WHO ARE THE GADS? - HUGH NIBLEY

I think we have to dial in our definition just a little better than we have in the past.

There are many in our congregations, sitting on the podiums and in places of high power.  Heck, by this definition, you could probably account for a minimum of half of the people in power.  By this definition, most of the North Dallas neighborhood that I visited the other week, needs to go.

I am suspicious of anyone with excessive power and excessive popularity (in the inner circles) and so many others and so much else.  We literally worship these people in gay, WhollywEIRd and amongst the power-elite in DC - and we do not distinguish them. 

Basically, my litmus is this:  if they rise quickly to the top and seem to come into money when there is no clear reason why they should have; you may have a gad on your hands.   For example, Hillary as Sec of State should not be a fractional billionaire along with her hubby.  If the same person would normally be in prison for the same thing that other, lesser people are currently rotting in prison for, you probably have a gad on your hands.  Nothing simply adds up.

If you have a guy who works hard and is wise in his use of money and treats people fairly and does not have a list of literally hundreds of suspicious deaths on their hands, then you probably do not have a gad on your hands.  If you see the same kind of person rise to the top quickly in a meteoric kind of way, you may have a gad on your hands.  They promote from within.  I brushed with them in high school.  They come in and pick the best of the best and put them on special tracks and they are tested to see if they will "play ball".  Those that do not (who have principles), will fall to the side.  The way these jokesters work is to get dirt on people - to ultimately control them, or steer them like a horse with a bit in it's mouth.  Those who are unimpeachable or not smart enough, they will let fall to the side.  You will notice that every one of these slimeballs is actually quite smart.  They are usually quite charismatic (until their souls are sucked out of them like Clinton and then they are cold and calculating with no warmth or light in them - or if it appears to be so, it is just fakery and the fa├žade can be easily shattered and they exposed for who they really are). 

Just like the skull and bones, they always get the dirt - and dirt trumps any attempt to leave the agenda or the group itself.  At the lower levels, it is always having the punk do a hit on someone the gang does not like - and it kind of seals the deal for the (the gangbanger does not have any out or other options, but to stay with it).  Similar language and modus operandi of the devil, and you are "sealed his".  Once the meat hooks are in deep - there is little hope of escaping.

This is the exact opposite of the way the Lord operates.  It is always an invitation to "come follow me" (with full agency intact) and teaching of correct principles.  The motivation is love and desire to please God.  The opposite is control, coercion, manipulation and fear.  For those who actually are successful at breaking free (who do not end up dead), the process is profound and a total transformation at the core is required.  It is no small thing.

Here is what Hugh Nibley had to say on the matter (and thanks to Heather at Awaken for bringing this gem to light):

"Our Book of Mormon authors speak a great deal about the secret combinations that arose among the Jaredites and among the Nephites and that were destined to arise among the Gentile nations in the last days. They tell us that these secret combinations brought to pass the destruction of the Jaredites and the Nephites and will bring similar destruction on any latter-day nations that permit them to gain an ascendancy. Writing of nations in the last days, Moroni says: 'Whatsoever ...nation shall uphold such secret combinations, to get power and gain, until they shall spread over the nation, behold, they shall be destroyed; for the Lord will not suffer that the blood of his saints, which shall be shed by them, shall always cry unto him from the ground for vengeance upon them and yet he avenge them not.' (Ether 8:22.)
"What are these secret combinations which have such powers that whole civilizations are destroyed by them? They wear many guises and appear in many forms. They were the Gadianton robbers among the Nephites, and the perpetrators of the Spanish inquisition in the dark ages. Among us they include some secret and oath-bound societies and such Mafia-like groups as engage in organized crime. They include some political parties, some revolutionists who rise up against their governments and those evil and anarchist groups which steal and kidnap and murder in the name of this or that political objective. They are always groups that seek money and power and freedom from the penalties that should attend their crimes." (Bruce R. McKonkie, The Millenial Messiah, p. 64)
"If the reader has imagined to himself the Gadianton band as abandoned wretches or street Arabs lurking in dark alleys and fleeing from the light of day in dingy and noisome hideouts, let him disabuse his mind of such a concept. They were a highly respected concern that made their handsome profits by operating strictly within the letter of the law, as they interpreted and controlled it. They were the government, the well-to-do, the respectable, and the law-abiding citizens." (Hugh Nibley, An Approach to the Book of Mormon, p. 385)
"So this is the situation: they were in office to get gain and the glory of the world, and they did everything with an eye single to their glory. They were politically, socially, and economically ambitious. They were opposed by the common people organized by Moroni, who made them conscious of themselves as the poor and humble afflicted outcasts of Israel, always calling upon the Lord. Here we have the two totally different, clearly defined ideologies; the one prevails throughout the world today and throughout ancient, medieval, and modern history." (Hugh Nibley, Approaching Zion, p. 101)

  1. I had a dream two nights ago of Hitlery. An 8 foot tall skeleton specter dressed in a black hooded cloak stood behind her. It ran it's bony fingers through her hair 4 times. She looked so cold and heartless. EASY and chilling interpretation if the dream is prophetic. Guess we'll see.

    God warned me in a dream in a most commanding voice about "all who turn the face toward Hollywood will be accountable to ME!."

    It's good counsel to abandon movies/t.v. you may be addicted to folks. Hypnotized idol worship. The less you watch, the more you wake up to God I promise.

    And get the kiddies off the Disney milky nipple. If there ever was a Gad enterprise, it's Disney. Alladin it's okay to steal an apple and then lie about it, use sorcery to change your appearance to seduce a young maiden from her bedroom at night and go for a magic carpet ride. Ariel it's okay to disobey your father who is a King, make a pact with a witch to alter your body and go have a fling with a stranger.

