Philosophy, Science, and Revelation (1219 Words)

Since the apostasy, Philosophy and Science have battled for control, ignoring Revelation. Through the apostasy people were ruled over by Philosophers, until the people got fed up with being oppressed, and rebelled. The people debunked oppressive traditions with Science, but everyone has totally forgotten about Revelation.

The word “dogma” has nothing to do with the mother of a dog (dog-ma, …get-it), …that would be a bitch- a female dog, wolf, fox, or otter (not being crude, but that just goes to show you how what might seem obvious may not be so obvious. Besides I never thought that I’d ever use the word bitch). Dogma is a principle or set of principles laid down by an authority as “incontrovertibly true.” This sets the stage for the battle of the renaissance (1400 AD-1800AD).

Philosophy represented “religion,” and held the power over the perceptions of people’s minds for over a thousand years. Catholic Priests leaned toward the teachings of philosopher Aristotle, who defined God by stating what he knew that God wasn’t (or at least thought he knew). For example, we can’t say that God exists, all we can safely say is that God is not nonexistent, …or we should not say that God is wise, but we can say that God is not ignorant. They defined God by saying what He isn’t, rather than knowing what He is. The Priest was considered the mouth piece of God, and could expound the scriptures, making the translation “incontrovertibly true,” …and none could refute, despite that they were wrong. Priests settled the matter by stating their authority, and pounded in their stakes to make their claims.

The argument that has discredited religion, in favor of science, was based upon the reading of the scriptures. Priest’s claimed that their authority gave them power to expound the scriptures. They used their authority to expound scripture, claiming, the Bible says that the Earth is the center of the universe. This perspective was labeled Geocentric, or Earth-centeric. However, scientist Galileo, read the same scriptures a little differently than the Priests. He stated that the Bible could be read to express an Earth point of view, and nothing more. And then Galileo turned his telescope to the sun, moon, and stars, proving that Earth wasn’t the center of the universe. Priest’s, rather than repenting and fixing where they were wrong, they cast out Galileo’s theory, and called it heresy.  Today, it is common knowledge that the Priest’s were wrong, and Galileo was right, proving that a priest’s authority doesn’t control the correct understanding of scriptures. Scientists have used this case to support that there is no God, …only the natural laws of science. The battle between Philosophy and Science continues, as no one pays much attention to revelation. God has become an argument between religionists and scientists, who have never been in God’s presence.

Revelation flies under the radar of the brightest minds, only appearing in simple men like Abraham, Moses, Joseph Smith, etc. The philosophy’s of men mingled with scripture has never produced the presence of God. And despite the sophistication of machines, computers, and programming, scientists have never blasted off into outer space, to place an American flag in the presence of God either. Yet, we occupy most of our lives trying to balance between Philosophy and Science, never knowing God, never ascending, remaining cast out of His presence, rather than returning. Revelation is available to all, if they would receive it.

To receive it, revelation requires a pure heart, and purity is always tested. The veil is over our senses, not over our feelings. The heart governs feelings or desires. As our desires are to God, our hearts become purer, and our feelings can lead our actions, until our senses catch up. Revelation grows from feelings, to hearing, to seeing, to touch, etc. The scriptures refer to the heart as being the source of healing the deaf (those who cannot hear the Lord’s voice), the blind (those who cannot see His face and know that He is), and the lame (those who cannot walk back into His presence). All of it refers to revelation.

There is only one revelation, and it is the unveiling of God, the source of all light. The heart’s purity must be tested at every step, before more revelation will be given. The purification-work to hear the Lord’s voice is the effort we give to study the scriptures. The test comes, when a servant speaks with the voice of the Lord, disguised as a stranger, a bum on the street, or a son/brother, …can you hear the voice of the Lord and act? Acting upon His voice produces another test, as the Lord requires your actions to go against the logic and understanding of the world. For instance: Abraham sacrificing Isaac, Joseph being sold into slavery, the brother of Jared crossing the ocean, Moses parting the Red Sea, Lehi/Nephi leaving Jerusalem, etc.  Each of their hearts were tested at a higher degree, and the revelation they received matched. Ultimately, all of them offered all things on the sacrificial altar. Rather than a symbolic offering, a son or daughter of God must offer all things on the sacrificial altar, in exchange for walking back, for ascending, for the final unveiling, the one revelation, the unveiling of the source of all light, walking back into the presence of God.

Conclusion: Zion is a people who are of one heart and one mind, with no poor among them. I am certain that we have hearts of great potential. But our hearts are stuck on the things of this world, following after the traditions of men (philosophies of men mingled with scripture), depending upon science for our conveniences, that our efforts to balance our lives between philosophy and science have left our family outside of the presence of God!

The presence of God doesn’t remove the problems of the world, it offers a completely different paradigm that makes the problems of the world so insignificant, and produces power to overcome the world by faith. Moses’ problems with Egypt never disappeared, but God parted the Red Sea. Enoch’s problems never disappeared, but the city of Enoch was taken up. Noah’s problems never disappeared, but within the ark Noah was preserved. Moses, Enoch, and Noah had a paradigm shift by entering into the presence of the Lord. That has been available to all who would have a pure heart, hear the voice of the Lord, see His face, and walk back into His presence.

