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.

  1. Anonymous, I pray that you ignore any malcontents that seek to control/destroy what you are doing and you continue as you are. I can’t tell you how thankful I am for what you have shared as it has helped inspire me to continue my path with the Lord. There are those of us who get it, and your part in it. I don’t expect to duplicate what you have done because my path is my own with the Lord, but you have helped open my eye of faith to greater possibilities. You have inspired me to stretch beyond my self-limitations. You have helped stoke a fire within me to continue at all costs. I’m better off with you than without you… warts and all. Having said that it’s not about you, or me, or any other mortal it’s about Christ and Christ alone. Those of us who get you don’t consider you “our leader” (unless God declares it), but accept your contribution for exactly what you put it out there as. I’ve seen too others stifled because of radical groups that want to herd everyone into their way of thinking and I hope this post you just shared is not that. Please know we’re out there. And reading, and praying about what we read AND focusing on the Lord.

    For those of you who feel the same, please open your mouths and your voice.

  3. Anonymous, my friend. I consider you my friend because of the lifting help you have shared with me. You have inspired me to continue working toward Christ. It had become discouraging until I was led to your blog posts and books. Those who seek to be critical or seem to want superiority in some way are usually afraid of something. You have shown great courage. I live in a small town in Wyoming and so am not exposed to any group desiring my membership or following, though I know such groups are out there. I am grateful for your suggestions and the knowledge you share. It inspires me to ask the Lord not only for confirmation, but for more. May the Lord bless you.

    I get that my friend. I totally get that. I am also making my own effort to avoid personalizing this on you, because you, and the Spirit of the Lord, have made it very clear that your role is to guide us to have our own experiences with the Lord, to show that it is possible. Even for an ordinary person. Yet, none of us is ordinary, and that is a special part of the wonderful discoveries that you helped us to have, that each of us is tremendously special. I will add that the Lord have provided me with multiple means to assist in my spiritual awakening, just like He did with Amulek and scores of others. So I suppose this is probably true for everybody who is a friend to you: we are receiving “further light and truth” from more than one means, and it all comes from Father. And because of that, I know that you are sincere and a pure source, because what I receive from you, even if sometimes comes with a bit of surprise element, it matches and harmonizes perfectly with all else that the Lord has revealed to humble, tiny me.
    I have reported back to you some of my progress in following the inspired leads you gave, but only a little bit. And I feel bad that I haven’t reported all that I could, and probably should have told you more. The main reason is that it is not easy to communicate those. As you know. And I commend you for the great work you have done in communicating your experiences. I have followed some of your “instructions” and have had some marvelous results. Please forgive me if I haven’t shared more. Another reason I didn’t is because I didn’t want to bother you. When I try to write I always end up writing several paragraphs which you would have to take the time to read, understand and answer.. And I know you have a busy life like most of us do.
    But this is what I really mean to say to you: thank you my brother. What you just wrote, above, is enough proof that what you have done for our benefit have cost you personal sacrifice. I shall never forget that, ever, ever. I am out of words now…. God bless you, true friend.

    I love that you encourage the pure link to Christ. Jacob, Nephi’s little brother (similar to you) taught with such beautiful conviction on the importance of ones most important connection to Christ.

    2nephi9:

