Greetings to all my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus,
God Of The Dawn Light Appears To The Ancients in The Americas
GOD OF THE DAWN LIGHT APPEARS TO THE ANCIENT ONES;
The American Indians Living On The American Continent
So long ago, in times long vanished, are the words of a spiritual leader from one of the original 12 tribes. And his words speak of stories as a bridge from the past to connect future generations of his people, that perhaps they might persuade them to remember the “Great Healer,” their Redeemer. They speak to all the 12 tribes, if they should obtain these things. For the things some men regard to be of great worth, both to the body and soul others trample under their feet. Even the very God of Israel, do men trample under their feet, and listen not to the voice of his counsels. The world, because of their wickedness, will judge him to be of no worth. They lash him, and beat him and he suffers it. Truly they spit upon him and he suffers it, because of his loving kindness and his long-suffering towards mankind.
For this purpose Chee-Zoos (God of the dawn light) should come among the tribe of Judah, among those who are the more wicked part of the world. And they shall kill him, and there is no other nation on earth that would kill their God. Should the mighty miracles by his hand be witnessed among other nations, they would repent, and know that he be their God.
Because of priest crafts and secret combinations of wickedness, they at Jerusalem will stiffen their necks against him, that he be killed. As for those who are at Jerusalem, they will be hated by all people, because they killed the God of Israel, turning their hearts aside, rejecting signs and wonders, and power and glory of their God. They shall wander in the flesh, and perish, and become a hiss and a byword, and be hated by all nations.
Looking down the vista of history, prophecies were given of this land (the Americas) concerning three days of darkness, which would be a sign of the death of Chee-Zoos. These were more especially given to the 12 tribes which are scattered even those who should inhabit the islands of the sea. It was said at that day the Lord God would visit all the House of Israel. Some with his voice, because of their righteousness, giving them great joy, others with thunderings and lightnings of his power, by fire, and by the opening of the earth, and by mountains which are carried up. Now because of the groanings of the earth, many of the kings of the islands of the sea shall be overcome by fear to exclaim,” The God of nature suffers.”
The time had grown closer to the day the prophecy would be fulfilled. It is recorded that it was a sultry day and the air was heavy and all the animals were taking cover. There was a feeling in the air of intense expectation as if something enormous was about to happen. All was changed in one day of terror and destruction throughout all this land. Suddenly the earth began to tremble. The roar became deafening. The land shook as if in a spasm, and with the roar of a hundred oceans the mountain collapsed the rocks fell, downward, dropping like rain. The destruction did last for about the space of three hours, and it was said by some that the time was greater.
There was thick darkness on all the face of this land, so much that the people could feel the vapor of darkness. Light was not seen for three days. There were groanings, and howling, and weeping among all the people, because of the darkness and the great destruction that did come on them.
Suddenly, out of the heavens came a voice among all the remaining inhabitants of this land, crying, wo, wo, wo unto this people. I bring to you a message from the God who has no image. There are but two trails to follow. One is the way of my Father and the other is this thing called, the law of the jungle. You have chosen to follow the latter. It is because of evil and abominations that has brought destruction upon your fair sons and daughters. You think of yourselves as strong men who crush and take from a weaker neighbor. Where are the nations who lived by the law of the jungle? For the devil laughs, and his angels rejoice having lead brother against brother in tribal wars. Where are your strong men who lived by evil? They face judgment for breaking the Great Law of my Father, greater than all earthly precepts; that is love one another.
O house of Israel, whom I have spared, ye remnant of the seed of Joseph, were not these things written upon the plates of brass which your father Lehi brought out of Jerusalem? My people, you have had warnings to repent and return unto me with full purpose of heart. But if ye do not, the places of your dwellings shall become desolate, until the time of the fulfilling of the covenant to your fathers.
After the people had heard these words, they began to weep and howl again, because of the loss of their kindred and friends.
