The Remnant

Wow I just listened to a very profound podcast titled The Remnant by Mike Stroud. There were certain parts that took my breath away and I felt the spirit very strong so I transcribed the audio into text with some of the things that stood out to me.

Remember: It’s not all or nothing. Take those things that resonate with you and those that don’t it’s OK. Let the spirit discern those things your meant to hear and those your not.

Here’s some of my notes.

By the mouth of two of three witnesses shall every word be established (2 Corinthians 13:1 )

This is the second witness I’ve received on this subject.

There is a whole universe of knowledge out there. There is something in us in this fallen world that wherever we are at with our knowledge we think that we have enough.

The B of M talks about this with the natures of scriptures. It talks about when people get the Bible which is a book of knowledge that to add anything to it is a major challenge for God’s children in the Telestial world.

We just become so locked in and resistant to change that it damns us.

It takes the whisperings of the spirit to shake us up from our complacency and our spiritual doldrums in order for us to come to a knowledge that what I’ve got is a thumb nail and there is so much more available there.

Then when we find out what is available out there we are hesitant to move into it because a lot of times what is available goes against our existing traditions and existing paradigms.

God hides his greatest secrets in contradictions and paradoxes. For you to access these secrets (i.e. mysteries of God) is going to cause you some uncomfort.

You’re going to have to be uncomfortable because many times these things come to you in direct opposition to what you hold to be absolute truth. 5:22 min

Joseph Smith Struggled with these kinds of things. He said: 

It is my meditation all the day, and more than my meat and drink, to know how I shall make the Saints of God comprehend the visions that role like an overflowing surge before my mind.

Oh! how I would delight to bring before you things which you never thought of! But poverty and the cares of the world prevent.

But I’m glad I have the privilege of communicating to you some things which, if grasped closely, will be a help to you when earthquakes allow, the clouds gather, the lightnings flash, and the storms are ready to burst upon you like peals of thunder.

Lay hold of these things and let not your knees or joints tremble, not your hearts faint. (History of the church Vol 5 page 362).

The information that Joseph wanted to give the Saints was of such nature that the majority of them “Their knees would tremble, their hearts would faint and they would barely be able to grasp and embrace them if at all and the majority would not.

He also said:

I desire the learning and wisdom of heaven alone. I have not the least idea, if Christ should come to the earth and preach such rough things as He Preached to the Jews, but that this generation would reject Him for being so rough 

And another one:

The great thing for us to know it to comprehend what God did to institute before the foundation of the world. Who knows it. Had I inspiration, revelation and lungs to communicate what my soul has contemplated in times past.

There is not a soul in this congregation would go to their minds and shut their mouths in everlasting silence on religion till they learn something.

Why be so certain that you comprehend the things of God when all the things with you are so uncertain. You are welcome to all the knowledge the sound salutes my ears.

We are come to mount Zion. What could profit us to come unto the spirits of just men but to learn and come to the knowledge of the spirits of the just.

He tried to teach us through everything he did.  How to come up and obtain everything he obtained and by in large the Saints rejected it as a whole.

So what are we going to do to be different from that?

We have to be open and willing to be uncomfortable in order to embrace greater truth because it will make you feel uncomfortable.

Some of the things Joseph taught were of such a nature that he would look at general authorities sitting on the stand in general conference and point to them and say:

If I were to reveal to you what God has shown me. You would try to take my life.

Interestingly enough some of those people that he pointed to actually did conspire to take the prophet’s life and were some of the main people that did take his life in Carthage. Stake presidents and general authorities.

Yet all he was trying to do was bring to them what God had revealed to him. 9:25 min

I don’t know that we have progress beyond that today. We are a lot like the children of Israel in the days of Moses.

Moses wanted to bring them up to have a personal encounter with God and the vast majority of the people (this was a selected called out separate group from the world).

leap-of-faith

But because of the hardness of their hearts and their traditions they embraced during the time they were in Egypt they couldn’t make the leap of faith.

