UNEATEN DONUTS

Powerful lesson here.  I could envision the difficulty of this.  I once did 100 push-ups to impress two girls that I knew.  The brunette I really liked later was my first kiss.  She joined the Church a year later and her husband is now Bishop about 30 years after her conversion.

But I digress.  I do not know if this is true - but you will have a better sense of how it must have felt to be the Savior (in a very small way).  When we repent, we take advantage of that wonderful gift that we were given.  If we do not, we suffer even as he suffered:



There was a boy by the name of Steve who was
attending school in Utah.In this school Seminary classes are held during
school hours. Brother Christianson taught Seminary at this particular school. He had an open-door policy and would take in any student that had been thrown out of another class as long as they would abide by his rules. Steve had been kicked out of his sixth period and no other teacher wanted him, so he went into
Brother Christianson's Seminary class.

Steve was told that he could not be late, so
he arrived just seconds before the bell rang and he would sit in the very back of the room. He would also be the first to leave after the class was over.

One day, Brother Christianson asked Steve to stay after class so he could talk with him. After class, Bro. Christianson pulled Steve aside and said, "You think you're pretty tough, don't you?"

Steve's answer was, "Yeah, I do."

Then Brother Christianson asked, "How many push-ups can you do?"

Steve said, "I do about 200 every night."

"200? That's pretty good, Steve," Brother
Christianson said. "Do you think you could do 300?"

Steve replied, "I don't know... I've never done 300 at a time."

"Do you think you could?" Again asked Brother
Christianson.

"Well, I can try," said Steve.

"Can you do 300 in sets of 10? I need you to
do 300 in sets of ten for this to work. Can you do
it? I need you to tell me you can do it," Brother
Christianson said. Steve said, "Well... I think I
can... yeah, I can do it."

Brother Christianson said, "Good! I need you
to do this on Friday."

Friday came and Steve got to class early and sat in
the front of the room. When class started, Brother
Christianson pulled out a big box of donuts.
Now these weren't the normal kinds of donuts,
they were the extra fancy BIG kind, with cream
centers and frosting swirls. Everyone was pretty excited - it was Friday, the last class of the day, and they were going to get an early start on the weekend.

Bro. Christianson went to the first girl in the
first row and asked, "Cynthia, do you want a donut?"

Cynthia said, "Yes."

Bro. Christianson then turned to Steve and asked, "Steve, would you do ten push-ups so that Cynthia can have a donut?"

Steve said, "Sure," and jumped down from his desk to do a quick ten. Then Steve again sat in his desk.

Bro. Christianson put a donut on Cynthia's desk.

Bro. Christianson then went to Joe, the next person, and asked, "Joe do you want a donut?"

Joe said, "Yes." Bro. Christianson asked, "Steve
would you do ten push-ups so Joe can have a donut?" Steve did ten push-ups, Joe got a donut.

And so it went, down the first aisle, Steve did ten
pushups for every person before they got their
donut.

And down the second aisle, till Bro. Christianson came to Scott.

Scott was captain of the football team and center of the basketball team. He was very popular and never
lacking for female companionship. When Bro.
Christianson asked, "Scott do you want a donut?"

Scott's reply was, "Well, can I do my own pushups?"

Bro. Christianson said, "No, Steve has to do them."

Then Scott said, "Well, I don't want one then."

Bro. Christianson then turned to Steve and asked, "Steve, would you do ten pushups so Scott can have a donut he doesn't want?"

Steve started to do ten pushups. Scott said, "HEY!
I said I didn't want one!"

Bro. Christianson said, "Look, this is my classroom, my class, my desks, and my donuts. Just leave it on the desk if you don't want it." And he put a donut on Scott's desk.

Now by this time, Steve had begun to slow down a little. He just stayed on the floor between sets because it took too much effort to be getting up and down. You could start to see a little perspiration coming out around his brow. Bro. Christianson started down the third row. Now the students were beginning to get a little angry.

Bro. Christianson asked Jenny, "Jenny, do you want a donut?"

Jenny said, "No."

Then Bro. Christianson asked Steve, "Steve,would you do ten pushups so Jenny can have a donut that she doesn't want?" Steve did ten, Jenny got a donut.

By now, the students were beginning to say "No" and there were all these uneaten donuts on the desks. Steve was also having to really put forth a lot of effort to get these pushups done for each donut. There began to be a small pool of sweat on the floor beneath his face, his arms and brow were beginning to get
red because of the physical effort involved.

Bro. Christianson asked Robert to watch Steve to make sure he did ten pushups in a set because he couldn't bear to watch all of Steve's work for all of those uneaten donuts. So Robert began to watch Steve closely. Bro. Christianson started down the fourth row.

During his class, however, some students had
wandered in and sat along the heaters along the sides of the room. When Bro. Christianson realized this; he did a quick count and saw 34 students in the room. He started to worry if Steve would be able to make it.

Bro. Christianson went on to the next person and the next and the next. Near the end of that row, Steve was really having a rough time. He was taking a lot more time to complete each set.

Steve asked Bro. Christianson, "Do I have to make my nose touch on each one?"

Bro. Christianson thought for a moment, "Well,
they're your pushups. You can do them any way that you want."

And Bro. Christianson went on.A few moments later, Jason came to the room and was
about to come in when all the students yelled, "NO! Don't come in! Stay out!"

Jason didn't know what was going on. Steve picked up his head and said, "No, let him come."

Bro. Christianson said, "You realize that if Jason comes in you will have to do ten pushups for him."

Steve said, "Yes, let him come in."

Bro. Christianson said, "Okay, I'll let you get
Jason's out of the way right now. Jason, do you
want a donut?"

"Yes."

"Steve, will you do ten pushups so that Jason
can have a donut?" Steve did ten pushups very slowly and with great effort. Jason, bewildered, was handed a donut and sat down.

Bro. Christianson finished the fourth row, then
started on those seated on the heaters. Steve's
arms were now shaking with each pushup in a struggle to lift himself against the force of gravity. Sweat was dropping off of his face and, by this time, there was not a dry eye in the room.

The very last two girls in the room were
cheerleaders and very popular. Bro. Christianson went to Linda, the second to last, and asked, "Linda, do you want a doughnut?

Linda said, very sadly, "No, thank you."

Bro. Christianson asked Steve, "Steve, would you do ten pushups so that Linda can have a donut she doesn't want?"

Grunting from the effort, Steve did ten very slow
pushups for Linda. Then Bro. Christianson turned to the last girl, Susan. "Susan, do you want a donut?"

Susan, with tears flowing down her face, asked,
"Bro. Christianson , can I help him?"

Bro. Christianson, with tears of his own, said, "No, he has to do it alone, Steve, would you do ten pushups so Susan can have a donut?"

As Steve very slowly finished his last pushup, with the understanding that he had accomplished all that was required of him, having done 350 pushups, his arms buckled beneath him and he fell to the floor.

Brother Christianson turned to the room and
said. "And so it was, that our Savior, Jesus Christ, plead to the Father, "Into thy hands I commend my spirit." With the understanding that He had done everything that was required of Him, he collapsed on the cross and died. And like some of those in this room, many of us leave the gift on the desk, uneaten.

RUSSIAN TROOPS ON US SOIL - TRAINING IN THE USA

This is the third time I have heard of this.  One of my buddies who lives in N. Idaho have had several reports from his associates of identical encounters.

Folks, something is up - that the average person is not privy to:

Steve Quayle Alert

DAVE,
My son-in-law is a wild land firefighter based in Chelan, WA. As I’m sure you are aware the fires in Washington are some of the worst in the nation right now. I spoke with him last night after he came off of a 20 day shift. He has been battling the Wolverine fire which lies in a very remote part of the county only accessible by Boat or Helicopter. This is the same remote area that the U.S. Army Airborne division has been using to practice helicopter mountain training. (https://www.wenatcheeworld.com/news/2015/jul/06/army-considers-helicopter-training-in-ncw/) While battling the fire and establishing fie lines around Holden Village, he and his crew came upon two Blackhawk helicopters on the ground in a remote part of the forest. He said that soldiers drew their weapons on his US Forest service fire crew and told them they couldn’t be in the area because it was a restricted Military zone. He said all of the soldiers were in US Army uniforms, but two of them appeared to be Russian (wearing US Army uniforms) and in his opinion the Russian soldiers seemed to be in charge. My son-in-law challenged the soldiers stating they were there to save structures threatened by the fire and they would continue to do their job, at which point all the rifles in the company pointed at him. At this point he said he actually felt threatened for his life and he and his crew retreated going around the helicopter crew. This led to a discussion as to whether or not the US Army had been involved in possibly starting the fires which now burn approximately 135,000 acres.

RUSSIANS IN SYRIA? GULP!

Now we are in all the same operational areas in Ukraine and now Syria.  Syriasly...... this stuff sure gives me an elevated pucker factor!:

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4696268,00.html

Russia is doing what I would do - protect my foreign interests.  That is their only permanent base outside of Russia.

