“Go to the land of the red rocks, and await the Indian Prophet.” —Joseph Smith
“And now I say unto you, that it is not revealed, and no man knoweth where the City (of Zion) shall be built, but it shall be given hereafter. Behold, I say unto you, that it shall be among the Lamanites.” —Original text of the Book of Commandments, precursor to the D&C (“Ezra Booth Letter,” Ohio Star Nov. 29, 1831)
In 1830, Ohio newspaper writer Eber D. Howe noted that Oliver Cowdery and his companions, who were sent by Joseph Smith, continued, “on their mission to the Indians (or Lamanites, as they term them) in the ‘far west,’ where they say a Prophet is to be raised up, in whom the tribes will believe.” (“The Book of Mormon,” The Painesville [Ohio] Telegraph, 30 Nov. 1830, pg. 3)
Jesus Christ is our Savior & Redeemer
First and foremost, the message I want to share is one of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. My utmost desire is to portray a correct image of this perfect man, which means a correct image of his words, doctrines and messengers. Jesus alone is worthy of our worship, and all other men—including prophets—are equally unworthy.
The commandment is, “Therefore, hold up your light that it may shine unto the world. Behold I am the light which ye shall hold up—that which ye have seen me do.” (3rd Nephi 18:24)
And under this head ye are made free, and there is no other head whereby ye can be made free. There is no other name given whereby salvation cometh; therefore, I would that ye should take upon you the name of Christ, all you that have entered into the covenant with God that ye should be obedient unto the end of your lives.
And they all cried with one voice, saying: Yea, we believe all the words which thou hast spoken unto us; and also, we know of their surety and truth [how?], because of the Spirit of the Lord Omnipotent, which has wrought a mighty change in us, or in our hearts, that we have no more disposition to do evil, but to do good continually.see Mosiah 5
Truth is Available to Those Who Seek It
By the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. Ask and ye shall receive. Seek and ye shall find. Knock and the Lord will open up unto you. EVERYONE that asketh receiveth, and to him that knocketh IT SHALL BE OPENED.
The opposite of this is to rely on the arm of flesh, to declare in your heart, “All is well. Yea, Zion prospereth!” All ye who await comfortably till the end of days, I warn you that your lamentation in the day of visitation, and of judgment, and of indignation will be severe: For the harvest is past, the summer is ended, and your soul is not saved!
Behold, we are surrounded by demons, yea, we are encircled about by the angels of him who hath sought to destroy our souls. Behold, our iniquities are great. O Lord, canst thou not turn away thine anger from us? And this shall be your language in those days. But behold, your days of probation are past; ye have procrastinated the day of your salvation until it is everlastingly too late, and your destruction is made sure…Helaman 13:37-38
Remember that in Lehi’s dream, the rod of iron which led to the tree of life, which fruit was pure white and most sweet, was the word of God—the scriptures. The worst thing that you can do is trust someone else’s interpretation of these records. Make no mistake, if you are giving another man, or group of men, this trust, you will find yourself condemned before the Lord on that great day of your judgment. You may find gospel discussion with others very rewarding, but in the end, “if ye wrest the scriptures, it will be to your own destruction.” (2nd Peter 3, Alma 13) Indeed, if you are pacified towards the scriptures and are in the habit of trusting other men, religions, schools of thought, philosophies, etc., you will go far astray. (Alma 41)
The Pharisees and Sadducees are infinite in today’s churches; the men and women who seek the praise of the world, and/or money, and/or the temptations of the flesh, and/or physical/spiritual authority, as they suppose, are everywhere. Remember, the Lord said that harlots enter the kingdom of God first.
What you and I are seeking is 1) the true points of the doctrine of Christ, and 2) this doctrine IN ITS FULLNESS. Anything short means that YOU (and/or I) will fall short. Your most precious time spent is time studying the scriptures to learn the true points of His doctrine AND line upon line, precept upon precept, arriving at a fullness.