So as a result they lost the opportunity for melchizedek priesthood, the fullness of the Priesthood and the ability an opportunity of the doctrine of translation. Moses wanted to bring his people to have the experience that Enoch and his people had had Melchizedek and his people had had  but they couldn’t make the leap Joseph Smith wanted to do the same thing and we failed in the attempt.  

Now we are living in a day where we are going to have the opportunity one more time to have that chance to embrace these things. A  small portion  of the LDS Church. A  small group from within the church will Embrace this. 11:10

let’s look at the Old Testament for a minute.

Joel 2: 28

This is a famous scripture that has been quoted in many many General conferences by many general authorities talking about our day in the latter days where the Lord will pour out his spirit to all Flesh.

But as we sometimes do we emphasize one scripture but don’t look at the scriptures that precede it or follow it  to get a deeper understanding. Verse 28 is the one that we all know

28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

boyd-k-packer

The word afterward in this verse is an Old Testament is a way of saying in the last days. This scripture was quoted as recently the last few conferences ago from Boyd K. Packer where he said that this scripture is being fulfilled.

We live in the day of that fulfillment. Every prophet the quoted that scripture says that it’s our day.

That sons and daughters and young men and old men are receiving the gifts of revelation, dreams and Visions in our day like never before.

29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.

Those days in the above verse is another indicator that he’s talking about the last days. The next verse is a giveaway that we know what time we are looking at because verse 30 says.

30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come.

It’s pretty clear now that we are talking about events just prior to the second coming.  I believe that the Fulfillment of verse 30 is already upon us and it’s going to escalate.

Now verse 32 is the verse that we never quote.

32 And it shall come to pass (tie that into the previous verses so we are talking about the day just before the coming of Christ), that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered (great promise especially in a day of destruction and turmoil): for in mount Zion (in the Old Testament has reverence to America and the new Jerusalem) and in Jerusalem (reference to the old Jerusalem in the state of Israel) shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.

So you’re going to see deliverance from two world capitals that will have the beginning of the establishment of the days just prior to the second coming and then those two world capitals will continue to function in perfection on into the millennial terrestrial third Estate world.

and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call. 16:45 min

This is the only place where that Remnant is mentioned in connection with the New Jerusalem in Mount Zion on the American continent and Jerusalem in Israel.

That Remnant is being organized and moved upon by the spirit now. That remnant is coming from the congregations of the LDS Church. 17:20 min

So looking at this again…

Deliverance will be found in mount Zion in Jerusalem and it also appears that this remnant will also be able to offer deliverance as a refuge.

Deliverance is found in 3 places and groups of individuals.

Mount Zion is centered upon the children of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh.

The deliverance in Jerusalem is centered on the Jews and the remnant the early brethren talked about the coming from among the latter day saints.

The Remnant is a preparatory group that begins to establish the cause of Zion before the actual real estate and the city of the New Jerusalem has its foundations laid.

I believe that Remnant is being called and marshalled and organized right now.

Some of the doctrine that the Remnant is interested in for example:

Having your calling and election made sure.

The more sure word of Prophecy.

The second comforter.

The ministration of angels.

The ministry of just men made perfect and

The spirits of the just that Joseph was talking about in that last quote.

They’re interested in these things because the spirit rests upon them and they are gathering all the knowledge they can about these lofty doctrines that will place them in the position.

Without man-made weapons they’ll be able to withstand the onslaught of evil that’s coming our way that will engulf and consume the majority of the population of the Telestial word.

These are men and women who have power over the elements.  These are men and women who can call down fire from heaven.

These are men and women who can cause themselves and those they love to be transported without limitations of time and space.

The Priesthood is designed for men to help them do things that women already by nature have a part of them.

All the higher blessings of the Gospel that we mentioned. All those terms that we just referred to are available to individual women. So the priesthood is not required.

Men need priesthood to help them to learn the obedience necessary to sacrifice and to do what women already do by Nature. 21 min

The key to all this is Sacrifice

Side note: Neutralized is another audio I plan to listen to at a later date.

All the Best to you and your family!
