The Two Lords and the LORD

We learn amazing things about the Old Testament through our fortunate use of the Book of Mormon.

3rd Nephi 23:

3 And all the things that he [Isaiah] spake have been and shall be, even according to the words which he spake.

The words of Isaiah HAVE BEEN and SHALL BE.

In other words: the Old Testament—and Isaiah in particular—contain dual prophecies.

By the time Christ was establishing Zion among the Nephites, Isaiah’s words had all been fulfilled. But they would need to be re-fulfilled.

Christ was the suffering servant of Isaiah 53; he was also the Davidic king. He fulfilled all the prophecies.

However, due to the Book of Mormon, we understand that these prophecies need to be re-fullfilled.

It might be controversial, but by taking God’s word seriously, you must admit that Christ did not fulfill the prophecies to a T.

This does not diminish his role as Redeemer, Creator, and God of the universe–

This only highlights the fact that the writings of the prophets weren’t loosey-goosey. They have a narrative that must come to pass exactly as written.

The Book of Mormon actually teaches that the suffering servant– who was bruised for our iniquities, and by his stripes we are healed…– is actually the marred servant who DECLARES the fulness of the gospel and GATHERS the elect. Therefore, Christ was only a shadow fulfillment of Isaiah 53’s suffering servant.

3rd Nephi 20

12 … I say unto you, that when they shall be fulfilled [the writings of Isaiah] then is the fulfilling of the covenant which the Father hath made unto his people, O house of Israel.

This information is GOLDEN.

It gives us so much to go off of.

Although Christians believe that the Old Testament is valuable context for the New Testament, they do not take these writings seriously. They are not awaiting and looking for their literal fulfillment; and if they are, they usually believe that these prophecies have to do with the 1948 state of Israel, which is way off the mark.

Essentially, everyone believes the prophecies only have application to other people in other ages, never to themselves.

However, I have found one smart Christian that understands America is the Israel spoken of in Isaiah… https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5p_DhcUS4PAvFE0mnBVdIw

I recommend you subscribe to his channel, learn from him and pray for him. The man has 9,900 subscribers, and judging by comments I’ve seen, a majority of them, like George Chuang [the preacher], seem to also be searching for a final prophet.

I believe he is preparing the hearts of many Christians to accept Joseph Smith…

He has studied the prophecies of the Old Testament, and understands that many of them have not been fulfilled–

Malachi in particular, and the passage on Elijah being sent before the dreadful day of the Lord…

Malachi should be studied carefully by all believers in Christ. Especially Mormons! The Book of Mormon contains Malachi 3 and 4, coming directly from the mouth of Christ in 3rd Nephi.

This is for a reason.

Jesus Christ wanted us to know that Malachi was not fulfilled during or before his ministry.

Yet John the Baptist was identified as the messenger of Malachi 3:1.

I do not hesitate to say that John the Baptist is literally Elijah and that…

Actually never mind, read this post for background: https://themarvelouswork.com/2017/03/19/will-the-real-elijah-please-stand-up/

There, I make the case that Malachi was completely fulfilled by 1836-1837.

One important thing to understand about Malachi is that it has been completely corrupted. You have to be able to understand it spiritually. Evidence for this is D&C 2 and JS-H.

The last few verses of corrected-Malachi speak of Elijah revealing priesthood… the King James does not.

But then… why does the Book of Mormon not have the corrected verses? It is a word-for-word rendition of the King James.

This is because it was God’s will that our version of Malachi was corrupted. God gives us just enough light to piece things together.

So if we have a purposefully corrupted version of Malachi, what else could be missing? I want to refer to a version of Malachi that comes directly from the Dead Sea Scrolls…

Therefore behold I send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me. And they will suddenly come to his temple, the Lord whom you seek and the messenger of the covenant whom you desire; behold he himself comes, says Yahweh of hosts, but who can endure them when they come?

Now this is where we go down the rabbit hole…

The CORRUPTED version of Malachi was fulfilled in 1836-1837, and THAT’S why we have the corrupted version in the Book of Mormon.

But what is to be made of the original Hebrew version?

I’ll break it down.

Therefore behold I send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me.

This is John the Baptist, who prepared the way before Christ. John the Baptist is obviously Elijah, who came to the earth [as John the Baptist] to reveal the Priesthood of Aaron to Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery, before the great and dreadful day of the LORD.

And they will suddenly come to his temple, the Lord whom you seek and the messenger of the covenant whom you desire;

Two people are referred to here. Notice that it says they.

The Lord is not referring to the LORD/Jehovah/Yahweh; it is referring to a kingly ruler. This is Sidney Rigdon, who is the Davidic King.

Alongside Sidney Rigdon is the messenger of the covenant, which is, of course, Joseph Smith, the Davidic Servant.

Remember how I said that Christ was the suffering servant AND the Davidic king?

That is still true.

But everything Isaiah wrote SHALL BE. That means the roles that Christ shadowed must come to fruition in totality.

behold he himself comes [to his temple], says Yahweh of hosts, but who can endure them when they come?

The Lord Jesus Christ will appear to his people at the Kirtland Temple in the third watch. But Malachi asks… who can endure the Davidic King and the High Priest when THEY come?

This is what Malachi originally wrote about.

He was writing about the two messiahs that the Jews were expecting. The servant and the king…

But the Lord made sure that these writings were contaminated.

The contaminated version was fulfilled.

But the original is yet to be…

I believe that when NEW records come forth, we will receive a corrected version of Malachi..and everything I’m trying to explain will be written in plainness and purity.

Atonement Offering

I believe that Joseph Smith offered himself as a sacrifice for the sins of the people.

I do not believe this is blasphemous.

Christians– and Mormons perhaps, too– look at the plan of salvation as a chronological piece:

  1. Men were fallen
  2. Jesus died on the cross
  3. Men are saved

This, of course, is correct chronology, but to understand the things of God you must see it from God’s perspective.

