PRESIDENT NELSON - A VISITOR FROM THE OTHER SIDE

This was definitely worth passing along:

http://www.ldsliving.com/The-Questions-President-Nelson-s-Grandfather-Asked-a-Visitor-from-the-Spirit-World-the-Surprising-Answers/s/85664

Similar to the experience of when my son and mother visied my father a month after my mother died and about 8 months after my son died.

Enjoy!

YOUR GAYNESS FACTOR..

Someone asked me whether they would be considered gay based on how many boys/girls they had.

I spend a little bit of time on my response - so I thought I would put it out there for consumption and for tips on "breeding" with your sweetie.  Please don't get offended - this is just an opinion of a non-medical personnel....  Not Final Judgment where you will be cast off into a sleazy bathhouse in San Fran, right before the EQ turns the whole mess upside down and disappears it's ridiculousness from ever being seen again:


Haha…. Nope I am pretty sure you are not gay!  Mar____’s dad was definitely more-so than a three dollar bill….  I was very upset even as a teen that he was selfish enough to throw his family to the wolves.  They ended up going from a beautiful large home to living in a single wide mobile home that was probably not fit for 3 people let alone six.  It was humiliating for them as children to be pillars of the community and then to be cast to the fringes of all social circles.  I really had a thing for Mar____ and hoped she would join the Church.
 I highly doubt about  ______ either – of all people.  He is kind of my definition of what a real man should be.
 Fact is this (and you will not find this stuff on the interwebz these politically correct days) – but it was clear from studies that “came out” in the late 90’s that those with lower testosterone levels have a bump in the ratio of girls over boys.  This is due to lower male sperm counts.  It can also be that the time of conception simply hit earlier in the cycle of the woman when the egg was higher in the uterus when male sperm with lower motility could not make it “over the beach” (cervix) and get high enough in the uterus with enough vibrancy left to penetrate the egg and win the battle with the competing female sperm.   pH of the woman’s uterus is also a factor – so there is a chance a woman could also contribute to this.  The tilt of the cervix in relation to the vagina is also a factor.  ______ has a very tilted cervix (high beach head – think Normandy with machine gun nests at the top) and we found out one of her ovaries was not popping out eggs every other month.  The tilted cervix makes it hard for the “lower motility” male sperm to make it over.  I solved that by changing positions during intercourse and observing (with few data points to confirm) which month we needed to “make a push” during the fertile window.  After losing Dallin, I went pretty deep in the whole fertility thing because I wanted to make sure we were able to make some good backup copies.
 Things that reflect lower testosterone levels can come from a tendency within families (does a guy have a bunch of brothers or sisters?) or just a good mix.  I come from a family that had 3b and 5g.  That is a one child swing.  _______ has no data other than herself from her biological father – and I have always wondered about it.  Counting Dallin, we ended up with a 3g and 2b mix – again, less than a one child swing.  If we had been able to have one more – and it had been a boy; or one more girl, then another boy, it would be a 4g + 3b mix.  My other brothers have a 2b +2g mix and 3g+1b mix.  My guess is that I could average them out and come to the conclusion that our “gayness factor” is probably in the middle.
 Another check is literally to look at the fingers of both hands on either side of the middle finger.  The longer your ring finger is compared to your pointer, the lower the “gayness factor” is.  At the point where the fetus gets the shot of testosterone that makes it a boy or a girl, the fingers are also developing – so this is a marker.
 Another factor is the thing above the lip but below the nose (cannot remember what it is called – septum?).  The more pronounced it is, the more testosterone a male got in the womb.  Women are VERY attracted to this in a man – precisely because it indicates an increase in testosterone levels that she can rely on to protect/father children/provide for the family unit.
 Those are all nature factors.  Nurture is a whole new set of factors.  My BIL (who is clearly a man),  is a risk-taker (just started his own Keto diet business) – yet has 8g+1b (last set of twins had a girl + a Down’s syndrome boy).  Being raised by a mother increases the gayness factor (my dad was gone a lot).   There are a ton of nurture factors that pull in.
 There was an article just the other day that said that billionaires predominantly have more boys than girls.  They are likely where they are at due to being risk-takers; which is largely attributes to higher T-levels.  This is carved in stone.
 So, the short of it is that there are TONS of factors – but part of the equation is how many phyto-estrogens a person is exposed to (check out the increase of asexual fish due to sewage treatment plants that cannot neutralize the effects of birth control pills in the effluent) – or plasticizers that are expelled into the waterways.  These all serve to feminize males (some of it, I am sure is on purpose).  Large portions of our youth who are apathetic when it comes to women (no aggressive “girl chasing”), likely are somewhat effeminized due to nurture/environment.  Our generation did not grow up with as much stuff in the environment (hormones in milk, plastics, birth control pills).  Also, drinking water in Cardston is higher up the watershed for those on city water – so we have a greater chance of not being polluted from the environment.  Folks in Lethie who are slurping up all the birth control pill-laden effluent from Cardston are probably a little gayer than we are…. Lol  Medicine Hat, a whole new level….
 Hopefully, that gives you a larger picture of the scope of what I understand of the situation out there.  I would definitely start with the finger check.  I never got to see Mar____’s dad’s fingers to verify that detail.
 Could be a timing thing of the wife when she ovulates versus increased testosterone/progesterone levels in the woman and increased chances for mating earlier in her cycle, etc.
 Hope that answers your questions.  Fact is, if you are worried, then you probably ought to be worried.  If you are not – then you probably should not be.  Kind of like questions of personal worthiness; if you are concerned about stuff going into a TR interview, then there is likely something that needs to be addressed.

