Or worse, misrepresenting who you are and what you are about:

I happen to call that bearing false witness - and it happens to fall just below murder/adultery in my book.  Thank goodness for facts/data and reliable witnesses to refute the trash/trolls in life. 

And a rear-view mirror to put them in.


Cardston is as close as I will ever get to turning the clock back to "normal" values.  Hoping for the millennium.....:

All trash of the last 60 years gets taken to the curb and then to the incinerator.

I just noticed that the film was made in association with Washington State College where I was a Freshman about 30 years later.....  I had to room with a kid who liked to invite his "pass-around" girl over to the dorm room......  The number of nights I walked in on them and had to spend the night on the concrete floor of my other friend's room on the second floor.

Just disgusting.....  I heard what they (all the guys that she got passed around to) said about that girl behind her back.  She must have had no self-esteem.  It was pretty bad.


LOL - this is a butguster for me.  I have come home to excited kids and an electrical receptacle replacement job after something about like this.  Note that no kids were harmed in the making of the melted receptacle....:

Slim pickins when it comes to November.....


This development is just on the shores of the Dead Sea where large sink holes have opened up - and then are filling with fresh water (likely from freshwater springs pouring in from the higher terrain).   There is much green vegetation there, too.   There are fish there - this is exciting!

It has much more to come - there will be fresh water pouring in (likely after the EQ that will come when Christ sets His foot on the Mount of Olives) after troops that pour out of the north (Syria/Turkey/Russia - and the kings of the east; Iran/Iraq, China, etc) that include all nations on the face of the earth.  Could we be there?

So, this is just the beginning of it.  An actual smallish river will pour out of Jerusalem and into the Dead Sea (not just a few small springs) after the EQ opens up a channel that flows east into the valley of the Dead Sea.  My guess is that an aquifer will be breached - and the waters will flow at that time.  Of course, this will be symbolic of living waters (Jesus) healing the most toxic thing that exists on the earth (yes, there is hope for some  I have heard multiple, multiple stories of very large aquifers of billion year old water existing around Jerusalem and down by the Dead Sea (one is multiple trillions of gallons), that could likely dilute the salinity of the Dead Sea, if burst open by a large EQ.  This water has existed in these pockets since the foundation of the earth, and was not cast up during the flood in Noah's day.  They are finding similar unspoiled aquifers of this age all over the earth.  One was in that rock that Moses burst open with his staff - and that provided life-sustaining water to the Israelites in the deserts of Arabia.

I have a feeling that this water has amazing properties - similar to the stuff that flows out from under the temple in the New Jerusalem, etc.  The stuff that Spencer spoke of.

Here is the vid that got me fired up:

Also, I had to laugh at her comparison of the female body to Jerusalem.  I think she is spot on.....

When I first dug into the topography of Jerusalem (looking for some basis on how water could flow out of Temple Mount (Moriah), if it were the highest point in the area - which it actually is not...) and discovered that Jerusalem is actually surrounded by much higher terrain with Mt. Moriah being a little bump in the middle, I began referring to that city as the source of all life (being the place of the First Fruits of them that slept) and due to its similar geographic shape, called it the clitoris of mother earth......  Yikes - should have put a warning on this piece for content, I know.

Now that I have gone there, you may be wondering where I consider the sphincter of Mother Earth to be.  Probably following the Great Rift in a southerly direction, you would end up somewhere in Africa where the largest piece of fecal matter to date came from......  bummer's hometown.....  lol  Yep, that would be the a/C......  That big turd that we just cannot seem to flush....... until he has done his business of taking America into the cesspool.....

A close second would be DC or the UN General Assy building in NYC where most other turds seem to be residing or coming from, as of late.....

Also, final note in this tawdry post.....  and speaking of turds and flushing, is that I was astounded that the Jordan River is now basically just a sewage channel.  I had heard this before - but, yeah.....did not realize Jerusalem was dumping their flow into it.....   Gross!  No aliyah for me with the required bucket-list, ritual/symbolic baptism in the Jordan River without a white, hermetically-sealed wet-suit.....  Bleche!

I snatched this from a FB post.

Thanks Rhonda for help, helpin out the Wood Zone.....:

There has been a lot of prophecy fulfilled in my lifetime. It's a little easier to see what's past, but not always. One thing that has been a surprise is how often the fulfillment looks nothing like I imagined.
George Q. Cannon knew about this problem; he said:

"The Latter-day Saints are in many respects like other people who are not Latter-day Saints. We are apt to entertain views which are not very correct, and which may be the result of our traditions and preconceived ideas. This is a peculiarity that pertains to mankind generally, that whenever they deal with the things of God, or speak about them, or contemplate them, and especially when they read the predictions made by the servants of God concerning future events, or events that may transpire right before their eyes, they are apt to get... exaggerated ideas, in relation to them.
"... Are we not all inclined to look forward to many events which have been predicted by the servants of God as being of so great and wonderful, and I may say so supernatural a character, that when they shall be fulfilled they will even startle us, who believe they are coming, and will compel the unbelieving inhabitants of the earth to accept them as evidences of the truth?
"In our thoughts this seems to be the natural tendency. I notice it in myself; I notice it in others. When we read respecting the great events which are to take place in connection with this work, as predicted in the Book of Doctrine and Covenants, are we not inclined to think that, surely, when these things shall come to pass all the earth, as well as ourselves, will be constrained to acknowledge this to be the work of God, and these events to be indeed those which have been predicted by the prophets?
"Now I would not, for the world, say one word to lessen in the minds of my brethren and sisters the importance of these events; I would not say one word to weaken your proper expectations; but my experience has taught me that the Lord works in the midst of this people by natural means, and that the greatest events that have been spoken of by the holy prophets will come along so naturally as the consequence of certain causes, that unless our eyes are enlightened by the Spirit of God, and the spirit of revelation rests us, we will fail to see that these are the events predicted by the holy prophets."…

I got this interesting question from Presh (regular reader/commenter):

Iraq, just wondering how you would handle it and how you would treat you child if they told you they were gay and if they brought home a boy/girl friend?

Already been there and done that - not that exactly, but a similar scenario where the will of the Lord got gobsmacked in the face.  I would not handle it much differently than I did in that scenario, other than I would ratchet the emotion back about 5,000%......

Quite simple - I would let them know (hopefully without too much drama - and once their "good buddy" was gone), that they are out of line and not in harmony with God's will.  I would also let them know the path back to a repentant life.  Simple - the way a Bishop would handle it; but maybe with a teche more emotion since it would be a whole lot more personal.

D&C 19 would probably be read and a few other things.

I think this way - you do not "know that you are gay" unless you act out on it.  Also, a "boyfriend" or "girlfriend" in today's vernacular implies that sex is involved.  "Dating" is now code for an ongoing sexual relationship (at least outside the Lord's house - among my friends outside of Church).  I was shocked as a youth leader to be dragged into a meeting in the Stake Center where all of the 14-18 year olds were told by our Stake President that oral sex is sex.  This back in 2003 or 2004 (after that piece of shiz, Clinton had dragged the whole nation into the gutter.....)  Translation to me?  And what was passed on to me when asked about why this was even necessary??  I was told that, at the time, that 70% of the kids in that meeting (statistically speaking) had already gone there.  Holy moly!!  Kind of stripped my rose colored glasses right off - I was shocked.  I mean, there were some kids I would have possible suspected as having been sexually active, some involved in WoW issues - but on that scale by the time they reached their Senior year in HS?  Shocking.

So, the first thing I would do is call them to repentance.

