Mormon group shows its support in Salt Lake City gay parade


ALL OF YOU. Give heed to my words and hearken to my speech. Be not deceived. This report linked above is either shamelessly flawed or lying; or those so called Mormons or that group who is standing in the place which is not supposed to be; or those who may have marched along gays in Salt Lake City in violation of the Sabbath Day, were not true to the faith Mormons. 



THIS ACTIVISM or BEHAVIOUR IS TOTALLY INCOMPATIBLE with our faith and our core beliefs and eternal expectations even as iron does not mix with clay. God’s commandments are the constitution of life and eternity and therefore, they are not amendable or negotiable regardless of the democratic or undemocratic expectations of the righteous and/or the wicked.

Whatever the case is, the very same thing was said BY those billions of unrepentant sinners who were destroyed during the GREAT FLOOD in the times of the righteous Patriarch Noah. Yes, they were of the delusional and wishful thinking and/or belief; and even said that they were all sons or children of God when in effect they were not, for they refused to hearken unto the requirements of the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ; and be made or be born of GOD. OF this it is written:

And it came to pass that Noah called upon the children of men that they should repent; but they hearkened not unto his words; And also, after that they had heard him, they came up before him, saying:

“Behold, we are the sons of God; have we not taken unto ourselves the daughters of men?  And are we not eating and drinking, and marrying and giving in marriage?  And our wives bear unto us children, and the same are mighty men, which are like unto men of old, men of great renown.” 

And they hearkened not unto the words of Noah. And God saw that the wickedness of men had become great in the earth; and every man was lifted up in the imagination of the thoughts of his heart, being only evil continually.

(Pearl of Great Price | Moses 8:20 - 22)

And it came to pass that Noah continued his preaching unto the people, saying: Hearken, and give heed unto my words; Believe and repent of your sins and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, even as our fathers, and ye shall receive the Holy Ghost, that ye may have all things made manifest; and if ye do not this, the floods will come in upon you; nevertheless they hearkened not. And it repented Noah, and his heart was pained that the Lord had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at the heart.

And the Lord said: I will destroy man whom I have created, from the face of the earth, both man and beast, and the creeping things, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth Noah that I have created them, and that I have made them; and he hath called upon me; for they have sought his life.

And thus Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord; for Noah was a just man, and perfect in his generation; and he walked with God, as did also his three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 

The earth was corrupt before God, and it was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah: The end of all flesh is come before me, for the earth is filled with violence, and behold I will destroy all flesh from off the earth.”

(Pearl of Great Price | Moses 8:23 - 30)

Apparently so, only eight souls and a great many chosen animals were found more worthy to live on this earth than the carnal, sensual and devilish inhabitants of the earth including the unrepentant daughters of Noah.

Therefore unless these so called gays and specially those so called Mormons or LDS speedily repent and amend their ways, especially those so called Mormon or LDS, even the supporters of Gay Pride, they have dis-fellowshipped themselves; and eventually they will be cut off or be numbered no more amongst us. And at last they will be given unto the buffetings of Satan and be destroyed in the flesh. Because, except Jesus Christ, the only begotten in the flesh of the Father, unless we are of his household, we are not born sons and daughters of God. We are only given power to become as such, but only through faith in Jesus Christ, by Repentance, by baptism for immersion for the remission of sins and by the reception of the Holy Ghost by the lying of hands under those with proper and legal authority before God, angels and witnesses.

And then, and only then, if we continue faithfulness in keeping all the commandments of God  in all things, we can righteously claim the title to be called Children of God.  Only the hard, only the strong who prevail in all things until the end can be called sons or daughters of GOD because many are called but few are chosen.  And those so called Mormons who were found marching among the wicked are not of the chosen kind. Dissenters and apostates they are, they went from us but are not of us. And unless they repent they will likewise perish either by Flooding, by the whirlwind, by devouring fire and/or by earth and rocks heaping upon them; and also by plagues, pestilence and famines. And this I prophesy without sparing any unrepentant soul on this very day with proper authority with intend to seal up the law and bind up the testimony among the wicked and the rebellious and this I do in the Sacred name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Wherefore to all of you who are still faithful, gird up your loins lest you are found among the wicked and receive a measure of their plagues. For of this it is also written:

Wherefore gird up your loins lest ye be found among the wicked.

