Part 3 The Book of Shi Honayah Akektim;Now Mor Honayah, even that same man who was known unto the Nephites as Moroni did live and serve the Lord all the days of his life.

Greetings all my relations,

It is a great honor to meet with you again. Here at zionspath we are studying and praying about the Sacred Records of The Nemenhah…

Volume 5:

Chapter Three

1) Now Mor Honayah, even that same man who was known unto the Nephites as Moroni did live and serve the Lord all the days of his life.

And he lived one hundred and forty two years and he did give up the ghost.

2) And in his stewardship he did see the reuniting of the Nemenhah of the Mountains.

For behold, the Great War had caused the Nemenhah cities to become distant and dividing in some things.

Wherefore, the Nemenhah were not of one heart and one mind in all things and, although they did provide for their own people in their own regions, they had ceased for a time to interact as a unified nation of communities.

This spirit was restored to the Nemenhah because of the ministry of Mor Honayah.

3) For the cities did begin to send once again their representatives unto Elak Kowat to the Great Councils.

And they did also begin to organize again into the General Councils.

Wherefore, groups of cities did meet in councils as Nemenhah and not merely for their own communities.

4) And following the example set by Mor Honayah, many cities did also begin to send out their own Traveling Councils of Peli to visit other cities.

Now, this is the thing that did begin to most unify the cities one to another.

For, the people began to know each other by this mobilizing of their young men and
women and it became a great blessing unto the people.

5) Now, also it must be written and recorded here that, because of the teachings of Mor Honayah and because of the message that he sent by his own voice and also by the voice of the traveling Peli, the cities did undertake to construct their own temples.

And the ordinances of the High Place were spread to all the cities and many of the settlements of the Nemenhah of the Mountains.

6) One of the purposes of the Traveling Council of Peli was to instruct the people in the building of the Lodges and also to assist them in setting up and performing the ordinances.

Yea, the young people did go forth and teach the Nemenhah not only principles of the High Place but also in the actual performing of the ceremonies.

7) And being so united in purpose, and also having their attention brought back unto the principles of salvation, the people and the councils of the cities and the settlements did also begin to step out once again in the performance of their civic duties.

Yea, they did become more effective in their own councils and also they did become more active in the councils of the nation as a whole.

8) And thus we see how the great captain of the Nephite armies was instrumental in bringing into balance all that had been disturbed because of the war and the threat of war.

9) In this did Mor Honayah teach a vital message of healing unto all the people.

For, did not the people pass from a condition of war even unto a condition of peace?

And did they not pass from a condition of doubt and despair unto a condition of confidence and of hope?

And, whereas the disunity that arose out of the great preparations for war did threaten to undue the nation, the unity that arose out of the building up of the High Places in all the land did promise to edify the nation.

Behold, this is healing.

Yea, it is the healing of a nation, and it is in this healing that all people may emerge from one state into another.

Part 2 The Book of Shi Honayah Akektim; The Son of Mor Honayah (Moroni); The Traveling Council of Peli.

Greeting all my relations,

It is a good day!  And it is very nice to meet with all of you again.

This is a very sacred walk …

It is a sacred path…

It is the Ancient Path established by our First Parents Adam and Eve when they built Zion..  called ” The Thanksgiving Way” Temple Teachings…

The Four Great Covenants and having All Things in Common…

 

ZION … Is Built upon The Four Great Covenants of the High Place.

In Vol. 5 we learn that this same pattern was taught by Jesus Christ to Ougou in 33A.D.

And also that Timothy one of The Three Nephite Translated Beings taught these same patterns and temple teachings to Shi Honayah the son of Mor Honayah (Moroni)…

and Mor Honayah formed a Traveling Priesthood Council to re-juvenate  the gospel in the minds of the Nemenhah people…—————————————————————————————-cj note if you would like to connect and join the ministry and the people link here www.info@nemenhah.org

This is a message from Chief Wellamotkin that reflects the Nemenhah message today!

Nemenhah Ministry is filled with prayer in so many various forms and faiths and through it all is the pervasive spirit of hope and emergence, the ability to lift up the hands that hang down and wield an influence to affect change in one’s world both personal and at large.

To emerge from out of a state of sadness, sorrow, fear and illness, into a state of joy, peace, holiness and health is the objective of Nemenhah Religion throughout our Five-Fold Mission.
Thank you for your attention and walk sacred,

This Temple Knowledge is being restored through The Nemenhah Today!

We are reading from;

Vol. 5

The Book of Shi Honayah Akektim

The Son of Mor Honayah (Moroni)

Chapter Two

1) And Mor Honayah did travel from city to city, and from settlement to settlement, in all the regions of the Nemenhah of the Mountains, and even he did travel out to the West Sea, and he did preach this message unto all the people.

2) And the people did esteem his message of great worth.

For, it did cause them to remember the purpose of the gospel in their lives – that it should not become a means whereby men and women are enslaved, but that they might receive of it that through which the Lord does liberate His children.

3) Now, when he undertook to travel away from his own city, he did so in the warm months, for the roads were not always safe to travel at other times.

And he did take with him trusty men, men whom he had known for many years.

And some of these men were among those who had fought beside him in the Nephite war.

Yea, they went in a body of twelve and they called themselves the Traveling Council of Peli.

And they did all things in unity and they had all things in common.

4) And now and then, they divided themselves so that they might go and visit many cities and settlements at once.

And when they did this, they did divide into threes, and they went three by three.

But when they entered into any city, they did greet the people in the name of the Lord and in the name of the Traveling Council of Peli.

And thus they became known unto all the people in the region.

5) And when they were accepted by the council of a certain community, they did offer ceremony and oblation in the presence of all the people.

They did offer up sacred smoke after the manner and pattern of Mor Honayah, and they did lead out in the Purification of the Ammonihah.

Yea, they did make a sacred suffering with all the people who would celebrate this sacrifice with them.

6) In many of the places whereunto they did visit during their travels, they found no reason to make any regulation, or in other words, when they met in council with the men and women of that city, they saw nothing about which they might make any suggestion, and they celebrated with the people in the Spirit.

Nevertheless, they did always preach the message that Mor Honayah had taught them and this did unite them with all the people.

7) Now, they did not go unto the people in order that they might convince them of one viewpoint over another.

They went because they were driven by the Spirit.

And it was not in order that they might combat Tucantor and his rebellion, for his teachings did not travel much outside of Mentinah at that time.

But they did travel unto all the places in the mountains all the way unto the West Sea, and even they did teach some who came over from among the Nemenhah of the Islands, in order that the cities might be more united and that greater contact might be established between them.

Yea, they desired that the people might be more unified in their understanding of the gospel and unto this end did they travel from city to city.

8) And they were not disappointed in their desire. For there had not been much done along this line for many generations.

Now, do not think that the people had not enjoyed communion with other cities, but their lives were so much tied to their own city and their own stewardship that they had little opportunity to travel about and visit other cities and other settlements except to transport goods.

9) Wherefore the traveling council gave the people of the scattered cities of the Nemenhah an opportunity to hear and to honor teachers from other places.

And this did cause them to esteem the Nemenhah as one nation and one people.

10) And the traveling council did prove to the people that they could live in diverse places

upon the land and yet have security and unity because of their unity in the covenants

and commitments they had all made to live the way the Lord had taught them.

Indeed, because of the traveling Peli, they did not feel isolated one from another.

11) And also when the people saw that the traveling Peli taught the oblations, sacraments

and ordinances that were taught by the Lord and by Timothy and his brethren,

they were the more unified in their teachings,
even so much so that they did also take up their concentration

upon the four great covenants of the High Place.

Yea, and in every place where the traveling Peli sojourned, they did assist the people in building
the High Place and in setting up the performance of the ordinances there.

12) The traveling Peli became renowned in all the land because of their knowledge and because of the great spirit with which they did teach the discourse that Mor Honayah had taught them.

And whenever they were gathered in any one place, they did observe to teach in unison,

never differing in their discourse.

Yea, they did pray together, and they did fast together.

They did observe the Purification of the Ammonihah together and they did participate

together in the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper.

They were a body and a band of perfect unity and they had all things in common.

13) And it was for this cause that Mor Honayah did make his journey unto the various cities of the Nemenhah.

For he esteemed it the best work that he could do.

And what other work could there be of greater import than that we wear out our lives

in the service of the Lord and of His children?

This, verily, is the thing that Mor Honayah taught and his life became an example unto us all.

14) And they who went with Mor Honayah, or also they who were sent by him unto the cities, did this walking service because of the great love they had for their Lord and also for their brothers and sisters of the Nemenhah.

They did not do it because of the esteem of the people.

For, who knew them before that they had visited their cities?

Nay, they set out because they loved their God and the Spirit had testified mightily to them of the rightness of the mission.

And also they set out because they loved the Nemenhah and desired not that they should dwindle in unbelief because of the whisperings and conspiring of evil or misinformed men

15) And this took place throughout the stewardship of Mor Honayah and it became a great work. For the Nemenhah unified once again into a great nation under the influence of this great Peli and high priest.

