticed or would like to believe.

I can highly recommend this book to anyone regardless of worldview or views on the topics covered in this book. The reasons I can do that is because Doug Woodward has a gift of being able to present every viewpoint with accuracy and balance while making the distinction in regards to his own personal views. Woodward always comes well documented with a high degree of scholarship for any project he tackles. I hate to use the cliché “fair and balanced” but I really can say that about Woodward’s approach from everything I have ever seen and heard from him. Woodward is able to employ a wry sense of humor and deft wit during the course of what can be at times dark and disturbing material.
The thesis of this book sets out to prove that the current Ancient Aliens phenomenon is today’s gnosticism. Taken at face value, that is a deceptively simple statement because to prove that thesis requires 150 years worth of backtracking and documenting the entire alien mythos that has permeated the culture and specifically the fascination with and focus on Mars in helping to perpetuate that narrative no matter what.

For example: Which delusion is capable of bringing together the jihadist Muslim and the orthodox Jew? What lie would cause most people to agree to worldwide government, with an international currency? Something much more terrifying would have to be in play here. Perhaps a threat from supposed “aliens”?  World leaders have openly posited that idea time and again right on through present day. Do some of them know something we don’t or at least think they do? I certainly agree with others that contend that we have been in the process of a “soft disclosure” so far as any alien/UFO concept goes. This sheds light on Scripture such as Matthew 24:24 which, in context, is describing the time period leading up to the Second Coming of Christ.

 

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

 

It is disturbing to ponder just what sorts of things it would take to potentially deceive any believer in the Lord Jesus. What would it take?   This book attempts to answer at least part of that question.

The lie referred to here is described in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 as follows:

 

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

 

Woodward’s book examines the social and cultural conditioning that we have seen through media and eerily prescient telegraphing over the years in leading science fiction materials. He also investigates the clear occult backgrounds of some of these concepts having to do with Mars which overlap into every other aspect. He engages everything from a theological vantage point with open Bible close at hand.  Nothing escapes being checked against God’s Word. This book focuses on just how much of a predominant factor the planet Mars has been and continues to increasingly be in fostering and promoting this narrative.

Woodward covers the gambit on both secular and Christian sides and finds the common denominators that clearly should send up red flags of alarm. Most likely, they will probably “find” something on Mars in the near future that will lend itself to a “full disclosure” event.
Here is a sampling of some of the items that get mentioned during the course of the book: The Face on Mars which has been prominently featured in media even before it was discovered thanks to Jack Kirby of Marvel Comics who was apparently attached to the CIA. This alone has ramifications to ponder. Is there a secret space travel program known by at least the USA and the Russians? A number of sincere people seem to think so, but why? Is it mind control, real, or something else? Toss in Tesla, Marconi, Jack Parsons, NASA, The Collins Elite, Hollywood, and a wide assortment of luminaries from past and present and what you have here in total is, as Bob Ulrich from Prophecy in the News referred to it, “the X-Files injected with truth serum!”

I can’t beat that description. The truth serum, of course, being God’s Word the Holy Bible.

One key element that drives several concepts in this book is the unknown of when Lucifer actually fell and became Satan. This is the kind of information the Bible does not spell out explicitly.

This book makes a valiant attempt to tackle that subject during the course of engaging its overall thesis. When Satan and his cast of angels rebelled it very likely shook the cosmos. There may very well have been a war of sorts. There was fallout and collateral from such an event. During the course of that event, was Mars one of their ancient outposts? Was Mars a moon for an outpost on a supposed planet Rahab, the remnants of which may be our asteroid belt of today? Did all of this happen before Adam and Eve were created? The reference to Rahab being Psalm 89:10:

“Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that I slain; thou has scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.”

 

Who or what is Rahab? If that kind of intrigue appeals to you then this book is for you. We know from the Scriptures that the Prince of the Power of the Air is Satan. We see monuments and other oddities all over the Earth that can only be aligned properly with the stars if you are looking at them from up in the sky. Angels have far less limitations than human beings so it’s hardly a stretch to imagine them coming and going in space or wherever they want.

The Scripture I’m referring to is Ephesians 2:2-3 quoted here for your convenience and context:

 

2Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

 

Some responsible speculation is not a bad thing but great care should be taken here while we hold fast to our Bibles. Doug Woodward certainly does this while mentioning these concepts so even if I have a few niggling areas of disagreement potentially it’s hardly an offense or a test of orthodoxy.

It may sound strange to apply this description to a nonfiction book but I can’t help it: This book is a fun yarn. It is enjoyable to read despite some occasionally dark and disturbing subject matter. It is obvious from reading it that Woodward himself enjoyed writing it.
I highly recommend visiting Doug Woodward’s website: http://faith-happens.com/
Here you will be able to find more information and more research in any number of areas.

