Sounds like the Podesta the Molesta brothers are getting "Weinsteined" and Maddie McCann will finally get justice, Hitlery will get hers and the roots of the cypress in the swamp may just see some air as the brackish water level drops....  Man, there is so much win going on right now that I can hardly stand it!!:

Directly to jail

Oh, please.  Oh, please!!  I promise to be a good boy from now til Christmas, if I can just see the old hag in jail for what she has done.  Life is too short not to witness this sweet moment.  All of the SJWs on FB are going wild.  They know the gig is coming to a close.

Even the WSJ printed an article begging for clemency and decency for the old hag and her gadianton cronies....:

And, Trump ALWAYS trumps with the last word:

They are playing their hand left and right; people not involved in crimes do not need to beg leniency - especially by their controlled media fronts.....  The deep state WILL have to manufacture a war or a crisis of epic proportions in order to cover this up.  Kind of like the announcement by the Pentagon of a missing 1.2 Trillion dollars the day before the manufactured crisis that was 9/11.  Never let a good crisis go to waste as the corrupt sunzabees always say.

Go TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So, our HT was over on Sunday.  A really awesome young fellow that lives in our same town.

I can't remember what got us on the topic, but I started talking about how we are largely fed lies or really bad guesses, stated as fact in our screwel system.  I cannot wait til the Darwinist crowd is purged and we learn by revelation once again.

I mentioned the lie of how oil is formed (Cardston has a reserve below it that is several cubic miles in size; massive!!)   The natives (whose land Cardston lies upon) are fabulously wealthy - and they likely have no idea....

So, there is the lie of the story of mouldering dead dinos, etc.  You cannot have enough dinos die to create that much black goo.....   It is CaCO3 + H2O + Heat + Pressure + Time = CH6 + byproducts, etc  The earth is a massive bio-reactor.  It is a living organism.

The lie that the earth also creates diamonds is SO laughable to me.

Fact is, they come from collapsed stars (spheres of crystalline carbon - trillions of carats in weight) that explode and send massive amounts of this through the cosmos), which slam into spheres like ours and seed them with that material.  Some stars cycle out gold, some cycle out nickel, some cycle out lithium or silver.  Much of the material we have obtained on our planet comes from outside it.  I have talked about the copper of upstate Michigan that ended up being mined by the Jaredites, taken to the Holy Land by the Pheonicians and used in the pillars of Boaz and Joachim in the Solomonic Temple.  We know it is the same copper, because the coins from that era have the same copper (spectroscopy signature) from the float copper found in the impact crater of upstate Michigan.  When the relative soft copper impacts the harder iron, it creates a relatively shallow crater and the ejecta is piled up on the banks of the impact crater.  The Jaredites found car-sized boulders and copper fused with the local rock and pulled it out en-masse.  It is still considered the world's greatest free-copper site ever. 

Stuff that impacted early in the earth's formation and was incorporated into the crust, has come to the surface via volcanic action fracture zones in the crust (such as the Bingham complex in Utah) and the Butte, MT complex.  The peppering of the surface with water and with large masses of minerals in the Temple Endowment films, is correct.

The whole diamond thing is no different - except diamond is incredibly hard and it drills down through the crust, melting the native rock and shatters (more at the top of the cone and lesser as the speed and mass of the impacting diamond mass slows) as it nears the end of it's intergalactic travel.  The best examples of this type of thing are the two diamond mines in Canada.  Impact crater on the surface of the earth which filled with water and became unassuming lakes, ejecta with little or no diamond in them (typical of matierals of lesser hardness) - but a deep inverted conical structure with less and less diamond as you go deeper into the earth.  The kimberlite is not magma - but instantaneously melted, then re-formed mantle rock; infused with the shattered impact medium.

Schematic cross section of an underground region 3 km deep and 2 km wide. A red dike stretches across the bottom, and a pipe containing some xenoliths runs from the dike to the surface, varying from red at the bottom to orange-yellow at the top. The pipe's root, at its bottom, is about 1 km long, and its diatreme, above the root, is about 1.5 km long. The pipe's top is a crater, rimmed by a tuff ring and containing washed-back ejecta. The erosion level is almost zero for Orapa, about 1 km for Jagersfontein, and about 1.4 km for Kimberley. THIS is reality.  Not the fable that is taught in "science" books.

They are not hunks of coal that get cycled thousands of feet down, converted to diamond, and then spit out in a volcanic event.  I just shake my head at that notion.

If you bring me this one wish in my stocking this year:


Sounds like the old hag is going down.  The DNC is even distancing itself from the old murdress.

Heck, it would make even a better treat on Halloween to see the old witch a swingin' from the tree.  I am sure every SJW would be triggered by it - but, some things are just simply in order.  We could make it a belated b-day present after she turns 70 tomorrow..... 

Whatever happened to that year??  A lot of bad apples have emerged from it.  Not sure if it had anything to do with the 100 year anno of Brigham Young striking the cane, or what....  But sheesh!!


Truly, this is a phenomenon with many people.

I have a co-worker whose husband died after she just about died several times, after her surgery for gangrene in the gut AFTER she had told me I was full of hoo-hoo for believing in a God, AFTER I asked her the question prior to her surgery, if she was prepared to meet God, IF she was one of the ones who did NOT make it successfully through surgery (apparently about 1 in 10,000).

Anyway, her husband appeared to her several times in a like manner and gave many signs from the other side that he is there and that there is life after death.  I will take it down as one of the most bizarre work experiences - hearing her testify that she knows there is a God and that there is more after death - AFTER her callous smackdown of me two years prior to that, for being so stupid and naive to believe in a God.

