The 7th Thousand Years

Jesus was crucified in the Meridian of Time on Nissan 14, 1 April 33 AD; therefore the 5th thousand years began in 33 AD, the 6th thousand years in 1,033 AD and the 7th thousand years will begin in 2,034 AD.

(JST Hebrews 9:26) 26 … but now once in the meridian of time hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

(The Dawn of Earth’s Great Millennium by Bonnie Gaunt) The parallel to His birth brought us to the Autumn 1999. The parallel to His death will bring us to the Spring of 2033. This interim period of 33 ½ years is happening all around us.

In the beginning of the 7th thousand years the 7 Angels sound their trumps.

(D&C 77:12) 12 A. … even so, in the beginning of the seventh thousand years will the Lord God sanctify the earth, and complete the salvation of man, and judge all things, and shall redeem all things, except that which he hath not put into his power, when he shall have sealed all things, unto the end of all things; and the sounding of the trumpets of the seven angels are the preparing and finishing of his work, in the beginning of the seventh thousand years—the preparing of the way before the time of his coming.

The Earth was sanctified at the beginning of the earth and again at the end of the earth.

image1.jpeg(Genesis 2:3) 3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

Christ coming appears as a thief in the night only to those who are not watching.

(Revelation 3:3) 3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

(1 Thessalonians 5:1 – 4) 1 BUT of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. … 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

(2 Peter 3:10) 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

No man knows when Christ will return.

(D&C 49:6 – 7) 6 And they have done unto the Son of Man even as they listed; and he has taken his power on the right hand of his glory, and now reigneth in the heavens, and will reign till he descends on the earth to put all enemies under his feet, which time is nigh at hand—7 I, the Lord God, have spoken it; but the hour and the day no man knoweth, neither the angels in heaven, nor shall they know until he comes.

The Sign of the Son of Man: the 2nd time

After the Half Hour of Silence is the 2nd appearance of the Sign of the Son of Man.

image2.jpeg(D&C 88:95 – 96) 95 And there shall be silence in heaven for the space of half an hour; and immediately after shall the curtain of heaven be unfolded, as a scroll is unfolded after it is rolled up, and the face of the Lord shall be unveiled;

(Isaiah 24:19 – 20) 19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. 20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.

The sign of the Son of Man:

(Isaiah 34:4) 4 … all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.

(Revelation 11:19) 19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and (at Armageddon) there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

(JST Psalms 24:8) 8 And he will roll away the heavens; and will come down to redeem his people; to make you an everlasting name; to establish you upon his everlasting rock.

(JS-Matthew 1:36) 36 … after the tribulation of those days, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken, then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven,

(Nauvoo Discourses, Burgess Notebook, boap.org) He says, then shall they see the Sign of the coming of the Son of Man in the clouds of Heaven. How are we to see it? Answer. As the lighting up of the morning or the dawning of the morning cometh from the east and shineth unto the west – So also is the coming of the Son of Man. … Shall the Saints understand it, Oh yes. Paul says so. Shall the wicked understand? Oh no, they attribute it to a natural cause. They will probably suppose it is two great comets coming in contact with each other.

There are five verses that refer to the Sun, Moon and Stars after the Half Hour of Silence. 

(JS-Matthew 1:33) 33 And immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

(Joel 3:15) 15 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.

(Isaiah 24:23) 23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed

(D&C 34: 9) 9 But before that great day shall come, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon be turned into blood; and the stars shall refuse their shining, and some shall fall,

(D&C 29:14) 14 But, behold, I say unto you that before this great day shall come the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall be turned into blood, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and there shall be greater signs in heaven above and in the earth beneath;

Comparison of the two occurrences

The 1st occurrence is at the opening of the 6th Seal; the 2nd is after the Half Hour of Silence. There is a 3rd occurrence when the earth is transfigured (Pg 201, D&C 101:23) and the veil of the temple of God is removed and all mankind sees God. The heavens being opened like a scroll and the face of God revealed as described in Revelation 6 is the same as the great sign of D&C 88.

 The 1st Sign of the Son of Man

 Revelation 6:14-16 = 6th Seal

 (Revelation 6:12 – 16) 12  And I beheld

 when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo,

 there was a great earthquake; and the sun

 became black as sackcloth of hair, and the

 moon became as blood; 13 And the Stars

 fell unto the earth … 14 And the heaven

 departed as a scroll when it is rolled

 together; and every mountain and island

 were moved out of their places. 15 And the

 kings of the earth, and the great men, and the

 rich men, and the chief captains, and the

 mighty men, and every bondman, and every

 free man, hid themselves in the dens and in

 the rocks of the mountains; 16 And said to

 the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and

 hide us from the face of him that sitteth

 on the throne, and from the wrath of the

 Lamb:

 The 1st Sign of the Son of Man

 D&C 88:93 =  6th Seal

 (D&C 88:87) 87 For not many days hence

 and the earth shall tremble and reel to and

 fro as a drunken man; and the sun shall hide

 his face, and shall refuse to give light; and

 the moon shall be bathed in blood; and the

 stars shall become exceedingly angry, and

 shall cast themselves down as a fig that

 falleth from off a fig–tree.

 (D&C 88:93) 93 And immediately there 

 shall appear a great sign in heaven, and

 all people shall see it together.

The same signs take place a 2nd time after the Half Hour of Silence at the beginning of the 7th Thousand Years as recorded in Revelation 8 and D&C 88. What is tricky about this is that the wording is in reverse order of the wording of the 1st time making it confusing. The beginning of the 7th Thousand Years is not the same as the Opening of the 7th Seal.

 The 2nd Sign of the Son of Man

 Revelation 8:1-2

 7th Seal begins the half hour of silence

 (Revelation 8:1 – 2) 1 AND when he had 

 opened the seventh seal, there was silence

 in heaven about the space of half an hour.

 7th Thousand Years begins

 2 And I saw the seven angels which stood 

 before God; 3 And another angel came and

 stood at …. The golden altar which was

 before the throne.

 The 2nd Sign of the Son of Man

 D&C 88:95

 7th Seal begins the half hour of silence

 (D&C 88:95) 95 And there shall be

 silence  in heaven for the space of half an

 hour;

 7th Thousand Years begins

 and immediately after shall the curtain of 

 heaven be unfolded, as a scroll is unfolded

 after it is rolled up, and the face of the 

 Lord shall be unveiled;

Revelation 6:14 at the opening of the 6th Seal describes heaven being rolled as a scroll the same description as D&C 88:95 after the opening of the 7th Seal. Then Revelation 6:16 in the 6th Seal uses the same face of the Lord as D&C 88:95 in the 7th Seal. Like I said it’s tricky.

The 1st Sign of the Son of Man

Revelation 6:14-16 = 6th Seal

(Revelation 6:14 – 16) 14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

The 2nd Sign of the Son of Man

D&C 88:95 = 7th seal because of the half hour of silence

(D&C 88:95) 95 And there shall be silence in heaven for the space of half an hourand immediately after shall the curtain of heaven be unfolded, as a scroll is unfolded after it is rolled up,

 

 

 

 

7th Thousand Years begins

and the face of the Lord shall be unveiled;

Finally, compare the opening of the 6th Seal of Revelation 6 and its statement of the Sun, Moon, and Star phenomenon with JS-Matthew and the same Phenomenon in the 7th Seal after the tribulation of those days. This is the same sign of the Son of Man that occurs twice – once in the Opening of the 6th Seal and once in the Opening of the 7th Seal.

 The 1st Sign of the Son of Man

 Opening of the 6th Seal

 (Revelation 6:12 – 16) 12 And I beheld when

 he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there

 was a great earthquake; and the sun

 became black as sackcloth of hair, and the

 moon became as blood; 13 And the stars

 of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig

 tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is

 shaken of a mighty wind.

 14 And the heaven departed as a scroll 

 when it is rolled together; and every

 mountain and island were moved out of their

 places.

 16  And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall

 on us, and hide us from the face of him

 that sitteth on the throne, and from the

 wrath of the Lamb:

The 2nd Sign of the Son of Man

7th Seal = after the tribulation of those days

 (JS-Matthew 1:33, 36) 33 And immediately

 after the tribulation of those daysthe 

 sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall

 not give her light, and the stars shall fall

 from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall

 be shaken.

 ….36 And, as I said before, after the

 tribulation of those days, and the powers

 of the heavens shall be shakenthen shall

 appear the sign of the Son of Man in

 heaven.

7 Angels Prepare to Sound their Trumps

Voices, Thunderings, Lightnings, and Earthquakes

After the ½ Hour of Silence the 7 Angels that had the golden vials were given 7 trumps to sound.

(Revelation 8:1 – 2) 1 AND when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. 2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.

(Revelation 8:6) 6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

Just before the 1st angel sounds his trump, the Battle of Armageddon is announced by an Angel casting a censer filled with fire to the earth which creates voices, thunderings, and lightnings and a great earthquake. This exciting display originates from the temple of God in heaven.

(Revelation 4:5) 5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices:

image3.jpeg(Revelation 8:3 – 5) 3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. … 5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and (at Armageddon) there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

There are two other verses that refer to the voices, thunderings, and lightnings which heralds the beginning of the Battle at Kirtland known as Armageddon.

(Revelation 16:16 – 18) 16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. 17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings;

(Revelation 11:19) 19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and (at Armageddon) there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings,

This is fascinating: here the Lord also uses the earth reeling to and fro like a drunken man a second time, but this earthquake takes place when the 1st Angel sounds his trump.

(D&C 49:23) 23 Wherefore, be not deceived, but continue in steadfastness, looking forth for the heavens to be shaken, and the earth to tremble and to reel to and fro as a drunken man, and for the valleys to be exalted, and for the mountains to be made low, and for the rough places to become smooth—and all this when the angel shall sound his trumpet.

The Coming of Christ
1st Trump: 144,000 Celestials meet Christ
The Rapture of the Elect

There are ample scriptures that describe the saints coming forth from the grave, and all the righteous will meet the Lord and the Angels in the air. The 1st Trump will sound on Rosh Hashanah in 2033. I think that the 1st Angel is Seth because he was a perfect man and the exact image of his father Adam (D&C 107:43).

(D&C 88:96 – 98) 96 And the saints that are upon the earth, who are alive, shall be quickened and be caught up to meet him. 97 And they who have slept in their graves shall come forth, for their graves shall be opened; and they also shall be caught up to meet him in the midst of the pillar of heaven — 98 They are Christ’s, the first fruits, they who shall descend with him first, and they who are on the earth and in their graves, who are first caught up to meet him; and all this by the voice of the sounding of the (1st) trump of the angel of God.

image4.gif(1 Thessalonians 4:15 – 17) 15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the (1st) trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

(D&C 45:45) 45 But before the arm of the Lord shall fall, an (the 1st) angel shall sound his trump and the saints that have slept shall come forth to meet me in the cloud.

image5.jpeg(D&C 109:75) 75 That when the (1st) trump shall sound for the dead, we shall be caught up in the cloud to meet thee, that we may ever be with the Lord;

(D&C 133:56) 56 And the graves of the saints shall be opened; and they shall come forth and stand on the right hand of the Lamb, when he shall stand upon Mount Zion, and upon the holy city, the New Jerusalem; and they shall sing the song of the Lamb, day and night forever and ever.

