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!

 

 

 

Arrested Sacrifice (1149 Words)

The lion couch in facsimile #1 offers valuable information of an acceptable sacrifice. Some sacrifices requires the offering of a life, but for others, an Arrested Sacrifice is provided. The test results in the same outcome, whether you die or an Arrested Sacrifice is provided, it is the weighing of the heart against truth.

Look at facsimile #1 in the Book of Abraham. The person being sacrificed is on a lion-couch. The Egyptian name for the lion is sekhmet, and she is a lioness. In Hebrew her name is Ariel, the lion of God (El). Upon the lion altar is an acceptable offering, so the lion is smiling, and wagging her tail. The person on the altar is Osiris. The bird above the head of Osiris, is Horus. Osiris is the name of Christ in the flesh. Horus is the name of Jehovah (Yahweh) or the heavenly depiction of the Lord. Horus/Osiris refers to the same person, in different states: in a body of spirit and a body tabernacled in the flesh. Facsimile #1 is a story of Christ’s sacrifice. Down below the altar are four canopic jars, representing all of creation. And below them are layers of the underworld, where the crocodile awaits all unworthy travelers. Those who pass the crocodile pass through twelve gates with sufficient knowledge to pass the angels at those gates, who stand as sentinels guarding them. It is a pattern that all acceptable sacrifices must pass through, whether or not you are offered or an Arrested Sacrifice provides a substitute.

Some sacrifices requires the offering of a life, but for others, an Arrested Sacrifice is provided. The story of Abraham offering his son Isaac is a perfect example. In the most common story, a ram in the thicket is found when Abraham is stopped by an angel, just before plunging the knife into his son. The ram is the Arrested Sacrifice. A sacrifice was required, but the ram represented Christ’s atonement as a substitute for the offered life of Isaac. However, as a token, circumcision was required, representing a symbolic blood offering, cutting the crown of the head of a king. For a woman, her virginity represented a symbolic blood offering, rather than requiring the loss of their lives. Every sacrificial offering represented the Arrested Sacrifice taking the place of the one making the offering. Just as in facsimile #1, the ultimate sacrifice is Horus/Osiris, none other than Christ. All Arrested Sacrifices symbolically represent Christ’s atoning sacrifice, so that you can repent, and He pays the price in your place.

The test results in the same outcome, whether you die or an Arrested Sacrifice is provided, it is the weighing of the heart against truth. Some sacrifices are only forged in the loss of life, like Isaiah who was rolled in a carpet and sawn in half with a  wood saw. Others like Abinidai who was burned to death by King Noah and the wicked priests required nothing less than his life. However, Isaac and Nephi’s life was spared by an Arrested Sacrifice. Isaac’s substitute was the ram in the thicket, while Nephi’s was the head of king Laban. Here is the point: It doesn’t matter to any of Christ’s servants, whether or not an Arrested Sacrifice is provided, or they lost their life bearing testimony. That is the totally up to the Lord. All of them offered “the same thing,” …they offered all things, not even sparing their lives. They put it all on the altar. All true disciples, no matter what dispensation of time you live in, must face the very same test, …your hearts must be weighed in your offering, to determine in whom you’ve trusted.

John 15:14-24

“14. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

15. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

16. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

17. These things I command you, that ye love one another.

18. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

19. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

20. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

21. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.

22. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.

23. He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

24. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.”

Conclusion: All are judged by one person. It is the same person who has performed your atonement. You guessed it, the judge is Christ alone! He is the only one qualified to judge the matter, as He is the only one who paid the full price.

However, what you will be judged on is your choices. In ignorance, judgement is very lenient. Verse 22 says that if Christ didn’t speak to them, the ignorant wouldn’t be guilty of sin. Ignorance in this case means those who haven’t heard Christ’s words from Him or His servants. Verse 20 clarifies that if they reject Christ’s servant, it is the same as rejecting Christ, and rejecting the Father. For if people accept Christ’s servant’s teachings, they would accept Christ’s teachings. But, if they persecute Christ’s servants, they would persecute Christ too. Those that persecute Christ hate both Him and His father.

You are accountable to recognize the voice of the Lord, whether by His own voice, or by His servants, it is the same. Question is, can you recognize the voice of the Lord in the words of His servant? You can answer that question to yourself, because only you will be accountable to recognize Christ’s word. Familiarity with the words of Christ offers an enormous advantage. Feast upon those words. Take these things seriously. It’s time to awake and arise.