Now, I want to turn the question back on the asker.  What do you think you would do if you were that kid who was heading over to dad's place to out him/herself with his/her lover (sorry, I about gag here at the idea of at least guy on guy stuff - just repulsive to me) and there was a head-on collision on the freeway; both gay people killed - and sent back to their Maker.  Not the "advocate" here, but their Maker.  TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PEOPLE AND ATTITUDES TOWARDS THE CHILDREN, SCRIPTURALLY SPEAKING; ONE SUCCORING (UNDERSTANDING AT LEAST THE TENDENCIES AND) THE NEEDS OF HIS WAYWARD SIBLINGS, THE OTHER NOT BEING ABLE LOOK UPON SIN WITH THE LEAST DEGREE OF ALLOWANCE.  ONE A GATE KEEPER, THE OTHER ONE WHO WOULD VOUCH FOR AND PLEAD THE CAUSE FOR THE WAYWARD ONE - POSSIBLY EVEN CARRYING THE SIN OF THAT INDIVIDUAL UNTIL THEY WERE ABLE TO COMPLETELY OVERCOME IT.  Two different people, two different roles; PERIOD (and yes, I go round and round and round some more with people over this - though the scriptures are replete with examples to make my point). 

Two different roles, one in purpose and one in heart - which is: to save as many children as is possible, while not polluting and demeaning what is good, holy and right and that has been held inviolate from an existing eternity (because the filter was set fine enough) and into the next eternity.  God has to keep even His own creations out (that He loves or has loved dearly) in order to not despoil the experience for those who choose to be obedient.  All the while, conserving Agency perfectly.  If He did not keep those basic parameters, He would cease to be God.  I will say this now (and hold the hate mail, please), but men are more suited to be the gate keepers than women are.  Men hold the line (keeping even those they love at a distance) until they maintain the value set, while the women (as nurturers) might be prone to bend on that detail out of love.  A man would shoot one of his own (errant) offspring in a heartbeat (if compelled to) to save the rest of the offspring from imminent death at the hands of the errant one.  A woman (mother of an errant offspring), might well flinch and lose the whole bunch for lack of focus as the giver of life.  A woman might not be the best in the trenches of war - it is illogical for a truly compassionate and loving woman to gun down the offspring of another woman (whom she knows went through the same process to bring that life into the world).  For a man, it simply is a calculated risk.  Taken to an extreme, this same process may explain why there are more pathological male mass murderers (not including the whole abortion thing here), than there are in the female population. 

Different roles, different brain chemistry, different outcomes.  Simple biology.  That is my observation.

So, yeah.  I would tell them to repent - hopefully in a calm and loving manner..... :)  In a perfect world.  If they truly had feelings of attraction toward the member of the same gender, I would tell them to resist that and not give in and remind them that I am human, and that I have had feelings of attraction (intense attraction, at times) towards other females (yes, I am open about that with my wife and she with me in the same manner - we really do not have one of those possessive, clingy, insecure and even pathological relationships where the other cannot know about old girl/boyfriends, or male/female friends at work, church, etc).  But never once would I ever act on it - I would rather be dead than betray myself and my wife and my God in that manner.  Especially as I get older and the old hormones are ramping down (thank you, Jesus....) - who has time or drive for that kind of stuff??  Especially those former LDS 69 year old cougars/players out there - grow up and get control of yourself.  You are no longer a teenager.....   Sheesh........

If that were ever going to happen, it would have been so "twenties" when the hormones were a ragin'.....  I once had a killer job right out of college in pharmaceutical research and development (hormone therapy tech) and I shared an office with a gorgeous brunette (model potential, except she had crooked teeth - and I told her all of that.... no pulling punches) who was half Italian, half Mexican.  Her name was Malinda Horne - which I translated roughly, as "Bad/Beautiful/Horny" based on a few things she shared with the group.  She had a regular stream of male visitors into the office hitting on her - it was almost laughable.  Our office had blinds on them on the door and the windows looking out into the rest of the facility - and I specifically asked if we could make sure to keep the blinds open at all times and the door open, unless we had to consult on a team member (we were both leads).  At one point, when we were sharing our respective marital woes (kind of a no-no, at least face to face; and even online.....), I told her that I felt attraction towards her - and that I thought it best that we have a safety valve if we had to work together.  Honesty is always the best policy.  I simply say it how it is.  People usually know exactly where they stand with me - although someone who holds some kind of position of power over me, I will mute that until it is no longer tenable.....  Then I let er rip.  Been there, done that as well....

So yeah, if I could tamp down any feelings towards a co-worker or whatever - because I was keeping it in the bounds the Lord set, why could a regular striving person who felt an attraction toward a same-gender person not do it?  Simple.  Logical.  End of story - go talk to the Bishop.  Repent.  Easy.  Logic rocks, baby!

I will make a great god one day - black and white, baby!  Leave the rest of the equation to a more compassionate offspring.....  I think the Father must have been an engineer or along those lines.  I just can't see anything else considering what I have read in scripture and according to what I have seen coming from Hubble.  At least, that is how it appears to me.....

Hope that put any questions to bed on the matter.  To bed - with one man and one woman - and after marriage.  THAT bed.... lol

To finish the piece off, I will say this;  you calling them out will most likely just make them angry and you will have a strained relationship aferwards.  BUT - over time, they will thank you for telling them the hard thing, the difficult thing at a time when it would have been easier to cave and tell that that "there is no sin in that thing".  If you really love someone, you give them the nasty tasting cold medicine, you makes them earn their wheels, you make them walk home when they forget to put gas in the car.  One day, they will love you for not turning them into pot headed, self-loathing human beings because you coddled them.


I am always amazed at how things kind of show up at the perfect time.  When I have been at a loss as to what to do for people who have to send their kids to public schools with way-askew value sets, we have the CES gearing up to do their own thing.

I mean, how do you address your 2nd grader learning in public screwels how to masturbate or learning the details of gay sex??  These children of hell are clearly going into "millstone about the neck" territory.  And on a parental level - "grab the baseball bat and clean a few clocks" level.  Maybe it is just me - but I like to guard my kids' innocence from freakish family members who have chucked common sense to the curb - or from screwel people who have taken the liberal agenda to a whole new level and want to corrupt the new generation; making the new generation of people "twice the children of hell that they are".

God will only be mocked so much - and then the hammer drops.  My instincts tell me that we are close.  This is why we are commanded to study the scriptures -
  • First, to receive a witness of their truthfulness.  
  • Second - while reading them, we receive personal revelation about what we need to focus on (repent of, modify in our lives).  
  • Third - we simply learn where the lines are in the eternal realms; what bounds God has placed on us and on those that He has taken down when they have crossed those bounds.  I look for patterns - the patterns of those who chose to push the limits and "tempt" the Lord their God - and failed.
Some people live their lives that way - seeing what the bare minimum is that they can get away with - and pushing the limits.  I am the opposite - I ask what I can do to put me as close to target as I can get in the areas where it matters, when it matters.  In other words, optimize the experience for the best possible outcome for the fam and I.  Those who constantly seek the edge, will experience the "gravity" of their situation one day.  You cannot always tempt fate and not find out what it has to offer......

After all that rambling, here is the article that got me to thinking:

And one last thought.  When it comes to scripture, this blog is my journal/"scripture".  Kind of a record of how I think for my posterity.  In reading it, my progeny will know what made their ancestor tick.  And, if they find something useful, it will help them understand who they are when they hit their late teens/20's and go through that self-discovery/searching phase.

Maybe looking back to these trying times, they will be in awe at what we had to go thru (after things are made aright in the Millennium) and the trash is kicked to the curb.

I love this man - without reservation.  Of all the people in this world - I get him more than anyone - and I have not even met him.  Reading TotPJS about six months before my mission fundamentally changed me.  Thanks be to God for a mother who cared enough to stop in at Deseret Book to get me my own paperback copy, which I then started reading casually, and then found I could not put it down.

