The Book of Heinmet and The Book of 4 Nephi; LDS Saints to make of themselves friends of The Mammon of Unrighteousness

Greeting all my relations’

With great pleasure I bring to you the ancient book of Heinmet written about 206 A.D

Heinmet began his writings at age 17 in the 6th generation after Christ’s visit.

He attributed the success of the nation to living the Laws of God, particularly the Law of Consecration. He forewarned of the last days. He became high priest and listed the duties of this office.

In the 206th year following Christ’s visit, rumors came of divisions among people in
Land Southward.

A great council was held to decide the best way to defend Nemenhah lands against the Gadiantonhem.

Their decision lead to a change that threatened the Nemenhah way of life.

Heinmet knew of Mormon and of his son, Moroni.

The Book of Heinmet goes along with 4th Nephi of The Book of  Mormon.

So I am including the 4th Book of Nephi right here;

4 Nephi 1
FOURTH NEPHI
THE BOOK OF NEPHI
WHO IS THE SON OF NEPHI--ONE OF THE DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST
One of the Three Nephite - Translated Beings - Immortal - Holy Ones
An account of the people of Nephi, according to his record.
The Nephites and the Lamanites are all converted unto the Lord.
They have all things in common;
They work miracles;
And prosper in the land.
After two centuries, divisions, evils, false churches, 
and persecutions arise.
After three hundred years;
 both the Nephites and the Lamanites are wicked.
Ammaron hides up the sacred records. 
About A.D. 35–321.

4 Nephi 1:1
 1 And it came to pass that,
the thirty and fourth year passed away,
 and also the thirty and fifth, and behold the disciples of
Jesus had formed a church of Christ in all the lands round about.

And as many as did come unto them, and did truly repent
of their sins, were baptized in the name of Jesus; 
and they did also receive the Holy Ghost.

4 Nephi 1:2
 2 And it came to pass in the thirty and sixth year;
 The people were all converted unto the Lord, 
upon all the face of the land,
both Nephites and Lamanites, and there were 
no contentions and disputations among them, 
and every man did deal justly one with another.

4 Nephi 1:3
 
3 And they had all things common among them; 

Therefore there were not rich and poor, bond and free;

But they were all made free;

And partakers of the heavenly gift.

4 Nephi 1:4
 4 And it came to pass that,
the thirty and seventh year passed away also, 
and there still continued to be peace in the land.

4 Nephi 1:5
 
5 And there were great and marvelous works;
Wrought by the disciples of Jesus, 
insomuch that they did heal the sick, 
And raise the dead, and cause the lame to walk;
And the blind to receive their sight, and the deaf to hear; 
And all manner of miracles did they work 
among the children of men; 
And in nothing did they work miracles 
save it were in the name of Jesus.

4 Nephi 1:6
 6 And thus did the thirty and eighth year pass away,
and also the thirty and ninth, and forty and first, 
and the forty and second.
 
Yea, even until forty and nine years had passed away, 
and also the fifty and first, and the fifty and second; 
Yea, and even until fifty and nine years had passed away.

4 Nephi 1:7
 7 And the Lord did prosper them exceedingly in the land; 
Yea,insomuch that they did build cities again
where there had been cities burned.

4 Nephi 1:8
 8 Yea, even that great city Zarahemla did they 
cause to be built again.

4 Nephi 1:9
 9 But there were many cities which had been sunk, 
and waters came up in the stead thereof; 
therefore these cities could not be renewed.

4 Nephi 1:10
 10 And now, behold, it came to pass that 
the people of Nephi did wax strong, 
and did multiply exceedingly fast, and became an
exceedingly fair and delightsome people.

4 Nephi 1:11
 11 And they were married, and given in marriage,
and were blessed according to the multitude 
of the promises which the Lord
had made unto them.

4 Nephi 1:12
 12 And they did not walk any more after the performances 
and ordinances of the law of Moses; but they did walk after the
commandments which they had received from their Lord 
and their
God, continuing in fasting and prayer, and in meeting 
together oft both to pray and to hear the word of the Lord.

4 Nephi 1:13
 13 And it came to pass that there was no contention among all
the people, in all the land; but there were mighty miracles
wrought among the disciples of Jesus.

4 Nephi 1:14
 14 And it came to pass that the seventy and first year 
passed away, and also the seventy and second year, 
Yea, and in fine, till the seventy and ninth year 
had passed away; 
Yea, even an hundred years had passed away, 
and the disciples of Jesus, whom he had chosen,
had all gone to the paradise of God, save it were;
The three who should tarry; and there were other disciples
ordained in their stead; and also many of that 
generation had passed away.

4 Nephi 1:15
 15 And it came to pass that there was no contention 
in the land,because of the love of God which did dwell 
in the hearts of the people.

4 Nephi 1:16
 16 And there were no envyings, nor strifes, nor tumults, 
nor whoredoms, nor lyings, nor murders, nor any manner of
lasciviousness; and surely there could not be a happier 
people among all the people who had been created by 
the hand of God.

4 Nephi 1:17
 17 There were no robbers, nor murderers, neither 
were there Lamanites, nor any manner of -ites; 
but they were in one, the children of Christ, 
And heirs to the kingdom of God.

4 Nephi 1:18
 18 And how blessed were they!  For the Lord did bless 
them in all their doings; yea, even they were blessed 
and prospered until an hundred and ten years 
had passed away; 

And the first generation from Christ had passed away;
 
And there was no contention in all the land.

4 Nephi 1:19
 19 And it came to pass that Nephi, he that kept this last
record, (and he kept it upon the plates of Nephi) died, and his
son Amos kept it in his stead; and he kept it upon 
the plates of Nephi also.

4 Nephi 1:20
 20 And he kept it eighty and four years, and there was still
peace in the land, save it were a small part of 
the people who had revolted from the church and taken 
upon them the name of Lamanites; therefore there began 
to be Lamanites again in the land.

4 Nephi 1:21
 21 And it came to pass that Amos died also, 
(and it was an hundred and ninety and four years from 
the coming of Christ) and his son Amos kept the record 
in his stead; and he also kept it upon the plates of Nephi; 
and it was also written in the book of Nephi, 
which is this book.

4 Nephi 1:22
 22 And it came to pass that two hundred years had passed away;
and the second generation had all passed away save it were a few.

4 Nephi 1:23
 23 And now I, Mormon, would that ye should know that 
the people had multiplied, insomuch that they were 
spread upon all the face of the land, and that they 
had become exceedingly rich, 
because of their prosperity in Christ.

4 Nephi 1:24
 24 And now, in this two hundred and first year there began to be
among them those who were lifted up in pride;
Such as the wearing of costly apparel, and all manner of fine pearls, 
And of the fine things of the world.

4 Nephi 1:25
 25 And from that time forth they did have their goods
 and their substance no more common among them.

4 Nephi 1:26
 26 And they began to be divided into classes; and they began to
build up churches unto themselves to get gain, and began to deny
the true church of Christ.

4 Nephi 1:27
 27 And it came to pass that when two hundred and ten years had
passed away there were many churches in the land; 
Yea, there were many churches which professed to know 
the Christ, and yet they did deny the more parts of his 
gospel, insomuch that they did receive all manner of wickedness,
and did administer that which was sacred unto him to 
whom it had been forbidden because of unworthiness.

4 Nephi 1:28
 28 And this church did multiply exceedingly because 
of iniquity, and because of the power of Satan
 who did get hold upon their hearts.

4 Nephi 1:29
 29 And again, there was another church which denied 
the Christ; and they did persecute the true church of Christ,
because of their humility and their belief in Christ; 
and they did despise them because of the many miracles 
which were wrought among them.

4 Nephi 1:30
 30 Therefore they did exercise power and authority over the
disciples of Jesus who did tarry with them, and they did cast
them into prison; but by the power of the word of God, which was
in them, the prisons were rent in twain, and they went forth
doing mighty miracles among them.

4 Nephi 1:31
 31 Nevertheless, and notwithstanding all these miracles, the
people did harden their hearts, and did seek to kill them, even
as the Jews at Jerusalem sought to kill Jesus, according to his
word.

4 Nephi 1:32
 32 And they did cast them into furnaces of fire, and they came
forth receiving no harm.

4 Nephi 1:33
 33 And they also cast them into dens of wild beasts, and they
did play with the wild beasts even as a child with a lamb; and
they did come forth from among them, receiving no harm.

4 Nephi 1:34
 34 Nevertheless, 
The people did harden their hearts, 
For they were led by many priests;
And false prophets to build up many
churches, and to do all manner of iniquity.  
And they did smite upon the people of Jesus; 
But the people of Jesus did not smite again.  
And thus they did dwindle in unbelief and wickedness,
from year to year. 

Even until two hundred and thirty years had passed away.

4 Nephi 1:35
 35 And now it came to pass in this year, yea, in the two hundred
and thirty and first year, there was a great division among the
people.

4 Nephi 1:36
 36 And it came to pass that in this year there arose 
a people who were called the Nephites, and they were 
true believers in Christ; and among them there were 
those who were called by the Lamanites--Jacobites,
and Josephites, and Zoramites;

4 Nephi 1:37
 37 Therefore the true believers in Christ, and the true
worshipers of Christ, (among whom were the three disciples 
of Jesus who should tarry) were called Nephites,and 
Jacobites,and Josephites,and Zoramites.

4 Nephi 1:38
 38 And it came to pass that they who rejected the gospel 
were called Lamanites, and Lemuelites, and Ishmaelites; 
and they did not dwindle in unbelief, but they did willfully 
rebel against the gospel of Christ; and they did teach 
their children that they should not believe, even as their 
fathers, from the beginning,did dwindle.

4 Nephi 1:39
 39 And it was because of the wickedness and abomination 
of their fathers, even as it was in the beginning.  
And they were taught to hate the children of God, even as 
the Lamanites were taught to hate the children of Nephi 
from the beginning.

4 Nephi 1:40
 40 And it came to pass that two hundred and forty and 
four years had passed away, and thus were the affairs of 
the people.  And the more wicked part of the people did wax strong, 
and became exceedingly more numerous than were the people 
of God.

4 Nephi 1:41
 41 And they did still continue to build up churches 
unto themselves, and adorn them with all manner of 
precious things. 

And thus did and also two hundred and fifty years pass away,
And two hundred and sixty years.

4 Nephi 1:42
 42 And it came to pass that the wicked part of the people 
began again to build up the secret oaths and combinations of Gadianton.

4 Nephi 1:43
 43 And also the people who were called the people of Nephi 
began to be proud in their hearts, because of their exceeding riches,
and become vain like unto their brethren, the Lamanites.

4 Nephi 1:44
 44 And from this time the disciples began to sorrow for the sins
of the world.

4 Nephi 1:45
 45 And it came to pass that when three hundred years had passed
away, both the people of Nephi and the Lamanites had become
exceedingly wicked one like unto another.

4 Nephi 1:46
 46 And it came to pass that the robbers of Gadianton did spread
over all the face of the land; and there were none that were
righteous save it were the disciples of Jesus.  
And gold and silver did they lay up in store in abundance,
And did traffic in all manner of traffic.

4 Nephi 1:47
 47 And it came to pass that after three hundred and five years
had passed away,(and the people did still remain in wickedness)
Amos died; and his brother, Ammaron, did keep the record in his stead.

4 Nephi 1:48
 48 And it came to pass that when three hundred and twenty years
had passed away, Ammaron, being constrained by the Holy Ghost,
did hide up the records which were sacred--yea, even all the
sacred records which had been handed down from generation to
generation, which were sacred--even until the three hundred and
twentieth year from the coming of Christ.

4 Nephi 1:49
 49 And he did hide them up unto the Lord that they might come
again unto the remnant of the house of Jacob according to the
prophecies and the promises of the Lord.  And thus is the end of
the record of Ammaron.

....and now continue on reading The Book of Heinmet;

Chapter Two

1) But behold, when I look upon your day, I do not see all that is beyond measure full of evil.

For, it is as I said, there shall be some who do take up the Lord’s yoke and seek to do righteousness in the day of their stewardship.

2) Yea, from among the Saints there shall arise some few who will refuse to be so caught up in the things of the world that they shall fail to see;

That they may not serve the Lord and also mammon.

They few shall begin to set aside the need to provide for their own needs alone and shall take up the good books and records that the earth shall cause to flow up unto them from out of the dust and they shall employ them as ensamples.

Yea, they shall look back and see the Nemenhah in our day,

Even as I look forward and see them in theirs.

And, seeing a model in our ways, as in the manners and ways of all the peoples who have obtained the blessings of Heaven because of their obedience in keeping the laws of God, they shall cease to place so great importance in the wisdom of the wise.

They shall walk again in the ways of the Lord and He shall bless them, even as He has blessed us. Yea, and there shall be peace once again ere He comes.

3) I do not suggest that all the land shall enjoy peace such as we now enjoy, for that would require that all people do live the laws and commandments of God equally,

And that I do not see.

Yet, I do see that some few shall have peace in a land filled with confusion.

They shall have refuge.

4) And they shall deal rightly with their neighbors and shall not judge them.

And behold, in their turn, their neighbors shall judge them not too harshly and they shall live peaceably with them.

And even I do see that the wicked shall in many instances protect and defend the righteous because they did not speak or act in judgment out of the pride of their hearts.

5) For pride shall beget pride and judgment shall beget judgment.

For this cause did the Lord admonish His Saints to make of themselves friends of the Mammon of Unrighteousness.

Behold, He did not suggest that the righteous take up unrighteousness, but rather, He did admonish the Saints to put away pride in their judgment of their neighbors and seek always to speak peace unto them.

6) And is this not the way of friends?

Is this not His meaning?

For, which of you having a friend does speak reviling unto them?

And who, having a friend does make of them the object of reviling?

Behold, if this is your custom, you shall not long have claim of friendship upon such.

7) Nay, the friend speaks peace and this is the thing that draws.

I may lay claim of friendship upon they unto whom I speak peace and from whom I do receive it.

This is friendship.

8) Wherefore, make of yourselves friends of the Mammon of Unrighteousness.

Be wise in your dealings with your fellow men who are not of the same inclination and disposition as yourself.

This is wisdom and good counsel.

For, when the test of friendship comes, they will judge you by that same judgment which
they shall have received from you.

Behold, in the day of tribulation, though your neighbor be of different beliefs,

he may yet offer you comfort and refuge because that,

though he be of another faith or manners than yours, or of none,

yet you made of him a friend.

9) Despise not such friendship, for, the day may come when the Mammon of Unrighteousness shall be your only refuge.

The Lord does work in mysterious ways.

10) Now, if you are inclined to speak and act in a manner much puffed up in judgment, your neighbors shall esteem you to be their enemy.

Wherefore, do not stand you up on a platform before your fellows and extol your virtues.

For, to stand before men to preach your own election is to condemn all those who find
other vocation.

Yea, speak not highly of yourselves but remain ever humble.

Judge not your neighbor at all, but, if they believe not, simply love them and be an ensample unto them.

Teach them and instruct them when the Spirit dictates.

11) Above all, you few who find yourselves in the midst of unbelievers,

Be forever harmless.

For, they in whom there appears no hint of harm shall fear no harm from even the wickedest of neighbors.

But they in whom may be perceived the hint of mightiness,

Let that one beware in the last days.

12) For, all nations shall be in contention and in commotion.

Give no occasion to be esteemed the enemy.

Behold, many shall fight with their neighbors without cause,

and these shall seek to justify their aggression.

Let them justify themselves in others who are of their own inclination.