Thus the following morning did the three days pass away, and the darkness was gone and the earth did cease to tremble, and the dreadful groanings did end. And their mourning was turned into joy, and their lamentings into praise and thanksgiving unto the Lord Chee-Zoos, their redeemer. Nevertheless it was the more righteous part of the people who were saved. They were spared and not sunk and buried in the earth nor drowned in the depths of the sea, neither were they burned by fire, nor fallen upon by the many rocks and crushed to
Now there was a great multitude gathered together near the temple by the sea, which did stand in awe and wonder one with another as they beheld the great and marvelous change that had taken place. They were also conversing about this Chee-Zoos of whom the sign had been given concerning his death.
Suddenly out across the ocean, the people saw something white gliding toward them upon the surface of the water with the rhythmical ease of a man walking. As they watched, they heard a voice, as if it came out of heaven. It was not a harsh or loud voice, nevertheless it did pierce them that did hear it, to the center, in so much that no part of their frame that did not cause to quake. It did pierce them to their very soul, and did cause their hearts to burn. And it said unto them, “Behold, my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased, in whom I have glorified my name, hear him.
As the spot of white came closer, they stood in amazement, for they could see that this was a Fair God, man-like in form, but unlike their people. Soon they could see him clearly, the gold of the dawn-light shinning behind and around him, making a halo of his long-curly hair and beard. They saw the foam-like swish of his garments. As he came upon the wet sand they saw his garments were dry.
Now they knew that a God stood among them. For none but Gods can walk on water! From his garments, so foam white, they looked to his face; he was bearded, and pale of feature, unlike the red man. His eyes, were strange eyes, gray-green as the depths of the water,(and just like it), ever changing.
The pale one raised his palms before them and the people saw in each one a large cross torn in the flesh, (some said that it stood for the four directions).
He spoke to the people, saying, “Behold, I am Chee-Zoos, of whom the prophets testified should come into the world. I am the light and the life of the world, I have drunk out of that bitter cup which the Father has given me, and have glorified the Father in taking upon me the sins of the world.
My father who dwells beyond the rainbow has sent me. He lives in the lava, moves in the oceans, breathes in the windstorm, and made all things from ant to tiger. The father has sent me to you, who are of the house of Israel, and this is the land of your inheritance, and the father has given it to you. Not at any time has the father given me commandment that I should tell it unto your relatives at Jerusalem, concerning you or the other tribes, whom the father led away out of that land. You were separated from them because of their wicked priesthood who led the people astray, and it is because of this great evil that they know not of you.”
Now when Chee-Zoos, (God of the Dawn Light), had spoken these words, the whole multitude fell to the earth, for they remembered that it had been prophesied among them that Chee-Zoos should show himself unto them after his ascension into heaven.
As the Lord spoke, he bade them to come forth, that they might thrust their hands into his side, and also to feel the prints of the nails in his hands and feet, that they might know that he was the God of Israel, and the God of the whole earth, and been slain for the sins of the world.
He said, “The law is fulfilled that was given unto Moses. I am he that gave the law, and I am he, who covenanted with my people Israel, therefore, the law in me is fulfilled, for I have come to fulfill the law; and thus, it has an end in me. I am the law, and the light; look unto me, and endure to the end, and you shall live, for unto him that endures to the end will I give eternal life.
I do not come to destroy the prophets, for many prophecies have not been fulfilled in me, and the covenant which I have made with my people, is not all fulfilled. And Cee-Zoos told them many things, of how their ancestral threads run in many directions, and that he must visit them all.
He slowly made his way to a hill and stood high above the people. Staring off toward the horizon he had a sad look in his eyes. It was as if some great burden weighed down upon him. For truly a strange and heavy burden had been laid upon him, and he could scarcely endure its dark foreboding. Then at last, he began to speak of the visions; these strange visions which were now growing upon him, which had to do with the sacrificers. “After my departure, you will live in peace a short cycle of golden years. But once again the ways of the jungle return. My precious people will once again return to their wicked ways of which I have spoken.”
Ever more clearly could he see into the distant future, even unto the exact date. Now his vision was sweeping the third cycle; long after the fall of Tullan, the capitol of the Toltec Empire, the mighty and beautiful Tula. . The people gasped aloud in horror because they were the Toltecs of which he spoke. Nay, not by war as you might be thinking. This city’s end shall come with an earthquake, many generations later. Within the mountains can be heard the restless drums of the dancing sacrificers as they march to power through out the broad land. Armies shall come to Tula for plunder, thus begins another cycle, called the cycle of the sacrificers. .