You have been invited to the wedding feast. You must have on a wedding garment, or else be bound hand and foot and thrown out. The sign in the heaven on Sept 23, 2017 is the sign of Jupiter and Virgo, crowned with a crown of 12 stars, standing on the moon, clothed in the sun. Symbolically, it refers to the family of God, built upon revelation (moon = wisdom or revelation), clothed in the robes of light (the sun), crowned with the glory of the heavens (12 star constellations represented by a 12 star crown).

We are required to see the things we learned in the temple as instructions. We must receive those instructions and find our way back. We must access the power of our family to do the work of knowing the words of Christ. Lets work!

By The Same Spirit (1579 Words)

Traditions aren’t as easy to break free from when you don’t know that they are there. Once you know that they exist, the escape route is hard to find, because you honestly can’t tell what is true or what is tradition. The way to get through to the heavens, without being dependent upon the arm of flesh, is to study the scriptures By The Same Spirit that they were written in.

Trap of Tradition: Traditions aren’t as easy to break free from when you don’t know that they even exist.This was a huge breakthrough for me, as I have been taught practically all my childhood life to follow the leader, conform to the institution, and don’t step outta-line. The teaching was a subtle corporate teaching, and began in primary, singing, “Do as I’m Doing, Follow, Follow Me.” We moved from clapping our hands, to patting our heads, to repetitive testimony-bearing, to haircuts and acceptable church dress attire, to seminary “scripture mastery,” to serving missions using memorized catch-phrases, …finally, into becoming “The Leader.” From primary we were conditioned to beg to be the leader, …but as an adult, you actually had the sustaining vote of hundreds of members, to confirm you as the leader. As the leader, you encourage singing “Follow the Prophet,” because your position as a ward or stake leader only exists through the sustaining of the Prophet, and to debunk a Prophet’s authority is to remove all power in your own authority. And now we are in a pickle, aren’t we? The scriptures contradict this thinking, saying, don’t trust in the arm of flesh, don’t make the arm of flesh your arm, so we make the justification that when a prophet speaks, it’s as if God is speaking, therefore trusting in a Prophet isn’t trusting in the arm of flesh, …so “…Follow the Prophet, he holds all the keys.” This is what is meant by being left to kick against the pricks and fight against the saints (D&C 121). Traditions are so well hidden, until something opens your eyes to see it, you could go your entire life not recognizing that someone lied to you!

Escape Route: However, once you know that these false traditions exist in you, the escape route is still hard to find. Depending on how old you are when you discovered these false traditions, you may have built your entire life, centered on those traditions, amassing your wealth upon it’s principles, accumulating treasures in the earth, raising your children, grand children, and great grand children the same way, …thus, making uncovering greater truths, contradicting your successful traditions, seem embarrassing, destructive, and impossible!!! In this condition of in-between, you honestly can’t tell what is true or what is tradition. Even scripture study is painted with the brush strokes of an institution, such that you cannot seem to see any other way to interpret them, other than the way the institution has drilled it into you. In this case, the advantage goes to the children. Children haven’t been deeply rooted in the ideas of the world, making it easier for them to change from deeply rooted traditions because they aren’t so deeply rooted. But change to what???

Christ’s atonement is the only Escape Route! When you finally wake up to the awful situation by which you are bound, …then you will realize that Christ is the only one you can trust to know what to change into and how to make the change. The Lord said you must become precisely what He is; you must be Christ. Lectures on Faith teaches that Christ is the prototype of a saved being. Scriptures teach that when you see Christ, you will know Him, because you will be like Him. He performed the atonement, so He understands who you are and the difficulties you face, …because He has overcome them all. Thus, His role as savior is to do the saving. And He hires no one for that job (2 Nephi 9:41). But, you must first believe in Him.

When you begin to believe in Christ’s ability to repair you, that is when you start believing in the atonement, and can begin your journey with Him because He is the only one who atoned. The journey takes time. It starts slow, but gains momentum, and produces in abundance! A summary of what you will be progressing through is found in the seven beatitudes, presented in order:

  1. Poor in Spirit
  2. Mourn
  3. Meek
  4. Hunger & Thirst after Righteousness
  5. Mercy
  6. Pure in Heart
  7. Peace Makers.

I’ll not go through them here, but each step is accumulative, so you never check it off! Instead, you get added unto. When you have endured through one step, naturally, you will be introduced to the next step, …which will introduce new challenges in both the next step and the first combined. By the time you have accomplished the seventh step (Peacemaker), no one will need to tell you how Poor in Spirit you really are, because you already know!

Philosophers, scholars and church authorities will try to convince you that they know the answer for your life. Those awake to the awful situation will quickly realize that they all sound like confusion, static, and noise. Every man is exactly what the scriptures have identified as “the arm of flesh.” Then how the hell are we supposed to begin the journey if we can’t trust men in the flesh? Aren’t prophets supposed to be trusted to tell the truth? Aren’t they men in the flesh? NO, we don’t trust prophets, we hearken to them, and then we trust The Spirit to teach us the truth of all things. We never trust in the arm of flesh. We seek The Spirit of God!

The Spirit Leads: The way to get through to the heavens, without being dependent upon the arm of flesh, is to study the scriptures By The Same Spirit that they were written in. Right away, you must develop the skill of receiving revelation. It is revelation that is supposed to grow in you. Anyone can read the scriptures, and many have, without the Spirit of Revelation. Reading this way will not produce the promised results. Church authority, academia, ancient literature, languages, and credentials cannot understand the scriptures without The Same Spirit that animated the author who wrote it. They have no advantage over the Poor in Spirit, the farm boy, the child, and the unlearned. The opposite is true, those who are Poor in Spirit, a humble farm boy, a meek child, and a mourning unlearned man has far greater advantage to know the scriptures By The Same Spirit.

