Who are the remnant?
For my purposes, they are the descendants of Joseph as referred to in the Book or Mormon as well as in the Mentinah archives. Both contain histories of these people.
Our story begins with Abraham who obtained the keys to the Patriarchal priesthood. This Priesthood in particular, came down to us from our father Adam, who was the seeding creator and progenitor of the species of this planet as it pertains to us. The order of this patriarchal system is passed down to all descendants of Adam and carried within their blood line.
All people carry priesthood, and inherit gifts and powers from their respective family lines. People are called to be and do and exercise their powers according to their own worthiness, and appointed by the general consensus of mankind as administered by those in charge of representing us and our interests. Many of these work anonymously and are not always known or seen by the fledgling peoples of this planet.
The ruling patriarchs are appointed by the most worthy, with preference being given to the right of the firstborn, or oldest worthy family line. Special note being given to the term worthy. Only the worthy are appointed and given commissions in the priesthood orders. So claims to authority by virtue of lineage and rights of the firstborn and also claims from confirmation and ordinations to and from certain priesthood lines and or personages become irrelevant. Every human being has priesthood of some kind or another. It is worthiness which allows the person to be appointed and commissioned to function in whatever priesthood capacity they may have.
In the biblical days of the judges, the priesthood was carried in the bloodline of all Israelites. Samson never claimed any priesthood. He just grabbed a jawbone of an ass and went to work. The fact is, he inherited the gift and power to do so by priesthood. But he exercised the power of a judge in Israel because he was worthy and had the ability to be and do so.
Abraham obtained the ruling patriarchal priesthood over the family of Adam. He was blessed and all kindreds of the earth were to be blessed through the authority continued in his blood line.
If the most worthy person does not have the priesthood in his bloodline, there is the available power of adoption, where the most worthy is adopted into that family line. A notable example of this is Jesus. He inherited the keys to the political kingdom, from King David of the tribe of Judah, which tribe inherited the order of priesthood of the political order of kings. It was by this authority he was able to be crucified for the sins of the world and grant a civil pardon to the inhabitants. But he could also claim lineage from King David by way adoption from his stepfather Joseph.
Joseph inherited the patriarchal order which presides over the family of Adam from his grandfather Abraham. And the keys were passed on to Saint Peter. Hence, the Pope and the Orthodox patriarchs get their line via St. Peter. But the Ruling patriarchal order went to the Tribe of Joseph with a preference given the the tribe of Ephraim.
It was this patriarchal order that was brought to the Americas by The book of Mormon father Lehi. And then on to the modern day native Americans. The native Americans also have the bloodline of King Zedekiah of the tribe of Judah as well as the bloodline from Aaron of the tribe of Levi.
Some British Ephraimites obtained a limited authority via The LDS Church. It has been prophesied that they would become abusive and the authority would be passed on to the native Americans. These are the remnant of which I refer to.
This remnant was to have blood intermingled with Jesus. Jesus is the son of Adam who's anonymity has been cloaked in the office of Michael the archangel. In other words, Adam is and holds the office of Michael the archangel.
Since Jesus is the son of Adam, he carries the priesthood of the archangels in his bloodline. This is one of the reason Jesus's bloodline is to establish a race of people called the branch and also the remnant in the end days. Again, it is based on worthiness.
If a person becomes worthy and lacks the bloodline, the option of adoption in Jesus's family or any family is available.
The plan and method of establishing a one people is in the intermingling of all races on the planet with particular emphasis on the bloodline of Jesus. The eclecticism of eighteenth-century France is an of example of a movement in sexual politics which allowed the intermingling of the blood lines on a larger scale. The free love movement of the 60's is another example. This is part of the blueprint and design of Humanity's growth. Polygamy was implemented for this purpose as well. Although the principle and purpose has been misunderstood and abused. The object was for the people with a strong amount of certain bloodlines to intermingle with other races and multiply on a large scale. Not for long term control, slavery or for sensual gratification. Rather, the idea was for people to have very short term affairs to allow for mingling of the blood lines with minimal commitments and not the long term commitments which were the cause of so much suffering and enslavement of family groups of women and children to one man.

Begin on page 303:
Indeed, most of them shall be sundered from their own people by blood and
by culture. Yea, they shall be part one people and part another, and the blood of
Israel, as also the blood of the Gentiles shall flow through them. They shall be a
remnant of all people who shall dwell upon the face of the earth. Wherefore,
their confusion in many things shall be great and they will call upon your
wisdom, or rather that wisdom which you have seen fit to record and set down for
Many key priesthood holders of the planet work anonymously. This is because of human weakness and misunderstanding of the principals. John the Beloved holds one of the more prominent offices. He became a translated being or an angel and is said to be working among the mortals of this planet. The quarm of four angels having authority over the four quarters of the earth remain among the mortals in anonymity. The three nephites are members of this quarm. The city of Enoch is host to a race of angels. Some of them work among the mortals in anonymity. Their priesthood lineage remains unknown unless they have a reason for revealing their office and identity.
Notable archangels tend to reveal their identity more often.
This is why people need to develop the inner resonance of their divine origins to know the truth of all things revealed. There is a language of the Holy Ghost, and only those who have this gift can know the truth of things revealed by angels in disguise.
They are the remnant. The rest of the artificial intelligence in the world are deaf and blind to this language. The remnant will have the gift of the Holy Ghost and will have gifts and powers according to their heritage, priesthood confirmation, worthiness and abilities. The remnant are not limited to any one race of people. The movement has been prophesied by native American elders to be spearheaded by their decendants.

25. Behold, it is good that we have kept our records well away from our places
of dwelling and from our cities. For, had we not, they too shall have been
despoiled. And I know that they shall come forth out of the dust in some far
distant future and my descendants shall once again know their grandfathers. For,
of all the things that our society shall lose, one thing shall be preserved. Yea, the
records of our doings shall last through these times and the Lord shall bring them
once again to the light of day.
And also keep your records, for this shall be of
great worth to your posterity. Yea, in the last days, your words and your
teachings shall guide and inform the restoration of all things.
17. Wherefore, we do build up our High Places upon hallowed ground. Yea,
the sacred places of our relations in times past do become once again sacred
places for us. And we know that the same shall happen once again in this place,
for the Peacemaker restores every good thing. And behold, the good that we do
here will be remembered of the earth and the land will remember the healing that
has taken place here. Yea, and when the Lord does bring again His people to
possess the land, they shall surely find that which we have hidden up for them
and because of that which we have written, surely the land will be made whole
again. Yea, of a surety, the Nemenhah will restore the waste places.
18. Yea, behold, I have seen them and I know their doing. They shall revere
once again the land and cease to abuse it. And they shall learn to use the land
829with thanksgiving and make a sacred walk upon her. Every step upon the earth
shall they call blessed and they shall walk upon her with a song of thanksgiving
upon their lips and in their hearts. Surely, they shall restore all things carefully.
19. Behold, I do not say that they shall be so numerous as the Nemenhah in our
day. Nay, there shall be many people in this land, but the Nemenhah shall not be
many. They shall come in small groups and in families and build up their waste
places. And they shall not come with great possessions or with riches, but with
only that which they require to establish themselves once again in the land. And
none will be jealous of them, for they shall have little of that which the world
desires. Yea, the world shall not consider them at all, for they will have none of
that which the world esteems. But they shall be filled with the purposes of the
Peacemaker and they shall have Zion in their hearts. Is this not riches enough?
20. But behold, they shall build up the High Place again and their settlements
shall restore that which was once lost in this land. And behold, many of them
will be descended from a race of people whom the Peacemaker might have
established in this land in prior generations, but they would not. But they unto
whom the Peacemaker shall reveal these records, many of them shall descend
from those same who were condemned of the Lord because they would not fulfill
His purposes, but preferred to build up a nation unto themselves. Out of them
shall spring up a remnant and they shall combine with the remnant of Lehi left in
the land. Together they shall build up and restore many things.
21. Yea, the purification of the Ammonites shall be restored by them. And they
shall, also, baptize often and celebrate the sacraments of the Lord again in
righteousness. Surely, the Sons and Daughters of Levi and of Aaron shall make a
sacrifice again, one that shall be acceptable to the Peacemaker. And by and by,
as they restore the ordinances of the High Place, the people shall begin again to
understand things as they really are, and there shall be peace again in the land.
22. Behold, they shall be cleansed from the iniquity and filth of the world and
they shall be anointed with the oil of sacrifice. They shall know their Lord and
they shall hear His voice. There shall be fidelity and love in their settlements and
they shall, line upon line, learn once again to have all things in common. And
behold, they shall call themselves blessed, for these are the things which do
prepare men and women to walk upon the Way.
