Once upon a time:  # 1      Set Fathers Day 2003         #2       #3        #4
I had asked a LDS Institute of Religion Professor to help me find a reference that I just could not find. Something that I had read 10 or 20 years before. He knew who I was; and he helped me anyway. He found what I was looking for. I thanked him and said “See my web site” in a few days I will have this up on the web. He said: “No, I won’t look at it.” I said why not? He said: “I have the job of teaching Church doctrine here at this college, and I don’t believe in what you do.”
I said: “But this is a quote from good LDS prophets sources.” He said: “I know it is, but the church doesn’t want that taught today. I have a good job here and if I taught that in my classes I would get booted out of here.”   What you have just read is that he was willing to trade away eternal blessings for next ‘months pay check.’ Just like any Orthodox (generally accepted) minister who compromises truth for money in an endowment, worried about his income.
Yet millions are willing to ‘deny’ the Holy Ghost and trade away their eternal blessings for a few daily crumbs of bread.
I once upon a time showed a Bishop that I really liked, some truth in the Book of Mormon about the Church Office building. And he got mad and I lost a friend.  CLICK HERE     See 1 Nephi 16: 2 also!

“O, my beloved brethren, remember
the awfulness in transgressing against that Holy God, and also the awfulness of yielding to the enticings of that cunning one.  Remember, to be carnally–minded is death, and to be spiritually–minded is life eternal.”     2 Nephi 9: 39

“Yea, wo be unto him that hearkeneth unto the precepts of men, and denieth the power of God, and the gift of the Holy Ghost!
27 Yea, wo be unto him that saith: We have received, and we need no more!
28 And in fine, wo unto all those who tremble, and are angry because of the truth of God!  For behold, he that is built upon the rock receiveth it with gladness; and he that is built upon a sandy foundation trembleth lest he shall fall.
29 Wo be unto him that shall say: We have received the word of God, and we need no more of the word of God, for we have enough!”  2 Nephi 28: 26- 29
                                                                           
Jesus said: “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.”   Matthew 12: 31         (Not be forgiven.)

“For behold, if (if) ye deny the Holy Ghost when it once has had place in you, and ye know that ye deny it, behold, this is a sin which is unpardonable;
yea, and whosoever murdereth against the light and knowledge of God, it is not easy for him to obtain forgiveness; yea, I say unto you, my son, that it is not easy for him to obtain a forgiveness.”     Alma 39: 6

Reader: “Have you denied the truth right before your eyes?” Are you blind because you refuse to see what a mess you are in? So explain to me what is forever? Because you are making a choice that lasts forever!     What is eternity worth to you? 

Now “IF” you can receive a little more, then open your eyes and read what most people don’t even want to understand.  In Your Bible it says: “And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies.  Is not this written in the book of Jasher?  So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.”  Joshua 10: 13

“Also he bade them teach the children of Judah the use of the bow: behold, it is written in the book of Jasher.   2 Samuel 1: 18

My personal copy of the Book of Jasher was published in 1887 in Salt Lake City by J. H. Parry & Company. Faithfully translated from the original Hebrew into English.
     The Title is:
literally, “the upright or correct record.”        
      
Written in Hebrew for thousands of years now.
Now let us begin with Moses, and some things that you never knew before.
We read in Chapter 70: “And in the third year from the birth of Moses, Pharaoh was sitting at a banquet, when Alparanith the queen was sitting at his right and Bathia at his left, and the lad Moses was lying upon her bosom. And the lad stretched forth his hand upon the king’s head, and took the crown from the king’s head and placed it upon his own head.
                  (That caused a lot of surprise in the king’s court.)
“If it please the king let the king send for men who shall bring before him an onyx stone and a coal of fire, and place them before the child, and if the child shall stretch forth his hand and take the onyx stone, then shall we know that with wisdom has the youth done all that he has done, and we must slay him.
And they placed the boy before them, and the lad endeavored to stretch forth his hand to the onyx stone, But the angel of the Lord took his hand and placed it upon the coal, and the coal became extinguished in his hand, and he lifted it up and put it into his mouth, and burned part of his lips and part of his tongue.”

Now does your Bible Exodus 4:10-15 make more sense to you?
“And Moses said unto the LORD, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.     (Oh God, I can’t talk very good,
 I burned my lips and tongue real bad when I was a little kid
.)

