They Seek Deep to Hide Their Counsels from the Lord

 Previously: Is Zion a "Sustainable Society"?

Moroni, son of Mormon, was a solitary man for what we can assume was a long time. After his father died, he remained alone to write the sad tale of the destruction of his people. He must've had a lot of time to ponder and reflect, especially since he had received the Second Comforter and been in the presence of Christ. 

Before he sealed up the plates he left us with some powerful sermons, and since he had no one to preach to we know that they were written for us. Like his father, he also saw our day, and he knew what kind of deception we would be facing. I do not think it coincidence that one of the last chapters of the Book of Mormon is Moroni 7; the key for discerning the difference between good and evil. 

Jesus told his followers that in the last days that "false Christs, and false prophets... shall show great signs and great wonders, insomuch, that, if possible, they shall deceive the very elect..." I'm convinced that Moroni wrote his sermon on discernment with this very thing in mind. There is only one way to avoid deception, and that is to take the Holy Spirit as your guide. The alternative is relying on the words and works of men, which is a recipe for spiritual disaster and ultimately, deception. The false priests, prophets, and anti-Christs who will come will be so convincing that it will be almost impossible not to believe them. Their words will sound so pleasing, will make you feel so good, will be so flattering and logical, that only the meek, humble, and lowly in heart will be able to withstand them. But as Nephi said, even the humble followers of Christ do err in many instances, because of the precepts of men

The deceivers will come from all levels of society, they won't just be the obvious ones: the leaders of world religions with ties to globalists and secret combinations (although those are the ones I'll be writing about in this post). Many of them will come from the margins of society, where all true prophets come from. They won't be trying to make money and they will seem sincere. In fact, some of them may actually be sincere, but are deceived by false spirits who flatter them into believing they are someone important. Remember, God is no respecter of persons and all men are on equal grounds. The point is, there will NEVER be a man that you can put your trust in; you have to learn to put your trust in Christ, your complete and total trust, like a child who trusts his parents. Be skeptical of any man who preaches anything, especially those who point to themselves. 

Moroni begins his sermon will the following adage:

For I remember the word of God which saith by their works ye shall know them; for if their works be good, then they are good also

 And then he tells you how to determine what "good" works are and "who" they are done by:

Wherefore, a man being evil cannot do that which is good; neither will he give a good gift. For behold, a bitter fountain cannot bring forth good water; neither can a good fountain bring forth bitter water; wherefore, a man being a servant of the devil cannot follow Christ; and if he follow Christ he cannot be a servant of the devil

Wherefore, all things which are good cometh of God; and that which is evil cometh of the devil; for the devil is an enemy unto God, and fighteth against him continually, and inviteth and enticeth to sin, and to do that which is evil continually. But behold, that which is of God inviteth and enticeth to do good continually; wherefore, every thing which inviteth and enticeth to do good, and to love God, and to serv him, is inspired of God. (Moroni 7:10-13, Emphasis added) 

Much of what the devil "invites and entices" us to do, or to believe in, seems really good. In my last post I wrote about the occult origins of the United Nations, which on the outside seems like a "good" organization with noble goals for the betterment of mankind. Without studying the history, the symbols, and the Marxist leanings of those who created it, it's difficult to discover that the UN is front organization for totalitarianism. The point is, figuring out the difference between the good and bad guys takes study and effort, and the Book of Mormon is the handbook that shows you the way. 

No matter what a person says, what church he belongs to, what charities he donates to, or what lofty ideals he articulates for mankind, he is either a servant of Christ or the devil. There is no in between. You have to figure out if he belongs to the church of the Lamb or the church of the devil, and remember, these are spiritual entities. Physical entities subscribe to and become part of them, but they exist primarily in the spiritual world. Nephi tells us that those who belong to the church of the Lamb are very few in number, while those who belong to the devil's kingdom are numerous and build up churches to get gain and power over the flesh. The first clue he gives us is that any church that says, "Behold I, I am the Lord's," is a trademark of churches who are not built up unto the Lord. 

When I was a young missionary, I would read these chapters and snarkily think of the people I was teaching and how it was their churches that Nephi was talking about. I went to Wisconsin, where the few that were religious were extremely set in their ways. It never crossed my mind until about 8 years ago that Nephi was also talking about my church. Well, now I believe that he was speaking directly to the LDS Church, because, despite the obvious fact its members make up of the majority of people reading the Book of Mormon, it's now the wealthiest church in the world.  

The chapters in Nephi I’m referring to are 2 Nephi 26-30, and they are loaded with prophecy and condemnation. Nephi taught in a specific pattern, after he presents the words of Isaiah from the Brass Plates, with commentary from him and his brother Jacob, he unleashes a string of his own prophecies about the church and "churches" that those who will be reading his words will belong to. And then he finishes strong with the Doctrine of Christ in chapters 31 and 32. One thing to keep in mind here is that the phrase "many churches” doesn't necessarily mean different sects, and to "build up" churches doesn't necessarily imply different religions. Remember in the New Testament Paul addressed the "churches" of Macedonia and Galatia, yet we know they all originated from the Church of Christ set up by the apostles. Nephi could simply be addressing different wards and stakes as "churches," and to "build-up" churches could simply mean constructing physical buildings and adding physical membership to the mother church. 