Ending with the King Follett Discourse was the sweet cheery on top of a delicious dessert.  I fell in love with who that man is/was and cemented in my existing feelings for the Book of Mormon and the man who gave it all to get it here.  It made my mission easy.  At the same time I was preparing for my mission, I had a job at a local Kurtis Mathes TV and video shop.  A guy whose wife taught me Seminary in High School and then somewhere right after my Sophomore year, left this good man and the four little boys and ran off to be a lesbian in Portland, Oregon.  Then later (according to the scuttlebutt), a 19 year old guy half her age.  She was in the drug scene and a lot of other weird stuff back in the 70's.......  Yep, another piece of work - whose life just flew to pieces.  It was sad to see her implode.  Soooo...... I was working in this shop and one of my roles was to sell tv's.  I had ZERO ability to do so.  It was awkward because I actually can be a little shy (although I have mostly pushed past that in the past few decades) at times, but my product knowledge was nil.  Basically, the only way I got a sale, was when the people came in and already knew they wanted the best at the time - and bought it.  Other than that, I was a total bumbling idiot in that role.

As a missionary, after having read this book - I was able to powerfully (for that age, anyway) tell of my conviction of his role as the head of this dispensation - and translator of the Book of Mormon.  No questions asked. 

Recently, I was obliquely offered a job selling roofing systems in S. Alberta - not a whole lot of aerospace jobs there right now.....  My first question was - what kind of system is it, because I cannot "sell" something, unless I believe it in it completely.  As a missionary, I was able to talk to anybody about what I loved - but 25 years later, I still cannot sell others on something I do not believe in.

I have a situation where a family member flies to pieces when it comes to questions of God's dealings with Joseph on plural marriage - and even the nature of God when it comes to the nature of how Mary (mother of Jesus) came to be with child.  I am a pragmatist - details don't bother me if I do not question the motives of the person.  I leave the details the Lord.  After all, God HAS to be GOOD - or it is all for naught - in other words, you either buy the whole thing and accept anything you may not completely understand (from the puny perch we have been given), or we chuck the whole thing to the curb;  there IS NO middle ground in the debate or this contest.  What God chooses to do - or how He chooses to do things is of no business of mine to question.  It is just about accepting it - anything else?  Complete arrogance on my part - if I choose to question it.  Me, a freaking spec of sand in an ocean of it - questioning the Source of All?  Freaking delusional - and thus the reason I mock those that do for their arrogance and stupidity.  It is the height of a form of mental illness, involving grandiosity and self-importance, that would lead one to take a peek in just a corner of what we can see of worlds without end - and then question the author of all that - denying that He could exist.  Bloody delusional.....  That very act of realization for me, drives a knee to the ground and I declare within myself, "Lord, thou knowest all things - what can thy servant do to please thee that I may have the remotest chance of being in Thy holy presence once again?". 

It is for this reason, I fear, that many in this dispensation (of seeming endless scientific revelations) will find themselves in a bind after it is all over - and they find that who they are at their core (their spirits) have indeed continued on.  We have been able to see the expanses of the universe  and the utter majesty of our God - and many have chosen to reject Him in the face of stunning revelations about who He is - and the power and glory that is wielded by Him.  Utter arrogance.

Whether it is the detail of why God commanded one of His most magnificent creations (Joseph Smith) to take more than one wife, or whether His Only Begotten had sexual relations with one or more women (and possible posterity with them) while walking this earth, or whether His title of "Only Begotten of the Father" means that there was a physical act with an overshadowed (meaning, translated or shielded as a telestial being in the presence of a celestial and glorified being) virginal 19 year old (guess on age) Mary (who was betrothed to another man at the time) - the way EVERY other person has come into this world, including a painful, vaginal delivery (no magic, hokey-pokey in the delivery either) - or whether it was a waving of the magic wand for the delivery of the diefied genetic material (so much hogworts hogwash in my mind); it does NOT matter to me.  What God decided or decides to do is of no matter or consequence to me - I am not qualified in any way to counsel Him.  In fact - it is my role and job to simply take counsel - and then follow it.

Anything else, is demonically-influenced arrogance.  Period.  End of story - finito.

Here is the FB meme that got me spun up:

And here is the rub:  if you cannot handle the small things, how do you expect to make it back to the Kingdom of Heaven where there is so much more.  You will have damned yourself - by small thinking.  Literally, like the water in a channel coming upon an obstacle - your forward progress will cease - until you overcome the arrogance and stubbornness of heart and soul and submit your will to that of Father's.  That is the purpose of this life.  That is the purpose of the process we have been given to move line upon line, precept upon precept until we come to a fulness of the glory of God.

I have a co-worker that I consider an elect lady - but who is quite jaded against organized religion.  She was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer (the same gal who ripped me up one side and down the other for being "delusional" enough to believe in God back in 2012).  This after I asked her if her abdominal surgery went south, if she were in a position to be ready to meet her Maker.  It was a harmless question - but gave me about 45 mins of shred for my trouble.  I have to say - I was hurt by it a little.  I open my mouth and take a lot of damage for my 88:81 work - but this was a special kind of shred.  I asked God to do a special intervention for her (kneeling at my desk after work) - to soften her heart and to bring her to a place where He might save her from a life of hedonistic unbelief.  Well, she was the 1 in 10,000 whose surgery did go south - she went septic after a leak in the stitches and was dead twice during a 3 month fight for her life.  The total recovery took over a year.  Wherein, she returned and testified in front of all her subordinates that she knows that God lives.  Her husband had a heart attack and died in the front yard where she came home and found him.  The stress of her medical issues was too much - and he kicked it.  She has slid a little in her belief in God - and now this diagnosis for her.  She has several years, it is a slow-acting - so she has time to refine it and get it right before the meeting.


LOL - I love a good one.  This is one of the best zingers of the corrupt, nasty old gal I now call hiLIARy....

Gotta love it, baby!:


Him, Ayn Rand and a few others.  Just raw truth - cut to the quick.  Where are we at as a nation and people in this cycle?  Many a civilizations that never learned to get it optimized over time - and they were turned to dust.

Beautiful and to the point.  Just the way I like it (said with an Iowa accent):

I have been saying this ALOT lately.

I can only guess what is going through the minds of those in SLC who have to lead this motley crew...... of apostates and near-apostates.  LDSINOs.......

I have been thinking of this lately.  I have noticed how much the LDSINO's are users.  They use the Church as a moving service, as a networking service to find a good lawyer or tax man or yard cleaners (and other people they can use at "reduced, friends and family" rates, as an ATM to pay late rent, to buy groceries or use the Bishop's storehouse - all in times of need.  But when push comes to shove, they turn a blind eye to the commandments - or to giving back to that which gave to them.

It is all about character; when you use or pull from a resource, you attempt to give back at least as much as you took from the system.  Anything else?  Liberalism with it's attendant giant sucking sound.....  Only those who are true conservatives (conserve what is good and right and who contribute to build up instead of selfishly take), will make it into the kingdom.  There is no place for users in Zion and those realms that exist above it - that it is a stepping stone to reach.   The reason there were "no poor among them" is that everyone gave 110% and that happens to create a surplus if I am doing my math correctly - not a giant sucking sound as the looters take, take, take.

Think about it.  Think about where you would like to be - and how you will live your life to give more than you took.  You can take NONE of it with you.  It should be give, give, give until it hurts.  And then, there should be attendant appreciation to those that have given, given, given if we are in the position of the FEW (not the majority), who take, take take from the system.....

Can you tell it is the week of the dumb-as-craps convention?  Yikes!  A liberal implosion - almost a joy to see.  Maybe the few conservatives in the crew will scramble off to a Libertarian or Constitutional party and the remaining parasites can run join the Communist USA party where they belong!

I kind of wonder if the prophecy of the two parties going to war - with the American Independent party springing out of it, is coming to pass right now.....


You got the scoop a few days ago from deeply-embedded Wood Zone sources.

Now it has finally hit the presses....:

Now where do you go for your early-breaking news?  Yep - that's it; The Wood Zone, baby!

Thanks for help, helpin' me on this one, Rhonda.....

Other than not mentioning God or Jesus as the bedrock of her experience (she may have watered it down for general consumption), she has a great philosophy and experience in life.

I can relate to most of it:


This set of quotes rocks it.

My siblings are very passive and I am sure they wonder why I am so outspoken and cannot shut my mouth.  I sound like a broken record at times - no, all of the time.....