23. And the condemnation under which their forefathers labored for six
generations shall be lifted in them and their ordinances and all that they do for the
Lord shall be acceptable once again before Him. Yea, their condemnation shall
be lifted, they who descend from out of that generation which did not what the
Lord commanded them. And also they among them who descend from out of our
loins, who had become a hiss and a byword to all nations, shall raise up their
830heads and speak with mighty words. Yea, they shall sing again the song of the
righteous because the days of their patience shall have been completed.
24. They shall not surely cover the face of the land, as we do. But behold, they
shall begin again to heal the earth and to prepare her for the coming of the
Peacemaker. They shall be His disciples and His children. Yea, and through
them shall He heal the hurts that have been done to the earth.
25. Behold, and this shall be a sign and a surety that the Peacemaker has again
lifted up the hands that hang down. For they shall call themselves Nemenhah and
they shall hurt no more the Earth, but all that they do therein shall be a healing
thing. Surely, the Earth shall bless them.
26. For they shall have hurt the Earth in everything that they did know by her.
Yea, they cut down the tree and hew it. But this is not enough, for they waste
most of it to make some few usable pieces with which to build. And when they
build, the structure is all sticks and air. Wherefore, they do create of the Earth
that which can be attached to their houses of air. And they dig up the Earth and
plate it, and this they attach to their houses to make them solid. But the walls of
their houses are still but sticks and air, wherefore, they fill them with waste to
keep out the cold.
27. And this shall be a sign of those times, that there shall scarcely be one thing
that the men and women who shall inhabit this land shall use for houses, or for
raiment, or for food , or to move about upon the land, that they do not buy from
others. Yea, and if I were to visit them in their homes and in their shops, behold,
there might not be one or two things in them that they shall have made with their
own hands or even that was made by an artisan of their own village.
28. And in that day, a man shall labor in order that he might buy his living, but
his labor shall not provide sufficiently. Yea, and in all that he does labor, he
cannot be satisfied. For with what little of gold and silver that he does earn for
his day‟s labor, he shall be only able to purchase the day‟s sustenance. And this
shall be a kind of thralldom unto them, for all the people of the land shall thus
wear out their lives in labor that does not satisfy.
29. But behold, the Lord shall work upon the hearts of a few, that they shall
turn away from this slavery. And they shall go into the wilderness and take up
again the good earth. And they shall cast up their walls as we do, and their
houses shall no longer be things of air, but they shall be solid as the ground upon
which they shall stand. And they shall produce with their own hands again that
30. And among the little flock, behold, there shall be no more of aimless labor,
for they shall have sufficient for their needs, but also a little surplus. And they
831shall not seek to buy up the things of the Earth, but they shall cherish her and take
good care of her. Yea, and in this shall they receive but little acclaim and the
world shall not esteem them, but the Earth shall bless them abundantly.
31. And behold, the Lord shall surely instruct them in this thing, and it shall be
a great ensample unto them. For, many shall say unto them, when they go out to
begin their enterprise, that such things cannot be. Yea, they shall scoff and
32. You must build the way all things are built, for it is the way of the world.
Yea, and if you choose to build another way, it shall be to your hurt. Why think
you to be different than all people? Come, build your homes properly. Work
with your might and all will be well with you.
33. But behold, the manner of building in that day shall be so wasteful and
costly that a man shall have to become a slave to the possession in order to
provide shelter for his family. Yea, and the woman must also go out from the
home to labor for the upkeep of her children. And this shall be because of the
wastefulness of the manner in which they shall build all that they build. Yea, and
there shall not be one thing built in that day that shall not be so costly as to
require the break up of the family.
34. But the Lord shall teach a more excellent way, both in spirit and in body.
For He is the Creator and the Peacemaker. Shall He desire man to use up the
earth and to consume it all up? Behold, He shall not. Wherefore, He shall
instruct His remnant even in all that they must do to restore the earth. And He
shall begin this schooling in the manner in which they shall build their dwellings
and their meeting places and even their High Places.
35. Yea, where the world shall teach them that their High Places should be built
of the most costly goods, in order that proper reverence shall be given unto the
God of Heaven, behold, He shall teach them to build with humility. Yea, their
High Place shall seem very low when esteemed by the eyes of the world. Behold,
in this shall the Lord teach His people to heal the Earth.
36. And when they go to adorn their High Places, shall they fill them up with
the costly things of the world? For this shall be the habit and the custom of their
times. Yea, when the world builds a temple, behold, it is filled with costly and
fine furnishings. But this shall not be so among the Lord‟s remnant in the last
days. For they shall sit them down with but a blanket between them and the earth
from which they did cast up the bench. And when they build a chair, it shall be
the work of their own hands, or of the hands of a neighbor. And the floors upon
which they stand shall not be made of stone cut and crafted by unknown hands in
unknown lands, but it shall be earth that is poured and cast, and when they walk
upon it, it shall sustain them gently.
83237. And this shall be an ensample unto them, that they do the will of the Lord.
For, the way of the world does use up the good thereof. But behold, the way of
the Lord does sustain and edify. The way of the world does destroy the will of
man to do good, for all his labor must go to the using up of the Earth. But the
way of the Lord does edify him, for his labor shall return unto him a blessing
from the Earth.
38. But behold, this thing shall be hateful to the world, but in this there is
wisdom, also, in the Lord. For, if the world does hate a thing, the world does
avoid it. Yea, and when the world shall judge this ensample of the Lord, behold,
the remnant shall be esteemed as a thing of poverty and want. Yea, who shall
molest them? For they shall have nothing that the world might desire of them.
Who shall covet a house made of earth? Yea, when all the world esteems that
retreat from useful labor into which men and women shall have fallen as virtuous,
who shall covet the house built of such labor? Nay, the world shall think itself
above such things.
39. But in the day in which the Peacemaker shall whisper again in the ears of
them that hear, the remnant shall take up again the Earth without hurt. And they
shall no more cut down the tree to waste the more part of it. But they shall learn
providence again and they shall care for the Earth. And behold, when they do
this thing, the Earth shall give forth abundantly and they shall have sufficient for
their needs, for they shall not have enslaved themselves to the costly thing.
40. And they shall learn from this ensample that the wisdom of their shepherds
has been foolishness. Yea, they have been taught from their youths to labor with
their might, that they might have security in their homes and in their families.
But, because the shepherds teach them to labor for the things of the world, they
shall enslave all the people.
41. But when they do take up the Earth again, without hurt, but with an eye
single to the service of their God, they shall cease to esteem the costly as security.
Yea, they shall see once again that the Earth does provide abundantly for those
whose hearts are not bent on destroying her and on using her up. And the Earth
shall loosen the bonds of their captivity and she shall gently remove the shackles
of their slavery.
42. Yea, and the scales shall fall from off their eyes and they shall see more
clearly. And in all else that they do that does use up the Earth, they shall begin to
curb themselves. Yea, they shall cease to buy with silver and gold that which
does not edify, and the Earth shall give abundantly all that which cannot be
bought with money. Yea, their eyes shall be opened and they shall see as they
have not seen before, the wonder and majesty and beauty of the Earth around
833them. And she shall hold them in her embrace and they shall feel again the love
of the mother which gives them life.
43. These are the doings of the Lord‟s remnant whom He shall bring once again
into this land. And behold, they shall be in the midst of a great people,
wherefore, do not marvel that I say that the Lord shall bring them once again.
The Gentiles shall cover all the face of the land, and yet, the land shall not claim
them as her relations. Wherefore, the blessing and the curse that lies upon this
land shall affect them, and they shall all be in bondage. But there shall be the
seeds of liberty planted by their forefathers yet living in their breasts and this
shall be enough to ensure that the Lord‟s remnant shall have peace to establish
44. For, it shall be for the sake of this liberty, which the Gentiles shall cherish
above all things, that some measure of freedom shall be granted unto they who
turn from the getting of gain, even unto the establishing of Zion in the land. For
behold, the manner of thralldom under which the Gentile nations shall place all
the people, shall be in the love of gold and of silver. Wherefore, they shall build
up their cities and their towers and they shall hurt the Earth. And it shall be the
hurting of the Earth that shall form a foundation for the subjugating of the people.
For, when they hurt the Earth for the sake of gain, behold, their gain shall become
slippery and hard to hold. And all their labor shall not be sufficient to hold onto
the things they deem to be precious. Yea, their day‟s labor shall not be enough to
buy their day‟s needs. Wherefore, they shall wear out their lives for the sake of
gain, but they shall be old and have gained nothing. Now, all this shall be
because they do hurt the Earth to get their gain from it.
45. Now, the Lord‟s remnant shall not seek after gold nor silver, but shall seek
after that true abundance that can only be acquired by that people who nurture
and care for the Earth. Yea, and they shall find true riches in the abundance
which comes from her bosom, and their labor shall satisfy. Wherefore, in the
midst of slavery, wherein all men shall labor for the governors for their bread, the
Nemenhah shall eat of the bread of life and be filled. And in the midst of
bondage, wherein all men labor with their might to provide wine for the
governor, the Nemenhah shall drink of the wellspring and they shall not thirst.
