Why are so many afraid of the truth?

  Some can be waist deep in water, and still say it’s not flooding.
         Some can be chest deep in sewage, and still say it doesn’t stink.
                 Some can be neck deep in truth, and still say it is a lie.  Why?

Brigham Young said:   "The women are a great deal more inclined to believe the truth than the men;
they comprehend it more quickly, and if we cannot save the men, let us save the women for God's sake, and do not find fault with us."           Journal of Discourses 14: 120        

“For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.”  
Old Testament
  Malachi 3: 6  
“Jesus Christ
the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”   
New Testament
  Hebrews 13: 8
Every good gift and every perfect
gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”   New Testament 
James 1: 17 
Whoso findeth
a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.”    Proverbs 18: 22 
For God doth
not walk in crooked paths, neither doth he turn to the right hand nor to the left, neither doth he vary from that which he hath said, therefore his paths are straight, and his course is one eternal round.”     Doctrine and Covenants   3:2
“LISTEN to the voice of the Lord your God, even Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, whose course is one eternal round,
the same today as yesterday, and forever.”  Doctrine and Covenants  35:1  

“Thereby showing that he is the same God yesterday, today, and forever.  Amen.”  Doctrine and Covenants 20:12 
“By these things
we know that there is a God in heaven, who is infinite and eternal, from everlasting to everlasting the same unchangeable God, the framer of heaven and earth, and all things which are in them.”          Doctrine and Covenants  20:17

Brigham Young said: “My advice to the sisters is,
Never be sealed to any man unless you wish to be. I say to you High Priests and Elders, Never from this time ask a woman to be sealed to you, unless she wants to be.       Journal of Discourses   6: 308 
(I have taken his advice. Whoever is sealed to me has asked to be sealed to me. Because it should be a woman's choice.)
President John Taylor said: “It seems that in the different ages of the world in the past, there has existed,
as there does to-day, a species of self-righteousness, self-complacence, a reliance upon the wisdom, intelligence and virtue of man.  In that day the Scribes and Pharisees, the lawyers and doctors, the great Sanhedrin, the pious men, thought they were the peculiar elect of God.  The Almighty has never altered his purpose, never changed his designs nor abrogated his laws; but with one steady undeviating course from the time the morning stars first sang together for joy, until the earth shall be redeemed.”     Journal of Discourses    15: 23

Apostle Orson Pratt said: “Well, then, we have their testimony
that they are not the kingdom of God, for they have denied many of the great characteristics belonging to the kingdom, such as the gift of new revelation, the gift of prophecy, which was always in the kingdom of God, and have bound up a few books and called them the full canon of Scripture.      Journal of Discourses  15: 75

CLICK around on my web site and read dozens of revelations, in the past 20 years.  @    You just might learn something.

Brigham Young said again: “I expect one thing will be true that Joseph said when living. A gentleman came to see him and asked him a great many questions, and among the rest he said—
"I suppose you calculate that you are just right, and that you "Mormons" are all going to be saved and everybody else will be damned
Said Joseph, "Sir, I will tell you this one thing, all the rest of the world will be damned, and I expect that most of the "Mormons" will be unless they do better than they have done."   Brother George A. Smith has been reading a little out of the revelation concerning celestial marriage, (DC 132) and I want to say to my sisters that if you lift you heels against this revelation, and say that you would obliterate it, and put it out of existence if you had the power to nullify and destroy it, I say that if you imbibe that spirit and feeling, you will go to hell, just as sure as you are living women.”      
  Journal of Discourses 
17: 159    

Again President Brigham Young said: “
The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those who enter into polygamy.
Others attain unto a glory and may even be permitted to come into the presence of the Father and the Son;
but they cannot reign as kings in glory, because they had blessings offered unto them, and they refused to accept them.”        Journal of Discourses  11: 269 