And to write all of his doings and all of his works would fill up many volumes, wherefore, he did not write much of his own doings in his own record.

And also he felt not to praise himself for his own works.

Such was his humility.

16) Nevertheless, Mor Honayah is known throughout the land as one of the greatest prophets of the Nemenhah and it is for this reason that one may see his mark in many places written into the stones. Yea, he became a hero unto the people and most especially unto the young men who found in the traveling councils and the walking service a mission for themselves and a means whereby they might serve the nation as a whole and not only their own community.

Part 1 The Book of Shi Honayah Akektim; Who was the Son of Mor Honayah (Moroni); Who was the Son of Mormon, Abt 513 A.D.

Greetings all my relations,

Thank you for meeting here with us at zionspath, We are learning the sacred walk and the sacred talk of The Nemenhah…And The High Place…

The High Place or Temple Instructions  teach us these Four Sacred Ordinances…

We are studying from the Sacred Archives pretty much one chapter at a time…

This month marks the end  of our study of  Vol. 4

I hope that all of you are growing in light as much as I am…

We are moving along in our study of The Sacred Records of The Nemenhah.

It is with great enthusiasm that we begin our study of:

Volume 5:

The Book of Shi Honayah Akektim
The son of Mor Honayah

Shi Honayah Akektim wrote the peaceable words that Mor Honayah

preached as he and others traveled among the Nemenhah.

He also wrote about the rise of the Tucantorhah

 And about the importance of the Common Consent

as the ruling law among the Nemenhah.

Rather than lose their peaceable ways, all of the Nemenhah of Menintah Valley

moved to Nespelhem and Potalekt areas.

He told about the arrival of a group of people from the West Sea Islands

 Who are called the Nemen of Hin.

Who become part of the Nemenhah of the Coast.

Timothy’s visit to the Nemenhah of Nespelhem and Potalekt,

 And some of his teachings to them,

including the restoration of Zion in the Last Days, were written.

The Book of Shi Honayah Akektim

The son of Mor Honayah

Chapter One

1) In the ninety and second year from the ending of the Great War between the Nephites and the Lamanites.

Mor Honayah gave up the ghost and was laid down to rest with his forefathers.

2) And he (Mor Honayah) did serve as high priest to his people in all those years, either in the city of Mentinah or in his own city.

And behold, he did govern the house of the Lord in righteousness.

Yea, and he did steward the records of his people and care for them.

3) But this is not all, for he did many great and noble works during the days of his probation which he did not write about himself.

For he was a man of great opinion and confidence, having been trained from his
youth to be a leader of men.

Nevertheless, he did strive all the days of his life to bend in himself his own arrogance,

that he became not puffed up in pride.

Yea, he did practice humility in the days of his life and he did earnestly work to nurture kindness in his heart, against the teachings of his youth.

4) For behold, Mor Honayah was a man of war.

Yea, of a necessity, he was brought up in war and he was trained for war.

In all the making of the tools of war he was expert and in their use there could be no
greater master.

Wherefore, even from his youth he was destined to be a captain, even a great general, in
the armies of the Nephites.

And behold, he did attain to the leadership of their armies, not because he was
the son of Mormon, but because he was more accomplished in the workings of war than any other man.

And because of this he was elevated rapidly in rank, so that, when his father was killed in battle, he was made ruler over the armies of the Nephites in their final struggle.

5) Now, can you see the conflict that this experience might create in the heart of Mor Honayah?

This was the thing that he was to carry all the days of his life.

For, the Nephites prevailed not.

And the knowledge of Mor Honayah did not prevail.

All the workings of war and the machinations of battle availed the Nephites nothing in the end.

Neither did such things afford any advantage to my father when the struggle with the Lamanites ended in disaster.

And this thing did my father carry with him for the rest of his life, and it was a struggle for him.

6) But Mor Honayah bent his own nature and created out of his knowledge of war a wisdom in the use of tools.

And this peaceable thing did he make out of the learning he had acquired during his younger years.
With this wisdom he did elevate himself again in the eyes of the people.

Yea, the Nemenhah saw in him that which was needed by the people in the way of leadership and they did elevate him to the seat of high priest in the stead of Heinmet.

And this was the way with him.

7) For, it is certain that Mor Honayah could not remain in that frame of mind wherein he found himself at the disaster that was the conclusion of the Nephite war.

Yea, he had need of a change of heart in order that he might continue to live in the land.

Had he not a mighty change of heart, then he certainly could not have lived as long as he did, for the pain of his past experience will have eaten at him day by day, and this will have beaten down his soul and his will to live.

8) But he bent this nature in him to better purpose.

He went from the teaching of war to the teaching of peace.

He became a peacemaker in his own city and also in all the cities of the Nemenhah of the
mountain places.

His preaching was of peace.

His walking was in peace.

His talking was of peace.

And he did preach the kingdom of God in all places, at all times, to all people.

9) And the people of his own city, even Elak Kowat, did make him their high priest and he did serve them with all his might.

But this is not all, he did also utilize his experience in his stewardship and in this were the people greatly blessed and magnified.

By his experience, he taught the people to pay more heed to personal purification than to public oblation and that the ordinances had for their purpose to bring the participant unto the Peacemaker, who is Christ, the same who is mighty to save, rather than that the ordinances themselves were a means unto salvation.

In this the people became doers of the word and not hearers only.

Yea, in this did the people take up the account for their own emergence

and they were very much the better for it.

10) For, during the stewardship of Mor Honayah, there rose up a division of doctrine

and it began in the city of Mentinah.

Yea, in all Menintah there was a division of thought concerning the priesthood and the ordinances, a thing which had never happened before.

And some believed as Mor Honayah that the ordinances were for the purpose of bringing souls unto the Peacemaker and that He would lead them and direct them into exaltation.

But there were those whose beliefs had been modified by the teacher Tucantor and they believed that salvation comes only through the church and the priesthood.
 

11) Now, this difference of belief did divide the people and they did begin to contend one with another.

For, the common offering of the people, wherein they did make a consecration of their surplus goods, has always been in the hands of the high priest to administer unto the needy.

But, being that there were very few who could be called needy in Mentinah, and indeed in all the cities of the Nemenhah, the surplus became very great.

Such was the blessing of the manner in which the Nemenhah did choose to live.

12) But this great surplus gave the management of great wealth into the hands of the high priest, and this did corrupt the minds of many.

For because of it, it became possible for the priests and the high priests to live upon the surplus and never lift their hands to any kind of work with their hands, claiming that the demands upon the priesthood were too great to allow for them to labor.

And this is the thing which Tucantor taught his followers and he established priests over his flock.

13) And it had always been the custom that the priests and the high priests were given to use the common offering because they were called upon by the people to a stewardship that took much of their time and prevented them from creating a surplus of their own.

Nevertheless, this was never intended to take from them the responsibility to work with their hands along side the rest of the people.

14) But the division which did arise among the people on this point of doctrine, which was known by the people as the Tucantorhah, as were the people who followed it, did hold that the priesthood was to be given only to men and that their responsibility was only to the ordinances and the administration of the churches, and that they were thus relieved of any other labor.

15) And the common surplus was so great in some cities that the management of it constituted great wealth and great ability to control the lives of men and women.

Yea, he who had the governing of the surplus, by necessity gained a certain amount of power.

For, by its use many great things could be accomplished.

16) But this was not the aim of the Tucantorhah.

They were men who craved dominion over the souls of men.

Yea, they did entice with flattering words many men to come into their fold and to make their offerings to them and not into the common surplus.

And they did begin to build up a city within the city and to draw away the people into the gaining of great wealth

17) Now, when the leaders of the people do this, how shall the people not follow? With this teaching in their hearts, the Tucantorhah began to horde up their surplus unto themselves, just as their high priest did gather in all things unto himself.

And as they saw their high priest do, so did they also.

18) And the high priest taught that only he could confer the priesthood and that it was upon the principles of worthiness that he prescribed and set forth that a man might elevate himself above his fellow men by attaining it.

This was the great evil of the Tucantorhah and their teachings – that the people could look to
mere man to declare their worthiness and had no responsibility for it themselves.

And following this principle, every one of the followers of the Tucantorhah did judge each their fellow man and they did set themselves up in tiers and in hierarchies.

19) You can believe it!

The followers of this religion did begin to judge each other upon this model also, each declaring to his fellow his righteousness and proving it by the approbation of the high priest and also by the amount of his offering and the importance of his position.

For, if the high priest could hold sway over all the people by virtue of his position and because of the ordinances which only he could perform, then every man could do the same with his own stewardship.

20) And they saw in this a means whereby a caste of workers could be built up and controlled so that they would have no more need of labor.

And they calculated to live lives of leisure and of pleasure because of their dominion over the labor of others.

21) By taking control over who might own the priesthood, the Tucantorhah did also seek to take control over the entire city and all the people.

For, to control the surplus is to control the stewardships, and to control the priesthood is to control the ordinances.

