  Link to: info@nemenhah.org

Also a big shout out and thanks to all the Nemenhah Medicine Men and Women for their special gifts of healing that they are using to help fullfill the Sacred Five-Fold Mission…

Founded in unique indigenous culture and essential non-denominational religious principles that harmonize with countless Faiths and Belief Systems, Nemenhah Ministers across the globe operate within the Five-Fold Mission to bring ceremony and ethics to all walks of life in a pro-active and exciting restoration of the Sacred in Healing.  Whether as a practitioner of a healing modality, a student of spiritual self-improvement, avid gardener, or homemaker, Nemenhah Ministry empowers every aspect of life with universal High Principles that become the “Pillars” of our core foundation.

 NEMENHAH

Our Mission:

Every Member enters into a Sacred Order of the Native American Church of the Nemenhah ITO through the ancient indigenous covenant of Spiritual Adoption,
which is the Ceremony of “Making of Relations”. 
 
This initial “Taking of Orders” is part of the inter-tribal, inter-discipline relationship
and religious structure that defines the essence of Nemenhah Ministry. 
 
We are not a “Tribe” as defined by the Bureau of Indian Affairs and other government agencies, nor do we wish to be; our Mission is best served within the precepts of the United States Code (RFRA) as well as other Laws of the Land in other countries. 
 
Each part of the Five-Fold Mission represents a single Point on a Hoop, neither beginning nor ending, and no point supersedes another in relevance.  To date, Nemenhah ITO stands alone as the only organization of its kind
in the United States and many other countries.
 
Healing Individuals
Our Ministers forge the way through which individuals suffering from ailments both physical and spiritual may find Emergence and the structural organization of the Nemenhah People provides the security and safety to fulfill this sacred work.  Our Ministers operate within their Stewardships, as Custodians of bona-fide Ceremony of the Nemenhah, free from the inhibitory and exterminatory regulations of outside agencies (USC TITLE 42 CHAPTER 21B § 2000BB–1, RFRA).

Healing Families
The ceremonial practices and principles of the Nemenhah place utmost importance

on the development and support of the intrinsic Family Unit,

 a concept rapidly losing relevance in today’s modern world. 

Nemenhah Ministers place no greater significance than that over little children or for caring for our loved ones through the administering of sacred healing and sustainable living practices such as Permaculture and Sacred Giveaway. 

Nemenhah Ministers, whether as practitioners of a specific modality or not, inspire their children and families toward developing ethical High Principles through regular spiritual activities, physical disciplines and youth activities, and also the broadening of young minds through education both at home and abroad.

Healing Communities
Nemenhah Ministers work to extract themselves from the Commerce Serpent where the buying and selling of goods and services, merely for the getting of gain, drives families and entire communities into the slavery of debt and endless consumerism.

 Our Ministers rise above Commerce by transforming their practices and “clientele”  into parish establishments founded and administrated by sound ethical principles

and ceremonies that promote essential charity, tolerance, civility and sustainability

for the practitioner and his/her “clients”. 

Clients become Parishioners, Congregants, Supplicants and members of a highly spiritual local congregation of like-minded people within a global community supported by “Pillars” of High Principles.

Healing Society
The especially high standards of practice, excellence and ethics promoted by Nemenhah Ministers is administrated universally through the implementation and practice of an

Indigenous Consensus Council System passed on to modern Nemenhah

By our Ancestors. 

Nemenhah is self-regulating with local, regional and global administration designed to provide our Ministers with every level of authoritative instruction and guidance they could possibly need, as well as the crucial religious infrastructure that provides for RFRA implementation and protection in the face of exterminatory persecution.  Our Ministers introduce the concept of governance that is based in universal moral and ethical religious orientation to Peoples and Nations by their own participation and by promoting the sound community-building practices found within Nemenhah Society in general.

Healing the Planet
By applying principles of personal, local and community sustainability through essential charity, moderation and ethical governance, Ministers of the Nemenhah strive to reduce the horrific impact of modern consumerist practices on the environment

 and our Mother Earth. 

By expressing our devotion to “All my Relations” through the adoption and implementation of sustainable practices such as Permaculture, waste reduction, recycling and community based production and environmental awareness, our Ministers take a pro-active approach to restoring the health and vitality of

this motherly sphere that sustains all life as we know it.

Thank you…
For your interest in Nemenhah and we hope this information was helpful in illuminating our purpose and Organization.  Feel free to contact us any time with questions and comments at the contact information provided on this website.

We Walk in a Sacred Manner, We Talk in a Sacred Manner;

It is a great honor to share with you all…

The last chapter of The Record of MorHonayah and the last book of Volume 4 of The Mentinah Archives or The Sacred Records of The Nemenhah…

Chapter Eighteen

1) And under the direction of the high priest, the people made a regulation of the church and of their religion.

But behold, they required no man or woman to comply with their directives as Tucantor did, but all were invited to seek a confirmation of the truth for themselves.

2) And behold, if any person received not the same confirmation as the rest of the people, they were not punished or shunned.

But because all the people were admonished to receive the Holy Ghost  in all things, and also the direct commission of the Lord, the influence of those who would control the people or take authority over them was made the lesser of their concerns.

3) But when a person broke the laws of the city, they were dealt with according as the people did dictate.

And this was done to insure the peace, but never as a means of demanding that one person believe the same as any other.

4) And behold, there were those who continued to believe the teachings of Tucantor and this did create a division among the people.

But such division was not against the law of the people and, even though Tucantor would have taken the control of the entire city, his followers were still considered part of the
community and their vote had as much weight as any other’s.

5) And Tucantor took some few of his followers and they did request of the council a piece of land on the which to build a synagogue.

And the council did grant the land and they did build.

And the followers of Tucantor worshipped God after their own conscience and most ways their worship did resemble the ways of the Nemenhah, except that the priesthood was elevated in an extreme manner and almost they did appear to worship the high priest and extol him instead of God.

And the priesthood and all public service was withheld from all women.

6) But behold, they were full of charity and good works, and they did speak peaceably to all the people.

And they did teach baptism with water and also the purification of the Ammonihah.

And they did marry and were given in marriage.

Yea, in all ways they did resemble the Nemenhah and they did do the things the
Nemenhah did, except in the power and authority they rendered unto the priesthood, and also in the manner in which they did subjugate women.

7) And the more part of their beliefs did appear well to the people and they did allow them all freedom to act and be acted upon in the city, just as they did any other citizen.

But behold, among the followers of Tucantor, there were those who had much, in terms of spiritual things, and there were those who had less.

And behold, among them there were even those unto whom the ordinances and the gifts were withheld because they were deemed unworthy by the high priest.

Wherefore, there were divisions among them and hard feelings and harsh words, and this thing was seen by the council of Mentinah and by the Peli as troubling, and they watched them silently.

8) But the city and its citizens did prosper, as did all the cities and settlements in the land, with the exception of certain cities away down in the south by the gulf of the sea.

In some of these cities there was division and unrest.

For some of the people there had ceased to give of their surplus and began to heap up their substance as in days of old.

9) And this thing was because of the remnant of the Gadiantonhem left in that region after the Great War.

And they did pervert the ways of the Nemenhah.

10) But in the northern regions and in the mountains, the ways of the Nemenhah continued unchanged and the people did prosper and grow.

And behold, they did also prosper in the things of the Spirit.

For they did seek the face of Christ and the confirmation of the Holy Ghost.

Wherefore, in their daily walk and their daily talk, they did seek the sacred

and they were highly favored of the Lord.

11) And in my own city there was peace.

Yea, in all the remainder of my life, I saw no reason to grieve or to hasten away to settle any conflict at all.

The people of Elak Kowat needed little admonition to seek their God and this was a great comfort to me.

12) And behold, I became old, having lived well past the age of a tree.

And I began to feel my Lord call me.

Yea, I began to feel that He would call me home.

Wherefore behold, I did beg the people to call another to sit in the seat of the high priest in my stead.

But they would not, preferring that I ought to be high priest to them until the day that I should be taken from among them.

13) And I do finish my record.

For I do believe that I shall surely lay down my life soon.

Yea, I shall go unto my grandfathers and enter into that rest of the Lord that He does promise unto them who love Him.

14) For I do love the Lord with all my heart.

And with all my might I do worship Him.

Yea, He is my wellspring, and the bread of my life.

He has promised that I might be filled with His love and

 Behold, He has done it.

Yea, He has promised that I might have His light and

 Behold, I do walk daily in that light.

15) Behold, I have been blessed beyond all that I had thought possible.

Yea, I have been blessed greatly.

I have bound myself to a daughter of God and we have seen His face together.

16) Our children do honor us and do us honor in all their walk and talk.

Yea, in all that they have done, they have given us cause only to praise our God in them.

Surely, our children are a blessing unto us.

17) And behold, we have prospered in every good thing that we have undertaken.

Yea, our crops do grow and our beasts multiply.

Our work has been hard and sometimes we have been greatly burdened.

But, with every burden under which we have bowed our backs, giving thanks unto God, behold, He has blessed us and succored us.

18) And behold, has He hid His face from us?

I say unto you, Nay!

He has led us into His presence.

And it is a great blessing to us that He does not require us to wait

until the day of our death to come unto Him,

and a great blessing that we may approach Him even in our bodies.

For behold, He has prepared the Way before us and we do make good use of it.

19) And this is the key to our prosperity, our success, and our happiness.

For is it possible that we could have been so prosperous and happy without

His presence in our lives?

It may be possible that we might have succeeded in the wilderness, but could we claim such happiness?

Or can anyone say that greater happiness can be achieved than that

the Lord should prepare all things before them?

Nay, but we have been blessed and prospered because of the goodness of our God.

20) For the world is a wilderness and we are lost in it without the Lord.

Yea, we do walk alone in darkness, hoping to find truth and health,

and hoping to be able to provide for our needs.

And the sun does rise upon us each day, but so also does it rise upon our enemies.

Lone and dangerous is the world and filled with calamity.

21) Yea, the world is full of war and of rumor of evil and without the love of God we would be as the beasts of the field and of the mountains.

For, surely He does love them also, but they are left to make their way in the wild.

Behold, short and bitter is the life of the wild animal, and so too would be the life of man if it were not for the Lord and His grace.

22) For behold, because of Him we may become more than we are.

Yea, because of His atonement, we may hope to emerge from darkness into the light of the day of His grace.

Yea, and we have hope that our lives may account for a greater thing and a greater work.

Behold, we may arise out of this darkness into a blessed state of happiness.

23) And behold, He has provided that this life might be a type of the life that we shall enjoy hereafter.

Yea, even in the midst of darkness,

yet may we walk upon the Way with Him and see His face.

And behold, walking with Him and in His way,

we may be instructed in all things and emerge,

putting down this clay and taking up great glory and exaltation.

24) We shall not remain as we are but shall become even as He is.

And if we are perfected in all things, then are we not made as the Father?

Then are we not become as the Mother?

And is this not a greater thing than we could ever imagine?

Yea, is this not a blessing?

25) For it is beyond hope that we could have overcome our natures without the assistance of Him who overcame all things.

Yea, it is beyond hope that we could have, in this carnal, put away all carnality.

Behold, it is beyond hope that we could have arisen with our mortality into immortality. Great is God and holy,

for He has provided for us a way out of darkness.

26) And behold, we shall rise into immortality and eternal life.

 Yea, because of His atonement, we shall cast aside all that is beastly.

The night of our tribulation shall bring again the dawning of His glory in us.

And we shall learn war no more.

Surely, our swords shall we make into plowshares, and our spears into pruning hooks.

And the science of war we shall teach no more unto our children.

For the Lord is our vanguard and our rearguard.

Yea, He shall go before us and we are girded up in His love.

27) Behold, the Lord is our foundation and our sure wall.

He is the buttress that does protect us from the forces of the world.

He has revealed Himself to us and does not hide His face from us.

We do live in His presence and He does instruct us.

28) And we do come into His presence and He does make His abode with us.

Surely, there can be no greater blessing from heaven

than that we do walk and talk with the Lord our God.

For, what calamity can compare and what tribulation can make conquest of that peace which comes only from the presence of God?

29) And His yoke is not heavy.

We are not bowed down by His commandments.

His doctrine is simple and it is easy to live.

We are edified by His spirit and the Holy Ghost is our constant companion.

There is no want in our souls and we do hunger and thirst, but not for bread and wine, for of these things we have plenty.

But we do hunger and thirst after righteousness because the Lord is with us.

30) Behold we do honor the Lord in all things, remembering Him and His sacrifice for us.

He has taken us into His household and we are His children.

Yea, we do sit at the feet of our Lord and we do learn wisdom, even as a little child does sit at the feet of his grandfather or his grandmother and learn wisdom.

Such is our Lord unto us.

31) Yea, the Nemenhah have been blessed beyond measure.

And this is also a blessing unto me, for I am Nemenhah also.

And in all that the Nemenhah are blessed and prospered, I do esteem it blessing and
prosperity unto myself.

32) And even in my rememberings, of a life long past, which are full of grievous things, yet I do rejoice in my Lord.

For all of my sufferings have become joy and all of my pain also.

And that field of blood and crimson which I thought was all that I had left in my stead, by which the world must surely have remembered me, He has turned up and made of it as a field of white.

Surely, I am the most blessed of men.

33) Wherefore, I do give up this stylus and also all my tools unto my son, and I go unto that rest which my Lord shall provide for me.

Amen.

Part XVII MorHonayah; A Record Of All The Ordinances And Ceremonies In Use By The Nemenhah; After The Manner of the Ammonites

Greetings all my relations,

It is a great day to be studying this sacred record written by the hand of our beloved Prophet MorHonayah (Angel Moroni).

 

 Vol. 4 

The Record of MorHonayah

The Son of Mormon

Chapter Seventeen

1) And behold, the people met again in council to choose someone to sit in the seat of the high priest of Mentinah, and they deliberated long on the matter.

And when they had fasted and prayed, behold, they cast the lot upon Minoet, the daughter of Shedet.

2) And Minoet called a Council of the Peli of the city of Mentinah for the purpose of making a regulation of the church.

And she counseled them to find out the will of the Lord by revelation, and also the will of the people, as to how the church ought to be managed.

