Be still, and know that I am God

Zion, January 29, 2012

"Be still, and know that I am God"

(Old Testament | Psalms 46:10)

I remembered that day in January 2008, I got out from Winter Heaven Hospital from an involuntary stay of five or six days at the psychiatric unit for saying that I hear the voice of GOD and preaching hard core repentance to my brethren and the scandal or controversy that aroused from it.  It was a day like today. Only that that day was a Wednesday and not a Sabbath Day.

Six days later, during those days, the fire of the Lord’s indignation inside me was full and that the cup of his wrath was overflowing because if the blood and sins of this generation. I could feel the hot fiery reprehension of the LORD inside me. And people perceived me as a bull by a net. And only after I had sealed the law and the testimony with my own blood, I sensed or perceived that something very bad was going to take place nearby or in the region but I did not know what it was it. For thus has the Lord said unto me:

And it shall come to pass, because of the wickedness of the world, that I will take vengeance upon the wicked, for they will not repent; for the cup of mine indignation is full; for behold, my blood shall not cleanse them if they hear me not.

(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 29:17)

But for me at the hospital, that was a day darkness and gloominess, a day of cloud and thick darkness, a day of wasteness and desolation. I told the people at the hospital that if they did not release me, they would see a manifestation of the power of God. They ignored my words or did not listen to me, until after the following morning when by law they could no longer hold me against my will.  By then, when they chose to release me, the fire was already kindled. It was in the wake of the morrow around January, 9th 2008. As it was today, there was a controlled brush fire near by and in that morning a cloud of smoke came in a wind mixed with a cloud of fog creating a wall of invisibility where seventy vehicles suddenly crashed and four people died; some of the casualties, I believe were some of my countrymen...

The next time I was taken against my will, this time directly from church to a psychiatric facility in Orlando for preaching repentance to a great many people and particularly to my brethren, it was on June 26th 2011. I remember it well because it was on the eve of the day Joseph Smith the prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was martyred by a mob in 1844. That day, I had a concluding confrontational meeting with some of my incredulous superiors who up to this say do not believe that I walk with God. On that meeting, it was four against two, but the LORD was on my side, yet no flesh saw him.  For of this, it is also written that there are those that are born of the flesh and those that are born of the spirit. And I being full of the Holy Ghost had previously told my brethren that the LORD will be present also at that special meeting. So, in faith, not knowing exactly what would take place, for those of us that are born of the spirit know not where we go when guided by it. So, I prepared being prompted by the voice of the Holy Ghost as if I went to my own death. I went dressed very neatly as if I were going to the wedding of the Lord’s Supper, yet as dumb as a lamb going to the slaughterhouse not knowing beforehand what all that will happen to me. So, despite the ridicule that I would face before my brethren, I wore that day a tuxedo and within I was girded by a bright red vest as a symbol, sign or wonder to stand as a witness of Jesus Christ next appearance to his own and in fulfillments of the scriptures that say:

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.”

(New Testament | John 3:6 - 8)

Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.”

(Old Testament | Isaiah 8:18)

But they were blinded and perceived not the sign or the wonder. That day or evening, I was taken against my free will and choice at the hospital where I was heavily sedated, but only after I had sealed the law and the testimony with my own blood before the eyes of the High Priest.  When I woke up, it was night already. And I was to be taken to a crisis unit for further observation against my will. This involuntary stay at the hospital was for four days. And during that first night or the night after that, another great fire also took place nearby. And I learned of it by watching TV that a Hotel had burned completely all night in the 192 road at Kissimmee, near the theme parks. I figured it was as a result of iniquity and perversion of the foulest kind going on in those places. The place was burned as a result of immorality, promiscuity and debauchery of some of its long term tenants.

