055 – Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord:

Anger and Hatred brings danger upon our own selves:


What displeases the Lord, is abhorrence , abomination, acrimony, alienation, anger, animosity, animosity, animus, annoyance, antagonism, antipathy, aversion, bad chemistry, bad feeling, bad vibes, bad will, bitterness, blow up, cat fit, chagrin, choler, coldness, conniption, contempt, cruel, dander up, detestation, disaccord, disapprobation, disapproval, disfavor, disgust, dislike, displeasure, distaste, distemper, distrust, enmity, envy, exasperation, execration, fury, gall, grudge, hard feelings, hate, hatred, hissy fit, horror, hostility, huff, ignominy, ill humor, ill temper, ill will, impatience, indignation, infuriation, irascibility, ire, irritability, irritation, loathing, mad, malevolence, malice, malignance, miff, militancy, mutual, hostility, nastiness, odium, outrage, passion, peevishness, personality conflict, petulance, pique, prejudice, rage, rancor, rankling, repugnance, resentment, revenge, revulsion, slow burn, soreness, spiteful, stew, storm, tantrum, temper, tiff, umbrage, unfriendliness, venom, vexation, violence, and etc. towards others.

But I say unto you that whosoever is angry with his brother, shall be in danger of his judgment; and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, or Rabcha, shall be in danger of the council; and whosoever shall say to his brother,

Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam’s transgression.

We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.

We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

Leviticus 26:17 And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.

Deuteronomy 30:17 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;

Blessed Are the Merciful

Jesus Christ loves you as His brethren and sisters as Saints of the Lord.

For you have great faith and faithfulness, which you need to bring it out.

You have great integrity of your lives.

You have great desire to live as the Lord would have you live and for the effort you are making to do so and if we make a mistake, try again.

Jesus knows that many of you carry very heavy burdens.

Jesus knows that many of you live under extreme stress.

Jesus knows that you are anxious to do the right thing and that you are prayerfully trying to do so.

Jesus knows also that none of us has reached that perfection.

He has admonished us to seek, and therefore, with only a desire to give encouragement.

Here is from the sermon which Jesus gave to the multitude who gathered on the mount: “Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.” (Matt. 5:7.)

We live in a world where there is so much of harshness.

We live in a world filled with hostility and meanness.

By reason of our human natures, so many seem prone to act with total and pure selfishness regardless of injury to others.

Many of us are broken and discouraged and with tears in our eyes,

It’s a rough world out there. It’s a jungle without mercy.

How godlike a quality is mercy.

We cannot buy it.

It must come from the heart.

It must be stirred up from within.

It is part of the endowment each of us receives as a son or daughter of God and partaker of a divine birthright.

Jesus Christ pleads for an effort among all of us to give greater expression and wider latitude to this instinct which lies within us.

The Lord has told us, that there comes a time, possibly many times, within our lives when we might cry out for mercy on the part of others.

How can we expect it unless we have been merciful ourselves?

A parable of the Master comes to mind:

There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table

And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

And in hell he lift[ed] up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot. (Luke 16:19–26.)

I plead for a stronger spirit of compassion in all of our relationships, a stronger element of mercy, for the promise is sure that if we are merciful we shall obtain mercy.

Many people that go to court which has been with greed and prideful actions, for there is no mercy shown through long years of oppression, harsh and unrelenting; and now in this hour of bitter culmination none was extended.

Mercy is of the very essence of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The degree to which each of us is able to extend it becomes an expression of the reality of our discipleship under Him who is our Lord and Master.

I remind you that it was He who said, “Whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.” (Matt. 5:39.)

It was He who said, “And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.” (Matt. 5:40.)

It was He who said, “And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.” (Matt. 5:41.)

It was He who said, “Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.” (Matt. 5:42.)

It was He who said to the woman taken in sin:

Where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. (John 8:10–11.)

It was He who, while hanging on the cross in dreadful agony, cried out, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. (Luke 23:34.)

He, the Son of the everlasting Father, was the symbol of mercy.

His ministry was one of compassion toward the poor, the sick, the oppressed, the victims of injustice and man’s inhumanity to man.

His sacrifice on the cross was an unparalleled act of mercy in behalf of all humanity.

How great a thing is mercy.

Most often it is quiet and unassuming.

It receives few headlines.

It is the exact opposite of vengeance and hatred, of greed and offensive egotism.

Mercy is an attribute to God himself.

If cultivated among all men, it would put an end to the violence and killing of war.

For all too many years now we have watched and heard the conflict that has gone on in the world of fighting and wars.

