Boy, am I ever antsy after seeing how hard of a winter we have been through and watching the farmer down the road finally getting ready to break ground for planting on June 1st instead of the end of the usual April, due to the late and severe weather. Metals prices and food prices sky-rocketing. Things are just running out of control. I think we may be in the middle of it according to the words of Bishop John Koyle. He had the gift - and I will laugh at all the naysayers (I suppose including some in church leadership) that slapped him down all those years ago. He said there would be a harsh winter followed by a wet spring, followed by a harsh dry summer followed by the beginning of the famine. Right before that, the economic collapse would start. Considering that we had a 30-40% contraction in most of our major markets, I still maintain we are in the middle of the beginnings of a depression.....

However, immediately following the mild open winter, there would be a hot, dry summer. The crops would come up in the spring, and there would be considerable moisture, and the crops would be glorious (that is the word Bishop used to use.) He saw the wheat would grow up and head out beautifully, and the irrigated wheat would mature, but the dry land wheat would not have enough moisture to fill out. By harvest time the heads would curl over in a sort of crescent shape. This was shown to him in another dream wherein he saw he went into the wheat fields when they were binding the grain which looked like it would be a splendid crop. He picked up a bundle of wheat by the binding twine, and the head's end of the bundle came up with the butt end of the bundle hanging down because it was heavier. Realizing that the head end should have gone down if there had been good wheat in it, he examined the heads of wheat by crushing them in his hands to bring out the kernels. He found that the wheat was terribly shrunken and not fit for food. He was told by the messenger that this condition would bring about a shortage of food during the first year of harvest.
The second year he was shown would be the same only much less food raised. Still, the irrigated grain would be good. He was told we would need to store up the first and second years grain to supply food for the third and fourth years. The third year the shortage would be so great that there would hardly be anything raised for food. The fourth year they would not be able to raise anything for food.
He was shown in another dream that during the fourth year there would be plenty of money to buy food and he with others went up and down throughout the country seeking to buy food and they could not buy any. Any people who had a little food would not sell it at any price. During this time of famine there would be no rain to do any good. He saw the clouds would come up, and it would look like it was going to rain, but a wind would come up and blow the clouds away; and if there was any rain at all, it was just a few drops which were not sufficient to do any good.

I have seen basic grain prices skyrocket 30% or more in the last year. Get your food stored up and sit back and enjoy the ride. THIS OR THE NEXT FEW YEARS IS PROBABLY IT!!

Prayer About Second Coming
If I had not actually got into this work, & been called of God, I would back out. but I cannot back out. I have no doubt of the truth. were I going to prophecy I would prophecy the end will not come in 1844 or 5 or 6. or 40 years more there are those of the rising generation who shall not taste death til christ comes. I was once praying earnestly upon this subject.2 and a voice said unto me. My son, if thou livest til thou art 85 years of age, thou shalt see the face of the son of man.--I was left to draw my own conclusions concerning this & I took the liberty to conclude that if I did live til that time Jesus he would make his appearance.--but I do not say whether he will make his appearance or I shall go where he is.--

A Prophecy
¶ I prophecy in the name of the Lord God.--& let it be written. that the Son of Man will not come in the heavens till I am 85 years old 48 years hence or about 1890.--the Read 14 Rev. 6 verse another angel fly in the midst of heaven; for the hour of his judgment is come. to extermination--from commencement. commence when angel commences preaching this gospel 1 day--1000 years. 1000 years as 1 day.--41 yrs 8 months.-- only 6 years from the voice, saying. if thou live till thou art 85. years old. Hosea 6th chapter after 2 days &c 2520 years which bring it to 1890.--the Son of man never will be, never can be till the judgments spoken of for this hour are poured out, which judments are commenced.-

¶ Paul says ye are the children of light--& not of the darkness, that that day should not overtake us as a theif in the night.--it is not the design of the Almighty to come upon the earth & crush it & grind it to powder) he will reveal it to his servants the prophets. O what wondrous wise men there are going about & braying like--like an ass cry O, Lord, where is Joe Smith--Joe Smith.--whare--O Away up on the top of the topless throne aha.--&c--

¶ Jerusalem must be rebuilt.--& Judah return, must return & the temple water come out from under the temple--the waters of the dead sea be healed.--it will take some time to build the walls & the Temple. &c & all this must be done before Son of Man will make his appearance; wars & rumours of wars. signs in the heavens above on the earth beneath Sun turned to darkness moon to blood, oceans heaving beyond their bound.--then one grand sign of the son of the son of man [sic] in heaven. but what will the world do? they will say it is a planet. a comet, &c. consequently the sun [Son] of man will come as the sign of the soming of the son of man; is as the light of the morning cometh out of the east.--10 minutes before 6 singing.