Jesus Christ’s atonement was ETERNAL. It’s been redeeming man since the beginning of time, worlds without end. The Book of Mormon teaches this truth. It records that multiple prophets were preaching the plain and precious gospel… the good news that man has been redeemed by the infinite and eternal atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ–

They were preaching this centuries before Christ. They were being sanctified BEFORE Christ died on the cross.

Chronology has nothing to do with salvation.

That’s why Joseph Smith could perform an atonement in the latter-days. He was doing exactly what the high priests did in Leviticus.

When the Mormons rejected the blood of Jesus Christ, choosing to live abominably before God, Joseph had to offer his own blood.

An atonement will always be necessary.

The Jews could have accepted the fulness of the gospel. Moses offered it to them, but they rejected it.

JST Exodus 34:

1 And the Lord said unto Moses, Hew thee two other tables of stone, like unto the first, and I will write upon them also, the words of the law, according as they were written at the first on the tables which thou brakest; but it shall not be according to the first, for I will take away the priesthood out of their midst; therefore my holy order, and the ordinances thereof, shall not go before them; for my presence shall not go up in their midst, lest I destroy them.

Here we read that Moses was originally offering “the holy order” which is the order of the sanctified. Sanctification occurs through the, “ordinances thereof,” which is baptism and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost. These ordinances would have been had in Moses’ Israel had they received the true God instead of worshipping idols.

They could have been getting sanctified all those many years before Christ came to the earth. (Just like they were in the Book of Mormon!)

But keep in mind: sanctification is only possible through the blood of Jesus.

This proves that chronology doesn’t matter.

Moses performed an atonement for Israel. He acted out the sins of the people, taking those sins upon him.

He then had to DIE as part of this atonement.

His BLOOD was necessary.

Just as it is necessary to spill the blood of goats and rams, it is necessary that his servants spill THEIR blood when that servant is offering himself as an atonement for the sins of the people he was called to minister to.

Blood will always be necessary.

If the people do not accept the blood of God– Jesus Christ– their sins must be blotted out either through the blood of goats, or the blood of an intercessory prophet.

Yet the blood of animals or men can only redeem humans to a telestial or terrestrial glory.

The celestial souls are ONLY made holy through the blood of Jesus Christ.

The ancient Jews, for instance, were terrestrial souls (at best!), saved by the blood of goats. Mormons are terrestrial souls saved by the blood of Joseph Smith.

Or even perhaps their own blood when the great calamity hits.

Exorcisms

Last night, perusing the scriptures, a story from Mark spoke volumes to my soul.

Christ and his disciples come across, “a man with an unclean spirit.” (Mark 2:4)

The text describes the man as always being in the mountains and tombs, “crying and cutting himself with stones.” (verse 5)

Self-harm has been a serious epidemic in modern-day Israel– in life and in media.

A hot show on Netflix actually glorified suicide. To me this is a sign of the times. The power of the wicked one is growing stronger.

Let’s return to Mark 2:

6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,

7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.

8 For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.

9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.

I believe Legion has returned to the earth, and that anyone who is self-harming has been possessed by this unclean spirit.

Last night I actually recognized that I, myself, was carrying the spirit of Legion. Over the last year this has brought me back into depression. As a teenager, I self-harmed and was filled with hatred for myself.

I’m sure everyone knows at least one person who struggles with these same issues.

In Mark, the possessed man received deliverance by worshiping the son of the most high God.

Last night I did the same and received peace of mind, clarity, and abundance of charity.

This morning I came across a very frightening video:

Not only is this exploiting mental illness, it is ENCOURAGING participants to allow the demons to take control.

After watching this video, I felt inspired to share the story of Mark.

Worship Christ.

It is our only deliverance from this fallen world.

May you be filled with love of our Heavenly Father, and share it with the world.

Celebrity Status

An acquaintance—yes, a facebook friend—shared a music video online that I took notice of. Normally I’m not one to listen to music like “Ke$ha” but the title of her latest song was, “Praying.” This intrigued me enough to give the song a listen.

I was blown away by it. Kesha is seeing the first lights of the gospel.

This poor woman has been to hell and back– that’s no short statement; she really has.

She sold her soul to ‘Dr. Luke’—Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald—in exchange for fame. She was forced to commit sexual acts. This is all very real and I encourage you to research it, if you have the stomach. [Editorial Note: At the same time, I’m sure the Lord would approve us NOT dwelling on the sins of her past.]

Kesha Sebert attempted to break free of the Satanic covenant she entered into. She tried to terminate her contract with music producer, “Dr. Luke,” telling the courts that he had sexually assaulted her.

The court judge—an obvious minion of Satan—did not believe Kesha, and forced her to continue her contract with the man who had assaulted her. When the contract ended, Kesha drifted into obscurity. Now, four years later, she releases this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-Dur3uXXCQ

Lyrics worth mentioning:

Oh, sometimes, I pray for you at night

Someday, maybe you’ll see the light

Oh, some say, in life, you’re gonna get what you give

But some things only God can forgive

This is the girl who had for a decade endorsed—in her music—drinking and promiscuous sex. Worst of all, Ke$ha geared these songs towards teenagers. This occurred in the prime years of Youtube stardom; every young person who used internet at the time was sure to have seen her music videos. On my mission I even heard missionaries singing her songs. This place is about to blow-ow-ow, I’d hear them in the shower.

The lyrics to her hit singles, I’m afraid, are too X-rated for a blog such as this. However, let it be known: In 2017 Kesha is now praying, and telling other people to pray.

The reason I’m writing this post is because it’s worth mentioning that all of this seems to be in pattern. Something is happening.


Recently, superstar Katy Perry has admitted that she is ashamed of her music.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMQRFT4bZuc

I believe that these celebrities are being prepared by God to receive the fulness of the gospel.

