The Parable of The Tares

The Parable of The Tares--Down Fall of Babylon/The Children of the Wicked

The Parable
“Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man who sowed good seed in the field; but while he slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the blade sprang up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? Whence then hath it tares? He said unto them an enemy hath done this. And the servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the time of harvest, I will say unto the reapers, Gather ye together first the wheat into my barn; and the tares are bound in bundles to be burned.” (I V Matthew 13: 22-29)
Jesus explains the parable to His disciples
“Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house. And his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man, The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked. The enemy that sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the world, or the destruction of the wicked. The reapers are the angels or the messengers sent of heaven.
As, therefore, the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so shall it be in the end of this world, or the destruction of the wicked. For in that day, before the Son of Man shall come, he shall send forth his angels and messengers of heaven. And they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity, and shall cast them out among the wicked; and there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. For the world shall be burned with fire. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun, in the kingdom of their Father. Who has ears to hear let him hear.” (IV Matthew 13: 35-45) This is the fall of Babylon, the great/The fall of the Children of the wicked-
Good and evil grow side by side in this present world.
There are people who have been taught-- “There is no Satan and they believe the lie. There are people who say “Adam and Eve are not real people--The story of Adam and Eve is allegorical.
Caption--- (I V Genesis 3:) Rebellion of Satan---Man’s agency, temptation and fall. “And I, the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, That Satan whom thou hast commanded in the name of mine Only Begotten, is the same which was from the beginning; And he came unto me saying, Behold I, send me, I will be thy Son, and I will redeem all mankind that one soul shall not be lost, and surely I will do it; wherefore give me thine honor.
But behold, my Beloved Son, which was my beloved and chosen from the beginning, said, unto me: Father, thy will be done [save those that will--no force] the glory be thine for ever.
Wherefore, because that Satan rebelled against me, and sought to destroy the agency of man, which I, the Lord had given him; and also that I should give unto him mine own power; by the power of my Only Begotten I caused that he should be cast down; and he became Satan.
Yea even the devil, the father of all lies, to deceive, and to blind men, and to lead them captive at his will, even as many as would not hearken unto my voice.” (I V-- Inspired Version of the Bible Genesis 3: 1-5)
(“And these are the words which I spake unto my servant Moses. And they are true even as I will. And I have spoken them unto you. See thou show them unto no man, until I command you, except they that believe.)” Amen. (IV Genesis 3: 32-33)
We are told here that we are to teach these things only to believers (those who have been taught and yes, even to those who have since turned their backs on God‘s word and have apostatized: “The kingdom of the devil must shake and they which belong to it must be stirred up to repentance” lest ETC.” (11 Nephi 12: 23-24)
“This gospel of the Kingdom,” (KJ Matthew 24:14) God began to restore, “This gospel of the kingdom” to a young lad, named Joseph Smith, Jr. when he was but in his teens. God worked with Joseph through an angel. And on April 6, 1830 the Restored Church of Jesus Christ was officially restored and organized through His prophet, Joseph Smith Jr. Joseph was told to name the church, “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.”
At the early death of Joseph Smith and his brother, Hyrum in 1844, the true church was without a prophet until 1860.
Joseph was being held at the Carthage Jail in Liberty, MO. Emma, Joseph’s wife, had taken their 10 year son Joseph III, with her when she went to see Joseph. While there, Joseph ordained his designated son to take his place.
In 1860 Joseph III accepted the call and he became the Prophet; the church was reorganized at that time. Since then the name of Christ’s Restored Church has been “The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints” known as [RLDS.]
“Sons and daughters born to Adam--[Before the birth of Cain] Offering of Sacrifices--Redemption declared---Satan estranges man from God.”
Caption (Inspired Version--Genesis 4)
“And Adam and Eve blessed the name of God; and they made all things known to their sons and daughters. And Satan came among them, saying I am the son of God, and he commanded them saying, Believe it not. And they believed it not; and they loved Satan more than God. And men began from that time forth to be carnal, sensual and devilish.” (IV Genesis 4: 12-13)
’Satan estranges man from God---Birth of Cain-- Abel---Secret combinations---Abel slain, Cain cursed---secret revealed by Lamech’s wives---the earth cursed.’ Caption (IV Genesis 5)
Birth of Cain and Abel
“And Adam knew Eve his wife and she conceived and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord ; wherefore he may not reject his words. But, behold, also Cain hearkened not, saying, who is the Lord that I should know him? And she again conceived and bare his brother Abel. And Abel harkened unto the voice of the Lord. And Abel was a keeper of the sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
And Cain loved Satan more than God. And Satan commanded him, saying, Make an offering unto the Lord. And in the process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering to the Lord.
And Abel, he also brought, of the firstlings of his flock, and of the fat thereof; and the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering, but unto Cain, and his offering, he had not respect.
Now Satan knew this and it pleased him. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou worth? Why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well thou shall be accepted, and if thou doeth not well sin lieth at the door; and Satan desireth to have thee, and except thou shall hearken unto my commandments, I will deliver thee up, and it shall be unto thee according to his desires; And Cain was wroth, and he listened not any more to the voice of the Lord, neither to his brother Abel, who walked in holiness before the Lord.” (IV Genesis 5: 4-11 in part) (There is much more in this chapter about Cain, Satan, and secret combinations.)
