Hearken! Oh ye inhabitants of the earth. Listen together and open your ears, for it is I, the Lord God of all the earth, the creator of all things that speaketh unto you. Yea, even Jesus Christ speaking by the voice of my servant whom I have called and chosen to be a light and a covenant to the world in these last days. I have called him and given him a name to be had in remembrance before me, even the name Immanuel David Isaiah, which name being interpreted means: God with us — Beloved of God — The Lord is salvation — signifying the deliverence that shall come to my people by my mighty hand in these last days. For lo, I am even now making bare my holy arm in the eyes of all nations, for gross darkness covers the earth and gross darkness envelops the minds of the people, for Satan reigns and his dominions are great, and he sitteth upon many waters, even Babylon the great, that great whore of all the earth. And the peoples of the earth stumble and grope in darkness at noonday, and the humble followers of Jesus Christ suffer and mourn under the heavy hand of oppression and murder and secret combinations, which do by their secret crafts and arts, their secret governments and societies, with their false traditions and churches subject the whole earth to the iron yoke of bondage, misery and death; and the true and faithful and humble followers of Christ cry out in the anguish of their souls for relief and deliverance. I, the Lord God, the Savior of the world, have long heard their cries, and the cries of all the holy prophets and saints who have cried unto me, and do still fervently petition me, and to whom I have promised and covenanted that the day of deliverance will come. And verily, verily, I say unto all, Repent ye, Repent ye, while the day lasts, before the night comes, wherein no work or labor for my kingdom can be performed. Yea, verily, I say unto all in every nation, in every land among all peoples, repent, and come unto me that I may heal you. Forsake all your works of darkness wherein ye seek for riches and the vain and foolish things of this world, wherein ye seek to obtain power and gain and popularity and to satisfy all the lusts of the flesh. Yea, cease to do evil, and learn to do good, and come unto me, and I will heal you. For this cause I have raised up my servant Immanuel David Isaiah, ever my righteous right hand, to be a light and a covenant to my people — to all those who will repent and come unto me, for in my servant, Immanuel is the fullness of my gospel, which I, the Lord brought forth out of obscurity and out of darkness through my servant Joseph Smith, Jr. And by the hand of my servant Joseph, I, the Lord God, Jehovah, brought forth out of the bowels of the earth the Book of Mormon, which book contains my true doctrine, and stands with the Bible to witness for my name unto all the earth, to show unto all people that I am the very Christ who suffered and died for their sins, and rose again the third day, that all men who will believe in me, and will repent, and be baptized in my name, shall have eternal life. And I, even Jesus Christ, appeared unto my servant Joseph Smith, Jr., and I sent mine angels unto him, and I revealed unto him many great and marvelous truths pertaining to my everlasting gospel, and I conferred upon him and other faithful ones the holy priesthood of God and ordained them prophets, seers, revelators, and priests and teachers unto my people. And I gave them power to baptize in my name and to confer the gift of the Holy Ghost, which gift I pour out upon all who are worthy of the same — showing forth works of faith and repentance. And to all those who receive these things of which I have spoken and endure to the end will I give eternal life with me and my Father in my Father's kingdom, for I am the way, the truth, and the life, and no one cometh unto the Father but me. For this cause I established, through my servant Joseph Smith, Jr., the only true and living church upon the face of the whole earth with all the keys and powers and ordinances of the Holy Priesthood for the salvation of mankind, being the same church that I established through Peter, James, and John in the meridian of time, and it was lost through apostasy and a falling away. And this priesthood and this power, which was lost, I reestablished in these last days through my servant Joseph. And this priesthood and this power have continued with my last day church, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, through a succession of prophets until the present day. Wherefore, I, the Lord God will not be mocked, for verily, I say unto you that I have seen the wickedness and the abominations of my people in these last days, even all the house of Israel, for they have rejected the new and everlasting covenant, even the Book of Mormon, and they have not heeded the words of mine annointed prophets who cry unto them Repent ye, Repent ye of all your idolatries, and your abominations, and your secret combinations, wherein ye murder to get gain; and my people will not hear. Therefore, I, the Lord God take away even the light which they have. And I hide up the true prophets who are still among them. And I give them false prophets who speak vain and foolish and lying words unto them. And the fullness of priesthood keys, authority and power, I bestow upon another who is in their midst and they know him not, unto whom rightly belongs the priesthood and the keys of the kingdom for an ensign, and for the gathering of my people in the last days. Nevertheless, I am a God of perfect mercy, justice, and order, therefore, a portion of priesthood keys and power to perform outward ordinances I leave with them for a short time, for my spirit has not wholly ceased to strive with them. For I have granted unto them an interim period of time to choose whom they will serve, and whom they will follow and obey, even as I did when I annointed David to be king over Israel by the hand of my prophet Samuel while Saul continued king for a time by the voice of the people. As also with the Jews when I walked and ministered among them, I accepted a portion of their sacrifices and outward ordinances for an interim period of time, but that space of time came to an end, for others were annointed in their stead, and the interim time was granted for them to choose a new and everlasting covenant. So it is now. One who is mighty and strong I have ordained in the stead of him who was ordained of God. For he, who was ordained of God and is sustained by the people, has acted deceitfully and is lifted up in the pride of his heart, and he has rejected the fullness of my gospel, even the new and everlasting covenant, and he seeks the praise of the world and exalts himself, and he leads the children of the promise with a flaxen cord down to their destruction. Wherefore, the cup of my wrath and indignation is nearly full to overflowing, for there has never been from the beginning of man upon the earth such great wickedness among the house of Israel, and among the inhabitants of the earth as there now is. And I, the Lord God hold in reserve a swift judgement against every worker of iniquity who will not repent while the day lasts; and lo, lo, I am even at the door. Yea, great and marvelous shall be the destruction of the wicked. Yea, a great and marvelous shall be the deliverance of my people. For I, the Lord God will deliver my people with a mighty hand. Yea, I will bring to pass my strange act, my unwonted act, to make all the glorying in the flesh a reproach. Yea, I will bring to utter shame and execration all those who exalt themselves. And all those who humble themselves before me, and who are not ashamed of me, and who glorify me in their flesh, will I lift up and clothe them in mine own power and in mine own glory, even that of the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost. Amen.

The Seven Diamonds Plus One Two

Study and Fellowship Society

Founded 21 September 1997

Statement of Intent and Purpose

The American Encyclopedic Dictionary defines the word "testament" as: "A covenant esp. between God and man." The world "covenant" is defined as: "A solemn and binding agreement." Definitions for the word "study" are: "1) application of the mind to the aquisition of knowledge by reading, investigation or reflection; 2) to examine or investigate carefully and in detail; 3) to think deeply, reflect or consider; 4) to apply oneself to the aquisition of knowledge by reading, investigation or practice. The word "fellowship" is defined as: "The condition or relation of being a fellow." Definitions for the word "fellow" are: "1) to make or represent as equal with another; 2) belonging to the same class or group, united by the same occupation, interests, etc; being in the same condition: fellow students, citizens, etc.; fellow sufferers."

