Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.(New Testament | Mark 6:3)
A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.(New Testament | Matthew 12:35 - 42)
In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.(Old Testament | Genesis 7:11)
The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his 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 through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.(Old Testament | Genesis 6:11 - 13)
And it came to pass that Noah prophesied, and taught the things of God, even as it was in the beginning. And the Lord said unto Noah: My Spirit shall not always strive with man, for he shall know that all flesh shall die; yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years; and if men do not repent, I will send in the floods upon them.And in those days there were giants on the earth, and they sought Noah to take away his life; but the Lord was with Noah, and the power of the Lord was upon him.And the Lord ordained Noah after his own order, and commanded him that he should go forth and declare his Gospel unto the children of men, even as it was given unto Enoch.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.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.(Pearl of Great Price | Moses 8:16 - 27)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 8:28 - 30)
AND now it came to pass that according to our record, and we know our record to be true, for behold, it was a just man who did keep the record—for he truly did many miracles in the name of Jesus; and there was not any man who could do a miracle in the name of Jesus save he were cleansed every whit from his iniquity—And now it came to pass, if there was no mistake made by this man in the reckoning of our time, the thirty and third year had passed away; And the people began to look with great earnestness for the sign which had been given by the prophet Samuel, the Lamanite, yea, for the time that there should be darkness for the space of three days over the face of the land.And there began to be great doubtings and disputations among the people, notwithstanding so many signs had been given. And it came to pass in the thirty and fourth year, in the first month, on the fourth day of the month, there arose a great storm, such an one as never had been known in all the land.And there was also a great and terrible tempest; and there was terrible thunder, insomuch that it did shake the whole earth as if it was about to divide asunder.And there were exceedingly sharp lightnings, such as never had been known in all the land. And the city of Zarahemla did take fire. And the city of Moroni did sink into the depths of the sea, and the inhabitants thereof were drowned. And the earth was carried up upon the city of Moronihah, that in the place of the city there became a great mountain. And there was a great and terrible destruction in the land southward.But behold, there was a more great and terrible destruction in the land northward; for behold, the whole face of the land was changed, because of the tempest and the whirlwinds, and the thunderings and the lightnings, and the exceedingly great quaking of the whole earth. And the highways were broken up, and the level roads were spoiled, and many smooth places became rough. And many great and notable cities were sunk, and many were burned, and many were shaken till the buildings thereof had fallen to the earth, and the inhabitants thereof were slain, and the places were left desolate.And there were some cities which remained; but the damage thereof was exceedingly great, and there were many in them who were slain. And there were some who were carried away in the whirlwind; and whither they went no man knoweth, save they know that they were carried away.And thus the face of the whole earth became deformed, because of the tempests, and the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the quaking of the earth. And behold, the rocks were rent in twain; they were broken up upon the face of the whole earth, insomuch that they were found in broken fragments, and in seams and in cracks, upon all the face of the land.And it came to pass that when the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the storm, and the tempest, and the quakings of the earth did cease—for behold, they did last for about the space of three hours; and it was said by some that the time was greater; nevertheless, all these great and terrible things were done in about the space of three hours—and then behold, there was darkness upon the face of the land.And it came to pass that there was thick darkness upon all the face of the land, insomuch that the inhabitants thereof who had not fallen could feel the vapor of darkness. And there could be no light, because of the darkness, neither candles, neither torches; neither could there be fire kindled with their fine and exceedingly dry wood, so that there could not be any light at all. And there was not any light seen, neither fire, nor glimmer, neither the sun, nor the moon, nor the stars, for so great were the mists of darkness which were upon the face of the land.And it came to pass that it did last for the space of three days that there was no light seen; and there was great mourning and howling and weeping among all the people continually; yea, great were the groanings of the people, because of the darkness and the great destruction which had come upon them.And in one place they were heard to cry, saying:O that we had repented before this great and terrible day, and then would our brethren have been spared, and they would not have been burned in that great city Zarahemla.And in another place they were heard to cry and mourn, saying:O that we had repented before this great and terrible day, and had not killed and stoned the prophets, and cast them out; then would our mothers and our fair daughters, and our children have been spared, and not have been buried up in that great city Moronihah. And thus were the howlings of the people great and terrible.(Book of Mormon | 3 Nephi 8:1 - 25)
Are we not today living in the very same predicaments of corruption and violence as the ancient? Cannot we see before our eyes that the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD is near, even at the very doors? He has been coming for nearly two thousand years, don you thing that he is about to reach his final destination, which is the earth, his footstool? Certainly we are, but many have ceased to be astonished. They have hardened their hearts and have ceased to feel. Many have closed their eyes to the truth and prefer to believe a lie. And many have willfully clogged their ears that they are dull of hearing and they imagine a vain thing. As the prophets recently said, may have ceased to marvel at the sign and tokes of the end times. The question remains: IS IT STILL WONDERFUL TO YOU?
