ALPHABETIC HISTORY of CIVILIZATION
ANCIENT and MODERN GENEALOGIES


PREFACE
This book evaluates historical knowledge as it relates to ancient and modern genealogies.
Information gleaned from social contexts, both secular and religious, are reviewed, using
modern genealogical research specialist standards: to properly reconstruct and correctly
portray real historical lives and family pedigrees.  Cultural, religious and family tradition,
(their stated facts and viewpoints), are surveyed within given ancient contexts of
primary
and secondary record sources, as handed down for the benefit of our modern generation.
Modern claims of genealogical attachment to biblical records are noted, with remarks.

Complete Bible Genealogy

Pliny the Elder, circa A.D. 23 - 79, scholar, historian, and scientific encyclopedist,
born at Novum Comum in northern Italy but mainly resident of Rome, mentions
the Phoenicians in his thirty seven book work:
Natural History.  This record,
considered by some as the apex of ancient science after the time of the school
of Aristotle, stated that: "To the
Phoenician people belongs the glory of having
invented letters and discovered the sciences of astronomy, navigation and the art
of war."  In
Cory's Ancient Fragments, by Isaac Preston Cory, Esq., mention is made
of the Greek historian previous to the Christian era, by name called Eupolemus.
This
Eupolemus notes that in the tenth generation, Abraham lived in Camarina of
Babylonia [Urie], a city of the Chaldeans, and was of noble heritage and superior
to all others in wisdom.  Abraham was stated to be the inventor of astrology and
the Chaldaean magic; esteemed of God due to his eminent and recognized piety.
Under the direction of the God of Heaven, Abraham removed and lived in
Phoenicia, and there taught the Phoenicians the motions of the sun and moon
and all other things, for which reason, he was held in great reverence, by the
Phoenician King.

Dr. Louis Henry Feldman writes about "Proselytes and 'Sympathizers' in the Light
of the New Inscriptions from Aphrodisias", in
Revue des Études Juives,
Volume CXLVIII, Issue (3-4), juillet-décenbre 1989, pages 265-305; that:
"The Jews' reputed skill in astrology may likewise have proved an attraction.
The Graeco-Jewish historian
Artapanus (circa 100 BCE) (ap.
Eusebius,
Praeparatio Evangelica 9.18.1) states that it was Abraham who taught
the Egyptian pharaoh the science of astrology.  Similar statements are
found in pseudo-Eupolemus (ap. Eusebius, Praeparatio Evangelica 9.17.8)
and Josephus (
Antiquities of the Jews 1.167).

Indeed, Hadrian (
Scriptores Historia Augusta,
Quadrigae Tyrannorum 8.3)
remarks that there is no chief of a synagogue who is not an astrologer
(mathematicus), soothsayer (haruspex), or anointer (aliptes).  Moreover, in
the middle of the second century,
Vettius Valens, in his astrological work,
Anthologiae (2.28,29), refers to Abraham as a most wonderful astrological
authority.  Furthermore, Abraham's skill in astrology is mentioned no fewer
than four times in
Julius Firmicus Maternus' fourth century astrological treatise,
the
Matheseos (4: Proemium 5, 17.2, 17.5, and 18.1).  Firmicus' contemporary
Julian (Against the Galileans) remarks that Abraham employed the method
of divination from shooting stars and from the flight of birds.  Since, we may
remark, proselytes are regarded as children of Abraham, himself the first
proselyte, they would presumably identify with him as an astrologer."

Critical analysis of evidence discussed within these records shows some
historical validity of the existence of an Abraham, connected with knowledge
of planetary motions, practice of an internationally recognized religious priesthood,
as well as being a teacher and communicator through letters and writings. Secondary
evidence is thus provided for the statement given in the
Book of Abraham,
translated from papyrus by
Joseph Smith, Jr., from Chapter 1, Verse 31; namely:
"But the records of the fathers, even the patriarchs, concerning the right of Priesthood,
the Lord my God preserved in mine own hands; therefore a knowledge of the beginning
of the creation, and also of the planets, and of the stars, as they were made known unto
the fathers, have I kept even unto this day, and I shall endeavor to write some of these
things upon this record, for the benefit of my posterity that shall come after me."
The Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., obtained Hebrew language education / instructions
from the
erudite Jew, Joshua Seixas: Collection: Papers of Seixas Family | CJH;
Joshua/James Seixas (1802-1874): Jewish Apostasy and Christian Hebraism . . .;
First American Jewish Families, by Rabbi Malcolm Henry Stern, FASG (basis for:
The Grandees_ America’s Sephardic Elite - Stephen Birmingham (pdf).

Additional
secondary evidence is in the Grammar & Alphabet of the Egyptian Language,
in which Grammar, from the
Joseph Smith, Jr. Papers. the ancient patriarchs are listed:
Phah eh         The first man, or Adam, coming from Adam -
                       Keys or right over Patriarchal right by appointment;
                       Also know as:
Ba eth Ka - Adam or the first man, or first king
Ba eth Kee   The next from Adam, one ordained under him,
                       a patriarch or the right of the first born [
Seth]
Ba eth Ki      The third patriarch: or right of the first born [Enos]
Ba eth Ko     The fourth patriarch from Adam the right of first born [Cainan]
Ba eth Ku     The fifth high priest from Adam [Mahalaleel]

Joseph Smith Translating Genesis - BYU Studies
[Research Note: Testimony of Willard Chase, Manchester, Ontario County, New York;
dated 1833, states "I became acquainted with the Smith family, known as the authors
of the Mormon Bible, in the year 1820. . . . In the year 1822, I was engaged in digging
a well. I employed Alvin and Joseph Smith to assist me; the latter of whom is now
known as the Mormon prophet. After digging about twenty feet below the surface
of the earth, we discovered a singularly appearing stone, which excited my curiosity.
I brought it to the top of the well, and as we were examining it, Joseph put it into his
hat, and then his face into the top of his hat. It has been said by Smith, That he brought
the stone from the well . . . "
Seer Stones implies their use by seers. So, the very unusual
significance of this commentary, along with the testimony of William Purple, is location;
that "the stone was under the roots of a tree or shrub as large as his arm, situated
about a mile up a small stream that puts in on the South side of Lake Erie, not far
from the New York and Pennsylvania line"; as well as "two small ones on the beach
in Nauvoo . . . Joseph Said there is a stone for every person on the earth." We know
from the Book of Mormon that there was a complete conversion of the
remnants left
in the Americas, after the appearance of Jesus Christ. These people would certainly
have been entitled to individual seer stones, as well as righteous Jaredites and later
righteous Nephites and Lamanites. Nevertheless, much of the Book of Mormon data,
may be buried deeper in the ground, under large overgrowth, and many feet down.]
The Ages of the Patriarchs in the Joseph Smith Translation | Religious Studies Center
[Research Note: What is known about the Adamic language? Answer: The pure Adamic
language, or the language of Adam and Eve, was the language in the Garden of Eden,
prior to the fall of Man, by the partaking of the forbidden fruit. It is attested to factually,
because Adam and Eve spoke directly with Jehovah, or Jesus Christ, in the said Garden.
It was a "pure" language because Adam and Eve were taught to speak it by the Creator.
The language of man became degraded, as man became more carnal, sensual, devilish,
and insensitive to the promptings of the Holy Ghost; globally divisive at the Tower of Babel.
The words spoken by man, since the beginning, are based upon physical characteristics
of the mouth itself. This is fairly clearly noted from the Egyptian Grammar and Alphabet;
showing a, e, i, o and u, as noted above. Characteristics designating the various sounds
may differ, but the verbal sounds are yet all the same, as the breath of life exits a mouth;
or those exiting the
nasal cavity; or both. What are the different types of speech sounds?
So, it can be conclusively stated, that the restoration of the
pure Adamic Language, is one
of concentration of positive verbal interactions coming from Zion, or those who are pure,
in their hearts; blessings, not cursing, or swear words, that divide feelings and emotions.
The closest English evaluation available in modern science are the words directly spoken
and extensively repeated to
Joseph Smith, Jr., during Moroni’s Visit, in his home bedroom.
[While he was conversing with me about the plates, the vision was opened to my mind that
I could see the place where the plates were deposited, and that so clearly and distinctly
that I knew the place again when I visited it.] It is critically important to note Joseph stated
"He quoted many other passages of scripture, and offered many explanations which cannot
be mentioned here." / "The vision was opened to my mind that I could see the place where
the plates were deposited." Thus, a contextual interrelationship co-connective with a pure
Adamic Language, is direct revelatory experiences; or, seeing and hearing written data;
similar to Images presented in the writings of Mahonri Moriacumer; a Google™ Search.
Reading the words of the brother of Jared are similar to looking into a
Urim and Thummim.
Isaiah 2:3.: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Hebrews 4: writings were mighty even unto the overpowering of man to read them, as
they pierce even unto the very eternal souls of all mankind. Note: Jared and His Brother.
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword,
piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow,
and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature
that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of
him with whom we have to do. Seeing then that we have a great High Priest, that is
passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. Again,
this Priesthood, which was in the beginning of the world, at its creation, and shall also
be restored in the end of the world; when Enoch and his City return in Terrestrial Glory;
having all power over all the elements by the words of Our Lord and Master Jesus Christ;
which glory was clearly manifest in all His miracles; the faith of the Messiah of the Jews.]

The
Pearl of Great Price and Book of Abraham testify "the book of Abraham should
be evaluated on the basis of what it claims to be--Abraham's own account of his life."
The Deseret News, Salt Lake City, November 27, 1967, notes the finding of eleven
papyrus fragments, in the NYC Metropolitan Museum of Art.  The back of the papyri
were pasted down to paper with "drawings of a temple and maps of the Kirtland, Ohio
area."  An affidavit of Emma Smith stated that these papyri had been in the possession
of
Joseph Smith, Jr.  According to this source, the Biblical creation story, the deluge,
"the records of the fathers, even the patriarchs," appear therefore as genealogical
primary source records, transcribed by Abraham from "preserved" and "kept" data,
handed down from generation to generation.  As noted by the
History of the Church:,
Vol. 2, Ch. 16-17, pgs. 235-238, July 1835,
Joseph Smith, Jr. determined that "one of the
rolls contained the writings of Abraham, another the writings of Joseph of Egypt"
and he "was continually engaged in translating an alphabet to the Book of Abraham,
and arranging a grammar of the Egyptian language as practiced by the ancients."
History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

From a genealogical research standpoint, "arranging a grammar of the Egyptian
language as practiced by the ancients", suggests that all the ancient patriarchs,
beginning with Adam, the Ancient of Days, were skilled in the art of record keeping.
This thought is further clarified in the Book of Moses, P of G P, Chapter 6, verses 5-9:
And a book of remembrance was kept, in the which was recorded, in the language
of Adam, for it was given unto as many as called upon God to write by the spirit of
inspiration;  And by them their children were taught to read and write, having a
language which was pure and undefiled.  Now this same Priesthood, which was
in the beginning, shall be in the end of the world also.  Now this prophecy Adam spake,
as he was moved upon by the Holy Ghost, and a genealogy was kept of the children
of God.  And this was the book of the generations of Adam, saying: In the day that God
created man, in the likeness of God made he him; In the image of his own body, male
and female, created he them, and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day
when they were created and became living souls in the land upon the footstool of God.

The KJV Bible, Old Testament record, also declares in Exodus, Chapter 24, verse 4:
"
And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord, and rose up early in the morning, and
builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel
."
In Chapter 5, verse 1-2 of
Genesis, Moses recorded: "This is the book of the generations
of Adam.  In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; Male and
female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when
they were created.
"  The cross comparison of information shows a correct match of Biblical
Genesis, Chapter 5, verse 1, with the Pearl of Great Price, Book of Moses, Chapter 6,
verse 8.  Clearly, internal source evidence suggests primary source documents, or
copies thereof, going back to the time of Adam and (Eve - the Mother of all Living),
were available to
Moses, who then wrote or copied them for himself and other Israelites.


GENEALOGIES:
Genealogical Tables of the Sovereigns of the World,
from the earliest to the present period; exhibiting in each table their immediate
successors, collateral branches, and the duration of their respective reigns;
so constructed as to form a series of chronology; and including the genealogy
of many other personages and families distinguished in scared and profane history;
particularly all the nobility of these kingdoms descended from princes.
[The editor would have gladly quoted the various authorities which have assisted him
in the execution of his work, under the heads upon which they were consulted, if it
could have been done without crouding (sic) the Tables, and thereby depriving them
of their principal advantages--perspicuity, beauty, and uniformity. He must, therefore,
content himself with mentioning those to whom he is most indebted, which are,
The Bible, The Universal History, with many particular histories of different kingdoms,
the Classic authors, Anderson's Genealogies,
Rollin, Sandford, Rapin, Guthrie, Collins,
Crawford, Lodge, and other Peerages. His chief guides in Chronology were Newton

Adam, re: Joseph Smith, Jr.]
      - See: Discourse, 17 January 1843, as Reported by Wilford Woodruff, Page 2
        Br Joseph spoke to some length on the kingdom of God & the Baptism of John,
        he said the kingdom of God was set upon the earth in all ages from the days
        of Adam to the presant (sic) time (1) whenever there was a man on earth who had
        authority to Administar (sic) the ordinances of the gospel or a priest of God &
        unto such a man God did reveal his will    Concerning the Baptism of John it was
        the Baptism of repentance unto remission of sins for the receiving of the Holy Ghost
        & it was the gospel Baptism. These were questions which had been in debate for
        many years & in some degree among the Saints. He also spoke upon the subject
        of honor & dishonor &c [p. [2]] - Footnotes - [1] JS consistently taught that people
        who were alive before the establishment of the early Christian church knew of
        and worshipped Jesus Christ. Both the Book of Mormon and JS's revision of the
        Old Testament included teachings about Christ and Christian worship predating
        New Testament times. There were, according to JS, "dispensations and keys and
        powers and glories" that had been "revealed from the days of Adam even to the
        present time," Adam having been the person to whom "Christ was first revealed."
        . . . [2] JS elaborated on earlier instruction, given in 1840, that "the keys of the
        Kingdom of God" were on the earth "in all ages of the world" and constituted
        the means by which "all knowledge, doctrine, the plan of salvation and every
        important truth is revealed from heaven." According to JS, this pattern of revealing
        truth to humanity would continue "to the end of time." . . . [3] JS's reference to the
        church as the kingdom of God in this sermon responded to various disputes in the
        nineteenth century among American Protestants regarding the original founding
        date of Christ's church and earthly kingdom. . . . to the day of Pentecost . . . etc.

      A dispassionate evaluation of records of beginnings of ancient societies indicates that

      have no fundamental attachable physical reality, outside of archaeological findings.
      Physical determinism of mankind is only established within Judao-Christian theology.
     
Faith in the Messiah originates existence as always following from prior conditions.
      An all knowing God eliminates all universal human contingencies and indeterminism.
      The Prophet, Seer, Revelator, and Translator, Joseph Smith, Jr., High Priest President
      of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, spoke, at the Temple in
Nauvoo.
      Joseph spoke on the Spirit of Elias-- the Spirit of Elijah and the Spirit of Messiah--
      the Spirit of Elias is a forerunner same as John the Baptist-- the Spirit of Elijah is the
      sealing power-- to seal the hearts of the Fathers to the children-- and the children to
      the Parents-- as Paul declared that the Saints of the last days could not be perfect with-
      out them-- neither can they be perfect without us-- the Spirit of Messiah is all power in
      Heaven and in Earth-- Enthroned in the Heavens as King of Kings and Lord of Lords--
      See:
Creation: The Creation (The Creation) and Doctrine and Covenants 77.
      Furthermore,
Doctrine and Covenants 101, verses 32-34, validates that current,
      modern science, will never be able to comprehend or ascertain the origins,
      or destiny of this earth, the solar system, or the Universe; except on the principle
      of valiant service and sacrifice in the cause of our King Jesus Christ, who will reveal
      all things at His coming in Glory. Keys of the Universe are restricted to all worthy
      Celestial administrators, such as our Ancient of Days, Father
Adam.  When Son Ahman
      comes, Adam delivers up his stewardship to Christ, that which was delivered to him as
      holding the keys of the Universe, but retains his standing as head of the human family.

  - SHEM: The Jerusalem Targum, and Jonathan ben Uziel in his Targum, and several
    other Jewish writers, suppose Melchizedek to be the same with Shem, the son of Noah;
    and this supposition has been ingeniously supported by the editors of Calmet's Dict.
    in their Enquiries and Discuss. Vol. III. . . . The Arabic version, in Gen. xiv. 18, renders
    . . . Malko Aladal, considering the word as an appellative rather than a Proper name.
    Probably the Arabic translator might be influenced by the customary name given to
    royalty in his country; for . . . many of the Mohammedan princes were, as a token of
    respect, distinguished by this appellation . . . Malck al Afdhal. It may not be improper
    here to observe, that the Salem above mentioned, was, most probably, Jerusalem,
    antiently (sic) known by the name of Salem--See Ps. lxxxvi. 2. And thus the writers
    of the Targums call Melchizedek . . . King of Jerusalem. . . . Porro Salem [read
    Melchizedek] rex Hierusalem dicitur, quae prius Salem appellabatur.
    - LDS Studies: The Connection between Melchizedek and Shem
      Melchizedek received his priesthood through the lineage of his fathers, even till Noah
      [means my priesthood came down in time from Adam to Noah, my father]; from Noah
      till Enoch through the lineage of their fathers [means my priesthood lineage descended
      from Adam via Enoch to Noah, my father, through the lineage of their fathers]; for this
      priesthood was received from Enoch to Abel, who received the priesthood by the hand
      of his father Adam. The priesthood lineage is very clearly recorded; it is a descending
      pedigree lineage, anciently from the man Adam, to the honorable Abel, his slain son
      [who was a brother of Seth, another son of Adam: the actual lineage ancestry of Noah].
      [Research Note: Do not interpret ancient genealogies from the standpoint, or viewpoint,
      of modern, unlearned genealogists, who concentrate on creating ascending research
      pedigrees. Until the Patriarchal Priesthood endowments and covenants were completely
      broken, and records discontinued, or intentionally destroyed; genealogies established,
      in the Ancient Book of Remembrance, were recorded as righteous descending posterity.
      Our Father Abraham clearly states he received handed down records from his fathers.
      Apostle Bruce R. McConkie was incorrect in his creation of gaps in the record source.]
      Now Melchizedek was a man of faith, who wrought righteousness; and when a child
      he feared God, and stopped the mouths of lions, and quenched the violence of fire.
      And thus, having been approved of God, he was ordained an high priest after the
      order of the covenant which God made with Enoch. Shem, the great pre/post flood
      High Priest heir of Noah, was ordained an high priest after the order of the covenant
      which God made with the pre-flood High Priest Enoch; for as a child, Shem feared
      God. Shem stopped the mouths of lions, and quenched the violence of fire, prior
      to the Flood, since after the Flood there was no general wickedness left and there
      was only a minimal number of lions remaining upon the earth. Additionally, according
      to Alma, Chapter 13, of the Book of Mormon, Melchizedek was a High Priest, and was
      a king over the land of Salem . . . for he was the king of Salem, and he did reign under
      his father. Noah lived from 2944 B.C. to 1994 B.C. Shem, or Melchizedek, the High Priest
      lived from 2452 B.C. to 1852 B.C. Abraham lived in the time period between circa --
      2062 B.C. to 1827 B.C.. Under the Patriarchal Order, Terah practiced idolatry; unable
      to receive tithing.  Under the Patriarchal Order, Nahor died in 2013 B.C.; Shem was alive.
      [The Book of Jubilees suggests Nahor was taught idolatry by his father.] Under the
      Patriarchal Order, Serug died in 1961 B.C.; Shem was alive. [The Book of Jubilees
      suggests Serug worshipped idols.] Under the Patriarchal Order, Reu died in 1984 B.C.;
      Shem was alive. [The Chronicles of Jerahmeel suggest he had the spirit of prophesy;
      was righteous.] Under the Patriarchal Order, Peleg died in 2014 B.C.; Shem was alive.
      [The Chronicles of Jerahmeel suggest he was righteous.] Under the Patriarchal Order,
      Eber / Heber died in 1823 B.C. [Shem was alive until 1852 B.C. and Abraham died
      between 1887 / 1827 B.C. Abraham either died in 1887 B.C., before Shem died,
      or outlived him by 25 years. Nevertheless, Eber signifies "the region beyond";
      unconnected to Salem.] Under the Patriarchal Order, Salah / Shelah died in 1884 B.C.;
      Shem was alive. Under the Patriarchal Order, Arphaxad died in 1914 B.C.; Shem
      was alive. Shem would have been King of Salem after the time of the flood, a city
      of righteousness, (after they were called to repentance), under the direction of his father
      Noah, who was also a King, for over a period of 350 years. . . . Finally, The Priesthood
      was first given To Adam: he obtained to (crossed out) the first Presidency & held the
      Keys of it, from genration (sic) to Generation; he obtained it in the creation before
      the world was formed as in Gen. 1, 26:28, - he had dominion given him over every living
      Creature. He is Michael, the Archangel, spoken of in the Scriptures, -- Then to Noah
      who is Gabriel, he stands next in authority to Adam in the Priesthood; he was called
      of God to this office & was the Father of all living in his day, & To him was Given the
      Dominion. These men held keys, first on earth, & then in Heaven. -- . . . Dan VII Speaks
      of the Ancient of Days, he means the oldest man, our Father Adam, Michael; he will
      call his children together . . . Both Adam and Noah also obtained the Priesthood Title
      of "King"; or in other words, all three were Prophets, Priests, and Kings, in their own
      right; Adam holding furthermore, the very Keys of the Universe, under the direct
      jurisdiction of Jesus Christ. [Also known as the Jehovah God of the Old Testament.]
    - Letter to James Arlington Bennet, 13 November 1843, Page 4b
      Joseph Smith, Jr. says: Shall I, who hold the keys of the last kingdom, in which is the
      dispensation of the fulness of all things spoken by the mouths of all the holy prophets
      since the world began; under the sealing power of the Melchizedek priesthood,
      shall I stoop from the sublime authority of Almighty God, to be handled as a monkey's
      cat's paw, -- and pettify myself into a clown to act the farce of political demagoguery?
      No, no verily; no! . . . I solve mathematical problems of Universities; with truth . . .

      . . . Abraham received the Priesthood from Melchesedec (sic) . . . and it was this
      same Melchizedek to whom Abraham paid tithes; yea, even our father Abraham

      as the ancient apostles were. [Research Note: Since the Patriarchal Priesthood
      was the former, and only Priesthood Order of the ancient Church of Jesus Christ,
      that was upon the earth, in the days of Abraham, then it is necessarily self evident
      that Melchizedek was one of the ancient ancestors of our Father Abraham.] . . .

      they have power given them to seal up the Saints unto eternal life."

    [Research Note: The world and earth are not synonymous terms. (The commentaries
    by the Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., are a complete repudiation of modern science. . . .)
    The world is the human family. This earth was organized or formed out of other
    planets which were broke up and remodelled (sic) and made into the one on which
    we live (i.e., unorganized, pulverized elements). The elements are eternal. That which
    has a beginning . . . will surely have an end. Take a ring, it is without beginning or
    end; cut it for a beginning place, and at the same time you will have an ending place.
    A key, every principle proceeding from God is eternal, and any principle which is not
    eternal is of the Devil. The sun has no beginning or end, the rays which proceed from
    himself (the Sun) have no bounds, consequently are eternal (i.e., a Celestial Planet,
    or glorified, eternal Star). So it is with God. If the soul of man had a beginning it will
    surely have an end. In the translation; "without form and void" it should read "empty
    and desolate" The word "created" should be formed or organized. . . . Observations
    on the Sectarian God. That which is without body or parts is nothing. There is no other
    God in heaven but that God who has flesh and bones (in a Celestial state of being).
    . . .
The great principle of happiness consists in having a body. . . . All beings who
    have bodies have power over those who have not. . . . This earth will be rolled back
    into the presence of God and crowned with Celestial Glory (i.e., become like our Sun).

    [Research Note: Britannica improperly divides the writings of Isaiah into two areas
    of authorship, ignoring other resources presenting findings on
Understanding Isaiah.
    As mentioned, Nephi taught that the words of Isaiah "are plain unto all those that
    are filled with the spirit of prophecy". The Book of Mormon prophet Nephi further
    stated concerning Joseph, son of Jacob, that "He truly prophesied concerning all
    his seed. And the prophecies which he wrote, there are not many greater." So this
    resolves all problems. The Book of Mormon is true, because it is not restricted by
    time considerations; meaning events going forward for generations of time, are
    known and can be spoken of, as if occurring within the present generation, of living
    prophets, seers, and revelators; such as Joseph of Egypt speaking in future times,
    of the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, by his descendants Joseph, father and
    son, or Joseph Smith, Sr. and Joseph Smith, Jr.; which only the faithful comprehend.
    This same power of belief, founded upon a perfect faith in Jesus Christ, grants a JST
    Genesis 50 translation, to be valid, when ancient Joseph prophesied the bondage of
    his father's family in Egypt and their eventual deliverance by Moses, and specifically
    names him and his brother, Aaron. Moses was to deliver Israel from Egypt, have
    power over the Red Sea, receive commandments from God, and be assisted by
    Aaron as his spokesman. This belief system is grounded in the spirit of prophecy.]

