Which Science?

Make that EIGHT months
The science of health is overwhelmingly against masking, isolation, distancing, lockdown,1 etc., etc., while the science of behavior- and mind-control is obsessively pro-mask, pro-isolation, pro-distancing, pro-lockdown, pro-tyranny.2 Which science is prevailing? Which science* are the Powers promoting? Which, the majority of people obeying?3

How many times must this be repeated before we GET IT?
22 And whatsoever nation shall uphold such secret combinations [like the COVID plandemic narrative with all its MSM fear-mongering and “flood the zone” lies], to get power and gain, until they shall spread over the nation, behold, they shall be destroyed; ...
24 Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you; ...
25 For it cometh to pass that whoso buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the devil, who is the father of all lies; even that same liar who beguiled our first parents, yea, even that same liar who hath caused man to commit murder from the beginning; who hath hardened the hearts of men ...4

Déjà Vu: Ben-hadad*?

Until we acknowledge that the
obsessive pursuit and protection of 
power, gain, and glory has plagued
every age of history, we will never
understand the events of our time.

And what are the unfolding events of our time? In the end, it will entail the conversion of men, women, and children into property. Such has always been the overarching passion of the ever-present Domination System that has always energized the natural man. We can pretend for a little longer that conversion is not happening, but the Powers in every land are already speaking in the 800 B.C. language of Ben-hadad.
And he sent messengers to Ahab king of Israel into the city, and said unto him, Thus saith Ben-hadad, Thy silver and thy gold is mine; thy wives also and thy children, even the goodliest, are mine. And the king of Israel answered and said, My lord, O king, according to thy saying, I am thine, and all that I have. And the messengers came again, and said, Thus speaketh Ben-hadad, saying, Although I have sent unto thee, saying, Thou shalt deliver me thy silver, and thy gold, and thy wives, and thy children; Yet I will send my servants unto thee to morrow about this time, and they shall search thine house, and the houses of thy servants; and it shall be, that whatsoever is pleasant in thine eyes, they shall put it in their hand, and take it away.1
Is this not like unto the 2020 language of The Great Reset? the COVID-19 mandates? Agenda 21 & 2030? (Look them up!) And what has been the majority response, thus far? How many are obedient believers in the pursuers and protectors of power, gain, and glory? masked-up? waiting anxiously for “saving” vaccines? crying out for more rigid controls? demanding greater protection from the selfish “disobedient”?

Where are all the elders, all the people, and a prophet like those that counselled Ahab to resist the conversion?2 

For those who are willing to look beyond the Power narrative that floods the MSM, the satanic conversion (with the witting or unwitting aid of presidents, prime ministers, governors, premiers, other “public servants,” and distracted, deceived believers) is unrolling so rapidly it is stunning.

Consider these witnesses (out of hundreds possible) exposing the frauds and tyrannies that are being rolled out under cover of COVID to facilitate the conversion agenda:

1. Old Testament | 1 Kings 20:2–6
2. Old Testament | 1 Kings 20:8, 13-14 ~ And all the elders and all the people said unto [Ahab], Hearken not unto him, nor consent. ... And, behold, there came a prophet unto Ahab king of Israel, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Hast thou seen all this great multitude? behold, I will deliver it into thine hand this day; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD. And Ahab said, By whom? And he said, Thus saith the LORD, Even by the young men of the princes of the provinces. Then he said, Who shall order the battle? And he answered, Thou.
NOTE: Yes, it was a bloody finale, but they prevailed because they had God and the courage to resist. What are we setting ourselves up for by our acquiescence and inaction?

The Seven Ages of the Church?

How many layers of application might John's Letters to the Seven Churches1 have? After a recent encounter with a 1919 book, there appears to be at least four, being application:
1. to the original seven churches;
2. to individual men and women in every age (including in our capacity as stewards / leaders / servants);
3. to individual congregations;
4. as a prophetic outline of the Church ages from Apostle John to the present day.
I explored application two in a 2011 post titled: Which Church? (Questions for the latter-day believer),2 but this past week I encountered the "prophetic view of the Church" in Rev. Clarence Larkin's 1919 book, The Book of Revelation, wherein he states:
[Revelation] chapters two and three, must be a description or prophetic outline of the "Spiritual History" of the Church from the time when John wrote the Book in A. D. 96, down to the taking out of the Church, or else we have no "prophetic view" of the Church during that period, for she disappears from the earth at the close of chapter three, and is not seen again until she reappears with her Lord in chapter nineteen.3
Larkin describes and dates the seven Church periods / ages as:
I. The Church At Ephesus (A Backslidden Church.) Rev. 2: 1-7.
    70–170 A.D.
II. The Church At Smyrna (A Persecuted Church.) Rev. 2: 8-11.
     170–312 A.D.
III. The Church at Pergamos (A Licentious Church.) Rev. 2: 12-17.
       312–606 A.D.
IV. The Church at Thyatira (A Lax Church.) Rev. 2: 18-29.
       606–1520 A.D.
V. The Church at Sardis (A Dead Church.) Rev. 3: 1-6.
     1520–1750 A.D.
VI. The Church at Philadelphia (A Favored Church.) Rev. 3: 7-13.
       1750–1900 A.D.
VII. The Church at Laodicea (A Lukewarm Church.) Rev. 3: 14-22.
        1900–present A.D.

