I said on link 2 that Moses understood all of the ancient promises of God to his people.  And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds.” Acts 7: 22  Moses had read the ancient records.

Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”   Genesis 26: 5

Realize that Abraham was almost 500 years before Moses, and he did have the commands, statutes, and laws of God to keep. Moses was just the man we accept as having recorded them.  Abraham obeyed the statutes! We don’t. I have been traveling in July and thinking how to show you what has been revealed to me that is a mystery to others. Scriptures have come to my mind, so I will try to show you what happened, “if” you will just believe in God’s words.

“AND the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, that they turn and encamp before Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baal-zephon: before it shall ye encamp by the sea.
3 For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They are entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in.  (Mountains on both sides.)

4 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, that he shall follow after them; and I will be honoured upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host; that the Egyptians may know that I am the LORD.  And they did so.
5 And it was told the king of Egypt that the people fled: and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned against the people, and they said, Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go from serving us?”       Exodus 14: 1 -5  

(Now have you ever walked through a wall? Or do you go to the doorway? Why? Because the wall is solid. Hard and firm. Remember in the last link # 3 that I did  show you that they all had “shoes” on their feet. In May of 2003 some explorer walked right to the North Pole. Hundreds of miles on ice. His rescue plane had to drop supplies because the ice was melting and they couldn’t land on the ice sheet that was floating over the North Pole. He was later picked up by some ship. And you all know what happens when Jell-O “congeals” and is cold. Walking across 8 miles of ice with ‘shoes’ on makes it just like cold solid ground. At 2 miles per hour (a slow walk) it takes just about four (4) hours. With everyone spread out about ½ mile wide, and at random the ice held them up OKSome had reached the middle before the last of them left the shore. But when the Egyptians followed at morning time daylight the horses and chariots sank in the soft ice and slush and then they sank, as the ice melted in the morning sunlight!   Here is what the scriptures say:

“And Moses stretched out his hand (The Rod of God- from Reuel’s garden, Link 1)  over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, (All NIGHT) and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. (Hard on top, and wet below. The East wind chilled the water into ice on top.)
And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: (walked on the ice with ‘shoes’ on because 8 miles on ice barefoot is real hard to do) and the waters were a wall (Solids) unto them on their right hand, and on their left.   (The land ‘ice’ bridge was about a mile wide, and just 8 miles across.)
23 And the Egyptians pursued, and went in (on the ice) after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots, and his horsemen.

24 And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the LORD looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians,
      (That in the morning watch! As the daylight came!)
25 And took off (“OFF”- made them hard to drive in slush) their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: (hard for horses to pull) so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; (turn back to the shore) for the LORD fighteth for them against the Egyptians.  
  (With the chariots in “slush.”--- God can take the wheels off your car, ‘chariot with horsepower’ in a deep snowstorm, you can’t even move your car!   Your wheels are gone! And you can’t even move!)

26 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand (Rod) over the sea, that the waters may come again (from the ice) upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen.
27 And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, (at sunrise) and the sea returned to his strength (waves) when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst (miles from shore) of the sea.

28 And the waters returned, (melted) and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.
29 But the children of Israel walked (with shoes) upon dry land (cold ice) in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall (solid) unto them on their right hand, and on their left.  (They firmed up solid just like when Jello congeals.)
30 Thus the LORD saved Israel that day (night) out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore.   (As morning came.)
And Israel saw that great work which the LORD did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the LORD, and believed the LORD, and his servant Moses.”      Exodus 14: 21- 31 
                                                                                                       (sinking begins from the top)
“Thou didst blow with thy (warm) wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.”     Exodus 15: 10

“THEN sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea
They ‘sank’ out on the ice!)
2 The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him.
3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.

4 Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.     (The Gulf of Aqaba on the Red Sea.)
The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.
6 Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.
7 And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble.
8 And with the blast of thy nostrils (East wind) the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright (solid) as an heap, and the depths were congealed (like Jell-O) in the heart of the sea (The East coast of the USA has very cold, NOR Easters sometimes, just ask East coaster’s how cold they get.)

9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
10 Thou didst blow with thy (warm) wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.                 (When the ice melted.)                                            (sank)
(That was more a miracle than the movie story. Huh!)
11 Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods?  who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
12 Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them. (In death.)
Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.
14 The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.”      Exodus 15: 1-14 

“Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.
10 By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.” (made hard).      Job 37: 9- 10       (Remember the ‘East' wind,
like a Nor’easter on the east coast of the USA, very cold!)