    [P. E. Jablonski, who stressed the fact that the Gnostics liked to represent, Christ
    as the Sun (god). From:
Three Elusive Amulets on JSTOR];
    [
The risen Christ is our SUN - Wijngaards Institute for Catholic Research].
    A Gnostic letter of around 200 AD states that resurrection is real for us Christians,
    because we 'possess' resurrection. "Resurrection of the spirit", it says, "swallows
    resurrection of the psyche and resurrection of the flesh". It then describes resurrection
    of the spirit as "being drawn upward by God as rays are drawn by the sun". [Research
    Note: A partial "resurrection" is described in the Book of Mormon, in the distinct case
    of Three Nephites. In the Book of Mormon, the Three Nephites (also known as the
   
Three Nephite Disciples) are three Nephite disciples of Jesus who were blessed by
    Jesus to remain alive on the earth, engaged in the ministry and in their apostolic
    callings until his Second Coming. As described in Third Nephi chapter 28, this change
    occurred when they were caught up into heaven. Similar to Mormon beliefs about
    John:
the Apostle. Three Nephites were granted immortality in order to carry out their
    ministering work on the earth . . . they can show themselves unto whatsoever person
    or people they choose. Wikipedia falsely denigrates these facts as "Mormon folklore".]

  Genealogical Tables: Tab. II., or Table Two (2), mention is made of Antediluvian
  Patriarchs, according to Profane History. It should be clearly noted from a Biblical
  perspective, that after the Tower of Babel, naming patterns were distorted globally,
  when the Language of Adam was lost, in its purity, except in peculiar cases; such
  as the
Jaredites, the greatest nation upon the earth; until destroyed by internal, open
  civil warfare, waged across the
length and breadth of the North American Continent.
  Table III. shows Chaldean Kings before the Flood, from
Berosus. Table IV. mentions
  The Egyptians have also a Series of Kings, who, as they pretend, reigned before
  the Flood; and their Account begins the same Year with that of
Berossus. The naming
  of the Gods, and Demigods, who are supposed to have reigned in Egypt, clearly do
  show the transliteration of God the Father, or Ahman, and Jesus Christ, also known
  as Son Ahman, into Hephsestion /
Hephaestus, or Vulcan; as well as Helios, or the Sun.
  Ancient Patriarchs and their Priesthood powers were transmogrified into planetary
  designations; originally revealed by the words of Abraham, via Urim and Thummim.]

The Plates within the Plates: Ether [Research Note: What was the faith of the Brother
  of Jared; also know as Mahonri Moriancumer? Answer: "And when the Lord had said
  these words, he showed unto the brother of Jared all the inhabitants of the earth which
  had been, and also all that would be; and he withheld them not from his sight, even
  unto the ends of the earth. For he had said unto him in times before, that if he would
  believe in him that he could show unto him all things--it should be shown unto him;
  therefore the Lord could not withhold anything from him, for he knew that the Lord
  could show him all things
." . . . "They shall not go forth unto the Gentiles until the day
  that they shall repent of their iniquity, and become clean before the Lord. And in that
  day that they shall exercise faith in me, saith the Lord, even as the brother of Jared did,
  (also known as Mahonri Moriancumer), that they may become sanctified in me, then will
  I manifest unto them the things which the brother of Jared (Mahonri Moriancumer) saw,
  even to the unfolding unto them all my revelations, saith Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
  the Father of the heavens and of the earth, and all things that in them are."]

Ussher Chronology by James Ussher; James Ussher - Internet Archive: Digital Library


A Master Number beginning with three digits is given to the direct line
descending stem.  All other descending lineages are ordered according to
where they connect into the direct line of descent as sons or daughters.
They have a dash (-) to show the connection.  The Numbers are arranged
by time of birth in the family, where possible, with the direct descendant
being placed where he or she belongs by order of birth.  In cases of long
and questionable pedigrees, the lineage is shown descending down, but
with no numbering system attached.  Added commentary is author's opinion.

001:  
GOD The ETERNAL FATHER: AHMAN (ELOHEIM - ELOHIM)

Family of God, the Eternal Father (Ahman): The Delightful Man; or,
God the Father; or, from the Egyptian alphabet, in the first degree:
ah = the first being who exercises Supreme power is the Delightful Man.
He is the Great I Am who acts
Only upon the Principles of Righteousness.

Marriages:  God, by definition, is a couple, or husband and wife (wives)
                    combination.  When the Father said He created Man; male
                    and female created He them, in His own image, it means:
                    My immortal wife and I created our children in the image
                    of ourselves.  Each and every person born on this earth has
                    a spirit body of contained intelligence: a spirit child of God.
                    Ahman, a glorified, immortal Man, in the Meridian of Time,
                    physically associated with the mortal Mary, who was over-
                    come by the Holy Ghost, becoming the literal physical and
                    spiritual Father of Jesus Christ, His Only Begotten Son.
                   
The Eternal Father was married or priesthood sealed to
                    the
exceedingly fair and white virgin Mary, mortal mother
                    of Jesus Christ, prior to her conception; "
for that which
                    is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost"
Luke 1: 26-55
                    records the formal e
ternal betrothal, which was part of
                    ancient Mosaic legal and lawful wedding ceremony,
as
                    announced by the angel
Gabriel, who was formerly known
                    as Noah in mortality, recorded in the biblical Old Testament.
                    The angel Gabriel, or Noah, was
the family head over Mary,
                    holding the keys of
all living upon the face of the earth, the
                    highest
patriarchal priesthood religious authority after Adam.
                    "
Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed
                    art thou among women."  "The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee,
                    and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also
                    that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son
                    of God."  Consent by Mary to the terms of the contract: "Behold
                    the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word
",
                    sealed
the husband and wife relationship.  Joseph, a noted literal
                    descendant of King David, by the request of God, took intelligent
                    Mary to wife, becoming the mortal protective stepfather of Jesus Christ.

The Children of 001: God, the Eternal Father
001-001:   DIRECT DESCENDANT 002: (The Only Begotten Son)
                 
SON AHMAN - JESUS CHRIST - The Old Testament God: JEHOVAH
                  Jesus Christ was the eldest born spirit child of
GOD: The Eternal FATHER,
                  in the spirit Kingdom or
pre-existence residence of the family of Man.
                  Jesus Christ is the
Elder Brother of all mankind that will live on this earth.
001-002:   Billions of spirit children of Heavenly Father who refused to follow
                  Jesus Christ in the spirit Kingdom.  These non embodied spirits followed
                  Lucifer, or Satan, in the
pre-existence and are numbered as one-third
                  of the the spirit children designated by Ahman to inhabit this earth.
001-003:   Billions of spirit children of Heavenly Father who have been born,
                  are now living, or will ever be born upon this earth.  Sufficiently true
                  and faithful to God in the
pre-existence Kingdom, these spirits obtained
                  the right of receiving mortal bodies, in an earthly probationary state.
                  [Research Note:
20 Surprising Things We Know About Angels - LDS Living.
                  This article notes that Angels are the offspring of God, with some angels
                  being Gods in fact; and that Adam, or Michael, the Archangel, obtained
                  the First Presidency. Joseph Smith, Jr. also obtained the First Presidency
                  in the
pre-existence Kingdom, and was ordained there to the priesthood
                  office of presiding First President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-
                  day Saints, for the last dispensation of the fullness of times. The Holy Ghost
                  is a ministering spirit with superhuman capabilities, who also has obtained
                  the First Presidency, in the
pre-existence Kingdom. Within the eternal decrees
                  of the laws of the Universe, it has been mandated, that "there are no angels
                  who minister to this earth but those who do belong or have belonged to it".
                  Therefore, it is self evident, that the Holy Ghost will be born upon this earth,
                  in its future terrestrial state, as the literal seed of His Majesty Jesus Christ. He,
                  King of Kings and Lord of Lords: The Messiah; raising up His son King David;
                  as the Holy Ghost will reign as servant Prince in the Royal House of Jehovah.
                  For the children of Israel shall return, and seek the LORD their God, and David
                  their King; and shall fear the LORD and His goodness in latter (Millennial) days.
                  The Holy Ghost cannot be born on this earth until
Satan is completely bound.
                 
Hosea 3:5 KJV: Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD
                  their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness
                  in the latter days.
]
001-004:   An innumerable,
incalculable, countless, immeasurable by man,
                  forever infinitely increasing
number of spirit children of Heavenly Father,
                  residing on
millions of
earths like this, (or, on earths glorified to a celestial,
                 
terrestrial or telestial post mortal state); or in the spirit world residence of
                  Heavenly Father, awaiting their time to come to future probationary earths.
                  [
Celestial Kingdom - Terrestrial Kingdom - Telestial Kingdom]
                 
Moses 1: 37-39  And the Lord God spake unto Moses, saying: The heavens,
                 they are many, and they cannot be numbered unto man; but they are numbered
                 unto me, for they are mine.  And as one earth shall pass away, and the heavens
                 thereof even so shall another come; and there is no end to my works, neither
                 to my words.  For behold, this is my work and my glory--to bring to pass
                 the immortality and eternal life of man.

001-005:   Spirit children of Heavenly Father, who
willfully deny the Holy Ghost testimony
                  of Jesus Christ: The Only Begotten Son of God; putting Him to an
open shame.

The place where God resides is a great
Urim and Thummim, a sea of glass and fire.
To the Prophet
Joseph Smith, Jr. the Lord revealed, "And there are many kingdoms;
for there is no space in the which there is no kingdom. . . . And unto every kingdom
is given a law." (
D&C 88: 37-38)  The Prophet Abraham wrote, "And I, Abraham,
had the Urim and Thummim, which the Lord my God had given me. . . ."

"And I saw the stars, that they were very great, and that one of them was nearest
unto the throne of God; . . ."

"And the name of the great one is
Kolob, because it is near unto me … ; I have set
this one to govern all those which belong to the same order as that upon which thou
standest." (
Abraham 3: 1-3)
"Kolob in the first degree. It signifies the first great grand governing
fixed star which is the fartherest that ever has been discovered by the fathers
which was discovered by Methusela and also by Abraham." Therefore, Methuselah
is the earliest identified ancient Patriarch that possessed the Urim and Thummim.

What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
[Research Note:
RootsTech • FamilySearch was presented 29 Feb 2024 - 02 Mar 2024; it
did "provide meaningful connections through a deeper understanding of family history
and genealogy." Class Schedule Preview shows 27 DNA results. A Search of RootsTech
On-Demand Library reveals an added 289 results.
The Science of Molecular Genealogy
suggests: "Molecular science can help genealogists uncover previously unknown family
relationships, verify or refute claims to ancestry, and shed light on questions that have
puzzled family historians for years." There are however, scientific limitations involved,
when considering Latter-day Saint, or Christian belief systems, based upon Bible text;
showing The Internal Consistency and Historical Reliability of the Biblical Genealogies.
Scott Ray Woodward (biologist)] extracted and typed DNA going back millions of years.
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His
EASTER resurrection, validated by LDS (D&C 138),
suggest serious reconsiderations on the actual value of DNA studies, extrapolated back
in temporal time. Foremost of all, What are resurrected bodies like?, declares they are
physical; and thus, no physical bodies upon the earth for molecular science to evaluate.
Moroni, who lived in the fifth century AD, additionally is a physically resurrected being.
So what is left of the ancient molecular past, to scientifically evaluate, are remains from
wicked societies, and social environments, destined for a future Telestial or Terrestrial
eternal existence. All these societies, except for Noah and his family relationships, had
disruptive global flood experiences, degrading and altering their molecular body purity
(as well as a stated corruption of all flesh, intermingled between animals and humans).
Additionally, all spirit is matter, but it is more refined and pure, such that it is infinitely
incapable of being measured by modern technological instruments; nor by DNA data.
God of course knows all of His spirit children, and knows from the beginnings of their
spiritual birth in heaven; thus He knows the past, present and future of the Universe,
knowing beforehand, the beginnings and ends of all the works of His own Creations.

In conclusion then, What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
The Book of Mormon is the greatest primary witness on the face of the earth to validate
the authenticity of the Ancient Biblical Record, with Moroni as the greatest key witness.
The Prophet Moroni testifies emphatically that the Theory of Evolution is so completely
false, as noted in Line upon Line: Moroni 10:3–5. Behold, I would exhort you, that when
ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would
remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation
of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your
hearts. . . . And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. . . .
The key element of this witness testimony concerning the real mortal existence of Adam,
and the factual evidence of the creation of the earth, and all the subsequent related things
thereto, is clearly stated within The Book of Ether. Moroni specifically abridged the record
of the Jaredites. Therefore, from a professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
he is an intimate, personally involved, eye-witness to this account of those twenty and four
plates which were found by the people of Limhi, which is called the Book of Ether. Moroni
mentions: "And as I suppose that the first part of this record, which speaks concerning the
creation of the world, and also of Adam, and an account from that time even to the great
tower, and whatsoever things transpired among the children of men until that time, is had
among the Jews-- Therefore I do not write those things which transpired from the days of
Adam until that time; but they are had upon the plates; and whoso findeth them, the same
will have power that he may get the full account" (as they are written in Adamic language).
Additionally
Legal Records, the Brass Plates, held in the originating possession of Laban,
contained not only the Jewish scriptures, but also Lehi's own genealogy back to Joseph
in Egypt. From a dispassionate, professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
this directly relates to the genealogical Truths taught in 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi, Moroni had
access to the Brass Plates of Laban and knew that those records came forth out of the City
of Jerusalem; and were handed down intact by the seed of originating Nephite father Lehi.
Nevertheless, the very false theory, or secular doctrine of Evolution is currently, and very
openly, and proudly; blatantly expounded upon, by open-minded "scientific" leadership,
from the sacred halls of learning, at
Brigham Young University. Yet, Nephi, son of Lehi,
had a vision of great significance, recorded in
1 Nephi 13:20–42: Plain and Precious Truths.
In particular, from a genealogical research standpoint, 1 Nephi 13: 23, the Gentiles, or us,
today, had a book, which an angel from the Throne of God in Heaven declared, stating:
Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew (collectively, the ancestry of the Jews).
"The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants
of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel (from Old Testament times);
and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record
like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many;
nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house
of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles."
Organic Evolution is false.

Both the Father Ahman and the Son, or Son Ahman, have the same Names.

Kolob was after the manner of the Lord, according to its times and seasons
in the revolutions thereof; that one revolution was a day unto the Lord, after
his manner of reckoning, it being one thousand years according to the time
appointed unto that whereon thou standest (Earth).  This is the reckoning
of the Lord’s time, according to the reckoning of Kolob.  The chronology of
this earth is related to the chronology of Kolob, the name of a celestial
planet next to the residence of God. 
D&C 88: 36-45  And there are many
kingdoms; for there is no space in the which there is no kingdom; and
there is no kingdom in which there is no space, either a greater or a lesser
kingdom. . . . And again, verily I say unto you, he hath given a law unto
all things, by which they move in their times and their seasons; And their
courses are fixed, even the courses of the heavens and the earth, which
comprehend the earth and all the planets.  And they give light to each
other in their times and in their seasons, in their minutes, in their hours,
in their days, in their weeks, in their months, in their years . . . The earth
rolls upon her wings, and the sun giveth his light by day, and the moon
giveth her light by night, and the stars also give their light, as they roll
upon their wings in their glory, in the midst of the power of God.

Jah-oh-eh is the earth under the governing power of Oliblish, Enish-go-
on-dosh, and Ka[i/e/ii]-e-van-rash, which are the grand Key or in other
words, the
governing power, which governs the fifteen fixed stars . . .
Oliblish, Enish-go-on-dosh, and Kaii-ven-rash, are the three grand
central powers [similar to the
First Presidency] that govern all of the
other creations, which have been sought out by the most aged of all
the fathers, since the beginning of the creation, by means of the Urim
and Thummim.  The names of the other twelve fixed stars [similar to
the
Quorum of the Twelve Apostles] are: Kolob (which is swifter in
its motion than the rest of the twelve fixed stars, being first in motion
and delegated to have power over others [similar to the President of
the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles] in regulation of their time, [through
the medium of Kli-flos-is-es and Hah-ko-kau-beam {similar in order
to the
Assistant to the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles}]), Limdi (the fifth
fixed star in its motion), Zip, Vu[v/s]el, Venist[i/j], Waine, Wa[g/y]oh-

The King Follett Discourse
     President
Joseph Smith, Jr. delivered a discourse before about twenty thousand
     Saints at the April conference of the Church, 1844, at the funeral sermon of Elder
     King Follett.  He said: "God himself was once as we are now, and is an exalted man,
     and sits enthroned in yonder heavens!  That is the great secret.  If the veil were rent
     today, and the great God who holds this world in its orbit, and who upholds all worlds
     and all things by his power, was to make himself visible,—I say, if you were to see him
     today, you would see him like a man in form—like yourselves in all the person, image,
     and very form as a man; for Adam was created in the very fashion, image and likeness
     of God, and received instruction from, and walked, talked and conversed with him,
     as one man talks and communes with another. . . . It is the first principle of the Gospel
     to know for a certainty the Character of God, and to know that we may converse with
     him as one man converses with another, and that he was once a man like us; yea, that
     God himself, the Father of us all, dwelt on an earth, the same as Jesus Christ himself
     did; and I will show it from the Bible." [Research Note: Of all of the statements made
     by the Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., the first principle of the Gospel is the most important.

     is significant in itself, as declaring themselves, indicates all three testified at this time,
     together
), as possessing the keys of the kingdom, and of the dispensation of the fulness
     of times! As further clarified, "The
Priesthood is an everlasting principle, and existed
     with God from eternity, and will to eternity, without beginning of days or end of years."

     It is further stated that "The Priesthood is everlasting----without beginning of days or
     or end of years; without father, mother, etc." In other words, the Priesthood does not
     have a biological component, and is not hereditary; and cannot therefore be subject
     to any evolutionary process, as it is a self existent Principle of all the Universal matter.
     Keys of the Priesthood have always existed from Eternity to Eternity; they are called
     the Keys of the Universe; all attributes of the Priesthood have existed for all eternity.
     The Keys of the Universe are the powers to act in the capacity and authority as God.
     The Holy Scriptures are replete with examples of Jesus Christ speaking, as if He is
     God the Eternal Father; which right He has as the Only Begotten and Beloved Son.
    
“The First Principles of Man Are Self-Existent with God” | Religious Studies Center; it
     indicates the eternal truth that there has always been organized Intelligence, as part
     of our Universe. That being said, the concept of Big Bang physical theory is invalid,
     as there is no known, or knowable evolution of the observable Universe in existence.
     Intelligence, or the light of truth, was not created or made, neither indeed can be,
     additionally suggests that intelligence, or the light of truth cannot be unorganized.
     The Power undergirding all Organized Intelligence is Thought; and thoughts, or
     the power of mental exertion, or "faith", the power to believe, also cannot be lost,
     or destroyed, or annihilated. Thus the Glory of God is stated to be Light and Truth.
     Or, in other words, God the Eternal Father "speaks", or voices his opinions, that
     proceed forth out of his physical mouth into the immensity of the whole Universe,
     through the Light of Christ; which motivates actions, as performed by self existent
     elements, each responding according to the harmonies, within their own beings.
     This provides free agencies of actions. Big Bang theory suggests otherwise, or of
     portions of the Universe, manifested in religious philosophy as
Black hole "hell";
     a cosmic body of extremely intense gravity from which nothing, not even any light,
     can escape; which does contradict falsely the Universal control of God the Father.
     The
Atonement of Jesus Christ, in overcoming the extremely intense gravity forces
     acting upon Him, when Satan tried to enter His physical body, ended the death cycle.]

Nov 23 October 2023 [General Conference]
Nov 23 The Sealing Power -  The sealing power makes individual salvation and family
exaltation universally available to the children of God. [Research Note: This elucidated
sealing power is inseparably connected with the
Church of the Firstborn. Celestial Saints
of God dwell in the Father's presence, become like Him, and receive all things from Him;
have part in the First Resurrection and will reign with Christ in the millennium; similar to
the Saints who were residents of Zion in the days of our great patriarchal father
Enoch.
See: The Joseph Smith Papers: "firstborn" Search:
Doctrine and Covenants 93; et cetera.
Jesus Christ presides over all the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God; thus,
faithful Saints will receive through Jesus Christ, the
rights of inheritance of the Firstborn,
with
Adam and Eve, and all their sealed posterity, within the Celestial Patriarchal Order.
Noah, who is Angel Gabriel, is next to Adam in priesthood, or the Patriarchal Priesthood,
as he was the father of all living is his day, and to him was given the dominion. And thus,
for Adam to retain his standing as head of the human family, under the Lord Jesus Christ,
various keys of the Priesthood held in this grand conference, in all dispensations of time,
by all successive church officer leaderships will be returned to Adam, through said Noah,
at Adam-ondi-Ahman. T
he Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr. actually saw men, before they had
ascended from the tomb, as though they were getting up slowly. They took each other
by the hand and said to each other, "My father, my son, my mother, my daughter,
my brother, my sister." This would require a Priesthood prerequisite of Patriarchal
Order, reestablished upon the earth, as in the days of Noah, down to all offices of
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; before ushering in the Millennium;
and in The Parable of the Ten Virgins, gathering faithful, wise, prepared virgins.
Glossary Topic: Adam-ondi-Ahman - History - Importance -
Location - Meeting - Savior.
It is very obvious, upon introspection, that the original spelling of A-w-m-e-n, with an "e",
being changed to Awman, and then later to Ahman; it implies definitional feeling sense
of Awe-man, or The Delightful Man; as Ah, by definition and meaning expresses delight.
In other words awe, to the righteous: His Glorious Countenance gives a Fullness of Joy;
as Joseph Smith, Jr. experienced a
fullness of Joy when he saw both Father and Son:
"My soul was filled with love and for many days I could rejoice with great joy and the Lord
was with me" (1832). Ergo, Joseph had the Holy Ghost as his constant aid and companion.
Alexander Neibaur, Journal, 24 May 1844, extract, Page 23, notes Joseph Smith, Jr. "saw
a fire towards heaven came near & nearer | saw a personage in the fire light complexion |
blue eyes a piece of white cloth drawn over | his shoulders his right arm bear after a wile |
a other person came to the side of the first |"
Liahona, October 1993, House of Revelation,
in subsection: Visions of the Father and the Son, in the Newel K. Whitney and Co. store, in
Kirtland, O., notes a sacred experience by Zebedee Coltrin: "a personage walked through
the room from east to west, and Joseph asked if we saw him. I saw him and suppose the
others did & Joseph answered that is Jesus, the Son of God, our elder brother. Afterward
Joseph told us to resume our former position in prayer (kneeling, with our hands uplifted)
which we did. Another person came through; he was surrounded as with a flame of fire .
. . The Prophet Joseph said this was the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. I saw Him" Also,
John Murdock stated: "I saw the form of a man, most lovely, the visage of his face was
sound and fair as the sun. His hair a bright silver grey, curled in most majestic form.
His eyes a keen penetrating blue, and the skin of his neck a most beautiful white
and he was covered from the neck to the feet with a loose garment, pure white,
whiter than any garment I have ever before seen. His countenance was most
penetrating, and yet most lovely. And while I was endeavoring to comprehend
the whole personage from head to feet it slipped from me, and the vision was
closed up. But it left on my mind the impression of love, for months, that I never
felt before to that degree" (John Murdock Journal, typescript,
BYU archives, page 13.}
The firsthand Nephite witnesses of Christ had similar profound experiences of great joy
and rejoicing; and it seems self evident, after Joseph Smith, Jr., received a complete
forgiveness of all of his sins, that part of the many other things that Jesus Christ did say
to Joseph Smith, Jr., during his First Vision, was the Savior's invitation to Joseph, to feel
the wounds in the body of the Messiah; and being embraced fully by His personal Love.