Therefore, according to the doctrine of Tucantor, both the temporal and the spiritual life of the people were to be placed under the stewardship of the high priest o the city and of those whom he chose to anoint to the priesthood.

22) And Tucantor sought to raise himself up as a prophet king and a ruler unto the people, deciding for them what was right both for the maintenance of their bodies and their families and also who might avail themselves of ordinances necessary for salvation, according to his doctrine.

This was his design and at first, at least, there were many in Mentinah who followed him.

It is certain that so many did follow Tucantor in the beginning that the people were divided down the middle, the half believing in the teaching of the new prophet

and the other remaining faithful to the doctrine of personal revelation and accountability.

23) And his priests did not labor for their upkeep, but they did eat the provender given in offering by the believers who did labor.

And they became indolent and lazy.

And they did pass daily judgment on the people who were given them as their stewardship to shepherd, and very often this judgment was unrighteous and calculated only to edify themselves, that they might be further enriched in their persons.

And because of the doctrine of the high priest, only those who were appointed by him could make
privilege of the offerings of the people.


24) In the streets did the followers of Tucantor’s doctrine contend with the people of Mentinah. And in the public houses they did contest with their neighbors.

And even in the synagogues they did cause disputations and it was not uncommonly done that the Tucantorhah would so disrupt the meetings that the people went away with strife in the hearts.

And the Tucantorhah went from door to door declaring this new doctrine and demanding that their neighbors give to them of their surplus, because that their hig priest had once been thrown out of the High Place and made a beggar in the streets.

And this was to take advantage of the custom of the people that no beggar was to be allowed to raise up his petition without being heard and answered by the people

25) For they did also teach that salvation is only possible through the administration of certain necessary ordinances, and these could only be performed by men unto whom the high priest should give the priesthood.

But they went door to door declaring that their prophet had been made a beggar and that if the
people failed in their covenant which they had made according to the Law of Consecration, they could not be saved in the Kingdom of God.

And they also taught that because the people had made a beggar of their high priest, they had given up all authority to perform ordinances.

Indeed, the Tucantorhah claimed that the people had exercised unrighteous dominion over their chosen high priest and that this disqualified them for the blessings of heaven and necessitated a regulation of the priesthood and of the church.

26) But this dissention did not go much further than the city of Mentinah.

For, Tucantor taught that all authority was held by the high priest of the city, but he could not convince the people that all high priests fell under his stewardship.

And his time and energy was taken up preaching to his growing body of followers in Mentinah, to the effect that his doctrine had little opportunity to infect very greatly in other places.

27) Whereas Mor Honayah did have occasion to travel about and to teach in the synagogues and in the councils of the various cities and settlements in Menintah and also in the region immediately north and south of Mentinah.

And also, because of his relationship with the city of Nespelhem, he did also have occasion to visit that region and to teach in their synagogues.

28) And Micah, the same who called for the council of Mentinah to hear the matter of Tucantor, did also travel about to teach the way of the Nemenhah in all the cities.

Even out to the Nemenhah of the Plains and to Corianton did he also travel to give word of the things that were taking place in Mentinah.

29) And the teaching of these men was great and powerful to the convincing of the people to retain to what they had received by the Lord and to avoid the teachings of the Tucantorhah which came into their ears in diverse manners.

For, they were men of great renown and also they taught with the Spirit.

And the people believed them because the Holy Ghost did testify to them the truth of their words.

30) Now, Mor Honayah taught a simple message, and these are the words which he taught whenever he was called upon to open his mouth:

31) Behold, though a man live to the life of a tree, yet is he felled by time and decay, and though his days shall be long and prosperous, even so are they shortened and come to an end.

Wherefore, is long life any test of worth?

I say unto you, Nay.

The life of man, be it long or short, does not qualify him

32) And behold, a man may have many cattle and horses, and his fields may bloom and give forth great abundance.

Yea, and his house may be filled with provender and his storehouse overrunning with surplus.

And yet, is he well?

Does the shaft of death not fell him also as the forester does fell a tree in the forest?

What can he buy with grain and beasts when his days are come to an end?

I say unto you, All his goods cannot buy him even one day longer than the appointed time.

33) Yea, and a man may seize upon a wife of great renown, yea, a wife of wisdom and of talents.

And without question he may be greatly blessed in the companionship of his wife.

Yet, can she with all her talents turn away the shaft of death in the appointed time?

34) And behold, a man may build him a city with many towers and he may rule that city in righteousness.

Yea, his people may make him a king unto them and raise him up a standard and an ensign to the nations of the world.

And even such a king may be blessed of the Lord with great wisdom, and great stores of
knowledge to the good of all his subjects.

Yet, in the appointed time, shall he escape death?

35) In all things then, the king is the same as the bondservant.

Yea, the great and mighty are as the small and the weak and nothing may prevent every one of us from following the same path when the appointed time of the Lord comes upon us.

Yea, the first and the greatest have no advantage over the last and the least in the due time of the Lord.

36) For, though all men become priests and kings, even after the right manner of the Lord, shall they gain sovereignty over that law which the Creator has set before the foundation of the world?

I say unto you, Nay.

Kings and paupers shall stand in their lot in the hour appointed and no priesthood or kingship shall
grant them reprieve.

Not even the mightiest man may buy with money, or with fame, or with riches, or with authority, any advantage over any of the children of men.

Behold and beware, we shall go when we shall go.

37) And behold, my good wife may be a Healer and balm my pain and treat my ills all of my life. And in her very accomplished and skillful way she may extend the day of my life but only a moment.

And again, with all her talent she may make of my walk a pleasant journey and of my talk a sweetened song.

But, when my life has come to the appointed time, can she remove the hour with all her talent and with all goodness?

Who can answer me?

38) Yea, and I may say that I have never wanted for food in all the days of my life, and therefore might I boast that I shall not leave it by starvation.

Yet, with all my cattle and all the harvest of my fields, and with all the food on my table and in my storehouse, yea, withal that I do give unto the needy and provide that never a beggar shall stand at my hearth but that I do fill his arms and his belly and let not his entreaty rise up without answer, even so, may I say that the Lord shall take away the hour from me because of all this?

Nay.

39) And though I become as Methuselah of old, or as Father Adam and live nine hundred years or more, behold, I might boast of long life and many days, but will the day foretold in the great song of my creation be forestalled because of my great age?

40) Yea, and in all these things can we lay claim to anything different than that which does also befall all things living?

I say unto you, Nay.

For, every blade of grass does burst from the earth in the appointed time and it does grow and prosper.

And by and by it does give of its grain and its corn does ripen.

Then does it cast its seed into the earth and wither.

And behold, there is not one blade of grass that is not blown down in the blast and broken with the frost.

And the snow does flatten it that it fall down even unto the earth.

The same is it with all living things

41) Yea, and all wild beasts of the forest and of the mountain do drop their young and they do grow and prosper according as their Creator shall warrant.

Yet, do they not also grow ill and halt?

And when they do, that same Creator does appoint the hour of their failing and also the manner of their disposition, that not one thing is wasted.

42) And so it is with horses and with cattle, and with all living things that do walk upon the earth or fly upon the winds or swim upon the waves.

There is not one thing unto which the Father has given matter and unto which the Mother has given life that shall not fulfill the measure of its creation.

And if it is measured, it shall have its beginning and it shall have its end.

43) Yea, and though man build his house of solid and durable stone, shall it stand forever? Or how long will it stand?

When heaven and earth pass away, shall it remain?

I say unto you, Not one stone shall be left standing atop another, for all things have their appointed time and not one thing shall avoid that which has been set in the Creation.

44) Wherefore, man does not stand alone in the determining of all things, but has an equal portion in all the law of creation.

Though a man be more intelligent than they all, yet is he felled as quick, for the bounds of this life are set and few there might be who have recourse from them.

They are mighty and strong indeed, but not of themselves.

45) Yea, even the very House of the Lord, which man shall build because of the commandment of God, yea, even so mighty a house as that, shall not last but shall crumble into the earth out of which it was fashioned.

And the Holy City, though it might lay claim to much preservation through many generations
of men, even so it does decay, for it is decreed.

46) And all the beasts of the field, shall live out their appointed lives and fulfill the full measure of their creation.

For the Lord has measured and drawn the cord around them all.

And behold, He has decreed the times and the seasons thereof.

47) And the waste places are peopled with the wild beasts and are the space of their days also not measured unto them according to that decree made in heaven when the Lord did mete out their dominion on the earth?

Or does the Lord not also know His kingdom and measure it with the cord, and pace the borders
around thereof?


48) And behold, men and women do share all this with the other living things of this creation.

And the Creator has given us dominion over all these things, or in other words, the stewardship of them.

But, having the stewardship of them, does this mean that we in our carnal state, are ought different from them?

I say unto you, Nay, for we are all relations.

49) For this is the state in which the Creator did make us and He has placed the bounds of this creature condition.

But is this all the life of man?

Is this that wondrous thing to which we look forward with a brightened and gleaming vision of faith?

