Volume II, ISSUE III Summer/2005


"And he said unto them: Behold, I know your thoughts, and ye have desired the thing which John, my beloved, who was with me in my ministry, before that I was lifted up by the Jews, desired of me. Therefore, more blessed are ye, for ye shall never taste of death; but ye shall live to behold all the doings of the Father unto the children of men, even until all things shall be fulfilled according to the will of the Father, when I shall come in my glory with the powers of heaven. And ye shall never endure the pains of death; but when I shall come in my glory ye shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye from mortality to immortality; and then shall ye be blessed in the kingdom of my Father." (Book of Mormon | 3 Nephi 28:6 - 8)

According to Book of Mormon scripture, is clear that translated beings as John the Revelator and the Three Nephites are to come among the peoples of the earth in the last days, including the LDS Mormons and perform marvelous works. It clearly states that to reject one of them means it would be better to never have been born for those who would do so:

"And it shall come to pass, when the Lord seeth fit in his wisdom that they shall minister unto all the scattered tribes of Israel, and unto all nations, kindreds, tongues and people, and shall bring out of them unto Jesus many souls, that their desire may be fulfilled, and also because of the convincing power of God which is in them. And they are as the angels of God, and if they shall pray unto the Father in the name of Jesus they can show themselves unto whatsoever man it seemeth them good. Therefore, great and marvelous works shall be wrought by them, before the great and coming day when all people must surely stand before the judgmentĖseat of Christ; Yea even among the Gentiles shall there be a great and marvelous work wrought by them, before that judgment day.

" And if ye had all the scriptures which give an account of all the marvelous works of Christ, ye would, according to the words of Christ, know that these things must surely come. And wo be unto him that will not hearken unto the words of Jesus, and also to them whom he hath chosen and sent among them; for whoso receiveth not the words of Jesus and the words of those whom he hath sent receiveth not him; and therefore he will not receive them at the last day; And it would be better for them if they had not been born. For do ye suppose that ye can get rid of the justice of an offended God, who hath been trampled under feet of men, that thereby salvation might come?" (Book of Mormon | 3 Nephi 28:29 - 35)

" No prophet is accepted in his own country."(New Testament | Luke 4:24)

This scripture remains more true than at any time in the existence of the earth. And so those with the influence over the LDS people have taught them to shun a righteous man, to shun truth, and allow themselves, their country and the world to continue in a state of slumber. None except false prophets preaching the inconsequential are accepted as prophets today by those who consider themselves righteous enough to discern of the Lordís servants.

"But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land; But unto none of them was Elias sent..." (New Testament | Luke 4:24 - 26)

Where is a man of Christ-like qualities, one who possesses a love for his children of such magnitude, he would sacrifice any worldly thing, even enduring the works of those who seek his dishonor and eventual destruction, if only he could bring his children and the people of Israel to righteousness, so they may have their souls preserved in the Kingdom of God?

Who will not submit to the rule and ways of Satan? Where is that man who will not sacrifice and submit his childrenís eternal salvation to the teachings of Satan and worldly powers without the protest of just indignation? As the world slowly awakens to the tragic facts that sacred principles of liberty and freedom are slowly succumbing to the grasp of emerging forces of evil, the American Patriot is becoming endangered. Those that have not successfully erased the principles of what an American patriot stands for now seek to alter the definition of patriotism and American principles of liberty, to confuse and cloud the minds of those that would seek to identify themselves with such a cause; when they are successful in their motives, the America established by the blood of our founding fathers will be a faded memory. And those in the world who had been given the trust of being valiant only to betray their calling - even if it meant the needless slaughter of the innocent, self-servingly protect those credentials bestowed upon them by the worldly powers. Does not the world wish a true man of the Lord would rise up to rebuke and denounce corruption and evil tyranny? Does the world not wish for that knowledge of the Lord which will protect them from the awful calamities which come from the judgements of God on a wicked society?

"And also that God hath set his hand and seal to change the times and seasons, and to blind their minds, that they may not understand his marvelous workings; that he may prove them also and take them in their own craftiness; Also because their hearts are corrupted, and the things which they are willing to bring upon others, and love to have others suffer, may come upon themselves to the very uttermost;" (Doctrine and Covenants | Section 121:12 - 13)

Must the fate of mankind be to continually betray the souls of their children and their future generations as a result of not being valiant for Christ, and instead bowing in cowardice to worldly precepts? Has the Lord not foreseen the works of Satan to infiltrate and subdue all churches and governments with the aim of their eventual overthrow? Has he not sent forth servants to those with the power to warn against the overthrow of our most precious liberties from the dark forces threatening our country, and what has become of them?

Satanís plan has installed mockers at all levels of society to stigmatize and scoff at the honorable and the valiant, so that this generation will continue the works of their fathers, and future generations will do the same; to meet the challenge to take up the Lordís cross with cowardice, and continue Satanís plan of merchandising the souls of all of our children and their children to allow them to temporarily escape from the glare of the mockers, for to be valiant for the unpopular cause of Christ today is considered worse than the scorn and ridicule awaiting those who do not succumb to those servants of Satan he has planted at all levels of our culture.

