SORT BY Relevancy
The Seventies are called and set apart to be swift messengers to the nations of the earth having power to introduce the gospel wherever they may be sent, holding the keys of this kingdom...’’ Orson Pratt, Nauvoo Period Record, Book B, p. 31.
“What ordination should a man receive to possess all the keys and powers of the Holy Priesthood that were delivered to the sons of Adam? He should be ordained an Apostle of Jesus Christ. That office puts him in possession of every key, every power, every authority, communication, benefit, blessing, glory, and kingdom that was ever revealed to man. That pertains to the office of an Apostle of Jesus Christ....The Seventies possess the same power and authority; they hold the keys of establishing, building up, regulating, ordaining, and setting in order the kingdom of God in all its perfections upon the earth. We have a Quorum of High Priests, and there are a great many of them. They are a local body-they tarry at home...” (Brigham Young; Journal of Discourses, 26 vols., 9:, p.88)
"He stated that the Seventies are ordained apostles, and when they go forth into the ministry they are sent with power to build up the kingdom in all the world and consequently have power to ordain High Priests and also to ordain and organize a High Council." Discourse of Brigham Young; History of Brigham Young Manuscript; Dec 14, 1845.
3 Matthias, also, who was numbered with the apostles in the place of Judas, and the one who was honored by being made a candidate with him, are like-wise said to have been deemed worthy of the same calling with the seventy (showing the correct order of succession). Eusebius circa 280 AD
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek: Matthew 6:31 - 32 When God spoke from heaven to Joseph Smith, the people were bound down by priestcraft, doctorcraft, kingcraft, and lawyercraft, the four grand crafts that uphold Satan's kingdom. Brigham Young (Des. News, July 12, 1863) Brother Joseph Smith gave us the word of the Lord; it was simply this: "Never do another day's work to build up a Gentile city; never lay out another dollar while you live, to advance the world in its present state; it is full of wickedness and violence; no regard is paid to the prophets, no the prophecyings of the prophets, nor to Jesus nor his sayings, nor the word of the Lord that was given anciently, nor to that given in our day. They have gone astray, and they are building up themselves, and they are promoting sin and iniquity upon the earth; and," said he, "it is the word and commandment of the Lord to his servants that they shall never do another day's work, nor spend another dollar to build up a Gentile city or nation." (Journal of Discourses, 26 vols., 11:, p.295)
The Gospel of salvation is perfectly calculated to cause division. It strikes at the root of the very existence of mankind in their wickedness, evil designs, passions, and wicked calculations. There is no evil among the human family, but at the foundation of which it strikes effectually, and comes in contact with every evil passion that rises in the heart of man. It is opposed to every evil practice of men, and consequently it disturbs them in the wicked courses they are pursuing. (JD, 26 vols., 1:, p.235)
The ancient Saints were, and the Saints of latter days have been, driven from pillar to post, their name a hiss and a by-word, and their character traduced to the lowest degree. I will appeal to men in this congregation, who have lived for years in the society of the world, who are judges, magistrates, sheriffs, merchants, mechanics, and farmers, if anything was ever alleged against their character until they joined the Latter-day Saints. But where are your characters now in the world? Your former friends now have found out that you always were miserable creatures, they now declare they never had any confidence in you, for you always were enthusiastic beings, and knew not what you were doing. They always believed you would prove yourselves dishonest, etc. This has been the character given to the Saints by the world in all ages. Brigham Young, Discourses of Brigham Young
22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you [from their company], and shall reproach [you], and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.
23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward [is] great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets. Luke 6:22-23,26
100 These are they who say they are some of one and some of another--some of Christ and some of John, and some of Moses, and some of Elias, and some of Esaias, and some of Isaiah, and some of Enoch (some of Warren Jeffs, some of Lorin Wooley, some of Monson, etc);
101 But received not the gospel, neither the testimony of Jesus, neither the prophets, neither the everlasting covenant.
Mormon fundamentalists have gone rogue, building themselves up, with priestcraft, competing with and fighting against Zion, saith the Lord.
"Lorin Woolley had instructed the Council of Friends that none of them were to organize, colonize, or to hold regular meetings. 1 He said that they were not to organize wards and stakes, etc., 2 for this was the work of the One Mighty and Strong,3 ... 4 The only thing they were authorized to do was to 'keep plural marriage alive,' 5" Keys of the Priesthood, Ilus; Lynn L. and Stephen L. Bishop
"John (Y. Barlow), that is neither your mission nor my mission. That is the mission of the One Mighty and Strong. Our mission is simply to keep plural marriage alive." Lorin Wooley
22 Wherefore, be subject to the powers that be, until he reigns whose right it is to reign, and subdues all enemies under his feet.