AND it came to pass that thus passed away the ninety and fifth year also, and the people began to forget those signs and wonders which they had heard, and began to be less and less astonished at a sign or a wonder from heaven, insomuch that they began to be hard in their hearts, and blind in their minds, and began to disbelieve all which they had heard and seen—Imagining up some vain thing in their hearts, that it was wrought by men and by the power of the devil, to lead away and deceive the hearts of the people; and thus did Satan get possession of the hearts of the people again, insomuch that he did blind their eyes and lead them away to believe that the doctrine of Christ was a foolish and a vain thing.And it came to pass that the people began to wax strong in wickedness and abominations; and they did not believe that there should be any more signs or wonders given; and Satan did go about, leading away the hearts of the people, tempting them and causing them that they should do great wickedness in the land.And thus did pass away the ninety and sixth year; and also the ninety and seventh year; and also the ninety and eighth year; and also the ninety and ninth year; And also an hundred years had passed away since the days of Mosiah, who was king over the people of the Nephites.And six hundred and nine years had passed away since Lehi left Jerusalem.(Book of Mormon | 3 Nephi 2:1 - 6)
“…There are so many wonders in this world. However, sometimes when we have them constantly before our eyes, we take them for granted. We look, but we don’t really see; we hear, but we don’t really listen. During His earthly ministry, Jesus said to His disciples: “Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:“For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.”1
I have often wondered what it would have been like to live at the time of our Savior. Can you imagine sitting at His feet? feeling His embrace? witnessing as He ministered to others? And yet so many who met Him failed to recognize—to “see”—that the very Son of God was living among them.We too are privileged to live in an exceptional time.
The prophets of old saw the work of the Restoration as “a marvelous work … , yea, a marvelous work and a wonder.”2 In no previous dispensation have so many missionaries been called, so many nations been opened for the gospel message, and so many temples been built throughout the world.
For us, as Latter-day Saints, wonders also occur in our individual lives. They include our own personal conversion, the answers we receive to our prayers and the tender blessings God showers upon us daily.
To marvel at the wonders of the gospel is a sign of faith. It is to recognize the hand of the Lord in our lives and in everything around us. Our amazement also produces spiritual strength. It gives us the energy to remain anchored in our faith and to engage ourselves in the work of salvation.
But let us beware. Our ability to marvel is fragile. Over the long term, such things as casual commandment keeping, apathy, or even weariness may set in and make us insensitive to even the most remarkable signs and miracles of the gospel.
