In the dedicatory prayer of the Kirtland Temple, Joseph Smith instructs that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Identified With the Gentiles. At the end of Christ’s mortal ministry the day of the Gentile began, and the gospel (the good news) went forth to the Gentiles, through the preaching of the words of Christ. However, the prophecy pertaining to our day is the end of the day of the Gentiles. The pattern is available if you have eyes and ears that see and hear.
Joseph Smith clearly identifies the church, in the Kirtland Temple dedicatory prayer, as Identified With the Gentiles:
“60. Now these words, O Lord, we have spoken before thee, concerning the revelations and commandments which thou hast given unto us, who are Identified With the Gentiles.”
The tradition in the church is that when you are baptized, they claim that you are now ADOPTED into the House of Israel, and that would be correct. However, the baptism and the ADOPTION requirements included the responsibility to live by the scriptures that they collectively sustained, and the Lord approved. As an adopted Gentile, you were to live the law within the scriptures, just as all who are of the blood of the House of Israel were required to do, or suffer the penalty for failing to live it. From the time of Moses rescuing the House of Israel from Egypt, until the time of Christ’s mortal ministry, the House of Israel dropped the ball, and fell into apostasy. They rejected the wedding invitation to be sealed to Christ, and Christ extended that invitation to include those in the streets, to include all who would receive it. This was when the day of the Gentiles began.
Christ’s mortal ministry ended with the instructions for the words of Christ to be taught to the Gentiles for the first time; introducing the beginning of the day of the Gentile. Because the House of Israel corrupted the scriptures by adding to them, and taking things out, and establishing manipulative controls over the people, to oppress and enslave one another for gain, they were prophesied to be scattered; not to be gathered until the end. As the House of Israel fell out of the Lord’s graces, the fulness went to the Gentiles.
A prophecy of the restoration of the church, in the time of Joseph Smith, was given to Nephi, and is written in the Book of Mormon, as follows:
1 Nephi 13:35-36
“35. For, behold, saith the Lamb: I will manifest myself unto thy seed, that they shall write many things which I shall minister unto them, which shall be plain and precious [Plainness is the mark of all of God’s pure work]; and after thy seed shall be destroyed, and dwindle in unbelief, and also the seed of thy brethren [Nephites and Lamanites destroyed], behold, these things shall be hid up, to come forth unto the Gentiles, by the gift and power of the Lamb. [through Joseph Smith who labeled the Mormons as Identified With the Gentiles]
36. And in them shall be written my gospel, saith the Lamb, and my rock and my salvation.”
The Book of Mormon is the Lord’s gospel and the rock of salvation, offered to us by the Lord, through the Gentiles. Once we can understand that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are Identified With the Gentiles, then we can understand the prophecies regarding our time, …and be WHEAT, …instead of being clumped with the tares.
Our day is the end of the day of the Gentiles. This is the time for the building of Zion. The church has continuously clumped the interpretation of scripture, to establish their position as final and salvific (offering salvation). If they are Identified With the Gentiles, then what of the remnant House of Israel, prophesied of by Nephi, who would be given the fulness when the Gentiles reject it?
3 Nephi 16:10-12
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.
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.
The prophesies are there for those with eyes that will see, and ears that will hear. The church has called themselves Zion for a long time now. They’ve taken to name a bank Zion’s, they’ve named a retail store after Zion (ZCMI), they’ve named a real estate holdings company after Zion (Zion securities), they’ve purchased malls and high rise apartment buildings, and they are the largest land holders in the state of Florida, after the government of Florida (rumored), and they claim it all as the effort of Zion. This is their evidence that they are Zion, which allows them to clump the scriptures to justify their position as final and salvific. But, consider for a minute, that I am right, and that the church is Identified With the Gentiles, whose day has ended, …And YOU are the remnant who will be given the fulness of the Gospel of Christ, to become Zion.
1 Nephi 13:37-39
“37. And blessed are they who shall seek to bring forth my Zion at that day, for they shall have the gift and the power of the Holy Ghost; and if they endure unto the end they shall be lifted up at the last day, and shall be saved in the everlasting kingdom of the Lamb; and whoso shall publish peace, yea, tidings of great joy, how beautiful upon the mountains shall they be.
38. And it came to pass that I beheld the remnant of the seed of my brethren, and also the book of the Lamb of God, which had proceeded forth from the mouth of the Jew, that it came forth from the Gentiles unto the remnant of the seed of my brethren.
39. And after it had come forth unto them I beheld other books, which came forth by the power of the Lamb, from the Gentiles unto them, unto the convincing of “the Gentiles” and “the remnant” of the seed of my brethren, and also “the Jews” who were scattered upon all the face of the earth, that the records of the prophets and of the twelve apostles of the Lamb are true.”
