Babylon and Money, Sacred Symbols and Secret Combinations


Over the course of a few years study, I have come to a knowledge of a few things that fundamentally changed my lifestyle.  I won’t go into all the details for the sake of brevity, but suffice it to say that over the course of this fundamental consciousness shift I have been impressed upon by the spirit to share some of the many aspects of the things I have come to believe.  This is the purpose of this post, to somehow start to satisfy the promptings I have been receiving, in the hopes that another of my brothers or sisters out there may have the opportunity to find some truth, and in finding said truth come to a peace and contentment that only the truth can bring.  I ask the reader to give honest diligence to the things that I write, and to prove my conclusions through prayer and personal study.  This topics covered in this post have been covered by others, and so I have decided to stay light on the theory and show more in factual substance the descent into a full on Babylon culture.

The most fundamental tenant of Babylon is competition.  This competition is used by the adversary to place us in a false paradigm, one in which we cannot see reality as it truly faces us.  Through the competition illusion, we do not see our brothers as ourselves.  We cannot view the group as one unit, but rather we see ourselves as individuals striving to maintain our own desires and needs.  Clearly this is in opposition to the plan of God, in which he states clearly “If you are not one, you are not mine.”  While Babylon works to change our perceptions of ourselves and our brothers and sisters, Money becomes the key tool to separate us.  Money has the unique ability to represent, at first glance, a variety of things.  It can represent food, stability, affluence, transportation, housing, and most importantly, time.  As our brother Lucifer taught us, “you can buy anything in this world for money”, and in that simple phrase is a great lesson.  Money, at its most basic, is time.  It is an exchange of your LIVED EVENTS, YOUR MORTAL EXPERIENCE, your effort and breath and heartbeat from moment to moment, for something else entirely.  Over the course of human history, money has come in various forms.  This currency, while it changes from culture to culture, is always representative of this fundamental exchange of our time, given us as a gift of God, for the ability to buy something.  Now, with this tool of deception firmly in place in Babylon, few people realize that they are trading their God given gift of life for their new car or home or basket full of groceries.  As a society draws further and further away from  the knowledge that they are trading their time for material wealth, they are more and more easily deceived. This pattern can be seen in the scriptures time and time again.  Costly apparel, education from one of Babylon’s many universities of higher learning, and many other things cause class distinctions, which are a representation that we have left the oneness that we experience when we are reconciled to God through Christ.  Now, these things are not new to this blog.  What I want to delve into is the symbols that follow this descent into Babylonian idolatry, what they represent, and how they show us, as a great prophet once said, how to “awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you”.  I believe that our first Prophet of this dispensation gave us a means to cleanse ourselves from the blood and sins of this generation.  This is my life long goal, to cleanse myself and my family from the wickedness of Babylon.  We cannot leave Babylon and build Zion until we have been able to recognize the symbols of Babylon, and of the secret combination that always rules Babylon.

We know that symbolism is a powerful tool in both God’s and Satan’s hands.  We have hopefully been taught some of the sacred symbols which God uses to bring us into an awareness of him.  As with all aspects of the Gospel, it should be no surprise that Satan pollutes the sacred symbols of God in an effort to deceive.  When Satan hijacks or perverts otherwise holy symbols, what is the result?  Confusion, misunderstanding, illusion, deceit.  If we are not vigilant in understanding the sacred symbols of God, and their perversions by the secret combination among us, we will be lead away as sheep to an awful destruction.   Luckily, with the spirit of the one true God guiding us, it is really not that difficult to see, feel, and know which things draw us to him, and which lead us away.  For starters, The holy symbols of God in their purity ARE NEVER used by the secret occult societies of the world.  As we study, say, the skull and bones, bohemian grove, the Illuminati, masonry, the knights Templar, etc, we find symbol upon symbol being used.  Christ’s words are powerful.  “By their fruits ye shall know them”.  Thus, when you study the history and actions of these societies, and you see they are evil and in competition with God and their fellow man, you can then know that the symbols they use are bastardizations of the holy symbols of God.  To see the destruction and chaos that the secret society among us is perpetrating, you need only follow the money.  Remember, Money is the root of all evil.  It divides us, it helps us justify our sin, it gives us a false sense of security by providing material comforts.

