Houses of God pt. 6 “Far West”

My views on temples is completely different than that of nearly anyone.

I have determined that there are three types of houses of God. I’ve classified them as such:

House of God

House/Temple of God

Temple of God.

Read the series to understand how I came to these conclusions.

Houses of God pt. 1 “The Fulness of the Gospel”

In my opinion I have proven (though I changed no one’s mind) that it was the Nauvoo HOUSE that needed to be built in time before the church was rejected, and not the Nauvoo Temple.

I believe this is important, because Denver Snuffer is building a temple and not a house when a house needs to first be built in order to receive the fulness of the priesthood.

I reached out to Snufferites to challenge me, and none did.

The Anarchist of https://ldsanarchy.wordpress.com/ however took me for a fool.

He believes my contention to be laughable.

He also believes that the Nauvoo Temple was accepted by God.

I find THAT laughable. He thinks that an unfinished temple was enough to appease God.

This is what the Lord says about his houses:

Let them from that time forth labor diligently until it shall be finished, from the cornerstone thereof unto the top thereof, until there shall not anything remain that is not finished.

-Section 115:12

So to me it sounds like God isn’t interested in unfinished temples.

Joseph Smith said this: “Don’t deny revelation. If the Temple and Nauvoo House are not finished, you must run away. Our salvation depends on it.”

The Nauvoo Temple was not finished. The historical record PROVES THAT.

This is what Brigham Young said in admittance:

I met with the Council of the Twelve in the southeast corner room of the attic of the Temple. We knelt around the altar, and dedicated the building to the Most High. We asked his blessing upon our intended move to the west; also asking him to enable us some day to finish the Temple, and dedicate it to him, and we would leave it in his hands to do as he pleased; and to preserve the building as a monument to Joseph Smith. We asked the Lord to accept the labors of his servants in this land. We then left the Temple.”

Immediately after Brigham’s prayer, the temple caught fire and went up in flames.

This happened in 1846.

Even by then, they never finished the freaking temple…

The historical record shows that the apostles built a masonic temple and built themselves expensive brick houses during the time in which they should have put all efforts into the Nauvoo House and Temple.

The Nauvoo Temple was never accepted by God.

That should be sufficient to prove that the church was rejected by God by this time.

I take it a step further and say the church was rejected by 1842. I also take it another step further and say that the Nauvoo House was what was being commanded of God to build during that appointed time in Nauvoo.

My ideas make things more complicated and harder for people to digest, but they are nonetheless true. All my ideas support the fact that the masonic endowment and polygamy were ploys of Satan. My conclusions let everything fall into their proper place.

I also believe that the Nauvoo Temple was defiled by its occult symbols as well as the Moroni statue. The Kirtland House/Temple, which was accepted by God, had none of that.

*

Now with all of this mind, in regards to Far West I want to mention something I’m suspecting about Section 115.

I believe that in order to understand the D&C we have to remove ourselves from the historical context of each revelation.

For instance:

The Saints believed Section 124 was referring to the Nauvoo Temple– because that’s where they were doing baptisms for the dead– and the Saints believed Section 84 was referring to the temple in Missouri, not the Kirtland House/Temple.

We have to mystically observe God’s word without using the hindsight of an apostate church!

Section 115 gives the commandment to build a House in Far West–

Or does it?

I believe Section 115 was never meant to have anything to do with Far West.

Perhaps Joseph and the Saints believed it was, but I believe it was a foreshadowing of the future.

This is speculative, and I don’t really feel like explaining it. I can’t even get people to believe anything else I’ve written about temples! Email me and I’ll entertain you:

theworkofthefather37 @ gmail . com

This is the last I will write in this series.

Perhaps I will write a part seven when I receive word that we must go to the Kirtland House/Temple for the solemn assembly as part of the marvelous work and a wonder….

Until then, yours truly:

False Prophets pt. 4 “The Mormon Blogosphere”

Recently, I came across a passage in the New Testament, one which has truly come to reflect our current-day situation:

There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.” 1 Cor 14:10

Right now there are many voices in the world. So many different opinions about Mormonism– each with their own slant on what is happening.

They are all significant.

Even if they are wrong, they are still significant.