Seek not to become a scapegoat for them and for their fury.

Yea, they shall seek you out and make you to stand as cause for
their invective and their aggression.

Wherefore, make yourselves harmless and humble.

Then the Lord shall preserve you in the land

And you shall enjoy peace even in the midst of confusion.

13) And in your refuges, compete not to be the most liked and highly sought after.

Judge not each other, for this comes of pride and shall destroy the peace of which I speak.

But seek to be equally esteemed by all people and esteem them likewise.

Make not an image of yourself and cause no one to think they must look up unto you.

But, hold ever to the Lord as your ensample also.

14) Behold, it pains me that, even among those few in the last days who do take up the Lord’s yolk to attempt to bring again Zion, there shall be some who look upon all the rest of the wicked world with the eyes of judgment.

Yea, they shall thank the Lord that they are not like the rest of the world.

They shall decide that, because they have made an attempt to live the Lord’s Law, they are already approved of the Lord.

Behold, of such shall come hardship and misery among the few who shall have claim on peace.

Yea, the pride of a very few can bring disaster and calamity upon the majority.

15) Wherefore, be ever watchful that you lift not yourselves up in the pride of your hearts.

It is to prevent this kind of pride that, when the Lord visits a person and declares unto them that the Holy Ghost has affected the sealing and made perfect their election, rarely does that person reveal the same to anyone.

And, as often as not, the Lord Himself does command that they tell no one.

16) But what?

Ought this not to be the greatest of ensamples and of great use in instruction – that a person may in actuality attain to that great end and become the Friend of Christ?

Wherefore then, shall a person who has received of the fullness refrain from teaching it?

17) It is because much pride comes of such teaching.

Or how may a man suggest that his neighbor may come unto Christ in fullness by looking upon another man in the flesh?

18) Yea, do you wish to become like unto Christ Himself?

Then look upon me, for I have received of Him the fullness.

Yea, my calling and election are made sure and perfect.

Yea, look upon me for your ensample, for the Holy Ghost has sealed me His.

Yea, and you too may receive of this great blessing.

19) All of these utterances may be perfect and correct in truth, but shall your neighbor bear such from you?

Likewise, shall a neighbor who believes not what you believe be inclined to repent because of your description of your own worthiness?

Nay, think it not.

It may well be that your neighbor may be brought to contemplate his own ways by comparison of yours to his, but never by you making a speech of the differences.

20) Behold, predict not your own salvation, but wait upon the Lord in such things.

He alone knows the end from the beginning.

He alone can look into your private thoughts and see your nakedness.

Wherefore, He alone may know the full measure of what you shall require to become perfected and to abide this estate and others.

Wherefore, since judgment is not within you, leave all such unto One who is mighty to save.

21) But make judgment upon that which is before you, to act or to be acted upon.

For, because of the light that is in you by and through the creation, you have wherewith to judge unto right action and unto right thought.

Yea, you have wherewith to judge good from evil, but not wherewith to judge men and women.

22) Or will you say: Come follow me and I will lead you into salvation?

Behold, the more part of the Saints in the last days shall lay such a thing upon their shepherds.

And behold, their shepherds shall take it up lamenting that the Saints have required it of them.

Yea, they shall lay claim that salvation comes of them and of the church, and that none shall have it but through them.

23) Behold, this is the bitterest of pride.

For, they seek to wrest from the Creator that which is His alone.

Yea, they lay claim to judgment well beyond their stewardship and place the responsibility for it upon the worthiness of the Saints.

Yea, the shepherds, and even some of they whom the Saints shall call Apostle and Prophet in the last days, shall take up this discourse and lay claim to the power to seal and to save.

And this shall be a pride that puffs itself even to the extent that all the Saints shall be taught that the Lord has given over such things to His servants.

24) Be forewarned in this, you very few who shall be the instrument in the Lord’s hand to bring again Zion.

Behold,

The power to seal is had by the Holy Spirit of Promise alone.

 Although you may call men to make expression of the principle by way of ceremony.

Yet the power by which men and women are sealed up unto Christ.

 A power to which they lay claim, is had by the Holy Ghost only.

25) And also the power to save is had by the Creator alone.

Yea, salvation comes of Him who has the power, the might.

The glory and the dominion necessary to save.

Do you think you, puny man, may lay claim to such things?

Shall you claim that this entity or that shall have such power? Then you are numbered
among those who raise up gods of stone to worship them.

26) My heart does swell within me to see the little flock that shall struggle amidst such opposition to bring again Zion.

Yea, they shall be beset on all sides, but never so fiercely than by they who would call
themselves their brethren.

But behold, they shall be blessed and prospered in the midst of their trials and their suffering.

27) Wherefore, when you read these things, you shall know that it is you of whom I speak and take comfort.

While the prideful shall also, reading this record, know themselves.

But they shall continue to puff themselves and to persecute their own.

The Book of Heinmet – Part 2: In The 6th Generation After Christ’s Visit to America

Greeting all my relations,

Let me begin my speaking,

These ancient records called the Mentinah Archives have changed my life and my spiritual direction. The reason I’m posting this blog called Zionspath…is that I hope our Nemenhah ancestors, will show us how to build Zion again in America…and many more things will be restored to the earth and all of us…

Let’s all listen to the words of this ancient prophet Heinmet;

The Book of Heinmet
The Son of Pa Natan
Heinmet began his writings at age 17.

In the 6th generation after Christ’s visit.

He attributed the success of the nation to living the Laws of God.

Particularly the Law of Consecration.

He forewarned of the last days.

He became high priest and listed the duties of this office.

In the 206th year following Christ’s visit, rumors came of divisions among people in
Land Southward.

A great council was held at Whit Chit Tim to decide the best way to defend Nemenhah lands against the Gadiantonhem.

Their decision lead to a change that threatened the Nemenhah way of life.

Heinmet knew of Mormon and of his son Moroni.

Heinmet is speaking to the great latterday gentile LDS church.

  This latter day saint church is part of the restoration of all things, begun by The Prophet and Seer Joseph Smith through visionary means God The Father and Jesus Christ appeared to the boy Joseph…, angles, the angel Moroni in particular… and translated beings…etc…

  • Gentile Church in the Latter Days
    The Lord spoke of this Gentile Church in the Latter Days, among other things, when He visited the Nemenhah of the Mountains.
  • This is Ougou’s account of what the Lord told them. {I felt it best to leave what was said word for word instead of trying to summarize these words. For, there is much I do not
  • understand and some of those things I do understand I have found many today do not believe. If people wish to disbelieve what the Lord said, they can take the matter up with Him.
  • There are also things the Lord gave to Nephi the son of Lehi (by the angel of the Lord) and He gave to Nephi the son of Nephi that complement these things.
  • Those things the Lord gave both of them can be found in the Book of Mormon at:
    1Nephi 13:1-42, 14:1-30, 3 Nephi 16:4-20, 20:10-46, 3 Nephi 21, 22, 23:1-5, 24, 25, 26, 28:24-40, 29, and 30}:
  • And it came to pass that this prophet did cause much restoration to come to pass in the gathering and uniting of the gentiles.
  • But behold, the other book was about the people of this promised land and it reminded the gentiles of the remnant of our posterity.
  • And we saw that this little book was great in spirit and was powerful in convincing the gentiles to come unto Christ.
  • Yea, behold we did rejoice exceedingly to know that the book did testify of our kindred.
  • Then behold, we saw the gentiles organize and regulate the Church once again in this land and their work did grow and prosper exceedingly.
  • But they did also grow and prosper in the things of the world.
  • Yea, they did become exceedingly rich and the more part of them did become puffed up with pride, which thing was exceedingly heavy and difficult for the humble and righteous among them to bear.
  • And behold, the Lord declared unto us that the coming forth of the book had a two-fold purpose: that our people would begin to be gathered into their inheritance because of the book, and also the book will be a herald unto all the world of the approaching culmination of His work upon this planet and in the whole World.
  • And our minds and hearts were comforted and we were again filled with the Holy Ghost (Ougou 175-177).”
  • “For ye have seen that I shall raise up a prophet unto the gentiles and because of him I shall gather in My children from out of all the four quarters of the world.
  • But his work shall be an initiation of the restoration not a culmination.
  • Yea, he shall begin to lay the foundation of a great work and Mine elect shall begin to
    gather out of all of the nations of the Earth.
  • And many will move even to this holy land and they shall prosper.
  • Yea, even I shall prosper them exceedingly and try them.
  • And they shall begin to keep many of My statutes but they shall change some and forget others.
  • Yea, I shall bring forth the stick of Joseph from among them and they shall deliver it unto all the world. In this they shall be blessed and shall be added unto the children of the covenant.
  • Yea, peace I shall bring them at the end of the travail and I will prosper them, and try them.
  • But they shall utterly fail in gathering in the remnant of your posterity.
  • I say as a people they shall forget My commandment with regard to your posterity and shall even participate in the enslavement and destruction of your posterity and of the
    posterity of your kindred in the Land Southward.
  • Wherefore, from among them I shall raise up prophets who shall cry even against them and they shall cast them out and persecute them. But out of their loins shall spring blood mixed with your own, a prophet and seer, and he shall bring to light the writings of the Nemenhah.
  • Behold, he shall receive of that great gentile prophet, of whom I have spoken, and shall be gathered in from out of the loins of the Kings and Queens of the Earth.
  • And he shall forsake the world even to his hurt and shall prove the more faithful
    because of tribulation.
  • Unto this prophet shall I reveal the writings of your fathers, and even of your posterity that he may also write it.
  • And I shall command him that he shall bring the book, even your writings, to light and shall show it unto your posterity.
  • Behold, I declare unto you that your posterity shall come unto Me and they shall rise up when I shall subdue the nations in My name, and they shall be a delightsome people and shall bring again My Zion (Ougou 180-184).”
  • “But the gentiles will rule the land for a season and prosper and through them also will I do a great work.
  • Yea, I will begin to teach them and through them shall much be restored and I shall establish them according to My purposes.
  • Wherefore, your descendents will dwindle in unbelief and shall be subdued by
    the gentiles.
  • And this is wisdom in Me for your posterity shall be oppressed and enslaved (Ougou 188).”
  • “Therefore, be diligent.
  • Yea, be faithful.
  • Fulfill all My commandments and make strait My ways.
  • And write your doings unto your descendents and hide them up.
  • Yea, do ye this secret work unto futurity, for I will bring forth your works in the day that I do cleanse Mine house (Ougou 193).”
  • And so Heinmet who lived 1800 years ago, sees our church and prophecies concerning us in our modern day.
  • The Book of Heinmet:

Chapter One

20) And the whole earth shall be in turmoil in that day.

And behold, the Saints shall cry out:

Why did the Lord not warn us of this calamity?

Why were we not made aware before the tribulation came upon us?

Are we not the Lord’s chosen people?

Have we not raised up our altars unto the Lord and have we not built unto Him great Temples?

And wherefore does He treat us so, that we suffer in the sight of all the
world, being His own people?

21) And in this manner shall the people lift up their complaint unto their God.

But, even worse, before the calamity shall come upon them, they shall be puffed up in their pride and shall claim that theirs is the only access to Heaven.

Yea, they shall despise prophecy and shall look only to their shepherds, believing that
the Lord shall do nothing save He reveal His secrets unto His servants, the prophets.

And, believing their shepherds to be the prophets of whom the scriptures speak, they shall wait upon the word of such and shall be faithful to the will of such.

22) But, can they who labor under the condemnation of the Lord be called His servants?

I will grant you that they may love Him and serve Him.

But, can we say that He employs such to be the Shepherds of His flock?

23) Are these they of whom the promise is given, that the Lord shall reveal His secrets unto them?

How can this be?

Or if it truly be, for the Lord is benevolent and I hold nothing beyond Him, shall they give heed to His warnings, or do you think that they will justly render unto the Saints the warnings of the Lord that do rightly condemn them and their teachings?

24) Or, more plainly, can such who have ignored the clear instruction of the Lord be relied upon to convey with honor and with truth a warning which does condemn they who controvert His word?

And howbeit, if such warning be given that instruct the Saints to do that which is not deemed economical in the eyes of such shepherds, shall they be relied upon for any intelligence?

25) Behold, I have seen the day of which I speak.

Yea, and I speak unto you who live in that day as if you were here and I with you even in the same room.

Whom else would you respect in this manner?

You
would not exact such standards upon the least of your laborers or merchants – that they speak and act in one wise and yet act in another.

But, even though you have daily proof that your shepherds do set aside that which they have admittedly already received of the Lord, you would expect to be given timely
warning of the Lord so that you might effectively pack up all your fine clothing, yea, your fine twined linen, and your gold and silver, and all your costly things and escape with them into the wilderness and thus avoid disaster.

26) And what then?

Will you, with all your stuff, build there a Zion where all things are had in common?

And what of your neighbor who was too slow to respond to the warning of the Lord and was unable to escape with more than the things on his back?

Will you impart unto him that he might provide for his children after you have carried all your goods away with you?

27) Nay, I say unto you, I see your day and I see into your hearts.

You shall judge the man and his children even down to the sixth generation, just as you have already done.

At best you will give unto them but a trifle and they shall be driven from camp to camp making their way by beggary.

Thus shall you treat the warnings of the Lord, and shall He abide it?

28) And because the man was slow to respond in that instant to the warnings of the Lord, given by extortion because you have elected yourselves, and that He is generous where you are not, you shall deny that one.

Yet, how quick have you been, even you who deem yourselves fortunate, to wait upon that intelligence of the future which the Lord has seen fit to bestow upon they who came before you?

Are you not even the same beggar who has ever been slow to act?

Or do you think that your riches will serve you bread and butter in the day of your calamity?

29) Nay, but a breath apart from your judgment of your fellow for his sloth, you shall eat your bread and choke on the ashes.

Yea, you shall drink and it shall be molten.

Do not think that because the Lord is generous He will bless you who so easily curse your neighbor to want, hunger and the chill.

30) Behold, you see that I do esteem you rightly.

Do not deny it. For I have also seen that you deny many good and righteous things in your day.

Yea, you wish to benefit from the bounty of the world and yet you deny the source of that bounty.

You wrest from created things even the ability to fulfill the measure of their creation.

How can you think to gain abundance when you kill the child in the womb?

31) And when you are called upon to rely once again upon the fruit of the womb of the earth to earn your
bread, can you deny that you caused her aforetime to cast her get upon the ground?

How can you claim election, and how can you claim that you are Saintsof God, you who have broken the very Law of Creation?

Shall you shake the heel at the Creator and then chasten Him in His neglect of you in the time of your travail?

32) You may think that it is enough of this youngster from out of the dust to cite your mistreatment of the Law of Consecration to your condemnation, and that I should hold my tongue and speak not concerning the abomination you have condoned even in the midst of your high places.

But I beseech you, can you get a blessing from the Lord, being condemned of Him?

You are filled with confusion, and to the brimming!

33) Behold, we look ahead and see your day and shudder.

And it is a warning unto us.

Yea, we in part more fully strive to keep the Laws of God because He has seen fit to show us your day and your treatment of them.

And behold, this does convince us the more fully of our fortune that we do live in our day. Do not you look back unto our day and wish to live in it, for, we would look on you affrighted and with wonder.

34) Nay, read not these words and look back longing, but read them and look ahead.

Repent and have hope!

Else, and all else is lost to you.

The Book of Heinmet The Son of Pa Natan 206 A.D.

