What Was Amulek Saying?

I have written for the sake of clarity some notes regarding the words of Amulek as he spoke to the apostate Zoramites. Some of these same false traditions exist today, and more:

Yea, I would that ye would come forth and harden not your hearts any longer; for behold, now is the time and the day of your salvation; [This is the moment for you.] and therefore, if ye will repent and harden not your hearts, immediately shall the great plan of redemption be brought about unto you. [The redemption shall come through baptism and the Holy Ghost.] For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; [Focus upon now, not later, to set the wheel in motion for you to come to the Lord.] yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors. [Mortality is where you prepare.] And now, as I said unto you before, as ye have had so many witnesses, therefore, I beseech of you that ye do not procrastinate the day of your repentance until the end; [Do not suppose you will take our words serious at a later time] for after this day of life, which is given us to prepare for eternity, behold, if we do not improve our time while in this life, then cometh the night of darkness wherein there can be no labor performed. [You cannot improve your situation outside of mortality.] Ye cannot say, when ye are brought to that awful crisis, that I will repent, that I will return to my God. Nay, ye cannot say this; for that same spirit which doth possess your bodies at the time that ye go out of this life, that same spirit will have power to possess your body in that eternal world. [We carry whatever level of glory we attain in this life to the next.] For behold, if ye have procrastinated the day of your repentance even until death, [This counsel is specific to their belief that they could seek wickedness and sin and then make it good before they die.] behold, ye have become subjected to the spirit of the devil, and he doth seal you his; therefore, the Spirit of the Lord hath withdrawn from you, and hath no place in you, and the devil hath all power over you; and this is the final state of the wicked. (Alma 34:31-35)

There is a great misconception amongst the followers of Christ, that simply do not see the importance of immediate repentance, that in the next life we can do all the polishing necessary to come to the Lord.

What is the purpose of this life? That purpose was decided before you were born. For some it is to experience the flesh. For others, because of previous covenants, it is to grow in grace from one glory to the next, as we come unto Christ (Everlasting Covenant). For others, it is to grow in darkness; as they too made a covenant to do so. The Lord’s desire is that we come unto Him and He has created that opportunity according to our desires.

When this life is over, depending upon the covenant made, you will continue on the path you have chosen. There are many complexities and mysteries associated with the covenants made; but as Amulek correctly stated, you cannot suppose that if you do not change now, that your trajectory will change after you have died.

If you seek the Lord with all your heart, laying everything upon the alter for Him, crying out to the Lord for mercy, you will receive the blessings of the New Covenant, and continue in grace until the perfect day.

There is a mystery contained in these passages, both the words of Amulek and the chapters written by Alma. Some of these scriptures allude to a multiple mortality scenario, and others imply that this is our one shot. Many things are not as they appear. The resurrection is not as it appears. Now, is the day of your salvation; and as you grow “grace for grace” you will find that life is a continuation of glory, or damnation, depending upon what you seek.

    Thanks for the encouragement and the increased light. Truly to have our incomings and our outgoings be consumed in Jesus that we might grow in glory through him should be our for-most prioritized / disciplined pursuit.

    Thank you for the insight in to these scriptures. This Had me pondering more deeply in the subject.

    Wouldn’t these principles apply regardless of whether there is multiple mortalities or one? Can you elaborate on your understanding of multiple mortalities as it relates to these scriptures? Lastly, what do you mean that many things/resurrection is not as it appears?

  3. I cannot elaborate, because the topic is one that I am not permitted to write on. I can try and shine a light to help, but theses are mysteries which are part of the Everlasting Covenant. This link is where I touch more on resurrection:

  8. You said “Taking the Sacrament helps to make us holy before the Lord as we prepare to approach Him. It is a reminder of our received covenant or promise of a future covenant we will make when we receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost.”
    Can you explain the covenant we make when we receive the gift of the Holy Ghost?

  9. I will be describing this in great detail in the forthcoming book How To Open Your Spiritual Eyes. The power of the Sacrament is in witnessing to the Lord our commitment to be one with Him. It can point toward a future bestowal of the Holy Ghost and more.

  12. Hello I can’t remember where I read it exactly, but in one of your blog articles you spoke of beings of darkness being able to progress, but the just increase in darkness rather than light. That makes sense.

    I am not in a place where you are, connecting with the heavenly realm as you do. However I have received information and I am trying to sort it out. One truth that I keep getting confirmed back to me over and over is that “i” am infinite and eternal and there is nothing else. The second part to this “truth” is that there are infinite possibilities. In other words there is no “self” cuz what makes me and you is the same thing. And we are essentially the same thing. Seperateness is an illusion. As far as reality goes, anything and absolutely anything is possible. Scientific laws and all those discoveies are vaild only because mass consciousness ascertains it to be so. But they can be transmuted through and become irrelevant should “one” have the faith to do so. I come from the land of quantum physics and the science suggests this stuff is real. Anyways i find conflict in this and sortimg out the doctrines of mormonism, which i also have a strong spiritual witness of truth to Does that way of thinking make sense? My question is what is your thoughts on that, and if I may be bold enough to ask, would you be willing to ask Jesus and see what he says? That request may be inappropriate to ask and I apologize if it is.