This post is about all the Mormon blogs I follow, and my thoughts pertaining to each.

  1. http://puremormonism.blogspot.ca/

This has probably been my favorite blog over the past few years. It’s written by a very humble follower of Christ, someone by the name of Rock Waterman. His latest piece, however, is what inspired me to begin a review of his work, as well as others like him.

His latest piece is called, “On the High Road to Apostasy” which highlights many reasons why the LDS church is… well, on a high road to apostasy.

Everything in his post is correct. But this is what he’s been saying for 5+ years!

The LDS church is still his focal point. During his excommunication, Rock was shocked by what was happening. It took him by total surprise that they ex’d him in such an unsound and unscriptural manner.

But if the church is in apostasy, of course they aren’t going to be following the scriptures! He has been ex’d for over a year now, yet he still writes about the LDS church…

Nothing can be done about the church. Its bed has been made. This is the failing of Pure Mormonism.

Once you understand the prophetic events that are about to take place, the LDS church takes a backseat. Being excommunicated should be an eye-opener, a blessing, not a conondrum.

Rock is a wonderful man, and I love how valiant he has been in his search for truth. I believe that he will accept True Prophets when they arrive on scene. The only thing that stands between him and God is Denver Snuffer.

  1. http://www.totheremnant.com/

This is an incredible blog. Believe it or not, I have learned a lot from Adrian Larsen’s writings. He focuses on the scriptures and digs up hidden truths that everyone else seems to bypass.

His wife gave a talk at the Denver Snuffer Doctrine Conference; and it was awesome to discover that she is just as sharp as her husband, in some ways even more so. Her talk in fact brought tears to my eyes.

[update: I was informed by the author of To The Remnant, that the speaker at the Doctrine of Christ conference was not his [Adrian Larsen’s] wife, but his brother’s.]

These two are deeply commited to the cause of Christ, and have the best intentions of any.

How the Larsen’s happen to believe in Denver Snuffer as a prophet is not a huge shocker. Denver’s message appeals to the pure in heart– to those that truly want to live a Christ-like life.

Forget the church, follow Christ.”

This is the right message. And this is what attracts people to Denver Snuffer. However, Denver’s ministry is not in accordance to scriptural prophecy. That’s what makes him a danger to people’s salvation.

There are people who hold the belief that they can live the fulness of the gospel– as taught by DS. This is incorrect.

The fulness is not on the earth– and so long as people believe they are living it, this will become a huge stumbling-block.

This is a fascinating blog. The Anarchist is one of the most colorful personalities in Mormondom. He claims to be a prophet. Has many revelations, dreams, visions etc. all of which I find very fascinating.

Every post of his I am excited to read. He is full of light and truth. However, he happens to also be deceived on a number of issues.

In some areas of the scriptures, he is light years ahead of most. But like the Larsen’s, he has stumbling-blocks of his own.

He believes that there will be “Josephite” prophet from Lehi’s seed, who will be the major player in the last days. The Anarchist believes that this guy is the one mighty and strong who will gather the tribes of Israel and bring about Zion.

His failure to rethink this will prevent him from further understanding.

Because he considers himself a prophet, his beliefs are “revelations” that came from God. Because of this, he finds himself in no position to doubt or question those revelations. He has to stay true to his spiritual experiences which are what sustain his journey of faith.

Like those caught up in the grand delusion of the LDS church, the Anarchist must also recognize he has been deceived the same way all of us have been led astray.

Just as Mormons must discard their spirtual experiences that “the church is true” the Anarchist must discard his own.

Every single one of us has been deceived, and will continue to be to deceived until the fulness of the priesthood returns to the earth. However, the Anarchist has lots to offer, and I highly recommend reading through his writings.

  1. http://greatandmarvelouswork.com/

There seems to be multiple authors who contribute to this blog. It contains very similar information that I, Watcher, and Searcher, have highlited on our blogs. [ https://onewhoiswatching.wordpress.com/https://onewhoissearching.com/ ]

The biggest difference between this blog and the three of ours is the rejection of the Doctrine and Covenants.

The authors of “The Great and Marvelous Work” have been influenced by the writings of David Whitmer. Like Whitmer, they have concluded that Joseph Smith was commanded by God to only bring forth the Book of Mormon, and that everything else that followed was Joseph going beyond his bounds.