Greetings all,

I will begin my speaking to the four sacred directions to all my relations;

I have been invited by The Great Spirit, to be the talking feather of this council…

I feel it a great privilege and honor, it be a part of this generation of the end times restoration that began in 1830 The Church of Christ Restored by the prophet Joseph Smith…

I believe I am the fifth generation of that restoration…

Here are my generations on my maternal side of the family;

Jonathon Calkins Wright baptized by Hiram Smith  (Joseph Smith’s brother)

Ruban Miller Wright

Melba Amelia Wright Olsen (my grandmother deceased)

my mother and myself. ( still living )

And so, I believe, my children’s generation is being prophesied here in The Book Heinmet.

And I am thankful, to be a part of The Restoration of All Things as prophesied by all the ancient prophets, that are included, in the Nemenhah’s sacred family records… 206 A.D.

The Book of Heinmet

The Son of Pa Natan

Heinmet began his writings at age 17;

In the 6th generation after Christ’s visit to the Nemenhah of Mentinah.

He attributed the success of the nation to living the Laws of God.

Particularly the Law of Consecration.

He forewarned of the last days.

He became high priest and listed the duties of this office.

In the 206th year following Christ’s visit;

rumors came of divisions among people in Land Southward.

A Great Council was held to decide the best way to defend Nemenhah lands against the Gadiantonhem.

Their decision lead to a change that threatened the Nemenhah way of life.

  The Great Council of Wit Chit Tim ;

Sends Mormon and his son Mormon and others, to observe in the Land Southward.

Chapter One

1) I am Heinmet, the son of Pa Natan and Shi-Pahorat.

And my mother was clerk and high priest of the city of Mentinah, wherefore, she gave ofher whole life in the service of her city and her fellows. I do give honor unto her, for surely she was among the greatest of the high priests of Mentinah and led her people
wisely.

2) And when Pa Natan was about to give up the ghost, she gave her staff to me.

Wherefore, I take up her task and write somewhat about my people and my family. For, this is the custom among my family – to write concerning the doings of my family and of my people during the duration of my life.

In this, we provide a genealogy for the benefit of our posterity, and also our own witness of that which the Holy Ghost does impress upon us.

And we deem this of use,or rather, we hope that our words and sentiments, and somewhat of our own history, might be of worth to they who come after us.

Yea, we desire it to be of worth, and that the Holy Ghost does come upon us to write such things, we believe that it is for a good purpose in the Lord.

3) Now, I am but a young man and not much experienced in either the ways of the world or of the Spirit.

Yea, I am but seventeen years of age.

Nevertheless, I do begin my record, according to the will of my mother and also to the custom of my people.

Wherefore, I would ask of you who read it to take into account that I am not an old man full of wisdom and that my vision of the world is only that of one who has never traveled in it, nay, nor even conversed much with they who have.

4) Nevertheless, I am constrained by the Spirit to write such things as seem to me important.

Therefore, I do begin my record.

5) Behold, it is now six generations since the Lord did visit the Nemenhah of the city of Mentinah and we have enjoyed continual peace in the land since that time.

Yea, there has been no war in all the land and nothing has disturbed our peace.

And we believe that this is because of our strict adherence to the Laws of God.

And the principle of these Laws, to which we ascribe our success and our peace, are the Law of the Gospel, the Law of Sacrifice, the Law of Chastity and Fidelity, and the Law of Consecration.

6) Above all, I believe we owe our success as a nation and a community of nations to the Law of Consecration.

For, it is by observance of this law that this nation and its neighbors do come out of Babylon.

Yea, we do forsake the world and adhere to the Lord’s Law of Economy, having not a desire to get gain unto our own holding and dominion, but rather, only a desire to gain abundance both for ourselves and for our neighbors.

7) Behold, we would not have riches, fine apparel and costly things, and also see our brothers and our sisters languish in want and necessity.

But, if it becomes the fashion to have such things, it is only because all may have them together.

And this has become a law unto us and to all the villages and settlements round
about us.

8) And this shall be a sign unto whom the Earth might yield up this record:

In the latter days the Lord will raise up His Church once again unto the people.

Yea, through a prophet He will begin to restore that which had lain seemingly dormant for many lives of men.

And through His Church He will cause the Gifts of the Spirit once again to pour out upon the earth to heal her.

9) But behold, before this little church shall have had but one generation in which to grow, and the Saints begin to enjoy once again great blessings from Heaven.

They shall reject even such things as the Lord shall provide with His own mighty hand.

Yea, before one generation has passed, the Lord shall declare the very Saints of God under His mighty condemnation, and this condemnation shall not be lifted to the sixth generation.

10) Yea, this condemnation shall stand in effect until the children of the restoration shall finally begin to turn their hearts away from the world and from Babylon.

And this shall be a sore vexation for them.

For, they shall have the great gifts which the Lord shall have given them before they turned from His paths, and they shall remember still the Gifts of the Spirit which He did cause to be poured out upon their forefathers.

11) Yet behold, they shall have been led by shepherds whose concerns are for the getting of gain and of great wealth, and even their attempts to live the Law of Consecration shall be muddied and polluted by the principles of the world that their leading men shall introduce into their experiments.

Yea, and they shall fail utterly to live the law that contains and controls the abundance.

In the end, yea, and by the time the Lord shall wax in His impatience with them, they shall have cast aside the Law of Consecration almost entirely.

12) Now, I would exhort you to contemplate upon the patience and the long suffering of the Lord.

Is it ever of short duration?

I say unto you, Nay.

He does wait long upon His patience and He does give unto the children of men much opportunity to repent.

But, do not think that He may be relied upon to turn away His eye as you make sport of His holy laws.

He is not to be trifled with, nay, nor shall He be mocked.

13) For they who think they are Saints, yea, they who do trust in His long suffering, but do so with bad intention, shall think themselves safe in a place where the Lord shall hide and protect His choice and elect children.

But can this be so when His children do spurn His counsel and set aside His commandments?

What is worse, can this be so when they make solemn vows and covenants unto Him to keep His laws and His commandments but turn away from them almost in the same breath?

I say unto you, Nay!

14) Behold, the condemnation, that shall have fallen upon them even from their first generation, shall not begin to be lifted until the sixth.

(Joseph Smith establishes the church 1830-2014=184 yrs later, we as a people still  do not live all thing in common.) (Is this prophecy from Heinmet, being fulfilled in my generation.)

In that day (Now)there shall be some few among the Saints who shall see the path to redemption from the curse laid upon their fathers.

Yea, they shall turn away the face from Babylon and shall cease to lay up in their hearts the things of the world.

Yea, they shall no longer view their stewardship as having to do only with themselves, but shall regard the suffering of others as theirs as well.

15) Yea, they shall cease to build beyond that which they actually need, but with their surplus they shall even build a canopy for their neighbor.

Yea, they shall become stewards of the Lord’s Footstool.

And cease to puff themselves up.

They shall cease to attempt to wrest from the Lord what is His.

They shall cast down their towers and their great buildings and once again embrace the earth.

16) For, is it not written that, even as the Heavens shall pour forth a blessing such that there shall be no room to accommodate it in the storehouse;

So shall the Earth also give of Her Bounty abundantly?

Also and the hearts of the children shall be turned to the fathers.

Yea, all that the Earth does hold up and guard securely;

She shall pour out upon the inhabitants of the land, and the hearts of the fathers shall be turned to the children.

17) Wherefore, blessings shall fall down from heaven and blessings shall pour up from the earth, and the whole earth shall be filled to overflowing.

Yea, then shall the face of the earth be flooded withrighteousness.

Wherefore, out of a curse shall flow blessings, and this is within the power of all the Saints in the last days.

But only if they will.

Yea, only when they will.
18) But behold, they shall think to be waiting upon the Lord.

Yea, they shall claim to be waiting upon His word.

But look!

He has already spoken it.

Do you suppose that you may not look upon your ancestors,
who have felt of this out-flowing of the blessings of Heaven and Earth;

And fail to learn to take up Zion in your hearts?

19) Do you think to wait for the wise to see the folly of their own teachings?

What?

Shall the Scribe or the Pharisee, or the Doctor of the laws of men discern their condemnation?

Nay!

But they shall cry peace and safety when all security is gone.

Woe and thrice woe be unto they who so rely upon the arm of the flesh.

Verily, they shall be surprised when the Lord does reward they who understand and call upon His holy name, and stay His hand toward they who but call upon His name in vanity.

20) And the whole earth shall be in turmoil in that day.

And behold, the Saints shall cry out: Why did the Lord not warn us of this calamity?

Why were we not made aware before the tribulation came upon us?

Are we not the Lord’s chosen people?

Have we not raised up our altars unto the Lord and have we not built unto Him great Temples?

And wherefore does He treat us so, that we suffer in the sight of all the world, being His own people?

21) And in this manner shall the people lift up their complaint unto their God.

But, even worse, before the calamity shall come upon them, they shall be puffed up in their pride and shall claim that theirs is the only access to Heaven.

Yea, they shall despise prophecy and shall look only to their shepherds, believing that the Lord shall do nothing save He reveal His secrets unto His servants, the prophets.

And, believing their shepherds to be the prophets of whom the scriptures speak, they shall wait upon the word of such and shall be faithful to the will of such.

22) But, can they who labor under the condemnation of the Lord be called His servants?

I will grant you that they may love Him and serve Him.

But, can we say that He employs such to be the Shepherds of His flock?

23) Are these they of whom the promise is given, that the Lord shall reveal His secrets unto them?

How can this be?

Or if it truly be, for the Lord is benevolent and I hold nothing beyond Him, shall they give heed to His warnings, or do you think that they will justly render unto the Saints the warnings of the Lord that do rightly condemn them and their teachings?

24) Or, more plainly, can such who have ignored the clear instruction of the Lord be relied upon to convey with honor and with truth a warning which does condemnthey who controvert His word?

And howbeit, if such warning be given that instruct the Saints to do that which is not deemed economical in the eyes of such shepherds, shall they be relied upon for any intelligence?

25) Behold, I have seen the day of which I speak. Yea, and I speak unto you who live in that day as if you were here and I with you even in the same room.

Whom else would you respect in this manner?

You would not exact such standards upon the least of your laborers or merchants;

That they speak and act in one wise and yet act in another.

But, even though you have daily proof that your shepherds do set aside that which they have admittedly already received of the Lord, you would expect to be given timely warning of the Lord so that you might effectively pack up all your fine clothing.

Yea, your fine twined linen, and your gold and silver, and all your costly things and escape with them into the wilderness and thus avoid disaster.

26) And what then?

Will you, with all your stuff, build there a Zion where all things are had in common?

And what of your neighbor who was too slow to respond to the warning of the Lord and was unable to escape with more than the things on his back?

Will you impart unto him that he might provide for his
children after you have carried all your goods away with you?

The Restoration of All Things is still On going Today … 2 Nephi 3:24 Is it Chief Joseph an Indian Prophet or Joseph Smith or Both?

 Greeting all my relations,

With honor, Let me begin my speaking, by saying:

Let’s all come together from; The Four Directions

All of Us and Everything, The Whole Creation

And the angels of; The Four Directions

And The Elements; of The Four Directions

The animals, The plants;

The Sun, Moon and Stars

The Whole Cosmos, All of Creation

All The Family of Mankind;

Red, Yellow, Black, White

Let’s have a sacred talk about The Restoration of All Things;

And The Gathering of All in One

Spoken of by prophets, and holy men;

and in diverse times and sundry places;

By The Son of God Himself.

The gospel of Jesus Christ is;

All Things above and below and all people being sealed as One.

Sealed in Covenants through The Holy Spirit of Promise.

The Lord’s People have All Things in Common.

Including Mother Earth…

In The Creator’s Gospel, Men and Women are taught How to become;

One in Christ

and Joined in a Sacred Covenant

And We follow in The Footsteps of The First Man and The First Woman.

Think of yourselves as Adam and Eve

These sacred relationships are taught in The Temples and High Places.

Sacred Ordinances For The Living and The Dead.

They are taught to us by angels and Heavenly Beings

As we emerge, and follow The The Spirit to a Place in the Creation called

” The Way”

The Terrestrial Level we are taught How to Pray in a Circle;

With KEYS to Heaven;

Given to us each individually, by True Prophets of The Lords

With Sacred Promises to Live Celestial Laws

Or Make a personal Ceremony with The Pipe and Sacred Bundle (which represents The Garment and tokens and signs of the priesthood, given to our first parents Adam and Eve…

How to construct The Altar etc…

And Progress in The Four Sacred Covenants;

 The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the circle around the square;

The Four Laws and Covenants The Square within the Circle

The Fourth Covenant of Consecration

or The Sure Sign of The Nail;

or The Sign of The Healer

Peter:  by the authority given us of Jesus Christ, and by the commission which we have received of Him, we set you apart from among all men, and we bestow upon you an Endowment of Power.

By this endowment, you shall walk upon the Way and converse in the tongues of Angels, for you shall be instructed by them.

We give you the keys of the Priesthood and of the Gifts of the Spirit.

Seek now the face of your God! Amen.
Peter: It is well.

Although we have set you apart and given you the gifts of the Spirit by the laying on of hands, this is only the promise or the opportunity to receive them.

The realization of this endowment depends entirely upon your faithfulness in seeking the face of God.

Principle among these gifts is the gift of healing.

The power of the Healer is in the hands.

Its tokens are the many things on this earth that Elohim Heavenly Mother has provided for the healing of the body and the spirit.

The sign of this gift is
given by the Father so that you will always remember that the gifts of God work best when they are linked together, just as the health of the body is determined by the proper functioning of all the organs.

And disease is defined by the dysfunction of the organs, one or all.

To remind you of this token, you shall always wear a continuous green thread around your waist, either in the form of an apron or sewn directly into your garments.

The mark is sewn directly into your garment top over the navel. (health in the navel)

50) Peter: We are instructed to give unto you the second token of the higher priesthood.

It is the Sign of the Healer, the Patriarchal Grip or Sure Sign of the Nail.

It has a name, but it will not be given to you until a time and place which shall be given to you hereafter.

Break for Instruction
(The assembly is now instructed as to the purpose of the Law of Consecration.

The Law of Consecration is discussed.

The men and the women receive it by covenant, along with the second token of the Higher Priesthood.

The man representing Peter recites the Revelation on Consecration from the Book of Discipleship, which has been added to the Book of the High Place for this generation.

This is when you become a disciple of Jesus Christ

And receive His Commission “Calling”

The Way is discussed, as are the gifts of the spirit.)
Resume Session

The Holy Medicine Man or Woman

Chapter Six
1) Peter: All of you covenant to obey the Law of Consecration, whereby, you consecrate all that you have received from the Lord, all that you do now receive from the Lord, and all that you will yet receive, unto the Lord for His purposes.

You will utilize the gifts of God for your own maintenance and with the
surplus you covenant to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, lift up the hands that hang down, and to shoulder each other’s burdens.

All of you, bow your heads and say, Yes.
2) Peter: That will do.

We will now demonstrate the token of the Higher Priesthood.

This is the token of
the Higher Priesthood:

The giver and the receiver of the token grasp each other by the right hands,
interlocking the little finger and the index finger pressing against the inside of the wrist.

This is the Sure Sign of the Nail, or, the Nail in the Sure Place, and is intended to cause the giver of the token, as also the receiver, to contemplate the surety of the sacrifice of the Son of God, who was hung upon the tree and that all things created are linked together by the Atonement of the Son.

When Jesus was crucified, nails were driven through the center of the palm, and, to prevent the nail from pulling through the flesh of the hand, other nails were driven through the wrist.