11 And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth?  or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind?  have not I the LORD?
12 Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.
13 And he said, O my Lord, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send.
14 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother?  I know that he can speak well.  And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart.
15 And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.”    Exodus 4:10- 15

We continue: “And when Moses was eighteen years old, he desired to see his father and mother and went to them in Goshen, and when Moses had come near Goshen, he came to the place …and he saw an Egyptian smiting one of his Hebrew brethren. …and when he saw there was no man there he smote the Egyptian (to death) and hid him in the sand.    And Pharaoh heard of this affair, and he ordered Moses to be slain, so God sent his angel. And the angel of the Lord took hold of the right hand of Moses, and brought him forth from Egypt, and placed him from without the borders of Egypt, a distance of forty days’ journey.
(So what do you believe? The “Movie” story of the “Ten Commandments” or what is in Hebrew scripture for thousands of years before Hollywood existed?)                                                         
Your Bible says: “And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brethren.
12 And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.”    Exodus 2: 11- 12

“At that time that the war and the siege were against Cush, Moses fled from Egypt from Pharaoh who sought to kill him for having slain the Egyptian.  And Moses was eighteen years old when he fled from Egypt from the presence of Pharaoh, and he fled and escaped to the camp of Kikianus, which at that time was besieging Cush.
And Moses was nine years in the camp of Kikianus king of Cush, all the time they were besieging Cush, and Moses went out and came in with them. (18+ 9= 27 years.)

So what about the land of Cush? Who was Cush? CLICK HERE

“And at the end of nine years, Kikianus was seized with a mortal disease, and his illness prevailed over him, and he died on the seventh day. And they wished to choose on that day a man for king from the army of Kikianus, and they found no object of their choice like Moses to reign over them.

“And all the people and nobles swore unto him to give him for a wife Adoniah the queen, the Cushite, (black) wife of Kikianus, and they made Moses king over them on that day.
“Moses was twenty-seven years old when he began to reign over Cush, and forty years did he reign,  (27 + 40 = 67 years.)

“So Moses took the city by his wisdom, and the children of Cush placed him on the throne instead of Kikianus king of Cush. And they placed the royal crown upon his head and they gave him for a wife Adoniah the Cushite queen, wife of Kikianus.
And Moses feared the Lord God of his fathers, so that he came not to her, nor did he turn his eyes to her. For Moses remembered how Abraham had made his servant Eliezer swear, saying unto him, Thou shalt not take a woman from the daughters of Canaan for my son Isaac. Therefore Moses turned not his heart nor his eyes to the wife of Kikianus all the days that he reigned over Cush.             

(The reason that you took Geography in school was to learn about the countries and lands on this earth. The land of Cush was Up-river from Egypt. Where the Blue Nile in Ethiopia, and White Nile rivers come together, at Khartoum in Sudan, to make what we call the Nile river today. Moses walked up river for many months.

And in the fortieth year of the reign of Moses over Cush, Moses was sitting on the royal throne whilst Adoniah the queen was before him, and all the nobles were sitting around him.  And Adoniah the queen said before the king and the princes. What is this thing which you, the children of Cush, have done this long time? Surely you know that for forty years that this man (Moses) has reigned over Cush he has not (NOT) approached me, nor has he served the gods of the children of Cush.  
Now therefore hear, O ye children of Cush, and let this man no more reign over you as he is not (not) of our flesh.  (He is a white man and we are black!)

“But the children of Cush (Ethiopians) gave many presents to Moses, and sent him from them with great honor. So Moses  went forth from the land of Cush, and went home and ceased to reign over Cush, and Moses was sixty-six years old when he went out of the land of Cush, for the thing was from the Lord, for the period had arrived which he had appointed in the days of old, to bring forth Israel from the affliction of the children of Ham. ( The Ethiopians of Cush are black descendents of Ham just as the Egyptians were.)      CLICK HERE to read what a prophet says about them.

So Moses went to Midian, for he was afraid to return to Egypt on account of Pharaoh, and he went and sat at a well of water in Midian.  
          (So he was gone 49 years from Egypt by then.)
And Moses related to Reuel that he had fled from Egypt and that he reigned forty years over Cush, and that they afterward had taken the government from him, and had sent him away in peace with honor and with presents.