(JS-Matthew 1:37) 37 And whoso treasureth up my word, shall not be deceived, for the Son of Man shall come, and he shall send his angels before him with the great sound of a (1st) trumpet, and they shall gather together the remainder of his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

(Words of Joseph Smith Pg 198) I would say that God hath shown unto me a vision of the resurrection of the dead & saw the graves open and the saints as they arose took each other by the hand even before they got open while setting up & great Joy & glory rested upon them.

This is when the elect are quickened by a portion of the celestial glory

(D&C 88:27 – 29) 27 For notwithstanding they die, they also shall rise again, a spiritual body. 28 They who are of a celestial spirit shall receive the same body which was a natural body; even ye shall receive your bodies, and your glory shall be that glory by which your bodies are quickened. 29 Ye who are quickened by a portion of the celestial glory shall then receive of the same, even a fulness.

(1 Corinthians 15:51 – 52) 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

(D&C 43:32) 32 And he that liveth in righteousness shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye, and the earth shall pass away so as by fire.

(Teachings Pg 199) All will be raised by the power of God, having spirit in their bodies, and not blood.

Hail, Fire and Blood

Revelation 8 describes the 1st Trump from the perspective of those on earth and other scriptures supports these events.

(Revelation 8:7) 7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

image6.jpeg(D&C 45:39 – 41) 39 And it shall come to pass that he that feareth me shall be looking forth for the great day of the Lord to come, even for the signs of the coming of the Son of Man. 40 And they shall see signs and wonders, for they shall be shown forth in the heavens above, and in the earth beneath. 41 And they shall behold blood, and fire, and vapors of smoke.

(Joel 2:30 – 31) 30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. 31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.

The Book of Mormon and D&C 29 both support the events of the 1st Trump.

(1 Nephi 22:17 – 18) 17 Wherefore, he will preserve the righteous by his power, even if it so be that the fulness of his wrath must come, and the righteous be preserved, even unto the destruction of their enemies by fire. Wherefore, the righteous need not fear; for thus saith the prophet, they shall be saved, even if it so be as by fire. 18 Behold, my brethren, I say unto you, that these things must shortly come; yea, even blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke must come; and it must needs be upon the face of this earth; and it cometh unto men according to the flesh if it so be that they will harden their hearts against the Holy One of Israel.

(D&C 29:16) 16 And there shall be a great hailstorm sent forth to destroy the crops of the earth.

Christ comes to the New Jerusalem

Christ first comes to the New Jerusalem, then to save the Jews at Kirtland.

(Acts 1:11) 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
image7.jpeg

(D&C 133:20 – 21) 20 For behold, he shall stand upon the mount of Olivet, and upon the mighty ocean, even the great deep, and upon the islands of the sea, and upon the land of Zion. 21 And he shall utter his voice out of Zion, and he shall speak from Jerusalem, and his voice shall be heard among all people;

(D&C 133:1 – 2) 1 HEARKEN, O ye people of my church, saith the Lord your God, and hear the word of the Lord concerning you — 2 The Lord who shall suddenly come to his temple; the Lord who shall come down upon the world with a curse to judgment; yea, upon all the nations that forget God, and upon all the ungodly among you.

The Return of the City of Enoch

Enoch and his city will return to the earth with the Savior in the clouds of heaven. The great City of Enoch is described as Zion from above, whose inhabitants are the holy angels, the general assembly and church of the 1st born. This is before he is seen in red garments to save the Jews at Kirtland.

(JST | Genesis 9:21 – 23) 21 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant, which I made unto thy father Enoch; that, when men should keep all my commandments, Zion should again come on the earth, the city of Enoch which I have caught up unto myself. 22 And this is mine everlasting covenant, that when thy posterity shall embrace the truth, and look upward, then shall Zion look downward, and all the heavens shall shake with gladness, and the earth shall tremble with joy; 23 And the general assembly of the church of the firstborn shall come down out of heaven, and possess the earth, and shall have place until the end come. And this is mine everlasting covenant, which I made with thy father Enoch.

image8.jpeg(D&C 45:44) 44 And then they shall look for me, and, behold, I will come; and they shall see me in the clouds of heaven, clothed with power and great glory; with all the holy angels; and he that watches not for me shall be cut off.

(JS-Matthew 1:1) 1 FOR I say unto you, that ye shall not see me henceforth and know that I am he of whom it is written by the prophets, until ye shall say: Blessed is he who cometh in the name of the Lord, in the clouds of heaven, and all the holy angels with him. Then understood his disciples that he should come again on the earth, after that he was glorified and crowned on the right hand of God.

(D&C 84:100) 100 The Lord hath redeemed his people; And Satan is bound and time is no longer. The Lord hath gathered all things in one. The Lord hath brought down Zion from above. The Lord hath brought up Zion from beneath.

(D&C 76:66 – 67) 66 These are they who are come unto Mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly place, the holiest of all. 67 These are they who have come to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of Enoch, and of the Firstborn.

(Isaiah 52:8) 8 Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion.

(D&C 45:11 – 12) 11 Wherefore, hearken ye together and let me show unto you even my wisdom—the wisdom of him whom ye say is the God of Enoch, and his brethren, 12 Who were separated from the earth, and were received unto myself—a city reserved until a day of righteousness shall come—a day which was sought for by all holy men, and they found it not because of wickedness and abominations;

image9.jpeg(JST | Genesis 14:32 – 36) 32 And men having this faith, coming up unto this order of God, were translated and taken up into heaven. 33 And now, Melchizedek was a priest of this order; therefore he obtained peace in Salem, and was called the Prince of peace. 34 And his people wrought righteousness, and obtained heaven, and sought for the city of Enoch which God had before taken, separating it from the earth, having reserved it unto the latter days, or the end of the world; 35 And hath said, and sworn with an oath, that the heavens and the earth should come together; and the sons of God should be tried so as by fire. 36 And this Melchizedek, having thus established righteousness, was called the king of heaven by his people, or, in other words, the King of peace.

(Moses 7:31) 31 And thou hast taken Zion to thine own bosom, from all thy creations, from all eternity to all eternity; and naught but peace, justice, and truth is the habitation of thy throne; and mercy shall go before thy face and have no end; how is it thou canst weep?

(Moses 7:69) 69 And Enoch and all his people walked with God, and he dwelt in the midst of Zion; and it came to pass that Zion was not, for God received it up into his own bosom; and from thence went forth the saying, ZION IS FLED.

(Psalms 102:16) 16 When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.

(D&C 38:4) 4 I am the same which have taken the Zion of Enoch into mine own bosom; and verily, I say, even as many as have believed in my name, for I am Christ, and in mine own name, by the virtue of the blood which I have spilt, have I pleaded before the Father for them.

We will fall on each other’s necks and kiss each other. This is a great reunion of the Fathers and the sons.

(Moses 7:63) 63 And the Lord said unto Enoch: Then shalt thou and all thy city meet them there, and we will receive them into our bosom, and they shall see us; and we will fall upon their necks, and they shall fall upon our necks, and we will kiss each other;

(Romans 16:16) 16 Salute one another with an holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you.

The Battle of Armageddon
Kirtland the Armageddon Jerusalem

The year 2037 comes from Ezekiel where the siege of the Armageddon Kirtland Jerusalem occurs after 430 years: 1607 the establishment of Jamestown plus 430 years gives us 2037.

image10.jpeg(Ezekiel 4:2, 5 – 7) 2 And lay siege against it, and build a fort against it, and cast a mount against it; set the camp also against it, and set battering rams against it round about…. 5 For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel. 6 And when thou hast accom-plished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year. 7 Therefore thou shalt set thy face toward the siege of Jerusalem, and thine arm shall be uncovered, and thou shalt prophesy against it.

Ezekiel describes the war that leads to Armageddon. This is the pre-millennial war of Gog and Magog as there is also a post-millennial war of Gog and Magog (Revelation 20:7 – 10).

(Ezekiel 38:3 – 4) 3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: 4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

(Ezekiel 38:14 – 21) 14 ¶ Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it? 15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army: 16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes. … 19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; 20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. 21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother.

Everyone who comes against Jerusalem at Armageddon will be destroyed.

(Zechariah 12:2 – 3) 2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. 3 ¶ And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

Armageddon takes place in Kirtland Ohio in America in the heart of the Earth.

image11.gif(Book of Joseph 3:7) 7 And all nations shall gather together in the heart of the earth to make war with the Lord, even the almighty king of heaven and earth. Wo, wo, wo unto the chief princes of the earth, even unto the seed of Dan, who hath made gold their god and a lie their refuge:

(D&C 45:43 – 44) 43 And the remnant shall be gathered unto this place (Kirtland); 44 And then they shall look for me, and, behold, I will come; and they shall see me in the clouds of heaven, clothed with power and great glory; with all the holy angels; and he that watches not for me shall be cut off.

Sidney the Messiah Prince will be killed leading the battle against Gog and Magog.

(Rabbi Chaim Richman) According to tradition, (Sidney) this initial Messiah will lead the fight against the hostile forces of Gog and Magog, and he will be killed in battle.

(Isaiah 45:1) 1 THUS saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;

(Zechariah 10:4) 4 Out of him came forth the corner, out of him (Sidney) the nail, out of him the battle bow, out of him every oppressor together.

Christ in Red Garments Riding a White Horse

Christ is seen coming clothed in red garments traveling in the greatness of his strength.

image12.jpeg(D&C 45:47) 47 Then shall the arm of the Lord fall upon the nations.

(D&C 16:15) 15 Behold, I come as a thief.

(1 Thessalonians 5:4) 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

(D&C 106:4 – 5) 4 And again, verily I say unto you, the coming of the Lord draweth nigh, and it overtaketh the world as a thief in the night—5 Therefore, gird up your loins, that you may be the children of light, and that day shall not overtake you as a thief.

Christ is seen coming clothed in red garments traveling in the greatness of his strength.

(D&C 133:48 – 51) 48 And the Lord shall be red in his apparel, and his garments like him that treadeth in the wine–vat. 49 And so great shall be the glory of his presence that the sun shall hide his face in shame, and the moon shall withhold its light, and the stars shall be hurled from their places. 50 And his voice shall be heard: I have trodden the wine–press alone, and have brought judgment upon all people; and none were with me; 51 And I have trampled them in my fury, and I did tread upon them in mine anger, and their blood have I sprinkled upon my garments, and stained all my raiment; for this was the day of vengeance which was in my heart.

(Revelation 19:11 – 16) 11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

image13.jpeg

(Isaiah 63:1 – 3) 1 WHO is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. 2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? 3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.

(JS-Matthew 1:36) 36 … and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn; and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory;

Christ’s presence will melt the earth beneath him but this is not his full glory.

(D&C 133:41 – 44) 41 And it shall be answered upon their heads; for the presence of the Lord shall be as the melting fire that burneth, and as the fire which causeth the waters to boil. 42 O Lord, thou shalt come down to make thy name known to thine adversaries, and all nations shall tremble at thy presence —43 When thou doest terrible things, things they look not for; 44 Yea, when thou comest down, and the mountains flow down at thy presence, thou shalt meet him who rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, who remembereth thee in thy ways.

