Michael Jackson Justice: The Living Among The Dead

God: Reconnect to Him

The Conspiracy against God is about "The Word", and the profaning of His Holy Name within us. Adam fell in the garden, breaking the direct connection to God. Jesus, the "last Adam" was a quickening Spirit, the Word made Flesh, and the only one with whom we can re-establish our relationship with God. Michael's story is still unfolding. He is the one who is, is not. But Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Many are trying to rewrite HIStory. We were given a help to instruct us. Learn more "here".

The Living Among The Dead


  

Bondage of Babylon






A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue."

"The desire of a man is his kindness: and a poor man is better than a liar."

"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."

Even though the topic today will be about something else, this subject fits into all of what we have spoken about so far.

If you love someone, you do not lie to them.  Not to avoid an argument, not to spare their feelings because in the long run, all they will remember was that you lied, and the cord of trust is broken.

Jesus said during his prayer to God “thy word is truth”.  Amen is the word that suffixes prayers and statements and prophecies throughout scripture and it represents the strength of that truth spoken, just as “selah” commands a moment of reverence.  Amen means “truth”.

Sometimes telling the truth is much harder when you anticipate the fallout, but it gets easier with each exercise of it.  When you see the fruit of the truth, even if you have to wait a bit, it is much more rewarding and there is no after taste.  The truth sets you free from bondage to the lie, and it nips the possible spread of a damaging  virus at the neck.

It is bad enough when a lie is spoken out of carelessness or impulse of defense; but there are those who lie willingly, for mischief or to purposely cause contention.  They are worse because they do not care of the consequences either to the recipient or themselves.  They dart in and out of the dark, striking with pins and blades until their victim is striking out at those closest to them, not knowing the source from which it comes.

It is imperative to stay focused on Christ; and not on the distraction of ill-meaning, malevolent workers.  Not everyone being used for such know they are being used.

You’re going to get tired of the fight; you will become weary and at times your anger will get the best of you.  Remember the reward and those for whom you are here to help.  Remember God has got this.   He’s already seen your trouble before it came upon you.  Remember that every trial is purifying you.  If He brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

"The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace."

There are times when you feel all you will be left holding is pieces, but it doesn’t matter.  Even if that is all you are left with, God can make whole children of Abraham out of those pieces.  And He will . . . as He has already foretold of the scattered remnant.

To those of you who lie so easily or to thwart responsibility consider this; whether those who condone it or worse, admire you for your craftiness are, or ever were  advocates for the truth.  They will feed your ego for a time, but your usefulness to them will eventually falter, and your lies will become your judge and prison.

Just remember there is no hiding from your deeds.  It is written within you on your own books – even your thoughts – the discerner of the thoughts and intent of the heart is “the Word” in the very blood that runs through you.

How do you think the record of scripture was written so cohesively?  God sees, he also hears.  All the books were made by Him and for now are a part of His library.  Think about the things you plan to do before you do them.  Consider the motives of those who coerce malfeasance.  It really is not worth it.

Now to the subject at hand . . .



Who Are The Dead?


There are two kinds of “dead” in scripture – those who are dead men walking, who are lost and there are the dead who sleep in the ground.

Those who baptize for the dead cite scripture and there is only one that even mentions such a thing:  It was written by Paul of Tarsus:

"When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.   29. Now if there is no resurrection, what will those do who are baptized for the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptized for them? 30 And as for us, why do we endanger ourselves every hour?"

This is what Paul asks those who are unconvinced that there is a possible resurrection.  The Reform Judaism religion does not believe in it;  At least not in general release.  Is there any reason to believe that Paul in saying this, commanded the practice?

There is no other evidence in scripture that any, even in the Old Testament, did Baptisms for the dead.  Even the Levite priests of the tabernacle of Moses, or the temple of Solomon did not wash and present offerings for the dead.

Paul himself states “what will those do who are baptized for the dead?”  Paul does not say “what will we do who are baptized for the dead” he says “those who are”.

This practice of baptizing for the dead was still being done by some of the children of Israel who adhered to some of the pagan rites from Egypt.  The Bible teaches that this practice does as much good as praying to God through any saint or name other than Christ Jesus.  It is of no effect.