This is the sign and the token.

This token is to be kept sacred until a time and place specified hereafter, or until that instance in which the Holy Ghost prompts that it be utilized.

3) Peter: We desire all to receive it. All arise.

4) Peter: That will do.

5) Peter: Adam and Eve, we have been instructed to introduce you into the Terrestrial World upon the Way which the Creator has made for this purpose.

You will recall that before you were driven into the lonely world, you lived in constant contact with the Creator.

He desires that you come once again into His presence.

He has created a place which He calls the Way, upon which you may walk.

In this place you will come into contact with Angels;

The spirits of just men and women made perfect;

And even with Jesus Himself, to be instructed in all that you need to do to come once again into the presence of the Father and the Mother.

6) Adam: How can this be?

Can a mortal man stand in the presence of Heavenly Beings?

7) Peter: You may not stand in the presence of Heavenly Beings and live in the mortal flesh.

But in your spirit you may walk the Way and be instructed by Heavenly Beings while your flesh is preserved and safeguarded.

For, you have been true and faithful in all that the Lord has seen fit to command you.

Because of this, He will make a change in your spiritual substance, such that, should you come into contact with exalted men and women, your flesh shall be preserved.

The Holy Ghost shall make this change upon you;

And you shall be sealed up unto Christ, being His.

Will you come with us upon this Way?

8) Adam:I will come upon this Way with you.

Yes, I would truly seek the face of my God!

9) Eve:I, too, would seek my Savior’s face.

I will come with you upon this Way.

10) Peter: Come, James and John.

Let us introduce Adam and Eve into the Terrestrial World so that they may
walk upon the Way with their ancestors.

11) Peter: We will now return and report.

12) Peter: Jehovah, we have been down to the man Adam and the woman Eve.

We have done all that You commanded us.

They have received all that You would have them receive;

And they do walk upon the Way.

This is our report.

13) Jehovah: It is well, Peter, James and John.

14) Jehovah: Elohim Heavenly Father. Peter, James and John have been down to the world which we have created together, as You commanded.

They have done all that we have commanded them to do.

The Man and the Woman have received all that You would give them and have taken upon themselves the Law of Consecration by covenant.

They have been introduced into the Terrestrial World upon the Way.

This is their report.

15) Elohim Heavenly Father:It is well, Jehovah. Go now with Peter, James and John, and visit Adam and Eve upon the Way We have provided for them.

Have Peter instruct them in the Right Order of Prayer.

Then instruct them as to the veil and its symbols.

When they have been prepared in all things, by receiving instruction upon the Way, even from those messengers and guides whom I will send to them, and even by Your own mouth, introduce them at the veil and I will converse with them there.

16) Jehovah:It shall be done, Elohim Heavenly Father.

Come, Peter, James and John, let us go to Adam and Eve upon the Way.

17) Jehovah: Adam and Eve, I am Jesus Christ who will come;

The Son of the Living God.

You have received My word by the mouths of these messengers whom the Father has sent you, and who have brought you here upon the Way.

If you are true and faithful, you shall also be brought to the Veil of Heaven to converse with the Father, here upon the Way.

18) Jehovah: Peter, instruct Adam and Eve concerning the Right Order of Prayer upon the Way.

19) Peter: It shall be done, Jehovah.

20) Peter: Adam, the Way is provided to all those whose intentions have proved good and faithful. Because of this, you may come to this sacred and safe place to receive more instruction, to pray, to meditate and to seek the face of the Lord.

When you come upon the Way, you will often be invited to pray in counsel with others who have also come here.

This is the order of prayer when you offer this oblation in counsel.

You shall stand together in a circle;

For all truth may be circumscribed into one eternal round;

or Great Hoop

and what you send out into the Universe shall surely come back to you.

You shall recite all the tokens and signs that you have been given;

For this denotes attention and exactness in following the counsels of God.

You shall also make the signs of the gifts of the Spirit you have received, especially the sign of the Gift of Healing, for it represents the power given you of the Father and the Mother whereby you are given health in the navel, marrow in the bones, strength in the loins and in the sinews.

Verily, the gifts of the Spirit bestow the power of the Lord’s priesthood upon you and all your posterity, through all generations of time, and throughout all eternity.

When you have done these things, you shall call upon the Lord three times;

As you have been taught to do, and you shall offer prayer unto the Lord;

Not forgetting the sick and the needy.

If you do this with faith and pure intent, the Lord will answer your prayer.

21) Peter: Let us now gather in the Right Order of Prayer.

22) Peter: Each of you make the signs of the High Place as you have been instructed to do.

23) Peter: That will do.

Now, let each man take the woman or man at his left by the right hand with the Sure Sign of the Nail and raise his left arm up to heaven.

Let the elbow of his left arm rest upon the right shoulder of the person to his left.

In this way the circle is completed and the prayer is carried up into heaven with the combined energy of all the participants.

We are one heart and one mind, and we have all
prayer and supplication in common.

24) Peter: That will do.

25) Jehovah: It is well, Peter. I will no

I will now explain the Veil of Heaven.

There is a Veil of Forgetfulness that separates you from Father.

This veil is within you.

As you walk upon the Way and receive instruction;

From Angels, the spirits of just men and women made perfect, and from Myself.

This Veil of Forgetfulness will become thin.

However, you cannot come into the presence of the Father and the Mother, except
through intervention, either by Me or by the Holy Ghost.

When you come upon the Way, you do receive that intervention, and I may introduce you at the very Veil of Heaven to converse with the Father.

When you have received this Endowment of Power, you shall make symbols to wear that will remind you to come upon the Way often to converse with Heavenly Beings.

These symbols should include a triangle pointing heavenward;

Representing your own attempt to communicate with God.

You should also include a triangle pointing earthward;

Representing God’s attempt to communicate with you.

When these symbols are combined, they shall remind you of the Way;

For the combination of your attempt to communicate with God and God’s attempt to communicate with you, is a right understanding of the very real need for come upon the Way often to converse with Heavenly Beings.

These symbols should include a triangle pointing heavenward, representing your own attempt to communicate with God.

You should also include a triangle pointing earthward, representing God’s attempt to communicate with you.

When these symbols are combined, they shall remind you of the Way;

For the combination of your attempt to communicate with God and God’s attempt to communicate with you;

Is a right understanding of the very real need for personal and continuous revelation.

Wear this symbol whenever you engage in the ordinances of the High Place;

To remind you of your responsibility upon the Way.

When you have overcome the Natural Man, you shall have become Mine indeed.

In that moment, the veil will be taken away and shall no longer exist in you.

Adam and Eve have been true and faithful in all that we have taught them.

Let us now return and report our labors.

27) Jehovah: Elohim Heavenly Father,

We have been to the Way and visited with Adam and Eve.

We have instructed them as You did command and they have remained true and faithful to all that You have given them.

28) Elohim Heavenly Father:It is well, Jehovah. Go again to Adam and Eve and teach them the Second Anointing.

Stand with them and make their Calling and Election sure, preparatory to introducing them at the Veil of Heaven to converse with Me.

And Sealed In Us By The Holy Spirit of Promise

Giving us Personal revelation

“Wayaykihn”

Do you find it strange how you the Gentiles (after the death of Joseph Smith) are so devoid of revelation and understanding?

The last revelation know as D&C 138 given in the year 1918.

It’s been almost 100 years since a revelation was given for the church (LDS)

Didn’t the Lord say of such through Isaiah ? 

But, behold, in the last days, or in the days of the Gentiles—yea, behold all the nations of the Gentiles and also the Jews, both those who shall come upon this land and those who shall be upon other lands, yea, even upon all the lands of the earth, behold, they will be drunken with iniquity and all manner of abominations—

For behold, the Lord hath poured out upon you;

“The Spirit of Deep Sleep.”

For behold, ye have closed your eyes, and ye have rejected the prophets; and the seers hath he covered because of your iniquity. (2 Nephi 27)

You cannot see far ahead – Truly the Times of Gentiles are Fulfilled –

Now is the time….

The Indian Restoration began with Smoholla, aka The Hunchback Prophet

The Sees Far Spirit, has been restored to some of us!

The Hoop and The Ancient Medicine Wheel many more marvelous works and wonders are returning through the Indian Prophets and Medicine Men

10 And thus commandeth the Father that I should say unto you:

At that day when the Gentiles shall sin against my gospel, and shall reject the fulness of my gospel, and shall be lifted up in the pride of their hearts above all nations, and above all the people of the whole earth, and shall be filled with all manner of lyings, and of deceits, and of mischiefs, and all manner of hypocrisy, and murders, and priestcrafts, and whoredoms, and of secret abominations; and if they shall do all those things, and shall reject the fulness of my gospel, behold, saith the Father, I will bring the fulness of my gospel from among them.

11 And then will I remember my covenant which I have made unto my people, O house of Israel, and I will bring my gospel unto them. (3 Nephi 16)

30 And in that generation shall the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. (DyC 45)

The Nemenhah were Restored in 2002

John The Beloved and The Three Nephites and The Nemenhah will lead the Zion Church…

They will Lead the Church and have the Keys. Yes!

Israel will have the Keys again and be Restored to the land of their Inheritance.

And unlike the Gentiles who refused the the Matriarchal Order given by Heavenly Mother to all Her daughters Law of Consecration and All Things in Common,

The Nemenhah have restored it, for the Glory of Chirst and ZION!!!

3 Nephi 29
8 Yea, and ye need not any longer hiss, nor spurn, nor make game of the Jews, nor any of the remnant of the house of Israel; for behold, the Lord remembereth his covenant unto them, and he will do unto them according to that which he hath sworn.

9 Therefore ye need not suppose that ye can turn the right hand of the Lord unto the left, that he may not execute judgment unto the fulfilling of the covenant which he hath made unto the house of Israel.

Isaiah 28
21 For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.

3 Nephi 30
1 Hearken, O ye Gentiles, and hear the words of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, which he hath commanded me that I should speak concerning you, for, behold he commandeth me that I should write, saying:

2 Turn, all ye Gentiles, from your wicked ways; and repent of your evil doings, of your lyings and deceivings, and of your whoredoms, and of your secret abominations, and your idolatries, and of your dmurders, and your priestcrafts, and your envyings, and your strifes, and from all your wickedness and abominations, and come unto me, and be baptized in my name, that ye may receive a remission of your sins, and be filled with the Holy Ghost, that ye may be numbered with my people who are of the house of Israel.

“And there shall rise up one mighty among them…”

In 2 Nephi 3:24 it reads: “And there shall rise up one mighty among them”..

The Book of Mormon today has in the footnote for this verse “Joseph Smith” as being the one who will rise up, however, earlier versions of the Book of Mormon have it recorded as “an Indian Prophet”. Here is a link of a scanned copy of an earlier edition of the Book of Mormon showing the original footnote: http://www.weepingforzion.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/From-1905-BoM-indian-prophet.jpg

Without going into too many details it is impossible for Joseph Smith to be the “one mighty among them” as Joseph Smith is a pure Ephraimite.

Lehi clearly states that this mighty person will come from the “seed” of his youngest son Joseph.

Not only is it impossible for Joseph Smith to be the “one mighty among them”, but Even Spencer W. Kimball apparently knew it was not Joseph Smith when he gave a talk (as the Prophet) and spoke about this very scripture.  

Below is the conference talk reference with a quote from the talk:

President Spencer W. Kimball: “The Lamanites must rise in majesty and power.” (Conference Reports, Oct. 1947)

“The Lamanites must rise in majesty and power.

We must look forward to the day when they will be “white and delightsome” (2 Ne. 5:21; 2 Ne. 30:6), sharing the freedoms and blessings which we enjoy; when they shall have economic security, culture, refinement, and education; when they shall be operating farms and businesses and industries and shall be occupied in the professions and in teaching; when they shall be organized into wards and stakes of Zion, furnishing much of their own leadership; when they shall build and occupy and fill the temples, and serve in them as the natives are now serving in the Hawaiian Temple where I found last year the entire service conducted by them and done perfectly.

And in the day when their prophet shall come, one shall rise. . . mighty among them . . . being an instrument in the hands of God, with exceeding faith, to work mighty wonders (2 Ne. 3:24).”

 2 Nephi 3:24 is either “an Indian Prophet” or “Joseph Smith”.
Now I can easily see how leaving it as “an Indian Prophet” would cause people to wonder who that might be especially after a Prophet such as Spencer W. Kimball says

“And in the day when their prophet shall come” meaning to me at least that we still haven’t seen this “one mighty” person at least not up to 1947 we hadn’t.

So the church changing it to Joseph Smith squashes any curiosities and interest as to when that prophecy is going to be fulfilled.

The Indian Prophet spoken of in 2 Nephi 3:

This man has had “class” that the Anglo-gentiles do not tell in their history lessons.

He was baptized and christened, Ephraim, but became known as Young Joseph since his biological father was baptized and christened, Joseph.

The two of themselves had similar beliefs particular to the Nez Perce (Numi Puu) which are teachings of the Nemenhah heritage of old!

Numi’Pu
“I am Tuelkakas, whom the People still call Wahlamotkin, for I desire to restore the People of Wallahowah.

It is for this cause that I have returned among the People of the Chopunish and have
married myself to one of their daughters, even a Mother of the People.

And I have reestablished the village where my forefathers first settled upon the lake.

I have planted my lodge and my hearth in the earth where my ancestors once lived and flourished above all the People of the Great River, even all the people who speak the Sehaptin tongue.

And we are Numi’Pu once again, and our neighbors call us Chopunish and Tsu’Peli (Wallahowah 11:7-8).”

(Also, the Nemenhah Band and Native American Traditional Organization who owns the copyright of the Mentinah Archives was first known as Numi’Pu Tsu’Peli Chopunish. Shortly after the Mentinah Archives began to be released, we were kindly asked by the Nez Perce if we would change our name because they called themselves by a similar name as Numi’Pu.

Cloudpiler brought the request before the Peli Council.

We felt their request was just.

We desired no bad feelings between our peoples.

Now that we were learning of our ancestors, we also desired to take upon ourselves their name and so we unanimously voted to change our name to what it is today; the Nemenhah Band and Native American Traditional Organization.

In the past we called ourselves the Numi’Pu, which is the shorten version of our name. Today we call ourselves the Nemenhah, which again is the shorten version of our name.)

See: “Numi’Pu Tsu’Peli Chopunish” References: Copyright page, Short History, Copyright page High Place, Wallahowah 6:5, 11:8 Numi’Pu Tsu’Peli Chopunish

When the Mentinah Archives was first released, this was the Native American Band which held the copyright. {The Nez Perce call themselves by a similar name to Numi’Pu.

Because of this, they respectfully requested the band change their name.

The Numi’Pu Peli Council discussed this and felt the Nez Perce request should be honored.

The Mentinah Archives had been released by this time.

The council unanimously felt that “Nemenhah Band and Native American Traditional Organization” should be the new name of the band, wishing to call ourselves Nemenhah after our ancestors.

The copyright of the Mentinah Archives stayed within the band.

The volumes show Nemenhah Band holding the copyright since 2006.}

These teachings are written in “the Sacred Records of the Nemenhah;

The Mentinah Archives, and is a very important testimony of the Catherman family of Philip “Cloudpiler” Landis.

Philip’s paternal grandmother is born partly of the lineage of “Smohalla” and became ‘spiritually adopted’ by Chief Joseph when she had become orphaned as a very small child.

This testimony I have twice heard from the biological father of Cloudpiler.