In light of these definitions and with that portion of the Holy Spirit which dwells within us, we, the founders of this society make the following statement:

The intent and purpose of The Seven Diamonds Plus One — Testaments of Jesus Christ — Study and Fellowship Society is: To examine carefully and in detail the covenants between God and man as contained in the Testaments of Jesus Christ that are herein set forth; and to think deeply upon, to reflect and consider how we (individually and together) may fulfill the solemn and binding agreements that we have entered into with our God, and to practice — to perform all that we have covenanted to do that in so doing God might thereby bless us according to all that He has covenanted to do. In other words, to associate together as members of this society, in full fellowship and brotherly love, being equal in the temporal things of this earth that we might also be equal in the eternal things of heaven, being fellow sufferers for the testimony of Jesus Christ — together mourning, weeping, fasting, praying, rejoicing, testifying, and singing praises unto God, lifting one another up in all things and thus, "living after the manner of happiness."

Immanuel David Isaiah Hephzibah Eladah Isaiah

Thus saith the Lord God, even Jesus Christ, who speaketh unto you, wherefore, give heed to all my words and trifle not with sacred things, for I say unto all, both young and old, both rich and poor, both learned and unlearned, yea, I speak unto all men in every nation, in every land, and among all peoples, that I, your Lord and your God, inspired my servant Immanuel David Isaiah, by the power of the Holy Ghost, to write the Statement of Intent and Purpose for The Seven Diamonds Plus One — Testaments of Jesus Christ — Study and Fellowship Society. Verily, verily, I say unto all the world, that each of The Seven Diamonds Plus One, which are set forth in the Statement of Intend and Purpose, are most precious in my sight, even as each of the souls of the children of men are most precious in my sight. For I say unto you that each of The Seven Diamonds Plus One has come forth by the power of God, even be revelations and by the power of the Holy Ghost, which inspired the hearts and minds of my faithful and chosen ones, to bring forth the fullness of my everlasting gospel, even from Adam unto Enoch and from Enoch unto Noah and from Noah unto Abraham, Issac and Jacob and from Abraham, Issac and Jacob unto Moses and from Moses unto Jesus Christ and from Jesus Christ unto Peter, James and John and from Peter, James and John unto Joseph Smith, Jr. and from Joseph Smith, Jr. unto Immanuel David Isaiah and from Immanuel David Isaiah unto the end of the earth. I am Jesus Christ, the Redeemer and Savior of the world, even the word of truth and the light of truth, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world, and this is my light which shines in and through The Seven Diamonds Plus One, for they are they which testify of me. For I, even Jesus Christ, descended below all things that I might be lifted up above all things, that I might draw all men unto me. Verily, verily, I say unto you, that this is my light and my love and my glory, that I lift up all who will come unto me, that they may be where I am, that we may be one, even as I and the Father are one, that they may be in me and I in them, even as I am in the Father and the Father in me, that we may be one. Yea, follow my light and come unto me. Follow my light which shines in and through The Seven Diamonds Plus One, for therein shines the testimony of my true and faithful ones who testify of me by the power of the Holy Ghost, which is the light of truth and the word of truth, even Jesus Christ who speaketh unto you. Whoso hath an ear, let him hear! For within my church the wheat and the tares grow together, and the time of the harvest has come, wherein I now begin to gather out the wheat from among the tares against the day of burning, which must shortly come to pass, wherein the tares that are left shall be bundled and bound and burned. For I will purge and sanctify my church from all iniquity, even as if by fire, that I may receive her unto myself, pure and spotless and holy. Whoso hath an ear, let him hear! The Seven Diamonds Plus One — Testaments of Jesus Christ — Study and Fellowship Society is where my true disciples will be gathered in against the day of burning, for it is The Church of the Firstborne, even the society of heaven, and the sanctified, and the redeemed of God. It is the true and living Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in its purified and exalted state. Wherefore, it is I, the Lord your God who is the righteous judge and knowein my sheep. Fear not man who is as the grass which wanes before the flame. I alone see and know the hearts of men, and I alone know which are the wheat and which are the tares, and I give unto those of humble heart and contrite spirit, who earnestly desire and seek to have my knowledge and my wisdom and my love and my righteous judgement, the ability to discern between the way of the wheat and the way of the tares, or, in other words, between the kingdom of heaven and the kingdoms of this world. These are the mysteries of Godliness, and a fullness of my knowledge and my wisdom and my love and my righteous judgement and only to be obtained through the holy priesthood of God and the ordinances thereof. And in every dispensation of priesthood authority and power and blessings upon the earth there has been and is a corruption and a perversion in the priesthood. For Satan doth creep in unawares and doth sow tares among the wheat. Hear oh heavens and give heed oh earth! For it is through this corruption and perversion in the priesthood of God that he who is expert at putting on all of the appearances of righteousness, to deceive the very elect if it were possible, doth creep in unawares to destroy my flock and scatter my sheep. Therefore, I, the Lord God have given The Seven Diamonds Plus One to light your way that ye be not deceived. And if you have these Seven Diamonds Plus One in your heart, you will have my heart and my righteous judgement to discern and to know and to love and to be wise and to be even as I am. But beware and give heed, oh man! That ye be nor lifted up in the pride of your heart to revile the things of God, for I say unto you that the least of these Seven Diamonds Plus One, or that which is considered the least in the eyes of the world, is of far greater worth and is much more precious than all of the combined knowledge and wisdom and wealth and substance of the whole world and the corruptibleness thereof. Judge not these things unrighteously but look ye to them that ye might judge aright and not be deceived, for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat : Because straight is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Yea, give careful heed to all my words, and do not rest the scriptures to your own understanding and put darkness for light and light for darkness, and call evil good and good evil, or by and by and unawares ye find yourself bound up as a tare, having despised the words of plainness, and having reached beyond the mark, and having wasted the days of your probation, and having put your trust in man and in the arm of flesh; and having persecuted the humble followers of Christ and having crucified your Lord and Savior unto yourselves afresh, and ye find yourself bound to be burned instead of gathered to be saved, because ye did not search and seek with humble heart and contrite spirit all my words unto you. Amen. Therefore, search these things, even The Seven Diamonds Plus One — Testaments of Jesus Christ, for they are faithful and true. Yea, take the Holy Spirit for your guide and trust in no man, except he hath the gifts and fruits of the spirit, and the love of God in him. Yea, put your trust in him who is mighty to save, that he may gather you as a mother hen doth gather her chicks under her wing that ye might be saved in the everlasting kingdom of God, to go in and sit down and no more go out. All praise, honor and glory be unto our Eternal God, who hath given us his Holy Son and the words of eternal life, that leadeth our souls in a straight course through the mists of darkness, and into the light and love and presence of Jesus Christ, to sing praises unto our Eternal God and His Christ forevermore. I so testify in the name of him whose servant I am, even Jesus Christ. Amen.

