The alphabet is considered by scholars as the greatest invention, but take a closer look, and it was not an invention at all. Language is a Gift. Language, in it’s oldest, highest and most advanced form, is only found in sacred texts of temples!
Scholars have credited the alphabet, the way words are formed, sentence structure, paragraph design, etc. as the greatest invention to man. But it was not an invention at all. The idea of inventing a language out of nothing (ex nihilo) is the same argument supporting the idea of evolution out of nothing. If man came from apes, then where can we find apes today, turning into man? …Or did the ape family just forget how to do it? Caterpillars still change form into butterflies. Caterpillars haven’t forgotten, so why did apes forget? Don’t get me wrong, I do believe that evolution exists, but not as scientists suggest. Evolution is not bottom up, it’s top down. Laws of heaven are irrevocably decreed in heaven, before the foundations of the Earth. All life and creation is formed as a blessing from God. It’s very form is attributed to the higher law it obeys, wether rocks, water, plants, animal, or man. Evolution is centered on light, and not out of nothing (ex nihilo). Research the origins of language, and you will find that language is also top down, and not creation out of nothing.
Scientists want to see language like the morphing of a single cell blob into an intelligent human, …like THEM! However, archeologically, language seems to pop up suddenly, and remains unchanged for thousands of years. There’s no evidence of groping in the dark, using trial and error, to form any language, as if it were man-made. Scientists have clumped ancient pictures (or glyphs) with letters, sentences and paragraphs, …all into one, …when they aren’t. They falsely assume that language transformed from glyphs on prehistoric cave walls, eventually evolving into words, giving justification for Darwinism and evolutionists, and scientology, and atheism. God has been looked past, because we have created our own Urim and Thummim, …and called it GOOGLE! Who needs God when we can just GOOGLE IT!
Language is a Gift from the heavens. It suddenly appears in history, because it comes through heavenly messengers, from God, to a temple. The oldest of all ancient languages were discovered in temples. They were discovered as holy writings, describing: creation, the garden, the fall, a mortal combat for redemption from the fall, culminating in an ascent. Ordinances were written and performed as instructed, but if initiates applied what was given, they obtained a higher association, with a higher order or a higher caliber of persons. Thus, Language is a Gift.
Language was intended to redeem mankind from the fall. John the Beloved titled Christ “The Word,” because Christ would do all things commanded of him by the Father. In this way, the Father’s word was made a reality in Christ’s action. That is the power of language. As stated above, language is introduced to Earth just the same way as all light, …through ordinances. More ordinance is given as a gift just as quickly as lesser ordinances are heeded. Thus, it was the offering and receiving of words of light from heaven that changes the lives of initiates. We receive the law upon which all blessings from God are predicated through the Gift of Language accompanying ordinances. Language and ordinances start at the temple, and extent out into the world, in the lives of the initiates and their dealings with others. That’s how the language spreads forth from the temple to fill the Earth with light, …through witnesses who live their ordinances, without divulging sacred knowledge to people unwilling to first keep and obey a lesser law. The ordinances are often called in scripture terms, “mysteries.”
“9. And now Alma began to expound these things unto him, saying: It is given unto many to know the mysteries of God; nevertheless they are laid under a strict command that they shall not impart only according to the portion of his word which he [God] doth grant unto the children of men, according to the heed and diligence which they give unto him.
10. And therefore, he that will harden his heart, the same receiveth the lesser portion of the word; and he that will not harden his heart, to him is given the greater portion of the word, until it is given unto him to know the mysteries of God until he know them in full.
11. And they that will harden their hearts, to them is given the lesser portion of the word until they know nothing concerning his mysteries; and then they are taken captive by the devil, and led by his will down to destruction. Now this is what is meant by the chains of hell.”
Here, Alma writes that ignorance of God’s word leads to ignorance of God’s mysteries. Failure to understand God’s mysteries is bondage, and Alma calls it “the chains of hell.” He also reports that it is through such ignorance, Satan takes men captive. Not only is Language a Gift from the heavens, it is the only escape from the bonds of hell.
Language, in it’s oldest, highest and most advanced form, is only found in sacred texts of temples! The word hieroglyph literally translated means: sacred/holy (hiero) carvings (glyph), and is predominantly found within ancient temples. The oldest writings known to man are all found in temples. It is clear that the temple is the original source of all language. The further language strays from the temple, it’s original ordinances, it’s instruction, …the further it allows the philosophies of men to mix and mingle with scripture, …until the very language is in itself chains of hell and bondage!
Lehi read the book of life, then commanded his sons to retrieve the brass plates from Laban. Nephi read the scripture and desired to understand Lehi’s viewpoint, seeking the mysteries, and the Lord visited him. Laman and Lemuel claimed that God made no such things known to them, but they refused to study and ponder as Nephi did. Eventually, the fate and destruction of the Nephites came as Nephi’s descendants took lightly the words of Christ, such that they built stages, praised God for making them right and everyone else wrong, once a week, and then went back to work digging pits for their neighbors. In their destruction, Moroni laments as he leaves a record for Joseph Smith to later discover, for the Mormon saints not to make the same mistake. And less than three years after being established, the early saints have earned a condemnation for treating lightly the Book of Mormon, not to produce fruits. Ezra Taft Benson reiterated that condemnation in 1986, saying that the condemnation had not been removed. Things are worse today, as the temple ordinances have changed, concepts of salvation have been justified, the language is corrupted, and Isaiah becomes more and more relevant.
Language is a Gift, but it is a gift that often goes unrelieved. The words of Christ may as well be a part of the sealed portion of the Book of Mormon, as they ware so often left unread, even more so misunderstood, and of little interest for conversation. Perhaps, when we choose to allow the words of Christ instruct us, then we can be restored to original ordinances, and have a temple in which Christ can come personally, to redeem the saints. Until then, the gift is left unopened.
Conclusion: I noticed a pattern of scriptures. Those who write it are not free lancing and making things up. They were all given greater light, and wrote what they were allowed to write to try the faith of the saints. The trial of faith was intended to expose who valued the Language as a Gift. Those who valued the lesser portion of the word, were given the greater portion of the word.
3 Nephi 26:6-11
6 And now there cannot be written in this book even a hundredth part of the things which Jesus did truly teach unto the people;
7 But behold the plates of Nephi do contain the more part of the things which he taught the people.
8 And these things have I written, which are a lesser part of the things which he taught the people; and I have written them to the intent that they may be brought again unto this people, from the Gentiles, according to the words which Jesus hath spoken.
9 And when they shall have received this, which is expedient that they should have first, to try their faith, and if it shall so be that they shall believe these things [to act upon it] then shall the greater things be made manifest unto them.
10 And if it so be that they will not believe these things, then shall the greater things be withheld from them, unto their condemnation.
11 Behold, I was about to write them, all which were engraven upon the plates of Nephi, but the Lord forbadeit, saying: I will try the faith of my people.
There is a direct relationship with obtaining higher and higher order by keeping ordinances, written to instruct initiates. In order for you to become gods, you must receive God’s Language as a Gift, living by every word preceding out of His mouth, in order for you to obtain all of god’s word, until you are given all the mysteries of God in full. Reject it at your own peril and condemnation. Greater things will be withheld, allowing you to continue in your ignorance, until the great and dreadful day of the Lord. For those who have cherished God’s Language as a Gift, His return will be a great day. For all others, that day will be dreadful, making the very same day both Great & Dreadful. May it be a great day for you. Make it a great Sabbath day and lets talk about the words of Christ.