As I began to study and understand these topics, in a depth we have not even scratched here, it lead my brother and I to make some simple decisions.  These decisions were easy for us to make, yet seemed pretty crazy to most people we spoke to about them.  We saw symbols, patterns, and witnesses to the state of awful wickedness that had developed in our society.  This lead us to conclude that usury and its effects are evil, and that we could not join ourselves in any way with any institution or corporation that had joined itself with the principles of usury, exemplified in all their false glory by the Big Banks more than any other institutions.  So, we closed all our accounts.  We decided that it would be our goal to totally get out, to run from any organization that seemed to support these banks and the principles behind them.  This goal has grown larger and larger in scope for us, and the more we strive to get away, the more our minds are opened to the pervasive nature of these secret societies, and how they have fully taken over our world.  The people that run the banks, own the food supply, the oil companies, the big retailers.  You cannot buy food, drive a car, even turn on the lights in your house, without inadvertently supporting the secret combination.  Luckily, with faith and perseverance and dedication, and especially repentance, you can get out.  Along the way, you will be able to see clearer and clearer the symbols of dominance and control and competition that are being employed by “The combination” to show us exactly what they are doing.  With this knowledge, we can know the truth, live free of deception, and eventually come into total oneness with God, nature, and Christ, once we are living totally free of Babylon and Babylonian influence.

The symbol on the top of the page is on the cashiers check we paid our rent with today.  It is a inverted pentagram, like the one Joseph put on the Nauvoo temple, but its inside a pyramid, with hands clasping to make another pentagram within the pentagram.  The hands clasping are no coincidence.  The secret combination uses these symbols which all of us who have been endowed should be familiar with.  This symbol is clear.  The pyramid in which it is all focused is another clear symbol.  Be ye not deceived, see these things all around you.  Our apartment complex wont let us pay rent with cash, but even that is covered in the same symbols!  We hope and pray that we, as well as any and all who read this, can be free of this iniquity, and SOON.  We have it as our goal to provide all our own energy, food, transportation, and clothing.  This is our goal because we cannot find a system to trade our time for money, and then money for those things, that is worthy of that trade, and that is not corrupted by this secret combination.  It is had among all people’s, and it bringeth pass our destruction if we cannot recognize it, and leave it.  For our own benefit, and for the benefit of our posterity.  Lets get the hell out of this babylonian insanity!  HURRAH FOR ZION!!!!!!




This is taken in its entirety from the Millennial Star Vol 14 13-NOV-1852 Issue 38. I found it to be an awesome and very well written article, and figured it probably hasn’t seen much circulation lately, so i wanted to share it

Men in their ambition have ever sought for power, to rule and to exercise a controling influence over their fellow men, and generally but little regard has been had to the way and means by which they have come into possession of such power, neither when obtained, has it been always used with an eye single to the benefit or salvation of mankind. The desire, we admit, is a very natural one, from the fact that man is designed by God, and capacitated in his organization to be a ruler in a greater or less degree in the many grades that exist, from having rule over his own passions, propensities, and person, to that of a family, tribe, community, or society, a state or nation, an empire or a kingdom; and even his ambition may aspire to rule the world, or like God, peradventure, to sway the sceptre of of unumbered worlds.


