(This series will tell you how to do it. I will put on the web one or two each week.)  
Apostle Peter said:
“Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall.”    2 Peter 1:10   So how can we do that? 
So a real 'true' prophet tells us:
Joseph said: “There are a great many wise men and women too in our midst who are too wise
to be taught;
therefore they must die in their ignorance, and in the resurrection they will find their mistake.
Many seal up the door of heaven by saying, So far God may reveal and I will believe.
men who become heirs of God and joint heirs with Jesus Christ will have to receive the fulness of the ordinances of his kingdom; and those who will not receive all the ordinances will come short of the fullness of that glory, if they do not lose the whole.”     Joseph Smith,
Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, selected and arranged by Joseph Fielding Smith [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1976], 309.) Hereafter TPJS and the page number. TPJS 309 Order the Book here:   A Very good book to have.

“Now what is this other Comforter? It is no more nor less than the Lord
Jesus Christ
Himself; and this is the sum and substance of the whole matter; that when any man obtains this last Comforter, he will have the personage of Jesus Christ to attend him, or appear unto him from time to time, and even He will manifest the Father unto him, and they will take up their abode with him, and the visions of the heavens will be opened unto him, and the Lord will teach him face to face, and he may have a perfect knowledge of the mysteries of the Kingdom of God.         Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith  150-151  

Jesus Christ himself said:
“Draw near unto me and I will draw near unto you; seek me diligently and ye shall find me; ask, and ye shall receive; knock, and it shall be opened unto you....Behold, that which you hear is as the voice of one crying in the wilderness­ in the wilderness, because you cannot see him­ my voice, because my voice is Spirit; my Spirit is truth; truth abideth and hath no end; and if it be in you it shall abound… Therefore, sanctify yourselves that your minds become single to God, and the days will come that you shall see him; for he will unveil his face unto you, and it shall be in his own due time, and in his own way, and according to his own will.”
     Doctrine and Covenants  88:63-68

WHEN the Savior shall appear we shall see him as he is
We shall see that he is a man like ourselves.
2 And that same sociality which exists among us here will exist among us there, only it will be coupled with eternal glory, which glory we do not now enjoy.
3 John 14:23—The appearing of the Father and the Son, in that verse, is a personal appearance; and the idea that the Father and the Son dwell in a man's heart is an old sectarian notion, and is false.”   Doctrine and Covenants 130:1-3 

“ VERILY, thus saith the Lord: It shall come to pass that every soul who forsaketh his sins and cometh unto me, and calleth on my name, and obeyeth my voice, and keepeth my commandments, shall see my face and know that I am.” 
    Doctrine and Covenants
93:1  (You have to forsake the sins that you like and enjoy.)

“And a commandment I give unto thee
—that thou shalt write for him; and the scriptures shall be given, even as they are in mine own bosom, to the salvation of mine own elect;
21 For they will hear my voice, and shall see me, and shall not be asleep, and shall abide the day of my coming; for they shall be purified, even as I am pure.”    
Doctrine and Covenants
35: 20-21         Your leaders are asleep, and have not seen him!

“Yea, I will appear unto my servants, and speak unto them with mine own voice, if my people will keep my commandments, and do not pollute this holy house.” 
Doctrine and Covenants
110: 8  
BUT his house has been polluted. No Priesthood CLICK HERE

“And inasmuch as my people
build a house unto me in the name of the Lord, and do not suffer any unclean thing to come into it, that it be not defiled, my glory shall rest upon it;
16 Yea, and my presence shall be there, for I will come into it, and all the pure in heart that shall come into it shall see God.
17 But if (IF) it be defiled I will not (not) come into it, and my glory shall not be there;
for I will
not come into unholy temples.”    Doctrine and Covenants 97: 15-17

“And this greater priesthood administereth the gospel and holdeth the key of the mysteries of the kingdom, even the key of the knowledge of God. (The kingdom, NOT the Church CLICK HERE

20 Therefore, in the ordinances thereof, the power of godliness is manifest.  (No-- LDS have the ordinances of Plural Marriage.)
21 And without the ordinances thereof, and the authority of the priesthood, the power of godliness is not manifest unto men in the flesh;      (See when the LDS lost the priesthood CLICK HERE)

