Folks, this is so exciting as it will avoid direct conflict between the Muslims and the Jews over the Dome OTR etc:

We are within a few years of all of this happening.  It will be quite exciting!


Folks, we all know there have already been several including one 200 years ago.  All are designed to tick major milestones off prior to the big event.  Joseph Smith said “Enoch came before the water.  I come before the fire.”  The express reason was and is to prepare those who are ready to be taken up before the earth is cleansed (burned).  It must be cleared of those who refuse to repent, prior to it going to the next level of it’s existence.  It is on a spiritual journey, too.

Folks, I have had dinner with this man several times and he is an amazing man led by the Spirit and is an instrument in the Lord’s hands to do much good.  I first read his story when my wife ended up experiencing bi-polar symptoms after the loss of our middle child.

He inspired us to turn to nutrition and diet.

If you know anyone who is suffering, please look into this.  You can thank me later:

Here is the product which is pretty stellar from random people I know that have started using it:

I got this in the temple as I prayed and asked for direction and counsel and then opened the Scriptures:

Yea, O God, thou hast been merciful unto me, and heard my cries in the midst of thy congregations.
10 Yea, and thou hast also heard me when I have been cast out and have been despised by mine enemies; yea, thou didst hear my cries, and wast angry with mine enemies, and thou didst visit them in thine anger with speedy destruction.
11 And thou didst hear me because of mine afflictions and my sincerity; and it is because of thy Son that thou hast been thus merciful unto me, therefore I will cry unto thee in all mine afflictions, for in thee is my joy; for thou hast turned thy judgments away from me, because of thy Son.

I love the manner of prophesy of Joseph:

32. Stephen A. Douglas prophecy

Judge, you will aspire to the presidency of the United States; and if ever you turn your hand against me or the Latter-day Saints, you will feel the weight of the hand of Almighty upon you; and you will live to see and know that I have testified the truth to you; for the conversation of this day will stick to you through life (HC 5:394).
In his election campaign Douglas did speak against the Church. It is interesting to note that Abraham Lincoln received 180 electoral votes and Douglas only twelve in the election of 1860. It was considered one of the biggest political upsets in United States history. The two states that supported Douglas were New Jersey and Missouri. Less than one year after that political contest, Stephen A. Douglas, yet in the prime of manhood, died a broken-hearted man at home at age forty-eight.


I love this guy.  I hope I am this gentle of spirit at his age:

Great information about the architectural committee:

I cheered when I heard the news of the rebuilding of that temple.  It was a way of pushing back on those who pushed the Saints out of what was then the USA and into wild territory.  One of the ultimate forms of bullying on a national scale by the majority on the minority.  Sending a message that we refuse to let that bullying define us was the best thing that came out of that announcement. 

The night our little guy died of SIDS, I ordered the tix for us to fly out to Chicago and have a family vacation to see the open house and go to other sites in the area.  I still remember having the conversation with my wife as to whether I should buy a seat for Dallin or if he would ride on our laps, etc.  It is amazing what 24 hours can do in a life.....

It was a good thing that we bought the tix that night, because I probably would have not had the heart to take our little family on that trip just six weeks after burying our little one.  This kept the continuity going in our lives at a critical time.

This is one of those classic talks that will be referenced for some years into the future:

Every family should watch this as part of the weekly study.

So, when you stand on principle, there are those who love and admire you and those who would seek for your life.  I have seen it with co-workers, etc.  I will share a blog piece of years ago about Gene Matthews who took exception to my views on Chastity.  He never threatened my life but was very direct about my livelihood and he was very tied in to my first and second line managers at Boeing as a forty year employee.

God fought that battle for me.  I really do not seek the fight, but it often comes to me.  I just refuse to back down once the fight comes my way.  I hold my testimony in higher regard than life itself.  It truly is my greatest possession.

Here is the story that got me spun up:

President George Q. Cannon spoke to this subject on more than one occasion, cautioning the Saints:
I have come to the conclusion that if our eyes were open to see the spirit world around us, . . . we would not be so unguarded and careless, and so indifferent whether we had the spirit and power of God with us or not; but we would be continually watchful and prayerful to our heavenly Father for His Holy Spirit and His holy angels to be around about us to strengthen us to overcome every evil influence. . . .[28]
If he could [Satan] would shed the blood of every man and woman on the face of the earth, rather than it should go into the hands of God. All those who are connected with him would, if they could, slay every man that stands in their pathway. The more faithful a man is in the cause of God, the more the hatred of the wicked is manifested against him.[29]

This kind of ties into this week’s Book of Mormon video:


I have been a personal witness to others who have had these experiences and have used the power of the Priesthood to cast evil spirits out in Brazil:

Great stuff.  If we do not understand our enemy, we are doomed to failure in the battle against the foe.