3) And she did also search the archives and made a record

of all the ordinances and ceremonies then in use by the Nemenhah

 to make plain who was to administer them

and how they were to be administered.

And she did request of the people that they inquire of the Lord in all things, that the people might once again be brought into unity.

4) And these are the ordinances that are being administered to the Nemenhah at this time.

And I do include them in my record.

5) Behold, the Ordinance of the Blessing of the Newborn Children,

or Unchi-im, is made by the parents of the child, or one from among the family or friends of the child who has been designated to act in the office of Peli for them.

And this ordinance is not a saving grace, but is a tradition and a custom among the
Nemenhah.

6) And the Ordinance of the Blessing of Children,

or Unchi-Aht, is made as often as the parents deem necessary and it is done by the parents or the Peli.

And this ordinance is not a saving grace, but is a good tradition and a custom of the Nemenhah.

7) And when a young person has received a remission of their sins, they are baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

And this ordinance is made by the parent or the Peli.

And this baptism is called Unchi Ahm Aht Ahm, and it is a saving grace.

By it we do betoken that we have become in all ways the Lord’s and that He has washed us clean of all iniquity.

Wherefore, let all people repent and be baptized.

And the young person is straightly charged to receive the Holy Ghost.

8) And when a person wishes to renew any good thing and continue clean in the eyes of the Lord, they participate in the Unipi and the Itsipi,

after the manner of the Ammonites.

And the Peli shall perform the ordinances as dictated by the Holy Ghost.

And this is a saving grace, but it is not required for all people.

9) And at any time that a new thing is confirmed, they do repeat the Unshi Ahm Aht Ahm.

And this is done

And this is done by the family and in the company of friends to demonstrate with an ordinance and a token every new emergence out of the natural state of man.

10)  And when a person has received the commission of the Lord by revelation,

and reports the same unto their parent, they are made Peli.

And this is done by the laying on of hands.

If the person is a young man, this priesthood is conferred upon him and he receives a blessing and an ordination.

If the person is a young woman, she receives a blessing and an ordination.

And this priesthood is the Order of Levi and it is received by all who shall perform public ordinances, but behold, it is not a saving grace.

Nevertheless, the Lord has given it and He desires that it be done in this manner.

11)  And when any person is called up to do a public service unto the people, behold the Peli does take that person and, laying hands upon them, gives a blessing and an ordination to the calling.

And this is done in public or in private, and all the people sustain the calling.

12)  And the people meet often to participate in the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper, which they do call Manna.

And it is an ordinance that is made by the Peli, as the scriptures do instruct and according to the guidance and the direction of the Holy Ghost.

And behold, it is a saving grace, wherefore, the people do meet together often to receive of it.

13)  And the people also make this ordinance in their homes.

And when the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper is made in the home, they seek the commission of the Lord in it each time.

14)  And when a new house or public building is constructed, the Peli does pronounce a blessing upon the place to make it holy ground.

And this is done by the direction of the Holy Ghost, but it is not a saving grace.

15)  And when a field is broken, the same is done as for a new house.

And also when a field is harvested, the same is done.

16)  And the priests and the Peli do offer up a sacred smoke of incense, and the people do this also as families.

Yea, and even as individuals, we do offer up a sweet smoke and a sweet smell unto the Lord.

And this we do with all our prayers and in all our oblations and ordinances.

And this semblance of the ancient temple of our fathers we do preserve in honor of all those whose prayers have risen up unto heaven in our behalf.

But it is not a saving grace and is not required for salvation’s sake.

Notwithstanding, we make this offering out of the honor that we feel for the sacrifices of those who have gone before us and for the gifts that they passed on to us.

17)  Now, the ordinances of the High Place are administered to the people through the office of the high priest and all the ordinances are made by the Peli.

And the high priest shall manage the affairs of the temple so that all might go there freely and receive of the ordinances.

And these ordinances are saving grace, wherefore, all the people do go up to the High Place and receive of them.

18)  And the high priest may call men and women to be priests and teachers.

And when this is done, they are taken aside and hands are laid upon them, and they are ordained unto these callings.

19)  And behold, the Peli do choose a Council of thirteen from among them and they do confer upon them the priesthood of Melchizedek, even after the pattern given by the Lord.

And they do this upon receiving the commission of the Lord by revelation.

And in this way, the council that He appointed is preserved.

And behold, it is out of this council that the people do choose and call up their high priests.

And behold, every city does this same thing.

20)  And when a man is called up to this council, he is taken aside by the whole council and this priesthood is conferred upon the man

and he is ordained an high priest by the laying on of hands.

And when a woman is called up to this council, she is also taken aside by the council and she is ordained an high priest by the laying on of hands.

But behold, this order of priesthood is not conferred upon her,

for she has it already of the Mother.

Wherefore, how may we confer it?

21)  And behold, the people choose from among this council who shall be high priest of the city.

And, upon the election, the council does take the one elected,

be they man or woman,

and they do lay hands upon the elected and ordain them high priest of the city.

22)  Now, these are the ordinances of the priesthood, and they are for the edification of the people.

Part XVI MorHonayah; And Behold, We Know That This Is The Work And The Purpose Of Priesthood – Yea, It Is To Bring Men And Women Unto The Peacemaker

Greetings all my relations,

It is a great blessing to have these words from the Great Indian Prophet MorHonayah (Moroni). We are going to continue studying today, from the Sacred Records of The Nemenhah;

Vol.4

The Record of MorHonayah

The Son of Mormon

Chapter Sixteen

1) Now, this event did disturb the people greatly.

For they had always thought that the high priest did act in accordance with that which is confirmed by the Holy Ghost.

And it did seem that this high priest did speak contrary to that confirmation.

Yea, even he did speak in contradiction of those things which the Lord Himself did teach when He visited our forefathers.

2) But there was some truth in his words.

For, the Lord did give the orders of the priesthood to be a means whereby men might learn to do the things that He does.

And also, He did give the priesthood that men and women

might learn to serve one another.

3) But He did by no means teach that the priesthood is the font of salvation.

For the Holy Ghost is that holy being by whose power we may know

The truth

And have a remembrance of all things.

And also that same Holy Ghost does seal up the righteous unto Christ.

Wherefore, He is called the Holy Spirit of Promise and it is by this sealing that we may come unto Christ and become His.

For, the Peacemaker is the font of our salvation.

4) And behold, we know that this is the work

And the purpose of priesthood.

Yea, it is to bring men and women unto the Peacemaker

And to be sealed up His.

Wherefore, heaven and earth may pass away, yet shall all that is His stand forever.

And therefore, if we are His, then when the earth does flee and the heavens melt away, yet shall we stand in our lot and live.

5) But Tucantor would have it believed that this same Holy Ghost is secondary to the priesthood and that His purpose is not as has been taught by prophets and by God Himself.

Yea, he would have us all believe that the power of the priesthood supersedes that unspeakable gift of the Holy Ghost and that we ought not have the right to seek a confirmation of the truth of all things.

6) But this is contrary to the work and the will of God.

For, are we not taught that we must seek His face?

And how shall we know of a surety that God even exists?

Shall Tucantor declare and all simply believe?

Is this sufficient?

I say unto you, Nay.

7) Behold, I do believe that the land of Jerusalem, from whence came our forefathers, does truly exist far away to the West.

But I have never stepped upon that land.

Nay, I cannot testify of my own knowledge that Jerusalem is real and that in that city there yet stands one stone upon another.

Indeed, how may I do it?

For, unless I see the city with my own eyes, I cannot testify anything about it.

8) But behold, I can and do testify of the existence and the divinity of my Lord, yea, even every day of my life.

And how may this be done unless I have seen Him with my own eyes?

Behold, by the power of the Holy Ghost has the truth of the identity and the character of God been made known to me.

9)  Does the high priest make a thing so simply by declaring it?

Or does God exist because the high priest declares it?

I say unto you, Nay.

Behold, the high priest may only testify of what he knows by and through the gift of the Holy Ghost which is in him and then invite others to seek that same confirmation.

10)  But, if I receive not the same confirmation as the high priest, shall I be condemned as a sinner?

Believe it not.

Or shall I be cast out from among the people because I receive not the same confirmation as the high priest?

I say unto you, Nay.

Or is it the high priest unto whom I must come

to obtain a remission of my sins?

Or is it unto the high priest that I must seek to be sealed?

11)  Behold, the people of Mentinah took from Tucantor the mantle of high priest of the city, but can they remove from him to be known as Peli and high priest?

Not at all.

It is verily so, he does not agree with the voice or common consent of the people, but that does not make him a sinner or miscreant.

The intent of his heart shall continue to define him.

12)  Behold, the priesthood of God is a tool for him and through it we may work to perfect ourselves and better our lives through service to our fellow beings.

I am not given to be high priest in the city of Elak Kowat because I am perfect already.

Nay! But rather, I am called up by my people to serve them in all things, and in this way I am edified.

Yea, in this thing I am given a means whereby I might to do more for my neighbor than I might have otherwise been able to do.

13)  And behold, I am high priest to my city.

Does this give me authority to do more than my calling allows?

Yea, does this give me authority to order the lives of my neighbors?

To say unto them, you must do this or you must do that.

And behold, if you do not this or that, you shall not be blessed of the Lord?

 Does the high priest, or any office of the priesthood,

give anyone the right or authority to declare worthiness

or to withhold ordinances?

Is the priesthood mighty to save, or is it the priesthood that which brings salvation?
I say unto, it is not.

And does the priesthood convey dominion over any thing?

I say unto you, It does not.

Part XV MorHonayah; How Is It That The Doors To The Temple Of Eve Stand Closed To Her Children?

Greetings all my relations,

It is a great day to meet with you again.

Lets pray and give thanks for the teachings of our ancestors.

We return return to study;

Vol 4: The Record of MorHonayah

The Son of Mormon

Chapter Fifteen

1) Behold, the Nemenhah know unto whom they look for atonement.

It is the same today as it was when the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost

Did gather all living into that great council

wherein they did initiate the New and Everlasting Covenant.

Yea, we do know that we shall have all things brought to our remembrance

by the Holy Ghost, even the Holy Spirit of Promise.

And behold, I say again, we do know unto whom we look for exaltation.

We do look to our Creator, the Peacemaker, even the Son of God.

2) And we do also know that should any man, kindred or nation declare unto the world that salvation comes not through Him who is mighty to save.

Behold, it is a sign unto us that they have left the plan of happiness, and the path of truth.

Yea, if ever we begin to think of ourselves as saviors in that light, we know to turn ourselves again and repent of the evil which has come into our hearts.

3) Now, this thing did verily come to pass in Mentinah.

For there was elevated to the seat of high priest one who was mighty to prophesy.

Not long after the controversy was resolved in Mentinah over who should stay and who should remove to another place, in order that the people placed not too great a burden upon the land, the high priest whom the people of Mentinah had chosen died, as all men do.

4)  And they resolved upon another to take unto themselves a certain man to be high priest who was mighty in prophecy.

And his name was Tucantor, and he was descended

from Hagoth and from Hementah.

5)  And he did walk upon the Way for a time.

But behold, he ceased to subject all things unto the confirmation of the Holy Ghost, insomuch that he did begin to interpret every thought that did come into his mind and into his heart as the very word and will of God.

And because of this, he did begin to place constraints upon the personal revelation that is the right of every person.

6)  Yea, when he called upon his fellow servants to fill certain stewardships, he did declare unto them that they had no choice in the matter.

Or, in other words, he taught them that they ought not to importune the Lord in the matter because that he had already received the word of the Lord.

And also he did begin to teach that only the high priest had the keys to prophesy

and to receive revelation for and in behalf of the whole nation.

Wherefore, the individual had no more right to such things, for the Lord had chosen him to be His seer.

7)  Now, in this thing he did greatly err.

For, the seer is the servant of the Lord.

And if he is the Lord’s servant then he must also be the servant of the people.

Yet the high priest of Mentinah did manifest what he declared to be the will of the Lord unto all the people and he did not invite them to follow, but rather, he demanded obedience of them.

Wherefore, he became the taskmaster of all the people.

8)  And this was grievous to the people.

For the Lord had taught them that they must come unto Him.

But the high priest insisted that they must not importune Him nor weary Him with inquiry.

Yea, he even taught the people that to do so, or in other words, to inquire of the Lord concerning any matter upon which the high priest had already spoken, was to take the Lord’s name in vain.

9)  And behold, this teaching did go about the country and there were some of the high priests in other cities and settlements that took it up also.

Yea, and even some of the priests and the teachers did also take it up.

To the extent that a division developed among the people.

10)  And the people of my city did come unto me and they did inquire of me my opinion of the doctrine, saying;

11)  What think you of this new doctrine which the high priest of Mentinah does preach concerning importuning the Lord in all things?

For, he does teach us that we ought not to seek the confirmation of the Holy Ghost in all things, but that in all matters upon which our leaders have already spoken, we should
leave well enough alone.

For, if we importune the Lord, yea, if we weary Him, do we not endanger our own salvation?

12)  And I answered them saying;

13)  This doctrine is false.

Let us go up even unto Mentinah and inquire of the high priest concerning it.

For it is my understanding that the Lord has I do not recall where He has admonished us to pray unto the high priest.

Wherefore, let us go up even unto Mentinah and see what this high priest will say.
14)  And we did make a delegation and we did travel up even unto Mentinah.

And we did arrive in the middle of the day and the high priest and all them that he had called to assist him had gone up into the temple to worship.

And behold, when we came nigh unto the temple, behold, one of his servants did come forth and declare unto us that the high priest was at private service in the temple and we could not go in unto him.

15)  Now, this was a curious thing indeed.

For, have our forefathers not taught that the temple is the High Place of the Lord and that none should ever be prevented from going in unto it?

I say unto you, This is the custom of the High Place of the Lord.

16)  Wherefore, I did beat upon the door of the temple or lodge of Adam to find the high priest there.

And I found him not.

Whereupon, we did pass through.

And we did beat upon the doors of all the lodges of the temple until we had ascended the hill even unto the temple of Eve and the door thereof.

17)  And when I did beat upon the door, a servant did come out unto us and addressed us, saying;

18)  What is the cause of this noise that you make in the holy place?

