Time to Board the ARC*?

ARC logo

(*Alliance for Responsible Citizenship)
“The ARC of the moral universe is long
but it bends toward justice”

Could ARC prove an essential antidote to WO and WEF?

We may not agree with everything said at the first ARC conference or with every person who was invited or named as ARC advocates or as members of the advisory board, but finally, we have a group who seems prepared to vigorously stand for Responsible Citizenship and to defend values that have stood the test of time. And time will tell whether this highly influential group will end up for the good or for the bad, but as more prophetic voices (both seeming and real) arise in the world, the need for discernment increases.

If ARC is a key puzzle piece to the end-times, let us pray its founders (Jordan B. Peterson & colleagues) can discern the Judases that inevitably attach themselves to or seek to infiltrate every Good.

Let us pay attention to ARC because in the end-time testing, our assumptions and biases about our own faith may need this Shakespearean reminder:
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

    - Hamlet (1.5.167-8), Hamlet to Horatio.
There were many worthy speeches presented at ARC, but here are Peterson’s opening and closing remarks. (Note: If Biblical Isaiah can go naked and barefoot for three years as a sign of things to come,1 perhaps JBP can feel motivated to wear a divided suit?)

   2 At the same time spake the LORD by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, Go and loose the sackcloth from off thy loins, and put off thy shoe from thy foot. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot.
   3 And the LORD said, Like as my servant Isaiah hath walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and wonder upon Egypt and upon Ethiopia;
  4 So shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians prisoners, and the Ethiopians captives, young and old, naked and barefoot, even with their buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Egypt.

Enoch’s Solar Calendar – Month IX?

(Times and Seasons series: Post #XV)

Note: These calendar posts are my way of exploring Enoch’s solar calendar. I don’t know yet how to reconcile Enoch with present-day observations, but I plan to keep observing and studying. If these posts prompt others to greater observation and inquiry then so much the better. We learn by asking questions and observing, which we should probably be doing more of since much of God’s sign-language is forecast to occur in the Heavens according to His schedule and calendar. If there are mistakes herein they are undoubtedly mine, not Enoch's.

Signs, Seasons, Days, and Years: # II (Enoch)1
Pondering Enoch's Calendar?2
According to the Book of Enoch, the sun continues southward, now rising and setting through East and West portal 1 for 31 days. My observation over the past months is that the sun's movement seems incremental and does not manifest a sudden jump to a new portal after a 30 or 31 days cycle.

Allegedly, Month IX is the third calendar month (out of a yearly four) that has 31 days, with day 31 being the winter solstice, reportedly (Gregorian) December 21 for 2023. If the winter solstice is (Gregorian) December 21, then theoretically, the 31 days of Month IX end December 21, when the light / dark division, being 6L / 12D (out of 18 parts), begins to reverse at the shortest day of the year (December 21, 10:27 pm, Kirtland, Ohio?), according to Time and Date.3 Also, according to Enoch, the first day of Month IX always falls on Day Five of the week (our Gregorian Thursday). However, if each of Enoch's seasons has 91 days (30+30+31, ending with the equinoxes and solstices) and if my count is right and if the calculation of the Spring Equinox was right (March 20), today (Gregorian Saturday, November 18) marks the first day of Month Nine which will end 31 days later on December 18 (not the alleged Winter Solstice!). How to reconcile it all remains a mystery, to me at least. 

Below is a PDF grid of what Month IX (Nine) might look like if we looked to the Book of Enoch instead of Pope Gregory (assuming, of course, that Enoch hasn't suffered text corruption — and who knows for sure?!). Also, this Month Nine follows the same pattern layout as Months Three, Six, and Twelve. To see the full year, repeating grid, see here.4

For those interested in what has happened in scripture / history during Month IX [Gregorian November / December], here is a list. And if there is parallelism or déjà vu in times, seasons, and prophecy, could any of these recitations of date have any relevance to these last days? — (the last week of Daniel's 70 weeks?)

Ninth Month (7 references):

Note that in the Jeremiah references, Judah and Jerusalem were in dire crisis as false prophets had assured the people that they had been saved from Nebuchadnezzar's siege, only to have his army turn back to the siege after defeating Egypt's army at Carchemish. The result: the destruction of Jerusalem and Solomon's temple, and the final deportation of all but the poor, 587 BC.]
1 NOW the children of Israel after their number, to wit, the chief fathers and captains of thousands and hundreds, and their officers that served the king in any matter of the courses, which came in and went out month by month throughout all the months of the year, of every course were twenty and four thousand. ...
12 The ninth captain for the ninth month was Abiezer the Anetothite, of the Benjamites: and in his course were twenty and four thousand (Old Testament | 1 Chronicles 27:1, 12).