Is this the crown and the scepter promised to the sons and daughters of the King of Heaven?

Nay, I say unto you, that King has provided means whereby His heirs shall inherit His kingdom and emerge from out of their created state.

And behold, toward that end, He has given commandments and ordinances to guide us even unto that stature and perfection necessary to steward a greater work than this.

50) Behold, when a man or a woman undertake to learn the stewardship of the carpenter, do they simply take up the carpenter’s tools and build a lintel?

I say unto you, Nay, but they do make themselves an apprentice to the master of the craft.

Yea, they do work under the tutelage and mentoring of one who is already great in skill and in knowledge.

How is it, then, that men do take up the work and will of the Lord glibly and without forethought?

51) And the master does assign unto the apprentice tasks to complete which each in its turn do teach principles that are of great importance to the craft.

And the apprentice works diligently at the tasks until proficiency is attained.

Yea, the apprentice is perfected in each skill by its practice under the watchful eye of the master.

And behold, the performance of each task does hone and perfect the skills of the apprentice.

52) Yea, and the apprentice moves from one skill to another in due course as the master shall decree.

And even when the master shall discern a degree of competence and commitment in the apprentice, he does assign that one to assist those less knowledgeable and less skilled so that they also might gain even that which, through steadfastness and diligence, he has obtained.

And even in inexperience, yet is experience gained in more than just the working of the wood, but also in the teaching of those who would come after him.

53) Behold, I say unto you, The Lord is no different in this than the carpenter, or the raddle miller, or the fuller, or the weaver, or the potter, or any other maker of goods.

For behold, He does desire that we should become like even unto Himself, the Master.

And He does also give us assignments that are designed to give us the mastery of His craft through steadfastness and diligence.

And the tasks that He assigns are the commandments, and the manner in which He does call us out to labor and to teach is the priesthood.

Can you see how He hones us?

Can you see how He perfects us?

54) And it is obedience unto these things that does begin to change this corruptible into something more refined.

Yea, by the Law of Obedience we do accept and learn the Gospel.

Wherefore, it is called the Law of Obedience and the Gospel.

And it is by this law that men begin to set aside the natural man and take up that which is spiritual.

It is also by this law that men begin to understand that the natural law is part of the celestial world, but that man’s knowledge of it is woefully insufficient.

Wherefore, he does begin by performances to exercise a little of the spiritual into the material, and in so doing he discovers God in everything.

55) And we are not beasts unto the Lord.

For, though He loves and saves all the creations of His hands, we are the sons and daughters of God, even His Father and Mother which are in Heaven.

Behold, He does surely desire that we emerge out of this corruptible and arise into an incorruptible. Yea, just as a potter does not wish that his apprentice should make wares that crumble in the kiln, so also does the Lord desire that we shall aspire to His stature and become as He is.

Wherefore, He does give commandments the obedience to which shall cause us to arise even unto His stature

56) And look!

The good master does teach more than just the mechanics of the trade.

He is not an evil taskmaster but would have us all become the molders and modelers of talent and of abilities.

Yea, He does give us stewardship of the development of others.

See how He is concerned that we learn to become like Him in character and not only in skill.

For, is the apprentice who learns under the good taskmaster ever the servant of his teacher?

Of a surety it is so, for the apprentice becomes as the master.

But, shall not the apprentice who learns his skill under the tyrant always wish to be released from his contract?

Behold, the Lord is the good taskmaster.

57) And behold, He does not give commandments because the kingdom has been delivered into His hands.
He commands us so that we may learn by principle and by deed what manner of men and what manner of women we ought to become.

Yea, He gives commandments for no other purpose.

And the priesthood, and the administration of our callings in it, has but one purpose also – it is to teach us how to set down this corruptible and take up the mantle of His mastery.

58) For behold, in the performance of our duty in the priesthood, we do demonstrate our willingness to keep His commandments and to do His will instead of our own.

In this are we perfected in Him.

Yea, the roughness of our imperfection is taken off of us one task at a time, just as the stone is squared one blow at a time.

59) Wherefore is this law part of that great thing that He has revealed unto the prophets and it is part of that great thing which is done in the High Place.

Behold, because of it we might strive to become even as He is.

This is the thing which He most desires of us, and behold, it ought to be the thing we most desire of
ourselves.

60) Now, do men and women labor only to feed themselves?

Behold, I say unto you, Nay.

For, of what value is such self-service?

Is it enough to strive through life merely to end each day without hunger?

Or is there
more to living than the filling of the belly?

And is life measured by the amount of meal in the bottle or wine in the skin?

61) For behold, if the wineskin is foul, shall the wine thereof be good for the belly?

And no unclean or impure thing may stand in the presence of the Lord, wherefore, how shall a man ever stand there?

He must learn to sacrifice of himself freely through serving his fellow man.

Verily, this shall cleanse him of his selfishness.

62) Wherefore, it is by sacrifice that we are made pure.

Yea, we do cleanse ourselves of our physical impurities when we do emulate the sacrifice of the Lord.

Yea, we do give of our water and of our oil, and yet our cup does run overfull.

Behold, in this sacrifice, which is in the similitude of His sacrifice and of woman’s, we do purify ourselves in the body.

And this is also the purpose of our fasting and our prayer.

63) And it is obedience to the observance of these things whereby we become like unto our Lord. And behold, it is called the Law of Sacrifice because of the great sacrifice that He made for all of us.

By it we are made more perfect, being able to set aside our needs and wants in order that we may more clearly see the wants and the needs of others.

Behold, if we can become as He is, and sacrifice for the sake of all living, then have we learned to live this law more perfectly.

64) Yea, the Lord did make a sacrifice and did give us this law that we might become like Him in all things.

For, women do make this sacrifice for the sake of all living, and in it and through it we have our being.

Even He, the greatest of all, did make an emblem of the type and kind of His sacrifice, for it was like unto that rendered for us by all mothers.

And so we see that the sacrifice of women is the emblem of our physical sacrifice.

Even so is the sacrifice of the Lord an emblem of our spiritual sacrifice.

65) And behold, the Lord did tread the wine and cleanse the press after Him.

Yea, He did make the sacrifice that shall purify us every whit.

But we must avail ourselves of His great sacrifice.

Yea, we must commit ourselves to become like Him.

Behold, if we are the wine of His sacrifice, then let us be pure wine of His own making.

Let us do all that we can to do what we see Him do.

And does our body suffer ought from the purification after the manner of the Children of Ammon?

Can we ever suffer as He did for us?

Of a surety not.

But we may make an attempt to be like Him who suffered for us.

66) In fasting and in prayer we do come closer to the true meaning of living.

For out of such sacrifice we do create the means wherewith we might also measure out sustenance unto the needy.

And does our belly suffer ought because of our fasting?

Behold, I say unto you, Nay.

But we are the more purified of the corruption of the world.

Yea, our body is made more purified.

And behold, even our spirit is the more purified, for we have sacrificed not for the sake of our own, but for the sake of the needy.

67) Wherefore is this not also part of that great thing that He has revealed unto the prophets and also part of that great thing which is done in the High Place?

Behold, because of it we might strive to become even as He is by doing the things we see Him do.

This is the thing which He most desires of us, and behold, it ought to be the thing we most desire of ourselves.

68) Behold, did not the Lord teach us that, in the beginning of all things, even in the creation, that man is not without the woman, nor is the woman without the man, but the one working alone brings together but does not create?

69) It is verily so, that the Father may bring together matter and materials.

Indeed, a man may build him a house with rooms for every purpose.

Then what? Shall he sit the day long in the house by himself?

There is no purpose in this, for a man can just as easily sit alone upon a rock out under the heavens and be as content.

70) And a woman may bear a child and take it into her arms and give it nourishment at her breast. But how shall she nurture that child without protection?

Shall she find a hollow of a tree or a tussock of grass in which to hide her child while she goes out into the wilderness to gather together the stuff of life with which to sustain the fruit of her womb?

71) Wherefore, a man builds a house and the woman enters into it, and it does provide safety for the little ones.

This is family purpose and it is holy.

72) And it is obedience unto these things that does begin to change the man and the women into something which is unified.

Yea, by the Law of Chastity we do also accept and learn the Gospel.

And it is by this law that men do bind themselves unto women and women do bind themselves unto men.

And this is a thing that must be, if they are to become truly as the Creator.

For, without the binding of the Mother and the Father, there is not anything created that is created.

And again, by this law men and women begin to understand that the natural law is part of the celestial world, but that man’s knowledge of it is entirely insufficient.

Wherefore, he does begin by performances to exercise a little of the spiritual into the material, and in so doing he discovers God in everything.

73) The same is the family of God.

The Eternal Father gives that endowment of power which does provide place.

The Eternal Mother gives the endowment of power which brings life unto all the place.

Together they create, and without the two endowments of power there is no creation

74) Yea, because of the Mother, we may perceive ourselves and know that we are.

Verily, we are intelligent of our surroundings and of the creation because of that which She has given.