"... was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." (New Testament | Revelation 17:5)

In this time of great peril, the evidence becomes more fully visible of Satanís designs to overthrow all that is precious in America and destroy the country. And those who take for granted that America is the most powerful and dominant country in the world are contributing to her eventual downfall. Satanís plan is to eliminate old American patriotism and replace it with distorted perceptions of what defines America, to turn Americans against each other, to teach propaganda to get Americans to murder their own offspring to efficiently accomplish reduction of a great countryís strength and vitality. Preach division, trumpet division, headline "Americans are divided"; then turn hatred loose until Americans are at each others throats with a thirst for their own countrymanís blood. Those preaching a divided America of hatred and bitterness and convince the masses that America must conform to the standards of other worldís tyrannical regimes seem determined to subdue the once great America, and cause the Rome-like downfall of a great nation. The genuinely patriotic American patriot is endangered like no other time. In the great test for mankind, to be worthy of the Saviorís blessings, most evidence seems to indicate that mankind is lacking. Evil men with evil ideologies are allowed to multiply their wicked precepts and bind up our future and the souls of our children in doing so.

" Woe unto him that pursueth victory at any price; and also unto him that pursueth peace at any price. And let this be your Lord's answer concerning your disputations; that you pursue justice at any price, when it is yours to do; and if wisdom should justify, that you temper it with mercy. For I will uphold the just man and the just nation, saith the Lord; and together, the cruel hearted and the faint_hearted, will I condemn." (From The Word of the Lord)

Who could have saved America? Where could this knowledge have been given to help America counteract the threats with which now threaten our downfall? Surely a message from heaven would be sent to help the sincere minded and the righteous. Who could have saved America with this knowledge? Which people have rejected even an angel from heaven? Now content to seek cover in the shifting sands of neutrality, only one people in the United States are content with the way they are being led during Americaís crisis. A true man of God is a man the general populace fears to know. For his words cut to the bone of a guilty conscience and all who stumble onto the path of his words shrink and shrivel, finding them too mighty to confront or even acknowledge. Paulís prophecies are fulfilled; in our time the people only hire preachers to tell them what they want to hear. Corrupt politicians, religious authorities and even court systems in Utah have successfully taught and pacified the populace to be content with the status quo, to prevent inquisitive minds from delving too deeply; for anything or anyone taking a strong position against evil is stigmatized, for most cringe at Satanís politically correct agenda and endorsed terminology which may accuse them or their ideas to be "extreme."

"I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:" Revelation 3:15_17

The Word of the Lord: "The path of peace is no longer found in her borders and her statue of justice is broken down. Her honorable men have done it. Her judges connive with men of shrewd devices and are full of pandering. Her halls of legislation are corrupted with bribery and the people of that land seek to conceal away the lawless. Everywhere is heard the voice of them that cried, release unto us Barabbas. The statutes of the law, they will not suffer to be enforced; but esteem it worthy to shield the guilty. And the crafty defense of the murderer is rewarded with honor; for the evil technicalities of the law, are turned to the profit and the glory of professional men; while they who shed the blood of innocence go free. Her forces of law and order are become conspirators in crime; and her criminals are fast multiplying in the highways of her notable cities. Thus, the land is filled with violence, and there is no safety.

"Shall such a people govern? Where is the peaceful dwelling place of your fathers? The place of safety, for my little ones, that they may not grow up corrupted? Answer thou me, shall such a people govern? And shall these things continue, till there are none righteous among them that are left to dwell upon the earth, even as it was in the days of Noah? Is it not well that I have numbered your days, to make an end of them? Answer me in this also, saith the Lord.

"And ye boast of liberty. Has not that liberty which your fathers obtained in blood, become a delusion and a sham? Hear now the Lord. You grind the face of the poor; and for the toiler, the producer of all your material wealth, you have no mercy; you would yoke him as a beast of burden. The widow and the orphan, where is your provision for them? Your shrewd men rob them, and you leave them alone to perish. Also the feeble and the aged _ show me the providing statute. Only the criminal do you house and feed, and all my little ones must suffer. The strong ones who make the law make it unto themselves, while the helpless perish under their care.

And will you call this liberty? Aye, and will you celebrate it, forgetful of your oppressions? Behold, is not bondage the name thereof ? Do they enjoy liberty whom you grind down, and in your greed, ride upon their necks? Is there any liberty at all when there is not liberty for all? Or, is it liberty, that you possess a franchise of sovereign power to return corrupt men to office, who rule in unrighteousness, and continually crush the weak under foot?

"Hear now the Lord speak. I will drive you from the seat of authority. There shall not a corrupt man be left to rob and to plunder my people, saith the Lord. Yea, and I will break down the strong pillars of your constitution, except you remember the helpless, to set my people free. For the Lord will make bare his strong right arm, and he himself will be their emancipator. My statutes, which are the laws of the land when they are righteous, shall be made strong for the right, and for discipline also, saith the Lord. And the pernicious law shall be erased from the statute book; and I will double all your penalties for crime; and the murderer shall answer with his blood; and no man shall escape, saith the Lord.