This book influenced my spiritual views more than any other, and of course, my sense of fair play as I found out about the mis-treatment of the Saints before the biggest fallout in America since the Trail of Tears:

recently found this prophecy of Joseph Smith in Commerce, Illinois in 1839. I have always wondered if the Prophet ever prophesied anything more specific about the final days, and he has.
Below, the Prophet prophesied the Saints must flee "going to Stakes" for safety which will require a sacrifice because others will be crying peace in the land. He tells us to "Look to the Presidency and receive instruction" and that "The gift of discerning spirits will be given to the Presiding Elder" and then gives keys on how not to be deceived when we receive personal revelation.
"Men profess to prophesy. I will prophesy that the signs of the coming of the Son of Man are already commenced. One pestilence will desolate after another. We shall soon have war and bloodshed. The moon will be turned into blood. I testify of these things, and that the coming of the Son of Man is nigh, even at your doors. If our souls and our bodies are not looking forth for the coming of the Son of Man, and after we are dead, if we are not looking forth, &c., we shall be among those who are calling for the rocks to fall upon us, &c.
The hearts of the children of men will have to be turned to their fathers, and the fathers to the children, living or dead, to prepare them for the coming of the Son of Man. If Elijah did not come, the whole earth would be smitten.
There will be here and there a Stake for the gathering of the Saints. Some may have cried peace, but the Saints and the world will have little peace from henceforth. Let this not hinder us from going to the Stakes; for God has told us to flee, not dallying, or we shall be scattered, one here, and another there. There your children shall be blessed, and you in the midst of friends, where you may be blessed. The Gospel net gathers of every kind.
I prophesy that that man, who tarries after he has an opportunity of going will be afflicted by the Devil. Wars are at hand; we must not delay, but are not required to sacrifice. We ought to have the building up of Zion as our greatest object. When wars come, we shall have to flee to Zion. The cry is to make haste. The last revelation says, “Ye shall not have time to have gone over the earth, until these things come.” It will come as did the cholera, war, fires, and earthquakes, one pestilence after another, &c., until the Ancient of Days come; then judgment will be given to the Saints.
Whatever you may hear about me or Kirtland, take no notice of it; for if it be a place of refuge, the Devil will use his greatest efforts to trap the Saints. You must make yourselves acquainted with those men who, like Daniel, pray three times a day to the house of the Lord. Look to the Presidency and receive instruction. Every man who is afraid, covetous, &c., will be taken in a snare. The time is soon coming when no man will have any peace but in Zion and her Stakes.
I saw men hunting the lives of their own sons, and brother murdering brother, women killing their own daughters, and daughters seeking the lives of their mothers. I saw armies arrayed against armies; I saw blood, desolation, fires, &c. The Son of Man has said that the mother shall be against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother, &c. These things are at our doors. They will follow the Saints of God from city to city. Satan will rage, and the spirit of the Devil is now enraged. I know not how soon these things will take place; and with a view of them, shall I cry peace? No. I will lift up my voice and testify of them. How long you will have good crops, and the famine be kept off, I do not know. When the fig tree leaves, know then that summer is nigh at hand.
We may look for angels and receive their ministration, but we are to try the spirits and prove them, for it is often the case that men make a mistake in regard to these things. God has so ordained that, when he has communicated, no vision is to be taken but what you see by the seeing of the eye, or what you hear by the hearing of the ear. When you see a vision, pray for the interpretation. If you get not this, shut it up. There must be certainty in this matter. An open vision will manifest that which is more important. Lying spirits are going forth in the earth. There will be great manifestations of spirit, both false and true. Being born again comes by the Spirit of God, through ordinances. An angel of God never has wings. Some will say that they have seen a spirit—that he offered them his hand, but they did not touch it. This is a lie. First, it is contrary to the plan of God. A spirit cannot come but in glory. An angel has flesh and bones: we see not their glory. The Devil may appear as an angel of light. Ask God to reveal it. If it be of the Devil, he will flee from you; if of God, he will manifest himself, or make it manifest. We may come to Jesus and ask him: he will know all about it. If he comes to a little child, he will adapt himself to the language and capacity of a little child.
Every spirit, or vision, or singing is not of God. The Devil is an orator. He is powerful. He took our Savior onto a pinnacle of the Temple, and kept him in the wilderness for forty days. The gift of discerning spirits will be given to the Presiding Elder. Pray for him that he may have this gift. Speak not in the gift of tongues without understanding it, or without interpretation. The Devil can speak in tongues: the Adversary will come with his work. He can tempt all classes—can speak in English or Dutch. Let no one speak in tongues, unless he interpret, except by the consent of the one who is placed to preside; then he may discern or interpret, or another may. Let us seek for the glory of Abraham, Noah, Adam, the Apostles, 


If ever a man influenced me as a teen, it is this man;

Look at the stats here.  I am glad someone took the time to calculate the probabilities of this being possible.

Bishop John Koyle mentioned this very scenario.  One Repub president and a few more attempts to keep it all together, and then chaos.  We suffer the same fate as the Nephites and Jaredites.

When you go to Shelley M’s site, you will find a trove of quotes supporting this sequence of events which include what is transpiring now.

