Who Hath Heard Such a Thing- Part Two

In the first part of this series I pointed out how an organization associated with the United Nations was planning on creating digital versions of the ancient Temple of Baal in the major financial centers of London and New York this month on April 19th.

Shortly after posting, a reader alerted me to the fact that they had announced a huge change in plans and were instead going to create the ancient Temple of Triumph and would only be placing it in London. It is believed by some that this “apparent” change in plans has been brought about by a global public outcry from Christians around the world. Just the fact that they were going to attempt to do what they had announced should be a major concern to Christians and a major sign of the times.

The term “Arch of Triumph” is a somewhat ambiguous term as there have apparently been multiple arches that have been referred to that way. When I did a quick cursory search I noticed that one such arch was erected during the rule and under the direction of Septimius Severus who is known for his persecution of Christians who did not worship the emperor and his gods.

Since doing that search I have listened to the research of another person that provides some very interesting historical information which suggests that the arch of Triumph that is being referred to is actually the arch of palmyra which is essentially the arch of Baal since it is still part of the ancient Baal Temple complex. If that is true, nothing much has changed except that they are just doing the initial roll out in London instead of in both places. (according to some sources the new Yuan will be introduced next Tuesday, April 19 and CHINA SAYS “NO DOLLARS” FOR NEW YUAN.  China plans to launch Yuan-denominated gold fix on April 19. THE FED is having multiple meetings, including with Obama and Biden. Plus the IMF, World Bank, ECB all in DC this week)

I still maintain that the President Elect prophecy still has to take place before a full-blown financial collapse and the MARK is implemented.

He further pointed out that many of these ancient arches represented the deification of various human rulers and therefore they are blasphemous. They also possibly imply the future return of these rulers and others… which is consistent with the prophecy in section 124 and many other passages in Isaiah and other scriptures about the kings and rulers of the world returning back to the earth in physical form at the time of the end.

Another prominent arch that he spoke of is the Arch of Titus which glorifies the destruction of the Jews and the temple in Jerusalem in about 70 AD.

[According to Wikipedia The Arch of Titus (Italian: Arco di Tito; Latin: Arcus Titi) is a 1st-century A.D. honorific arch,[1] located on the Via Sacra, Rome, just to the south-east of the Roman Forum. It was constructed in c. A.D. 82 by the Emperor Domitian shortly after the death of his older brother Titus to commemorate Titus’ victories, including the Siege of Jerusalem (70 CE). The arch has provided the general model for many triumphal arches erected since the 16th century—perhaps most famously it is the inspiration for the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, France.[2]  The soffit of the axi al archway is deeply coffered with a relief of the apotheosis of Titus at the center. The sculptural program also includes two panel reliefs lining the passageway within the arch. Both commemorate the joint triumph celebrated by Titus and his father Vespasian in the summer of 71.]]

During his presentation he pointed out that a near replica of this ancient arch had been erected in New York deifying George Washington. Through it, one could gaze at the twin towers before they came down. Now, one can gaze at the one world freedom tower.

He spoke about how the destruction of the twin towers had been planned and embedded within the dollar bills. Most of us have seen the following image over the years provided by conspiracy theorists.

Perhaps the most important takeaway from all of this for me is that the arches spoken of not only seem to deify famous leaders in history, they seem to represent the future return of people in the flesh from the unseen world. In other words, the arch seems to represent some kind of mystical “portal” that enables people and/or creatures from the unseen world to enter into this dimension at the appointed time. There is evidence to suggest that the folks over at CERN are also focused on opening portals to bring forth their god(s)

One of the many paradigm shifts that I have had during my search for greater truth over the years is that initial return or resurrection from the dead that the scriptures speak of does not necessarily take place after mortal probation, during the “millennium” as the church often teaches. Many passages of scripture makes it appear as if it takes place during the Marvelous Work and a Wonder.