And last but not least, yesterday and the day before, the spirit of the LORD told me to keep silence and to be still and know that he is GOD. I had preached repentance for many days but to no avail for nobody would listen to my cries. And in my anxiety for the welfare of the souls of men, I also run out of things to say. The door was shut to me on the newsvine and in another place they erased my words or the words that God gave me. So, I was told by the spirit of God to stop for a while. I then went to help my wife and some friends at a place where they worked in Kissimmee, whereby on the way, certain people had a show or sale of antique cars. It gave me the creeps to pass by that place for unknown reasons. I must have had close contact with somebody of that place for the dreams I had thereafter were terrible as the ones I had at the psychiatric hospital a few years earlier, the first time I was taken.

But, Yesterday or the day before yesterday, I had sent a letter to a distant friend in response to an article he wrote; and how I agreed with him in certain issues he talked about with regards rebellious people in the south choosing iniquity.  I sensed or perceived the same danger as I did three or four years ago. It was some form of deep sorrow or anguish of soul, but I could not tell what it was because I could not hold my peace and be still enough to listen to the still small voice of the spirit. Yet, I told Mr. Baldwin, among many other things that bad things will come to take place in the dirty south as a result of people choosing iniquity here in the south east.  And I ended my word to him with the scriptures which says:

Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey?  will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing? Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is for him?  shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all? Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid?  shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not known it? Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. The lion hath roared, who will not fear?  the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?

(Old Testament | Amos 3:3 - 8)

The point of the matter is not that I have the gift or ability to sense what will shortly come to pass as a prophet of doom. What else can I say that has not been said before or that it written, yet I know that not all the judgments of God are give to men. For he said in the spirit unto me:

But, behold, verily I say unto you, before the earth shall pass away, Michael, mine archangel, shall sound his trump, and then shall all the dead awake, for their graves shall be opened, and they shall come forth—yea, even all. And the righteous shall be gathered on my right hand unto eternal life; and the wicked on my left hand will I be ashamed to own before the Father; Wherefore I will say unto them—Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.  And now, behold, I say unto you, never at any time have I declared from mine own mouth that they should return, for where I am they cannot come, for they have no power.

But remember that all my judgments are not given unto men; and as the words have gone forth out of my mouth even so shall they be fulfilled, that the first shall be last, and that the last shall be first in all things whatsoever I have created by the word of my power, which is the power of my Spirit.

(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 29:26 - 30)

What I believe is that the LORD has been in our midst from time to time. And some of us can sense his presence. For where two or more are agree upon one thing or another, he is also in our mist. Of this it is also written:

Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

(New Testament | Matthew 18:18 - 20)

Verily, verily, I say unto you, as I said unto my disciples, where two or three are gathered together in my name, as touching one thing, behold, there will I be in the midst of them—even so am I in the midst of you.

(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 6:32)

And today it all came to my mind as I read the news of this fiery car crashing incident that took place today, that the LORD has already sent lose his destroying angels to reap the earth and bound the wicked in bounds to be burned up in the fire of his anguish. For, believe it or not, he comes like a thief in the night, in and out in of heaven a chariot of fire. He even said this:

but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

(Old Testament | Zephaniah 1:18)

He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.  Selah.

(Old Testament | Psalms 46:9 - 11)

Therefore, let your hearts be comforted concerning Zion; for all flesh is in mine hands; be still and know that I am God.

(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 101:16)

These things I write as a voice of warning unto all that may hear. That this is a day of repentance where no one except the little children are innocent before God. This is a day when the knowledge of a savior of the world is known all over the world even to the end of the earth. This is the day when the children of men should prepare in every which way to meet their maker or face death and misery in this life and in the life to come. 

We are here, as witnesses of Jesus Christ in all things, in all places and at all times even unto death. And we are sent to bring good tidings of great joy unto the world. That Jesus Christ lives and that he reigns on earth as he does in heave.  And we are here also to lift up the standard of his restored and everlasting gospel unto the world. We are here to bear witness of the restoration of all things and that the kingdom of heaven is come. That salvation is within our reach in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. 

