D&C 50:10 And now come, saith the Lord, by the Spirit, unto the elders of his church, and let us reason together, that ye may understand;
Let us reason even as a man reasoneth one with another face to face.
Now, when a man reasoneth he is understood of man, because he reasoneth as a man; even so will I, the Lord, reason with you that you may understand.
Wherefore, I the Lord ask you this question—unto what were ye ordained?
To preach my gospel by the Spirit, even the Comforter which was sent forth to teach the truth.
And then received ye spirits which ye could not understand, and received them to be of God; and in this are ye justified?
Behold ye shall answer this question yourselves; nevertheless, I will be merciful unto you; he that is weak among you hereafter shall be made strong.
Verily I say unto you, he that is ordained of me and sent forth to preach the word of truth by the Comforter, in the Spirit of truth, doth he preach it by the Spirit of truth or some other way?
And if it be by some other way it is not of God.
And again, he that receiveth the word of truth, doth he receive it by the Spirit of truth or some other way?
If it be some other way it is not of God.
Therefore, why is it that ye cannot understand and know, that he that receiveth the word by the Spirit of truth receiveth it as it is preached by the Spirit of truth? Wherefore, he that preacheth and he that receiveth, understand one another, and both are edified and rejoice together.
And that which doth not edify is not of God, and is darkness.
That which is of God is light; and he that receiveth light, and continueth in God, receiveth more light; and that light groweth brighter and brighter until the perfect day.
And again, verily I say unto you, and I say it that you may know the truth, that you may chase darkness from among you;
He that is ordained of God and sent forth, the same is appointed to be the greatest, notwithstanding he is the least and the servant of all.
If there is anything Jews and non-Jews share, it is self-loathing; but that which is more tragic is that we are overcome by our Yetza hara (evil inclination) and excuse ourselves in being of an anti-christ, anti-Mashiach, anti-semite spirit of the world that we have fallen in with, having both ceased to live by faith and by law, endeavoring to establish ourselves by our own wills and strength, learning and cunning, etc.
The conquest of war and the building of something new- its wonder and ability to instill a sense of pride and humanity fade rather quickly, while delusions that please or distract tend to outlast and outdo our best efforts to please ourselves or others. We are not just naughty but very selfish by nature.
The times of Moshiach , despite our ability to live in denial of them, have come and gone from age to age, and people of all religions so-called, creeds and colors have either accepted him and HaShem’s Spirit and tried to conform to his likeness and walk in the Way of Torah and Judaism or not.
All Christ worship is idol worship but none of said worship makes Christ an idol.
In order to come to Messiah and do as he would and please God one must, at the very least, become a Jew and walk as a Jew may according to Torah and Judaism.
While faith on Mashiach may be enough to save, God demands more and we ought to desire more of ourselves, for without works faith is dead or at least lies dormant, and what brings them to life is revelation and instruction, the works of faith written in Torah and upon the hearts of believers, if they don’t smash the tablet of their heart and toss it away…
Performed in purity by Moshiach himself; a hard if not impossible act to follow by anyone in the flesh, if we live by the Spirit, we overcome and are like him. It is easier to try to make others stumble and mar the Way so that others will not be able to attain any measure of success, than to rest in our failures and point the Way from them while making the best of an untoward situation as we may according to the glorious liberty the sons of God afford one as all. Otherwise, we may stir up contentions and dissensions among those sons and lose that Liberty only to be enjoyed with God and our opportunity to be free in an otherwise minded state also diminishes greatly until all is lost and nothing remains of Covenant capability to justify the creature.
Faith! This has more to do with our success as a nation than with our failure in anywise. Without faith in Messiah, though the wisest of Jews strive lawfully to enter the Kingdom, he will fall short because he has no faith in the L-RD’s son.
At the other extreme is the gentile who may love God and has faith so as to remove mountains, but falls short because he is unwilling to become a Jew and partake in the Covenant promise to all mankind through the Jews and Jesus Christ their king.
The thing is, as Solomon found out, the king can fail. And as Jesus said, “If I do the works believe in them, if I don’t don’t…” “There is none which is good but HaShem only.”
“Salvation is of the Jews.”
Solomon’s was the first Great Depression of the United Tribes, Colonies, States…. It is when the Head finds out what the tail has been up to, even as Lincoln found Washington’s false teeth weren’t enough to chew on/with…He had a bigger mouth, was a bigger man and had a bigger dream, heart and purpose than little Caesar Washington/Herod/Bush.
