Hello friends. We are so sorry to have to let you know that Doug passed away last Friday evening. Thank you to all of his wonderful friends, he loved and appreciated each of you. His viewing and funeral information will be posted here….

We have written about working a restaurant in Fairview, Utah from July 2006 to July 2008 before in our books and on this blog. No one was paid, it was all labor given to Him.
There were many lessons learned from this experience, hard and also wonderful lessons.
The one thing we didn’t know about was that there had been a “negotiation” with the Savior about opening the restaurant and working it before we came to this mortality.
Maybe I should say a covenant was made. We obeyed the covenant and the Lord Jesus Christ came to the restaurant with His wife, Mary.
It makes me wonder how many of us made similar covenants with Him before coming here. It could have been something as simple as giving money to a beggar, which He was playing the part of.
Wow, it could be thousands of different things. Are we open to this kind of opportunity? Would we actually believe if it did happen? No, how about when it happens?
I know that for months after, people would eat their meal in that booth and then not leave. They’d just sit there. For hours sometimes. We’ve discussed “morphic resonance” in one of our books. Is that what it was? Is that why people are drawn to the Sacred Grove? To Johnson’s Farm in Kirtland? Interesting questions.
My question is, if the Lord Jesus Christ came and told one of something He wanted done, and you didn’t know if He had made a covenant with you before mortality, would you be allowed to negotiate?
I mean, is it okay to negotiate with Him. I know my friend Snuffer does. There are times he even gets what he negotiated for. But he is an attorney and is well versed in negotiations.
Should that person call the Snuff and ask him to negotiate with the Savior for them?
Or just ride it out and see what happens. Because obviously nothing will happen unless they accomplish the “mission.”
It is the time of year when we would be preparing to feed fifty families a free meal at that restaurant. After the meal the children could go upstairs to the Christmas room and pick out a present for someone else. Then their parents went up there and picked out presents for their children and themselves.
It was very hard work. We wouldn’t get home until about 1 AM and then do it all over again the next day. We also did a live Nativity outside where a manger scene had been built. Friends and workers from the restaurant had sewed costumes for people to play the parts of Mary, Joseph, Angels, Wise Men, and Shepherds. It was beyond cool. One couple even put their own baby in the manger for a few minutes.
The following Thanksgiving was when They came to the restaurant.
So if one was to receive a “download” from the Lord Jesus Christ about doing a project, and that person understands that He would make it no small project, would it be okay to negotiate with Him about certain things that you might desire if the project was actually done.
Based on the Snuffer example He is open to this.
I wonder what this person should negotiate for. Are there some “rewards” that are better than others. Or is that according to the individual. For example the three Nephites thought the reward of staying and doing His work as translated beings was better than what the other nine wanted, to be with Him in His Kingdom immediately upon transitioning.
I know what I would tell this person. Just wondering if you would have similar ideas.
Really interesting proposition, isn’t it.

There are some days that are so joyful it is hard to define. I just wish they came more often, though if journaled it can be relived and brought back to our memory over and over again.
Joseph Smith taught the Nauvoo Relief Society in a meeting on April 28, 1842, instructions about women giving healing blessings: “Respecting the female laying on hands, he further remark’d, there could be no devil in it if God gave his sanction by healing – that there could be no more sin in any female laying hands on the sick than in wetting the face with water – that it is no sin for any body to do it that has faith, or if the sick has faith to be heal’d by the administration.” (The First Fifty Years of the Relief Society, 55)
We wrote a long time ago about our youngest son being sick with a very bad earache. I was on the road and my wife was home alone with him. We had just moved to this city and she wasn’t comfortable with the local church leadership. I didn’t know what to tell her to do.
I called the next morning and asked how he was. She told me he was just fine. This really made me wonder so I asked her how that came about.
“I laid my hands on him and in the name of Jesus Christ blessed him. Then the earache went away,” she told me. God bless my wife and her faith!
Eliza R. Snow who was the Relief Society general president made the following statement in 1883 in reference to women giving healing blessings:
“Women can administer in the name of JESUS, but not by virtue of the Priesthood.”
I have come to know that worthy men and women can have priesthood. There is also “church” priesthood which we wrote about in the newest Conquering Spiritual Evil Vol. 2 book. I’m not discussing that here. Here I only want to acknowledge that true priesthood (Aaronic or Melchizedek) for men mainly gives them the right to voice or perform ordinances. True priesthood for women comes to them when they give birth or is otherwise activated by God. Theirs is to nurture and bless children unto God, for they (children) are truly Theirs (Mother and Father), not ours.
My wife had the right to lay hands on our son and bless him. She didn’t have to declare any priesthood—though she does have women’s priesthood—her faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was sufficient.
Yesterday I had watched a short video put out by a local church. As I watched it I was hit in the head with some very negative energy and had an instant headache that would not go away. I have been around these things for some twenty years and know when I get hit with negative entities, weapons, or devices. I had been attacked.
