False Prophets pt. 1 “Denver Snuffer”

D&C 50:2

There are many spirits which are false spirits, which have gone forth in the earth, deceiving the world.

A peculiar quote from Joseph Smith was the idea that every religious tradition has its own distinct spirit that follows it. The Denver Snuffer movement has a very powerful one, and it’s growing stronger and stronger. Evidence for this is found here: http://latterdaywitnesses.com/interview-with-robert-smith-shares-his-life-journey-and-witness-of-christ/

Just as Denver Snuffer saw a false Christ, others are as well now. It used to be only a few individuals, but it’s becoming more and more common. I used to consider DS harmless, but his claims are too bold to continue to ignore. His influence and false-accompanying-spirit is picking up too much traction.

After publishing The Second Comforter, Denver Snuffer has tried to appeal his message to several different groups of people:

First, he went for completely active, Brethren-friendly, LDS members. He did this with his books, “Beloved Enos”, and “Come, Let Us Adore Him.” He was just another LDS member, who happened to have a marvelous experience.

Secondly, he went for Mormons with one foot in the door, and the other on the way out. He released “Removing the Condemnation” and then, of course, “Passing the Heavenly Gift.”

Recently, Denver has apparently reached out to polygamist groups. And now, as of June 29th, 2016, it has been announced– on his website– that the fourth group he will target is, quite simply, Christians.

Denver has in fact unveiled that he has written an entire book designed for mainline Christians. From his site:

The book is an attempt to re-introduce Joseph Smith as an important Christian figure, separate from institutional Mormonism. It is time he became relevant to all Christians, and no longer regarded as the property of Mormonism. The new book should be available on Amazon by early August if anyone is interested.”

Personally, I suspect he will have no such luck in his this endeavour. I believe this for a multiplicity of reasons. I think he is best off appealing to the TBM’s.

Anyone that has ever believed– with all their heart– that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet, is capable of great deception, and is thus susceptible to being deceived once again.

Believers of DS trade crazy for crazy. But the thing is, they are sincere. Yet sincerity has nothing to with the truth. However, they are sincerely trying to follow Christ, which does count for something.

I believe the followers of DS, as well as the followers of some other false prophets, are Terrestrial souls, who belong to Christ at his second coming, even though they were blinded by the craftiness of men. They are Christ’ people– Israel– but they are not of the elect who will be caught up in the cloud.

A DS-inspired blog has itself named “To The Remnant”, which I find ironic, because it truly is a blog for the remnant spoken of in scripture that will be on the earth when Christ and his elect descend to the earth.

The movement of Denver Snuffer has attributed to two great things: the seeing of a false Christ; and a falsely-perceived concept of Joseph Smith.

From ‘To The Remnant’:

Unfortunately, the “saints” stone, cast out, and kill Joseph yet today. Here are some of the ways those who claim to accept Joseph Smith’s mission, instead participate in his assassination:

DS-followers have traded the LDS-church-Joseph for a new Joseph that is just as idealistic and invented!

The truth about Joseph Smith is not easy to grasp. I myself have gone back and forth on to what degree Joseph may have really been innocent of the charges brought against him. I see now that this is a seducing spirit that follows all apostate LDS traditions. Believing in a false Joseph Smith spawns more false beliefs.

In closing, I want to mention what I find most curious about Denver Snuffer. After following his activity for the last three years or so, the most confusing thing to me is his ever-changing thoughts on polygamy and the temple.

The sinking feeling I have is that Denver will bring back polygamy. I think this is bound to occur when he creates his own version of the LDS endowment. After he indoctrinates his followers with new esoteric rituals, there is no telling what may happen.

D&C 50:7

There are hypocrites among you, who have deceived some, which has given the adversary power, but behold such shall be reclaimed.

There is a great many of individuals who have been deceived by the claims of Denver Snuffer, with his false Christ, and seducing spirits. Apparently, such shall be reclaimed. Hopefully, for some at least, this happens in time for them to accept the new and everlasting covenant when it finally returns to the earth. Because Denver Snuffer does not even know what the new and everlasting covenant is, I know that he is a false prophet, and thus can never have seen Christ.

Those that are not reclaimed in time for when the First Elders return to the earth, will be reclaimed at the Second Coming. This is the remnant. They will be sanctified after their pain, which will be brought upon them by the teachings of a false prophet.

  1. G.azelem,

    I am fascinated by your seeming emotional response towards Denver, and others that have claimed to have seen the Savior.

    I agree that some have transferred their hero-worship to him, but I disagree with your claims of the impossibility of seeing the savior (right now). Many people have been instrumental in opening my eyes to our awful situation; Denver Snuffer, Rob Smith, Jake Hilton, John Pontius, even you! While I have not read everything each person has written, each book/blog was brought to my attention in answer to a prayer for further light and knowledge. To say this this has been a difficult path is an understatement.

    Along the way, many verses of scripture, and the testimonies of these men and others, have given me the hope to proceed in seeking after my own Baptism of Fire and face-to-face with Jesus. I have read your theory as to why this cannot be possible (at this time), but I would like to hear how you reconcile other verses that advocate for this possibility.