One more testimony from a different person, with near identical reports:

If you feel so moved speak to him from your heart. He will hear you. Those who have crossed over hear us when we speak to them. 
There are no obstacles to love in the Universe. 
My beloved wife of over 31 years crossed over a month shy 4 years ago. She had had brain tumors for 13 years which finally killed her. She refused all chemo and radiation and only worked with spiritual healers and every few years would need surgery to debulk the tumors regrowth. The doctors were angry that she wouldn't do chemo and radiation but she was adamant. At the end the docs told me no one has lived as long as she did with no deficits (except epilepsy for which she never took enough to stop the seizures which stressed me out no end) and that they now will have to rewrite their text books and re-think their protocols. 
There are no obstacles to love in the Universe. 
Immediately she began waking me up at night calling my name...I would sit up and talk to her and tell her how much I loved and missed her. A day or two later I woke up and was sick to my stomach and threw up in the bathroom sink...suddenly as if she were closely beside me I heard her clearly ask me if I was all right. I told her I was...
There are no obstacles to love in the Universe. 
On Christmas day a month after she crossed over I was meditating out at my sister's home as I was in no mood to be festive or really even to see anyone. Suddenly my wife Faith appeared before me standing looking so beautiful and told me, "I'll wait for you." I will never need another Christmas present again in this lifetime. 
There are no obstacles to love in the Universe. 
She continued to visit me for a time but she knew she needed to move on and has..after her passing I told her to go as high as she could and that I would be OK without her, even though I'm not really and miss her since I am awake in the dream/spirit worlds I go see her very often. She is on a very high plane now much higher than my other family who have crossed over. It takes a lot of energy for me to travel to where she is now among the angels. 
There are no obstacles to love in the Universe. 
Anyone can learn to do this and I have taught my best friend who lost his only child 3 weeks after I lost my wife...he has been able to have conscious contact with his daughter which has helped him some...
There are no obstacles to love in the Universe.
I also had a difficult relationship with my father and was frankly relieved when he crossed over...soon I noticed he was still around me...I have made peace with that now...
There are no obstacles to love in the Universe. 
peace and blessing to you and your family...

Great quote:

This is interesting commentary:

This year on Halloween is the same day as the DAY OF ATONEMENT which is also the day Noah's Flood began. Many have reasoned that The Lord's Feast days are one month off this year. They say the barley was not ripe before Passover this past spring and we should have added an extra month to the Hebrew Calendar. For that reason, The Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur will begin the evening of the 30th of October and go to the evening of the 31st...Halloween. Because the Hebrew calendar called for The Lord's Feast days to begin last month, they are not watching this time for Yom Kippur BUT will remember that day as the start of Noah's Flood and the beginning of God's judgment on the earth. Either way, watching or not, that day holds significance.
If you go to Genesis chapter 7, we are given the account of Noah and told that God told Noah's family to go into the Ark 7 days BEFORE the flood began and God shut the door. We are given the exact day that Noah's flood began...the 17th day of the 2nd month. Genesis 7:11-12 "In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month—on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights."
The 17th day of the 2nd month on the Hebrew Calendar is also HALLOWEEN this year which coincides with The DAY OF ATONEMENT/Yom Kippur. Moses was given the start of God's calendar to begin 14 days before Passover but in the days of Noah, the calendar from Creation was counted at the time of Rosh Hoshana or Feast of Trumpets. That is why there are two "New Years" on the Hebrew Calendar and why this month is the second month on the Creation calendar according to Hebrew tradition. Having already celebrated Yom Kippur last month, God's people will be caught off guard...not to mention every blind Christian that will be celebrating the highest pagan holiday of Halloween here in America!! 
Jesus described His coming "as in the days of Noah". If that description can be taken literally, then THIS EVENING marks the start of the 7 days BEFORE the 17th day of the 2nd month, THE DAY GOD SHUT THE DOOR ON NOAH'S ARK! For those watching with me, that should get your heart racing a bit! 
Jesus said He would come for His Bride on a day no one expects! Since Halloween is the highest pagan holiday, that day would be least expected for His return! He can come at any time before or after. I am not setting a date for His return but am simply watching. If you think about it, the pagans chose Halloween as their most sacred day because, as they put it, it is the day when the "veil is the thinnest"! That can work both ways!
One more thing to add for those, like myself, that believe Obama will return as the antichrist. Obama will kick off the "FIRST GLOBAL SUMMIT IN CHICAGO" this month. I will give you one guess as to which day this global summit begins...if you guessed HALLOWEEN/DAY OF ATONEMENT/DAY OF NOAH'S FLOOD, you guessed right! Why is he trying so hard to stay relevant when every other ex-president takes a step back? Makes you wonder!

If this is indeed the time for the return of Our Savior and all the signs point to this Season, then Jesus Christ is coming back for His Bride and He will Harvest His Children - "The Wheat" - during the following 40 days with His Warrior Bride! Just as Noah's flood lasted 40 days and 40 nights, so will this Harvest period be. The tares will be harvested as well but for destruction. 
Please pray that you are found on GOD'S SIDE! Pray and ask God to search your hearts! Make sure you are right with Our Creator and Savior! This is not about religion but about an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ/YahuShua Ha Mashiach. He loves you so much that He gave His life to buy you back from death! Turn to Him now and be saved! He promises that ALL who call on the Name of YahuShua/ Jesus Christ will be saved! {"for Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Romans 10:13}

Great quotes:

When God first made man upon the earth, he was a different being entirely to what he now is; his body was strong, athletic, robust, and healthy; his days were prolonged upon the earth; he lived nearly one thousand years, his mind was vigorous and active, and his intellectual faculties clear and comprehensive, but he has become degenerated . . . . Man is not now that dignified, noble, majestic, honorable and mighty being that he was when he first proceeded from the hands of his Maker . . . . (the Lord) has appointed the word of wisdom as one of the engines to . . . . remove the beastly appetites, the murderous disposition and the vitiated taste of man; to restore his body to health, and vigor, promote peace between him and the brute creation . . . . - Hyrum Smith, Times and Season, 6-1-1842, pp.799-800By a proper observance of the Word of Wisdom, man may hope to regain what he has lost by transgression and live to the age of a tree, that as the sun's rays in springtime gladden all nature and awaken life and hope, the Word of Wisdom given of God may remove the thorns and briers from our pathway and strew the same with joy and peace. - Joseph Smith, Joseph Smith as a Prophet, Scrapbook of Mormon Literature, Vol 1, p.118