The world would teach you otherwise. But, when was the last time you took a college course producing an ascension? When have you been taught by your clergy priesthood authority how to see the Lord face to face in the flesh? When did academic achievement in literature, languages, and worldly credentials produce your calling and election sure? On the other hand, Abraham was Poor in Spirit. Joseph who was sold into Egypt was too. Joseph Smith had the heavens opened to him. None of them trusted in the arm of flesh, but all of them read the words of Christ By The Same Spirit that they were written in, …and each one walked into the presence of Christ in the flesh, was redeemed from the fall, and had the heavens opened and accessible to them. That’s a good place to begin our journey with Christ!

Conclusion: The journey with Christ begins when you realize only He has the power to save you from your state of darkness, ignorance, and death. When you wake up to this, the first step is to pray and study the words of Christ in scripture By The Same Spirit that they were written in. Revelation will grow within you, until you are at-one-with-Christ, being redeemed from the fall, brought back into His presence, and crowned with glory and power.

Begin your journey now while the waters are still gentle, before the floods. Enter the ark before the rains begin falling, and your time for preparation has past. Noah was merciful when he didn’t allow others in the ark. The ark is a covenant. Allowing people in the ark who weren’t prepared required that they take a covenant that they weren’t able to keep. If they entered, and later broke the covenant, not only would they loose their physical life, but they would become perdition, loosing their ETERNAL LIFE.

Accepting a covenant cannot be taken lightly. It requires the preparation of both heart and mind so that you keep the covenant, and benefit from the blessings of it’s protection in the darkness ahead. Work in the scriptures, By The Same Spirit that they were written in, is absolutely necessary before accepting a covenant and entering the ark. Together, many hands make light work, …so lets work together. In Zion, it will be merciful to refuse entry for the same reason as it was merciful for Noah to deny entry into the ark. In the coming times of darkness, Zion will be the only protection.

Men, step up, by providing and protecting. Provide your family with the necessary light in the words of Christ. Offer your family the protection of God, refusing to trust in the arm of flesh! Be filled with The Same Spirit that animated all sons of God, all patriarchal fathers,  …precisely the same Spirit that Christ shares with the Father. Be at-one-with-THEM!

 

Last Shall Be First (1565 Words)

The prophesy that the Last Shall Be First is a marker for the last days. Everyone must self-identify by what you choose as most important. Those who are His sheep will hear His voice, whether it is by His voice or the voice of whom He chooses as a servant, it is the same.

The Last Shall Be First points to the gathering of the repentant gentiles. After Christ’s resurrection, the apostles were permitted to teach the gospel to the gentiles for the first time. They were the last to be preached to, as the gentiles were categorized as everyone else. In mercy, the Lord extended His invitation to all, but did He? Truth is, even though the Lord extended the invitation to all, He also knew that only His sheep would hear His voice and be gathered. So the gospel went to the gentiles, for the purpose of finding His sheep among them. The Lord repeatedly teaches that He will not leave His sheep comfortless. He promised that He would gather them. The question has always been, who are His sheep?

Since the gentiles were last, the prophesy states that the Last Shall Be First. Joseph Smith, in the Kirtland dedicatory prayer, identified the saints as being associated with the gentiles (D&C 109:60). Nephi, in chapter 13 & 14 of 1Nephi, tells of the founders of America as gentiles, and the restoration coming through the gentiles, supporting Joseph Smith’s identification, at the dedication of the Kirtland temple, as the LDS being gentiles too (1Nephi 13:34-42). The Book of Mormon supports the truths of the Bible, just as it was supposed to, but the LDS gentile saints have been under condemnation for not applying it’s truths since 1832, less than three years after being established as a church (D&C 84:54-58). At one point the LDS church cut out the lectures on faith (1922), and by the 1950’s BYU professors were trying to get rid of the Book of Mormon altogether, saying that it was pushing some of the greatest minds out of the church. It wasn’t until the 1960’s that BYU offered a Book of Mormon class and made it mandatory for freshmen to take, only after Hugh Nibley made an argument of it’s legitimacy, through ancient archeological records. Still, the LDS saints didn’t take the Book of Mormon seriously, until Ezra Taft Benson reprimanded the saints in 1986, telling them that the condemnation of 1832 is still the churches condemnation in 1986. Despite the church’s multi-billion dollar corporation status, it has failed to have the condemnation removed by the Lord as a whole, playing right into the prophesy of the last days gentiles, made by the Lord Himself in the Americas, that they would reject “HIS” fulness (which is received in the presence of the Lord in the flesh):

 3 Nephi 16:10-16

“10. And thus commandeth the Father that I should say unto you: At that day when the Gentiles shall sin against my gospel, and shall reject the fulness of my gospel, and shall be lifted up in the pride of their hearts above all nations, and above all the people of the whole earth, and shall be filled with all manner of lyings, and of deceits, and of mischiefs, and all manner of hypocrisy, and murders, and priestcrafts, and whoredoms, and of secret abominations; and if they shall do all those things, and shall reject the fulness of my gospel, behold, saith the Father, I will bring the fulness of my gospel from among them.”