Lift up your voices and spare not.  Call upon the nations to repent, both old and young, both bond and free, saying: Prepare yourselves for the great day of the Lord;

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 43:19 - 27)

Now, I have written many things and I have been rejected of a great many people including some or many of my own family and church. Some think that I write none sense and others make mockery of the things I write. Coherent or incoherent as these my words may sound, they are binding in this life and in the life to come upon the souls to whom my words are addressed.  I do not speak of myself, nor do I write of my own self. I have been commanded to do so by God thru a living prophet for a purpose which wisdom remains with GOD the FATHER. And he has endowed me not only with authority but with power from on high to do these things. And no one can withhold me nor can I be restrained for God has commanded me. For it is written:

HEARKEN, O ye people of my church, saith the voice of him who dwells on high, and whose eyes are upon all men; yea, verily I say: Hearken ye people from afar; and ye that are upon the islands of the sea, listen together. 

For verily the voice of the Lord is unto all men, and there is none to escape; and there is no eye that shall not see, neither ear that shall not hear, neither heart that shall not be penetrated. And the rebellious shall be pierced with much sorrow; for their iniquities shall be spoken upon the housetops, and their secret acts shall be revealed.

And the voice of warning shall be unto all people, by the mouths of my disciples, whom I have chosen in these last days. And they shall go forth and none shall stay them, for I the Lord have commanded them.

Behold, this is mine authority, and the authority of my servants, and my preface unto the book of my commandments, which I have given them to publish unto you, O inhabitants of the earth. Wherefore, fear and tremble, O ye people, for what I the Lord have decreed in them shall be fulfilled.

And verily I say unto you, that they who go forth, bearing these tidings unto the inhabitants of the earth, to them is power given to seal both on earth and in heaven, the unbelieving and rebellious; Yea, verily, to seal them up unto the day when the wrath of God shall be poured out upon the wicked without measure— Unto the day when the Lord shall come to recompense unto every man according to his work, and measure to every man according to the measure which he has measured to his fellow man.

Wherefore the voice of the Lord is unto the ends of the earth, that all that will hear may hear: 

Prepare ye, prepare ye for that which is to come, for the Lord is nigh; And the anger of the Lord is kindled, and his sword is bathed in heaven, and it shall fall upon the inhabitants of the earth. And the arm of the Lord shall be revealed; and the day cometh that they who will not hear the voice of the Lord, neither the voice of his servants, neither give heed to the words of the prophets and apostles, shall be cut off from among the people; For they have strayed from mine ordinances, and have broken mine everlasting covenant; They seek not the Lord to establish his righteousness, but every man walketh in his own way, and after the image of his own god, whose image is in the likeness of the world, and whose substance is that of an idol, which waxeth old and shall perish in Babylon, even Babylon the great, which shall fall.

(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 1:1 - 16)

Believe it or not, as a duly authorized agent and facilitator of the Kingdom of Haven on earth, not of the Kingdom of GOD on earth, I have served you a warning, a forewarning and an ultimatum of the will of God and the true order of heaven. And this I do with proper authority in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, amen.

Who has ears to hear, let him hear.

Attentively yours, written and prepared by an unworthy Servant in the hands of Christ who is but a householder who was, who is and who will yet be a SCRIBE UNTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN and who holds in his right hand the sure sign of the nail and the Seal of the Living God.

And with this authority, as an Angel ascending from the East, I say and make manifest before God, Angels and these witnesses to the four destroying Angels who are in the four corners of the earth and who hold the four winds, the code words as recorded in the book of revelation.

PHAREZ-ZERAH

Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

THIS IS A SOLEMN WARNING AND A PROCLAMATION OF WHAT WILL SHORLTY COME TO PASS

ADRESSED TO ALL THOSE THAT DWELL ON THE EARTH

Habitation of Devils and Hold of Unlcean Spirits

Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

Bath salts: The quasi-legal drug allegedly behind Miami's cannibal attack



People, this is much worst than what it seems in the above linked news reports. Please give heed to my words and hearken to my speech.