Lord Will Tell His Prophets When 2nd Coming to Take Place
Remarks on the comeing of the Son of Man by Joseph Smith the Prophet. 3 Made in Nauvoo Christ says no man knoweth the day or the hour when the Son of Man cometh. This is a sweeping argument for sectarianism against Latter day ism. Did Christ speak this as a general principle throughout all generations Oh no he spoke in the present tense no man that was then liveing upon the footstool of God knew the day or the hour But he did not say that there was no man throughout all generations that should not know the day or the hour. No for this would be in flat contradiction with other scripture for the prophet says that God will do nothing but what he will reveal unto his Servants the prophets consequently if it is not made known to the Prophets it will not come to pass;
again we find Paul 1st Thesslonians 5th Chapter expressly points out the characters who shall not know the day nor the hour when the Son of Man cometh for says he it will come upon them as theif or unawares. Who are they they are the children of darkness or night. But to the Saints he says yea are not of the night nor of darkness of that that day should come upon you unawares. John the revelator says 14 chap 7th verse that the hour of his judgements is come they are precursers or forerunners of the comeing of Christ. read Matthew 24 Chap and all the Prophets.

He says then shall they see the Sign of the comeing of the Son of Man in the clouds of Heaven. How are we to see it Ans. As the lighting up of the morning or the dawning of the morning cometh from the east and shineth unto the west--So also is the comeing of the Son of Man. The dawning of the Morning makes its appearance in the east and moves along gradualy so also will the comeing of the Son of Man be. it will be small at its first appearance and gradually becomes larger untill every eye shall see it. Shall the Saints understand it Oh yes. Paul says so. Shall the wicked understand Oh no they attribute it to a naturn cause. They will probably suppose it is two great comets comeing in contact with each other

¶ It will be small at first and will grow larger and larger untill it will be all in a blaze so that every eye shall see it. Joseph Smith the Prophet.

From Wikipedia:

The chronicler Pedro Cieza de León offers some picturesque notes about the Chachapoyas:

"They are the whitest and most handsome of all the people that I have seen in Indies, and their wives were so beautiful that because of their gentleness, many of them deserved to be the Incas' wives and to also be taken to the Sun Temple (...) The women and their husbands always dressed in woolen clothes and in their heads they wear their llautos, which are a sign they wear to be known everywhere."

Their high jungle capital city of Gran Vilaya covers approx 120 square miles (thats 10x12 miles on each side), which is no small berg. Very interesting people - I would love to learn more of their history:

Explorer Discovers Peru Lost City
By RICK VECCHIO, Associated Press Writer
LIMA, Peru (AP) - An American explorer credited with discovering several
major Indian ruins in Peru's rain forests has pulled back the jungle curtain
to reveal another ancient city lost in time.
``I think it's Cajamarquilla, one of the fabulous lost cities of the
Chachapoyas people,'' said Gene Savoy, just returned from an 18-day
expedition into the high cloud forest in northern Peru.
Savoy on Friday described the Chachapoyas as tall, fierce, fair-skinned
warriors who were defeated in the late 15th century by Inca ruler Tupac
Yupanqui shortly before the Spanish conquest of Peru.
The Incas so respected their fighting prowess that they made the Chachapoyas
their bodyguards, he said.
``What we found is the vestiges of a lost jungle empire in the rain forest
of northeastern Peru,'' Savoy told The Associated Press.