When the fulness is rejected, the Lord takes the offering of His fulness from among the gentiles, such that they cannot have it because they reject it. Those who reject the gift only do so by not receiving it. The presence of the Lord in the flesh is the invitation of the fulness, written in the Book of Mormon. But the condemnation of the LDS gentile saints is proof of the rejection of the invitation for the fulness because they failed to repent and remember the covenant of the Book of Mormon, not only to say, but to do accordingly (D&C 84:57). When the LDS gentile saints reject the fulness, then…

“11. And then will I remember my covenant which I have made unto my people, O house of Israel, and I will bring my gospel unto them.

12. And I will show unto thee, O house of Israel, that the Gentiles shall not have power over you; but I will remember my covenant unto you, O house of Israel, and ye shall come unto the knowledge of the fulness of my gospel.”

Here the Lord promises the House of Israel, whoever that is, to come to a knowledge “OF” the fulness. Right now, in the traditions of the world, those who are the House of Israel don’t even realize that seeing the Lord in the flesh is even possible to them. They have been filled with unbelief’s. Here, the Lord says that they will finally believe it, …and the FAHER said that some of the repentant LDS gentile saints can too:

“13. But if the Gentiles will repent and return unto me, saith the Father, behold they shall be numbered among my people, O house of Israel.

14. And I will not suffer my people, who are of the house of Israel, to go through among them, and tread them down, saith the Father.

15. But if they will not turn unto me, and hearken unto my voice, I will suffer them, yea, I will suffer my people, O house of Israel, that they shall go through among them, and shall tread them down, and they shall be as salt that hath lost its savor, which is thenceforth good for nothing but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of my people, O house of Israel.

16. Verily, verily, I say unto you, thus hath the Father commanded me—that I should give unto this people this land for their inheritance.”

A land of inheritance awaits the House of Israel who self-identify by removing the condemnation, not only saying, but doing as it has been given. Not only is the fulness being offered, it is required of all who would be numbered as House of Israel, preserved from the lion who goes through and teareth to pieces and treads down.

Recently, a scripture came to mind, and a different understanding popped up out of nowhere.

3 Nephi 13:33

“33. But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Seek “first” was not an instruction of order, where you first serve a mission, then you get an occupation and get rich. Sadly, I did think that at one point in my life. It’s not a checklist item like pay your tithing and your financial worries will somehow mend itself, or give one day to the Lord a week, and you will gain treasures of the earth, …another idea hinted at, eluded to, and hoped for, as a tradition of false belief, or unbelief, in the LDS mentality. Rather, seeking first, was intended as “most important,” …meaning more importantly than anything else, everything else, all the time. This is the kind of attitude that  makes God and His kingdom the central reason for all things. Everyone must self-identify by what you choose as most important, at all times, and in all places. 

Those who are His sheep will hear His voice, whether it is by His voice or the voice of whom He chooses as a servant, it is the same.

Conclusion: The day of the gentile began at the resurrection of Christ. The sign of the end of the day of the gentile, in my opinion, is the eclipse that cut across America alone, on Aug 21, 2017. An honest reading of 3 Nephi 16, and 2 Nephi 28, clearly identifies the condition of the LDS church, who has failed, and continues to fail at removing the condemnation of 1832.

The realization of Revelations 12 has been in our skies since November 2016, as Jupiter entered the womb of the star constellation Virgo. As recently as Sept 9, 2017 Jupiter has left the womb of Virgo, a symbolic birth of the King Planet, after spending nine months within Virgo’s belly (the normal length of human gestation). On September 23, 2017 the royal family will be “crowned” by twelve stars (9 in Leo, the Lion of Israel constellation, and 3 planets: Mercury, Venus, and Mars) atop the head of the constellation Virgo, clothed in the sun (“robes” of light), with the moon at her feet (feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace), as told in Rev 12:1-2. All kinds of assumptions are being made, as people read their traditions into the Book of Revelations. That book was written for our day. Joseph Smith considered it the easiest book to read. It was written for those who know ye the Lord, who have laid hold on Him, for their preparation for His appearance. Read the entire chapter with the “KEY” knowledge or understanding that the woman is wisdom, or revelation, and the child is the birth of the kingdom of God, or the family of God, or in other words Zion.

Suddenly, what Christ wrote concerning the end of the day of the gentiles coincides with the birth of the kingdom of God, the family of God, or Zion, …made known through signs in the heavens, …in fulfillment to prophesy in the Book of Revelations. These are exciting times we live in.

40 Day Literature (1187 Words)

You’ve probably never heard of 40 Day Literature, …so I’d love to be the first to give you an introduction. After His resurrection, the Bible tells us that Christ spent 40 Days with an inner-group of people, before leaving to tend to His other sheep, which were not of that fold. What was taught during the 40 Days were unknown for ages, …until a discovery in 1945 called the Nag Hammadi Scriptures. Since then, other archeological findings have been discovered, supporting the 40 Day Literature as “temple-texts” of the ancient Christians.

Scholars deny the fact that there were temple-texts from ancient Christianity, and the 40 Day Literature discovery and recent findings negates their claims. The argument by the scholars was founded on the absence of ancient documents. The Bible eludes to it’s existence in it’s deep symbolisms, barely surviving through the dark and middle ages, but symbolism escapes the minds of scholars steeped in the traditions of this world. In their ignorance, they put aside plain and precious truths, simply because they don’t understand it. I’ll give you a brief history, as context to understanding the break through that the 40 Day temple-texts have made.

