Hello once again and welcome firstly to our members and also to our visitors. We hope that the week has been good to you and that the Lords hand has helped guide you on your way.

This week the blog is being written by the Prophet of the church Matthew Philip Gill, so over to the Prophet for this weeks subject....

As the Prophet of the church I am always asked questions by outsiders on doctrine and also which of the scriptures we embrace in The latter Day Church of Jesus Christ. Firstly we only use those scriptures authorised by the Lord and also of Joseph Smith Jr, because we are Mormons and he was our founding Prophet and to use anything else would be a server lack of judgement. However over the last couple of weeks we have been asked exactly which scriptures we use so here it is for all those who want to know, and i will explain one of the reason we do this. We use the 1830 Book of Mormon, the 1835 Doctrine and Covenants the Inspired version of the Bible and of course the new scriptures that we have been given through revelation they are the book of Jeraneck and the book of Prophesy and Revelation.

Now to explain one of the reasons why we us 1835 Doctrine and Covenants. Well this can be explained in few ways but I will us the following. Firstly the 1835 Doctrine and Covenants was the only copy of the Doctrine and Covenants to be approved by the Prophet Joseph Smith Jr and to be sustained by the general membership of the church which is a must for all scripture as outlined in the Doctrine and Covenants. The other reason is that you will only find sections that Joseph Smith Jr approved to be their for example in the 1835 edition you will not find any mention of subjects such a Polygamy and also the most famous American Civil Car prophesy...the reason behind this is that Joseph Smith Jr never wrote any thing either in favour of Polygamy or about the American Civil War.

Many LDS members believe that Joseph Smith Jr prophesied the American Civil War in 1832 but it fails to appear in any contemporary writing of the time even though in the LDS edition of the Doctrine and Covenants section 87 it is dated December 25, 1832, this did not appear in the 1833 Book of Commandments or in any edition of the Doctrine and Covenants or in any LDS scripture for that matter until after the Civil War began! It was first printed in the 1851 Pearl of Great Price in England. So to all those LDS members that keep bombarding my office with emails and letters asking why we have gone astray from the true church I say this, maybe you need to look a little closer at your own scriptural faults and not at ours. Joseph Smith Jr was a great man a man that used sense not illogical thinking, i mean why write a prophesy as important and the American Civil war and leave it out of not only the book of commandments but the 1835 Doctrine and Covenants....I mean it smacks of things that are a little dark and suspect on the part of the LDS church.

So to some up i say this stop being so blind stop being sheep look a little deeper, its all there you just have to have the desire to look a little beyond the end of your own nose, for heavens sake just do it. If we can be of any assistance then please contact us. God Bless

We also have a new picture from our artist this week we hope you like it.

here is a scene of Jeraneck finishing the record of the people of light with is son standing by his side. I think that the artist has done a great job in capturing the council chamber and the last days of the righteous.

If you would like any more information on the Book of Jeraneck please contact us we will be morethan willing to help.

"What if the Book of Mormon had been written by Dr. Seuss?"

Nephi: Of goodly parents I was born I've never drunk, I've never sworn This is Lehi, he's my dad Laman, Lemuel, they are bad And who is this? Why this is Sam Yes, this is Sam;
Sam: Sam I am
Laman: That Sam I am, that Sam I am I do not like that Sam I am
Sam: In a tent, my father dwelt
Laman: And it's so hot, I think I'll melt
Lemuel: Our father's brain is out of whack
Laman: Yeah, it's too hot, I'm going back
Lehi: Then go and get the plates my dear
Laman: On second thought, I'm staying here
Nephi: You said you'd leave and go away Now all you want to do is stay?
Lemuel: That Nephi always gets his way
Laman: Here we are in this damp cave
Sam: We would not be here if you'd behave
Nephi: I will go and I will do There's the angel, that's my cue Laban's had too much to drink Now he'll lose his head, I think
Nephi: Look what I found, a brother from the quorum
Sam: We will take him home, we will call him Zoram
Lemuel: Oh great, another pathetic life form
Laman: Our gold and silver we have spent I do not like it in this tent
Lemuel: I cannot read the Liahona I must have drunk too much Corona
Laman: We hate it here, we have no lives
Lehi: Then go back to the city and get some wives
Lehi: A tree, a tree, I see a tree The fruit is white, the fruit is free A floating building, could it be? Why do they laugh and stare at me? Laman, Lemuel, come and see
Laman: We will not eat your precious fruit
Lemuel: We will not wear a tie and suit
Laman: We will not help you build your boat
Lemuel: We do not think that it will float
Laman: No not this boat, it will not float Not even in a shallow moat I do not care what Nephi wrote
Lemuel: We will not eat your fruit I say
Laman: We will not eat it on a tray
Lemuel: And we won't eat it in a tent Not even if your clothes you rent
Laman: We'd rather have a can of spam
L & L: We will not eat it, Sam I am
Sam: You do not like it, so you say Try it, try it, and you may Try it and you may I say
Laman: Sam, if you will let us be, We will try it, you will see
L&L: Say, we like this fruit of life Sorry that we caused such strife You've saved us from an awful jam Thank you, thank you, Sam I am

Real Creation of Eve

So, God asked Adam, "What is wrong with you?" Adam said he didn't have anyone to talk to. God said that He was going to make Adam a companion and that it would be a woman. God said, "This person will gather food for you, cook for you, and when you discover clothing she'll wash it for you. She will always agree with every decision you make. She will bear your children and never ask you to get up in the middle of the night to take care of them. She will not nag you and will always be the first to admit she was wrong when you've had a disagreement. She will never have a headache and will freely give you love and passion whenever you need it." Adam asked God, "What will a woman like this cost?" And God replied, "An arm and a leg." Adam said, "So, what could I get for a rib?" And, the rest is history.