DEFINITION OF THE HOLY SEED - TEMPLE SCRIP FOR THE NGHT

So, as is my custom, I prayed to know what the Lord would have me know and got Mosiah 15 that contains this nice, concise definition:

10 And now I say unto you, who shall declare his generation? Behold, I say unto you, that when his soul has been made an offering for sin he shall see his seed. And now what say ye? And who shall be his seed?
11 Behold I say unto you, that whosoever has heard the words of the prophets, yea, all the holy prophets who have prophesied concerning the coming of the Lord—I say unto you, that all those who have hearkened unto their words, and believed that the Lord would redeem his people, and have looked forward to that day for a remission of their sins, I say unto you, that these are his seed, or they are the heirs of the kingdom of God.
12 For these are they whose sins he has borne; these are they for whom he has died, to redeem them from their transgressions. And now, are they not his seed?
13 Yea, and are not the prophets, every one that has opened his mouth to prophesy, that has not fallen into transgression, I mean all the holy prophets ever since the world began? I say unto you that they are his seed.
14 And these are they who have published peace, who have brought good tidings of good, who have published salvation; and said unto Zion: Thy God reigneth!

This holy seed will constitute about 10 percent - and they will make it through the tribulations which are about to come on this people.  The rest will be destroyed. per Isaiah.  The Savior said that great are the words of Isaiah.

Here is the quote from 2 Nephi 16:

DAVE HODGES AND RED DAWN

This may sound like a lot of fear mongering - but indeed interesting....:

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/connecting-the-dots-phase-i-of-the-coming-red-dawn-invasion-is-nearing-completion/

It reads just like most fringe LDS prophecy (which I espouse and peddle....).

We have hacked off most of the rest of the world (much of it justified - gaining back ground that the previous socialist pigs and traitors gave away).

If this starts in Chicago, it will get interesting....  I will have the last laugh - in the whole matter.

JAMES COMMIE JUST SENT A SIGNAL?

The Deep State's homey, Comey just tweeted something about Trump from Mount Rushmore - after Trump released a bunch of docs documenting the activities of the Deep State.

I am sure he is not there - but the picture of four dead presidents likely was a signal to Trump that he may join them if he is not careful.

Me??  I say we just round them all up and find a whole BUNCH of rope....:

Picture it....  Picture it.....

RAISING KIDS WITH A RELIGIOUS BACKBONE, REDUCES MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES

I love the quote, "We are spiritual beings, having a mortal experience...."

This kind of nails down that concept; if you unhinge from who you really are, a divine son or daughter of a loving God of the universe - you will ultimately fail.  I told this to my oldest - and she never really got what I was trying to get at.  I said, "You can be the most successful person in education, in honors of men (degrees/positions/wealth), the most beautiful/handsome person, the most [place your thing here] - but IF you fail to address the most important thing in life; YOUR SPIRITUALITY; you simply are a failure."

