L. A. Marzulli: Native Americans Could Not Have Built Ohio Mounds; Therefore, They Are the Work of the Nephilim 6/1/2017
 
?Tuesday night Nephilim theorist L. A. Marzulli broadcast the latest edition of his Acceleration Radio show, and among his rightwing political commentary he paused to discuss the Great Circle Earthworks, one of the Newark Earthworks in Newark, Ohio. The earthworks are believed to have been built by the Hopewell culture in the early centuries CE. The Great Circle Earthworks are the largest of the Hopewell constructions, spanning nearly 1,200 feet in diameter and including an 8- to 13-foot-deep moat inside an earthen wall that ranges up to fourteen feet in height. At the center of the circle is the so-called Eagle Mound, where archaeologists found the remains of a wooden structure in the 1920s.

?However, Marzulli doubts all of this and instead believes that the mounds were constructed shortly after Noah’s Flood by the surviving Nephilim. His argument is essentially that Native Americans weren’t smart enough to heap dirt in big piles, or to observe the stars to align said piles with the sky:

"Native Americans didn’t have iron tools. They had flint. They had sticks, birchbark baskets, deer skin—I get that. And modern-day archaeologists insist that the circle mound was built one birchbark basket at a time or they used dogsleds and hauled the dirt. So they’re scratching the dirt with sticks and putting them (sic) in birchbark baskets. You go there, folks, you go to the Great Circle Mound in Newark, Ohio, and you tell me if that holds water in your mind, ’cause it can’t. It doesn’t work. It just doesn’t work. And there are other mounds—some of them have been destroyed—in the complex, and of course all this led to the Octagon Mound, at least a mile away from the Great Circle Mound. This was a very complex ceremonial site. Little—there’s been some archaeological work done on it, but certainly not exhaustive. And if I had the money to donate to it, the first thing I would do would be to say, “Look, let’s restore this site to what it looked like. Let’s bring all the trees out. Let’s tear all the trees out and make it so Raccoon Creek flows back in and we can get the moat working.” That’s what I would do. That’s what I would do. And also perhaps build the sacrificial altar on top of what is known as the Eagle Mound in the center of the circle. So, it’s very enigmatic. I would call this Post-Flood and also Nephilim architecture, Fallen Angel technology. Why? Because I don’t believe it was built by Native Americans. I really don’t. I don’t believe the site was built by Native Americans. In fact, it’s on the record that Native Americans didn’t—it was there when they got there. […] With all due respect to Native Americans, they didn’t build edifices like this. […] I have a theory that supernatural forces were at work."

?Marzulli added that Joseph Riverwind, the Native American Nephilim / ancient astronaut believer, confirmed that the mound was built by Nephilim, and Marzulli said that Native Americans were incapable of building with compacted dirt that doesn’t erode over time, and he argued that the mounds are preserved by demonic magic.
 
Frankly, none of the implicit racism of Marzulli’s claims is shocking, but what is surprising is that he is openly advocating for restoring what his own faith tells him is a Satanic altar! Apparently his excitement about the superpowers of the Nephilim has overwhelmed his puritanical religious impulses.

I've listened to one of their podcasts "The Blood Attraction: Cutting Calls Demons- A look at the spiritual components and ramifications of cutting and bloodletting."

I find this couple so very disturbing.

They are not licensed mental health professionals yet they claim they know how to help people who self harm and people who are suicidal.

They claim that satanic ritual abuse is prevalent. They claim that self harm attracts demons.

They say they themselves live on donations and that anyone who donates will be blessed.

In their latest newsletter they refer to critics, especially critics of their ill advised suicide prevention organizing, as "online armchair critics". They claim that criticism means we ourselves are doing nothing, sitting idly by.

That is quite the load of assumptions. They don't know the wealth of experience and training on this forum. They don't know who works in social services. They don't know who works in tribal government and health.

In their newsletter they state they want donations. They want referrals to established suicide prevention programs. They want the blessing and support of White Earth. They want referrals to a suicide hotline that agrees with their spiritual beliefs. They have started their own program called HeartCrossers.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ already exists, it is free, confidential, 24/7 available for everyone. They include resources for Native Americans https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/help-yourself/native-americans/

White Earth has a prevention program https://www.nihb.org/behavioral_health/mspi_program_native_alive.php

http://hpaied.org/publications/white-earth-suicide-intervention-team
http://www.whiteearth.com/programs/index.html@page_id=453&program_id=4.html

Instead of asking for more money for their own invasive missionary program, they could instead support programs that always exist. If they truly want to help, they could do so without soliciting funds for their own bank account.

They will be leading a tour to Israel next year.  And they continue to be very active with Brigitte Gabriel's extremist anti-Muslim group Act for America.

They're asking us to pray for... Abba? Like, the seventies disco singers? Or is this one of their new, invented, self-designated titles for themselves? It never ends with these two. How many different ethnicities have they been now? Leaders of how many different religious cults?