After Christ’s departure to the other sheep, the apostles, connected and sealed to Christ, taught the people. Few received their truths, and the world hated them, killing them to cover their sins. The last to leave was John the Beloved, who walked away, according to record, at about 110 AD. Although John’s departure marked the completion of the apostasy, it was in full sway long before. But, we’ll take 110 AD as a marker of the apostasy. Scholars call the time between 110 AD and the council of Nicea in 325 AD “THE GAP.” They call it that because records from that time have gone missing. Those at Nicea did some history deleting, so that Christianity would not reflect on the truth that condemned them, keeping only the truths that applauded them. The Bible is a product surviving the Nicean Creed, it’s deep symbolism still somewhat in tact because of the ignorance of the council at Nicea, …but many plain and precious truths have been removed pushing the deep symbolism even deeper. The death blow of Christianity was delivered in Nicea at the end of “THE GAP.” Since then, Christianity went through the dark ages.

The renaissance period began a thousand years later, in 1400 AD. Renaissance is a french word, literally meaning: “reawakening” or “rebirth.” This was the age of the rebellion of the domination of the Orthodox Catholic Church (institution). The word “orthodox” literally means: conforming to what is generally or traditionally accepted as right or true; established and approved. The renaissance was a point of conflict between traditions (orthodox) and reawakening (renaissance). This was the time of Bach, Bethoven, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Isaac Newton, etc. Only after the renaissance, America is established. Imagine that, a pattern of breaking free from traditions of orthodoxy, leading to a rebirth of truth, progressing into the establishment of the promised land of America, and falling into false traditions of apostasy through traditions of orthodoxy all over again (today). Can someone say, “Pride Cycle?” Can I get an “AMEN?”

So, fast forward through the restoration of Joseph Smith, the revelations of the BOM, D&C, and POGP, along with the inspired translations of the Bible by JS. The restoration broke free of orthodox traditions, offering baptism as a symbol of rebirth. Considering the scales of time, the discovery of the Nag Hammadi scriptures arrives on the scene at about the same time as the greats of the renaissance. The 40 Day Literature appears to be a temple-text, hidden up through “THE GAP” and uncovered in 1947, from the dust of the Earth. Within them we learn that it’s main focus is, …wait for iiiiiiiittt, …ASCENSION! Whaaaaaaat?! Yup, it was a temple-text, pointing to conversing with the Lord through the veil, being guided by the Lord, until you have returned into His presence in the flesh.

The scholars ask, “Where are the buildings like the temple of Solomon.” Scholars cannot see outside of their own personal experiences, telling them that …temples must be this, …and must look like that, …and must be made of such and such. They are trying to fit a temple into a box of their own false traditions of unbelief. While King Solomon’s temple was a temple similar to the thinking of the minds of scholars, it wasn’t the typical temple. Moses’ temple was a portable tabernacle. Joseph of Egypt had an Egyptian looking temple. Abraham and Jacob’s temple were a pile of stones on a mountain, and Adam’s temple was an altar. But scholars have created in their minds the traditional orthodoxy image of a temple, and can’t seem to see anything else outside of their traditions.

What was taught during the 40 Days were unknown for ages, …until a discovery in 1945. Since then, other archeological findings have been discovered, supporting the 40 Day Literature as “temple-texts” of the ancient Christians. They tell of “Essene” temples, in caves no less. At the time of Isaiah, the temple had been corrupted as High Priests used their authority over temple worship, to gut the temple, change the ordinances, and govern entry by the amount of sacrificial offerings made by the people (sounding familiar?). During the corruption of authority, High Priests who desired to maintain the purity of the temple left into the deserts (like Lehi), practicing the ordinances and rituals as best as possible, as it was given in scripture, unchanged, undiluted, and unmolested. They practiced these ordinances and rituals in caves, to remain hidden from the larger controlling High Priests who were in control of King Solomon’s temple. They were called Rechabites (re-ka-bites), and later named Essenes (es-scenes). Their descendants were the Samaritans, the first people Christ went, to preach. The story of the woman at the well, was Christ at Jacob’s well (a temple-site), …and the woman was a Samaritan, a descendant of the Essene-cave-temple-people.

Other discoveries of Stonehenge tells us that the stones were aligned with the stars, solstices, and equinoxes, so that people who knew the heavens could do on earth as it is done in heaven. Other discoveries have identified similar traditions of the Egyptians, dating back to over 4,000 BC. Another site, called Gobekli Tepe, is being referred to by archeologists as the worlds’ first temple, dating back to 10,000 BC. What’s it made of? Stones aligned with the star constellations, positioned according to cardinal North, South, East, West directions, able to identify solstices and equinoxes, with carvings of ASCENSION within it.

Conclusion: Gang, there’s a pattern, a type and shadow, a groove, set up by God for those who have eyes to see and ears that hear. The pride cycle goes from false traditions, to rebirth, to restoration, to promised land. But those who inherit the promised land, if they don’t continue in light and truth, reaching the heavens, using the ordinances and rites of the temple to ASCEND, …they will forfeit their gift and fall back into apostasy. You must put off your false traditions of unbelief, awake, and arise. This is the break through that the 40 Day temple-texts have made.

PEACE!