For without this no man can see the face of God, even the Father, and live.
23 Now this Moses plainly taught to the children of Israel in the wilderness, and sought diligently to sanctify his people that they might behold the face of God;
24 But they hardened their hearts and could not endure his presence; therefore, the Lord in his wrath, for his anger was kindled against them, swore that they should not enter into his rest while in the wilderness, which rest is the fulness of his glory.”

of God comes. CLICK HERE           When ? CLICK HERE

And that I may visit them in the day of visitation,
when I shall unveil the face of my covering, to appoint the portion of the oppressor among hypocrites, where there is gnashing of teeth, if (if) they reject my servants and my testimony which I have revealed unto them.”  Doctrine and Covenants 124: 8 
My warnings have been rejected by Leaders as well as the people, therefore “wrath” is the result as promised by God.)                          Did you see When !  CLICK HERE

“And again, I will give unto you
a pattern in all things, that ye may not be deceived; for Satan is abroad in the land, and he goeth forth deceiving the nations—  (He will show us a pattern, he said.)

15 Wherefore he that prayeth, whose spirit is contrite, the same is accepted of me if he obey mine ordinances.  (The pattern!)
He that speaketh, whose spirit is contrite, whose language is meek and edifieth, the same is of God if he obey mine ordinances(No LDS Authorities are Plygs.)

     (So if you don’t follow the pattern, you don’t get the results.)
And again, he that trembleth under my power shall be made strong, and shall bring forth fruits of praise and wisdom, according to the revelations and truths which I have given you.
18 And again, he that is overcome and bringeth not forth fruits, even according to this pattern, is not of me.
19 Wherefore, by this pattern ye shall know the spirits in all cases under the whole heavens.
20 And the days have come; according to men's faith it shall be done unto them.”   Doctrine and Covenants 52: 14-20

“When a messenger comes saying he has a message from God, offer him your hand and request him to shake hands with you.
(The pattern.)

5 If he be an angel he will do so, and you will feel his hand.
6 If he be the spirit of a just man made perfect he will come in his glory; for that is the only way he can appear—
7 Ask him to shake hands with you, but he will not move, because it is contrary to the order of heaven for a just man to deceive; but he will still deliver his message.
8 If it be the devil as an angel of light, when you ask him to shake hands he will offer you his hand, and you will not feel anything; you may therefore detect him.
9 These are three grand keys whereby you may know whether any administration is from God.” Doctrine and Covenants 129:4-9 

“All the prophets had the Melchizedek Priesthood and were ordained by God himself.”  Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith =   TPJS 181     

(So how can anyone who has not kept all the ordinances, and has not seen the face of God, ever be ordained by God? Use your brain!) Read this Sixth Lecture.
We read in the Sixth Lecture on Faith what is required.

5. For a man to lay down his all, his character and reputation, his honor, and applause, his good name among men, his houses, his lands, his brothers and sisters, his wife and children, and even his own life also  --  counting all things but filth and dross for the excellency of the knowledge of Jesus Christ  --  requires more than mere belief or supposition that he is doing the will of God; but actual knowledge, realizing that, when those sufferings are ended, he will enter into eternal rest, and be a partaker of the glory of God.

6. For unless a person does know that he is walking according to the will of God, it would be offering an insult to the dignity of the Creator were he to say that he would be a partaker of His glory when he should be done with the things of this life.  But when he has this knowledge, and most assuredly knows that he is doing the will of God, his confidence can be equally strong that he will be a partaker of the glory of God.

7. Let us here observe, that a religion that does not require the sacrifice of all things never has power sufficient to produce the faith necessary unto life and salvation; for, from the first existence of man, the faith necessary unto the enjoyment of life and salvation never could be obtained without the sacrifice of all earthly things.  It was through this sacrifice, and this only, that God has ordained that men should enjoy eternal life; and it is through the medium of the sacrifice of all earthly things that men do actually know that they are doing the things that are well pleasing in the sight of God.  When a man has offered in sacrifice all that he has for the truth's sake, not even withholding his life, and believing before God that he has been called to make this sacrifice because he seeks to do his will, he does know, most assuredly, that God does and will accept his sacrifice and offering, and that he has not, nor will not seek his face in vain.  Under these circumstances, then, he can obtain the faith necessary for him to lay hold on eternal life.