The scriptures have plainly taught it. Other books have come forth in “the testimony of St. John,” recently revealed this past Sunday, 5 Feb 2017. I have read the record in it’s entirety, and they are as plain as word can be, and I testify that they are revelation, they are of God, they are scripture. They are for the convincing of the remnant of the Lamanites, who are mixed with the dispersed Nephites. They will go forth unto the Jews. Thus fulfilling the prophecy that the first will be last, and the last will be first.
Conclusion: During the time of the placement program, Native Americans were taken from their homes, to be placed into Mormon homes. They were photographed every so often to see if the influence of the Mormons would have an effect upon making their skin fair and white, like theirs. It was a failure, as many were treated as slaves, a large amount were sexually abused, and the church faces a federal court law-suit for the program. Suddenly the tables have turned, …and today, there’s a movement towards claiming the label of remnant. Out of the blue, people are claiming distant ancestry to the Native American’s, stating that their great, great grandmother was a “Cherokee princess,” or the like. What the Gentiles have failed to do is to seek the Lord to explain how it is done.
Had the Gentiles sought to understand the Lord, they wouldn’t have made such a poor choice, leading to a Federal Court law-suit. Definitions that could have helped the Gentiles understand what the Lord truly meant are as follows: Fair means: in accordance with the laws that govern them (scripture). Delightsome means pleasing to the Lord. White is translated as light, meaning “Illumination,” not skin color. Dark is the absence of light, again, NOT skin color. Loathsome means: causing hatred, and being contentious. Idol means: avoiding work, without purpose, in vain, or pointless. And Mischief is: mocking, or being harmful, or trouble making, or stirring the fight. This kind of clarity is offered by the Holy Spirit when asked with real intent. Knowing this would have avoided the whole debacle of the Church.
Now, the Gentiles are tracing their DNA to the scattered Israel, to claim that ounces of blood is what claims their stake as remnant. It is false. If you are of the House of Israel, or the remnant, or repentant Gentile, you recognize the vibration of the words of Christ! So all you need to claim is the words of Christ, and then live by it, and be governed and judged by it. Treating the scriptures lightly brought a loss of light to the individual, and a condemnation to the whole Church, even all the children of Zion. The only quality that qualifies Israel is their ability to hear the voice of the Lord in the words of Christ, …then in a servant of Christ, …leading to their visitation of Christ in the flesh. That is what makes men House of Israel, or the covenant family of God. Nothing Else!
The early saints sustained the Book of Mormon as scripture in 1830, and by 1833 they were already under condemnation for treating it lightly, as if it had little importance, or in other words “trifling” with things that are sacred. In 1832, as some early missionaries returned from their missions, the Lord reproved them for treating the Book of Mormon lightly. As a result of that attitude, he said, their minds had been darkened. And then the Lord said, “And they shall remain under this condemnation until they repent and remember the new covenant, even the Book of Mormon” (D&C 84:55-57). That condemnation was re-iterated to the saints, from President Benson in 1985. He warned that the saints are placing their souls in jeopardy, neglecting the Book of Mormon.
However, little has changed among the unrepentant Gentiles, as they have continued to ignore the warnings, remained ignorant of it’s stand-alone teachings, and jeopardized their ADOPTION. They have continued in their condemnation, and crucified Christ anew, rejecting the fulness according to prophesy.
The failure of those Identified With the Gentiles is that they: sustained the scriptures as the word of God, the Lord approved it, but they cast it aside, considering it as naught. As the Lord is methodically allowing them to be destroyed by their own plagues, do not get caught in their downward spiral. Repent and take your instructions from the scriptures, and NOT those unrepentant Gentile leaders. They have failed to live by the scriptures they’ve sustained, thrown some of those scriptures out, twisted a few others to fit their life-style, and enforced the changes with compulsion. Don’t do that.
I sustain the new record, the testimony of St. John, as sacred scripture, and will hold myself accountable to be judged by it. I have taken the Book of Mormon, Pearl of Great Price, and the Holy Bible (as far as it is translated correctly), to govern my life, as I know that I am of the family of God. Because I have done that labor, I am certain that “the testimony of St. John” comes from the same source, God. Within it are the promises Christ has made to all who are His sheep (Repentant Gentile, Remnant, or Jew). His sheep hear and recognize His voice. Qualify as His sheep by reading His words, recognizing the words of His servants, and returning to His presence.
You are my work and my glory. Your immortality and eternal life is my work and my glory. I labor here on your behalf. Your salvation is a blessing to me and my family, as we will be united in Zion, as the rest of the world suffers the plagues of their own making. Zion is the only hope. It is not the finances or the construction of Zion that hinder it’s progress, it’s the people of Zion. Let’s hinder that work no longer.