Now, I would not want to upset anyone here with logic, but this is our best kept secret:
If the US created ISIS, and Russia is fighting ISIS.

This is a proxy war between US/Israel and Russia.
 It's a secret.......  Shhhhhhh!!!

A NATURAL OR MAN-MADE DISASTER

A few thoughts here on the man-made portion of Cleon Skousen's prophetic wording.  I have been raving about the Shahab III missile tipped with a nuclear missile for at least four years now.

This is a higher-level video by The Blaze that brings all of the info into one spot now:

https://www.facebook.com/theblaze/videos/963963553640985/

This is a MUST-SEE video.  I am certain, this attack mode will be part of our future.  Russia and China are too smart to attack directly, so they will use the vassal state mode to attack and weaken and then go in for mop-up.  If you are blinded by an attack, it is much less likely you will be able to see to retaliate.  This is a future scenario I believe will come about.

TEMPLE FACTS FROM A FB FRIEND AND BLOG READER

1) Temple facts: *There are 148 operating temples for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. There are 12 temples currently under construction, and 13 temples that have been announced. *Designing a temple can take up to 2 years. *Temples are constructed with only the finest of materials. *There is no smoking, drinking of alcohol, or listening to loud music at the temple's construction site. *You do not have to be a member of the church (LDS) to work on the construction of the temple. *During the first 150 years of the church, from 1830's-1980 there were only 21 operating temples.
2) Make your home a temple.
3) You're never lost when you can see the temple.
4) Are we turning our homes toward the temple?
5) As we touch the temple the temple will touch us.
6) Prepare yourself for the temple.
7) Keep your home focused on the temple.
8) The temple is clean and orderly, and you can feel the Spirit. Can you feel the Spirit when you walk into the door of your home, and is your home orderly and clean?
9) Like the temple, do you have a set of standards for your home of what is acceptable and what is not?
10) Our attitude defines our sacrifice.
11) Make and keep sacred covenants.
12) Be true to the faith.

THE OPENING OF THE SIXTH SEAL?

I am putting this on the blog so that it is captured.  Not sure how to put this in context, as it is far above my pay grade.  It would take a lot more research to verify what is being talked about.

Any real serious history buffs out there?

The events mentioned by John as taking place at the opening of the sixth seal literally took place shortly after 1000 AD. AD 1060 Great Earthquake according to Anglo Saxon chronicles and very further it reads:
A.D. 1117. All this year remained the King Henry, in Normandy, on account of the hostility of the King of France and his other neighbours. And in the summer came the King of France and the Earl of Flanders with him with an army into Normandy. And having stayed therein one night, they returned again in the morning without fighting. But Normandy was very much afflicted both by the exactions and by the armies which the King Henry collected against them. This nation also was severely oppressed through the same means, namely, through manifold exactions. This year also, in the night of the calends of December, were immoderate storms with thunder, and lightning, and rain, and hail. And in the night of the third day before the ides of December was the moon, during a long time of the night, as if covered with blood, and afterwards eclipsed. Also in the night of the seventeenth day before the calends of January, was the heaven seen very red, as if it were burning. And on the octave of St. John the Evangelist was the great earthquake in Lombardy; from the shock of which many minsters, and towers, and houses fell, and did much harm to men. This was a very blighted year in corn, through the rains that scarcely ceased for nearly all the year. And the Abbot Gilbert of Westminster died on the eighth day before the ides of December; and Faritz, Abbot of Abingdon, on the seventh day before the calends of March. And in this same year...
Later it reads:
A.D. 1135. In this year went the King Henry over sea at the Lammas; and the next day, as he lay asleep on ship, the day darkened over all lands, and the sun was all as it were a three night old moon, and the stars about him at midday. Men were very much astonished and terrified, and said that a great event should come hereafter. So it did; for that same year was the king dead, the next day after St. Andrew's mass-day, in Normandy. Then was there soon tribulation in the land; for every man that might, soon robbed another. Then his sons and his friends took his body, and brought it to England, and buried it at Reading.

JFK - RAILS ON SECRET COMBINATIONS

I would that he had quit trying to chase all those women using his "lower brain" and had read the Book of Mormon.  He could have shut down the CIA and some of the shenanigans they did in the 1960's.  I would love to see if this speech was given before or after the Bay of Pigs invasion.  There was a massive power struggle there - and it spilled over into our involvement in Vietnam and so much else.  One day, it will all be shut down and destroyed - and there will be peace on earth once again.

Soon - very soon:

 
President Benson around the same time came out in warning against this world-wide conspiracy.  They were able to see it when it was gaining full steam after WWII.  When we beat Germany in the war, the USA lost it - because we imported their hellish practices over here and adopted it into our system.  National Socialism is winning - the Constitution is just about dead.
 
 
President Eisenhower also warned us.
 

ARE WE JUST A FEW MONTHS AWAY FROM THE BEAR LAYING THE PAW ON THE LION?

According to Cleon Skousen, we are going to have a natural or man-made disaster knock the USA out and then Russia takes the reins and runs with it over Europe, then into Turkey, Syria and finally into Jerusalem.  This is the winding up scene that Joseph Smith talked about.

I submit that it is a 13 month war that ends on 16 Oct, 2016 which means that it must start around Sept 13th, 2015.  Maybe something else causes the economic crash than instability in the markets?  Maybe this man-made disaster happens more oddly than we think.....in unexpected ways.

I plan on being in my safe place on these dates. 

Here is what got me spun up:
George Reynolds (Member of the First Council of the Seventy) wrote:
"Speaking of Russia brings to mind a prophecy which is accredited to the Prophet Joseph Smith, concerning this country. Elder Jesse W. Fox, Sen., received the narration from Father Taylor, the father of the late President John Taylor. The old gentleman said that at one time the Prophet Joseph was in his house conversing about the battle of Water-loo, in which Father Taylor had taken part. Suddenly the Prophet turned and said,
“ Father Taylor, you will live to see, though I will not, greater battles than that of Water-loo. The United States will go to war with Mexico, and thus gain an increase of Territory. The slave question will cause a division between the North and the South, and in these wars greater battles than Waterloo will occur. But,” he continued, with emphasis,“when the great bear (Russia) lays her paw on the lion (England) the winding up scene is not far distant.”
These words were uttered before there was any prospect of war with Mexico, and such a thing as division in the United States was never contemplated. Yet these fierce struggles came, and though Joseph himself was slain before they occurred, Father Taylor
lived to witness some of the world’s most remarkable battles. The struggle between the bear and the lion has not yet happened, but as surely as Joseph the Prophet ever predicted such an event so surely will it not fail of its fulfillment." (The Juvenile Instructor, March 15, 1890, volume 25, issue No. 6, page 4)

On a related note, several years ago, England moved most all of her heavy armor (which comprised nearly 6,000 pieces to a depot in Germany.  The US has moved 50,000 troops and much heavy armor into the Ukraine region for that proxy war.  Are we being told about it?  Nope - most all this info has come back-channel.  We are being set up. 

Damascus has or is becoming a ruinous heap.  In that (or this day), Ephraim shall lose her fortress.  Ephraim comprises both England and the United States.  There is still enough blood of Israel left in the islands to make that statement apply.  Folks, we are either on the cusp of amazing things, or I am a raving lunatic that is horribly off.  Time is short - and time will tell.

PLURAL MARRIAGE AND THE ABRAHAMIC TEST

I am always interested in peoples' responses to a difficult subject.  When a commenter suggested that I like to stir the poop, he is partially right.  When the subject of polygamy comes up, I am not so worried about whether a male or female expresses inability to live it or even conceive of it, I am more concerned about the attitude about it.  I understand ALL of the arguments against it and even for it (the best ammo used by females against it usually is:  What would you do in a flip scenario, where there were many guys and one woman.....  My answer is always the same:  If it is the will of the Lord, it needs to be done (not my will, but thine).  I believe that those who say, "I will NEVER participate in that practice!!", will be given experiences that will shape and mold them into another attitude - or they simply will NOT be a part of that scenario.  The same thing applies to food and all of the "lesser" necessities of life.  When things are ordered in importance, I think the initial revolt against something would be:  polygamy, water, food, hygiene.  It has been my experience that people would most likely give up food or water to help another, but not their spouses.  Interesting human response, methinks.....  Time is running out in order to qualify ourselves as we submit our wills. 

I do not judge anyone.  In the beginning, I used to talk with bravado how I would shoot to kill anyone who molested my food storage.  I since have moderated my tone to only doing that if their intent was to use it selfishly or to support a cause I did not agree with (foreign troops).  Now, the transformation has been that I would most likely starve if it meant that other well-meaning people would starve in front of me, while I had no lack.  This is the best argument for the callout/sifting that I can find.  Those who have been disobedient and rebellious will starve and die from the plagues and lack of food, while those who are honest in heart and who WILL follow the Lord's anointed in having the food storage in place, and then in following the counsel of the Brethren in leaving their homes and things that they have worshiped (cars, clothes, sports, shopping, electronics, their own ease and luxury and beauty [running water/showers]) in order to disappear into an unknown scenario.  Many of the best people I know, in spite of it not raining, have "prepared their arks".  Most of the rest, have disregarded that counsel and will find themselves in a situation here shortly, where their "day of grace" is past and the hour that they were given to perform their labors has slipped into the realm of "what might have beens".

