SORT BY Relevancy
Discussion of how the One Mighty and Strong obtained the apostleship through the 70s. Also the interpretation of Isaiah 28 found in Zion's Redemption, by Francis Michael Darter.
The Revelations of Jesus Christ and The Redemption of Zion.
Franklin Graham implored fervently to "invite Jesus into your heart". This phraseology is nowhere found in the Bible! This entrance might cause circulatory failure if this prayer was answered, since Jesus ascended into heaven with his resurrected physical body. Therefore such an entrance into a person would be fatal. The devil however is a spirit and will enter into those who pervert the right way of the Lord and offend God with their willful blindness.

20. The Gods who dwell in the Heaven from which our spirits came, are beings who have been redeemed from the grave in a world which existed before the foundations of this earth were laid. They and the Heavenly body which they now inhabit were once in a fallen state. Their terrestrial world was redeemed, and glorified. and made a Heaven...
21. These Gods, being redeemed From the grave with their wives, are immortal and eternal, and will die no more. But they and their wives will be supremely happy. All the endearing ties of conjugal love which existed in their bosoms, when terrestrial and Fallen beings, are now greatly increased and perfected which serve to swell their souls with feelings of rapturous delight, and unbounded love towards each other, and with joys that are everlasting. How beautiful--how interesting--how inexpressibly lovely will they appear in each others eyes! Full of virtue and goodness, knowledge and intelligence, affection and love they shine forth in all the brilliancy and glory of these Godlike attributes, inspiring each other, and all Heaven, with a fulness of Eternal joys.
But can several wives love one and the same man as their husband? Yes, if he treat them in a way to merit their confidence and love. There is no more difficulty in several women loving one husband than there is in several persons loving our Lord and Saviour. God is the Author of sexual or conjugal love, the same as He is of all other kinds of pure love; and if He unites several women to one man in the sacred bonds of matrimony, it is their duty to cultivate and increase the heavenly principle of pure love to their husband, until they love him with all their hearts, even as they love God; and he should love them in return, even as he loves God. There is no evil in love; but there is much evil resulting from the want of love. The Seer; Orson Pratt
6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father...
The Covenant God Made with David:
16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.
17 According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.
(2 Samuel 7:16–17)
5 Ought ye not to know that the Lord God of Israel gave the kingdom over Israel to David for ever, even to him and to his sons by a covenant of salt? (2 Chronicles 13:5)
One Mighty and Strong direct descendant of David to order Zion, saith the Lord:
40 In addition to these, he (Moroni) quoted the eleventh chapter of Isaiah, saying that it was about to be fulfilled.
10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse (father of King David), which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.
7 And it shall come to pass that I, the Lord God, will send one mighty and strong, holding the scepter of power in his hand (Davidic Scepter)... to set in order the house of God, and to arrange by lot the inheritances of the saints whose names are found, and the names of their fathers, and of their children, enrolled in the book of the law of God;
6 Behold, thus saith the Lord, it is a descendant of Jesse, as well as of Joseph, unto whom rightly belongs the priesthood, and the keys of the kingdom, for an ensign, and for the gathering of my people in the last days.
In attempting to pass spread the Gospel by printing and givng out the Revelations, I became a target for police and was driven into the mountains to live, my rights to speak anywhere at all or even make a living not recognized by comfortable and happy church-going, flag-waving practioners of foolishness.
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.
24 But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.
25 Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.
26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
(New Testament | Luke 6:22–26)
Also Apostle Mark E. Petersen wrote a pamphlet called "Which Church is Right" in which he makes the point the Church must be the same in organization from the ancient one:
"There was no indication that such an organization ever would be changed, or that any part of it would become unnecessary...So the original organization of the Church, with its officers, ordinances and doctrines, was intended to continue unchanged until such a time as he explained to the Ephesians, as we all come to a unity of the faith, and reach perfection in Christ. The events following the ascension of the Savior also make it clear that the organization of the Church was intended to continue on." I showed how the Mormon Church has changed in the very point Mark Petersen used to illustrate this principle, namely filling vacancies in the Quorum of the Twelve.
Before my birth, my Father prayed a servant of the Lord be born to him. The Lord answered his prayer. Parents dedicated me when an infant also, but the day before I was born the Adversary tried to destroy me. A car plunged down a mountainside, my Grandmother was pinned under the car and was killed, my Mother was the only one of eight passengers not to be thrown out of the car and I was born the next day. Account of my first vision experience and then the Lord brought me to a certain knowledge of the Book of Mormon, delivered from a 3-pack-a-day smoking habit in an instant, baptism, and then audible voice speaking three times in the presence of soldiers at Ft. Sam Houston, and an angel casting a Green-Beret on his back to defend me as I was preaching, etc. Many other miraculous events explained in a continuous stream, receiving some four hundred revelations written, and many now published. Ordination to the Apostleship, cultural Mormons tried to destroy me when I presented two to the Priesthood, in a murderous rage. Casting out devils once, healing the sick, but so many afflictions, living in the Rocky Mountains in a tent for more than a decade, and finally being warned by the Lord to flee to Mexico, where I broadcast today. Lived to see the "Great division amongst the people" come to pass and the beginnings of the breakup of civil society currently in fulfillment of the revelations I received...
13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
11 He stretched out his hand over the sea, he shook the kingdoms: the Lord hath given a commandment against the merchant city, to destroy the strong holds thereof.
2 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.
(Doctrine and Covenants 132:12–14)
19 And the Lord ordained Noah after his own order, and commanded him that he should go forth and declare his Gospel unto the children of men, even as it was given unto Enoch.
20 And it came to pass that Noah called upon the children of men that they should repent; but they hearkened not unto his words;
21 And also, after that they had heard him, they came up before him, saying: Behold, we are the sons of God; have we not taken unto ourselves the daughters of men? And are we not eating and drinking, and marrying and giving in marriage? And our wives bear unto us children, and the same are mighty men, which are like unto men of old, men of great renown. And they hearkened not unto the words of Noah.
22 And God saw that the wickedness of men had become great in the earth; and every man was lifted up in the imagination of the thoughts of his heart, being only evil continually.
23 And it came to pass that Noah continued his preaching unto the people, saying: Hearken, and give heed unto my words;
24 Believe and repent of your sins and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, even as our fathers, and ye shall receive the Holy Ghost, that ye may have all things made manifest; and if ye do not this, the floods will come in upon you; nevertheless they hearkened not.
25 And it repented Noah, and his heart was pained that the Lord had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at the heart.
38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