Woe unto ye, scribes and pharisees, ye doctors and lawyers and priests, who wear the habiliments of the priesthood, even as ravening wolves in sheeps clothing, hypocrites! Ye are a generation of vipers, and how can ye escape the damnation of hell, for ye give fine speeches but your works are the works of darkness. Did I not testify unto you, by the mouth of my latter-day prophet Ezra, that the whole church was under condemnation because they did not receive the new and ever-lasting covenant, even the Book of Mormon? And what is the covenant of the Book of Mormon? Is it not to care for the widow and the fatherless, and to succor to the needs of the poor, the sick, and the afflicted? Is it not to demand justice and to stand up for the oppressed? Is is not to stand as a witness for me, even Jesus Christ, in all things, and in whatsoever circumstances ye are in? I ask you, have ye done these things? I say unto you, ye have not! For the way was given unto you to discern and to know the secret combinations in your midst, who for power and gain and popularity and to satisfy all the lusts of the flesh, oppress and afflict and slay the children of Israel. I will give unto you an ensample in this thing that ye might see and hear and understand, and repent and come unto me, and be healed of your blindness of mind and your hardness of heart and the sickness of your soul. I gave unto you The Word of Wisdom, that ye, through obedience, might receive health in your navel and marrow in your bones, and run and not be weary and walk and not faint, and find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures, and I, the Lord, gave unto you a promise that the destroying angel would pass you by as the children of Israel and not slay you. Wherefore, I testified through my prophets Joseph Smith and Brigham Young that when ye are sick, ye should not seek unto doctors and the wisdom of the world, but rather ye should exercise faith in me and minister one to another, and with wisdom use herbs and fruit and mild food and tender care that ye might be healed. Hearken and rejoice! Oh ye children of Israel, for in these last days I have revealed many glorious truths that shed far greater light and truth upon my Word of Wisdom and my laws of health. Wherefore, I, even Jesus Christ, appeared unto my servant William J. Gonzalas as he lay dying and I healed him, and I told him that he would with his own hand write a book, and I told him that the name of the book would be The Golden Seven Plus One. And lo, my servant William was the scribe for my servant C. Samuel West whom I raised up to be an Elias in these last days to teach and to testify many glorious truths that shed far greater light and truth upon my Word of Wisdom and my laws of health, and the book, The Golden Seven Plus One, was given by the power of the Holy Ghost unto Samuel, and by the power of my spirit he received it, and my servant William wrote all that Samuel spoke by the power of the Holy Ghost, and thus, they finished the book, The Golden Seven Plus One, and it came forth by my power. And I, even Jesus Christ, will bring forth my great and marvelous work in these last days, and I declare unto all the world, and unto all the house of Israel that I, the Lord your God, brought forth the book, The Golden Seven Plus One, that I might thereby prepare a people and raise them up, and bring them forth to live upon the earth in peace, without pain or disease and with no poor among them. Wherefore, my servant Samuel has testified both long and loud, as with the sound of a trump, and he doth even now testify unto all the world that these things of which I have spoken are verily true. And thousands of my children have received the truth and have rejoiced in it, and I have healed them of all manner of disease and pain and affliction through their faith in me and in the truths brought forth through my servant Samuel. And lo, my servant Ezra Taft Benson testified unto many that Samuel was my servant and that the book, The Golden Seven Plus One, was inspired of God and that it was verily true. Wherefore, the Holy Ghost did witness unto many that the testimonies of my servants were true, but because of false traditions and unbelief and priestcrafts and secret combinations which blinded the minds and hardened the hearts of my people, my church did not receive their testimonies. Wherefore, an ever increasing desolation and scourge covers the whole earth, and hundreds of thousands and hundreds of millions of the children of men lie down in agony and suffer exceedingly, and die with all manner of incurable diseases and pain and sickness of every kind; and unspeakable horror and death by disease is poured out upon the children of men in an ever increasing desolation and scourge that fills the whole earth with the blood of those who cry out from the ground unto their Eternal God for the sword of vengeance to come down upon the heads of all those who profit and prosper and gain exceedingly from building up those secret combinations, which profit and prosper and gain exceedingly from the suffering and pain and disease and death of the children of men. Know ye not that this great plague of incurable diseases is a great pestilence and curse and judgement that rests upon all, and more especially upon all those who have been called of God to testify of me in all things and have not. For verily, verily, I say unto you that it must needs be that many of my children suffer these things, but woe unto you who cause the suffering and death of one precious soul by withholding the truth from them, and by not testifying of these truths unto all men when ye have known the truth, that thereby I might have healed my children. Yea, who unto all those who despise the truth and do not walk in the truth when the truth shines as bright and glorious as the noon day sun, but because of blindness of mind and hardness of heart, ye will not see and hear and understand, and repent, and come unto me, that I may heal you. Know ye not that all disease and pain will most assuredly be done away? For I will most assuredly raise up a people to live on this earth in peace, without pain or disease, and with no poor among them. And lo, it will not be done by the wisdom of the world or by the precepts and learning of men, but it will be done by strict obedience to all my laws of health and to all my commandments, and to all my Words of Wisdom unto you. Yea, Hear oh heavens! And give heed on earth! The people I will raise up to live in peace upon the earth, without pain or disease and with no poor among them, will live by every word that proceedeth forth from the mouth of God. And they will be my people, even a peculiar and chosen people unto me for they shall be mine own people. Is not this according to the promise I have given unto the children of Israel in my Word of Wisdom, that the destroying angel shall pass them by and not slay them, and they shall have health in their navel and marrow in their bones, and they shall run and not be weary and walk and not faint, and they shall have great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures? How long, oh man, will ye persist in seeking the praises of men and the world that ye may be popular and profit thereby, and ye care not for the poor, and the sick, and the afflicted of my people? How long, oh man, will ye persist in putting on a great show of righteousness when inwardly ye are filled with all manner of abominations and iniquity? Yea, did not my prophet Ezra Taft Benson testify boldly unto all the world, both long and loud, as with the voice of a trump, testifying of all those secret combinations, who even now, at this time, seek to overthrow the freedom of all nations and the whole earth, and even now, by their fine