THAT OLD SERPENT

Warning : Meth Imported From China As Bath Salts: Large Bath Salts Operation Busted In Warren




The whole world should fear and tremble because of these abominations of desolation which we are now experiencing and which are spreading like wild fire all over the world. It is not my intention to torment your souls before time, but I must be obedient to the commandments of God and to the promptings of the Holy Ghost which IS OVER ME and gives me utterance to write. Know that only to understand the report of these vicissitudes is a vexation to the soul as the prophet Isaiah once said it. And it is because Babylon the great is fallen is fallen and it has become the habitation of devils, hold of every unclean spirit and the cage of every hateful bird. I will now explain to you what this language means.


Therefore, I will now tell you and show you by borrowed power what will shortly come to pass. Be therefore prepared to absorb even the dark and shadowy events of MAX PAYNE’S WORLD. Mark my words, for I will tell you, not of myself, but by the fire of the spirit of God which is at this very moment is upon my shoulders what you have not yet considered; or what has not yet entered in your thoughts, for these are things that eye has not seen and things that ear has not heard nor entered in the hearts and the understanding of the children of men.  

BATH SALTS ARE BAD SALTS




Pretty much “all your drugs”, prescribed or obnoxiously illegal, especially those of the psychotropic kind are forms of mild or strong delusional SORCERIES. These things are audaciously “designed and intended” to torment mankind, especially those that indulge in these things.  And the proof is in the awful side effects as we see now being portrayed in the daily news. No one of these manufactured or adulterated substances and obnoxious weeds does what it is intended to do or what you expect.


SORCERIES
Behold, verily, thus saith the Lord unto you: In consequence of evils and designs which do and will exist in the hearts of conspiring men in the last days, I have warned you, and forewarn you, by giving unto you this word of wisdom by revelation— That inasmuch as any man drinketh wine or strong drink among you, behold it is not good, neither meet in the sight of your Father, only in assembling yourselves together to offer up your sacraments before him.

And, behold, this should be wine, yea, pure wine of the grape of the vine, of your own make. And, again, strong drinks are not for the belly, but for the washing of your bodies. And again, tobacco is not for the body, neither for the belly, and is not good for man, but is an herb for bruises and all sick cattle, to be used with judgment and skill. And again, hot drinks are not for the body or belly.

(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 89:4 - 9)

They may temporarily give you a bliss or false sense of health, power, knowledge wisdom or security but NOT without harming other things of your body and soul.  And this is very alarming, what these things do to the soul and I will tell you why. Because they will lead you to suffer the pains of the living hell until the time of redemption if there is left any.

And it came to pass that there were sorceries, and witchcrafts, and magics; and the power of the evil one was wrought upon all the face of the land, even unto the fulfilling of all the words of Abinadi, and also Samuel the Lamanite.

(Book of Mormon | Mormon 1:19)

First of all, God will not always allow the wicked to have pleasure or satisfaction in wickedness or sin because wickedness was never happiness. This is why drugs are but a bliss that came and was gone with the wind. It is an unnatural crave that destroy lives and whole nations and civilizations.

Behold, I say unto you, wickedness never was happiness.

(Book of Mormon | Alma 41:10)

And it came to pass that when I, Mormon, saw their lamentation and their mourning and their sorrow before the Lord, my heart did begin to rejoice within me, knowing the mercies and the long-suffering of the Lord, therefore supposing that he would be merciful unto them that they would again become a righteous people. But behold this my joy was vain, for their sorrowing was not unto repentance, because of the goodness of God; but it was rather the sorrowing of the damned, because the Lord would not always suffer them to take happiness in sin.

(Book of Mormon | Mormon 2:12 - 13)


And now behold, I, Mormon, do not desire to harrow up the souls of men in casting before them such an awful scene of blood and carnage as was laid before mine eyes; but I, knowing that these things must surely be made known, and that all things which are hid must be revealed upon the house–tops— And also that a knowledge of these things must come unto the remnant of these people, and also unto the Gentiles, who the Lord hath said should scatter this people, and this people should be counted as naught among them—therefore I write a small abridgment, daring not to give a full account of the things which I have seen, because of the commandment which I have received, and also that ye might not have too great sorrow because of the wickedness of this people.