“And it came to pass, that Cain took one of his brother’s daughters to wife. and they loved Satan more than God.” (IV Genesis 5: 13)
Before I read this from the Inspired Version of the Bible, I had many questions: Such as why did God reject Cain and his offering and where did Cain get his wife?
Adam and Eve were very prolific and there must have been quite a population before Eve bare Abel, a man who harkened unto the voice of the Lord.
An angel to Nephi,
Book of Mormon---600-592 B. C. “And he said to me, Behold, there are save two churches only: the one is the church of the Lamb of God and the other is the church of the devil.” (I Nephi 3: 220)
“For the kingdom of the devil must shake
and they which belong to it must be stirred up to repentance, or the devil will grasp them with his everlasting chains, and they will be stirred to angry and perish.” (11 Nephi 12: 23-24)
--”For the son dishonored the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house” (Micah 6:7 & Luke 12: 60-62.)
”Sundry instructions to the disciples---Sin against the Holy Ghost---The foolish rich man--Christ’s different appearing.” Caption (I V----Luke 12:)
Why is this happening in the end times? It is because Satan and his co-workers know their time is very short and they are desperate not to be found out lest they lose their power over the righteous.
Jesus speaks of discerning this time (the time in which the wicked lose their power)---”O hypocrites! Ye can discern the face of the sky, and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time? (IV Luke 12: 65)
Discern
----between those who are righteous and those who are wicked--
“And then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.” (Malachi 3: 18, please read the entire chapter) “That I may proceed to bring to pass my act, my strange act, and perform my work, my strange work. That men may discern between the righteous and the wicked saith your God.” (D&C 98: 12,e)
“For the Lord shall rise up in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.” (Isaiah 28: 21,)
“And by this you may know they are under the bondage of sin, because they come not unto me; for whoso cometh not unto me are under the bondage of sin;
And who receiveth not my voice is not acquainted with my voice and is not of me, and by this you may know the righteous from the wicked, and that the whole world groaneth under sin and bondage even now.” (modern day revelation--D&C 83: 7, g, h, i)
Followers of the Lamb and followers of the beast
Sharing-- Seventy George Njeim’s comments on Revelation 13:
“The Mark of the Beast,” you may find this on page139 in his book,
“Insights Into The Book Of Revelation” As Illuminated by the Book of Mormon--
“For the purpose of identification, John uses marks, seals, names. The people of God were “sealed” (7: 3-8) and as we shall see in the following chapter, they had the name of their father on their forehead. (14: 1). This beast is marked and his followers (14: 9) also carry the same mark on their foreheads. This marking is a distinguishing feature and a necessary one. It separates the followers of the Lamb from the followers of the beast.
Some have looked for a visible mark and came out with the conclusion that the sign of the cross made by Catholics or Orthodox in their worship is the mark. That is unthinkable.
If the mark is a visible one on the followers of the beast, what is the visible name written on the foreheads of those who follow the Lamb? No answer has been ventured. No, this mark is a spiritual one and is easily discernable in the demeanor of the beast and not in what he says or claims. As a tutor of western civilization the mark is best seen in the deportment [behavior, conduct, deposition] of his graduates.”
Njeim continues his comments in chapter13---very interesting--”The Number of the Beast” and ETC.
Division of the righteous and the wicked
: “Suppose ye I come to bring peace on earth? I tell ye nay; but rather division.” [Division between those who serve Christ and those who serve Satan] (Luke 12: 60,)
“And again, verily I say unto you, O inhabitants of the earth , I, the Lord, am willing to make these things known unto all flesh, for I am no respecter of persons, and will that all men shall know that the day speedily cometh---the hour is not yet---(1831)--but nigh at hand---when peace shall be taken from the earth, and the devil shall have power over his own dominion; and also the Lord shall have power over his saints/(Christians), and shall reign in their *midst, and shall come down in judgment upon *Idumea, or the world.” (Modern day scripture---Doctrines and Covenants 1: 6) [Who can deny World War 111 is upon us?]
Notice the great tribulation begins on the wicked, and those of the world, at the beginning of World War111 and the climatic sign of our Lord and Savior’s return in His Glory--(KJV-Matthew 24:14--Inspired Version 24: 32) “And again This Gospel of the Kingdom” shall be preached in all the world, for a witness unto all nations, and then shall the end come or the destruction of the wicked.”
The three standard books, “Inspired Version of the Bible, The Book of Mormon, and the Doctrine and Covenants, of The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints/Christians, will tell you it is from The City of Zion Our Ark for today {Center Place Independence, MO] that shall go into all the world preaching The gospel of Jesus Christ Restored/This gospel of the kingdom-- during the great tribulation these witnesses shall receive mighty power from God.
I understand it is now that we are able to discern between the righteous and the wicked (Malachi 3: 18) that Satan and his children/the Tares will lose their power over godly people. And this is when Jesus Christ will reign in the *midst of His saints/Christians and this world will be wonderful and more wonderful when Jesus returns in His Glory and sets up His kingdom here on earth and we will reign with Him personally for one thousand years.
“So there was a division of the people because of him,” [Jesus.] (John 7: 43)
“There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.” (John 10:19,)
 Can we even image how wonderful life will be without the influence of Satan and his workers?
“and ye shall know that I an in the midst of Israel, [every person who makes covenant with Jesus Christ becomes a child of Abraham and unless those who are direct linage of Jacob/Israel make covenant with Christ they are not counted children of Abraham] ETC. And it shall come to pass afterward I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and daughters shall prophecy, and your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions; And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my Spirit.
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be delivered; for out of mount Zion [Zion here in America] and Jerusalem {Zion in Jerusalem] shall be deliverance, as the Lord has said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.” (IV-Joel 2: 27, 28, 29, 32)

