Book of Mormon Conference – The Three Gospels

The Firm Foundation sponsored the 28th International semi-annual Book of Mormon Evidence Conference on September 23 – 25th, 2021.  I have been privileged to address an audience for this semi-annual event and share my testimony for twelve of those fourteen years.

A Special Day

My presentation was given on September 25th,  which also happened to be my 85th birthday and the audience sang “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” to me.  In addition, several members of my family were in attendance, which made the day extra special, which is the best birthday present they could give me — to appreciate my exciting research.

My discourse was well attended and I received a wonderful response from the audience.  After the lecture, an individual from the audience asked if I would be willing to share my slides because of the abundance of material that was presented and I agreed.  (See Link at the Bottom of Post)

The Three Gospels

The title of my presentation was: “The Three Gospels and Preparation for the Lord’s Coming. “

1. The Gospel of the Good Earth –  Preparing our body, mind, and spirit.  Get out of the harmful modern foods and know what to eat to be the healthiest so that the “destroying angel will pass by.”

2) The Gospel of the Bible –  Preparing a people for the millennium. All who have faith in Jesus Christ and keep His commandments will make it into the millennium regardless of denomination.

3. The Gospel of the End-timesPreparing a Zion people. The fullness of the gospel will help bring about ZION to prepare us to meet the Bridegroom at His Coming.

  • These three “Gospels” are the most important blessings God has given and is giving in these last days in preparation for the return of His Beloved Son, and for His Kingdom to come on earth as it is in heaven (Matt. 6:10).
  • Those who integrate and internalize these three gospels will be the best prepared for His Glorious millennial reign.

It is my prayer for you that you may internalize and share these three gospels and be prepared for His glorious coming.  To this end have I done the research and prepared this important information to help you in your preparation for His Coming!  IT IS EXCITING TO KNOW HE IS COMING SOON.

P.S.  After my slide presentation, my publisher, Boyd Tuttle of Digital Legend,  sold all the copies of my book “It’s About Time” that he had in his booth.  You can buy it on the book’s website: and it is available as Kindle or in audio formats.

 

 

 

The Establishment of Zion

Guest Post – Chauncey C. Riddle

Thesis: Zion is established one person at a time. However, Zion is a group of persons, persons who have all traveled the same strait and narrow covenant path to having become like unto Christ Himself. The Holy Temple Ordinances are the engine for establishing Zion.

1. Personal Revelation

The absolute fundamental to become a Zion person is to know by the Holy Spirit that God lives and Jesus Christ is the Savior of all the inhabitants of this world. In other words, the beginning of becoming like Christ is to be personally founded on the rock of revelation. A person founded on that rock not only has had revelation but lives by it daily, thus being enabled to do the works of righteousness.

2. Baptism and Confirmation

The works of righteousness are ministering to one’s neighbors as Christ would if He were here. The ordinances necessary for gaining this foundation are baptism and confirmation.

GPS Moving Forward To Zion

My experience with GPS is a fascinating one.  I spent many man-years helping in the development of GPS http://itsabouttimebook.com/my-involvement-with-gps-development/ – working with Brad Parkinson, who I consider to be the father of GPS.   He was both a colonel in the Air Force, but also got his Ph.D. at Stanford University graduating in 1966, with a degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Colonel Parkinson and  his Air Force blue suiters came to our seminars in Boulder, CO, to learn how to best use atomic clocks.  Atomic clocks are the heart of GPS.  The signals from the satellite constellation  need to be synchronized to about a billionth of a second (a nanosecond) for GPS to meet its navigation goals.  In 2018 Brad received the IEEE Medal of Honor Award for his leadership in developing GPS.  I congratulated him at the time and offered him a copy of my book.  He said he already had a copy.

When I published by book www.ItsAboutTimeBook.com in 2014, part of it was a special letter to the GPS Headquarters folks suggesting four things that could help improve the system.  Ironically, I heard nothing back from them until last week (six years later).

IEEE Nomination

This recent interaction with them occurred because of a series of events in which the IEEE’s previous president, John Vig, recently nominated me to be an IEEE Fellow, and I needed five people to be part of the nomination process.  I asked Brad, and he agreed to do so.  This opened up an e-mail dialog coming back to my letter of six years ago.  They have a GPS Phase III planning meeting coming up and will consider what I have shared.  It will be interesting to see where it goes.

I love how the Lord is in the details of our lives, and He sees the end from the beginning.  Because of His infinite love, He orchestrates events to best help us find our way back to Him and helping us better live our lives and how to serve – never violating our free choice (agency).  He sees us from pre-mortal to where we can go in eternal realms of glory, and lovingly wants the best for us.  I see this GPS interaction event as just another means leading me to better ways to share His glorious gospel message.

The IEEE is the biggest technology institution, and has the largest scientific papers data base.  As our really good friend, BYU Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, Chauncey Riddle, taught me, technology has advanced society further along than has science – though most scientists would have you believe otherwise.  GPS, cell phones and the internet are three great examples of technology advancement.  With over 400 thousand members in 120 different countries, and with its 41 different societies the IEEE is the greatest organization on the planet for promoting technology.  I was pleased that Dr. Donley, representing the IEEE/UFFC, came to our home in November 2018 and spent two days recording my ORAL HISTORY, which they put up on their web site, and gave me opportunity to share my testimony.

This Is My Joy

In those six years, I have overcome some major health challenges: quadruple by-pass open heart surgery, three strokes, serious blood clots in my legs and lungs.  But in that time, I have enjoyed miraculous healings and learned some extremely important lessons from the Lord about who I am and how I can best serve His children.  “This is my joy.” (Alma 26:37; 29:9) Indeed, these challenges have been a “trial of my faith,” (Ether 12:6-7) but it is in that process we grow closer to Him.  As we use our time and talents with an eye single to His glory, joy will come to our souls.  The above is case in point for me.  And know that the Lord’s healings in my life have me back on my mountain bike, and I rode to the Post several times last week in the snow!

We live in the most exciting time in history.  GPS will continue to improve its timing, navigation and position accuracy, but know there is a better navigator and that is the Lord. We may not know in detail what the future holds, but we know who holds the future, and to be in step with Him is the greatest opportunity of our existence.  We know a Zion (the pure in heart) society is coming that the Bride may meet the Bridegroom in great rejoicing, and the exciting thing is we can be part of it if we will truly come unto Him.  He will navigate us HOME!

What is an Ideal Society?

An ideal society is promised, and soon, which is exciting.  But what is it?  What can we do to best prepare to be part of it and to help it come forth?

Look at the definition of a society; it is, “the aggregate of people living together in a more or less ordered community.”  Presently, our society seems to be positioned in the “less” category” as it appears to be in a state of disruption, confusion, and conflict. The conflict appears to center around individualism (priority given to the individual) and collectivism (priority given to the group or the state.)

Also, far from ideal, Americans are becoming less healthy as a nation in comparison to others (we are now ranked 38th); yet, our health-care costs are the highest per capita of any in the world, which is a massive contradiction with a message for us if we will pay attention.

Who Sets the Standard?