Since the solar eclipse, Texas has flooded, and Tennessee looks like it’s flooding too. Now is the time to “know ye the Lord.” He desires to make you His, by teaching true principles, to know Him personally.

Wake up already!

 

 

Gentiles and Remnant (1006 Words)

There are signs promised to identify both Gentiles and Remnant. Once both parties can be properly identified, those who are able to do so can correctly understand the prophesied sign of our day. Know who you are, and be that, rather than following a man.

Who’s Who: Gentiles and Remnant are specifically prophesied of in 3 Nephi 21. In the creation, lights in the firmament were given for times and for seasons, and for signs and for wonders. As the eclipse has just cut across America, it represents the cutting off of light across America. Those who have eyes and ears to see and hear can make the connection that the lights in the firmament have issued a sign, indicating a time. But, what time? Now, more than ever in our lives, the ability to identify who’s who matters, …if we are to recognize and understand the signs and the times. To identify who’s who, I’ll quote three scriptures:

3 Nephi 21:1

“1. And verily I say unto you, I give unto you a sign, that ye may know the time when these things shall be about to take place—that I shall gather in, from their long dispersion, my people, O house of Israel, and shall establish again among them my Zion;”

Here the Lord has prepared for our day a sign, so that we might know the time, of the gathering of what the Lord called, “MY PEOPLE.” Those who are gathered, are those who were scattered, who are “O house of Israel.” The next verse identifies another sign for us to correctly see who the Gentiles are:

2. And behold, this is the thing which I will give unto you for a sign—for verily I say unto you that when these things which I declare unto you, and which I shall declare unto you hereafter of myself, and by the power of the Holy Ghost which shall be given unto you of the Father, shall be made known unto the Gentiles that they may know concerning this people who are a remnant of the house of Jacob, and concerning this my people who shall be scattered by them;”

This is Christ prophesying of the BOM being “…made known unto the Gentiles.” Thus, the Gentiles are those who originated the BOM in our day, and that is the MORMONS (Gentiles = Mormons). Also, it identifies who the Remnant are. They are the ones scattered by the Gentiles, and they are called by Christ, “my people.” To put it simply, through the LDS church the Lord has restored the BOM as prophesied, thus identifying them as Gentiles:

5. Therefore, when these works and the works which shall be wrought among you hereafter shall come forth from the Gentiles, unto your seed which shall dwindle in unbelief because of iniquity;”

The Gentiles referred to here are clearly the LDS Mormons and their descendants, including the Europeans who are the founders of America, and their descendants. Joseph Smith, in the dedication of Kirtland, re-stated emphatically that the LDS are associated with the Gentiles (D&C 109:60). “Your seed” identifies the seed of the children of Lehi, to whom the BOM was written about and to whom it addresses.

Once Identified: Once both parties can be properly identified, those who are able see it can correctly understand the prophesied sign of our day. Correct understanding provides an option for the Gentiles (or the LDS) to repent and be numbered among the Remnant, and for the Remnant to recognize who they are, awake, and arise:

6. For thus it behooveth the Father that it should come forth from the Gentiles, that he may show forth his power unto the Gentiles, for this cause that the Gentiles, if they will not harden their hearts, that they may repent and come unto me and be baptized in my name and know of the true points of my doctrine, that they may be numbered among my people, O house of Israel;”

Gentiles are promised that if they don’t harden their hearts, they’ll self-identify by: repenting, being baptized, knowing the true points of Christ’s doctrine, and becoming “MY PEOPLE,” …or in other words: O house of Israel.  Knowing the true points of Christ’s doctrine is the foundation to exercising great and unshaken faith in Him. Without it, they are limited to their unbelief, or their incorrect belief.

If the Remnant recognize who they are, awake, and arise, …they too will see magnificent promises offered to them:

7. And when these things come to pass that thy seed shall begin to know these things—it shall be a sign unto them, that they may know that the work of the Father hath already commenced unto the fulfilling of the covenant which he hath made unto the people who are of the house of Israel.”

This is an amazing prophesy to those who the Lord calls “MY PEOPLE,” referred to here as “thy seed.” Christ is speaking to Lehi’s descendants at Bountiful. Their seed is what Christ refers to as “MY PEOPLE.” The sign promised them is that when they wake up and “…begin to know these things,” to actually study them, to feast upon them, to hunger and thirst after them, …then “…the work of the Father hath already commenced to the fulfilling of the covenant…” the very covenant that gathers US.