46. And behold, the governors shall not esteem them at all, because they shall
have not gold nor silver nor any manner of gain. Wherefore, they shall be hidden
amidst the host and shall not be discovered. For behold, only they who have
substance whereby the governors might gain shall warrant their attention. And
how can a man who eats from the Earth that which he has planted and lives in a
house made of that same earth wherein he does plant, have wherewithal to be
834taken from him evensomuch that the governors might pay even the cost of taking
it from him?
47. So greatly blessed shall that man be, for he shall not be seen nor esteemed.
Yea, in the midst of the thrall there shall be slaves enough, and he who has not
shall not be desired. And the Earth shall be so despised that he who shall stretch
forth his hand to embrace her and care for her, shall also have no merit and no
beauty that shall be desired by the world. Even so shall the Lord instruct His
people and bring them once again.
Now, this is not all that I have seen concerning that time in which the Lord
shall bring this record into the light. Behold, I am blessed of the Lord
exceedingly. For I did ask of Him to reveal the times and the seasons, and
behold, He has shown unto me many things. Yea, and I have seen the times and
the seasons surrounding the restoration of Zion in this land in the latter days.
And this is a choice land, a land of covenant. Upon it lies a blessing and a
cursing, and this is the will of the Lord. And it is also His will that the Gentiles
shall also be brought to a knowledge of Him and of His Zion. Wherefore, He
shall drive them into this land. And because of the blessing and the curse, they
shall learn more of Him and of His ways than they could have should they remain
in their own land. Wherefore, He shall drive them. Yea, with the wind of their
own ambition, He shall toss them up upon the shore. And behold, He shall try
them in this land.
And He shall show unto them a beginning, even a commencement. And He
shall raise up prophets unto them, and unto them He shall give commandments
and instruction. But they will not. Yea, they will call themselves His Saints, and
yet they will not do what He bids them. They shall claim to speak in His name,
but their hearts shall shun the task He places before them.
Yea, He shall command them to go even unto the seed of the House of Lehi
left in this land, not to instruct them but to be instructed of them. But they shall
esteem them lower in station than they and shall shun the work which the Lord
shall lay upon them. And the Gentiles shall abuse and drive the remnant of Lehi
from place to place, because that they shall remind them ever of that which they
ought to have done in the name of the Lord, but that they chose abomination of
desolation in the stead thereof.
For the children of Lehi might have taught them to temper their lust for
gain. For, we have much in our history concerning the outcome of justice in this
land when the lust for gain does take control of the people and of the
government. And even they shall have the record of the Nephites as witness unto
835them of the same. But behold, they shall do unto the remnant of Lehi like as they
would do unto a beast of the field which is bought with gold and brought even to
Yea, I have seen what shall befall my own descendents at the hand of the
Gentiles. And I have seen how that the people shall suffer and perish. But
behold, they shall not be utterly destroyed, and because they shall not be utterly
destroyed, the Lord shall preserve that part of their customs that shall set them
apart from all the world. And even He shall raise up seers who will take of these
records which we leave in sacred places and they will translate them by His
peculiar power into their own tongues. Then shall He teach the Gentiles a mighty
And some of them shall take heed to His word and they will learn a new
and better way, casting away their lust for riches and looking only to that which
they need. But this shall not come without a true trying of their faith. Yea, in the
day that they cease to hide up their treasures against the day of need, but use them
abundantly to the good of many, then shall He graft them into the vine and they
shall be one with Lehi. Then are the times of the Gentiles fulfilled.
But behold, they who are grafted in shall not be many. For the whole world
shall lust after riches and the hearts of men and women shall not be upon the
good gifts of Heaven, but they shall seek every day to get more gain than the
previous. And with each day‟s passing, they shall hide up more of their precious
things, that they might be esteemed rich by their neighbor.
But a time shall come when they shall go even unto the place wherein they
have hid up their wealth, to withdraw it from its hiding place, but behold, it shall
not be found. Yea, it shall be taken from them. Or, if it is not taken, it shall have
lost its worth and shall not buy bread. And this disaster shall come upon all
people at once. Yea, and so great will the disaster be that whole peoples shall run
headlong before it and shall not be found in their place.
10. And even shall all nations be at the ready to tumble and fall to pieces, and
the governors and the rulers shall all shake their heads and wonder. Yea, and the
money lenders shall all flee, for there shall be no interest in anything. And the
merchant shall sit idly by, for there shall be no buying of his wares. And the
artificer shall set down his tools, for there shall be no profit in his hire. Yea, and
the mother shall have not that which might sustain her children, for her man shall
have no means to support her, though she have right claim upon him for her
11. You may believe it! And this shall be a sign unto you that the time of
refreshing shall be at hand, yea, even it shall be at the door. Behold, a man shall
not labor to build his own house, but shall sell his birthright to the money lenders
836for the means to engage other men to build him a house. And because of the
dearness and the cost of the house, he shall work the whole generation to pay the
lenders. And when he has paid the lenders and the house is free, behold, he will
discover that they whom he did engage to build the house made poor work of his
commission. Yea, the house shall have no value and shall fall, after a generation
of labor to redeem it.
12. And this sign shall be even the same upon all things made by the hands of
men. Yea, they shall pay dearly for all that they have, and yet the workmanship
shall be such that the object of their desire shall have no worth ere it is redeemed
with his labor. Yea, this shall be the bondage into which the man in the last days
shall sell himself. He shall be instructed by his shepherds in the things that he
must do in order that he might be respectable. But, when the stuff is redeemed
and he has worn out his life obtaining it, there is nothing but dust, and there shall
remain none who esteem him for his fugality and wisdom. Yea, his neighbors
shall not esteem him, for they know that he shall not esteem them in their
poverty. This is the nature of slavery that the nations shall thrust upon all people.
13. But the Lord‟s remnant shall learn of Him to cast off this bondage. Yea,
they shall be released from slavery because that they shall be instructed of Him.
And when men and women take up this stewardship again, as they did in the past,
behold, they shall begin to see all things differently. Because the house is the
beginning of the community, they shall take stewardship of that as well, and they
shall esteem all things differently. Yea, they shall see clearly that which they
esteemed of no value previously, and that which the world shall esteem low, shall
be riches unto them.
14. And they will cease to hide up their wages, but they shall begin to use them
for their immediate good. Yea, they shall work with their might to build a
tangible future and they shall take the Lord at His word, and live each day for its
own merit. And behold, they shall not be in bondage to their own future, for they
shall each day work toward a better future for all people.
15. Thus shall the Lord instruct them in the manner in which Zion is built in the
heart. Yea, it shall be through the building of His house that He shall instruct
them in the building of their own. Yea, and it shall be through His instruction,
yea, face to face, He shall be their mentor, and they shall learn the meaning of His
words. And the record of Heaven shall be written upon their hearts.
16. Behold, I declare it unto whom this record shall be lifted up; you shall
discover yourself in the midst of slavery and wonder that you could have wasted
your life in voluntary bondage. Yea, you shall have lived in that bondage all of
your life, without knowing it, and the discovery of it shall cause you to wonder.
837Your wise men shall have taught it to you and you shall have been raised up from
your youth believing it to be the best way.
17. Yea, and so virtuous shall all men have esteemed this slavery, that the
governors shall teach it in all the world. And they shall cause that many nations
shall sell themselves into this bondage. Yea, the governors shall do it, and the
people shall support them in it. And even many who do already live a more
perfect way, shall be compelled to lay down that better manner in which they
live, so that they might be esteemed equal in the eyes of the world. Behold, they
shall be made to lay down abundance and take up poverty, so that the world
might esteem them to be the same as other men.
18. But the governors and the shepherds shall not esteem men to be men and
women to be women in those days. Nay, men shall be but the means to produce
gold, and the women shall be but a sack of provender. And a man may not stand
and declare himself, for he is not a son, but so many hours of labor. And a
woman may not stand and proclaim her generations, for she is not a daughter, but
so much stuff to be counted and stored.
19. This is the evil that shall mark the fulfilling of the times of the Gentiles.
Behold, in eight generations they shall have lifted themselves up from weakness
into great might, and they shall rule the world. And all nations shall bow for a
time before their obvious superiority and their opinion shall be greatly esteemed
by all the rulers of the world. But, ere the ninth generation fails and the tenth
generation culminates, the eyes of the world shall be opened and the rulers of the
nations shall no longer be blinded by the riches of the Gentiles. For they shall all
see together that they have become slaves, and that, even with all the riches of the
world, there is no virtue in bondage.
20. And men shall once again stand in their lot, sons of God, and declare
themselves. And women shall proclaim their generations, daughters of God, and
they shall take up abundance. And the esteem of the world shall fail in their eyes,
for they shall walk and talk with the Peacemaker. Yea, they shall esteem not gold
nor silver, but they shall know their own worth and they shall esteem that
abundance that comes of the liberty of the soul.