I'm not saying that Nephi's prophecies do not apply to other religious sects whose "fine sanctuaries" and priestcraft laden leadership "grind upon the face of the poor." There is plenty of that going on in other religions, but for the most part those people and their pastors are NOT reading the Book of Mormon. So why would Nephi tell the Mormons what the "other guys" are doing without addressing the one church that could help the poor the most but doesn't? Besides the one-percent they donate to say they give something. The other ninety-nine percent (of $100 billion) could go far to help the struggling poor all throughout the Church membership and the world in general. See Rebekah Griffin's well-done video below to see just where all this money is going:

Let me get back to Nephi's pattern. After he lays out all the things we are doing wrong he offers us the chance to repent. And we know he is addressing the Latter-Day Saints because he uses the term Gentiles. As I pointed out in this piece I wrote a few weeks ago, when the Book of Mormon uses the word Gentile it is mostly addressing the LDS Church and other restoration branches, remember the book would come forth by way of the Gentiles. And here is Nephi's invitation to repent:
Wo be unto the Gentiles, saith the Lord of Hosts! For notwithstanding I shall lengthen out mine arm unto them from day to day, they will deny me; nevertheless, I will be merciful unto them, saith the Lord God, if they will repent and come unto me; for mine arm is lengthened out all the day long, saith the Lord God of Hosts. (2 Nephi 28:32)

Take note there is only one "wo" pronounced upon the Gentiles here (more on this later). After he extends this invitation he rolls right into more prophecy about the Gentiles saying thy have a Bible and don't need any more Bible. Well again, when I was a young missionary I assumed Nephi was talking about all those "other guys" I was trying to introduce the Book of Mormon to. It made sense, they were saying literally those same words to me, "we already have a Bible." It was uncanny to me, I figured Nephi had those people nailed. Again, I'm sure Nephi was partly addressing those people, but I missed the fact that he also addressing the Latter-Day Saints. How do I know? These verses right here:

But thus saith the Lord God: O fools, they shall have a Bible; and it shall proceed forth from the Jews, mine ancient covenant people. And what thank they the Jews for the Bible which they receive from them? Yea, what do the Gentiles mean? Do they remember the travails, and the labors, and the pains of the Jews, and their diligence unto me, in bringing forth salvation unto the Gentiles?

O ye Gentiles, have ye remembered the Jews, mine ancient covenant people? Nay; but ye have cursed them, and have hated them, and have not sought to recover them. But behold, I will return all these things upon your own heads; for I the Lord have not forgotten my people. (2 Nephi 29:4-5)

The Lord is calling us out in our treatment and cursing of the Jews. Think of all the slang and Jewish slurs some Americans use in their daily language? At least those of us who grew up in the more "red-neck" parts of Mormonville. If someone was tight with money we used to call them "Jewish." If someone was rich and took advantage of others we called them a "Jew." And how many conspiracy theorists think that the global cabal is made up of mostly Jews?  How about this one? When I was a kid people used to say that the Holocaust was a punishment for the Jews for killing Jesus. I mean that makes sense right? That God would punish their innocent ancestors two-thousand years later. The Lord is calling us a bunch of ignoramuses. Not only do we curse them, we don't realize all the trouble they went through in bringing forth the scriptures to us. Think of all the prophets that were killed, stoned, or driven out from among the Jewish people; many of them gave their lives so we could have their words of scripture. 

And now consider this line from verse 5, "ye... have not sought to recover them." Despite many branches of Mormonism having and distributing the Book of Mormon, little effort has been made to "recover" the Jews, God's "ancient covenant people." The LDS Church has an official presence in Israel at the BYU Jerusalem Center, but they made an agreement with the Israeli government decades ago not to proselyte. They are not even allowed to pass out Books of Mormon in Jerusalem, at book that ironically, was written to both "Jew and Gentile." 

But recently a project spearheaded by Adrian Larsen is attempting to change all that. There is now a version of the Book of Mormon that is catered specifically to the Jewish people. Because the Book of Mormon came by way of the Gentile, it is encumbered with Gentile language that is foreign to Jews, but ironically, the text is a record written by Jews for Jews. God speaks to people in their own language and understanding, and since the days of the Gentiles are coming to an end, he is now speaking directly to the Jews. The name of this version of the Nephite record is The Stick of Joseph in the Hand of Ephraim, and you can find a free pdf of it here. Also read this post on Adrian's blog for more information and to learn how this book fulfills prophecy both in the Old Testament and the Book of Mormon. According to Adrian, this effort of reaching the Jews marks the beginning of the Lord's promise that he would set his hand again the second time to recover his people, and to bring them to the knowledge of the true Messiah. 