Larkin further explains and cautions:
This interpretation of the "Messages to the Seven Churches" was hidden to the early Church, because time was required for Church History to develop and be written, so a comparison could be made to reveal the correspondence. If it had been clearly revealed that the Seven Churches stood for "Seven Church Periods" that would have to elapse before Christ could come back, the incentive to watch would have been absent.
While the character of these Seven Churches is descriptive of the Church during seven periods of her history, we must not forget that the condition of those churches, as described, were their exact condition in John's day. So we see that at the close of the First Century the leaven of "False Doctrine" was at work in the Churches. The churches are given in the order named, because the peculiar characteristic of that Church applied to the period of Church History to which it is assigned. It also must not be forgotten, that, that which is a distinctive characteristic of each Church Period, does not disappear with that Period, but continues on down through the next Period, and so on until the end, thus increasing the imperfections of the visible Church, until it ends in an open Apostasy, ..."4
Larkin's observations about all seven ages and their regressive, cumulative nature are thought-provoking and worthy of study. And as we are, allegedly, in Period VII, I include a few of his Period VII observations:
Our churches today are largely in this "lukewarm" condition. There is very little of warm-hearted spirituality. There is much going on in them, but it is largely mechanical and of a social character. Committees, societies, and clubs are multiplied, but there is an absence of "spiritual heat." Revival meetings are held, but instead of waiting on the Lord for power, evangelists and paid singers are hired and soul winning is made a business. The cause of this "lukewarmness" is the same as that of the Church of Laodicea--Self-Deception.5

The Church at Laodicea was not burdened with debt, but it was burdened with WEALTH.6

The trouble with the Church of Laodicea was that its "Gold" was not of the right kind, and so it was counseled to buy of the Lord "gold tried in the fire." What kind of gold is that? It is gold that has no taint upon it. Gold that is not cankered, or secured by fraud, or the withholding of a just wage. What a description we have of these Laodicean days in James 5: 1-4. But the Church of Laodicea was not only poor, though rich, it was blind. Or to put it more accurately--" Near-Sighted." They could see their worldly prosperity, but were "Short-Sighted" as to heavenly things, so the Lord counseled them to anoint their eyes with "Eye-Salve." Their merchants dealt in ointments and herbs of a high degree of healing virtue, but they possessed no salve that would restore impaired Spiritual Vision, only the Unction of the Holy One could do that.7

Then a most startling revelation was made to the Church of Laodicea, Christ said--
"Behold, I Stand at the Door and Knock."
These words are generally quoted as an appeal to sinners, but they are not, they are addressed to a Church, and to a Church in whose midst Christ had once stood, but now found Himself excluded and standing outside knocking for admittance. This is the most startling thing recorded in the New Testament, that it is possible for a church to be outwardly prosperous and yet have no Christ in its midst, and be unconscious of the fact. This is a description of a Christless Church. Oh, the EXCLUDED CHRIST.
Excluded from His own nation, for they Rejected Him; excluded from the world, for it Crucified Him; excluded from His Church, for He stands outside its door Knocking for Entrance. How did Christ come to be outside the Church? He had been within it once or there never would have been a Church. How did He come to leave? It is clear that they had not thrust Him out, for they do not seem to have missed His presence. They continued to worship Him, to sing His praises, and engage in all manner of Christian service, yet He had withdrawn. Why? The reason is summed up in one word--Worldliness.
But how is Christ to get back into His Church? Does it require the unanimous vote or invitation of the membership? No. "If any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me." That is the way to revive a lukewarm church is for the individual members to open their hearts and let Christ re-enter, and thus open the door for His reappearance. The character of the Church today is Laodicean, and as the Laodicean Period is to continue until the Church of the "New-Born" is taken out, we cannot hope for any great change until the Lord comes back.8
Could there be anything in Larkin's 1919 observations to provoke our 2020 self-reflection? our self-awareness? our repentance?

All bold emphasis has been added.

A Way Forward?

Moving forward
on target; on point

(A Call to Action)
Therefore, I, the Lord, justify you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land; And as pertaining to law of man, whatsoever is more or less than this, cometh of evil.1
So who is befriending the Constitution and its principles? Who is exposing the “more” that is destroying rights and freedoms? Who is calling for accountability for the evil that is rolling like a worldwide tsunami of destruction?

Thankfully, a few good people2 are rising up with options but we will not hear about them from the (bought-and-paid-for) MSM or the gainsaying-of-truth “authorities.”

There is a man, Christopher James, who has collected / catalogued the witness of many truth tellers3 who are being censored and maligned because they were gainsaying the authorities, the power-brokers, the profiteers.4 But this man has also conceived a way forward out of the abyss that we have fallen into by believing the lying wonders5 of the servitors of a Domination System (a term he does not yet use, but that I do); a Domination System that has now perfected its opportunities for total world control thru co-opted, corrupted science and technology.

Christopher James is not the first man to investigate this great fraud perpetuated on people all over the world, but he has devised and begun a plan of action that will expose the fraud and collapse the (IL)Legal, (Un)Civil System upon itself.

The Domination System has, in secret, converted people into property that can be ordered about, managed, and commercialized at the will of the Domination System. Service Corporations of all kinds (including local and state governments) have converted themselves into masters with one-sided Terms of Service agreements, regulations, orders, demands, and on and on. Much of the fraudulent conversion seems unbelievable, but consider our present world, where quarantine, masking, distancing, gathering, no singing, vaccination are all being mandated as if people were property owned by someone or something. Have we not already been warned that in the last days, the souls of men [and women] would be just one more commodity for the merchants of the world?6

Let us open out minds, hearts, and resources to investigate and support this warrior's global call to and action for freedom and accountability. Although the initiative was begun in Canada, it is generating worldwide off-shoots.