Kickstarter campaign for my Messiah-Bride allegory

---- Forwarded message ----
From: Lynne Erickson-Valle
contact@lynneericksonvalle.com

Kickstarter campaign for my Messiah-Bride allegory

In the same way Jesus taught with parables, modern-day storytellers reach out to the world with a message.

My inspirational romance novel, The Double Rose, is allegory about the epoch love story of the Messiah and His bride. I published it as an independent author and received many wonderful reviews.

If the book was so well received, than why did I launch a Kickstarter campaign to professionally revise this novel? Because there are many empty souls who are hungering for something. The only thing that will ever be able to satisfy them is God Himself - they need to embrace a relationship with their Beloved. The goal of this Kickstarter campaign is to get the message of God's unfailing love into the hearts of as many people as possible. I believe a professional team, backed by readers like you, can take The Double Rose and its message to a new level.

Please follow this link and watch my video. It tells the story behind the story about how the concept for this novel came to me.

NOVEMBER, 2013.

Around and About the Centre Place
by High Priest Paul Gage Independence, MO

As America moves into November, it is time for us to stop and reflect upon all of God's most gracious and bounteous blessings. Blessings that we could never earn, deserve, or buy. He grants them just because He loves all His creation so very much. We will celebrate "Thanksgiving" on November 28th. For many years it has been set on the fourth Thursday of November. It was established as a reminder of how God blessed those we call the "Pilgrims" who came to America around 1620 and helped settle the USA. I will be in charge of the service at Waldo Avenue Restoration Branch on the Sunday before Thanksgiving and plan to honor our Heavenly Father in our worship to the best of our abilities. We would appreciate your prayers for our nation and for the church in the Center Place.

Many good things are happening around the Independence area, as well as in Missouri and the US. There is a lot of interaction between branches and Saints worshiping together. Many branches send out ministry to smaller branches and groups all across the country. I have had the opportunity to visit with Saints in eight states over the last six months and have found the love of God among them all as they continue in their efforts to serve the Lord where He has placed them. I know, also, that the wonderful Saints in Australia are doing the same and what a thrill it is to know that we are all serving our God and trying to help bring forth His kingdom upon the earth.

The Conference of Restoration Elders (CRE) has completed a Spirit filled experience at Kirtland in September and is preparing for another priesthood gathering in the Center Place January 18, 2014. In addition to these two events, there will be a "Gathering of All Saints" at Waldo Avenue RB on Saturday,
April 5, 2014 which will be followed by a Sacrament of the Lord's Supper on Sunday, April 6, 2014.

The missionary boards, under the CRE, are all active and sending forth the gospel in the parts of the world they serve. As you know, Bob and Sheila Schrunk are currently in Australia until mid-December and we anticipate hearing many wonderful testimonies from them and the Saints of Australia. Richard Neill and

Jack Hagensen will be going, again, to the Mindanao region of the Philippines in November. We are sure that Elders Jun and Bernardo, from Mindanao were able to go to the Luzon region and be with Murray and Delma for a while.

Older youth and college age students meet in Independence, MO, at Living Hope RB each Tuesday night for fellowship and worship. There is a similar group that meets on the campus in Warrensburg, MO on Thursday nights. There were two youth retreats in October and there will be two more in November at the Odessa Hills Campgrounds near Odessa, MO.

Several branches also have branch retreats and enjoy the time together with the Saints. The branches at Adrian, MO and Lexington, MO, and Waldo Avenue, Independence, MO are three that have had branch retreats this year.

All the councils of the CRE continue to be actively engaged in the work of the Lord. The Women’s Council sponsored a very successful retreat in September. The Education Council hosted a workshop/seminar in October to introduce their new "Jesus Curriculum" for Bible schools and Sunday schools.

As you may know, there are many resources for materials and ministry around the Centre Place and are available to the Saints around the world. There are a number of magazines that are published: "Tidings of Zion" by the CRE; "Witness" Magazine by the Book of Mormon Foundation; "Gylph Notes" by the Pre-Columbian Studies Institute (PSI); "Restoration Voice" by Cumorah Books, Inc. (Paul Ludy); "Quetzal Codex" by the Quetzal Archaeology Center for Mesoamerican Research; and "Vision Magazine" by Price Publishing Co. Anyone desiring more information about any of these can contact me at
pauljg_64055@yahoo.com or contact the CRE at eldersconference.org. We hope to have the next Tidings of Zion magazine in the mail by November 25, 2013. We would appreciate some testimonies from Australia for the next issue.

A Parable of the Kingdom of God - a dream given to Elder Dan Schwartz, USA. March 30, 2001

****************

This dream was unique from any other dream that I have ever had. Though I could see the images of the dream, it was presented as if I were being told a story. I awoke immediately upon the conclusion of the dream, and started wondering why I would have such a dream. As I pondered on the dream, the Holy Spirit began presenting the interpretation to me.

The Dream

I could see a young woman, and I was aware that she was several months pregnant. It was well past the time when her pregnancy should be showing, but there was no visible evidence and no one could tell that she was pregnant.

Though she wanted the baby, she seemed deeply concerned about each pound of weight she gained and concerned that the pregnancy would cause her to change her lifestyle. She didn’t want the pregnancy to interfere with the things that she liked to do. As the weeks went by, she became more and more depressed, and she didn’t know why.

One weekend she decided to go on a camping trip with some friends, despite the advice from her family and her doctor that she should stay home and nurture the baby. Throughout the weekend she felt as though she were being watched and followed by a child. She would catch fleeting glimpses of the child through the trees of the woods, but could never get clear sight of the child. She sensed that this child was carrying a great burden, and she wondered how one so young could be so burdened.

Finally, at the close of the weekend, she was able to see this child that had been following her. As the child stepped out from behind the trees, she could see that he was a perfect, beautiful little boy. Then her understanding was opened up, and she realized that this little boy was the child growing within her and that the burden he was carrying was the burden of trying to grow and develop despite the lack of care and nourishment that his mother was giving him. The woman also realized that the cause of her depression was the great contradiction that she was living with - the contradiction of wanting the baby but not wanting to make the sacrifices to nurture the child and endure the pain of delivery.