To say that deceit prevails in today’s confused world—especially among Christians, and beliefs tied to Joseph Smith’s life—is to state the obvious, for each one of us can look beyond ourselves to observe the beliefs of others, only to notice that the spectrum of doctrines in which God’s children trusts and adheres to is far and wide—too many to count. And yet, how can two (or more) walk together unless they be agreed (Amos 3:3).
Today’s predominant church, the latter-day Saints (LDS), hold up the Book of Mormon for all to see, exclaiming it’s truthfulness, and proclaiming that this is what makes their faith different from all other faiths. But they do not teach from it. And their leaders’ leesh on it’s membership is so tight that church teachings are not allowed to go beyond the boundaries of rubber-stamped manuals produced and distributed by the church, even though in the church that Jesus Christ established in 3rd Nephi taught, “their meetings were conducted by the church after the manner of the workings of the Spirit, and by the power of the Holy Ghost; for as the power of the Holy Ghost led them whether to preach, or to exhort, or to pray, or to supplicate, or to sing, even so it was done.” —Moroni 6:9
In your study, I invite you to consider what the scripture say concerning:
- Who are the Gentiles, and who are the covenant seed, or house of Israel?
- What and when are the “times of the Gentiles” and “times of Israel?”
- Can a Gentile be adopted into the house of Israel when Israel has not been established, or recovered?
- Is the birthright tribe (among the twelve tribes of Israel) important? In what way?
- How can you identify secret combinations of our day?
- Who is the choice seer mentioned in 2nd Nephi 3?
- Who is “the Deliverer” mentioned in Romans 11?
- Who is “THE BRANCH” mentioned in Zechariah 3 and 6?
- Who is the marred servant mentioned in 3rd Nephi 21?
- Who is the one like unto Moses in D&C 103?
- Who is the One Mighty & Strong mentioned in D&C 85?
- What is this man’s role, or work that he is to do?
- Has the day of miracles ceased? Has the days of prophecy, speaking in tongues, and seeing angels ceased? If not, why do these things not happen (i.e. at baptisms) anymore?
- Is it a requirement to have one’s calling and election made sure in THIS LIFE?
True Points of the Doctrine of Christ
Our God is a God of truth. He is a God of detailed, elaborate and integrated principles. And yet his principles and doctrines are easy to understand. This doctrine, when discovered, is readily welcomed and cherished by those who spend their time and passion pursuing an understanding of it (the scriptures). These types of passionate truth-seekers are not deterred by the Christian masses who point to Christ, his death, and blood-payment for our sins as the “end-all” of everything a person needs to know, thinking they are excused of any other spiritual knowledge or pursuit. What a shock to them when, standing before God on the day of judgment, they realize that they never knew Jesus Christ at all!
The scriptures are full of prophets and other righteous men who labored greatly, pushing forward through the powerful winds of adversity, and enduring to the end. Many of these men and women have seen Christ and have had their calling and election made sure. I would ask, have you arrived at this point? If the answer is “no” then the invitation from the scriptures is to work out your salvation with fear and trembling before Him, to waste and wear out your lives in search of truth, with a willingness and even readiness to obey every word that proceedeth forth from the mouth of God.
For some, balance in their lives means a short prayer and a few daily passages, caring not to fully understand. Others’ definition of balance is to not let a spare moment pass without diligently pursuing their measure of creation, knowing that each moment of their probationary period is precious, and that time spent in any one of a million distractions is truly wasted. The little-adhered-to secret is to not be complacent in one’s pursuit of the face of Christ, but alas few qualify. Many are called, but few are chosen; and wide is the gate that leads to destruction, and many there be who go in thereat; because straight is the gate and narrow is the way that leads to eternal life, and few be there that find it.
The doctrine of Christ is all that really matters in our life’s pursuit, and yet He will only give us that which we are worthy to receive, and earnestly preparing to live by. If we are willing to receive, through obedience to what we have already been given, He is willing to impart!