The book of Isaiah is pregnant with passages referring to the return of the dead. Isaiah 66 will be a primary focus of this part of the series. For years I have been speaking about the return of God’s servants who he refers to as the “first laborers of the last kingdom” and how many ancient prophecies speak of the seven servants that will go to and fro throughout the world at the time of the end.

In Isaiah 66 The Lord God of Israel showed the prophet Isaiah a vision of the birthing process in which the Kingdom of God would be delivered back into this world to roll forth in power for the last time, as documented in the book of Daniel.  After seeing how this amazing event would take place Isaiah exclaimed in awe:

“Who hath heard such a thing?”

What was it that was so shocking and illogical to this great prophet about this prophetic birthing process that would take place shortly before the coming of the Lord in glory?

The answer is found in verse 7:

“Before she travailed she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child… ”

Indeed, who has ever heard of a delivery where the birthing pains came AFTER the child was delivered?

How strange indeed.

The use of the term “man child” in Isaiah 66 is very significant because a keyword search directs us to a prophetic narrative in the 12 chapter of the JST version of the Book of Revelation.

As I have pointed out in my book, that prophetic narrative in the Book of Revelation documents how the “Man child” was caught up to heaven shortly after being delivered during the LDS restoration movement.

The fullness of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God came forth out of the wilderness for a brief 3 ½ period of time from June of 1831 to December of 1834 but then it fled back into the wilderness.

It is important to note that in John’s prophetic scenario, the birthing of the kingdom and bringing forth of the man child involved birthing pains PRIOR to and during the deliverance:

“And the woman being with child cried , travailing in birth and pained to be delivered”

Isaiah was differentiating the final birth of the kingdom of God on earth from the previous one that had taken place during Joseph’s ministry. The Book of Revelation shows that during Joseph’s ministry, the kingdom briefly came forth out of the wilderness and then fled back into the wilderness for a little season. Isaiah 66 shows how it will return back to the earth for the final victorious time in a very mystical and miraculous way.

Isaiah points out that after the man child is delivered, the pain would emerge. During and/or following the pain, the children of the kingdom would be brought forth;

“For as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children”

The Book of Daniel informs us that when this great event or resurrection takes place, it will include both wicked and righteous souls from the past. We know this event takes place during probationary time because missionary work is still taking place. Some of those coming forth will “turn many to righteousness”:

And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. Dan 12:1-2

Isaiah 66 seems to indicate that the birthing process begins or is associated with a “noise”  from the city which is the “voice from the temple”.

“A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the Lord that rendereth recompence to his enemies..”

At the end of the previous chapter Isaiah also provides narrative relative to the state of the apostate church that had “chosen their own ways” and “delighteth in their abominations”.

The Delusional Church

God informs us that –

I will choose their delusions and will bring their fears upon them because when I called none did answer, when I spake they did not hear but they did evil before mine eyes and chose that which I delighted not”

Such is the state of the LDS restoration movement and all of Christianity. We are a deluded people. Nevertheless, the Book of Mormon informs us that those who build up a church upon the works of men or the devil and refuse to build upon the foundation of the true gospel will have joy in their works for a season:

But if it be not built upon my gospel, and is built upon the works of men, or upon the works of the devil, verily I say unto you they have joy in their works for a season, and by and by the end cometh, and they are hewn down and cast into the fire, from whence there is no return.[1]

During the ministry of the Prophet Joseph Smith the saints rejected the fullness of the gospel and the baptism of fire and the Holy Ghost. Instead they were deceived by the craftiness of men. They accepted and put their faith in a pagan masonic temple ritual which represent “another gospel[2].

The Apostle Paul echoed the prophetic observations of Isaiah and used the same wording (delusion) when he prophesied about the apostate church and how God would send them a strong delusion because they chose to seek pleasure in unrighteousness instead of believing truth:

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Both the false prophets within the church as well as virtually all of the false prophets that have been spun out of the church with the intent to “steady the ark” have all been staunch believers in the LDS temple endowment. The personal revelation these false prophets get is heavily influenced by the Temple “endowment” abomination that they have put their trust in instead of from the true endowment of fire and the Holy Ghost.