I believe the the elect of Israel are people of status and position. There is a reason God endowed them with gifts of talent, and subsequent success. They are famous for a reason.

Kesha will raise the voice of warning long before any of the LDS prophets do.

The One and Only Antidote for Loss of Faith

During my journey down the rabbit hole to discover the truth (which I now understand to be Jesus Christ) I was influenced heavily—in a good way—by two individuals.

If you’re reading this, you probably have read the works of “The One Who Is Watching”, who was my first good influence; but another is an anonymous poster who floats around, leaving comments on nearly all of the alternative Mormon blogs.

Over the years she’s gone by the username’s of “Anon23” and “Lilli” and “BK” and “DeeLynn.” Although she uses different names, it’s easy to spot her comments. There is a distinct spirit that follows her.

I’ve watched her—over these years—lose faith in the word of God.

Here’s how she understood the truth in 2013:

As the Book of Mormon prophets who saw our day foretold, everyone in the Church has been deceived by false prophets who preach & practice false doctrines & whoredoms since Joseph died. We must awake to our awful situation in the Church and realize we are in the same situation Alma found himself in in his corrupt Church.

Soon Christ & Joseph will return to earth to restore the true Church to the earth. We must live according to the holy scriptures until then and not listen to the contrary doctrine of so-called prophets today.

For Joseph warned that those who are deceived by falsehoods & false prophets will lose their exaltation & standing in the Celestial Kingdom. And he said most people fall for these false prophets, thinking them to be true ones, because they don’t test them & their doctrines to see if they are preaching contrary to Christ & the scriptures that Joseph gave us, that would be the BoM & the original D&C (1835 edition)

This is phenomenal. Her viewpoints ALMOST align with that of Watcher or I. However, she would want no association with Watcher. Here’s a comment she left on his site…

Again this is from 2013:

Watcher,

I agree that the Church is in a deep apostasy since Joseph Smith and the leaders today have no authority anymore than any other church on earth does.

You seem to understand, and have stated, that prophets can’t teach contrary revelation to what has already been given and that which is in the scriptures or contrary to Christ’s teachings, yet you don’t seem to believe that Joseph understood or lived by his own teachings of this.

Joseph taught that those who do preach or practice contrary to the scriptures are ‘imposters’, false teachers, even false prophets who should be shunned and not listened to. So if Joseph did such, taught false doctrine, then he was also a false or fallen prophet, especially if he preached or practiced such serious abominations as polygamy, which I don’t believe he did.

I believe in the pure testimony of Joseph Smith, despite all the rumors and hearsay against him, usually by evil or easily deceived people. Why do I believe him and not them? Because of his fruits and the way he lived and the Gospel he taught and the way he treated and loved Emma. If you know what true love looks like you can see if other’s have it or not. I believe he possessed true love for Emma and thus would not have ever done such vile and abusive things to her and his children or other women.

But you apparently believe he did and thus fell from his high station as Prophet. For if you think Joseph remained a true prophet after abusing Emma in some of the worse of ways and committing adultery on her repeatedly, then with such ‘true’ prophets you don’t need ‘false’ ones. For if Joseph lied and really did such things, no false prophet was worse than he was, Yet you seem to want to give him a pass and still maintain he was a true prophet, just with some faults and brush off how awful the things he supposedly did were.

If you believe true prophets can commit atrocious abuse and adultery and still remain true prophets and maintain their power and authority and expect anyone through all time to give them a second’s notice, then I don’t know what to say to that, it’s utterly appalling to me. Why would I ever listen to or put trust in a man who is so evil? How could I believe in such a God who would expect such a thing or have such men as Prophets or leaders?

You do not seem to understand how God expects men and especially true prophets to treat women, especially their wives, and the eternal consequences for them if they don’t live up to his standards.

If Joseph fell and did such vile things as you believe he did, then he was one of the worst false or fallen prophets that ever lived, just as Brigham Young was and all those leaders who followed after him were.

If you don’t believe polygamy was a true principle, then I don’t understand why you would have any trust or faith in anything Brigham Young put out after Joseph died, like D&C 110. That would be like accepting scripture from Warren Jeffs and him saying it was from Joseph. Do you not realize that BY could and would have easily doctored that journal and made up that story about the angels to further his own agenda, to look like he had keys?

D&C 110 may or may not be true, but from what I see it appears to come from such a shaky foundation that we would be foolish to put any stock in it, let alone build our beliefs around it. We can’t automatically trust anything that BY put out after Joseph died. Yes, BY did teach true things, but they were so mixed in with falsehoods that it is impossible to discern his truth from error unless one has the Holy Spirit as their guide and Charity.

I would sooner believe that Oliver C. was in error than Joseph. For I believe Joseph proved to have true love for Emma, (which is a vital requirement of a true prophet) despite what all the story books say and the mounds of hearsay against him, which should totally be expected if he was a true prophet, for all hell would break loose trying to discredit him and make him look bad.

You appear to believe Joseph was one of the worst of men, an extremely abusive adulterous liar who was completely past feeling. Such men do not repent in this life, except by a miracle.

Do you realize that one day you will have to stand before Joseph and explain to him why you refused to believe him and his humble testimony, and instead chose to believe the vilest of hearsay against him, usually from those who did the vilest of evils, which he gave his life fighting against?

If Joseph really fell for such whoredoms, I believe he is standing in Spirit Prison now and would consider anyone foolish to trust anything he ever published or taught.

God especially would not expect or want anyone to listen to anyone who would do such things. Prophets have to prove their are of such high standing and near perfect and have true Christlike Charity, especially for their wife or they can’t expect anyone to listen to them.