For the remnant of the house of Israel:
…at that day shall the remnant of our [Lehi’s] seed know that they are of the house of Israel, and that they are the covenant people of the Lord; and then shall they know and come to the knowledge of their forefathers, and also to the knowledge of the gospel of their Redeemer, which was ministered unto their fathers by him; wherefore, they shall come to the knowledge of their Redeemer and the very points of his doctrine, that they may know how to come unto him and be saved.1st Nephi 15:14
For the Gentile, who has hope of being numbered with the house of Israel by adoption—by their blood literally changing to become the blood of Israel:
For thus it behooveth the Father that it [the fullness of the gospel] should come forth from the Gentiles [during the times of the Gentiles, Joseph Smith’s time], that he may show forth his power unto the Gentiles, for this cause that the Gentiles, if they will not harden their hearts, that they may repent and come unto me and be baptized in my name and know of the true points of my doctrine, that they may be numbered among my people, O house of Israel.3rd Nephi 21:6
The true points of Christ’s doctrine will not be imparted to the dependent, the willfully blinded, the unobserved, the apathetic, the proud, or the lazy! Neither is it to be imparted to those whose loyalty to the philosophies of any man or men are above loyalty to the whisperings of the Holy Ghost which one receives when studying His word. And when any given church adds to it’s membership, the more there is potential for entrapment since Gentiles look to such vain things as an indicator of truthfulness, considering this great, as described by Christ himself in Mark 10:42-45. Rightly, Moroni penned, after observing our day:
And I know that ye do walk in the pride of your hearts… and your churches, yea, even every one, have become polluted because of the pride of your hearts.—Mormon 8:36
The Fullness of the Doctrine of Christ
Our God is a God not only of truth, but fullness of truth, completeness, entirely, eternity, and infinite thoroughness. The scriptures express that he comprehends the dust of the earth. He simply knows all things. When one comes even a little bit aware of the incomprehendible amount of God’s knowledge, that person simultaneously has at least some awareness of His infinite strength AND freedom. Because God knows all things, he can also DO all things. And yet His work and glory is to bring us into his presence and to make us like him.
Only a fool would dismiss words of awareness (teachings) from the mouths of others without confirming their truth or untruth from the scriptures and the power of the Holy Ghost. One of the gifts of the Spirit is to believe on the words of others. Because this is a gift, it implies that the majority of the masses don’t share it, but readily dismiss doctrines that make them feel uncomfortable or that go against lifelong beliefs or customs. Thus, God scouts the land for the penitent.
And now behold, my brethren, what natural man is there that knoweth these things? I say unto you, there is none that knoweth these things, save it be the penitent. Yea, he that repenteth and exerciseth faith, and bringeth forth good works, and prayeth continually without ceasing—unto such it is given to know the mysteries of God; yea, unto such it shall be given to reveal things which never have been revealed;Alma 26:21-22
Remember that the Lord lets centuries roll on, without his intervention. Enough has been given for us, His children, to figure it out. If men will not read, pray, fast, yearn, desire, supplicate and sacrifice, then the Lord, and His fullness, remains separate from and eternally mysterious to all. At the same time Moroni asks us, “…has the day of miracles ceased? Or have angels ceased to appear unto the children of men? Or has he withheld the power of the Holy Ghost from them? Or will he, so long as time shall last, or the earth shall stand, or there shall be one man upon the face thereof to be saved? Behold I say unto you, Nay; for it is by faith that miracles are wrought; and it is by faith that angels appear and minister unto men…” —Moroni 7:35-37
That which is of God is light; and he that receiveth light, and continueth in God, receiveth more light; and that light groweth brighter and brighter until the perfect day.D&C 50:24
Satan is constantly trying to deceive us, with great success. We are foolish if we believe we are immune to his lies. If we are passive, if we are not diligent, if we are prideful, if we look down on others’ spiritual intellect, and if we dismiss what we read in the scriptures He will not impart unto us. Some don’t understand, and others won’t understand. When we come to passages that we do not understand, it would be well to remember the occasion of the baptism of Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery, who also lacked understanding:
Immediately on our coming up out of the water after we had been baptized, we experienced great and glorious blessings from our Heavenly Father. No sooner had I baptized Oliver Cowdery, than the Holy Ghost fell upon him, and he stood up and prophesied many things which should shortly come to pass. And again, so soon as I had been baptized by him, I also had the spirit of prophecy, when, standing up, I prophesied… We were filled with the Holy Ghost, and rejoiced in the God of our salvation. Our minds being now enlightened, we began to have the scriptures laid open to our understandings, and the true meaning and intention of their more mysterious passages revealed unto us in a manner which we never could attain to previously, nor ever before had thought of.Joseph Smith—History 1:73-74
It is worthy to note that before the Church was formally organized on April 6, 1830, David Whitmer, Oliver Cowdery, and others had been teaching and baptizing for nine months prior, converting about 2000 souls; and ALL baptized had the same spiritual encounters upon rising from the water as Oliver and Joseph.