All power is not immediately derived from the same source but all legitimate right of Government is in the Priesthood of God. Tyrants and usurpers, under the titles of Emperors, Kings, and Presidents, have dominion upon the earth, which has been obtained, and is maintained, by the sword and by blood, all of which is a usurpation of power, gained by might and not by right. The very sound of the word Priesthood, to every man who has a correct idea of the government of God, imparts a sensation that either elevates his soul with joy, or if he feels its influence is not within his reach, it abandons him to despair. It implies a divine right to govern and control, exercised by God, and imparted to whom He will; and when held by man under His approbation, is superior to every other power, and therefore cannot virtually be be called in question by any other. This right of government is so secured that no man can take the honour or power thereof unto himself, for God calls whom He will, and confers it upon him in His own appointed way; hence no man can obtain it without believing and confessing that there is a medium of immediate communication between him and his God; and all men who are called as was Aaron, by direct revelation, and ordained unto the Holy Priesthood, are ordained for men, in things pertaining to god, that reconciliation may be brought to pass.


By this we learn that the Priesthood administers in a perfect organization or government, because it is the government ordained and upheld by a perfect Being: it is a holy and just authority, because it administers in things pertaining to God, and partakes of the virtue of all his attributes. It is reasonable, then, for us to conclude that God would require obedience and respect to be paid to His government wherever found, and that those who hold the Priesthood should be recognized as his messengers.


Upon a point so self-evident, we have no need to reason further to authorize us to remark, that in the administration of a perfect law, there must be perfect obedience to that law, on the part of the subjects who are governed by it; otherwise there is a violation of the law, which must be atoned for by the transgressor: if it were not so, the honour of the law would not be maintained; but the law of God, being perfect, not only provides for the salvation of all through mercy, but it is also armed with justice, that its supremacy may be maintained by meting out a just recompense to the transgressor.


This Priesthood is now among men upon the earth, and is in successful operation for their salvation. The King himself, who holds all power in this priesthood, was upon the earth more than eighteen hundred years ago, and desired to reign by virtue of it, but mankind would not suffer him. He was holy, but men were so wicked they could not appreciate his goodness, nor his power; therefore they destroyed him, and would not suffer him to live upon the earth. And what was the result? That same holy power and saving influence which he possessed he conferred upon men, who were not so perfect as himself, and ordained them to be the medium of his power, that peradventure their labours and ministrations might be more adapted to the low, grovelling, and degraded condition of those who were to receive them, and because of it, be better appreciated than His labours and motives were.


The minds of men generally are not capacitated to receive the ministrations of perfect beings; hence each grade of intelligences is administered unto by the next above in capacity, power, and glory, like unto the way of life to a Saint, which is from grace to grace, and from faith to faith, living by that which is in part until that which is perfect shall come. When the government of God is thoroughly established upon the earth, through the immediate agency of men and angels under God’s own supervision, and has so far gained the supremacy over contending powers, that the King’s person can be safe among men, and be duly honoured by them, then will he again come to reign, and bring in that which is perfect; then shall a universal day of peace and righteousness be enjoyed by those who inherit the earth; for the King has decreed that all who cannot abide and honour the perfect administration of his laws in that day, shall be destroyed from off the earth.


According to examples which are recorded in sacred writ, and which have actually been witnessed by many of the Saints of the present diespensation, men are called to receive the Priesthood, and in virtue of it, perform a certain work for which they seem adapted, and afterwards they are suffered to dishonour that priesthood by using the influence which they have gained, to lead others astray; and thereby dishonour and reproach have at times been brought upon those who considered it a duty to listen to their counsel. By being enabled thus to accomplish their covetous, lustful, and unlawful ends, they have brought disgrace and suffering upon others, incurred the wrath of God and the disapprobation of His people upon themselves, and the power of the Priesthood has altogether departed from them, for its virtue will not abide with those who violate its laws.