"Ye know that it is written, that the Lord cannot endure the least degree of iniquity; why then will you nurse it, and mother the lawless as a suckling child, as if you did the world a service? Will you comfort and protect the criminal, that they may leaven my people with the spirit of crime? And will you call it charity and an acceptable service to God?" 13:5-12

How Do You Keep a Cover-up Perpetuated?

How do you prevent discourse of truthfulness? How do you hide the truth from your children, and their children, and keep truth from all you have met acquaintance and their children as well? How is such a monumental and gargantuan task perpetuated, so that even those who stumble onto truth never have the courage to share it? How is it accomplished to teach many to shun truth when it comes near?

Will there be a people who love their children enough to allow them an opportunity to save their souls instead of generations of parents who consistently betray their childrenís salvations to the corrupted interpretations of good and evil concocted by the evil definitions of what constitutes truth in our society - who will value their children enough to nurture them spiritually instead of letting the state teachings destroy their souls? How do you keep people from reclaiming their lost souls and keep even your very own children from re-discovering theirs? For generations our children have been preyed upon by those who get gain from the evil fruits of propaganda and their fathers and mothers have willingly allowed them to be victimized.

What would the Lord have wanted done a half century ago to prevent this tragedy? A man was given a message from the Lord and now for half a century has warned of evil designs to overthrow America. A man who 50 years ago was giving information on designs of evil in our country. A man, only one known man on the planet given knowledge and comprehension of the restored Gospel through Joseph Smith. If it were not so, if the LDS Church leaders were truly great, truly righteous and only putting forth good fruit and good works, if this man was in fact insignificant and ignorant, why did representatives of the current LDS Church seek to persecute, slander and destroy him? Would the truly righteous and great bother with efforts to persecute one man if he were of inferior intelligence to them?

A Church founded on miracles and a direct connection linking the earth to heaven through heavenly events has now been transformed into a business corporation, a lifeless specter of the Church founded upon holy principles. The restoration of the Gospel through Joseph Smith is an amazingly beautiful story retold in his own words in the Pearl of Great Price (Joseph Smith, Chapter 2), setting a course for future generations to have a clear cut choice between knowledge of the true points of the gospel and serving the Savior, or to be among those described in the quote "darkness covered the earth and gross darkness the the minds of the people." Then how could the true points of LDS Church history and of the Gospel have been grossly distorted or forgotten less than two centuries later?

At the conclusion of the last chapter of the Pearl of Great Price, Oliver Cowdery writes: "These were days never to be forgotten__ to sit under the sound of a voice directed by heaven, awakened the utmost gratitude in this bosom!....some thousands have stepped forward amid the frowns of bigots and the calumny of hypocrites, and embraced the Gospel of Christ....For the question might be asked, have men authority to administer in the name of Christ, who deny revelations, when His testimony is no less than the spirit of of prophecy, and His religion based, built and sustained by immediate revelations, in all ages of the world when He has had a people on earth?"

And if the several million men upon whom the priesthood was conferred were actually valiantly proclaiming the truth as they were entrusted, would a condition of chaos and confusion have been given such free rein to bind and rule the minds of men and all of mankind as is the situation in the world today? When it becomes apparent to the world that the LDS were entrusted with the powers of the priesthood and willingly accepted the calling to be a beacon of light and truth among chaos and confused teachings of Satan, how will it be accepted in the end that this grand plan has not been carried out and those guiding the current LDS Church have led in an exercise of fraud in deception to gain curry with the world? And why else stealthily persecute an innocent man, even to the point of causing extreme hardship for him to provide for his family? Would the Lord direct His Church leaders to act in such darkness? Is there anywhere in the Lordís teachings that provides for darkness of cunning works and teachings coinciding with "Mystery, Babylon"? For the modern LDS Church has come to represent the epitome of cowardice when it comes to truthful matters of spirituality and authentic Mormon Church history. And the modern LDS seek to distort Joseph Smith with fraudulent teachings down to the very fraudulent image of the Joseph Smith painting that they use.

How do you keep the masses in ignorance, afraid of contact with truthful things, except to teach them from their secret places to mock that which they fear? We hear each day how our once great nation is "divided" in its ideals. Great forces of evil preach the doctrines of division and demoralize decent citizens with polls declaring that the majority of Americans favor a culture of death and the murder of a handicapped person. As the norm of worldly society is to revel in a state of wickedness and block all who seek truth and spiritual knowledge, could it be that the Lord would fore-sake the entire planet to allow it to be doomed in its current state of wicked rebellion, or would the Lord want to establish a link connecting heaven and Earth, to direct knowledge in a world that has continually cast Him out and blocked His re-appearance? Beware, for the Lord has warned His appearance will be discreet, as a "thief in the night." Would the Lord leave not a single man to be born in the twentieth century who would not take up His cross and be valiant for truth as the apostles of old? Would the Lord simply allow all of the worldís vain religious preachers of Christianity and those that spread false teachings in place of the Mormon Religion to continue in their errors of preaching an uninspired altered form of the Lordís Gospel?