And now behold, this I speak unto their seed, and also to the Gentiles who have care for the house of Israel, that realize and know from whence their blessings come. For I know that such will sorrow for the calamity of the house of Israel; yea, they will sorrow for the destruction of this people; they will sorrow that this people had not repented that they might have been clasped in the arms of Jesus.

Now these things are written unto the remnant of the house of Jacob; and they are written after this manner, because it is known of God that wickedness will not bring them forth unto them; and they are to be hid up unto the Lord that they may come forth in his own due time. And this is the commandment which I have received; and behold, they shall come forth according to the commandment of the Lord, when he shall see fit, in his wisdom.

And behold, they shall go unto the unbelieving of the Jews; and for this intent shall they go—that they may be persuaded that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God; that the Father may bring about, through his most Beloved, his great and eternal purpose, in restoring the Jews, or all the house of Israel, to the land of their inheritance, which the Lord their God hath given them, unto the fulfilling of his covenant;

And also that the seed of this people may more fully believe his gospel, which shall go forth unto them from the Gentiles; for this people shall be scattered, and shall become a dark, a filthy, and a loathsome people, beyond the description of that which ever hath been amongst us, yea, even that which hath been among the Lamanites, and this because of their unbelief and idolatry.

For behold, the Spirit of the Lord hath already ceased to strive with their fathers; and they are without Christ and God in the world; and they are driven about as chaff before the wind.

They were once a delightsome people, and they had Christ for their shepherd; yea, they were led even by God the Father. But now, behold, they are led about by Satan, even as chaff is driven before the wind, or as a vessel is tossed about upon the waves, without sail or anchor, or without anything wherewith to steer her; and even as she is, so are they. And behold, the Lord hath reserved their blessings, which they might have received in the land, for the Gentiles who shall possess the land.

But behold, it shall come to pass that they shall be driven and scattered by the Gentiles; and after they have been driven and scattered by the Gentiles, behold, then will the Lord remember the covenant which he made unto Abraham and unto all the house of Israel. And also the Lord will remember the prayers of the righteous, which have been put up unto him for them.

And then, O ye Gentiles, how can ye stand before the power of God, except ye shall repent and turn from your evil ways? Know ye not that ye are in the hands of God?  Know ye not that he hath all power, and at his great command the earth shall be rolled together as a scroll? Therefore, repent ye, and humble yourselves before him, lest he shall come out in justice against you—lest a remnant of the seed of Jacob shall go forth among you as a lion, and tear you in pieces, and there is none to deliver.

(Book of Mormon | Mormon 5:8 - 24)


Urban Fables and Tales
Therefore, I need not to remind you again that we are living in very perilous times. And also that this wicked and perverse generation is given into fables instead of believing the truth as spoken by the holy prophets. These are such fables as the fables of SNOW WHITE, BLOOD SUCKING BATS, WEREWOLVES and HARRY POTTER tales among others. They all start with some form of sorceries. First the Evil Witch with a magic poison trying to murder or put to sleep the damsel; and then they end with a boy trying to tap into obscure powers to destroy the Evil ONE.  But it is all a strong delusion by the evil one to lull or smother the souls of its victims to devour them. For the devil goes up and down or hither and thither like a killer shark or as a beast of the forest seeking whom he may devour.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

(New Testament | 1 Peter 5:8)

Now what you do not know is where the inspiration of those who write those fables comes from.  And also beware that these fable creators are only telling and enacting the tales of very audacious and subtle demons surrounding them. In sum, it all means that the bottomless pit or hell is now wide open and score legions upon score legions of demons of the foulest and most ancient kinds are now preparing their hosts with these fables and some of them are already emerging to possess all those who indulge in all forms of drugs and/or sorceries. And their purpose and intent is to destroy the world. They come to divide and conquer the whole world and make brother go against brother, father against son and son against father and mother against daughter and daughter against mother in madness and in blood thirsty hysteria in order to destroy the wicked of the entire human civilization. Because it is by the wicked that the wicked are destroyed.

But, behold, the judgments of God will overtake the wicked; and it is by the wicked that the wicked are punished; for it is the wicked that stir up the hearts of the children of men unto bloodshed.

(Book of Mormon | Mormon 4:5)

Flesh Piled up as Dung
And this is not the first or the last time this is happening even the first time that it happened even in historical times.  Even nowadays we can see in some dry and parched land or countries in the Middle East where some of the most potent drugs or sorceries came from or are still being elaborated are in revolt and turmoil. That there the life of a man is esteemed as nothing. 