Joseph’s Coat of Many Marks

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

Diego Velázquez, Joseph’s Bloody Coat Brought to Jacob; 1630, Oil on canvas, Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial
Genesis 37 recounts the story of when Jacob gave a special coat to his son Joseph, which was said to have “many colours.” Later, Joseph was sold into Egypt by his brothers, his coat stripped from him, and returned to his father Jacob. Hugh Nibley gives us some interesting insight into this episode, and the special coat that Jacob gave Joseph. Apparently, Andrew Lloyd Webber was mistaken, as well as a number of other modern commentators:
The idea of a garment of many colors is an invention. If you look in your Bible every time it mentions many colors the word colors (even in the commentary) is in italics [the word in italics is actually many] because it is put in there by modern editors. It’s found in no ancient source. It’s not a garment of many colors at all. A garment of certain marks is the term that’s used here. We’ll see what it is in a second. “This garment had belonged to Abraham, and it already had a long history.” It’s history was lengthy because it went back to the Garden of Eden, you see. That’s the garment; it’s the only one. Just as we treat the story of Cain and Abel, we trivialize this. We say, “Joseph was the youngest kid, so his father favored him and gave him a pretty garment of many colors.” There is no mention in any ancient source of a garment of many colors. That’s an invention of modern editors trying to explain it. But here it was the garment he gave him. It was the garment of the priesthood. No wonder they were jealous of him, they being the elder brothers and he the younger in the patriarchal line coming down from Abraham. This garment had belonged to Abraham and had come down to Joseph instead of to the other brethren.1
When Joseph’s brethren returned to give the coat back to Jacob, other ancient documents and literature as well as understanding the meaning of the source languages help us understand what happened next:
Here we have “I detect, I perceive, I note.” (He’s blind, you see.) “the odor, the spirit, the smell of Joseph, if you do not think me out of my head from old age and a bit barmy.” It talks about the spirit that is in it, the east wind that has brought it, etc. And this is a very important thing: “When they placed it upon the face of Jacob, he smelled also the smell of the Garden of Eden. For behold there is not in all the earth another garment that has that smell in it.” This is a unique thing; this is the garment.“For there is not in any other garment on earth of the winds of the garden of Eden, unless it is in this one garment.” So you can see why the brethren were so jealous; it was the garment of the priesthood. The commentator says he recognized that it was Joseph’s garment by feeling it first because it had three marks in it.
What they translate as “coat of many colors” is first ketonet. Our word cotton is related to that. Ketonet is a cotton shirt. The Hebrew is ketonet passim. That means it reached down to his wrists and his ankles. The Hebrew actually tells us that it was of adequate length. A garment which is passim means a long garment which reaches down to the wrists and to the ankles. It’s quite different [from the other story]; there’s no mention of color there of any kind. The Vulgate says it was tunicam polymitam, which means it was worked very subtly with extra threadsPolymitanmeans “extra thread work, special embroidery, special technique.” The Greek is chitona poikilaPoikilos means “tatooed, embroidered, elaborate work.” A derived term of poikila is “of various colors, with spots or dots.” But it means with marks on something. Here it says he knew it because it had three marks on it. He recognized it from the marks. Of course, they couldn’t have been colored marks because he was blind when he felt the marks. He recognized it as belonging to his son Joseph.2
Where Nibley says that Jacob recognized it because it had three marks on it, he is quoting from a man commonly known as Thaclabi. Nibley introduces him:
In the tenth century of our era the greatest antiquarian of the Moslem world, Muhammad ibn-Ibrahim ath-Tha’labi, collected in Persia a great many old tales and legends about the prophets of Israel.3
Nibley’s translation of Thaclabi is:
“and there were in the garment of Joseph three marks or tokens when they brought it to his father.”4

Oh, please, oh please let it be true!!!

Sounds like her whole Trump/Russia thing literally back-fired....  I cannot stress enough over those who falsely accuse others of bunk that they are not involved in either have a mental illness or they are simply projecting their own ridiculous behavior onto others.  It sounds like her Clinton Foundation (I would call it the Clinton extortion scam), got around $200 cool millions from the uranium scandal.  They were laundering money like it is after a Chinese Ragnar...:

This lady is spot on:

It was interesting her research on the 8.0 that hit the Dead Sea fault line.  That would have been a doozy!

Sunday, October 15, 2017


I can honestly say that I have been in the pit many times.  I have always managed to trust in God and power my way out.  I have watched my good wife do the same.  Seems like her pits are more profound.  The deeper the trial, the greater the blessing on the other side of the trial. 

God gives NOTHING away for free.  Neither salvation, nor forgiveness (just saying your accept Jesus and are saved does not cut it - for some of the delusional BACs out there...).  Anything of value - anything worth having is usually preceded by an Abrahamic Test.  If we fold and shrivel (raise the fist to curse God, wishing to die), then we have failed the test.  If we come out shining and stronger from the experience, then all is well.  I have many short-sided loved ones and friends who say that God is a sadist, or that "no God would allow such terrible things to happen".  Sadly for them, their short-sightedness just bought them bitterness and pain instead of growth and perspective.

We ALL signed up for our trials (beyond the ones we have brought upon ourselves, by sins of commission and sins of omission).  Looking at Jesus' ultimate sacrifice without perspective, one would wonder what kind of sadistic Father we all have in common.  Until the perspective is given that He VOLUNTEERED for that role.  So did we for many of our trials.  My wife is of the opinion that the Judases and black sheep of the world may be playing a role.  I would say not.  Nor the evil one and the third of the host of our former brothers and sisters who rebelled against good principle and went their own way against the better counsel and light.

If we have tragedy or pain in our own lives, due to sin (such as an out-of-wedlock pregnancy), then the "punishment fits the crime", so to speak.  My MIL, for example, ended up having to get married to a male who ended up being a pedophile and philanderer.  A bad choice led to very bad consequences which she has paid dearly for all of the remainder of her life.  For some time, she had tried to right that foundering ship by gospel participation and the living and seeking after good principles, but the keel of that ship had a fatal flaw from the beginning and it ended up going down to the bottom in breathtaking fashion.  An entire family has suffered as a result of those decisions and the following train of events that ensued.  So - when we are in the pit, we have to ask ourselves, "
Am I in this pit by directive of a loving Heavenly Father who wants me to turn this around and repent and change my life for the better?  Or, am I in the pit, so that I may be chastened for my lack of attention to good principle?".  It is either ONE or the OTHER.  Sometimes, a combination of both.  Only we know the real answer.  So, when we see someone in distress, we are NOT to judge them, because the particular pit they may be in, may be due to some of their own doing, or due to an agreement they had made premortally in order to bring true growth to their spirits.  No one in their right mind, knowing the Christian narrative, would judge that Jesus was hanging on the cross due to his own "poor action" etc.  The thieves next to Him, possibly - but not him.