Three Woes for the Elite

There are two places in the Book of Mormon where three "woes" are pronounced upon the wicked, once by Nephi and once by Jesus Christ. Nephi is speaking of those who are puffed up with pride:
O the wise, and the learned, and the rich, that are puffed up in the pride of their hearts, and all those who preach false doctrines, and all those who commit whoredoms, and pervert the right way of the Lord, wo, wo, wo be unto them, saith the Lord God Almighty, for they shall be thrust down to hell! (2 Nephi 28:15, Emphasis added)

A few paragraphs ago I quoted Nephi at the end of chapter 28 extending an invitation of repentance to the Gentiles. There was only one "wo" pronounced upon them. I think this is significant. I think he may be addressing two different groups of people here. Throughout the entire chapter Nephi is condemning certain actions and words that could only be committed and uttered by those in some position of power or authority. For example, hearken unto us, hear ye our precept, God has done his work, dig a pit for thy neighbor, false teachers who preach false doctrine, they rob the poor because of their fine sanctuaries, they rob the poor with their fine clothing, they engage in wickedness, abominations, and whoredoms, etc. Who do you think owns the "fine sanctuaries" like the temples and the Conference Center? It is certainly not the average member of the Church; technically, it is the Corporation Sole or the President of the Church. Who do you think Nephi is talking about?

Now for the clincher. Nephi repeats a phrase that Isaiah said in the previous chapter, and when something is repeated in scripture we might want to pay attention. He said there shall be many who "shall seek deep to hide their counsels from the Lord; and their works shall be in the dark." Who is he talking about? Isaiah offers another clue:

And wo unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord! And their works are in the dark; and they say: Who seeth us, and who knoweth us? And they also say: Surely, your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay. But behold, I will show unto them, saith the Lord of Hosts, that I know all their works. For shall the work say of him that made it, he made me not? Or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, he had no understanding? (2 Nephi 27:27)

Whoever these people are, they operate in the dark. They think no one knows what they are doing. The "potter's clay" analogy is an interesting one; it is a metaphor for God's creative power. He, the Great Potter, formed us out of clay, and Isaiah is saying that the clay thinks it has transcended its own Creator (this could be alluding to Luciferianism: ascension without a Savior). In other words, these men who "seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord," think they are able to keep secrets from and deceive God himself. Not only that, but they think they can deceive God's children as well. This line is very interesting: "surely, your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay." They turn things upside down by preaching a false gospel, and "esteeming" themselves as the chosen "clay" or vessels placed in authority over others. But God knows all their works, and will someday expose all their secrets upon the housetops. Now let's read what Nephi said in its full context:

Yea, and there shall be many which shall teach after this manner, false and vain and foolish doctrines, and shall be puffed up in their hearts, and shall seek deep to hide their counsels from the Lord; and their works shall be in the dark. And the blood of the saints shall cry from the ground against them. (2 Nephi 28:9-10, Emphasis added)

Nephi just gave us another big clue: whoever these people are, they are murderers, otherwise the blood of the saints would not cry from the ground against them.  Now we know he is not just addressing ordinary folks who attend a corporate church and are deceived by its leadership. He is talking about people in power who are using that power to murder for gain and are getting away with it. How do we know they are getting away with it? Whenever the scriptures use language that suggests the saints have been killed and their blood is crying from the ground, it is usually followed by vengeance. Their blood is crying for vengeance against their murderers. This is a cry for justice, suggesting that the murderers are not being punished for their crimes, and won't be until they die and face the judgment of God. 

Interestingly, this same language is used by Moroni and Christ in reference to secret combinations. This is another big clue as to who these people are who "seek deep to hide their counsels from the Lord." They are actively taking part in and building up secret combinations. This is different than common people merely believing in the socialistic works of secret combinations because they are deceived. No, these people are using resources and financial means to build them up, and are propagandizing their followers to believe in their works. Here are the words of Moroni, remember he is addressing those who have "polluted the holy church of God":

Why do ye adorn yourself with that which hath no life, and yet suffer the hungry, and the needy, and the naked, and the sick and the afflicted to pass by you, and notice them not? Yea, why do ye build up your secret combinations to get gain, and cause that widows should mourn before the Lord, and also orphans to mourn before the Lord, and also the blood of their fathers and their husbands to cry unto the Lord from the ground, for vengeance upon your heads? Behold, the sword of vengeance hangeth over you; and the time soon cometh that he avengeth the blood of the saints upon you, for he will not suffer their cries any longer. (Mormon 8:39-41, Emphasis added)

Now it's getting serious. Moroni, like Nephi, is also accusing those who have polluted the "holy church of God" of murder. He is declaring that they have blood on their hands. Why? Because they support the secret combinations who create war. War causes widows and orphans to mourn for the loss of their husbands and fathers. You can read this classic post from Pure Mormonism to find out how the Church supports the military and justifies killing for those members who serve in it. But I don't think this is what Moroni is talking about. I'm afraid this is more than just financial and rhetorical support for these secret combinations, I think what Moroni is saying is that the corporate Church has become part of them. Why? Because he says that they build up the secret combinations to get gain. If they were not part of these organizations, they would not be on the payroll. 