Blood poured out as Dust

And that their blood is poured out as dust and their flesh as the dung.  This is why you hear in the news here and there that a terrorist blew himself here and there taking with him or her as many as he or she can. 

Lost Civilizations
This is why we now the anthropologists searching for ancient civilizations that disappeared as mysteriously as they emerged even as the Mayas and their progenitors here in Post Columbian and pre Columbian America.  Here are some scriptural excepts as we know them that convey and attest to these facts:



“Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD's hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.

(Old Testament | Jeremiah 51:7)

THE  SPIRIT OF TRUTH

“And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.  For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.”

(Old Testament | Isaiah 28:18 - 20)



Samuel The Lamanite
O ye wicked and ye perverse generation; ye hardened and ye stiffnecked people, how long will ye suppose that the Lord will suffer you?  Yea, how long will ye suffer yourselves to be led by foolish and blind guides?  Yea, how long will ye choose darkness rather than light? Yea, behold, the anger of the Lord is already kindled against you; behold, he hath cursed the land because of your iniquity. And behold, the time cometh that he curseth your riches, that they become slippery, that ye cannot hold them; and in the days of your poverty ye cannot retain them. 

And in the days of your poverty ye shall cry unto the Lord; and in vain shall ye cry, for your desolation is already come upon you, and your destruction is made sure; and then shall ye weep and howl in that day, saith the Lord of Hosts.  And then shall ye lament, and say:

O that I had repented, and had not killed the prophets, and stoned them, and cast them out.  Yea, in that day ye shall say: O that we had remembered the Lord our God in the day that he gave us our riches, and then they would not have become slippery that we should lose them; for behold, our riches are gone from us. Behold, we lay a tool here and on the morrow it is gone; and behold, our swords are taken from us in the day we have sought them for battle. Yea, we have hid up our treasures and they have slipped away from us, because of the curse of the land. O that we had repented in the day that the word of the Lord came unto us; for behold the land is cursed, and all things are become slippery, and we cannot hold them.

from Arizona store


The Thing is Made Sure
Behold, we are surrounded by demons, yea, we are encircled about by the angels of him who hath sought to destroy our souls.  Behold, our iniquities are great.  O Lord, canst thou not turn away thine anger from us?  And this shall be your language in those days. But behold, your days of probation are past; ye have procrastinated the day of your salvation until it is everlastingly too late, and your destruction is made sure; yea, for ye have sought all the days of your lives for that which ye could not obtain; and ye have sought for happiness in doing iniquity, which thing is contrary to the nature of that righteousness which is in our great and Eternal Head. 

O ye people of the land, that ye would hear my words!  And I pray that the anger of the Lord be turned away from you, and that ye would repent and be saved.

(Book of Mormon | Helaman 13:29 - 39)

Hateful Bird
AND after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying:

Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city!  for in one hour is thy judgment come.

And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.

And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!  For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. 

And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!  And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness!  for in one hour is she made desolate.

Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.  And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

(New Testament | Revelation 18:1 - 24)

But wickedness did prevail upon the face of the whole land, insomuch that the Lord did take away his beloved disciples, and the work of miracles and of healing did cease because of the iniquity of the people. And there were no gifts from the Lord, and the Holy Ghost did not come upon any, because of their wickedness and unbelief. And I, being fifteen years of age and being somewhat of a sober mind, therefore I was visited of the Lord, and tasted and knew of the goodness of Jesus.

 And I did endeavor to preach unto this people, but my mouth was shut, and I was forbidden that I should preach unto them; for behold they had wilfully rebelled against their God; and the beloved disciples were taken away out of the land, because of their iniquity. But I did remain among them, but I was forbidden to preach unto them, because of the hardness of their hearts; and because of the hardness of their hearts the land was cursed for their sake.


Secret Combinations
And these Gadianton robbers, who were among the Lamanites, did infest the land, insomuch that the inhabitants thereof began to hide up their treasures in the earth; and they became slippery, because the Lord had cursed the land, that they could not hold them, nor retain them again.