Yea, it is Her endowment that gives us self-knowing and because of that, we may know who we verily are and what is our place in the Universe.

75) And behold, because of the Father, we have purpose and function.

Yea, there is much that is organized and that will obey the word and will of the Creator.

We have our physical bodies and the physical world because of His endowment, and because He has shared His power with us, we are given to duplicate His work.

76) Wherefore, when a man and a woman make a covenant bond one with another, when their corruptible becomes incorruptible, yea, when heaven and earth pass away, yet shall that bond wherewith they did bind themselves pass not away.

For behold, by that endowment of power given us of the Holy Ghost, yea, even that which seals all things unto the Lord which are His indeed, verily we are sealed up also unto Him and become His.

Wherefore, that bond by which the man and the woman do bind themselves, and that covenant, are also sealed by this Holy Spirit of Promise and their contract becomes durable, being that it does belong to one who is eternal.

77) And again I ask you, is this not part of that great thing that He has revealed unto the prophets and is it not part of that great thing which is done in the High Place?

Behold, because of it we might strive to become even as He is.

This is the thing which He most desires of us, and behold, it ought to be the thing we most
desire of ourselves.

78) But, it is the way of the world that men do purport to own the earth because the Lord did give it unto us.

Wherefore, every man thinks that his possessions are given him of God and that his wealth is a blessing from God.

But can he truly own the earth?

For, it is God’s footstool.

79) And men do gather unto themselves every good thing and they do esteem themselves mighty because of their many possessions.

Behold, they heap up riches and the praise of the world, but is there satisfaction in any of it?

Can anything coveted by man save him?

80) And behold, he does cover himself with every precious thing.

Yea, with the fineness of his clothing he does show his greatness unto his neighbor.

And he does put on precious things, of gold and silver, and adorn himself with rings and with precious stones and every costly thing.

And this is to manifest to his neighbor his high stature.

81) But behold, the Lord has bid us come out of Babylon and touch not her uncleanness.

Yea, we have been shown a more perfect way and we have proven it in our walk and in our talk.

Shall we cast aside what He has taught us for a potsherd?

Shall we esteem the work of our own hands greater than His majesty?

Shall we choose the slavery of the world over that liberty with which He does make us free?

82) And it is obedience unto these things that does begin to change the man and the community and the family of man into something which is unified.

Yea, by the Law of Consecration we do also accept and learn the Gospel.

And it is by this law that men and women do prove that they can put aside the Babylon in their hearts and cast off and subdue the natural man.

Yea, and we do demonstrate that we are not subject to the bondage of the world.

Yea, we do prove that we can be built upon the rock and firm foundation of the Lord and of His house.

Verily, this is a thing that must be, if we are to become truly as the Creator.

For behold, the Lord cannot establish Zion in any degree of slavery or bondage.

Wherefore, how can we say that we are His people, and yet bind ourselves to the world?

And again, by this law men and women begin to understand that the natural law is part of the celestial world, but that man’s knowledge of it is entirely insufficient.

Wherefore, they do begin by performances to exercise a little of the spiritual into the material, and in so doing, do they not discover God in everything?

83) And behold, He has loosed the bonds of our indenture.

Yea, He has broken the slavery with which we were bound.

And every man and woman that walks any street or plies any trade in the cities of the Nemenhah enjoys the same freedom because of the path that the Lord has taught us.

Yea, behold, there is not a beggar in all the cities and no one is bound to any other.

Behold, He has taken us into His own house and we are adopted of Him.

We are become as His own heirs, wherefore, of what value is gold?

84) Shall not the crown and the scepter be enough for us when He does gather in His household?

And what shall gold and silver purchase when all things are naturally provided for our use?

And behold, shall the sons and daughters of God esteem each the other differently because of the manner in which they are dressed?

I say unto you, Nay.

85) And what shall be our desire, who enjoy the treasures of eternity?

Shall we desire anything bought of money?

Or what shall be bought when the Holy Ghost brings all things to our remembrance, and when
the Son of God does give unto us all that the Father has?


86) And I ask you, what kingdom of men shall compare to that glory we shall receive in the kingdom of God?

What plot of land, field or parcel shall compare to the mansions that our Lord has spoken of?

And shall we not render again all that is His when we come into His presence?

Then, I ask you, if it is the best that we can do in this life to come unto Him even in this flesh, is not all that we might amass now but dross?

For the world, and all that is, belongs to no mere man, but is the Lord’s footstool.

Wherefore, how may a man own the world or even any portion of it?

87) Behold, I say unto you, These are fundamental principles which are taught in all the scriptures.

Yea, they are four basic and foundational precepts upon which all the law and the prophets are built.

And is it possible that a man or a woman may learn and perfect these four laws without the priesthood?

Can they do this without the church?

I say unto you, Yea, it is verily possible, howbeit the more difficult for the lack of them.

88) Now, I do not mean to speak against such things, but only to say that in their absence the Lord has always provided a means by which the Children of God may accomplish that which they have been commanded to do.

Yea, even if it is only that which they received in the first council which was in heaven, barring any
other gospel, which shall draw them unto Christ.

89) For God is no respecter of persons and what He provides for one He does provide for all.

And, if He provides a means whereby one might be saved from this corruption, then He surely provides a means whereby all may be saved.

For, this is His express purpose, to provide for the perfected state into which He would that His children might come.

90) And behold, He does give unto some disciples, and unto others prophets.

And unto still others He does give priests and teachers and all manner of ministers of many kinds. And it is very often through these ministers that the Lord does teach His gospel, and He does also use them to beckon the people to come unto Him.

As also the churches and the synagogues, yea, they also serve this purpose.

But, that He does call out His servants that they might further His purpose, does this necessarily mean that He cannot do it without them?

Or, is the Lord dependent upon any man in order that His word and will might be carried out unto the children of men?

I say unto you, Nay.

91) For behold, men and women must rely upon the Lord, and upon the peculiar workings of the Holy Ghost, in order to know the truth of anything.

And this ceases not to be even when he has given prophets and priesthood.

How then shall men decide for the Lord what is true and what is right?

And if men may not decide for the Lord what is true, how then shall they decide for other men, being the sons of God?

92) Behold, He has promised that He shall do nothing without revealing his secrets unto His servants the prophets, of this you may be sure.

And you may also be sure that, when such prophets and ministers, yea, the servants of the Lord, do speak by the power of the Holy Ghost, behold, they do reveal unto men and women the very mysteries of God.

But does this signify that the mysteries may only be gained through such?

Behold, I say unto you, The man who shall teach such things only seeks to take hold upon the yoke
of Christ and bind it unto his own oxen.

Then does he strive to drive the Lord to and fro.

Shall this become the purpose of priesthood?

93) And where men worship God, they do raise up places where such oblations may be made.

Yea, and such places are good for the Lord’s work, inasmuch as they do provide a place for the people to come together in unity.

And these places of worship do become of great importance unto the people, for they do
demonstrate, at least in part, their dedication to the Lord in the building of their churches and their
synagogues.

And especially in the constructing of the lodges of the High Place do they honor their God.
But does all this building of buildings in order to give honor unto their God signify that they may not honor Him in their homes or in the byways?

Behold, I exhort you, never believe it.

94) For behold, in our first home, yea, even in that creation out of which we came before the world was, we did meet with our Father and we did sit down with Him, and we did honor Him when we received of Him the New and Everlasting Covenant.

Yea, the council was of great personal import unto us and we did take it up each one according to our own volition and our agency.

Did He command us to obey Him?

Nay!

But we did hear His plan freely and we did take it up personally.

95) Wherefore, even without such things as churches and priesthood, we have within us a memory of the things that were accomplished there, and, in the absence of any other help or comfort, surely the Holy Ghost shall bring such things to our remembrance.

Or shall we be left alone in a dreary world to find out the truth of all things by the strength of the arm of flesh?

Shall we secure eternity upon the wisdom of the wise only?

96) On the contrary.

Behold, the Lord does provide all people in all times the means whereby they might seek His face personally.

And He does give four great tasks and commandments unto the children of men.

And, if they do avail themselves of these commandments, observing to keep them and to strive to perfect them, then are they taken speedily upon the Way.

And behold, you may believe it, when you shall walk upon the Way with the wind beneath your feet, you shall see even the very face of God.

Yea, you shall have come even unto Him as He has always beckoned His children to do, and you shall receive of Him all things that shall be necessary for you.

Yea, when the Lord is your guide, and when the Lord is your mentor and teacher, do you believe that you shall lack any thing?

Do you believe that any other person  might be the bringer of greater light and greater truth than that which the Lord and the Holy Ghost together might bring you?

Nay, but believe it not.

For, mere man has not all things before him, as the Lord surely does have.

Wherefore, we must come unto Christ in order that we might be presented at the
veil, in order that we might converse again with the Father face to face.

97) This is the plan, even the great purpose of the Lord our God, and shall any man, no matter his priesthood, bring us closer to the Father than Him?

Shall any man have greater doctrine or teachings?