Archaeologist Miguel Cornejo, one of 47 members of Savoy's expedition,
called the find ``a completely new discovery that constitutes a major
contribution to Peruvian archaeology and the world.''
The site, measuring 25 square miles, includes stone roads weaving through a
network of massive terraced cliffs and at least 36 burial towers, said
archaeologist Alberto Bueno. Both Bueno and Cornejo were assigned by the
Peruvian government to accompany Savoy.
``There were many more structures, at least 60 or 70, but they were obscured
by vegetation,'' Bueno said, adding that Savoy may have very well found the
legendary Cajamarquilla, mentioned by early Spanish colonial chroniclers.
The deeply set terraces, roads and ornate stone structures, many with
protruding carved faces, indicate a large concentration of people lived,
farmed and worshipped there, Bueno said.
The robust 73-year-old explorer, who lives most of the year in Reno, Nev.,
where he directs the Andean Explorers Foundation, has written three books
about his expeditions.
Savoy has discovered dozens of Peruvian ruins since the early 1960s. The
three most important were Vilcabamba, the last refuge of the Incas; Gran
Pajaten, a citadel city atop a jungle-shrouded peak; and Gran Vilaya, a
complex of more than 20,000 stone buildings in a damp, fogbound region of
the Andes that Peruvians call the ``jungle's eyebrow.''
He says Gran Vilaya, situated on a ridge 6,000 feet above the Maranon River,
was the capital of the Chachapoyas empire - one of seven legendary cities
strung like a necklace along the heights of the high jungle of northern
Last September, Savoy reported that he had found evidence of another of the
lost cities, Conturmarca, in a valley along the Tepna River.
On May 10, he ventured back into the jungle, 340 miles north of Lima,
accompanied by the archaeologists, a representative from the National
Cultural Institute and an armed detail from the national police.
Savoy said the official entourage was required under new government
regulations put into place after a grave robber sacked several of the burial
towers he had publicly identified after last year's expedition.


We can thank Tyndale for our modern freedom of religion and from oppression from the Catholic Church. He translated the Bible into english in order to give the common man (a plowboy would fit that bill) access to God's word so that they could refute the hellish practice of buying remission of sin through the purchase of indulgences; among others.

This is from a book by E.G. White that was given to my daughter by a stranger in a parking lot (I pointed out to her that E.G. would probably be referring to Ellen G. - the founder of Seventh Day Adventism) - but the quote is good nonetheless:

It was not long after that a learned Catholic doctor, engaging in controversy with him, exclaimed: "We were better to be without God's laws than the Pope's." Tyndale replied, "I defy the Pope and all his laws;and if God spare my life, ere many years I will cause a boy that driveth the plow to know more of the Scriptures than you do."
Anderson, Annals of the English Bible, p19.

Pretty interesting - without Tyndale's english rendition of the Bible which led to the King James version, Joseph would never have had access to the words of God in order to question it and ask the question - the most humble prayer of a plowboy that changed the world.....

I am re-posting an experience that I find to be one of the sweetest ever given to a father on this earth. May it touch your heart as it has touched mine:

I called Samuela Vehikite to assist me by anointing the consecrated oil on Tisina's head and as I began to utter the prayer, I couldn't say a word. My mouth was locked. My mind was blank. No words would come. But in a few minutes the Spirit spoke to me in my mind that there were so many unbelievers in and out of the house that had no faith that Tisina would ever recover from her accident, that I should send the people home.

I immediately opened my eyes and asked the people if they wanted Tisina to come back to life to please leave my home now so we can pray for her. Oh my! Non-members were furious and started to spit at me. Some picked up rocks and started throwing them at the house as they were leaving, calling me names. I knew the American doctor might help Tisina walk again, but how about her brain? I knew that only God who created her, who gave her life, would be the only one who could help Tisina completely recover and bring her memory back to normal again.

I asked Salote to go ahead and fix supper for the family, but I would go and pray for Tisina. I prayed and prayed and thanked the Lord for all His blessings to us, for sending us on a mission, but how I wouldn't like to part with any of my children yet because we have no white material for her burial nor funeral cloth in Tongatapu, but in Vava'u we did. I reminded the Lord of how He saved the Israelites by parting the waters of the Red Sea, how Christ raised people from the dead, and of the simple faith of a missionary who just had his daughter run over by a car and had been killed, you can understand of my love for her. I reviewed how Lazarus was raised after being in the tomb for four days, through faith and the power of the priesthood. I prayed and thanked the Lord for those great prophets of old and their faith and special callings in the church from Adam down to the prophet Joseph Smith. I said, 'I don't want a funeral away from all my family, and if this little girl has a special mission on earth to do, please spare her life so she can fulfill that blessing and her mission.' I was on my knees over four hours that evening. Finally the Lord heard my prayer and said to me, 'Tisina won't be with you tonight, but tomorrow.' A humble and very sweet warm feeling came over my heart and a great worry and fear was lifted from my shoulders that evening. I thanked God for the answer that I received.

I opened my eyes slowly, filled with deep gratitude and tears of joy. I went over to Salote and said, 'Not tonight, but tomorrow.' Salote and the children didn't touch any food that evening. Everyone was shocked and felt so bad about Tisina.