Today only a small couple of sect’s practice baptisms for the dead, and the only (and largest) organization doing this that calls themselves Christian is the Mormon Church.

They have yet to justify this practice as “Christian”:

"One of the practices that sets the Coptic Church apart from most of the Christian world is that of proxy baptism for the dead.1 In order to understand the rationale for this ceremony, it is necessary to both establish its antiquity in Christianity and to discuss some of its antecedents in the ancient Egyptian religion.

It is true that, in other passages (Romans 6:3-5; Colossians 2:12), Paul spoke of baptism as symbolic of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ and of those who wish to follow him into a new life. Nevertheless, despite attempts by some of the early Church Fathers to give a symbolic meaning only to the passage in 1 Corinthians 15:29, the wording of the latter clearly implies proxy baptism." - Source, FairMormon.com



Yes, that passage in 1 Corinthians 15 does imply proxy baptism . . . but not by Christ’s apostles.  And the example was used by Paul to prove that resurrection was believed by more than just the early preachers of Christ’s teachings.

The author cites the other modern practitioners of proxy baptism (for the dead) as Egyptian Copts, but as we will learn, the “Copts” are not “Christian” they are esoteric/mysticism observers.

Egyptian/Christian Copts are Egyptian Orthodox (Catholic Orthodox) according to that link.  Early Egyptians did believe in resurrection and their ancient writings such as the “Book of the Dead” and “The Book of Breathings” were buried with some of their nobles.  In translations of these books, baptisms by proxy for the dead was practiced, evolving from ceremonies relating to the worship of Osiris.  Just as the children of Israel carried their pagan worship with them from Egypt, so the Copts have carried their ancient rites into their Christian beliefs.  Catholicism carries also many rites borrowed from Roman pagan worship and so on.

Two paragraphs down, the author states this:

"To my knowledge, only two Christian congregations have continued to practice proxy baptisms for the dead through the centuries. These are the Mandaeans of Iraq and Iran and the Copts of Egypt." - Source, Fairmormon.org


Mandeanism is a Gnostic ethnoreligion –

"Mandaeism or Mandaeanism (Modern Mandaic: מנדעיותא‎ Mandaʻiūtā; Arabic: مندائية Mandāʼīyah/Mandāʾiyyah) is a gnostic religion[1]:4 (Aramaic manda means "knowledge," as does Greek gnosis) with a strongly dualistic worldview. Its adherents, the Mandaeans, revere Adam, Abel, Seth, Enosh, Noah, Shem, Aram and especially John the Baptist, but reject Abraham, Moses and Jesus of Nazareth.[2][3]

They are Semites and speak a dialect of Eastern Aramaic known as Mandaic. They may well be related to the "Nabateans of Iraq" who were pagan, Aramaic-speaking indigenous pre-Arab and pre-Islamic inhabitants of southern Iraq " - Source, Mandaeism

If They revere Adam but reject Jesus of Nazareth, tell me how are they “Christian”?

Precursors to the sect:

The Elkasaites were a Judeo-Christian baptismal sect which seem to have been related, and possibly ancestral, to the Mandaeans (see Sabians). The members of this sect, like the Mandaeans, wore white and performed baptisms.   Mandaeans consider the holy spirit that is known as Ruha d-Qudsha in the Talmud and Bible to be an evil beingOutside of Mormonism, Mandaeism is the only religion known to practice proxy baptisms.” - Source, Mandaeism

Mormonism shares the same reverence for “Adam” the fallen, but have supplanted the Archangel Michael over Adam.  Since their doctrine is based on Egyptian sources (according to writings of Joseph Smith and Brigham Young), it is not hard to see where their doctrine of “proxy baptism” came from.

They believe in divine man/Adam being crowned king or priest.  They also practice “secrecy” rites as Masonic and Mormon and Judaism practice.  Note that according to that article, Mormonism shares proxy baptism of the dead only with one other religious sect and that is the pagan Mandaeist who believe that the “Holy Spirit” in the Bible is an evil being.

The Mandeans reject Jesus.  The Mormons believe that Adam/Michael and Jehovah created the earth and its people; and that Jehovah had a god over him, name “Ahman” (Ammon) or in their Book of Mormon, Elohim.  That should be enough for laymen Mormons to question why they share similar rites with a pagan religious sect.  It is not a Christ teaching, and it is found nowhere in practice in the Bible by the prophets of Christ.