The Book of Mormon describes a period, very similar to our own, that preceded the coming of the Messiah to the Americas. Suddenly the signs of His birth appeared in the heavens. The people were so stricken with astonishment that they humbled themselves, and nearly all were converted. However, only a short four years later, “the people began to forget those signs and wonders which they had heard, and began to be less and less astonished at a sign or a wonder from heaven, … and began to disbelieve all which they had heard and seen.”3
My brothers and sisters, is the gospel still wonderful to you? Can you yet see, hear, feel, and marvel? Or have your spiritual sensors gone into standby mode? Whatever your personal situation, I invite you to do three things…
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.(Old Testament | Joel 2:28 - 32)
And after your testimony cometh wrath and indignation upon the people. For after your testimony cometh the testimony of earthquakes, that shall cause groanings in the midst of her, and men shall fall upon the ground and shall not be able to stand. And also cometh the testimony of the voice of thunderings, and the voice of lightnings, and the voice of tempests, and the voice of the waves of the sea heaving themselves beyond their bounds.And all things shall be in commotion; and surely, men's hearts shall fail them; for fear shall come upon all people.(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 88:88 - 91)
Now, before I forget, I have a dream to tell. Two nights ago, I dreamed a dream. In the dream I was inside my house with some of my family listening to the NPR news in the radio. Then came a know friend or acquaintance that lives in Maryland whose name is Ricardo Padilla; and he took the radio outside. Apparently he wanted to listen to music outside. I then followed him outside and I saw a violent brawl of wild beasts fighting outside my back yard while the children were doing their homework. I saw a great lion fighting against a huge Black a Panther.These powerful animals were roaring, buffeting each other and rolling violently on the ground in excess of rudeness. And when I arrived I roared to them so furiously that they stopped fighting each other.Then, not having enough, the black panther begun to fight with intent to devour my wife. And I saw them both rolling off on the floor with somebody that appeared to be as my wife. And when I saw that, I got into the fight and begun to fight the black panther and to roar furiously. The panther ceased to fight my wife and wanted to fight me, but I was not horse playing as they appeared to be, I would have butchered it. And when the black panther saw that I was not playing, it retrieved and took the form of a man and spoke to me. He was dressed as an as ISIS fighter and said to me that he was only playing that I should come down. But I was furious and trusted no one. And I walked the black panther man out of my property and then the dream ended. I did not know what to make of it, but to keep an ear and an aye open in case I encounter any wild beast brawling somewhere.
The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
(New Testament | Matthew 13:41 - 42)
Then as the day and the routines thereof begun, I did my morning errands. I went to drop the kids at school and did other things. In the process, while driving, I was listening in part to a Jewish woman news talk at the 96.5 dial in the radio. She was brawling with her listeners at the Garland incident with regards to free speech, Isis, Islam, and Pamela Greer, anti-Semitism and what not along with the commentaries thereof.
To those who offend and are offended and who judge and condemn a person who rebukes at the gate by a misused word or for not being politically correct such as those who demonizes the mayor of Baltimore for the word thug. And also the incident in garland Texas for in my remarks, all things are considered. Please remember the words of Roosevelt with regards to the man who is actually in the arena. There is no effort without error...having said that I commented on many posts of all sources the following remarks that I would love to hear you discuss in your program. Would it not be more profitable for us all to be peacemakers rather than haters and offenders?
All of you? What a waste of freedom of expression all of you are wrong, those that offend and those that get offended. If we all would take an eye for an eye we all will be blind, maimed, in wheel chairs or six feet under or cast away as dung.The scriptures teach let not corrupt words proceed out of your mouth, but those that are good for the use of edifying, that you may minister grace to the hearers.Any portrayal of an entity, eminence or dignitary that does not represent the good name or character of such individual, but that purposely demonizes him or her is a form of false witness or a lie which is punitive in a court of law. The Lord said that even if we call our brother Racca we will be in danger of hell fire or to be subject to be judged. How about lying to the FBI or a competent judge, or the IRS as a gesture of freedom of speech? Do you think that will fly?It is true that offenses will or may come, but woe to the person from whom they come.
Here is another example of free speech that you all may like. How about taking away the sign or logo of Starbucks and leave the mermaid bare naked with her legs wide open as they appear in the logo as instead of a bimbo you put your mother's picture and give it to her for a Mother's Day gift? Do you think your mother will like it? (Proverbially Speaking) Will she not grab a brick and thrust it in your skull and then for lack of better chemicals attempt to wash your eyes and mouth with ammonia, bleach and muriatic acid? Or what about a nude painting of your little sister or daughter, or any nude and immoral act? Will you allow it in the park, museum, synagogue, holy scriptures, church or your even your own home?