Have you no reverence for the temple of God or of His priesthood?

19)  And I did answer him.

And these are the words with which I did make my response;

20)  How is it that the doors to the temple of Eve stand closed to her children?

Has this ever been?

Or when have the doors of the High Place become a bulwark to prevent entrance to the righteous?

21)  And the man did answer me, saying;

22)  Behold, Mor Honayah, if you were truly the righteous as you say, you would not come up to the High Place bellowing like a bull.

Those within are worshipping in reverence.

Be still and disturb them not!

23)  And these words did sting me to the center, and I did answer him, saying;

24)  I come to make a joyful sound with my brother the high priest.

Or is the worship of the high priest become so reverent that there is no joy to be found in the High Place under his stewardship?

How is it that the high priest does go into the High Place and lock the doors behind him?

When did the ordinances and the observance of them become private worship?

25)  And the man, whose name was Shan Rayin, did answer me, saying;

26)  Behold, the high priest did receive of the Lord a revelation and did give him new ordinances to be performed herein.

And only those called of God by the mouth of the high priest of Mentinah, who is the
seer and prophet of God, may go up into the High Place.

For the Lord has always given the management of the High Place and of the Archives into the hands of the high priest.

Wherefore, his are the keys of this priesthood and none possess them but him in this generation.

Wherefore, do not come up from out of your waste place, your refuge, and seek to order the house of God.

27)  Now behold, these words did kindle in me a wrath which I had not felt since the Nephite war, and I did pass by Sha Rayin and I did stand forth and cast down the door of the temple of Eve.

And when I had cast down the door, I did set it gently against the wall thereof, that none might think that I lacked reverence for the house of my mother.

But behold, I did pass into the lodge to confront the high priest.

28)  But, before I could stand forth to make my inquiry of him, behold we were set upon by armed men and we were forced to retreat from out of the High Place altogether, for we were not accustomed to carrying arms in the holy place.

And these armed men did stand forth to prevent any conversation with the high priest.

29)  Wherefore, I did take the delegation and we did assemble in the place of Counsel. Yea, and we did call upon and summon the Council to hear our grievance.

But behold, the clerk of the Council did inform us that by a revelation received of the high priest, the Council of Mentinah had been dissolved and done away.

Wherefore, there was none to hear our complaint.

30)  Now, all this had been done in the city of Mentinah by word of revelation received by the high priest.

And it was done quickly and under arms was it accomplished.

Yea, and so quickly was this done that none yet knew of it even within most precincts of the city.

So quickly had this man done this wickedness that the people themselves were hardly aware of it.

And he had done it under guise of priesthood.

31)  And we did voice the news abroad in the city, that all might know of it.

And a multitude did gather to hear the rumor, scarcely believing that such a thing could come to pass in Mentinah.

And when we had related to the multitude what had taken place amongst their fair city, they believed us not at all.

Wherefore, we did entreat them to go even up to the High Place and see for themselves if there were not armed men at the gate thereof to bar the way before them.

32)  And they did return unto us and they did testify unto the multitude that our words were spoken in truth.

Yea, they did testify unto all the people that the high priest had set armed men at the gate of the High Place to bar the way to any who had not received of him a new priesthood.

33)  Then were the people outraged and they all went straightway up to the temple to see the thing for themselves.

And behold, when the guards saw the number of the people approaching them, that it was great, they cast down their weapons and begged the crowd to hear them, saying;

34)  Behold, men and women of Mentinah, put this thing not upon us.

For did you not raise up to yourselves this high priest?

And is he not a man great in prophecy and in visions?

Wherefore, he did command us in accordance with his stewardship over this house.

And are we able to judge our master?

35)  And with these words they did placate the mob. 

For behold, never before was such a thing seen in Mentinah.

Yea, never before had the doors of the High Place been shut to any person.

And never before had a high priest ever sought to usurp the rights of the people and subvert the ways of the Lord. And their anger was hot.

36)  And they did place me at the head of the mob and we did pass through even up the hill to the door of the temple of Eve, and we did enter therein and found the high priest kneeling before an altar of stone cut by the hand of man, yea, with steps leading up to it, which he had caused to be raised up in that holy place.

37)  And when he did perceive that his guards had not kept the people from his private worship, he stood before us and was wroth.

And surely he did speak to us with hard words, saying;

38)  What is this evil?

How do you come up to this holy place, yea, even into the sanctuary of the High Place
to disturb my worship?

39)  And I did answer him, saying;

40)  Behold, I am Mor Honayah, the same who was high priest in this place, but am now high priest of Elak Kowat.

I came up into this place with that same spirit and countenance with which I have ever
approached the High Place.

But behold, I was met with locked doors and armed men.

What have you been doing here?

41)  And he answered me, saying;

42)  Go back to Elak Kowat, Mor Honayah.

Go back even unto your own city and rule it as you see fit.

The Lord has chosen me to be prophet of Mentinah and has given me priesthood and authority.

Wherefore, seek not to circumvent the Lord or His prophet.

43)  And I answered him, saying;

44)  I will of a surety go back to my own home, Tucantor, but not before you have answered my questions.

For I esteem that the high priest of Mentinah is a duty and a stewardship of some import to us all.

Wherefore, when strange news came even unto me in my own city, I determined that I ought to withhold judgment until I had spoken unto you concerning the thing.

45)  For behold, Tucantor, I believed not that such stories as were told to me could be true.

For, I was told of the undoing of all that the Nemenhah have stood for over the course of all the generations since we left the Land Southward.

But I could not believe that such a thing could have been done by one chosen by the
people to safeguard even that which is most precious to us.

46)  Wherefore, I shall leave and return unto my own place in good and due course.

But before I do, you shall surely answer me my inquiry.

47)  And Tucantor puffed himself up in his pride and he answered me, saying;

48)  Of a truth, Mor Honayah, you shall ask your questions.

But I say unto you, I shall answer only that which pleases me.

For I have received the keys of the kingdom and do not answer to you.

Wherefore, make your inquiry.

49)  And I did reason with him;

50)  I have been told that you have decreed that the Lord makes known His mystery and His will to you through revelation.

51)  That is correct, Mor Honayah.

The Lord has revealed to me His order.

Yea, I have received under the hand of His servant, even an angel of the Lord, that order of priesthood whereby He shall govern His people in righteousness.

52)  And I answered unto him; That is well Tucantor.

Surely the Lord shall give His commission unto whom He will, for it is His alone to give.

53)  You speak the truth, Mor Honayah.

The Lord does give of His authority sparingly.

And by the word of His angel He has given the keys of His authority unto me.

54)  And again I answered him saying;

55)  How may one know of a surety that what you say is true?

How may I know beyond the doubting in my heart that you are truly the anointed of God and that I may follow all your words with confidence?

Is there not some way in which the Lord might appease my anxiety?

56)  And Tucantor did answer me, saying;

57)  Do not trifle with the things of the Lord, Mor Honayah.

Nay, make not a play thing of the word and will of Him whose voice is like a two-edged sword.

For to play upon His words is to take up the sword not by the hilt, but by the blade.

Wherefore, have a care.

58)  Surely, what you say is true, Tucantor.

But I am just a man.

How may a mere man know the truth of what you say?

How may I test your prophecy?

59)  And Tucantor answered me, saying;
60)  You cannot.

You must obey.

The Lord will reveal what He will and you shall have no complaint.

And the Lord shall reveal His secrets unto whom He will and again you shall have no complaint.

61)  And I answered him; You are mistaken, Tucantor.

For the Lord has taught us and we have all that He has revealed unto His prophets.

And has He not entreated us to subject all things unto the confirmation of the Holy Ghost?

Has He not taught that the Holy Ghost shall be a comforter unto us?

And shall the Holy Ghost no longer bring anything to our remembrance because you have seen an angel?

62)  And you declare that there shall be but one prophet.

Is this a sound doctrine?

Is this how the Lord has treated with His people?

Shall we throw out all the scriptures because you have seen an angel?

Shall we give over our responsibility to test all things, yea, and prove all things by the Holy Ghost because you are a man with gifts?

63)  And hearing this, the high priest was wroth and he spoke harshly unto me and unto all the multitude.

And the rumor of his words went out unto all the people.

64)  Mor Honayah, you are mistaken.

We live in different times.

Do not judge the Lord your God.

Surely, if He desires to work differently today than He did in generations past, what is this to you.

Will you dictate to the Lord how He shall do this, or will you regulate the Lord in how He shall do that?

65)  And I answered him, saying;
66)  I do not begrudge the Lord any thing.

Nay, I would not seek to judge my God.

Let Him do according to His word and will.

For, His ways are always good and just.

And if He has given you a new revelation which does illuminate His word and His will for us in our day, I am well.

I shall follow your revelation.

Yea, I shall bow to your prophecy, if the Holy Ghost does testify and witness unto me the truth of it.

67)  For, behold I say unto you Tucantor, there is more than one God in the Heavens with whom we have to do.

Yea, there is the Father and the Mother.

And there is the Son.

And there is the Holy Ghost.

And there are many Heavenly Beings.

And I know that they are separate beings, yet their purpose is one.

And they did enter into a covenant with each other to bring about this world and this creation.

68)  Wherefore, the Lord has taught that He shall surely reveal His secrets unto His servants the prophets.

But behold, He has also taught that we must submit all His words

and revelations unto the confirmation of the Holy Ghost.

69)  Verily, he has taught that it is by the power of the Holy Ghost

 that we shall test all things.

Yea, it is by the gift of the Holy Ghost that we shall prove all things.

And it is by the unspeakable gift of the Holy Ghost

that all things shall be made know.

 Yea, all things shall become written in us as upon a book.

70)  But behold, you have declared that to test your words by this great gift shall be accounted unto us as sin and for unrighteousness.

Yea, you have condemned us for importuning the Lord, saying that we must not seek a confirmation of anything that has already been spoken by the prophet of God.

71)  But I ask you, what shall we do with all that has been spoken by his prophets before you?

If you are truly the prophet of God in our day, and if you possess the keys of the priesthood and of the kingdom, then do you also suggest that the archives be broken and the records be burned and melted down?

Yea, shall we throw out the revelations of God to His prophets because you have seen an angel?

Is this truly the will of the Lord?

72)  And what shall they do who walk upon the Way and speak with angels daily?

Have the angels locked the doors that give upon the Way as you have locked the doors of the temple?

Or does God no longer wish His children to come unto Him.

Does He have no time for us now?

Does He no longer welcome us into His presence?

And if this is so, then what is the purpose of this existence?

Shall you do away with the very creation because you have seen an angel?

73)  You declare that the Lord has conferred upon you a new order of priesthood and you deny the High Place and the ordinances thereof to all but they whom you authorize with this order.

But tell me, Tucantor, have you received His commission?

74)  And Tucantor answered me, saying;

75)  Behold, as I sat in the temple, an angel appeared to me and taught me concerning the ways of the Lord.

And he did teach me that we have all been misled.

Yea, we have been all these generations bound up in error.

For, we have believed a doctrine that has gone contrary to the gospel as it was given unto our fathers.

Yea, we have left the path of truth to go down a road that leads into oblivion.

76)  Set aside all that you have learned of men and listen to me, for I speak the words of God.

There is one authority given of heaven whereby the ordinances of salvation may be delivered unto the children of men.

And this authority is the priesthood.

By it and through it men speak and act in the name of God and only in this way may we avail ourselves of the ordinances and performances required by the Lord for salvation’s sake.

Surely, He will not admit anyone into His kingdom who has not received the ordinances
of the priesthood.

77)  And He has revealed through this same angel that, although many men might possess this authority, they shall nevertheless be governed by that one in whom the Lord shall invest the keys thereof.

And none shall have more authority than the anointed of God.

Wherefore, it is reasonable that when the prophet of God shall receive a doctrine by revelation, he is not to be questioned in it, neither by men, nor by spirit.

78)  For, the Gifts of the Spirit are good and they are useful, but they do not supersede the priesthood.

And shall one man have a gift and do away with the authority given to the anointed of God?

I say unto you, Nay, for this is confusion.

Yet have we been confused all these generations.

For, we have been taught that even Christ Himself may not speak without our rushing out to test His words by this Holy Ghost.

And shall the Holy Ghost, which is but a spirit, possess more authority than God, who is both body and spirit?

79)  And shall one man’s gift overcome another’s.

It has been revealed unto me that one man may have a gift and it may only be useful until it seeks to make conquest of the power and authority of the priesthood.

And this priesthood God gives in orders and He sets apart His chosen to govern it on earth, even as He governs it in heaven.

And behold, at the head of the orders of the priesthood, God places His anointed.

For, God’s house is a house of order and there is no confusion in it.

80)  Now, it is certain that they who act against the word and will of God, as it is revealed by Him to His servants the prophets, shall not enjoy the same blessings as they who obey His commandments.

And surely, they shall not go up into the House of the Lord if they will not obey His commandments.

Wherefore, it has been revealed unto me by the angel that only they who have proven themselves loyal to the commandments of God ought to enter into the holy halls of His home.

It is to keep out the filthiness of the world that the doors of the High Place are closed to all but the righteous.

81)  Wherefore, you were mistaken Mor Honayah when you said that the doors of the temple were unjustly barred before you.

For, they are only locked to those who lack authority to go up thither.

And did you come unto the high priest of this city to seek this priesthood?

I say unto you Nay. The word and the will of God is not important to you.

But you did come straight up unto the High Place as if it was your own house to do with as you will.

82)  And behold, you lied when you said that armed men assailed you.

For, it is you who assailed the House of God.

Those servants of the Lord whom He placed to guard the High Place intended no injury upon you, but can you claim the same?

I say unto you, Nay.

You came to do harm and injury upon the Lord in His own house.

Do not judge the servants of the Lord for their loyalty and for their desire to preserve that
which is precious.

83)  And after this manner did the high priest of Mentinah speak in the temple of Eve where we found him.

And the people were all struck dumb, not by any power of heaven or of earth, but by amazement.

For, never had they heard such doctrine.

But they had allowed this to take place in their own city and right under their own eaves.

Wherefore, they were amazed at the words of their high priest.