002:   JESUS CHRIST: SON AHMAN (the Only Begotten Son of
GOD: The Eternal FATHER)

Family of Jesus Christ (Son Ahman):
Jesus / Jesus Christ (Archive Search) / Jesus Christ
Jehovah (Archive Search) / Jehovah |

Marriage: 
John 20: 17-18  Jesus Christ asked Mary Magdalene to refrain
herself from attempting to touch or hold (chibuk) Him, at that time.   Jesus
had not yet ascended unto the Father.  Negiah, meaning "contact" or
"connection" or "touch" in Hebrew, is a notion in Jewish law (Halakha)
that restricts (or forbids) physical contact with, or touching of, a member
of the opposite sex, except for one's spouse, and immediate family.   Also,
when Mary Magdalene was asked by Jesus to speak to the brethren:
"I
ascend unto my Father . . . ",
women needed a husband's authorized
permission, to leave home, or to
legally testify in family related matters.
Indeed, the Law of the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God,
that was ordained by the Messiah, (even Jesus Christ, or the said Jehovah,
the Son Ahman, the Great I AM of the Old Testament), and His Father Ahman,
before the world was created and formed in a temporal state of physical reality;
was that in total humility,
"Meek and Lowly", Jesus Christ would come to this earth
and be born as is all humanity, a little child of God; growing up into a Man of God.
He received all things, whatsoever he received, by revelation and commandment,
by the Word of His Father Ahman, according to the Priesthood Oath and Covenant.
Jesus Christ has a resurrected Celestial body, and has entered into His exaltation,
and sits upon His Throne, as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, on the Right Hand
of His Father Ahman. Jesus Christ also received promises concerning His seed,
while upon this mortal earth, concerning His seed, and of the fruit of His loins;
which were to continue so long as they were in the world; and as touching Jesus
and His seed, out of the world they should continue; both in the world and out of
the world should they continue as innumerable as the stars; or, if one were to count
the sand upon the seashore, one could not number them. This promise Jesus Christ
received, and by this law is the continuation of the works of the Father of the Messiah
continued, wherein He glorifieth Himself, as well as is the Son of God also glorified.
Jesus Christ had conferred upon Him all the keys and powers of the Holy Priesthood.
He has His exaltation and Throne in the Highest Kingdom of His Father, as Son of God.
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain. He has an exceedingly great, eternal weight of glory.
This is
Eternal Lives & Life: to know the only wise and true God and His Son Jesus Christ.

D&C 132: 38  David also received many wives and concubines, and also Solomon
and Moses my servants, as also many others of my servants, from the
beginning
of
Creation
until this time; and in nothing did they sin save in those things which they
received not of me. [Research Note: This reference from God specifically implies that
Adam, who was at the beginning of Creation, received many wives and concubines,
which would have been given to Adam, by Eve; from some of their female posterity.
This would be consistent with Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ; she also being a spirit
daughter of God, the Eternal Father;
betrothed to God Ahman, by Angel Gabriel (Noah).
This would have directly involved the full consent of
Heavenly Mother; as the only means
provided, whereby she could obtain a future return to an eternal association with all of her
righteous and glorified mortal children. Prophets have taught that our immortal, celestial,
heavenly parents work together in a united manner, for the total comprehensive salvation
of the human family; brought to fulfillment through the blood Atonement of Jesus Christ.]

[Research Note:
Plural Marriage "was believed in and practiced by the ancients"; noted
Brigham Young: Beneficial Effects of Polygamy (Journal of Discourses). As LDS President,
Brigham Young also stated "that if you desire with all your hearts to obtain the blessings
which Abraham obtained, you will be polygamists at least in your faith, or you will come
short of enjoying the salvation and the glory which Abraham has obtained. This is as true
as that God lives. . . . The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those
who enter into polygamy. Others attain unto a glory and may even be permitted to come
into the presence of the Father and the Son (in the Celestial Earth Kingdom; single, or in
a monogamously Temple sealed marriage), but they cannot (fully) reign as kings in glory,
because they had blessings offered unto them (to have power to save their own posterity),
and they refused to accept them."
The Power to Seal on Earth and in Heaven remained
actively upon the earth until the days of Elijah the Prophet, one of
Messengers with Keys.
Therefore, according to President Brigham Young, Jesus Christ had to have been married
to more than one wife, before he was exalted. Thus, the New Testament does not contain
a complete record of the Saints family relationships. Furthermore, Biblical society clearly
included plural marriage, as it was "believed in and practiced by the ancients",
(as three
years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared,
Enoch, and Methuselah; all just high priests, having the Holy Priesthood, after the Order
of the Son of God, with the residue of his, Adam's righteous posterity, into the green valley
of
Adam-ondi-Ahman); which society continued on through Shem, or Melchizedek, the son
of Noah; to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or Israel; down into the later Christian Gentile era.
This certainly indicates a tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records, when actually
compared mathematically, with the high number of global inhabitants, in pre-flood times.
Section 138, Vision of the Redemption of the Dead (Doctrine and Covenants 138): "Among
the great and mighty ones who were assembled in this vast congregation of the righteous
were Father Adam, the Ancient of Days and father of all, And our glorious Mother Eve,
with many of her faithful daughters who had lived through the (past Old Testament) ages
and worshiped the true and living God." Adam, or Michael, as the Holy Patriarchal Head
of the Human Family, by Right, has been delegated to hold the keys of the resurrection
of the dead, from Jesus Christ, or Jehovah; having previously passed through that order,
and continuously assists in bringing to pass the crowning of his posterity with immortality,
and eternal lives, under the direction of Son Ahman, the Messiah, Lord of Lords, and King
of Kings. President Joseph F. Smith validates tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records,: "I saw the hosts of the dead, both small and great." -- "And there were gathered
together in one place an innumerable company of the spirits of the just who had been
faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality;" "They were assembled
awaiting the advent of the Son of God into the spirit world, to declare their redemption
from the bands of death." (Thus, this would have been an innumerable company of spirits
having lived in Old Testament times, as "Their sleeping dust was to be restored unto its
perfect frame . . .") "While this vast multitude waited and conversed, rejoicing in the hour
of their deliverance from the chains of death, the Son of God appeared, declaring liberty
to the captives who had been faithful," Also, this multitude did not include all the wicked.
Specific mention is made of seeing and critically identifying additional Old Testament
personalities: Abel, the first martyr; Seth, one of the mighty ones; Noah, of the flood era;
Shem, the great high priest (Melchizedek); Abraham, the father of the faithful; Isaac,
Jacob; Moses, the great law-giver of Israel; Isaiah, who spoke of the Messiah;
Ezekiel;
Daniel; Elias, who appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration; and the prophet Malachi;
"All these and many more, even the prophets who dwelt among the Nephites and testified
of the coming of the Son of God, mingled in the vast assembly"; waiting for deliverance.
Furthermore, Jesus Christ mentions in
Matthew 7: 19–23, when asked why Moses permitted
divorce; Jesus Christ declared: "Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered
you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."
Isaiah 3 & 4 notes Zion and her daughters will be redeemed and cleansed in the coming
millennial day, by the restoration of polygamy: "And in that day, seven women shall
take hold of one man, saying: We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel;
only let us be called by thy name to take away our reproach"; re: 2 Nephi Chapter 14, as
mentioned in the Book of Mormon;
indicating modern day Zion is yet filthy, beforehand.
Since there was no divorce in the beginning, under the ancient patriarchal priesthood,
the unity of family associations would have greatly expanded the number of the children
living upon the earth, down to the time of the period of the administration of prophet Elijah.
Therefore, it is priesthood unrighteous dominion, in the cancellation of Temple Sealings,
or civil divorces, and not genetic DNA, that promotes extreme mental cruelty within lives
of separated posterity; that is the origination of adultery, fornication; all perverted forms
of biological disorientation of the children; a diminished

John 8 mentions concerning Jesus Christ: "And early in the morning
he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down,
and taught them. And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken
in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him, Master,
this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act." The
Sotah (Talmud) historical reality
of this encounter is testified to within the Sotah, Tractate, as "The Mishnaic Tractate
Soah deals with the trial by ordeal undergone in the Temple by a sotah, a woman
whose husband suspected her of adultery. In particular, the Mishnaic ritual is closer
to the punishment of an adulteress . . . the laws of evidence transform the sotah . . .
to one against whom there is solid evidence of immoral behavior." There is unbinding
of the woman's hair, rending of the woman's garments (currently, LDS temple garments,
or requirements forbidding their use or wearing in the future), and inviting public witness;
or, subject her to buffetings of Satan; a repulsive open abuse; destruction in naked flesh.]

The Priesthood was first given to Adam. He obtained the First Presidency and held
the Keys of it. He obtained it in the creation before the world was formed, and they
remained on the earth until the Old Testament times of Elijah the Prophet; the last
of those prophets to hold the Keys of the Sealing Power of the Melchizedek Priesthood.
All the ancient prophets of the Old Testament times had the Melchizedek Priesthood.
The Order of the Melchizedek Priesthood was formerly called the High Priesthood of
the Holy Order of God, or the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God. It is
the Church of the Firstborn, or glorified Patriarchal Priesthood celestial heir members.
The sealed family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children.
Old Testament Biblical Records include statements concerning High Priests presiding
in, or holding
Priesthood Keys in the Melchizedek Priesthood, as well as Bishops, who
hold the mighty sacred keys over
The Aaronic Priesthood: The Ministering of Angels.
Priesthood of Aaron restoration was performed by John the Baptist. The
testimony of
Jesus Christ was: This is he, of whom it is written, behold, I send my messenger before
thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those
that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he
that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. And all the people that heard
him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of dear John.
Thus, we
carefully listen to Andrea Bocelli - Angels We Have Heard On High - YouTube™.
Also: Listen to the Voice of Jesus Christ, your Lord, your God, and your Redeemer, whose
word is quick and powerful. And also John the son of Zacharias, which Zacharias he (Elias,
to whom I have committed the keys of bringing to pass the restoration of all things spoken
by the mouth of all the holy prophets since the world began, concerning the last days),
visited and gave promise that he should have a son, and his name should be John,
and he should be filled with the spirit of Elias; Which John I have have sent unto you,
my servants, Joseph Smith, Jun., and Oliver Cowdery, to ordain you unto the first priest-
hood, which you have received, that you might be called and ordained even as Aaron.

What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?

The Science of Molecular Genealogy
suggests: "Molecular science can help genealogists uncover previously unknown family
relationships, verify or refute claims to ancestry, and shed light on questions that have
puzzled family historians for years." There are however, scientific limitations involved,
when considering Latter-day Saint, or Christian belief systems, based upon Bible text;
showing The Internal Consistency and Historical Reliability of the Biblical Genealogies.
Scott Ray Woodward (biologist)] extracted and typed DNA going back millions of years.
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His
EASTER resurrection, validated by LDS (D&C 138),
suggest serious reconsiderations on the actual value of DNA studies, extrapolated back
in temporal time. Foremost of all, What are resurrected bodies like?, declares they are
physical; and thus, no physical bodies upon the earth for molecular science to evaluate.
Moroni, who lived in the fifth century AD, additionally is a physically resurrected being.
So what is left of the ancient molecular past, to scientifically evaluate, are remains from
wicked societies, and social environments, destined for a future Telestial or Terrestrial
eternal existence. All these societies, except for Noah and his family relationships, had
disruptive global flood experiences, degrading and altering their molecular body purity
(as well as a stated corruption of all flesh, intermingled between animals and humans).
Additionally, all spirit is matter, but it is more refined and pure, such that it is infinitely
incapable of being measured by modern technological instruments; nor by DNA data.
God of course knows all of His spirit children, and knows from the beginnings of their
spiritual birth in heaven; thus He knows the past, present and future of the Universe,
knowing beforehand, the beginnings and ends of all the works of His own Creations.

In conclusion then, What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
The Book of Mormon is the greatest primary witness on the face of the earth to validate
the authenticity of the Ancient Biblical Record, with Moroni as the greatest key witness.
The Prophet Moroni testifies emphatically that the Theory of Evolution is so completely
false, as noted in Line upon Line: Moroni 10:3–5. Behold, I would exhort you, that when
ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would
remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation
of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your
hearts. . . . And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. . . .
The key element of this witness testimony concerning the real mortal existence of Adam,
and the factual evidence of the creation of the earth, and all the subsequent related things
thereto, is clearly stated within The Book of Ether. Moroni specifically abridged the record
of the Jaredites. Therefore, from a professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
he is an intimate, personally involved, eye-witness to this account of those twenty and four
plates which were found by the people of Limhi, which is called the Book of Ether. Moroni
mentions: "And as I suppose that the first part of this record, which speaks concerning the
creation of the world, and also of Adam, and an account from that time even to the great
tower, and whatsoever things transpired among the children of men until that time, is had
among the Jews-- Therefore I do not write those things which transpired from the days of
Adam until that time; but they are had upon the plates; and whoso findeth them, the same
will have power that he may get the full account" (as they are written in Adamic language).
Additionally
Legal Records, the Brass Plates, held in the originating possession of Laban,
contained not only the Jewish scriptures, but also Lehi's own genealogy back to Joseph
in Egypt. From a dispassionate, professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
this directly relates to the genealogical Truths taught in 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi, Moroni had
access to the Brass Plates of Laban and knew that those records came forth out of the City
of Jerusalem; and were handed down intact by the seed of originating Nephite father Lehi.
Nevertheless, the very false theory, or secular doctrine of Evolution is currently, and very
openly, and proudly; blatantly expounded upon, by open-minded "scientific" leadership,
from the sacred halls of learning, at
Brigham Young University. Yet, Nephi, son of Lehi,
had a vision of great significance, recorded in
1 Nephi 13:20–42: Plain and Precious Truths.
In particular, from a genealogical research standpoint, 1 Nephi 13: 23, the Gentiles, or us,
today, had a book, which an angel from the Throne of God in Heaven declared, stating:
Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew (collectively, the ancestry of the Jews).
"The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants
of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel (from Old Testament times);
and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record
like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many;
nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house
of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles."
Organic Evolution is false.

Bible - John 14: 9
     Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you,
     and yet hast thou not known me, Philip?  He that hath seen me hath seen the Father;
     and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

B. 
Doctrine and Covenants 110: 1-10
     . . .

     "We saw the Lord standing upon the breastwork of the pulpit, before us; and under
     his feet was a paved work of pure gold, in color like amber. His eyes were as a flame
     of fire; the hair of his head was white like the pure snow; his countenance shone above
     the brightness of the sun; and his voice was as the sound of the rushing of great waters,
     even the voice of Jehovah," . . .

C.
World Ancestry - Roots In Antiquity
     . . .
     Jesus Christ was
married, with the intent of biological posterity. The first commandment
     in the Garden of Eden, was to "
Be Fruitful and Multiply". Thus it follows, indisputably,
     that Jesus Christ fulfilled this law, to enter the Highest Degree of the Celestial Kingdom.
    
Behold Your Mother | Tim Challies mentions that [At the time Jesus hung on the cross,
     His siblings did not believe in Him. It stands to reason . . . that He would ask one of His
     followers to care for His mother. He selected John, his closest friend who is consistently
     referred to as "the disciple Jesus loved," to take on this responsibility.] Furthermore,
    
Understanding the Biblical Role of Grandparents suggests some other considerations:
     [Specifically, the grandparent's role is to be a disciple-maker of future generations
     by focusing on salvation and sanctification of their family (
Psalm 78 KJV:-7-8).] Thus,
     Jesus Christ was giving to John, his closest friend, not only the responsibility for His
     mother, whose Jewish husband was no longer available, (due to death, imprisonment,
     or other unspecified, complex issues); but also the upbringing of any possible young
     posterity that were residing within her family, under her jurisdiction. It should be very
     clearly noted that any posterity of Jesus Christ, in this time frame, would be fully subject
     to abject ridicule and mortification, isolation and rejection; they being living posterity
     of a publically dishonored, crucified individual, just displayed on the Cross, in His open
     shame, by both the Jewish nation at large, and even many of His own former followers;
     also most of the Roman military personnel who violated His person, and other regional
     authorities. John would of necessity, been required to keep relatives in total isolation
     and secrecy. Also noted is the fact that Mary Magdalene's testimony was questioned
     by His own disciples; indicating that she was an obvious controversial historical person,
     with her own baggage background, including serious medical and physical disabilities.
     John 6 mentions Judas
Iscariot, genealogically, as the son of Simon. Matthew 8 states
     Jesus Christ had power to heal the leper.
Luke 17 mentions ten lepers that were healed;
     And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice
     glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks; and he was also a
     Samaritan. Judas Iscariot was in Bethany, in the guest house of Simon the leper, where
     Jesus Christ sat at meat. Simon the leper could not have offered this service to the Lord,
     unless he had been healed from his affliction; otherwise he would have been an
outcast.
     Jesus Christ
washed the feet of His apostles, even as Christ had His feet kindly washed.
     The
Alabaster box, with expensive oil of spikenard, used by a woman who was a sinner,
     in that city, would have come into her possession, obviously by her former indiscretions.
     This historical recording attests that Pharisee Simon the leper was an ungrateful person;
     that He did not return back and glorify God, but was most unforgiving, or mean spirited.
     "I, the Lord, will forgive whom I will forgive, but Of You It Is Required to Forgive all men."
     Emotionally, mentally, physiologically, Judas Iscariot was the son of
Simon the Leper.
     The Master's exceedingly offensive and humiliating public chastisement of Simon, in his
     own house, presented apostate
Judas with a friendly "kiss of death" betrayal motivation.

D.  Nov 23 October 2023 [
General Conference]
Nov 23 The Sealing Power -  The sealing power makes individual salvation and family
exaltation universally available to the children of God. [Research Note: This elucidated
sealing power is inseparably connected with the
Church of the Firstborn. Celestial Saints
of God dwell in the Father's presence, become like Him, and receive all things from Him;
have part in the First Resurrection and will reign with Christ in the millennium; similar to
the Saints who were residents of Zion in the days of our great patriarchal father
Enoch.
See: The Joseph Smith Papers: "firstborn" Search:
Doctrine and Covenants 93; et cetera.
Jesus Christ presides over all the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God; thus,
faithful Saints will receive through Jesus Christ, the
rights of inheritance of the Firstborn,
with
Adam and Eve, and all their sealed posterity, within the Celestial Patriarchal Order.
Noah, who is Angel Gabriel, is next to Adam in priesthood, or the Patriarchal Priesthood,
as he was the father of all living is his day, and to him was given the dominion. And thus,
for Adam to retain his standing as head of the human family, under the Lord Jesus Christ,
various keys of the Priesthood held in this grand conference, in all dispensations of time,
by all successive church officer leaderships will be returned to Adam, through said Noah,
at Adam-ondi-Ahman. T
he Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr. actually saw men, before they had
ascended from the tomb, as though they were getting up slowly. They took each other
by the hand and said to each other, "My father, my son, my mother, my daughter,
my brother, my sister." This would require a Priesthood prerequisite of Patriarchal
Order, reestablished upon the earth, as in the days of Noah, down to all offices of
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; before ushering in the Millennium;
and in The Parable of the Ten Virgins, gathering faithful, wise, prepared virgins.

It is very obvious, upon introspection, that the original spelling of A-w-m-e-n, with an "e",
being changed to Awman, and then later to Ahman; it implies definitional feeling sense
of Awe-man, or The Delightful Man; as Ah, by definition and meaning expresses delight.
In other words awe, to the righteous: His Glorious Countenance gives a Fullness of Joy;
as Joseph Smith, Jr. experienced a
fullness of Joy when he saw both Father and Son:
"My soul was filled with love and for many days I could rejoice with great joy and the Lord
was with me" (1832). Ergo, Joseph had the Holy Ghost as his constant aid and companion.
Alexander Neibaur, Journal, 24 May 1844, extract, Page 23, notes Joseph Smith, Jr. "saw
a fire towards heaven came near & nearer | saw a personage in the fire light complexion |
blue eyes a piece of white cloth drawn over | his shoulders his right arm bear after a wile |
a other person came to the side of the first |"
Liahona, October 1993, House of Revelation,
in subsection: Visions of the Father and the Son, in the Newel K. Whitney and Co. store, in
Kirtland, O., notes a sacred experience by Zebedee Coltrin: "a personage walked through
the room from east to west, and Joseph asked if we saw him. I saw him and suppose the
others did & Joseph answered that is Jesus, the Son of God, our elder brother. Afterward
Joseph told us to resume our former position in prayer (kneeling, with our hands uplifted)
which we did. Another person came through; he was surrounded as with a flame of fire .
. . The Prophet Joseph said this was the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. I saw Him" Also,
John Murdock stated: "I saw the form of a man, most lovely, the visage of his face was
sound and fair as the sun. His hair a bright silver grey, curled in most majestic form.
His eyes a keen penetrating blue, and the skin of his neck a most beautiful white
and he was covered from the neck to the feet with a loose garment, pure white,
whiter than any garment I have ever before seen. His countenance was most
penetrating, and yet most lovely. And while I was endeavoring to comprehend
the whole personage from head to feet it slipped from me, and the vision was
closed up. But it left on my mind the impression of love, for months, that I never
felt before to that degree" (John Murdock Journal, typescript,
BYU archives, page 13.}
The firsthand Nephite witnesses of Christ had similar profound experiences of great joy
and rejoicing; and it seems self evident, after Joseph Smith, Jr., received a complete
forgiveness of all of his sins, that part of the many other things that Jesus Christ did say
to Joseph Smith, Jr., during his First Vision, was the Savior's invitation to Joseph, to feel
the wounds in the body of the Messiah; and being embraced fully by His personal Love.

003:   ADAM: A SONS AHMAN (son of JESUS CHRIST by priesthood
ordinance
).
          Adam, being
sealed to Christ as His adopted son, becomes thereby,
          a fully established prophet, priest and king; an eternal god in his own
          right and standing.  He exercises the fullness of the patriarchal priesthood.
          Adam possesses the keys of the Universe and rules over his posterity
          and the planet Earth, throughout all eternity.  [
Adam holds the keys of
          the dispensation of the fullness of times; i.e., the dispensation of all the
          times have been and will be revealed through him from the beginning
          to Christ, and from Christ to the end of the dispensations that are to be
          revealed. 
Chapter 8: The Everlasting Priesthood
]

          Official calling to LDS office of church patriarch, within Hyrum Smith's
          family lineage, who was the brother of Joseph Smith, Jr., created by
          revelation, restoration in Melchizedek priesthood authority of the legal
          independent final word: High Priest Patriarchal Judge.   Equivalent in
          American government, to the Supreme Court of the United States of
          America.  It judicially stands next to the LDS First Presidency, as the
          Supreme Court stands next to the Presidency of the United States of
          America.  The Melchizedek priesthood Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
          and the First Quorum of Seventy, preside in similar manner as the
          American national  legislative bodies, the United States Senate and
          House of Representatives.  Foundations of government were divinely
          established in the
Charters of Freedom of the United States of America.
         
All seers are entitled by right of their calling and office, to have direct
          access to the
Urim and Thummim.  In the case of former Church Patriarch
          Emeritus
, the rightful heir of Hyrum Smith was Eldred G. Smith.  He was
          the last remaining vestige of authority, like a removed appendix from the
          body of Christ, to validate through direct revelation, celestial genealogies.
          Deceased
04 Apr 2013.  For what doth it profit a man if a gift is bestowed
          upon him, and he receive not the gift?  Behold, he rejoices not in that
          which is given unto him, neither rejoices in him who is the giver of the gift.


         
D&C 107: 56-57  And Adam stood up in the midst of the congregation; and,
          notwithstanding he was bowed down with age, being full of the Holy Ghost,
          predicted whatsoever should befall his posterity unto the latest generation.
          These things were all written in the book of Enoch, and are to be testified
          of in due time.  Adam and all of his righteous posterity were required to
          wait until the resurrection of Jesus Christ before receiving their own bodies;
          additionally, "their resurrection cometh to pass before the resurrection of those
          who die after the resurrection of Christ", according to the Book of Mormon
          prophet Alma
Alma 40: 19.

          By the time of the end of the millennium, all of Adam's posterity who accept
          the gospel must be
sealed together as one family by the power of the priesthood,
          which is the power to
seal on earth, and it shall be sealed in heaven, and to bind
          on earth, and it shall be bound in heaven.
          (
Eldred G. Smith)

         
D&C 128: 17-18  It is sufficient to know, in this case, that the earth will be smitten
          with a curse unless there is a welding link of some kind or other between the
          fathers and the children, upon some subject or other—and behold what is that
          subject?  It is the baptism for the dead.  For we without them cannot be made
          perfect; neither can they without us be made perfect.  Neither can they nor we
          be made perfect without those who have died in the gospel also; for it is necessary
          in the ushering in of the dispensation of the fulness of times, which dispensation
          is now beginning to usher in, that a whole and complete and perfect union, and
          welding together of dispensations, and keys, and powers, and glories should take
          place, and be revealed from the days of Adam even to the present time.  And not
          only this, but those things which never have been revealed from the foundation
          of the world, but have been kept hid from the wise and prudent, shall be revealed
          unto babes and sucklings in this, the dispensation of the fulness of times.

          Moses 3: 20  And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air,
          and to every beast of the field.  Adam was taught by God to read and write.
          Adam and Eve were exceedingly intelligent, both before and after the Fall.