God bless Shelley!  I think she does this full time and has done it right!

Enjoy!  A reader sent this.

Folks, now is the time to pray that the folly of the corrupt politicians is made manifest and Trump comes out as he is, and not as the media etc are making him out to be:


They often hide behind their titles, lawyers, fragile egos and often are drunk with power.  Quite literally drunk.... because they hate who they are and what they have become....  Hitting the hooch eases the conscience.

I love people who can take the truth straight up; 90 proof.


Folks, if you are going to read anything, read this:

Sorry about no link.  Went to find it and I had copied over it.  When is Apple going to make a C1, C2, C3 etc like my old HP calc??

Well, this is not the first time, this policy has created sticky situations in the work place.  The fellow that was abusing me at the job I was just at was dipping the quill in company ink and it led to the hostility that I experienced.

Confraternization is a pretty big no-no across the corporate world.

In fact, last week, there was a firing of the head of the McD's top man due to having a relationship with an underling:

About half of the companies out there have a policy against this.  I have a poignant story from early in my career where this thing came into effect and I began to learn that the world is not always a nice place:

I was a young father, just out of college and early in my engineering career.  I got a job at a bio-tech company in the Univ of Utah research park that I was excited about it as I would be able to literally walk across the street after work each night and knock out my MBA without having to put out a herculean effort.  My first manager was Mark Preziosi - and we immediately hit it off in the interview. Things were so good, that I mentioned that his name means "precious" in Italian and I was back-slapping a month or so later after I was hired.  If I can get a face to face interview, I can usually knock it out of the ball park.  I come across pretty confident - unnerving to people that are not so confident.  The "group interview" with my peers did not go off so well.  The lead, Brett Kalish, a burned out Jewish hippee-type from the East Coast with a lot of experience and no MBA saw BYU on my resume and said, "Oh, you are one of those...".  Yup, a moron.  I have to say, I have never experienced a more sullen, nasty co-worker in my life.  He was an expert blackmailer and would literally look at the logs to see how long you spent on the toilet and call you out on it in front of your co-workers - trying to humiliate you.....  Disgusting.  It was a Class III secure facility, so your every move was monitored from the "core" to the outer two perimeters in case there were ever problems with stealing of controlled substances.  Well, in Brett's monitoring of others' activities, he somehow put two and two together with Preziosi having a liaison, in the very french sense of the word, with a single mother in the HR dept. - and that was against company policy.  So, Brett, not having an MBA, and apparently worried that I would be able to walk in become his boss one day, put the screws to Preziosi to shut me down.  When I went in to have Preziosi sign my paperwork for the tuition reimbursement, I was flatly told NO.  I persisted and told him, this was one of the reasons I left my first job working for an opthalmological laser company and came up on the hill to work.  He told me again I needed to drop my plans.  I was VERY confused as to his motivation and persisted.  He then explained that he comes from a mafioso family from Jersey (pharma - the corrupt hellish practice that it largely is, is big out there).  He then asked me what was most important to me.  I said, my wife and my new-born girl.  He then said that its common practice in the mafioso world to find out what is most important to someone and use that to put the screws to the person to change their thinking.  He then said, "I want you to drop your MBA plans; think of your wife and your kid!".  I have been a Scoutmaster off and on for 12 of the last 17 years - and I know the classic signs of shock - and I was in it.  My tongue would not even hardly work in my mouth - it was so dry.  My pulse was elevated from the adrenaline rush - and who knows what the blood pressure was at....  I started to rebut one more time, and he said firmly, "Think of your wife and kid". There is a very real primal something that kicks in if there is a perceived threat to father of a young one.  I found myself assessing what my wife would say if I were to come home after getting fired from this for letting him know how I felt. 
At that point, I had no clue what was driving this radical change in my plans and in the relationship with my manager, but I was confused beyond words.  He also told me as I turned to walk out of his office that I was not to mention a word of our conversation and that, "Who would they believe anyway?  A manager, or a subordinate....?".  My mind was reeling.  I had just graduated from BYU (la-la land as I call it because its so "Ozzy and Harriet" perfect there) and was not acquainted with "the ways of men and things" and had no idea that stuff like this happened to ordinary people.  For the first time in my life, I considered buying a hand gun in the off-chance this guy was for real and I needed to protect my little charge that was only 6 months old.  I had been reading some book about how Joseph Smith had been jacked around by a bunch of jackals and, in his pleadings, he had used the phraseology, "let their folly be made manifest".  For the first time ever, I dropped to my knees that night in my office after the others had gone home and pled my case before the Lord.  I mentioned that I and my wife had faithfully paid a full tithe our entire lives in order that the blessings of heaven would rain down on us and that we had just started a family and I had covenanted with the Lord that I would do my best to bring up a righteous family if He would back me in the ability to put food on the table and a safe roof over their heads.   I then asked that the Lord judge between me and the manager and that his "folly would be made manifest" to me before I left the company.  It turns out an attempt was made to that end shortly after our meeting.  I was put on second shift support full time and then the decision was made to cut the entire second shift out - we were called into the meeting area after we got in one day and all handed our final paychecks and escorted to the door.  What??  I didn't know you could do that to an employee without some kind of advance notice so they could make plans.  I felt like a used piece of meat that day. 