You fools that have no better thing to do than to mock and offend. The Lords has said that fools mock but they shall mourn.That woman who made that contest to mock the revered Muslim leader has blood in her hands and she is also staining your own garments with filthiness. Then you will go and embrace your children good night and kiss them and pollute them also.Don't you know that sins are liquid in nature? You that profess to follow the law of Moses but don't keep it should know better.But that is not all, it is also written that with the same stick that you mete your brother you will be meted. You should be grateful that the Arabs or Muslims are no longer pagans or heathen as before, that they no longer worship or revere idols made of wood or stone, they don't worship stars or flags nor parched land, but their father Muhammad who is in heaven. By requesting that contest of mocking Mohammed she has disgraced or marred the name of our own Father which is in heaven, even Abraham, who in turn is the father of Mohammed.Have you forgotten you fools that Abraham is the father of Ishmael, even the father of twelve princes similar to the twelve princes of Israel?All of you that get insanely angry and offended at any form of hate speech and antisemitism must be burning with rage because those who called for that mocking act of Mohammed, unless of course you have forgotten that Mohamed is as much a descendant of Shem as we are. Those who cry foul play at every act of antisemitism and don't get a giggle about the mocking of Mohammed are the type of people that spit up and falls back at them and at their loved ones.Now that you know, you better put on sack cloth and mourn, for Abraham is exceedingly angry at all of you and he may rent his garment and disown you? Have not your immediate fathers and Rabbi' teach you manners? You need to repent and amend your ways and learn that inside the covers of every book there is something good, like the golden rule and even though the words may be altogether corrupt, at least you can preserve a lost or forgotten language.And last but not least, know also that the spirit of contention one against another despite creed, language, nationality, race or age is not of God, but of the devil.I am nothing but your little, ruddy and unlearned brother. You the purebred, the noble and learned should give me good manners and good examples to me no the other way around.1 Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! Luke 17:1Luke 17 Jesus speaks of offenses, forgiveness, and faith—Even the faithful are unprofitable servants—Ten lepers are healed—Jesus discourses on the Second Coming. lds.org ·
Dear Sean Hannity, The US constitution does not specifically say all things that are allowed and that are forbidden. If you look for only three legs on a cat, you will never find it. But there is the word of the law and the spirit of the law. First of all, the US Constitution is totally inadequate for an immoral or godless people. There is no morality without GOD neither Ethics without secular law. IN a Godless and perverse generation, all things are permissible including what happen in Garland, for where there is no law, there is no freedom, and where the law is not applied, there is no condemnation. IN other words, you may be defending your so called rights, but you are no different than Isis. The same way that you defend your own freedom they are to their own view freedom fighters. They are tired of the subjugation snf oppression from all developed countries. In their eyes, there is nothing that we have to offer that they want, unlike you, they do not regard, gold nor silver. And that is the rented javelin the LORD is used to vex this nation and drain its resources. I am not happy about it, but that is the case, but you need eyes of faith to see and ears to understand,
We all know that the constitution in the bill of rights specifically protect the right TO life, TO Liberty and To property or the pursuit of happiness. And there you have the first ten amendments which include the right to speak or to express one self, right to practice religion in accordance to the dictates of our conscience whether we want to worship the true and living GOD of these lands who is Jesus Christ, a piece of wood, a stone or even a dog just to name a few. Plus the right to bear arms ans so forth. God has given us these right for the protection of all flesh in accordance to moral agency. He has a better law, but he has suffered the US constitution to be established because people cannot endure the discipline of GOD. Now, with you are an articulated and a street saavy spokesperson, and you know that. But I believe you have tunnel vision, you only see what you want to see. You are also shallow, superficial and slotful because you need to be shown to believe or until you are commanded.
Therefore, If the US constitution protects the right to life, liberty and property, that it cannot be taken without due process, does it not automatically imply that we do not have the right to KILL, TO deprive anyone of liberty and of property?
That means that in the eyes of the law of the land, all homosexuals, all person that kill thru abortion or for special interests, and other and all those that deprive anyone from freedom and take property unjustly without due process, deny themselves liberty and peace. are doomed to suffer the pains hell unless they repent and amend their ways.