Another source first mentions “baptism of the dead” in relation to Ancient Egypt cults worshiping Osirus.

"In Egypt, the Book of Going Forth by Day contains a treatise on the baptism of newborn children, which is performed to purify them of blemishes acquired in the womb. Water, especially the Nile's cold water, which was believed to have regenerative powers, is used to baptize the dead in a ritual based on the Osiris myth. " - Source, Bible.CA/Baptism

If you recall on our research on Mormonism (“Nineveh”, “Stirring of the Dragon”)  the Papyri which Joseph Smith allegedly purchased were found to be “burial” ceremonies and rites out of the “Book of the dead” and the “Book of breathings” among other crypt findings.

Mormons don’t actually baptize dead bodies, they baptize the dead by proxy.  A living person is baptized by proxy for the named dead person.  This was something they had talked my husband into taking part in a few weeks back.

According to scripture, the dead don’t have spirits because those go back to God upon death (Ecclesiastes 12:7).  The dead in Christ are “sleeping” in the earth.  Since you cannot confess when you are dead and you cannot consciously decide whether or not to “accept” a baptism on your behalf, how is this supposed to work?  The Holy Ghost does not “dwell” in dead people.

According to the Mormon site, Baptism for the dead is bestowed upon those who “accepted Christ” when they were alive but died before they were baptized.  However, controversies such as the Holocaust casualties and other war dead being baptized brought to attention the fact that they don’t even follow their own doctrine on baptizing, let alone the Bible.

If there are no rules for baptizing, and one can be “saved” regardless of what condition their soul was in when they died, then tell me . . . where is the incentive to live “Christ-like” before you die?

Perhaps there is another hidden objective to having living people get baptized “for the dead”?  The word “dead” was emphasized in the dream about “Eddie” and for those that have seen this before, I apologize for the repeat, but the angel told me “they don’t know they are already dead”.


"I had a dream this morning.  It was a quiet dream.  I was walking down a dirt road with a man I did not recognize.  He was maybe ten years older than me.  He had darker, short hair with grey in it.  He was wearing a very white dress shirt but no tie.  The collar was bigger than the styles you usually see today.  The first two buttons from the collar were open and the buttons at the cuffs were open, giving the sleeves a rather robe type appearance.

His pants were dress pants in white linen specked with hints of black or grey in the threads. They looked very airy and comfortable.  He was wearing loafers which were either dark brown or black and they looked worn.  The dust of the road was on them.

As we walked the man was quiet.  His hands were clasped behind his back and he walked as though we were on deep thought.  He almost looked as if he were concentrating.

To either side of the road we walked was nothing.  You could see forever.  All the fields had been harvested, but it was still warm.  I didn’t know what was there before, it was cut so close to the ground.  Wheat?  Maybe hay.

As we walked a sign came into vision.  As we got closer I saw it was one of those green signs that tells you how close you are to the next town.  I don’t recall the name of the town, but I do recall the “8 miles”.  I turned to my companion.

I just heard from Eddie”, he said to me quietly.  “Only six miles to go . . .”

I looked at the sign and felt I needed to correct him, “you mean eight don’t you?”

He tilted his head to the side and looked me in the eye.  I replied “The sign says eight.”

The man said to me calmly “Eddie only has six miles to go”.  And he smiled, almost in anticipation of seeing him.

I looked back at the sign, then looked behind me.  I looked back at my walking companion.  What was he telling me?  Six miles?  Six MONTHS?

I looked down at the dirt we were walking on.  It was powdery.  No moisture.  I turned back to my companion.

Does his family know?  We need to tell people!  Warn them!

My companion caught my thoughts.  He smiled with almost a fatherly smile, “Eddie’s fine.  I wouldn’t worry about him.  It’s the others you have to worry about.”  He cocked one eyebrow, “They don’t know.”

I looked at him and without speaking thought “that’s what I mean!”  But I didn’t say that because I heard before he said it what came next.

He said, “they don’t know they’re already dead.”

Posted June 1, 2012

The Bible says that he is called “The Amen”.  Amen means “truth”.  As it is written, they have blasphemed His Name:

"For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written."