A secret combination will overthrow United States, and has gained expertise in overthrowing nation states already in Central America, have now gained free access through a loophole and are marching northward to conquer the land via tendrels spreading in the interior of the country. The invasion has been underway for years, but has been fulminated lately in the orchestration of this conquest by these gangs, cartels or combinations by exploiting a vulnerability in the law using children as the spearpoint bought with money and coercion. MS13 will be able to buy anything they want and corrupt institutions so that half the population will divide themselves from the rest and be under their banner and half will remain true to the Constitution, but the schism will be fatal, ultimately resulting in a tremendous violence and destruction when the time comes. Zion, however will be wrought out upon the face of the land and will be a city of refuge for the righteous to flee unto it, saith the Lord.
23 Wherefore, O ye Gentiles, it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you, that thereby ye may repent of your sins, and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you, which are built up to get power and gain--and the work, yea, even the work of destruction come upon you, yea, even the sword of the justice of the Eternal God shall fall upon you, to your overthrow and destruction if ye shall suffer these things to be.
24 Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you; or wo be unto it, because of the blood of them who have been slain; for they cry from the dust for vengeance upon it, and also upon those who built it up.
The earth to become a Celestial body, saith the Lord.
The earth is a living entity, and also has a spirit. The spirits of the departed go to the spirit of the earth to await the resurrection, saith the Lord. The earth will also die and be resurrected also to a state of "glass and fire" which is a giant urim and thummim . The earth was baptized by total immersion and thus cleansed from all iniquity. This is the law of the Celestial Kingdom and all bodies Celetial must obey this law, saith the Lord to inherit a place on the resurrected earth forever and ever. The earth must also be baptized, not ony by water, through which it has already passed, but must be baptized with fire, which is yet to happen, which aso is the law pertaining to the Celestial Kingdom, saith the Lord. The earth will then die and be resurrected to an immortal state, saith the Lord:
7 But they reside in the presence of God, on a globe like a sea of glass and fire, where all things for their glory are manifest, past, present, and future, and are continually before the Lord. 8 The place where God resides is a great Urim and Thummim.
9 This earth, in its sanctified and immortal state, will be made like unto crystal and will be a Urim and Thummim to the inhabitants who dwell thereon, whereby all things pertaining to an inferior kingdom, or all kingdoms of a lower order, will be manifest to those who dwell on it; and this earth will be Christ's. (D&C 130:7-9)
1 Q. What is the sea of glass spoken of by John, 4th chapter, and 6th verse of the Revelation? A. It is the earth, in its sanctified, immortal, and eternal state. (D&C 77:1) 7 But they reside in the presence of God, on a globe like a sea of glass and fire, where all things for their glory are manifest, past, present, and future, and are continually before the Lord. (D&C 130:7)
As I come on this program, I never know what I will talk about, but I routinely experience the phenomenae of having my mouth filled as it were, according to the following promise:
85 Neither take ye thought beforehand what ye shall say; but treasure up in your minds continually the words of life, and it shall be given you in the very hour that portion that shall be meted unto every man.
The best men bring forth the best works. The man who tells you words of life is the man who can save you. I warn you against all evil characters who sin against the Holy Ghost; for there is no redemption for them in this world nor in the world to come.
(Joseph Smith, Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, selected and arranged by Joseph Fielding Smith, p.358)
THE REVELATIONS OF JESUS CHRIST
Revelation Received August8,1989,Provo, Utah on the Reason of the Separation, that the Seventy are Not to Be High Priests.
The reason, saith the Lord, that the Seventy are to be totally segregated from High Priests is to maintain the system of checks and balances in the Kingdom of God, that the keys belong to the Seventies. 2 And though the High Priests may mourn over it, it is just so, and any man, chosen by the Lord, (not just a select corporate clique of businessmen and high priests, such as those who govern the Mormon Church today) may attain to the Apostleship with all the keys of the Kingdom of God encompassed within this ordination, and thus provide a check and a safeguard against this elitism, and the rich and powerful politically taking over the Church as the High Priests think they have done today.
‘‘There is authority and there are degrees of authority, and there is a difference in degrees, callings and authority of the Priesthood. If there should be one apostle left on the earth, he can regulate and set in order the whole of the church and kingdom of God. If there is one seventy left he could do so. This order is not my getting up, it is the Lord’s doings; high priests my mourn over it, the Lord has said it, and I have no right to say it is not so." Brigham Young
12 I am the Lord thy God; and I give unto you this commandment--that no man shall come unto the Father but by me or by my word, which is my law, saith the Lord.
13 And everything that is in the world, whether it be ordained of men, by thrones, or principalities, or powers, or things of name, whatsoever they may be, that are not by me or by my word, saith the Lord, shall be thrown down, and shall not remain after men are dead, neither in nor after the resurrection, saith the Lord your God.
14 For whatsoever things remain are by me; and whatsoever things are not by me shall be shaken and destroyed.
So, go ahead and fight against Zion with your false traditions, vagaries and foolish notions, fools and blind! Can you do anything against me more than they did to Jesus? Besides, my glory in the world to come is greater for enduring your frowns, bigotry and your stone walls.
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before [it hated] you.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.
22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
25 But [this cometh to pass], that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
