Hearken To My Voice

A Fundamental Event In Premortal Time

In premortal, Satan offered a plan that would destroy our agency (free choice) with the claim that he would “…redeem all mankind,” and he rebelled against Father’s perfect plan of happiness, “And he became Satan, yea, even the devil, the father of all lies, to deceive and to blind men, and to lead them captive at his will, even as many as would not hearken unto my voice.” (Moses 4:4, bold is mine)  We all knew of this rebellion, and we all rejoiced when Christ said, “Father, thy will be done, and the glory be thine forever.” (Moses 4:2)  Satan, in his chicanery, will take captive all who will “not hearken unto” the voice of the Son of God.

Satan’s Rebellion caused a War in Heaven

That rebellion caused a war in heaven and it is being  enraged today by the globalists (Rev. 12).  In fact,  the globalists, who are working for Satan, are making every effort to take away our God-given sovereignty – the right to choose.  Satan knows it is his last hour before the Savior comes.

His main tools are to keep us from “hearkening to His voice,” which brings peace, love, and joy, and instead move us into hate and fear.  There he can entice us with all the other voices, and some may sound very good at the time, but which are designed to lead away from the voice of the Son of God and into captivity for those who listen to them.

The Church Is Under Condemnation

And now the church is under condemnation because of this sin “And by this, you may know they are under the bondage of sin because they come not unto me.  For whoso cometh not unto me is under the bondage of sin.  And whoso receiveth not my voice is not acquainted with my voice, and is not of me.  And by this, you may know the righteous from the wicked, and the whole world groaneth under sin and darkness even now.  And your minds in times past have been darkened because of unbelief, and because you have treated lightly the things you have received – Which vanity and unbelief have brought the whole church under condemnation.” (D&C 85:49-56)

Kingdom of Christ and Kingdom of the Devil — the Differences

We live in one of the most exciting times in the history of this earth. How blessed we are to live now, and we were each chosen to be here at this time, playing a role.  Indeed, we are at a significant crossroads.  The future will be very different as we will see even more monumental events unfold.

We now orbit the sun every sidereal year in an elliptical orbit coming closest to the sun in January. At a spin axis tilted 23 ½ degrees, the heavens give us our Divine designed seasons for this mortal sphere and provide heating and cooling for all life.  In the future the continents will become one continent again, as part of the “restitution of all things” spoken of by the Apostle Peter (Acts 3:19-21). Our earth will no longer be in our solar system, and we will have a new heaven and a new earth.  Christ will be our light,  instead of the sun.

The First Shall be Last and the Last Shall be First

This grand chiasmus the Savior shared in Matthew 19:30 and 20:16 is explained in detail in an article on AllansTIME.com web site entitled, “Who is Israel.”  In summary the FIRST is Israel, and the LAST is the Gentiles.  Jesus taught that the kingdom of God would be taken from the House of Israel “and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.”  In other words, the FIRST (Israel) had rejected the Christ, and the New Testament tells the story of how it was given to the LAST (the Gentiles).

Then the Gentiles rejected the fullness of the gospel as the world moved into the dark ages, and so the Lord restored the fullness of the Gospel, as the LAST became the FIRST, as  the United States — considered a gentile nation and a promised land — was the recipient of this great blessing in 1830, a blessed land where the fullness of the gospel was restored.  Joseph Smith taught that America is identified with the gentiles. (D&C 109:60)

Characteristics of the Gentile Era

As latter-day revelation makes clear, “the times” of the Gentiles refers to the time when the fullness of the gospel will come among them (D&C 45:24-28).

  1. Revolutionary War and Civil War stops slavery in America.
  2. Land of Liberty brought forth by the Lord with inspired founding documents.
  3. Established a Bible-based ethnic culture in America.
  4. Joseph Smith sees the Father and the Son in Grand Epiphany in 1820 to begin the process of restoration.
  5. The gospel’s fullness restored with Holy Scriptures that support the Bible: The Book of Mormon, Doctrine, and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price.
  6. Aaronic and Melchizedek Priesthoods restored along with gospel ordinances and the same covenant organization as Christ’s Church in the meridian of time.
  7. Ancient prophets restore keys for turning the hearts of the fathers to their children and the children to their fathers and the preparation for the “restitution of all things,” spoken of by the Apostle Peter. (Acts 3:19-21)  The gathering of Israel from the “four-corners” of the earth is in full motion.