With this vision of her little boy in her mind, the young woman returned home fully dedicated to taking care of herself and providing for the needs of her unborn child.

The Interpretation

The woman is the church, and the child is the Kingdom of God. It is well past the time when the church should be showing visible signs of the growing Kingdom, but from all outward appearances no one can tell that the Kingdom is present.

Just as the woman was concerned about the effect the pregnancy would have on her lifestyle, so are we, the church, concerned about the effect the Kingdom would have on our lifestyle. We want the Kingdom of God in our lives, but we are unwilling to do the things necessary to nurture its growth within us, and even at times ashamed that it should be visible to others.

As we go about our daily lives, we catch glimpses of what the Kingdom of God is, but we never gain a full vision of it. The Kingdom of God is under a burden of sorts, as it desires to grow and develop within each one of us, but it is receiving only scant nourishment from most of us. The church as a whole is under a sort of malaise as we labor with our own great contradiction, the contradiction of wanting the Kingdom but not wanting to make the sacrifices and the changes in lifestyle that would allow the Kingdom of God to grow and develop within us.

Precious Gifts from God. submitted by Sr. Janice Kerswell, Kingston Branch, Queensland.

Our grand children are precious gifts from God. We have 15 that we love dearly. We were taking our 6 year old granddaughter Elsie to her sports day and you have to walk up very sloped grounds. I was on new medication and my head started to spin and I thought I would fall. Elsie, who is a real little tomboy, put her little arms around me and said “just take baby steps, grandma”.

The next day as I was walking her to her classroom, she put her arms around me and said “Grandma, if you feel you are going to fall, fall on me”. I was actually fine that day and said “Darling, I would squish you if I fell on you”.

She said that was o.k. and I smiled and thought, no wonder God says we should become as little children. Their love is so pure and genuine.

****************

This month Elder Murray and Sr. Delma Broughton left us again for their work in the Philippines. We miss them very much. Regular services have been continued; also Wednesday class and morning refreshments after church.

Sermons have centered on the life and ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ. I was taught by my mentor when newly ordained that to do this was one of the best ways to maintain spirituality, remembering that He came to die and rise for us.

We have centered our doctrines on the amazing and wonderful love of God; the amazing and wonderful words of Christ (sermon on the mount); and the amazing and wonderful acts of Christ (cleansing of the temple, calming the storm, and the raising of Lazarus.

Living in a small community, it is becoming more difficult to withstand the movements of people in desecrating the Sabbath. One Sunday recently, a car exhibition was held which attracted ten thousand. We had just ten at Divine worship. No wonder we read “When He comes, shall we find faith on the earth”.

The transformation of the Kelvin View Hall for Sunday worship does a great deal for us as when one enters, one of the helps to worship states- THIS IS NONE OTHER THAN THE HOUSE OF GOD AND THIS IS THE GATE OF HEAVEN. We send our saintly greetings to the few faithful scattered saints throughout this vast land. We are looking forward to the next visit of representatives from the USA (Joseph’ land).

Tamworth News submitted by Sr. Bev Wilkinson

On Sunday 22nd September Elder Peter spoke on "Reward", reading from Section 58 of D&C 6e " and inasmuch as men do good, they shall in no wise lose their reward".

Elder Danny Archer gave the Sermon on Sunday 29th speaking on the Holy Spirit moving throughout the world. He said it is only the Spirit of the Lord who can stop people hating each other, He said "The Restored Gospel is now being taken to many countries and to many different people."

Bob, Helen and I welcomed Elder Bob and Sr. Sheila Schrunk at the Tamworth Airport on Thursday 17th October at 1:30 pm. It was so good to meet them after their delayed flight in Bangkok.

Deacon Roy and Sr. Daphne Schubert traveled to Tumut on Thursday 17th to attend their grandson's Wedding on Saturday 19th October. On Thursday evening Elder Bob and Sr. Sheila, Bob and Bev Wilkinson and Elder Peter and Sr. Helen Archer enjoyed a dinner to welcome Bob and Sheila to Australia for their two month Missionary stay. Elders Peter, Danny, Sr. Helen and Br. David Archer traveled to Tumut on Friday 18th to also attend Bro. Christopher Schubert's Wedding to Michelle David.

On Sunday 20th spoke of the many testimonies and experiences on their missionary trip to Nepal. It was wonderful to hear of the Holy Spirit moving amongst our brethren in that country.

Birthdays for November.

David Archer 13th.

Newcastle News submitted by Sr. Gianna Loyd.

We have had a busy September; Kelly and I have traveled to Canberra for a few days to a rail convention and to visit the spring Floriade. As usual I was not disappointed. The beautiful array of flowers, the tulips of all different colours, the daffodils etc. were just fabulous. October has been a devastating month for some Australians, who have lost their homes to the recent bush fires. There were some fires close to us, luckily where we live on a hill is ok. From our back deck we could see the billowy smoke & black ash everywhere.

Further away in the Blue Mountains, at least 200 homes were lost. As I was praying one morning the Lord gave me this scripture from Isaiah 61:3 “To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified”. Amen. Bye for now. Many blessings to all the Saints in Australia & abroad. Till next time.

A special invitation is extended to all American Restoration Saints who have visited and ministered in Australia over the years, to say hello, and send Christmas Greetings to be included in the December issue.

Please include in your prayers the following people who are in need of a blessing in health.

Diagnosis of Jessica Enix condition

The latest from Collene on Jessica's condition.

Collene Morris Enix
So we finally have a diagnosis for Jessica explaining all her symptoms. She has POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome). It's a condition that was caused from the mono she had and it causes the heart to beat extra hard upon standing and blood cannot circulate properly, causing all these symptoms she's been experiencing. No cure, but can be treated with meds to help control the symptoms.

