Forget About Anonymous

If I could wish for anything at this point it would be this: forget about this Anonymous fellow. I’ve done everything I can to avoid a following. My blog and books have one purpose, that is to provide some help for you to receive personal revelation so that you can know the Lord for yourself.

I am amazed at those who have distinct followings, who continue to mention me and take issue with what I do. The words I write are for those who benefit from it. There has been wonderful fruit as I ‘ve received numerous letters from those who are coming to the Lord. For some it is more of a struggle and I endeavor to help them.

When the Savior came to the people of Bountiful one of the first things he did is stop the contention:

For verily, verily I say unto you, he that hath the spirit of contention is not of me, but is of the devil, who is the father of contention, and he stirreth up the hearts of men to contend with anger, one with another. Behold, this is not my doctrine, to stir up the hearts of men with anger, one against another; but this is my doctrine, that such things should be done away. Behold, verily, verily, I say unto you, I will declare unto you my doctrine. And this is my doctrine, and it is the doctrine which the Father hath given unto me; and I bear record of the Father, and the Father beareth record of me, and the Holy Ghost beareth record of the Father and me; and I bear record that the Father commandeth all men, everywhere, to repent and believe in me.(3 Nephi 11:29-32)

If you read this blog and it doesn’t help you, that’s okay. If you prayed about it, as I hope you would, and are told it is not for you, that’s okay. If you read and the Spirit bears witness that you need to continue to study, then do it.

I hope when the day comes when you know who I am, and you see me with my warts and all, that you will understand why I did this.

It’s only about you and the Lord.

Samuel the Prophet

The following is a portion of my journal where I was shown parts of Samuel’s life. The Lord would speak with me and the vision would open as if I was there. It felt as if I was, so I’m not sure. Pray for your own confirmation.

————————————

I asked about Samuel, the son of Hannah who was a great prophet to the Israelites. I saw Hannah married to Elkanah the Priest. They were happy, but it became apparent she could not bear children. Her younger sister was given to Elkanah to bear children. Hannah was without child for many years until her prayers were answered by the Lord. I saw a woman in her mid-thirties, lighter hair, praying to God for a miracle. Her miracle was the conception of Samuel. I saw her taking the little child to the temple north of Jerusalem. He was a ginger haired little boy, very cute and mild mannered. The temple was not very extravagant. It had a wall of fabric around it, with a large stone structure. It seemed simpler compared to the Temple of Solomon.

I saw Samuel older, about eight years of age, asleep on a couch in a lounge area near where they lived. Here he was awakened by the Lord and thinking it was Eli (pronounced Eele’) he three times went to him to ask what was wanted. Upon returning to his couch he was given the revelation from the Lord the exact words to tell Eli. It was an announcement that the Lord would remove his family as the custodians of the sacred temple and that they had brought a cursing upon them. Eli was sad, but more depressed than astonished.

I saw a great battle between the Israelites and Philistines. I noticed the Israelites wore light clothing with armor that would drench red in blood during battle. The Philistines wore darker cloth with darker brass armor.

I saw Eli hear of his two-son’s death and the taking of the Ark of the Covenant. He put his head up and began to pray with great cries of anguish as he stepped backward, fell, hitting his head on a stone, and died.

I saw Samuel as an older man, the prophet, and ruler or judge over the people. He was a low key, often quiet person. His hair looked very soft and light. He had a gentle personality, soft spoken. The people desired a king that would give them great prestige among the nations. The Lord instructed Samuel to give them Saul. Saul was what the people wanted. He looked the part, tall, dark, and kingly; but he also was weak in faith and warlike. When Saul failed to follow a commandment of the Lord to kill every person among the Amalekites he was cursed and told that another would be chosen. I asked the Lord why? I saw that the Amalekites and those that were the inhabitants of the city of Jericho were among the giant race of Nephilim. These were an abomination to the Lord. The seed of a mixture of Adamites and seed of men that bread giants, inhabited by evil spirits. Their works were profane and violent. The Lord required that all living amongst them be destroyed. Because Saul failed to follow the Lord’s command, He rescinded his blessing.

What is an Ordinance?

What is an ordinance? It is a prescribed law or ceremony, directed by the Lord, to point our minds and spirits toward its spiritual manifestation.

Here are some examples of ordinances introduced by Joseph Smith in this last dispensation:

  • Baptisms for the Dead
  • Washing and Anointing (Points to the receiving of the Gift of the Holy Ghost and First Resurrection.)
  • Endowment (Points to the process of Ascension.)
  • Ordaining of Melchizedek Priesthood (Invitation to receive the authority to use the gifts of the Spirit in His name in the fullness.)
  • Marriage Sealing (Points to the establishment of a permanent union under the Everlasting Covenant.)
  • Second Anointing (Points to the Calling and Election Made Sure)
  • Sealing to the Church of the Firstborn (Not since Joseph Smith, sealing of others to him as proxy for the Savior.)