Addendum 26 Oct. 2020: As always, we must proceed with discernment per some of the above assertions, BUT the science and history of power (of the ubiquitous Domination System) and its obsession with converting humans into property has been manifest in every age. Domination is exactly what is happening in this 2020 crisis. People are being treated as property – ordered about as if livestock. WE are not livestock. We are men and women with inalienable rights, but in this corruption, service corporations (created by men and women) have converted themselves into masters with indentured enforcers. That is what we MUST reverse, and this “common law” trespass approach appears, at this time, to be the best (perhaps only) and most rapid possibility for reversal. Listen to this:
Small Business Owners Unite and Fight Back! Christopher James Explains With Small Business Owner Tim (Amina M | Oct. 26, 2020 | 48:14) at
Let us not be distracted by convoluted definitions of “common law.” It is simple. Men and women are not property. WE have inalienable rights and freedoms. Governments (service corporations) were created by men and women to protect those rights and freedoms and to help protect their lawful property. Employees of these service corporations have duties and obligations not to commit trespass against another's property or to try to administer another's property without right. And each employee is personally liable for any trespass.

1. Doctrine and Covenants | Section 98:5–9 ~ And that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me. Therefore, I, the Lord, justify you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land; And as pertaining to law of man, whatsoever is more or less than this, cometh of evil. I, the Lord God, make you free, therefore ye are free indeed; and the law also maketh you free. Nevertheless, when the wicked rule the people mourn.
2. Charles W. Nibley: “I believe as the Prophet Joseph has written, that the day would come when there would be so much of disorder, of secret combinations taking the law into their own hands, tramping upon Constitutional rights and the liberties of the people, that the Constitution would hang as by a thread. Yes, but it will still hang, and there will be enough of good people, many who may not belong to our Church at all, people who have respect for law and for order, and for Constitutional rights, who will rally around with us[?] and save the Constitution.” | p. 40 of Conference Report, October 1922 (bold emphasis added)
NOTE: the paragraph before this statement and in other portions of his talk, it seems CWN puts us in a “double bind” (as do many past and latter-day others) by advocating strict obedience to whatever statute is in force: “We should uphold all the laws of the land whether we like them or not; ... And if we will think more of our duties, and a little less, perhaps, of our rights, we will be gainers thereby, and we will not break any law of the land, for the Lord has said, 'He who observeth the law of God hath no need to break the law of the land.'” Prior to this at p. 37, CWN stated: “It has been the counsel of the leaders of this Church from the beginning, to observe the Constitutional law of the land, and it is stated in the revelations that whatsoever is more than this or less than this, cometh of evil. We do not need anything outside of this strict letter of the law, for if we do go beyond it, or come tardy of it, we are liable to make a mistake. The agency that the Lord has given to his sons and daughters was given to all—the free agency to choose between right and wrong, and that agency makes us free, for the Lord has said, 'If ye abide in my truth, then are ye free indeed.' Now, whenever any man enters any organization, secret or otherwise, that takes from him a certain degree of that free agency to choose between right and wrong, and makes of him a servant, to do as he is told in certain matters, quite irrespective of the righteousness or justice of the case, or of the right or wrong of the case, then that man surrenders that much of his free agency which he ought not under any circumstances to surrender.” This writer (SMS) says: Reality demands that we ponder deeply how to reconcile these seemingly contradictory demands.

With a Voice of Singing*

In our local paper this week, a front-page headline read:
“Alberta loosens rules for singing ...”
The column text read in part:
“... top doctor says people can sing and play wind instruments indoors once again, provided COVID-19 precautions are in place. / ... says those activities were severely restricted because they were thought [1] to poise unique risks of spreading the virus. / But she says new evidence shows they can be done safely with certain safeguards. // ... Choirs can restart with maximum size limits and masks, but audience singing is still not allowed.” (Bold emphasis added.)
Not allowed?! Is such a continuing ban conceivable? YET it is mandated — in many places all over the world! Even in our world-wide, choir-famous church! And we acquiesce?!2

Do we not understand the everlasting role of singing in God's kingdom? that the song of the righteous is a prayer unto [God]?3 perhaps the most powerful prayer considering the hundreds of references in scripture and prophecy to singing?4 Have we ever witnessed the incredible power of hymns, spirituals, and other songs to change ambience; strengthen endurance; lift souls; even perhaps, precipitate an earthquake when it was needed?5

Is the ban on singing because of COVID or about something else? What if singing could change the world? What if the most powerful prayer is the song and we have gone silent? What if all the outrage, cursing, cries, and so forth at protests and marches were channeled, instead, into songs of faith, hope, charity, and rejoicing in the strength of unity? Could it change the mood of protesters, enforcers, and perhaps even counter-protesters?

What if gifted choirs and vocalists would gather as flash mobs6 all over the world at capitol buildings, parks, city squares, corporate / media offices, “elite” conferences, freedom / protest marches, and so forth, and sing songs of hope and joy, (including, where appropriate, songs of praise for the God of Heaven, the Creator of Heaven and Earth)? songs of rejoicing in life and freedomsnot dirges of piety or judgment, but upbeat songs, from whatever source or time, that lift the soul? Could such songs soften the hearts of “authorities,” leaders, planners, protesters? Could composers and lyricists rise to the challenge? grant rights to activists / marchers / flash mobs to perform already existing works that “cry freedom”? (Perhaps we could begin with Bobby Darin's “Simple Song of Freedom”  —  Della Reese style.)

And maybe, just maybe, song could inspire renewed courage to stand for rights and freedoms in leaders who have been compromised or fear-driven to the point they feel no choice but to “obey orders” from behind-the-scenes “superiors”? Instead of cursing at seeming or budding tyrants, could we sing rousing songs of freedom and encouragement for them to stand with integrity? Let them know we understand the over-arching tyranny that rules them, even as presidents, prime ministers, premiers, governors, et al., but that the tyranny that rules them does not justify their passing it down? Remind them that our commitment to honoring obeying, or sustaining law applies only to Constitutional law and to the service of honest, wise, and good men and women?7 Could we even ferret out the controlling insiders and “plague” them with song? Instead of chanting robotic phrases, let us sing great songs that stir the soul.