I had rubbed shoulders with a Director of Quality and Engineering (Preziosi's boss), a good God-fearing Christian man from the east coast and I guess I left a good impression with him.  I got a personal phone call from him a week or so later and said that there had been a mistake and that I was supposed to be transferred to pilot-scale engineering - but the paperwork had been lost in the shuffle.  I could start there in the next pay-period and there would be no loss of pay for the two weeks I had been off of work!  Woohoo!!  I was able to get alot done on our first fixer-upper house during those two weeks, too.  I was a little nervous to go back after what I had been through, but relieved that someone was watching over me and my little family.
I went over there and had great success as I knocked out some daunting problems that two other engineers could not solve that had previously worked on; and then they had left.  I was sent out to a drug coating and drying seminar in Boston for a week and was able to take my wife and visit holy sites in NY and other areas in our off time and the two weekends we had.  With much prayer and pondering, I was able to solve a quality problem the company had been suffering with for years causing huge losses in manufacturing when drug concentration per unit area could not be maintained and entire batches would have to be scrapped at the manufacturing level.  My salary doubled almost over night after I nailed that one (with God's help).  I didn't feel like a piece of meat any more.  I was safely able to observe from my pilot-scale perch what was going on over in my old manufacturing world.  One day, Preziosi was fired along with the HR gal.  I had then gotten a call from an old friend and was in the middle of interviewing and moving into my current job in Flight Test in aerospace - my dream job.  Before I let the company know - gave them my two week's notice like they expected of me..... - I got called into the office of the manager who had hired Brett Kalish and she, in tears, asked me for forgiveness for having hired him several years before.  She knew the hell he was creating over on the manufacturing side for me and others.  I guess she had seen the trauma he had created for me - even though I did not know her very well.  I told her it was no big deal (at that point, I had the added perspective of seeing that the Lord would back me) and let her know of my plans to blow that popsicle stand for my dream job trashing on quarter billion dollar wonders and getting paid to do it.  I would let things sort themselves out according to the law of the harvest - to each their own.  She let me know that Preziosi's wife had left him and took their three kids, the house and the retirement money.  Preziosi then took off for Florida with his new girlfriend and her kid in tow to open a dive shop.  Five years ago, I was telling a co-worker (who actually encouraged me to get this blog going) about this bizarre twist of events and we decided to electronically stalk Preziosi.  We found him on LinkedIn - the last update from 10 years after being fired from our mutual employer, he still listed that as his last gig.  Not sure if it had just not been updated, but truly God does answer the sincere pleading when we keep the laws associated with a principle.  Truly, that folly was made manifest before I left the company and it taught me some deep lessons about life.
God is not floofy - one of the greatest lies perpetuated in our religious culture - that He will just beat us with a few stripes and let us go off to everlasting joy and happiness.  He does not fool around and will drop the hammer when something is out of line.  He is merciful ONLY when we are repentant and humble - and that mercy is manifest through His Son - our Savior.  I re-iterate that we as a nation and a people are ripening and that we are about to be judged because we have not rooted out the secret combinations (ones that make the mafiosos look like kiddos on a playground compared to the ones who really run the show) because we have not heeded the message of the Book of Mormon; and they have gotten above us.

So, yeah.  This whole chastity thing is a minefield and is why I declined several times to explain my religious beliefs to this co-worker at my former place of employment before she persuaded me to share them (after which came the verbal and social "beatings").

It is all in God's hands.  I just get to watch from a distance and feel sorry for them.  God is a much better disciplinarian of His children than I could ever be.



This hits home when it comes to American politics etc:

Folks, I have been putting a few articles together that describe how events will come together in these last days.

The blog assumes a linear readership.  In other words, if you just jump in, you will likely miss the overall message of the blog.  Including if you are the VP of HR and missed the little detail that I let God fight my sheesh!

Anyway, the past few articles have been highlighting quotes surrounding how the tribulations will come about.  They will be related to our places of worship being shut down and then economic collapse and a great purge of the wicked as the earth is cleansed and the way is prepared for Millennial prosperity.

I felt prompted to have a conversation with the witness couple after an endowment session on Saturday.  They had emigrated from El Salvador a few years ago.  I shared an abbreviated form of the spiel as my daughters call it, including a synopsis of Visions of Glory and Sols Guardisto vision as we stood in the courtyard of the magnificent Cardston temple.

He shared that he was in attendance when Elder Holland visited their area and said that the new 2 hour block was to prepare the Saints for the time when we would administer the sacrament in our own homes and no longer worship as a body.

The matches what Spencer has said offline that he saw in his visions.  I could not share that until it was confirmed from a direct source as a second witness from one in authority.