This was the essence of an Abrahamic test, when things have been required in the past.  Will we simply do what the Lord wants?  When we have fully surrendered ourselves to the Lord, then we simply do His will - and none else.  Our selfishness begins to melt away and we have acquired the perfect alignment of our wills to that of a Celestial world where we can be entrusted with ALL things and ALL power.  When we have passed the tests put before simply will do nothing of our own accord, but that it aligns with Father's desires for us.  When Spencer spoke of the transformation (physical and spiritual) that they went to as they journeyed to Cardston, he was describing the process that the people went through as they surrendered their will to the will of Father and began to submit their love and shed their wills to God's ways over their own.  This is the essence of Consecration and the key to how we will make it into the Millennial scenario seamlessly.

My personal "journey to Cardston" began quite some time ago before we really knew about Cardston.  Actually, I had read the Sols Cuardisto prophecy about two years prior and I had told my wife that, if we settled in Kalispell, we would have to join the Saints in Cardston on foot one day.  In other words, that we would not have to make the journey with the rest of the Saints in that perfecting role of leaving it all and exercising our faith on a journey into the unknown.  In doing so, it would seem that the "learning" of the journey would have been short-circuited.  Indeed, it was not.  God has given me an Abrahamic test in spades with the health problems my wife has experienced after the loss of our son.  These tests have pushed me to my limits of understanding and compassion and patience.   This series of tests have molded me into a person who is more willing to submit to God's will and be ready for what is coming.

What I am saying, is that we can choose to accept God's will and our burden will be lighter and the yoke more easy to bear.  Or, we can fight against God and His will and take the harder, lower road to the same destination.  We also, by our choices, attitudes and actions, can choose to simply NOT be a part of the good portion of what is coming; living in the felicity of the association of the best that have walked the earth.  We have the power to choose NOW.  The time is short - the day is almost past for us to repent of our sullen attitudes and to rise up.  A change of heart can happen in an instant.  I know because I have had that mighty change of heart many times come over me in a quiet moment of pondering when the Spirit simply touched me and I was born a new man.

I have also lived with those who have chosen to be defiant of God - and the consequence both mentally and emotionally (and even physically) have exacted a terrible toll on them.  God will not be mocked.  When we fight against God's will (what our spirits know to be true), it exacts a terrible toll on the spirit/body and we suffer.  For example, people who elect to have an abortion for selfish reasons - who go against the finer whisperings of their spirits, and of the whisperings of God's will - have been shown to have a markedly higher increase in mental and emotional instability.  When we are aligned with God's will, our spirit is at peace - because we are first and foremost spiritual beings; secondly physical beings.  When we are out of sync (out of resonance) with God's will, our spiritual beings suffer, but being subjected to the flesh, our physical wills override that of our spirit - and the spirit suffers.  The cognitive dissonance destroys our well-being over time and this is often the root of many of the mental/emotional maladies that people experience in this life.  As people become hardened, this is the process of the physical presence over-riding the will of our sensitive inner beings.  Once it has been completely overcome, the spiritual death is complete and satan seals the person his.  I am not entirely sure how this process works, but it might well be the analgous to the opposite case of receiving the Second Comforter.  God creates/builds/inspires and the d'evil imitates/tears down/destroys.

THE CANNERIES ARE RUNNING FULL-ON

Hallelujah!  People may be finally waking up.  I would love to know what is going on up in the Cardston area at the cannery there......

Thank you Jonathan Cahn and so many others who have higher profiles and have rung the warning bell or lit the lamp in the steeple......  It takes cahunas to sound like a broken record and put your reputation on the line.   When you sound the bell and things do not happen as quickly as you expected, people tend to harden to you and you become somewhat of a pariah.  Sometimes, they just simply hate you for it and you can actually take physical damage for it.  I usually split before it comes to fisticuffs.....  You have to be fast - Samuel the Lamanite style.  Speaking of which - I found a pic in the book showing a typical wall in the North American Heartland model that he might have been on (cement covering wooden stockade walls).  Not quite as impressive as the artist's depiction of the stone wall in the Book of Mormon:

http://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&ved=0CAcQjRxqFQoTCLz5mpKqyscCFUWiiAodT8QJtw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.josephknew.com%2Fcategory%2Fhopewell-culture%2F&ei=hpHfVbyeD8XEogTPiKe4Cw&psig=AFQjCNH9uRNvO2IIsPSpRpruIuhNEkcrRg&ust=1440801455835745  (picture halfway down the page)

Back on track; I have a lead at work that is finally softening up a little on me and my message.  He has been naysaying for years (no man knows the future kind of mentality).

I guess some enemies will turn into friends when they find out that I was not doing this for my own gratification (although, having woken someone up and then saying "I told you so", is kind of fun).  I only do this because I was commanded to in the Seattle Temple.  I was told to move eastward (get off the coast to higher ground) and to warn others of impending financial and geological disasters, per D&C 88.  Once you have been warned, warn your neighbor.

I am still baffled why we are not hearing more from SLC.  I know they know - the delivery of 150,000 tents was just made to a certain camp by Provo.  I get that it is a world-wide church and what applies to Utah, does not apply to Paraguay necessarily - but it still is unnerving to me.

I just have to have faith and trust. 

Here is what got me spun up from a commenter to this blog:
The Ogden cannery is out of many items including prepacked rice, red wheat, carrots, onions, and potato flakes. The Layton cannery is out of many of the same items. They told me to come back a few days later and they would be restocked. When I returned there was a note on the white board saying that those items were back ordered with the supplier and they were still unavailable. These canneries are not equipped to handle many customers at a time. If you need food, now is a good time to get it done. A volunteer told me that business has tripled since last year.

A sudden uptick in activity at the cannery may well be the VIX of the Church.....  A prelude to impending badness.

THE VEXING VIXEN OF THE VIX

I went to lunch with my "rainman" friend Howard.  He is an aerospace guy with an MBA and really ought to be running a division of this company.  He sees the big picture and can wrap his mind around a lot of data and come up with an encompassing solution.

I asked him about what is going on in the markets after telling him a little about the schemitah phenom.  He said that he knew the correction was coming because of what was going on with the VIX (the insurance that brokers buy to protect their portfolios from damaging loss).  If you seen activity on this indicator, you know something big is coming.  Here is a chart of the latest:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VIX#/media/File:VIX.png

It shows a REALLY nice spike in 1987 on that schemitah year.  Again, it showed big (lots of volatility) in the 2001 schemitah year and again in 2008, there was a nice spike.

Here is what the markets did in 2001 and 2008.  Imagine the plunge that is coming in 2015.....
That plunge I like to call the "Schemitah hitting the fan".....  Can I TM that one?:


SUM TING WONG IN MOSCOW, RUSSIA

Uh, oh......  There may be something to this.  Report from boots on the ground:

Are Russia and the OPEC nations creating plans for the end of the Petro-dollar this week?
The lineup of officials in Moscow tomorrow:King of Jordan, King of KSA, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Egypt’s President, Iranian Vice-President

#Breaking: Saudi King Salman will visit Russia on August 25. He’ll attend the MAKS air show along with Putin. An arms deal may be on its way

Significant detail: Looks like Saudi &Jordanian Kings as well as Iranian & Syrian officials will all be in Moscow at the same time next week

And then imagine that Egypt’s Sisi is visiting Moscow on August 26-27. Russia is up to something – Yuri Barman

This week marks the annual MAKS air show that is held each year in Moscow and surrounding regions, and there is a very interesting lineup of attendees that are coming to this year’s event. Among them are several leaders from the Middle East and from OPEC nations, and it will bring together several parties that have the power to direct energy and military policies going forward for their countries.

But what is of strategic importance, and what could possibly end up being a monumental sea change in the global energy spectrum, is that this week’s event could bring about the plans for an end of the petro-dollar, and a rise of oil and natural gas being sold primarily in Yuan, or even perhaps gold.

THE LAST "TRUMP" TO SOUND?

Not sure exactly how this whole thing will play out, but I have to agree with this guy.  I miss the days of Ronald Reagan.  He was not perfect, but he had his heart in the right spot:

In a dream I was shown visions and spoke to by God.

He showed me that Donald Trump represents everything that is wrong with the world. He is so full of pride, boastful, greedy, selfish, arrogance, wealth, lust, riches, the material world, desires of the flesh.

He wants your nation to be better for all the wrong reasons, so he can boast about how great he made the country...

Not once does he talk about GOD or Jesus in his speeches. He may talk about the Bible being his favorite book but he doesn't practice it! He talks about how only HE can make the nation better BECAUSE HE IS A FALSE GOD. HE REPRESENTS SATAN.