(Micah 1:3 – 4) 3 For, behold, the LORD cometh forth out of his place, and will come down, and tread upon the high places of the earth. 4 And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, and as the waters that are poured down a steep place.

The coming of the Lord will burn the wicked with his presence and saves the righteous.

(1 Nephi 22:16 – 17) 16 For the time soon cometh that the fulness of the wrath of God shall be poured out upon all the children of men; for he will not suffer that the wicked shall destroy the righteous. 17 Wherefore, he will preserve the righteous by his power, even if it so be that the fulness of his wrath must come, and the righteous be preserved, even unto the destruction of their enemies by fire. Wherefore, the righteous need not fear; for thus saith the prophet, they shall be saved, even if it so be as by fire.

(Isaiah 30:30) 30 And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones.

(Psalms 18:6 – 11) 6 In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears. 7 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth. 8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. 9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet. 10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. 11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.

(Habakkuk 3:4 – 5) 4 And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power. 5 Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth at his feet.

(Habakkuk 3:12 – 13) 12 Thou didst march through the land in indignation, thou didst thresh the heathen in anger. 13 Thou wentest forth for the salvation of thy people, even for salvation with thine anointed; thou woundedst the head out of the house of the wicked, by discovering the foundation unto the neck.

The Lord Descends and Saves the Jews

The armies attack and ransack the Telestial Part of the city.

(Zechariah 14:2 – 3) 2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

(Revelation 16:19) 19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

(Ezekiel 5:12) 12 ¶ A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about thee and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.

(Zechariah 13:8 – 9) 8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. 9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

The Lord descends to save the Terrestrial part of the City; he sets his foot upon the Mount of Olives which creating a great earthquake that divides the mount into two.

(Zechariah 14:4 – 5) 4 ¶ And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. 5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

(D&C 45:48) 48 And then shall the Lord set his foot upon this mount, and it shall cleave in twain, and the earth shall tremble, and reel to and fro, and the heavens also shall shake.

(D&C 133:20 – 21) 20 For behold, he shall stand upon the mount of Olivet, and upon the mighty ocean, even the great deep, and upon the islands of the sea, and upon the land of Zion. 21 And he shall utter his voice out of Zion, and he shall speak from Jerusalem, and his voice shall be heard among all people;

(Amos 1:2) 2 And he said, The LORD will roar from Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the habitations of the shepherds shall mourn, and the top of Carmel shall wither.

The Mormon Remnant will gather to the Mount of Olives and will see the Lord come.

(D&C 45:43 – 44) 43 And the remnant shall be gathered unto this place (Kirtland); 44 And then they shall look for me, and, behold, I will come; and they shall see me in the clouds of heaven, clothed with power and great glory; with all the holy angels; and he that watches not for me shall be cut off.

There is portrayed a touching scene when the Remnant meets their Lord in person.

image14.jpeg(D&C 45:51 – 53) 51 And then shall the Jews look upon me and say: What are these wounds in thine hands and in thy feet? 52 Then shall they know that I am the Lord; for I will say unto them: These wounds are the wounds with which I was wounded in the house of my friends. I am he who was lifted up. I am Jesus that was crucified. I am the Son of God. 53 And then shall they weep because of their iniquities; then shall they lament because they persecuted their king.

(Zechariah 12:10) 10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

Old Testament Judah and Latter-day-Judah are both sanctified.

(Joel 3:20 – 21) 20 But (Mosaic) Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. 21 For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the LORD dwelleth in Zion.

(D&C 133:35) 35 And they also of the (Latter-day Mormon) tribe of Judah, after their pain, shall be sanctified in holiness before the Lord, to dwell in his presence day and night, forever and ever.

A phenomenon occurs where there is one very long day without a night in-between.

(Zechariah 14:6) 6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: 7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

(Immanuel Velikovsky) These symptoms of the Polar Shift will continue right up and past the eventual rotation stoppage, three days of darkness and realignment of the planet.

The Wicked are Destroyed

The vine of the earth is gathered and crushed at Armageddon.

(Revelation 14:18 – 20) 18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. 19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. 20 And the winepress (of Armageddon) was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

The Angels are waiting the great command to reap down the earth.

(D&C 38:11 – 12) 11 For all flesh is corrupted before me; and the powers of darkness prevail upon the earth, among the children of men, in the presence of all the hosts of heaven — 12 Which causeth silence to reign, and all eternity is pained, and the angels are waiting the great command to reap down the earth, to gather the tares that they may be burned; and, behold, the enemy is combined.

Joel describes the gathering of the Armies of Gog and Magog to the Valley of Jehoshaphat and the Valley of Decision where the Angels use their sickle to harvest the wicked.

(Joel 3:11 – 14) 11 Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause (they Angels) thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD. 12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. 13 (to his mighty Angels) Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. 14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.

A great hail the size of a talent (100 lbs.) destroys the wicked.

image15.jpeg(Ezekiel 38:21 – 23) 21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother. 22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.

(Revelation 16:21) 21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

(Psalms 18:12 – 15) 12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire. 13 The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire. 14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them. 15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

The Lord destroyed an army at the time of Joshua with hail.

(Joshua 10:11) 11 And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Beth-horon, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword.

The inhabitants of Jerusalem and the House of David will also rise up against the nations that have come up against Jerusalem.

(Zechariah 12:8 – 9) 8 In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them. 9 ¶ And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

The Beast and the False Prophet are cast alive into a lake of fire and brimstone.

image16.jpeg(Revelation 19:20 – 21) 20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

(Daniel 7:11) 11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.

(Revelation 20:10) 10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

The tares of the earth receive Lucifer into Hell.

(Isaiah 14:7 – 10) 7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing. 8 Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us. 9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. 10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?

(Isaiah 14:15 – 19) 15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. 16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; 17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners? 18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house. 19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.

2nd Trump: Terrestrials are Redeemed

At the 2nd trump, all the dead Terrestrial beings since Father Adam was driven out of the Garden of Eden are brought forth from their graves. They are now redeemed and judged according to men in the flesh. I believe that the 2nd Angel is the great prophets and seer Enoch.

image17.jpeg(D&C 76:72 – 74) 72 Behold, these are they who died without law; 73 And also they who are the spirits of men kept in prison, whom the Son visited, and preached the gospel unto them, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh; 74 Who received not the testimony of Jesus in the flesh, but afterwards received it.

(D&C 88:99) 99 And after this another angel shall sound, which is the second trump; and then cometh the redemption of those who are Christ’s at his coming; who have received their part in that prison which is prepared for them, that they might receive the gospel, and be judged according to men in the flesh.

(1 Corinthians 15:21 – 23) 21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 23 But every man in his own order: Christ the (Celestial the) firstfruits; afterward they (the Terrestrial) that are Christ’s at his coming.

(Isaiah 27:13) 13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the (second) great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem.

The Ezekiel Valley of Bones dramatically describes the raising of the Mosaic House of Israel from Abraham to Christ. They are raised a great army the whole House of Israel where they died in the Old Testament Promised Land.

image18.jpeg(Ezekiel 37:1 – 14) 1 THE hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, 2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. 3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest. 4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. 5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: 6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD. 7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. 8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them. 9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army. 11 ¶ Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. 12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. 13 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, 14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.

The Terrestrial peoples are quickened in the flesh by a portion of the Terrestrial glory. The full portion of the Terrestrial glory will come to them at the Millennium and the new Heaven and Earth.

(D&C 88:30) 30 And they who are quickened by a portion of the terrestrial glory shall then receive of the same, even a fulness.

A Great Asteroid Hits the Earth

Revelation 8 gives another description of the 2nd Trump when a great mountain hits the earth destroying a third part of the sea, hitting the Atlantic ocean.

image19.jpeg(Revelation 8:8 – 9) 8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood. 9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

When the Astroid hits the Atlantic Ocean and causes a great tsunami. Not as great as when the earth rocked to and fro as drunken man during the Opening of the 6th Seal but very great covering the east coast of the United States and the West Coast of Europe and Africa.

(biblesearchers.com) The blast of the Second Shofar will cascade over the oceans, as a “great mountain burning like fire was thrown into the sea” will annihilate a third of all living creatures in the ocean. This planetoid impact will have the potential to create a tsunami (the 2nd mega-tsunami) so large it could topple the largest skyscraper, as the spreading tsunami expands in the direction of the four winds of the heavens. A line of mega-waves, hundreds of feet high could potentially destroy all the coastal cities on the continents surrounding her impact.

One Great Land Mass Again

At the creation of the earth, the land was one great mass.

(Abraham 4:9 – 10) 9 And the Gods ordered, saying: Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the earth come up dry; and it was so as they ordered; 10 And the Gods pronounced the dry land, Earth; …

The Old Testament Promised Land will be joined back together with North and South America.

(D&C 133:22 – 24) 22 And it shall be a voice as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder, which shall break down the mountains, and the valleys shall not be found. 23 He shall command the great deep, and it shall be driven back into the north countries, and the islands shall become one land; 24 And the land of Jerusalem (the Ezekiel Jerusalem) and the land of Zion (the Kirtland Jerusalem) shall be turned back into their own place, and the earth shall be like as it was in the days before it was divided.

(Genesis 10:25) 25 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.

America started out as the 1st Old World. Adam and Eve began in America.

(Orson F. Whitney, Life of Heber C. Kimball, 1888 ed. Pg 219) America, the old world, not the new! Cradle of man, mother of nations, grave of empires!

At the time of Enoch, a great land came up out of the sea. Is that land still here today as in Eurasia or was it Africa? Or did it sink again as in Atlantis or Lemuria?

image21.jpeg(Moses 7:14) 14 There also came up a land out of the depth of the sea, and so great was the fear of the enemies of the people of God, that they fled and stood afar off and went upon the land which came up out of the depth of the sea.

Scientists have named this super-continent Pangaea.

image20.jpeg(pangaealand.com) Pangaea, was the super-continent that existed during the Paleozoic and Mesozoic eras about 250 million years ago, before the component continents were separated into their current configuration

Resurrection of Terrestrial Animals

The Animals are Terrestrial because they were in the paradisaical Garden of Eden. They are resurrected at the 2nd trump. The use of the beasts and the fowls to clean up the carnage left upon the earth from the destruction of Armageddon is a well documented event showing up in all the books of scriputures and the teachings of Joseph Smith.

image22.jpeg(Teachings Pg 291–292; HC 5:339–345) I suppose John saw beings there of a thousand forms, that had been saved from ten thousand times ten thousand earths like this,—strange beasts of which we have no conception: all might be seen in heaven. The grand secret was to show John what there was in heaven. John learned that God glorified Himself by saving all that His hands had made, whether beasts, fowls, fishes or men; and He will glorify Himself with them. Says one, “I cannot believe in the salvation of beasts.” Any man who would tell you that this could not be, would tell you that revelations are not true. John heard the words of the beasts giving glory to God, and understood them. God who made the beasts could understand every language spoken by them. The four beasts were four of the most noble animals that had filled the measure of their creation, and had been saved from other worlds, because they were perfect: they were like angels in their sphere. We are not told where they came from, and I do not know; but they were seen and heard by John praising and glorifying God. The resurrected beasts and fowls are then asked to clean up the mess which is the aftermath of Armageddon.

