The Nemenhah 
Begin on page 1007:
 
15. For I had been taken upon a journey and up into a high 
mountain without any trees thereon. And the Peacemaker is He 
who guided me to the place. And in the place there was a circlet of 
stones, and it was like unto those which we use to track the 
motions of the moon and stars. And He did sit down upon the 
center stone and I upon the ground before Him, and He told me 
somewhat more of the things that should shortly come to pass in 
the forests and hills which we had determined to reclaim as our 
home. 

 

16. But behold, He did not dwell overmuch upon that which must 

surely come upon my own village, but He did speak of the great

and marvelous things which would come to pass in the last days of 

the Gentiles, after that they should come into the land to possess it 
for their own. And these are the words He spake concerning those 
things: 
17. Behold, thou knowest that the Gentiles come, for even I have 
instructed you upon these matters and the Spirit bareth record. 
But I have withheld the knowledge of the restoration of all things 
from you, excepting that such a restoration should surely come to 
pass, and that thou and thy people shouldst 
1008 
always remain in a state of thanksgiving because of it. 
Nevertheless, thou knowest that I have not instructed thee in my 
purpose, nor either in the manner in which I shall bring it about. 
18. But thy offering this day is acceptable unto me, and that Man 
of Holiness and that Mother of all Living whom we praise and 
honor as our Heavenly Parents, for such They are indeed, even 
They do move upon me to make for thee a more clear 
understanding. Wherefore shall this baptism be a greater token for 
thee. 
19. Behold, thou knowest that the Gentile shall come into this land 
and find it emptied of people. Yea, there shall be but a tiny 
Remnant of the people that once inhabited the land and they shall 
look upon you as ignorant and beastly children. Even they shall 
take it upon themselves to be your parents and teach you in their 
civilized ways. But behold, their teachings shall be all extortion 
and violence, but all the children of Lehi shall succumb and be 
treated with such counsel. And they shall be trodden and 
despoiled. Yea, they shall be all but extinguished, but for a few 
here and a few there, they shall be done away. And the traditions 
and beliefs of their fathers shall sleep for a season. 
20. And they shall build up a nation and an empire, for in the 
beginning they shall have mine approval and my blessings shall 
lay heavily upon them. For behold, I have a task that only they 
may accomplish, yea, and a purpose which only they may fulfill. 
Wherefore, I shall suffer them for a season. 
21. And they shall spread out upon all the face of the land, even as 
the Nemenhah did spread out and cover the land in the days of 
their stewardship. And the cities of the Gentiles shall be large and 
their dwellings shall be spacious. And they shall so seek after gain 
that there shall be poor in every city and the beggars shall starve 
in every byway. And behold, the cities shall not think to support 
themselves and the people shall cause that the whole world shall 
be put to labor to support them. And because of this, they shall 
esteem themselves to be the masters of the Earth and all Her 
people. 
22. But behold and bare thou a record, the Earth is Her own 
mistress and lacketh nothing. She doth measure out Her own 
dowry and Her cupboard is never bare. She decideth the times and 
the seasons according unto that which was established in the first 
day of Her creation. No man hath power to change one small thing 
that was decided upon that day. 
23. And notwithstanding the Gentile shall build up his sturdy 
house upon the rocks of the seashore, nevertheless, the Earth in 
Her pleasure shall throw the whole ocean upon it, and shall it 
stand? I say unto thee, Nay! Or shall it stand, even so shall it be 
swallowed, so let it stand upon the bottom of the sea. And he 
buildeth whole cities along the shores of the sea, the same shall be 
their fate. For 
1009 
behold, the Earth shall throw up the smallest bit of water and it 
ruineth all the cities of the Gentiles. How much greater shall be 
the ruin should She throw the whole sea upon them? But behold, 
the Gentile puffeth himself up and relieth upon the arm of his own 
flesh. Wherefore, because of his great pride, the Earth hath no 
need of great demolitions, but a span or two shall sink the cities of 
the Gentiles and the people shall be put to a great flight. 