Most people cannot comprehend that a simple man living in near anonymity can be a source of great spiritual knowledge, that here is where the Lord imparts wisdom for our times. Let all who read this contemplate, if you were truly inspired of God, why would you remain in your present state of fear to contend with sound reason, rather than rising to the intellectual level of discourse you find fault with; and instead only rising to the level of crafty deception and mockers in your ability to explain your position or express your disagreement?

Would servants of God be so confounded as you yourselves are, as are anyone you seek out for wisdom? Can you do no better than only the wisdom of cunningness and deception? And will you now continue your murmurings against this man whose roots are of Mormon pioneer and true American ancestry, the descendant of some of the great leaders and martyrs who sacrificed and gave their lives to establish the Mormon faith? And if it were that this humble servant of the Lord had not been instructed by John the Revelator, how is it that this simple man has been given knowledge that confounds the worldís greatest appointed thinkers, and all who come face to face with this knowledge cannot reason beyond the level of deceptive cowards to contend with it? And if the Church bearing the name of the Lord were in fact led by honorable and inspired men, why must the works of the Church be seeking mysterious and new "allegorical" interpretations of plain and clear scripture to hide behind, instead of the truth of the Mormon religion taught by Joseph Smith and the clarity and simplicity of Book of Mormon scripture? Would the Lord seek to place His truth in darkness in a world where chaos and confusion, i.e., Mystery, Babylon, reigns supreme? If by some stretch of imagination the slander which permeates the secret darkness of todayís Mormon Church were true and the Lord were not to have mercy on the descendants of the roots and natural branches of the Mormon Church, why would He spare the corrupt grafted-in Gentiles that have now seized control of the Mormon Church?

"But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee...." (New Testament, Romans 11:17)

"For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee." (Romans 11:21)

Look for the Mustard seed...

"But you must look in the last days for a kingdom that in its commencement will be the least of all, and is compared to the mustard seed. If then it is the smallest of all kingdoms, we need not look for a large church like the church of Rome, or the English church, but like a mustard seed; look for that, and it will grow and become the largest of all herbs, so that the birds of the air will shelter in it." Jedediah M. Grant, Journal of Discourses, 1:345

On a beautiful mid-summer afternoon in 1952, a young man noticed a tall, impressive stranger cross his path and was immediately struck with a sense of awe at the majesty and greatness of the presence of the stranger. The powerful Spirit of the Lord immediately came over him and he realized it was His Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This young man was of pioneer roots, descended from original American and Mormon ancestors - many of whom experienced remarkable experiences, along with suffering, and sacrifice, including martyrdom at the hands of bloodthirsty mobs.

Eventually, the Lordís servant John the Revelator was sent to him to put him through experiences to help prepare him mentally and spiritually so that he would have strength to cope for the road that lay ahead. He showed the young man of Satanís plans and works to influence and control governments and churches of the world, and the tremendous influence and power Satan had to influence the world. The young man was made aware of a great mission to perform in service of the Lord, and he was also shown how Satan and his followers had become aware of him and intended exercise their abilities to prevent him from performing his work. He would receive instruction from an angel of the Lord that would bring him to an awareness of the plans of Satan to infiltrate and overthrow God's Church; he would be instructed to put this information out; he was then subjected to the most heinous of persecution and atrocities committed against his character for doing what he was commanded to do of God.

He would have his name and character marred and his integrity assassinated as a price for following the dictates of his conscience and the Holy Spirit and staying true to his beliefs. He would maintain his resolve to serve the Lord and build up the true gospel no matter what the circumstances. He would endure the cruelest of persecution and injustices committed against him and his family, and yet would still be would be more loyal to the church than any other man on earth.

"Man may deceive his fellow men, deception may follow deception, and the children of the wicked one may have power to seduce the foolish and the untaught, till naught but fiction feeds the many, and the fruit of falsehood carries in it's current the giddy to the grave; but one touch with the finger of his love, yes, one ray of glory from the upper world, or one word from the mouth of the Savior, from the bosom of eternity, strikes it all into insignificance, and blots it forever from the mind." (Comments of Oliver Cowdery, Joseph Smith, 2).

"Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country: And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another." New Testament, Matthew 21:33 - 35

After approaching LDS Church leaders with what he had learned, the young man was surprised at the rough treatment he received from them. He was soon to suffer immeasurably the worst indignations and physical abuse and deprivations of his constitutional liberties, even though he was filled with Christ-like love and had done nothing wrong or broken no law, for through John the Revelator he had covenanted with God that he would live an honorable life, a promise he kept for life on higher levels inconceivable in a world corrupted with Satanís power. Occasionally neighbors of this man would approach him and let him know that men were being sent from the LDS Church to spread vicious slander against him, such as "have nothing to do with him, he is an evil man," etc., and when asked if these men were sent from the local LDS stake or ward, the neighbors stressed that these men were sent directly from "higher-ups" in the church, meaning the LDS Church leaders themselves were going out of their way to discredit him and damage his reputation. This persecution also was directed at the manís family and the man in his employment in efforts to sabotage his ability to make a living to provide for his family. The LDS representatives would soon cut the manís family off from Church membership, including very small children, without fair or proper hearing when he refused to allow them near his son who was suffering a critical health crisis.