7 And they made proclamation throughout Judah and Jerusalem unto all the children of the captivity, that they should gather themselves together unto Jerusalem;
8 And that whosoever would not come within three days, according to the counsel of the princes and the elders, all his substance should be forfeited, and himself separated from the congregation of those that had been carried away.
9 ¶ Then all the men of Judah and Benjamin gathered themselves together unto Jerusalem within three days. It was the ninth month, on the twentieth day of the month; and all the people sat in the street of the house of God, trembling because of this matter, and for the great rain.
10 And Ezra the priest stood up, and said unto them, Ye have transgressed, and have taken strange wives, to increase the trespass of Israel (Old Testament | Ezra 10:7-10).

8 And Baruch the son of Neriah did according to all that Jeremiah the prophet commanded him, reading in the book the words of the LORD in the LORD's house.
9 And it came to pass in the fifth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, in the ninth month, that they proclaimed a fast before the LORD to all the people in Jerusalem, and to all the people that came from the cities of Judah unto Jerusalem.
10 Then read Baruch in the book the words of Jeremiah in the house of the LORD, in the chamber of Gemariah the son of Shaphan the scribe, in the higher court, at the entry of the new gate of the LORD's house, in the ears of all the people (Old Testament | Jeremiah 36:8-10).

21 So the king sent Jehudi to fetch the roll: and he took it out of Elishama the scribe's chamber. And Jehudi read it in the ears of the king, and in the ears of all the princes which stood beside the king.
22 Now the king sat in the winterhouse in the ninth month: and there was a fire on the hearth burning before him.
23 And it came to pass, that when Jehudi had read three or four leaves, he cut it with the penknife, and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth.
24 Yet they were not afraid, nor rent their garments, neither the king, nor any of his servants that heard all these words.
25 Nevertheless Elnathan and Delaiah and Gemariah had made intercession to the king that he would not burn the roll: but he would not hear them (Old Testament | Jeremiah 36:21-25).

10 ¶ In the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying,
11 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying,
12 If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No.
13 Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean.
14 Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith the LORD; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean.
15 And now, I pray you, consider from this day and upward, from before a stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of the LORD:
16 Since those days were, when one came to an heap of twenty measures, there were but ten: when one came to the pressfat for to draw out fifty vessels out of the press, there were but twenty.
17 I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labours of your hands; yet ye turned not to me, saith the LORD.
18 Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the LORD's temple was laid, consider it (Old Testament | Haggai 2:10-18).

1 AND it came to pass in the fourth year of king Darius, that the word of the LORD came unto Zechariah in the fourth day of the ninth month, even in Chisleu;
2 When they had sent unto the house of God Sherezer and Regem-melech, and their men, to pray before the LORD,
3 And to speak unto the priests which were in the house of the LORD of hosts, and to the prophets, saying, Should I weep in the fifth month, separating myself, as I have done these so many years?
4 ¶ Then came the word of the LORD of hosts unto me, saying,
5 Speak unto all the people of the land, and to the priests, saying, When ye fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh month, even those seventy years, did ye at all fast unto me, even to me?
6 And when ye did eat, and when ye did drink, did not ye eat for yourselves, and drink for yourselves?
7 Should ye not hear the words which the LORD hath cried by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity, and the cities thereof round about her, when men inhabited the south and the plain? (Old Testament | Zechariah 7:1-7).

Another Voice Crying in the Wilderness

If one thinks one knows the rapper Tom MacDonald, his latest release “Superman” may prove as surprising to us as to his many fans and his few detractors. Like or dislike his work, he exposes in just over three minutes, the lamentation of our times for those who will see and hear:

Tom MacDonald - "Superman"
(Tom MacDonald | Nov 10, 2023 | Time 3:08 min.) at
Judging by the many reactions to this release,1 MacDonald’s words rise above the manufactured divides that are fracturing the hope and promise that began 247 years ago – in 1776 North America; a hope and promise that has been under attack by the enemies of the good, the true, and the beautiful since before day one. But God, in His sign-language ways, has, over the millennia, used all sorts of prophetic characters (even if they don't know or understand it) to give warnings and messages to backsliding, torpid people.2 And from the news coming out of our LDS centerplace, the “boom” may be much closer than we imagine?

So, on this day – November 11 – when too many pretend to remember the horrors and sacrifices of war, let us listen to Tom and remember. Remember too: We dishonor every fallen or surviving soldier when we agree to live the lies that are the quicksands of Fwoke3 and domination ideology.   

1. (reactions that can be found by searching “reaction Superman Tom MacDonald”)
2. Remember especially, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and for our day:
   Doctrine and Covenants | Section 112:23-26
   23 Verily, verily, I say unto you, darkness covereth the earth, and gross darkness the minds of the people, and all flesh has become corrupt before my face.
   24 Behold, vengeance cometh speedily upon the inhabitants of the earth, a day of wrath, a day of burning, a day of desolation, of weeping, of mourning, and of lamentation; and as a whirlwind it shall come upon all the face of the earth, saith the Lord.
   25 And upon my house shall it begin, and from my house shall it go forth, saith the Lord;
   26 First among those among you, saith the Lord, who have professed to know my name and have not known me, and have blasphemed against me in the midst of my house, saith the Lord.

