If I Were a Prophet pt. 3 “If I were a prophet…”

If I were a prophet, I would quote Section 29 and explain that God’s elect must be gathered to ONE place before the great tribulation goes forth.

If I were a prophet, I would claim to have no authority to gather God’s people, that the gathering will be under the direction of the First Elders of the church, who must return from the dead to complete their missions.

If I were a prophet, I would tell everyone to be watching and waiting for the return of the Lord’s servants, the First Elders, to whom Section 29, 84, and 88 are written to.

If I were a prophet, I would explain that the endowment is the baptism of fire, the High Priesthood, not a ceremony.

Furthermore, I would explain that God’s people must go to Kirtland, Ohio to receive the endowment.

If I were a prophet, I would prophecy that the 144,000 will be sealed to the High Priesthood in Kirtland,Ohio, and that they will give the final warning to all nations.

If I were a prophet, I would tell you that the Lord has not yet set his hand again the second time. I would tell you that this happens only once the Lord has made bare his holy arm. I would expound that the Lord’s arm is Joseph Smith; and that he is the one to gather the people and put the Marvelous Work into motion.

Once the Marvelous Work gathers the elect from the four quarters of the earth to Nauvoo, they will be caught up into the air to be with the Lord.

The earth will then be consumed with fire.

After this, the New Jerusalem will come down from heaven and build up the waste places of Missouri, and build Zion for the millennium.


But I am not a prophet.

I could be wrong, could be right.

There are billions of people on the earth. I would be hard-pressed to find five people that agree with the above statements.

Nevertheless, they are what I believe.

I really wish Mormonism was not true, and I could live a normal Christian life, but this is the light I have received.

If I reject further light, the light I have will be taken from me. (Alma 12; D&C 1)

So I continue to wait.

I have put my faith in the word of God. This is where it has lead me.

I have no church, no friends, no family, that think the same.

For now, I stand alone. All I have is faith that God’s word will come to pass.

  1. You’re not alone, I for one agree totally with several of your statements and I agree in principle with all of your statements.


  2. Yes, I believe most, if not all of this, as well. I always look forward to your posts, along with Watcher’s and Searcher’s. We are a very few who believe this and it feels very lonely sometimes. There are not many I can talk to about these things in my LDS home. I have Fibromyalgia and don’t leave the house much anymore.

    I’ve been really struggling with trying to be more Christ-like and keep the Commandments now that I understand the true Gospel. It is really hard when I have nothing to give to the poor and I never really interact with anyone other than family. I think this makes me the poor, LOL. I still want to become more of a disciple and strive for that future baptism of fire when Joseph returns, though.

    I’ve mostly been focusing on my faith in hopes of one day being healed. Then I can actually DO something again. Anyway, that was a lot to dump out all of a sudden. LOL

    I look forward to your next post. 🙂


  3. I too have felt very lonely at times. These blogs posts have helped keep things in perspective.

    Please note I am endorsing only the main points of each post, not the author or other content.

    I have also realized that this loneliness is an important part of the process. How else would we seek the only source of true comfort, if the arm of the flesh is providing that love/friendship?


  4.  1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
     2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,
     3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
     4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
     5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.


    1. Great post G.azelem. I also agree with much of what you say. And watcher I was actually just thinking recently that I often feel like Elijah, and I had forgotten that Paul mentions his story. But there seem to be more of us than we realize who are beginning to awaken to our awful state, and rely on every word which proceeds forth from the mouth of God instead of the arm of flesh.