Shall any ordinance do more to demonstrate that we do draw ourselves nigh unto Him than that we stand in His mighty presence?

Behold, where can such nonsense be believed?

98) Wherefore, you Nemenhah, believe it not when a man comes to your door and declares to you that you may only receive that which is necessary for salvation’s sake from some man or set of men.

Believe it not when such men come into the synagogue and preach unto you a gospel of troubles. Let not such provocations enter into your hearts.

99) And when self-sustaining and self-serving men do seek to change the doctrine of peace, do not strive with them, but strive only with the Spirit.

For, if you maintain that promise which the Lord has given you, do you think that He will leave you comfortless in the time of trouble and of uncertainty?

I say unto you,

Nay.

He shall surely speak to you.

Wherefore, you shall have no purpose in strife with your fellowman on account of the gospel or of gospels.

Seek the face of God and the disturber shall give you no pause.

100) And when you are accused of creating a beggar out of that man who shall continually rebel against the Lord, behold, give him of your surplus but only as much as will fill his immediate needs.

Yea, feed him but for that day only and you shall fulfill righteousness.

But give not the stewardship of your surplus into his hands who shall claim it by right of priesthood.

101) And behold, when a man does strive to usurp ought that has been given from on high, do not give him of your time or your attention.

Nay, strive not with him at all, for his argument is wickedness.

Wherefore, how shall you properly steward the precious time the Lord has given you in contending with him who shall speak nonsense?

For, has the Lord Himself not taught certain things plainly?

Then why shall we spend our time justifying His words in repetition?

102) And in all things let us hold true to those precious principles that He has taught us. Do you doubt the words of the scriptures?

Then I exhort you, put them to the test.

Inquire of the Lord concerning the object of your doubt.

Do you believe that He shall not answer you because that He has spoken unto others already?

Behold, this is folly, for who shall decide for the Lord but Himself when He is finished speaking
and when He shall say no more to any man.

Is it within you to dictate unto whom He shall give instruction, be you great or small?

I say unto you, Nay.

103) And when a man shall declare unto you that the Lord is a respecter of persons, and that He does give unto some and that He does withhold His word and His will from others, you may believe that such a one is a thief and a robber.

Yea, he is a liar and puts words in the Lord’s mouth, even dishonorable words.

For behold, shall a man turn unto his Lord to speak to Him if he does not also strive to do away with his sins?

Can he think to come unto God in any state of wickedness?

And should any man or woman be denied access to a forgiving Lord?

Or is His love so conditional?

104) Behold, sit at the feet of prophets and of teachers and be instructed of them.

But do not rely upon them for ought that you think might be important for salvation.

Nay, you cannot surrender your personal responsibility in this thing to any man.

Shall he declare unto you that you must or you give up your salvation, do but render unto him of your courtesy in return, but not of your confidence.

For such a one boasts of private knowledge and seeks to regulate God and His goodness.

Behold, a true prophet of God shall never place himself an obstacle between the Lord and His children.

105) For, the Nemenhah know, and I shall hope that all them who would lay claim to belief in Christ do also know, whereunto they shall look for their salvation.

And it is not to any man, but only unto that Holy One who is mighty to save.

Or can any man save a single hair on your head?

I say unto you, To have confidence in the strength of the arm of the flesh shall bring disappointment.

106) For when all people sit at the feet of the Lord for their teaching, and when all people are instructed of the Lord in matters of doctrine and of understanding, behold, they shall all have become prophets and seers.

Yea, they shall speak with the tongues of Angels and shall sit them down even on the right hand of God forever.

Is there greater doctrine to be learned anywhere in the world than this?

And is there any greater teacher to teach this doctrine than the author of it?

107) And with these words did Mor Honayah teach in the temples, in the churches and in the synagogues

To begin your healing and spiritual journey today just…

  Link to: info@nemenhah.org

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

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

 NEMENHAH

Our Mission:

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

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

on the development and support of the intrinsic Family Unit,

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

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

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

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

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

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

for the practitioner and his/her “clients”. 

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

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

Indigenous Consensus Council System passed on to modern Nemenhah

By our Ancestors. 

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

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

 and our Mother Earth. 

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

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

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

Chapter Eighteen

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And they did marry and were given in marriage.

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

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

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

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

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

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

In some of these cities there was division and unrest.

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

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

And they did pervert the ways of the Nemenhah.

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

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

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

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

and they were highly favored of the Lord.

11) And in my own city there was peace.

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

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

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

And I began to feel my Lord call me.

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

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

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

13) And I do finish my record.

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

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

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

And with all my might I do worship Him.

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

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

 Behold, He has done it.

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

 Behold, I do walk daily in that light.

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

Yea, I have been blessed greatly.

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

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

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

Surely, our children are a blessing unto us.

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

Yea, our crops do grow and our beasts multiply.

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

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

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

I say unto you, Nay!

He has led us into His presence.

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

until the day of our death to come unto Him,

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

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

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

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

His presence in our lives?

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

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

the Lord should prepare all things before them?

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

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

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

and hoping to be able to provide for our needs.

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

Lone and dangerous is the world and filled with calamity.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yea, even in the midst of darkness,

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

And behold, walking with Him and in His way,

we may be instructed in all things and emerge,

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

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

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

Then are we not become as the Mother?

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

Yea, is this not a blessing?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And we shall learn war no more.

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

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

For the Lord is our vanguard and our rearguard.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Surely, there can be no greater blessing from heaven

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

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

29) And His yoke is not heavy.

We are not bowed down by His commandments.

His doctrine is simple and it is easy to live.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Such is our Lord unto us.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Surely, I am the most blessed of men.

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

Amen.

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

Greetings all my relations,

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

 

 Vol. 4 

The Record of MorHonayah

The Son of Mormon

Chapter Seventeen

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

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

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

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

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

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

 to make plain who was to administer them

and how they were to be administered.

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

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

And I do include them in my record.

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

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

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

6) And the Ordinance of the Blessing of Children,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wherefore, let all people repent and be baptized.

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

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

after the manner of the Ammonites.

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

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

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

And this is done

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

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

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

And this is done by the laying on of hands.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And behold, every city does this same thing.

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

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

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

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

for she has it already of the Mother.

Wherefore, how may we confer it?

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

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

be they man or woman,

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

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

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

Greetings all my relations,

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

Vol.4

The Record of MorHonayah

The Son of Mormon

Chapter Sixteen

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

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

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

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

2) But there was some truth in his words.

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

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

might learn to serve one another.

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

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

The truth

And have a remembrance of all things.

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

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

For, the Peacemaker is the font of our salvation.

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

And the purpose of priesthood.

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

And to be sealed up His.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Shall Tucantor declare and all simply believe?

Is this sufficient?

I say unto you, Nay.

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

But I have never stepped upon that land.

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

Indeed, how may I do it?

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

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

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

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

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

Or does God exist because the high priest declares it?

I say unto you, Nay.

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

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

Believe it not.

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

I say unto you, Nay.

Or is it the high priest unto whom I must come

to obtain a remission of my sins?

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

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

Not at all.

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

The intent of his heart shall continue to define him.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

give anyone the right or authority to declare worthiness

or to withhold ordinances?

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

And does the priesthood convey dominion over any thing?

I say unto you, It does not.

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

Greetings all my relations,

It is a great day to meet with you again.

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

We return return to study;

Vol 4: The Record of MorHonayah

The Son of Mormon

Chapter Fifteen

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

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

Did gather all living into that great council

wherein they did initiate the New and Everlasting Covenant.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And his name was Tucantor, and he was descended

from Hagoth and from Hementah.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

For, the seer is the servant of the Lord.

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

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

Wherefore, he became the taskmaster of all the people.

8)  And this was grievous to the people.

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

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

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

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

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

To the extent that a division developed among the people.

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

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

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

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

12)  And I answered them saying;

13)  This doctrine is false.

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

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

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

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

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

15)  Now, this was a curious thing indeed.

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

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

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

And I found him not.

Whereupon, we did pass through.

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

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

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

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

19)  And I did answer him.

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

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

Has this ever been?

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

21)  And the man did answer me, saying;

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

Those within are worshipping in reverence.

Be still and disturb them not!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wherefore, there was none to hear our complaint.

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

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

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

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

And he had done it under guise of priesthood.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And are we able to judge our master?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

38)  What is this evil?

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

39)  And I did answer him, saying;

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

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

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

What have you been doing here?

41)  And he answered me, saying;

42)  Go back to Elak Kowat, Mor Honayah.

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

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

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

43)  And I answered him, saying;

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wherefore, make your inquiry.

49)  And I did reason with him;

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

51)  That is correct, Mor Honayah.

The Lord has revealed to me His order.

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

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

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

53)  You speak the truth, Mor Honayah.

The Lord does give of His authority sparingly.

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

54)  And again I answered him saying;

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

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

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

56)  And Tucantor did answer me, saying;

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

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

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

Wherefore, have a care.

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

But I am just a man.

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

How may I test your prophecy?