You people are constantly praising him for being a hero of sorts..but he is just one of many hypocrites.

The guy represents everything that is not GOD. God is allowing him to speak before your nation is destroyed & gutted completely he told me in a dream.

GOD is allowing Donald to speak to the masses to get your hopes up, before he dashes all your hopes completely... I hope you all learn a great lesson through your coming tribulations, mass anarchy & chaos in September. You did it to yourselves.


Proverbs 11:2
When pride comes, then comes disgrace.

Proverbs 16:5
Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord; be assured, he will not go unpunished.

Proverbs 29:23
One's pride will bring him low, but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor.

Proverbs 16:18
Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.

Galatians 6:3
For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.

Jeremiah 9:23
Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches.

1 John 2:16
For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world.

CACHE VALLEY IS CACHING FOOD.....

Just got this report on FB from boots on the ground:
I just left the Logan Cannery. They said, that this week, as soon as the trucks come in, they sell out of food. Miraculously, and unexpectedly today, they received some personal water filter bottles and replacement filters. If you want some, please drive there now. Entire wards were previously buying them, and cleaned them out. They are now saying if you want any, you will need to personally go in and pick them up. Please hurry if you want the filters. They said the manufacture can't keep up, so if and when they get more, is unknown.

I have several family members there - many who simply are asleep.  I am hoping for the best.  I think people are finally being jolted awake with the stock market stuff, etc.

RIPE FOR PLURAL MARRIAGE?

I have been very vocal on this blog that I am a fan of plural marriage.  Not that I have the ability or desire to live it (my goal is to live simply and without complications - and that form of living seems like it would be fraught with complications of so many kinds) - but that I believe that our past supports it full implementation and that it is the highest form of consecration (sadly, especially if you are female).   It would take the faith of the individuals to the extreme level in order to pull it off.  Also, charity and so many other points.  For a while, we had my MIL living in our home as she is aging.  In the end, my wife - probably the most patient of people - could not get along with her (a highly dysfunctional woman) and it was part of the reason we literally bolted for Cardston last fall.  I had to save the sanity of my wife when things finally came to a head.  So, I have experienced the difficulty of trying to pull off the intricacies of female relationships (given that my MIL is one of of the more selfish people I have ever known - and not given to living a terrestrial or higher lifestyle).  I know that, with the best of circumstances, two good people will have difficulty getting along (and that does not even factor in the complexities of intimacy with all of those loaded issues).

So, on the surface, I say NO THANKS!!  But, I also know that it is a sifting institution where all people can be refined at the highest rate possible; the greatest bang for the spiritual buck, so to speak.  It was something that gave Emma Smith fits - and many others among the spouses of the earlies.  Most would/will fail at it - simply because it is difficult in the extreme.  I also know that Isaiah 4:1 (click link) is coming in the future - when most men are wiped out due to war/famine/pestilence.  There will be few left to fill the role of providing posterity.  So, I expect it to rise once again as a practice.  I am looking forward to it even though I may not be among those elect who are called to live it.  I simply may not be spiritually of a level where I could do it.  I may not be alive for that.

What it does signify for me (and possibly my posterity who do live in "those days"), is that it means that the dead wood has been purged and that the millennium is in full effect.  It means that Consecration (in it's highest form) is being lived and that good has crushed evil for nearly 1,000 years.  It means that Christ and His people have gotten the victory.  No more corruption.  No more lies.  Just peaceful living in a near-perfect world.  So, yes.  I do support the practice - because I know what it means for the world.

Here are some stats that kind of shocked me.  I had no idea the ratios were as bad as they are already - even before the purging.  I know they are terrible down in Brazil in that 4 out of 5 of those sisters that I served with have had to marry outside the Church in order to have children.  Most have experienced divorce, as well, probably due to the stress of the asymmetrical relationship.  Marriage is difficult enough without having to deal with radical differences of value sets.  So, yes.  I do see plural marriage as a solution to the problem we have.  Just when and where and how remains to be seen:

JESUS CHRIST AS THE GREAT HIGH PRIEST

Saving for later:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=T6h2KhLtFAg

It looks awesome!

GETTING THE STILTS KNOCKED OUT FROM UNDER US

This market instability combined with famine/fires is sounding awful familiar.  Koyle was a prophetic man:
The purpose of the mine was to build store bins and store up wheat and other foods like Joseph of old who was sold into Egypt. He saw the rains would come in the fifth year, and they would be forced to spare a little wheat for seed but would be sorely pressed to raise enough to eat during the fifth year and save enough for seed for the sixth year. The rains continued to come, the crops grew, and at the harvest time of the sixth year they would have enough food to carry on. He was told by the messenger that there would be a great crash in the land before the period of famine began. This crash would be brought about by prices going up, which condition was illustrated to him as being like a person on high stilts. When prices became extremely high, something happened in the land like knocking the stilts from under the person and down came everything. Businesses closed down, labor was thrown out of work, people were hungry, and great tribulations were in the land. He saw that the best place to live and to work would be at the mine. Those who worked there would be the best off. He was told by the messenger that the Church program to care for the poor would all be used up during the first and second years of famine, that the mine would bring relief during the third year and would carry on the relief from the third year on.
Koyle gave progress reports of things that would happen inside of the mine and about other things. He gave probably one of these reports each month or so at the thursday night meetings. This is what kept up a great amount of interest for the miners to look forward to.
Bishop Koyle's Prophecies and revelations are abundant with details of the famines of the last days. Koyle also described this food shortage that had been shown to him in dreams. Grain would grow up as though it would produce a fine crop--but something caused it to shrivel up and become a valueless harvest. Famine would occur all over the world--not only because of crop failures, but because of the troubles and chaos caused by the shutdown of manufacturing and transportation.
 I am keeping an eye on things over on that hill (electronically).  If things heat up there, it will be just one more thing pointing to the times we are in.

STAYING IN THE MAINSTREAM OF THE CHURCH (AND KINGDOM OF GOD)

Got this off FB from the group, Among LDS Friends (ALF), I think.  An awesome group of striving Saints.

Truly, the way to enter in is very narrow and few there be that find it:
We've all probably heard the statement by Elder Bruce R. McConkie,
“The proper course for all of us is to stay in the mainstream of the Church."
I think people confuse "MAINSTREAM of the Church" with "MAJORITY of the Church".
Elder McConkie went on to add:
"Let me remind you to stay in the course chartered by the Church. It is the Lord’s Church, and he will not permit it to be led astray. If we take the counsel that comes from the prophets and seers, we will pursue the course that is pleasing to the Lord."
So, the MAJORITY of the Church who DON'T have food stored feel justified because they think MAINSTREAM means MAJORITY: "Since the MAJORITY aren't worried about it I must be in the MAINSTREAM of the Church."
But according to Elder McConkie, to be in the MAINSTREAM, means to TAKE the COUNSEL that comes from the prophets and SEERS. So in reality, the MINORITY of the church are the ones in the MAINSTREAM of the Church.

ENDOWMENT CHANGES INSPIRED

Sometimes people struggle with change.  Sometimes, it rocks their world.

I just ask the Lord to verify that any change is of Him - and then I just roll on.  Sometimes, I question things - but NEVER make a snap judgment and hold a final opinion for sometimes decades until the Lord shows the "proof in the pudding" (after things set up).

When there was a watershed change in the Church as Joseph Smith was martyred, along with the "heir apparent", Hyrum Smith (Joseph Smith, Sr was already dead at that point), people were at a massive crossroads in their religious observance.  There were many vying for the "prize" including Emma (and her son, Joseph), Sydney Rigdon, Joseph Strang and so many others.  It was a crisis which left so many wandering the years.  To this day, we still have proof of the fallout of this singular event on June 27, 1844.  It has taken well over 150 years for the proof to emerge of that pudding experiment.

Many followed the RLDS path - and it has been an unmitigated disaster for many there.  Many followed Brigham west into a frightening uncertainty - and it appears that they won.  In the smugness and luxury of retrospect, we are able to sit back and make the call as to which direction it was supposed to go - simply armed with the data based on outcomes.  Surely, we have all the proof we need.

In 1890, we had yet another watershed moment.  Many splinters - many varied outcomes.  One clear choice as to which one was right.

On a much lesser scale, we had another watershed moment in 1978 with the proofs being the explosion of the gospel in Africa and, on a personal note, the amazing life of my mission president, Helvecio Martins and his family.