 

 

 

Totally Confused! (872 Words)

Mom’s last response left me Totally Confused. I guess the previous blog addressed that revelation comes in the form of both clarity and confusion, so I shouldn’t be surprised at the confusion. The missing point was the second comforter.

The last blog was based on the scripture John 14:5 “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” In this context Christ is speaking the words, but somehow Mom attributes this as bad advice from me, by relating it to the woman who was healed for touching the hem of Christ’s garment. I wrote about that woman, in a blog called, “Her Faith Made Her Whole…” (Aug 28, 2017). This was Mom’s response:

“Your interpretations are interesting. I wonder what the woman who touched the hem of the Savior’s garment did in keeping the commandments.”

The woman who touched Christ’s hem had faith, and Christ identified her faith for making her whole. The woman could not be healed without exercising her faith properly. Had she touched Pilate’s hem, Judas Iscariot’s hem, or even Peter’s hem, her faith would not have yielded the same result. She “CORRECTLY” went to Christ.

 

I don’t think the Savior, our Lord, loves like you say.

Like I say, or like He said? I didn’t quoin that scripture. Those were Christ’s words. He said it, and I merely quoted it. If that isn’t how the Savior loves, then He lied when He said it, …and that doesn’t make sense, does it?

“I certainly don’t love my children according to how very strictly they keep the commandments. I love them as they learn how to handle their agency, never do I exact of them a., b., & c. in order for me to love them. There was a time when you, yourself, told me that it is not the commandments that will help us ascend …… And now the Mormons are missing the message!?!”

Let’s be clear, I have stated this over and over again, you are saved by grace, after all that you can do. Your obedience doesn’t “deserve” anything. It is the grace of God, and His mercy, that elevates you and your efforts. But, you seem to think that God doesn’t require your efforts. He requires a., b., & c. to express your love to Him. Again, you get confused about who truly is in question. It’s you, not Him in question. Your love is in question to the Lord. He gave the option in John 14:5, not me.

“I am telling you my dear son, build, build, build. Draw people to Christ and stop trying to turn them away from the Mormon Church. Call us to read our scriptures and not to investigate the church for every possible flaw to downgrade. Lift our eyes to the heavens instead of suspiciously digging through our personal faults.”

I guess the previous blog addressed that revelation comes in the form of both clarity and confusion, so I shouldn’t be surprised at the confusion accompanying this response. It too is revelation, not only of who God is not, but who you are, and where your faith resides. There’s a lot of work to do, if this is the only response to every uniquely different blog I have written. I don’t get it, I write about totally different topics, but the response remains the same. Have you read the passages? Have you pondered the possibility that this is the truth? Or have you been so long trained in this gentile circus that you too won’t consider the power within you to awake and arise, breaking free of the bondage and captivity, seeing yourself equal to the prophet that the LDS keeps telling you to follow?

You were so busy seeking flaws in me, that you missed the point. It was the second comforter. Talk about missing the mark. I showed, yet another scripture supporting what I have been saying from the beginning, but you’re so busy protecting your church and it’s “ritual” ascension, that you’re going to miss your chance for a “literal” ascension.

Conclusion: Now this last part I know so well. You have ended all your confusing comments this way. But, this I actually believe:

“When I say I love you, my son, I truly, sincerely mean every word I say. Love emanates from the giver and therein lies the real message. Come unto Christ. This message is for all men. Much love for you, Your Mom.”

If there is one thing I am certain of, it’s your love for me. I hope to make my love for you just as certain. You dislike my approach because it unveils things of the church that you would rather not address. However, I speak the truth, and the truth unveils the things of the church that has gone unaddressed for so long, that it holds you hostage. So, while you might think that I am attacking you, because I am attacking your church, and you see no difference between you and your church, …I am not doing that, and the church is not you. I love you, and that is why I unveil the ugly truths. But, …I only do it by adding further light and truth, to replace the darkness now occupying you! And for that, …YOU’RE WELCOME!

If You Love Me… (1124 Words)

The Lord has established a clear method of expressing Love towards Him saying, If You Love Me… Only those who love the Lord hear the end of that phrase, “keep my commandments.” Two comforters are promised all who love the Lord by keeping His commandments. While the first comforter seems to be very familiar, the second comforter has gone missing from our LDS vocabulary, since the death of Joseph and Hyrum Smith, and must return.

If you love me, is a condition that the Lord has communicated for all to know how they can express their love towards Him. The coldness of the world is a result of the love of Christ running cold. As the love of Christ runs colder, darkness increases in men, and light decreases. As darkness replaces the light, men’s hearts fail them, and contention, destruction, and death is the result. The prophesy describes these last times as “…walking in darkness at noon day.” However, protection from the end times contention, destruction, and death, is offered by Christ through a covenant. Keepers of the covenant express their love towards Christ, …and Christ, in exchange gives them more and more light. Light dispels the darkness, until you are full of light, …even among those who are cold, in utter darkness.

Side Note: During the totality of the eclipse, at it’s darkest moment, temperatures dropped by up to 20 degrees Farhenheit.  This is a type and a shadow of the drastic effect darkness in the world will have on the hearts of men, as the light of Christ is withdrawn, leaving people to their own devices.

Only those who love the Lord hear the end of the phrase, those who love me, “keep my commandments.” The Lord is clear that those who love Him will pay attention to what He commands. The scriptures are compiled of commandments given by the Lord. Those who love Christ would do well to show it by how they study their scriptures, to know what Christ has commanded in the past. Those who don’t love the Lord don’t need to confess not loving the Lord, they simply don’t read his words and don’t keep his commandments. The scriptures already assumes rejection from the world. The Lord extends His arms to those who are His sheep, by telling them “This is how you love me.”