The Melbourne Man

I'm going to take a detour here and take you back to the year 1947, the setting is Melbourne, Australia. Get comfortable, relax, and get ready for a mind-bending trip into the upside down. This story is recorded in the D. Christian Markham's There are Save Two Churches Only, that I've referenced several times throughout this blog. This is the story of the "Melbourne Man," told by Marion Law who served a mission there and had this experience at the tender age of 21. Marion met a full-fledged member of the Great and Abominable Church of the Devil, and he told Marion everything, I mean he really spilled the beans, and the poor missionary barely escaped with his life. 

One day as Marion and his companion were doing their work, they decided to walk on opposite sides of the lane to talk to more people. Marion knocked on a door and a man answered, but before he could find his companion the man insisted that he come into the house. As he began to share the message of the plan of salvation the man interrupted with, "we have a better plan," so Marion asked what it was. 

He got both barrels. The man envisioned a utopia as Plato had, (Plato was a mystery school initiate and communist), which consisted of a society with "three classes of people: the leaders, the workers, and the teachers." The teachers would teach the workers how to be "sinless," free of hate, greed, envy, etc. The hapless workers would never be jealous of the leaders, who promised not to oppress them, and society would be "perfect." Breeders would be selected, defective babies eliminated, and a plan of eugenics implemented for population control. The goal was to create a "master race of geniuses."

Science would devote its energy to developing a bioengineered body that could live forever (transhumanism), and a space program to seek out other planets suitable for humans. The masses would be controlled through "diet, drugs, music, movies, education, etc." The diet would consist of bioengineered food that would leave people "submissive and easily controlled." This food would contain "additives and special formulas," as well as structurally changed plants and animals ( I can only assume he was predicting GMO food). He explained to Marion the science of drug addiction, and how it would be used to manipulate society. He also explained how music would be used to do same. This music was called "melodic dissonance," based upon a rhythm of 60-120 beats per minute, and was proven to work on dogs through experimentation. Some of the dogs died when the metronome would swing wildly between 60 and 120 bpm. Similar experiments with similar results were done on humans by the Russians. 

The Beatles, who were trained in Europe, spear-headed this movement in America and became an instant hit. Marion recalls that when he first heard "rock & roll," he instantly knew what it was and who created it. The man told him that they would use "behavior modification conditioning in government schools, using audio-visual programs," with permanent results. The people will be fooled into thinking that they can still choose, but the man insisted that, "they will always choose exactly what they are conditioned to choose." 

At this point some spiritual power seized Marion and he could not move, and he used his strength to ask who the man the was. He answered that he was "one of three members of the central planning committee of the communist party for Australia." He told him that the coming communism was more than just economic, political and military... it was "spiritual communism, that would evolve into a worldwide government." When the New World Order would finally take over, they would simply kill anyone who "cannot be conditioned to be either a worker or a teacher." When Marion asked how many they would kill the man said, "hundreds of millions, maybe even you and me." 

He went on about reducing the population to a "manageable size," and how only the "inner corps of the elite know about the plan." A plan that has never been recorded or written down, a "secret plan." When Marion asked him why he told him all of that, the man said that they were looking for zealous young men to join them in the effort... to "bring about this heaven on earth. Think about it, not one soul will be lost." Marion lashed out, "you'll never take over the world." The man responded that they already control 2/3 of the world's governments, and the United States was the "last major hurdle to world domination." Marion rebuffed, "you'll never take over the United States!"

The man retorted that they already controlled American "entertainment, industry, the news media, the education system, the courts, the financial system, political parties. Where they don't have full control, they have infiltrated and have embedded their agents into all important decision-making bodies." Marion blurted out, "you don't control the education system." The reply was curt, "examine any text book in any school, at any level, from preschool to university graduate school. You will find no mention of Jesus Christ or God or His plan. But you will find our plan being taught at every level. It’s written into every textbook."

When the Melbourne man asked Marion to join their forces the courageous young missionary boldly declared he would follow the plan of the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. The man became angry, and began shouting that "there no are no such beings!" Marion testified again, and the man attacked him with his fists, which freed him from the spiritual hold and allowed him to escape. He found his companion, who had been frantically searching for him, and they took the tram home. Marion slept for two days recovering from the spiritual attack. Twenty-five years later he told the whole story to President Benson in his office, who believed him, and told him that he had heard Satan's plan first hand. 