Along with the blessings of the Gentile Era, there comes a warning:

When the resurrected Jesus came among the Book of Mormon people here in America, He prophesied, “when the Gentiles shall sin against my gospel, and shall reject the fulness of my gospel… ” then He lists their sins, which now describes America turning their back on the Lord, then He states, “I will bring the fulness of my gospel from among them.”  We are at that day when the FIRST is becoming the LAST as the gospel goes to scattered Israel gathering them from the four-corners of the earth.

But then in His infinite mercy he promises, “if the Gentiles will repent and return unto me, saith the Father, behold they shall be numbered among my people, O house of Israel.” (3 Nephi 16:13)  Only righteous individuals will be able to enjoy the Israel era.

Characteristics of Israel era:

  1. Righteous put on the “whole armor” to protect from the sins of Babylonian encroachment. (Eph. 6:11-18; D&C 27:15-18)
  2. Re-enthrone Liberty and the founding documents’ values in preparation for the ideal (pure in heart) Zion society.
  3. Establish a Zion society based on the pure love of Christ — Bride to meet the Bridegroom.
  4. Jeremiah (31:31-34) comes into fulfillment: we will all know Him (Second Comforter).
  5. New scriptures brought forth: Brass Plates; sealed portion (Isa. 29:11); records from the gathered Tribes of Israel.
  6. Cleansed and purified Church with priesthood practiced as anciently by Enoch.
  7. The full purpose of the temple appreciated; enjoy His Presence and angelic communication, and the Lord’s promise in D&C 93:1.

Currently Satan’s Major Distractions and Destructive Tactics:

  • promoting socialism and communism
  • Satan seeking “sole management of the government.” ( Hel. 6:39)
  • COVID-19 get everyone vaccinated and the “green” movement
  • “Black lives matter” to humiliate and destroy
  • 5G Communication system; a silent and slow killer.
  • New World Order led by the Elites — the “deep state.”
  • The state, not the individual, is sovereign.
  • There are too many people (depopulation strategies).
  • Technocracy to control and monitor everyone: “Mark of the Beast.”

Christ’s Total Victory in Progress:

The scriptures are replete with the signs of His coming; too many to enumerate here.  We live in the “great and dreadful day of the Lord.” Great for the righteous and dreadful for the wicked.  We live during that great day when the LAST is gathering the FIRST,  the great gathering of Israel.  Another definition for Israel is all those who put their trust in the Lord and treasure up his word with the promise that they “shall not be deceived.” (JS-M 37)  When we come unto Him, we take upon us the name of Jesus Christ, we become a part of His covenant family.  We learn in the temple that Israel is another name for Christ.  The House of Israel is the House of Christ — cleansed and purified by His infinite atonement.

We have His promise that wherever we are, He will gather us “as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings.”  “Listen to the voice of Jesus Christ, your Redeemer, the Great I Am, whose arm of mercy hath atoned for your sins; Who will gather his people even as a hen gathered her chickens under her wings, even as many as will hearken to my voice and humble themselves before me, and call upon me in mighty prayer.”

We know Jesus Christ’s second coming is imminent.  The signs in the heavens are increasing, and encouraging those with “eyes to see and ears to hear” to help build and gather ideal Zion societies. These are “the end times” because moral wickedness will end and righteousness will rule in the hearts of men, with Jesus Christ, the Messiah, as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Our connection to Jesus Christ will bind the Devil, and the Lord will destroy Babylon, the Devil’s kingdom on earth. The Lord will restore the earth to her paradisiacal glory.

Some favorite scriptures telling of the end-times are Matt. 24; JS-Matthew; The Book of Daniel and specifically 2:44-45; Acts 3:19-23; Eph. 1:10; Rev. 14:7; the Book of Revelations; 1 Nephi 13:37; chapter 22; 2 Nephi 2:25-27; Mosiah 3:19-20; 3 Nephi chapters 20-23; Mormon chapters 8-9; Ether 13:1-10; Moroni 7 and 10; D&C sections 133, 88 and 45.