          No lesson is more manifest in nature than that all living things do as
          the Lord commanded in the Creation.  They reproduce "after their own kind."
          (See:
Moses 2: 12, 24)  They follow the pattern of their parentage.  Everyone
          knows that; every four-year-old knows that!  A bird will not become an animal
          nor a fish.  A mammal will not beget reptiles, nor "do men gather … figs of thistles."
          (
Matthew 7: 16)

          In the countless billions of opportunities in the reproduction of living things, one
          kind does not beget another.  If a species ever does cross, the offspring cannot
          reproduce.  The pattern for all life is the pattern of the parentage.

          This is demonstrated in so many obvious ways, even an ordinary mind should
          understand it.  Surely no one with reverence for God could believe that His children
          evolved from slime or from reptiles.  (Although one can easily imagine that those
          who accept the theory of evolution don't show much enthusiasm for genealogical
          research!)  The theory of evolution, and it is a theory, will have an entirely different
          dimension when the workings of God in creation are fully revealed.
          (
Boyd K. Packer)

Family of Adam (a Sons Ahman):
(And Adam hearkened unto the voice of God and called upon his sons to repent.
Adam was a preacher of righteousness, and spake and prophesied, and called
upon all men everywhere to repent. And faith was taught unto the children of men.
And then began these men to call upon the name of the Lord, and the Lord blessed
them, and a book of remembrance was kept in the which was recorded in the language
of Adam, for it was given unto as many as called upon God to write by the Spirit of
inspiration, And by them their children were taught to read and write, having a language
which was pure and undefiled. Now this same priesthood which was in the beginning
shall be in the end of the world also. Now this prophecy Adam spake as he was moved
upon by the Holy Ghost. And a genealogy was kept of the children of God. And this was
the book of the generations of Adam . . . JST -
Inspired Version)

Adam (Genesis - Inspired Version) / Adam (Adam) / Adam

Marriage:
"And I, God said unto mine Only Begotten, which was with me from the beginning:
Let us make man [not a separate man, but a complete man, which is husband and wife]
in our image, after our likeness; and it was so." (
Moses 2: 26)  What a beautiful
partnership!  Adam and Eve were married for eternity by the Lord.  Such a marriage
extends beyond the grave.  All peoples should call for this kind of marriage.
(
Spencer W. Kimball)

Adam said: “Blessed be the name of God, for because of my transgression my eyes
are opened, and in this life I shall have joy, and again in the flesh I shall see God”
(
Moses 5: 10). And Eve, his wife, heard all these things and was glad, saying:
Were it not for our transgression we never should have had seed,
and never should have known good and evil, and the joy of our redemption,
and the eternal life which God giveth unto all the obedient (
Moses 5: 11).


D&C 132: 38  David also received many wives and concubines, and also Solomon
and Moses my servants, as also many others of my servants, from the
beginning
of
Creation
until this time; and in nothing did they sin save in those things which they
received not of me. [Research Note: This reference from God specifically implies that
Adam, who was at the beginning of Creation, received many wives and concubines,
which would have been given to Adam, by Eve; from some of their female posterity.
This would be consistent with Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ; she also being a spirit
daughter of God, the Eternal Father;
betrothed to God Ahman, by Angel Gabriel (Noah).
This would have directly involved the full consent of
Heavenly Mother; as the only means
provided, whereby she could obtain a future return to an eternal association with all of her
righteous and glorified mortal children. Prophets have taught that our immortal, celestial,
heavenly parents work together in a united manner, for the total comprehensive salvation
of the human family; brought to fulfillment through the blood Atonement of Jesus Christ.]
[Research Note: Plural Marriage "was believed in and practiced by the ancients"; noted
Brigham Young: Beneficial Effects of Polygamy (Journal of Discourses). As LDS President,
Brigham Young also stated "that if you desire with all your hearts to obtain the blessings
which Abraham obtained, you will be polygamists at least in your faith, or you will come
short of enjoying the salvation and the glory which Abraham has obtained. This is as true
as that God lives. . . . The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those
who enter into polygamy. Others attain unto a glory and may even be permitted to come
into the presence of the Father and the Son (in the Celestial Earth Kingdom; single, or in
a monogamously Temple sealed marriage), but they cannot (fully) reign as kings in glory,
because they had blessings offered unto them (to have power to save their own posterity),
and they refused to accept them."
The Power to Seal on Earth and in Heaven remained
actively upon the earth until the days of Elijah the Prophet, one of
Messengers with Keys.
Therefore, according to President Brigham Young, Jesus Christ had to have been married
to more than one wife, before he was exalted. Thus, the New Testament does not contain
a complete record of the Saints family relationships. Furthermore, Biblical society clearly
included plural marriage, as it was "believed in and practiced by the ancients",
(as three
years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared,
Enoch, and Methuselah; all just high priests, having the Holy Priesthood, after the Order
of the Son of God, with the residue of his, Adam's righteous posterity, into the green valley
of
Adam-ondi-Ahman); which society continued on through Shem, or Melchizedek, the son
of Noah; to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or Israel; down into the later Christian Gentile era.
This certainly indicates a tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records, when actually
compared mathematically, with the high number of global inhabitants, in pre-flood times.
Section 138, Vision of the Redemption of the Dead (Doctrine and Covenants 138): "Among
the great and mighty ones who were assembled in this vast congregation of the righteous
were Father Adam, the Ancient of Days and father of all, And our glorious Mother Eve,
with many of her faithful daughters who had lived through the (past Old Testament) ages
and worshiped the true and living God." Adam, or Michael, as the Holy Patriarchal Head
of the Human Family, by Right, has been delegated to hold the keys of the resurrection
of the dead, from Jesus Christ, or Jehovah; having previously passed through that order,
and continuously assists in bringing to pass the crowning of his posterity with immortality,
and eternal lives, under the direction of Son Ahman, the Messiah, Lord of Lords, and King
of Kings. President Joseph F. Smith validates tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records,: "I saw the hosts of the dead, both small and great." -- "And there were gathered
together in one place an innumerable company of the spirits of the just who had been
faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality;" "They were assembled
awaiting the advent of the Son of God into the spirit world, to declare their redemption
from the bands of death." (Thus, this would have been an innumerable company of spirits
having lived in Old Testament times, as "Their sleeping dust was to be restored unto its
perfect frame . . .") "While this vast multitude waited and conversed, rejoicing in the hour
of their deliverance from the chains of death, the Son of God appeared, declaring liberty
to the captives who had been faithful," Also, this multitude did not include all the wicked.
Specific mention is made of seeing and critically identifying additional Old Testament
personalities: Abel, the first martyr; Seth, one of the mighty ones; Noah, of the flood era;
Shem, the great high priest (Melchizedek); Abraham, the father of the faithful; Isaac,
Jacob; Moses, the great law-giver of Israel; Isaiah, who spoke of the Messiah;
Ezekiel;
Daniel; Elias, who appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration; and the prophet Malachi;
"All these and many more, even the prophets who dwelt among the Nephites and testified
of the coming of the Son of God, mingled in the vast assembly"; waiting for deliverance.
Furthermore, Jesus Christ mentions in
Matthew 7: 19–23, when asked why Moses permitted
divorce; Jesus Christ declared: "Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered
you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."
Isaiah 3 & 4 notes Zion and her daughters will be redeemed and cleansed in the coming
millennial day, by the restoration of polygamy: "And in that day, seven women shall
take hold of one man, saying: We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel;
only let us be called by thy name to take away our reproach"; re: 2 Nephi Chapter 14, as
mentioned in the Book of Mormon;
indicating modern day Zion is yet filthy, beforehand.
Since there was no divorce in the beginning, under the ancient patriarchal priesthood,
the unity of family associations would have greatly expanded the number of the children
living upon the earth, down to the time of the period of the administration of prophet Elijah.
Therefore, it is priesthood unrighteous dominion, in the cancellation of Temple Sealings,
or civil divorces, and not genetic DNA, that promotes extreme mental cruelty within lives
of separated posterity; that is the origination of adultery, fornication; all perverted forms
of biological disorientation of the children; a diminished
World Population Since Creation.]

Adamic Language [Research Note: Since God told Adam to give names to all cattle,
to the fowl of the air, to every beast of the field, the language base was extensive;
for whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. This
indicates the true biological foundations of the Tree of Life; and, as the whole earth
was of one language, Adam and Eve taught their posterity written language skills.

[Gilbert Burrington (author): Notes on Table I. (d); on page 1,
and continued on page 2, concerning the Sons--(d) Daughters (of Adam.)
Josephus, in his Jewish Ant. B. 1, c. ii. sect. 3, says, that Adam had many more
children than those recorded in sacred history; and Whiston, in his Note on this
passage, observes, that an old tradition says, that the number of Adam's children
were fifty-six; thirty-three sons, and twenty-three daughters. According to Cedrenus,
the number of Adam's sons was thirty-three, and of his daughters twenty-seven;
Syncellus also, Chronograph. p. 11, makes Adam's sons thirty-three, but his daughters
only twenty-three. D'Herbelot informs us, that the Eastern writers attribute two other
sons to Adam, besides the three mentioned in Scripture, Abdalhareth, the elder brother
of Cain, and Rocail, the younger brother of the patriarch Seth. See D'Herbelot's
Bibl. Orient V. Rocail; and Univer. Hist. Ant. part, Vol. i. p. 150, Note I. Edit. 8vo.
The Mohammedan authors, also say, that Adam had two daughters, the one
the twin-sister of Cain, or, as those writers call him, Cabil or Kabil; and the other
of Abel, or, as they express the name, Habil. Cain's twin-sister was called Aclima,
Aclimah, Aclimia, or Aclimiah, or, as Abulfaragius writes the name, Klimia. Eutychius,
and other Eastern christians call her Azrun, others, Azura, and others Calmana
and Calmanna. Abel's twin-sister (page 2) has the name of Lebudah given to her
by Mohammedan writers. Eutychius, and others call her Owain, which D'Herbelot,
with his accustomed inattention to accuracy in expressing proper names, writes
Ouain, Ovain, and Vain. By others this person is called Delborah, Decla, and Edocla.
See D'Herbelot's Bibl. Orient. V. Azrun, Cabil, Vain; Calmet's Dict. Art. Abel, Azura, Cain;
and Sale's Transl. Koran, Ch. v. Note n. The authour of the Book entitled The Small
Genesis, as quoted by Epiphanius Adv. Haer. B. i. p. 287, and by Syneellus in his
Chron. p. 2, says, that Adam had two daughters, Asua, Asuam, or Save, and Azura;
the former of whom was the wife of Cain, and the latter of Seth. The Reader, if he
please, may further consult on this subject J. Albert. Fabricius's Edit. of Cod. Pseudepigr.

geography (location): Adam-ondi-Ahman / Adam-ondi-Ahman / Zion
Spring Hill, Daviess County,
Missouri (USA) is named in scripture, by the Lord:
Adam-ondi-Ahman (Garden of Eden). The land where Adam dwelt was part
of the geographic area of the Garden of Eden; insomuch, that Adam and Eve
heard the voice of the Lord from the way toward the Garden of Eden, speaking
unto them. To Adam and Eve, it appears to have been a familiar, remembered
sacred spot, where they had previously had personal contact with God;
contiguous, neighboring, or adjacent to Spring Hill, Daviess County, MO (USA).

The Garden of Eden was located on what is now the North American continent.
D&C 117: 8 Is there not room enough on the mountains of Adam-ondi-Ahman,
and on the plains of Olaha Shinehah, or the land where Adam dwelt, suggests
a different geographical configuration for the North American land mass.
According to
Genesis 2: 10-14, a river went out of Eden to water the garden;
and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. The name of
the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah,
where there is gold; And the gold of that land is good; there is bdellium
and the onyx stone. And the name of the second river is Gihon; the same
is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. And the name of the third
river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the
fourth river is Euphrates. The mountains of Adam-ondi-Ahman, by rainfall
or massive underground sources, brought forth a river that went out of the
Garden of Eden, to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and
became into four heads, within the unified confines of one worldwide land
mass area; being an apparent elevated area, central to the location of the
current State of Missouri, in the USA, North American Continent (A.D. 2024).


Valley of Adam-ondi-Ahman, reconstructed with connections to present day
gold mining and Pangaea, shows a pattern of finds from the United States,
flowing down through Middle and Central America, parallel South American
and African continental connections, to deposits within southern
South Africa;
to
India, Indonesia and Australia; also, tributary connections into northwest
United States, Canada, Alaska, to Russian Siberia and Middle East regions.
Biblical and other texts, suggest that the
identification of regions by large river
systems, indicating the ancient use of these waterways for transport and
travel (
D&C 61). "Behold, I, the Lord, in the beginning blessed the waters;
but in the last days, by the mouth of my servant John, I cursed the waters.
Wherefore, the days will come that no flesh shall be safe upon the waters.
And it shall be said in days to come that none is able to go up to the land
of Zion upon the waters, but he that is upright in heart. And, as I, the Lord,
in the beginning cursed the land, even so in the last days have I blessed it,
in its time, for the use of my saints, that they may partake the fatness thereof."
The mention of gold and other precious metals gave sign posts to the posterity
of Adam, for determination of location in relation to various family migrations,
from the
region of the first human homestead, situated near the garden of Eden.
And Adam and Eve, his wife, called upon the name of the Lord, and they heard
the voice of the Lord from the way toward the Garden of Eden, speaking unto
them, and they saw him not; for they were shut out from his presence. . . .
And from that time forth, the sons and daughters of Adam began to divide
two and two in the land, and to till the land, and to tend flocks, and they
also begat sons and daughters.

Adam  Besides the Fall having had to do with Adam and Eve, causing a
change to come over them, that change affected all human nature, all of
the natural creations, all of the creation of animals, plants--all kinds of life
were changed. The earth itself became subject to death. (Thus, for their
own survival, the primary occupation of Adam and Eve, after the Fall,
was related to farming; as they labored together to obtain sustenance
for themselves, as well as for the preservation of their children; by tilling
the ground, or soil, and establishing flocks for food and drink sources, as
well as raw materials to be used in the production of clothing and shelter.
Adam and Eve, and their posterity, were professional agricultural specialists.
Adam had a knowledge of all
animal species, having recorded their names.
Additionally, from a religious context, Adam and Eve were tithed; offering
as sacrifices, the firstlings of their flocks, in similitude of the blood offering
of Jesus Christ, who later came into the world, as the Savior of mankind.)
(
Harold B. Lee)

The celestial environment in the Garden of Eden, including the celestial
bodies of Adam and Eve, had no
"Radioactive Decay": the death process.
After the Fall, the vegetarian animals and some plants became carnivorous.
Adam and Eve were in a state of pure innocence, and they were physically
naked, prior to the Fall. The Garden of Eden was created as an incubator,
that kept their bodies warm, at a particular temperature range and correct
humidity, noting some variation in the Bible, during cool evening breezes;
And they heard the voice of the Lord God, as they were walking in the garden,
in the cool of the day. This indicates the earth at that time was rotating on
its axis, around the Sun. Nevertheless, since there was no death whatsoever,
in the Garden of Eden, there would have been no autumn "falling leaves";
nor, harsh winter weather, to afflict two totally naked individuals, being in
direct contact with Heavenly Father, as well as nurturing Heavenly Mother.
This would indicate no severe seasonal changes occurred, that could have
caused anything similar to desert heat or freezing winter climate changes.
Thus, astronomically, the earth, in the beginning, would not have had its
spin axis tilted with respect to its orbital plane, as this is what presently
causes the seasons; because of the earth's elliptical orbit; with days and
nights being equal in length at all times; And I, the Lord God, took the man,
and put him into the garden of Eden, to dress it, and to keep it. Adam also
was required by commandment to name every living creature that the Lord
God formed out of the ground; all cattle, fowl of the air, and beast of the field.

The Priesthood was first given to Adam. He obtained the First Presidency and held
the Keys of it. He obtained it in the creation before the world was formed, and they
remained on the earth until the Old Testament times of Elijah the Prophet; the last
of those prophets to hold the Keys of the Sealing Power of the Melchizedek Priesthood.
All the ancient prophets of the Old Testament times had the Melchizedek Priesthood.
The Order of the Melchizedek Priesthood was formerly called the High Priesthood of
the Holy Order of God, or the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God. It is
the Church of the Firstborn, or glorified Patriarchal Priesthood celestial heir members.
The sealed family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children.
Old Testament Biblical Records include statements concerning High Priests presiding
in, or holding
Priesthood Keys in the Melchizedek Priesthood, as well as Bishops, who
hold the mighty sacred keys over
The Aaronic Priesthood: The Ministering of Angels.
Priesthood of Aaron restoration was performed by John the Baptist. The
testimony of
Jesus Christ was: This is he, of whom it is written, behold, I send my messenger before
thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those
that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he
that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. And all the people that heard
him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of dear John.
Thus, we
carefully listen to Andrea Bocelli - Angels We Have Heard On High - YouTube™.
Also: Listen to the Voice of Jesus Christ, your Lord, your God, and your Redeemer, whose
word is quick and powerful. And also John the son of Zacharias, which Zacharias he (Elias,
to whom I have committed the keys of bringing to pass the restoration of all things spoken
by the mouth of all the holy prophets since the world began, concerning the last days),
visited and gave promise that he should have a son, and his name should be John,
and he should be filled with the spirit of Elias; Which John I have have sent unto you,
my servants, Joseph Smith, Jun., and Oliver Cowdery, to ordain you unto the first priest-
hood, which you have received, that you might be called and ordained even as Aaron.


Moses 6: 64  And it came to pass, when the Lord had spoken with Adam, our
father, that Adam cried unto the Lord, and he was caught away by the Spirit
of the Lord, and was carried down into the water, and was laid under the water,
and was brought forth out of the water.  Adam had, prior to the Fall, helped to
make and organize this world, as
Michael, the Archangel, in the spirit world, with
Jehovah and Eloheim.  He is the head patriarchal priesthood representative of
all mankind, under Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten of the Father, (through whom
the worlds are and were created, and the inhabitants thereof are begotten sons

and daughters unto God).  [Research Note:  When Adam and Eve were cast out of the
Garden of Eden, they became subject to physical death, as well as being spiritually
excommunicated from the presence of God.  They were given Temple garments
to wear, made of skins (the first biological animal deaths), to protect them from
the temporal elements, during this probationary excommunicated time period.
Adam and Eve fell into a temporal married status.  After Adam received some
restoration of his priesthood ordinances, he baptized his wife Eve.  Adam and Eve
were the first members of the

and all those plans and principles by which any one is enabled to secure the fullness

, even Jesus Christ,
upon this earth.  Special priesthood ordinances were performed to restore the Eternal
Marriage Covenant, received from Jehovah in the Garden of Eden, prior to the fall.]
D&C 107:53  Adam was the presiding High Priest D&C 107: 3 in the Holy Priesthood,
after the Order of the Son of God.  After his death, the Ancient of Days, entered into
paradise, waiting there for thousands of years, looking forward to the resurrection
of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Master.  Adam and Eve, with their righteous posterity,
were gathered together when Christ died; an innumerable company of just spirits,
those who had been faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality.
These dead individuals had looked upon the long absence of their spirits from their
bodies as a bondage.  The Lord Jesus Christ taught them, and gave them power to
come forth, after His resurrection from the dead, to enter into His Father’s kingdom,
there to receive mansions on high, and be crowned with immortality and eternal life.
Jesus Christ freely gave His life in pure charity.  He manifested appreciation and true
reciprocation for the physical body He obtained from Mary, through the lineage
of Adam, which granted the Messiah the opportunity to be exalted to Eternal Lives;
providing also, the means by which all mankind might be saved, through repentance
and perfect obedience to the fullness of the ordinances of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

puzzled family historians for years." There are however, scientific limitations involved,
when considering Latter-day Saint, or Christian belief systems, based upon Bible text;
showing The Internal Consistency and Historical Reliability of the Biblical Genealogies.
Scott Ray Woodward (biologist)] extracted and typed DNA going back millions of years.
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His
EASTER resurrection, validated by LDS (D&C 138),
suggest serious reconsiderations on the actual value of DNA studies, extrapolated back
in temporal time. Foremost of all, What are resurrected bodies like?, declares they are
physical; and thus, no physical bodies upon the earth for molecular science to evaluate.
Moroni, who lived in the fifth century AD, additionally is a physically resurrected being.
So what is left of the ancient molecular past, to scientifically evaluate, are remains from
wicked societies, and social environments, destined for a future Telestial or Terrestrial
eternal existence. All these societies, except for Noah and his family relationships, had
disruptive global flood experiences, degrading and altering their molecular body purity
(as well as a stated corruption of all flesh, intermingled between animals and humans).
Additionally, all spirit is matter, but it is more refined and pure, such that it is infinitely
incapable of being measured by modern technological instruments; nor by DNA data.
God of course knows all of His spirit children, and knows from the beginnings of their
spiritual birth in heaven; thus He knows the past, present and future of the Universe,
knowing beforehand, the beginnings and ends of all the works of His own Creations.

In conclusion then, What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
The Book of Mormon is the greatest primary witness on the face of the earth to validate
the authenticity of the Ancient Biblical Record, with Moroni as the greatest key witness.
The Prophet Moroni testifies emphatically that the Theory of Evolution is so completely
false, as noted in Line upon Line: Moroni 10:3–5. Behold, I would exhort you, that when
ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would
remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation
of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your
hearts. . . . And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. . . .
The key element of this witness testimony concerning the real mortal existence of Adam,
and the factual evidence of the creation of the earth, and all the subsequent related things
thereto, is clearly stated within The Book of Ether. Moroni specifically abridged the record
of the Jaredites. Therefore, from a professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
he is an intimate, personally involved, eye-witness to this account of those twenty and four
plates which were found by the people of Limhi, which is called the Book of Ether. Moroni
mentions: "And as I suppose that the first part of this record, which speaks concerning the
creation of the world, and also of Adam, and an account from that time even to the great
tower, and whatsoever things transpired among the children of men until that time, is had
among the Jews-- Therefore I do not write those things which transpired from the days of
Adam until that time; but they are had upon the plates; and whoso findeth them, the same
will have power that he may get the full account" (as they are written in Adamic language).
Additionally
Legal Records, the Brass Plates, held in the originating possession of Laban,
contained not only the Jewish scriptures, but also Lehi's own genealogy back to Joseph
in Egypt. From a dispassionate, professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
this directly relates to the genealogical Truths taught in 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi, Moroni had
access to the Brass Plates of Laban and knew that those records came forth out of the City
of Jerusalem; and were handed down intact by the seed of originating Nephite father Lehi.
Nevertheless, the very false theory, or secular doctrine of Evolution is currently, and very
openly, and proudly; blatantly expounded upon, by open-minded "scientific" leadership,
from the sacred halls of learning, at
Brigham Young University. Yet, Nephi, son of Lehi,
had a vision of great significance, recorded in
1 Nephi 13:20–42: Plain and Precious Truths.
In particular, from a genealogical research standpoint, 1 Nephi 13: 23, the Gentiles, or us,
today, had a book, which an angel from the Throne of God in Heaven declared, stating:
Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew (collectively, the ancestry of the Jews).
"The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants
of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel (from Old Testament times);
and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record
like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many;
nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house
of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles."
Organic Evolution is false.

time period: 4000 B.C. to 3070 B.C. Patriarchs (Bible) - Lifespans
Adam was 130 years old when Seth was born (Gen. 5:3).  And the days of Adam,
after he had begotten Seth, were 800 years, making him 930 years old when he
died (Gen. 5:4-5).  Lamech, the 9th from Adam, and the father of Noah, was 56
years old when Adam died; Methuselah, 243; Enoch, 308; Jared, 470;

Seth, and Adam, were all living at the same time, and beyond all controversy
were all preachers of righteousness.

Chronology - JewishEncyclopedia.com
Chronology of the Bible: The chronology of the Bible is an elaborate system
of lifespans, 'generations', and other means by which the Masoretic Hebrew
Bible (the text of the Bible most commonly in use today) measures the passage
of events from the creation to . . . (the year of the re-dedication of the Second
Temple). . . . The passage of time is measured initially by adding the ages of
the Patriarchs at the birth of their firstborn sons, later through express statements,
and later still by the synchronized reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah. Later,
The Great Order of the World, or
Seder Olam Rabbah, detailed all the dates of
biblical events from creation to
Alexander the Great's conquest of Persia. Thus,
Traditional Jewish Chronology has long preserved a record of dates and time
sequences of important historical events related to the Jewish nation. Josephus
painstakingly listed the complete panoply of Jewish high priests who served
during the
Second Temple period and which, by comparison of his dates when
each man officiated as high priest, can be used as a time indicator to determine
the span of time in which the Second Temple had its existence. In Early Jewish
Writings,
Flavius Josephus Against Apion. Book I, expounds upon the historical
accuracy and applications of official Ancient handed down record compilations.

