Chapter Three – Why Would God Do This?

 

Why would God come down on someone like me and reveal that He has “taken the work into His own hands,” carrying it out in a very particular way? Why would God command me to do things I never even thought of before and then force me to do them? Inspiration answers these questions.

Let me tell you that the Lord will work in this last work in a manner very much out of the common order of things, and in a way that will be contrary to any human planning. …God will use ways and means by which it will be seen that He is taking the reins in His own hands. Ellen White, Testimony to Ministers pg 300 (1885)

The answer to these questions is also in the Scriptures. God had a special purpose to fulfill for the “time of the end” or “in that day” – “the day of the Lord”:

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day (the day of the Anointing or the era when the Anointed Spirit comes to dwell and appear fully IN all who are truly God’s sons) shall not come except there is a falling away first and the man of sin (lawless one, one dedicated to wrongdoing) is exposed, the son of hell who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he as God sits in the temple of God [the human soul, in place of the conscience] showing himself that he is God [over the conscience] …And then (in that day, the day of the Anointing) shall that wicked (lawless one) be exposed whom the Lord (Messiah) shall consume with the spirit of his mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of his presence. Even him whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders [making things appear to be something entirely different than what they actually are].

And because of this, God shall send them a strong deception that they themselves will believe something that is false (a lie) so that they all might be damned who believed not the truth [of Messiah’s testimony] but had pleasure in unrighteousness (injustice, wrongdoing). 2 Thess. 2

Since the lawless one, the beast, has delighted in making things look so completely different than what they actually are, during this final judgment God was now going to do the same to him. The final events which God was going to orchestrate for this judgment, would look to the beast like something completely different than what they actually were. And by the beast’s judgments of them it would pass judgment on itself. These events began in the year 2000.

I will explain how this worked. I have never been an adulterer or a fornicator. These things are nauseous to me. All of the events God has taken me through were not sex crimes, for that would not enter my thinking. Even though my trial had nothing to do with multiple wives, and multiple wives were not mentioned in the proceedings, the jury sent the question to the judge, “How many wives does he have?” Why would the jury even ask a question having nothing to do with the trial? Why did they not ask, “How many cars does he have” or “How many times does he blow his nose in a day.”  Was I in reality convicted over other things that came from prejudice and superstition or from rumors that the jury had heard? Or had the jury been so tainted by the malicious inferences of the prosecution and the NatGeo movie that they were willing to convict me for some event that had nothing whatever to do with the charges at trial, but had everything to do with media hype and trial by publicity? Yes, everyone knew about “other things” that were not mentioned in the trial. But I will write of some of those “other things” here.

It is written concerning the time of judgment: “In that day (the day of Judgement) seven women will take hold of one man.” Isa. 4:1 This was the “sign of the son of man” in heaven (the church), and a sign which would be spoken against . . . that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed (exposed).” (Luke 2:34 & 35). As the prophecy foretold, seven women came to me, taking hold of me asking to be married. One of those women was my daughter-in-law who had not lived with my son for about a year prior to that time, and as a result of her request, she was one who was featured in the National Geographic movie about us. This particular connection with my daughter-in-law was forced upon me by God. It was an event that I would naturally have never thought of. To my natural “earth view” of things, and what I considered against the law of God, this type of “marriage” was impossible and unthinkable.

floorWhen God forced upon me the knowledge that I would become physically intimate with her, I strongly protested and said to God that I would give up my salvation rather than do that. The Holy Spirit then came upon me with great pressure, forcing me to the floor and forcing words from my mouth that were not premeditated or even natural for me, “In the name of Yahweh I will consummate the judgment.” I had never used the name Yahweh before. The NatGeo people made a mockery of this in their movie, but it was not funny to me. It was horrifying and very troubling. I then reluctantly agreed with God that I would carry out the deed that I considered an abomination, IF He would have my daughter-in-law come to my bedroom window at 1:00 a.m. and ask to be consummated with me. This would be my sign. This agreement that I made with God took place at 7:00 p.m. that evening.

After I finally agreed with God, the Spirit forced me into the bedroom where I lay on my bed in pain for five hours. I felt as though I had been beaten up, and I feared for what was to come. At midnight, I finally went to sleep and awakened at 1:00 a.m. without pain. It was then that I heard my daughter-in-law call out for me. She told me that God had awakened her and told her to come to my house and ask for consummation. Later, still in the very early morning, I obeyed the command of God and fulfilled the request of the third of the seven women. She would be the great offense to the earth.

CANNOT GOD DO WHAT HE WANTS?

I ask my accusers, is having sexual consummation with my former daughter-in-law any worse than Moses, whom they hold in high esteem as a prophet of God, killing all of the firstborn of Egypt, and then killing many of its military in the sea? Is what I did greater evil than Moses mass killing three thousand of his followers because they reverted back to their old religion while he was gone?