Anciently, this statement of how you love Christ, in Greek, translates better than in English. “Keep my commandments” translated from Greek is: “Stand watch, like a sentry, awaiting my every command.” This instruction improves upon “keep my commandments”  because the commandments are not statically found in scriptures alone. The static scripture does offer examples of the Lords commandments. However, the scriptures are most effectively used to teach you how to hear the voice of the Lord, literally hearing His every command to you. The Greek clearly expresses that. Those who love the Lord will stand watch like a sentry, a guard, a soldier stationed to keep guard or to control access to a place, …and await the Lord’s every command (His voice). “Keep my commandments” just doesn’t offer the same depth, like the Greek. Our sacrament prayer supports the Greek, as the end of both prayers request that Christ’s spirit “…always be with you.” The static scriptures are meant to be read dynamically, so that a transition can be made from static words, to be instructed by the literal voice of the Lord Himself, guiding you to become like Him.

Two comforters are promised to all who love the Lord by keeping His commandments. The first comforter is the Holy Ghost. His role is to convey truth, understanding and knowledge. It is not to convey emotions, as we have come to associate. By the power of the Holy Ghost you can know the truth of all things. The first comforter was intended to lead to the second comforter. When you have established a foundation in truth, understanding and knowledge, by loving the Lord, by keeping His commandments, by standing watch like a soldier obeying His every command, the second comforter can come to you.

While the first comforter seems to be very familiar, the second comforter has gone missing from our LDS vocabulary, since the death of Joseph and Hyrum Smith, and must return. The second comforter is nothing less than entering into the presence of Christ in the flesh.

D&C 130:3

“3. John 14:23—The appearing of the Father and the Son, in that verse, is a personal appearance; and the idea that the Father and the Son dwell in a man’s heart is an old sectarian notion, and is false.”

John, the Beloved of Christ, testified of a personal witness of Christ and the Father, for every saint to accomplish, while in the flesh. The early saints, a year before Joseph and Hyrum’s death, doubted the idea, and the revelation was produced to clear up the misconception. The revelation confirms that it is a “personal appearance,” just as Joseph Smith received, just as Lehi, Nephi, the brother of Jared, and all who are just and true or just men made perfect, had received. The LDS temple endowment points to it, but the saints have preferred “the ritual” presence of the Lord over “the actual” presence of the Lord. Governing temple recommends has turned into power over governing the presence of the Lord, since the LDS only believe in a ritual presence. The presence of the Lord has gone missing in the LDS doctrine. The subject matter has been buried, and the vacancy of this doctrine has been replaced by temple rituals alone. We have reduced our doctrines to sectarian notions, which are false.

Conclusion: The doctrine of the second comforter must return to us. It is the second comforter that gives value to the first comforter, which gives value to hearing the voice of the Lord, which gives value to keeping the commandments, which gives value to reading the words of Christ, which gives value to the persons who love the Lord with all their heart, mind and soul. The second comforter is precisely what the Book of Mormon instructs all to receive. Those in Zion will all know the Lord personally. None need say to them, “…know ye the Lord, for all will know Him.”

Christ will not sprinkle pixie-dust to make you a God. He will guide you. He will walk by your side. He will instruct you. He will abide in you, as your mind and will aligns with Him. But you must do the work. You must learn and do. You cannot skip steps. You cannot avoid the work. It is through the work that you obtain confidence. It is through the difficulty that miracles occur. The real miracle is you!

Clarity and Confusion (1500 Words)

Revelation offers greater value when you are able to recognize both Clarity and Confusion. Even in the Confusion, God is making Himself available, providing room for those who want to change. Although confusion has great value when teaching correct principles of God, Clarity offers the greatest potential for progression when your hearts are softened to the words of Christ. Now is the time to search the words of Christ diligently, expecting to receive revelation through both Confusion and Clarity.

There is only one revelation, and it is the revealing of God. If you are not sanctified, …or in other words made Holy through the refiner’s fire, …the sudden unveiling of God will be an everlasting lake of fire and brimstone. It will be a burning rather than a blessing. God, in His mercy, unveils Himself incrementally, to those who seek Him diligently, …so that for them it will be a blessing rather than a burning. Gradual unveiling doesn’t only come with positive affirmations. Although revelation is sweet, it also dispels false traditions of unbelief, that initially hurts. Digging, dunging, and pruning is great for the tree, …but it doesn’t feel great until the sweet fruit arrives. Gradual unveiling allows us to remove impurities slowly, line upon line, and precept upon precept, before the great and dreadful day of the Lord. Often times, before the sweet fruit of clarity arrives, we must wade through the confusion of false traditions of unbelief. Revelation offers greater value when you are able to recognize both Clarity and Confusion.

D&C 8:1-4

“1. Oliver Cowdery [you can insert your name here], verily, verily, I say unto you, that assuredly as the Lord liveth, who is your God and your Redeemer, even so surely shall you receive a knowledge of whatsoever things you shall ask in faith, with an honest heart, believing that you shall receive a knowledge concerning the engravings of old records, which are ancient, which contain those parts of my scripture of which has been spoken by the manifestation of my Spirit.