Power / Authority* Q & A?

Q: If “natural men”1 are so prone to choosing the way that leads to corruption and destruction as both scripture2 and history document (and as we are now witnessing on a global scale), why does God’s plan give them innumerable opportunities to advance in power and authority to the harm of others?

Q: Why do we frequently allow laws, governments, and authorities3 to become self-serving, corrupt, and abusive to the harm of ourselves and others?

Q: Why does God tolerate so much censorship and persecution by corrupted authorities of those who seek the narrow way? Why do we?

Perhaps the answer is more simple than we imagine if we asked more questions.

Q: If this earth-bound mortality is a probation4 as in
a period of time at the start of a new job when you are watched and tested to see if you are suitable for the job,5
      then what could the new job entail?

      Could it be love of God and neighbour? as in:
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets (New Testament | Matthew 22:36–40).
Q: But what if Love is not the job, but the gateway to the job? What if the prospective job is Power6? What if our probation here is to see if we can be trusted with Power? not just with the exercise of power in mortality, but with how we respond to abusive power that harms us or others?
17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire [burning of conscience?] on his head.
21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good (New Testament | Romans 12:17–21).
What better Plan than agency, time, and opportunity could there be to test for who can be advanced to eternal Power and who cannot?

So, how are we each doing with our individual power? in our families? relationships? jobs? positions? assignments? organizations? social circles? communications? influence? etc.

A: Perhaps honest self-reflection would tell us most of what we need to know about how our probation is presently going and whether we can be trusted hereafter.

Book of Mormon | 2 Nephi 2:21
   21 And the days of the children of men were prolonged, according to the will of God, that they might repent while in the flesh; wherefore, their state became a state of probation, and their time was lengthened, according to the commandments which the Lord God gave unto the children of men.
Book of Mormon | 2 Nephi 9:27-28
   27 But wo unto him that has the law given, yea, that has all the commandments of God, like unto us, and that transgresseth them, and that wasteth the days of his probation, for awful is his state!
   28 O that cunning plan of the evil one! O the vainness, and the frailties, and the foolishness of men! When they are learned they think they are wise, and they hearken not unto the counsel of God, for they set it aside, supposing they know of themselves, wherefore, their wisdom is foolishness and it profiteth them not. And they shall perish.
Book of Mormon | 2 Nephi 33:9
   9 I also have charity for the Gentiles. But behold, for none of these can I hope except they shall be reconciled unto Christ, and enter into the narrow gate, and walk in the strait path which leads to life, and continue in the path until the end of the day of probation.
Book of Mormon | Alma 12:24
   24 And we see that death comes upon mankind, yea, the death which has been spoken of by Amulek, which is the temporal death; nevertheless there was a space granted unto man in which he might repent; therefore this life became a probationary state; a time to prepare to meet God; a time to prepare for that endless state which has been spoken of by us, which is after the resurrection of the dead.
Book of Mormon | Alma 42:3-4, 10, 13
   3 Now, we see that the man had become as God, knowing good and evil; and lest he should put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat and live forever, the Lord God placed cherubim and the flaming sword, that he should not partake of the fruit—
   4 And thus we see, that there was a time granted unto man to repent, yea, a probationary time, a time to repent and serve God. ...
   10 Therefore, as they had become carnal, sensual, and devilish, by nature, this probationary state became a state for them to prepare; it became a preparatory state. ...
   13 Therefore, according to justice, the plan of redemption could not be brought about, only on conditions of repentance of men in this probationary state, yea, this preparatory state; for except it were for these conditions, mercy could not take effect except it should destroy the work of justice. Now the work of justice could not be destroyed; if so, God would cease to be God.
Book of Mormon | Helaman 13:38
   38 But behold, your days of probation are past; ye have procrastinated the day of your salvation until it is everlastingly too late, and your destruction is made sure; yea, for ye have sought all the days of your lives for that which ye could not obtain; and ye have sought for happiness in doing iniquity, which thing is contrary to the nature of that righteousness which is in our great and Eternal Head.
Book of Mormon | Mormon 9:28
   28 Be wise in the days of your probation; strip yourselves of all uncleanness; ask not, that ye may consume it on your lusts, but ask with a firmness unshaken, that ye will yield to no temptation, but that ye will serve the true and living God.
Doctrine and Covenants | Section 29:43-45
   43 And thus did I, the Lord God, appoint unto man the days of his probation—that by his natural death he might be raised in immortality unto eternal life, even as many as would believe;
   44 And they that believe not unto eternal damnation; for they cannot be redeemed from their spiritual fall, because they repent not;
   45 For they love darkness rather than light, and their deeds are evil, and they receive their wages of whom they list to obey.