Recently Doug made available all of his PowerPoint slides from his Prophecy in the News Orlando conference presentations here: http://faith-happens.com/orlando-powerpoints/ Simply use the password “jerusalem” without the quotes to access whatever interests you. Relevant to this book I would recommend giving his “Close Encounters of a Fourth Kind” and “Mars and the Evidence of a Pre-Adamic Civilization” slides close attention.

I am very eager to see what Doug Woodward’s next project is.  Stay tuned!

Watchers 7 and Further Evidence Review and Impressions

How do I describe the Watchers series for newcomers? LA Marzulli and his team come from a Christian worldview to investigate, document, and provide meaningful context for various supernatural events of “high strangeness.” They also are clamoring as Watchmen on the Wall to alert people to these events and especially their fellow Christians in the Church.

I will begin by mentioning that the production values have continued to steadily improve throughout the course of the series. You would be hard pressed to find a crew of film makers that know how to stretch a dollar out more creatively than these folks do. I must make special mention of Richard Shaw’s talents behind the camera. He has a wonderful eye and that has been readily apparent since the start of the series.

Now on to the most important aspect which is, of course, the substance:

I appreciate that great care is taken to present all sides of a given issue. The crew always brings in many people from across the spectrum of worldviews and relevant professions with respectable to lofty credentials. This is done in an effort to get as much clarity on a subject as possible. By doing this they are also able to fairly compare and contrast the differing worldviews’ take on a given subject while also finding the points of agreement.

Often times I see the accusation of “sensationalism” thrown around. The subject matter by its very nature is indeed sensational. There is no way to avoid it. Anyone that is actually familiar with LA Marzulli’s work know that he and his crew handle the subject matter very responsibly. Great care is taken to separate known fact from theories and opinions.

The main topic of Watchers 7 is the UFO Phenomenon and how much physical evidence exists thus far as it pertain to the phenomenon, what it is, and what it all means. Coming away from this work I daresay impressive inroads have been made. The thesis is that the UFO phenomenon is largely demonic or interdimensional in nature as opposed to real space aliens. Furthermore that this phenomenon is part and parcel of a much larger “great deception” setup as referenced in the Bible in  Matthew 24 where “even the elect could be deceived if that were possible.”

The Watchers 7 DVD is 83 minutes long. Time and budget only allow so much to make it on to one of these DVDs so thankfully that is where the book Further Evidence comes in.

The book picks up where Watchers 7 leaves off and it also allows further expansion of detail on the subjects in the movie. The book also covers several other topics that did not make it into the documentary so it’s well worth it. It’s high stock glossy and full of colored photos as well.   I highly recommend getting the DVD and book together as a package deal. They are well worth it. They complement each other beautifully.

The lineup of experts in their respective fields is very broad and impressive and includes scientists, theologians, journalists, and top UFO experts in and out of the United States. For example, Dr. David Jacobs is well-known in the UFO research circles as is Mexico’s Jaime Maussan. Maussan shares some footage that is truly jaw dropping. I realize that a number of these people are controversial in their own rights and I’m reasonably sure the production crew was careful to vet anything that was said or thrown their way before putting it out there.  It just has to come down to people using their own discernment and Christians being Bereans and matching things against the Scriptures ultimately.

It boggles the mind that there really is as much documentation as there is and yet it gets so little attention or respect although the winds of change have been blowing slowly but surely on that. It certainly doesn’t help things that there is so much counterfeit and fraud perpetrated. The American media is notorious for making light of UFOs in particular. In contrast, the Mexican media has had no qualms airing footage and taking the subject matter more seriously.

One of a number of criticisms I see come up is the idea that people like LA might be reading too much into or eisegeting Matthew 24 with “like the days of Noah” and what that means. Furthermore we look at Luke 21 where “days of Lot” also get thrown on the table. We all agree that rampant runaway sin definitely was the hallmark of both of those days but is that really it? It doesn’t seem that weighty to merit those two blazing neon signs from Jesus Himself. I think the work LA does is starting to show us that it means all bets are off. No, it doesn’t mean we will have 20 foot giants again but it does mean we have a genetic manipulation issue, which these UFO abductions clearly have as a theme, and we also have a growing supernatural manifestation issue.

Another concern that I see get mentioned is people expressing concerns about some of the people LA and the crew cross paths with and may even do some collaborative work with to get to the bottom of something. Just because you interview someone or work on a professional level towards a common goal for a documentary with someone does not automatically mean you endorse and agree with everything that person says or stands for. You couldn’t make a documentary at all if that were really the case. Frankly, you couldn’t get along in the real word at that rate.