I think they are using this definition of Abba: http://jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/122-abba

JR says he is a "biblical researcher". He and his wife call their music (and I suppose their ministry) "First Nations/Hebraic Praise & Worship". Their new video "Every Tribe" filmed in Israel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpoBc-f4RIc is a good example of their confusing message. A child is taken by a strange guy to JR and given a necklace. I don't know why.

Nearest I can make out they are Hebrew Roots https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hebrew_Roots ministers who claim they are Native American, and that they need to bring their Hebrew Roots message to both reservations and to Israel. Plus they are spokespeople for an extremist group ACT.

Recent JR quote:

Quote
We are on the Seneca Reservation right now and seeing this Awakening from coast to coast across reservations. Sitting Bull once said if you have a drop of Indian blood you are Indian. Creator made you a masterpiece of the nations!

JR is now promoting a pyramid scheme scam called Total Life Changes,LLC. There are many consumer complaints and negative reviews online about this scam.

Quote
In my opinion, Total Life Changes is a product-based pyramid scheme that has been running for years in the United States.  They use incredible claims about their products to get people to join their business opportunity and personally purchase the products to qualify for bonuses. People who are looking to join this business opportunity are kept in the dark about some very important information in deciding if a business opportunity is worth pursing. They do not provide information on how much their representatives are making on average.  They do not provide information on retail sales. Avoid the Total Life Changes business opportunity.

In 2014:

Quote
Gerald Derstine asked us to his office to speak about the future plans of Strawberry Lake Christian Retreat Center on the White Earth Indian Reservation. Knowing that we have ministered on the same reservation we shared our ministry experience on the same reservation. Gerald Derstine told us he had been praying about what to do with the Retreat Center and that The LORD told him to give the property to us as a fulfillment of many prophetic words spoken about the camp being turned over to the Native Americans. Gerald asked us what we would do with the facility if he were to give us the deed to the property. We shared our vision for the retreat center which would effect the local reservation community as well as The Body of Messiah. Gerald seemed very happy and told us we were an answer to prayers and that he strongly believed that we are the native couple that will take operations of ministry at the retreat center to the next level.

 We were offered a place to stay at the caretakers house while we ministered in the community and a base camp of operations to futher grow our ministry if we were willing to move to White Earth, Mn.

http://firekeepersinternational.blogspot.com/2014/10/feast-of-tabernacles-2014-christian.html

Since that time there has been some sort of falling out between all the parties involved. Strawberry Lake Christian Retreat, Inc in Sept 2016 began eviction proceedings (Strawberry Lake Christian Retreat, Inc vs Joseph Riverwind, Laralyn Riverwind Case No. 03-CV-16-2220) The case was eventually dismissed, don't know if this means they came to an agreement outside court or what.

I don't know if they have found housing elsewhere.

I was wondering what had happened to their so called ministering on White Earth....I went through Jose's FB back about a year and they don't seem to mention anything about White Earth anymore. Nor do they look like they're even there.

I don't see any signs of them actually being on White Earth either. On April 8th they did a passover event on the reservation. But otherwise they say they do Saturday events at The Refuge in Detroit Lakes MN.

http://www.whiteearth.com/data/upfiles/files/Anishinaabeg%20Today/2017/May%203,%202017%20c.pdf

Although The Refuge doesn't list them on the event calendar https://www.refugeofdl.org/events

I've learned more about their controversy with Strawberry Lake Christian Retreat, Inc., through court records.

JRs = Jose Rivera and Laralyn Davis (aka Joseph and Laralyn Riverwind)

SLCR = Strawberry Lake Christian Retreat, Inc., owned by Gerald Derstine

I don't know whether SLCR is actually on White Earth, or near. Sometimes SLCR and the JRs refer to it as being on the reservation.

SLCR stated that the JRs had an oral agreement with them: live on property while paid $1,000 a month in exchange for work
SLCR became unsatisfied with the JRs, asked them to leave the property.

Quote
Because of major theological differences, your work ethics have not been compatible with Strawberry Lake Christian Retreat Staff workers and management. The above differences have caused an obvious negative attitude amongst the workers and caused inappropriate worker clashes.

JRs refused to leave and they stopped working. SLCR filed an eviction complaint. But  JRs had filed bankruptcy, so that stayed the eviction.

SLCR asked that the automatic stay be lifted. Several days later, SLCR withdrew that motion.

JRs represent this as SLCR being dishonest and breaking their word.

SLCR wanted the JRs to live on the land with some payment, work on the land, and eventually be on the board of a future nonprofit that would pay off the SLCR income tax debt. Gerald Derstine did a "passing of the baton" event with the JRs (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JFP7UyHraY), spoke of his vision to turn the property over to Native peoples. But that was all symbolic, he did not actually give the property to the JRs.

From 2011:

Quote
One person posted that I claimed to be Creek/Seminole when I was merely giving the reference from where I heard a story that I posted, which I personally heard during a private Muscogee Creek/Seminole Green Corn Bvsketv festival.