I feel that my mentor was right in that things will roll in earnest in 2021, hitting a crescendo in 2024 at the end of the 3.5 year period.

The leadership that is in place now is what will be there when “the Savior, Joseph and others make their appearance” to the remnant who survive the purge in SLC, just as Spencer and Heber C Kimball have predicted independent of each other.

It will be a glorious time; once the sorrows are over.


This is a great read from 2011.

The best stuff is in the archives.  2011 was a great year!

If I am reading the road markers correctly as we whiz past them, then Trump will be re-elected then something happens and the nation is plunged into chaos.

This is the beginning of the tribulations.

This is how we have the One Mighty and Strong come on the scene.

Very interesting stuff.

Sunday, November 10, 2019


Folks, I am invariably wrong when it comes to guessing timing, but this seems to put a timeline on things:

I - When will the temple be built at Independence?
He - Right after the great tribulation is over.

I - What do you mean by that?
He - A civil war more bloody and cruel than the rebellion. It will be a smashing up of this nation, about which time the second great work has to be done, a work like Joseph did, and the translation of the sealed plates, and peace all over.

It was taken from an interview with David A Whitmer back in 1878, after the first civil war.

This civil war will start in Chicago and will spread over the land as it is father against son, etc.


Folks, this is a piece I did back in 2011 about the Law of the Harvest in relation to the Extermination Order against the Saints in Missouri.

Great stuff:

The best stuff is in the archives.

This is interesting.  Much here I did not understand.  I will be looking it up on greater detail.

Jerusalem has risen and fallen on their righteousness.  There is a GREAT push right now to find the lost city of David so they know where to build the third temple in the next few years.

Each of the layers they are digging thru represents a cultural lapse in judgement where they have departed the way and crossed that line.

The Prophets and prophets have warned, pleaded and finally been killed or driven off.  Either way, they won.  My daughter was a little irritated that I managed to get myself walked out the door in spectacular fashion.  I reminded her that this was only the first volley and that while it may appear that you have lost the first battle, when God is directing the coordinates and has greater ordinance (did you pick up on the double entendre?? which should in no way be construed as a physical threat by spiritually dense people....), you do not lose the war.

So, yeah it may have appeared that Lehi lost in 589BC, but he and his posterity went on.  The others had an end to their dominion.  That saga is still playing out as his righteous posterity take front and center in North American events as Ephraim loses her fortress and Manasseh rises up like a lion to use OT imagery.

Here is what got me spun up:

Friday, November 8, 2019


Folks, look at this and ask yourself which Jesus you worship:

It really comes down to seeing things as they are and not as we hope or how they have been spun.

The Jesus I know was not a soy boy - but was a real man in every sense of the word.  He threw the money changers out of the temple and stood up to corruption wherever He found it.  If we do the same, we qualify to be with Him.  If not and we cower and deny Him, we will be denied before the Father.

Thursday, November 7, 2019


These are some great quotes.  While my job/role is to wake people up, I cannot wait until that is finished and we can move on.  Part of qualifying to take it to the next level is never ceasing to call repentance.  Even under ugly circumstances.  When you back the Lord, he backs you in surprising ways:

Mark E. Petersen
"... in these, the last days, the Lord has predicted that there shall be two simultaneous movements. One of these movements is the great tribulation that shall come upon the world. The wicked will destroy the wicked.
"The other great movement which will be going forward simultaneously is that there shall be a stone cut out of the mountain without hands, and it shall roll forth and eventually fill the whole earth. The Church to which you and I belong is that stone. It has been cut out of the mountain without hands, and your destiny and mine is to help roll it forth. (D&C 65:2.)
"Now do you suppose for one moment that the judgments of God are going to interfere with the progress of his work? He is consistent, isn't he? Although he will pour out his tribulations upon the wicked, he nevertheless will carry forward his work, and his people, under divine protection, will roll forth that stone until eventually it fills the whole earth.
"And so says the Book of Mormon:
"For the time soon cometh that the fulness of the wrath of God shall be poured out upon all the children of men; for he will not suffer that the wicked shall destroy the righteous.
"Wherefore, he will preserve the righteous by his power, even if it so be that the fulness of his wrath must come, and the righteous be preserved, even unto the destruction of their enemies by fire. Wherefore, the righteous need not fear; for thus saith the prophet, they shall be saved, even if it so be as by fire. (1 Nephi 22:16-17.)
"I believe that. In the midst of all these tribulations God will send fire from heaven, if necessary, to destroy our enemies while we carry forward our work and push that stone until it fills the whole earth!
"Your destiny is to do that very thing, and this is the kind of protection you will have. You do not need to fear about world conditions. You do not need to fear about anybody. Just serve the Lord and keep his commandments and build the kingdom, and as you do so you will be protected in these last days. God will have his hand over you, and you can plan your lives in confidence.
(Conference Report, October 1960, pp. 81-83. as taken from D. Ludlow's A Companion to Your Study of the Book of Mormon, p.122-3)


Folks, if my math is correct, that is 75%....