    Oh and it's NORMAL to depict half human half animal heroes/characters. Now let's get you the $$$ DVD collection, backpack, blanket, posters, notebook cover, figurine, because little Bobby and Betsy IDOLIZE vampires, superheroes, broom riding witches and wizards, and empowered disobedient youngsters.

    Now we'll move in to the tween/teenager Disney shows that glorify witches and wizards depict "normal" family life. Britney Spears, Selena Gomez, Justin Timberlake, and Miley Cirus were spawned from the cesspool of Disney God bless their moral role model hearts.

    My grocery store has Christmas Trees up in the SAME aisle with Halloween candy and gore. I thank God I woke up and have forsaken such things. And is my family freaked out by my choice? YES! They choose to cling to a satanic holiday and a pagan holiday. "You won't start feeling the pressure/guilt now and be involved in Black Friday stampedes and maxing out credit cards to buy me lots of STUFF this year so I can celebrate Jesus's birth on the same day as pagan baby Tamuz even though Jesus wasn't born on December 25th.?" NO! This train is leaving Babylon, get on board or be left behind!

    So, House of Israel, you who fight against the Lamb of God in the Latter Days, keep it up. You have been SEDUCED into Babylon, support and ENJOY Babylon's leaders/celebrities/pagan Easter/Christmas and products whilst worshiping God to His face and in His temple and expect NOT to be destroyed! You're just tares growing up with the wheat. A separation is soon to be.

    Look out Utah members. There's a reason you get it FIRST! You who live amidst the oracles of God and seek your own pleasure.

    The Creator of Heaven and Earth KNOWS those who truly LOVE HIM and want HIM TO BE THEIR GOD. And all shall see Him return for such. Some of the most valiant and worthy are NOT LDS. So get off the elite high horse.

    There is still time to repent and turn and face our God and walk in His commandments in total humility and servitude with joy while awaiting His return.

    HIS people turning their backs on Him and allowing the wicked to get above us and destroy us is what brings HIS judgment.

    1. Whoa! Your post started out so good and I was following you, but then it got rather harsh and judgemental with A LOT of assumptions. Some of my most spiritual experiences have come through my worship of Jesus Christ during the Christmas season. I know it is not His Birthday and I don't hold out to worship Him only during that time of the year. Nonetheless, you can find goodness and Christ in all things if you have His Spirit with you and your heart is filled with love and compassion for your fellow brothers and sisters, especially those who are lost or not yet awake.

    2. Mixing the holy and the profane will always be a "no-no". Where in the scriptures does the Lord tell us to observe Christmas and Easter? I refer you kindly to 119 Ministries You Tube teaching on the historical facts of Christmas and Easter.

      Man made Satanic PAGAN origin traditions that people cling to with white knuckles whilst offending the God of Heaven and ignoring His laws from the Torah. If you believe God is pleased with us imposing our traditions upon Him, you're wrong.

      Guess we'll see who's right when He returns. I don't recall Jesus ever celebrating HIS birthday EVER in the scriptures. I don't recall Him celebrating His Resurrection with dyed eggs. In fact, He's FASTING RIGHT NOW this very minute until He returns to partake of the Sacrament with us anew.

      So called Christians can try to force Christmas and Easter on the rest of us who see it for what they are all they want. There is NO goodness to be found in participating PAGAN worship and erecting these symbols in our homes. There is nothing right about a Christian trying to purify and make excuses for PAGAN holidays in the name of Jesus Christ.

      I wash my hands in this discussion. I don't need to participate in the Paganistic to glorify my God. My spiritual experiences come because I am a worthy instrument. Not because it's Christmas.

      I seriously don't care what anyone thinks. Only what God thinks. I absolutely feel better for having let go of Christmas and Easter.

      Thank you Heavenly Father, I gladly suffer ridicule and persecution regarding Christmas and Easter for Thy Name's sake.

  2. William Branham predicted and made some years ago concerning a powerful woman becoming prominent, and then America becoming destroyed thereafter. Also he points out the spirit of Ahab and Jezebel being in Bill and Hillary Clinton. I leave to you to judge it. With any prophetic word, we must judge it for ourselves.

    Yeah, they both lived in an ivory house, he was the leader but SHE ran the show. People were murdered for them to get gain and power. Sound familiar? The demonic influence of Ahab and Jezebel are running rampant and very real.

    Guess we'll see come November. So much is at our door it's overwhelming and we deserve everything we're getting. God help us!

  3. And now this from your local sponsor........Liz Claman/Fox Business News Network just interviewed Evan McMullin (I) from Utah who is actually CATCHING UP to Donald Trump! This guy, a former CIA officer among other things is coming on strong people! Is this a miracle? Do we really have a righteous choice in November? Could this man come out of the wood work and become the 45th president of the United States?

    WHERE has he been hiding?
    Anyone else have anything to offer/add?

    http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/how-evan-mcmullin-could-win-utah-and-the-presidency/

    And by the way, check out Liz Claman's credentials. The woman is nothing short of a dynamo in broadcast journalism with Emmy's to back it up, helps in charities that supply mortgage help for severely injured war vets, AND has finished 7 Triathlons and one NYC Marathon!

    1. Joel Skousen is very concerned about McMullin being connected with the dark side of the CIA, because of his meteoric rise with so much attention given him. I would likely agree there is likely something that stinks here.
      When I say dark side I am talking about a very compartmentalized conspiracy spread through out government with it's tentacle reaching down from the Globalists. Bill and Hillary and Obama are the most obvious, with their own meteoric rise to power out of absolute obscurity. There was absolutely nothing about about these people that would seem to make them exceptional enough to have them picked out above others.

    2. I was skeptical of Evan Mcmullin, first, when it was said he was a former CIA; but from the moment I found out he was a member of the CFR; Oh, heck no!