Perhaps singing would prove the greatest protest strategy of all time and result in calling God out of His hiding place to end the evils that the weaknesses and obsessions of mankind have brought to such a point as this escalating world-wide tyranny.

Let us remember:
Go ye forth of Babylon, flee ye from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare ye, tell this, utter to the end of the earth; say ye: The Lord hath redeemed his servant Jacob.8

[and] he inviteth ... all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; and he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male and female; and he remembereth the heathen; and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile.9
* Old Testament | Isaiah 48:20 | Book of Mormon | 1 Nephi 20:20 ~ Go ye forth of Babylon, flee ye from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare ye, tell this, utter to the end of the earth; say ye: The Lord hath redeemed his servant Jacob. ([Bold emphasis added.]

1. Do you not see? Evidence had no role in this initial rule. It was merely thought and the prohibition descended against singing, which could be argued is, the most powerful form of worship and means to invite the Spirit of God. Under this contagion rule, when will it ever be safe to sing again in congregation or choir? Fear of contagion, natural or manufactured, has become the perfect control vehicle.

3. Doctrine and Covenants | Section 25:12 ~ For my soul delighteth in the song of the heart; yea, the song of the righteous is a prayer unto me, and it shall be answered with a blessing upon their heads.
4. Word-search “singing” | “song” in scripture. A few examples follow:
New Testament | Romans 15:9-11 ~ And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name. And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people. And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people.
New Testament | Revelation 15:3 ~ And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
Book of Mormon | 1 Nephi 21:13 ~ Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; for the feet of those who are in the east shall be established; and break forth into singing, O mountains; for they shall be smitten no more; for the Lord hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted. 
Old Testament | Jeremiah 20:13 ~ Sing unto the LORD, praise ye the LORD: for he hath delivered the soul of the poor from the hand of evildoers. 
Old Testament | Psalms 100:1-5 ~ MAKE a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
Old Testament | Psalms 96:1-3 ~ O SING unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth. Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.
New Testament | Colossians 3:16 ~ Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 
Old Testament | 2 Chronicles 5:12–13 ~ Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps, stood at the east end of the altar, and with them an hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets:) It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD;
5. New Testament | Acts 16:25-26 ~ And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed.
7. Doctrine and Covenants | Section 98:5-10 ~ And that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me. Therefore, I, the Lord, justify you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land; And as pertaining to law of man, whatsoever is more or less than this, cometh of evil. I, the Lord God, make you free, therefore ye are free indeed; and the law also maketh you free. Nevertheless, when the wicked rule the people mourn. Wherefore, honest men and wise men should be sought for diligently, and good men and wise men ye should observe to uphold; otherwise whatsoever is less than these cometh of evil. 
Doctrine and Covenants | Section 134:5 ~ We believe that all men are bound to sustain and uphold the respective governments in which they reside, while protected in their inherent and inalienable rights by the laws of such governments; [Entire section reproduced below at **] 
Doctrine and Covenants | Section 101:77-80 ~ According to the laws and constitution of the people, which I have suffered to be established, and should be maintained for the rights and protection of all flesh, according to just and holy principles; That every man may act in doctrine and principle pertaining to futurity, according to the moral agency which I have given unto him, that every man may be accountable for his own sins in the day of judgment. Therefore, it is not right that any man should be in bondage one to another. And for this purpose have I established the Constitution of this land, by the hands of wise men whom I raised up unto this very purpose, and redeemed the land by the shedding of blood.
**Doctrine and Covenants | Section 134:1-12 ~ WE believe that governments were instituted of God for the benefit of man; and that he holds men accountable for their acts in relation to them, both in making laws and administering them, for the good and safety of society. We believe that no government can exist in peace, except such laws are framed and held inviolate as will secure to each individual the free exercise of conscience, the right and control of property, and the protection of life. We believe that all governments necessarily require civil officers and magistrates to enforce the laws of the same; and that such as will administer the law in equity and justice should be sought for and upheld by the voice of the people if a republic, or the will of the sovereign. We believe that religion is instituted of God; and that men are amenable to him, and to him only, for the exercise of it, unless their religious opinions prompt them to infringe upon the rights and liberties of others; but we do not believe that human law has a right to interfere in prescribing rules of worship to bind the consciences of men, nor dictate forms for public or private devotion; that the civil magistrate should restrain crime, but never control conscience; should punish guilt, but never suppress the freedom of the soul. We believe that all men are bound to sustain and uphold the respective governments in which they reside, while protected in their inherent and inalienable rights by the laws of such governments; and that sedition and rebellion are unbecoming every citizen thus protected, and should be punished accordingly; and that all governments have a right to enact such laws as in their own judgments are best calculated to secure the public interest; at the same time, however, holding sacred the freedom of conscience. We believe that every man should be honored in his station, rulers and magistrates as such, being placed for the protection of the innocent and the punishment of the guilty; and that to the laws all men show respect and deference, as without them peace and harmony would be supplanted by anarchy and terror; human laws being instituted for the express purpose of regulating our interests as individuals and nations, between man and man; and divine laws given of heaven, prescribing rules on spiritual concerns, for faith and worship, both to be answered by man to his Maker. We believe that rulers, states, and governments have a right, and are bound to enact laws for the protection of all citizens in the free exercise of their religious belief; but we do not believe that they have a right in justice to deprive citizens of this privilege, or proscribe them in their opinions, so long as a regard and reverence are shown to the laws and such religious opinions do not justify sedition nor conspiracy. We believe that the commission of crime should be punished according to the nature of the offense; that murder, treason, robbery, theft, and the breach of the general peace, in all respects, should be punished according to their criminality and their tendency to evil among men, by the laws of that government in which the offense is committed; and for the public peace and tranquility all men should step forward and use their ability in bringing offenders against good laws to punishment. We do not believe it just to mingle religious influence with civil government, whereby one religious society is fostered and another proscribed in its spiritual privileges, and the individual rights of its members, as citizens, denied. We believe that all religious societies have a right to deal with their members for disorderly conduct, according to the rules and regulations of such societies; provided that such dealings be for fellowship and good standing; but we do not believe that any religious society has authority to try men on the right of property or life, to take from them this world's goods, or to put them in jeopardy of either life or limb, or to inflict any physical punishment upon them. They can only excommunicate them from their society, and withdraw from them their fellowship. We believe that men should appeal to the civil law for redress of all wrongs and grievances, where personal abuse is inflicted or the right of property or character infringed, where such laws exist as will protect the same; but we believe that all men are justified in defending themselves, their friends, and property, and the government, from the unlawful assaults and encroachments of all persons in times of exigency, where immediate appeal cannot be made to the laws, and relief afforded. We believe it just to preach the gospel to the nations of the earth, and warn the righteous to save themselves from the corruption of the world; but we do not believe it right to interfere with bond–servants, neither preach the gospel to, nor baptize them contrary to the will and wish of their masters, nor to meddle with or influence them in the least to cause them to be dissatisfied with their situations in this life, thereby jeopardizing the lives of men; such interference we believe to be unlawful and unjust, and dangerous to the peace of every government allowing human beings to be held in servitude. [But see D&C 98:5-10 above about the rejection of human bondage. Research Joseph Smith's  proposal to end slavery in America by the government purchasing their freedom in the hopes of ending the practice peacefully.]