Maybe they were all just older folks or younger with a terminal illness?  Or??;

The obvious.....


These numbers are staggering....  One trillion dollars in one hundred dollar bills would cover an American football field 8.5 feet deep.

It boggles the mind what the global debt would be like:

Who owns this debt?  It is not just the Chinese buying US treasuries....  When you possess wealth from securing this kind of debt, when is it enough?

This is why we are taught to work towards having sufficient for our needs and to succor the poor and the needy.  If we can create wealth (and therefore, debt) out of thin air, why not build tiny homes for veterans and the mentally ill instead of leaving them to suffer on the streets?

The sin of Sodom was not as much about the rampant sexual immorality as it was about the selfishness created when those who had, refused to give of their substance to succor the poor and the needy.  The sexual sin was an outgrowth of or a manifestation of that selfish culture of depriving others of “that which is most precious”.

This is crux of what happened at Viking.  From the bottom to the top, there were people struggling with various levels of this (I do not judge as I am imperfect in my thoughts; thoughts then words then actions....).  At the very top, the VP of HR apparently slept her way to the top with the CFO (per many unsolicited comments from coworkers during my tenure there; her shame is an open secret)....  When my concerns and statements about mis-treatment over my deeply-held beliefs on chastity made their way to her desk, she was likely convicted.  I am sure her flying from Victoria to Calgary to personally fire me was a great source of satisfaction to her.

Well, the Law of the Harvest is now in effect as well as Alma44.  God will do as He sees fit with her. He loves her just as much as He loves me.  BUT, there is justice delayed for a heavenly reckoning and there is earthly justice.  Sometimes all one, sometimes all the other.  Sometimes a mix.

The fact is this; this life is a time to prepare to meet God.  If someone has strayed, God will gently merge them back onto the path.  Sometimes He will do it in a dramatic way.  I have had both and certainly seen both.

When I get a moment, I will revisit some dramatic examples and I am sure a few more examples will emerge from this.  Sometimes we have to go through terrible things to gain a new vision; to see things with our spiritual eyes, so to speak.  Sometimes, that means letting go of our physical senses and reaching out of the darkness to the light where there is truth and love.

If we start that journey from a position of spiritual strength, it is an opportunity for incredible growth.  If not, it is often a chastisement to bring us to a place where we can effectively see God’s light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.

In any case, buckle up!

As I have repeatedly said, I leave things up to God when it comes to matters of earthly justice.

My role is simply to declare truth and let things happen as they will.  Any attempt on my part to judge any situation will inevitably end in me getting it wrong.

This article lays out the doctrine/practice quite well:

I have a doctor friend who is a just woman who was in a similar situation that I am who was told to do this and a fitting event happened two weeks later.  There is the Law of the Harvest and something much more intense.

If you would like more info on this topic, read the book Fate of the Persecutors of the Prophet Joseph Smith.  Also search the blog for General Order 10 to learn what happened to those who effected the Extermination Order in Missouri.  There is quite a history of giving it to those who have a history of persecuting those who stand up for the truth.

As we head towards the Millennium, the wicked will nearly overcome “The Woman”, but the chastened remnant will be given power over them and it will be “terrible” in the archaic sense of the word.  No weapon formed against it will prevail.  Due to collective righteousness, there will be a great and fearsome power, not to mention those of a terrestrial nature at the head of that gathering.


This is something I picked up on as a youth when I started reading the Book of Mormon and the other works at Joseph’s hand:

Wow - the truth that was squashed for so long:

When it is bigger than you, you just have to leave it in God’s hands, but never shut your mouth.

He is the perfect Arbiter.

Now that I have time, I will outline more of what happened and has historically happened as I have dealt with abusive situations and just turned it over to God.

I feel for those who wrong those who simply try to do God’s will.  It is a very hard row to hoe; and I put emphasis on that last word.

I need to develop more pity and less indignation at the situation.

But it is hard to do.

I am sure these agents have to pass fitness tests;

How mich longer does this nation have to endure this?

We need a clear and decisive act of God to send a message of hope for those who follow good principle.


Just got this from a blog reader.  I feel we are in the last year and a half before things get rolling in earnest.  If I am reading things correctly, against all odds, Trump is re-elected but then something bad happens to him and the states descend into civil unrest and then full on civil war.

It will start in Chicago and around the time the Church is shut down and loses the 501c3 status over the stance on traditional marriage.  It is all part of the deal.  The persecution has to become intense; much so more than in the days of the Missouri Extermination Order by Governor Boggs.  When the greatest nation on the earth comes down, it will only be due to having crossed a line that should never have been crossed.  It will cause much sorrow:

It will cause the most hardened to weep.  But it will begin “in my house” first.  And then to other nations who dealt unjustly with the righteous of this nation.


Just got fired for standing up and standing out for religious freedom today.  I had taken one insult too many and said what was on my mind.

I hope many good people of conscience at Viking follow me and leave the company.