Yes, Joseph was not perfect, but he was close. Being deceived to put evil men into high callings or fall for false revelation for a short time is not near the level of the atrocity of committing whoredoms. Even true followers of Christ are deceived at times, but they soon catch themselves because they have the Spirit to warn them that something is not right and they need to look further into things or the Spirit teaches them how they were wrong. But true followers of Christ, true prophets don’t fall for whoredoms or abuse wives or women, and if they do they aren’t true prophets anymore. Many true prophets throughout history have fallen and become fallen prophets and lost their exaltation.

But I believe Joseph was too wise and to good to fall for polygamy, or even an angel who might come demanding it, he would have known instantly that it was a bad angel preaching whoredoms that were completely contrary to God’s laws. He would have not given a moment’s notice to such an angel.

Could he have fallen for polygamy anyway, because of the weakness of the flesh? Certainly, but I see no proof whatsoever that he weakened and fell, he proved himself over and over to be strong enough to give the greatest of sacrifices and wise enough to teach the greatest of doctrines, which a fallen man would not have been strong or wise enough to do.

One last thing, Christ clearly taught that it takes true unconditional love, especially for one’s spouse, to be or discern true prophets, let alone discern right from wrong, true scripture from false scripture and devils from saints.

Without such charity, we are nothing and have no power, promise or ability to discern, and we will always and easily be deceived by false prophets and false doctrines and false revelation, thinking them to be true and thinking ourselves to be right and righteous.

Before we ever seek to discern truth from error in church history or in the scriptures or in those around us, we must make sure we possess this charity, this Christlike true love, especially for our spouse. It has always been very rare to find anyone throughout the history of the world who possesses such love, even prophets usually don’t possess it as needed and that is why many of them have fallen and been so easily deceived by devils.

Are you fireproof? Do you have true love for your wife? Do you live to love and serve her every wish before you own, all day long? Perhaps you do. I certainly commend you if you do.

But if we don’t possess such everlasting unconditional love, (most LDS don’t even ‘believe’ in it anymore today), then we can’t trust ourselves to see or discern correctly yet or be able to judge true prophets from false ones. For it takes a true prophet to know a true prophet. Those who posses true charity, true love, are prophets, it’s that hard and rare to possess.

Excuse the length of that excerpt, but I truly believe the above comment is worth the read. If you read the whole thing, thank you. I want you to see the light and clarity she had.

However, she believed that Joseph Smith was innocent of polygamy.

That’s the only difference I had with her. Now… there are many differences.

Here’s a comment she wrote in 2016:

I agree that those who don’t keep Christ’s commandments are in apostasy, and thus that would include the leaders of the Church, past & present, including Joseph Smith, even if, as evidence suggests, that he was innocent of polygamy and only had 1 wife, Emma.

But we must remember that the so called ‘words of Christ’ were written down by very fallible men, many years after Christ had come and gone, and probably weren’t even written by his Apostles. And when we see that even some of Christ’s words contradict each other it even further suggests that the ‘words of Christ’ were tampered with, so as to put them all in doubt.

Lilli, the above poster, has lost all faith in the Restoration movement, and even doubts the words said by Christ in the gospels.

She used to be at an advanced understanding of Mormonism–

So what caused her loss of faith? It was because she believed Joseph Smith was innocent of polygamy. Even though she now believes the Book of Mormon to be false, she still–somewhat–clings to the belief that Joseph was innocent.

The Saints MUST find Joseph guilty. That’s the only way to understand the awful situation we’re in. Nothing will come together unless you understand the atonement offering of Joseph & others as outlined in Leviticus 16.

Watcher, Searcher, and I have gone to great lengths to explain the bizarre behavior of Joseph Smith. All three of us have had little impact as far as I am aware, yet our message is PARAMOUNT.

Without it, you will ultimately lose faith in the foundational claims of the Mormon movement.

You may be able to retain faith in Christ, but you will never understand the scriptures.

If you haven’t noticed, lately blogging hasn’t been a high priority for me. Things I discover in the scriptures I feel like keeping to myself, and I’m tired of debunking Denver. He posted something literally today that I could write an entire post on…but I won’t. I’m going to get out and enjoy the sun and experience my final years in Babylon.

Know Your Dispensations.

Today in the Christian church they have a quick-sale gospel. Accept Jesus into your heart, and you are saved. Eternal security.

Much of what Paul wrote in the New Testament can be used to infer that this is the gospel.

However, the gospel that Jesus taught had a little more juice to it.

A trend in the Christian world is to teach that there was a NEW gospel when the gospel went to the Gentiles, that the gospel to the Jews is the one that had the commandments.

Smart– but not actually smart– Christians say that Mathew to Acts 10 is the gospel to the Jews, and that Acts 10 to Hebrews is the Gentile gospel, and that Hebrews to Revelation is irrelevant to us, but pertains to the Jews when the gospel goes back to them after the “grace age”.

That is how they justify their watered down version of what Christ taught.

Christ was speaking to the Jews! That’s why he gave them commandments! Those commandments aren’t for us, the Gentiles!”

This is how they are able to justify the fact that they aren’t doing what the church in Acts 2 did.

If you are going to follow Christ, you have to live the law of consecration as recorded by the early apostles who had all things in common.

The reason Hebrews talks about priesthood/ordinances, and James talks about works, is not because those books are for the Jews! They are to be used in conjunction with what Paul taught in Corinthians to Philemon.

There is only one gospel.

Christians who recognize the contradictory nature of their beliefs have now devised a complex stance on why they stick with their fake-christian creed. Does this sound familiar? I don’t know about you, but it reminds me ALOT of Mormon apologetics.

Instead of accepting the truth of ALL of God’s word, they bend over backwards defending the false traditions of their fathers.

Here is an example of a “smart” Christian:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GR5TonSRFaI

He is just one of many that teaches this take on the Christian view of dispensations.

Christians confounded by the discrepancy between God’s word and what their pastor says are able to watch these videos and feel confident that they are on the right path, that they are part of the bride of Christ/the church.

