Message 68:5

The Lord is mindful of his people and has heard the prayers from the heart. I am commanded that answer shall come. Therefore, I came to speak life and the will of the Lord. I am the Elias. I am set to refine and make ready a people before the Lord. This is my mission. Deliverance shall come to many.

John comes to bring us hope and reassurance. His mission is to help us prepare to be Christ people. We need a lot of help, and John comes to give it to us.

John 14:6-7

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

Only through Christ can we know the Father. But through Christ we can have a great relationship with the Father.  God is a loving God who wants to be a part of our lives, and be believing on Christ we can allow that to happen.


And behold, all that he requires of you is to keep his commandments; and he hath promised you that if ye would keep his commandments ye should prosper in the land; and he never doth vary from that which he hath said; therefore, if ye do keep his commandments he doth bless you and prosper you.

All we have to do to receive Christ’s blessings is to follow his commandments. This sounds very simple and can be if you let the love of Christ into your heart. If don’t let Christ in, it become very difficult to not follow the ways of the world and follow God’s commandments.

Mark 9:11-13

And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come? And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought. But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.

Jesus talked about the coming of the Messenger. Notice how he said that Elias would first come and restore all things. This means that Elias could not come before Christ was on the earth at that time because Christ had yet to establish all things. You cannot restore things if they are not created yet.

Message 69: 3

Thus saith the Lord to the humble and obedient: Your faith has been exceeding great, you have endured and shall find my peace in abundance. I have watched over you and preserved even when Satan sought to destroy. Behold, it is I, even your Lord, that shall deliver you in the last day. Yea, come out of her lest you suffer with the ungodly and partake of her punishments. Let your life be filled with obedience.

God is always above looking down on us. He is there to protect us when we are attacked from Satan. God will deliver us from this evil, but we must be obedient to his word.

Alma 19:1-12

And it came to pass that after two days and two nights they were about to take his body and lay it in a sepulcher, which they had made for the purpose of burying their dead. Now the queen having heard of the fame of Ammon, therefore she sent and desired that he should come in unto her. And it came to pass that Ammon did as he was commanded, and went in unto the queen, and desired to know what she would that he should do. And she saith unto him: The servants of my husband have made it known unto me that thou art a prophet of a Holy God, and that thou hast power to do many mighty works in his name; Therefore, if this is the case, I would that ye should go in and see my husband, for he has been laid upon his bed for the space of two days and two nights; and some say that he is not dead, but others say that he is dead and that he stinketh, and that he ought to be placed in the sepulcher; but as for myself, to me he doth not stink. Now, this was what Ammon desired, for he knew that king Lamoni was under the power of God; he knew that the dark veil of unbelief being cast away from his mind, and the light which did light up his mind, which was the light of the glory of God, which was a marvelous light of his goodness—yea, this light had infused such joy into his soul, the cloud of darkness having been dispelled, and the light of everlasting light was lit up in his soul, yea, he knew that this had overcame his natural frame, and he was carried away in God— Therefore, what the queen desired of him was his only desire. Therefore, he went in to see the king according as the queen had desired him; and he saw the king, and he knew that he was not dead. And he saith unto the queen: He is not dead, but he sleepeth in God, and on the morrow he shall rise again; therefore bury him not. And Ammon saith unto her: Believest thou this? And she said unto him: I have had no witness save thy word, and the word of our servants; nevertheless I believe that it shall be according as thou hast said. And Ammon said unto her: Blessed art thou because of thy exceeding faith; I say unto thee, woman, there has not been such great faith among all the people of the Nephites.  And it came to pass that she watched over the bed of her husband, from that time even until that time on the morrow which Ammon had appointed that he should rise. And it came to pass that he arose, according to the words of Ammon; and as he arose, he stretched forth his hand unto the woman, and said: Blessed be the name of God, and blessed art thou.

The power of God is a mystery that cannot be explained at times. However the miracle here is great example of how God can use his power for the betterment of the faithful. By allowing the King to go through this God opened up a door for the king to convert his people to Christ. We have to be thankful that God does still do events like this today and we still are able to save many lives because of these miracles.  

Message 70: 9-10

Let all watch and pray, for the trials will come to all. Mankind must come all the way. The Lord has been and will be with his people by his Spirit, and his peace shall long linger with the faithful until they become the jewels of God.

We will all have our trials and tribulations, but with the help of the Lord we can get through them. If we stay faithful we will become the jewels of the Lord and his peace will flow over us. God never leaves us, but through faithfulness we allow his peace and love to touch us.

Psalms 107:6

Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.

Let us remember that the Lord hears our prayers. He will deliver us from our distress. He might not deliver us the way we would think or like, but he will deliver us.

1 Peter 4:7-11

But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. Use hospitality one to another without grudging. As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

We never know when the end might come, so we must act accordingly all the time. This means that we must have the love of Christ in us and we must give it out through our actions. Only the love of Christ will save us and will allow us to make it through this life. We must serve God by loving all of mankind.

Message 110:9

Yea, they shall learn of the Christ, the Savior and Messiah of all mankind, yea all the earth. Those that hear shall be delivered, redeemed and be saved in their inheritance, all that shall be with them serving the Lord. For they need not fear nor be confounded.

Only through Christ can we find peace and salvation. All will be able to hear this message and decide if they want to follow God or not. For those that do, they will set free from their sin and darkness. Will you be set free?

Helaman 4:12-13

And it was because of the pride of their hearts, because of their exceeding riches, yea, it was because of their oppression to the poor, withholding their food from the hungry, withholding their clothing from the naked, and smiting their humble brethren upon the cheek, making a mock of that which was sacred, denying the spirit of prophecy and of revelation, murdering, plundering, lying, stealing, committing adultery, raising up in great contentions, and deserting away into the land of Nephi, among the Lamanites— And because of this their great wickedness, and their boastings in their own strength, they were left in their own strength; therefore they did not prosper, but were afflicted and smitten, and driven before the Lamanites, until they had lost possession of almost all their lands.

As go through our lives we must remember to take care of those who need our help. We cannot think that possessions and money is what defines us. It is what we do with that stuff that defines us. What do you do with your blessing, keep them or share them?

Luke 14:16-24

Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.

The Lord is calling people to his supper, are you going to come listen to him or are you going to be busy? We only have one life to follow Christ so we better make the most of it.

Message 80:2

I am sent at this time, the Lord’s appointing. Give my words to the Church, the brethren. There are many faithful that grow not weary in well doing. The Lord’s work is set in pace, let it move on.

We cannot dictate the timing of the coming of John. If it was up to me he would have been sent back to us many years ago to help lead the work. What we can count on is the promise that God is going to send him back when he is ready for it. Until then we each have  search out the truth and see if our actions are what God would want us to do.

Message 65:8

I speak the will of him that sent me. I am John the Baptist, the servant of the Lord. Peace I leave with you and the Church. I will come again as the Lord will direct. Amen.”

John is coming to us in these end days not of his own accord, but from the direction of our Lord. John is a fellow servant of us and does the bidding of the Lord.

Exodus 20:17

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.


We should not be jealous of others. If we spend our time trying to keep up with others and their positions we are not serving God like he wants us too. We should not worry about other, if we just serve the Lord everything we need we will receive.