Surely those who have been closest to it and most affected by it must be weary of it.

An outpouring of mercy on both sides would overcome the corrosive hatred that has existed and festered for so long.

It is time for each side to act with greater compassion toward the other.

Those who are merciful will find the mercy for which they hunger.

Of all the wars that have afflicted the United States, none was so costly in suffering and death, none so filled with venom and hatred as was the American Civil War.

There are few more touching scenes in history than that of April 9, 1865, at the battle of Appomattox, Virginia, when General Robert E. Lee surrendered to General Ulysses S. Grant.

General Grant wrote a brief statement of terms under which the soldiers of the South were free to return to their homes with their personal sidearms, their private horses, and baggage.

There was no recrimination, no demand for damages, no apologies required or punishment given.

This has gone down in the records of war as a great and magnificent act of mercy.

In any war, it is “better to feed them than to fight them” shows not only the natural mercy of our nature, but the greater wisdom real in a compassionate attitude toward the less fortunate.

There is so much of civil strife and conflict in our society that could be improved by a small touch of mercy.

Today, many in the world has reached a point where the Mosaic law of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth has been enlarged to require three eyes for one eye and three teeth for one tooth.

Many victims, badgered and broken, cry in vain for a touch of kindness.

We see labor strife fraught with violence and untamed accusations.

Where there is a greater willingness on the part of each side to look with some element of mercy on the problems of the other, most of this could be avoided.

And there are still those, not a few, who without compassion “grind the faces of the poor.” (Isa. 3:15.)

Our generation is afflicted with critics in the media who think they do a great and clever thing in cruel and harsh attacking men and women in public office and in other positions of leadership.

They are prone to take a line or a paragraph out of context and pursue their prey like a swarm of killer bees.

They lash out with criticism and unpleasant implications against those who have no effective way of fighting back or who, in the spirit of the teachings of the Master, prefer to turn the other cheek and go forward with their lives.

In many areas of the world, governments are waging a battle against illegal drugs.

But along with this there is need for compassion toward many of the victims of drugs.

Whenever we help one to find a better way, our effort becomes an act of mercy with a grateful response rather than an act of punishment followed by resentment.

There are more homeless in our nation, due to many different types of hardships in our nation.

The Lord is approve of most warmly those who with a compelling spirit of kindness reach out to those in distress, regardless of whom they might be, to help and assist, to feed and provide for, to nurture and to bless.

As these extend mercy, the Lord God of heaven will bless them, and their posterity after them, with His own mercy.

I am satisfied that these who impart so generously will not lack in their own store, but that there will be food on their tables and a roof over their heads.

One cannot be merciful to others without receiving a harvest of mercy in return.

And this brings us to another area where there is so great a need for that mercy which speaks of forbearance, kindness, clemency, compassion.

This speaks of the homes of the people.

Every child, with few possible exceptions, is the product of a home, be it good, bad, or indifferent.

As children grow through the years, their lives, in large measure, become an extension and a reflection of family teaching.

If there is harshness, abuse, uncontrolled anger, disloyalty, the fruits will be certain and discernible, and in all likelihood they will be repeated in the generation that follows.

If, on the other hand, there is forbearance, forgiveness, respect, consideration, kindness, mercy, and compassion, the fruits again will be discernible, and they will be eternally rewarding.

They will be positive and sweet and wonderful.

And as mercy is given and taught by parents, it will be repeated in the lives and actions of the next generation.

The Lord speaks to us, the fathers and mothers everywhere with a plea to put harshness behind us, to bridle our anger, to lower our voices, and to deal with mercy and love and respect one toward another in our homes.

Religion without morality, professions of godliness without charity, church-membership without adequate responsibility as to individual conduct in daily life, are but as sounding brass and tinkling cymbals.

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Honesty of purpose, integrity of soul, individual purity, [absolute] freedom of conscience, willingness to do good to all men even enemies, pure benevolence; these are some of the fruits by which the religion of Christ may be known, far exceeding in importance and value the spread of an established opinion, and the delivery of theories.

In that same views of the Lord, today applies the scriptures has told us, to succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees.

Therefore, strengthen your brothers and sisters in all your conversation, in all your prayers, in all your exhortations, and in all your doings.

For us as a world to become kinder, there is to be such it must come of the spontaneous expression of millions of kinder, gentler human hearts.

Let us be more merciful.

Let us get the arrogance out of our lives, the conceit, the selfishness, self-centeredness, and insensitivity.

Let us be more compassionate, gentler, filled with self-control and patience and a greater measure of respect one for another.