. . . "But now as to our forefathers, that they took no less care about writing such
records, (for I will not say they took greater care than the others I spoke of), and
that they committed that matter to their (Aaronic) high priests and to their prophets,
(Ancient Patriarchal High Priests), and that these records have been written all
along down to our own times with the utmost accuracy, nay, if it be not too bold
for me to say it, our history will be so written hereafter, - I shall endeavor briefly
to inform you. 7. For our forefathers did not only appoint the best of these (Aaronic)
priests, and those that attended upon the Divine worship, for that design from
the beginning, (or, from the time of Adam and Eve), but made provision that the
stock of the (Aaronic) priests should continue unmixed and pure; for he who is
partaker of the priesthood must propagate of a wife of the same nation, without
having any regard to money, or any other dignities, but he is to make a scrutiny,
and take his wife's genealogy  from the ancient (Bible) tables, and procure many
witnesses to it. (7) Of this accuracy of the Jews before and in our Savior's time, in
carefully preserving their genealogies all along, particularly those of the priests,
see Josephus's Life, sect. 1. This accuracy seems to have ended at the destruction
of Jerusalem by Titus, or, however, at that by Adrian." [Further relevant information

nothing to him, and because he was goaded by his own consciousness of his base birth,
burned the records . . . of their families, thinking to appear noble if no one else was able

gers . . . of mixed descent." -

about his Idumaean and therefore only half-Jewish origins, which many Jews regarded
as disqualifying him from legitimate rule over Israel . . . , that his court historian Nicolaus
of Damascus gave him a pure Jewish ancestry
. . . presumably as part of an attempt
by Herod himself to conceal his origins, and that his fear of rivals to his throne led
to decimation of the leading Jewish aristocratic families . . ." -

Continuing, "And this is our practice not only in Judea, but wheresoever any body of men
of our nation do live, and even there an exact catalogue of our priests' marriages is kept,
I mean at Egypt and at Babylon, or in any other place of the rest of the habitable earth,
whithersoever our priests are scattered, for they send to Jerusalem the ancient names of
their parents in writing, as well as those of their remoter ancestors, and signify who are
the witnesses also." [Research Note:
Asenath: Bible | Jewish Women's Archive definitely
appears to be an absolute fictional novel. In Volume 02 Journal of Discourses, page 269,
Brigham Young notes: "The Book of Mormon came to Ephraim, for Joseph Smith was a
pure Ephraimite, and the Book of Mormon was revealed to him, and while he lived he
made it his business to search for those who believed the Gospel." Joseph Smith, Jr.,
as a direct descendant of the ancient Joseph in Egypt, and according to the patriarchal
law of the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God; it would have been contrary
to family standards to marry out of the pure descendants of the House of Abraham. This
clearly suggests that when Pharaoh honored Joseph. by giving him as a wife, Asenath,
"the daughter of Potiphera, priest from the city of On"; she was a relative of Abraham.
Asenath: Midrash and Aggadah | Jewish Women's Archive addresses this conundrum.
Accordingly, Ephraim and Manasseh are worthy descendents, who continue Jacob's way.

"But if any war falls out, such as have fallen out a great many of them already, . . .
those priests that survive them compose new tables of genealogy out of the old records,
and examine the circumstances of the women that remain, for still they do not admit
of those that have been captives, as suspecting that they had conversation with some
foreigners. But what is the strongest argument of our exact management in this matter
is what I am now going to say, that we have the names of our (Aaronic) high priests
from father to son set down in our records for the interval of two thousand years, and
if any of these have been transgressors of these rules, they are prohibited to present
themselves at the altar, or to be partakers of any other of our purifications, and this
is justly, or rather necessarily done, because every one is not permitted of his own
accord to be a writer, nor is there any disagreement in what is written, they being
only prophets that have written the original and earliest accounts of things as they
learned them of God himself by inspiration, and others have written what happened
in their own times, and that in a very distinct manner also. . . . It is true, our history
hath been written since
Artaxerxes very particularly, but hath not been esteemed
of the like authority with the former by our forefathers, because there hath not been
an exact succession of prophets since that time; and how firmly we have given credit
to these books of our own nation is evident by what we do, for during so many ages
as have already passed, no one has been so bold as either to add any thing to them,
to take any thing from them, or to make any change in them; but it is become natural
to all Jews immediately, and from their very birth, to esteem these books to contain
Divine doctrines, and to persist in them, and if occasion be willingly to die for them.
For it is no new thing for our captives, many of them in number, and frequently in time,
to be seen to endure racks and deaths of all kinds upon the theatres, that they may
not be obliged to say one word against our laws and the records that contain them,
whereas there are none at all among the Greeks who would undergo the least harm
on that account, no, nor in case all the writings that are among them were to be
destroyed, for they take them to be such discourses as are framed agreeably to the
inclinations of those that write them; and they have justly the same opinion of the
ancient writers, since they see some of the present generation bold enough to write
about such affairs, wherein they were not present, nor had concern enough to inform
themselves about them from those that knew them, examples of which may be had
in this late war of ours, where some persons have written histories, and published
them, without having been in the places concerned, or having been near them
when the actions were done; but these men put a few things together by hearsay,
and insolently abuse the world, and call these writings by the name of Histories. . . .

I shall begin with the writings of the Egyptians; not indeed of those that have written
in the Egyptian language, which it is impossible for me to do. But Manetho was a man
who by birth an Egyptian, yet had he made himself master of the Greek learning,
as is very evident, for he wrote the history of his own country in the Greek tongue,
by translating it, as he saith himself, out of their sacred records; he also finds great
fault with Herodotus for his ignorance and false relations of Egyptian affairs. Now
this Manetho, in the second book of his Egyptian History, writes concerning us (Jews)
in the following manner. I will set down his very words, as if I were to bring the very
man himself into a court for a witness. . . . This whole nation was styled HYCSOS,
that is, Shepherd-kings: for the first syllable HYC, according to the sacred dialect,
denotes a king, as is SOS a shepherd; . . . in another copy it is said that this word
does not denote Kings, but on the contrary, denotes Captive Shepherds, . . . they built
a city in that country which is now called Judea, and that large enough to contain
this great number of men, (their whole families and effects, not fewer in number than
two hundred and forty thousand), and called it Jerusalem. (9) Now Manetho, in another
book of his, says, "That this nation thus called Shepherds, were also called Captives,
in their sacred books." And this account of his is the truth, for feeding of sheep was
the employment of our forefathers in the most ancient ages (10) and as they led such
a wandering life in feeding sheep, they were called Shepherds. Nor was it without
reason that they were called Captives by the Egyptians, since one of our ancestors,
Joseph, told the king of Egypt that he was a captive, and afterward sent for his brethren
into Egypt by the king's permission. But as for these matters, I shall make a more exact
inquiry about them elsewhere. [Research Note: Abel, one of the sons of Adam and Eve,
is recorded as a
keeper of sheep. The Contents of the Plates of Brass further validates
a copy of the Law, or the Five Books of Moses, was historically preserved by the Jews.
What Are the Five Books of Moses? - Chabad.org: the
Torah, the foundation of Judaism.
The Book of Mormon mentions the history of the Jews, further confirming the words
of Flavius Josephus, including specifically the prophet Lehi genealogy, to circa 600 B. C.;
indicating from this primary source, that Lehi descended from Joseph's son Manasseh.

the whole faith of the world, from that time down to the present (now to the 21st Century),

Eleazar ben Asher ha-Levi — Brill, was a Medieval collector of ancient record
     sources, "who lived somewhere in the Rhine Provinces at the end of the
     thirteenth and the beginning of the fourteenth century." 
Moses Gaster, Ph.D.,
     translated the first part of this Bodleian Library (Oxford) ms., titled:
    
Sefer (Sepher) ha-zikhronot (Sefer ha-Zikhronot)  There are minute descriptions
     of the descendants of Noah and the records state exactly how many children
     each of the Patriarchs had, beginning with Adam and Eve, including names
     of the wives of each of the Biblical personages.
  "(1) Adam begat three sons
     and three daughters, Cain and his twin wife Qalmana, Abel and his twin wife
     Deborah, and Seth and his twin wife Nōba. (2) And Adam, after he had begotten
     Seth, lived 700 years, and there were eleven sons and eight daughters born to him.
     These are the names of his sons: ‘Eli, Shēēl, Ṣurēi, ‘Almiel, Berokh, Ke‘al, Naḥath,
     Zarḥamah, Ṣisha, Māḥtel, and ‘Anat (###); and the names of his daughters are:
     Ḥavah, Giṭsh, Harē, Bikha, Zifath, Hēkhiah, Shaba, and ‘Azin.  Listed out of order:
     (11) Cain and his wife Temed dwelt in the land of Nod. And Cain knew his wife
     Tēmēd when he was fifteen years old, and she bore him Enoch, and he built seven
     cities and called the first Enoch, after the name of his son. (The names of the remaining
     six were): Maōlē, Lēed, Gēzeh, Yeshbah, Qeled, and Yēbab. (12) And after Enoch, Cain
     begat three sons, Ulaf, Lēzef, and Fuzal, and two daughters, Ṣēṭa and Maḥat. (13) And
     Enoch took Nība, the daughter of Shem, to wife, & she bore him Zēra, Qu‘ith, & Maddaf.
     And Zera begat Methushael, and
Methushael, Lemech. (14) And Lemech took two wives.
     Ada bore Jabal, the father of all those who dwell in tents, and Jubal, the father of all who
     play upon the harp and the reed-pipe. (15) Then the inhabitants of the land began to
     commit violence and to defile the wives of their neighbours, thus kindling the anger
     of the Lord. And they then began to play upon the harp and the reed-pipe, and to sport
     with every kind of song, corrupting the earth. This same Jubal discovered the science
     of music, whence arose all the melodies for the two above-named instruments. This is
     a great science, as I have explained in its proper place (above). (16) And it came to pass,
     when Jubal heard the prophecy of Adam concerning the two judgments about to come
     upon the world by means of the flood, the dispersion and fire, that he wrote down the
     science of music upon two pillars, one of fine white marble and the other of brick, so
     that in the event of the one melting and being destroyed by the waters, the other would
     be saved. (17) And Sillah bore Tubal Cain, who used to sharpen all instruments of iron
     for war, and worked in all manner of iron. He also invented the art of alloying lead and
     iron together, so as to temper the iron and to make the blade sharper. He also invented
     the pincers, the hammer, and the axe, and all instruments of iron. (18) The sister of Tubal
     Cain was Na‘amah. It was she who invented the art of weaving and sewing silk, wool,
     and flax, and the whole art of the fancy-worker and the weaver. Ṣillah also bore Miza
     and Tipa. Tubal was a worker in tin, lead, iron, copper, silver, and gold. Then men began
     to make graven images for their worship. (19) ‘Adah also bore Jabal, who was the father
     of those who dwell in tents and attend to the flock. He discovered the work appertaining
     to shepherds, and made tents and pens for the cattle, one for the sheep and another for
     the oxen, distinct from each other. He also invented the locks, as a safeguard to prevent
     robbers entering the house, like this, χ. (20) In the time of Enosh men were called
     princes, judges, and made gods, applying to them the name of God; and temples
     were made for them, but they were overthrown in the time of Re‘u.  Compare:
    
Genesis 4: 16-24.
  And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt
     in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
[which according to modern revelation,
     would be located east of
Daviess County, Missouri. And Cain knew his wife;
     and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, & called  the name
     of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.
  And unto Enoch was born Irad:
     and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.
     And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was
Adah, and the name
     of the other
Zillah:. And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents,
     and of such as have cattle. And his brother’s name was Jubal: he was the father
     of all such as handle the harp and organ. And
Zillah, she also bare Tubal-cain,
     an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubal-cain
     was
Naamah. . . .  Note: Cain apparently married two women, his twin wife
     Qalmana and his wife Temed,  Also, Cain's descendant Lamech took unto him
     two wives, Adah and Zillah.  This shows polygamy as the normal practice for
     the patriarchal unit of man,
D&C 132: 38
, beginning with Adam, who must have
     been commanded by God, to be married to some of Adam's own female posterity;
     with the full consent and permission of Eve, the originating Mother of all human,
     mortal, living, souls.
Line upon Line: Moses 1:39: "For behold, this is my work
     and my glory--to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man."
     [Gilbert Burrington (author): Notes on Table I. (k); on page 5, i. Lamech.
     The Hebrew Masoretically-pointed text reads Lemech, and thus our English translators
     in the Marg. Gen. iv. 18. Josephus, in his Jewish Ant. B. i. c. ii. sect. 2, says that Lamech
     had seventy-seven children by his two wives Adah and Zillah.]

L.  Antiquities of the Jews - Book I - From the Creation to the Death of Isaac
     "Now when Noah had lived three hundred and fifty years after the Flood, and that
     all that time happily, he died, having lived the number of nine hundred and fifty
     years. But let no one, upon comparing the lives of the ancients with our lives, and
     with the few years which we now live, think that what we have said of them is false;
     or make the shortness of our lives at present an argument, that neither did they attain
     to so long a duration of life, for those ancients were beloved of God, and [lately]
     made by God himself; and because their food was then fitter for the prolongation
     of life, might well live so great a number of years: and besides, God afforded them
     a longer time of life on account of their virtue, and the good use they made of it in
     astronomical and geometrical discoveries, which would not have afforded the time
     of foretelling [the periods of the stars] unless they had lived six hundred years; for
     the
Great Year is completed in that interval. Now I have for witnesses to what I have
     said, all those that have written Antiquities, both among the Greeks and barbarians;
     for even Manetho, who wrote the Egyptian History, and Berosus, who collected the
    
Chaldean Monuments, and Mochus, and Hestieus, and besides these, Hieronymus
     the Egyptian, and those who composed the Phoenician History, agree to what I here
     say: Hesiod also, and Hecatseus, Hellanicus, and Acusilaus; and besides these,
     Ephorus and Nicolaus relate that the ancients lived a thousand years. But as to these
     matters, let every one look upon them as he thinks fit."  [Research Note: One Day in
     the process of Creation, to God Ahman on
Kolob, is equivalent to 1,000 earth years.
     Berossus, or Berosus, circa 3rd century B. C., reckoned time in intervals of 60, 600,
     and 3600 years: a base-60 (
Sexagesimal system); with 5 as one of the prime numbers.
     The number of seconds in minute, the number of minutes in an hour is also base-60.
     Grammar and Alphabet of the Egyptian Language, circa July–circa November 1835,
     has characters arranged into five degrees; being arranged differently in each part.
    
Mathematics/Astronomy - Wikiversity, shows that Altitude (Alt), sometimes referred
     to as elevation, is the angle between the object and the observer's local horizon. It
     is expressed as an angle between 0 degrees to 90 degrees; and 5 divides into 90
     degrees = 18 times; and that 6 divides into 90 degrees = 15 times. Now, the
Behenian
     fixed stars are a selection of fifteen stars considered especially useful for magical
     applications in the medieval astrology of Europe and the Arab world; each is also
     connected with a gemstone and plant; and when a planet was within six degrees
     of an associated star, this influence was thought to be particularly strong. However,
    
Facsimile 2,  from the Book of Abraham, notes Fig. 3. Is made to represent God,
     sitting upon his throne, clothed with power and authority; with a crown of eternal
     light upon his head, representing also the grand Key-words of the Holy Priesthood,
     as revealed to Adam in the Garden of Eden, as also to Seth, Noah, Melchizedek,
     Abraham, and all to whom the Priesthood was revealed (listed in Patriarchal Order).
     There were six days given in the scriptures for the creation of this earth by
Elohim:
     The heads of the Gods, or, the head one of the Gods, appointed one God for us.
     And, the Sun, borrows its light from Kolob through the medium of Kae-e-vanrash,
     which is the grand Key, or in other words, the governing power, which governs
     fifteen (15) other fixed planets or stars, as also Floeese or the Moon, the Earth,
     and the Sun in their annual revolutions. The Ancient Jewish Urim and Thummim
     had the names of the twelve (12) Tribes engraved on the breastpiece, to which
     were added those of the three
covenant Patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob;
     together with the word shevet ("tribe") so as to encompass the whole alphabet;
     thus representing the (3) Patriarchal High Priest Heads of the full House of Israel;
     and the Priestly Breastplate, having individual Tribal gemstones, or The Jewels;
     linguistically together in oracle revelations, mathematically and astronomically.
     A full shadow of the Earth on the Moon has an apparent radius of curvature equal
     to the difference between the apparent radii of the Earth and the Sun as seen from
     the Moon. This radius can be seen to be equal to 0.75 degree, from which (with the
     solar apparent radius 0.25 degree) we get an Earth apparent radius of 1 degree.
     This yields for the Earth-Moon distance 60 Earth radii of 384,000 km. This procedure
     was first used by Aristarchus of Samos and Hipparchus; and later, Ptolemy's works.

M. (red earth) Adam - Smith's Bible Dictionary -
     (Red, One From The Soil, Beginning)
Adam: meaning and etymology
     [Research Note:
Doctrine and Covenants 107] states The Twelve (Apostles)
     are a Traveling Presiding High Council, to officiate in the name of the Lord,
     under the direction of the Presidency of the Church, agreeable to the institution
     of heaven; to build up the church, and regulate all the affairs of the same in all
     nations, first unto the Gentiles and secondly unto the Jews. . . . The Twelve being
     sent out, holding the keys, to open the door by the proclamation of the gospel of
     Jesus Christ, and first unto the Gentiles and then unto the Jews. . . . It is the duty
     of the Twelve, in all large branches of the church, to ordain evangelical ministers,
     as they shall be designated unto them by revelation--   Adam was given the Keys
     of the Universe in the Garden of Eden, being endowed by the Word of Jesus Christ;
     to tend the Garden and take care of the earth and all forms of physical intelligence.
     When restored back to the favor of God, with his wife Eve; they jointly presided
     over all of their posterity, as an independent First Presidency, as King and Queen,
     with full authority as prophet and prophetess, priest and priestess, all one together.
     The priesthood order of evangelical ministers was confirmed by them, to be handed
     down from father to son, and rightly belongs to the literal descendants of the chosen
     seed, within their own posterity, the posterity of Adam and Eve, to whom the promises
     were made. This order was instituted in the days of Adam, and came down by lineage,
     when Adam ordained Seth (aged 69 years); when Adam ordained Enos (aged 134 years,
     and four months); when Adam ordained Cainan (aged 87 years); when Adam ordained
     and blessed Mahalaleel (aged 496 years); when Adam ordained  and blessed Jared
     (aged 200 years); when Adam ordained Enoch (aged 25 years) and blessed Enoch,
     (aged 65 years); when Adam ordained Methuselah (aged 100 years). Seth was further
     invested with this Priesthood, when Seth ordained Lamech (aged 32 years), and also
     Methuselah had the fullness of the Patriarchal Priesthood, when Methuselah ordained
     Noah (aged 10 years). Thus, the authority of the full Apostleship, was upon the earth,
     when three years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, (who was especially
     blessed by Adam three years previous to his: Ancient of Days Adam's, death); Enos,
     Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, Enoch, and Methuselah, who were all just high priests,
     (having the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God), with the residue of his,
     Adam's posterity who were righteous, into the valley of Adam-ondi-Ahman, and there
     bestowed upon them his last blessing. And the Lord appeared unto them, and they
     rose up and blessed Adam, and called him Michael, the prince, the archangel.
     And the Lord (personally) administered comfort unto Adam, and said unto him:
     "I have set thee to be at the head; a multitude of nations shall come of thee,
     and thou art a prince over them forever." And Adam stood up in the midst
     of the congregation; and, notwithstanding he was bowed down with age,
     being full of the Holy Ghost, predicted whatsoever should befall his posterity
     unto the latest generation. These things were all written in the book of Enoch,
     (in the pure Adamic language), and are to be testified of in due time.

General Conference]
Nov 23 The Sealing Power -  The sealing power makes individual salvation and family
exaltation universally available to the children of God. [Research Note: This elucidated
sealing power is inseparably connected with the
Church of the Firstborn. Celestial Saints
of God dwell in the Father's presence, become like Him, and receive all things from Him;
have part in the First Resurrection and will reign with Christ in the millennium; similar to
the Saints who were residents of Zion in the days of our great patriarchal father
Enoch.
See: The Joseph Smith Papers: "firstborn" Search:
Doctrine and Covenants 93; et cetera.
Jesus Christ presides over all the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God; thus,
faithful Saints will receive through Jesus Christ, the
rights of inheritance of the Firstborn,
with
Adam and Eve, and all their sealed posterity, within the Celestial Patriarchal Order.
Noah, who is Angel Gabriel, is next to Adam in priesthood, or the Patriarchal Priesthood,
as he was the father of all living is his day, and to him was given the dominion. And thus,
for Adam to retain his standing as head of the human family, under the Lord Jesus Christ,
various keys of the Priesthood held in this grand conference, in all dispensations of time,
by all successive church officer leaderships will be returned to Adam, through said Noah,
at Adam-ondi-Ahman. T
he Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr. actually saw men, before they had
ascended from the tomb, as though they were getting up slowly. They took each other
by the hand and said to each other, "My father, my son, my mother, my daughter,
my brother, my sister." This would require a Priesthood prerequisite of Patriarchal
Order, reestablished upon the earth, as in the days of Noah, down to all offices of
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; before ushering in the Millennium;
and in The Parable of the Ten Virgins, gathering faithful, wise, prepared virgins.

It is very obvious, upon introspection, that the original spelling of A-w-m-e-n, with an "e",
being changed to Awman, and then later to Ahman; it implies definitional feeling sense
of Awe-man, or The Delightful Man; as Ah, by definition and meaning expresses delight.
In other words awe, to the righteous: His Glorious Countenance gives a Fullness of Joy;
as Joseph Smith, Jr. experienced a
fullness of Joy when he saw both Father and Son:
"My soul was filled with love and for many days I could rejoice with great joy and the Lord
was with me" (1832). Ergo, Joseph had the Holy Ghost as his constant aid and companion.
Alexander Neibaur, Journal, 24 May 1844, extract, Page 23, notes Joseph Smith, Jr. "saw
a fire towards heaven came near & nearer | saw a personage in the fire light complexion |
blue eyes a piece of white cloth drawn over | his shoulders his right arm bear after a wile |
a other person came to the side of the first |"
Liahona, October 1993, House of Revelation,
in subsection: Visions of the Father and the Son, in the Newel K. Whitney and Co. store, in
Kirtland, O., notes a sacred experience by Zebedee Coltrin: "a personage walked through
the room from east to west, and Joseph asked if we saw him. I saw him and suppose the
others did & Joseph answered that is Jesus, the Son of God, our elder brother. Afterward
Joseph told us to resume our former position in prayer (kneeling, with our hands uplifted)
which we did. Another person came through; he was surrounded as with a flame of fire .
. . The Prophet Joseph said this was the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. I saw Him" Also,
John Murdock stated: "I saw the form of a man, most lovely, the visage of his face was
sound and fair as the sun. His hair a bright silver grey, curled in most majestic form.
His eyes a keen penetrating blue, and the skin of his neck a most beautiful white
and he was covered from the neck to the feet with a loose garment, pure white,
whiter than any garment I have ever before seen. His countenance was most
penetrating, and yet most lovely. And while I was endeavoring to comprehend
the whole personage from head to feet it slipped from me, and the vision was
closed up. But it left on my mind the impression of love, for months, that I never
felt before to that degree" (John Murdock Journal, typescript,
BYU archives, page 13.}
The firsthand Nephite witnesses of Christ had similar profound experiences of great joy
and rejoicing; and it seems self evident, after Joseph Smith, Jr., received a complete
forgiveness of all of his sins, that part of the many other things that Jesus Christ did say
to Joseph Smith, Jr., during his First Vision, was the Savior's invitation to Joseph, to feel
the wounds in the body of the Messiah; and being embraced fully by His personal Love.