84)  And there was one man whose name was Micah, and he cried out to the people, saying;

85)  Let us call upon the Council of the City to hear this matter.

For surely these are strange doctrines and not like anything that we have heard or been taught.

86)  And I answered him, saying;

87)  A good thought.

Yea, that would be right, according to the laws and traditions of the people of this city.

But behold, the high priest has released the Council and has not called for a new one.

Who then shall hear the case?

88)  And the people cried out in one voice, yea, the common voice of the people was heard on the Mountain of the Lord’s House and it echoed down the streets and alleyways of Mentinah.

And they cried out in one accord that they did not sustain the high priest.

89)  And they took him and stripped him of the shawl and removed from him the seat of high priest.

And he walked through the midst of them in his pride even unto his own house.

And when he had reached his own house he did turn again and address the people, saying;

90)  Behold, I am still high priest in this city.

For, I did receive the anointing of God.

I did not become high priest upon your appointment, but under the hands of an angel.

Wherefore, how can you think to remove from me what has been given by God?

And behold, they who remain loyal to me shall labor under my direction day by day until

I sit once again to judge this city and its people.

Wherefore, think not that by the common consent of this people that I have lost ought because of you.

91)  And none of the ordinances performed for any reason by any person in this city, nay, behold by anyone in the whole land, shall be acceptable to the Lord until the people do uphold the right by which they seek to act in His holy name.

And when they do that, He will once again accept their sacrifice.

Until then, you shall all labor under the condemnation of God, a condemnation which shall not be lifted by the common consent of the wicked.

92)  And he went within his house and was high priest no more.

Part XIV MorHonayah; Men Receive The Priesthood By Orders And The Lords Commission By The Ordinances

Greetings all my relations,

It is a great day to be able to study these very important detailed words of scripture,

that are very precious and plain to the understanding and lighten our hearts and minds,

from the prophet and now… angel Moroni (Morhonayah),

 Speaking words from the dust of the past that are so pertenant for our modern day…

These words written by one of our hero ancestors, whom we honor…

may help us to solve many of the complex problems found in our Gentile (Babylon)

World, Nation, Society and Churches.

We need to use the Nemenhah teachings as a model and a pattern, and then seek for a conformation of the Spirit and the guidence…to move forward toward building a Zion People and Nation, and be able to recieve The Kingdom of our Lord and The blessings of our Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother…in preparation for Their Chosen Son’s Second Comming… Our Lord Jesus Christ, The King of Zion, Who rules the Nations with an Iron Rod…in this 1000 year millenium… 

And His Word Shall Go Forth from Jerusalem and His Law From Zion…

The Old Testament Prophet Micah says…

Micah 4:2

And it will come about in the last days That the mountain of the house of the LORD Will be established as the chief of the mountains.

It will be raised above the hills, And the peoples will stream to it.

2Many nations will come and say, “Come and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD And to the house of the God of Jacob,

That He may teach us about His ways And that we may walk in His paths.

For from Zion will go forth the law,

Even the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

3And He will judge between many peoples

And render decisions for mighty, distant nations.

Then they will hammer their swords into plowshares

And their spears into pruning hooks;

Nation will not lift up sword against nation,

And never again will they train for war.… Old Testament

cj note: It looks like in the last days, when the Lord gets here, we will do just as the people of Ammon did, they buried their weapons of war. The account is written about in the Book of Mormon.

The people of Ammon, The Anti-Nephi Lehies, The People of God, The Nemenhah…——————————————————————————————————————-

 The Volumes of Scripture Now Knowm as The Nemenhah Sacred Records are so crucial to study, learn and model ourselves after…as are all volumes of holy scripture.

THE WAYS AND CUSTOMS OF THE AMMONAYAH… 

The words of MorHonayah… The Sacred Records of our ancestors  help us to solve today’s problems and empower us to solve them in a very sacred manor. Prayer and fasting, using Wayaykin and Ceremony… The High Place (Temple) is the Core and Center, of our being

The Principles and covenants taught to us in the ordinances our guiding light along with our kindred dead, angels and heavenly beings coming to teach us from loftier realms…On The Way…

And they were taught from on high, on The Way… just like our ancestors the Nemenhah.——————————————————————————————————  

 The Record of MorHonayah (Moroni)

The Son of Mormon

Vol 4:  Chapter Fourteen;

1) Now, it has been written in another place that, whereas men receive the priesthood by orders and His commission by the ordinances,

women have received already that great gift wherewith the Mother did bless them.

But still, even though they are empowered from before the foundation of the world, if they will do the works of the Peacemaker they will also work in His commission under those principles whereby He does govern His creation.

2) And He has decreed that His creation shall operate upon certain laws

and none may circumvent them.

Wherefore, there is an order of priesthood given unto men whereby,

if they receive the commission of Christ,

they may do even the work and will

of the Creator of heaven and earth.

And if women receive also His commission,

they may also do this same work.

3) And there is an order of the priesthood which is preparatory,

the beginning of faith,

and another which it fulfills and finishes,

the culmination of faith.

And the preparatory priesthood is called after Levi,

that son of Israel of old.

And it is by and through this priesthood that Aaron did minister unto Moses and unto the
people.

4) And behold, the ordinances and covenants of this priesthood have for their purpose to bring the heart and the intention of the man to that point where he may set aside the things of the world and take up spiritual things.

Yea, because of the preparation whereby the Lord does prepare the man,

through this order of the priesthood,

the man is able to lay down the natural man and step out of the telestial world.

Indeed, by the ordinances and the covenants of this priesthood,

 the man may rend the veil that separates him from the Way.

5) This order of priesthood has for its purpose to prepare and to teach the man to live the law of the gospel and of sacrifice.

Yea, it is by this order that men take up that more precious part

which has been given to all women.

Yea, by this order of priesthood does he learn to sacrifice for others and to serve others,
placing their needs above his own.

Yea, by this priesthood, when he has received the commission of the Creator and Peacemaker, he may move the mountain of his own soul and make a straight path for his spirit.

And the ordinances of the Order of Levi are the teaching and preaching of the peaceable things of the kingdom, baptism, the administration of the emblems ofthe Lord’s Sacrifice, the purification of the Ammonihah, prayer, fasting, and so forth.

7)  And all men who have good intention

and who have received through revelation and through the Holy Ghost

the commission of God are entitled to seek this right of priesthood.

Yea, and they enter into it with a covenant.

And this is the nature of the covenant:

8)  Every man who takes up this covenant, having been commissioned and called of God, even as Aaron was called of God, shall come unto one who has also received the Lord’s commission and relate the revelation unto that person.

And that person shall take them and lay hands upon them and, saying the person’s name
plainly, they shall pronounce a blessing and confer this order of priesthood saying:

9)  By the commission I have received of the Lord,

I confer upon you the Priesthood after the Order of Levi.

You shall hereafter be known as a priest and teacher of this order and I do this in the name of the Peacemaker.

10)  Now I would that all should take note of how this ordinance is performed.

For, the commission of the Lord is always clearly uttered when the order of the priesthood is conferred.

And the purpose of the calling is also clearly stated.

And when the Spirit has made an end of all that shall be said in the blessing,

it is finished in the name of the Lord.

11)  This is the pattern

 and though our language may all be different,

and even all that must be said in the prayer and the blessing may all be different,

yet shall a simple pattern always be followed.

This is done so that all creation might

know by whose word and by whose commission you speak

and by whose word and will you do expect the creation to respond.

12)  Now, when women are called unto this work, the order of this priesthood is not conferred upon them, for they work in the covenant under that which the Mother has already conferred.

Wherefore, how may we confer ought else?

And behold, does the Lord work against His own mother?

Or does He place Himself above Her in anything?

I say unto you, He does not.

For, He is the same who commanded all people to honor their father and their mother, that their days may long upon the land the Lord their God has given them.

Wherefore, how then shall we?

Behold, let us emulate the Lord.

13)  But when a woman shall request this priesthood, she shall also go unto one who has already received it and she shall relate how that she has received the commission of the Lord by revelation.

Then she shall be taken and she shall be introduced into this order by anordinance also, except that the Order of Levi shall not be conferred upon her, but she is ordained to that Order.

Rather, she is ordained with an ordinance.

And that person shall take her and lay hands upon her and, saying her name plainly, shall pronounce a blessing and ordain her unto this priesthood saying:

By the commission I have received of the Lord, I ordain you according to the Order of Levi.

You shall hereafter be known as a priest and teacher of this order and I do this in the name of the Peacemaker.

15)  And they who become priests and teachers after this order of priesthood assist the high priest in all things.

Yea, they do keep the synagogue and they do teach the people.

And they do keep peace in the community, for they work under the commission of the Peacemaker.

And it is their work to prepare the hearts of all men and women to make a sacred sacrifice for the sake of all living and for the Lord.

16)  And behold, that order of priesthood which is the finisher and culmination of faith is called the Order of the Son of God.

And it is by and through this priesthood that Moses did stand in the presence of the
Peacemaker Himself and receive instruction of Him.

Yea, it is by this priesthood that the man or the woman, having received the commission of the Lord, may walk upon the Way and be prepared in the spirit.

17)  And behold, the ordinances and covenants of this priesthood have for their purpose to bring the heart

and the intention of the man to that point where he may find a perfect stillness,

that he might walk upon the Way and be instructed more fully in all good things.

Yea, because of the culmination whereby the Lord does finish the man,

through this order of the priesthood,

the man is able to stand at the very veil of the Celestial World and cast it down.

Or, in other words, he is able to discern the veil in himself and rend it from the top thereof even to the bottom thereof, and from the bottom thereof even to the top thereof.

Indeed, by the ordinances and the covenants of this priesthood, the man may rend the veil that separates him from the Mother and from the Father.

18)  This order of priesthood has for its purpose to prepare and to teach the man to live the law of the chastity and of consecration.

Yea, it is by this order that men are able to become partakers of that endowment of
power that only Mothers and Fathers in Heaven may possess.

Yea, by this order of priesthood does he learn the nature of creation

and the duality of all things 

that he is not without the woman and the woman is not with him,

in the Lord.

Yea, by this priesthood,

when he has received the commission of the Creator and Peacemaker,

he may learn to act and not be acted upon.

19)  And the ordinances of the Order of the Son of God are the teaching and preaching of the peaceable things of the kingdom,

and the ordinances of the High Place.

20)  And all men who have good intention and who have received through revelation and through the Holy Ghost the commission of God are also entitled to seek this right of priesthood.

Yea, and they enter into it with a covenant.

And this is the nature of the covenant:

21)  Every man who takes up this covenant, having been commissioned and called of God, even as Aaron was called of God, shall come unto one who has also received the Lord’s commission and relate the revelation unto that person, and shall pledge his willingness to serve God all the days of his life.

And that person
shall take them and lay hands upon them

and saying the person’s name plainly

they shall pronounce a blessing and confer this order of priesthood saying:

22)  By the commission I have received of the Lord,

I confer upon you the Priesthood after the Order of the Son of God.

You shall hereafter be known as a high priest and Peli of this order and I do this in the name of the Peacemaker.

23)  Now I would that all should also take note of how this ordinance is performed.

For, the commission of the Lord is always clearly uttered when the order of the priesthood is conferred.

And the purpose of the calling is also clearly stated.

And when the Spirit has made an end of all that shall be said in the blessing,
it is finished in the name of the Lord.

24)  This is the pattern and, though our language may all bedifferent, and even all that must be said in the prayer and the blessing may all be different,

yet shall a simple pattern always be followed.

And again, all creation shall know by whose word and by whose commission you speak and by whose word and will you do expect the creation to respond.

25)  Now, when women are called unto this work, the order of this priesthood is not conferred upon them, for they work in the covenant under that which the Mother has already conferred.

26)  But when any woman shall request this priesthood, she shall also go unto one who has already received it and she shall relate how that she has received the commission of the Lord by revelation and that she is determined to serve Him in all things.

Then she shall be taken and she shall be introduced into this order by an ordinance also, except that the Order of the Son of God shall not be conferred upon her.

Rather, she is ordained unto it with an ordinance.

And that person shall take her and lay hands upon her and, saying her name plainly,

they shall pronounce a blessing and ordain her unto this priesthood saying:

27)  By the commission I have received of the Lord, I ordain you according to the Order of the Son of God.

You shall hereafter be known as a high priest and Peli of this order

and I do this in the name of the Peacemaker.

28)  And they who become high priests and Peli after this order of priesthood assist the Lord and the Councils in all things, just as they who become priests and teachers assist the high priests and Peli.

Yea, they do keep the High Place and the archives, and they do teach the people.

And they also do keep peace in the community, for they too work under the commission of the Peacemaker.

And it is their work to prepare the hearts of all men and women to stand in the very presence of the Mother and of the Father and receive of them the fullness.

29)  And they shall not seek this honor, or in other words, they shall not take up to speak and act in the name of the Lord God, unless they have received of Him the commission to do so.

Wherefore, if anyone has a desire to serve Him, they are called to the work by Him.

And the right of priesthood is that commission which He gives to them who make this covenant.

By revelation He does commission them.

By revelation He does direct them.

Yea, by revelation He does govern His Church.

And behold, let none believe that they possess anything of the Lord merely because they have had hands laid on them and because they have had this order conveyed upon them, or that order conferred.

For there is no ordination that has any merit if not by the commission of He who is the author of them.

And, if the Peacemaker gives not the commission, let no man or woman think that they have any right to priesthood.

31)  Behold, the Nemenhah do not hold themselves to be more worthy of this honor than any other people.

The honor is that the Lord does teach us the manner by which the Universe does function.

And the power of the priesthood is a part of it.

For all they who do learn to act in this power do exercise great faith upon
the matter of creation.

 And, having the commission of the Creator,

the matter does recognize in the voice of His servants

that voice which did command them in the beginning.

32)  And being satisfied with that covenant by which they were first brought together, they do combine again to do the work of Him who created the worlds.

It is by this power that the Brother of Jared caused mountains to move out of the way, that the people of God might pass by them.

33)  For the voice of the Creator is powerful because it is the voice of faith and of love and the elements do respond to His voice.

 Wherefore, that servant of the Lord who, having His commission,

does speak and act in His name

invokes that first day of creation

and once again the matter responds

to the voice of the Master.