“Horror shall come to the Broad Land. All shall dwell in fear of the priesthood who kill their captives to feed their idols. Daily my father’s law is broken. Hourly do the great stones drip with fresh blood because they think these rocks should be nourished. Watching this cycle of sacrificing is a heavy burden to my soul. Poor, pitiful, misled people; listen carefully that you may record my words, after I am but a memory. . There is a cycle beyond this one, if they do not heed this warning. Before that cycle comes upon them, there is a man pale of feature and like unto me, bearded. Trust him not.
He is not Cee-Zoos. He leads the sacrificers into battle. He calls himself Huit-zil-po-chitli, the Bearded One Who Conquers (Cortez). These white strangers will come with their suits of shining metal, and the rods which make much noise and kill at a distance.”
Then he bowed his head in silence. When again he began to speak, he wept, and the people noticed the sound of his voice became husky.
“Once I had great hope for these people, for I saw them kneel and kiss the sweet earth, and I saw the shadow of the great cross which they carried with them. Yea, I had great faith in these people. Now I must warn you against them.”
“Carry your great books into the jungle. Place your histories and records of all the teachings the Great Spirit has taught you, in deep caverns where none of these men can find them. For children of war are these bearded strangers. They speak my precepts, but their ears do not listen. They follow only the law of the jungle. They seek naught but the golden metal as if that would buy them passage into the isles of the blessed.”
“They have but one love and that is for weapons. Ever more horrible do these weapons become, until finally, they reach for the one which is ultimate.”
“Keep hidden your books, oh my children, for the day will come when they will be precious.”
“Near the end of the cycle of warring strangers I will proceed to do a marvelous work for your children of the future. I will send a forerunner, who will be of great worth in preparing the way for my work to come forth. He will be great in driving the evil from the hearts of the white man. He will soften their hearts making them ready to receive more truth. He will also do a great work in exposing the secret combinations that their mother nation has infected their government with. This secret combination will momentarily be driven back to its mother nation across the many waters.”
“Oh my people your prayers will come forth unto your children in the form of a book. And another man will I raise up from among these white men, to do this great work. He will be given this gift, of interpretation, and none other because he is weak in my eyes.”
“And after your words, which will come forth from the dust, because of his weakness, and because of this secret combination which shall enter into his midst, his work of seer shall be cut off. Because he listens to men and does not fear God, he is no longer a lover of the plain and precious words of your ancestors which he shall bring forth. Because he does not obey Gods command he will be sent strong delusion, and they will form a church around Your Book, and say lo, the church is restored and we have the blessings of God. They will mistake my truth and church,(which fled or was driven into the wilderness), for priesthood, and build them selves up to get gain.
They will say, God said this, and God said that, and all other churches are no good. And they will twist Gods words to say the priesthood has been restored unto us from the wilderness and we have the truth of the words which came from the dust which give us power and dominion over all churches. This will bring anger upon them and they will be hated by all men.”
For this cause of keeping your ancient record unto themselves, they will be looked down upon by all the world, and but few will listen. For this God will set his hand again a second time to recover his people by raising up others to do this work. Until my people, the branch of Israel on this most precious land be restored to the knowledge of who they are, and the promises that God made to them, the white man will remain in his lost and fallen state.
But if the white man repents and does as the words in the book say, and no more harden their hearts against the house of Israel, I will establish my church, (you my children,) among them. Only then can they come in unto the covenant, and be numbered among this the remnant of Jacob, to whom God has given this land for their inheritance. Then will the white man be allowed to assist my people, the remnant of Jacob. This then will cause great repentance to sweep the land like a flood, which is the cause to establish Gods kingdom on earth.
“Listen well to all I have taught you. Return not to the Sacrificers. Their path will lead to the last destruction. Know that the end will come in five full cycles, for five, the difference between the earth’s number and that of (Venus) the Gleaming Dawn Star, is the number of these children of warfare. For five full cycles of the Dawn Star, the rule of the warring strangers will go on to greater and greater orgies of destruction.”