There is little understood about the true nature of these ordinances, as they are often taken at face value and assumed in some cases to be sealed upon us by means of the earthly ordinance. Joseph Smith said the following:

“Could we read and comprehend all that has been written from the days of Adam, on the relation of man to God and angels in a future state, we should know very little about it. Reading the experience of others, or the revelation given to them, can never give us a comprehensive view of our condition and true relation to God. Knowledge of these things can only be obtained by experience through the ordinances of God set forth for that purpose. Could you gaze into heaven five minutes, you would know more than you would by reading all that ever was written on the subject. … I assure the Saints that truth … can and may be known through the revelations of God in the way of His ordinances, and in answer to prayer.” (History of the Church, 6:50–51;  from a discourse given by Joseph Smith on Oct. 9, 1843, in Nauvoo, Illinois; reported by Willard Richards and Times and Seasons, Sept. 15, 1843, p. 331; this issue of the Times and Seasons was published late.)

In order for you to understand these ordinances you must ponder their significance and then seek personal revelation that the mysteries of God may be unfolded to you. In the future there will be additional ordinances made available that will teach and prepare one to receive the fullness of the Everlasting Covenant. The purpose of the temple/house/school of the Lord is to prepare us to receive all things. Pure temple worship will be perfected and made whole during the Millennium as the Church of the Firstborn, under the His direction, is established.

Lehi Taught a Mystery

The prophet Lehi knew many mysteries regarding the Lord’s purposes for the people of this world. This passage of the Book of Mormon was the first to touch upon this in no other way mentioned in the Bible. Some of these are also written about in the Book of Moses and Abraham. These are my personal “spiritual translations,” pray for your own confirmation.

18 And because he had fallen from heaven, [lost his glory] and had become miserable [restricted] forever, he sought also the misery of all mankind. Wherefore, he said unto Eve, yea, even that old serpent, [former being of light] who is the devil, who is the father of all lies, wherefore he said: Partake of the forbidden fruit [forbidden knowledge], and ye shall not die, but ye shall be as God, knowing good and evil. [a mystery]

19 And after Adam and Eve had partaken of the forbidden fruit they were driven out of the garden of Eden, [a place of God] to till the earth. [mortality]

20 And they have brought forth children; yea, even the family of all the earth. [the seed of Adam in a covenant world]

21 And the days [life] of the children of men [seed of men] were prolonged, [an extention] according to the will of God, that they might repent while in the flesh; [come to Him]  wherefore, their state  [estate] became a state of probation, [2nd] and their time [time of their judgment] was lengthened, according to the commandments which the Lord God gave unto the children of men. For he gave commandment that all men must repent [choose God]; for he showed unto all men that they were lost, because of the transgression of their parents. [All of these were without salvation because of the turning from God by their forebears.]

22 And now, behold, if Adam had not transgressed [deviated from the course] he would not have fallen [condescended], but he would have remained in the garden of Eden. [The place close to God] And all things which were created must have remained in the same state [estate] in which they were after they were created; and they must have remained forever, and had no end.

23 And they would have had no children; [bore children in mortality] wherefore they would have remained in a state of innocence, [without the law] having no joy, [the knowledge of God] for they knew no misery; [restricted] doing no good, for they knew no sin. [must first know sin to be made clean and exalted in Christ]

24 But behold, all things have been done in the wisdom [knowing the beginning from the end] of him who knoweth all things.

25 Adam fell [condescended] that men might be; [become holy] and men are, that they might have joy. [receive a fullness of their creation]

26 And the Messiah cometh in the fulness of time, [full-filling of prophecy] that he may redeem the children of men from the fall. [The mortal world is a dissension of glory, a state of uncleanliness.] And because that they are redeemed from the fall they have become free forever, knowing good from evil; to act for themselves [God’s way for Eternal Life] and not to be acted upon, [Satan’s way] save it be by the punishment of the law at the great and last day, according to the commandments which God hath given. [God’s judgment to those who choose Satan.]

27 Wherefore, men are free according to the flesh; and allthings [good and bad] are given them which are expedient unto man. And they are free to choose liberty and eternal life, through the great Mediator of all men, or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil; for he seeketh that all men might be miserable [restricted] like unto himself. (2 Nephi 2:18-27)

Dispensations

I wrote the following: ”I asked if my revelation regarding Dominions and Dispensations when studying the Hierarchy of Angels was correct and was told, “Yes.” There are eight major dispensations starting with Adam and ending with Joseph Smith, with the seventh about to begin. These dispensations are broken down with “Times,” in which certain things transpire. I am grateful for the clarification.” (A Witness of the Temporal Dispensations, pg. 15)

There are eight total dispensations. Joseph Smith is the head of the sixth, which is ending. Each dispensation is the opening of a seal which restores a specific priesthood. The priesthood which will be restored in the Seventh Dispensation is the higher priesthood of Melchizedek. This is required to usher in the Times of the Gathering of Israel and establishment of Zion.

“And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.” Revelation 7:2-4

From the servants of God will be selected a group that will go forth and gather the remnants of the House of Israel. This will usher in the Seventh Dispensation before the coming of the Lord. The Last Dispensation begins at the end of the Millennium.