And it is the same today as it was in that very first day,

for all things are as one day to the Lord

and also to that which He did create.

Wherefore, how shall today be any different than in that day when
He did command that the elements form themselves and that they should begin to fulfill the covenant that He made with the Father and with the Holy Ghost?

And how can we say that the world does differ ought from that moment

when the Mother did put the breath of life into all living things?

34)  And this is the thing that the servant of the Lord must understand.

For, when His servants do speak and act in His name,

the elements obey.

Wherefore, it is written, take not the Lord’s name in vain.

For the Lord God will not hold you harmless

if you take His name in vain.

35)  And if a man, speaking in the name of God,

but having not His commission, does bestow upon another the priesthood, what then?

Shall there be any priesthood? I say unto you, Nay.

36)  And if a man, acting in the name of Christ,

but having not His commission, does prophesy, what then?

Shall it become scripture? Again, I say unto you, Nay.

37)  And shall the covenants of God be entered into without His commission?

Shall anyone go up to the High Place and there perform the ordinances

without that He has made known unto them His will?

And, because a man say in his arrogance;

This day I have an endowment from the Lord.

Shall there be any
power in the endowment? Nay!

38)  And shall any man declare to the elements his own election?

Shall he testify to the wind, then, that he has made his calling and election sure?

Shall a priesthood that he has made of clay convey such power to the sons of men?

Do not believe it.

39)  Behold, God will not justify as many as do the same.

For behold, He does give His commission to all them that seek it.

Yea, every man and every woman who seeks His holy face, shall indeed see it

and He shall give unto them an endowment of power

such as only heavenly beings possess.

40)  And He shall declare your election.

Yea, He shall give unto you the Holy Ghost

and all things shall come back to your remembrance.

Then shall He testify to the wind

that He has made your calling and election sure.

Surely, the power of the Creator,

yea, even that priesthood given unto him of the Father and the Mother of our spirits,

shall convey priesthood to them that seek Him.

Behold, this you may believe.

41)  And He shall meet you when you go up to the High Place

if you wait upon His word. 

Surely, He shall reveal unto you His will

and He will instruct you in all things.

42)  And men and women shall speak words of peace

as they are moved upon by the Holy Ghost.

And their children shall remember the words which they speak to gather

them and make them their own.

And is this not scripture?

43)  And men and women shall serve their neighbor in all the ordinances of the synagogue and also the High Place and the work they do shall be the Lord’s work,

for He shall have instructed them.

And when He has given His commission, they shall receive the priesthood

after the orders that pertain thereto and according to the purpose of the Lord

which appertains there unto. And with His commission,

they shall speak and act in His holy name

and He shall justify and remember them and all their works on His behalf.

For they shall be His servants and shall He not justify His own?

44)  For you may believe it,

the Lord does delight in calling His servants

and He does give them power,

both pertaining to things of this life and this world,

as well as lives and worlds without end.

And He rejoices with all they that do take up His work and obey His will.

And, seeking His commission, even after that
they have received His priesthood and have been ordained unto an holy calling,

they shall act and the creation shall react according to that commandment it received of Him so long ago.

Yea, they shall act and yet be not acted upon, worlds without end.

45)  And herein is the thing in which Pharaoh did err.

Behold, he claimed the right of his fathers

to obtain knowledge of all things

and sit upon the right hand of God.

And he was not an evil man, nay, nor did he exercise evil upon his people.

But he did consider that because he was a son of Noah that he could lay
claim to that priesthood given to his fathers.

But he sought not the commission of the Lord before laying
claim to the work of his fathers.

46)  And, because he would not uphold the Law of Chastity, but did justify his grandfather in the thing wherewith he did dishonor unto Noah, it cannot be that he understood the meaning and the significance of the laws and commandments of God.

47)  And having no understanding of such things, he cannothave had the commission ofthe Lord in the thing that he sought.

Wherefore, because of a heritage and a tradition of unrighteousness,

he preserved a curse in the land.

Yea, he preserved a sore curse.

For by the tradition which he did justify,

 none could come to a knowledge of the ordinances of the High Place,

and none could receive the Lord’s commission.

Wherefore, he was of a lineage that had not right of priesthood, because he knew not that the right passes not from father unto son because of flesh and blood, but because the work and will of the Lord is in the teaching of the father unto his son.

48)  Yea, Pharoah believed that, because Noah received his priesthood from his fathers, he ought to possess the same right because of the blood that flowed in him.

For Pharoah was of that same lineage whereby Noah the prophet did trace his generation to Adam our father.

49)  But behold, it is not flesh and it is not blood that conveys this right unto men,

but the commission of Him who created us.

Wherefore, it is not the blood of Hagoth, nor of Ougou, nor of Nephi or Lehi, or Joseph
or Jacob, nay, nor even of Abraham or of Adam, that gives right of priesthood.

We do not deceive ourselves in this.

For, we know that God does delight in speaking unto them

that will call upon His name and seek His face.

Wherefore, He employs no steward there, but prefers that we come unto him and not unto our forefathers.

50)  Yea, He does entreat us to come unto Him.

 That He gives to us the duties and ordinances of the priesthood is certain.

But such things are not the priesthood,

nay, it does not define it.

For in all, such things do only draw our minds to ponder His works, and our hearts to seek communion with Him.

Yea, the works and ordinances of the priesthood

do place our feet upon a good road,

a straight path,

and surely we shall see His face and we shall be like Him.

But it shall be by walking that road that we do achieve such things.

Behold, the ordinances do not save us.

It is by living the principles that such things teach us
that conveys us into the presence of the Lord.

Part XIII MorHonayah; Emerging Out Of This Telestial Into A Terrestrial Sphere That We May Be More Fully Instructed By Angels

Greetings all my relations,

It is such a blessing to be able to meet with you all, and have this sacred talk …

And that we would walk in a sacred manor as taught to us on The Way by our Nemenhah ancestors and other just men and women made perfect in Christ.

Emulating the kind of acts, as taught to us, by The Lord Himself, recorded in The New Testament and other Volumes of Scriptures…

What are we to do?

What Jesus would do if He was here? …standing right next to you?

ASK YOURSELF WWJD?

WWJD=What Would Jesus Do? Let’s Pray for His Will…In The Circle (hoop)

The High Place on The Way and meet together as one people in heart and mind and continue on the road to Zion!

I have dedicated this website to the study of The Gospel of Jesus Christ…

Behold, this is the Gospel of Jesus Christ,

that we should all come unto the knowledge of the Son,

and unto His wisdom,

and His stature as a son of God.

Yea, this is the will of the Lord 

that all might emerge out of what we now are,

into that which we must become,

if we are to be the sons and daughters of God

in more than mere words only.

Today’s message speaks to us from out of the dust and sands of time…

just as was prophesied by Nephi, in the Book of Mormon…

From The Prophet MorHonayah (The Angel Maroni ) to the discovery of more records.

The Prophet Moroni’s very own family history records now called in The Sacred Records of The Nemenhah.

Let’s begin today’s study.

Vol 4: Chapter 13

Chapter Thirteen
1)  It is written that Noah did plant for himself a vineyard, for he was an husbandman. And he did harvest the fruit of his vine and he did make of it pure wine.

And when he did drink of his wine he became drunken with it and he went into his tabernacle for to sleep.

2)  And behold, his son Ham did enter into the tent and he did see his father’s nakedness. And when he had done this thing, he did return out ofthe tent.

And when his brethren discovered the act, they did the opposite of their brother Ham and they did walk with their father’s raiment upon their shoulders, being chaste.

Yea, they obtained all the teaching of their father and they were priests and prophets to their people.

3)  And Noah did curse his son Ham and he was denied the thing that is most to be desired, even that which allows a man to gain access to heavenly beings

and to emerge from out of this clay and set aside the beast.

For, this is that heritage which might have been sufficient to correct in Ham that aberration of character which led him into unnatural love.

But Ham, being caught up in the carnal lust of his heart, knew not what he had lost.

4)  And Pharoah, his grandson, though he was reported to be a righteous man and a righteous king, nevertheless he did preserve a heritage of wickedness because of that thing of his father’s that he chose to continue.

Surely he did no injury to his fellowman.

But he was caught up in the carnality to which his grandfather fell prey.

Behold, this is the curse that was preserved by Pharoah and by Egyptus,

for through them this same curse continued.

5)  And behold, the scriptures assure us that Pharoah desired what he thought to be the right of priesthood, but he was denied because of the curse which he had helped to preserve.

And all his descendents who would not repent of this evil, were also denied the commission of the Lord.

6)  For, it is only through the bonding together of the unique endowment of power of the mother and of the father that we may hope to become as our Father and Mother in Heaven.

And it is only by emerging out of this telestial into a terrestrial sphere that we may be more fully instructed by Angels, the spirits of just men and women made perfect, and by the Lord Himself.

7)  And behold, it would have been for Pharoah just as it is for any man.

If we want to become like our Lord, then we must do what he does.

Yea, we must receive of Him the commission to do His work and His will,

subduing the flesh.

Verily, this is priesthood.

But we are commissioned to do the Lord’s work only upon the principle of revelation by and through the unspeakable gift of the Holy Ghost.

8)  Wherefore, because Pharoah took up again the sin of his fathers, and also of Egyptus, the Lord denied him His commission and he had no right of priesthood.

And, though he ruled his people well and was a righteous king,

yet he subdued not his own flesh.

In this he did also deny the Lord’s commission to his whole generation and his entire nation. 

9)  Behold, this is the Gospel of Jesus Christ,

that we should all come unto the knowledge of the Son,

and unto His wisdom,

and His stature as a son of God.

Yea, this is the will of the Lord

– that all might emerge out of what we now are

into that which we must become,

if we are to be the sons and daughters of God

in more than mere words only.

————————————————————————————————

Yea, and the commission of the Lord is priesthood.

10)  He may give unto us authority to convey this gospel to all the world and to confer priesthood upon everyone.

But without the commission received by the gift of revelation,

the conferring of priesthood is as the sound of a drum,

beautiful but not lasting.

And when the sound of the drumbeat is gone,

what is left of priesthood but memory.

11)  Behold, it is also written of another Noah who was a King among the Nephites.

And he did confer priesthoods upon his favorites.

And behold, even though they claimed the priesthood and the authority of
God, they did commit whoredoms in the sight of the people.

12)  Wherefore, is priesthood in the conferring?

Or is it in ordination that the right of priesthood is transmitted unto men?

I say unto you, Nay.

For there was one among them whom the Lord took to Himself after that he had repented.

Yea, unto Alma the Lord did reveal Himself and He did give him His commission.

Then had Alma priesthood indeed, not by the word and will of a king, but by the word and will of God.

13)  Observe these two Noahs and remember the instruction.

For they being dead do continue to teach us still.

14)  Noah, our father of old, conveyed unto his righteous sons all that he could, but they did receive of the Lord according to their own commitment.

Noah could not have bestowed anything upon that son who sinned in his heart.

15)  Noah, the wicked Nephite king conveyed all that he could of his own unto those whom he chose, but they could receive nothing of the Lord because of their lack of commitment to His will.

King Noah could bestow nothing lasting and eternal upon any man, though he possessed all the authority of a kingdom.

16)  Oh man!

Never think yourself too big.

Puff not yourself up in the pride of your heart!

Do you think that you can lay hands upon any person and convey unto them that which is not yours to convey?

Know that the laying on of hands is only the physical token of the priesthood.

But nothing at all is conveyed except by and through the commission received directly from the Peacemaker by personal revelation. 

17)  Wherefore, we may perform the ordinances but they are hollow without revelation.

Yea, we may preach and teach, but our words are false if we are not on the Lords errand and under His commission.

And we may confer upon men the priesthood, but only in empty words and meaningless phrases without the direction of the Lord. 

And we may wash and anoint, but for what purpose?

We are filthy still without the word and will of the Lord.

And shall we stand together and declare ourselves the Friends of Christ and that our calling is made sure?

Behold, I say unto you,

Not without that the Lord Himself does stand up to declare it with us.

18)  All else is dross.

Yea, I speak clearly that you might understand clearly.

If anyone teaches ought of priesthoods and authorities more than these things,

they instruct in vanities.

Yea, they utter falsehoods.

Their teaching is a Jaguar woven in cloth.

19)  Let not language determine what is priesthood and what is not. Priesthood is notthe man. Nay, nor is it his calling or his station.

It is the commission of Christ.

And if a man has received the commission of Christ and the Holy Ghost confirms,

then you may know with a surety that it is done unto him by revelation.

And if the commission has been received by revelation, then let that man be ordained, for he possesses priesthood already.

Yea, he is a priest unto his God, wherefore, let him be ordained.

20)  And it is according to the words of Christ which we did receive of Him directly when He did visit the Nemenhah in the flesh,

that all women have received the commission of the Mother.

They too have priesthood already, wherefore, let them be called and ordained by the laying on of hands as a token of their covenant.

Let them administer in all things wherein the Holy Ghost does direct.

21)  And behold, they may also receive the commission of the Peacemaker.

Yea, and when they do, they are doubly blessed.

Let them be administered to with an ordinance, and ordained and sustained and supported in their calling.

22)  Or shall we not all rejoice that the Lord does see fit to visit His people in righteousness?

Shall we not raise our voices in thanksgiving and in praise?

Shall we not be as happy and satisfied with the word

and will of God that calls upon a woman to do His will,

even as happy as we find ourselves to discover that He has called upon

any man to administer for Him the works of salvation?

Shall not both bring joy to us?

Does not one testify of the goodness of God as well as the other?

Part XII The Record of MorHonayah; The covenant that the Lord made with the Father and with the Holy Ghost

Greetings all my relations,

Thank you for meeting here with us today.

We are studying the Sacred Records of The Nemenhah

Vol 4: The Record of MorHonayah

Chapter Twelve

 And this became a custom with us, to celebrate the covenant that the Lord made with the Father and with the Holy Ghost, every time we meet for any reason.

16)  Yea, when we gather to plant, we celebrate this sacrament, as also when we harvest. And when we build a house or a barn, we celebrate this sacrament.