This pretty much sums up the line of reasoning I have:
"No person whose soul is illuminated by the burning Spirit of God can in this world of sin and dense darkness remain passive. He is driven by an irresistible urge to fit himself to be an active agent of God in furthering righteousness and in freeing the lives and minds of men from the bondage of sin.”
-Marion G. Romney, In Conference Report, 4 Oct. 1941, p. 89.

“If I had been set to turn the world over, to dig down a mountain, to go to the ends of the earth, or traverse the deserts of Arabia, it would have been easier than to have undertaken to rest, while the Priesthood was upon me. I have received the holy anointing, and I can never rest till the last enemy is conquered, death destroyed, and truth reigns triumphant.”
-Parley P. Pratt, Journal of Discourses, 1:15
 I would love to know exactly what PPP meant by "the holy anointing".


If you have not seen the news it is horrible.  Here is a report from boots on the ground:

A big earthquake with the strength of 8.1 on the Richter scale hit the Middle East .                                         Two million Muslims are dead, and over a million are injured.
Large parts of Iraq, Iran and Syria are in a state of ruin and the governments don't know where to start with providing help to rebuild.  
The rest of the world is trying to figure out how to help.
Britain is sending troops to help keep the peace.
Saudi Arabia is sending oil & monetary assistance. 
Latin American countries are sending clothing.
New Zealand and Australia are sending sheep, cattle and food crops.
The Asian countries (largely China and Japan) are sending labor to assist in rebuilding the infrastructure.
Canada is sending medical teams and supplies.
President Donald Trump, not to be outdone, is sending two million replacement Muslims.

Ha - you got zinged on the Wood Zone...... :) 

On a serious note, the person who sent this joke to me also said that they are pulling the missionaries out of Turkey.  This coming from a close working partner (not off some seedy blog on the web, like this one.... :)

I have never heard of this stuff before.  Maybe something to put in our craw for later use.

I have often had this thought about small pox.  I have wondered if it or a variation of it would be the means to bring down the Gentiles, after it was manipulated to bring down the (MORE LATER)

(Let me pause to say here, when I was four years of age I was afflicted with that dreadful disease, smallpox, and as bad as I could be and live. My mother took care of me all through this time, giving me sheep’s turtle tea to drink, which cured me, driving the pox out, and I recovered. I shall never forget that dreadful time. I mention this here, as it might be of some value to someone at some future time.)


According to this FB post I found, we are just about to the purge point.  What a tough time - but a time of relief.  Putin can't get here fast enough.....  Just to jog your memory, Orson was one of the 12 Apostles and was Jewish and was sent to dedicate the Holy Land for the return of the Jews in 1844:

This is an amazing quote from Orson Hyde regarding America's history, past as well as future. This comes from an excellent talk entitled, "Celebration of the Fourth of July." The whole talk is worth reading, but the quote below is particularly interesting. I included a link in case you'd like to read the whole talk. I believe we have reached the time he spoke of.
"In those early and perilous times, our men were few, and our resources limited. Poverty was among the most potent enemies we had to encounter; yet our arms were success ful; and it may not be amiss to ask here, by whose power victory so often perched on our banner? It was by the agency of that same angel of God that appeared unto Joseph Smith, and revealed to him the history of the early inhabitants of this country, whose mounds, bones, and remains of towns, cities, and fortifications speak from the dust in the ears of the living with the voice of undeniable truth. This same angel presides over the destinies of America, and feels a lively interest in all our doings. He was in the camp of Washington; and, by an invisible hand, led on our fathers to conquest and victory; and all this to open and prepare the way for the Church and kingdom of God to be established on the western hemisphere, for the redemption of Israel and the salvation of the world.
"This same angel was with Columbus, and gave him deep impressions, by dreams and by visions, respecting this New World. Trammeled by poverty and by an unpopular cause, yet his persevering and unyielding heart would not allow an obstacle in his way too great for him to overcome; and the angel of God helped him—was with him on the stormy deep, calmed the troubled elements, and guided his frail vessel to the desired haven. Under the guardianship of this same angel, or Prince of America, have the United States grown, increased, and flourished, like the sturdy oak by the rivers of water.
"To what point have the American arms been directed since the Declaration of our National Independence, and proven unsuccessful? Not one!
"The peculiar respect that high Heaven has for this country, on account of the promises made to the fathers, and on account of its being the land where the mustard seed of truth was planted and destined to grow in the last days, accounts for all this good fortune to our beloved America.
"But since the Prophets have been slain, the Saints persecuted, despoiled of their goods, banished from their homes, and no earthly arm to interpose for their rescue, what will be the future destiny of this highly-favored country? Should I tell the truth as it clearly passes before my mind's eye, my friends might censure me, and I might be regarded as an enemy to my country. If I should not tell the truth, but withhold it to please men, or to avoid giving offense to any, I might be regarded, by the powers celestial, as the enemy of God. What shall I do under these circumstances? Shall I be guilty of the crime of hesitating for a moment? No. Neither time nor place to hesitate now.......
"So sure and certain as the great water courses wend their way to the ocean, and there find their level—so sure as the passing thundercloud hovers around yonder Twin Peaks of the Wasatch Mountains, and upon their grey and barren rocks pours the fury of its storm, just so sure and certain will the guardian angel of these United States fly to a remote distance from their borders, and the anger of the Almighty wax hot against them in causing them to drink from the cup of bitterness and division, and the very dregs, stirred up by the hands of foreign powers, in a manner more cruel and fierce than the enemies of the Saints in the day of their greatest distress and anguish; and all this because they laid not to heart the martyrdom of the Saints and Prophets, avenged not their blood by punishing the murderers, neither succored nor aided the Saints after they were despoiled of their goods and homes.
"Would to God that we could forget this part of our experience in the land of our fathers! But we cannot forget it. It is incorporated in our being. We shall carry it to our graves, and in the resurrection it will rise with us. Had the United States been as faithful a guardian to the Latter-day Saints as the angel of God has been to them, she would never know dissolution, nor be humbled in dishonor by the decrees of any foreign powers.....
"When Justice is satisfied, and the blood of martyrs atoned for, the guardian angel of America will return to his station, resume his charge, and restore the Constitution of our country to the respect and veneration of the people; for it was given by the inspiration of our God."


Sounds like Auschwitz Number 2 - if the information is credible.

Either way, I would not be surprised in the least.  Our gubmint is corrupt as hell - literally; hell doesn't hold much over these chumps.....  How can I sing God Bless America with any kind of real feeling or emotion?  How about, "God Purge America - land that I loved.....".

They do a political move and dump more trash on hellery - and the feds turn the investigation on the person who hacked, instead of the master biotch that ought to be rotting behind iron bars.  Truth of the matter is, people like me and others with a real following and real gonads will be rotting in lieu of that master biotch.  What a botched operation/experiment in republicanism we have.  Only as good as the will of the people to throw the trash to the curb.  I am disgusted to the point of being ill right now.  I almost have to turn it all off - it is too distressing.  This is hellish mess I am endowing my children with??  It is not worth the paper it is written on - the Constitution is dead.  Where are the Elders to save it?  Where is the rule of law??

I know what the final outcome is - but my faith gets to shaking on the fate of this country, at times.....

Here is what got me spun up:

God help the elect to see what our awful state is, and to avoid the hell that we have coming to us as a nation.


Interesting - the Turkish empire (Persia/Medes) rising again.

Remember the prophecies related to the Jubilee year by Rabbi Ben Samuel in 1217 all revolved around the rise and fall of the Turkish Empire. 

Dates of:

1517  Ottoman Empire takes over Holy Land
1917  Ottomans kicked out of Holy Land
1967  Ottomans/Arabs lose control of Temple Mount
2017  Ottomans kicked to the curb when Christ comes (end of 2016 and final Jubilee Year of 2500 year cycle?).

It sounds as if things are about to get real interesting.  I love patterns - and the Lord's use of them.