Samuela Vehikite and I waited and waited all night long and about 3:00am, we felt the Spirit fill our souls and knew that this was finally the right time for us to give Tisina her priesthood blessing. Samuela Vehikite anointed her and I sealed the blessing, I thanked the Lord and expressed his love to me in answering my prayers and said, 'Tisina, by the power of the Melchizedek Priesthood which we hold, we ask Thee, our Heavenly Father, to bless Tisina from the top of her head all the way down to her toes, that every bone, muscle, nerve, blood vessel, skin, nails, hair or any part of her body that has been broken, lost or damaged, through the power of the priesthood which we hold, we command it to return to it's normal place and start to function and to do their work, that she will be able to stand and her body will be returned and renewed with all its parts and start to function as they were before. We promise you through the holy power of the priesthood that when the sun rises in the morning, you will be raised up together with the sun. And when other witnesses hear this testimony of Tisina, they will also testify that Jesus is the Christ and through Him the Lord healed Tisina. Not tonight, but tomorrow, Tisina will walk with the rest of the family as the Spirits whispers.'

After the blessing everyone knelt down before they went to bed and in a circle offered a prayer, then we retired. I came into the room where Tisina still had her face covered with the cloth. She was still dead. I picked her up and laid her little broken head on my arm and kept her body close to me. Hours seemed to pass. I finally dozed off and on for about two more hours and about 6:00 a.m. I felt someone playing around my face and touching my hair. I slowly opened my eyes and to my surprise saw Tisina standing up playing with my face and hair with a big smile on her face.

I slowly reached out to feel Tisina's head. It was normal. I started to feel her hands, legs, face, everything that had been promised had come true. Samela Vehikite remembered that in her priesthood blessing that when the sun rose up in the morning she would rise up together with the sun. So he opened the window shades and sure enough, the sun had just barely risen in the sky. How excited we were to have our little daughter back with us again. We sang a special hymn to thank God for her return and said a long prayer of thanksgiving by me. A few minutes later a knock came to our door. Our Aunt Marie and Uncle Maile Niu, brought Tisina's burial clothing and her burial box and asked where the dead child was. I said she was the one that answered the door. "

Well, we all know that according to Joseph Smith, there will be a "Grand Sign" of the coming of the Son of Man. He said the people of the earth will think it to be a comet or a planet or something like that.

So far, I cannot shoot holes in this (YouTube LINK) guy's theories.... This might qualify with all the markers of the Grand Sign - and it is exactly 22 years from then until 2033 (a half hour - of silence in the heavens according to Kolob's time is 22 years).

Very cool stuff... How's that food storage coming along? I may be on vacation on the east side of the Rockies around that time. For years now, I have been expecting that a large earthquake would devastate the Rocky Mtn region associated with the Jewish calendar Day of Atonement and then another within a few weeks after our LDS General Conference in October.... This one fits the bill baby.

This great reference to a scientific paper talks about the interplay between planets and earthquakes: CLICK HERE FOR LINK


Anyone who has dug around on this blog for a while knows that I am a big fan of Velikovsky (CLICK LINK). He was intelligent and put alot of things together about interplanetary interplay and possible connections to Biblical events. His book was also open on the desk of Albert Einstein when he had slumped over and died. They were good friends.

I hope you take a moment to enjoy a little info about his life. You may find him well-quoted in coming times: VELIKOVSKY WIKIPEDIA

Definitely worth passing along. If you have not felt it, you will soon enough. If you do not have food storage and your spiritual and financial houses in order, I pity you. No one will be left unaffected - this is it.

Do your research on this stuff if you do not believe it:



People (within and without the Church) who mock what visionaries have said - things which can only be discerned by the Spirit and in the spirit of prophecy and revelation have dismissed many of the writings of Eliza R Snow - precisely because she was way too far ahead of them - and because their basal senses of things seen, heard, touched etc could not verify what she was saying.

Thus the stated purpose of this blog; which is to bring hidden things to light and verify where science is FINALLY catching up to revealed religion.

Here is something that backs her up 100% on hymn 323 of the 1897 (22nd Edition) Sacred Hymns and Spiritual Songs:


This article about blew my mind and is just one of the heavy hitters that talks of Velikovsky and the things he was mocked for a mere 50-60 years ago: CLICK ON LINK HERE



One of my favorite early Church writers, Mosiah Hancock, had many interesting things to say (CLICK ON THE COLORED TEXT FOR THE LINK TO HIS ENTIRE JOURNAL)and I have featured his writings several times on this blog. He had the following to say on the pre-existence and those who chose to follow Father's plan and those who chose to follow satan's plan:

I saw another, who seemed to be a very high military officer who arose and said: 'I will go down to yonder earth and surely I will bring all your children back to you so none of them shall be lost.'