(Ezekiel 39:4) 4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

image23.jpeg(Ezekiel 39:17 – 20) 17 ¶ And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood. 18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan. 19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. 20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.

(Revelation 19:17 – 18) 17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

(Jeremiah 7:32 – 33) 32 ¶ Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be called Tophet, nor the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of slaughter: for they shall bury in Tophet, till there be no place. 33 And the carcases of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth; and none shall fray them away.

Flies and maggots will also be used to ride the earth of wickedness.

image24.jpeg(D&C 29:16 – 21) 16 And there shall be a great hailstorm sent forth to destroy the crops of the earth. 17 And it shall come to pass, because of the wickedness of the world, that I will take vengeance upon the wicked, for they will not repent; for the cup of mine indignation is full; for behold, my blood shall not cleanse them if they hear me not. 18 Wherefore, I the Lord God will send forth flies upon the face of the earth, which shall take hold of the inhabitants thereof, and shall eat their flesh, and shall cause maggots to come in upon them; 19 And their tongues shall be stayed that they shall not utter against me; and their flesh shall fall from off their bones, and their eyes from their sockets; 20 And it shall come to pass that the beasts of the forest and the fowls of the air shall devour them up. 21 And the great and abominable church, which is the whore of all the earth, shall be cast down by devouring fire, according as it is spoken by the mouth of Ezekiel the prophet, who spoke of these things, which have not come to pass but surely must, as I live, for abominations shall not reign.

(Isaiah 18:6) 6 They shall be left together unto the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall summer upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall winter upon them.

(Jeremiah 16:4) 4 They shall die of grievous deaths; they shall not be lamented; neither shall they be buried; but they shall be as dung upon the face of the earth: and they shall be consumed by the sword, and by famine; and their carcases shall be meat for the fowls of heaven, and for the beasts of the earth.

Terrestrial Israel will be employed 7 months in burning the weapons left and burying the dead.

(Ezekiel 39:8 – 14) 8 ¶ Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken. 9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the hand-staves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: 10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD. 11 ¶ And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamon-gog. 12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. 13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD. 14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.

The Kirtland Jerusalem

Kirtland will be the Terrestrial home of the Mormon House of Judah.

(D&C 82:13) 13 For I have consecrated the land of Kirtland in mine own due time for the benefit of the (Mormon Jewish Remnant) saints of the Most High, and for a (Terrestrial) stake to Zion.

Kirtland is one of the Mountains belonging to the Lord.

(Zechariah 8:3) 3 Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain.

(D&C 133:13) 13 And let them who be of Judah flee unto Jerusalem, unto the mountains of the Lord’s house.

(Isaiah 66:20) 20 And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD.

The Kirtland Temple will have to be built anew; it was destroyed in the battle of Armageddon.

(D&C 95:13 – 16) 13 Now here is wisdom, and the mind of the Lord — let the house be built, not after the manner of the world, for I give not unto you that ye shall live after the manner of the world; 14 Therefore, let it be built after the manner which I shall show unto three of you, whom ye shall appoint and ordain unto this power. 15 And the size thereof shall be fifty and five feet in width, and let it be sixty–five feet in length, in the inner court thereof. 16 And let the lower part of the inner court be dedicated unto me for your sacrament offering, and for your preaching, and your fasting, and your praying, and the offering up of your most holy desires unto me, saith your Lord.

(Psalms 78:68 – 69) 68 But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved. 69 And he built his sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth which he hath established for ever.

The other two temples will also be built at the same time finally completing the set of three.

image25.jpeg(D&C 94:1 – 4) 1 AND again, verily I say unto you, my friends, a commandment I give unto you, that ye shall commence a work of laying out and preparing a beginning and foundation of the city of the stake of Zion, here in the land of Kirtland, beginning at my house. 2 And behold, it must be done according to the pattern which I have given unto you. 3 And let the first lot on the south be consecrated unto me for the building of a house for the presidency, for the work of the presidency, in obtaining revelations; and for the work of the ministry of the presidency, in all things pertaining to the church and kingdom. 4 Verily I say unto you, that it shall be built fifty–five by sixty–five feet in the width thereof and in the length thereof, in the inner court.

(D&C 94:10 – 11) 10 And again, verily I say unto you, the second lot on the south shall be dedicated unto me for the building of a house unto me, for the work of the and all things whatsoever I shall command you. 11 And it shall be printing of the translation of my scriptures, fifty–five by sixty–five feet in the width thereof and the length thereof, in the inner court; and there shall be a lower and a higher court.

(Zechariah 1:16) 16 Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.

There will be a fountain come out from under the Kirtland Temple to cleanse the land and the people. This is also true with the New Jerusalem Temple and Ezekiel Temples.

(Joel 3:18) 18 ¶ And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim.

(Zechariah 13:1) 1 IN that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.

The Latter-day Mormons are the last days Levite priests to keep the charge of the tabernacle. They will build thousands of temples and officiate in temple work for the Telestial sufferings in hell throughout the Millennial reign of Christ.

image26.jpegimage27.jpeg(Brigham Young JD 3:372) To accomplish this work there will have to be not only one temple but thousands of them, and thousands and tens of thousands of men and women will go into those temples and officiate for people who have lived as far back as the Lord shall reveal.

(lds.org) Many people have died without receiving these ordinances. People on the earth must perform these ordinances for them. This work is now being done in the temples of the Lord. There is too much work to finish before the Millennium begins, so it will be completed during that time.

image28.jpegThe early brethren believed that the Mormon Hierarchy would fill the highest political offices in the country totally intermingling church and state. Brigham set up his religious kingdom in Deseret in hopes of separating the people from the United States.

(JD 5:266, John Taylor) We used to have a difference between Church and State, but it is all one now. Thank God.

(Times and Seasons Vol. 5 March 15, 1844) …the church must not triumph over the state, but actually swallow it up.

(Causes of Mormon Non-Mormon Conflict in Hancock County, Illinois 1839-1846) Joseph Smith had himself anointed King and Priest… in a revelation dated 1886 given to President John Taylor, mention is made of Joseph Smith being crowned a king in Nauvoo. Not only was he ordained a king but the leading members of the Church were assigned governmental responsibilities. Brigham Young was to be president, John Taylor vice president, members of the Church were assigned to represent different states in the house and senate of the United States, and a full cabinet was appointed.

Return of the Northern Mosaic Tribes

America will be cleansed by armies, famine, and earthquake to make room for the lost tribes return.

(Teachings Pg 17) And now I am prepared to say by the authority of Jesus Christ, that not many years shall pass away before the United States shall present such a scene of bloodshed as has not a parallel in the history of our nation; pestilence, hail, famine, and earthquake will sweep the wicked of this generation from off the face of the land, to open and prepare the way for the return of the lost tribes of Israel from the north country.

The return of the Northern tribes is dramatically described by Jeremiah.

(Jeremiah 16:14 – 15) 14 ¶ Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; 15 But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.

(Jeremiah 3:16 – 18) 16 And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the LORD, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the LORD: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more. 17 At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD; and all the (Terrestrial) nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart. 18 In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.

(Ezekiel 37:21 – 22) 21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: 22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:

Joseph holds the keys that will return the 10 tribes from the north countries during an ice age.

image29.jpeg(D&C 110:11) 11 After this vision closed, the heavens were again opened unto us; and Moses appeared before us, and committed unto us the keys of the gathering of Israel from the four parts of the earth, and the leading of the ten tribes from the land of the north.

(Joseph Patriarchal Blessing) In due time shall he go forth toward the north, and by the power of his word shall the deep begin to give way; and the ice melt before the Sun. By the keys of the kingdom shall he lead Israel into the land of Zion, while the house of Jacob shouts in the dance and in the song.

(biblesearches.com) It appears that according to the researchers in the Pentagon Report, the home-Lands of the Lost Tribes of Israel will become the most vulnerable lands that will change into a “Siberia-like climate”. The populations affected by the predictions of the Pentagon Report, most of the vast populations living there today will find their homes residing in an inhospitable region for living and raising families.

(Articles of Faith 1:10) 10 We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.

(D&C 133:26 – 27) 26 And they who are in the north countries shall come in remembrance before the Lord; and their prophets shall hear his voice, and shall no longer stay themselves; and they shall smite the rocks, and the ice shall flow down at their presence. 27 And an highway shall be cast up in the midst of the great deep.

They will come to Zion and receive blessings from the children of Ephraim.

(D&C 133:30 – 33) 30 And they shall bring forth their rich treasures unto the children of Ephraim, my servants. 31 And the boundaries of the everlasting hills shall tremble at their presence. 32 And there shall they fall down and be crowned with glory, even in Zion, by the hands of the servants of the Lord, even the children of Ephraim. 33 And they shall be filled with songs of everlasting joy.

(Joseph Smith, Sr., Patriarchal Blessing Book no. 1, Historical Department) thou shalt stand on Mount Zion when the tribes of Jacob come shouting from the north, and with thy brethren, the sons of Ephraim, crown them in the name of Jesus Christ:

John the Revelator has visited the Lost Ten Tribes.

(HC 1:176 3 June 1831) John the Revelator was then among the Ten Tribes of Israel who had been led away by Shalmaneser, king of Assyria, to prepare them for their return from their long dispersion.

(Diary of Oliver B. Huntington) While the camp of Zion was on the way to Missouri in 1834, Joseph was some ways ahead of the company when there was seen talking with him by the roadside a man, a stranger. When the company came up there was no person with him. In camp that night, Heber asked the Prophet who the man was. Joseph replied that it was the beloved Disciple John, who was then on his way to the ten tribes in the north.

Skousen talks about how the 10 tribes made their way up into Europe.

image30.gif(Cleon Skousen) 1. As the Ten Tribes migrated north a more righteous group divided from the less righteous and were transferred to a separate planet as had occurred with the City Enoch.
2. The less righteous group of the Ten Tribes eventually became the Anglo-Saxons and the tribes who occupied Northern Europe.
3. When this miraculous highway emerges from the deep, it will be so spectacular that the crossing of the Red Sea in the days of Moses will seem like practically nothing compared to it.
4. Those who were “left behind” from the tribe of Ephraim will greet their long lost relatives and share with them the blessings of the Temple.

The Ezekiel Jerusalem

Orson Hyde rededicated that portion of the Promised Land for the return of the tribes of Israel.

(Prayer of Orson Hyde on the Mount of Olives) Now, O Lord! Thy servant has been obedient to the heavenly vision which Thou gavest him in his native land; and under the shadow of Thine outstretched arm, he has safely arrived in this place, to dedicate and consecrate this land unto Thee, for the gathering together of Judah’s scattered remnants, according to the predictions of the holy Prophets—for the building up of Jerusalem again after it has been trodden down by the Gentiles so long, and for rearing a Temple in horror of Thy name.

The House of Israel see God’s Glory and his presence but not his person face-to-face. They saw the majesty of God on Mount Sinai and it scared them into prophet worship. They saw his Glory presence as a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night and when the glory filled the tabernacle.

(Ezekiel 43:1 – 6) 1 AFTERWARD he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh toward the east: 2 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory. 3 And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face. 4 And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east. 5 So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house. 6 And I heard him speaking unto me out of the house; and the man stood by me.