Today we did a generational healing for a young woman. In the past those attending were just my sighted friend, a recorder, and myself. Now days we have other people, mainly women because of their empathic abilities, come and help us out. There were nine of those helping today. (If you want to know more about this kind of healing, it is covered extensively in the new book mentioned above.)
As the work was ending I realized that I still had this “thing” that had hit me in the head. I knew with the holidays coming it might be hard to get a group of my men friends over to clear me of it.
I sat there in the middle of nine women and my sighted friend wondering what to do. The above references to Eliza R. Snow and Joseph Smith came to mind. So I asked:
“Lord Jesus Christ, would it be okay or Thy will that I ask these women to voice a healing blessing on me?”
The answer, “Yes.”
I asked them if they would. I had a feeling this was something they had never done before since most of them came from the same local religion and in that arena something like this is now strictly verboten. Some things run deep, especially religious mind control and habits.
I was pleasantly surprised they all agreed and was quickly surrounded. I was told which one to ask to voice the healing blessing. She didn’t hesitate a second. It was funny as they put their hands on my head they about broke my neck. I kindly asked them to take some of the load off. They did.
The healing blessing was voiced in the name of Jesus Christ and I felt Him take the offending darkness away.
Later I would ask my sighted friend if there had been a huge amount of light coming from that circle of Christ centered, faith driven, women.
“Oh yes,” was the answer. There was much light there. The Savior heard them and answered their healing petition.
Praise God. Praise the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I thank Them for faith based, Christ centered women that are not afraid of what others, especially men, women, and religious leaders might think. They are increasing their talents, gifts, and abilities by serving Him in all things. Six of the nine are married. What a blessing they are to their husbands. Three are single. What a blessing they will be to their future husbands. Though many religious based single men will probably be afraid of such women. Women that know their Savior and are not afraid to do His will.
I am grateful for my wife, that seventeen years ago was not afraid of what “religious” men might think and did what the Lord Jesus Christ told her to do, thereby helping our son in his need.
May He bless you all with such women in your world.

It is my opinion that there is no right and left in our nation any longer. There is only good and evil.
If you are burning down cities, towns, buildings, cars, or others property, you are evil. If you are killing, hurting others, or only maiming them, you are evil. I don’t care if you are possessed or not, you are evil.
Yesterday, a “dark skinned man” shots two cops in California. They were taken to the hospital and are in serious condition when the “peaceful protestors” show up to shut down the hospital to block the entrances and exits. They are pretty much stopped so they start yelling to the cops, “We hope you die.”
Some of you won’t like that I write this, that it isn’t nice. I said I’m going to call out evil for what it is. And yes, evil isn’t nice. Do you want to tell me of a time when it is?
There is a communist insurrection going on in this country. I told you the three women founders of BLM are avowed communists. Is that why when you watch the videos BLM chanting, “Death to the USA?” The rich sent their little boys and girls to Ivy League schools to be trained by their communist professors.
No? What about the professor back east that stated the man who was shot in the chest and died in Portland was a Trump supporter and therefore was a fascist, so he was happy the man was killed. Then because he put Trump supporters in a subhuman category, he declared that all fascists (Trump supporters) should be murdered.
Isn’t it interesting that in Nazi Germany the fascists declared that the Jews were “subhuman” and they killed them. Now these supposed humans are declaring that if you have opposing views, you are a fascist and need to be taken out or murdered.
If any of this offends, good. I’m tired of trying to not offend by ignoring evil. So in the words of Mark Passio, “Get as offended as you like.”
Now we have Netflix putting out child pornography in their movie “Cuties.” Or should I say pedophilia. That movie premiered last year right here in Utah at Sundance. I’m sure those of the Hollywood pedo ilk loved it. That same year, Variety reported Sterling Van Wagenen, who co-founded the Sundcance Film Festival with Robert Redford, was sentenced to at least six years in prison after pleading guilty to sexual abuse of a child that began when the child was 7 years old.
So how many of us are supporting Netflix, that purveyor of child porn, transgender porn and outright porn by subscribing to their service? Oops, did that offend? Good.
Or we have actress, Blake Lively, that came out at an awards event talking about child rape and how prevalent it is. She said she asked a law officer that deals with this kind of thing how young are the young kids he’s seeing? He said, “They are infants.” She kind of broke down and said that she had a six month old and asked, “What does that mean, what does an infant mean?”
“He said, the umbilical cord is still attached.”
Child rape is evil beyond anything I could ever consider. Except when I realize that these people don’t stop there. The babies she is talking about come from what they call “breeders.” I interviewed a woman three times back in 2002 that was born into this. When she became of childbearing age she became a breeder. They would take the child in a dark occult ritual. Then the child is traumatized, tortured, and then sacrificed. Its blood which is full of adrenalin at that point is consumed along with its flesh as a sacrament to that dark evil thing they worship as a god.
How dare I discuss such things? It is right in front of your face all the time now. It is part of their mind control to desensitize you to the horrors and make you accepting of it. The following story is quite offensive, isn’t it? The demonic human raped a six month old and put it on the internet. May he rot in hell. Oh, I’m sure they are getting his cage ready right now……
Is the pedophilia a precursor to all of this? What about the blood lust we are seeing materialize with the “peaceful protestors?” Is that also evil?