And when we meet a stranger on our way, we pause with them and welcome them, and we celebrate with them this sacrament.

And behold, when any member of our family comes or goes away, we take time to celebrate this sacrament with them when they arrive from a journey or before the depart from us.

17)  And this we do in order that we may keep in our remembrance always that thing which the Lord has done for us.

 And we do it also that we may always have His spirit with us,

or in other words,

that because we remember Him in all that we do,

we might become in all ways like unto Him and take upon ourselves

 and cultivate in ourselves that spirit

where with He did teach us to govern our lives.

18)  But this is not all.

When we do this, keeping the covenant which He made with the Father and with the Holy Ghost, we are made partakers of that covenant also.

Therefore, if we have His spirit to be with us, and if we do govern ourselves by that spirit which we have received of Him, we shall also be assured of the covenant relationship with the Father and with the Holy Ghost that He also enjoys.

19)  For behold, it is by the power of the Father

that we have our being.

Yea, and because of the covenant which He made with the Mother,

we have our lives

and we are also partakers of that covenant.

And it is by the power of the Holy Ghost

that all things may be brought to our remembrance

and be confirmed in us.

Yea, by the power of the Holy Ghost

We may become like our Father and Mother in Heaven.

And it is because of the atonement which was accomplished by the Lord,

Even the Peacemaker, that we may come into communion with Heavenly Beings.

Wherefore, we do participate as often as we can make excuse to
do so in that covenant which they made together.

cj note; How awsome is that? 

 Vol 4: The Record of MorHonayah

Chapter Twelve

1) And when the people had heard the words of the Council, they did of their own will divide themselves equitably and some stayed in Mentinah and others did remove a day’s journey from it and establish a new city.

And this new city was also larger than that which the people had decided was the limit which the earth could bear in that place and others did continue on to another place to establish their home.

And thus they did until all the people had moved southward in large enough intervals that they would not press too greatly upon the land and over run her ability to provide for them.

2) And even our own Elat Kowat became too large and my son did take his family and several of the young men into the north to make a community of their own.

For, he desired that his wife and children should live yet a little closer to the Nemenhah of Nespelhem.

3) And behold, the Nemenhah of my own city desired that I be called to be the high priest and to preside over them in their ordinances and celebrations. But I was still the high priest of Mentinah and could not do duty to both at once.

And my own city pressed me and desired me to serve in my own home and not go upon the road so often to Mentinah to preside in the High Place there.

4)  For, the Nemenhah of Elat Kowat had built the High Place in our own city and they had many synagogues also wherein they did study the books and the records.

And they did meet together often in Councils established by the people.

Yea, in all ways, the city of Elat Kowat had become a city exactly as Mentinah,
with all the same goings on, and the people declared their desire that I sit in the seat of high priest of the city.

5)  And the Council of Elat Kowat did send an epistle unto the Council of Mentinah desiring them to release me from the seat of high priest,

that I might more fully serve my own city.

6)  And behold, the Council of Mentinah did take up the matter

and prayerfully consider it.

And after much debate, the Council decided that I was not to be constrained to serve

them for any reason, lest I be driven by such folly to take the course of Heinmet and resign the seat.

7)  Wherefore, I was released from the seat of high priest of the City of Mentinah and my own city called me to preside.

And I did become the high priest of Elak Kowat and I did no longer spend my time traveling to and from the City of Mentinah.

8)  And behold, I did enjoy greater liberty than I had while laboring for the City of Mentinah and it was my pleasure to use that time in teaching the men and women of my own city.

For, many of the men were those Nephites who had come from out of the Nephite and Lamanite war and they had need of much counsel.

Wherefore, I now had much more time to dedicate to their service.

9)  And Elak Kowat did grow and prosper, and many settlements did also grow up around it and we did spread ourselves upon the land north of the City of Mentinah.

10)  And I did call and set up high priests unto all the settlements, which was a thing that had not been done very often.

For, the high priest of Mentinah did heretofore preside over all matters spiritual for all the cities round about the Valley of Menintah, but it was very difficult for the cities to receive of the high priest all that they needed.

11)  And this was also the case with the settlements that sprang up in the north part of the valley.

Wherefore, rather than that they should come always unto me in Elat Kowat for all their needs, I did establish high priests for them in their Lodges.

12)  And I did cause that they should call teachers and priests to instruct in the synagogues and to administer the ordinances of baptism

and also the sacrament of the Lord’s supper unto the people.

Now, these are they whom we call Peli.

And they are men or women whom the community

sees are of good heart and
pure intention.

And their names are given unto the high priest of the city for consideration for callings in the administration of such things.

Wherefore, when a teacher or priest is needed for any of the synagogues, the high priest takes up the list of names which the Council has provided and inquires of the Lord as to who should be called.

And, if the list contains not the name of that person whom the Lord sees fit to install, by the word of His commission unto the high priest,

then the name of the candidate is given to the high priest through revelation.

13)  But behold, any person of good intention may officiate in the administration of the ordinances of baptism and of the sacrament of the Lord’s supper.

And any person of good intention is equal to the task of leading the instruction of the people.

For, they all do instruct their own children in their homes constantly and this does prepare all the Nemenhah to become teachers and priests.

14)  And those ordinances which are done only in the home,

such as the blessing and naming of children,

blessing of the sick and the afflicted,

the bestowal of the blessing whereby the people are reminded to receive the Holy Ghost.

The ordinances of the High Place and all those things

that must be taught at home to prepare for them.

Behold, all these things are administered by the parents of children or

by the Peli, as each family shall choose and call for their edification.

15)  And behold, the Nemenhah of Nespelhem did begin to administer the bread and wine of the Lord’s supper every time they met together to be instructed of the teachers and priests.

And this became a custom with us, to celebrate the covenant that the Lord made with the Father and with the Holy Ghost, every time we meet for any reason.

16)  Yea, when we gather to plant, we celebrate this sacrament, as also when we harvest. And when we build a house or a barn, we celebrate this sacrament.

And when we meet a stranger on our way, we pause with them and welcome them, and we celebrate with them this sacrament.

And behold, when any member of our family comes or goes away, we take time to celebrate this sacrament with them when they arrive from a journey or before the depart from us.

17)  And this we do in order that we may keep in our remembrance always that thing which the Lord has done for us.

 And we do it also that we may always have His spirit with us,

or in other words,

that because we remember Him in all that we do,

we might become in all ways like unto Him and take upon ourselves

 and cultivate in ourselves that spirit

where with He did teach us to govern our lives.

18)  But this is not all.

When we do this, keeping the covenant which He made with the Father and with the Holy Ghost, we are made partakers of that covenant also.

Therefore, if we have His spirit to be with us, and if we do govern ourselves by that spirit which we have received of Him, we shall also be assured of the covenant relationship with the Father and with the Holy Ghost that He also enjoys.

19)  For behold, it is by the power of the Father that we have our being.

Yea, and because of the covenant which He made with the Mother,

we have our lives and we are also partakers of that covenant.

And it is by the power of the Holy Ghost that all things may be brought to our remembrance and be confirmed in us.

Yea, by the power of the Holy Ghost

We may become like our Father and Mother in Heaven.

And it is because of the atonement which was accomplished by the Lord,

 Even the Peacemaker, that we may come into communion with Heavenly Beings.

Wherefore, we do participate as often as we can make excuse to
do so in that covenant which they made together.

20)  And when we meet in formal assembly, which is our custom in the synagogues, we do not sit ourselves according to rank or calling.

 For there is no caste with in the Nemenhah but we are all servants.

Yea, the synagogues are built in a circle or hoop fashion, as has been described in another place, and the priests and teachers sit in the center.

And when they teach, they do stand in order that all may hear their words. But
behold, they do not stand because they are above any other person in rank or caste.

21)  And when we meet, the priest leads the people in prayer, or asks that someone lead in prayer. For, when we come together in assembly, either for worship and oblation, or for councils, wedo wish the Lord to be there with us.

For it is expedient that we have the assistance and counsel of the Lord in all things, to help us with what we are about to do.

Wherefore, we do pray first in earnest entreaty to have the Lord with us,
and also the Holy Ghost.

22)  And also when we meet together in assembly we do sing songs of praise unto the Lord. Yea, we do lift up our voices in song and thanksgiving unto the Lord whenever we do assemble ourselves together.

And whenever a new song is written, we ask our teachers to instruct us in it.

For, the song of thanksgiving is a prayer unto the Lord and we know that the Lord does rejoice in our thanksgiving, for He has informed us that it is so.

23)  And when we have prayed for the presence of Heavenly Beings

And when we have all taken of the bread and wine of the Lord’s supper

 The teacher stands and reads from the scriptures.

And when this is done, the teacher sometimes expounds upon what has been read as the Spirit gives utterance.

And also, if any person is moved upon by the Holy Ghost, they also stand in their place and speak the words which come to their hearts.

But more often, the people take thought in that which has been read without much talking, for the Holy Ghost is a mighty instructor.

24)  And when this is all done, the teacher leads us in more song

And the priest leads us once again in prayer.

And the people embrace each other and the assembly is concluded.

25)  And this is the custom among all the Nemenhah when they meet in assembly together.

And behold, the priests and teachers assist us always in our understandings

And in our oblations.

26)  Now, it is the priest who is given the charge and the stewardship of the care and keeping of the synagogue, and this does often take away from the time necessary for the priest to labor for the support of the family and for the creating of surplus.

And the Nemenhah do not begrudge the priest anything that is required in order to maintain the synagogue in good order.

Wherefore, the people all do give of their surplus to the priest because of the labor which is required on the part of the people.

And no priest is ever left in a state of want, for this would be the shame and the dishonor of the people.

27)  But the teachers are not asked to do more than the people themselves do in order to fulfill the stewardship that has been placed upon them.

Wherefore, they are not made beggars by their stewardship and make no
entreaty because of it.

28)  And there is always a font of water kept at the synagogue in readiness for any who might wish to be baptized.

And this font is kept clean and the water is kept fresh each day.

And when any person desires to renew the covenant which they have made with the Lord, and the people do this often, they come to the priest and ask for the ordinance.

Or they bring with them that member of their family who does act as Peli
for them in this ordinance and the priest leads them in it in a sacred manner.

29)  And when a sojourner or a stranger first arrives in the city, they go unto the priest and make themselves known.

And their needs are made known to the priest first, and also their intention.

And the priest takes their petition to the high priest immediately, and their want is fulfilled out of the storehouse of the city.

Then, once care is taken to assure that they do not want for their physical needs, they may make their introduction to the Council and, if it is their intention to stay and become part of the community, they receive their stewardship from the Council.

30)  Wherefore, the Nemenhah are carefulto maintain that the priest of the synagogue always has somewhat of a surplus to care for the wayfarer and the stranger.

And they also bring as much of their surplus as they cannot keep adequately themselves to the storehouses of the city, that there be no waste of the surplus of the people.

And this is kept in good order by the high priest of the city and those the Council calls to
assist in this labor as part of their stewardship.

But behold, all that can be adequately kept in the homes of the Nemenhah, they do keep themselves and they do administer it to the needy.

31)  But neither the priest of the synagogue nor the high priest are left without that which is needed to immediately assist the stranger, the visitor, or the wayfarer.

For, it is oft the case that such is their state that the wayfarer arrives in the city in desperate need and the priest is called upon to assist with haste.

Wherefore, we always maintain that the priest, whom we call to be a shepherd to the people and a servant, has a store of that which is needed to be of speedy assistance.

32)  Behold, I am reminded of the day that I did arrivein Mentinah from the Nephite wars.

I and my companions whom I had gathered along the way werein desperate need of assistance.

And behold, because of the custom of the Nemenhah, we had no need of making our petition to the Council, but rather, our needs were immediately met by the priest of the synagogue.

For, the first person to see us approaching the city ran out to greet us and, seeing that we were desperate from our long journey and
hungry, took us directly to the priest.

33)  And the priest of the synagogue nearest to the southern approach to the city, for this is the direction in which we did arrive in Mentinah, having crossed a great desert and traversed the mountains, was a woman of great spirit and presence of mind.

And the Nemenhah had made sure that she had a store of those things most required by the wayfarer.

And she did take us in without question or interview, and she did succor us and give us that which we most required, being a place to wash ourselves, sound food and medicine with wine to revive us, and a place to lay ourselves down to rest.

And when we were revived, for we were in sore want, she administered the sacrament of the Lord’s supper with us and revived our spirits as well.

Then did we go up unto the Council and give our report of the war and its outcome.

34)  Now, this is a good custom. For we were desperate for assistance, having come from afar off.

And behold, we were strangers in a strange city.

And our appearance was exceedingly rough.

Yea, we did appear as vagabonds straight from who might know what mischief.

But, becauseof the custom of the people, no one was called upon to judge our intention.

The Nemenhah took care of our immediate needs first.

For, it is also the custom that newcomers come unto the Council to introduce themselves and it is the stewardship of the Council to ascertain one’s intentions.

35)  But behold, it is the stewardship of every individual to feed the hungry and clothe the naked.

And it is the calling of each man and woman to give rest to the weary and to lift up the hands that hang down.

This is the commission of every man or woman which is given unto them of Jesus Christ, who is the Peacemaker.

Above all other stewardships that might be given of men, this one stewardship is given of the Lord and the Nemenhah need no commandment or reminder in it.

They do assure that all who come wanting into their cities are cared for speedily.

36)  For, are we not all wayfarers?

Do we not all travel together the road upon which our Lord has placed us?

And can we say that this road is always pleasant and never rough?

Or is it true that we always go upon our way knowing exactly what will become of us or how our journey will fare?

Can any of us predict one day to the next with certainty?

37)  I say unto you, Nay.

For we have not all things before us and cannot see the end from the beginning.

And if we are all wayfarers, it is good to remember that we may at time fare ill in our journey and require speedy assistance to save our very lives.

If this be the case with us, how can we begrudge our substance to any other?

Yea, and how can we, who have plenty and to spare, fail to make preparations before the time of need to provide for them who have not?

Because we are blind to all that might befall us

is it not wisdom to make preparations?

38)  But behold, it is a peculiar thing among the Nemenhah that we do make preparations not for ourselves, but it is for others that we make preparation, yea, we do it to be of service to our neighbor.