They can take “Amen” and turn it into “Ahman” or “Amon” or “Ammon” and attach it to the children of “Ammon” and the Edomites and the Moabites who made the star of their god to build up as an image of their god.  They are attempting to replace the morning star with an image of it and still have “life”, but they are dead.  And there are a lot of people following them thinking they teach truth and that hurts more than you know.



Sealing Ceremonies Not What Christ Taught

The Mormons also believe that you can be “sealed” to your family or whatever family you go through the sealing ceremony with – for eternity.  This means they believe or teach that you are married to your husband in the resurrection, have the same family, etc . . .

Not only is this found nowhere in the Bible at all, the only “sealing” that goes on by mention other than the sealing of books and letters is that of the angel who seals the servants of God in their foreheads – that is the remnant that serves God by teaching others; the 144,000 in Revelation 7.  This remnant teaches throughout the world and makes it possible through the name of Christ Jesus, for the multitude that no man can number, to be saved.

Paul also talks about being “sealed” and those whom he is teaching being “sealed with the promise” in Ephesians 1:13.  Not everyone is sealed with being a servant of God, but the multitude is unlimited – these are those promised to Abraham, whom God promised from many nations.

When we die, there is no more law of man which means there is no more marriage.  We in Christ are all married to him – one with him and one with each other (John 17:11-22).

"For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.

3. So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man."

Our Maker is our husband, who calls us as a woman forsaken:

For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.  For the LORD hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God."

On Wikipedia the baptism for the dead is described as this:

Baptism for the dead, vicarious baptism or proxy baptism today commonly refers to the religious practice of baptizing a person on behalf of one who is dead—a living person receiving the rite on behalf of a deceased person.

Baptism for the dead is best known as a doctrine of the Latter Day Saint movement, which has practiced it since 1840. It is currently practiced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), where it is performed only in dedicated temples, as well as in several other current factions of the movement.

The modern term itself is derived from a phrase "baptised for the dead" occurring in one verse of the New Testament (1 Corinthians 15:29), though the meaning of that phrase is an open question among scholars." - Source, as described on Wikipedia


Some passages off the top of my head concerning the dead.

"I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living."

The angel in the tomb of Jesus addressed the women who came to anoint Jesus’ body, but was told was not among the dead.

"And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?   6. He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,"

Paul to the Romans writes that Jesus, the first born from the dead (Colossians 1:18), came in the flesh to taste death for every man (Hebrews 2:9), and arose that he might be Lord of both the living and the dead, so that those who die in Christ will be raised incorruptible (1 Corinthians 15:52).


"For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living."

A story in the gospel of Luke finds Jesus instructing he who would follow him, but wanted to go and bury his father first.  Jesus said -

"And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.   60. Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God."

Who are the dead?

From “The Mark Of Words

"In some tales, (for example, some versions of those of the golems of Chełm and Prague, as well as in Polish tales and version of Brothers Grimm), a golem is inscribed with Hebrew words, such as the word emet (אמת, "truth" in Hebrew) written on its forehead." - Source, Zucker, Robert (2007–2011). "17th Century". "Sefer Yetzirah" Time Line. Retrieved Feb/11/13. citing an anonymous 1630 manuscript concerning the Golem of Chelm. See also Introduction to "The Golem Returns" citing Johannes Reuchlin (1492).


- and to deactivate a golem is taking the “Aleph” out of the “emet”, changing the “truth” to “death”.

The golem could then be deactivated by removing the aleph (א) in emet,[5] thus changing the inscription from "truth" to "death" (met מת, meaning "dead"). - Source, Zucker, Robert (2007–2011). "17th Century". "Sefer Yetzirah" Time Line. Retrieved Feb/11/13. 

Emet = Truth
Amen =  Truth

Met = “dead”
Men = “dead”

The dead are those who do not have the truth.

The dead are those who have had removed the Aleph.

Jesus came to make a way from the dead to the living.

Jesus showed them “how to get their ‘A’ back”.  He is the only way to get the ‘A’ back, because Jesus was the “word made flesh”.