Conclusion: Know who you are, and be that, rather than following a man. Know your role! To thine own self be true (William Shakespeare whaaaaat!). You are the people of the land, the scattered, the ones being gathered, the seed, the Lords people, …literally KANAKA MAOLI (translated: true people). Recognize your identity as the Remnant prophesied in the scriptures, you are so ignorant of. Awake and arise from the dust. When you finally take the scriptures seriously, that will be a sign to you that the Father’s work has already commenced, that the fulness has been restored, both the covenant of the Earth and of the Heaven. Then will you be gathered, and Zion will exist, …even in Hau’ula!

Awake, Arise, Ascend, …IMUA!

 

Certified Mormon! (1323 Words)

In the efforts to write a document that states governing principles, I have discovered what I think ought to be the minimum (…and only) requirements to be considered a Certified Mormon! The eclipse cutting through the United States of America, on Thomas S. Monson’s 90th birthday (tomorrow, Aug 21, 2017) symbolizes to me a sign in the heavens that represents the end of the day of the Gentiles. It is an indication of judgement as the moon cuts off the light of the sun. Although the movement I am involved in have theoretically drastically differing opinions, The Standard & Guide (outlined here) is what I will hold myself accountable to, before God, angels, and you witnesses. It is also a statement of unity for those who will minimally observe and keep them, with the potential to produce Zion: one heart, one mind, and no poor among them.

Explained: There are two portions: standard and guide. The standard alone is sufficient to produce a seed of unity. The guide gives a little more information of how things can be done, in this dispensation, to produce one heart and one mind, with no poor among us, …allowing all to be free of being ruled-over, being able to govern ourselves, willing to be held accountable for our own flaw and error if we fail to come to Christ. Read and consider the following:


A STANDARD & GUIDE

STANDARD: We believe that every individual seeking to know God, through His son Jesus Christ, can be personally instructed by the Holy Spirit, to obtain greater light and truth. We believe that the words of Christ (past, present, and future) is the standard by which all followers of Christ should govern themselves. We relinquish any desire to have an institution, hierarchy, or strong-man lead us, being willing to be personally accountable to repent and turn to Christ, or answer for our own sins.

GUIDE: The following is a guide for the application of The Doctrine of Christ, Fellowships and Ordinances.

THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST:

Faith is having an assurance of unseen things. To exercise faith is to act in alignment to correct belief. Faith is the principle motivation of action and power in both mortals and in God. Having faith in Jesus Christ is: to believe in Him, to learn of Him, and to act according to a correct understanding of Him. Exercising faith in Jesus Christ will gradually turn action into power, producing unwavering faith in Him.

Repentance requires correct knowledge of Jesus Christ. With correct knowledge, an individual is able to recognize and turn away from personal error, facing Christ instead. Light dispels darkness and sin is quickly forgiven. Ultimately, repentance leads to being redeemed from the fall, being brought back into Christ’s presence.

Baptism is required of all who believe in Jesus Christ and repent. Baptism must be performed by immersion, by one holding proper authority, and when possible, in living water such as a river, lake, stream, or sea. Our Lord gave the following instructions:

Behold, ye shall go down and stand in the water, and in my name shall ye baptize them. And now behold, these are the words which ye shall say, calling them by name, saying: “Having authority given me of Jesus Christ, I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.” And then shall ye immerse them in the water, and come forth again out of the water.

The Holy Ghost is the promised gift of the Father to those who have faith in His Son, repent and receive baptism. The Holy Ghost is a connection to God and will give you access to more light and truth through your heart and mind.

FELLOWSHIPS:

Believers are encouraged to freely gather together in fellowships to worship, partake of the Lord’s supper, and serve and strengthen one another. All are equal before God and everyone has value because of their unique gifts and abilities. Fellowships provide an environment for light and truth to be shared and experienced.

Tithes can be freely gathered individually or within each fellowship for the purpose of helping the poor among them. No one is to be paid for their participation in a fellowship. After the needs of the poor in the fellowship are met, excess funds can be donated to help with the temple.

ORDINANCES:

Gospel ordinances, including baptism and the Lord’s Supper, require priesthood authority in the man performing them. To receive and exercise authority within his family, a man must be ordained by another man who has authority, and ask for and receive power directly from God. If the man wishes to provide priesthood ordinances outside his own family, he must also be approved (sustained) by at least seven women in a fellowship. If he is married, his wife must be one of the seven women who approve. The women should sign a certificate proving the man’s sustained authorization to provide ordinances in fellowships.