And it came to pass that there were sorceries, and witchcrafts, and magics; and the power of the evil one was wrought upon all the face of the land, even unto the fulfilling of all the words of Abinadi, and also Samuel the Lamanite.

(Book of Mormon | Mormon 1:13 - 19)

And now I write somewhat concerning the sufferings of this people.  For according to the knowledge which I have received from Amoron, behold, the Lamanites have many prisoners, which they took from the tower of Sherrizah; and there were men, women, and children. And the husbands and fathers of those women and children they have slain; and they feed the women upon the flesh of their husbands, and the children upon the flesh of their fathers; and no water, save a little, do they give unto them.

And notwithstanding this great abomination of the Lamanites, it doth not exceed that of our people in Moriantum.  For behold, many of the daughters of the Lamanites have they taken prisoners; and after depriving them of that which was most dear and precious above all things, which is chastity and virtue— And after they had done this thing, they did murder them in a most cruel manner, torturing their bodies even unto death; and after they have done this, they devour their flesh like unto wild beasts, because of the hardness of their hearts; and they do it for a token of bravery.

O my beloved son, how can a people like this, that are without civilization— (And only a few years have passed away, and they were a civil and a delightsome people) But O my son, how can a people like this, whose delight is in so much abomination— How can we expect that God will stay his hand in judgment against us?

Behold, my heart cries: Wo unto this people.  Come out in judgment, O God, and hide their sins, and wickedness, and abominations from before thy face!

And again, my son, there are many widows and their daughters who remain in Sherrizah; and that part of the provisions which the Lamanites did not carry away, behold, the army of Zenephi has carried away, and left them to wander whithersoever they can for food; and many old women do faint by the way and die. And the army which is with me is weak; and the armies of the Lamanites are betwixt Sherrizah and me; and as many as have fled to the army of Aaron have fallen victims to their awful brutality.

Nanking Masacre
O the depravity of my people!  They are without order and without mercy.  Behold, I am but a man, and I have but the strength of a man, and I cannot any longer enforce my commands. And they have become strong in their perversion; and they are alike brutal, sparing none, neither old nor young; and they delight in everything save that which is good; and the suffering of our women and our children upon all the face of this land doth exceed everything; yea, tongue cannot tell, neither can it be written.

And now, my son, I dwell no longer upon this horrible scene.  Behold, thou knowest the wickedness of this people; thou knowest that they are without principle, and past feeling; and their wickedness doth exceed that of the Lamanites. Behold, my son, I cannot recommend them unto God lest he should smite me. But behold, my son, I recommend thee unto God, and I trust in Christ that thou wilt be saved; and I pray unto God that he will spare thy life, to witness the return of his people unto him, or their utter destruction; for I know that they must perish except they repent and return unto him.

And if they perish it will be like unto the Jaredites, because of the wilfulness of their hearts, seeking for blood and revenge. And if it so be that they perish, we know that many of our brethren have deserted over unto the Lamanites, and many more will also desert over unto them; wherefore, write somewhat a few things, if thou art spared and I shall perish and not see thee; but I trust that I may see thee soon; for I have sacred records that I would deliver up unto thee.

My son, be faithful in Christ; and may not the things which I have written grieve thee, to weigh thee down unto death; but may Christ lift thee up, and may his sufferings and death, and the showing his body unto our fathers, and his mercy and long-suffering, and the hope of his glory and of eternal life, rest in your mind forever. And may the grace of God the Father, whose throne is high in the heavens, and our Lord Jesus Christ, who sitteth on the right hand of his power, until all things shall become subject unto him, be, and abide with you forever.  Amen.

(Book of Mormon | Moroni 9:7 - 26)

These things I have written and diligently compiled for your learning and instruction, so that you know that unless we speedily repent and amend our ways we must unavoidably suffer these perils. And I also do it for the intent that by your own free will and choice you bengin to search the scriptures with earnest interest and desire so that you believe and exercise faith in Jesus Christ. This is so that he can protect you from the sins of the world as he is now protecting me and my family. And as much as I have prayed to give me strength and deliver me from temptation; he has delivered me. For what he says unto one he says unto all and he said unto me:

I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

(New Testament | Revelation 3:8 - 10)

And these things I humbly say as one having authority in the holy and sacred name of Jesus Christ amen.

Attentively Yours
