                           Three Grand Orders
"There are three grand orders of priesthood referred to here.
1st. The King of Shiloam (Salem) had power and authority over that of Abraham, holding the key and the power of endless life. Angels desire to look into it, but they have set up too many stakes.
God cursed the children of Israel
because they would not receive the last law from Moses. (They just received the judgment law, huh! Just like millions now, today in 2003 – who receive the judgments of the law because they will not receive the last law.)

The sacrifice required of Abraham in the offering up of Isaac, shows that if a man would attain to the keys of the kingdom of an endless life; he must sacrifice all things. When God offers a blessing or knowledge to a man, and he refuses to receive it, he will be damned. The Israelites prayed that God would speak to Moses and not to them; in consequence of which he cursed them with a carnal law.
What was the power of
Melchizedek? 'Twas not the Priesthood of Aaron which administers in outward ordinances, and the offering of sacrifices. Those holding the fulness of the Melchizedek Priesthood are kings and priests of the Most High God, holding the keys of power and blessings. In fact, that Priesthood is a perfect law of theocracy, and stands as God to give laws to the people, administering endless lives to the sons and daughters of Adam. (Read link # 1 again to understand what is the fulness of priesthood.) CLICK HERE To get a fulness as Jesus Christ received.

So do you “really” believe what Jesus Christ said about sacrifice:
“And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel      CLICK HERE see the 12 Tribes
29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.”      Matthew 19: 28-30     AH! Come on now. Do you really believe what Jesus said?  Do you really want everlasting life with 100 times the blessings?  OR do you just give lip service to the commandments.   Hypocrites can CLICK HERE to see.

Abraham says to Melchizedek,
I believe all that thou hast taught me concerning the priesthood and the coming of the Son of Man; so Melchizedek ordained Abraham and sent him away. Abraham rejoiced, saying, Now I have a priesthood.   (A Priesthood)

                      The Mission of Elijah
Salvation could not come to the world without the mediation of Jesus Christ.
How shall God come to the rescue of this generation? He will send Elijah the prophet. (He has.) The law revealed to Moses in Horeb never was revealed to the children of Israel as a nation.
Elijah shall reveal the covenants to seal the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the children to the fathers.
The anointing and sealing is to be called, elected and made sure.
Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days nor end of life
, but made like unto the Son of God, (a king) abideth a priest continually." The Melchizedek Priesthood holds the right from the eternal God, and not by descent from father and mother; and that priesthood is as eternal as God Himself, having neither beginning of days nor end of life.

The 2nd Priesthood is Patriarchal authority. Go to and finish the temple, and God will fill it with power, and you will then receive more knowledge concerning this priesthood.

The 3rd is what is called the Levitical (Aaronic) Priesthood, consisting of priests to administer in outward ordinances, made without an oath; but the Priesthood of Melchizedek is by an oath and covenant. The Holy Ghost is God's messenger to administer in all those priesthoods.

Jesus Christ is the heir of this Kingdom—the Only Begotten of the Father according to the flesh, and holds the keys over all this world.
Men have to suffer that they may come upon Mount Zion and be exalted above the heavens.
I know a man that has been caught up to the third heavens, and can say, with Paul, that we have seen and heard things that are not lawful to utter. (Aug. 27, 1843.)   Documentary History of the Church 5:554-556

Instructions Respecting Plurality of Wives

In the afternoon, rode to the prairie to show some of the brethren some land. Evening, at home, and walked up and down the streets with my scribe. Gave instructions to try those persons who were preaching, teaching, or practicing the doctrine of plurality of wives; for, according to the law, I hold the keys of this power in the last days; for there is never but one on earth at a time on whom the power and its keys are conferred; and I have constantly said no man shall have but one wife at a time, unless the Lord directs otherwise. (October 5, 1843.)--DHC 6:46   Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith page 321   
Wow, what a mouthful said in those pages. Read pages 319-321 again.