(Ezekiel 43:7 – 8) 7 ¶ And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places. 8 In their setting of their threshold by my thresholds, and their post by my posts, and the wall between me and them, they have even defiled my holy name by their abominations that they have committed: wherefore I have consumed them in mine anger.

image31.jpeg(Exodus 29:42 – 45) 42 This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD: where I will meet you, to speak there unto thee. 43 And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by my glory. 44 And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar: I will sanctify also both Aaron and his sons, to minister to me in the priest’s office. 45 ¶ And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their God.

(Ezekiel 37:26 – 28) 26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary (Kirtland Ohio) in the midst of them for evermore. 27 My tabernacle (The Ezekiel Jerusalem) also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 28 And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

The Old Testament House of Israel will keep all the feasts days and Sabbaths

(Ezekiel 44:24) 24 … and they shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths.

The Old Testament Fathers will be gathered around the Ezekiel temple.

(Ezekiel 47:13 – 14) 13 ¶ Thus saith the Lord GOD; This shall be the border, whereby ye shall inherit the land according to the twelve tribes of Israel: Joseph shall have two portions. 14 And ye shall inherit it, one as well as another: concerning the which I lifted up mine hand to give it unto your fathers: and this land shall fall unto you for inheritance.

(Exodus 15:17) 17 Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established.

The Old Testament House of Israel will build the Ezekiel Temple.

image32.jpeg(Teachings Pg 286) Judah must return, Jerusalem must be rebuilt, and the temple, and water come out from under the temple, and the waters of the Dead Sea be healed. It will take some time to rebuild the walls of the city and the temple, &tc.; and all this must be done before the Son of Man will make His appearance.

(Leviticus 20:24) 24 But I have said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with milk and honey: I am the LORD your God, which have separated you from other people.

(Ezekiel 48:1 – 8) 1 NOW these are the names of the tribes. From the north end to the coast of the way of Hethlon, as one goeth to Hamath, Hazar-enan, the border of Damascus northward, to the coast of Hamath; for these are his sides east and west; a portion for Dan. 2 And by the border of Dan, from the east side unto the west side, a portion for Asher. 3 And by the border of Asher, from the east side even unto the west side, a portion for Naphtali. 4 And by the border of Naphtali, from the east side unto the west side, a portion for Manasseh. 5 And by the border of Manasseh, from the east side unto the west side, a portion for Ephraim. 6 And by the border of Ephraim, from the east side even unto the west side, a portion for Reuben. 7 And by the border of Reuben, from the east side unto the west side, a portion for Judah. 8 ¶ And by the border of Judah, from the east side unto the west side, shall be the offering which ye shall offer of five and twenty thousand reeds in breadth, and in length as one of the other parts, from the east side unto the west side: and the sanctuary shall be in the midst of it. …

image33.gif(Ezekiel 48:11 – 13) 11 It shall be for the priests that are sanctified of the sons of Zadok; which have kept my charge, which went not astray when the children of Israel went astray, as the Levites went astray. 12 And this oblation of the land that is offered shall be unto them a thing most holy by the border of the Levites. 13 And over against the border of the priests the Levites shall have five and twenty thousand in length, and ten thousand in breadth: all the length shall be five and twenty thousand, and the breadth ten thousand. …

(Ezekiel 48:23 – 29) 23 As for the rest of the tribes, from the east side unto the west side, Benjamin shall have a portion. 24 And by the border of Benjamin, from the east side unto the west side, Simeon shall have a portion. 25 And by the border of Simeon, from the east side unto the west side, Issachar a portion. 26 And by the border of Issachar, from the east side unto the west side, Zebulun a portion. 27 And by the border of Zebulun, from the east side unto the west side, Gad a portion. 28 And by the border of Gad, at the south side southward, the border shall be even from Tamar unto the waters of strife in Kadesh, and to the river toward the great sea. 29 This is the land which ye shall divide by lot unto the tribes of Israel for inheritance, and these are their portions, saith the Lord GOD.

image34.jpeg(Zechariah 14:16 – 19) 16 ¶ And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. 17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. 18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. 19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

King David the Prince

The prince is the only one that gets to be with God in his glorified state. I can think of no one else that fits the description better than King David of the old world himself. Even though the great King David isn’t left in Hell, he is damned in his progression to a Terrestria State for all eternity. He is the greatest in the Terrestrial realm.

(Ezekiel 44:1 – 3) 1 THEN he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it was shut. 2 Then said the LORD unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the LORD, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut. 3 It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat bread before the LORD; he shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and shall go out by the way of the same.

The Lord loves King David; he is the Prince and will rule over the House of Israel.

(Acts 13:22) 22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.

(2 Samuel 7:26) 26 And let thy name be magnified for ever, saying, The LORD of hosts is the God over Israel: and let the house of thy servant David be established before thee.

image35.jpeg(1 Kings 12:20) 20 And it came to pass, when all Israel heard that Jeroboam was come again, that they sent and called him unto the congregation, and made him king over all Israel: there was none that followed the house of David, but the tribe of Judah only.

(Psalms 122:5) 5 For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.

(Zechariah 12:8) 8 In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.

King David will be King over the Old Testament Fathers.

image36.jpeg(Ezekiel 37:24 – 25) 24 And David (King David of the Old Testament) my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. 25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.

(Psalms 16:10 – 11) 10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

(Acts 2:25 – 31) 25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: 26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: 27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance. 29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. 30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; 31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

(Teachings Pg 339) A murderer, for instance, one that sheds inocent blood, cannot have forgiveness. David sought forgiveness at the hand of God carefully with tears, for the murder of Uriah; but he could only get it through hell: he got a promise that his soul should not be left in hell. Although David was a king, he never did obtain the spirit and power of Elijah and the fullness of the Priesthood; and the Priesthood that he received, and the throne and kingdom of David is to be taken from him and given to another by the name of David in the last days, raised up out of his lineage.

King David is the Prince who receives a specific inheritance in the Ezekiel Jerusalem.

(Ezekiel 48:21 – 22) 21 ¶ And the residue shall be for the prince, on the one side and on the other of the holy oblation, and of the possession of the city, over against the five and twenty thousand of the oblation toward the east border, and westward over against the five and twenty thousand toward the west border, over against the portions for the prince: and it shall be the holy oblation; and the sanctuary of the house shall be in the midst thereof. 22 Moreover from the possession of the Levites, and from the possession of the city, being in the midst of that which is the prince’s, between the border of Judah and the border of Benjamin, shall be for the prince.

In the Ezekiel Temple Prince David will be the only one in the presence of the Lord.

(Ezekiel 44:2 – 3) 2 Then said the LORD unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the LORD, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut. 3 It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat bread before the LORD; he shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and shall go out by the way of the same.

Waters from Beneath the Temple

There will be rivers flowing out from each of the Major Temples: New Jerusalem, Kirtland, Ezekiel and Adam-Ondi-Ahman.

(Zechariah 14:8 – 9) 8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. 9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

Waters will flow from beneath the Ezekiel temple and make the land a Garden of Eden.

image37.jpegimage38.jpeg

Waters shall issue out from under the Temple to feed and heal the people and the land. The waters will come out of both the Ezekiel and the Kirtland Temples.

image39.png(Ezekiel 47:1 – 12) 1 AFTERWARD he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar. 2 Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way that looketh eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side. 3 And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles. 4 Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins. 5 Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over. 6 ¶ And he said unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen this? Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river. 7 Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other. 8 Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed. 9 And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh. … 12 And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.

Animal Sacrifices

In the Ezekiel Temple the Priesthood will be divided up into courses and will serve the Lord God attending to the daily sacrifices. Perhaps this goes on throughout the Millennium. The children of the Levites grow up watch and learning the responsibilities of the Priestood for when it’s their turn on earth.

(Ezekiel 43:18 – 23) 18 ¶ And he said unto me, Son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; These are the ordinances of the altar in the day when they shall make it, to offer burnt offerings thereon, and to sprinkle blood thereon. 19 And thou shalt give to the priests the Levites that be of the seed of Zadok, which approach unto me, to minister unto me, saith the Lord GOD, a young bullock for a sin offering. 20 And thou shalt take of the blood thereof, and put it on the four horns of it, and on the four corners of the settle, and upon the border round about: thus shalt thou cleanse and purge it. 21 Thou shalt take the bullock also of the sin offering, and he shall burn it in the appointed place of the house, without the sanctuary. 22 And on the second day thou shalt offer a kid of the goats without blemish for a sin offering; and they shall cleanse the altar, as they did cleanse it with the bullock. 23 When thou hast made an end of cleansing it, thou shalt offer a young bullock without blemish, and a ram out of the flock without blemish.

Next Joseph teaches us that these same sacrifices will take place in the Kirtland Jerusalem temple. And the New Jerusalem Temple where Terrestrial peoples reside and priesthood ordinaces take place.

Joseph Smith about Animal Sacrifices?

image40.jpeg(John C. Bennett to Simeon Francis, Sangamo Journal, July 5, 1842) ‘Well, sister Pratt, says Joe, ‘as you have refused me, it becomes sin, unless sacrifice is offered:’ and turning to me he said, ‘General, if you are my friend I wish you to procure a lamb, and have it slain, and sprinkle the door posts and the gate with its blood, and take the kidneys and the entrails and offer them upon an altar of twelve stones that have not been touched with a hammer, as a burnt offering, and it will save me and my priesthood. Will you do it? ‘I will,’ I replied. So I procured the lamb from Capt. John T. Barnett, and it was slain by Lieut. Stephen H. Goddard, and I offered the kidneys and entrails in sacrifice for Joe as desired; and Joe said, all is now safe – the destroying angel will pass over, without harming any of us.

image41.jpeg(Words of Joseph Smith Pg 43) It will be necessary here to make a few observations on the doctrine, set forth in the above quotation, As it is generally supposed that Sacrifice was entirely done away when the great sacrifice was offered up—and that there will be no necessity for the ordinance of Sacrifice in future, but those who assert this, are certainly not acquainted with the duties, privileges and authority of the priesthood. Or with the prophets The offering of Sacrifice has ever been connected and forms a part of the duties of the priesthood. It began with the priesthood and will be continued until after the coming of Christ from generation to generation. We frequently have mention made of the offering of Sacrifice by the servants of the most high in ancient days prior to the law of Moses, See which ordinances will be continued when the priesthood is restored with all its authority power and blessings

(Heber C. Kimball, January 2 1846) “When we see a temple built right, there will be a place for the priests to enter and put on their robes, and offer up sacrifices, first for themselves, and then for the people”. At present, animal sacrifice is considered “suspended” by the First Presidency of the Church:

(Wilford Woodruff, December 18, 1857) Under the pulpit in the west end [Aaronic priesthood end] will be a place to offer sacrifices. There will be an altar prepared for that purpose so that when any sacrifices are to be offered, they should be offered there.”