In the literal sense, Chief Joseph was the High Priest of the Nemenhah Peli system.

The Peli have a highly regarded practice of ‘spiritual adoption’ for their religious teachings of faith in the Holy Ghost (Spirit).

This practice is now led by Cloudpiler in the Native American Traditional Organization who are given authority from some key members of the Native American Church, namely: Chief Leslie Fool Bull – Head of the Rosebud NAC, Richard ‘He Who Has The Foundation’ Swallow-Chief of the Eagle Clan/ Lakota, Head of the Rosebud and Wounded Knee Native American Churches & a Co-Founder of the Oklevueha/Sioux Allied NAC, and James W. ‘Flaming Eagle’ Mooney-a Co-Founder and CEO of the Oklevueha/Sioux Allied NAC.

The Rosebud Native American Church (has been granted the right to practice by Act of Congress); and, Phillip R. ‘Cloudpiler’ Landis (descendent of Sanhempet) is certified as President and CEO of the Oklevueha Native American Church of Sanpete by James W. F. E. Mooney, “for as long as he walks Mother Earth.”

On November 11, 2004, the first release of the English translations was made available to members of the Numi’Pu Tsu’Pehli Chopunish (now known as the Nemenhah), under the title “Mentinah Archives.”

They Were Determined to Create Zion in Their Hearts…….. 2 Pa-Natan Part IV

Greetings all my relations,

I am thankful to be here today.

We walk in a sacred manor and we talk in a sacred manor.

If I were going to be The Talking Feather in this council, I would begin by speaking the words of Pa-Natan…  

The Second Book of Pa-Natan

Chapter Three

1) It is agreeable to me, and the Spirit moves upon me;

To provide in this record that which might be useful to any that may read them with the intent to do as we have done.

And this, I deem, is consistent with the admonition given by Timothy, one of the Three.

Wherefore, I have written somewhat concerning our laws and our customs, and also as the Spirit has guided my stylus regarding the meaning of refuge.

2) And this, it seems, is a very important thing for all people to remember and to make part of their daily walk and thought.

For this cause, and not out of any desire in me to press home any one point of the
gospel over another, I do continue to write concerning these things.

3) Behold, during the stewardship of my father, Shimlei, a group of people came up out of the Land Southward to sojourn for a time in the land.

And, because they were not inclined to enter into that covenant whereby people are made Nemenhah, being the Law of Consecration, they were welcomed into the city of Mentinah, but no stewardship was given them.

4) And, after a time, the most of them returned unto their own land laden with what they had learned from the Elders and the Wise Ones of the city.

Surely, when they had spent much time in the High Place and also in the Libraries, they deemed it good to return again to their own homes and their own families in the Land Southward.

5) But behold, out of the bulk of the party there were three men who had no family in the Land of Zarahemlah, from whence they came, and they desired to remain with the Nemenhah and become joined with us.

6) Wherefore, when they had made the covenant whereby we have all things in common and whereby we are made of one heart and one mind, they were made members of our community and of the family of Nemenhah by adoption.

7) And when the council of the city and the high priest asked them as to what stewardships they might prefer, they answered that they would rather strike out into the far north and form a Lodge of the Nemenhah of their own – howbeit, if they were successful, they might form a new community of the Nemenhah.

And behold, the council was supportive and desirous for their success.

8) And the names of the three whose desire it was to spread the work of the Nemenhah into the far north were;

1.  Henmiet

2.  Josin

3.  Akim-tset

And while they were preparing for their journey;

These three looked upon women of the Nemenhah and found favor in the sight of three and took them to wife.

9) And the wife of Henmiet was Panith-Akekt;

And she was the daughter of Phenith-pel;

Who had been a Nephite from the City of Hez, in the Land Bountiful,  in the Land Southward.

And this same Phenith journeyed into the Land Northward and became known to the Nemenhah of Corianton of the Plains and they took him in.

And this Phenith took to wife the daughter of the high priest of the city of Tarramarhah and he was adopted into his family.

And the name of his wife was Sabel-nah.

Wherefore, Henmiet was adopted into the family of the high priest of Tarramarhah, whose name was Hamit.

10) And the wife of Akim-tset was Pac Reots;

  A descendent of Hagoth, and he was adopted into that family.

11) And the wife of Josin was Abind-nah;

Whose father traveled with his family also up out of the Land Southward, and was adopted into the family of Hago-Hal, the high priest of Mentinah.

12) Wherefore, these men and their wives made all preparations to travel far into the mountains of the north and to begin a new settlement.

And the Nemenhah of Mentinah and of Corianton gave of their surplus, and also the high priest of Mentinah gave of the storehouse, to provision them for their journey, and also they gave them that which they would require to begin a new city.

And behold, there were even young men who wished to go with them to see the more northern parts of the country, and they made plans to journey with the party, in order to lend their support to them upon the way.

13) And behold, when all preparation was made and all things were brought into order, the party set out and they did travel for the space of many days.

And they traveled over mountainous country and came to a river that flowed north.

Wherefore, they followed this river and, behold, the river dove into an exceedingly deep canyon. And, when the party had traveled into it one day’s journey, they discovered a delightsome place on a rise above the river to pitch up.

14) And, when they had taken counsel one with another,behold, they decided that this was a good location to make their settlement.

15) And they surveyed the land and determined the length and the breadth of the space they desired to make their settlement and divided it between the three families.

And behold, after they had made division sufficient for the needs of each family, there remained enough ground to sustain the needs of one hundred other families.

Wherefore, they did deem this to be a very good location for a settlement.

16) And they assisted each other in constructing homes, and also they constructed a common house for the young men who had accompanied them, and for those who might visit them thereafter.

And behold, they also built a Lodge, wherein they might perform the ordinances of the High Place and also for purification.

17) And this is the manner of Lodge that they built:

18) Behold, they measured three spans, even the length of a man’s arm, from the center and they marked off the hoop of the Lodge.

And they threw up a wall of stone and of mud along this hoop.

And the width of the wall was one span at the base and one half a span at the top.

And the height of the wall was not yet the height of a man, being two spans.

19) In the center of the Lodge, six posts were set and these were joined by timbers, and upon these timbers were set the beams of the roof.

And behold, there are thirteen beams in the roof of the Lodge.

And upon these beams they set stout limbs in hoops at every span rising up until the center was reached.

And now upon these limbs they wove supple twigs in and out until the whole was a basket of poles, limbs and twigs.

Into this basket they wove grasses until light could scarcely penetrate.

And upon this they cast earth and planted more grasses.

20) And in the center of the Lodge a hearth was built of uncut stones, and they were set into the hearth with mud and baked.

And the floor thereof was poured in mud and beaten well and smooth.

And the interior walls were finished in smooth mud with straw added thereto, also being beaten well and smooth, as also the exterior walls.

21) And in the center of the roof was set an opening one span square through which the smoke of the hearth could escape.

And this was set with timbers such that the opening could be closed as with a door and
sealed with woven cloth.

22) And behold, openings were set in the walls of the Lodge on the south and east side and none were set on the north or the west.

And in these openings were set timbers and lintels, and shutters were set therein.

And over the shutters were hung woven cloth.

23) And a low opening was set in the east of the Lodge and was hung with timbers and a stone lintel. And a stout timber door was set into the opening and heavy woven cloth was hung over the door.

24) And the same was the manner of homes which they built, except that they were larger in size, being taller and wider, and having many more poles in the roof.

And also the walls were taller and the door higher.

25) And behold, a hearth for cooking and for heating was set in the center thereof.

And behold, woven works of reeds were let down in order to allow the smoke of the hearth to rise up and escape through the roof at the center of the structure.

And also the ceiling and the walls of the structure were covered with woven and decorated cloth and of reeds.

26) And the same was the manner of the common house they built for the young men and for visitors. And this was the largest of the structures and in it were several separate rooms.

27) And behold, the same was the manner of the granary and the storehouses they built, except that they contained no openings except the door. Nor did these possess hearth or smoke hole.

28) And behold, they cast up the soil in a place beside the river upstream from the village and used an embankment to catch water from the river.

And water was brought in conduit from this catchment into the homes and houses, and also to provide a means whereby water might be brought to the land.

But behold, this water was not used for drinking until it was first passed through troughs filled with small stones for to cleanse and freshen the water.

29) And they did clear the land and plant corn and flax.

And behold, they did also harvest of the abundance of the land, for the earth was fertile and there was food everywhere.

30) Now, after that all was prepared and built up, the young men who had accompanied them and lent them of their strength did take their journey further into the region round about.

Wherefore, the three families were left to themselves.

31) All these things they were able to do in a timely manner and they did enjoy a good harvest in the first year.

And again they did plant, and again they did enjoy good harvest.

And behold, when the young men who had accompanied them into the north returned from their journey, they found all things prospering.

Yea, the families had set aside much provender by the sweat of their brow and even they had surplus to send down to Mentinah.

32) And the young men took the surplus down again to Mentinah and the council of the city sent more families up to them, along with beasts of burden and of wool.

And behold, thus did the settlement grow into a village in a very short space of years and the nameof the village is Nespelhem, which is the name of a serpent common in that place.

33) Now behold, the settlement has become so successful that they have divided into many and there are many such in that region of the land. And the city of Mentinah enjoys much commerce and trade with the many villages in that region.

34) This is the manner in which the Nemenhah have spread out to fill the whole of the land. And we prosper exceedingly because of the covenant we have made to assist one another in this manner.

35) Now consider all you who might read these things, if it be wisdom that you read them. For behold, these stout-hearted men and women did not flee into the wilderness, but they made good preparations beforehand.

Wherefore, their efforts were rewarded and only in the first year, or rather in the initial
setting up of the settlement, did they require assistance from Mentinah.

And in every year thereafter, they produced a surplus, to the extent that many more villages were formed, the original doing the assistance in their initial year.

36) And they gathered in so much surplus that when they had filled their own storehouses, they had wherewith to send to Mentinah for the support and assistance of all the Nemenhah.

37) And Nespelhem has become a hub of activity and commerce between Mentinah, and its cities round about, and the cities upon the great river;

That runs westward to the coast, for, it is built not far from the place where the river Nespelhem empties into the great river.

38) Now this prosperous city was established by three men and their wives, and but a few young men to help them erect their first homes and the Lodge.

Now, we see that it does not require a great people to create a refuge;

But it does require that the people have hearts to live a celestial law.

Yea, the people prospered so quickly because they were determined to create Zion in their hearts.

Then, when they desired to strengthen the stakes of Zion;

Verily, the Lord did prosper them.

39) All you who embark upon this same design, having a desire in your hearts to expand and strengthen the stakes of Zion, remember that the great success of the Nemenhah depended upon that covenant into which all entered, who would have place among the people, that made of them all one heart and one mind.

Yea, we have all things in common and we work diligently to provide for our neighbors.

And behold, it is according to our custom that, in working to provide for our brothers and sisters, all things are added unto us, for we are all relations.

Pa-Natan Teaches The Principle of Refuge to Build Zion……… 2 Pa-Natan Part III

Greetings all my relations,

It’s so nice to meet with you again, and lets continue with;

The Second Book of Pa Natan

The Daughter of Shimlei

Adoption by ceremony explained and those adopted by Shimlei listed.

Laws of governance were explained.

Pa Natan told about preparing a refuge, both physical and spiritual.

Nin-Shepa was shown and spoke prophetically of the decline of the Nemenhah, of the futurity of generations of peoples, of the present day, of the Remnant of Israel who would bring again Zion to the land before Christ came again.

Pa Shimuel was instrumental in developing the use of cylinders for use with
paper and ink for printing parts of the archives for use when one was traveling.

Pa Sibal set up libraries and places of learning.

She wrote genealogies of the Nemenhah high priests.

Pa Natan became high priest.

She told about the peace and brotherhood of all the Nemenhah peoples across the land.

Chapter Two

1) Now, it is certain that the Nemenhah had continual peace in the land during the years of my stewardship as clerk to the high priests of Mentinah.

But, that is not to say that there were no strifes or difficulties.

It is only to say that we did not go up to war in my days, for there were no real enemies in the land.

2) Notwithstanding, there was strife from time to time and this did usually concern interpretation of the law.

For behold, it is as I have written;

And also as others have written, that we had no lawyers.

Nor did any man or woman speak for another in all the land, but, when there were disputations;

Each person did stand for themselves before the councils of the Nemenhah.

And behold, the resolution of the dispute was made by thorough examination of evidence and testimony.

And, when a council had decided the matter, their decision was taken as a resolution of it.

3) But, on occasion, one party or another has disagreed with the decision of the council.

As often as this has taken place, and it has not been very often, the matter is taken to the general assembly, all evidence and testimony is read before the people of the city and they are asked to decide the matter.

4) This is a last resort and is only employed when the parties of a dispute will not uphold the decision reached in council. In this instance, the dispute becomes a new injury, one to the community as a whole, and is taken up by the people in assembly.

It is not a rehearsing of the original dispute, but rather, it is a new case.

5) For, our laws provide a means by which the disinterested may assist in resolving issues in which the parties have interest.

And it is by this means that strife and abuses are prevented in the resolution of such
disputes.

But, when the dispute rises above such disinterest and the parties begin to pile abuse upon the council for its service in the matter, then the injury is to the entire community and all have interest.

Wherefore, the very last council, and last resort, is the community at large.

6) Once the community and general assembly has heard all there is to say about a thing, then a vote is taken and the decision of the community stands.

If the parties continue in their strife, they are cast out from among the people.

If they repent of their strife and forgive each other, then they may continue in the
community and peace prevails.

7) Now, this custom, as also all the laws and customs of the Nemenhah, provide for us a refuge.

For, we do not worry that our safety and our happiness might be disturbed by forces of evil so long as we maintain a system of equity and justice that has for its foundation the very commandments of our Creator, our Redeemer and our God.

8) And a refuge is a place of safety, where unto the faithful might resort in time of need.

Yea, it is a place of physical safety from the elements and the storm.

And it is a place of peace, having all things prepared, where unto the faithful might go without flight and in full faculty.

9) Behold, this is important to our way of life.

For, we know that, in times past, yea, and we know that in all likelihood our futures may again see such times, that there are those who would seek to see the Lord’s work destroyed.

So then, shall the peace of the land become to us a memory?

10) For this very cause, our forefathers came up out of the Land Southward to escape the coming adversity among the Nephites.

Yea, they did resort into the Land Northward to avoid the pitfalls of pride and greed
that were becoming visible among their brethren.

And behold, they had no desire to fall prey to the same pitfalls.

Wherefore, they did leave the land of their fathers and come into an unknown land, but they left not in haste, nay, nor in flight.

11) Behold, they listened to the whisperings of the Holy Ghost and they made their preparations according to the promptings of the Spirit.

Wherefore, they were not caught up in crisis, for their sanctuary they prepared ahead of time and, though their journey was in earnest, nevertheless, they made their way with
good thought.

12) And they made for themselves a new homeland and a new country.

And they made for themselves laws that were calculated to preserve the peace of their new land. And they covenanted one with another to live the Laws of God, the which they had received by the mouths of the prophets.

13) Now, I would beseech you, behold this valley which we call the Place of Salt.

It has been an ensample for the building up of all the refuge places of the Land Northward.

Yea, it is a place of fastness and a place of safety.

It is difficult to reach and its walls are difficult to breach, for the Creator built them.

Yea, our walls are not the works of man, but the works of our God.

And is this not a good pattern and an ensample for us?

14) Ought we not to build our own fortress upon those principles we have learned from God?

And, if we do, who shall assail them?