24. Yea, so great shall be the pride in the hearts of the Gentiles in 
the days of their discomfort that they shall not even look into the 
books of their own history and see the folly of their custom. Nay, 
they turneth not the head from side to side to look at the world as 
it verily is, but stiffening the neck and bowing the back, they 
march headlong into destruction with the discipline of a finely 
tuned army. 
25. Nay, wonder not at all that I shall have chosen such to fulfill 
my mighty purpose, for behold, it is this same pride of which I 
shall make good advantage. Yea, with the same dedication with 
which they march into their own disruption shall they also spread 
word of greater things to come and of a restoration which they 
shall think they had already accomplished, but that they shall only 
be preparing. Yea, like John in the wilderness, I shall utilize them 
to prepare a way for greater things to come. 
26. But ere that restoration come to pass, they shall very nearly be 
the ruin of all the land. Yea, the Earth suffocateth under their 
stewardship and the air hangeth heavy. Surely the Destroyer 
traverseth to and fro, and none escapeth the scythe and the sickle 
in those days. 
27. In one year the rivers overflow and the next they dry up. In one 
year the corn sprouteth in abundance but lack at harvest, while 
the next it sprouteth not at all. And upon coasts of the West Sea 
the rain refuseth, while upon the East snow! But then the leaf 
drieth up and the tree dieth. All nature shall be in commotion 
because of the pride of the Gentiles! 
28. And in his awful pride, the Gentile thinketh in his heart, here 
is a crisis most dire, but I shall repair it! Yea, none but the mighty 
can restore it, wherefore, it is my task, for am I not mighty? Am I 
not wise in all the ways of the world? Then who could be so 
competent as myself to restore all these things as they were in the 
day of my great comfort? 
29. And he goeth to work directing people to move hither and 
thither, counting them and taxing them as they go, that he might 
have all things as they once were. And the people shall perish 
because of his policy, but he doth not see it. And behold, all the 
people shall do as he commandeth, braying as they go, but go 
nonetheless they shall. All save a small Remnant walketh to and 
fro braying. These same looketh up into heaven and curseth 
because of their lack. Of such is the pride and the folly of the 
Gentile in the last days, even the fullness of the 
1010  times of the Gentiles. But the Remnant looketh up into 
heaven and are full of praise and thanksgiving, even in adversity. 
30. Yea, out of thy loins shall spring a Remnant that shall do not 
foolish things to call themselves wise. They think not about all the 
comfort that once was, but of the abundance that existeth in the 
good day in which I do place them. They perceive with eyes wide 
open and strive to provide for themselves and for their neighbor. 
And, what is more, in their striving they seek not to hurt the 
Earth, but to replenish Her according as I have commanded. They 
shall be blessed, for, whereas the Gentile seeth only his lack, the 
Remnant standeth in full view of the abundance of the Earth. It is 
a blessed generation that standeth in holy places in those days! 
31. Wherefore, be thou of very great cheer! Yea, rejoice thou in thy 
posterity! For they raise up that generation which seeth the Lord 
and walketh with Him face to face, as one man walketh with 
another. And they talk with the Master even as one man talketh 
unto another. I shall make mine abode with them and I shall not 
hesitate to call them my friends! And what is there in this that 
bringeth not joy into the hearts of their fathers and comfort into 
the hearts of their mothers? 
32. And the man of God is easily distinguished in those days. Yea, 
he puffeth not himself up, and the woman is not haughty. The 
husband abuseth not his privilege and the wife is equitable. The 
husbandman tilleth without extortion and the artisan seeketh not 
to abase his fellow. In council they are not prideful and in policy 
they serve each other equally without division. 
33. And they have all things in common, but they esteem not 
riches. Wherefore, there are no beggars among the Remnant. But 
behold, they long since ceased all contention concerning the 
foundation, for they walk with me and they talk with me. 
Wherefore, wherein might contention arise? And because they 
walk with me and talk with me, there is not one that standeth 
above another in rank, or file, or authority. Behold, the Remnant 
doth choose Councils for governance and for policy, but there is 
none among them that riseth up above another. 
34. And here is another sign unto thee, that the times of which I 
speak hath surely come; behold, the Remnant shall consecrate 
their time, talents, and their surplus unto me, yea, and they shall 
make their hands and feet holy. But this doth not mean that they 
take all that they have and surrender it up to some steward. Nay, 
but they are the stewards and need not such regulation. And 
behold, this is the right way. 