Here is a great meme that got me spun up:

Studies in Revelation
My thoughts on the 'Half Hour of Silence'.... Up until the year 2000, the Apostles were giving powerful talks that often spoke of 'preparing for the great and dreadful day of the Lord'.... then, for the most part, those types of talks stopped and the Apostles began speaking of "Faith, Hope & Charity".
We find the same pattern in the Book of Mormon.
I have heard many ask in frustration - and have repeatedly asked myself over the past decade "Why is the church not emphasizing preparedness much anymore? Why are they not shouting at us from the pulpits like they used to? We are even closer now to the Second Coming than we were 20 years ago... why are they not speaking much of it anymore?"
DUH! because we are in the half hour of silence... He told us and told us and told us - now he is waiting to see if we will do what He asked without Him having to tell us what He already told us....
When you read Revelation, you see that in chpt 7, Elias is holding back the destroying angels until the saints are prepared (as much as they will be) and temples dot the land.
Then you read of a Temple Dedication where ALL would attend.(April 6, 2000 Palmyra)
Then immediately after that in 8:1 the Seventh Seal is opened and the half hour of silence begins.
Continuing in chpt 8, you see that the angels are unloosed to begin the destruction.... but not yet the Tribulations... those will be the last part of the half hour of silence, and possibly an additional 3 1/2 years after the silence ends. (depending on which timeline is correct)
In Rev 11:19 we are seeing the 144K beginning to understand the mysteries as 'heaven is opened'. The Eclipse happened Aug 21.... here is vs 19:And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament (revelation flowing to the awake saints. The ark of the covenant is aka The Ark of the Testament):... and then after the Eclipse – or this sign of heaven - this began: " and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail."… all of which happened in that 5 weeks before the Rev 12 sign…
Then in Rev 12 - the Sign of the Woman in the Sky on Sept 23.... the 144K are prepared. Michael and Satan have a war over these - Satan says they are not perfect enough to be Translated - Michael kicks him back out of heaven. Then Satan knowing he cannot stop these 'awake and prepared saints' from their destiny of becoming the 144K, he makes war on the woman - which is the Church and the remnant of her seed which were not prepared. *
Chpt 13 – Hang ON! Satan’s power of deception will be ramping up. The Anti Christ should soon be revealed. Things will get much worse than they are now with the evil that will cover the earth.
Chpt 14 – HURRAY for Christ! He has come to the earth and stands with the 144K – which will be from among us… they will have been here working among us.. they will be many of us… Have you felt to sing the song of Redeeming Love as spoken in vs.3? I do not know the words – but when you feel it, it feels different than any other time when you have felt exceeding joy – more intense, more pure… it is amazing.
NOW in 14:6 HERE is where the 144K go out to fulfill the prophecy of teaching ALL Nations, Tongues & People… it is the 144K that will complete this prophecy – NOT the regular missionaries who have been laying the ground work and building the Church…. the missionaries will be called home as it get too dangerous for them to go out and the 144K/Translated/Terrestrial men and women will take over this final gathering during the worst of the Tribulations as people repent and turn back to God.
** Many members are waiting for the prophecy of ‘every ear to hear’ to be fulfilled – but it will not be fulfilled by our missionaries… the world will be in such turmoil, that the everyday member will likely not even know when it has been fulfilled. When they get called home – that might wake up more of our members…. Let’s hope.
Chpt 15 – we see that these 144K are still in constant communication with the heavens – (in Rev12 we are told that the Lord would rule with a rod of Iron – meaning DIRECT REVELATION to the 144K) more plagues….. then at the end of 15:8, we see that the temples will be closed for a season…. Daniel also prophecies of this.
…. During all this time, the number of the 144K will grow as more become worthy of Translation/Terrestrial. The New Jerusalem will be under construction. Therein will be a place of Refuge and safety… but members must have qualified for C&E to enter. Meanwhile other places of refuge will be set up where the saints will be safe IF THEY ARE LISTENING from the worst of it …..


Wow - I was checking for more than the casual glance for signs of fake news.  This IS indeed from NASA.GOV and it is official stuff. 

They are admitting that there is a possible ninth interloper that "comes home for dinner" every once in a while and that it does mess with the nice and ordered workings of our solar system.

This sure gives a lot of what I and Sitchin and other theorists have been saying, some serious traction.  I have to wonder how this ties into the earth's earlier history (portions being broken off and then coming back, as we all know they will prior to the Second Coming):

I will try and dig up more on this.  Where there is smoke, there is often fire.


From the Journal of Discourses:


Natural Fulfillment of Prophecy—The Israelites and the Gentiles

Discourse by Elder George Q. Cannon, delivered at Hyde Park, Sunday Evening, November 2nd, 1879.
Reported by Geo. F. Gibbs.
George Q. Cannon
264 pdf
I will read a portion of a revelation given through the Prophet Joseph Smith, previous to the organization of the Church, dated April, 1829: “Oliver Cowdery, verily, verily, I say unto you, that assuredly as the Lord liveth, who is your God and your Redeemer, even so surely shall you receive a knowledge of whatsoever things you shall ask in faith, with an honest heart, believing that you shall receive a knowledge concerning the engravings of old records, which are ancient, which contain those parts of my scripture of which has been spoken by the manifestation of my Spirit. Yea, behold, I will tell you in your mind and in your heart, by the Holy Ghost, which shall come upon you and which shall dwell in your heart. Now, behold, this is the spirit of revelation; behold, this is the spirit by which Moses brought the children of Israel through the Red Sea on dry ground.”
The point I wish to call your attention to is contained in the second and third verses of this revelation. 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, sometimes, erroneous ideas, or, at least, exaggerated ideas, in relation to them. The prophets have foretold the events that should take place in connection with this work. There is one prophecy that comes to my mind, recorded by Isaiah and Micah, respecting the building of the house of God in the top of the mountains and the gathering of the people there, and the object for which they should gather, that they should come up and be taught of the Lord, etc. Now it might be supposed that when that prediction would be fulfilled it would be so prominent and remarkable in the midst of the nations of the earth,
265 pdf
that all the inhabitants thereof who should witness it would say, “This is the fulfillment of the predictions of Isaiah and Micah.” And it might be thought that all the inhabitants of the earth who witnessed it would be convinced of the truth of it, and would say, “We have no further opposition to this work, because we behold the fulfillment of the predictions of those holy prophets whom we have been taught to regard, and whose writings we have read as authority from God.
And, doubtless, there are many of the Latter-day Saints who have thought, in the early days of their experience in this Church, when they have heard the elders predict concerning the great events that should take place in connection with this work—they have thought and felt in their hearts that when the wicked and those who oppose this work should see the fulfillment of these predictions they would be constrained to acknowledge that this is the work of God, and would cease from hostility and opposition, and would say they had been mistaken. For instance, the elders in the early days of this Church, predicted concerning calamities and wars and troubles of various kinds that would come upon the inhabitants of the earth. There was a revelation given to the Prophet Joseph Smith, in December, 1832, concerning the war that should take place between the Southern States and the Northern States. This was a definite prediction, stating the exact point where a certain trouble or rebellion or division in the nation should take place. Most of us who have been brought up in the Church knew about this revelation from early days. It has been published so that all the members of the Church, and the world also, could have it, and it was but reason-
able to expect that so definite a prophecy as this, which stated the exact character of the difficulty that should take place between the south and the north, and that also stated with such definiteness the exact point where the division should occur—I say it was but reasonable to expect that when it should be fulfilled, it would have the effect of convincing unbelievers of the truth of the mission of Joseph Smith, and that he really was a man inspired of the Lord to speak the word of God to the people.
In 1860, Brothers Orson Pratt, Erastus Snow, myself, and others, were going on missions, and we arrived at Omaha in the month of November of that year. A deputation of the leading citizens of that city came to our camp and tendered to us the use of the Court House, as they wished to hear our principles. The invitation was accepted, and Elder Pratt preached to them. During the service, there was read the revelation to which I have referred—the revelation concerning the division between the South and the North. The reason probably, for reading it was that when we reached Omaha, the news came that trouble was already brewing, and several States were threatening to secede from the Union. Its reading made considerable impression upon the people. A good many had never heard of it before, and quite a number were struck with the remarkable character of the prophecy. It might have been expected, naturally speaking and looking at it as men naturally do, that the reading of such a revelation, at such a time, when the crisis was approaching, would have had the effect to direct men's attention to it, and they would be led to investigate its truth and the doctrines of the Church and the found-