“Hath the rain a father?  or who hath begotten the drops of dew?
29 Out of whose womb came the ice?  and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it? 
Water becomes just like a stone-rock! Hard “ice.”)
30 The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.”      Job 38: 28- 30   
( Just like “Stone Cold!” )

The Lord covenants to make Israel a peculiar treasure, a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation—
The People sanctify themselves—Then Lord appears on Sinai amid fire and smoke and earthquakes.  
The real Sinai
, was after they crossed the Red Sea and were in the land of Midian.
Do you remember that the Egyptians came upon them just
5 days after they began the Exodus!
Where they were
camped by the Red Sea.   See Link # 3

IN the third (3rd.) month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai.
2 For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount.  (Sinai in Midian, or North Arabia as we call it today.)
3 And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;  (Remember God had commanded Moses “to go to Egypt” from the mountain IN Midian, called Mount Horeb see link # 2.)
4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.  (Here in Midian.)

5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:
6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation.  These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.”   Exodus 19:1-6

Israel presses forward to their promised landThey pass through lands of Esau and of Ammon (Jordan's Capital today is 'Amman' –today)
THEN we turned, and took our journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea, as the LORD spake unto me: and we compassed mount Seir many days.
2 And the LORD spake unto me, saying,  (They are in Midian now.)
3 Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: (40 years) turn you northward.
4 And command thou the people, saying, Ye are to pass through the coast of your brethren the children of Esau, which dwell in Seir; and they shall be afraid of you: take ye good heed unto yourselves therefore:
5 Meddle not with them; for I will not give you of their land, no, not so much as a foot breadth; because I have given mount Seir unto Esau for a possession.”         Deuteronomy 2:1-5                                                 

Because ‘Esau’ was descended from Abraham also, he had some promise.
Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”   Genesis 26: 5

You know that Abraham was about 500 years before Moses, and that he did have the commands, statutes, and laws of God to keep. Moses was just the man we accept as having recorded them.
“Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.” John 8: 39

Because, just like Abraham did in Genesis 49: 30-31   I purchased my block of family grave plots decades ago in the Parowan cemetery. I can read what God has commanded, so I have tried to obey. Do you know of anyone else that has done the works of Abraham?   I get emails from time to time calling me all kinds of names. Scoffers and all kinds of threats! But that is to be expected from the self-righteous hypocrites who think they are not going to die.

God has said:
“Thou art not yet as Job; thy friends do not contend against thee, neither charge thee with transgression, as they did Job.
11 And they who do charge thee with transgression, their hope shall be blasted, and their prospects shall melt away as the hoar frost melteth before the burning rays of the rising sun;   (Just like the Egyptians they will die.)
12 And also that God hath set his hand and seal to change the times and seasons, and to blind their minds, that they may not understand his marvelous workings; that he may prove them also and take them in their own craftiness;

13 Also because their hearts are corrupted, and the things which they are willing to bring upon others, and love to have others suffer, may come upon themselves to the very uttermost;
14 That they may be disappointed also, (like the Egyptians) and their hopes may be cut off;
15 And not many years hence, that they and their posterity shall be swept from under heaven, saith God, that not one of them is left to stand by the wall.

16 Cursed are all those that shall lift up the heel against mine anointed, saith the Lord, and cry they have sinned when they have not sinned before me, saith the Lord, but have done that which was meet in mine eyes, and which I commanded them.
17 But those who cry transgression do it because they are the servants of sin, and are the children of disobedience themselves.
18 And those who swear falsely against my servants, that they might bring them into bondage and death—“

“The glory of God is intelligence, or, in other words, light and truth.
37 Light and truth forsake that evil one.   (Quit your traditions!)
38 Every spirit of man was innocent in the beginning; and God having redeemed man from the fall, men became again, in their infant state, innocent before God.
39 And that wicked one cometh and taketh away light and truth, through disobedience, from the children of men, and because of the tradition of their fathers.
But I have commanded you to bring up your children in light and truth.”        Doctrine and Covenants 93: 36- 40  
  (And as I said, because of their ‘traditions’ many people have condemned their families to death. So now do you believe the truth? Or the movie story about the Exodus? Are you about to die?)  

“O then ye unbelieving, turn ye unto the Lord; cry mightily unto the Father in the name of Jesus, that perhaps ye may be found spotless, pure, fair, and white, having been cleansed by the blood of the Lamb, at that great and last day.
7 And again I speak unto you who deny the revelations of God, and say that they are done away, that there are no revelations, nor prophecies, nor gifts, nor healing, nor speaking with tongues, and the interpretation of tongues;   CLICK HERE to see a Special Group of people that are predicted to come before the Millennium.  

8 Behold I say unto you, he that denieth these things knoweth not the gospel of Christ; yea, he has not read the scriptures; if so, he does not understand them.
9 For do we not read that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and in him there is no variableness neither shadow of changing?