The plan of the first was accepted as being the only sure plan for an exaltation The plan of the second was rejected with great kindness, but the second was not satisfied; and while the first stood in great humility by the side of the Father, the second with many who stood in with him, went about among the Heavenly hosts to advocate the plan, that was put forth as the rights of the second. This one was Lucifer, a son of the morning, for any had been with the Father for countless ages, and learned their lessons well, and he had been no dull scholar. Finally Lucifer openly rebelled against the Father and the Son and six other mighty ones who stood faithful with them and declared, ''I will have it my way." I saw the faithful ones gather around the Father and the Son, and Lucifer's workers gathered around him, when one of the notable ones, who was called Michael, arose and said, 'We will decide the contest' It seemed that a platform was extended into space,. upon which we could operate, by what power I could not tell. We who were faithful to the Father and the Son, had a white star upon us, and the others chose a red star, about one third of the males and females would not accept of either star, but withdrew from the conflict, the females taking the males by the arm, said, "Come, let us not take part with either side. Let us retire-" (When they were cast out after the manner of spiritual warfare,) they had no power to return. When they were all cleared from the platform and Satan and his followers were all cast down, their female companions wept, and we all wept. "

Interesting that before communism was invented, Mosiah accurately described the symbol (red star) of that hateful, usurping doctrine that is permeating and destroying the very fabric of our society - which secret combination will be the downfall of our nation in a few short years.

Here is more on the red star of socialism/communism - which is the devil's forced and coercive "sharing" counterfeit to the Law of Consecration - which will be the Millennial Law which will be in effect when the Messiah establishes his theocratic government on the earth CLICK ON THIS LINK.

May our Lord come quickly and take the trash to the curb.....

Usually I do not directly just dump people to another place without saying something, but this is exactly how I feel. I find little that I disagree with this man on. If the Savior were here, there would be little different in what He were to say and what Denver is saying. How do I know this? Because he says the same stuff that I have read in 3 Nephi and other places......

We rarely hear that kind of preaching - gentle admonitions and stern warnings...

Mary Magdalene has really gotten a bad rap - first in the early beliefs and writings of the Catholic Church and then perpetuated by many of my teachers as I was growing up. I really could not believe her to be a lady of questionable character to be the case - knowing how highly regarded she was of our Lord. I completely understand repentance and all - but the whole prostitute thing was really a stretch and I think it was a potshot at her by a male-dominated hierarchy attempting to consolidate power and squash the concept of Jesus being married so that they could buy off on the whole contorted unmarried/celibate clergy thing.... because I have a good feeling that Mary was one of the wives of Jesus - and was quite a remarkable woman on order with Eve, Eliza R Snow, etc.... I would much rather go that route than take the lower road and potentially slander the wife of Jesus - that would take some serious back-pedaling....

The following Wikipedia link seems to set the record straight on the matter and I endorse it: CLICK ON LINK HERE

Let me know what your thoughts are - don't be shy; I love feedback and more insights on this kind of thing.

I work with some of the best people ever. Some of them just flat make me laugh my head off. One of my favorite episodes was a few days ago. A friend of mine is over-weight - probably from the stress of her job and a whole host of other issues including irritating Mormons....

We were talking about her impending gastric surgery and I asked her if there were any calculated odds of not surviving with the various kinds of surgery she had contemplated. And then, knowing how, in the past, she railed on how stupid people are that believe in God, I asked her if she was in good with her Maker in case something went horribly wrong during surgery. WRONG THING TO SAY!

Man, did I catch a tirade. She started laying into people in general who believe in God being the equivalent to believing in the tooth fairy and a whole diatribe that just had me rolling. Because - I really do - and I quite enjoy the taste of purple kool-aid - and thanks for pointing that out.... The more I laughed, the more she got red in the face and the more she got spun up. She talked about how she lives in Mormon hell and how she can't stand them of all people - all the while I was just howling. She apparently bought a 2 acre parcel in the middle of a Mormon enclave - papa Mormon bought 20 acres years ago, 'spawned' 9 children and then subdivided giving each kid around 2 acres. She apparently walked into the hornet's nest when she signed for the two acres smack in the middle and has paid for it ever since. She apparently gets invites to go to church and cookies and such from her well-meaning neighbors - which just enrages her even more. To make matters worse, one of her daughters apparently converted. Which then sent her into another tirade which got me to join in with her tirades about such stupid, backward people. When she realized that I was having way to much fun ripping apart the Mormon faith with all their quirks, she suddenly stops, jaw drops and she goes, "What? Are you one of them?". I was just howling by now as she was back-pedaling. She really does like me - so she had really stepped in it. It is one of those things that made me glad I woke up that day; I had so much fun playing along.