2. Yea, behold, I will tell you in your mind and in your heart, by the Holy Ghost, which shall come upon you and which shall dwell in your heart.

3. Now, behold, this is the spirit of revelation; behold, this is the spirit by which Moses brought the children of Israel through the Red Sea on dry ground.

4. Therefore this is thy gift; apply unto it, and blessed art thou, for it shall deliver you out of the hands of your enemies, when, if it were not so, they would slay you and bring your soul to destruction.”

Deliverance and protection from the enemy depends on you receiving the gift of revelation, through the exercising of “CORRECT” faith, acquired through scripture study. The Lord never promised that revelation would only come in positive affirmations. He only said that it would come to your heart and mind. If false traditions of unbelief (INCORRECT knowledge or UNBELIEF) occupy your heart and mind, there will be no room for you to receive revelation, without first casting them out.

Scripture study requires asking in faith, with an “honest” heart. An honest heart requires that you break free of false traditions when they are revealed to you. Preserving false traditions when they are revealed to you is the same as rejecting revelation, leaving you to be destroyed by your enemy, without the protection offered by God. Even in the confusion, God is making Himself available, providing room for those who want to change, …giving them a chance to change.

Conversation with an Atheist: My friend is an atheist. He doesn’t believe in God. He constantly tells me, “I will not talk about God. I don’t believe in that.” Last Saturday, I expressed to him that currently, the world is on edge as problems become compounded, and the enemies are amassing. He told me, “We have gotten through war, financial crisis, and natural disasters before. We’ll get through this too.” I agreed with him that we’ve been through them before, and added, “But, …we haven’t had them occur all at once, compounding war, financial crisis, AND major natural disasters into one!” Realizing I was right, he said sarcastically, “So then what do we do?” I repeated his own words, “I will not talk to you about God. You don’t believe in that.”  He has taken away the option of revelation, such that when his false traditions have failed to preserve him in the destruction, it’s too late to enter the ark.

Although confusion has great value when teaching correct principles of God, Clarity offers the greatest potential for progression when your hearts are softened to the words of Christ. Like the time of Noah’s ark, the covenant of protection requires seeking diligently the words of Christ, exercising faith, and aligning your actions to match the knowledge of the mind and will of God, given as He reveals Himself to you. Just because there is chaos and confusion, God’s revelation will not come any differently than it has before. He still speaks through the heart and mind. Those who wait until it is too late, their hearts and minds will be preoccupied with the basic needs of survival and desperation, for them to receive and comprehend protective and preserving revelation. Isaiah prophesied that it would be better to drink from the gentle waters, rather than quenching your thirst as you are drowning in a flood.

Now is the time to search the words of Christ diligently, expecting to receive revelation in both Confusion and Clarity. Recognize the Confusion of false traditions, so that you can cut them out of you like a cancerous tumor, putting them aside, recognizing them as false traditions of unbelief. Seek greater Clarity as you write the words of Christ upon your hearts, and begin to see clearly what you must do preparatory to the compounding disasters prophesied by the ancient fathers, and already at our doorsteps.

Conclusion:  I am beginning to see a pattern. I talk about light, Mom defends the church. I talk about faith, Mom defends the church. I talk about truth, Mom defends the church. I talk about revelation, Mom defends the church. I talk about angles, Mom defends the church. I talk about seeing the face of the Lord while in the flesh, and Mom defends the church. The subject matter is not the church. It’s the words of Christ. Light, faith, truth, revelation, angels, coming into the presence of the Lord in the flesh, are written in the words of Christ, but false traditions have changed their definition to justify sin. The words of Christ have taken a back seat to these false traditions, and they fight against the words of Christ. Would you defend the church, when the words of Christ has condemned it because of it’s vanity, unbelief, and treating the scriptures lightly?

D&C 84:

“54. And your minds in times past have been darkened because of unbelief, and because you have treated lightly the things you have received

55. Which vanity and unbelief have brought the whole church under condemnation.

56. And this condemnation resteth upon the children of Zion, even all.

57. And they shall remain under this condemnation until they repent and remember the new covenant, even the Book of Mormon and the former commandments which I have given them, not only to say, but to do according to that which I have written—”

Why do you reject the truths of your son and brother, to defend the church that the Lord has condemned, which condemnation was not removed, but was re-emphasized by President Ezra Taft Benson in 1986? You defend the same church that was upheld by the unrepentant gentiles, that have not only strayed from, and changed the ordinances (…last of which was done in 1990- removing penalties from the temple endowment), …but that have also been cut-off in the most recent cutting-off of the eclipse (…as a penalty). To get personal, you are defending a church that has cut-off your son and brother, for knowing the words of Christ, and doing as he knows, without hypocrisy or guile. Will a mother forget?

This blog was never about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, despite Mom’s accusations. This blog is about YOU! The church is only included in context, when we talk about truths of the restoration, or the false traditions of unbelief that have caused YOU to not be redeemed from the fall. YOU are the audience, not the church. YOU are the one’s that I see value in, not the institution. Have an honest heart, and allow the traditions of the church to remain in question, so that YOU can escape the hand of the enemy, who seeks the destruction of your soul. With an honest heart, you can receive  more revelation, both in Confusion and Clarity. But, with a dishonest heart, you have reduced your revelation potential to positive affirmations alone, rejecting the Lord’s correction and reproof. Do not reject revelation.

Love you much!