As I write this, LA is running a deal right off of his own website at www.lamarzulli.net. Hit the store option. Prophecy in the News is also offering a compelling package with these important materials. Christians especially need to be armed with this critical knowledge.

I really want to see and hear a skeptic sit down and watch the DVD at least and see what answers they can come up with.

It is very sobering to hear seculars and Christians alike agree on certain broad common denominators and all agree that what we are seeing here is not benevolent and it is not going away. It means something and has all the hallmarks of something that is going to reach a pinnacle soon. There most certainly is a broad consensus of agreement on that.

I want to offer a few comments on each topic covered on Watchers 7. Let’s begin with the possible moon coverup. This was an interesting and suggestive segment that featured a film maker named Jose Escamilla.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0260181/

I am not familiar with him or his work although his work can easily be found on tlbnfilms.com or $2 rentals and such. I would like to see his film Celestial which was subject of this segment before offering too much more commentary on this area but suffice to say I would not be surprised if there is more than meets the eye so far as the moon goes. I definitely can agree with the part about the media peddling the idea for a long time that the moon’s color is white and gray as opposed to the more tan color that it really is and that clearly shows up in early photos from the late 60s. Why have they done this? What I don’t feel as confident about signing off on yet is the idea that potentially there are structures on the moon that have been blacked out although the one item mentioned at the end of the segment seemed pretty suggestive.

I will make it a point to watch Celestial in the near future and update these comments as necessary. Nothing would surprise me here so I’m not trying to imply anything negative in Mr. Escamilla’s direction. Incidentally Doug Woodward has released a new book called the Lying Wonders of Mars which goes into the same broad direction: More than meets the eye and potentially a cover up of sorts so far as our outer space information goes.

The next segment involved further research on the implant chips found in certain UFO abductees. My heart goes out to the gentleman that came in as a patient of Dr. Leir’s to have a chip removed and was generous and gracious enough to allow the film crew to follow the progress while protecting his identity. I have great sympathy for this abductee victim and others like him. I can’t even imagine what it must be like. The chip was putting out a 7/10 on a Gauss meter while still in this gentleman’s leg. As a point of reference the video camera itself was 10/10. That’s an impressive piece of tech along with the 333 Ghz transmission level.   See: http://lamarzulli.wordpress.com/tag/great-deception/

What are these chips and where do they come from? What’s the point? Are we looking at precursors or prototypes of the eventual Mark of the Beast mentioned in the book of Revelation? No one knows for sure but the question certainly seems valid given the technology and given its apparent use. The characteristics and behavior of this chip and how it interacts and connects with the human body are also worth noting.

Just since Watchers 7 was released there have already been further developments:

http://lamarzulli.wordpress.com/2014/01/06/watchers-8-exclusive-implant-removal-with-dr-leir/

This incident and what occurred here would tend to underscore a quality to these chips that begs further questioning and scrutiny. There is no way to be dogmatic about this but overall I have a lot of sympathy for the idea that these chips might be Mark of the Beast precursors given all of these characteristics.

For the folks that think abductions are either just sleep paralysis and/or everything just happens in people’s minds and there is absolutely no physical element to any of this whatsoever? How do you explain all this? What’s going on here? Where did this chip come from? What is that chip? We don’t have anything remotely as high-tech as that chip is on the streets. A chip is a physical item! Why was it implanted in this person and others like him?

There is another segment involving some footage that Dr. Leir took of a UFO over water several years ago. This footage has been vetted and deemed legitimate. It is jaw dropping footage to the point you can almost make out moving creatures in the ship if you look very carefully and slow the footage down. This footage has been verified as legitimate. I want to know what the skeptics’ answer for this is and I want to know what the people who say none of this is physical have to say about it as well? This is smoking gun footage. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUEjeYn5Obg&feature=player_embedded

That is the original version. For Watchers 7 this footage was completely cleaned up and remastered in high def to pull out as much detail as possible. Even in its original form I think people can at least appreciate what happened here. I highly recommend having your pause button ready to go when watching that footage so you can really study it and take it all in. Run it frame by frame and see what you can make of it.

Many Christians ask what does any of this have to do with the Bible, the Gospel, the end times and the rest of it? These are fair questions. I would recommend they study passages such as Genesis 6, 2 Thessalonians 2:8-10, Matthew 24, Luke 21, and Ephesians 2:2. By all means read the entire chapter and as much as you want for the sake of context. I’m simply citing the verses I want to emphasize here.

I have no doubts that much of the current UFO phenomenon that gets detailed in these works is literal Ephesians 2:2 in action and also a set up for the eventual full-fledged 2 Thessalonians 8-10 concept when the Antichrist rolls out. We are seeing the warm up right now. I certainly know and understand that some UFO sightings are man-made and there has also been and continues to be much fraud that muddies the waters. Watchers 7 and the companion book focus on the clear super/preternatural aspects.

