“BE YE CLEAN” – part II
How I rejoice when others, who are far more then just students of the WORD, are also writing and warning and telling. How we need many more students of the WORD, but how much more we need many more who “live by every WORD that proceedeth forth from the mouth of GOD”
Deuteronomy 8:3 “And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live.” Yet the very name of the book means: “These are the WORDS”
But ye justify the willful rejection of these things by saying – “it is from the old testament and such things are not relevant for us today” and that has been and continues to be expressed in many ways by far too many.
Ezekiel shares the mind and will of God, the heart of God is these WORDS:
Ezekiel 33:30 “Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, everyone to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the Lord.”
In a day when all of us need to “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord;”, to be gathered to hear and consider the WORD of the Lord, to understand more fully the fuller revelation of what it means, to be gathered; the far too many of the elites, would rather lead and drive a people and a church to the gates of oblivion, than to put away their foolishness and pride and ego and self-proclaimed importance; after all “they” seek the chief seats, don’t they?
Doctrine and Covenants 83: 8 is the Lord’s response to the degree of “uncleanness in the church” in how the WORD of the Lord was “handled” and is still being handled, how the creature responds to the Creator, and apparently, this response hasn’t improved sufficiently for the Lord to remove this judgement from the church:
“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, that they may bring forth fruit meet for their Father's kingdom, otherwise there remaineth a scourge and a judgment to be poured out upon the children of Zion; for, shall the children of the kingdom pollute my holy land? Verily, I say unto you, Nay.”
The Lord’s WORDS, not mine. The Lord’s assessment and judgement, not mine. And again the call for a people to be clean – especially “be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord.” Isaiah 52
Being clean has to do with ALL that is Spiritual. And if there is anything, anywhere, anytime, or anyone not identified, being clean has its jurisdiction and criteria to do with these as well.
Another great prophet, Moses, sought to teach the people of these principles.
“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; 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 fullness of his glory.” Why?? Because they were not sufficiently clean, every whit.
The Book of Leviticus, part of the Old Testament, spends much time and space in the principles of and the implementations of many aspects of what the Lord would teach His people about being clean.
Social distancing is not new – as we began:
“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done; and there is no new thing under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9
In spite of what mis-informed and even prejudiced people have thought and taught, the Old Testament is very much relevant for our day and speaks to many issues of our day.
Moses, the second greatest prophet of all, Jesus Christ being the first; was given to know and to teach the people of his day, the church of his day, and prepare the way for the rising generation to come and even to our day; many eternal attributes and vital spiritual TRUTHS. Moses often gets a bum rap about many things, but that will be a topic of conversation at another time.
Moses brought forth, as was given of the Lord – a great many precepts all pointing to a people and how to: “Be Clean” – Clean in body, mind, and spirit. Leviticus is replete with a great many examples and “how to” in their day and one of the remedy’s the Lord brought to Moses was the concept of social distancing. The person, male or female, who was deemed unclean, was put outside the camp for a specified number of days. There was not any political agenda in any of this. The Lord also identified animals which were unclean for humans; and perhaps now we begin to see the all encompassing and far-reaching and forward looking intelligence of what was given. Bats were identified as an animal deemed unclean for humans. What sketchy information we get from Wuhan, China, is that some experimentation with bats was involved.
Speaking of animals, from the book of Revelation, what animal is identified and used as the type and shadow of evil and the demise of all righteousness? And why is it that the country of china is associated with a dragon ? In spite of the “official” chinese explanation about a dragon, the fact remains it is part of their culture, etc.
In our day, May 12, 2020, marked with a virus, – Corona Virus 19 , which has been and continues to be the instrument where the evil designs of conspiring men, women, governments, and others would seek to take away our God given freedoms and liberties; the designs of conspiring men, women, governments, and others would destroy our economy, would take away your right to livelihood and to provide for your family; where the evil designs of conspiring men, women, governments, and others would seek to impose bondage and slavery; and where the evil designs of conspiring men, women, governments, and others would seek to infest and infect not only this society, but the entire society of nations, with that which is far more deadly and devastating – the imposition of the fascist designs of spying on one another; of reporting who went where and for what purpose; and ultimately to decimate all religion and all things which pertain to God and Godliness. The foolishness of many would not listen to the TRUTH what the Lord gave in what we call Section 86 – has far more to do with the just wheat and corn. Certain businesses can remain open, and it appears only those who have ties to China, yet when people willingly choose to attend church, they are denied the very basic and fundamental and the first entry in the Bill of Rights:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
George Orwell writes this observation: “Threats to freedom of speech, writing and action, though often trivial in isolation, are cumulative in their effect and, unless checked, lead to a general disrespect for the rights of the citizen.”
“BE YE CLEAN”