Again Brigham Young said: “
The women are entitled to salvation if they live according to the word that is given to them; and if their husbands are good men, and they are obedient to them, they are entitled to certain blessings, and they will have the privilege of receiving certain blessings that they cannot receive unless they are sealed to men who will be exalted. Now, where a man in this Church says, "I don't want but one wife, I will live my religion with one," he will perhaps be saved in the celestial kingdom; but when he gets there
he will not find himself in possession of any wife at all. He has had a talent that he has hid up. He will come forward and say, "Here is that which thou gavest me, I have not wasted it, and here is the one talent," and he will not enjoy it, but it will be taken and given to those who have improved the talents they received, and he will find himself without any wife, and he will remain single for ever and ever. But if the woman is determined not to enter into a plural marriage, that woman when she comes forth will have the privilege of living in single blessedness through all eternity. Well, that is very good, a very nice place to be a minister to the wants of others.
I recollect a sister conversing with Joseph Smith on this subject. She told him:
"Now, don't talk to me; when I get into the celestial kingdom, if I ever do get there, I shall request the privilege of being a ministering angel; that is the labor that I wish to perform.
I don't want any companion in that world; and if the Lord will make me a ministering angel, it is all I want."
Joseph said, "Sister, you talk very foolishly, you do not know what you will want." He then said to me: "Here, brother Brigham, you seal this lady to me." I sealed her to him. This was my own sister according to the flesh.
Now, sisters, do not say,
"I do not want a husband when I get up in the resurrection." You do not know what you will want.
I tell this so that you can get the idea. If in the resurrection you really want to be single and alone, and live so forever and ever, and be made servants, while others receive the highest order of intelligence and are bringing worlds into existence, you can have the privilege. They who will be exalted cannot perform all the labor, they must have servants and you can be servants to them.”    Journal of Discourses   16: 167 
Some Mormon
hypocrites say they believe in “Eternal Marriage” so that personal relations can last forever. Yet they ridicule the idea that some men may have wives who are just 80 when they are 120 years old.   Genesis 17:17 Tells that Sarah, Abrahams 1st. wife gave birth to Isaac when she was 90 years old. Neat Huh !
They are hypocrites who say they believe that
the Millennium will bring conditions that people will live to be the age of a tree (120) just as the scriptures tell us will happen.  See this:
“And in that day Satan shall not have power to tempt any man. 
And there shall be no sorrow because there is no death. 
In that day an infant shall not die until he is old; and his life shall be as the age of a tree;  And when he dies he shall not sleep, that is to say in the earth, but shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye, and shall be caught up, and his rest shall be glorious.  Yea, verily I say unto you, in that day when the Lord shall come, he shall reveal all things—”    Doctrine and Covenants  101: 2832  
The Hypocrites didn’t believe me when I spoke the truth.  Huh! 
President George Q. Cannon said: “
We hear about plural marriage, or polygamy as it is termed. That is merely a war cry.  It is merely used because it is a popular catch-word, and they who use it know full well that they only use it in that form and for that purpose; but that is not the real thing at issue. There is something more than that, deeper than that, higher than that, broader than that; but it is not necessary to let it be known that they are aiming at that. Polygamy, therefore, answers the purpose.  
It appeals to the ignorant; it excites the clergy
; it stirs up the passions of the impure, and it inflames the hatred that is necessary to intensify this conflict. But if such a thing were possible that polygamy could be wiped out to day, without wiping out our faith
and making us apostates, and every man who has a plural wife was to put her away, it would not lessen the hatred of those who oppose this work—not one particle. Of course, if we became apostates we would be like the world, and we would be of the world. But I repeat, it is not polygamy; we know that. We know that the fiercest persecution we have passed through in our experience was anterior to the practice of polygamy, was when polygamy was not a doctrine of this Church, when it was not a practice of any member of this Church. Therefore, the hatred that is entertained to-day against this work is not traceable to that doctrine nor to that practice.”   Journal of Discourses   24: 362 

Heber C. Kimball said: “You might as well deny "Mormonism,"
and turn away from it, as to oppose the plurality of wives.
Let the Presidency of this Church, and the Twelve Apostles, and all the authorities unite and say with one voice that they will oppose that doctrine, and the whole of them would be damned.
What are you opposing it for? It is a principle that God has revealed for the salvation of the human family. He revealed it to Joseph the Prophet in this our dispensation; and that which he revealed he designs to have carried out by his people.”     Journal of Discourses  5: 204  

Orson Pratt: “This is Bible doctrine as it existed in those days. I know that it has been argued that the first woman, here spoken of, was merely a betrothed woman, and not married.
But if this be so, what a curious saying this in our text—that her duty of marriage shall he not diminish if he take another wife.
Oh, what a fearful curse upon a man that refused to become a polygamist, and would not attend to the law of God!
A curse pronounced by the Almighty upon him
, also the anathemas of all the people as well as from God! The word of the Lord was that all the people should say amen to this curse.
Now, if I had lived in those days, I should not have considered it very desirable to bring myself under the curse of heaven, and then have the curse of all the twelve tribes of Israel upon my head. I should not have liked it at all.
I would rather have gone into polygamy according to the command, even if it had subjected me to a term of five years in a penitentiary.”   Journal of Discourses  17: 217- 219 

