  1. Isaiah 28 is a good read here. The prophet Isaiah reveals the general state of Ephraim when the one mighty and strong shows up with knowledge in tow. I don't consider Isaiah 28 to be a derogatory statement to the Apostels and Prophet Russell M. Nelson, but to Ephraim at large who is described as being drunk on pride and latched to milk. This would explain why the Lord does not reveal much meat - at least not through the prescribed channels. The people simply haven't earned it.
  2. Part II has been published here: https://lordoftheseraphim.blogspot.com/2019/04/the-seven-levels-of-creation-part-ii.html The topic of discussion here is to discuss how the days of creation align to the dispensations and to the dispensation heads themselves. Seven spiritual levels of humanity is not a new concept. This concept is represented by the spiritual centers called "Chakras" in eastern religion. There are seven heavens which represent the divisions of glory of mankind represented in the Books of Enoch and the Ascension of Isaiah. Avraham Gileadi has also drawn seven spiritual levels from his studies of Isaiah. I submit there are indeed seven spiritual orders of mankind and they align to the seven rewards given to the seven angels of the seven churches of Asia. Knowing who we are and where we are on this ladder to God is as important as knowing where we are headed next. Tying the seven days of creation to these spiritual levels of ascension - have you ever heard of this before? If not, well here you go. This is the topic of conversation.
  3. Seven spiritual levels is not a new concept. Seven heavens are mentioned throughout the apocrypha. Seven chakras are seven spiritual levels of ascension that hail from India between 500 BC and 1500 BC. Avraham Gileadi has pieced together the seven levels of spiritual ascension as well during his studies of Isaiah and the Gospel. Below is my eight article on these seven levels of spiritual ascension. In this article, I begin to align the days of creation to the dispensations, the dispensation heads, the laws of God, and the rewards for overcoming as given to the seven churches of Asia in Revelation. https://lordoftheseraphim.blogspot.com/2019/04/the-seven-levels-of-creation-part-i.html Only the first three days of creation are covered, but I plan on writing more just as soon as I can. Here's a little preview of how these levels match up: Day & Work / Dispensation & Patriarch / Law & Reward Day 1 Light and Dark / Dispensation 7 & Joseph Smith / Faith & Salvation from Physical Death Day 2 Water and Atmosphere / Dispensation 6 & Peter / Repentance & Salvation from Spiritual Death Day 3 Water and Dry Land and Fruit / Dispensation 5 & Moses / Obedience & Knowledge Day 4 Sun, Moon, and Stars / Dispensation 4 & Abraham / Sacrifice & Increase Day 5 Animals / Dispensation 3 & Noah / Gospel & Second Comforter Day 6 Man / Dispensation 2 & Enoch / Chastity & Father's presence Day 7 Rest / Dispensation 1 & Adam / Consecration & Godhood Some of these links are very strong. Noah aligns to the 5th day of creation of animals. Noah and Animals ... hrm. Moses aligns to the 3rd day of creation where God commands the waters to separate from dry land. Hrm ...Abraham aligns to the appearance of the Sun, Moon, and Stars. etc. Enjoy! What is your specific topic of discussion?
  4. **Updated 2/14/2019** Part III changes: -- Added scriptures from D&C 77, Moses 7, and a quote from Joseph Smith that expounds upon the four sons of Horus. -- Updated commentary on facsimile 3's "Grant salvation to the Osiris Hor" **** https://lordoftheseraphim.blogspot.com/2019/02/horus-abraham-and-davidic-servant-part.html
  5. This is exactly what I mean and where I was certain you were going asking these leading questions. You've asked me how I can rely on evidence outside the scriptures without dating. Easy. I don't rely on physical evidence as a foundation of my testimony. Do you? The evidences are the many many coincidences within Egyptian mythology and within the facsimiles themselves. To the believer these are supporting witnesses. To the one who bases their beliefs in physical evidence, they still have plenty of conflicting data to make them feel nice and less insecure in their disbelief. And this is the way God intended. Ether 12:27 Ether 12:6 And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; I would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith As for your Egyptus question, yes. Yes it is. If Joseph Smiths revelation on the book of Abraham was... What exactly? Mis-revealed? What else can we toss out of the Book of Abraham by the same or similar justification used to disregard the Egyptus account? The Book of Abraham is deep, rich, and beautiful. However the facsimiles align to the statement of them being original works of Abraham, what's crystal clear to me is the scriptures produced are true. Many layers have been confirmed to me by the method laid out in Ether 12:6. Layers upon layers confirming the foundation which reinforces my testimony of Joseph Smith. The article I've written shows how both the mythology and the facsimiles reinforce my understanding of who the one like unto the son of man is in Abraham 3. None of this is founded in physical evidence but reinforces my many spiritual witnesses. Even if I personally descended into disbelief, there have been way too many coincidences for me to disregard.