21. And they shall cast down the slavery into which they were sold and which
they were educated to uphold and revere. They shall walk away from all that the
world taught was sweet and desirable, but has made bitter and good for refuse.
That which the world esteems highly, shall be distasteful to the remnant. Yea,
that for which all men labor and wear out their lives shall be hateful to the Lord‟s
remnant in the day that He shall teach them.
22. Yea, they shall be ashamed of the ways and the customs of their fathers and
their grandfathers, for they shall be such ways as shall cause the destruction of
838the earth and the losing of all that she does freely offer her children. And the
Remnant shall take up the earth into their hands, not to spitefully use it, but to
make sacrifice for it. Yea, when the Sons of Levi do offer again a sacrifice in
righteousness, then shall the Lord restore all things. And when the Daughters of
Levi do make sure their offering again, then shall He keep His promises that He
made unto the Children of Lehi, to restore them in their bishopric.
I believe that this record will come into the hands of my descendents for a
good purpose in the Lord, for He has shown them to me and my heart is returned
to them. Yea, the Peacemaker has shown me that my few words, and the record
of the establishment of our people in this country shall be of benefit to my
children in the last days.
And I perceive that they will be a dispossessed people and shall give up
their homeland for money, and this shall become a great stumbling block to them.
But, in time, they shall return once again to the knowledge of their ancestors and
they shall begin again to establish themselves in their own land and become a
And the record of my words shall flow unto them through one whose
connection with them is far sundered. Nevertheless, help shall come to them
from diverse quarters and in diverse means. Wherefore, I do greet you, my
children, and I do commend this record unto you.
I do not mean to suggest that this record narrates the beginning of people in
the region, for there were people here when we arrived whose origins are their
own. But to my children I say this, your history is known and written. Your
grandfathers and grandmothers came into these coasts and these mountains from
a far country and they established themselves in villages and settlements. And I
see that you shall have little before your eyes to prove my words to you. Your
wise men shall say that this record is a mere fancy. Notwithstanding, I witness it
unto you, that you are Nemenhah, even the People of the Spirit, and your
ancestors remember you.
And behold, your sacred sacrifices, your ceremonies, your healing ways and
all that you utilize to relieve suffering, yea, in fine, all that you make in the day
that these things shall come even unto your shores and your mountains, are
remembered of your ancestors, who I assure you yet live and perceive your
doing. And behold, they are remembered of the Lord. Yea, your fathers and
your mothers do look upon you with great joy, for your healings, your
861ceremonies and celebrations, yea, and in fine, all that you do to raise up a joyful
and righteous sound unto heaven are heard by us.
And behold, we do celebrate with you. You may believe it. When you
make your ceremonies, we sit with you, and when you make your sacred dances,
we dance with you. Yea, when you hold the suffering in your arms and
administer unto them, behold, you hold them also in our arms, for we are in you
and with you. When you raise up a celebrative sound, behold, we sing with you
and when the sound of your drums rise up, we are there also. The smoke of your
pipes bring us nigh unto you and your prayers summon us. We are ministers unto
you and we bring peace into your hearts.
And this is the manner of our stewardship. Do not be amazed that I say that
we work among you and minister to you. I know that your holy people, your
priests and your seers and your healers, shall have taught you the truth of these
things. Yea, the world may scoff at you and call you childish, but doubt not.
Wherefore, do not be amazed that such utterances should come up to you even
out of the dust and that you should receive by the hand of a stranger, words from
10. Take that stranger by the hand and rejoice with him because the hearts of
your fathers are turned to you, and that your hearts are turned to them. Behold,
only this can prepare you to stand face to face with the Peacemaker. Only then
can you receive Him in your countenance. Yea, then shall the record of heaven
be written in you again. Amen.
In the last days, there will arise again in this land all the manifestations of
the healing ways of that Spirit which does quicken the Earth and all Her parts.
And behold, because of the work of prophets and seers, the Healers shall once
again arise from the midst of the people. Yea, and they shall do great wonders
and even miracles. The lame shall walk again, and the blind shall see. The
canker and the wasting shall be cleansed from the loins and from the sinews. The
ache shall relieve and the issue shall abate. Surely, the Healers shall once again
work with power and wonders shall not cease.
Yea, and these same shall extend the gifts they shall have received even to
the healing of the Earth, and behold, the Earth shall arise again from Her sickbed.
Yea, even as a man who has been stricken many months with a wasting and a
fever does rise himself up when the fever is broken. Yea, what man stays in bed
when the sickness has passed? But the Earth that does sustain you shall also arise
and make a commotion when the days of Her confinement are accomplished.
Yea, when the fever is broken and She does begin to shake out the linens of Her
862sickbed, behold, the gifts that have lain long dormant during the time of Her
ailment shall come again unto Her children.
And they who call themselves Nemenhah in those days shall be Healers.
Yea, they shall be Healers of the Earth and all that in Her dwells. For they shall
recognize once again that the soil upon which they depend is not property, but it
shall be a stewardship unto them. And they shall see with eyes that see, and they
shall realize that they have been taught an untruth in the name of God – that they
are masters of the Earth, to subdue it. But they shall open up their eyes and cast
down the scales from their sight, and they shall see that man is not the master of
the Earth, but the steward, and to keep the admonition of the Peacemaker is to
take good care of the Earth.
Behold, to till does not mean to rend. To harrow does not mean to shatter.
It is an unfortunate thing that the children of men shall take into their hearts in the
last days, that they interpret what is sacred into that which is unholy. Yea, they
take that which is good and make of it an evil. Because that God gave our first
parents dominion over all the Earth, behold how in the name of God the children
of men shall injure Her. In the last days, dominion shall have less to do with the
kingdom of God and our stewardship of it, and more to do with domination of all
But behold, in those same days, if a man call himself Nemenhah and yet
care not for the Earth, he shall be cast out from among them. And if a woman
call herself Nemenhah and deny the care of the Earth, they shall not abide her in
the Council. Yea, they who call themselves Nemenhah shall take up the Earth
again in cradling arms to nurture Her and to comfort Her. They shall surely see
things as they really are and shall no longer be blinded by the Gadiantonhem who
shall have paraded as their shepherds and their governors. They shall open up
their eyes and they shall take back up that stewardship which the Father gave
unto their parents.
And the Earth, even their Mother, shall reward them. Yea, She shall arise
from Her sickbed and bless them once again. And the cursing and the
condemnation under which they shall have labored for many years shall be lifted
from them, and they shall enjoy the great blessing that is laid upon this land.
Behold, part of this great blessing is that when they shall follow the
commandments of the Lord, they shall be prospered. And they shall have learned
this because of that little portion of the record of the Nephites and the Lamanites
which they shall have received of the Lord. But they shall esteem prosperity as
property. Wherefore, if there be any who have not property, the same shall be
condemned of them. And if there be any who have property, behold, these shall
they call prosperous. Wherefore, because of this interpretation, they shall not
863understand the condemnation under which they shall suffer, even to the sixth
But behold, when the Nemenhah shall arise out of the Remnant of the loins
of Lehi, they shall see again with eyes that see and they shall hear again with ears
that hear. Yea, to them prosperity shall mean a different thing, for, they shall care
for the Earth and magnify their stewardship. Yea, and She shall bless them and
magnify them in healing power. Yea, She shall extend to their hands even that
same healing by which She is healed.
Does this seem strange to you? Yet, you shall see all these things happen in
the days in which the Nemenhah shall once again take up their stewardship. Yea,
when you shall read these things, turn your head to and fro and see if these things
are not manifest. For the Peacemaker, even the Great Christ, is also called the
Great Healer, and He would have us become even as He is. It is for this cause
that, although we, each of us, have our stewardship in the foundation, yet are we
also trained as Healers, every one. And though there are those whose gifts are
very great, yet there are none among the Nemenhah who are not Healers
according to their own gifts and their own abilities.
And it is also for this cause that our historians have included all that could
be written about our manner of healing, that our descendents might know how we
esteem healing as part of our stewardship, yea, we consider it a commandment of
God. Wherefore, even they who feel they have no gift in healing are trained as
healers from their youth. And though all would prefer the administration of that
Healer whose gifts are strong and come from heaven, yet in their absence could
any one of us suffice to save the life and render competent aid. So much do we
esteem the admonition of the Peacemaker that we become as He is.
10. Now, this is not to say that all people administer, but rather that it is
difficult to find anyone among the Nemenhah who knows nothing of the healing
ways. Yea, the potter knows how to bind the wound, and the miller knows how
to soothe the burn, and the thatcher knows how to cool the blood. Yea, every
father and mother can render aid to their children and their old people, so that the
Healers are not overburdened with smaller matters.