Why are so many of the so called “elites” involved in these things? They always have been, since the time of Cain. Who, by the way, still resides here on this planet and is still teaching his and his god’s followers how all of this works so they can gain what they perceive to be power. They don’t realize their god will never give them any of his power. They may suck a human being empty of its life force, get an adrenochrome fix, or fulfill the blood lust they got from their god, but it is all fleeting. Fleeting until, like a drug addict, they can get their next fix.
Is that why someone reported from Richfield, Utah how a woman was followed around Wal-Mart by six men. She left the store and they followed her out to her car. When she got in they got in their car to follow her. She got away. What was that about? Could it be her two little children that were with her? Apparently they are worth a lot of money in the child trafficking market. I told you all of these things will be coming to your doorstep.
God is allowing the fruit of evil to be judged in real time. Is God really allowing this? Why? Maybe He is putting it right in front of our faces so we can judge what is good and what is of evil. What is your choice?
“And if the time comes that the voice of the people doth choose iniquity, then is the time that the judgments of God will come upon you; yea, then is the time he will visit you with great destruction even as he has hitherto visited this land.” (Mosiah 29:27)
There is no better time to turn to Him than now, not part time either. Not with a pretty face that we put forward for others to see. “Look how good I am! I don’t support any of those things. Well except the child porn streaming channel, Netflix…..”
Does that matter? Can we have one foot in each camp? Or has the chasm become so great it is past time to choose, do we want to be part of all that is good or with what is evil. Do we choose to support evil, mentally, spiritually, physically, with our time or with our money?
Might be time to choose, that is why I don’t feel there is any right or left anymore. What are the people of the United States choosing? What will the result be? Is it okay to ignore those facts and what the Lord God, Jesus Christ, plainly says in the above scripture?
There is only Good or evil. And we know where each comes from.
It is my prayer that we look at all things with much understanding and that we then choose wisely.
“And it if seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15)

Cords and bonds have been written about on this site and in the books.
Today some wonderful women came by for some work. I ended up working on cutting cords and bonds. Doing this reminded me of something about bonds that I don’t know if we’ve discussed before. If we have, then you get the same refresher I got this morning along with some added information. Remember cords go one way while bonds go both directions.
There have been more than a few people that have had bonds removed from them that came from people that were causing them problems. In other words, there are beneficial bonds and not so beneficial bonds.
A great example of a beneficial bond would be between a husband and spouse. My sighted daughter talked about this extensively in her book, In His Arms. Pretty cool chapter. Siblings can have bonds, good and bad, between them. There are bonds of light, martial, emotional, mental, satanic, and good and not so good bonds for starters. These can go between husband and wife, you and your friends, coworkers, and anyone else for that matter.
I’ll let you figure out what a bad bond would be. Just let your imagination run and you will probably be right.
Bonds usually start as an attachment, as stated above through marital, emotional, mental, or satanic issues. The longer the attachment stays and integrates then the bond forms and will grow stronger. It can actually become part of your personality over time. Once integrated the other side can share thoughts with you, so you then think those thoughts come from your mind. They don’t.
Some bonds form what looks like a T. The top part would go from one mortal to another, while the vertical part would be going to Hell. Pretty cool, huh. A three-way connection between you and another mortal and Hell, a “Hell-bond”.
That way Hell can siphon energy from both parties and also give you some “hell juice”, whatever that is. (I made up the “hell juice” part.) It can be whatever Hell decides to send to you through that conduit.
Are dark or negative bonds important to get rid of? Absolutely, otherwise after integration they become part of you. They can become what you’d call your friend, since you can begin to enjoy their companionship and what you get from the other end. If this is a good bond from the Lord Jesus Christ it can be very beneficial. Think of a bond between a mother and child, a husband and wife, or the best one, between you and the Lord Jesus Christ.
But remember, if this isn’t a good bond, the other end is probably quite dark and will not have your best interest at heart. A bond between you and Hell would not be beneficial to you or your soul. A bond between you and an “old flame” from high school or college wouldn’t be to your best interest, would it?
Comprehending this could be important. One path to disease starts with the emotion of anger, which brings entities and attachments. The attachments can facilitate a bond at that location and the bond can then bring in disease.
The disease can be fast moving or slow, depending on the strength of the entities that come. Though the length of a disease can be made to last longer if the entities want to or are assigned to cause torture to the mortal host.
There are some diseases people elect to experience either before birth or after. It might be well to know if a disease is caused by evil entities, a test you chose to experience, or is a lack of wisdom and bad choices. The latter diseases would be from the consequences of those bad choices and lack of wisdom.
Not all diseases are caused by evil entities. Some debilitating circumstances are short-lived and others are long. An amazing amount is dependent upon strength of character as well as the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual strengths. In all life’s trials and tribulations we must look to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in gratitude. With His help we will know how to deal with either that which we elected or what life brings.