“THE burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see.
2 Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles.
3 I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness.   Isaiah 13: 1-3      
(A person is
not sanctified until they male their calling and election sure. And hear those precious words to themselves, and get a promise. See Helaman 3:35  how to be sanctified.)
   To Gain Salvation the Laws of God Must Be Obeyed
 I * * * spoke to the people, showing them that to get salvation we must not only do some things, but everything which God has commanded. Men may preach and practice everything except those things which God commands us to do, and will be damned at last. We may tithe mint and rue, and all manner of herbs, and still not obey the commandments of God. The object with me is to obey and teach others to obey God in just what He tells us to do. It mattereth not whether the principle is popular or unpopular, I will always maintain a true principle, even if I stand alone in it. (Feb. 21, 1844.) DHC 6:223      TPJS 395 

“I want every man that goes to be a king and a priest. When he gets on the mountains, he may want to talk with his God; when with the savage nations have power to govern, &c. If we don't get volunteers, wait till after the election." (Feb. 23, 1844.) DHC 6:224  TPJS 332

“All are bound by the principles of virtue and happiness, but
one great privilege of the Priesthood is to obtain revelations of the mind and will of God. It is also the privilege of the Melchizedek Priesthood, to reprove, rebuke, and admonish, as well as to receive revelation.
If the Church knew all the commandments, one-half they would condemn through prejudice and ignorance.”
TPJS 111
(The LDS  authorities have no revelation for the past 100 years. Because they gave up the keys to revelations.
So what if an organization goes 100 years without revelation? Because it has given up polygamy, and the keys to kings and revelations.
So what if some man rebukes, reproves, admonishes, and exposes errors?)

“Truth and error, good and evil cannot be reconciled. Judge Adams had some enemies, but such a man ought not to have had one. I saw him first at Springfield, when on my way from Missouri to Washington.
He sought me out when a stranger, took me to his home, encouraged and cheered me, and gave me money. He has been a most intimate friend.
I anointed him to the patriarchal power—to receive the keys of knowledge and power, by revelation to himself.”       Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith 325    Keep reading how to get to see Jesus Christ.

Now we continue with Isaiah:The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle.      (They come from Russia.)

5 They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.  (Over the North pole, to destroy the USA!)
Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.   (From the Almighty.)
7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt:
8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.
9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.        (Even children as sinners.)

10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.   (1/10/2003 Gold @ $354 per ounce.  That makes me at 240# worth about $ 1,360,000 dollars.) 

13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.  (Now that you know what will cause the ‘shaking’ you understand more. Big holes on the ground, and the earth removed out of her place, in the wrath.)
14 And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land.  (So where did your ancestors live? Not in Africa I hope.)

15 Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword.
16 Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.    (Do you really want to see that happen?  I have cried.)

17 Behold, I will stir up the Medes (Russians) against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.                 (arrows)         
Their bows (Missiles) also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children. (Radiation kills kids quicker.)
19 And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.”     Isaiah 13: 1-19
(God burned Sodom
like USA will burn.)  

No more Christmas Season and Super sales.
And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city!  for in one hour is thy judgment come.   (Boom! ---  Christmas no more!)
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more.” 
18: 9-11 
 “Inquires one—"Do you really believe that such judgments are coming upon our nation?" I do not merely believe, but I know it, just as well as I knew, twenty-eight years before it commenced, that there would be war between the North and the South. We knew that by a revelation which God gave through his servant Joseph Smith, twenty-eight years (28) before the war of the rebellion commenced; and it was published in the languages of various nations years and years before the war was inaugurated, and it took place precisely according to the words of the Prophet, and it began in the very locality specified in the revelation, namely, South Carolina. We know that these judgments are coming with the same certainty that we knew concerning the war of the rebellion. 
 (It has been
28 years since my plane crash. CLICK HERE)

But there will be a chance to escape from these judgments for all who are willing to gather to the place of refuge which God has appointed in the mountains; all people can rally and gather to that place if they wish to do so. This is spoken of in many places.
Let us turn to the fifth chapter of Isaiah, and see what is said there, concerning the ensign.
In the 26th verse we read—"And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from afar, and will hiss unto them from the ends of the earth; and behold they shall come with speed
swiftly." An ensign for the nations lifted up from afar! Isaiah, where were you when you delivered that prophecy? In Palestine. What land would be far off from Palestine where you resided? I think this American continent would be about as far off as almost any portion of the globe.