    The other part I wonder about is with this way of thinking, if possibilities are infinite than the black and white way of thinking that judeo-christian theology brings seems to be a limited way of thinking of things. Like a binary code of on and offs that only a brain or a computer can comprehend, duality seems to suggest that.

    When I got what I think is my C&E made sure. (It’s confusing, I may just be deceived) I was told by the person who did it, that you got to think infinite dimension rather than black and white, light and dark, etc. He used the reference of the clock hours where you have 1 through 12 numbers but the “lucky” number 13 is up above the clock and where the superstitious feeling of fear or darkness or whatever is the connection to another awakening or progression or portal or whatever to another dimension etc. Like we are trapped in duality because that is the only way out mind can comprehend reality, being a computer, with opposites, a switch of on and off, if you will. Does that make sense?

    So the scary question I have is, is the glory of darkness, only appear dark to us because it is on the opposite way of thinking compared to how we think or is there really only 2 types of progressive realities, dark and light? If it is infinite realities, then how do we reconcile all this stuff? Or am I just deceived?

    Stuff that for some reason has been deeply troubling me as of late cuz I assume it begs the thought that all this stuff is just a bunch of fanciful illusions in order to please the great infinite consciousness.

    I hope these questions aren’t too much out there, lol. Sometimes I feel w ierd asking such things. Thanks for entertaining it!

  13. Yes, the darkness adds upon itself too. Each of us are a unique intelligence that is a part of a whole under God’s dominion unless we choose darkness. But, we are distinct individuals. In my new book, which I am waiting for the editor to finish, I discuss the calling and election made sure in detail. This is not something that anyone but Jesus Christ can offer.

    So as light and dark continue to expand – do the levels of righteousness and wickedness continue to increase to even newer levels? For example, as our Savior has taken on His mission is the evil He faces worse/darker than those that were Saviors before Him? And therefore a Savior following will be faced with an even higher level of wickedness than what our Savior dealt with? I’m just trying to wrap my head around the concept of eternal expansion/increase. And since there is an equal opposition in all things – both sides must be increasing in knowledge as they expand.

    I believe there are infinite possibilities within the realms of darkness and Light (and 2nd estate/telestial beings too). All things follow a “universal law of application” which means outcomes occur according to the eternal principles that are broken or fulfilled, determining the kingdom it occurs in. All Intelligences follow the same patterns for the kingdom it earned but occur in diverse variances within those patterns. Accordig to the law of universal application,
    set patterns for developments are the same for all which means an eternal duality does in fact exist.

    Even among Intelligences (which was never created or destroyed) there is opposition, intelligences that act or are acted upon. Those which act are a neautral matter (if you can call it that) that can either add upon itself Light or darkness according to its choices… Sorry, that question wasn’t aimed at me but I felt prompted to comment. I hope it helps.

  19. Thank you for your comment. For me, it seems when I get vulnerable to ask a question which terrifies me, for i fear rejection, (as my question did) I am able to release something and progress. This past week has been full of light and knowledge, and my concern has been put to rest. My confidence and faith in the savior has increased much. Thank you again!

    I have another question, what is meant by sign of the dove and form of the dove? This is what I found regarding the subject, from LDS scripture app:

    Dove, sign of

    A prearranged means by which John the Baptist would recognize the Messiah at Jesus’ baptism (John 1:32–34). “The sign of the dove was instituted before the creation of the world, a witness for the Holy Ghost, and the devil cannot come in the sign of a dove. … The sign of a dove was given to John to signify the truth of the deed, as the dove is an emblem or token of truth and innocence” (Joseph Smith, HC 5:261). See 1 Ne. 11:27; 2 Ne. 31:8; D&C 93:15; Abr., fac. 2, fig. 7. Though we usually associate the sign of the dove with John the Baptist, from the latter reference we learn that it was manifested to Abraham also. We suppose that it has been similarly made known to other prophets on occasion since the time of Adam.

  20. God promised John the Baptist that he would recognize the true Messiah by seeing certain things; one of which was the sign of the dove. It was a spiritual manifestation. It has a special meaning which you will be able to glean after reading the new book I’m soon to release How To Open Your Spiritual Eyes. The meaning is associated with the Holy Spirit of Promise.

  22. Any sickness, including mental illness can be challenging. The Lord takes such into account and different kinds of help is provided including the ministering of angels. I wrote a little about this in the chapter that reviews issues that can make it difficult. The Lord will not deny any blessings to those who seek Him.