Robert Breaker says, in a nut-shell: If you’re going to follow Jesus Christ as contained in the four gospels, you need to sell everything you have and give to the poor! That’s the gospel that was given to the Jews. You have to live in a little commune and live communism. Good for you, we live in a “grace age” in which all we need to do is have faith.

This man even went on record and said, “Salvation is only through Paul.”

His words, no joke. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEQ6cV6SROo

Many “smart” Christians believe that we are not under the ministry of Jesus Christ, but under the ministry of Paul.

Jesus’ ministry was to the Jews; Paul’s was to the Gentiles.

Therefore, thinking themselves to be Gentiles, they believe the words of Paul take precedence over what Christ said.

They do this, instead of accepting the cold, hard truth that the true apostolic church is not on the earth.

It is easy to debunk the idiocy of such theories.

In fact, all it takes is one scripture:

Mathew 28:

19 ¶ Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Jesus was making it clear that the apostles were to teach ALL NATIONS. It took Peter a little bit of time to figure it out, but their mandate to preach the gospel was not exclusive to the Jews.

Their mandate included baptism, and to observe all the things that Christ had commanded the apostles.

Christians don’t believe that baptism is necessary for salvation.

Utter nonsense.

But why the confusion?

Just as Mormons have completely misunderstood dispensations, Christians have done the same.

Instead of debunking the stupidity of Christians like Robert Breaker, I want to talk about WHY there is the confusion.

Things get confusing in the Book of Acts.

After the day of Pentecost, in which the church received the fulness of the priesthood/baptism of fire, they implemented the law of consecration. As missionaries, their message was, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” (Acts 2:38)

Acts 8 explains that receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost was contingent upon baptism and the ordinance of the laying on of hands:

15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:

16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)

17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.

I believe that after receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, the recipient can then prove themselves and go on to receive a baptism of fire, which is the fulness of the priesthood.

Receiving a baptism of fire is only through the Lord.

Yet servants with priesthood authority must administer the ordinances.

In Acts 10, something interesting happens.

The gospel has now gone to the Gentiles.

See what happens…

Acts 10:

44 ¶ While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.

45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.

46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,

47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?

48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord

The reason that the Jewish believers were so astonished, was because the Gentiles received the gift of the Holy Ghost without having been baptized and had the laying on of hands.

Christians take this to mean that the Gentile gospel is different than the gospel to the Jews. Gentiles can receive the gift of the Holy Ghost without any ordinances; therefore, the commandments given by the Lord are not for Gentiles. Gentiles are saved by grace through faith.

This is erroneous.

Understanding this marvelous event is unlocked by the parable of the prodigal son.

The Gentiles / Kingdom of Israel = prodigal son

The Jews / Kingdom of Judah = the younger son

When the prodigal son returns, his father doesn’t wait to give him his gifts and blessings. He runs to where his son is– “a great way off”– and gives him a robe, ring and shoes, before the prodigal son has even made it home/entered through the gate.

This is why I believe Christians (Gentiles) are more inspired than Mormons (Jews).

The Lord is blessing them with the gift of the Holy Ghost without even ever having the ordinances of the gospel.

If Mormons still had the ordinances of the gospel, the LDS church would be a hundred times better than any Christian church.

But the Mormon church lost their priesthood authority to give the gift of the Holy Ghost in September 1841.

Once the next dispensations opens back up again, there will be servants who will hold the Melchizedek priesthood, to establish the new and everlasting covenant.

Baptism, the laying on of hands, and the endowment of the Holy Ghost will return to the earth.

This is not contrary to Paul’s statements of saved through grace by faith.

This is the fulness of the gospel which is contained in the Book of Mormon. “By grace we are saved, after all we can do.”

And the only thing we can do is repent.

It is only through the grace of God that a servant may provide unto us the saving ordinances.

*

Now as for dispensations, let me set the story straight:

When Christ mandated his apostles to go forth and teach all nations, that dispensation was “the dispensation of the last times.” (D&C 27:13)

This dispensation was the same dispensation of the gospel that Paul was dispensing.

This dispensation lasted till the year 571.

See this post of mine for why I believe this: https://themarvelouswork.com/2016/12/25/the-mysteries-of-the-kingdom-pt-5-revelation-12/

When Peter, James, and John came to Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery, they committed unto them the keys of the kingdom, which is for the dispensation of the last times.

The keys of the kingdom are necessary for the dispensation of the last times.

Peter, James, and John did not bestow the Melchizedek priesthood, but they gave them the keys of the kingdom which ENABLED them to receive the Melchizedek priesthood, which, again, is necessary for the dispensation of the last times.

But the church lost the fulness of the priesthood; and in 1836, a new dispensation was opened up: The dispensation of the gospel of Abraham, which would last for four generations.

Those four generations are up.

The fifth generation is where the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

During this time, the dispensation of the last times will open back up, to seal up the 144,000 and establish Zion.

After this, the dispensation of the fulness of times will wrap everything else into place and the gospel will go to the Jews.

But there will be NO CHANGE to the gospel.

The gospel will always remain the same.

The only change was the dispensation of the Gospel of Abraham, which was NOT the gospel of Christ.

It was the gospel of Abraham– hence the name.

The gospel of Christ is not on the earth until the keys of the kingdom return back to the earth.

And who holds the keys of the kingdom?

Section 90:

3 Verily I say unto you, the keys of this kingdom shall never be taken from you, while thou art in the world, neither in the world to come;

This revelation was of course given to Joseph– (as well as Sidney Rigdon, and Frederick G. Williams)

Joseph needs to return to the earth with the keys of the kingdom which enable us to receive the fulness of the gospel.

Anyone claiming to have received the comforter and visions of Christ are deceived.

If I Were a Prophet pt. 4 “Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj”

Some years ago, I had a prejudice against mainstream Christianity.