Because of these facts, and the apparent imperfections of men on whom God confers authority, the question is sometimes asked,-to what extent is obedience to those who hold the priesthood required? This is a very important question, and one which should be understood by all Saints. In attempting to answer this question, we would repeat, in short, what we have already written, that willing obedience to the laws of God, administered by the Priesthood, is indispensable to salvation; but we would further add, that a proper conservative to this power exists for the benefit of all, and none are required to tamely and blindly submit to a man because he has a portion of the Priesthood. We have heard men who hold the priesthood remark, that they would do any thing they were told to do by those who presided over them, if they knew it was wrong; but such obedience as this is worse than folly to us; it is slavery in the extreme; and the man who would thus willingly degrade himself, should not claim a rank among intelligent beings, until he turns from his folly. A man of God, who seeks for the redemption of his fellows, would despise the idea of seeing another become his slave, who had an equal right with himself to the favour of God; he would rather see him stand by his side, a sworn enemy to wrong, so long as there was place found for it among men. Others, in the extreme exercise of their almighty (!) authority, have taught that such obedience was necessary, and that no matter what the saints were told to do by their Presidents, they should do it without asking any questions.


When the Elders of Israel will so far indulge in these extreme notions of obedience, as to teach them to the people, it is generally because they have it in their hearts to do wrong themselves, and wish to pave the way to accomplish that wrong; or else because they have done wrong, and wish to use the cloak of their authority to cover it with, lest it should be discovered by their superiors, who would require an atonement at their hands.


We would ask, For what is the priesthood given unto men? It is that they may have a right to administer the law of God. Have they then a right to make void that law? Verily no. When the law of God has gone forth from His own mouth, and been declared by the mouths of His Prophets and Apostles, saying, “thou shalt not lie” who can say by the virtue of his Priesthood, You may lie and be approved? The Lord and His Prophets have declared it as a law unto His people, “thou shalt not commit adultery.” Then who can say, thou mayest commit adultery, and it will be no sin? it is written as a law unto the Saints “thou shalt not kill.” Then we ask again, Who can kill and be forgiven? And in like manner it might be asked of all the laws of God, Who has the right to make them void? None can revoke the decree but Him by whom it was given; neither can the laws of God be trampled upon with impunity, or revoked by a lesser power than  that by which they were framed. It is written of God, that He cannot lie; then none need suppose that He will approve of it through His authority which is on the earth; neither is He the Son of man that He should repent, therefore He will maintain the law by which His kingdom is governed. Should any think that they can give counsel to gratify their lusts, or answer avaricious ends, and say, “No one seeth us,” while they indulge therein, and delight in sin as a sweet morsel, they will learn with sorrow, that an eye which never sleeps has been upon their path, and He that seeth in secret shall make manifest, and reward openly every man according to his deeds, whether good or evil.


If a man could have as much authority as the Almighty, it would not authorize him to do wrong, nor coursel another to do wrong; and the man that will administer with partiality, for the sake of screening iniquity, will find his stewardship will be taken from him. 


In administering the Government of God, there are three parties concerned, viz., the subject who is governed, the person who governs, and the person by whose permission, or under whose approbation, he governs. Should a person be required to violate a known law by his President, or if he is not satisfied with the counsel which he gives, he should not openly rebel against that president, but if they cannot see eye to eye, he should appeal privately to the next higher power or President, and where three are thus brought together who have a spirit to do right, right will prevail and harmony be maintained. While such is the character of God’s government that its genius and policy are to the end that iniquity may be swept from off the earth, persons need not think to excuse themselves for performing a known unlawful act simply because they were told to do it by another; if such an excuse as this would justify, none would ever need to come under condemnation; for men would be sure to find some one on whom to lay the burden of their sins. The day has come when every one may expect to answer for their own sins, without attempting to cloak them with an others Priesthood.


Great is the responsibility of that man who is called to give counsel which involves the salvation of another; and when such counsel is given, it should be of that pure character, that the powers above him upon the earth, with angels and God, can approve. He will then have no occasion to destroy his own influence and power by telling others that it will be no sin for them to commit adultery, to lie, or steal, &c., &c., if they are told to do it by the Priesthood, and thereby pervert the right ways of the Lord, and bring reproach upon the honour of His cause. The Lord asks for no such confidence in His Priesthood as this, neither do good men who are under its influence. The Priesthood never demands a wrong at the hands of another, though men who hold the Priesthood may make such a demand, as has sometimes been the case, and for which they have had to suffer.