"And why are they not chosen? Because their hearts are set so much upon the things of this world, and aspire to the honors of men, that they do not learn this one lessonó That the rights of the priesthood are inseparably connected with the powers of heaven, and that the powers of heaven cannot be controlled nor handled only upon the principles of righteousness. That they may be conferred upon us, it is true; but when we undertake to cover our sins, or to gratify our pride, our vain ambition, or to exercise control or dominion or compulsion upon the souls of the children of men, in any degree of unrighteousness, behold, the heavens withdraw themselves; the Spirit of the Lord is grieved; and when it is withdrawn, Amen to the priesthood or the authority of that man. Behold, ere he is aware, he is left unto himself, to kick against the pricks, to persecute the saints, and to fight against God. We have learned by sad experience that it is the nature and disposition of almost all men, as soon as they get a little authority, as they suppose, they will immediately begin to exercise unrighteous dominion. Hence many are called, but few are chosen. (Doctrine and Covenants | Section 121:33 - 40)

Most who are knowledgeable in todayís common thinking in Christianity are in agreement today; the carefully laid plans of Satan to pollute and overthrow the divine roots and constitutional liberties of our nation founded on Biblical principles of freedom and liberty are causing mortal wounds to our great country, a trend seen over much of the twentieth century.

A simple but humble man who served his country honorably in World War II was soon to be instructed in knowledge directly from heaven that, if heeded by those of position of influence, would be of tremendous benefit to help accomplish Godís plan for mankindís hope for salvation, and expose Satanís carefully laid works to overthrow and destroy all that is of value and precious in good countries and organizations worldwide, including the weakening and destruction of America this young veteran loved. The young man went to highest offices of the LDS Church to share this knowledge, for it was clear the Lord wanted to send a messenger to his vineyard to give it opportunity to confront the threats to the souls of the Latter-day Saints.

Those currently ruling the modern LDS Church and its locally controlled government of Utah for some reason fear the true story ever coming out of their murderous treatment of this humble servant of the Lord, for the words of this now disabled American veteran contain wisdom from God that cause influential leaders to cower in their own ignorance of truth and Gospel principles; knowledge that if actually spread to the world by knowledgeable bearers of the priesthood would have significantly averted much of the chaos and confusion now enveloping the world and damning the souls of mankind the world over.

Church leaders would go on in later years to publicly state that they supported bringing information into the Church that, if true, would prove that the Church was founded on practices of the occult and witchcraft. This information would also implicate Joseph Smith, the founder of the Church, as not receiving the Golden Plates from an angel of God, but instead if proven true, would establish that the Golden Plates were received by an agent of the devil, and that Joseph Smith was involved with Satanic occult practices.

Highest ranking Church leaders made public the dealings with the purveyor of these scandalous documents - Mark Hofmann, and willingly posed for photographs with this individual, pertaining to negotiations to use Church funds to purchase the fraudulent documents. Comments from these Church leaders stated they did not doubt the authenticity of such information, it was in fact stated they were following a church teaching to seek them out, citing Article #13 which states to seek after things that are "lovely, or of good report." These events and statements were of such a significant nature, they were documented in most prominent newspapers, and were never denied by those associated with the LDS Church as being inaccurately reported. The revisions to Mormon history would soon be universally accepted if the attempted changes of historical fact were not challenged.

One man would protest the Hoffman dealings with great boldness. When he became aware of the unfolding circumstances, he instantly felt inspired to write letters to public newspaper forums defending Joseph Smith and the Mormon religion. His published letters stated the documents were forgeries, forgeries which had the same tone as all the other circulating anti_Mormon literature, that is, since the inception of the church, sworn enemies of the church had been manufacturing lies to destroy it; but if challenged, these lies have never provided concrete evidence originating from credible sources, as clever as some of the attempts have been. In previous times, as long as the church had been vigilant in safeguarding their history, these types of attacks had never had gained a foothold. This man would find that others who were speaking out in agreement with him were close to non-existant, and he was apparently alone in his stand, except for possibly a few of his own children. After writing and having his position published in a local newspaper he would receive a call from a prominent, national handwriting expert who would share his knowledge the documents were forgeries based on factual evidence, yet even he could not get people to believe him.

The documents mentioned earlier that would rewrite church history would eventually be exposed as forgeries, and the aforementioned forger/ dealer of these documents was exposed and imprisoned for the murders he committed in connection to his forgeries. There was one man however, who would never succumb to fraudulent lies against the Lordís Church nor waiver in his testimony of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and church history, and that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God.