On an even lesser note, there were minor changes made to the endowment made in 1989, some of which have caused people to stumble.  Again - we are either led by revelation by those who, possibly not seeing all the impacts of decisions, but who follow commands with exactness, are doing the will of the Lord.  I found this on FB as an answer to my prayer the previous night.  God works in mysterious ways to help His children who struggle (not me, someone I love):

This story was told by a friend of mine in our ward. He used to work for the Prophet and Quorum of the Twelve directly. He told this in a talk last week. It gave me some good food for thought...
He said that when the temple movie changed back in the late 80's (not the new changes in the past few years), they had to translate it into several different languages before it became available. He was responsible for the bulk of that project. He was given a list of languages that it was to be translated into. Each translation involved flying people from different countries to SLC, where they would be here for two weeks doing the work. The work could not be "outsourced," but had to be done in Salt Lake. The entire process was scheduled out for eighteen months. When he received the list, he noticed that there were several eastern bloc countries on it. He went to President Benson and told him that it would be impossible for him to get people from these countries to SLC. President Benson told him to keep moving forward on the schedule, and all would be well. So he put everything into motion. Shortly thereafter, the Berlin Wall fell, and the Soviet Union opened up, and one by one, countries began to declare their independence from the Soviet Union. The brother in our ward noticed that the countries breaking from the Soviet Union came in the precise order that they were scheduled on his temple language project. He began to predict (to his wife only) which one would fall next. He was always right.
He was able to schedule people from each country to come to SLC to do the temple translation in the exact order that the prophet had given him.
This man bore testimony of the divine calling of the prophet. He said (this was his sense only) that he felt that the prophet was following the directive of the Father in this project to exactness, but did not necessarily know how it was to be accomplished, only that it would be, because the Lord would prepare a way. It reminded me of Nephi, who went forward, being led by the Spirit, not knowing exactly how the plates would be gotten.
Anyway, perhaps the prophet knows what is coming, but does not know exactly the manner it will manifest. Like President Benson, he is following the Lord's directions with exactness. Perhaps those directions include just one step at a time. Perhaps events will unfold that will make sense in hindsight to him and to all of us. I don't know. I know that he is a seer and a revelator. If it is important for him to know all, I have no doubt that he will or has. I just thought this was a cool story, and wanted to share it.

THE 144K

On a pre-amble to this, and speaking of 4's and 1's and K's, sounds like the markets are getting a routing......  A good sound thrashing.  They estimate that a couple of trillion just drained from it.

The One Hundred and Forty-four Thousand

It is apparent that just before the beginning of the millennial reign of Christ upon the earth for one thousand years, as seen in vision by the Apostle John, one hundred and forty-four thousand high priests, ordained unto "the holy order of God to administer the gospel," will be selected from among those who have been sealed unto the twelve tribes of Israel, "ordained out of every nation, kindred, tongue and people" by the instrumentation of the angels, to whom is given power over the nations of the earth to bring as many as will come to the Church of the Firstborn.

Twelve thousand high priests from each of the twelve tribes of Israel will be the last to go among the children of men to glean out the righteous as the sixth thousand years of earth-life existence shall draw to a close. fn


(Alvin R. Dyer, Who Am I? [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1966], 450.)


Question: "The Jehovah's Witnesses teach that the one hundred and forty-four thousand mentioned in the Book of Revelation are the only ones to receive resurrection. What is the correct interpretation?"

Answer: The one hundred and forty-four thousand mentioned in Revelation 7:4-8 represent special groups from the tribes of Israel, twelve thousand from each tribe, who will be caught up to meet Christ at his coming.

In Section 77 of the Doctrine and Covenants we read:

Q. What are we to understand by sealing the one hundred and forty-four thousand, out of all the tribes of Israel—twelve thousand out of every tribe?

A. We are to understand that those who are sealed are high priests, ordained unto the holy order of God, to administer the everlasting gospel; for they are they who are ordained out of every nation, kindred, tongue, and people, by the angels to whom is given power over the nations of the earth, to bring as many as will come to the church of the Firstborn. (D. & C. 77:11.)

Further, we read from Section 133:

Hearken and hear, O ye inhabitants of the earth. Listen, ye elders of my church together, and hear the voice of the Lord; for he calleth upon all men, and he commandeth all men everywhere to repent.

For behold, the Lord God hath sent forth the angel crying through the midst of heaven, saying: Prepare ye the way of the Lord, and make his paths straight, for the hour of his coming is nigh—

When the Lamb shall stand upon Mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand, having his Father's name written on their foreheads.

Wherefore, prepare ye for the coming of the Bridegroom; go ye out to meet him. (D. & C. 133:16-19.)

"GREAT MULTITUDES WHICH NO MAN CAN NUMBER"

Now if you will read all of Chapter 7 in Revelation you will learn that in addition to these one hundred and forty-four thousand there was a great multitude out of all nations which no man could number who likewise received salvation, and they, too, "stood before the throne of the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands."


(Joseph Fielding Smith, Answers to Gospel Questions, 5 vols. [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1957-1966], 3: 186.)

This certainly is a great honor to be one of the 144 thousand who are specially called by the power of "the angels to whom is given power over the nations of the earth," to bring souls unto Christ. John the Apostle, had the great desire to bring souls to Christ. The three Nephite Disciples likewise sought this great honor and it was granted to them. It is one of the noblest desires that a man can have. It will be a wonderful blessing to those who are called in this great group. This 144 thousand will not be the only ones who worship the Father and the Son, for after speaking of the twelve thousand out of each of the tribes, John records: "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying: Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God." (Ch. 7:9-11.)
(Joseph Fielding Smith, Church History and Modern Revelation, 4 vols. [Salt Lake City: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1946-1949], 2: 71 - 72.)

And I looked and lo, a lamb stood on Mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand, having his father's name written on their foreheads.' Their father's name; bless me. That is God. Well done for Mormonism—144,000 Gods among the tribes of Israel and two living Gods and the Holy Ghost for this world. Such knowledge is too wonderful for men, unless they possess the spirit of Gods."—President Taylor, quoted by Roberts in The Mormon Doctrine of Deity, page 253.
(B. H. Roberts, Defense of the Faith and the Saints, 2 vols. [Salt Lake City: Deseret News, 1907], 2: 270.)

The One Hundred and Forty-Four Thousand

I remarked that the hundred and forty-four thousand sealed are the priests who should be anointed to administer in the daily sacrifice. (HC 5:326.)


(Joseph Smith, Discourses of the Prophet Joseph Smith, compiled by Alma P. Burton [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1977], 268.)

Additional Seventies to Be Called As Needed

If the first Seventy are all employed, and there is a call for more laborers, it will be the duty of the seven presidents of the first Seventy to call and ordain other seventy and send them forth to labor in the vineyard, until, if needs be, they set apart seven times seventy, and even until there are one hundred and forty-four thousand thus set apart for the ministry


(Joseph Smith, Discourses of the Prophet Joseph Smith, compiled by Alma P. Burton [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1977], 297.)

1. A lamb stood on the mount Sion] Which Mount Zion? All of the references to Mount Zion which talk of the Second Coming and related latter-day events appear to have in mind the new Mount Zion in Jackson County, Missouri. Thus we read: "Prepare ye the way of the Lord, and make his paths straight, for the hour of his coming is nigh—When the Lamb shall stand upon Mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand, having his Father's name written on their foreheads."

Rev 14 1Then comes this explanatory comment which shows the Lord will appear many places at his coming: "For behold, he shall stand upon the mount of Olivet, and upon the mighty ocean, even the great deep, and upon the islands of the sea, and upon the land of Zion." And then, using some language borrowed from Rev. 14:2, the revelation continues: "And he shall utter his voice out of Zion, and he shall speak from Jerusalem, and his voice shall be heard among all people; And it shall be a voice as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder, which shall break down the mountains, and the valleys shall not be found." (D. & C. 133:17-22.)

Rev 14 1It seems clear that the Lord and his exalted associates shall stand in glory upon the American Mount Zion, although it may well be that in his numerous other appearances, including that on the Mount of Olivet, which is itself but a few stones' throw from old Mount Zion, he shall also be accompanied by the 144,000 high priests, "for they follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth." (Verse 4.)

Rev 14 1An hundred forty and four thousand] See Rev. 7:2-8.

Rev 14 1Having his Father's name written in their foreheads] See Rev. 3:7-13.


(Bruce R. McConkie, Doctrinal New Testament Commentary, 3 vols. [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1965-1973], 3: 526.)

Followers of the Lamb.—John of Patmos saw a Lamb standing upon the Mount Zion, "and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads" (Rev. 14:1). And he heard a voice from heaven saying, "These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth." Then they follow him in the work of salvation, not only in this world, but also in the spirit world, where he ministered while his body was lying in the tomb.

Who are these 144,000? They are not the whole house of Israel, which numbers millions; but they are "of all the tribes of the children of Israel," twelve thousand of every tribe. The Prophet Joseph says: They "are high priests, ordained unto the holy order of God, to administer the Everlasting Gospel; for they are they who are ordained out of every nation, kindred, tongue, and people, by the angels to whom is given power over the nations of the earth, to bring as many as will come to the Church of the First Born" (D&C 77:11). They are not the entire army of the Lord, but might well be termed the flower of that army, the body-guard of the great Captain of Salvation.


(Orson F. Whitney, Gospel Themes [Salt Lake City: n.p., 1914], 150.)