The Same Egyptian Bondage


In the Revelation of Jesus Christ given to John the apostle , a city “spiritually called Sodom and Egypt” is given as the place where the two witnesses are killed by the beast the comes up out of the pit.  Spiritually called, is the designation given for Sodom was destroyed in the time of Abraham because of the very things now going on today in the promotion of sexual promiscuity, sex trafficking even of children and gender-confusion.

Egypt in its spiritual designation pertains not the to geographic location, but to the resurrection of the yoke and bondage.  It is the same seduction using the same knowledge taught out of the same “mystic schools”, by the same predators of the souls of men.

Ancient mystery schools, secret mystery schools are but the organized instruction to the pets of the elite men of old who have proven themselves to their masters.  It is called “Mystery Babylon”.  The knowledge has been murderously protected by the Masonic Order who carry out the plans laid out by the Pharisees in the Babylon exile, who guarded it since their days in Egypt; and it goes all the way back to the Babylon pre-flood of Noah.

Zechariah, aside from the prophecy of the flying roll and the ephah, was also foretold of the Lord bringing again in the end times, the people out of the land of Egypt – Spiritual Egypt. 

Israel will be “sown” among the people – Israel, the “seed” which by Paul to the Corinthians is sown “not the body” but “the bare grain”, 1 Corinthians 15:57.

"And I will sow them among the people: and they shall remember me in far countries; and they shall live with their children, and turn again.   10. I will bring them again also out of the land of Egypt, and gather them out of Assyria; and I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon; and place shall not be found for them."

That Israel which has been sown among the nations and among the Gentiles, in the midst of many people (Micah 5:7-8), is the bare grain – the SEED, not the bodies.  Just as the prophet Isaiah was called to awaken the remnant among the multitude that would not hear him, and persecuted him, and threatened his life, so it is true in the end times, from Paul, to Michael, to the woman travailing in birth with the man child; the one of the twelve stars upon her head.



Help The Jews


Because Jesus was promised through the tribe of Judah; and the second child through the tribe of Joseph who’s stick is in the hand of Ephraim; the two will become “one in my hand” as the prophecy was given to Ezekiel (chapter 37:16-19). 

Judah was the target of the father of lies; the crooked serpent.  It is the people of Judah, and through them all of Israel which whom would be used to propagate the end times deception.

There is a small people behind closed doors that have been made privy to the actual playbook, and those have deceived their brothers, who unknowingly work to their own damnation.  It is those people that word came to me to help.

I realize that there may be the majority that will not hear me and will ridicule me, but within even the nobles practicing the religion of the Jews, there is a remnant that will remember.

Some of you may feel it as soon as you read this.  Something will spread throughout your chest and your heart will open just enough for God to show you the truth.

It is at that moment you must take to a quiet place alone and pray.  When you pray, you will pray in the name of Christ and you will ask God to purge your heart and forgive you of every sin written in you.  Let His Love in as Jesus was in the flesh.  You heard what Jesus did for you, now FEEL IT.

Let it wash over you and let God cleanse and purge you.  Tell Him everything and when you have spent every emotion and cried out every sin, offer yourself to Him and ask him, “Father, what is your will for me?  What will you have me do?”

As Peter, Stephen, John and Paul did for those elect in their time, so you must seek Baptism, following Christ in obedience.  You will remember.



The Captives Of Egypt


We can point fingers at the Mormons or the Copts, or the Mandeans or the Freemasons or the Rosicrucian’s, but the majority of the Christian Churches are also right back under the bondage of Egypt.  It is those calling themselves Christian without knowing their church and it’s true doctrines and its source that are in the most danger.

The same threat that infiltrated the early church identified in the letters of 2 Peter and Jude are the same ones who developed most of the doctrines of the present day Christian churches.  They are the ones responsible for injecting contention in interpretation.  They are the same Babylon-worshiping Jews who became Jesuits and developed schools of “Theology”.  Remember that “Theo” in the Greek translated to modern Hebrew is YHVH backwards – that is “the Name of God” in reverse.

Theo is a Greek word for “Mighty One” which can be attributed to any one or anything.  One might ask with the knowledge learned below, why any school to teach on “Christ” would be prefixed with the word “Theo”:


"
The true name of Satan, the Kabalists say, is Yahweh (GOD) reversed; for Satan is not a black god, but a negation of God.  For Initiates, this is not a Person, but a Force ..." [Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma , p. 102] 

Remember what we learned back in July?