I considered them all fools, and that Mormonism was a huge leap ahead of them.

Once I realized the apostasy of the LDS church, I reconsidered my prejudice and began accepting truth wherever I found it.

On my mission, someone gave me four books written by William Branham, a self-proclaimed prophet from the South who died in 1965.

I devoured those books and came to a stunning conclusion:

Branham was more inspired than any of the General Authorities.

Was Branham a true prophet?

No. In many areas he fell short. He was not a prophet. But reading his sermons taught me more about God’s word than a lifetime in the Mormon church had. Branham pointed to the scriptures and wasn’t afraid to make claims of Thus saith the Lord…

The General Authorities are afraid to take any risks.

After 9/11, Gordon B. Hinckley could say nothing but that he, “didn’t know” what the future held in store.

Just imagine if people actually started taking the Mormon church seriously… If they tuned in to General Conference, hoping to hear the words of God through an anointed prophet…

What would they hear?

Nothing of value. The “prophets” of the LDS church bring NOTHING to the table.

In part two of this series, I covered the prophecies of a man named John Johnson.

https://themarvelouswork.com/2017/01/29/if-i-were-a-prophet-pt-2-john-johnson/

Johnson had the balls to make prophecies, and they came to pass as he said they would.

I’ve come across many Christians who claim to have the spirit of prophecy. Many of these individuals, I believe, are inspired of God.

Another example of an inspired Christian is a man from India, Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj. Like Johnson, Sadhu has the balls to prophesy.

On August 10th, 2016, MONTHS before the election, Sadhu claimed to have had a vision in which he was told by a Council in Heaven that Donald Trump would be president.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHN16P0LTnY

He didn’t softball it; he proclaimed it emphatically.

There was no and’s or if’s about it–

Sadhu risked his entire ministry. If Trump was not elected, he would be forever branded a false prophet. This is a mark of sincerity. He truly believed he had a vision. If it never came to pass, he would recognize the error of his ways and humbly submit that he had been deceived.

Yet I do not believe Sadhu to be an annointed prophet.

All I believe is that he is inspired. For instance, he understands that the rapture occurs mid-tribulation. Furthermore, he teaches that the first harvest of raptured Saints will return and assist the church through the rest of the tribulation–

This stuff is light years ahead of what Mormons think and believe in regards to the last days.

In my opinion, disciples of Christ are better off believing Sadhu to be a prophet, rather than to believe that the LDS church is the kingdom of God upon the earth.

A test I’ve practiced in trying to find inspired Christians is to see whether or not they slam Joseph Smith.

William Branham said Joseph Smith was a fine man, but that he taught falsehoods about God (King Follet sermon).

A fine man???

For a Christian to look past Joseph’s 30+ wives and call him a fine man says something.

The spirit inside them somehow knows he was not a servant of Satan.

They cannot accept his false teachings, yet they never speak out against him.

Here is what William Branham had to say about Joseph Smith:

Now, they may be present, some Mormon brethren or sisters, and they may be some get these tapes now. And I don’t want to say that… Some of the finest people I–you would want to meet would be–be in the Mormon people, very fine type of people; and then their–their prophet, Joseph Smith, that the Methodist people killed here in Illinois, on their journey over… And so then that–that fine man… And the vision, I don’t doubt at all but what he had the vision. I believe he’s a sincere man, but the vision he had was contrary to the Scripture;

To me this is quite profound.

Only the Spirit can teach someone that Joseph Smith was sincere.

Secular history proves without a doubt that Joseph was a fraud.

Only someone inspired by the Spirit will defend Joseph.

Someone REALLY inspired will defend Joseph’s revelations, and renounce his controversial Nauvoo ministry.

Someone really inspired will teach that Joseph was a fallen prophet, that he stopped abiding in the Lord after receiving Section 124.

But they will not hold him accountable.

They will teach that this was according to the providence of God.

Only the elect will understand the scriptures. If Joseph Smith had a squeaky clean record, there wouldn’t be a test.

God made it easy for the world to reject Joseph Smith.

In my last post, I recanted what Christ said about his followers:

My sheep hear my voice.

Those that recognize the word of God for what it is are the sheep of Jesus Christ.

It doesn’t matter where it comes from… Or who it comes from… Christ’s sheep know the truth! The truth which defies logic and mortal understanding. The truth which cannot be proven by secular history.

Polygamy, A Horror Story

As I came to understand the things of Mormon history, it became apparent to me that I would one day put it all into writing.

I wanted my blog to be a shadow of Alma 37. The prophecy tells us that in the last days there will be a servant of God, named Gazelem, who exposes the things of darkness.

I of course do not claim to be this servant, but I’ve wanted my blog to have that same calling.

Mark 4:

22 For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.

Right now in the world we have people like Julian Assange and Edward Snowden. They are doing a fantastic job at exposing corporations for what they really are, as well as bringing to light the countless war-crimes committed in the name of American government.

They are doing what Gazelem will, only Gazelem will be revealing things on an even grander scale.

Wikileaks has just barely scratched the surface.

Recently, there is now a Mormonleaks.

https://mormonleaks.io/#about

Since its inception, I’ve been anticipating each release of whatever document ends up in their hands. There’s no telling what nuggets of truth will come from that website. The inner-workings of the LDS church is full of hypocrisy and lies.

Because of Mormonleaks, we know for certain the thing we always suspected: there IS a paid ministry. From what I’ve gathered, the apostles are raking in a six-digit salary on top of all their perks.

But the LDS church no longer interests me.

It was rejected of God by 1842. It’s a miracle that it has somehow sustained itself after everything that happened when Brigham, John, and Wilford were presidents.

Besides, we don’t need Mormonleaks to expose the things that the scriptures have already made clear.

The Gentiles rejected the fulness of the gospel, as told to us by Christ in 3rd Nephi 16.

It’s as simple as that.

