Another Gladden Bishop?

Am I, as judged by Van Hale another Gladden Bishop, a foolish apostate in the days of Joseph and Brigham or am I the one prophesied to come?  Over the decades of my experience with men and  the visions and revelations of the Lord beginning with my first vision either I am the biggest liar, or a man of shattered understanding, or it is true.  This was also the issue in the days of Joseph, "Could any man have written this book?' So it is with myself.  Mormons, after reading The Revelations of Jesus Christ, especially Section 2, must ask themselves, "Could any man have written this?' and if they are acquainted with scripture and the voice of the Lord, must conclude "it is true!"

But to address the objection raised by Mr. Hale, which is really nothing more than bigotry, he used this quote from Joseph Smith:  "That man who rises up to condemn others, finding fault with the Church, saying that they are out of the way, while he himself is righteous, then know assuredly, that that man is in the high road to apostasy; and if he does not repent, will apostatize, as God lives." Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p.156

Jesus condemned the Jews by calling them "a generation of vipers".  Does that mean he was on the high road to apostasy as Mr. Hale claims?  Was Isaiah on the high road when he said in Ch 28 "the priest and the prophet are out of the way" in connection with the advent of the One Mighty and Strong, was he an apostate?  All of the prophets of Israel who have been critical of corruption within the Church, were always considered apostates by those who stoned and crucified them!  Therefore Mr. Hale is also guilty of their crimes, for he has fostered the vilest slander of myself, merely for advocating The Revelations of Jesus Christ.  Besides the character of the Church is changed from the days of Joseph and Brigham.