We live in that day when “nothing shall be withheld.” (D&C 121:28)  There are 1800 phrases in our scriptures that can be shown to tie back to the language of Adam.  If the scriptures are false, then these phrases could not be there as they are.  How they are is humanly impossible.  Since they are there as they are, the scriptures are true and we have God’s fingerprint in them. QED

I show that the Adamic phrase “And it shall come to pass” occurs more than 200 times in our scriptures and ties to the name of JEHOVAH and events around the restoration of the gospel in America for the world and events leading up to the Second Coming.

For further guidance, listen to the following from Elder David Bednar, an Apostle of the Lord.  President Benson’s: Wake Up Call is a clear clarion statement of the problem.  The Prophet Moroni, some 400 years AD, saw clearly our day and warned us “to awake.”  Read specifically his call to repentance in Ether 8:23-26

If you know of someone who has lost faith, Joseph in Egypt and the Prophet Nephi both prophesied that the Book of Mormon would come forth validating the Bible and build up faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

I pray that we will all choose the Kingdom of Christ and His promised glorious, joyful blessings beyond our comprehension.

What Is Truth

What is TruthWhen Pilate asked Jesus, “What is truth?” Pilate told the Jews he was satisfied with his answer and could “find in him no fault at all.” (John 18:38)  Jesus had already answered this question for His disciples: “I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)  The early followers of Jesus called the Christian movement, “The Way.”  Jesus is the way back to the Father and the greatest of all the gifts of God — Eternal Life. (highlights mine)

He extended the great promise, “If any man will do his will, he shall KNOW of the doctrine, whether it be of God or whether I speak of myself.” (John 7:17) In other words, if we live the doctrine He is teaching, we can know it is true by the fruits. Wherefore by their fruits, ye shall know them.” (Luke 6:43-44)

Does the Resurrection Save Us?

Is not the resurrection of Christ the most miraculous and well documented miracle in the history of the Earth? How are we saved through the atonement? Is it through Christ’s sufferings or is it through His resurrection?”  Most Christians – including members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – look only to the cross and His sufferings to cover our sins as we accept Him as our Savior.  We often hear the prayer phrase, “We are grateful for Thy atoning sacrifice” — leaving out the resurrection.

Without the Resurrection We Are Damned

Does it surprise you then to know that without the resurrection we are damned!  We would be in Satan’s grasp forever.  For the early Christians who lived at the time Jesus arose from the tomb, it was such a spectacular event that they could not stop talking about it.  To see the glorified risen Lord after all his suffering and most horrendous death on the cross was a contrast that the early Christians shared with great enthusiasm.

The membership in the Church grew rapidly as people internalized the implications of Jesus arising from the dead and opening the door for all of us to do the same – along with the anticipated and promised blessings of eternal life. Before His resurrection eternal life was a belief and hope for the faithful.  With His resurrection, it became a reality.

Christmas – Gospel of Good News

Christmas is a wonderful time to share the “Gospel of Good News” and I would like to share a brief account of my conversion to Christ. It has do with my losing most my hearing in my left ear, for which I’m grateful and I will tell you why. First, let me give you a bit of background which taught me that the Lord’s ways are not man’s ways.

My Way

After graduating from BYU, I accepted a job at the National Bureau of Standards, where they would pay my tuition to the University of Colorado, if I worked full time. We had a goal to get a doctorate and come back and teach at BYU.

However, I was in no hurry; we were raising our family, were active in the church, and helped build a chapel in Boulder and the Denver West Stake Center in Arvada for our church. I also taught at the university.

In 1965, I was working on my master’s thesis toward understanding how to best use atomic clocks, as they were relatively new at that time. It was a challenging problem, and classical theories were not adequate for the task.

The Lord’s Way

Come to Christ and Conquer Satan

How Does The Great Deceiver Work?

Living in the most exciting time in the history of the Earth and the great deceiver knowing it is his last hour, it behooves us to know his tactics that we are not deceived.  Some of the subtlest lies being perpetrated are, “There is no devil.”   And, “In our sophisticated society people are not possessed by devils; that is a New Testament thing.”

We live in the day of the great division: Those who are humble followers of Christ and those otherwise.  Satan, unfortunately, is having massive success with “those otherwise,” who are not so wise as to the subtleness of Satan!  Satan will do anything to turn us away from Christ or to keep us from coming to Him.