When she was done back pedaling I told her that I have proof that God lives - the night our kid died I received an incontrovertible witness; and she actually seemed to listen (and I fantasize about her receiving a life changing witness much as Paul did and seeing her bloom in her eternal potential). The harder they are, the sweeter the conversion and the testimony to those around them who saw the before and after pics.

What a blessing the knowledge of God's plan is to me. It helps me look on my fellow beings (who are bitter at God for whatever reason) with love and to succor their needs just a little more than had I not had that witness where I might struggle somewhat in the face of their arguments that there is no God. I KNOW HE LIVES - and loves ALL of his creations with a boundless love. What a wonderful plan he has for us - even for His most bitter of detractors and opponents who have gained a body and the possibility to live in His presence again if they so choose it. May we all live for that privilege is my prayer in Jesus name.

Here is an account of a contemporary and rather dramatic occurrence recounted at the April 1954 General Conference of the Mormon Church that could be attributed to the Three Nephites.

“A short time ago, when a committee was sent there [to Israel] by President Truman, they were told by Chaim Weizmann, the first president of Israel, that it was their belief in a mystical force that would return the Jews to the land of Israel, that had kept them alive.

In the Jewish Hope, of September 1950, was an article by Arthur U. Michelson. I will not take time to read it, but he tells of a visit he made to Jerusalem, when he heard the experience of the Jewish army. They had only one cannon, and were facing the Arabs with their well-trained and equipped army, and so when they used this cannon, they moved it from place to place so the enemy would think they had many, and every time the cannon was fired, they would beat tin cans in order to make a lot of noise so that the enemy would think they had many cannons. I want to read what he said about what happened when the armies of Israel were about to give up:

“One of the officials has told me how much the Jews had to suffer. They had hardly anything with which to resist the heavy attacks of the Arabs who were well organized and equipped with the latest weapons. Besides, they had neither food nor water, because all their supplies were cut off.

“At this critical moment, God showed them that he was on their side, for he performed one of the greatest miracles that ever happened. The Arabs suddenly threw down their arms and surrendered. When their delegation appeared with the white flag, they asked, ‘Where are the three men and where are all the troops we saw?’ The Jews told them that they did not know anything of the three men, for this group was their entire force. The Arabs said that they saw three persons, with long beards and flowing white robes who warned them not to fight any longer, otherwise they would all be killed. They became so frightened that they decided to give up. What an encouragement this was for the Jews to realize that God was fighting for them.

“And then he told about another case when one man with a white robe and a long beard appeared, and they all saw him, and they gave up their arms. Now I do not know, but the Lord said that he would do something for the Jews in the latter days, and when he permitted the Three Nephites to tarry upon this land, he said:

“And behold they will be among the Gentiles, and the Gentiles shall know them not. They will also be among the Jews, and the Jews shall know them not. 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. (3 Ne. 28:27-29.)” (Elder Legrand Richards, Conference Report, April 1954, Afternoon Meeting, p.55-56)

We may add the words of Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the Mormon Church today, so said,

“These three Nephites continue in their translated state today, just as when they went throughout the lands of Nephi. At one point Mormon was about to reveal their names to his latter-day readers, but he was forbidden by the Lord from doing so. Nevertheless, these three ministered to Mormon and Moroni, and they are yet ministering to Jew, Gentile, and the scattered tribes of Israel, even all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people. (Jeffrey R. Holland, Christ and the New Covenant: The Messianic Message of the Book of Mormon, p.307)



Dear Gramps,

Is what I have heard so many times true that in the last days that Salt Lake City will become a great and abominable city, and that blood will flow down the gutters? If so where is this found?