Few wanted Solomon to be king in the first place, preferring instead the Judean whose own arm strove for himself, even as the mob would prefer a thief and barbarian to Jesus before Pilate, but none of these affected God’s choice in the least and Jews who know HaShem are always championing the right son/king/leader, but in the end, the most faithful of attendants or disciples must fall away and do their best to be a striving Jew despite the politics of the day or intrigues of the kingdom.
Diversity in Unity being the point, America affords more opportunities to establish Kingdom communities than any other place on earth. That is what HaShem is all about. Whether Jew or Gentile, the Torah is the same and the gospel its foundation, or vice versa; from whence came the Holy Order of God.
I think it is fair to say that the entire world, whether Jew or Gentile, hates Christ and God right now and the whole world lies under the power of the evil inclination, and that there is no free society or nation or people who truly enjoy the gift of divine liberty anymore.
What is worse is that no on cares and no one wants to enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness anymore either.
Doing so would require men to be Jewish in thinking, judgment, charity, ability, humility, etc.
Admitting defeat may be the whole victory for those who have lost the Way.
De Nile is a river in Egypt.
That is why Jesus counted on people who denied him and why they may have been so quick to trust HaShem to save even when they called for his crucifixion.
He was the First and Last Great Emancipator of all mankind.
John 12:21 Sir, we would see Jesus.
Luke 23:18 Away with this man.
The human heart is an evil, fickle thing…
A proud world of violence constrained only by fear of getting caught or punished has no place of refuge for the righteous man, much less Christ, but many such slums for filthy dreamers…
The True American Spirit however was and is the last hope for the rebirth of a redemptive society, where even the filthy dreamer can be made worthy to partake in the joys of HaShem. It must be jealously guarded and maintained by truly brave and free willing citizens.
We have lost that Spirit and through covetousness, feigned words, and empty promises and broken vows have become like unto a caged Zoo of angry, where no one may be free and all the wrong people are employed and granted authority by an anti-christ ‘we the people’ who are an abominable, impenitent lot of cancerous members devouring one another or whomever is senseless enough to believe in cancer as a curable disease one should seek treatment for.
With all the so-called wisdom and knowledge that abounds these days, we are the dumbest/cruelest generation of fools in the history of the world.
Noblemen, on the other hand, plan noble things and through their nobility they stand. From these a legitimate liberality may be shown to one as to all. But it need be in marked contrast to the smorgasbord Mardi Gras buffet at a Reno casino…or the trough the pigs in congress feed from…
A nation that MAY go to war must do so for virtuous reasons and not the spread of ‘freedom’ so-called which is plague dressed in fatigues.
Though patience is a virtue, lying in wait to deceive is not.
There is no injustice on HaShem’s part and unless you seek His will through His covenant people the Jews and Jesus Christ our lord and savior, the mediator of the renewed covenant, you may never work justice for yourself or anyone else with any success that isn’t delusional and counter-progressive.
True progress is made by returning to HaShem. All roads fashioned by man lead elsewhere and eventually nowhere.
If any man truly cares about the American Dream, he must seek HaShem’s justice and be satisfied with the rewards of a heavenly Jerusalem on earth. The dream is a reality worth fighting for but without the wisdom of HaShem you may as well be wasting time re-creating the Titanic Disaster. For without the wisdom of HaShem, the love of Christ, the Way of Judaism and the faith of saints and sages, the Ship snaps in half, the crew falls apart, a general chaos takes hold and it’s women and children first and all is mockery fading into obscurity and all is lost eventually except a romantic vision of a bygone disaster that does not build up but distracts, placates and obfuscates…Unity in Diversity cannot be maintained in delusion and iniquity except by an oppressive regime. But that is no unity at all, not as freemen would have it…
“Happiness never was wickedness.”
When a man, whether sinner or saint walks in His ways, reality becomes perfect, creation submits itself to the wisdom of its Creator, and harmony takes hold or is restored like unto Eden. Anyone may attest to this verity.
But this too does pass, and we regress and fall away, and therein does the gospel overcome where the Torah may not unless men be agreed, making them Jews. This of course wont happen, that is why the leader laid down his life for his shipmates, but would of course abandon ship if the shipmates were bent on mutiny…Christ is not a shepherd for lemmings but for sheep to safe pasture, the lemmings lead the way for the swine who don’t give a damn…
Because so many people sought their own ways, they forfeited the right and ability to share in a reality made perfect by devotion. Reality itself can’t achieve, doesn’t need to achieve anything apart from Him, and cannot be enjoyed without Him. It is He and His Spirit that bestow Divine Liberty upon the creature and there is no greater attainment to be had than to enjoy this unspeakable gift and hand the same down from generation to generation.