The sacrament of the Lord’s Supper consists of bread and wine and is offered to all who have been baptized. The bread should be broken into pieces by the man who is officiating, then all should kneel while the man says the following prayer, exactly as written:

O God, the Eternal Father, we ask thee in the name of thy Son, Jesus Christ, to bless and sanctify this bread to the souls of all those who partake of it; that they may eat in remembrance of the body of thy Son, and witness unto thee, O God, the Eternal Father, that they are willing to take upon them the name of thy Son, and always remember him, and keep his commandments which he hath given them, that they may always have his Spirit to be with them. Amen.

The blessing on the wine, also given by the man who is officiating while all kneel, should then be given exactly as follows:

O God, the Eternal Father, we ask thee, in the name of thy Son, Jesus Christ, to bless and sanctify this wine to the souls of all those who drink of it, that they may do it in remembrance of the blood of thy Son, which was shed for them; that they may witness unto thee, O God, the Eternal Father, that they do always remember him, that they may have his Spirit to be with them. Amen.

The officiator and all who are participating should then eat the bread and drink the wine.

Marriage is between one man and one woman only, to reflect the image of God. Marriage is a required sacrament for the exaltation of both the man and woman. Marriages that are sealed by the Lord’s oath in a sacred place, will endure beyond death and into the Father’s Kingdom.

Those who are married according to their local laws, traditions or customs, should seek to have their marriage sealed by the Lord’s word. To prepare for this event, women and men should seek to emulate the Savior’s teachings in their marriage and their treatment of each other.


Conclusion: What I have written above is a fundamentally simple statement, upon which all who claim to be followers of Christ (anciently called followers of “The Way”) can come to mutual agreement and find unity, without constricting individual worth and expression through over regulation. As all truth is circumscribed into one great whole, this statement reflects the importance of accumulating all truth, to allow the truth to shape us, rather than reshaping the truth to fit our limitations, foolish understandings, and our desire to control one another. By this standard, salvation requires nothing less than all truth, including the mysteries of God, in full. This statement is my declaration of how I choose to live my life, and by what standard I expect to be judged. Any who can live this way, I believe, ought to be considered in every way a Certified Mormon! 

Anchoring Words! (783 Words)

Words shift meaning. Using a static dictionary to read scripture can become very confusing. The words of the fathers act as an Anchor to the children.

Words, when they are not Anchored, shift meaning. The same word can mean significantly different things, depending on when, where, how, and to whom it was said. The world takes advantage of this fact, making good evil and evil good, as they control the lexicon of words. Propaganda uses newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and the internet to push false definitions, controlling words. “No Child Left Behind” has more to do with government regulatory control than it has to do with children being left behind. “Health Care” has more to do with tax revenues than it has to do with caring about a persons health. Words that aren’t Anchored, shift with the wind.

Context refers to the circumstances that words are used. A dictionary is general & limited, and it’s definitions doesn’t fit all contexts, especially scriptural. Even when words and their meanings are published in a dictionary, …it doesn’t take into account how the word is being used in scripture. Thus, all who read scripture must ponder, for context. When you understand the word and it’s intended context, only then can you unlock the definition of the words the prophet carefully selects.

The Church uses their power to govern how scriptures ought to be understood. They use a propaganda approach of magazines, videos, manuals, and websites, to shift the meaning of words, to fit their agenda. Individuals no longer need the mind and will of God, because “a man of office” handles that stuff. He will tell us what we need to know. The language is confounded in The Church, indicating a state of apostasy. Context is what prophets of old depended on to Anchor Words! In The Church today, context will get you cast-out!

The words of the fathers act as an Anchor to the children. Knowing context is how children’s hearts are turned to the fathers. Every dispensation began upon the exact same “principles.” How principles were applied depended upon their “circumstances.” While circumstances change, the principles have never changed! All who would be “ONE” must unite upon the same principles as those belonging to the Father’s. Circumstances will almost always differ, but principles are always the same. If our scripture study is Anchored in the context of the prophets, the words will be written in our hearts, and then we can be one.