Where the authority of God is, there should the confidence of all men be reposed, sufficiently to obey its laws, but not to violate them; for we have not yet learned that it has power enough to save the transgressor in his sins. Some men have been so wise as to think the little authority they had was sufficient for them to set aside law and revelation, and mete out justice and judgment upon their own responsibility. But in the end they have found that responsibility to be greater than they could bear.


These sentiments are not advanced with idea of defining the limits of Divine authority, nor that any one can find language to portray the extent of the rights and powers of the Priesthood: for to fully comprehend it, would be to  comprehend God. But they are offered with the consideration that Saints may be led to see the skill and wisdom manifested in its organization; how safely it is guarded from the impositions of men, and the impossibility of sin prevailing where it is duly and wisely administered, and that none need be imposed upon if they understand the rights and privileges which it guarantees to them: then, if they do not avail themselves of those rights, they are left without excuse. Extreme exercise of power, in cases of such importance, and upon matters of such infinite moment, should be studiously avoided, when we consider that every one must render a faithful account of his stewardship.


Some have supposed that the more authority men have in the kingdom of God, the greater is their liberty to disregard His laws, and that their greatness consists in their almost unlimited privileges, which leave them without restrictions; but this is a mistaken idea. Those who are the greatest in authority, are under the greatest restrictions; the law of their sphere is greater than that of those who are in less power, and the restrictions and penalty of that law are proportionally great; therefore they are under the greater obligation to maintain the virtue of the law and the institutions of God, otherwise confidence could not be reposed in them, but distrust and evil surmisings would be the result; disaffection would be found lurking in every avenue of society, and by thus severing the cords of union, it would prove the destruction of any people.


A voice from the heavens has again been heard breaking the silence of the ages, with a purpose and determination to establish the kingdom of God, and introduce a celestial government upon the earth; if makind will respect and obey these laws when revelaed to them, they shall be savced, and inherit a celestial glory. Therefore, had we a voice like the sound of the trump of the Archangel, that could be heard by all living, or had we the power of a God to penetrate and make every heart feel and realize the truth, we would proclaim it abroad in the ears of all living-Repent ye, repent ye, for the hour of God’s judgement has come, and the transgressor shall perish from off the earth, while the meek shall be redeemed to inherit forever.

“If ye are not one ye are not mine”

Jesus said “If ye are not one ye are not mine.” In the Book of Mormon the effects of disunity were made abundantly clear. Due to their pride and their conviction that they alone were the Lord’s chosen people, or that they alone understood the will of god, several different groups separated themselves from their brethren and refused to listen to the prophets that god sent to them.

Alma 21:5 “Therefore, as Aaron entered into one of their synagogues to preach unto the people, and as he was speaking unto them, behold there arose an Amalekite, and began to contend with him, saying: What is that that thou hast testified? Hast thou seen an angel? Why do not angels appear unto us? Behold, art not this people as good as thy people? Thou also sayest, Except ye repent, we shall perish. How knowest thou the thought and intent of our hearts? How knowest thou that we have cause to repent? How knowest thou that we are not a righteous people? Behold, we have built sanctuaries, and we do assemble ourselves together to worship God. We do believe that God will save all men. Now Aaron said unto him, Believest thou that the Son of God shall come to redeem mankind from their sins? And the man saith unto him, We do not believe that thou knowest any such thing. We do not believe in these foolish traditions. We do not believe that thou knowest of things to come, neither do we believe that thy fathers, and also that our fathers did know concerning the things which they spake, of that which is to come.”