Welcome once again to the blog site for
The Latter Day Church of Jesus Christ.
We have seen many things happen in the news this week that have been prophesied in the scriptures….once again a sign that the times of the gentiles is soon to be fulfilled. This makes us all very proud to be apart of the true church of Jesus Christ. To all those out there that are not members and who are worried, remember that we live in the times spoken of by the great Prophet of the Old and New testament, troubling times yes, but we look forward to the reward at the end.

This week’s blog is a little different. The Latter Day Church of Jesus Christ has commissioned some work to be done for the Book of Jeraneck. After a long time looking we were finally led to a wonderful artist who has taken the job and who has put a lot of work and passion in to this project already. On this blog today we are going to be showcasing some of the work that is being done, and some of the work that has already been completed. When the work has finally been completed we will have them bound in with the second edition of the Book of Jeraneck. We hope that every one will enjoy looking at them and to all those that have read the book we hope that this will give you a glimpse in to the world of the People of Jeraneck. We also hope that for all those that have never read the book that these pictures will give you some idea of what the book is about and also inspire you to contact us for your copy of the book. Enjoy!

The pictures above are entitled
"The chosen brothers"
Here we see the artists stages of building the picture. The first picture builds the basics of the drawing, the second gives us a basic pencil line picture while the last one gives us the finished article in all its glory

The above pictures are a collection of pictures that we have had done the centre picture is entitled "My last words". The one to the right is a picture of the sacred temple after its destruction once again these are just drafts at the moment they still need colour and finishing. But you can see that the artist has made a wonderful attempt at what she has been asked to do.

We at The Latter Day Church of Jesus Christ hope that you have enjoyed looking at the pictures and we hope that this inspires you to find out more. If you do then please contact us we are more than willing to help. Remember the Lord says "Ask and ye shall receive, knock and it shall be opened unto you" We wish you all a very good week. Good bless.

Be Not Troubled
Matthew 24:6-27

Over the past couple of weeks we have seen the most unusual events take place here in our own country events that have sparked people’s emotions and have coursed people to ask why, why are these things happening to us. We have experienced extremely bad weather for the summer which have resulted in floods, we have seen terrorism rear its ugly head again and because of those things we have experienced death. We live in a country that was set aside by God for the righteous a lot like the American continent. However we have broken the covenant that we made with God and now we are reaping what we have sown. The Book of Jeraneck speaks of the times we are living in, it say that “When this record shall come forth it will come forth in a time of great tribulation a time of great suffering for the people of this land, it will come forth at the very time when the Lord of heaven comes for the second time” It warns us that if we do not repent of what we have done and come back to the straight path of the Lord then our nation and our people will fall and be destroyed just as his people were. However we are told in the Bible to "be not troubled". Our Lord told us not to be troubled, because these are only the beginning of the birth of a new world led by God himself. See Matt. 24:8. I believe that God is warning not only the world but most important of all this nation. We have broken his covenant and we have gone away from him and these events are warnings designed to turn us to Him. But with all children who have rebelled and lost their way we are ignoring these signs and we are trying to pass them of as anything other than God sending us signs and warnings we would rather blame global warming and other phenomenon rather than admit that we have been unrighteous toward God. However what we are seeing and experiencing is just a prelude. The warnings are going to continue during the next few years, and they will build in intensity and ferocity.

We live in very troublesome and uncertain times. With all the worldwide disasters and wars, most people see a dark and fearful future and have no idea of their eternal destiny, people don't know which way to turn, people are lost and are asking why, why is all this happening to us. The reason they are asking these things is because they have lost their way they have sold themselves out to the world or to that which is easy, they have sold or lost their birth right and that is the gospel of Jesus Christ. We here at The Latter Day church of Jesus Christ are here to tell you that you wont get lasting help and hope form world leaders or even our own leaders here in the UK. The only person who can help you out of this is the Saviour Jesus Christ. It is his redeeming love that will be with you forever. We are as has been said already nearing the coming of the Saviour for the second time, but before that we will have to go through many more troubled times, are we ready to journey through them and stay the course? Do any of you now what that course is? To all those that don’t and to all those that want to find out then please come to us and we will show you the way. In the not to distant future we will be asked to sign up to things that the Bible forbids. We will be asked to lay down our liberty and freedom for the procurement of security for the nation. We must remember that we have been told that all these things will be asked of us not by God but by the world and therefore by the devil. God has told us what we are to do in these troubled and uncertain times. He has though modern day revelation told us that we are to be aloof form the world that we are to be ready to flee from the world and not to sacrifice our beliefs for a bowl of potage we must be ready to answer the call. Dark and troubled times lay ahead. The darkness has descended and will not be lifted for many years yet, of course during these dark times we may have a glimpse of light and may think that the worst has passed, this is not so for only the Lord will deliver us from this state of affairs. No amount of sealed bags of wheat will save you. It is up to us for the sake of our God and our Family's to nurture the light of the gospel and to be ready to defend what we believe in. No matter the consequence.

I think that you will find the following scripture to be of some comfort. It just shows that god is concerned for us so much so that he told ancient prophets about our day so that we may be able to be for warned. Read and take heed. We are always ready to stand ready and to answer any question that you might have. please call us.

Matthew 24: 6-27

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, whoso readeth, let him understand:

16 Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains:

17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

19 And woe unto them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days!

20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day:

21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the
world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

24 For there shall arise false Christ’s, and false prophets, and shall shew great
signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

25 Behold, I have told you before.

26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

27 For as the lightning cometh out of the beast, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