10 And now, if ye have imagined up unto yourselves a god who doth vary, and in whom there is shadow of changing, then have ye imagined up unto yourselves a god who is not a God of miracles
                                                                                         (Who can make

11 But behold, I will show unto you a God of miracles, even the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob; and it is that same God who created the heavens and the earth, and all things that in them are.” (Cold and hot.)    Mormon 9: 6- 11

                    So do you want the gifts from God?
“And in that day that they shall exercise faith in me, saith the Lord
, even as the brother of Jared did, that they may become sanctified in me, then will I manifest unto them the things which the brother of Jared saw, even to the unfolding unto them all my revelations, saith Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of the heavens and of the earth, and all things that in them are.
8 And he that will contend against the word of the Lord, let him be accursed; and he that shall deny these things, let him be accursed; for unto them will I show no greater things, saith Jesus Christ; for I am he who speaketh.
9 And at my command the heavens are opened and are shut; and at my word the earth shall shake; and at my command the inhabitants thereof shall pass away, even so as by fire.   CLICK HERE “IF” you want to Survive some of the fire.)

10 And he that believeth not my words believeth not my disciples; and if it so be that I do not speak, judge ye; for ye shall know that it is I that speaketh, at the last day.
11 But he that believeth these things which I have spoken, him will I visit with the manifestations of my Spirit, and he shall know and bear record.  For because of my Spirit he shall know that these things are true; for it persuadeth men to do good.
12 And whatsoever thing persuadeth men to do good is of me; for good cometh of none save it be of me.  I am the same that leadeth men to all good; he that will not believe my words will not believe me—that I am; and he that will not believe me will not believe the Father who sent me.  For behold, I am the Father, I am the light, and the life, and the truth of the world.
13 Come unto me, O ye Gentiles, and I will show unto you the greater things, the knowledge which is hid up because of unbelief.”      Ether 4: 7- 13   

So do you believe the words of God so that you can understand the greater things, OR are you bound to your traditions and so have to die soon.

 “Come unto me, O ye house of Israel, and it shall be made manifest unto you how great things the Father hath laid up for you, from the foundation of the world; and it hath not come unto you, because of unbelief.

15 Behold, when ye shall rend that veil of unbelief which doth cause you to remain in your awful state of wickedness, and hardness of heart, and blindness of mind, then shall the great and marvelous things which have been hid up from the foundation of the world from you—yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel.       Ether 4: 14- 15                   

“For you shall live by every word that proceedeth forth from the mouth of God.
45 For the word of the Lord is truth, and whatsoever is truth is light, and whatsoever is light is Spirit, even the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
46 And the Spirit giveth light to every man that cometh into the world; and the Spirit enlighteneth every man through the world, that hearkeneth to the voice of the Spirit.

47 And every one that hearkeneth to the voice of the Spirit cometh unto God, even the Father.
48 And the Father teacheth him of the covenant which he has renewed and confirmed upon you, which is confirmed upon you for your sakes, and not for your sakes only, but for the sake of the whole world.
49 And the whole world lieth in sin, and groaneth under darkness and under the bondage of sin.   
      (Do you think that almost 170 years is long enough to error?)

50 And by this you may know they are under the bondage of sin, because they come not unto me.”

“AND now when the king had heard these words, he said unto his priests: Away with this fellow, and slay him; for what have we to do with him, for he is mad.
(We all saw the movie and know what happened. That’s the story we believe.)
And they stood forth and attempted to lay their hands on him; but he withstood them, and said unto them:
3 Touch me not, for God shall smite you if ye lay your hands upon me, for I have not delivered the message which the Lord sent me to deliver; neither have I told you that which ye requested that I should tell; therefore, God will not suffer that I shall be destroyed at this time.
4 But I must fulfil the commandments wherewith God has commanded me; and because I have told you the truth ye are angry with me.  And again, because I have spoken the word of God ye have judged me that I am mad.”        Mosiah 13: 1- 4
(And if you don’t repent very soon; you will get to see hell coming at you.)

“And others will he pacify, and lull them away into carnal security, that they will say: All is well in Zion; (Utah) yea, Zion prospereth, all is well—and thus the devil cheateth their souls, and leadeth them away carefully down to hell.
22 And behold, others he flattereth away, and telleth them there is no hell; and he saith unto them: I am no devil, for there is none—and thus he whispereth in their ears, until he grasps them with his awful chains, from whence there is no deliverance.
23 Yea, they are grasped with death, and hell; and death, and hell, and the devil, and all that have been seized therewith must stand before the throne of God, and be judged according to their works, from whence they must go into the place prepared for them, even a lake of fire and brimstone, which is endless torment.

24 Therefore, wo be unto him that is at ease in Zion! (Utah.)
25 Wo be unto him that crieth: All is well!  
             CLICK HERE to see WHO SAID THAT!