words, and their secret works, and by the sword, reign with blood and horror upon the earth. Yeah, and lo, they sit enthroned at the heads of all the governments of the earth in this the day of their power. And this promised land of the United States of America is the seat of untold depravity and idolatry and murder and secret combinations. And because of exceedingly great pride and self-righteousness and exceedingly strong secret combinations, this nation of the United States of America is the most wicked and depraved of all the nations of the earth. And this nation of the United States of America seeks, in concert with all the rest, to bring the whole earth into complete subjection, and the iron yoke of bondage and servitude and misery and death. And all this for power and gain and popularity and to satisfy all the lusts of the flesh. Have ye testified against these things? I say unto you, ye have not! But rather, ye uphold them and build them up, and put your truth in man and in the arm of flesh to deliver you and to save you instead of he who is your Savior, your Redeemer, your Righteous Judge, and your Wise Eternal Friend, even Jesus Christ, who speaketh unto you, who is mighty to save and deliver. Will ye not now hearken and obey, and forsake all your works of darkness that the people of Nephi and the Jaredites were destroyed after having great blessings bestowed upon the them even as ye yourselves have had great blessings bestowed upon you! Know ye not that Moroni testified unto you in the Book of Mormon that whatsoever nation shall uphold such secret combinations to get power and gain until they shall spread over the nation behold, they shall be destroyed for the Lord will not suffer that the blood of his saints, which shall be shed by them, shall always cry unto him from the ground for vengeance upon them and yet he avenge them not. Wherefore, O ye Gentiles, it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you, that thereby ye may repent of your sins, and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you, which are built up to get power and gain — and the work, yea, even the work of destruction come upon you, yea, even the sword of the justice of the Eternal God shall fall upon you, to your overthrow and destruction if ye shall suffer these things to be. Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you; or wo be unto it, because of the blood of them who have been slain; for they cry from the dust for vengeance upon it, and also upon those who built it up. For it cometh to pass that whoso buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the devil, who is the father of all lies; even that same liar who beguiled our first parents, yea even that same lair who hath caused man to commit murder from the beginning; who hath hardened the hearts of men that they have murdered the prophets, and stoned them, and cast them out from the beginning. Wherefore, I commanded Moroni to write these things that evil may be done away, and that the time may come that Satan may have no power upon the hearts of the children of men, but that they may be persuaded to do good continually, that they may come unto the fountain of all righteousness and be saved. And if ye know these things, why have ye not taught them? It is because ye are even as Moroni foresaw, for I showed you unto him, and he knew your doing, and he know that ye do walk in the pride of your hearts; and there are none save a few only who do not lift themselves up in the pride of their hearts, unto the wearing of very fine apparel, unto envying, and strifes, and malice, and persecutions, and all manner of iniquities; and your churches, yea even every one, have become polluted because of the pride of your hearts. For behold, ye do love money, and your substance, and your fine apparel, and the adorning of your churches, more than ye love the poor and the needy, the sick and the afflicted. O ye pollutions, ye hypocrites, ye teachers, who sell yourselves for that which will canker, why have ye polluted the holy church of God? Why are ye ashamed to take upon you the name of Christ? Why do ye not think that greater is the value of an endless happiness than that misery which never dies — because of the praise of the world? Why do ye adorn yourselves with that which hath no life and yet suffer the hungry and the needy and the naked and the sick and the afflicted to pass by you and notice them not? Yea why do ye build up your secret abominations to get gain, and cause that widows should mourn before the Lord, and also orphans to mourn before the Lord, and also the blood of their fathers and their husbands to cry unto the Lord from the ground, for vengeance upon your heads? Behold the sword of vengeance hangeth over you; and the time soon cometh that he avengeth the blood of the saints upon you, for he will not suffer their cries any longer. Will ye persist in seeking for a sign that these things are true when all things, both in the heavens above and in the earth below, do witness and testify that these things are verily true? Yea, awful is your situation, for the sword of justice hangs over you and the ax is laid at the root of the tree, and every tree that will not bring forth good fruit will be hewn down and cast into the fire. And only those who are not ashamed of me will inherit the earth. And all whoredoms and priestcrafts and idolatries and shining images will be swept away, even Babylon the great shall fall and crumble to the dust, and great and marvelous shall be the fall thereof. Awake! And arise! Oh Israel! Shake yourselves loose from the awful chains which bind you. Awake! And arise from the dust and wash yourselves clean and clothe yourselves in the garments of truth and put on the whole armor of righteousness and go to with your might to testify boldly, as with the voice of a trump, both long and loud, with humble heart and contrite spirit that my words are faithful and true. And all those who seek me and find me and fight for me in the last great battle, I will cloth in mine own power and in mine own authority to stand against all the powers of darkness and all the fiery darts and shafts in the whirlwind wherein Satan and his demonic hosts rage. Yea, take the Seven Diamonds Plus One into your heart that ye be not deceived, and take the Holy Spirit for your constant companion that your faith fail not, and hearken unto my true and living prophets who have my mantle of light and truth and love. Though the whole world seeks their destruction and yours and ye are hated and despised, mocked and scorned, ridiculed and condemned, and counted as dross and refuse upon the face of the earth, for even so they hated my true prophets from the very beginning, and they cast them out and stoned them, and killed them. And even I, the Savior of the world, was hated by mine own and was taken and crucified upon the cross and suffered and died for all, and I rose again the third day with healing in my wings. Even the wings of my power to heal and make whole all those who come unto me. It is the power given me of the Father. It is the power of the resurrection. It is the power of eternal lives. And it is the power I desire to give unto you through The Seven Diamonds Plus One that ye may come to know me and be even as I am. This is life eternal that ye might know the only true and living God and Jesus Christ whom he hath sent. I am Jesus Christ whom he hath sent. I am Eternal life. I am the resurrection. I am the life. And no man cometh unto the Father but by me. I alone have the power given me to heal and to make whole all those who come unto me, and I alone give my power to my true and faithful servants. Whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my true servants, it is the same. Amen.