Free Branson Timeshare

I have a timeshare at a Branson resort that I would love to give to someone who can afford the maintenance fees and enjoy its use.

It is located at the Grand Regency at Thousand Hills, but it can be traded for time at hundreds (thousands?) of other locations.

Your initial cost is the fees to write and record the deed and transfer ownership with the management company. Maintenance fees are about $500.00 every other year.

If interested, please e-mail or phone.

Thanks,

The Parable of The Tares

The Parable of The Tares--Down Fall of Babylon/The Children of the Wicked

The Parable
“Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man who sowed good seed in the field; but while he slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the blade sprang up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? Whence then hath it tares? He said unto them an enemy hath done this. And the servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the time of harvest, I will say unto the reapers, Gather ye together first the wheat into my barn; and the tares are bound in bundles to be burned.” (I V Matthew 13: 22-29)
Jesus explains the parable to His disciples
“Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house. And his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man, The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked. The enemy that sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the world, or the destruction of the wicked. The reapers are the angels or the messengers sent of heaven.
As, therefore, the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so shall it be in the end of this world, or the destruction of the wicked. For in that day, before the Son of Man shall come, he shall send forth his angels and messengers of heaven. And they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity, and shall cast them out among the wicked; and there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. For the world shall be burned with fire. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun, in the kingdom of their Father. Who has ears to hear let him hear.” (IV Matthew 13: 35-45) This is the fall of Babylon, the great/The fall of the Children of the wicked-
Good and evil grow side by side in this present world.
There are people who have been taught-- “There is no Satan and they believe the lie. There are people who say “Adam and Eve are not real people--The story of Adam and Eve is allegorical.
Caption--- (I V Genesis 3:) Rebellion of Satan---Man’s agency, temptation and fall. “And I, the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, That Satan whom thou hast commanded in the name of mine Only Begotten, is the same which was from the beginning; And he came unto me saying, Behold I, send me, I will be thy Son, and I will redeem all mankind that one soul shall not be lost, and surely I will do it; wherefore give me thine honor.
But behold, my Beloved Son, which was my beloved and chosen from the beginning, said, unto me: Father, thy will be done [save those that will--no force] the glory be thine for ever.
Wherefore, because that Satan rebelled against me, and sought to destroy the agency of man, which I, the Lord had given him; and also that I should give unto him mine own power; by the power of my Only Begotten I caused that he should be cast down; and he became Satan.
Yea even the devil, the father of all lies, to deceive, and to blind men, and to lead them captive at his will, even as many as would not hearken unto my voice.” (I V-- Inspired Version of the Bible Genesis 3: 1-5)
(“And these are the words which I spake unto my servant Moses. And they are true even as I will. And I have spoken them unto you. See thou show them unto no man, until I command you, except they that believe.)” Amen. (IV Genesis 3: 32-33)
We are told here that we are to teach these things only to believers (those who have been taught and yes, even to those who have since turned their backs on God‘s word and have apostatized: “The kingdom of the devil must shake and they which belong to it must be stirred up to repentance” lest ETC.” (11 Nephi 12: 23-24)
“This gospel of the Kingdom,” (KJ Matthew 24:14) God began to restore, “This gospel of the kingdom” to a young lad, named Joseph Smith, Jr. when he was but in his teens. God worked with Joseph through an angel. And on April 6, 1830 the Restored Church of Jesus Christ was officially restored and organized through His prophet, Joseph Smith Jr. Joseph was told to name the church, “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.”
At the early death of Joseph Smith and his brother, Hyrum in 1844, the true church was without a prophet until 1860.
Joseph was being held at the Carthage Jail in Liberty, MO. Emma, Joseph’s wife, had taken their 10 year son Joseph III, with her when she went to see Joseph. While there, Joseph ordained his designated son to take his place.
In 1860 Joseph III accepted the call and he became the Prophet; the church was reorganized at that time. Since then the name of Christ’s Restored Church has been “The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints” known as [RLDS.]
“Sons and daughters born to Adam--[Before the birth of Cain] Offering of Sacrifices--Redemption declared---Satan estranges man from God.”
Caption (Inspired Version--Genesis 4)
“And Adam and Eve blessed the name of God; and they made all things known to their sons and daughters. And Satan came among them, saying I am the son of God, and he commanded them saying, Believe it not. And they believed it not; and they loved Satan more than God. And men began from that time forth to be carnal, sensual and devilish.” (IV Genesis 4: 12-13)
’Satan estranges man from God---Birth of Cain-- Abel---Secret combinations---Abel slain, Cain cursed---secret revealed by Lamech’s wives---the earth cursed.’ Caption (IV Genesis 5)
Birth of Cain and Abel
“And Adam knew Eve his wife and she conceived and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord ; wherefore he may not reject his words. But, behold, also Cain hearkened not, saying, who is the Lord that I should know him? And she again conceived and bare his brother Abel. And Abel harkened unto the voice of the Lord. And Abel was a keeper of the sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
And Cain loved Satan more than God. And Satan commanded him, saying, Make an offering unto the Lord. And in the process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering to the Lord.
And Abel, he also brought, of the firstlings of his flock, and of the fat thereof; and the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering, but unto Cain, and his offering, he had not respect.
Now Satan knew this and it pleased him. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou worth? Why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well thou shall be accepted, and if thou doeth not well sin lieth at the door; and Satan desireth to have thee, and except thou shall hearken unto my commandments, I will deliver thee up, and it shall be unto thee according to his desires; And Cain was wroth, and he listened not any more to the voice of the Lord, neither to his brother Abel, who walked in holiness before the Lord.” (IV Genesis 5: 4-11 in part) (There is much more in this chapter about Cain, Satan, and secret combinations.)