Now there is a more detailed account, and I want to share a little of it with you. And then you will know how it relates to this blog post. Marion said that the Melbourne man told him that there were three phases to the nature of man. His is first, "an economic animal," second, "a political animal," and third, "a spiritual animal." Hence, the conspirators must control the economy, the State, and the churches. The man told Marion the following chilling reality:

We control all the churches except The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He said, we have them in our control and he said that when we have political and economic control of the world, we will then be able to establish our total spiritual program. (Two Churches Only, pp. 289-297)

This was in... 1947. Do you think the LDS Church is in their control today? Moroni certainly thinks so. Not only are they in their control, but they have joined with them, and become partners of all their substance, and are using that substance to push UN Agenda 2030, global vaccination programs, and Ecumenism. Have any of you, dear readers, ever wondered where the term New World Order came from? Yes it comes from a Latin phrase that is on the Great Seal of the United States... Novus Ordo Seclorum. But again I ask, where does it really come from? I've stated on this blog several times that there is nothing new under the sun. Well, have you ever heard of the Old World Order? The old one-world government under Rome and the Vatican, that tortured and murdered the saints of God? That controlled education, the flow of information, literature, religion, government, etc. That executed people for believing in so-called heresy? 

Well my friends, the New World Order is the same program, run by the same mystery schools, centered in the same philosophy of Luciferianism. Only the places, names, and dates change. America is definitely the new Rome, but is the LDS Church the new Vatican? Only time will tell. And I can assure you, whatever the new world religion is, it will definitely not be Christianity. In the coming years, many Christians may face the same dilemma the ancient Nephites did: the prospect of being put to death for not denying the Christ. Even if you are awake it may be too late to stop this. The best we can do is take the Holy Spirit as our guide to avoid being deceived. 

Three "Woes" declared by Jesus 

Just after the Lord was resurrected he destroyed much of the Nephite civilization. When the dust cleared the survivors heard a voice in the midst of a "vapor of darkness," so thick that the people could "feel" it. The first thing Jesus said was "wo, wo, wo unto this people." Three woes, but for who? The second thing he said was, "wo unto the inhabitants of the whole earth except they repent..." Again, like Nephi, it seems as though Jesus is addressing two groups of people: those whom he just destroyed (three woes), and those who were spared (one wo). Then he tells the remaining few why he destroyed all of their cities. The main reasons are summed up in what happened to the city of Jacobugath: 
Jacobugath... have I caused to be burned with fire because of their sins and their wickedness, which was above all the wickedness of the whole earth, because of their secret murders and combinations; for it was they that did destroy the peace of my people and the government of the land... (3 Nephi 9:9)

After describing the fate and mode of destruction he used for five major cities, he ended each summary with variations of the following phrase:

That the blood of the prophets and the saints should not come up any more unto me against them. (3 Nephi 9:5)

Five times the Lord gives the same reason that justified him in destroying the people. They were murderers. And it sounds like they committed it collectively. Were the three woes for the shadow leaders of the secret combinations and the dupes who believed in their works and unwittingly assisted them in their murders? It certainly seems so. Mormon gives us another clue in the next chapter when he explains why the "more righteous" part of the people were spared:

And it was the more righteous part of the people who were saved, and it was they who received the prophets and stoned them not; and it was they who had not shed the blood of the saints, who were spared... (3 Nephi 10:12)

I strongly believe that the Lord is trying to teach us a pattern here, a pattern with a warning. The people who received the prophets and were spared were not yet spiritually saved. They were more righteous than those who were slain, but they still had not fully come unto Christ. Here is what Jesus said to them:

O all ye that are spared because ye were more righteous than they, will ye not now return unto me, and repent of your sins, and be converted, that I may heal you? Yea, verily I say unto you, if ye will come unto me ye shall have eternal life. Behold, mine arm of mercy is extended towards you, and whosoever will come, him will I receive; and blessed are those who come unto me. (3 Nephi 9:13-14)

Besides the fact that these people were not murderers, why else were they spared? Well, because they were among those who did not kill the prophets perhaps they were more awake cognitively. Maybe they realized their "awful situation" that was caused by the secret combinations who were destroying their laws and government. Maybe they understood that their liberties were being destroyed. Maybe they were the "conspiracy theorists" that everyone else made fun of and thought were crazy. Maybe they still had enough of the Holy Spirit to realize that things were not right and they needed to wait upon the Lord for deliverance. 

Luckily, these questions are not left up to total speculation; another Book of Mormon prophet has commented on this very subject: Nephi's brother Jacob. And I only stumbled onto this because my good friend pointed me to this blog post written a decade ago. Here is what Jacob said about a future time when the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the house of Israel:

And behold, according to the words of the prophet, the Messiah will set himself again the second time to recover them; wherefore, he will manifest himself unto them in power and great glory, unto the destruction of their enemies, when that day cometh when they shall believe in him; and none will he destroy that believe in him

And they that believe not in him shall be destroyed, both by fire, and by tempest, and by earthquakes, and by bloodsheds, and by pestilence, and by famine. And they shall know that the Lord is God, the Holy One of Israel. (2 Nephi 6:14-15, Emphasis added) 

Can you see how merciful the Lord is? All we have to do is believe in Him to avoid the coming destruction. But I think it is more than just saying you believe. It is acting on that belief by not subscribing to all the anti-Christian nonsense that is happening out there, much of it by those who feign Christianity. By being awake to your "awful situation" caused by the secret combination that is among us, which is now being built up by many powerful religions. By not trusting in the arm of flesh, and not believing the idle words of wolves in sheep's clothing, but believing the words of Christ, from prophets the world rejects. Do you notice how the destruction Jacob speaks of is almost exactly what happened to the Nephite civilization just before Christ came to visit them? This is a pattern and a type of things to come. The Lord always warns his people before they are destroyed; this is another truth taught in the Book of Mormon:

... and never hath any of them been destroyed save it were foretold them by the prophets of the Lord. (2 Nephi 25:9-10)

So as you can see, it's not all doom and gloom. There are many reasons to have hope. God is about to unearth his marvelous work and wonder and make kings shut their mouths. 