004:   SETH (the son of ADAM)

Family of Seth
(a Sons Ahman): (And God revealed himself unto Seth, and he rebelled
not, but offered an acceptable sacrifice like unto his brother Abel. Seth was a preacher
of righteousness, and spake and prophesied, and called upon all men everywhere to
repent. And faith was taught unto the children of men. And then began these men to call
upon the name of the Lord, and the Lord blessed them, and a book of remembrance was
kept in the which was recorded in the language of Adam, for it was given unto as many
as called upon God to write by the Spirit of inspiration, And by them their children were
taught to read and write, having a language which was pure and undefiled. Now this
same priesthood which was in the beginning shall be in the end of the world also. Now
this prophecy Adam spake as he was moved upon by the Holy Ghost. And a genealogy
was kept of the children of God. And this was the book of the generations of Adam . . .
Seth taught his son Enos in the ways of God. JST -

Marriage: [The History of the Development of Genealogical DNA
does not begin with the handed down Jewish Torah (Biblical) documents,
but with statements contained within the Pearl of Great Price. - Google Groups]

D&C 132: 38
  David also received many wives and concubines, and also Solomon
and Moses my servants, as also many others of my servants, from the
beginning
of
Creation
until this time; and in nothing did they sin save in those things which they
received not of me. [Research Note: This reference from God specifically implies that
Adam, who was at the beginning of Creation, received many wives and concubines,
which would have been given to Adam, by Eve; from some of their female posterity.
This would be consistent with Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ; she also being a spirit
daughter of God, the Eternal Father;
betrothed to God Ahman, by Angel Gabriel (Noah).
This would have directly involved the full consent of
Heavenly Mother; as the only means
provided, whereby she could obtain a future return to an eternal association with all of her
righteous and glorified mortal children. Prophets have taught that our immortal, celestial,
heavenly parents work together in a united manner, for the total comprehensive salvation
of the human family; brought to fulfillment through the blood Atonement of Jesus Christ.]

[Research Note: Plural Marriage "was believed in and practiced by the ancients"; noted
Brigham Young: Beneficial Effects of Polygamy (Journal of Discourses). As LDS President,
Brigham Young also stated "that if you desire with all your hearts to obtain the blessings
which Abraham obtained, you will be polygamists at least in your faith, or you will come
short of enjoying the salvation and the glory which Abraham has obtained. This is as true
as that God lives. . . . The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those
who enter into polygamy. Others attain unto a glory and may even be permitted to come
into the presence of the Father and the Son (in the Celestial Earth Kingdom; single, or in
a monogamously Temple sealed marriage), but they cannot (fully) reign as kings in glory,
because they had blessings offered unto them (to have power to save their own posterity),
and they refused to accept them."
The Power to Seal on Earth and in Heaven remained
actively upon the earth until the days of Elijah the Prophet, one of
Messengers with Keys.
Therefore, according to President Brigham Young, Jesus Christ had to have been married
to more than one wife, before he was exalted. Thus, the New Testament does not contain
a complete record of the Saints family relationships. Furthermore, Biblical society clearly
included plural marriage, as it was "believed in and practiced by the ancients",
(as three
years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared,
Enoch, and Methuselah; all just high priests, having the Holy Priesthood, after the Order
of the Son of God, with the residue of his, Adam's righteous posterity, into the green valley
of
Adam-ondi-Ahman); which society continued on through Shem, or Melchizedek, the son
of Noah; to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or Israel; down into the later Christian Gentile era.
This certainly indicates a tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records, when actually
compared mathematically, with the high number of global inhabitants, in pre-flood times.
Section 138, Vision of the Redemption of the Dead (Doctrine and Covenants 138): "Among
the great and mighty ones who were assembled in this vast congregation of the righteous
were Father Adam, the Ancient of Days and father of all, And our glorious Mother Eve,
with many of her faithful daughters who had lived through the (past Old Testament) ages
and worshiped the true and living God." Adam, or Michael, as the Holy Patriarchal Head
of the Human Family, by Right, has been delegated to hold the keys of the resurrection
of the dead, from Jesus Christ, or Jehovah; having previously passed through that order,
and continuously assists in bringing to pass the crowning of his posterity with immortality,
and eternal lives, under the direction of Son Ahman, the Messiah, Lord of Lords, and King
of Kings. President Joseph F. Smith validates tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records,: "I saw the hosts of the dead, both small and great." -- "And there were gathered
together in one place an innumerable company of the spirits of the just who had been
faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality;" "They were assembled
awaiting the advent of the Son of God into the spirit world, to declare their redemption
from the bands of death." (Thus, this would have been an innumerable company of spirits
having lived in Old Testament times, as "Their sleeping dust was to be restored unto its
perfect frame . . .") "While this vast multitude waited and conversed, rejoicing in the hour
of their deliverance from the chains of death, the Son of God appeared, declaring liberty
to the captives who had been faithful," Also, this multitude did not include all the wicked.
Specific mention is made of seeing and critically identifying additional Old Testament
personalities: Abel, the first martyr; Seth, one of the mighty ones; Noah, of the flood era;
Shem, the great high priest (Melchizedek); Abraham, the father of the faithful; Isaac,
Jacob; Moses, the great law-giver of Israel; Isaiah, who spoke of the Messiah;
Ezekiel;
Daniel; Elias, who appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration; and the prophet Malachi;
"All these and many more, even the prophets who dwelt among the Nephites and testified
of the coming of the Son of God, mingled in the vast assembly"; waiting for deliverance.
Furthermore, Jesus Christ mentions in
Matthew 7: 19–23, when asked why Moses permitted
divorce; Jesus Christ declared: "Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered
you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."
Isaiah 3 & 4 notes Zion and her daughters will be redeemed and cleansed in the coming
millennial day, by the restoration of polygamy: "And in that day, seven women shall
take hold of one man, saying: We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel;
only let us be called by thy name to take away our reproach"; re: 2 Nephi Chapter 14, as
mentioned in the Book of Mormon;
indicating modern day Zion is yet filthy, beforehand.
Since there was no divorce in the beginning, under the ancient patriarchal priesthood,
the unity of family associations would have greatly expanded the number of the children
living upon the earth, down to the time of the period of the administration of prophet Elijah.
Therefore, it is priesthood unrighteous dominion, in the cancellation of Temple Sealings,
or civil divorces, and not genetic DNA, that promotes extreme mental cruelty within lives
of separated posterity; that is the origination of adultery, fornication; all perverted forms
of biological disorientation of the children; a diminished

Letter to the Church, circa March 1834, Page 143)
"It must be the shedding of the blood of the Only Begotten to atone for man; for this
was the plan of redemption; and without the shedding of blood was no remission;
and as the sacrifice was instituted for a type, by which man was to discern the great
Sacrifice which God had prepared; to offer a sacrifice contrary to that, no faith could
be exercised, because redemption was not purchased in that way, nor the power of
atonement instituted after that order; consequently, Cain could have no faith: (because
Cain brought to the LORD an offering of the fruit of the ground, which was an intentional,
open blasphemy against the sacrifice of the Messiah) and whatsoever is not of faith is sin."

The Priesthood was first given to Adam. He obtained the First Presidency and held
the Keys of it. He obtained it in the creation before the world was formed, and they
remained on the earth until the Old Testament times of Elijah the Prophet; the last
of those prophets to hold the Keys of the Sealing Power of the Melchizedek Priesthood.
All the ancient prophets of the Old Testament times had the Melchizedek Priesthood.
The Order of the Melchizedek Priesthood was formerly called the High Priesthood of
the Holy Order of God, or the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God. It is
the Church of the Firstborn, or glorified Patriarchal Priesthood celestial heir members.
The sealed family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children.

in, or holding
Priesthood Keys in the Melchizedek Priesthood, as well as Bishops, who

that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he
that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. And all the people that heard
him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of dear John.

by the mouth of all the holy prophets since the world began, concerning the last days),
visited and gave promise that he should have a son, and his name should be John,
and he should be filled with the spirit of Elias; Which John I have have sent unto you,

The Science of Molecular Genealogy
suggests: "Molecular science can help genealogists uncover previously unknown family
relationships, verify or refute claims to ancestry, and shed light on questions that have
puzzled family historians for years." There are however, scientific limitations involved,
when considering Latter-day Saint, or Christian belief systems, based upon Bible text;
showing The Internal Consistency and Historical Reliability of the Biblical Genealogies.
Scott Ray Woodward (biologist)] extracted and typed DNA going back millions of years.
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His
EASTER resurrection, validated by LDS (D&C 138),
suggest serious reconsiderations on the actual value of DNA studies, extrapolated back
in temporal time. Foremost of all, What are resurrected bodies like?, declares they are
physical; and thus, no physical bodies upon the earth for molecular science to evaluate.
Moroni, who lived in the fifth century AD, additionally is a physically resurrected being.
So what is left of the ancient molecular past, to scientifically evaluate, are remains from
wicked societies, and social environments, destined for a future Telestial or Terrestrial
eternal existence. All these societies, except for Noah and his family relationships, had
disruptive global flood experiences, degrading and altering their molecular body purity
(as well as a stated corruption of all flesh, intermingled between animals and humans).
Additionally, all spirit is matter, but it is more refined and pure, such that it is infinitely
incapable of being measured by modern technological instruments; nor by DNA data.
God of course knows all of His spirit children, and knows from the beginnings of their
spiritual birth in heaven; thus He knows the past, present and future of the Universe,
knowing beforehand, the beginnings and ends of all the works of His own Creations.

In conclusion then, What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
The Book of Mormon is the greatest primary witness on the face of the earth to validate
the authenticity of the Ancient Biblical Record, with Moroni as the greatest key witness.
The Prophet Moroni testifies emphatically that the Theory of Evolution is so completely
false, as noted in Line upon Line: Moroni 10:3–5. Behold, I would exhort you, that when
ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would
remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation
of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your
hearts. . . . And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. . . .
The key element of this witness testimony concerning the real mortal existence of Adam,
and the factual evidence of the creation of the earth, and all the subsequent related things
thereto, is clearly stated within The Book of Ether. Moroni specifically abridged the record
of the Jaredites. Therefore, from a professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
he is an intimate, personally involved, eye-witness to this account of those twenty and four
plates which were found by the people of Limhi, which is called the Book of Ether. Moroni
mentions: "And as I suppose that the first part of this record, which speaks concerning the
creation of the world, and also of Adam, and an account from that time even to the great
tower, and whatsoever things transpired among the children of men until that time, is had
among the Jews-- Therefore I do not write those things which transpired from the days of
Adam until that time; but they are had upon the plates; and whoso findeth them, the same
will have power that he may get the full account" (as they are written in Adamic language).
Additionally
Legal Records, the Brass Plates, held in the originating possession of Laban,
contained not only the Jewish scriptures, but also Lehi's own genealogy back to Joseph
in Egypt. From a dispassionate, professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
this directly relates to the genealogical Truths taught in 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi, Moroni had
access to the Brass Plates of Laban and knew that those records came forth out of the City
of Jerusalem; and were handed down intact by the seed of originating Nephite father Lehi.
Nevertheless, the very false theory, or secular doctrine of Evolution is currently, and very
openly, and proudly; blatantly expounded upon, by open-minded "scientific" leadership,
from the sacred halls of learning, at
Brigham Young University. Yet, Nephi, son of Lehi,
had a vision of great significance, recorded in
1 Nephi 13:20–42: Plain and Precious Truths.
In particular, from a genealogical research standpoint, 1 Nephi 13: 23, the Gentiles, or us,
today, had a book, which an angel from the Throne of God in Heaven declared, stating:
Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew (collectively, the ancestry of the Jews).
"The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants
of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel (from Old Testament times);
and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record
like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many;
nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house
of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles."
Organic Evolution is false.

C.  Antiquities of the Jews - Book I - From the Creation to the Death of Isaac
     "Now when Noah had lived three hundred and fifty years after the Flood, and that
     all that time happily, he died, having lived the number of nine hundred and fifty
     years. But let no one, upon comparing the lives of the ancients with our lives, and
     with the few years which we now live, think that what we have said of them is false;
     or make the shortness of our lives at present an argument, that neither did they attain
     to so long a duration of life, for those ancients were beloved of God, and [lately]
     made by God himself; and because their food was then fitter for the prolongation
     of life, might well live so great a number of years: and besides, God afforded them
     a longer time of life on account of their virtue, and the good use they made of it in
     astronomical and geometrical discoveries, which would not have afforded the time
     of foretelling [the periods of the stars] unless they had lived six hundred years; for
     the
Great Year is completed in that interval. Now I have for witnesses to what I have
     said, all those that have written Antiquities, both among the Greeks and barbarians;
     for even Manetho, who wrote the Egyptian History, and Berosus, who collected the
    
Chaldean Monuments, and Mochus, and Hestieus, and besides these, Hieronymus
     the Egyptian, and those who composed the Phoenician History, agree to what I here
     say: Hesiod also, and Hecatseus, Hellanicus, and Acusilaus; and besides these,
     Ephorus and Nicolaus relate that the ancients lived a thousand years. But as to these
     matters, let every one look upon them as he thinks fit."  [Research Note: One Day in
     the process of Creation, to God Ahman on
Kolob, is equivalent to 1,000 earth years.
     Berossus, or Berosus, circa 3rd century B. C., reckoned time in intervals of 60, 600,
     and 3600 years: a base-60 (
Sexagesimal system); with 5 as one of the prime numbers.
     The number of seconds in minute, the number of minutes in an hour is also base-60.
     Grammar and Alphabet of the Egyptian Language, circa July–circa November 1835,
     has characters arranged into five degrees; being arranged differently in each part.
     Mathematics/Astronomy - Wikiversity, shows that Altitude (Alt), sometimes referred
     to as elevation, is the angle between the object and the observer's local horizon. It
     is expressed as an angle between 0 degrees to 90 degrees; and 5 divides into 90
     degrees = 18 times; and that 6 divides into 90 degrees = 15 times. Now, the
Behenian
     fixed stars are a selection of fifteen stars considered especially useful for magical
     applications in the medieval astrology of Europe and the Arab world; each is also
     connected with a gemstone and plant; and when a planet was within six degrees
     of an associated star, this influence was thought to be particularly strong. However,
    
Facsimile 2,  from the Book of Abraham, notes Fig. 3. Is made to represent God,
     sitting upon his throne, clothed with power and authority; with a crown of eternal
     light upon his head, representing also the grand Key-words of the Holy Priesthood,
     as revealed to Adam in the Garden of Eden, as also to Seth, Noah, Melchizedek,
     Abraham, and all to whom the Priesthood was revealed (listed in Patriarchal Order).
     There were six days given in the scriptures for the creation of this earth by
Elohim:
     The heads of the Gods, or, the head one of the Gods, appointed one God for us.
     And, the Sun, borrows its light from Kolob through the medium of Kae-e-vanrash,
     which is the grand Key, or in other words, the governing power, which governs
     fifteen (15) other fixed planets or stars, as also Floeese or the Moon, the Earth,
     and the Sun in their annual revolutions. The Ancient Jewish Urim and Thummim
     had the names of the twelve (12) Tribes engraved on the breastpiece, to which
     were added those of the three
covenant Patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob;
     together with the word shevet ("tribe") so as to encompass the whole alphabet;
     thus representing the (3) Patriarchal High Priest Heads of the full House of Israel;
     and the Priestly Breastplate, having individual Tribal gemstones, or The Jewels;
     linguistically together in oracle revelations, mathematically and astronomically.
     A full shadow of the Earth on the Moon has an apparent radius of curvature equal
     to the difference between the apparent radii of the Earth and the Sun as seen from
     the Moon. This radius can be seen to be equal to 0.75 degree, from which (with the
     solar apparent radius 0.25 degree) we get an Earth apparent radius of 1 degree.
     This yields for the Earth-Moon distance 60 Earth radii of 384,000 km. This procedure
     was first used by Aristarchus of Samos and Hipparchus; and later, Ptolemy's works.

005:   ENOS (the son of SETH)

Family of Enos: (Enos was a preacher of righteousness, and spake and prophesied,
and called upon all men everywhere to repent. And faith was taught unto the children
of men. And then began these men to call upon the name of the Lord, and the Lord
blessed them, and a book of remembrance was kept in the which was recorded
in the language of Adam, for it was given unto as many as called upon God to write
by the Spirit of inspiration, And by them their children were taught to read and write,
having a language which was pure and undefiled. Now this same priesthood which
was in the beginning shall be in the end of the world also. Now this prophecy Adam
spake as he was moved upon by the Holy Ghost. And a genealogy was kept of the
children of God. And this was the book of the generations of Adam . . .
And the children of men were numerous upon all the face of the (undivided) land.
And in those days, Satan had great dominion among men and raged in their hearts,
and from thenceforth came wars and bloodshed. And a man's hand was against his
own brother in administering death because of secret works, seeking for power. . . .
And Enos and the residue of the people of God came out from the land which was
called Shulon and dwelt in a land of promise, which he called after his own son,
whom he had named Cainan. JST -

Marriage:

D&C 132: 38
  David also received many wives and concubines, and also Solomon
and Moses my servants, as also many others of my servants, from the
beginning
of
Creation
until this time; and in nothing did they sin save in those things which they
received not of me. [Research Note: This reference from God specifically implies that
Adam, who was at the beginning of Creation, received many wives and concubines,
which would have been given to Adam, by Eve; from some of their female posterity.
This would be consistent with Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ; she also being a spirit
daughter of God, the Eternal Father;
betrothed to God Ahman, by Angel Gabriel (Noah).
This would have directly involved the full consent of
Heavenly Mother; as the only means
provided, whereby she could obtain a future return to an eternal association with all of her
righteous and glorified mortal children. Prophets have taught that our immortal, celestial,
heavenly parents work together in a united manner, for the total comprehensive salvation
of the human family; brought to fulfillment through the blood Atonement of Jesus Christ.]

[Research Note: Plural Marriage "was believed in and practiced by the ancients"; noted
Brigham Young: Beneficial Effects of Polygamy (Journal of Discourses). As LDS President,
Brigham Young also stated "that if you desire with all your hearts to obtain the blessings
which Abraham obtained, you will be polygamists at least in your faith, or you will come
short of enjoying the salvation and the glory which Abraham has obtained. This is as true
as that God lives. . . . The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those
who enter into polygamy. Others attain unto a glory and may even be permitted to come
into the presence of the Father and the Son (in the Celestial Earth Kingdom; single, or in
a monogamously Temple sealed marriage), but they cannot (fully) reign as kings in glory,
because they had blessings offered unto them (to have power to save their own posterity),
and they refused to accept them."
The Power to Seal on Earth and in Heaven remained
actively upon the earth until the days of Elijah the Prophet, one of
Messengers with Keys.
Therefore, according to President Brigham Young, Jesus Christ had to have been married
to more than one wife, before he was exalted. Thus, the New Testament does not contain
a complete record of the Saints family relationships. Furthermore, Biblical society clearly
included plural marriage, as it was "believed in and practiced by the ancients",
(as three
years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared,
Enoch, and Methuselah; all just high priests, having the Holy Priesthood, after the Order
of the Son of God, with the residue of his, Adam's righteous posterity, into the green valley
of
Adam-ondi-Ahman); which society continued on through Shem, or Melchizedek, the son
of Noah; to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or Israel; down into the later Christian Gentile era.
This certainly indicates a tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records, when actually
compared mathematically, with the high number of global inhabitants, in pre-flood times.
Section 138, Vision of the Redemption of the Dead (Doctrine and Covenants 138): "Among
the great and mighty ones who were assembled in this vast congregation of the righteous
were Father Adam, the Ancient of Days and father of all, And our glorious Mother Eve,
with many of her faithful daughters who had lived through the (past Old Testament) ages
and worshiped the true and living God." Adam, or Michael, as the Holy Patriarchal Head
of the Human Family, by Right, has been delegated to hold the keys of the resurrection
of the dead, from Jesus Christ, or Jehovah; having previously passed through that order,
and continuously assists in bringing to pass the crowning of his posterity with immortality,
and eternal lives, under the direction of Son Ahman, the Messiah, Lord of Lords, and King
of Kings. President Joseph F. Smith validates tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records,: "I saw the hosts of the dead, both small and great." -- "And there were gathered
together in one place an innumerable company of the spirits of the just who had been
faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality;" "They were assembled
awaiting the advent of the Son of God into the spirit world, to declare their redemption
from the bands of death." (Thus, this would have been an innumerable company of spirits
having lived in Old Testament times, as "Their sleeping dust was to be restored unto its
perfect frame . . .") "While this vast multitude waited and conversed, rejoicing in the hour
of their deliverance from the chains of death, the Son of God appeared, declaring liberty
to the captives who had been faithful," Also, this multitude did not include all the wicked.
Specific mention is made of seeing and critically identifying additional Old Testament
personalities: Abel, the first martyr; Seth, one of the mighty ones; Noah, of the flood era;
Shem, the great high priest (Melchizedek); Abraham, the father of the faithful; Isaac,
Jacob; Moses, the great law-giver of Israel; Isaiah, who spoke of the Messiah;
Ezekiel;
Daniel; Elias, who appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration; and the prophet Malachi;
"All these and many more, even the prophets who dwelt among the Nephites and testified
of the coming of the Son of God, mingled in the vast assembly"; waiting for deliverance.
Furthermore, Jesus Christ mentions in
Matthew 7: 19–23, when asked why Moses permitted
divorce; Jesus Christ declared: "Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered
you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."
Isaiah 3 & 4 notes Zion and her daughters will be redeemed and cleansed in the coming
millennial day, by the restoration of polygamy: "And in that day, seven women shall
take hold of one man, saying: We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel;
only let us be called by thy name to take away our reproach"; re: 2 Nephi Chapter 14, as
mentioned in the Book of Mormon;
indicating modern day Zion is yet filthy, beforehand.
Since there was no divorce in the beginning, under the ancient patriarchal priesthood,
the unity of family associations would have greatly expanded the number of the children
living upon the earth, down to the time of the period of the administration of prophet Elijah.
Therefore, it is priesthood unrighteous dominion, in the cancellation of Temple Sealings,
or civil divorces, and not genetic DNA, that promotes extreme mental cruelty within lives
of separated posterity; that is the origination of adultery, fornication; all perverted forms
of biological disorientation of the children; a diminished
World Population Since Creation.]

The Priesthood was first given to Adam. He obtained the First Presidency and held
the Keys of it. He obtained it in the creation before the world was formed, and they
remained on the earth until the Old Testament times of Elijah the Prophet; the last
of those prophets to hold the Keys of the Sealing Power of the Melchizedek Priesthood.
All the ancient prophets of the Old Testament times had the Melchizedek Priesthood.
The Order of the Melchizedek Priesthood was formerly called the High Priesthood of
the Holy Order of God, or the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God. It is
the Church of the Firstborn, or glorified Patriarchal Priesthood celestial heir members.
The sealed family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children.
Old Testament Biblical Records include statements concerning High Priests presiding
in, or holding
Priesthood Keys in the Melchizedek Priesthood, as well as Bishops, who
hold the mighty sacred keys over
The Aaronic Priesthood: The Ministering of Angels.
Priesthood of Aaron restoration was performed by John the Baptist. The
testimony of
Jesus Christ was: This is he, of whom it is written, behold, I send my messenger before
thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those
that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he
that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. And all the people that heard
him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of dear John.
Thus, we

Also: Listen to the Voice of Jesus Christ, your Lord, your God, and your Redeemer, whose
word is quick and powerful. And also John the son of Zacharias, which Zacharias he (Elias,
to whom I have committed the keys of bringing to pass the restoration of all things spoken
by the mouth of all the holy prophets since the world began, concerning the last days),
visited and gave promise that he should have a son, and his name should be John,
and he should be filled with the spirit of Elias; Which John I have have sent unto you,
my servants, Joseph Smith, Jun., and Oliver Cowdery, to ordain you unto the first priest-
hood, which you have received, that you might be called and ordained even as Aaron.

years and four months, by the hand of Adam.

What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?

The Science of Molecular Genealogy
suggests: "Molecular science can help genealogists uncover previously unknown family
relationships, verify or refute claims to ancestry, and shed light on questions that have
puzzled family historians for years." There are however, scientific limitations involved,
when considering Latter-day Saint, or Christian belief systems, based upon Bible text;
showing The Internal Consistency and Historical Reliability of the Biblical Genealogies.
Scott Ray Woodward (biologist)] extracted and typed DNA going back millions of years.
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His
EASTER resurrection, validated by LDS (D&C 138),
suggest serious reconsiderations on the actual value of DNA studies, extrapolated back
in temporal time. Foremost of all, What are resurrected bodies like?, declares they are
physical; and thus, no physical bodies upon the earth for molecular science to evaluate.
Moroni, who lived in the fifth century AD, additionally is a physically resurrected being.
So what is left of the ancient molecular past, to scientifically evaluate, are remains from
wicked societies, and social environments, destined for a future Telestial or Terrestrial
eternal existence. All these societies, except for Noah and his family relationships, had
disruptive global flood experiences, degrading and altering their molecular body purity
(as well as a stated corruption of all flesh, intermingled between animals and humans).
Additionally, all spirit is matter, but it is more refined and pure, such that it is infinitely
incapable of being measured by modern technological instruments; nor by DNA data.
God of course knows all of His spirit children, and knows from the beginnings of their
spiritual birth in heaven; thus He knows the past, present and future of the Universe,
knowing beforehand, the beginnings and ends of all the works of His own Creations.

