Dallas, Dallas, Dallas, Dallas, Dallas and Dallas

There are some very interesting things happening in and around Dallas at this time. I believe they are warnings and are types of things that God will send down on us as His judgments are given.

This is all in the year of the Shemitah. This has to do with the rise and fall of nations.

First set was given in Fall of 2014.

Warning #1 Pestilence - The death of Thomas Eric Duncan
  1. Ebola
  2. Thomas Eric Duncan enters a Dallas hospital and announces on the Feast of Trumpets(New Year's Day on the Jewish calendar, Sept 24-25) that is sick and that he has traveled to Africa, in an Ebola zone. His initial entrance(announcement) is rejected.
  3. There was a story that he was put on kidney dialysis. I can't find the day. I'm suspicious that he started bleeding on the Yom Kippur(Atonement, Oct 3-4).
  4. He dies on the Feast of Tabernacles(Oct 8th). This is on the second blood red moon. He dies within 30 minutes of the moon coming out of eclipse.

Warning #2 Famine - Cows with the number '7' on the forehead.
  1. A cow with a perfect '7' on his head was born near Pittsburgh on September 20th and announced via the Associated Press on the Feast of Trumpets. The typographical perfection is quite amazing.
  2. A cow with a less than perfect '7' was born the Feast of Trumpets. This '7' is less perfect and diminutive relative to the other
  3. Jonathan Cahn interprets this as a warning of a coming famine. Please take the time to watch his analysis. I find his interpretation compelling. This video was uploaded to youtube on March 29th. I watched it a couple of weeks later. It just struck me that one of the purposes of this was to prepare me to see the continuing of the warnings that were about to be shown.

Second set was given in the week of Second Passover 2015.

Warning #3 Terror - Two ISIS terrorists attack Mohammed drawing contest
  1. On May 3rd 2015, two terrorists execute an attack at the "Draw the Prophet" contest. 
  2. ISIS claims responsibility.
  3. Both terrorists are killed after they injure a security guard in the leg.
Warning #4 Earthquakes - 4.0 Earthquake hits Venus Texas
  1. The earthquake struck on May 7th.
Warning #5 Tempests - Tornadoes touch down in North Texas
  1. About a third of the town of Van Texas was destroyed by a tornado with many injured.
  2. One person was killed in Cisco Texas by tornado on May 9th. 
Warning #6 Flooding  - Flooding in Dallas.
  1. There was widespread flooding in North Texas including the Dallas area.

When I first heard about the terrorist attack I thought it might be significant. I decided to look up what day May 3rd, 2015 was on the Jewish Calendar. I discovered it was Second Passover. I had never heard of Second Passover. It is a second chance for those that could not bring a Passover offering the first time for whatever reason and they were permitted to do it the following month. It was a second chance.

I've had the very strong impression that the Second Passover is related to the end times. There are two Passovers in the history of the world. The first one was with Moses and the second one is in the end times or NOW. The passover in the end times, I now believe will happen at the Second Passover. There appears to be some differences between the two. I have not yet studied them.

Passover lasts seven days. All of these in the second set of warnings were contained within seven days of Second Passover. There is significance to this. I do not know what it is.

Clearly, God is warning us. I believe these are types for the destruction that is coming. Are there more warnings or is this it? Will there be a seventh warning? How quickly will the destruction come.

 Helaman 12:3 And thus we see that except the Lord doth chasten his people with many afflictions, yea, except he doth visit them with death and with terror, and with famine and with all manner of pestilence, they will not remember him.

It is interesting the first three warnings are given in reverse order to this verse in Helaman.

The question now is what do I do? We're given the answer after the destruction before the Lord's coming to the Nephites.