In so doing, our very example will cause others to be more merciful, and we shall have greater claim upon the mercy of God who in His love will be generous toward us.

For behold, are we not all beggars?

Do we not all depend upon the same Being, even God, for all the substance which we have, for both food and raiment, and for gold, and for silver, and for all the riches which we have of every kind?

And now, if God, who has created you, on whom you are dependent for your lives and for all that ye have and are, doth grant unto you whatsoever ye ask that is right, O then, how ye ought to impart of the substance that ye have one to another.

To which I add that the power of the Master is certain and His word is sure.

He will keep His promise toward those who are compassionate.

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.” (Matt. 5:7.)

I am confident that a time will come for each of us when, whether because of sickness or infirmity, of poverty or distress, of oppressive measures against us by man or nature, we shall wish for mercy.

And if, through our lives, we have granted mercy to others, we shall obtain it for ourselves.

For thus saith the Lord—I, the Lord, am merciful and gracious unto those who fear me, and delight to honor those who serve me in righteousness and in truth unto the end.

Great shall be their reward and eternal shall be their glory.

Of these things I bear witness as I testify that God our Eternal Father lives, that He is a God of mercy, that His Son gave His life in a great merciful atonement for each of us, and that we shall be the beneficiaries of that mercy as we extend it to others.

Remember: There is a kingdom like the Sun, kingdom like the Moon, and a kingdom like the stars, as one star differs from another star in glory.

How hard are you going to work for the HIGHEST KINGDOM like the Celestial kingdom, and not the lower kingdoms like the Terrestrial kingdom, and the Telestial kingdom.

Many will go to the Telestial kingdom.

 
 
 



How long is Eternity?

This life is very short compared to Eternity, this is a test for us here.

Whether we live a few moments in the mother’s womb or 150 years old, compared to the Eternities, this life is nothing, we are here to choose the right and marry and raise a family of children unto God.

Families are forever with God.



The Apostle Paul talks about the 3 Kingdoms or Glories.

1 Corinthians 15:40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial : but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.

1 Corinthians 15:41 There is one glory of the sun , and another glory of the moon , and another glory of the stars : for one star differeth from another star in glory.


Three Kingdoms of Glory:

There are three kingdoms of glory: the celestial kingdom, the terrestrial kingdom, and the telestial kingdom. The glory we inherit will depend on the depth of our conversion, expressed by our obedience to the Lord's commandments. It will depend on the manner in which we have "received the testimony of Jesus".

Celestial Kingdom – Like the - Sun :


The celestial kingdom is the highest of the three kingdoms of glory.

Those in this kingdom will dwell forever in the presence of God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ.

This should be our goal: to inherit celestial glory and to help others receive that great blessing as well.

Such a goal is not achieved in one attempt; it is the result of a lifetime of righteousness and constancy of purpose.

The celestial kingdom is the place prepared for those who have "received the testimony of Jesus" and been "made perfect through Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, who wrought out this perfect atonement through the shedding of his own blood".

To inherit this gift, we must receive the ordinances of salvation, keep the commandments, and repent of our sins.

"All who have died without a knowledge of this gospel, who would have received it if they had been permitted to tarry, shall be heirs of the celestial kingdom of God; "Also all that shall die henceforth without a knowledge of it, who would have received it with all their hearts, shall be heirs of that kingdom;

"For I, the Lord, will judge all men according to their works, according to the desire of their hearts".

"I also beheld that all children who die before they arrive at the years of accountability are saved in the celestial kingdom of heaven".

There are three degrees within the celestial kingdom.

To be exalted in the highest degree and continue eternally in family relationships, we must enter into "the new and everlasting covenant of marriage" and be true to that covenant.

In other words, temple marriage is a requirement for obtaining the highest degree of celestial glory.

All who are worthy to enter into the new and everlasting covenant of marriage will have that opportunity, whether in this life or the next.

Love Heavenly Father, Love the Lord Jesus Christ, and Love the Holy Ghost, Be Beloved, Be Holy, Bowels of Mercies, Do All Your Duties, Forbearing One Another, Forgiving, Helping the Poor, Humbleness of Mind, Keep The Commandments, Kindness, Longsuffering, Meekness, Repent and Forsake

Terrestrial Kingdom – Like the - Moon :


Those who inherit terrestrial glory will "receive of the presence of the Son, but not of the fulness of the Father.

Wherefore, they are bodies terrestrial, and not bodies celestial, and differ in glory as the moon differs from the sun".

Generally speaking, individuals in the terrestrial kingdom will be honorable people "who were blinded by the craftiness of men".