Conclusion: People play “word games,” shifting circumstances to fit their agenda. When Words are Anchored, suddenly “word games” are over, and the truth is triumphant. I have been accused of playing “word games,” but my accusers refuse to discuss the scriptures, …which is where my words are Anchored! They accuse me of changing circumstances to fit my agenda, when in reality their refusal to go to the scriptures tells on them, because going to the scriptures threatens their agenda. I have no agenda, but to do the will of God.

If you don’t want to see, you’ll close your eyes. If you don’t want to hear, you’ll close your ears, and will not consider. Your actions condemn you, but I am accused as being the condemner, when I have no control over how YOU respond. I offer no condemnation. I offer further light and truth, as my Words are Anchored in scripture.

Lehi ascended into heaven, and was Anchored in the Book of Life (1 Nephi 1:11). It was unlawful for Lehi to teach its contents, so he sent Nephi to retrieve the records from Laban. Nephi used the record of Laban as a Liahona, leading him beyond the veil, into a far better land of promise, while his brothers didn’t. We are promised we can do the same (Alma 37:45). Lehi wouldn’t write about it, and Nephi uses Isaiah to try expressing it’s higher knowledge. Moroni had the Book of Life, but left the lesser record, to try our faith, …and promised the greater record if we proved true and faithful to the lesser (3 Nephi 26:9-11). John the Beloved spoke of two records (Revelations 20:12), the Book of Works (Earth), and the Book of Life (Heaven). A prophet who writes scripture is first Anchored in the Book of Life. The lesser record points to the greater record. Reject the lesser, and you are unqualified for the greater. Take hold of the lesser, and your name is promised to be written in the Book of Life. 

Your refusal to use scripture as your Anchoring Words not only disqualifies you from becoming ONE, it also disqualifies you from obtaining the greater, which is described as the fulness, or the mysteries of God in full (Alma 12:10). 

CHOICES! WORD!

 

The Covenant Lexicon (1389 Words)

A Lexicon is a vocabulary of a person, and it houses their concepts of knowledge. As people’s “…hearts become set so much upon the things of this world and aspire to the honors of men,” …the Lexicon drifts, and pure knowledge is reduced to philosophies of men, mingled with scripture. The loss or rejection of pure knowledge, indicates being ripened for destruction. We are currently ripened for destruction, …but that can change with a return to The Covenant Lexicon.

The words that we hear, read, think, and speak make up our personal Lexicon. Nephi advises us to talk of Christ, preach of Christ, and prophesy of Christ, to emphasize this idea. The Lexicon controls the “knowledge and culture” of a people. People in different areas use different Lexicons, reflecting their knowledge and culture. In Hawaii “Da-Kine” can mean hundreds of different things. On my mission in California, they used different words, spoke with different emphasis and voice pitches. In Utah, they speak “Mormon-ese,” …and they say things like “warsh” instead of wash, …and “Mou’ens” instead of mountains. To add to all the confusion, our digital world has created it’s own vocabulary of acronyms (LOL, BTW, etc.). Emojis have also introduced another Lexicon that accompanies the already massive library of terms, requiring all to read in pictures. The words people listen to, read, think, and speak governs their knowledge and culture. To put it simply, the rule of thumb is:

“He who controls the Lexicon, controls the knowledge and culture of the people!”

The scriptures were intended to be a Covenant Lexicon that preserves the language of the Patriarchal Fathers, to provide “Great Knowledge” and a “Zion Culture,” where men and gods co-mingle. However, as people’s “…hearts become set so much upon the things of this world and aspire to the honors of men,” …the Lexicon drifts, and pure knowledge is reduced to philosophies of men, mingled with scripture. More laws are added, until the added laws displace the original laws, and the Covenant Lexicon is misinterpreted, confounded, and unable to produce wisdom. Consider some examples.

The brother of Jared prayed, at the time of the tower of Babel, for the preservation of their language. He did so at a time when language was being eroded, and knowledge was being lost. God preserved their language. Although it doesn’t state it directly, I believe it was preserved with scripture, through a Covenant Lexicon, as was done in all dispensations. However, when in the promised land, the people drifted from the Covenant Lexicon. The Jaredites displaced the language of the Covenant Lexicon with secret combinations, and were swept-off the earth. A similar pattern can be seen with Nephi and the record he brought from Jerusalem.