Helaman 10:12 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—
 13 And they were spared and were not sunk and buried up in the earth; and they were not drowned in the depths of the sea; and they were not burned by fire, neither were they fallen upon and crushed to death; and they were not carried away in the whirlwind; neither were they overpowered by the vapor of smoke and of darkness.
 14 And now, whoso readeth, let him understand; he that hath the scriptures, let him search them, and see and behold if all these deaths and destructions by fire, and by smoke, and by tempests, and by whirlwinds, and by the opening of the earth to receive them, and all these things are not unto the fulfilling of the prophecies of many of the holy prophets.
 15 Behold, I say unto you, Yea, many have testified of these things at the coming of Christ, and were slain because they testified of these things.
Those that received the prophets and stoned them not were saved. Who are the prophets? This is the question. Choose correctly and you will be saved. Choose incorrectly and you will not be saved. It is easy to mistake false prophets as true prophets. False prophets will flatter you. They will tell you all is well. They will tell you that you are a chosen generation. They will not warn you of destruction, for they do not see the destruction coming. The Book of Mormon mentions destruction over 500 times. We are confronted with it right in the beginning, even the fourth verse. I recommend you read Adrian Larsen's series on prophets.


Why Dallas? I do not know. It is the fourth largest metropolitan area in the United States. It is in the heartland of the country. I believe it is a general warning to the country.

The Book of The Lamb of God

There is a lot to ponder in these verses. I believe we are going to receive this book in its fullness and purity. Verse 24 seems to hint that it will contain a gospel from each of the twelve apostles. How else would they bear record?
I believe 2 Nephi 29 tells us that when this happens, the majority of the church members will reject it.
And because my words shall hiss forth—many of the Gentiles shall say: A Bible! A Bible! We have got a Bible, and there cannot be any more Bible.
These are the direct words from the Lord Jesus Christ. Read the following verses. He isn't very happy about it.
 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.
 Thou fool, that shall say: A Bible, we have got a Bible, and we need no more Bible. Have ye obtained a Bible save it were by the Jews?
All I can say is OUCH!!!!!! Can you hear the lament in those words? I can. Can you feel the anguish of the Lord because of the rejection of these words amongst the gentiles? I can.
When these records come forth let's not reject them because it breaks with our traditions. Let's not reject them because it doesn't come from the first presidency. Let's not reject them because of the content, which may not be very flattering.