Counsels and Abominations

Now let's put this all together. What is the correlation between those whom Nephi gives three woes and those to whom Christ does? One word, abominations. Have you ever read a list of sins in scripture and wondered why God spells them all out like that? It's often things like, wickedness, iniquities, abominations, envyings, strifes, lasciviousness, whoredoms, etc. There are two common themes the word abomination or abominable is always associated with? Secret combinations and sexual sin. As bad as sexual sin is, we are told by Moroni that secret combinations are the "most abominable and wicked above all, in the sight of God." Nephi uses this word (abominations) a few verses after in describing those who "seek deep to hide their counsels from the Lord," and Jesus uses the words "wickedness and abominations" in describing those Nephite cities that were destroyed. I think we are onto something here. 

Now, what do counsels have to do with abominations? If you look up the etymology of the word counsel, you find that it derives from the Latin word consiliari or consilium, which means "plan, opinion," and "from the assimilated form of com," we get "with, together." So a counsel is made of people planning together with other people. A counselor, a person who counsels, is also a confidante, or someone who is entrusted with and keeps a secret. Do you see where this is going yet? Nephi and Isaiah are describing people who are planning secrets with others in the dark. They are talking about secret combinations. Nephi is telling us that churches will be involved in secret combinations, not just building them up, but actually being part of them. Otherwise, why would he say that there is blood crying from the ground against them?

But there is more. In Hebrew, the phrase seek deep is a metaphor to dig deep, or another way of describing people digging into the earth to hide things. In this case, to hide their counsels deep in the earth might mean that they are having their secret meetings underground. And it just so happens that Salt Lake City is littered with underground tunnels. It's no secret now that the there are tunnels under Temple Square that connect Church owned buildings and facilities, including the temple itself and the Church office building. You can read about that here. It makes sense right? Church leaders can freely move from building to building without fighting the hustle and bustle of traffic and facing the "shame" of walking among homeless people, but do the tunnels serve a more sinister purpose? Some tunnels are open to the public and temple patrons, and others are reserved only for Church leadership. And what about the Church vaults at Granite Mountain? What could they possibly be hiding down there? 

As you can see they hollowed out the inside of a granite mountain, I'm sure at quite a cost to tithe payers. This certainly fits the metaphor of digging deep in the earth to hide things. It's supposed to contain millions of genealogical records, but is that just a front? Could it hold historical artifacts about Joseph Smith that have never seen the light of day? Like definitive proof that Joseph wasn't a polygamist or Brigham’s complicity in his death? Or maybe it's filled with gold, silver and other treasure? The point is nobody knows, it's a secret, and the counsels that discuss what is inside must be held in the dark. The public is now offered a "virtual tour," but only the fifty-some employees are allowed inside, where they work storing, copying, and digitizing records. There could really be nothing but genealogical records in there, but can we trust a Church that is now lending its full support to the communist United Nations? 

Vaults and underground tunnels seem to be the pattern for powerful and wealthy churches. The Vatican holds some fifty miles of "shelving and documents dating back to the eighth century." This artifactual collection is known in Latin as the Archivum Secretum, and I bet it contains some juicy historical documents. Secretum in Latin doesn't really mean secret, it is more aptly translated private or personal. In addition to historical records, it holds the private letters and correspondence of Popes from the last four hundred years. Only accredited historians are given access to documents; no journalists or students are allowed inside. Historians may only request three documents per day for viewing, no photos are allowed, and everything is written in Latin or Italian. Finding anything good could take years, but some things have come to light during the last century. Like, for example, Pope Pius XII's (1922-39) deal with Mussolini to "protect the Church's interest in exchange for silence on state-sponsored anti-Semitism," or his predecessor, also Pope Pius XII's (1939-58) diplomacy with Germany and turning a blind-eye on the Holocaust. Other historical records the archive contains include the 1307 trial of the Knight's Templar (on a 197 foot-long scroll), the 1521 papal bull issued by Pope Leo X excommunicating Martin Luther, and letters to Pope Pius IX from both Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis during the Civil War.