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

You must obey.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Is this a sound doctrine?

Is this how the Lord has treated with His people?

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

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

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

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

64)  Mor Honayah, you are mistaken.

We live in different times.

Do not judge the Lord your God.

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

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

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

Nay, I would not seek to judge my God.

Let Him do according to His word and will.

For, His ways are always good and just.

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

I shall follow your revelation.

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

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

Yea, there is the Father and the Mother.

And there is the Son.

And there is the Holy Ghost.

And there are many Heavenly Beings.

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

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

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

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

and revelations unto the confirmation of the Holy Ghost.

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

 that we shall test all things.

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

And it is by the unspeakable gift of the Holy Ghost

that all things shall be made know.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Is this truly the will of the Lord?

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

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

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

Does He have no time for us now?

Does He no longer welcome us into His presence?

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

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

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

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

74)  And Tucantor answered me, saying;

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And this authority is the priesthood.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yet have we been confused all these generations.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I say unto you, Nay.

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

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

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

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

For, never had they heard such doctrine.

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

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

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

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

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

86)  And I answered him, saying;

87)  A good thought.

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

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

Who then shall hear the case?

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

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

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

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

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

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

For, I did receive the anointing of God.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Greetings all my relations,

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

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

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

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

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

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

World, Nation, Society and Churches.

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

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

The Old Testament Prophet Micah says…

Micah 4:2

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

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

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

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

For from Zion will go forth the law,

Even the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

3And He will judge between many peoples

And render decisions for mighty, distant nations.

Then they will hammer their swords into plowshares

And their spears into pruning hooks;

Nation will not lift up sword against nation,

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

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

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

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

THE WAYS AND CUSTOMS OF THE AMMONAYAH… 

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

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

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

 The Record of MorHonayah (Moroni)

The Son of Mormon

Vol 4:  Chapter Fourteen;

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

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

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

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

and none may circumvent them.

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

if they receive the commission of Christ,

they may do even the work and will

of the Creator of heaven and earth.

And if women receive also His commission,

they may also do this same work.

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

the beginning of faith,

and another which it fulfills and finishes,

the culmination of faith.

And the preparatory priesthood is called after Levi,

that son of Israel of old.

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

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

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

through this order of the priesthood,

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

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

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

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

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

which has been given to all women.

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

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

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

7)  And all men who have good intention

and who have received through revelation and through the Holy Ghost

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

Yea, and they enter into it with a covenant.

And this is the nature of the covenant:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And the purpose of the calling is also clearly stated.

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

it is finished in the name of the Lord.

11)  This is the pattern

 and though our language may all be different,

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

yet shall a simple pattern always be followed.

This is done so that all creation might

know by whose word and by whose commission you speak

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

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

Wherefore, how may we confer ought else?

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

Or does He place Himself above Her in anything?

I say unto you, He does not.

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

Wherefore, how then shall we?

Behold, let us emulate the Lord.

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

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

Rather, she is ordained with an ordinance.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

through this order of the priesthood,

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

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

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

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

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

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

and the duality of all things 

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

in the Lord.

Yea, by this priesthood,

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

he may learn to act and not be acted upon.

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

and the ordinances of the High Place.

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

Yea, and they enter into it with a covenant.

And this is the nature of the covenant:

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

And that person
shall take them and lay hands upon them

and saying the person’s name plainly

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

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

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

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

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

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

And the purpose of the calling is also clearly stated.

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

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

yet shall a simple pattern always be followed.

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

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

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

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

Rather, she is ordained unto it with an ordinance.

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

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

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

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

and I do this in the name of the Peacemaker.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

By revelation He does commission them.

By revelation He does direct them.

Yea, by revelation He does govern His Church.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 And, having the commission of the Creator,

the matter does recognize in the voice of His servants

that voice which did command them in the beginning.

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

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

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

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

does speak and act in His name

invokes that first day of creation

and once again the matter responds

to the voice of the Master.

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

for all things are as one day to the Lord

and also to that which He did create.

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

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

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

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

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

the elements obey.

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

For the Lord God will not hold you harmless

if you take His name in vain.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

without that He has made known unto them His will?

And, because a man say in his arrogance;

This day I have an endowment from the Lord.

Shall there be any
power in the endowment? Nay!

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

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

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

Do not believe it.

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

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

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

and He shall give unto them an endowment of power

such as only heavenly beings possess.

40)  And He shall declare your election.

Yea, He shall give unto you the Holy Ghost

and all things shall come back to your remembrance.

Then shall He testify to the wind

that He has made your calling and election sure.

Surely, the power of the Creator,

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

shall convey priesthood to them that seek Him.

Behold, this you may believe.

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

if you wait upon His word. 

Surely, He shall reveal unto you His will

and He will instruct you in all things.

42)  And men and women shall speak words of peace

as they are moved upon by the Holy Ghost.

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

them and make them their own.

And is this not scripture?

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

for He shall have instructed them.

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

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

which appertains there unto. And with His commission,

they shall speak and act in His holy name

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

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

44)  For you may believe it,

the Lord does delight in calling His servants

and He does give them power,

both pertaining to things of this life and this world,

as well as lives and worlds without end.

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

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

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

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

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

Behold, he claimed the right of his fathers

to obtain knowledge of all things

and sit upon the right hand of God.

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

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

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

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

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

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

he preserved a curse in the land.

Yea, he preserved a sore curse.

For by the tradition which he did justify,

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

and none could receive the Lord’s commission.

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

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

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

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

but the commission of Him who created us.

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

We do not deceive ourselves in this.

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

that will call upon His name and seek His face.

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

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

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

But such things are not the priesthood,

nay, it does not define it.

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

Yea, the works and ordinances of the priesthood

do place our feet upon a good road,

a straight path,

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

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

Behold, the ordinances do not save us.

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

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

Greetings all my relations,

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

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

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

What are we to do?

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

ASK YOURSELF WWJD?

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

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

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

Behold, this is the Gospel of Jesus Christ,

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

and unto His wisdom,

and His stature as a son of God.

Yea, this is the will of the Lord 

that all might emerge out of what we now are,

into that which we must become,

if we are to be the sons and daughters of God

in more than mere words only.

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

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

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

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

Let’s begin today’s study.

Vol 4: Chapter 13

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Surely he did no injury to his fellowman.

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

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

for through them this same curse continued.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

subduing the flesh.

Verily, this is priesthood.

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

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

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

yet he subdued not his own flesh.

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

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

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

and unto His wisdom,

and His stature as a son of God.

Yea, this is the will of the Lord

– that all might emerge out of what we now are

into that which we must become,

if we are to be the sons and daughters of God

in more than mere words only.

————————————————————————————————

Yea, and the commission of the Lord is priesthood.

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

But without the commission received by the gift of revelation,

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

beautiful but not lasting.

And when the sound of the drumbeat is gone,

what is left of priesthood but memory.

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

And he did confer priesthoods upon his favorites.

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

12)  Wherefore, is priesthood in the conferring?

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

I say unto you, Nay.

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

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

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

13)  Observe these two Noahs and remember the instruction.

For they being dead do continue to teach us still.

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

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

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

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

16)  Oh man!

Never think yourself too big.

Puff not yourself up in the pride of your heart!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Behold, I say unto you,

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

18)  All else is dross.

Yea, I speak clearly that you might understand clearly.

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

they instruct in vanities.

Yea, they utter falsehoods.

Their teaching is a Jaguar woven in cloth.

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

It is the commission of Christ.

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

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

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

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

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

that all women have received the commission of the Mother.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Shall we not be as happy and satisfied with the word

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

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

any man to administer for Him the works of salvation?

Shall not both bring joy to us?

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

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

Greetings all my relations,

Thank you for meeting here with us today.

We are studying the Sacred Records of The Nemenhah

Vol 4: The Record of MorHonayah

Chapter Twelve

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

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

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

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

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

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

or in other words,

that because we remember Him in all that we do,

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

 and cultivate in ourselves that spirit

where with He did teach us to govern our lives.

18)  But this is not all.

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

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

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

that we have our being.

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

we have our lives

and we are also partakers of that covenant.

And it is by the power of the Holy Ghost

that all things may be brought to our remembrance

and be confirmed in us.

Yea, by the power of the Holy Ghost

We may become like our Father and Mother in Heaven.

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

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

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

cj note; How awsome is that? 

 Vol 4: The Record of MorHonayah

Chapter Twelve

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

that I might more fully serve my own city.

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

and prayerfully consider it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now, these are they whom we call Peli.

And they are men or women whom the community

sees are of good heart and
pure intention.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

such as the blessing and naming of children,

blessing of the sick and the afflicted,

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

The ordinances of the High Place and all those things

that must be taught at home to prepare for them.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

or in other words,

that because we remember Him in all that we do,

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

 and cultivate in ourselves that spirit

where with He did teach us to govern our lives.

18)  But this is not all.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yea, by the power of the Holy Ghost

We may become like our Father and Mother in Heaven.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 The teacher stands and reads from the scriptures.