In conclusion then, What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
The Book of Mormon is the greatest primary witness on the face of the earth to validate
the authenticity of the Ancient Biblical Record, with Moroni as the greatest key witness.
The Prophet Moroni testifies emphatically that the Theory of Evolution is so completely
false, as noted in Line upon Line: Moroni 10:3–5. Behold, I would exhort you, that when
ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would
remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation
of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your
hearts. . . . And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. . . .
The key element of this witness testimony concerning the real mortal existence of Adam,
and the factual evidence of the creation of the earth, and all the subsequent related things
thereto, is clearly stated within The Book of Ether. Moroni specifically abridged the record
of the Jaredites. Therefore, from a professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
he is an intimate, personally involved, eye-witness to this account of those twenty and four
plates which were found by the people of Limhi, which is called the Book of Ether. Moroni
mentions: "And as I suppose that the first part of this record, which speaks concerning the
creation of the world, and also of Adam, and an account from that time even to the great
tower, and whatsoever things transpired among the children of men until that time, is had
among the Jews-- Therefore I do not write those things which transpired from the days of
Adam until that time; but they are had upon the plates; and whoso findeth them, the same
will have power that he may get the full account" (as they are written in Adamic language).
Additionally
Legal Records, the Brass Plates, held in the originating possession of Laban,
contained not only the Jewish scriptures, but also Lehi's own genealogy back to Joseph
in Egypt. From a dispassionate, professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
this directly relates to the genealogical Truths taught in 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi, Moroni had
access to the Brass Plates of Laban and knew that those records came forth out of the City
of Jerusalem; and were handed down intact by the seed of originating Nephite father Lehi.
Nevertheless, the very false theory, or secular doctrine of Evolution is currently, and very
openly, and proudly; blatantly expounded upon, by open-minded "scientific" leadership,
from the sacred halls of learning, at
Brigham Young University. Yet, Nephi, son of Lehi,
had a vision of great significance, recorded in
1 Nephi 13:20–42: Plain and Precious Truths.
In particular, from a genealogical research standpoint, 1 Nephi 13: 23, the Gentiles, or us,
today, had a book, which an angel from the Throne of God in Heaven declared, stating:
Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew (collectively, the ancestry of the Jews).
"The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants
of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel (from Old Testament times);
and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record
like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many;
nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house
of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles."
Organic Evolution is false.

006:   CAINAN - KENAN (the son of ENOS)

Family of Cainan - Kenan: (Cainan - Kenan was a preacher of righteousness,
and spake and prophesied, and called upon all men everywhere to repent.
And faith was taught unto the children of men. And then began these men
to call upon the name of the Lord, and the Lord blessed them, and a book
of remembrance was kept in the which was recorded in the language of Adam,
for it was given unto as many as called upon God to write by the Spirit of inspiration,
And by them their children were taught to read and write, having a language which
was pure and undefiled. Now this same priesthood which was in the beginning shall
be in the end of the world also. Now this prophecy Adam spake as he was moved
upon by the Holy Ghost. And a genealogy was kept of the children of God. And this
was the book of the generations of Adam . . . JST -
Inspired Version)

Marriage:
[Gilbert Burrington (author): Notes on Table I. (o); on page 5, that Syneellus,
in his Chronograph, p. 11, attributes a wife to Cainan called Maleth.]

D&C 132: 38
  David also received many wives and concubines, and also Solomon
and Moses my servants, as also many others of my servants, from the beginning
of
Creation
until this time; and in nothing did they sin save in those things which they
received not of me. [Research Note: This reference from God specifically implies that
Adam, who was at the beginning of Creation, received many wives and concubines,
which would have been given to Adam, by Eve; from some of their female posterity.
This would be consistent with Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ; she also being a spirit
daughter of God, the Eternal Father;
betrothed to God Ahman, by Angel Gabriel (Noah).
This would have directly involved the full consent of
Heavenly Mother; as the only means
provided, whereby she could obtain a future return to an eternal association with all of her
righteous and glorified mortal children. Prophets have taught that our immortal, celestial,
heavenly parents work together in a united manner, for the total comprehensive salvation
of the human family; brought to fulfillment through the blood Atonement of Jesus Christ.]

[Research Note: Plural Marriage "was believed in and practiced by the ancients"; noted
Brigham Young: Beneficial Effects of Polygamy (Journal of Discourses). As LDS President,
Brigham Young also stated "that if you desire with all your hearts to obtain the blessings
which Abraham obtained, you will be polygamists at least in your faith, or you will come
short of enjoying the salvation and the glory which Abraham has obtained. This is as true
as that God lives. . . . The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those
who enter into polygamy. Others attain unto a glory and may even be permitted to come
into the presence of the Father and the Son (in the Celestial Earth Kingdom; single, or in
a monogamously Temple sealed marriage), but they cannot (fully) reign as kings in glory,
because they had blessings offered unto them (to have power to save their own posterity),
and they refused to accept them."
The Power to Seal on Earth and in Heaven remained
actively upon the earth until the days of Elijah the Prophet, one of
Messengers with Keys.
Therefore, according to President Brigham Young, Jesus Christ had to have been married
to more than one wife, before he was exalted. Thus, the New Testament does not contain
a complete record of the Saints family relationships. Furthermore, Biblical society clearly
included plural marriage, as it was "believed in and practiced by the ancients",
(as three
years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared,
Enoch, and Methuselah; all just high priests, having the Holy Priesthood, after the Order
of the Son of God, with the residue of his, Adam's righteous posterity, into the green valley
of
Adam-ondi-Ahman); which society continued on through Shem, or Melchizedek, the son
of Noah; to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or Israel; down into the later Christian Gentile era.
This certainly indicates a tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records, when actually
compared mathematically, with the high number of global inhabitants, in pre-flood times.
Section 138, Vision of the Redemption of the Dead (Doctrine and Covenants 138): "Among
the great and mighty ones who were assembled in this vast congregation of the righteous
were Father Adam, the Ancient of Days and father of all, And our glorious Mother Eve,
with many of her faithful daughters who had lived through the (past Old Testament) ages
and worshiped the true and living God." Adam, or Michael, as the Holy Patriarchal Head
of the Human Family, by Right, has been delegated to hold the keys of the resurrection
of the dead, from Jesus Christ, or Jehovah; having previously passed through that order,
and continuously assists in bringing to pass the crowning of his posterity with immortality,
and eternal lives, under the direction of Son Ahman, the Messiah, Lord of Lords, and King
of Kings. President Joseph F. Smith validates tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records,: "I saw the hosts of the dead, both small and great." -- "And there were gathered
together in one place an innumerable company of the spirits of the just who had been
faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality;" "They were assembled
awaiting the advent of the Son of God into the spirit world, to declare their redemption
from the bands of death." (Thus, this would have been an innumerable company of spirits
having lived in Old Testament times, as "Their sleeping dust was to be restored unto its
perfect frame . . .") "While this vast multitude waited and conversed, rejoicing in the hour
of their deliverance from the chains of death, the Son of God appeared, declaring liberty
to the captives who had been faithful," Also, this multitude did not include all the wicked.
Specific mention is made of seeing and critically identifying additional Old Testament
personalities: Abel, the first martyr; Seth, one of the mighty ones; Noah, of the flood era;
Shem, the great high priest (Melchizedek); Abraham, the father of the faithful; Isaac,
Jacob; Moses, the great law-giver of Israel; Isaiah, who spoke of the Messiah;
Ezekiel;
Daniel; Elias, who appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration; and the prophet Malachi;
"All these and many more, even the prophets who dwelt among the Nephites and testified
of the coming of the Son of God, mingled in the vast assembly"; waiting for deliverance.
Furthermore, Jesus Christ mentions in
Matthew 7: 19–23, when asked why Moses permitted
divorce; Jesus Christ declared: "Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered
you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."
Isaiah 3 & 4 notes Zion and her daughters will be redeemed and cleansed in the coming
millennial day, by the restoration of polygamy: "And in that day, seven women shall
take hold of one man, saying: We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel;
only let us be called by thy name to take away our reproach"; re: 2 Nephi Chapter 14, as
mentioned in the Book of Mormon;
indicating modern day Zion is yet filthy, beforehand.
Since there was no divorce in the beginning, under the ancient patriarchal priesthood,
the unity of family associations would have greatly expanded the number of the children
living upon the earth, down to the time of the period of the administration of prophet Elijah.
Therefore, it is priesthood unrighteous dominion, in the cancellation of Temple Sealings,
or civil divorces, and not genetic DNA, that promotes extreme mental cruelty within lives
of separated posterity; that is the origination of adultery, fornication; all perverted forms
of biological disorientation of the children; a diminished

The Priesthood was first given to Adam. He obtained the First Presidency and held
the Keys of it. He obtained it in the creation before the world was formed, and they
remained on the earth until the Old Testament times of Elijah the Prophet; the last
of those prophets to hold the Keys of the Sealing Power of the Melchizedek Priesthood.
All the ancient prophets of the Old Testament times had the Melchizedek Priesthood.
The Order of the Melchizedek Priesthood was formerly called the High Priesthood of
the Holy Order of God, or the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God. It is
the Church of the Firstborn, or glorified Patriarchal Priesthood celestial heir members.
The sealed family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children.
Old Testament Biblical Records include statements concerning High Priests presiding
in, or holding
Priesthood Keys in the Melchizedek Priesthood, as well as Bishops, who
hold the mighty sacred keys over
The Aaronic Priesthood: The Ministering of Angels.
Priesthood of Aaron restoration was performed by John the Baptist. The
testimony of
Jesus Christ was: This is he, of whom it is written, behold, I send my messenger before
thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those
that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he
that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. And all the people that heard
him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of dear John.
Thus, we
carefully listen to Andrea Bocelli - Angels We Have Heard On High - YouTube™.
Also: Listen to the Voice of Jesus Christ, your Lord, your God, and your Redeemer, whose
word is quick and powerful. And also John the son of Zacharias, which Zacharias he (Elias,
to whom I have committed the keys of bringing to pass the restoration of all things spoken
by the mouth of all the holy prophets since the world began, concerning the last days),
visited and gave promise that he should have a son, and his name should be John,
and he should be filled with the spirit of Elias; Which John I have have sent unto you,
my servants, Joseph Smith, Jun., and Oliver Cowdery, to ordain you unto the first priest-
hood, which you have received, that you might be called and ordained even as Aaron.

What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?

The Science of Molecular Genealogy
suggests: "Molecular science can help genealogists uncover previously unknown family

puzzled family historians for years." There are however, scientific limitations involved,
when considering Latter-day Saint, or Christian belief systems, based upon Bible text;
showing The Internal Consistency and Historical Reliability of the Biblical Genealogies.
Scott Ray Woodward (biologist)] extracted and typed DNA going back millions of years.
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His
EASTER resurrection, validated by LDS (D&C 138),
suggest serious reconsiderations on the actual value of DNA studies, extrapolated back
in temporal time. Foremost of all, What are resurrected bodies like?, declares they are
physical; and thus, no physical bodies upon the earth for molecular science to evaluate.
Moroni, who lived in the fifth century AD, additionally is a physically resurrected being.
So what is left of the ancient molecular past, to scientifically evaluate, are remains from
wicked societies, and social environments, destined for a future Telestial or Terrestrial
eternal existence. All these societies, except for Noah and his family relationships, had
disruptive global flood experiences, degrading and altering their molecular body purity
(as well as a stated corruption of all flesh, intermingled between animals and humans).
Additionally, all spirit is matter, but it is more refined and pure, such that it is infinitely
incapable of being measured by modern technological instruments; nor by DNA data.
God of course knows all of His spirit children, and knows from the beginnings of their
spiritual birth in heaven; thus He knows the past, present and future of the Universe,
knowing beforehand, the beginnings and ends of all the works of His own Creations.

In conclusion then, What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
The Book of Mormon is the greatest primary witness on the face of the earth to validate
the authenticity of the Ancient Biblical Record, with Moroni as the greatest key witness.
The Prophet Moroni testifies emphatically that the Theory of Evolution is so completely
false, as noted in Line upon Line: Moroni 10:3–5. Behold, I would exhort you, that when
ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would
remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation
of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your
hearts. . . . And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. . . .
The key element of this witness testimony concerning the real mortal existence of Adam,
and the factual evidence of the creation of the earth, and all the subsequent related things
thereto, is clearly stated within The Book of Ether. Moroni specifically abridged the record
of the Jaredites. Therefore, from a professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
he is an intimate, personally involved, eye-witness to this account of those twenty and four
plates which were found by the people of Limhi, which is called the Book of Ether. Moroni
mentions: "And as I suppose that the first part of this record, which speaks concerning the
creation of the world, and also of Adam, and an account from that time even to the great
tower, and whatsoever things transpired among the children of men until that time, is had
among the Jews-- Therefore I do not write those things which transpired from the days of
Adam until that time; but they are had upon the plates; and whoso findeth them, the same
will have power that he may get the full account" (as they are written in Adamic language).
Additionally
Legal Records, the Brass Plates, held in the originating possession of Laban,
contained not only the Jewish scriptures, but also Lehi's own genealogy back to Joseph
in Egypt. From a dispassionate, professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
this directly relates to the genealogical Truths taught in 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi, Moroni had
access to the Brass Plates of Laban and knew that those records came forth out of the City
of Jerusalem; and were handed down intact by the seed of originating Nephite father Lehi.
Nevertheless, the very false theory, or secular doctrine of Evolution is currently, and very
openly, and proudly; blatantly expounded upon, by open-minded "scientific" leadership,
from the sacred halls of learning, at
Brigham Young University. Yet, Nephi, son of Lehi,
had a vision of great significance, recorded in
1 Nephi 13:20–42: Plain and Precious Truths.
In particular, from a genealogical research standpoint, 1 Nephi 13: 23, the Gentiles, or us,
today, had a book, which an angel from the Throne of God in Heaven declared, stating:
Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew (collectively, the ancestry of the Jews).
"The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants
of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel (from Old Testament times);
and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record
like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many;
nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house
of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles."
Organic Evolution is false.

     with the few years which we now live, think that what we have said of them is false;
     or make the shortness of our lives at present an argument, that neither did they attain
     to so long a duration of life, for those ancients were beloved of God, and [lately]
     made by God himself; and because their food was then fitter for the prolongation
     of life, might well live so great a number of years: and besides, God afforded them
     a longer time of life on account of their virtue, and the good use they made of it in

007:   MAHALALEEL (the son of CAINAN - KENAN)

Family of Mahalaleel: (Mahalaleel was a preacher of righteousness,
and spake and prophesied, and called upon all men everywhere to repent.
And faith was taught unto the children of men. And then began these men
to call upon the name of the Lord, and the Lord blessed them, and a book
of remembrance was kept in the which was recorded in the language of Adam,
for it was given unto as many as called upon God to write by the Spirit of inspiration,
And by them their children were taught to read and write, having a language which
was pure and undefiled. Now this same priesthood which was in the beginning shall
be in the end of the world also. Now this prophecy Adam spake as he was moved
upon by the Holy Ghost. And a genealogy was kept of the children of God. And this
was the book of the generations of Adam . . . JST -
Inspired Version)

Marriage:

D&C 132: 38
  David also received many wives and concubines, and also Solomon
and Moses my servants, as also many others of my servants, from the
beginning
of
Creation
until this time; and in nothing did they sin save in those things which they
received not of me. [Research Note: This reference from God specifically implies that
Adam, who was at the beginning of Creation, received many wives and concubines,
which would have been given to Adam, by Eve; from some of their female posterity.
This would be consistent with Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ; she also being a spirit
daughter of God, the Eternal Father;
betrothed to God Ahman, by Angel Gabriel (Noah).
This would have directly involved the full consent of
Heavenly Mother; as the only means
provided, whereby she could obtain a future return to an eternal association with all of her
righteous and glorified mortal children. Prophets have taught that our immortal, celestial,
heavenly parents work together in a united manner, for the total comprehensive salvation
of the human family; brought to fulfillment through the blood Atonement of Jesus Christ.]

[Research Note: Plural Marriage "was believed in and practiced by the ancients"; noted
Brigham Young: Beneficial Effects of Polygamy (Journal of Discourses). As LDS President,
Brigham Young also stated "that if you desire with all your hearts to obtain the blessings
which Abraham obtained, you will be polygamists at least in your faith, or you will come
short of enjoying the salvation and the glory which Abraham has obtained. This is as true
as that God lives. . . . The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those
who enter into polygamy. Others attain unto a glory and may even be permitted to come
into the presence of the Father and the Son (in the Celestial Earth Kingdom; single, or in
a monogamously Temple sealed marriage), but they cannot (fully) reign as kings in glory,
because they had blessings offered unto them (to have power to save their own posterity),
and they refused to accept them."
The Power to Seal on Earth and in Heaven remained
actively upon the earth until the days of Elijah the Prophet, one of
Messengers with Keys.
Therefore, according to President Brigham Young, Jesus Christ had to have been married
to more than one wife, before he was exalted. Thus, the New Testament does not contain
a complete record of the Saints family relationships. Furthermore, Biblical society clearly
included plural marriage, as it was "believed in and practiced by the ancients",
(as three
years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared,
Enoch, and Methuselah; all just high priests, having the Holy Priesthood, after the Order
of the Son of God, with the residue of his, Adam's righteous posterity, into the green valley
of
Adam-ondi-Ahman); which society continued on through Shem, or Melchizedek, the son
of Noah; to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or Israel; down into the later Christian Gentile era.
This certainly indicates a tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records, when actually
compared mathematically, with the high number of global inhabitants, in pre-flood times.
Section 138, Vision of the Redemption of the Dead (Doctrine and Covenants 138): "Among
the great and mighty ones who were assembled in this vast congregation of the righteous
were Father Adam, the Ancient of Days and father of all, And our glorious Mother Eve,
with many of her faithful daughters who had lived through the (past Old Testament) ages
and worshiped the true and living God." Adam, or Michael, as the Holy Patriarchal Head
of the Human Family, by Right, has been delegated to hold the keys of the resurrection
of the dead, from Jesus Christ, or Jehovah; having previously passed through that order,
and continuously assists in bringing to pass the crowning of his posterity with immortality,
and eternal lives, under the direction of Son Ahman, the Messiah, Lord of Lords, and King
of Kings. President Joseph F. Smith validates tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records,: "I saw the hosts of the dead, both small and great." -- "And there were gathered
together in one place an innumerable company of the spirits of the just who had been
faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality;" "They were assembled
awaiting the advent of the Son of God into the spirit world, to declare their redemption
from the bands of death." (Thus, this would have been an innumerable company of spirits
having lived in Old Testament times, as "Their sleeping dust was to be restored unto its
perfect frame . . .") "While this vast multitude waited and conversed, rejoicing in the hour
of their deliverance from the chains of death, the Son of God appeared, declaring liberty
to the captives who had been faithful," Also, this multitude did not include all the wicked.
Specific mention is made of seeing and critically identifying additional Old Testament
personalities: Abel, the first martyr; Seth, one of the mighty ones; Noah, of the flood era;
Shem, the great high priest (Melchizedek); Abraham, the father of the faithful; Isaac,
Jacob; Moses, the great law-giver of Israel; Isaiah, who spoke of the Messiah;
Ezekiel;
Daniel; Elias, who appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration; and the prophet Malachi;
"All these and many more, even the prophets who dwelt among the Nephites and testified
of the coming of the Son of God, mingled in the vast assembly"; waiting for deliverance.
Furthermore, Jesus Christ mentions in
Matthew 7: 19–23, when asked why Moses permitted
divorce; Jesus Christ declared: "Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered
you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."
Isaiah 3 & 4 notes Zion and her daughters will be redeemed and cleansed in the coming
millennial day, by the restoration of polygamy: "And in that day, seven women shall
take hold of one man, saying: We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel;
only let us be called by thy name to take away our reproach"; re: 2 Nephi Chapter 14, as
mentioned in the Book of Mormon;
indicating modern day Zion is yet filthy, beforehand.
Since there was no divorce in the beginning, under the ancient patriarchal priesthood,
the unity of family associations would have greatly expanded the number of the children
living upon the earth, down to the time of the period of the administration of prophet Elijah.
Therefore, it is priesthood unrighteous dominion, in the cancellation of Temple Sealings,
or civil divorces, and not genetic DNA, that promotes extreme mental cruelty within lives
of separated posterity; that is the origination of adultery, fornication; all perverted forms
of biological disorientation of the children; a diminished

The Priesthood was first given to Adam. He obtained the First Presidency and held
the Keys of it. He obtained it in the creation before the world was formed, and they
remained on the earth until the Old Testament times of Elijah the Prophet; the last
of those prophets to hold the Keys of the Sealing Power of the Melchizedek Priesthood.
All the ancient prophets of the Old Testament times had the Melchizedek Priesthood.
The Order of the Melchizedek Priesthood was formerly called the High Priesthood of
the Holy Order of God, or the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God. It is
the Church of the Firstborn, or glorified Patriarchal Priesthood celestial heir members.
The sealed family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children.
Old Testament Biblical Records include statements concerning High Priests presiding
in, or holding
Priesthood Keys in the Melchizedek Priesthood, as well as Bishops, who
hold the mighty sacred keys over
The Aaronic Priesthood: The Ministering of Angels.
Priesthood of Aaron restoration was performed by John the Baptist. The
testimony of
Jesus Christ was: This is he, of whom it is written, behold, I send my messenger before
thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those
that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he
that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. And all the people that heard
him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of dear John.
Thus, we
carefully listen to Andrea Bocelli - Angels We Have Heard On High - YouTube™.
Also: Listen to the Voice of Jesus Christ, your Lord, your God, and your Redeemer, whose
word is quick and powerful. And also John the son of Zacharias, which Zacharias he (Elias,
to whom I have committed the keys of bringing to pass the restoration of all things spoken
by the mouth of all the holy prophets since the world began, concerning the last days),
visited and gave promise that he should have a son, and his name should be John,
and he should be filled with the spirit of Elias; Which John I have have sent unto you,
my servants, Joseph Smith, Jun., and Oliver Cowdery, to ordain you unto the first priest-
hood, which you have received, that you might be called and ordained even as Aaron.


D&C 107: 46  Mahalaleel was four hundred and ninety-six years and seven
days old when he was ordained by the hand of Adam, who also blessed him.
D&C 107: 53  Mahalaleel was a High Priest D&C 107: 3 in the Holy Priesthood,
after the Order of the Son of God.

What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?

The Science of Molecular Genealogy
suggests: "Molecular science can help genealogists uncover previously unknown family
relationships, verify or refute claims to ancestry, and shed light on questions that have
puzzled family historians for years." There are however, scientific limitations involved,
when considering Latter-day Saint, or Christian belief systems, based upon Bible text;
showing The Internal Consistency and Historical Reliability of the Biblical Genealogies.
Scott Ray Woodward (biologist)] extracted and typed DNA going back millions of years.
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His
EASTER resurrection, validated by LDS (D&C 138),
suggest serious reconsiderations on the actual value of DNA studies, extrapolated back
in temporal time. Foremost of all, What are resurrected bodies like?, declares they are
physical; and thus, no physical bodies upon the earth for molecular science to evaluate.
Moroni, who lived in the fifth century AD, additionally is a physically resurrected being.
So what is left of the ancient molecular past, to scientifically evaluate, are remains from
wicked societies, and social environments, destined for a future Telestial or Terrestrial
eternal existence. All these societies, except for Noah and his family relationships, had
disruptive global flood experiences, degrading and altering their molecular body purity
(as well as a stated corruption of all flesh, intermingled between animals and humans).
Additionally, all spirit is matter, but it is more refined and pure, such that it is infinitely
incapable of being measured by modern technological instruments; nor by DNA data.
God of course knows all of His spirit children, and knows from the beginnings of their
spiritual birth in heaven; thus He knows the past, present and future of the Universe,
knowing beforehand, the beginnings and ends of all the works of His own Creations.

In conclusion then, What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
The Book of Mormon is the greatest primary witness on the face of the earth to validate
the authenticity of the Ancient Biblical Record, with Moroni as the greatest key witness.
The Prophet Moroni testifies emphatically that the Theory of Evolution is so completely
false, as noted in Line upon Line: Moroni 10:3–5. Behold, I would exhort you, that when
ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would
remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation
of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your
hearts. . . . And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. . . .
The key element of this witness testimony concerning the real mortal existence of Adam,
and the factual evidence of the creation of the earth, and all the subsequent related things
thereto, is clearly stated within The Book of Ether. Moroni specifically abridged the record
of the Jaredites. Therefore, from a professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
he is an intimate, personally involved, eye-witness to this account of those twenty and four
plates which were found by the people of Limhi, which is called the Book of Ether. Moroni
mentions: "And as I suppose that the first part of this record, which speaks concerning the
creation of the world, and also of Adam, and an account from that time even to the great
tower, and whatsoever things transpired among the children of men until that time, is had
among the Jews-- Therefore I do not write those things which transpired from the days of
Adam until that time; but they are had upon the plates; and whoso findeth them, the same
will have power that he may get the full account" (as they are written in Adamic language).
Additionally
Legal Records, the Brass Plates, held in the originating possession of Laban,
contained not only the Jewish scriptures, but also Lehi's own genealogy back to Joseph
in Egypt. From a dispassionate, professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
this directly relates to the genealogical Truths taught in 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi, Moroni had
access to the Brass Plates of Laban and knew that those records came forth out of the City
of Jerusalem; and were handed down intact by the seed of originating Nephite father Lehi.
Nevertheless, the very false theory, or secular doctrine of Evolution is currently, and very
openly, and proudly; blatantly expounded upon, by open-minded "scientific" leadership,
from the sacred halls of learning, at
Brigham Young University. Yet, Nephi, son of Lehi,
had a vision of great significance, recorded in
1 Nephi 13:20–42: Plain and Precious Truths.
In particular, from a genealogical research standpoint, 1 Nephi 13: 23, the Gentiles, or us,
today, had a book, which an angel from the Throne of God in Heaven declared, stating:
Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew (collectively, the ancestry of the Jews).
"The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants
of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel (from Old Testament times);
and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record
like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many;
nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house
of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles."
Organic Evolution is false.

