OAKMAN THOUGHTS FOR TODAY: 11/08/2017


"As It Was in the Days of Noah ••• " - continued -
A Word of Warning by Arthur A. Oakman
October 15, 1938

As it was in the days of Noah, so shall the coming of the Son of Man be. ---Matthew 24:37.

THE TESTIMONY OF NOAH WAS REDEMPTIVE - continued -

The ark was built by the believers. It was a task conceived by Deity
whereby men in doing it might save themselves and others.
Zion, the goal of the church of Jesus Christ, is an exact parallel.
In the ancient day, the warning to escape would have been useless
without the means of escape. Such warning would be equally useless
today without the means of salvation from destructions.
Our generation must be warned. But a way of escape must also
he provided. Some structures must arise built under Divine guidance
by believers which is of such a nature that it will rise triumphant
over every judgement which must come upon people of wickedness.
In the process of preaching and building, opportunity must be
given to all who will share in the task. This is the evident
intention of Divinity and the task of His church. A city is
to be built. It will be built when men believe sufficiently to build it.
It will be free from the judgement which comes to cities where
wickedness reigns because the inhabitants will keep the law of righteousness.
Peace will be in its borders because its people will give allegiance
to the Prince of Peace. In it, disease will be looked upon as sin,
and every person will be healthy. The love of men, instead of waxing cold, will
grow warmer and warmer because every man will seek the interest
of his neighbor, and all shall have equal opportunity, under God,
of making the most of himself. Such a city "hath foundations,"
and its "builder and maker is God."

Such shall be. "As it was .... so shall it be." The gospel shall
be preached, the world shall be warned, a way of escape shall be prepared
into which shall be gathered every needful, thing to perpetuate the purposes
of Deity. The cry today:
"Save yourselves from this untoward generation,"
"Gather ye out-of Babylon"
"Stand ye in holy places."

{comments and the remains of the day:
Bro. Oakman shares basic, yet crucial insights and
actual approaches to be implemented unto those who
truly seek the Zion of God. As we read the Inspired Version,
we see even in this sacred topic, the Lord allows the
principle of there being an opposition in all things
[ as father Lehi so beautifully discloses in the Book of Mormon ]
to persist, because this principle is an Eternal principle.
The I.V. records there were and are two (2) Zions.
There were even two (2) Enochs.
The one most glorious and everlasting is further identified and
criteria for us given to distinguish is also found in at least
three other places in the New Testaments. Further light and Truth
is found throughout the Doctrine and Covenants.

And in all of these, the principles stated by Bro. Oakman are
expounded upon and given that we might be better aligned with
and to and LOYAL to the loyal town(one Hebrew rendering), the
Zion of God.

The other enoch and other zion, are, for far too many in places of
"leadership" about every faction and fraction who self-associate
with the Fullness of the Gospel, use the enoch and talk of the zion
of a lesser god- the god of self aggrandizement, self promoting, and
the elitists mind set which permeates and pervades. In the Zion
which God took unto Himself, every person, every citizen, every member
was given and afforded his or her turn. Yes, not all have the
same gift, but who are any of the current elites to dictate that only
the same 3, 4 5 person are allowed to bring their offering before
the Lord. To allow all to share in the bringing
forth and seeking to establish the cause of is one of the most
charitable acts of God toward the human race and demonstration
of Divine Power and Grace. In part, Nephi's statements about
how great are the condescensions of God unto the children of men.

Of course, there are those who teach and write and promote the
'doctrines' that many of the revelations of Jesus Christ are time bound
and 'may' not be relevant or applicable to us, today. Which is only
both laying the ground work for and furthering the premise that
certain groups can call other seventy, apostles, high priests,
patriarchs, and various quorums. And many of the remaining factions and
fractions, continue to 'assimilate' such representatives into the
assembly of Saints who are making such attempts to remain true
and faithful to the Gospel once restored to the Saints.

Apostle Paul states:
"Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.
Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation,
it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should
earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints."

And I would suppose that every faction and fraction of the religious world
has, in part, even wrested this scripture to justify and "prove"
their respective claims.

Bro. Oakman, and others, have written and warned and admonished us to
be about the work of the Lord's Zion - "For Zion's sake"

It long appears that the children of men will have to be compelled to be humble.
We read and hear of types and shadows, of paradigms, of harbingers, of
that which is to come. The Book we have in our midst, and most of the
various edits and editions and printings have NOT altered this part;
our treatment of and our conduct toward every aspect of the Book of Mormon
has been such that the Lord stated:
"and the whole world lieth in sin, and groaneth under the darkness and under the bondage of sin:
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 is under the bondage of sin;
and whoso 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 darkness even now.
And your minds in times past have been darkened because of unbelief, and because
you have treated lightly the things you have received, which vanity and
unbelief hath brought the whole church under condemnation.
And this condemnation resteth upon the children of Zion, even all; and they shall
remain under this condemnation until they repent and remember the new covenant,
even the Book of Mormon and the former commandments which I have given them,
not only to say, but to do according to that which I have written,"

There is a storm coming inspite of all the railings and variances and
'interpretations' of the many of the many factions and fractions and
even in this some would and will use even this to their
own advantage, for a little while. What is left, what remains for
us to do is to be found among those who shall remain and whom the Lord
will determine as this:
"O all ye that are spared, because ye were more righteous than they,
will ye not now return unto me, and repent of your sins, and
be converted, that I may heal you?"

The prophets cry out to us, to AWAKE !

The Lord says: "Repent, for the Kingdom of God is nigh at hand."}