Therefore, anything which is against life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is forbidden by the law of the Land. IN other words, you cannot kill, enslave or steal, nor command anyone to shut up, or not to live their religion they way they please neither can you promote nor do anything like unto it. IN all essence, the simple way to put this is that My rights do end where yours begin, and vise-verse or face the consequences either by natural law or the laws of nature. It is not as one way street but a two way.
You call this your country, but it is not your country, you are only a tenant that has lord over it and your lease has ended. You don't have documents that say this country is yours. I DO HAVE SUCH DOCUMENTS and I can deport you whenever I please if I chose to do so, but not without do process. We are the ones that change the turnout of your elections. You call yourself a conservative, but what is it do you preserve, if you cannot defend the rights of other. You are as liberal as you can believe.
The people of the Middle east that practice Islam as a religion, may be coarse and severe in how they administer their laws, but they are no lesser human beings than you. You empowered them with destructive weapons and now you suffer for their deeds. In fact, the so called christian in this Republic and even in the Land of Israel, just to name a few, have proven to be more perverse than them in the things that matter most, because they have forsaken the commandments and the law of GOD. See for yourselves.
You permit, idolatry, abortion, adultery, deception, exploitation and oppression of the minorities and the alien. As a matter of fact, you are too good to admit that you hate black people, immigrants and why not, ALL LIBERALS at least until you find out that you are no different than them.
There is not one negative word that comes out of your mouth against Benjamin NatanYahu, because to you he is an Idol, but you forsake to see that he is no different than any other head of state. If you had served Obama with half of the energy you spend to praise the PM of Israel, we would be in a better country today. This is because you protect special interests, you know which butts you need to kiss to remain in business just like Alex JONES.
You keep complaining ADAMANTLY about a stupid cartoon, and are mad at people going against that godless woman called Pamela Geller, but you fail to realize that blood was shed in the streets of out country as a result of her provocations. This stupid cartoon incident, can trigger a sequence of event that may bring about the next apocalypse.
If you so much defend your GOD given rights, why don't you allow your children to listen to your program or watch tv and what not. Is not that age discrimination? Of course it is. And it should be because you are protecting their innocence until they are of age. Likewise, if you are going to protect your right of speech you should protect not only that but the right of your family, and the right of every American regardless of race, sect, party or denomination, I know I would. I am here defending my own faith, those of the protestant faiths, and also those of the Jewish faith, and Hindu or Buddhist and last but not least, those of the Muslem faith. And least but not first, the American Idol worship religion or faith with all their movie stars, singers, comedians and luminaries. You my friend, if you do not find my speech offensive, you are an inbred swine. You were born with the bacon on your plate. I, on the other hand, chose to become a US citizen. I chose to be free and to remain free. You lost your freedom a long time ago. What you do everyday in your shows is nothing but a dead cat bounce. You wanted to see blood in the Pachiao fight last weekend, I will show you blood from which sight you may nor recover.
Despite of all the followers you have who praise you, you know why your news activism is not effective? It is because you get paid to to what you do. I on the other hand, pull my own boots as you have seen. The time will come, and it is speedily at the gates that unless you speedily and fully repent and amend your wicked ways, all that do wickedly will be destroyed or deported and this nation will remain almost empty, for GOD has sworn it as a firm decree and he will not turn back. It is recorded.
For assuredly as the Lord liveth they shall see that the terrible one is brought to naught, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off; And they that make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of naught.
(Book of Mormon | 2 Nephi 27:31 - 32)
And the Father hath commanded me that I should give unto you this land, for your inheritance.

Revelation and prophecy on war, given through Joseph Smith the Prophet, December 25, 1832. HC 1:301–302. This section was received at a time when the brethren were reflecting and reasoning upon African slavery on the American continent and the slavery of the children of men throughout the world.
1–4, War foretold between the Northern States and the Southern States;
5–8, Great calamities shall fall upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
1 VERILY, thus saith the Lord concerning the wars that will shortly come to pass, beginning at the rebellion of South Carolina, which will eventually terminate in the death and misery of many souls;
2 And the time will come that war will be poured out upon all nations, beginning at this place.
3 For behold, the Southern States shall be divided against the Northern States, and the Southern States will call on other nations, even the nation of Great Britain, as it is called, and they shall also call upon other nations, in order to defend themselves against other nations; and then war shall be poured out upon all nations.