     "Now when Noah had lived three hundred and fifty years after the Flood, and that

     years. But let no one, upon comparing the lives of the ancients with our lives, and
     with the few years which we now live, think that what we have said of them is false;
     or make the shortness of our lives at present an argument, that neither did they attain
     to so long a duration of life, for those ancients were beloved of God, and [lately]
     made by God himself; and because their food was then fitter for the prolongation
     of life, might well live so great a number of years: and besides, God afforded them
     a longer time of life on account of their virtue, and the good use they made of it in
     astronomical and geometrical discoveries, which would not have afforded the time
     of foretelling [the periods of the stars] unless they had lived six hundred years; for
     the
Great Year is completed in that interval. Now I have for witnesses to what I have
     said, all those that have written Antiquities, both among the Greeks and barbarians;
     for even Manetho, who wrote the Egyptian History, and Berosus, who collected the
    
Chaldean Monuments, and Mochus, and Hestieus, and besides these, Hieronymus
     the Egyptian, and those who composed the Phoenician History, agree to what I here
     say: Hesiod also, and Hecatseus, Hellanicus, and Acusilaus; and besides these,

     matters, let every one look upon them as he thinks fit."  [Research Note: One Day in

     degrees = 18 times; and that 6 divides into 90 degrees = 15 times. Now, the
Behenian
     fixed stars are a selection of fifteen stars considered especially useful for magical
     applications in the medieval astrology of Europe and the Arab world; each is also
     connected with a gemstone and plant; and when a planet was within six degrees

     And, the Sun, borrows its light from Kolob through the medium of Kae-e-vanrash,
     which is the grand Key, or in other words, the governing power, which governs
     fifteen (15) other fixed planets or stars, as also Floeese or the Moon, the Earth,
     and the Sun in their annual revolutions. The Ancient Jewish Urim and Thummim
     had the names of the twelve (12) Tribes engraved on the breastpiece, to which
     were added those of the three

008:   JARED (the son of MAHALALEEL)

Family of Jared: (And Jared taught Enoch in all the ways of God. Jared was a preacher
of righteousness, and spake and prophesied, and called upon all men everywhere
to repent. And faith was taught unto the children of men. And then began these men
to call upon the name of the Lord, and the Lord blessed them, and a book
of remembrance was kept in the which was recorded in the language of Adam,
for it was given unto as many as called upon God to write by the Spirit of inspiration,
And by them their children were taught to read and write, having a language which
was pure and undefiled. Now this same priesthood which was in the beginning shall
be in the end of the world also. Now this prophecy Adam spake as he was moved
upon by the Holy Ghost. And a genealogy was kept of the children of God.
And this was the book of the generations of Adam . . . JST -

Marriage:

D&C 132: 38
  David also received many wives and concubines, and also Solomon
and Moses my servants, as also many others of my servants, from the
beginning
of
Creation
until this time; and in nothing did they sin save in those things which they
received not of me. [Research Note: This reference from God specifically implies that
Adam, who was at the beginning of Creation, received many wives and concubines,
which would have been given to Adam, by Eve; from some of their female posterity.
This would be consistent with Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ; she also being a spirit
daughter of God, the Eternal Father;
betrothed to God Ahman, by Angel Gabriel (Noah).
This would have directly involved the full consent of
Heavenly Mother; as the only means
provided, whereby she could obtain a future return to an eternal association with all of her
righteous and glorified mortal children. Prophets have taught that our immortal, celestial,
heavenly parents work together in a united manner, for the total comprehensive salvation
of the human family; brought to fulfillment through the blood Atonement of Jesus Christ.]

[Research Note: Plural Marriage "was believed in and practiced by the ancients"; noted
Brigham Young: Beneficial Effects of Polygamy (Journal of Discourses). As LDS President,
Brigham Young also stated "that if you desire with all your hearts to obtain the blessings
which Abraham obtained, you will be polygamists at least in your faith, or you will come
short of enjoying the salvation and the glory which Abraham has obtained. This is as true
as that God lives. . . . The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those
who enter into polygamy. Others attain unto a glory and may even be permitted to come
into the presence of the Father and the Son (in the Celestial Earth Kingdom; single, or in
a monogamously Temple sealed marriage), but they cannot (fully) reign as kings in glory,
because they had blessings offered unto them (to have power to save their own posterity),
and they refused to accept them."
The Power to Seal on Earth and in Heaven remained
actively upon the earth until the days of Elijah the Prophet, one of
Messengers with Keys.
Therefore, according to President Brigham Young, Jesus Christ had to have been married
to more than one wife, before he was exalted. Thus, the New Testament does not contain
a complete record of the Saints family relationships. Furthermore, Biblical society clearly
included plural marriage, as it was "believed in and practiced by the ancients",
(as three
years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared,
Enoch, and Methuselah; all just high priests, having the Holy Priesthood, after the Order
of the Son of God, with the residue of his, Adam's righteous posterity, into the green valley
of
Adam-ondi-Ahman); which society continued on through Shem, or Melchizedek, the son
of Noah; to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or Israel; down into the later Christian Gentile era.
This certainly indicates a tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records, when actually
compared mathematically, with the high number of global inhabitants, in pre-flood times.
Section 138, Vision of the Redemption of the Dead (Doctrine and Covenants 138): "Among
the great and mighty ones who were assembled in this vast congregation of the righteous
were Father Adam, the Ancient of Days and father of all, And our glorious Mother Eve,
with many of her faithful daughters who had lived through the (past Old Testament) ages
and worshiped the true and living God." Adam, or Michael, as the Holy Patriarchal Head
of the Human Family, by Right, has been delegated to hold the keys of the resurrection
of the dead, from Jesus Christ, or Jehovah; having previously passed through that order,
and continuously assists in bringing to pass the crowning of his posterity with immortality,
and eternal lives, under the direction of Son Ahman, the Messiah, Lord of Lords, and King
of Kings. President Joseph F. Smith validates tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records,: "I saw the hosts of the dead, both small and great." -- "And there were gathered
together in one place an innumerable company of the spirits of the just who had been
faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality;" "They were assembled
awaiting the advent of the Son of God into the spirit world, to declare their redemption
from the bands of death." (Thus, this would have been an innumerable company of spirits
having lived in Old Testament times, as "Their sleeping dust was to be restored unto its
perfect frame . . .") "While this vast multitude waited and conversed, rejoicing in the hour
of their deliverance from the chains of death, the Son of God appeared, declaring liberty
to the captives who had been faithful," Also, this multitude did not include all the wicked.
Specific mention is made of seeing and critically identifying additional Old Testament
personalities: Abel, the first martyr; Seth, one of the mighty ones; Noah, of the flood era;
Shem, the great high priest (Melchizedek); Abraham, the father of the faithful; Isaac,
Jacob; Moses, the great law-giver of Israel; Isaiah, who spoke of the Messiah;
Ezekiel;
Daniel; Elias, who appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration; and the prophet Malachi;
"All these and many more, even the prophets who dwelt among the Nephites and testified
of the coming of the Son of God, mingled in the vast assembly"; waiting for deliverance.
Furthermore, Jesus Christ mentions in
Matthew 7: 19–23, when asked why Moses permitted
divorce; Jesus Christ declared: "Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered
you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."
Isaiah 3 & 4 notes Zion and her daughters will be redeemed and cleansed in the coming
millennial day, by the restoration of polygamy: "And in that day, seven women shall
take hold of one man, saying: We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel;
only let us be called by thy name to take away our reproach"; re: 2 Nephi Chapter 14, as
mentioned in the Book of Mormon;
indicating modern day Zion is yet filthy, beforehand.
Since there was no divorce in the beginning, under the ancient patriarchal priesthood,
the unity of family associations would have greatly expanded the number of the children
living upon the earth, down to the time of the period of the administration of prophet Elijah.
Therefore, it is priesthood unrighteous dominion, in the cancellation of Temple Sealings,
or civil divorces, and not genetic DNA, that promotes extreme mental cruelty within lives
of separated posterity; that is the origination of adultery, fornication; all perverted forms
of biological disorientation of the children; a diminished

Jared [Research Note: Jaredites, The Brother of Jared Sees Jesus Christ;
mentioned, but not named Mahonri Moriancumer, in the Book of Mormon.
Jared is a Biblical name, as presented in this record; therefore indicating
the ancestry of Mahonri Moriancumer to stem back anciently to this Jared;
but also clearly suggesting that Ma-hon-ri  Mo-ri-an-cu-mer was distinctly
separate and apart in its construction: thus ancient Adamic language origins.
It appears on the surface observation, that the Adamic language regularly
placed vowels with various consonants, as part of basic speech pronunciation.
This would allow word emphasis to change according to verbal connectivity,
suggesting different word meanings coming from how sounds are expressed.
So, for example, there could be five (5) degrees of fellowship coming out of,
from the mouth, using the same written word, with subsets; dependent upon
the subject matter at hand, being discussed; of temporal, or spiritual issues; it
being then extrapolated upon by fingers and hand fives (5s); for full elucidation.
This also suggests added visual (deaf mute) methodology of body expression;
for all individual persons deaf and hard of hearing, or those unable to speak.
Note clearly that the angel Gabriel had the power to limit Zechariah's speech.]

The Priesthood was first given to Adam. He obtained the First Presidency and held
the Keys of it. He obtained it in the creation before the world was formed, and they
remained on the earth until the Old Testament times of Elijah the Prophet; the last
of those prophets to hold the Keys of the Sealing Power of the Melchizedek Priesthood.
All the ancient prophets of the Old Testament times had the Melchizedek Priesthood.
The Order of the Melchizedek Priesthood was formerly called the High Priesthood of
the Holy Order of God, or the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God. It is
the Church of the Firstborn, or glorified Patriarchal Priesthood celestial heir members.
The sealed family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children.
Old Testament Biblical Records include statements concerning High Priests presiding
in, or holding
Priesthood Keys in the Melchizedek Priesthood, as well as Bishops, who
hold the mighty sacred keys over
The Aaronic Priesthood: The Ministering of Angels.
Priesthood of Aaron restoration was performed by John the Baptist. The
testimony of
Jesus Christ was: This is he, of whom it is written, behold, I send my messenger before
thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those
that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he
that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. And all the people that heard
him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of dear John.
Thus, we
carefully listen to Andrea Bocelli - Angels We Have Heard On High - YouTube™.
Also: Listen to the Voice of Jesus Christ, your Lord, your God, and your Redeemer, whose
word is quick and powerful. And also John the son of Zacharias, which Zacharias he (Elias,
to whom I have committed the keys of bringing to pass the restoration of all things spoken
by the mouth of all the holy prophets since the world began, concerning the last days),
visited and gave promise that he should have a son, and his name should be John,
and he should be filled with the spirit of Elias; Which John I have have sent unto you,
my servants, Joseph Smith, Jun., and Oliver Cowdery, to ordain you unto the first priest-
hood, which you have received, that you might be called and ordained even as Aaron.

What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?

The Science of Molecular Genealogy
suggests: "Molecular science can help genealogists uncover previously unknown family
relationships, verify or refute claims to ancestry, and shed light on questions that have
puzzled family historians for years." There are however, scientific limitations involved,
when considering Latter-day Saint, or Christian belief systems, based upon Bible text;
showing The Internal Consistency and Historical Reliability of the Biblical Genealogies.
Scott Ray Woodward (biologist)] extracted and typed DNA going back millions of years.
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His
EASTER resurrection, validated by LDS (D&C 138),
suggest serious reconsiderations on the actual value of DNA studies, extrapolated back
in temporal time. Foremost of all, What are resurrected bodies like?, declares they are
physical; and thus, no physical bodies upon the earth for molecular science to evaluate.
Moroni, who lived in the fifth century AD, additionally is a physically resurrected being.
So what is left of the ancient molecular past, to scientifically evaluate, are remains from
wicked societies, and social environments, destined for a future Telestial or Terrestrial
eternal existence. All these societies, except for Noah and his family relationships, had
disruptive global flood experiences, degrading and altering their molecular body purity
(as well as a stated corruption of all flesh, intermingled between animals and humans).
Additionally, all spirit is matter, but it is more refined and pure, such that it is infinitely
incapable of being measured by modern technological instruments; nor by DNA data.
God of course knows all of His spirit children, and knows from the beginnings of their
spiritual birth in heaven; thus He knows the past, present and future of the Universe,
knowing beforehand, the beginnings and ends of all the works of His own Creations.

In conclusion then, What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
The Book of Mormon is the greatest primary witness on the face of the earth to validate
the authenticity of the Ancient Biblical Record, with Moroni as the greatest key witness.
The Prophet Moroni testifies emphatically that the Theory of Evolution is so completely
false, as noted in Line upon Line: Moroni 10:3–5. Behold, I would exhort you, that when
ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would
remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation
of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your
hearts. . . . And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. . . .
The key element of this witness testimony concerning the real mortal existence of Adam,
and the factual evidence of the creation of the earth, and all the subsequent related things
thereto, is clearly stated within The Book of Ether. Moroni specifically abridged the record
of the Jaredites. Therefore, from a professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
he is an intimate, personally involved, eye-witness to this account of those twenty and four
plates which were found by the people of Limhi, which is called the Book of Ether. Moroni
mentions: "And as I suppose that the first part of this record, which speaks concerning the
creation of the world, and also of Adam, and an account from that time even to the great
tower, and whatsoever things transpired among the children of men until that time, is had
among the Jews-- Therefore I do not write those things which transpired from the days of
Adam until that time; but they are had upon the plates; and whoso findeth them, the same
will have power that he may get the full account" (as they are written in Adamic language).
Additionally
Legal Records, the Brass Plates, held in the originating possession of Laban,
contained not only the Jewish scriptures, but also Lehi's own genealogy back to Joseph
in Egypt. From a dispassionate, professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
this directly relates to the genealogical Truths taught in 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi, Moroni had
access to the Brass Plates of Laban and knew that those records came forth out of the City
of Jerusalem; and were handed down intact by the seed of originating Nephite father Lehi.
Nevertheless, the very false theory, or secular doctrine of Evolution is currently, and very
openly, and proudly; blatantly expounded upon, by open-minded "scientific" leadership,
from the sacred halls of learning, at
Brigham Young University. Yet, Nephi, son of Lehi,
had a vision of great significance, recorded in
1 Nephi 13:20–42: Plain and Precious Truths.
In particular, from a genealogical research standpoint, 1 Nephi 13: 23, the Gentiles, or us,
today, had a book, which an angel from the Throne of God in Heaven declared, stating:
Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew (collectively, the ancestry of the Jews).
"The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants
of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel (from Old Testament times);
and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record
like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many;
nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house
of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles."
Organic Evolution is false.

     "Now when Noah had lived three hundred and fifty years after the Flood, and that

     years. But let no one, upon comparing the lives of the ancients with our lives, and
     with the few years which we now live, think that what we have said of them is false;
     or make the shortness of our lives at present an argument, that neither did they attain
     to so long a duration of life, for those ancients were beloved of God, and [lately]
     made by God himself; and because their food was then fitter for the prolongation
     of life, might well live so great a number of years: and besides, God afforded them
     a longer time of life on account of their virtue, and the good use they made of it in
     astronomical and geometrical discoveries, which would not have afforded the time
     of foretelling [the periods of the stars] unless they had lived six hundred years; for
     the
Great Year is completed in that interval. Now I have for witnesses to what I have
     said, all those that have written Antiquities, both among the Greeks and barbarians;
     for even Manetho, who wrote the Egyptian History, and Berosus, who collected the
    
Chaldean Monuments, and Mochus, and Hestieus, and besides these, Hieronymus
     the Egyptian, and those who composed the Phoenician History, agree to what I here
     say: Hesiod also, and Hecatseus, Hellanicus, and Acusilaus; and besides these,
     Ephorus and Nicolaus relate that the ancients lived a thousand years. But as to these
     matters, let every one look upon them as he thinks fit."  [Research Note: One Day in

     degrees = 18 times; and that 6 divides into 90 degrees = 15 times. Now, the

     fixed stars are a selection of fifteen stars considered especially useful for magical

     Abraham, and all to whom the Priesthood was revealed (listed in Patriarchal Order).
     There were six days given in the scriptures for the creation of this earth by
Elohim:
     The heads of the Gods, or, the head one of the Gods, appointed one God for us.
     And, the Sun, borrows its light from Kolob through the medium of Kae-e-vanrash,
     which is the grand Key, or in other words, the governing power, which governs
     fifteen (15) other fixed planets or stars, as also Floeese or the Moon, the Earth,
     and the Sun in their annual revolutions. The Ancient Jewish Urim and Thummim
     had the names of the twelve (12) Tribes engraved on the breastpiece, to which
     were added those of the three

009:   ENOCH (the son of JARED)

Family of Enoch:  (And Jared taught Enoch in all the ways of God. Enoch was a preacher
of righteousness, and spake and prophesied, and called upon all men everywhere
to repent. And faith was taught unto the children of men. And then began these men
to call upon the name of the Lord, and the Lord blessed them, and a book
of remembrance was kept in the which was recorded in the language of Adam,
for it was given unto as many as called upon God to write by the Spirit of inspiration,
And by them their children were taught to read and write, having a language which
was pure and undefiled. Now this same priesthood which was in the beginning shall
be in the end of the world also. Now this prophecy Adam spake as he was moved
upon by the Holy Ghost. And a genealogy was kept of the children of God. And this
was the book of the generations of Adam . . . And death hath come upon our fathers,
nevertheless, we know them and cannot deny, and even the first of all we know,
even Adam, for a book of remembrance we have written among us, according
to the pattern given by the finger of God, and it is given in our own language . . .

[Research Note: The Adamic Language was a pattern given by the finger of God.
And behold, all things have their likeness; and all things are created and made
to bear record of me (Jesus Christ / Jehovah): both things which are temporal
and things which are spiritual, things which are in the heavens above, and things
which are on the earth, and things which are in the earth, and things which are
under the earth, both above and beneath, all things bear record of me (Jehovah).
JST - Inspired Version mentions geographic and biological abnormalities during
the lifetime of Enoch. There also came up a land out of the depths of the sea,
and so great was the fear of the enemies of the people of God that they fled,
and stood afar off, and went upon the land which came up out of the depths
of the sea. This implies a massive eruption of the sea bed floor, capable of also
sustaining the escaped human population. And the giants of the land also stood
afar off, and there went forth a curse upon all the people which fought against
God. And from that time forth, there were wars and bloodshed among them, . . .
land barren and unfruitful, cursed with much heat and perpetual barrenness. 
All these items put together, indicate temporal disturbances and corrupt activities
that produced negative biological, genetic DNA distortions and physical aberrations.
It seriously contradicts the false, unscientific, modern assertions of human origins;
especially
Ancient DNA and Neanderthals, including modern human dating systems.

{Research Note: This article begins with the false statement that: "At a broad level,
a Creationist is someone who believes in a god who is absolute creator of heaven
and earth, out of nothing, by an act of free will." See:
Meaning of the Word Create.
The article then states: "Such a deity is generally thought to be 'transcendent'
meaning beyond human experience, and constantly involved ('immanent')
in the creation, ready to intervene as necessary, and without whose constant
concern the creation would cease or disappear." This statement is fully contradicted
by the fact that God knows all of His children on earth, and desires them to know Him.
"And This Is Life Eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ,
whom thou hast sent."; which is clearly mentioned in the New Testament:
John 17: 3.}

Marriage:

D&C 132: 38  David also received many wives and concubines, and also Solomon
and Moses my servants, as also many others of my servants, from the
beginning
of
Creation
until this time; and in nothing did they sin save in those things which they
received not of me. [Research Note: This reference from God specifically implies that
Adam, who was at the beginning of Creation, received many wives and concubines,
which would have been given to Adam, by Eve; from some of their female posterity.
This would be consistent with Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ; she also being a spirit
daughter of God, the Eternal Father;
betrothed to God Ahman, by Angel Gabriel (Noah).
This would have directly involved the full consent of
Heavenly Mother; as the only means
provided, whereby she could obtain a future return to an eternal association with all of her
righteous and glorified mortal children. Prophets have taught that our immortal, celestial,
heavenly parents work together in a united manner, for the total comprehensive salvation
of the human family; brought to fulfillment through the blood Atonement of Jesus Christ.]

[Research Note: Plural Marriage "was believed in and practiced by the ancients"; noted
Brigham Young: Beneficial Effects of Polygamy (Journal of Discourses). As LDS President,
Brigham Young also stated "that if you desire with all your hearts to obtain the blessings
which Abraham obtained, you will be polygamists at least in your faith, or you will come
short of enjoying the salvation and the glory which Abraham has obtained. This is as true
as that God lives. . . . The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those
who enter into polygamy. Others attain unto a glory and may even be permitted to come
into the presence of the Father and the Son (in the Celestial Earth Kingdom; single, or in
a monogamously Temple sealed marriage), but they cannot (fully) reign as kings in glory,
because they had blessings offered unto them (to have power to save their own posterity),
and they refused to accept them."
The Power to Seal on Earth and in Heaven remained
actively upon the earth until the days of Elijah the Prophet, one of
Messengers with Keys.
Therefore, according to President Brigham Young, Jesus Christ had to have been married
to more than one wife, before he was exalted. Thus, the New Testament does not contain
a complete record of the Saints family relationships. Furthermore, Biblical society clearly
included plural marriage, as it was "believed in and practiced by the ancients",
(as three
years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared,
Enoch, and Methuselah; all just high priests, having the Holy Priesthood, after the Order
of the Son of God, with the residue of his, Adam's righteous posterity, into the green valley
of
Adam-ondi-Ahman); which society continued on through Shem, or Melchizedek, the son
of Noah; to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or Israel; down into the later Christian Gentile era.
This certainly indicates a tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records, when actually
compared mathematically, with the high number of global inhabitants, in pre-flood times.
Section 138, Vision of the Redemption of the Dead (Doctrine and Covenants 138): "Among
the great and mighty ones who were assembled in this vast congregation of the righteous
were Father Adam, the Ancient of Days and father of all, And our glorious Mother Eve,
with many of her faithful daughters who had lived through the (past Old Testament) ages
and worshiped the true and living God." Adam, or Michael, as the Holy Patriarchal Head
of the Human Family, by Right, has been delegated to hold the keys of the resurrection
of the dead, from Jesus Christ, or Jehovah; having previously passed through that order,
and continuously assists in bringing to pass the crowning of his posterity with immortality,
and eternal lives, under the direction of Son Ahman, the Messiah, Lord of Lords, and King
of Kings. President Joseph F. Smith validates tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records,: "I saw the hosts of the dead, both small and great." -- "And there were gathered
together in one place an innumerable company of the spirits of the just who had been
faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality;" "They were assembled
awaiting the advent of the Son of God into the spirit world, to declare their redemption
from the bands of death." (Thus, this would have been an innumerable company of spirits
having lived in Old Testament times, as "Their sleeping dust was to be restored unto its
perfect frame . . .") "While this vast multitude waited and conversed, rejoicing in the hour
of their deliverance from the chains of death, the Son of God appeared, declaring liberty
to the captives who had been faithful," Also, this multitude did not include all the wicked.
Specific mention is made of seeing and critically identifying additional Old Testament
personalities: Abel, the first martyr; Seth, one of the mighty ones; Noah, of the flood era;
Shem, the great high priest (Melchizedek); Abraham, the father of the faithful; Isaac,
Jacob; Moses, the great law-giver of Israel; Isaiah, who spoke of the Messiah;
Ezekiel;
Daniel; Elias, who appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration; and the prophet Malachi;
"All these and many more, even the prophets who dwelt among the Nephites and testified
of the coming of the Son of God, mingled in the vast assembly"; waiting for deliverance.
Furthermore, Jesus Christ mentions in
Matthew 7: 19–23