Shall I, the Lord God of heaven and earth, withhold blessings from mine own children? I cannot, for even as the gentle summer rains fall softly down upon the mountains, my blessings flow down and water and make fruitful and green every living thing that lives and grows. And ye, who are my children, the workmanship of mine own hand, I delight to bless, even as a tender mother does the suckling babe upon her breast, and the contented child upon her lap, and the growing young one standing close within her arms. Wherefore, I, the the Lord God caught up into the heavens my daughter Betty J. Eadie, ? and gave into her heart the mysteries of my love, and sent her back to earth to write the book, Embraced By The Light, and I commanded her to testify to all the world the wonders of my love. I chose her who is a woman, a sister, a daughter, a mother, for this great and marvelous task that you, my children, might know my love which beats warmly within a mother's heart, in the heart of a woman. For all women are given special gifts to nurture, teach, and love my children but each of my daughters must, with great care, protect and develop these gifts or they will be lost. I the Lord God created man and woman to be one flesh that they as one, might bring forth children and raise them up unto me. Wherefore, it is to fulfill the measure of their creation that a man and woman are joined together; and if they are faithful and obedient in all things, and are valiant in the testimony of Jesus Christ and they receive all things from my hand, even from those having this authority, they are sealed up together as one throughout all eternity. This is the new and everlasting covenant of marriage according to the order of the highest degree of the celestial kingdom and the holy Melchizedek Priesthood of God. This is in fulfillment of the promise I gave unto Abraham, and unto all the house of Israel, and unto all the children of the promise, whether by blood or adoption, all are heirs who receive me and keep all my commandments, saith your God, even Jesus Christ, who speaketh unto you. This is the covenant and promise of eternal life, even eternal lives, even endless lives, for they have no end. Wherefore, I speak of these things again out of the heavens, of which I have spoken of before, that ye may know that the hour has come and is at hand that I now make bare my holy arm in the eyes of all nations. Yea, the day of my power is at hand. For behold, I restored the power of my priesthood and the fulness of my gospel and my true and living church through my servant Joseph, and since that time there have been only a few who have walked in my power and in the fulness of my gospel and priesthood ordinances. For, from the very beginning of this dispensation, my church and my people refused my law of consecration that they were commanded to obey and would not walk in it. Wherefore, it was taken away and they were cursed. For having refused the law, they could not have the blessing, and instead received a lesser law and a lesser blessing. Furthermore, it was because my people and my church continued in their disobedience to consecration that their enemies came upon them to destroy them. And my prophets sought with great diligence to restore the law unto them but the people and the church would not receive it. And in consequence of their continued disobedience, I, the Lord God took away from my church the fulness of the new and everlasting covenant of marriage, and I commanded them to have one wife only. Wherefore, they received a lesser law and a lesser blessing. Nevertheless, I, the Lord God am merciful and just and I know the hearts of my children, and I restore every blessing lost to them so long as they sin not against the Holy Ghost. Wherefore, if ye have not charity, ye have no promise, and ye are cut off! Hearken, oh my people, for I say unto you that the law of consecration is my law of charity, and it is the very foundation of my gospel and the very cornerstone of my eternal kingdom. For behold, it is through obedience to the law of consecration that, I, the Lord God humble the rich, that I might lift up the poor of my people, that thereby all envying, strife, malice whoredoms and priestcrafts and secret combinations are done away. And pride is done away and my people live in peace, and there is no lying or stealing or murdering, and my people are blessed and receive a multiplicity of blessings, even an eternal weight of glory and joy and eternal happiness. Yea, the law of consecration is my law of charity, and it is the fulfillment of all my laws, even the new and everlasting covenant, wherein every worthy son and daughter who obey all my laws may receive every blessing, both in time and throughout eternity. Wherefore, I say unto all that there are many more of my daughters who are found worthy of every blessing than there are of my sons, and wherein shall I bless my daughters with every blessing except in the fullness of the new and everlasting covenant? For it is the nature and disposition of almost all men, as soon as they get a little authority, as they suppose, they will immediately begin to exercise unrighteous dominion. Hence, many are called but few are chosen. Wherefore, take heed, and judge not that ye be not judged, for all men are born with the nature and disposition to do good and are created in he image and likeness of God. And it is because of the great and eternal weight of responsibility that rests with the priesthood of God, with all the keys, powers, rights and blessings thereof, that great are the temptations to exercise unrighteously that which is given. And it is the nature and disposition of almost all women, when they have a worthy bearer of the priesthood at their head, to be submissive, obedient, and faithful to all that I the Lord God ask of them, and to nurture and love my children with all tenderness and natural affection; and to teach them knowledge and wisdom and virtue and Godliness. This is the order of heaven; and even my son David, who was after mine own heart in all things except wherein he sinned with Bathsheba and Uriah, lost his wives which I had given unto him and they were given to another; nevertheless, I am merciful and just and left not his soul in hell, and made him a ministering angel unto those who are worthy of a far greater glory. And his priesthood I gave unto another who is called David, even Immanuel David Isaiah, even my righteous right hand whom I have raised up to be a light and a covenant unto my people, to bring to pass the restoration of all things spoken of by the mouth of all my holy prophets from the very beginning, and to bring about a fulfillment of the work that my servant Joseph Smith, Jr. commenced in this the dispensation of the fullness of times. Wherefore, as I said, my church is left with a portion of priesthood keys and power to perform outward ordinances; for the inward ordinances are the sealing powers of eternal lives and eternal blessings by the Holy Spirit of promise, and are conditioned upon obedience to all my laws, otherwise, they are left with only empty rituals, having no efficacy or power. Nevertheless, I am merciful and just and I will honor their outward performances with my sealing power inasmuch as they do not commit the unpardonable sin, which is to sin against the Holy Ghost, and this I will do for an interim period of time. Wherefore, the whole church is cursed for breaking the new and everlasting covenant of my gospel, which is the oath and covenant of my holy priesthood, which is: my people shall live by every word that proceedeth forth from the mouth of God, otherwise they have no promise. Amen.