One can't help but wonder what else lurks in the 50 miles of the Vatican's archives? Perhaps lost books of the Bible, records of ties to secret societies, links to the Italian Mafia, or financial records of deals with powerful corporations and international bankers? Or maybe this juicier stuff is held in some underground vault unbeknownst to the public? Just like Salt Lake, there are secret underground tunnels running all through the Vatican. There is one tunnel that stretches 2600 feet called the Passetto di Borgo, "small passage," linking the Vatican Palace to the Castel Sant'Angelo. And there are rumors of a massive 1500 mile tunnel under land and water that runs straight to Jerusalem, apparently filled with insane amounts of  gold. 

What else are they seeking deep to hide in the Vatican? The bottom line here is that if an organization needs to hide its history or conceal things in the earth we know it is not of God. Nephi told us how God operates:
For behold, my beloved brethren, I say unto you that the Lord God worketh not in darkness. (2 Nephi 26:23)

If a church has secret meetings or councils, or locked vaults closed to the public, or secret underground tunnels reserved for only its leaders, or access to unlimited amounts of tithing money with no accountability and no obligation to report to its members where the finances are going, it is NOT of God. God does not operate in the dark; God is transparent. In the verse before Nephi tells us exactly who does operate in the dark:

And there are also secret combinations, even as in times of old, according to the combinations of the devil, for he is the founder of all these things; yea, the founder of murder and works of darkness; yea, and he leadeth them by the neck with a flaxen cord, until he bindeth them with his strong cords forever. (2 Nephi 26:22, Emphasis added)

Notice that murder is frequently equated with secret combinations and works of darkness. It is their modus operandi, it's part of the gig. Nephi says the devil "is the founder of all these things." Here is another clue for our modern day. Look at the symbols that organizations use in their garb, their architecture, and their art. That is how these organizations reveal themselves. It is part of Satan's pride, he can't help but throw his logos on his works. In the video below, Christian lecturer Walter Veith guides you through two hours of symbolism found in the Vatican, in Hollywood, the UN, American government and corporations, and even the Statue of Liberty, nothing is as it seems. 

Most of the symbols Walter talks about come from the Vatican, it is oozing with the occult. But we shouldn't be surprised that the devil would infiltrate churches along with governments. Remember he said that in addition to tyrants, he would buy up "false priests who oppress." The best trick the devil ever played was convincing you that he doesn't exist at all, "I am no devil, for there is none." But, as the saying goes, the devil is in the details, and this is where you should look to find the truth. The LDS Church is no exception, since Russell Nelson has taken the reigns of the Corporation Sole, it has been steadily aligning itself with the Vatican. Even the new Church logo is a Masonic symbol, despite the fact that it portrays an image of Christ. I wrote about that here. Multiple Church leaders have referred to Pope Francis as "his holiness," and I don't think it coincidence that Nelson met with the Pope (in a meeting that was 33 minutes long by the way; where have we seen that number before?) in March of 2019, a year prior to Covid-19 and the rollout of draconian protocols, of which the LDS Church has been one of the biggest supporters. It makes one wonder what was really discussed in that 33 minute meeting.

I am going to share a document that a friend sent to me. It lays out exactly how the LDS Church has been building up and supporting the UN and its Agenda 2030. It is 34 pages long. Don't be intimidated by its length, study it carefully, these are important things to know. We have got to stop believing these imposters who pretend to be representatives of Christ. In reality they have nothing to do with Him.

The document reveals nothing that you can't find online, but it will save you months of searching things out on your own. And it’s great resource to show all the ways the Church has been "seeking deep to hide their counsels from the Lord." The Church has completely abandoned the U.S. Constitution, and only gives lip service to religious freedom. There is one quote from Elder Oaks in the document that should be bone-chilling for any who understand the real difference between the Bill of Rights and the UN's Universal Declaration of Rights. Many members of the Church believe that Oaks is a champion of religious freedom because of his lip service to it. In reality, nothing is further from the truth. Here is what this retired judge said:
As advocates of religious freedom, we must yield to the fact that in a nation with citizens of many different religions or disbeliefs, the government must sometimes limit the right of some to act upon their beliefs when it is necessary to protect the health, safety and welfare of all. (Source, Emphasis added)

Now compare this statement to the stipulations on religious freedom that are found in the United Nations International Covenant on Human Rights that was ratified by President Bush Sr. in 1992:

Freedom to manifest one's religion or beliefs may be subject only to such limitations as are prescribed by law and are necessary to protect public safety, order, health , or morals… (Source, Emphasis added) 

It's as if Oaks was reading from the same document. As you can see, the only religious freedom he supports is whatever the State approves. The Bill of Rights states, “Congress shall make no law”… period, meaning it’s unconditional. Why isn’t Oaks deferring to it? Surely as a lawyer he must be familiar with America’s founding documents and their original intent. Surely as a Mormon that has lived through the days of David O. McKay and Ezra Taft Benson he understands the difference between inalienable rights and those granted by the State.

Of course he knows the difference. He is manipulating words to deceive you. A tell-tale sign of a conspirator is someone who has no loyalty to his home country or the freedom of its people; someone willing to sell out their own countrymen for the “greater good” of whatever group they’ve sworn oaths to. Whatever new direction the Russellites are taking the corporate Church, it is away from liberty and toward globalism. 