However, Mormonleaks provides some interesting context, and will no doubt have an effect on blind Israel. Some will finally realize that their shepherds have been scattering them, not gathering them.

Heavy burdens have been put on the backs of the membership.

However, the need for a prophet and community has conjured Denver Snuffer into the spotlight.

The Saints are not leaving the church in favor of what the scriptures teach. They are leaving because of bullshitters like Grant Palmer, Jeremy Runnells, and, of course, Davey Snuffer.

This morning I perused Grant Palmer’s anti-Mormon book, “An Insider’s View of Mormon Origins,” and was blown away by how ridiculous it is.

I originally read it as a non-believer, and thought it was thoughtfully written.

Now I find all his contentions absolutely laughable.

He was an institute director for the LDS church for 35 years. You’d think all that studying would have opened his eyes to the truthfulness of God’s word.

In his disillusionment of the church, his faith has fallen to pieces. He claims to still believe in Christ, but he does not know Christ.

Christ says, “My sheep hear my voice.”

When the Lord speaks, his sheep hear it!

Anyone that rejects the Book of Mormon, or the revelations of Joseph Smith, are not in the fold of God.

Likewise, anyone that believes in false prophets, are not the sheep of Christ, but the sheep of the devil. (Alma 5)

I of course hope that many will recognize the error of their ways and accept the fulness of the gospel when the times of the Gentiles comes in for the last time–

Just because someone is deceived, doesn’t mean they don’t have a chance.

We all fall short in one area or another.

I am by no means righteous. I might understand the scriptures better than most, but that doesn’t make me better than anyone.

Yet righteousness is the standard in which we all need to be striving for.

I was blasted by a Snufferite who told me that I should not point out Denver Snuffer’s flaws. Prophets aren’t perfect, right?

Some are, actually.

In any case, Mosiah 23 says,

14 And also trust no one to be your teacher nor your minister, except he be a man of God, walking in his ways and keeping his commandments.

Denver Snuffer is not of God.

Those of God are not deceived; they recognize the voice of the Lord. Denver rejects Section 110, which contains Christ speaking. He has also broken the commandment of monogamy and remarried. He is not a man of God, and therefore I will not trust him as my teacher.

*

When I was beginning to have the scriptures illuminated before me by the spirit of revelation, I realized that Section 132, and polygamy in general, was entirely false.

By the spirit of revelation, I finally understood this passage of Isaiah… “In that day seven women shall take hold of one man…”

In my younger years, I used to think that was evidence for the truthfulness of polygamy. I now understand what Isaiah was actually saying:

1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.

2 In that day shall the branch of the Lord be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel.

3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy,

The beautiful branch of the Lord is not the polygamists, but those that ESCAPED Israel!

So I knew that polygamy would make a comeback, and when it did, the holy ones would escape and be in Zion/Jerusalem.

I used to think that the LDS church would bring back polygamy.

But I no longer believe this to be the case. Polygamy is going to pop its head back up, but it won’t be the LDS church.

I’ve now been saying for almost two years that Denver Snuffer will bring back polygamy; or, at very least, allow it to occur.

Mormonleaks has brought an interesting document to the table.

https://mormonleaks.io/wiki/index.php?title=File:Stake_President_Reports_Apostasy.pdf

Snufferites are engaging in spiritual wifery!!!!!!

Of course, these “sealings” are “spiritual”.

They’re just doing what they believe Joseph did!

Denver has taught repeatedly that Joseph had himself sealed to multiple women.

However, he teaches that Joseph did not engage in sexual relations.

That was Brigham Young’s style, not Joseph’s.

Because of Snufferites belief in Denver’s teachings, they believe that Joseph Smith did not commit adultery, but that multiple sealings are ordained of God.

In the Snufferite movement it will become common-place to have yourself sealed to multiple others.

It’ll be “spiritual” – but eventually there will be sexual incidences. When this happens, Denver will not speak against it. He will give the people exactly what they want.

Denver will also introduce esoteric rituals into his temple.

Not the ones Brigham introduced, he says, but the endowment that Joseph revealed! Denver will finally bring it back… uh-huh.

The Snufferites believe that Joseph Smith did not fall from his station as prophet. They think he was teaching truth when he sealed himself to multiple women, introduced endowment ceremonies, and taught the King Follet Sermon.

Because they refuse to accept the cold hard truth about Joseph, they are going to fall for the exact same crap that the Nauvoo saints fell for.

History repeats itself.

And all of it will be made known.

Alma 37:

23 And the Lord said: I will prepare unto my servant Gazelem, a stone, which shall shine forth in darkness unto light, that I may discover unto my people who serve me, that I may discover unto them the works of their brethren, yea, their secret works, their works of darkness, and their wickedness and abominations.

Those that serve Christ, will know the truth of all things.

God will discover unto us all the secret works of darkness that are being committed by our brethren.

Why I Pray For Donald Trump pt. 2

Okay, enough about Davey Snuffer.

Let’s talk about someone who will actually do something good for God’s people.

When Trump was elected, I was ecstatic. I think I really fell in love with him when he told Hilary—during one of the debates—that if he was President, she would be in jail. He also went on record saying that he would appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hilary.

That was a beautiful moment.

However, Trump was an instant let-down.

When asked about whether or not he would go through with his threats, he responded that the Clinton’s were, “good people.”

I almost crapped myself.

Good people?

WTF Donald Trump, you’re corrupt just like the rest of them!

I now realize my impressions were wrong: Donald Trump had played a very, very wise move.

Saying the Clinton’s were good people was a ploy.

People think Trump is an idiot, but only a brilliant man could rise up to his position. He’s no Saint, but he’s no fool.

He knows exactly what he’s got his ass into.

He knew that he needed the Clinton administration to think they were safe, and that his words at the debates were nothing but empty threats. What he was doing… was buying time.