A revelation from God unto David, commencing in the year before the death of Ezra Taft Benson and continuing after his death. As I was ministering in the holy temple of God, performing the ordinances of the holy endowment, the Lord God spoke unto me saying, my son David, thy sins are forgiven thee, for I have seen the faithfulness in testifying of me and in doing all that I have asked of thee. I say unto thee, David, that thy offerings and thy sacrifices are accepted of me, and thou art found worthy, through the blood of the Spotless Lamb, to do a far greater work than that which thou hast hitherto done. Yea, I have called thee and chosen thee from before the foundation of the world, for even as I chose Abram and named him Abraham, and even as I chose Jacob and named him Israel, even so I have chosen thee, David, my son; and I name the Immanuel David Isaiah, for thou wast foreordained to be a light upon a hill, an ensign to the nations, a sign and a portent in Israel. Then I cried out, Oh Lord! How can this be, for I am unlearned and slow of speech, and I am the least among all thy servants, for thou knowest my weakness, oh Lord! And the Lord answered me saying, fear not man whose arm is flesh, for I give thee weaknesses that ye might be humble and know that it is I, the Lord your God, who is they strength, and I shall make weak things strong unto thee. Yea, I shall make thee mighty and strong, as the arm of the Lord. And lo, lo, I shall give unto thee spokesmen to speak for thee. Yea, I shall give unto thee one hundred and forty and four thousand spokesmen to declare all my words which I shall give unto thy mouth and they shall testify of me to all the world as with the voice of thunder, and by the still small voice, to shake the whole earth by the power of my spirit. Wherefore, Immanuel, my friend, I give into thy hands the keys of my kingdom, to establish it and to build it up, from its foundation, walls and gates to the celestial ceiling thereof. For I say unto thee that I shut the mouth of my prophet Ezra who held the keys of my kingdom because my people would not abide his testimony. And the wolves came prowling at the gate to take the kingdom by force. Yea, they did outwardly feign support and pretended to uphold my prophet Ezra but inwardly they accused him of treachery because he testified against their weakness. And lo, they are the treacherous ones and they seek to enter in by another way and to pass by the Shepherd of Israel who stands at the gate. Therefore, I took my prophet Ezra unto myself. And the wolves at the gate pretend to the same power and authority that Ezra walked in, but it is taken from them, and I gave the keys of priesthood power and authority that Ezra held into thy hands, Oh Immanuel! Wherefore, a veil of darkness has fallen over my people and the light is taken from them, and my people mourn the lose and their hearts lament, and they desire to have the light back again, but it is taken away! It is taken away! And I, the Lord God, hid up my true servant Immanuel in the wilderness, and he is in their midst and they know him not. Then I cried out, Oh Lord! Because I am unlearned and slow of speech, the children of men will mock me and hate me, and they will not receive thy words from my mouth. And the Lord spoke unto me saying, my grace is sufficient for all who are humble and meek and lowly in heart, as a little child, for I am humble and meek and lowly in heart, as a little child. And whosoever will receive me, will receive my servant whom I have sent. And unto all those who mock thee and hate thee and who will not receive my words from my mouth, I will bring down upon their heads great sorrow and shame and anguish of soul, and if they repent not, I will destroy them from off the face of the earth. Yea, I will destroy them even as I destroyed all the inhabitants of the earth in the days of Noah when the people would not repent; and they mocked Noah and hated him and would not hearken unto my words from Noah's mouth. Therefore, I destroyed them from off the face of the earth. And I saved and delivered Noah and his family alive. And I will save and deliver thee and thy family alive, Oh Immanuel! And I will save and deliver all those who follow my light and who walk in all of my covenants, and they shall live long and peaceably upon the earth. And lo, my servant shall be taken by the enemies of righteousness and they will seek to take away his life. And they will marr my servant nigh unto death, but they will not take away his life, and I will heal him; that the words of Isaiah might be fulfilled. My servant, being astute, shall be highly exalted; he shall become exceedingly eminent: just as he appalled many — his appearance was marred beyond human likeness, his semblance unlike that of men — So shall he yet astound many nations, rulers shutting their mouths at him — what was not told them, they shall see; what they had not heard, they shall consider. He shall see the toil of his soul and be satisfied; because of his knowledge, and by bearing their iniquities, shall my servant, the righteous one, vindicate many. I will assign him an inheritance among the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the mighty, because he poured out his soul unto death, and was numbered with the criminals — he bore the sins of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. Who has believed our revelation? On whose account has the arm of the Lord been revealed? Thus saith the Lord God Almighty, It is on my account that the arm of the Lord is revealed. A Am the Great Jehovah. I am Jesus Christ. I Am the Spotless Lamb. And thus shall my servant suffer for me, and he shall suffer in similitude of me; and thus shall he suffer for my people; that thereby I might lift him up, to be a light and a covenant to my people. And this is my covenant with thee, Immanuel, my friend, I shall make of thee a great nation, and thou shalt be a king and a lawgiver unto my people, for my righteousness shall be in thee and in thy seed after thee unto endless generations. And thy posterity shall be as the sands of the sea, and thy reign and thy dominions and thy rule shall be endless, without beginning of days or end of days. This is my covenant with thee and with thy seed. Amen. Wherefore, hearken all ye inhabitants of the earth, and all ye children of the house of Israel, for I say unto you that all the words of Isaiah, even all my words unto you, shall all be fulfilled. And I shall deliver my people by my mighty hand, and I shall, by my righteous right hand, build a New Jerusalem, and I shall establish my kingdom throughout the whole earth. See, I create new heavens and a new earth; former events shall not be remembered or recalled to mind. Rejoice, then, and be glad forever in what I create. See, I create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy. I will delight in Jerusalem, rejoice in my people, no more shall be heard there the sound of weeping or the cry of distress. No more shall there be infants alive but a few days, or the aged who do not live out their years; those who die young shall be a hundred years old, and those who fail to reach a hundred shall be accursed. When men build houses, they will dwell in them; when they plant vineyards, they will eat their fruit. They shall not build so that others may dwell, or plant so that others may eat. The lifetime of my people shall be as the lifetime of a tree; my chosen ones shall outlast the work of their hands. They shall not exert themselves in vain, or bear children doomed for calamity. For they are of the lineage of these blessed by the Lord, and their posterity with them. Before they call I will reply; while they are yet speaking I will respond. The wolf and the lamb will graze alike and the lion will eat straw like the ox; as for the serpent, dust shall be its food: there shall be no harm or injury done throughout my holy mountain, says the Lord. And as the new heavens and the new earth which I make shall endure before me, says the Lord, so shall your offspring and name endure. And New Moon after New Moon, Sabbath after Sabbath, all flesh shall come to worship before me, says the Lord. And they shall go out and look upon the corpses of the people who transgressed against me, whose worms do not die and whose fire shall not be extinguished. They shall be a horror to all flesh. Wherefore, I raised up my servant Avraham Gileadi and I inspired him by the power of the Holy Ghost to write the Book The Literary Message of Isaiah. And this I did that I, your Lord and your God might reveal unto you, by the hand of my servant, Avraham Gileadi, the literal message of Isaiah. And now behold, I say unto you again that ye ought to search these things. Yea, a commandment I give unto you, that ye search these things diligently; for great are the words of Isaiah. For surely he spake as touching all things concerning my people which are of the house of Israel; therefore, it must needs be that he must speak also to the Gentiles. And all things that he spake have been and shall be, even according to the words which he spake. And whosoever will hearken unto my words and repenteth and is baptized, the same shall be saved. Search the prophets, repenteth and is baptized, the same shall be saved. Search the prophets, for many there be that testify of these things. Amen.