Sunday 4.—I attended prayer-meeting with the quorum in the assembly room, and made some remarks respecting the hundred and forty-four thousand mentioned by John the Revelator, showing that the selection of persons to form that number had already commenced.
(Joseph Smith, History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 7 vols., introduction and notes by B. H. Roberts [Salt Lake City: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1932-1951], 6: 196.)

"The foregoing are my sentiments, which I express from the bottom of my heart; and I would state further, that if we expect to be united with the hundred and forty-four thousand of which John speaks; who are clothed in white raiment, and who were gathered together from every nation, kindred, people and tongue, and who had washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb (therefore were they next the throne and serve their Maker day and night); we must pass through the same ordeal they did.

"These people who were so honored of God, and of the Redeemer, and the heavenly hosts, were those who had come up through much tribulation; and we are further told in late revelations which God has given us through the Prophet Joseph, that 'After much tribulation cometh the blessing.'


(B. H. Roberts, Life of John Taylor Salt Lake City: George Q. Cannon & Sons, 1892], 392 - 393.)

One Hundred and Forty-Four Thousand

See CHURCH OF THE FIRSTBORN, EXALTATION, MILLENNIUM, SEALED IN FOREHEAD, SECOND COMING OF CHRIST, ZION. At his Second Coming, "the Lamb shall stand upon Mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand, having his Father's name written on their foreheads." (D. & C. 133:18; Rev. 14:1-5.) These 144,000 are Gods, as the name on their foreheads specifies; their callings and elections have been made sure; they are exalted personages; they are "redeemed from among men, ... And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God." (Rev. 14:4-5.) They have attained perfection.

These brethren, 12,000 from each of the tribes of Israel — excepting for some unspecified reason the tribe of Dan (Rev. 7:2-8) — "are high priests, ordained unto the holy order of God, to administer the everlasting gospel; for they are they who are ordained out of every nation, kindred, tongue, and people, by the angels to whom is given power over the nations of the earth, to bring as many as will come to the church of the Firstborn." (D. & C. 77:9-11.) They are part of "a great multitude, which no man could number — all of whom shall have membership in the Church of the Firstborn and therefore be exalted beings. (Rev. 7:9-17 Heb. 12:22-24.)


(Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, 2d ed. [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1966], 546.)

6. At the Second Coming, "the Lamb shall stand upon Mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand, having his Father's name written on their foreheads." (D. & C. 133:18; Rev. 14:1-5.) The Mount Zion spoken of is identified by latter-day revelation as the New Jerusalem to be built in Jackson County, Missouri. (D. & C. 84:1-4.)
(Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, 2d ed. [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1966], 855.)

In the first verse of the 14th chapter of Revelation, we are told that John saw one hundred and forty-four thousand persons standing with the Lamb upon Mount Zion, and they had a peculiar name written in their foreheads—even their Father's name, him whom we call, in our language, God. Then there will be written upon the foreheads of these hundred and forty-four thousand this insignia, the Father's name, and they will be gods; and they will associate with him as do the Father and his Only Begotten, that is, his only son begotten in the flesh.
(B. H. Roberts, The Mormon Doctrine of Deity [Salt Lake City: Deseret News, 1903], 276.)

And John tells us that "they sung as it were a new song before the throne, . . . and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth" (Revelation 14:3)
(Hugh Nibley, Approaching Zion, edited by Don E. Norton [Salt Lake City and Provo: Deseret Book Co., Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies, 1989], 565 - 566.)

"What are we to understand by sealing the one hundred and forty-four thousand?"

"It is not only necessary that you should be baptized for your dead, but you will have to go through all the ordinances for them, the same as you have gone through to save yourselves. There will be 144,000 saviors on Mount Zion, and with them an innumerable host that no man can number." (Joseph Smith, HC 6:365.)

"The ten tribes will have to come forth and come to this land, to be crowned with glory in the midst of Zion by the hands of the servants of God, even the Children of Ephraim; and twelve thousand High Priests will be elected from each of these ten tribes, as well as from the scattered tribes, and sealed in their foreheads, and will be ordained and receive power to gather out of all nations, kindreds, tongues and people as many as will come unto the general assemblage of the Church of the first-born. Will not that be a great work? Imagine one hundred and forty-four thousand High Priests going forth among the nations, and gathering out as many as will come to the Church of the first-born. All that will be done, probably, in the morning of the seventh thousand years. The work is of great magnitude, Latter-day Saints, and we are living almost upon the eve of it." (Orson Pratt, JD 16:325-26.)

"This certainly is a great honor to be one of the 144 thousand who are especially called by the power of 'the angels to whom is given power over the nations of the earth,' to bring souls unto Christ. John the Apostle had the great desire to bring souls to Christ. [Sec. 7.] The three Nephite Disciples likewise sought this great honor and it was granted to them. [3 Nephi 28.] It is one of the noblest desires that a man can have. It will be a wonderful blessing to those who are called in this great group." (Joseph Fielding Smith, CHMR 2:71-72.)

FAMINE - ONE OF THE MANY REASONS CHINA WILL COME HERE

China is a huge importer of our grain.

She will come here after we have been weakened due to civil war and unrest and will be part of the cleanse.  One of the objectives will be to secure a food storage for her people (and to recoup some of the debt we owe the nation).

Here is the article that re-ignited my thought process along these lines:

9/23 - SOMETHING COMING DOWN THE PIKE??

Twenty three has always been my favorite number.  I was born on 9/23 at 10:23am.

I try not to buy into the hype of the stuff in this youtube, but the occultic freaks always leave their intentions as calling cards in most everything they do.

We will see.  About four weeks to go on this thing and then the proof will be in the pudding.  I have to say, that dream of that Lamanitish gal really had me doing a double take.  I really feel like she saw something:

KIM DUNG ILL - TO ATTACK SOUTH KOREA TOMORROW?

I am not saying this is it, but years ago, I mentioned in a blog piece that one of the ways that the US would be brought to her knees would be to draw the troops overseas (by this kind of action and what is going on over in Syria and Ukraine), then lay a trap which would cause us not to be able to get them home (such as EMP) and then there would be nothing at home to defend the homeland from external attack.  Then strike.  You watch - this is the plan.

It will be sad to see it happen.  It is sad to see this country operate on bad principle as we purposefully are driven into insurmountable debt.  It is all part of a plan to bring this nation to it's knees.  Sad day:

HITLARY EXPOSED - A WICCAN - YEP, FREAK SHOW

This evil whore is the most damnable person (female) that ever walked the halls of the whitehouse.

People, we have evil in high places.  It is upheld by other people in DC - the whole power structure is corrupt.  If you or I, the average person in the USA, could access the beltway insider gossip and really get the truth of what is going on there, we would throw up.  It is THAT bad.

Here is a little info from some murders from the last time that one was in a place of power:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=0BCrt1yIc1s

We NEED an intervention to take the trash to the curb.  Pray for them?  I think not - unless it is that they are speedily sent to their demonic demise where they will feel comfortable.

Part of the reason that the people fought against Zion back in Enoch's day, and will yet do it again in our day once we are purged and cleansed, is because they simply were raw evil and despised and seethed with hatred over those who lived on Zion's holy mount.

The persecution will yet come again from this same source of seething hatred.  Buckle up!


Here is a little more about Hillary flying out to California to go to witch church.  Folks - this is not being made up.  It is all documentable:

ABORTION BUTCHERY - KEEPING ABORTED BABIES ALIVE IN ORDER TO HARVEST HEARTS

When I say that I HATE certain portions of the medical industry - this is precisely what I am talking about:

http://www.lifenews.com/2015/08/18/planned-parenthood-is-likely-keeping-some-aborted-babies-alive-until-their-hearts-are-cut-out/

This is so beyond the pale - I, for once, am speechless.

Here is what I wrote on FB in response to this article:
my wife and I lost our third child of 5 to SIDS as a 9 month old. For weeks afterwards, we would go out just to get out and be normal (without crying our eyeballs out) and we would ask people in malls if we could hold their babies. It was emotionally crushing and devastating to us. The thought of bringing harm in any way to a baby is so beyond the pale to us - it just makes me shake with what we have been reading in the news lately. We made it out to an abortion clinic for a protest. The vileness and hatred spewed at us was itself beyond belief. We live in a WICKED world. Jesus, please come quickly!!
All constructs that are not Godly (consecration, true love for fellow man) will be destroyed in what is coming.  It will be total and complete.

Any institution that seeks to get above one's brother (banking, cancer industry, wall street, slum lords, slavery of any kind, governments that lust after power and want to subjugate rights such as arms and free speech, the "free press", religions built up for power or money or anything that seeks to build fame or power) will all be brought to naught.  Crushed - destroyed - ground into powder.  People are waking up - and having done so, will spank you hard.

You have been put on notice - your time is here.  Prepare for your demise - you are going to be taken to the curb with the rest of the trash!!

A HIGH PRIEST OF A COVEN - ENERGY HEALING

WARNING:  SHOCKING MATERIAL FOLLOWS.  NOT SUITABLE FOR MANY VIEWERS

Folks, I know a lot of people who are into energy healing (I am talking members of the Church) - and I get a little freaked out when doing a little research on how to pick the New Age BS out that is all around us, including a high priest of a coven (wears top hat, face painted, black clothes, etc) and the typical "priestess" who wears the black pointy hat with the brim.