How do you prevent the discovery of a great man? The man whom the world doesnít want to discover, and because of the exceedingly great spiritual wisdom of this man, he is a man feared by all who have come to know and confront his knowledge. A man, born in the twentieth century, who no other human being of his generation of that century can compare in spiritual insight, a man who brings that knowledge that makes all men of the Earth cower in their insecure natures rather than attempt to use rationale thinking to contend with him, for this man stands with the knowledge of God at his side, and no mere mortal can withstand such wisdom, this man who has suffered immeasurably in his life, yet throughout his life still exemplified Christ-like teachings.

The leaders of the Church could absolutely depend on other LDS authorities and people to rally to their side to support public statements and dealings in forgeries that would destroy the religion. The servant of the Lord had learned from experience; he could expect the same leaders to denounce him with accusations he is an apostate for his public statements challenging the Hofmann forgeries, for they were contrary to statements of the leaders and church spokesmen even to this day embrace the ideologies of apostates. At times in his life he had neighbors tell him that the Church had sent representatives to him and other neighbors, telling them "to have nothing to do with him, for he was an evil man." One neighbor reported he was very surprised to hear this, for there was nothing in their dealings as neighbors to indicate that the man in question was nothing but a good and decent man.

This man would never waiver in his testimony of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and church history, and that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God, despite experiencing the church casting out his family from the church without proper hearing, along with his small children, because he was their father, and because he had not renounced his beliefs. His small children who desired to be baptized into the church, were guilty of no crime other than being the children of a man in disfavor with church authorities. This done to a man with a voice of authority none dare refute, for he has seen the Lord Jesus Christ and heard His voice, and felt the Almighty Lordís tears fall on his face because of the evil persecution directed against him in this life. A man who has seen that same Jesus Christ which the highly regarded and educated Christian thinkers of the world so pathetically attempt to teach about. A man from whom emanates knowledge that confounds all of the worldís representative men, all rulers, statesmen, and thinkers. A man who was by covenant sworn to live an honorable life by a servant sent directly from the Lord, and as a result is a blessing and a guide to those seeking true spiritual knowledge. A man who carries the Spirit of the Lord with him, so that to truly know him is to feel the inspiration and benefit of that precious knowledge A man, who by his efforts to keep alive the thread connecting heaven and Earth confounds all who disagree, for the man has been given the truth of God, and no mortal man on the planet is any match for such knowledge. That man with little more formal education than grade school who served his country honorably. That man who has heard Godís message puts out truth that confounds all of those who are esteemed as the great thinkers of this worldís generation.

He was given knowledge that was vitally important and was told to put out what he received. Information of essential value to Godís covenant people, the American Indian Israelites. Indian leaders have been sought out and informed of Godís plan to redeem His people, the Great American Indian People, or the House of Israel. After publishing the promises of God to His people, the American Indian Lamanites for large parts of two decades, this man has sought to communicate vital spiritual knowledge to the tribal leaders of most North American tribes, funded with his pension. It must be prayed that those tribal leaders the Indians trust to lead them to happiness will fulfill their duties - to be advocates of those human rights and blessings given by God - and assist the American Indian people to gain that necessary spiritual knowledge, to lead them to the redeeming of their promised blessings of reclaiming the American Continents as the lands of their inheritance. It is his fervent prayer that those Indian leaders will impart this vital information for salvation to their people, so that they may be spared the judgements of the Lord upon America.

For if this knowledge of the Lordís servant does not come from God, why do all who find themselves confronted this knowledge find themselves confounded, and causes them to shrink with fear rather than use rational thought to contend against it; this is the result of a man having knowledge from God, and no man or group or church or government can contend against it rationally without fulfilling literal Biblical predictions of the scoffers that will rise up.

"Behold, there are many called, but few are chosen.

For two decades a man has published once forgotten messages to the American Indian of Godís promises restoring their lands to them and bringing to light the message that the Book of Mormon is an American Indian book written by their ancestors for the American Indians of today to reclaim their promised blessings in this 21st century. He has waged an independent campaign without outside assitance to keep the truth of the Book of the Mormon alive, so that the American Indian Israelites will come to a knowledge that the Book of Mormon is a book full of promised blessings for their people, and that the Gentiles who currently lead the LDS Church will only have opportunity at those same blessings if they repent, in hopes to be numbered among the Lamanites, for the purpose of the Saints original migration out West was to carry a message to the American Indian Lamanites, not to reach the stagnate state of spirituality they now occupy. A man of spiritual strength, robbed of most everything of worldly value by those who hate him; now left with almost nothing but a meager sustenance on which to live and preach his powerful message; those who have sought to subdue and gain complete control over the Lordís Church may have excercised the power of Satanís dominion to rob this servant of God of all that may be attained in this world, but they have not successfully stolen from him the Spirit of the Lord and the power of that knowledge which can only come from the Lord himself. The man inspired of the Holy Spirit, who the great so-called thinkers and philosophers of the world fear to reason with. And if this man be deprived of credit of being a true messenger of the Lord, where is a man preaching a light that is greater? Can the weak sermons of the worldly religious community compare in any form to the knowledge of light of a true man of God?