26 Yea, wo be unto him that hearkeneth unto the precepts of men, and denieth the power of God, and the gift of the Holy Ghost!
27 Yea, wo be unto him that saith: We have received, and we need no more!
28 And in fine, wo unto all those who tremble, and are angry because of the truth of God!  For behold, he that is built upon the rock receiveth it with gladness; and he that is built upon a sandy foundation trembleth lest he shall fall.
29 Wo be unto him that shall say: We have received the word of God, and we need no more of the word of God, for we have enough!  (WE saw the movie.)

30 For behold, thus saith the Lord God: I will give unto the children of men line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little; and blessed are those who hearken unto my precepts, and lend an ear unto my counsel, for they shall learn wisdom; for unto him that receiveth I will give more; and from them that shall say, We have enough, from them shall be taken away even that which they have.”        2 Nephi 28: 21- 30

“And it came to pass that I said unto them that I knew that I had spoken hard things against the wicked, according to the truth; and the righteous have I justified, and testified that they should be lifted up at the last day; wherefore, the guilty taketh the truth to be hard, for it cutteth them to the very center.
3 And now my brethren, if ye were righteous and were willing to hearken to the truth, and give heed unto it, that ye might walk uprightly before God, then ye would not murmur because of the truth, and say: Thou speakest hard things against us.”     1 Nephi 16: 2- 3    (I condemn the apostate Mormons.)

“And it came to pass that after the more popular part of the Zoramites had consulted together concerning the words which had been preached unto them, they were angry because of the word, for it did destroy their craft; (their collections) therefore they would not hearken unto the words.  (WE believe the movie,)
4 And they sent and gathered together throughout all the land all the people, and consulted with them concerning the words which had been spoken.
5 Now their rulers and their priests and their teachers did not let the people know concerning their desires; therefore they found out privily the minds of all the people.
6 And it came to pass that after they had found out the minds of all the people, those who were in favor of the words which had been spoken by Alma and his brethren were cast out of the land; and they were many; and they came over also into the land of Jershon.”      Alma 35: 3- 6   

“Behold, I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  I am the same that came unto mine own, and mine own received me not.
  I am the light which shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehendeth it not.”        Doctrine and Covenants 6: 21

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, that Satan has great hold upon their hearts; he stirreth them up to iniquity against that which is good;  (The truth!)
21 And their hearts are corrupt, and full of wickedness and abominations; and they love darkness rather than light, because their deeds are evil; therefore they will not ask of me.    (Because they are more comfortable with their traditions.)
22 Satan stirreth them up, that he may lead their souls to destruction.”       Doctrine and Covenants 10: 20- 22

“And thus he goeth up and down, to and fro in the earth, seeking to destroy the souls of men.
28 Verily, verily, I say unto you, wo be unto him that lieth to deceive because he supposeth that another lieth to deceive, for such are not exempt from the justice of God.
29 Now, behold, they have altered these words, because Satan saith unto them: He hath deceived you—and thus he flattereth them away to do iniquity, to get thee to tempt the Lord thy God.”      Doctrine and Covenants 10: 27- 29

“But behold, verily I say unto you, that there are many who have been ordained among you, whom I have called but few of them are chosen.
6 They who are not chosen have sinned a very grievous sin, in that they are walking in darkness at noon–day.”     Doctrine and Covenants 95: 5- 6
(They have their eyes closed and are just following along, and they will all fall into the ditch together.)

The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.”     Deuteronomy 29: 29   (Keep all of the commands like Abraham did. So do you think that you are not going to die? Why haven't you bought your family grave plots yet? It's not because you are ignorant. It is because you are walking in darkness at noon-day. And will not believe!)

“LET a man so account of us, as
of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.”  1 Corinthians 4: 1          (What has been a 3500 year mystery?)

“I, NEPHI, having been born of goodly parents, therefore I was taught somewhat in all the learning of my father;
and having seen many afflictions in the course of my days, nevertheless, having been highly favored of the Lord in all my days; yea, having had a great knowledge of the goodness and the mysteries of God,
therefore I make a record
of my proceedings in my days.”   Nephi 1: 1

“I say unto you, my sons, were it not for these things, which have been kept and preserved by the hand of God, that we might read and understand of his mysteries, and have his commandments always before our eyes, that even our fathers would have dwindled in unbelief, and we should have been like unto our brethren, the Lamanites, who know nothing concerning these things, or even do not believe them when they are taught them, because of the traditions of their fathers, which are not correct.”    Mosiah 1: 5

“And he also taught them concerning the records which were engraven on the plates of brass, saying: My sons, I would that ye should remember that were it not for these plates, which contain these records and these commandments, we must have suffered in ignorance, even at this present time, not knowing the mysteries of God.       Mosiah 1: 3

Just ask 100 or 1000 people about the story of the Exodus, and unless they have seen this mystery revealed they will all believe the traditional story in the movieAnd most will be happy going to hell.