Here is the article:

Buckle up, baby!


This is a great vid:

The greatest thing we can do to honor their memory, is to live honorable lives.

And then prepare spiritually for epic things to come.  What we will go thru will eclipse even this stuff.  For many, they will with spiritually and physically.

A good brother who lived in Wyoming in 1997 and was there for the 150 year festivities spoke in church yesterday.  A very impassioned talk and a great reminder of those who sacrificed for the blessings we enjoy today.  When we forget, is when God allows us the luxury of remembering.


Folks - I have taken a lot of damage from various people over being "over judgmental".  I am not actually.

What I do is not judge (that is God's job and I do not possess those keys), but what I will do is scope the scrips out and find out what the parameters are that God uses to judge individuals - and then families - and then nations.  I am not bragging here - but I look for patterns, nail them down and then optimize the results.  It is the engineer in me - EVERYTHING is optimized for best performance.  When I put my mind to do something, I try to do it to win - best results and (hopefully) in as efficient a manner as is possible.  When someone steps out of those bounds (including myself), I call them on it (if it affects me or others that I love and have stewardship over).

That is not being judgmental - that is doing my job.  People can often misinterpret the command not to judge, with the command to NOT JUDGE UNRIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT.  Those two things are two different animals.  We HAVE to judge ALL the time - whether it is choosing a good lawyer, a good mechanic, a good place to work, a good handyman to fix stuff around the house, whether a teacher for our children is someone we want them spending 7 hours a day with - so many things.  We do it ALL the time.  It is called discernment - and it would be a complete joke to not use a little in life.  No one would expect you not to.....

What we cannot do is judge someone's final judgment ("that person is going to hell", etc).  We have to exercise compassion and utilize the same kind of ruler stick there, that we would want used on us.  That is Christ's injunction for us.

So, when I kept saying over and over that "this nation is going to be judged" right before 9/11, I knew we had crossed a line (mostly in supporting the Clintons in their shenanigans), and I could feel an impending feeling of doom for this nation, collectively.

I feel it again, but at a grass-roots level.  15 years ago, it was more of a national thing - now I feel that almost no one is exempt, for we have all partaken of her sins (we all support the hellish agendas put out by the gads on one level or another).  In other words, many of us turn a blind eye to what is going on.  At the very least, it may be getting something for nothing and sucking from the teat of the beast when we could be working for our sustenance, it could be supporting unjustifiable wars because our son or husband is in the military - it could be a whole host of so many things that draw us in sympathetically to support the beast/whore and her works.  One that I have tried to de-couple myself from is paying taxes to support it.  I want the beast to die - it needs to; so I allow only the bare minimum I have to, to go towards the sustenance of it.  I would that it were zero.  I want NO money to pay for an abortion.  NONE.  That is the most heinous thing I can think of - just sick and twisted and wrong - almost no matter how you package it.  No amount of sweetener makes it sweet - just bitter and repulsive - as it is.

Here is a little more on keys to proper judgment that I found on FB:

My sister shared something with me that she saw on the Nephite Explorer program yesterday (Sunday, July 24, 2016). It is by Bruce H. Porter from BYU Religious Studies.
He said: "Individual wickedness is going to be judged in the eternities. But the sins or iniquities of a nation needs to be judged in mortality. When it's judged in mortality then it's the nation that has to be punished. We're told in the New Testament that there is no forgiveness of sin without the shedding of blood. Individual sin can be forgiven because of the blood of Christ. But the sin of a nation, and the blood that has to be shed in their turn from the absence of God, is the blood of the citizens themselves. The nation suffers because of it, not the individual. Individual sin is judged in the hereafter. The sins of a nation have to be judged here, because there are no nations in the hereafter. We see the same thing here at Gettysburg – the blood that was spilt from both sides was from the sin of a nation that began to turn away from God. As President Lincoln talked about returning to God – and the men that he inspired felt the same way – there was a need to defend not just the principles of freedom, but the principles of deity. The principles that God had set to defend the rights that man has."


Here were some comments that I thought needed to be re-posted because they contain a few gems.   I occasionally will go back and review the comments on pieces that get a lot of attention.  This was one of them.

Gotta love the subtlety of Isaiah in the Book of Mormon.  I think this commenter nailed it down.  I have never picked that one up before - but in this context, I think there is little to debate about.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this blog series, but have to disagree with your thoughts on the two prophets being LDS General Authorities. These prophets will come from the House of Israel and be recognized as one of their faith, who God will raise up among them.
  1. The following verses in 2 Nephi 8 have always led me to believe that they would come from outside of the nation (political) of Israel.

    18 And none to guide her among all the sons she hath brought forth; neither that taketh her by the hand, of all the sons she hath brought up.
    19 These two sons are come unto thee, who shall be sorry for thee—thy desolation and destruction, and the famine and the sword—and by whom shall I comfort thee?
    20 Thy sons have fainted, save these two; they lie at the head of all the streets; as a wild bull in a net, they are full of the fury of the Lord, the rebuke of thy God.
  2. Spencer also mentions then potentially being members of the Quorum of the Twelve: "It was at this time that two prophets were called in Zion to go and alter the course of the Jewish people. I knew who they were at the time, but I have not retained that memory. I believe they were members of the Quorum of the Twelve who were then serving in Zion... They left with great courage, knowing their task was pivotal and that it would cost them their lives."


Sounds kind of dire of them to cut so much.

They are on the edge financially:

This is one of the kingpins of the yourapeein red banking system.....

It will not be good for the global system if they "Lehman Bro" it here soon.

Wow - this is great stuff.  Part of the mission of the blog.
“One of the grand fundamental principles of Mormonism is to receive truth, let it come from where it may.”-Joseph Smith, History of the Church, 5:499
"A man in search of truth has no peculiar system to sustain, nor peculiar dogma to defend or theory to uphold; he embraces all truth, and that truth, like the sun in the firmament, shines forth and spreads its effulgent rays over all creation, and if men will divest themselves of bias and prejudice, and prayerfully and conscientiously search after truth, they will find it wherever they turn their attention.” (John Taylor"


I love people who can just zip through life, regardless of what bad or good may come their way - and do it with grace and with beauty.  It is all about attitude and not letting things get the best of you:


Here is Jim's story:

 This is Jim Thorpe. Look closely at the photo, you can see that he's wearing different socks and shoes. This was not a fashion statement. It was the 1912 Olympics, and Jim, a Native American from Oklahoma represented the U.S. in track and field. On the morning of his competitions, his shoes were stolen. Luckily, Jim ended up finding two shoes in a garbage bin. That's the pair that he's wearing in the photo. But one of the shoes was too big, so he had to wear an extra sock. Wearing these shoes, Jim won two gold medals. Just a reminder that no weapon formed against you shall prosper. Whatever you woke up with this morning: stolen shoes, bad jobs, ill health, failures in relationships or whatever, don't let it stop you from running your race. God aims for you to win despite what the enemy throws at you!

I thought this was interesting - I think people are catching on:

 According to that Jewish boy who had the NDE, we are three months out.  Kind of crazy, right?  He said He would come as a thief in the night.  Get in, get out - silently.  I think it will surprise many people.

I was cruising thru Idaho (Blackfoot) and I was in touch with this man's family.  We were able to stop in and do a quick Wood Zone presentation for a small group gathered for an FHE evening.  Good peeps - all of them.  Preparedness minded - and they have put their money where their lives are - into great preparedness products.  They also got me on track with the BoM, North American model.  Well ahead of the curve, right?

I would check this out if I were in the market for a limited role RV.  I have a land whale that would not make it down the basic dirt track where you would really like to go.  This little unit will go just about anywhere you want to go - and I like the idea that you are not on the ground where you are relatively safe from wild animals and you can catch any breeze on a hot summer night.  You can jam a lot of gear into the cargo compartment.

Anyway - check this demo vid out:

Hopefully, I will be doing a similar demo vid in the next month or so.  Final powder coating on the solar array and brackets and then battery installation and final wiring before flipping switches and powering the energy machine up.  WOOHOO!!  It has been a lot of work getting all the processes and hardware nailed down on this first of model prototype.