4 And it shall come to pass, after many days, slaves shall rise up against their masters, who shall be marshaled and disciplined for war.
(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 87:1 - 4)
And it shall come to pass also that the remnants who are left of the land will marshal themselves, and shall become exceedingly angry, and shall vex the Gentiles with a sore vexation.
6 And thus, with the sword and by bloodshed the inhabitants of the earth shall mourn; and with famine, and plague, and earthquake, and the thunder of heaven, and the fierce and vivid lightning also, shall the inhabitants of the earth be made to feel the wrath, and indignation, and chastening hand of an Almighty God, until the consumption decreed hath made a full end of all nations;
7 That the cry of the saints, and of the blood of the saints, shall cease to come up into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth, from the earth, to be avenged of their enemies.
8 Wherefore, stand ye in holy places, and be not moved, until the day of the Lord come; for behold, it cometh quickly, saith the Lord. Amen.
(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 87:5 - 8)
After the above comment, I knew I was entering into dark territory, yes, even into streams of filthy waters. I knew I would get some nasty replies to which I had to respond today. The replies kept coming, but it was late at night and the battery of my phone went very low. I did my prayer along with my family and hoped for inspiration from GOD to get me thru the night. I prayed and hoped that if I had to respond assertively to these people, that I would do so with his word or sword in hand. Up to this moment and hour, I have not yet read their messages or concerns.
But I already begun to talk to them or to respond even without knowing what they said to me thru this errand, for the LORD has a word with them. But before I give you his response, I need to tell you about yet another dream that I had last night which is the reason by which I am here writing this errand today.
And it came to pass, as I journeyed from the land of Cainan, by the sea east, I beheld a vision; and lo, the heavens I saw, and the Lord spake with me, and gave me commandment; wherefore, for this cause, to keep the commandment, I speak forth these words.(Pearl of Great Price | Moses 6:42)
And the Lord said unto Enoch: Go forth and do as I have commanded thee, and no man shall pierce thee. Open thy mouth, and it shall be filled, and I will give thee utterance, for all flesh is in my hands, and I will do as seemeth me good.Say unto this people:Choose ye this day, to serve the Lord God who made you.Behold my Spirit is upon you, wherefore all thy words will I justify; and the mountains shall flee before you, and the rivers shall turn from their course; and thou shalt abide in me, and I in you; therefore walk with me.And the Lord spake unto Enoch, and said unto him: Anoint thine eyes with clay, and wash them, and thou shalt see. And he did so. And he beheld the spirits that God had created; and he beheld also things which were not visible to the natural eye; and from thenceforth came the saying abroad in the land: A seer hath the Lord raised up unto his people.And it came to pass that Enoch went forth in the land, among the people, standing upon the hills and the high places, and cried with a loud voice, testifying against their works; and all men were offended because of him.And they came forth to hear him, upon the high places, saying unto the tent–keepers: Tarry ye here and keep the tents, while we go yonder to behold the seer, for he prophesieth, and there is a strange thing in the land; a wild man hath come among us.And it came to pass when they heard him, no man laid hands on him; for fear came on all them that heard him; for he walked with God.(Pearl of Great Price | Moses 6:32 - 39)
They threw venom at me thinking that I was trampling upon their law and liberties, but in all truth what I had commended was indeed in favor of their law and liberties to which the LORD responds:O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.(New Testament | Matthew 12:34)
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.(New Testament | Revelation 3:9)

You shall call his name Ishmael, Because the Lord has heard your affliction. He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against every man, And every man's hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren."
Apostle Paul also has warned us about them in Galatians 4:22-24 "For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through promise, which things are symbolic. For these are the two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar."