11. Yea, and our historians also write how that the Nemenhah send to all the
world to find out their ways of healing and their medicines. Yea, in days of old,
our prophets walked in distant lands and our seers studied the ways of other
nations. And behold, all the knowledge that they learned in far away places, they
did also add unto our own. Wherefore, be not surprised to find how we did make
admission into our own language names of things from others.
12. In fine, it is the custom and the tradition of the Nemenhah to learn the good
and healing ways of all peoples and to bring them into the foundation. Yea, we
864accept the ways of many people, if they are healing ways, and this has been our
tradition from the beginning.
13. Or do you think that Hementah and Cumeni were of the same people and
tradition as Hagotl? And perhaps you consider Pa Hementem and Shi-Tugohah
of the same people as Hagmeni? They were not. For, Hagotl and Hagmeni were
of the Nephites in the Land Southward and Hementah and his brother were
Ammonites. Behold, the Nephites welcomed them in and gave them land to
make their inheritance, but they were never Nephites.
14. And the Nephite way was different than the Ammonite way, yet, when
Hagotl brought his company into the Land Northward, they were no more
Nephite nor Ammonite, but became Nemenhah every one of them. And they did
merge the ways of the Nephites that were good with the ways of the Ammonites
that were good. Yea, and their ways became one way.
15. Do you suppose that they argued over whose way was right or whose
traditions were better? Behold, I say unto you, they did not, but they did embrace
that which was good in both ways. Behold how their customs did emerge into a
better way. This is an ensample unto us and we continue in it to this day.
16. And behold, the people who shall emerge in the last days, yea, even that
people who shall call themselves Nemenhah, shall also have this custom and it
shall come from out of their own dust. Yea, we speak our ways into their hearts
and they, taking their own ways that are good, and also all the ways of all the
world that are also good, do also make an emergence.
17. For the unifying of all that is good is truly a teaching of the Peacemaker,
even Jesus Christ. Is it different than that which has been taught of Jesus in your
day? I cannot help that, for surely His teachings shall have been wrought upon
by wicked men. Nevertheless, these are His teachings as we have them, and they
18. Yea, it shall become the custom of all they who call themselves Nemenhah,
though it go against the custom of the fathers, yea and even their nation, to take
up the good teachings from all nations and make them their own. And it is
because of the words of this record that they shall do this thing, wherefore, our
ways and our customs shall live in them again.
19. And there shall be many who shall deride them because of this custom.
Yea, there shall be many who shall say: Behold how they have no thought of
their own! Behold, how they corrupt the ways of our fathers with the ways of
other people! Behold how they take up that which is sacred and taint it with the
customs and traditions of other people!
86520. But the Nemenhah shall not contend one with another over whose tradition
is better, if it is good. They shall have no contention if the matter is healing. For
their purpose shall be the healing of the Earth and the relieving of suffering.
Behold, theirs shall not be a jealous custom or a selfish tradition, but it shall be
for the good and benefit of all people. Wherefore, there shall be no contention
among them on these points, only debate and discussion to ascertain the goodness
or the badness of a custom or tradition.
21. And governors shall revile them for that they do bring together the
teachings of other peoples. But this custom they shall have received from those
of us who have spoken to them out of the Earth, their grandfathers and their
grandmothers. And behold, in the end, this custom shall be a protection for them.
For they shall make peace in all their words and doings, in a time when
dissentions shall threaten all nations.
22. And what little of our own traditions that shall survive shall be kept in the
legends and the stories that are told at the hearth alone. Yea, were it not for the
workings of the Spirit in the hearts of that Remnant of our posterity among whom
the Peacemaker shall make a great work in the last days, our ways and our
customs might be lost to history completely.
23. I am reminded of the blessing and the curse which has been placed upon
this land, that as long as the people do live the teachings of the Peacemaker, they
shall have peace and they shall prosper in the land. But, in the day that they leave
the teachings of the Peacemaker and seek their own way, that peace shall be lost
and their prosperity shall turn to calamity.
24. This is the prophecy that I leave with my people and unto a future race
which shall take up these records and use them as a schoolmaster to their own
actions. Be instructed by the generations that have left behind their own
warnings and prophecies concerning the land upon which you place your feet and
the days in which you live.
And these books have I also laid in
store in this library, according as the Peacemaker did teach me, in a not far distant
time, our descendents, even the fruit of our own bodies, shall take them up again.
Yea, and even because of these things which I lay in store, they shall make a
great restoration of all that shall be lost for a season.
And this restoration shall be seen in the visions that shall come to the wise
men and women of that time. They shall see it as a renewing, even a renewing of
the earth. And the ground shall rise up in their visions, as if to cover the whole
earth. And that which shall have disturbed and hurt the earth shall be covered up
with new soil. This is the delightsome thing that they shall see in their visions. I
say it is delightsome, for the earth shall have been sorely abused in their day and
how can the wise see a renewing of all things and not find delight in the vision?
Now, these are the books which are contained in the Library of Penlinisits:
the Archives of the Records of Mentinah and its People, the Archives of the
Records of Nespelhem and its People, the Archives of the Nemenhah of the
Coasts, the Books of Corianton, the Book of Remembrance of the Nemenhah of
Corianton, the Small Book of Tuilhah, the Greater Books of Tuilhah, the History
of Hagotlah, the Record of the Nemenhah of the Islands, Mor-Honayah‟s Record
of the End of the Nephite People, the Books of Akekthim, and the Record of the
Ancients of Penlinisits, the many books which do comprise the Teachings of
Pahmet Akekt and, finally, the Books of the Jaredites.
These are the books which the Peacemaker shall cause to come out of the
earth and to speak to my descendents, even the fruit of my loins. And He has
shown it to me in a vision upon the Way, that out of my own family He shall
raise up one of the prophets whom He shall use to bring about this great work.
Yea, and out of other families of the Nemenhah He shall raise up others, until the
work of translation is complete and all this library is had by the people.
Of all these books have I made many copies, that they may become
dispersed throughout all the Nemenhah. It is my hope that, because of the great
number of these libraries which I have caused to exist among my people, when
the Lord does move upon the hearts and the minds of the Remnant of the
Nemenhah, yea, even those sons and daughters of Lehi who are left in the land,
enough of our record might be revealed to them as to provide for them a warning
and a right model.
Behold, if you are among such as the Lord has shown unto me in vision, do
not as I shall show you that the Nemenhah of the Forests have done.
17. Yea, I doubt not that you have heard much prophecy concerning them,
wherefore, I shall not burden you with more of it. But I do come unto you with
instruction that will be for your preservation in your generation and in the
generation that shall come. But behold, three generations shall not pass before
many such men shall come and begin to fill up all the land between the East Sea
and the Missip. Yea, and in four generations, there shall be no more room for
you between the Missip and the Plains. And these Gentiles shall fill the whole
18. The Nemenhah shall be broken up and shall become a Remnant People.
Here and there shall the ancient ways of the People be preserved, and in the
books also shall the Sacred be hidden up for a time of restoration. And this is all
wisdom in the Lord, for the Gentile will perform for him a service but a little
while, ere He finish His work.
19. But behold, your people shall diminish, first with diseases for which you
will have little defense, for your Healers will not know them, and then with
bloodshed, for the Gentiles shall rule the Earth by the sword and they shall
conquer from one sea to the other. All this has been foretold, and you know it
well. But beware to do the things in which I now instruct you and you will enjoy
one or two generations of peace before the land is scourged.
20. Withdraw the Nemenhah up the Missip. Yea, call in all your villages from
out of the Isles of the Gulf and bring up your People from the Coasts of the Gulf.
Withdraw up the Missip even many days journey and make no more villages in
that direction. This will preserve you and your people long enough to hide up
your records that the Gentiles find them not.
21. Behold, the Lord will, in His own due time, call up Prophets here and there
among them, and He will reveal much to them, as you already know. But behold,
of your record, He will not reveal it unto them, only unto the Remnant will he
reveal your doings. And, even though the Remnant shall have much of the
Gentile in them, for they shall come out of the Dispensation of the Fullness of the
Gentiles, yet shall they also carry in them the blood of their ancestors who were
Nemenhah in this land. This is the Remnant of the House of Lehi which shall be
left in the land, and the Lord shall restore the land through them. Yea, the Earth
shall be blessed because of the Remnant.
22. But unto the Gentile, he shall show only the record of a fallen people, yea,
of my fallen people. Of these the Gentiles shall be taught for an ensample unto
them. And the Gentile shall puff himself up because he has learned of an ancient
948people, but he shall not turn from his lust and the Earth shall be consumed before
him. Yea, a little restoration, and a glimpse of Zion, shall the Lord give unto the
Gentile in this land. But they shall sin even against that little bit, and the
Peacemaker shall give his bishopric unto another. Yea, unto Lehi‟s seed shall it
be given once again.