1 Nephi 13
 20 And it came to pass that I, Nephi, beheld that they did prosper in the land; and I beheld a book, and it was carried forth among them.
 21 And the angel said unto me: Knowest thou the meaning of the book?
 22 And I said unto him: I know not.
 23 And he said: Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew. And I, Nephi, beheld it; and he said unto me: The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel; and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many; nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles.
 24 And the angel of the Lord said unto me: Thou hast beheld that the book proceeded forth from the mouth of a Jew; and when it proceeded forth from the mouth of a Jew it contained the fulness of the gospel of the Lord, of whom the twelve apostles bear record; and they bear record according to the truth which is in the Lamb of God.
 25 Wherefore, these things go forth from the Jews in purity unto the Gentiles, according to the truth which is in God.
 26 And after they go forth by the hand of the twelve apostles of the Lamb, from the Jews unto the Gentiles, thou seest the formation of that great and abominable church, which is most abominable above all other churches; for behold, they have taken away from the gospel of the Lamb many parts which are plain and most precious; and also many covenants of the Lord have they taken away.
 27 And all this have they done that they might pervert the right ways of the Lord, that they might blind the eyes and harden the hearts of the children of men.
 28 Wherefore, thou seest that after the book hath gone forth through the hands of the great and abominable church, that there are many plain and precious things taken away from the book, which is the book of the Lamb of God.
 29 And after these plain and precious things were taken away it goeth forth unto all the nations of the Gentiles; and after it goeth forth unto all the nations of the Gentiles, yea, even across the many waters which thou hast seen with the Gentiles which have gone forth out of captivity, thou seest—because of the many plain and precious things which have been taken out of the book, which were plain unto the understanding of the children of men, according to the plainness which is in the Lamb of God—because of these things which are taken away out of the gospel of the Lamb, an exceedingly great many do stumble, yea, insomuch that Satan hath great power over them.
 30 Nevertheless, thou beholdest that the Gentiles who have gone forth out of captivity, and have been lifted up by the power of God above all other nations, upon the face of the land which is choice above all other lands, which is the land that the Lord God hath covenanted with thy father that his seed should have for the land of their inheritance; wherefore, thou seest that the Lord God will not suffer that the Gentiles will utterly destroy the mixture of thy seed, which are among thy brethren.
 31 Neither will he suffer that the Gentiles shall destroy the seed of thy brethren.
 32 Neither will the Lord God suffer that the Gentiles shall forever remain in that awful state of blindness, which thou beholdest they are in, because of the plain and most precious parts of the gospel of the Lamb which have been kept back by that abominable church, whose formation thou hast seen.
 33 Wherefore saith the Lamb of God: I will be merciful unto the Gentiles, unto the visiting of the remnant of the house of Israel in great judgment.
 34 And it came to pass that the angel of the Lord spake unto me, saying: Behold, saith the Lamb of God, after I have visited the remnant of the house of Israel—and this remnant of whom I speak is the seed of thy father—wherefore, after I have visited them in judgment, and smitten them by the hand of the Gentiles, and after the Gentiles do stumble exceedingly, because of the most plain and precious parts of the gospel of the Lamb which have been kept back by that abominable church, which is the mother of harlots, saith the Lamb—I will be merciful unto the Gentiles in that day, insomuch that I will bring forth unto them, in mine own power, much of my gospel, which shall be plain and precious, saith the Lamb.
 35 For, behold, saith the Lamb: I will manifest myself unto thy seed, that they shall write many things which I shall minister unto them, which shall be plain and precious; and after thy seed shall be destroyed, and dwindle in unbelief, and also the seed of thy brethren, behold, these things shall be hid up, to come forth unto the Gentiles, by the gift and power of the Lamb.
 36 And in them shall be written my gospel, saith the Lamb, and my rock and my salvation.
 37 And blessed are they who shall seek to bring forth my Zion at that day, for they shall have the gift and the power of the Holy Ghost; and if they endure unto the end they shall be lifted up at the last day, and shall be saved in the everlasting kingdomof the Lamb; and whoso shall publish peace, yea, tidings of great joy, how beautiful upon the mountains shall they be.
 38 And it came to pass that I beheld the remnant of the seed of my brethren, and also the book of the Lamb of God, which had proceeded forth from the mouth of the Jew, that it came forth from the Gentiles unto the remnant of the seed of my brethren.
 39 And after it had come forth unto them I beheld other books, which came forth by the power of the Lamb, from the Gentiles unto them, unto the convincing of the Gentiles and the remnant of the seed of my brethren, and also the Jews who were scattered upon all the face of the earth, that the records of the prophets and of the twelve apostles of the Lamb are true.
 40 And the angel spake unto me, saying: These last records, which thou hast seen among the Gentiles, shall establish the truth of the first, which are of the twelve apostles of the Lamb, and shall make known the plain and precious things which have been taken away from them; and shall make known to all kindreds, tongues, and people, that the Lamb of God is the Son of the Eternal Father, and the Savior of the world; and that all men must come unto him, or they cannot be saved.
 41 And they must come according to the words which shall be established by the mouth of the Lamb; and the words of the Lamb shall be made known in the records of thy seed, as well as in the records of the twelve apostles of the Lamb; wherefore they both shall be established in one; for there is one God and one Shepherd over all the earth.
 42 And the time cometh that he shall manifest himself unto all nations, both unto the Jews and also unto the Gentiles; and after he has manifested himself unto the Jews and also unto the Gentiles, then he shall manifest himself unto the Gentiles and also unto the Jews, and the last shall be first, and the first shall be last.

Hiding in Not So Plain Sight

Note 1/20/2015: This is purely an observation. I make no claims about its origin or validity, because I don't know the origin, probably my own biases. Any claims of "promptings" could be mistaken for my own thoughts. I am probably completely out to lunch. It could be a coincidence or just noise or a distorted lens. As a matter of fact, please tell me that I am out to lunch. I hope the Lord intended no symbolism here.

Is this a better comparison? Perhaps, I should have done my homework a little better?

Church Office Building.

World Trade Center Utah

Arial Temple Square and Surrounding

Arial Ground Zero

Hiding in Plain Sight

Note 1/20/2015: This is purely an observation. I make no claims about its origin or validity, because I don't know the origin, probably my own biases. Any claims of "promptings" could be mistaken. I am probably completely out to lunch. It could be a coincidence or just noise or a distorted lens. As a matter of fact, please tell me that I am out to lunch. I hope the Lord intended no symbolism here.