Either way, as stated, it is always desirable to come unto the Lord Jesus Christ and get rid of those negative bonds and cords.
Remember in John 14:6 He told us:
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
He is the way, truth, and light and has paid four our errors, lack of understanding and wisdom, sins and all else negative. He is the Healer, He knows how to succor us because he descended below all things in order to comprehend it all. It wasn’t just book learning or watching others, He descended below it all, it was experiential. How else would one know how to overcome it, if it wasn’t experiential, if you haven’t experienced it?
“And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people. And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities.” (Alma 7:11-12, emphasis added)

I had a very good friend come over yesterday. I hadn’t seen him in a while, so it was a very pleasant 150 minutes together.
We both have daughters that are very gifted, which is a great thing and a very hard thing. We discussed much. Unfortunately, much of it is our private conversation and will most likely not make it here. Fortunately, there are concepts that we discussed that we can talk about here. Well, that along with other life experiences the Savior has “blessed” me with. I say blessed because sometimes while going through what is brought into our lives it doesn’t seem or feel like a blessing. It is later that we look at the big picture and see how it all fits together and that honestly, it was a blessing.
Several months ago a husband and wife came here to “vet” me and what we do. We spent a good two hours together. My impression was they were a really good couple, full of love for each other and their family. She was suffering from an illness. They had told me this before they came and I asked the Savior if she was “appointed unto death.” The answer was “no.”
“And again, it shall come to pass that he that hath faith in me to be healed, and is not appointed unto death, shall be healed.” (D&C 42:48)
We’ve discussed this before here, but it needs to be mentioned again. The woman texted me asking us to come because she wanted a blessing. Several weeks later we found ourselves at their home. We took two couples to help with the portalcism on their property and home along with what we have come to call a counselor. The counselor has always been a woman that is well versed in what we do. She is there to answer any questions and make sure the family doesn’t bother us while we work. If they are looking out the window and focusing on my sighted friend it messes up her energy and focus.
The morning before we left I asked again if she was appointed unto death and the answer came back in the middle, it was not a “no” this time, but it wasn’t a “yes” either. Praise God I said.
After we had cleared the property and home I explained what the clearing/blessing on her would entail. I told her about asking the Savior if she was appointed unto death and how the answer turned out. My sighted friend said that without the blessing she would transition in two days. I believed that because of how frail the woman looked. She also said that the blessing would give her another two weeks to decide what she wanted to do, stay or go home.
My cherished outcome was the Lord Jesus Christ would heal her, a huge miracle would be declared and she’d live another hundred years with her wonderful husband and children. We’d seen these things before and I just knew. I had laid hands on people’s head before and felt His power surging through my hands. I just knew this would be another time He’d pull through for this family and me.
Did I really know? Not at all. I had a cherished outcome and therefore really couldn’t receive what the Savior wanted me to know because I already knew. In other words, my own desires or will got muddled in my mind and I decided the Lord God would do my will.
Can you believe that? After all this time I still get “muddled” and want my will to be done, forgetting it is always about His will.
This woman transitioned 15 days after the clearing/blessing. I have talked to her and she is happy where she is and is planning to work hard helping her family to get to Him, the Lord Jesus Christ and joining her many mortal years from now. It was her will or desire to transition. What a blessing she is to her husband and children. I pray the Lord Jesus Christ will give them comfort and peace. My sighted friend would later tell me that we did exactly what the Lord Jesus Christ wanted us to do in relation to this woman. Parise God.
Nearly twenty years ago my own daughter lay in the ICU of Primary Children’s Hospital. We were told she would transition within twenty-four hours. I went to back of the hospital to pray. Actually I went there to rail on God about my daughter transitioning. I had my cherished outcome that a miracle would ensue and she’d leave the hospital whole and completely recovered. The stroke that had completely destroyed her left brain would disappear and all the tissue would come back healthy. Just a minor miracle for You Lord I told myself.
She did live, but it has been a hard struggle for her and us ever since. She did come home spiritually sighted. Some days we wondered if spiritual sight was a gift as some call it or a curse. Her “healing” didn’t happen until I let go of my cherished outcome and gave gratitude and praise to my Father in Heaven for her and her life. I gave thanks for her life and then her death, telling Father that it was His will that needed to be done, not mine. I gave thanks for the ten years we had with her. All of this expressed gratitude from the heart opened the door for the Savior to do what His will was, not mine.
Recently, a friend called and asked if I’d help voice a blessing to her husband. I asked and received a yes, so I prepared myself. When I got there another friend that they had called was also there. We chatted for a while and then laid hands on the man’s head and voiced the blessing. The Savior cleared him of all spiritual weapons and entities, plus all else that need to be taken off his body. I don’t remember much else that was said.
After I got home my sighted friend called me and asked about what had happened. She ended up going to the couple’s home and he ended up in the hospital getting the needed medication to take care of the physical side of things.
Once again it was my cherished outcome that got in the way. I wanted my good friend healed. Wouldn’t you? How about your daughter? Or a woman that is still young and needed by her family? All cherished outcomes.