23. But behold, you and your people shall enjoy one last season of joy, and you
shall walk the path upon which you have placed your feet without fear. But ere
long, a path filled with tears shall be the legacy of your near descendents, and
barely shall there be any left to pass on the story of it. Nevertheless, the Lord
shall preserve all that is Sacred, and He will visit they who remember Him.
Behold, out of such suffering through which He alone is powerful to save, shall
rise up a nation fair beyond all nations. Then, out of much travail and suffering,
shall the Dispensation of the Fullness of Times be ushered in.
24. Now, when Timothy had finished this short speech, he made an end of
speaking and sat in silence. And I perceived in him a great burden and a sadness
which it seemed he could hardly bear. And, before the sun rose upon the
following day, Timothy went his way and was not seen among the People.
25. And the words of his counsel were spoken in all the Council Lodges of the
Nemenhah of Pegnlitl, and we did as he instructed. Yea, we called upon all our
people to withdraw many days up the Missip and we ceased to make villages
down further into the south. And we made copies of all the records and we hid
them up in diverse places, against the day when the Peacemaker would deliver
them into the hands of our descendents for His good purposes.
And we know not how long we shall extend our habitation here in the home
of our fathers, but we shall stay as long as the Peacemaker has need of us here.
For behold, the records of our people have all been hid up against the day when
the Gentiles shall dishonor the blessing and the cursing that is laid upon this land.
Yea, when they shall sin against that which has been promised, the great nations
which they shall have built up unto themselves shall falter, and many shall fall
completely. In that day shall the records of the Nemenhah be of great value unto
that people upon who the Lord shall lay the work of healing and of restoration.
And it is a great comfort to us that He shall separate from out of all the earth
a Remnant which shall be Nemenhah. Yea, and the blood of Lehi shall flow in
many of them. Yet shall there also be many among them who shall share with
them a great blessing, for the Remnant of Lehi shall take them up as a fatherless
12. But the Peacemaker shall bring up out of the fallow Earth a tender shoot.
Yea, the land shall be fallowed, that it might rest and be healed. But the Lord
shall not multiply the fallow days. Nay, ere the Gentiles are full aware of their
failure, the Peacemaker shall have already prepared the seeds of restoration. And
He shall raise up from the midst of the ruiners, yea, even from out of the waste
places of the Gentiles, a Remnant out of the House of Lehi, and they shall
exercise the will of the Peacemaker upon the land, that it be healed.
13. Now, be not confused neither be gainsaid. This same Remnant of Lehi shall
be a mixed people with the blood of many nations flowing in them. It is because
of this that I said that the Gentiles shall become a desolating scourge upon even
our bodies. Nevertheless, that portion of the blood of our fathers which shall
flow through their veins, after that the time of the Gentiles shall have been
fulfilled, shall excite in their children a remembrance of things long forgotten,
yea, and a yearning for things long abandoned.
14. Memories shall take shelter in them and principles shall grow up in them, of
things they never knew. They shall bring in again a time of healing. They shall
surely beat their swords into plows and their spears into pruning hooks. The
Gentiles shall burn in their lust and devour each other, but their evil shall pass by
the Remnant, or rather, the Remnant shall not take it up. They shall call
themselves Nemenhah once again and shall establish themselves in their Lodges
and in their Communities, in all the places wherein we have dwelt since Hagoth
of Old did begin this, our long journey.
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
1009times 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
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
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:
101036. 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
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
1011name. 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
101246. 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
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.
22. Nevertheless, we do yet walk upon the WAY and have some revelation,
yea, and the gifts of the Spirit do yet manifest among us. Wherefore, we hold out
hope that the Peacemaker shall finish His work which He has commenced
regarding the Gentile in this land. And when He has fulfilled His purpose in
them, we know that He will restore the Remnant of the Nemenhah to a place of
honor, for He it is who has declared it unto us. Toward this end do we labor.
39. He has taught us about his people, even as Eapalekthiloom requested of
him, and I am satisfied with his answer. He has given us a good picture of the
customs and the beliefs of his people. He has indicated that the one sure
Covenant that is dictated is that the Creator is recognized as the possessor of the
creation, and that we are stewards of His possessions. He has satisfied us that the
Nemenhah of the Mountains understand this principle enough to have all things
in common, because of the fact that the Creator blesses us all equally with the
gifts of creation. His people are stewards of the Earth and they are Healers. This
is Nemenhah. They covenant one with another, and with God, to consecrate their
walk and their talk, and because of it, there are no poor among them. In all these
things, the Nemenhah of the Mountains seem just like us, and this gives me cause
to rejoice in my heart. I am convinced that the Lord is preserving some few of us
in diverse places so that in the fullness of times, when He has finished His work
with the Gentiles, there will yet be a remnant with which He will build up the
Nemenhah again in this land.
32. Our descendents will read of our works and wonder in their hearts how it
was that we could even hope to maintain the ways and customs of our fathers in
the face of the great challenges which have affronted us, which do now assail us
on every side, and which will not cease to litter our path with obstacles until the
Peacemaker comes. Yea, they will read of our deliberations with wonder.
33. But it is our duty to labor so in their behalf. Behold, we know that this land
will be given up to the Gentile, for it has been foretold to us by the Peacemaker
Himself. Notwithstanding, we also know that He will raise up from out of the
Earth a Remnant unto which He will deliver again the foundation. This Remnant
we are told will be our own descendent, and those from among the repentant
Gentiles whom our descendents may choose to accept into the fellowship and the
covenant of our Lord. These same shall be the True Sons of Levi and of Lehi,
and also all they whom the Peacemaker grafts into the vine.
48. But do not despair, Nemenhah! For I have also seen that the Peacemaker
shall continue to whisper into the hearts of a few, and they will dream dreams and
see visions which they do not understand. Nevertheless, there shall be that in the
visions which will cause them to hold true to the fundamental principles upon
which our foundation is built. Yea, there shall be preserved in a religion to which
the Gentile will be very hostile, that which will remind the Remnant of our
doings. It will awaken the Remnant in the moment that the Gentile is ripe for
49. For behold, the way of the Gentile is gain. And to get gain, the Gentile
shall use up the Earth and all the abundance that She has to offer. And there shall
be a great consumption that will threaten the very existence of the Gentile in all
the lands he has conquered. Yea, he shall be consumed even as he has consumed.
Even as he has sown, so shall he reap.
50. Behold, I have seen how that he will take from the Earth and give nothing
in return. And even I have witnessed how he will dig up the Earth in many
places, taking that which is precious of it to scatter again upon ground that is all
used up and has not been allowed to regenerate. And all that he shall scatter upon
the Earth shall hasten the desolation that shall befall him.
51. Behold, this is the faculty and the folly of the Gentile. His policy shall
always be to get gain, but the getting of gain shall never restore anything.
Wherefore, there shall come an end to any gain at all. Then shall he stand in the
lot which he has created, and mourn. In that day shall the Gentiles collapse, just
as we have seen the people collapse who entered onto the same path heretofore.
52. Yea, and I have been promised that we shall be given a great blessing, we
who live in these days, who have been blessed with visions of the future. Behold,
the Peacemaker shall allow us to be the voices whispering into the dreams and the
visions of our descendents in the last days. Now, is this not a great blessing?
Have we not reason to rejoice in our day?
53. I will tell you what whisperings I shall put into the heart and the mind of my
descendents. Behold, I shall show them how all that which is built up by the
Gentile shall be swallowed up. Yea, I shall show them how the Earth in Her
wisdom shall cause the consumption to end.
54. Then shall all that was built up by the Gentile be covered up again by the
Earth and all will become fallow ground. Yea, I shall show them the things
which have been foretold concerning them, that they despair not. They shall see
in dream and vision the renewing of the Earth and the re-establishing of the
foundation. Yea, they shall see the return into the hearts and hands of men that
way which takes from the Earth of Her abundance in gratitude, but also returns to
Her with surplus, that She might be replenished.
103655. The ways of our fathers shall not be forgotten, but there shall be a
refreshing for a time. Then, because the Lord will allow us to impart unto our
descendents of our own memories, there shall be a restoration of all things.
Wherefore, rejoice Nemenhah! Evil shall be the future, and we must be
reconciled with the destruction and desolation of our people and our country.
Nevertheless, the Lord is good, and He remembers His children in their
extremity. We shall be restored in the last day, and the Earth with us!
56. And we know, for it has been foretold unto us by the prophets of our
forefather, by our own prophets and also by the Peacemaker Himself, that He will
not leave the Earth disconsolate. Nay, but He will restore not only Her substance,
but He will also raise up out of our loins not only prophets to teach the people,
but a generation who will put right the woeful mistakes which shall have been
made concerning the stewardship.