“Well,” they say, “but that was God.” Truly, it was God who forced me into all the events of our land in order to bring those who love wrongdoing into their own self-condemnation.

Were these strange acts that God forced me to do more evil than Elijah’s acts of murdering all the prophets of the queen? He mass murdered her religious leaders? “Oh,” you say, “But that was God.” Did not God’s law say, “Thou shalt not kill”? Yet Elijah killed them with his own sword by his own hand. Yes, I have been an omen of the destruction of all false religion, just as was Elijah. And not only the religions, but the nations as well. Those who have mocked me will perish in the flames, for God alone was responsible for all of my events. “I swear it by the one who lives forever and ever.”

I required nothing from the people. I never required any sexual activity, but it was required of me, not only by God Himself but by the “seven women” also, who were being forced by God to require it of me. They were forced to request this of me and I was forced to comply. The nations then judge themselves by judging me.

There was a very real purpose for this event. It was not adultery, and neither was it an abomination, for God had demanded it of me even against my will and strong protests. When Moses killed 3,000 of his followers for reverting to idolatry when he was gone from them for 40 days, it was not mass murder, even though God had just given the Ten Commandments which specify, “Thou shalt not kill.” When God forced upon me the words, “I will consummate the judgement,” He was creating the event that would most offend the public. Some have said, “Do you know what he did to his son?” This was the most singular event in the NatGeo documentary that would cause the people to rage.

THERE WAS NO DOUBT

In my trial it seemed to me that I was being condemned for events not even spoken about in the court proceedings, but it was all in God’s plan. “Well, he may not have actually touched the girls but he still deserved to go to prison for other things he did.” What these people were saying to God about themselves was, “I may have been good in most things but I still deserve hellfire for other things I did.”

God had a very specific reason for the seven women and for what they requested of me, besides just the fulfilling the prophetic sign for the appearing of “Messiah” “in that day.” Before each of the seven came to me, I saw them in vision, or some other divine miracle attended their request of me. With the “Two Witnesses,” who were the first two of the seven, I was exceedingly troubled by God’s instruction for me. I would lay on my bed and groan for days. I asked for a sign from God which I genuinely believed would never happen. I asked that He send their previous husbands to come and each request of me to take their wife as my wife, whom God had separated from them some time before. It was very difficult for me to do something that in my natural human “earth view” was adultery. I shared with NO other soul this request I had made to God and I felt that I was perfectly safe, for the sign I had requested could not ever actually happen. No man would do that, especially if he had never thought he should.

But the time came when both of the previous husbands came to me (one day apart) and requested that I consummate with their previous wives. To one husband I charged, “Don’t you know you are asking me to commit adultery?” He was unflustered as he replied calmly, “No, this is different.” This consummation with the “Two Witnesses” was completed on October 31st 2000, exactly and to the day 483 years after Martin Luther nailed up his 95 Theses. The 483 years, according to Daniel 9, would usher in “Messiah the Prince.” This occurred with Yeshua and was repeated with me. This “consummation” was my baptism of fire.

Six years went by and then at the beginning of the final year of the seven years, Father gave me a vision of the two women He had anointed for the consummation of judgment that would offend the people. And then at the end of that 7th year He gave me a vision of the three women He had anointed for the consummation of the “premonition” vision. The premonition I was given was that the three women would come and demand, “I will not let you go until You bless me.” This request was indicative of those who would have victory in the time of trouble we were then entering into, when Messiah would be “crucified” by the world again. But my “crucifixion” would not be for one day, but for seven years. But we knew none of this at the time. All I knew was the vision Father gave me, and then brought about very miraculously.

Thus during the last year of the last week of the 70 weeks of years prophecy of Daniel 9, the full measure of the “seven women” was completed. And the final one was just a few days from the end of the 70 weeks of years. Father fulfilled Isaiah 4:1 to the letter, and this was the physical sign for “in that day” and the commencement of the judgment, for the church and for the world.

When Dragonfly Productions published their movie in the UK on December 12, 2007, it precipitated the beginning of a time of judgment, for the church would be strongly tested by the public onslaught. But this very time period was prophesied in Daniel 12. Three and a half years earlier, on April 19, 2004, Father had instructed me to count the days to the end of the 490-year prophecy, which was October 31st 2007. There were exactly 1290 days left. Then He drew me to read Daniel 12 verses 11–12:

And from the time that the daily sacrifice (intercession) shall be taken away, and the abomination [Dragonfly Productions movie] that maketh desolate set up (set), there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waits, and comes to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. Daniel 12:11-12.