" Do the Latter Day Saints expect to settle in peace? MARK you, your peace has not come yet, for Lucifer is not yet bound; and while the earth is fearfully convulsed because of the wickedness on its face, the nations will gather themselves and make an effort to wrest the kingdom from the Saints, and destroy them root and branch.

" We are not coping with a few people here and there, but with the world, with all the enemies of God, with all hell, and with the devil and his host. That is "Mormonism."

"You need not wonder that we raise stout boys in the mountains, for we want children of the right blood; we do not want a scrubby breed here. Men of "Mormon" blood are not afraid to die. The men that tremble, and whose hearts go pit_a_pat because they have got to die, are not worth a picayune. A man that refuses to walk up in the track, no matter what comes, and steadily press forward, though there should be a lion in the way, is not of "Mormon" grit. That was the grit Joseph Smith had; and when he spoke, he spoke by the power of an endless Priesthood, which was upon him; and that is the power by which Brigham speaks. When he stood up in the majesty of his Priesthood, and rebuked the judges here, I know some of our milk_and_water_folks thought all the fat was in the fire. "Brother Brigham has gone rather too far; he might have spoken a little milder than he did; I think it would have been much better," &c. This was the language of some hearts; ...When a man of God speaks, let him speak what he pleases, and let all Israel say, Amen.

We expect to see and hear tell of earthquakes, and other mighty convulsions in the earth, as it has been in former times; and if the devil exerted his power in ancient days to destroy the work of God, so he will in the latter days." Jedediah M. Grant, JD 1:345

Word of the Lord: "From whence came the stones that killed the prophets? Were they from the highways of the Gentiles, or yet from the gates of Jerusalem? Were they not the gall stones of the bitterness of Israel? And Israel's stony heart, which their sins had petrified; and were they not gathered out from the Dead Sea of a spiritual kingdom? Behold, now, from the putrid waters I still smell a detestable odor; and who that hath scented the shores of the two seas, can distinguish?

"Will you cast me out, saith the Lord; and will you abandon me as a thing to be hated? Hear now the Lord speak: With a man will I rebuke a great nation, and with my rod will I punish a holy people."

Those who apostatize and reject the currently taught LDS religion do so not even knowing what it is they are rejecting, for the actual Mormon religion and thorough understanding of the Book of Mormon is no longer taught; so those that reject it are apostatizing against the darkness of apostate teachings mixed in with fragments of the true Mormon religion. It is prophesied that the Lord will raise up a great people among the House of Israel Native American people to redeem the Mormon Church and build the true Zion, with the great city of the New Jerusalem. And current Mormon Gentiles who assume they have irrevokable blessings and cannot be replaced in the Lordís Church need look no further than true Israel - the American Indian Israelites grafted into the Church who will be the chief inheritors of the Lordís promised blessings in the Book of Mormon to His Covenant people. It is those saints who have found themselves most oppressed and in lowly living conditions who will rise to take on the covenant blessings promised to the Lordís people.

"What hinders us in living as close to our religion as do the angels? Angels do not hinder us, God certainly does not, and we ought to say to devils, "You shall not." But in the midst of this people there is a set of thieves, idolaters, drunkards, whoremongers, and vile persons. It may be asked, "Shall we not draw the dividing line soon?" Yes, some will in due time get line enough to send them to hell. Many are pleading for revelations; do you suppose that Saints lack revelations? They have plenty of them, and they are stored in the archives of those who have understanding of the principles of the Priesthood, ready to be brought forth as the people need. I will again read a portion of the revelation, "For he that is compelled in all things the same is a slothful and not a wise servant, wherefore he receiveth no reward. Verily I say, men should be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many things of their own free will, and bring to pass much righteousness, for the power is in them wherein they are agents unto themselves, and inasmuch as men do good they shall in no wise lose their reward."

"There is one principle that I do wish the people would observe, that is, do not ask God to give you knowledge, when you are confident that you will not keep and rightly improve upon that knowledge. It is a mercy in God that many are as ignorant as they are, for were it not so they would not be borne with as they are. Do not ask for revelations to dictate you in this, that, or the other, unless you are sure that you can obey them. Do not suffer yourselves to falter in your faith, and to say that the door of revelation is closed, for I tell you that there are now too many for your good, unless you hearken more diligently than you have hitherto, unless you apply more closely in your lives what is revealed and live your religion more faithfully.

"A great many come to me and say, "I wish to do exactly as the Lord shall direct through you, brother Brigham." If I had the word of the Lord I would not dare give it to them, unless I knew it was an absolute duty. They never would obey it, because they are taught the word of the Lord here all the time, but do they hearken to it? Those who have wisdom within themselves, who have in possession the spirit of the Gospel, know what they hear from this stand. They know truth from error, they are satisfied, and never ask the Lord to give them more revelation, but to give them grace to observe and keep what they have received."