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

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

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

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

And the priest leads us once again in prayer.

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

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

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

And in our oblations.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

31)  But neither the priest of the synagogue nor the high priest are left without that which is needed to immediately assist the stranger, the visitor, or the wayfarer.

For, it is oft the case that such is their state that the wayfarer arrives in the city in desperate need and the priest is called upon to assist with haste.

Wherefore, we always maintain that the priest, whom we call to be a shepherd to the people and a servant, has a store of that which is needed to be of speedy assistance.

32)  Behold, I am reminded of the day that I did arrivein Mentinah from the Nephite wars.

I and my companions whom I had gathered along the way werein desperate need of assistance.

And behold, because of the custom of the Nemenhah, we had no need of making our petition to the Council, but rather, our needs were immediately met by the priest of the synagogue.

For, the first person to see us approaching the city ran out to greet us and, seeing that we were desperate from our long journey and
hungry, took us directly to the priest.

33)  And the priest of the synagogue nearest to the southern approach to the city, for this is the direction in which we did arrive in Mentinah, having crossed a great desert and traversed the mountains, was a woman of great spirit and presence of mind.

And the Nemenhah had made sure that she had a store of those things most required by the wayfarer.

And she did take us in without question or interview, and she did succor us and give us that which we most required, being a place to wash ourselves, sound food and medicine with wine to revive us, and a place to lay ourselves down to rest.

And when we were revived, for we were in sore want, she administered the sacrament of the Lord’s supper with us and revived our spirits as well.

Then did we go up unto the Council and give our report of the war and its outcome.

34)  Now, this is a good custom. For we were desperate for assistance, having come from afar off.

And behold, we were strangers in a strange city.

And our appearance was exceedingly rough.

Yea, we did appear as vagabonds straight from who might know what mischief.

But, becauseof the custom of the people, no one was called upon to judge our intention.

The Nemenhah took care of our immediate needs first.

For, it is also the custom that newcomers come unto the Council to introduce themselves and it is the stewardship of the Council to ascertain one’s intentions.

35)  But behold, it is the stewardship of every individual to feed the hungry and clothe the naked.

And it is the calling of each man and woman to give rest to the weary and to lift up the hands that hang down.

This is the commission of every man or woman which is given unto them of Jesus Christ, who is the Peacemaker.

Above all other stewardships that might be given of men, this one stewardship is given of the Lord and the Nemenhah need no commandment or reminder in it.

They do assure that all who come wanting into their cities are cared for speedily.

36)  For, are we not all wayfarers?

Do we not all travel together the road upon which our Lord has placed us?

And can we say that this road is always pleasant and never rough?

Or is it true that we always go upon our way knowing exactly what will become of us or how our journey will fare?

Can any of us predict one day to the next with certainty?

37)  I say unto you, Nay.

For we have not all things before us and cannot see the end from the beginning.

And if we are all wayfarers, it is good to remember that we may at time fare ill in our journey and require speedy assistance to save our very lives.

If this be the case with us, how can we begrudge our substance to any other?

Yea, and how can we, who have plenty and to spare, fail to make preparations before the time of need to provide for them who have not?

Because we are blind to all that might befall us

is it not wisdom to make preparations?

38)  But behold, it is a peculiar thing among the Nemenhah that we do make preparations not for ourselves, but it is for others that we make preparation, yea, we do it to be of service to our neighbor.

For, what good would our surplus be to him that immediately needs if he must first find us who have made preparation to make his entreaty?

For immediate aid, such a thing would profit no one.

Wherefore, we put up in store in order that no petition may go up unheard and unheeded, nay, not even for a moment.

39)  Now, all the commissions given of Christ for to fulfill His purposes are called by us the Priesthood of God.

Yea, it is by His commission that priests and teachers are called to assist us and to attend to the synagogues.

And it is by His commission that the high priest sees to the management of the High Place and of the surplus of the city and its keeping.

And it is by His commission that mothers and fathers do teach their children and also the stranger in their house.

And it is by His commission that families do sometimes assign Peli with a special calling to assist them with the ordinances and the sacrifices. —————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Behold, the commission of the Lord is the priesthood

 And it is the responsibility of every person to obtain it.

40)  The priest is not the priesthood.

Nay, and the high priest is not the priesthood.

It is that specific word of God that comes to the individual by and through the Holy Ghost that conveys the commission to the heart and soul of a man or a woman.

41)  And behold, when this commission is come into the soul of a person, they come to the priest or the high priest, or to the Peli of a family, and they request a blessing of them to confirm by token and by the laying on of hands of that which has been received of the Lord.

And the priest, the high priest or the Peli shall give whatever words of prophecy or counsel to which the Holy Ghost may give utterance

 And this becomes a witness and an assistance to the individual in fulfilling that commission whereby the Lord has called them.

42)  And if the high priest does call upon a person from out of the names provided by the people to be a priest or teacher unto them, they may not take up the calling until they have sought the confirmation of the Holy Ghost that they have received the commission of the Lord in it.

And if they receive not this confirmation, they do not accept the call, but they do ask the high priest to go again unto the Lord in prayer to affirm the matter.

43)  Behold, the priesthood of God is a serious matter to the Nemenhah and we do not trifle with it.

It is not given to any person without the clear and certain commission of the Lord.

And this commission comes to a person by and through the power of the Holy Ghost.

44)  Now, there is nothing that the is necessary for the salvation of the soul that the Lord might command that differs from the covenant that He did enter into with the Father and with the Holy Ghost.

Wherefore, women, having already received the saving grace

And commission of the Mother

already possess the priesthood of God.

But behold, they must also receive a confirmation of the calling before taking it up for the Lord.

45)  But men have not this grace from their birth and must receive it from the Peacemaker.

This is why the Nemenhah do confer upon those men who are called of God, the priesthood after the orders thereof.

And they are ordained to the offices that are assigned thereto by the laying on of hands after that they have received the commission.

Behold, only they who have received the commission of the Lord to do so may
confer or ordain by the laying on of hands.

46)  Whereas, women are called to the office with a holy calling and a blessing by the laying on of hands as a token of the commission only.

For they have the priesthood already conferred upon them and shall anyone confer that which is already given?

47)  And how shall anyone know that they have truly received the commission and that they do act according to word and will of the Lord?

Behold, they do not set themselves up or apart from their neighbors.

Nay, they do not wear special attire which sets them apart.

And they do not set a mark of any kind upon themselves

to give them distinction that all might look and see

 that they possess the priesthood of God.

48)  It is the responsibility of every person to seek the confirmation of the Holy Ghost that any person has the right to speak and act in the name of God.

And this is done every time an ordinance that requires the commission of the Lord is to be performed.

Behold, the participants shall fast and pray, and if they receive not the confirmation that the right individual has been chosen to perform the ordinance, they return again to fasting and prayer.

49)  Behold, these things are of such import that they are never rushed into.

And if the confirmation of the Holy Ghost is not received, the person is not judged worthy or unworthy.

It is merely that they have not the commission of the Lord in that thing at that time.

For, the priesthood of God is not a thing that is given to all and all at once.

It is a thing that must be cultivated and cared for throughout one’s life.

50)  Yea behold, I may receive the commission on one day and then on the next I may be found in anger against my neighbor.

In that moment I have lost the commission of the Lord.

It is only after I have repented and made good my error that the commission returns unto me.

Therefore, the priesthood becomes a constant reminder to each individual of the determinate need to be in constant harmony with the Lord in all things.

It is in this way that the Lord uses the priesthood to teach and to train us to become like Him in all things.

51)  And so great is the import of this principle that it has been revealed and written that no man may take up this honor unto himself, but that he is called of God as was Aaron, the brother of Moses the prophet.

52)  Now, Aaron was called up to the office of high priest unto his people by the mouth of a prophet of God.

But do you suppose that this was done without Aaron’s having received any intelligence of it?

Nay, believe it not, for I say unto you that Aaron did inquire of the Lord in the matter.

And, after that he had spent much time and effort in repenting of his faults and his errors, the Lord did convey unto him through the power of the Holy Ghost the commission to do all that the prophet called him to do.

53)  And Moses and Aaron were sons of Levi and they did answer the call of the Lord and they did act according to the commission of the Lord.

Therefore, they did possess the priesthood and were justified in all that they did in righteousness.

54)  Does that mean that they were justified in all things because they had the priesthood of God?

I say unto you, Nay.

Behold how neither of them were allowed to go down into the promised land but were taken from the earth before the children of Israel received their inheritance.

55)  Wherefore, take heed all you who would claim to possess the right and power to speak and act in the name of Jesus Christ, the Peacemaker.

Yes, have a care what you do and say in His name.

For, if you seek not to be commissioned in all things and in all times, the priesthood shall be a thing of naught in you and, though you claim to have received it by ordinance after a set pattern, you shall speak the name of the Lord in vain and you shall lay upon Him actions that are not His.

Behold, you shall sow great confusion in the day that you do this.

Yea, a generation may go into confusion before the Lord will correct your evil.