A revelation from God unto Eladah, commencing in the year before the death of Ezra Taft Benson and continuing after his death. As I was ministering in the holy temple of God, performing the ordinances of the holy endowment, the Lord God spoke unto me saying, my precious daughter Eladah, thy sins are forgiven thee, for I have seen they faithfulness in testifying of me and in doing all that I have asked of thee. I say unto thee, Eladah, that thy offerings and thy sacrifices are accepted of me, and thou art found worthy, through the blood of the Spotless Lamb, to do a far greater work than that which thou hast hitherto alone. Yea, I have called thee and chosen thee from before the foundation of the world, for even as I chose Sarai and named her Sarah, even so I have chosen thee Eladah, my daughter; and I name thee Hephzibah Eladah Isaiah, which name being interpreted means My Delight is in Thee — God Adorneth — The Lord is Salvation — signifying that thou art highly favored and blessed among women, and thou wast foreordained to be the Mother of Zion, and the New Jerusalem, and of the Kingdom of God in this the dispensation of the fullness of times. Then I cried out Oh Lord! How can this be, for I am unlearned, and I have been hated and despised among the children of men ever since my birth? And the Lord answered me saying, Of a truth Hephzibah, my delight is in thee, and I say unto thee, thou art the most cherished angel in the heavens, and thou dost not need an earthly school for I will be thy teacher, and the heavens will be opened to thy view that thou mayest be taught from on high. And lo, Satan has hated thee from thy birth for he knoweth thy calling, and he has sought every means to destroy thee, and he has tempted all those whom thou lovest most to turn against thee, to destroy thee. Nevertheless, Satan's bounds are set and he cannot pass beyond them. For I have long heard thy prayers, my daughter Hephzibah, which have ascended up to me from the deep wellspring of thy tender heart, upon the fountain of thy tears; and I am moved, with all the Hosts of Heaven to plead fervently in thy behalf before the throne of mercy, justice, and grace. And know this, my daughter, that all thy suffering and anguish of soul has been for thy good and has given thee experience, and thou hast learned to detect the very most subtle appearances of evil, and to put all thy trust in me. Therefore, my daughter, be patient with those people who do not understand thy calling, for in a future day they will understand, and thine own mother shall weep upon thy neck and plead for thy forgiveness. And great shame and sorrow and anguish of soul shall pierce the hearts of all those who have hated and despised thee, mocked and scorned thee, ridiculed and condemned thee; and if they repent not, they shall be destroyed from off the face of the whole earth, saith thy Lord and thy God. For I knoweth thy heart, my daughter, for thou art after mine own heart in all things and thou doth delight to honor and glorify me in thine every thought, word, and deed. And it is thy greatest joy to love my children most affectionately and tenderly, and to teach them knowledge and wisdom and virtue and Godliness. And it is the greatest desire of thy heart to glorify thy God and to uplift and strengthen and inspire the human soul through the playing of inspired sacred music and by the life thou dost live. And thou dost love to sing the hymns of Zion, and a song of praise is continually in thy heart and upon thy lips. And thou dost delight in being meek and submissive and obedient and humble and of broken heart and contrite spirit, even as a little child. And I say unto thee, Hephzibah, thou didst most assuredly play glorious heavenly music on the pipe organs in the celestial courts on high. And thou didst associate with the Gods, even thy Heavenly Father and Mother and thy Savior, and all the noble and great ones, even thy husband Immanuel. And thou art known in the heavens for thy nobility and dignity of spirit and for thy deep and abiding love for all that is beautiful and holy and orderly and virtuous and true. And thou dost hate disorder and chaos and greed and enviousness and self-righteousness and lying and gossiping and gluttony and hypocrisy and pride and all that is false. Yea, thou dost hate sin and thou canst not tolerate it, even as I cannot tolerate sin in the least degree of allowance. Wherefore my daughter Hephzibah, thou and thy husband, Immanuel, have been trained up and taught most carefully by me in all the mysteries of Godliness and in all my power. Yea, thus saith the Lord thy God unto thee, by my mighty hand I have taken thee throughout the land, from shore to shore, and from city to city, and from year to year, without purse or script. And my humble followers among every race, kindred, tongue and people, who knew my light and have a testimony of me, have ministered to thy needs and have gone on their way to rejoicing. And thou didst testify of me, even Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Ghost, throughout the land, and thou didst play glorious sacred organ music to uplift and strengthen and inspire the souls of men; and the heavens were opened to thy view and thou hast had many glorious visions and dreams. And thou didst break forth into singing and sang the songs of redeeming love. And thou didst fast and pray continually. Yea, thee and thy husband, Immanuel, didst eat fruit only fourteen months; and thou didst eat fruits, vegetables, and sprouts only for seven months, and thou knowest the sanctifying and healing power of living all my laws of health and all my commandments unto you. Yea, thou didst have great strength to do many mighty works of faith throughout the land among all my children; for thou knowest I am no respecter of persons, saith the Lord. Yea, through thy great faith in me, thy Savior, thou hast come to know my power of protection and deliverance and providence, and thou hast come to know me. And thou knowest how precious are my lambs and how much I, the Good Shepherd, love them; and thou knowest the wolves that come among my lambs to devour them. And thou has fed my lambs and administered the words of eternal life unto them, and thou has provided a way for their deliverance and salvation. Therefore, my daughter, Hephzibah, thou art greatly blessed for thy faithfulness, and I, the Lord God, say unto thee, thou art called and chosen to represent Heaven and Heavenly Things, and to use all of thy talents and abilities to establish my Zion and to build up my kingdom upon the earth, and to testify of me in all things in whatsoever circumstances ye are in. Therefore, I adorn thee with the precious gifts of knowledge and wisdom and understanding and virtue and Godliness and Charity. And the greatest of these is charity, which is my pure love, and my charity never faileth. And all these gifts come by faith through The Seven Diamonds Plus One and by the power of the Holy Ghost. Therefore, Hephzibah Eladah Isaiah, thou art called and chosen to be a helpmeet unto my servant Immanuel David Isaiah, and to be his wise counselor and best friend, and to be submissive and obedient unto thy husband in all righteousness, and be a comfort and a strength and a companion to thy husband in every time of trial and affliction until the end. And all this that thou mayest receive glory and honor in serving thy husband, as unto thy Lord. This is the perfect order of heaven inasmuch as all things are done in pure love, and in obedience to the Holy Spirit, and in obedience to all my commandments. Wherefore, Hephzibah, my most cherished angel, thou wilt take into thy heart and home seven sisters, and thou wilt recognize them through the spirit as thy dearest and choicest friends from all eternity, and they shall bring thee great joy, even a multiplicity and an eternal weight of blessings and glory and eternal happiness. And lo, thou shalt be healed and made whole every whit, and thine own womb shall be opened, and thou shalt bring forth a son to sit upon the throne of his father David. And thou shalt take into thy heart and home seven times seven sisters, to love and care for; forty-nine precious jewels in thy crown, and thou art the jubilee of them all, first and last, for all are given unto them, for thou art a Queen, Oh Hephzibah! Wherefore, the gifts of agency and stewardship are inseparably connected and are given that ye might learn strict obedience to all my laws and commandments. And the Kingdom of Heaven may be likened unto a small rivulet that flows down from the mountain, and the small rivulet, being faithful and true in its course, is added upon and becomes a brook, and the brook continuing faithful in its course becomes a large stream, and by and by the large stream is added upon and becomes a mighty river, and the mighty river, moving steadily forward in its course, becomes an ocean which spreads forth in every direction and fills and covers the whole earth. Wherefore, my daughter, righteous desires are fulfilled upon the level at which thy faith is developed and when thy faith is made whole and unshaken in me, all thou dost need do is ask and it shall be given unto thee. Therefore, in mine own due time and according to my will for thee, and in fulfillment of all that thou dost righteously desire, thou shalt come unto me and feel the wounds in my hands and side and feet, and thou shalt kiss my feet and bath my feet with thy tears, and I shall lift thee up and embrace thee in mine arms, and thou shalt be healed and made whole every whit. And thou shalt be sealed up into the Church of the First Borne, and the Sanctified, and the Redeemed of God, forevermore. And thou shalt write and play glorious heavenly music thou wilt write and play to the glory and honor of the Eternal God and His Christ, even the Annointed Savior who speaketh unto thee. And this is my covenant with thee, Hephzibah, my friend, I shall make of thee a great nation, and thou shalt be a Queen and a wise counselor unto my people, for my righteousness shall be in thee and in thy seed after thee unto endless generations. And thy posterity shall be as the sands of the sea, and thy reign and thy dominions and thy rule shall be endless, without beginning of days or end of days. This is my covenant with thee and with thy seed. Amen. Hearken, O ye people, and open your hearts and give ear from afar; and listen, you that call yourselves the people of the Lord, and hear the word of the Lord and his will concerning you. Yea, verily, I say, hear the word of him whose anger is kindled against the wicked and rebellious; Who willeth to take even them whom he will take, and preserveth in life them whom he will preserve; Who buildeth up at his own will and pleasure; and destroyeth when he pleases, and is able to cast the soul down to hell. Behold, I, the Lord, utter my voice, and it shall be obeyed. Wherefore, verily I say, let the wicked take heed, and let the rebellious fear and tremble; and let the unbelieving hold their lips, for the day of wrath shall come upon them as a whirlwind, and all flesh shall know that I am God.