When the Lord commences this message it will be sent from the nation "afar off" to the ends of the earth; and there will be a gathering connected with it, of that people who shall come with speed swiftly. The Prophet probably did not know the nature and power of steam in the days to which he referred, and that the gathering would be effected by means of steamboats and railroads; but he did understand that there would be some very swift method of conveyance. He did not understand the meaning of railroads, and many things connected with them, for they are a modern invention, and the terms used in designating them are also of modern origin. But he saw in vision that people should come with speed swiftly from the ends of the earth, when the Lord should hiss unto them. (Orson Pratt in “1875” didn’t know of Airliners.) He, of course, described the events he saw in the best language at his command.
In his sixty-second chapter, Isaiah says—
"Go through, go through the gates
; prepare the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people. Behold, the Lord hath proclaimed unto the end of the world. Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him." It seems then that he did describe something about making these railroads. "But," inquires one, "what did he mean by saying 'go through, go through the gates?'" I do not know.   
CLICK HERE see what I said about the gates.)
Probably he did not understand what a tunnel was in those days, but when he saw in vision a long train of cars, without any animal power to draw them, dart into the mountain, and emerge on the opposite side of the mountain, I do not know that he could describe it in any better language than by saying—"Go through, go through
the gates;" and then, when he wanted to represent the smoothness of the railroads, I do not know that he could do it any better than by saying—  "Cast up a highway, gather out the stones," etc.    
(Have you understood about the Gates on my link above yet?)

With the casting up of this highway a proclamation was to be made. How extensive? In one region of country? Oh, no. "Behold, the Lord has proclaimed unto the ends of the world, behold thy salvation cometh, his reward is with him, and his work before him." What else?

"They shall call them the holy people." What people? Why, the people that should lift up the standard spoken of in the preceding verse. Lift up a standard for the people, prepare the way for the people; behold they shall call thee the redeemed of the Lord; thou shalt be called, sought out, a city not forsaken. Jerusalem was not sought out, neither has it been a city not forsaken. Every one knows that Jerusalem was in existence before Joshua led the people into the land of Canaan, it was an ancient city among the heathen before it was conquered and taken possession of by the house of Israel. And everyone knows that Jerusalem was to be forsaken for a good many centuries before the generation should come that this proclamation should be made, or this highway should be cast up, or the ensign should be raised upon the mountains, when the people should be called a holy people, the redeemed of the Lord, called, sought out, a city not forsaken, etc.   (So where are the heathen cities today? The cities that are  forsaken? They get the Nuclear Warheads! and get to burn like Sodom!)  

I can bear testimony, so can a great many other men, that when we came here in the summer of 1847, and sought out this city, the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,
we sought it out by the Spirit of the Lord, the Spirit of revelation which rested upon us, and we were guided by that Spirit. We did not lay out a little narrow tract of land, half a mile square, but understanding the purposes of God in some measure, we laid out this city with broad streets, and extended it over an area of several square miles, and as you see it at the present time. Why did we take this course? Because we knew by the Spirit of God that rested upon us, the great work that the Lord our God intended to accomplish here in the midst of the desert.
We new that he would gather his people from the various nations and establish them here in Zion, as a standard or ensign to the nations, that as many as would might gather here before the judgments should come. Read the 11th chapter of Isaiah about this same ensign. "It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnants of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth."
(I will have Aussie wives, French wives, Irish wives, all tribes wives.)  CLICK HERE to see where the tribes are today. See Mormon 8:40 where you may get many wives too!  