The Amalekites had built sanctuaries and met together to worship god, but they could not believe that their fathers, or anyone else, let alone a nephite, whom their fathers had separated themselves from due to their wickedness, knew more than they did, or even had anything of worth to teach them. They viewed themselves much like we do today, as the pinnacle of civilization, the height of understanding. The zoramites were convinced of similar things. Eventually, through the teachings of the nehors and the spread of the secret combination this attitude affected all of the nephites, and they collectively rejected Samuel as the Amalekites rejected aaron. That this false gospel became widespread among the people should surprise no one, since it is pleasing to the natural man, telling a man that he has no need to change what he is doing, and that he can look forward to a life of riches and god’s continued favor.

Helaman 13:27 “But behold, if a man shall come among you, and shall say, Do this, and there is no iniquity; do that, and ye shall suffer; yea, he will say, walk after the pride of your own hearts; yea, walk after the pride of your eyes, and do whatsoever your heart desireth; and if a man shall come among you and say this, ye will receive him, and ye shall say that he is a prophet; yea, ye will lift him up, and ye will give unto him of your substance; ye will give unto him of your gold, and of your silver, and ye will clothe him with costly apparel; and because he speaketh flattering words unto you, and he saith that all is well, and then ye will not find fault with him.”

Shortly after rejecting Samuel’s testimony, the people lived a lifestyle that sounds extremely similar to American life today:

3 Nephi 6 “And it came to pass that there were many cities built anew, and there were many old cities repaired; and there were many highways cast up, and many roads made, which led from city to city, and from land to land, and from place to place. And thus passed away the twenty and eighth year, and the people had continual peace. But it came to pass in the twenty and ninth year, there began to be some disputings among the people; and some were lifted up in pride and boastings, because of their exceeding great riches, yea, even unto great persecutions: for there were many merchants in the land, and also many lawyers, and many officers. And the people began to be distinguished by ranks, according to their riches, and their chances for learning; yea, some were ignorant because of their poverty, and others did receive great learning because of their riches; some were lifted up in pride, and others were exceeding humble; some did return railing for railing, while others would receive railing, and persecution, and all manner of afflictions, and would not turn and revile again, but were humble and penitent before God; and thus there became a great inequality in all the land, insomuch that the church began to be broken up; yea, insomuch that in the thirtieth year the church was broken up in all the land, save it were among a few of the Lamanites, which were converted unto the true faith; and they would not depart from it, for they were firm, and steadfast, and immoveable, willing with all diligence to keep the commandments of the Lord. Now the cause of this iniquity of the people was this: Satan had great power unto the stirring up of the people to do all manner of iniquity, and to the puffing them up with pride, tempting them to seek for power, and authority, and riches, and the vain things of the world. And thus Satan did lead away the hearts of the people, to do all manner of iniquity; therefore they had not enjoyed peace but a few years. And thus in the commencement of the thirtieth year, the people having been delivered up for the space of a long time, to be carried about by the temptations of the Devil whithersoever he desired to carry them, and to do whatsoever iniquity he desired they should; and thus in the commencement of this, the thirtieth year, they were in a state of awful wickedness. Now they did not sin ignorantly, for they knew the will of God concerning them, for it had been taught unto them; therefore they did wilfully rebel against God.”

After the more wicked part of the people were destroyed and the secret combination was no longer in the land jesus taught the people exactly what things they should do, and exactly what things to believe. Jesus gave Joseph the seer even more specific instructions for our day; so that there were would be no disputations among us concerning the points of his doctrine. He taught that we should be equal in our temporal things, that there should be no class divisions, or economic competition (contention). He taught the simple truth that all children know but are taught to ignore as they get older, that we work better together, that we should share what we have, that live is not a competition to see who can accumulate the most things before they die. Jesus said in D&C 70:4

“nevertheless, in your temporal things you shall be equal, and this not grudgingly, otherwise the abundance of the manifestations of the Spirit shall be withheld.”