ation we had for our belief. But if there were any converted in that audience I am not aware of it. Good seed was sown, but we did not remain to see what effect it produced. The revelation being so remarkable, and the events then transpiring being so corroborative of its truth, one might naturally think, as there were present on that occasion the leading and thinking portion of that community, that a great number would have been impressed with the probability of its truth, and would have investigated and joined the Church. You doubtless remember it was for a good while doubtful whether the rebellion should commence at South Carolina or not. I was in England at the time, and was engaged in publishing the Millennial Star, and took a great deal of notice of the American papers, and I well remember that to all human appearances it seemed for a while as though the trouble would break out at Fort Pickens, Florida. But the word of God had been spoken concerning that event, and consequently it had to be fulfilled as predicted, and the war did commence at South Carolina. It was fulfilled, as you all know, to the very letter, Fort Sumter being the place where the rebellion broke out.
Now, I allude to that, in connection with this subject, to show you that not only is the world mistaken in its views respecting the fulfillment of the predictions of the prophets, but even Latter-day Saints have doubtless, in many instances, entertained erroneous views respecting the fulfillment of revelation and prophecies of the Bible. I have no doubt there are many here tonight, who have had some experience in this, and can look back at times in their own lives, when they have thought: “Surely when these things which the prophets have foretold
are brought to pass, the people will be convinced. My friends who now ridicule me will then be convinced, and they will be forced to confess that I did right in embracing the Gospel.”
No doubt there are some in this audience tonight who have had these ideas, and certainly there are good reasons for entertaining them. But experience has taught us that, while there may be a few who, when they have seen the predictions fulfilled, have acknowledged that our course is right, in the majority of cases throughout the earth where the Gospel has been preached, the fulfillment of the predictions of the prophets has not had the effect to convince the people of the truth of the ministry God has given unto us.
Even with this experience in the past, the Latter-day Saints themselves are not entirely divested of extravagant views respecting the effects which are likely to follow the fulfillment of predictions yet in the future. 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
267 pdf
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 refer you again to that prophecy of Isaiah and Micah, respecting the gathering together of the Israel of God from the various nations to Zion. As we read of that in the Bible, we might think when that was fulfilled it would be done with such supernatural manifestations that the people would be constrained to acknowledge it was the work of God. Yet we see it every day. Our people are gathering, and men and women who emigrate bear testimony to the friends they leave behind, in almost the exact language that the prophets said they would, and yet it is not thought very extraordinary. Why is this? Because it has come along so naturally. And so with the great events that will take place in the future; they will come along in so natural a manner, the Lord will bring them to pass in such a way that they will not be accepted by the people, except by those who can comprehend the truth, as the fulfillment of the predictions of the prophets. It requires the Spirit of God to enable men and women to understand the things of God; it requires
the Spirit of God to enable the people to comprehend the work of God and to perceive his movements and providences among the children of men. The man who is destitute of the Spirit of God cannot comprehend the work of God. A woman whose mind has not been enlightened by that Spirit, cannot see or comprehend any of these events that take place in fulfillment of the prophecies of the holy prophets.
You take two persons, one who has the Spirit of God, whose mind is enlightened by that Spirit—the spirit of revelation, the same spirit, that rested upon the prophets who wrote the revelations and prophecies we have—you take a man of that kind, and then take another who has none of that spirit, and put the two together, and the one man's eyes will be open to see the hand of God in all these events; he will notice his movements and his providence in everything connected with his work and they will be testimonies to him to strengthen his faith and to furnish his mind with continual reasons for giving thanks to and worshipping God; while the man, who has not the Spirit of God, will see nothing Godlike in the occurrences: nothing which he will view as supernatural (as many suppose everything which exhibits God's power to be), or nothing which he will accept as a fulfillment of prophecies; his eyes will be closed, his heart will be hardened, and to all the evidences of the divinity of these things he will be impenetrable.
To those who have mingled with the world, the reasons for this are very plain. Men do not believe in these days in the direct interposition of God in the affairs of men. If they even believe in God, they believe that he governs the universe by great natural laws. When, there-
268 pdf
fore, a great and wonderful event occurs, they seek for its origin and explanation in some natural law. They ignore the fact that God works through natural laws; but seem to think that if he were to interpose at all, it would be by manifesting his power through the suspension of natural laws, by overriding and violating them, and in such a supernatural manner that mankind would be compelled to acknowledge it was his act, as they would be utterly unable to account for it by any laws known to them, or in any other way than as being through his power. Wars, famines, pestilences, cyclones, earthquakes, and the great variety of calamities which God has said shall be poured out upon the wicked nations, are therefore looked upon by men generally in these days as the results of certain well-defined and easily explained causes. When any of these calamities visit a city or a nation they immediately commence to investigate the laws which govern them, and by the violation of which they assert they are produced; and when they discover what they allege is the cause, they triumphantly point to it, and that is sufficient proof that the Lord has nothing special to do with it; for if it were a visitation from him, it is supposed it would be so supernatural as to be inexplicable. And thus men go on, hardening their hearts and denying God's power, until they will be so completely given over to the evil one, that he will lead them captive according to his will.
My reason for calling your attention to the word of the Lord I have read to you is, that I have sometimes thought that our people do not appreciate as they should do the spirit of revelation, the spirit of prophecy, the power of God, that has been poured out upon us as a people.
The fact seems to be overlooked that it was in the manner in which the Lord tells Oliver Cowdery that Moses brought the children of Israel through the Red Sea on dry ground. The Lord said to Oliver: “I will tell you in your mind and in your heart, by the Holy Ghost, which shall come upon you, and which shall dwell in your heart. Now, behold, this is the spirit of revelation; behold, this is the spirit by which Moses brought the children of Israel through the Red Sea on dry ground.” How many of the Latter-day Saints are there who understand that this is the way in which Moses led the children of Israel so miraculously? How many are there who think that if we had a man like Moses among us, the people would be led differently and with greater manifestations of power than they are? How many are there who are dissatisfied with what God is doing at present, and are looking for some one to appear in the future who shall exhibit convincing and overwhelming manifestations of power? How many are there at the present time who are neglecting the precious and inestimable gift of revelation which God has bestowed upon his people, because it does not come to them in the way to suit their preconceived notions and ideas—or who are not suited with the way the Church has been and is led, because there is not that wonderful degree of power exhibited which they imagine should be?
Apostates have asserted that there was not the power in the leaders of the Church which there should be. They said so during the life of the Prophet Joseph, asserting that he was a fallen prophet. After his death they made the same statements respecting President Young, his counselors, and the Twelve Apostles. And, if I am not mistaken, there are