(Journal of Wandle Mace) The Quorum of the Twelve had been filled, but of the number selected one–Willard Richards–was in England and Joseph was instructing those present of that Quorum how they must proceed to prepare themselves, that they might ordain Willard Richards to the Apostleship when they should reach that country. Joseph told them to go to Kirtland and cleanse and purify a certain room in the temple, that they must kill a lamb and offer a sacrifice unto the Lord which should prepare them to ordain Willard Richard a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

(HC 4:210) These sacrifices as well as every ordinance belonging to the priesthood will when the temple of the Lord shall be built and the Sons Levi be purified be fully restored and attended to then all their powers ramifications and blessings—this the Sons of Levi shall be purified. ever was and will exist when the powers of the Melchisid Priesthood are sufficiently manifest. Else how can the restitution of all things spoken of by all the Holy Prophets be brought to pass. It is not to be under-stood that, the law of moses will be established again with all it rights and variety of ceremonies, this had never been spoken of by the prophets but those things which existed prior Mose’s day viz Sacrifice will be continued —It may be asked by some what necessity for Sacrifice since the great Sacrifice was offered? In answer to which if Repentance Baptism and faith were necessary to Salvation existed prior to the days of Christ what necessity for them since that time-

This priesthood is passed on to Aaron seed forever through all their generations.

(D&C 84:18) 18 And the Lord confirmed a priesthood also upon Aaron and his seed, throughout all their generations, which priesthood also continueth and abideth forever with the priesthood which is after the holiest order of God.

(Exodus 40:15) 15 And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto me in the priest’s office: for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.

The Heathen

Section 76 tells us that part those of the Terrestrial world are the heathen those who died without law.

(D&C 76:71 – 74) 71 And again, we saw the terrestrial world, and behold and lo, these are they who are of the terrestrial, … 72 Behold, these are they who died without law; 73 And also they who are the spirits of men kept in prison, whom the Son visited, and preached the gospel unto them, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh; 74 Who received not the testimony of Jesus in the flesh, but afterwards received it.

At the 2nd Trump the Heathen nations will be redeemed because they had no law.

(D&C 45:54) 54 And then shall the heathen nations be redeemed, and they that knew no law shall have part in the first resurrection; and it shall be tolerable for them.

(2 Nephi 9:26) 26 For the atonement satisfieth the demands of his justice upon all those who have not the law given to them, that they are delivered from that awful monster, death and hell, and the devil, and the lake of fire and brimstone, which is endless torment; and they are restored to that God who gave them breath, which is the Holy One of Israel.

(Mosiah 15:24) 24 And these are those who have part in the first resurrection; and these are they that have died before Christ came, in their ignorance, not having salvation declared unto them. And thus the Lord bringeth about the restoration of these; and they have a part in the first resurrection, or have eternal life, being redeemed by the Lord.

The Heathen will receive a greater glory than the wicked religious telestial.

(D&C 75:22) 22 And it shall be more tolerable for the heathen in the day of judgment, than for that house;

(D&C 82:3) 3 For of him unto whom much is given much is required; and he who sins against the greater light shall receive the greater condemnation.

Israel will own the heathen and pass them and their children on as an inheritance.

(Leviticus 25:44 – 46) 44 Both thy bondmen, and thy bondmaids, which thou shalt have, shall be of the heathen that are round about you; of them shall ye buy bondmen and bondmaids. 45 Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and of their families that are with you, which they begat in your land: and they shall be your possession. 46 And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another with rigour.

(Ezekiel 47:22 – 23) 22 ¶ And it shall come to pass, that ye shall divide it by lot for an inheritance unto you, and to the strangers that sojourn among you, which shall beget children among you: and they shall be unto you as born in the country among the children of Israel; they shall have inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel. 23 And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger sojourneth, there shall ye give him his inheritance, saith the Lord GOD.

(Psalms 105:44) 44 And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people;

(Isaiah 14:1 – 2) 1 FOR the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.2 And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the LORD for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.

(Amos 9:12) 12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this.

The Heathen nations will receive the blessings of the Gospel of Abraham.

(D&C 90:10) 10 And then cometh the day when the arm of the Lord shall be revealed in power in convincing the nations, the heathen nations, the house of Joseph, of the gospel of their salvation.

(Ezekiel 39:7) 7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.

(Ezekiel 39:21) 21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.

(2 Nephi 10:4) 4 For should the mighty miracles be wrought among other nations they would repent, and know that he be their God.

(Galatians 3:8) 8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

So the heathen nations are the good moral people of the world who love God and just want to raise their families in peace and safety. They will rise in the 1st resurrection.

(adherants.com) In which case, we can say that of a world population of 6.7 billion, there are:
2.1 billion Christians; 1.5 billion Muslims; 14 million religious Jews which makes ~3.7 billion believers in Yahweh, and thus ~3.1 billion non-believers. Non-religious people make up the third-largest slice of the world’s population with 1.1 billion.

Much of the heathen nations comes from the seed of Ham.

(Genesis 9:18) 18 ¶ And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan. … 25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. 26 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. 27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

Look at the 1st Pharaoh of Egypt who shaped his society like that of Shem.

(Abraham 1:25 – 26) 25 Now the first government of Egypt was established by Pharaoh, the eldest son of Egyptus, the daughter of Ham, and it was after the manner of the government of Ham, which was patriarchal. 26 Pharaoh, being a righteous man, established his kingdom and judged his people wisely and justly all his days, seeking earnestly to imitate that order established by the fathers in the first generations, in the days of the first patriarchal reign, even in the reign of Adam, and also of Noah, his father, who blessed him with the blessings of the earth, and with the blessings of wisdom, but cursed him as pertaining to the Priesthood.

Surely the Kings, Presidents, and rulers much of the time are from the Heathen.

(Articles of Faith 1:12) 12 We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.

(Psalms 2:1 – 2) 1 WHY do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed,

(Psalms 102:15 – 16) 15 So the heathen shall fear the name of the LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy glory. 16 When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.

(Joel 3:12) 12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.

(Zechariah 14:14) 14 And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.

3rd Trump: Telestial and Sons of Perdition

The Celestial and Terrestrial peoples have both been resurrected but here the spirits of the Telestial and the Sons of Perdition come forth to be judged. I believe the 3rd Angel is the great Patriarch Noah.

image42.jpeg(D&C 88:100 – 101) 100 And again, another trump shall sound, which is the third trump; and then come the spirits of men who are to be judged, and are found under condemnation; 101 And these are the rest of the dead; and they live not again until the thousand (millennium) years are ended, neither again, until (after the little season at) the end of the earth.

(Alma 12:15 – 16) 15 … we must come forth and stand before him in his glory, and in his power, and in his might, majesty, and dominion, and acknowledge to our everlasting shame that all his judgments are just; … 16 And now behold, I say unto you then cometh a death, even a second death, which is a spiritual death; hen is a time that whosoever dieth in his sins, as to a temporal death, shall also die a spiritual death;

The Telestial and Sons of Perdition experience a partial judgment at this time.

(Joseph Fielding Smith) John saw these dead as they came to the partial judgment at the coming of Christ. He saw the righteous made happy as they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years, “but the rest of the dead,” after receiving a partial judgment, “lived not again until the thousand years were finished.

1/3 Part of Waters become Wormwood

Another asteroid hits the earth on the land.

image43.jpeg(Revelation 8:10 – 11) 10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

I don’t subscribe to the idea that the contamination of Wormwood is radiation of a nuclear source but it is interesting that Chernobyl means Wormwood and Fukushima will dwarf Chernobyl and destroying the Pacific Ocean.

image44.gifimage45.jpeg

(kenraggio.com) The Russian word, “Chernobyl,” means “Wormwood,” as mentioned in these verses. It certainly appears that the third trumpet sounded on April 26, 1986.

4th Trump:
The Sons of Perdition remain Filthy Still

This trump declares that the Sons of Perdition remain filthy still. I believe that the 4th Angel is the great Melchizedek who like Enoch created a Zion and was raptured up to the City of Enoch.

image46.jpeg(D&C 88:102) 102 And another trump shall sound, which is the fourth trump, saying: There are found among those who are to remain until that great and last day, even the end, who shall remain filthy still.

(2 Nephi 9:16) 16 And assuredly, as the Lord liveth, for the Lord God hath spoken it, and it is his eternal word, which cannot pass away, that they who are righteous shall be righteous still, and they who are filthy shall be filthy still; wherefore, they who are filthy are the devil and his angels; and they shall go away into everlasting fire, prepared for them; and their torment is as a lake of fire and brimstone, whose flame ascendeth up forever and ever and has no end.

(D&C 76:37 – 38) 37 And the only ones on whom the second death shall have any power; 38 Yea, verily, the only ones who shall not be redeemed in the due time of the Lord, after the sufferings of his wrath.

Those who are filthy still suffer eternal punishment.

(D&C 76:44 – 46) 44 Wherefore, he saves all except them — they shall go away into everlasting punishment, which is endless punishment, which is eternal punishment, to reign with the devil and his angels in eternity, where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched, which is their torment — 45 And the end thereof, neither the place thereof, nor their torment, no man knows; 46 Neither was it revealed, neither is, neither will be revealed unto man, except to them who are made partakers thereof;

(Mosiah 2:33) 33 For behold, there is a wo pronounced upon him who listeth to obey that spirit; for if he listeth to obey him, and remaineth and dieth in his sins, the same drinketh damnation to his own soul; for he receiveth for his wages an everlasting punishment, having transgressed the law of God contrary to his own knowledge.

Only God knows the full extent and limits of Hell.

(D&C 76:47 – 48) 47 Nevertheless, I, the Lord, show it by vision unto many, but straightway shut it up again; 48 Wherefore, the end, the width, the height, the depth, and the misery. thereof, they understand not, neither any man except those who are ordained unto this condemnation.

1/3 Part of the Sun, Moon and Stars Darkened

The telestial and the sons of perdition experience darkness in their kingdom.

image47.jpeg(Revelation 8:12) 12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

5th Trump:
Every tongue Confess Jesus is the Christ

The three woes occurs twice: 1. the Opening of the 7th seal 2. The sounding of the fifth trump.

(Revelation 11:14) 14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

image48.jpeg(Revelation 8:13) 13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

(D&C 38:6) 6 And even so will I cause the wicked to be kept, that will not hear my voice but harden their hearts, and wo, wo, wo, is their doom.

Peter has the honor of declaring both the beginning and the end of the Hour of Judgment. He is the 1st Angel flying through the midst of heaven at Midnight and he sounds the 5th Trump (5th Dispensation). Joseph identifies Peter as the Angel flying through the midst of heaven.

image49.jpeg(D&C 88:103) 103 And another trump shall sound, which is the fifth trump, which is the fifth angel who (at midnight) committeth the everlasting gospel—flying through the midst of heaven, unto all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people;

He sounds his trump and all bow the knee giving glory of God.

(D&C 88:104) 104 And this shall be the sound of his trump, saying to all people, both in heaven and in earth, and that are under the earth — for every ear shall hear it, and every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess, while they hear the sound of the trump, saying: Fear God, and give glory to him who sitteth upon the throne, forever and ever; for the hour of his judgment is come.

(Mosiah 27:31) 31 Yea, every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess before him, Yea, even at the last day, when all men shall stand to be judged of him, then shall they confess that he is God; then shall they confess, who live without God in the world, that the judgment of an everlasting punishment is just upon them; and they shall quake, and tremble, and shrink beneath the glance of his all–searching eye.

(D&C 76:110) 110 And heard the voice of the Lord saying: These all shall bow the knee and every tongue shall confess to him who sits upon the throne forever and ever;

Locust from the Bottomless Pit

Peter the 5th Angel comes down from heaven heaven and opens the bottomless pit.