Where Elohim is the Hebrew word with the English meaning of "Mighty One(s)" the Greek word with the English meaning of Mighty One is "Theos." Neither word can be directly related or assumed to be equal to the name Yahweh, the Almighty Creator, ... In Greek “Theos” can be applied to anyone or thing considered “mighty” or “great”. I find it interesting that the Hebrew letters  "YHVH" for “God” spell “Jehovah” , but backwards they spell “Theos” in Greek. Isaiah 14:13-15." - Source, "Times and the Law"

A “negation” of God is a “desolation” – “devoid” of Spirit/light/life – or “The Word” which is the “light of men”.




"Our great responsibility might be more emphatically stated or clearly understood if we realize that there is only one member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for approximately every 999 people in the world and only one member of this church per every 333 Christians, approximately.

There are more priesthood holders in the world today than ever before in the history of mankind, with greater power and influence, and of equally great importance, and with greater challenges and problems to meet. The world needs that power and strength and influence to give leadership in helping to meet, solve and overcome the problems caused by the wickedness so rampant in the world." - Source, LDS.org/GeneralConference 1975


The speech went on to talk about “combining power” with “the Savior” and how the Lord “set up his church in the these latter days”, which again verified their position on the opposite side of the “delusion” (2 Thessalonians 2) from where the true Christ told us to stand (Matthew 24, Daniel 11, Revelation 13).

But aside from that two glaring paragraphs really stood out for me.  The lesser of the two mentioned the growing “priesthood” in the world “with greater power and influence” . . . Do you reader, understand what this identifies them as?  The world “government” -  the fleshly kingdom of the false one.  They wrote of their part in the script when the children of Ammon birthed Mormonism out of Freemasonry.  This is the kingdom that would be belched out of the pit from the craftsmen of old time in preparation of the man-made kingdom of “the prince” – the false one that Jesus spoke of that “has nothing in me” in John 14:30.


This “speech” from which I took portion of in the box above is what was contained in a presentation my husband was asked to make . . . at a regular Sunday Service.  It was that same morning just before he left that he found a flock of vultures roosting on the roof of our house, two of them coming within a couple feet of his head when they took off.  It was written of back in February of this year on the link above the box.

The following weekend they were back but in lesser numbers and I learned something that day.  There is power in the name of Jesus Christ, and if you feel what you are saying when you invoke his name, even the foul of the air have to obey.

It isn’t just Mormons either.  The lie has penetrated every discipline.  The danger with the LDS church is the secret mystery schools of Egypt dressed in Christianity, like a donut with a rotten fruit filling.  Unlike Judaism and other dead baptizers the  Mandeans, they cloak themselves in what they are not, and only the properly indoctrinated get to the core of what they are.

As far as proxy baptism goes, there is plenty of scripture to testify against baptism for the dead, in that it does no good.

"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.   11. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.   12. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

13. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.   14. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?"


If confession is not made with the mouth unto salvation, Baptism alone will not save you.  The dead cannot confess.  You cannot "call upon the name of the Lord" if you are dead.  How shall the soul believe in him of whom they have not heard?

Will it hurt you to be baptized for the dead if that is what your church does?  Not as much as being deceived away from the truth by one that teaches out of books contradictory to truth.  Remember "Amen/Emet" is the word for "truth.  Remember what truth is with the "Aleph” removed?

It is Death.

"And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.   60. Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God."

Jesus said "let the dead bury their dead".  They dead were those who did not know who Jesus was and had not the Spirit.  Preaching the kingdom to those who had not heard it would save souls.

"Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.   51. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,   52. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."

Who are the sleeping?   The dead - they know nothing.

"For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten."

He that wanders out of understanding remains in the congregation of the dead:

"The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead."

David cries out to God in prayer asking how can he praise God if he is dead?

"Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction: Lord, I have called daily upon thee, I have stretched out my hands unto thee.   10. Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise thee? Selah.   11. Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? or thy faithfulness in destruction?

Again David prays:

"The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence."

It is the living soul that is saved, for when the dead die, the soul rests and the spirit goes back to God who gave it:

"Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.   7. Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it."