- Dee Joey Brown You’re incorrect on all accounts in your statements. The purpose of the event was not to mock Mohammad but to expose a dangerous political element of Islamic doctrine. What may appear to be hatred or rudenss is actually public resistance to a doctrine that mandates that the non-believer obey what they deem to be a false and oppressive religion. My belief that Mohammad is a false prophet is just as important as your belief that he was a true prophet. Utilizing free speech rights to express what I consider an important and vital opinion should not cause me to fear the death penalty retribution which is a mandate of Islam. Speaking out against an oppressive cult is not retribution; rather it’s an act of compassion to inform people of the dangers and harm of Islam, particularly in the area of human rights, for which free speech is vital. Standing for truth always comes with the risk that some will disagree and even be offended, but it's a risk that should be taken. How a person handles being offended is their choice. Identifying Allah as the same god as the Christian god is also incorrect. Christians worship the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, not the god of Ishmael. Mohammad tried to identify his god with the Jewish and Christian god to gain acceptance. Muslims have been tricked. When Mohammed was rejected by the Jews and Christians he was angered and declared them apostates. Jesus used harsh words for religious leaders who prevented people from coming to the truth. I believe that had he met Mohammed face to face he would have harshly and publicly criticized him. Isaiah also mocked leaders who worshipped false gods. The Christian bible supports both kindness and ridicule. Like · 8 hrs4Chris Edwards I'm guessing this drivel was typed by a devil worshipping follower of the paedophile prophet Like · 10 hrs56

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.(New Testament | Revelation 2:7 - 9)
Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall:The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob.
(from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)
Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb: The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.(Old Testament | Genesis 49:22 - 26)
The spirit of GOD tells me in the gut, that it is the LORD who approves and reproves. Therefore, I am just an unprofitable servant of the true and living GOD doing his job. It is written that the truth only hurts the wicked soul for the word of God is sharper than a two edge sword that cuts asunder bone and marrow, thus, it pierces them to the very center. Those who harden their hearts against the truth, find it hard to swallow, but the righteous receive it with gladness for they are constant; and the truth justifies them.
AND now it came to pass that after I, Nephi, had made an end of speaking to my brethren, behold they said unto me: Thou hast declared unto us hard things, more than we are able to bear.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.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.And it came to pass that I, Nephi, did exhort my brethren, with all diligence, to keep the commandments of the Lord.(Book of Mormon | 1 Nephi 16:1 - 4)
O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.(New Testament | Matthew 3:7 - 12)
And moreover, I say unto you that it has thus been revealed unto me, that the words which have been spoken by our fathers are true, even so according to the spirit of prophecy which is in me, which is also by the manifestation of the Spirit of God.
I say unto you, that I know of myself that whatsoever I shall say unto you, concerning that which is to come, is true; and I say unto you, that I know that Jesus Christ shall come, yea, the Son, the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace, and mercy, and truth. And behold, it is he that cometh to take away the sins of the world, yea, the sins of every man who steadfastly believeth on his name.And now I say unto you that this is the order after which I am called, yea, to preach unto my beloved brethren, yea, and every one that dwelleth in the land; yea, to preach unto all, both old and young, both bond and free; yea, I say unto you the aged, and also the middle aged, and the rising generation; yea, to cry unto them that they must repent and be born again.Yea, thus saith the Spirit: Repent, all ye ends of the earth, for the kingdom of heaven is soon at hand; yea, the Son of God cometh in his glory, in his might, majesty, power, and dominion. Yea, my beloved brethren, I say unto you, that the Spirit saith: Behold the glory of the King of all the earth; and also the King of heaven shall very soon shine forth among all the children of men.And also the Spirit saith unto me, yea, crieth unto me with a mighty voice, saying: Go forth and say unto this people—Repent, for except ye repent ye can in nowise inherit the kingdom of heaven.And again I say unto you, the Spirit saith: Behold, the ax is laid at the root of the tree; therefore every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit shall be hewn down and cast into the fire, yea, a fire which cannot be consumed, even an unquenchable fire. Behold, and remember, the Holy One hath spoken it.And now my beloved brethren, I say unto you, can ye withstand these sayings; yea, can ye lay aside these things, and trample the Holy One under your feet; yea, can ye be puffed up in the pride of your hearts; yea, will ye still persist in the wearing of costly apparel and setting your hearts upon