“And it came to pass, that Cain took one of his brother’s daughters to wife. and they loved Satan more than God.” (IV Genesis 5: 13)
Before I read this from the Inspired Version of the Bible, I had many questions: Such as why did God reject Cain and his offering and where did Cain get his wife?
Adam and Eve were very prolific and there must have been quite a population before Eve bare Abel, a man who harkened unto the voice of the Lord.
An angel to Nephi,
Book of Mormon---600-592 B. C. “And he said to me, Behold, there are save two churches only: the one is the church of the Lamb of God and the other is the church of the devil.” (I Nephi 3: 220)
“For the kingdom of the devil must shake
and they which belong to it must be stirred up to repentance, or the devil will grasp them with his everlasting chains, and they will be stirred to angry and perish.” (11 Nephi 12: 23-24)
--”For the son dishonored the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house” (Micah 6:7 & Luke 12: 60-62.)
”Sundry instructions to the disciples---Sin against the Holy Ghost---The foolish rich man--Christ’s different appearing.” Caption (I V----Luke 12:)
Why is this happening in the end times? It is because Satan and his co-workers know their time is very short and they are desperate not to be found out lest they lose their power over the righteous.
Jesus speaks of discerning this time (the time in which the wicked lose their power)---”O hypocrites! Ye can discern the face of the sky, and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time? (IV Luke 12: 65)
Discern
----between those who are righteous and those who are wicked--
“And then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.” (Malachi 3: 18, please read the entire chapter) “That I may proceed to bring to pass my act, my strange act, and perform my work, my strange work. That men may discern between the righteous and the wicked saith your God.” (D&C 98: 12,e)
“For the Lord shall rise up in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.” (Isaiah 28: 21,)
“And by this you may know they are under the bondage of sin, because they come not unto me; for whoso cometh not unto me are under the bondage of sin;
And who receiveth not my voice is not acquainted with my voice and is not of me, and by this you may know the righteous from the wicked, and that the whole world groaneth under sin and bondage even now.” (modern day revelation--D&C 83: 7, g, h, i)
Followers of the Lamb and followers of the beast
Sharing-- Seventy George Njeim’s comments on Revelation 13:
“The Mark of the Beast,” you may find this on page139 in his book,
“Insights Into The Book Of Revelation” As Illuminated by the Book of Mormon--
“For the purpose of identification, John uses marks, seals, names. The people of God were “sealed” (7: 3-8) and as we shall see in the following chapter, they had the name of their father on their forehead. (14: 1). This beast is marked and his followers (14: 9) also carry the same mark on their foreheads. This marking is a distinguishing feature and a necessary one. It separates the followers of the Lamb from the followers of the beast.
Some have looked for a visible mark and came out with the conclusion that the sign of the cross made by Catholics or Orthodox in their worship is the mark. That is unthinkable.
If the mark is a visible one on the followers of the beast, what is the visible name written on the foreheads of those who follow the Lamb? No answer has been ventured. No, this mark is a spiritual one and is easily discernable in the demeanor of the beast and not in what he says or claims. As a tutor of western civilization the mark is best seen in the deportment [behavior, conduct, deposition] of his graduates.”
Njeim continues his comments in chapter13---very interesting--”The Number of the Beast” and ETC.
Division of the righteous and the wicked
: “Suppose ye I come to bring peace on earth? I tell ye nay; but rather division.” [Division between those who serve Christ and those who serve Satan] (Luke 12: 60,)
“And again, verily I say unto you, O inhabitants of the earth , I, the Lord, am willing to make these things known unto all flesh, for I am no respecter of persons, and will that all men shall know that the day speedily cometh---the hour is not yet---(1831)--but nigh at hand---when peace shall be taken from the earth, and the devil shall have power over his own dominion; and also the Lord shall have power over his saints/(Christians), and shall reign in their *midst, and shall come down in judgment upon *Idumea, or the world.” (Modern day scripture---Doctrines and Covenants 1: 6) [Who can deny World War 111 is upon us?]
Notice the great tribulation begins on the wicked, and those of the world, at the beginning of World War111 and the climatic sign of our Lord and Savior’s return in His Glory--(KJV-Matthew 24:14--Inspired Version 24: 32) “And again This Gospel of the Kingdom” shall be preached in all the world, for a witness unto all nations, and then shall the end come or the destruction of the wicked.”
The three standard books, “Inspired Version of the Bible, The Book of Mormon, and the Doctrine and Covenants, of The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints/Christians, will tell you it is from The City of Zion Our Ark for today {Center Place Independence, MO] that shall go into all the world preaching The gospel of Jesus Christ Restored/This gospel of the kingdom-- during the great tribulation these witnesses shall receive mighty power from God.
I understand it is now that we are able to discern between the righteous and the wicked (Malachi 3: 18) that Satan and his children/the Tares will lose their power over godly people. And this is when Jesus Christ will reign in the *midst of His saints/Christians and this world will be wonderful and more wonderful when Jesus returns in His Glory and sets up His kingdom here on earth and we will reign with Him personally for one thousand years.
“So there was a division of the people because of him,” [Jesus.] (John 7: 43)
“There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.” (John 10:19,)
 Can we even image how wonderful life will be without the influence of Satan and his workers?
“and ye shall know that I an in the midst of Israel, [every person who makes covenant with Jesus Christ becomes a child of Abraham and unless those who are direct linage of Jacob/Israel make covenant with Christ they are not counted children of Abraham] ETC. And it shall come to pass afterward I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and daughters shall prophecy, and your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions; And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my Spirit.
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be delivered; for out of mount Zion [Zion here in America] and Jerusalem {Zion in Jerusalem] shall be deliverance, as the Lord has said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.” (IV-Joel 2: 27, 28, 29, 32)

Love Offering Concert for Jeff and Dyan

The Story

He was from the United States. She was from the Philippines

They met on a mission trip to her country in the spring of 2012.