The Holy Ghost is not given to the dead if the Spirit goes back to God unto death.  The Holy Ghost is not wasted on the dead, who can do nothing to win the souls of the living.

"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost."

The dead cannot accept or decline anything.

"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:"

In first Peter, “the dead” are references as those that do not know yet the truth, which is what the angel said to me in the dream, telling me that it was those who don’t know they are dead that I have to worry about.

"Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;   2. That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

3. For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:   4. Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:

5. Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.   6. For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit."

 - That they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.  Why would the angel tell me to be concerned about those who don’t know they are already dead, if he were talking about those who were in the graves?  Because God wants those not yet in their graves saved.  The decision must be made by a conscious soul.

"But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not."

These are the false prophets with damnable heresies that began infiltrating the early church of the truth of who Christ was and what was offered through his sacrifice.  These are the false prophets who seek to keep the dead among the living, dead unto their graves.  Your soul matters not to them as much as their bondage over you.

The next few verses explain, that if God’s own angels who sinned cannot be saved, then those who died in sin will still be dead if they accept not salvation while they were yet among the living.

"For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;   5. And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;"

Peter gives the example through the flood of Noah, the destruction of Sodom, saving only Lot and destroying the rest, why would God open doors for those who lay in their graves without Christ?  And of those who fall away from the truth after having known it?  Their fate is worse than if they had not known at all – such as the angels that sinned.

If nothing else convinces you of the plight of the dead after they are buried, the story of Lazarus and the rich man in Luke 16 should explain it to understanding:

"There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:   20. And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,   21. And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

22. 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;   23. And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

24. 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.   25. 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.

26. 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; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

Once a man dies, there is no confession, salvation, or baptism.  If this were possible, then the angels who sinned would have had a chance to this gift and there would be no "son of perdition".

That is why the message is so important now.  It will soon be too late.

In the resurrection, the dead in Christ are already saved.  The living in Christ walking among us are saved.

Among the multitude of the nations, tongues and people, scattered throughout are the elect, waiting to be sealed in the forehead by God.  Those will teach the gospel until the end, servants of God working to fulfill the promise made to Abraham through the many nations that will be made his children; through the seed sown by those same servants of God, which is Christ Jesus, the Word made flesh, into the books so that they may be written in the book of life.

Because when he returns . . . it will be too late.






Don't let them cheat you out of this experience.  Jesus suffered what he suffered because of Love.

Who in their right mind would want to be separate from a love that powerful?

  1. Now might be a very good time to get your house in order. There are, after all, men playing God who know not what the consequences of their actions will be:

    "The LHC and its thousands of researchers made history in 2012 when they announced the discovery of the Higgs boson — a subatomic particle that represented the last missing puzzle piece for the Standard Model, one of physics' most successful theories. During its first run, the particle collider at the French-Swiss border smashed proton beams together at energies of up to 8 trillion electron volts, or 8 TeV. For the second run, the dial will be turned up to 13 TeV. At those energy levels, physicists hope to detect exotic particles that could explain the properties of mysterious dark matter — and they also may find evidence of microscopic black holes and weird, rolled-up spatial dimensions." - Source,

    1. This may mean nothing, as there are other things that have not happened yet, but we don't know in what order they will happen - the machine could "shut down", there could be "signs and lying wonders" or . . . the pit could be opened. Just, why the Passover weekend?

  2. "The leader of the free world met Thursday night with several top leaders of the Mormon world.

    Shortly after President Barack Obama landed at Hill Air Force Base, he rode by motorcade to Salt Lake City where he had a private meeting at the Sheraton Hotel with Presidents Henry B. Eyring and Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the First Presidency and apostles L. Tom Perry and D. Todd Christofferson.

    Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz said, "The President is pleased to meet with top LDS leaders as so many presidents before him have done."

    Schultz said they discussed the church's long record of service, including its work on disaster relief and other humanitarian issues, and the need to fix the broken immigration system." -

    This is interesting! This is their general conference this weekend too.

    Hadron Collider start up this weekend; Obama meets with Mormon Leaders at Salt Lake; Blood moon this weekend; Passover and oh yes, the announcement of the seven state Multi-Military exercise from July through September (JASON).

    Will keep you posted, if I can.