It will be their loss in the end.  The Law of the Harvest is in effect.  That is not a threat, that is a statement of fact.  It is how I roll; just leave it in God’s hands and let things take their natural course.

Here is a great defense of the religious right by Trump and Pence:

Trump just vacated NY partly based on this kind of stuff:

Folks, I could have done something to stop this.....  I have watched these vids countless times:

I was younger and did not speak up when I could have.  I have learned to be a loud sonuvabuck since then.  Fighting corruption and error can save lives (both spiritual and physical) and helps you to sleep at night.  This event was pivotal and shaped me.  I have been a fighter ever since.  I kind of relish finding these pieces of Shiz and doing Coriantumrs on them....  They are corrupt, selfish, ego-centric and are usually beady-eyed pathologicals with no emotion or feeling in them.  I am having to deal with one (the workplace asshole) in my current situation...and several past situations.  They leave an unethical trail of wreckage where ever they go.    If they do not follow good principle, I seek to move them along to other situations so the rest of the pack that have consciences can have peace for 8 hours a day.  Management usually love them because "they get the job done".  When, in reality, they are just a massive liability to the company (in the long run).  The problem with those types, is they get the 737Max out on time, or the Alaska jets turned around in record time - but in the end, the few millions they might save the company, get wasted on the billions in payouts and legal fees to cover the companies' arses....

The guy in my Renton, WA ward that I was home teacher over, worked on the Alaska ramp maintenance crew that was responsible to keep these Alaska planes maintained.

Right after 9/11 (November of 2001), he and I were having an airplane chat after visiting with his family.  He said, "You know Brother "Wood Zone", it is not a matter of IF we have a crash at Alaska, it is a matter of WHEN".  I really did not know how to take what he said other than 'yeah, we are in a risky business.'

He then followed on with the revelation that they were forcing him to sign off on maintenance (MPD Task Cards) that they were not completing.  The horizontal stabilizer access on the ramp requires a genie lift and in wet or windy weather, that is not often possible to effectively complete when turning an airplane around.  Especially when there is a schedule to keep.  Some corrupt piece of work was telling them to defer and sign off on critical maintenance items.  The horizontal stabilizer was my system in 2001 at Boeing.

When I was driving home from my job in Feb 2002, I had the radio on and was listening to the drama and horror of what happened off the coast of California that day.   I raced home and was pegged to the news until I knew it was not the Alaska Boeing product, but indeed the MD product.  I needed to know I had not somehow contributed to that loss of lives.

That crash saved my job and career at Boeing.

GOING BACK A LITTLE:  Six weeks before Sept 11th, I had come home and told my wife, "Something big is going to affect my employment.  It will happen in the next six months."  My wife asked me "What do you think it is?"  I said, "I don't know exactly, but I think we will be okay if we pay our tithing religiously (every two weeks with each paycheck), and if we double our fast offerings".  I really had no clue.  But I followed the whisperings of the Holy Ghost and led my family the best I knew how.

Six weeks later, I got my answer.  We had already started paying every two weeks instead of letting it slide until the end of the month, quarter or year like we had done in our first 10 years of marriage as we navigated college, new jobs and other financial challenges of our first home and remodel.

Now, we lived both laws of the fast and tithing to exactness and put the Lord to the test.

Obedience to God's laws brings blessings.  Exact obedience brings miracles.
And some smartass at work today implied that anyone that believes in the afterlife is a purple kool-aid drinker.....  Just days after I sign papers on agreement that there will be a division-wide roll-out on diversity and tolerance training.  And this puke was fully aware of that detail.....  I told my wife tonight that normally, the guy is okay - but that smartasses like him end up with broken jaws.... Not at my hand - just in some form from a higher power.  He needs to sip pureed carrots from a straw with his mouth wired shut until he figures life out and is a little more humble around people of faith.....  People of faith experience amazing things precisely because they believe, not because they have sipped a little too much kool-aid, Jim Jones style.  Well the same sonuvabuck dropped the F-bomb on our Director of Quality a few weeks ago.  The company may just bust his chops for that.  I know I would, given the authority to do so.  I am feeling regret for not marching his arse right into the HR Director's office today and saying, "I rest my case".  It was said right in front of my manager, too.  AGAIN, failed to do anything about it.....  Grrrr......

Man, I am getting pissed off.  Nasty lawsuit pissed off.....  I am not going to take much more before I blow this whole corrupt thing wide open....  Either this popsicle stand walks the walk, or they do not.....  But it is popular sport these days to trash on conservative Christians.  I may just make it my business to prey on those who refuse to do something about it....  Alma 44 style.

Anyway, I digress.  So when they cut half of the 106,000 employees right after 9/11, I was told the cuts would be to the 20 year mark.  I was at the 4 year mark at that point.  I felt I had no chance, until my manager tapped me one day and asked me to come into his office.  The FAA had just been there and mandated that anyone that worked on the Hor Stab System MUST stay.  No exceptions.  Well, there was also a directive from HR that they had to cut up to the 20 year mark and could only keep Level 3 Engineers or above with no exceptions except for critical skills (new program development, etc).