The Lord loves irony. There are symbols and signs all over the place. We just have to be able to see them.

I finished reading Jonathan Cahn's "Mystery of the Shemitah" about a week ago. It is a marvelous work. I cannot recommend it highly enough. This has caused me to really think about towers and their meaning.

The World Trade center was conceived of in a Shemitah year(1945), construction was started in a Shemitah year(1966), construction was completed in a Shemitah year(1973) and was shaken down in a Shemitah year(2001)

After reading Sean Isaac May's work on the Conference Center, I was prompted to look at the Church Office Building. I discovered some striking similarities to the World Trade Center. They were both completed in 1973(One site listed 1972, I could not find an exact date for the opening).

They also bear this striking resemblance in the facade.

Now I want you to look at the following four photos to see if you can see something that I believe has been hiding in plain sight.

Now look at the pictures for a while until you see it.

In case you weren't able to see it, let me give you a little help.

Now, I will let you draw your own conclusions. I hope this is just noise, and there is nothing to see here. Suffice it to say, I would not work in that building, especially near the day of nullification or in the wake of the Shemitah.

I intend to explore the similarities between ground zero and the church's temple square complex. I think there are things to be revealed in this labor. The church and the state are intertwined and I believe their futures are too. If this the case, then the Lord will have given us signs and probably hidden them in plain sight.

I have not put too much detail in this. I just wanted to get it out there for people to chew on.

Pleasing God.

This is a portion of a letter I will be giving to my bishop.

What I Used to Think
I used to think that my meeting attendance pleased God. I was wrong. I gain nothing from God if I suffer through a vain and insipid meeting. There is no inherent value in meeting attendance. The only value is the light and truth that is imparted and received in the meeting. If there is none of that, it has been a waste. Period. It is a true sign of how far we have fallen when this is our measuring stick for righteousness.

I used to think that my fine dress pleased God. I was wrong. Our fine dress effectively casts out the poor. I believe this offends the Lord, who identifies Himself as the poor. To whom do we think Mormon was referring when he takes aim at “fine and costly apparel”? Well, who reads the book? Surely Mormon saw who would be reading his words. When we dictate to young men that they have to wear black socks to pass the Sacrament, we truly have become as the Jews of old. When we rely on outward appearances, it truly is a sign that we have lost inner holiness. Surely, the Lord looketh upon the heart. If my heart is right with Him, I do not need to show it with fine dress and if it isn't, surely no amount of outward splendor would compensate for my inner ugliness.

I used to think that my busyness pleased God. I was wrong. I can gain more from God with sixty minutes of intense prayer, crying to the Lord, than I can gain from years of going from meeting to meeting from activity to activity. It is largely fruitless. I have spent about 1000 hours in Bishopric, PEC and Ward Council meetings. What a waste it largely was. Is some of this my fault, sure it was. I can think of any of the times I have cried out to Lord with my whole soul and each one of these is of more value than ALL of my busyness. God wants my heart. He has spoken to me in my mind and has asked for my heart. “I want your heart”. This is the sacrifice He wants. Surely, earning merit badges and participating in ward Hollywood squares is fruitless. It is all vain. Our cultural smog is so thick we can't see how immersed we are in the deception that it is. I gain so much more by slowing down, cutting out the activities, pondering, praying, meditating and pausing. I'll let the world pass by in its hyper rush to the end.

Bad Sign

Thomas Eric Duncan died on October 8th, 2014. He was the first victim of ebola on American soil.

There is some strong symbolism with his death that in my opinion doesn't foretell good things for the country.

  1. His case was known to the whole country. It was announced and followed on every news station.
  2. His death was the first. There have been others brought to this country and have survived. I believe this was significant.
  3. He enters a Dallas hospital on September 24th. If he was there at sunset, he would be there on Rosh Hashana(Feast of Trumpets - This is a call to repentance). This was the announcement of the arrival of ebola.
  4. This call to "repentance" was rejected. He was sent home. If he would have been admitted, they may have been able to save his life.
  5. He died on Sukkot(Feast of Tabernacles). He lost his tabernacle on Tabernacles. I do not say this flippantly. I prayed for him on the morning of the 8th. I had the thought at that time, that if he died, it would be a bad sign for the country.