35. And many in that day contesteth, saying: 
1011 
36. Behold! They follow not this Order or that Order, wherefore, 
they cannot be the people of the Lord. But I say unto thee, they 
who say such things need only look to my own record and study my 
teachings and they shall see things differently. For, when I was on 
the Mount and taught many people, behold the day extended and 
they did hunger and thirst. And I asked of my disciples what there 
was to eat, and there were some loaves and but a few fishes. And 
when I did begin to break bread, behold all the people come forth 
with the little that they had with them and we did break together. 
And when we had all thus supped of the surplus, there was yet a 
surplus, and this was deemed a miracle, for so it was! 
37. But come, let us reason together. Did I ask of the people to 
bring all that they had with them and add it with our own? I did 
not. Did they give up their oxen and their asses? Did they render 
unto me, or to some steward, their houses and their goods? Nay! 
But they stepped forward with that surplus which they had with 
them and together all our bellies were filled. Behold, let this be a 
sign unto thee that the times of which I speak have surely come at 
last, and that I am at work bringing about the restoration of all 
things. 
38. And the Remnant debateth not doctrine and constraineth no 
man to believe this way or that way. Behold, they shall not argue 
over the purity, but all shall receive my doctrine from me and 
confirm it by the Holy Ghost. And no man judgeth the pure from 
the impure, nay, nor the worthy from the unworthy. For the 
Father hath given all judgment unto me, wherefore, how judgeth 
man his neighbor? But each man judgeth in his own heart that 
which he doeth, and constraineth none to do likewise. This shall 
also be a sign of such times. For behold, it is the Gentile that 
seeketh that all men believe as he believeth, but not so the 
Remnant. Yea, though he preacheth and teacheth, though he 
expoundeth and exhorteth, yet the Remnant constraineth not, nor 
preventeth. For behold, he knoweth not all things, as I do. 
Wherefore, he leaveth judgment unto He who is mighty to judge. 
39. And sin shall not be done away, but the pure in heart doth 
always avoid it. And when, perchance, he doth fall into sin, behold, 
he repenteth speedily. And if he repenteth not, he is not of the 
Remnant, and surely you may know it. 
40. And they marry in my name and the man covenanteth with me 
to make it a holy union. Yea, they make alliance, and the woman 
convenanteth with me to sanctify it. And the man and the woman 
are faithful to their covenant, for it is my covenant of marriage. 
And if they remain faithful to that covenant I shall make their 
union lasting, even as the Father and the Mother have made their 
union lasting. 
41. And they beget sons and daughters and consecrate them unto 
me with an holy ordinance. Yea, and I do visit blessings upon all 
who doeth this thing in my 
1012 
name. For, though the child belongeth unto the parent for a 
season, even so, if the parent offereth up the child, that I might 
make a holy adoption, I shall cause that they shall have 
association together for all eternity. For behold, all they who 
believe on me hath the Father given unto me. Wherefore are we all 
one relation which doth stand for time, as also for eternity – worlds 
without end. 
42. And they shall baptize in my name, having the Holy Ghost to 
accompany them. And this baptism shall be by the baptism of 
John, even the baptism by emersion. Or it shall be by the Baptism 
of the Ammonihah, even the baptism of Itsipi, which is acceptable 
to me. Yea, they baptize when the age of accountability is reached, 
wherein the man or the woman knoweth my will, that they might 
take upon them my name and become mine indeed. And they shall 
also baptize in order that they may emulate that sacrifice which I 
have made for them. Behold, this is my church, all my relations. 
And they do baptize again whenever the Spirit doth manifest. And 
they do baptize again when they receive of me my commission. 
And, in fine, they do baptize often and for diverse reasons and 
purposes, but all these purposes are in me and for my name‟s 
sake. 
43. Yea, the Remnant walk the earth and their walk and talk is 
made holy by the Peacemaker whose spirit they carry within them. 
And the Holy Ghost shall be their constant guide and companion, 
confirming in them all that is right and true. Wherefore, they have 
both that same comforter which the Father gave after that I 
departed out of the midst of the people, and also they have the 
Second Comforter, which is a restoration into my presence. 