Spencer W. Kimball’s Grandpa Heber C. Kimball said:
“All who profess to be Latter-day Saints
will not be saved in the celestial world, for they cannot abide the celestial law, but all will attain to the glory which they can abide. Every righteous thing that we do in this mortality is a rudimental lesson in the celestial law of our God.   Let us go to with our might mind, and strength to abide the celestial law, as it shall be revealed to us from time to time, until we can abide its fulness, that we may ultimately be introduced into the presence of our heavenly Father to dwell with him for ever more.”     Journal of Discourses   11: 146 

So today in 2004, I say to you just how much proof do you need to understand that you have a choice to be a servant to others for eternity,
or comply with the laws of God and work out your own salvation here on earth.  I know of “many” women who trapped their husbands with sex,  into marriage.  Why not just give them a choice of who they want to be with and not have them try to trap some man. Just like the Bachelors on TV. None of them have followed through with marriage. BUT the Ladies have married their TV. choices. Women should have a choice, and not be forced to take the only, or any offer they may get.
IF, women could just pick the man they want, and then be good and faithful the world would soon be a better place to live.           

“How many are there in this Church who are now wavering and shaking because they have spoken against the ordinances of heaven, and especially against that ordinance which God has revealed for the exaltation of the children of men in celestial marriage? Hold that as sacred as your own soul: if you cannot see the beauty and glory of it, and feel it in your own hearts, say nothing against it.
This earth was placed in the hands of Adam and his sons, and he is the Lord of the earth; the male (men) portion of the human family are the lords of the earth, and they are full of wickedness, evil and destruction, and especially in their acts towards the female sex. But God will hold them accountable.
The fact is, let the pure principles of the kingdom of God be taught to men and women, and far more of the latter (women) than the former will receive and obey them. What shall we do with them? They (women) want exaltation, they want to be in the great family of heaven, they do not want to be cast off, then they must be taken into the families of those who prove themselves worthy to be exalted with the Gods. Who it is that can not see the beauty and the excellency of celestial marriage, and having our children sealed to us? What should we do without this?”   Brigham Young         Journal of Discourses    18: 249 

Just ask your leaders today in 2004 what they think. They will tell you that those great pioneers were ignorant men. The leaders today have a better plan than what God has revealed. Just look at all the success the church has today. Little persecution, a great reputation, lots of money. Enough money, more than $100 million dollars to build the new 21,000 seat “Hinckley Center” for Conferences. 
And so we just let the widows and single women cry to the Lord.  Aw, they are just lonely women.

“Many of this people have broken their covenants by speaking evil of one another, by speaking against the servants of God, and by finding fault with the plurality of wives and trying to sink it out of existence. But you cannot do that, for God will cut you off and raise up another people that will carry out His purposes in righteousness, unless you walk up to the line of your duty. On the one hand there is glory and exaltation; and on the other no tongue can express the suffering and affliction this people will pass through, if they do not repent.”   
Heber C. Kimball  
Journal of Discourses  4: 108 

Just look around my web site and you will learn why a million people in Utah will have to die, and suffer affliction soon just like he said.  Those 11 million degree warheads will burn many people. 

Again he said: “The Lord designs that we shall be separate and distinct from every other people, and wishes to make us His peculiar people, and to raise up for himself a pure seed who will keep His law and walk in His statutes. For this purpose did He give the revelation on plurality of wives, as sacred a revelation as was ever given to any people, and fraught with greater blessings to us than we can possibly conceive of, if we do not abuse our privileges and commit sin. This doctrine is a holy and pure principle, in which the power of God for the regeneration of mankind is made manifest; but while it offers immense blessings, and is a source of immense power to God's people, it will bring sure and certain damnation to those who seek through its means to defile themselves with the daughters of Eve. All those who take wives from any other motive than to subserve the great purpose which God had in view in commanding his servants to take unto themselves many wives, will not be able to retain them. Wives are sealed to men by an everlasting covenant that cannot be broken, if the parties live faithfully before God, and perform with a single eye to his glory the duties of that sacred contract. Jesus Christ said to the Pharisees, when they tempted him upon the subject of a man's putting away his wife, "For the hardness of your heart Moses allowed you to give a bill of divorcement, but from the beginning of the creation it was not so."
"What, therefore God hath joined together let no man put asunder."
   I speak of plurality of wives as one of the most holy principles that God ever revealed to man, and all those who exercise an influence against it, unto whom it is taught, man or woman will be damned, and they and all who will be influenced by them, will suffer the buffetings of Satan in the flesh; for the curse of God will be upon them, and poverty, and distress, and vexation of spirit will be their portion; while those who honor this and every sacred institution of heaven will shine forth as the stars in the firmament of heaven, and of the increase of their kingdom and glory there shall be no end. This will equally apply to Jew, Gentile, and Mormon, male and female, old and young.
The words of the Lord to the Church, through Joseph the Prophet, in Sep., 1832, will apply very well to many now:—"And your minds in times past have been darkened because of unbelief, and because you have treated lightly the things you have received, which vanity and unbelief hath brought the whole Church under condemnation; and this condemnation resteth upon the children of Zion, even all, and they shall remain under this condemnation until they repent and remember the new covenant, even the Book of Mormon and the former commandments which I have given them, not only to say, but to do according to that which I have written, that they may bring forth fruit meet for their Father's kingdom, otherwise there remaineth a
scourge (Nuclear fallout)  and a judgment to be poured out upon the children of Zion; for shall the children of the kingdom pollute my holy land?"  (D & C 84: 54-59)   
    Journal of Discourses  
11: 211 

