Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
(Old Testament Psalms 25:22)
Shalom to the people of Israel everywhere. Hold your peace for the LORD hath brought forth our righteousness. Come, and let us declare in Zion the work of the LORD our God. I am here in the humility of the LORD just to make you remember by way of admonition and exhortation and not by way of commandment, the will of the LORD or the Lord’s Law of WAR and/or the Lord’s rules of engagement.
Israel the LORD is calling you from the paths of sin and error. Do not make preemptive haste towards the enemy. It is a fatal hubris. Any just and honest general knows it. Please, wait upon the LORD and remember the Lord’s own rules of engagement. They are as valid today as they were anciently when they were given unto the fathers and who can deny it?
It is true that the life of the people in the nation of Israel at home and abroad is endangered by the many infamies, threats attacks and trespasses inflicted upon our people ever since we were given as a covenant to our fathers by the LORD our God the Land of our inheritances. But let us pause for a moment just to check if we have done our part to WARN WELL our enemy in a formal and satisfactory manner as the LORD has commanded it.
And it is that we do not ever initiate or attract our enemies that seek our life unless being attacked first; but only after firsts having offered peace; second after having announced peace; and third having given to our enemies as a gesture of kindness an ultimate of peace. If we have not, let us lift up the standard of peace unto them. And these formalities need to be conducted in the eyes to all concerned and all who can see openly. Or it needs to be performed by the proper channels and anchors formally and in a satisfactory manner thrice.
And as the scripture says: he that believes in the LORD, the stone that the builders rejected, shall not make haste. The LORD is first in WAR; however, hereafter is a modern, truthful and unequivocal interpretation of the Rules of Engagement given to us all by the express voice of the LORD in these the latter-days which say unto me and unto you this. Therefore apply you ears attentively to hear the will of the LORD who says and has said thru his servant the prophets. For he is the same yesterday, today and forever; and he does not change to the left or the right for straight are all his ways.
Now, I speak unto you concerning your families—if men will smite you, or your families, once, and ye bear it patiently and revile not against them, neither seek revenge, ye shall be rewarded. But if ye bear it not patiently, it shall be accounted unto you as being meted out as a just measure unto you.
And again, if your enemy shall smite you the second time, and you revile not against your enemy, and bear it patiently, your reward shall be an hundred fold. And again, if he shall smite you the third time, and ye bear it patiently, your reward shall be doubled unto you four–fold; And these three testimonies shall stand against your enemy if he repent not, and shall not be blotted out.
And now, verily I say unto you, if that enemy shall escape my vengeance, that he be not brought into judgment before me, then ye shall see to it that ye warn him in my name, that he come no more upon you, neither upon your family, even your children's children unto the third and fourth generation.
And then, if he shall come upon you or your children, or your children's children unto the third and fourth generation, I have delivered thine enemy into thine hands; And then if thou wilt spare him, thou shalt be rewarded for thy righteousness; and also thy children and thy children's children unto the third and fourth generation. Nevertheless, thine enemy is in thine hands; and if thou rewardest him according to his works thou art justified; if he has sought thy life, and thy life is endangered by him, thine enemy is in thine hands and thou art justified.
Behold, this is the law I gave unto my servant Nephi, and thy fathers, Joseph, and Jacob, and Isaac, and Abraham, and all mine ancient prophets and apostles.
And again, this is the law that I gave unto mine ancients, that they should not go out unto battle against any nation, kindred, tongue, or people, save I, the Lord, commanded them.
And if any nation, tongue, or people should proclaim war against them, they should first lift a standard of peace unto that people, nation, or tongue; And if that people did not accept the offering of peace, neither the second nor the third time, they should bring these testimonies before the Lord; Then I, the Lord, would give unto them a commandment, and justify them in going out to battle against that nation, tongue, or people.
And I, the Lord, would fight their battles, and their children's battles, and their children's children's, until they had avenged themselves on all their enemies, to the third and fourth generation. Behold, this is an ensample unto all people, saith the Lord your God, for justification before me.
And again, verily I say unto you, if after thine enemy has come upon thee the first time, he repent and come unto thee praying thy forgiveness, thou shalt forgive him, and shalt hold it no more as a testimony against thine enemy— And so on unto the second and third time; and as oft as thine enemy repenteth of the trespass wherewith he has trespassed against thee, thou shalt forgive him, until seventy times seven. And if he trespass against thee and repent not the first time, nevertheless thou shalt forgive him. And if he trespass against thee the second time, and repent not, nevertheless thou shalt forgive him. And if he trespass against thee the third time, and repent not, thou shalt also forgive him. But if he trespass against thee the fourth time thou shalt not forgive him, but shalt bring these testimonies before the Lord; and they shall not be blotted out until he repent and reward thee four–fold in all things wherewith he has trespassed against thee.
And if he do this, thou shalt forgive him with all thine heart; and if he do not this, I, the Lord, will avenge thee of thine enemy an hundred–fold; And upon his children, and upon his children's children of all them that hate me, unto the third and fourth generation. But if the children shall repent, or the children's children, and turn to the Lord their God, with all their hearts and with all their might, mind, and strength, and restore four–fold for all their trespasses wherewith they have trespassed, or wherewith their fathers have trespassed, or their fathers' fathers, then thine indignation shall be turned away; And vengeance shall no more come upon them, saith the Lord thy God, and their trespasses shall never be brought any more as a testimony before the Lord against them. Amen.