I have found that God doesn’t do cherished outcomes. It is about His will which is the Father’s will. He sees the big picture and knows what is best for each of us.
Even then I challenged my sighted friend about this. (Some days my soul just needs to be shaken and told how it is, so I challenge.) I told her that if the Savior had been here doing His mortal mission during these events, they’d all have been healed. “Just read the Bible,” I told her, “He healed everybody!”
There are times when I make statements like this that I realize that I’m about to be “schooled” or educated about my false ideas or misconceptions. Especially in relation to the Lord Jesus Christ.
I was told that He didn’t heal everyone. There were many He couldn’t heal due to lack of faith. (Didn’t he tell the Nephites this?) Others He couldn’t heal because they had to experience the effects of their causes, or the consequences of their actions. Meaning natural law declared they needed to pay for what they had done. She said my one friend that ended up in the hospital that night was paying physically for the way he had treated his body during his mortal life to that point. The foods he had eaten, the sugar, snacks, the lack of rest or however else he had treated his mortal flesh. Natural law declared a price has to be paid. Since that was the case there was nothing the Savior could do for him at that moment.
My sighted friend went on to explain that when Christ was mortal doing His mission, he met many that were doing the same thing, paying for how they had lived. He would tell them to repent, or change their habits and what to eat to help make their body healthy again. For most of these people He couldn’t do a thing but educate them.
I had just been educated. Do you think if I eat donuts and drink Coke for forty years, thereby developing massive health problems, I can just call on Him to deliver me from my own idiocy and heal me? The law of cause and effect states that for every action there is a reaction or a consequence. Even a cherished outcome on my behalf won’t work! Cherished outcomes don’t work. The effects in our lives will be determined by what we do. If you choose to stay up late playing video games with your children all the while knowing you need to get up early the next morning to get to work, how will your day at work be? Tired, groggy, messed up? You caused that effect/consequence and you will experience it to the fullest effect.
Remembering these experiences made me realize we block the Savior’s will by wanting our own will done, by having cherished outcomes, and by having the law of cause and effect kick in.
It should always be about His will. We have covered this before, but not in concert with cherished outcomes or needing to “suffer” for our choices. If someone calls asking for help, it might be important to ask Him about the situation. Is the person appointed unto death? Do they want to transition? If so, then there is nothing you can do. Do you have any cherished outcomes? If so, will the Lord’s process get muddled up? Is the person suffering for what they brought on themselves and the Lord’s hands are tied, so to speak? Did they come to mortality to have the experience they are now going through? Will you or can you mess it up with your own desires or will? The November 11, 2019 post talked about many of these things in a different light. Might be good to review it. It is called, Is This What PTSD Feels Like?
There is much to consider when we get involved doing His work. Is it important that we get out of the way and do what He wants us to do in the moment for that particular person? I am repenting of cherished outcomes, of thinking the Lord Christ can heal everyone and that nothing can get in His way. Are there times He can supersede natural law? Yes, but that is another discussion.
Part of what my friend and I discussed yesterday was how the Savior sees the “big” picture. He sees all the ramifications and knows what is best for each of us. Might it be important to defer to Him?
All honor, praise, and glory to Him and to our Parents. How this world presents itself to us is amazing, allowing us to learn cause and effect/consequence, learn how important it is to follow Their will and not ours, and to not have cherished outcomes. Doing all of this brings us closer to Them, we become more like Them.
Doing this, putting ourselves in Their shoes, seeing things from the spiritual like They do, helps us to not just understand things, but to comprehend them. Comprehension is so much more valuable than understanding. It’s understanding at a whole new level, don’t you think? Understanding is a male virtue, while the female opposite of understanding is wisdom. Putting these two together in balance brings knowledge or comprehension, which is a much more valuable tool. This helps us become like our Parents and Savior. They walk in balance between understanding and wisdom and therefore comprehend all things. May we do the same. One way to do so is to get rid of our cherished outcomes and view all from Their point of view, spiritually.

There seem to be many women and men having dreams of the future that is coming like a freight train. If you are like me, you’ll get their videos in your inbox or wherever you receive media.
My dreams are not of the future but many times when I dream they are lucid, meaning they appear to be very real and I can change them or make them up as it goes along.
Let’s pretend this post is my most recent lucid dream.
In my dream I have a friend that can change weather. Pretty cool, huh. I have heard of others that can do the same thing so I wasn’t that surprised in this dream when I saw my friend bring in rain and snow. Though in my dream I remember kind of chiding my friend after shoveling three feet of snow and then three more feet came down that enough had been brought in. Maybe it was just my aching back that was chiding my friend. Why do backs ache in lucid dreams and why couldn’t I make that go away?
Right now we are in a very severe drought in our neck of the woods. (In reality we are down to watering one day a week for three hours.) So I asked my friend if the Lord Jesus Christ would allow rain to be brought into our valley.
“No,” my dream friend stated, “the people here are under condemnation for giving their agency away by following their supposed leaders. And their leaders, civic and religious, are condemned for taking away the people’s agency by ‘mandating’ the wearing of masks and ‘social distancing.’ Both groups are condemned and are in need of much repentance.”