Trump is aware that he is surrounded by pedophiles. Then again, it doesn’t take a genius to figure this out.

The Clinton administration KNEW that Anthony Weiner was sexually involved with a teenager…

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3890748/Clinton-s-inner-circle-knew-FIVE-YEARS-AGO-Anthony-Weiner-talking-underage-girl-did-it.html

…and the Obama administration was no different:

Take a look here at Joe Biden sexually molesting little girls…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwXweiRjckI

The video speaks for itself. Say what you will about “pizzagate”, but Joe Biden is obviously a sick SOB.

Trump, and his family, are actual human beings.

Trump’s daughter is actively involved in the work against human trafficking.

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/02/24/ivanka-trump-pushes-white-house-agenda-human-trafficking/

Believe it or not, but since Trump took the White House, things are actually getting done.

In 2014 there were only 400 arrests made on pedophiles.

https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2014/crime-in-the-u.s.-2014/additional-reports/human-trafficking-report/human-trafficking.pdf

Did you know that after only ONE month in office, from just January to February, there was 1,500 arrests!!!!???

https://townhall.com/columnists/lizcrokin/2017/02/25/why-the-msm-is-ignoring-trumps-sex-trafficking-busts-n2290379

I believe that this surge of arrests is due to having a President who is not part of the NWO.

Trump is busting pedophilia rings right, left, and center.

Of course, the media doesn’t cover this.

I believe Donald Trump is carefully putting his efforts into doing as much good as possible without pissing off the powers that be.

It’s only a matter of time until he is assassinated for the same reasons that JFK was, or he succeeds in cleansing the corrupt government.

I, of course, pray for the latter.

John F. Kennedy knew the world was being controlled by secret societies.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8HTr-F-FVM

Fifty years later, Donald J. Trump is now in the same boat as JFK.

Kennedy was not a perfect man, but he was against all odds trying to take down a corrupt system. Trump, too, may have some poor morals, but this war is bigger than adultery. Lives are at stake.

Pray for Donald Trump.

Doctrine of Denver Conference pt. 3

A popular phrase amongst Snufferites is that the Lord has set his hand again the second time.

At the conference, Paul Durham said, “I bear witness that the Lord Jesus Christ has set forth His hand the second time in our day to recover His people.”

Let’s look at where this phrase originally comes from….

Isaiah 11:

10 ¶ And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

With Section 113, we learn that the root of Jesse is a servant of God:

5 What is the root of Jesse spoken of in the 10th verse of the 11th chapter?

6 Behold, thus saith the Lord, it is a descendant of Jesse, as well as of Joseph, unto whom rightly belongs the priesthood, and the keys of the kingdom, for an ensign, and for the gathering of my people in the last days.

In my last post, I explained how the root of Jesse is actually Sidney Rigdon.

https://themarvelouswork.com/2017/03/23/doctrine-of-denver-conference-pt-2-qa/

Isaiah 11:1 explains that the “Branch” prophet is synonymous with the root of Jesse.

Sometimes I think Warren Jeffs understands the scriptures better than Denver Snuffer… Warren released his own ensign to the nations while in prison, even claiming to be the spokesman! Davey Snuffer keeps saying that the Lord has set his hand again, yet where is the ensign? Who is the root of Jesse???

I am positive that Sidney Rigdon is the root, and we need to be waiting for his ensign. Another piece of evidence that this is the case is by comparing Isaiah’s description of the ensign, to the role of Sidney Rigdon as contained in the Doctrine and Covenants.

Isaiah 18:

3 All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifteth up an ensign on the mountains; and when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye.

Now let’s look at Section 124:

104 And if he will offer unto me an acceptable offering, and acknowledgments, and remain with my people, behold, I, the Lord your God, will heal him that he shall be healed; and he shall lift up his voice again on the mountains, and be a spokesman before my face.

Sidney Rigdon will be healed, and lift his voice on the mountains!

This was a conditional promise, though.

Did Sidney Rigdon offer an acceptable offering? He was commanded to remain with the people– Did he do this?

YES!

Joseph Smith was running around sleeping with women—even trying to get with Sidney’s daughter—and yet Sidney NEVER SPOKE OUT against Joseph.

If the prophet of the church was trying to get with my daughter, I think I would run town.

However, Sidney followed the commands of God! He remained with the people.

After Joseph died, the church turned against Sidney and excommunicated him.

Sidney Rigdon was the scapegoat offering that Leviticus 16 outlines. Being tossed out of the church was part of his acceptable offering.

He was the true successor to Joseph/Hyrum.

The church should have heeded him. The church was told in Section 124:

45 And if my people will hearken unto my voice, and unto the voice of my servants whom I have appointed to lead my people, behold, verily I say unto you, they shall not be moved out of their place.

Going to Utah was a result of not hearkening to God’s true servants!! Had they listened to Sidney, they would not have been moved out of their place!

To me, it’s all so obvious.

To further clarify, we can identify exactly where the mountain is that the ensign will go forth.

It is Kirtland.

That is the mountain of the Lord’s house.

One of the most ridiculous things that Denver Snuffer said during this conference is that God still hadn’t appointed the new place of gathering.

HOW RIDICULOUS IS THAT!

Section 101:

20 And, behold, there is none other place appointed than that which I have appointed; neither shall there be any other place appointed than that which I have appointed, for the work of the gathering of my saints—

There is not going to be a newly designated place!!!!

Section 84:

4 Verily this is the word of the Lord, that the city New Jerusalem shall be built by the gathering of the saints, beginning at this place, even the place of the temple, which temple shall be reared in this generation.

The gathering will begin in Kirtland.

That’s where the solemn assembly will be, and the endowment of power, which will enable God’s servants to go forth FOR THE LAST TIME and gather the elect from the four corners of the earth.

When this happens….

Then you can start saying the Lord has set his hand again the second time.
