"A Strange Act" We read in the Doctrine & Covenants: "Therefore, sanctify yourselves that your minds become single to GOD,
AND THE DAYS WILL COME that YOU
SHALL SEE HIM, for he WILL unveil his face unto you, and It
shall be in his own time, and in his own way, and according to his own
will. AND I give unto you a commandment THAT YOU SHALL TEACH ONE ANOTHER
THE DOCTRINE OF the Kingdom" Doctrine
and Covenants 88:68, 77
The time is soon that only a "tithing" of people in the United States will be left alive to start the millennium. 1/10 of today's population only leaves about 25 million. Are you one?
Read on, Doctrine & Covenants 101: (The Lord's Parable)
"And now I will show unto you A PARABLE that you may know my will CONCERNING THE REDEMPTION OF ZION.
"A certain nobleman (God) had a spot of land, (Jackson County, Missouri) VERY CHOICE; where EDEN was) and he said unto his servants: (Priesthood) Go ye Into my vineyard, (the world) even unto this VERY CHOICE (EDEN) piece of land, and PLANT TWELVE olive trees; (12 GATES TO the NEW JERAUSALEM TEMPLE) and set watchMEN (PRIESTHOOD MEN) round about them, and build a TOWER, (LAWS and ORDINANCES) that ONE (ONE, the prophet) may overlook the land round about, (USA) to be a watchMAN (1 man) UPON the tower that mine (God's) olives trees; (GATES FOR 12 tribes) may not be broken down (lost) WHEN ("when" - said in "1833") THE ENEMY (Government) SHALL ("shall" is future) COME to spoil (break down, ruin, wreck) THE FRUIT (children) of my vineyard. (World of corruption, dope, sex, etc. because Government will not uphold God's Laws.)
Now, (then, "1833") the servants (priesthood MEN) of the nobleman (God) went (in "1833") and did as their lord commanded them (they moved to Missouri) and planted (dedicated the New Jerusalem Temple site) the olive trees, and built a hedge (separated themselves from the world) round about, (they gathered together) and set watchMEN, and BEGAN (started) TO BUILD A TOWER. (LAWS and ordinances of the gospel).
"AND while they were YET LAYING THE FOUNDATION THEREOF. THEY BEGAN (in 1870-1880") to say among THEMselves: And what need hath my lord of this tower? (Why, THE LAW, of plural marriage, etc.) And consulted for a long time, (20 years, from "1870") saying among themselves: WHAT NEED hath my lord OF THIS TOWER, (see Moses 1:39) seeing this is a time of peace? Might not this MONEY (Reward for effort) he given to the EXCHANGERS (Bankers) For there is no need of these things. ( I will just have 2 or 3 children, and buy "stuff.")
"And while they were at variance one with another THEY BECAME VERY SLOTHFUL, (Procrastinated) AND THEY (the priesthood) hearkened not (3% lived plural marriage) UNTO THE COMMANDMENTS OF THEIR LORD.
"AND the enemy (Government) came by night. (LDS see D&C 95:5-6) AND broke down the hedge: (scattered the saints) and the servants (priesthood) of the nobleman (God) arose and WERE AFFRIGHTED, and fled; (THE TRUTH) and the enemy destroyed their works, and broke down the olive trees. (That bear fruit)
"Now, behold, the nobleman, (God) the lord of the vineyard, (the world) called upon his servants, and said unto them, WHY! What is the cause of this great evil?
"OUGHT YE NOT TO HAVE DONE EVEN AS I COMMANDED YOU, and after ye
had planted the vineyard, and built the hedge round about, and set watchmen upon
the walls there of- built the tower also, AND SET A WATCHMAN (the prophet) upon the
tower, (to see that nothing changed) and watched for my vineyard, and not have fallen
asleep. (as the virgins did, in Matthew 25) lest the enemy should
come upon you? "And behold, THE WATCHMAN upon the tower
would have seen the enemy while he was yet afar off; and then ye could have made ready and
kept the enemy from breaking down the hedge thereof, (that separated us) and
vineyard from the hands of the DESTROYER.
(THE DEVIL, Satan, OR spelled with those 5 letters, S-A-N-T-A
"AND THE LORD of the vineyard SAID UNTO ONE (ONE; JOSEPH SMITH) of his servants:
GO and gather together THE RESIDUE (what is left) of my servants, and take ALL the strength of mine house, WHICH ARE MY WARRIORS, (bravemen,) MY YOUNG MEN, and THEY that are OF MIDDLE AGE ALSO among all my servants, who are the strength of mine house, save those only whom I have appointed to tarry;
"AND THE SERVANT (Joseph Smith) SAID unto his lord: WHEN shall these things he? AND HE (GOD) SAID unto his servant: (Joseph Smith) WIIEN I WILL; go ye straightway AND DO ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER I HAVE COMMANDED YOU: And this shall be my seal and blessing upon you, A faithful and wise steward in the midst of mine house, A RULER IN MY KINGDOM.
"AND HIS SERVANT (Joseph) WENT straightway, AND DID All THINGS whatsoever his lord commanded him; AND AFTER MANY DAYS ALL THINGS WERE FULFILLED.
"Again, verily (in truth) I say unto you, I WILL SHOW UNTO YOU WISDOM in me concerning ALL the churches, INASMUCH AS THEY ARE WILLING TO BE GUIDED in A RIGHT and PROPER WAY for their salvation THAT the work of the GATHERING together OF MY SAINTS MAY CONTINUE, that I may build them up unto my name upon holy places; FOR THE TIME OF HARVEST IS COME, and my word must needs be fulfilled.
