I would posit that we are in the last of the last days and these birth-pains will eventually lead to the birth of the Tribulation, or The time of Jacob’s trouble. If this is the case, then how should we live? We should be bold in our proclamation of the Return of the King, Jesus. We should know prophecy and how it centers around the nation of Israel, and we should be ready to tell our friends and anyone who will listen about the coming Psalm 83 war, or any of the other prophecies which I believe are about to be fulfilled.
I raise that particular set of Biblical references because Matthew 24:37-39, right in the middle of Jesus’ discussion of the End Times (or merely the fall of Jerusalem, depending on your preferred reading), contains the line that Marzulli uses to justify his entire obsession with Nephilim:
As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
Accepting this logical incongruity, how does Marzulli then apply it to space aliens? Well, by imagining that the Nephilim are pretty much the Kanamits from the “To Serve Man” episode of the Twilight Zones. You see, in Genesis 6, God shortens the lifespan of humans from centuries down to 120 years as the first act of punishment for what Marzulli reads as unholy congress with the Nephilim. On April 16 Marzulli wrote that “I’ve been beating this drum for years now and have stated on this blog and in my books that one of the signs which hails back to the Days of Noah is the elongation of life.” Marzulli believes that space aliens (i.e., space-faring Nephilim) are using implants to change human DNA in order to elongate the human lifespan to antediluvian proportions, such as when Enoch lived 365 years. “When ET shows up, in one-mile wide craft, I would posit they will bear gifts. The first will be the energy source that makes the craft ‘anti-gravity’ and the second will be couched as a DNA upgrade to extend our life, disease free, for hundreds of years—just like the days of Noah!” Marzulli also declares that alien implants are the Mark of the Beast from Revelation 13:16-17. I am not entirely sure how an alien “DNA upgrade” would allow someone to “buy or sell” like the Mark of the Beast, but I guess I am not sufficiently versed in the genetic origins of capitalism.
But fear not! Marzulli has a range of products to help you prepare for the End Times by studying the Watchers-Nephilim, ranging from books and DVDs to a monthly magazine and a wall calendar. While mere churches might give away the secrets of the apocalypse for free, Marzulli ensures only the right people get saved by charging between $15 and $100 per product. (It’s a bargain compared to what you need to pay Scientology to get to the Xenu level.) That’s the best part about being a Nephilim theorist: Traditional Christians might agree with 1 Timothy 6:9-10 that preaching for profit is a sin, for the love of money is the root of all evil; but a Nephilim theorist ascribes all evil to non-human beings and can confidently set up a money-changing table at the Temple without fear of it being overturned.
