The Priesthood Keys

If I were to tell you that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints holds the priesthood keys that will be instrumental in ushering in the Marvelous Work and a Wonder in the 3rd watch, would that surprise you?

After all, I am the heretic that teaches that the Melchizedek Priesthood was only on the earth for 3 ½ years during the LDS foundation movement. It was lost in the church by late December of 1834.

And I am the one that claims that the priesthood offices within the Patriarchal Priesthood that have the right to administer the saving ordinances of the gospel were lost from the earth by the time the Prophet Joseph Smith was martyred… Because of the failure of the church of repent and finish the Nauvoo temple within the “sufficient time” allotted by the Lord.

That failure to complete the temple and the decision to flee from the cornerstone of Zion against the will of the Lord caused the church to be rejected with its dead.

So… how in the world could the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints hold and disperse the priesthood keys necessary to usher in the Marvelous Work and a Wonder and the dispensation of the fullness of times?

I will address this issue in my next post.

    This is fascinating about each priesthood and who is their prophet…

    Aaronic — the prophet, if one
    Patriarchal — Christ
    Melchizedek — they become prophets (would this be the same type of prophet that leads the Aaronic?)

    JS said “All the prophets had the Melchizedek Priesthood and were ordained by God himself.” TPJS p. 181

    That could literal as in Moses 8:19 or figuratively as is D&C 36:2.

    I would love to learn more about where it describes which priesthood follows who.