(Revelation 9:1 – 2) 1 AND the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

I like the idea that Peter is Raphael who binds the wicked Angels/Watchers.

(Book of Enoch) And again the Lord said to Raphael: ‘Bind Azazel hand and foot, and cast him into the darkness: and make an opening in the desert, which is in Dudael, and cast him therein. And place upon him rough and jagged rocks, and cover him with darkness, and let him abide there for ever, and cover his face that he may not see light. And on the day of the great judgement he shall be cast into the fire. And heal the earth which the angels have corrupted, and proclaim the healing of the earth, that they may heal the plague, and that all the children of men may not perish through all the secret things that the Watchers have disclosed and have taught their sons.

The Telestial and Son of Perdition are tormented 5 months by devils described as locusts.

image50.jpeg(Revelation 9:3 – 6) 3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads (Terrestrials are in Zion). 5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. 6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

The king of the bottomless pit is the Christ generation Satan, who is the preparator of hell.

(Revelation 9:11) 11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottom-less pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

(1 Nephi 15:34 – 35) 34 … wherefore there must needs be a place of filthiness prepared for that which is filthy. 35 And there is a place (the bottomless pit) prepared, yea, even that awful hell of which I have spoken, and the devil is the preparator of it;

(2 Nephi 28:23) 23 Yea, they are grasped with death, and hell; and death, and hell, and the devil, and all that have been seized therewith must stand before the throne of God, and be judged according to their works, from whence they must go into the place prepared for them, even a lake of fire and brimstone, which is endless torment.

(2 Nephi 2:18, 29) 18 And because he had fallen from heaven, and had become miserable forever, he sought also the misery of all mankind…. 29 And not choose eternal death, according to the will of the flesh and the evil which is therein, which giveth the spirit of the devil power to captivate, to bring you down to hell, that he may reign over you in his own kingdom.

(2 Nephi 9:9) 9 And our spirits must have become like unto him, and we become devils, angels to a devil, to be shut out from the presence of our God, and to remain with the father of lies, in misery, like unto himself;

Mosiah 26 makes it sound like the Terrestrials will suffer with the telestial and Sons of Perdition.

(Mosiah 26:25 – 27) 25 And it shall come to pass that when (or after) the second trump shall sound then shall they that never knew me come forth and shall stand before me. 26 And then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, that I am their Redeemer; but they would not be redeemed. 27 And then I will confess unto them that I never knew them; and they shall depart into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels.

6th Trump: Babylon is fallen, is fallen

The real Babylon is the Church of the Devil, the tares of the earth. The real Babylon is made up of the Telestial and Sons of Perdition. They are that great church the mother of abominations, the tares of the earth.

image4.gif(D&C 88:105) 105 And again, another angel shall sound his trump, which is the sixth angel, saying: She is fallen who made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication; she is fallen, is fallen!

(D&C 29:21) 21 And the great and abominable church, which is the whore of all the earth, shall be cast down by devouring fire, according as it is spoken by the mouth of Ezekiel the prophet, who spoke of these things, which have not come to pass but surely must, as I live, for abominations shall not reign.

(Matthew 13:38 – 40) 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one: 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of the world.

(Matthew 23:31 – 33) 31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

(D&C 88:94) 94 And another angel shall sound his trump, saying: That great church, the mother of abominations, that made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, that persecuteth the saints of God, that shed their blood — she who sitteth upon many waters, and upon the islands of the sea — behold, she is the tares of the earth; she is bound in bundles; her bands are made strong, no man can loose them; therefore, she is ready to be burned.

The fall of Babylon is the casting of the Telestial and Sons of Perdition into hell.

(D&C 76:84 – 85) 84 These are they who are thrust down to hell. 85 These are they who shall not be redeemed from the devil until the last resurrection, until the Lord, even Christ the Lamb, shall have finished his work.

This is not the fall of Mystery Babylon, that took place at the Opening of the 2nd Seal.

(Revelation 17:3 – 6) 3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

Joseph as the greatest and last prophet heading the last dispensation is the 6th Angel and is the reason that he said if he told the brethren who he really was, they would kill him.

(Life of Heber C. Kimball Pg 322) Would to God, brethren, I could tell you who I am: Would to God I could tell you what I know! But you would call it blasphemy, and there are men upon this stand who would call it blasphemy, and there are men upon this stand who would want to take my life.

(Charles Ora Card Diary, Pg 386, 8 October 1882) At the close of the fore noon meeting Apostle Erastus Snow said when they were convened in the Kirtland Temple there was a young man wrought upon by the spirit of prophecy & foretold that the prophet Jos Smith would be the Sixth angel.

1/3 Part of Man Killed

John gives us a very apocalyptic description of the 2nd death of the Telestial and the Sons of Perdition. He describes a 200 million man army that slays 1/3 part of men which is mistakenly believed by many to be a description of Armageddon when the Anti-Christ sweeps down and lays Israel waste.

(Revelation 9:13 – 19) 13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. 16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. 17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. 18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. 19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.

The Third Part of Man indicates Satan, his Angels, and the Sons of Perdition.

image51.jpeg(Revelation 12:3 – 4) 3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth:

(D&C 29:36 – 37) 36 And it came to pass that Adam, being tempted of the devil—for, behold, the devil was before Adam, for he rebelled against me, saying, Give me thine honor, which is my power; and also a third part of the hosts of heaven turned he away from me because of their agency; 37 And they were thrust down, and thus came the devil and his angels;

(D&C 76:30 – 33) 30 And we saw a vision of the sufferings of those with whom he made war and overcame, for thus came the voice of the Lord unto us: 31 Thus saith the Lord concerning all those who know my power, and have been made partakers thereof, and suffered themselves through the power of the devil to be overcome, and to deny the truth and defy my power — 32 They are they who are the sons of perdition, of whom I say that it had been better for them never to have been born; 33 For they are vessels of wrath, doomed to suffer the wrath of God, with the devil and his angels in eternity;

(Discourses of Brigham Young) I do not think it took long to cast down one-third of the hosts of heaven, as it is written in the Bible. But let me tell you that it was one-third part of the spirits who were prepared to take tabernacles upon this earth, and who rebelled against the other two-thirds of the heavenly host

(3 Nephi 28:32) 32 But behold, it sorroweth me because of the fourth generation from this generation, for they are led away captive by him even as was the son of perdition; for they will sell me for silver and for gold, and for that which moth doth corrupt and which thieves can break through and steal. And in that day will I visit them, even in turning their works upon their own heads.

(3 Nephi 29:7) 7 Yea, and wo unto him that shall say at that day, to get gain, that there can be no miracle wrought by Jesus Christ; for he that doeth this shall become like unto the son of perdition, for whom there was no mercy, according to the word of Christ!

7th Trump: It is finished!
7th Angel is Our Father Adam,
Ancient of Days / Michael the Arch Angel

Michael is the only one who is specifically identified by name as one of the 7 angels.

image52.jpeg(D&C 88:112) 112 And Michael, the seventh angel, even the archangel, shall gather together his armies, even the hosts of heaven.

(D&C 88:106) 106 And again, another angel shall sound his trump, which is the seventh angel, saying: It is finished; it is finished! The Lamb of God hath overcome and trodden the wine–press alone, even the wine–press of the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God.

Adam-Ondi-Ahman: The Council

Daniel gives a very short but effective description of the Council at Adam-Ondi-Ahman.

image53.jpeg(Daniel 7:13 – 14) 13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven (at Adam-Ondi-Ahman), and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. 14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

The purpose of Adam-Ondi-Ahman is to prepare the Elect for the 2nd Coming of Christ.

(HC 3:386) Daniel in his seventh chapter speaks of the Ancient of Days; he means the oldest man, our father Adam, Michael, he will call his children together and hold a council with them to prepare them for the (2nd) coming of the Son of Man. He (Adam) is the father of the human family, and presides over the spirits of all men, and all that have had the keys must stand before him in this grand council. …. The Son of Man stands before him, and there is given him glory and dominion. Adam delivers up his stewardship to Christ, that which was delivered to him as holding the keys of the universe, but retains his standing as head of the human family.

At the great council we will drink a sacrament of wine from the Tree of Life.

image54.jpeg(D&C 27:5, 11 – 14) 5 Behold, this is wisdom in me; wherefore, marvel not, for the hour cometh that I will drink of the fruit of the vine with you on the earth, and with Moroni,…. 11 also with Michael, or Adam, the father of all, the prince of all, the ancient of days; 12 And also with Peter, and James, and John, … 14 And also with all those (144,000) whom my Father hath given me out of the world.

(ogdenkraut.com, Joseph Smith) The world cannot know of it. The Saints cannot know of it—except those who officially shall be called into this council—for it shall precede the coming of Jesus Christ as a thief in the night unbeknown to all the world. At Adam-ondi-Ahman we will all partake of the Sacrament of the Lords Supper together.

All Celestial beings will be at the great council at Adam-Ondi-Ahman. Enoch and his 144,000, who are the angels, will be crowned with the glory of his might.

(D&C 88:107) 107 And then shall the angels be crowned with the glory of his might,

The Wise Gentile Saints are prepared for the 2nd Coming by being made equal with him.

(D&C 88:107) … and the saints shall be filled with his glory, and receive their inheritance and be made equal with him.

(D&C 76:54 – 59) 54 They are they who are the church of the Firstborn. 55 They are they into whose hands the Father has given all things — 56 They are they who are priests and kings, who have received of his fulness, and of his glory; 57 And are priests of the Most High, after the order of Melchizedek, which was after the order of Enoch, which was after the order of the Only Begotten Son. 58 Wherefore, as it is written, they are gods, even the sons of God — 59 Wherefore, all things are theirs, whether life or death, or things present, or things to come, all are theirs and they are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.

(D&C 76:66 – 68) 66 These are they who are come unto Mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly place, the holiest of all. 67 These are they who have come to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of Enoch, and of the Firstborn. 68 These are they whose names are written in heaven, where God and Christ are the judge of all.

They see as they are seen, and know as they are known, they are Celestial Composite beings.

(D&C 76:94 – 95) 94 They who dwell in his presence are the church of the Firstborn; and they see as they are seen, and know as they are known, having received of his fulness and of his grace; 95 And he makes them equal in power, and in might, and in dominion.

(1 John 3:2) 2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

The Judgment Bar of Christ

The Judgment seat or bar of Christ occurs during the beginning of the 7th thousand years.

(Romans 14:10 – 12) 10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. 11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

image55.jpeg(Alma 11:44) 44 Now, this restoration shall come to all, both old and young, both bond and free, both male and female, both the wicked and the righteous; and even there shall not so much as a hair of their heads be lost; but every thing shall be restored to its perfect frame, as it is now, or in the body, and shall be brought and be arraigned before the bar of Christ the Son, and God the Father, and the Holy Spirit, which is one Eternal God, to be judged according to their works, whether they be good or whether they be evil.

(Alma 12:12) 12 And Amulek hath spoken plainly concerning death, and being raised from this mortality to a state of immortality, and being brought before the bar of God, to be judged according to our works.