Yea, who can assail that city which is surrounded by the rampart of God?

15) And, knowing their future needs, and having a full understanding of the threat of the Gadiantonhem, our forefathers came up into this mountainous region and they found this valley, which is accessible only through narrow defiles, and they built up a city and a nation.

And behold, to assail this valley will take many scores of thousands of men and swords, for the Lord has prepared it.

16) And should this not also be an ensample unto us? Should we not prepare such a place in our hearts?

For, the world does not go away for our desiring it.

Yea, the Gadiantonhem prevailed in the Land Southward before the coming of the Savior, and I doubt myself that they will ever truly go away.

Yea, methinks it probable that there will be this scourge again in the land.

Wherefore, I believe it was foresight in our parents to place our habitation here in this fast place.

17) Do you suppose that you are safe from that spirit which infests the hearts of the proud to possess the land and all that it contains?

Do you think that by natural law all men are free of that covetousness that corrupts the hearts and cankers the soul?

If you can look around you and see the roots still of such things, then I exhort you to prepare a place of refuge from the world.

18) For, we live in the world and there are the Lord’s adversaries all about us.

Prepare your heart and make of it a bulwark against that natural law that dictates the beastly heart of the natural man.

19) Begin this refuge by preparing for all your physical wants.

Make a fast place wherein you may have provender, should you be assailed.

Yea, I say that the first step to preparing a refuge is to lay up stores for yourselves and for your neighbors in a safe place.

And, when your physical wants and needs are provided, you will have the ease of mind that is required to set your inner house in order.

20) Yea, have food and drink set aside,as also tools and implements, medicines, and also keep a store of that material with which you do record your own doings.

Take no thought of the morrow, but lay up in store those articles you will need to preserve your lives in a time of crisis.

For behold, even in our safety, even in our peace, the Nemenhah do continually fill the storehouse.

Yea, there is food in the Lord’s house.

21) Behold, I speak unto all who might take up this record and read it.

And I know that my words shall be read by my own people in my own time.

But, I also know that you who read these things in a time far sundered shall have particular need of the pattern and the type that the Nemenhah have discovered in their practices, their customs and in their laws.

Wherefore, though it might be my duty unto my own people that causes me to take up my stylus and write, I deem it also my duty to take it up for the sake and benefit of my posterity, even as my fathers have done.

22) Now, consider the merits of the refuge which the Nemenhah have made for themselves in Mentinah.

To begin with, it is a place far distant from the Gadiantonhem and difficult to attain to.

The enemy is forced to traverse a wasteland to arrive at the place of fastness.

Once having arrived in the borders of the land, a great effort is still required to assail the fortress of the valley and the stout hearts of a very few men may hold off tens of thousands.

23) Yea, consider also the merits of the refuge which the Nemenhah of Corianton have made for themselves.

Behold, it is built in the farthest reaches of the north and, again, it is difficult to attain to.

And it is also surrounded by many bodies of water both large and small, creating a bulwark for all the surrounds of the city.

Wherefore, again, to find them out may not be difficult, but to assail them in their resort must require a great host.

Yet, their city is defended by few because of the bulwark of water which surrounds them in
the region. Behold, to move an army sufficient to assail them would be altogether too costly for the Gadiantonhem to consider worthy of what little they might recover from the victory.

24) Now, this is a principle of refuge that it will be well to consider.

The natural man seeks his own comfort above and beyond all things.

A refuge may contain that which is most desirable to the enemy, but it is made difficult and costly to obtain.

It is surrounded by a bulwark which is difficult to breach and it is altogether uncertain that the cost incurred in breaking such defenses could ever be recovered by the conquest of that which lies within.

25) Wherefore, if your refuge be made in flight, can you make it in a place of fastness?

It is most uncertain that you can.

For, if in your haste to escape calamity you pack up your tabernacle and your wagons and
you hasten out of the danger with all your goods, it is by no means probable that you shall not be in the close company of others also in flight of the same calamity as you.

Can you be certain that they are of like mind and of like spirit as you?

26) Behold, I say to you, you cannot.

Yea, all your neighbors may as easily be Gadiantonhem as not.

When you pitch up your tent and stack your provender, being free from the crisis, are you not very convenient to evil-minded natural men?

And how easy shall it be for some four or five of them to come and take from you all that you have preserved from the flood, or the gale, or the temblor, or the war?

27) And why is it that you are so easy to assail? It is because you fled in haste. Yea, you did not prepare a place ahead of time, but took your flight with all the rest.

Behold, you will never arrive at any refuge if your going is in flight.

28) And behold, I do foresee that there shall be men and women who shall extol unto you the virtue of storing up provender in your homes against the day of turmoil.

For they suppose, and so do you, that there shall be time for you to take all that you have and run to the mountains.

Yea, and they shall say it shall be well with you and all your goods when the time comes to flee from out of the world.

Yea, and they shall speak peace to your ears but their words shall not be peaceable.

29) Behold, woe shall be unto them who prepare not their way before them.

For you shall be filled with your provender and your goods.

Do you think it will be easier for you than for she who is with child in that day?

Nay, do not believe it!

When the time comes to flee, and you have taken no thought to prepare first the way before you, there shall be no time even to take up your couch.

You shall take only that which you can carry and your want shall be great.

And behold, all that you do have will become the prey of they who have nothing.

30) Wherefore, take note and study carefully the things that Hagoth and his people did when they took their journey into the wilderness.

Behold, they went not in flight and they made their journey unto a fast place.

They built up their city and had all things in common.

And behold, they built themselves up a nation upon the principles and promises given by the Lord in His Law.

31) And when the Gadiantonhem began to make their inroads into the land, they were quickly defeated, either by the Word of God, or by the strength of the arm of flesh.

But the cost to continue the conflict was too great to warrant their moving in great numbers against Mentinah or Corianton.

32) And again, when the great calamity came upon the Nephites, and so great a calamity was it that the more part of them perished because of their lack of preparation, behold, the Nemenhah did not perish.

Yea, and so great was the calamity that the more part of the northern portions of the Land Southward was broken up until there was not one place that remained the same.

Yet, in Mentinah there were but a few broken foundations and nothing more.

33) Behold, if it be the wisdom of God that you should receive these things, I pray that you dishonor not your God in taking them for your entertainment and not your instruction.

For, I feel in me that you shall receive them on the very eve of disaster.

34) Wherefore, take heed and learn from your ancestors.

Behold, we speak to you out of the dust and our voice is like unto your own, for we are your own kinsmen.

Wherefore, hearken unto the voice of the Lord and the message that He does give unto us for your good.

35) Build up a Zion. Build up a refuge.

And behold, I know that these records shall flow out of this same place wherein I do make them.

Wherefore, take note of the particulars of this place and use them as a model and an ensample.

36) For, I do not discern that your difficulties are any different than all the calamities that have befallen man since the world was.

Wherefore, your needs are precisely the same as mine.

And if the Nemenhah enjoy continual peace because of the refuge that we have built up unto the Lord, how shall you not feel of that same peace if you do likewise?

Yea, how shall the Lord stay His mighty hand and curse you if you do His will and obey His commandments?

37) Verily, He shall chasten and prepare His people,;

for they must feel of the Soul Cry.

But, He shall not curse you for your obedience.

Nay, He shall bless you abundantly, even as He has blessed us.

38) Wherefore, I say unto you, Your refuge shall not be measured by victuals alone.

Nay, even as our refuge is much more than wheat and barley, rice and all manner of food and drink, so also shall your refuge need to be more than all the food you can carry with you into the wilderness.

Behold, your refuge shall be a community and a way of living that makes it difficult for the natural man to take hold of your hearts.

39) Yea, if you find refuge at all, and that is not at all certain, for the Lord does not show me the end of your calamity, only the beginning, you shall have built it up beforethe crisis.

Yea, you shall have come out of Babylon and have built up Zion.

40) And it shall be a long journey for the wicked to come up unto your hearts.

And behold, you shall not esteem that which the world values, for the riches of eternity shall already be yours.

Wherefore, how shall you esteem houses and barns, horses and chariots, fine clothes and jewels, towers and great halls above that which you shall receive of the Lord from His storehouse?

41) Wherefore, if the very cost of assailing you shall be beyond any recovery in terms of the things of the world, how shall the Gadiantonhem esteem you worthy of their attentions?

Shall you not be bound about by mountainous bulwarks?

Shall you not be surrounded by a desert?

42) But behold, think not that you will be safe in your cottage within the walls of Kishkumen.

For, you are the prey of evil men and their spoil already.

43) Wherefore, get you out of the Land Southward and build up a straight place for the Lord.

Come out of Babylon and touch not her unclean things.

Put off the world and create Zion in your hearts;

lest there be none to greet the Lord when He comes.

The Second Book of Pa-Natan…The Laws of Mentinah Part II

Greetings all my relations,

Thank you all for studying here…we are learning from our Grandfathers;

and these Ancient Records called The Mentinah Archives.

How to…Walk in a Sacred Manor and Talk in a Sacred Manor…And How to walk upon “The Way” and receive “Wayaykihn” Personal Revelation, Visitation and Manifestations and Gifts of the Spirit…

The Book of Hebrews calls this coming up unto Mt. Zion and becoming a member of  The Church of the Firstborn, in Heaven and having your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life with the manifestations and gifts of The Holy Spirit.

Communicating with angels and just men and women made perfect, or your dead ancestors (the grandfathers), also a personal relationship with The Lord…The Creator…

Pa-Natan records how to make a covenant durable in Christ

The Prophetess and High Priestess Pa-Natan of Mentinah records;

The laws of Mentinah

And, if they make a covenant that they desire to be durable in Christ, then that covenant passes not away, but remains when earth and heaven pass.

And this, also, is according to the Holy Spirit of Promise.

 And does this seem strange?

It may well seem so and no great surprise.

For I must believe that many things done in our day might seem very strange to they who read of them in ages far removed from us.

But, I am constrained by the Spirit to include these things for the benefit of all they who might read here.

Wherefore, I do add them to this record.

 And behold;

Because Shimlei had but one son remaining living at the time

I was called to be clerk unto the high priest,

and he has always been away in the east and unavailable to write.

Wherefore, I do take up the function of clerk unto my family as well.

44) Now, because of durable covenants,which we deem very desirable, our laws have become consistent with that which is necessary to make them durable in Christ.

For, we know that we are sometimes strong of heart but frail in action.

Wherefore, to make natural laws that assist us in keeping the heavenly laws is a sound practice.

45) And the laws of Mentinah are founded upon that which our fathers taught us from the records and also they also arise out of the words of Christ spoken to our grandfathers.

And these are the laws of our people:

46) If men or women do any sort of violence against their neighbor, without provocation and not in their own defense, they shall have no place in the communities of the Nemenhah.

They are cast out from among the people.

47) And, if such violence causes the death of another, the malefactor is taken outside the city and is stoned until dead.

48) But, if the injury of another is caused by men or women, and there be provocation, the case is carefully considered by the Council and restitution is determined. And when the restitution is accomplished, let the parties forgive each other and live in peace.

49) And if the violence causes death, but is by provocation, the case is not of murder but is manslaughter and it is carefully considered by the Council and restitution is determined. And, if need be, the malefactor is sent away to another city to live in refuge.

And when the restitution is accomplished, let the parties forgive each other and live in peace.

But let the offender live in another city.

50) But behold, any man who violates a woman or a child, and proofs be provided, he is taken outside the wall and stoned to death.

And any man who does violence of any kind to any woman or child, is taken outside the wall and stoned to death.

For, man is the stronger vessel. Wherefore, let him take care in all his dealings with women and children.

51) And if men and women steal from any person, the theft is considered carefully before the Council and restitution is determined.

And if they will make no restitution, they are cast out.

But, if the malefactor returns that which has been stolen, and when the restitution is accomplished, let the parties forgive each other and live in peace.

52) And if men and women destroy any thing that is the stewardship of another, let them make restitution.

If they will make no restitution, let them be cast out.

And when the restitution is accomplished, let the parties forgive each other and live in peace.

53) And if men and women bind themselves together in a holy state of matrimony, let them be faithful one to another.

And if they be found in adultery, let them be cast out, and the children shall remain with the faithful party.

And if both mother and father be unfaithful, let the children be adopted unto the faithful.

For, it is not good for children to be raised up among adulterers.

54) Men and women shall not bind themselves for convenience.

For, this union is one of fornication and lust and shall undermine the community. Let men and women bind themselves with a durable covenant.

55) And any man who shall make fornication with a child, but with the consent of the child, shall be taken outside the wall and stoned to death.

And the child shall be taken aside and counseled diligently.

56) And any woman who shall make fornication with a child, but with the consent of the child, shall be taken outside the wall and stoned to death.

And the child shall be taken aside and counseled diligently.

57) And when children do fornicate with a man or a woman, or with another child, they shall be taken aside and counseled diligently, that they might understand the gravity of their misconduct.

But they are not punished, for they are children.

However, let also their parents be taken aside and judged.

For they have failed in their duty to teach their children.

Wherefore, it might needs be that the children ought to be raised by another.

But let this be decided by the Council, for there are mitigating circumstances in such
cases.

58) And the foreigner in the land shall be treated in all things as any citizen.

There is no distinction of laws concerning the sojourner.

But if the sojourner makes mischief without knowledge of the law, the case shall be judged by the Council and the sojourner is treated accordingly. But, in the case of murder or
violation of women and children, the case shall be judged the same as for any citizen.

59) Now, there has not been any case of a man violating a man, but such things might occur. When such is the case, and proofs are provided, the malefactor is taken outside the wall and stoned to death.

60) And behold, there have been some few cases of unnatural lust and of the fornication that comes of it, but this has been mainly among sojourners. Nevertheless, when men make fornication with one another, they are not cast out from among the communities of the Nemenhah but are counseled not to marry.

Likewise, when women make fornication with women, they are not cast out from among the communities, but they are counseled not to marry. And, no stewardship can be given them, but they are left to work for another to earn their bread.

And this is done in order to encourage them to leave the community of their own
accord. For, can a community be built or stand upon fornication?

61) Such men and women ought to be taken aside and counseled diligently to repent. For, their acting out might lead to greater injury that might take away their lives.

And such men and women are not numbered in the counting of the families of the community.

62) But let no violence come to them, for they may be able to repent.

And, if they repent, they may yet be numbered among the families.

63) And, if men and women have a stewardship that is able to make mischief upon the stewardship of another, such as with livestock, and their stewardship does make mischief upon the stewardship of another, be it livestock or durable goods, and they make no natural restitution, the matter is taken up by the Council and restitution is determined.

And, if that person dishonors the Council, the case is the same as willful injury.

Let that person be cast out and the stewardship of that person be given to the injured party. But if, by natural restitution, or by that determined by the Council,restitution is made, let that be the end of the matter.

For, what more can a person do than to restore that which has been lost.

And when the restitution is accomplished, let the parties forgive each other and live in peace.

64) But behold, if such injury becomes a pattern of negligence by a particular steward, the stewardship is not fitting and ought to be given unto another.

Let that person be trained in another stewardship before worse things take place.

And when the stewardship of men or women does cause the death of any person, and it be by accident established by proofs, there shall be no restitution.

For, the death is by accident. But, if the death does arise out of a pattern of negligence, then the matter is one of manslaughter and must be treated as such.

66) And when the stewardship of men or women does cause injury to any person, and it be by accident established by proofs, there shall be no restitution.

For the injury is by accident.

But, if the injury does arise out of a pattern of negligence, then the matter is one of unprovoked injury and must be treated as such.