    …41 O then, my beloved brethren, come unto the Lord, the Holy One. Remember that his paths are righteous. Behold, the way for man is narrow, but it lieth in a straight course before him, and the keeper of the gate is the Holy One of Israel; and he employeth no servant there; and there is none other way save it be by the gate; for he cannot be deceived, for the Lord God is his name.
    42 And whoso knocketh, to him will he open; and the wise, and the learned, and they that are rich, who are puffed up because of their learning, and their wisdom, and their riches—yea, they are they whom he despiseth; and save they shall cast these things away, and consider themselves fools before God, and come down in the depths of humility, he will not open unto them.
    43 But the things of the wise and the prudent shall be hid from them forever—yea, that happiness which is prepared for the saints.
    44 O, my beloved brethren, remember my words. Behold, I take off my garments, and I shake them before you; I pray the God of my salvation that he view me with his all-searching eye; wherefore, ye shall know at the last day, when all men shall be judged of their works, that the God of Israel did witness that I shook your iniquities from my soul, and that I stand with brightness before him, and am rid of your blood.
    45 O, my beloved brethren, turn away from your sins; shake off the chains of him that would bind you fast; come unto that God who is the rock of your salvation.
    46 Prepare your souls for that glorious day when justice shall be administered unto the righteous, even the day of judgment, that ye may not shrink with awful fear; that ye may not remember your awful guilt in perfectness, and be constrained to exclaim: Holy, holy are thy judgments, O Lord God Almighty—but I know my guilt; I transgressed thy law, and my transgressions are mine; and the devil hath obtained me, that I am a prey to his awful misery.
    47 But behold, my brethren, is it expedient that I should awake you to an awful reality of these things? Would I harrow up your souls if your minds were pure? Would I be plain unto you according to the plainness of the truth if ye were freed from sin?
    48 Behold, if ye were holy I would speak unto you of holiness; but as ye are not holy, and ye look upon me as a teacher, it must needs be expedient that I teach you the consequences of sin.
    49 Behold, my soul abhorreth sin, and my heart delighteth in righteousness; and I will praise the holy name of my God.
    50 Come, my brethren, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters; and he that hath no money, come buy and eat; yea, come buy wine and milk without money and without price.
    51 Wherefore, do not spend money for that which is of no worth, nor your labor for that which cannot satisfy. Hearken diligently unto me, and remember the words which I have spoken; and come unto the Holy One of Israel, and feast upon that which perisheth not, neither can be corrupted, and let your soul delight in fatness.
    52 Behold, my beloved brethren, remember the words of your God; pray unto him continually by day, and give thanks unto his holy name by night. Let your hearts rejoice.

    I can’t but help think of those who follow the similar admonishen and Christ centered words of joy that you give P.R. You know, folks like Jacob’s son Enos:

    Behold, it came to pass that I, Enos, knowing my father that he was a just man—for he taught me in his language, and also in the nurture and admonition of the Lord—and blessed be the name of my God for it—
    2 And I will tell you of the wrestle which I had before God, before I received a remission of my sins.
    3 Behold, I went to hunt beasts in the forests; and the words which I had often heard my father speak concerning eternal life, and the joy of the saints, sunk deep into my heart.
    4 And my soul hungered; and I kneeled down before my Maker, and I cried unto him in mighty prayer and supplication for mine own soul; and all the day long did I cry unto him; yea, and when the night came I did still raise my voice high that it reached the heavens.
    5 And there came a voice unto me, saying: Enos, thy sins are forgiven thee, and thou shalt be blessed.
    6 And I, Enos, knew that God could not lie; wherefore, my guilt was swept away.
    7 And I said: Lord, how is it done?
    8 And he said unto me: Because of thy faith in Christ, whom thou hast never before heard nor seen. And many years pass away before he shall manifest himself in the flesh; wherefore, go to, thy faith hath made thee whole.

    “Blessed be the name of our God” for the pure revelations you have taught us P.R… We are growing! we are receiving! 🤟

    I bug you all the time, so sorry for that. But I Love you Brother! When the time comes for you to reveal who you are, those who struggle, if they listen to Yeshua Hamashiach, will have no concern. Warts and all. I will admit that I put you on a pedestal when I first read your experiences. I compared them to others, and even, at some point, used them as a test to confirm others testimonies. But now, thanks to your testimony, I ONLY worry about myself and MY relationship with my Savior, Yeshua Hamashiach. He brought me to you and now you have helped bring me to Him. What a wonderful God we serve!