some members of the Church who have appeared to think that there has been some power lacking, and have manifested a feeling of restlessness, anticipating the rising of someone who should have greater authority than at present exists. While I would not wish to detract from the reasonable expectations of my brethren and sisters upon this or any other point, my view is that the apostleship, now held in this Church, embodies all the authority bestowed by the Lord upon man in the flesh. Yet I believe that the power of God will be increased among us, that we will have manifestations of his power such as we never have before witnessed. For the day of God's power in the redemption of Zion will come. But I do not expect that to come upon us all of a sudden. I expect that it will be the natural result of the natural growth of the people in the things of God. I expect that we will go on step by step from one degree of knowledge, and of power, and of faith to another, until we shall be prepared to receive all the Lord has in store for us and be prepared to enter into that glory promised to the faithful Saints. The Lord has given unto his people and to his church every gift and every qualification and every key which is necessary to lead this people into the celestial kingdom of our father and our God. There is nothing wanting. When the Lord restored the Apostleship to the earth he restored all the power that was possible for a human being to hold in the flesh. When he restored the keys of the holy priesthood unto his servant Joseph, when he gave unto him the sealing powers, when he gave unto him the endowments and the keys of the holy priesthood associated therewith, when the Prophet Joseph received the keys from Elijah, and from all
the prophets that had existed upon the earth from the beginning down—each one, as he says himself in one of his epistles—each one in his dispensation coming forward and bestowing upon him the authority pertaining thereto, there was embodied in him all the priesthood they held, and he bestowed upon his fellow Apostles all the priesthood he exercised and all the power and authority bestowed upon mortal man to exercise here upon the earth, so far as the present is concerned; that is, all the keys of the priesthood and everything that is necessary in this preparatory state, and to make man a fit subject for the celestial kingdom of God. By the command of the Lord he conferred that authority upon his fellow servants to bind upon earth and it should be bound in heaven, to seal the children to the father and the mother, and to seal the wife to the husband, and to weld all the links necessary in order to complete the salvation of all the children of men from the days of Adam down to our day, and also to prepare men and women for the future that lies before us, the millennium to which we are all hastening. Who can conceive of any power that was lacking? Who had power to promise unto man that they should be kings and priests unto God? And in addition to that, who had the power to seal upon them the actual kingly and priestly dignity and confirm upon them the fulness of it, and also to give them promises respecting the Godhead that should be fulfilled upon them, and if faithful, to come forth in the morning of the first resurrection? Now, there was nothing lacking, and there was no power, there was no gift, there was no authority, there were no keys lacking, and these keys have been handed down through

him. Others may have claimed to have had them. We have had Strang, John E. Page, William Smith, Gladden Bishop, and a host of others; each has claimed to have received that authority, either through Joseph Smith or from some other source. Some have claimed that Joseph was a fallen prophet; and some have set up one claim and some another. But the fact remains that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as it is organized in these mountains, has had the apostleship; that the men who have stood at our head, President Young and the Twelve Apostles, whose President at the death of the Prophet Joseph he was, actually received under the hands of the Prophet Joseph, every key, and power, and authority that he himself possessed, and that they actually did take hold and complete the temple he started, and endowed their fellow servants therein with the same authority and the same priestly and kingly dignity that they had received from under his hands. And from that time to the present this work has gone forth with might and power, and the power of God has attended the labors of his servants who have been sent forth by these apostles, chosen by revelation to take charge of this work; everything they have done, God has blessed. They have gathered the people together, they have led the people, they have been delivered by the mighty power of God when it seemed that they would be overwhelmed by opposing influences. They have gathered the people together from the nations of the earth in fulfillment of the predictions of the holy prophets. Not only that, but they have laid the foundations of temples here; one temple, at least, has been completed, while three others are in process of erection,
which we hope will soon be completed, into which buildings the Saints of God can enter and receive their endowments, receive their washings and anointings and sealings and ordinances, and have the keys of the holy priesthood bestowed upon them, which they can exercise in the right way for the building up of the work of God. And this is the work of God, although men may say there has been no supernatural manifestation of power, such as some suppose ought to attend his work. This work has gone forth with a rapidity and impetus that has been irresistible, and there is no power able to stand against it. It has gone forward to the fulfillment of all that has been spoken thus far concerning it, that is as far as we have gone. And the people have received the Holy Ghost, they have been filled with it, they have been filled with the spirit of revelation. The same spirit of revelation that Moses had, concerning which God speaks through the Prophet Joseph Smith, has rested upon men that have held the keys of this kingdom, whether it was during President Young's life or at the present time—that same spirit of revelation rests upon him who holds the presidency as senior apostle in the midst of the people of God. The apostles of this Church have all the authority, they have all the keys, and it is within the purview of their office and calling to have all the spirit of revelation necessary to lead this people into the presence of the Lamb in the celestial kingdom of our God.
I have desired to say this much, because I have felt at times there was a feeling among some people that there was not that manifestation of power, neither was there that authority wielded by the men who preside over this Church and king-