(Mormon 3:20) 20 And these things doth the Spirit manifest unto me; therefore I write unto you all. And for this cause I write unto you, that ye may know that ye must all stand before the judgment–seat of Christ, yea, every soul who belongs to the whole human family of Adam; and ye must stand to be judged of your works, whether they be good or evil;

(Mormon 6:21) 21 And the day soon cometh that your mortal must put on immortality, and these bodies which are now moldering in corruption must soon become incorruptible bodies; and then ye must stand before the judgment–seat of Christ, to be judged according to your works; and if it so be that ye are righteous, then are ye blessed with your fathers who have gone before you.

(Mosiah 16:10 – 11) 10 Even this mortal shall put on immortality, and this corruption shall put on incorruption, and shall be brought to stand before the bar of God, to be judged of him according to their works whether they be good or whether they be evil — 11 If they be good, to the resurrection of endless life and happiness; and if they be evil, to the resurrection of endless damnation, being delivered up to the devil, who hath subjected them, which is damnation—

(Alma 5:14 – 15) 14 And now behold, I ask of you, my brethren of the church, have ye spiritually been born of God? Have ye received his image in your countenances? Have ye experienced this mighty change (of fire and the Holy Ghost) in your hearts? 15 Do ye exercise faith in the redemption of him who created you? Do you look forward with an eye of faith, and view this mortal body raised in immortality, and this corruption raised in incorruption, to stand before God to be judged according to the deeds which have been done in the mortal body?

The Seven Angels Sound their Trumps Again

The very last event is the sounding of the seven trumps again revealing the secret acts of men, the thoughts and intents of their hearts. Revelation calls this the seven thunders. This is the methodology that God uses for everyone to make an account before God.

image56.jpeg(D&C 88:108 – 110) 108 And then shall the first angel again sound his trump in the ears of all living, and reveal the secret acts of men, and the mighty works of God in the first thousand years. 109 And then shall the second angel sound his trump, and reveal the secret acts of men, and the thoughts and intents of their hearts, and the mighty works of God in the second thousand years — 110 And so on, until the seventh angel shall sound his trump;

(Revelation 10:1 – 4) 1 AND I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: 2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, 3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. 4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.

(Matthew 12:36 – 37) 36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

(Hebrews 4:12 – 13) 12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

(D&C 33:1) 1 BEHOLD, I say unto you, my servants Ezra and Northrop, open ye your ears and hearken to the voice of the Lord your God, whose word is quick and powerful, sharper than a two-edged sword, to the dividing asunder of the joints and marrow, soul and spirit; and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

(Mosiah 5:13) 13 For how knoweth a man the master whom he has not served, and who is a stranger unto him, and is far from the thoughts and intents of his heart?

(D&C 6:16) 16 Yea, I tell thee, that thou mayest know that there is none else save God that knowest thy thoughts and the intents of thy heart.

(Moroni 7:6) 6 For behold, God hath said a man being evil cannot do that which is good; for if he offereth a gift, or prayeth unto God, except he shall do it with real intent it profiteth him nothing.

No Man Knoweth not even the Angels

2nd Coming of Christ

Telestial Time No Longer

The end of the Earth takes place at the end of 42 years of the Hour of Judgment but since the beginning date (Midnight) is a guess the end date 2057 is also a guess. 2015 + 42 = 2057. Besides Matthew tells us that only the Father knows exactly when the end of the earth is.

(Matthew 24:35 – 36) 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36 ¶ But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

This is when Father Adam stands on the earth and sea and declares there shall be time no longer.

image57.jpeg(D&C 88:110) 110 And so on, until the seventh angel shall sound his trump; and he shall stand forth upon the land and upon the sea, and swear in the name of him who sitteth upon the throne, that there shall be time no longer; and Satan shall be bound, that old serpent, who is called the devil, and shall not be loosed for the space of a thousand years.

(Revelation 10:6) 6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be (Telestial) time no longer:

The Two Great Cities are Raptured

The New Jerusalem is caught up into heaven, which is the Old Millennial heaven, the same place that the City of Enoch had been hanging out for thousands of years. Ether doesn’t describe the Rapture of the cities to the Old Millennial Earth, just the return trip to this earth.

(Ether 13:10) 10 And then cometh the New Jerusalem; and blessed are they who dwell therein, for it is they whose garments are white through the blood of the Lamb; and they are they who are numbered among the remnant of the seed of Joseph, who were of the house of Israel.

This great city has two centers: the New Jerusalem and Nauvoo the greatest city of the World.

(Nauvoo Discourses) Afterwards read the parable of the 12 olive trees and said speaking of the Land of Zion It consists of all N. & S America but that any place where the Saints gather is Zion which every righteous man will build up for a place of safety for his children.

(Teachings Pg 362) You know there has been great discussion in relation to Zion–where it is, and where the gathering of the dispensation is, and which I am now going to tell you. The prophets have spoken and written upon it; but I will make a proclamation that will cover a broader ground. The whole of America is Zion itself from north to south, and is described by the Prophets, who declare that it is the Zion where the mountain of the Lord should be, and that it should be in the center of the land. When Elders shall take up and examine the old prophecies in the Bible, they will see it.

The Jerusalem of Old also has two centers: The Kirtland Jerusalem and the Ezekiel Jerusalem.

(Ether 13:11) 11 And then also cometh the Jerusalem of old; and the inhabitants thereof, blessed are they, for they have been washed in the blood of the Lamb; and they are they who were scattered and gathered in from the four quarters of the earth, and from the north countries, and are partakers of the fulfilling of the covenant which God made with their father, Abraham.

This is when the Terrestrial receive the fulness of their glory.

(D&C 88:30) 30 And they who are quickened by a portion of the terrestrial glory shall then receive of the same, even a fulness.

Who is raised up to meet Christ in the clouds?

(D&C 76:102) 102 Last of all, these all are they who will not be gathered with the saints, to be caught up unto the church of the Firstborn, and received into the cloud.

(Nauvoo Discourses 29 September 1839 at the old Log House) Explained concerning the coming of the Son of Man &c that all will be raised to meet him, but the righteous will remain with him in the cloud whilst all the proud and all that do wickedly will have to return to the earth and suffer his vengeance which he will take upon them this is the second death &c

The Great Revelation Transfigures the Earth

This great revelation is what makes the new heaven and the new earth. The description is similar to the Sign of the Son of Man which would be the 3rd time the temple in heaven is seen by mankind.

image58.jpeg(D&C 101:22 – 25) 22 Behold, it is my will, that all they who call on my name, and worship me according to mine everlasting gospel, should gather together, and stand in holy places; 23 And prepare for the revelation which is to come, when the veil of the covering of my temple, in my tabernacle, which hideth the earth, shall be taken off, and all flesh shall see me together. 24 And every corruptible thing, both of man, or of the beasts of the field, or of the fowls of the heavens, or of the fish of the sea, that dwells upon all the face of the earth, shall be consumed; 25 And also that of element shall melt with fervent heat; and all things shall become new, that my knowledge and glory may dwell upon all the earth.

This experience is also described as the day of transfiguration.

(D&C 63:20 – 21) 20 Nevertheless, he that endureth in faith and doeth my will, the same shall over- come, and shall receive an inheritance upon the earth when the day of transfiguration shall come; 21 When the earth shall be transfigured, even according to the pattern which was shown unto mine apostles upon the mount; of which account the fulness ye have not yet received.

The full revelation of the Sign of the Son of Man fulfills Malachi’s prophecy.

(Malachi 4:1) 1 FOR, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

This is when the Pavillion that covereth the hiding place of God is taken away.

(D&C 121:1, 4) 1 O GOD, where art thou? And where is the pavilion that covereth thy hiding place? … 4 O Lord God Almighty, maker of heaven, earth, and seas, and of all things that in them are, and who controllest and subjectest the devil, and the dark and benighted dominion of Sheol — stretch forth thy hand; let thine eye pierce; let thy pavilion be taken up; let thy hiding place no longer be covered; let thine ear be inclined; let thine heart be softened, and thy bowels moved with compassion toward us.

All Telestial matter will be totally destroyed from off the face of the earth.

(2 Peter 3:10 – 12) 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

(D&C 45:22) 22 Ye say that ye know that the end of the world cometh; ye say also that ye know that the heavens and the earth shall pass away;

(D&C 124:8) 8 And that I may visit them in the day of visitation, when I shall unveil the face of my covering, to appoint the portion of the oppressor among hypocrites, where there is gnashing of teeth, if they reject my servants and my testimony which I have revealed unto them.

(3 Nephi 26:3) 3 And he did expound all things, even from the beginning until the time that he should come in his glory—yea, even all things which should come upon the face of the earth, even until the elements should melt with fervent heat, and the earth should be wrapt together as a scroll, and the heavens and the earth should pass away;

(Isaiah 51:6) 6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

The Tares are Burned

The Tares, Telestial, and Sons of Perdition will remain on the earth and be burned up with unquenchable fire.

image59.jpeg(D&C 38:12) 12 Which causeth silence to reign, and all eternity is pained, and the angels are waiting the great command to reap down the earth, to gather the tares that they may be burned; and, behold, the enemy is combined.

(D&C 86:7) 7 Therefore, let the wheat and the tares grow together until the harvest is fully ripe; then ye shall first gather out the wheat from among the tares, and after the gathering of the wheat, Behold and lo, the tares are bound in bundles, and the field remaineth to be burned.

(Matthew 13:38 – 40) 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

(D&C 88:94) 94 And another angel shall sound his trump, saying: That great church, the mother of abominations, that made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, that persecuteth the saints of God, that shed their blood — she who sitteth upon many waters, and upon the islands of the sea — behold, she is the tares of the earth; she is bound in bundles; her bands are made strong, no man can loose them; therefore, she is ready to be burned.

(D&C 101:66) 66 While the tares shall be bound in bundles, and their bands made strong, that they may be burned with unquenchable fire.

The face of the earth will melt with fervent heat.

(D&C 101:25) 25 And also that of element shall melt with fervent heat; and all things shall become new, that my knowledge and glory may dwell upon all the earth.

(universetoday.com) While the temperature on Mercury can reach 465 C (869 F), it can also drop to frigid temperatures of -184 C.

(volcano.oregonstate.edu) The temperatures of lavas vary depending on their chemical composition. Hawaiian lava (basalt) is usually around 1100 C (2012 F). Vocanoes such as Mt St. Helens erupt lava that are around 800 C (1472 F).

The Sons of Perdition and the Telestial spirits cannot be destroyed and will continue on this earth and suffer in fire and brimstone.

(Revelation 19:20) 20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

(Revelation 20:10) 10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

(Jacob 6:10) 10 And according to the power of justice, for justice cannot be denied, ye must go away into that lake of fire and brimstone, whose flames are unquenchable, and whose smoke ascendeth up forever and ever, which lake of fire and brimstone is endless torment.

(Alma 12:16 – 17) 16 And now behold, I say unto you then cometh a death, even a second death, which is a spiritual death; then is a time that whosoever dieth in his sins, as to a temporal death, shall also die a spiritual death; yea, he shall die as to things pertaining unto righteousness. 17 Then is the time when their torments shall be as a lake of fire and brimstone, whose flame ascendeth up forever and ever; and then is the time that they shall be chained down to an everlasting destruction, according to the power and captivity of Satan, he having subjected them according to his will.