the vain things of the world, upon your riches?Yea, will ye persist in supposing that ye are better one than another; yea, will ye persist in the persecution of your brethren, who humble themselves and do walk after the holy order of God, wherewith they have been brought into this church, having been sanctified by the Holy Spirit, and they do bring forth works which are meet for repentance— Yea, and will you persist in turning your backs upon the poor, and the needy, and in withholding your substance from them?And finally, all ye that will persist in your wickedness, I say unto you that these are they who shall be hewn down and cast into the fire except they speedily repent.And now I say unto you, all you that are desirous to follow the voice of the good shepherd, come ye out from the wicked, and be ye separate, and touch not their unclean things; and behold, their names shall be blotted out, that the names of the wicked shall not be numbered among the names of the righteous, that the word of God may be fulfilled, which saith: The names of the wicked shall not be mingled with the names of my people;For the names of the righteous shall be written in the book of life, and unto them will I grant an inheritance at my right hand. And now, my brethren, what have ye to say against this? I say unto you, if ye speak against it, it matters not, for the word of God must be fulfilled.(Book of Mormon | Alma 5:47 - 58)
He, the LORD has a further a word to say concerning you saying that his spirit will not always strive with man, and that there is no peace for the wicked. Hear the word of the LORD that says:
But draw near hither, ye sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore. Against whom do ye sport yourselves? against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood. Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks?
Among the smooth stones of the stream is thy portion; they, they are thy lot: even to them hast thou poured a drink offering, thou hast offered a meat offering. Should I receive comfort in these? Upon a lofty and high mountain hast thou set thy bed: even thither wentest thou up to offer sacrifice.Behind the doors also and the posts hast thou set up thy remembrance: for thou hast discovered thyself to another than me, and art gone up; thou hast enlarged thy bed, and made thee a covenant with them; thou lovedst their bed where thou sawest it.And thou wentest to the king with ointment, and didst increase thy perfumes, and didst send thy messengers far off, and didst debase thyself even unto hell. Thou art wearied in the greatness of thy way; yet saidst thou not, There is no hope: thou hast found the life of thine hand; therefore thou wast not grieved.And of whom hast thou been afraid or feared, that thou hast lied, and hast not remembered me, nor laid it to thy heart? have not I held my peace even of old, and thou fearest me not?I will declare thy righteousness, and thy works; for they shall not profit thee.When thou criest, let thy companies deliver thee; but the wind shall carry them all away; vanity shall take them: but he that putteth his trust in me shall possess the land, and shall inherit my holy mountain;And shall say, Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way, take up the stumblingblock out of the way of my people.For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made. For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth, and smote him: I hid me, and was wroth, and he went on frowardly in the way of his heart.I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners. I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him.But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.(Old Testament | Isaiah 57:Heading - 21)
The LORD will roar from Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the habitations of the shepherds shall mourn, and the top of Carmel shall wither.(Old Testament | Amos 1:2)
The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.(Old Testament | Joel 3:16)
shall there be evil in a city,
and the LORD hath not KNOWN it?
Publish in the palaces at Ashdod, and in the palaces in the land of Egypt, and say, Assemble yourselves upon the mountains of Samaria, and behold the great tumults in the midst thereof, and the oppressed in the midst thereof.For they know not to do right, saith the LORD, who store up violence and robbery in their palaces.Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; An adversary there shall be even round about the land; and he shall bring down thy strength from thee, and thy palaces shall be spoiled. Thus saith the LORD; As the shepherd taketh out of the mouth of the lion two legs, or a piece of an ear; so shall the children of Israel be taken out that dwell in Samaria in the corner of a bed, and in Damascus in a couch.Hear ye, and testify in the house of Jacob, saith the Lord GOD, the God of hosts,That in the day that I shall visit the transgressions of Israel upon him I will also visit the altars of Beth-el: and the horns of the altar shall be cut off, and fall to the ground.And I will smite the winter house with the summer house; and the houses of ivory shall perish, and the great houses shall have an end, saith the LORD.(Old Testament | Amos 3:3 - 15)
Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people. Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things.Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things. Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength. Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.(Old Testament | Joel 2:1 - 32)