From Ephesians and Hosea we read:
“They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart.” (Eph. 4:18, ESV, emphasis added)
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.” (Hosea 4:6; ESV, emphasis added)
Are we darkened in our understanding? Will we be destroyed for a lack of knowledge? And something we have repeated here more than once:
“Oh Lord, I have trusted in thee, and I will trust in thee forever. I will not put my trust in the arm of flesh; for I know that cursed is he that putteth his trust in the arm of flesh. Yea, cursed is he that putteth his trust in man or maketh flesh his arm.” (2 Nephi 4:34, emphasis added)
Jeremiah says the same thing:
“Thus saith the Lord: Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.” (Jeremiah 17:5, KJV)
How many trust blindly in people like a Trump, Obama, Clinton, or even the Bushes? How about those in lab coats like Dr. Fauci. Good grief, he’s 80 years old, why isn’t he retired instead of inflicting humanity with his version of science? Or Bill Gates? Who made him a doctor and why won’t he go away. There are countries that have banned him, his Foundation and his vaccines. Again, why won’t he go away? Who does he work for anyway? Now there are some readers that will be upset that I haven’t listed the same number of Republicans as Democrats. I don’t keep count, evil is evil. Besides we are talking about following flesh here.
Back to my dream. The friend who could change weather went on to tell me because the people here in this valley and State have given up their agency to flesh, and since the so called religious and civic leaders have taken away their agency, both groups are condemned. Why, because they declare mask mandates, social distancing mandates, closing small businesses while leaving the large ones open, closing their chapels, not allowing singing praises to God and so much more. And then are blindly followed by the majority of the masses.
Agency is the one gift that is to be respected and never abused here in mortality and many of us “play” with it like there are no consequences at all, I mean besides being cursed for doing so. Believe me, the laws of cause and effect along with karma will be coming into their lives.
Then in my dream the religious leaders sent out a letter asking the local congregations to fast and pray for rain the next Sunday. My rain bringer friend told me the Lord Christ said that it would not happen as they are cursed. There was no mention of repentance in the letter to the congregations. Remember, the self-called righteous of have no need of that part of His gospel, repentance, do they? It seems to be that when a people, secular, religious, or both get to that point the Lord God “blesses” them to remembrance:
“Yea, and wo be unto all the cities which are in the land round about, which are possessed by the Nephites, because of the wickedness and abominations which are in them. And behold, a curse shall come upon the land, saith the Lord of Hosts, because of the people’s sake who are upon the land, yea, because of their wickedness and their abominations.” (Helaman 13:16-17)
In Mormon 1:17 God tells us that He curses the land for our sake. This is said in other places in His scriptures, look it up!
“But I did remain among them, but I was forbidden to preach unto them, because of the hardness of their hearts; and because of the hardness of their hearts the land was cursed for their sake.”
It made me wonder in my dream if the He was cursing those in my valley and State for our sake. Was it to help us remember Him, in whom we should always place our trust? How come many are so willing to trust men and religious leaders over Him? Or civic leaders over Him? I guess natural law is real, we do bring upon us the consequences of our choices, as painful or wonderful as they may be.
Does the Earth, herself, get tired of what resides on her? Does the human race seem like a virus to her when we become so worldly and of Babylon she can hardly stand it? Does she have a hand in the cursing? Interesting question, isn’t it. We can read of her pains and being weary in Moses.
“Wo, wo is me, the mother of men; I am pained, I am weary, because of the wickedness of my children. When shall I rest, and be cleansed from the filthiness which is gone forth out of me? When will my Creator sanctify me, that I may rest, and righteousness for a season abide upon my face? (Moses 7:48)
Obviously we participate in her pain when we follow men, when we disobey God and dishonor Them. Maybe we should spend more time on our knees begging forgiveness, learning what His true gospel is. I know it is not the commandments and mandates of men.
Holy cow, sure glad this was just a vivid dream. Though some of my vivid dreams are so real in what is being seen and shared that they appear to be reality itself. Wow, makes one wonder.
I talked to my sighted daughter several times today. I mentioned to her when we did a tour of Arizona many years ago. She gave a “last days” talk where she told them they would experience temperatures of 150 degrees and winds of 300 mph. So far they have experienced somewhere near 125 degrees and 200 mph winds down there. She assured me it will continue to rise as the earth continues to change and those of us living on her surface continue to NOT repent and forget turn to our Lord Jesus Christ, all the while trusting in the arm of flesh.
I better run, my three hours of watering starts in 30 minutes.
All praise and honor be to our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ, and our Mother and Father. It is Them we must follow.

Let’s discuss Antifa and BLM. Oh wait, God already has.
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof; from such turn away.” (2 Tim. 3:1-5)
“Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful. Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” (Romans 1:29-32)
And for those of you that support and believe in Antifa and BLM as if the above isn’t obvious enough: “They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.” (Pro. 28:4)
What about those of you who sit in your nice little or large homes and believe this evil won’t affect you? You think your church is going to protect you? Ha! You think your “brethren” are going to protect you? Do you rely on them and forsake the God of your soul?