It is pretty much where the rubber meets the road in life.  I have seen so many.  My MIL, for example: had beauty at a younger age (we all get old/saggy/wrinkly/weak/worn out), has spent her life in the pursuit of more wealth (has been a good steward over what she has) - but has let her spirituality fall by the wayside and soon will go to her grave (as we all will) missing the most key component in life.  Precisely because beauty and money and power cannot be taken with a person to the other side.  Simply not transportable.  The only thing you can take is a beautiful countenance filled with the light of Christ.  As a teen, life seems boundless - but I  can tell you that I am facing my 50th this week - and am realizing just how finite the resource of life is.

I have much to refine myself of (repent) while I still am in this flesh - so, I see my mortality in terms of it's finiteness.  Thankfully, age and wisdom and raw experience is something that helps in that quest.  A marriage to a good woman also helps.  One of the greatest aids is an eternal companion that has your back.  Kids are a good aid - as they reflect you back at you.  Sometimes, you see your roughest qualities come out in them (or they call you out on them), and it facilitates your changes.

So, enough philosophising, and to the story:

WE NEED TO SHED OUR DELUSIONS

This is just things as they are. 

We should realize that we have to go through much in order to be perfected.

"The Lord said in September 1831, “Now it is called today until the coming of the Son of Man, and verily it is a day of sacrifice … of my people” (D&C 64:23; italics added).
“Let us here observe, that a religion that does not require the sacrifice of all things never has power sufficient to produce the faith necessary unto life and salvation” (Joseph Smith, Lectures on Faith, 6:7)...
“It is in vain for persons to fancy to themselves that they are heirs with those … who have offered their all in sacrifice … unless they, in like manner, offer unto him the same sacrifice (Lectures on Faith, 6:8)."(This Is a Day of Sacrifice, Ezra Taft Benson)

THE AIR THAT I BREATHE

I dedicate this song to my wife of over 26 years:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7duPNQCp-w4

In a few short weeks, we start our jubilee years together.  We have been together with each other longer than we have been apart.

Staying true to each other through thick and thin is what makes the bond that can last the eternities.  People seem to have lost that desire and ability to just stick it out even through the toughest of times.

With eternal perspective we know the vagaries of this life are just momentary tests of our will, honor, integrity and desire to be in Father's presence again.

HURRICANE FLORENCE - CAT 5??

If this hits land, it has some seriously bad potential!

https://miami.cbslocal.com/2018/09/12/national-hurricane-center-director-florence/

Predicted 50-80ft waves!

Bad stuff.  Little can survive that onslaught.

We just had a solar forecast showing a massive stream of particles streaming from a hole in the sun.

Likely the two things are linked.  The sun has been quite weird lately.

It is all related.

POWER IN THE PRIESTHOOD

This is one of my favorite stories, ever:

http://www.latterdayblog.com/vision-miracles-of-iohani-wolfgramm.html#more-233

This blogger does his research meticulously.

I have a few comments on this story.  I had read it the year before our son (named after Dallin H. Oaks) died.  The first thing I did was to call my hometeacher to use our Priesthood to raise him back up.  I was not thinking straight (was pretty much out of my mind as the "protector" that had somehow not done my job for the little guy), and I did not/could not even formulate the idea that he was simply called home and the dream I had been given in the night confirmed this.

Iohanni was much more level-headed with his tragedy.  It was given to him to increase the faith of the righteous around him.  Incidentally, I later corresponded with this daughter (that was raised from the dead - who was a nurse at the time in SL Valley; 2003).  She compiled her father's experiences and published them in a book which I asked and paid for a copy of.

In blessing his daughter, Iohanni simply reviewed all of the cases for the Lord where miracles had been granted on behalf of the faithful.  He likely then reviewed himself (repented/asked for forgiveness of recent personal shortcomings) and then proceeded to bless her - AFTER the Spirit moved upon him.  THIS was a TEXTBOOK use of the power of the Priesthood.

I urge ALL males who would like to perfect their gift to follow this formula.  I have the gift of healing - and have used it in this manner to be an instrument in the Lord's hands to remove the cancer from my friend's foot.  He was finally desperate and humble enough when they told him he had two weeks before the operation to amputate the foot to keep the cells from spreading (and requiring additional amputations up that limb).  He went in for the pre-op and they told him to go home.  It had completely reversed itself.  The key in both cases - was that the person who needed to be healed had faith in their Lord Jesus Christ.

That is where the power is.  The Priesthood is just a conduit for access to the Lord's healing power and grace.