67) Now, sometimes injury and death does occur out of the provoked action of another, although this has only taken place thrice in the history of Mentinah. When the injury or death occurs from provocation, the matter is carefully considered by the Council.

And the decision of the Council stands in such matters.

68) For, the injury may be to the individual, but the provocation is also injury to the entire community.

Wherefore, let the community take it up as a case of common good and determine the outcome.

In such cases, let the general assembly condone the action of the Council, or let the Council continue to consider the case. And when the restitution is accomplished, let the parties forgive each other and live in peace.

69) In all these laws, the Nemenhah have relied upon the Ten Commandments as our guides, and also the words of Christ.

For, we would have no lawlessness in our communities.

But we would also wish to be acceptable before Christ.

Wherefore, we make laws wherein restitution and forgiveness are possible.

70) And behold, we do hold to the Ten Commandments given unto our Father Moses.

And if there be any who is found guilty by proofs of injuring another because of their breach of the Ten Commandments, they are held accountable under our law and are treated accordingly.

71) But, if there be any who are found guilty by proofs of breach of the Ten Commandments, or any of the Commandments of God, but causes no injury, they are taken aside and diligently counseled to repent.

For if they repent, they are made better citizens and stewards.

Yea, Christ may make of their adversity a great strength.

72) Yea, we who call ourselves Nemenhah, do so because we honor and worship God.

And, though we take pride in the workmanship of our hands, we do not worship statues and images.

Nor do not we worship any work of our own hands.

Our temples and our synagogues, our lodges and our churches are beautifully
built, but they are not great and spacious, but only sufficient for our needs.

And the place where our councils meet is a small, round place, suitable for the members to sit comfortably and that is all.

73) We give no homage to the fields and the flocks and we assign no deity to govern there over Him who gave them.

We raise up no oblation to any but They who are real and personal.

74) God, who is the Father of our Spirits, we do worship.

And we raise up our prayers unto Him.

As also God, who is the Mother of our Spirits, we do worship.

As also God, who is the Creator and Atoner, we do worship.

And behold, we do worship Them by and through the Power of the Holy Ghost.

75) Now, These are real and personal beings, not being manifestations of the same being, but all are separate individuals.

Wherefore, They are not idols and there is no vanity in Them.

Neither is there vanity in us when we do raise up our voices and our hands to worship Them.

For, They are truly unified in all things,

76) We do greatly honor other heavenly beings.

Nevertheless, we do not worship them.

Yea, because of the truth upon which we are founded, we do entertain Angels and the Spirits of Just Men and Women made perfect.

And behold, we are constantly instructed by them.

But behold, our worship is of They unto whom we look for life, renewal and eventual perfection.

77) We are careful to give due honor unto our parents, according to our customs. For, we do recognize that without them we would have no place in the land.

And behold, if there be any who do dishonor their mother or their father, they are taken aside privily and counseled diligently to repent.

And, if they repent not, they are brought before the Council.

And, when their sin is made manifest before the Council, and they repent not, they are removed from all stewardship and sent away into a different city.

And behold, if they continue in their sin, dishonoring their parents still, even though they reside in a different place, then are they cast out from among the people.

78) For, to dishonor a parent is to dishonor the community, and what manner of man shall rely upon his neighbor as we do and yet dishonor his nearest neighbor?

Shall such a community that is based in dishonor prosper?

Not so long as the Lord has spoken against it.

For, against such a community shall the Lord also speak.

79) And the Nemenhah strive to deal honestly with all people.

Wherefore, if a man or woman is found in a lie, they are taken aside privily and counseled diligently to repent.

And, if they repent, the matter is closed.

Howbeit they repent not, they are also brought up before the Council.

80) And, if the lie has made injury upon another, they are judged according as has already been spoken.

But, if the lie has injured no one, they are counseled to repent again, yea, even publicly.

And, if they repent
not, all stewardship is taken from them. Nevertheless,they are not cast out, but must make their living by laboring for another.

81) And behold, because we have all things in common, to labor for another is very hard.

Wherefore, the liar is made to feel the weight of their sin.

And in this way, they are induced to leave the community, for their wish is to live differently than the Nemenhah.

82) Behold, the Nemenhah are also people of the Sabbath.

Yea, we do give six days in which to labor for our good, but one day we do dedicate unto labor for the Lord.

83) And behold, we are careful in our use of words of invective and we do always try to maintain constraint and dignity in our communication one with another.

We do not foreswear ourselves and we do not use foul and loathsome language.

84) We do not use the Lord’s name in vain, for we know the penalty that the Lord exacts upon they who foreswear themselves by oaths, inciting the very name of God to seal their oaths, but do so in vanity.

Yea, we do take upon ourselves the name of Christ, but we do it not in vain and we require it not of anyone.

For to do so is to bring guilt upon our heads that even the Lord cannot take away.

85) Now, among the Nemenhah, we have not been troubled with covetousness, because that we have all things in common.

And this is a great blessing unto us, for,to covet the belongings of ones neighbor in any of
the cities and villages of the Nemenhah is to covet their need or their want.

And all the needs and wants of the people are alike provided by the people.

Wherefore, wherein may anyone covet?

But behold, we teach against pride and against greed.

For, such things would prove the breakdown and the destruction of
all our blessings.

86) And we hold all sojourners to the same laws with which we do govern ourselves, after that we have taken them aside and instructed them in the laws of our land.

And after that the sojourner has learned of our laws and our ways;

if they do break the law, then they are dealt with the same as any Nemenhah.

Behold, we hold this to be equitable.

87) Now, in the experience of our people, because we have founded ourselves upon these simple precepts, we find that we do not need a larger body of law.

For, when there are complaints or offenses of lesser nature, we do insist that the parties settle the matter between themselves privily.

And this is wisdom.

For, every matter of lesser import ought to be settled in this manner, to preserve peace between neighbors.

88) And behold, needing no greater body of law;

we find no need for bodies of lawyers and legalists either.

Wherefore, we prevent great evil in the land.

For, as is too evident in the Land Southward where their laws enlarge to the point of being more populous than the people, a great body of men to interpret so great a body of law is naturally necessitated.

With such comes also the need for a hierarchy of judges to judge the people, for every act does become in one way or another against so great a volume of law.

89) And, because these men do labor all the day long in arguing the law, they do not labor for the maintenance of the people nor of the community.

Wherefore, they must earn a wage and buy with money that which they need from they who actually produce.

This also necessitates the use of money and the storing up of much provision to be sold for money.

90) And behold, in this there is great iniquity and great danger to the community.

For behold, great stores of stuff of value brings about the building of riches and of pride.

And it is easy to become covetous of the few who have the stewardship of so much.

And it is easy to use such stores of stuff to buy up lawyers and judges to one’s own purposes.

Yea, and this is the downfall of all and the eventual ruin of Zion.

91) Wherefore, because we do constrain our body of law to that which the Lord has given, we have no need of great bodies of lawyers and judges, a great blessing to us.

92) And also, we do teach and diligently instruct our children in all of our laws in order that they might be competent to make settlement of their small concerns one with another and cause no greater matter to come before the Councils.

93) Behold, this is our law, our custom and our way.

The Second Book of Pa Natan Part I

Greetings all my relations,
On this great day we will begin to study Volume IV of The Mentinah Archives.

These are some words from the prophetess Pa-Natan concerning Zion;

 Now, we see that it does not require a great people to create a refuge, but it does require that the people have hearts to live a celestial law.

Yea, the people prospered so quickly because they were determined to create Zion in their hearts.

Then, when they desired to strengthen the stakes of Zion;

Verily, the Lord did prosper them.
 All you who embark upon this same design, having a desire in your hearts to expand and strengthen the stakes of Zion, remember that the great success of the Nemenhah depended upon that covenant into which all entered, who would have place among the people, that made of them all one heart and one mind.

Yea, we have all things in common and we work diligently to provide for our neighbors.

And behold, it is according to our custom that, in working to provide for our brothers and sisters, all things are added unto us, for we are all relations.

The Second Book of Pa Natan
The Daughter of Shimlei

Adoption by ceremony explained and those adopted by Shimlei listed.

Laws of governance were explained.

Pa Natan told about preparing a refuge, both physical and spiritual.

Nin-Shepa was shown and spoke prophetically of the decline of the Nemenhah, of the futurity of generations of peoples, of the present day, of the Remnant of Israel who would bring again Zion to the land before Christ came again.

Pa Shimuel was instrumental in developing the use of cylinders for use with paper and ink for printing parts of the archives for use when one was traveling.

Pa Sibal set up libraries and places of learning.

She wrote genealogies of the Nemenhah high priests.

Pa Natan became high priest.

She told about the peace and brotherhood of all the Nemenhah peoples across the land.

Chapter One

1) Now I, Pa Natan, do continue to make a record of the Nemenhah.

But, more specifically,

I do make a record of the Nemenhah of Mentinah and the cities round about this part of the land.

For behold, the Nemenhah have become very numerous.

Yea, they do cover the face of the Land Northward, even from the West Sea unto the East Sea, from the icy lakes of the North down to the Land of Desolation and there are settlements in all of these regions.

2) But, before I continue with the history of my own people, there is somewhat that the Spirit constrains me ought to be added to this record for the benefit of our descendents who might read them.

For, I believe that the Lord will restore unto them certain, if not all of the ways of my people, that they might undertake to bring again Zion in this land.

3) And behold, I have somewhat more to say about my father, Shimlei. For, he was a great man and a man of great charity.

Wherefore, when it came to his attention that when the Seven Companions of the
Children of Sanhempet returned with the missionaries they did request that they be adopted, not merely by word but by ceremony, into the family of Sanhempet, and that this was never accomplished in them during their days, he did undertake to formally adopt all the children of the Seven Companions whom it was appropriate to make his own flesh and blood, yea, and all their children as well.

4) Wherefore, because that his family became very large suddenly, the people of Mentinah asked the true children of his body to take to them new names whereby they might make distinction between the adopted children and the true children of Shimlei.

5) Now, this thing did at first cause my father to mourn, for, he wanted no distinction to come between his children.

But behold, his own children were already administrators of much that was asked of by the people and it was necessary to make some token of distinction between his children.

6) Wherefore, the people of the city did call Pa Mantim, Pac Manti.

And unto my sister Pa Shimua they did give the name Pac Shimuel.

And unto Sibal El, my sister, they did give the name, Pa Sibal.

Unto my brother Shigoeth, who was clerk to many high priests,they did give the name Shi Muel, and unto my brother Shi Emnet, who became an advocate for the people of Mentinah to the people of Corianton, they gave the name, Shi Menti.

Unto Ilmin, my brother, they gave the name, Alma Im.

And the only one of the true children of Shimlei unto whom the people did not give a new name was Pawna Mentinah, for she had no calling pertinent to the administrative affairs of the city.

7) And behold, each of these names did have somewhat to do with that which the people had called upon them to do.

Wherefore, the distinction was not so much to set them apart from all those whom my father had adopted, but rather it was to set them apart because of their work and their calling.

8) And seeing that this did give my father some pain, his adopted children also took new names and in this way they did satisfy my father.

Yea, we did all take new names when we became children of Shimlei.

9) Now behold, I am descended from Phezah, the same who was one of the lesser judges of the City of Josh, and one of the Seven Companions of Sanhagot.

But behold;

When Shimlei did adopt all of the descendents of the Seven Companions, I did also become his daughter, although I had been raised up informally as such from the days when Shimlei took my mother to wife after the death of the prophetess.

10) And I married Ishimhah, a man of the Nemenhah of Mentinah whose father’s name was Ishim, the same Ishim who was also called to be high priest of Mentinah.
Ishim who was also called to be high priest of Mentinah.

And when my husband died, Ishim, my father in-law did take me in and care for me.

11) And when formal adoption is made, it is done with an holy ceremony and with an ordinance and a covenant.

And this is the nature of the ceremony and the ordinance of adoption:

12) Behold, the man or woman who does make an adoption of a man or a woman, they do invite them to become part of their family as a son or a daughter.

And the individual is placed in the center of the Council Lodge with all the family of the one making the adoption gathered in and seated round about the one to be adopted.

13) And the one making the adoption stands and gives praise unto the mother of the one to be adopted.

And when this is done, the one making the adoption raises sacred smoke in the censor to the sacred directions, as described by Shi-Tugohah, the historian and lawgiver.

14) Now, it has also become the custom of the people to make a Sacred Pipe and this does represent not only the censor of incense used in the Temple, but also many aspects of that which the ordinances of the High Place represent.

Behold, the bowl of the Pipe represents the censor of incense and the shape of it
represents the upraised hand and certain of the tokens spoken of in the Temple.

15) And this sacred smoke is blown over the body of the one to be adopted and is called, Sacred Breath.

And when this has been done, the one making the adoption declares to all present that the person to be adopted is thereafter kin of his kin and flesh of his flesh.

16) Then the one making the adoption pronounces a new name upon the one to be adopted and the adopted one is known to all people by that name thereafter.

And the one adopted agrees to stand in the councils of that family thereafter as a child of the one making the adoption.

17) Wherefore, Shimlei gave me to be known as Pa Natan and it is by that name that I shall be known to the end of my life and hereafter.

18) And these are the names of all they whom Shimlei adopted:

19) For Stephat married one of the daughters of the children of Hagoth whose name was Kimtaneth, and they had sons and daughters.

And the names of their sons were Stephan-neth and Mariad, Kened and Lorith.

And the names of their daughters were Pa-Anath, Pa-Imanet and Pa-Imketh.

20) And Stephan-neth married Pa-Noeth, the daughter of Shigath, and they had sons and daughters.

And the sons of Pa-Noeth were Shigat-han and Shinath.

And the daughters of Pa-noeth were Pa-Himet, Pa-Shimei and Pac Hori.

And these are the children of Stephan-neth and Pa-Noeth whom Shimlei adopted.

21) And Mariad married Toriet, the daughter of Shi-Torin who was a descendent of Shi-Tugohah, and they had sons and daughters. And the sons of Torietwere Men-neteh, Torin, and Shi-Mored.

And the daughters of Toriet were Pa-Niat and Hem-pah-neth.

And these are the children of Toriet whom Shimlei adopted.

22) And Kened married Pa-Nasat, a descendent of Hementah who was one of the Hero Twins who made their journey with our father Hagoth, and they had sons.

And the sons of Pa-Nasat were Hementah and Cumini.

And these are the children of Pa-Nasat whom Shimlei adopted.

23) And Lorith married Pac Manti, the daughter of Shimlei and they had sons and daughters.

And behold, they needed no adoption but are listed among the natural children of Shimlei because of Pac Manti.

24) And Pa-Anath, Pa-Imanet and Pa-Imketh married sons of the Nemenhah.

Wherefore, their children have become Nemenhah and need no adoption.

25) And behold, Nepham, the companion in arms of Stephat, did also marry a Nemenhah woman whose people came from the city of Corianton, whose name was Isabet, and they had sons and daughters.

And the sons of Isabet were Alma and Corianthem. And the daughters of Isabet were Pac Isa, Pa-Cushem and Pa-Deborah.

26) And Alma married Pac-Shimuel and their children became the natural children of Shimlei.

And Corianthem also married Pa-Sibal and their children became the natural children of Shimlei.

27) And behold, Pac Isa, Pa-Cushem and Pa-Deborah married Nemenhah and their children have become Nemenhah.

28) Now, Hemset returned unto the Land Southward and did not leave any posterity in the lands of the Nemenhah. And so also did Korim.

