And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the Lord’s people were prophets, and that the Lord would put his spirit upon them!
I’ve been doing this blog for nearly a year and a half.
If you haven’t noticed, it hasn’t really taken off.
I have no idea how to run a website. My blog posts are clunky, and I have almost no regular readership.
However, I do get some interesting feedback. I’ve noticed a commonality between those that disagree with my ideas.
—this piece of feedback is something I once heard about Watcher of onewhoiswatching.wordpress.com—
Many are put off of our writing because we never claim revelation. We never talk about the Holy Spirit or the voice of the Lord. We don’t get touchy-feely and work off people’s fuzzy emotions.
We don’t have visions and don’t speak boldly with power and authority.
The reason we don’t do this is because we don’t want to blaspheme the Lord. We know that anyone claiming to hear the voice of the Lord is hearing the voice of Satan and is thus blaspheming the God of heaven.
I heard from multiple sources that Joseph Smith has apparently visited a Snufferite and told them that he (Joseph) was innocent of polygamy.
Damn, I’m jealous. When I prayed about whether or not he was innocent or guilty, all I got was the voice of God. Pft, lame.
“Joseph commited polygamy, but only because he had to.”
That was what I was told, supernaturally, in April of 2014.
I now do not believe that it was God who spoke to me. It was Satan, teaching me truth to put stock into “revelation” so that he could deceive me at a later time.
Some time later, I had a vision of the afterlife comparable to Section 76 which I put into writing. Into “thus saith the Lord” language.
I showed it to missionaries on my mission and they believed it to be the word of God.
They honestly believed I was a prophet.
My mission president was terrified that I was going to start my own church. I honestly could have.
I am good looking and charasmatic. I have a narcistic personallity, which includes dreams of grandiose and being smarter and better than everyone else. I STILL suffer an enlarged perception of my own self-importance.
I am not supposed to be a follower. I’m supposed to be a leader, my mind tells me. The carnal man I am demands respect and admiration.
So my career in religion could have been very lucrative. I could have converted a portion of my mission. I could have convinved many of my prophetic status. I can write “scripture” better than Christopher Nemelka and he’s got a couple hundred deluded followers.
By the grace of God, I saw the light..
Once I began to deny all of my revelations and visions in favor of the redemption of Zion as recorded in Sections 101 and 103, I lost a lot of fandom with the missionaries in my mission.
They weren’t interested in Joseph Smith coming back.
They wanted me to be a prophet.
They wanted me to have visions. They wanted me to be their Daniel and interpret their dreams. Prophecy for them.
On my mission, I learned an important lesson.
People want a prophet. And those that need a prophet will never become prophets themselves.
We who know the words of Christ require no man.