I kind of thought these people were just jokers messing around - but they are for realz:

     http://covenoftheblessedlady.com/clergy.htm

This gathering of freaks apparently in the midwest.  Sheesh - and people wonder why the place will be swept clean.....  Those "coexist" bumper stickers show a good pulse of how much of that kind of thing is in an area.  Let me tell you about the bumpers in Seattle.....

Apparently, the web master of this place is also in their "priesthood" is into energy healing.  The more I see, the more I have to say this stuff should be avoided at all costs......

If you are a good LDS lady into this - please consider that you might be deceived, or in the process of being deceived about energy healing.  Many that I have bumped into talk of being buffeted by the adversary.  Just a hint here - you might be inviting that kind of thing into your life precisely because you are simply playing with fire.  When it comes to that kind of thing, I usually run the other way - simply because, like tromping thru cow poop in boots, once in it, you may never fully get the stink off your boots and will remain contaminated.

Rant off - over and out.

Actually, while I am in the mire - let me show you what I found on FB that got me going down this bunny trail tonight.  It was shocking to say the least.  Abortions and cannibalism.

 http://www.lepantoinstitute.org/abortion/former-satanist-i-performed-satanic-rituals-inside-abortion-clinics/
We live in a constant stream of this garbage coming at us from seemingly innocuous or harmless sources such as Harry Potter, the vampire thing (don't even care to remember anything about it, other than it was written by an LDS lady from Arizona, so it must be good, right??) and even a Blondie video from the late 1970's, where a high priest of a coven is dressed in negative colors (a black face on a guy in a white tux with white top hat intead of a white face on a guy with a black tux and top hat) and next to where a goat is traipsing through the set.  All clear symbolism of the freak show.  If you do not believe me, watch this:

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=pHCdS7O248g#t=182

When will the bad info keep bubbling in from the sewer that we are living in.  We NEED and intervention NOW!  A little fire, water, that kind of thing - some cleansing pronto.

I still need to find a definitive statement of the Brethren coming out against energy healing.  I swear I remember something about it when it boiled over years ago.  I realize I am throwing many people under the bus with this article - but I think people can be gullible and need to be woken to the awful state of their situation.  Many (really good people) do not even realize where they are at - and need the shock factor to wake themselves up from their stupor.

THE WEST IS ON FIRE

We left on our five week east coast tour and basically saw few, if any, fires.

Coming back, it was a whole new story.  It seemed like every place we turned, it was on fire.

I think this just comes with the territory of living in the west with this drought that John Koyle talked of.  I think it will worsen into next year.  Bishop Koyle said the fifth year of the drought it would be particularly acute.

We will see how this all pans out:

http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/northwest/interactive-map-wildfires-in-the-u-s/

It is good to have an evacuation plan for a major wildfire should it ever strike close to home.  There are protection of homes, animals, etc that need to be considered.

TIMING AND THE DEATH OF OUR SON TO SIDS

I have been thinking about this lately and honestly, I cannot remember if I had documented all the freaky stuff that happened around the time of his death.

Back on my mission, I worked my tail off and was pondering/praying/reading my patriarchal blessing one time and the Lord affirmed to me that my mission sacrifice was accepted of Him.  I did not baptize thousands, but we worked hard and had amazing experiences down there.  Some of the fruit is so very sweet to me (and my companions).  When you have children or people you baptize turn their lives around or make a success of the chances they were given in life, it brings true and everlasting joy.  I am sure the kind that Father and our Elder Brother, Jesus enjoy continually in their stations.

I was given two promises or blessings as a result of my work in the mission.  One, that I would be able to see/visit every temple of the earth.  Being the guy that I am, I pictured wealth enough to visit every building as they were dedicated.  Sadly, the only one I purpose-spent money on to see dedicated was the Nauvoo Temple - the announcement of that one just simply thrilled me to the core, so we had to see it as soon as it was done.  The night I booked tix for the family to fly out there and discussed with my sweetie whether we would have to take our youngest son on our lap or book an extra ticket for the car seat, our child died.  After I returned to the home office to click the "go button" as my wife finished nursing him, I returned and put him down since my wife was exhausted and had dozed off.  He was gone about three hours later after we retired for the night.

The second thing I had - that I might not call a blessing - so much as I might call it a warning, was that I might not live to be an old man - that my work might be furthered on the other side of the veil before I had aged naturally.  That I might die early.  That troubled me a little and left enough of an impression on me that around the time that my wife and I were becoming emotionally intimate and sharing our deepest emotions/fears/hopes, etc as we prepared to become engaged and move towards marriage, I remember she had shared the tale of her abuse at the hands of her step-dad.  Around that time, I shared my impression that I might not live to be an old man.  Normally, that might not be such a big deal for many people, but she knew the struggle her mother had gone thru losing her biological father in Vietnam - which led (in part) to the abuse at the hands of her step-dad.  In talking about it, my wife was okay with the possibility of losing me - but that she would not re-marry due to the experience of her step-dad.  Therefore, her expectation was that (should something happen to me) she would live out a life of solitude if I were not there to help her raise the kids.  I believe she asked how old I thought I would be when it happened.  I did not give it much thought, but I believe I told her in my 30's or 40's.  When you are young/feeling invincible and in love, none of that stuff matters, right??

We married the end of our 23rd year.  I cannot remember how the conversation came up, but we talked about my impression again before I hit 30.  We are born 15 hours apart.  Same year - we are the same age.  I love when people see our IDs at the same time and make the connection.  Most cannot believe it.  This is significant because I was 16 or 17 and was madly in love with a girl in high school.  Her birthday is Sept 13th.  Mine is the 23rd of Sept (both interesting dates this year).  I knew that she, not being LDS and her parents against anything I believe because of my religion, would not have it.  I knew I had to give up the hope that she would join so we could be sealed - it would take anything short of a miracle for that to happen.  So, I continued on my path - but asked who it would be if not that one that first yanked my heart strings til I thought I would die without her (one who would qualify for the temple blessings) and was told to look for someone else also born in the month of September.  I guess I was kind of a serious 16 year old kid......  I knew I had search the one out - and I was always on the look out for September babes.  To the point that I would often ask girls within a short time of knowing them if they were September girls.  So, one year after I returned from my mission at BYU, I was out foraging for food at the womens' apartments on a Sunday afternoon with my engineering buddy and later best man.  He was an extrovert extraordinaire and seemed to know every kid on campus.  I was a little more reserved - but out for a good time and maybe some leftovers after a Sunday meal.  He introduced me to several girls at  this one apt near campus and the conversation came up over birthdays.  My best man and I were born on the same day of the same year and were born 70 miles apart.  One of those girls was born 3500 miles away, but only 15 hours apart from my birth time.  There was one other girl there with a Sept b-day, but I did not click with her like I did this cute blonde girl.  I was almost strictly exclusively a brunette guy prior to my mission and would only go out with blondes on courtesy dates, but had somehow gravitated towards blondes exclusively after my mission.  I fought it hard - but always struck out with the brunettes and seemed to hit it off with the blondes.....  Path of least resistance - and I had no experience to know whether blondes actually DID have more fun or not - simply did not play into the equation.....

A few weeks after our chance meeting, my wife to be asked me out to a girl ask guy formal and we went and had a great time.  I was on my mission when Saturday's Warrior came out, but I remember dancing in the box the SL Temple came in and talking about our birthdays again and saying something to the effect that we had both left the pre-existence at the same time and promised to meet up down here.  My wife to be was a big Saturday's Warrior fan and liked that idea a lot.  I finally watched it for the first time around 2008 and it is a favorite with my two youngest girls.  We snuggle up and sing the cheesy songs together while watching it.

So, fast forward to a conversation we had around our 30th birthday.  We went out for our usual alternating birthday date night and the topic of aging and death came up and my wife asked me about my statement again.  This time, I guess I was feeling like I really was going over the hill, so I took her seriously and told her I would ask the Lord and get back to her in a few weeks on the date that He had in mind for my demise.  Morbid, eh?  True story.  I prayed about and pondered on it and came back a few weeks later with "The middle of my 33rd year, about the age that Jesus was when he died."  It seemed kind of vague at the time - but that was the best that I could give her.  At that point, I was not too serious about life, had no blog, was mostly dead asleep to most things, but might have considered myself a run of the mill member of the Church with a TR and a steady calling.  At the time we had two kids.

Time moved along and we never thought about it or talked about it much more.  I had never had these inklings that turned into anything before - so mostly, I think my wife took it with a grain of salt (and so did I).  If I knew what I knew now, I would have kind of been on pins and needles.....over a strong prescience that it was my time to pass over.  How it would happen?  Was I ready to meet my Lord?  What would my family do without me?  Those kinds of things would have really started to eat away at me.  I am a worrier, by nature - even when I know it will be just fine.  I obsess over details leading up to something - but mostly enjoy the ride once there is nothing more that can be done and the "rocket is launched".