Where fault is found merit may not be won. Where fault is forgiven victory may be attained through faith.
Where the people are hard of heart and stiff of neck, far be it from the L-RD to give up or deny Himself.
When Zion is unwell and the High Priest is dying, the Torah does not pass away nor the covenant lose its efficacy.
And Zion is unwell but she is not beyond cure. No situation with God in the midst is hopeless.
Take God out of the way or the equation and she’ll reap immediate destruction, something she may actually long for but hasn’t right to do without ‘we the people’s’ consent. I fear she is near gaining consent!
Mosiah 29:27 And if the time comes that the voice of this people doth choose iniquity, then is the time when the judgments of God will come upon you; yea, then is the time when he will visit you with great destruction even as he has hitherto visited this land.
But Messiah, for the sake of HaShem has redeemed Zion from age to age for His own Name’s sake and created new kingdoms upon the ruins of old through the sons of God and their inherent divine right within them that has either been wasted or invested wisely with care in as many an age as there may be stars in the United States flag, but as long as she persists in ignoring the law of Jubilee she may not collect on the investment and gold turns to dross for want of use. If She loves Her sons She must desire their freedom from bondage and captivity.
False spirits that are in the world do a grave amount of damage not only to others but to themselves most dire through seeking to be as gods yet rejecting the One True God of Israel.
In Jerusalem is the faith of our fathers practiced among ruins. Yet, dayenu, it has been a joyful heritage from age to age never free from the jealousies, strife and entrapments of outsiders. Torah is an unchangeable gift that blesses each generation with new and old gifts from HaShem and is a faith that blesses all nations both near and far.
In America which is a sister kingdom, is where the faith has best become Unity in Diversity but also suffers from a grave amount of perversity in disunity, and gluttony in anarchy which clothes itself in absurdity, which is more of an anti-Torah way of death enforced with authority beguiling as witchcraft and black arts, as depraved as criminal rebellion may be in the hearts of terrorist so-called.
But, in anyone, ‘terrorist’ in intent or delusion befuddled in thought the very notion of striking terror in the faithful is such an absurdity one ought die laughing at the force which claims to be counter-terrorism. These farces are created by men with no faith claiming otherwise because they are unlawfully motivated to despoil and dare to snare those who care with statutes unfair.
There is no armor quite so buffoonish as the man armed to the teeth with the devices man made and strength his own. To fight as such is tyranny and the incarnate anti-hero.
But the inhabitants of Zion are said to be terrible, clothed with God as their armor.
I would think there are none so aware of this as the enlisted armed service member and they do their best to have fun with it, keep an easy demeanor in hard circumstances and brush off criticisms with ease of one who knows why and wherefore he serves his country, but for those who don’t it may be confusing and result in many cases of post traumatic stress disorders, and the like. Citizens must needs suppose that some or enough become involved because of legitimately heroic intentions and nobler composition than the average American may share. Hence, due reverence and gratitude, but logic and experience tells me that most soldiers must quickly ascertain that war in general is operation bat shit crazy insanity, knows of no holds barred and is lethal bloody hell.
The hero saves. And war can little be justified, much less have saving results without a priesthood, redeemer and Way Holy guarded and yet more importantly lived by saints and sages – spiritual warriors who fight not with weapons carnal but spiritual which cleanse from blood guilt both body and soul through prayer and intercession, sacrifice and offering for those taken captive by war itself in a war against themselves – a war of necessity perhaps but not justified until it receive the mark and seal of atonement, which is when divine instruction and approval take affect.
It is difficult to shepherd sheep through a war zone, as Aaron and Moshe will attest or Asaph on their behalf.
A nation divided may stand if united in the L-RD.
Alma 24:13, 14 Behold, I say unto you, Nay, let us retain our swords that they be not stained with the blood of our brethren; for perhaps, if we should stain our swords again they can no more be washed bright through the blood of the Son of our great God, which shall be shed for the atonement of our sins. And the great God has had mercy on us, and made these things known unto us that we might not perish; yea, and he has made these things known unto us beforehand, because he loveth our souls as well as he loveth our children; therefore, in his mercy he doth visit us by his angels, that the plan of salvation might be made known unto us as well as unto future generations.
As a matter of instigation, as a wayward wife, it may have had the mother of abomination’s approval as long as Gadianton has been a reality connected in anyway to the hallowed Oval Office and white washing became the political norm and nightmare ‘we the people’ have had to endure and survive but there is no reason not to end on a good note with good cheer at the arrival of good news-war’s end.