The temple ritual abomination has been the foundational source for receiving revelation of both the institutional prophets and the loose cannons that make false and delusional claims pertaining to priesthood authority and having a special secret relationship with God.

They are all deluded.

Questionable fruits have come from the prophets that were schooled in the false Temple ritual. Some of the false prophets have slit the throats of their victims, being inspired by the different ways of taking life that were once part of the temple ritual. Others of the false prophets claim they can “preserve” the priesthood authority, saving ordinances and true teachings of a religious organization that was rejected as a church with their dead by God over four generations ago.

These false prophets are oblivious to the need for the return of the fulness and the spiritual rebirth before Zion can be redeemed. They give logical and legalistic advice on how Zion can be redeemed by mortals through self-mastery, and by learning lessons from the mistakes of the saints in the past.

But I digress….

What about this amazing narrative that Isaiah gives us?

Has the Lord given additional light and knowledge about how Zion will be redeemed and how the kingdom of God will be returned to go forth filling the earth?

Yes

In October of 1831 Joseph  Smith had a prophetic dream that he had about the future rolling forth of the kingdom, quietly entered into the official history of the church. He gave no significant historical context for it nor did he provide any commentary on it.

Interestingly, this amazing dream about how the kingdom of God would return to the earth at a future time was intentionally omitted from the Book of Commandments that would be published long after the revelation was given.

Why?

Because, at the time the dream was given, the fullness of the Gospel and associated Priesthood were on the earth. The saints had been told that they had been given the kingdom.

The saints had every hope that they would be successful in redeeming Zion. They had every intention of taking the Kingdom of God forth into all the earth breaking down the corrupt kingdoms of the earth. The Lord had declared that he had already given them the kingdom:

Therefore, be ye strong from henceforth; fear not, for the kingdom is yours.[3]

This dream would have let the cat out of the bag if it had been published in the Book of Commandments. It would have informed the saints that their upcoming attempt at Zion and the spreading forth of the Kingdom of God as per the prophecies in the book of Daniel was going to fail. I believe this is why it was not included in the 1833 Book of Commandments. One of the remarkable things about Joseph Smith’ ministry is that he was quietly writing things in the journal about future events before they actually happened.

Interestingly, this dream WAS included in the 1835 Doctrine and Covenants.

Why?

Because, by that time the church had been condemned and the fulness had been taken from the saints. The Melchizedek Priesthood and the kingdom of God had fled back into the wilderness.

The Doctrine and Covenants was documenting the apostasy of the church and revealing how the kingdom would be restored to the earth after a little season.

Nevertheless, the Lord was still laboring with the church and would commission the apostles to take the KNOWLEDGE of the fulness of the Gospel to the House of Israel[4]. The Lord is merciful and long-suffering.

The fulness of the Melchizedek priesthood had been taken away and the apostles were functioning in their apostolic calling under the patriarchal priesthood that had come down from the Old Testament Fathers such as Moses and Abraham[5]. This commission would begin the fulfillment of the prophecy in 3 Nephi 16.

The first verse of the prophetic dream would have been confusing to the saints had it been included in the Book of Commandments because it speaks of a “voice” coming down from heaven that is “mighty and powerful” that would cry out to the ends of the earth “prepare ye the way of the Lord”.

Hearken, and lo, a voice as of one sent down from on high, who is mighty and powerful, whose going forth is unto the ends of the earth, yea, whose voice is unto men—Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

Notice that the above prophetic dream speaks of the “voice” that goes forth just as Isaiah spoke of the a “noise” from the city which is the “voice from the temple”.