April 19, 2004 was the day that Father took away the intercessory work which He had put on me for the church when Messiah appeared in me in 2000. Now He was showing me that there were 1290 days to the end of the 70 weeks of years. The “blessing” of this time would appear 45 days later on the 1335th day for those who would bear the wait and come to that day. On December 12, 2007, the 1332nd day, Dragonfly Productions published their movie about us. As I watched the movie I silently witnessed all of the lies and deliberate distortions of our motivations, but as far as I was concerned, I felt that my work had been completed at the ending of the 490 and the world could now believe the delusions it loved.

But on the 1335, December 15, 2007, everything changed in me. The Spirit of Michael stood up in me in power, as well as in other members of the Body and it was then that we began posting the rebuttal of the lies in the “cult” movie made concerning us. Michael stood up on the 1335. One of those lies was that I predicted the end of the world for October 31, 2007. Then it was stated that I predicted the end of the world for December 15, 2007 after the first date failed. This was a total made up assertion to get a “rise” out of the stupid audience who love those kinds of stories. I told the movie maker when he asked me what would happen on those dates, “I don’t know.”

I did not commit adultery or fornication in carrying out the command of God, but this “act,” “this strange act” of God foretold in Isaiah 28:21, would damn those who do, for they would be judged by how they judged my motivations. Many of those who came against me at the time the state condemned me to prison for 10 years for praying wrong, had in their minds the seven women, just as the jury’s question revealed.

MY FACE WAS PUT UPON THEMSELVES

The state’s “expert witness,” suggested to the jury that I was “grooming” the two minor girls for sex. What she did not realize was that she was judging herself. “Sex” was all over the place in their dark imaginations and this is the deception God intended to give them because in their personal lives they had loved unrighteousness instead of truth. So God sent them “a strong delusion” that they would believe I was all about sex, so that they would condemn me for what they do, or think of doing, in their imaginations. And by condemning me, they would be condemned.

I am condemned by people who are themselves guilty for what they thought I did because it is what they do or think. Whatever they are guilty of is what they judge me for. When they judge me as an adulterer they are revealing that they are guilty of adultery, and this particularly includes the adultery of unfaithfulness to God and disbelief. I gave them my testimony that my actions were commanded by the Supreme Being, but they do not believe my testimony, and thus God’s word judges them for judging me the way they do. The judgment they give of me wouldn’t even enter their thinking if they weren’t guilty of it themselves.

God’s sign of the marriage of the “seven women” to Messiah lasted for “a time, times and a dividing of time.” And when God’s purposes for His sign of judgment had been accomplished, on October 22, 2011 He released the women from continuing to be the sign. This was 3 1/2 years from when I was attacked.

All men stand judged by how they judge me and the events that God forced me to do. Roman Catholics judged themselves over priests having sex with nuns, children, and each other, while professing to be celibate. Protestant preachers who do not protest, are judged for their visitation of pornographic websites and other lustful desires. Then all the followers of these men who drool over their sexually explicit movies and other pornography, all stand judged over their judgment of me. God made it so. I would not have mentioned these things but they condemned me to prison for far less than what they do in their minds every day. These hypocrites will perish in their own hypocrisy.

God knows what you think and what you do in your imagination. He knows it all and He declares that the nations are guilty over their great abominations. Their entertainments are utterly disgusting that are shown every day on their media. They contribute to the delinquency of minors every day in their TV and school education. New Mexico, you accused God’s activities performed by me, so now He will accuse you.

But this was all a fulfillment of the Scripture which says “…that wicked (lawless) would be exposed.” He was most assuredly exposed in my trial. And even the Supreme Court of New Mexico was exposed during my appeal process when they stated that there was “no remedy” for my illegal trial. The Appeals Court clearly, comprehensively and painstakingly laid out the laws which had been violated, writing that my constitutional rights had been compromised, and by the Supreme Court’s reversal of their clear decision it exposed itself as lawless.

The lawless one also has been exposed during my seven years of confirmation in the event referred to as the “overspreading of abominations” in Daniel 9:27. The world’s “overspreading of abominations” was why God caused the world to believe the lie that there was an “overspreading of abominations” at “Strong City.” The world would then come against us and thereby condemn themselves. That “overspreading of abominations” by the “lawless one” was revealed in the validation by the states and Supreme Court for “same-sex marriages.” (SSM)

MODERN DAY SUNDAY LAW

In the early centuries the “lawless one” passed a Sunday law. This law would make Sunday sacred instead of the seventh day Sabbath. “And he shall speak great words against the most High (calling himself the Holy Father), and shall wear out (persecute) the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.” (Dan. 7:25) This event came directly against the law of God, and the church of Rome even boasted that she was the “true church” because the church could change the law of God at will. The church of Rome was the “beast” who came against the truth.