  6. Again, I don't want to veer too deeply about dating as it really is getting off-topic. If you have a testimony of Joseph Smith as I do, then you likely agree with me that Egyptus' son was: 1. Righteous 2. The great-grandson of Noah (therefore post-flood) 3. The first Pharoah of Egypt Therefore, the idea that eternal truths may be reflected in Egyptian mythology is not only plausible but probable given the many evidences of this - Bruce Porter's presentation on the Book of Abraham is a fantastic example of this: Adamic may have influenced Egyptian words or persisted in an altered form beyond the tower of Babel - or Amun / Ahman is just yet another "coincidence."
  7. You'll have to be a little more specific. Without such I can't recommend starting a new topic or comment as to the relevancy to this thread (as we're starting to veer quite a bit into why science can't be trusted, (which scientists hate.))
  8. How do you validate any dating beyond the written record? There's nothing against which to verify accuracy.
  9. I don't see it as an extreme trick. The Book of Abraham is the perfect example. There is a lot of evidence to support the Book of Abraham - elements found in later discovered Abrahamic apocyrpha, Egypt being under water, accurate translations, "coincidences" etc. etc. There is also a lot of physical evidence against the Book of Abraham for the disbeliever - "It's just a Book of the Dead scroll!," etc. Mainstream science is full of pride and agendas - when new evidence surfaces that contradicts a mainstream theory, the new evidence is usually disregarded. So many dissertations have been written already - grants pending approval, etc. Anyway, I don't trust the mainstream timelines and there's far more reason to distrust science than there is scripture.
  10. Well if anyone can pull that off, God can. I realize there are more sciencey folks on this site, but remember to be learned is good if they hearken unto the counsels of God. If our reality is a construct, how easy would it be to manipulate? If it isn't, it's it any harder for God to manipulate? There are so many discoveries that poke giant holes in mainstream scientific views on history. Such as, "Egyptians somehow knew how to identify true north but the technology did not exist back then." 😐 Obviously it did.
  11. What if the Earth was in a different state pre-flood? When men lived longer, what if the properties of the materials of this world were also different? Would that cause a wrinkle in dating that would be difficult to detect?

  13. Thank you Clark Goble. I certainly will be careful with trying to match each and every Egyptian deity to someone real. However, if you didn't read the article in the OP, I strongly recommend you do so as there are too many coincidences in both the mythology and in the facsimiles to discount the Horus parallels to the Holy Ghost. I would urge you to be cautious in trusting the dating of the Egyptian Dynasties. In fact, Egyptology is a prime example of science that can't be trusted. The lies and disinformation certainly point to the adversary's keen interest in keeping true meanings hidden within Egyptology, don't you think? "Tombs of the pharaohs," is still the mainstream stance on the function of pyramids. Abraham 1:25 Now the first government of Egypt was established by Pharaoh, the eldest son of Egyptus, the daughter of Ham, and it was after the manner of the government of Ham, which was patriarchal. He also happened to be a righteous man who attempted to imitate the Priesthood Patriarchal Order. Adamic may have still been spoken before the language was confounded - or Amun / Ahman is just a pure coincidence as well as the many, many coincidences I point out in my article.
  14. This was a fantastic video, thank you! It's funny watching scientists try to explain the inexplicable. "Well we know they didn't know how to work iron like this, so meteor!" Or ... they did know how to work iron like this and the other graves that had similar swords have all been robbed!