This is strictly personal (in other words, individual circumstances may apply) - but I have been told to get mobile and stay mobile.  It will come in handy when people are in a state of flux.  If you study every major societal disruption, shelter in place is rarely an option.  People are on the move - as they have found out in Europe recently, etc.

Here is another awesome marketing vid on this unit:

Love the music - prolly my favorite all-time cool music.

This is about what Joseph Smith described - and Moses, too:

We use 200W lamps down here - I think they use 20,000 Watt monsters in heaven.


 Just got the news that my company is taking a MASSIVE hit for our second quarter earnings report.  A co-worker buddy of mine who is pro-Wood Zone just sent me the news.  Whoa - stock prices are going to plummet.  He said the second half of my 777 prophecy may just be in the works after all.  On top of that, we just adopted a net-120 billing policy to our suppliers, which moves the burden of carrying inventory costs to our suppliers.  This will conserve cash flow in the short-term.  Things are not in a good state.

All things will be fulfilled every jot and tittle.

And on that note, I want to say a few things here.

Things NEVER turn out how you expect (in your natural mind), prophetically speaking.  When it was prophesied that Jesus would come out of Bethlehem (City of David), it was right.  Same thing for him coming out of Egypt.  Same thing for Him being a Nazarene.  All three perfectly valid statements - all three seeming to be perfectly contradictory of each other at first reading.  All causing enough confusion in minds that were not infused with the spirit of prophecy, that they could not comprehend and they ultimately rejected the corner stone of the very building they were grasping after.

Similarly with Joseph Smith declaring the wars poured upon all nations in D&C 87.  Reading that in 1865, I would have assumed the next thing would be an immediate war starting in Europe and then blacks rising up in the USA - but it would not be so at that point in time.  Only after reading how history unfolded over the next almost 100 years and then beyond to now (with our current Black oLives Matter) thingy going on, would we see it in its proper perspective (and there is still a lot of history to go through until we can finally say - okay, yeah; I got it now.

So, I just laugh at those who (in Jesus' day and even now) go, "Hey, failed prophecy - he was not born in Egypt just as scripture says!!".  I always say that fools mock - and they shall mourn their folly.

To the rest, be patient and carry on.


Wow, we already have T(ranny)J Maxx, Targay and now Macy's.  These idiots don't get it.  I never want my kids setting foot in there - out of concern that some freak will peep on them.

I was in the Home Despot the other day and sitting in the stall, I look over and someone used their freaky perverse "home improvement" skils to drill a hole through the divider into my stall.  I am sick of the pervs and sickos we have all around us.  Makes me want to get out and move to a small little town where the perversity has not caught up with the rest of the world and rant and rave to the rest of the world until the final curtain falls......   Oh, wait.

We need to:
  •  Bring back the Academy System - and destroy the public screwel system..... see ya!
  •  Grow our own healthy food with no garbage in it
  •  Bring back traditional/holistic medicine
  •  Bring back the concept of a father working for the sustenance of the family while mom has the luxury of staying home and raising the family
  •  Get rid of the internet except for the most rudimentary of stuff (all community-based and approved).
  •  Develop all industries locally so that we are virtually self-sustaining
  •  Trash the television - period.
  •  Death penalty to all murderers, child molesters and rapists.  Period.
  •  Constitutional ideals with NO exceptions for a homosexual community organizer or any other "progressive".....
  •  A place where you have ZERO concern about your kid being able to play until it is time to come home for dinner.
Oh, I just described the Zion society.  Application to it is voluntary - anyone else can go packing if they don't like it.  If they attempt to force the people to change or submit to their ways (the way the USA has been doing it lately), the attempt to militarily force the change is met with fire from heaven, called down by a righteous Priesthood who has power in their Priesthood because all the stuff above has been put in place.

I am liking this more and more by the minute.....

Here is what got me spun up:

I harbor no tolerance any more for these freaks and pervs.  None.


There are MANY mis-conceptions (double entendre here....) with this commandment.  One of the biggest mis-nomers is that we are to revere parents - at any cost; including wayward parents.  THAT is a false notion - to the full extent of the notion of false, and not just kind of a deviation.  The implied portion of that commandment, is that the parents have their crap together and are not 70 year old teenagers (wayward teens, who have no concept of right or wrong who are wayward and still trying to pick their way through life with a juvenile mindset). 

The EXACT OPPOSITE is in fact, the case.  The idea is that you are a conservative in the true sense, and honor and revere the values that the parents are passing on to you (the ones they learned from God - that are approved by God) and that you will honor what they have to say.

As a "wayward" teen who was still trying to figure it out, I figured it simply meant that I would live to be an old guy if I were obedient to my parents wishes - but have since found out it is so much more.  When we hold the (good) value set of our parents, we will not be taken from the Promised Land we were given.  This is the promise of the Book of Mormon.  Honour and obey the God of this land, who is Jesus Christ, and look to Him - and you will live.  Let go of the iron rod, and you will be swept from the land as in old times.  We have the wreckage of civilizations to prove it.

In the case of Abraham, when his dysfunctional and twisted parent tried to worship a false god and sacrifice him to that false god, Abraham got the heck out and never looked back.  So far as I know - NEVER.  We have no record of a re-union, either because it was not written or because the parent perished with the wicked in babylon, or because Abraham simply severed that relationship that was as dross - not worth the breath and effort to keep it alive.  He found a new land - a promised land, and then never looked back.  There is metaphor in that......

In the case of the Israelites, they began to stray from honoring the good value set they were handed by their righteous fathers and eventually degraded to the point where they were sacrificing babies to their false god, molech.  They did NOT honour their parents - and departed from the value set.   They were nearly completely expunged from the record on multiple occasions.

So there you have it - maintain a value set, or be swept from the land.  It is the legacy of back-sliding Israel.  No less than three times - and about to be a fourth time with us in our day......  We have a choice in the matter in this heated cultural war.  We need to have a healthy dose of discernment - and be ready to walk away from the dysfunction of those who will not maintain those values - and the punishments that they will receive for their lack of giving heed.  We have all been warned.

Here is a nice piece that got me spun up from "Gathering Families" (click link):

“Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.” (Genesis 20:12)
There’s another story running through the books of Mosiah and Alma that we don’t pay much attention to, but it’s one that illustrates the fifth of the Ten Commandments.
In 150 B.C., in the tenth year of the reign of the wicked king Noah, we find Amulon and Alma serving under him as priests. Alma believed Abinadi, repented, and dedicated his life to covenant-keeping and serving God. Amulon called for Abinadi’s death by fire.
The short version is, Alma refused a kingdom, choosing to serve instead, and his posterity helped shape the rest of the history of the people of Nephi. Amulon seized whatever power he could, rocketed into power and influence amongst a much larger group of people, but his whole posterity were destroyed within about forty years. Both earned ‘honor’ if you define it as fame or respect. But honoring our parents most of all means honoring our Heavenly Father by keeping his commandments. Alma did, while Amulon’s power came through force and imposing death on others.
If you want the longer version, here it is:
Alma taught the gospel, baptized hundreds, and fled into the wilderness with 450 church members when warned by the Lord (Mosiah 18:35), settling in a place a little closer to Zarahemla, which they called Helam. They immediately began tilling, planting, and building, and they prospered to a degree that amazed Alma. They lived there in peace for between 23 and 25 years. At this point Amulon entered Alma’s life again.
Going back to the time when they split, within a couple of years after Alma’s people left, the Lamanites attacked Noah’s people. Amulon and the other priests, along with Noah and other men, abandoned their families in an effort to save themselves. There was a mutiny, Noah was burned at the stake, but Amulon and the priests escaped, living in the wilderness. Two or three years later, they kidnapped twenty-four of the Lamanites’ daughters and married them. The men stole food and valuables from the people of Limhi- either for survival or to impress their wives. They named the place they settled, Amulon, and 20-22 years later we find that they had ‘begun’ to possess the land and till the ground.
The Lamanites ran across them and their land while searching for the escaped people of Limhi. The Lamanites’ first inclination was to kill them, but the priests’ Lamanite wives convinced them not to. They continued their search with the people of Amulon in tow, and next encountered Alma’s people. Next thing we read, the king of the Lamanites had not only given political honor and power to Amulon (ruling over Alma’s land of Helam, Mosiah 23:39), but had put Amulon and the others in charge of creating and running an educational system. (Mosiah 24:1, 4-7) This was in 121 B.C and the beginning of Amulon’s people’s meteoric rise to power among the Lamanites.
But let’s return to the time when Amulon ruled over Alma. Alma and his people were delivered from Amulon within about a year, and joined Mosiah’s kingdom in the land of Zarahemla. Alma became close friends with King Mosiah, and apparently helped influence the massive change in government there from a monarchy to a republic—the reign of the judges under a set of laws established by Mosiah. It was a shift that gave power to the individual. Alma’s son became the first chief judge, but voluntarily gave up political power after eight years. He did this in order to share what he saw as the truly vital power: the power that God’s word has in changing hearts, lives, and nations, and the power of the priesthood in providing saving ordinances. He, like his father, taught and served without pay. Alma’s descendants continued to do this for generations afterward, shaping the Nephite nation for the better.
In contrast, over the next few decades, Amulon and his children were involved in threatening to kill people of their own heritage (Alma’s group, see Mosiah 24:10-11), and in driving at least two other groups to kill their own relatives, as well: The Amalekites, who were Nehors, helped completely destroy the city of Ammonihah, which was full of Nehors; and the Lamanites, who killed Lamanites who had become converted to the gospel.
When Ammonihah was destroyed in 81 B.C., the Lamanites—the unconverted ones, plus the Amalekites and Amulonites-- killed all of those people but took captive Nephites from the city of Noah and the surrounding area. The Nephites chased down the Lamanites to retrieve the captives, and in that battle and ones soon afterward to drive the Lamanites out of the wilderness, “almost all” of the descendants of Amulon were killed by Nephites (Alma 25:4). The Lamanites, reeling from their losses, began to remember the things Aaron and the other sons of Mosiah had taught them, and many repented. The remaining children of Amulon-- likely the actual CHILDREN of him, who would have been between about 40 and 60 years old-- were calling the shots at this point and killed all the new converts in a fiery massacre. The remaining Lamanites were so incensed that they hunted down and killed whatever Amulonites they could find. Any who could, escaped to the ‘east wilderness’. Moroni probably inadvertently helped finish them off; between 72 and 67 B.C. he focused on driving all the Lamanites out of the east wilderness, and the Nephites moved in instead. This would have chased all the remaining Amulonites back to the Lamanites, who were anxious to continue the genocide.
So after about 40 years of enjoying significant power among the much larger nation of Lamanites, Amulon’s descendants were wiped out by battle, disease, burning, and being hunted down.
This was all prophesied by Abinadi, about forty years earlier.
“And now when the flames began to scorch him, he cried unto them, saying:
Behold, even as ye have done unto me, so shall it come to pass that thy seed shall cause that many shall suffer the pains that I do suffer, even the pains of death by fire; and this because they believe in the salvation of the Lord their God.
And it will come to pass that ye shall be afflicted with all manner of diseases because of your iniquities.
Yea, and ye shall be smitten on every hand, and shall be driven and scattered to and fro, even as a wild flock is driven by wild and ferocious beasts.
And in that day ye shall be hunted, and ye shall be taken by the hand of your enemies, and then ye shall suffer, as I suffer, the pains of death by fire.
Thus God executeth vengeance upon those that destroy his people.” (Mosiah 17:14-19)
Alma the Younger saw this prophecy fulfilled, and he taught his son Helaman, “O remember, remember, my son Helaman, how strict are the commandments of God. And he said: If ye will keep my commandments ye shall prosper in the land—but if ye keep not his commandments ye shall be cut off from his presence.” (Alma 37:13)
Alma and Amulon both exercised power. One chose true priesthood power, the power to give and serve. The power that refines and brings honor “without compulsory means”. (D&C 121:46) The other chose political power and compulsion, the power to take. The power that very often corrupts.
Which one brought honor to his parents?


This is fascinating.

Just one more reason to teach and live that, "oh so restrictive" Law of Chastity (sarcasm).  I have found that most nasty things when it comes to health, come from viruses (including throat cancer from HPV):

The virus that causes common cold sores may be behind cognitive problems and memory loss later in life.

New research published in Neurology on March 25, found people who had higher levels of the herpes simplex type 1 virus circulating in their blood were more likely to have cognitive deficits than those who had lower levels of the virus in their blood.

"While this association needs to be further studied, the results could lead to ways to identify people at risk of cognitive impairment and eventually lower that risk," study author Dr. Mira Katan, a neurologist with the Northern Manhattan Study at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City, said in a statement.

Cold sores are caused by one of two types of herpes simplex virus. The other typically affects the genital area. People with the herpes simplex 1 virus may not show any symptoms, but some develop painful cold sores that are often unsightly can last a week or more. There is no cure for the virus.

Researchers conducted tests that measured memory, thinking and processing abilities in 1,625 people who were on average 69 years old and lived in northern Manhattan in New York. Tests were given annually for eight years on average. Participants were also given blood tests that looked for five common infections the researchers considered low-grade: herpes simplex type 1, herpes simplex type 2, cytomegalovirus (a virus that can cause serious illness in people with weakened immune systems), chlamydia pneumoniae (which can cause the common respiratory infection pneumonia) and Helicobacter pylori (a bacteria found in the stomach that can cause ulcers).

"We found the link was greater among women, those with lower levels of education and Medicaid or no health insurance, and most prominently, in people who do not exercise," said Katan.

People who had higher levels of the infections were 25 percent more likely to have a lower cognitive score than those with the lowest levels. The study only showed an association, not cause and effect. Infection was not associated with any changes in memory or thinking abilities over the course of the eight-year testing period, the researchers also found.

Katan said the findings suggest exercise and childhood vaccinations against viruses could reduce risk for memory problems later in life.

A 2011 studylinked the herpes virus that causes cold sores to increased risk for Alzheimer's disease. Researchers tagged viral particles with fluorescent proteins and watched them under a microscope, only to find the particles damaged nerve cells in ways that may lead to Alzheimer's.

Dr. Timo Strandberg, a cognitive disease researcher at the University of Helsinki in Finland, and Allison Aiello, an associate professor of epidemiology at the University of Michigan, wrote an editorial accompanying to the new study that called for more research to look at the interactions between disease pathogens and damage to the brain.

One& expert cautioned while the study was intriguing, not much can be made from it at this stage.

"My concerns are, who are these people who are drawn into these studies? Because they're not a representative population," Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert who chairs the preventive medicine department at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, told CNN. He was not involved in the study. "I'm just very cautious about what we can conclude from this association."


Gentlemen, if you see a gal sporting one of these on her pinky, run the other way:

While a dry or empty well can produce no water to quench the thirst of another weary traveler in life, I think the message of this whole thing is the opposite message that Christ was preaching.  It seems to be one of "look inside yourself" for the answers, instead of the injunction to serve your fellow man and in losing yourself in selfless service of others, you will find yourself.

When will the madness stop??  Right really has become wrong, and wrong has become right.....

I do not find anything in this lady's experience that I cannot endorse.  Excellent listening:


This is the reason that Jesus talked about topping off the lamps early.  We are IN IT right now.

Next comes the physical purge - where there is a physical dividing point and people literally choose which side of the line they will be on - and then sudden destruction comes.

It is no longer, "A test is coming, a test is coming" - it is now "the test is withering, endure it well".  It will get worse before it gets better.

This pretty much sums it all up.

I have seen many who will cling desperately to life - and eschew the truth.