    Finding your writings has been an answer to personal prayer for truth and light. It has brought about the best spiritual discussions between my husband and I. It has opened us up to the possibility of having a personal relationship with our Savior. We are so grateful for that. Thank you

    Hello Brother,

    I hope that this doesn’t mean you’re going anywhere: based on one of your responses I don’t believe it does. But in case you have been directed otherwise, to refrain from further contributions, please know of my personal appreciation. Since I have come across your blog and books since the beginning of May, I have felt a clearer direction and constant climb upward to Him that I’ve never before experienced. He has confirmed His desire to bring me into His presence many times in the past 11 years, calling me out of my sins and the world. He directed me to your witness, and it gives me clarity and peace when I read it. I look forward to the day that we can know each other, and that by then, God willing, I will be Servant and Witness alongside you to usher in His coming, and we can appreciate not only each other’s “warts”, but glory in the Light we are given to use to bring others to Him.

    May the Lord continue to bless you for your willingness to share your witness.

    Hope to hear again from you soon.

    In my case I prayed about it and got a positive answer, and that’s why I’m still here, and I got to say because of the light you shared with us I’ve been able to grow closer to God in so much, to the point that I crave it, even when I start to drift I quickly focus on the Savior, and remember why I’m doing this to have the baptism of fire and eventually the Second Comforter. If it’s for you you will embrace it, and if it’s not you will go some place else. His sheeps will hear His voice and will come to Him.

    I’m pretty new here and there are some things that seem a little far out but most everything I’ve read so far makes sense to me and has encouraged me (and motivating me) to be much more diligent in coming to Christ. I’m not discounting anything but am praying and seeking confirmation not just about things I’ve read here but on other questions I already had before I got here. I know you’re sincere and I truly appreciate all the time you’ve put into helping others really find Christ.

    Bless you and your family.

    PS. I haven’t read anything negative, anywhere, that was ‘spoken’ about you but if I do, I will know what to say (and not say). Take care 🙂

    I have a question that occurred to me during my BoM reading today. The thought occurred to me in the past, but I dismissed it because God knows our thoughts and the intents of our hearts. Mosiah 12:35-36 reads…

    35 Thou shalt have no other God before me.

    36 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything in heaven above, or things which are in the earth beneath.

    A whole lot of people in the world have pictures, jewelry, statues, etc. that remind them of our Savior. My parents did when I was growing up, and I do in our home. Though it does not look much like him, I am particularly fond of the classic painting “Christ in Red Robe”. I also have a miniature, 18″, replica of the “Christus”. And, such things are throughout our church buildings, visitor’s centers, and temples. I am not sure how to, reconcile this passage of scripture with our common practice. I know the Savior is not offended by our sincere love and admiration. I can only surmise there is a very basic concept I have missed. I am inclined to think the scripture passage refers to pagan images, but…..

    Also, I firmly believe the time will come when it will be mortally dangerous to have such things on display in our homes. Would it offend our Lord to hide such things during times of extreme turmoil to preserve our lives? There are a whole lot of people on the other side of the veil that can serve the Lord there; not so many on this side, relatively speaking, so I would prefer to be able to continue serving on this side as long as I am able. Your thoughts?

    Thank you,

    Rob Taylor

  15. I have not asked the Lord about that, but He has never mentioned it, and there is much art in the Heavenly Realm. My only thought is that it is in context to what was occurring amongst the Hebrews and their idol worship tendencies.

    If I may add my understanding about this, it is all about context. Idolatry seemed to have been a serious problem during King Noah’s reign in the Land of Nephi.
    The full text, revealed in Exodus 20, is better, more clearly understood with the next verse (Exodus 20:5). Otherwise, just about any artistic painting or sculpture would be forbidden, if we were to take verse 4 in it’s most literal sense.

  19. A kingdom is another word for “dominion,” and there are many dominions in the realm of Heaven. When speaking of twelve kingdoms, this is a reference to the twelve tribes of Israel, the seed of Adam which partook of the Everlasting Covenant before the foundation of the world. The hierarchy of angels referred to as the “Dominions” or the 144 thousand Just Men and Women made perfect, are assigned to come to each of these kingdoms in their proper hour to nourish and help them in their journey.