They made eyes at each other and were teased by her friends and family.

But the seed was planted.

They corresponded, half a world apart, with each other.

On a following mission trip, it was official: they were boyfriend and girlfriend.

And they made plans for the future.

But then evil reared its ugly head in an attempt to destroy their happiness.

She was raped by a co-worker and became pregnant.

But love prevailed. He loved her and loved her child to be.

In the summer of 2013 they became engaged.

(In September Dyan gave birth to her baby, Zelda)

Let’s help Jeff get them here from the Philippines

Kate Update

Kate is now in the third week of Chemo, each Thursday.
Doing fine, but very stressful on her body.
Will do Radiation next and then if it is not gone, they may have to cut.
Dad Matt and Jonathan are coping with the situation well.
They live in Fort Worth TX. if anyone is in the area they might look in on them.

Doctors think the new procedures will completely eliminate the cancer without cutting.
Program now is to kill the cancer cells in her breast and other parts of her body first, then radiation.

Will keep you updated as time goes on.
Thanks for all your prayers and thoughts.

Please pray for Jessica. She has had pain in her left side for about a month now and keeps getting worse. She was in so much pain Monday night that I took her to the ER. None of the Dr.'s know what's causing her pain. I'm at a loss, don't know where to go next. Please pray for healing. Thanks.

This was posted on Facebook by my sister-in-law about an hour ago. Jessica my niece is still in pain and in need of the Lords Blessings.

The hearing for baby Jack is probably going on right now. Pray his birth mother is acquitted and this opens up the way for Cara and David Frye to get him back. Also that this opens up the way for all the children being held hostage to be freed

Thank you so much for your prayers.

Shaulah (Paula)

The hearing for baby Jack has now been postponed until today at 1 p.m. Pray his birth mother is acquitted and this opens up the way for Cara and David Frye to get him back. Also that this opens up the way for all the children being held hostage to be freed.
There are a lot of details of what will happen when Dina, Jack's birth mother, is acquitted from selling her child. She has to go through a halfway house where she will go through help with her children, getting a job, etc. When she gets custody back she will then make long term custody decisions after that.

Let us add to our prayers that Jack's best interest is a priority to his mother or whoever has the decision-making power.

Prehistoric Code Found In Clay Balls From Mesopotamia May Represent First Data Storage System

prehistoric code
Researchers studying clay balls from Mesopotamia have discovered clues to a lost code that was used for record-keeping about 200 years before writing was invented.
The clay balls may represent the world's "very first data storage system," at least the first that scientists know of, said Christopher Woods, a professor at the University of Chicago's Oriental Institute, in a lecture at Toronto's Royal Ontario Museum, where he presented initial findings.
The balls, often called "envelopes" by researchers, were sealed and contain tokens in a variety of geometric shapes — the balls varying from golf ball-size to baseball-size. Only about 150 intact examples survive worldwide today. [See Photos of the Clay Balls & Lost Code]
The researchers used high-resolution CT scans and 3D modeling to look inside more than 20 examples that were excavated at the site of Choga Mish, in western Iran, in the late 1960s. They were created about 5,500 years ago at a time when early cities were flourishing in Mesopotamia.
Researchers have long believed these clay balls were used to record economic transactions. That interpretation is based on an analysis of a 3,300-year-old clay ball found at a site in Mesopotamia named Nuzi that had 49 pebbles and a cuneiform textcontaining a contract commanding a shepherd to care for 49 sheep and goats.
How these devices would have worked in prehistoric times, before the invention of writing, is a mystery. Researchers now face the question of how people recorded the number and type of a commodity being exchanged without the help of writing.
Peering inside
The CT scans revealed that some of the balls have tiny channels, 1-2 millimeters (less than one-tenth of an inch) across, crisscrossing them. Woods said he's not certain what they were used for, but speculates the balls contained fine threads that connected together on the outside. These threads could have held labels, perhaps made out of wax, which reflected the tokens within the clay balls.
The tokens within the balls come in 14 different shapes, including spheres, pyramids, ovoids, lenses and cones, the researchers found. Rather than representing whole words, these shapes would have conveyed numbers connected to a variety of metrological systems used in counting different types of commodities, Woods suggested. One ovoid, for instance, might mean a certain unit, say 10, which was used while counting a certain type of commodity.
The researchers, however, were perplexed when their CT scans found one clay ball containing tokens made of a low-density material, likely bitumen, a petroleum substance. "When we make a three-dimensional model of the cavity you get this very strange amoeba like-looking shape," Woods said during the lecture.
The tokens, in this instance, had air bubbles around them, suggesting they were wrapped in cloth before being put in the ball, the cloth disintegrating over time. In addition, it appears that a liquid, likely liquid bitumen, was poured over the tokens after they were inserted into the balls. What someone was trying to communicate by creating such tokens is unknown.
"That's a mystery," Woods told LiveScience in an interview. "I don't really have a good answer for that," he said, adding that the bitumen tokens may represent a divergent accounting practice, or, perhaps even, that the transaction recorded involved bitumen.
In ancient Mesopotamia bitumen was used as an adhesive and to waterproof things like baskets, boats and the foundations of buildings, Woods said. [In Photos: Treasures from Mesopotamia]
Cracking the prehistoric code
All of the clay balls contain, on the outside, one "equatorial" seal (running through the middle) and quite often two "polar" seals, running above and below.
The equatorial seals tend to be unique and more complex containing what appear to be mythological motifs; for instance a ball from the Louvre Museum shows human figures fighting what appear to be serpents. The polar seals, on the other hand, are repeated more often and tend to have simpler geometric motifs.
Based on this evidence, Woods hypothesizes the seal in the middle represents the "buyer" or recipient; the polar seals would represent the "seller" or distributor and perhaps third parties who would have participated in the transaction or acted as witnesses.
prehistoric code
The information researchers have obtained about clay balls found in Mesopotamia may make it possible, in time, to crack the prehistoric code hidden inside.
Many people would have acted as the buyers, but only a limited number of sellers or distributors would have been around to transact business with, explaining why the polar seals are repeated more often.
After a transaction of some importance was complete, one of these clay devices was created to serve as a "receipt" of sorts for the seller, as a record of what was expended. "There's a greater necessity to keep track of things that have been expended than things that are on hand," Woods said in the lecture.
Deciphering what transaction each clay ball represented is a trickier problem. Woods suspects the tokens represent numbers and metrical units. It's possible that, through the different token shapes, people in prehistoric times communicated numbers and units in a way similar to how the first scribes did 200 years later when writing was invented. If that's the case, Woods and other scientists may be able, in time, to crack the code by uncovering how token types cluster and vary.
"If they are, then there is at least some hope of deciphering the envelopes and with it uncovering the earliest evidence for complex numerical literacy," Woods said.
Technological achievement
The amount of detail the scientists gleaned from the CT scans and 3D modeling was extraordinary, Woods said during the lecture. "We can learn more about these artifacts by non-destructive testing than we could by physically opening the envelopes," he said.
Woods will publish the full research results in the future and plans to put the images and 3D models online.
To peer inside the balls Woods worked with Jeffrey Diehm, who arranged for them to be CT scanned on a state-of-the-art industrial scanner (which is better suited for this work than a medical version), and Jim Topich, who had the CT images converted into detailed, dissectible, 3D models. Diehm was with North Star Imaging in Minnesota at the time the scans were done in 2011 (he is now the managing director of Avonix Imaging) and Topich is director of engineering and design at Kinetic Vision in Cincinnati.
The Royal Ontario Museum has a special exhibition on Mesopotamia that runs to Jan. 5, 2014. Woods' presentation is part of a lecture series that is appearing along with it. http://www.livescience.com/37841-treasures-of-mesopotamia.html