57. Wherefore, I will be of good cheer. I will work in that stewardship unto
which I have been called and I will not be weighted down in concerns about
which I may make no meaningful change. Let us stand in our lot and be diligent
in that duty which the Lord has given unto us, and leave for the future that
correction which He will be mighty to make. In our time, let us diligently follow
His commandments to us, and to record our doing, that we might be an ensample
unto our descendents. For surely, they will be in great need of such ensample.
But we continue in this land for a good purpose in the Lord. For we know
that a time shall shortly come when our descendents shall once again inhabit this
place to re-establish the foundation. And we know that, although the nations may
rise against them and the Gentile may shake his heel, nevertheless, the
Peacemaker shall be with them and they shall be successful.
Yea, Nemenhah shall once again join together in the Covenant and they
shall shun the world and put away avarice. Men shall no more seek only to get
gain and they shall cease to hurt the Earth. In those days, behold, it has been
revealed to us, men and women who have a particle of Nemenhah in their veins
shall return to the purpose of their ancestors. Yea, they shall seek again a better
way. They shall set down the war that is in their hearts and take up a way of
And we know that, because we have seen their day, the things that we write
may be of worth to them when the Peacemaker shall call them up again to redeem
the land which shall have been taken from them. Yea, they shall be called to
redeem the land, which shall have been bathed in blood.
24. And we know also that the Lord has promised to restore the Nemenhah to
this beautiful land. Yea, and He has promised to restore His Remnant in all the
lands out of which they have been, and shall be driven. That we are laying a firm
foundation for them also gives us a reason to work diligently in all that the Lord
has called upon us to do. The Nemenhah have always been a people of purpose.
Ours is a purpose for the future.
25. Wherefore, we labor to regulate our affairs and to record our doings, that
our description of them might be the more easily translated and understood. For
behold, we also know, and have foreseen, that our language will no longer be
spoken by any of the remnants of the Nemenhah left in the land. So sundered
shall be the languages in the time that this record shall come into the hands of
they unto whom the Lord shall deliver them, that the translation of them must be
made almost entirely upon the Way.
14. But I am the Alpha and the Omega, for all thing lay before me, and I know
the beginning from the end, and I declare unto you, my friends, that the time
comes when even the more part of the Nemenhah shall have forgotten my ways.
Nevertheless, for your sakes, and because there shall be yet a few who will hold
in remembrance that blessing which I gave unto their fathers, they shall not fall
completely into apostasy. Yea, they shall not fall completely away, and I shall
visit them in visions and in dreams, and their prophets shall hear my voice.
15. For I have caused the hearts of men to move within them, and the are driven
upon the face of the earth. And to fulfill my purposes, I have called upon the
Gentiles and they cannot resist. Yea, and they come into the land even now, to
possess it. And they shall be your masters for a season.
16. But when they have accomplished the work whereunto I shall call them,
behold, they too shall forget me, yea, and many shall turn their backs upon me
and shake their heel at me. Many shall deny my hand in their restoration in the
land and they shall esteem themselves the masters and the lords of all the earth.
Such is the pride of the Gentiles.
17. But ere the end of time comes, behold, these little kings and queens shall
turn their faces even unto the remnants of the Nemenehah, and they shall esteem
great good in them and in their foundations. Then shall the Kings and the Queens
eat the dust of your feet. They shall put upon themselves your shoes and your
1071garments, build unto themselves houses after the fashion of your ancestors, yea,
they shall adopt unto themselves your ways and many of your customs. These
same shall become your nursing mothers and your nursing fathers. Whereas,
once in their great pride they did put themselves upon all the peoples of the earth,
as their master and teacher, behold, ere long they shall look to you for the
opening of the eyes and the unstopping of their ears.
18. Behold, they shall not be like unto you, neither shall they think as you think.
Their walk and their talk shall be different. Think not that you can ever
understand them, for in the moment that you do, behold, you have lost the
foundation and you have become one with them. This shall indeed by the plight
of the more part of the Children of Lehi left in the land in that time of which I
speak, and behold, the time comes speedily. But there shall be some few who
continue in the ways of their fathers, despite the persecutions of the Gentiles.
101. Now, Enoch wrote only that which I commanded him, as did the Brother of
Jared. Many things did they ask and nothing could be withheld so great was their
faith. Be it so with thee also, Ougou, for the Church of the Nemenhah is my Inner
Church. But thy writings will come unto their descendents in the end times
according to the promise I made to thy Fathers. Yea, and through thy descendents
I shall redeem all Israel.
102. But the Gentiles shall rule until that time comes and they shall not have the
faith of the Nemenhah. And thy descendents shall languish for a season in bitter
slavery. Their masters I shall make strong and through them I shall make a
preparatory restoration, and the writings of the Nephites shall be principle in that
work. Behold, if they prove worthy, I shall seal them unto my house and they
shall have part in the blessing of thy descendents. But if they do not make my
paths strait, I shall make use of their exceedingly great energy to spread my
52preparatory work. Then shall I seal from among them some few who will come
and give over the kingdom and this fair land unto your descendents.
103. Wherefore, write only that which I command thee, Ougou. Unto whom
these words shall come, I shall reveal even what I have revealed to the Nemenhah
and even I will show him to you on the Way. Yea, thou shalt teach him with thine
own mouth. Therefore, thou shalt have no need of writing the mysteries.
122. But my people must be gathered from out of all the world and I will use the
Gentiles to accomplish this gathering. Wherefore, a time shall come when your
descendents shall be isolated amidst a sea of unbelief. And because there shall be
no diversity of the seeds, the Nemenhah of Mentinah shall dwindle and the
Valley of Menintah shall fall into the hands of a plundering nation and many
precious things shall be lost. Then the land will fall into the hands of a remnant of
your posterity again and they shall keep the sacred mountain.
123. But, behold I say unto you, It is my will that the Gentiles come into the land
to possess it, for through them I shall gather in my sheep from the four quarters of
the earth. Yea, I shall bring the Gentiles into this sacred land and I shall establish
my covenant among them. Wherefore, if they keep my statutes, I shall graft them
into the vineyard and they shall bear much fruit and be the cause of much
124. But behold, they shall also corrupt my doctrine. For the Gentiles are zealous
in the getting of gain. And this thing always brings grief to the people who
inhabit this land. In that day I shall cause the faithful to make a regulation of my
Church. And there shall be among the Gentiles one who shall be of noble birth,
yea, he shall spring out of the kings and queens of the earth; yea, and even he
shall descend out of the loins of mine own close kinsman; and he shall I raise up
among the Gentiles who shall rule the land; but he shall also spring out of the
loins of my servant, Ougou, and is of my covenant people, and unto Him will I
deliver the writings of the Nemenhah.
125. For though I shall establish my Church among the Gentiles, I shall redeem
my Zion through the remnant of my people. Yea, the Gentiles shall be industrious
in the last days and I shall use that industry to carry my gospel to all the nations.
And many of them will be true and faithful. These shall I graft into my true vine.
And they will assist the remnant in building the New Jerusalem.
55126. But the Gentiles shall set their hearts exceedingly upon the things of the
world and shall not be diligent in rooting out the Gadiantonhem from among
them. Wherefore, I shall use my remnant, even my weak remnant, to thrash all
nations together, and the Gentiles shall lose my approval and shall fall.
127. Wherefore, ye Nemenhah, the things that ye write I shall preserve for the
end of times when I shall restore my remnant. When, in my own due time, I shall
finish my work, yea, my strange work. Stand ye in holy places and be patient,
therefore, ye Nemenhah. For, the record of your doings shall I hold up as an
ensample for the redemption of the land and the establishment of Zion. And this
shall be a great stumbling block to the Gentiles and shall be vexatious to them.
For they shall have been established in my name for this purpose, and they shall
build a foundation. But the culmination of the ushering in of the fullness of times,
and the fullness of knowledge, and the fullness of wisdom, and a fullness of the
Spirit, shall be accomplished by the weak, not by the wise, and by the meek not
the mighty. Yea, it shall be by the slave, not by the master.
128. But stand ye in your holy places. Prepare ye every good thing. The wicked
shall do wickedly in every age, but for a time, there shall be peace and tranquility
in this land. But beware, for the adversary never sleepeth and would drag the
Nemenhah down into suffering. Yea, ye are blessed because of your diligence,
but your posterity shall dwindle, as all my remnant shall dwindle. Nevertheless, I
shall preserve my remnant unto the last day.
168. And my people who are a remnant of Jacob, even those of your posterity
that I shall preserve in the land, shall dwell among the Gentiles and the wicked.
Yea, they shall be surrounded by the wicked, as if among the beasts of the forest,
as a young lion among the flocks, who, when I shall command him, shall go
through and tread down and tear in pieces, and none can deliver. Their hand shall
be lifted up upon mine adversaries, and all the nations shall fall before them. Yea,
woe be unto the Gentiles except they repent. For it shall come to pass in the day I
establish my remnant, sayeth the Father, that I will cut off their horses out of the
midst of them and I will destroy their chariots. Their highways will no longer be
laden with spoil and I shall remove from them their commerce. I shall cut off
their cities from the land, and the hungry shall throw down the strongholds.