"You can perceive what kind of characters they are who need to be commanded, they are slothful and not wise servants. Many of you may inquire why I am urging this point today; because it is necessary, it ought to be done. I wish those who are Saints to walk uprightly before their God, and to do everything they can for their brethren who are not Saints. I desire every man and woman to exercise themselves to the utmost, for they will, in all probability, be lost unless we save them. You came to me and want to know the will of God, what for? It would send you to hell, as likely as not, for you will not do it, and that would lay the foundation for your condemnation, as it is written, Ď Those that receive the commandments of God and do not do them are damned.í" A Discourse by President Brigham Young, Delivered in the Bowery, Great Salt Lake City, June 15, 1856.

We now live in a day where millions of Americans grieve, many silently, at the apparent victory of evil overcoming of guaranteed constitutional rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. The evil face of tyranny begins to show its face and those with the elected responsibility to defend the Constitution have submitted those they were entrusted to defend to the claws of treachery. A nation now seemingly adrift has no public example of clear inspired leadership to rally behind. It is becoming popular even among American citizens to espouse that the sound principles of Americaís Constitution can be replaced with the lesser ideals of inferior nations. The betrayal of America is now entering stages of transition to a totalitarian tyrannical world conforming dictatorship of the government of Satan. The American Patriot is threatened to be relegated to an era now lost, of a country which stood for principles relegated to history books.

"Wherefore, I call upon the weak things of the world, those who are unlearned and despised, to thrash the nations by the power of my Spirit; And their arm shall be my arm, and I will be their shield and their buckler; and I will gird up their loins, and they shall fight manfully for me; and their enemies shall be under their feet; and I will let fall the sword in their behalf, and by the fire of mine indignation will I preserve them. And the poor and the meek shall have the gospel preached unto them, and they shall be looking forth for the time of my coming, for it is nigh at handó" (Doctrine and Covenants | Section 35:13 - 15)

"Joseph Smith stated that a man could get closer to God and get more knowledge necessary for salvation than any other book by reading the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is very plain and easy to understand, and means exactly what each sentence says. The writers of the Book of Mormon stated that they tried to make their language as plain as they possibly could so that it was easy to understand. It states man has but one choice, to choose whom he will serve, and then from then on he is acted upon by the one whom he has chosen to serve. It states to seek to find God while he can be found, the time will come when he canít be found, and manís probation is over.

"For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile: But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts. For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; God is witness" (New Testament | 1 Thessalonians 2:3 - 5)

It is very important to the world to accept the truth of the Book of Mormon. Lately there has been a definite trend in present LDS Church teachings to say that scriptures of the Book of Mormon are interpreted in various ways, such as "allegorical meanings", to cover for the many false teachings that have entered into the Church. There is a trend among LDS to try to make things in the Book of Mormon fit in with current research fads. There is a trend in the Mormons to try to make the Book of Mormon subject to different interpretations, to shroud the Book of Mormon in manís interpretations, thus closing the meaning and shrouding the beautiful message of the Book of Mormon, in contrived mysteries analyzed by men dwelling in darkness and dark modes of thought.

The scriptures plainly state the significance of Mystery, Babylon and deceit men will fall prey to. Who has chosen to stand up valiantly for the truth of the Book of Mormon as translated by Joseph Smith and has made the effort to defend and preserve the honor of Joseph Smith? It is a fruitless search, even among those professing to be Latter-day Saints. Heber C. Kimball predicted that the time would come when gold would be shoveled up like sand, because in that day men would realize the true riches would be in seeking their salvation instead of gold.

MYSTERY, BABYLON: "And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth." (New Testament | Revelation 18:23 - 24)

Find the Lord while he can be found, for the time will come when he canít be found. "Whoís on the Lordís side, who," ...who will rise up and valiantly defend the truth of the Book of Mormon from mystery Babylon? Who will there be connecting a thread on Earth to the infinite forces of heaven, to cleanse the earth with the raging glory of our Savior, Jesus Christ?

Who can define a measure of the Saviorís love? A power of incomprehensible description; only the brightness of the sun can give comparison to that force which is the Saviorís love. To feel a heavenly force of beauty and pure love so powerful in its effects upon the energies of the mortal body that this necessary force which nurtures us cannot remain in contact with those who have felt it, for it would have the same effect as mortal eyes continuously gazing upon the necessary healthful rays of our sun, but the overwhelming effects of such an attempt would soon render them useless, as would the continual presence of the Savior cause comparable effects upon the energies of the human body. Who on earth can exemplify such purity of love for the souls belonging to the children of God? Where is the man who preaches, who has actually taken the cross of the Lord upon himself?

"How long can rolling waters remain impure? What power shall stay the heavens? As well might man stretch forth his puny arm to stop the Missouri river in its decreed course, or to turn it up stream, as to hinder the Almighty from pouring down knowledge from heaven upon the heads of the Latter-day Saints." (Doctrine and Covenants | Section 121:33