In these days the “image to the beast,” the United States of America, repeated the actions of Rome by enforcing the laws of same-sex marriage (SSM) directly opposing the law of God. The USA declares “legal” that for which God pronounces a death sentence. “If a man also lie with mankind as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination, they shall surely be put to death, their blood shall be upon them.” Lev. 20:13

Because I was condemned for what people thought I did, and for motivations that they invented out of their own dark imaginations, God will now declare the spiritual death sentence for those who pass laws against God’s law yet condemn me to prison for what was lawful. These self-righteous hypocrites will taste the bitter fruit, for God said, “I will repay.”

THE MESSIAH CARD

 messiahtrial2In my trial, the DA made the point that I said I was “Messiah” (one anointed by God for a particular mission). Yes, that is what God named me. But that left the court without excuse, just as when Pilot put on the cross of Jesus, “King of the Jews.” Also, when National Geographic put out their movie about me entitled “Messiah on Trial,” the people were left without excuse. God forced the people to name my condemnation exactly for what it was, MESSIAH ON TRIAL. The truth was forced from their lips even in mockery.

When Jesus was accused of sedition against Rome, his accusers condemned themselves for they thought thoughts of sedition every single day of their lives. And when they said, “We have no king but Caesar,” they lied. They did not believe that for one minute, but their statement condemned them. They wanted Messiah condemned, legal or not, just as they did in my trial.

Every adulterer who condemned me for what was not adultery is condemned himself for his actual adultery or for his adulterous thoughts. Everyone who imagined that I committed “criminal sexual contact” when my testimony and the testimony of the two minors was otherwise, is condemned, for out of their own heart they invented my “crime.” God deceived the nations into judging themselves by what they thought I did, and for what they thought my motivations were, but what they thought was only true for themselves.

This is the reason God commanded the two minor ladies to request of me to let them be naked. I asked L.S. after I went to prison if I had said something or someone else said something to cause her to request what she did. She answered emphatically, “Oh no, God made me request it!” By the two minors requesting to be unclothed, God stirred the lusts of the wicked and they immediately put my face on the darkness of their own souls.

Just a little side note here. In ancient Israel, young women were often married at 12 or 13 years of age when puberty came to them. But modern man has decided that they do not get a soul until they are 18 years of age. Somehow in their minds, 16 year old A.S. did not have a soul yet, so I became responsible in their mind for what she asked of me because I was old enough to have a soul.

So God forced me, the seven women, and the two minors to incite the wicked to damn themselves. Adultery is everywhere these days and other abominations such as SSM. There has been a “great falling away” so the day of Christ (Messiah) has come upon them, but they did not watch and they did not recognize that I “came as a thief.” I came as a “criminal.” It is written of me, “He was numbered (Inmate #69395) with the transgressors…” Isa. 53:12 To their adulterous minds, I came as an adulterer. They were caught in God’s trap because they loved wrongdoing. They did not “watch.” They did not keep their garments of justice so they were found naked.

If I were guilty of a crime I would not have been able to stand in the “day of the Lord.” I would have lost my faith and bowed to the beast’s charges. I would have denied my anointing. I would have taken the “plea bargain” they offered. But it was the world of accusers who committed the crime and created the deceptions. It was the beast and the image of the beast that made one thing to be completely something else because of their own sinfulness. The “marvelous working of Satan” has arrived and the wicked destroy themselves because of it.

So this is why, and also how, God brought to pass 2 Thessalonians, Chapter 2. The “man of sin,” that “lawless one,” was exposed. He came with “lying wonders” making one thing appear to be something else. I was appointed as God’s sacrifice, His lamb, and I was used for His crucifixion.

When I write these hard sayings I do not wish any ill will. I feel no condemnation for the people. I say these things only as a factual matter. I know the science of the soul. I believe, however, that people have no idea what they are doing. They think by crucifying me that they are doing something good and taking a stand for what is best, as those did who crucified Jesus. The people thought that by killing Jesus the nation would be better off. But killing Jesus actually destroyed them. They did not know that they were killing themselves.

Some people have feared that other ministers would use my actions as an example and put naked girls on their bed. I would never have done that except for the direct command of God and I would never, EVER, recommend that other ministers take this action because they are untrained and full of their own lusts. It would be a disaster. Many of them see young girls as a sex object, but I do not. But I have no doubt that some would try to copy me, only to their own destruction.

But God has done all these things, as it is written:

Therefore wait for Me, says the LORD, against the day when I arise as accuser. For it is My decision to gather together the nations, to assemble the kingdoms, in order to pour out upon them My wrath, all My blazing anger. For in the fire of My jealousy shall all the earth be consumed.” Zeph. 3:8, NAB

“Behold, I come as a thief.