  15. I should have also mentioned that Noah's grandkids were likely still speaking Adamic, so "Amun" and "Ahman" being so closely related may not be a coincidence. The tower of Babel was closer to Abraham than Noah in the 10 generations that came between the two patriarchs. https://www.lds.org/bc/content/shared/content/images/gospel-library/manual/32489/32489_000_004_06_dispensation.pdf
  16. The Lord will decide. We of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are only one piece on God's chess board. How will the sons of levi be purified ala Malachi 3? Hezekiah purified the levites in his day as a righteous king in a time of wickedness. Isaiah was the prophet of Hezekiahs day who used the people and places of his day in his prophecies to layer the prophecies of the end times. The Jews need the purified levites as well as the one who purifies them first before a temple will be of any value imho.
  17. Admittedly, I'm no Egyptian scholar, though it appears brother Robert F. Smith has read up on this topic quite extensively. From the wicki entries, Ra has been combined both with Amun and Horus. Amun-Ra, and Horus-Ra. What's interesting about Amun, to me, is he is the "self-created" "god of gods" which we may equate to Elohim. Then there's this fairly large coincidence in the nomenclature. Amun is very similar to Ahman as in Adam-Ondi-Ahman - the place where Adam walked with God where Ahman may be a name or title for God. If it's a title, then Ahman-Ra may indeed be a more complete name, possibly. Bear in mind the great-grandson of Noah was the first Pharoah. There's more to this, though I can't recall off the top of my head. If I recall correctly, there's something more to the naming of Pharoahs. There's "Amenhotep" where "Amen" could also be a derivative of "Ahman." Akhenaten - the Pharoah that tried to change Egyptian religion "back" to one God (who some believe was an extra terrestrial.) IIRC, "Aten" means something. "Ankh" is in the name of his son "Tutankhamen" as well as "Amen. "Tut" - "Ankh" - "Amen" though again, admittedly, that's just my quick break down analysis that may not hold water. But, if Akenaten was trying to return to the "old ways," i.e. the Priesthood, patriarchal order, then perhaps there was more to Tutankhamen's name. As of completing that last sentence I had no idea what Tutankamun meant, but here it is: Tutankhamun means "Living Image of Amun" (From: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tutankhamun) That is very similar to what we learn from the first vision where the Lord is the living image of Elohim and where Seth is the image of Adam. Very interesting indeed! Perhaps King Tut's tomb was preserved for a reason. Edit: If you look up Tutankhamun in hieroglyphs, sure enough the ankh is in there. The Ankh represents the power of life, or resurrection. The below statement is also from the Wiki: In hieroglyphs, the name Tutankhamun was typically written Amen-tut-ankh, because of a scribal custom that placed a divine name at the beginning of a phrase to show appropriate reverence.
  18. https://lordoftheseraphim.blogspot.com/2019/02/horus-abraham-and-davidic-servant-part.html?m=1 There are many interesting parallels between Egyptian mythology and Christianity. The scholar and skeptic will say Jesus was derived from the Osiris mythology. The believer will say the inverse is true as Osiris is but a manifestation of the truth of Jesus Christ. Latter-day revelation reinforces the former as the Book of Abraham teaches Egypt was founded by a righteous Pharoah, the great grandson of Noah, and though they were cursed through Ham to be restricted from the Priesthood, they modeled their society after the Priesthood order. Is it any wonder so much truth can be seen reflected in Egyptian society? Eventually Egypt turned to idolatry. But as with the Catholic church where a perversion occurred across centuries where saints are worshiped and idols created, the foundation of truth can still be seen. It's wrong to worship and pray to Saint Peter idols, yet Peter himself was real and righteous. Likewise, Horus, the son of Osiris, reflects the many truths and scriptures regarding the Davidic heir. The article linked above focuses on those similarities between the horus mythology and the scriptures of the Lord's servant. Moreover there are many links to Horus throughout the facsimiles that reinforce my understanding of who the servant is and what his mission will be. Enjoy
  19. I think folks are rarely transparent about why they leave the church. The leaders have gone astray or the church is wrong on gays, etc. is a transparent excuse for someone who wants to appear to take the high road of apostasy (lol) when in fact they're looking to embrace the world by walking away from the church.
  20. There is one path to godhood. Have a read of the first 20-30 verses of D&C 93 with this in mind.