When we were 32, we had our third kid and bringing him home, as I hauled him thru the front door in his car seat, I had a feeling come over me that he was the best thing to cross our threshold.  His looks were always to wise and there was a spirit about him - the same kind you get when looking into the eyes of your Patriarch or a really good Stake President.  He had a countenance like no other and simply seemed like an adult stuck an a baby's body.  I truly bonded with, and loved, that kid!  When he was a few weeks old, I was called into the Elder's Quorum Presidency and set apart one evening.  After coming home, with the Spirit of the Lord and revelation still resting on me, I prophesied to my wife after walking in the door, that "something big is going to happen, its going to affect my employment (aerospace engineer), and it will happen in the next six months".  Those words exactly.  My wife asked, "What should we do about it?"  This time - I already knew the answer:  "We need to double our fast offerings and pay our tithing religiously (every single paycheck - not the end of the month or the quarter), and we will probably be okay".   Well six weeks later on 9/11, all hell broke loose in my company when the planes crashed and they cut our head count down from 106,000 to 54,000.  Anyone with less than 20 years with the company was on the chopping block and they started aggressively making cuts.  I felt doomed - I had been there four years and had just left my position in Flight Test to join another group that had already been making cuts of contract labor.  I was on the block for first cuts as the newbie.  I went into drastic mode and prepared to move to MT to build on our acreage there (previous article on prompting to move there - and then eventually to Cardston before a big EQ hit to break up the roads and cause chaos).  Yep - we had filled in that little detail back around '98 or '99 - but had ZERO context to put it in.  Just that, if we lived in Western Montana, that we would have to cross the Rockies to join the Saints in Cardston on foot (due to broken roads).

So, one night in November, I am at a HT visit with an inactive brother who works at SEATAC as a line mechanic.  He tells me that its not a matter of IF, Alaska has a crash, it is a matter of WHEN.  I couldn't believe it could be that bad.  Well, FFWD to Feb of 2002, driving home from work and hear a B_____ product has crashed off the coast of California due to failure of my system in Flight Controls.  I was freaked out the next couple of days - people were going out the door with pink slips and my friend and I in the group figured we had less than two weeks before the next round took us out of the picture.  Suddenly, I am being ushered into my manager's office because the FAA says there will be no one from that system leaving our company.  All were tasked with a complete analysis and re-design of the systems from top to bottom.  I have stories that would make your skin crawl - but we were saved.  I actually got a $5K raise that day and a engineering level increase because it was against the rules to keep any Level II engineers.  Here I was convinced I was getting the boot as I was being ushered into the manager's office - and then this.  Talk about SHOCK!

Being so distracted with all of the work shennanigans and everything else, I had completely forgotten about the approaching middle of my 33rd year and that the day of Easter was approaching.  Actually, I had no working idea of all of those festivals.  Heck, our kid played the baby Jesus the previous December in the Ward play and I was disconnected with any of that stuff at the time.  One thing I did have going in my favor was that a good brother in our ward asked me to take his weekly Saturday morning temple assignment as he was going to be away on company business for a month, or so.  I started in February and just kept going every week.  It helped my spirituality - at a time I would sorely need it.

So, about the middle of my 33rd year (191 days in), I awoke in the middle of the night, three nights after Easter Sunday and had a most profound dream wherein I recorded to the detail of what would happen in three distinct phases.  The first one a good-bye message from our son:  "Don't blame yourself.  It was my time to go.  It was supposed to happen this way."  The feeling that was there in our bedroom as I recorded this dream (three hours after they said he had passed) was beyond anything I have ever felt in this life, including the Temple.  That kind of love is only felt in the realms beyond this one - and I know why Joseph Smith said if we only knew how good it was over there, we would do whatever it took to get there and partake."  I testify that he was right.  For many weeks after our loss, the only thing that kept me here was knowing that I would not be able to partake of that love if agency were ever forced in the process of trying to get there.....

We all awoke late - he was the family alarm clock - I never set a clock while he was alive.  His cries always woke mom for the morning nursing and then we would play with him in our bed and then all get up and have breakfast together with Dad then going off to work.  Perfect contentment - shattered that morning.  Shock waves through our lives that we still struggle with to this day in the form of my wife's health and other things.  So affirming that God is in control and that our days are numbered no more, nor any less - yet so bloody destructive to our peace and earthly contentment.  I honestly thought that nothing could be closer to perfect than our lives at that time.  SUCH a struggle since then.  With the shock waves it sent out - I have said - and I mean every word of it - I would rather go through the pain of that five times over (than to deal with some of the effects it has had on my wife) and our family by virtue of that.  I am a fan of seeing others who have chosen (pre-mortally) other paths down which they travel and to suffer and to gain mortal experience and wisdom, and then thank the Lord that I had never been called (or had chosen) to go down such hard paths.  I have learned to NEVER complain.  Because - YEP - it can ALWAYS get worse.....

Well - what happened to my prediction that I would die - and not my son?  I got to experience - to a degree, what Father went through, I suppose.  Our little guy played the baby Jesus in the previous Ward Christmas party.  He died in the middle of my 33rd year on the EXACT day that Jesus died on 33AD - yep, I ran it back on a Jewish Feast calendar and it was spot on.

So why him and not me?  I cannot remember if I shared this on the blog, or not - but this has turned into the journal hour - so here we go.  About two weeks before his death, my dad, myself and our baby boy were all deathly sick with respiratory issues.  My dad had shingles on the linings of the lungs and had been to the emergency room three times to try and get relief.  I have seen step on a rusty nail and drive almost through his foot and he would just tough it out after patching it up.  My dad is old school tough.  I was always amazed at him as a kid.  He would just suck it up and keep on going.  To hear that he had admitted himself three times to the E-room kind of had me freaked out.  He has died three times and all three times was sent back by his g-pa who was the Stake Patriarch of the Cedar City Stake up until 1930 when he died from respiratory issues.  My dad's longest passing was about 10 mins due to a pulmonary embolism.  He was told to go back and marry and raise a family.  So, this Patriarch appeared to my dad in a dream, two weeks before our son died and said that he needed help on the other side directing affairs over there.  My dad said I was there, a fellow that looked about like I did when I was 25 - but a little taller and broader in the shoulder - and he was there.  My dad said I was first asked a series of questions about my life and what I still had to accomplish - I gave my answers and was asked to leave the room.  My father said he was asked similar questions, gave his answers and said that he was asked to leave the room.  The last one standing there, my dad said he assumed was my son (this story was related to our family as we were gathered at the burial site before we dedicated the grave). 

My wife was also given a premonition about two weeks before the death while she was pondering in the shower.  She said she felt there would be a death in the family and asked that it not be her husband (though she did not think of the middle of the 33rd year statement, at the time), then her thoughts focused on the oldest two children who are very tight even to this day and she asked that it not be one of them - they could not bear to be alone and then she focused on the baby.  Her next thought was, if it was going to be him, that it not be her fault (due to leaving him in the car on a hot day, car wreck due to her inattention or him choking on a lego, that sort of thing).  Of the almost 200 days he was with us, I may have put him down just a hand full of times.  That night was one of them due to her being so exhausted.  Usually, she just nursed him and unlatched him and put him into the crib.  He would sleep like a baby that way - but would wake up or not go down if he did not just have his tummy filled with milk - due to a cast/fixture he had to wear to fix a twisted ankle after he was born.  So, I got tapped for the "duty" - to keep my wife from having to blame herself.  I could have blamed myself or been hard on myself - but I was given the beauty of that dream to latch onto and bring peace to my soul on that matter.

Anyway - the short of it.  My wife got to choose that it not be me.  Sometimes, I maintain it was the wrong choice that she made - but the Lord honors agency more than we can imagine.  What we do DOES matter.  It is not just chance and coincidence.  EVERYTHING happens for a reason.  Much of it - just playing out agreements and covenants made in the pre-existence.  Much of what we have in life is also just dealing with consequences (good and bad), of our choices in the is life.

So, I guess this 777 thing kind of brought all of that back to my memory and I felt the need to record it.  And also to remember that, when this is all over whatever happens on the 13th of Sept (29th of Elul) and the 23rd of Sept and then for the next 13 months - that God is in control, first and foremost.  And, that it will happen as given.  I have missed some things like the timing of the nuke in Ogden (which WILL happen EXACTLY as I saw it - just not sure when) and the significance of Elenin, but these other things have restored my confidence of what I have seen and felt when it comes to the economic crash and the events afterwards (martial law, rioting. looting, rape, social collapse).  I have seen nothing of tent cities (but know for sure, they will come about - just as many have seen in their paths to preparation).

There is much that I cannot share - but know that I know that God lives and He has a plan for each one of us.  I have shared part of my journey with Him in hopes that it will inspire others to journey down their own special and unique paths towards Him and millennial bliss with loved ones.  May God bless all of us to this end in Jesus name, amen.