It is to be the other way around.  Truth basically - at all costs.  Jesus did it.  Joseph did it.  Many of us will be asked to do it.  The decision has to be made already - before the test arises and fear or pressure clouds our judgment.  Just as with chastity and so many other things.  The decision has to be made up front:

"for what can our enemies do? Only kill the body, and their power is then at an end. <3 span=""> STAND FIRM, my friends; never flinch <3 span="">. Do not seek to save your lives, for he that is afraid to die for the truth, will lose eternal life. Hold out to the end, and we shall be resurrected and become like Gods, and reign in celestial kingdoms, principalities, and eternal dominions.”
- Joseph Smith, June 1844



This is part 3.0.   The Jaredites and Nephites already endured 1.0 and 2.0.  That little blue book was written for us.  It is as valid today as the newspaper.  In other words - we are living in it right now.

Here is what got me spun up:

"What then will be the condition of the people when the great and dreadful war will come? It will be very DIFFERENT FROM the WAR between the NORTH and SOUTH. It will be neighborhood against neighborhood, city against city, town against town, state against state, and they will go forth destroying and being destroyed. Manufacturing will almost cease, great cities will be left desolate. The time will come when the great city of New York will be left without inhabitants... When that day shall come (when the missionaries will be called home) there shall be wars, not such wars as have come in centuries and years that are past and gone, but a desolating war. When I say desolating, I mean that it will lay these European nations in waste. Cities will be left vacated, without inhabitants. The people will be destroyed by the sword of their own hands. Not only this but many other cities will be burned; for when contending armies are wrought up with the terrible anger, without the Spirit of God upon them, when they have not that spirit of humanity that now characterizes many of the wars amongst nations, when they are left to themselves, there will be no quarter given, no prisoners taken, but a war of destruction, of desolation, of the burning of the cities and villages, until the land is laid desolate."- Orson Pratt - Original Council of the Twelve Apostles-under Joseph Smith -Vol. 20 of the Church’s Journal of Discourses:
(J. Disc. 20: 150)


This is a must-read article to understand what is going on over in Turkey and the events leading up to the coup attempt.  I remember all of these events happening throughout the year, but did not put any of the pieces together.  It was too dis-jointed to make a cohesive connection of it all.

Now, the truth trickles out.  Apparently, the USA really WAS NOT HAPPY with Erdogan and his more religious leaning, so it was our plan to pop him out of place using the CIA.  Wow - when will we quit messing with nations and let God handle it?  Everything we touch, back-fires horribly......:

Hopefully just three more months.......


This from FB and too good not to share:


Let me say here that many of these signs are slated to come to the world before the "Great and Dreadful Day of the Lord", which is the one where fire comes and consumes the earth.  Many of them will come during the seven years of God's chastisement when the earth gets pretty much totally trashed.  This is what the seven years of food storage was to be put up for.  The local consuming fire over in Jerusalem when He saves His people there will be a local event and not the "big finale" that is directed at the whole earth.  Sorry, too close to the 4th, not to use that term......

Hint, it was not modern vaccines - so much as it was this:

Welcome to the facts.

Here is something interesting showing an underground (limestone?) quarry in England, similar to Hezekiah's Cave in Jerusalem - where the Ark of the Covenant was located until Ron Wyatt found it:

Interesting, eh?


A comment/question on a previous blog piece.  I love sincere, thoughtful questions:

I notice you have the two prophets being killed this fall. The scriptures say before this happens, they hold off the armies for 3 1/2 do you believe they have already been there, holding off the destruction for 3 years? Seems like the 200, 000, 000 army that is supposed to be amassed for the big battle haven't quite assembled yet, although things do seem to be lining up with people getting into position.

This was a legitimate question – and I have asked it MANY times myself.  I will say this.  There are perceptions of how it is supposed to be – and there is the reality of how it happens when it comes to the prophetic word.  For example, the Lord said that the gospel would go to every nation, kindred, tongue and people.  And then the end comes.  Many people say there is no way the end is near because of places like China or even Israel that have not gotten it wholesale (just in bits and pieces).  Heck – even Russia has barely been given a chance, and the place is crawling with the House of Israel.  With that statement about it going to every nation, kindred tongue and people, we would get the warm fuzzy of seeing two Elders or Sisters calling on every door of every hamlet and village across an entire nation.  Not sure if that is the picture the Lord had in mind.  It might be ideal – but never close to reality.

My picture of the two Prophets has always been:  two guys in beards, maybe with a staff sitting in a cool cave while 200,0000,000 soldiers are sitting with all their equipment within miles of them – and not able to pass to get on to their goal of Jerusalem.  Each time they attempt, fire is called down from heaven and the column of soldiers is stopped in their tracks.  Finally, they get a bee in their bonnet and over-run the two guys and take them out.  Then wipe out a bunch of Jerusalem and then start a monster party – then destruction with fire coming from the hand of God.

Probably about 90% of the above scenario is probably LDS culture mingled with some scriptural backing and a good imagination.  I actually like that Jewish boy’s take  on the scenario.  Lots of fighting among the people off site for a period of time – then an event which gets everyone on the same page (a nuke fired at Israel that they retaliate for?? or the knocking down of the Dome of the Rock) and the whole mess (probably UN-backed) heads for Jerusalem to kick some butt and avenge the wrong. 

As far as the Prophets go, there were two LDS general authorities quietly called to oversee the area just over three years ago.  High Priests.  No staff – no beards.  No cave.  No direct conflict with a massive army – but no one has really molested Israel in those 3.5 years since the A/C ascended TM and caused the sacrifice to cease.  Things are brewing – all nations (whose armies and reserves may well number in the 200,000,000 range) are assembled just to the north of Israel.  According to Natan, it takes just a matter of weeks before they all move south and do a number on the IDF and move into Jerusalem.  You have to remember, Syria is not days or weeks away – it is hours north.  Most of those troops as far away as Ankara could be moved into position in a few short days.  We are not talking about a 3 to 6 month set-up like they were dealing with in Desert Storm.   It would be quick.  It may be that the whole ISIS thing is a smoke screen in order to have the amassing there and ready to take the real prize of Jerusalem.  Then you just create a crisis (which CNN will pump throughout the world) and be there to “solve” the problem.  How convenient.  Just as there is a major drill right before every major false flag in the USA (crisis actors and equipment already in place and ready to go for the event without drawing undue attention), they already have their stuff in place for a bait and switch rapid attack that the IDF will not be able to anticipate nor man up for.  It is actually quite a good tactic – on par with the Trojan Horse ruse.  All they need is a crisis that Joe Public will buy into to shout at the tv screen “Death to Israel” – and you have set the noose.  Actually, I could not plan it better myself for a nearly bloodless takeover of Israel.  This IS satan’s prize.  he has been trying to wipe God’s chosen people off the map for millennia.  Now they are all gathered in one place and it will be a turkey shoot.  hitler himself could not be more pleased about a set up like that.

Like with all arrogant people who cannot see beyond the end of their own nose, they will also miss the fact that they are all also corralled and in a perfect place for God to wipe the armies of the earth out in one fell swoop.  Those that have lived by the sword – shall die by the sword.  And the millennium can then get off to an otherwise less rocky start.  War mongering men and material all reduced to smoldering ruins.  The wicked in the USA, also gathered in upstate NY for their final demise – like has happened twice before.  Same principles and final swan song – just different actors and weapon systems.

Neat and tidy – and on a tidy schedule.  Just the way God usually does things.  Us arrogant humans are so predictable – and pitiful in our attitudes as we justify our behaviors at the expense of a belief in God.  Oh, the foolishness of man (can you tell I just got a nice “correcting” for my juvenile belief in a fairy-tale God?).  Sheesh – engineers are the worst for discrediting things they cannot see nor feel.  Sadly, there will be nothing but stuttering and back-pedaling as years of incorrect thinking are put into a tailspin as they realize they are still “there” – just not with their bodies, after death changes their state of being.  It will be a revelation.