For, what good would our surplus be to him that immediately needs if he must first find us who have made preparation to make his entreaty?

For immediate aid, such a thing would profit no one.

Wherefore, we put up in store in order that no petition may go up unheard and unheeded, nay, not even for a moment.

39)  Now, all the commissions given of Christ for to fulfill His purposes are called by us the Priesthood of God.

Yea, it is by His commission that priests and teachers are called to assist us and to attend to the synagogues.

And it is by His commission that the high priest sees to the management of the High Place and of the surplus of the city and its keeping.

And it is by His commission that mothers and fathers do teach their children and also the stranger in their house.

And it is by His commission that families do sometimes assign Peli with a special calling to assist them with the ordinances and the sacrifices. —————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Behold, the commission of the Lord is the priesthood

 And it is the responsibility of every person to obtain it.

40)  The priest is not the priesthood.

Nay, and the high priest is not the priesthood.

It is that specific word of God that comes to the individual by and through the Holy Ghost that conveys the commission to the heart and soul of a man or a woman.

41)  And behold, when this commission is come into the soul of a person, they come to the priest or the high priest, or to the Peli of a family, and they request a blessing of them to confirm by token and by the laying on of hands of that which has been received of the Lord.

And the priest, the high priest or the Peli shall give whatever words of prophecy or counsel to which the Holy Ghost may give utterance

 And this becomes a witness and an assistance to the individual in fulfilling that commission whereby the Lord has called them.

42)  And if the high priest does call upon a person from out of the names provided by the people to be a priest or teacher unto them, they may not take up the calling until they have sought the confirmation of the Holy Ghost that they have received the commission of the Lord in it.

And if they receive not this confirmation, they do not accept the call, but they do ask the high priest to go again unto the Lord in prayer to affirm the matter.

43)  Behold, the priesthood of God is a serious matter to the Nemenhah and we do not trifle with it.

It is not given to any person without the clear and certain commission of the Lord.

And this commission comes to a person by and through the power of the Holy Ghost.

44)  Now, there is nothing that the is necessary for the salvation of the soul that the Lord might command that differs from the covenant that He did enter into with the Father and with the Holy Ghost.

Wherefore, women, having already received the saving grace

And commission of the Mother

already possess the priesthood of God.

But behold, they must also receive a confirmation of the calling before taking it up for the Lord.

45)  But men have not this grace from their birth and must receive it from the Peacemaker.

This is why the Nemenhah do confer upon those men who are called of God, the priesthood after the orders thereof.

And they are ordained to the offices that are assigned thereto by the laying on of hands after that they have received the commission.

Behold, only they who have received the commission of the Lord to do so may
confer or ordain by the laying on of hands.

46)  Whereas, women are called to the office with a holy calling and a blessing by the laying on of hands as a token of the commission only.

For they have the priesthood already conferred upon them and shall anyone confer that which is already given?

47)  And how shall anyone know that they have truly received the commission and that they do act according to word and will of the Lord?

Behold, they do not set themselves up or apart from their neighbors.

Nay, they do not wear special attire which sets them apart.

And they do not set a mark of any kind upon themselves

to give them distinction that all might look and see

 that they possess the priesthood of God.

48)  It is the responsibility of every person to seek the confirmation of the Holy Ghost that any person has the right to speak and act in the name of God.

And this is done every time an ordinance that requires the commission of the Lord is to be performed.

Behold, the participants shall fast and pray, and if they receive not the confirmation that the right individual has been chosen to perform the ordinance, they return again to fasting and prayer.

49)  Behold, these things are of such import that they are never rushed into.

And if the confirmation of the Holy Ghost is not received, the person is not judged worthy or unworthy.

It is merely that they have not the commission of the Lord in that thing at that time.

For, the priesthood of God is not a thing that is given to all and all at once.

It is a thing that must be cultivated and cared for throughout one’s life.

50)  Yea behold, I may receive the commission on one day and then on the next I may be found in anger against my neighbor.

In that moment I have lost the commission of the Lord.

It is only after I have repented and made good my error that the commission returns unto me.

Therefore, the priesthood becomes a constant reminder to each individual of the determinate need to be in constant harmony with the Lord in all things.

It is in this way that the Lord uses the priesthood to teach and to train us to become like Him in all things.

51)  And so great is the import of this principle that it has been revealed and written that no man may take up this honor unto himself, but that he is called of God as was Aaron, the brother of Moses the prophet.

52)  Now, Aaron was called up to the office of high priest unto his people by the mouth of a prophet of God.

But do you suppose that this was done without Aaron’s having received any intelligence of it?

Nay, believe it not, for I say unto you that Aaron did inquire of the Lord in the matter.

And, after that he had spent much time and effort in repenting of his faults and his errors, the Lord did convey unto him through the power of the Holy Ghost the commission to do all that the prophet called him to do.

53)  And Moses and Aaron were sons of Levi and they did answer the call of the Lord and they did act according to the commission of the Lord.

Therefore, they did possess the priesthood and were justified in all that they did in righteousness.

54)  Does that mean that they were justified in all things because they had the priesthood of God?

I say unto you, Nay.

Behold how neither of them were allowed to go down into the promised land but were taken from the earth before the children of Israel received their inheritance.

55)  Wherefore, take heed all you who would claim to possess the right and power to speak and act in the name of Jesus Christ, the Peacemaker.

Yes, have a care what you do and say in His name.

For, if you seek not to be commissioned in all things and in all times, the priesthood shall be a thing of naught in you and, though you claim to have received it by ordinance after a set pattern, you shall speak the name of the Lord in vain and you shall lay upon Him actions that are not His.

Behold, you shall sow great confusion in the day that you do this.

Yea, a generation may go into confusion before the Lord will correct your evil.

Part XI The Record of Mor-Honayah; For, if the ways of the Nemenhah are to be preserved, the people must do it.

Greetings all my relations,

It is with thankfulness of heart and mind, that I meet with you here today…

I am thankful to Chief Cloudpiler, and the Nemenhah People, for sharing their family records with us… and for restoring the deeper meanings of the sacred ordinances and temple covenants…For sharing their ways and customs… for us to model ourselves after these ancestors called Nemenhah…meaning The People of God or The People of The Spirit

I am also thankful to Heavenly Father and Mother for their plan of salvation called the New and Everlasting Covenant and how we, all of us can and did, participate in this Plan with them….

It is the family story about Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother Their Chosen Son and The Holy Ghost and our First Parents and All of Us…

The story of the daily life of our first parents and all of us…

 This road is called “The Thanksgiving Way”

cj note: Mother Eve says to Jehovah when she says yes and covenanted to Obey His Voice and follow His Commandments, she saw that this was a good road…

cj note: a path…a path leading to Zion…Zions Path…

It is Their Story…

It is Our Story…about Family Life, Love, Sacrifice, Covenant Making, Forgiveness, Redemption, etc…it is also about establishing a government with councils and laws…

cj note: please read The Nemenhah constitution and all the recent documents listed on The Nemenhah website www.nemenhah.org

Our First parents Adam and Eve followed Jehovah’s instructions…Together they brought a little piece of heaven to the earth…Zion, The four covenants and Pillars, The Plan of Salvation

Behold, our first parents did build up Zion in their hearts.

They did build a house and a city, a temple unto the Lord their God.

They knew Him as He really is

And that He was mighty to bless and mighty to save.

Wherefore, it seemed good and profitable unto them that they should obey His voice and His commandments,

Yea, even before they set out to attend to the necessities of life.

The very secrets of creation and The fullness of the Teachings of Jesus Christ given to the prophet Ougou…Abt 33 A.D.

Vol 2: The Record of the High Place contains the whole plan beginning times before times…

Today we are studying the record written by the prophet Mor-Honayah. (Moroni)

Vol 4; Chapter Eleven

1) Now, when I had filled the seat of high priest of Mentinah for the space of twenty and five years, the people of the city numbered too many and the land became burdened.

Yea, and the people did begin to take too much from the land and from the mountains, and they began to hurt the land.

Wherefore, it was determined in the Councils that the residents must split up and divide into smaller communities.

But there was some strife in deciding who would go and who would stay.

2) For, many of the families of Mentinah had lived in the city for many generations and they loved their city.

Wherefore, it did come to pass that some refused any method of determining who might go and who might stay.

And they denied the right and authority of the Council to make such determination.

Yea, and it did seem that the people were about to experience contention and dissent in the city.

3) But, I would exhort you to consider the rights of the people of the city.

Did the Council have authority to decide who must go and who must stay?

Or what power does the Council have over the people of Mentinah if no complaint of injury against any person has been placed before them?

I say to you, they have none.

Wherefore, the Council did attempt to take up authority from the people to which they were not entitled.

And this thing did cause much strife in all the city and much dissension.

4) And it became my duty, as high priest of the city, to ask the people to recommend what action must be taken.

And the people decided to dissolve the Council of Mentinah and called a Council of Mothers to elect a new Community Council.

And this decision was accepted by the Council of Mentinah and the members did stand down.

5) And the Mothers of all the families of the city and the environs round about it over which the city held sway, did meet together and they did prayerfully consider names.

And they did nominate twelve people to recommend to the people.

But behold, the people did not elect all of those nominated and the Council was not filled.

Wherefore, the Mother’s Council did meet again to consider names and they did nominate seven and recommended them to the people.

And behold, only three of them were elected by the people.

And the Mothers met again and nominated four more and the people did elect them.

6) And the Peli Council did also meet and compiled a list of all the names of the greatest Healers in the community

And did send the list to the new Council of Mentinah.

And the Council did elect from the list of names one person and she became the Talking Feather of the Council.

7)  And these are the names of the men and women who sat on the Council of Mentinah before the election:
Ayimlekt,

Shi-Tosinlit,

Nephi-im,

Pa Parim,

Shi Melek,

Shi-Echinmet,

Shi-Panishim,

Pa-Torieth,

Hemnietem-im,

Phahorem,

Pa-Penith, and Mentineth.

8)  And they did step down from the Council.

9)  And these are the names of the men and women who were elected by the people: Ayimlekt,

Shi-Tosinlit,
Temnet,

Pa Parim,

Shi Melek,

Shi-Echinmet,

Shi-Panishim,

Pamath,

Ishimemet,

Pac-Mentinah,

Pa-Penith,
and Hemeniet.
10)  And the Council chose Natanhim to be the Talking Feather.

11)  And behold, when the Council of Mentinah met, they too determined that the population of the city had grown too great and that the city must be depopulated.

But they did not seek ways whereby the people might determine who must go and who must stay.

They counseled the denizens only upon the great peril to their city and to the environment around it should they not reduce the burden upon the land and did not
seek to take up authority to act upon the matter.

12)  And the people of the city did begin to assemble together and discuss the matter, and many made preparations to take their stewardships

to another place and to create a new city.

And this was after the designs of my heart, for I desired that the people make the decision themselves.

For, if the ways of the Nemenhah are to be preserved, the people must do it, and my heart was gladdened that the people of Mentinah discerned the risk, both to their good land, but also to their ways and customs, and they did correct themselves in the right way.

13)  Now, there were cities in that place where Hagoth and his little band of sojourners first made their settlement, which had been all but abandoned because they did not heed the earth’s warning.

Yea, the people of that city refused to leave when they had grown too large and they did entirely use up the good of the land.

And behold, they were forced to leave all at once and in haste, abandoning home and shop, barn and field.

And they left behind them ghostly and empty cities

wherein only a few lonesome people now live.

14)  Behold, I say to you, this would have been the fate of Mentinah.

For, the land may bear only so many souls without hurt. And when the land we walk upon is hurt, she does not giveof her bounty.

Shall any city do this in this fair land you shall see want and hunger.

Yea, you shall see drought and famine.

And young men shall do hurt and young women also.

15)  And this they did even to the utter collapse of their cities in the land where the great river turns to the north, where our fathers set up their first place of settlement.

And behold, this was not just one city, but many, and they all collapsed seemingly at once because they would not divide and walk gently upon the earth.

Yea, and they did continue to cut down the trees for their houses and their fuel.

And, when the snow melted in the spring, the water ran out of control into the canyons and was taken away.

Wherefore, there was nothing for the crops when the sun did beat down upon them.

16)  And behold, the soil also was carried away by the spring running and also be the summer winds.

And there remained not enough to nourish the crops through the season and they failed.

And the people did use up their surplus hoping that the next year would be better, or that there would be rain, or that the snows would not run so swiftly from off the mountains.

But behold, there was no change and they all became beggars and, like beggars, they did all put their things upon their backs and they left the place of their habitation and came even into other cities of the Nemenhah for refuge.

17)  Now, this was a complete collapse of their society and of their cities.

They did not stray one by one out of the place of their habitation.

Rather, they left all at once leaving behind home and hearth.

18)  Now the streets of their cities and settlements are left empty and the dogs gambol in the alleyways.

Their gardens wither and their vines do not give fruit, for there is none to tend them.

Their houses stand as testimony against them and the voice of laughter and singing is not heard in their synagogues.

19)  There is no provender in the storehouse and those very few who remained continue to seek the succor of their neighbors until they too may leave in safety.

20)  Yea, Zion is left desolate because of the intentions of the Nemenhah of that region.

21)  Their granaries are barren and their cisterns are dry.

Their vats press out no wine and the Nemenhah wander in search of what help they may find in the desert places.

22)  The wind sings through the streets and only wild animals enjoy their avenues.

The lonely sound of their empty cities call out to the traveler and cause him to turn the foot from its ghostly welcome.

23)  For the Nemenhah of that region have all left their homes and come unto other places.

They have come away all at once and have left nothing behind them but their memories.

24)  Behold, this shall be the future of all the Nemenhah, should they fail to keep the commandments of God and follow Him in His paths.

Yea, if the people cease to strive with God,

He shall cease to strive with them.

Or, shall He reveal unto us

the ways in which we might

live peaceably with our fellows, 

and also with the earth

and we turn from that revelation?

And, if we do, what shall be the outcome?

Shall we not reap that which we sow

because we are Nemenhah?

Are the Nemenhah so favored of the Lord that

He will ignore us when we disobey His voice

and give no heed to His counsel?