For none of these iniquities come of the Lord; for he doeth that which is good among the children of men; and he doeth nothing save it be plain unto the children of men; and he inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; and he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male and female; and he remembereth the heathen; and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile.

For behold, except ye shall keep the commandments of God ye shall all likewise perish; and because of the words which have been spoken ye need not suppose that the Gentiles are utterly destroyed. For behold, I say unto you that as many of the Gentiles as will repent are the covenant people of the Lord; and as many of the Jews as will not repent shall be cast off; for the Lord covenanteth with none save it be with them that repent and believe in his Son, who is the Holy One of Israel. And now, I would prophesy somewhat more concerning the Jews and the Gentiles. For after the book of which I have spoken shall come forth, and be written unto the Gentiles, and sealed up again unto the Lord, there shall be many which shall believe the words which are written; and they shall carry them forth unto the remnant of our seed.

Catastrophe Prophets* / Profits?

Anthony Fauci
If you are not familiar with Fauci's 2017 prediction about a “surprise” outbreak” of infectious disease during Trump's presidency, just web-search: “Fauci 2017 surprise prediction” to overwhelm yourself with references. Except the curious thing is the use of the word “surprise.” Why surprise? Considering history, science, and Fauci's considerable experience, there is solid expectation of some spreading contagion every year? We, the masses, may not know the precise version (is that the surprise?), although anticipatory vaccines1 are sometimes on hand for a shot in the dark at forecasted mutations.

But what is the meaning of surprise? An unexpected event? Except,
1) pandemics are not unexpected (How many simulated pandemic conferences have we already funded?); and
2) almost all the sample uses for “surprise” involve human planning by at least one party, especially when someone promises a “surprise.”2 
And why the seeming pleasure with which Fauci made his prediction? that uncontrollable micro-leaking similar to duping delight3? except duping is not quite right in this instance as there is truth in Fauci's prediction — a hint of privileged foreknowledge. So what should we call this micro pleasure? Disaster-delight? Or is it dumping-delight? as in karmic dumping4? karmic shift? Give a hint of what's coming (as in plandemic?) and if the people don't get it and stop the plan, then the blame is on them. Surprise! Surprise!

Bill 'n Melinda Gates
As to the Gates' prophecies, just YouTube-search “Gates second wave” to get an equally overwhelming prophetic concern / warning of coming catastrophe — with even more blatant samples of disaster-delight? Or just watch the Plandemic 2 - Indoctornation video referred to at the end of this post to observe the smiles.

Samuel Feinburg
Consider Sam Feinburg's, A Catastrophic Blackout is Coming - Here’s How We Can Stop It, (Given in 2017, re-posted 2020!5).

Feinburg's Helena Group (“a global think tank of extraordinary individuals focused on executing projects to improve the world; focused on solving big problems that matter”) is working on preparedness along with experts in NATO, CIA, USGS, NASA, NOAH, and the corporate world, as well as the Congressional EMP Commission (over a decade of work and funding), YET, in his conclusion, Feinburg feels to blame the audience (and subsequent TEDx viewers) for failing “to get out of bed and pull the brake!” Is that his prescription for “How We Can Stop It”? for the public “to get out of bed and pull the brake”? (Oh yes, and donate.) But let's ask! Pull the brake on what? an alien invasion (twice mentioned)? OR the 4 major concerns:
1) cyber attack
2) solar weather event as in a CME (coronal mass ejection)
3) EMP attack by a rogue power
4) physical attack on the grid by unknown saboteurs
all of which could bring a massive blackout of all things electric, electronic, digital, etc.