My manager could not figure how to resolve the two mandates.  I mentioned that I had BYU Capstone experience and summer work that might qualify for "years of service".  He asked me to put a quick summary of my additional outside work experience together which I did.  To become a level III engineer, a minimum of 11 years of service or 7 years + a Masters Degree was required.  I had just BARELY qualified for Level II.....  I did not hold much hope.  In fact, I had just dropped tens of thousands of dollars on my Montana timberframe project including buying a Ford Extendahoe backhoe and a 24' boxtruck with liftgate to move equipment, etc.  I had just bought 60,000 lbs of glu-lam beams from a warehouse demolition project and stuffed a 40' shipping container silly in prep of the "big layoff" in case it came my way.  I was locked and loaded for what I expected was the next phase of life.  That never came.

My boss called me into the office a week later and he was super excited.  He was a gay man with a huge heart and probably wept over all the people he had to lay off - but he got to keep his Mormon who would later become a huge and outspoken proponent of traditional marriage.... Life is full of ironies!

Anyway - he got me my Level III.  At the time, there was a mandatory $5,000 pay bump for Level increases, in spite of the $5,000 I had just received in the past year over the Level II increase, plus we had just been given the annual spring bonus which was rather large due to half the people with the same pool of money to spread around.  I walked away that year with about a $20,000 USD bump (in today's dollars).   The funny part was, that in spite of the financial goodness that came from that, I was not a happy camper because I had actually gotten used to the idea of heading to MT and building my dream home with my young family.  Looking back at all I have been through, that was one of the most interesting scenes of my life.

Within a month of all that drama, my middle child (youngest child of our three at the time) died of SIDS (many other blog pieces on that if you type SIDS in the search field).  That event has defined the last 17 years of our lives.  Not a day goes by that I am not reminded of or acutely feel the effects of it.  It profoundly affected my wife's health.  One day, I know the effects of it will catch up with mine due to the chronic stress I have endured.  I would never wish that event on my worst enemy - but at the same time, I am not sure I would trade it for another alternate scenario that I can think of - because I am not sure I could learn more than I have but from that event and the outfall.

I have learned - but not mastered - the concept of never complaining about the current station in life, because "things can always get worse".  I have also learned that the challenges of life, including a really interesting one I have just entered in my family life, are really just put there to increase our abilities to love, understand and be more like the Father of us all.  We all have to be molded in His image before we pass over, if we expect to receive eternal glory.

I have have also had it driven home over and over that "what does not kill you, makes you stronger".

That year, along with the later loss of my mother was the most event-filled thing I expect to go through.  I have not even scratched the surface with this blog piece.

God is good and He is mighty to save.  I do not mind keeping that to myself, though it is hard not to share it - but I take great exception to those who try to pick away at such amazing things, just because they are too wretched of a being to step up to the plate and put in the necessary effort to attain similar results.  From the Cardston Apostate to the smart-arsed guy that needs a jaw adjustment, spiritual apathy and mediocrity will get you nowhere.  The opposite will guarantee the best bang for your buck on this mortal journey....  Truly, wood you believe it?  I do.

Wow - this is interesting stuff:

I got this screen shot from this youtube presentation of a guy I really like - who is not LDS, but pretty spot on in most of his views (as crazy as he sounds here):

Very interesting that Nephi was a man of large stature.  I wonder if they had some recessive genes in Lehi's family.  I picture them well over 6.5 feet tall.  Was his name a tip of the hat to those who were so tall?

They were red-haired and very tall.  Many had double rows of teeth.  Joseph of Egypt was also a reddish-brown haired man.  Lehi declared himself a direct descendant of Joseph of Egypt.

One of my mentors says these Nefilim will return.  Same story as this man putting forward.  She has seen them in vision/dream.  Things are about to get real.  These guys are fallen terrestrial beings who could not keep the commandments including the Law of Chastity.  The depravity continued until they had fallen to the point they were feasting on human flesh and drinking human blood, just as many in the Illuminati do today.  This includes hillary clinton and Huma Abedin (her assistant) who was married to Anthony Weiner (the NY politician who lived up to his name) and had copied files from his wife's computer and those files were then exposed in the Weinergate investigation.

The Ten Tribes will have the ability to fight these beings.  We will not be able to on our own, in fact, we will have to rely on these beings to provide "security" for those of the rest of the House of Israel who are not as advanced until this epic event is over.


Wow - this was close!

One day, one will touch down somewhere in the Pacific.  I have told anyone I know there to be a minimum of 2500' elevation.  When it does occur, the wave will be catastrophic.

Same applies for the coastline such as Washington.  I give it a 70% chance of happening within the next 17 years.  Based on many amazing visions and dreams of people I have run into.  Too much anecdotal evidence to dismiss the notion as fear-mongering.

All me and mine and are above the high water mark.  Whatever drives the Saints off the west coast will be massive.