8. It is in vain for persons to fancy to themselves that they are heirs with those, or can be heirs with them, who have offered their all in sacrifice, and by this means obtain faith in God and favor with him so as to obtain eternal life, unless they, in like manner, offer unto him the same sacrifice, and through that offering obtain the knowledge that they are accepted of him.”     Sixth Lecture on Faith Verses 5-8  In the Doctrine and Covenants in all editions up to the “1921” Edition when it was removed.

(Would you lay down your houses, thousands of acres of farms, wives, children, brothers, my reputation, honor, wealth, friends,
to get the promise from God? When all I would have to had done is to compromise the truth, and believe just like everyone else. And not be willing to obey the truth. More on Link # 6 CLICK HERE when I get it on the web.)  

Mormon Doctrine: Page 439   (The) Lectures On Faith
See DOCTRINE AND COVENANTS, FAITH, SCHOOL OF THE PROPHETS. “From 1835 to 1921 all editions of the Doctrine and Covenants contained some lesson material called the Lectures on Faith. These lectures, seven in number, were prepared by the Prophet for study in the school of the elders in Kirtland in 1834-1835, and also for publication in the Doctrine and Covenants. They were not themselves classed as revelations, but in them is to be found some of the best lesson material ever prepared on the Godhead; on the character, perfections, and attributes of God; on faith, miracles, and sacrifice. They can be studied with great profit by all gospel scholars.”(Doctrines of Salvation, vol. 2, pp. 303-304; vol. 3, p. 194.)
So why was some of the best ‘ever’ taken away?
“Out” of the Doctrine &Covenants? Answer : because some people think that they are smarter than God!     Or a man who has seen God!

“What constitutes the kingdom of God? Where there is a prophet, a priest, or a righteous man unto whom God gives His oracles, there is the kingdom of God; and where the oracles of God are not, there the kingdom of God is not. . .Whenever men can find out the will of God and find an administrator legally authorized from God, there is the kingdom of God; but where these are not, the kingdom of God is not.
 (What did he just say?)
All the ordinances, systems, and administrations on the earth are of
no use to the children of men, unless they are ordained and authorized of God; for nothing will save a man but a legal administrator; for none others will be acknowledged either by God or angels.”    (Joseph Smith, History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 7 Vols.  This ‘quote’ Volume 5:257, 259)

We can see what the Prophet Joseph Smith said:
"All Priesthood is Melchizedek but there are different portions or degrees of it.
That portion which brought Moses to speak with God
face to face was taken away; but that which brought the ministry of angels remained." The latter-day Seer then added this important detail: "All the prophets had the Melchizedek Priesthood and were ordained by God himself."  Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith  TPJS 180-181

fulness of the ordinances, is the fulness of the gospel. And it brings the fulness of the blessings of God. That a man can see God.

 "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.” TPJS 322
The 2nd. Anointing makes a man a king and priest.  And to get that ordinance, he has to have more than one woman sealed to him. He has to be polygamous.   

(I am giving many “Quotes” from Joseph Smith because he understood the doctrine that millions of hypocrites don’t understand. And would rather die than learn about. )

It is one thing to see the kingdom of God, and another thing to enter into it. We must have a change of heart to see the kingdom of God, and subscribe the articles of adoption to enter therein.” 
Joseph Smith, History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 7 Vols. This ‘quote’ from 6:58  CLICK HERE to see the Kingdom of God

Joseph Smith said: "If a man get
a fulness of the priesthood of God, he has to get it in the same way that Jesus Christ obtained it, and that was by keeping all the commandments and obeying all the ordinances of the house of the Lord."    TPJS 308

        Principles of the Gospel
Never Change
“It was the design of the councils of heaven before the world was, that the principles and laws of the priesthood should be predicated upon the gathering of the people in every age of the world. Jesus did everything to gather the people, and they would not be gathered, and He therefore
poured out curses upon them. Ordinances instituted in the heavens before the foundation of the world, in the priesthood, for the salvation of men, are not to be altered or changed. All must be saved on the same principles.”   (TPJS 308)

So how can a busted up Plyg in Parowan know what is going to happen? Well because:
Then knowledge through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is the grand key that unlocks the glories and mysteries of the kingdom of heaven.”    (TPJS 298)