Further update on Doris Hill

Hello everyone; mom is improving,speech back to normal however seems confused at times. Fed self well for breakfast and lunch. Walked around bed with walker to chair with help of 2 people. That needs to improve. Has moved out of ICU to room 234. Still no good reason for what has gone on. Neurologist still thinks she might have had some kind of seizure-not shaking kind. If it happens again, will be started on seizure medicine.The neurologist suggested that she might go home tomorrow. I am not ready for that. If she isn't able to get around very well, I think she should go to rehab for awhile to improve her strength.
Thanks again for all the thoughts and prayers.

Love,
Helen

Hello all,
There has been some improvement. She talking better. She is using her hands appropriately. Hasn't been up yet with walker to see how that is going to go. Her blood sugar has been
up a little so they are giving her insulin. Hope that improves because she told me today she does not want to take insulin. I don't blame her. She is able to eat now but they are thickening
her liquids, mostly passed her swallow study. Still don't know what has caused this problem.
Will call, text or email any changes or give update tomorrow.

October 1st 2013

Faithful Priesthood of the Restoration Branches / Groups

The purpose of this writing is to remind you about our October 19th

Restoration Branch Church
1104 E. 24th St. South
Independence, MO
(24th and Vermont)

The classes and prayer service will be centered on Feeding the Sheepfold – I cannot think of anything more important
given what we see in the world today and how we have to be ready for the flocks that we are responsible for.
As always Prayer & Testimony will start the morning beginning at 9 a.m. lasting as long as the Spirit leads us then
moving into the classes.

The classes that are being prepared for your edification:

1. Understanding the Ministry of the Priest
2. Endowment and Priesthood Authority
3. The Kirtland Temple Event

There is a real need within the Priesthood body to understand the purpose of the Endowment and how we can move
ourselves to being open for that type of experience. That will be the focus of the meeting on the 19th
become the people that the Lord would have us be.
There are many Priesthood in this part of the vineyard that have a tremendous amount of knowledge to share with the
rest of us – the more that we learn, the more that we discuss the closer we are to becoming that spiritual man:

1 Corinthians 13
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put
away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face; now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I
am known.

As servants of Jesus Christ the responsibilities are great and the opportunities are endless

Ephesians 6:6 Not with eye-service, as men pleasers; but as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the Heart.

Yours in Christ

Fairmount Elementary - Volunteer Help Needed

--------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Jeff
hisjeep@hotmail.com


Dear Saints,

I am hoping to get some volunteers for the school where I work,
Fairmount Elementary, in the Independence School District. We are located a mile or so from Sterling and 24 Hwy, in the Northwest corner of Independence. Our school struggles to get parent volunteers, so I was hoping some Saints might be available.

There are two groups of volunteers I would like to get if possible:·
Weekly help for our library. This would be to help shelve books on a regular basis, even half an hour a week would be great.·
I would really like to get a group of men to volunteer to play with the children at recess. I think it would be a tremendous witness to have a group of men willing to just spend time playing kickball, basketball or just helping jump rope. Ideally, I’d like to have people to volunteer for the same hour or so every week. I’m not looking for people to do recess duty or monitor recess, just people to spend time playing with kids. It could be retirees or people just spending their lunch time with our kids. Of course, I’d love ladies for this job as well, but many of our children don’t have great male role-models.

Either type of volunteer would be helpful for 30-60 minutes one day a week. Currently my mother-in-law and uncle are helping out weekly, and they love it.

Please email me at jeffreyaanger@gmail.com if you are interested in either opportunity.

Thanks,
Jeff Anger