But what does Feinburg think we hire civil servants and security experts for? unless he means we can be blamed for failing to pull the brake on all the lies, deceptions, frauds, criminality, psychopathy, and power-mongering that have infiltrated and corrupted government, science, education, etc., etc. for decades. Yes, we carry huge blame for ignoring accountability, but it does not diminish in one iota the reach of Justice or create any “principle” of karmic dumping.

Almost all the concerns of (disaster-delighting?) Feinburg (and his groups) have been simulated, tabletopped, and, where possible, field-tested for decades. Just two examples from this Century are Event 2016 and Dark Winter7 (which Dark Winter, by the way, has been “prophesied” for 2020-2021) unless we get a better grip on COVID, which means more lock-down, business-closure, isolation, masking, testing, tracking, quarantine, vaccinating, rule-making, etc. etc. In short, making almost everything we do as humans harmful; making rights and freedoms illegal, and making astronomical profits for the insiders.

Can we see the red flags being hoisted for a Cultural Revolution? a revolution with all its coming horrors, déjà vu Mao? If we don't think it can come to that, it can. It has already begun for some and will spread as surely as Moa's “zao fan, which literally means to turn everything upside down.”8

Many may ask: Where is all the profit in destruction? Answer: Just ask the re-constructionists, the vulture capitalists, the land & asset grabbers, Halliburton and friends.

If you are open to understanding the catastrophe prophets and profits, watch and share:
1. THE JAB: Featuring GlaxoSmithKline 9

Widely claimed by the profiteers and their sycophants (including paid “fact-checkers”) to be another debunked conspiracy theory, but YOU DECIDE: Whom should we believe?11
How easy it is to be a prophet if one has the power and control to make prophetic things happen or appear to happen; OR to intervene in or enhance coming events known either through surveillance or “celestial” observation. We should know by now that whenever we hear of a training or simulation exercise it will undoubtedly unfold amazingly concurrent with a real crisis / catastrophe. What is the next planned training / simulation?

And what should we hold foremost in our words and actions as we move to end this Mao-like zoa fan and begin to assert accountability upon those who have been unaccountable for decades?
Recompense to no man evil for evil.12
See that none render evil for evil unto any man;13
Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing;14
But I [Jesus] say unto you, That ye resist not evil [with evil]:15
Admittedly, it is a delicate balance: calling out for accountability; naming the abuses and abusers; seeing as best we can in the light of the science and history of human nature and its relation to power, gain, and glory, but we are precisely here at this zao fan because we failed accountability.

1) Pursuers and protectors of power, gain, & glory? OR

● Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.2
● ... they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.3
● For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.4
● GO to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth eaten. Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.5
● Wo unto you rich men, that will not give your substance to the poor, for your riches will canker your souls; and this shall be your lamentation in the day of visitation, and of judgment, and of indignation: The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and my soul is not saved!6
● And whatsoever nation shall uphold such secret combinations, to get power and gain, until they shall spread over the nation, behold, they shall be destroyed; for the Lord will not suffer that the blood of his saints, which shall be shed by them, shall always cry unto him from the ground for vengeance upon them and yet he avenge them not.7

Reasons to Wear (or Not) a Face Mask?

The other day, I was presented with a YouTube vlog titled: REASONS TO NOT WEAR A FACE MASK.1 At risk of adding to brittlestar's million plus views and spoiling his kamikaze ending, I list his concluding reasons why one would NOT wear a face mask:
● Science-itis
● Acute Wussness
● Selfish Syndrome
● Chronic Dickishness
● Pathological Ignorance
● Severe Moron-ness
His presentation struck me as a classic, unconscious self-exposure, or possibly the mote / beam scenario (which afflicts us all).2

The pro and con face-mask question has become so contentious — with the vast majority of brittlestar's thumbs-up being in support of mask wearing, ostensibly to protect others. In my view, the debate distills beyond the appearance of things to the hidden things of ages past and present — to the déjà vu voices of warning.
24 Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things [“secret combinations, to get power and gain”] come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you; or wo be unto it, because of the blood of them who have been slain; for they cry from the dust for vengeance upon it, and also upon those who built it up.
25 For it cometh to pass that whoso buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the devil, who is the father of all lies; even that same liar who beguiled our first parents,3
What more perfect scenario could be imagined to amass global power and gain than this COVID crisis and the incremental, “essential” concessions required of ALL to save mankind? And what more blatant violation of
that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me [the Lord]. ... And as pertaining to law of man, whatsoever is more or less than this [“the constitutional law of the land”], cometh of evil4?
Footnote 6
So here is my response to brittlestar and to those who wish to compel mask wearing or to shame non-maskers in this age of “lying wonders” and masquerading.
Ten REASONS (amongst others) TO WEAR a face mask?
1) because you are one of Stanley Milgram's 65% who reflexively trusts / obeys authority figures wearing labcoats? (virtual or not) (or masks?) (Science-itis?)
2) because you refuse to see or are afraid to question / challenge the inconsistent or contradictory narratives of the “authorities”? (Wussness?)
3) because NON-conformity to authoritarian demands makes some people angry? abusive? domineering? afraid? (“stay the hell away from me”) (Selfi Syndrome?) AND you have enough stress without offending the angry, abusive, domineering, afraid?
4) because you are in denial or ignorance of the science and history of power — its pursuit and abuse throughout the ages and its commitment to never let a crisis (or “cover-up”) go to waste?
5) because you have passively drunk the Kool-aid of the ageless Domination System? i.e., “Whatever WE-the-Powers demand that you do is right.” (Chronic servitude? Brown-shirt Syndrome?)
6) because you insist that one more notch (It's just a mask!!5) in the (tightening) belt of tyranny does not matter because of all the other “innocuous” notches we have passively accepted over the years?
7) because you discount or disparage the claims and evidence of whistle-blowers & witnesses who have everything to lose when exposing or challenging the Powers?
8) because you think that the fear of death or any COVID death (vis-à-vis collateral deaths and destructions) justifies whatever it takes to legislate “greater safety” and herd obedience?
9) because you haven't read many of the mask-box or fabric-mask disclaimers?
10) because you think and feel YOU should mask-up and freely choose to?
1. REASONS TO NOT WEAR A FACE MASK [Bold emphasis added.] (Brittlestar | July 10, 2020 | Time 1:30 min) at
2. New Testament | JST Matthew 7: 7: 4-5 ~ Why is it that thou beholdest the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and canst not behold a beam is in thine own eye?
3. Book of Mormon | Ether 8:24-25 (Bold emphasis added.)
4. Doctrine and Covenants | Section 98:4-9 ~ And now, verily I say unto you concerning the laws of the land, it is my will that my people should observe to do all things whatsoever I command them. And that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me. Therefore, I, the Lord, justify you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land; And as pertaining to law of man, whatsoever is more or less than this, cometh of evil. I, the Lord God, make you free, therefore ye are free indeed; and the law also maketh you free. Nevertheless, when the wicked rule the people mourn.