GS, from Utah

Dear GS,

Salt Lake City was spoken of as a wicked city as early at 1865. Heber C. Kimball, in the Journal of Discourses, Vol.11, p.82 – p.83, had this to say on the subject-

I do not say but that you are just as good men and women in this place as in any other place in the mountains; yea, I admit that the people are better in the country towns than in Great Salt Lake City, for the froth and scum of hell seem to concentrate there, and those who live in the City have to come in contact with it; and with persons who mingle with robbers, and liars, and thieves, and with whores and whore-masters, etc. Such wicked men will also introduce themselves into Davis County, and among all the settlements throughout these mountains; but where the people are truly righteous and just, wicked men can do them no harm; were the people all righteous who profess to be Latter-day Saints, they would constantly be on their watch against the encroachment of a wicked power. The wicked and corrupt who have settled in our community are taking a course to lead away those who are willing to be led away from the truth–those who have turned away from God; and it will be for our good, as a community, if such persons will leave and never again return to our Territory, unless they can do so with a determination to serve God and keep his commandments. I love those who love God; they are more precious to me than gold, and silver, or possessions.

This excerpt by Joseph F. Smith in 1870,

Instead of raising themselves to the standard of the Gospel, they are content to descend to the level of the wicked and corrupt. Many of the Elders of Israel who have responsibilities resting upon them, with which they will find they cannot trifle with impunity, are taking this course all the time. What wonder, then, that the Spirit of the Lord is grieved? What wonder that the Latter-day Saints need to be preached to continually? It is no wonder to me when I contemplate the condition of the people of these valleys, and especially Salt Lake City, Ogden, and our cities contiguous to the railways (Journal of Discourses, Vol.13, p.339 – p.340).

Here are the words of J. Golden Kimball, in a conference address in 1930,quoting the words of his father spoken in 1868,

I claim not to be a prophet, but I am a son of a prophet, and I expect to give you evidence-whether you question the truth of it or not-that shall be left with you-that Heber C. Kimball was a prophet of God. President Brigham Young on more than one occasion said: ‘Heber is my prophet, and I love to hear him prophesy.’ In May, 1868-that is sixty-two years ago–he said: ‘After a while the gentiles will gather in Salt Lake City by the thousands, and this will be among the wicked cities of the world.”



REVELATION 12:7 Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back,
8 but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world ─ he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. (ESV)

From Josephus' 1st-century history, we know that the time of this heavenly battle was the spring of 66 CE. The battle where Satan was defeated by Michael took place at this time (about 40 years from the time Yeshua began his earthly ministry in the fall of 26 CE). A portion of this spiritual battle was actually seen in the skies above Jerusalem, as Josephus records:

Also on certain days after the festival [Passover] there appeared a thing so marvelous as to be beyond belief, but that it was related by many that saw it in their own eyes. Before the setting of the sun there were seen chariots driven across the sky, and hosts of armed men setting themselves in order of battle, and surrounding the cities. (Wars of the Jews, 6.5.3)

This vision, which seems to have occurred during the second Passover in the month of Iyar in 66 CE, was a supernatural sign for the Jews to flee from Jerusalem. It had been prophesied by Yeshua just before his crucifixion:

MATTHEW 24:15 "So when you see standing in the holy place 'the abomination that causes desolation,' spoken of through the prophet Daniel ─ let the reader understand ─
16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.
17 Let no one on the roof of his house go down to take anything out of the house.
18 Let no one in the field go back to get his cloak.
19 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers!
20 Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath." (NIV)

What was the identity of this “abomination that causes desolation”? Many people have the mistaken idea that it will be the Antichrist seating himself in a rebuilt Jewish temple on the Temple Mount. However, the parallel passage in Luke’s Gospel gives us the true understanding of this desolating abomination:

LUKE 21:20 "When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near." (NIV)

When this sign of heavenly armies was seen in the skies over Jerusalem, the messianic church in Jerusalem fled to Pella and subsequently was spared when the Romans besieged Jerusalem and eventually destroyed it and the Temple 3½ years later in 70 CE.

Josephus’ account of this heavenly battle is not the only historical mention we have of this incident. About 115 CE, the Roman historian Tacitus described this same supernatural event:

In the sky appeared a vision of armies in conflict, of glittering armor. A sudden lightning flash from the clouds lit up the Temple. The doors of the holy place abruptly opened, a superhuman voice was heard to declare that the gods were leaving it, and in the same instant came the rushing tumult of their departure. Few people placed a sinister interpretation upon this. The majority were convinced that the ancient scriptures of their priests alluded to the present as the very time when the Orient would triumph and from Judaea would go forth men destined to rule the world. (Histories, 5.13)

The early church historian Eusebius of Caesarea also wrote about this heavenly fight around 325 CE:

For before the setting of the sun chariots and armed troops were seen throughout the whole region in mid-air, wheeling through the clouds and encircling the cities. (Ecclesiastical History, 3.8)


Well, not to sound too alarmist here, but if you have a cash reserve and are watching inflation eat away at it and you are watching food prices begin to rise out of control, you will know that what I have been saying for years now is beginning to be in full effect.