When Jesus talks about it being “like the days of Noah and Lot” per Matthew 24 and Luke 21 we need to ask ourselves what was so distinctive and awful about those respective time periods. Rampant sin? Sure, but we’ve always had that. What else? I think it leads back to Genesis 6.  I have a hard time trying to find any other distinct elements past that.

This is a pot that is boiling over now. The key question here is: What sort of lie and great deception would be so compelling that it could “deceive the elect if that were possible?”  I think this production and its companion book go a long way to showing people at least one aspect of it.

There are some disturbing descriptions of creatures in the book of Revelation that may be more literal than any of us wanted to previously think about. You need go no further than mainstream media to see plenty of reports of lab experimentation, chimeras, and strange creatures washing up on shore. What is chilling is these are the declassified and carefully trickled out for public dissemination items. Imagine what is still classified. Why is there such an overt theme of hybridization when it comes to the UFO phenomenon? The answer is: It’s all connected to Matthew 24 and Luke 21 when Jesus described the season leading up to the Second Coming as both the Days of Noah and the Days of Lot. That means all bets are off.

I greatly appreciate that LA and his team have taken the extra time and effort to provide detailed companion books to coincide with the Watchers DVD releases. This kind of subject matter demands it. This concept started on Watchers 6 with the On the Trail of the Nephilim book. I highly recommend people pick that set up if they haven’t already. I am happy that apparently that was the start of a planned trend as we have DVD-book combo again here and if I understand correctly Watchers 8 will have On the Trail of the Nephilim 2 as a companion. Excellent!

There sadly are many in the church right now that simply are not prepared to deal with these sorts of phenomena and have no answers. Some will even scoff, mock, and ridicule those of us that pay attention and try to warn others about what is going on here. 2 Peter 3:3.

Starting with the Vatican on down, if an “alien mothership” shows up or Obama announces a careful disclosure one day in the near future, it’s a game changer and you will have many in the church who will “adjust their theology because the Bible didn’t give us all the details.”

Those of us who will be jumping up and down like maniacs warning people that these space brothers aren’t our friends will be branded heretics and dealt with accordingly. That’s at least part of the eventual great deception and I’m convinced of it. It will be part and parcel of something even bigger that will ultimately include and very likely usher in the Antichrist. It’s clear that this deception is and has been beautifully planned for thousands of years.

This video and its companion book will take you step by step through all of these things with responsibility, care, broad consensus of scholars, Scriptural backbone, and absolutely in high style thanks to Mr. Shaw.

http://lamarzulli.wordpress.com/2014/02/17/watchers-7-best-film-and-peoples-choice-awards-at-the-ufo-congressebe-film-festival/

Watchers 7 won the “Best UFO Film” and “People’s Choice” awards for Watchers 7 at the UFO Congress / EBE Film Festival near Phoenix AZ.

Hats off to them for this accomplishment. It’s well earned.  The more important item I would like to draw your attention to is LA Marzulli explaining directly what the Watchers series is all about and why they do this work.

 “For those of you who read this blog you may remember the post a while back about our implant extraction and how the implant was being hidden until I prayed and a power greater than those who were manipulating the implant showed up. Here’s the link to the post! http://wp.me/ph2yr-406

What these folks need to grasp is there is a power that is greater than the one that has deceived them.  There is a way out, a passage to freedom, a way to stop the abductions and have a normal life.

In closing today’s post:  I believe there is a supernatural component to the UFO phenomena and the abductions that often go hand in hand.  I also believe there is hope for those who have been taken all their lives.  There is a power that is greater than the ones who take without asking and His name is Yashua/Jesus.  Unfortunately, many folks have been so hurt by the church that they identify Jesus with what they experienced in church!  Added to this is many pastors who are ill equipped to deal with the abduction phenomena and will dismiss it out of hand as a mental problem.

However, we have real evidence—as seen by the implant removal—that the phenomena is real and certainly not going away.  These people need to meet the real Jesus, the one who is able to stand in the gap and deliver them from the abductions, sexual experimentation, and the implanting of objects in their bodies, and bring them to a place of deliverance.  I state this not from a rote point of view but from one who has led people out of the UFO/abduction phenomena and watched Him—the one who is greater— set the captives free!”

One detail he didn’t mention in this write up but did mention on his radio show recently was that several of the people who witnessed all of this came up to him afterward and essentially conceded that their worldview was now challenged and that they now were forced to concede that there was more than meets the eye to all of this and very likely some sort of supernatural component. This is a very important aspect of what this work is about. Pray for these folks, too.

Exposing Satan’s lies and getting people set free from them towards the saving Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is what this is about.