When we recognize our own lack of understanding, and combine that with a strong desire to go to the Lord continually, in thought, in prayer, in following the example of our Lord and Savior, inevitably the Lord will give us our heart’s desires. He will not only give, but he will give liberally, and will not upbraid us in our desires. It would seem, then, that the only roadblock to exaltation, for each one of us, is the lack of desire. When we lack desire, we let go of the rod of iron (word of God), and end up inside the midst of darkness, wandering in strange roads.
It is my hope that from this website you will learn things you have never learned, or perhaps not even considered—that the Indian prophet’s life and mission are indeed written in holy writ, and that he is alive on the Earth today, and has written a book of scripture—the Book of the Remnant—a book that is sealed to most people because they don’t desire truth, nor understand the purpose and intent of the Book of Mormon.
I testify that I have learned many things in the scriptures that I absolutely know are not taught in any church, including all the churches which believe in the Book of Mormon, but which divided into the various religious sects and denominations after the death of Joseph Smith. I wish to give you but one piece of knowledge that I’ve learned:
It is said that after the death of Joseph Smith a group of people gathered to listen to Brigham Young speak, and as Brigham spoke he took upon himself the presence and voice of Joseph Smith—that he transfigured into Joseph Smith. Expressions from this incident were that, “clearly this was a miracle to show the members who the next prophet should be.”
I absolutely know, from the scriptures, that this is NOT how the Lord calls a prophet who speaks and acts on His behalf.
But this is the tip of the iceberg. As more and more LDS members get disenfranchised with their religion, and as LDS leader’s erroneous policies and public statements get more and more obvious, more and more people will break away from the confusion that is the leaven of the Pharisees (or, leaven of the Gentiles).
I testify that only the Lord’s prophecies are true. Although almighty God lets the centuries roll on when his children are thus blind leaders of the blind, yet all of His prophecies will be fulfilled, including Paul’s prophecy of a Deliverer who will save Zion and turn away ungodliness from Jacob. He will save Zion in the way other prophets have saved those who have hearkened to them, all things pointing to Christ whose precious blood saves all those of His brothers and sisters who’s time and effort is spent coming unto Him, tempering their pride, and believing in their heart that they, without Him, are less than the dust of the earth.
Do not say: O God, I thank thee that we are better than our brethren; but rather say: O Lord, forgive my unworthiness, and remember my brethren in mercy—yea, acknowledge your unworthiness before God at all times.Alma 38:14
My invitation to you is to listen to this man. He is an Indian Prophet. But before you listen to him, you must know something of who he is, by being taught—by feeling, as I have felt, that witness of power which only comes from the Holy Ghost whom the Lord sheds forth unto the penitent. Otherwise, should you reject this invitation, you will stand condemned, and it would have been better if you had not even read or known any of this.
