The Holy Order of God, the Priesthood after the Order of Melchizdek
... and I would that ye should remember that the Lord God ordained priests (who were married), after his holy order, which was after the order of his Son, to teach these things unto the people.
2 And those priests were ordained after the order of his Son, in a manner that thereby the people might know in what manner to look forward to his Son for redemption.
3 And this is the manner after which they were ordained—being called and prepared from the foundation of the world according to the foreknowledge of God, on account of their exceeding faith and good works; in the first place being left to choose good or evil; therefore they having chosen good, and exercising exceedingly great faith, are called with a holy calling, yea, with that holy calling which was prepared with, and according to, a preparatory redemption for such.
5 Or in fine, in the first place they were on the same standing with their brethren; thus this holy calling being prepared from the foundation of the world for such as would not harden their hearts, being in and through the atonement of the Only Begotten Son, who was prepared—
6 And thus being called by this holy calling,AND ORDAINED (by the laying on of the hands of one who has authority as Peter, James and John) unto the high priesthood of the holy order of God, to teach his commandments unto the children of men, that they also might enter into his rest—
7 This high priesthood being after the order of his Son, which order was from the foundation of the world; or in other words, being without beginning of days or end of years, being prepared from eternity to all eternity, according to his foreknowledge of all things—
9 Thus they become high priests forever, after the order of the Son...
Some time after leaving the Church, Oliver Cowdery, who had studied law, became prosecuting attorney in one of the counties of the state of Michigan. During the course of a murder trial the attorney for the defendant challenged Oliver Cowdery in the following words:
"May it please the court, and gentlemen of the jury, I challenge Mr. Cowdery, since he seems to know so much about the poor defendant, to tell us something about his connection with Joe Smith, and the digging out of the hill of the Mormon Bible, and how Mr. Cowdery helped Joe Smith to defraud the American people out of a whole lot of money selling the Mormon Bible and telling them that an angel appeared to them from heaven, dressed in white clothes."
“Finally, Oliver Cowdery arose calm as a summer morning. I was within three feet of him. There was no hesitation, no fear, no anger in his voice, as he said: 'May it please the court, and gentlemen of the jury, my brother attorney on the other side has charged me with connection with Joseph Smith and the golden Bible. The responsibility has been placed upon me, and I cannot escape reply. Before God and man I dare not deny what I have said, and what my testimony contains as written and printed on the front page of the Book of Mormon. May it please your honor and gentlemen of the jury, this I say, I saw the angel and heard his voice-how can I deny it? It happened in the daytime when the sun was shining bright in the firmament; not in the night when I was asleep. That glorious messenger from heaven, dressed in white, standing above the ground, in a glory I have never seen anything to compare with, the sun insignificant in comparison, and this personage told us if we denied that testimony there is no forgiveness in this life nor in the world to come. Now, how can I deny it-I dare not; I will not!” (As related by former Juvenile Court Judge C. M. Nielsen of Murray, Utah)

The Holy Order of God Before the Flood & Who Was Melchizedek?
In the new creation Noah and Shem formed a theocratic government, on the ruins of which Nimrod, a descendant of Ham, formed an aristocratic government, which is the first head of the beast that came out of the sea with seven heads and ten horns, referred to in Rev. 13.
"And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar"Gen. to: 8-12.
"That position of the earth upon which the City of Enoch was built, which was located where now flows the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, after being separated from the earth, caused such changes to take place, both in the position occupied by the land and the sea, with the changes wrought by the great earthquake which took place at the time of the flood, that instead of being in a position floating over the spot from whence it was taken, was in the days of Nimrod observed to be a few miles above that portion of the earth called the East Plains of Shinar. This discovery being made, the Devil put it into the hearts of Nimrod and his people to unite this city again with the earth.
The Book of Mormon page 446 verse 28, says: 'And also it is that same being who put it into the hearts of the people to build a tower sufficiently high to get to heaven.' Hence the building of the tower, and the reason for selecting the desolate and sandy East Plains of Shinar. Here also were immense stratas of clay from which bricks were manu¬factured to build this immense structure. They called the land and city floating over them Heaven, the place where the Gods dwelt. The Book of Mor¬mon, in referring to this city, calls it the Holy Sanc¬tuary of the Lord which should come down out of heaven. "—Prophetic History page 3 .
OReilly Exposed by Book of Mormon: Doctrine of Anti-Christ
God hath lead & planted branches broken off from the main trunk and planted them here, one just after the flood, and the other of the tribe of Manneseh of the House of Israel circa 600 BC, here in the promised land, choice above all other lands. These were destroyed when they brought forth bad fruit, hewn down and cast into the fire by the Lord of the Vineyard, saith my God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
8 And he had sworn in his wrath unto the brother of Jared, that whoso should possess this land of promise, from that time henceforth and forever, should serve him, the true and only God, or they should be swept off when the fulness of his wrath should come upon them.
9 And now, we can behold the decrees of God concerning this land, that it is a land of promise; and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall serve God, or they shall be swept off when the fulness of his wrath shall come upon them. And the fulness of his wrath cometh upon them when they are ripened in iniquity.
10 For behold, this is a land which is choice above all other lands; wherefore he that doth possess it shall serve God or shall be swept off; for it is the everlasting decree of God. And it is not until the fulness of iniquity among the children of the land, that they are swept off.
11 And this cometh unto you, O ye Gentiles, that ye may know the decrees of God—that ye may repent, and not continue in your iniquities until the fulness come, that ye may not bring down the fulness of the wrath of God upon you as the inhabitants of the land have hitherto done.
12 Behold, this is a choice land, and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage, and from captivity, and from all other nations under heaven, if they will but serve the God of the land, who is Jesus Christ, who hath been manifested by the things which we have written. Ether 2:8–12
Theology first, then music.
Quotations from Martin Luther:
“Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it
is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us.” ? Martin
“Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.”
? Martin Luther
“Next to the Word of God, music deserves the highest praise. The gift of language combined with the gift of song was given to man that he should proclaim the Word of God through Music.” ? Martin Luther
“Music is the art of the prophets and the gift of God.” ? Martin Luther
“My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary.” ? Martin Luther
“The devil, the originator of sorrowful anxieties and restless troubles, flees before the sound of music almost as much as before the Word of God….Music is a gift and grace of God, not an invention of men. Thus it drives out the devil and makes people cheerful. Then one forgets all wrath, impurity, and other devices.” ? Martin Luther
“A person who…does not regard music as a marvelous creation of God, must be a clodhopper indeed and does not deserve to be called a human being; he should be permitted to hear nothing but the braying of asses and the grunting of hogs.” ? Martin Luther
Before the Diet of Worms:
"Unless I am convinced by Scripture and plain reason - I do not accept the authority of the popes and councils, for they have contradicted each other - my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not recant anything for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. God help me. Amen."
