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.