Most people reading here on my web site don’t believe what Joseph Smith the Mormon Prophet said. Even the Mormons themselves don’t believe his “White Horse Vision” where he said: “The coming of the Messiah among this people will be so natural, that "only" those who see Him will know that He has come, but He will come and give His laws unto Zion, and minister unto His people.” Read that Vision CLICK HERE

The Keys of Priesthood
“Thus we behold the
keys of this Priesthood consisted in obtaining the voice of Jehovah that He talked with him [Noah] in a familiar and friendly manner, that He continued to him the keys, the covenants, the power and the glory, with which He blessed Adam at the beginning; and the offering of sacrifice, which also shall be continued at the last time; for all the ordinances and duties that ever have been required by the Priesthood, under the directions and commandments of the Almighty in any of the dispensations, shall all be had in the last dispensation.”         (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith  page 171) 

“1st key: Knowledge is the power of salvation. 2nd key: Make your calling and election sure. 3rd key: It is one thing to be on the mount and hear the excellent voice, etc., and another to hear the voice declare to you, You have a part and lot in that kingdom.”  (May 21, 1843.) —Documentary History of the Church 5:401-403.  (TPJS 306)  

“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. (TPJS 322  Refuse knowledge and be damned he said.)

(If you are too proud, and afraid of public opinion-You fall short of the goal.) You must be willing to obey all God has commanded, even if you have to stand all alone. Yea, stand alone, like the true prophets have.) CLICK HERE some important Doctrines from the Prophet.

The Israelites prayed that God would speak to Moses and not to them; in consequence of which he cursed them with a carnal law.  TPJS 322  

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.) —DHC 5:554-556.   TPJS  323

“Oh! I beseech you to go forward, go forward and make your calling and your election sure; and if any man preach any other Gospel than that which I have preached, he shall be cursed; and some of you who now hear me shall see it, and know that I testify the truth concerning them.”     TPJS 366    (NOW, If  you don’t profess to be a follower of Joseph Smith then you may have some excuse. And God may allow you to live awhile.
But if you are a real hypocrite then order your gravestone.)

“The Doctrine of Election. Peter exhorts us to make our calling and election sure.
This is the sealing power spoken of by Paul in other places.
“13. In whom ye also trusted, that after ye heard the word of truth, the Gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise,
“14. Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory, that we may be sealed up unto the day of redemption."—Ephesians, 1st chapter.
This principle ought in its proper place to be taught, for God hath not revealed anything to Joseph, but what He will make known unto the Twelve, and even the least Saint may know all things as fast as he is able to bear them, for the day must come when no man need say to his neighbor, Know ye the Lord; for all shall know Him (who remain alive) from the least to the greatest. How is this to be done? It is to be done by this sealing power, and the other Comforter spoken of, which will be manifest by revelation.”    TPJS 149  
(LDS are told that
IF they are true and faithful the day will come that they may become anointed as kings and queens in the kingdom of God. But it can’t happen when they don’t
obey every word from God and believe him, they can’t see him.)

“It will not be by sword or gun that this kingdom will roll on: the power of truth is such that all nations will be under the necessity of obeying the Gospel. The prediction is that army will be against army: it may be that the Saints will have to beat their ploughs into swords, for it will not do for men to sit down patiently and see their children destroyed.”
366)     (So will you fight for the USA?)

(You can’t even begin to count the millions of Mormons who do
not believe what Joseph Smith said or their own scriptures.   It’s no wonder that they don’t have true prophets.

O ye wicked and perverse and stiffnecked people, why have ye built up churches unto yourselves to get gainWhy have ye transfigured the holy word of God, that ye might bring damnation upon your souls?  Behold, look ye unto the revelations of God; for behold, the time cometh at that day when all these things must be fulfilled.”    Mormon 8:33

O ye pollutions, ye hypocrites, ye teachers, who sell yourselves for that which will canker, why have ye polluted the holy church of God?  Why are ye ashamed to take upon you the name of Christ?  Why do ye not think that greater is the value of an endless happiness than that misery which never dies—because of the praise of the world?”   Book of Mormon -- Mormon 8: 38   So Why did the President of the LDS Church say in 1982 CLICK HERE
