What does the Bible say? “And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed…” (Isa. 29:11) That is a profound statement, “the vision of all!” In other words, God has records from the beginning to the end – including the “End-Time.”
The Apostle John speaking of the End-Times saw “…another angel… having the everlasting gospel to preach… to every nation.” (Rev. 14:6-7) If the Bible already had the “everlasting gospel,” why would the Lord tell John that? The Apostle Peter promised a “restitution of all things” before the Lord’s Second Coming. (Acts 3:19-21) The Apostle Paul prophesies for our day, “That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ…” (Eph. 1:10)
Joseph Smith translated the unsealed portion of the Book of Mormon, which the world received in 1830. In it the Lord says regarding the sealed portion, we will not have it “until I shall see fit in mine own wisdom to reveal all things unto the children of men.” (2 Nephi 27:22)
SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS
In the year 2017, we saw signs in the heavens that the Lord is preparing to bring forth His ideal society (ZION – the pure in heart). Will the sealed portion of the Lord’s scriptures help in this great process of preparing a people for that great day? We know Christ is, “the way, and the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6) If we are not Christ-centered, then it doesn’t matter where else we are centered. We cannot be part of that ideal society if Babylon is our god.
HOW TO NOT BE DECEIVED
JS-Matthew 37, “And whosoever treasureth up my word, shall not be deceived for the Son of Man shall come, and he shall send his angels before him with the great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together the remainder of his elect from the four winds, from one of heaven to the other.” (bold highlight is mine) Christ is the WORD, and His words are truth, and He uses witnesses. This promise of how to “not be deceived” is repeated twice in the JS translation of the New Testament. It is so important that we become very familiar with the scriptures, especially Isaiah, as Jesus commanded in Third Nephi 23:1-3, and ask the Lord for guidance, because Isaiah is prophesying of our day.
IN THE MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES
The Lord said, “…in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.” (Matt. 18:16) When the Book of Mormon was brought forth the Lord called for witnesses, whose testimonies are shared to go forth with the book. The title page declares to the world that the book is for, “the convincing of the Jew and Gentile that JESUS is the CHRIST…” Three of the witnesses saw the gold plates shown them by the Angel Moroni and heard the voice of God declaring the plates, “have been translated by the gift and power of God.” Eight other witnesses saw and handled the plates.
NEW INSIGHTS TO CONSIDER
Along with enjoying the messages of the April 2021 General Conference for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I was also introduced to an apparent translation of part of the sealed portion of the Book of Mormon. I suggest you to apply the principles shared above and to consider this Second Invitation. This information is available as a 156 page PDF file, which can be downloaded for your consideration. Is it a fulfillment of prophecy? I am reading it now and would love your feedback.
It appears to be written to prepare a Zion people from other ancient writings of Moses, Enoch, Mormon, Moroni, Zenos, and the Three Nephites. I am examining it against God’s word, and suggest you do the same so that we are not deceived.
This information is so exciting if this truly is a fulfillment of prophecy in preparation for the Lord’s coming. It uses the Adamic phrases, I have shared previously on this site, of which there are 1,800 such phrases in our current scriptures proving God’s word.
The translation was done with seer stones by Mauricio Berger from part of the sealed portion of the gold plates of Mormon into Portuguese and into English, yet Mauricio doesn’t speak English. He describes Moroni giving him the plates and similar to the Book of Mormon, there were three special witnesses along with eight witnesses of these transcendent events.
John Pratt, who is considered to be probably the best Hebrew, Enoch calendar expert in the world, and who is a friend I know, has also been shown the gold plates. John determined the date of the First Vision of the Prophet Joseph Smith from Enoch’s writings and calendar, when the Father and the Son visited him on the 26th of March 1820 to open the Dispensation of the Gospel for the Fullness of Times.
We live in interesting times and much is being revealed. Are we ready? Let us look to God and live (Alma 37:47) and treasure up His WORD that we are not deceived.