Do you need to hear a prophecy from the Parowan Because the people have treated lightly the commands from God. Destruction is ahead for us.
I will tell you that most people reading this will just procrastinate just like Alma 34 tells us in the Book of Mormon, (millions die) when their blood begins to be shed
Then they will be to sorry, too late!        Do you want to see that Fact’s don’t Matter? CLICK HERE  

Joseph F. Smith, the 6th. LDS Church President: “We are fore-ordained to become conformed to the likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ; and in order that we may become like unto him, we must
follow in his footsteps, even until we sanctify ourselves by the law of truth and righteousness.
This is the law of the celestial kingdom; and when we die, its power will bring us forth in the morning of the first resurrection, clothed with glory, immortality, and eternal lives.

we do keep the law
that God has given unto us in the flesh, which we have the privilege of receiving and understanding, we cannot be quickened by its glory, neither can we receive the fullness thereof and the exaltation of the celestial kingdom.
   "There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of the world, upon which all blessings are predicated; and when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated." (See DC 130:20 and 82:10;  132:5-6; 
82:3-4;  88:38;  78;7;  76:29-35; And  Mormon 8:38. 
Mark these for future reference in your scriptures.)
We must,
therefore, learn the laws of heaven, which are the laws of the Gospel, live and obey them with all our hearts, and in faith abide in them, perfecting ourselves thereby, in order to receive the fulness of the glory of that kingdom.
I make these remarks, not to the departed, but to the living—to you as well as myself, who still tarry in the flesh, to battle with the weaknesses and infirmities of human nature, who have yet to learn by experience, that we may be instructed in the things necessary to know, in order that our course here may secure unto us the greatest reward in the presence of our Father and God.”        Journal of Discourses  19: 260 

President J. M. Grant:   “
I am pleased with the general spirit manifested through the servants of the Lord who have spoken to us to-day. We believe that a man will be rewarded according to his works, for it is not written that he shall be rewarded according to his ordination, or the special situation or place in which he may be called to act in the Church of God; but it is written, and that law,
I believe,
has never been revoked by high heaven, or by any of its legates to earth; hence it stands immutable, that all men shall be rewarded according to their works.
   I am aware that many suppose that we entertain some unchristian feelings to those out of the Church, but this is a mistake; we only wish that persons who have shed the blood of our Apostles may be rewarded just according to their works. And we expect that, sooner or later, they will have meted out to them that reward which the Almighty actually knows that they deserve.
I am fully aware that many people have been bred and raised in poor-pussyism all their days, both in America and in Europe, and when they hear doctrines and principles taught by men who speak as freedom permits them, and as freemen have a right to speak, those who are clothed with the garments of poor-pussyism get the grunts;
well, grunt on until you grunt it all out.
Do all the Saints, in their individual capacities, understand this? The doctrine is applicable to the nations and states. Is it not applicable to all people? It is.   "Why," says one, "bless my soul, you do not say that it is applicable to females, do you?" Yes I do. "Oh, dear, what will the FIRST wife do in that case?" If a man has fifty (50) wives and the fiftieth is the best, does the most good, she will get the greatest reward, in spite of all the grunting on the part of the first one.”          Journal of Discourses   3: 126 

Heber C. Kimball again: (He’s great !) : “I would not be afraid to promise a man who is sixty (60) years of age, if he will take the counsel of brother Brigham and his brethren, that he will renew his age.
I have noticed that a man who has but one wife, and is inclined to that doctrine, soon begins to wither and dry up, while a man who goes into plurality looks fresh, young, and sprightly. Why is this?
Because God loves that man, and because he honours His work and word.  Some of you may not believe this; but I not only believe it—
I also know it. For a man of God to be confined to one woman is small business; for it is as much as we can do now to keep up under the burdens we have to carry; and I do not know what we should do if we had only one wife apiece.”   Journal of Discourses   5: 22 

Isaiah said that men would have 7 wives, CLICK HERE on average. Some men may have 50 as J. M. Grant said above.