“And then will I profess unto them: I never knew you; depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (3 Nephi 14:23 and Matt. 7:23) What a sad day that will be. Will you then be able to call upon your religious leader to save you?
I told you this is coming to your neighborhood and doorstep. Some seem to be so imbecilic they believe they can live under that dark dome over your head and be safe. Do you believe your neighbors are so righteous following men that you will be protected instead of cursed? (2 Nephi 4:34) Read again the above scripture. Don’t you believe or understand that will be His answer, telling you to depart, when you plead for help? Who are you? Where were you when He plead for you to follow Him, to become like Him?
Remember, we posted a blog about the chasm between good and evil growing ever wider. Can you see it??? It is so wide now that a side must be taken. Are you on the Saviors or Satan’s side? How can you follow communism or socialism and profess to follow Him? Look at the following short video from a BLM rally in Washington DC today where a black man from Salt Lake City declares they want to “rip Trump out of office”, not wait for an election, to go get him now. “We are going to burn this sh*t down.” “In Utah a whole bunch of white militia came out there, formed against our group. We out there strapped, we out there ready to burn that sh*t down, we out there to defend our f….ing selves.” He then declares “It’s time for revolution!”
Like I said, it’s here on your doorstep. It will not slow down. Most likely it will speed up. The love of others is waxing cold and they do not care about you or your feelings, property or even your life. Just watch the videos. What did the person do whose car dealership was burned to the ground? Was he evil or what did he do wrong? Make a living? These are communists and they have the backing of the Democrat leaders. The black man is the head of a group called Insurgents USA. An insurgent is a person who rises in forcible opposition to lawful authority. They engage in armed resistance to government or the execution of its laws. Just who you now have as your neighbors.
Notice the man in the video didn’t mention the 5 year old white kid who was shot in the back of the head and murdered by his next door neighbor, a black man that wanted to kill a white kid. No one shed tears over that child, no one burnt down a city over him, not one riot, not one protest. But if a criminal is acted upon by law enforcement, they’re wanting to burn down the nation.
This blog is about exposing evil, no matter where found or who it is. I have held back in the past, no more.
A federal law enforcement officer that has been deployed to Portland five times now made the following statement after being in those “peaceful protests.”
“I have been in these crowds, and I have seen the literal manifestation of a spirit amongst this crowd like a wave wash over them. They just become animated and even more bizarre crazy. Some of the protests get downright bizarre. Not only is it just that, its witchcraft. BLM, the founders, three communist, lesbian founders base all the things that they do with the writing on the ground and the chanting and ritualistic dancing, is based off an Africanized form of witchcraft. Do your research, they say it themselves. We have the literal witch’s army standing up against the people of God.”
You may or may not agree with what he says, but you surely can see what is going on isn’t from the Lord Jesus Christ. If it’s not from Him, then from where is it?
One last quote from the federal law officer:
“The immutable truth that I’ve witnessed, these reprobates can only be dealt with by actions that most find unpalatable and ungentle-man like. Because some men are not looking for anything logical like money, they can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn. But very few men have the calling from God to protect it. For every man hell bent on destroying, God sent a destroyer hell bent on stopping him.”
Remember those warriors from the Book of Mormon and what they tried to accomplish. Yes, this nation is in a death spiral, but that doesn’t mean we don’t fight evil. What are you doing or going to do? Sit and wait for the Rapture with your fellow Christians? Sorry, couldn’t help that one.
After much prayer and discussion with my sighted friend, sighted daughter, and many others that are well studied I have come to several conclusions:
We are in a civil war. This was brought about by the so called “deep state” which comes from both Republicans and Democrats. I believe the Democrats have been highly infiltrated by the communists and socialists. These people are totally antichrist. My friend made the statement “they are simply updated Gadianton robbers who believe they have the right to rule and reign as they so desire.” This is so true. Read the Book of Mormon and highlight everywhere they talk about the Gadiantons and you will be reading today’s headlines. Evil is forcefully and fearlessly pressing forward. Democrat cities are burning up, people are being murdered, physical assaults, with churches, homes, businesses and personal properties being destroyed or damaged. This is all by design; it is well planned and funded.
Our only option is the Lord Jesus Christ and His redeeming blood. Not ever a man or woman, only Him. It is my witness that we are about 9 months into the seven years of tribulation. You might want to pray about that. Only He can save, only He can protect and tell us what to do, even to giving our lives for Him and His work. What better way to transition than in His arms and doing His will. In these times and during the hell that is coming we need to connect to Him daily. Even more than that, we need that permanent connection to Him, learn to keep the emotions and fear out of it and have that bond to Him so we know what to do. Only He saves. Our connection to Him is what matters and then acting on what He says.