Therefore, this is the voice as of one sent down from high, who is mighty and powerful and whose going are unto the ends of the earth; and whose voice is unto all men saying: repent ye repent ye, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Repent ye repent ye, for the ax is laid at the root of every three, and every tree that does not bring good fruit worth meet for repentance, will be hewn down and cast into the fire from where no traveler ever returns. For If I who am a man to lift up my voice and call you to repentance and you hate me, what will you say then you hear the sermons of heaven? For these are the words of your God who has spoken unto you saying:

“For if I, who am a man, do lift up my voice and call upon you to repent, and ye hate me, what will ye say when the day cometh when the thunders shall utter their voices from the ends of the earth, speaking to the ears of all that live, saying—Repent, and prepare for the great day of the Lord? Yea, and again, when the lightnings shall streak forth from the east unto the west, and shall utter forth their voices unto all that live, and make the ears of all tingle that hear, saying these words—Repent ye, for the great day of the Lord is come? And again, the Lord shall utter his voice out of heaven, saying: Hearken, O ye nations of the earth, and hear the words of that God who made you.

O, ye nations of the earth, how often would I have gathered you together as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, but ye would not! How oft have I called upon you by the mouth of my servants, and by the ministering of angels, and by mine own voice, and by the voice of thunderings, and by the voice of lightnings, and by the voice of tempests, and by the voice of earthquakes, and great hailstorms, and by the voice of famines and pestilences of every kind, and by the great sound of a trump, and by the voice of judgment, and by the voice of mercy all the day long, and by the voice of glory and honor and the riches of eternal life, and would have saved you with an everlasting salvation, but ye would not! Behold, the day has come, when the cup of the wrath of mine indignation is full. Behold, verily I say unto you, that these are the words of the Lord your God.”

(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 43:21 - 27)

And again I say unto you:

“Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey?  will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing? Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is for him?  shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all? Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid?  shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not known it? Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. The lion hath roared, who will not fear?  the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?”

(Old Testament | Amos 3:3 - 8)

As you see, I walk with the LORD and his will I declare, for I do not speak of myself, but as the LORD has spoken he shall also fulfill. And I say these things in his holy name, even Jesus Christ Amen.

Attentively an unworthy servant in the hands of Christ

    And now behold, my beloved brethren, I say unto you, do not suppose that this is all; for after ye have done all these things, if ye turn away the needy, and the naked, and visit not the sick and afflicted, and impart of your substance, if ye have, to those who stand in need—I say unto you, if ye do not any of these things, behold, your prayer is vain, and availeth you nothing, and ye are as hypocrites who do deny the faith.

    Therefore, if ye do not remember to be charitable, ye are as dross, which the refiners do cast out, (it being of no worth) and is trodden under foot of men. And now, my brethren, I would that, after ye have received so many witnesses, seeing that the holy scriptures testify of these things, ye come forth and bring fruit unto repentance. 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; and therefore, if ye will repent and harden not your hearts, immediately shall the great plan of redemption be brought about unto you.

    For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors. 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; 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. 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. For behold, if ye have procrastinated the day of your repentance even until death, 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.

    And this I know, because the Lord hath said he dwelleth not in unholy temples, but in the hearts of the righteous doth he dwell; yea, and he has also said that the righteous shall sit down in his kingdom, to go no more out; but their garments should be made white through the blood of the Lamb. And now, my beloved brethren, I desire that ye should remember these things, and that ye should work out your salvation with fear before God, and that ye should no more deny the coming of Christ;

    That ye contend no more against the Holy Ghost, but that ye receive it, and take upon you the name of Christ; that ye humble yourselves even to the dust, and worship God, in whatsoever place ye may be in, in spirit and in truth; and that ye live in thanksgiving daily, for the many mercies and blessings which he doth bestow upon you. Yea, and I also exhort you, my brethren, that ye be watchful unto prayer continually, that ye may not be led away by the temptations of the devil, that he may not overpower you, that ye may not become his subjects at the last day; for behold, he rewardeth you no good thing.