Déjà Vu ~ 29-23 BC: Corruptions, Conversions, Inversions?

(from the Ancient Americas circa 29-23 BC)

Background: circa 600 BC two families fled the land of Jerusalem, eventually making their way across the ocean to what later became known as the Americas. The two families: Lehi (descended of Manasseh / Joseph1) and Ishmael (likewise descended) intermarried and fractured into two groups with the two eldest sons of Lehi (Laman & Lemuel) squaring off against the four youngest sons (Sam, Nephi, Jacob, & Joseph). The conflict over rights of governance became so bitter, the younger group, led by Nephi, moved north(?) to escape the conflict,2 but the bitterness of the two eldest soon led to their attempts to bring the Nephite group into servitude. For nigh a thousand years, the wars between the two groups waxed and waned with a few specific periods when peace prevailed to such an extent that they freely mingled and intermarried till power frictions arose again and they took up the old divisions and hatreds: mostly Lamanities versus Nephites, except for ”Nephite” dissenters seeking power who often stirred the Lamanites to anger and war as previously described in Déjà Vu: circa BC 72.3 But the Nephite great failing, that eventually proved their entire destruction was the continually repeating pride cycle4 and infiltration in government by secret combinations pursuing and protecting power and gain.

It doesn't take much investigation to witness a latter-day Nephite repeat in this land of the Americas.5 Thus, our best hope and prayer is perhaps for a Lamanite repeat of circa 29 to 23 BC. Can the native inhabitants of these Americas that were so devastated by the Europeans beginning 500 plus years ago, reject the ways and means of the domination system through a mighty conversion — through an inversion of our present dire straits?
1 AND it came to pass that when the sixty and second year of the reign of the judges had ended, all these things had happened and the Lamanites had become, the more part of them, a righteous people, insomuch that their righteousness did exceed that of the Nephites, because of their firmness and their steadiness in the faith.
2 For behold, there were many of the Nephites who had become hardened and impenitent and grossly wicked, insomuch that they did reject the word of God and all the preaching and prophesying which did come among them.
3 Nevertheless, the people of the church did have great joy because of the conversion of the Lamanites, yea, because of the church of God, which had been established among them. And they did fellowship one with another, and did rejoice one with another, and did have great joy.
4 And it came to pass that many of the Lamanites did come down into the land of Zarahemla, and did declare unto the people of the Nephites the manner of their conversion, and did exhort them to faith and repentance.
5 Yea, and many did preach with exceedingly great power and authority, unto the bringing down many of them into the depths of humility, to be the humble followers of God and the Lamb.
6 And it came to pass that many of the Lamanites did go into the land northward; and also Nephi and Lehi went into the land northward, to preach unto the people. And thus ended the sixty and third year.
7 And behold, there was peace in all the land, insomuch that the Nephites did go into whatsoever part of the land they would, whether among the Nephites or the Lamanites.
8 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did also go whithersoever they would, whether it were among the Lamanites or among the Nephites; and thus they did have free intercourse one with another, to buy and to sell, and to get gain, according to their desire.
9 And it came to pass that they became exceedingly rich, both the Lamanites and the Nephites; and they did have an exceeding plenty of gold, and of silver, and of all manner of precious metals, both in the land south and in the land north.
10 Now the land south was called Lehi and the land north was called Mulek, which was after the son of Zedekiah; for the Lord did bring Mulek into the land north, and Lehi into the land south.
11 And behold, there was all manner of gold in both these lands, and of silver, and of precious ore of every kind; and there were also curious workmen, who did work all kinds of ore and did refine it; and thus they did become rich.
12 They did raise grain in abundance, both in the north and in the south; and they did flourish exceedingly, both in the north and in the south. And they did multiply and wax exceedingly strong in the land. And they did raise many flocks and herds, yea, many fatlings.
13 Behold their women did toil and spin, and did make all manner of cloth, of fine-twined linen and cloth of every kind, to clothe their nakedness. And thus the sixty and fourth year did pass away in peace.
14 And in the sixty and fifth year they did also have great joy and peace, yea, much preaching and many prophecies concerning that which was to come. And thus passed away the sixty and fifth year.
15 And it came to pass that in the sixty and sixth year of the reign of the judges, behold, Cezoram was murdered by an unknown hand as he sat upon the judgment–seat. And it came to pass that in the same year, that his son, who had been appointed by the people in his stead, was also murdered. And thus ended the sixty and sixth year.
16 And in the commencement of the sixty and seventh year the people began to grow exceedingly wicked again.
17 For behold, the Lord had blessed them so long with the riches of the world that they had not been stirred up to anger, to wars, nor to bloodshed; therefore they began to set their hearts upon their riches; yea, they began to seek to get gain that they might be lifted up one above another; therefore they began to commit secret murders, and to rob and to plunder, that they might get gain.
18 And now behold, those murderers and plunderers were a band who had been formed by Kishkumen and Gadianton. And now it had come to pass that there were many, even among the Nephites, of Gadianton's band. But behold, they were more numerous among the more wicked part of the Lamanites. And they were called Gadianton's robbers and murderers.
19 And it was they who did murder the chief judge Cezoram, and his son, while in the judgment–seat; and behold, they were not found.