25)  For, we do rely upon the Lord to cause the rain to fall upon our crops.

And we do believe Him when He says that He is the font of living water.

And shall we use up the good of the earth before His very face

and cry to Him for protection?

Shall we lift up our stiff necks and praise Him?

Or shall we raise ourselves up on a pillar and cry unto Him, that all might see us?

Are we so favored that the decree of the Lord concerning this land shall no longer be esteemed by the Nemenhah?

26)  The Lord of the Harvest has established this place as a land flowing with milk and honey.

 Shall we throw it in His face and tread upon His counsel?

If we do, we shall do it to our peril.

For, who can follow the Lord in this thing and yet set that thing aside for another time and another people?

Shall we choose out from among the revelations this one or that one to which we shall take heed?

 Or shall we set one set of books aside and esteem them of no value?

27)  Shall any people rely upon their own counsel and set aside the counsel of God, they shall surely be left alone to reap their reward.

For, the Lord gives of His bounty freely unto they who will listen unto His voice.

And He shall even bless them that know not His voice, but do well.

But, unto that people who know His voice and openly defy Him,

He shall not pour out a blessing upon them

and the earth shall not give of her generosity.

And it matters not what such a people call themselves, be it Mentinite, or
Witchitite, or Nespelite, or Nephite, or Lamanite, or Levite, they shall all be the same who tread upon the counsels of the Lord God.

28)  Now behold, the valley called Menintah, wherein lies the city of Mentinah, is not so unlike to the valley called Hagoth that we might enjoy a different fate should we do as the Nemenhah of Hagoth did.

Yea, our valley shall not be filled with fields and meadows and our mountains crowned with great towering trees, if we fail to walk gently upon the land.

Yea, our streams and our springs shall dry up also, should we do the
same, and our beautiful garden place shall become a desert and wither.

29)  And behold, what became of those cities in the place of Hagoth’s first habitation in this Land Northward, shall become of all they who gather into multitudes of people too large for the land to bear.

Yea, the land shall carry them only so long, even as an ass does bow under his load.

But load the ass too heavily and push him too harshly and he will kick off his burden and run away from you.

So too shall this fair land kick off her burden and turn her face from us.

Zion is called Wahakunheno

Greeting all my relations.

It is with great honor that we meet together again to study and learn from the Sacred Records of The Nemenhah… Lets begin our sacred talk on the principles and laws of Zion…

Wahakunheno…Zion

“This makes all things that man might seek to accomplish with the strength of his might and the sweat of his face, holy unto the Lord.

Then, by using their strength to make holy all things with which they have to do, men and women do also begin to sow the seeds of Zion in their own hearts.

Wherefore is Zion called Wahakunheno in the tongue of our fathers

 For it truly is a heavenly place.

And the man who walks in Zion, even he who does walk upon the Way is called Shihayinhit Pal oshami,

And the woman who walks upon the Way is called Pahanhits Palojami, for they truly walk in a fair land and a fair country

(Memish 10:21).”
Zion is a people or a place where the Laws of God (law of the Gospel, Law of Sacrifice, Law of Chastity, and Law of Consecration) are kept.

 The Gifts of the Spirit flow

 And the people love and seek and see the Lord’s face

  There is no degree of slavery.

One person is not above another.

There is no distinction between people, for example, if someone has priesthood it does not make him/her more important than someone who does not.

The Book of Memish Akekt

Behold, our first parents did build up Zion in their hearts.

They did build a house and a city, a temple unto the Lord their God.

They knew Him as He really is

And that He was mighty to bless and mighty to save.

Wherefore, it seemed good and profitable unto them that they should obey His voice and His commandments,

Yea, even before they set out to attend to the necessities of life.

Chapter Ten

1) Now, it is known throughout the land that the Nemenhah have striven to keep to a system of economy and of government which does bring about the unity of the people, that they may have all things in common.

And this is according to the necessity that our forefathers perceived in their own times and that we have also recognized in ours.

2) Behold, many have thought to equate our laws of economy to the Law of Consecration, which is the fourth great law that our Creator did teach unto First Man and First Woman.

But the Law of Consecration cannot be likened unto any system made by man.

Wherefore, all you who read these writings, give thought to my words and ponder them.

Shall the economics of God ever be compared to the economics of men? I say unto you, Nay.

3) For when men and women do covenant to keep the Law of Consecration, it is not because they have become so versed in the use of money and riches that they finally become enlightened as to right way of the Lord.

Nay, do not think that puffing oneself up with pride can put you in any better stead in the understanding of this law than the spendthrift, for it has nothing to do with money.

4) And I perceive the misconception that shall arise in latter days concerning this law.Yea, you shall have it, for it shall be taught unto you and many shall bow their heads and say yes in covenant to keep this law, without knowledge.

Yea, in the latter days, men and women shall value all things according to their riches or their lack.

5) Now ponder with me upon that which shall vex the Gentiles in the latter days. Yea, for a time, they shall be your taskmasters, but they shall not ever understand the Law of Consecration, even though the Lord Himself should teach it unto them.

For they are bent upon the subduing of the earth and the exploiting of her resources.

Wherefore, though the Lord God teach the law unto them, they shall interpret His words and place a value upon them, even as they place a value upon all things.

6) For, unto the Gentiles in the last days, even in those days in which these writings shall come forth to be read by my own descendants, all things shall have a value in money.

Their homes shall be worth a certain amount of money, as also their furnishings. It shall not be shelter for them, nor comfort, but it shall be money.

And behold, it shall become the custom of the people, and even the law of the land, that all men and women shall make an accounting of all that they possess, and also the worth in money of all the work which they performed during the year, that they might be constrained to pay in money that portion which the governors shall deem appropriate to their value.

And even in the churches, men and women will make this same accounting that their stewards may declare unto them how much money they must pay in order to be esteemed worthy.

7) And their conveyances shall also be valued, as also all that shall pertain unto them. And their tools and implements shall be esteemed worthy only because of their value in money.

And when a thing is no longer new, they shall devalue it and cast it aside, though it loses none of its utility.

8) And their raiment shall also be valued. All things shall be listed and accounted unto them by a money value, and this thing they shall esteem good. Believe me, unto the rulers of the people, even the people themselves shall have a value put upon them.

And this last thing shall be a sign unto you that you do live in the last days, even in that day when the Lord shall take away the stewardship from out of the hands of the Gentiles.

Behold, even they who call themselves the shepherds of the Lord’s flock shall place a money value upon the heads of all the believers.

Yea,every man and woman, every child, and even the elders of the people shall cost something and have their appropriate value.

9) Behold, they who have eyes to see and ears to hear shall watch for these things.

And when you see this doctrine creep stealthily into the policy of the stewards of the church, then shall you know that they have forsaken the Lord and His policy.

They shall have no knowledge of the Law of Consecration and shall teach folly unto all the church.

10) Yea, even they shall at times and seasons gather in all the faithful and demand of them all that they possess. And this they shall declare a faithful saying from the Lord.

Yea, they shall say that all things must be delivered up that all men may be esteemed equal. Do you see how they shall value a man because of money? Even in giving up all that he has, that he might be equal with his brother, equality is defined by the lack of money.

11) Then the shepherds shall assign unto the man; and the value of a man shall be the same, for all shall have nothing; that which they shall esteem is equal unto his needs. Therefore shall he receive in houses and cattle and provender and raiment, that which meets their evaluation of him.

This they shall call his stewardship. And this shall they call having all things in common, in that each man shall have a common value and it shall be that value assigned to him by they who have possession of all that which has money value. Yea, this shall be the nature of their consecration.

12) But unto what do they consecrate? Is it unto God or mammon? I say unto you, they shall consecrate all that they possess unto they who do the valuing.

Yea, they shall bring all their possessions into the storehouse, not that there might be meat in the Lord’s house, but that all men might be equally evaluated.

Then shall they call themselves worthy and not before. I say unto you that they shall consecrate their time, talents and all that they might possess unto money and there shall always be poor among them.

They shall have all common things, but not all things in common.

13) And when they have proven unto their satisfaction that the Lord’s commandment to live a united order and have all things in common is impractical, they shall set even their interpretation aside and abandon it.

Yea, in those days they shall covenant to keep the Law of Consecration without any knowledge of the law without any anxiety about living it.

Their stewards, seeing that the Law of Consecration cannot be evaluated by money, shall declare that it is not expedient in the Lord that they even experiment upon it.

Yea, they shall put such words into the Lord’s mouth. Yet, they shall continue to require all men to swear with an oath to consecrate their time, talents and all that they might possess to the building up of that system that makes impossible the living of the law. Such shall be their confusion in the latter days.

14) Wherefore, my children, it is most expedient that you teach your little ones the true nature of this great law, for the Lord shall call upon them to live it.

Yea, and it is by this understanding that Zion may be brought again into this land.

And behold, this is the thing that the Lord shall require of His children in the last days.

Yea, He shall require them to live the Law of Consecration and not simply promise to live it.

Part X The Record of Mor Honayah; Finding That Stillness That is Needed to Walk Upon The Way

Greetings all my relations,

It is with great honor that we meet again and have this sacred talk…

I would like to thank the Nemnehah People and honor them with this website.

I can’t wait to get back to our study….So

Let’s continuue our readings of The Sacred Records of The Nemenhah;

Volume 4, the Record of MorHonayah

Chapter 10

1) Now, I am one who must set aside

more than simply the things of the world

in order to find that stillness

that must be acquired if one wishes to walk upon the Way.

Yea, I have seen and done things that in moment of war must be justified by the mind of man, that the work of death might go forward.

And behold, this is a thing that prevents the mind and the heart from finding that stillness that is needed to walk upon the Way,

and it is the reason that hardly shall any man of war be admitted there.

2) And there are many such distractions

in our daily walk

that might prove

to be an impediment to us all.

Wherefore, it is expedient to choose that way of life that will most effectively remove from our minds the clamor and the noise of daily living,

that we might choose a better thing.

3) It is for this cause that the Lord led our forefathers out of the Land Southward.

For they saw in the Nephite way of living an obstacle to the continuation of peace.

Yea, the Nephites did begin to lust after the things of the world and to gather to themselves all manner of riches.

This did quickly become an obstacle to them and a stumbling block.

4) And we cannot discern any difference in their manner of living and their manner of worship in the end.

In every thing they did seek to heap up rewards and to deliver punishments, both at home and in the synagogues.

This is a thing most ruinous to a nation.

5) But the Nemenhah do choose a better way and, because of this choice, they have no impediment that may not be overcome.

Yea, their manner of worship does remind them everyday that their peace does come
out of the sacrifice of every member of the community.

And they feel no need to heap reward upon each other for their goodness, for the Lord does abundantly reward them out of the natural consequences of their choices.

And they have no need of punishment or coercion in their dealings with their fellows, for
they esteem all people equally and do not set themselves up as the judge of their brother’s worthiness.

6) Yea, the Nemenhah do exercise great faith at home and in the synagogue and their every action does serve to remind them of the nature of the creation and also their part and duty in it.

7) The purification of the Ammonihah is practiced among the Nemenhah, but it has become an ordinance that is practiced more often by men than by women.

For, it is expedient that men learn the way of sacrifice,

even to the extent that they may make a living sacrifice

for the sake of all living.

Women do make this sacrifice by and through their very creation and nature.

Wherefore, it is not expedient for them, howbeit, there are those who do participate in it.

But the men must find living ways to learn this manner of sacrifice

and they set their feet upon this path

by and through

the ordinance passed down to us from our forefathers.

8) And this purification does cleanse the body of evils that can inhibit the spirit.

That which this purification does cast out of the body does often contribute to clouding the mind and this can become an obstacle to obtaining that inner peace that is required in order that one might walk upon the Way.

9) And the men and women of the Nemenhah do use those ceremonies in which the use of sacred and healing smoke is employed.

This kind of purification does also help the mind and the body find peace.

And they also use ordinances and ceremonies

which do utilize the essences of plants,

even the pure essences of them,  and this does have effect upon

the body and the spirit 

in many ways beneficial to the attaining

of that state of mind

necessary to walk upon the Way.

10) And behold, the Nemenhah do also fast often with their families.

And this they do not in the sight of others, but they do it secretly.

And they do not communicate their fasting to others, to be seen of them,
but they do it often and in private.

11)  And also the ordinances of the High Place do cause a change

in the character and countenances of the people.

For, in them they are introduced into the Terrestrial World

and this does remind them of their purpose.

12)  And behold, because of the nature of the Nemenhah way of life,

even the Law of Consecration,

men and women are constantly reminded of their purpose.  

For, it is certain that, as men and women serve each other and work diligently to shoulder the burdens of their fellows, their burdens are indeed lifted.

And this applies to their physical burdens and to their spiritual burdens equally.

13)  For, it is very often the carnal burdens that do create obstacles and impediments to attaining to that peace that does allow us to walk upon the Way,

and to live as the Nemenhah do relieves many of these burdens.

The relief of the earthly does often cause an enlightening.

And, in addition to the obvious physical blessing of our way of life,

we do also enjoy much spiritual liberty because of it.

14)  Now, what man may not admit that in the midst of strife and worry over the getting of gain, there is burden?

And who will deny that such a striving does not begin to consume every hour of the day and every thought and feeling of the heart?

It is entirely true and proved daily.

Or what beggar does not spend all his day begging and wondering when he shall next eat and where he shall next lay down his head to rest?

And what father of the Nephites had any time to contemplate anything greater than bringing in the crop?

And, in the end, did he not hurry in all things so that the Gadiantonhem could not make away with his living?

15)  Behold, the Nemenhah are not bound up in such worries and such pursuits. 

Because we provide in all things for one another, there are no beggars.

And because we do not heap up riches, we are not desired by the Gadiantonhem.

And this is a great blessing to us.

16)  And because our men and our women do not strive day by day against nature simply to live, they have time to contemplate the beauty of nature.

And, because we are not set upon by our neighbors in competition for our goods, we have leisure to enjoy the company of our fellows.

And because we have a surplus, we also have time to give thought to the blessings and wonders of creation and to approach our God.

17)  Is this not ample proof that the Nemenhah way is good and to be recommended to bring about happiness?