It appears this is what the Prophet Joseph Smith was referring to when he spoke of the “Sound” that will go forth from the Temple:

…It was a Pentecost and an endowment indeed, long to be remembered, for the sound shall go forth from this place into all the world, and the occurrences of this day shall be handed down upon the pages of sacred history, to all generations; as the day of Pentecost, so shall this day be numbered and celebrated as a year of jubilee, and time of rejoicing to the Saints of the Most High God.” –History of the Church, 2:432-33

It would appear that Joseph was speaking contextually about the sound- noise- voice that would take place when the servants of the Lord go forth for the last time from the Lord’s house:

That their hearts may be softened when thy servants shall go out from thy house, O Jehovah, to bear testimony of thy name; that their prejudices may give way before the truth, and thy people may obtain favor in the sight of all

I realize it is difficult to believe that anything significant is going to take place in the sleepy little community of Kirtland Ohio, but the promise of the Lord is that great blessings are yet to be poured out from the Kirtland Temple and it is yet going to be come famous among the nations when the servants return:

“And the hearts of thousands and tens of thousands shall greatly rejoice in consequence of the blessings which shall be poured out .. [from] this house… and the fame of this house shall spread to foreign lands…”  (D&C 110:9-10)

This famous noise is spoken of by many of the ancient prophets. Jeremiah associates the noise with the Lord’s controversy with the nations which takes place shortly after the end of the seventy year reign of Babylon.

At this time the Lord will begin to bring evil upon the city which calls themselves by his name. All of this is associated with the following descriptives…. a “roar” and “voice” and “shout” and “noise”:

For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the Lord of hosts.

 Therefore prophesy thou against them all these words, and say unto them, The Lord shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout, as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.

A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the Lord hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the Lord.[6]

Jeremiah is speaking of the judgment that is also yet to begin at the Kirtland Temple as prophesied of in Section 112.

Another reason why the prophetic dream in Section 65 would not have made sense in the Book of Commandments is because the commission to “prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight” had already been given to Joseph Smith and his associates… why would the Lord need to send someone down from heaven to declare the same warning?

Doctrine and Covenants 33:10

Yea, open your mouths and they shall be filled, saying: Repent, repent, and prepare ye the way of the Lord, and make his paths straight; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand;

Doctrine and Covenants 34:6

To lift up your voice as with the sound of a trump, both long and loud, and cry repentance unto a crooked and perverse generation, preparing the way of the Lord for his second coming.

The dream continues to be illogical when taken in the context of the times in which it was received because the following passages speak of the keys of the kingdom of God being committed to man on the earth. Yet the keys had already been committed to man on the earth.. why did they need to be committed again to mortal man on the earth at some time in the future?

The keys of the kingdom of God are committed unto man on the earth, and from thence shall the gospel roll forth unto the ends of the earth, as the stone which is cut out of the mountain without hands shall roll forth, until it has filled the whole earth.

 Yea, a voice crying—Prepare ye the way of the Lord, prepare ye the supper of the Lamb, make ready for the Bridegroom.

 Pray unto the Lord, call upon his holy name, make known his wonderful works among the people.

When the LAW OF THE GOSPEL was given in section 42 the Lord declared that he had given the keys of the kingdom to Joseph and his associates:

Lift up your hearts and rejoice, for unto you the kingdom, or in other words, the keys of the church have been given. Even so. Amen.[7]

This was reiterated again in section 64:

And the keys of the mysteries of the kingdom shall not be taken from my servant Joseph Smith, Jun., through the means I have appointed, while he liveth, inasmuch as he obeyeth mine ordinances…[8]

 Why then the future need for a voice sent down from on high with the keys of the kingdom to go forth to the ends of the earth warning people to —Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight?

Needless to say, this amazing prophetic dream that Joseph had back in 1831 is just one more evidence that the Kingdom of God fled into the wilderness and will return at the appointed time. Isaiah informs us that the kingdom that Daniel spoke of will be birthed before the labor pains emerge.

“Who hath heard such a thing?”