Here is the document. Remember what Moroni said, "by their works ye shall know them."

The Church and the Gadiantons

Before I end I'm going to share some anecdotal evidence that the LDS Church has been infiltrated by Luciferians, just as the Melbourne man said they would be. This account comes from D. Christian Markham's second volume of There Are Save Two Churches Only, and it involves Thomas S. Monson, whom Markham identifies as a "Luciferian Infiltrator." Markham personally interviewed a woman named Gail Smith, who was in the same ward with Monson when he was a bishop. Before you dismiss her allegations out of hand, keep in mind that this is a first-hand eye-witness account, which holds up in court much better than second or third hand testimony. (Remember, the Church has built an entire pseudo history of Joseph Smith's polygamy on noncontemporaneous second-hand testimony; the only contemporary testimony we have are of Joseph and Hyrum condemning the practice.) This is Gail's testimony, there is no other proof to substantiate this; the only way to know the truth is by the power of the Holy Ghost, please pray for it as you read. Remember, sometimes to understand the things of God our minds must "contemplate the lowest considerations of the darkest abyss" to reveal "the hidden things of darkness":

In regards to Monson, I believe the testimony of Gail Smith. Her account has been circulated on the Internet somewhat, but I have spoken with her extensively, several times. When she was a young woman, Monson served as her bishop. She testified that at one time she rode in his car, and in a secluded area he pulled over and tried to sexually force himself on her. When she refused and fought back, he stated "Don't you know I'm going to be the prophet some day?" (I can safely assume this kind of 'prophecy' was not given to him by the Lord.) Gail got out of the vehicle and started walking away. Moments later, Monson pulled up along side her, apologized and begged her to get back into the car, promising not to do anything except drive her home. She eventually conceded, and he drove her home.

Gail told me this from her own mouth. I believe her. She is not the least bit vindictive; she is forgiving. However, the truth is the truth, and she knows that Monson needs to be exposed for who he is: a wolf/Luciferian infiltrator. (Two Churches Only, Volume II, p. 413) 

Postscript: Links

Any case anyone missed the link the document. Here it is again:


  1. "I am going to share a document that a friend sent to me. It lays out exactly how the LDS Church has been building up and supporting the UN and its Agenda 2030."

    Where is the link to the document? Is it the "The Church and the Gadiantons" link to Google Docs? If so, that item isn't publicly visible.


  2. Ok everyone, I made the google doc publicly shareable. It works now. I always forget do that.

  3. My awakening helped come about as a result of re-reading the BoM with the mindset that it was written to, for, and ABOUT the restored church. Needless to say, it took on a whole new meaning, especially after obtaining a second witness.

    Since then, I've focused on studying a reprint of the 1830 edition courtesy of Nephi's vision talking about plain and precious truths being taken from both the Bible and BoM. Thanks to later editions of the BoM, they changed the identity of God and the removal of the Lectures on Faith from the "Doctrine" portion of the D&C solidified the false doctrine that continues today.

  4. Another home run, Kendal! I always learn a LOT from reading your blog.

    It never occurred to me that the granite mountain hideout might contain a lot more than just geneological records, but it makes sense that many things are kept and hidden there just as the Vatican holds many secrets. Wouldn't surprise me if Church leaders are planning to use that mountain as their bug-out headquarters when it all comes down, similar to the massive underground caverns already prepared in the mountains of Kentucky and elsewhere for the political elite's last ditch survival hideout (

    One clarification I would make to your post: Although Adrian Larsen has been key in getting The Stick of Joseph in the Hand of Ephraim published, it should be noted that the translation itself was led by a Messianic Jew/Mormon convert who prefers to remain anonymous. It's available on Kindle for five bucks, and I would note that one of the most helpful parts is the ample appendix, which explains Hebrew idioms, figures of speech, and other manners of writing. It's further evidence that even though Joseph Smith translated the record into English, many of the sentence structures that seem awkward to us would have been perfectly normal to Hebrew readers. I was very grateful to have that insight included. This is the only version of the Book of Mormon I care to read anymore.

  5. Gail Smith was my friend. I had known her for 25 years. I introduced her to Christian Markham for inclusion of her testimony in his second book. She was telling the truth. She never wavered in her testimony of evil in high places although it severely impacted her life and her health to stand firm.Thankyou for quoting and referring readers to Christian Markham's important books. RIP Gail and Christian, friends indeed.

  6. The Book of Mormon and Doctrine & Covenants teach us that there is indeed evil in high places and to seek the Lord's help to judge righteously. False accusations abound, too.
    The first rule of secret combinations is secrecy. But the Lord knows who the evildoers are, the evildoers know who they are, and according to the Doctrine & Covenants we will all know who they were someday.
    In the meantime, we can follow Christ's example of honesty and charity and service no matter what other people do. Maybe some, in part due to our example, will like Alma (both Elder and Younger) repent before the Lord appears and they must face him in their sins. We can pray for that.