    And now my beloved brethren, I would exhort you to have patience, and that ye bear with all manner of afflictions; that ye do not revile against those who do cast you out because of your exceeding poverty, lest ye become sinners like unto them; But that ye have patience, and bear with those afflictions, with a firm hope that ye shall one day rest from all your afflictions.

    (Book of Mormon | Alma 34:28 - 41)

  3. For since the beginning of the world have not men heard nor perceived by the ear, neither hath any eye seen, O God, besides thee, how great things thou hast prepared for him that waiteth for thee. And it shall be said: Who is this that cometh down from God in heaven with dyed garments; yea, from the regions which are not known, clothed in his glorious apparel, traveling in the greatness of his strength? And he shall say: I am he who spake in righteousness, mighty to save. And the Lord shall be red in his apparel, and his garments like him that treadeth in the wine–vat. And so great shall be the glory of his presence that the sun shall hide his face in shame, and the moon shall withhold its light, and the stars shall be hurled from their places. And his voice shall be heard: I have trodden the wine–press alone, and have brought judgment upon all people; and none were with me; And I have trampled them in my fury, and I did tread upon them in mine anger, and their blood have I sprinkled upon my garments, and stained all my raiment; for this was the day of vengeance which was in my heart.

    And now the year of my redeemed is come; and they shall mention the loving kindness of their Lord, and all that he has bestowed upon them according to his goodness, and according to his loving kindness, forever and ever. In all their afflictions he was afflicted. And the angel of his presence saved them; and in his love, and in his pity, he redeemed them, and bore them, and carried them all the days of old; Yea, and Enoch also, and they who were with him; the prophets who were before him; and Noah also, and they who were before him; and Moses also, and they who were before him; And from Moses to Elijah, and from Elijah to John, who were with Christ in his resurrection, and the holy apostles, with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, shall be in the presence of the Lamb. And the graves of the saints shall be opened; and they shall come forth and stand on the right hand of the Lamb, when he shall stand upon Mount Zion, and upon the holy city, the New Jerusalem; and they shall sing the song of the Lamb, day and night forever and ever.

  4. And for this cause, that men might be made partakers of the glories which were to be revealed, the Lord sent forth the fulness of his gospel, his everlasting covenant, reasoning in plainness and simplicity— To prepare the weak for those things which are coming on the earth, and for the Lord's errand in the day when the weak shall confound the wise, and the little one become a strong nation, and two shall put their tens of thousands to flight. and by the weak things of the earth the Lord shall thrash the nations by the power of his Spirit. And for this cause these commandments were given; they were commanded to be kept from the world in the day that they were given, but now are to go forth unto all flesh— And this according to the mind and will of the Lord, who ruleth over all flesh.

    And unto him that repenteth and sanctifieth himself before the Lord shall be given eternal life. And upon them that hearken not to the voice of the Lord shall be fulfilled that which was written by the prophet Moses, that they should be cut off from among the people. And also that which was written by the prophet Malachi: For, behold, the day cometh that shall burn as an oven, and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble; and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

    Wherefore, this shall be the answer of the Lord unto them: In that day when I came unto mine own, no man among you received me, and you were driven out. When I called again there was none of you to answer; yet my arm was not shortened at all that I could not redeem, neither my power to deliver.

    Behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea. I make the rivers a wilderness; their fish stink, and die for thirst. I clothe the heavens with blackness, and make sackcloth their covering. And this shall ye have of my hand—ye shall lie down in sorrow. Behold, and lo, there are none to deliver you; for ye obeyed not my voice when I called to you out of the heavens; ye believed not my servants, and when they were sent unto you ye received them not. Wherefore, they sealed up the testimony and bound up the law, and ye were delivered over unto darkness. These shall go away into outer darkness, where there is weeping, and wailing, and gnashing of teeth. Behold the Lord your God hath spoken it. Amen.