I have said there would be an economic collapse followed by a 40% drop in housing values, the dollar's value sinking and hyper-inflation setting in until rioting and mass discontent has taken hold generally as a fallen (spoiled) people is pushed well out of their comfort zone. Oil prices will rise until you are not able to stand it any more.

Civil war comes next followed by "peace keeping" troops on our soil which brings about the beginning of the real woes for our good Christian friends. Many will lose their heads to our Chinese foes. After a year of hell on earth, there will be a massive disaster that will be well beyond our ability to fully comprehend which will suddenly cause the foreign troops to dissipate - but not before the US loses well over 70% of her population in the purge orchestrated (allowed to happen)by an angry God.

From that point forward, things will begin to get better as we begin the 220 year grind towards full millennial glory and rebuilding and restoration that will need to take place in order to have true peace on our world. There are alot of steps I have left out - but the most important thing short term is to have food and plenty of it. I am going down to drop at least $2000 into more wheat at the local food pantry. I am not kidding around here - we are riding into the howling winds of the perfect storm..... May God help all those who are helping themselves and their families do what is right!


This is the most comprehensive site I have seen showing the possibilities of the location of the Temple in Jerusalem:

ENJOY!!.....and does anyone read Hebrew?

Heber C. Kimball said....“Will this land be a land of milk and honey? Yes. Missouri is cracked up to be the greatest honey country that there is on the earth; but it will not be many years before they cannot raise a spoonful in that land, nor in Illinois, nor in any other land where they fight against God. Mildew shall come upon their honey, their bees, and their crops; and famine and desolation shall come upon the nation like a whirlwind.” (Journal of Discourses, Vol.5, p.94, Heber C. Kimball, July 26, 1857)

George Albert Smith (1870–1951)
Eighth President of the Church

“How on the face of the earth could a man enjoy his religion when he had been told by the Lord how to prepare for a day of famine, when instead of doing so he had fooled away that which would have sustained him and his family” (Deseret News, Mar. 4, 1868, 26).


Joseph Fielding Smith (1876–1972) Tenth President of the Church

“[The pioneers] were taught by their leaders to produce, as far as possible, all that they consumed, and to be frugal and not wasteful of their substance. This is still excellent counsel” (“The Pioneer Spirit,” Improvement Era, July 1970, 3).

Ezra Taft Benson (1899–1994) Thirteenth President of the Church

“The revelation to store food may be as essential to our temporal salvation today as boarding the ark was to the people in the days of Noah” (“Prepare Ye,” Ensign, Jan. 1974, 69).

President Spencer W. Kimball always said... "DO IT NOW"!


Prophecies of America
President Wilford Woodruff spoke on America, if America would not repent. He stated....

"I warn future historians to give credence to my history; for my testimony is true, and the truth of its record will be manifest in the world to come. All the words of the Lord will be fulfilled upon the nations, which are written in his book. The American nation will be broken in pieces like a potter's vessel, and will be cast down to hell if it does not repent-and this, because of murders, whoredoms, wickedness, and all manner of abominations, for the Lord has spoken it".
(Matthias F. Cowley, Wilford Woodruff, History of His Life and Labors, pg 500)

President Brigham Young said....

"The Lord would open the earth & swallow up such cities as New York, Boston, Philadelphia and other great cities of the nations and the sea would heave itself beyond its bounds and famines would spread not only over this continent and the Saints will close their eyes upon the scene and their hearts will be fill with pain".
(Ibid. page 251)

The Prophet Joseph Smith....

"Even this nation will be on the verge of crumbling to pieces and tumbling to the ground and when the Constitution is on the brink of ruin this people will be the staff upon which the nation shall lean and they shall bear the Constitution away from the very verge of destruction"
(Joseph Smith Papers, LDS Church Historical Archives, Box 1, March 10th, 1844)

President Herber C. Kimball....

"We will yet save the Constitution of the United States. We will do it, as the Lord liveth, and we will save this nation, every one of them the will be saved. Brother Brigham Young and Brother Joseph Smith stand at our head, and will do that thing, as the Lord liveth. Yes, we, as their children, with our children to assist us, will do it. We have got the power, and so have they, and will bear the kingdom off victoriously to every nation that is upon God's footstool; and I know it".
(Heber C. Kimball, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 5, September 6, 1856, pg. 216)