44. Behold, the Remnant supporteth their relations and upholdeth 
they whom I have called to serve me in my purposes. And when 
they are constrained to commerce, all their business is done in 
honesty of heart and cheerfulness of spirit. And this is their 
comportment when they are constrained to commerce. But when 
they are at home with their relations, behold, they make no 
commerce at all, but give freely of their substance, receiving 
gratefully again. This shall be that which the world shall look upon 
with distrust, and the wise man calleth it peculiar. Nevertheless, it 
is my way and they shall walk in my paths. 
45. Yea, they shall restore the High Place and there shall stand 
once again a Kohath at the door of mine holy house, that a living 
sacrifice may be made again. Yea, and they shall prepare the 
hearts of the children to receive again of the hearts of the fathers, 
wherefore, the Earth shall not be wasted at my coming. Yea, 
through thy descendents, and those of thy fellows, even the 
Remnant of the house and family of Lehi left in the land, I shall 
restore the Sons and Daughters of Levi to their legal and rightful 
bishopric, and their sacrifice shall be acceptable before me. 
1013 
46. And they shall begin again to observe the ordinances of the 
High Place, and they shall institute Shabboth in my name. Yea, 
they shall celebrate again that good news which I shall bring up 
into their hearts, and they shall sing a new song. And behold, my 
holy house shall once again be a happy house, and one full of 
praise and thanksgiving. Behold, their joy shall be my joy and I 
shall not prevent them. 
47. And if thou remainest faithful in the good day in which I have 
placed thee, unto thee shall I grant that thou mayest see the 
doings of thy children, even that faithful Remnant, and even thou 
shalt walk and talk with them from time to time to instruct them. 
Wherefore, blessed art thou, my servant Eapalekthiloom, for thou 
shalt be remembered in that day and thy doings shall be an 
ensample unto the Remnant. Yea, and I shall cause that thy name 
shall be given again unto my servants in that day, as a 
remembrance of thee. 
48. Yea, it may even be said in those days that the restoration 
could not come, save that the Remnant return again unto their 
fathers. And they shall look upon the vistas of time, for I shall go 
before them, and they shall see thy day, Eapalekthiloom, and 
because of it they shall bring again a blessed time. And behold, 
even though their numbers may be few, yet shall I rejoice in the 
restoration of all things that all come because of their faithfulness. 
49. Wherefore, seest thou how great a blessing shall come into the 
world because of thy diligence? For, were it not for the record that 
thou shalt make of thy doings, and also the many records which I 
shall cause to fall into the hands of my servants in those days, 
there could never be a restoration. Therefore, lift up thine eyes and 
be cheerful. For out of thy loins shall spring a fruitful bough, as 
Joseph of old. And out of thy posterity shall a blessing come upon 
all the Earth. Amen. 
50. And when all were baptized, behold, the Holy Ghost did come 
in upon us all and we were filled with joy. And many did break 
forth in marvelous songs and exclamations. And still others spoke 
in strange tongues, while still others did interpret for them. And 
others lifted up their eyes unto heaven and saw wondrous things. 
And many sang and danced because of their joy. 
51. And I did take each of them and I did touch them and pray 
with them. Yea, and I did share much Sacred Breath with them. 
And with ceremony I did set them apart, laying hands upon them 
and pronouncing upon them such things the Holy Ghost did give 
me for utterance. For the Holy Ghost did come again into them to 
be their companion, wherefore, the things I spake unto them were 
confirmed in them even as I did speak them. 
52. And I did organize them that each Lodge might have its own 
Peli. And I did also make some teachers and some administrators 
according to their talents. 
1014  And in this way did I organize the Peli into a body of elders 
and teachers for the benefit of the people. Yea, and it was done in a 
manner most pleasing unto our Maker. And this we were all sure 
of because of the manifestations and gifts of the Spirit which did 
testify of the rightness of our pursuit. 
53. Yea, there was no great or wise man to tell us that we did 
rightly, only the Holy Ghost and the manifestations and gifts of the 
Spirit. But we are confident in all that we accomplished in the 
name of the Peacemaker in the day that we did re­establish His 
ways among our own people.
