Message 91:27

They that are filled with bitterness and contempt, charity hath no hold on them.

Don’t be filled with bitterness and contempt. If you are you are not capable of love. To be full of God’s love we cannot have bitterness or contempt.

Message 91:3-5

My mission is, that the Church may be fully prepared at the Lord’s coming. I come to prepare a people, the Lord’s bride. Yea, let all hear what the Lord has commanded me to say. I have brought the authority of the holy priesthood and reiterated and affirmed it. Will you keep it sacred, that the work of God may be accomplished and salvation comes to the humble, those that are full of love and obey the will of the Lord? Fear not, for this is the Lord’s work. I have come to you. I have called other servants to help in this work, though they be few—yet a great work can be done. For the Lord of the vineyard shall labor also, that the work might be done, for it must go on in haste.

John’s mission is to help us prepare for the second coming of Christ. We all know that Christ will return some day. It is up to us to be ready. If we are able to work, God will help us accomplish what we need. We must all prepare ourselves and work in preparing each other.


The message and authority that I bring is the pure love of God, the priesthood after the order of God: the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Creator of all things, even the Lord Jesus Christ. I am John the Baptist, the Elias which is for to come to bring the Elijah Message. There cometh a day when the open door before you will close. Are you ready for the consummation of all things; bringing in the Lord’s jewels, his elect ones—the honest of heart—making ready the bride of Christ, his Church, his Zion?

These three verses are a very clear warning. First John is bringing the authority and love that can only come from God. Second John reiterates who he is and why he is coming. Third he tells us that time is running out for us to decide on who we are going to choose. That being said who are you going to choose to follow Christ or devil?

Message 64:4

The Lord has looked upon his Church to bless the faithful. Some have denied the Lord and his goodness; some are full of doubt and are deprived of the joys of the Lord. Some will repent, others will go to destruction.

If we follow Christ’s words we will be blessed. If we don’t, life will be empty. The joy that comes from following Christ is better than the feeling that we get from the things of this world. Will you follow Christ or will you be empty?

Message 89:5

Read and study the words I bring. Shape your lives by what I bring, for this is the assured way.

We are told to keep reading the words the Lord has sent us. We need to live by these words. Christ has given us blueprint on how to live our lives. We should do our best to follow it.

1 Corinthians 12:1-31

Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant. Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led. Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

We are all a part of the larger body. We are no more important or less important than any other part. Each person plays a role in the Church. Yes there might be someone that has more responsibility, but that person is not more important. We have to every part working in unison to be a complete healthy body.

Here are the sermon files from the last two weeks.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

Love is everything. Without love there is nothing. It does not matter what you do, if you don’t have love it means nothing. Love is the key. Paul uses all kinds of words to describe love: long suffering, kind, envieth not, vaunteth not itself, not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things ,and never faileth. Love is all these things. It is complex and simple all at the same time. Love is everything.

Message 73:6

The Lord knoweth the hearts of mankind and wherein they desire to learn and do his will, it shall be like precious ointment poured out upon the faithful to dwell in this light of life and salvation. For unto them, shall be great joy, that which the mind of man has not yet attained to.

If we are looking for the Lord we will find him. When we find him we will receive his blessings. The peace and joy that comes from the Lord  is comforting.

Acts 10:9-16

On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour: And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance, And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth: Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat. But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean. And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common. This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven.

Christ did away with the old law. This includes many traditions. When we follow Christ we don’t have to follow the old law or manmade traditions. We only have to follow the teachings of Christ and the word that he has given to us.

2 Timothy 3:1-7

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

There will be so much evil in the world that it will be hard to find the good in the world. We are at that place today. Evil is around us everywhere. We must find the truth in the word. We cannot use our friends, our traditions, or our wants to decide what is right. We must only use the word of God.

2nd Nephi 30:7-10

And it shall come to pass that the Jews which are scattered also shall begin to believe in Christ; and they shall begin to gather in upon the face of the land; and as many as shall believe in Christ shall also become a delightsome people. And it shall come to pass that the Lord God shall commence his work among all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people, to bring about the restoration of his people upon the earth. And with righteousness shall the Lord God judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth. And he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth; and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. For the time speedily cometh that the Lord God shall cause a great division among the people, and the wicked will he destroy; and he will spare his people, yea, even if it so be that he must destroy the wicked by fire.

There will be a day when the nonbelievers in Christ will be destroyed. I hope that you are not a part of this group. Christ in now calling all people to him. He is restoring his people on the earth. Will you join him?

2nd Nephi 25:17-18

And the Lord will set his hand again the second time to restore his people from their lost and fallen state. Wherefore, he will proceed to do a marvelous work and a wonder among the children of men. Wherefore, he shall bring forth his words unto them, which words shall judge them at the last day, for they shall be given them for the purpose of convincing them of the true Messiah, who was rejected by them; and unto the convincing of them that they need not look forward anymore for a Messiah to come, for there should not any come, save it should be a false Messiah which should deceive the people; for there is save one Messiah.

Nephi even told about the need for Christ “to restore his people from their lost and fallen state.” The message that John brings is this restoration. The message is full of direction to help us find Christ. The message commands us to follow the true teachings of Christ and not be persuaded by man. Will you listen to the words of God.

Matthew 17:10-13

And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.

Christ talked about the need for the Elias to first come. Christ said he will “come and restore all things” We know that John the Baptist is the Elias, but John did not restore “all things” during his time on earth. We know this because Christ had not created his church yet. How could John restore it if it was not created yet? This means that John must come again as a resurrected being. This is happing today. John is bringing a message from Christ to us on earth. He is restoring “all things” and preparing the way for Christ’s return.

2 Timothy 4:1-5

I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

In this letter we learn that the church “will not endure sound doctrine” but go after the lusts of their hearts. It is very plane to see that this has happened. Look at what people do today in the name of Christ. We cannot be persuaded by the wants of our own minds, but must believe what is written in the word of God. The word is the standard.

Romans 3:21-26

But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say , at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

We al need Christ. We all are sinners. Will you ask for forgiveness?

Acts 20:28-30

Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

In these verses we start to learn how the church will fall away from Christ’s teachings. The devil will infiltrate the church and lead it astray. Because of this falling away Christ is required to send his messenger to restore all things. This is happening today. The messenger has come and will continual to come. Will you follow the truth or the traditions of man?

Here are the recordings of today’s service.

Message  40:3

Let all come together in the services of the Lord, and the Lord will meet with them in the hour of their humility revealing the things of the Kingdom, for all have a work to do. Let love fill your hearts that it will be said: ‘See how they love one another.’

When people outside of the church see us they need to see the love of Christ. If we cannot even show love between the members why would people think we could show love to non members. I know it sounds really basic, but it is. Love the key and the foundation of following Christ.

Matthew 5:43-45

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Once again we learn that Love is important to our Lord. Let God deal with the evil of this world, let us love one another.