For those of you that still choose to follow flesh, against what he has declared in His scriptures, good luck. He will tell you that He never knew you, as the tendrils attached to your legs drag you down to hell. Wow, those curses are a bummer, aren’t they? Natural law will take precedence unless we apply repentance. Death bed repentance will most likely not do much good. Remember, repentance takes time. Time to get rid of our sinful habits.
It is my hope that we see what is going on, choose to not be part of it and fight against it. That we turn to Him, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are “as in the days of Noah.” That means rough waters ahead. (Pun intended.)

“Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: and others had trail of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: they were stoned, they were drawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, tormented.” (Hebrews 11:35-37)
During my life I have often wondered what Paul was talking about when he wrote the above to the Hebrews. Instead of saying “that they might obtain a better resurrection“, Joseph Smith said in his New Testament translation: “that they might obtain the first resurrection.” Now that would be a better resurrection, indeed.
My question had to do with all of this “suffering” in regards to obtaining a better spot after a person’s transition. Scourging, cut in half, killed by the sword, destitute, afflicted, tormented, mocked, and in prison making for a better resurrection or maybe a better location after death?
Again, Joseph sheds light: “And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received the promises, God having provided some better things for them through their sufferings; for without sufferings they could not be made perfect.” (NC, Hebrews 50)
If we question God enough, you know, like a child, or pester Him enough, He will answer us. I like to pester, I mean ask. That is what is desired to be shared today. I’m not saying that this is the end-all answer. There are many levels to the scriptures, and so there are many answers or levels of answers. This is just one that I received. You can take it for what you paid for it.
In a past post I mentioned my brother that had recently transitioned. When we attended the viewing in Arizona I was presented with a question by his wife, now widow.
“Doug, why did Hugh have to suffer so much? The past many months were hell for him, he was in so much pain,” she cried.
“The last three weeks he couldn’t eat, the cancer was down his throat and in his mouth. It was throughout his entire body, he was in so much pain,” she told me.
She cried out, “The last three days he couldn’t talk! The cancer had shriveled his tongue. The inside of his mouth was all black. He would write me notes saying how sorry he was and how much he love me.”
“God having provided some better things for them through their sufferings; for without sufferings they could not be made perfect.”
Driving home from Arizona her question kept playing in my mind, “Why did he have to suffer so?”
I know there is more to this life than many of us understand or give credit. We fast as a sacrifice for clearings, blessings, and portalcisms or on behalf of others. That is a sacrifice. But what is it about suffering? There is much to consider if we look at things from our Savior’s point of view. Though while suffering in a mortal body through pain, stress or whatever, makes it hard to open those spiritual eyes and ask what it is all about.
After arriving home my sighted friend called and asked how it went. You knew I was going to present her with my sister-in-law’s question, didn’t you.
I told her of his intense suffering and asked why?
“He made some mistakes in his life that I can see, but will not tell you about, and he desired to pay for them in mortality rather than pay the price in hell after transitioning.”
Wow, I needed to hear that again and asked her to repeat what she had just said. She did.
“So,” I stated, “rather than be taken to hell and suffer for his misdeeds there, he asked to suffer while in mortality instead. That way when he transitioned he wouldn’t be taken to hell, he would be allowed into paradise.”
“Yes,” she answered.
A better resurrection indeed. Thank you Paul. No, thank you Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for allowing such a thing to be possible. Though possible, it is hard to get out of hell and can take a long while. It is hard to remember thngs in hell as our minds become clouded and we forget.
In the past we’ve written about my former ward priesthood leader that testified of following men and how tendrils came up from hell and attached to his legs as he testified of following men. When he would transition these tendrils would pull him down into hell. This man transitioned a few months ago. His last year was extremely painful and hard.
You know what I did, I asked the Savior if my friend had wanted the pain and suffering be endured in mortality so he wouldn’t have to pay the price in hell for his testimony of men. The answer was yes. I asked my sighted friend for a witness and the answer was again, yes.
Some things are not as they seem to our puny mortal minds, there is a much higher purpose, even in suffering, afflictions, torments and the various ways of transitioning. I have had more than a few people declare to me that our God does not want us to suffer. This may or may not be true, I have not asked. I do know He does allow natural law to take effect unless we repent and access His atonement. Sacrifice is required for sin. Concepts like these do require we get on our knees and ask our Father of His ways. As He stated:
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah, 55:8-9)
It is strongly suggested that we ask Him about this concept of paying the price in mortality through our suffering rather than ending up in hell for our misdeeds and paying the price there.
Tough stuff what we go through when we don’t make use of His atoning sacrifice while in mortality. Natural law requires a price be paid. It is our choice if we pay it or take Him up on His offer of paying the price. Our Savior offers to pay it for us if we will but repent and follow Him. Though for many, that seems to be a sacrifice with too great a price. Go figure.
I am grateful of what my mortal brother suffered. Hell is not a kind and gentle place to end up in. I am grateful for what my Brother suffered, as exquisite as it was, allowing us to repent, suspending or superseding natural law and allowing us the opportunity to start our transitioned life in the world of spirits in Paradise rather than starting in Hell.
I look forward to the day I get to share this with my born-again Baptist sister-in-law.