This group will include members of the Church who were "not valiant in the testimony of Jesus".

It will also include those who rejected the opportunity to receive the gospel in mortality but who later received it in the postmortal spirit world.

Love Heavenly Father, Love the Lord Jesus Christ, and Love the Holy Ghost, Be Beloved, Be Holy, Bowels of Mercies, Do All Your Duties, Forbearing One Another, Forgiving, Helping the Poor, Humbleness of Mind, Keep The Commandments, Kindness, Longsuffering, Meekness, Repent and Forsake

Telestial Kingdom – Like the - Stars :


As one star differ from another star in glory.

Telestial glory will be reserved for individuals who "received not the gospel of Christ, neither the testimony of Jesus".

These individuals will receive their glory after being redeemed from spirit prison, which is sometimes called hell.

Anger, Blasphemy, Concupiscence, Covetousness, Discord, Disobedience, Doing Contrary to the Laws of God, Envy, Evil, False Witness, Filthy Communication, Fornication, Gluttony, Graven Image, Greed, Hath, Did Not Honour Thy Father and Mother, Idolatry, Inordinate Affection, Keep the Sabbath Day, Laziness, Lust, Lying, Malice, Mischief, Neglecting, No Other Gods, Piety, Pride, Shalt Not Bear False Witness Against Thy Neighbour, Shalt Not Commit Adultery, Shalt Not Covet Thy Neighour's Property, Shalt Not Kill, Shalt Not Steal, Sloth, Take Lords Name In Vain, Triumphing over Others, Uncleanness, Wicked Imaginations, Wrath, and Etc.

Perdition :


Some people will not be worthy to dwell in any kingdom of glory.

A place of outer darkness.

They will be called "the sons of perdition" and will have to "abide a kingdom which is not a kingdom of glory".

This will be the state of "those who know [God's] power, and have been made partakers thereof, and suffered themselves through the power of the devil to be overcome, and to deny the truth and defy [God's] power".

Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
(Why would the Lord tells us about another book will come forth in the Latter Days?)
(What are the words and the book the Lord is telling Daniel about, which will come in the last days? The Holy Bible is already here? So what is the other book, Daniel is talking about in the last days. It cannot be the Holy Bible; it must be some other book?)
(We have had horse and buggy to thousands of year, and since early 1800’s, man has been inventing things and now we are into space, so where is that other book other than the bible?)


Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
(Again, the Lord is telling us about a sealed book. Is there a book other than the Bible,.)
(God said it twice, another book to be reviled in last days. What is that other book? I am sure it would be like unto the Bible, having similar teaching, but a different book? Or did God forget about another book for us in the last days. And why until the last days, unless it has more meat to the text and the people were not ready for such meat then.)


Ezekiel 37:16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions:
(Stick = Book or a Bible, Judah = Old and New Testament, David = Linage same as Jesus Christ)
(Joseph, the stick of Ephraim = Another Book or Bible, different from the Holy Bible.)
(Ephraim was the son of Joseph that was sold into Egypt, by his brothers. Another stick or Bible type Book will have to come forth like unto the Bible. It will be another witness of Jesus Christ. Which is, like onto the Holy Bible. Line up line, here a little, there a little, or give baby milk before meat. The Lord gave the Holy Bible like milk before another Book or another Bible type was like meat.)
(Where is it?)


Ezekiel 37:17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
(The Holy Bible and the other Book or other Bible, tells about Jehovah and Jesus Christ and His teachings in both parts of the world.)
(When we join them together, which means for us to believe that they are both just as important as the other, and that they are both from Him.)
(The Bible and this other Book will tell about Jehovah or Jesus and His teachings in both parts of the world.)
(When we join them together, which means for us to believe that they are both just as important as the other, and that they are both from Jehovah or Jesus?)


Revelation 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
(Revelations is for us in the Last Days...)
(A gospel for the Last Days called the Everlasting Gospel or another Book or another Bible that has to be brought to all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people.)
(The Holy Bible and the other Book or another Bible is His teachings for us in the Last Days.)
(The Holy Bible is already here for thousands of years, but in the Last Days, is another Book or another Bible, which has never been seen before by man, until the Last Days. Many will reject it, for they will say, a bible, a bible, who needs another bible, we have a bible, and that is all we need. Not what God’s wants them to have.)



The Lord Jesus Christ, wants the best for you in these Latter-days and it is this sealed book just for you which is not the Bible. The Bible and this other Book will be one in His hand in the Last Days before Armageddon and go to all nations round the world.

Matthew 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

In the Sacred and Holy Name of Jesus Christ, Amen