That this scripture has been fulfilled I have no doubt. When I was among saints who were compelled to be humble and were all poor together, the abundance was not withheld to the extent it usually is in north America. miraculous healings, divine communication through dreams, and the ability to soften the hearts of our brethren through the spirit were not unheard of, although still not present to the extent that they were in the scriptural record. there were occasions that we felt like nephi

And Nephi did minister with power and with great authority. And it came to pass that they were angry with him, even because he had greater power than they, for it were not possible that they could disbelieve his words; for so great was his faith on the Lord Jesus Christ

The process of becoming zion, or of one heart and one mind, dwelling in righteous and having no poor among us, is a very unique one. As we begin to be equal in our temporal things, our spiritual things, our beliefs, the abundance is no longer withheld, and our father lets us know how happy he is with us for doing his work. Lets not forget that he and his angels want zion more than any of us do, more than any of us can want it. The problem is that it is hard for us to become of one heart and one mind because we are being pulled apart by forces that we do not completely understand and recognize. Television, movies, political parties, racial pride, religions, sports franchises, differing ideologies on every subject imaginable, and a never ending demand to work more and accept larger amounts of debt keep us distracted from our true nature. We often end up like the Amalekites or zoramites or countless other examples in the scriptures of people who were convinced that they and their tribe would be saved while others would be lost. Such a foolish and false teaching can be easily be discounted by reviewing the scriptures.

If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar; for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

Brothers and Sisters, god swore that his people would possess the land, and his people are those who do his will. He did not destroy the lamanites and spare the nephites. He did not destroy the nephites and spare the lamanites. He spared the people that listened to his prophets, and destroyed those who hated their brethren.

And now, behold, my beloved brethren, I would speak unto you: for I, Nephi, would not suffer, that ye should suppose that ye are more righteous than the Gentiles shall be. For behold, except ye shall keep the commandments of God, ye shall all likewise perish; and because of the words which have been spoken, ye need not suppose that the gentiles are utterly destroyed. For behold, I say unto you, as many of the Gentiles as will repent, are the covenant people of the Lord; and as many of the Jews as will not repent, shall be cast off: for the Lord covenanteth with none, save it be with them that repent and believe in his Son, which is the Holy One of Israel.

Salvation does not come based on membership of any group of any kind. It only comes to those who do the will of our father, which is to love all men equally, no matter what. There are no qualifiers given to this commandment. As long as we are divided into groups, we can be sure that we are not doing the will of our father. When there were no longer –ites of any kind, the people were finally able to sing “the lord hath brought again zion; the lord hath redeemed his people”

In what ways do we need to repent and become one? What things do we do that prevent others from joining us, or us with them? In what ways do we seek to excersize control over others? In what ways have we been tempted “to seek for power, and authority, and riches, and the vain things of the world?”

We need to learn to learn from everyone we meet and accept everyone we come into contact with. We need to stop doing things that make others want to be separate from us, and finding excuses to separate ourselves from them. Bill Nye the science guy once said “everyone you meet knows something you don’t know”

Terence McKenna in speaking of what he called “the eschatological transcendent event at the end of history” (what we call the second coming and ushering in of the millennium) said

The real cataclysmic future does not lie in the propagation of the errors of industrial materialism. The real transformation of the future is built into the rocks, the oceans, the animals, it’s not coming from human beings. The people who think they are running the world are dreaming. I’m completely convinced that no one is in control and that this is very good news. nobody is in control, not the communist party, the Vatican, the world bank, nobody is in control. there may be groups who dream of controlling, but their frustration level must be approaching infinity at this point.

When I heard this I was struck by how much it sounded it like

Yea, it shall be unto them even as unto a hungry man who dreameth, and behold, he eateth, but he awaketh and his soul is empty; or like unto a thirsty man who dreameth, and behold, he drinketh, but he awaketh, and behold, he is faint, and his soul hath appetite. Yea, even so shall the multitude of all the nations be that fight against mount Zion.