29) But Joram married Himni-Ehet, a descendent of Hagoth and they had sons and daughters.

And the sons of Himni-Ehet were Hemnot, Horet, and Omri. And the daughters of Himni-Ehet were Ris and Pa-Minnit.

30) And Hemnot traveled to Corianton and made that city his home.

Wherefore, he was adopted into the family of Corianton.

And his brother Horet traveled into the north to the city of Waylumot and was adopted into the family of Kin-Lumot, a Nemenhah of that city. Wherefore, being adopted into families of the Nemenhah of other cities, Shimlei did not adopt them.

31) But behold, Kim-Lumot was also a descendent of Hagoth, wherefore Shimlei gained a cousin by that adoption.

32) And of the brothers, Hemnet, Horet and Omri, the youngest traveled to the West Sea and went up into a ship and traveled into the West. And it is recordedthat they joined with the family of Hagothah.

Wherefore, Shimlei did not adopt them.

33) Ris and Pa-Minnit, were the daughters of Himni-Ehet and they did also marry among the Nemenhah and their children were numbered among the families of the Nemenhah.

34) Now, Zeezret also traveled into the North and broke through the ice while crossing a great river.

Wherefore, he died and left no descendents.

But behold, Shimlei did duly adopt him, that his name may be remembered among the Nemenhah forever.

35) And Phezah, my own grandfather, married Pa-Megednah, a notable woman of the City of Mentinah and a Nemenhah of great renown.

The same is my grandmother.

And they had but one child who was my mother.

And her name is Shebeth-Nah.

36) And behold, Shebeth-Nah married Morinhah, of the City of Mentinah, and they had but one child and that child am I.

But behold, Morinhah died and left my mother a widow.

And, when Shimlei was also left a widower, he did marry my mother.

And Shimlei did adopt me into his own house.

Yea, both I and my mother did he adopt.

And behold, though I do honor my mother and my father, I am also honored to be so
set apart by so great a man.

As is also my mother.

37) Wherefore is my mother called both the wife and daughter of Shimlei and the lady of the House of Shimlei, though she bound herself by a covenant unto her husband, Morinhah, and kept her own house also.

38) Yea, and Shimlei also remained bound unto his own wife, who was dead.

Nevertheless, Shebeth-Nah became lady of the house according to that which is acceptable in our custom.

39) For, we bind ourselves with a covenant one with another, and according to that sealing which comes from the Holy Spirit of Promise, which is the Holy Ghost, our covenant becomes Christ’s and, therefore, it is durable.

40) Notwithstanding, we do recognize that it is not good for men and women to be alone.

Wherefore, when a man or a woman is widowed, whether there be children or no, we have made modification of the Levirah Law and our people do remarry.

And behold, if they have previously bound themselves with a covenant that they wish to remain when heaven and earth pass away, the second marriage is according to the Levirah and is not durable.

41) And when all of these people were adopted into the house of Shimlei, they did also give a thank offering unto the lady of the house with praise and honor.

And behold, all this is according to the custom of the people, that when men and women are adopted into a new house, they might do so with ceremony and a covenant that they desire to be durable in Christ, then that covenant passes not away, but remains when earth and heaven pass.

And this, also, is according to the Holy Spirit of Promise.

42) And does this seem strange?

It may well seem so and no great surprise.

For I must believe that many things done in our day might seem very strange to they who read of them in ages far removed from us.

But, I am constrained by the Spirit to include these things for the benefit of all they who might read here.

Wherefore, I do add them to this record.

43) And behold, because Shimlei had but one son remaining living at the time I was called to be clerk unto the high priest, and he has always been away in the east and unavailable to write.

Wherefore, I do take up the function of clerk unto my family as well.

44) Now, because of durable covenants,which we deem very desirable, our laws have become consistent with that which is necessary to make them durable in Christ.

For, we know that we are sometimes strong of heart but frail in action.

Wherefore, to make natural laws that assist us in keeping the heavenly laws is a sound practice.

45) And the laws of Mentinah are founded upon that which our fathers taught us from the records and also they also arise out of the words of Christ spoken to our grandfathers.

And these are the laws of our people:

The Mission of The Children of Sahnempet

Greetings all my relations,

It is with great honor that we will be concluding;

Volume 3 of the Mintenah Archives;

We have been studying The First Book of Pa-Natan.

She discovers that the records are missing information.

She recounts the stories and ceremonies of the heroes…told during the winter months…in particular the mission of the children of Sahnempet to the land southward to warn them to prepare for the Lord’s Coming…

Continuing with; The mission of the children of Sahnempet

Chapter Eight

1) And the band traveled far and they did work to get their provender in every city they met upon the way.

And they did preach the Gospel of Jesus unto all the people.

And behold, they never again found people so hardened as they had theretofore, and the Lord blessed them in their jouney.

2) But behold, ere they had traveled the half of the Land Southward in their progress toward their own country, and they were on the road between the City of Moroni and the City of Moronihah, a great tumult shook the land, insomuch that none could hold their footing.

And behold, they did all fall to the ground.

Yea, they did embrace the ground and lift up their prayers for their salvation unto the Lord.

3) And they could see afar off that the great City of Moroni was swallowed by the sea, and the sea rose up in many places and cut off the way before them.

Yea, and in the stead of land before them, there formed many seas, both great and small, and many lakes, and the place where they had fallen down upon the ground became
an island of the sea.

4) And behold, ere they could begin again their journey, the sky blackened and the air thickened, and they heard as the sound of continuous thunderings from the West.

Yea, before the first day of the calamity had ended, none could see even the hand held up in front of their eyes and the air was thick with vapor.

And they all feared for their lives, but, the children of Sahnempet led them in mighty prayer and the Lord preserved them.

And thus they stood still for the space of three days.

5) And, when the three days were come to an end, they did break the last of their bread together and blessed it unto the Lord.

And they did pour out the last of their wine together and blessed it unto the Lord, for, thus did the Spirit whisper to them that they ought to do.

And behold, they did share this last meal one with another, believing that, perhaps, they would perish upon this tiny island.

6) But, they did hear the voice of the Lord descending out of heaven, and even they did see Him afar off, and they were comforted and continued in prayer and supplication before the Lord.

And behold, after they had passed one day in prayer and supplication, a small body of men hailed them from the shore afar off to the west.

And they beheld that the waters had receded somewhat, insofar that they were all able to walk to the other shore.

7) And the men that greeted them told them that the Lord commanded that all should hastily be gathered in unto the Temple in the Land Bountiful, which lay to the west of where they stood, and that they should hasten even there to meet the Lord and His servants.

8) But behold, the children knew that the distance was far, even many days or even weeks through the wilderness and they could not reach the place on foot.

Wherefore, they sought the guidance of the Spirit in the thing.

9) Wherefore behold, a strange and a mighty miracle took place unto the children of Sahnempet and unto all them that did follow them.

Behold, the Spirit came upon them mightily as they prayed, and they were surrounded about by Angels.

And behold, they were carried as if upon the wind even unto a place that was near unto the
City of Bountiful.

10) And they did walk into the city to the place round about the Temple, and behold, there was a great multitude gathered there all about the Temple.

And, as they approached, behold, they saw the Lord descending upon the steps of the Temple.

And they cast themselves upon the ground as did all the people and rejoiced before their God.

11) Now therefore, we do see that the children of Sahnempet and their companions were with the Lord when He did make His visitation to the people who had survived the great calamities that had befallen the Land Southward.

And behold, they were the only people of all the people who inhabited the more easterly regions of the Land Southward who survived the great destruction.

And they were ministered unto by the Lord and by Angels;

And also by the Twelve whom the Lord had called.

12) Now, the account of His visit to the Land Southward is written in another place, but we do know of it of a surety because of the testimony of the children of Sahnempet and of all that followed them back into the Land Northward. But behold, we do also know of it because of the little book that was carried back even unto Ougou with the party.

For, Timothy, one of the Twelve whom Jesus chose, did also travel with them.

And this is all recorded in another place.

13) And it was as Jesus said unto Ougou, that his brethren were safe and that they were upon the road traveling unto their home, even at the moment that Jesus did make His visitation unto the Nemenhah of Mentinah.

And all this is also recorded in another place.

14) Sufficeth to say that the children of Sahnempet did fulfill the mission upon which the Lord had sent them.

Yea, they did go even unto the most wicked of the cities of the Land Southward and they did testify against them.

And all that they did testify would befall those wicked cities did verily come to pass.

Of all this we have ample proof and witness in the writings of our people.

Wherefore, I, Pa Natan;

Do make an end of my abridgement of the missions of the Children of Sahnempet.

Preamble to The Nemenhah Constitution 2002

Good morning all my relations,

We walk in a sacred manor, and we talk in a sacred manor…

Nemenhah Declaration of Existence as an Indigenous People 2010 Nemenhah Declaration of Existence as an Indigenous People

Preamble

Written by:
Eapalekthiloom Hemeneot Toohyeloakekt
Chief Phillip ‘Cloudpiler’ Landis
Elected Principle/Medicine Chief of the
Nemenhah Band and Native American Traditional Organization
President and CEO of the Oklevueha NAC of Sanpete

We, Nemenhah, honor and applaud the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP), adopted in the United Nations General Assembly by General Assembly Resolution 61/295 on 13 September 2007, and the decades of work that have gone into its final acceptance in International Law.

Indeed, although there may be some who may posit that, as merely
a declaration, UNDRIP is not binding upon the States, we disagree. Because the General
Assembly associated and connected their declaration with the United Nations Charter,
International Human Rights Law, and the Geneva Convention, it constitutes a clarification of already existing International Law.

The right of self determination plays so important a role in UNDRIP that one must consider it one of its very fundamental principles.

Self determination is a right that is generally reserved for “persons of international law,” “states” and “nations,” and therefore, UNDRIP must be comprehended as intending the term “indigenous people” to also designate a person of international law.

We, as a People, have reviewed the Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States, 1933, in order to feel justified in declaring ourselves an Indigenous People under UNDRIP. The Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States of 1933
provides certain qualifications which the United Nations has utilized since that time in
determining the existence of a “state.”

They are: “The state as a person of international law should possess the following qualifications: (a) apermanent population; (b) a defined territory; (c)a government; and (d) capacity to enter into relations with the other states.”

Many scholars have contended that it was the intent of the Colonizing Nations to completely extinguish the First Cultures they encountered when they arrived in the Americas, along with their ancient culture and way of life, or, at the very least, to assimilate
them.

This is especially true with regard to the purely Nomadic Peoples they encountered.
Evidence of this intent is found in the persistent body of Indian Law of the United States and Canada, pertaining to the “civilization of the Indian.”

Even today, the “Blood Quanta Doctrine” promulgated and sustained by the U.S.
Department of Interior’s Bureau of Indian Affairs, remains as a living indictment
of that intent.

Although, because of the complete conquest of North, Central and South America by European colonial powers, and although in many places the preservation of our ancient culture, language and identity was punishable by forced relocation of whole populations in foreign regions, and by corporal and even capital punishment in many actual experiences, nevertheless, certain of our progenitors and their descendents have labored against such persecution to preserve our heritage, and to restore it to us in this modern era.

We recognize certain of these Holy People as preservers and restorers of our culture
and founders of our Indigenous People .

One of them was Hinmot Tooyelakekt (Young Chief Joseph), renowned Chief of the Wellamotkin Band of the Sehaptin-Speaking People of the Wallowa, Wallula and Wanapum country, and Head and Spiritual Father to all those “Combatant Nez Perces” who sustained and supported him in his leadership during the Nez Perce War with the United States of America.

Every person whose blood lineage springs from out of the remnants who survived the Nez Perce War, be that relationship ever so remote, revere and recognize Chief Joseph as their
Spiritual Father. His spirit lives within the Nemenhah and we consider ourselves a remnant of his own body.

Pawna Tawny (Grandmother of Chief Phillip ‘Cloudpiler’ Landis), whom the US Nez Perce Census of 1900 documented as an Indigenous Person, was a relation of this same Chief Joseph, as were all the survivors, and children of survivors, of the war period, and she was made a granddaughter of Chief Joseph by the ancient tradition of “Making Family.”

It was through this ancient cultural practice that Chief Joseph, right up to the time of his death, continued the work of the restoration and unification of the shattered remnants of his people by the preservation of the doctrine and ceremonial practice which we know as “Spiritual Adoption.

”With the election of, Phillip “Cloudpiler” Landis, grandson of Pawna Tawny, the restored Nemenhah People continue Chief Hinmot Tooyelakekt’s instructive actions in this latterday.

By this Bona Fide Native American Ceremonial Practice, a permanent population of Nemenhah has been re-established, and will continue to grow, with in the traditional territories of the Ancient Nemenhah, as well as in other countries.

The leadership of the Wellamotkin Band, which the US Government erroneously deemed the “Wallowa Band,” and “Joseph Band,” was communicated to Hinmot Tooyelakekt when Wellamotkin, his father, transferred the Sacred Bundle to him.

Wellamotkin had also received the Sacred Bundle from his ancestors in a sacred manner, and so the custom continues as far back as the memory of the Nemenhah can supply.

Through the legacy transmitted to Pawna Tawny, the Principle of the Medicine Bundle has been restored to the People.

We declare this tradition as one of the “institutions” cited in UNDRIP that must be guaranteed by the UN Member States.

It is by and through it that the Nemenhah culture has been preserved and it is
through it that it is continuing to be restored in the modern era.

Utilizing only the definition provided by the Montevideo Convention, we, the Nemenhah,
declare that we are a Nomadic Indigenous People, comprised of remnants of the Ancient Nemenhah, whose citizens happily and peacefully co-inhabited parts of North, Central and South America with other Indigenous Peoples who dwelt in these traditional lands and territories prior to the European Conquest.

Notwithstanding attempts by a conquering nation to extinguish us from off
the face of the earth, we continue to have a permanent population.

Smohola, whose legacy as the “Hunchback Prophet” of the Wanapum People, was a relation and Mentor

of the a forementioned Chief Hinmot Tooyelakekt, as well as many others, including Toohoohoolzote and Wovoka.

We revere Smohola as another of our Founding Fathers.

He traveled down to the ancestral fathers in the Yucatan, and spent four years with them reaffirming the ancient ways and customs.

Smohola became aware of records which recount the history of the Nemenhah and how
they originated in the region of Central America associated with the Izapa Culture, a portion of which migrated into North America during what archeologists now call the Late Pre-Classic Period of Mayan History, and from their outposts in

North America they continued into the Pacific Islands and into Asia.

Sacred Records of this migration and colonization have been recovered and translated which describe and define the ancient territory of the Nemenhah.

We believe these Sacred Records to be authentic and the translations to be to be adequate to their purpose.

Smohola, began a restoration of the Nemenhah People;

Through the re-introduction of the Seven Drums and Seven Lodges Ceremonies, culminating in the emergence of the Ghost Dance, which threatened to unite all the Native American Peoples of North America.

The United States Government declared war against this Native American Cultural Restoration beginning with the infamous massacre at Wounded Knee Creek, and had nearly extinguished it by the beginning of the twentieth century.

Nevertheless, the records were safely hidden and the Nemenhah Culture

was not completely extinguished.

The Nemenhah national continuity existed in the form of;

The Anasazi Culture and the Mississippi Woodland Culture;

And although the great cities of these two cultures collapsed just prior to the appearance of Europeans in North America, nevertheless, the culture carried on in isolated regions in the Northwest and Midwest and has been preserved
to the present era.
Through our