20 And now it came to pass that when the Lamanites found that there were robbers among them they were exceedingly sorrowful; and they did use every means in their power to destroy them off the face of the earth.
21 But behold, Satan did stir up the hearts of the more part of the Nephites, insomuch that they did unite with those bands of robbers, and did enter into their covenants and their oaths, that they would protect and preserve one another in whatsoever difficult circumstances they should be placed, that they should not suffer for their murders, and their plunderings, and their stealings.
22 And it came to pass that they did have their signs, yea, their secret signs, and their secret words; and this that they might distinguish a brother who had entered into the covenant, that whatsoever wickedness his brother should do he should not be injured by his brother, nor by those who did belong to his band, who had taken this covenant.
23 And thus they might murder, and plunder, and steal, and commit whoredoms and all manner of wickedness, contrary to the laws of their country and also the laws of their God.
24 And whosoever of those who belonged to their band should reveal unto the world of their wickedness and their abominations, should be tried, not according to the laws of their country, but according to the laws of their wickedness, which had been given by Gadianton and Kishkumen.
25 Now behold, it is these secret oaths and covenants which Alma commanded his son should not go forth unto the world, lest they should be a means of bringing down the people unto destruction.
26 Now behold, those secret oaths and covenants did not come forth unto Gadianton from the records which were delivered unto Helaman; but behold, they were put into the heart of Gadianton by that same being who did entice our first parents to partake of the forbidden fruit—
27 Yea, that same being who did plot with Cain, that if he would murder his brother Abel it should not be known unto the world. And he did plot with Cain and his followers from that time forth.
28 And also it is that same being who put it into the hearts of the people to build a tower sufficiently high that they might get to heaven. And it was that same being who led on the people who came from that tower into this land; who spread the works of darkness and abominations over all the face of the land, until he dragged the people down to an entire destruction, and to an everlasting hell.
29 Yea, it is that same being who put it into the heart of Gadianton to still carry on the work of darkness, and of secret murder; and he has brought it forth from the beginning of man even down to this time.
30 And behold, it is he who is the author of all sin. And behold, he doth carry on his works of darkness and secret murder, and doth hand down their plots, and their oaths, and their covenants, and their plans of awful wickedness, from generation to generation according as he can get hold upon the hearts of the children of men.
31 And now behold, he had got great hold upon the hearts of the Nephites; yea, insomuch that they had become exceedingly wicked; yea, the more part of them had turned out of the way of righteousness, and did trample under their feet the commandments of God, and did turn unto their own ways, and did build up unto themselves idols of their gold and their silver.
32 And it came to pass that all these iniquities did come unto them in the space of not many years, insomuch that a more part of it had come unto them in the sixty and seventh year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.
33 And they did grow in their iniquities in the sixty and eighth year also, to the great sorrow and lamentation of the righteous.
34 And thus we see that the Nephites did begin to dwindle in unbelief, and grow in wickedness and abominations, while the Lamanites began to grow exceedingly in the knowledge of their God; yea, they did begin to keep his statutes and commandments, and to walk in truth and uprightness before him.
35 And thus we see that the Spirit of the Lord began to withdraw from the Nephites, because of the wickedness and the hardness of their hearts.
36 And thus we see that the Lord began to pour out his Spirit upon the Lamanites, because of their easiness and willingness to believe in his words.
37 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did hunt the band of robbers of Gadianton; and they did preach the word of God among the more wicked part of them, insomuch that this band of robbers was utterly destroyed from among the Lamanites.
38 And it came to pass on the other hand, that the Nephites did build them up and support them, beginning at the more wicked part of them, until they had overspread all the land of the Nephites, and had seduced the more part of the righteous until they had come down to believe in their works and partake of their spoils, and to join with them in their secret murders and combinations.
39 And thus they did obtain the sole management of the government, insomuch that they did trample under their feet and smite and rend and turn their backs upon the poor and the meek, and the humble followers of God.
40 And thus we see that they were in an awful state, and ripening for an everlasting destruction.
41 And it came to pass that thus ended the sixty and eighth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.6
Let us hope and pray for a repeat of verse 37, because verses 38-40 seem so unalterable?

1. Book of Mormon | 1 Nephi 5:14 ~ And it came to pass that my father, Lehi, also found upon the plates of brass a genealogy of his fathers; wherefore he knew that he was a descendant of Joseph; yea, even that Joseph who was the son of Jacob, who was sold into Egypt, and who was preserved by the hand of the Lord, that he might preserve his father, Jacob, and all his household from perishing with famine.
Book of Mormon | Alma 10:2-3 ~ I am Amulek; I am the son of Giddonah, who was the son of Ishmael, who was a descendant of Aminadi; and it was the same Aminadi who interpreted the writing which was upon the wall of the temple, which was written by the finger of God. And Aminadi was a descendant of Nephi, who was the son of Lehi, who came out of the land of Jerusalem, who was a descendant of Manasseh, who was the son of Joseph who was sold into Egypt by the hands of his brethren.