dom that should be.
But it is the truth, that the same spirit of revelation that rested upon Moses, and which enabled him to lead the children of Israel through the Red Sea, rests upon the servants of God in the midst of this people, and you will find it so to your entire satisfaction if you will listen to their counsels and be guided by them. Does God reveal himself to his servants now? I know he does. The same spirit that rested upon Joseph—the same spirit that rested upon Moses, I know it is in the midst of the Latter-day Saints—precisely the same spirit. But then we are a nation of Gentiles. We who have come here, what are we? We are called from the Gentile nations. The promises are not made to us that are made to people who are the unmixed descendants of Israel. In many respects, when they come into the covenant and are baptized, and the power of God rests upon them, you will see a different work than you see at the present time. It is just as much as we, with our Gentile traditions—an inheritance we have received from our fathers, which have come down through generations—it is as much as many of us can do, with all the power we can exercise, to remain in the Church.
I was speaking with Brother Simpson Molen this evening, who, as you know has lately returned from a mission to the Sandwich Islands. It is now 29 years since the Gospel was introduced to the people of that country. I labored there for four or five years, and was the first to preach the Gospel to them in their language in this generation. During my experience among that people, a red skinned race, I never knew a man, because of transgression or anything else, after he
received the truth—I never knew one of them to turn around and fight this cause in the manner that we witness men doing among our race. How is it with the Gentiles, the race of which we are a part? When a man gets a testimony from God and falls into transgression he is almost immediately seized with the spirit of murder. He wants to shed the blood of innocence. He wants to kill the servants of God, is full of bitterness and hatred, and seeks to find vent for his wicked passions. We have seen this spirit manifested in our history among our own race. But here is a people who receive strong testimonies concerning the Gospel, and from all that I can learn there has not been an instance of a man's turning around and bitterly fighting this work. There seems to be a natural receptiveness about them to receive the truth. The Indians will be the same in my opinion. You will find the same peculiarity, you will find them ready to receive the truth, and they will cleave to the truth. It is difficult for the Gentiles to receive the truth. It will be easier for them, because unto them are the promises. I look for a very different condition of things when these races come into the church and are brought into the covenant, I expect then to see the work accomplished by a power that we do not witness just now. But it is not because something is lacking in the organization or in the authority of the priesthood. We have, as I have said, all that is necessary, and we have this spirit of which I have spoken and which is alluded to in this revelation—the same spirit of revelation which reveals to us that which we should do and the course we should take in order to please the Lord and in order to build up his kingdom, and this Church will al-

ways be led by that authority from this time henceforth until Christ himself shall come to preside over us and be our king.
My brethren and sisters, if you want more revelation, here is the principle upon which to obtain it. Are you entitled to it? Yes, every one of you—the same spirit of revelation that Moses had, the same spirit that all the prophets and apostles had, it is your privilege, it
is my privilege, it is the privilege of every man and woman who possesses the Gospel to receive the spirit of God, the Holy Ghost, to have that same spirit resting upon him and upon her, and the more we seek after it and cherish it the more we will have.
My time is exhausted. I pray God to bless us and fill us continually with the light of that spirit, in the name of Jesus. Amen.


On the topic of secret combinations:

“This campaign against the American people – against traditional American culture and values- is systematic psychological warfare. It is orchestrated by a vast array of interests comprising not only the Eastern establishment but also the radical left. Among this group, we find the Department of State, the Department of Commerce, and the money center banks and multinational corporations, the media, the educational establishment, the entertainment industry, and the large tax-exempt foundations.
Mr. President, a careful examination of what is happening behind the scenes reveals that all of these interests are working to create what some refer to as a New World Order. Private organizations such as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Trilateral Commission, the Dartmouth Conference, the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies, the Atlantic Institute, and the Bilderberger Group serve to disseminate and to coordinate the plans for this so-called New World Order in powerful business, financial, academic, and official circles….
The influence of establishment insiders over our foreign policy has become a fact of life in our time. This pervasive influence runs contrary to the real long-term national security of our Nation. It is an influence which, if unchecked, could ultimately subvert our constitutional order.” – U.S. Senator Jesse Helms, December 15, 1987, speaking from the Senate floor. (Congressional Record, December 15 1987, page S18146)

And what I said on FB - yep I actually posted this on my wall with the above meme....:

I believe the quote was "extinguish" - not "distinguish". But, yes, draining the swamp of the whole lot of them would be my life's goal if given the power to do so. MAGA Trump!! Start with Reid and McCain and just keep on going. Come to think of it, maybe KJU could do us a big favor and clean the rats' nest out with fire..... If Trump gets neutralized either politically or mortally, this will be my prayer until the job is done.
For the first time since Reagan, there is hope once again of getting the upper hand on corruption in the halls of power of the empire.

This is quite interesting, considering Joseph Smith talked about this sign of Jesus' imminent coming being one of two comets or planets coming together.  Stars may be on the spectrum of possibilities, given that Joseph was trying to put into words what he saw in the heavens.  Something bright, no doubt. 

This coming together will happen in 2022 (they calculate).  Right before the 7 yr period of the twin eclipses comes to a close:

A phenomenon would be something like, say, a young star igniting for the first time, a couple stars colliding, something like that. Actually, the latter is anticipated to be witnessed in the year 2022 ( [link to (secure)] ), though this is a northern hemisphere star and if the merger had already happened prematurely (well really it happened well over a thousand years ago but the light is just now about to reach us, etc) I doubt they could keep it under wraps even for a few days.

Click on the Wiki article for the good stuff, if you want to know more.