( I think the movie story was much more exciting, huh? That’s Hollywood! Not the truth. But it sure sells more tickets. So would you like to buy a ticket to hell?)

“And when Reuel had heard the words of Moses, Reuel said within himself, I will put this man into the prison house, whereby I shall conciliate the children of Cush, for he has fled from them. And they took and put him into the prison house, and Moses was in prison ten years, and whilst Moses was in the prison house, Zipporah the daughter of Reuel took pity over him, and supported him with bread and water all the time.
  (Add it up, he is now 77 years old, and very scrubby, not good for the movies.)

“And Moses was confined in the dungeon in the house of Reuel for ten years.
And
at the end of ten years, which was the first year of the reign of Pharoah over Egypt, in the place of his father. Zipporah said to her father Reuel, No person inquires or seeks after the Hebrew man, whom thou didst bind in prison now ten years. (So for 10 years the scruffy Hebrew, not Jew; Moses was in jail.)

Now therefore, if it seem good in thy sight, let us send and see whether he is living or dead, but her father knew not that she had supported him. And the thing seemed good in the sight of Reuel, and he did according to the word of his daughter, and sent to the dungeon to ascertain what became of Moses.”

(Wow, can you just try to imagine how this story thousands of years old about what really happened to Moses would be in the movies?  Don’t fall asleep it’s so slow.
You like the Hollywood story better, huh?                                  
Now Fathers Day June 15, 2003 at 4am. Utah time I wonder how many thousands of people that I saw last week as I drove down Highway 89 in the center of Utah are aware of the plagues coming upon them? It has been on the National News about the swarms of Mormon crickets making the roads slick in Idaho, Nevada and Utah. Utah estimates are that over 2 million hectares are lost to the crickets. Just one hectare equals about 2 ½ acres.  I was amazed myself at the swarms of crickets on the highway.  People are oblivious to the plagues and prophecies about a modern Moses. CLICK HERE                           

“And he saw, and behold the man Moses was living in the dungeon,
standing upon his feet, praising and praying to the God of his ancestors. And Reuel commanded Moses be brought out of the dungeon, so they shaved him and changed his (stinky) prison garments and (he) ate bread. And afterward Moses went into the garden of Reuel which was behind the house, and he there prayed to the Lord his God, who had done mighty wonders for him.

”And it was that whilst he prayed he looked opposite to him, and behold a sapphire stick was placed in the ground, which was planted in the midst of the garden. And he approached the stick and he looked, and behold the name of the Lord God of hosts was engraved thereon, written and developed upon the stick. And he read it and stretched forth his hand and he plucked it like a forest tree from the thicket, and the stick was in his hand.
        
“And this is the stick with which all the works of our God were performed, after he had created heaven and earth, and all the hosts of them, seas, rivers and all their fishes. And when God had driven Adam from the garden of Eden, he took the stick in his hand and went and tilled the ground from which he was taken. And the stick came down to Noah and was given to Shem and his descendents, until it came into the hand of Abraham the Hebrew.
(And you thought that Moses’s wood Shepard’s staff parted the sea, huh!) 

Genesis tells: “And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.
13 And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eschol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram.”    Genesis 14: 12- 13

“And when Abraham had given all he had to his son Isaac, he also gave to him this stick. And when Jacob had fled to Padan-aram, he took it into his hand, and when he returned to his father he had not left it behind him. Also when he went down to Egypt he took it into his hand and gave it to Joseph, one portion above his brethren, for Jacob had taken it by force from his brother Esau. And after the death of Joseph, the nobles of Egypt came into the house of Joseph, and the stick came into the hand of Reuel the Midianite, and when he went out of Egypt, he took it in his hand and planted it in his garden.                                                  
“And all the mighty men of the Kinites tried to pluck it when they endeavoured to get Zipporah his daughter, but they were unsuccessful. So that the stick remained planted in the garden of Reuel, until he came who had a right to it and took it.
And when Reuel saw the stick in the hand of Moses, he wondered at it, and he gave him his daughter Zipporah for a wife.
“In those days Moses, the son of Amram, in Midian, took Zipporah, the daughter of Reuel the Midianite, for a wife. And Zipporah walked in the ways of the daughters of Jacob, (Israel) she was nothing short of the righteousness of Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah.” (Would you give your daughter to a 77 year old man?)