I think this is a very bad sign for the country. I now expect ebola to sweep the country.

Let us repent. Let us cry to God for mercy.

The cutting off of the head and the tail

Isaiah 9 
 14 Therefore will the Lord cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush in one day.
 15 The ancient, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail.

The political leaders are the head and the ecclesiastical leaders are the tail. Isaiah equates the two.

Cutting off of the nation.

I have been fascinated with the work of Jonathan Cahn in "The Harbinger".

Isaiah 9
 10 The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones; the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.

When the towers fell a Sycamore tree fell and was replaced two years later by a donated cedar tree. It would have been natural to replace it with another Sycamore tree. It seems like such an odd thing. Well, Isaiah saw this and wrote it in his prophesy.

This tree lasted for 10 years before it withered and died and was removed in the spring of 2014. The keepers of the tree did everything to save it, even replacing the dirt. They could not save it. Only turning to God can we be saved. Our own efforts will fail. 

I have a friend who traveled to ground zero over spring break. I asked him to look at his photos to see if the tree was there. By fortuitous chance we have a picture of the tree on March 27, 2014. I have done searches to see if there are any more details indicating the exact day that the tree was removed. Please send me evidence of the exact day it was removed, if you have any. I would greatly appreciate it and I'll add it to this post.

UPDATE (1/19/2015): I talked to someone last night who was on the ground zero site on April 30th, 2014. The tree was still there.

UPDATE (5/9/2015): Jonathan Cahn mentioned on the Jim Bakker Show that the tree was ground into dust on April 15th, 2014(the day of the first blood red moon), which renders the date on the previous update incorrect.

I have to include this photo at a large size so you can see the detail. If you look over at the lower right corner just above the little building, you can see the faint outline of an anemic cedar tree. It was close to death. It was close to being removed. Jonathan Cahn explains that a withered tree represents the loss of a nation's powers.

Jonathan Cahn delivered the message on August 9th that the tree of hope had died and had been quietly removed.

Cutting off of the Church

On September 9th 2014, in Mesa Arizona, a servant of the Lord announced that the Lord had cut off the priesthood of the stake presidency and high council that unjustifiably excommunicated him and subsequently the whole leadership of the church lost their priesthood during the April 2014 general conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

My excommunication was an abuse of authority. Therefore, as soon as the decision was made, the Lord terminated the priesthood authority of the stake presidency and every member of the High Council who sustained this decision, which was unanimous. Thereafter, I appealed to the First Presidency, outlining the involvement of the 12 and the 70. The appeal gave notice to them all.
 The appeal was summarily denied.  

Last general conference, the entire First Presidency, the 12, the 70, and all other general authorities and auxiliaries, voted to sustain those who abused their authority in casting me out of the church. At that moment, the Lord ended all claims of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, to claim it is led by the priesthood.
 They have not  practiced what He requires. The Lord has brought about His purposes. This has been in  His heart all along. He has chosen to use small means to accomplish it, but He always uses the smallest of means to fulfill His purposes.  None of this was my doing. The Lord's strange act, was not, could not, be planned by me. Was not, could not, have been controlled by me. It was not anticipated by me, or even understood by me, until after the Lord had accomplished His will, and made it apparent to me on the evening of May 1, 2014. He alone has done this. He is the author of all of this.
Phoenix talk: Preserving the restoration. pages 6-7.

I have studied, pondered, prayed about, contemplated, meditated upon the words of this servant for hundreds of hours. I feel and taste the light in them. I know that he is a true messenger and that this message is indeed from Jesus Christ.

The Lord cut off the Church after general conference.

This is very interesting timing.

1. The Lord cuts off the country. (Since the timing is not known by me, this could be switched with the second item.)(After March 27th).
2. The Lord cuts off the church.(April 5th, 2014)
3. The "secular messenger", Jonathan Cahn announces that the country has been cut off through a story on World Net Daily. (August 9th, 2014)
4. The Lord announces through His servant, Denver Snuffer, that He has cut off the Church. (September 9th, 2014)

I find it interesting that the events marking the cutting off, were very close together. Also, the announcements of the acts occurred close together and they were about five months later.

What does this mean? Good question. I would expect an increasing death spiral of both entities.