    D&C 76:74 “Those who receive not the testimony of Jesus in the flesh, but afterwards received it.” Referring to who will receive what level of glory. I read that as: if I don’t gain a visit with the Savior while still in my mortal body, then I will be relegated to the terrestrial world.
    D&C 93:1 “Verily, thus saith the Lord: It shall come to pass that every soul who forsaketh his sins and cometh unto me, and calleth on my name, and obeyeth my voice, and keepeth my commandments, shall see my face and know that I am” There are no exceptions stated.
    Ether 4:7 “And in that day they shall exercise faith in me, saith the Lord, even as the brother of Jared did, that they may become sanctified in me, then will I manifest unto them the things which the brother of Jared saw…” Are you telling me that my faith cannot be strong enough for this?

    • You are certainly right that there is no exceptions to D&C 93:1, which proves my point. Anyone that keeps the commandments will see the face of the Lord. Thing is, no one is keeping the commandments.

      I am not telling you that your faith is not strong enough, the scripture seem to indicate this. If you did have the faith to rend the veil of unbelief, we would have the “greater things” of the Book of Mormon. Those come forth “at that day” that the Gentiles finally do have this faith to fully repent and then live all of God’s commandments.

      Receiving a testimony of Jesus in the flesh is indeed a pre-requisite to entering the celestial kingdom. You are right by saying that, but Section 76 also says that another pre-requisite is the laying on of hands by someone who is ordained and sealed unto that power. Both of these things are necessary.

      Right now we cannot live the fullness of the gospel to be brought back into the Lord’s presence. But just as Joseph saw Alvin in heaven, there is obviously hope for us too. That vision is again relevant. We know that those, “who would have received [the fulness] … shall be heirs of the celestial kingdom of God.” D&C 137

      Lastly, I want to mention that I do think individuals can learn lots while reading DS or Rob Smith etc. Everyone has something to offer.

      Your desire to receive a baptism of fire is righteous. It’s what all of us should be doing. When the servants return to the vineyard with the Lord labouring amongst them (Jacob 5:72), it will again be possible. Thanks for considering this perspective and asking questions.

  2. JST Matthew 5
    21 Whosoever, therefore, shall break one of these least commandments and shall teach men so to do, he shall in no wise be saved in the kingdom of heaven; but whosoever shall do and teach these commandments of the law until it be fulfilled, the same shall be called great and shall be saved in the kingdom of heaven.

    22 For I say unto you, except your righteousness shall exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

    Therefore, why not preach the commandments which you bewail are not being kept? Why not minister the words of Christ, nothing varying, as did the disciples in 3 Nephi 19?

    Why cumber one’s blog with anything else?

    • Log,

      6 ¶My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

      God’s people are destroyed because they have no knowledge.

      All they do is follow their fuzzy little emotions.

      My blog provides the knowledge you will need to live all of the commandments. My blog is nothing but shielding people from falsehoods so that they CAN keep the commandments. I am calling people to repent from all the false traditions that have been handed down to us, and warning others of dangerous false prophets.

      We are in an awful situation, as Moroni told us we would be. I am helping the people who have awakened to it.

      This certainly doesn’t interest a commandment-keeping covenant-swearing person like yourself, does it? Go ahead and build Denver a temple. Make another satanic oath.

      I will wait for the servants to bind up the law of consecration so I can live the law of the gospel.

      You know what the law of the gospel is right?

      It’s pretty important according to the Lord, because he told us this: ” 5 He that receiveth my law and doeth it, the same is my disciple; and he that saith he receiveth it and doeth it not, the same is not my disciple, and shall be cast out from among you;”

      Are you keeping the law of the gospel as contained in Section 42? No! You’re not keeping the commandments, Log. You’re living in ignorance and rejecting God’s word. I’ve seen your comments for the last five years. Why don’t you read Section 42 and RECEIVE IT so that you may prepare yourself for the day when the call will come to live it.

      There’s a reason there’s more to the scriptures than the sermon on the mount and 3rd Nephi–

      Don’t belittle me for taking ALL of God’s words into accord.

      • It becometh every man that hath been warned to warn his neighbor (D&C 88:81).

        The function of priests is to teach the commandments unto the children of men that they may likewise enter into the rest of the Lord (Alma 13).

        The entire duty of man is to fear God and keep his commandments (Eccl. 12:13).

        We are here to be proven to see if we will do all things whatsoever our God commands us (Abr. 3:25).

        Nevertheless, I see you take me for your enemy, and my words taken as an attack (Romans 2:1).

  3. Typical drivel.

    Refusing to respond to anything I’ve said.

    You said, “The function of priests is to teach the commandments unto the children of men that they may likewise enter into the rest of the Lord (Alma 13).”

    That is the function of those who have been ordained to the High Priesthood.

    Nobody holds that priesthood. Not even you. Not even Denver Snuffer.

    We are to preach nothing but faith and repentance.