The constitution was a form of a Covenant Lexicon, when it originated. The founders of America were influenced by the Bible, and their writings reflected the Abrahamic covenant. Today, not only does the constitution hang by a very thin thread, the laws that men have written to displace the constitution has totally drowned, distorted, and deformed the original, …making it into an abomination. The new laws that explain the constitution have become the new constitution, or in other words a drifting Lexicon, without a covenant. Our current governing laws shift with every wind of doctrine, promoted by the masses, independent from the damage it will produce our future posterity.

The founding of the LDS church began with a Covenant Lexicon, just the same. It’s founder, much like America’s founders, searched the Bible. He returned into the presence of Christ, the author of the Covenant Lexicon. At the outset, the early saints were offered to be unmoved and blessed with the presence of Christ on the condition that they would adhere to the Covenant Lexicon. But, they suffered condemnation for treating lightly the covenant. Today, the LDS church has chosen to displace the Covenant Lexicon with their committee manuals and handbooks. While the Covenant Lexicon occupies four books, there are libraries full of General Conference reports, Ensign articles, church manuals and handbooks that make up a replacement drifting Lexicon. They place emphasis on studying the words of Christ by mouth alone, drawing near with their lips. But, when the words of Christ conflict with their drifted Lexicon of Conference Reports, Ensigns, manuals, and handbooks, …they abandon the words of Christ and trust in their drifting Lexicon instead. Both America and the LDS church will suffer the same fate as the Jaredites and the Nephites if they fail to repent and return to the Covenant Lexicon.

The loss or rejection of pure knowledge, indicates being ripened for destruction. We are currently ripened for destruction, …but that can change with a return to the Covenant Lexicon. The proposed scripture project approaching quickly, on September 2-3, 2017, is an effort to repent of the lost and lightly treated Covenant Lexicon. In this project, the Old Testament and New Testament will contain ALL of the Joseph Smith translation as its PRIMARY TEXT. The LDS OT/NT has only scraps of the Joseph Smith translation, and they are only provided in the footnotes, and partially in the back of the Bible. The Doctrine and Covenants portion of the project has produced much difficulty, trying to research who said what, to authenticate the truth of what was said by God to the saints. The process of identifying D&C sources has revealed the secret combinations of the LDS church, to justify their lyings, adultery, murder, and deceptions, since the death of Joseph and Hyram Smith. Fixing their interwoven lies have proven to be a difficult task for those of us who have inherited that record, but want to restore the original offered Covenant Lexicon. By repenting and restoring the Covenant Lexicon we fully expect that along with the language, the pure knowledge will be restored, …and the hearts of the children will have turned to the promises made to the Fathers, …and the hearts of the children can turn to the Fathers, …so that the hearts of the Fathers can turn to the children. Otherwise, as we are instructed, the whole earth will be utterly waisted at His coming. We believe that God is bound by His word, and those who seek to return to His word will bind the Lord to them, and seal themselves to eternity.

Conclusion: Propaganda is another term for controlling the Lexicon. When you have control of the language of a people, you control the culture/traditions of that people. When you control the culture/traditions of a people, you control their perception of history, …because the victors always write the history. The victors of today change the history to justify their position, and to promote their future agendas. The catholic church confiscated the lexicon, and replaced the culture, with bitter fruits of institutionalism. They used their power to change history at the general conference of Nicea. And they have faired sumptuously off of the contributions of the widow’s mite, while killing the Martin Luther’s and William Tindale’s, for trying to restore the Covenant Lexicon to it’s original intent.

The LDS church has followed this pattern by using their handbooks to resolve doctrinal questions, instead of doctrine to resolve handbook questions. They’ve sought deep to hide their sins, replacing the tragic history of lies, adultery, murders, and deception, …with feel good stories of surviving the calamities of God’s condemnation upon them (Nauvoo). Rather than repenting of their past mistakes, they’ve re-written the history, to provide them a very bright future of corporate success ahead. Those of us who, like Martin Luther and William Tindale, try to restore the Covenant Lexicon to it’s original intent are being cast-out, excommunicated, and rejected for doing so. Propaganda is the tool of choice for those exercising control and unrighteous dominion.

When we preserve agency, it’s the truth that matters most, and that is what must be circumscribed into one great whole. Truth will provide the weak to overpower the high and mighty. It will produce equality and squash greed. How you choose to spend your time, accumulating and trusting in truth or maintaining the lies, will determine your reality. But, in the end, the earth will be burned, and those who have trusted the truth will remain, while all others will be swept off the land. Return to and receive the Covenant Lexicon. Check yourself, before you wreck yourself!