169. And I will cut off the wisdom of their wise ones and their witchcraft will I
expose to the eye. Their subtle lyings, their deceit, and their soothsayers shall I
undo. Their pride I will also cut off, for all their graven works shall be no help to
them and shall disappear from the midst of them. They shall no more worship the
works of their hands.
170. I will pluck up their meeting places and their Churches, and their sacrifices;
so shall I destroy their cities. For lyings, deceivings, envyings, strifes, priestcrafts
and whoredoms shall be done away. Wherefore, their cities shall be done away.
171. Yea, thus saith the Father unto the Gentiles. In that day, the day of
tribulation of the Gentiles, shall the work of my Father commence among the
nations and my Father shall prepare the Way for all the dispersed of all the
World. They shall come unto me and call on the Father in my name. Yea, then
62shall the work commence with the Father among all the Worlds, in preparing the
Way whereby all His people may be gathered home again to their place of
beginning. And they shall gather in from all creations, but not in multitudes, and
not driven or compelled. For I will go before them, saith the Father, and I, even
the Son shall be their rearward.
172. Then did Jesus ask us the desire of our hearts and we did with one accord
declare our willingness to serve Him all the days of our lives, and to flee unto
Him never more to depart from Him. And Jesus answered us, saying:
173. Blessed are ye because ye have desired this thing of me. Therefore, when ye
have reached the end of your years, ye shall come unto me in my kingdom, and
with me ye shall find rest. Behold your desire is good and will bring much fruit,
but there are three from among the twelve in the Land Southward who desired of
me that they should tarry until I come in my glory. They shall never taste of death
but shall be as my beloved Apostle, even my beloved John. Ye shall see them and
they shall minister unto you and to all the world. And when they come into the
Land of Mentinah ye shall know them because of my gospel which they shall
teach and because of the miracles that they perform in my name.
174. Now when He had said these things He began to expound unto us all that
He had taught our kindred people in the Land Southward. Yea, He did open the
scriptures unto us and taught us what we were to preach. And He showed unto us
in vision the doings of the Gentiles whom He would prosper and bring into the
land. And behold, we saw that they carried with them a book which contained the
gospel, but it was far sundered from its own original and had been much changed.
175. And behold, He showed unto us another book together with the first in the
hands of a prophet. And it came to pass that this prophet did cause much
restoration to come to pass in the gathering and uniting of the Gentiles. But
behold, the other book was about the people of this promised land and it
reminded the Gentiles of the remnant of our posterity. And we saw that this little
book was great in spirit and was powerful in convincing the Gentiles to come
unto Christ. Yea, behold we did rejoice exceedingly to know that the book did
testify of our kindred.
176. Then behold, we saw the Gentiles organize and regulate the Church once
again in this land and their work did grow and prosper exceedingly. But they did
also grow and prosper in the things of the world. Yea, they did become
exceedingly rich and the more part of them did become puffed up with pride,
which thing was exceedingly heavy and difficult for the humble and righteous
among them to bear.
177. And behold, the Lord declared unto us that the coming forth of the book had
a two-fold purpose: that our people would begin to be gathered into their
63inheritance because of the book, and also the book will be a herald unto all the
world of the approaching culmination of His work upon this planet and in the
whole World. And our minds and hearts were comforted and we were again filled
with the Holy Ghost.
178. And while He was yet with us He began to speak, saying:
179. Behold, ye are my faithful flock and I shall reveal unto you the very secrets
of the Creation. And I shall endow you with power in order that you might do a
great work here in the lands of the Nemenhah. For, I would that all people hear
my gospel, wherefore, I must give you power and the Holy Ghost that my
purposes shall be fulfilled.
180. For ye have seen that I shall raise up a prophet unto the Gentiles and
because of him I shall gather in my children from out of all the four quarters of
the world. But his work shall be an initiation of the restoration not a culmination.
Yea, he shall begin to lay the foundation of a great work and mine elect shall
begin to gather out of all of the nations of the Earth. And many will move even to
this holy land and they shall prosper. Yea, even I shall prosper them exceedingly
and try them.
181. And they shall begin to keep many of my statutes, but they shall change
some and forget others. Yea, I shall bring forth the stick of Joseph from among
them and they shall deliver it unto all the world. In this they shall be blessed and
shall be added unto the children of the covenant. Yea, peace I shall bring them at
the end of the travail and I will prosper them, and try them.
182. But they shall utterly fail in gathering in the remnant of your posterity. I say
as a people they shall forget my commandment with regard to your posterity and
shall even participate in the enslavement and destruction of your posterity and of
the posterity of your kindred in the Land Southward.
183. Wherefore, from among them I shall raise up prophets who shall cry even
against them and they shall cast them out and persecute them. But out of their
loins shall spring blood mixed with your own, a prophet and seer, and he shall
bring to light the writings of the Nemenhah. Behold, he shall receive of that great
Gentile prophet, of whom I have spoken, and shall be gathered in from out of the
loins of the Kings and Queens of the Earth. And he shall forsake the world even
to his hurt and shall prove the more faithful because of tribulation.
184. Unto this prophet shall I reveal the writings of your fathers, and even of
your posterity that he may also write it. And I shall command him that he shall
bring the book, even your writings, to light and shall show it unto your posterity.
Behold, I declare unto you that your posterity shall come unto me and they shall
64rise up when I shall subdue the nations in my name, and they shall be a
delightsome people and shall bring again my Zion.
185. And behold, so that this record shall testify of him, I shall reveal unto you
somewhat about him, that your seed may read these words and know my servant.
186. He shall be raised up unto the world, yea, the Gentile world. Yet shall he
learn of me and, forsaking his own heritage, covenant unto me. Then shall he
declare also his other heritage, even that of a people enslaved. And his name shall
be a vision and it shall treat upon every quarter of the Earth and shall show forth
great wisdom. Yea, and his name shall rise up on heavenly wings and I shall visit
him and he shall see what was, and what is, and what will be. Yea, thus shall he
see a very far off and this shall be a great advantage unto him when I subdue the
187. Therefore, my children, teach your posterity to watch for this prophet, for
his name shall be like that great chief of his estranged people, yea, even the name
of his fathers before him. Wherefore, watch for him. But this is not all, for his
work shall move the nations out of their place and in every city wherein he
moveth, Zion shall be established.
188. But the Gentiles will rule the land for a season and prosper and through
them also will I do a great work. Yea, I will begin to teach them and through
them shall much be restored and I shall establish them according to my purposes.
Wherefore, your descendents will dwindle in unbelief and shall be subdued by
the Gentiles. And this is wisdom in me for your posterity shall be oppressed and
189. Yea, for many years they shall be as if asleep, as a lion laying in wait for the
prey. And when in my own due time I shall deliver them the prey, then shall they
spring forth. Yea, they shall sleep no more but shall shake off their long nurtured
disguise and, putting on their beautiful garment, they shall arise amidst the
nations. But were it not for their long captivity, they would not eagerly desire a
greater portion. Wherefore, I will test your posterity with a sore testing. And after
that they have been thus tried and tested, I shall take them unto my own work and
with them I shall thrash the nations.
190. For when a man planteth corn he first prepareth the ground. Yea, he doth till
it and he moundeth it up and dungeth it. And after he hath prepared the earth, he
planteth the seed; and behold, it groweth and bringeth forth the ear. And before
the harvest, he draweth back the husk and he testeth the kernels and counteth
191. Then, in due season, he plucketh the ripe ears and bringeth them into the
storehouse. Yea, he doth not leave them for the birds or the robbers, but bringeth
65in the ears to be shaken out. And when he hath shaken out the corn he layeth it
out to dry in the sun, or he placeth it near unto the fire, that the water thereof be
dried. But the ears he shaketh not again but delivereth them up to be eaten by the
poor, for the kernels left thereon are not good for planting again. Then, when the
drying is done, the corn is brought into the granary and the harvest is over.
192. Even so is the work of a man and should my work be any different? For I do
prepare and I do plant. And when the ear doth grow I test it. Yea, I do try it and in
due season, even in my due time I shall make my harvest. And in due order shall
all the ears be shaken and done. This shall be the work of your descendents. For
even as the man doth call in his laborers and his bond servants to pull the husks
and shake the ears; yea, and even he doth call in his women to spread the corn
and stir it. Even so shall I fulfill my work, even my strange work.
193. Therefore, be diligent. Yea, be faithful. Fulfill all my commandments and
make strait my ways. And write your doings unto your descendents and hide
them up. Yea, do ye this secret work unto futurity, for I will bring forth your
works in the day that I do cleanse mine house.