Before Judah and the ten tribes of Israel could ever be gathered an ensign has to be (future in “1875”) lifted up for the nations. Not for Judah and Israel alone, but for the nations afar off, for the Gospel has been restored for the benefit of the Gentiles—every nations, kindred, tongue and people—as well as for the benefit of the dispersed tribes of Israel. (Internet = for the nations afar off. They can see this web site, I get emails from all over the world.)

So far the work has progressed, so far the Lord our God has stretched forth his hand to establish his kingdom upon the earth. But what is the destiny of this kingdom? Read the Prophets; hear what Daniel says.
The Church is not the Kingdom. CLICK HERE

He saw the kingdom of the latter days, which, in its commencement, was like a stone cut out of the mountains without hands, (God does his own work) become a great mountain and fill not only the American continent, but the whole earth. What else does Daniel say? "And the kingdom, and the dominion and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heavens shall be given into the hands of the Saints of the Most High, for his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and it shall stand forever."

It seems then that this is the destiny of this kingdom. If you want to know the destiny of the nations of our globe, it is this—one government, one kingdom, not half a dozen empires, republics, and this, that and the other governments, but one kingdom, everlasting in its nature, will have dominion over the whole of our globe. But are you not committing treason to preach in this way? If such predictions mean treason, perhaps it would be well enough to get out an indictment against the Prophet Daniel and other ancient Prophets, and bring them up and try them, and see if they are treasonable characters or not.
We are preaching their words; and if it is treason to preach the Bible, would it not be a good plan to burn it up, and not have such things for the people to read and preach about? But if we have the liberty in this glorious land of ours, to believe the Bible and the prophecies it contains, have we not also the liberty to tell them from that good Book what is going to take place on the face of the earth? I think so. And I have, this afternoon, as simply as I know how, in the simplest language I have at my command, endeavored to convey to your judgments and understandings that which God has spoken by the mouths of his ancient Prophets, that you may know what he is now doing, and what he intends to do until the consummation determined upon is performed upon all the face of the earth, and the elect gathered out from the four winds of heaven. Amen.”    Journal of Discourses   17: 319-321

(So now you have decided to live on into the future I suppose. That’s a natural response. So what is necessary to get a promise from God that you will have the blessings of heaven? I could make a list of the Bible commands, all 613 listed. The 248 things we are supposed to do. And the 365 things we are not to do.  But that is not enough! Matthew 4:4 says to ‘live by every word’ out of the mouth of God.  Easy for the elect to do because it’s all correct and brings eternal life to those who obey God. 

So after this tribulation gets passed us, what will it be like in the Millennium? Well first thing is that billions will be burnt up, starved, killed in the wars that will eliminate the wicked from the earth. War is a good thing that people don’t realize. Jesus leads the armies of heaven. He has said that his garments will be stained with blood. So do you have your garments? We read: “Behold, I come as a thief.  Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.”     Revelation 16: 15

(So if you can get the proper garments then you won’t be naked and shamed. You are watching or you wouldn’t be here on my web site.
Just what is necessary for a Zion people to be prepared for the coming of Jesus Christ to his Kingdom? First it is the King’s dominion, with his rules and commandments as the law. So decide if you want to live by God’s rules or leave this earth. Simple choice.)

“God has called upon us to warn this generation. He has set His hand to establish Zion—the great Zion of God—about which the prophets have said so much. No prophet has spoken more pointedly on this subject than Isaiah.   
The Lord has never sent a message to the inhabitants of the earth but what it has been despised, in a great measure, by most of them.
As it was in the days of Noah and Lot, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man. 
This principle of
unbelief has existed in every age; it exists to-day.
The Elders of Israel have had to contend with this power of darkness, with persecution, oppression, ridicule and opposition from those who should have received their message—a message which was for the good and salvation of those who rejected it.   (Still happening in 2003)
Isaiah has told us what will come to pass in the latter days concerning those who fight against Mount Zion and against the children of Zion. Every weapon will be broken, every nation that will not serve Zion shall be utterly wasted away, saith the Lord; for the Lord will fight in defence of the land of Zion.”    “1869”