I assume, and I may be wrong and shouldn’t judge anyone involved with the system until the final results are in and any man may be proved to be impenitent of heart and spirit, and I am commanded to count all loss as gain, but I must judge the US penal system and DEA in cahoots with a Catholic Dragon as guilty as charged with all and any abuses they may be known to have committed from generation to generation in the U.S. of A.
There is zero justice done through it and no man is rightly penalized or recovered.
Recovery is blasphemy without atonement and restoration impossible without forgiveness and mercy imparted.
Where there is no atonement made mercy nor forgiveness ought to be shown and certainly no restitution paid nor may restoration or justice be achieved
The US seems only to snare the ignorant and therefore innocent, hold them until they are proved guilty and then pass sentence unjust and insane according to the whims of criminals on a never ending drinking and drug binge in complete ignorance or in denial of themselves that they have become slaves of witchcraft and lawlessness that to the uninitiated and unaware seem to be legitimate but could not be more foreign to the US Constitution and the Liberty of the sons of God than the moon may be from the sun. And the sun one must consider blameless because it has no dark side.
The world is the stage however and the recognition of lunatics has been barred from even our legal language. How much more ought they who have done so be barred from our society?
The problem obvious being that the members of government who censored themselves that they may not recognize themselves have boastfully sworn to their own condemnation and nullification of authority- probably the wisest thing they have done in decades. It is the only word in the English language that rightly describes their intentions as a political body.
Otherwise, with an armed populace and their own itchy trigger fingers, they’d be fish in a pork barrel setting themselves up for a slaughter, win or lose they are so unconcerned and unaware of their own welfare never mind the public’s, they are just spoiling for a fight, practicing suicidal tendencies, and reveling in the mire they have produced without moving a finger to labor for anyone but themselves.
Mormon 4:5 But, behold, the judgments of God will overtake the wicked; and it is by the wicked that the wicked are punished; for it is the wicked that stir up the hearts of the children of men unto bloodshed.
If you are John Q. Public, do not get involved, let able hands and knowing minds deal with the problem which shall aid the same in a quick and timely victory.
They are expecting unlawful warfare, having fully prepared for just such an eventuality.
Like Jezebel’s guard, when they have run out of prey they will turn and devour one another and she who flattered them into ignominy, depravity and loss of liberty proper. Freedom may only be maintained by keeping the law.
A dog may only chase its tail for so long till its head’s up its ass and there is no way out but through the belly of the beast. The ass may not redeem, and ye must break its neck. She sped to break neck speeds of her own volition.
Stave off the plague ye shepherds, ye know the way, scatter and gather
The only way ‘we the people’ may overcome the ill intentions of lunatics is to avoid becoming like them and learning to be wiser than they have been by changing course and righting action, while retaining the right to defend ourselves but not as the enemy within would have us, so as to slaughter as many as they may. Rather, we must fulfill our vows as Americans by resolving conflicts, subduing our baser natures and the spirits of creatures both small and great; and through repentance, atonement, faith and reconciliatory means of persuasion just, holy, and true, restore the American Dream and birth the reality we all may be blessed to share and enjoy if we follow through, which is the root of the word Success, not fail.
There is a good way of judging legitimate crime that has nothing to do with becoming bees in a trap or snares in a bird house full of them.
True, real, and lasting justice is not to be attained by entrusting judgment to men, much less women, no matter how intelligent or wise they may seem or talented in the law practiced they may be,
All mankind should be devoted to the cause of justice and willing to entrust judgment to a redeeming and saving judge, not to one who condemns the ignorant and pardons the wealthy.
Get involved but do not judge.
Behold, I send you forth as semi-intelligent, semi-sane, (forgive, I boast!) kind of weird and very strange and peculiar sheep and shepherds in the midst of lunatics and wolves bent on your and their destruction. Therefore, be wise as serpents, gentle as doves, and zany as you like, seeking not but God’s justice and mercy and His kingdom we shall obtain, for it is written:
Doctrine and Covenants 128:22
Brethren, shall we not go on in so great a cause? Go forward and not backward. Courage, brethren; and on, on to the victory! Let your hearts rejoice, and be exceedingly glad. Let the earth break forth into singing. Let the dead speak forth anthems of eternal praise to the King Immanuel, who hath ordained, before the world was, that which would enable us to redeem them out of their prison; for the prisoners shall go free.
More to come soon, God willing…