(Doctrine and Covenants Section 98:23 - 48)
I hope that your generals, friends and counselors have made these things know to you beforehand. If they did not, same becomes upon them. But now in the kindness of the LORD you have his rules og engagement again. I know as the LORD lives, that If you do these things as you see, hear or feel, your destroyers or those that insist to afflict you with all sorts of infamous threats will not prevail against you for the LORD has spoken it.
And to give you added strength and courage, I am also here to remind you hoping that you have not forgotten the words of Isaiah that say that all those who fight against us shall pass away as a fading flower. In fact, Can’t you see already that all around you the fulfillment of the promises of the LORD? Is there no one else that can see that so far those that fight against the people of the LORD, or those that fight Zion or that distress Ariel will kiss the Rod? They have been and are still fighting each other to oblivion? For it is written:
And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision. It shall even be as when an hungry man dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh; but he awaketh, and, behold, he is faint, and his soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion.
(Old Testament Isaiah 29:7 - 8)
Know this also, that perfect love casts away all fear. And I love Israel more than I love my own flesh and blood. Therefore, fear not what the enemy may say or do for they have no power over any of us unless it is granted from above. The enemy of the people of the LORD may desire our oblivion. And as in days past, they come towards us in defiance with spear, with sword and javelin, but they have forgotten that it is not us that they challenge but the Commander of the host of Israel. And as in days past, if you endure it well and patiently the LORD will deliver you as he has delivered me. For it is also written:
he that believeth shall not make haste.
(Old Testament Isaiah 28:16)
But remember also that our deliverance will not be because of our righteousness, for among us there is none, for as the prophet said, all tables are full of vomit. The Lord has promised and he will deliver for he cannot lie. And he will do it not necessarily for us but for his name sake, he will give us the needed aid. Therefore be strong and take courage as I do today, and put your trust in the LORD for once since the ancient Glory of the people of Israel under King David. Or have you forgotten the Psalm of our ancient King David which says:
UNTO thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me. Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause. Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old. Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.
Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way. The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way. All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great. What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth. The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net. Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses. Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred. O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee. Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
(Old Testament Psalms 25:1 - 22)
For the multitude of our enemies shall fade like a flower and pass away like an old garment in the furnace as fuel to the fire. They are ripening in their own iniquity and are drunk with their own blood and they will fall in the same pit that they have rigged for the people of the LORD.
It shall even be as when an hungry man dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh; but he awaketh, and, behold, he is faint, and his soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion. Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.
(Old Testament Isaiah 29:8 - 9)
It is time, oh my people of the house Israel; yea, the outcast of Israel and the dispersed of Judah to wake up from the great slumber, to come make Aliyah or to home to the LORD in Lands of our inheritance. And it is time to prepare to meet our God and to apply our ear to hear and understand the word of the LORD which is and has for the longest time calling us all to amend our ways. This is so that the LORD can heal us all in order to enter into his rest. For in Zion and In Jerusalem there is balm of Gilead. And we would have healed Babylon also but she refused be healed, therefore it is time to get out of her and to forsake her. Of this it is written:
Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD's hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad. Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed: howl for her; take balm for her pain, if so be she may be healed. We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.
The LORD hath brought forth our righteousness: come, and let us declare in Zion the work of the LORD our God.
Make bright the arrows; gather the shields: the LORD hath raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes: for his device is against Babylon, to destroy it; because it is the vengeance of the LORD, the vengeance of his temple. Set up the standard upon the walls of Babylon, make the watch strong, set up the watchmen, prepare the ambushes: for the LORD hath both devised and done that which he spake against the inhabitants of Babylon. O thou that dwellest upon many waters, abundant in treasures, thine end is come, and the measure of thy covetousness.
(Old Testament Jeremiah 51:7 - 13)
For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered. And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
Wherefore the Lord said: Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men. Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us? Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?
Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?
And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness. The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off: that make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.
Therefore thus saith the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale. But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel. They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.
(Old Testament Isaiah 29:10 - 24)
Here are the words of the sealed book made plain unto you
Wherefore, the Lord God will proceed to make bare his arm in the eyes of all the nations, in bringing about his covenants and his gospel unto those who are of the house of Israel. Wherefore, he will bring them again out of captivity, and they shall be gathered together to the lands of their inheritance; and they shall be brought out of obscurity and out of darkness; and they shall know that the Lord is their Savior and their Redeemer, the Mighty One of Israel.
And the blood of that great and abominable church, which is the whore of all the earth, shall turn upon their own heads; for they shall war among themselves, and the sword of their own hands shall fall upon their own heads, and they shall be drunken with their own blood.
And every nation which shall war against thee, O house of Israel, shall be turned one against another, and they shall fall into the pit which they digged to ensnare the people of the Lord. And all that fight against Zion shall be destroyed, and that great whore, who hath perverted the right ways of the Lord, yea, that great and abominable church, shall tumble to the dust and great shall be the fall of it.
(Book of Mormon 1 Nephi 22:11 - 14)
If I had the license and space to write, I would declare all hidden things unto you if the LORD willed, but let these words suffice for now. These things I say not of myself, but as the LORD has spoken he shall also fulfill. And I write it solemnly as a witness unto the truth and with proper authority in the Hoy name of the holy one of Israel, even in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