After reading David Whitmer’s “An Address to All Believers in Christ” I can empathize as to why they have made their dire conclusions.

It would make matters very simple to write off the LDS church as a whole.

However, to deny the revelations of Jesus Christ as contained in the D&C is a rejection of God’s word.

This is a big deal.

The Doctrine and Covenants is a very important canon of scripture. It is absolutely indispensible.

  1. http://www.defendingjoseph.com/

Similar to denying the D&C, the author of “In Defense of Joseph” has denied that Joseph was ever involved with the principle of polygamy.

Again, it would make matters very simple to adopt this frame of thought. Oh how great it would be to believe that Joseph was innocent of polygamy…

I, myself, believed this at one point.

There has been much good research done defending this. Richard and Pamela Price, for instance, have done a great job at presenting the case that Brigham Young & others began the practice, not Joseph.

Just as David Whitmer gives a plausible case for the denial of the D&C, there is a plausible case for a monogamist-Joseph Smith.

These are significant voices.

Everyone must study the evidence and prayerfully consider these perspectives.

I am of the belief that one must accept that Joseph stopped abiding in the Lord in order for them to fully understand the secret history of Mormonism. I believe that those who believe him to be innocent are under the influence of a very seductive false spirit.

It feels good to believe that Joseph is innocent.

I understand this, and empathize with those who hold this position. The secular evidence is not entirely conclusive.

My belief that Joseph was guilty of polygamy– comitting treachery against the wife of his youth– is rooted from biblical and modern prophecy pertaining to him.

  1. http://anonymousbishop.com/

This is a site much like Adrian Larsen’s, To The Remnant.

AB has a knack for writing some great stuff. But like Larsen, the Anonymous Bishop is caught up in the Denver delusion. It is very rare that he even makes mention of DS, but he has alluded to him just enough times to make it clear that he DOES believe Denver Snuffer to be a true messenger.

Not only does AB write good articles, the comments sections explode with great discussion, to which I even chime in.

  1. https://zomarah.wordpress.com/

Like the Anonymous Bishop is similar to To the Remnant, this blog is very similar to Pure Mormonism.

Zomarah and Rock continue to insistently write about the LDS church. All of its problems and issues.

The fact of the matter is that there are literally hundreds of problems and none of it is ever going to change.

*

This brings me to the reason I decided to write this post.

I believe that I have the answers to which all of these other voices are seeking, or claim to have found.

I believe I have the missing pieces.

My next post, which will be titled “Mysteries of the Kingdom pt. 3”, will outline exactly what is going to occur in the near future, by detailing where we are in the prophetic timeline, as recorded in the Book of Revelation.

I believe if you have an understanding of prophecy, the problems in the church will become irrelevent to you, same with Denver Snuffer.

[Not only will DS appear irrelevent, but dangerous even.]

Lastly, I want to return back to the original scripture I shared:

There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.” 1 Cor 14:10

Remember that God has ordained all of these conflicting voices, and they all have a very important place.

Rock Waterman opened my eyes to many issues about the LDS church; Denver Snuffer even taught me many things– albeit years ago.

It’s up to each of us to figure out the truth in between all of them.

When the Lord brings again Zion, his watchmen will finally see eye to eye. (Isaiah 52:8) Until then, we must be very, very careful–

because none of us will see on the exact same page until then.

My hope is that my next post will be of great use to those seeking the truth. Even if someone may disagree with everything else I’ve written, I think my next post will be very important regardless.

I don’t mean to sound prideful and arrogant. I don’t have all the answers, and I certainly am no more righteous than the next person.

All I mean to say is that these voices in the Mormon blogosphere are deeply flawed in one way or another.

My next post will prove this.

My next post will provide the keys to avoid being deceived by false prophets– in and out of the LDS church.

I of course challenge anyone who happens to read it to find flaws therein. If I am wrong, I will gladly change my paradigm.

I seek the truth and nothing else. This has nothing to do with me. I have been wrong in my life about nearly everything. I’m not afraid to be wrong again. We must all be humble and willing to rethink our beliefs.