Only someone versed in Jewish traditions and festivals would have picked up on the subtleties of the wording in Luke - CLEARLY  a reference to Succoth/booths.  This was after He received the keys of the ministry AND after He could start the clock ticking down to the final event on the Feast of Firstfruits (of them that slept, per the Book of Mormon - on Resurrection morning).  In an analgous manner,  I wonder if Him coming to AoA to again receive the keys to ministry on the earth again (this time, in the Spring), followed by a 1260 day period ending at the fall Wedding Feast (where the Bridegroom comes), would be a nice fit.  Just conjecture - but most things have pattern:

8 days after the start of the Feast of Tabernacles is Shimini Atzeret.

The two witnesses are Elijah and Moses.

This is the only reference in the Bible that describes the two witness together which is during the Transfiguration of Jesus. It is thought that after the transfiguration, Jesus started his 3 1/2 year or 1260 day ministry before his death on Passover.

In Revelation 11, it describes the two witnesses prophesying for 1260 days just like Jesus.

(Luke 9:28-36)

"About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray. As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning. Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus. They spoke about his departure, which he was about to bring to fulfillment at Jerusalem. Peter and his companions were very sleepy, but when they became fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men standing with him. As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and covered them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. A voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.” When the voice had spoken, they found that Jesus was alone. "

It says above, "let us put up three shelters" That is a clue there that is shows it was during the time of the Feast of Tabernacles too!

"Sukkot & the Transfiguration
Tuesday night we read Matthew 17 and began a discussion of the Transfiguration. This week is the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles (or Booths), called Sukkot (meaning tabernacles or booths) in Hebrew terminology. Because of the timing, we spent our time talking about "the Feast," in part because of the strange comment by Peter on that "high mountain" when he saw Jesus, in transfigured glory, and Moses and Elijah talking together.

"Lord, it is good that we are here. If you wish, I will make three tents here, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah." (v. 5)"

Shimini Atzeret or the 8th day of the Feast of Tabernacles is Oct. 11th/12th this year!

And on Friday the 13th, no less.... :)  I might add that we are in the final few days (have not looked it up) of the Jewish (ecclesiastical) year/fall festival cycle.  And, of course, we are still in 2017.

Here is a little more on what will happen in the third portion of that prophecy (or whatever you may want to call it - not sure under whose influence it came):

In a 1980 interview for the German magazine Stimme des Glaubens published in October 1981, John Paul II was asked explicitly to speak about the third secret. He said:
Because of the seriousness of its contents, in order not to encourage the world wide power of Communism to carry out certain coups, my predecessors in the chair of Peter have diplomatically preferred to withhold its publication. On the other hand, it should be sufficient for all Christians to know this much: if there is a message in which it is said that the oceans will flood entire sections of the earth; that, from one moment to the other, millions of people will perish... there is no longer any point in really wanting to publish this secret message. Many want to know merely out of curiosity, or because of their taste for sensationalism, but they forget that 'to know' implies for them a responsibility. It is dangerous to want to satisfy one's curiosity only, if one is convinced that we can do nothing against a catastrophe that has been predicted." He held up his rosary and stated "Here is the remedy against this evil. Pray, pray and ask for nothing else. Put everything in the hands of the Mother of God." Asked what would happen in the Church, he said: "We must be prepared to undergo great trials in the not-too-distant future; trials that will require us to be ready to give up even our lives, and a total gift of self to Christ and for Christ.

Here is something that may come in handy with KJU from the DPRK running around on the loose:

I am having to replace batteries on a bunch of my equipment that are 5 years or older.  I came to the conclusion that, instead of having to park equipment where you can plug in a trickle charger over the winter or times of mis-use, I will just keep a battery or several good quality batteries on my state of the art charger on my workbench at the ready.  Any time I need to use a piece of seldom-used equipment, I grab my battery with the handle that is fully charged and go throw it in the equipment and I am off to the races.  This way, I have only one battery - maybe two - to keep track of state of charge on.

Because lead acid batts can leak, I have gone with the more expensive AGM (Absorbed Glass Matt) that have little or no electrolyte that can off-gas, etc.  I get mine at Costco for about $150 each and they have about double the life of the others (which pays for the increased cost).  Another HUGE problem that is eliminated in my northern clime is the problem of freezing.  At super extreme temperatures, the HCl electrolyte can freeze in the old battery tech.  Not so much in the AGM batts.

So, with this system, you can leave your batteries out of the critical equipment - which leaves an open circuit and makes it virtually impervious to the effects of EMP, and with your quick disconnect battery terminals, you can shuttle a single battery around to take care of starting and charging needs without having to bring a wrench.

Perfect....  Now that AGMs are at half the cost of what they were just a few years ago, this is the time to make the switch and go for it.

I would not have known about these terminals, had I not stopped to chat with a family on the Victoria, BC ferry dock whose hybrid Escalade was on the blink due to leaving the interior lights on for hours while waiting in line for the ferry.  I have been inside out and round around on battery tech and I had never bumped into these things, until I was fishing around under the hood with another mechanic and came across them.  Line upon line, we will get there.

Wow this is interesting:

The WHO, which has been working alongside Madagascar’s Ministry of Health, confirmed more than 231 people had been infected with the contagious plague and officials have warned the risk of the epidemic spreading is “high”.
More than 50 million people in Europe were killed by the Black Death in the 1300s, which many historians believe was caused by several killer diseases including the pneumonic plague.
Eastern and central Madagascar have been worst hit by the outbreak, sparking emergency funding from the WHO. 

This right after talking to a woman from our ward who was led by vision to come from Quebec to Cardston.  She has been studying about the plague and herbal remedies.  She says we will need this information - how to use yarrow, etc.

Her accent makes it a little difficult to understand her, but I believe she talked about a visit by the Savior to the camps here outside of Cardston.  I asked her to say a closing prayer on the evening and I can say that she talks to God in a pure and simple way.  Her conversion story is amazing - she has truly been led to this point in her life.  I want that gal on my team.....  and many other amazing people here in Cardston.  They are part of God's dream team.

Sadly, there will still be a purging of many in Cardston and the surrounding areas.  There is no perfect place on the face of the land.  When the Savior asked, "Will faith be found amongst the people in that day?", it was not an empty question.  Here it is in context:

And shall not God aavenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with bthem?
aI tell you that he will bavenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
Few there be that find the way that leads to eternal life.....  I have to wonder how meager the harvest will be from some of the statements found in the scriptures.