"Therefore I MUST GATHER MY PEOPLE, according to the parable of the WHEAT and the tares that the wheat may be secured in the garners to possess eternal life, and be crowned with celestial glory, when I shall come in the kingdom of my Father to reward every man according AS HIS work shall be; WHILE THE TARES shall be bound in bundles, and their bands made strong, THAT THEY MAY BE BURNED WITH UNQUENCHABLE FIRE." ("NUCLEAR FIRE" IS UNQUENCHABLE!) (Doctrine and Covenants 101: 43-66)
Section 103:21 tells us: "Verily, verily I say unto you. THAT MY SERVANT Baurak Ale, Joseph Smith Jun. Is the man to whom I likened the servant to whom the Lord of the vineyard spake IN THE PARABLE which I have given unto you. (See D&C 101:55; 103:21-22; 105:2-6, 10-13, 15-17, 33-41; about the young and middle aged).
Section 101: tells us: Because the servants DID NOT DO AS TOLD the time
is "SOON" "…then will the Lord arise and come forth out of his hiding
place, and in his fury vex the nation; (USA) And IN
HIS HIS HOT DISPLEASURE, and IN HIS FIERCE ANGER, in his time, WILL CUT OFF (from mortality) those wicked,
unfaithful, and UNJUST STEWARDS, and appoint them their portion among HYPOCRITES, AND UNBELIEVERS;
(those watchmen) THAT I MAY
PROCEED TO BRING TO PASS MY ACT. MY STRANGE ACT, and perform my work, my strange work,
THAT MEN MAY DISCERN BETWEEN THE RIGHTEOUS AND THE WICKED. SAITH YOUR GOD."
The LORD TELLS US: "LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD, even Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, whose course is one eternal round. THE SAME TODAY AS YESTERDAY. AND FOREVER. AND there are none that doeth good except those who ARE READY TO RECEIVE THE FULLNESS of my gospel, which I have sent forth unto this generation. Wherefore, I call upon the weak things of the world, those who are unlearned AND DESPISED, TO thrash the nations by the power of my spirit: (D & C 35:1, 12, 13)
THRASH THE NATIONS HE SAID, BEGINNING HERE:
"Nevertheless, ZION shall escape IF (IF!) SHE OBSERVE TO DO ALL THINGS whatsoever I have commanded her. BUT IF SHE OBSERVE NOT TO DO whatsoever I have commanded her, I will visit her according to all her works, WITH SORE AFFLICTION, with PESTILENCE, with PLAGUE, with SWORD, with VENGEANCE. WITH DEVOURING FIRE." (H BOMBS FIRE." (Doctrine and Covenants 97: 25, 26)
The Prophet Isaiah says about Salt Lake: "How IS THE FAITHFUL CITY become an harlot! It WAS FULL OF JUDGMENT; righteousness lodged in it; (Prophets lived there) but now murders. Thy silver is become dross, Thy Wine ("WINE" means "revelation," see Teachings of Prophet Joseph Smith, page 192) MIXED WITH WATER: Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves; EVERYONE LOVETH GIFTS, AND FOLLOWETH AFTER REWARDS: (MORE, money, more, more) they judge not the fatherless, NEITHER DOTH THE CAUSE OF THE WIDOW COME UNTO THEM." Isaiah 1:21-23)
Again he says: "...they have transgressed THE LAWS, CHANGED THE ordinance, (Endowment) BROKEN THE EVERLASTING COVENANT. Therefore (THEREFORE!) hath the curse devoured the earth, AND they that dwell therein ARE Desolate: THEREFORE (THEREFORE) THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH ARE BURNED, AND FEW MEN LEFT." (Isaiah 24:5-6)
The LDS would not live plural marriage on a volunteer basis, SO the Lord is going to kill off the men, brothers, sons, so a husband is honored. NOT like the things are today. Where men are scorned as the dummies in the family.
And again: "Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, CRUEL BOTH WITH WRATH AND FIERCE ANGER, TO LAY THE LAND DESOLATE…I WILL MAKE A MAN MORE PRECIOUS THAN FINE GOLD..." (Isaiah 13:9,12)
Again: WOE to the crown of pride, to the drunkerds of Ephraim, . . WHICH ARE ON THE HEAD. . .(leadership) of the fat valleys (of Utah) of them that are OVERCOME WITH WINE! ("Revelation" see "TPJS" 192) BUT THEY HAVE ERRED THROUGH WINE. For ALL tables are full of vomit." (Undigested food, OR unlived commandments) Isaiah 28:1,8)
"OK" - ''OK'' if all tables are full of vomit, what am I to do?
THE LORD: "WHEREFORE, I WILL THAT ALL MEN SHALL REPENT, for
all are under sin, except those which I have reserved unto myself, HOLY MEN THAT YE KNOW
"For AFTER TODAY cometh the burning -this is speaking after the manner of the Lord - for verily I say, tomorrow all the proud and they that do wickedly shall be as stubble; AND I WILL BURN THEM UP, for I am the Lord of Hosts: AND I WILL NOT SPARE ANY THAT REMAIN IN BABYLON. Wherefore, if (IF) ye believe me, ye will labor while it is called today'' (D & C 64:24-25)
"For thus saith the Lord unto the house of Israel, (you?) SEEK YE ME, AND YE SHALL LIVE" (Amos 5:4)
"Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret
unto HIS SERVANTS THE
PROPHETS." (Amos 3:7)