Comment on this story

And the Lord, even the Savior, shall stand in the midst of his people, and shall reign over all flesh. And they who are in the north countries shall come in remembrance before the Lord; and their prophets shall hear his voice, and shall no longer stay themselves; and they shall smite the rocks, and the ice shall flow down at their presence. And an highway shall be cast up in the midst of the great deep. Their enemies shall become a prey unto them, And in the barren deserts there shall come forth pools of living water; and the parched ground shall no longer be a thirsty land. And they shall bring forth their rich treasures unto the children of Ephraim, my servants. And the boundaries of the everlasting hills shall tremble at their presence. And there shall they fall down and be crowned with glory, even in Zion, by the hands of the servants of the Lord, even the children of Ephraim. And they shall be filled with songs of everlasting joy. Behold, this is the blessing of the everlasting God upon the tribes of Israel, and the richer blessing upon the head of Ephraim and his fellows. Awake and arise! Ye sons of Ephraim. For behold, in these last days I, the Lord, have raised up many mighty prophets among the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel and they walk among you, having great faith, yet they have not the priesthood of God and the fullness of the gospel which you have. And lo, they are in your midst and you know them not, and they walk in great faith with signs following. Yea, they have visions and dreams and they prophecy and work mighty miracles, for I am no respecter of persons, saith the Lord; and all these gifts come by faith. Therefore, by faith they receive power and authority to do many mighty works, though they have not the ordinances of salvation. And lo, the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel are scattered throughout the earth and more especially in the northern countries. Now answer me this, ye sons of Ephraim! How shall ye recover the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel, when their true prophets even now walk in greater power and authority than you who hold the priesthood of God? And this because of their great faith in me. For behold, their true prophets have received a lesser portion of light and truth than that which you have received, yet they walk in a greater portion of the light and truth which they have received. Therefore, they are faithful stewards and profitable servants. Therefore, they are given more light and truth and more power and authority to do mighty works of faith. While you, who have received a greater portion of light and truth, walk in a lesser portion of the light and truth which you have received. Therefore, you are unfaithful stewards and unprofitable servants. Therefore, even the light and truth which you have is taken away and you have less power and authority to do mighty works of faith. Hark and rejoice! For I say unto you, that I raised up my servant Rick Joyner unto the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel, and I gave unto him visions and dreams, and I revealed unto him many glorious truths which shed far greater light upon my true doctrine and upon the coming forth of my great and marvelous work in these last days. And behold, I command my servant Rick Joyner to write it in a book, and by the power of the Holy Ghost he wrote it and he named the book The Final Quest, and it came forth by my power. and lo, because the book, The Final Quest, sheds far greater light upon my true doctrine and upon the coming forth of my great and marvelous work in these last days, it is of great and eternal worth unto all the House of Israel and unto all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the Lord. And verily, I say unto all you who are of the blood and lineage of Ephraim, know ye not that you were lost and I recovered you? Yea, you are one of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel and I recovered you first that the promise might be fulfilled which I gave unto your fathers, Ephraim and Joseph, by the hand of their father Israel, who is Jacob. Therefore, you have had a great and eternal weight of blessings bestowed upon you according to the promise. Furthermore, there rests upon you the great and eternal honor and blessing and privilege and responsibility, if you are faithful, to recover all of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel — to gather them in from their long dispersion, even all the children of the promise, even all the House of Israel. Wherefore ye sons of Abraham, Issac and Jacob and Joseph and Ephraim, do you think you can walk in less power and authority than your fathers walked in and accomplish this mighty work, yea, this great and marvelous work? Do you think you can walk in less power and authority than Joseph Smith and Brigham Young walked in, who delivered my people with a mighty hand? For behold, I say unto you, ye sons of Ephraim, that you must walk in even greater power and authority than Joseph and Brigham. Yea, I say unto you that you must walk in even greater power and authority than I did when I walked and ministered among the Jews. For behold ye are my last day church in this the dispensation of the fullness of times. And you are called and chosen to represent me, even Jesus Christ, upon the earth, and therefore you must walk in my last day power and authority to bring forth my great and marvelous and mighty work. Even the restoration of all things spoken of by the mouths of Adam and Enoch and Noah and Abraham and Issac and Jacob and Joseph and Moses and Elijah and Isaiah and David and John the Baptist and I, Jesus Christ, and John the Beloved and Nephi and Alma and Moroni and the brother of Jared and Joseph Smith. And you my sons, Oh Ephraim! must needs accomplish a greater work than all those mighty prophets of God who went before you. For you are my last day church, which is called by my name, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and you must needs walk in my last day power and authority. For behold, ye are the sons of the noble birthright! Therefore I say unto you, yea, I command you, Oh Ephraim! Awake and arise! Shake yourself loose from the awful chains which bind you! Awake and arise and come forth out of Babylon and wash yourselves clean! And be clothed in the beautiful and holy garments of light and truth and put on the whole armor of righteousness and salvation, and take hold of the sword of my spirit and the word of God and come up, ye sons of Jacob, to the light upon a hill. Yea, come and lift up the ensign to the nations, yea, come and follow the sign and portent in Israel. Yea, come and partake of the waters of eternal life freely. And walk as the mighty sons of Jacob in the full power and authority of the Holy Priesthood of God. Yea, come listen to a prophets voice, even the voice of him whom I have sent, crying in the wilderness. Repent ye! Repent ye! for the kingdom of heaven is at hand! Yea, come listen to my servant Immanuel David Isaiah, for in him is my light and my covenant unto my people, even all the house of Israel, saith the Lord. Wherefore, if ye esteem him as not, yea, if you count my servant to be of no worth and the least among all my servants, then consider this. I, even Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, came unto mine own and mine own received me not. Yea, they counted me to be of no worth and the least among all the children of Israel, and I was taken by mine own and they crucified me upon the cross. Wherefore, ye sons of Jacob, if ye wait for another deliverer, ye must needs wait in vain and ye must needs be destroyed, even as the Jews, for they would not receive me and they waited in vain for another and they were destroyed, saith the Lord. Wherefore, ye have my words through my servant Immanuel David Isaiah, even my Righteous Right Hand. And the Holy Ghost doth witness unto you that it is I who speaketh unto you. I am the Spotless Lamb. I am the Great Jehovah. I am Jesus Christ, who am mighty to save and deliver. There, listen and obey. Amen.
